Episode Summary

Green Bay, Wisc. (taped 1/28/03)

- Just one week after Hulk Hogan made his jaw-dropping return to SmackDown!, Mr. McMahon unveiled his own huge surprise. The WWE Chairman declared that he would not be facing Hogan at No Way Out, but The Rock will!

- Although he was not in Green Bay, Wisc., The Rock appeared live on SmackDown! via satellite. The Great One stated that the showdown at No Way Out will be one to remember, saying that in one corner will stand the greatest Superstar to ever enter the ring, and in the other: Hulk Hogan!

- Team Angle earned the opportunity to take home more WWE gold next week. Kurt Angle's understudies Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin became the No. 1 contenders to WWE Tag Team Champions Los Guerreros by defeating Edge and Chris Benoit. Of Course, Benjamin was able to get the pinfall on Benoit after Angle knocked the Crippler out cold with a shot from the WWE Championship!

- The Undertaker demanded to face the Big Show on SmackDown!, but Paul Heyman's craftiness got in the way. Heyman said the Big Show had a message to deliver to the Dead Man, and he sent it by singing telegram! Heyman recruited Brian Kendrick, a Shawn Michaels trainee who will do anything to make his way into WWE, to cajole the Undertaker in the ring. But all Kendrick got was a Last Ride for his trouble!

- One half of the Tag Team Champions saw action on SmackDown! as Eddie Guerrero defeated John Cena. Shannon Moore's woes continued with a loss to Cruiserweight Champion Billy Kidman. After the match, Matt Hardy lashed out at the champ by hitting him with two Twists of Fate!

- Match Results:

* A-Train defeated Rey Mysterio
* Eddie Guerrero defeated John Cena
* Billy Kidman defeated Shannon Moore
* Bill DeMott defeated Rikishi
* Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin defeated Edge and Chris Benoit
