The show begins with a cold open of the arena audience applauding. Justin Roberts is in the ring and introduces Edge. Edge comes out to his hometown fans in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to an enormous pop. They definitely love Edge here in Toronto. The television announcers at ringside finally chime in, as Josh Matthews and Michael Cole hype up Edge being on the show some more as Edge continues to soak in the applause from the fans. "Damn I missed that," Edge says to kick things off. Edge talks about how it's nice to be in a WWE ring again. He talks about how bad he misses being a wrestler, as he starts getting a bit choked up. Edge talks about how he's hosting "The Cutting Edge" with Mark Henry and Randy Orton later tonight on Smackdown.
Cody Rhodes InteruptsAs he continues to talk, he is interupted by Cody Rhodes. Rhodes plugs Edge's appearance on "Haven" tonight after Smackdown, saying he's surprised Edge didn't do it himself as a cheap plug. He tells Edge it sounds like he's sucking up to all the fans.

He says he doesn't want him to put it on, he says he wants him to take it home as a reminder of what Smackdown has become - the new home of Cody Rhodes. Edge says if Rhodes' is the new face of Smackdown, than Smackdown needs the paper bag worse. He says he can't believe Dusty Rhodes has anything to do with you.

Someone in the crowd wearing a paper bag clotheslines Rhodes hard. He removes the bag to reveal a seething mad Ted DiBiase. DiBiase jumps the guardrail and commences to kickin' Rhodes' ass.
