Here is Raw. Personally, i feel that there are parts of this show which are not very strong, and some of the promos aren't that good, but i havent had a lot of time to work on this, and if i dont post it today it would probably be another few days before i could post it
WWE Raw Ė November 28th
The pyro then explodes, as Raw is on the air, live from Cleveland. We scan around the arena, as we are shown the fans in the arena who are screaming for the show to begin.
The show opens with a video package from last night, highlighting all the big events that happened, just in case for some reason you didnít buy the ppv of Survivor Series. We show clips of the opening match, where the Teachers retained the tag titles and gained Alexis Laree, the assistant the womenís belt. We see Mohammed Hassan cheat to gain the biggest win of his career over the Undertaker, when Daivari threw takerís leg off the ropes. We see the brutal and bloody battle between HHH and Flair, which ended with HHH just winning and keeping his career. We see highlights from the 12 man tag match, beginning with the rap from John Cena, and ending with Christian pinning Cena in the middle of the ring, with a touch of help from Tyson Tomko. We see Edge cash in the MITB contract against Rey Mysterio, and become the new world Heavyweight Champion. Finally, we see a video package from the main event match, with the majority of the last few minutes shown, when Bret Hart screwed over Jericho to begin with, but then changed his mind and cost HBK his chance of winning the title.
Then, *Time to play the game*
hits, and out to the ring comes Triple H, to a huge amount of heat after the beating he gave to Flair last night. Triple H strolls down to the ring, bottle of water in hand, and makes his way to the ring, ignoring the jeers of the crowd, as he gets into the ring, and grabs a mic off the announcer
Triple H: Wooooooooooooooooooooo!
Huge heat from the crowd, who start up a * Flair* chant
Triple H: You want Ric Flair do you then? Well too bad that I retired him last night
Triple H: But didnít I tell every single one of you hear tonight that that was exactly what I was going to do? Didnít I tell you that you should never bet against the game? And didnít I tell you that Survivor Series was the last time that you would see Ric Flair in a WWE ring?
Triple H: But I have to give it Flair. Last me, me and him, we put on one hell of a match up. We went back and forth for near on 30 minutes. We went to a level of brutality that I have never been to before. And Ric Flair almost, almost had enough in him to claim the victory. He almost made me say I Quit, but almost just isnít good enough.
Triple H: Look at it this way, Ric Flair, the man who is perhaps the single greatest wrestler in this history of this business, the man who I looked up to was made to say I Quit by me
Triple H: And as Ric Flair always said, to be the man, who have to beat the man. And after last night, I donít think there is any question of who the man is
Triple H: The man is Triple H
Triple H: Look what I have achieved in my career. Not only have I retired Ric Flair, I also retired the man running smackdown at the moment, Mick Foley.
Triple H: I have been in the main event at not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4 but 5 wrestlemaniaís. I have won the royal rumble, I have won the king of the ring tournament. I have been tag team champion, I have been European champion, intercontinental champion, and the 10 time WWE champion.
Triple H: I have beaten all the big names in the business. Ric Flair, Mick Foley, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Undertaker, Kane, Randy Orton, The Big Show, Booker T, Rob Van Dam, Kurt Angle, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho; every single one of them has been into the ring with the game, and every single one of them has got their ass kicked
Triple H: But I still donít seem to get any respect from the WWE fans. Everywhere I go, I get booed, I get shouted at, I get treated as if I was an outcast from society. But for all of you people, Iíve got a message for you, I just donít give a damn!
Triple H: Because I have my million dollar motor home. I have my beautiful wife. And I donít know whether you know this or not, but I have a child on the way. But there is something else that I want, I need, and I damn well deserve, and that is the WWE championship
Triple H: You see, the time has come for me to become an 11 time champion. The time has come for me to rise back to the top of the show. And I think that the time has come for the king of kings to go back on his throne
Triple H: And hereís a message to whoever the champion is, but frankly it doesnít matter to me because I will beat you whoever you are Ė keep the belt warm, beat the belt close to you, and shine it up real good, because very soon, that belt will be mine again, and I will show you just why I am that damn good!
Huge heat, as Triple H starts to leave the ring, looking very pleased with himself. He is about to exit the ring, when *Just Close Your Eyes*
hits, and out to the ring comes Christian and Tyson Tomko, to a mixed reception from the crowd, with about a 50/50 split between cheers and boos. They come down to the ring, and Christian takes a mic
Christian: Great speech Hunter, great speech. I mean, it was just so polished, so perfect, everything seemed to fit just so well with. How many times did you practise Hunter, because for it to be that good, it has to be repeated quite a few times?
A few laughs from the crowd
Christian: But there were two things that did strike me about it, something that just werenít quite right, two things about the list of names that you so expertly read out. You see, you didnít mention the name of John Cena
Christian: So it seems that you have never beaten John Cena, never pinned him in the middle of the ring, unlike me
Christian: You see, for those of you who didnít catch Survivor Series last night, you would not have seen me beat John Cena in the middle of the ring, to win the Survivor Series match up for Team Bischoff, and thus firing Paul Heyman
Triple H: Oh trust me Christian, Cenaís name will be on that list at some point in the future
Christian: And secondly, that list did not contain the name Christian
Christian: And that Triple H is something I like the sound of. I mean, you have never beaten me have you?
Christian: But if we go back to a certain Taboo Tuesday and the elimination chamber match, I can remember someone getting pinned by me in the middle of that ring. Now Tomko, I know you donít look the smartest, nor may you be the smartest, but can you remember who that was?
Tomko: You know what Christian, I think it was Triple H
Christian: Triple H hey? Now isnít that intÖ.
Triple H: That loss was only because of Ric Flair getting involved in the match, and we know full well what happened to him as a result of that donít we? I mean, unless you also want to be in hospital, suffering from a concussion, severe blood loss, and a knee so badly damaged that he might not ever be able to walk again, I suggest you do something that I donít think you have ever done before and shut up!
Triple H: You donít seem to realise something Christian, you donít seem to understand who I am. I am the game, if I want something done, then I get that thing done. If I want to beat someone, then that is exactly what will happen. If I want to add your name to that list Christian, then that is exactly what I will do.
Christian: Hunter, do you realise that less people are actually listening to you then who listen to an Ashley Simpson record
A pop from the crowd with some laughs
Christian: And let me guess, the next thing you were going to say is that if I want to WWE Title, then I will go and get it? Well to do that, youíll have to go through me
Christian: You see, tonight I will be facing Chris Jericho in the main event, with the WWE title on the line. And I will become the next WWE champion, because thatís how I roll!
hits, and out to the ring comes Edge, to a huge level of heat from the crowd. He is with Lita, and they stand up on the ramp, as Edge raises the World Heavyweight Title to the crowd, drawing boos from the crowd
Edge: Your new World Heavyweight Champion, Edge
Edge: Christian, Hunter, itís so good to see that you to are out here tonight, squabbling about who the next champion is going to be, talking about what you are going to do, when what you should be doing is acting upon your thoughts. Not waiting around, hoping that someone will give you want, because it just doesnít work like that. You see, for years, I waited around, hoping for a title chance, but everytime I got one then I was screwed out of the match. So last night, I finally decided to take matters into the own hands.
Edge: I sat and watched Rey Mysterio and Randy Orton fight their asses off, knowing full well that whatever they did would be futile. You see, I knew that after that match was the right time to cash in my contract, and to become the new World Heavyweight Champion
Edge: And tonight, tonight is the last time you will see the Rated R Superstar and Lita on Raw. Yeah, thatís right, the time has come for me to go and tear up the shows on a Friday night instead. Iím moving to Smackdown, and I will be the man that the show is all about. And you can bank on that!
hits again, to a large amount of heat as Edge and Lita leave the staged area, with Edge holding the title belt up in the air. Christian and Triple H are left in the ring, not quite knowing what to think, but staring straight at each other
We return to Raw, and we see Eric Bischoff and the Coach in the GMís office, celebrating the win from last night, as Chris Masters walks into the room
Eric: Chris, Iíve got to say, last night, you did an amazing job on my team. You were awesome, in fact, I think that you looked to be the single greatest wrester alive today when you wrestled last night. So what can I do for you?
Masters: You know Eric, I was thinking of cashing in my favour tonight. You see, I feel that the time is right now the masterpiece to have a bit of gold around his waist. And tonight, I was thinking that Chris Masters should go one on one with AJ Styles for the intercontinental title.
Eric: Chris, you know I would love to give you that match, but AJ Styles is already booked for tonight, defending his title against Mohammed Hassan. How about I make the match for next week?
Masters: Eric, I want my title shot tonight, so why donít you just replace Mohammed Hassan with me? Because if you donít, then you will feel the masterlock
Eric: Okay, okay Chris, youíve got your match tonight. And Chris, I know that you have what it takes to become the intercontinental champion
Masters: Of course I do, and tonight, the masterpiece goes gold
We return to the ring, as *Aint no stopping me now*
hits, and out to the ring comes Shelton Benjamin, to a decent amount of heat from the crowd. He comes down to the ring, and he enters it, ignoring the heat he is getting from the crowd, and awaits his opponent
Then, *Oh Yeah*
hits, and out to the ring comes Matt Hardy, to a good pop from the crowd, which reflects the strong showing he gave in the 12 man tag last night. He comes out, and he gives the v1 sign to the crowd, as he enters the ring, ready for his match
Match 1 Ė Shelton Benjamin vs. Matt Hardy
Summary Ė A great high action wrestling match here. Hardy continues off from his strong performance in the 12 man tag match last night, and in the early going is unstoppable, but Shelton manages to fight his way back into the match after a rake to the eyes. Shelton then controls the middle of the match, wearing Hardy down with a series of technical moves, as well as a few submissions thrown in for good measure. But eventually Hardy fights his way back into the match, throwing right hands, and then he gets a two count after a side effect. He goes for the leg drop, but Shelton moves out of the way, and then Shelton climbs to the ropes, and hits the springboard bulldog, but only gets a two count. He goes for the T-Bone to Matt, but as he goes to hit it, Charlie Haasís music hits, which distracts Shelton. He goes to the ramp to see him, but no-one is there, which allows Matt to nail the twist of fate to Shelton, and pin him getting the three count
Matt Hardy wins by pinfall at 13:16
Matt celebrates the win, whilst Shelton once he manages to get back up is furious at what has happened to him. He stares at the ramp, telling Charlie to come out and face him, but nothing happens. Shelton then leaves to go backstage, not happy about the fact Haas has screwed him out of the match
We go backstage, and we see Shelton Benjamin storm straight into Eric Bischoffís office
Shelton: Damn that son a bitch, damn him. I had that match won if it wasnít for Charlie Haas. I want to make him pay for what he has done to me
Eric: I think we can do that if you want to. But I canít just go around making matches because people want them to be made. I need a reason as to why I should let you go one on one with Charlie Haas again
Shelton: Why? Well firstly because I have a favour that I can cash in with you to get me anything that I want, and next week, I want Charlie Haas. And secondly, ever since Charlie Haas came to Raw in the draft earlier this year, he has done nothing but get in my business, and he has lowered me to his level. I was the intercontinental champion before he came, and now, I donít have anything, and this is all down to him. He held me back, making me team up with him, and that got me nowhere. And the son of a bitch kept costing me matches, and even after I have beaten the guy to hell and back, and still hasnít learned his lesson. Does that satisfy you?
Eric: Okay, okay, next week, on Raw, live from London, England, in the main event, it will be Shelton Benjamin vs. Charlie Haas, in a feud ending match. After this match, there will be no more matches, got that?
Shelton: I like that idea, because Charlie Haas wonít be in a state to have any more matches after next week, because it will be a STRETCHER match. And after I put Charlie Haas on a stretcher and throw him out of the arena, there wonít be no stopping me!
We go to the ring, and we see Johnny Parisi already in the ring
hits, and out comes Kurt Angle to the ring, to a decent amount of heat, and then usual Ďyou suckí chants. Angle ignores them though, as he comes down to the ring, with the pyro going off behind him, as he ready for his match
Match 2 Ė Kurt Angle vs. Johnny Parisi
Summary Ė No more than a squash match really, which allows Angle to get a win under his belt again after being pinned by Cena last night. Angle dominates the whole match, other than a brief flurry of offence by Parisi near the end. Angle destroys him with a barrage of suplexes, and then ends the match with the angle slam and then the angle lock, forcing Parisi to tap out
Kurt Angle wins by submission at 2:01
Angle then keeps the hold locked in, in an attempt to break his opponents ankle, as it appears that he has a bit of his mean streak back
hits, and out to the ring comes Mohammed Hassan, alongside Daivari, to a huge amount of heat from the crowd. The two of them stroll down to the ring, looking very confindent, and Hassan motions to put something around his waist, obviously thinking that his IC title shot is still on. He gets into the ring, and then he takes a microphone
Hassan: Finally, finally Mohammed Hassan is going to get some recognition. Because last night, Mohammed Hassan defeated the Undertaker
Hassan: I pinned The Undertaker in the middle of the ring, and I did it all by myself. Now how many wrestlers in the WWE can say that?
Hassan: And yet again, I remain undefeated in the WWE. Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho, Hulk Hogan, Chris Benoit, AJ Styles, Shelton Benjamin, Charlie Haas, and now the Undertaker. Every single on of them has faced me in the ring, and every single one of them has failed to pin me or make me submit
Heat, and then Daivari screams at the crowd in Farsi
Hassan: But now, now is the time for me to regain my intercontinental championship. So AJ Styles, get your ass out here, and prepare to be beaten by the great Mohammed Hassan!
hits, and out to the ring comes Chris Masters, with his usual entrance of posing and showing off his muscles to the ground. He slowly comes down to the ring, to a decent amount of heat, while Hassan and Daivari in the middle of the ring have no idea what is going on
then hits, to a nice pop, as the intercontinental champion AJ Styles comes out to the ring. He salutes the crowd, and slaps hands with them, before entering the ring. As he enters the ring, the referee whispers something into the ear of Hassan
Hassan: What? Oh this is just typical isnít it? It seems that I have been replaced in this match by Chris Masters. And we all know exactly why this is donít we? Because I am an Arab-American
Hassan: And I have had enough of this prejudice against me, so tonight, I am going to make a stand. Me and Daivari, we will not be leaving this ring until we are treated as equÖ.
hits, as the arena goes into darkness. The crowd pop, as they think that the Undertaker is on his way out. The lights come back on, but the Undertaker has not come out. However, Hassan and Daivari are also not in the ring, which gets a pop from the crowd, as the IC title match can now begin.
Match 3 Ė AJ Styles vs. Chris Masters Ė Intercontinental Title
Summary Ė A keenly fought contest here, as both men put in a good performance to give what could possibly be Mastersís best one on one match in the WWE so far. AJís speed around the ring gives him the early advantage, allowing hit and run attacks to be used on Masters, but after a cross body in caught and reversed into a fallaway slam, Mastersí powers takes control. He wears AJ down, using his power, focusing on trying to remove the agility that AJ has. He goes for the masterlock on a few occasions, but each time, AJ is able to avoid the move, and eventually, this pays dividend for AJ, as a masterlock attempt is reversed into a pele kick, but AJ cannot capitalize. AJ is the first to his feet, and using his high offence attacks, he takes down Masters, and almost pins him after a diving hurricanarana. He then goes for the styles clash, but Masters ducks it, and then locks the masterlock in on AJ. AJ is in trouble, as no-one has escaped the hold before, and he has to do anything he can to escape. He tries to get to the ropes, but the power of Masters stops him from doing so. AJ looks as if he is going to have to give up, but he manages to nail a low blow with his foot to Masters, causing Masters to break the hold. Masters then doubles down in pain, as AJ nails the styles clash to him, and gets a three count
AJ Styles wins by pinfall at 11:37 and retains the Intercontinental Title
AJ has his hand raised in victory to a good pop from the crowd, as he retains his title, but he realises how close he came to losing the match. He has the title, and he holds it up to crowd as he celebrates his victory. He is about to leave the ring, when Chris Masters relocks the masterlock in on AJ, as Masters looks to be bitter about losing the match. He has the hold in, but Matt Hardy comes running down to save AJ, which causes Masters to release the hold and flee the ring. Matt stares at Masters, who retreats up the ramp
We return, and we see Chris Jericho standing by with Todd Grisham
Todd: Chris, last night you defended the WWE championship against Shawn Michaels, although you did receive some help from Bret Hart. Was Bret Hart the man who you were talking to on the phone?
Chris: Yes Todd, I can confirm that Bret Hart was the man who have been having phone calls with for months, and yes, we did have a plan to screw Shawn Michaels out of his title shot. And Todd, as you well know, that is exactly what did end up happening. I mean, Shawn Michaels tapped out to the walls of Jericho, maybe with a bit of help from Hart, but hey, who cares?
Todd: Although at one stage, Bret Hart did look as if he was going to screw you?
Chris: You fell for that did you? Of course he wouldnít screw me, as simply nobody can possibly screw the ayatollah of rock and rolla. No, no, no, what you are forgetting Todd is that I am the king of the world, and basically Todd, that means that I am untouchable. But more importantly Todd, I still have the WWE title sitting around my gorgeous waist
Todd: And tonight, tonight you will defend the title against Christian, who is hot of the heels of a big win last night.
Chris: Your damn right that Christian had a big win last night, I mean, he pinned John Cena, a man who I have beaten not once, not twice, not three times, no, a man who I have beaten 4 times for the WWE title. So Todd, I wouldnít consider him to be that much of a threat to me tonight. But tonight, I am going to face of with Christian once more, and yet again, I will beat the jackass just like an American soldier beats an Iraqi. And Chris Jericho will never, ever, be doubted as champion again
We then cut back to the ring, where Rene Dupree is already standing, and we can also see that William Regal is on his way out to the ring, as he gets a small pop from the crowd. He comes down to it, and enters, ready for his match on Raw
Match 4 Ė William Regal vs. Rene Dupree
Summary Ė An average match here, which is mainly carried by Regal. With Raw going on tour in the UK for the next two Rawís, Regal is given a match on Raw to put him over a bit before the tour, as with him being from the UK, he is going to have a part to play at some point. The match is relatively formulaic, but Regal gets the win after he pins Rene with the regal slam
William Regal wins by pinfall at 2:45
Regal has his hand raised as the winner, and he waves to the crowd, who give him a nice pop after winning the match
As Regal walks up the ramp and to the backstage area, *My Time Is Now*
hits, and out comes John Cena to a huge pop from the crowd. Cena comes out, all guns blazing, and he plays up the crowd as he usually does. He comes down to the ring, and enters it
When we return, we see John Cena saluting the fans, as he has a microphone in his hand
Cena: Yo, yo, yo, Cleveland, Ohio
Cena: And Iím so glad to see that the chain gang is out in force tonight
Cena: Now firstly, I have to say that at Survivor Series, I didnít quite manage to get the job done. And I have to hand it to Christian, he did beat me fair and square in the middle of the ring. He hit me with the unprettier, and he pinned me, and believe me, I donít think the creepy little bastard will let you forget that
Cena: But what he wonít tell you is how Tyson Tomko had entered the ring beforehand, and stopped me from getting the pinfall on Christian. But Iím not one to sit and dwell on the past, and Iím certainly not one to moan and complain about how I was screwed out of match
Cena: No, what John Cena is going to do, is to get a little bit of payback, a little bit of revenge, and John Cena is going to let his aggression out on someone, right here, right now
Cena: So Christian, or Tyson Tomko, I donít care which one of you brings your ass to the ring, but come out here, so we can have a rematch from last night, to show you what would have happened if the match had gone down the way it should have
Cena: And if you want some, then come freakiní get some
Huge pop, which soon turns into a huge amount of heat, as *Iím Back*
hits, and out to the ring comes Eric Bishcoff. He strolls out to the stage, with a microphone in his hand, ready to address John Cena
Cena: Eric, Eric, Eric, come out to fight me tonight? Or do you not have the balls to do so?
Eric: Cena, I have you exactly where I want you. Last night, you had your chance to get rid of me, you had your chance to never have to suffer the wrath of Eric Bischoff again, but bluntly, you failed
Eric: You had your chance to get the job done, but you couldnít do it Cena. You didnít have the guts, or maybe, the ability to win that match
Eric: And now Cena, I am the sole king of Raw again. That means no Paul Heyman to try and check all my creative ideas. No-one interfering and getting in the way of my plans. And no way in hell that you will be able to rise to the top of Monday Night Raw again
Eric: John Cena, from now on I will make your life a living hell. I will make sure that you are going to have to suffer for what you did to me
Cena: Whoa, whoa, whoa Bisch, letís not get ahead of ourselves here. How about we rewind the clock a few months. Didnít you try to do this to me once I first came to the WWE? Didnít you try to make my life hell back then, I donít mean by making me listen to Chris Jericho sing?
Cena: And Eric, what happened then? Two things happened. One, Vince McMahon hired Paul Heyman as a co-general manager, and two, you got hit with the F-U
Eric: Your right Cena, that is what happened last time, but lightening will not strike twice in the same place. You see, in that contract for the match at Survivor Series there a little clause. A little clause which stated that the winning general manager will have sole power for at least 6 months, and cannot in any way, shape or form be replaced.
Eric: So for the next 6 months, John Cena will be Eric Bischoffís bitch!
Eric: And if you canít see that Cena, then believe me, you canít see me!
Huge heat, as Eric starts to laugh to himself, especially when we see RTC come from behind the ring, as Test and Conway attack Cena, and Bischoff tells the referee to ring the bell, as we have a handicap match right now.
Match 5 Ė John Cena vs. The Right To Censor w/Stacy Kiebler and Steven Richards
Summary Ė A normal handicap match here, with Cena getting the early advantage, but the numbers of RTC and the fact they have two people on the outside work in their favour. Test and Conway take it in turns to beat down Cena in the middle of the ring, but they cannot get a pinfall. Eventually Cena manages to work his way back into the match, and after he reverses a superplex attempt from Conway, he gains the control again. He nails him usual set of moves on Conway and on Test, and he manages to nail the F-U to Conway. He goes to cover him, but Stacy gets on the apron and distracts the referee. This allows Steven into the ring, but as he goes for the Steven kick, Cena ducks it and then nails the F-U to him. Test goes for the big boot to Cena, but Cena ducks at Test nails Conway. Test then gets hit with the F-U, and Cena covers, getting the win
John Cena wins by pinfall at 9:15
Cena celebrates the win, as Bischoff is clearly furious that his plan to destroy Cena didnít quite work out as planned. Bischoff is enraged, as Cena stares straight at him, telling him that it doesnít matter what is thrown at him, he will prevail.
Cena: Bischoff, you may have the power, but the champ is here!
Huge pop from the crowd, as we go backstage, and we see Todd Grisham you is standing by with Rob Van Dam
Todd: Rob, last night at Survivor Series you were a member of team Heyman, which ended up losing the match. With Paul Heyman being a personal friend of yours, do you have any comments on the situation?
RVD: You know what Todd, Iím not the happiest man alive at the moment. I mean, my best friend in this business is now out of a job, but worse than that is the fact that I couldnít do anything about it. I was eliminated early on in that match, because of the fact that I was illegally taken down by Christian, and frankly, that sucks. But Iím not going to lie down like some people would do and moan and bitch about that until the cows come down. No, what RVD is going to do is take his anger and frustration out on whoever gets in his way. RVD is going to show everyone exactly what he is capable of, and when RVD is in this mood, he gets whatever he wants. So whatís next for Rob Van Dam? Two things Ė firstly, I will take out my aggression on the next person who gets in my way, and secondly, itís time for Rob Van Dam to become the next WWE champion, and show everyone he is the whole damn show
RVD walks off, to a decent pop from the crowd
We return, and *Just Close Your Eyes*
hits, to a mixed reaction from the crowd, with a 50/50 split on the boos/cheers ratio. Christian comes down to the ring, with Tyson Tomko along side him, as Christian comes down to the ring, acting in a cocky manner and gesturing to the crowd that the title is about to be his
Then, *5Ö4Ö3Ö2Ö1ÖBreak the walls down*
hits, and out comes Chris Jericho, with the title around his waist to a mixed reaction from the crowd as well, in a similar vain to Christian. He comes down to the ring, in the manner he always does, acting as if he is the king of the world, before getting the ring, ready for his title defence.
Match 6 Ė Chris Jericho vs. Christian w/Tyson Tomko Ė WWE Title
Summary Ė The match never really gets going, although this is all planned out in reality. The two of them manage to get a few minutes of wrestling action in, including a couple of walls of Jericho attempts from Jericho, and a reverse ddt from Christian, before Shawn Michaels storms the ring, steel chair in hand, and blasts Jericho, Christian, Tomko, the referee, the timekeeper, and the ring announcer with the chair, as HBK appears to have lost the plot
Match declared as a no contest at 4:10
Shawn Michaels then gets a microphone, and he starts to speak in the middle of the ring
Shawn: Bet you werenít expecting to see me here tonight were you? I mean, after the way I was screwed last night, I bet you were thinking that I would go and do a Bret Hart.
Shawn: You know, never appear in the WWE again, and maybe even run off to a second rate promotion. But seeing as WCW arenít around any more, if I was going to do a Bret Hart, you would see me in TNA soon
Mixed reaction, with the crowd not knowing how to respond to the TNA reference
Shawn: But thatís not what Iím going to do. No, what Iíve got planned is a much better idea. You see, I may not have won that title last night, but trust me, I will take that title again.
Shawn: You see, the heartbreak kid thrives on the underdog story. Just like when I won the royal rumble from entry number 1. Just like when I beat Bret Hart in the ironman match to claim my first WWE title. Just like when I beat the Undertaker in the first hell in the cell match. Just like when I returned from a 4 year absence to win the first elimination chamber match. If it can be done, than the heartbreak kid Shawn Michaels will do it
Shawn: And I guess youíre all thinking, whatís Shawn going to do now? What plan does he have up his sleeve to win the title like he said he would? And when will he give Bret Hart the beating that he deserves to get?
Shawn: Well I know the answer to all of those questions, but there is not a single person in this arena that deserves to know it
Shawn: Which begs the question, why the hell am I even here? I mean, you people donít give a crap about me, and I donít give a crap about you
Shawn: And Iíve done everything that there is possibly is to do in this business. You name it, I have done it. Except for take revenge on Bret the Hitman Hart
Shawn: So right now, I have an announcement to make concerning the future of Shawn Michaels. Until Bret Hart comes back to the WWE and shows his face again, then Shawn Michaels as a WWE wrestler is no more!
hits again, as Shawn Michaels walks out of the ring, and up the ramp, to a strange reception from the crowd. Some of them are booing Shawn, because he is a heel, whilst others are cheering as he appears to be leaving the WWE. Others however appear to be in a state of shock, and simply donít know how to react. The show closes with Shawn Michaels walking up the ramp and out, seemingly of the WWE
