Back from the break and out comes Rusev and Lana to the ring. Lana says today is a great day because it’s the birthday of the most powerful man in the world, Russian President Vladimir Putin, who we see on the big screen. Fans boo him. Lana tells fans to rise and pay respect to Rusev. Nobody stands but they boo. Lana says there will be no match with Big Show because Show was suspended for desecrating the Russian flag. She says Show should be in prison, like all of the fans. She says fans have committed a hate crime by supporting Show. A big USA chant breaks out. Lana tells everyone to shut up. Lana calls everyone bigots. Rusev speaks and says what he will do to Big Show but we can’t understand him and he gets the “what?” treatment. Rusev says America is no super power, America is nothing. Rusev calls Show to the ring. Rusev waits on Show and calls him a coward, just like all of the fans. The Rock’s music hits and out he comes to a huge pop.
Rock takes it all in for a few minutes on the stage before heading to the ring and posing. The music stops and Rock laughs as fans start a “holy shit” chant. Fans chant “this is awesome” and Rock hasn’t even spoke yet. Rock says Lana and Rusev need to know their role and shut their mouth. Rock picks on how Rusev wears his shorts and says he has a Moscow moose knuckle. Rock says he woke up, worked out and flew to The Big Apple, getting another pop. Fans chant “Rocky” now. Rock talks about landing in NYC today and says he visited the Meat Packing District, Lana’s favorite area of the city. Rock says he paid respect to The Captain and gets a “Derek Jeter” chant going. Rock does the “finally…” promo and gets another big pop. Lana asks Rock who he thinks he is. Fans boo.
Lana tells Rock to shut up. Rock tells her to stop dressing like a Soviet street walker. Rusev approaches Rock now. Fans boo as Rusev takes the mic. He calls Rock an American piece of garbage. Rusev says this is Rock’s last warning… leave now or get crushed. Rock mocks Rusev and his breath. Rock says Lana is beautiful in person but walks around like someone shoved a Smirnoff bottle in her Putin. Rock does the “it doesn’t matter” line on Rusev. Rock says there’s a reason why nobody has been able to beat Rusev – he’s bigger, stronger, more dangerous than most in the back. Rock calls them both international assholes. Lana says Rusev is hungry and Rusev readies for a fight. Rock says just like the great Jay-Z once said, “allow me to re-introduce myself…” Rock introduces himself like only he can and unloads on Rusev with right hands. The crowd goes nuts. Rock sends Rusev over the top rope. Rock does the “if ya smell…” line and his music hits. Lana and Rusev make their exit as Rock celebrates. We go to the announcers and see Rock going around ringside and greeting fans. He greets the announcers as well. Rock hops into the crowd and hugs two fans in wheelchairs. He goes back over and greets more fans at ringside as his music plays.
