We go to an interview with Brock Lesnar. He talks about being impressed by Bill giving the Jackhammer to the 500 pound Big Show last week but tonight he says that will be nothing compared to what he will do to Rikishi.

We then cut to the ring where it is being prepared for the contract signing up next.
We come back with Bret introducing Vince. He comes to the ring and tells Austin to get out here right now. Austin enters. They have a brief showdown before signing the contract. Both sign. Vince then takes the microphone. He says Austin has just signed his own death warrant, because at Judgment Day he is facing odds that not even Superman could tackle. Austin says he isn’t Superman, he is just a whoop-ass machine, and if he is goin down at Judgment Day he taking Bret, anybody on the outside and most definitely McMahon with him. McMahon laughs. Austin looks puzzled. Vince then points to the entrance. Austin turns around and sees that a handful of Lumberjacks (Big Show, A-Train, La Resistance, Tajiri, Akio, Sakoda and the Bashams) are walking toward the ring. Austin sees that they are getting ready to get in, so he hits Vince and Bret. He fights off the Lumberjacks until Vince nails him with a chair. He covers Austin and Bret makes the quick three count.

[B]***Next Week on SmackDown***[/ B] Judgment Day will only be three days away. What new developments will take place?
After their humiliation on Steve Austin last week, do McMahon and Hart have another other tricks planned before Judgment Day? Or will Stone Cold have the last laugh going into the biggest match of his career at Judgment Day?
T.W.G.T.T once again dodged the A.P.A on Smackdown. Will they do so again this week.
Kanyon is set to defend the U.S Title a Judgment Day but he faces the biggest man in the WWE. Will he recover from his injuries in time to face Big Show.
Plus we went off the air on Smackdown with Cena, Benoit and Eddy standing tall. Will this be the case on Smackdown? Or do their Judgment Day opponents have other ideas.
Finally, Goldberg and Brock have both looked unstoppable in recent weeks. They are set to clash for the title at Judgment Day, but who will have the advantage going into the event?
