We are live on tape from San Diego, California and your announcers are Booker T, Josh Mathews, and Michael Cole.
We begin with Rey Mysterio, who makes his way to the ring in his home town.

That brings out Dolph Ziggler, Vickie Guerrero, and their love child known as the Money in the Bank briefcase. Dolph says that if the next World Champion is going to ruin Rey’s career, it will be due to him. Dolph tells Rey it is his lucky day because he isn’t out here for Rey. He is out here for Alberto.
Dolph mentions that he defeated seven other people to win the briefcase and earn the title match. He was going to cash it in on Sunday but due to Alberto, he is not the champion.
Alberto says that he does not work for Dolph and he will not do the dirty job for Dolph to help him out. Alberto says that Dolph could be working for him along with his burra.
Rey wants to bring the discussion back and he tells Dolph and Alberto if the ladies want to settle things, they should shut up and take care of each other.
Dolph agrees with Rey but he says that they shouldn’t deal with each other.
Before Alberto or Dolph can do anything to Rey, Sheamus’ music plays and they forget that he has to walk to the ring so they stop their attempt to attack Rey.
Sheamus tells Rey that it is so good to see him, fella. Sheamus tells Dolph if he makes another step, he will send him into the Pacific Ocean. Sheamus suggests they do something right now.
Dolph is ready for a fight, but Alberto leaves the ring. Sheamus with a running double sledge and Dolph falls into the ropes. Since Rey did not send him into the ropes, Dolph is not stuck in the ropes. Dolph is able to avoid the 619 and he goes to the floor and leaves.
