Teddy Long introduces John Cena and Brock Lesnar for the contract signing, and Cena comes out first but John Laurinaitis comes out instead of Brock. He says he told Teddy that Brock wasn't here, and Teddy says John told him to come out there, but John says they will do it on Brock's terms. John says Cena shouldn't be in such a hurry to sign the contract because it may be his last night there, then he forces Teddy to remove Cena from the ring. John starts talking about People Power, but Edge interrupts him and heads down to the ring while Cena claps for him. Edge says he isn't supposed to be under contract in a few days, but he needed to come talk to Cena.

Edge says he could have done it in private, but doing it in the ring may be more effective since he came to see the real John Cena. He says he wants to see the Cena who threw him off a ladder into two tables, and they guy who threw him into the Long Island Sound. Edge says he can't lose and he needs to find the real Cena, because they love wrestling more than anything else. He says they wanted to do this since they were kids, but Brock Lesnar just wants to put money in his pocket. Edge tells Cena that he needs to wake up because it's a slap in the face to guys like the Undertaker, Shawn Michaels and himself, then he screams at him to wake up. Edge says he isn't asking him, but he is telling Cena to beat Brock, then he drops the mic and leaves Cena standing in the ring.

Chris Jericho vs Kofi Kingston

Kofi whips Jericho across the ring and punches him in the corner, then he monkey flips him and drops him with an armdrag and a dropkick, Kofi sends Jericho to the floor and attempts a suicide dive, but Jericho rolls out of the way so Kofi grabs the ropes and stays in the ring. He applies a side headlock but Jericho rakes his eyes while the ref checks on them, then Jericho knocks him down with a kick and chops him in the corner. Jericho whips him across the ring but Kofi moves so Jericho goes headfirst into the ringpost, then he falls outside and Kofi connects with a somersault dive as we go to a break. (Cont'd…)
