Re: WWE: The Acquisition of TNA
PS: I will write summaries of TV matches lest they be important.
Florida; Orlando-Amway Arena
Vince McMahon is shown in his office.
Vince: Over 8 years ago, I was here in this very room announcing the purchase of my own competition: WCW. Tonight, I announce the purchase of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. As you saw last night: TNA World Champion Samoa Joe has made his WWE debut. I can confirm that Mister Joe has signed a contract with WWE. Over the course of the next few weeks many TNA superstars will debut on RAW and Smackdown!. However, they must choose if they want to sign for a certain brand. If a superstar doesn’t sign to a brand by April’s Backlash Pay-Per-View: they will be randomly drafted along with
ECW superstars during the 2009 Draft. Any superstar who has a question about this can find me in my office. Also, tonight due to Vickie Gurrereo’s leaving of the company both RAW and Smackdown! are without a General Manager I will name RAW’s tonight and Smackdown!’s
Friday night. Till then, welcome to Monday Night RAW!!
Opening Video Plays
“Voices” hits to major heat as Legacy makes there way to the ring.
Orton: Last night, I made history! Last night, I avenged my injury at the hands of Triple H. Last June, I was injured at the hands of a savage Triple H.

“You Suck” chant starts.
Orton: In fact, in fact, lets see that right now.
