John Laurinaitis starts things off by saying he doesn't agree with the board of directors' decision, and he thinks he is being put in harms way. He says he wanted to compete with John Cena in a match, and he is in good shape for his age, but the board would not overturn the match stipulations. Johnny says he wants the fans to support him, and he doesn't expect them to cheer, but he wants them to say a prayer for them tonight. CM Punk comes out and says his prayers have been answered because Johnny is all alone and he has to win by pinfall or submission. He says the best part of all of it is that Johnny gets fired, and he wants to be the first one to wish him well in his future endeavors. Punk says they are going to throw a party bigger than Mardi Gras, and it will go all week because Johnny makes so many people miserable.

Punk references Johnny firing Big Show after he humiliated him, and he says he insults the fans and makes fun of Teddy Long after he made Smackdown great. Johnny says he isn't fired yet, and he can still make any match he wants, so Punk is going to face Kane tonight. Punk says he might be a little worried, but he isn't going to run to the board of directors and whine. He says he will still be the WWE Champion next week, but Johnny will be hanging out in the unemployment line. Punk leaves and taunts Johnny on his way up the ramp, and Johnny says he bets the fans like when people make fun of their boss. He says he has been fair and he works hard for the fans, but all they do is crap all over him for his efforts. Johnny says he blames the fans for supporting guys like John Cena and CM Punk, and he says he hates all of them, so he has one thing left to say. He says this might be his last night on Smackdown, then he says they can all go to hell and leaves to a chorus of boos.
