The correct answer to this was there was no temperature because there was no "BEFORE the big bang". The big bang wasn't just the creation of all matter in the universe, it was also the creation of space-time itself. This is a difficult concept for people new to cosmology and relativistic space-time, but the book "A Brief History of Time" by Stephen Hawking gives a relatively (no pun intended) clear explanation of this.
