The RAW production crew have had enough. In protest of the attacks on non-wrestlers by the Nexus, the entire RAW staff  walks off the show. Can GM Bret Hart salvage a show with a sound, light, or camera crew? How about referees and backstage interviewers? Read to find out…

RAW Fan Script 7/5/2010

1: Recap- The Nexus’ attack on Ricky Steamboat and the Legends, along with members of the RAW staff.

2: Show opens: All seven members of the Nexus are in the ring, including Wade Barrett.

Wade:

As you can see, my visa problems have been solved and I’ve received word that for my troubles I shall be compensated by joining my Nexus partners in the Money in the Bank ladder match, making it seven on seven. As you see the seven of us are united. The WWE is shattered. We…

The microphone goes out.

4: Outside the building: Bret Hart runs to meet up with Todd Grisham and the staff whose walking out.

Bret:

Hey. Wait. What’s going on?

Todd:

You want to know what’s going on, Bret? I’ll tell you why. Last week, we were attacked. The guest host was attacked. We were assaulted. By all rights the Nexus should be in jail. Their leader deported. Instead, they’re getting the opportunity to be WWE Superstars. Well as long as they are here this is an unsafe working environment, and as far as we are concerned, as long as they’re here we’re not. So find someone else to help you put on the show, because until we get some kind of protection, we’re on strike!

Cabs come and the staff gets in them. Cut to commercial.

6: Backstage: GM Bret Hart assembles the RAW roster.

Bret:

Listen. I’ve assembled you here for a reason. As you can see most of our production staff has left the building. This is the longest running, uninterrupted, episodic show on television and I’ll be damned if under my watch a bunch of thugs are going to break that streak. So tonight I’m asking some of you. Any of you. Any one of you that has experience with lighting, camera work, sound, lend a hand because the people in that audience came to see a show, and nobody is going to leave tonight feeling ripped off. So, if you’re with me. Lets go out there and make this RAW, the best there is, best there was, and best there ever will be.

Cut to commercial.

8: Ringside: Jerry “The King” Lawler and Michael Cole’s microphones are back on.

A section of house lights turn on. Standing in the rafters behind them is Unified Champion Sting.

Sting:

Thank you WWE Universe for bearing with us through these ‘technical difficulties’. I would like the following WWE Superstars to report to the ring: US Champion R-Truth, Miz, Ted DiBiase Jr., John Morrison, Evan Bourne, the Fallen Angel, Mark Henry, and William Regal.

They come to the ring with no entrance music.

Sting (cont.):

Tonight I’m giving you an opportunity. Tonight, we’re having a Money in the Bank match. And the winner will not only be the sixth man on Team Raw, but you’ll also receive, at any time you wish tonight only, a shot at my Unified Heavyweight Championship. And guess what, it’s show time!

As a matter of fact I do John. Ted DiBiase you go around flashing your money, your Million Dollar Belt, and your gold digger, thinking that’s all it’ll take to make me surrender my US title to you.

Speaking of having something to say. I got something to say to Randy Orton, Sheamus, and Edge. Boy’s get down here!

Edge, Sheamus, and Randy Orton come to the ring.

Cena:

I’m not going to lie. I don’t like you and you don’t like me, but like it or not…

Edge:

We know Cena and we don’t care. And once more, who died and made you our leader? If anybody should lead this group, it should be me. Out of all of us, I’m the only one here who has won the Money in the Bank match. As I recall, I not only won Money in the Bank, but I cashed it in to win the WWE Championship against well…you.

Orton:

Edge, shut up! You and me still have unfinished business. Business that was rudely interrupted last week by the Nexus. I do not take kindly to being chained to a cage, much less by a bunch of rookies who rely and hit and run tactics. As far as I’m concerned all of you are a means to an end, that end being me punting each and every member of the Nexus. Once “Money in the Bank” is done its open season on each and everyone of you.

Sheamus:

Yeh know what I think? I don’ care about nun’yeh. I don’t care ‘bout the WWE. I don’t care ‘bout the Nexus. I’m only wit’ yeh ‘cause I want what’s mine, the WWE Unified Championship, and once I’m done making an example of the Nexus at “Money in the Bank” it’s open season on all’ya. I have no friends and no need for ‘em.
