Re: WWE 2009 - Bridging the Gap
OK well, this is my first show. I know I have a lot to learn but I think I have made a decent stab at this. I think my style is a bit different from the norm on this board as I have decided to do away with writing out matches for weekly shows unless something important happens in them. Instead I hope to focus on the character and storyline aspect more. Anyways here it is. Any feedback would be much appreciated.
WWE Monday Night Raw
April 6th 2009
Toyota Center – Houston, TX
“The Day After The Night Before”
**Video package recap of Wrestlemania from last night**
The Wrestlemania theme song plays showing the winners and big events of what happened last night. CM Punk grabbing the briefcase and celebrating with the fans, Chris Jericho beating the Legends only to get punched by Mickey Rourke, a Jeff Hardy highlight reel, Rey Mysterio’s victory over JBL, Edge sneaking his way to victory in the World Heavyweight Championship match, an extended series of clips of The Undertaker defeating Shawn Michaels and finally, things shift focus to the WWE Championship match. Triple H is shown beating on Orton until The Viper begins to regain control. Here the music changes. The screen adopts a scratchy effect. The chaos that ensued in the final few minutes of the match are seen in quick flashes……..Rhodes and DiBiase running to the ring…….Vince and Shane running down after them…………all hell breaking loose as a brawl ensues amongst everybody involved……..Orton attacking Vince with the sledgehammer………Rhodes and DiBiase taking out Shane………..Stephanie running to the ring as Orton holds the sledgehammer over her husband’s head……..Orton raising the hammer high………Stephanie trying to pull it off him………Orton slapping her hard in the face……. Triple H crawling to his knees…….Orton hitting a vicious punt to the skull as he tries to reach for his wife. The image of the brutal punt is relayed in slow motion over and over again. The camera zooms in to show the champion’s eyes roll to the back of his head as Orton stands above him with a look of pure evil on his face. He drops to the mat and the screen goes dark. The referee can be heard counting 1, 2, 3 before the screen switches to show Orton holding his newly won title in the air while the McMahon’s and Triple H lay devastated at his feet. Shane is broken on the outside. Vince is face down on the mat. Stephanie is hovering over her beaten husband, a hand covering her swollen face. The camera zooms in one final time to the cold, merciless eyes of the new WWE Champion as the package comes to an end.
**Monday Night Raw Intro Video**
The camera cuts to a wide angle of the arena where the fans in Houston are going wild, eagerly anticipating the first person to walk out from behind the curtain and kick start the show.
Cole: Ladies and gentlemen we welcome you to Monday Night Raw, live from Houston Texas where we are just about ready to kick off the aftermath of Wrestlemania and King, what an aftermath it is set to be.
King: You got that right, Michael. We have a new champion in Randy Orton and….
Cole: Let me stop you right there, King. The events of that WWE Championship match last night were chaotic. It could quite possibly be the craziest series of events to a Wrestlemania main event I have ever seen. I just have to wonder what response, if any, the McMahon’s are going to have….
King: I don’t think we are going to be seeing any of the McMahon’s, Triple H included, for a very long time. We all saw it, The Game got stretchered out of Reliant Stadium last night while Randy Orton walked out with the title. I have a feeling that the Age of Orton, as he likes to call it, is here to stay.
Cole: I guess we’ll just have to see about that. Randy Orton is scheduled to be here tonight. We’re just going to have to wait for him to address us.
King: And that wasn’t the only title match that took place last night. The Ultimate Opportunist, Edge, managed to sneak his way to victory against John Cena and The Big Show to retain his World Heavyweight Championship and I’m pretty darn sure that John will have something to say about that…..
**MY TIME IS NOW**
King doesn’t get a chance to finish his sentence as John Cena bursts onto the stage to a huge reaction from the Texan fans. He wastes no time on the ramp, sprinting to the ring and quickly grabbing a microphone while soaking in the atmosphere. A fairly loud, “CENA SUCKS” chant begins that gets his attention but he shakes it off and raises the mic to his mouth.
Cena: Well, it seems that last night didn’t turn out too well for me.
The Champ pauses while the males in attendance let out a loud cheer. He looks around the arena and the cheers only get louder. But they are quickly met with equally loud, “CENA” chants. All too soon the arena has fallen into a chant war with the man himself standing in the ring shaking his head. He waits for things to die down before speaking again.
Cena: Obviously some of you are happy about that and some of you, well, some of you aren’t. You see I promised to win the World Heavyweight Championship and get it away from the ugly…….sordid……mess that is the Edge, Vickie Guerrero, Big Show love triangle. But I couldn’t do it.
John removes his hat and rubs at his head for a moment while another loud cheer rings out which is again met with loud dueling chants.
Cena: I couldn’t get it done and all because Edge is still hiding behind Vickie to keep the title. Well I say not anymore!
The kids in attendance let out a great cheer as their hero begins to pace the ring.
Cena: Edge! This is the Raw after Wrestlemania, we are LIVE in Houston, Texas and hell, I don’t even know if I have a rematch clause but dammit I’m invoking it or outright challenging you to a rematch right here, RIGHT NOW!
Once again a loud cheer rings out around the arena as Cena’s fans make themselves heard. All heads turn to the entrance ramp, anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Heavyweight Champion. After a few seconds it’s clear that he isn’t coming.
Cena: Somehow I didn’t think you would go for that. How about this then? How about I just come back there, find your ass, drag you out to this ring and then we have the matc……
**WEE-EEEEELLLLL, WELL IT’S THE BIG SHOW**
A decent mixed pop breaks out for World’s Largest Athlete as he angrily stomps his way to the ring and glares at Cena. He grabs a mic between his huge paws and stands in front of the smaller man.
Show: You weren’t the only one in that match, Cena. And if anybody deserves a rematch, it’s ME, not you.
Cena: Hey ho! Hey ho! Pipe down big guy, pipe down. You deserve a rematch, huh? Let’s see, YOU were the guy that got pinned last night therefore YOU deserve nothing.
The big man is visibly fuming at Cena’s words and gets right in his face. Cena doesn’t back down which only angers him even more.
Show: I’m warning you, John. Don’t mess with me. I’m getting that rematch tonight and I’m going on to become the World Heavyweight Champion. I’m the World’s Largest Athlete. I’m 7 foot 2. I’m 500….
Cena: We know, we know. You’re 7 foot 2, you’re 500 pounds. You like to make out with 4 foot 2, 500 pound women like Vickie Guerrero.
A loud pop echoes around the arena at The Champ’s remark while Big Show continues to fume.
Cena: But I think you’re forgetting something. Yeah, I may not be as tall as you and I may not be as big as you. But I’m over 6 feet and over 200 pounds of solid muscle and attitude that is ready to KNOCK YOU DOWN if you get in my way.
The fans continue to cheer and a high pitched squeak erupts as Cena throws off his hat and shirt before grabbing the mic and getting right in Big Show’s face.
Cena: I’m right here, man. You want some….
Cena lets the fans finish his catchphrase as he stays in Show’s face with his fists balled at his sides. The pair look ready to go and the noise level in the arena rises, everyone anticipating the inevitable brawl until….
**YOU THINK YOU KNOW ME**
The World Heavyweight Champion finally makes his appearance to a loud chorus of boos mixed with some slight cheers from the anti-Cena fans in attendance. Dressed in jeans, a t-shirt, a leather jacket and sunglasses, Edge decides to linger on the ramp while addressing the two men he beat last night to retain his title.
Edge: Look at you guys, just look at you. You’re out here arguing with each other over a match that isn’t going to happen.
Loud boos echo around the arena and they only get louder as the Champion continues to speak.
Edge: You see, after my hard fought victory last night, I have decided to give myself the night off. So that means no rematch for either of you. Besides, Cena does raise a good point. I pinned you last night Show and therefore that puts you right out of the race. And you, John, well, I’ve beaten you so many times that any claim you have to this title has long since burned out. As far as I’m concerned, NEITHER of you deserve anything.
Edge soaks in the disapproval from the fans as he looks around the arena with a shit eating grin on his face.
Edge: And considering what happened to the McMahon family last night, there’s absolutely no one here with the authority to make me defend my title so I’m simply not going to do it.
Cena: Always the chicken’s way out, right Edge?
The camera pans back to the ring to focus on Cena as he paces up and down while Big Show stands off to the side, silently fuming still.
Cena: Randy Orton…
The mere mention of the new WWE Champion’s name brings a loud chorus of boos that forces Cena to stop for a moment before continuing.
Cena: Randy Orton attacks the McMahon’s like the coward he is and you think that means there’s nobody to force you to defend your title tonight?
Cena stop for a second and rubs his chin in thought.
Cena: I hate to tell you this but, I think you’re wrong.
He instantly drops the mic and levels Show with an unexpected low blow, quickly bringing the big man to his knees before sprinting up the ramp in hot pursuit of the champion. Unfortunately for Edge, the whole thing happened so quickly that he didn’t get a chance to run. Cena catches him easily and immediately starts throwing lefts and rights. The fans are going crazy as an all-out brawl ensues on the top of the ramp. Edge starts to fight back, throwing Cena into the large WWE sign on the ramp. He grabs his title and readies himself to take Cena out when Show surprises him from behind with a club to the back. He stumbles forward and into the hands of the recovering John Cena who automatically picks him up over his shoulders. High pitched cheers mixed with lower tone boos break out as The Champ looks set to deliver an FU. He hoists Edge up and over his shoulders and the loud thud of a body on steel rings out as the champion goes crashing onto the stage. The celebration, however, is short lived as Cena turns around and into a hard Chokeslam onto the steel. Show looks at the two battered bodies lying before him and grabs the World Championship. He looks at it for a second before raising it high in the air to loud boos as we head to the first commercial of the evening.
Cole: What a chaotic start to the show! We have John Cena issuing challenges to Edge, Big Show issuing challenges to Edge, Cena issuing challenges to Big Show and Edge issuing challenges to nobody!
King: Love him or hate him, Edge raises a very valid point though. We are without a General Manager tonight and if my gut is right, we aren’t going to have one for a good while yet. Stephanie, Vince, Shane, they’re all out. Well, at least I think that they are. I mean, there’s no way that……
Cole: Wait a second, King! Just hold on! I’m receiving word here…………can we……….can we get a camera in the back please…..
On the tron we see a shaky image of the backstage area as the cameraman along with Todd Grisham sprint through the arena and to the parking lot. Just as they round the corner a long limousine is seen pulling in. An excited pop fills the arena as the fans anxiously wait to see who it is. After a moment or two, the door opens and large security man steps out. He sweeps the immediate area before stepping aside and speaking to the person inside.
Security Man: It’s OK to come out, ma’am.
After another hesitant moment, the gasps from inside the arena can be heard as Linda McMahon steps out of the limo looking haggard and extremely upset. She completely ignores Grisham and walks right by him and on through the door. The camera pans back to Todd.
Grisham: Ah………ah……….Linda McMahon, ladies and gentlemen. Linda McMahon has just arrived and has gone into the arena. We’ll try to get more information as the night progresses.
We now cut back to the arena and to the stunned faces of Cole and King at ringside.
King: That is the last person I was expecting to step out of that limo. What is Linda McMahon doing here?
Cole: The CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment and the only McMahon that was missing from Orton’s brutal attack last night. Why is she here and what, if anything, does she have to say?
Wrestlemania rematch – WWE Unified Tag Team Championships
John Morrison and The Miz def The Colons
The cameras are back in the parking lot and we see Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase anxiously pacing around. They are obviously waiting for someone and it isn’t hard to figure out who. The fans in the arena are booing loudly at the sight of the young tag team who played an instrumental part in the destruction of the McMahon family last night at Wrestlemania. Finally a black SUV pulls in and after a moment we catch our first glimpse of the new WWE Champion as he steps out of the car. The heat is pouring in from the fans as Orton slings his title over his shoulder before noticing the expression on the faces of his partners.
Ted and Cody look at each other, neither saying anything causing their leader to get impatient.
Cody: Ummmm…..Linda McMahon is here……
Orton’s face gets tight as his jaw clenches. It seems as if he is angry but everyone is left in a state of confusion when a sick smile crosses the champions face. He walks right past his team mates, not even looking in their direction, leaving the rest of us to wonder exactly what The Viper has in mind.
We now cut to the backstage area to find Edge walking proudly around, title in hand. The champion appears to be lost as he is seen checking numerous doors.
Edge: Why the hell can’t people label doors? I’m the World Champion for God sakes!
He continues to mutter to himself until he opens a door and his face quickly goes blank. The camera pans around to show that Edge has stumbled upon the office of Linda McMahon. A substantial pop goes up for the CEO as Edge begins to apologize and moves to head out the door but he is summoned inside.
Linda: It’s alright, come inside.
Edge: Mrs McMahon……I……it’s great to see you here tonight. And can I just say that I’m so sorry about what happened to your family at Wrestlemania, I……
He stops talking at the look of utter sadness that crosses the elder woman’s face and his eyes drop to the floor.
Linda: Even though I don’t believe a word you’re saying, thank you. But that’s not why I called you in here. I heard about the opening to the show tonight and based on what happened between the three of you I’ve made a decision about tonight’s main event. We will have a number one contender’s match between The Big Show and John Cena….
The fans let out a huge roar at that announcement while the Champion begins to silently fume.
Linda: The winner of that match will go on to face you at Backlash for the World Heavyweight Championship.
Edge is motionless as he just stands there staring blankly into space.
Linda: You can leave now.
The Champion scowls before turning and leaving the room. The camera cuts back to Linda and closes in on her face. The worry lines and stress of last night’s events are apparent as we fade back to the arena.
King: We have our main event, folks! John Cena versus The Big Show with the winner getting a title shot at Backlash.
Cole: Edge didn’t look too pleased about that, King.
King: Can you blame him? He was expecting an uneventful night and now he has this to look forward too. And we still don’t know what Linda McMahon is here for although from the look on Randy Orton’s face I’m a little bit worried.
Cole: He’s sick, King. Orton is sick and I just hope that Linda steers clear from him tonight or we could end up with a repeat of Wrestlemania on our hands.
King: You don’t think he would….
Cole: I don’t know, King. I don’t know.
Jeff Hardy vs Shelton Benjamin
Winner – Jeff Hardy
As soon as the match is over Matt hardy hits the ring and attacks his brother, leaving him lying in the ring while he stalks back up the ramp, a crazy look on his face.
We cut to the back to see Chris Jericho walking down the hallway. We’ll hear from him NEXT!
**BREAK THE WALLS DOWN**
We are back from commercial and right away the self-professed Savior of the WWE is here to greet out. The fans give a generous amount of boos for Jericho who stalks to the ring with an angry look on his face. He climbs inside and glares at those sitting ringside.
Jericho: Roddy Piper. Ricky Steamboat. Jimmy Snuka. Ric Flair. You know what all these men have in common? It’s the fact that I beat them all and sent them back into retirement! Last night at Wrestlemania was supposed to be the night where I did my job and gave myself a pat on the back. But that isn’t what happened, is it?
A loud cheer fills the arena, the fans knowing full well what Jericho is talking about.
Jericho: You see Mickey Rourke had to climb inside this ring and get involved in things he has no business being involved in. Do you have any idea what I do, Mister Rourke? I end careers, I destroy legends! If you think I’m going to let you punch me in the face and just walk away then you are sorely mistaken.
Jericho pauses and looks to the ramp, his face a myriad of anger and annoyance mixed a little bit of determination.
Jericho: That’s why I’m issuing a challenge to you right now. You want to be a wrestler, huh? Why don’t you step inside this ring and I’ll show you how it’s really done, Mickey? Need I remind you that this isn’t a movie set; this is one hundred percent real. If you get inside this ring with me I’ll show you what this business is all about.
All eyes are on the stage as everybody awaits the presence of one Mickey Rourke. Jericho can be seen pacing in the ring. He has removed his tie and suit jacket while he continues to stalk the ring in anger yelling, “Come on, Mickey!” over and over again. The hype created by the challenge slowly starts to dwindle as it soon becomes apparent that he isn’t coming. Jericho stops pacing and smirks in victory.
Jericho: Just like I thought. You can play a wrestler in the movies but you can’t play one for real. That’s it, that’s fine. You can stay back there with your Golden Globe award. You don’t deserve to be this ring with me anyway, you don’t deserve to stand in the presence of greatness, of a TRUE legend in this business. You see, last night I sent the old men packin’ back to the home. There’s only one legend left in this industry right now and his name…….is Chris Jericho.
He gives another smug smile while soaking in the heat until………..
**I THINK I’M CUTE………..I KNOW I’M SEXY…..**
The fans erupt for the appearance of The Heartbreak Kid as he walks onto the stage. Something is noticeably missing however. He isn’t dancing. He isn’t smiling. This is a different Shawn Michaels than we are used to seeing. He climbs into the ring and snatches the microphone right out of Jericho’s hand to the surprise, and delight of everybody, excluding Jericho himself of course.
Shawn Michaels: You aren’t…….
“HBK!” “HBK!” “HBK!”
Shawn manages a small smile at the chant that has broken out for him and lets it die down before speaking again.
Shawn Michaels: You aren’t the only one feeling disappointed about Wrestlemania Jericho. You see I didn’t do it………….I didn’t beat The Undertaker.
A mixture of boos and cheers ring out, the crowd still divided in two camps. Jericho is smiling at the fact. There is no love lost between these two superstars after all.
Shawn Michaels: And it…..it’s killing me. So I was sitting back there listening to you issue phony challenges and talk about legends and we’ll, it got me to thinking. Undertaker, you are without a doubt, one of the biggest legends in the WWE. Last night……last night I failed to beat you. But that was then, and this is now.
Shawn seems to be getting his spirit back as he begins to pace the ring to the sound of small cheers from the fans around him.
Shawn Michaels: In four weeks, it’s Backlash. And I’m here to ask you, Deadman, I’m here to issue the challenge.
He looks into the camera and holds up a finger.
Shawn Michaels: You………..me………..one more time………no holds barred.
The fans cheer in approval, everybody eager to see part II of the classic match that took place just 24 hours prior.
Shawn Michaels: Next week on Raw, Undertaker. I’ll be waiting for my ans……
Jericho: What the hell do you think you’re doing?
Heavy boos erupt as Jericho gets right up in HBK’s face. He managed to grab a second microphone from somewhere and seems none too happy at what just went down.
Jericho: You think you’re just going to come out here on MY time and start issuing challenges? You can’t beat The Undertaker, Shawn. You’re going to fail at Backlash just like you failed last night!
The words are barely out of Jericho’s mouth before he is smacked right in the face by some good old Sweet Chin Music. A huge cheer goes up at the sight as HBK stays frozen over Jericho’s fallen body. He smirks at the man below him before looking into the camera and holding up his finger again. “One more time, deadman. One more time,” he utters as his music starts up and he exits the ring.
Cole: He just kicked Jericho damn head off!
King: More importantly than that, he just issued a challenge to The Undertaker for a No Holds Barred Match at Backlash in four weeks!
Cole: Shawn Michaels failed to get the job done in what many people are calling a truly classic matchup between the pair last night.
King: It was a classic, Cole. Both of them put everything on the line but just like everybody else before him, HBK came up short on the grandest stage of them all.
Cole: I guess we’ll have to wait until Smackdown to find out if The Undertaker will accept the challenge. He beat Shawn already, can he do it again?
The camera’s cut backstage to show Big Show in his locker room getting ready for the main event. A door is heard clicking shut and he looks up to find Vickie Guerrero in his room. The heat from the arena is unbearable and she hasn’t even spoken yet.
Vickie: Excuse me, Show?
Show: You don’t need to be excused, Vickie, what is it?
Vickie: I’m sorry you didn’t win the championship last night. I came to see if you’re OK.
Show: You know what? I don’t need this right now. I didn’t win the World Title and you know why? It’s because I’ve been too focused on all of this, too focused on you. Tonight I have the chance to get the title back and that’s exactly what I’m going to do. You don’t fit in those plans, Vickie.
Vickie: What are you saying?
Show: I’m saying you can leave.
The fans pop big for that statement as Vickie gets a pure look of fury on her face. She screams and goes to walk right into Show’s personal space until he stand up, completely towering over her stopping her dead in her tracks.
Show: I wouldn’t do that if I were you.
The pair just stare at each other for a few tension filled seconds until Vickie lets out another impatient and angry scream before turning on her heel and stalking out the door.
MVP & CM Punk vs The Legacy
Winner – MVP & CM Punk
Cut to the back where Randy Orton is seen simply shaking his head at what just happened in the ring. His passive nature is rather disturbing and only adds to the ominous feeling of what might happen later tonight.
From here a video package plays showing the events leading up to the WWE championship match at Wrestlemania between Triple H and Randy Orton. The video focuses on the main events of the actual match, in particular, the closing stretch. It ends with a montage of Orton attacking each and every member of the McMahon family, concluding with the vicious punt to the head of The Game and closing with Orton holding the Championship high above his head while Stephanie McMahon cried over her fallen husband.
Cole: Once again ladies and gentlemen, the events that closed the show last night.
King: I have a bad feeling about Orton tonight. He seems calm, way too calm considering the fact that Linda McMahon is here.
Cole: Why shouldn’t he be calm, King? He’s already taken every member of her family out and he’s the WWE Champion!
King: I still have a bad feeling, Michael, a very bad feeling.
The time has finally come for the main event.
**WEEEEEEELLLLLLLLL, WELL IT’S THE BIG SHOW**
Louder boos since the last time we saw him fill the arena as Show plods to the ring, a look of serious determination on his face. He stands to the left and impatiently starts pacing around, anxiously awaiting the arrival of his opponent who is making him sweat until finally….
**MY TIME IS NOW**
The ever present high pitched squeals that accompany this particular song are thunderous as once again John Cena bounces onto the stage. He salutes at the top and then sprints to the ring, bounding off the ropes once inside. Another loud squeal erupts when he takes off his shirt and cap and throws them into the eager crowd. He takes up his spot in the corner of the ring. The bell sounds and we are good to go!
John Cena vs The Big Show
Winner faces Edge for the WHC at Backlash
Match Ending: After a hard fought back and forth contest we now find John Cena trapped in a tight Camel clutch at this stage of the match. Most of the fans are fully behind him and cheering desperately as they try to will him on. Cena is trying to get to his feet. He manages to climb to his knees…………..then up to one foot……………then to another foot! Big Show’s face is in shock as he now finds himself teetering dangerously on the other man’s back. Cena lets out a fierce yell as he finally powers out of the hold and upright before instantly falling backwards knocking Show to the ground. He rolls off the other man and leaps to his feet. He gets in a few swift kicks but Show manages to get up too. Cena bounds quickly off the ropes and hits a hard shoulder block. But it only takes the big man down to one knee! He runs off the ropes and hits another HARD shoulder block, literally steamrolling through the other man and leaving him flat on his back. The noise level considerably rises as he stands at the other man’s head and holds out his hand. The male contingent starts to boo as he runs off the ropes, dusts off his shoulder and delivers the FIVE KNUCKLE SHUFFLE! Cena looks set to hit the FU. Show is slowly staggering back to his feet. Cena rushes in and is just about to lift him onto his shoulder when he is hit with a thunderous SPEAR! A mixture of boos and cheers breaks out as EDGE turns around and takes out Big Show too. He smiles and scrables to his feet holding his world title proudly in the air to the sound of the bell ringing in the background.
Lilian Garcia: Ladies and Gentlemen the referee has rules this match as a No Contest!
The former cheers have now turned to immense boos, much to the delight of the Champion who simply shrugs his shoulders and smiles wickedly.
**YOU THINK YOU KNOW ME**
Cole: What the hell is this?
King: We were supposed to find out the number one contender tonight but I think Edge has just solved his own problem. There’s NO number one contender!
Cole: This is ridiculous.
King: And there’s nobody here with the authority to do anything about it.
Cole: But Linda McMahon…..
We leave the image of Edge standing on the ramp posing with his title to see Linda McMahon walking alone down a hallway backstage.
King: Linda McMahon has other things on her mind, Michael and it looks like we are about to find out just what they are, NEXT!
There is a brief pause while the Raw logo flashes on the screen until the fabled entrance music of LINDA MCMAHON hits. The fans pop as the woman herself cautiously makes her way to ringside sans security. She gets in the ring and nods at those fans at ringside calling her name before raising the mic to her lips and starting to talk. Her voice is shaky and nervous as she does so.
Linda: Last night at Wrestlemania, I sat helplessly and watched as my family got destroyed by Randy Orton and The Legacy.
Linda: I can’t even……….I can’t even describe to you how I feel right now. Shane…..Shane is at home nursing a concussion. Vince is beaten and bruised. He hasn’t spoken a word since last night. Stephanie is still in the hospital. She hasn’t moved from her husband’s bedside.
Linda is visibly upset as she talks about the trauma her family is going through right now. She takes a deep breath and tries to continue.
Linda: Hunter is………..well, he’s in pretty bad shape right now. After that punt to the head……….he still hasn’t woken up yet. The doctor’s say that it could take weeks, months for it to happen. He may not ever wrestle again.
A seriously loud outpouring of boos fills the arena at Linda’s words. Some fans seem to be in shock at the severity of the injuries sustained by all last night.
Linda: Randy Orton, you took it upon yourself to destroy my family these past few months. I hope you’re happy. You put out my son, my husband. You attacked my daughter and quite possibly ended my son-in-law’s career. You got what you wanted.
Linda pauses here. She looks defeated and it appears like she has given up hope until a sudden determination fills her eyes. She glances up with a look of resilience of her face.
Linda: But you aren’t going to win.
The fans start to cheer as Linda seems to have found some measure of resistance.
Linda: I have every faith that Hunter will get better, that Vince and Shane will get better and when they do, you had better watch out because they’re coming for you.
The cheers gets louder but quickly turn into the absolute loudest boos of the night when a familiar entrance theme hits.
**I HEAR VOICES IN MY HEAD……**
The WWE Champion walks onto the stage to an outpouring of heat. The fans are booing the absolute hell out of him as he slowly walks to the ring and gets inside. He glares at Linda and gets right in her face. She is visibly shaken but is trying hard to hold her ground and not get scared. Orton continues to stare a hole right through her to insane heat from the crowd. He lifts the mic to his mouth and tries to speak only to get rained down by even more boos if possible. He creaks his neck to the side before turning back to Linda and finally starts to speak.
Orton: Linda……..I have to say that I’m surprised to see you here tonight. After what I did to your family last night, I thought we were finally going to get a McMahon free show……………guess not.
Randy ignores the heat and eases back a little so that he’s no longer in Mrs. McMahon’s face. He rubs at his temples and looks slightly confused.
Orton: And that begs the question, Linda, just what are you doing here tonight? If you were smart you would realize that I am a VERY dangerous man. After the pain and brutal beating that I inflicted on each and every member of your family last night, do you seriously think that I won’t do the same to you?
A surprised gasp scatters around the arena and Linda looks scared as hell as Orton gets right back up in her face, forcing her backwards until she’s against the ropes and has nowhere else to go. We can hear her pleading, “No,” but Randy just talks over her.
Orton: I beat Triple H for the WWE Championship last night. I punted him in the skull and put him on the shelf for good, Linda. He’s never coming back. I gave your son a concussion, I beat the hell out of your husband, hell, I even slapped your daughter in the face and yet you come out here tonight and tell me that I need to watch out? That I need to be ready for when they return? Let me make this clear for you, Linda, they are NE-VER coming back. Triple H is done, he’s finished. He’s going to spend the rest of his life as a damn vegetable while your pathetic daughter sits at his bedside hoping and praying that he wakes up.
The boos have reached fever pitch at this point as the Champion seems to have lost it. He has a crazy look in his eye, the same look he seems to get when he strikes out and attacks someone. Linda is crying at this stage, absolutely horrified at Orton’s words and afraid that he might make do on his threats.
Orton: I. AM. THE. W.W.E. CHAMPION.
Orton holds the title belt right up against Linda’s face. He stares at it with a maniacal gleam in his eyes before staring right back at her.
Orton: This belt belongs to me, THIS COMPANY belongs to me.
Something seems to have come over him as he really starts to get in Linda’s face, his forehead pressing against hers as he glares at her menacingly. The fans are booing like crazy and Linda herself is crying in terror as longtime company officials such as Fit Finlay, Tony Garea, Arn Anderson and a slew of referees run into the ring and try to separate the pair. They grab Orton and force him back while ushering Linda out of the ring. Orton stalks to the side of the ring where Linda is standing outside and starts yelling at her.
Orton: THE ERA OF THE MC MAHONS IS OVER, LINDA. I RUN THIS SHOW. I AM THE WWE CHAMPION. THE AGE OF ORTON……
Randy almost seems to be in a spasm as he runs his hand across his face and starts to rock on his heels all the while glaring at the remaining McMahon. He closes his eyes and takes a deep breath before his demeanor quickly changes. He becomes calm and blinks slowly before addressing her one last time even though she is well up the ramp and heading to the back at this stage.
Orton: The Age of Orton has resumed. And it’s here to stay.
Every person in the arena is on their feet and hurling abuse at the Champion’s outburst. And the boos only get louder as Orton slowly turns around. He spots Arn Anderson and Fit Finlay still standing in the ring. In an instant he drops the title and hits a swift RKO on Double AA to the displeasure of everybody. He is quickly back on his feet and moves to hit Finlay too only he reacted quick enough and got out of the ring. Orton gives one final glare up the ramp before picking up his title and raising it high into the air while the fans boo his damn ass off to end the show.
Cole: Good God, Randy Orton has lost it!
King: I can’t believe what we just saw. I have never seen anybody speak to Linda McMahon like that before, I’ve never seen her so scared. Orton is a loose cannon, he’s a God damn psycho…
Cole: And he’s our WWE Champion!
King: God help us, Michael! God help us all!
