Raw Starts

Orton to the ring to huge pop.

Orton – Payback, Payback, what a fitting name for a PPV. Payback is what I'm getting on Rollins. Last week on Raw the 'Universe' voted on a Triple Threat Match, which adds Reigns into the fold. Reigns is going to experience bitter disappointment, but that's not my problem because I'm walking out WWE WHC. There's not a damn thing Rollins and Reigns can do about.

Reigns through the stands to the ring.

Reigns – Yeah, all that stuff, it's not going down like that. If anyone's getting Payback on Rollins, it's me.

"RKO!" chants.

Reigns – They don't work for you.

Orton – (to a fan) That's pretty good. (to Reigns) What, I'm coming to the ring to stand in the corner.

Reigns – You can stand anywhere, but come near me and you won't be standing.

Orton – Obviously you forgot who you're talking to. Obviously you forgot our past. I don't need to remind you that I'm 12 time WHC, in 12 consecutive WrestleManias. How many have you been in? Three, I think? How many times have you worn WHC gold? I think you have some catching up to do.

Reigns – Last time I checked, I beat you at SummerSlam. I'm telling you right now, and I want my Payback on Seth, but don't mind breaking you in half again and getting the 1-2-3 for the Championship.

They argue off mic, then get pushy, then New Day comes out.

Woods – Hold on! All this negativity must stop!

"New Day sucks!"

Woods – We are the only Champions out here, so we must spread the power of positivity.

Kofi – POP, holding it down!

Woods – Now, both of you are so negative, who's going to beat up Rollins. No one cares about your Montreal boo-hoo job! Those days are over, and today is a new day!


Kofi – I know both of you guys have squandered your opportunities, but look...

"New Day sucks!" and Orton claps with them.

Kofi – Don't worry about your past failures, it's a New Day! And everybody knows New Day rocks!

Big E – Roman don't let it bother you that you never won the big one. Randy, don't worry that not only has your number, but has it on speed dial. You keep getting knocked down.

Woods & Kofi – Over, and over, and over!

Big E – But, tonight you have the opportunity to change all that. To do something positive, extraordinary! Clap with New Day!

They clap, the fans chant.

Kofi – I told you they wouldn't do it, they're being hard headed, and that's a shame! There is something you're going to do, take on your Tag Team Champs, New Day! We talking about all three of us.

Woods – That's from the DOO!

Big E – You will feel the pain!

Woods – Devil's Favorite Demon always plotting and scheming.

Kofi – It's going down and about to happen, right now!

They clap away again.

Video recap of the high points of the match. New Day celebrates on the stage, then heads out. Reigns is pacing the mat, and Orton is down and holding his gut.

Kane – Gentlemen. I would like your undivided attention. There is no shame in losing to the TTCs. If your evening ended now, you could leave with your heads held high, but your evening isn't ending right now. I can see that you've a growing dislike for each other. I don't want to squash that, I want to exploit that. ("What?") So, in tonight's main event, Orton will go one on one with Reigns. Because that's what's best for business.

Neither Reigns or Orton look happy about this. Orton is still on the mat holding his gut. Orton rolls out, still selling the gut, glaring in at Reigns.

Backstage Segment

Kane walking along, New Day celebrates as he passes. Kane stops at Rollins and J&J Security.

Rollins – Kane it's funny to me that you think that's going to make a difference. You don't understand? You're like the spoiled rotten kid who's been bad all year long, then shapes up the night before Christmas so he can make amends with Santa Claus. What you did with Roman and Randy, but The Authority are coming back, and will punish you for what you've done to me.

Kane – Forgive me Seth, I'm having trouble relating to your analogy. I was never really close with Santa. Instead of leaving milk and cookies for him, I usually sat in the chimney with a blowtorch, attempting to fry his chestnuts. That was kinda my thing. Regardless of that, I made these matches with Reigns and Orton because it's what's best for business. Which brings me to you, I don't think I can allow the WWE WHC to do nothing while his opponents are in action.

Rollins – What are you talking about? That's the only thing that you're supposed to do!

Kane – Let's agree to disagree. Last week's main event was marred by outside interference. Tonight, we're going to have a rematch. You versus Dean Ambrose. And, so we don't have a replay of last week, J&J Security is banned from ringside.

Rollins – What are you talking about? They weren't even the outside interference! You were the outside interference! Kane, there's no point to having that match. I beat Ambrose! Ambrose knows he cannot beat me. The only reason he's even going out there tonight is to try to hurt me so I'm not 100% at Payback! Why don't you get that?

Kane – Well, if you'd prefer, you could have one hand tied behind your back. Or maybe a match with both ankles tied together. Or maybe you'd could just be tied to the ring post? How does that sound? Just say the word, and I can make it happen.

Rollins puts a finger in Kane's face, about to say something.

Kane – You say one word, and we have a new main event!

Rollins puts his finger down, makes frustrated noises, and stomps off. Kane watches him go.


In Ring Segment

Renee announces Ryback to the ring. He comes out in workout pants and a Ryback shirt. Video of Ryback destroying Bo, then taken out by Wyatt last week on Raw.

Ryback – Montreal, you sound hungry!

Almost no response to Ryback.

Renee – Ryback, last week on Raw and Smackdown, you were viciously attacked by Bray Wyatt, any idea why you've been his target?

Ryback – Renee, I have no idea why Bray did what he did, all I know is that he made a very stupid decision. The self-proclaimed new face of fear thinks he can scare The Big Guy.

"Goldberg!" chants are growing.

Ryback – I'm no stranger to fear. All my life I've had to face fear. The Big Guy loves you guys too!If you ignore it, you just keep doing it!

Ryback completely turned the chants around, and a much louder chant of "Feed me more!" took over in the stands. (He won!)

Ryback – Throughout my years in the WWE, I've had some very sever injuries, one of which I broke my ankle in three places. Top doctors said I'd never wrestle again, do what I wanted to do since I was this tall. Top doctors told me I would never wrestle. Bray, I've had to face fear my entire life. What I do Bray, I take fear and negativity, and I eat it. I put it in the pit of my stomach and turn it into positives. That is what I do. I wake up each day thankful and hungry. Hungry to succeed, hungry to be my best. Hungry to help others, hungry to be a hero to every kid in this audience. Every kid watching at home. Hungry to step foot in this ring, each and every night. On the greatest show in the world, Monday Night Raw, to get in the ring and scream in unison with each and every one of you!

Ryback leads the "Feed me more!" chants.

Ryback – This Bray Wyatt is why I do, because of the WWE 'Universe'. It's about taking chances, about living life, coming out each week and screaming "Feed me more!" Wyatt, you wanted my attention, you got it. You don't scare me. You never would. You never could. You never will. Fact, you woke me up, and I'm starving. Wyatt, talking time is done. It's feeding time!


Wyatt – This inhuman world, inhuman monster. You, you paint yourself as this untouchable force, but I can see beneath the surface, you're nothing more than a scared little boy. Deathly afraid that people will see through your facade. See your failures, but it's the fear that molds us all. The fear that dominates. We fear the unknown, and it causes us to pledge our allegiance to these higher powers. Hahaha. I'm gonna tell you a little secret – everything you love, everything that you're afraid to lose is all gonna fade away. In time, friend, so will you. Hahaha! Run!

Ambrose to the ring. Rollins out to the ring, all by himself!

Kane – Seth, before this match begins, I want you to know I've taken your sentiments to heart. Per your idea, you claim there's, how did you put it, no point to this match, but I'm going to put an end to that. If Ambrose defeats you tonight, he will be added to the main event at Payback, and it will become a Fatal 4 Way Match!

Rollins – Kane, you cannot do that. Last week we had an App vote, and the 'Universe' voted for a Triple Threat Match, and if you don't give them, if I voted for that, I would be so...

Ambrose rips the mic out of Rollins' hands and smiles. "YES!" "YES!" "YES!"

Ambrose – I think it's a great idea. Does anybody here have a problem with me being added to that Championship Match so I can beat Seth Rollins...

Rollins – Give me that! You think this is funny, Ambrose? You think that's funny? I don't have to listen to you (Ambrose), or any of you (fans). It doesn't matter what anyone in Canada thinks, because Canada doesn't matter. I am the WWE WHC, and...

Backstage Segment

Rollins – Kane, I should beat the crap out of you right now. Did you see that? Now my Title Match at Payback is a Fatal 4 Way, huh! What are you trying to do, kill me?

Kane – Seth, it was 'Universe' who created the match. And to be honest, it was you who turned it into a Fatal 4 Way when you lost to Ambrose. Maybe you'd like me to keep adding people? Maybe seven is your lucky number? Eight? How would you like to defend you Title in a match with nine participants? Seth, I know you're upset, but this is all about making you better. Making you a man. Overcoming adversity, becoming the person and Champion you can be, the Champion we NEED you to be. Seth, there's no reason to worry, I have a plan.

Kane leaves.

Rollins – You got a plan? You plan worked real well out there. Can you believe him?

Cena US Title Open Challenge

Seriously loud singing for Cena, louder than even Chicago. Heat when Cena holds the strap high. The more he poses, the greater the heat, and louder the singing, that continues after the music stops, even gets louder! Cena has to wait for them to stop – taunting them a bit.

Cena – I quit.

Huge pop!

Cena – Those words have meaning now, don't they?

"Ole Ole! Ole Ole!"

Cena – It sounds like there's some people in Montreal who actually wish I quit.

The pop is even louder!

Cena – That I would give up. That I would walk away.

"YES!" "YES!" "YES!"

Cena – But you know me. You know I've dealt with this type of adversity for years, and years, and years. And Montreal knows, no matter the hostility, whether a critic or opponent, I never give up. (heat) So, at Payback I will fight Rusev for the last time, whether I'm US Champ or not, because if he can make me say 'I quit' I don't deserve a rematch.

"Ole Ole! Ole Ole!"

Cena – Making me say 'I quit' is more difficult than making you stop singing. It ain't never gonna happen. Yes, this match at Payback is brutal, punishing, will test a man's will...

Some chant I cannot understand. Maybe "Y2J!"? I'm not sure. Cena waits for them to get it out.

Cena – This is passion. You're a rowdy crowd who says what you want and does what you want, because you're a passionate people! (pop) That's the difference between me and Rusev. He just wants to win the match and be Champion. He wants to crush Cena. In two weeks at Payback, I fight for everything I've fought for for the past ten years! (heat) And I, just like you, will not go quietly into the night. Let me ask you a question. You give me an answer. If your back is against the wall and you're fighting for what you believe in, and someone puts a mic in your face, do you quit? What is your answer?


Cena – What is your answer!?


Cena – Guy in the pink tank top, what is your answer?


Cena – Guy next to him with the Affliction shirt, texting on your phone, what's your answer?


Cena – Hell, there's a guy wearing a Nordiques' jersey over there! (heat) They left town in 96, but he will not give up! He fights for what he believes in.

Pop from the fans, and the camera zeros in on the guy in the Nordiques' jersey who looks a bit sheepish.

Cena – Whether it's a jersey, or cheering for the Habs (a nickname for the Montreal Canadiens) (pop), or whether it's a Championship, we as human beings fight for what we believe in! This is a city that knows tradition, and I'm very...

"Go Habs go!" chants stop Cena.

Cena – That is the sound of people who believe! Here's a sentence from another guy who believes. I'm proud of this Championship, and I'm proud to be the man who never gives up, no damn different. In two weeks I will proudly say, the Champ is here! I lost track of time, but the Champ is here right now! Judging by the noise, Montreal is the place to be. And I say John Cena is the man to beat. (heat) So, the John Cena US Open Challenge officially starts right now! You want some, come get some!

Cena hands over the strap, runs the ropes, and then stops dead when Bret Hart's music hits. The fans are wild, as they should be!

Hart – I'm here for one reason, I'm here to introduce a great wrestler. I'm here to introduce a great wrestler that...

Slater's music hits, and Cena says to Bret's back, "And it's that!?"

Slater – Wait a minute! I will not let my moment to be US Champion get stepped on again, especially right here, in Montreal, baybay! I'm telling ya, in the USA we refer to you as le incompetent. That's incompetent. I can speak French. I was RKOd out of nowhere. Then, (to a fan) shut up! And then Rusev wanted to attack me from behind out of nowhere! (climbs into the ring) People, I am sick and tired of getting attack out of nowhere!

Bret throws one right, the one holding the mic, into Slater's face, and he's been attacked again, out of nowhere!

Hart – As I was saying, I came here tonight to introduce to you the hometown boy, from Montreal, Canada. And I can't wait for you (pointing at Cena) to face off against the surprise challenge, one of NXT's hottest and biggest Superstars. Let's give it up for Sami Zayn!

The place erupts for their hometown boy to make his WWE TV debut on Raw!

Out comes Zayn to continuing huge pop. Into the ring, and Zayn shakes Hart's hand. Hart then shakes hands with Cena. A closeup on a glowing Zayn, and there's something stuck in his mustache, hopefully not snot.
