Pretty dope Goldberg video to begin things. We don’t even see the Nitro intro yet!

HOUR NUMBER ONE! Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay, and Larry Zbyszko. Hold up, that’s not Larry Z. Bobby Heenan is at the broadcast booth because Zbyszko was called into a meeting by Time Warner executives. Schiavone speculates the meeting has something to do with the gag order placed on him by nWo Hollywood and Dusty Rhodes last week. Heenan had his ear to the door and suspects Tony is right.

Read along if you have the WWE Network!

We start the show with an EPIC video package highlighting the Hell in a Cell from last Sunday between Batista and the Undertaker – including the finish where Edge made his return and screwed over the Undertaker to help Batista win.

Next thing we know, we’re in Smackdown GM Vickie Guerrero’s office where she lays down the law with Edge about his actions – and then punishes him with a world title match next week. HUH? OHHHH, it seems Vickie has a thing for tall, skinny, long blonde-haired Canadians and she makes out with Edge real big. That’s a hop, skip, and a jump from the usual short, muscly-armed, mullet-wearing Mexicans she’s typically attracted to.
