Eric Bischoff comes out with a briefcase. He said that Brock Lesnar likes to refer to himself as the Undisputed WWE champion, and since Stephanie convinced him to be exclusive for Smackdown, he thinks the fans for RAW deserve their own World champion. He said that Triple H is the real #1 contender. Eric Bischoff introduces HHH.
HHH comes out. HHH shakes hands with Bischoff. HHH said that there is one thing Eric forgot to mention, and that’s the real reason Brock left to Smackdown, that’s because of HHH. HHH says that Brock knows that he doesn’t belong in the same ring as HHH. Brock doesn’t belong speaking his name. The second HHH beat the Undertaker to become #1 contender, Brock knew his days as champion were numbered. It turns out that the next big thing has no balls. Eric agrees with what HHH said. HHH says that he wishes he could have signed HHH for Nitro a few years ago. Eric compliments HHH. Eric Bischoff opens the briefcase and pulls out the WCW title and tells HHH that legends have held that title and now it’s the official title for RAW I guess. HHH is awarded the title. HHH says that a lot of guys would come out and say that they don’t deserve it, but he said that he isn’t a lot of guys. HHH says that nobody deserves to be World champion more than him.
Wooooo, Ric Flair comes out to the ring. Flair says that RAW deserves its own title. Flair said that HHH held the title once, but Flair held it 16 times. Flair said that no one awarded him the title, he busted his ass. He paid the price of a wrestling lifetime. Flair says that HHH needs to earn the right to wear that title. Bischoff makes a match between Flair and HHH for later tonight. HHH says it would be an honor and a privilege. Flair said it’s an honor to be his first opponent for the title. Bischoff officially announces the match, World champion, HHH, defends the title against Ric Flair, and #17 might be right around the corner for Mr. Flair. Then HHH punches Flair and leaves.
Note from me: Let’s give out world titles! Who wants one? This is wrestling these days.
HHH looks at Bubba and asks him if he has a problem. Bubba says yea. HHH says that Bubba is jealous like everyone else. Bubba tells HHH that it isn’t a look of jealousy, it’s a look of hunger. Bubba basically trashes HHH and leaves.
