*HBK's music hits and Michaels and Triple H makes their way out to the arena, to a mix reaction*
Michaels: Last week, right here in this very ring, the Heartbreak Kid, defeated the people's champ, The Rock! And another thing, I did it right in his backyard. You see, the thing about me and Hunter is that we know more about each other than anyone else. We though, didn't leave when the going got tough. Unlike the Rock we stayed and fought, for you the fans! And tonight me and Triple H will prove to everyone that we are something not to be messed with!

Rock: It doesn't matter what you think, b1tch! You see The Rock is ready to lay the smackdown all over your candya*s, right here tonight!
*Ric Flair music plays and out comes Flair*
Flair: Hunter, a couple of weeks me and you fought in the most brutal and barabic cage match in the history of this business. Even though, you were victorious, this problem between me and you are far from over. You son of a b1tch, I gave you everything that you needed and you thank me by attacking me. Well, you know what, tonight your a*s is mine!
*I'm Back plays and Eric Bischoff comes out to the ring*
Eric: You know what, enough is enough! I will not let this continue to happen! So you know what I'm going to do? Tonight's main event will be the team of Shawn Michaels and Triple H versus The Rock and Ric Flair!
