We kick off SmackDown with Teddy Long introducing Rey Mysterio. He talks about being home on SmackDown. He calls Jeff Hardy the better man and invites anyone to challenge him for the Intercontinental Championship.
From there, Chris Jericho comes out. He demands a title match against Mysteriom who responds by pushing him to the ground. Rey leaves and Jeff Hardy enters. He says Jericho has to beat him to get a title match. The main event is set!
- Mike Knox defeats R-Truth. Knox hits a kick to the face of R-Truth, hits his finisher, and wins via pinfall.
