Commissioner Chris O'Neal comes out to the crowd of around 100. He says that he's finally worked out all of the details of Super Summer Showdown 2009. This year, it will be held on September 12th at Ripley Park, and as stated last week, the show will be free. He says that in his hand, he has a contract stating that Derrick King is now officially an EWE superstar. O'Neal then makes a match for next week. It will be a one time return of Hot Topic with Stan Lee and Derrick King facing Dustin "Five" Starr and Bishop. Bishop then makes his way down to the ring and grabs the mic. He says that he'll give O'Neal two reasons why that match won't happen. First, because he doesn't want to. Second, he was screwed last week in his match against Stan Lee. He says that his shoulders were not pinned to the mat, and showed a video that supposedly proved his point. Commissioner O'Neal watches the video and says that indeed, he wasn't pinned to the mat, but Derrick King's decision as guest referee will stand. O'Neal then says that he also has footage of last week that he would like Bishop to see. The video plays, and it shows when Bishop comes up behind The Albino Rhino during his match with Dustin Starr and hits Rhino in the back of the head with Starr's EWE Heavyweight Championship belt. He says that he's had a few words with Rhino, and he's not too happy with Bishop.
