We are introduced to the new Raw General Manager, Brad Maddox. He says he is glad to be the GM, but he can’t fill the shoes of the great Vickie Guerrero. He says he gave Vickie the spot on the pre-show cast, and he says everyone around the world would like to thank her for her contributions to Money Night Raw. He tries to start a “Thank You, Vickie” chant, but it doesn’t work all that well. The crowd chants “You Got Fired!” instead. Maddox says Vickie puts the “E” in WWE, and then shows a tribute video for her. He tells the crowd to give her a standing ovation as The Miz’s music hits.
