Now on to the show.
The intro rolls, and we are all ready for Monday Night Raw!
To open the show, Vince McMahon comes out with Kassius Ohno. They both get in the ring and grab a mic.
Vince: Last week, Seth went against me and succeeded, as he won the first match again Kassius. However Seth, you won the battle, but we will win the war. I am the boss and nobody disrespects me. I don't care what you have done in your career on the independent scene, because in my eyes, your nothing more than an overrated punk who fails when given an opportunity. So h---
Seth's music hits and he comes out with a microphone.
Seth: Excuse me? You are calling me overrated? I am the best wrestler to ever step foot in a WWE ring. You should be bowing down and begging me to stay here! Vinnie, your arrogance is blinding you. I am Seth Rollins. I am the future of this company. And after I win tonight, I demand I get the respect I deserve from you and the rest of the locker room.
Kassius: Listen, last week was nothing more than a fluke. I will defeat you here tonight and once again next week. You can talk about your great reputation, but I also made a name for myself on the independent scene. You see, you and I are a lot a like. The only difference is that you are a whiny bi*ch while I'm simply the best. And after I beat you in this best of 3 series, I will do what you failed to do, and walk out of Backlash as the World Heavy Weight Champion!
Seth: Let's be honest Kassius. I have already won the Royal Rumble and competed in World Title matches on multiple occasion. You have been here for a few weeks and now you suddenly think your the best because you know how to kiss the boss' ass. Let me be the first to tell you, n---
Randy Orton joins the discussion as he comes down to the ring with microphone.
Randy: This little argument you two are having is a complete joke. Both of you come out here and speak of being the best. However, I'm holding something both of you can only dream of. I'm World Champion! Nobody can touch me and at WrestleMania, I dismantled you Seth. I've already beaten you twice, and I don't mind handing either of you another loss via RKO!
Both Kassius and Seth look at each other before making their move. They jump at Randy and pummel him. Seth nails Avada Kadavra, before Kassius pulls Orton to his feet and connects with the Hero's Welcome. Rollins gets on the turnbuckle to celebrate, but is hit with a low blow by Kassius. Ohno then grabs Rollins and throws his hard to the mat. Seth tries getting up, but Ohno hits another Hero's Welcome. Vince smiles as Kassius stands over his two dismantled rivals.

Promo #1: Layla Backstage

Matt: Layla, after everything you have done for Drew, he managed to turn on you last week and reunite with his ex-wife Tiffany. What are your thoughts after such a devastating betrayal?
Layla: Matt, there was a reason the two didn't last together. They both are ignorant and inconsiderate and they won't make it more than just a few months.
Matt: I understand that you and Tiffany have never been the best of friends. Has Drew been the reason behind you rivalry or is something deeper than that?
Layla: The real reason I don't like Tiffany is because she is nothing more than a dirty sk**nk. She doesn't have what it takes to make here, so she is feeding off of Drew's talent.
Matt: I'm very sorry about what conspired last week and hope you the best.
Layla: What happened last week was a blessing in disguise. Without Drew, I can no focus on my career and go after the Divas Title. However, first I'm going to deal with Tiffany.

Will: David, you are a foolish man. You see, if I were you I wouldn't have even shown up tonight. Do you realize who you are facing tonight? You are going up against the most dominant wrestler in the WWE, Mason Ryan! He will destroy you the same way he dismantled RVD and once again prove why together, Mason and I are unstoppable. As for Drew McIntyre, you should stop worrying about your little love triangle and start paying attention to the man gunning for your belt, Mason Ryan. He will expose you for what you really are: A disgrace to all of Europe!
Will gives some advice to Mason before climbing out of the ring. The referee calls for the bell and the match is underway!

Justin picks up his mic and starts to talk but Vince interrupts him yet again.

Promo #3: Alex Riley in the Ring
Alex Riley comes out to the usual heat and gets in the ring.
Alex: Not to long ago, I told you people that I was finished being the good guy. I was a changed man for the better and wouldn't lose another match until I'm WWE Champ. However, I lost again that night and haven't won a match since. I am sick and tired of losing and I refuse to take it any more. I vow to end my losing streak and win my first WWE Championship. Not to long ago, I defeated former WWE Champion, the Miz. However, I have fallen into obscurity and have become an embarrassment. Starting tonight, Alex Riley will rise up and become the face of Monday Night Raw. H--
Shelton Benjamin interrupts him and comes out with a mic.
Shelton: Alex, when will you ever learn? You can come out here and make excuses, but let me be the first to tell you, nobody cares what you have to say! You can make excuses and blame these people, but in the end, it's simple: You aren't good! The only time you were relevant is when you were the Miz's b*tch
Alex: Excuse me? I'm not good? Ha! If my memory doesn't fail me, you haven't done so good as of late tiger. You see, there is a reason Layla left you for Drew. McIntyre is a born winner, and a real champion, much like myself. You on the other hand, are a waste of space and don't deserve a spot on this roster. You don't even deserve to be in the same ring as me.
Shelton looks like he is about to say something, but instead drops his mic and connects with a super kick. Riey hits the canvas immediately. Shelton taunts Alex before heading to the locker room after a brief confrontation.

Understanding that she won't make it to the ropes in time, Kaitlin uses all of her strength to turn over and kick her way out of the lock.

Promo #4: Tiffany Backstage
Backstage,Matt Striker is with Tiffany.
Matt: Tiffany, after a rocky end to your relation, it seems as though you and Drew are back together. What do you think will be different this time?
Tiffany: In all honesty, I have doubts that we can make it together. As of now, the answer is no, we aren't a couple. I'm not ready for a relationship, especially with a man who already left me heartbroken once.
Matt: It seemed as everything was perfect last week? Has something happened to change your perception of him?
Tiffany: Well, I still do love Drew. I just don't think I'm ready to take the next step. In reality, the main reason I want to be with Drew is to hurt that little b**ch, Layla. She doesn't deserve a man like Drew and that is the exact reason she was betrayed. Drew was just using her to win the U.S. Title and he succeeded. Now, he's moved on to bigger and better things, which is why he wants me.
Matt: Do you think your rivalry with Layla is over?
Tiffany: Our rivalry won't end until I taker her out once and for all. She is jealous of what Drew and I have, and will try to destroy our relationship. However, if she comes anywhere near my man, I will leave her lying where she stands.
Matt: Understood. Thanks for your time.
Tiffany: My pleasure Matthew.

Abe helps Mark to his feet and Henry quickly hits Smith with the World's Strongest Slam. Washington then grabs a mic.
Abe: Earlier tonight, Alex Riley explained why he's deserving of a shot from Vince McMahon. However, I can't remember the last time Riley even came close to winning a match. On the other hand, Mark and I have dominated the competition for weeks now and deserve a shot at the tag titles. However, instead the two men lying unconscious next to us get the shot instead. So now, Mark and I aren't playing by the rules anymore. We will do what we want, when we want, simply because we can!
