Match #1 Edge w/Lita and Chris Masters vs. Rey Mysterio and Matt Hardy

Lita talks smack on Rey and Matt. She has a surprise. Edge isn’t wrestling tonight. It does nothing for Edge to beat Matt…again. Beating Rey does nothing as well. He doesn’t care about either of them, or Raw or the people want. He cares about HIMSELF. They should be concerned about his replacement.
