Attendance: 12,480/ 12,480
The pyros explode and RAW starts off quickly. JR and King introduce RAW and that tonight, the final spot for the fatal four way match that has implications on the World Championship Match at Summerslam will be filled. JR says we arenít sure what the match is, nor who the participants are, but the RAW General Manager, Eric Bischoff, is in the ring and he is expected to make an announcement regarding this. The camera zooms to Bischoff in the ring and Bischoff puts an evil doctor-like smile on his face. Bischoff opens up by saying that he has easily been the most successful General Manager in WWE history because of all the innovative, creative stuff he has brought to this company. He says that he thought of the fatal four way at Vengeance, which has so much stakes behind it. Bischoff says there is one more spot to be filled and he could easily make another one on one match, but tonight, he says his generosity got in the way.
Bischoff says that tonight, ten superstars will be handpicked to have the chance to be represented in the fatal four way match. He says these ten men will compete in an over the top rope match. He says that no GM would be this generous, ever. He tells the crowd to thank him for providing more entertainment than anybody in the back and anything they could watch on television. The crowd boos, but then Triple Hís music hits and the crowdís boos get even louder. Triple H comes out to the stage and he walks slowly down to the ring in his business suit. Triple H smirks and asks Bischoff how generous he really is. He doesnít let Bischoff speak and continues speaking. He says he wants the most generous general manager in the WWE to be generous and give the World Heavyweight Champion, the face of the WWE, Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Triple H comes into the ring and he goes face to face with Bischoff. Triple H says he is sick of asking and wants to know where Stone Cold is and he wants to know now. Triple H grabs Bischoff by the tie, but Stone Coldís music hits and the crowd explodes. Austin makes his way to the stage and Austin says heís been sitting back and preparing for the Rock in thirteen days, but instead he hears a cry baby bitch every week in the ring. Austin says he is here now and he wants to know what the hell Triple H wants. Triple H tells Austin that Austin has shown zero respect to him and everyone should respect the Game because he is the World Heavyweight Champion, aka the best wrestler in the world. Austin looks confused and simply says what.
Triple H goes up to the ropes and yells at Austin. He says that he is going to kick Austinís redneck-self back into reality where he is no longer the best in the world. Triple H reminds Austin that he is no longer the ass kicker who wore the jacket, flipped the bird, and carried the championship around like he deserved it. Austin smiles on the stage again and tells Triple H that he has a message for him. Austin says that if he wanted to come back full time, he would be holding that World Title that Triple H has and he would make Triple H his bitch just like he did when Stone Cold was here full time, every night. Austin says he wishes he could come back every night and do this, but he says he cannot. He asks, however, the crowd if they want to see Stone Cold kick Triple Hís ass full time, give me a hell yeah. A loud hell yeah fills the arena and Triple H is angry.
Austin says he wants to embarrass Triple H now, but he has something he has to do first. He has to embarrass the Rock at Vengeance and Austin promises that he will come after Triple H for the World Heavyweight Championship at Summerslam. He says that is going to win the championship at Summerslam, retire as the best in the world, and retire with Triple H his bitch. Bischoff sneaks into the conversation and tells Austin that there is nothing in the contract that says if he beats Rock at Vengeance, Austin is due a title match at Summerslam. The crowd boos and Austin says what to Bischoff. Bischoff says he could repeat it, and Austin just says what again. Triple H tells Bischoff to calm down and focuses on Austin.
Triple H says that Austin is just throwing empty promises to all of us and that he wonít even beat the Rock at Vengeance. Triple H says he wants Austin to beat the Rock so Rock doesnít get his shot at Summerslam, but he knows at the same time that Austin just isnít good enough to beat the Rock. Austin says that in two Mondayís from now, he will stand in that ring after beating the Rock and challenge Triple H for the title at Summerslam. Austin says that is a full glass promise and thatís the bottom line, cuz Stone Cold said so. Austin turns around to leave and the Rock walks out the curtain. Rock and Austin stare down each other and exchange some words. The words get heated and Austin flips off the Rock and walks away to the back. Rock stares down at the ring to Triple H and RAW goes to commercial.
RAW comes back on air and King says that he cannot wait until those three dragons in Austin, Rock, and Triple H clash finally. JR says it is only a matter of time, but it is, also, only a matter of time until this great nationís birthday. He says Smackdown! this Thursday will celebrate America and everything that is great about the country. He says the Great American Smackdown! will surely be a great show.
