Teddy Long comes out to the ring to pimp SummerSlam and introduce Kurt Angle for an in-ring interview. Eddie follows Kurt in a lowrider, wondering where (a) the wheelchair and (b) Luther are.
Eddie: Talk to my face
Kurt: Do you know how it feels to have everything taken away from you?
Eddie: Like when you screwed me out of my title in the cage match?
Kurt: You’re accusing ME of stealing? Well if that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black. Wasn’t it you who stole my memorabilia?
Eddie: That was for charity!
Kurt: What about you winning with your foot on the ropes at WrestleMania, after faking an injury? I take it as a compliment, ’cause you know deep down inside you can’t beat me, you have to cheat to beat me.
Eddie: Oh, make no mistake about it holmes, I’ll do whatever it takes to win. I lie, I cheat, I steal, odelay! Maybe you’re right, maybe I can’t beat you without cheating, esse. But what if I can? That’s the question that burns inside of both of us, esse. As a matter of fact, that’s what I believe is behind all of your hiding – hiding behind the GM position, behind the fake injury, making my life a living hell, ’cause way deep down deep down inside(pulse) you don’t know if you can beat me, who the better wrestler is.
You get the point, right?
Eddie can’t wait to find out, neither can Teddy Long, and neither can the people… and frankly, neither can I! Great promo, and VERY good selling of the PPV match, which I wasn’t convinced about (outside of inring-work of course) before tonight’s episode.
Unfortunately, Teddy challenges their menhood with a handshake proposal, and they do so, and almost kiss, then get angry at Rush’s shitty rendition of “Summertime Blues.”
