“Then. Now. Forever.” The WWE video leads us into the show.
We go live into the WWE ThunderDome. “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair, The Big Show, Christian, and Shawn Michaels all make their entrances. They all got involved in the Ambulance Match at WWE Clash of Champions, attacking Randy Orton.
Shawn Michaels welcomes everyone to Monday Night Raw. HBK then introduces the man that defeated Randy Orton last night, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. McIntyre makes his entrance doing the Ric Flair strut. McIntyre embraces some of the legends and poses.
McIntyre says this is pretty cool to be standing in the ring with four legends. McIntyre has known these guys for a long time. He grew up with The Big Show and Christian. They traveled the world through his 20s. Christian always watched his back and gave him advice. Big Show was like a big brother to him. As for Shawn Michaels, he wouldn’t be where he is not without him in NXT. As for Ric Flair, he loves his stories. When he came here, Ric Flair was still on the active roster before a certain someone retired him.
Now they’re all here because of one Randall Keith Orton. Last night at Clash of Champions, they went to war. In the end, he beat Orton’s ass and stands here as the WWE Champion. HBK says they’re here to collectively thank McIntyre for whooping Orton’s ass. As they were recovering from what Orton did to them, they got together and showed up last night. They know McIntyre wasn’t aware of that, they wanted to get revenge. If McIntyre is upset about them interfering in the match, it was Flair’s fault. Flair laughs. McIntyre says he’s proven he can beat Orton at SummerSlam. Things are so personal, he doesn’t care about who attacks him.
Randy Orton appears on the big screen. Orton says he hopes McIntyre is enjoying this moment because it won’t last. This is not over until he says so. If McIntyre thinks he went through hell last night, he has no idea what hell is… but he will. Orton won’t be finished with him until he is WWE Champion. McIntyre asks if he’ll beg for another match. Orton says he doesn’t need to beg for anything. He’ll get a title match because he’s Randy Orton and a 13-time WWE Champion. The only reason he’s here today is to remind everyone that there’s a price to be paid when you cross the Legend Killer. Orton then grabs his bag and leaves the arena.
McIntyre says Randy Orton has left the building. Now McIntyre is standing in the ring among legends trying to cement his legacy. McIntyre is putting his title on the line tonight. He doesn’t feel great, but this is the kind of champion he wants to be. McIntyre issues an open challenge to anyone in the back he hasn’t faced yet with the title on the line. McIntyre says he’ll catch up with the WWE Legends later. McIntyre begs someone to step up tonight.
