McMahon said the people outside Wall Street are standing up for what they believe in, as are the people in the parking lot and is Triple H. Vince said that he likes what HHH has been doing, but unfortunately, the 55+ outside in the parking lot do not. Vince said the Board of Directors sympathizes with the protesters and they are concerned that the walk out will spiral out of control, and can lead to no live events, ppv or WrestleMania. The Board is concerned that the result could be a financial catastrophe, and that Triple H's services for running Raw are no longer required. Vince said that no member of the McMahon family is going to run RAW, but the Board is looking for someone who is permanent and unbiasedto be GM. Until they find that individual, they have named an interim GM, and it's John Laurinaitis. I was almost expecting Mick Foley.
Laurinaitis comes out on stage and has a staredown with HHH as we head to commercial.
Backstage, Laurinaitis is welcoming the talent back. Morrison says that Laurinaitis absolutely sucks. Laurinaitis tells him that he'll get him a match later. Laurinaitis then welcomes Christian and tells him that he'll wrestle Morrison later tonight. Christian is ecstatic that Laurinaitis is GM, and says he should be permanent GM, not interim.
Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole head to the announce booth.
John Morrison vs. Christian
Morrison and Christian head to the ring in their street clothes. Christian is accompanied by Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes, Vickie Guerrero and Jack Swagger. Christian pinned Morrison with the spear.
After the match, the heels all hit their finishers on Morrison. Christian, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger all celebrated in the ring over the fallen Morrison.
Mark Henry's music hits and he heads to the ring as we go to commercial.
Backstage Laurinaitis is on the phone, and is gloating on the phone. Triple H approaches him backstage. Laurinaitis said that he had nothing to do with this, and it was the Board that made the decision, but that he loves the WWE. Triple H asked him if he ever tried to pick up his teeth with a bunch of broken fingers and walked off.
Mark Henry is in the ring and cuts a promo about how he's the most dominant champion of all time, and that he doesn't fear anyone. He says he'll face anyone as long as they're the number one contender, and the Big Show is not. The replay Big Show's return on SmackDown and his chokeslam of Henry through a table.
Henry says that he took all of that punishment from Show and he's still here, and that vengeance is his at Vengeance. Randy Orton over the mic says that he's wrong, and that "vengeance is mine." Randy Orton's music hits and he heads to the ring.
