Jerry Lawler makes his way to the ring and he says that he doesn’t want to take too much time but he wants to say that finally the long national nightmare is over and Michael Cole has been beaten. Jerry says that he knew that Cole would have a plan to weasel out of kissing his foot so he had an ace up his sleeve. He says that he had a Hart up his sleeve.
Jerry brings out Bret Hart. Bret says hello to the people of Portland. He says that it always makes him happy to be back on Raw. He says that over the years Jerry and him have had their differences but when they fought, he always respected Lawler for the type of competitor he was. Hart says that he has zero respect for Michael Cole. He says that it was his pleasure to make sure that Cole suffered the agony of ‘De-Feet’.
R Truth interrupts Bret and he tells people not to boo him because it is Hitman Hart. Truth says that it is an honor. He says that he cannot believe his eyes. He asks Bret how many times he has been champion. Truth tells Bret not to listen to the fans because they don’t have any sense or home training. Truth wants Bret to guess how many title matches he has been in and Truth answers for him. That number is zero. Truth says that is because Truth didn’t care about the Little Jimmys like Bret did. Maybe it is because Truth never gave them anything. Truth wants Bret to help him help himself. Truth takes Bret’s sunglasses and he wants to perform a little experiment and he looks for a Little Jimmy. Truth says that he is good Truth now as he puts the glasses on Little Jimmy. Truth says that should mean that he is next in line for a WWE Title shot.
Truth says that he isn’t next in line. Truth says that he used to think that wins and losses didn’t matter as long as you gave the people what they wanted. That hasn’t meant diddly squat. He took care of Morrison and Rey. That means that he thinks that actions speak louder than words. Truth suggests that maybe he take care of a Hall of Famer to get a shot.
Bret tells Truth to take a shot at him, but he got his title matches because he was the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be. Bret calls Truth a lunatic and says that is why he hasn’t gotten a title match.
John Cena’s music plays and he comes out to the ring. He tells Truth to hold on and asks him to come back to the ring. Cena tells Truth that it is time that they have a little talk. Cena says that he is a little bit beaten up but he is glad to see Bret Hart back in a WWE ring.

Cena says that he has had his hands full with the Miz and he wants to know where Truth went crazy. Cena says that he wants to know what’s up. Cena says that they used to be cool with each other and Truth starts rhyming and says that Cena doesn’t know anything about him.
Truth says that the conspiracy that he has been talking about is about John Cena. The people make sure that it is all about John Cena.
Cena says that he makes sure that it is all about these people.
Truth wants to know why people want the new John Cena merchandise. Truth says that he wants his son back.
Truth tells Cena that the truth is that he never liked Cena. Cena and Hart are the same. They are a propaganda tool to make everyone feel good. Truth says that he doesn’t care about the people or how they feel. Truth says that it is all about him. He says that he won’t feel right until he gets his title match.
Cena wants to knock some sense into him but we get a dingy dingy sound.
