He then picks on the Meanie asking him about the stitches, the bruises and so on. He calls him fat and then says Meanie could not kick his ass if he was tied to a tree. Meanie challenges him and JBL calls him a fat b—h and says if he wants to come to the learning tree, this one is free. Richards says the B.W.O is on Smackdown and they wanted to show that they are taking over. They whip out some spray paint and the Meanie writes the “B.W.O” on the hood!

Eddie says he has a chance to become a tag team champion and he has a great partner in Rey Mysterio, he’s only beaten him five times in a row. Mysterio says he does not want to be Eddie’s partner so Eddie says he will just go out there himself and tell the world the secret. Rey reconsiders and Eddie says he knew he’d see things his way.
Hassan is shown in the back b—hing to GM Long. He says he was never pinned and never submitted last week so he should be the number one contender.

He then books Daivari in a match against the Taker tonight!
