In the arena:
The music of Vince McMahon hit in the arena as Joey Styles, Jerry Lawler and the Coach welcomed us to the show. Vince got on the mic and said as promised&the mic then died. Vince got a new mic and said as promised last week, we took out the trash. He said last week he fired Eric Bischoff s ass, and Eric Bischoff is going to stay fired. Not withstanding, he d like to thank Eric for his contributions and wish him and his family a Merry Christmas. He said people have been asking who is going to be the new General Manager of RAW, and a number of individuals come to mind. One might be his daughter Stephanie McMahon, his son Shane McMahon, a guy who was knocking on his door all afternoon&Theo Epstein. It could even be Ted Turner or one of the fans&just ribbing, it s not going to be one of the fans. He said tonight the interview process begins and an individual has been assigned to be the interim General Manager. That individual is thought of as a business icon and a genius, and that would be him, Vincent K. McMahon. He said he s gonna start where Bischoff left off, and we will know every individual who will be in the Elimination Chamber by the end of the night. All five individuals will qualify tonight and will join WWE Champion John Cena in the chamber. He then said the audience would not be censored here tonight as Kurt Angle s music hit&

Winner – Kurt Angle
Angle got on the mic and said he will have to take the chant for granted, just like every single week he has to come out here and listen to them. He said next week, from Afghanistan, RAW is WAR will provide a special Tribute to the Troops. He said it was on a voluntary basis, and he is proud to say he didn t volunteer. He said why would he fly 30 hours and risk his life for the troops of a country that doesn t respect him. He said he isn t that stupid. The people chant you suck, well guess what, he doesn t suck. He won a gold medal with a broken neck and did the ultimate thing that anyone in this world can do. Let s compare, the troops have done absolutely nothing! He said if they catch Osama he MIGHT go over and sign a few autographs. He said their perception of a hero is all wrong. Daivari then appears on the screen next to a statue of Larry Bird, and Angle said he just thought of something. He said why don t they do to the hometown heroes exactly what they do to him. With that, Daivari spat right on the Larry Bird statue and then picked up a can of spray paint. John Cena then appeared and stood right in front of Daivari and grabbed the can and knocked him down sending him running.
Cena said Angle sends Daivari out here to spray paint Larry Bird? You re better than that. Wait, no you re not. He said he stands there in the ring saying he s too good to visit the men and women who are dying and fighting for him, and that makes him a heartless bastard. He said he saw the soldiers who are not home for the holidays just so he can be, but that s too good for Kurt Angle. He said half the people out there thinks he sucks too, and the people have the right to say what they want, when they want. He doesn t care how many gold medals he has won. The fans chanted USA, USA as Cena said it s time to face facts. He said without the troops that he is too good for, there is no America. He said with no America, there are no heroes, and if he can t get that, then you can t see him. Cena then spray painted the camera as we go to commercial.
Back on RAW and Ric Flair is shown backstage and Edge comes in with Lita. Edge asks if he s going to go out and beat the crap out of someone else on the turnpike. Edge told Flair to settle down and asked what the lawyers would think if he was involved in another assault, with a woman no less. Edge and Lita laughed as they walked away.
Shawn Michaels is shown getting ready and Shelton Benjamin comes in. Benjamin said last week he asked for an attitude, and he gave him one, but he left him hanging. Michaels said Benjamin stuck himself in a situation where he wasn t needed. Benjamin said Michaels was too busy trying to be the Showstopper rather than a team player. He said old habits die hard, selfish to the end. He said the only attitude HBK is interested in is his own. He said tonight he is going to give Carlito some of his attitude, and he s going to the Elimination Chamber, and he wants Michaels in there too.

Matt has a blackboard out there and said he wants to talk about Family Values. He asked what happened to this country, and where are all the values they once held dear. Working Mothers , he asked a man at ringside and said the only work his mother does is what she s flat on her back, and the more she gives out the more Uncle Sam dishes out. He said they are born from greed and he s tired of paying because their mothers can t keep their legs closed. And where are the fathers? Out with other women, or perhaps in Massachusetts, marrying other men! Striker said he shouldn t blame them, it s not his fault they are out there smoking the pot or getting all tattooed up. They don t know any better. He said the people are uneducated, and you see, that s where he comes in. Judging from what he can see, Family Values are missing from their homes, and they should look for new role models, towards a man like him. He said he will be their father figure, after all, he s Matt Striker and he s going to be our teacher!
