The 910th edition of WWE Monday Night RAW came to you, live, from the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Long Island, NY. As RAW heads down the road to the 24th annual Survivor Series, the legendary Pee-Wee Herman will make RAW his “Playhouse” as Pee-Wee brings his entertainment for all ages to RAW as the star of the Broadway show, “The Pee-Wee Herman Show”, would embark on his latest “Big Adventure” as the Guest Star of RAW!

Three weeks before he defends the WWE Title against Nexus leader Wade Barrett, with Special Referee, John Cena, with a Free or Fired stipulation, where, if Wade Barrett wins the WWE Title, then John Cena is freed of any obligations to The Nexus, but if Barrett does not win the WWE Title, then Cena will be fired, the show kicks off with the WWE Champion, Randy Orton! Orton states that he does not think there is a “man alive” who can take the WWE Title away from him, but if someone did, he would not be “happy” about it, but he would “accept” it, but what he would not “accept” losing the title if it was because of a “crooked referee”, especially if it happened to be John Cena! Orton then calls Cena out to the ring and states that if Cena is going to “screw” him out of the WWE Title at Survivor Series, then Cena should be “man” enough to come to the ring and tell him it to his face! John Cena wastes no time as Cena walks to the ring and explains to Orton that his “Survivor Series” is that he has to call the match “down the middle” as the Special Referee, but also has to deal with the decision that, if Wade Barrett wins the WWE Title, then he is “freed” from The Nexus, but if Barrett does not win, he will be fired before telling Orton that he does not “know” what he is going to do at Survivor Series! Orton responds by saying that it is Cena’s “bleeding heart way” of saying he will “screw” him before telling Cena that, if Cena does “screw” him over, then Cena keeps his job, but he will be the “biggest phony in the WWE”! Orton continues that, Cena obeying the orders of Wade Barrett “disrespects” every Superstar who has been WWE Champion, including John Cena! Orton then tells Cena to “get out” of his ring because Cena “does not deserve” to be in it before saying that Cena can not get out of the ring without “asking” Cena’s “master”, Wade Barrett, for “permission”! Cena responds by saying that he is an “errand boy” and that they both worked hard to get there and now he’s “getting coffee” before saying that Wade Barrett & The Nexus has got all of them “under control” because they “run the show”! Cena then admits that Barrett may have enough “skill” to compete for the WWE Title, but he will not do it “straight up”, because he is “classless” and he is the one who “does not know about respect”! Naturally, this prompts Wade Barrett & The Nexus; David Otunga, Husky Harris, Michael McGillicutty, and WWE Tag Team Champions Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel as Barrett states that, ultimately, “actions speak louder than words” and, “when push comes to shove”, Cena will obey Barrett and, at Survivor Series, Cena will “raise” his hand as the WWE Champion! Cena then tells Barrett that, regardless of the result at Survivor Series, he will leave Barrett a “parting gift” before vowing to “beat the hell” out of Barrett! Orton then states that he does not have to “wait” until Survivor Series before calling Barrett a “scared, pathetic little child who needs to stand behind seven other guys” before vowing to “beat” Barrett until he is “unconscious” and Barrett’s “stooge”, John Cena, will count and ultimately raise Orton’s hand as the WWE Champion before Orton challenges Barrett to come to the ring, by himself, and “prove” him otherwise! The anonymous General Manager of RAW then chimes with an email that states that the GM “feels” what Orton is going through regarding what Cena will do at Survivor Series and they will find out on RAW as the main event will see Barrett team with a partner of his choice to face Orton and a partner of Orton’s choosing and the Special Referee of that match will be John Cena! In a situation similar to the one he will be in at Survivor Series, what choice will John Cena make as the Special Referee in the tag team main event? Will Cena side with WWE Champion Randy Orton or will Cena be forced to help Wade Barrett win the match?
In their first match since being selected to win the WWE Tag Team Titles from John Cena & David Otunga last week, the new WWE Tag Team Champions Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel from The Nexus would face the dysfunctional Hart Dynasty in a non-title match! During the match, Tyson Kidd would dive to the outside with the intent of colliding with Justin Gabriel, but Gabriel would position David Hart Smith as the victim and Kidd would inadvertently collide with his tag team partner and this would ultimately lead to Justin Gabriel hitting the 450 Splash on Tyson Kidd en route to the WWE Tag Team Champions picking up the win! Is the relationship between The Hart Dynasty teammates repairable or have we seen the end of The Hart Dynasty?
One week after being on the losing end of a huge upset by being defeated by Santino Marella, “The Celtic Warrior” Sheamus makes an appearance and states that Santino did not beat him, he beat himself! Sheamus then states that he has given Santino a week to “bask” in his “fluke” victory before calling Santino out and an apprehensive Santino Marella comes as Santino says he respects Sheamus and says Sheamus is “good” before saying he went trick or treating on Halloween as Sheamus and people thought he was a “ghost”! Santino then states that he ate too much candy on Halloween and, if he were to have a match against Sheamus then he might “throw up” in his “face” before stating that he found Sheamus a “suitable replacement” before bringing out his tag team partner in “The Moscow Mauler” Vladimir Kozlov!
After Santino Marella backed out of facing Sheamus in a rematch from last week, Santino’s “replacement”, Vladimir Kozlov would go one-on-one with “The Celtic Warrior” Sheamus in a battle of foreign powerhouses! In the end, it was Sheamus picking up an impressive victory over Vladimir Kozlov after hitting the Brogue Kick! After the match, Sheamus would confront Santino Marella and Sheamus would back Santino back and, after Sheamus refuses to accept Santino’s offerings of candy, money, his credit card, and a check, Sheamus would catch up to Santino on the stage and was set to decimate Santino with the High Cross when John Morrison came out and delivered a pair of kicks to Sheamus, preventing a dire fate for Santino! How will Sheamus respond to John Morrison’s involvement?
Backstage, R-Truth confronts WWE Champion Randy Orton shortly after Truth had a talk with his friend, John Cena, and Truth tells Orton that he’s got a “bad feeling” that, at Survivor Series, Cena will look right into Orton’s eyes as Cena counts the pin for Wade Barrett! Orton responds by asking R-Truth to be his partner in the main event, which Truth agrees to after Orton brings up seeing how Cena treats his “friends”! What will John Cena do in the main event now that Randy Orton has selected his partner in Cena’s friend, R-Truth?
Backstage, RAW Guest Star Pee-Wee Herman is talking with Mark Henry over the injury Henry’s tag team partner, Evan Bourne, suffered at the hands of CM Punk a few weeks ago and, after giving “The World’s Strongest Man” a hug, Pee-Wee brings Eve Torres, Melina, & The Bella Twins to play Twister with Mark Henry as Pee-Wee promises the WWE fans that he is going to “take over” Monday Night RAW and vows that there will be “spills, chills, thrills, and plenty of surprises” before bringing in former Women’s Champion and legendary Diva, Lita, who the Divas offer to “help” them play Twister only for Lita and Pee-Wee to knock the Divas over! What kind of chaos does Pee-Wee Herman, and his new friend, Lita, have in store for RAW?
For the first time since his return just before Bragging Rights, the powerhouse former and final ECW Champion Ezekiel Jackson would go one-on-one with Long Island’s own Zack Ryder! Ezekiel Jackson would dominate Zack Ryder en route to planting Ryder with the Book of Ezekiel to pick up an impressive win! What awaits the seemingly unstoppable Ezekiel Jackson on RAW?
Then it was time for the arrival of the star of the Broadway show, “The Pee-Wee Herman Show”, as the legendary Pee-Wee Herman would make an appearance as the RAW Guest Star! Pee-Wee would then introduce the “secret word”, which is “ring” and whenever anyone says the “secret word”, everyone should “scream real loud”! Pee-Wee would then proclaim that he feels like a “million dollars” before being interrupted by “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” The Miz and his “apprentice”, Alex Riley, as Miz says that, while Riley likes Pee-Wee, he was more into “He-Man”! Pee-Wee responds by saying that if Miz “loves” He-Man so much, then Miz should “marry” He-Man! The Miz then tells Pee-Wee to “get out” of his “ring”, which prompts the crowd to scream! Pee-Wee then continues to use his vintage humor until The Miz threatens to beat Pee-Wee to beat Pee-Wee into a “pulp” and Pee-Wee responds by telling Miz to “not anger the Pee” before saying that he has his “cousin” there! The Miz says that he will “destroy” all members of the Herman family before Pee-Wee Herman brings out his “cousin” from SmackDown, “The World’s Largest Athlete” Big Show, who, dressed in the Pee-Wee Herman suit, shoves Miz & Riley over the top rope to the outside before the anonymous General Manager of RAW chimes in with an email that states that, since Miz said he could beat any member of the Herman family, then The Miz will face Pee-Wee’s cousin, “The Big Pee-Wee” next, which prompts Pee-Wee and his “cousin” to do the Pee-Wee dance!
In a match made by the anonymous RAW General Manager after The Miz said he could beat any member of Pee-Wee Herman’s family, “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” The Miz would go one-on-one with Pee-Wee’s “cousin”, Big Show! In the end, Big Show was on the verge of victory when Alex Riley got on the ring apron and Show would shove Miz into Riley, knocking Riley off of the apron and dropping the Money-in-the-Bank briefcase, which The Miz would attack Big Show, leading to a disqualification win for Big Show! How will Big Show respond to The Miz’s attack?
The United States Champion Daniel Bryan was then in action as Bryan would go one-on-one with “The Fortunate Son” Ted DiBiase in a non-title match! In the end, it was Ted DiBiase going for Dream Street when Daniel Bryan was able to counter the move and lock in the LeBell Lock, ultimately forcing DiBiase to tap out to win the match! After the match, Maryse would enter the ring to consul Ted DiBiase, but DiBiase would shout that he needs the Million Dollar Title to get back on track before telling Maryse that they are going to “break” up the wedding of Goldust & Aksana on NXT tomorrow night to get the Million Dollar Title back! What will happen on NXT when Ted DiBiase & Maryse crash the wedding of Goldust & Aksana?
The self-proclaimed “co-Divas Champions” LayCool then make an appearance on RAW to reveal that they will be “nice” and give the “special girl”, Natalya, another shot at the Divas Title at Survivor Series, but only if Natalya can defeat Michelle McCool! During the match, Natalya was set to lock in the Sharpshooter on Michelle McCool, when McCool narrowly escapes the ring, but Natalya would exit the ring and shove McCool down before launching McCool into Layla! Natalya would then roll Michelle McCool back into the ring and McCool would try and hit Natalya with a big boot, but Natalya would dodge the kick and McCool would inadvertently kick Layla! McCool’s concern over Layla would allow Natalya to take advantage and score the roll-up on McCool to pick up the win and, more importantly, another shot at the Divas Title at Survivor Series! Natalya seems to be more than ready to deal with either Layla or Michelle McCool, as well as any outside interference by LayCool, but can the third time be the charm for Natalya at Survivor Series?
Then, in a hospital, a doctor asks how his “favorite patient” is before saying that he is still in a “coma” before saying that the “poor guy” is going to “miss the election” before showing WWE Chairman and CEO Mr. McMahon in an apparent coma! The doctor then tells the Chairman that Mr. McMahon does not get many visitors, except for his wife, the former CEO of the WWE now campaigning for the U.S. Senate seat for the state of Connecticut, Linda McMahon, who visits Mr. McMahon every day! The doctor then mentions that Linda is very “composed”, despite the fact that she spent $50 million on her campaign and this fact makes Mr. McMahon spring into consciousness after hearing the amount of money spent! The doctor then reveals Linda’s campaign to get elected Senator of Connecticut and reveals that the Chairman’s hospital gown is covered in Linda’s campaign stickers, but the Chairman relaxes and says that he is fine with that as long as all is well in the WWE! Upon seeing the look in the face of his doctor, Mr. McMahon learns that The Undertaker was buried alive, The Nexus is now “stronger than ever” with the addition of John Cena to the group! After informing the Chairman that Paul Bearer has returned, Goldust is getting married, and RAW is being “taken over” by Pee-Wee Herman, Mr. McMahon says that the “next thing” the doctor will tell him is Daniel Bryan is the United States Champion! The Chairman then disconnects his medical tubes and wires as he has to go to the “bathroom”, but has an epiphany on the way and proclaims that, if Linda can run for the Senate, then he can run for President of the United States of America! The Chairman then continues his journey to the bathroom, revealing a banner for Linda’s opponent in the Senate race, Richard Blumenthal, fastened around his backside! The former “Billion Dollar Princess” Stephanie McMahon then abruptly wakes up and says she just had the “weirdest dream” before asking her famous thirteen-time World Champion husband if Mr. McMahon is still in a coma and the legendary Superstar says that the Chairman is still in a coma and he’s pretty sure he is “brain dead”, which puts Stephanie at ease as the Chairman’s daughter goes back to sleep!
Then it was time for the main event as WWE Champion Randy Orton would team with his hand-picked tag partner and John Cena’s friend, R-Truth, to face his Survivor Series challenger, Nexus leader Wade Barrett and Nexus member David Otunga with John Cena as the Special Referee! During the match, John Cena would be distracted by Wade Barrett and would not see the tag by Randy Orton and, thus, would not allow Orton to enter the ring, but later on the same would happen to Wade Barrett and, with Cena busy trying to get Barrett out of the ring, Orton would sneak in and plant David Otunga with the RKO and would then pummel Barrett and knock him out of the ring while R-Truth crawled and made the cover on Otunga as Cena made the three count to make Randy Orton & R-Truth the winners of the match! After the match, Wade Barrett confronts John Cena and shouts in the face and Cena calmly tells Cena that he did not see the tag before walking off! While John Cena counted the pinfall to allow Randy Orton and R-Truth to win the tag match, the same will not apply at Survivor Series as, if Wade Barrett does not win the WWE Title, then Cena will be fired from the WWE, but at the same time, Cena must call the match in a fair and impartial manner! With Survivor Series rapidly approaching, what will be the fate of the WWE Championship, as well as John Cena, come that fateful night?
