Here are the results to tonight’s Monday night Raw, one night after the TLC PPV.
Courtesy of PWInsider.com:
Last night, an era in WWE ended when we went from two main champions to a single Unified Super Duper Champion. Randy Orton is the man to shoulder that burden thanks to his victory on Sunday night. How with the Unified Era begin?
We are in Dallas, Texas and your announcers are Michael ‘Cuban’ Cole, John ‘Hull’ Layfield, and Jerry ‘Dealey Plaza’ Lawler.
Triple H’s music plays while the WWE roster is on the stage and Stephanie McMahon and Triple H are in the ring.
Stephanie says that this is a historic episode of Raw. It is time for everyone in the arena, on the stage, and anyone who will ever don tights will need to show respect to one man.
Hunter says that the history of WWE merged with the bright future at TLC. We are here tonight to pay honor to that man.
Randy Orton makes his way to the ring with a championship belt on each shoulder. He stops next to Daniel Bryan and John Cena and he raises both belts over his head.
Randy says that it is nice feeling when your faith was rewarded. He says that no one had faith in him that he would win the most important match in WWE history. Everyone bought into the lie that he had been handed everything his entire career. He proved that when an opportunity presents itself, he takes it. He did it when he ascended the ladder and took those two championships and turned them into one.
Last week, he stood in this ring with twenty other former champions. None of them have accomplished what he has accomplished. When he looks at the locker room on the stage, beaming back their jealousy at him, where they are is appropriate because he is so much better than everyone.
Randy says that he is the most powerful person standing in the ring. He is the Champion of Champions. He is the World Heavyweight Champion.
John Cena calls him an idiot and Randy wants his mic turned off.
John says that he is not going to ruin Randy’s moment. John says that he will give the Cliff’s Notes of what Orton was going to say. Champion of Champions, Apex Predator. Viper Viper Viper, Handcuffs.
John says that he saved everyone twenty minutes. He congratulates Randy and says that he was the better champion last night. That champion forces you to put up or shut up every night. He says that Randy has talked enough so put up or shut up.
Orton says that he does not get his rematch tonight.
John says he was not talking about him. He really wants to be WWE World Heavyweight Champion. He told someone that he would give that person a fair rematch if he won the title. John says that Randy should face Daniel Bryan.
Randy says that he does not care what people think and he wants security to kick out Cena.
John says that there is no better way to prove his legacy than to face Daniel Bryan.
Randy says that he does not have to listen to John Cena, Daniel Bryan, or the idiots in the stands. He does not have to listen to anybody.
Stephanie tells Randy that he has to listen to them.
Randy says that he is not trying to lose his temper. He says that John is way out of line. To give Daniel Bryan a title shot is not what is best for business.
Hunter tells Randy that he agrees with Randy at this time. Daniel does not deserve an opportunity for a title match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Stephanie says that Daniel was voted Superstar of the Year. Hunter says that they listen to the WWE Universe. If that is a match that the people would like to see.
Randy says that he went through a war and was in a TLC match last night.
Hunter says that there is no better way to kick off the Champion of Champions’ new era with a main event like this.
Randy will get to silence the critics who say that Randy cannot beat this man. Randy Orton will face the Superstar of the Year.
We had a vote on WWE.com to see which of the three teams who were defeated on Sunday will face the Tag Team Champions. That will be next.

The Shield will make excuses for their loss and they will say it is far from over. This isn’t about The Shield. It has never been about the Shield.

The crowd chants for ‘One More Match’ and Punk says that he will have more than one match. He respects Shawn and that is why he is getting a pass for last week. Fifteen Year old Punk is excited that Shawn gave him a super kick. He can get past the assless chaps but if Shawn kicks him again, he will fight back.
