Cole talks up the TLC Match and how The Authority guarantees one man will walk out as Champion. Contract signing tonight.
(Just to let you know, I'm working on a slightly sprained wrist tonight. I will try not to cut anything short, but I might be a bit briefer with certain segments tonight to save some pain. Thanks for understanding, it wouldn't be RAW without writing it for me.)
In Ring Segment
Punk out in black pants, black and white sneakers, black hoodie over a white shirt, and his hair looking wind-blown. Video of Bryan being abducted, then Punk being speared by Reigns, then triple bombed by The Shield in the ring. Punk watching the tron. "CM Punk!"
Punk – For one week I have been trying to decide why The Shield attacked me. I just figured out I'm in denial. Deep down in the best guts in the business. Last week I made the cardinal sin of criticizing Trip on RAW. I think I said he lacked creativity, it was no big deal. Later in the show I was attacked by The Shield. Who am I to question King of Kings. Has to be a cooincidence. I don't want anything to do with that's behind that door, I like living in my own universe. Ytrp isn't that dense to kick a living hornets nest, to pick a fight with the biggest anti-authority figure in WWE history. If I'm right Trip and his group are the sorry, ignorant, stupid, douche bags (db was bleeped out), that I have ever come across in my entire life.
Steph's music and out she comes in her black power suit.
Steph – First of all Punk, I hope you and everyone here had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
Punk – You don't care about my Thanksgiving.
Steph – Oh, I do, I hope you had a good one. I know we did. Speaking of my family, you know there couldn't be bigger advocates of free speech, than my family. My husband was a founding father of DX. (pop) If you would think we'd have The Shield attack you because you called my husband a bad name. What are we, in kindergarten? Punk, it's beneath us. We matured, but I have to stop projecting our values onto you. Because, clearly, you haven't. I can understand you not wanting to antagonize The Shield right now, but it's easier to point your finger at us right now. Punk, you should know, we were just as upset about you being attacked.
Punk – You expect me to believe that?
Steph – It's the truth. Now, listen, not withstanding your ego, The Authority has more to deal with tonight, like the unprecedented contract signing of the WWE and WHC match. I'm tough, but fair, we're willing to hear you out. You can ask our Director of Operations, Kane.
Kane comes out in a dark, possibly black, suit with a lilac shirt and slightly darker mauve tie.
Kane – As DOO it's my job to handle day to day issues, identify problem areas, and serve as crisis management to ensure WWE is run smoothly. The findings into our investigation into your accusations support Steph's claim. The Authority had nothing to do with The Shield's attack, and is absolved from any wrongdoing, therefore the issue is resolved. Now, do you have any questions? (Punk was hiding his face behind his hand to keep from grinning at Kane's soft spoken, precise, and sing-songy voice.)
Punk – Do I have any questions, yeah, exactly when did become 'the big red ass kisser'?
Kane – I would advise you not to take this lightly.
Punk – I would advise you not to patronize me.
Kane – Punk, we are not the enemy. This is not a path I'd recommend you go down.
Punk - Okay, you would not recommend I go down this path, so why don't we go down this path?since it's obvious you hug up your mask and put on a cheap suit, and you sold out, why don't you walk down this ring and since you've already sold out, you can also get knocked out. Or, you have your choice, you can get knocked out, or I can make you go to sleep.
Kane takes a step toward the ring, but Steph stops him with a hand on his chest. Kane breathes through it.
"YES!" "YES!" "YES!"
The Shield's music and here they come. Steph acts shocked as King comments on her fake surprise. Punk leaves the ring and throws a chair in before returning and waiting. The Shield circles the ring.
Steph – Alright, stop right there. Stop! The Shield, stop! I will not have a repeat of last week. Punk is to be respected and admired. (Steph leaves the stage.)
Kane – Respected, admired, and challenged, which is why at TLC, Punk will be in a Handicap Match against all three members of The Shield. (Kane's music plays and Kane looks proud of himself, if still a bit twitchy.)

Barrett – Ladies and gentlemen, I have some good news, and I have some bad news. The good news is, we are live on RAW. The bad news is, we are stuck in an arena full of hillbillies, and overweight miscreants who name their city after their state so they could remember it. Here is Oke-yuck-yuck-yuck City, thank you.
His new logo, the #BadNewsBarrett in a box is stamped on the screen in red.
Orton looks down on Maddox. He's glad Maddox is bad. Sorry he wasn't sympathetic of his injuries. He needs to demand The Authority recognizes him as the greatest Champ of this generation, or any other. Maddox is to tell them, Orton is The face of the WWE. And his name is more respected and well known than Cena. He's bigger than the WWE itself. Maddox is to tell them!
Time for the WWE App Poll! Will the new Champ be called -
The Unified Champion

I saw you busy chasing your little girlyfriend around on TV, buying her diamonds. Let me ask you friend, how long are you willing to live this life? How long until they discover that your dirty little feet are soiling their red carpets?

August 2007 – Orton punted John Cena Sr.
Renee – Please welcome John Cena. You have a historic match at TLC. If you become the Undisputed Unified Champion, what would that mean to you?
Cena – Undisputed Unified Champion, think about that. Think of the tradition of the WHC, the meaning and importance of the WWE Championship. Which stands taller? That debates been going on for over half a century. Years ago if you lived in the south, you'd walk that aisle, and woooooo, know that the WHC meant everything. If you lived in the north, you knew exactly what you were goin' to do, brother when pythons ran wild, and the WWE Championship meant the most. People still argues to this day, which Championship stands taller? I think it's time for change. I have been a WWE Champion. I'm proud to be a WHC, but there's only one WWE, and one big, loud, crazy WWE 'Universe' that goes north, south, east, west, around the world, and back again! I think they deserve one Champ, and to be that Champion, you ask what it would mean to me? Everything.
Ambrose – CM Punk, one on one, nah, you can't beat me.
Rollins – He wouldn't even last five minutes in the ring with that Muay Thai, nonesense!
Reigns – You come anywhere near me, I'm going to beat your little ass.
Ambrose – Three on one handicap match at TLC against all three of us? Believe in The Shield.

King – It's time to find out what the 'Universe' wants the Champ to be called after TLC.
The Unified Champion 38%
The Undisputed WWE Champion 31%
The Undisputed World Champion 31%
TLC Main Event Contract Signing
Trip's music, and he comes out hand in hand with Steph. Sorry, I screwed up earlier, Steph has a navy shirt on under her black suit, so she's not in all black. The stage, ramp and ring are all decorated with tables, ladders and chairs.
Trip – In two weeks at TLC, we have scheduled one of the most monumental matches in WWE history. The first time ever the WWE Championship and the WHC will be hanging above this ring. Randy Orton and John Cena will compete in a TLC Match, the winner will walk out not just as a Champion, but THE Champion.
Steph – Allow me to reenforce that last point, because there will be one winner. One Undisputed Unified Champion, we can guarantee it. Without further ado, let's introduce the participants in this historic match. First, the current WWE Champion, The Viper, Randy Orton!
Orton out, looking at all the paraphernalia set up. Orton poses on a corner as Steph basks in his glory, and Trip claps for him.
Steph – And his opponent, the WHC, John Cena!
Cena out to the stage, looks around, "This is serious business..." Mixed reaction for Cena, as usual
Trip – Gentlemen, thank you for coming out here. Let's get down to business, if you want to sit, stand, whatever you want to do. Randy Orton...
Steph – A man who's apparently bigger than the WWE, got your message, thanks Randy.
Trip – Be that as it may, Randy Orton, the WWE Champion. A Championship with a rich history, held by all the greats – from Buddy Rogers to Bruno Sammartino, to Bob Backlund, to Hulk Hogan, to SCSA, and The Rock. (pop)
Steph – To Triple H!
Trip – That's right, all the greats have held the WWE Championship. And John Cena. The WHC. (Cena poses, and gets mixed reaction to it) A Championship with an even longer lineage. Going back to Gotch and Lou Thesz, Pat O'Connor, to Harley Race, to Ric Flair, to Dusty Rhodes, to Taker, to HBK...
Steph – To The Game, Triple H!
Trip – A Championship held, once again, by all the greats. Now we come to a time in history, don't we guys. This is not a match we chose to do lightly, something we did at the spur of the moment. This was not John Cena's suggestion, something we have been contemplating for a long time, but before we could commit to this, we had to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that both men, both champions could carry on when it was all said and done as The face of the WWE. We have reached that time with two great champions, you both have earned your place in history, but now, with the whole world watching, you have a moment in time to cement your legacy forever.
Orton stands up and puts his belt down. Cena is still standing there, selling the moment.
Trip – Gentlemen, you've had an opportunity to review this contract, if you don't mind making it official.
Orton signs first. Trip hands it to Cena who quickly signs it.
Steph – Now that the formalities are out of the way, gentlemen, you both have an opportunity to speak about this historic, once in a lifetime match-up. Randy, the floor is yours.
Orton – Well Hunter, you're right, some of the absolute biggest names in this industry have held these Titles. No matter how great these former champions are, and you're not going to want to hear this, but I'm better than all of them, including you. But, but that's why you chose me to be The face of the WWE. You and I have something in common, that's the majority of all of you. We don't like Cena much, do we? (Cena smiles to the solid pop from this) You know I'm the only one capable, to take him down, shut him up, put him out of his misery, that's what I'm going to do in two weeks at TLC, I'm going to beat you, and I'm going to walk out with both titles in my hand.
Cena – You're talking like we've never even met before, we've had lots of matches. Let me introduce myself, John Cena, WHC.
Orton – I know who you are! (to the fans) Shut up! (pop) Come on John, come on John, we have history, remember? I kicked your father in the head a couple years ago. Since then I've been making a hell of a career for myself destroying, destroying the hopes and dreams of others, turning them into nightmares, exactly what I'm going to do to you at TLC. There's a reason they call me The Apex Predator, despite all your achievements, the only reason you were put on God's green earth was to lose the biggest match of your...
Cena – Would you just shut up? (big pop) These people are tired, and you sound ridiculous, (in a high squeaky voice) I turn dreams into nightmares. (back to his own voice) Where'd you get that one, a fortune cookie? The only dream you've ever turned into a nightmare was Trip's, because ten years ago he chose you, to teach you how to be a success in the WWE, and what did you do about it? You never lived up to your potential! Ever! No, no, no! I don't fault him because he saw what we all saw, you are the most gifted WWE Superstar ever. You make every single thing in this ring look easy, but with that you got cocky, and you got a bad attitude to boot, and then you got lazy. (solid cheers & Orton looks pissed) You were the youngest WWE Champion ever! This man gave you HOF mentors to learn from, then what did you do? Kick back, relax, and let some scrappy kid in a t-shirt and a ball cap ruin his dream! I am not you Randy Orton, I am John Cena. I have never asked to be called the face of anything, I'm just the first show up and the last to leave, and that's the way it is Jack! (huge pop) But you sit over there steaming mad, thinking you should be given opportunity because of your family legacy, or thinking you should be given opportunity because of your talent. Why don't you think in one hand and crap in the other and see which one fills up first? (cheers) Let's cut to the chase, you were given that, I earned this! We got a historic match at TLC, and if you get anything from me, you will earn it! I am not an apex predator, I'm just John Cena, but right now you're pushing John Cena's buttons. So I'm going to give you two options at this point – you can leave, or you can make a move.
Trip motions for Steph to get out of the way, and she slowly slides aside.
Cena – I want you to listen to me real close. (Cena takes off his hat and flings it to the crowd without taking his eyes off Orton) Because if you so much as make one single move to me, right here, right now, this audience will be reminded of what a TLC match really is.
Orton looks around, then flips over his big leather office chair.
Cena – If you so much as make a move right now, I will bend a steel chair over your back. You will get real close and personal with a ladder, and with all the people with the world watching, by God I'm going to put you through a table! So, Randall, you gonna step up? Or you gonna step aside?
Orton flips the table at Cena. Cena side steps and dives at Orton. The fight outside and Cena grabs a ladder and drives it into Orton. Orton comes back with head butts on Cena. Cena into the post and Orton strips announce. Cena lands a ladder against Orton's head. Cena with a chair, heads for Orton who is staggering.

Cena grabs Orton, drags him to the stairs and bounces Orton's head off it. Cena rolls Orton into the ring, hands a shirt to the little boy who Cena handed the shirt to on his way to the ring. He dropped it ringside, so Cena gave it back.
Cena into the ring and Orton send the ladder into Cena. Flat of the chair on Cena's back, twice. The top of the ladder to Cena's gut as he's laid out on the mat. Out goes a leather desk chair. Orton throws more from the ring, sets up the table. Super Cena up and sends Orton into the table set up against the corner from earlier.

Steph and Trip are up on the stage watching. Cena raises them again, and the fans go wild. Cena then waves his hands in front of his face at Orton.
