WWE RAW Opener:
RAW opened up with a video package highlighting last nights Elimination Chamber Match at New Years Revolution, which saw John Cena walk out on top, retaining his WWE Championship. Edge then shocked the world by cashing in on his Money in the Bank contract, and defeated a bloody and battered Cena to become the WWE Champion! The fireworks then went off in the arena for the start of RAW as Joey Styles, Jerry Lawler and the Coach welcomed us to the show!
In the arena:
The music of John Cena hit in the arena as he made his way to the ring to a mixed reaction from the crowd, and he looks fired up here tonight on RAW! Cena grabbed a microphone and asked the crowd if they can’t get any louder than that, and if they are gonna go at it, then go at it! Cena got his usual mixed reaction and said that he thinks that life is full of choices. Last night, Edge had a very opportunistic time and cashed in his Money in the Bank, and beat him for the WWE Championship. He said just like tonight the people are making choices, and some people have decided that he sucks. The crowd reaction was mixed once again as Cena said some folks made a choice to ride with him. Some of the crowd popped as he said through the good times and the bad times, not just because it was the cool thing to do. Allen Iverson once said, there’s a million people who love him, then there’s 10 million that hate him. So what does he do? He goes to bat for each and every one of the those soldiers that ride with him, and for the 10 million drinking hatorade, they can kiss his ass! He said tonight, he’s making a choice. Tonight, he is making a choice to cash in on his rematch clause, and tonight he wants him some of Edge right here and right now for the WWE Championship! The music of Edge then hit as Lita made her way to the stage carrying the WWE Championship belt! There was no sign of Edge and Lita has a mic. She said if Cena wants another chance to be champion, then he’s luck, but just not tonight.
Lita said the new WWE Champion, Edge, well he sees things a little bit differently. Edge thought it would be a good idea if she talked to Mr. McMahon and after some oral persuasion he agreed that the rematch clause cannot be revoked until the Royal Rumble! She asked Cena if he had been online today yet, because Edge isn’t going to be doing any fighting tonight, but something else starting with the letter F. The only wrestling he’ll be doing is with her, in the middle of the ring. They are going to walk down there, take off their clothes and get in bed. And unlike Cena last night, Edge will last longer than two minutes. She said it will be her and Edge, and the WWE Title. She said unlike all the people in the building, Edge knows what to do in bed, and unlike Cena, Edge knows what to do in the ring, and that’s why he will beat Cena at the Royal Rumble, and you can bank on that! She said tonight, Edge will do what none of these boys in the building can get done, and that’s get laid. If you can’t see that, then you can’t see me! Cena called her a one woman hooker parade and there may be a lot of people in here that thinks he sucks, but everyone knows she does! He told Lita to tell Edge that he did make a wise choice cashing in last night, and he left Cena with no choice. He said at the Royal Rumble when he meets Edge, he will beat his ass! Cena said she can bank on that, bitch!
Tonight, Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels will take on Carlito and Chris Masters and the Women’s Title will be on the line between Trish Stratus and Ashley, and that is next!
Women’s Championship Match
Back on RAW, and Mickie James is in the ring as the music of the Women’s Champion, Trish Stratus hit. Mickie got on the mic and said that is not the type of ovation you give the Women’s Champion and told Trish to back up the aisle and to give it up for the greatest Women’s Champion of all time! Ashley then made her way to the ring as the opponent for Trish tonight!
Trish and Ashley went to lock up but Mickie got in the ring and Trish asked what she was doing. Mickie got out of the ring as Trish and Ashley locked up. Ashley grabbed a hammerlock but Trish reversed. Ashley reversed again and then grabbed a side headlock, and then a hammerlock again. Trish hit a fireman’s carry for two before they tied up again. Trish grabbed a side headlock and took Ashley down to the mat and Ashley countered with a headscissors. Trish took Ashley down with a headlock again before going for a headscissors out of the corner, but Ashley blocked and dropped Trish on her face and made a cover but Mickie then hit the ring and went to work on Ashley, like a crazy woman!
Winner by disqualification, Ashley, but still Women’s Champion, Trish Stratus
Trish kept pulling Mickie off of Ashley and looked pissed at what Mickie has done here. Trish kept asking why and blocking Mickie. Ashley made her way to the back as the winner by disqualification and Trish looked concerned for her and left Mickie in the ring.
Rob Van Dam:
Back on RAW and we get a video package for Rob Van Dam! He’ll be back in the Royal Rumble Match!
John Cena is backstage and Mr. McMahon comes in. McMahon congratulates him on winning the Elimination Chamber match. Vince said that was perfect Edge last night, but he has his rematch at the Royal Rumble. McMahon said there is another first time here tonight, they are having this live sex celebration, and it’s the first time we’ve had anything like that, and he wants to make sure no one interferes with that. Cena said he’s got two people having sex in the middle of the ring, and he’s going to enjoy it like everyone else. McMahon said if Cena interferes for any reason, the rematch at the Royal Rumble will not happen. Cena said between you and me, you may went to check the arena because there are some tracks left from the oral persuasion!
Masters is shown and he grabs Carlito against the wall and he’s pissed after Carlito turned on him last night in the Elimination Chamber! Masters asked if he could count on Carlito tonight, and if he can’t, he’s going to put him in the Master Lock, and that’s cool. Carlito said it was an accident was we went to commercial.
