WWE open, recap of what happened last week, Smackdown open, pyro and ballyhoo.  Josh Matthews, Michael Cole, and Booker T are the announcers.  Tonight, Edge defends the World Championship against Dolph Ziggler with Vickie Guerrero as the referee!  Tony Chimel is the ring announcer.

Tony Chimel introduces Ricardo Rodriguez, who introduces Alberto Del Rio.  The ring is all decorated.  They show Del Rio beating up Hornswoggle last week.  Del Rio cuts a promo.  I can tell this is going to be his standard promo for the next 2 months.  WWE Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston comes out, cuts a promo, and threatens Del Rio with a Singapore cane.  Del Rio begs off.  Kofi winks and canes Del Rio, then tears up the decorations.

Moments ago, ^ happened.
