Report by Richard Trionfo & PWinsider.com

We start off this week’s show with a look at the Battle Royal from last week that saw Mark Henry become the new number one contender for Randy Orton’s World Heavyweight Title.

Since we are in Calgary, we start off with Bret Hart making his way to the ring. Josh is excited to see Bret and so is Booker, but Cole is bored at Bret’s presence in the ring.

Bret says that due to unforeseen circumstances, Teddy Long will not be able to appear tonight so Triple H appointed him the special guest general manager of Smackdown tonight. He says that there will be a live Super Smackdown with Raw and Smackdown superstars on the same show. Bret says that the best part is going to be the main event. The Number One Contender Mark Henry will face Randy Orton for the World Heavyweight Championship.

That announcement brings out one of eastern Canada’s favorite sons Christian out. Christian tells Bret that he wants to make something perfectly clear to Bret and the entire world. Christian says that it wasn’t his fault that he lost at SummerSlam. He blames one person and that is Bret’s friend Edge. Christian says that he couldn’t concentrate after the things that Edge said to him so it cost him the World Heavyweight Championship.

Christian says that everyone seems excited that Bret is the guest General Manager tonight, but Christian reminds Bret that as the former World Heavyweight Champion, he is entitled to an immediate rematch and he gets one more match. Christian says that he wants that match on Tuesday’s live Smackdown.

Bret says that he has noticed that he doesn’t listen to his friend’s advice because he thought that Edge said something very important. He told Christian to stop being a crybaby because Christian is becoming an embarrassment to his friends, his family, the WWE Universe, the World Title, and worst of all, he is becoming an embarrassment to Canada.

Bret tells Christian to do everyone and especially himself a favor and grow a set of gennies and be a man. He tells Christian to start at the bottom and work his way up like a man.

Christian asks Bret about his comments not to embarrass himself and then Christian decides to turn the tables on Bret. He says embarrassing is people like Bret and people like Edge unable to cope with the fact that when their career is over, it is really over. He points out Bret’s leather jacket and his greasy hair like he is twenty-five years old. He tells Bret to let it go. Christian says that he hopes that Edge is hearing this too. Maybe they cannot stand the fact that he is the only Canadian who is still relevant in the WWE. Christian says that he figured that Bret would have the same business acumen as Teddy Long so he brought something with him. Christian has a note for Bret to read.

Christian tells Bret that it is a court ordered legal document created by his legal team stating that no WWE Superstar will have a championship match before Christian.

Bret says that he cannot fight the law and it looks like Christian has a World Title match next week.

Christian wants Bret to confirm that he has the title match. Bret says that the big question is the type of match for the guy who has nothing but excuses. Bret announces that next week, we will have a steel cage match so there will be no more excuses for Christian.

Christian tells Bret that he can’t do this.

Mark Henry’s music plays and he comes to the ring. Mark tells Bret that he has been with this company for fifteen years and he still has to deal with this blatant disrespect. Mark reminds everyone that he earned his title opportunity last week and if he doesn’t get it, somebody’s gonna get hurt around this place.

Bret starts to say something but Mark tells Bret not to speak until he tells him something. Mark says that he wants the winner of the cage match. He says that as much as what Bret has done for this industry, he cannot be held responsible when he gets angry. He doesn’t know what he might do to Bret or anyone else.

Bret wants to know if Mark is trying to intimidate him.

Mark says that he doesn’t have to intimidate anyone.

Sheamus’ music plays and he makes his way to the ring, but on his way, he has a story for the fella. Sheamus talks about his Uncle Mick O’Connor used to own a farm. On that farm he had a mean, ugly black bull. It was so mean it would chase the other farm animals away. His uncle had enough so he had the bull castrated. Sheamus says that he doesn’t want to have to do that to Mark.

Sheamus comes into the ring and he goes after Mark and he hits him with a series of double sledges to the head and eventually Henry goes to the floor and walks away and he will wait for their match later tonight.
