MONDAY NIGHT RAW!
Live from Atlanta, Georgia



*** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO ***


RAW is on the air as the fans go wild with gold lights flying around the arena to show that tonight’s RAW is a little different from normal ... At the side of the ring are tonight’s broadcast team at the announce table, JR and King ...



JIM ROSS: Tonight, we celebrate the year of 2010 in the WWE as Monday Night RAW hosts the annual Slammy Awards show tonight with me, Jim Ross, and my broadcast colleague, Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler!

JERRY LAWLER: And with just six days to go until the final pay-per-view of the year, JR, RAW is set to be incredibly intense as the superstars of RAW and SMACKDOWN prepare for Vengeance!

JIM ROSS: True, King, in six days time, we will be in Fort Lauderdale for the Vengeance pay-per-view where Wade Barrett will be defending the WWE Championship against the returning ‘American Hero’ ... Kurt Angle!

JERRY LAWLER: It was a dream return last week for Kurt, what will he have to say this week before the title match on Sunday?

JIM ROSS: Tonight, Kurt Angle will be coming out to present one of the Slammy Awards so we hope to hear from him about his return later on!

JERRY LAWLER: Kurt Angle prefers to let his actions in the ring do his ...

???: Can I have your attention please?

The cameras switch to the stage where Michael Cole is stood holding a microphone with a huge smile on his face and the WWE Universe immediately start jeering and booing ... Cole’s return to RAW tonight is not a popular one it seems ...

MICHAEL COLE: I said ... Can I have your attention please?

More boos for Cole but he continues on ...

MICHAEL COLE: Ladies and Gentlemen, I am here tonight to introduce the WWE Slammy Awards of 2010. 2010 has been a year of shocks, entertainment and emotional moments ... particularly myself, the Voice of the WWE, getting cut from this show ...

Cheers this time from the WWE Universe ...

MICHAEL COLE: Without further ado then, let’s get on with the award of the first Slammy Award of the night. And here to present the award is ... the former 8-time WWE Womens Champion ... TRISH STRATUS!

*** TIME TO ROCK AND ROLL ***


Huge pop in the Atlanta arena as the popular WWE Diva heads out looking ultra sexy as usual and carrying a little gold statue – the Slammy Award ... She salutes the crowd before heading over to the right hand side of the stage where Michael Cole is waiting with a huge smile on his face. As Trish approaches him, Cole goes for a hug for some reason ... Trish eyes him quizzically for a second before dodging past him to the delight of the crowd ... She stands at the WWE Slammy Award stand and prepares to speak into the microphone set up there ...

TRISH STRATUS: Hello, WWE Universe! Hello, Atlanta!

Huge cheer from the WWE Universe with plenty of wolf whistles as well ... Trish continues ...

TRISH STRATUS: Is it really four years since I last appeared in the WWE? Wow! Anyway ... I am here to present the Slammy Award for the ‘WWE Diva of the Year’ for 2010! Obviously, if I had been here still, it would have been me ...

More cheers from the crowd and Trish grins ...

TRISH STRATUS: ... but since I’m not, let’s see which WWE Divas are in the running to be ‘Diva of the Year’ ...

A video plays showing the entertainment provided this year by three WWE Divas: Eve Torres, Layla and Michelle McCool. Much of McCool and Layla’s actions are based on their time together as Laycool whilst the improvements being made by Eve Torres are highlighted as she has been showing that she is not just a pretty face but also a Divas Champion ...

TRISH STRATUS: So ... Who is the winner? Let’s find ...

MICHAEL COLE: Hold it, Trish, hold it. Let me ask you a question ... Who cares about who the ‘Diva of the Year’ actually is? Nobody in this arena cares about the Divas ... They’re just something pretty to look at!

Boos for the so called ‘Voice of the WWE’ as he trashes the Divas once more ... Trish looks shocked for a moment before retorting ...

TRISH STRATUS: You know what, Michael Cole? I think I know what your problem is with the WWE Divas ... I think you know that if you were to set foot in the ring with any of the WWE Divas, they would whip your ass in less than five minutes! Now shut up and let me announce the winner!

The crowd react positively to the claim that Cole would get beaten up by any of the WWE Divas if he were to get in the ring with one as Cole slinks back looking sheepish ...

TRISH STRATUS: Now that he has been shut up, let’s find out the winner of the Slammy Award!

Trish holds up a gold envelope and opens it before reading from the inside of the card ...

TRISH STRATUS: And the winner of the 2010 ‘Diva of the Year’ Slammy Award is ...

*** NOT ENOUGH FOR ME ***



TRISH STRATUS: ... MICHELLE McCOOL!

Out walks out Michelle McCool with a look of annoyance on her face as she heads over towards Trish ... Trish hands her the Slammy Award and Michelle McCool snatches it from her which causes Trish to look confused at McCool ...

MICHELLE McCOOL: Listen to me, Trash Stratus ...

Boos echo in the arena as Trish reacts negatively to her name being changed ... She is clearly wanting to know what McCool’s problem with her is ...

MICHELLE McCOOL: I don’t care how long you’ve been away from the WWE, it isn’t long enough. And as for you coming out here and saying that if you had been here, you would have won this award ...

Michelle McCool holds the Slammy Award up into Trish’s face ...

MICHELLE McCOOL: ... all you would have got if you were still here in the WWE is a beating from Michelle McCool!

Trish Stratus looks at McCool with a smirk on her face ...

TRISH STRATUS: Oh yeah?

McCool nods her head at Trish to confirm her thoughts ... Trish chuckles and then responds ...

TRISH STRATUS: That’s worth remembering, that is, Michelle. Maybe one day, I’ll come back and let you try!

The crowd cheer once more and a chant of ‘Come back Trish!’ begins in the arena ...

TRISH STRATUS: Congratulations on your award!

Trish Stratus walks off the stage to cheers and waves to the watching WWE Universe as she leaves ... However, Michelle McCool is not finished yet ...

MICHELLE McCOOL: There was only one WWE Diva in 2010 that deserved this award. It wasn’t Eve Torres and it sure as hell wasn’t that ungrateful Layla ... Since Survivor Series, I have been transferred from SMACKDOWN to RAW and I will be making my debut here next Monday.

The crowd boo although there are some cheers for the returning McCool ...

MICHELLE McCOOL: And I promise you all that it won’t be long before I am back where I belong ... back as the WWE Divas Champion. WWE Divas ... you have all been warned!

McCool turns on her heels and – still clutching her Slammy Award – struts out of the arena to jeers from the WWE Universe as her music plays through the arena. As she disappears, the cameras switch to the locker room where Wade Barrett and Ezekiel Jackson are stood together wearing their yellow and black Nexus t-shirts ... Of course, the WWE Championship belt is draped over the shoulder of Barrett who is speaking to Jackson about his forthcoming match ...

WADE BARRETT: ... and give him the beating he deserves. I want him weakened before Sunday, I want him struggling to move ... Prove yourself to the Nexus tonight, Zeke, this is your first big assignment. Go out there and show these morons in Atlanta what their ‘American Hero’ really is ...

EZEKIEL JACKSON: Don’t worry about it, Wade, I am going out there tonight to prove myself to the world. If Kurt Angle thinks that he is going to be at Vengeance this Sunday, he needs to think again. He won’t even survive tonight!

Big Zeke walks out of the locker room and Barrett smiles contently as he readjusts the WWE Championship on his shoulder ...

JIM ROSS: Ezekiel Jackson goes one on one with the Number 1 contender to the WWE Championship ... Kurt Angle! And that match ... is next!

********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********



********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********

*** WE ARE ONE ***



JUSTIN ROBERTS: This match is set for one fall. Introducing first, from Guyana, South America ... representing the Nexus ... EZEKIEL JACKSON!

The newest member of the Nexus heads out to jeers but is not interested as he makes his way towards the ring ... Rolling into the ring, Jackson pulls off his Nexus t-shirt in preparation for the match before menacingly bulging his biceps which look like bowling balls ...

*** MEDAL ***



The crowd cheer the returning Olympian Kurt Angle as he heads out onto the stage with his red, white and blue singlet on and his gold medals around his huge neck. He stops halfway down the ramp as the crowd affectionately chant ‘You Suck!’ in tune to his theme song ... Angle holds his hands up high and red, white and blue fireworks explode behind him ... Angle jogs up the ring steps and steps through the ropes to a huge reception from the WWE Universe who are delighted to see him back here in the WWE ...

JUSTIN ROBERTS: His opponent, from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania ... weighing 240 pounds ... KURT ANGLE!

JIM ROSS: This match could be very, very interesting, King!

JERRY LAWLER: It could, JR! It is very important that Kurt Angle gets this match over quickly though, he has a huge match to come this Sunday!

EZEKIEL JACKSON vs. KURT ANGLE

The power of Ezekiel Jackson shows early as he takes control and goes to work on Angle by hitting numerous heavy hitting moves. However, Kurt Angle is the master of wrestling and he is able to counter the power of Big Zeke and take him down to the mat where he is less effective. Angle almost locks in the Ankle Lock several times but each time Jackson escapes and after a while, the usual Nexus tactic kicks in as Heath Slater, Skip Sheffield and David Otunga arrive on the scene. Otunga distracts the referee while Skip Sheffield catches Angle unaware with a hard hitting clothesline before Heath Slater drops a leg over Angle from the top rope. Angle looks as if he is about to head into the WWE Championship match this Sunday on the back of a defeat but he kicks out of Jackson’s pinfall and survives to continue the match further ...

However, Jackson is now in charge and he squashes Angle into the corner on two occasions before a huge clothesline takes the Olympian down once more. A cover from Ezekiel Jackson follows ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Kick out from Angle! *


Ezekiel Jackson gets to his feet and stands back as he waits for Angle to get back to his feet ... As he does, Jackson scoops him up and hits the first of a series of powerslams. Three more powerslams follow and Kurt is looking weakened as Jackson signals that the match is over as he looks to lock Angle in the Torture Rack. Lifting the American Hero up onto his shoulder, Jackson goes to lock in the submission hold but Angle wriggles clear and hits a big German Suplex to surprise Jackson ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Jackson kicks out! *


Both men get to their feet but it is Angle who gets the advantage as he hits a Lariat Clothesline before clutching Zeke and tossing him over in a belly to back suplex throw. Jackson hits his leg on the rope and clutches it in pain as Angle goes for a cover ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Jackson kicks out! *


Once again, Nexus look to interfere and distract as Heath Slater jumps up on the apron and once again the referee’s attention is taken. Big Zeke hits a stiff kick to a distracted Angle to send him down once more. With the referee not looking, Otunga slides in a steel chair that Jackson grabs and he stands up ready to swing for Angle. Angle is in real trouble here as Zeke waits for him to get to his feet ... Up Angle gets, turns to face Jackson, the referee still distracted ... Big Zeke swings the chair at Angle but the American Hero ducks the chair and catches Ezekiel Jackson with the Angle Slam! Otunga jumps onto the apron and Angle hits him hard to send him crashing to the outside ... Sheffield enters the ring and grabs Angle but he misses with a short arm clothesline and Angle hits a belly to back suplex to send Skip under the bottom rope and down on the outside ... Heath Slater jumps through the ropes and past the referee but Angle ducks his punch ... Angle Slam to Slater as well! A pumped up Kurt Angle pulls down the straps of his attire now and the crowd cheer loud as Angle looks serious ... Jackson is up but wobbling and Angle hits a German Suplex ... he follows this by holding on to the suplex and following it with another German ... and another! Angle hits a fourth and final German Suplex, this time releasing Jackson so he flies back and crashes hard on his back and shoulders ... Ankle Lock! Kurt Angle locks in the Ankle Lock and Jackson squirms and writhes in pain ... Nexus are all down and there is nobody to help him out ...

* TAP *
* TAP *
* TAP *


WINNER: Kurt Angle (8:32)


JUSTIN ROBERTS: Here is your winner via a submission ... KURT ANGLE!

The four Nexus members group together in the ring once more but Angle wisely rolls out of the ring and backs away up the ramp as the referee raises his hand in victory. The crowd cheer Angle as he heads up the ramp and out of the arena ... The camera switches to a shot of Wade Barrett who is watching a TV with the title over his shoulder ... He shakes his head with a grimace and doesn’t look a happy bunny over what went down out in the ring ... The camera then changes once more to the SMACKDOWN General Manager Teddy Long who is smiling and laughing as he walks along the corridor ... He looks to have lifted a load off his shoulder last Friday night and he walks into the General Manager office where he shakes hands with the RAW General Manager Shawn Michaels and the owner of the WWE, Chip Butty ...

JIM ROSS: Just six days before Vengeance, King, SMACKDOWN General Manager Teddy Long is here for the Slammy Awards and he looks a lot happier than he did last week!

JERRY LAWLER: He does, JR, but what a win there for Kurt Angle ahead of Vengeance!

JIM ROSS: Kurt Angle picking up a hell of a lot of ...

MICHAEL COLE: OK, it is time for the second Slammy Award of the night if we can get JR to shut up for a minute ... The next award has a real legend, a man who deserves his place in the WWE Hall of Fame, here to present it ... Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome ... THE ‘MILLION DOLLAR MAN’ TED DiBIASE!

*** MONEY, MONEY, MONEY! ***


Out walks the WWE legend Ted DiBiase Senior onto the stage in his usual smart suit waving to the WWE Universe ... He walks over to the Slammy Award stand and prepares to address the WWE Universe who have given him a good reception ...

TED DIBIASE SR: Atlanta, Georgia ... I am here to present the second Slammy Award of the night and it is the award for ‘Tag Team of the Year’ ... but before I get to that, I would like to speak about something precious to me ... my son, Ted DiBiase, Junior!

A few boos echo around the arena for the unpopular son of the Million Dollar Man ...

TED DIBIASE SR: He is following in his old man’s footsteps and this Sunday, he is going to win his first ever singles title in the WWE when he defeats Daniel Bryan and Justin Gabriel to win the United States Championship.

A ‘Daniel Bryan!’ chant begins and it is clear that the WWE Universe aren’t wanting the younger son of the WWE Legend to win the US Title this Sunday ...

TED DIBIASE SR: Oh, he will, he will. On Sunday, my son will take his first steps towards becoming the main man here in the WWE. Just like his old man ... That is a fact, you can take it to the bank!

DiBiase laughs his trademark laugh as the crowd boo his words ...

TED DIBIASE SR: Now, let’s get to the award for ‘Tag Team of the Year’ ...

A quick video package shows the contenders for the Tag Team award tonight: first of all, the high flying Hart Dynasty team are shown before the ‘ShowMiz’ team from earlier in the year are shown next. The video ends with the former Tag Team Champions, Cody Rhodes and Drew McIntyre ...

TED DIBIASE SR: And the winners of the Slammy Award for the 2010 ‘Tag Team of the Year’ are ... DREW McINTYRE AND CODY RHODES!

Boos around the arena once more before the music of Cody hits ...

*** SMOKE AND MIRRORS ***



Slowly, Cody Rhodes walks out onto the stage where he checks his appearance in the mirror before heading over to the stand. He shakes the hand of the Million Dollar Man and takes the Slammy from him before heading over to the microphone ...

CODY RHODES: The ‘Million Dollar Man’ Ted DiBiase ... One half of one of the greatest tag teams in WWE history, Money Incorporated. And do you know why he was in one of the great tag teams? Because he had a reliable partner in Irwin R. Schyster ...

Rhodes is clearly still brooding over the loss of the Tag Team Championship recently which he blamed on his partner, Drew McIntyre ...

CODY RHODES: Now I am here to accept this award for the ‘WWE Tag Team of the Year’ but my partner, Drew McIntyre, is not. He messaged me earlier to tell me that he was sorry, that he knew he had let me down ... and that if we won the award tonight, it should be me who came out to accept it ...

Some boos for Cody, a few people seem to be sympathising with Drew!

CODY RHODES: Now, Drew says he will be here on RAW tonight and that he has a plan in mind to earn my respect. He says that tonight he is here to begin the long road back to being the ‘Chosen One’ ... I hope he can earn my respect but it is time for me to move on. I have been the Tag Team Champion, I have won this Slammy Award ... now it is time for Cody Rhodes to become a great singles competitor as well.

Some applause in the arena from his fans for Cody’s new intentions but plenty of boos as well ...

CODY RHODES: I am going to be responsible for my own destiny now, I am the most handsome and most talented young superstar on SMACKDOWN and it is time for me to shine. Not many people from this state go on to shine but Cody Rhodes will do just that and raise the profile of Georgia ... I will give you somebody in your meaningless lives to look up to ...

Boos around the arena as Cody insults his own state of Georgia ...

CODY RHODES: And next time I am in this state, at WrestleMania 27 ... Expect to see me with more gold than just this Slammy Award!

‘Smoke and Mirrors’ plays as Cody smiles a beaming smile at the WWE Universe, takes his Slammy Award and heads back off the stage shaking hands with the ‘Million Dollar Man’ Ted DiBiase once more as he does ...

JIM ROSS: Big words there from Cody Rhodes, King, can he live up to them?

JERRY LAWLER: Promising to come back to Georgia with title gold by the time WrestleMania 27 arrives? Big promise there from Cody Rhodes!

********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


THIS SUNDAY! LIVE ON PPV!

********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


*** POWER ***



JUSTIN ROBERTS: This match is set for one fall. Introducing first, from Cape Town, South Africa ... weighing 223 pounds ... JUSTIN GABRIEL!

Out walks Gabriel to a positive reaction after his altercations with Ted DiBiase last week ... He looks determined as he heads for the ring as he slaps a few hands of the WWE Universe as he gets closer to the ring ...

JIM ROSS: Well, we heard from the ‘Million Dollar Man’ before the break when he declared that his son Ted DiBiase would be winning the United States Championship this Sunday in a Triple Threat ... Well, here comes one of his opponents!

JERRY LAWLER: This young man has impressed me so much recently, JR! He could cause a surprise this Sunday and walk out of Fort Lauderdale as the new United States Champion!

JIM ROSS: No doubt about it, King, the 450 Splash could beat any guy here in the WWE ... Just ask John Cena and Randy Orton!

*** RIDE OF THE VALKYRIES ***



JUSTIN ROBERTS: And his opponent, from Aberdeen, Washington and weighing 192 pounds ... He is the United States Champion ... DANIEL BRYAN!

Daniel Bryan comes skipping out towards the ring saluting his fans at ringside as he does ... He heads into the ring and jumps up onto the ropes to salute them again ...

JIM ROSS: And here is the man who will be defending that title, King!

JERRY LAWLER: The man at a disadvantage because he doesn’t have to be pinned to lose his title as well ...

JIM ROSS: That’s true, King, the champion’s advantage doesn’t exist in a Triple Threat match ...

NON-TITLE MATCH: DANIEL BRYAN vs. JUSTIN GABRIEL

The match starts off with both men slapping hands with each other to show their respect but after that the gloves are off as both men look to get the momentum ahead of the US Championship match on Sunday. They lock up and try to wrestle each other down to the mat with both men efficient in countering their opponent as they try to take each other down. In the end, Gabriel takes Bryan down with an Arm Drag and locks in a rear chin lock to force the US Champion down to the mat. Daniel Bryan counters this hold though and manages to lock Gabriel’s arm behind his back and the South African is forced to reach out and grab the rope to break the hold. The referee tells Bryan to break and he does with the WWE Universe showing their appreciation for the mat wrestling so far. Bryan hits a kick to the waist of Gabriel as they are both back to their feet and then follows it with several more kicks to the thigh and arms. Gabriel drops to his knees and Bryan hits a Roundhouse Kick to the side of the head of the South African that takes him down before Bryan locks in a Heel Lock to Gabriel that makes him writhe in pain. Gabriel desperately tries to make his way towards the ropes as Bryan looks to force a quick submission ... Can he make it to the ropes? Yes, he can, Gabriel hooks the bottom rope with his other foot and again the break is forced by the referee ...

Both men get to their feet once more and they lock up once more, this time it is Gabriel who breaks out with a German suplex that catches Bryan by surprise. As Bryan gets to his feet, Gabriel hits the ropes and rushes at his opponent, twisting himself around Bryan’s shoulders before hitting a Tilt-a-whirl DDT to the US Champion. With Bryan down and out, Gabriel hooks the leg and goes for the first cover of the match ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Kick out from Bryan! *


Justin Gabriel jumps quickly to his feet and waits for Bryan to get back up before hitting a combination of his own kicks to the thighs and chest of Daniel. Gabriel has Bryan down on his knees and looking weary as he winds up once more to hit a big roundhouse kick ... Bryan ducks it and catches Gabriel off guard with a snap suplex before staggering into the corner of the ring. As Gabriel gets up to his feet, Bryan runs over from his corner and lifts his leg up high as he jumps to hit a Leg Lariat. With Gabriel down, Bryan takes his chance to go for his first pinfall of the match ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Gabriel kicks out! *


Now Justin Gabriel is the one who staggers up and falls onto the ropes in the corner. This gives Bryan a chance to rush over towards the South African looking for a running dropkick to the chest but Gabriel moves out of the way ... Bryan’s body collides with the top two turnbuckles and then he falls to the mat in the corner landing roughly on his head. The crowd gasp at this but then Bryan gets back to his feet as Gabriel recovers too. Gabriel goes for a forearm smash to Daniel Bryan who also ducks, both men hit the ropes before ducking each other again at breakneck speed ... Both men go for a running crossbody at the same time and they collide in the middle of the ring, both men are down ... The referee begins to count them both out as they lay struggling on the mat ...




JIM ROSS: Wait a minute, what is he doing here, King?

JERRY LAWLER: I don’t know, JR, maybe he wants to watch the end of this match?

Ted DiBiase slides into the ring and the referee demands that he leaves as he is forced to stop his count. DiBiase surveys the situation and then leaves the ring and grabs the United States Championship belt of Daniel Bryan from the timekeeper at ringside. He slides back into the ring and ignores the protestations of the referee as Daniel Bryan gets slowly to his feet ... BAM! DiBiase smashes Bryan in the small of the back with the title belt and the referee immediately signals for the bell to end the match. DiBiase doesn’t seem interested though and as the bell rings and the match ends, DiBiase drives the title belt into the back of Justin Gabriel as well ...

WINNER: NO CONTEST (5:28)


JIM ROSS: Wait a minute, King! What the hell was that all about?

JERRY LAWLER: It’s pretty clear to me, JR, DiBiase is trying to send a message to the men he faces this Sunday! The advantage goes to Ted DiBiase!

JIM ROSS: In my opinion, King, there was no need for it. No need at all, damnit!

DiBiase throws the title belt down and looks around at the WWE Universe with a smile on his face. He points at himself and then signals that he will be the new United States Champion this Sunday before following the advice of the referee and leaving the ring with both Daniel Bryan and Justin Gabriel, his opponents on Sunday, laid writhing in pain and clutching their backs ... The camera follows DiBiase as he leaves the ring for a moment before switching to the interview pit where Josh Mathews is waiting with a microphone ...

JOSH MATHEWS: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time ... the holder of the ‘Money in the Bank’ briefcase ... THE MIZ!

Boos and whistles ring out around the arena as The Miz comes into shot looking cocky as his apprentice, Alex Riley, stands behind him holding the red ‘Money in the Bank’ briefcase in his hand ...

JOSH MATHEWS: Miz, last week you missed out on becoming the Number 1 contender for the WWE Championship at Vengeance this weekend. With no match scheduled for the pay-per-view, what are you plans now?

Miz looks at Josh Mathews with a look of disgust in his eyes ... He contemplates for a second and then chuckles out loud ...

THE MIZ: I might have lost the chance to go for the WWE Championship at Vengeance, Josh, but you seem to be forgetting something ...

Miz reaches round and takes the red briefcase from Alex Riley behind him ... He holds it up as he speaks to Josh Matthews ...

THE MIZ: ... This! I have this ‘Money in the Bank’ briefcase and – if I want to – I can insert myself into the WWE Championship match at any moment I choose. I could go out there right now and call out Wade Barrett if I wanted to. It doesn’t matter when and where I get my shot at the WWE Championship, all that matters is that when I do get it, I will become the W – W – E Champion ...

Miz looks round at Riley who agrees with him out loud ... Smirking once more, Miz continues ...

THE MIZ: Last week, that ‘coward’ Kurt Angle eliminated me from the Number 1 contender match ... He will pay for that decision, that is a guarantee, Josh ... And if he wins the WWE Championship this Sunday at Vengeance, then I will be out there to cash in my contract and take it straight from him ... Because I’m ... The ... Miz ... And I’m ... What the hell do you want?

Miz’ expression turns to annoyance as we see John Morrison enter the interview area with a huge smile on his face ... He laughs at Miz as he removes his sunglasses ...

JOHN MORRISON: Miz, Miz, Miz ... You’re not awesome, my friend. You’re awful! And you proved that once and for all last week when yet again you lost when it mattered ...

THE MIZ: Just like when I won this, yeah?

Again, the briefcase is held up by Miz as an answer to the verbal attack from John Morrison ...

JOHN MORRISON: Miz, you climbed a ladder and got lucky to win that. Everybody knows it. But last week when you had to fight for your place in a WWE Championship match, you failed – again. And all this after you’d criticised my chances of becoming WWE Champion!

THE MIZ: Listen to Janetty talk, Riley. Doesn’t he sound the tough man? Listen to me, I am the future WWE Champion, not you. I will use the ‘Money in the Bank’ contract to win the title when I am ready and then I will go on and defend that title over and over and over. I am the most must-see WWE superstar of all time while you ... you’re just the Miz’ old partner. That’ll be your claim to fame for the rest of your career!

Morrison steps forward and stares into the eyes of his former partner and the tension between the two is clear ... Riley is prepared in case Morrison goes for Miz but before anything can happen, a voice calls out from off camera ...

???: Hold it there, guys, hold it there!

Miz and Morrison turn to face the speaker and into the shot walks the RAW General Manager Shawn Michaels to cheers from the WWE Universe watching outside in the arena ... Michaels stands between Miz and Morrison and ushers them back a little to ease the tension between the two ...

SHAWN MICHAELS: You know what, fellas? I’m getting a little sick and tired of this arguing between you two now so I think I should do something about it. So tonight, the main event will see you, Miz, go one on one ... with John Morrison!

Loud cheers from the WWE Universe as Morrison smiles ... However, Miz seems a little frustrated at HBK’s decision as he shakes his head ... HBK ushers them both in separate directions ...

SHAWN MICHAELS: Now both of you run along and get ready for your match later ...

The camera switches back to the stage where Michael Cole is waiting at the Slammy Award stand with a microphone in his hand ...

MICHAEL COLE: Ladies and Gentlemen, it is time for the next Slammy Award of the night and it will be the ‘WWE Match of the Year’ for 2010. Here to present the award is a WWE hall of famer who had many ‘Match of the Year’ candidates during his illustrious career ... BRET ‘THE HITMAN’ HART!

The crowd go wild for the return of the WWE Hall of Fame legend as the pink and black lights flash around the arena ...

*** RETURN THE HITMAN ***


Bret Hart heads out in his leather jacket and shades with his hands out as the crowd cheer him. He walks over to the left hand side of the stage first and salutes the crowd before heading over to the right hand side of the stage where the Slammy Award stand is positioned to salute the crowd on that side as well ... Bret then heads for the stand and the music fades out ...

BRET HART: Thank you, what an honour it is to be back here in the WWE tonight to present this award. The ‘Match of the Year’ award is a real honour to receive and there have been several contenders for the award ... So shall we find out who has won the award?

The crowd are desperate to know which match has been designated as the ‘Match of the Year’ and they cheer Bret Hart as he begins to open the envelope ...

BRET HART: The 2010 ‘WWE Match of the Year’ is ...

Tension in the arena as Bret reads the card in the envelope ...

BRET HART: ... The winner is ... Sheamus vs. Triple H, 3 Stages of Hell, Survivor Series!

The crowd cheer to show their appreciation for the efforts of those two men in that match at Survivor Series in the last pay-per-view offering from the WWE last month ... As Bret nods his head in appreciation, the music of one of the competitors starts ...

*** WRITTEN IN MY FACE ***



Out walks the ‘Celtic Warrior’ Sheamus with his little accomplice Hornswoggle running around in front of him as he heads out. Sheamus approaches Bret Hart at the Slammy Award stand and he snatches the trophy from the WWE Hall of Famer and refuses to shake his hand. Bret looks annoyed but he allows Sheamus to take the award before standing back to listen to what Sheamus has to say ...

SHEAMUS: You just stand back there, fella, while ‘oy tell all these people a few home truths.

Bret Hart raises his eyebrows as the crowd jeer Sheamus’ comments ...

SHEAMUS: Finally, ‘oy am gettin’ the recognition that ‘oy deserve. For the past two W-W-E pay-per-views, ‘oy have beaten Triple H in an Ambulance Match and then in Triple H’s own speciality match, t’ree Stages o’ Hell. And still, the RAW General Manager fails to recognise that ‘oy am the most dominant man here in the W-W-E.

Sheamus looks down and shakes his head clearly unhappy about this ...

SHEAMUS: Now, Shawn Michaels, ‘oy know dat you and Hunter are some kinda’ best friends but ‘oy reckon that you should be impartial. Last week, Triple H disrespected me by t’reatening me and making sure that ‘oy was counted out of the Number 1 contender match. What do ‘oy have to do to get me some respect round here?

A loud ‘HBK!’ chant goes up in the arena and Sheamus smirks to himself before continuing ...

SHEAMUS: Now ‘oy want you ... No, ‘oy am demanding dat you take action against Triple H for his actions last week on RAW. And if you don’t, fella ... well, let’s just say dat’ you wouldn’t wanna make an enemy outta’ me.

Sheamus’ music restarts as he walks down the ramp towards the ring carrying the Slammy Award ... He enters the ring and prepares for action ...

JIM ROSS: Sheamus goes one on one with Tyson Kidd, next, on RAW!

********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


COMING SOON!

********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


RAW returns with Tyson Kidd in the ring as well, the introductions have been made and he is prepared for his match with Sheamus. There is no sign of Natalya and David Hart-Smith at ringside but, after the disrespectful comments from Sheamus before, Bret Hart has accompanied Tyson to the ring for the match ...

JIM ROSS: Bret Hart is in the corner of Tyson Kidd this evening, King, with Kidd the last graduate from the fabled Hart Family Dungeon back in Calgary.

JERRY LAWLER: Even with Bret in his corner, JR, Tyson Kidd needs to hit something quick here if he is to pull off a shock!

SHEAMUS vs. TYSON KIDD

Kidd surprises Sheamus several times early on in the contest as he uses his speed and agility to take Sheamus down. However, the size and power of Sheamus comes more and more into play as he grinds down the high-flying Kidd and takes him down to the mat more often. Bret Hart doesn’t get involved but he does offer encouragement to Kidd as he tries to pull off the upset but it is looking less and less likely as Sheamus continues to beat down on Kidd. Sheamus hits a short arm clothesline to Kidd after wearing him down with an arm bar before going for the pinfall ...

* Kidd manages to kick out! *


Sheamus drags Kidd to his feet and shoots him off into the ropes before lifting him up and hitting a crunching backbreaker, driving his knee hard into the lower back of Kidd. He holds Kidd over his knee for a moment as he forces Kidd to writhe in pain with the point of his knee digging into him as Kidd winces before he manages to roll himself off. However, Sheamus waits for Kidd to get to his feet and hits him with a War Sword axehandle once, twice, three times as takes Kidd down over and over ... Another pinfall from Sheamus ...

* Kidd kicks out to the delight of Bret Hart ringside! *


With Kidd face down on the mat, Sheamus kneels on his lower back and locks in a Camel Clutch hold as he tugs back Kidd’s head. Kidd is in agony as he tries to find an escape with Bret encouraging him from the side of the ring. Kidd begins to inch his way towards Bret at the ropes and stretches out looking to grab the bottom rope rather than giving up. Sheamus suddenly decides to release Kidd from the Camel Clutch to take issue with Bret Hart and he stands at the ropes looking down at the WWE Legend with a look of annoyance in his eyes. Bret, as ever, will not have anybody try to talk him down and he responds with some stiff words for the Celtic Warrior as well as Kidd recovers behind ... Suddenly, Tyson grabs Sheamus by the tights and drags him down into a roll up, shoulders down ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Sheamus just kicks out in time! *


Sheamus is all bent out of shape as Kidd surprised him and the Hart Dynasty member goes to work with a standing dropkick to the Irishman. Sheamus staggers back and Kidd takes his chance to springboard off the ropes and hit a Sunset Flip to roll Sheamus up again ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Sheamus powers out! *


Another drop kick, this time a low one to the knee, takes Sheamus down to his knees and Kidd follows up with a vicious kick combination as the fans completely rally around him. Sheamus is sent to the mat with a hard roundhouse kick by Kidd who then springboards off the rope again to hit a leg drop over his chest. Kidd with a third successive cover of the big Irish superstar ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Sheamus throws Kidd off of him! *


Sheamus looks to get some time to recover as he rolls out of the ring but now he faces up to the WWE legend that is Bret Hart who demands that he shows some guts and gets back into the ring. Sheamus doesn’t appreciate the words of the Hitman and he points a finger into the chest of him daring the Hall of Famer to do something about it. However, Hitman doesn’t need to as Tyson Kidd suddenly jumps onto the top rope and somersaults into a Plancha that takes Sheamus down on the outside. The crowd are going wild here for the super display that Kidd is showing as Bret slaps him on the back and urges him on. Kidd gets back into the ring at the order of the referee and he begins to count Sheamus out. The crowd are willing the referee to count faster as Kidd looks for the upset victory ...

* Sheamus gets onto the apron and re-enters the ring! *


Head exposed as he come back through the ropes and his eye focused on Bret Hart, Sheamus never sees Kidd coming off the ropes again as he hits a running dropkick that leaves Sheamus hanging over the middle rope. On his knees on the edge of the apron with his upper body hanging over the rope, Sheamus is in perfect position and Kidd goes to the outside of the ring and climbs to the top rope. He deliberates for a moment and then goes for a leg drop to the back of Sheamus’ shoulders and back, hits it perfect ... Kidd has a great chance here, he drags Sheamus away from the ropes and hooks the leg ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Sheamus just kicks out this time! *


A loud ‘Oohhhh!’ echoes around the arena as Kidd misses out again and he holds his head in frustration. Again, Bret Hart urges his ‘protege’ on and Kidd pumps himself up as he waits for Sheamus to get to his feet. As soon as Sheamus does, Kidd leaps up onto the top rope once more and springboards over into a twisting neckbreaker ... The Code Blue! But Sheamus counters and throws Kidd forward. Like a cat, Tyson lands on his feet and he turns around to meet Sheamus once more ... BROGUE KICK! Sheamus hits the Brogue Kick out of nowhere and this one is surely over ...

WINNER: Sheamus (7:21)


JUSTIN ROBERTS: Here is your winner ... SHEAMUS!

Sheamus’ theme rings out as he shakes his head to recover, he couldn’t have expected Kidd to put up that much of a fight tonight. Sheamus looks frustrated with himself over letting Kidd get in so much offence ... As Kidd gets to his feet, Bret Hart applauds from the outside as he beckons Kidd over to him. The WWE Universe follow suit as Sheamus eyes Kidd with a strange look in his eye – is that respect? No! Sheamus suddenly rushes over and hits another Brogue Kick to the side of the head of Tyson Kidd and the WWE Universe boo and jeer their heads off at Sheamus’ dastardly actions. Bret Hart climbs onto the apron to complain at Sheamus but the Celtic Warrior ignores him and drags Kidd up to his feet. Kidd has jelly legs as Sheamus hits the Irish Curse backbreaker across his knee and Bret Hart has had enough. Into the ring comes the legendary Hitman and he starts pummelling away at Sheamus to stop him ... Sheamus covers up at first but then shoves Hitman away ... BROGUE KICK! Sheamus takes Bret Hart down with another vicious Brogue Kick ... The WWE Universe boo and show their feelings for Sheamus’ actions but he doesn’t care ... He drags Hart to his feet and signals for the High Cross ...

JIM ROSS: No, don’t do this Sheamus! For gawds sake, he is a Hall of Famer!

JERRY LAWLER: I agree, JR, Sheamus needs stopping ...

*** TIME TO PLAY THE GAME ***



Triple H comes down to the ring holding a sledgehammer and he slides into the ring to deny Sheamus chance to hit the High Cross to Bret Hart. The Celtic Warrior wisely moves out of the way and he exits the ring and backs away up the ramp as Triple H glares at him from the ring. Hunter signals for a microphone and is handed one by the timekeeper ...

TRIPLE H: You think that you’re pretty tough nowadays, hey, Sheamus? Two wins over Triple H and you think you’re the big dog here on RAW, yeah?

Sheamus nods his head and thumps his chest as Triple H continues to stare after him ...

TRIPLE H: Let me tell you something, Sheamus. The whole world saw what happened at Cyber Sunday and Survivor Series. You’re not the big dog here on RAW ... That little troll that follows you around is the guy that beat Triple H twice in a row. He’s the one who hit me with a steel pipe when I had you beat in the Ambulance Match. He’s the one who messed with the table during the ‘3 Stages of Hell’ match and then hits me in the head with a steel pipe again as I was about to exit the cage. I’ve had you beat every time and that troll has saved your skin every time.

Sheamus is shaking his head at Hunter’s words and isn’t letting them bother him at all ...

TRIPLE H: So here’s the deal, Sheamus. Let’s end this once and for all. You and me, one on one, Vengeance ... Last ... Man ... Standing!

The WWE Universe go wild with excitement, they would love to see that match. However, Sheamus doesn’t appear to keen. He is shaking his head at Triple H and telling him that he has nothing to prove to him no more ...

TRIPLE H: Just as I thought, Sheamus. Not such a big dog after all, are you?

Sheamus refuses to be drawn in and he waves his hand at Triple H to show his lack of consideration for the match ... He turns to walk away up the ramp and onto the stage when BAM! SWEET CHIN MUSIC FROM THE GENERAL MANAGER!



The crowd go wild as HBK stands over Sheamus with a look of pleasure on his face ... He drags Sheamus to his feet and runs him back to the ring where he rolls him under the ropes and into the ring. HBK takes the microphone from Triple H ...


SHAWN MICHAELS: Man, that felt good!

The WWE Universe cheer loudly as Sheamus gets slowly to his knees and faces HBK in the ring ...

SHAWN MICHAELS: I’m sick and tired of your actions recently Sheamus so this Sunday ... Vengeance ... it will be you against Hunter ... Last Man Standing!

The WWE Universe roar in appreciation, Triple H smiles ... But HBK isn’t finished ...

SHAWN MICHAELS: And that little troll that Hunter was referring to before, Hornswoggle ... He is banned from ringside ... He is banned from under the ring ... In fact, he is banned from Fort Lauderdale just to be on the safe side ... If he interferes in the match in any way, shape or form, Sheamus ... you will be suspended for six months!

The crowd go crazy once more as HBK smiles at the Celtic Warrior who looks ready to explode as he kneels up facing HBK ...

SHAWN MICHAELS: But what kind of General Manager would I be if there wasn’t anything in it for you, Sheamus?

HBK looks around the arena as he considers what will be in it for Sheamus ...

SHAWN MICHAELS: So, Sheamus, the winner of the match will become the Number 1 contender for the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble event next month! And if you’re not down with that, we got TWO WORDS FOR YA ...

The crowd shout ‘Suck it!’ as Michaels gets right into the face of a furious Sheamus ... Suddenly, Triple H pulls Sheamus round, kicks him in the gut ... PEDIGREE! TRIPLE H HITS THE PEDIGREE!

JERRY LAWLER: Wait a minute, JR, the General Manager of RAW can’t treat one of his roster like that, can he?

JIM ROSS: It seems like he can, King, HBK with a huge announcement tonight. Vengeance, this Sunday, Last Man Standing, Sheamus against Triple H, Hornswoggle barred from the event and the winner goes to the Royal Rumble as the Number 1 contender for the WWE Championship! Oh my!

Triple H and Shawn Michaels are making their way up the ramp as they re-unite, for one night only, with D-X running amock on Monday Night RAW!

BEGINS NEXT WEEK!

********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


*** HOT ROD ***



MICHAEL COLE: To present the next Slammy Award, please welcome ... ROWDY RODDY PIPER!

The crowd are on their feet as another WWE Legend makes his way out onto the stage to present the next Slammy Award ... Hot Rod makes his way out wearing his usual leather jacket and kilt combo as he heads for the Slammy Award stand. He stands at the award stand with an envelope in his hand ...

RODDY PIPER: Wow! Oh yes, how cool is this? You know ...

Piper is interrupted by a loud chant of ‘Roddy!’ from the respectful WWE Universe here in Atlanta tonight ...

RODDY PIPER: ... Thanks for that. You know, over the years, I’ve seen a lot of guys come, I’ve seen a lot of guys go and I’ve seen a whole lotta’ guys who worked their butts off and never got their shot, their chance to shine.

Piper smiles as he speaks about his past in the WWE ...

RODDY PIPER: One of the biggest regrets of my life is that I never managed to win the big title, I never managed to win the WWE Championship in my career. I came this close but I never quite made it. But I saw a lot of guys who did make it and to do it, they all had to go through me at some point. Can you remember WrestleMania 8?

Piper nods his head as he thinks back to that time ...

RODDY PIPER: At WrestleMania 8, I had the greatest match in my entire career. I lost that match that night against Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart ... but you know what? I was so proud that night because I knew that I had just wrestled one of the future great wrestlers in this business. I knew that I had single handedly stole the show and gave one guy the perfect springboard to a career at the top.

Applause rings out around the arena ...

RODDY PIPER: And that is why I am here tonight. I am here to present the award for the ‘WWE Breakout Star of 2010’ which is an award for the guy who had made the breakthrough, a guy who has broken out and has made his move to the top ... The winner of this award is a guy that this Sunday will become the new World Heavyweight Champion for the first ... time ... ever ...

The crowd get to their feet as they realise who Hot Rod is talking about ...

RODDY PIPER: Ladies and Gentlemen, I am proud to present the award for the ‘WWE Breakout Star of 2010’ to ... KOFI KINGSTON!

*** S. O. S. ***



Kofi Kingston comes bounding out onto the stage and he embraces Rowdy Roddy Piper who gives him a ‘pep talk’ on the stage as he presents him with the Slammy trophy. Kofi audibly assures Hot Rod that he will give it everything he has this Sunday and the two of them acknowledge the WWE Universe with Hot Rod continuing to display his belief that Kingston will be the World Champion this Sunday at Vengeance ...

*** THIS FIRE BURNS ***



Kingston and Piper turn around to see the World Heavyweight Champion C.M. Punk heading out with the World Championship belt around his waist ... Punk is sarcastically applauding as he steps out onto the stage and he wipes an imaginary tear from his eye as he approaches the pair of them ... Kofi ushers Hot Rod back trying to keep the WWE Legend out of harm’s way after witnessing the actions of Sheamus towards Bret Hart earlier in the evening ...

CM PUNK: Don’t worry yourself, Kofi, I’ve no intention of attacking Hot Rod ... Rowdy Roddy Piper ... a legend here in the WWE ...

Piper doesn’t trust Punk and tells him so whilst the WWE Universe cheer Punk’s comments about Hot Rod ...

CM PUNK: I’m just here to let you know that, Hot Rod, however much I respect you for what you did in there ...

Punk points to the ring ...

CM PUNK: I don’t respect you for what you have to say, I never have and I never will.

Boos for CM Punk as he focuses on Hot Rod ...

CM PUNK: You see, I can’t recall you speaking any sense since about 1985, Piper ... and even then, I think it was by accident. Kofi Kingston will not win MY World Heavyweight Championship this Sunday ...

Piper is adamant that Kofi will win it ... Punk smirks at him ...

CM PUNK: He won’t win it, Piper, let me tell you why. He’s already had four chances to win the World Championship over the past few months and he has failed every time. Kofi is just one of those guys that never quite makes it, he’s one of those guys that comes up short every time and blames everybody else around him. He is just one of those guys that puts up a brave effort and thinks that is OK ... The fans love you, Kofi, keep doing what you’re doing ... But be prepared to keep ... falling ... short!

Kofi is deliberating Punk’s choice of words and it seems as if Punk might have struck a nerve here with Kingston ...

RODDY PIPER: CM Punk, in the past, you might have been right but not this time. This Sunday, while you are preoccupied with Kane and the Big Show ... Kofi will sneak in under the radar ... and become the World Champion. Whether you think it or not ...

CM PUNK: Oh yeah ... Oh yeah, just because Roddy Piper says it is so, that is how it is gonna’ be?

The WWE Universe cheer and show that they agree with Piper ...

CM PUNK: No way, not a chance. Roddy Piper, nobody respects your opinion any more ... old man. You’re just another past it WWE Hall of Famer ... somebody who is always chasing one last sniff, one last experience ... one more taste of the limelight ... You’ll do anything to get it. Present a Slammy Award? Cheer for a Number 1 contender. Wrestle Jerry Lawler in the main event of the WORST pay-per-view in WWE history ...

The crowd boo Punk’s comments ...

JERRY LAWLER: What?!!

CM PUNK: King of the Ring 1994 for those of you who wanna’ YouTube it ... I’d warn against it though. You’ll do whatever it takes for another slice of the cake, won’t you? And the less chance you get, the more you descend into a world of depression and memories of what you once were, you drink alcohol more and more, you take painkillers just so that you can get through the next hour with no pain ...

The WWE Universe are getting upset with Punk’s treatment of Hot Rod who is stood there taking it now ... Maybe he has hit a nerve with him too?

CM PUNK: Face it, old man, you are a shadow of your former self, you are worthless now, you are nothing, nothing I tell ...

Kofi finally snaps and he hits the ‘Trouble in Paradise’ kick to the side of Punk’s head and sends him crashing down to the steel floor on the stage ... Kofi picks up the microphone that Punk was using ...

KOFI KINGSTON: Too far, man, too far. Roddy Piper is twice the man that you will ever be ... Tonight on RAW, the Big Show and I are going to beat you and Kane senseless ...

Cheers for the fired up Kofi from the WWE Universe ...

KOFI KINGSTON: And then at Vengeance this Sunday ... I am going to beat you, Kane and Big Show and I am going to win the World Heavyweight Championship ... And when I do, Rowdy Roddy Piper is invited to SMACKDOWN to celebrate with me the following week!

The crowd roar as Kofi throws the microphone down beside Punk who is sitting up now and he watches Kofi and Hot Rod leave the stage, both of them waving to the WWE Universe and Kofi clutching his Slammy Award in his hand as he goes ...

JIM ROSS: Could CM Punk have just made the biggest mistake of his career, King, and fired up Kofi Kingston?

JERRY LAWLER: He may have done just that, JR, I want to see Kofi annihilate Punk after those comments! What was wrong with King of the Ring 1994, JR?

JIM ROSS: Err, moving on ... Next up, folks, the WWE Tag Team Championships are on the line ... Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins, a.k.a. the Major Broskis have been on a roll lately ... Tonight, they challenge the champions Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov for the Tag Team Championship. Can they do it?

The camera switches to backstage where Cody Rhodes, with his Slammy Award in his hand, is walking down the corridor. He turns into the locker room where his former partner Drew McIntyre is stood ...

CODY RHODES: So what is this big announcement, Drew? How are you going to start impressing me again?

McIntyre looks up at Rhodes and there is a fierce determination in his eyes ... He does not speak to Rhodes but he does look at the Slammy Award in Cody’s hand ...

DREW McINTYRE: Wait and see, Cody. Tonight, Drew McIntyre begins to get his career right back on track. Just wait ... and see.

The two men continue to look at each other as the camera leaves the locker room and returns to the ring ...

*** RADIO ***



JUSTIN ROBERTS: This match is set for one fall and it is for the WWE Tag Team Championships! Introducing first, at a combined weight of450 pounds ... ZACK RYDER ... CURT HAWKINS ... THE MAJOR BROSKIS!

Ryder and Hawkins head out towards the ring to mild heat although there are some fans of the team in the arena thanks to Ryder’s growing presence on the internet through social media. They slide into the ring and both climb the ropes in the corner ...

*** LA VITORIA E MIA ***



JUSTIN ROBERTS: Their opponents, weighing a combined total of 529 pounds ... they are the WWE Tag Team Champions ... SANTINO MARELLA AND VLADIMIR KOZLOV!

The champions come out with Santino goofing around as usual – to a great reception as usual – and Kozlov looking serious and focused on the match. They enter the ring and the referee takes their title belts from them and holds them up high to show that they are up for grabs in this match tonight ...

TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: VLADIMIR KOZLOV & SANTINO MARELLA (c) vs. MAJOR BROSKIS

An even contest comes to life around the 4:00 mark as Santino Marella, who had been taking some punishment for the last couple of minutes from the pairing of Ryder and Hawkins, used his splits move to avoid a clothesline from Hawkins and used a Spin Kick to take him down. As Curt heads over to make the tag to Zack Ryder, this gives Santino opportunity to tag in the Russian Kozlov who heads into the ring like a bull in a china shop. He almost takes Zack Ryder’s head off with a vicious clothesline before a big boot to the face of Curt Hawkins sends him up and over the top rope and to the outside. Kozlov’s attention heads back to the Long Island Iced Z, Zack Ryder, and he traps him up before unleashing a set of evil headbutts to the chest and leaving Ryder struggling to stay standing. Another big boot from Kozlov, this time to Ryder, here is the pinfall ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Hawkins drags Kozlov out with the leg! *


The referee protests but Hawkins carries on and he slams Kozlov back into the barricades hard before rolling him back under the ropes and into the ring. A stunned Kozlov gets to his feet slowly as Ryder waits behind him, dancing from foot to foot, ready to hit something big here ... Kozlov gets to his feet and turns around and Ryder goes for the ‘Rough Ryder’ but Kozlov manages to throw him off and away ... straight into the path of Santino who is setting up for the Cobra ... Ryder walks straight into it and Santino, to the delight of the WWE Universe, hits the Cobra to the face of Ryder ... The referee orders Santino out of the ring as Kozlov makes the cover on Ryder ... The referee ushers Santino out of the ring and then turns around to see the cover ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Ryder kicks out! *


The crowd can’t believe it and neither can Santino! He complains to the referee but then Curt Hawkins pulls his foot from under him and Santino stumbles off the apron ... Hawkins is waiting for Santino now and as the Italian runs over at him, Curt catches him and hits a spinning spinebuster on the outside of the ring. Kozlov, who has just dragged Ryder to his feet, drops Ryder and goes over towards Hawkins who leaps onto the apron and pulls the Russian down head first onto the top rope ... The choke over the rope staggers Kozlov backwards into the centre of the ring ... ROUGH RYDER! Zack Ryder hits the ‘Rough Ryder’ to the big Russian and then tags in Curt Hawkins who has leapt back onto the apron for the tag ... Hawkins climbs the buckles in the corner of the ring, onto the top rope ... HEAT SEEKING ELBOW! Hawkins hooks the leg ...

WINNER: Major Broskis (5:32)


JUSTIN ROBERTS: Here are your winners ... and the new WWE Tag Team Champions ... ZACK RYDER AND CURT HAWKINS ... THE MAJOR BROSKIS!

JIM ROSS: A major upset, King, we have new WWE Tag Team Champions here on RAW!

JERRY LAWLER: I told you all not to underestimate these guys last week!

JIM ROSS: Santino cannot believe that he was pinned and lost the title!

JERRY LAWLER: It was his fault, he missed with the Cobra and got caught out! New Tag Team Champions, the Major Broskis!

Santino Marella is on his knees with his head in his hands with Vladimir Kozlov stood at his side staring out at the new Tag Team Champions who are backing away up the ramp with their new Tag Team Championship title belts ... Ryder makes the Long Island sign with his hands before holding his title belt high and shouting out to the WWE Universe ... ‘Woo Woo Woo ... You know it!’

********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********

*** MEDAL ***



The crowd go wild as Kurt Angle heads out onto the stage with a huge beaming smile on his face ... The American Olympic Hero stands at the top of the ramp dressed in jeans and a shirt tonight as he is not scheduled to compete but he does have his Olympic gold medals draped around his neck ... He holds his hands up and points to the sky and the red, white and blue fireworks explode behind him as he looks around the arena before heading back over to the Slammy Award stand on the stage ... He heads over and collects a microphone as Michael Cole introduces him to the WWE Universe ...

MICHAEL COLE: Here to present the next Slammy Award ... The American Hero ... KURT ANGLE!

The crowd cheer loud as Angle holds his hand up in appreciation of their support and the WWE Universe begin to chant ‘Welcome back!’ to him ... Angle looks delighted to be back home in the WWE and he prepares to address the WWE Universe for the first time in over four years since his 2006 departure ...

KURT ANGLE: Ladies and Gentlemen, your Olympic Hero, Kurt Angle, has returned to the WWE!

The cheers in the arena show Kurt how happy the WWE Universe are to have him back and he smiles once more ...

KURT ANGLE: Now, I do have a Slammy Award to present in a moment ... but before I do, let me address the WWE Championship match this Sunday at Vengeance ...

Angle looks round as the crowd cheer once more ...

KURT ANGLE: This Sunday at WWE Vengeance, Wade Barrett will defend the WWE Championship against ... me, the American Hero, Kurt Angle! Now I am delighted to be back here in the WWE, ever since I left in 2006, I have watched guys who weren’t fit to lace my boots holding the WWE Championship, guys who couldn’t hold a candle to me with the World Heavyweight Championship ...

Angle shakes his head before continuing ...

KURT ANGLE: But then, at Survivor Series, I saw something that shocked me. I saw Wade Barrett become the WWE Champion ... without even winning a match!

Boos ring out around the arena ...

KURT ANGLE: Justin Gabriel pinned the team-mate of the WWE Champion and ... and Wade Barrett got the WWE Championship? How the hell does that work? To be WWE Champion, I thought that you had to show guts, determination, perseverance ... So I decided that I had to come back to the WWE to remind everybody of exactly what a champion really should be ...

Cheers for Angle who is pumped up and ready to prove to the world that Wade Barrett is not deserving of the title ...

KURT ANGLE: So when the RAW General Manager Shawn Michaels offered me the chance to come back to the WWE and be part of the RAW roster with a shot at earning a place in the WWE Championship match this Sunday at Vengeance ... I had to take it. I came back and I won the Number 1 contenders Elimination Match and earned the right to challenge for the WWE Championship against Wade Barrett this Sunday!

The crowd cheer once more and Angle seems to be intent on winning the title this Sunday ...

KURT ANGLE: Wade Barrett, the WWE Champion against the American Olympic Hero, your very own Kurt Angle ... And I promise that I will give every drop of sweat and blood that I have in my body this Sunday to win the match, to win that WWE Championship and restore it back to the glory it deserves ...

More cheers from the WWE Universe who are on Angle’s side heading into the pay-per-view this Sunday ...

KURT ANGLE: Now, I reckon that my return last week was pretty special but I am here now to present the Slammy Award for the ‘WWE Comeback of the Year’ for 2010 ... Let’s see who is in contention for the award ...

A video is played showing three big returns this year on the titantron ... It begins in January 2010 at the Royal Rumble with Edge’s return to win the Royal Rumble and earn himself a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 26 ... This is followed by Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart returning to Monday Night RAW in the spring as the new General Manager of RAW ... Finally, the return of the Undertaker at Summerslam in the casket when he had been injured on Memorial Day by his brother Kane ... The cameras return to Kurt Angle who looks impressed ...

KURT ANGLE: All fantastic returns ... although not as good as mine last week!

The crowd cheer in agreement ...

KURT ANGLE: But let’s find out who the winner of the Slammy Award will be ... The winner of the ‘WWE Comeback of the Year’ for 2010 is ...

Silence in the arena as Angle makes them wait ...

KURT ANGLE: The winner is ... EGDE at the 2010 Royal Rumble!

There are some boos in the arena after the actions of Edge in recent months ...

KURT ANGLE: Now, as you all know, General Manager Shawn Michaels suspended Edge at the Survivor Series ... So he cannot be here tonight to accept the award ... However, the WWE did catch up with him earlier today at home in Toronto ...

Eyes turn to the big screen where the face of Edge appears on the titantron ...

EDGE: Spear!

The crowd join in with Edge’s ‘Spear!’ chant ...

EDGE: Spear! Spear! Spear, spear, spear! Wow, how lame was that? For a few short months, I sucked up to all of you, chanting ‘Spear!’ just to hear you chant along with me ... Looking back, it makes me sick to see how far I was willing to go to get your support ...

Boos and jeers for Edge’s comments ...

EDGE: You know, Shawn Michaels suspended me at Survivor Series for refusing to lead Team RAW to victory ... Well, I have a question for him. What did I have to gain from leading RAW to a win? Nothing, that is what I had to gain. If we had won, RAW would have taken another star from SMACKDOWN, another guy for Shawn to favour in front of me. I did what was right for one person, Edge, the Rated R Superstar ...

Edge smirks on the big screen ...

EDGE: I won this Slammy Award for my comeback at the Royal Rumble ... but in six days time, my suspension is over and I am cleared to return to the WWE at Vengeance. And I will be there in Fort Lauderdale ... I will be back ...

Some cheers for the return of Edge but plenty of boos as well ...

EDGE: ... And when I return, I will be having words with the RAW General Manager about his actions and about the way he treats me ... When I return, HBK better watch his step ... I’ll see you all on Sunday!

‘Metalingus’ echoes around the arena as Edge continues to smile and smirk on the titantron ...

JIM ROSS: Things could get very interesting this Sunday, King, when the Rated R Superstar, Edge, returns to confront the General Manager!

JERRY LAWLER: You saw what HBK did this evening to Sheamus, he isn’t scared to get involved. There could be fireworks when Edge returns to RAW!

The camera switches to the interview pit where a nervous looking Josh Mathews is stood with the former World Heavyweight Champion, Kane, who is looking angry after the events at the conclusion of SMACKDOWN last Friday ...

JOSH MATHEWS: Kane, on Friday night, we heard the owner of the WWE, Chip Butty, demand that SMACKDOWN General Manager Teddy Long stand up to you ... and he did just that as he made a Fatal Four Way Match between yourself, World Champion CM Punk, Kofi Kingston and the Big Show at Vengeance ...

Kane grabs the microphone from Mathews and roughly shoves the interviewer away ... Josh Mathews is not waiting round to find out what Kane has to say and he leaves Kane to speak to the WWE Universe ...

KANE: On Friday night, Teddy Long made the biggest mistake of his life. Instead of making the match that I told him to make, he made a Fatal Four Way match for the World Championship at Vengeance ... Teddy Long, you will regret the day you ever ‘stood up’ to the Devil’s Favourite Demon ...

There are boos ringing out in the arena ...

KANE: You see, Teddy Long, you forgot that you promised me any match that I wanted to make on SMACKDOWN last week and next week. Last week, I forced CM Punk and the Big Show to face each other with me as the special referee so that I could take out the Big Show ... And this week, I have another very special match in mind ...

The crowd are pouring down the heat on Kane now ...

KANE: ... On SMACKDOWN this week, it will be a Street Fight ... Kane ... against ... Teddy Long!

Kane throws down the microphone and he laughs out loud as RAW heads into another commercial break ...

********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


COMING SOON!

********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


RAW returns with a sombre looking Jim Ross and Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler sat at the announce table ... A replay of Kane’s sinister statement from before the break is replayed, on SMACKDOWN this week, it will be Kane against Teddy Long ... in a Street Fight!

JERRY LAWLER: JR, someone has to stop this, Chip Butty cannot allow this to happen!

JIM ROSS: I hope something stops it, King, Teddy Long does not deserve to be in this situation, he works hard as the General Manager of SMACKDOWN and he does a good job ... He is NOT a wrestler and he certainly shouldn’t have to participate in a Street Fight against Kane!

*** LONGHORN ***



JUSTIN ROBERTS: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome ... one of the WWE Legend Mentors for the new series of NXT ... JBL!

JBL’s limosine pulls into the arena and when the driver lets him out of the back of the limo, JBL is all smiles as he steps out wearing an expensive looking suit as well as his traditional cowboy hat as well ... As usual, JBL expects the WWE Universe to be happy to see him but they’re not as the boos and the jeers show ... JBL makes his way into the ring where he waves to the crowd as if they love him ... He then makes his way out of the ring and takes a seat alongside Jim Ross and Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler ...

JIM ROSS: Well, it looks like JBL is joining us here at ringside, King ...

JERRY LAWLER: What a treat that will be, King! Welcome, JBL!

JBL: You know, I heard that you guys needed a little bit of help out here so the Wrestling God decided to come down and grace you with his presence ...

JIM ROSS: JBL, last week, you found out the name of your first WWE superstar for the third series of NXT ... What are your thoughts of having Kaval as your first guy on Team JBL?

JBL: My thoughts on Kaval? I’m not happy about it, I’ve lodged an official complaint about it ... I am a ‘Wrestling God’ and I shouldn’t have to put up with sub-standard people on Team JBL. I’m out here right now for this next match though, I am here to see who I get as my second Team JBL guy ... Let’s face it, it can’t get any worse that Kaval can it?

JIM ROSS: Well, I don’t know if I agree with that, JBL but nevertheless, this next match will feature the next two WWE superstars who will be appearing on NXT Series 3 ... The winner of the match will get to choose whether he will be on Team JBL ... or Team Rock. The loser will end up on the other team ...

JBL: Shut your face, Ross, let’s find out who the two guys are ...

*** CHAVITO ARDIENTE ***



JBL: Oh, please ... Chavo Guerrero?

JIM ROSS: The Mexican Warrior is here to begin to save his career in the WWE, can he get on the right track tonight and choose his mentor?

Chavo Guerrero heads for the ring to cheers from the WWE Universe who respect his long career and are hoping that he can prolong it on NXT ... Chavo slides under the rope and he glares at JBL with an intense look on his face, Chavo doesn’t look as if he likes JBL very much ...

JUSTIN ROBERTS: The following contest is set for one fall. From El Paso, Texas, weighing 215 pounds ... CHAVO GUERRERO!

JBL: So who will be the second guy in the match? Let’s hope he is better than Chavo ...

*** BROKEN DREAMS ***



JBL: That’s better, Drew McIntyre ... The ‘Chosen One’ with something to prove ...

JBL stands up and he begins applauding McIntyre as he approaches the ring slowly ...

JIM ROSS: Earlier tonight, Cody Rhodes told us that Drew McIntyre had a plan to get his career back on track and it seems, King, like winning NXT is the way that Drew sees himself going ...

JERRY LAWLER: Risky move though, JR, five of the eight participants on NXT will be fired from the WWE!

JBL: I doubt that Drew McIntyre has anything to worry about, two of guys who will be fired are already decided ... Chavo Guerrero and Kaval, how are they going to survive?

Drew McIntyre stands in the ring and he points up high as he looks determined to show that he is getting back on track starting tonight with a victory over Chavo Guerrero ...

JUSTIN ROBERTS: And from Ayr, Scotland ... weighing 256 pounds ... DREW McINTYRE!

JIM ROSS: Drew McIntyre vs. Chavo Guerrero, remember that the winner gets to choose JBL or The Rock as his NXT mentor ...

CHAVO GUERRERO vs. DREW McINTYRE

The crowd favourite in this match is Chavo Guerrero who gets a huge pop when he takes Drew down to the mat and follows it with a trip to the top rope ... Pointing up to the heavens gets the pop and then just as he is ready to attempt a ‘Frog Splash,’ Drew moves out of the way to the dismay of the WWE Universe who follow this with a loud ‘Eddie!’ chant in respect of the late, great Eddie Guerrero. Chavo jumps down from the ropes and on hearing this chant, heads over quickly towards Drew as he beats his chest for his Uncle Eddie before suplexing McIntyre who had dominated the early stages of the match with his power moves. However, Chavo is now in control as he rolls over from the suplex and hooks the legs of Drew in a cover ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Drew kicks out! *


Chavo locks Drew into a reverse headlock immediately and looks around the arena where the WWE Universe are cheering him on loudly now ... Chavo hits another snap suplex but this time he holds on and swivels his hips before getting back up with Drew still in the headlock ... snap suplex, swivel of the hips, up we go ... snap suplex ... THREE AMIGOS! The WWE Universe love it and they chant along with the referee as he counts Drew’s shoulders down on the mat once again ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Drew kicks out at the last second! *


JBL: Listen to all these morons cheering for that idiot, Chavo Guerrero! The guy has to copy his Uncle Eddie’s moves because he can’t come up with his own and these people clap their hands like seals ... Come on, Drew!

Chavo lifts himself up onto the middle rope and then dives off at Drew to try and hit a Tornado DDT ... He swivels around Drew and drives his head down into the mat once again ... Chavo Guerrero with the cover once again ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Drew kicks out once again! *


Drew staggers to his feet and heads for the corner with his back turned to Chavo who rushes over and hits a drop kick into the back of the Scotsman who collides hard with the turnbuckles as well ... Chavo reaches up and rolls him back onto the mat, roll up pinfall ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Drew kicks out again! *


Chavo is looking a little frustrated but he lifts Drew up once more and he hits a powerslam that leaves Drew perfectly placed once again ... Chavo is up the ropes, quick as a flash, ready for the ‘Frog Splash’ again ... Chavo sails off the top rope heading for McIntyre ... who moves at the last second and Chavo collides heavy with the mat. The crowd boo in disappointment as McIntyre gets to his feet and recovers a little ... Chavo reaches his feet and BAM! A Big Boot from Drew McIntyre connects with the side of Chavo’s head and sends him down to the mat ... Just like that, Drew is back in control of the match ... Drew takes a second to completely recover and then he drags Chavo up and shoots him into the ropes ... Tilt a whirl backbreaker to the knee of McIntyre and Chavo writhes on the mat in agony as McIntyre gets a look of confidence on his face ... He drags Chavo up and sets for the Future Shock DDT ... Boos ring out around the arena but Chavo manages to back body drop Drew over him as a counter ... Chavo is kneeling on the mat now, the back body drop took a lot of effort and he recovers at the same time as Drew who is back to his feet as well ... Chavo swings at Drew with a European Uppercut but Drew ducks and then counters with a double knee Arm Breaker that leaves Chavo on the mat once more. Drew lifts him up again and this time he hits the big finisher ... FUTURE SHOCK DDT from Drew McIntyre ...

WINNER: Drew McIntyre (6:12)


JUSTIN ROBERTS: Here is your winner ... DREW McINTYRE!

Drew McIntyre signals to the timekeeper to pass him a microphone as Chavo Guerrero rolls out of the ring defeated ... JBL stands up and applauds Drew, desperate to secure Drew as one of his WWE superstars for the NXT show ... Drew looks out into the arena still looking determined to get his career back on track ...

DREW McINTYRE: My name is Drew McIntyre ... I am the ‘Chosen One’ ... On NXT Season 3, I will get my career back on track, I will beat every guy on that show and I will leave WrestleMania 27 as the NXT winner and with a future shot at the title ...

Drew focuses on the announce table and he points towards JBL ...

DREW McINTYRE: And that is the man that is going to make sure I win! Drew McIntyre is joining Team JBL!

JBL looks delighted with the news and he throws his headset down and slides into the ring to shake hands and embrace Drew McIntyre as the WWE Universe jeers ... That means that Chavo Guerrero will be on Team Rock for NXT Season 3 which starts next week ... JBL lifts Drew’s hand in victory as RAW heads into another commercial ...

********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


BEGINS NEXT WEEK!

********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


RAW returns with Kofi Kingston and the Big Show already stood in the ring discussing their strategy for the upcoming match ... At the announce table, there is a new addition as well with SMACKDOWN announcer Mick Foley joining Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler for this match between the four top stars from SMACKDOWN ...

JUSTIN ROBERTS: The following contest is set for one fall ... Introducing first, in the ring and representing SMACKDOWN ... at a combined weight of 706 pounds ... KOFI KINGSTON ... and the BIG SHOW!





Big Show and Kofi salute the cheers of the fans before an explosion signals the arrival of the first of their opponents ...

*** MAN ON FIRE ***



The former World Heavyweight Champion heads out with an evil smile on his face despite the jeers ...

JIM ROSS: Here he is, guys, the former World Champion. I cannot get over what we heard from this man earlier tonight ...

JERRY LAWLER: What a RAW we have seen tonight, JR, and if Kane gets his way, SMACKDOWN threatens to be ... well, scary is the word I think.

MICK FOLEY: I have a very uneasy feeling about this Friday night, King, Kane vs. Teddy Long in a Street Fight?

JIM ROSS: I’m sure that the owner of the WWE will step in, Mick, he has to!

JERRY LAWLER: JR, it was Teddy Long who promised Kane that he would get to choose the main event of the two SMACKDOWN shows. If you look at it like that, it is his fault really ...

JIM ROSS: Give over, King, how can you say that? Teddy Long is a General Manager, not a wrestler!

MICK FOLEY: Friday could be a monumental night in the history of SMACKDOWN and the WWE, JR, I don’t think anybody will want to miss it ...

Kane stands at the bottom of the ramp and he crashes down his arms and the corner posts explode with red fire ... As soon as this happens, the music changes ...

*** THIS FIRE BURNS ***



JUSTIN ROBERTS: Their opponents ... weighing in at a combined weight of 545 pounds ... KANE ... and the World Heavyweight Champion ... C.M. PUNK!

Punk heads down to the bottom of the ramp and he stands and stares into the eyes of his partner, Kane, who looks at the World Heavyweight Title around the waist of Punk ... A maniacal grin passes over Kane’s face and Punk looks nervous for a second before they both head into the ring ready for the match ... Punk’s title belt is passed to the timekeeper and the match can begin ...

BIG SHOW & KOFI KINGSTON vs. CM PUNK & KANE

An excellent start to the match featuring back and forth action from all four guys as they showcase their talents ahead of the big Fatal Four Way World Championship match at Vengeance ... Champion CM Punk and the demonic Kane finally get Kofi Kingston cornered and they try to work him over and keep the mammoth Big Show out of the ring ... Kane tags in and he corners Kofi in the corner (obviously) and hits a volley of thunderous uppercut thrusts to the Ghanaian who is reduced into a heap at the feet of the Big Red Monster. Punk looks on with a smug smile although he still looks nervous about the presence of the man who held the World Title for so long before him. Kane drags Kofi out of the corner and picks him up with both hands in a choke ... Big Show starts to step through the ropes and the referee interrupts but this allows Kane to continue to choke Kofi in the corner ... The referee eventually gets Big Show out and then orders Kane to stop choking Kofi so Kane hits a chokebomb to Kingston that leaves him sprawled on the mat ... Struggling, Kofi starts to inch towards the outstretched hand of the Big Show but Kane comes off the ropes and hits a low dropkick to the head of Kofi before crashing a huge clothesline over the ropes to Big Show that knocks him down to the outside ... Kane tags in CM Punk and then drags Kofi up and throws him back into the corner ... Punk hits a high knee in the corner and follows this up with a Bulldog to Kofi before covering him for the pinfall ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* A weak kick out from Kofi! *


Twisting Kofi’s arm behind his back, Punk drags him to his feet before hitting the Pepsi Twist clothesline that sends Kofi crashing down once again ... Kofi is looking in all kinds of trouble here as Punk signals that it is time to ‘Go to Sleep’ to the jeers of the crowd ... They continue to jeer the World Champion as he lifts Kofi up onto his shoulders ... Kofi suddenly wakes up a little and he wriggles down Punk’s back and rolls him up ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Punk kicks out! *


Annoyed that Kofi won’t stay down, Punk hits a series of hard kicks to the Ghanaian as he attempts to get to his feet, a roundhouse to the head crashes Kofi down to the mat once again. Punk drags him up once more, lifts him onto his shoulders and prepares ... GO TO SLEEP! CM Punk has hit the ‘Go to Sleep’ and he falls down on Kofi, hooks the leg for the pin ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Big Show drags Punk from Kofi just in time! *


Punk gets to his feet just as Show winds up for a huge knockout punch and Punk drops to his knees and rolls away before he can be clobbered in the skull ... On his knees, Punk retreats to the corner as Show advances on him. However, Kane is also in the ring now and he rushes over and dropkicks Show in the knee, the bad knee that Show hurt on SMACKDOWN the night he won the title from Kane and then lost it immediately to CM Punk ... With Show staggered, Punk hits kicks to the knee as well until Big Show drops down to his knees and then Punk hits the Shining Wizard kick to the head of Big Show ... However, Show is not the legal man and as Kane tries to push him out of the ring with his feet, Kofi is back up and attacking Punk instead. The two legal men go at it and Kofi forces Punk back into the corner of the ring ... Kofi leaps up onto the shoulders of CM Punk in the corner and he begins to pummel at the face of the World Champion, Kofi looks as fired up as ever, but Kane suddenly grabs him by the hair and drags him down off the shoulders of Punk ... Wobbling a little on landing, Kane grabs Kofi by the throat ... CHOKE SLAM!

Jeers echo around the arena as the referee demands that Kane get out of the ring immediately ... The two legal men are now in the ring with Punk down on his knees in the corner after the quickfire assault from Kofi but the Ghanaian is down on the mat on his back after Kane’s huge chokeslam ... Punk recovers slowly and then crawls over to make the cover ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Kofi kicks out! *


Punk cannot believe it and he holds his head in his hands. Kane offers the tag and Punk accepts allowing the Big Red Monster to stalk after Kofi as he heads for his corner looking for a tag. However, Big Show is not there yet, he is still crawling back to the corner after the Shining Wizard kick from CM Punk moments ago ... Kane drags Kofi away from the corner and shoots him into the ropes before hitting a sidewalk slam to Kofi ... Cover from Kane ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Kick out from Kofi! *


Kane climbs to the outside of the ring and heads for the top rope ... He waits for Kofi to get to his feet before launching off the top turnbuckle and hitting a huge clothesline to Kofi that crashes him down to the mat again. Big Show is back in place for a tag now but he can only watch as Kane goes for the cover once again ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Kofi kicks out! *


Kane looks annoyed now and he cuts across his throat to signal that it is time for something big ... Some of the crowd cheer this action as they link it to the Phenom, the Undertaker, but others boo the use of it by Kane ... Kane lifts Kofi up and turns him upside down ready to hit the Tombstone Piledriver to Kingston ... The crowd are going wild with dismay but then suddenly the lights in the arena go out and we are plunged into complete darkness ... The sounds of wind blowing through the arena are heard and the WWE Universe are going mad ... waiting for the Gong to sound out ... but there is nothing ...


MICK FOLEY: What is going on? Is the Undertaker here?

JIM ROSS: The lights are off, that means only one thing, King!

JERRY LAWLER: This can only mean trouble, JR!

As suddenly as they went off, the lights are back on with Kane stood in the ring looking round with a look of fear on his face. He is mouthing that he got rid of the Undertaker, that he destroyed him ... Big Show is also looking around the ring with interest whilst CM Punk is stood in front of the announce table with a look of worry on his face ... Kofi is on the mat recovering where he must have fell when Kane dropped him ... It is clear that Kane didn’t hit the Tombstone ... Warily, Kane heads back towards Kofi and drags him to his feet but Kofi is now capable of hitting some offence of his own ... Kofi throws some stiff punches to the head of Kane and staggers him before springboarding off the ropes and hitting a diving crossbody that takes Kane down to the mat ... Kofi makes a tag to Big Show but then he turns back to Kane ... TROUBLE IN PARADISE connects with Kane! Kane wobbles around ... KNOCKOUT PUNCH from the Big Show! Kofi is out of the ring, Big Show makes the cover ...

WINNER: Big Show and Kofi Kingston (9:38)


JUSTIN ROBERTS: Here are your winners ... BIG SHOW and KOFI KINGSTON!

The WWE Universe go mad with delight as the music of Big Show plays through the arena ... Show and Kofi embrace in the ring in celebration whilst Kane is laid out cold from the huge punch from the Big Show ... Both Show and Kofi fix their eyes on CM Punk who has taken his World Championship belt and is now edging around the ring and up the ramp with a look of concern on his face ...

JERRY LAWLER: What a finish! If I were CM Punk, I wouldn’t be planning on walking out of Fort Lauderdale with that World Championship belt!

JIM ROSS: But who will walk out as the World Heavyweight Champion, King?

JERRY LAWLER: I don’t know for sure but I can’t argue with the claims of the Big Show right now!

MICK FOLEY: That’s right, King, that knockout punch of Big Show is a game changer ... If he hits that at Vengeance, Big Show will be the World Heavyweight Champion regardless of what the rest can do!

JIM ROSS: It’s been a delight to have you here tonight, Mick!

MICK FOLEY: Well, I’m not just here to commentate on this SMACKDOWN match, JR! I’m also here to present a Slammy Award!

Foley removes his headset and picks up a microphone as he heads away from the announce table ... Kofi and Big Show shake hands with Foley as they walk up the ramp but as Kofi and Show head out through the curtain, Foley turns towards the Slammy Award stand ... Kane staggers up the ramp and gives Foley a look of disdain as he leaves and then Foley is ready to speak out ...

MICK FOLEY: It turns out that the WWE would quite like me to present the next Slammy Award ... Atlanta, Georgia!

Cheap pop for Foley who smiles a wide grin as the crowd in Atlanta cheer for him ...

MICK FOLEY: So what I’d like to do right now is introduce the winner of the WWE’s ‘OMG! Moment of the Year’ for 2010 ...

A loud ‘Foley!’ chant begins in the arena and Foley is forced to stop for a minute and salute the crowd who are giving him love right now ...

MICK FOLEY: Thank you, thank you. You see, the WWE is full of ‘OMG!’ moments ... hell, I’ve been involved in enough of them ... Hell in a Cell in 1998?

Huge cheers for Foley who went off the top of the cell twice in that match!

MICK FOLEY: What about the Royal Rumble in 1999 and the ‘I Quit!’ match with Rock?

More cheers for Foley ...

MICK FOLEY: And who can forget my Hardcore match with Edge at WrestleMania 22?

The applause and cheers for Mick Foley are deafening at his recall of these amazing moments in WWE history ...

MICK FOLEY: But you see, in 2010, Mick Foley hasn’t been involved in an ‘OMG!’ moment ...

Some ‘fake’ boos from the crowd ...

MICK FOLEY: ... Maybe I’ll have one in 2011?!

Loud cheers for Foley and a chant of ‘One more match!’ erupts from the WWE Universe here in Atlanta ... Foley smiles but doesn’t respond ...

MICK FOLEY: Ha! So here we go then, the 2010 WWE ‘OMG! Moment of the Year’ Slammy Award goes to ...

A hush falls over the arena ...

MICK FOLEY: ... THE ARRIVAL OF THE NEXUS!

*** WE ARE ONE ***



Out walks Wade Barrett with the WWE Championship belt draped over his shoulder and the rest of the Nexus – Skip Sheffield, Heath Slater, David Otunga and Ezekiel Jackson, the newest member of the Nexus – following behind him. Foley hands the award to Barrett who looks at him with a look of disgust before brushing past him towards the Slammy Award stand ... Foley chuckles to himself as the rest of the Nexus file past him and Barrett takes his place at the stand ...

WADE BARRETT: Way back in July this year, the Nexus arrived here on RAW and we ...

MICK FOLEY: Hold on a minute, Wade!

Barrett is interrupted as he gets started by Foley to cheers from the WWE Universe ...

MICK FOLEY: I almost forgot something, if you don’t mind ...

It is clear that Barrett does mind and his Nexus team-mates flex their muscles and look threateningly at the WWE Legend that is Mick Foley ...

MICK FOLEY: ... Atlanta, Georgia!

More huge cheers for the mention of the home town ...

MICK FOLEY: HAVE A NICE DAY!

Foley takes off as the Nexus members take a step towards him and he is waving and cheering and celebrating as he disappears out of view ...

WADE BARRETT: You know what? It seems as if old, past it, has been former WWE superstars are all the rage right now here ... We’ve got Mick Foley tonight as well as the wheeling out of people like Bret Hart ... Rowdy Roddy Piper ... None of those guys are fit to be on the same show as myself and the Nexus ...

Boos and jeers and a chant of ‘You Suck!’ aimed at Barrett and his cronies ...

WADE BARRETT: And, of course, who can forget Kurt Angle? Last week, the so called Olympic Hero returned to RAW and earned the chance to face me for the WWE Championship at Vengeance?

Cheers for Angle in the arena but a smirk from Wade Barrett ...

WADE BARRETT: An American hero? An Olympic hero? In 1996, Kurt Angle won the gold medal for the USA ... But Kurt, that was amateur wrestling, not the WWE. So you came to the WWE and you had a huge impact ... in his first year here in the WWE, Kurt Angle won every title in the business including this title that I have over my shoulder ...

Barrett holds the WWE Championship up in the air ...

WADE BARRETT: Kurt Angle, WWE Champion, exactly one year after his debut in the WWE. People said that it would never ever be done again, that nobody would ever win the WWE Championship that quickly again. But guess what?

Barrett smirks and looks to his Nexus mates who nod their heads ...

WADE BARRETT: They were wrong. They were wrong because in July, the Nexus arrived on RAW and destroyed everything in our path. We took out Cena, we took out Punk, we took out the announce team, we took out the ringside team ... we completely destroyed the ring and we destroyed what the WWE stood for ... We continued to cause mayhem and destruction, week after week, until finally we were given WWE contracts in August of this year. Fast forward three months, THREE months ... and here I stand, Wade Barrett, leader of the most fearsome group of men to ever set foot in the WWE ... and here I stand as the WWE Champion!

Boos around the arena from the WWE Universe who know that Barrett did not ‘win’ the title, Justin Gabriel won it for him ...

WADE BARRETT: Now, over time, we have cut the waste in the Nexus. We have got rid of Daniel Bryan ... we took out Darren Young ... we took out Michael Tarver ... and we got rid of Justin Gabriel. We brought in the most powerful wrecking machine that the WWE has ever seen in Ezekiel Jackson ...

Jackson flexes his muscles ...

WADE BARRETT: ... so take a look at the Nexus ... every man, woman and child in the WWE Universe, every man back there in the WWE locker room, look at the Nexus. We are the most dominant force that the WWE has ever seen ... and you haven’t seen nothing yet ... Kurt Angle ... at Vengeance, your dream comeback will turn into a nightmare ...

Barrett holds the WWE Championship aloft once more ...

WADE BARRETT: ... Because ... You’re either Nexus ... or you’re against us!

‘We are One’ plays again as Wade Barrett and the Nexus hold their hands up high, the title belt in the hand of Barrett, as RAW heads into another commercial break ...

JIM ROSS: Threatening words from Wade Barrett, King, we haven’t seen nothing yet?

JERRY LAWLER: That is what the man said, JR ... That doesn’t sound good for the WWE!

JIM ROSS: It doesn’t sound good at all, King. Next up, the main event ... The Miz faces John Morrison, one on one ... NEXT!

********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********

********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


*** AIN’T NO MAKE BELIEVE ***



The slo-mo camera is switched on and John Morrison heads out and holds his hand up in the air ... His fur coat billows in the air and he heads for the ring looking determined to shut his former partner up once and for all ...

JUSTIN ROBERTS: This match is set for one fall. Introducing first, from Los Angeles, California, weighing 224 pounds ... JOHN MORRISON!

Morrison enters the ring to a good reception and he stands on the middle turnbuckle to salute the fans as his music continues to play ...

JIM ROSS: We seem to be saying every week how much improvement that this man is making, King, how far can he go?

JERRY LAWLER: John Morrison is heading for the top, JR! He promised last week that he would win the Royal Rumble and then go to WrestleMania to become the WWE Champion and I don’t think that is out of the question!

JIM ROSS: You think he could win the Royal Rumble?

JERRY LAWLER: Why not, JR? We’ve seen our General Manager win it before from Number 1 – and I see a lot of similarities between HBK and John Morrison!

*** AWESOME – I CAME TO PLAY! ***



JUSTIN ROBERTS: His opponent, from Cleveland, Ohio, weighing 231 pounds ... THE MIZ!

JIM ROSS: Here comes the man, King, who is holding the ‘Money in the Bank’ contract for a guaranteed title shot whenever he wants before the ‘Money in the Bank’ pay-per-view next Summer ...

JERRY LAWLER: Miz has held that contract now for almost half a year, I wish he’d get on with it and cash it in!

JIM ROSS: Miz says that when he cashes it in he is guaranteed to become the WWE Champion ...

JERRY LAWLER: It is hard to argue with the Miz on that one, JR, I can argue with Miz about a lot of things but not that!

JIM ROSS: Maybe he will cash it in this Sunday at Vengeance?

JERRY LAWLER: He might do, JR!

Miz enters the ring holding the briefcase with Alec Riley following him as usual ... He places the case down and then holds his hands up in the sky before looking out to the WWE Universe with a cocky look on his face ... He fixes a stare at John Morrison and smirks whilst mouthing ‘Janetty’ to him ...

JIM ROSS: For months now, Miz has been taunting John Morrison, his former partner, about being the ‘Janetty’ of their team, a reference to Marty Janetty, the less successful of the Rockers tag team when they split up ...

JERRY LAWLER: You can’t argue with the success that the other member of that team has had, JR!

JIM ROSS: The one and only Shawn Michaels, the RAW General Manager!

JOHN MORRISON vs. THE MIZ

The match begins with both men feeling each other out and countering each other’s big moves due to knowing each other so well ... Alex Riley tries to distract Morrison on several occasions as he attempts to give Miz an advantage in this match but it isn’t working as the referee prevents it every time ... However, Miz finally gets control when Morrison hits the ropes and Riley catches his foot to trip Morrison up behind the referee’s back ... The boos of the crowd echo around the arena and the referee has stern words with Riley as Miz takes control with a foot on the throat of his former partner ... The referee turns and Miz releases Morrison but it has had the desired effect with Morrison now struggling and gasping as he gets to his feet. With his attention not on the Miz now, he is easy pickings as he staggers into the corner and the Miz rushes over and hits a jumping clothesline as he swings his legs out of the ring ... Miz stands on the middle rop straddling Morrison and he pummels away at his face over and over again until the last moment before the referee is about to disqualify him. Miz stands back and admires his handy work as Morrison falls to his knees in the corner of the ring ... Miz waits for Morrison to get to his feet and then runs over and hits a swinging neckbreaker that causes a loud gasp from the crowd before Miz makes the cover ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Morrison kicks out! *


With Morrison turning onto his front whilst down on the mat, Miz straddles over him and locks in the Camel Clutch to jeers from the crowd ... Miz is sat on the small of Morrison’s back and he is dragging Morrison back by the chin as he tries to put the pressure on him to tap out ... Morrison is in agony but he is not giving up and he starts to inch his way towards the ropes in front of him ... The crowd are willing him on and it looks as if he is going to make it so, with Morrison’s fingertips centimetres awayt from the ropes, Miz uses the surprise factor to release Morrison and he starts stomping away at the lower back over and over again. The referee tries to stop Miz when Morrison gets in the ropes but the damage is being done here ... Miz turns Morrison over and springboards off the ropes with a leg drop across the chest and neck of Morrison ... Cover from the Miz ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* A weaker kick out from Morrison! *


As Morrison gets up slowly, Miz locks in a facelock before pulling him down into a backbreaker first, Miz’ knee driving into the lower back of Morrison, and then up and into a neckbreaker once again. This combination looks painful and Miz cockily stands up and wipes his hands as the crowd boo ... Miz steps back and he sets himself here ... The crowd are jeering as Miz prepares for the Skull Crushing Finale ... Up gets Morrison and Miz locks him in with the arms and goes to drive him face first into the mat ... However, Morrison fights out and manages to create a gap so he can springboard from the rope and hits a tilt-a-whirl DDT that crashes Miz down onto his head ... Morrison is slow to react though after the punishment that his lower back has taken and he hooks Miz’ leg far too late ...

* 1 *
* Miz kicks out with ease! *


Morrison grabs Miz as he gets up and tries a roundhouse kick but Miz ducks and shoots Morrison into the ropes before hitting a spinning sidewalk slam to him instead. A cover from Miz ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Morrison kicks out! *


Once more, Miz sets up and is preparing for the Skull Crushing Finale but again Morrison fights out and this time he shoves Miz away. Miz reacts angrily and flies at Morrison looking for a clothesline and it is easily avoided by the ‘Monday Night Delight’ who counters Miz off the ropes with a running calf kick that sends Miz down to the mat. Morrison takes a second to recover a little although he is still holding his back ... As Miz gets up, Morrison springboards off the ropes and hits a flying Chuck Kick that catches Miz perfectly ... Riley encourages Miz to roll out to the outside and he manages to do so but Morrison follows. With the referee complaining at Miz and Morrison to get back into the ring and ordering Riley away from both men, Miz tries to escape from Morrison but he catches him near the announce tables. Morrison whips Miz into the steel ring steps and Miz clatters into them before Morrison can rush over and hit a running knee strike to Miz as he rests against the steel steps ... If the action were in the ring, it would be over now but it isn’t in the ring and Morrison has to get Miz into the ring to defeat him ... Morrison drags Miz up and rolls him just into the corner of the ring ... As he tries to follow, Riley drags him back and Morrison is forced to kick Riley hard in the chest from the ring apron to stagger him back so he can get back into the ring ... Miz is laid flat on his back and Morrison hits a standing shooting star press to his former partner ... Cover from Morrison ...

* 1 *
* 2 *
* Miz just kicks out! *


Morrison gets to his feet and surveys the situation and the gleam of light in his eyes tells you what is coming next ... He drags Miz into the corner and turns to face the turnbuckles as the WWE Universe go wild ... Morrison jumps up split legged onto the top rope in the corner ... STARSHIP PAIN! Morrison surely has Miz beaten now ...

* Riley lifts Miz’ foot onto the bottom rope! *


The referee jeer but the referee has spotted the foot on the rope so he cannot count Miz’ shoulders down for the three count. Morrison complains to the official and turns his back on Miz as he does ... Neither the referee nor Morrison see Riley slide a steel chair into the ring to the Miz ... Miz stands up as Morrison gives up his protest and clutches his head in frustration ... BAM! MIZ WITH THE STEEL CHAIR TO THE BACK OF JOHN MORRISON! Morrison crashes down clutching his back but the referee signals for the bell as Miz launches another shot to the back of Morrison with the steel chair ...

WINNER: John Morrison (DQ 7:37)


JUSTIN ROBERTS: The winner of the match ... as a result of a disqualification ... JOHN MORRISON!

Once the referee has disqualified Miz, he continues to swing the chair and connects with Morrison’s lower back several more times before he throws the chair down in anger but the effect is complete ... Morrison is in agony and is clutching his back as a worried referee kneels beside him ... Miz holds his hands up to celebrate ‘injuring’ Morrison and Alex Riley joins him. The pair of them stand over Morrison and the referee is pushed aside ... Miz bends down and speaks to Morrison although we can’t see what is being said ... Miz is smirking though and he turns to leave with Riley by his side ... They back away up the ramp as medical people enter the ring to check on the state of Morrison’s back ...

JIM ROSS: John Morrison had that match won, King!

JERRY LAWLER: As usual, the Miz takes the easy way out and relies on Alex Riley to help him out!

JIM ROSS: We hope you’ve enjoyed the Slammy Award show, ladies and gentlemen, we’ve got one more award to hand out tonight – after the break, the WWE Owner Chip Butty will be out here to present the award for ‘WWE Superstar of the Year’ ... Stay tuned!

********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


THIS SUNDAY! LIVE ON PPV!

********** COMMERCIAL BREAK **********


RAW returns with Michael Cole stood on the stage with his microphone in his hand ...

MICHAEL COLE: Can I have your attention please?

The crowd boo the hell out of Michael Cole once again; he has not had a happy return to Monday Night RAW and it seems as if the crowd aren’t prepared to forgive him for his attitude when HBK was the ‘anonymous’ General Manager ... Cole refuses to be put off and continues ...

MICHAEL COLE: To present the final Slammy Award of the night, please welcome the owner of the WWE ... CHIP BUTTY!

*** HOPPIPOLLA ***



Out walks the WWE owner carrying the final Slammy Award trophy of the night ... Instead of staying on the stage, Chip heads for the ring where the Slammy Award stand has been moved to the centre of the ring ... Butty steps through the ropes and he stands facing the cameras in the middle of the ring ...

CHIP BUTTY: Well, hello there, WWE Universe!

Small pop for the owner of the WWE ...

CHIP BUTTY: What a night it has been, ladies and gentlemen, we have had an amazing night here on Monday Night RAW ... And it is my privilege to be here tonight to present the final award of the evening ... ‘WWE Superstar of the Year 2010’ – the man who has been the absolute best WWE superstar this year, the most entertaining man in the WWE ... So let us take a look at the five nominations for the award right now!

Attention turns to the titantron where a video plays with the top five nominees for the coveted ‘WWE Superstar of the Year’ award ... The video starts with some highlights of the Viper, Randy Orton, hitting RKO’s left and right ... it moves on to the Devil’s Favourite Demon, Kane, winning the SMACKDOWN ‘Money in the Bank’ and cashing it in to win the World Championship from Rey Mysterio ... next up is John Cena hitting the Attitude Adjustment to different superstars ... after that is The Miz winning the United States Championship, the RAW ‘Money in the Bank’ contract and being a Tag Team Champion at the same time ... the final nomination for the award is Chris Jericho, the man who won the World Championship inside the Elimination Chamber and then defended it successfully at WrestleMania against Rumble winner, Edge ... The camera returns to the WWE owner in the ring ...

CHIP BUTTY: So, without further ado, the 2010 WWE ‘Superstar of the Year’ Slammy Award goes to ...

Long pause as the WWE Universe await the announcement ...

*** MY TIME IS NOW ***



CHIP BUTTY: ... JOHN CEEEENA!

A lot of jeers and boos ring out around the arena as Cena heads out onto the stage with a smirk on his face and his hands held high ... There is none of the old Cena saluting at the top of the ramp, he just walks cockily towards the ring, heading for the Slammy Award that he has just won ... Cena slides into the ring and takes the handshake from Chip Butty who hands him the Slammy ...

JOHN CENA: Wow, the 2010 WWE ‘Superstar of the Year’ ... You know who I have to thank for this award, Atlanta?

Cena looks around the WWE Universe at ringside ...

JOHN CENA: I have to thank ... all ... of ... you! You, the people, you made John Cena what he is today. John Cena is the WWE ‘Superstar of the Year’ because you made him that way ... I thank you for that!

Cena salutes the crowd and there are some cheers from the remnants of the Cenation; however, the rest of the WWE Universe suspect something is up ...

JOHN CENA: But, wait a minute, Atlanta. I have spent most of 2010 doing everything I can to make you cheer for me, everything I can to make you chant ‘Cena! Cena! Cena!’ for me ... And tell me something, Atlanta ... tell me something ...

Cena removes his hat and looks out with a quizzical look on his face ...

JOHN CENA: Tell me ... how long did I hold the WWE Championship for in 2010? Tell me how long I held the World Heavyweight Championship for in 2010? I can tell you how long I held the titles for ...

A ‘Cena sucks!’ chant is building up in the arena ...

JOHN CENA: ... 31 seconds in February! After everything I have done for you, the WWE Universe, I held the title for what? 31 seconds?

Cena looks annoyed at what he is saying ... He looks like he blames the WWE Universe here in Atlanta ...

JOHN CENA: I won the WWE Championship in February at the Elimination Chamber ... I celebrated with you all ... and then Vince McMahon brought out Batista and he beat me for the WWE Championship in 31 seconds ...

The crowd boo the comments from Cena ...

JOHN CENA: But at WrestleMania, I regained the WWE Championship ... and you booed me for it. I took out Batista when he was disrespecting everything that the WWE stood for, when he was disrespecting every single one of you ... I took him out for all of you ... and you booed me for it.

Cena looks upset with the WWE Universe and it is clear that the anger in Cena has been slowly building all the way through 2010 ...

JOHN CENA: At Fatal Four Way, I lost the WWE Championship against Sheamus. I was so intent on putting on a spectacle for all of you that I risked everything ... and Sheamus took advantage when Nexus took me out. I took beating after beating after beating from Wade Barrett and the Nexus, I stood up to them when nobody else would, I did everything I could to protect the WWE from the biggest threat that had ever been posed to the WWE ... and you booed me for it.

Cena shakes his head and looks out at the WWE Universe in disgust ...

JOHN CENA: And then, at Cyber Sunday, you voted me out of the WWE Championship match and all my loyal fans stabbed me in the back, they cheered for Randy Orton instead. After all I have been through in 2010, my own fans cheered for Randy Orton instead of me. I still tried to do the right thing, I even teamed up with Randy Orton against the Nexus at Survivor Series. I gave everything I had for the cause ... but you booed me for that as well.

The crowd begin chanting ‘Randy!’ as Cena stands glaring at them from the middle of the ring ...

JOHN CENA: When Randy Orton refused my apology on Monday Night RAW three weeks ago, I decided that I had enough. I had had enough of Randy Orton, I had had enough of all of you, I had had enough of ‘Hustle, Loyalty, Respect!’ ... I decided that it was time for me to look out for myself. So – when 2011 begins next week – John Cena will be doing things his way. John Cena will not be pandering to all of you no more. I won this Slammy Award in 2010 because of all of you ... because I tried to please all of you ...

Cena looks down at the Slammy in his hand, the words ‘Superstar of the Year’ glistening in the lights from the RAW set ... Slowly, Cena considers something for a moment ... then he spits on the Slammy Award and throws it down out of the ring ...

JOHN CENA: That is what I think of being your ‘Superstar of the Year’ ... I don’t care about you anymore, I care about me!

The WWE Universe boo Cena so loud that the roof might be about to lift off ...

JOHN CENA: Next year starts in Cleveland, Ohio next month with the Royal Rumble ... I guarantee you, John Cena will win the Royal Rumble, John Cena will go to WrestleMania, John Cena will win the World Heavyweight Championship, John Cena will defend that title against all of your heroes and he will not listen to what you have to say ...

*** VOICES ***



The crowd go wild as Randy Orton appears on the stage and heads down the ramp with a slow, methodical saunter ... He is carrying a microphone and he holds his hand up to signal for his music to be faded out ...

RANDY ORTON: Have you finished yet, Cena?

An ‘RKO!’ chant begins as Orton steps through the ropes and into the ring ... Cena tenses up ready for a fight but for now Orton is holding his temper ...

RANDY ORTON: Now, Cena, as you know, I have a real problem with my anger management ... And right now, I have a lot of pent up anger towards you. Now, on SMACKDOWN, you told the WWE Universe that you had a proposition for me tonight and I have been waiting all night to hear it ... So before I kick your ass all over Atlanta, Cena, let’s hear the proposition ...

Orton tosses the microphone down and he stands opposite Cena ready to hear the announcement ...

JOHN CENA: What gives you the right to interrupt me, Randy? I am doing things on MY terms now, not yours, not theirs ... So you shut up and listen to me, man ...

Orton looks around at the WWE Universe at ringside who are chanting ‘RKO!’ still and he smiles ... he looks back at Cena and tells him to get on with it ...

JOHN CENA: Randy, I fought hard for you at Survivor Series, I gave everything I had to fight Nexus for you and to keep that WWE Championship around your waist ... and neither you, nor any of them, appreciated it ... I should have been challenging for that WWE Championship of yours at Survivor Series, Randy, but I wasn’t given that chance. Instead, I had to defend you instead!

Orton isn’t looking impressed with what Cena is saying ...

JOHN CENA: Angry, Randy? Wanna hear my proposition?

Orton’s eyes are bulging with anger ... He is dying to strike at Cena ...

JOHN CENA: My first intention now that I have set myself free from these ... from these IDIOTS ... is to destroy you ... So how about it, Randy?

Orton recoils a little as he considers what Cena is asking ...

JOHN CENA: You and me, one on one ... Vengeance, this Sunday? How about it, Randy?

Orton glares into the eyes of Cena who does not flinch as he faces the Viper ... Slowly, Cena raises his hand up and waves it in front of his face while directing a ‘You can’t see me!’ comment at Orton ... RKO! RANDY ORTON WITH AN RKO TO JOHN CENA! The crowd go wild as Orton stands over Cena and glares down at him with maniacal smirk on his face ... He drops down and picks up the microphone that Cena dropped ...

RANDY ORTON: YES!

Orton drops the microphone and turns away as the WWE Universe go wild at the thought of John Cena vs. Randy Orton at Vengeance! Orton backs away up the ramp as Cena comes to his senses and stares out through the ropes at the Viper ... Orton raises his hand and waves it in front of his face as he looks into the eyes of Cena ... The crowd are loving it ...

JIM ROSS: The 2010 ‘WWE Superstar of the Year’ will go one on one with the ‘Viper’ Randy Orton this Sunday at Vengeance ... What a huge announcement!

JERRY LAWLER: Wow, what a match that will be!

RAW fades out with Randy Orton stood on the stage with his hands in the air saluting the fans whilst John Cena stares up at him from the mat in the ring ...
