- We go right to the ring and out comes Vince McMahon to a big pop.
Vince welcomes us. He says the word epic is thrown around a lot but tonight will truly be epic. He guaran-damn-tees tonight will be one we never forget. Here's one reason why... he introduces Stephanie McMahon and Triple H.
Stephanie says she feels the love and thanks Vince for the welcome. She's not going to let him down tonight. Triple H gets the crowd to give it up for Vince and says he's the reason we're all here. Stephanie gets a "Vince" chant going. Vince says that's a load of crap, let's get the show moving. Vince introduces John Cena and out he comes to a mixed reaction. Vince says if Team Authority wins, Cena is personally responsible for the termination of his partners' contracts. He also reminds The Authority that they could lose power. Cena asks if The Authority will leave on their own or if he has to throw them out. Triple H says Cena won't be having a good holiday because of the other guys losing their livelihoods. Triple H goes on for a few minutes and then Stephanie talks. She says they will still be calling the shots from headquarters in Stamford, still running the show if Team Cena wins. She asks Vince to back that up and he says that's not exactly what he had in mind. Vince says they will still have their desk jobs but they will never have ay influence over the careers or personal lives of any WWE Superstar. Vince has arranged it to where only person can ever bring them back to power. Stephanie kisses up some more. Vince says he has so much confidence in The Authority winning tonight that the one person that can bring them back to power is John Cena. A small "yes!" chant starts and Cena smiles. Vince says that's how much faith he has in The Authority. Vince tells them to not let him down. Stephanie threatens to slap the smile off Cena's face. Cena says they will lose tonight and there's no chance in hell that he lets them back. Cena drops the mic and walks off as his music plays.
