Sheamus and WWE Champion Drew McIntyre are backstage. Sheamus talks about tonight’s main event and asks Drew to give Lee an extra kick in the head for him. Drew says he will do whatever it takes to defend his title. Sheamus wishes him good luck. Sheamus turns to leave but WWE Hall of Famers Hulk Hogan and Jimmy Hart have walked up. Hogan is fans of both and he’s glad he ran into the champ, so he can wish him all the good luck in the world. Hogan says it looks like Drew has been saying his prayers and eating his vitamins, and he’s proud of the way Drew has been carrying the WWE Title through these trying times. Hogan goes on and says Drew reminds him of himself. Drew thanks Hogan and says this is all surreal. He jokes around and asks if Sheamus reminds Hogan of Hart. Sheamus isn’t in the mood for jokes but wishes Drew good luck again, and says he will see Drew and Hogan for drinks later. Hart tells Sheamus to lighten up some and follows him away, yelling over and over about lightening up. Drew and Hogan then deliver the “what ya gonna do…” line for Lee.
