HHH talks about attack:
HHH is backstage where he says last week he got attacked by a large number of superstars. He says all those involved did it our of jealousy. He says the people who did this need to ask themselves if they did the right thing. Did they do the right thing by attacking the man? The guy who puts the food on the other wrestler’s tables? HHH asks them to think it all over. He says he will not be on Raw this week, so lets see how Raw goes without him. He says next week he will come back and demand the respect he deserves. HHH says there is only one diamond in this business and you are looking at him. “Without me, Raw is nothing.”
Tajiri gets assaulted:
Some new hot announcer chick talks to Tajiri and asks him what the locker room thought of HHH’s statements. Tajiri said the wrestlers are mad as hell and they don’t care if they NEVER see HHH again! Flair shows up and asks the chick to leave them be. Flair says that there are no hard feelings even though Tajiri was one of the men who attacked HHH last week. Flair extends his hand to Tajiri but Batista comes from behind and grabs Tajiri by the head and slams him into a metal crate!
This leads to Flair and Batista heading to the ring. Flair says the people need to respect HHH and what happened last week was unacceptable. Flair tells Bischoff to restore order on Raw or else Flair and Batista will go back there and destroy the entire locker room!
Bischoff comes to the ring and starts things off by saying he will announce Raw’s matches for the Survivor Series pay per view. Christian vs. Shelton, Trish vs. Lita, and a classic Survivor Series match. Chris Jericho, Chris Benoit, Maven, and Orton vs. HHH, Batista, Edge…. and Gene Snitsky! Flair looks a little upset and he asks Bischoff why his name was left out of there by mistake. Bischoff said this brings him to the personal part. He says if he does not get matches he wants to see, then he will let the inmates run the Asylum. He says he is sick of Flair bossing him around and he has doen everything for Evolution. He asks what kissing Evolution’s ass for the last two years has gotten him? He says absolutely nothing! So from now on he does what he wants. He says after Survivor Series he is going to take a month long break and this is where the match comes into place. The winner of the classic Survivor Series match will have control of RAW for that time! Batista tries to tell Bischoff it’s a dumb idea. Bischoff asks if that is a threat. Bischoff says that HHH says that without HHH Raw is nothing but Bischoff says that without that world title, HHH is nothing!
