"Miz you can't seem to get anything going in your favor. Miz I have a challenge for you, if you can win three matches before SummerSlam, I will reveal myself at SummerSlam, and you and I can go one on one. I hope you win Miz, because I am getting bored, and I need some ring action."
On the back of the note is the letter "i."

Barrett says that Christian has lost more than enough times and can no longer be considered a threat to the World Championship. Christian starts to talk but Barrett thinks otherwise.
"You see Christian, Teddy Long has taken the night off due to a personal problem. He has asked that someone who is experienced and wise run the show tonight. Christian, tonight William Regal is in charge!" The crowd lets out a series of boo's but Regal takes Barrett's mic and makes them all quiet down.
Regal says that tonight, Christian will take on Sheamus and Drew McIntyre. If Christian can find a partner then it will be a tag team match, if not then it will be a handicap match.

But to be honest, Booker isn't exactly a spring chicken. You should be able to beat an older superstar. I wonder if you can beat a young, up and coming superstar. Miz, I have talked with Teddy Long about your opponent next week. But don't go asking Teddy what my name is because I used my code name of Mr.Wrestling."
