While Kurt Angle was meeting with Mark Jindrak & Luther Reigns, Amy Webber came onto him. She said she wanted to talk to Angle in private, so Angle got rid of Jindrak and Regins and they had their private meeting in front of the camera. She discussed business possibilities in the future with him. Angle said they should talk more later and she invited him to her private dressing room.
The “West Side Story” Royal Rumble ad aired. That got one of the better ovations of the night.

Torrie Wilson and Jackie welcomed Daniel Puder to Smackdown. He introduced himself as Tough Enough champion. Torrie said Jackie was a Tough Enough winner, as well. Puder said he remembered her begging to get back with her boyfriend after she cheated on him. The woman walked away in disgust. Puder said “all woman are alike, they all want my money.” Ted DiBiase, eat your heart out.
John Cena and Kenzo Suzuki had a “battle rap,” one of the worst segments Smackdown has ever had. Michael Cole was the host of the battle and they announced that next week on Smackdown in Tampa the two would meet for the US Title. Suzuki came out dressed up like Torrie Wilson on the Great American Bash DVD cover. He said Cena was about to be served and you couldn’t understand a thing he was saying. The fans chanted “what” again during each pause in his rap and they might have actually meant it. Cena’s rapped was filled with sexual jokes about Suzuki and Cole. He told Hiroko “If I get ya in the right place, I don’t do make up but I’ll help with the white face.” Suzuki said Hiroku liked him and had her sing “Crazy In Love,” which was popular last year. Cena had diva’s named Lauren, Rochelle and Michelle come out. Suzuki started making eyes at one of the divas and Hiroku jumped her. Cena tried to break it up and he punched Suzuki out of the ring. Nice to see them actually try to build to a match for next week but this segment went way too long and the fans hated all of it except for a few of Cena’s lines.
They announed a Tag Team Title Fatal Four Way for next week’s Smackdown, Mysterio & Van Dam vs Guerrero & Booker vs Jindrak & Reigns vs Basham Brothers.
Doug Basham def. Rob Van Dam
Angle went into Amy’s dressing room. He heard the shower running so he went in. He undressed himself as he waited for her to get out. Finally, the shower curtain opened and it was Joy, who was showering from Carlito’s spit. She decided that was less coool than being spit on and ran for dear life out of the dressing room. The fans seemed confused because they didn’t really seem to know who Amy or Joy were, nevermind that they’re different women. Angle chased her, telling her that it was Amy’s dressing room and they ran into Big Show. Show chased Angle to the ring where he cleaned house on Angle then Jindrak and Reigns.
JBL was walking through the back with Amy and Jordan. They walked over to the dressing room where Joy showered and removed the sign with Amy’s name, revealing Joy’s.
Heidenreich was punching a wall as Heyman told him to get ready for the match. Heidenreich said he wasn’t scared of the Undertaker, he didn’t like caskets.
Undertaker def. Heidenreich and Paul Heyman
Undertaker def. JBL & Orlando Jordan in a casket match Pretty boring but the crowd was into it everytime they got close to putting Taker in the casket. In time he made his comeback and put both JBL and Jordan in the casket. It was never announced as a title or non-title match…there was just no announcement at all.
