(2000-01-03) The Rock enters the ring at the opening of Raw to a tremendous reception in his hometown of Miami. "Finally, the Rock has come back...home!" Rock's still angry about the way Mick Foley was fired and challenges Triple H. Triple H and Stephanie walk out on the stage and Hunter replies, "There's nothing I'd like more than to kick your ass..." However, Triple H has already booked himself against the Big Show for the WWF Championship. So he announces the first ever Handicap You're Fired Match: Rock vs three opponents - and if the Rock loses he's fired. Furthermore, to keep things fair, Triple H declares that anyone who interferes will be fired. The Rock asks, "Just who might my opponents be?"

The Rock calls out Triple H and Stephanie. The couple walks out on stage alone, the rest of DX refusing to accompany them. "We can work something out," Stephanie states. "Know your role, and shut your mouth!" Rock proceeds to inform Hunter and Steph that he has several topics to discuss and, "If you don't meet our demands. We're all ready to walk out. And form the WRF - World Rock Federation. First topic, reinstate Mick Foley." Triple H quickly agrees, saying they were planning to do that anyhow.
