Seth- Yeah Brock Lesnar, I meant to apologize about that. What happened afterwards, it was the heat of the moment--*Kane interrupts*
Kane- I don't hold it against you Seth, in fact I would have done the same. My ankle is healed up, I've got my contract as Director of Operations and I'm back at work! Didn't you get the email?

Triple H- What? What are you talking about?
Seth- Kane, the freak that tried to end my career last night. He's in your office, he's in his cheap suit, he's drinking coffee from a stupid mug. He invoked my rematch clause with John Cena tonight, you saw what I went through last night, I'm not in any condition for that match. You guys have got to talk to him!
Triple H- Calm down, calm down. If what you're saying is true, and you have a match with Cena, you have a chance to get back your US championship. You should just focus on that.

WOO!! Ric flair makes his way to the ring for Charlotte's championship celebration.
Ric- Do I look like a happy father, like a proud father? Has Natch had fun in Laredo before? There are times in a man's life that are so special *thank you Ric chants* No thank you. Thank you, thank you. There are times in a man's life that things are so special and you don't know what to say. The first time you walk down that ramp, the first time you stare at 10,000 people. Then the first time you win your championship, once, twice, three times, four times. You fall in love, once, twice, maybe three times, maybe four times. God only knows a couple of those were a mistake. Make no mistake the proudest moments in my entire life was not when I won my first title, or my retirement match with Shawn Michaels. It was when my little girl won her first championship. And guys, she didn't get it from me. She didn't get any help from me, she worked hard for it. She beat a heck of a champion in Nikki Bella. My daughter, Charlotte!
Team PCB makes their way to the ring.
Charlotte and Ric- WOO!
Charlotte- I have to compose myself, my dad and I tend to cry when we're in the ring together. Dad, since I was a little girl I remember sitting where all of these people sat, and thinking I want to be like you. And if I can make you half as proud of me as I am of you then I know I've done a good job of being your daughter. I love you VERY much dad. *Big hug* I'm not gonna cry ok! I promise! PCB! You know since the Diva Revolution started, teaming with you two day after day, week after week, has been a dream since day one. Since I started all I wanted to do was compete and win the Divas championship. But in the process I got two best friends. Becks my protein sister, woman you make me smile every day, you remind me that life is short and not to be so serious all the time, so thank you. Paige, we started at NXT together, you were the first NXT women's champion. I have followed in your footsteps ever since then. I wanted to be where you were and I'm here today because I followed you, and wanted to be like you.
*Paige grabs the mic* Paige- Charlotte you are so nice, this is all so nice! You won the championship yesterday, and this whole celebration is for Charlotte. But let's just think about who really made this all possible and that's ME! No shut up Becky! This is patronizing, and I love you Daddy, and I wouldn't be here without out you! You sound like you just got inducted into the bloody Hall of Fame, you won the championship? So what I won it on my first day! I won it twice, and you know what, here's a little secret, champ to champ. Nikki Bella is going to get a rematch, and she's going to bring her little hippie sister and her third wheel and she's going to win it back and the Diva's division is going to go right back to the way it was! There is no revolution Charlotte! You are just a place holder! Becky back off! You're never going to be a Divas Champ Becky, you're the least relevant of all of us! Let's go to Team BAD! They're all flash! No substance, then you've Lana and Summer, to bitches trying to decide who to climb onto next rather than the Divas division! And then you got Natty, Natty where are you?! Do you even work here anymore?! Where are you Mrs. Hart?! Then you've got the Bellas, we all know the REAL reason they got to where they are. You all know the real reason. I am not done! Stop trying to act like you're somebody, you wouldn't be here if it wasn't for your old man. Woo! *Becky holds back Charlotte and Paige drops the mic and walks away*
Team Bella makes their way onto the stage.
Nikki- Where did Paige go, cause I wanted to tell her she got "Hard work and dedication" wrong, but I guess that's to be expected from a classless, trashy woman. Um, oh Charlotte, poor poor Charlotte. Welcome to my world, when you succeed and get on top and everyone targets you. Clearly Paige couldn't handle it. I handled it for nearly a year, but that's because I'm woman enough. And Charlotte do you think this gets any easier? Do you? Because you know it doesn't. It starts tonight, when you lose to my sister. Oh and one more thing, you're going to lose when I get my rematch for the Divas Championship soon. So champ you better prove yourself, good luck.

Steph- Hey Kane! Such a great surprise to see you here tonight!
Trips- You feel good?
Kane- Yeah! Leg is all healed up, even better to be back at work!
Trips- So about being back at work.
Kane- Is there something wrong? Are you guys upset about the Cena and Seth rematch tonight? I know it's a big move but I really wanted to make a big impact my first night back!
Trips- No that's great and all, big match! It's just that we haven't heard from you since you got hurt, then you just showed up last night and...
Kane- Last night, what are you talking about?
Steph- Ok listen Kane, you want revenge on Seth for what he did to you for months. We get it, we totally understand. If you wanna play mind games with Seth, we understand. But don't insult our intelligence.
Kane- I would never do that, that's why I signed a contract as Director of Operations. I plan on fulfilling that contract, and I know that you guys want the same.
Trips- Alright look--
Steph- Hey, I think there is a way for all three of us to get on the same page. Ok? Let's let the past be in the past, we can all move on. i just need one thing, I need you to give it back. *puts out her hand*
Kane- *high fives her and give the thumbs up*
Steph- Kane I don't need you to give me five, I need you to give me your mask back.
Kane- What mask?
Steph- Your mask. Your mask Kane the one that was in the case, YOUR mask.
Kane- Oh gosh it's missing! Steph, the last time I saw that mask I gave it to you. If you lost it...I could see where you'd have a very BIG problem....but! I'll be happy to help you guys look for it! If I see it I'll let you know.
Paige is backstage pacing.
Paige- Oh you do still work here? *Natalya walks up* Let me guess you're going to lecture me on all the things I did wrong out there.
Natty- No actually I think you had a lot of valid points. I do. But do you think you're the only diva that's only been frustrated? Left out? I get it, I get it. But how you acted was really unprofessional. Let me talk! That was Charlotte's moment. You won the title on your first night, imagine if someone you looked up to did that to you. I still work here and I have a match tonight, against Naomi. I'm going to go prepare for that, but as a friend I want to tell you that the only person standing in your way is you.
