Re: RatedRKO31 Presents WWE Evolution
Raw begins with a replay of the Hell in a Cell from last night. It shows the carnage from last nightís main event. It shows specific highlights of both Randy Orton and CM Punk, performing their offense. Then its goes to the end when Punk knocks out the ref after his springboard elbow. The clip shows CM Punk hitting the GTS, and pinning Orton. The crowd echoes with three counts. Punk turns and seeís the ref is still down. Punk checks on the ref, and turns around RKO!!!! The clip plays the RKO a few times. Then Orton goes for the pin and gets the three count. The clip zooms on Orton holding the title.
The camera turn to the titantron and ramp where the opening pyro goes off. Fans explode afterwards, as the camera zooms in on some specific fans, and the camera then turns to ringside where Michael Cole and Jerry ďThe KingĒ Lawler are ringside, calling all the action.
Cole: Off the heels of Hell in a Cell Iím Michael Cole along with my broadcast partner
Jerry ďThe KingĒ Lawler, tonightís raw is going to be explosive.
Lawler: It sure is tonight we have a great match already announced a six man over the top rope battle royal for the number one contendership for Zigglerís IC title.
Cole: Yeah, should be an excellent match alsoÖ.
Randy Ortonís music crowd boos.
Cole: And here is the man who went through hell last night, but in the end walked out WWE Champion.
Lawler: He did, but also look who is with him, Dibiase and Rhodes who also won last night.
Cole: By cheating, donít forget to add that.
Orton climbs into the ring, and goes to each turnbuckle and holds up his WWE Championship. Cody Rhodes hands him a microphone. Orton looks at his newly acquired WWE Title that is draped over his right shoulder. He looks up at the crowd, and his stone cold stare turns into a devilish smile. He slowly lifts the microphone up to his mouth as he begins to speak.
Orton: The Age of Orton is here!!!!!
The crowd lets out a bunch of boos as Orton has a smile on his face.
Orton: All of you people, hate to admit that the better man won. I didnít need Cody and Ted to help me win. It was all on my own, and meanwhile all you people still seem to hate me. Last night I put my body on the line, however I brought hell to my opponent. [Looks down at his fingers] I still have his blood on my hands, after the multiple times, I served up a punch right into the gash, which I opened during that match on his forehead. I made him regret standing up to me. He got in my way and I made sure that he would never, ever plan to get back into the ring against myself. [Crowd boos] I look in this ring, and see that not only myself but my protťgťs Cody and Ted have gold around their waist too. It is clearly destiny, that we are all champions. We are an empire of second and third generation superstars and whether you people like it or not, we are going to dominate the WWE, for a longÖÖ.long time. NowÖ.
CM Punkís music crowd cheers
Cole: And before the champion can finish CM Punk cuts him off. I canít believe Punk is here.
Lawler: Yeah, we heard reports that he wasnít coming, but here is he is tonight standing atop the ramp.
Punk has a look of confusion on his face. Punk had a huge bandage atop his head, from where the gash was. Punk looks at the ring, where Orton and the rest of Legacy look at Punk, waiting for a reason why Punk would interrupt.
Punk: Randy I know I lost a lot of blood last night but I have to say Iím still feeling a bit light headed. Did I just hear you correctly? The Age of Orton is here? Randy sure you didnít get help from Ted or Cody, but you did find a way to cheat. After all you did push the referee in front of you and I connected with a clothesline on the ref. Then you tried to take advantage and you attempted an RKO, but I was three steps ahead of you as I put you to sleep. I pinned you for the three count. The crowd counted it I counted it and even you counted it Randy, however the ref was still knocked out. Right now I should be holding that belts around your shoulder . So Randy what Iím asking for is a rematch at Bragging Rights without you cheating me out of the title, like the last two times you have.
The crowd pops as Orton stares at Punk and begins to become frustrated.
Orton: A rematch? Are you crazy? You lost plain and simple. There is no way that you are getting aÖÖ.
Jeff Hardyís music crowd cheers
Cole: And whatís this? Jeff Hardy has some input.
Lawler: I want to hear what Jeff has to say.
Hardy: Not to steal both of your thunder, but Punk you had your chance twice, and considering you lost both of those times its time to step aside. Now Randy you want a challenge, I say you against me at Bragging Rights for the title.
The crowd pops as Punk seems a bit angry that Hardy told him off. Randy holds the microphone to his mouth as he begins to speak.
Orton: Jeff, if Iím correct you lost to Punk, so in no way do you deserve to fight someone like me who is ten times better then that loser who is standing next to you atop the ramp.
Before anyone else can re-act Raw GM Theodore Long comes out and prepares to make a huge announcement.
Long: Okay everyone, letís all calm down. Punk you will get you opportunity at Bragging Rights to verse Randy Orton for the WWE Championship, and so will you Hardy but there is a catch. In the main event it will be Jeff Hardy vs John Cena the winner moves on to verse Randy Orton and CM Punk at Bragging Rights for the WWE Championship.
Punk and Hardy both have smiles on their faces, as Orton begins to pace back and forth in the ring, angry at the announcement. Orton puts the microphone up to his mouth but before he can talk, T-Long cuts him off.
Long: Oh yeah Randy tonight, you have a non-title match tonight playa so I would prepare myself. Good luck gentlemen.
Cole: Wow what an announcement from our general manager Theodore Long.
Lawler: Orton does not look happy at all, as Legacy tries to cool him down.
Cole: More non-stop action will be after this.
Paul Burchillís music crowd boos.
Lillian: Introducing first weighting at 247 pounds from Chelsea, England Paul Burchill.

John Morrisonís music crowd cheers.
Lillian: His opponent weighting in at 223 pounds from Los Angeles California John Morrison.

Lawler: Yeah he did and it was a very competitive match from both men but in the end Morrison got the win.
Match 1: Paul Burchill vs John Morrison
Both men gave it their all. Burchill dominated early in the match, but around the five minute mark, Morrison took control after countering a back suplex countered into a swinging neckbreaker. Morrison then connects with a standing moonsault into a pin 1,2, kickout. Morrison delivers a kick to the gut of Burchill and attempts the Moonlight Drive, but Burchill counters and pushes Morrison toward the corner. Morrison springboards off the corner with a crossbody into a pin 1,2, kickout. Morrison delivers another kick and this time he connects with the Moonlight Drive. He goes for the pin and gets the three count.
Cole: And Morrison keeps on rolling.
Lawler: Yeah he keeps rolling and Burchill keeps losing.
Cole: Good point King. Right now things are not clicking for Paul Burchill.
The cameras go backstage where Edge is seen sitting down on a sofa. He has a look of disappointment on his face. His disappointment turns into anger as he begins to speak.
Edge: Iím not proud of losing last night, and I want another shot at Christian, and donít give me any garbage. I want that match and I want it tonight.
The camera pans over and it is Raw GM Theodore Long. He looks at Edge and shakes his head.
Long: Listen here playa, you donít give me commands, I give you the commands. Besides I gave Christian the night off, and you too tonight have the night off.
Before Edge can argue with Long, someone taps T-Long on the shoulder. Long turns and it is Chris Jericho who seems to be in a rather foul mood. The crowd lets out huge boos for Jericho.
Jericho: So I arrive at the arena tonight, and I find out that you have Cena in the main event, and if he wins he gets a shot at the WWE Championship, something I have wanted for the past month. Long, whatís wrong with you? Youíre catering to all the hypocrites and not giving opportunities to real superstars like myself. Itís an absolute shame. I want in that match tonight.
Edge: Hey Chris you mind Iím in an important discussion with Long here. I was actually here first so step along.
Long: Both of you shut-up. First no Jericho you donít get to be in that match tonight, however if John Cena loses you get to verse him next week to redeem yourself, and Edge so do you as you verse Christian. Wait, I have a better idea. Next week if Cena loses this week, it will be Christian and John Cena verses Edge and Chris Jericho.
The crowd goes crazy with that announcement, as the two arrogant superstars are speechless but at the same time pleased.
Long: Oh one more thing [takes out a quarter from his pocket.] Edge heads or tails?
Long flips the coin and catches it.
Long: Itís tails. [Turns to Jericho] Good news youíre going against Randy Orton tonight, now if you donít mind playas I have to leave, I got an important meeting to go to.
The crowd pops at the announcement of the huge match that will take place later tonight.Theodore Long walks out of the room, and Edge pats Jericho on the shoulder and laughs.
Edge: Well good luck!
Edge gives him thumbs-up before leaving and the camera fades as Jericho seems to be not to pleased.
The camera goes to the backstage area where Paul Burchill is seen in street clothes talking on his cell phone.
Burchill: Listen, Vince is always looking for new guys, and you clearly have a lot of talent. Plus I need you. Iíve been in a slump as of late. You and I combined no one can stop us. We can defiantly beat all these American punks in this company and become World Tag Team Champions easy.
Burchill pauses as the person on the other side of the phone is talking. As Burchill is listening the Motor City Machine Guns come in, looking at Burchill and smiling. They start to whisper to each other, as Burchill looks at them angry, however he continues to talk over his cell phone.
Burchill: Alright mate, sounds good. Iíll see you next Monday.
Burchill hang up the phone and the Motor City Machine Gunz begins to poke fun at Burchill.
Sabin: Was that your boyfriend?
Shelly: Must be because he needs him so much, oh he gets to see him next week.
They both laugh at Burchill. Burchill looks at both of them and smiles.
Burchill: Oh you guys should be comedians considering you suck at wrestling.
Shelly and Sabin stop laughing. Sabin gets closer to Burchill.
Sabin: You want to start something Paul?
Burchill: Me no, but my friend needs some practice, so how about this. My friend will debut next week in a handicap match between you two losers. What do you say?
Shelly and Sabin both look at each other and smile.
Shelly: Sounds terrific, tell your friend his debut, will be an embarrassment just like you.
The Motor City Machine Gunz laugh and slap each other high five as they leave the scene.
Burchill looks at them and smiles.The camera cuts to ringside where we see six competitors in the ring.
