WWE Champion Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods made their way to the ring. Kingston came out throwing pancakes. Kingston noted that life is full of surprises. He thought that after eleven years, he had seen and done it all. The fans broke into a “Kofi” chant. He talked about winning the WWE title at WrestleMania. That was an amazing moment for him, but more importantly, he wants to inspire people.

They aired a video of Kingston returning to Ghana. He got a hero’s welcome and got treated like a huge deal. This was a good video. Kingston was emotional when talking about returning to Ghana. He said it’s all about the look in those kid’s eyes. It’s a great feeling to tell a child like him that they can make it too. He was emotional when talking about seeing family again.

Dolph Ziggler interrupted and said this isn’t about Kingston. He said this is about why he’s the way he is. This is about Ziggler. They aired a video looking back on Ziggler’s career. Ziggler gave everything to the fans and his soul to WWE. Instead, It’s Kingston that’s the WWE Champion. He said he’s the hero of this story and it should be him.

Goldberg pointed out that Undertaker didn’t want the family man Goldberg. He wants the ass kicker Goldberg that went 173-0. Undertaker’s right. He doesn’t want the family man near Undertaker either, so he left his ass at home. The fans broke into another massive “Goldberg” chant.

Goldberg promised that Friday night Undertaker would get the ass-kicking Goldberg that he wants. Goldberg told the Undertaker "You're Next To Rest In Peace."

Undertaker’s gong hit and the lights went off. When they came back on, Undertaker was standing behind Goldberg, and they went face-to-face. The fans erupted for this and went crazy. The lights went off again and came back on. Undertaker was gone, and Goldberg stood alone in the ring.
