WWE RAW Opener: Sheamus vs Randy Orton
We open with a hometown girl singing the National Anthem in honor of President’s Day. Jerry Springer is the guest host tonight, Bret Hart will address the WWE Universe, and Smackdown’s Batista will be here tonight to respond to John Cena.
Sheamus’s music hits and he makes his way to the ring. Orton then comes out. The bell sounds and we’re underway. Sheamus pounds away on Orton first and then celebrates. Orton quickly turns him around into the corner and lands a couple of shots of his own. Sheamus backs him into a corner and beats him down to his knees before raising him up and hitting him with a clothesline. Orton counters one of his charges with an elbow, but Sheamus turns it around with a boot to Orton’s face and a clothesline to the back. Sheamus pins Orton, but Orton kicks out quickly. Bodyslam by Sheamus. Both men try their finishers, but each counter and Sheamus slides out of the ring for a breather.
When we’re back, Orton has control as he stomps away all over Sheamus as he’s on the mat. Ted DiBiase and Cody Rhodes unexpectedly comes out and makes their way to ringside distracting Orton. Sheamus hits a backbreaker and regains the advantage. Orton finally takes back over with a standing dropkick and a backbreaker of his own. He then gets down on his fists and starts stalking Sheamus waiting for him to get up. He tries the RKO, but Sheamus ducks out of the way again. Sheamus kicks him to the outside and follows him. Sheamus puts Orton up on his shoulder and tries to ram his shoulder into the steel post, but Orton counters and pushes him into the steel. DiBiase tries to attack Sheamus, but gets hit by Sheamus. Orton then comes from behind and the ref disqualifies Orton.
WINNER BY DQ: Sheamus
After The Match: DiBiase and Rhodes gets in the ring and try to explain to Orton that they were trying to help. Orton ends up hitting the RKO on Cody Rhodes. Sheamus comes in and hits the big boot on DiBiase and Orton hits the RKO on Sheamus leaving him as the only one standing.
We cut to Bret Hart in the back heading to the ring. That’s apparently next.
