This RAW after the RR starts with a recap of the RR Match. They show bits of the start of it, then HHH comes out. Who’s #30 and the shocker of the show – Cena! The fans go wild and the video shows him eliminating a lot of people until it’s down to him and HHH. He gets The Game up and FUs him from the ring to win! He looks really pumped up and ripped.
No opening music and pyro, it goes right into Cena’s music and he comes out to the ring to mixed reviews from the fans. He basks in the glory of being back in the ring with a huge grin on his face before getting serious. His music goes off and there’s a lot of heat mixed in with females cheering for him. He says what he likes about that city is that no matter what they think, they’re going to get loud and rowdy. The heat gets louder. He says he’s there to answer a question that’s been on everyone’s mind? How could this be possible? In September he suffered and injury. “Cena sucks” chants. He says he’s not going to lie, but it’s music to his ears. The doctors said he’d be out for about a year. So, for the first time in his career he’d have to watch the greatest spectacle from home. A new champion was crowned and life went on in the WWE. In the last second of the final hour he risked his career for one damn chance to maybe, maybe get an opportunity to go to WM. Huge heat from the crowd.
He says maybe it was luck, maybe is was skill, maybe it was both. But the impossible has happened, he’s back, he’s the winner of the 21st RR and damn it he’s going to WM. A mixture of “Cena” and “Cena sucks” chants. That is unless the fans want WM tonight. There’s someone out back who has something he wants and he wants to officially challenge him for it. He challenges Orton for the title in Philly. The fans want this and make a lot of noise for it.
Audio keeps cutting out for brief seconds through this whole start of the show. Orton comes out to the stage to heat from the crowd. He says he has an answer for him, but he doesn’t think it’s one he wants to hear. He’s been issued lots of challenges. “You suck” chants. Last night Jeff Hardy just wanted to break through, but the same thing happened to him. He’s beaten all his challengers.
Yes, Cena says, he’s beaten them all. And Orton’s done the thing no one else has done, he put Cena out of commission. He saw a good opportunity and took it, that’s why he’s going to take this match tonight. Cena shows his scar and say Orton knows in four months that Cena’s not healed. Even though Orton doesn’t want to face Cena, because he’s never beaten him, but he needs every advantage he can get. What’s he going to do, wait 8 weeks for Cena to heal up so he can beat Orton’s ass? Would Orton like to do that? “Cena” chants.
Orton says that since he put Cena on the shelf, he’s become a very, very big deal. A bigger deal than Cena’s ever been. That’s why he’ll never defend the title unless these people open their wallets and pay to see it. That means he won’t be facing Cena tonight. But since Cena can’t wait for WM and Cena’s a hot head who isn’t healed, but he will do it at the next PPV. Unless Cena wants to wait for WM.
Cena says Orton’s on, he’s not waiting for WM. But what about tonight? Cena hasn’t forgotten about what Orton did to him. He didn’t forget it’s Orton’s fault he took the one thing that means anything to him. It’s been four months since he’s been in the ring and he wants some. So tonight he will get some.
