Peter Bradshaw starts off the show by walking to the ring with a microphone. He says that he has sat back, In his office, for the past few weeks and let the situation between Randy Orton and Kurt Angle play itself out. He knew the fans enjoyed watch them go at each other in the lead-up to this Sunday’s Heavyweight Title Match at Hostile Takeover. However, in Bradshaw’s opinion, things have gotten to the point where it is inevitable that they be in the ring at the same time. He says he is not giving away what should be a fantastic match on Sunday, but says that Orton and Angle will have a match tonight. A tag team match, where Orton will team with Brutus Magnus, and Angle will team with John Cena!
