"Yes, sir, we promised you a great main eventů"
-We kick things off with a recap of last week.
-And here comes Edge. He says he's tried, but last week, things became clear that he has to start going with his gut. He can only listen to one person, and that's him. You see, he'll give us a case in point. When he won the Rumble, he listened to the fans. And what happened. They let him down. Just like his Summerslam team is letting him down, they're falling apart before his eyes. He doesn't respect John Cena, doesn't trust Chris Jericho, has no faith in Khali, he barely knows Truth and Morrison. That's why he needs to do things his way. He agrees that Nexus needs to be taken down. He has a proposal. That's why tonight, he challenges Wade
Barrett one on one. He doesn't want anyone sticking their nose in it. And here comes R-Truth.
Edge said he didn't want anyone coming down here. Truth says he was gonna ask him the same question. Do you think challenging Barrett to a match will squash everything? Edge knows it's bigger than that, but he doesn't want to rely on anyone. Truth says he doesn't have to listen to Cena, but he has to listen to him. Edge has been in a ton of matches, but how many times has he ever had to fight for everything. Everything. You, me (Truth), they're fighting for their lifestyle, their friends, family, the WWE Universe. They have to do this together. If not, Nexus wins. It's as simple as that. You know what, you need to stop thinking about yourself, and pull your head out of your rear end. Those fighting words. That's the truth. Edge says that's clever, but Truth's version of the truth. You know how to kill a snake, you chop its head off. He's taking out Barrett tonight. Is Truth getting out of his ring, or is he going to have to Spear him out. Cole's got an email. If this is what Edge wants, then he'll honor his request. R-Truth, please exit the ring, because Edge is going to face Wade Barrett next. Truth wishes Edge luck, and says he's on his own.
Match 1: Edge vs Wade Barrett

The ref pulls him off, and Barrett starts choking him again. Pin but only two. Sleeper hold locked in by Wade. Edge fights out, and both guys take each other down with a double clothesline. Edge with right hands. Flying shoulder block follows. Edgecution countered, but Edge ducks a clothesline and hits the Edgeomatic. Pin but only two. Edge goes up to the top. Barrett cuts him off.
