Smackdown

*Smackdown opens with WWE champion John Cena coming to the ring. Finlay and King Booker confront him. Batista makes the save. Smackdown General Manager Teddy Long comes out and rules Cena will wrestle Finlay in tonight’s main event.

*WWE Tag Team champions Paul London & Brian Kendrick & Jimmy Wang Yang defeated WWE Cruiserweight champion Gregory Helms & William Regal & Dave Taylor when Yang pinned Helms. Match was said to be OK.

*Matt Hardy pinned Joey Mercury with the Twist of Fate in a short match, so it looks like Mercury is on the Smackdown brand now.

*Ken Kennedy and MVP argue backstage but finally agree to work together to take out Kane and the Undertaker tonight.

*A hearse is parked in the aisle leading to the ring.

*The Undertaker and Kane vs. Ken Kennedy and MVP match results in a double countout. Undertaker and MVP brawl to the back. Kennedy gets in the hearse and teases running over Kane but the lights go out. When they come back on, Undertaker is inside the car with Kennedy who runs off and Kane does the situp. Crowd was really into the entire scenario.

*Chavo Guerrero defeated Funaki. Guerrero said on the mic before the match that Chris Benoit owed Vicky Guerrero an apology. Benoit came out and watched the match. After Chavo won, Benoit attacked him and locked him in a Sharpshooter. Vicky slapped Benoit, who stares at her and leaves.

*Vito pinned Sylvan with a rollup in a match that didn’t get over with the live crowd.

*The Miz comes out to eat “crazy foods” He ate what was said to be a pig’s tongue and monkey brains (hey someone watched Indiana Jones and Temple of Doom over the weekend!) but balked at eating worms. He went to place the lid back on the pot of worms when Boogeyman popped out with a mouthful and Miz ran off.

*WWE champion John Cena pinned Finlay.

Dark Match:

*WWE World champion Batista pinned Finlay.
