Re: GCB's WWE
MONDAY NIGHT RAW!
Live from Indianapolis, Indiana
A highlight video plays of last night’s ‘Night of Champions’ PPV showing Daniel Bryan’s US Title submission win over The Miz followed by highlights from the ‘Six-Pack Challenge’ match for the WWE Title. Chris Jericho’s early exit and subsequent facial expressions are shown before the elimination of Edge by John Cena is played. Nexus’ attack on Cena is shown with Wade Barrett’s ‘Wasteland’ finisher to Cena eliminating him before Barrett is eliminated by an RKO from Randy Orton. Slow motion, black and white clips of Sheamus and Randy Orton are shown with soundbites from previous RAW’s used in the background to emphasise the confrontation before the colour returns and the video speeds up with Orton’s RKO and 3-count over the champion. The video finishes with a shot of Orton standing in the corner of the ring with the WWE Championship held high in the air.
*** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO ***
Welcome to Monday Night RAW with me, Michael Cole, and my broadcast colleague, Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler, at ringside.
And what a night we had at ‘Night of Champions’ last night, Cole, with RAW’s two most coveted titles changing hands!
Randy Orton won the WWE Championship in the ‘Six Pack Challenge’ with an RKO to Sheamus to secure the title and ... well, you tell them, King ...
Daniel Bryan made The Miz tap out to win the US Championship!
A fluke win, King, and the whole WWE Universe knows it! We’re sure to hear from Mr. Money In The Bank tonight, he’ll be US Champion again in no time.
Well, it’s going to be an amazing night. Look at this match scheduled for later this evening ...
After his elimination from last night’s ‘Six Pack Challenge’ by Wade Barrett and the Nexus, John Cena gets an opportunity against David Otunga tonight on RAW.
And here comes the new WWE Champion!
Please welcome, from St.Louis, Missouri, the new WWE Champion ... RANDY ORTON!
A smiling Randy Orton ambles slowly onto the stage, the WWE Title draped over his shoulder, and makes his way down to the ring to a huge ovation. Once inside the ring, he struts over to all four corners of the ring and holds the WWE Title high to loud cheers before replacing it on his shoulder and taking a microphone.
Last night, I defeated five men and became the new ... WWE Champion.
Crowd cheers for the new champion.
Last night, I eliminated three of my five opponents with ... an RKO.
More crowd cheers at the mention of Orton’s finish move followed by an RKO chant.
Last night, I ended the career – if he is true to his word – of one of the greatest superstars to ever set foot in WWE ... Chris Jericho.
The Jericho fans boo but most of the crowd cheer once more.
Last night, I did what John Cena could not do. I eliminated ... Wade Barrett and the Nexus.
More cheers but a small ‘Cena’ chant can be heard in the background.
And last night, I finally beat Sheamus 1-2-3 in the ring to end his reign ... as WWE champion.
Loud cheers for the Viper ending Sheamus’ title reign.
At ‘Night of Champions’ last night, I walked into the ring with all the momentum in the world. I hit RKO after RKO after RKO and ... I walked out on top of the world ... fella. Five of the WWE’s very best could not beat me at ‘Night of Champions’ and I’m out here to warn the RAW locker room to get used to this sight.
Orton strides to the corner, steps up to the middle rope and slowly lifts the WWE Title high for the fans to see. Flashlights go off around the arena before ...
John Cena comes bounding out onto the stage in a surprisingly happy mood after last night’s events. Despite the usual mixed reaction, he goes through his usual salute stance and then charges down to the ring to salute the fans.
Ladies and Gentlemen, from West Newbury, Massachusetts ... JOHN CENA!
Cena takes a microphone and turns to face Randy Orton who is eyeballing Cena after his interruption with an evil look in his eye. Cena notices this and holds out his hands to calm Orton down.
Relax, Randy, relax, I’m not out here for any trouble. I’m here to tell you that ... the best man won last night. Ladies and gentlemen, it pains me to say it but ... The Champ is there.
Orton nods in agreement and adjusts the title belt on his shoulder.
The best man won, Randy, and I’m man enough to admit it. I don’t like it, I wanted to win that title last night, but I didn’t ... You’re the man who brought his ‘A’ game last night and I respect that.
The majority of the crowd cheer this announcement and applaud Cena’s comments.
I also came out here, Randy, to thank you. Thank you for making sure that that piece of ... slime known as Wade Barrett and his cronies didn’t manage to bully their way to the WWE Title. Your RKO to Barrett stopped that and ...
Orton decides it is time to interrupt Cena’s comment.
Thank you, Cena, I appreciate that ... but tell me the truth – why are you here?
I’m here, Randy, for the same reason as I am always here on Monday Night Raw. It was a shame that last night, Nexus ended my match before you and I could fight for the gold. But I’m here for the WWE Universe and I’m here for that gold that is hanging over your shoulder.
The Cena fans in the crowd cheer in anticipation of Cena challenging Orton for the WWE Championship. Randy Orton smiles to himself ...
And what makes you think that you are worthy to challenge for this title, Cena? I’ve won this title after months of determination and momentum building, months of RKO’s and months of removing the barriers. Whilst you’ve spent most of the last few months on your back at the hands of the Nexus ...
For the first time, there is an edge to the Orton and Cena conversation as Cena looks a little perturbed. He shakes his head.
Randy, I’ll admit that I’ve suffered at the hands of the Nexus. But I vowed to re-pay them for their actions and I am taking them out one by one. Tonight, I continue that action when I face David Otunga. I just wanted to let you know that I am planning on taking them out in the very near future and when I do ... I will then be setting my sights of regaining my WWE Championship.
Cena takes a step towards Orton and a stare-down between the two develops. Half the fans begin to chant ‘RKO!’ but the rest start to chant ‘Cena!’ as the tension mounts. However, the tension is released by the sound of an e-mail from the anonymous General Manager of RAW. Many fans boo at the sound of the e-mail jingle as Michael Cole gets to his feet at ringside.
May I have your attention please? I have received an e-mail from the General Manager.
Cole makes his way to the laptop stand as Cena and Orton move apart and turn towards Michael Cole ...
And I quote ... ‘Randy Orton, congratulations on a fabulous victory at ‘Night of Champions’ and your new WWE Championship. In my opinion, it was a well deserved victory. However, John Cena has a point. He was eliminated from the match after a distraction from Nexus. Maybe John Cena would have beaten you and won the WWE Title had he continued?’
Orton shakes his head as Cena looks around with a grin on his face, clapping his hands in agreement.
‘However, John Cena, you will not be getting a title shot in two weeks time at ‘No Mercy’ I’m afraid. That honour belongs to the former WWE Champion, Sheamus. He contacted me earlier today and invoked his rematch clause for that night. I’m afraid that you, Cena, will have to find another route to a match with Randy Orton. Wade Barrett is the man who eliminated you at ‘Night of Champions.’ He is the man you need to take care of first. And maybe Randy Orton can help you? Tonight’s main event will feature the new champion, Randy Orton ... and the leader of the Nexus, Wade Barrett.’
Michael Cole returns to his seat as the crowd cheer the announcement of tonight’s main event between Orton and Barrett. In the ring, Cena and Orton stand apart looking at each other as RAW fades into a commercial break.
********** COMMERCIAL **********
Ladies and Gentlemen, this match is set for one fall. Making his way to the ring, from Dublin, Ireland, weighing in at 272 pounds ... SHEAMUS!
The former WWE Champion strides out looking annoyed at losing his WWE Title to Randy Orton last night and signals for the music to be quietened down. He fingers his waist area where his title belt used to reside before speaking into his microphone.
Did you hear Randy Orton out here before? Last night this, last night that ... Last night, fella, you managed a fluke victory and walked away with my WWE Heavyweight Title.
The Celtic Warrior enters the ring and stares around the crowd who are jeering him about his loss to Orton.
One lucky RKO, one lucky count of three ... I always thought it was the ‘Luck o’ the Irish’ but it seems I’m wrong. And I will prove it was a fluke to you, Randy Orton, in two weeks time at ‘No Mercy’ when I destroy you and win back my WWE Title. So take a good look at this match, fella, take a good look and see that one lucky RKO is nothing compared to me, Sheamus, when I unleash hell on you, Viper.
Sheamus performs his usual taunts to the crowd as he prepares for his match.
R-Truth makes his way to the ring with his usual rapping with the crowd as he dances his way down the aisle to Sheamus’ disgust. When he enters the ring, Truth greets the crowd in Indianapolis before preparing for his match.
And his opponent, from Atlanta, Georgia, weighing 235 pounds ... R-TRUTH!
Sheamus vs. R-Truth
In a competitive match, both men are equal to each other in the early stages as they perfrom their standard moves – Sheamus with his power attack and R-Truth with his quickfire, innovative style. However, the match turns in Sheamus’ favour about halfway through as R-Truth goes for a spinning forearm – the ‘Lie Detector’ – and misses as Sheamus moves out of the way leaving Truth to crash to the mat. From there, Sheamus takes control with clotheslines and powerful punches that take the wind out of Truth’s sails. When Truth attempts to hit a hurricanrana out of desperation, Sheamus pushes him aside and lays him out with the Brogue Kick before securing the 3-count.
WINNER (7:23): SHEAMUS
Here is your winner ... SHEAMUS!
An impressive win for the Irish superstar, Sheamus, he challenges Randy Orton for the title in two weeks at ‘No Mercy’ and will be determined to feel the belt back around his waist.
He needs something to bring out a little colour in him, Cole!
Nevertheless, King, we heard earlier from the General Manager who has made a huge main event for tonight. The new WWE Champion, Randy Orton, will face the leader of the Nexus, Wade Barrett, one on one, tonight on RAW.
It’s a huge match for Wade Barrett, Cole. A win could shoot him into contention for the WWE Title.
That’s true, King. And over the last few months, Wade Barrett and the Nexus have made John Cena’s life a living hell. Let’s take a look ...
A video montage of the Nexus’ domination of Cena over the last few months is played: their first, shocking beatdown of Cena on RAW; their destruction of the ringside crew the same night; their numerous attacks on Cena; the vicious assaults on RAW superstars like Yoshi Tatsu and Goldust; their treatment of previous RAW General Manager, Bret Hart; their attack on Vince McMahon – former WWE Chairman. The video ends with a clip of Justin Gabriel’s 450 splash followed by Barrett hitting ‘Wastelands’ on Mark Henry before the Nexus logo brings the video to an end ...
********** COMMERCIAL **********
RAW returns with Josh Matthew’s standing backstage holding a microphone ready for an interview.
Welcome back to Monday Night Raw. I’d like to introduce my guest at this time ... Chris Jericho.
Boos are audible from outside in the arena as the camera pans out to reveal a grinning Chris Jericho moving to the side of Matthews.
Chris, it’s been a difficult time for you recently. You’ve found yourself in a losing streak. What are you planning to do to get ...
Jericho interrupts Matthews, looking annoyed, as he grabs the microphone and shoves the interviewer away roughly. He turns to face the camera.
I am a man who has held 22 major titles here in the WWE. I am a man who has held the Intercontinental Title more often than any other wrestler in history. I am a 6-time World Champion. I am simply, a man who has been successful in everything I have ever done in my life.
The crowd jeer Jericho with his recent ‘successes’ fresh in the minds of the WWE Universe.
And unlike the fat, gelatinous, uneducated morons here in Indianapolis ...
Major heat from the crowd after Jericho’s insults their home town.
... and unlike the idiotic sycophants and hypocrites sat at home in the WWE Universe, I am a man of honour and I set my sights last night on becoming – once again – the WWE Champion. However, I was cheated. I was cheated by five other WWE Superstars who knew that if it ended up being any one of them and Chris Jericho at the end of the night, that I would walk out the new WWE Champion.
The crowd continue to jeer Jericho who is now looking irate with rage.
So they teamed up together to eliminate me from the match first. They eliminated me and you parasites cheered their actions. And why did you cheer? Because you know, just like they all know, that I am the best in the world at what I do. They know that I was the first ever Undisputed Champion when I beat both The Rock and Steve Austin in the same night. After that, those five wouldn’t have stood a chance in a fair fight ... What the hell do you want, punk?
The camera pans out further so we can see John Morrison walking towards Jericho with a smile on his face as he chuckles in amusement. He lifts his sunglasses off as his coat glitters in the backstage lights.
Chris, please give it a rest. Every week, we hear the same clichéd insults from you, the same tired excuses. Have a day off. You’re having a bad time of it right now, we’ve all been there. The fact is that you cheated your way into the match when you ‘beat’ me on RAW a couple of weeks ago, you are past your best and you lost the match last night.
Jericho looks to be getting more worked up as Morrison’s interruption continues.
Now, Chris, I didn’t like the way you beat me to secure your spot in the ‘Night of Champions’ WWE Title match. So I am here now to challenge you to a match at ‘No Mercy’ – you and me, one on one ... What do you say, Jericho?
What do I say? You think you can come back here and interrupt me? You think you are in my league? You think that ...
Chris Jericho lunges forward and slams his microphone into the skull of John Morrison catching him off-guard and sending him crashing to the floor. Jericho continues his assault as he picks up a steel chair and begins to smash it into the prone body of Morrison over and over and over. With Morrison laid writhing in pain, Jericho drags him up and runs him by the hair head-first into the brick wall. Jericho stands over Morrison as he lays unconscious on the floor and speaks to him again ...
What do I say, Morrison? I say that you should think very carefully before you ever antagonise me again.
With several WWE officials now spilling into the area to prevent further damage to Morrison, Jericho smirks cockily and walks away to a crescendo of boos as the camera shows Morrison laid on the floor in serious pain.
A message from Chris Jericho to the WWE Universe and the WWE Locker Room, King?
Definitely, Jericho just completely snapped, Cole.
This match is set for one fall and is a Tag Team Fatal 4 Way Match. The winning tag team will become the number one contenders for the WWE Unified Tag Team Championship.
Introducing first, weighing in at 529 pounds, the team of ... SANTINO MARELLA and VLADIMIR KOZLOV!
Santino Marella comes out ahead of his tag team partner, Vladimir Kozlov, and performs his usual gimmick entrance as Kozlov strides to the ring, focused, behind him.
Well, King, a Fatal 4-Way Tag Team Match to determine the new Number 1 contenders for the Tag Team Titles that Cody Rhodes and Drew McIntyre won last night.
I love seeing Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov wrestle, Cole. They’re the odd couple of the WWE ...and let’s face it, Santino has been involved in some odd couples during his time in WWE!
In Tag Team Turmoil last night, Rhodes and McIntyre managed to out-last four teams, including the Hart Dynasty, to secure the title. This match features the four losing teams as they battle for the Number One contender spot heading towards ‘No Mercy.’
Accompanied to the ring by Tamina, from San Francisco, California, weighing in at 480 pounds ... JIMMY and JAY USO!
As The Usos make their way towards the ring, Tamina locks her eyes on Santino Marella who looks a little lovestruck as he stares back towards the daughter of Jimmy Snuka.
It looks as if Santino Marella has a little thing for Tamina, Michael.
He may do, King, but Kozlov does not look impressed by the actions of his partner. Santino’s pandering to Tamina last night cost them a chance at the Tag Team Titles.
Next up, weighing in at a combined weight of 575 pounds ... EVAN BOURNE and MARK HENRY!
Bourne and Henry come out of the backstage area and begin to head down towards the ring. Bourne leads the way, holding his hand high in the air, as Henry follows laughing and clapping.
Here come two men who have looked very impressive together recently and have to be considered a danger to the Tag Team Titles. This is set to be their final appearance here on RAW as they are both being drafted to SMACKDOWN this week ... Wait a minutes, what’s this?
Cody Rhodes and Drew McIntyre dash out behind Bourne and Henry and smash them both in the back of the head with their Tag Team Title belts. Both men crash to the floor and McIntyre peels after Evan Bourne. He picks up the smaller superstar and runs him back up the ramp and smashes him face first into the RAW stage screens – one of the panels blacks out and a few sparks fly from the screen as Evan falls back in agony. Meanwhile, Cody Rhodes is waiting for Mark Henry to get back to his feet at the bottom of the ramp whilst the two teams already in the ring stand and watch ... as Henry gets to his feet and turns, Rhodes prepares himself before smashing him in the face with the title belt for a second time.
Oh my God, Cole, what is this about?
A shocking attack on Evan Bourne and Mark Henry by the new Tag Team champions. How will this affect the Number 1 contender match coming up?
********** COMMERCIAL **********
RAW returns with Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov in the ring with The Usos as Mark Henry is helped out of the arena with Evan Bourne on a stretcher. The attackers, Cody Rhodes and Drew McIntyre, are nowhere to be seen.
We’ve just had word that Evan Bourne and Mark Henry will not be able to compete here tonight and that the match will go ahead as a Triple Threat Tag Team Match instead.
And finally, accompanied by Natalya, weighing in at 445 pounds ... TYSON KIDD, DAVID HART-SMITH ... THE HART DYNASTY!
The Hart Dynasty head towards the ring looking in a foul but determined mood after losing their titles last night. They lift Natalya up onto the apron and head into the ring to a positive ovation from the fans.
WWE TAG TEAM TITLE #1 CONTENDERS MATCH
Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov vs. The Usos vs. Hart Dynasty
The match is a fast paced and action packed one with Tyson Kidd particularly impressive when he flies around the ring. The match slows down when David Hart-Smith and Vladimir Kozlov come together but Hart-Smith ends up succumbing to a headbutt from the ‘Moscow Mauler’ that sends him down to the mat and outside although Jimmy Uso does get the tag as he falls past him. With Kozlov and Santino looking set for the win, Tamina distracts Santino Marella again as well as the referee and allows The Usos to take out Vladimir Kozlov behind the referee’s back. Jimmy Uso goes for the pin but it is interrupted by Tyson Kidd who sends him out of the ring with a roundhouse kick. With Tyson Kidd not the legal man, he attacks Santino Marella and the two spill outside leaving just Kozlov in the ring as a legal man. However, with Jimmy Uso outside the ring as the other legal man, Jay Uso slides in the ring pretending to be his brother. The referee cannot tell the difference and Jay hits a diving splash from the ropes to Kozlov and hooks the leg for a 3-count.
WINNER (8:54): THE USOS
Here are your winners and the number one contenders for the Tag Team Titles ... JIMMY and JAY USO!
The Usos and Tamina celebrate their victory but don’t hang around long after their deception to get the win. The camera follows them up the ramp.
Not an altogether legal win but a win all the same, King.
Sometimes you’ve just got to get the win in the WWE and worry about the reaction later!
So it’ll be The Usos who will get to challenge Cody Rhodes and Drew McIntyre for the Tag Team Titles at ‘No Mercy’ in two weeks time. Josh Matthews is backstage with the new champions right now.
Camera returns to the interview area backstage and Josh Matthews with his guests, Cody Rhodes and Drew McIntyre. As Tag Team Champions, these two can appear on RAW at any time despite their SMACKDOWN contractual obligations.
Cody, Drew ... Why did you just attack Evan Bourne and Mark Henry?
Why do you think, Matthews? The new Tag Team Champions are made up of the future of the WWE, the young guns, the ‘chosen one’ Drew McIntyre and ... ‘Dashing’ Cody Rhodes. Are Bourne and Henry ‘dashing’ Josh? They look like they have been hit several times by the ugly stick, if you know what I mean. They are not what the WWE wants to see as the Tag Team Champions.
They’re ugly, they’re boring and they’re over the hill. Mark Henry has been here for years and he has never done anything in the WWE. As for Evan Bourne ... he got a win over Chris Jericho a few months back and has done nothing since except hang about with Henry. We don’t believe that they are worthy of challenging us for the Tag Team Titles ... so we took them out.
We’re just getting word from the doctors that both Evan and Mark have been taken to hospital for treatment on suspected concussions ...
Rhodes and McIntyre smile in delight with their plan seemingly working to perfection.
... some would say that you took them out because you’re scared to face them?
Scared of them? One of them is a near-400 pound old timer; the other is a skinny little runt who has one move of note. We are NOT scared of them. They are not worthy of getting into a ring with me, ‘Dashing’ Cody Rhodes, the most handsome man in the WWE.
They’re not Tag Team Championship material, they never will be. And now we will set our sights on The Usos and defeating them at ‘No Mercy’ and going on to be the most dominant Tag Team Champions of all time.
Rhodes and McIntyre swing their Tag Team title belts over their shoulders and walk away from Matthews with cocky, arrogant looks on their faces.
********** COMMERCIAL **********
Please welcome, accompanied to the ring by Alex Riley ... THE MIZ!
Alex Riley strides out first telling everybody to show respect to The Miz as the current ‘Money In The Bank’ contract holder comes out with, surprisingly, a smirk on his face after he lost the US Title last night. Holding his briefcase high, The Miz poses as the pyro fires and he heads to the ring with a cocky swagger that we have become accustomed to with The Miz in the last few months.
Oh boy! Here we go, King! The Miz is here on Monday Night Raw!
Calm down, Cole, calm down. No doubt he’s here with a thousand and one excuses about his loss to Daniel Bryan last night.
Last night, The Miz was beaten by Daniel Bryan – his ungrateful NXT Season 1 rookie – after Bryan locked in the LeBell Lock on him and forced him to tap out.
Yeah, he tapped out and I reckon this crowd will be sure to remind him of that fact!
Oh, come on, King! You saw what happened! The Miz dominated the match and was caught off-guard by Bryan with one lucky move.
The Miz and Alex Riley enter the ring and pose before Miz takes a microphone and heads to the centre of the ring as the music dies down. As he prepares to talk, a huge ‘You Tapped Out!’ chant begins in the arena and The Miz stands there smirking.
Yes, I did ... I did tap out ...
The chants continue to get louder as the smile remains on the face of Miz.
... and I tapped out on purpose.
The crowd begins to jeer and boo The Miz instead as Riley tells them to quieten down.
I tapped out on purpose because my time as the US Champion is up. You see, I am still ‘Mr. Money In The Bank’ and you know what? That guarantees that I will be the WWE Champion when I decide I want to cash it in. Whenever I make that decision, I will pin the WWE Champion and take the WWE Championship. If you think about it, I already am the WWE Champion – I just haven’t got the belt yet!
The crowd continue to boo and jeer as Alex Riley applauds his mentor who laughs out loud in the middle of the ring.
All day long, I’ve heard the whispers behind my back. The Miz ... he lost to Daniel Bryan last night. Daniel Bryan is the new US Champion. He tapped out. Daniel Bryan is the new US Champion for a reason and that reason is ... because I let him. When I first showed up on NXT Season 1, I got no respect from Daniel Bryan. I got nothing but sneers from him. He thought he was better than me and that I could teach him nothing. He acted like a complete jerk and he deserves everything he has got from me.
Alex Riley nods his head and laughs at The Miz’ comments but the crowd continue to get on The Miz’ back.
He comes out here in his purple trunks with his goofy music, he tells us all he is going to make us all tap out ...
Another ‘You Tapped Out!’ chant begins to echo around the arena
Really? Really? I’ve already told you, I tapped out on .. pur ... pose. Watch my lips. I ... tapped ... out ... on ... pur – pose. Was that slow enough for you Indianapolis morons?
More heat from the crowd after the insult.
The fact is this: I am guaranteed to be WWE Champion whenever I decide I want to be. Do I need the US Title? No, I don’t. So I decided that I wanted Daniel Bryan to win it from me. I wanted my rookie to become the first rookie to win a title in the WWE. Daniel Bryan, new US Champion, because The Miz gave it him. And now, I want to make sure that my two NXT rookies are both US Champions. Alex Riley is more of a champion than Daniel Bryan will ever be – so I am officially handing my rematch clause over to Alex Riley for ‘No Mercy.’
The crowd boo as Riley parades around the ring with his arm aloft and mouthing off at the crowd. He signals that the belt will soon be his before The Miz continues.
Alex Riley will become the new US Champion at ‘No Mercy’ and who knows? Maybe I will cash in my ‘Money In The Bank’ contract after the Randy Orton and Sheamus match ... whoever wins the match. You see, I’m on my way to bigger and better things than the US Title. I’m on the road to the WWE Championship, I’m going to cash in my ‘Money In The Bank’ contract very soon, I’m going to be the future of the WWE ... because I’m The Miz ... and I’m ... AAWWWWWEEEESSSSSOOOMMMMEEEE!
The Miz’ music restarts and he leaves the ring with Alex Riley by his side. Riley signals that he will become the new US Champion to the crowd whilst The Miz points to his rookie and builds him up.
The future of the WWE has spoken, King, he lost the title on purpose so that he could make the claim that he was the first NXT Pro to guide a rookie to a title. And in two weeks time at the ‘No Mercy’ pay-per-view, it will be Alex Riley’s chance to win the US Title.
What a load of rubbish that was, Cole, you don’t honestly believe that The Miz lost on purpose, do you?
Of course, he has moved on from the US Title, King, he is guaranteed to win the WWE Title soon so he doesn’t need it. Next up though, the match that John Cena has been waiting for all night ...
... as he goes one on one with Nexus member, David Otunga, after the break.
********** COMMERCIAL **********
David Otunga walks out alone for his match looking confident that he can cause what would be a huge upset and beat the former WWE Champion, John Cena, tonight on RAW.
This match is set for one fall. Making his way to the ring, weighing in at 240 pounds, from Hollywood, California ... representing the Nexus ... DAVID OTUNGA!
Otunga enters the ring and makes his way to the corner to trash talk to some of the fans at ringside. He looks rather strange and isolated on his own.
The crowd erupt for the arrival of John Cena who goes through his usual entrance routine as we saw earlier in the evening. Once in the ring, he bounces off the ropes a few times before throwing his shirt into the crowd.
His opponent, from West Newbury, Massachusetts, weighing 240 pounds ... JOHN CENA!
David Otunga vs. John Cena
As Cena hands over his jewellery to the referee, Otunga clearly has a plan in mind and attacks Cena from behind forcing him head first into the turnbuckle. The referee rings the bell and Otunga has control of the match in the early stages with Cena knocked out of sync by the cheap attack at the start. However, as Otunga looks to finish the match early with his thrust spinebuster, Cena reverses the move into an STF attempt. With Otunga near the ropes, Cena has to break the hold and Otunga slithers out of the ring but parity is now restored. The match continues with Cena starting to take control with his usual arsenal of attacks although Otunga is getting some offence in and it isn’t as one-sided as you might expect. However, Cena starts to click through the gears as he hits the Five-Knuckle Shuffle and starts to look like he has the match won. As Otunga tries a last desperate attempt to take Cena down, Cena ducks and lifts Otunga up for the Attitude Adjustment ... 1, 2, 3!
WINNER (5:35): JOHN CENA
Here is your winner ... JOHN ...
Robert’s announcement and Cena’s music is cut short as Skip Sheffield storms across the ring from out of nowhere and clatters into Cena from behind to send him flying to the mat. Otunga and Sheffield begin their beatdown of Cena and both hit their finishing moves – Otunga finally getting the Thrust Spinebuster that he calls ‘The Verdict’ whilst Sheffield rocks Cena’s jaw with a crunching clothesline. The two Nexus members leave the ring with Cena in a crumpled heap at the hands of the Nexus yet again. As they reach the top of the ramp, Wade Barrett and the other three Nexus members – Heath Slater, Justin Gabriel and Michael Tarver – appear and congratulate their team-mates on a job well done.
Another RAW, another Nexus beat-down of John Cena.
At some point, Cena is going to have to take out the Nexus once and for all ... otherwise, they are going to continue this and eventually, he’ll be able to take no more.
(as the camera focuses on a battered Cena getting up)
What will be the next move for John Cena in his bid to stop the Nexus?
********** COMMERCIAL **********
RAW returns with footage of John Cena rampaging around backstage, clearly annoyed after his win over David Otunga was spoiled by the attack from Skip Sheffield. He is shouting around for Wade Barrett and he rounds a corner and walks straight into him ... and the rest of the Nexus.
Are you looking for me, John?
This has gone on long enough, Wade, it’s time to put up or shut up. What is your problem with me?
We have no personal issue with you, Cena. We told the whole WWE Universe that the winds of change were blowing and that meant the Nexus needed to remove the top dog in the WWE. We set our sights on you. And tonight, some of our attention will turn on Randy Orton.
Why don’t you be a real man and face me by yourself, Wade? Every week, you tell us all that the ‘winds of change are blowing’ but every week, you show yourselves to be a bunch of cowards only capable of winning any match here in WWE with your team-mates behind you. Why don’t you prove that you are the future of the WWE, Wade? Why don’t you do it alone?
Cena, I’ve had just about enough of your mouth. If it wasn’t for the fact that me and the rest of the Nexus had important matches still to come tonight, we’d wipe the backstage floor with you again. As it is, we’re going to let you walk away. Go ... now!
Cena stands his ground, refusing to move, shaking his head.
No, Wade, somebody has to stand up to you.
Then you leave us no choice, Cena.
Yet again, Skip Sheffield is the one who storms out of the Nexus pack and smashes Cena with another devastating clothesline. The rest of the Nexus stand back as Sheffield slams Cena into walls and boxes before Barrett walks over to a prone Cena one more time.
When will you learn, Cena? Just stay out of our way.
The Nexus walk away with the camera focused on Cena writhing on the floor in pain. As he is laid on his back in agony, the camera shows Randy Orton walking round the corner.
On your back at the hands of the Nexus, Cena. Again.
The camera returns to the ring and the music of Edge begins to play.
Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome ... EDGE!
Edge walks to the ring looking determined to get something off his chest, not even stopping for his usual fireworks and pose. He climbs into the ring and demands a microphone from the ring announcer’s table.
Cut the music ... Last night at the Six-Pack Challenge, I was eliminated second. I have no excuses. I was eliminated fair and square by John Cena.
Small pop for the mention of Cena.
However, there is one thing that is on my mind. The General Manager of RAW ... his actions as regards me in the last few weeks have been scandalous. He clearly has some kind of vendetta against me and I’m here to demand that he meets me face to face. So, anonymous GM, if you’re here ... get out here. If you’re not, I expect your response to tell me that you will be here next week ...
Edge waits for the entrance of the GM or the response via e-mail. After about thirty seconds, it is clear that there will be no response from the GM.
This is ridiculous. I am the Rated-R Superstar and I demand that you tell me who you are!
Edge waits again ... but there is still no response.
All I want to know is why the General Manager seems to have such a problem with me. I am the top entertainer here on RAW ... yes, I am ... and I demand to have my questions answered tonight or next week!
Edge waits again ... and waits and waits ... still no response.
That’s fine then. I’m going nowhere until I get some answers. Consider me on strike and RAW postponed until I hear from the General Manager ...
It looks as if Edge is planning to stage a sit-down strike for answers. We’ll see if Edge gets any response next ...
********** COMMERCIAL **********
RAW returns with Edge still sat on a steel chair in the ring. He is looking incredibly annoyed that the RAW General Manager has so far refused to contact him in any way.
I mean it. RAW will not be continuing until somebody tells me some information!
Edge continues to wait ... and wait ... until ...
Ladies and Gentlemen ... Please welcome the new owner of WWE ... CHIP BUTTY!
Dressed in jeans and a sports shirt, the new owner of the WWE walks out to a warm reception from the WWE crowd. Smiling and waving to the crowd, Chip heads for the ring and slides under the bottom rope where Edge awaits.
Good evening, Edge, it’s an honour to meet you. Allow me to introduce myself. I am the man who has bought the WWE from Vince McMahon. I am the new owner of the WWE. My name is Chip Butty and any complaints that you have tonight will be dealt with by me.
Chip offers his hand out to Edge which the Rated-R Superstar reluctantly shakes.
Right then, Edge, I cannot allow you to sit here in the middle of my WWE ring and hold up the RAW show that thousands of people have paid to see. What is the problem?
The General Manager is the problem, Butty, have you not been listening to me?
Let’s get one thing straight, Edge, before we go any further. Until I give you permission to do differently, you will address me as Mr. Butty. Remember that it is I who will be paying your cheques. I have heard you discussing the General Manager’s ‘vendetta’ against you. What exactly is the problem you have with the GM?
My problem with the GM? Let me see ... he’s a coward for one thing. He sits behind a computer somewhere and in the last three months, he hasn’t shown his face once. He makes matches that continually put me at a disadvantage and refuses to treat me as the superstar that I am. He is ...
Wait a minute, Edge! Who says that the RAW General Manager is a male?
Edge looks bewildered at the prospect that a female General Manager is controlling his future and, for a moment, is lost for words.
Are you telling me that you’ve never upset any of the ladies here in WWE? Do you need me to name them all?
So the General Manager is a female then? That could explain a few things ...
Edge, this claim of yours that the General Manager of RAW – be it male or female – is somehow holding a grudge over you seems a bit far-fetched to me. What exactly has the GM done wrong to you?
Are you kidding me? He – or she – put me in a match with The Great Khali.
And ... ?
What do you mean? The Great Khali! How is that fair?
For a start, I remember watching RAW a few weeks ago just before Summerslam when you wanted Khali off the WWE Team because he wasn’t good enough. If that was your opinion, why is putting you in a match with Khali such a bad thing? Surely you’d have won it easily?
Edge looks like he wants to punch Chip Butty in the face but he knows he has to hold back due to this being the new owner of the company. Instead, he steps away and grabs at his hair before returning to Chip in the centre of the ring.
Every week, I get put in another ridiculous match thought up on the spot. It’s not fair. Dammit, I’m a nine-time World Champion, I deserve to be treat better.
Edge, I have inherited the WWE with an anonymous GM. I have no problems with the actions of the GM with regards yourself or any other wrestler. I have asked the GM to reveal themselves in the near future – so you will soon get your wish – but for now the RAW General Manager continues to communicate via Michael Cole and the email. You are employed by RAW, therefore you will do as the General Manager of RAW asks. If you don’t ... you know where the door is.
The crowd cheer at the straight talking facts handed out to Edge as the new owner hands his microphone back before heading back out of the ring and up the ramp. As Chip is halfway up the ramp and Edge is looking rather annoyed, the email alert sounds through the arena and Michael Cole rises to his feet.
Can I have your attention please? I have received an email from the General Manager ... And I quote. ‘Edge ... Thank you for your comments about my performance as General Manager. It seems that the new owner is happy with me so I will continue as I see fit.’
Edge throws his microphone down in temper and glares at the new owner who is stood up on the ramp chuckling ...
‘So tonight, Edge, I have a match for you. You will compete tonight in a handicap match. It will be you, Edge ...’
Edge stands with his hands on his hips, looking at the new owner with a shake of the head ...
‘... against Michael Tarver, Heath Slater and Justin Gabriel of the Nexus. And that match will be taking place ... right ... now!’
Edge looks even more annoyed now as the crowd jeers the arrival of the three Nexus members. As they make their entrance, they stare at Chip Butty as he walks past them, a menacing look in their eyes. They descend the ramp towards the ring where Edge is waiting apprehensively.
This match is a Handicap Match. Making their way to the ring, representing the Nexus ... JUSTIN GABRIEL, HEATH SLATER and MICHAEL TARVER!
Edge vs. Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater and Michael Tarver
The three Nexus members dominate the early exchanges as they deliver a beating to the Rated-R Superstar who has the WWE Universe on his side despite his heelish comments about the General Manager. However, Edge manages to launch a comeback when he manages to toss Tarver and Slater through the ropes to the outside and hits the spear on Gabriel. With the crowd expecting a 3-count, Skip Sheffield arrives to drag the referee out of the ring to deny Edge. As the referee argues with Skip, Tarver and Slater crash a steel chair apiece into Edge’s cranium – a double con-chair-to if you like – to take back the advantage. They drag Edge to the corner to set up a 450 splash for Gabriel who hits it perfectly. Tarver takes the glory and covers Edge for 1, 2, 3!
WINNER (4:53): JUSTIN GABRIEL, HEATH SLATER and MICHAEL TARVER!
Here are your winners ... THE NEXUS!
The three members of Nexus stride up the ramp congratulating each other and celebrating with Skip Sheffield on the stage. As they look back to the ring, Edge appears to start losing control and slams his hands down on the mat. He turns to face the GM’s laptop and starts to shout out at the laptop to the crowd’s amusement. Then the email alert sound echoes through the arena. What does the GM want now?
May I have your attention, please? I have another email from the General Manager ... And I quote. ‘Edge. I hope you have now learnt your lesson. The General Manager does not tolerate threats, insults or questioning of how I run things. Remember that in the future and you will be fine. If you don’t, be prepared for a lot worse.’
Edge storms out of the ring, muttering under his breath, towards the stage. At the top of the stage, he turns and scowls one more time before he walks out, slamming his hand against the RAW set as he leaves.
********** COMMERCIAL **********
RAW returns as the WWE Champion, Randy Orton, heads out to the ring for the main event. He struts to the ring with the WWE Title belt draped over his shoulder and heads to the corner to perform his title pose in the corner of the ring.
This match is set for one fall. In the ring, weighing 245 pounds, from St. Louis, Missouri ... he is the WWE Champion, RANDY ORTON!
The crowd roar as their latest hero is introduced and he jumps down to the mat and awaits the arrival of the NXT Season 1 winner and leader of the Nexus ...
And his opponent ... weighing 265 pounds, from Manchester, England ... WADE BARRETT!
Wade Barrett slowly makes his way out onto the RAW stage and is shadowed by his sidekicks from the Nexus group: Skip Sheffield, Michael Tarver, Heath Slater, Justin Gabriel and David Otunga. They slowly makes their way towards the ring, dressed in the black shirts with the yellow Nexus logo on the front, and Barrett begins to gesture towards the WWE champion in the ring. The referee is talking to the ring announcer, Justin Roberts, as Barrett steps through the ropes.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I have just been informed by the referee that the other five members of the group, Nexus, are banned from ringside for this contest.
The crowd erupts, Orton smiles a sadistic smile and Barrett and the Nexus proceed to argue and try to intimidate the referee who stands firm. Barrett grabs the referee by the scruff of his shirt but Orton runs over and attacks Barrett, pushing the referee away, and clotheslining the leader of the Nexus over the top rope. Other referees come from the back to usher the Nexus group away as Wade Barrett looks on incensed.
Randy Orton vs. Wade Barrett
The referee signals for the bell when the Nexus members have been escorted out of the arena and Wade Barrett slides back into the ring with a few words of contempt for the referee. Orton walks over slowly and Barrett stares him out, the two men sizing each other up before they begin, before the two begin to trade pushes to the chest. Eventually, Orton has had enough and begins to force Barrett back with right hands into the corner of the ring. Barrett counters with a knee to the gut and proceeds to throw Orton through the ropes and out of the ring before he walks away with his arms raised to the crowd.
Orton slithers back into the ring and looks up at Barrett from the mat, slowly getting to his feet, as the two men face up to each other again. Orton takes control with thrusting uppercuts to Barrett before he forces Barrett down with a reverse chinlock. He holds this move on Barrett who is laid back on the mat now with the referee asking if he wants to give it up. Orton intensifies the grip on Barrett but the Nexus leader manages to grasp the rope forcing the break and Orton jumps up quickly. He begins to target the limbs of Barrett as he delivers a stomp to the hand and wrist of Barrett before moving to the ankle joints on his legs. Circling Barrett, Orton continues to stomp at his opponents’ joints before hauling him back up to a sitting position to resume the chinlock.
Barrett manages to get back to his feet and fires Orton off towards the ropes but Orton hits a perfect drop kick on his return sending Barrett crashing through the ropes to the outside again to the cheers of the crowd.
Can Wade Barrett get back in this match and take a giant step towards a WWE Title shot? We’ll find out ... in a moment.
********** COMMERCIAL **********
Randy Orton and Wade Barrett are now outside the ring trading blows. The replay shows Barrett crashing Orton into the steel ring steps during the break but Orton is now mounting a comeback from that.
Here comes Orton with right hands to Barrett ... Time to move, King!
Orton whips Barrett into the announce table and the Nexus leader collides gut first with the table and sprawls over it in pain whilst Orton soaks in the cheers of the crowd. The referee orders Orton back into the ring and he slides back in to allow the referee to count. At the count of 7, Barrett climbs up on the mat but Orton meets him coming in and grips him in a headlock ready for a DDT through the ropes. He drags Barrett through and sets himself before crashing Barrett down to the mat head-first to the delight of the fans.
Orton is now looking in control of the match. As Barrett launches a counter, Orton ducks under his flailing arm and hits an inverted headlock backbreaker, bending Barrett’s back across his own. The crowd begin to chant ‘RKO! RKO!’ and Orton, on cue, drops to the mat and starts pounding his fists ... building up the suspense as Barrett groggily gets to his feet ... Orton up to his feet and stalking his prey, the Viper ready to pounce ... Barrett turns around and RKO! Orton hits his finisher and Barrett is laid out on the mat. Orton slithers over and makes the cover ... 1 ... 2 ... Wait a minute!
Damn it, that’s Sheamus! What’s he doing out here?
Sheamus drags Orton out of the ring, pounding him to the skull ... King, he looks annoyed after Orton defeated him last night!
Sheamus continues his assault, as the bell is rung at the referee’s command, by whipping Orton into the barricade at ringside. Orton writhes in pain as the Celtic Warrior stands back waiting ... As Orton gets to his feet, Sheamus charges towards him and hits the Brogue Kick perfectly to send Orton crashing down. Sheamus pulls the steel steps apart and stands with one foot up on the first step. He drags Orton up by the head and sets him up for the Irish Cross ... he lifts him up onto his shoulders, positions Orton and climbs up to the second step ... before allowing Orton to slide forwards and down onto the back of his neck on the padded ringside area.
WINNER (11:23): RANDY ORTON (DQ)!
Your winner, as a result of a disqualification ... RANDY ORTON!
Sheamus smirks and heads for the timekeeper’s table where the WWE Title is kept. He wrenches it out of the timekeeper’s hands and positions it on his shoulder before sauntering away past the prone body of Randy Orton and up the ramp. With the crowd booing and jeering, Sheamus holds the title up high and thumps his chest before exiting with Orton’s title belt.
The camera pans back to Orton who is laid out still on the ringside floor as the show fades away to black.
