WWE RAW Opener:

Justin Roberts introduces Batista to a huge chorus of boos, and he comes out to the ramp with the help of two referees. He has a wheelchair in the ring and sits down in it and screams for his spotlight. Batista says last night he said I Quit because his life was being threatened, and that he is considering filing suit against Cena and the WWE. Batista says he could stoop to Cena’s low level but he has dignity. He has injuries that will keep him out for a long time, but he will come back healthier than ever and wants a rematch. Justin Roberts cuts Batista off and introduces the new GM of RAW… Bret Hart! Bret says there’s a new sherriff if town, and what he says, goes. Bret says if John Cena is still champion at Fatal 4 Way, he will face three other guys who will qualify tonight. Bret tells Batista he can get his shot at Cena by qualifying now. Batista says he can’t do it because he is hurt, but Bret tells him his opponent Randy Orton is hurt too. Batista says he won’t do it and he can’t compete, and if Bret makes him forfeit he’ll quit the company. Bret calls the forfeit and says Orton is in at Fatal 4 Way and leaves Batista in the ring.

Batista is screaming that the WWE is nothing without him and asking the fans if they think he won’t do it. He screams I QUIT as he slams the microphone down on the mat and gets help out of the ring as the fans chant "na na na na hey hey hey goodbye". Justin Roberts says let’s hear it for Batista to rub it in a bit more and the fans let him have it as he leaves the arena.

Fatal 4 Way Qualifying Match
Mark Henry vs Sheamus

Sheamus tries to overpower Henry but Henry meets him with a shoulderblock. Sheamus clubs away at Henry but it has no effect and Henry dumps Sheamus outside. Sheamus targets Henry’s shoulder and uses it to get back in the ring and control the match. He keeps Henry on the ground in an armbar then headbutts Henry when he tries to get up. Henry hits a splash in the middle but Sheamus kicks out at two. Sheamus sidesteps Henry and tries to go up top but Henry grabs him and puts him in press slam position. Henry’s shoulder gives out and Sheamus hits the bicycle kick to win the match and gain entry to the Fatal 4 Way match.

Winner – Sheamus
