This week’s show starts off with a look back at last week’s attack by Christian on Randy Orton after Orton’s successful title defense against Sheamus. What is going to happen this week between Orton and Christian? What about Sheamus? What about Mark Henry? Who will get the title match at Capitol Punishment?
We are live on tape from Roanoke, Virginia and your announcers are Michael ‘I’m good now . . . just look at my shirt for proof’ Cole, Josh ‘I’ve always been good . . . just check the note from my mom’ Mathews, and Booker ‘I’m undefeated on Raw . . . just watch Monday’s show’ T.
Christian makes his way to the ring and he says that he has to be honest because he was curious about the type of reaction he would get tonight. If people cheered for him, that means that they got it. That means that you understood that he got screwed out of the title, just five days after winning it. It means that you got that he was screwed out of the number one contender spot two weeks ago. That means you got that he was justified in doing what he did to Randy Orton last week on Smackdown.
Christian says that as he looks around the audience tonight and looks at their faces, he is convinced that most of the people don’t quite get it. That is why Christian wanted to tell everyone that he is through with them. He is through with his ‘so called’ Peeps. Christian says that he does not want to talk to them any more. Christian says that he doesn’t know if he ever wants to talk to any of you again.
Christian says that there is one person that he will talk about tonight. That person is sitting at the announce table. Christian wants Michael Cole to come into the ring so they could talk.
Cole makes his way to the ring and he asks Cole for one more match for the World Title. He feels that he earned it and he deserves it. Christian says that he has a lot of things to get off his chest. He does not understand why the same people who cheered him and supported him all these years, the Peeps, cheered so loudly when he won the title. The people who blew up Twitter with anger that he lost the title after only five days. Those same people were disgusted with him when he hit Randy Orton with the title belt.
Christian wants to know what kind of show Teddy Long is running by polling the crowd to make decisions. Christian decides to give Cole a ‘real world’ example with ‘Bob in Accounting’. Does Bob’s boss base a promotion on merit and what they have earned or does his boss go to the street and ask a bunch of clueless and worthless people their opinion on things?
Christian says that is what Teddy Long is doing. Christian says that these people had no right to try to control his life. Christian says that these people had no right ruining something that Christian fought for so hard in his seventeen year career. Christian tells Cole that it is disrespectful and he has never been so disrespected in his life. There is one person who stands out in that group of disrespectful people is Randy Orton.
He says that if Randy Orton is a man, there is no way that he would have accepted that title match knowing that Christian had competed in a grueling ladder match five days earlier. Christian tells Cole that he needs him to help him and do him a solid. Since Christian is not talking to them, he wants Cole to ask everyone if they think that Christian deserves to be the World Heavyweight Champion.
Cole asks everyone if they think Christian deserves to be the World Champion.
Christian says that was just what he expected. He saw that everyone is completely and utterly clueless. Christian says that he will be the World Champion again and when that happens, he will be doing it for himself because he won’t be sharing with any of them.
Christian thanks Cole for a good talk before leaving the ring. We go to commercial.
