* Live from Oklahoma City, OK
by Dave Kilgore
Show opens with recap of HHH confronting GM Johnny from last week and the return of the Undertaker. Undertaker rose and made his intentions clear. What is HHH thinking?
First out this week is……………….WWE C.O.O. Triple H. HHH says was out last week to fire John, contrary to what he has said this past week. HHH sees John as a backstabbing, ass kissing weasel and those are his good qualities. Says John flew up to Stanford this morning to make a plea to keep his job and they have asked HHH to not make a decision yet. HHH says the board may have a decision as early as tomorrow morning. Now to the return of the Deadman. HHH says Taker hasn’t been seen he was carried from the ring at the last Wrestlemania. HHH says after 20 years, Taker still gives him butterflies and he stands before Taker humbled to be in the ring with him. HHH talks about Taker wanting a rematch this year. HHH says there was no rush looking at the Deadman last week. That he looked Taker in the eyes and he felt sorry, felt bad for Taker, because of what he did to Taker last year. Says he chooses to remember Taker in a different manner (Cut to video package of Taker’s career). HHH says he doesn’t want to remember this (Cut to Taker being beat down and carried from ring after last year’s Wrestlemania match). HHH says Taker’s legacy will never be matched. 19-0 at Wrestlemania. Hunter says out of respect, he says no to Taker’s rematch request. HHH says he knows if there’s a next time, he knows what he would have to do to finish it. Says maybe that’s what Taker wants. Says he saw Taker’s limits last year and will not be the guy to push him past those limits. This is over says Hunter. He goes to leave but his music is cut off. Lights out. Video on big screen of Taker watching video clips……says this is not over. Says he will give HHH one more chance at immortality. This is not over.
