A/N: Thank you Kat and Tina for all your help! To everyone else, happy reading! Reviews are appreciated. I know it's not very long, but that's only for the introduction. It does get longer, and better :D

That was it. He was officially back. He had competed against Paul Birchill in a dark match. Much to the displeasure of Chris Jericho, his friend. In his opinion, Tyson deserved so much more.

"Hey man, it's good to have you back." World Heavyweight Champion, John Cena hugged the man known as The Problem Solver.

"Thanks, man, it's great to be back," Tyson replied, as he clapped John on the shoulder. "You know, I'm not as nervous as I thought I would be." He looked around the arena.

"Maybe because you've worked with most of us before?" he teased.

"Nah, I think you're just so glad to be back with the winners here on RAW, that you forgot about being nervous." the brown-haired man smiled.

"Winners, huh? I'm not sure how Adam would feel about that." he replied.

"See, that's the perfect example right there of a loser," John pointed. "That's why he's on Smackdown, and me and you are on RAW. Champions like me, and you, belong on RAW. I know you don't have a belt yet, but trust me, dude, you will soon. I guarantee it."

Tyson laughed. "Thanks, I appreciate that. I hope so. I'm not worried about that, though. Being champion is important to me, but I'm wrestling for the love I have for wrestling. So, uh, you gonna introduce me to the rest of the guys?"


"Awesome!" Maria yelled as she went inside the women's locker room.

The other Divas in there looked at her strangely.

"What?" Ashley Massaro asked.

"You'll never guess who I just saw!" she said, a wide smile on her face. "It just…wow. What a surprise."

"Who?" the Dirty Diva asked curiously.

"None other than the Problem Solver himself, Tyson Tomko," Maria replied, still a bit jittery. "I can't believe he's back here, in the WWE!"

"What?" Ashley asked, taken by surprise.

"Yeah, he just returned tonight. He had a dark match against Paul Burchill." Maria explained, as the Dirty Diva took it all in. "I just saw him talking with John and he told me how great it felt to be back."

"That's great!" the blonde woman smiled. "I've seen him wrestle before, and he's impressive."

"And," Maria added, "He said he wants to meet the rest of the roster later. I wonder if he'll come talk to us first?" Maria looked at her reflection in the mirror and smoothed her hair down. "Oh gosh, I'm nervous." She turned to Ashley. "Will you come with me to go see him? I don't want to go alone…..I may end up saying something really stupid. Please, Ash, come with me?"

"Um," Ashley paused, but seeing the look on her friend's face, she sighed. "Fine."

"Let's go already," Maria urged impatiently, tugging on the blonde's hair. "I want to catch him before he goes to talk to Candice or whoever."

"I don't know why he'd go to Candice first, if he has any common sense, but okay. Let's go." Ashley stood up, and followed her friend out the door.


"Well, well, well, if it isn't Tyson Tomko." Randy Orton sneered. "What, you came for round two after you found out TNA didn't want you?"

"Nice to see you too, Orton," Tomko replied coolly. "And, actually, I left TNA on good terms." He glared at the younger man. "I see you haven't changed a bit…still the same old Randy, trying to push everyone around."

Randy glared. "I don't push anyone around. I make sure people know who I am, and just how valuable I am to this company."

"By doing what? Getting others to do your dirty work?" Tyson asked.

"For your information, I have earned everything I've gotten," The Legend Killer snarled. "I'm nobody's lackey, but I can't say the same for you. You were just Christian's little lap dog, and when he got tired of you, you became nothing. So don't you dare insult me."

"Excuse me?" he asked. "I'm nothing. No, Randy, you're nothing. Everyone I've talked to has had good things to say about everyone but you. You are nothing if you don't have things like friends and family that care about you. Sure, wrestling is great, but it only gets you so far." he replied.

"Listen here, Tyson Tomko," Randy hissed, "You don't know me, and I damn sure don't want to know you. So why don't you just keep your nose out of my business and stay in the lower-card, where you belong? What I do with my life is my business, and I don't like people messing in my business."

"Which is why you're all alone." Maria, who happened to be coming inside catering with Ashley, said.

"Maria," Randy said, turning his head at the sound of the redhead's voice. "Don't you have someone to be interviewing or something?" He scowled. "Or did Tomko send you down here to stick up for him?"

"I stopped interviewing." she snapped. "And, no, he didn't. I heard he was , and stopped by to say hi. You know, a friendly thing people do. Oh, but wait, what would you know about being friendly?"

"Can you tell me how this conversation is any of your business whatsoever?" Randy replied angrily. "I was just having a conversation with Tomko, no big deal. Shouldn't you be slutting it up with the other Diva whores or something?" he spat.

"Whores? Who are you to judge us based on a stereotype we seem to have when you aren't any better than the ring rats?" Ashley stepped in.

"Can you tell me how this conversation is any of your business whatsoever?" Randy replied angrily. "I was just having a conversation with Tomko, no big deal. Shouldn't you be slutting it up with the other Diva whores or something?" he spat.

"Whores? Who are you to judge us based on a stereotype we seem to have when you aren't any better than the ring rats?" Ashley stepped in.

"Enough." John said, putting himself between the two Divas and the Legend Killer.

"What's going on here?" he asked, looking back and forth between the girls and Randy. "Is he bothering you ladies?"

Randy just stayed silent, fuming, but decided it would be better to leave.

"Anyways," Maria started. "I heard you were back Ty, and I wanted to see if the rumors were true." she smiled at the returning superstar.

"Thanks, Maria. It's good to see you. Who's your friend?" he asked, referring to Ashley

"Ashley." the blonde introduced herself as she stuck out her hand. "I'm Ashley Massaro."
