RAW opened with the same "In Memory" graphic for Randy "Macho Man" Savage that was displayed before last night's PPV.
The RAW opening plays and we're off!
Jerry "The King" Lawler's music hits and he enters the ring. Lawler says he doesn't want to take too much time, but our long national nightmare is over and Michael Cole has been beaten. He said he knew Cole would try to get out of kissing his feet, so he had a "Hart" up his sleeve, and he introduces Bret "The Hitman" Hart and heads to the commentator's booth.
Hart got on the mic and stated that he was happy to be on RAW. Hart said he and Lawler had their differences over the year, but he always had respect for him but he has no respect for Cole, so he wants to thank Lawler for shutting Cole up. "The truth shall set your free," and R-Truth interrupts and heads to the ring.
Truth says it's an honor and he can't believe his eyes. Truth notes to Hart that he's been in 0 world championship matches. Truth asked Hitman "to help me help you help me." He then took Hart's shades and went to give it to a "little Jimmy" at ringside. Truth said this means he should be next in line for a WWE championship, right? The crowd booed and Truth took the sunglasses off. Truth got back in the ring and said that he's not in line and used to think that wins and losses didn't matter as long as you gave the people what they wanted, but he was wrong. Truth says that maybe he needs to beat up a Hall of Famer to get some recognition.
Hart told him to go ahead, and the reason he got championship match was because he was "the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be," and the reason R-Truth hasn't received any was because he's a "freaking lunatic." Truth took offense and left the ring. John Cena's music hit and he headed to the ring.
Cena called Truth back. Cena said he was happy to see Hart back in a WWE ring, asked him how he was doing and turned his attention back to "the resident lunatic." Cena said that they used to be cool, and why he's changed. Truth said the whole conspiracy thing is about Cena. Truth said that the people make sure to make it all about Cena, but Cena said that he makes sure to make it all about the people. Truth started to flip out and said he wants his "son back". Truth said he never liked Cena, and said Cena and Hart and both propaganda tools to make the people feel good. Truth said he doesn't care about the people and how they feel, and it's all about him and he ain't going to feel right until he gets his WWE championship match. Cena said he was going to do something about it. The RAW GM chimes in.
