Zack Ryder starts off with a video package recapping his victory last week to become the General Manager this week. What will happen tonight?
We are live on tape from Denver, Colorado and your announcers are Booker ‘Crystal Lake’ T, Josh ‘Takes Manhattan’ Mathews, and Michael ‘vs. Freddy vs. Ash’ Cole.
The General Manager makes his presence known early and he makes his way to the ring.
Zack welcomes everyone to the first Friday Night Zackdown. In his first act, he will organize the world’s largest fist pump with everyone in the building. Zack says that this will be the greatest Smackdown ever.
Alberto Del Rio’s music interrupts and Ricardo Rodriguez introduces Alberto as he makes his way to the ring.
Alberto says that he thought Teddy Long was a joke as a General Manager, but to have this stupid clown who calls himself the Internet Champion of the World? Alberto says that they have to be kidding. On Sunday, he becomes the World Champion and then he will rule Smackdown.
Zack corrects Alberto and calls it Zackdown. Zack says that someone wants to get his hands on Del Rio and he will be Alberto’s opponent . . . right now.
