In Ring Segment
Punk to the ring as Cole talks about Susan G. Komen and the work the WWE is doing with them. Video of Heyman taunting Punk on RAW last week, then faked his Jazzy not working, drawing Punk in. Punk tried to attack, but Axel and Ryback attacked Punk. Punk worked really well with Axel and Ryback until Ryback botched tossing Punk through the table. “CM Punk!”
Punk – There’s a lot of people who say this show thrives on unpredictability. I’m as unpredictable as it comes. It’s a bit predictable that I’d get beat up in my hometown. After Heyman beat me, of course he came out to taunt me in Chicago. It’s predictable that Heyman would taunt me with his big, fat, slovenly, slimy mouth. Of course it’s predictable that I get jumped by Axel and Ryback/ the end is predictable when I put Axel to sleep. It ends when I get my hand on Ryback and show him what I do to bullies. It ends when I get my hands on Heyman and there’s no one to save him. It’s just him and me. (To the fans who started chanting.) If you think Ryback sucks, tell the world! This Sunday it could end when I take on Ryback. Or on RAW next week. Or it could end right here on RAW!
Punk – I’ve been in a fighting mood for months. I say I don’t leave this ring until I get a fight. I don’t care if it’s Ryback, Axel or Heyman. I’m going to put Heyman out of his misery.
Maddox – Punk, hold on, take it easy!
Punk – You don’t even get music? You don’t even get an entrance song?
Maddox – Look. Listen. I certainly know what it’s like to want to fight like a man. I understand you were embarrassed and want these people to forget. You want the ultimate showdown right now, and that’s not what’s best for business. You know that you’re getting Ryback at Battleground. What are you doing right now? I am the GM of RAW, which means, that I do have the power to give you a match tonight, if you’d like one. But you’re not…
Punk – You’re going to tell me what I can and cannot do? I’m looking for an outlet for my aggression. You can either go back there…
Big E comes out to new music. Big E into the ring and takes Maddox’s mic.
Big E – You want aggression? I’m your man.
Big E attacks Punk. Shoulder blocks in a corner. Big E comes back for more, so Punk side steps and Big E shoulder first into a corner. A ref runs to the ring and Maddox motions for a match. Punk pulls off his shirt and is ready for a fight.

The Wyatt Family’s music hits right after the bell. Bray leads Rowan and Harper to the ring. Kofi stands in the ring, ready and waiting, a chair in hand.
Bray – Fall victim to the wicked games men play. For instance I spent the majority of my life trying to figure out why these horrible things happen to me. Why me? I would wake and wonder if this nightmare of mine was ever going to end. But it never did. And now, finally, I understand what I must do. One by one, they will all fall down. Follow the buzzards. Hahahahahahahaha.
Bellas talking about Battleground. Orton walks up on them.
Orton – Congratulations Brie. I heard the big news this week. You and little Daniel getting married. When’s the big day? I asked when the big day was. I’m only asking, because you need to schedule it sooner than later. If you have it after Sunday, then there’s a very good chance your little fiance won’t be able to make it down the aisle, because he won’t be able to walk.
Orton leaves and the Bellas look shaken.
Renee welcomes Heyman. Heyman walks up and stares at her.
Renee – I want your reaction to Punk’s words earlier. He seems obsessed with getting to you.
Heyman – Renee, it must be so difficult for you to watch a man with such promise descend into madness. Punk is so obsessed with getting his hands on Heyman, and it’s something he will never do again. Punk will never bully me again, because Punk’s a nobody who became a Paul Heyman Guy. A Paul Heyman Guy who was WWE Champion. A WWE Champion who forgot what made US, us, us the Best In The World.
Renee – I couldn’t help but notice that Ryback is right around the corner, and Axel is hiding behind some equipment, as if perhaps you might have another trap planned.
Heyman – A trap? Another trap? Is that what you’re insinuating? My mere existence is a trap for Punk. That I’m here is a trap for Punk. The fact that I take a breath when every breath in my life is taken with gleeful spite against Punk, is Punk’s obsession against me is a trap. I have a huge night planned for tonight, and if Punk wants to do something about it, let him become a man and try!
Los Matadores are going to be here next.
3mb vs Los Matadores
Slater and Mahal in the ring, waiting. Justin announces Fernando and Diego, Los Matadores. Ole! Out comes Fernando and Diego. They throw their hats aside, flip their capes around, then smoke spews.

In Ring Segment

Trip – I would like to invite the Rhodes family to make their way to the ring. Don’t be afraid. I guarantee your safety, just like I would any WWE Superstar.
Dusty leads Cody and Goldust out to Dusty’s music. They’re all in suits, open collars, sans ties, but Goldust is painted up. Cody is first into the ring. Dusty second up and in. Goldust brings up the rear. The fans love them.
Steph – Welcome to RAW, everyone’s obviously happy to have you here. Cody, it’s the first time I’ve seen you since you got married. I trust your father gave you the gift card to Bed, Bath & Beyond. Our wedding present.
Trip – Why the angry look on all your faces. We invite you out here out of the kindness of our heart and this is the open hostility that you give us? How many opportunities is this Steph?
Steph – I’ve lost count.
Trip – Is this like four now?
Steph – At least.
Trip – I mean we gave you the opportunity to get your job back, all you had to do was beat The face of the WWE, Randy Orton. And you failed. Out of the goodness of our hearts we gave the opportunity to Dustin, Goldust, all he had to do was beat Orton, and Dustin did what Dustin always does, he failed. (Dustin turns away from Trip in disgust.) To Dusty, we offered him the opportunity to get Cody’s job back and what does he do, Dusty makes it about Dusty, as he always does. I don’t get it. Dusty, are you still bitter about not being able to make it outside Florida and the NWA thing? Bitter at the fact that when you tried to make it on a national level with the McMahons, you failed? You couldn’t even get it done with the polka dots, Steph! We offer your son’s job back and you tell my wife to go to hell. (Right up in Cody’s face) And he got knocked out for it. Here we are, opportunity number four.
Steph – Dusty, you have the most important job in the WWE right now. You train and develop WWE Superstars in Orlando. You hold their future in the palm of your hands. Isn’t it ironic that my husband and I hold your sons’ futures in the palm of our hands? Onto the proposition. Cody, we’d like to give you your job back. Goldust, we’d like to give you a job. Or an opportunity to gain a job if you can beat the WWE TTCs this Sunday at Battleground.
Trip – That’s right, all you have to do is beat them at Battleground and you’ll get your jobs back, but, isn’t it funny how there’s always a but on these things?
Steph – There is, there’s always a but.
Trip – But, if you lose, then Cody and Dustin, you will never work in the WWE again. Not only that, but Dusty will join you in the unemployment line.
Dusty pulls the mic out of Trip’s hand!
Dusty – You’re big on getting in people’s faces. (Dusty right up in Trip’s face.)
Trip (off mic) – Don’t cross the line old man!
Dusty – Let me tell… Don’t cross the line old man? One stipulation, I’ll be in my sons’ corner, and I’ll be your Huckleberry all night long.
Steph – You’re on, but it seems you’re itching for a fight Dream. Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.
Trip and Steph leave the Rhodes men in the ring together. Cody holds the ropes for his father. “Goldust!” chants. Goldust turns around and into a really sick spear from Reigns.

Heyman – You’re looking at this entirely the wrong way. Punk thinks he’s so clever. He’s playing into our hands. He’s out of our league with us.
Ryback – Nobody needs to be distracted by the threat of Punk. After last week, if he wants us, let’s give him what he wants.
Axel – Go to the ring and call him out?
Heyman – Go get yourself something to eat and I’ll be right out.
Ryback – You got it boss.
Heyman – Isn’t he beautiful?
Axel – What do you have on your mind?
Heyman – Ever since he saved my life, I see things differently. The food tastes better. The flowers smell sweeter. I have a whole new outlook on things. I’m going to do what I should have done the night he saved my life. I’m going out to the ring and propose to Ryback.

Big Show – You know Renee, my financial situation is being held over my head like Damocles sword. People say be a man, do the right thing. Being a man is doing the right thing no matter the consequences. Do the right thing, no matter what. That real easy to say when it’s not your neck on the line. People judge the choices I make. I’m choosing between the lesser of two evils. If it was up to me I wouldn’t choose evil at all. I’m a good person. I’m just trying to do what’s right by my family. Everything I’m asked to do, I’ve done. I knocked out a HOFer, a man I idolized growing up, worshiped the day I walked into this business. I watched him get attacked by The Shield, now I can’t look Dusty in the eye. There’s only so much I think I can take. Every sick, weird thing they’ve order me to do, I’ve done without question. Renee, I can’t take it anymore. I’m not going to take it anymore. I’m going to find Trip and show him exactly how I feel. (Big Show’ eyes bugging out of his head.)
Renee – What exactly does that mean?
Big Show – I’m going to knock Trip out! (Big Show’s fist up, eyes bugging out, and he takes off away from Renee.
R-Truth – It’s the right time togive me the IC Title.
Maddox – I’ll take it under advisement.
R-Truth – Advisement?
CRASH! R-Truth bolts, Maddox looks very nervous.
Maddox – Hang on.
Big Show – Where is Triple H? Do you not understand me? (Big Show lifts Maddox up by his face and plants him against the wall. Maddox mumbles.) You don’t know? That’s not good enough. Go find him, I’m going to wait right here until he finds me, understand? (Big Show drops Maddox who flees.)

Recap of Rhodes family in the ring with Steph and Trip.
In Ring Segment
Ryback leads to the ring, Heyman in tow.
Heyman – Not only was I man enough to pin Punk, proving I’m the best in the world, but I’m also a world renowned expert of political science. Take for example that you cannot put down insurgents on their own soil. Since I own Punk, I decided to squash Punk with 18,000 of his rebel forces, on his own turf of Chicago. Punk had to be put down by me as if I was the dictator in front of his friends, and what he considers his family. I give you exhibit A – Video of Heyman’s scooter stalling, taunting Punk, but he was attacked by Axel and Ryback. Now, I’ll give Punk credit, he’s a man of commitment, but that commitment is to break my face. The only reason this face is here smiling is because of the independent actions of the man who stopped Punk’s bullying of Heyman. That man I speak of is you Ryback.
Ryback – If there’s one thing I hate in this negative world, it’s a bully. To see Punk take all that knowledge you gave him, that friendship you gave him, all the sacrifices you made for him, to see him take all of that and hurl it back in your face, I couldn’t let that stand. Paul, you’re a genius, and there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for you.
Heyman – I’m glad you feel that way. 2013 is such a progressive year in so many movements. In this progressive society it’s time people stop living in denial of their true feelings, and be open and honest about how they feel. I don’t want to be stigmatized in that Superstar/advocate way. I want something much more meaningful for us. Since you saved my life I have more of a spring in my step. I feel virile. I feel free. That is because of you, and I want to feel that way for ht erest of my life. Here, in front of everyone, I want to…
“Get a room!” chants.
Heyman – It’s amazing that here you are living in such a progressive society and here you are breaking up such an intimate moment between me and my hero Ryback. I want to let you know sir that this needs to be an official commitment. You can call it a relationship, a marriage, a partnership. All commitments are about mutual understanding. I even ran it by my children because of the huge sacrifice I am going to have to make to you. The commitment I want to make to you is from the opening match to the main event. In sickness and health, till death do us part. Ryback, I want to make an honest man out of you. (Heyman takes Ryback’s hand, gets down on one knee.) Ryback, you big bad beautiful man, will you… Ryback, will you… will you, will you become a Paul Heyman Guy?
“NO!” “NO!” “NO!”
Punk’s music hits. Ryback is ready, looking up the ramp. Heyman looks around, trying to find where Punk is coming from. Punk through the fans and over the barricade, but he crumbles holding his knee. Heyman holds Ryback back as Punk works out his knee – but no medical staff rush to Punk’s side, so it’s obviously a work. Punk to his feet, wobbles to the ring, tries to get in, but crumbles back to the floor. Finally a doctor is over to check on Punk. Heyman over to that side of the ring, looks down and asks if Punk is okay, but then Punk bounces up and spins, taking Heyman’s feet out with a kendo stick! Ryback rushes over and takes the kendo stick shot. Punk into the ring and Ryback stops the stick, so Punk kicks Ryback in the gut, then hits him with the stick. Axel in and takes the stick to the gut. Another shot to Ryback and he flees. More shots to Axel, then Punk stand Karate Kid style and hits Axel a couple more times with the kendo stick splintering into pieces. Punk hits GTS on Axel while smirking up at Heyman and Ryback on stage.
The Shield vs Ziggler & Usos
The Shield in the ring. Ziggler out to face them in a light pink version of his shirt. He waits to the Usos to comes out and join him before heading to the ring. The Usos are in pink WWE shirts.

Uso in, but Ambrose takes him down. Ambrose taken out by an Uso, and Rollins in. Rollins taken out by an Uso, then Reigns spears Ziggler for three in some of the most intricate and fastest work I’ve seen from The Shield, Ziggler and the Usos together or apart.
Winners – The Shield (9:08)
Video recap of the high points of the match. The Shield celebrates on the ramp,but Rollins is holding his head and looks to be hurting.
Big Show is pacing in Trip’s office.
Big Show is still in Trip’s office, smells the flowers, tosses them aside. Some officers in. they say Big Show has been threatening a WWE Superstar. Steph steps in and says he doesn’t know the consequences of his actions, and just trying to put food on his table. Now there’s a huge mortgage payment. She thanks the officers, but vouches for Big Show. She did speak to Big Show’s wife today. She says Big Show hasn’t been measuring up to her expectations. Steph and the officers leave the room. Big Show sits down, cries some more, and looks about to have a break down. But then his vision clears, he’s pissed. He gets up, walks over to a Trip poster on the wall, and puts his fist through it, and the wall behind it.
Renee – Your World Title Match will be Extreme Rules.
RVD – I could talk and talk about this, but I’d rather show how I excel at Extreme Rules.
YouTube video of RVD in hardcore and extreme matches.
RVD – Pretty impressive, huh? ADR is vicious, vindictive, but he has no clue what Hardcore means. Anything to survive. Throw the rule book out, use your imagination. The perfect translation for hardcore is simple. Even ADR will get it, it’s the same in any language, it’s Rob Van Dam!
Cesaro vs Santino
Zeb – I don’t see anything bad about Mississippi, it’s a bit like a 3rd world country. Lower than Alabama. Only real Americans can say “We, the people!”, if you don’t live it, don’t give it.
Zeb is in a red and white shirt that looks pinkish on TV, and Cesaro and Swagger are in pink “We, the people!” shirts. Santino power walks to the ring, Hornswoggle tries. They’re both also in pink shirts.
Santino and Cesaro grapple around a bit. Santino holds the side headlock on Cesaro, then takes Cesaro down. An upper cut drops Santino. Santino whipped and eats an upper cut. Double stomp. Santino gets slammed back and Cesaro sets up, but Santino kicks him off. Hip toss, then head drop from Santino.

Winner – Santino (2:47)
Zeb’s head in his hands, Cesaro in shock, and Santino celebrates after he figures out he won.
In Ring Segment
King – In case you missed it earlier, congratulations are in order for Brie and Bryan. Now, I’m sure we’ll get the full story in November on Total Divas. Until then, let’s bring out the man who popped the question Bryan!
Bryan out to “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” in his pink “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” shirt. King and Bryan shake hands.
King – The Superstar who will face Bryan this Sunday at Battleground this Sunday for the WWE Title, Randy Orton!
Orton out to the ring wearing his black t-shirt with the pink RKO and viper on the front.
King – This is intended to be a verbal confrontation only. We’ll wait for Sunday for the physicality. Trip, after Bryan won the WWE Title, made a controversial decision to strip Bryan of the Title.
Orton – Jerry, at the time, I was very upset with Trip’s decision to not give me the Title back. I realized that it inspired me to reach the full potential of The Apex Predator. No longer was I the watered down viper that cared what you idiots thought. I was the Viper void of morality, relentless, remorseless that decimated Miz in his hometown, while his mother begged and pleaded for me to stop. Sunday I will beat you for the Title because I’m genetically superior to a small, pathetic, weak, B+ goat faced troll like yourself.
King – Those are some pretty strong comments Daniel, your response?
Bryan – My response, Randy, he talks a great game, doesn’t he? He talks real good. A little monotone, sounds like he’s had to practice in front of the mirror a few times, but great none the less, just A+ all the way. But why do you think Trip felt the need to inspire you? To motivate you? Maybe because he thinks your marketable, wants to put you on magazines, and on DVDs. Maybe because he wants to make money off you. Or maybe because he knew you can’t reach your full potential without it. Guess what, I may be some pathetic, weak, B+, goat faced troll, but I have never, ever needed anyone elses motivation to reach my full potential!
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Bryan – This Sunday at Battleground, I achieve even more when I beat you and regain the WWE Championship! “YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Orton – “NO!” “NO!” “NO!” Just because…
Orton – Shut up!
Orton – Shut up!
Orton – Shut up!
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Orton – You think just because they chant that one syllable word of yes that you can be Champion? I know you’re on a roll as of late, I mean, you’re marrying a Bella, which beg the question, what on earth could be so incredibly wrong with Brie Bella that she would settle for the likes of you? You know Daniel, one day Brie is going to wake up and realize she’s not sleeping with a virile handsome Champion like myself, she’s sleeping with a barnyard animal.
Bryan attacks Orton at that. Blows on Orton, then sends him out over the top. Bryan out and all over Orton. Orton reverses, sending Bryan into the stairs. Bryan’s pink shirt is ripped off him and he’s into the post. Orton removes his own shirt, sends Bryan into the post again. Orton holds Bryan’s face up, pulls him into the post. Pulls him into the post again. Orton set Bryan up, lands him thighs first on the top of the barricade. More punches from Orton on Bryan. Bryan pulled from the timekeepers area, set up on the apron. Brie runs down the ramp. Orton stares her in the eyes, then hits his DDT on Bryan. Brie rushes to Bryan’s side, but Orton’s back and she has to flee. Orton strips the announce table. Brie is yelling at Orton to stop, so he taunts her. Orton pulls Bryan up by his hair and slams him face first onto the table.
