Episode Recap

Chris Jericho comes to the ring and he immediately calls the crowd hypocrites and ignorant to just how talented he is. He says to forget everything you ever knew about Smackdown because he is taking over and there is nothing anyone can do about it. Jericho complains about have to be in a match to determine the #1 contender because he already is the #1 contender but he will compete and win and go on to Judgment Day and become the new World Heavyweight Champion. This brings out Edge. Once he gets in the ring, Edge proceeds to mock Jericho as Superstar of the year and tormentor of senior citizens the world over, and he brings up the fact the Jericho has never beaten John Cena, but Edge did to become the 9 time World Champion. Edge tells Jericho that he can't take Smackdown because it is his show. Then out comes CM Punk, who indroduces himself a Mr. Money in the Bank and reminds Edge that he beat him once before by cashing in MITB and becomes World Champion. Jericho interrupts Punk and tells him to leave. Punk ignores him and starts to talk to Edge and Jericho interrupts him again and whines and the walks out. Punk starts again, and Edge stops him and says nobody wants to listen to him. Punk ignores that and tells Edge that since Vickie Guerrero is on Raw, there's no one left to protect him on Smackdown, and that the actual GM, Teddy Long, has put him in a match tonight against Punk, and Punk tells Edge that after he wins, he will cash in and beat Edge again.
