(This was written the morning after the 7.15.02 RAW that featured the return of Eric Bishoff to TV.)
Last night all hell broke loose on Raw.  Then it froze over.
By now you probably know what happned.  Vinnie Mac killed the nWo (at least for this week).  Then pulled the biggest Holy SH!T moment since he bought WCW. 
He bought the guy who ran it.
Ran it into the ground.
For the record, Sleazy-E, you had one moment of glory, that was the nWo.  And the turning of Hogan.  for for about 50 of those 82 weeks, we turned in to see who was going to show up next.  It's amazing that you did not mentioned the coup de gras....the night that a quick signing and a taped RAW allowed  Rick Rude to be on two shows simultaneously on one night, making the then-WWF look like fools. 
Oh it was sweet then.   But after that debacle, you started getting fat.  ANd Vice started getting smart.
Within weeks, the phrase that paid all over the internet was "WCW Sucks!!"  Capped off by the Shoot-to-End-All-Shoots (before Hogan's on-air firing), having that phrase repeated by Scott Stiener.
Oh, we're gonna watch.  We're gonna watch Thursday to see if you sign HHH to RAW.  Or the Rock.  Or if Hulk Hogan just walks into shoot-land and stomps a mudhole in your bloated ass.
But one hopes you have learned lessons.  We'll watch a f'n hawk.

Paul Heyman enters the ring, with visible tears in his eyes listening to the crowd.

"Thank You Paul" Chants from the crowd…

Heyman looks very emotional…

More "ECW" Chants from the crowd…

Paul Heyman: "I want you to know that I'm not crying…my eyes are red because I was in the back smoking a joint with Van Dam…

I have a need in my heart to thank Tod Gordon for giving me the chance to be creative and book for you crazy bastards. I have a need to thank that man Ron Buffone and his partner Charlie Bruzzese for sticking with us and sitting in a TV Studio and building that TV show for you…you are the craziest bastards I have ever met in my life…I love every one of you.

(Crowd starts to chant "Paul E.")

Paul Heyman: "And I was gonna take the high road and just say thank you and leave…"

Mick Foley: "Don't take the high road Paul…"

Paul Heyman: "…but I have something to say to you! (points to the WWE wrestlers in the balcony) You see…I've waited a long time to say this to you…Eric Bischoff! But in case you don't notice…it's not Paul Heyman with his tail between his legs going to a WCW PPV…YOU ARE IN OUR HOUSE…B****!"

(Crowd cheers and chants "ECW")

Paul Heyman: "Oh wait a minute… wait a minute… wait a minute…hide your wives…it's Edge!"

(Crowd begins to chant "You Screwed Matt" to Edge as he reacts with a laugh and starts drinking his beer)

Paul Heyman: "Now Edge…I know nobody with a written promo has the balls to say this to you but…I have two words for you…MATT-FREAKIN'-HARDY!"

(Crowd Erupts in a massive pop and starts chanting "We Want Matt!" as Edge does a spit take with his beer)

Paul Heyman: "Well, with that…I almost forgot about you! Mr. Shoot Promo himself…bounced Checks…ECW went out of business...Hey John…On a personal note…from all of us just to you…since you want to shoot cowboy…the only reason you were WWE Champion for a year, is because Triple H didn't want to work Tuesdays…"

(JBL mocks Heyman by imitating Redd Foxx telling Elizabeth that he's coming to heaven with a heart attack as the crowd erupts in approval)

Paul Heyman: "Now one more time for old times sakes…right there so the whole world can see us…this ain't WCW…this ain't Monday Night RAW…this ain't SmackDown!...this ain't even WWE…this my friends…is E-C-F***ING-W!!"

(Crowd chants "ECW" as Paul Heyman exits the Hammerstein Ballroom)

Transcript Of The Controversial Promo By Paul Heyman
Reported by Matthew Boone on (November 15, 2001)

The following is a transcript of the infamous promo that has caused controversy and will appear on SmackDown. Make note that since SmackDown! is taped some vulgarity and other adjustments may be made to this.

"In just a few moments I will call Vince McMahon out
in his ring, in front of his public, on a television
show that is owned by his grand company.... At least
that is... until this Sunday at Survivor Series. I
know how much you appreciate what Shane, Stephanie and
I have done, how Shane Stephanie and I have stood up
to the tyranny of Vince McMahon and how this Sunday,
the WWF will die. But don't blame me for's
not my fault. I am not the one who lifts up my
leg...and pees all over the memory of Bruno
Sammartino. I am not the one who desecrated the memory
of Superstar Billy Graham. And I am not the one who
ruined everything that was accomplished by Stone Cold
Steve Austin.

You see, at Survivor Series it means so much more than
the personalities that are involved, it's about ending
what Vince McMahon has tried to accomplish. I sat
there at that desk on Monday and I listened to Mick
Foley and I agreed with everything that Mick Foley had
to say! The WWF truly does suck!

Don't boo me. Have you watched the TV show lately?
Vince McMahon has lost his mind. The man does not have
it anymore. He is a has-been, his ideas are outdated,
his concepts are draconian, and Mick Foley was right.
Because the WWF is imploding from within.

Like every great empire, the WWF is imploding from
within. Vince's loyal employees, like Stone Cold and
Mick Foley who want nothing to do with him, like his
Children who want him to burn in hell...and I don't
blame them. Vince McMahon will see the WWF die this
Sunday at Survivor Series, and he has no hope to save
his precious company. Vince has the same chances of
saving the WWF as he did of realizing his dream of
starting his own football league.

(Note at this point Vinnie Mac comes out.)

I want you to know, that I was down on my knees, as I
know you are used to men kissing your ass Vinnie.
Every time you walk in the back....There is Patterson
and Brisco saying, "What a great idea Vince!" (kissing

You like men kissing your ass, don't you Vince.
Because that's what you are all about...A Billionaire!
The Billionaire, Vince McMahon, the Creator of Sports
Entertainment. (Gets up in his face). I have waited SO
long to say this to your face I HATE YOUR STINKING

But it's not just me Vince. It's your children that
hate your stinking guts, and at Survivor Series your
children are going to do to you, what I have waited so
long to see somebody do to you Vince. You are so help
me god, .the most vile, disgusting, son of a bitch
that I have ever seen in my life. You took Hulk
Hogan's blood, and you built Titan Towers. You stole
Bret Hart's dream, and with that money you built
yourself an airplane and put the WWF all over it. You
did that, and you KNOW it you son of a bitch!

You stole Shawn Michaels smile, took your company
public, and made yourself a billionaire. But not a
self-made billionaire like you like to tell everyone
Oh NO. You made yourself a billionaire through other
peoples hard work. Your Father, Vince McMahon went
around the country shaking every promoters hand
saying, "I will never compete with you." And when your
father competed. And with your ruthless,
merciless, take no prisoners attitude, you drove
everybody out of business...didn't you Vince? You ran
all the competition into the ground, and you stole all
their ideas...and you made yourself a billionaire out
of it. And you know who's ideas you stole the most
Vince? you stole MINE!!

See I don't give a damn about Don Owen, and Sam
Mushnick, and Jim Crockett. I just care about what you
did to me and my family. How you stole my dreams and
my legacy, and you stole everything that ECW
represented. Because while Doink the Clown had green
hair and a rubber nose Stone Cold Steve Austin was
drinking his first beer in ECW DAMN YOU. While Bobby
Heenen and Gene Okerland were dancing around and
signing "Tutti Fruity", ECW was producing the edgy TV
that you named "Attitude". What you got is my ideas,
and you stole MY life, MY money, and MY LEGACY!!

tell you own children hate your guts
and on Sunday, they will get even with you for
everything that you stole from me...for everything
that you stole from them. You flaunt your affairs in
front of your wife, you flaunt your affairs in Playboy
for your children to read...You BASTARD!

Look at TAZZ! This man was a killer!! He was a
machine. He was a Wrestler and a real man. But
wrestling is a dirty word to you, isn't it Vince? Your
father built a wrestling company, and had to
have "Sports Entertainment" Tazz was a great wrestler
and now, he is a fat, little, obnoxious color
commentator. And not even a GOOD one. He is a "Sports
entertainer" He is not a wrestler, because you made
wrestling a dirty word. What kind of a man are you"?

(Note: Tazz gets mad and enters the ring)

What kind of a man takes wrestling, and makes it
Sports Entertainment? At Survivor Series, you're going
down. You're going down Vince, and I'm going to watch
it...and your children are going to stand over your
grave Vince and we are going to laugh. And there is
not a damn thing you can do about it. .I'm feeling
good about this!"

(Note: Tazz puts Heyman in a choke lock that seems to
last forever and Vince grabs the mic)

Vince McMahon says: Paul are the epitome
of the Alliance. Because this Sunday, the Alliance
will CHOKE.
