Raw starts off with footage of what happened on Smackdown and when Undertaker threw Austin through glass and when he attacked him in the ambulance.
Jim Ross says that the Undertaker has been given the night off for his own good by Vince McMahon.
Mick Foley came out and said that he is no longer the commissioner and his job is just to go around and make personal appearances and what better place to make an appearance then in his home town in Long Island and he gets a huge pop. Then Mick Foley talks about how Undertaker beat Austin in the ambulance. He said that he cheered his damn ass off. He said Undertaker is known by making people famous. He said he got thrown off a cage by him. He said Undertaker was not even mad at him when he did that, so you can imagine what he will do to Austin. Then Mick Foley plugs his book “Foley is Good” that will go on sale tomorrow and he said it would make a perfect mother’s day gift. Then we see Vince and Stephanie entering the building and William Regal tells them that Foley is in the ring and McMahon and Stephanie rush to the ring. Before they came, Foley asked the people what they think of William Regal as commissioner and they booed. He makes fun of Regal. NO CHANCE music hits and here comes Vince, Stephanie and Regal. Vince McMahon takes the microphone and tells Foley that he reminds him of an unwanted house guest. Because you never know when he will show up and he will stay too long. Vince said, since he fired Mick Foley, things have changed for the better. He tells Foley that he is now with Austin and he suspended the Rock. He gives him a brief history of what happened.
