* Live from Minneapolis, MN

Show opens with a recap of the Kane/Cena feud, showing clips from last week’s RAW of Eve escaping the ambulance into Cena’s arms, followed by their kiss witnessed by Zack Ryder. Then clips of later on, where Kana rolls Ryder off the ramp in the wheelchair.

Back to Eve talking to the Bella Twins, asking about Zack. They ask about Zack’s condition. Eve bursts into laughter. Eve says they aren’t friends, and that Zack’s an idiot who doesn’t know what to do with a woman like her, that she used Zack. She says now she has the big fish hooked, John Cena. Eve wants them to record her (with her phone) walking into Cena’s locker room. They seem hesitant. Eve turns around, right into Cena. Cena looks her down then walks away, shaking his head, smiling, as if he had just heard the whole plan.

In the arena, out comes John Cena to a mixed reaction. Video stills are shown of last night’s ambulance match. Cena, in ring, interrupted by Eve who wants to explain. She says it was taken out of context. Cena says she’s been talking enough. He says he heard it all backstage. Says Eve has been sippin’ the skank juice and wants to use “her assets” to further her career. She claims they’re friends but he says he lost a Broski for a Hoeski. Eve says she was just joking. Cena says don’t waste her time with him, hold out for the Rock. She’s self centered and will use anyone. He says they are both scandalous bitches. Eve falls to her knees, crying. Eve then jumps up, trying to kiss Cena until refs interfere. As Cena leaves, he says he’s disease free and wants to stay that way. Eve still crying in ring as crowd chants Hoeski. Refs help Eve out. Crowd chants “We want Ryder”.

Says it’s been a living hell….not physically, but mentally. He came to ring 3 weeks ago to end the uncertainty. Never did he think he would get the answer he got from HHH. Says the choice wasn’t Hunter’s to make. This has to come to an end. They are the last of their kind. The suit and tie are layers covering up who he really is. Says HHH will come out and look into his eyes. This is far bigger than them….this is the apocalypse. HHH comes out and gets in ring. HHH says 3 weeks ago Taker issued a challenge…Taker interrupts and says SHUT UP! Taker says Hunter’s excuses are pitiful. HHH says he understands how bad Taker wants this. HHH says his fate is to carry on the business while Taker’s is to be a leader for the next generation. HHH says he will not be the one to extinguish the torch, it’s bad for business. Taker asks is it bad for business if he’s gone or if HHH is gone? HHH says it’s just plain bad for business and that he is certain of one thing. Says Taker isn’t asking for redemption, he’s asking for an end. HHH says he would have to finish Taker and deep down that’s what Taker wants. Hunter says he won’t do it. Hunter goes to leave, but Taker says no matter what spin HHH puts on it, he’s still a coward. HHH back in, pissed. Says he is sick of the coward thing. HHH gets in Taker’s face, then smiles and says he knows what Taker’s trying to do and it won’t work. The answer is still no and leaves. Taker says he just figured it out. Says HHH can’t do what HBK could. Says HBK was always better than HHH. Hunter stops at top of ramp, back to ring. Takes his coat off. Takes tie off. Unbuttons shirt….heads back to ring. Gets in ring, gets in Taker’s face again, says this has nothing to do with HBK or who is better and that he can get the job done. Says the layers are gone and that’s he’s more certain than ever. HHH asks if he wants an end? Says YOU GOT IT! One more thing, we do this all the way. No return, no uncertainty. No excuses. One condition………. HELL IN A CELL! Taker leaves as WM theme song plays.
