Del Rio’s music hits and interrupts Vickie from continuing her segment. Del Rio walks to the ring appearing intense and concerned. He demands, actually more like pleads that the World Heavyweight Championship match at Hell in the Cell against John Cena; be cancelled. Vickie refuses his request. Del Rio obviously showing annoyance by this seems annoyed. Vickie asks that if Del Rio was sincere about his comments to her on raw he would kiss Vickie on the lips. After a quick tap from Del Rio to her lips, he eventually lip locks her in his arms. She acts as if she liked it, but Vickie would prefer him to kiss her ass instead! Damien Sandow interrupts the love connection between Vickie and Del Rio. Sandow tries to explain to Vickie that Del Rio is manipulating her.
