Triple H couldn't trust his enemies. Now he could hardly trust his allies as Survivor Series was less than a week away. Triple H got some disconcerting news from Edge and Gene Snitsky Monday night. While both Superstars would be on The Game's side come their old school Elimination Tag Team Match at Survivor Series, neither Edge nor Snitsky lacked in ambition. Both men informed Triple H that should their team defeat Randy Orton's team in Cleveland, they had very specific plans for when they get their chance to run RAW. Snitsky and Edge made their intentions quite clear, a shot at Triple H's World Heavyweight Championship.
Tajiri for one definitely felt Snitsky's wrath. Before Tajiri could even start his match with Triple H, Snitsky beat him down outside the ring before telling Triple H how he felt about Survivor Series. Edge would face Benoit in the main event. Benoit was in control before Triple H interfered. Snistsky would come down and clear house as well.
Meanwhile, Christian's plan to see Intercontinental Champion Shelton Benjamin roughed up by Tyson Tomko before their showdown at Survivor Series backfired. Benjamin not only defeated Tomko, he caught Christian with a kick to the face during the match for good measure.
The dastardly Gene Snitsky continued to terrorize Lita. After Lita and Trish Stratus exchanged words on Chris Jericho's Highlight Reel, Snitsky came out with a baby doll, eventually punting the doll into the crowd, mocking Lita throughout. He then punished Y2J after the host came to Lita's defense.
Meanwhile, Randy Orton defeated Batista in a marathon match to open the show.
