Vickie and Chavo entered their dressing room, and Edge was sitting on the couch. He noted how two months apart and look at them. Edge ordered Chavo out, saying he needed to work on strategy for his title match with his wife Vickie. Vickie said Edge wasn't there for him, so she wasn't going to send any Raw stars out to help Edge tonight. Edge said Vickie would be nothing without him, and the two argued. Edge said Vickie needed to get a good divorce lawyer, because after he finishes off Jeff Hardy, he is ending their "sham" of a marriage. Edge stomped off, and Vickie, covered in mud, slumped on the couch upset.
