"Burn It To The Ground..."
The show opens to the impressive Raw pyro as the crowd go wild. The commentators start the show.
Micheal Cole: Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, and welcome to Monday Night Raw!
Jerry Lawler: Right off the heels of Capitol Punishment, where John Cena defended his WWE Championship against R-Truth.
*Shot of John Cena holding up the WWE Title*
Tonight's Main Event see's Alberto Del Rio take on the leader of the New Nexus, CM Punk, for the #1 contender spot.
Micheal Cole: And tonight, we find out the news regarding the most trending topic on Twitter, that's right, the Anonymous Raw General Manager will be revealed tonight.
Jerry Lawler: I wonder who it could be...
"The Truth Will Set You Free..."
Boos flood the arena as R-Truth makes his way to the ring. He looks possessed as he makes his way to the ring. He enters the ring and grabs a microphone...
R-Truth: Last night...I was robbed.
*The hatred is voiced*
R-Truth: Nah foreal, John Cena ROBBED me, just like Rey Mysterio, and just like all the little Jimmies.
R-Truth: Now they got me facing Evan Bourne in the first match.
R-Truth: I should be fighting for the #1 contender spot, not...
R-Truth: SHUT UP! Know what, I aint even wasting my time on you fools. Get that punk out here.
"Born To Win"
Evan Bourne enters to a small pop with his trademark grin. He slaps hands with the fans as he does his inverted slide into the ring...
R-Truth Vs Evan Bourne
...as he slides in the ring he is met by a kick in the gut by R-Truth. R-Truth continues the assault with a flurry of punches before whipping him into the corner. He runs to hit a closeline but Evan Bourne flips over and catches him in a sunset flip pin. R-Truth rolls out and connects with a vicious kick to Evan Bourne's jaw which makes the crowd gasp.
He turns to the crowd and yells "See what happens?" and is recieved with a loud boo.
He picks up Bourne and scoop slams him, finishing the combo with a big elbow drop. He trys for a pin but Bourne kicks out quickly.
Truth looks frustrated, and picks him up and whips him to the ropes. Bourne returns by ducking a clothesline and on the rebound lands a massive dropkick which sees R-Truth roll out of the ring holding his mouth.
Bourne looks to the crowd as he eyes up a jump outside. The crowd approve which a big cheer.
Evan graps the top rope and bounces back for leverage, and jumps over the rop, only to be caught in the arms of Truth. Truth drops him onto the steel steps, which cripples Bourne's body.
Truth rolls back in and leaves Bourne to pick up a 9 count before barley sliding back in.
Truth drags Bourne up and kicks him in the gut, seemingly looking for the Axe Kick, which is recieved badly by the fans.
As he bounces off the ropes, Bourne replys with another big dropkick, which leaves Truth laying perfectly in line with the turnbuckle.
Bourne, feeling the momentum, sees his oppertunity to land the Air Bourne Shooting Star Press. Holding his ribs, he slowly gets to the top rope.
Truth grabs the referee's t-shirt to pull himself up, distracting the referee, as JTG comes down from the ramp to grab Bourne's leg.
R-Truth leaps to hit the rope as JTG releases Bourne, and now Evan is crotched on the turnbuckle.
The referee looks disgruntled as R-Truth drags Bourne down and quickly hits the Shut Up! He pins the broken body of Bourne to get the 1, 2, 3.
Truth stands up and refuses to let the referee raise his arm. JTG slides in with a smile on his face to raise R-Truths arm. They both grin largly and the fans give them both lots of heat.
Winner = R-Truth
"I Came To Play..."
The Miz enters to many boos. He has an angry look on his face and storms to the ring. Snatches the microphone on his way into the ring.
The Miz: Really? Really?....Really? The Miz doesent have a match up tonight? The former WWE Champion doesent have a match tonight? I can't wait for this new general manager to reveal himself because he has alot of explaining to do regarding this tragedy. I am starting a formal protest, I will not leave this ring unt...
*General Manager Message Tone which is recieved by a mixed reaction*
Micheal Cole: Can I have your attention pleae? I have recieved an e-mail from the Anonymous Raw General Manager. And I quote...*The hatred flows*
"Miz, we all know the routine, you sit in the ring and stage a protest until I set you up in a match. Well why break traditions? Tonight you will face a mystery opponant. Someone you have not met yet, but I'm sure you are aware of. So, get your frog-faced self out of my ring...
...and get ready for you match. Oh, and have a nice day Miz."
The Miz, with a smug smile, leaves the ring.
Backstage, Josh Matthews is announcing an interview.
Josh Matthews: Hello and let me welcome my guest at this time; CM Punk.
Punk, you are schedualed for a #1 contenders match against Alberto Del Rio tonight, have you got any comments?
CM Punk: Joshua, as much as I would like to tear through Del Rio to take away a little of that arrogance, I have decided to step aside tonight. You see, I am a 3 time world champion, and now my main goal is leading the Nexus to greatness. So, I have decided to name Mason Ryan as my replacement.
*Mason Ryan walks into the shot to a mixed reaction from the fans*
Josh Matthews:This is huge news and...
CM Punk: Of course it's huge news! You know what, Mason has a match to prepare for, so if you wouldnt mind...
*CM Punk and Mason Ryan walk away*
Josh Matthews: And after that bombshell, tonights Main Event is the egotistical Alberto Del Rio, against the giant Mason Ryan.
"One Two Three..."
Tyler Reks emerges to a stale crowd reaction. He walks slowly with a look of indifference about him as the commentators hype him as the 'Dreadlocked Demolition Man'.
Primo walks out to an even less enthusiastic crowd reaction. He walks out with the swagger he usually possesses and symbols a title belt around his waist.
Tyler Reks Vs Primo
The bell rings as Primo charges towards Reks. Reks stands his ground as Primo knocks himself on the ground with a failed shoulder block. Tyler Reks smiles and violently stamps on Primo's head.
Rek's picks up Primo by the tights and the back of the neck and thrusts him into the corner ring post, seeing Primo tumble to the floor. Tyler follows and picks back up the hurting opponant.
Rek's grabs him by the back of the head and throws him and the railguard, before tossing him back into the ring. Tyler slides back into the ring to drag up a lifeless Primo.
Tyler Reks lifts him above his head, only to connect with a hard hitting Burning Hammer.
He lays on Primo whilst still possessing the heir of indifference.
1, 2, 3. It's all over. Tyler Reks wins after a dominating performance over the average opponant.
Winner = Tyler Reks
*Promo for Money In The Bank*
Backstage, Josh Matthews is trying to get comments from a passing R-Truth.
Josh Matthews: Truth, Truth, can we get some words on what happened out their tonight?
R-Truth: What? Aye, you wanna know what happened out there tonight? You really wanna?
Josh Matthews: Well...yea...
R-Truth: What happened out there tonight, was that I, R-Troof, was overlooked once again. Dey fought I wouldnt win, dey fought dey could get rid of me. But no one gets rid of R-Troof. GET THE HELL OUT OF MY WAY!
R-Truth storms away as Josh Matthews looks exausted at the camera.
Back to a shot of the ring as Justin Roberts stands in the middle.

"My Time is Now..."

John Cena: MAN O' MAN! D'you guys SEE Capitol Punishment?
John Cena: Up there in the Whitehouse, I'm sure Obama was on the edge of his seat as Captain Charisma, The Celtic Warrior and The Viper left if all out there.
*Another Huge Pop*
John Cena: But you guys have to give it to R-Truth, he was in it to win it, and that guy is tough.
John Cena: ...And tonight, we find out who that anonymous General Manager is. Will it be the creepy Paul Bearer, the creepier Naked Mideon, or maybe Mosh and Thrasher have dawned the skirts and head banged their way to the raw GM spot...
*Big pop with laughter*
John Cena: ...either way on this historic night, I stand here, STILL, the WWE...
Alberto Del Rio drives out to the side of the stage in a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, as Micheal Cole states how expensive it is. The crowd are giving him immense heat at interrupting John Cena. Del Rio goes to the stage, wielding his trademark scarf and aggrivating grin.
Alberto Del Rio: My Name...My name is Alberto, Del Riiiiiiooooooooh.
Alberto Del Rio: ...But you already know that. John....John, John, John, John, John. I will keep this short, because I know you have little kids to hug...
*More heat and a shot of Cena looking unimpressed.*
Alberto Del Rio: Cena, you can beat all the delusional rappers you like. You can beat all the arrogant reality TV stars you like, but you, you will not, beat me...I will defeat CM Punk, Mason Ryan, or anyone else put in front of me, and at Money In The Bank, I will leave as the WWE Champion, because it, it is my destiny...I have more talent than you, I have more heritidge than you...and I, I have more Money In The Bank than you....
*Del Rio grins as the crowd defend Cena*
John Cena: Del Rio, not only do you wear a womans scarf to the ring, and now only are you the lovechild of JBL and Chavo Guerrero, but you are more greasy than the McDonald's frialator.
*Crowd let out a MASSIVE pop*
Albero Del Rio: Haha, Cena, you a funny guy...but those jokes won't help you, when I break your arm, and leave you tossed to the side like the garbage you are.
John Cena: Alberto, how 'bout you just focus on not becomin' a victim of a Nexus orgy tonight, and then we can talk...
*Crowd cheer as the screen fades to a shot of them both sharing a lock icey stares*
*Chris Masters Promo*
We return to a shot of Santino and Kozlov warming up in the ring. Micheal Cole and Jerry Lawler hype up the identity of the anonymous General Manager.
"Well It's The Big Show...*BOOM!*"
The Big Show and Kane walk to the ring to a decent pop. They seem calmer than usual, probably due to the fact that they face allies Santino and Kozlov. In the ring they both hit hands with Santino before getting the action underway.

The bell rings with Kane and Santino in the ring.

CM Punk: This is the biggest moment of your career, are you ready?
Mason Ryan: Of course I'm ready, I'm going to beat Alberto out there tonight, and at Money In The Bank, I'm going to end Cena's career.
CM Punk: Well, you had better, because Nexus arent losers, so if you lose, you WILL pay for it.
CM Punk leaves as an angry and confused Mason Ryan looks on.
*Promo of the Anonymous General Managers best bits. Involving Edge and Stone Cold both attacking the booth and seeing Micheal Cole's catchphrases*
We return to shots of the crowd. The commentators reveal that it is time to find out who the anonymous general manager is. They say that he has been GM for almost a year and that he has already shaken up WWE on multiple times. Anticipation is heavily building, and the energy of suspence is electric. The shot goes to the top of the building, showing the titantron and all of the crowd.
"Skidding and Car Crash..."

He raises on hand in his farmiliar manner and makes his way to the ring. He brings the mic to his mouth, but the "Foley" cheers make him stop to compose himself for a second.

Mick Foley: So I've been the General Manager for around a year now, and I'm sure you've all seen some of the...finer moments.
