RAW Opener:

Sheamus is out first tonight and he calls American child spoiled brats, and says they are selfish and cry to get what they want. He goes outside to the barricade and starts making fun of the kids for being lazy and not being deserving enough to be there. He says there is a bigger spoiled child in the WWE, and his name is Randy Orton. Sheamus says Night of Champions is coming up, and asks the GM to ignore Orton’s demands, and says Orton should never get another shot after what he did to Sheamus last week. 

Cole gets an email and he says the GM doesn’t have a problem with Sheamus, and he should be rewarded. Cole asks some guys to bring out a throne, and the GM says Sheamus will determine the new contender to Sheamus’ title. He will watch all of the matches and at the end of the night make a decision to his opponent at Night of Champions. Sheamus says thank you, but Cole tells him the matches start now, and Edge’s music starts to play. 

Edge vs R-Truth 

Truth ducks a clothesline and hits a hurricanrana, then knocks Edge out of the ring. Truth jumps outside but Edge dodges him then throws him into the barricade, and starts choking on the ring ropes. Truth fights out of a body stretch by Edge and runs the ropes and both men collide in the middle of the ring. Truth knocks Edge down with a flying forearm then hits a big hip toss, but does a split and walks into the Edge-O-Matic. Edge backs off and sets up for a spear in the corner, but Truth jumps over him, tries to hit a scissors kick, but Edge moves out of the way and hits a close spear for the win.

Winner – Edge

Edge grabs a mic and says Sheamus brags about who he has beaten, but until Sheamus beats him, he hasn’t beaten anyone.
