Chris welcomes everyone to Raw is Jericho. Chris gives us a cheap pop for Des Moines. He says that this is a holiday for hard working men and women like yourself. His guest is someone who has never worked a day in his life. He has been given everything in the WWE on a silver platter.
Chris brings out Randy Orton, but instead of Randy, it is Triple H and he is joined by Seth Rollins, Kane, and Randy Orton and they are dressed like they are in an attorney commercial on ROH TV. Chris says that he expected to see Randy come out tonight by himself and not with his law firm of Suck Up, Sell Out, and Schnozz.
Hunter tells Chris that he has never grown up, physically or literally. Hunter tells Chris that he has important business. Chris says Hunter does not conduct important business in the ring unless his wife is being thrown in jail. Hunter says that Chris should be thanking him instead of coming up with witty banter. Hunter comments on Chris’ scarf and Chris comments on Hunter’s pink tie. Hunter says that it is violet.
Hunter says that this is the most historic Highlight Reel in history. Hunter says that he reviewed the match at SummerSlam between John Cena and Brock Lesnar as well as the commentary about it. Hunter says that you can watch it on the WWE Network for $9.99. Hunter says that it might not be best for business to have a rematch between Cena and Lesnar. Hunter says that he is contemplating a new number one contender.
Chris says that even though he is giving Cena his mandatory rematch, who will Hunter give the match to? Randy says that there is only one person who can beat Brock Lesnar. He is a twelve time World Champion, a third generation wrestler, and someone who earned everything.
Kane suggests that it should be a masked man who can raise a demon to face the Beast Incarnate. Seth says that maybe the future has already arrived in Mr. Money in the Bank himself. He did take out Dean Ambrose and he has become one of the most intelligent and most dangerous Superstars in the locker room.
Chris suggests that you give the shot to a six time champion and the first Undisputed Champion in the business.
John Cena’s music interrupts Chris’ catchphrases and John is serious. John wants to know what the hell Hunter is talking about. Just because Flair and Shawn don’t think he can win doesn’t mean that he won’t. Those same two guys didn’t think he could beat Hunter at Wrestlemania 22, but Hunter tapped out. John tells Hunter he can watch it if he forgot. Hunter is running the company and he does not care how many times Hunter has seen the footage, John has invoked the rematch clause and Hunter has authorized it. John says that if he takes it away, he will sue Hunter and take all of his money. Then he will be in control and the first thing he will do is tell Hunter he is fired. John says the rematch is happening. He will not just beat Brock Lesnar, he will beat Brock’s ass. Hunter says wow. Is John going to sue? Now John is so desperate that he is threatening lawsuits? Maybe John is small minded like everyone else. He knows what his damn job is. He knows what being COO is. No matter what, he does what is best for business for the WWE every single day.
Hunter tells John that he is the first to admit that John as the WWE Champion is not what is best for business. John’s career ending at the hands of Brock Lesnar is not what is best for business. Seth says let him have the rematch. What is the worst that can happen? If an opportunity presents itself, there is always Plan B. Randy says Seth is right. Give him the rematch. Let me face the winner. Randy wants to know where his rematch is.
Chris says that this is still the Highlight Reel. Chris says that Randy has had 4,000 title matches since Wrestlemania and he has never succeeded. The last big match that Randy had, he was Superman punched and speared by Roman Reigns. Randy says that meant nothing. Roman means nothing and if Roman was here, he would drop him like the piece of crap he is. Randy says that if Chris wants to make a joke of him, he will not like the punchline.
Roman Reigns’ music finally plays and he makes his way to the ring.
Roman tells Randy that he is here, so drop him. Just like he thought, Randy is all talk. Roman asks Kane and Seth if they are angry about breaking up the eulogy or maybe they are pissed about almost being destroyed by a cinder block. Roman says that he should be in the mix. Hunter says that everyone seems like they can take on Brock Cena at Night of Champions. Everyone in the ring gets an opportunity to prove themselves. They will get a chance to stand tall. We will have a six man tag match. Chris Jericho, John Cena, and Roman Reigns will face Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, and Kane. Who can earn their spot? Who can prove it? Hunter says that he will be sitting at ringside and he will be watching.
