RAW this week starts with Y2J’s music. He comes out in full suit and tie. King and Cole talk about Y2J’s controversial moment last night at SS.
He gets in the ring and glares around at the fan who are giving him huge heat. He says he’s not there to apologize. HBK’s the one responsible for what happened to HBK’s wife. He says he didn’t put her in harm’s way. He did, and here’s the proof. Video from SS. HBK says he’s done due to many injuries, but Y2J wants HBK to admit that he put HBK out of the WWE. Y2J tries to hit HBK who ducks. His wife gets hit instead. HBK tends to his wife while Y2J leaves the ring area.
Huge heat on Y2J. “You suck” chants fill the arena. USA blinked out for a moment. Y2J stands in the ring taking the abuse as it goes on and on. Finally he says HBK knew exactly what he was doing in the ring last night. He knew he was leaving. Instead of leaving by video or letter he had to go out and placate his ego one more time, watch as everyone begged him not to leave. It’s the fans fault for what happened to HBK’s wife too. All HBK had to do was look him in the eye and admit Y2J ended his career, do the classy and right thing. HBK’s career is over. All his names and accolades. But his last time in the ring was spent cradling his wife. Him and his family will have to live with it the rest of his life. “HBK” chants. HBK, you had it coming. Y2J leaves the ring to huge heat. He walks up the ramp and doesn’t even look at the fans as he leaves.

Kane’s fire and new music. It’s organ music not his old music we all know and love. Video of Kane and Adamle last week when Kane pulled out Rey’s mask from his sack.
He says it looked like the fans were all shocked when he pulled out Rey’s mask. He’s been carrying it around because it made him feel good and comforted him. It even put a smile on his face. Rey hasn’t been seen for about six weeks. There’s a reason for that. He never liked Rey. He doesn’t like him and doesn’t like people who do. He’s a slithering little slime who hides behind a mask. He’s like a fungus that grows in the marshes of your psyche. Six weeks ago in a parking lot he destroyed Rey, but spared his life. His spirit is broken… dead. “Is he alive, or is he dead?” Kane laughs maniacally.
