We are live on tape from Houston, Texas and your announcers are Michael ‘Since we are in Booker’s home town, tonight’s show is all about me’ Cole, Josh ‘Since we are in Booker’s home town, I can dig it. . . Sucka!!!’ Mathews, and Booker ‘Tell me you did not just say that’ T.
The current World Champion, Edge comes to the ring to talk to the people of Houston as well as the WWE Universe.
In case you missed last week’s show we see highlights of the contract signing ceremony and Michael Cole tells us that Edge ‘shot first’ and then we see Christian going after Alberto Del Rio, and tangentially to help Edge.
Edge looks at the Wrestlemania sign and tells Alberto twenty-three days. In twenty-three days they will meet for the World Title at Wrestlemania. He says that a little blood and a busted nose is not going to stop him. He asks Alberto if he knows who he is and what he had to get through to get here. Edge says that he is not looking for a match, he wants a fight. Edge tells Alberto that he is not giving him a choice or an option.
If he does not come out, he will find him. Edge says that he does not care if it is a parking lot, a hotel room, or a bingo hall . . . he will find Alberto. He wants to make sure that Alberto understands.
Alberto’s music plays and he does not drive out. He is accompanied by Brodus Clay. Alberto asks Edge who does he think he is to call him out. He wants to know if Edge knows who he is.
Edge says that he is a Ricky Martin lookalike who is trying to reform Menudo with King Hippo. He tells Alberto that he is a cocky, egotistical, arrogant coward.
Alberto says that he is the man who sends Edge home every week in pain. He is Alberto Del Rio and he is with Brodus Clay. Alberto says that he is the man who is going to replace Edge’s legacy with his destiny.

Tonight will be one of the most historic nights in the history of Smackdown. Brodus Clay and Alberto Del Rio will face one of the greatest tag teams ever, reunited for the first time in ten years, Edge and Christian.
Christian is in the locker room getting ready for his match and Matt Striker stops by to get some comments from Christian about reforming his tag team with Edge. Christian points out that it has been ten years. A lot of things can happen in ten years. Christian runs down all of the technological breakthroughs that we have seen in that time. Christian says that we haven’t seen the two guys who started this decade off right. We haven’t seen the two guys who reeked of awesomeness. That was then and this is now.
