WWE RAW Opener: Randy Orton, Jesse Ventura
Justin Roberts opens the show by announcing tonight’s guest host, Jesse Ventura, but rather than Ventura coming out, Randy Orton’s music hits and he enters the ring. Orton says that he knows the normal routine is for the guest host to come out and get interrupted by someone, but he doesn’t care. He knows that Ventura has a major announcement tonight about the WWE Heavyweight Championship and although he’s not supposed to face John Cena for the title anymore, the guest host has the power to lift his ban so he can face Cena for the belt. He continues pleading his case by saying he deserves the title more than anyone else and he asks the governor to come out and do the right thing. Jesse Ventura’s music hits and he comes out to the ring.
Jesse says that "The Body" is back and he’s dressed like pro wrestling, not like a governor. He addresses Orton and says that he respects him and likes his "style". He says that Orton reminds him of him from back when he was younger. He says that since he’s the governor of revolution, he’s going to bring something completely new to the WWE tonight. He says Orton is "not" going to give Orton a title shot. He says that week after week, the same people get a shot at the title and it’s time to change that. He starts naming the main stars like Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and Jericho saying that none of them will get the title shot. There will be a series of matches tonight to qualify for a "break-through battle royal" and the winner of that will be the number one contender. However, no former champion can be apart of the tournament.
Orton says that Ventura is making a big mistake. Ventura then says that he’s made plenty of mistakes, but it still remains that what he says goes. He then goes on to announce that John Cena will be taking on CM Punk. He puts over that they’ve never wrestled before. He also says that D-X will fight the Hart Dynasty and they’ve never wrestled before. He then puts over the tournament again and announces that the first match starts now. Kofi’s music hits and he heads out to the ring. Orton meets him up the entrance way and they stare each other down, but Orton continues to the back and no physical confrontation occurs.
