Since Raw started with a wrestling match, Smackdown needs to be different so it is time for Carlito’s Cabana as Carlito comes to the ring. Carlito welcomes everyone to the coolest show, Carlito’s Cabana. He reminds us that last week he made an offer to the Big Show. It was an offer that Big Show should not have refused. Carlito says that nobody says no to him because if you say no . . . well, let’s see the footage from last week when Big Show was felled by a poisoned apple. Carlito says that he was right about something . . . that was cool. Carlito says that it was good that they were able to get all of the chunks from last week out of the Cabana’s carpet.

We are back with a message “Presented by the Friends and Fans of John Bradshaw Layfield”. It starts with John Cena’s commercial, but it fades to Bradshaw who says that he is going to the inner city to talk to his fans who misguidedly buy his CD and love his music. He is going to tell them what Cena is all about. Bradshaw says that Bocelli never tried to shoot Pavarotti. George Jones never fired a pistol at Merle Haggard because they are not thugs. Rappers are thugs and they belong in jail. Bradshaw goes over some of the song lyrics and says that Cena is espousing having sex with women not his wife. He reminds us that there is no warning label on his book, while there is one on Cena’s CD. The people will make their decision with their wallets to tell John that he is wrong.
