We're reminded that on RAW, Edge and Christian brought out some fake Dudley parents. The Dudley Boyz came out and put the fake Ma Dudley through a table. I didn't really get that whole thing. Were we supposed to be cheering the Dudley Boyz putting a defenseless middle-aged woman through a table? Edge and Christian enter the ring wearing Oakland Raiders jerseys. Just when you think that they're going to go against type and support the hometown team, Edge takes off his jersey to reveal a Baltimore Ravens T-shirt, and they act out the Raiders getting beat by the Ravens in Sunday's playoff game. Their partner in tonight's match will be Chris Benoit. Leading off the opponents' entrance is Chris Jericho, who taunts Benoit, but his little speech is not really up to his usual excellence. Jericho does decide that when he takes on Benoit for the Intercontinental Title at the Royal Rumble, it will be in a ladder match. Jericho's partners will be the Dudley Boyz. Before the match can really begin, Stone Cold dashes down to the ring with a chair and cleans house. Well, that's one way to shorten a television show. Of course, they don't cut out Austin drinking some beers. Austin calls Vince out, and Vince appears. Long story short, Austin wants to know if he's in the Royal Rumble. Vince says that he is.
After the break, Vince stalks back to his dressing room, where Trish "The Dish" Stratus is waiting for him. Vince complains to Trish about Austin's demands, and then wonders why Trish volunteered to be in Kurt Angle's corner. Trish says that she doesn't want to displease Vince, and that she's been "so bad that she deserves a spanking." Vince likes this idea. Oh, dear God. I'm going to vomit now.
