Steph interrupted and said they are awesome at having fun, which is what the show “WWE Countdown” is all about.

 They did the “Let’s Get Ready To Suck It” routine with Stephanie and more schtick. “This is the first time I’ve done it with a woman,” Hunter said. Instead of “Suck It” they said “WWE Countdown” and then “Watch It.” A video hyped the countdown show.

Stephanie interrupts and announces WWE Countdown, a new one-hour series that lets fans rank and discuss a variety of topics. Triple H asks her if that’s how she’s going to announce it?

Stephanie apologizes and says this is very embarrassing. Triple H says let’s get ready for WWE Countdown and if you’re not down with that, watch this. We get a preview for the Countdown show.

Democrat Bill de Blasio took the oath of office administered by former President Bill Clinton on Wednesday, formally becoming the city’s 109th mayor while pledging to pursue a sweeping liberal agenda.”Big dreams are not a luxury reserved for a privileged few but the animating force behind every community, in every borough,” he said.

The moment was the pinnacle of de Blasio’s unlikely political rise as a symbol of restoration for the city’s Democrats, who outnumber Republicans by a 6-1 ratio in one of the nation’s most liberal cities yet haven’t controlled City Hall since 1993.De Blasio was first sworn in 12 hours earlier at a brief modest ceremony outside his home in Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood. Flanked by his wife, Chirlane McCray, and their two teenage children, he was administered the oath by state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, signed the official paperwork and, with a broad smile, paid the requisite $9 fee to the city clerk.

The events at City Hall were conducted on a far grander scale.Clinton was joined by his wife, ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a presumptive White House front-runner in 2016. Another potential presidential candidate, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, also sat nearby, as did former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, just hours into his first day as a private citizen after spending 12 years in office.
