Venue: Staples Centre,
Welcome to the Raw recap where Orton’s elimination chamber Gauntlet continues against John Cena. Betty White guest stars, and Mark Henry returns. There is still no sign of CM Punk and there probably won’t be for a while, the boy needs some rest. So let’s stop this chatter and see what Raw brings us. Let’s start this shiz-nit!
The Announcer introduces the guest star Betty White.
Stage Promo: Big Show comes out with Betty White and both stand on the ramp. The crowd chant “Betty White, Betty White” which almost takes her to tears. She tells the audience that she is thrilled to be there and tells the audience that she’s gonna kick some ass tonight! The audience cheers as Triple H’s music comes on and Stephanie and HHH walk out to greet Betty White. Triple H smiles the whole time towards Big Show mocking him. Triple H and Steph make their way to the ring as Big Show and Betty White make their way backstage.
In Ring Promo: As usual they both grab mics and Triple H addresses some confusion from last week. He recapped himself saying that Daniel Bryan would get “reconsidered” for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship if he beat Randy Orton. But the audience has to focus on the word “reconsidered” just as Sheamus, John Cena, Antonio Cesaro is also considered for the championship.. Triple H would continue the list of superstars but Randy Orton’s music comes on and he makes his way to the ring. Steph asks Randy if he’s seriously interrupting them again. She tells him to reconsider and to go back and get ready for his match. Randy insists that he’s out to apologize for his actions, to the authority and not the audience. Randy apologizes and tells them that he needs to bring out the viper and retain his championship reign. Steph reverts asking Orton how they could trust him. The crowd chant “Daniel Bryan, Daniel Bryan” which seems to distract Randy Orton. Steph brings up the point of the Daniel Bryan chants and Randy declines that. He doesn’t want to be the face of the WWE in the ring, but the face of the WWE outside of the ring. Daniel Bryan’s music comes on and the crowd goes fucking nuts!!!! Daniel comes to the ring and smiles towards the authority and Orton. The crowd stand behind Daniel doing the usual YES chants. Steph gets on the mic and tells both Bryan and Orton that she doesn’t appreciate superstars coming on during a live show interrupting the Authority. They need to go to Kane and make an appointment. Bryan tells them that he’s not there and that last week he still beat Kane by defeating Randy Orton. He demands a match against Kane later on Raw. Steph tells Daniel that Kane is on leave due to his actions and has a bad negative word on his appraisal. Daniel comes back and tells them that their stupidly running this company. Orton begins yelling at Daniel to think whose he’s talking too and kisses the Authority’s ass for a minute. Daniel comes back reminding Orton of the time he handcuffed Triple H and kissed Stephanie McMahon. Orton looks pissed and tells Triple H that he will kick his ass. Triple H says “no” and tells Daniel Bryan that due to his agitated state, he gets the night off. The crowd chant “No” as the Authority and Orton walk out of the ring.
