So That Happened (01/14/13)

A RAW Intro Flashback Is Shown:

Mr. McMahon is in the ring and welcomes us to RAW the only way he can.

Mr. McMahon says we’ve seen a lot of “entertainment” over the years, then tells us about RAW’s success and says the one reason RAW has been so successful is because he is a certifiable iconic genius!

Mr. McMahon puts his ego aside and thanks us for making RAW such a success. McMahon continues his speech by giving us a rundown of tonight’s show: John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler in a cage and a Rock Concert.

Before Mr. McMahon leaves, Big Show’s theme hits and he comes down to the ring. Big Show talks about losing the World Heavyweight Championship on Friday and demands “Vince” does something about it. Mr. McMahon says he doesn’t like being told what to do or interrupted or being called Vince.

Big Show changes his tune and Mr. McMahon notices that Show’s lost weight. Big Show appreciates the compliment but McMahon says the weight he was talking about was the World Heavyweight Championship.

Big Show tries to address the World Heavyweight Championship incident, but Mr. McMahon decides to show the footage of Alberto Del Rio winning the championship. Big Show runs down Booker T, the WWE Universe and Latinos until Alberto Del Rio comes out in with RicRod, who’s holding a present, and new gear.

Alberto Del Rio mocks Big Show for being a giant, but acting like a small man. Del Rio challenge Big Show to a match for the World Heavyweight Championship tonight. The crowd chants “Si!” but Big Show says “No” since he’s not prepared. Del Rio tells Big Show for once in his life, “Show some cojones, perro!”

Big Show says he’s going to have his rematch at the Royal Rumble and that at the end of the night, people will be talking about the Big Show, not the Royal Rumble winner or CM Punk vs. The Rock. Big Show tells Del Rio to enjoy his 15 minutes of fame. Del Rio brushes it off then calls Big Show a “fat jackass” in Spanish. Big Show yells at Mr. McMahon and the WWE Universe asking if this is the type of champion they want. The WWE Universe responds with a loud “Si!” Chant, which angers Big Show even further.

Alberto Del Rio tells Big Show that it’s not all bad and that he and RicRod have a present for him. Big Show sees the bucket and threatens RicRod if he pours water on Big Show’s suit. RicRod throws the bucket and it’s confetti! Big Show tries to go after RicRod, but Del Rio stops him and they start brawling. Del Rio hits Big Show with a Hurricanrana with assist from RicRod, then kicks Big Show in the head.

Dr. Shelby has one more test for Team Hell No and it’s Team Rhodes Scholars. Shelby wants Team Rhodes Scholars to cause a trigger to see how Team Hell No react to it and says it’s called “Exposure Therapy.” Damien Sandow corrects Dr. Shelby telling him it’s closer to “Systematic Desensitization.”
