WWE RAW Results (8/30) - 900th RAW, Bret Hart & More!
-Josh Matthews welcomes the WWE Champion, Sheamus. And here he comes. Sheamus interrupts Matthews. He says after 900 episodes of Raw, everyone is here to celebrate, except Triple H. He's never coming back. How is it fair that he has to defend his title in a Six Pack at Night of Champions. We're all just a bunch of plastic pladdies. The only real Irishman here is Sheamus. And in spite of the Six Pack Challenge, he has to tag with four of his PPV opponents. One of which is Randy Orton, a man who tried to end his career. Never in the history of Raw a champion has never been treated more poorly (coughRey Mysterio). Here comes Edge. He says Sheamus was giving him a headache fella. Since Edge debuted on Raw, he's been thrown in the long island sound, deranged ex employees run at him through the crowd, been thrown through tables and everything, but he's given back three times as many. He's won 29 championships in the WWE. He's won the Royal Rumble, KOTR, and MITB. He's going to win the Six Pack Challenge. He's going to become the new WWE Champion. Edge heads down to the ring. Their match will start next.
