In Ring Segment
The Shield in the ring, Ambrose seething.
Ambrose – Last week you saw something you don't see very often, and you're not likely to see again very often in the future. You saw all three members of The Shield laid out on our backs. (smile) We got the crap kicked out of us. But it's cool. It's alright. We might go down, but we get back up. If you're keeping score at home, you'll know that we're up much more than we're down. It's all in this ring, and make no mistake about it. Let me make myself perfectly clear, we want Evolution!
Rollins – Let me make one thing perfectly clear. We are not running from Evolution, we are running to Evolution! And if they've got any guts, if they're half the men they think they are, they'll accept our challenge for a rematch, and we will run through Evolution! When they show up here tonight, we're going to hunt them down. They're good. You know what, Evolution's good, let's not take that away from them. They're former Champions. They main event WrestleMania. We get it, you're real good. You were really good. Because you're not the Evolution you once were, because you can't evolve into what it takes to beat The Shield.
Reigns is pacing back and forth behind the other two, looking really out of sorts.
Rollins – You alright big man. I see you pacing back there, you got something to say?
At first Reigns shakes his head, then nods, the whole time his body is tense and he's shaking. Rollins hands over the mic. The fans cheer louder for him.
Reigns – A week ago, you victimized my brothers. A week ago you ambushed me, you bloodied me, you RKOd me, you pedigreed me, you triple power bombed me. And all of that made me realize, is that all you got? Because if it is, you've got a serious problem. You have a serious problem, and our brand of justice, we can serve it cold. We can serve it, so slow. We're going to teach you to believe in the concept of payback. We're going to teach you to believe in The Shield. Me personally, I'm going to teach you to believe in me!
The three of them talk to each other off mic. The turn to see a limo pulling in on the tron. The limo stops and the door open and Trip gets out. The Shield look at each other and the three of them run out of the ring. The Shield runs from the ring.

They're pulled off and Trip is left on the ground holding his head. Orton is off to the side with someone checking on him.

Swagger vs RVD
Zeb is talking about his deportation list as RAW comes back on. He tells the fans to sit there and shut up.
Zeb – Last week, I wasn't vetting the most important document in US history since the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence, my deportation list, then I was rudely interrupted by my newest addition to this list, Adam Rose. An English sipping Englishman. With his band of hippies and left over Rocky Horror Picture Show rejects. I'm no expert, but to me a man who hangs around with a full grown bunny, has very questionable morals to be answered to, and offers nothing to our society. Adam Rose, this is your warning, keep your distance. I want every real American to please rise, put your hand over your heart and say, "We, the people!"

A cheap hit from Fox, and she's all on Paige. A running kick, then stomping Paige. The ref checks on Paige, but Fox is right back on her with knees. The bell hasn't even rung yet. Fox screeches at the ref to ask Paige if she's ready, over and over.

Recap of Steph dealing with Brie and Bryan last week, then Kane stalking and attacking them. Bryan will address the WWE 'Universe', next.
In Ring Segment
Bryan to the ring, leading "YES!" "YES!" "YES!" the whole way.
Bryan – Thank you. Thank everybody here and watching at home, because it's been a long road to get right here. From the moment I won the WWE Title at SummerSlam from Cena, for that 30 seconds before Orton cashed in his MITB contract, I knew this whole thing would be an uphill battle, and it has been, but the hill's been a little steeper than I thought it would be.
"NO!" "NO!" "NO!" morphed into "YES!" "YES!" "YES!" and Bryan is glowing.
Bryan – So, that's what it feels like to be John Cena. (heat) Everybody from Orton, The Shield, Big Show, Batista, The Authority, through everybody, somehow, someway, largely because of everybody here and at home, we beat the odds, and I walked out WrestleMania as the WWE WHC. But, unfortunately, when you're the WWE WHC, it puts a huge target on your back, and as soon as I got back from my honeymoon, I got the worst beating of my life. Kane came out and he tombstoned me on the floor, on the stairs and on announce, and because of that, I was in a brace, but I was determined to beat Kane. At Extreme Rules I did it. But that comes with a price. My entire style comes with a price. I think that a lot of the reason you cheer for me, and chant for me is because I'm here and paid that price with my body. Unfortunately I also have to pay the price this week with neck surgery. This Thursday I have to go get neck surgery. This has been my dream since I was a little kid. What's frustrating is that there's people who are real happy about it, Steph, Trip, Kane. They seem to be thrilled by the prospect, and they think my career is pretty much done.
"NO!" "NO!" "NO!"
Bryan – There's a chance that it could be. But, it won't be! When will I come back? I have no idea. But you know the answer to this question, will I come back?
"YES!" "YES!" "YES!"
Bryan – "YES!" "YES!" "YES!" "YES!" "YES!"

In Ring Segment
Evolution out, Trip in his suit, sans tie, but Orton and Batista in ring gear with their new Evo shirts. Video recap of The Shield on mic to start the show, then attacking Evo backstage.
Orton – Alright, listen, Hunter, I don't know if you've had enough, Dave, I know you've had enough, and I've had enough, it's time to take the gloves off. It's time to start treating The Shield like we need to treat, we need to kick their ass. Hunter, I know they were your boys back, but I believe with all my heart and soul that it's time to put the hounds of justice to sleep.
Batista (off mic) – I've had enough! I've had enough! They're calling us out!
Trip – Alright, maybe it is time. Maybe it's time to take the gloves off. Maybe it's time to finish this thing with The Shield. At Extreme Rules they proved how good they are. I already knew that, that's why I brought them here Randy. It's why I built them, fed the roster to them, to make them something, and I did. They got too big for themselves, and I thought I could salvage something out of that, and maybe I was wrong. Maybe I was wrong. I was disappointed with them. That little attempt at an ambush, it was the last straw. They have no idea who they're dealing with. They're undisciplined, like a bunch of little kids with a stick, waving it around at what's in front of them. So it's going to end. The Shield, you want a rematch at Payback? You want a rematch for a match you've already won? So be it, but this one will be different because the gloves will be off and we will do what we do, take you apart one by one. We will start, let's start with Ambrose. The guy who said, 'Do we look humbled to you?' Not yet, but you will. They we will go onto the architect, Rollins, and I'm going to pull that little humming bird's wings off, myself. When we're done with him, we're going to move on to the big dog, Roman Reigns. (pop) You want us to believe in you, do you Roman? When we get to you, we're going to take our time with you. We are going to make an example out of Roman Reigns. The example we make out of Roman Reigns, is that Roman Reigns is the member of The Shield that does not come back from Payback. Roman Reigns, you will fail to adapt, and at Payback, you will heburppt!
Rollins takes Trip down from behind in possibly the best sound ever coming from Trip! Orton tries to help, but Reigns and Ambrose slide in and attack! All the members of Evo are tossed from the ring, or flee. Trip tries to return, but knocked off the apron. Evo on the bottom of the ramp seething, but Trip is stomping up the ramp. Trip grabs a mic and starts heading down the ramp, but Batista rips the mic out of Trip's hand.

Steph – Daniel Bryan came out here earlier and told his story. That ever since SummerSlam he's overcome the odds, overcame adversity, climbed those steep hills, became the WWE WHC at WrestleMania, and then defeated the demon Kane. Yes, yes he did do all those things. At the end of the day Bryan now has to undergo neck surgery at the end of this week, and all that proves is one thing. I don't want to be right on this, but Bryan simply is not an A+ player. It's what I've been trying to tell him all along, and unfortunately, he just couldn't keep up, in spite of what his heart wants, and his heart wants to do it for you people. His heart is in it, he has the heart of a Champion, but unfortunately, he just can't pull through for you. Daniel knows that I've been trying to protect him, but he wouldn't listen. At the end of the day, my family and I have to do what's best for business. For Daniel, since we don't know what the outcome of the surgery will be. Come down to this ring because I have something to say to you, face to face.

Bray – Your actions don't surprise me anymore John, they're so human. All humans are flawed. It is their ignorance and their greed, and their lust for power that prevents them from thriving in this paradise like they're supposed to. They've become parasites, infecting everything. Hahaha. You're just like them John, you're all the same! You're boundless narcissism keeps leading you right to me, John! Where will this fairy tale of ours end? Will the hero return with the head of the beast so he can hang it on his mantle, brag to all his friends about how brave he was? Or is this the time, John, that the beast was waiting for you? Hahaha! Last week you said that you would never give up! That meant that you be the last man standing. I like that, I like that because at Payback I'd like to put your little theory to the test. Because where mountains crumble, I will stand. Where oceans boil, I will stand. When everything burns down around you John, there I will be standing. You have to ask yourself John, where will you stand? How far are you willing to go to take this devil down? Hahaha! He's got the whole world, in his hands. He's going the whole world in his hands. Burn!
