"Yes, sir, we promised you a great main eventů"
Here we go...
We start things off with the opening Raw video package. Pyro follows.
Cole and Lawler introduce us, and here comes Bret Hart.
Bret's got a mic. He talks about how Miz had the nerve to challenge him to a title match tonight. He called up WWE headquarters and told them to book it. He says he's had about a week to think about things, and it's important for him to be remembered the right way. He doesn't want to be remembered as being old and hanging on too long. He's not going to be wrestling anybody tonight. Loud boos from the crowd. He's sorry. BREAK THE WALLS!!!
Here comes Y2J. He asks Bret why. Bret says he explained himself. Jericho asks why he came back to the WWE in the first place. He can try to fool the fans, but he doesn't fool him. He knows the truth. Bret's a shell of his former self. He used to be one of the greatest, but now, he's nothing more than a pathetic has-been, tarnishing his legendary status. He's been around too long. The worst thing of all is that he's become the ultimate hypocrite. Bret doesn't care about closure. He came back for the same reason he left, he's a egodriven phony. That's the same reason he was screwed in Montreal, and he deserved it. Bret can't believe Jericho is calling him a phony, and tells him to look at himself. He remembers Jericho in the dungeon always slacking. Jericho says he looked in the mirror earlier today, and he says he's better than Bret will ever be. He has now become the best there is, was and ever will be. He asks Bret why he came out here tonight. He just had to come out here one last time to stand in the spotlight, to hear all these parasites chant his name one last time, hoping to feel like he still matters. The only person that matters is Chris Jericho. It's must be a terrible feeling for all the fans to be sickened to see what Bret has become. No one wants to see him anymore. Loud "We want Bret" chant. Bret's legacy rests on what happens tonight. Everyone will remember him as the man who went back on his word and was too scared to face Miz. His name means nothing anymore. The Hart name means nothing. His father would be so ashamed. Jericho starts to leave. Bret tells Jericho to tell Miz to get ready to face him. Jericho says he can't fool him. He knows he's going to come to the ring and get disqualified so he can say he at least tried. On behalf of The Miz, he'll make this match No Disqualifications. Bret agrees. He called him a hypocrite. After tonight, he'll be walking around with the United States Championship. This Sunday, Hart Dynasty is going to wipe out Jericho and Miz. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
Tonight, Orton and Edge have Pick Your Poison matches. Sponsor time, and there's a WWE Shop.com package. Does the Great Khali hate rental cars? Khali is in a rental car. Hornswaggle rolls up in a Hummer and starts laughing. Khali looks pissed.
YOU THINK YOU KNOW ME!! Edge comes out and has a mic. Wayne Brady, Meat Loaf, Vickie Guerrero. Randy Orton thinks he can RKO people at will. He thinks he can ride into town and RKO him. That's not gonna happen. At Over the Limit... GO!!!
