Fantasy WWE: Monday Night Raw (6/11)
Hey, Bleacher Report!
This is the posting of this past Monday's episode of Monday Night Raw.
As the name implies, this is "Fantasy Raw." By no means will any of this ever happen—it's just a continuation of the Fantasy WWE Series.
The ratings war started a few weeks back, so please leave a comment with a rating from 1 (hated it) to 10 (loved it). Please give us some feedback. It will only help us.
A brief background: In October 2011, Nate Scaccia and I represented Raw while Kevin Berge and Nate Giese represented Smackdown in the second-ever WWE Fantasy Draft. After a lot of demanding schedules, the shows are now run by Michael Broughton and Will Owen on Raw, while Charl G, Jack McKenzie and George Cushnie control Smackdown. Both shows are putting on great episodes week in, week out and are very interesting.

Editor's Note: (Fantasy WWE went on a two-week hiatus to look at the series and formulate new ideas. We will be catching up this week in time for this Sunday's (June 24th's) Money in the Bank pay-per-view.
This is five weeks after Backlash, which you can view here. We are also only two weeks away from Money in the Bank. What's in store for tonight? Only one way to find out. Let's get to Raw!
Promo: Vince McMahon and David Otunga Are in the Ring
Vince McMahon comes out to start the show, and he is flanked by his new stable, The Federation. They climbs into the ring as Vinnie and David Otunga each grab a mic as the crowd pummels them with boos.
David: Shut up right now! The PERMANENT Raw General Manager is about to speak! So sit down, and give him the respect that he deserves.
Vince: Thank you David. Now the reason I'm out here isn't because of you blubbering idiots in the stands. I am out here to address each and every member of the Federation. While all of you are proven competitors, I only accept greatness. So tonight, each one of you will participate in a match to prove that you belong in the greatest stable in the history of the WWE!
Kassius takes Otunga's mic and begins to speak.
Kassius: Listen, I understand that some of these guys need to prove themselves, but others have already shown their value.
Vince: You know what, you are right. So the two members of the group that won't be competing tonight are Kharma and Brock Lesner.
Kassius: What! I was talking about myself! What led you to believe I was thinking of Lesnar and Kharma?
Vince: Well, Lesner is multi-time WWE Champion. What exactly have you done?
Kassius: But I ha---
Vince: No ifs or buts! there are no excuses when it comes to these stable. I have already given you multiple opportunities, and I admit that some weren't even deserved. You have embarrassed before, but if you lose tonight, there are no more chances. And by the way, your match will be up next!
Kassius: What! I'm not ready for a match! I'm wearing a t-shirt and jeans!
Vince: And one more thing, if you lose this match, you're out of the Federation. Anybody from the locker room can come out and take on Kassius. Come on!
Kassius' angry expression turns to fear as he realizes his opportunity to make an impact has quickly slipped away! The rest of the group leaves the ring as Kassius is left out to seemingly dry.

Promo: Wade Barrett Comes Down to the Ring
Wade Barrett comes down to the ring with a mic, receiving the usual heat.
Wade: Do you people think I'm stupid? I have heard the rumors, what people think I have said. Do you honestly think I'm scared of Rey Mysterio? I've had meals bigger than the guy. I have already explained my reasoning for not competing, but you idiots have the memories of a senile old man, and you don't remember a damn thing. I am st--
Rey's music hits and he comes out with a mic.
Rey: Let's face it Wade. There is only one reason behind you not fighting me: You are nothing more than a petty coward. There isn't anything holding you back from facing me other than pure fear.
Wade: Please! Your attempts to intimidate me are laughable. Scared? Cowardly? Fear? Really? I have already told you th--
Rey: Yes we know what you have told us. You are trying to say there are other reasons. Well, if you want me to shut up, then just blurt out what it is. Just give in and tell us your "issue".
Wade: Please. There isn't a person in this entire arena that deserves to know the real reason I won't compete.
Rey: Fine. If you refuse to tell me the truth, I will beat you down until you finally spit it out.
Mysterio charges the ring, but Wade escapes through the crowd.

Backstage, Drew is with Todd Grisham.
Todd: Drew, it seems as if Tiffany has our mind set on John Morrison as of late instead of you. Do you think this will become an issue at anytime?
Drew: An issue? John is nothing more then a jealous moron. Sooner or later, Tiff will realize that I am the better man.
Todd: But I must ask. With an issue like this at hand, will your in ring success be compromised?
Drew: Not at all. I am the Chosen One! I don't get distracted. When I step in that ring, I have one goal. To win. Anymore stupid questions?
Todd: Just one. Do you actually think Tiffany will choose you over John?
Drew: Is that even a serious question? Of course she will. She fought and battled her way back into my arms, and I know she doesn't want to mess this up for a second time. John is nothing more than a speed bump on our road to a be----

Todd: Shelton, last week you walked out on Riley. Is this ongoing rivalry ever going to come to a conclusion.
Shelton: This will end when Riley finally gives up. He wants my respect, but I refuse to respect a man that doesn't know when to throw in the towel. When I said I don't respect him, he should have just taken the hit and gone on with his life. Instead he is running in circles.
Todd: You can't lie when I say Riley has been pretty impressive over the past couple of months. His skill hav---
Shelton: Impressive?!?! He has beaten up on nobodies. I am yet to see him face, and cleanly defeat, a skilled competitor.

McMahon's music hits and he comes out with a mic.
Vince: No Mason and Regal, it's not that simple. Gabriel and DiBiase both fought well and that warrants a title shot. So at the 1,000th episode of Raw, the three of you will take each other on in a triple threat Ladder Match!

Seth: Why don't you stop worrying about winning a championship, and start worrying about winning a single match.
Randy: Once I get Sheamus out of my way I wi---
Seth: Vintage Randy Orton! Making more excuses. I'm sick and tired of it. I'm the World Champ, and you aren't. It isn't a flaw, or a mistake, it is a fact: I am simply better than you.

However, Rollins breaks out of it and the two men begin to battle back and forth with punches. Struggling for position, Seth loses his balance and falls down to ringside, dragging Sheamus with him. Both men hit the ground with impact and are down for quite sometime. The Celtic Warrior manages to stand first, lifting Rollins up and tossing him back into the ring.

Seth celebrates momentarily but is cut short as Orton charges into the ring and hits the World Champ with an RKO.
