Friday Night – November 14th, 2008 – United Kingdom
[The show opens with footage of last weeks tag team main event]
The Undertaker’s gong is heard as the show opens. There is a casket in the center of the ring and the blue lights are on. Undertaker’s voice can be heard. He says that some men are born into the darkness in all its fury. They are the true bringers of punishment. Then he says some foolishly come looking for the darkness, blind to its fury. He says he is the punisher full of darkness and Big Show has found him. He says this is his final resting place. He adds that Show will feel his pulse quickening and will have no sight, and there Taker will punish him for all his sins. He says that he will be beaten by his own hand, and once he is buried 6 feet under, Taker will drag his soul down to the depths of hell. After he says this, the casket opens to reveal Undertaker inside.
Jeff Hardy appears on the screen, but we can’t see his face at first. When he looks up, he is wearing come kooky glow in the dark face paint. He says he should be concerned about tonight and should be concerned about him, Jeff Hardy. He says he’s sorry for interrupting him and for what? Being himself and being human? He says he’s tired of being sorry. He says Taker may see the world as light and dark, but Hardy sees the world in shades of gray. He says that this is what allows him to do what others can’t. He says that he has lived his whole life on the edge and this has built up rage and frustration over the years. He says that all that rage will be unleashed on Undertaker tonight and he will be taken to the Extreme.
Taker raises a microphone. He responds “So it will be Jeff Hardy. Tonight, you will Rest… in…Peace”. His eyes roll back with this last word.

She says that at Survivor Series, the WWE Championship will be defended when Vladimir Kozlov will challenge Triple H. She says that she has invited both these men into her ring tonight, on the condition that there will be no physicality between them during the contract signing.
- Commercial Break #4 -
Vickie has to say Excuse Me again when we return. She welcomes us to the official contract signing for the WWE Title match at Survivor Series. She makes note that if Jeff Hardy does what he promised tonight, and takes out The Undertaker, he may be added to the title match. However, for now the match is between two of the top stars and is a match so colossal that is deserves to be on her show, SmackDown. She introduces Kozlov to massive heat. She then introduces Triple H who gets a ridiculously massive pop.
Triple H picks up his mic and says that he just wants to say that being in this ring right now is kind of special. He says it is kind of like the United Nations right now. He says that they have a Russian representative (Kozlov), a Mexican representative (Chavo), and a representative from Fattslvania (indicated Vickie). He then says he was just joking and that she is really from Bulge-garia. He then says he’s joking and she is from Chunkyslovakia. Vickie interrupts him and asks if they can get back to business and Triple H apologizes and tells her she can start.
Kozlov speaks on Russian for a moment and Triple H asks if anyone picked that up, then says that no one understood him. Kozlov tells him to shut up, but Triple H tells Kozlov to shut up and listen. He says that he knows the real story and that Kozlov can give him those mean Russian eyes all he wants.. See, he has been champion before and has main evented a PPV with the title on the line before. On the other hand, this is Kozlov’s first go round. He says that he knows the nerves are building up right now…..
Suddenly, Jeff Hardy is on the top rope, leaps off, and slams Kozlov face first through the table. Triple H backs off as Hardy grabs the contract, tears it up, and throws it his face. Hardy is still wearing the kooky face paint that makes him look like some kind of ghost thing. Hardy leaves as Triple H watches him from the ring and JR and Tazz promote his match.

Both men get up, throw some rights, get in the ring, and taker scores a near fall. Taker goes for Old School but hardy counters and takes him down. Hardy then climbs under the ring and opposite out the other side with a ladder. He climbs in the ring but taker kicks the ladder in his face. He then slams it into him in the corner.

He flips over the top and to the floor as Hardy slides under the ropes and back into the ring. He nails Taker with the ladder and then sets it up in the corner. He launches himself from the top rope, over the ladder as a springboard, and hits a huge legdrop on The Undertaker to pick up the win.
Hardy gets while the getting is good, as Taker sits up a few moments later. He heads out back and we see him stagger through a doorway. We hear slow clapping and Vickie Guerrero is seen clapping from her chair with Chavo behind her. She says it was an impressive victory, but she never offered him the same deal as she did to Vladimir. She says that therefore, next week Jeff Hardy will take on Triple H in a non-title match, and if he wins then she will make the Survivor Series main event a Triple Threat match. Hardy says that’s fine and he will beat Triple H. He then warns that if he does and she doesn’t put him in the match, then he might just go Extreme on her.
