Raw starts with some old school highlights. Just small clips, of Hogan, SGT. Slaughter, Warrior, etc…(like they did when Survivor Series started) Then it leads to highlights of what lead to the PPV…
Mick Foley resigns as commissioner
Earlier today, WWF airplane landed and Foley was waiting for Vince McMahon. Foley went in the plane to talk to Vince McMahon. Foley tells him to name a chair in his airplane after Foley’s. Vince said “How about the Dude Love toilet?” They both laughed. Foley said he won’t stick around because of Vince, he doesn’t want to be commissioner and that he resigns as commissioner. Foley tells him to fire him instead of him quitting. If Foley walks out that plane, he is done with the WWF. Foley leaves and Vince tells him good luck and have a nice day with a smile on his face.
RAW officially starts and Jim Ross was sitting with an empty chair beside him. Jim Ross says he doesn’t know who will take Paul Heyman’s place.
Vince McMahon comes out. Despite Mick Foley quitting, tonight is a night for celebration. The WWF survived Survivor Series. Vince says he owes one man something that he will never be able to repay. One man who more than any other, deserves the fans applause. That one man is Kurt Angle. Because of Kurt, the Alliance is dead. Because of Angle, ECW and WCW are dead. The only thing that exists of WCW is the wcw title around the Rock’s waist. From now on, it will be known as the world title. Tonight, there will be a lot of changes. Someone will join the Vince McMahon, kiss my ass club. It all started this morning. He’s allowing one member of the Alliance who seeks to be employed by the WWF, that one member of the Alliance, who is not a champion, will walk into this ring and kiss Vince’s ass. Speaking of the Alliance, that’s nothing for what’s in store for Austin. The moment Austin walks into this building, he will execute his plans. What! Speaking of changes, Vince points out that there is an empty chair beside Jim Ross. Vince McMahon invites Paul Heyman down to the ring. Heyman comes out and sites beside Jim Ross. Heyman screamed at Jim Ross and said he got away with it.
Vince tells him to get in the ring. Heyman enters the ring. Vince tells him, just for the record, he appreciates people who speak their mind. Vince remembers the things Heyman said about him, and Vince is ok with that. Vince McMahon informs Heyman that “He’s Fired!”. Vince tells him to leave. Paul Heyman wanted to fight Vince and when Vince took his jacket off, Paul Heyman left the ring and tried to attack Jim Ross and Ross delivered a few shots on Heyman and security took Heyman away.
Vince McMahon introduces Heyman’s replacement and it’s JERRY THE KING LAWLER! Lawler is back. Lawler takes his place at the commentating table beside Jim Ross and says that it’s great to be back.
