May 10, 2010 – Pittsburgh, PA Announcers: Michael Cole & Jerry “The King” Lawler
DARK MATCH Dos Caras defeated Mathew Justice (billed from Pittsburgh):
IN THE RING Randy Orton + Meat Loaf + Edge + Vickie Guerrero: Randy said he didn’t team up with Edge because he knows him. Randy said Edge doesn’t want to help him he wants to keep him under control, Edge sees him as a threat and he should. Suddenly Meat Loaf came out to annoy everyone for 5 minutes. Meat said Randy was the man. Meat kept yelling Randy’s name. Meat said they were going to introduce him but he couldn’t wait, he had to see Randy because he has a new album coming out. Meat said he has a song that needs to be Randy’s new theme. Meat asked if Randy wanted to hear the song. Randy told Meat to hum him a few bars. Meat said he would do the whole song. Meat started singing, I actually like Meat Loafs music but he sucked here. Randy got annoyed so Meat said the song would pick up and started singing something else. Randy was clearly getting annoyed and hit him with the RKO after Meat annoyed everyone for a few more minutes. Randy smirked at the camera after and sent chills down children’s spines everywhere. Edge came out and said he didn’t think Randy liked celebrities. Edge said he didn’t like them either. Edge said he didn’t like the way they walked on the show and acted like they ran things. Edge said he called WWE global headquarters and complained long and loud so they tweeted him back agreeing with him. Edge said guest celebrity hosts have no more authority on RAW. Edge said that wasn’t enough for him because he thinks that the longest running episodic TV show needs a permanent GM. Edge said it needs to be someone with experience, and the authority to pull it off. Edge said they agreed with him again and you’ll never guess who they picked to be the new GM of Monday night RAW. Edge introduced Vickie Guerrero! Vickie came out screaming excuse me. Edge told everyone to excuse her. Vickie said for the record that despite her personal relationship with Edge in the past she is there to be a true professional. Vickie said speaking of professionalism, Randy attacking celebrities is something that WWE does not condone. Vickie said Randy will be reprimanded. Randy told her to come down to the ring and reprimand him to his face. Edge said that’s exactly what Vickie is talking about, he’s a bully. Edge said tonight he’ll find out what it feels like to be bullied. Vickie said due to Randy’s behavior issues tonight he will take on Edge and a partner of his choice in a 2 on 1 handicap match. Edge said Randy will see how he deals with threats, and that’s a promise.

IN THE RING WWE champion John Cena + Sheamus + Batista + Mark Henry: John said this was a very special occasion to be there tonight (the arena was getting demolished soon). John said he wanted to thank Sheamus. John said because of his outbursts he gave him an entire week to think about his match with Batista. John said maybe Batista was right, the victory of Extreme Rules was intellectual, it didn’t involve athletic ability or brute force. John said he thought it was creative but Batista and critics saw it as an act of cowardice. John said he’s been called a lot of things in his life, but he is not a coward. John said tonight he would prove it. John said he can choose any match he wants to have with Batista at Over the Limit. John said he could force Batista to wear a blindfold, hop on one leg, or be handcuffed, that would be cowardly. John said there will be no easy way out of this match. John said it will be fair, competitive, and brutal. John said this match will be the last time he faces Batista. John said if Batista does win, he’s officially going to forfeit his rematch clause. John said there’s only one match the 2 of them can have. John said in 2 weeks at Over the Limit, he will face Batista in an I quit match. John said if Batista wants to shut him up and see him go, all he’s got to do is make John say 2 words. John said he owes all this to Sheamus, if Sheamus hadn’t kicked him in the head he would have rushed his decision. John said he really wants to thank Sheamus, so that human jar of mayonnaise should come down to the ring. Sheamus came out. Sheamus said if he comes to that ring he guarantees he will leave John in no condition to beat Batista at Over the Limit. Sheamus said he knows it, the people know it, and John knows it deep inside. Sheamus asked if John really wanted him to come down there. John took off his hat and shirt and told Sheamus he would take his chances. Sheamus said John is a foolish man because that decision just cost him his WWE championship. Batista jumped John from behind and hit a spear. Sheamus hit the urinage backbreaker. Batista ran John against the steel ring post outside of the ring twice before throwing him back in. Sheamus hit the bicycle kick. Batista got ready for the Batista bomb but Mark Henry made the save.
BACKSTAGE SEGMENT RAW General Manager Vickie Guerrero & Edge: Edge said he found a partner. Edge said the last time they were on RAW together he said some pretty hateful things toward her but he did it so the people would feel sympathy for her. Edge said it didn’t work because they treated her the same way they treated him. Vickie said they could still be friends. Edge said he wants Vickie to be at ringside tonight for his match. Vickie said Randy freaked her out and she wasn’t going. Edge said it would be fine and guaranteed her safety. Edge said if Randy raises one finger toward her she can just fire him on the spot. Edge said she needs to be at ringside so she can show everyone that she will not be intimidated, and so she can see the look on Randy’s face after Edge beats him.
