Recap of Orton spitting in HHH’s face.
No intro this week, as Evolution’s music plays.
Triple H, Flair, & Batista come down. HHH says that this is Evolution, and the reason why they are is because of all the work he did. He picked Flair up, and taught him how to be The Nature Boy again. He took Batista, with so much raw power, and gave him the direction. He took Orton, who was supposed to be his successor when he was done, and Orton spit in his face. He tells Orton that he is not done yet. He brought Orton in, and he can take him out. He tells Orton to come out and face his consequences like a man. New Orton music plays, some random guys bring out large covered photos. Orton says that he was hand picked by HHH, but he wants to make sure HHH knows that HHH didn’t exactly lose in this deal. He then pulls the curtain on the first photo, showing Evolution together, with HHH right in the middle. And that all Evo did was provide protection for HHH, and maybe Batista and Flair will figure that out one day. HHH says that Evo is about him, because he started it! Orton then goes on to say that he defeated Benoit all by himself, revealing another photo, without Evolution’s help, something that HHH was never able to do. He then shows the last photo of him spitting in HHH’s face. He says that now that he has his history in check, he will go on down to face HHH like a man, but he is bringing his new friend. He goes behind the last photo, and takes out a Sledgehammer. He makes is way down to the ring, and chases Evo to the floor. He then corners HHH near the steps, and takes a swing, but hits the steps, as HHH runs away through the crowd.

Joy goes first, and she just teases Amy and Christy, but rains down fury on Carmella, saying that she knows SHIT about wrestling. Amy then goes, and teases Joy and Christy a bit, then let’s Carmella have it, telling her she doesn’t give a SHIT about wrestling. Carmella then gets to lash out, but really doesn’t have much to say, except that if she doesn’t win, she hopes that Christy wins.

So, since Matt is laying up in the hospital, KANE went out and got some others from the Hardy family, and he introduces The Hardy Boyz. 4 Indy guys come on down, and KANE introduces them as Pat, Nat, Rat, and Fat Hardy, and he then defeats them all in a 4 against 1 match. KANE goes to ignite his fire, but Lita comes in and says that since she is KANE’s property, he is also hers. And since they are a union of 2 people, the open contract gift from Bischoff was to the both of them. So, she filled in his opponent for Unforgiven, and it will be Shawn Michaels. KANE is not too pleased.
