WWE Champion Drew McIntyre makes his way to the ring to start this week's episode of Monday Night RAW!

Dolph says Raw got the better deal and he says that he is happy to see Drew with the title. He wanted to make sure Drew had the title until he got his chance.

Dolph asks Drew if he forgot the Drew McIntyre redemption story. You were fired years ago and you would have been done if it wasn't for Dolph Ziggler. Dolph says he picked Drew up and brought him to Raw. You are on Raw because of him. They became dominant tag team champions because of him. Now, you are the dominant WWE Champion... because of me. Dolph says he knows that you need a challenger for Extreme Rules. All he asks in return is what he is owed.

Drew says in your mind, you are responsible for all of Drew's success. That is some nice revisionist history. Since we split apart, it hasn't been smooth sailing. Without Big Daddy Claymore watching your back, you lost a lot. Drew tells Dolph to look at him when he talks to him. You aren't untalented, but you have become what we used to despise. You have become and entitled jackasss. Drew says he needs an opponent for Extreme Rules. You callled me the Scottish Pyschopath. Imagine what I can do with this title on the line. How far will I go to keep this title. Do you want this match.

Drew says it's official. Dolph wants the match. It will be Drew McIntyre versus Dolph Ziggler for the WWE Championship.

Seth Rollins is still standing in the back and he says sometimes in life, we are destined for roles beyond our choices. I did not choose to be the Monday Night Messiah, just as Rey did not choose to be a sacrifice. The difference between you and I is that I have embraced by role in the greater good, while you have been defiant and defiance breeds suffering. The saddest part of all of this is that you have allowed your son to get involved in this situation. I want you to know that whatever becomes of you or your son, from this point forward is on you. It is guilt on you. The greater good is coming to us all and there is nothing to stop it. I have heard it said that legends never die, but they sure as hell can outlive their welcome.

In the Arena:

Edge is in a ring on the back and he says you won at Backlash, but you didn't live up to your claim of being a better natural wrestler. You hit me with an RKO and tore my tricep off the bone. I kept fighting. You will say that you kept me around to prove a point, but that is bulls***. I saw it in your eyes when I was about to hit you with the anti-venom. Then you hit me with a coincidental low blow. I watched Raw last week and saw Randy call himself the greatest wrestler because he won the greatest wrestling match. Yell it from the mountaintop and put it on whatever you want.

I expect to beat you. Edge says he is disappointed he didn't see the low blow coming and he is disappointed he didn't do it first. That isn't going to happen again. You said I lit a fire your gut and I reminded you that you are the Legend Killer. This match and this injury. Not being able to pick up my daughters on Father's Day. It showed me that I needed to open a side of me that has been dormant for years. When you backed Jay into a corner and questioned his manhood and challenged him to a match when he was not medically cleared.

We have been friends for 36 years. He has walked through every trial and tribulation in his life. When you did that, you attacked a man who was excited to be back doing what he loved to do. Edge says he is thankful. Edge says he will sink to any level to get what he wants. He does not care how many backs he bruises to get to the top. He does not care about winning a match now. He says he will embarrass and emasculate you. You are going to wish that Cowboy Bob was firing blanks on the night you were conceived.

Your children will ask you if you are okay. You and your wife won't be able to look each other in the eyes because you know it will be coming. Edge says his voice is going to be added to the chorus in your head. I will make sure that every aspect of your life is destroyed. He will destroy it from the inside. You have no idea what you have done. You have woken up the evil. You woke up the Rated R Superstar. Get some sleep while you can Randy.


Randy Orton is approached by Charly Caruso. Randy asks Charly if she knows what a snake does when it is threatened. It will bite and it will strike wildly and blindly.

Randy says he will do what he has to do to defend his family and his livelihood. He will do what he has to do to survive. That is mother nature. Randy says he hopes Edge and Christian have full recoveries and they live long and full lives. As long as they do it far far far far away from him.

- Ric Flair makes his way to the ring as we go to commercial.

In the Arena:

Ric Flair is in the ring and he says his daughter was injured. When she comes back, Nia Jax you are going to wish you live in another environment. You are going to be in a lot of trouble.

Ric turns his attention to Randy Orton. Ric says people ask him who is the greatest performer in the business today. It is not arguable. Everyone wants to be the best but only one can be. Today it is Randy Orton. Last week, in a 24 hour period, he took Edge and Christian and punted them into retirement. Randy is the apex predator and he is the greatest. Ric wants to tell him in front of everyone.

Ric says that Randy Orton is the most dominant and most vicious performer in WWE. Ric says that Randy is the greatest performer in the history of the WWE.

Randy thanks Ric for the words. It is nostalgic that they are in the ring together. They are half of Evolution. Sometimes, nostalgia can be confused with legacy. It was nostalgic that you showed that you were the dirtiest player in the game. It was nostalgic that he punted Christian for wanting one more match. It was nostalgic for what he did to Edge. To be called the Legend Killer again, is not nostalgic. It cements his legacy. In two days, he became the greatest wrestler and he euthanized two men in Christian and Edge. Randy says him and the voices in his head are loving hearing him being called the greatest.

Big Show makes his way to the ring and he says that is enough.

Show says he will not let Flair glamorize what Randy did to his friends. You are going to pay for what you did. Show says that Randy has been a narcassistic parasite since day one. Now you are using Ric Flair, a man he once respected. You have latched on to competitors who made you better, like Edge. You lack the self discipline and motivation to be better. You don't care about Edge and Christian or their families. Once you get what you want, you leave the host to die. We know that Edge isn't done and Edge will pay you back for everything that you have done.

Edge won't have the satisfaction of doing it alone. This pissed off Giant is going to break every bone in your body.

Randy says Show is not going to touch a hair on his head because Flair paved the way for him. You are not going to touch a hair on my head because we came up together. Randy says he is impressed with what Show has achieved. You are a future Hall of Famer. Some might say,that you are a legend. Randy says he didn't expect that kicking two of your friends in the head would make you react this way, but it would be a shame for you to end up the same wawy.

Show tells Randy to square up but Orton leaves the ring. He says he gave you a shot. Look at what he has done and you know what he is capable of. Randy says he is focused and motivated. What happens next is on you. Orton and Flair leave as Orton's music plays.

Porter says this feels right having the US Champion in the VIP Lounge. You said that if you weren't a fighting champion, you wouldn't be a champion at all. When you beat me to earn a spot in the Money in the Bank match, it made him respect Apollo. Then you blew out your knee and forfeited your spot in the ladder match.
