Maddox and Vickie in the ring.
Vickie – Welcome to Monday night RAW! I've been diligently working on MITB. Great names have been associated with the ladder in the WWE. HBK, Razor Ramon, Triple H! This ladder means something special to me, how I have climbed year after year with my career. (heat) if I fall, I'm holding all of you responsible.
Vickie climbs as the fans chant, "Fall! Fall! Fall!" vi sits at the top with Maddox holding one side of the ladder and a ref holding the other as if their lives depend on it. Maddox is replaced by a ref.
Vickie – There's no book that tells how a woman can be successful in male dominated companies like GE and WWE. No one ever held my hand and said Vickie, this is how you run a show of manage Superstars. I have done everything on my own, navigated every mine field to give the best shows. The WWE 'Universe' and I haven't seen eye to eye, but everything I've done is because of you.
King – Vickie, I've always wanted to say this. EXCUSE ME!! Vickie, in preparation of your job evaluation, the McMahon Family is taking in all factors, even the opinion of the WWE 'Universe'. We can grade Vickie's job on the WWE App. (It's pass or fail!)
Vickie – Thanks for that info. I think this is the perfect time to say the 'Universe' has been my family. We have good and bad day, but at the end, we all have each others back. That's why I know I'll have your support for the match I have for you tonight. Cena will stand face to face with Henry! Tonight I have scheduled matches with the All Star MITB. Christian faces Kane. Orton face Punk. Sheamus against Bryan! That match is right now!

Cena – We got a riled up crowd tonight! Hell, if I didn't know any better, I'd think MITB is tonight. Earlier Henry said to get out there because he has to talk to him. I'm here, we're just missing WSW! I'm right here.
Henry's music and out he comes. Henry walks to the ring as Cena paces inside.
Henry – You go the same look on your face as you did last week. The look of fear.
Cena – I'm not afraid of you.
Henry – You should be. For 17 years I've starved.
Cena – You brought be out here to talk about a damn Snicker's bar?
Henry – You know what, the old Henry would have laughed or did you some bodily harm. Instead, I'm gunna chill. You stand there and think you know who I am. I'm a new man. I known you for over ten years.
Henry - I knew who you was before you knew who you was.
Henry – You just like these people. You a puppet.
Henry – That Title will validate my career. If I take that from you, without a shadow of a doubt, I be a first ballot HOFer.
Henry – I sell out my own Mama for that.
Henry – I even sold out my family.
Cena – Well then Mark, you better win this Sunday. You better win at MITB. I've won and lost it, but with respect. I look in your eyes and I see the man who is desperate. He's leveraged his family, lied to these people all for leather and gold. You better walk out Champ Sunday, if you do, you deserve it. You don't any you've lost everything. The respect of these people, 17 years!
Henry – You think I care what you think? All these people think? I don't. Some of these people love you, some hate you.
Cena (shrugs) – Welcome to RAW!
Henry – Either way. You care. I don't. There's lines you won't cross because of your goodness.
Cena – How could you not care about this?
Henry – You interrupt me one more time, MITB will start tonight.
Cena – Okay, you want to talk about crossing lines, do ya? (off comes the belt and shirt) You want to start MITB early, do ya? (off comes the dog tags, and he draws a fake line with his toe) There's a line, cross it and I'll whip your ass right now.
Henry – You want me to cross the line? For free? It's MITB. I took a 50% pay cut before. I'm not losing money. You'll get me on Sunday.

Josh – You will be in the All Stars MITB, but tonight you're facing Punk, any thoughts?
Orton – Punk's always called himself the best in the world. Didn't believe it when I beat him two years ago at WrestleMania, and I don't tonight. After MITB, if Cena finds himself vulnerable like tonight, I won't hesitate to take it from him.

Axel – Jericho you say you're the best in the world at what you do. You wear a jacket with Christmas lights, but all I need is the shine of the IC Title to let the 'Universe' know Axel has arrived.

September 29, 2003 – RVD hits a 5 star frog splash off the top of the ladder on Christian, then wins the IC Title.
Josh – Are you concerned that you both being in MITBLM will effect your friendship?
Sandow – You're becoming quite the little journalist, aren't you? If, for some reason, I don't win the contract, I hope my partner wins it, and I'm sure he feels the same way about me.
Josh – Cody?
Sandow – I just told you what he thought.
Zeb – Pardon the interruption, hate to break up this love-fest, but I heard you talking about MITB, let me tell you something. If American's don't take charge of this country soon, our money's going to be worth nothing, and it doesn't take an intellectual guru, but you Cody should know that. Being the son of American Dream, you should know the nightmare this country goes through everyday. At MITB, we're going to own it. Two real Americans are in it....
Barrett – Ladies, please, the only person winning this Sunday is me.
Zeb – I didn't understand a word you said, are you speaking English, or what language?
Barrett – The Queen's English!
Everyone is arguing until Fandango steps in front of them all.
Cody – Don't say it.
Fandango – Fahn...
Barrett – Don'!
Fandango (trying not to laugh) – Fahn...
Zeb – Don't!
Fandango – Fahn-Dahn...
Barrett punches Fandango in the head. Everyone stands around and laughs as Fandango crawls away. Then they all stare and glare.
The reporter followed Harper into the house, and is told not to stray. Through the dark halls with 'Obey, obey, obey!' over and over. The reporter sees someone, but is told to come along. He's then handed off to Bray.
Sin Cara vs ADR

Ziggler comes out, distracts ADR. Sin Cara tries for a quick win, but can't get it.
Ziggler – I'm sort of sorry that I injured your ring announcer, so I'm going to do it the right way. Bear with me, it's my first time. A man who flaunts his massive wealth to make up for something not so massive. A coward who tried to end my career and in six days has no chance of walking out WHC. At MITB, let me introduce you to the looser of the match, Alberto Del....
ADR out and attacks Ziggler. Suddenly Sin Cara flies off the top, Ziggler side steps and ADR takes it all.

In Ring Segment
Vickie in the ring looking like she might barf as the fans are already trying to sing her out of the arena. Out comes McMahon, Steph and Trip, all to McMahon's music. They all get in the ring, and sit behind the desk set up for them.
Steph – Tonight we're here to evaluate your performance. I'd like to thank the 'Universe' for voting on the App. You opinion will be factored in tonight. Vickie, the floor is yours.
Vickie – Thank you for being out here tonight. I've always...
Steph – Vickie, could you please sit down. (Vickie backs into the stool she's been provided)
Vickie – I've always loved the McMahon Family. To all you out there, I have a special love for each of you. (heat) But, I would like to humbly state for the record I take pride in producing high entertainment. The night I exposed AJ. And big name Superstars have returned under me, like RVD, The Rock. Some say I even inspired Taker to return to WrestleMania.
Steph – Did Vickie just say she inspired Taker's return to WrestleMania? Vickie, it's amazing that you're taking credit for these people you had nothing to do with, but not even acknowledging the man that took out my father and my husband, Brock Lesnar.
Vickie – I did sign Brock, but...
Steph – Being in charge of RAW, you have to make tough decisions, you have to take responsibility for your actions. Do you think bringing back Brock was a good idea?
Vickie – Steph, I believe in what your Dad taught me, to do the right things for business. I did sign Brock, but I had no idea he'd attack you two. I apologize. I'm so sorry!
McMahon (stands to pop) – You have no reason to apologize, other than for what Brock did to me personally. I think bringing Brock back was a stroke of genius. As far as your qualifications, we all believe you're highly entertaining. You have made bone head decisions in past, but you did it for what you thought was quality, wholesome, family TV, right?
Vickie – That is so correct.
Trip – Can I just say something here for a second? I will be the first to admit that Vickie can occasionally be unintentionally entertaining. Let's face facts, she's terrible at her job. No, yeah, you're rotten! Let's look at a couple weeks ago, you were supposed to promote the new video game. You screwed up the whole thing. Second of all, we couldn't head a damn thing you said because the 'Universe' was booing you out of the building. (huge heat) And not in a good way Vickie. This happens each week, and it's bad for business. I know, Vince, you think it's entertaining, but if for a second we can put aside what you think is entertaining, because there's a reason The Golden Girls are not on TV anymore. Let's talk to the WWE 'Universe'. The 'Universe' wants and deserves better than Vickie Guerrero. Now, I will say this though, because she's not without good qualities. Vickie, you do possess the most annoying voice in broadcast TV.
McMahon – Hang on there. You do have a unique voice Vickie. I believe you have qualifications no one else does. I'd like to congratulate you on your hard work and passion, who you are, and you've broken through the male dominated corporate structure. I admire you. Unlike some other short sighted individuals in this ring, I think Vickie should be named Permanent RAW GM.
Trip – If I could just speak for the obviously short sighted side of the table for a second. I don't want to argue about this, at the end of the day I'm CCO, you're Chairman, which basically means that no matter what we say, you're going to do whatever the hell you want to do anyway. Right? Which is pretty much the whole point of this, to put some spineless person in the position of power than basically sits here and strokes your ego, kisses your ass, and does whatever you say they should do. Now, I don't want to believe that's the case, and if that's not the case, since Steph called this meeting, let's let her decide Vickie's fate.
Steph looks about to kill Trip.
McMahon – I have no problem with my daughter, Daddy's little girl, making the right entertaining decision.
Trip – I don't have a problem with my wife, the mother of my children, and the woman who's going to have to go home and put up with me after this, making what I know will be the right decision for business.
McMahon – That would be the business of entertainment.
Trip – But, mostly business.
Steph – It seems as though this job evaluation has escalated a lot further than any of us imagined. And I'm not going to let any one or anything drive a wedge in my family, so we will let the WWE App decide. Did Vickie pass or fail?
A) Pass 25%
B) Fail 75%
The fans go wild!
Steph – Vickie, the 'Universe' has spoken. You've failed.
Vickie – Steph, if I have learned anything from your Dad, it's that you can't trust these people making decisions for the business! (slams her hand on the desk) And I'm not a spineless puppet! They boo me because they love me, that comes with respect! And I am not going to let some popularity contest let Booker T and Teddy Long run Smackdown. This is not right! This is not right.
Steph – Vickie, I've got two words for you... In the immortal words of my father, YOU'RE FIRED!
Vickie drops to her knees. Maddox tries to get her up as the fans start singing her out. Vickie flails around on the mat screaming. Vickie on her knee, begging for her job!
"No more Vickie!"
Vickie up on the desk, on her knees, screaming at Steph and Trip!
Vickie – You put me in charge! I gave you years of service! You did this to me!
McMahon (to the fans) – Are you happy?
The fans are very happy.
McMahon – What's the matter with you? You've broken Vickie Guerrero's heart. Don't turn into animals. Vickie didn't fail, you know who failed? Each of you failed. You threw away the most entertaining RAW GM of all time. You all failed. You have no idea what the right decision is, and I'm going to make it for you. You deserve this. The new RAW GM, Brad Maddox!
McMahon gets Vickie off the table and from the ring as Maddox stands in the ring looking like a very shocked Dr. Who wannabe. McMahon, an arm around Vickie, his jacket over her shoulders, leads her away. Maddox follows them up the ramp looking like he doesn't know what just happened.
October 7, 2002 RVD and Jeff Hardy – RVD goes border to border as Hardy holds the chair in front of Kane's face!
Vickie – I love my job.
McMahon – I'm going to make it right somehow Vickie. I'll make it right.
Maddox – I'm so sorry about what happened. Mr. McMahon, this is decision you won't forget. We'll all miss Vickie, but I'm happy to be the GM of RAW. Vickie, I'll pick up where you left off. (Maddox extends a hand)
McMahon – Like I said, I gave them what they deserve. How long you going to leave your hand out like that?
Maddox – What Mr. McMahon wants, Mr. McMahon gets...
Vickie attacks Maddox with slaps and blows, screaming the whole time. She screams at him to get out!
McMahon – Vickie, you ruined my jacket!
Vickie crumbles to the floor by herself.

Bray - I don't have followers, only brothers and sisters in the cause. People are sheep and need to be led. I'm not afraid of war, it's time for the masses to wake up! The world is deteriorating under their toes. I understand, this is not the beginning, it's the end.
Bray lights an oil lamp and simply says, 'We're here.'
In Ring Segment

Josh – You will be in MITB All Stars, including Orton. Later you face Orton. Earlier we spoke to Orton and he was confident of his chances.
Punk – Randy doesn't lack confidence. I hear he doesn't think I'm best in the world. He's allowed to his opinions, but not entitled to facts. Am I best in the world because I held the Title for 434 days, or did I hold the Title for 434 because I'm best in the world? I don't know, what I do know is holding the Title longer than anyone in the modern era makes me the best in the world. Beating Orton tonight makes me the best in the world. And Sunday, winning MITB for an unprecedented 3rd time, that makes me the best in the world.
