RAW 8/22/10 Fan Script

1: Recap: Daniel Bryan saving Cena.

2: Show opens. Daniel Bryan is standing in the ring.

Daniel Bryan:

Last year, I got the call I dreamed of, the opportunity to wrestle for the WWE. After ten years of starving and breaking my back around the world on the independent scene I finally made it to the big leagues. And what happened when I got here? I was forced to take part in contest my fellow rookies where my fellow rookies were judged not on wrestling ability but our ability to amuse a group of judges who were afraid of us because they knew we were gonna take their spots, which we did! Unfortunately, we took things too far and someone had to take the fall. The Nexus chose me and I was fired. And while nobody in the Nexus went to bat for me, and people like Michael Cole gloated, you, the WWE Universe, made feelings known and now I’m back. For that I thank you and as far this Nexus invasion is concerned, I’m not Nexus, I’m not WWE, I am a Ronin, a samurai without a master. I wrestle for myself and myself only and whether it’s…

The Miz’s music hits and he comes out to the Titan Tron stage with his NXT rookie, Alex Riley.

The Miz:

Really? Really Daniel Bryan? ‘I am a samurai’ that’s the best you can come up with? No wonder you were fired. No wonder you were the most embarrassing rookie in NXT history! You made me look like a fool!

Daniel Bryan:

Miz, every time you look like a fool every time you open that big mouth of yours. The fact of the matter is I’m better than you. I always have been and always will be and (he holds the ring ropes open) if want to challenge that assessment well, I’m holding the ropes for you.

The Miz:

I don’t need to prove myself to you, my greatest failure. You see Danny boy, I am better then you because tonight, after I beat Edge, I will be the number one contender to the Unified Heavyweight Championship, and when I defeat the Unified Champion Sting, I will be the King of the Ring because I am the Miz and I am AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

Daniel Bryan:

You know what Miz? I hope you win. I hope you beat Edge and go all the way to win the Unified title because I’m gonna be the one to take that title from you.

The Miz:

I don’t need to trade words with a nobody and a failure like you. My NXT rookie Alex Riley is twice the performer you are. He made it to the final three and I have so much confidence in him, that I’m going to give him the pleasure of beating on you tonight! And that is AWESOME!!!!!!!

2: Pre-tape: US Champion Ted DiBiase and Divas Champion Maryse arrive in a limousine to meet R-Truth and Melina.

DiBiase:

All right Truth we’re here. And just to let you know the only reason Maryse and I are doing this is because if we don’t we’ll be stripped of our titles. So let’s get this over with.

Truth:

Hey Ted don’t worry.

Melina:

Like we said last week, we aren’t going to make you do anything demeaning.

Truth:

We aren’t going to make you do anything for us, all you have to do is a few chores for a friend.

Melina:

Just for today.

Maryse:

What kind of ‘friend’ is this?

Truth:

He’s pulling in right now.

An old VW pulls up and VIRGIL steps out. He hugs and high fives Truth and Melina.

Truth:

Virgil! How you doing man?

Melina:

Hi Virgil.

Virgil:

Hey guys. Hi Maryse. Hi Ted. Shall we get started?

DiBiase:

No! No, this was not part of the agreement.

Maryse:

Uh uh.

Truth:

No, the agreement was you do what we say for one day. And we say you do everything Virgil says for you to do. Ya dig?

DiBiase scowls.

Virgil:

Okay, why don’t we all go to my house and we’ll start there.

Daniel Bryan:

Yeah? How?

Wade Barrett:

Come back to the Nexus. Return to us. You have no cause to be loyal to the WWE.

Daniel Bryan:
