Let's review My SummerSlam and see who came out on top.
Kelly Kelly won the six diva battle royal and is the new Divas Champion.
The Usos won the Tag Team Championships.
Ezekiel Jackson retained his Intercontinental Championship.
Skip Sheffield defeated Dolph Ziggler to win the United States Championship.
Wade Barrett defeated Randy Orton and retained his World Heavyweight Championship.
Chris Jericho was revelled as the mystery note writer and he defeated the Miz.
CM Punk defeated John Cena and is the new WWE Champion. Triple H is now in charge of the WWE.
We open the show to Michael Cole and the anonymous GM computer in the ring. Cole demands the attention of everyone and then goes on to read what the GM has to say. Before Cole can get too far, the new chairman of the WWE, Triple H makes his way down.
"Listen, Michael, I want to have a meeting with the GM in private so if you would, please turn around."
Triple H comically talks to the computer and then goes out of the ring and grabs a sledgehammer. Triple H bashes the computer and destroys it.
"My first act of CEO is to get rid of that annoying computer and the anonymous GM. I have found a regular general manager for Raw."
Triple H introduces Mic Foley and he is the new Raw GM. Foley walks down to the ring where he shakes Triple H's hand. They talk until William Regal and the Empire Alliance (sans Skip Sheffield) come out.
Regal: "What kind of garbage is this? First you ruin the career of Vince McMahon, who is the greatest man to ever live, and now you hire this fat, overgrown, pompous grease monkey to be the Raw GM. What is wrong with you?"
Triple H: "Regal, you're lucky that I bashed the computer and not you after what you and your group have done lately. But, I will not over react, I will let the new GM handle you."
Foley: "Regal, you will be in a match tonight and I already have your opponent picked out."
Regal: "Oh really? That's fine with me 'GM.' But before we forget, let me introduce the new British Champion to you."
Skip Sheffield walks out with his new British Championship (U.S. Championship re-done). The fans give heat, but Regal doesn't care and they walk to the back.
Triple H gets ready to leave when CM Punk's music hits and he comes out with his WWE Championship. The fans explode and Punk grabs a mic.
Punk: "Let's just make one thing very clear. I did not win this title for Triple H, I did not win this title with Triple H's help and I did not win this title to 'end an era.' I won this title for me, myself and I. I won it to get revenge on John Cena and Vince McMahon. I won it to finally force everyone to realize that I am the best in the business."
Triple H: "Why are you coming out here Punk? You got what you wanted now beat it go on."
Punk: "Yes, I did get what I wanted but so did you. You attached yourself to me so that you could profit off of my talent and finally get that big job you've always wanted. Triple H, I don't like you and don't you forget that."
Triple H: "Punk, I don't like you either. I think everyone here realizes that. But instead of wasting time arguing, why not have a match. Tonight, the WWE Champion CM Punk will take on the World Heavyweight Champion Wade Barrett!"
The crowd cheers and we fade to commercial with Triple H and Mic Foley shaking hands.
