Hawkins and Reks make their way to the ring. They face the announcers; Hawkins speaks first. He says that last week Striker was supposed to announce him as being the new guy in charge of the show, but instead we got Regal. Reks says Regal walks his geezer butt down the ramp every night sits there and flaps his gums all night. Now he has segued into "Matt's coordinator." He says neither Regal nor Striker could get it done in the ring and now they are has-beens. Regal takes off his headset and stands up at the booth. Some people chant his name. He says he will ignore their speech for the moment but if they want to get back in the ring next week, then he has a job for them. He produces two mops and a bucket. Reks asks if this is a joke. He says they are not janitors. Regal says that after the way they have treated him and Striker, they are whatever Regal wants them to be. A fan screams: "That means you're 'doin the job.'" Regal says the only thing good enough for them is to be the toilet cleaners at the Mohegan Sun. He says they could choose not to do it, but Regal will never book them on the show again. The crowd chants: "Do the job." Reks and Hawkins each take a mop and walk toward the back; they leave the bucket. Yoshi Tatsu's music hits and the men pass each other on the ramp. Yoshi looks back at them and giggles. Johnny Curtis is introduced.
