“Then. Now. Forever.” The WWE video leads us into the show.
The Raw video plays, and we go live into the Performance Center.
Randy Orton makes his way to the ring. The commentators state that Edge tore his tricep last night. Orton says last night at WWE Backlash, he did exactly what he said he was going to do. He embarrassed and humiliated Edge. He wrote the final chapter in Edge’s story of redemption. Orton also gave him closure. He knew when he saw Edge in January at the Royal Rumble when he returned to the ring that he knew he would never be the competitor he was back in the day. All Edge needed to do was let Orton help him, but he was stubborn and resisted. All he needed to do was trust Orton just like Orton trusted him years ago when Edge saved him from his own self-destruction. At WrestleMania, he wasn’t the last man standing, but he stands here victorious after the greatest wrestling match ever. That makes him the greatest wrestler ever, and he doesn’t need a WWE Title to prove it.
Orton does need to thank Edge for reigniting the fire in his gut. Edge helped him remember what it’s like to be the Legend Killer. Orton wishes Edge was here so he could thank him. Orton knows why Edge isn’t here. It’s not just because he Punted his skull. Orton also tore Edge’s tricep clean off the bone. Orton knew when it happened and could have ended it, but he wanted to keep going and make Edge suffer so he could send Edge back home to be a husband and father to Lyric, Ruby, and Beth. Edge is in some god forsaken hospital on an operating table while a team of doctors try to surgically reattach that muscle to the bone. Edge has another mountain to climb. Orton hopes he reaches the peak of that mountain. Orton hears Edge will be clear in July… July of 2029. Hopefully their paths cross again in nine years.
Christian’s music hits! Christian asks what kind of man Orton is. Orton thinks he’s a Legend Killer, but Christian thinks he’s cold, calculating, and a son of a bitch. Orton laughs. Christian says Orton is wrong about Edge’s career being over. Edge has never quit and won’t quit now. Orton doesn’t have a say on when it’s over. Edge will get his closure on his terms, not Orton’s. Orton cannot believe Christian came down the ramp to interrupt him. This isn’t about Christian. It’s about him and Edge. Christian is nothing more than jealous of his friend. Orton sees the look in Christian’s eye. Orton knows what Christian wants. Christian wants one more match. Christian and Edge are the same. Christian cannot accept the fact that this was taken from him before he was ready to say goodbye. Christian isn’t medically cleared to compete, but Orton has a way around that. Orton suggests they fight tonight in an unsanctioned match. Christian thinks about it. Orton says the offer expires by the end of the night. If he doesn’t accept, it proves what everyone knows: Christian is nothing more than a coward.
