Re: RatedRKO31 Presents WWE Evolution
Raw opens up with a video package from last week, where it shows the match-up between Chris Jericho and Mr. Kennedy. It shows them going back and forth until Jericho gets the upper-hand and locks in the Walls of Jericho. Kennedy is tapping and Jericho is still applying pressure. The camera zooms in on Kennedy holding his back and Jericho looking on with an evil smile on his face. After the video package the cameras fade to Jericho who is standing in the middle of the ring, with a suit on, and with two stool chairs. He looks at the crowd who is heavily booing him. He puts the microphone to his mouth as he begins to speak.
Jericho: Last week, in front of the WWE Universe, I once again took down Mr. Kennedy in a match. For the second straight week, I won against him and I made sure that this week he would not come out here again and challenge me. With that being said, I think Theodore Long should consider…. no actually put me in the WWE Championship match at Hell in a Cell. I don’t need to go through the tournament process; I have already proven in my career that I am a prestigious champion. So with that being said my guest for tonight’s Highlight Reel is Theodore Long!!!!
The crowd waits patiently as Jericho stands in the middle of the ring waiting.
John Cena’s music crowd cheers.
Cole: King that isn’t Theodore Long at all that’s John Cena.
Lawler: Yes it is and Jericho does not look happy as Cena is making his way down to the ring.
Cena gets into the ring, as Jericho looks in disgust. Cena looks at Jericho and smiles at him, as he puts the microphone to his mouth.
Cena: Not the man you expected to see huh Jericho.
Jericho: Cena you have no business coming out here, this is my show, you’re just a spectator. Right now I demand you to march yourself back up that ramp there is some serious business that me and Raw general manager Theodore Long need to take care of.
Cena: Chris let’s face it. T-Long is not coming out here to grant you, your demand. If he honestly wanted you to be in the title picture you would have been in the tournament. Besides, you want a match at Hell in a Cell, I want a match at Hell in a Cell so let’s make a match at Hell in a Cell. It will be Y2J Chris Jericho vs John Cena!!!!
Crowd pops but Jericho doesn’t look too pleased.
Jericho: Hell of an offer Cena, but no thanks. Now exit this ring before I make you exit this ring.
Cena: Please Chris no force is necessary, but seeing as you’re not accepting by challenge that makes me come to the realization that you’re a chicken. Chris are you really afraid to fight me?
Jericho looks at Cena who has a huge grin on his face. Jericho pauses for a second than smiles.
Jericho: You’re on!!!!!!
Jericho and Cena drop their microphones as the two have a stare down. Finally Jericho attempts a right hook, but Cena ducks it and lifts Jericho on his shoulders and connects with the Attitude Adjustment. Cena’s music hits as the crowd is excited and Jericho is on the floor holding his back.
Cole: Cena just drove Jericho down hard onto the canvas.
Lawler: Someone shut Jericho up, but the most important thing is these two will verse each other at Hell in a Cell. What a match.
Cole: You got that right King!
Cena does “You Can’t See Me” to Jericho as he exits the ring, and Jericho is still on the ground as Raw goes to commercial.
Cole: Welcome back everyone from the sold out Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado just moments ago we saw John Cena call out Jericho and the two will face off this Sunday at Hell in a Cell.
Lawler: Speaking of Hell in a Cell we like to thank Red for the official theme song of Hell in a Cell called “Wasting Time”.

For the past two weeks, you’ve been trying to get Christian on your side, to reform the glory days, you two had back in the 90’s meanwhile, he has already denied your offer of getting together again as a team. Last week you forfeited, for what? Did he even thank you?
