Triple H asked Eugene that if Benoit really was his friend, then why did he hit you with a chair and punch you? Triple H said he would put an end to Benoit tonight and asked Eugene if he liked that. Eugene agreed and Triple H told him he had a big surprise for him. Flair, who wasn’t excited at all, gave Eugene a blue “Nature Boy” robe to wear to the ring tonight.
