Dolph takes the mic and he says that there is one very special person that he has to thank because without this person he would not be the Universe’s Intercontinental Champion. Without this person’s support, advice, and back rubs; he would not be the total package that everyone sees before them tonight. Dolph says this person is the official consultant to Smackdown . . . Vickie Guerrero.
Vickie tells Dolph that she deserves it. She tells Dolph that she can’t wait to get out of this disgusting city and board their private plane and celebrate in Tahiti. The fans do not appreciate Vickie and Dolph’s travel plans so she gives us another ‘excuse me’. Vickie says that she will make this so romantic that Dolph won’t have to lift a finger.
The good times are interrupted by the former Intercontinental Champion, Kofi Kingston, who takes Ziggler down and punches him. Vickie leaves the ring and Kofi with a forearm to Ziggler and Dolph goes to the floor. Kofi with a suicide dive onto Dolph while Vickie calls for referees to come down to separate the two men.

After the match, Kane gets on the mic and he says that Rey Mysterio attacked and incapacitated his brother. He says that the guilt is flowing through his veins like a disease. Desperation becomes the only recourse and it is obvious that desperation was the motivation behind his actions. On Sunday, Rey will pay for those actions. His lies will be no match for the hellfire of the dark side. His lies will not protect him from his fate. His lies will not shield him from the eternal darkness that awaits him in the casket. Kane says that his brother found it within himself to reach out from the darkness so he could speak the two words ‘Rey Mysterio’. Even in his blackest of moments, Kane says that he cannot understand the pain that his brother is enduring or the pain of knowing that he will never be the phenom that he once was. If Undertaker was here, he would punish the guilty his way. Kane tells Rey that on Sunday, vengeance will be delivered by the devil’s favorite demon.
Rey Mysterio comes out to interrupt Kane’s pyro. He says that Kane comes out speaking about evil and lies claiming to be the devil’s favorite demon. He tells Kane that he is looking at one of God’s humble servants. If there is one person who had a motive to take out the Undertaker, it wasn’t him, it was Kane. Who found the Undertaker? Who wrongfully accused everyone of doing it? Who has been living in the shadow of their brother since he was born? Who had the most to gain? Rey says that it was Kane. He says that the title that Kane is holding, if Undertaker was here right now, it would be in his hands. Rey says that on Sunday that title belt will be in his hands because Kane will be one move away from the 6-1-9.
