Are You Ready!
DX is out to kick off the show. Triple H has brought some of those glow sticks with him. OK this is officially cool again. Trips throws the sticks out to the crowd. Michaels tires himself out running around in circles. “DX!” â<80>” LA. For one night only, but are you ready? No, he said, AREâ<80>¦ YOUâ<80>¦ READY! There’s a resound “yes.” For the thousands in attendance and millions watching around the worldâ<80>¦
Hornswoggle’s music plays and he comes out from under the ring. He chases Shawn around the ring and trips. He points to his green jacket. Triple H says he needs to go back under the ring. He doesn’t think he understands. Shawn looks for a run sheet but can’t find it because of all the merchandise, AVAILABLE ON WWE SHOP!
They have the run sheet. Segment 1 -9 o’clock (East Coast Time!). No Hornswoggle in it. Hornswoggle is due in the short segment. Michaels laughs so Hornswoggle locks in a short arm scissors. Shawn makes a judgment call â<80>” for tonight, he’s in!
Triple H tries to get him to go back under. Hornswoggle says there’s a monster. Shawn checks. We’re all clear. But Shawn gets dragged under. He comes back out and has worms in his mouth.
“I’m the Boogeyman, and I’m coming to getcha!” Boogeyman is here. He was under the ring. Hornswoggle hides behind DX. Triple H â<80>” “OK! Yes that is a midget between my legs!” He’s the Boogeyman and he’s coming to see if he can join DX! Glorious! Shawn makes an executive decision â<80>” he’s in. You can only have enough worms, freaks and weirdos!
The Great Khali is here. Shawn knows where Trips is gonna go. He doesn’t want to be turned into a human slim jim. Triple H tells him to get to the back of the queue so he does!
Coach is here! Enough is enough (and it’s time for a change)? He’s shutting this nonsense down. These people came to see action, not DX antics. Triple H says he’ll tell the translator to tell Khali what Coach said about him earlier. Triple H whispers in his ear. “Ask Shawn, you know Shawn can’t lie!”
He translates it for Khali. Coach says they’re lying and gets chopped! Khali follows Coach up the ramp. The ring is cleared. Shawn says he’s getting old. Shawn â<80>” “I don’t know who writes this crap, but this is the worst debalicle since that Katie Vick thing!” Trips says no-one writes this crap because they’re all on strike!
Let’s get ready to suck it! And if you’re not down with that, we’ve got two words for ya!
