So That Happened: 10/07/13

RAW starts off with Stephanie McMahon

Stephanie McMahon says that last night the WWE Championship match with Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton was ruined. Stephanie understands that the WWE Universe is angry because not only is she angry, but so are Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton and it’s all because of the actions of one selfish man: Big Show. Stephanie McMahon orders Big Show to come to the ring.

Big Show tries to explain himself, but Stephanie McMahon tells him to shut up.

Stephanie McMahon tells Big Show that she knows he’s been under a lot of pressure lately at home and at work, and says when Big Show is under pressure, he makes bad decisions, but his actions at Battleground were unexcuseable. Stephanie calls Big Show out on his mistakes then asks what he has to say for himself and Big Show says…

That’s not what he actually says, but that would’ve been awesome. Big Show says “Sorry.” Stephanie McMahon mocks his apology then calls him a sorry, pathetic excuse of life. Stephanie McMahon reminds Big Show of all the things the McMahons have done for him. Stephanie says it’s no wonder that Big Show is broke because he can’t manage his finances, his career and he can’t even manage himself.

Stephanie tells Big Show that all they’ve asked Big Show to do his do his job, but says he can’t do that. Stephanie McMahon says it’s time for Big Show to man up and take responsibility for his actions. Big Show responds with “Okay. Can I go now?”

Stephanie McMahon pokes Big Show and says that he can’t go yet.

Stephanie McMahon reminds Big Show that the McMahons don’t just own his home, they own Big Show and that he doesn’t have the right to free will. Stephanie says that Big Show doesn’t do anything in this company unless she and her husband personally approve it.

Stephanie McMahon demands that Big Show get down on his knees and beg for forgiveness. Big Show doesn’t do it and Stephanie calls him worthless and says he doesn’t have a heart or soul.

Big Show laughs it off then says he’s not begging and tells Stephanie McMahon that he knocked out Randy Orton because he couldn’t take it anymore. As for Daniel Bryan, he knocked him out because Stephanie told him to.

Stephanie McMahon claims Big Show is trying to twist the story around and blame Brad Maddox, but Big Show says that Brad Maddox is a puppet that works for her and her “son of a bitch” husband, Triple H.

Stephanie McMahon slaps Big Show several times and asks him if he’s gonna cry as Big Show laughs it off. Stephanie McMahon asks Big Show what he’s gonna do about it, then says he’s gonna do nothing because he’s fired!

Big Show walks off having no problem with being fired.
