Tonight Cena faces Harper. Will Bryan be stripped of his Championship? Tonight on RAW!
Raw opening is cut off by DEP!
Bray – He’s got the whole world in his hands. He’s got the whole wide world, in his hands. He’s got the whole world in his hand. He’s got the whole world in his hands. Brothers and sisters, sing with me! He’s got the whole world in his hands. He’s got the whole wide world, in his hands. He’s got the whole world in his hand. He’s got the whole world in his hands. Hahaha! Every night we lay our heads down to dream, our minds really start to tick. We start to remember these things, these horrible things, the travesties in our lives. But in our dreams, we’re super heroes. In our dreams, we can fix everything. We dream of revenge. We dream of Payback. Just like that, we wake up, and that’s when reality starts to set in. We look in the mirror, and we remember we are not super heroes, and we cannot fix everything. So we bottle all this rage up inside of us, and go on with our dismal little lives as if nothing is wrong, but everything! Everything! Everything is wrong! And I plan on fixing that, see. I used to have this mean old teacher. She used to look down on me and go to great measures to remind me that I was a piece of trash. I would never amount to anything in my life. She believed that everything she read about in a book was true, and that everything I believed in was a lie. So I went up to her and I said, ‘Hey teacher-lady, what is it about you that makes you think that you’re so much better than me? That you’re so much smarter than me? Is it because your mommy and daddy paid for you to go to some expensive school? So that you wave it around in front of all of us? Is it so you can force feed children all this propaganda? I say, nu-huh!’ She looked at me and she said, ‘Bray Wyatt, you are rotten. You stand for nothing. She said, Bray Wyatt, the first time I looked inside of your eyes, I knew there was something inside of you. I knew that you were evil.’ Hahahahahahahahahahaha! But I’m proud to say that somewhere, that teacher-lady is rotting inside of some retirement home, with all of her life’s regrets, but I Bray Wyatt, stand here today as a conqueror, as a revolutionary, as a man of a thousand truths, and I say, teacher-lady, look at me right now, I got the whole damn world in my hands.
Fan – He’s got the whole world in his hands. He’s got the whole wide world, in his hands. He’s got the whole world in his hand. He’s got the whole world in his hands.
Bray – That’s my Payback! My ends justify my means. But teacher-lady was right about one thing, I am evil. I am the necessary evil in this word that’s needed to balance everything out. I am evil! My tongue is the scorpion’s tail, and when it starts striking, people start getting behind me. They get behind me because I offer them hope. I offer them hope to men, to men like John Cena who want to see everything die!
Bray – John Cena, he hides behind that plastic smile, he plays the role of hero, while everything around him burns! But I promise…
Bray – At Payback, all my people, I promise, that fairytale is going to end. At Payback, I will be the last man standing, or I promise, no one will ever stand again. But tonight, tonight Luke Harper is going to put John Cena down. Tonight, Luke Harper destroys…

Heyman – Listen, I got one for ya.
Heyman lays back down on the mat in the middle of the ring.
Heyman – What am I now? Nope, I’m not your queen, finally dying and making Charles your King. I’m the Undertaker at WrestleMania! (Sits up) Except I can sit up and Taker can’t.

In Ring Segment
Bryan’s music and the fans are wild, but it’s Steph who comes out. Steph is in a black top and black leather skirt. Steph out leading “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” but getting “NO!” “NO!” “NO!” and huge heat.
Steph – Tonight you should all be chanting yes because Bryan underwent successful neck surgery this past Thursday. Bryan has a truly incredible story. At WrestleMania he won the WWE WHC, then he went on to marry Brie Bella. Part 1 of the wedding will air this Sunday on Total Divas. (“What?”) Bryan has overcome every obstacle, even his chant has inspired millions of people around the world. Entertainers, athletes, professionals, sport leagues, everyday people like you and I. Well, like you. (“What?”) And Bryan is doing all he can to get back to active competition, because Bryan is your Champion. And he knows that you need an active Champion. (“What?”) So, therefore, since I know Bryan is convalescing at home, and hanging on my every word, I’m afraid I’ve got some… Well, someone else can say it better than I can.
Video montage of Bad News Barrett announcing that he has some bad news.
Steph – (in a bad British accent) I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news. (heat) I am contemplating stripping Bryan of the WWE WHC. (heat) And awarding it…
“NO!” “NO!” “NO!”
Steph – And awarding it to the Demon, Kane. Or I could strip Bryan of the WWE WHC, and award it to Bad News Barrett. (pop) Oh, yeah, you like that because he’s from the UK. You’re so predictable. How about I award the WWE WHC to Batista! (HEAT) Seriously, if there’s anyone deserving of being Champion, it is the COO of the WWE, my husband, the Game, the King of Kings, Triple H! (heat) But in all seriousness, I am not going to strip Bryan of the WWE WHC. I’m not going to, but I am going to demand that Bryan show up on RAW next week and do the right thing, personally surrender the WWE WHC, because that’s what’s best for business.
Slater vs Rusev
The Union Jacks out to the ring, but to little reaction.
Slater – London! The Union Jacks are home! So get up, get ready, because…
Slater is cut off by Rusev’s music. Out comes Lana in a brown suit with pinstripes, white cuffs and collar.
Lana – Similar to mindless America. Attempting to interfere to something far more superior, and beyond your comprehension, will be the cause of your downfall. You cannot stop or alter the destiny of a great leader like Vladimir Putin. He succeeded in resurrecting Mother Russia as a great power house, unlike America, who has failed. In fact, America’s future will be this.
On the tron is a picture of the White House with a Russian flag flying in front of it.
Lana – England, you are no different.

Ambrose – Last week Trip talked about humbling us. Talked about teaching us a lesson. Eliminating us. Then Trip is going to run his goons down, and hide behind them. Naw. What that looks like to me is that Evolution might be afraid of The Shield. Because at Payback we want an Evolution that wants to fight. This 20 on three crap, this (pointing to Reigns’ eye), is this your brand of justice?
Reigns – Nice stitches. And the question remains from last week, is that all you got? Is that your best shot, because if it is, you have so many problems. You keep trying to knock us down, and we keep standing tall. And we;re never going to stop coming for you.
Rollins – Yeah. Evolution, that’s what you don’t understand, you don’t get it, you keep attacking us while we’re down, you keep us down, you keep trying to put us out. Example, two weeks ago in my match with Batista, I took one risk too many, and I made a mistake, and he did what he does, he took advantage, and then he beat me half to death when I could barely stand on my two feet. Tried to put me out of action. Tried to end my career, but couldn’t get the job done. Tonight, Dave, I won’t make any mistakes. Believe that Batista. And believe in The Shield.

Recap of Bray opening the show on mic.
Renee – Please welcome Cena. Earlier you were successful against Bray,do you have a game plan going into your match with Harper?
Cena – You don’t fix it, the game plan is the same as it was last week, invite the Tag Team Champs, the Usos. You know what that does? It keeps the odds fair. I’m no dummy, I can hear, the arena is full of followers of The Wyatt Family. They believe in Bray Wyatt’s message. We may have the odds in the ring, but there’s a sense of desperation tonight, just like Payback. I got a feeling I’ll be walking into an arena of Wyatt’s followers, so there’s that desperation. I love desperation, because it provides moments of opportunity to either succeed or fail! What do I do in the face of desperation? Do I run? Do I run? Do I quit? Do I give up? No, see we fear no man, we turn down no fight. We will stay, we will fight and find that opportunity, seize it, and win! They are the Tag Team Champs, this is the heart of a Champion.
Cena beats his chest with his fist, and the Usos join him. They all start humming along, shouting out power words, smiling through it all. They then get the Uso chant going. The beat their chests and hum as they leave the area.
Trip – If these guys think for a second that that’s all we’ve got, then they’re dumber than we thought they were. This is just the beginning. You see what Randy did to Roman’s eye? You see the stitches in his eye? That’s just a start, and they know it.
Orton – Can’t miss those stitches, can you?
Trip – Nah!
Orton – I think what needs to happen is that we take these guys out one by one at Payback, and maybe then they learn.
Trip – Maybe, or maybe it starts tonight. There’s already blood in the water Dave, so I say you go to the ring tonight with Rollins, and you finish it. He doesn’t make it to Payback.
Batista – And I’m going to do it all by myself.

You embarrassed me a week ago, and two weeks ago. I don’t take embarrassment easily. (“What?”) Why don’t you send your people out of the ring? (“What?”) I’ll back Jack out of the ring.

Bray back into the ring. Rowan holds Cena, Bray into the corner, then back bends. Cena fights back against Rowan, but Bray with Sister Abigail on Cena. The fans are singing The Wyatts music. Cena tossed from the ring. Harper and Rowan toy with Cena, blows and pushing him around. Rowan with a fall away slam onto the ramp.
Up on the stage Bray lands another Sister Abigail.
Bray – He’s got the whole world in his hands. He’s got the whole wide world, in his hands. He’s got the whole world in his hand. He’s got the whole world in his hands. He’s got the you and me brother in his hands. He’s got the you and me brother, in his hands. He’s got the you and me brother in his hand. He’s got the whole world in his hands.
Over the singing, Harper counts to ten.
