"Yes, sir, we promised you a great main event…"
We open tonight's show with a highlight package of last night's Career vs. Streak Match with The Undertaker defeating and retiring Shawn Michaels. Every big move in slow motion and one emotional Shawn Michaels leaving WrestleMania for the last time.
Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler are at ringside from Phoenix, Arizona. And tonight, we get Shawn Michaels' farewell speech.
But to start, we open with Batista slowly strolling down to the ring, lookng lie his normal joyous self. He yells at someone, I guess maybe for not getting his spotlight when he wanted. He eventually gets it as he is just about to hit the ring. Batista has the microphone as he waits for the crowd to die down. He says we all know that we are expected Batista is to complain, moan, and groan about WrestleMania, but he on't give us the satisfaction. He calls last night a blip on the radar and a fluke. Nobody will remember it next month as a "you tapped out" chant starts. He says he is entitled to a rematch and he does not care what happened at WrestleMania because John Cena cam't beat him. AND THE CHAMP IS HERE!!!! Cena comes down to the ring and grabs a microphone. He says the energy from WrestleMania is still here and that some guy kept syaig that Cena can't Batista, but he must have missed last night, because it happened. And after all the talk about how Batista wanted the match, how Batista called himself the face of the company… and the face of the company tapped out. Cena says that nobody will forget WrestleMania for the moments last forever. He hypes up Shawn Michaels' final chapter and says Batista can make history by having his rematch with Cena tonight on the most historic broadcast of Monday Night Raw. Cena then says this is when the other guy says not tonight and asks Batista to do something different and give the fans what they want. He tells Batista to prove he is the face of the company and give them the rematch tonight. Batista, of course, says not tonight and lays in with a cheap shot, but gets run off by John Cena. But form behind comes Jack Swagger with the Money in the Bank briefcase. He nails John Cena from behind and lays out Cena with the briefcase. He asks for a referee and is cashing in his shot!!! Cena is able to get an STF, but Swagger slips away and decides to not cash in his title shot. Since the bell never rang, the match never happened, and he still has his title shot. John Cena grabs his title and heads to the back.
We go to Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler and they once again hype up Shawn Michaels' farewell. We get a video of the Heartbreak Career. This clips is of Michaels' debut as part of the Rockers.
We are back and the WWE Slam of the Week is Randy Orton defeating Cody Rhodes and Ted Dibiase last night.
Back on Raw and out comes the Hall of Famer, the Million Dollar Man! Coming out with him is Pat Patterson, IRS, Arn Anderson, and Nick Bockwinkel. And now out come Rowdy Roddy Piper with Sgt. Slaughter, Ricky Steamboat, and Tony Kovina. Jerry Lawler then gets up and joins the legends around the ring. We now get the Guest Hosts for tonight, Rob Corddry and Clark Duke from Hot Tub Time Machine! They seem a little nervous as they are on stage. They announce tonight's main event of Batista and Jack Swagger to face John Cena and whoever he gets to be a partner. They also announce a special Hot Tub match between them and the WWE Divas. And the crowd is not invited. But we do have something special in place, so we have a special 1980's Legends Lumberjack Match.
