* Triple H vs. Jeff Hardy
- The crowd is really into the match mostly behind Hardy. Good wrestling match with lots of near falls. The match ends in disqualification when Edge comes out and spears Hunter and then Hardy. SmackDown goes off the air with Hunter and Hardy both laid out in the ring and Edge walking to the back with his WWE Championship belt.
