A match with Cody Rhodes and John Morrison came up next. It was a very good, long match. Again, the newcomer went over after Cody hit the Cross Rhodes for the win.
After that was the segment of the night between edge and christian. Edge came down first to give his farewell to smackdown. Claiming he felt like it was always HIS show, and that he loved the fans. Christian then came down and he and Edge had some good luck exchanges in dialogue before Christian said that since he’s known Edge for so long that he knew he was lying. He was lying about loving the fans. Edge then pulls his heel turn by saying that Christian was right and that he’s a master psychologist and had the fans eating out of his hand with the whole spear, spear, spear thing.
During the course of the promo they said about people wanting Edge and Christian reunions, but Christian said he did not want that. He didn’t want Edge & Christian, he wanted Edge versus Christian. Edge said no, and after some minor physical confrontation Edge escaped the ring. Christian then said instead of saying spear, spear, spear that he had a new saying. Then he started the "na na na na hey hey goodbye" stuff to which the audience reacted well.
Solid heel turn overall, and the crowd ate it up in the segment. The crowd went against Christian when he said Edge was lying, but they quickly reverted back to Christians side after Edge said he was right. Great promo.
