WWE RAW Opener:

Tonight s show starts with a graphic remembering Bam Bam Bigelow, who passed away last week. We see footage from Edge and Randy Orton s comments last week and their reign of terror over Jim Duggan and Ric Flair to send a message to Shawn Michaels. We see Shawn take care of Edge and Randy Orton thanks to help from the Sledgehammer.

In the arena:

Shawn Michaels comes out and he has something to say to the crowd. Shawn assumes the position and he asks Lafayette if they can feel it. Last week, he felt something that he thought did not exist before. It was a feeling that he could overcome even the most overwhelming odds. The feeling that he could beat up any bully that could push his way through life. Now, as many know, over the last few years, he has tried his utmost to suppress his feelings and not show them again. That stops today. No matter what the odds and obstacles, the Heartbreak Kid . . . The Showstopper is back. He believes that he can once again be the WWE Champion. The Road to Wrestlemania begins on Sunday with the 30 man Royal Rumble to determine who goes to the main event at Wrestlemania. Shawn is going to take his new, reborn passion and he hopes that God takes mercy on the souls of the twenty-nine people who get in his way. No mere mortal man is ever going to keep him from fulfilling his destiny. Michaels is interrupted by Edge who comes out onto the Rawest Stage in Sports Entertainment. Edge says that Shawn Michaels has a feeling he is going to win the Royal Rumble, but he has a feeling too. The feeling is the one that Shawn is going to have after the Royal Rumble. It will be a feeling of failure because he is not going to win the Royal Rumble and main event Wrestlemania because Edge says that he will be winning the Rumble. He will then win the World Title at Wrestlemania. Shawn tells Edge to shut up and Shawn says that Edge needs to come to the ring so he can tear him apart. Shawn calls Edge a gutless coward. Edge walks to the ring and Michaels goes out after Edge. Michaels takes Edge down and they battle on the ramp. Edge and Michaels fight into the crowd while the referee tries to get more security to the ring to break things up. Security is finally able to separate both men, but Michaels fights free and he goes after Edge. We go to commercial.

Back on RAW:

We are back and Shawn Michaels and Edge have moved into the back, but they continue to battle while security is trying to stop them. Coach gets in the middle and he tells them to hold both men down. Coach tells them to lock Shawn Michaels in his locker room.

Vince says that he is going to make another announcement in the ring in a few moments. We go to commercial.

In the arena:

We are back and there is NO CHANCE as Vince McMahon stunt walks to the ring with Jonathan Coachman following a few feet behind Vince. Vince has a mic and he talks about how he read Donald Trump s letter last week. Vince says that it is his turn to read his letter to Donald Trump. Vince looks for his reading glasses and gets them from Coach. It reads: Dear Donald. Now that your issue with Rosie is simmering down, there is no surprise that her television ratings are in the toilet. That is where the minds of everyone in Lafayette appears to be. While the Apprentice is doing well, it can do better. It could do better with a big star, like me. By having a very special star on the Apprentice, ratings would sour. That is because I have been on television for over thirty-five years. People tune in to see me. I single handedly carried the ratings for Monday Night Raw. My presence alone makes USA the number one network on cable. I don t know whether it is my good looks, my charisma, my business acumen, or my Herculean physique. People all over the world love me. As a matter of fact, the people here love him so much that he loves them back. As a token of his appreciation...the crowd calls Vince an a**hole, and Vince says that he will wait until next week to show his appreciation.

John Cena s music plays and he comes to the ring. Cena has a mic and he has something to say. Cena tells Vince to ease up and he wonders what happened to him. He wants to know when Vince McMahon became Brother Love. Cena tells Vince to stop being a puss bag because he does not love the fans, and he even said it last week. Cena points out how the fans don t want to hear him, but Vince continues to talk. Cena wonders what Vince s obsession with Donald Trump is because Vince s obsessions do not work. Vince was obsessed with DX, but it ended up with Vince s head up Big Show s ass. Vince was also obsessed with his own football league. Now it is Donald Trump. Cena says that it is probably because they are egomaniacs. Coach says that Trump is a much bigger egomaniac than Vince. Cena suggests that it is because they are both shameless self-promoters. Coach says that Trump is a bigger self-promoter than Vince. Cena says that it is because of the fancy suits and fancy hair. Coach says that simply because Trump has more money than Vince McMahon...Vince cuts off Coach and he says that there is not a damn thing that Donald Trump has more of than him. Vince says that he does not like insults. Vince brings up the Last Man Standing match on Sunday, and then he suggests that Cena should be in action tonight. Vince suggests that Cena have a tune up match. John Cena will face Jonathan Coachman. We go to commercial.
