Monday Night Raw: 8 pm EST

Show opens up and Triple & Shawn Michaels come out to the ring. Triple H says he and Michaels took 25 years to climb the mountain, but the way the avalanche collapsed on that afterward made them question if the mountain was just a lie the whole time. Then a promo package reliving Undertaker and H’s feud is shown. Triple H then talks about respect and how it seems to be lacking today. He talks about the kind of respect that pits two friends back-to-back fighting against the world. And keeping your word no matter how many things try to make you go against it, that’s respect.

Shawn Michaels talks about the beatdown he and Triple H took at Super Showdown. Michaels says it really makes him think about the 8 long years he’s sat back and honored his word out of respect. And then Michaels arrived and Triple H said the three words he thought he’d never hear again: “Are you ready?” Triple then asks the Brothers of Destruction if they’re ready and Michaels says that D-Generation X is ready. And, Michaels says with ‘no respect at all’, that if the Brothers of Destruction aren’t down with that, he’s got two words for them: ‘Suck it!’
