Reveals the Hardcore belt and presents it to Edge.
Foley: Because you're hardcore, you're hardcore, you're hardcore. I know what you're thinking Edgester. This was given to me as a retirement present, but you deserve the hardcore championship!
Edge fights back the tears - haha.
Edge: I don't know what to say. (YOU SUCK chants) I mean...Mick you're right. Everything that I've accomplished in my career I do deserve. But I can't accept this. I can't. I mean - it's true all of that is true...but you forgot to mention one very important thing. I've got the hottest girl in Vegas coming to bed with me tonight. But Mick listen to me - you're the original Hardcore legend. You had to toil in obscurity in bingo halls for years. You had to bite your tongue when Ric Flair called you a glorified stuntman. And while I did beat your ass at WM - I can't do it. I can't. You Mick Foley - you deserve to be the Hardcore champion.
Foley: Wait a second - I'm giving you a gift and now you're giving it back. Now it is ironic that the man who called me a glorified stuntman earned his check at WM in a ladder match. But I think you deserve the hardcore championship. You think I deserve the hardcore championship. And as far as I can tell - there's only one way to resolve the issue. It's you and I - one more time to beat the living hell out of each other...right here tonight!
Edge: You wanna see it?? Mick Foley-Edge, hardcore one more time. I've got an even better idea.
Edge whispers in Lilian Garcia's ear.
Foley and Edge raise the belt in the air.
**ECW music hits**
Paul Heyman is here!!!!! YEEEESSS! ECW chants!
Heyman: Las Vegas - give me just a little bit of advice here. This is the only state where it's legal - as I find it ironic as I look in the ring and see live prostitution on Monday Night Raw. Ho, ho, ho, ho - (the crowd joins in). I'm sorry! Lita....I wasn't talking to you. I was talking to you Mick Foley. You see cards on the table - Mick Foley you're a prostitute. Here you are - a legend, a man that gave his blood, his sweat, his tears, his sacrifice to entertain each of these people. Here you are a man that took time away from his family to entertain these people and you prostitute yourself away from them for Edge and Lita. You prostitute their love and their admiration for them? Hey Mick - you prostituted your name, you prostituted your legacies, but I'll be damned if I sit here and prostitute the name of hardcore! Why don't you Mick tell me what it's like to look in the mirror and see the reflection and all that reflection is is a shell of your former self.
Foley: You know something Paul - I'm going to clear things up because that is not what I see when I look in the mirror. You know what I see - I see the co-holder of the WWE Hardcore championship. I see a WWE superstar. I see a real-life action figure. I see the author of the best-selling books including the one I'm working on now that will be available next spring. How ironic it is that you criticize me when you yourself, Paul, have nothing left. You're not the GM of SD anymore. You don't own your own company. You've got nothing Paul - no power. So go back in the hole of ground and let me, Edge, and Lita enjoy the admiration of the WWE fans.
Heyman: Don't boo him - he's right. I'm powerless. I have no more power. No Mick - I do. I do have the power to make a challenge. Gee, I'm in involved in this little concept called ECW One Night Stand live on PPV Sunday Night, June 11th. My suggestion to you at ECW ONS on June 11th we take the co-holders of the Hardcore title and match them up against any two scumbags to take the two of you through an extreme experience that neither one of you could ever deny.
