RAW this week start with music and pyro.
Randy Orton’s music and he comes out with his strap over his shoulder. Split screen and video stills from Judgement Day when Orton slapped the ref for the DQ. Cole and King narrated the stills from the match. Orton says he’s still WWE Champion, as we can all see. Last night he wasn’t just looking to retain his title, he was looking to take Batista out for good. As he was about to accomplish that he was stopped by Flair. He should have expected it. Flair was never that fond of him in their Evolution days. Flair saw him as a threat to HHH’s limelight and he was. So he was glad he punted Flair. If he hadn’t Flair might have beaten HBK at WM and still be competing today. He kicked Flair and every other member of Evo in the skull. None are the same, but they all come back for retribution they don’t get. He didn’t stop it from happening from Batista, just delayed the inevitable. He then dared Flair to get in his way again. Flair’s music immediately hit and he came out to the ring with lots of ‘Wooooooo’. Flair said Orton might still be the Champion, but he didn’t beat Batista as a matter of fact Orton was this close to losing so he slapped the ref. He demanded Orton look him in the eye. What makes Orton a big man now? When it comes to Evo Orton was supposed to be the chosen one, the next big deal, THE man. But Batista blew by him and never looked back. Batista became the man. Orton might have his own little group, kick Batista in the head. But until he beats the man… Orton says the championship on his shoulder says he is the man. He can beat Batista any time, anyplace, anywhere. Flair said Orton said he could beat Batista. Flair saw Vicki earlier. She’s wrecked about the ending of last night’s match. Flair gave her an idea and she made it official. In three weeks there’s a PPV. Orton will defend against Batista. Orton doesn’t have to worry about DQ’s, count outs, Cody, Ted, Flair or any of that. This time will be in a steel cage. Flair’s thrilled with this. Orton says that since Flair was so nice to deliver that message, he has a message for Batista from Orton. Punch to Flair and Orton stomps the heck out of Flair. Cody and Ted slowly start down the ramp to the ring. Batista attacks them from behind, but by the time they made it to the ring it was three on two and Legacy was in control. Cena then rushed down. Legacy fled the ring. “Cena” chants. Cena yells at screams at Legacy on the ramp. Cena and Batista help Flair to his feet. Orton’s on the ramp fuming.
Video of Orton attacking Flair before the break and the ensuing run-ins.
Cena out back walking along. Matthews asks about Cena getting involved in that feud. Cena says he’s been beaten down and worn out. People start to question his resolve, but he overcame physics and gravity by beating Big Show. Now people know he won’t let them down. He won’t normally look for trouble. He doesn’t care who wins at Extreme Rules, but it’s only a matter of time before the Champ Is Here. Vicki comes up and says tonight’s main event is Orton and Legacy against Cena and Batista. Cena starts putting on a show for the fans saying not to do it as the sky will fall, cats and dogs laying down together, mass hysteria. Cena then walks off to leave Vicki pissed off.

Beth ducks a kick and sets Mickie up top and hangs her back. Kelly grabs Beth from behind and pissed off Beth. Kelly kicks Beth through the ropes (Beth did most of the tossing of herself out). Beth is really pissed and grabs Kelly’s ankle under the ropes. The ref tries to stop her and is distracted. Maryse leaves announce and sprays hairspray or something of the sort in Mickie’s eyes sending her flopping on the mat. Mickie is thrashing on the apron hard. Kelly easily walked over and nudged Mickie form the ring with her foot.

Matt says no, Jeff broke Matt’s hand a few weeks ago and he wasn’t going to let Jeff have the acclaim Matt deserves. Vicki’s a fair GM.
