Opening Recap Video
Last week, Eddy Guerrero exposed his big secret to Dominic, as he lied about keeping his mouth shut after losing to Rey Mysterio at the Great American Bash. Eddy declared that he, not Rey, is in fact Dominic’s father; this caused the young boy to run away through the crowd with his formerly believed-to-be father Rey Mysterio chasing him. Eddy promised that this week, he will reveal chapter 2.
The Peep Show
Rey Mysterio is here to begin the show, and he enters the ring to be the guest on the first edition of ‘The Peep Show’. Rey says that Christian promised him Eddy Guerrero, and Rey wants him now. Christian delivers, introducing Eddy to read chapter 2 of the bedtime story. Eddy doesn’t come out to the ring, however, as he appears on the video screen wearing a new shirt, with ‘I’m Your Papi!’ written on it. He’s ready to read chapter 2, but Rey interrupts him. Eddy decides not to finish his story at the moment, and he promises that by the end of the show, he will finish chapter 2. He has a feeling that Rey’s really gonna like it, and as he finishes his sentence, Christian attacks Rey from behind with the microphone and lays him out with the Unprettier.
After the Break
Tonight, Batista and JBL will sign their contracts for the main event at SummerSlam, and up next Booker T and Chris Benoit will take on MNM in tag team action.
Distracted by Eddy Guerrero, Rey Mysterio is blindsided by Christian and left laying in the middle of the ring.
Jillian Hall is here to give us an idea what it is like to be her. The blemish on her face has blemished her soul, but she carries herself with dignity, unlike the people. She’s not ashamed if it, and gives the camera a close-up view of it and all its fakeness. She wants people to look her in the eyes, not her cheek. Her name is Jillian Hall, and she is a fixer, and she’s here to work for MNM. She passes Booker T and Sharmell on the way to the entrance, and Booker T asks Sharmell to ‘Tell me I didn’t see that’.

JBL is pissed, but Batista tell him that if he tries anything that he’ll be pulling that horn out of his ass. JBL guaranteed that he would beat Batista at the Great American Bash and he was correct, and he tells Batista that at SummerSlam, he will bow at the feet of the Wrestling GOD.

WWE Rewind, presented by Subway
Earlier tonight, Eddy Guerrero promised he would finish chapter 2 and Christian gave Rey Mysterio the Unprettier.
Randy Orton was supposed to defeat the Undertaker at WrestleMania 21, but fate disallowed that, however Orton repaid the favor last week on SmackDown!, and now Orton is able to get what he needs, and what he needs is to beat the Undertaker. The Undertaker is a legend, but Orton, as he always claims, is the legend killer. The Undertaker’s victims were great, but Randy’s victims have all been legends. At WrestleMania, the Undertaker took away his immortality, so Orton started to take things away from the Dead Man, as last week he took away the Undertaker’s title shot. Orton’s legacy will live on long before he’s gone. He won the World Heavyweight Championship and became the youngest World Champion in history, and at SummerSlam this year he will make history one more time by defeating the Undertaker, and he demands an answer right now for his challenge. Here’s the gong, and the lights go out. RKO reads on the video screen and the Undertaker accepts the challenge as the ‘RKO’ becomes ‘RIP’.
The Boogeyman is coming.
Eddy Guerrero is in the parking lot and he greets a woman who is here in a limo. He says that there could be no chapter 2 without her presence.

Irish whip and Rey baseball slides between Captain Charisma’s legs and gets a spinning leg lariat. Christian gets a punch to the gut and dumps Rey, but Mysterio springboards back in with the seated senton for 2. Eddy and the woman from the limo wander out and get Rey’s attention.
During the break Mysterio missed the 619 and Christian got a flapjack to take control. Back to live action as Christian gets a gutbuster on Mysterio for 2. Christian locks in the abdominal stretch and pounds on Rey’s stomach.

Rey rights back but takes a shoulder to the ribs and Christian follows up with three falling headbutts on Rey for another near fall. Reverse bearhug for Christian, and Rey battles up to his feet.

Rey Mysterio def. Christian via Pinfall – 19:01
Rey wants Eddy to come down to the ring for a fight, but Eddy has manners, so he won’t. He then introduces the woman as ‘Anna’. She’s here to help Eddy finish telling chapter 2 of the story, and Guerrero sends her to the ring to give Rey the book. Eddy gives Rey the opportunity to read chapter 2, but if he doesn’t, Eddy will read it. Rey opens the book and finds a blue piece of paper and looks stunned. Eddy reveals them to be official custody papers; next week Rey must give up Dominic, since Eddy is the boy’s real father. Eddy tells Rey that if he can convince him that Rey loves Dominic enough, he might let Rey keep him. Rey says that Dominic is Rey’s real son, as he and his wife raised him for the past 8 years. Rey taught him to ride his first bike, when he broke his arm, Rey took him to the hospital and saw him cry. Rey and his wife Angie raised Dominic, and he loves his son. This seems to bring Eddy to tears, but he’s only bluffing. Eddy says that Anna is a mother, but not Dominic’s mother – she’s Eddy’s attorney, and she is here just in case Rey tries to pull any tricks like what he just said in the ring. Eddy says that she nor no court would ever declare Rey to be a man fit to be a father, because he lied to his son for so long; Eddy has 3 girls, and he tells them the truth every day, because far be it for Eddy to ever lie. Next week is chapter 3, when Dominic comes home to his papi.
Show Close, Fade Out
Rey Mysterio is left in the ring on one knee looking at the custody papers with a dismayed look on his face.
