The only thing
worth quoting was last night Michael Cole begging for
In fact after the Pile driver he took last
night, perhaps he will never speak again. Moving on from all
things Michael Cole, I would like to say Thank you to Vince
Mcmahon for giving me the oppurtunity to compete on the
grandest stage of them all Wrestlemania.

All Michael Cole wanted
was his Wrestlemania moment and look at him now, he’s not
even here tonight because of what you did to him.

that was certainly watching the match last night closely,
The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels.
Cuts to a shot of HBK at home.
JR: Shawn give us your thoughts on what went down last
Shawn Michaels: well JR before I go on, lemme just say that
both those men gave it everything they had last night and
they completely lived up to and supassed the hype that the
match was given.
As far as what happened after the match,
well JR you and I know better than anyone how hot Triple H’s
temper can be, I think the stress got to him and he had to
vent some frustration.
JR: Do you think this is the last time we will see the game?
Shawn Michaels:
Its tough to say, The streak isn’t like any
Championship Triple H has held before, theres no instant
rematches. If your patient enough you earn your rematch next
year if not you die trying.
JR: Going back to Wrestlemania 25 you were in a similar
predicament, you had lost your first encounter with the dead
man your were confused as where to go next, what do you
think Triple H should do next?
Shawn Michaels: I think he needs to really consider where he
sees his career going forth now, obviously he has a huge
investment in this business being in the family that he is
in, and i can never see him staying away from the business
but perhaps this is his time to exit quietly from the
JR: Shawn as always a pleasure.

Ladies and Gentleman give it up for the man that

John Cena:
My oh my is hot up in here tonight. Last night
was one of the most crazy nights of my life, standing toe to
toe withe the peoples champ the Rock.
You could litteraly
feel the place about to errupt. The energy in the air was
off the scale, that is until the Miz came in and as per
usual tried to pee on everyones parade.
Unfortunately for
Mr Miz he’s got alot left to learn.
Now in regard to The
Rock, sure me and him may have done some verbal sparring and
I may have gotton a wee bit frustrated with being compared
to bowls of cereal but at the end of the day The Rock and I
have always had a mutual respect for each other as we share

the same compassion of entertaining each and everyone of you
people each and every week!
So without further a do let me
introduce to The Rock!
The Rocks Music hits.
The Rock walks to the ring.
The Rock: Finally The Rock has come back to.....
it was
nearly 3months ago when Vince McMahon came to The Rock and
pitched the idea of hosting wrestlemania and it was nearly 2
months ago since The Rock called you John Cena out.
within that time The Rock has never felt so appreciated by
the people out here, out there (points to camera) and back
there (points to locker room).
And as much as this may seem
like a farewell ah na nah nah this perhaps is just the
beginning you see The Rock checked his schedule for next
April and there was one date that stuck out more than one of
John Cenas T-Shirts, wrestlemania 28 in The Rocks home town
of Miami!
So let me run this by you John,
The Rock vs John Cena.
Crowd reacts.

John Cena: Rock....If you want some come get some.
Rock smiling back
The Rock: John....Just bring it!
The Rock and John Cena shake hands and stare each other down
Vince McMahon: woah woah slow down theres still another year
before we reach wrestlemania 28!
In the mean time Rock
myself and some of the boys in the back would to thank you
for your participation in wrestlemania and here is a gesture
of our good will.

Half way through the Tribute video package the lights in the
arena go out and the video goes blank.
The Rock, Cena and Vince look around.
Tron: Appearing is the back of a chair with a man sitting on
The chair spins round revealing Wade Barrett in a dark
room with just his face lit.
(Much like the Survivor Series
2010 promos)

Tron Wade Barret: Pardon the interuption but there seems to
be a mistake.
The three of you seem to think that you are
going to be around in the next year to come, unfortunately
the winds of change are blowing through the wwe faster and
more furious than ever and HE has demanded for you to be
terminated. He is our ruler and he will guide us to a future
where we will have the chance to shine, he wants your
company vince and he will stop at nothing until he gets it.
He has given me an army to lead, and lead them I shall. Let

Harris, Michael Mcgilicutty, David Otunga and Mason Ryan

ring apron.
John Cena is poised at one side The Rock ready to go on the
Vince McMahon worried for his safety in the middle.
They all jump the ring and Rock and Cena continue to fend
them off with Mcmahon still in the middle.
Suddenly running down the ramp comes Brodus Clay, Byron
Saxton, Lucky Cannon, Connor O’Brian, Jacob Novak, Johnny
Curtis, Tyler Rex.
The gang like beatdown occurs on Cena, Rock and Vince.
Superstars like R-Truth, Santino, Mark Henry, Koslov,
Morrison all trying to make the save with Lawler joining too
but to no luck the numbers are just too strong. Some of the
group starts to target wwe staff members like Justin
Roberts, JR and everyone else around ring side.
Wade barrett walks to the ring pleased with what he sees as
he steps on the beaten bodies to climb into the ring, he
takes cheaps shots at Cena and The Rock and grabs a mic.
Wade Barret: The uprising is now and HE has arrived.
