Big Show and Chris Jericho came out to the ring with the Trophy from last night. Big Show said it didn?t matter what he did last night, he was a proud member of Raw. Jericho said he didn?t need to explain it to ?these people?. He said he understood that Big Show did it because their friendship was more important. Show said he had something to say, but Jericho cut him off and thanked him more. Jericho kept on going while Big Show couldn?t get a word in edge-wise. Show said what he did he did for him. He said there’s one thing that was more important to him than anything else and that was his career. He said he could be on both shows and he struck a deal. He said because Smackdown won Bragging Rights, he won himself a title shot against the Undertaker for the World Heavyweight Championship.
Jericho was upset and said nothing got approved by him. They bickered back and forth before they were interrupted by two NASCARS blowing doughnuts in the parking garage before they drove into the arena. Kyle Bush and Joey Lagano got out of their cars and made their way to the ring as the Bella Twins escorted to them to the ring. The two got on the mic and expressed their displeasure at what happened last night. Bush seemed to play heel and he congratulated Big Show. He said Joey was young and dumb and obviously didn?t know anything about championships. Joey fired back and the two went back and forth. Big Show would have to face Triple H tonight and Kofi Kingston will face Chris Jericho. The two really struggled to deliver their lines.. Kofi Kingston is now ?Kofi Johnston?. Yikes. Great from a content point of view, but these two couldn?t deliver it.

He put over how important the match was. Cena started making fun of them. He wants to know how long they?ve been running around in circles. People are tired of seeing the same stuff. John Cena said he earned the right to say ?no more?. He said whoever wanted a shot at his title could get one, but they had to earn it.

He understood the terms of his terms last night, but he didn?t care. He said he?d do whatever he had to do to get back what was his. Kofi Kingston interrupted him on the titan tron. He said Orton lost and no one cared what he had to say.
He was with Orton’s NASCAR and totally destroyed it, keying it, caving in the windshield, hitting it with a crowbar and dumping paint on it. Safe to say they have butt hurt.
