Vince McMahon & Charlie Haas (special guest) + Maria Kanellis + Mae Young: Vince McMahon introduced Charlie Haas and the crowd booed him mercifully – Vince remarked, “hold your applause please.” Vince dailed another phone number and screwed it up, so Vince said Charlie was bad luck. Vince dialed again and screwed it up, but tried again – third time’s a charm! The third time he got a busy signal. Gotta love live television. Vince said “whoever that is, sorry your grandmother just cost you a lot of money.” Vince called for another number and dialed, and it RANG! Donna Rose from Michigan answered and gave the correct password to win $50,000 !!! Vince said if Charlie Haas kissed a Diva then he would give Donna $100,000. Maria Kanellis came out and Charlie jumped at the chance to kiss her. Okay Vince you have to mess with Haas’ marriage for ratings?

BACKSTAGE PROMO
John Bradshaw Layfield: JBL said none of the fans deserve any money, but he is going to give John Cena exactly what he deserves.

SUPER GRUDGE MATCH
John Cena defeated John Bradshaw Layfield: Triple H joined Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler on commentary for this match. Mid-way through the match, JBL fell out of the ring and had an unprovoked visual confrontation with Triple H. JBL continued the match with John Cena, but seemed preoccupied with Triple H throughout. JBL focused on Triple H too much, and ended up getting rolled up by John Cena! After the match, Triple H got up on the announce table with his belt and he was soon joined by John Cena. John Cena trash-talked Triple H. Triple H jumped down off the announce table, but then scooped Cena’s legs out from under him and then took off with his belt.

MILLION DOLLAR MANIA ($98,000 GIVE-AWAY)
Vince McMahon & Lilian Garcia: Vince McMahon said Lilian Garcia‘s measurements were 38-24-36 – and the total of that is 98, so let’s give away $98,000. Vince dialed the number and screwed it up of course. Vince dialed again and Stephanie supplied the correct password to win $98,000 !!! Jerry Lawler asked, “that wasn’t his daughter, Stephanie, was it?”

IN THE RING (THE HIGHLIGHT REEL)
Chris Jericho + Shawn Michaels: Chris Jericho said his guest tonight was a hero of his and has become somewhat of a mentor to him recently. Shawn Michaels limped out, selling injuries from his Stretcher match with Batista at One Night Stand. Jericho got on Michaels’ case about lieing to everybody about his knee injury. Michaels said he said he would do whatever it took to win the match, and technically only lied to Jericho. Jericho said the fans would rather boo an honest man and cheer for someone like Shawn Michaels. HBK! HBK! HBK! Jericho asked “How does Shawn Michaels turn into such a lieing cheating pathetic little worm of a human being?” Jericho suddenly, without warning, attacked Michaels and they had a long intense brawl until Jericho kicked Michaels between the legs! Jericho (officially heel) told Michaels “the worst is yet to come,” before ramming Michaels head-first into the Jeritron 3000 television screen! Somewhat reminiscent of Michaels throwing Marty Jannetty through the barber shop window fifteen years ago!

NON (WORLD TAG TEAM) TITLE MATCH
Umaga & Gene Snitsky defeated World Tag Team champions Hardcore Holly & Cody Rhodes: Shocker. After the match, Ted DiBiase Jr. came out to the stage and pointed out that Rhodes and Holly aren’t on the same page.

DiBiase Jr. said in two weeks there will be new World Tag Team champions – “and that moment will be just like me…. SIMPLY PRICELESS!”
