There are no announcers at the booth.
Triple H is shown backstage heading to the ring as the crowd chants "Triple H." Triple H's music hits and he heads to the ring. Triple H says he was bewildered coming in to the arena and seeing the crew and talent walking out. He says that they didn't walk out on him, but rather on the fans. Triple H rips the talent for RAW getting too hard for them. He noted that the stars in the rally have their gear, but refuse to perform for the fans unless he stands down. He says that they will all come back if he is no longer running Monday Night RAW, and asks the fans what he should do. He asks if he should walk away or quit, and the crowd yells, "NO!" He says he's not a quitter, and he will not be coerced or blackmailed, and he will not quit! He says that everyone in the parking lot can kiss his ass, and that he'll wrestle a broomstick for two hours and he will give Monday Night RAW to the fans. He also said that a broomstick can give him a better match than a lot of the guys in the parking lot. The burial of the roster continues. John Cena's music hits.
Cena comes out to a chorus of boos and says that there is a reason he didn't come out for the vote last week and has kept quiet. He says that everyone in the parking lot has contacted him personally to join them, while HHH hasn't even sent him a text asking him to stay. Cena noted that he's worked for Vince and Eric Bischoff, Vickie Guerrero, all the guest hosts, Mike Adamle and an anonymous RAW GM, and that Triple H is his boss and he's staying. He said he's staying because he loves the chaos and the unsafe workplace and that he's staying on Monday Night RAW. Sheamus' music hits.
Sheamus enters the ring and takes a mic. He talks about how he took HHH out to make a name for himself, and Triple H never sued him and actually gave him the biggest ass kicking of his entire life. Sheamus said the result would be different today, but he's got a lot of respect for him for doing it. He said that he didn't travel thousands of miles to sit in the parking lot with all "those losers" and he's here to be a part of Monday Night RAW! CM Punk's music hits.
Punk comes out to a mixed reaction. He says that this is all his fault since he's been at the epicenter of all the controversy. Punk says that everyone in the parking lot misunderstood him, and he never breached his contract. He said that if anyone has a reason to be upset, it's him. He said that he deals with his problems personally. He said that this is professional wrestling, not ballet, and he's here. He asks, "what do we do now?" Triple H said that we do what we do, and that's "shut up and fight!" Triple H says that Sheamus will face John Cena next and he'll referee, and he offers Punk the chance to do commentary and say anything he feels like. Punk accepts, and wears Triple H's blazer. Triple H also asks Punk if he'll ring the bell and get "double pay," and Punk agrees.
Punk rings the bell and we're off.
John Cena vs. CM Punk with Triple H as referee
During the match, Vince McMahon's music hits and he enters the ring. McMahon apologizes for interrupting the match, but wants a word with Triple H and asks Cena, Sheamus and Punk to go to the back and thanks them for standing up for what they believe in.
