The show kicked off with one of the two challengers for the WWE Championship in the Triple Threat Match at Night of Champions, "The Game" Triple H, who reminded everyone of the Guest Host concept on RAW that was implemented by Donald Trump in his one week ownership of Monday Night RAW. Triple H then introduced RAW’s special Guest Host for the evening, Seth Green. The amped up Guest Host came out and wasted no time in making decisions as Guest Host as he announced a 6-Diva Summer Swimsuit Spectacular on RAW! After showing a clip from the upcoming season premiere of his series, "Robot Chicken", that featured Triple H himself. After the clip, Green commented to Triple H about "The Game" referring to Randy Orton as a "whiny, little girl" during the production of the episode. This brings out the WWE Champion, Randy Orton. Orton gets into the ring and tells "The Game" that he has something that Triple H does not- the WWE Title. Orton then threatens Seth Green by telling Green about his "anger problems". Always one to be the bully, Orton calls the Guest Host "pathetically small". Triple H gets in the face of "The Viper" and Triple H recommends that Green make Triple H Vs. Randy Orton the main event on RAW. Orton disagrees and states that it would not be necessary for him to face Triple H since he will be beating both Triple H & John Cena at the Night of Champions. Triple H then threatens to drop Orton right then and there. Faced with this challenge, Orton decides to back off. However, before he leaves, Orton tells Seth Green that the only reason that he is the Guest Host on RAW is so that someone might accidentally mistake him for a man. After being called "pathetically small" and having his manhood questioned, Green stopped Orton and informed the WWE Champion that Orton & Legacy would be facing the team of Triple H & John Cena in the main event! Not only that, but Triple H & John Cena would have a tag team partner, none other than Seth Green himself! Does Seth Green realize what he has gotten himself into? Could Green possibly survive the night in one piece?
As announced by Guest Host, Seth Green, RAW had a 6-Diva Summer Swimsuit Spectacular where the team of Divas Champion Maryse, Rosa Mendes, & Alicia Fox defeated the team of the #1 Contender for the Divas Title, Mickie James, Gail Kim, & Kelly Kelly with Maryse getting the pin on her #1 Contender. Can "The French Vixen" hang on to her Divas Title at Night of Champions or will Mickie James win the gold?
Backstage, Seth Green is confronted by one-half of the Unified Tag Team Champions, Chris Jericho. The always unhappy Chris Jericho calls the Guest Host a "hypocrite" and a "drone". Green responds by telling Jericho that, if he is going to talk to him like that, then Jericho should leave; maybe even leave the arena. Jericho refuses and says that he has "something to say" and he will say it whether Green likes it or not. What will Jericho have to say? Will it be about the future of the Unified Tag Team Titles now that his partner, Edge, is injured?
In the ring, an emotional Primo calls out his older brother, Carlito, to address the attack he received from Carlito last week. However, Primo did not get Carlito, instead he got his opponent, The Miz, who calls Primo the "rejected brother". The end of the match came when Carlito made his way to ringside and distracted his younger brother long enough for The Miz to pick up the win over Primo. After the match was over, Carlito stood over Primo and spit in the face of his younger brother! What is the cause of this sudden hatred for his little brother? How will Primo respond to Carlito’s actions?
Backstage, RAW’s Guest Host, Seth Green, informs Hornswoggle that Hornswoggle will be having a rematch against Chavo Guerrero on RAW! Green told the worried Hornswoggle that Chavo will have one hand tied behind his back in the match!
Following their intense confrontation in The VIP Lounge last week, MVP and Jack Swagger faced off on RAW. In the end, it was "The All-American American" Jack Swagger hitting his signature powerbomb and pinning "The Ballin’ Superstar" to pick up the win.
Unified Tag Team Champion Chris Jericho then comes out and addresses Edge’s injury and the status of the Unified Tag Team Titles. Jericho proclaims that he is the sole holder of the Unified Tag Team Titles for the time being. Jericho wastes no time in turning on his, now, former partner by calling Edge "fragile" and saying that he was the "weak link" of the team. Jericho stated that he can not defend the Unified Tag Team Titles by himself against Legacy at the Night of Champions, nor will he be reliquishing the championship. Jericho then shows the contract for the title match at Night of Champions and he reveals that he put a stipulation in the contract that allowed him to pick a "replacement" for Edge in the event that Edge is injured! Jericho said that he would announce Edge’s "replacement" at the Night of Champions and that his new partner would be someone who shares many of the same characteristics that he possesses. "The World’s Strongest Man" Mark Henry comes out and tells Jericho that they would be a "great team", but he did not come out there to be Jericho’s partner. Henry then reveals that he came out there to be Jericho’s opponent! Mark Henry then attacked Jericho and knocked Jericho out of the ring! A referee then entered the ring. It was later revealed that Seth Green had made the match between the two after Jericho disrespected the Guest Host earlier on. After much hesitation, Chris Jericho got into the ring with "The World’s Strongest Man" and the match began. However, Jericho opted to leave the ring and take the count-out loss as opposed to facing Mark Henry. For the second week in a row, Mark Henry has intimidated his opponent to the point where the opposition decided to get intentionally counted out. What’s next for "The World’s Strongest Man"? Who will step up and face Henry?
"The Mexican Warrior" Chavo Guerrero was forced to tie one hand behind his back when he faced Hornswoggle. For the second time in a row, Chavo was embarassed with a loss to Hornswoggle.
With United States Champion Kofi Kingston on commentary, Evan Bourne faced the almost impossible task of chopping the down the giant redwood that is Big Show. Big Show absolutely demolished the high-flier; nearly splitting Bourne in half with a half-ton Spear. Big Show then locked in his modified Camel Clutch, which he now calls the "Colossal Clutch", and forced the much smaller Evan Bourne to submit. After the match, Big Show refused to release the hold on Bourne, which prompted Kofi Kingston to intervene. Kofi actually got Big Show to not only release the hold, but Kofi kicked Big Show right out of the ring! What will happen when these two go one-on-one this Thursday on WWE Superstars? Will "The World’s Largest Athlete" Big Show destroy Kofi Kingston like he did Evan Bourne or will the United States Champion find a way to take down the behemoth?
Before the Guest Host of RAW, Seth Green, climbed into the ring in the main event, it was announced that next week’s Guest Hosts will be two of the most recognizable men with two of the most recognizable beards in the world, none other than a pair of "sharp dressed men" ZZ Top! What will happen when the legendary rock duo are in charge of Monday Night RAW?
Then it was time for the 6-Man Tag main event as WWE Champion Randy Orton & Legacy squared off with the team of Triple H, Randy Orton, and RAW’s Guest Host, Seth Green. Needless to say, it was Triple H & John Cena’s job to keep Seth Green out of the match and out of harm’s way. However, after Legacy and John Cena fought to the outside, Randy Orton delivered the RKO to Triple H. It looked like Randy Orton would pin "The Game" until Triple H received an unlikely assist from Seth Green! The actor/comedian broke up the pinfall attempt and was quickly face-to-face with "The Viper" Randy Orton! After a kick to the mid-section, Orton was prepared to punt the skull of Seth Green like he had done so many others. Fortunately for Green, John Cena quickly saved the Guest Host by attacking Orton. Among the fray, Cody Rhodes brings a steel chair into the ring to help out his mentor, but Triple H comes in with his trusty sledgehammer and knocks the chair out of Rhodes’ hands! Triple H then narrowly missed blasting John Cena in the head with the sledgehammer! Triple H and John Cena stared at each other until Seth Green came back into the ring and all three celebrated the survival of Seth Green and getting the better of Randy Orton & Legacy. What will happen next week on the last stop before the Night of Champions? What will happen when ZZ Top is in charge of Monday Night RAW next week?
