Drew McIntyre, Randy Orton, The Miz, and John Morrison Segment

Drew McIntyre: Welcome everyone to Monday Night Raw. Well, this Sunday is WWE Survivor Series. And since its inception, Survivor Series has been an American Thanksgiving Tradition. And since i’ve lived in America, over a third of my life, I love Thanksgiving. What’s not to love? You’ve got all the food, you hang out with people you care about, and you tell them what you’re thankful for. You know what? I’ve pretty much grown up my whole adult life in front of the WWE Universe. You, Y’all fall into that category, so i’m gonna tell you some of the things that i’m thankful for.

I’m thankful for family and friends that I can lean on. I’m thankful to my fans. I’m thankful for the WWE Thunderdome bringing us closer together. In fact, Thunderdome, who’s ready to see Drew McIntyre claymore Randy Orton’s head out of his body and regain the WWE Championship tonight? I’m also thankful for the doubters, you know the ones. You’ve got a dream, a goal, they don’t believe in you, they laugh at you, they talk trash, that’s when you gotta believe in yourself. You gotta smile, you gotta work harder, you gotta prove them wrong, then you throw them up and tell them, read between the lines. Speaking of doubters, this past Friday Night on SmackDown, I paid the head of the table Roman Reigns a little visit.

I thought I was doing him a favor, to be honest. I was letting him know that he doesn’t have to concern himself with Randy Orton, he should be thinking about Drew McIntyre because I will be WWE Champion after tonight. And you know what, he didn’t care about Randy Orton, he didn’t care about Drew McIntyre, he doesn’t care about anybody but himself. Roman Reigns has put himself on a pedestal, so high above everyone else, the rest of us look like ants right now. He’s also got his head shoved right up his ass. So here’s what’s gonna happen, I’m gonna win the WWE Championship tonight, i’m gonna go to Survivor Series, i’m gonna climb up right there, and I gonna claymore him back to earth because I am going to humble that man. Anyway, I’d be a fool to overlooked Randy Orton.

Randy Orton: Yeah, that’s right, i’m up here and i’m talking to you. Listen, I hear you out in the ring, and you’re talking about what you’re thankful for, so I figured I chime in and I would tell you what i’m thankful for. And right off the bat, right off the top, I gotta tell you, man, I am thankful for being a 14-time WWE World Champion. But I’m also thankful that fine that was handed to me by WWE, for putting my hands on Adam Pearce last Monday Night on Raw, I am thankful that that fine didn’t phase me. You want to know why it didn’t phase me, because for 20 years, I have been getting fined.

I have been fined more than any WWE Superstar in that locker room. As a matter of fact, I have been suspended more than any other WWE Superstar that’s ever been under contract. Actually, I’ve been at home, under suspension, sitting on my couch, for longer amount of time than 80% of the WWE Locker Room has spent in that ring. And you want to know why I’m still here, Drew? You want to know, I’ll tell you why i’m here ,with all the fines and all the suspensions, and the all rules that I’ve broken. I am still here, I am still the best, I am still on top because I am the greatest wrestler, ever. And I am going to prove it, again, just like I did at Hell in a Cell. I am going to prove it tonight, Drew. I’m going to prove it when I walk out of here, after beating you, still WWE Champion.

Drew McIntyre: I think you forgot something, Randy. I think you forgot, the three most dangerous letters in WWE, RKO. See, we’ve been doing this, so long, we’re finishing each others sentences at this point, but it ends tonight. This time, Drew McIntyre won’t come crashing off a 16 foot Hell in a Cell. This time, tonight, my foot will be crashing through Randy Orton’s damn head and I will once again be WWE Champion.

The Miz: Hey, John, do you happen to know what the date is today?

John Morrison: Yep, it’s November 16th.

The Miz: Correct and what does that mean?

John Morrison: There’s an all new episode of Miz and Mrs. airing tonight after Raw.

The Miz: Correct, and.

John Morrison: And, well, it’s got nothing to do with Hell in a Cell, because that was in the past.

The Miz: Correct and why’s that important?

John Morrison: Well, the present and future are way more interesting, which, by the way, happen to be us because Miz is Mr. Money In The Bank.

The Miz: Correct. And that means nothing is stopping us from cashing in a few favors to sit front row for the WWE Championship Match, tonight.

Drew McIntyre: When will you two ever learn? Remember the past few weeks, what i’ve done to both of you? Imagine what I’ll do to you if you get involved in my match tonight.

The Miz: Drew, I understand that change is hard to deal with. And I know Randy Orton has a hard time talking about his feelings, but it clearly frustrated him tonight. You know, a legend like him, who’s been here for so long, you’d think he would be able to accept in WWE, that the possibilities of change are endless, take tonight for an example. The WWE Championship could change hands. And if it does, it’s clear that the hands holding the WWE Championship by the end of the night, will be mine. Oh, you don’t believe me, Drew? Hey, John, why did the crazed, delusional, mad-man, Bray Wyatt, not show his face last week? Why did he hide in The Firefly Fun House?

John Morrison: Oh, because he’s afraid of us.

The Miz: Correct. Why else?

John Morrison: Oh, I wasn’t expecting a follow up. Because even Bray could figure out, that regardless what Drew McIntyre or Randy Orton did, The Miz could change everything by cashing in that Money In The Bank Contract, any time, any place, and become WWE Champion.

The Miz: Correct. Unfortunately, there is only one person that has not come to terms with this, and that is you, Drew McIntyre. Change is coming, whether you like it or not.

Drew McIntyre: You’re right, change is coming tonight. Do you know the difference between Randy Orton and Drew McIntyre? This might be shocking, but Randy Orton can actually be a patient man. I’m not.

The Miz: Do you realize your impatience is what cost you the WWE Championship? Drew, all that i’m trying to say, is that when you were champion, you gave title match after title match, with anyone with a face. Hell, you gave Randy Orton three title matches, and who says he deserves it? You know what, maybe I don’t deserve a title match. But, tonight, whether you win or lose, I’m gonna be the one laughing all the way to the bank.
