    • Nash apologized for the actions perpetrated by the trio, and he asked the fans to forgive them.
    • Hall took the mic and wished The Rock a speedy recovery, and he hoped that he would be at 100 percent for WrestleMania X8.
    • Hall, still reading from the paper, said that, as human beings, they were very disappointed in themselves for what they had done on RAW.
    • He said they weren't apologizing because Mr. McMahon told them to - they were apologizing because they knew that what they did was wrong.
    • Hogan then grabbed the mic and thanked the district attorney's office for its acceptance of Mr. McMahon's attorney's suggestion for a lesser charge - even though The Rock had "assaulted me first."
    • Hogan also thanked Mr. McMahon's attorneys for arranging community service that they would perform in light of their actions.
    • He finally thanked Mr. McMahon for accepting their apology, and for his understanding, love and support.
