Mick Foley walks in the back as we go to commercial.

We are back and as a result of what happened earlier, Roman Reigns will face Braun Strowman next week on Raw.

Stephanie McMahon is in the ring.  She says she gave the chance to Mick Foley to prove that he can make the tough decisions.  She brings out the man who will fire someone on Raw, Mick Foley.

Stephanie wants to know who is Mick going to fire.

Mick says that when Stephanie handed him this assignment he thought it was difficult because there was no one who should be fired.  He says about ten minutes ago the name popped into his head.  This decision made him a better General Manager and Raw will be better.

Mick says the name that he came up with is Stephanie McMahon.

Stephanie says it is not in Mick's power to do that.  She wants a name right now.

Mick says that Stephanie is the only one who deserves to go. You treat the superstars like jokes and chattel.  Those people are human beings.  Mick says he valued their friendship of 18 years.  Mick says that Stephanie told him six months ago that she had nothing to do with what Triple H did.  He says he is looking in the eyes of a really good liar and a bad person.  Mick says it was you and your husband in collusion.  Triple H is not a creator of WWE Stars, he is a creator of his own army.

Stephanie says that Mick is pathetic and weak.  

Mick says he will not be silenced.

Triple H's music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

Hunter tells Mick if he has something to say to say it to his face.

Mick says he did not think Hunter was real.

Hunter wonders how people cannot find him.  Hunter says he has a business sense because he does not want a lawsuit three weeks before Wrestlemania.  That is why he won't rip off Mick's leg and attack him with it.

Mick asks if Hunter will do it or will he get Samoa Joe to do it.

Hunter mocks the Mick Foley Cheap Pop.  He says he never would have brought Mick back.  He worked so hard to create the future so he did not have to look at so many has beens like you.  Hunter says Stephanie has a big heart and you amuse Stephanie.  Stephanie likes Mick and he tells Mick to mistake Stephanie's heart for what she can do.  Stephanie is the business woman that Vince taught her to be.  You are about to go around the world telling stories about the man you used to be.

Mick says he has the respect of the Raw superstars and he says they like and envy him.  Mick says he does not have to pretend to like Triple H.  He does not need Hunter or this company.  You may think he is a pathetic guy with a missing ear and missing teeth.  

Hunter says that this works for Mick, but does he wonder how will his kids feel about that.  Hunter mentions Noelle and Dewey and how she wants to be a wrestler and he works in the office.  Maybe Mick will drive Dewey to the unemployment office.

Hunter asks Mick if that strikes a chord.  Hunter tells Mick that he needs to tuck his tail between his legs and waddle up that ramp.  You need to have an epiphany where you love and need your job.  When you run into Stephanie and she tells you to jump, you ask how high.

Hunter tells Mick to get up that ramp.

Stephanie tells everyone that this is a lesson to all of you. 

Mick has not left the ring and Hunter tells him to leave.  Mick with the Mandible Claw to Hunter.

Stephanie with a low blow to Mick.

Hunter takes off his jacket and he rolls up his sleeves as he prepares to attack Foley.

Seth Rollins comes out and he has his knee still in a brace and he has his crutch with him.  

Hunter wants Rollins to get into the ring and Seth drops the crutch because it is time to see the fully operational Seth Rollins.

Hunter and Rollins with punches and Seth with the advantage.  Rollins with a thrust kick and then he points at the Wrestlemania sign and hits a running boot to the head and Hunter goes to the floor.

Hunter picks up the crutch and he goes into the ring but Rollins with punches.  Hunter hits Rollins in the knee with the crutch and then he swings at the knee and connects.

Hunter takes off his shirt and he kicks Rollins in the knee and then he applies an Indian Death Lock.

Officials come to the ring and hold their arms out and try to convince Hunter to stop his attack.  Hunter hits Seth in the knee one more time with the crutch.

We go to credits.
