Pre-Raw Commercial

WWE week on USA! Raw Is Jericho tonight!

Raw Starts

In Ring Segment

Jericho's music and he's out in very faded black/gray jeans, a maroon deep V, a black vest, a deep red leather jacket, and a black scarf with white and red skulls. On his way to the ring, with his huge grin, Jericho hugs a boy with Down Syndrome before getting in the ring.

Video of Jericho's Slammy win last week, and the dive that won it for him.

"Y2J!"

Jericho – Welcome to Raw Is Jericho! I can't think of a better place than Detroit Rock City! I can feel the energy tonight. It's perfect because Y2J is the Special Guest GM on Raw. Tonight I'm going to make this show about you, every Jericholic here and at home! As you can see, because of all of you, I won a Slammy for Extreme Moment of the Year for jumping off a cage. I thank you for voting for me!

"Y2J!"

Jericho – I could stand here all night listening to that, but I'd get in trouble. I couldn't make it to Raw last week, but Fandango accepted for me. (heat) That's what I thought! I was sitting there, and I thought, I'll be damned if I'll let some tangoing troll, some waltzing weirdo, some herdy-gerdy horse's ass accept my award for a Slammy! (pop) So, that's why I demand, as the GM of Raw, that Fandumbo, Fan-asshole (he got bleeped for that), Fandumbat, Fandingo, Fan-Dodge-Durango, Fan-Wango-Tango, Fan-I-see-a-little-silhouette-o-of-a-man-scotta-moosh-scotta-moosh-can-we-do-the-Fandango! Fandango! I demand that the man come out and give Y2J my Slammy. Get out here Fandunghole!

Jericho waits, but then it's Heyman!

Heyman – Ladies and gentlemen, my name (monster heat). Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and truth be told, confession on the table, I'm a Jerichoholic! Which is why I'm so used, when they say truth to power, I'm the power that people speak with, however, tonight Paul Heyman's not in power, because tonight, Raw Is Jericho! If I may? I kind of find that ironic, because one would think if you're going to have a Special Guest GM on Raw, wouldn't you want the man with the best tack record of running exciting promotions in that job? No disrespect Mr. Jericho, wouldn't you put Paul Heyman in charge of Raw? Now, I know that you just accepted the offer, and it was a high dollar offer, and you're in demand, but I do have a beef with you, sir. For you to win the Extreme Moment of the Year, I'm sure you campaigned on Social Media for it, and I'm all about self-promotion myself, but come on Mr. Jericho, if anyone should accept a Slammy for anything about the word extreme.

Heyman smiles and throws his arms wide. The fans start the obligatory and well deserved "ECW!" chants.

Heyman – I admit Mr. Jericho, I'm not the (shaking his jowls while putting on a strange voice) Ayatollah of Rock & Rolla. How do you do that without getting dizzy?

Jericho – You'll give yourself and aneurism.

Heyman – But I, Sir, am the father of the extreme concept. I am the Grand Pu-bah of the hardcores! I am...

Jericho – You are the walrus!

"Walrus!" chants.

Jericho – You are the walrus, goo-goo-gachube. And you're right, you did give me my first big break in ECW, but in doing so, you also ripped me off. You owe me $200. Yeah, you've owed me $200 since 1995. You had the Jericho, Best of tape, showed it every week on TV, you owe me $200. Give it to me. Come on, I want $200.

Jericho starts poking Heyman all over, not actually reaching into pockets, but touching Heyman all over, even his head.

Heyman – Don't touch me! Get your hands off me. It's not funny. I'm not a fighter, I'm an advocate. I'm not out here tonight to advocate on behalf of my client, the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE WHC, Brock Lesnar. I'm here for more selfish reasons Mr. Jericho. I'm out here to advocate my own position, because I, Sir, on this show, want to address this whole issue with Seth Rollins. Seth Rollins who had a chance to become a true Paul Heyman Guy by taking Cena out of the Title equation at the Royal Rumble. Seth Rollins who could have knocked John Cena out of the #1 contendership. Seth Rollins who failed in his past last night. I cannot wait to say this...

Out comes Rollins with J&J Security in tow.

Rollins – What's that Paul, did I hear you say that you couldn't wait to see Seth Rollins later tonight, huh?

Rollins into the ring, letting the fans get their, "You sold out!" chants going.

Rollins – Did you have something you wanted to say to me Paul, face to face?

Heyman – You're crowding me sir.

Rollins pushes Heyman back.

Rollins – Am I crowding you Mr. Heyman, is that what's going on?

Heyman – I'm not a fighter. I'm not even a sports entertainer, I'm an advocate. So, in the interest of being reasonable, I'm going to take a step back.

Rollins – Alright Paul. Let me ask you this. Last night at TLC, you were right there. You watched the whole thing. You saw me put Cena through a table. You saw a WWE official raise my hand in victory. And, once again you saw that victory get taken from me. Just like at Survivor Series, I had the match won for Team Authority. The Authority would still be in power if not for one man. The vigilante himself, Sting. And just like that, last night at TLC I had Cena where I wanted him, then there's Roman Reigns. You know, as well as I know, as well as all these people know, that John Cena cannot beat me on his own. John Cena needs help to beat Seth Rollins, because I am that good. (J&J Security clap) John Cena...I've had enough of John Cena. He wants to come out and talk about hustle, loyalty, respect, how he is a stand up guy. You know what John Cena really is? John Cena is a coward. He can't beat me without help and knows that. If John Cena was half the man he thinks he is, then he'll accept the challenge I'm about to lay down. I want to challenge John Cena to a rematch. But not tonight. (heat) Hear me out. I went through hell last night in that Tables Match, when I'm good and ready, I want to face John Cena one on one...

Cena's music and out he comes to a bitching Rollins.

Cena – You shut your mouth kid. Go play in the corner with the other kids. The grown men are in the ring right now. (pop) I wanna make something real clear. Just because you walk out here and put a mic in your hand doesn't mean that you have testicles in your pants. Here's what happened last night. We had a match, and you lost.

Between Cena and Rollins is a sign a couple rows back. It's perfectly between them, and bits of the sides are cut off, but it very clearly reads, "Cena, turn heel, you-douch!"

Cena – You gave a hell of a fight, but you lost! Yet you're out here whining, complaining, and making excuses, which means you still haven't learn what it's like to be a man! Because a man doesn't whine and complain and make excuses for defeat. A man simply picks himself up, dusts himself off, and continues to fight. (turns to Heyman) Even if that fight is with a Beast. (to Rollins, and almost finding a southern accent through the rest of this bit) After I beat you last night at TLC, it was made official, at Royal Rumble I'll face the Beast for the WWE WHC, and that is gonna be one fight. I still showed up looking for a fight tonight. I couldn't help through all your crap you say something about a rematch, which was actually one of the really nice things you said, because I was felling the same way. You said that I can't beat you with help, you're right. I can't make matches. If we're going to do this tonight, we need somebody with power to make that happen. Where am I going to find somebody who's in charge of Raw. Hell guys, it's Chris Jericho, Y2J. Welcome back to Raw!

Jericho – Well thank you John, it just so happens I have the power to make matches on Raw. You want Cena vs Rollins rematch, you've got it! But, I know you went through hell, you're beat up, but everyone knows I always have an agenda. How about we make this match in a Steel Cage?

Cena (leaving the ring) – See you later on tonight Seth.

Rollins – This is what you...You gotta be kidding me! Who do you think you are? You think you run the place? You're the worst GM of all time. You're worse than that stupid computer. You're worse than Daniel Bryan. You know what it is? You're jealous! Chris Jericho is jealous of me! I get it, I understand. You are nothing compared to me. You're so rusty, you don't know what it takes. I went through hell in that Tables Match last night! You know what? You're jealous of me. You want to do it yourself, but can't. You couldn't even beat the janitor, Chris. You're out of shape, you couldn't beat the popcorn salesman. You couldn't even beat Paul Heyman!

Another sign jumped out at me, "Eat, Sleep, Disappear, Repeat!"

Rollins – This is ridiculous!

Heyman is in the corner laughing away at it all.

Jericho – Hold on a second. Hang on. Calm down man, calm down. You're right, the popcorn guy's a ninja, but I think I can beat Paul Heyman.

Heyman is getting it.

Rollins – Now, I'm pretty positive Chris, I don't think you could beat Paul Heyman.

Jericho – No, now, I think I could beat Paul Heyman.

Rollins – Paul Heyman's an advocate. He's not a fighter.

Jericho – You came out and made a point and gave me an idea. I think I could beat Heyman. Am I the only one who thinks I could beat Heyman? (pop)

Heyman – Hold it here. For the record, I think you can beat Paul Heyman, change the subject.

Jericho – This is kind of fun, right? Raw Is Jericho, we will have fun tonight. Tonight, two big main events! Rollins vs Cena in a cage! And Y2J vs Paul Heyman here tonight! On top of that, I want you to go to the WWE App and choose what type of match we will have tonight! When we're done Heyman will never, ever be the same, again!

Jericho from the ring. Rollins and Heyman in the ring arguing off mic. Jericho is all smiles.

Highlight Reel

Jericho – Detroit Rock City, having a good time? Good! Welcome to the Highlight Reel! Last time I did Highlight Reel I predicted The Authority would lose power, and I was right! Yeah! I'm like a magical clairvoyant. I predict that one of my next guests will be wearing a silk/rayon pantsuit that's way too tight. Either in the colors of red, white, or blue, and hopefully it's not the guy. My guests now, Rusev and Lana!

Rusev and Lana to the ring. Lana in a red skirtsuit! "USA!" chants. Rusev poses with the strap to heat.

Lana – Before you bore us with your juvenile humor, let me remind you that last night, at TLC, Rusev remained undefeated when he crushed that stupid American once again. So, if you have any intelligent questions, that would be worthwhile, which you're probably not capable of that. We will give you the honor to ask.

Jericho – First of all I appreciate that. And I was right, you are wearing a suit again, red. Fake diamond buttons, right? Isn't the rule that you're not supposed to wear the same outfit on TV twice in a row? Kind of a girl thing, right. Why are you so angry all the time. Is it that bun that makes you look like a big pineapple on your head?

Lana – Oh please, shut tup!

Jericho – You don't have to tell me to shut up. Rusev why you always so angry? All that pent up stress? Maybe you need to release some of that stress, man. Maybe you need to show Lana your Sputnik!

Lana – Shut tup!

Jericho – I struck a nerve! There's something going on between you two, huh? Rusev and Lana sitting in a tree. K-I-S-S-I-N-G! First comes love, then comes...You know it. Are you just Putin's butt puppets? I think there's something going on here. Is it possible that the guy who looks like an unwashed cab driver really has a thing for you and wants to show you his cosmonauts. You know? He wants to be with the grimy, slimy, frozen-faced, basket case, dingbat, ringrat, holarchy, right? It's the US Champ, and the Communist tramp! Let your freak flag fly, baybay!

Lana – Shut tup! Shut tup!

Jericho – Shut up!

Lana – Shut tup!

Jericho – Shut up!

Lana – Shut tuuuuuup!

Jericho – Shut uuuuup!

Rusev takes Lana's mic and glares at Jericho. "Y2J!" chants. Lana talks to Rusev off mic.

Rusev – Little man, big mouth. You talk too much. Maybe, I just crush you now.

Jericho – Listen, I don't know what it is about me, maybe I say the wrong thing sometimes. Like every time I'm on Raw, somebody wants to beat me up, somebody wants to fight me, but it's the same for you Rusev. Every time your out here somebody wants to fight you. And I know there's somebody who wants to beat you up, right here, right now!

"Feed me more!" Out comes The Big Guy! "Feed me more!" and he gets in the ring. Jericho fled the ring to them. Ryback stands there seething as the fans loudly chant, "Feed me more!" Rusev talks smack off mic, as does Lana. Ryback says a bit, but it's Rusev who's backing away. Lana down the stairs. Rusev poses with his strap on the apron. "USA!" chants. Rusev leaves with Ryback watching him the whole way. Rusev shows his strap the whole time. Ryback gets his "Feed me more!" chant going loudly, him leading it all.

Renee – My guests at this time, the WWE TTCs Miz and Mizdow. Miz how do you think you will fare going against Jimmy Uso.

Miz – Renee, let me set the scene for you. A long time ago, in a land far, far away, there was a young man named Jimmy Uso who was TTC. But his feelings of inadequacy and jealousy led to his downfall, and I'm TTC, I'm the Hollywood A-lister, and the only way Jimmy Uso will be on a red carpet is if he's with Naomi to a movie premier or record launch. But, Jimmy Uso is quickly, quickly spoiling any opportunity she may have at making anything of herself. Tonight the credits will role on the story of Jimmy Uso.

Jericho out in a blinkie jacket, and to the ring. As he walked down the ramp he flicked his head the way he always did when he had long hair, even though he hasn't had long hair in years! Heyman out in black sweats.

Heyman – I, ah, I know you're expecting me to have a whole bunch of tricks up my sleeve here, and I don't have any. I could give you a bunch of analogies, like, if you back even a squirrel into a corner, he'll rip your face off. Or, even something humorous, like, hey, Chris Jericho, my name is Paul Heyman and I'm the Jew in Jujitsu. But I don't find anything funny about this. I don't find this to be entertaining. I don't find this to be entertainment. I find this rather disturbing, because I know what a crowd pleaser you are, and understand that the beating you're about to give me is anything but rated PG. (into the ring) I've been thinking about this, and I'm not going to rub it in your face that I gave you your greatest career break in ECW, and the fact now that you've sold millions and millions of CDs, and you have a podcast that's rated #1, and that you're a globally touring concert. (seeming to have troubles breathing) I gave you your break, and I'm not looking for a piece of the action, I just don't understand how you could fight me over $200. (Heyman's voice is getting squeaky) from 20 years ago. I get it, it's the principle of it all. I don't blame you. Why don't we call it even? I give you $200 and you give me a pass. Heyman reaches into the pocket of his hoodie.

Out comes the checkbook! Heyman starts writing and Cole yells about that bouncing! Jericho slaps the checkbook out of Heyman's hands, then kicks it from the ring.

Jericho – I don't want $200, I want to go to the App and see what kind of match we're going to have right now. Which one is it? Which one did you vote for?

Extreme Rules – 39%
No Holds Barred – 18%
Street Fight – 43%

Off comes Jericho's jacket, and Heyman looks about to cry. Or throw up.

Cole – Paul Heyman hasn't even played checkers athletically!

Heyman – Okay, if you think I'm the guy they portray me as on TV, that I will back down from you. If I have to (voice cracks). I just don't understand why you're going to go with an App. I don't understand why you think it's fair to get in a fight with – Brock Lesnar!

Big Show stops in his tracks, then starts up.

Big Show – Oh, I'd like to see you do that pretty boy. Everybody's excited you're back on Raw, but you made one little mistake, you put your hands on me last night. I'm sorry pretty boy, so I'm going to have to put you back on the injured reserve list. You feel me?

Backstage Segment

Renee – Please welcome my guest at this time, Seth Rollins.

Rollins – Renee, before you even get started, this is getting ri-diculous! A short 24 afters, a short 24 hours after my hellacious match with Cena at TLC and I'm expected to be in a Steel Cage Match tonight? With the same John Cena who has cost me two matches of my career in the past two months. You know how that happened? Because this is a madhouse Renee! Everyone's doing what they want. No one's safe. The only reason I feel safe is I got J&J Security here. You're not safe. The supposed people in power are not safe. You saw what happened to Jericho out there. Chris ran his mouth and deserved what he got, but that's not the point. The point is, this place is missing something. We need the guidance and control of The Authority. We need The Authority back in power. I'm in no condition to perform. Any normal man wouldn't be here tonight. He'd be in a hospital somewhere. I'm no normal human being. I'm going to summon the courage to go out there tonight and finish what I started at TLC, and in the process teach Cena a lesson that he will not soon forget. Let's go boys.
