Drew McIntyre, Randy Orton, Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Christian, and Big Show Segment 

Shawn Michaels: All right, it’s been a long time since I’ve done this, but here we go. Welcome to Monday Night Raw. Yeah, without further ado, let me introduce to you, the man who defeated Randy Orton last night at Clash Of Champions, and still your WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre.

Drew McIntyre: Man, this is pretty cool. I’m standing in the ring, with these four legends, I didn’t expect to see you last night, but that was pretty cool, too. I’ve known these guys for a long time, I don’t know if a lot of people know that. I’ll start with Big Show and Christian. I grew up with these two guys, we’ve traveled the world together, right through my 20’s. And Christian was always looking out for me, going to bat for me, helping me improve in this ring. Big Show, I’m not gonna say anything bad, I’m gonna put you over. Man, when tough times get tough, and they got tough a lot of times, you were there like a big brother, giving me advice, looking out for me, and i’ve always appreciated that. Shawn, what can I say, you’ve been a mentor to me, you looked out for me, especially our time at NXT, and I wouldn’t be in the position I’m in right now without you.

Ric Flair, man, I love your stories, I appreciate your advice. And I was thinking of a story earlier, I don’t know if I ever told you or told many people, when I first came to America, you were still in the active roster before somebody retired you, not gonna say who. But I remember being 22, wondering what was going on, oh my goodness, i’m at WWE, i’m in the locker room right now, you came back from your match and I thought, i’m on the same roster as Ric Freaking Flair, and that was so cool. The funny thing is, what’s brought all of us back to together, is our disdain for one Randall Keith Orton, which brings me to the good news. Last night, at Clash Of Champions, Randy and I went to war, we beat the hell out of each other, but in the end, I put his ass in an ambulance, and I still stand here WWE Champion. Look at that virtual reaction, that’s awesome.

Shawn Michaels: I got news for you, that’s one of the reasons we came out here, obviously is to collectively thank you for, honestly, whooping that Randy Orton ass. You know, as we were all off, recovering from what Randy Orton did to us, we kinda got together, obviously, and showed up last night. We know that you weren’t really aware of that, but we sorta wanted to get out there, and even the odds, so to speak, and get a little revenge on our part, so we hope you don’t mind that we came up with that. And if you are upset about that, for us interfering in that match, it was Ric’s fault.

Drew McIntyre: Oh, Ric. You know what? I already prove that I can beat Randy Orton at SummerSlam. At this stage, things have gotten so personal, I don’t care how many people start beating on him, I welcome it, I hope people to start attacking him on the streets, to be honest, that would be just fine with me.

Randy Orton: Drew, up here. I hope that you’re enjoy this moment, because it will not last. This is not gonna be over until I say it is over. You think that you went through hell with me last night? Brother, you’ve got no idea, what hell is, but you will. I won’t be finished with you until I am WWE Champion.

Drew McIntyre: Let me guess, you’re gonna beg for another match, Randy?

Randy Orton: You just don’t get it, do you, Drew? You just don’t get it. I don’t need to beg for anything. I’ll be given a title match because I am Randy Orton. I will be given a title match because I am 13-Time WWE Champion. The only reason that I am here, the only reason that I am here, today, is to remind you and everyone else in that ring, that there is a price to be paid when you cross, The Legend Killer.

Drew McIntyre: Such a shame, I guess Randy Orton has left the building. Well, this talk about titles has given me an idea. I’m standing here in the ring here with four former world champions, I’m currently trying to cement my legacy, and what can kind of champion I want to be. Be it the largest, fighting champion, the show stopper, the most titles ever, I’m gonna put my title on the line tonight. I don’t feel great from last night, but that’s champion I want to be. I’m issuing an open challenge, to anyone in the back that I’ve not faced for this WWE Championship. Who wants to step up? Who wants to prove themselves? Who wants to be the man around here? Somebody, please step up.

The King’s Court With Special Guest: Seth Rollins, Buddy Murphy and The Mysterio Family 

Jerry The King Lawler: All right, Welcome To The King’s Court. You know, last week on Raw, Seth Rollins tried to play some mind games with my guest tonight, by saying that, well, that Rey Mysterio might not actually be Dominik’s father. So now, please welcome, The Mysterio Family. Rey, thank you all for joining me here tonight. Let’s just get started. Do you care to comment on what went down last week?

Rey Mysterio: Yes I would, King. We all know Seth has been running his mouth, trying to upset my family. Seth can’t even control his own house, so now he’s trying to disrupt mine. It’s obvious, King, that Dominik and Aalyah, they’re my kids, I am their father. You know, my beautiful wife Angie and I have worked really hard to build a strong and loving family. King, my family means the world to me. Dominik and Aalyah have been my whole life, since the day they were born. And it really takes a truly evil and sinful human begin, to fabricate the kind of lies, that Seth Rollins has.

Dominik Mysterio: You know what, Dad, this has gone on for way too long, and it’s gone way too far. Next time I see Seth Rollins, i’m gonna put an end to this.

Jerry The King Lawler: Hang on now, listen, I understand your frustrations, Dominik. Seth Rollins may be lying, because we didn’t see any documentation last week. But what we did see, was Aalyah being upset by your words, Rey. You said, and I quote, “Aalyah is naive and knows nothing about our world.” And that led to, Aalyah, walking out of the ring, walking away from your family, going to back and then getting approached by Murphy of all people. So now that you’ve had a week to reflect on all the events, I want to know how you’re feeling?

Aalyah Mysterio: I am still a little bit upset about what happened last week. My parents have a certain image of me, but at the end of the day, I am 19 years old. As far as Murphy goes, he came up to me and sat next to me, I didn’t go looking for him, so I don’t know what to think about him. What I do know, is that whoever surrounds themselves around Seth, really needs reevaluate their life choices. Seth is a really bad person. He’s a fraud.

Seth Rollins: Such harsh words, Mysterio’s. Up here. Guys, look, I know I might be the last person in the world that you want to see right now. And after what happened last week, I can completely understand. But what I have to tell you tonight, it’s important. And I promise you, this is gonna bother me ,just as much as it’s gonna bother you guys. But what I have to tell you, is the truth. And the truth is that one of you isn’t being 100% honest with the family. The truth is that Aalyah might not be telling the truth in regards to how she feels about my disciple, Murphy. And I know, why would you believe me, why would believe anything that comes out of my mouth, any words that I have to say. The thing is, you don’t have to believe my words, you can see it for yourself. Take a look at what I found in Murphy’s phone. Oh, that seems like she’s a little friendlier than she’s leading on, I mean, there’s a happy birthday message in those DMs. The truth hurts, Rey, it hurts me too. But I promise you, it’s for the greater good.
