Recap of the Iron Man Match.
Intro .1/2 way through, HHH stops the intro and gets in the ring. He says that last week he was supposed to become the 9 time World Heavyweight Champion, but it was all taken away by a moron someone who doesn’t even comprehend what will happen now. He then calls Eugene down to the ring, telling him that he is not leaving the ring until he pays the price for what he did. HHH starts flipping out, and screaming for Eugene. William Regal comes out and tells us all that Eugene is not in the building. He then informs HHH that he was the one that let Eugene in the building. Regal informs us all that HHH was his student back in WCW, 11 years ago, and that is because they are both naughty, and people like that tend to gravitate towards each other, but Regal informs him that by taking advantage of Eugene, he has made the mistake of making Regal his enemy. Regal then says that if HHH wants a fight, he will go back, change to his gear, and go at HHH with all the “Violent VenomÃ¢â‚¬Â he has in his body!
Diva’s dancing I really don’t like the red head, she seems annoying.
Coach comes back, and Camelle is eliminated. If I call her the blonde one, would you guys know who I’m talking about? Coach then says that tonight the girls are campaigning for our votes.
La Resistance vs. Rhyno & Tajiri
Non-Title Match. Rhyno is on fire to start, and Tajiri joins the fun. R&T double team Greiner, sends him off the ropes, Greiner takes out Rhyno, but not Tajiri. Conway gets in the mix, but Rhyno drill him with a GORE GORE GORE, and Tajiri with a sunset flip for the quick pin. Very short match.

Recap of Jericho eliminating Edge last week.
Chris Jericho’s Highlight Reel
Jericho introduces Edge, who asked to be on the Reel tonight. Jericho said that the IC title Match at SummerSlam will be Edge vs. Batista vs. Y2J. Edge says he wasn’t happy with Jericho eliminating him last week. Jericho says that if Edge had the chance, he would do the same thing. Edge agrees, but he had to watch as Orton eliminated Jericho, and he then says that Jericho hasn’t been dumped that badly since Trish Status. Ouch. Jericho says that he knows Edge enough to know that he will win the IC Title from him at SummerSlam. They then stare down. Edge goes to walk away, and Jericho grabs him, only to get drilled. They then go toe to toe, and Edge gets a massive spear in. Edge goes out and gets a chair, but eventually comes to his senses and puts it down. He then helps Jericho up, and Jericho gives him a stiff right. Lets not forget that they are teammates tonight.
