Triple H head to the ring. H says that the Age of Orton is officially broken. He says that Randy Orton is lying brused and broken in the hospital, but he's hurt too but it's better because he has the Title. H says Orton is out of the way and he doesn't care who's next…John Cena's music hits and he's headed to the ring. Cena says that the future is now and that they see eye to eye about a lot of things, except the WWE Championship. Cena says that H has beaten everyone except for him and with the draft coming it may never happen again and asks if H is ready to fight. Then Jeff Hardy crashes the fun. Jeff says he deserves a shot as well. H says that he doesn't care who he beats, just work it out between themselves or get Vince McMahon to do it. Hardy says that Vince loves first times, and says that for the first time ever Jeff Hardy vs John Cena. Vince comes on the Titantron and says what the people really want is how he's going to give away a million.
