After the match, Triple H comes out. 

He asks everyone if they are having a good time.  The crowd chants for them to sign some of the women and he says it cost him too much money in the CWC.  Hunter says that we watch and do this because of the love for what happens in the ring.  The guys thought they would sacrifice everything for the chance to ride that rainbow.  There was a huge pot of gold for the guys.  The women saw what happened in the ring to have a chance to ride that rainbow, but there was no gold . . . until now.

You are that pot of gold.  This is that pot of gold.  It starts here for that sacrifice to live that dream.  Hunter thanks everyone for making that a reality.

We go to credits.
