“Yes, sir, we promised you a great main event…”
We are live in Toronto, Canada! The show kicks off with hometown hero Edge making his way to the ring. He welcomes us to the cutting edge. He says he was requested by Triple H because it would be good for business. He thought it would be good to have a reunion with, not Christian, but his former partner Randy Orton, from Rated RKO. Edge says that Orton is merely Triple H’s lackey. Edge has decided that Randy will not be the guest on his show, but instead it will be Daniel Bryan.
Enter Daniel Bryan. Bryan says that even though he has been attacked, there is satisfaction with the struggle. Bryan says that he knows he will beat the Shield, along with Orton and become the WWE champion. Edge says that the people love Bryan because he didn’t come into the business the easy way. Edge sees a bit of himself in Bryan. Edge doesn’t know if Bryan can beat Orton but he deserves a fair shot. He asks Bryan if he thinks he can beat Orton. Bryan says yes. Edge asks if Bryan can show that he is the face of the WWE.
Enter Randy Orton. Orton says that it’s a shame that when he comes around from time to time, the only place that cares for him is a place like Canada. He says it’s also a shame that his body failed him at such a young age. Edge says that it’s a shame that Orton is supposed to be the face of the WWE but acts like a completely different body part. Edge says that he had problems with his spine but at least he has one. He reiterates that Orton has become Triple H’s lackey, and says that Triple H has poor judgment in talent.
Enter Triple H. Edge says that unlike the rest of the locker room, he doesn’t have to bite his tongue because he’s not employed here. Edge says that Triple H sucks at picking talent. He thought that Jericho couldn’t make it, and didn’t think Cena could make it either. Triple H says that he had to spend quite a sum to promote Edge’s show, and plugs it mid sentence. Triple H admits that he didn’t expect much from Jericho and he was proven wrong, along with Cena. Time will tell on Daniel Bryan, but there was one person that Triple H was right about being a failure, and that’s Edge. Triple H says that Edge never drew a dime in his Rated R super star time. Triple H will give Bryan a chance to prove him wrong tonight when he goes one on one with Dean Ambrose. Since Ambrose will have someone in his corner, so will Bryan: The Big Show. Triple H says things would be much easier if people would try to get along with him. Edge says that he didn’t have to marry into the business like he did. Edge says that Triple H may not be a dictator, but he is a dic – and is cut off by Triple H. Triple H says that although he cannot hurt Edge, he can hurt the ones that he loves. The Shield carry out Christian and lay him on the stage.
Edge busts into Triple H’s room and says that he wishes he were cleared by doctors so he could get his hands on Triple H. Triple H asks Edge who he thinks he is coming into his town, his city and running his mouth. Triple H tells Edge to get out of his city.
