In Ring Segment
Bryan out to the ring in a new ‘Respect the beard shirt’ (want). “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” from the fans.
Bryan – Last week the burning question on everyone’s mind in the WWE ‘Universe’ was finally answered. Is Bryan the weak link?
“NO!” “NO!” “NO!”
Bryan – After making Orton tap out in the middle of the ring, you answered that already. “NO!”
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Bryan – That asks a new question. Can Bryan ride this wave into MITB and win that contract?
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Bryan – If there was only a simple three letter word for that.
Bryan – You had it right the first time, “YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Bryan – You see I want to be WWE Champion. I want to follow in the footsteps of the great. Bruno Sammartino (pop) Hulk Hogan (heat) Steve Austin (pop) The Rock (mixed) Bryan
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Bryan – Why not? Two years ago I won and cashed in to become WHC. It’s been far too long. Just because this MITB is filled with All Stars doesn’t mean history can’t repeat itself. I can be WWE Champion.
Sheamus (comes out) – Since we’re talking about history Danny Boy. I thought I’d come out and tell you how the story ended.
Bryan – No one wants to hear how that story ended. Nobody cares.
Sheamus – What? How I beat you at WrestleMania in 18 seconds? (heat) Look, I’m not out here to say I’ll win MITB in 18 seconds, just that it’s been too long since I’ve been Champ and I won’t let anyone get in my way.
Bryan – If I call 1-800-FELLA, will you come out here and brogue kick yourself in the head?
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Sheamus – That’s pretty funny. I didn’t know you had a sense of humor. I always thought trolls were grumpy.
Orton (comes out) – Wait a minute, wait a minute. Let me get this straight. You’re out here arguing how long it’s been since you were Champ. It’s been two years for me. I’m not hungry, I’m starving. A starving man takes what he needs. I need the WWE Title. So, after I win MITB, I won’t hesitate,like Cena, to cash it in on the next Champ I see.
Bryan – There’s something else I know. I know last week I made you tap out.
“You tapped out!” (Orton seems to be hiding his mouth, and a possible smile or laughter.)
Orton – I’m going to let that slide Dan, but disrespect me once more and I will drop you where you stand. I am desperate, it means no one is safe.
Fire erupts and out comes Kane.
Kane – I agree Randy. No one is safe. Especially you. No one in the history has been more ruthless than me, especially with the Title on the line. I have no trouble causing unspeakable against against my opponents. Even my friends.
Bryan – Why are you looking at me like that Kane? You’re unhappy about Smackdown. Unlike me, you can’t beat Orton.
Kane – I can’t wait for MITB because it’s every man for himself. No partners, no friends, only victims.
They argue back and forth that ‘I am going to be WWE Champion!’ and ‘I’m going to win MITB!’
Christian – Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a second. I hate to break up your lovers quarrel. When it comes to the Ladder Match, there’s one man who’s been in more, and had more success than anyone in WWE history, that’s me. I’ve been gone for a while, but I;m back and want one more match. That’s for the WWE Championship. I might not be the biggest, strongest, scariest, or the hairiest, but I am the best!
Punk – I made a promise to myself and not do the predictable thing, come out and do what you’re doing, but then I heard one word, best. Christian I respect the hell out of you and all you’ve done in your career.
Punk – I’m not only the best in the world, and the only man who’s won it twice, and soon to be the only who has won it three times. I don’t want you to misunderstand me. We’re all jerks, so I don’t care if you misunderstand me. I’m the best in this ring, nobody can touch me, and I know how formidable the competition is. RVD. I’d like to think you’re watching somewhere, and I know your game plan. You’re fearless and will do whatever it takes to get that case. Sheamus, one of the toughest SOBs I’ve been in the ring with. Randy…
Bryan – Enough! You going to talk about each of us, then say how you’re better than us all?
Punk – Yes.
Bryan – I don’t want to hear another word from you. One more word and I will make you tape out faster than Orton last week.
Orton – Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Orton steps toward Bryan, but Kane steps in Orton’s way.
Bryan (turns Kane around) – I don’t need anyone fighting my battles for me. I…
Orton turns Kane into an RKO! The rest start around at each other. Christian from the ring. Punk also leaves the ring. Sheamus leaves. Bryan watches Orton as he leaves. Bryan checks on his good friend on the mat, but then argues with him off mic.

Steph – That’s true.
Vickie – I mean they’re sending mixes signals, the men are sending crazy, hehehe…
Steph – Are you trying to be funny Vickie? When did we become girlfriends? I’m here for you in a business sense. Quite frankly I don’t like you making fun of my husband or father, or trying to play us one off the other. I agree that you need specific direction and need to know where you stand. You’re going to have a job evaluation, publicly, in the ring.
Vickie – I don’t know if that’s…
Steph – You could get promoted to the GM of RAW. Or you could get fired. The greatest thing about RAW, it’s unpredictable. You just never know what’s going to happen next. (Steph leaves and Vickie looks like she’s going to cry or barf.)
