WWE RAW Opener:

We start off tonight s show with footage from last night s SummerSlam pay per view with emphasis on the Raw related matches. We see Edge hit John Cena with brass knuckles to retain the WWE Title.

In the arena:

Edge comes to the ring and he is going to address the fans. Edge says that he has waited for this night, his entire life. Everyone bought tickets thinking that Edge would not be the WWE champion. They were wrong. People in the cheap seats were wrong. Grown men were wrong. Little kids were wrong. Edge leaves the ring and asks a child at ringside if he thought John Cena would be the champion. Edge tells everyone that they were wrong. Despite the odds against him and in John Cena s home town, he emerged victorious. He is still the WWE Champion. Edge wonders where his belt might be if he is the champion. What about his girlfriend, the hottest women s champion of all time, Lita? Lita is outside the arena and she is at the Bridgeport Harbor. She has the WWE Title belt with her. Edge says the title is more like John Cena s title. Since Edge has erased John Cena from his life forever, he feels that he should get rid of the last remnant of John Cena from his life. He suggests a burial at sea. Edge asks Lita to do the honors. Lita tosses the belt into the harbor. Edge says that ends the era of John Cena. Edge welcomes the new era. An era that is rated R . Smoke covers Edge in the ring and a new belt is lowered. Edge says the belt is gorgeous. That ends the story of Edge and John Cena with a happy ending, for him. Now that John Cena is gone from his life, if there are any other challengers who want to be the next chapter for the Rated R Champion, they can step up. Edge is interrupted by Jeff Hardy who comes out to the ring as only Jeff Hardy can. Edge is in shock in the center of the ring. Jeff gets in Edge s face and he says that Edge talks too much. Edge wants to know what the hell Jeff Hardy is doing here. He wonders if Jeff Hardy died three years ago. He says that Jeff Hardy is not going to make his comeback at Edge s expense. He says that Hardy is wrong. He tells Jeff to learn a lesson from his older brother. He ruined Matt s career. He tells Jeff that Matt is a no talent loser, just like him. Jeff punches Edge and hits a mule kick. Hardy goes up top but Edge rolls out of the ring.
