~Batista does not approve…~

Batista makes his way to the ring, and he has something to discuss. I don’t think its politics. He won’t whine and cry about last week, he is here to use his rematch clause and win back his title.

Stephanie McMahon is here live via satellite, and says no dice on the rematch clause. Shane made it clear that the winner of the cage match would defend against Cena at the Survivor Series. And Jericho will face Cena at that show, but out of respect Batista cannot have a title match before then. She then says there will be a new era on Raw with Adamle gone. She wants to wipe the slate clean. They want to end some feuds here tonight. Kane will meet Rey in a NO DQ match, and for the last time Chris Jericho faces HBK in a last man standing match. She thanks us all, and then thanks Batista for being so understanding.

Randall K. Orton, Tattoo Artist comes to the ring now. Orton says that when it comes to a title shot, Batista will have to wait in line. John Cena gets his chance at Survivor Series, but then it is his turn because he is better than Batista and was always better than Batista. He even got kicked out of Evolution because he was better, and Batista couldn’t beat him then or now. That is why he deserves the title shot. Batista, obviously not approving of this says that history is written by winners, and if you look at their history, he has been better in every way, shape and form. Better when they were with Evolution and better now. Batista says they should go ahead and move on, so tonight, Orton vs. Batista to settle it! Orton thinks it over, and agrees to this. But just so Batista knows, when he wins the title, he will be a champion longer than 8-days. Batista tosses the mic to Orton, looks for the Batista bomb, but Orton escapes.

-Santino Marella comes to the ring and introduces the HONK-A-PERFECT-MOUNTIE-METER~! This is because he is so confident that he will be the IC Champion of the Earth! The combined title runs of the three men were 123-weeks! He has been the champion for 13-weeks. According to his calculations, that is just 2-years and 4-months and he will break that record and will be one step closer tonight to his goal. He then mocks Regal and states that Italy is the best.

-Regal and the fine as hell Layla make their way to the ring.

-Lillian does the super special ring announcing.

-Cole heads into the ring and interviews Regal. Regal says that he will be proud to wear the title with the pride and dignity of an Englishman. He will also be proud to take the spirit of the UK fans all around the world. Regal is proud to be a loyal subject to her majesty the queen, but most of all, he is proud to be our Intercontinental Champion.

-Kane is backstage and welcomes Stephanie and Shane back to Raw. Shane brings out his inner child, when he used to torture insects and birds. He will do the same to Rey tonight. He never liked being liked, not by anyone. After tonight, they will like him even less, and he will like himself even more.

Mike Knox’s Beard vs. D’Lo Brown

Hey D’Lo still has a job, that’s good to see. Mike Knox’s Beard is officially a part of Raw now. He take Brown to the corner, rights follow and he just beats Brown down.

-We get a John Cena video package, focusing on his jump to Raw and his return at Survivor Series.

Jericho is out and mocks Cena’s return. He then says Batista took out Cena, and he was able to beat Batista for the title to prove that HE is the best in the world today. And then there is HBK. He exposed HBK for everything he is, HBK got offended so he through him threw a TV monitor, punched his wife “accidentally,” which HBK mocks to deal with the pain and then he destroyed him time and time again before he defeated him in a ladder match. And now we have tonight, the final chapter in the sad and pathetic story of HBK. Cena needs to pay attention because the same will happen to him. Jericho is the champion, at the top of his game and Cena is returning from injury. He will show us all that not every story has a happy ending.

-Rey walks.
