Opening Video and
Cole: Welcome to Monday Night RAW! Were here live from the Cleveland, Ohio!
The VIP lounge is set up.
“I’m Comin’” hits to a big pop as the US Champion makes his way to the ring.
MVP: Welcome to the VIP lounge! For, the first time ever the VIP Lounge is coming LIVE! So, without further ado my guest a former Intercontinental Champion, US Champion, and 6-Time, 6-Time, 6-Time, 6-Time, 6-Time, 6-Time World Champion: Booker T!
“Can You Dig It” hits to a heel reaction and Booker T comes out from behind the curtain with his wife: Sharmell.
MVP: How you doing Booker?
Booker: I’m doin’ alright.
MVP: Your hand doing alright?
Booker and Sharmell look puzzled by the question.
Booker: Yeah, why?
MVP: Well, you were hitting the mat pretty hard last week when you were tapping out.
Booker and Sharmell look frustrated
MVP: Why, don’t we take a look at that again?
*Replay*: Joe then hops on Booker T’s back and locks on the Coquina Clutch! Booker reaches for the ropes to no avail and has no choice but to tap out!
Booker: What you brought me here to make fun of me?!?
MVP: No Booker, I brought you out here to ask you a question: What happened?
Booker: What do you mean: ‘What happened?’?
MVP: Imean the last title you held a title you created one, and you even lost that! Before that, you hadn’t held a title since 2006. 2006! That’s 3 years ago! So once again Booker, what happened?
Booker looks angry and goes to hit MVP with the microphone. MVP ducks and starts punching away at Booker. MVP kicks him in the gut and sets up for a Playmaker, but Sharmell gets on MVP’s shoulders. MVP throws Sharmell down with a snapmare. Booker pulls Sharmell out of the ring and harm’s way. Booker stares down at MVP.
Backstage: Shane McMahon, Booker T, and Sharmell
Booker (Angrily): Shane, he can’t disrespect me like that! I want a match Backlash! Me versus MVP for the US title!
Shane: Booker, I can’t do that for two reasons: 1. The Backlash card is full.
2. You aren’t a RAW superstar and the US Title is a RAW Championship. But, I can compromise… How about Booker T versus MVP in a non-title match on the debut of WWE Superstars!
Booker: Yeah that’s more like it!

Cena puts one finger up.
Cena: I’m sorry but, I am sick and tired of all this. Me having a contract signing, I having to “defy the odds”, and when I do it’s consider an “upset”. Are you kidding me?!? Christian, I respect you.
Cena throws the table over.
Christian: I respect you too Cena, that is why I’m looking forward to our match Backlash. You may recall before I left, you and I had a bit of a feud. We had to end that feud prematurely; I’m hoping to end that feud in three weeks at Backlash.
