IN THE RING
Batista + Sheamus : Batista said last week he became the #1 contender again. Batista said he should be the WWE champion again. Batista asked if anyone actually knew what a last man standing match was. Batista said he would explain what it is real slow so they could understand. Batista said a last man standing match is when you beat your opponent so brutally and so decisively that he is unable to stand before the count of 10. Batista asked if they could count to 10. Batista said that’s not what happened, he did not lose. They played the video of Cena duct taping Batista down. Batista said that was, by far, the most embarrassing moment of Cena’s career. Batista said that was the most embarrassing moment of Cena’s life. Batista said duct tape is something Hornswoggle would do. Batista said he did not lose. Batista said tonight they have more games. Batista said they have a beat the clock tournament to see who chooses the stipulation at Over the Limit. Batista said he had no problem with that because his opponent was Miz. Batista said it won’t take long and asked for Miz to come down to the ring. Sheamus did instead! Sheamus said Batista was pathetic standing there talking about his WWE title match after he lost. Sheamus said he lost, it’s that simple. Sheamus said unlike Batista, he actually won his match at Extreme Rules. Sheamus said he also did something Batista has always wanted to do but never could, he took out Triple H! Sheamus said that’s the problem, the reason he doesn’t have a WWE championship match at Over the Limit is because he took out the son in law. Sheamus said he deserves to be in the title match, not Batista. Sheamus said if Batista wants to fight like a man he can fight him. Sheamus said if Batista wins he’ll shut his gob and walk away, but if he wins he gets John Cena at Over the Limit. Batista said Sheamus had his chance and blew it. Sheamus said he didn’t lose, he was never pinned. Batista said he lost, and they have nothing else to talk about. Batista said he has a match to win, so in other words, get out of his ring. Sheamus said if Batista thinks for one second that things are over, he’s wrong. Sheamus said he will be the WWE champion again, and it will be sooner than Batista thinks.

BEAT THE CLOCK CHALLENGE

Zack said he watches the news, and didn’t want to have to check Primo’s papers. Wayne came on the tron and said that if Zack really wanted to be impressive he had the perfect opponent.

IN THE RING (THE CUTTING EDGE)
Edge + Wayne Brady + Randy Orton: Edge said like it or not, the most controversial superstar of the WWE is back on RAW. Edge said he’s sure people want an explanation for what he did last week, but they don’t deserve one. Edge said he’s kidding he’ll give one, but its fun to pull on their heartstrings. Edge said back at the Royal Rumble he was ready to come back as the white knight of SmackDown! Edge said last week Ted wins a battle royal and he winds up back on RAW. Edge said he had to start over on a brand new show, he was frustrated and angry. Edge said spearing Randy Orton was an act of defiance. Edge said he was the most talked about superstar on any brand this week. Edge said he’s getting ahead of himself and should probably bring out his guest. Wayne Brady came out instead. Edge said Randy Orton can wait. Wayne said he feels great. Wayne said he’s been a huge wrestling fan his entire life and to be able to come out there and watch Edge do his thing was great. Wayne said he wanted to see what it was like to walk in Edge’s shadow. Wayne said he came there tonight not to challenge anyone, but to tell any other guest host who wants to come on RAW, all the other people who have done it before, they aren’t him! Wayne said to all the mini me’s, to all the Cheech and or Chong’s, to Bob Barker, he is Bob Darker. Wayne said he came to RAW it is his house tonight. Edge told him to tell the other camera now, but Randy Orton came out. Wayne went to shake his hand but Randy hit him with the RKO! Edge said he gets it, Randy thinks he’s going to come out and RKO him. Edge said he knows for a fact that’s not going to happen. Edge said last week was a case of Randy being in the wrong place at the wrong time, he would have done the same thing. Edge said last time Randy was a guest on that show was years ago and they became a tag team, Rated RKO. Edge said they dominated DX, they dominated the entire show. Edge said he knows that it can happen again, only this time bigger and better. Edge said Cena and Batista will kill each other at Over the Limit and then they can swoop in and pick up the bones. Edge said no one can stop them. Edge asked if that idea appealed to him or if he was too big a superstar to share the spotlight. Edge said last Monday he wasn’t planning on spearing Randy but now he’s glad he did because he doesn’t get it. Edge said he did everything your supposed to do. Edge said he came back from an injury, filmed some commercials, came up with a catch phrase for all the people to chant, he gave them everything! Edge said they still didn’t fully accept him. Edge said Randy cares about no one but himself but those people get behind him. Edge said they support Randy and chant RKO, and he doesn’t get it! Edge said it’s not fair, the fact that he’s not world champion is not fair. Edge said the fact that he got drafted to RAW isn’t fair, nothing is fair to him. Edge said Randy will join him, because if he thinks that spear last week was anything that was just the tip of the iceberg because he will do it week after week after week. Edge asked if anything he said was registering in Randy’s head. Edge started yelling at Randy to speak so Randy tried to hit him with the RKO. Edge kicked him in the face and got ready for the spear but Randy hit him with the RKO mid move!
