SmackDown: (Airing Friday at 8:00p.m. ET)
As SmackDown comes on the air, Edge cuts a promo talking about The Undertaker. Vickie Guerrero says who even knows if Undertaker is in the building tonight.
Batista’s music hits and he makes his way to ringside with a huge ovation.
SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero is out next with a ridiculous amounts of heat. She announces that Batista & a partner of his choice will take on Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins later tonight. I am told that she is drawing so much heat, she is hardly able to get the announcement out.
* Matt Hardy b. Elijah Burke
* Chuck Palumbo vs. Finley & Hornswoggle
* It is announced that The Undertaker will be a special guest on “The Cutting Edge” tonight.
Edge shows clips of The Undertaker’s career.
* CM Punk b. John Morrison
* Batista comes out and says he doesn’t need a partner for his match tonight. Vickie comes out with Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins and says it will be a handicap match. Batista then says just because he doesn’t need a partner doesn’t mean he doesn’t have one. Big Shows comes out and wheels Vickie to the back.
Up next is Batista & Big Show vs. Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins in a Handicap match.
