Re: GCB's WWE
MONDAY NIGHT RAW!
Live from Indianapolis, Indiana
*** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO *** PYRO ***
Welcome to Monday Night Raw with me, Michael Cole, and my partner, Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler. Tonight is the final RAW before Sunday’s ‘No Mercy’ pay-per-view so there is excitement guaranteed tonight!
I can’t wait to see all the action tonight ... let’s get started!
And we’re going to start, King, with the WWE Champion!
Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome ... the WWE Champion ... RANDY ORTON!
The crowd go wild as the champion struts defiantly to the ring, a gleam in his eye, with the WWE Championship draped over his shoulder. Wearing his RKO shirt and his trunks, Orton slowly enters the ring and is bathed in flashlights as he holds the title aloft in each corner of the ring before standing central as the music fades out.
Tonight, me and my ‘No Mercy’ challenger, Sheamus ...
The crowd boo at the sound of the name of the Irish challenger who is looking to win back the WWE Title after losing it to Orton at ‘Night of Champions’ in the 6-pack challenge.
Sheamus and I face an opponent each in a ‘Beat the Clock’ challenge where the General Manager is going to reward one of us before ‘No Mercy’ on Sunday. Now I sure don’t need rewarding by the General Manager but I am aware that Sheamus needs to take every chance he can get. And that concerns me a little – so I am out here to demand that the General Manager tells us what the reward will be before the matches.
Orton stands and waits for the GM’s response and sure enough, the lights in the arena flash and the e-mail message alert rings out. Michael Cole stands up to announce it.
May I have your attention please? I have just received an e-mail from the anonymous Raw General Manager ...
The crowd jeer Cole as he steps up to the GM laptop to announce the GM’s answer to Orton.
And I quote ... Randy Orton. In the last few weeks and months, Sheamus and yourself have been getting into a rather heated rivalry over the WWE Championship. However, it is nearly time for you both to move on to other challenges. So first of all, I have an announcement to make – your match at ‘No Mercy’ will be the last match between you for the WWE Title this year. If you win, you move on. If Sheamus wins, you get no rematch.
Orton smirks as though the idea that he might lose has never crossed his mind ...
As well as this, I have decided that the match at ‘No Mercy’ deserves to be more than just a straightforward wrestling contest. Therefore, the match at ‘No Mercy’ will have a stipulation, a match type if you please. At ‘No Mercy’ on Sunday, it will be Randy Orton against Sheamus and it will ...
Sheamus’ music suddenly interrupts Michael Cole and the pasty-skin Irish challenger to Orton’s WWE Championship makes his way towards the ring. As he gets into the ring, he looks unfazed by the cocky looking champion, Orton, and looks at him dismissively as he picks up a microphone.
Hold on a minute, fella. The General Manager of Raw cannot make an announcement like this without both the participants in the ring, can he?
Like I said, at ‘No Mercy’ on Sunday, it will be Randy Orton against Sheamus and it will be ... whatever match the winner of tonight’s ‘Beat the Clock’ challenge decides on. The winner will get to choose whatever match they want to participate in this Sunday.
Both men look confident but it is Sheamus that begins to talk first.
You’d better pray that you win the ‘Beat the Clock’ challenge tonight, Orton. That way, fella, at ‘No Mercy’ you’ll only lose your title to me. If I win tonight, you’ll not only lose the title but I might end your career as well. And when I do, there will be no rematch. You’ll go right to the back of the line, Orton, where you belong ...
Orton suddenly launches across at Sheamus and hits an RKO on the unsuspecting challenger before standing over his opponent whilst the crowd cheer and chant his name.
The only thing that I need to worry about at ‘No Mercy’ is making sure I hit the RKO. And when I do that, Sheamus ... you’ll be glad that you won’t be stepping in the ring with me again.
Orton’s music restarts as Orton picks up the WWE Title and slowly leaves the ring. As a dazed Sheamus begins to sit up and stare out at Orton, he lifts the WWE Title before turning away and leaving the Celtic Warrior cursing in the ring.
********** COMMERCIAL **********
Welcome back to Monday Night Raw and during the commercial break, we were informed by the General Manager who the opponents for tonight’s ‘Beat the Clock’ challenge will be tonight.
For Sheamus, he will face the ‘Fortunate Son’ Ted DiBiase whilst the champion, Randy Orton will face the 300 pound powerhouse, Ezekiel Jackson.
And the winner, Cole, will get to choose the match type for ‘No Mercy’ and the WWE Championship match.
And while we’re talking about the ‘Beat the Clock’ challenge matches, what a massive chance for DiBiase and Jackson to push themselves into contention for a future title match, King?
Oh, too right. Everybody is assuming that Orton and Sheamus will win their matches tonight but DiBiase and Jackson will be thinking very differently. A win tonight for one of those young men and they could be in with a title opportunity at our next pay-per-view, ‘Cyber Sunday’ in four weeks time.
Oh boy, King, here he comes! Mr. Money In The Bank, The Miz!
The Miz strides out with his battered ‘Money In The Bank’ briefcase in his hands and his faithful ‘assistant’ Alex Riley besides him, both dressed ready for action. They head towards the ring with Miz looking confident and Riley instructing the fans to respect him.
This match is set for one fall and is a Two-on-One Handicap Match. First, at a combined weight of 471 pounds ... ALEX RILEY and THE MIZ!
And their opponent ... from Aberdeen, Washington, he is the United States Champion ... DANIEL BRYAN!
Daniel Bryan heads for the ring with the US Title around his waist and waving to the WWE Universe as he does. Waiting in the ring for him, The Miz has a microphone ready to talk before the Handicap Match ...
Daniel Bryan ... Congratulations. At ‘Night of Champions’ you made The Miz tap out ...
A ‘You Tapped Out!’ chant begins which Alex Riley begins to try and stop but the Miz shakes his head and looks nonplussed.
Like I told all you morons last week, I only tapped out so that my NXT Season 1 rookie, Daniel Bryan, could become the US Champion making me the first mentor to have a rookie as champion here in the WWE!
Bryan stares straight at the Miz and shakes his head, clearly telling the Miz what he thinks of these claims ...
I do not need the US Championship, all I need is this ...
Miz raises his briefcase high so that Daniel Bryan and the WWE Universe can see it whilst Riley claps like a trained seal.
... I am the ‘Money In The Bank’ contract holder and I can choose any time from now until next summer to cash this contract in. Every man who has held this briefcase has gone on to win the WWE Title or the World Heavyweight Championship. I am effectively the WWE Champion already!
Daniel Bryan laughs at the Miz whilst the WWE Universe boo him and another ‘You Tapped Out!’ chant begins whilst the Miz chuckles to himself.
Really? Really? ... Really? You think that I tapped out because Daniel Bryan had me beaten? I tapped out so he could be the US Champion, I tapped out so that in six days time at ‘No Mercy’ my man Alex Riley ... my second NXT rookie ... could show the world that he was the better of my rookies and knock Daniel Bryan right off his perch.
Riley stands besides the Miz and stares into the eyes of Daniel Bryan telling him that he is going to win the US Championship on Sunday.
And what am I going to do? I’m going to sit back and watch Alex destroy Daniel Bryan here ... and then I might ... or I might not ... head down to the ring at the end of the Randy Orton and Sheamus match and cash in my contract.
The crowd boo at the Miz but he is in full flow now ... Riley and Bryan continue to stare each other out whilst the Miz hits his finishing comment ...
I can do whatever I please and do you know why? It’s because I’m The Miz ... and I’m ... AWESSSSOMMMMMEEE!
As Miz finishes, he suddenly lurches over and smashes his briefcase into the side of Daniel Bryan’s unsuspecting head whilst his attention is on Alex Riley. As the referee tends to Bryan, Riley and the Miz celebrate in their corner preparing for their match ...
********** COMMERCIAL **********
RAW returns with a replay of the Miz’ briefcase shot to the head of the US Champion, Daniel Bryan, before the break. Further footage showing Bryan being escorted up the ramp is shown before Bryan refuses to go and turns to head back into the ring.
What a fantastic plan from the Miz, King, taking Daniel Bryan down to his knees with that briefcase shot there.
Fantastic? Reprehensible maybe but not fantastic, Cole.
Well it looks as if Daniel Bryan has more guts than brains, King, he is ready to face Miz and Riley. No doubt this is his way of gaining respect from the Universe but I predict that he is going to add to his already impressive loss count here in the WWE tonight.
What is your problem with Daniel Bryan? Leave the kid alone, he is making it here in the WWE, he has legitimately won the US Title ...
Legitimately? The Miz gave him the US Title, King, he just told everyone ...
Two on One Handicap Match
The Miz and Alex Riley vs. Daniel Bryan
With Bryan suffering the effects of the shot to his temple before, Riley takes advantage with a fast start that has the champion down on the mat. He tags in the Miz who carries on with the beatdown, using the ropes for additional leverage a number of times, with the referee close to disqualifying him on several occasions. Suddenly though, Bryan turns the tables and begins to fight back almost locking the Miz into a submission move which Miz struggles out of and tags in Riley. Riley looks to continue the beating of Bryan but Bryan counters again and begins to fight back with impressive kicks that have Riley in trouble. Bryan locks in the ‘LeBell Lock’ which has Riley close to tapping out but the Miz distracts the referee as Riley taps out. The referee misses it and Bryan asks Miz what he is doing. With Miz and Bryan desperate to get at each other, Riley suddenly rolls Bryan up into a schoolboy and holds the tights ... 1 ... 2 ... 3!
WINNER (3:59): ALEX RILEY and THE MIZ
Here are your winners ... THE MIZ and ALEX RILEY!
Daniel Bryan looks incensed and attacks Riley again after the bell and locks him up in the ‘LeBell Lock’ a second time. Riley is tapping out again in full view of the world but Miz creeps into the ring behind Bryan with the briefcase and breaks the hold. Miz pounds at the back of Bryan’s neck before setting the briefcase down on the mat and hitting a ‘Skull-Crushing Finale’ onto the briefcase, smashing Bryan’s head into the metal case.
Miz and Alex Riley exit the ring with Miz holding his briefcase high and Riley continuing to signal how he will be US Champion at ‘No Mercy’ despite the fact that he clearly tapped out twice to Bryan tonight.
You have gotta’ hand it to the Miz, King, that was impressive.
I’ll grudgingly give the Devil it’s due and say it was ... effective, Cole. But I’m not sure that I agree with the idea that Riley can be US Champion without help from the Miz this Sunday.
Well, the only reason that Bryan won the US Title in the first place was through help from the Miz so maybe that would be karma for Daniel Bryan to lose it that way too.
We head backstage for an interview where Josh Matthews is stood waiting.
Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time ... Chris Jericho!
The sound of the crowd in the arena booing is audible as Jericho swans into shot ready for Matthews’ questions.
Chris, last week, you took out John Morrison after he challenged you to a match at ‘No Mercy’ ...
A video replay of Jericho’s attack is played showing Jericho leaving Morrison’s unconscious body lying backstage afterwards ...
With John Morrison missing tonight, I would like to ask you whether or not you are going to accept his challenge for a match at ‘No Mercy’ this Sunday?
Jericho smirks and snatches the microphone away from Matthews ...
Give me that microphone and get out of my face, Matthews. You’re the same as all these useless sycophants here tonight in Inidanapolis. You want to know everything now, you demand it, there’s no patience. You come out here every week asking your stupid questions and annoying every one of the WWE Superstars. And now you’re here with me, annoying me, the top of the tree, the best in the world at what I do.
The crowd outside in the arena jeer Jericho but he carries on regardless ...
I deserve more respect from people like Morrison. Who does he think he is? What has he ever done? Has he ever beaten Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock in the same night? Was he ever the first Undisputed Champion? No ... But he thinks he can make a name from me? On Sunday at ‘No Mercy,’ I will show John Morrison what happens to people who don’t show Chris Jericho respect ... So, Josh, yes, I will accept his challenge.
Jericho smirks and looks supremely confident about his match.
And shall I tell you how confident I am that I will win? If I don’t win, I will leave the WWE ... for good!
The cameras return to the arena and to the announce table where Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole are looking shocked at Jericho’s proclamation that he will leave the WWE if he loses.
A shocking revelation there from Chris Jericho, King!
If Chris Jericho loses to John Morrison at ‘No Mercy’ on Sunday, he will leave the WWE for good? I shall be cheering for John Morrison for sure!
Oh come on, King, Jericho is one of the best superstars in the WWE today!
He’s also got a big mouth that needs shutting up, Michael, John Morrison is more than capable of ending Chris Jericho’s career this Sunday!
So tonight could be Chris Jericho’s final appearance on Monday Night Raw – and with his current losing streak, his confidence better not be misplaced!
‘No Mercy’ this Sunday is going to be great, Cole ...
And here comes Edge!
And he really doesn’t look pleased, does he?
Not surprising, King, last week he was demanding answers from the General Manager when this happened ...
Replays are shown showing Edge demanding some answers from the GM and being interrupted by the new WWE owner, Chip Butty, who told him that the GM had his full support. The GM then emails Michael Cole and puts Edge in a Handicap Match against Michael Tarver, Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater of the Nexus where he is beaten easily.
The camera returns with an intense and angry looking Edge stood in the ring with a microphone ...
Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome ... The Rated-R Superstar! EDGE!
Edge looks around the arena and lifts the microphone to speak as his music fades out. However, before he can utter a word, the lights flash and the e-mail alert sounds out through the arena ... Edge shouts at Michael Cole as he gets up to read the e-mail to Edge.
Can I have your attention please? I have received another email from the anonymous RAW General Manager ... And I quote ...
The crowd boo loudly at these words as it seems that the GM is not proving to be the most popular person in the world lately ...
‘Edge ... Last week, you accused me of treating your unfairly and you complained to the new boss of the WWE. However, he backed me and gave me chance to continue your punishment for speaking out against me. I hope that the defeat to the Nexus has taught you a lesson or two.’
Edge looks fit to explode as he pulls at his hair and leans over the rope demanding that Michael Cole tells him who the General Manager is.
‘Tonight, I decided to interrupt you before you could say anything that you might regret. That’s why I have instructed that your microphone be silenced while Michael Cole reads my email.’
Edge pats the top of the microphone but no sound is heard in the arena and Edge – in a fit of rage – hurls the microphone towards Michael Cole.
‘Now tonight, Edge, I am not going to punish you further. I have a match for you though – a classic RAW match. You see, Chris Jericho might not be around after tonight ... so I have decided that he should compete tonight. Now you two have sympathised with each other recently ... but not tonight. Tonight, one on one, it will be the Rated-R Superstar, Edge, against the man who is the best in the world at what he does – Chris Jericho ...’
Edge flips in the ring and shakes his head at the match made by the GM ...
‘Oh, and Edge ... The match will be decided by pinfall or submission only. So no cheap way out ... and the match will be next!’
Chris Jericho struts out seemingly not bothered that he has to face Edge tonight. As he makes his way to the ring, RAW heads into another commercial.
********** COMMERCIAL **********
RAW returns with Chris Jericho and Edge in the ring ready for action.
Edge vs. Chris Jericho
Edge and Jericho wrestler their usual high-quality match with both men hitting several of their usual signature moves in a back and forth contest. The WWE Universe gets behind Edge and chant ‘Spear!’ on several occasions as Edge looks for the win; however, Jericho always manages to counter out of the predicament and stay in the match. As the match nears its climax, Jericho and Edge clothesline each other at the same time and both lay out on the canvas with the referee counting them out ... Both men begin to stagger to their feet but it is Edge that staggers to his feet first, a kick to the gut of Jericho sets up the Impaler DDT which Edge uses to drive Jericho’s face into the mat. He covers Jericho ... 1 ... 2 ... Jericho kicks out just in time to the ‘Ooh’ from the crowd. Edge stomps Jericho in the gut several times before reversing towards the corner of the ring, tugging at his hair like a mad man, pleading with Jericho to get to his feet. A chant of ‘Spear! Spear!’ starts again and the crowd anticipate the final blow to Jericho as he slowly gets up. As he turns around to face Edge, the Rated-R Superstar sets off across the ring looking for the Spear but Jericho dodges the bullet at the last moment and helps Edge on towards the corner where his shoulder connects with the ring-post. As Edge staggers out of the corner clutching his shoulder, Jericho sets himself before hitting the Codebreaker to the annoyance of the watching crowd. Edge is prone on the mat as Jericho covers looking to end his losing streak ... 1 ... 2 ... 3! The referee turns to signal the victory for Jericho but then sees it ... Edge’s foot is up on the rope! Jericho goes mad as the referee rules out the 3-count, pointing to Edge’s foot, getting into the official’s face and threatening him ... Edge slowly recovers and sneaks up behind Jericho, pulling him down into a Schoolboy pin ... 1 ... 2 ... 3!
WINNER (10:04): EDGE
Here is your winner ... EDGE!
Edge slides out of the ring and reverses up the ramp with his hands held high, a knowing look in his eye as he stares back at a disbelieving Jericho. Jericho looks desperate and a look of despair floods his face as he realises that he has lost again. All his usual bravado trickles away from his face and Jericho leaves the ring a shadow of his usual cocky self, shaking his head and looking around with a worried look on his face ...
********** COMMERCIAL **********
RAW returns with Jey Uso stood in the ring with his brother, Jimmy, at ringside.
The following contest is set for one fall. In the ring, from San Francisco, California, weighing 240 pounds ... JEY USO!
On Smackdown last Friday, Jey’s brother Jimmy was in action against the co-tag team champion, Cody Rhodes, ahead of their title match this Sunday at ‘No Mercy’ ...
Highlights of the end of the match are shown as Cody Rhodes hits the ‘Crossroads’ finisher to Jimmy. After the match, Drew McIntyre uses the tag team title belt to smash into Jey Uso to leave the challengers in a heap on the floor ...
His opponent, accompanied to the ring by Cody Rhodes, from Ayr, Scotland, weighing 18 stone ... he is the current WWE Tag Team Champion ... DREW McINTYRE!
Drew McIntyre and Cody Rhodes head to the ring with the Tag Team Titles strapped around their waists, slowly and arrogantly walking to the ring ... As they approach the ring, The Usos slide out of the ring to confront them over their actions last Friday night ...
It looks like the Usos want to start ‘No Mercy’ tonight, Cole ...
The Usos attack the Tag Team Champions who are shocked and are struck to the floor on the rampway with the referee desperately trying to split the four men up. The Usos pound away at their fallen ‘No Mercy’ opponents, desperate for revenge for the attack on Smackdown ... Eventually, the referee splits up the fight and ushers the Usos away ... The referee decides to eject Jimmy Uso from ringside and sends him away but he doesn’t eject Cody Rhodes as well.
Drew McIntyre vs. Jey Uso
With Cody Rhodes at ringside holding both Tag Team Titles, Jey Uso is all alone with both Tag Team Champions as he faces McIntyre. Without his backup, it doesn’t take the Sinister Scotsman long to take advantage as he starts to teach the son of Rikishi a lesson or two. With Drew and Cody enjoying the match, Jey attempts a fightback with some punches but his leg is caught by Cody as he looks for a clothesline and Drew hooks in the ‘Future Shock’ DDT and covers for the victory. Another win for the Tag Team Champs!
WINNER (4:01): DREW McINTYRE
Here is your winner ... DREW McINTYRE!
Both Cody Rhodes and Drew McIntyre circle the fallen Jey Uso with an evil look of intent on their faces as he lays on his back in pain from the DDT. As they look to pick him up and deliver a message to him ahead of Sunday, Jimmy Uso comes rushing out again yielding a steel chair and McIntyre and Rhodes decide to scraper out of the ring and away ... As they back way, the raise the titles high and laugh at the intense look on Jimmy’s face, clearly confident about their title match to come.
The camera cuts backstage where Josh Matthews is stood with the self proclaimed co-Womens Champions, Laycool ... Layla and Michelle McCool are admiring each other’s outfits and title belts as Josh begins to talk.
Please welcome the co-Women’s Champions ... Laycool. Ladies, I believe you wanted time to address Melina?
We did Josh, we did ... Last Friday, Melina showed up on our show – Smackdown ...
So rude, so rude ...
- and she decided to try and embarrass us.
At least she wasn’t crying this time, ‘Chelle ...
So tonight, we’re on her show to issue a challenge to Melina.
Because we’re flawless!
If Melina is so desperate for another shot at our Divas Titles, she can have a shot. However, it will be on our terms, won’t it Lay?
We are the champions, ‘Chelle, so we call the shots here. If she wants to win the Divas Title ...
She will have to beat us both!
She’ll need to face both me and Layla in two separate matches and if she wins both of them, she’ll be the Divas Champion!
What fantastic champions we are ... We’re giving her a shot – even though she doesn’t really deserve it! And ... errr, what do you want?
Alex Riley moves into shot and ushers the Divas Champions away ...
Ladies, nobody is interested in your petty squabbles about the Divas Title on Sunday. On Sunday, it will be a momentous night for two reasons. First of all, I – Alex Riley – will defeat Daniel Bryan and win the US Championship ... and then ...
The arrogant Miz edges past Laycool as well who look very put out and storm off in a huff. Miz laughs and takes the microphone.
... and then, maybe, just maybe ... I might pop down to the ring at the end of the match between Sheamus and Randy Orton. Who knows? I might decide the time is right to become the new WWE Champion instead of being Mr. Money In The Bank. Because I’m the Miz ... and I’m ... awesome!
********** COMMERCIAL **********
Ladies and Gentlemen, the following contest is set for one fall and is the first match in the ‘Beat the Clock!’ challenge. Whichever superstar out of Randy Orton and Sheamus wins in the quickest time will get to decide the match type for their match for the WWE Title at ‘No Mercy’ ...
Introducing first, from West Palm Beach Florida, accompanied to the ring by Maryse ... TED DiBIASE!
The ‘Fortunate Son’ heads down to the ring with the stunning Maryse on his arm and the glittering Million Dollar Title slung over his shoulder. He holds the ropes for Maryse to enter the ring and looks determined to make a big splash in tonight’s main event ...
And making his way to the ring, from Dublin, Ireland, weighing in at 272 pounds ... SHEAMUS!
This Sunday at ‘No Mercy’ the Irish superstar Sheamus will get his rematch for the WWE Title he lost at ‘Night of Champions’ in our last Pay-Per-View ... Can the first ever Irish born WWE Champion win back his gold at the first attempt – his only attempt – this Sunday?
This will be Sheamus’ only chance to win the title back after our GM stated earlier tonight that this will be the last match between Orton and Sheamus in 2010 for the WWE Title ...
He could give himself a great opportunity tonight though if he can win the ‘Beat the Clock’ challenge. Whichever one of Sheamus and Randy Orton can win quickest will be choosing the type of match for the WWE Championship match at ‘No Mercy’ this Sunday.
That’s assuming that Sheamus and Randy Orton win their matches, Cole ... DiBiase looks intent on spoiling the party and when you’ve got someone like Maryse cheering you on, you can do amazing things!
Ted DiBiase vs. Sheamus
Yet again, a dominant performance from Sheamus as he quickly takes control of the match with DiBiase. After an even opening, Sheamus begins to use his power to hurt DiBiase and has the young star reeling. Out of nowhere, Sheamus – in a hurry to get on with the match – hits a sudden Brogue Kick to DiBiase and covers him for the pin. 1 ... 2 ... 3!
WINNER (3:57): SHEAMUS
Here is your winner in a time of 3 minutes and 57 seconds ... SHEAMUS!
Sheamus smiles to himself as he exits the ring and makes his way back to the stage area. He looks confident that his time will not be beaten by Orton in the final match of the night to come ...
The camera heads backstage where John Cena is walking ... The crowd roar at the sight of Cena and cheer his name but then a figure appears behind him and attacks. This is quickly revealed as Nexus member Michael Tarver who is attacking Cena and trying to take him out. Cena looks in trouble at first but then rallies and fights back using various areas backstage to slam and run Tarver into head first ... He leaves the Nexus member prone backstage and carries on his journey out to the arena ...
The usual mixture of cheers and boos greets the arrival of John Cena as he bounds out onto the stage and salutes the crowd. He runs down to the ring and throws his hat into the crowd before taking a microphone.
Whatever you think of me, whether you like me or not, I have never ever backed down from adversity. For the last few months, Nexus have been targeting me and attacking me at every opportunity. They want to make a statement and to make a statement in the WWE ... you go after the top guy. In a way, it’s a compliment that they attack me ... I just wish it didn’t involve five of them taking me out when my back is turned! The fact is Barrett and Nexus have been sneak-attacking me for months now and I have had enough. So it’s time to be a man, Wade Barrett ... Me and you, one on one, ‘No Mercy’ – simple as that.
Cena stands and waits looking towards the titantron and stage area ... and very quickly ...
Wade Barrett steps out onto the stage – alone – holding a microphone and looking straight at Cena in the ring. He stops at the top of the ramp, places the microphone down ... and begins to applaud in Cena’s direction.
Thank you, John Cena! You have identified the weakest link in the Nexus – Michael Tarver! From now on, you won’t have to worry about him. I sent him to attack you because I wanted to see how he coped alone. We always say that ‘you’re either Nexus or you’re against us’ ... well, now we know ... Tarver is against us. His pathetic attempt to attack you proves that.
Cena stares back at Barrett, looking around nervously as if expecting an attack any moment ...
Now as for your little speech just then, you’re right. The Nexus identified you as the man that we needed to make an example of to get noticed in the WWE. We went after the top dog, the main man, the face of the WWE ... and we reduced him to a blubbering wreck time after time after time ... You see, Cena, we’re getting rather bored of it now. There are other men to chase now – bigger stars to take out ...
The crowd boo this last comment as Barrett smiles defensively ...
It’s true. There is a new WWE Champion and the Nexus want to switch their attention to him now. But it seems as if we have one last piece of business to deal with with you Cena first ... So, at ‘No Mercy’ on Sunday, I accept your challenge. It will be John Cena against Wade Barrett ...
The crowd cheer Barrett’s comments for a change as he accepts Cena’s challenge and Cena smiles at the news, nodding his head in approval, whilst Barrett pauses for a moment ...
... on one condition.
Now the crowd and Cena are not so happy. Cena starts mouthing towards the Nexus leader and the crowd boo and jeer but Barrett is unfazed and unmoved and holds up his hand for quiet ... Eventually, he gets it.
Cena, I want a shot at the WWE Title and I know that after ‘No Mercy’ this Sunday, either Sheamus or Randy Orton will be champion and will be needing a new challenger. So I propose this to you and the General Manager ... John Cena against Wade Barrett at ‘No Mercy’ ... and the winner gets a shot at the WWE Title!
Cena and the WWE Universe seem happy with this announcement from Wade Barrett and we await the answer from the General Manager ... after a few seconds, the email alert sounds and the lights flash as Michael Cole heads for the laptop again.
And I quote ... ‘John Cena and Wade Barrett at ‘No Mercy’ with the winner challenging next for the WWE Championship? Confirmed!’
The crowd roar their approval as Barrett and Cena glare at each other, smirking at the idea of a title shot to come ...
One more thing Cena ... At ‘No Mercy’ the winds of change will blow and change your career forever. And remember Cena ... watch your back!
Cena presses against the ropes and glares at Barrett daring him to come to the ring and threaten him. Suddenly, sneaking up behind Cena, we see the Nexus who have crept through the crowd and into the ring. Skip Sheffield crashes into the back of Cena with his forearm and Cena drops to his knees and the Nexus beat-down begins again. Barrett turns and leaves the stage as Sheffield, Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater and David Otunga each aim kicks and punches to the guts and head of the face of the WWE. The Nexus members begin to lift Cena to his feet as Skip Sheffield pulls back to the corner ready to deliver a clothesline to Cena ... However, as he is about to set off for it ...
Randy Orton rushes out and down the ramp, throwing his WWE Title down to the ground just outside the ring, before sliding into the ring. Gabriel and Slater turn their attention to the WWE Champion as Sheffield rushes at Cena but fails to hit the move as Cena escapes Otunga’s clutches. John Cena begins to fight back against Sheffield and Otunga as Orton gains the upper hand over Slater and Gabriel. Orton launches Gabriel over the top rope to the outside and Cena throws Sheffield out. At the same time, Orton hits the RKO to Slater and Cena delivers the Attitude Adjustment to David Otunga and they roll away. Orton and Cena look at each other with a look of respect and gratitude being shown for a moment ... but then Orton pounces and hits the RKO to Cena as well!
RKO from Orton to Cena! What was that for?
It’s a message from the champion, Cole, to John Cena. If Cena wins at ‘No Mercy’ then he could well be facing the Viper!
Randy Orton with a huge impact here tonight already ... and next up, the Viper will face Ezekiel Jackson in the second ‘Beat the Clock!’ challenge. Can he win in a quicker time than Sheamus’ 3 minutes and 57 second victory earlier tonight?
********** COMMERCIAL **********
RAW returns with Randy Orton in the ring with his music, ‘Voices,’ playing in the background. A replay of his save for John Cena airs before showing the RKO to Cena that followed.
Randy Orton is ready to face Ezekiel Jackson as he aims to win quickly and make sure that he chooses the match type for ‘No Mercy’ as he faces the former champion, Sheamus ...
Tonight’s Main Event will determine what type of match this will be but we do know that there will be no rematch for the loser for the rest of 2010.
The Viper won the title at ‘Night of Champions’ but he’ll need to be at his best to hold on to the title on Sunday!
The World Heavyweight Championship will see Kane and the Undertaker clash again in a Casket Match. The Undertaker’s speciality match but the ‘Devils Favourite Demon’ believes that this is his opportunity to end the legacy of the Undertaker once and for all ...
If Kane is dominant enough to challenge the Undertaker to a Casket Match, who knows the devastation that he has planned?
As we just found out here live on Raw, John Cena and Wade Barrett will clash in a Number One Contender match with the winner guaranteed a future shot at the WWE Championship ...
Cena wants to get his hands on Barrett desperately ... but the Nexus are sure to be around at ‘No Mercy’ as well.
John Morrison challenged Chris Jericho to a match at ‘No Mercy’ and was beaten up by Chris Jericho for his troubles. Jericho is on a losing streak but has guaranteed a win on Sunday ...
He has promised that if he loses, he will leave the WWE!
The Miz let Daniel Bryan become the United States Champion at ‘Night of Champions’ and handed his rematch clause over to his NXT Season 2 rookie, Alex Riley. Can the Miz’s apprentice win the US Title in his first pay-per-view?
No doubt that the Miz will be doing all he can to make sure of it. And if he fails, we’ll hear another ridiculous excuse from you, his number one fan ...
Too right you will, King! The Tag Team Titles will be on the line as the Usos challenge the new champions, Drew McIntyre and Cody Rhodes ...
McIntyre and Rhodes seem very confident that they will be victorious after they took out Mark Henry and Evan Bourne last week ... Can the Usos pull of a shock on Sunday?
Alberto Del Rio has made a huge impact on Smackdown since his arrival taking out Rey Mysterio and injuring Christian. The Canadian superstar is determined to take revenge for himself and his injured friend, Mysterio, at ‘No Mercy’ ...
It’ll also be Del Rio’s first pay-per-view appearance – Christian will need to avoid the Arm Breaker if he is to take any kind of revenge.
And the challenge was laid down tonight by the Divas Champions, Laycool, on Raw. They were willing to give Melina another title match as long as it was a 2-on-1 Handicap match. We are expecting to hear a positive response from Melina very soon.
Let’s hope that Melina can be the one to shut up the Laycool twins once and for all!
The camera returns to the ring where Randy Orton is holding his WWE Title up high to the WWE Universe in attendance.
Sheamus beat Ted DiBiase in 3 minutes and 57 seconds earlier tonight. If Randy Orton wants to choose the match type for ‘No Mercy’ then he will need to win quicker than that now.
But he is facing a real wildcard!
The following contest is the second ‘Beat the Clock’ challenge match and Randy Orton needs to win in less than 3 minutes, 57 seconds ... In the ring, the WWE Champion ... RANDY ORTON!
The crowd erupts at the introduction of the WWE Champion as Roberts continues to introduce his opponent ...
His opponent ... weighing 285 pounds, from Guyana, South America ... EZEKIEL JACKSON!
The muscle bound Jackson poses in the ring with his arms pumped and his muscles bulging. The crowd are indifferent to him and the referee rings the bell to start the match.
Randy Orton vs. Ezekiel Jackson
Orton immediately rushes after his opponent but Jackson catches him coming in and uses his shoulder to take the Viper down. Jackson stomps down on the mid-drift of Orton and then lifts him up to deliver a scoop slam as the clock ticks down on the titantron. He covers the WWE Champion ... 1 ... 2 ... Orton kicks out but Jackson delivers forearm blows to the head of the fallen champion. He lifts Orton again and hits a back-breaker to the champion before cockily posing with his muscles again as the clock ticks down to 2:00 remaining for Orton. As Orton struggles to his feet, Jackson looks for his standing side slam finisher and lifts the champion up but Orton manages to fight out of the move and get some space between him and his opponent. As Jackson looks to grab hold of the champion again, Orton manages to wriggle around and counter with his own patented back breaker. Jackson rolls out of the ring but Orton – glancing up at the clock – goes after him and begins to drag him back. Orton pulls Jackson through the ropes and sets up for the DDT but delivers it much quicker than he usually does. The clock shows 0:43 as Orton looks up again and starts to punch the mat looking for the RKO ... waiting for Jackson to get to his feet ... the clock ticking down ... running out of time ... Jackson finally turns and Orton delivers a perfect RKO that sends his opponent crashing to the ground. Out of nowhere, Sheamus comes rushing down the ramp and up onto the ring apron where the referee is distracted. Sheamus grabs the shirt of the referee but Orton realises and rushes over to send a forearm to the head of Sheamus. Sheamus falls to the ground but the referee is sent spinning round as Orton drops down to cover Jackson pleading with the referee to make the count. Down drops the referee ... 1 ... 2 ... The 3:57 timer sounds through the arena as the referee’s hand comes down to make the 3-count and Orton looks confused as he gets to his feet. Sheamus is laid down in the aisle looking up at the titantron ... waiting for the official verdict ...
WINNER (3:58): RANDY ORTON
Here is your winner in a time of 3 minutes and 58 seconds ... RANDY ORTON! However, the winner of the ‘Beat the Clock’ challenge ... SHEAMUS!
A smile spreads across the face of the challenger, Sheamus, as Orton holds his head in his hands, an angry look spreading over his face. He glares at Sheamus and exits the ring stalking the Irish superstar as he backs away ... As Orton looks murderous, he is suddenly smashed from behind by Ezekiel Jackson with the WWE Title belt and falls to the ground clutching the back of his head. Jackson looks down at Orton in disgust and hands the title belt to Sheamus ... before leaving the stage and heading to the back. Sheamus walks around Orton and down to the ring with the title belt.
Orton! At ‘No Mercy’ on Sunday, I will end your career like I ended the career of your former mentor, Triple H. And to do that, I will choose a match where I can do whatever I like. Randy, at ‘No Mercy’ I will win back my WWE Championship ... in a Street Fight!
A buzz of excitement spreads around the arena as Sheamus throws the microphone down and glares up the ramp at Randy Orton who is laid on the stage with his head up ... As Orton holds his head, Sheamus grins and lifts Orton’s WWE Title up high sending a clear message to the champion as RAW fades to black ...
