WWE RAW Opener:
Chris Jericho opens the show in the back discussing the "Bragging Rights" pay per view, announcing that the main event would an "epic" battle between the Raw and Smackdown. Jericho reveals that although he can appear on both shows, he is first and foremost a Smackdown superstar. He also says that he has been named the "Team Captain" of Smackdown’s team. Raw’s guest host, Nancy O’Dell, then interrupts him saying that they don’t start Raw with him; they start it with DX.
Triple H makes his way to the ring without Shawn Michaels.
Hunter says that it’s unusual night (I guess with HBK gone), so they’re going to have to do it a little different. He does their normal speech, throwing out "for Shawn Michaels, who’s not here". Triple H explains that he heard from Shawn Michaels earlier and that he said he couldn’t make the show. Hunter then decides to call HBK at home to badger him. He puts the phone on speaker and a message system answers with Shawn singing the "Sexy Boy" theme with words changed to say he’s not home. Shawn then picks up and is embarrassed that they heard the message. Triple H asks where he is and Shawn explains that his daughter was sick and he was sorry he couldn’t make it. HBK says he just read her a story and Hunter asked if it was the new "Unauthorized History of DX" book. Shawn says no at first, but then says he definitely read it to her. Hunter says he’ll let Shawn go and tells the fans to say "Hi". Shawn says "Bye Indianapolis".
While Triple H was about to start talking about "Bragging Rights", he’s interupted by JeriShow.
Hunter makes a quick joke about Big Show holding up the DX book and smiling into the camera, but Jericho takes it and slams it down. Jericho starts talking about being named the captain of Team Smackdown. Loud "You Suck" chant breaks out. Y2J puts over the success of Smackdown saying that it’s a better show because he’s on it. Triple H then sarcastically talks about how "great" a show Smackdown is, but says it’s not better than Raw. Jericho says that although Big Show is technically apart of the Raw roster, he wants him to be on his team. Triple H then puts down Big Show by claiming everything Jericho says, Big Show does. Big Show denies that the claim and says they are equal and also says that he kind of "carries the team". Jericho doesn’t like that obviously and asks him to repeat it. "You heard me" says Big Show and says he’s not the one who got pinned last week. Jericho says that he wasn’t the one that was the laughing stock of Sports Center when he was humiliated by Shaq. Big Show comes back with Y2J getting punked by Bob Barker. They go back and forth more until Big Show finally changes his mind and says he wants to be on Raw’s team now instead of Smackdown. Triple H says they don’t have any spaces open on the team unless Show "earns" his spot in a match later tonight on Raw. His opponent? Chris Jericho.
That match is next.
