Roode is the longest reigning and dominant champion in company history. Austin is the one who beat him. Roode is talking but Austin says he is now. Aries says all of the great television happened between Roode and Aries. They did not get a celebration and respect. The lack of respect they get change to a mutual respect for their talent. This company is taking a step 10 years in the past. You have RVD as champion. You have Devon as the leader of Aces & 8s. You have Hernandez and Chavo as tag champs. The golden boy is Jeff Hardy. People can scream, but Roode and Aries don’t get the respect and it makes them sick. With all of this being said, they object to this wedding. Music hits and Chavo Guerrero comes out along with Hernandez. Chavo has a mic. Objections? Chavo objects also. Both of them walk down and get in the ring. Chavo also reject…but they do not object to the wedding. They like the wedding. They object the statements that the clowns are making about this company. They are objecting their objection. THere is a reason why they are no longer champions in this country, company, and world. Austin didn’t know they could object since they are the wedding caters. Who has Mexican at the wedding? Roode would like a enchilada though. Chavo laughs but then sticks it to Austin. Hernandez goes after Roode and tosses him out of the ring.

Replay from the Hogan and Sting segment plays. Hogan says he always does the right thing.

The camera is behind the window of Hulk’s office. Sting is there. They are sitting real close. Hogan has been trying to protect Brooke. He pulls out his phone and shows a picture of her when she was little. Sting agrees with everything but she sees something in Bully while Hulk can’t. This business blinded Hulk. He is wrong about Bully and he needs to walk Brooke down the aisle. Hogan had a long day and is going to pack up. He always does the right thing for this business and his family. He wants Sting to know that.

Everything is set-up. Music is playing and Bully Ray comes out backstage. He walks down the ramp. He is looking snappy in the tuxedo. He is smiling as he walks ups the steps to get in the ring.

He is all dressed up. He hugs her and says, “I love you.” He walks her down the ramp and up the steps. Hulk stands by her side while the crowd chants, “Shake his hand.” He doesn’t. The reverend, as I think he is, starts the ceremony. He asks who presents this woman. Hulk says he does and gives Brooke’s hand to Mark, aka Bully. He takes it. The guy continues to talk about their life together and love. Love and life together is the hardest thing to do but they will share their marriage together. No institution is more sacred than marriage. He asks them if they understand this. Both say yes. They can now express their love for each other via vows. Brooke starts. Brooke can’t believe she is standing in front of him right now in a wrestling ring giving her vows. He is her best friend and he knows how to make her laugh. Hulk really doesn’t like that statement. Brooke doesn’t know what she would do without Bully in her life.

Ray starts. He says he was going to write his vow but Brooke deserves something from his heart. Bully repeats that he loves her and loves her. The reverend asks if anyone objects. No one says anything. Do you have the rings. Brooke and Ray reach for them. The guy asks if Brooke will take Ray to be her husband. She does. Does Mark take Brooke to be his wife? He does. In the power invested in me….Taz stops him and grabs the mic. He says he goes back a long time. He asks Ray if he really wants to do this? Hulk and Brooke have no idea what he is doing. Yeah Ray wants to do this. The second question is….is it getting hot in here? Taz takes off his tux and reveals an Aces & 8s vest. Ray sees and looks all around. Here they come! They run in and take out everyone. They knock Hulk down and Ray. Sting runs in but he is crumbled. Doc and Mike Knox take Brooke as she watches the attack. Ray is knocked down multiple times.
