Commercial break.

Angle to the ring. Many people have asked him why he attacked Eddie Guerrero. He did it because it was the right thing to do. He did it for us. He did it for the fans of SmackDown. He did it for America. Eddie Guerrero is a former drug addict. He tells children that it's cool to lie, cheat and steal. Well it's not cool. People in America and fans of SmackDown need to remember America was founder on morals, character and principles. We need to go back and do what's right for ourchildren and children's children. America gives us the freedom to make choices. We need to teach them to make the right ones. He questions if Eddie has a clear conscience. He wonders if Eddie will fall off the wagon again because that's what all addicts do. A drug addict is the last person we need to represent the WWE. He won't let Eddie destroy the morals of this great nation. It hurt him to attack Eddie. He prayed over it. He made a deal with the devil and Heyman and the Chavos. But it was the right thing to do. He knows he'll pay the price and face scrutiny, but he will do it to make the world a better place. He will be an American hero and someday we will thank him. He will be a champion we can be proud of.

Eddie from the crowd with a clothesline. They spill out to the runway. Heyman stops Guerrero with the police. They handcuff him slowly lead him past Angle and Heyman. In back, Angle keeps running him down, agitating Eddie. Angle slams the police car door on him, shouting at him through the glass.
