DARK MATCH: Sheamus (O’Shaunessy) defeated Jamie Noble..
“The New Owner of Monday Night RAW” Donald Trump: Donald Trump welcomed everybody to Monday Night RAW. Trump said he’s always loved RAW and now he owns it, but it was the fans show. Trump said that tonight’s show would be commercial-free. Trump hyped the World championship matches, and explained that Vince NcMahon was a taker and he was a giver. Trump claimed he would give all the fans a full refund of whatever they paid. Jerry Lawler said “only a billionaire can do that.” And Trump proclaimed, “only Trump can do that, enjoy the show!”
IN THE RING
John Cena + Mike “The Miz” Mizanin: John Cena took his hat off to Mr. Trump and then hyped the Last Man Standing match between Triple H and Randy Orton. Cena talked about RAW being commercial free, and also talked about his match with Big Show tonight. Cena said Trump has already made a statement on RAW. Cena said that the Miz has been trying to make a statement by calling him out. Cena turned the tables and called out the Miz this week, but Miz only came out to the stage. The Miz said that Cena is a coward, but Cena pointed out that he was the one waiting in the ring. The Miz walked to ringside and got in the ring with Cena. Cena said he would give the Miz exactly what he wants – a main event PPV match with him at the Bash! Cena said the Miz wasn’t a Reality Show has-been, he’s a WWE never-was. The Miz took a cheap-shot and ran away, but it didn’t even phase John Cena!
ON LOCACTION: Vince McMahon is a heel again. His limo broke down because Donald Trump had his limo and Vince had to use the back-up. Vince screamed at the driver, who suggested they walk to the arena – which was about 100 yards away. Vince said he was going to the arena in a limo and ordered the driver to get on the phone to his boss!
SIX MAN TAG TEAM MATCH (SMACKDOWN!)
Jeff Hardy & Rey Mysterio & The Great Khali defeated Edge & Chris Jericho & Dolph Ziggler: World Heavyweight champion C.M. Punk joined SmackDown! announcers Jim Ross & Todd Grisham on commentary and thanked Donald Trump for featuring SmackDown! superstars on RAW. After the match, Punk stepped into the ring behind Jeff Hardy and raised his arm. Hardy didn’t realize, and when he looked over he got upset because Punk was stealing his spotlight (at least that’s the excuse the announcers came up with).
BACKSTAGE SEGMENT: Vince McMahon was trying to get into Donald Trump’s office but it was locked. Santina Marella showed up and greeted Vince, but he slapped “her” hand away. Santina suggested that McMahon share an office with the Donald and they could call it McDonalds. Vince kept knocking and the Donald finally came out. Vince said it was his office, but Trump corrected him saying it was his office now. Trump said Vince’s office was down the hall. Donald Trump then turned around and fired Santina Marella (just like he did to Miss California). Santina walked off camera and Santino showed up. Nicely done!
RINGSIDE: There are no commercials on RAW this week, but Michael Cole & Jerry Lawler were eating some Kentucky Grilled Chicken all night long. And the logo very visible.
IN THE RING
The Colon Brothers: Primo Colon said that Ted DiBiase & Cody Rhodes are cool because they get to hang out with WWE champion Randy Orton. Carlito made an insult that I didn’t catch, and Primo yelled “that’s not cool!” Primo promised to beat Legacy at The Bash and retain their Unified Tag Team titles.
Cody Rhodes w/Ted DiBiase Jr. defeated Primo Colon w/Carlito Colon: Cody Rhodes rolled through a flying body-block and scored the pin while pulling on Primo’s tights for leverage..
Vince McMahon + Goldust & Hornswoggle + Festus: Goldust & Hornswoggle approached Vince McMahon and reminded him that he spent six months thinking Hornswoggle was his bastard son. Goldust put a blond wig on Mr. McMahon, saying “it worked so well for Goldberg.” Vince then looked over and saw his name plate on the door of a bathroom stall. Festus came out of the stall and handed Vince a copy of the Wall Street Journal..
LAST MAN STANDING MATCH FOR THE WWE CHAMPIONSHIP
WWE champion Randy Orton vs. Triple H ended in a draw: During Triple H’s entrance they did the “RAW is brought to you by Kentucky Grilled Chicken” pitch – no commercials MY ASS! Randy Orton quickly targeted Triple H’s leg. Triple H made a slow recovery, but was destroyed by an RKO on top of the announce table! The referee counted to nine before Triple H made it to his feet. Triple H back-dropped Orton onto the table. Both wrestlers beat the 10-count. HHH bashed Orton with a TV monitor! Orton beat the 10-count. They started brawling up the ramp towards the stage. HHH began selling a leg injury, but managed to give Orton a Spine-buster on the metal ramp! Orton beat the 10-count. HHH went for a Pedigree on the ramp, but Orton reversed it into a back-drop! HHH beat the 10-count. Orton bashed HHH into the side of the stage and set up for an RKO. HHH blocked the RKO and shoved Orton over the safety barrier. Orton beat the 10-count. HHH found a ladder under the stage. HHH tried to ram Orton’s head with the ladder, but accidentally took out a crew member with a brutal shot to the face (and nearly took out a few fans in the process). Orton continued the attack on HHH and showed no concern for the crew guy. Orton smashed HHH’s injured leg with the ladder, then rammed him straight in the face! Orton wrapped HHH’s leg between the ladder and repeatedly stomped it. HHH miraculously beat the 10-count. Orton set up the ladder on the stage and tried to awkwardly RKO HHH off the ladder. HHH escaped the RKO and planted Orton with a Pedigree on the stage (HHH’s knee bashed into the stage as well). HHH tried to will himself up using the ladder, but could not do it and both men were counted down by the referee. The referee declared the match a draw, meaning Randy Orton retained the WWE Championship.. Some referees helped HHH get to his feet and he managed to kick Orton once more on his way out.
BACKSTAGE SEGMENT: Mike Mizanin hit on Maryse Ouellet once again, and he was once again shot down by the WWE Diva’s champion…
IN THE RING
Donald Trump + Vince McMahon: Donald Trump was escorted to the ring by Maria Kanellis & Eve Torres.. Trump said there was nothing like really good ownership. Trump said they got rid of this guy McMahon. Trump said earlier he told everybody that they were getting their money back. Trump said he’s not going to appoint Vince’s General Manager, but he will appoint a celebrity host each and every week. Trump said he doesn’t believe in General Managers. Trump said he would be working for the fans, and they will get lots of freebies. Trump started to hype WrestleMania 26 when Vince McMahon made his way to the ring. McMahon said he doesn’t know what Trump was doing but he has had enough of it. McMahon said he didn’t know what Trump was going to do, and he is losing a lot of money because of it. McMahon said that the fans don’t deserve to get their money back. McMahon said they can’t do commercial-free and free live events because in six months he would be bankrupt. Trump said he paid a big price for RAW so he can do whatever the hell he wants. McMahon said it wasn’t fair. Trump said he’s got a lot of billionaire friends and he could double his money any time. McMahon said that Trump planned all of this just to drive him into bankruptcy. McMahon admitted that Trump was smarter than him, and offered to buy RAW back for the same amount and claimed that was fair. Trump said there was no interest. McMahon offered a 25% increase to buy RAW back. Trump said no, so McMahon offered 50% more. Trump said no again, so McMahon raised it to 75%. Trump refused and McMahon yelled “double your money back!” Trump shook McMahon’s hand and said “you’ve got a deal.” McMahon said if Trump ever crosses his path again he will knock him on his billionaire butt! McMahon then put the nail in the coffin and screamed “Donald Trump… you’re fired!” — the fans were actually chanting Donald Trump’s name, so Trump hauled off and slapped McMahon across the face! Some of Trump’s personal security jumped in the ring and stopped the billionaires from getting their hands on each other. Wonder what the shareholders think of THAT.
BACKSTAGE SEGMENT: Vince McMahon ordered Ted DiBiase Jr. & Cody Rhodes to leave the building NOW. Vince threatened Randy Orton with more pain and punishment. Orton begged to be left alone. Vince booked Orton against Triple H at The Bash in a three stages of hell match..

Cena then tried to give Big Show an Attitude Adjustment, but the Miz pushed him over and Big Show got the 1-2-3 to win the match! The Big Show left and the Miz entered the ring and stood over Cena with his arms raised…
