- FINALLY, the Rock returns to in ring action in the WWE! Right after this video package highlighting not only Rocky's career, but also how he came to be in this match tonight with Cena.
Miz and Truth are, obviously, the first men to make their way out to the ring. Miz is nice enough to dedicate their entrance song to the NYC crowd, letting them know that the suck.
Cena is out next and he gets a hostile welcome to MSG. Cena stops to talk to the camera, saying the fans love him here in New York City.
And last, but most certainly not least, the man a lot of people bought this PPV just to see, The Rock! Rocky makes his way out to the ring looking absolutely JACKED, and he gets the pop of the night by far.
It looks like Rock and Miz are going to start things out for their respective teams. We get a long stare down before the Rock looks out to the crowd.
