Fireworks go off as JR & Jerry Lawler welcome us to Monday Night Raw! They hype up tonight's main segment as CM Punk announces his partner for the Night of Champions tag match against Kurt Angle & Chris Jericho! Vince McMahon's music hits and he makes his way out with The Federation. He climbs into the ring and says that he could address quite a few people right now, but he'd like to address one group of people- the Board of Directors. He says that due to their call, at Night of Champions, Drew Mcintyre will have to defend the WWE Championship against both Mark Henry and Brock Lesnar. He says that the all-Federation match between Mcintyre and Henry was set to be one of the greatest of all time, but now Lesnar is part of it, it won't be. He says at first, he was angry they ruined his idea, but now, after a while of thinking, he's glad they added Lesnar to the match. The fact is Lesnar is going to be destroyed by both Henry and Mcintyre. And then Henry and Mcintyre will have their match that will go down in history! Vince smiles and says that Night of Champions will be Night of The Federation! He goes to leave the ring but Brock Lesnar's music hits and he walks out onto the stage with a microphone. Vince asks what the hell he wants? Brock laughs and says that what he wants is to send a warning. He says that he is warning David Otunga, he is warning David Irvine, he is warning John Cena and he is warning Vince McMahon. Do NOT get involved in the match at Night of Champions, or he is going to bring the pain to every single one of them! Mark Henry grabs the microphone from Vince and tells Brock Lesnar to shut up! He says that if anybody is going to bringing the pain, it'll be him! He says that he's going to bring the hall of pain to Brock Lesnar, and he's going to walk out of Night of Champions as the WWE Champion! Drew grabs the microphone and says that he's sorry big fellas, but while the two of them will be butting heads, he's gonna be the one striking and retaining HIS WWE Championship. Vince grabs the mic back and says that single Brock wants to face these guys so much, tonight's main event will see Brock Lesnar run the gauntlet! If Lesnar can beat Otunga, he'll face Irvine, if he can beat Irvine, he'll face Cena, and whoever he beats will be banned from ringside! Lesnar laughs and nods his head as we head to commercial.
Back from commercial and Xavier Woods music hits. He makes his way out for the next match. Hunico's music hits and he makes his way out with Epico to face Woods.
Match 1: Xavier Woods def. Hunico by DQ.
Finish: Hunico goes up top for the Swanton but Woods hits an armdrag from the top and jumps up top himself. Woods looks set to jump when Epico jumps up and pushes Woods from the top rope to the canvas below for the DQ.
After the decision, Epico & Hunico begin to beatdown on Woods, but Jay Lethal runs down to the ring and makes the save. He throws Epico out of the ring as Woods fights back against Hunico, sending him to the floor below. Lethal & Woods stand tall in the ring as Hunico & Epico back up the ramp.
We cut to backstage where CM Punk is shown. He looks into the camera and says that tonight, his partner will be shown to the entire world. Tonight, he's just got one question for you. Can you smell it? Punk smirks and walks away as we head to commercial.
Back from commercial and The Kings of Wrestling's music hits. They head out for the next match, a non-title match. Carlito's music hits and he heads out with Primo to face The Kings of Wrestling.
Match 2: The Kings of Wrestling def. Carlito & Primo.
Finish: Primo looks for his Backstabber on Castognoli but he reverses into a Side Fall Slam. He picks Primo up and hits the Ricola Bomb! He covers Primo and gets the victory.
After the match, The Kings of Wrestling celebrate their victory as we cut backstage where CM Punk is shown once again. He looks into the camera and says that tonight, his partner will be unmasked to everybody! He's just got one question- are you ready? He smirks and we head to commercial.
Back from commercial and Damien Sandow's music hits. He heads out as the fans all boo him. He climbs into the ring and grabs a microphone. He says that to those of the fans that do not know who he is. He is Damien Sandow, the man who is going to lead everybody into a new age of wrestling, where prosperities awaits any man or woman that can reach up and touch the brass rings he will outlay for all of them to attempt to gain. He says that all of the fans will be treated to a show each and every time he steps into the ring. He says that Chris Jericho, CM Punk and Tyler Reks can all head back to the farm they grew up on, because he is the man who will be the person selling tickets week in, week out on Raw. He looks around at the fans and says 'you're welcome' before dropping the mic and going to leave the ring but he's interrupted by the sound of Christian's music hitting the speakers. He heads out to the ring and asks what the hell Sandow just said? Sandow laughs and says that he doesn't have time for this. He says that Christian is nothing but an ignoramus, and if he doesn't feel like showing these fans the way forward just yet, he will not do so. He bids Christian good day but Christian stops him and says that Sandow needs to realise something, he's not on Superstars anymore. This is the big leagues. Christian says that he's going to be WWE Champion very soon, and Sandow will realise just how good he is. He offers to show Sandow right now, but Sandow says that he has already expressed that he will not be stepping into the ring with Christian tonight. Christian says that he realises that, but if Sandow is going to act like a chicken, he's fine with that too. Sandow stops and says that maybe he should teach Christian some manners. Christian tells him to teach! Sandow throws the microphone down as a referee runs down to the ring, and it looks like we have our next match.
