|As 'Smackdown' began, who was the first person we saw?|
Vince McMahon. Vince said that Flair and mistakenly authorized a WWF Undisputed Heavyweight Championship Match between Triple H and The Undertaker.

|Who walked to the ring to make an announcement?|
Kurt Angle. Kurt walked to the ring and said he could state all night why he should face Triple H at 'Backlash'. Angle said that since the people continued to disrespect him, he would state all the reasons why he should have the match. Angle then said that since he had defeated Triple H more times than he could count, that he owned Hunter. Kurt then said that he was adored by children and senior citizens and that he was a role model.
|In reference to the above question, who came to the ring and interrupted?|
Chris Jericho. As Angle was talking, Jericho came to the ring and a pompous idiot, and said that there was no way in hell that Angle deserved the title shot. Jericho then said that he never received his rematch with Triple H, and therefore he was the one who should face him at 'Backlash'. As he was saying this, the audience was calling him a 'has been', but Jericho said that he wasn't a 'has been'.
|In reference to the above two questions, who came to the top of the ramp and interrupted?|
The Rock. As Angle and Jericho were arguing amongst themselves, The Rock came to the top of the ramp and said that neither one of them deserved a title shot.

Edge. As Angle was sitting backstage, feeling sorry for himself, Edge approached and said that it was a shame that their friendship had fallen by the wayside. Edge said he had some pictures he wanted to show Angle. As Angle was looking at the pictures, the back of the them read 'I'm a dork', 'It's true', and 'I have no testicals'. After Edge left, Angle saw what was written on the back and became enraged.
|Who came to the ring to a huge ovation?|

|In reference to the above question, who also came to the ring?|
Hulk Hogan. As Triple H was talking, Hogan came to the ring dressed in yellow and red.
