We open the show with Ric Flair, The Big Show, Christian and Shawn Michaels.
Michaels welcomes us to RAW and brings out Drew McIntyre. Drew says it’s pretty cool being in the ring with these legends. He talks growing up with The Big Show and Christian and how they helped him perform in the ring, and got them through tough times. He calls Shawn Michaels a mentor and he remembers Flair being on the active roster the year Drew came to America.
He recaps last night and Shawn says he wanted to thank Drew for last night. He also wanted to help even the odds against him against Orton. He then says if he’s upset that they interfered, it was Flair’s idea. Drew says he’s not mad because he already proved he could beat Orton and he hopes that people start beating him up on the street.
Orton appears on the titantron, and he says he hopes Drew is enjoying his title reign because it won’t last. He says that he doesn’t know what hell is like and this won’t be over until he’s WWE Champion.
Drew wonders if Orton is begging for another title match and Orton says he doesn’t have to beg for anything because he’s a 13 time champion and will get what he wants when he wants it. And he reminds everyone that there is a price to be paid when you cross the Legend Killer. He then takes his luggage and leaves.
Drew says that’s a shame, but says he’s trying to cement his legacy and is thinking about the kind of champion he wants to be. He decides he wants to put his title on the line against anyone who hasn’t faced him for the title yet. Who will step up and make a name for themselves? He’ll be waiting.
