RAW this week starts with a video from Bragging Rights. They went through the 7 On 7 Match, all was well until Big Show choke slammed Kofi. Big Show then attacked HHH and left. Jericho got the pin on Kofi for the win. The SD! Team celebrated with their trophy.
Music and pyro.
Jeri-Show’s music and out they came – both in blue, Jericho in a sleeveless SD! shirt – Jericho with the trophy high above his head and Big Show with a huge smile. Picture for the two NASCAR boys who will be hosting tonight. Huge heat for Jeri-Show. Big Show says despite what happened last night, he’s still a proud member of the RAW roster. Everything he did was because…. Jericho says he doesn’t have to explain himself to these germ incubators. Big Show did it because of his loyalty to Jericho and their team supersedes his loyalty to RAW and all these solipsistic amoebas here tonight. Big Show says there’s something he needs to tell him. Jericho stops Big Show and tells him for stopping the tyranny of DX. There’s no mirth or jocularity coming from the DX camp tonight. No hawking of cheap merchandise or juvenile pranks because they’re embarrassed by what Big Show stood up for what’s right. He punched HHH right in his face. For that he helped SD! Win Bragging Rights. Big Show says Jericho should let him talk. Jericho said SD! Would have won anyway because he’s the captain, the mastermind, the genius… Yes, he said genius, that put together everything. He’s on both shows, he knows what goes on… Big Show tells Jericho he needs to understand something. What he did at BR was for him. There’s one thing that more important that this show and their team, it’s his career. He can be on both shows. He hunted down Teddy Long and struck a deal. Because Big Show won BR for SD!, he’s the next to face Taker for the Championship. Jericho’s jaw is on his chest. Jericho said Big Show didn’t approve this with him. Big Show says he has to approve things with him? He has to approve what he has for breakfast? Jericho says yes, he needs the low calorie food! Big Show says he like to have… NASCAR sounds cut them off and the camera goes outside and the cars are going in circles in the parking lot. They come right into the arena – 18 and then 20. The boys climb out of their cars. A Bella Twin joins each of them in jumpsuits matching each of them – not overtly sexy. Kyle Busch and Joey Legano into the ring. Kyle says they’re both WWE fans an thrilled to be hosting RAW. He does think the fans like what happened. But he’s a man’s man and with him. So, a lot goes one and everything happens, but everything happens for a reason. He congratulates Big Show and shakes his hand. Joey, on the other hand, says he can’t shake Big Show’s hand. Big Show left his team hanging and that’s not impressive, it’s weak. Big Show asks that what he said is weak. Big Show tells Kyle to teach his friend some respect. Kyle said Joey’s young and dumb. Joey hit Kyle’s shoulder with the mic. Kyle said Joey doesn’t know much about championships. They’re here for is to win a championship. They’re there to host RAW and make this show possible. They’re in Buffalo – cheap pop – a city that hasn’t made it to the playoffs since Hulk-A-Mania. That got him some serious heat! Kyle says they brought T.O. (Terrell Owens) in and what has he done? Even more heat. Next thing you know, we’ll be singing Oh Canada. Jericho quietly says, “There’s nothing wrong with that.” Joey says that’s why as co-host tonight, he gets to make the matches. So it will be Big Show against the guy he sucker punched – HHH. The fans love Joey! Jericho tells Big Show it’s tough and good luck. Then Jericho brings the trophy to them and said he’d take them back to their office and explain how he single handedly won it at BR. Kyle said he’s seen 58 of them. Joey’s not the only one who can make matches. On his way of doing burnouts and driving his racecar in, he thought about it and he’s putting Jericho against Kofi Johnts…. Kingston (blunder, but caught himself!) Jericho wasn’t thrilled and asked Kofi Kingston? To make sure the name was said correctly. Kofi comes out. The tron above him still shows much Jamaica mon.

Ted says he was robbed. Cody says they want to show their support with a gift. A token of support for everything he’s ever done for them. They uncover the number 18 car with Orton painted on the hood. They ask Orton what he thinks. Orton says it’s incredible. He asks is they bought this for him?

Cody says they have another surprise involving Cena. Ted says it’s only a matter of time until the title comes back to Legacy. They leave and Orton is enthralled with himself on the car. He’s in awe.

Backstage paparazzi snapping pics of Melina and Santino as they walk are in arm, as they head for the ring. Santino’s really sucking it up.

Cena backstage heading for the ring.
Stills from last night’s match between Orton and Cena.
Justin Roberts announces Cena, but Legacy’s music plays and cuts him off. Legacy comes out looking very proud of themselves. They both have mics as they get in the ring. Cody says the Champ is not here. This would be the perfect time for him to parade out here and tell everyone about his… “What did you cal it Cole?” His epic victory. Well, that will have to wait because the Legacy is here. Ted says just because Orton can’t face Cena for the title, doesn’t mean they can’t. So, at SS they’ll bring the title back to Legacy where it belongs. They didn’t ask the guest hosts for permission because they’re challenging them now. Why doesn’t Cena come out and face him, or Cody, or both in a handicap match, if he has the guts. Out comes Cena to the ring. Women and children chant for Cena. Cena says he doesn’t have to brag about last night. It was what it needed to be. It was the best in the WWE fighting in the final showdown. He can even speak for their mentor when he says they were exhausted – physically and mentally. Heck, he was almost blown up, he dodged an explosion. People ask why would they do something like that? In a weird way they did it for us (Cena and Orton), for the title, the fans and most importantly they did it because the rivalry needed to end and it did. That brings us to Monday Night RAW, the night after the shoot out at the OK Corral. Everyone tunes in to see the next challenger, who will be next? Everyone tunes in to see Cena in the ring with Orton’s Legacy? Huh. Cody says they’re not Orton. Cena says he’s right, neither are Orton, they have a lot to learn. People will think that RAW’s gone into reruns! What’s it been, twelve years? Enough! He’s going to hit them with truth. He beat Orton and earned the right to say no more! You two can make all the empty challenges they want. They can say they’re bringing the championship back to Legacy. But if they want a shot at the championship… A contingent of men started to loudly chant, “Cena sucks!” They have to lace up their boots, put on their tights and get and line and work for it like everyone else because that’s how it works around here. But at he looks at the two of them, they haven’t earned it. They haven’t earned it. Cena might be out of his mind. He asked the fans if ‘the baby oil boys club’ earned anything? The fans loudly said they didn’t. Cena said he was just making sure. As they come out and tell everyone how holier than thou they are. Well, Cena’s a huge NASCAR fan and he’s been in the back with Kyle Busch and Joey Legano talking about them possibly having a match tonight. It will happen now. They have to give a large, strong hello to their opponents tonight. Out comes MVP and Mark Henry in too much red.
Ted on MVP. Cody tags in and they double team him. Punches to MVP’s head. Chin and arm lock on MVP. Backstage Kyle and Joey watch the screen. MVP reverses a move into a clothesline. MVP tags out. Clothesline, back elbow and a head butt on Cody. Henry gets Cody up high by his throat. For some reason MVP argues with the ref which gives Ted the time to run in and chop block Henry to the mat. Cody on top of Henry. The ref starts counting but Henry pushes out. Ted tags in and works over Henry. Cody tags and they double team Henry. Choking Henry in the heel corner. Ted tags in and more double teaming – stomps and kicks. And another tag and Cody’s in. more double teaming of Henry. Cody tries to keep Henry from his corner and somehow manages it. MVP in without a tag and the ref stops him. Legacy use this to double dropkick Henry to the mat. Cody keeps working on Henry who throws him off, but Cody right back on him to keep Henry from MVP. Back body drop on Cody and Henry makes it to MVP. Ted also tags in. MVP works over Ted and hits ballin’ on Ted. Cody breaks the pin. Henry in and head butts Cody. Ted attacks MVP, but he comes back and tries to take Ted down. A little help from Henry while the ref tries to get Cody out of the ring and Ted’s down. The ref finally sees it and MVP gets the three.
– Winners: Cool Aid Gang
Legacy freaks out on the ref while MVP and Henry leave. Orton’s music plays and he comes stalking out to the ring looking rather pissed. Cole talks about how there’s something seriously wrong with Orton. They then go over the stipulations that Orton made for the BR match and how it’s Orton’s fault he can’t face for the title again. In the ring Orton says apparently the guest hosts are trying to find the next opponent for Cena. It officially looks like his next opponent won’t be Orton. He understand the terms of his match last night. But he doesn’t care! He’s a former Champion and deserves a rematch. He doesn’t care if he has to take it all the way to the Board Of Directors, he will to get back what’s his. That WWE Title is his! He won’t stop… Orton’s cut off by Kofi on the tron. Kofi tells him he lost and no one cares what he has to say. Orton demands to know who he thinks he is! He tells Kofi to come to the ring and say that to his face. He dares him to say it to his face. Kofi says that’s an interesting choice of words because he’s already doing that right now. The camera pans down to show that Kofi’s standing on the hood of the car straddling Orton’s face, right between his feet! The fans love it! Orton tells him not to touch his car. Get off his car, don’t do anything to his car, he’ll make his car living hell. Kofi gets off the car and says what he loves about these NASCARS is that they’re so durable. Kofi slaps the car a couple times as he talks. He wants to show what he’s talking about. He rams one of those rolling anvil case into the side of the car. Kofi says there’s not even a scratch and it has to be like 300lbs, right? Ironically enough it’s the things that are so small that do the most damage. Like a key. Kofi takes out a key and rips the hell out of the car with it. Then Kofi asks if that’s a bug on his hood? Kofi beats the heck out of Orton’s face on the car with a crowbar. Kofi said he screwed up his paintjob and wants to make it right. On the top of the car with a bucket Kofi dumps bright orange paint all over Orton’s face. Kofi says Orton’s never looked better. To punctuate the last word he slammed the bucket down on where Orton’s face was. Paint splattered all up in Kofi’s face at that.
Buffalo Bills in the front row getting rowdy for the camera.
Video of Kofi keying Orton’s car. Then the crowbar on the bug on the hood/Orton’s face. Then, of course, the bucket of paint. Orton looked pained.

Miz clotheslines Evan in a corner close to Swagger and shakes the ropes enough to get Swagger’s attention. Swagger glares up at Miz. Miz leaves the ring and gets right in Swagger’s face. Swagger drops the mic. They both talk smack. The ref started counting Miz out. At five Evan flew over the top and took them both out! The ref kept counting. Just after ten Miz dove for the ring.
