IN THE RING
Wade Barrett + NXT Rookies + RAW General Manager Bret “The Hitman” Hart: Wade introduced himself for those who didn’t know him. Wade said the GM of RAW demanded he come into the ring and apologize for his actions last week. Wade said he wanted to invited the rest of the NXT rookies down to the ring. The NXT Rookies came in through the crowd, except for the released Daniel Bryan. The commentators and time keeper and everyone else around the ring left through the audience. Wade asked Heath to apologize and he said absolutely not. Heath said he would do it again in a heart beat. Justin said he wouldn’t apologize and that he still has goosebumps from last week. Skip Sheffield said no apologies, no regrets. Michael Tarver said the look of fear on everyone’s face lived on the sweetest of all of his dreams, why should he apologize when no one can make him. Darren Young said he had the time of his life last week. David Otunga said after the way they were treated WWE should apologize to them. Wade said it was unanimous. Wade said the problem with NXT was they were treated like animals and when you treat people with animals sooner or later they behave like animals. Wade said they were made to change in a broom cupboard like locker room, they competed in ridiculous challenges, they were at the mercy of over zealous WWE pros, and worst of all they had WWE management who saw fit to change rules at a moments notice, who eliminated them on a whim, and tried to make an international joke out of all of them. Wade said jokes were meant to be funny but no one laughed after RAW last week because they destroyed the ring, beat up the WWE champion, and impressed everybody who was watching them. Bret “The Hitman” Hart came out. Bret said they looked proud of themselves, but back where he’s from 8 on 1 makes you cowards. Bret said they attacked John Cena, the SES, the security, the ring announcer, the time keeper, and they manhandled a hall of famer. Wade said that was funny because they used to have Daniel Bryan, Daniel had some remorse and you will never ever see him here again. Bret said despite everything John Cena will be at Fatal 4 Way next Sunday. Wade said this has nothing to do with John Cena or the fans, it’s between them and WWE management. Wade said besides a few NXT pros, they don’t have a problem with anyone in the WWE locker room. Wade said they could stay there all night arguing but he thinks they should get down to business. Wade said he has a contract and title opportunity but the group behind him has some demands of their own. David said they all want guaranteed contracts, dressing rooms, and first class travel accommodations. David said if Bret failed to comply, then last week was just the beginning. Wade said before Bret answered, 2 weeks ago Vince informed him he would have difficult decisions as GM. Wade said this decision is easy, the group of men he has with him are well condition athletes who could be the future with a contract. Bret said it is his job to find new fresh talent, but his answer is no. Wade told Bret he was making a big mistake. Bret said Wade’s the one making the mistakes. Bret said the truth is on account of Wade’s actions, he’s not the next breakout star anymore. Bret said Wade isn’t getting a title shot anymore because he’s fired. Bret told them to get the hell out of the ring before he calls the police for trespassing.

IN THE RING

John said after last week he thinks his best interest is to stand in that ring and handle things the only way he knows how. John thanked Bret for not caving into those ridiculous demands by the radicals. John said there’s a portion of him that admires what they did last week because desperate times call for desperate members and the NXT guys were desperate. John said the plan was almost brilliant but their genius was blinded by their ignorance. John said they had a problem with WWE management and they solved it by taking away RAW from the fans. John said they made 5 million more enemies and destroyed the ring so now the superstars want their head on a plate. John said Wade getting fired will not fix the problem.
