Randy Orton & Drew McIntyre Segment  

Randy Orton: Last week, I told the entire world that I would jump through whatever hoops I had to in order to earn a rematch for the WWE Championship. A rematch that i’m already entitled to, already. But anyway, I beat Kevin Owens, I beat Seth Rollins, and I beat Keith Lee. Yet I find myself here again, on Monday Night Raw, facing Keith Lee, once again in singles competition. Now, Keith, don’t take it personal, man, but the more that you and I cross paths, the more likely you’re gonna get kicked in the head. Now, I can go on to list the long list of WWE Superstars who i’ve kicked in the skull over the years, but frankly we don’t have the time, Raw only runs three hours. Now, Drew McIntyre, i’m talking to you now, man, so listen up.

WWE has stated that it will be Drew McIntyre vs. Randy Orton, at Clash Of Champions, for the WWE Title, if, key word, if Drew McIntyre recovers in time. Seems like someone doesn’t think you’re gonna make it to Clash. And if someone out there were to ask me, just why you may not make it to Clash Of Champions, I would tell them the truth. Drew, I’d tell them the truth. And the truth is, I kicked you in the freaking head and broke your jaw. What do you do when your world champion is unable to defend his title, at the one PPV a year where every title must be defended? I got an idea, I got a solution, and it’s quite simple, really. This is what you do, you hand me the WWE Championship. Now, I’m a patient man, but I don’t know if I could wait for Clash Of Champions.

Charly Caruso: Rey, Angie, Dominik, Aliyah, first of all, welcome to the WWE Thunderdome. Now, you all look amazing as usual, of course, nothing less expected. Rey, I want to start by asking you, if you have a recovery update on your torn triceps?

Rey Mysterio: Charly, I first want to thank you for having all of us here tonight. You know, like I said last week, there’s nothing more that I wanted than to get closure on Seth, but unfortunately that didn’t happened. As for my tricep, I don’t have an exact time table yet, but I can’t wait to get back in this ring and put an end to Seth Rollins.

Charly Caruso: Well, Rey, I know I can speak on behalf of the entire WWE Universe, when I say we cannot wait to see you back competing inside this ring. But, as for your son, Dominik, did you give him any words of advice as he heads into his match against Murphy, this evening?

Rey Mysterio: You have no idea how proud I am of my son. Dominik knows exactly what he needs to do tonight against Murphy. We know Murphy wants vengeance and that makes him dangerous. But I am so confident in my son, that he knows what he needs to do tonight, to put an end to Murphy.

Charly Caruso: And, Dominik, what does it mean to you to represent your family and compete on Monday Night Raw, every single week?

Buddy Murphy: Rey, Dominik, up here on the tron. Let me answer that question for you, Dominik. You should feel awful. Because it was you, the one man that picked me up when I was down, turned his back on me. It was because of you, that Seth berated me in the middle of that ring, last week. It is because of you that The Monday Night Messiah wants nothing to do with me.

Rey Mysterio: Murphy. It is not our fault that you chose to pledge your loyalty, to an evil, selfish, son of a bitch like Seth Rollins. You reap what you saw.

Buddy Murphy: You’re right, Rey. But I see clearly, now. See, Dom has a bright future here in WWE, but the ultimate sacrifice, would be to end it before it begins. See, last week, Dominik wants to hit me from behind and show a fight. Lets up the ante, tonight. Dominik, I challenge you to a Street Fight.

Dominik: Murphy, you’ve terrorized my family, just as much as, Seth. So tonight, I more than willing to embarrass you again, in front of your Messiah. As for the Street Fight, I accept.

Buddy Murphy: Well done, Dominik, well done. Just make sure you bring your family, ringside, because it’s gonna be the last match they’ll ever get to see you in.
