In Ring Segment
Edge comes out onto the stage to a HUGE pop at home! No opening pyro, it's all for Edge! Edge loves how Justin announces the Rater R Superstar! Edge points to Justin with a smile.
Edge – Man, every time I come out here, you remind me why this is home. It has been far too long since I've been able to say this, but welcome to The Cutting Edge. I'm here because I was requested by the COO (heat) of the WWE Triple H, to come out because it would be good for business. Thought it would be good to come out and have a reunion, but not with my best friend Christian. You guys wouldn't want to see Edge and Christian. But with my partner in Rater RKO, Orton. I've known Randy a long time and he has nothing interesting to say. Like watching paint dry. I have no problem with him cashing in, I wrote the blueprint on cashing in MITB! My problem with Randy is he's a hand picked puppet. Trip's lacky. He needs The Shield to fight his battles. So Orton isn't going to be the guest on The Cutting Edge.
"YES!" "YES!" "YES!"
Edge – Another guest who's going to be good for business. If you agree, say "YES!"
Edge – That guest is Daniel Bryan!
Bryan's music and he comes out to HUGE "YES!" "YES!" "YES!" They shake hands. Video of Trip making Big Show knock out Bryan last week on RAW. "Daniel Bryan!" chants. Bryan is all smiles, looks about to split!
Edge – Daniel, you've been through a lot, I appreciate you coming out here.
Bryan – I have been through a lot, but it helps when so many people chant your name.
"YES!" "YES!" "YES!"
Bryan – Yeah, last week Trip said if I didn't give up my Title shot, I was going to get hurt, and I have been. Like last week when Orton attacked me from behind. They don't understand the satisfaction in the struggle. No matter how many times I'm attacked, and no matter how many times Trip tries to hold me down, I will beat Orton! I will regain the Title. I will be the WWE Champion! "YES!"
"YES!" "YES!" "YES!"
Edge – That's why I like you, and they love you. You look at an obstacle as an inspiration. You wrestled in armories and barns, like I did. I see me in you. We didn't do something else, then come here. This is what we always wanted. What we wanted to do since we were kids! I see you and the people have chosen you as their guy. I don't know if you can beat Orton, but you deserve the chance. Here's the thing, can you beat Orton?
"YES!" "YES!" "YES!"
Bryan – "YES!"
Edge – Do you think you can beat Orton?
Bryan – "YES!"
Edge – Do you think you can shove it in the man's face and become WWE Champion?
Bryan – "YES!"
Edge – Can you show that you're the face of the WWE?
Orton's music hits. Orton comes out to the stage.
Orton – What a shame it is Edge, that when you decide to come back, the only place that gives a crap is Canada. What a shame Edge it is indeed that your body failed you at such a young age.
Edge – It's a shame that you're supposed to be The face of the WWE, but you act like a completely different body part. It's a shame that the Ortons have these physical problems – your daddy ran around with that cast for years. I may have problems with my spine, but at least I have one. Randy, you've become Trip's puppet. He has a great mind for the business, but when picking talent, he flat out sucks. This is the guy who doesn't think Bryan...
Trip's music cuts Edge off. Out comes Trip in his power suit, yellow striped tie this week.
Trip – I thought I'd give you the opportunity to say this to my face.
Edge – The good thing is that I'm not an employee here, I don't have to bow down to you. I'll tell you what I think about you, you don't know a thing about picking talent. You didn't think I could make it. (heat) You didn't think Jericho could make it. (more heat) You were running around yelling that this Vanilla Ice wannabe Cena, that he couldn't make it. Now, you say Bryan can't make it. I know your nose is huge, but sometimes you have to look past it.
Trip – It's great to see you, because it's best for business. I was able to secure a large sum to promote Haven, airs on SyFy after Smackdown. Now that the promotional consideration is over, please allow me to retort. You question my ability to judge talent. I have gotten some wrong, I've gotten a lot right. I'll give you that Jericho proved me wrong. I certainly was wrong about Cena. Bryan, time will tell. There's one guy I was right about. I was right when I said he'd be a failure, that's you Edge. We can pretend all we want since we're in Canada, that you're a legend in this business, but the little experiment that was the Rated R Superstars was an abject failure. I hate to break it to you, but you never drew a dime. When I say those things, all a person has to do it prove me wrong. Jericho and Cena did, now Bryan can prove me wrong, tonight. Bryan will face Ambrose tonight. Since Ambrose will have The Shield in his corner, Bryan will have someone in his corner. Don't get excited, Edge's ability to fight like a man has long passed. (heat) I'm going to give Bryan Big Show. You know, here's the thing. It would be so much easier if people would learn to get along with me. I'm not a bad guy. Contrary to popular belief, I'm not a dictator, okay?
Edge – Hunter, I didn't have to marry into success, I earned this HOF ring. Here's the thing, you're not a dictator Hunter, you're just a dick!
Trip – It's easy to cross the line when you have a withered up stack of dimes for a neck, with multiple surgeries when you know no one can come down and touch you, but the thing is, if I can't hurt you, maybe I could hurt the ones you love.
Christian is dragged out by The Shield and tossed down on the ramp. His shirt is all ripped up. Edge rushes to him and yells for 'some damn help!'
"One more match!" chants from the hometown fans.
Steph and Trip talking. Edge stomps in, but The Shield jump in front of Steph and Trip.
Edge – I wish I was cleared, because I'd come for you.
Trip – Doctors won't clear you because your stack of dimes neck won't be cleared. You'd better take that base out of your voice, who do you think you are to walk into this building on my show! You run your mouth in my town. Toronto is my town today. You run your mouth? Get out! Get out of our town, our building, my show. I can have you escorted out (The Shield).
Edge turns and leaves.

Big Show – I want to.
Booker T – We've known each other a long time, and I respect you. Even though we haven't always seen eye to eye, I was there when you first started. Cody got fired for speaking his mind. People are all over you for being a sellout.
Big Show – I'm not a sellout.
Booker T – It's easy for them to say that when they're not walking in your shoes. You are a professional. If it was me, I'd have did the same thing. Tonight, when you're in Bryan's corner, the people will want you to be a hero, but you need to think about one thing! Think about your daughter. Think about your family if you were gone. Tonight you will experience feelings. You might think it's rage, but it's pride. Don't let your pride make a mistake you can't take back.

Heyman – Ladies and gentlemen, I am not an advocate for socialized medicine. I don't believe in the Canadaian healthcare system. When I travel to Canada, I bring along my personal physician, Micheal Kurshenbaum from New York City. Let's cut to the point, Doctor had confirmed my fear that I tore my meniscus or ACL. A proper MRI in the USA will confirm this. I'm withdrawing competition this Sunday. Believe me, if you've never believed me before, no one is as upset as Heyman. I looked forward to teaming with Axel and putting out of my misery my prodigal son, CM Punk! But I'm an injured man as the doctor will attest to. I will leave you now, return to New York, receive treatment, and as Edge once said, I will return, when I can. Thank you, and goodnight.
Maddox – Paul, as the GM of RAW, I'd like to remind you that we have a fully licensed medical staff, and all are able to give you a full evaluation of your injury. If you're truly injured, the only way to be officially removed from a match is to be evaluated by our WWE doctor. Can we get a chair in the ring? Let's get a chair.

Heyman (to the dcotor) – Is this personal? (to Maddox) You don't want to make an enemy of me. I can't even stand on my two legs and you're putting me in competition?
