We start off tonight’s show with photos of what happened during the main event. What will happen when they bring talkies to us in a moment?
We are live from San Diego, California and your announcers are Michael ‘Simon and Simon’ Cole, Jerry ‘Coleman’ Lawler, and Jim ‘BBQ Tacos’ Ross.
What better person to deal with the WWE Title picture than the man who started things rolling with his missed call of John Cena’s foot on the rope, the WWE COO Triple H. He says that there are some people who are upset with what happened last night.
Hunter says that he wants to apologize to the WWE Universe and to John Cena. Hunter says that he made a mistake. He says that he watched the footage and John Cena’s foot was on the bottom rope. Hunter says that he is going to tell Cena that he is sorry when he meets Cena face to face. Hunter says that they had a hell of a match and if he didn’t screw it up, he didn’t know who would win. Hunter says that he had no trouble raising the hand of the new Undisputed WWE Champion CM Punk.
As for what happened after the match, a lot of people are speculating about his involvement. Hunter says that he had nothing to do with it. He says that he is friends with Kevin Nash. He said that Nash called him for a few tickets to SummerSlam. He did not know that Nash was going to jump the rail and attack CM Punk. Hunter says that he invited Kevin Nash to come tonight to explain himself. As long as he could tell the truth, Nash will be here.
As far as Alberto Del Rio cashing in Money in the Bank, he did not know anything about that. That is just the way that Money in the Bank works. Hunter says that he promised when SummerSlam was over and they came to San Diego, there would no longer be two champions and there would be only one Undisputed WWE Champion. Hunter brings out that man.
Alberto makes his way to the ring, at least we think it is him because Ricardo did not introduce him. Alberto tells us who he is, but we already knew that and he says that he is the Undisputed WWE Champion. Alberto says that he has been saying for weeks and weeks that it was his destiny to become WWE Champion. Alberto says that he is going to be honest for everyone because he loves them.
It was not his intention to cash in his money in the bank at SummerSlam. Destiny do whatever he wants. After what Kevin Nash did, he couldn’t resist. Some people just are born to be great. Alberto says that he is the greatest of the great. The Undisputed WWE Champion.
Alberto says that as their champion, he wants to represent everyone with respect, honesty, and passion. He just wants to be their champion. Alberto says that he will be in the lobby signing autographs for everyone. He will take pictures with everyone’s kids. That is the kind of champion he wants to be. A champion for his people. Tonight, for his first title defense, he is going to face the former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio. He says that we should cheer Rey because when he was told that his first title defense was going to be against Rey. Everyone loves Rey Mysterio. Alberto says that Rey is a Mexican icon, a gran luchador.
He says that he loves Rey Mysterio. He says that he loves Rey and he loves beating Rey Mysterio. He started his WWE career defeating Rey Mysterio. Every time he wakes up in the morning, he thinks what will he do today. He says that he feels like beating Rey Mysterio today. That is exactly what he is going to do tonight in San Diego.
He tells everyone to change their area code because they will have a new hero. A true hero, Alberto Del Rio.
Nash wants to know if Punk wants to see the text message on his phone and Punk asks Nash if he wants to see a text from Punk’s sister and it wondered if Nash was dead. Punk says that Nash’s career is dead. Punk says that he is pissed off last night. Punk says that he is pissed at a lot of people, but Alberto Del Rio is not one of those people. Nash is a sign of what it is like to have Triple H in control. He is bringing back his cronies.
