Smackdown kicks off with Vickie Guerrero addressing the WWE Universe. She begins by stating that Big Show’s house is already up for sale; hours after his actions this past week, and that he should have been fired a long time ago. 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. Damien continues by stating that Del Rio is begging for the match to be cancelled against John Cena, because he knows he’ll lose. Vickie takes the opportunity and makes a match up for tonight; Alberto Del Rio vs. Damien Sandow. Not happy that his advancements on Vickie have not swayed her decision, Alberto Del Rio takes out his anger by assaulting Damien Sandow with the mic. Sandow fights back, but Del Rio retreats.
