In Ring Segment
Steph and Trip in the ring in their power suits.
Steph – Welcome to Monday Night RAW!
Trip – Sunday marks the Road to WrestleMania! 30 men will step into this ring with an opportunity of a lifetime. One man will walk out with a guaranteed shot at the WWE WHC and main event WrestleMania. It’s my distinct honor to welcome back one of those 30. He’s been a friend and foe, in many ways we’ve evolved together. Welcome back a former member of Evo…
Orton’s music hits and he stomps to the ring.
Orton – I’m going to get right to it. (heat) Who in the hell do you two think you are?
Steph – Who in the hell do you think you are? As Hunter said, this Sunday is Royal Rumble, and ten days ago we announced the launch of the WWE Network. Never before have there been so many eyes on the WWE. What did all those eyes see on RAW after you lost your match to Kofi? What did you do? Let’s take a look at the footage.
Video of Kofi pinning Orton, then Orton tweaked out and attacked Cena Sr. ringside. Cena out to his father’s rescue, made sure he got the medical help he needed. Cena was taken out in an ambulance with Cena by his side.
Steph – After you lost your match to Kofi, you attacked a helpless old man whose back was turned while he was sitting at ringside. You viciously brutalized him, and unbecoming of the WWE WHC! That might have flown in the past, but it’s a new era, new regime, new Authority. If you cannot abide by that authority then you won’t have to worry about defending your WWE WHC anymore. In fact, you won’t have to worry about being part of the WWE roster.
Orton – Naw, naw, no! No! No! No! This is because of you, and you! You ever think that I wouldn’t have this aggression if you hadn’t put me in an unnecessary, ridiculous rematch with Cena? What does your husband do to reward me? He brings back The Beast Brock Lesnar. Nice, then he brings back Batista. Batista of all people. Only God knows what his true ambitions are. You have a problem about how my ambitions looked. Steph, there wouldn’t be a network without me! (Batista! Chant) Tell me Steph, tell me Hunter, how am I supposed to react to the blatant disrespect. Don’t answer that, if I can go back, I wouldn’t change a thing!
Trip – Let me just tell you what is going to change around here. You’re going to take the bass out of your voice real fast. You want to know why you’re the WWE WHC right now? You want to know why we made you the face of the WWE right now? Because we believe in you. Through all your faults, you’re the complete package. You have the goods to walk through it in a way becoming of a WWE Champion. We have that faith, but you’ve lost that faith in yourself, and that’s let you make unreasonable, unrational decisions. (sic) To do things you wouldn’t normally do, like lost to Kofi. There’s no shame in losing to Kofi, but I’d expect you to rise up and make it right, but that’s not what you do. You walk over there and punch a defenseless old man in the face to try to hide your shortcomings. Sure, Cena is standing in your way, but you can walk through him. And sure, Brock Lesnar is standing there, breathing down your neck to take your Championship, and Batista is behind him. And if I was a betting man, I’d bet Batista would be looking your way. What you need to do Randy is to rise up, to be a man! You can fix what is broken, and you need to do it in short order, Randy! You need tonight to fix a lot of things, and I’m going to give you that opportunity. Because tonight you’re going to face Kofi again. You’re going to get the opportunity to make it right, Randy. When that’s done – put it up on the tron! That should look reasonably familiar to you. There’s one way into this arena, and where Cena will come in tonight. There’s a camera there so you know, as the world knows, when Cena arrives, and you can step into this ring, or wherever you want to do it, and make it right. Randy, you will do all these things – alone.
Batista’s music hits and out comes The Animal! He’s in jeans, a white long sleeved shirt with red stripes down the sleeves, and white sneakers with red soles to round out the look – but don’t forget the aviators. Music, pyro, and everything before heading to the ring. Batista poses on the corners as Orton paces the ring, holding both belts lose on his shoulders. Batista unzips his shirt to show off his chest, Abs and belly button tattoo to all who have missed seeing them. Batista to the fourth corner and more posing for the fans. Orton glares up at Batista on the corner. “Batista!” chants fill the arena when his music ends. Batista onto his knees, and kisses the mat in a lovely moment. Hugs and kisses to Steph, hugs to Trip. Steph and Trip leave the ring, and Batista with a mic, but Orton stays and watches Batista.
Orton continues to look at Batista through the chants, then steps up and puts out a hand. Heat from the fans.
Batista – Hello Randy. I understand you have a few questions about me return. Let me make this as simple as possibly, and let me explain to you why I’m back. (Batista points at the belts Orton holds.) So whether it’s you, Cena or someone else, I don’t care. I’m back to win the Royal Rumble Match on Sunday. I’m back to be WWE WHC. I’m back to headline WrestleMania, so deal with it.
Batista leaves Orton standing in the ring. Batista up the ramp slapping hands of little kids as he goes.

In Ring Segment
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!” Bryan leads the chants on a corner. “Daniel Bryan!” chants. Bryan gets that giddy smile.
Bryan – And some people say I shouldn’t be the face of this company. After RAW many people came up to me and asked if I had a plan joining The Wyatt Family.
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Bryan – I think you already figured it out. To take down a man with a messiah complex, it’s not enough to take him down physically, you have to take him down mentally. To do that, I had to do some things I’m not proud of. I had to keep some friends in the dark, and endure the indoctrination into the family. I had to stand side by side with three men I absolutely despise to wait for that one moment. That moment came last week in a steel cage when I got Bray Wyatt one on one! I know they’re big fans of saying ‘follow the buzzards’ but Daniel Bryan doesn’t follow anybody! Last week I became the buzzard and I chewed on the carcass of Bray Wyatt. You know Bray, you like to talk about fate, but the truth is, I exposed you. This Sunday at the Royal Rumble, I’m going to do the same thing. I just found out that Harper and Rowan will be in the Royal Rumble Match. That leaves Bray Wyatt to go one on one with me. “YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
The Wyatt Family’s music. The lights go out, except a little light on Bryan, and a shadowy figure of Bray on the tron.
Bray – A man who is not willing to die for something, is not fit to live. Where I come from being a traitor is a sin of the highest order man. You didn’t expose me Bryan, you only exposed yourself. For only a coward would use his free wings to fly back into the cage where he came from. These people! These people! These animals, oh how they rewarded you. They cheered for you as you battered me Bryan. Traitor. Hahaha. These sheep only look up to you Bryan, because they chose to kneel. Hahaha. What I want you to do now, I want you to go home and hug your mother, tell her you love her, tell her you’re sorry. Everything that happens to you from here on is your fault. Hahaha!
“Daniel Bryan!” chants.
Fandango and Summer Rae in the ring. Woods is ringside and R-Truth on announce.
Fandango on Woods with blows. Woods back with head scissors. Blows on Fandango’s head, the last dropping him. Woods with a drop kick that barely made it as far as Fandango, but Fandango dropped and sold it. Fandango with a big suplex on Woods, then Fandango with his left leg drop for three.
Winner – Fandango (1:07)
#EMMAtaining is dancing in the audience with her sign. Fandango and Summer Rae back up the ramp as R-Truth and Woods watch them.
Maddox – I’m glad I thought of that!
Kane – Thought of what?
Maddox – Batista, it has to be the biggest return we’ve ever had on RAW, glad I thought of it.
Kane – Brad, both of us know that’s not true. The caliber of Batista…
A door slams and Steph is there. She asks Maddox to leave, so he does.
Steph – Kane, what were you thinking when you chokeslamed Punk? It’s bad enough Orton attacked Cena Sr., but you put you hands on Punk and chokeslamed him. We both knew that this was a risk, okay? We knew that you making this change was a risk, but you need to get a hold of yourself. You’re management now, and it’s leadership by example.
Kane – Steph, with all due respect.
Steph – Kane! You cannot put your hands on a WWE Superstar, even if they think we have a hidden agenda against him.
Kane – I understand. Completely. Right. I’m sorry.
Steph – I appreciate that, but I think in this case you need to do something bigger than apologize to me. You need to go apologize to Punk.
Kane – What? If anything Punk owes me an apology… (Kane trails off because of the stern look Steph gives him.) (off mic) Okay. (Kane leaves.)
Another lovely Martin Luther King Jr. tribute video.
In Ring Segment
Kane’s music is playing, and he heads to the ring. He looks quite conflicted. Video recap of Punk not accepting Kane’s words on Smackdown. Kane then said for the New Age Outlaws and The Shield to get Punk, but then Kane attacked Punk with a chokeslam.
Kane – CM Punk, I know you can hear me back there, so please come out here.
“CM Punk!” chants.
Punk’s music hits, and out he comes in his ring gear, and Punk t-shirt. He looks at his watch, not kneeling, says, “It’s apology time!” Lots of cheering for Punk as he gets into the ring. Punk is holding the mic as a weapon, to be safe.
Kane – As DOO, I overstepped my bounds and let my emotions get the best of me. It was wrong of me to take my anger out on you, and I did save you from being attacked by five other Superstars. Punk, I apologize for chokeslaming you on Smackdown.
Punk – I don’t know if your mic is working, I didn’t hear a thing you said. You want to use mine? What did you say? (smirk)
Kane – I said, I apologize! (“What?”)
“One more time!” chants grow to fill the arena, and Kane looks pained

Punk goes right after Kane with a punch, then forearms to his face. A running knee and Kane foes out through the ropes. Kane is yelling and screaming at Punk, off comes his blazer, but then a voice can be heard yelling.
