Last week Brock got involved in the Tag Title Match. Because of that this week the Tag Title will be defended in a steel cage. Also, Orton will be starting RAW!
In Ring Segment
Orton to the ring. Cole says that Orton isn’t in a good mood because he has to face Cena, Bryan, Sheamus, Christian, and Cesaro in an Elimination Chamber for his WWE WHC.
Orton – It’s been a weeks since The Authority said I havbe to face at Elimination Chamber. Unfair? Understatement.
“CM Punk!” chants FILL the arena, right over Orton trying to talk. Orton is visibly rattled, speaking much faster than normal, no dramatic pauses, trying to push through, and over, their chants.
Orton – They are try trying to strip me of the Title I won through hard work and dominance. I have a question, how many times do I have to beat Cena? (heat) How man times to I have to beat Bryan? (louder heat) The same for Sheamus, Christian, and Cesaro. One, if not most of you want to see one of them beat me. Is that right? Well, that’s not going to happen. I will be victorious at Elimination Chamber, and WrestleMania when I face that jacked up, muscle bound, genetic freak Batista. (heat) Back in Evo we were equals, but a lot has changed, and I’m better than you Dave, and all in the Elimination Chamber. I’m the greatest Superstar of this generation, or any other, and the main attraction on Monday night RAW! (heat)
Trip’s music plays and out he comes in his power suit, Steph by his side in a lovely black tank dress that nips in at the waist, then flares our gently from her hips and shows off her beautiful curves, ending mid-calf, over black tights, or boots (can’t see very well).
Steph – Randy, you just need to calm down.
“CM Punk!” chants, as loud as earlier, if not louder. Steph plows right through.
Steph – You have a habit of self-destructing. You over think things, and get paranoid. You need to not bite the hand that feeds you, think about what we’ve done for you. You’re going to let this get to you. You’re better than that.
Orton – I could care less what these people think. I face impossible odds, and still have the titles.
Trip – You come out saying the same thing, how unfairly you’re being treated. Those are not words I expect from The face of the WWE. Maybe we should put our faith in someone else.
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Steph – Randy, at Elimination Chamber, you’re competing against five other. Over the next weeks, you will face each in singles competition. If the person you face tonight defeats you – and I can’t believe I’m saying this – we may have to consider as the new the face of the WWE. That Superstar is Daniel Bryan.
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!” Trip is on stage leading the chant, raising his arms, as Orton seethes in the ring!

Moving forward, never back, always clawing forward, just for that wonderful moment. The moment where you sacrifice yourself in the name of your game. There’s a tid-bit that I know, that you don’t. Your moment is closer than you think. I will build my empire next to the sea, and smile from my throne, as I watch my enemies drown. Hahaha!

The Seahawk Tweeted to Daniel Bryan.
Barrett – Could I have some decorum please? Last night’s Super Bowl was the most watched TV event in US history, but for the 11.5 million of you watching, I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news. You spent the entire game shoving junk food down your fat gullet, and clogging your arteries, so much so, that most of you won’t survive until next year’s game. Ha ha ha, ha ha. (Think Nelson from Simpsons.)
King (Standing with a foot on announce.) – Barrett, Barrett, over here! I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news for you, hopefully next week, you won’t be around!

In Ring Segment

ADR – Before you put these people to sleep talking about how your going to headline WrestleMania, or how you’re going to be Champion again, why don’t we talk about this Batista… Why don’t we talk about our unfinished business.
Batista – Look man, I don’t know what your deal is, and I don’t know how to make you understand, but I don’t have an issue with you. Me coming back has absolutely nothing to do with you.
ADR – Batista, you don’t tell me when we’re done, I tell you when we’re done. While you were sitting on your couch for the last four years waiting for your movie agent to call you, I was here. I was here winning all the major titles. Batista, being famous doesn’t make you a Champion, having cohones makes you a Champion. Then you call yourself, the Animal, to me, you’re nothing more than a little chihuahua who is afraid of Alberto Del Rio. Batista, I’m going to hurt you. I’m going to hurt you until you say, please, Mr. Del Rio, don’t hurt me. Don’t break my arm…
Batista (slightly chuckling) – I’m going to tell you again. I don’t know what your deal is, but I’m telling you, I have no…
ADR punches Batista in the face with the mic. ADR all on Batista’s face with punches. Off comes his blazer, and he keeps punching on Batista.

Rollins – Bray, you’re real good at spewing rhetoric and analogies about what you think is going on. But man, you are so delusional, you’re a figment of your own imagination. The grandest delusion is that you and your little family can hang with The Shield.
