[Raw Is War starts with an onslaught of fireworks! The crowd is up and on their feet, as our cameras take us ringside to the best announcing team in the wrestling world... ]

Jim Ross - Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Raw Is War! This is good ole' JR with-

Jerry "The King" Lawler - Jerry "The King" Lawler, bringing you sports entertainment at it's best.

Jim Ross - King, we have one heck of a night on our hands here. We have the European Championship on the line tonight. We have the Intercontinental Championship on the line tonight. We even have our seemingly invincible Hardcore Champion putting his title on the line.

Jerry "The King" Lawler - Let's not forget we have Edge, The Road Dogg, Billy Gunn, The Game- Ah, the list goes on! All of these superstars are here tonight! This will be one to remember.

["Is this on?" Triple H's music hits the speakers, as the crowd gives a mixed reaction. Out steps the game from backstage. ]

Jim Ross - Well, here's one guy you didn't mention. Here's another of the many superstars we have here in the World Wrestling Federation. I'm sure he has something to say in regards to The Game. 

Jerry "The King" Lawler - Now, are they fighting over the name "The Game", or what? I'm confused.

Jim Ross - What else is new?

[Triple H has reached the ring, and now stands on the ring apron. He's wearing blue jeans, with a leather jacket, and a t-shirt with "The True Game" written across it. He steps into the ring, and is slid a microphone. He picks it up, hesitates, and now raises the microphone to his face to speak. ]

Triple H - I want this to end. I want it all to end. The Game, attacking me from behind, not being man enough to face me. It's all got to stop. Since The Game started, I want to finish it. Mick Foley, give me The Game!

[Suddenly, Mick Foley's music hits the speakers, as the crowd rises to their feet in cheer. Their beloved Mick Foley makes his way to the ring, with his usual waddle. He waves to the crowd. With microphone in hand, he rolls into the ring. He puts on hand in the air, and the crowd goes berserk. He now looks at Triple H between the eyes. As he raises the microphone to his mouth, The Game's music hits the speakers. ]

Jim Ross - This is getting good, King.

[The Game walks up to the ring with a mixed reaction from the crowd. The Game is wearing black jeans and a "Game" t-shit. He steps in, through the ropes, and Triple H darts after him, but is held back by Mick Foley. The Game, with microphone in hand says with a smile... ]

The Game - Easy there, Hunter. I share your interest, I want to kick your ass as much as you want to kick mine. Here's the difference, I will actually kick yours, while you'll fail at kicking mine.

["Fuck Off" by Kid Rock hits the speakers, as the crowd rises to their feet in anticipation of X-Rated. This is exactly what they get. The duo of Billy Gunn and Jeff Hardy step out from behind the stage. The crowd cheers, as Gunn, wearing sunglasses and a silk black shirt with Khaki pants, and Hardy, wearing white pants and a silk dark blue shirt, throw their hands in the air, much to the pleasure of the crowd. X-Rated makes their way to the ring, as Mick, The Game, and Triple H stand in surprise and curiosity. ]

Jim Ross - Now what are they doing out here?!

Jerry "The King" Lawler - I don't know, but it just made things really good! Where's Cameron?

[Jeff and Billy slide into the ring, and are tossed microphones. Jeff speaks first... ]

Jeff Hardy - I'm really sick of this. Why does the WWF torture our fans time and time again by giving such pointless feuds like yours so much air time? I'm tempted to kick both your asses.

Mr. Ass: With my help of course. Honestly, we don't give a damn about anyone here, but we just arrived in the arena, when we saw Triple H on the monitor, ranting as the crowd left to the concession stands. Then we see Mick Foley come out... A bit of the same. And finally, The Game. Ooo, did it take you a long time to come up with that name? We figured, hell, enough it enough.

Jeff Hardy: That, and it's time Raw Is War got a little X-Rated!

[The crowd cheers, as Gunn and Hardy smile. ]

Mr. Ass: So, Jeff. I think we should go ahead and complete our mission.

The Game: And what's that?

Mr. Ass: To kick your asses!

[Mick Foley steps out of the way, as Jeff Hardy spears Triple H to the canvas, and Billy does the same to The Game. They unleash series of right hands on Triple H and The Game, then lift them up. The Game, a bit dazed, receives a kick to the gut, then a Fame-Ass-Er! Jeff Hardy gives a Twist Of Fate to Triple H. Both Game and Game are out for the count in the middle of the ring. Jeff Hardy pulls Triple H over to The Game, then places his hand on The Game's ass. Gunn pulls out a small camera, then takes a picture of this questionable position. They both laugh, as Mick shakes his head, trying not to laugh. ]

Jeff Hardy: Ladies and gentlemen, Raw has officially begun with your hosts, X-Rated! We hope you enjoy the show.

Mick Foley: Nice work there guys, but I have an announcement to make. You two will take on these guys for the main event of Raw Is War! Have fun and good luck...

Mr. Ass: That's not a problem. Look at these two...

["Fuck Off' hits the speakers once again, as X-Rated exits the ring. The crowd cheers them on as they go, and Mick Foley is not to far behind... ]

Jim Ross - What a match! Already, we get to see Billy Gunn's return match! This is a guy, who's antics I never agreed with, but wrestling ability has to be respected. He's a great addition to the roster.

Jerry "The King" Lawler - He's even better when he has Cameron with him...

Jerry "The King" Lawler - Look, it's Test! Here he comes through the crowd!

[Test steps over the security rail, and slides into the ring. He cleans house of the three competitors. The crowd cheers, as the wrestlers bite the dust on the outside. Test's music hits the speakers and he leaves through the crowd. ]
