Florida; Miami – American Airlines Arena
The Shield's music hits and they make their way down to the ring through the crowd they all grab microphones from ringside.
TONIGHT ON RAW: In the last RAW towards Extreme Rules who will build momentum heading towards the huge Pay-Per-View?!
: So guys, we are in Florida tonight, unfortunately. Anyway, this isn't about you, this is about Team Rhodes Scholars and Rey Mysterio. The three people that think they have a chance in hell at defeating either of us. Me and Rollins here are going to decimate Team Rhodes Scholars on Sunday night and I'll do whatever it takes to make sure that they never challenge for this title ever again.
: That's right and when we do defeat Team Rhodes Scholars you can get back under that rock you crawled out of. Just admit that nobody has a chance in hell of taking us out. We're here to stay and if you don't like that then you might as well leave this arena right now because nothing is changing.
: On Sunday I will be going up against a man that got lucky in a Battle Royal. Despicable, but no worries, it won't take long for me to take him apart piece by piece until there is nothing left of him but an empty shell of a man, BELIEVE IN THE SHIELD.
: It's funny that some of you still do not believe in The Shield, what more is there for us prove? We've taken out all of your heroes. Just accept the fact that The Shield is WWE.
Suddenly Team Rhodes Scholars and Rey Mysterio start running down to the ring but The Shield see it coming and flee the arena. Team Rhodes Scholars and Mysterio watch Shield as a hawk as they leave the arena through the crowd.
We cut a backstage segment with Josh Matthews and Dolph Ziggler.
: Please welcome my guest at this time, Dolph Ziggler. So, Ziggler you have a match against Daniel Bryan on Sunday at Extreme Rules, how are you going to prepare for that tonight?
: Well, I'm facing John Morison tonight Josh and I'm going to make sure that I get the job done. I want to send a message to Bryan tonight and let him know that The Showoff is finally bringing the title back home. If you will excuse me, I've got a match to prepare for.
: Thanks for your time.

Back from Commercial Break CM Punk makes his way to the ring with a microphone in hand and Heyman by his side.
: This Sunday at Extreme Rules I will have to go against four other men to be able to retain this Championship. By the way, it's good to have you back Paul.
[B]HEYMAN[B]: Thankyou. Ladies and Gentleman, my name is PAUL HEYMAN and I will be accompanying my client CM Punk to the ring Sunday night and I will be watching over the match at Commentary. The 'BEST IN THE WORLD' will retain his championship and continue to cement himself as the Greatest WWE Champion of ALL TIME.
: I've defeated all of your heroes and I've shown why I'm the WWE Champion. You all wish you were as good as me, I'm the only reason you showed up tonight and guess what, I don't have a match. So, I guess that's a waste of money for you as you won't be seeing the Best in the World in action tonight. I thin--
Before he can continue to speak, John Cena makes his entrance to the ring with a Microphone in hand.
: Hold on, Punk. I've not come out here to fight tonight. I'm above that, I've just come out here to discuss our match at Extreme Rules on Sunday.
: What's too discuss? You know what's going to happen on Sunday whether you want to believe it or not.
: I think you're forgetting what the match is Punk. It's a Championship Scramble match and you're against four other former World Champions. If you think you're just going to walk in on Sunday and retain your Championship with a breeze then you're wrong. I'm going to give everything I have Sunday to make sure that I win that match.
: There's one important thing you mentioned there and that is the fact you're all 'FORMER' World Champions. You are not the 'CURRENT' World Champion. That's me and Daniel Bryan. But your ego probably can't handle me saying that John, your ego can't stand the fact that you will never be the WWE Champion or World Heavyweight Championship ever again. You're a failure John, last week on RAW you lost to Randy Orton, I told you that you win against Henry two weeks ago on RAW was a fluke, but you didn't listen to me. You continued to live in that bubble of yours believing your the greatest. That's the difference between you and me John, you THINK you are the greatest and I KNOW I am the greatest.
Before Cena can speak, Orton makes his entrance to the ring with a Microphone in hand.
: For a matter of fact, you're both wrong. My name, is Randy Orton and I will walk out of Extreme Rules on Sunday with the WWE Championship around my waist once again. That's where it belongs, with me, not you and not you, me. It's been a long time coming for me, finally getting a shot at the WWE Championship. I had to make a message which is why I took Triple H out with an RKO. I don't regret it and as you may have noticed, he's not shown up for a few weeks now. He's scared of what I could do if he shows his face around here. I'm not the type to forgive and forget if I see Triple H anywhere near this ring again he will be getting another RKO from me.
Before Punk or Cena can respond, Alberto Del Rio makes his entrance, all three men in the ring shake their heads. Del Rio makes his way to the ring with a microphone in hand. But, before Del Rio can ever speak he's interrupted by the entrance of Sheamus. Sheamus makes his way down to the ring. All men look at eachother in the ring. Punk and Orton look at eachother and for a moment are on the same page and they start to attack the other three men (Sheamus, Cena and Del Rio). Cena ends up knocking Punk out of the ring, whilst Sheamus knocks Orton out of the ring. All three men celebrate to the crowd and they all shake hands.
: This is going to be a huge match!
: You've got that right John, I've got no idea who will walk out the Champion on Sunday. What about you Regal?
: I've got a feeling that Cena may finally do this and reclaim that Championship once again.
