*Originally the stipulation was that if Finlay interfered, he would be "fired". Finlay did interfere and hit Mr. McMahon with the shillelagh, which led to Hornswoggle getting the win. Later on, Mr. McMahon decided that he would not fire Finlay, because that would be "too good for him". Mr. McMahon then announced that on next week’s RAW from the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA that Hornswoggle will go one-on-one with Mr. McMahon in a Steel Cage Match. Also announced for RAW next week is Maria’s decision whether or not to pose for Playboy.

**Paul Burchill made his RAW debut with his "sister", Katie Lea Burchill. This is the infamous "incest angle" that has been rumored for some time.

***Just to note that this was John Cena’s first match on RAW since October 1, 2007.
