We are back with Joey Styles and Tazz at ringside as we have Vince McMahon live from the WWE Studios. Vince makes fun of Joey’s name and then Tazz’s name. He then goes into introducing Bobby Lashley who is backstage. Vince is surprised that Bobby looks relaxed and it actually nice to McMahon, because he has an easy match this weekend. McMahon is also surprised that Lashley keeps coming back for more. McMahon shoots down Lashley’s claim that he is a champion. McMahon says Lashley is coming into his world, the world of the streets. Lashley laughs it off and says that this Sunday will prove why he is a champion. Vince then says he will see why he is Mr. McMahon and that it is Bobby’s last stand and if he loses, there will be no more changes. They go back and forth again, dueling each other’s arguments and McMahon asks for respect as he is old enough to be his uncle or as Lashley says, his father’s uncle. Bobby promises to hurt McMahon for all the ECW fans, though he doesn’t need to use weapons to do so, but he will anyway.
Tazz and Styles then discuss whether RVD should compete at One Night Stand and we get the video package of the RVD/Orton match from last night again. And it is still that hard to watch again with the high angle impact to the head. And Tommy Dreamer gets a chance to teach some sense to Randy Orton in the main event tonight, but now another break.
We are back with Extreme Expose coming to the ring, but not looking like they are ready to dance. I stand corrected; they are just doing it in jeans tonight to Nelly Furtado’s “Maneater”. Joy! Afterwards, they hype the draft and say it could be the end of them. Tazz hopes not, I do.
