Welcome to our WrestlingINC.com Live WWE Monday Night RAW Viewing Party. Tonight’s show comes from the Amway Center in Orlando, FL.

We see the entire roster on the stage, including Triple H and WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon. Tom Phillips is at ringside with Samoa Joe and Byron Saxton. Tom leads us in a moment of silence and a ten-bell salute for Patterson. We go to the standard RAW intro video.
– We go back to the ring and out comes Randy Orton. We cut to a video package with recent happenings in the feud between Orton and “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt with Alexa Bliss. Orton compares himself to The Fiend and how he doesn’t need to wear a mask, and says when his time comes, he will stare the devil in the face and let him know that the most evil son of a b—h has come home. But in the meantime, he will be knocking on the door of the Firefly Fun House, waiting and wondering just exactly who is going to let him in. The Fun House music interrupts as we see Wyatt waving on the big screen.
Wyatt says it’s so nice of Orton to join him tonight. Bliss would’ve joined them tonight but she’s not here since Orton was so mean to her last week. Orton says he’s the last person Wyatt wants to play games with. Wyatt goes to a “Let’s Get Randy” game show parody. The prizes are a brand new Crucix, the one we’ve seen Wyatt and Bliss use as of late, and the carcass of Friendship Frog. The contestants are Mercy The Buzzard, Ramblin’ Rabbit and Huskus The Pig. The question is how should Orton be punished at WWE TLC. They all get a chance to answer and Wyatt says none of his contestants are correct but fortunately for Orton, “He” always has the right answer. Wyatt changes his tune and we get flashes of The Fiend.
Orton says he will play games if Wyatt wants to, but he wants a match tonight. Not with The Fiend because he will see him at TLC… Orton wants to face Wyatt tonight. Wyatt accepts. The Fun House music starts back up as Wyatt waves goodbye to Orton. Orton looks on and smirks in the ring.

Miz and Morrison asks AJ about his plan for the TLC Match against WWE Champion Drew McIntyre at TLC. AJ says it’s pretty challenging because this is his first time facing Drew, but he plans to take a steel chair and wrap it around Drew until it breaks, and to put Drew through every table he sees, so Drew will be coughing up splinters for months. He goes on about Drew’s size, heart and strength, but says all that won’t mean a thing when he knocks Drew out cold, then climbs the ladder to reclaim his spot at the top of the mountain, as the new WWE Champion.

Sheamus says that’s not exactly correct. The music interrupts and out comes McIntyre in his kilt. Fans cheer them on and the heels look worried in the ring.

McIntyre knocks AJ for a pop and turns his attention to Miz and Morrison, commenting on how they keep coming back for more each time they get knocked down. McIntyre recalls how everyone in the back thinks Miz has no balls. Drew knows that’s not true, he knows Miz has balls, just not his original ones because Maryse keeps those in her purse. He says Miz replaced those balls with Morrison’s when he made him his personal sidekick b—h. It looks like a fight is about to break out when AJ stands out with Omos, pointing that later on it will really be 4-on-2, not 3-on-2.
