One week after The Miz shocked the world by cashing in his Money-in-the-Bank contract on an injured Randy Orton to win the WWE Title, RAW kicks off with the personally signed “apprentice” of The Miz, Alex Riley! Riley states that he is “honored” to be a part of one of the most “groundbreaking” moments in “entertainment history” and that the fans will never “forget” how they “felt” when The Miz cashed in to win the WWE Title before proclaiming that he is not “afraid of a party” and he plans to throw The Miz one of the “most exciting, over-the-top victory celebrations of all time”! Riley then proclaims that “Monday Night RAW is all going A-Ri and it’s going to be awesome”! What does Alex Riley have in store for The Miz and his “victory celebration”?
Then it was time for the First Round Match in the 2010 King of the Ring tournament as SmackDown’s self-proclaimed “Essence of Excellence” Alberto Del Rio would go one-on-one with RAW’s United States Champion Daniel Bryan! After a plancha dive to the outside on Alberto Del Rio that inadvertently injured his shoulder, Daniel Bryan would find himself locked in the cross armbreaker of Alberto Del Rio and, with an already injured shoulder, Bryan had no choice but to tap out as Alberto Del Rio advanced to the Semi-Finals of the King of the Ring tournament!
R-Truth made an appearance on RAW as the good friend of John Cena proclaimed that, last week, Cena went out “like a champ” in his final night in the WWE after being fired before stating that The Nexus may have won the “battle” , but the “war hasn’t even started yet”! R-Truth then lays out a challenge for any Nexus member to go one-on-one with him! The backstage area is then shown where Nexus leader Wade Barrett sends out Nexus member Michael McGillicutty as McGillicutty states that he is going to show R-Truth what happens when you challenge someone from The Nexus! McGillicutty then marches towards the ring, but is cut off by an unknown assailant as McGillicutty is shown being assaulted and thrown up against a wall before a hand reaches down and gives the “You Can’t See Me” taunt! Despite being fired from the WWE last week, it is apparent that John Cena has targeted The Nexus, but how will The Nexus respond to the attack?
Then it was time to determine who will face Alberto Del Rio in the Semi-Finals of the King of the Ring tournament as RAW’s “Guru of Greatness” John Morrison would go one-on-one with SmackDown’s “Dashing” Cody Rhodes in the second First Round Match! In the end, it was John Morrison delivering a vicious knee to the face of “Dashing” Cody Rhodes en route to picking up the win and advancing to the Semi-Finals of the King of the Ring tournament! The first Semi-Final match has been set as Alberto Del Rio will face John Morrison, but who will advance in the tournament?
Then it was time for the third First Round Match of the King of the Ring tournament as “The Chosen One” Drew McIntyre would have the unenviable task of going one-on-one with the seemingly unstoppable Ezekiel Jackson! In the end, it was both competitors finding themselves on the outside of the ring as the referee reaches his ten count, meaning that both Ezekiel Jackson and Drew McIntyre are counted out and the winner of the match between Sheamus and Kofi Kingston will get an automatic bye into the Finals to face either John Morrison or Alberto Del Rio! After the match, Ezekiel Jackson would throw Drew McIntyre back into the ring where McIntyre would try to take advantage by hooking up the Future Shock DDT, but “Big Zeke” would overpower McIntyre and would ultimately send McIntyre packing out of the ring!
One week after cashing in the Money-in-the-Bank contract on a vulnerable Randy Orton, the new WWE Champion The Miz, along with his “apprentice”, Alex Riley, makes an appearance on RAW! Miz states that he has had a “struggle” to get to the WWE and he has proven himself against all naysayers before telling everyone who has doubted him that he is the WWE Champion! Miz then reveals that the former WWE Champion Randy Orton is not on RAW because of an injury to his knee suffered at the hands of The Nexus before saying that Orton’s “pride” is the only thing that is injured and that Orton is “afraid to show his face”! Miz then proclaims that when he says he is going to do something, he will “accomplish” it before proclaiming that he is going to be the “longest reigning WWE Champion in history”! Miz then tells the fans that it takes an “exceptional person” to “prove everyone wrong” and that he is nothing like the fans because he is “one in a billion” because he has “achieved” his “dream”! Miz then lists off several WWE legends and WWE Hall of Famers who have never won the WWE Title before Miz is interrupted by one of those Hall of Famers who have not won the WWE Title as RAW Color Commentator Jerry “The King” Lawler interrupts The Miz and tells the new WWE Champion that Miz beat a guy who was attacked by seven other people and that may make Miz “clever” and an “opportunist”, but it does not make him “awesome”! Miz responds by saying that it sounds like the “ramblings of a bitter, old man” who fought for “four decades” to do what he did in “one night”! The Miz’s biggest fan, RAW Play-by-Play Commentator Michael Cole then tells Jerry Lawler to “stop” before telling Lawler that it is Miz’s “night” and Lawler should “sit down”! Jerry Lawler then tells The Miz that he should call a Superstar out to give that individual a WWE Title shot to prove himself and Michael Cole tells Jerry Lawler that Miz may make an “example” out of Jerry Lawler! Lawler then states that he has been in the WWE since 1993 and he has never had a shot at the WWE Title before challenging The Miz to give him a title shot and Miz responds by saying that he is “not interested” in defending his WWE Title on that night! Jerry Lawler then responds by saying that Miz is not “awesome”, he is a “coward” and The Miz tells Lawler that he is a “shell of a Hall of Famer”! This prompts the anonymous General Manager of RAW to chime in with an email that announces that he is “interested” in seeing The Miz defend the WWE Title before making the match official as The Miz will defend the WWE Title against Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler and, in the spirit of the WWE TLC pay-per-view coming up in a few weeks, the WWE Title match will be a Tables, Ladders, & Chairs Match! Will the new WWE Champion The Miz defeat Jerry “The King” Lawler or will the Hall of Famer upset the new champion to win his first WWE Title?
Then it was time for the final First Round Match in the King of the Ring tournament as “The Celtic Warrior” Sheamus would go one-on-one with Kofi Kingston with the winner getting a bye into the Finals of the King of the Ring tournament! In the end, it was Sheamus catching Kofi Kingston in mid-air with the Brogue Kick en route to advancing to the Finals of the King of the Ring tournament to face either Alberto Del Rio or John Morrison with the winner being named the 2010 King of the Ring!
The WWE Tag Team Champions were in action on RAW as Nexus members Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel would face the team of Yoshi Tatsu & Mark Henry, but early on in the match, John Cena would come down to ringside to sit in the front row of fans! After being distracted by John Cena’s presence at ringside, Heath Slater would find himself caught in mid-air by Mark Henry as Henry would plant Slater with the World’s Strongest Slam en route to picking up the win! Immediately after the match, John Cena would quickly strip the announce table before pulling Heath Slater out of the ring and delivering the Attitude Adjustment to the WWE Tag Team Champion through the announce table before quickly exiting through the crowd! After attacking Nexus members on two separate occasions, how will The Nexus respond to John Cena’s attacks?
Then it was time for the Semi-Final match in the King of the Ring tournament as John Morrison would go one-on-one with Alberto Del Rio with the winner facing Sheamus in the Finals! In the end, it looked like Alberto Del Rio was set to pick up the win when the horn of one of his classic cars being honked distracts Del Rio as Rey Mysterio is shown in one of Del Rio’s cars! This would distract Del Rio long enough for John Morrison to take advantage by hitting the Flying Chuck kick en route to picking up the win and advancing to the Finals to face Sheamus with the winner being named the 2010 King of the Ring!
After John Cena attacked Nexus members Michael McGillicutty and Heath Slater, Nexus leader Wade Barrett makes an appearance on RAW and reveals that the anonymous General Manager of RAW has informed him that he is the “only person” that can get John Cena his job back before saying that Cena’s attack on The Nexus is an attempt to frustrate him to the point of getting reinstated to extract his “revenge”, but Barrett promises that Cena will “never, ever work in the WWE ever again” and that the “element of surprise has now left” and that The Nexus will get their hands on John Cena! Cena then interrupts and appears on the Tron as Cena states that he is not there to get his job back, he is there to keep his “word” and take out The Nexus before revealing that the WWE security is in “no rush” to apprehend him after The Nexus attacked the security on their first night on RAW! The three able-bodied Nexus members would then surround John Cena, but Cena would remind Wade Barrett and The Nexus that he is not the only enemy of The Nexus as a slew of RAW Superstars rush in and attack The Nexus as John Cena gets a hold of Nexus member Justin Gabriel and hurls the WWE Tag Team Champion into the side of a car before throwing Gabriel into a stack of steel chairs and, finally, delivering the Attitude Adjustment to Gabriel on the hood of a car! Cena would then tells Barrett that his attacks will not stop until The Nexus is taken out before telling Barrett that he will be back next week! What kind of chaos will take place next week when John Cena returns to RAW to finish what he started by taking out The Nexus?
The Divas were in action on RAW as Divas Champion Natalya would team with Melina & Gail Kim to face the team of Maryse, Alicia Fox, & Tamina in a 6-Diva Tag Match! During the match, Santino Marella would come out and would serenade his love interest, Tamina, leading to Tamina leaving with Santino! This would leave Maryse & Alicia Fox high and dry as Alicia Fox would find herself locked in the Sharpshooter by Natalya and ultimately tapping out to the maneuver!
Then it was time to determine the 2010 King of the Ring as “The Celtic Warrior” Sheamus would go one-on-one with “The Guru of Greatness” John Morrison with the winner being named the 2010 King of the Ring! In the end, it was Sheamus taking advantage of the injured shoulder of John Morrison to hit the Brogue Kick and follow it up with the High Cross en route to pinning John Morrison to become the 2010 King of the Ring! After the match, the RAW Guest Star “Miss USA” Rima Fakih would do the honors of handing King Sheamus his scepter as Sheamus would take his seat in his throne as “Miss USA” would place the crown atop the head of the 19th King of the Ring as the new King would then shout “long live the King”!
Then it was time for the historic main event as the new WWE Champion The Miz would defend his WWE Title against a legendary competitor who has never received a WWE Title shot in WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler in a Tables, Ladders, & Chairs Match! During the match, The Miz’s “apprentice”, Alex Riley, would deliver a clothesline to Jerry Lawler, but Lawler would fight back, ultimately knocking Riley off of the apron and through a table at ringside! Later on in the match, The Miz would go for a superplex on Jerry Lawler, but Lawler would ultimately knock The Miz off of the top rope and through a table! This would prompt RAW Play-by-Play Commentator Michael Cole to get out of his seat and try to help The Miz before entering the ring and pulling his broadcast partner off of the ladder, leading to Jerry Lawler delivering a right hand to Cole and pummeling Cole! This would ultimately lead to The Miz being given time to recover as the WWE Champion would re-enter the ring and both champion and Hall of Famer would find themselves battling at the top of the ladder with The Miz ultimately retrieving the WWE Title to successfully retain the gold! How will Jerry Lawler respond to his broadcast partner, Michael Cole, getting physically involved in the match and costing him his one shot at being the WWE Champion?
After eleven weeks of competitions and eliminations, the time to determine the WWE’s next breakout Diva was upon us as the Season Three Finale of WWE NXT came to you from the Norfolk Scope Arena in Norfolk, VA. After Jamie, Maxine, Aksana, & A.J. have all had their dreams ended, it would come down to two NXT Rookie Divas as either Naomi or Kaitlyn would be named the WWE’s next breakout Diva!

Naomi’s WWE Pro, Kelly Kelly, is not able to be in the arena since the SmackDown Diva is overseas with Big Show & Eve Torres visiting the U.S. Troops, but Kelly Kelly appears in a recorded message to tell her Rookie Diva that Naomi is the best Rookie Diva she could have before wishing her protégé the best of luck! The attention then turned to the tumultuous pairing of Vickie Guerrero & Kaitlyn as Vickie, answering for Kaitlyn, states that she regrets hand-picking her Rookie Diva, Kaitlyn, and that Kaitlyn is “disruptive” and “disrespectful” before reminding Kaitlyn about their battle over Vickie’s boyfriend, Dolph Ziggler! Kaitlyn then states that she is not going to let another argument with Vickie Guerrero ruin her last night on NXT before Kaitlyn would shove her WWE Pro down, prompting Vickie Guerrero to throw a tantrum!

Then it was time for a unique 6-Diva Tag Match as The Bella Twins would team with eliminated NXT Rookie Diva, A.J., to face Alicia Fox and eliminated Rookie Divas Maxine & Aksana!

With several tables, ladders, and chairs surrounding the ring and one giant ladder in the ring, SmackDown kicks off with “The Master of the 619” Rey Mysterio as Rey states that he would have “loved” to be the 2010 King of the Ring, but he was cost that opportunity last week by Alberto Del Rio! Rey continues that he is not the type to “complain”, but he did take care of “business” on RAW when he cost Del Rio the Semi-Final match in the King of the Ring tournament! Rey then ascends the giant ladder as Rey states that being the King is about being a “leader” and being “fearless” and about “climbing so high that you ain’t afraid to fall” before saying that Alberto Del Rio may like his “fancy cars”, but he likes to “fly”! This brings out the self-proclaimed “Essence of Excellence” Alberto Del Rio as Del Rio states that the reason that other Superstars climb ladders is so they can be on his “level” before reminding Rey Mysterio what happened the last time Rey was around him and steel chairs! Rey responds by saying that he has been injured by Superstars “twice” as good as Alberto Del Rio and that he always returns before telling Del Rio they should take care of “business” right now! Del Rio responds by ascending the ladder and calling Rey an “ambitious chihuahua” before saying that it is not going to happen! Rey then states that he did not call Del Rio out there to “ask” Del Rio about a match, he is there to “tell” Del Rio about a match before revealing that he talked to SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long and they will go one-on-one at WWE TLC! Del Rio respond to this news by saying that he has no reason to face Rey again because he has already beaten Rey! Rey then responds by popping Del Rio with the microphone to knock him off of the ladder and Del Rio responds by knocking Rey off of the ladder before Rey ultimately takes Del Rio to the outside of the ring and, with Del Rio laid out on a table, Rey would dive off of the ring apron with a legdrop through Del Rio and through the table! What will happen when these two Superstars square off at WWE TLC?
Backstage, in a moment captured earlier on in the day, Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler and Dolph’s girlfriend, SmackDown Consultant Vickie Guerrero run into the winner of NXT Season Three, Kaitlyn, who informs the couple that she is SmackDown’s newest Diva! What kind of impact will Kaitlyn have on SmackDown?
The Intercontinental Champion was in action on SmackDown as Dolph Ziggler would team with “The Chosen One” Drew McIntyre to face the team of “The Ballin’ Superstar” MVP and “The World Warrior” Kaval in tag team action! In the end, it was Vickie Guerrero distracting the referee long enough for Drew McIntyre to land a shot on Kaval, allowing Dolph Ziggler to hit the Zig Zag en route to picking up the win for himself and McIntyre! After the match, an angry World Heavyweight Champion Kane would march out to the ring and prey on a weakened MVP and Kaval by delivering a thunderous chokeslam to MVP and following that up by spiking Kaval with the Tombstone Piledriver! Kane would then, once again, demand to know the whereabouts of his father, Paul Bearer, and Edge would appear on the Tron and tell Kane to come get Paul Bearer in the loading dock area! Kane would rush to the backstage area and would pursue Edge to the back of a semi truck where some heavy equipment crushes a dummy Paul Bearer! Kane would then spot Edge making his getaway and would then pursue Edge! What else will happen between Edge and Kane before the two face off in the main event?
Then it was time to determine the new #1 Contender for the Intercontinental Title as Kofi Kingston would go one-on-one with “The All-American American” Jack Swagger with the winner earning that opportunity! In the end, it was Kofi Kingston hitting Trouble In Paradise on Jack Swagger from the outside of the ring en route to picking up the win and becoming the new #1 Contender for the Intercontinental Title!

One week after picking up a big win over Rey Mysterio, “Dashing” Cody Rhodes would go one-on-one with “The Masterpiece” Chris Masters! In the end, it was “Dashing” Cody Rhodes hitting the Cross Rhodes on Chris Masters en route to picking up the win!
The Divas were also in action as former “co-Divas Champion” Layla, with Michelle McCool in her corner, would go one-on-one with Rosa Mendes! In the end, with some help from Michelle McCool, Layla would hit the Lay Out on Rosa Mendes en route to picking up the win! After the match, LayCool was set to beat down Rosa Mendes, but Hornswoggle would emerge from underneath the ring and, as LayCool mocked the miniature Superstar, Beth Phoenix would come out and attack both members of LayCool before the Swagger Soaring Eagle would come out and pick a fight with Hornswoggle as the Eagle would lay Hornswoggle out with a big “talon” before Beth Phoenix would get the mascot by the “wings” to deliver the Glam Slam en route to Hornswoggle hitting the Tadpole Splash on the Eagle!
Then it was time for the main event as, after two weeks of being made a fool of and having his father, Paul Bearer, narrowly escape from being freed, the World Heavyweight Champion, Kane, would finally get his hands on “The Rated-R Superstar” Edge as the two would go one-on-one in a non-title match with the winner getting to choose the stipulation for their bout for the World Heavyweight Title at WWE TLC! During the match, Kane looked to have things well in hand as the World Heavyweight Champion was set to deliver the chokeslam to Edge, but Kane’s father, Paul Bearer, would appear on the Tron and would plead with Kane to “come find” him! This would prompt Kane to exit the ring, but would have second thoughts before re-entering the ring to deal with Edge, but Edge was given valuable time to recover and would deliver the Spear to Kane en route to pinning the World Heavyweight Champion to choose the stipulation for their title match at WWE TLC! After the match, Edge tells Kane the stipulation that he chooses for WWE TLC as Kane will defend the World Heavyweight Title against Edge in Edge’s “specialty”, the TLC Match! Edge would then state that, since he got what he wanted, then Kane can have Paul Bearer back! Edge would then bring out a wheelchair containing a living person before making his exit, but Kane would excitedly approach the individual only to find out that it was an imposter of his father, Paul Bearer! Kane would react by delivering a big boot to the imposter before pummeling the faux Paul Bearer before the real Bearer appears on the Tron and is strapped to a flatbed truck, pleading for Kane’s help and Kane would rush the parking lot to find Edge quickly hopping in the truck and narrowly escaping Kane as Kane only gets his fingertips on the flatbed truck before it speeds away! What will happen when Kane meets Edge with the World Heavyweight Title on the line in a TLC Match in three weeks at WWE TLC?
