“Yes, sir, we promised you a great main event…”
As promised, tonight's RAW is Starring Brock Lesnar! We get the Power of the People theme, and here is Johnny Ace! He introduces himself, in case we didn't know who he is and what he does. He said in one night, he revolutionized the WWE. He says we should thank him for bringing the most dangerous athelete. A face that will be synonymous with the WWE in the future. A man who brought legitimacy back to the WWE. He then introduces Brock Lesnar to the show.
Brock is here, with boos following. Last night, the world got to witness first hand, Brock Lesnar bringing the pain, he says. This is exactly what he told the world he was going to do. Ace says ya damned skippy he did, but here comes Triple H to break up the party. He's suited up! Ace looks happy. Triple H shakes the hand of Brock as Ace gloats. Brock, noticeably, dropped his mic and stares at HHH. Triple H says that he's out here to do what Ace is supposed to do, but Ace doesn't have the guts to do it. Triple H looks to Brock. He says that his days of holding up the WWE are through. The private jet that he flew in on here today will not be taking him back home. The limo that brought him here is gone as well.There's no raise, no special treatment, none of it. The name of the show will stay Monday Night RAW. Nobody is bigger than the WWE. If Brock wants to stay, then he is allowed to stay with the contract that was negotiated originally. Triple H claims that he will not be approving the contract from last Monday. Ace says that he was entrusted with this responsibility, and in the interest of fairness, he should keep the word that was given to him. Triple H pulls out the contract and rips it up. He is not approving it.
Trips says Brock is not some country bumpkin, he's a shrewd business man, but he's not getting any of what he requested. He tells Brock that Triple H wants him here. The Universe wants him here. The Universe wants to see Brock in a rematch with Cena, they want to see Brock face off with Orton, Punk, Sheamus, etc. But if Brock is going to give it to them, he's going to do it under the previous contract that was offered to him. Borck looks over at Ace, waiting for some help. Trips says that if Brock wants to take his ball and pack it away, with his loss to John Cena, and go home...so be it.
Ace on the mic, says he doesn't think it's fair to put a talent of Brock's stature in this position. H says it's between Brock and him. He asks Brock how he feels, and here's Ace, pestering him from behind. He tells him to just shut up. Triple H claims to want Brock here. Ace doesn't shut up, and calls Triple H disrespectful. Triple H turns around and says that he doesn't think that Ace understands. When he turns, Brock attacks Triple H!!! He rips the jacket off of Triple H and lays in with some lefts. Triple H tries to fight back but Brock looks to lock in the kimora! Brock cinches it and Cole claims that Brock broke Triple H's arm. Big Show, Kofi, R-Truth, Sheamus and Little Jimmy all come down to help! (Remember when they all walked out on Triple H?) Brock leaves the ring and tosses some steps. Triple H is claiming that the arm is broken as Brock gets walked out.
In the back, the medical staff are checking up on him, and he claims he can't move his arm. He can move his fingers, though.
Eve is out at the top of the ramp and claims that the No. 1 Contender for the WWE Championship will be determined tonight in a Beat the Clock competition. There will be five of them. Eve is sportin some specs, which doesn't help her with the her lines as she messes up a couple of times. The first match is now.
Match 1: The Miz vs. Santino
Santino looks for some kicks, but Miz ignores them. Santino with an arm drag into a cover for 1. A front faced lock rolled into another pin for 1. Both men are up. We are notified that Brock has been escorted out of the building. Miz with a high knee and a pin for two. Miz looks for a suplex, but Santino floats over, hits the ropes and fires back with a shoulder block and a pin for 1. Santino runs and miz kicks off the ropes then hits Santino dead in the face and covers for 1...2...NO. Miz hits some boots in the corne then sends Santino flying. Santino runs back and rolls up Miz for 1...2..NO! Miz hits a faceplant then pins for 1...2...NO! Miz flies in the corner with a running clothesline, takes some time to gloat, then goes up top. He flies off the top rope with an axe handle and a pin for 1...2...NO!!! Miz with some rights then another pin. 1...2...NO! Miz with the cravat from behind. Santino is able to stand and hit a Saito suplex. Both men are up and Miz runs, but Santino lifts up and send Miz to the top of the ropes. Santino with some punches, Maiz runs, Santino with the splits, hip toss, headbutt! He calls for the Cobra. He is about to hit it, but Miz ducks and gets a roll up on Santino for 1...2...REVERSED by Santino for 1....2...NO!!! Miz from out of nowhere with the Skull Crushing Finale! 1...2....3!!
Winner: The Miz (**1/2)
TIME TO BEAT: 4:18
I like the fast paced matches, but this kind of defies last night's happenings. I'd say they're trying to push The Miz again, but considering there's four more Beat the Clock matches, it's highly unlikely.
We're back, and the Bella Twins are in the middle of the ring looking very lucious! They're going to a part of a Triple Threat, it appears, between them two and the lovely and returning Layla!

Match 2: Nikki Bella vs. Brie Bella vs. Layla
The Bellas are arging a bit so Layla takes the opportunity to dropkick the twins, sending one to the outside, and... (Continues on next page)
