THE CHAMP IS HERE – NO THE OTHER GUY – THE ONE WITH THE NEW ARM
Cena says he is used to the reaction (mixed) and all that it means is that he is back. He asks if they missed him and he gets a positive response and some yes chants. He says some feel that he came back too early, and thanks JBL. He had to listen for weeks as JBL said he was coming back too soon and that Del Rio would put him back on the shelf. He did so while doing a very bad JBL impersonation. But he thanks JBL for motivating him, and says he is back for good. He knows what the world title means, and that is that he is not only back on Raw, but he is back on Smackdown. He is going on the European tour to fight as the champion. Sure he has to wear the brace, talk to the doctor, and has to ice it down, but he is back. He is excited to be here, but he knows tonight that Orton has a celebration later tonight, so he will stop talking now. But he promises he is back and puts over Del Rio and says that they have a rematch. If you want some, come get some, because even stronger is more than a hashtag. The champ is here.
Damien Sandow then appears and has something to say. Sandow claims that the uncrowned champ is here and adds that Cena is not fooling him. It is humanly impossible for Cena's injury to heal in the time he was gone, and he saw what Del Rio did to him last night. Sandow says that Cena is afraid that he will cash in right now. He can cash in any time and any place, like right now… then again, any night but tonight. Sandow teases leaving, but then beats down Cena with the briefcase, attacking the arm! He then posts Cena's arm multiple times and slams him to the barricade while yelling, "RISE ABOVE THIS!" Sandow then slams Cena to the steps, then takes them apart and grabs a chair. Sandow them conchairtos Cena's arm on the steps with the chair, and says MY TIME IS NOW! He calls for the ref and is cashing in! We go to a commercial…
They ring the bell as we come back from commercial and we're a go. Cena tries to keep the injured arm away from Sandow, but Sandow gets the divorce court and covers for 2.

Five knuckle shuffle stopped by Sandow, a neck breaker connects and Sandow covers for 2. Sandow sends Cena to the corner, as we see the doctor watching on. Sandow continues the attack on the arm, but Cena looks for and gets the AA but Sandow rolls to the floor. The doctor checks on Cena, but Cena waves him off.

Sandow looks for the full nelson slam, countered by Cena and Sandow is able to kick out. They struggle to their feet, and Sandow locks in the crossface. Cena struggles, and looks to power out and does. Sandow then kicks him away, full nelson slam by Sandow! 1…2…NO! Sandow sets Cena up top now, follows him up and looks for a superplex.

He looked around, and put that man into Evolution, he mentored him and watched him become a star. And then he watched the star do horrible things to everyone, including himself and his family. But the monster matured and became an A+ player, and Triple H watched on with pride as he won the WWE Tile and became the face of the WWE.

The Big Show's music hits. He heads to the ring and brawls with the Shield, and then Goldust, Cody and the Usos come to help. Now the stars in the stage brawl, as Show rushes into the ring, causing Triple H, Stephanie and Orton to bail. Show grabs the mic and says he will not stand by and watch this go down. What is the worst that can happen? He may get arrested, but he has plans for bail. He then says the lawsuit will cost them millions, and doesn't care if he takes every damn dime they have. He has nothing left to lose. Orton sneaks in and levels Show with the title belt. Triple H and Stephanie direct him to attack, but Show is up and KOs Orton!
