We are live from Baltimore, Maryland and your announcers are Michael ‘Why do people want to keep giving me crabs’ Cole, Jerry ‘King of Old Bay Seasoning’ Lawler, and Booker ‘Air Raid Alert System’ T

CM Punk makes his way into the arena and he has something to say to the people, who are going to be so important on tonight’s show.

Punk sits down in the center of the ring and he says ‘power to the people’ and he says that he would not trust any of them with the content of this television program. What terrible decisions could they make because they live in Baltimore. Punk says that no one can do anything tonight that will guide Punk’s career. He says that he is the best wrestler in the world. He says that he soundly defeated Rey Mysterio at Capitol Punishment. He soundly defeated John Cena last Monday night on Raw. Punk says that wins and losses do matter. Punk says that he is now the Number One Contender for the WWE Championship. He says that this is not a debate or an argument. It is a fact based on his accomplishments over the last two weeks.

Punk wants the anonymous Raw General Manager to send Michael Cole an e-mail to make him officially the Number One Contender to face John Cena at Money in the Bank in his home town of Chicago.

Punk tells the Gender unidentified General Manager that he is not going to leave the ring until he is declared the Number One Contender.

The Ding Dong sounds and so does the computer. Punk mirrors Cole’s announcement and he wants the announcement that he is the number one contender made. Cole quotes that he understands Punk’s demands and he will take them under consideration. He asks Punk to leave the ring.

Punk tells Cole that he loves him and knows that Cole is doing his or her job and they are asking Punk to leave the ring.

The computer tells Cole to tell Punk that he leave the ring now.

Punk says that he is not going to leave the ring until he is made number one contender, but he is going to do snow angels.

The general manager says that he was going to name Punk the number one contender later, but now Punk will have to face Alberto Del Rio.

Punk says that Del Rio has a fluke victory over the Big Show.

The match is now a Triple Threat Match. CM Punk will now face Alberto Del Rio and Rey Mysterio. This causes the first of what will be many Booker T warning alarms tonight.

We are back and we see fans texting in the crowd. Hope they don’t spoil anything.

We take a look at what happened on Friday night between Big Show and Mark Henry. Then we go to last night when Mark Henry gave Big Show the World’s Strongest Slam through the announce table.

We are back and it is time to see the sights of Baltimore.

It is time for an ‘R Truth is Crazy’ video package. I think it was produced by Little Jimmy.

R Truth makes his way to the ring and he has something to say to the Jimmys and Jennys. Truth says that he can see that the people of Baltimore have no home training so he will let them continue to act like the animals they are. Truth wants to know if they are happy that they are in charge.

Truth says that he made a call to himself in his head. He says that he did not think this out clearly last night. He asked himself and he wanted to know who would get him. Would it be the computer? Would it be John Cena? Truth says that he got okey-doked by Little Jimmy. He says that he got got by Little Jimmy. Truth says that he knew it was a Jimmy Conspiracy.

Christian comes out after interrupting the Jimmy Conspiracy. He tells Truth that he feels where he is coming from. Power to the people? Power to the People is a complete joke. He has been in this business for seventeen long years and then he finally became the World Champion. Only to have it stolen from him five days later when he wasn’t 100 percent because the people decided that he should face Randy Orton. Christian says that he has had his opportunities but he has had his setbacks. Christian says that it isn’t his fault. Christian blames horrible audiences just like the one in Baltimore. He blames a horrible general manager as well as a horrible referee. Christian wants Truth to look at the footage from Capitol Punishment and we see that Christian’s foot was under the bottom rope so the three count never should have happened.

Miz makes his way to the ring and he has a series of reallys for the men in the ring. Miz calls them whiners and crybabies. Christian wants to complain about a referee problem and Truth wants to complain about a Little Jimmy. Miz says that a referee should not be involved in a match. Riley had a match handed to him on a silver platter.

Christian says that things are different in Miz’s match. Christian points out that Truth and him were in title matches while Miz was facing his apprentice.

We get a How Dare You Off in the ring. Then it escalates to Reallys. Then it gets to Randy, Riley, and Jimmy. Duck Season. Rabbit Season.

The Smackdown invasion is almost complete because Teddy Long is making his way into the arena. Teddy says that people don’t want to see them blabbering in the ring. The fans want to see them in action. Teddy says that in the main event, the three of them will be in a six man tag match and the people will choose the type of match.
