“Yes, sir, we promised you a great main event…”
The show starts with Raw Adviser Vickie Guerrero facing the camera.
Vickie: Good evening. Tonight we will honor the pinnacle of sports entertainment. Both the World Heavyweight Championship and WWE Championship. Both symbolize great prestige and greatness. And I would like to thank the McMahon family for letting me make this match tonight. World Champion Alberto Del Rio versus WWE Champion John Cena.
Daniel Bryan comes out and heads to the ring which has a ladder and the Money in the Bank briefcase hanging over him. He grabs a microphone.
Bryan: Last week the burning question on everyone's mind was finally answered. "Is Daniel Bryan the weak link?"
Bryan: After making Randy Orton tap out in the middle of the ring, you guys answered that question already: NO! NO! But that begs an entirely new question. Can Daniel Bryan ride this wave of momentum into the Money in the Bank match and win the WWE Championship contract?
Bryan: If only there was some sort of simple three letter word to give a definitive answer to that question. I think you guys had it the first time. YES! YES! YES! You see I want to be WWE Champion. I want to follow in the footsteps of the greats. Bruno Sammartino. Hulk Hogan. Steven Austin. The Rock. Daniel Bryan. And why not? Two years ago I wont a Money in the Bank match and cashed in to become the World Heavyweight Champion. And it's been far too long. And just because this Money in the Bank is filled with all stars doesn't mean that history can't repeat itself. I will be WWE Champion!
Sheamus comes out and makes his way to the ring.
Sheamus: Howdy, Danny boy! Since we're talking about history, let's talk about how that story ended.
Bryan: I don't think anyone wants to know how that ended.
Sheamus: You don't want to hear about how I beat you for the World Championship at WrestleMania in 18 seconds? I'm not saying i'm going to win in 18 seconds, but it's been far too long since I had the championship around my waist, and I won't let you have it.
Bryan: Is there any chance that if I call 1-800-FELLA you can Brogue Kick yourself in the face?
Sheamus: I didn't know gremlins were so funny.
Orton comes out and heads down the ramp.
Orton: Wait a minute. Let me get this straight. You two complain about not being champion for awhile? I haven't been champion for two years. I'm not hungry. I'm STARVING. And a starving man takes what he needs. And I need the WWE title. So, after I win the contract I will not hesitate to cash it in on the first unsuspecting champion that I see.
Bryan: I think we all know what you're capable of, but there's something else that I know. I know that last week I made you tap out.
"You tapped out" chants.
Orton: I'm gonna let that one slide, but you disrespect me one more time i'm going to drop you where you stand. Now it's true I am desperate, you know what that means? That means in two weeks no one is safe.
Kane comes out. He walks down to the ring.
Kane: I agree, Randy. No one IS safe. Especially you. No one in the history of WWE has been more ruthless than me especially when the WWE championship is involved. I have no problem committing unspeakable acts against my opponents. Even my so called "friends".
He looks at Bryan
Bryan: Why are you looking at me like that KANE?! Clearly you're upset because of what happened on Smackdown, but it's not my faulty that unlike me you couldn't beat Orton.
Kane: That's why I can't wait for the Money in the Bank match. It's every man for himself. No partners, no friends...only victims.
Bryan: And that's the way you want it? Fine! I'm going to be WWE Champion!
Kane: I'm going to be WWE Champion!
Bryan: I'M going to be WWE Champion!
Kane: I'M going to be WWE Champion!
Christian comes out and heads to the ring.
Christian: I hate to beak up this little lover's quarrel, but let me remind you that when it comes to the ladder match there is one man who has had more experience and success than anybody, and that's me. Now i've been gone for awhile and when I came back I said I was looking for one more match, and that's going to be for the WWE championship. Now it's like this...I might not be the biggest guy in this match. I might not be the strongest guy. I might not be the scariest guy. I might not even be the hairiest guy in this match. But you all should believe one thing; that I am the best!
Punk comes out and joins the others.
Punk: You know I said I wasn't going to come out and do the predictable thing and do what you guys are doing. But then I heard that magic word "best". Christian I respect the hell out of you and all you've done, I really do. But not only am I the best in the world, i'm the best at the Money in the Bank ladder match. I'm the only man who can say I won it twice. And soon i'll be the only to say he won it three times. But I don't want you gentlemen to misunderstand me. Aw hell we're all jerks I don't care if you misunderstand me. I'm the best in this business. But there's one guy missing from the bunch. Rob Van Dam.
Punk: Rob Van Dam. I know your game plan. You're fearless. You have no disregard for safety. You'll do whatever it takes to climb. Sheamus, one of the toughest guys I ever dealt with. Randy-
Bryan: ENOUGH! You gonna talk about each of us and say why you're better than us? You say one more word and i'll make you tap out faster than I made Orton tap.
Orton: I warned you
He advances towards Bryan. Kane gets in front. Bryan grabs Kane.
Bryan: I don't need anyone fighting my battles!
Kane turns back around. Orton suddenly gives Kane the RKO. The other wrestlers look around at one... (Continues on next page)
