    Raw RAW – 18th October 2010 – Calgary, Alberta, Canada



    RAW – 18th October 2010 – Calgary, Alberta, Canada


    Security Alert

    We start tonight’s show with a video package highlighting what happened at the end of last week’s show when Jack Swagger delivered a low blow and then a Gutwrench powerbomb to his Cyber Sunday challenger, Triple H in their contract signing for the WWE Championship contest in Minneapolis this Sunday. The final image is Swagger standing over the fallen Triple H holding his WWE Championship aloft.

    We then cut to the RAW opening video featuring all of the WWE Superstars before we go into the arena in and pyro shoots from the stage with the trademark RAW music. The camera finally lands on Michael Cole and Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler at ringside.


    Cole:
    We welcome you to Monday Night RAW everyone and we are just six days away from Cyber Sunday and what a night it is going to be here in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with everyone looking to gain momentum before the most interactive pay per view of the year. Our main event is going to be huge King as the WWE Champion, Jack Swagger goes one-on-one with none other than The Viper, Randy Orton.
    King:
    It is going to be a collision Michael and you have to believe RAW Co-General Manager, Vickie Guerrero will be close by her client Swagger ensuring nothing untoward happens to him just days before his WWE Championship defence against Triple H. If I was Swagger I would be watching over my shoulder tonight after his actions on last week’s edition of Monday Night RAW.
    Cole:
    Without doubt. Swagger attacking Triple H last week and putting him through a table with the Gutwrench Powerbomb may not have been the best decision he could have made for his future as WWE Champion or as a member of the RAW roster. And speaking of Triple H, listen to this place. Here comes The Game!!!

    The number one contender for the WWE Championship storms out onto the entrance ramp with his trademark music playing. Triple H is dressed in jeans with his merchandise t-shirt and a leather jacket over the top on as the crowd cheer loudly for the future Hall of Famer. Triple H looks all business today and there is none of the usual taunting when he gets to the ring or spitting water into the crowd. Triple H has a microphone in hand as the crowd continue to cheer for him.

    The Game – Triple H:
    Jack Swagger, I’m not waiting until Cyber Sunday. Get your ass out here right now!

    The crowd erupt as Triple H has not wasted any time in making it clear what he wants from his time in the ring at the start of RAW after what happened on last week’s show. The crowd start chanting his name but there is no answer from the WWE Champion.

    The Game – Triple H:
    Alright, if you’re not going to come out here and face me like a man I’m going to come back there and if it’s the last thing I do I’m going to teach you a lesson in respect you son of a bitch.

    The crowd pop huge for the intense Triple H as he is determined to get his hands on Swagger. The Game leaves the ring and begins to walk up the ramp when we here a piercing shrill voice which can mean only one thing.

    RAW Co-General Manager – Vickie Guerrero:
    EXCUSE ME!!!

    The crowd give Vickie Guerrero monstrous heat. She wasn’t seen last week after being decked with a Chick Kick by her counterpart Trish Stratus two weeks ago on RAW and she has security all around her. Vickie looks like she is on a mission to reassert her control over the number one contender for the WWE Championship.

    RAW Co-General Manager – Vickie Guerrero:
    Just who in the hell do you think you are? I’m Vickie Guerrero, the Co-General Manager of RAW and I will not have the WWE Champion targeted by a lunatic who thinks he is running the place. I said EXCUSE ME!

    The crowd boo Vickie horrendously yet again as Triple H still looks intense as ever at the bottom of the stage. Vickie eventually continues her train of thought.

    RAW Co-General Manager – Vickie Guerrero:
    Now tonight Jack Swagger, the most dominant WWE Champion RAW has witnessed in years takes on none other than The Viper, Randy Orton in the main event and that match will take place. Triple H you will not get involved and that is why I have these lovely gentlemen out here with me. Triple H you have the night off and it is up to you. You can leave voluntarily or security will escort you out of the building. What’s it going to be?

    Security now walk down the stage towards Triple H and it is clear how this scene is going to end. Triple H actually offers to leave peacefully but then a member of the security put their hands on the number one contender for the WWE Championship and all hell breaks loose! The Game throws right hands at all of the security guards. He throws the first two either side of him into the barricade wall before nearly breaking the jaw of another one with a humungous clothesline. There are still three more but he kicks one in the gut, clotheslines another and back body drops the last one onto the entrance ramp! Vickie Guerrero realises her plan is backfiring and is frantically waving her arms for backup to come and stop Triple H.

    And here comes the rest of the RAW roster!! The likes of Carlito, Chris Masters, Tyler Reks, Vance Archer, Yoshi Tatsu, Zack Ryder, Scotty 2 Hotty, Chavo Guerrero, Santino Marella, Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin all come out and stop Triple H in his tracks. The sheer numbers are enough to end the onslaught of the Cerebral Assassin as Vickie Guerrero’s concern turns into a big smile. The superstars of RAW hold Triple H back as none other than the WWE Champion, Jack Swagger steps out onto the stage. The crowd boo loudly, giving the man from Oklahoma huge heat as Triple H can do nothing to get his hands on his rival. Triple H is dragged past Swagger and Vickie through the curtain as the crowd continue to boo loudly and the All American American raises the WWE Championship high above his head as RAW goes to its first commercial break of the evening.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Cole:
    Welcome back to RAW everyone and what a start to the show which has seen none other than the number one contender for the WWE Championship, Triple H kicked out of the building by RAW Co-General Manager, Vickie Guerrero. And The Game has been warned to not get involved in the main event between WWE Champion, Jack Swagger and Randy Orton tonight or face the consequences.
    King:
    And Hunter would be a wise man to listen to the warnings Vickie is handing out as she seems to be on the warpath tonight and who can blame her? Two weeks ago she was nearly decapitated by a Chick Kick by fellow RAW Co-GM, Trish Stratus. Man I cannot wait for Swagger and Triple H to beat the living daylights out of each other at Cyber Sunday this week. Minneapolis is going to be rocking Cole.
    Cole:
    It certainly is but we have barely begun here tonight and it is now time to get some in-ring action started on Monday Night RAW. Oh! That explosion can mean only one man. Here comes the Big Red Machine, Kane!

    Fire explodes from the stage and here comes Kane. The Big Red Machine walks with a purpose to the ring and looks intense as ever just days before Cyber Sunday. The monster stands in the ring and adjusts his glove as he awaits his opponent who has been on a roll as of late. None other than Kofi Kingston enters in his usual cheerful way and he is confident of success against Kane it seems. Kofi has beaten the WWE Champion, Jack Swagger and Mr Money in the Bank, Chris Jericho in recent weeks. Kingston steps in the ring with Kane opposite him and we are underway.


    SINGLES MATCH
    Kane vs. Kofi Kingston


    Kofi immediately goes on the front foot and tries to take the big man down to the canvas with kicks to the knees, a big dropkick and a number of chops. Kane proves to be too big though and in the end it is Kingston who is on the receiving end of a MASSIVE BOOT to the face which completely puts the Big Red Machine in control just days before his match with the Big Show at Cyber Sunday. Kane tosses Kofi around the ring like a ragdoll showing his strength and power almost trying to prove a point to the World’s Largest Athlete by completely annihilating his opponent. Kingston tries to throw punches and kicks when he can but Kane just has too much power for him to deal with. Kofi jumps at Kane but he is caught and dropped to the canvas once again with a big SIDEWALK SLAM. Kane hooks the leg; 1… 2… Kofi Kingston kicks out and keeps the match alive. Kane just smirks that Kingston hasn’t given up and clearly has more destruction on his mind.

    Kane picks up Kofi and powerfully Irish whips the man from Ghana, West Africa into the turnbuckle. He runs after his opponent and clotheslines him hard in the corner before repeating the feat in the opposite corner. Kane now takes a look at his opponent and continues his punishment with a number of punches and a massive uppercut which jacks the jaw of Kingston. Kane then grabs Kofi and delivers a perfect SUPLEX again showing off his superior power against the former WWE Tag Team, United States and Intercontinental Champion. But Kane suddenly gives Kingston an opening when he starts berating the referee after he is told to stop punching his opponent repeatedly when he is defenceless on the canvas. Kofi slowly gets to his feet and starts connecting with some big kicks. He goes for a big roundhouse kick but Kane catches the foot and this doesn’t look good for Kingston. But suddenly he knocks the Big Red Machine loopy with a huge ENZUIGIRI!

    This is Kofi’s moment to start building some momentum and he doesn’t make any mistake in doing so. Kofi sits on the turnbuckle with Kane right next to him, leaps and delivers a tremendous TORNADO DDT which takes the big man down. Kofi goes for the quick cover; 1… 2… Kane easily kicks out but Kingston doesn’t waste any time and is quick like a cat in climbing to the top rope. Kane groggily gets to his feet and Kofi leaps taking the monster back down with a huge CROSSBODY! 1… 2… Again Kane kicks out much to the frustration of the spring-loaded superstar. Kofi stomps away at the much bigger man to ensure he stays on the canvas before he runs off the ropes, pauses and does his usual taunt, hitting the BOOM DROP!! Kingston is rolling as he now feels that he could be close to putting away another huge Monday Night RAW superstar. Kofi waits in the corner and does his usual taunt waiting for Kane to get to his feet. He eventually does as Kingston goes for TROUBLE IN PARADISE!!! But Kane has it well scouted, sidesteps and as Kofi turns around he is taken out with another BIG BOOT!

    Kofi’s head is nearly taken off his body with the impact and Kane now turns from his evil smile to a sadistic smirk which can mean things are not going to end well for Kingston. Kane looks at his limp body on the mat and grabs him by the throat. Then in one fluid movement, the Big Red Machine lifts Kofi Kingston up high in the air and brings him back down to the canvas with a huge CHOKESLAM!!! Kane again smirks sadistically as he opts against pinning his opponent. The crowd boo loudly as Kingston lays motionless with the referee checking on him. But Kane isn’t done as he gets Kingston to his feet once again and grabs him by the throat. Kane plants Kofi Kingston with a massive second CHOKESLAM!!! Kane now hooks the leg and this one is academic. 1… 2… 3!
    Spoiler:

    Winner: Kane


    Cole:
    Kane picks up a big win as he gets set to take on the Big Show this Sunday at Cyber Sunday and what a victory that was. He delivered a massive TWO Chokeslams to Kofi Kingston and ended his good winning streak of late on RAW. Kingston tried his best to put up a good fight but Kane was on a mission here tonight and there was nothing he could do. Will it be the same this Sunday though King?
    King:
    Well it could quite possibly be. Kane has been running through the competition of late and both he and the Big Show think RAW is only big enough for one dominant giant. I think they’re going to need to reinforce the ring this Sunday in Minneapolis. Kane was dominant here tonight.
    Cole:
    And it doesn’t look like he is done for the evening yet as he has a microphone in hand in the centre of the ring. You’ve got to believe he has a message for the Big Show.

    The Big Red Machine - Kane:
    Big Show, this Sunday is your day of reckoning. Monday Night RAW is not big enough for the two of us and I will prove there is only one monster in the WWE. Whether I make you quit, inflict absolute punishment on you with whatever weapon I choose or set you on fire there will only be one outcome. Big Show, you will become my statement. The Big Red Monster is here to rule over RAW and anyone who steps in my way will be eviscerated. There is only one true giant and you will find out you have messed with the wrong man at Cyber Sunday. So Big Show I’m telling you, do NOT turn up for our match because I am going to end your career.

    And after I do that, I’m coming for one thing; the WWE Championship.

    With that Kane drops the microphone and does his usual taunt as fire explodes from all four turnbuckles and the stage is set for his match against the Big Show this Sunday at Cyber Sunday. These two monsters will finally collide after weeks of trying to demolish one another.



    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Cole:
    Welcome back to RAW everyone and Kane made a big statement before the commercial break. After beating Kofi Kingston he sent a warning to the Big Show before their match at Cyber Sunday saying he was going to end the giant’s career. And after that Kane has his focuses on none other than the WWE Championship. If I was Jack Swagger I’d be very worried.
    King:
    Well he might not need to be worried Cole as Swagger has a tough match of his own this Sunday against The Game, Triple H. Kane will no doubt target whoever comes out of that match with the title but he needs to focus on Big Show first and foremost. The World’s Largest Athlete is no slouch and I think Kane’s comments will only serve to anger him.
    Cole:
    Well it is now time for some more in-ring action on Monday Night RAW with the DIVA’s set to take it to the ring. The DIVA’s Champion, Mickie James is set to team up with Eve Torres to take on Melina and Alicia Fox who are both looking to impress the fans here tonight. One of the two or Gail Kim will take on James for the title this Sunday in Minneapolis with the WWE Universe deciding who it will be.

    Melina is first to enter and she gets a mixed reaction with many of the males in the audience cheering her for the trademark entrance and at how hot she looks in her purple and black attire this evening. Her tag team partner Alicia Fox gets a negative reaction from the WWE Universe but she just completely ignores them as she is clearly focused on the task in hand this evening. Eve Torres is first to enter for the opposite time and gets a lukewarm reaction at best. But things completely change when none other than Mickie James enters to a massive pop from the Calgary crowd. Mickie taunts with the DIVA’s Championship before this tag team contest gets started.


    TAG TEAM MATCH
    Melina & Alicia Fox vs. Mickie James & Eve Torres


    Melina and Mickie James lock up to start the match which has the crowd excited as they are clearly the two biggest names in the contest. Melina trash talks the DIVA’s Champion and says she will win the title at Cyber Sunday but Mickie just smirks as the two lock up and start throwing big forearms at one another. Neither woman is able to get the better of the other until Melina Irish whips Mickie who ducks under a clothesline attempt and takes down one of her potential opponents with a LOU THESZ PRESS on the rebound. Mickie hammers away at Melina before the referee pulls her off Melina. The DIVA’s Champion follows up with some nice kicks before using a SNAPMARE to get Melina in position for a big DROPKICK to the back of her head. Mickie quickly covers; 1… 2… Melina kicks out and refuses to be beaten this early in the match. Mickie maintains focus and drags her opponent over to the corner and tags in Eve Torres who gets a pleasant response from the crowd.

    Eve comes in and stomps away at Melina before getting her to her feet and Irish whipping her into the turnbuckle. Torres runs and connects with a big CORNER CLOTHESLINE before taking Melina down with a perfectly executed SWINGING NECKBREAKER as she goes for a pin. 1… 2… Melina gets the shoulder up and will still not be beaten. Eve senses she is well on top in the match and gets the Paparazzi Princess up to her feet as she connects with a couple of chops which the Calgary crowd enjoy. Eve kicks but Melina catchers her foot and this doesn’t end well for Torres as she delivers a brutal LARIAT which absolutely floors the DIVA. But Melina doesn’t pin as she is aware she has taken a lot of damage in the match and instead slowly makes her way to the corner to tag in none other than Alicia Fox.

    The woman who could become the DIVA’s Champion this weekend comes in on fire taking out Eve with a couple of clotheslines before she connects with a spine-rattling TILT-A-WHIRL BACKBREAKER. The ring shakes with the impact of the move but Alicia has no mercy and after only getting a two count from a pin attempt focuses once again. She gets Eve to her feet and takes her down with a beautiful NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX into a bridging pin position; 1…… 2…… Eve shows some resilience in kicking out. Alicia smirks as she is well on top in the match and Eve is getting back to her feet but is in perfect position for the SCISSORS KICK! Alicia goes for it but Eve avoids and stumbles backwards to her corner where Mickie James makes the blind tag. Alicia turns around oblivious and grabs hold of Eve but out of nowhere gets nailed with the MICK KICK! 1…… 2…… 3! Mickie James pins Alicia Fox just like that before Melina can get in the ring and do anything to stop it.
    Spoiler:

    Winners: Mickie James & Eve Torres


    After the match Mickie James and Eve are quickly up the ramp as Melina and Alicia Fox look angry and agitated in the ring. The commentators hype how the DIVA’s Champion is rolling going into Cyber Sunday and how Melina and Alicia Fox may have been teammates here tonight but come Sunday they will both want votes from the WWE Universe. The final shot is Eve Torres raising the hand of Mickie James at the top of the entrance ramp as she holds the DIVA’s Championship aloft.



    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    We head backstage where we are taken inside RAW Co-General Manager Vickie Guerrero’s office and she is deep in conversation with WWE Champion, Jack Swagger ahead of his one-on-one bout with Randy Orton in tonight’s main event just days before the All American American puts his title on the line against Triple H at Cyber Sunday.

    WWE Champion – Jack Swagger:
    Vickie, are you sure about this? I mean I’ve got no problem facing Randy Orton. We all know I am better than him inside that ring and you’ll be ringside with me. But Triple H will be doing everything he can to get back in the building. I mean have we really got enough security to stop him?

    RAW Co-General Manager – Vickie Guerrero:
    Jack, trust me. We’ve got this covered. Step one of the plan was successful, now we just need to follow through and make sure we do the rest of the job tonight. Jack you worry about Randy Orton and I’ll deal with the rest. Before long we will get exactly what we want.

    WWE Champion – Jack Swagger:
    Alright Vickie I’m trusting you. You better make this work.

    With that Jack Swagger walks out of Vickie Guerrero’s office with the Co-General Manager not looking very pleased with the threat from the WWE Champion. The camera then fades and lands on the commentary team who hype up the main event once again which will see Swagger take on Randy Orton just days from Cyber Sunday.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The music of Chris Jericho hits and Mr Money in the Bank makes his way down to the ring to a series of boos from the sold out crowd. The ring is set up with a television screen and some stalls which can mean only one thing; it is time for an edition of the Highlight Reel. Y2J gets in the ring and has a microphone in hand. He finally begins to speak as the WWE Universe stop giving him heat.

    Mr Money in the Bank – Chris Jericho:
    Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the Highlight Reel!

    The crowd boo loudly but Jericho just carries on anyway.

    Mr Money in the Bank – Chris Jericho:
    Tonight, I will have three guests who could be fighting for the United States Championship at Cyber Sunday this Sunday. So let’s not waste any more time as frankly I can’t wait to get away from you gelatinous tapeworms here in the Canadian hell-hole known as Calgary.

    Immense heat for Jericho with his anti-Calgary comments but they flip completely when the music of the United States Champion, Matt Hardy hits and he makes his way to the ring. Hardy is dressed to compete and has the title strapped around his waist as he smiles and takes in the huge ovation he receives. Hardy steps between the ropes and stares straight at Jericho, clearly not trusting him one bit.

    Mr Money in the Bank – Chris Jericho:
    Matt, welcome to the Highlight Reel and what I want to know is how does it feel? How does it feel to receive all this adulation from the fans? How does it feel to be cheered each and every single night because you finally won the United States Championship? I mean how many times did it take? And what makes it even more ludicrous is you could very well lose that title at Cyber Sunday.

    United States Champion – Matt Hardy:
    Woah, woah, woah Chris! Hold on for just one second. I earned every shot I got at this title and you’ll be lucky if you ever receive the love I do from these fans.

    Mr Money in the Bank – Chris Jericho:
    You think I need the approval of these stupid idiots?! I’m Mr Money in the Bank and I will be the next WWE Champion.

    United States Champion – Matt Hardy:
    Chris, these fans will make sure I get what I deserve and at Cyber Sunday I will beat Christian and I will beat Lance Cade in a Triple Threat Match if these fans decide they want the US Title to be defended in the bonus match at the pay per view.

    Before we can go any further the music of Christian hits as he walks out in a suit looking extremely smart with microphone in hand. He starts speaking as he gets half way down the ramp.

    Captain Charisma – Christian:
    Matt, how many times do I have to tell you. You’re not on my level. The only reason you are standing there right now with the United States Championship is because you got lucky in a Ladder Match. In any match that doesn’t use weapons there is no comparison between me and you and you know it.

    Mr Money in the Bank – Chris Jericho:
    Christian everyone! A man who has all the peeps in the palm of his hand and makes a good point Matt. When was the last time you won a match by yourself without any special stipulations to help you?

    United States Champion – Matt Hardy:
    Jericho you better watch yourself. You keep running your mouth and I’ll drop you with a Twist of Fate!

    Before anything can go any further a very familiar voice is heard as the crowd immediately start booing loudly at the slimy tone of none other than The Advocate, Paul Heyman.

    The Advocate – Paul Heyman:
    Ladies and gentleman, my name is Paul Heyman and I am the advocate of the Next Big Thing, the Ruthless Redneck and your next United States Champion, LANCE CADE!

    Lance Cade comes out from the back to stand next to Heyman looking as intense as ever in jeans and his new WWE Shop t-shirt. Heyman smiles at Cade before he continues to speak and hype his client.

    The Advocate – Paul Heyman:
    Chris Jericho I apologise for interrupting but myself and Mr Cade could no longer stand backstage and listen to these empty threats and insignificant claims from the United States Champion, Matt Hardy. Now while being the champion itself is an impressive feat, let’s take a look at my client Lance Cade and what he has achieved since asking for my guidance. Lance Cade has won every single match he has wrestled in. A win streak that yourself Mr Hardy could only dream of. So quite simply I will put it like this. At Cyber Sunday when the WWE Universe decide they want to see my client in action they will see a new United States Champion anointed as Lance Cade wins gold and takes another step to his quest of conquering all in the entire WWE.

    Mr Money in the Bank – Chris Jericho:
    You hear that Matt. You haven’t got a chance at Cyber Sunday! In fact you haven’t got a chance now!

    With that Jericho nails Matt Hardy with the microphone and begins hammering away at the United States Champion. Christian and Lance Cade look on from the outside until…



    The music of RAW Co-General Manager, Trish Stratus blasts through the arena as she gets an almighty reaction from the crowd in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Jericho stops attacking Hardy as he turns his attention to the RAW authority figure as does Lance Cade, Paul Heyman and Christian. Stratus is looking furious as she has microphone in hand and begins to speak over the cheering fans.

    RAW Co-General Manager – Trish Stratus:
    Jericho, you want to talk such a big game and then blindside your guests on the Highlight Reel then it is time for you to put your money where your mouth is because right now it will be the United States Champion, Matt Hardy going one-on-one with Mr Money in the Bank, Chris Jericho! Now get me a referee out here!

    The referee runs down the ramp as the screen fades and we go to a commercial break.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Cole:
    Welcome back to RAW everyone and we are about to have an impromptu match between the United States Champion, Matt Hardy and Mr Money in the Bank, Chris Jericho. Hardy was blindsided by Jericho during the Highlight Reel before the commercial break and now he has a chance of immediate revenge against the multiple time WWE Champion.
    King:
    And don’t forget Hardy has Christian sitting at ringside and Lance Cade standing at the top of the stage with his Advocate, Paul Heyman. Don’t forget one of the bonus match options at Cyber Sunday is a triple threat match which would see Hardy defend the gold against both Captain Charisma and the Ruthless Redneck. Hardy will want an impressive win here for sure.
    Cole:
    And that’s the bell so we are underway in this non-title contest.


    NON-TITLE SINGLES MATCH
    Matt Hardy vs. Chris Jericho



    The match starts with Hardy immediately going after Jericho looking for some revenge for the harsh words and the blindside attack from Jericho before the break. Hardy throws right hands, drops Jericho with a neckbreaker and delivers a jumping punch to the floored Mr Money in the Bank who rolls to the outside and looks to get back on track. Jericho shouts at a fan in the front row which gets him heat from the entire WWE Universe. Hardy begs Jericho to get back in the ring and he eventually does but he makes sure the referee gets the United States Champion back first. This is when the tables turn as Jericho sees Hardy coming and kicks him in the knee to take him down to a knee. Jericho completely floors his opponent with a beautiful and rarely seen SHINING WIZARD!. Mr Money in the Bank quickly pins and thinks he has done enough for a quick win; 1… 2… Hardy won’t give up that easily though as he kicks out and the match continues.

    Jericho dominates the next couple of minutes in the match, keeping Hardy grounded with some forearms and mounted punches. Jericho gets Hardy to his feet only to drop him again with a NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX. Y2J bridges; 1… 2… Hardy kicks out once more but needs to get back in the match and fast. The camera cuts to Christian sitting ringside at this point who is smiling and then to Lance Cade who is being told something by Paul Heyman at the top of the ramp. Jericho sits Hardy on the canvas and drives his knee into the back of the United States Champion, locking in a submission as he looks to grind him down and secure a win. The crowd slowly get behind Hardy as they look to clap and get the fan favourite out of the hold. Hardy gets to his feet and elbows his way out of the hold before flooring Jericho with a high impact CLOTHESLINE and then his trademark BULLDOG! Hardy drops his hand over the body of the limp Jericho looking for a pin attempt for the first time; 1…… 2…… This time Jericho refuses to give up.

    The crowd are solidly behind the United States Champion over Mr Money in the Bank as he waits for Jericho to get back to his feet. Hardy stalks him before going behind and connecting with an INVERTED DDT. Instead of going for a pinfall attempt Hardy decides it is time to take a risk as he goes to the top rope and faces into the crowd. The United States Champion leaps and delivers a perfect MOONSAULT! 1……… 2……… Jericho just gets his shoulder up in time to avoid what would have to be considered a shock defeat. The WWE Universe sense Hardy could be on the brink of a huge victory as the camera cuts to Christian who now looks concerned at how well his arch rival is doing in the contest. Hardy waits again for Jericho to get to his feet and locks Y2J in position for the SIDE EFFECT! Jericho gets planted on the canvas again! Is this it? 1……… 2……………… NO! Jericho gets his foot on the bottom rope as Hardy hooked the inside leg instead of the outside one. He cannot believe it!

    Hardy pleads with the referee that it had to be three as he is desperate for a huge and memorable win. The United States Champion re-focuses as he stalks Jericho and is clearly thinking it is time to deliver the TWIST OF FATE! Hardy has him in position but Jericho manages to get out of it. Christian is now on the apron trying to distract the referee as Y2J rakes the eyes of Hardy! The United States Champion is momentarily blinded and Jericho connects with the CODE BREAKER!!! Christian drops down from the apron as Mr Money in the Bank hooks the legs. 1………… 2……………… 3! Chris Jericho defeats Matt Hardy.
    Spoiler:

    Winner: Chris Jericho


    Chris Jericho celebrates after the match as he is handed his Money in the Bank briefcase. The WWE Universe boo loudly at the way Jericho won the match but Christian is smirking at the fallen Hardy from the outside. Heyman and Lance Cade are also happy at the fact Hardy lost at the top of the ramp as Jericho has his hand raised and RAW goes to another commercial break as we are just days from Cyber Sunday.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    A video montage of matches at Cyber Sunday from the past plays including a Champion vs. Champion vs. Champion Match between John Cena, King Booker and the Big Show where the WWE Universe voted for King Booker to defend the World Heavyweight Championship, Chris Jericho vs. Batista for the World Heavyweight Championship with Stone Cold Steve Austin as the Special Guest Referee and Ric Flair teaming with Rowdy Roddy Piper to take on the Spirit Squad.

    A voice-over is then heard once again:

    "At Cyber Sunday you the WWE Universe (Wrestling Clique Users) will decide the matches, stipulations and in one case the winner of a match as Cyber Sunday returns!"




    WWE Cyber Sunday comes your way Sunday 24th October live on pay per view!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Cole:
    Welcome back to RAW everyone as we get ever nearer to Cyber Sunday. Chris Jericho made a point before the break beating United States Champion, Matt Hardy and he will have another WWE Championship reign on his mind as he possesses the Money in the Bank briefcase. But now we’re switching gears to a big singles match between John Cena and the Masterpiece, Chris Masters.
    King:
    And Cena has had issues with Masters and his tag team partner Carlito in recent weeks but has found an unlikely ally in Randy Orton. But with the Apex Predator preparing for battle with the WWE Champion, Jack Swagger he might be forced to go it alone tonight. And Masters and Carlito will definitely look to make their numerical advantage pay.
    Cole:
    They will indeed King but don’t forget last week Cena, Orton and Kofi Kingston were able to knock off Masters, Carlito and Chris Jericho so the mental edge may be with the multiple-time WWE Champion. And we are ready for this match as listen to this place! Here comes John Cena!

    John Cena bursts through the curtain and gets an almighty reaction from the crowd. It seems the fans in Canada are bigger fans of the Chain Gang Soldier than those in the United States. Cena gets in the ring and runs the ropes before throwing his cap and t-shirt into the crowd as he awaits his opponents for this evening. That man is of course Chris Masters who makes his slow entrance with Carlito, posing and showing off his muscles with fireworks at the top of the stage. Masters gets in the ring and gets straight in Cena’s face as referee Marty Elias asks for the bell to be rung for the one-on-one contest as Carlito lurks at ringside to support his tag team partner.


    SINGLES MATCH
    John Cena vs. Chris Masters w/Carlito



    The match starts with a bang as instead of going after Masters, Cena quickly rolls out of the ring and runs at Carlito taking him out with a massive CLOTHESLINE! The crowd cheer loudly as Cena has immediately evened the odds for himself at least for a period of time. Cena gets back in the ring and ducks a big punch from Masters and delivers a number of his own before dropping the muscular Masters with a beautiful bulldog. Cena goes for a quick pin attempt; 1… 2… The Masterpiece kicks out as it is still very early in the contest. Cena stays focused though and continues to hammer away at Chris Masters. He Irish whips him into the turnbuckle and clotheslines him in the corner. Cena takes a seat on the top rope with his legs on the second rope as he grabs Masters by the head and nails him with a wicked TORNADO DDT. Cena goes for another cover; 1…… 2…… Masters gets the shoulder up as he tries to stay in the match which the former WWE Champion is absolutely dominating.

    Cena keeps building momentum as he stomps away at Masters and tries to keep on top in the contest. Cena shows off his power by dropping the Masterpiece with a BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX and locking him in a body scissors as he tries to wind the big man. The crowd get behind Cena as he slows the pace down momentarily. Masters tries to get out of it but Cena changes his form of attack and plants him with a beautiful FISHERMAN SUPLEX. Before Cena goes for the pin though Carlito is back to his feet and on the ring apron. Cena sees him immediately and blasts him off with a huge right hand as the crowd cheer again at the former WWE Champion evening the playing field. However, this time Masters takes advantage and nails Cena with an impactful SPINEBUSTER! Masters hooks the leg this time looking for a quick win over his opponent. 1…… 2…… Cena gets the shoulder up but that was an extremely close call.

    Masters realises he is now in control and hammers away at Cena using his strength advantage to ground him. The Masterpiece shows his amazing power by lifting Cena up and holding him in position for a DELAYED VERTICAL SUPLEX which he actually uses just one arm for before dropping the former WWE Champion onto the canvas. Masters gets Cena back to his feet and drops him immediately again with a powerful SIDEWALK SLAM as he hooks the leg this time. 1……… 2……… Cena shows his resilience and never give up attitude as he kicks out strongly. Masters begins to show some frustration in not winning in quicker fashion and Irish whips Cena into the turnbuckle. He follows that up with some seriously hard chops which light up the chest of the Chain Gang Soldier. Masters then Irish whips Cena and plants him with a picture-perfect SAMOAN DROP! Will the Masterpiece win this time? 1………… 2………… Cena again shows his character in getting his shoulder up.

    Masters is even more frustrated now as he gets Cena to his feet and SLAPS HIM as hard as he can across the face. This does not go well for the Masterpiece as it enrages Cena and he CLOTHESLINES Masters over the top rope and to the floor below. Cena goes after the Masterpiece but out of nowhere Carlito blocks the way. He doesn’t take out Cena but it gives Masters enough time to get back in the ring and escape the wrath of Cena. The former WWE Champion decides to hammer away at Carlito though and throws him straight into the STEEL STEPS which echoes throughout the arena. Cena quickly gets back in the ring and goes after Masters but he is met with a huge SCOOP POWERSLAM! Then in one quick movement Masters hauls Cena into the MASTER LOCK!!! Cena tries his hardest to fight out of the deadly submission but it becomes clear after a minute or so there is no way he is getting out of the manoeuvre. Cena passes out and the referee calls for the bell as Masters picks up a huge victory over the former WWE Champion.
    Spoiler:

    Winner: Chris Masters


    The music of Masters hits as the WWE Universe is stunned at what they just witnessed. Chris Masters has just made John Cena pass out with the Master Lock and picked up the biggest win of his career to date. Carlito eventually gets up and joins Masters on the entrance ramp as the two celebrate a massive win on Monday Night RAW as the show goes to its next commercial break with John Cena still flat out on the canvas.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    We return to RAW with a special look at none other than The Undertaker after his match with Batista at Cyber Sunday was postponed due to the Animal dealing with personal issues outside of the WWE ring.



    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Cole:
    Welcome back to RAW everyone and what a night it has been here so far and we still have our massive main event to come which will see the WWE Champion, Jack Swagger taking on none other than Randy Orton in a non-title contest. And don’t forget Triple H has been banned from the building by RAW Co-General Manager Vickie Guerrero. Swagger will be looking for a big win as we get ever closer to Cyber Sunday where he will defend the WWE Title against The Game.
    King:
    But don’t forget Orton is a former champion himself and will be looking at this as a major opportunity to make a statement and get himself back in the WWE Championship picture. The All American American is going to have his work cut out against the Apex Predator here tonight. But we’ve got more in-ring action before that Michael.
    Cole:
    We do indeed King as the undefeated Rough Justice team up with the Cruiserweight Champion, Kaval to take on The World’s Greatest Tag Team and Primo in 6-man tag team action and here comes Tyler Reks and Vance Archer!

    The monstrous duo of Rough Justice stride down to the ring with smoke filling the arena and red and white flashing lights. The crowd give a mixed reaction as Reks and Archer are clearly a spectacle with how they have been dominating opponents in recent weeks. Rough Justice get in the ring and await their tag team partner to arrive. That of course is none other than the WWE Cruiserweight Champion, Kaval who gets a lot of heat from the WWE Universe. Kaval has dominated everyone who has challenge him since winning the title from Evan Bourne.

    Next out are Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin, The World’s Greatest Tag Team. The pair get a really nice pop from the crowd although they haven’t been successful in tag team action in recent times. The pair wisely stand outside the ring before they are joined by the athletic Primo who has his sights firmly set on Kaval and his title. The trio enter the ring as we are ready for the match to start.



    6-MAN TAG TEAM MATCH
    Rough Justice & Kaval vs. The World’s Greatest Tag Team & Primo



    Kaval and Primo are the two men to start us off in the match as the crowd are entertained by some high-flying action in the early moments of the contest. Kaval tries to throw a number of kicks at Primo but the Cruiserweight evades the champion and delivers a nice HURRICANRANA to take down his opponent. Primo continues to build momentum with a DROPKICK and a nice CROSSBODY from the top rope as the crowd pop for the man who wants to be the number one contender for the Cruiserweight Championship. Primo gets Kaval to his feet but the World Warrior ducks under a clothesline attempt and tries to go for another big roundhouse kick but Primo has it well scouted once more. The man from the Caribbean ducks underneath and ends up behind Kaval in perfect position for the BACK STABBER! Kaval holds onto the top rope though and avoids getting nailed with the knees into the back as he makes a desperate tag to Tyler Reks to get away from the onslaught of Primo.

    The crowd gasp as they sense what is about to happen. Shelton Benjamin calls Primo over and demands a tag as he wants a piece of Tyler Reks. This is easily the toughest test to date for Reks as Benjamin goes after him with some big right hands and two clotheslines. Benjamin looks to throw a third huge lariat at Reks but he is absolutely flattened with a BIG BOOT by Reks who turns to the crowd and menacingly stares as Shelton bounces hard off the canvas. Reks runs over to Archer and tags him in as the other half of Rough Justice sprints across the ring and knocks Charlie Haas off the apron with a brutal RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! Primo tries to springboard off the ropes to help his teammates but is caught by Reks with a POP-UP POWERSLAM which makes the ring shake as the crowd gasp again.

    Shelton Benjamin is back to his feet and tries to get some offence going but has little luck as he is swatted aside by Reks again. Kaval gets in the ring and sprints across before leaping over the top rope and connecting with a huge SOMERSAULT PLANCHA to Charlie Haas and Primo and taking them out of commission. That leaves Tyler Reks and Vance Archer in the ring alone with Shelton Benjamin which is not going to end well for the member of the World’s Greatest Tag Team. Reks gets Benjamin on his shoulders in a Samoan Drop position on the second rope before jumping him and planting him on the knees of Vance Archer with a sickening thud. Rough Justice deliver THE SENTENCING! Legal man Tyler Reks hooks the leg of Shelton Benjamin and this one is over. 1…… 2…… 3.
    Spoiler:

    Winners: Rough Justice


    Rough Justice have left a pile of bodies in their wake and Tyler Reks and Vance Archer must be getting closer to a WWE Tag Team Championship opportunity against The Empire over on SmackDown. Reks and Archer celebrate in the ring as on the outside Kaval smiles as he is handed his WWE Cruiserweight Championship and RAW goes to the final commercial break of the evening.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Cole:
    Welcome back to RAW everyone and before the break we witnessed sheer domination from the duo known as Rough Justice as they absolutely tore through Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin. The tag team division has been put on notice by Tyler Reks and Vance Archer. But now it is time to turn our attention to the main event on Monday Night RAW as WWE Champion, Jack Swagger takes on Randy Orton.
    King:
    I cannot wait for this one Cole, Swagger has been dominant since he became champion albeit needing the help of Vickie Guerrero on several occasions to keep hold of the title. But tonight he has no distractions as Triple H has been banned from the building and Swagger can focus on Orton. The Viper is not a man to take lightly though.
    Cole:
    You can say that again. Randy Orton is an elite superstar in the WWE and a former champion in his own right. Swagger has to focus if he wants a win here tonight and to build momentum ahead of his WWE Championship match with Triple H at Cyber Sunday this Sunday!. And here comes his opponent, listen to his ovation for the Apex Predator, Randy Orton!

    The music of the former member of Evolution hits and he makes his way to the ring to a massive reaction from the sold out crowd. Orton is wearing his black trunks with red livery as he rolls into the ring and climbs the turnbuckle before raising his arms in trademark fashion to another almighty pop. Orton slowly repeats that on a second turnbuckle before awaiting his opponent for tonight’s main event. WWE Champion, Jack Swagger enters alongside RAW Co-General Manager, Vickie Guerrero to monstrous heat. The All American American takes it all in his stride as he walks down the aisle and is staring a hole through Randy Orton in the ring. Swagger raises the WWE Championship aloft before handing it to the referee and signalling he is ready for this non-title contest. The bell rings and we are underway.


    NON-TITLE SINGLES MATCH
    Jack Swagger vs. Randy Orton



    [quote]The match starts with Randy Orton immediately going after Jack Swagger and trying to catch him by surprise. The Viper hammers away at the WWE Champion before dropping him with a big clothesline which sends Swagger to the outside. Swagger looks to catch his breath but Orton is having none of it and goes after the All American American on the outside. Orton grabs hold of Swagger and delivers a huge BACKDROP to him onto the barricade. Orton follows that up by shooting a menacing glance at Vickie Guerrero. The RAW Co-General Manager looks uneasy as Orton rolls Swagger back in the ring and delivers a perfect dropkick to take him back of his feet once more. Randy goes for the first cover of the match; 1… 2… Swagger kicks out and it is going to take a lot more punishment to keep him down for a three count. Orton senses he is on top and taunts to the fans in Canada who pop loudly for the Apex Predator.

    The Legend Killer is in the zone as he Irish whips Swagger into the turnbuckle and delivers a number of EUROPEAN UPPERCUTS to his opponent. Vickie Guerrero screams at the referee to pull Orton off of the WWE Champion and the official does but as he does Swagger floors Orton with a brutal LARIAT of his own. Swagger takes a moment to get his bearings after the onslaught of offence he has taken so far in the contest. Once he does he immediately goes after The Viper and clubs him on the back repeatedly before throwing him half way across the ring with a beautiful BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX. Orton gets straight back up but Swagger floors him again with a big GERMAN SUPLEX! Swagger hooks the leg; 1…… 2…… Orton gets the shoulder up and refuses to quit in tonight’s main event on RAW. Swagger gets some encouragement from Vickie Guerrero on the outside as he sits Orton on the top rope. The WWE Champion nails his opponent with a big punch and knocks him to the floor on the outside with a brutal thud.

    Swagger is quick to capitalise on his fallen opponent as he stomps away at Orton on the outside before getting him to his feet and lifting him. The WWE Champion drives the Apex Predator back first into the steel ring post. Orton screams in pain as Swagger smirks and Vickie Guerrero delights in the work of her client. Swagger gets back in the ring and tells the referee to countout his opponent. Mike Chioda starts the count; 1… 2… 3… 4… 5… 6… 7… Orton begins to stir… 8… 9… Orton just makes it back in the ring to avoid defeat. Swagger cannot believe it but quickly sees Orton is laying prone in position for the SWAGGER BOMB! The All American American flies down onto his opponent after propelling himself backwards off the second rope. Swagger hooks both legs of Orton; 1……… 2…………… The Viper gets the shoulder up and stays alive. The WWE Champion cannot believe it and argues with the referee but of course that proves to be his downfall.

    Swagger turns around and goes to get Orton up but is met with a an INVERTED HEADLOCK BACKBREAKER as Randy somehow gets back on top in the match despite being exhausted from the punishment he has taken. Orton now Irish whips Swagger and plants him with a huge POWERLSAM as he hooks the leg; 1…………… 2…………………… The WWE Champion gets the shoulder up! Orton is fuming and sees his opportunity as Swagger is motionless on the canvas. Orton signals for the RKO as the crowd go nuts. Orton jumps for the deadly manoeuvre but Swagger throws him off and he hits the turnbuckle hard. The WWE Champion rolls his opponent up; 1…………… 2…………………… The Viper kicks out. Both men get back to their feet and take each other out with huge CLOTHESLINES as Vickie Guerrero looks on concerned for her client. Things are about to take a turn for the worse though…



    Triple H is in the building. The Game has somehow managed to evade security and has returned as the Calgary crowd go absolutely nuts for the number one contender for the WWE Championship. Triple H strides down to the ring as Vickie Guerrero looks like she has seen a ghost. Swagger gets to his feet and sees the Cerebral Assassin is coming his way and tries to get out but Randy Orton is behind him and stops him. Triple H hammers away at Swagger as does Orton in a throwback to their days together in Evolution as the referee throws the match out.

    Spoiler:

    Winner: Jack Swagger via disqualification


    The bell ringing has little to no effect on Triple H and Randy Orton though as they double-team the WWE Champion. Triple H is irate and Vickie Guerrero is calling on security to come down to the ring and try and stop Triple H and Randy Orton. Eight security guards come down but an RKO OUT OF NOWHERE takes one out immediately as Triple H clotheslines another two. Orton powerslams one before he delivers another RKO to another. Triple H nails the PEDIGREE on the final security guard as Swagger tries to crawl his way out of the ring. Triple H is having none of it though as The Game does his signature crotch chop before kicking Jack Swagger in the gut. The Game connects with a huge PREDIGREE!!! Jack Swagger is motionless on the canvas as Randy Orton gets out of the ring as he feels his work is done for the night. That leaves Triple H in the ring posing in front of the fallen WWE Champion just days away from their main event clash at Cyber Sunday.

    Cole:
    Triple H has made a statement here tonight on Monday Night RAW! The Game has floored the WWE Champion ahead of his match with Jack Swagger at Cyber Sunday this Sunday. Listen to this place, it is clear who Calgary want to become the WWE Champion. And look at Vickie Guerrero. She is beside herself at ringside.
    King:
    Well even the best plans can be ruined by the likes of Triple H and it is clear that the RAW Co-GM underestimated the Cerebral Assassin here tonight. Triple H has had the last laugh and Jack Swagger was right to be concerned earlier in the show. He is seeing stars right now. And before The Game even showed up the WWE Champion could well have lost to Randy Orton.
    Cole:
    He certainly could have but we will never know. Triple H stands tall as we say goodnight for another week on Monday Night RAW and we will see you at Cyber Sunday!!

    Re: WWE: The New Vision

    RAW REVIEW

    Good start to the night with Triple H wanting to exact revenge on Jack Swagger for what happened at the end of last week. Trips running through security would have been great to see but The Game can't take on the whole roster. Swagger was too smug and I fully expect Trips to get revenge later on.

    Kane beating Kingston was expected, especially with one guy looking to go into a monstrous battle in six days and the other not involved at all. The promo from Kane was good and sent a message to The Big Show. Not expecting their final encounter to be a masterclass, but it will be messy and terminal for this feud. I'm just debating whether I make it an I quit match just for laughs. Inferno Match does seem a lot more final for the loser though.

    Nice little tag team match between three of the Divas in the title mix and I will admit that I had to go back a few shows to remember what happened with Gail Kim before I realise she is on Smackdown. Also Alicia Fox won't be getting my vote for certain after losing both here and to Mickie last week. I'm torn over Melina, who has that heel fire or giving Gail the shot because she beat Mickie a few weeks back.

    Highlight Reel was enjoyable and Jericho really got into Matt's head. The match as expected was competitive and Jericho keeps his momentum up thanks to a little assistance from Christian. The triple threat will get my vote merely because I think it's the match I'm unsure of the outcome. Even though I love Punk/Edge/Morrison individually I think I can wait to see them go at it. As for Matt I'm hoping he gets built up as a star who will not go down easily, probably leading to him retaining at Cyber Sunday if the match goes ahead.

    Cena took his eye off the ball tonight and he paid the price for it. Carlito and Masters are continuing to look good in their feud with the biggest star of the company. I'm wodnering whether we are waiting for a Super Cena moment in the near future that propels Cena back into the title equation, especially once Swagger drops it.

    Nice to see that The Undertaker has not disappeared because of the stop in his rivalry with Batista. Rehab could be a while so a new story for The Deadman could be what he needs. Off the top of my head both Kane and whoever wins the WWE Championship match could be next in line to tackle Taker.

    I bet Kaval looked like the cat that got the cream after being paired with Rough Justice, who destroyed The World's Greatest Tag Team. It won't be long before they are in title matches for the title and I expect that they could definitely be the future faces of the division.

    Top main event and Triple H coming down was expected and after a little help from Orton he stands tall as Raw goes off the air. If we are picking the winner of this match then I hope my fellow voters side with me and pick Jack Swagger. It would be awesome for Swagger's CV if he outlasted both Cena and Trips in feuds and I think there is a lot more challenges that Swagger could face down the line. Also I'm a little anxious/excited that the result is pointless as I'm expecting Jericho to cash in, hence the only reason you'd put the winner up to the readers.

    Cyber Sunday is looking great and I'm very excited to get my votes in soon. Welcome back Order... just make sure you stay back this time!!!

    Re: WWE: The New Vision

    ​Raw Review

    First time checking this thread out, excited to see such a long running thread and experiencing it for the first time. Forgive me if I’m not entirely sure of what is going on but I’ll do my best. I’ve given a few of the previews a look and it seems like a several interesting things are going on.

    I enjoyed the first segment as a way to put some restrictions on Triple H considering how big a force the character tends to be. The use of security guards was really well done as it allowed for Guerrero to call on the Raw roster, further creating a gap between Triple H and those willing to do the bidding of the evil authority figure. It’s really good story telling rather than having the roster hit the ring from the get go. In the same way, Orton’s assist at the end of the show not only provided equal footing for Triple H, and elevating Orton, but it put more heat on those individuals who helped restrain The Game earlier in the night.

    As a presentation option, and something that’s entirely down to personal preference, I would’ve liked to see a clear indication of when a commercial break is taking place. I realized afterwards you’ve put a line to show that but I often got that confused with just a separation of segments rather than an indication of a break in the show. Just made me read over stuff again to make sure I knew what was happening when.

    I liked the intensity from Kane on the microphone. I often see people keep him silent but Kane is such a layered character that can be ten times more interesting if you actually dig into his history. I think you captured the character really well. A big monster fight is something that can be great or absolutely horrid. From what you did on this show I’m looking forward to seeing a fight. That’s what I’d expect from the match since the characters aren’t exactly the best wrestlers and it would work really well with the stipulations you’ve put forward, all of which capture what this feud should be – a fight.

    The Highlight Reel was interesting, I think it could’ve gone a little longer with more back and forth between Hardy, Christian and Heyman. There was a heavy focus on Hardy and Jericho, without knowing the full backstory, it appeared to me as a reader that the two challengers were secondary to a larger story of Hardy vs. Jericho. Looking at the pay-per-view card that doesn’t seem to be the case, reading this I thought Jericho was involved somehow. I get that the result wanted was for Jericho and Hardy to wrestle, and I think you could’ve got there as well as putting more focusing on the three-way competitors. The segment got me excited for Jericho/Hardy, not necessarily for Hardy/Christian/Cade.

    Stratus appears to be a fan favourite – I support the dynamic of co-mangers with a heel and a face. It creates a fun contrast where you can have the heel making side deals as with Swagger and Guerrero, while Stratus carries with her a sense of justice. It was a nice move with the beatdown turning into a match, good job overall and I like the inclusion of Stratus.

    I’m a fan of mid-card talent getting elevated in BTBs. It creates a unique dynamic for that specific thread which is considerably different to the WWE or real-life organizations path they have taken. Masters looked like a big deal here causing Cena to go out cold. Not only that but you gave Cena an ‘out’ with it being a two on one situation. That’s smart booking and something I enjoy seeing. I could say the same thing with Kofi Kingston and even Swagger as WWE Champion. Keep pushing those types of guys, for someone like me who hasn’t read a majority of this thread, it peaks my interest as I can go back and see how they rose through the ranks. Good job.

    Matches were fun to read. You’ve clearly got a handle on that. The main event had a great angle to end the show. I’d be interested to see a follow up on how Triple H got back into the building. Overall, for a first time reading, this was a really fun show. The fresh characters made me want to have a further look at what this thread provides and I’ll be keeping up as it goes along.

    Fun stuff!


    Sometimes I write stuff on the internet and people like it (sometimes).

    Re: WWE: The New Vision

    I appreciate you dropping in on my thread a few days ago. Thought I’d return the favour. Obviously, this is my first time checking this thread out, so I’m coming in blind, and it might take me a while to get up to speed with what’s going on. Much respect for any long running BTB such as this.

    Anyway, off the bat, I’m impressed to see Jack Swagger as the WWE Champion. Just a missed opportunity for the WWE with Swagger, completely misusing him in real life, so it’s refreshing to see him as the WWE Champion and in a prominent role. Refreshing.

    Swagger being the client of the Raw Co-GM (Vickie and Trish as General Managers sounds interesting by the way) is an interesting twist, and I can just envisage the stunts Vickie must be pulling on a weekly basis to protect her client as champion. Vickie giving Triple H the night off makes sense, given her allegiances, not wanting Triple H to get some revenge after the table spot highlighted at the top of the show last week. I liked that it took a load of roster members to finally subdue The Game, emphasizing just how fired up he was.

    Was surprised that Kane beat Kofi, given the run Kingston appears to be on after beating the champion and Jericho in recent weeks, though with Kane gearing up for a big match at Cyber Sunday, it’s the wise decision. Always good to see the main motivation for people being the WWE Title, and Kane pointing out that that is what he’s after once he gets done with Show is good to see. Always makes the title feel that much more important.

    Mickie appears to be a pretty dominant champion in the Divas division right now. I’m guessing Alicia Fox wont be much of a factor in the voting after taking the loss here.

    Interesting to see Swagger dictating to Vickie. Not sure if you’re building dissention between the two or if this was just Swagger being apprehensive about Triple H returning. Also, I’m glad you addressed that possibility, as everyone watching would be predicting Triple H coming back, so at least Swagger doesn’t look stupid by just assuming Triple H was gone and that was it.

    The Highlight Reel segment definitely got me interested in seeing that triple threat match at Cyber Sunday, so it would be getting my vote for sure. Cade with Heyman sounds great. Was always high on Cade personally, so seeing him get the Paul Heyman stardust makes me happy. Cade and Swagger being featured in prominent roles are the two big takeaways I have on first viewing of this thread.

    Pretty cool to see Masters and Carlito paired up again in this thread. They felt like they were a rising force as a pair, helping each other in late 2005/early 2006 before their partnership got broken up, so I hope that their reunion is having the same effect it had in that time period. Massive win for Masters too - the Masterlock is such a simple hold, but it was so over by the middle of 2005, it’s good to see you making it as special again now. If even John Cena {Superman} is failing to break it, the Master Lock is definitely being taken seriously. My only complaint about it as that it didn’t feel as if enough was made of Masters putting Cena to sleep in the Master Lock - that could’ve been a show closing angle. Obviously, not this show, considering there’s a PPV to promote, but it’s a pity this match couldn’t have been held off for a week to make it a more special moment.

    I like the team name of Rough Justice and Seeing Reks and Vance Archer getting a push is another refreshing sight to see. Not often either man is used to any degree in a BTB. Refreshing appears to be the buzz word I keep going back to on this review - seeing different names in prominent roles and getting pushes, it definitely makes this thread stand out to me off the bat on first viewing.

    Expected the finish of the show, with Triple H returning to run roughshod and get a measure of revenge on Swagger heading into Cyber Sunday. Fine way to close the show, focusing on the big PPV match. Intriguing that you’re leaving the choice of winner up to the readers of the thread.

    Anyways, I found this as pretty enjoyable read, despite coming in cold on the thread, I didn’t feel like I was completely lost on what was going on. My only negative is that I didn’t think enough was made of Masters knocking off John Cena considering the manner he did it with the Master Lock. I felt that a lot more should’ve been made of it - unless - this isn’t the first time it’s happened, in which case, then, ignore my complaint.

    Overall, it’s exciting to see Swagger as Champion, Masters on the rise, and the likes of Tyler Reks and Vance Archer making moves. All guys that didn’t get the push they deserved, or in Reks and Archers cases, didn’t get a chance to show what they had. Good to see something different.

    Cyber Sunday Cyber Sunday Announcement and WWE Superstars Preview


    WWE Breaking News – Tuesday 19th October 2010

    Following the events in recent weeks on Monday Night RAW between John Cena, Randy Orton, Chris Masters and Carlito a huge match has been announced for Cyber Sunday. With Batista vs. Undertaker pulled from the card, John Cena will now team up with Randy Orton to take on the Caribbean star and the Masterpiece in a blockbuster tag team match. It is thought there will be no fan vote on the match due to the late nature of the contest being made. Will Cena and Orton show their class or will the upstarts Carlito and Masters pick up a massive victory?







    Thursday 21st October 2010

    We are just three days away from WWE Cyber Sunday as RAW and SmackDown wrestlers compete on WWE Superstars. And this week’s main event is presented by Monday Night RAW hot on the heels of the announcement that John Cena and Randy Orton will take on Carlito and Chris Masters at the pay per view in Minneapolis. And after Cena was unable to overcome Masters on RAW due to the numbers game it is the turn of the Apex Predator to take on the Masterpiece. Who will come out on top just days before Cyber Sunday though?

    We will also have two big tag team matches on the show as the dominant duo of Tyler Reks and Vance Archer known as Rough Justice will compete with The World’s Greatest Tag Team and on the SmackDown side of things Cryme Tyme will battle the team of Ted DiBiase and Goldust. And don’t forget tomorrow night on the blue brand DiBiase and Goldust will fight to become the permanent tag team partner of Cody Rhodes. Is there any way the duo can be a cohesive team just 24 hours before that though?

    The fourth and final match to take place on WWE Superstars on WGN America this Thursday sees Empire member Finlay take on Tyson Kidd. That’s just three days before The Empire take on The Hart Dynasty for the WWE Tag Team Championship. Fans will get to vote on the referee for that match with Bret Hart, William Regal and SmackDown General Manager, Theodore Long as the options. Both Finlay and Tyson Kidd will want to build some momentum ahead of Cyber Sunday. Tune in to WWE Superstars this Thursday for all this and more.

    Superstar WWE Superstars - Thursday 21st October 2010


    Superstars – 21st October 2010


    Master of The Viper?



    Mathews:
    Ladies and gentlemen we welcome you to WWE Superstars and we are just three days away from Cyber Sunday, the most interactive pay per view of the year. Fans will get to have their say on almost every match and rivalries and championships will be settled. But first SmackDown and RAW brings you another action-packed episode of Superstars. My broadcast partner Matt Striker will tell you more.
    Striker:
    Thank you Josh and SmackDown does indeed have two fascinating contests tonight. The Hart Dynasty will look to win the WWE Tag Team Championship at Cyber Sunday when they take on The Empire but tonight Tyson Kidd will look to get some momentum over Finlay. Can the last graduate of the Hart Dungeon pick up a win or will the Belfast Brawler make a statement?
    Mathews:
    And SmackDown will also kick off proceedings here tonight with some tag team action. And speaking of which listen to this ovation for JTG and Shad, none other than Cryme Tyme!

    The crowd really enjoy the duo as they make their way down the ring and high five those in the front row either side of the aisle. JTG and Shad Gaspard do their signature taunts in the ring before the first of their two opponents arrive. That man is none other than Goldust as the crowd cheer for the Bizarre One who has been trying to win over brother Cody Rhodes in recent weeks. Goldust taunts and throws his wig down to the floor which gets a pop. That turns to jeers as the Fortunate Son, Ted DiBiase makes his entrance looking smug with himself and talking trash to his tag team partner for this evening as well as Cryme Tyme. DiBiase and Goldust will face off tomorrow night on SmackDown remember with the winner becoming Cody Rhodes’ permanent tag team partner.


    TAG TEAM MATCH
    Cryme Tyme vs. Ted DiBiase & Goldust



    The match starts with JTG and Ted DiBiase going at it with the crowd solidly behind the member of Cryme Tyme. JTG gets the better of the Fortunate Son with his superior speed, connecting with a dropkick and a nice sling blade to DiBiase. JTG tags in Shad as he drops DiBiase with a neckbreaker. Shad follows that up by lifting JTG and launching him onto his opponent with a big LEG DROP! Shad covers for the first time in the match; 1… 2… DiBiase kicks out and won’t be beaten that easily. The former member of Legacy is really struggling now to get a foothold in the match as Gaspard dominates him at every turn. Shad nearly takes his head off with a MASSIVE BOOT to the face as he CLOTHESLINES Ted outside of the ring. Goldust drops down from the apron to check on his tag team partner as he is clearly willing to get along tonight for the betterment of the duo. DiBiase doesn’t take kindly to that though.

    DiBiase pushes Goldust in the chest but before anything else can happen JTG comes out of nowhere with a SOMERSAULT PLANCHA which wipes out Ted as the crowd go nuts for the move and the Cryme Tyme duo do their money, money, yeah, yeah chant to the delight of the WWE Universe. Shad follows it up by going to the outside and dragging DiBiase back into the ring. Cryme Tyme sense this could be their moment to do massive damage to Ted and finish the match. Shad tags JTG in and tells him to go to the top rope. JTG leaps and delivers an AXE HANDLE to DiBiase’s arm as Shad exits the ring and holds onto the tag rope. Things are about to completely change though as JTG goes to the top rope once more and looks for a BLOCKBUSTER to DiBiase. The Fortunate Son sidesteps though and JTG crashes and burns as DiBiase manages to make a desperation tag to Goldust who gets a massive pop as he enters the contest legally for the first time.

    The legendary superstar enters and takes out JTG with a couple of clotheslines before connecting with a huge BACK BODY DROP as the Cruiserweight goes miles in the air. Shad Gaspard gets in the ring and sprints at Goldust but the Bizarre One has it well scouted and pulls down the top rope as the Cryme Tyme member flies to the outside and lands hard on the floor. JTG tries to blindside Goldust but he ducks underneath an attempted clothesline and on the rebound Goldust catches him with a beautiful SCOOP POWERSLAM. Goldust hooks the leg; 1…… 2…… JTG just gets the shoulder up to avoid defeat. Goldust gets the crowd pumped even more by taunting before turning his attention back to JTG. Goldust goes to the top rope facing into the crowd and leaps backwards delivering a huge CROSSBODY to the Cryme Tyme member! This could be it. 1……… 2……… JTG just gets the shoulder up once again.

    Goldust doesn’t show any frustration and stays focused and ready to pounce on his opponent. The Bizarre One calls for the CURTAIN CALL but before JTG is back to his feet Ted DiBiase tags himself into the match. The crowd boo loudly as Goldust looked like he was well on his way to winning the contest for his team. Goldust has words with his opponent tomorrow night on SmackDown but DiBiase tries to talk his way out of it. While all this is going on JTG manages to crawl his way over to his corner and tags in big Shad Gaspard as the powerhouse comes in and DOUBLE CLOTHESLINES both Goldust and DiBiase! Goldust rolls to the outside with the impact leaving DiBiase in a bad position with Shad who tags JTG straight back in and sets the Fortunate Son up for the G9! JTG covers DiBiase and this one is academic from here. 1………… 2………… 3! Cryme Tyme beat Goldust and Ted DiBiase to pick up some momentum in the tag team division.
    Spoiler:

    Winners: Cryme Tyme


    Mathews:
    Cryme Tyme win thanks to Ted DiBiase making another poor decision. Goldust looked like he was about to seal victory but the former member of Legacy decided to tag himself in for some reason and that led to him being devastated by big Shad Gaspard who looks unstoppable lately alongside JTG. Cryme Tyme pick up a victory.
    Striker:
    They do indeed and while I may not approve of their standing in society as hoodlums they can certainly get it done between the ropes as they proved here tonight. I think this thing is going to explode tomorrow night between Goldust and Ted DiBiase though when they compete to see who becomes the permanent tag team partner for Cody Rhodes. It is clear they can’t get along but who will end up alongside Cody?
    Mathews:
    We will find out tomorrow night on SmackDown as we are just three days from Cyber Sunday. Still plenty more here to come tonight including out main event which sees none other than the Apex Predator, Randy Orton taking on The Masterpiece, Chris Masters.

    Back in the ring Cryme Tyme celebrate their victory as Goldust scowls at Ted DiBiase from the outside. The Fortunate Son shows no remorse for his actions as he retreats up the ramp as WWE Superstars goes to a commercial break and we get the don’t try this at home video promo which is regularly shown.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    We return to the show backstage with interviewer RAW broadcast team member Todd Grisham who has a special guest with him at this time.

    Backstage Interviewer – Todd Grisham:
    Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time, she is one of the women who is in contention to challenge Mickie James for the DIVA’s Championship this Sunday, she is the Paparazzi Princess, MELINA!

    Melina comes into shot looking intense in jeans and a merchandise t-shirt as she gets a lot of heat from the crowd before Grisham continues.

    Backstage Interviewer – Todd Grisham:
    Melina, in just three nights either yourself, Alicia Fox or Gail Kim will challenge Mickie James for the DIVA’s Championship. What I want to know is why should you be the challenger in Minneapolis?

    Paparazzi Princess – Melina:
    It is simple. Whether these fans want to admit it or not there is only one woman in the WWE deserving of challenging Mickie James and deserving to hold the DIVA’s Championship. That woman is myself. I am a five-time DIVA’s Champion and I am the most dominant and beautiful DIVA this company has ever seen. Mickie James got lucky at Night of Champions when she won the title in a Triple Threat Match that also included Alicia Fox but in any one-on-one match between the two of us it is simple. The Paparazzi Princess wins back her title!

    Backstage Interviewer – Todd Grisham:
    But what is Alicia Fox or Gail Kim beat you in the vote Melina? Should you not be considering that you might not get the title shot at Cyber Sunday?

    Paparazzi Princess – Melina:
    Alicia Fox had her opportunity at Cyber Sunday and she was the reason we lost as team on Monday night to Mickie James and Eve Torres. It is clear she isn’t in my league. And as for Gail Kim, well she has clearly been avoiding fighting me as she is on SmackDown where quite simply there is no competition whatsoever in the DIVA’s division. It is very simple. Melina will walk into Cyber Sunday as the rightful challenger and I will walk out the NEW DIVA’s Champion!

    With that Melina walks out of the backstage interview area as Grisham reminds us what fans will be voting for ahead of Cyber Sunday.



    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    We head back into the arena where The Hart Dynasty entrance theme hits and the crowd pop as Tyson Kidd comes through the curtain. He makes his way down to the ring for his singles match coming up. The rest of The Hart Dynasty and The Empire have been banned from ringside by SmackDown General Manager, Theodore Long for tonight’s one-on-one contest. Tyson Kidd gets in the ring and taunts to another pop before his opponent enters. That man is none other than the Belfast Brawler, Finlay who gets a lot of heat from the WWE Universe. Finlay doesn’t care though and walks down to the ring with Shillelagh in hand. He gets in the ring, stares at Kidd as the bell rings and we are underway.


    SINGLES MATCH
    Tyson Kidd vs. Finlay



    Tyson Kidd goes straight after Finlay with the two brawling as they clearly hate each other after The Hart Dynasty and The Empire have been feuding for a number of months. Kidd hammers away at Finlay and the Northern Irishman responds by delivering plenty of his own as well. Finlay gets the advantage as he kicks Kidd in the gut out of nowhere and decks Tyson Kidd with a SHORT-ARM CLOTHESLINE! Kidd has all air driven out of him in an instant as Finlay goes for a cover; 1… 2… Kidd kicks out and avoids a sudden defeat at the hands of The Empire member. Finlay works at a slower methodical place just how he likes it dominating the smaller man. He stomps away and hammers away at The Hart Dynasty member before he smirks and the crowd boo loudly at him dominating Kidd. Finlay picks Tyson up and drops him again with a ROLLING FIREMAN’S CARRY SLAM! Finlay pins again; 1…… 2…… Kidd shows some more resilience in kicking out.

    Finlay Irish whips Tyson Kidd hard into the turnbuckle to continue building momentum as the former WWE Tag Team Champion collapses in a heap on the canvas. Finlay gets Kidd back to his feet and stands him in the corner before taking a few steps back and going for a big corner clothesline. Kidd gets his foot up though to rock Finlay as he explodes out of the corner with a huge NECKBREAKER. Kidd is gasping for air as he finally gets some offense in against Finlay and looks to continue his onslaught. Kidd goes to the top rope and waits for the Belfast Brawler to get to his feet and leaps delivering a huge BLOCKBUSTER! Tyson Kidd hooks both legs looking for a big win ahead of The Hart Dynasty challenging for the WWE Tag Team Championship at Cyber Sunday; 1……… 2……… Finlay kicks out and keeps the match alive. Tyson Kidd is now solidly in this match though as he stands and waits for Finlay to get to his feet.

    Kidd connects with a number of kicks, a spinning back fist and a beautiful clothesline sending Finlay back to the canvas when he again ascends the ropes. Kidd waits for The Empire member to get to his feet before jumping but Finlay swats Kidd out of the air as he goes for a MISSILE DROPKICK! Finlay smirks before he sprints across the ring and leaps, driving all of the air out of Kidd once again with a RUNNING SENTON. Finlay realises he is well on top in the match now and signals that it is time to put Tyson Kidd away for good. The Belfast Brawler calls for the CELTIC CROSS but as he goes to pick Kidd up he is met with a massive ROUNDHOUSE KICK!!! Finlay collapses in a heap to the mat and this could be it! 1………… 2………… The Belfast Brawler just manages to get the shoulder up and keeps the match alive. Kidd cannot believe it as the crowd start a chant of Tyson, Tyson, Tyson. Kidd appreciates it and re-focuses on Finlay delivering a stunning SPINNING WHEEL KICK!.

    Kidd goes to the top rope again and looks like going high risk once again. Kidd leaps and delivers a huge CROSSBODY which takes out Finlay. Kidd stays in position for the back press; 1………… 2………… Finlay kicks out again as Kidd shows the first signs of frustration at not putting away his opponent so far. Tyson quickly gets back on track and chooses high-risk again as he climbs the turnbuckles. He waits for a wobbly Finlay to get to a vertical base before jumping but is caught in a huge SITOUT POWERBOMB from the Belfast Brawler! The Empire member doesn’t have enough to immediately pin though and instead uses the ropes to get his energy back before lifting Tyson Kidd back to his feet and in position for the CELTIC CROSS! Finlay connects with his finishing manoeuvre! This has to be it. 1…………… 2…………… 3! The Empire gain some momentum going into Cyber Sunday!
    Spoiler:

    Winner: Finlay


    Mathews:
    Finlay picks up a big win here tonight over Tyson Kidd just three nights before Cyber Sunday when The Empire will defend the WWE Tag Team Championship against The Hart Dynasty with a referee of your choosing. Will it be Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart, SmackDown GM, Theodore Long or none other than William Regal? I cannot wait to find out Matt!
    Striker:
    This is what Cyber Sunday is all about. We don’t know how these things are going to turn out. The Hart Dynasty will be hoping for Bret Hart, The Empire will be desperate for William Regal and what would Teddy Long do if he got the nod? One thing that is clear is that Finlay has got some momentum for The Empire with this hard-fought win over Tyson Kidd tonight.
    Mathews:
    No doubt about it. Finlay is one of the toughest we have here in the WWE and Kidd was very game here tonight but he just couldn’t do enough to secure a big win for himself in singles competition. Well don’t go anywhere ladies and gentleman as we still have two more matches to come here tonight including Randy Orton going one-on-one with Chris Masters here tonight on Superstars!

    Finlay celebrates up the ramp as he shouts ‘The Empire will conquer all’ to the crowd who boo him loudly. The camera cuts to Tyson Kidd in the ring who looks distraught at losing here tonight. Finlay celebrates at the top of the ramp before the camera fades and we go to a commercial break and a promo for the most interactive pay per view of the year, Cyber Sunday!



    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    A video montage of matches at Cyber Sunday from the past plays including a Champion vs. Champion vs. Champion Match between John Cena, King Booker and the Big Show where the WWE Universe voted for King Booker to defend the World Heavyweight Championship, Chris Jericho vs. Batista for the World Heavyweight Championship with Stone Cold Steve Austin as the Special Guest Referee and Ric Flair teaming with Rowdy Roddy Piper to take on the Spirit Squad.

    A voice-over is then heard once again:

    "At Cyber Sunday you the WWE Universe (Wrestling Clique Users) will decide the matches, stipulations and in one case the winner of a match as Cyber Sunday returns!"




    WWE Cyber Sunday comes your way Sunday 24th October live on pay per view!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Cole:
    Welcome back to WWE Superstars everyone and it has been some night so far as we move ever closer to Cyber Sunday where we have a stacked card for the event. The WWE Champion, Jack Swagger will defend the title against none other than Triple H in arguably his biggest challenge of his career so far. Will The Game walk out victorious or will the All American American hold onto the title once again?
    King:
    We will have to wait and find out Cole and don’t forget we have a battle of the giants as the Big Show goes toe-to-toe with Kane. We have no idea what type of match it will be though. The fans will get to choose whether these two behemoths collide in an I Quit Match, a Street Fight or my personal favourite, an Inferno Match!
    Cole:
    But that is all on Sunday King. We have the first of two RAW matches about to take place and here come the undefeated and absolutely dominant duo known as Rough Justice!! Tyler Reks and Vance Archer have been unstoppable since debuting on Monday Night RAW a number of weeks ago but tonight they face their toughest test.

    Red and black lights flash with the rock music of Reks and Archer playing and smoke filling the arena as well. Rough Justice make their slow and methodical entrance down the ramp as the crowd give them a mixed reaction. Some clearly boo them for the heels they are but their impressive performances have earned them some cheers from the more hardcore demographic in the audience. Reks and Archer pace around the ring as they await their opponents. A nice pop for Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin as the World’s Greatest Tag Team bound down the ramp to the ring. The duo look ready to go up against Rough Justice after being defeated in 6-man tag action on RAW this past Monday. Both teams are ready as referee Chad Patton gets us started by asking for the bell.


    TAG TEAM MATCH
    Rough Justice vs. The World’s Greatest Tag Team



    Vance Archer starts the contest with Charlie Haas and he does it with a bang as he instantly turns his opponent inside out with a monumental LARIAT! The crowd gasp at the impact as Shelton Benjamin looks concerned in his corner and the referee checks on Haas. Archer is not going to stop there though as he gets Haas to his feet powerfully and throws Haas across the ring with an OVERHEAD BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX as Haas crashes hard down on the canvas and some of the crowd cheer the brutality they are seeing from Archer. Haas is motionless on the mat and Archer isn’t done yet as he gets one half of the World’s Greatest Tag Team to his feet again and this time slams him down to the canvas with a FALLAWAY SLAM! Haas goes flying to the outside of the ring under the bottom rope and lands with an audible thud. Benjamin scurries round the ring on the outside to check on his partner but Archer cuts him off as he Irish whips Haas brutally into the STEEL STEPS!

    The sound echoes throughout the arena as the referee checks on Haas who refuses to give up and Benjamin gets back on the ring apron hoping somehow that Haas can make a tag. Archer Irish whips Haas hard into the turnbuckle where Tyler Reks is standing and the Rough Justice member is tagged in. The destruction doesn’t stop as Reks runs full speed ahead at Haas and connects with a big CORNER SPLASH. Reks follows that up with a huge FLAPJACK driving Charlie Haas face-first into the canvas. Shelton is now getting really frustrated on the outside and tries to get the crowd behind Haas. Reks just keeps his intense stare going as Haas very slowly gets to his feet with the help of the ring ropes. Reks urges Haas to come at him and he obliges but he only runs straight into a BIG BOOT! Haas hits the canvas again hard as Reks covers; 1… 2… Shelton Benjamin breaks up the pin attempt!

    That does not go down with Reks in the ring who looks at Archer on the outside. The Rough Justice member gets in the ring and ploughs through Benjamin as he flies to the outside. Archer follows Shelton to the outside and gets him in position delivering a CHOKESLAM on the outside! Shelton Benjamin is motionless as the crowd gasp at the impact of his body hitting the floor. Archer now gets back in the ring as Reks tosses Haas across the ring with a huge SUPLEX. Archer picks up Haas on his shoulders and goes to stand on the second rope with Haas in devastating position for THE SENTENCING! Archer drops Haas from the second rope across the knee of Tyler Reks in a brutal move which might just have broken the ribs of Charlie Haas. Tyler Reks hooks the leg; 1……… 2……… 3! Rough Justice continue their dominance in the tag team division and pick up an impressive win on WWE Superstars.
    Spoiler:

    Winners: Rough Justice


    Cole:
    Rough Justice win again and Tyler Reks and Vance Archer look utterly unstoppable. Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin are former WWE Tag Team Champions and Rough Justice just absolutely destroyed them here tonight on Superstars. That Chokeslam to Shelton Benjamin on the outside was absolutely sickening. Who in the world can stop these two powerhouses King?
    King:
    Honestly I’m not sure there is anyone at this point Cole. Anyone who has stood in their way has been dispatched with ease. Reks and Archer may be the two most dominant superstars in the entire WWE right now. As you say The World’s Greatest Tag Team are one heck of a team but Reks and Archer just annihilated them. That move they use off the ropes, The Sentencing is absolutely brutal.
    Cole:
    It certainly is and we have yet to see someone get up from that. It might be a long time before anyone can stop Reks and Archer collectively known as Rough Justice!

    In the ring Reks and Archer celebrate another victory as the lights go dim and red, white and black flashing lights accompany their loud rock music to underline how much of a special act they are. Medical staff attend to Shelton Benjamin on the outside as he hasn’t moved since being planted by Vance Archer on the outside with that Chokeslam. The screen fades as WWE Superstars goes to another commercial break.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



    We return to Superstars with the theme song playing for Cyber Sunday and a video package playing for the WWE Championship bout between Jack Swagger and Triple H at the interactive pay per view in just three nights. We flashback to the last time these two met with the WWE Championship on the line at Night of Champions. We go back to the final moments of the match.

    Quote Originally Posted by Night of Champions

Triple H is going for another Pedigree but the WWE Champion reverses and manages to once again hook The Game’s ankle!!! Swagger has the ANKLE LOCK in again and on the same ankle as earlier in the match. Triple H yelps in pain as Swagger applies more and more pressure and then suddenly falls and braces the leg of the King of Kings. The WWE Universe go crazy as Triple H screams in pain and has no option but to TAP OUT to the submission hold. Jack Swagger shocks the world and retains the WWE Championship.

    Cole: Jack Swagger has done it! Nobody gave him a prayer of winning this match tonight at Night of Champions but he has proved the world wrong and listen to this place! The Allstate Arena has come unglued!
    The evening following Night of Champions is shown with Triple H beating Batista to win a Beat the Clock Challenge and become the number one contender for the WWE Championship once again. We jump forward to the September 27 edition of RAW with Kofi Kingston facing Triple H in the main event.

    Quote Originally Posted by RAW

Swagger has completely forgotten he is in the middle of a match here and goes outside the ring and gets in the face of Triple H. The Game looks ready to go until Vickie Guerrero gets in between them. Swagger laughs in Triple H’s face knowing he can’t go through the Co-RAW GM to get to him and returns to the ring. But the distraction is huge as Kofi Kingston delivers TROUBLE IN PARADISE!!!!! Kingston pins as the WWE Universe go absolutely crazy. 1……… 2……… 3! Kofi Kingston has beaten the WWE Champion in a shocker on Monday Night RAW!

    Cole: Kofi Kingston has done it! Kingston has beaten the WWE Champion, Jack Swagger! I don’t believe it. Kingston just hit Trouble in Paradise and pinned Swagger one, two, three in the centre of the ring.
    Finally we jump to this past Monday Night on RAW with the WWE Champion, Jack Swagger taking on Randy Orton in the main event but it didn’t end well for the All American American.

    Quote Originally Posted by RAW

Eight security guards come down but an RKO OUT OF NOWHERE takes one out immediately as Triple H clotheslines another two. Orton powerslams one before he delivers another RKO to another. Triple H nails the PEDIGREE on the final security guard as Swagger tries to crawl his way out of the ring. Triple H is having none of it though as The Game does his signature crotch chop before kicking Jack Swagger in the gut. The Game connects with a huge PREDIGREE!!! Jack Swagger is motionless on the canvas as Randy Orton gets out of the ring as he feels his work is done for the night. That leaves Triple H in the ring posing in front of the fallen WWE Champion just days away from their main event clash at Cyber Sunday.
    A voice is then heard at the end of the video: “This Sunday the WWE Championship is on the line as the All American American, Jack Swagger takes on The Game, Triple H to determine who is the dominant man on Monday Night RAW. War is on its way to Cyber Sunday!”

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Cole:
    Welcome back to WWE Superstars everyone and the WWE Championship Match at Cyber Sunday is sure to be a massive one. Jack Swagger got the better of Triple H at Night of Champions and actually made The Game tap out but since then this rivalry has really escalated King. I cannot wait for these two to collide in Minneapolis at Cyber Sunday in just three nights!
    King:
    Swagger has proven his credentials ever since cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase back at Fatal 4 Way against John Cena. He then went on to defend the title against the Chain Gang Solider and as you said Cole he has already beaten Triple H as well. But the X-factor in this match is none other than Vickie Guerrero. You’ve got to believe the RAW Co-General Manager is going to have some sort of say on the outcome.
    Cole:
    Triple H has a lot to think about for sure but we now have a huge main event for you on WWE Superstars as the man that beat John Cena this past Monday on RAW, Chris Masters has another challenge on his hands when he goes one-on-one with The Viper, Randy Orton. And here comes the Apex Predator and he’s not alone!!!

    The crowd go nuts as Randy Orton makes his way down to the ring and is accompanied by none other than John Cena. This is a sight to behold with the two long-time rivals coming together. We know that Cena and Orton will team up at Cyber Sunday against Chris Masters and Carlito. Orton gets in the ring and taunts on one turnbuckle with Cena on the other as the two multiple-time WWE Champions get a monumental pop before the main event tonight on Superstars. The atmosphere completely flips when the Masterpiece, Chris Masters enters with his cocky and arrogant tag team partner Carlito. Masters flexes his muscles and poses at the top of the ramp with fireworks going off before he walks down to the ring and steps inside ordering the referee to make sure Cena stays away from home after this past Monday on RAW. Finally we are ready and the main event gets underway.


    SINGLES MATCH
    Randy Orton w/ John Cena vs. Chris Masters w/ Carlito



    Randy Orton immediately goes after Chris Masters and looks to take the strongman down with a number of punches, forearms and a big clothesline. Masters is rocked as is Carlito on the outside as Cena smirks at the way Orton has made an impact to kick off the main event. Orton finally takes Masters down with a huge CLOTHESLINE as he bursts out of the turnbuckle after being Irish whipped there. Orton goes for the quick cover but unsurprisingly The Masterpiece is quick to kick out and won’t be beaten that fast. Orton is quick to stomp away at Masters as he gets back to his feet. The Viper keeps building momentum as he takes down his opponent with a nice SWINGING NECKBREAKER. Orton goes for the pin once more; 1… 2… Masters kicks out again despite more punishment being inflicted on him. Randy taunts to the crowd who give him a huge ovation as Cena applauds his unlikely ally from the outside.

    Orton is well on top but pandering to the crowd proves to be his downfall as when he turns his attention back to Masters he is Irish whipped and floored with a beautiful POWERSLAM. In one quick moment the momentum has shifted as Masters hooks the leg of Orton; 1… 2… Randy kicks out but The Masterpiece realises this is his moment to strike. Masters Irish whips Orton into the turnbuckle and runs full speed ahead with a huge CORNER CLOTHESLINE before dropping Orton on the back of his head with a picture perfect BACK DROP. Orton writhes in pain as the commentators point out his chronic back and shoulder problems to the WWE Universe. Masters high fives Carlito on the outside which gets him some major heat. The Masterpiece stays focused on the former WWE Champion though and hammers away at Orton until The Apex Predator ducks underneath one and connects with a DROPKICK which rocks Masters. But before Orton can do anything else, Masters lifts Orton quickly and brutally floors him with a SAMOAN DROP! 1…… 2…… Orton just gets the shoulder up.

    Masters is dominating at this juncture in the contest and laughs at his fallen opponent. He stomps away at The Viper until lifting him up into the turnbuckle area in order for him to light up his chest with multiple chops. Masters then shows off his strength by launching Orton half way across the ring as he lands with a thud and the referee checks if he can continue. Carlito trash talks Cena on the outside as this is going on and is heard saying that Cena and Orton are has-beens. Masters smirks at Orton who is laying prone in a heap and covers; 1…… 2…… The Apex Predator kicks out and won’t accept defeat yet against his young upstart opponent. Masters drags Randy to his feet and puts him in a BEARHUG which drives all the air out of his opponent. The anguish is etched all over Orton’s face as he struggles to breathe. John Cena starts banging on the ring skirt to try and get the crowd to help the fan favourite and it seems to work as Randy delivers a couple of elbows to the head of The Masterpiece. But just like that Masters ends the comeback as he nails Orton with a SIDEWALK SLAM and hooks the leg; 1……… 2……… Orton again somehow manages to get the shoulder up.

    Randy is in a real tough spot in this main event match on WWE Superstars as the crowd are extremely concerned with the damage he has taken at the hands of Masters. And it doesn’t look like he is done yet either as The Masterpiece elects to slowly make his way to the top rope. You don’t see this often from the big man and that is why! Masters leaps but is met with a huge DROPKICK from Orton as both men are down in the centre of the ring and the referee begins to count both wrestlers out. He reaches eight before both Masters and Orton are back to their feet and slugging it out once again with The Viper getting the better of The Masterpiece and connecting with three European uppercuts before Irish whipping Masters and nailing him with a SNAP SCOOP POWERSLAM! Masters rolls the ring apron as Cena gets the crowd going in anticipation of what this could lead to for Orton. Is this the turning point in the match?

    Orton is pumped up and senses this is his moment to take out his opponent and pick up a huge win tonight. Randy sees that the Masterpiece has rolled over to the ring apron which is not a position anyone ever wants to be in against The Viper. Randy grabs Masters by the head and props him on the second ring rope before dropping him hard with his patented ROPE-HUNG DDT! Orton opts against going for a pinfall attempt though and instead taunts to the crowd and signals for the RKO!!! Randy like a snake slithers on the ring canvas but as he waits for a groggy Masters to get up to his feet Carlito jumps up onto the ring apron and the referee is immediately distracted. John Cena doesn’t let it happen for long though as he sprints round to the side of the ring and sweeps the legs of Carlito! The superstar from the Caribbean lands with a huge thud on the floor much to the delight of the WWE Universe.

    Back in the ring Orton has been distracted by everything that is going on and as he turns around to try and re-focus on Chris Masters he is met with a brutal CLOTHESLINE which nearly takes the former WWE Champion’s head off. The Masterpiece sees Carlito downed on the outside and realises he probably needs to act fast if he is to beat Orton here tonight. Masters gets Orton to his feet and signals for the MASTER LOCK! Randy realises he has to avoid the monumental hold which has beaten so many men as he grabs hold of the ropes while Masters tries to apply the submission. The referee forces the muscular wrestler to break the hold and he chooses to argue with the official. This is the only moment Randy Orton needs to take advantage as when Masters turns around he is met with a monumental RKO!!! The crowd go absolutely nuts at the suddenness of the manoeuvre as Orton hooks the leg and Cena smiles on the outside; 1……… 2……… 3!
    Spoiler:

    Winner: Randy Orton


    Cole:
    Randy Orton picks up a huge win with that RKO out of nowhere! Masters looks good for large periods in that match but the presence of John Cena on the outside helped to even the playing field when Carlito invariably looked to make an impact and it would be the Apex Predator who picked up a massive win going into their clash at Cyber Sunday in Minneapolis in just a few short days.
    King:
    Orton is so deadly with that RKO. You cannot turn your back on The Viper at any point or he will take you out and that is the tough lesson Chris Masters learned here tonight. Orton and Cena teaming on Sunday though has me intrigued. These two are seemingly getting along well but are they really going to be able to co-exist long-term? Maybe as long as Carlito and Masters are their opponents they will be just fine.
    Cole:
    Orton and Cena is certainly one heck of a team and one that I don’t think anyone was expecting. But Randy Orton proved here tonight he is still at the top of his game. Thank you everyone for joining us on WWE Superstars this week. Goodnight!

    Randy Orton celebrates after beating Chris Masters with John Cena alongside him in the ring. There is definitely some tension between the two but The Viper does seem to acknowledge that Cena helped him win that match by taking care of Carlito on the outside. Cena leaves Orton to bask in his glory as he makes his way up the ramp and the final shot of the show is Randy doing his signature taunt on the ropes with the crowd giving him a huge pop.

    Re: WWE: The New Vision

    Some quick thoughts on Superstars ahead of what is going to be a very unpredictable yet enjoyable Cyber Sunday.

    The tag team of Dibiase/Goldust was always going to be an iffy one given that both want to be Cody's number one priority. It shows here as the chance to one up Goldust gets in the way for Ted and costs the pair the win. I'm definitely keen to see where this storyline goes but part of me feels that Legacy starting up is the best direction to take this feud, although you do need that final piece of the jigsaw to complete the group.

    I like Melina. I think she's very underrated but here she does sound confident. Part of me wanted to go with Gail Kim for my choice but I think I'll go with Melina just to give her a shot at winning the title.

    Finlay gets the win for The Empire and I won't allow that to cast my judgement on what goes down at CS as there is still Smackdown for plenty to happen.

    Rough Justice with another huge win. They are getting to the point where they need to be thrown into the tag title mix, which won't bode well for the champs.

    Nice recap of the Swagger/Trips feud. won't publically reveal my choice for this one but I'm going with the guy that I think opens up some different ways of moving the World Championship forward.

    Finally a decent main event match between two of the tag participants for this Sunday. The result makes me think that Carlito and Masters will get the win to possibly set off a Cena/Orton feud, which would lead nicely into the first paragraph of this review. I can sense that this was shoehorned into the Cyber Sunday card but it actually fits quite nicely if that is the way you are going.

    Overall another enjoyable piece from you Order. Looking forward to Smackdown and Cyber Sunday. Keep up the great work

    WWE Breaking News – Thursday 21st October 2010



    -Yet another change has had to be made to Cyber Sunday as SmackDown superstar Gregory Helms has suffered a broken nose at a WWE live event. Helms was one of the choices to take on Dolph Ziggler for the Intercontinental Championship this weekend in Minneapolis. Rey Mysterio and Evan Bourne will now be joined by the undefeated Alberto Del Rio on the ballot to take on the Show Off. Helms will be out for around a month which has also altered plans going into Survivor Series for SmackDown. The former Cruiserweight Champion has impressed in recent months and was set for a mega push over the coming weeks.

    Well that sucks. I was pretty tempted to pick Helms for this one too. Don't think I will be going down the route of Del Rio though. Toss up between the other two really.

    Smackdown SmackDown Preview


    Friday 22nd October 2010

    We are on the final stop before Cyber Sunday and SmackDown is sure to be another amazing show. Daniel Bryan will challenge Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Championship at the event and he will have a mega match in the main event of SmackDown this Friday. The American Dragon will take on the Straight Edge Saviour, CM Punk who has been on some role as of late as he heads into Cyber Sunday. Punk could be involved in a Triple Threat Match at the event against Edge and Mr Money in the Bank, John Morrison. And talking of Edge, a rivalry will be renewed as the Rated R Superstar takes on the leader of The Empire, Sheamus who he lost the World Heavyweight Championship too. Both Edge and Sheamus will be desperate for some momentum ahead of what is going to be a huge Cyber Sunday pay per view.

    SmackDown also has three other matches announced which are sure to have big implications. Goldust and Ted DiBiase will clash after not getting on for weeks. Cody Rhodes has said it is time that they sorted out their differences and the winner of their match this Friday on SmackDown will become his permanent tag team partner. Will it be the Bizarre One who comes out on top or will the Fortunate Son once again team up with Cody Rhodes?

    Two other contests will also take place with Cyber Sunday implications. Dolph Ziggler will defend his Intercontinental Championship this Sunday but the WWE Universe will get to decide his opponent. The options are Evan Bourne, Rey Mysterio and Alberto Del Rio. But on SmackDown Ziggler will team with the undefeated Mexican Aristocrat to take on the high-flying duo of Bourne and Mysterio. The other match will see one half of the WWE Tag Team Champions Drew McIntyre take on David Hart Smith of The Hart Dynasty. The Empire take on Kidd and Smith at Cyber Sunday for the titles with a special guest referee yet to be decided at Cyber Sunday.

    Tune into SmackDown for all this and more on the final stop before the most interactive pay per view in the WWE.

    Good luck!!

    Smackdown SmackDown - Friday 22nd October 2010


    SmackDown! – 22nd October 2010 – Edmonton, Alberta, Canada


    Cyber Friday


    We see a recap of last week on SmackDown with Daniel Bryan beating Empire member Finlay in the main event with his trademark running knee. The Empire would try and take out the American Dragon only for The Hart Dynasty and Cody Rhodes to make the save. The evening ends with Bryan hitting the running knee on the World Heavyweight Champion, Sheamus to end the show. We then get a hype video for the main event tonight which sees Daniel Bryan taking on the Straight Edge Saviour, CM Punk. That ends and the SmackDown intro plays with fireworks and pyro exploding as the camera pans across the crowd and lands on Josh Mathews and Matt Striker at ringside.

    Mathews:
    Ladies and gentlemen we welcome you to the final Friday Night SmackDown before Cyber Sunday and we have an unbelievable show set for you here tonight in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada with a blockbuster main event. The number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship, Daniel Bryan will go one-on-one with the leader of the Straight Edge Society, CM Punk. This one is going to be off the charts Matt Striker.
    Striker:
    These two men have storied histories inside and outside of the WWE and I firmly believe they will fight against one another for years to come. Bryan must get a win tonight before he goes into war against the leader of The Empire, Sheamus at Cyber Sunday. But quite frankly the wonderful CM Punk is going to be near impossible to beat with his impeccable approach to life.
    Mathews:
    Do you hear yourself?! Well that is our main event but we are kicking off with some match and it has Intercontinental Championship implications. Dolph Ziggler will defend the gold at Cyber Sunday with fans voting for his opponent. Will it be Evan Bourne, Alberto Del Rio or Rey Mysterio? They are all going to have a chance to impress as we kick off SmackDown with tag team action!

    Rey Mysterio is first to enter as his colourful pyro goes off everywhere. The crowd give the former World Heavyweight Champion a big pop as he sprints down the aisle with his pink and black attire on. Mysterio waits in the ring as the exciting Evan Bourne joins him. The former Cruiserweight Champion gets a huge reaction from the Canadian crowd as well. Bourne and Mysterio high five in the ring before the atmosphere changes because of the arrival of none other than the Mexican Aristocrat, Alberto Del Rio. He enters alongside his Associate, Hunico inside an Aston Martin supercar and beeps the horn to annoy the crowd even more. Del Rio has fireworks fall behind him as he steps in between the ropes and talks trash at Mysterio and Bourne. The final piece of the puzzle arrives as the Intercontinental Champion, Dolph Ziggler makes his entrance. The self-proclaimed Picture of Perfection holds the title above his head as we are finally ready to open up SmackDown with some in-ring action.


    TAG TEAM MATCH
    Rey Mysterio & Evan Bourne vs. Dolph Ziggler & Alberto Del Rio



    Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler starts the match with Rey Mysterio and the duo put on some fine action in the opening few minutes. Mysterio connects with a HURRICANRANA before dropkicking Ziggler into prime position for the 619. Rey goes for it but Ziggler refuses to be caught and nails Mysterio with a mega CLOTHESLINE which turns him inside out as the crowd in Canada gasp. Ziggler goes on the front foot and stomps away at the fallen Mysterio before powerfully Irish whipping the underdog into his corner and tagging in Alberto Del Rio. The Mexican Aristocrat comes into some immediate heat because of his actions since debuting on SmackDown but he remains focused and dominates Mysterio. Del Rio delivers some nice kicks before dropping the Master of the 619 with a huge TILT-A-WHIRL BACKBREAKER as Del Rio goes for the pin; 1… 2… Mysterio kicks out.

    Del Rio tags Ziggler back in as the two feign to Irish whip Mysterio into the corner where Evan Bourne is standing only for them to do the opposite and drive Mysterio chest first into their turnbuckle as the ring moves with the impact. Rey is once again motionless on the canvas with Ziggler the one pinning this time; 1… 2… Mysterio shows his resilience and kicks out. Ziggler continues his onslaught by mounting Rey and delivering a series of punches to the head of Mysterio before he taunts and the crowd boo the Intercontinental Champion. Ziggler gets Mysterio to his feet and flicks his hair arrogantly towards Mysterio before taking off and connecting with a beautiful STANDING DROPKICK. 1…… 2…… Rey gets the shoulder up again. Ziggler drags Mysterio over to his corner and once again tags Del Rio back into the match as the heels continue their domination on the former World Heavyweight Champion.

    Alberto slaps Mysterio hard around the face as Mysterio ragdolls to the canvas once more and Del Rio clearly thinks he has things well under control as his Associate, Hunico applauds his work on the outside. Alberto’s showboating costs him though as he goes to take Mysterio down once more with a big CLOTHESLINE but Mysterio ducks underneath and out of desperation connects with his huge trademark BULLDOG! Del Rio’s head is driven hard into the canvas and suddenly both men are down. The crowd sense this is the moment for Mysterio to make a tag as Evan Bourne on the apron gets the WWE Universe behind Mysterio to make a tag. It looks like he is just going to make it but Del Rio tags Ziggler in who quickly connects with an ELBOW to the back of Mysterio to stop him in his tracks as the crowd boo loudly. But it is only temporary as Ziggler gets cocky once more but as he goes for a POWERBOMB on the Master of the 619, Dolph loses balance as Mysterio holds onto the top rope and manages to divert Ziggler over the ropes and to the floor below as Rey makes the tag to Evan Bourne!

    The exciting former Cruiserweight Champion comes out on fire as he goes to the top rope and takes out Ziggler with a huge SOMERSAULT SENTON. Ziggler is out as Bourne is in the ring and DROPKICKS Del Rio off the apron before Hunico gets on the apron but he is met with a huge STANDING ENZUIGIRI from the exciting Bourne. Ziggler is slowly getting back in the ring and is met by Bourne who keeps building his momentum by connecting with a CRADLE SUPLEX as Bourne hooks the leg; 1……… 2……… Dolph just gets the shoulder up and the crowd are now really into this hot opener. Evan doesn’t let up though and sees he has an opportunity to win this match for his team as Mysterio recovers slowly on the apron. Bourne goes to the top rope and jumps looking for something big but Ziggler nearly takes his head off with a picture perfect DROPKICK as the crowd gasp. Is this it?! 1……… 2……… Bourne just gets the shoulder up as both men lay motionless in the middle of the ring as their tag team partners call for the tag on the apron.

    After a few seconds of laying on the ring mat, both Bourne and Ziggler do make it into their corners and make hot tags to Del Rio and Mysterio respectively. It is the Master of the 619 that dominates by delivering a number of kicks and then wiping Alberto out with a huge SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT to the delight of the crowd. Rey keeps the pace going as he rolls through a sunset flip attempt and nails Del Rio with a ROUNDHOUSE KICK to the side of the head before collapsing on his opponent into a pin attempt; 1………… 2………… Alberto Del Rio keeps his streak intact and kicks out just in time! Mysterio cannot believe but he stays focused on the Mexican Aristocrat and looks to be in complete control. Rey Irish whips Del Rio into his corner and chops Del Rio down into the sitting position. Rey sprints from the opposite corner and connects with a BRONCO BUSTER! The fans love it as Mysterio tags Bourne back into the match and the two Cruiserweights clearly have something planned.

    Bourne goes to the top rope as Mysterio puts Del Rio on the ropes in perfect position for the 619! Rey runs but Hunico leaps onto the apron and takes the move instead of Del Rio! Mysterio for one moment is hesitant as Bourne stays perched on the top rope but Alberto manages to tag Ziggler back into the contest. Dolph and Rey go at it as Bourne leaps and takes out Del Rio with a huge CROSSBODY as he tries to get involved. Alberto rolls to the outside as Ziggler clotheslines Mysterio to the outside. That leaves Bourne and Ziggler as the two legal men in the ring, well Dolph is anyway. Evan Bourne finds himself on the apron and is ready to deliver something big. He springboards into the ring but his jaw is collapsed by a huge SUPERKICK!!! Dolph Ziggler nails Bourne with the brutal manoeuvre. The Intercontinental Champion covers Bourne; 1…………… 2…………… 3! It is over!
    Spoiler:

    Winners: Dolph Ziggler & Alberto Del Rio


    Mathews:
    What a match as Dolph Ziggler is the man to get the momentum just two days before he has to defend the Intercontinental Champion at Cyber Sunday. Ziggler looked good throughout and the way he caught Evan Bourne with that Superkick was truly extraordinary. Whoever ends up facing Ziggler for the title in Minneapolis we are in for a treat Matt as this tag team contest to kick us off this evening showed.
    Striker:
    You are not wrong Josh. Ziggler continues his impressive run in recent weeks and Alberto Del Rio stays undefeated since coming to SmackDown. But both Bourne and Mysterio as much as it pains me to say were impressive tonight. Whoever fights for the Intercontinental Championship on Sunday could well steal the show.
    Mathews:
    I think that is a safe prediction Matt after what we just witnessed. And don’t forget SmackDown has several matches at Cyber Sunday this weekend but tonight Daniel Bryan will take on the Straight Edge Saviour, CM Punk and the leader of the Straight Edge Savour has something on his mind we understand.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The camera cuts backstage to a deserted corridor where CM Punk is standing flanked by Luke Gallows, Mike Knox and Serena as he looks intensely into the lens and clearly has something he wants to say ahead of tonight’s main event match with Daniel Bryan.

    Straight Edge Saviour – CM Punk:
    My name is CM Punk, your Straight Edge Saviour, and tonight I will once again lead you people to the best way of living through beating down your so-called hero Daniel Bryan just days before Cyber Sunday. Last week I showed the world SmackDown is now being run by the Straight Edge Society when I defeated Edge and John Morrison was taken care of by the dominant duo known as Luke Gallows and Mike Knox. And with the anti-DIVA, Serena by my side we are proving week after week that Straight Edge is the only way to live your life.

    You see we don’t drink, we don’t do drugs, we don’t smoke. Our addiction is competition and we will not stop until all four of us are holding championship gold. And tonight is the first step on that journey as I destroy Daniel Bryan. Then I will demand what I truly deserve and that is an opportunity at the World Heavyweight Championship. You people have been warned, Straight Edge is taking over, CM Punk is your Saviour and you will embrace me for the hero that I am.

    With that the camera focuses in on CM Punk, Gallows, Knox and Serena as they all smirk and we go to a commercial break and the don’t try this at home video.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Mathews:
    Welcome back to SmackDown everyone and CM Punk is ready and focused for his match with Daniel Bryan in the main event. He truly believes Straight Edge is the only way to live and that if you don’t you are beneath him and his society. That is going to be one hell of a match between Punk and Bryan.
    Striker:
    Oh no doubt about it but who are you to argue with CM Punk Josh? Everything the Straight Edge Saviour has said he has more than lived up to. He has brought Luke Gallows, Mike Knox and Serena into the light and he is here to bring SmackDown into a new and more prosperous era. CM Punk is what the WWE needs right now.
    Mathews:
    Could you be campaigning for a spot in the Straight Edge Society any more? Anyway, it is time to switch our attention now to a very important match as Goldust takes on Ted DiBiase. The winner will become the permanent tag team partner of Cody Rhodes as last night on Superstars Cody had had enough of the two not getting along. This one could be very interesting.

    First out to the ring is none other than Cody Rhodes who gets a really nice reaction from the crowd. He doesn’t join Mathews and Striker on commentary but instead sits on a chair to the side of the announce table and is clearly going to watch how things unfold between his former Legacy tag team partner and his brother. Next to enter is none other than Goldust who gets a really nice reaction from the fans in Canada and is clearly respected for all that he has done in his long and eventful WWE career. The Bizarre One gets in the ring and awaits the young upstart Ted DiBiase. The Fortunate Son struts to the ring clearly not thinking this is going to be much of a challenge as Cody looks a little concerned on the outside of the lack of seriousness in his demeanour. DiBiase gets in the ring as the bell sounds and this contest is underway.


    SINGLES MATCH
    Goldust vs. Ted DiBiase
    *Winner becomes the permanent tag team partner of Cody Rhodes



    Goldust goes straight after Ted DiBiase and it is clear he is not happy about the arrogant former Legacy member being so confident. The WWE veteran picks up DiBiase and drives him into the turnbuckle before delivering a number of punches to his opponent which rock the young superstar. Goldust continues his onslaught and picks up DiBiase before scoop slamming him to the canvas and stomping away before the referee pulls the fan favourite off him and threatens disqualification if he doesn’t listen. This has clearly become personal for the son of the American Dream. Goldust gets DiBiase to his feet and Irish whips him before connecting with an INVERTED ATOMIC DROP as the Fortunate Son holds his nether regions. Goldust plants DiBiase with a big SPINEBUSTER before going for the first pin attempt of the match; 1… 2… Ted DiBiase kicks out and won’t be beaten by Goldust this early in the match.

    DiBiase just can’t get out of the blocks in this contest but things are about to change as Goldust uncharacteristically goes to the top rope and looks into the crowd. The former Intercontinental Champion leaps backwards and twists looking for a big CROSSBODY but DiBiase drives all of the air out of his body with a perfect DROPKICK out of nowhere which makes the crowd gasp. Cody Rhodes stands up out of his chair at seeing the move as he takes everything in that is going on in this crucial match which is set to have an impact on the future of his career. DiBiase ups the intensity after gathering himself and mounts Goldust hammering away at his painted face. DiBiase lifts Goldust to his feet before Irish whipping the Bizarre One, running behind him and as Goldust turns around he is met with a huge CLOTHESLINE! DiBiase covers; 1…… 2…… Goldust is the one to kick out on this occasion.

    DiBiase looks to continue to build momentum stomping away at Goldust and driving the air out of his lungs. The former member of Legacy slows the pace down and locks in a body scissors on the veteran as he continues to work on the ribs and midriff of his opponent. DiBiase punches Goldust in the side as he continues to apply pressure which gets the crowd to give him heat and start to chant for Goldust as Cody Rhodes looks on from ringside. Goldust starts to fight back and elbows DiBiase repeatedly until he breaks the hold. DiBiase is quick to get back on top though as he gets Goldie back to his feet and delivers a SITOUT SPINEBUSTER. 1……… 2……… Goldust shows his resilience in kicking out much to the frustration of DiBiase. Ted argues with the referee over the count but he confirms it was just a two count. And that allows Goldust to crawl over to the ropes. DiBiase goes after him but Goldust pulls down the top rope as DiBiase crashes and burns to the outside.

    That gives Goldust the opportunity to get his breath back as Cody Rhodes looks at DiBiase with concern. The referee starts to count DiBiase out but before long Goldust goes to the outside and returns the Fortunate Son to the ring. Goldust Irish whips the man he is trying to beat to become Cody’s permanent tag team partner and delivers a couple of clotheslines. DiBiase ducks under a third but on the rebound he is met with a huge SNAP SCOOP POWERSLAM as Goldust hooks the leg; 1………… 2………… DiBiase just gets his shoulder up in time. The SmackDown crowd in attendance are solidly behind Goldust as Cody Rhodes smiles on the outside and for the first time may be showing who he wants to win the match. Goldust calls for the Final Cut as DiBiase gets back to his feet but Ted rolls him up. Could this be it?! 1………… 2………… Goldust kicks out but DiBiase tries to lock in the COBRA CLUTCH! Goldust sidesteps though and before the crowd can believe what has happened connects with the FINAL CUT!!! Goldust covers; 1………… 2………… 3! Goldust is now the permanent tag team partner of Cody Rhodes.
    Spoiler:

    Winner: Goldust


    Mathews:
    Goldust has done it! He connects with the Final Cut out of nowhere and will be the permanent tag team partner of Cody Rhodes from now on. Ted DiBiase tried everything he could to beat Goldust but it wasn’t to be and Cody and Goldust will now focus on trying to challenge for the WWE Tag Team Championship once again.
    Striker:
    But a moment for poor Ted DiBiase. Where does his career go from here? You have to believe he put all his eggs in one basket here tonight and he failed to beat Goldust. And look at this disgraceful Cody Rhodes and the smile on his face. It is clear he never wanted to team up with his former Legacy team-mate again anyway. What a joke!
    Mathews:
    Oh Matt please. Cody is happy for Goldust and I’m sure he’d have been happy for Ted DiBiase had he picked up the win. That was a huge win for Goldust and I would love to see this duo take on The Empire down the line no doubt about it.

    Back in the ring Cody Rhodes hugs Goldust and congratulates him on the big win. Goldust is clearly a bit emotional as Ted DiBiase tries to attack the man he just lost to! But before he can do any damage, Cody gets hold of DiBiase and floors him with CROSS RHODES! Cody and Goldust celebrate as the crowd go wild at what they just witnessed. The screen fades as SmackDown goes to a commercial break.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    We return to SmackDown and the number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship, Daniel Bryan is backstage with interviewer Byron Saxton.

    Backstage Interviewer – Byron Saxton:
    Welcome back to SmackDown everyone and please welcome my guest at this time he is the man that takes on CM Punk in the main event tonight, the American Dragon, DANIEL BRYAN!

    The crowd pop loudly for Daniel Bryan who smiles at the reaction he gets.

    Backstage Interviewer – Byron Saxton:
    Daniel tonight you take on the Straight Edge Saviour CM Punk and on Sunday you face Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Championship. But my question for you here tonight is can you combat the numbers game the Straight Edge Society will try to use against you and even make it to Cyber Sunday?

    The American Dragon – Daniel Bryan:
    Honestly, I don’t know. CM Punk has got followers that will do anything for him and that puts me in severe jeopardy tonight ahead of facing Sheamus on Sunday. But I’ve been used to overcoming the numbers my entire life. And hell, the last few weeks I’ve been fighting off The Empire so the Straight Edge Society are no different. I’m Daniel Bryan and I’ll always fight. It may not be wise, people may tell me to preserve myself for this Sunday but when I’m challenged I will go out there each and every night and prove I am the best on SmackDown. I am the best in the WWE. And I will be the World Heavyweight Champion after Sunday!

    With that short but succinct response, Bryan walks off the set and continues to do some stretching ahead of his main event match with CM Punk later tonight.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Mathews:
    Daniel Bryan is fired up but you have to believe CM Punk and his cronies could cause a real problem for the American Dragon tonight. Bryan not only has to survive facing Punk and the Straight Edge Society but he also has to somehow stay in good shape ahead of his World Heavyweight Championship match at Cyber Sunday against the leader of The Empire, Sheamus.
    Striker:
    Bryan is quite simply an idiot. Why on earth would you take this match tonight against CM Punk? He’ll only have himself to blame when he loses to Sheamus at Cyber Sunday this Sunday. And speaking of The Empire it is time for Drew McIntyre to take on David Hart Smith just days before The Hart Dynasty challenge for the WWE Tag Team Championship at the pay per view.
    Mathews:
    Indeed it is and don’t forget that match will have a special guest referee. It will either be SmackDown General Manager, Theodore Long, Hall of Famer Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart or none other than William Regal who had to recently retire. And here comes Drew McIntyre, Finlay and Paul Burchill in preparation for this singles match.

    The slow and methodical music of The Empire hits as McIntyre dressed to compete walks down to the ring. Finlay and Paul Burchill are both in wrestling gear as well and it appears they will be hanging around the ring for the upcoming contest. McIntyre gets in the ring but before The Hart Dynasty can enter he grabs a microphone and clearly has something on his mind.

    WWE Tag Team Champion – Drew McIntyre:
    This Sunday, myself and Finlay will defend these WWE Tag Team Championships against The Hart Dynasty once again. And it goes without saying The Empire will destroy our opponents whatever they throw at us. And we will also have a special guest referee for the match this Sunday. You can pick the bias SmackDown GM, Teddy Long, that cripple who can hardly walk Bret Hart or none other than this man. Please welcome the honorary leader of The Empire, the man myself, Finlay, Sheamus and Paul Burchill owe all of our careers to, none other than WILLIAM REGAL!!!



    The crowd erupts as William Regal makes his return to SmackDown a few months after being forced to retire because of long-term injury problems. Regal struts down the ramp to join McIntyre, Finlay and Burchill in the ring and shakes all of their hands. Regal, Finlay and Burchill exit the ring leaving McIntyre with the referee and the ring announcer as they await their opponents.

    The Hart Dynasty guitar riff hits and the crowd pop once more for the former WWE Tag Team Champions. Tyson Kidd, David Hart Smith and Natalya walk out on to the stage in their trademark pink and black attire. This time it is Smith who has a microphone in hand and has something he wants to say as well.


    David Hart Smith:
    Well you may have William Regal but with all due respect we anticipated you’d be bringing him with you here tonight campaigning for votes ahead of Cyber Sunday. But let’s face it there is only one man who is going to be the special guest referee and it is going to be quite a moment when myself and Tyson beat you for the WWE Tag Team titles. And this man is going to raise our hands in victory!



    BRET HART is here! The Hitman walks through the curtain and the crowd give him a standing ovation and ‘holy shit’ chants. Hart accompanies Smith, Kidd and Natalya down to the ring as The Empire look rattled ahead of the match between Smith and McIntyre finally getting underway as the bell rings.


    SINGLES MATCH
    David Hart Smith vs. Drew McIntyre



    Drew McIntyre sprints towards David Hart Smith and tries to hammer away at the member of The Hart Dynasty but Smith gets his hands up and begins to throw some big bombs of his own as the crowd cheer at the two big men going at it. McIntyre eventually kicks Smith in the gut to get on top before Irish whipping him into the turnbuckle. McIntyre sprints and hits a CORNER CLOTHESLINE to Smith which rocks him. McIntyre follows that up with a nice DELAYED VERTICAL SUPLEX showing his power and mocking the former WWE Tag Team Champion as that is one of his favourite moves of course. Drew takes in the applause of William Regal on the outside as he continues to build momentum and stops away at the fallen Smith. McIntyre lifts Smith to his feet and gets him on his shoulders clearly looking for something high impact. The son of the British Bulldog wriggles free though and plants McIntyre with a DDT out of nowhere. The crowd cheer as Bret Hart smiles alongside Natalya and Tyson Kidd on the outside.

    It’s now Smith’s turn to get some momentum going in the match as he lifts McIntyre to his feet and connects with a few hard chops which light up the chest of the Sinister Scotsman. The crowd ‘Woo’ at each one before Smith Irish whips McIntyre and delivers a BIG BOOT which connects with the head of the WWE Tag Team Champion who drops to the canvas and rolls to the outside to try and catch a breather from the suddenly relentless attack of Smith. The Hart Dynasty member is having none of it though and realises he can’t let Drew get his breath back so quickly goes to the outside and returns McIntyre to the ring. Finlay thinks about getting involved but Tyson Kidd is quick on the scene to make sure he knows that would be a bad idea. Smith lifts Drew McIntyre high up in the air and this time it is him that delivers a picture perfect DELAYED VERTICAL SUPLEX as all the blood rushes to McIntyre’s head. 1…… 2…… McIntyre kicks out and won’t be beaten at this juncture in the match.

    Smith is in control and continues to build momentum against the Sinister Scotsman as he Irish whips him into the turnbuckle and delivers a corner clothesline which takes McIntyre to the canvas once again. Smith waits for his opponent to get back up to his feet before he goes behind and drops the former Intercontinental Champion with a perfect GERMAN SUPLEX. Smith goes for a cover; 1…… 2…… McIntyre kicks out. Smith stays focused and calls for the BULLDOG BOMB, his running sitout powerbomb but quickly Paul Burchill is up on the apron. Tyson Kidd sees it and runs round the ring and grabs The Ripper off the apron as his head bounces hard. The referee has lost control as on the other side of the ring Finlay grabs Smith but the Hart Dynasty member is able to force him off and delivers a BIG BOOT knocking Finlay to the floor. Bret Hart cheers from the outside with Smith well on top now.

    But just like that William Regal on the outside nails Tyson Kidd with a short-arm clothesline as half the crowd boo and half the crowd cheer at the involvement of the WWE legend. Back in the ring Smith and McIntyre go at it with everyone sprawled all around the ringside area. David Hart Smith takes control with some big punches but out of nowhere he is completely floored with a huge headbutt McIntyre calls the GLASGOW KISS. Smith staggers all over the place as Drew even holds his head because of the impact of the move. Then just like that Drew McIntyre delivers the FUTURE SHOCK DDT!!! This one is academic as McIntyre hooks the leg and the referee goes to the mat to make the count; 1…………… 2…………… 3! The Sinister Scotsman picks up a big win before Cyber Sunday to give The Empire momentum going into their WWE Tag Team Championship match.
    Spoiler:

    Winner: Drew McIntyre


    Mathews:
    What a win for Drew McIntyre! The Sinister Scotsman picks up a big win ahead of The Empire defending their WWE Tag Team Championship this Sunday against The Hart Dynasty. And after what we just saw with William Regal getting involved if he is voted as special guest referee by the WWE fans in attendance it could be bad news for Tyson Kidd and David Hart Smith.
    Striker:
    A lot is riding on what the WWE fans in attendance at Cyber Sunday decide that much we do know. William Regal would give The Empire a decided advantage but the same can be said of Bret Hart and The Hart Dynasty. And the complete unknown is if General Manager Theodore Long is the man put in charge of the WWE Tag Team Championship contest. For my money, he shouldn’t even be allowed to be an option.
    Mathews:
    Oh come on Josh. Theodore Long would call it right down the middle if he gets the decision to referee the match. Big win for Drew McIntyre tonight nonetheless. And another man who will be looking for some big wins when he eventually debuts on SmackDown is none other than MARCUS COR VON!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



    [i]The Alpha Male, Marcus Cor Von is coming to SmackDown!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Mathews:
    Welcome back to SmackDown everyone and Marcus Cor Von is sure to make a big impact here when he finally debuts. The Alpha Male is talking a big game for sure. It has been quite a night so far as we are just two days away from Cyber Sunday where there is a stacked card. The leader of The Empire, Sheamus will take on Daniel Bryan for the World Heavyweight Championship.
    Striker:
    He will and the Celtic Warrior faces a tough test here tonight against the Rated R Superstar and the man he won the title from, Edge. It was at SummerSlam inside a Steel Cage that Sheamus backed up all his talking to win the gold and he will want a big win here tonight as well just days before colliding with the American Dragon, Daniel Bryan.
    Mathews:
    It could be a match that steals the show this Sunday for sure. And the fans will pick the match stipulation. It will either a Submission match, Falls Count Anywhere or a Tables match. But first the leader of The Empire has a big task ahead as here comes the Rated R Superstar!!

    Edge’s music hits and he gets a huge pop from the crowd as he stands with smoke machines pumping out dry ice onto the stage and he sets off his fireworks to another huge cheer. Edge walks swiftly down the ramp and gets between the ropes as he waits for the World Heavyweight Champion to arrive.

    Sheamus bursts through the curtain as the crowd showers him with boos and clearly disapprove of him holding the World Heavyweight Championship. The Celtic Warrior just smirks but at the same time looks incredibly intense as he strides down the ramp and takes the title off from around his waist. He takes no time in holding the strap up right in front of Edge’s face to underline he is the World Heavyweight Champion. With that Edge throws a right hand and we are underway!



    NON-TITLE SINGLES MATCH
    Sheamus vs. Edge



    Edge hammers away at Sheamus who has been stunned by the onslaught of the Rated R Superstar with the World Heavyweight Champion’s arrogance costing him dearly. Edge throws punch after punch, chop after chop and delivers a few kicks to the gut before referee Jack Doan orders him off the leader of The Empire. Edge backtracks momentarily as Sheamus staggers to the centre of the ring only to be met with a beautiful SPINNING WHEEL KICK from the Ultimate Opportunist. The crowd are solid in their support for Edge who looks almost crazed in his focus on taking out Sheamus. He stomps away at the World Heavyweight Champion before lifting him to his feet again and clotheslining him to the outside of the ring. The crowd cheer as Edge taunts and Sheamus staggers to his feet only to be met with a BASEBALL SLIDE which sends the Irishman flying into the barricade wall.

    The referee tries to stop Edge going to the outside but the Rated R Superstar is having none of it as he sidesteps and rolls under the bottom rope. Edge picks Sheamus up and drives the Celtic Warrior’s head into the ring apron before looking to Irish whip him into the steel steps. Sheamus shows some power in resisting though and in turn Irish whips Edge into the steel steps instead! The sound of his body hitting the steel echoes throughout the arena as Sheamus rolls back into the ring and lays for a few seconds on the canvas trying to get his breath back after being dominated from the moment the bell rung. The referee begins to count out Edge but the Rated R Superstar gets back into the ring on six and is met by Sheamus who has a second wind. The World Heavyweight Champion hammers away at Edge, but he returns the favour and the crowd both cheer loudly as they hammer away at one another. In the end, Sheamus goes low with a kick to shock Edge before he delivers a huge European uppercut, dropping his opponent to the mat.

    Sheamus stomps away at the man he won the World Heavyweight Championship from as the crowd boo loudly. The Celtic Warrior is on top for the first time in the contest now and throws Edge into the turnbuckle before connecting with more punches to the head and gut of his opponent. With Edge hunched over, Sheamus now picks him up and throws him half way across the ring with an impactful FALLAWAY SLAM! Sheamus hooks the leg for the first time; 1…… 2…… Edge gets the shoulder up and refuses to be beaten this early in the bout. Sheamus doesn’t show any frustration though and immediately grabs the left leg of Edge and puts him a one-legged Boston Crab. The World Heavyweight Champion knows he isn’t going to win the match with the submission but thinks he can ground the Rated R Superstar by taking one of his legs out of commission. Sheamus locks the hold in for a good minute or so before Edge reaches the ropes and the referee orders him to break the hold.

    Sheamus is relentless in trying to keep his momentum going, getting Edge over his shoulder and driving the air out of him with a POWERSLAM. He covers but Edge once more refuses to be beaten. The Celtic Warrior believes he now has all the momentum and Irish whips Edge into the turnbuckle. Sheamus sprints and delivers a hard shoulder thrust to the ribs of his opponent before connecting with a ROLLING FIREMAN’S CARRY SENTON. Sheamus goes to unfamiliar territory on the top rope and hurls himself at Edge as the Rated R Superstar gets back to his feet, taking him down with a shoulder tackle; 1………… 2………… The Ultimate Opportunist kicks out again. For the first time the World Heavyweight Champion lets out a sigh as he feels he is doing enough to win the match now. With that the Celtic Warrior stands in the corner and calls for the BROGUE KICK which gets him some serious heat.

    Sheamus waits for Edge to get up and sprints at the Rated R Superstar as he looks to take his head off but he is unable to do so. Edge ducks underneath and on the rebound he takes him out with a nice DROPKICK. Sheamus is immediately back up but Edge gives himself some time to recover as he grabs the Irishman by the head and delivers the EDGECUTION, his jumping DDT which drives Sheamus’ head into the canvas. Edge doesn’t have enough in the tank to cover his opponent and instead lays on his back alongside the leader of The Empire as the referee counts both men out. At seven, Edge and Sheamus are both back to their feet and start throwing big punches at one another once more as the crowd get louder and louder at the superb match they are witnessing here on SmackDown. This time it is Edge who gets the better of Sheamus who hits a superb NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX.

    Instead of pinning, Edge looks to hit another move and delivers a big FLAPJACK and his infamous DOWNWARD SPIRAL. Now the Rated R Superstar hooks the leg; 1………… 2………… Sheamus shows some resilience this time in kicking out. The crowd are popping loud as they want Edge to pick up a big win over the World Heavyweight Champion just a couple of days before Cyber Sunday. The Rated R Superstar perches himself in the corner and calls for the SPEAR!!! But before he can start running the referee is distracted by Luke Gallows and Mike Knox who are both creating a commotion on the outside and jump up on the apron threatening to get involved. On the other side of the ring CM Punk unbeknown to the referee nails Edge in the head with a LEAD PIPE!!! Punk quickly jumps back over the barricade as Knox and Gallows jump down from the apron and a groggy Sheamus crawls into the cover not believing his luck; 1……… 2……… 3! Sheamus defeats Edge thanks to the Straight Edge Society!
    Spoiler:

    Winner: Sheamus


    Mathews:
    Damn it! Sheamus defeats Edge as once again the Straight Edge Society make the Rated R Superstar their target. At some point Edge is going to snap back but the numbers are always going to be a factor unless he can find some allies. The World Heavyweight Champions gets some momentum as he heads into Cyber Sunday.
    Striker:
    CM Punk is just brilliant isn’t he?! What better way to make an impact than the Straight Edge Saviour letting Mike Knox and Luke Gallows cause a distraction in order for him to take out Edge. CM Punk has a plan every week here on SmackDown and it is quite brilliant how they come together. The Straight Edge Society are simply tremendous.
    Mathews:
    Oh please Matt. That was just a blindside attack which Edge had no chance of overcoming. I cannot wait to see the Rated R Superstar get his hands on CM Punk and get some revenge sooner rather than later. What a match that was before it was ruined by the Straight Edge Society. Sheamus and Edge always deliver when they’re in the ring together.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    After a promo for Cyber Sunday this weekend, we head backstage to Bryon Saxton who is standing by in the interview area with microphone in hand.

    Backstage Interviewer – Byron Saxton:
    Ladies and gentleman, please welcome my guest at this time, he is the WWE Cruiserweight Champion, the World Warrior, KAVAL!

    The crowd is mixed in their response to Kaval who has impressed since becoming the Cruiserweight Champion back at the beginning of August against Evan Bourne. Bryon then continues his interview.

    Backstage Interviewer – Byron Saxton:
    Kaval, we have just learned that at Cyber Sunday there will be a bonus match with three choices for the WWE fans in attendance to vote for. One of those is a Cruiserweight Championship match which would see you defend against none other than Primo who you have had your run-ins with as of late. What are your thoughts and why should fans vote for you?

    Cruiserweight Champion - Kaval:
    Since debuting in the WWE, I have proven my ability. This floundering division has had new life breathed into it by me and only me. Evan Bourne was dethroned and I have taken on all challengers since. Scotty 2 Hotty has been beaten, JTG has been beaten and next Primo will be beaten. If you want to see a masterclass from the world’s best Cruiserweight then there is only one match you will want to see at Cyber Sunday. The World Warrior, Kaval, wiping the floor with Primo and remaining your WWE Cruiserweight Champion.

    With that Kaval walks off the set and the camera cuts back to the announce table with Josh Mathews and Matt Striker.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Mathews:
    Welcome back to SmackDown everyone and the Cruiserweight Champion, Kaval is fully focused on facing Primo at Cyber Sunday should the fans choose they want to see that match. But now we switch gears and there is DIVA’s action as the DIVA’s Champion, Mickie James teams up with Gail Kim to take on the team of LayCool.
    Striker:
    Don’t forget at Cyber Sunday Mickie James will defend her title against either Gail Kim, Alicia Fox or Melina but that will be decided on the night in Minneapolis. Gail Kim will look to impress tonight but the dynamic between her and the DIVA’s Champion will be very interesting to see. And Michelle McCool and Layla can make a point as well after they were overlooked as being possible challengers.
    Mathews:
    You make good points for once Matt and this match is sure to be exciting throughout. This has been some episode of SmackDown and it continues with the DIVA’s Champion. Listen to this ovation from the WWE fans in attendance.

    Mickie James bursts through the curtain and gets a huge ovation as she does. Mickie has been on some roll since becoming the DIVA’s Champion. Mickie holds the title aloft when she gets in the ring as the crowd pop once again for her. The crowd erupt again as none other than Gail Kim makes her way down the aisle. Tonight she teams with Mickie but on Sunday she could face the DIVA’s Champion. The mood changes as LayCool make their way slowly down to the ring and look cocky and confident as ever. Michelle talks trash to Mickie James as Layla focuses on Gail Kim before the referee controls all four and we are underway.


    TAG TEAM MATCH
    Mickie James & Gail Kim vs. LayCool



    Gail Kim and Michelle McCool start for their respective teams and they go at it with big punches, forearms and chops before Michelle takes control with a stiff and swift kick to the gut. Michelle tosses Gail to the floor with a snapmare before delivering a dropkick to the head of Kim in the seated position. McCool is quick to tag Layla in and expects her tag team partner to keep the momentum going for the duo this evening on SmackDown. Layla hammers away at Gail Kim and Irish whips her into the turnbuckle as she runs and drives all the air out of her opponent with a corner clothesline. Kim is gasping for air as Mickie James tries to get the crowd behind her by stamping on the steel steps a few times. Layla laughs at how dominant she is being over Gail Kim and that proves to be her downfall as she is caught with a huge ROUNDHOUSE KICK out of nowhere! And Gail isn’t done there as she hoists Layla up and connects with a huge SITOUT POWERBOMB! 1… 2… Layla gets the shoulder up.

    Gail Kim makes the tag to Mickie James who gets a brilliant reaction from the crowd. She comes in and clotheslines Layla before knocking Michelle McCool off the ring apron which gets another cheer from the audience in attendance. Mickie turns her attention back to Layla and Irish whips her before leaping and connecting with a Thesz Press followed by a number of punches. Mickie then goes to the top rope and leaps taking Layla out with a neat looking CROSSBODY. Mickie delivers a snapmare to Layla and repeats what McCool did to Gail Kim earlier. She nearly takes Layla’s head off with a beautiful dropkick. Mickie pins; 1…… 2…… McCool comes in and breaks up the pin. Before the referee can do anything she nails Gail Kim with a BIG BOOT as well which sends her flying off the ring apron and to the floor below.

    Layla is now in desperate need of a tag and Mickie allows herself to get frustrated by the interference from McCool. She goes over to Michelle who is getting back out of the ring but it allows Layla some time to recover as she tries to roll up the DIVA’s Champion. 1……… 2……… Mickie James kicks out but Layla quickly makes the tag to Michelle McCool who sprints in the ring and delivers another BIG BOOT which nearly takes Mickie James head off her shoulders. McCool taunts to the crowd who boo her loudly but she simply doesn’t care one iota. Michelle gets Mickie to her feet and delivers some European uppercuts in the corner before executing a perfect BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX. Michelle hooks both legs of the champion. 1…… 2…… Mickie kicks out and will not be beaten at this juncture. McCool throws Mickie over to her corner and tags in Layla to do some more damage to the DIVA’s Champion.

    The two of them Irish whip Mickie and send her face first into the canvas with a DOUBLE FLAPJACK. Layla quickly covers; 1……… 2……… Mickie James is helped by her tag team partner Gail Kim who breaks up the attempt. Michelle sprints at the potential challenger for the title but this time Gail is wise to it and holds on to the top rope and sends McCool crashing and burning to the floor on the outside. Meanwhile, back in the ring Mickie takes out Layla with a SPINNING HEEL KICK out of nowhere. The DIVA’s Champion is exhausted and crawls her way over to Gail Kim to make the tag as the crowd explodes for her. Gail runs in and takes out Layla with a couple of clotheslines before hitting a FIREMAN’S CARRY GUTBUSTER. Layla squeals in pain as Mickie leaps off the apron and takes out Michelle McCool. Back in the ring Gail Kim waits for Layla to get to her feet slowly and there it is! EAT DEFEAT! Gail Kim covers Layla; 1………… 2………… 3! Gail Kim picks up the win for her team.
    Spoiler:

    Winners: Mickie James & Gail Kim


    The crowd cheer loudly as Gail Kim secures the win for her team and has her hand raised by the official. This Sunday she could be the woman to challenge Mickie James for the DIVA’s Championship if the fans vote for her ahead of Alicia Fox and the former champion, Melina. The referee goes to hand the DIVA’s Championship to Mickie James but Gail Kim demands that she be given it instead as the fans look on with confusion. Kim holds the title and looks at the belt intently before handing it back to its current owner, Mickie James before she exits the ring and walks up the aisle after making her intentions very clear. Gail Kim wants the opportunity this Sunday against Mickie James. With that the screen fades and we go to a hype package for Cyber Sunday this weekend.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    A video montage of matches at Cyber Sunday from the past plays including a Champion vs. Champion vs. Champion Match between John Cena, King Booker and the Big Show where the WWE Universe voted for King Booker to defend the World Heavyweight Championship, Chris Jericho vs. Batista for the World Heavyweight Championship with Stone Cold Steve Austin as the Special Guest Referee and Ric Flair teaming with Rowdy Roddy Piper to take on the Spirit Squad.

    A voice-over is then heard once again:

    Mathews:
    Welcome back to SmackDown everyone and this Sunday it is going to be one heck of a show with titles on the line, stipulations to be decided and rivalries coming to their climax. On the SmackDown side of things, leader of The Empire and World Heavyweight Champion, Sheamus takes on Daniel Bryan but we don’t know what sort of match that will be yet Matt.
    Striker:
    We do not, the WWE Universe will vote and they will decide whether it will be a Submission match, Falls Count Anywhere or my personal favourite, a Tables match! But first, Bryan has a big hurdle to leap over tonight as he goes one-on-one with the leader of the Straight Edge Society, CM Punk. These two could put on one hell of a match just 48 hours before Cyber Sunday.
    Mathews:
    Oh this is going to be good, no doubt about it. And here comes CM Punk and he is not alone as he is flanked by his disciples.

    The music of CM Punk hits as he makes his way down the aisle with Luke Gallows, Mike Knox and Serena all alongside him. The crowd boo loudly but Punk ignores it and looks disappointed in them at the same time. Punk looks focused on the task at hand and steps between the ropes as he nods at his three disciples and awaits his opponent here tonight.

    The crowd now pop huge as the American Dragon and number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship, Daniel Bryan makes his way out for the main event. Bryan looks intense as he realises he is at a distinct disadvantage because of the whole Straight Edge Society being at ringside. Bryan is ready and the referee asks for the bell to be run and our main event is underway.



    SINGLES MATCH
    Daniel Bryan vs. CM Punk



    Daniel Bryan and CM Punk lock up in the middle of the ring and both are determined to get on top of each other, but it is a stalemate in the early going between the two. Punk smirks as he realises Bryan will be a tough test and Daniel looks even more intense as he knows the Straight Edge Saviour is a very real threat ahead of Cyber Sunday. Bryan and Punk lock up again but once more neither man can get the definitive advantage over the other. That is until Serena gets on the apron and distracts the referee or so she thinks but Bryan knows better than to be taken aback by her distraction. Instead he ducks under a CM Punk clothesline attempt from behind, grabs him and nails him with a beautiful SNAP GERMAN SUPLEX! The crowd cheer loudly as Bryan outsmarts Serena and the Straight Edge Society at the beginning of the match and Luke Gallows and Mike Knox look unimpressed on the outside.

    Bryan quickly gets on top of Punk on the ground and shows his technical prowess in locking in a number of different submissions. He transitions from a side headlock to a body scissors and follows that up with a modified leg lock as CM Punk is really struggling to get a foothold in the early goings of the match. Bryan rolls Punk over to his belly and steps on his knee joints before hoisting him up in a picturesque SURFBOARD. Punk screams in agony as Gallows, Knox and Serena look concerned on the outside but Bryan eventually relinquishes the hold. The number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship goes to the top rope and waits for Punk to get to his feet but this time Gallows and Knox create a distraction. So instead of jumping for Punk, Bryan twists his body and the American Dragon flies taking out both Gallows and Knox with a beautiful dive from the top. The crowd erupt again as Bryan returns to the ring after taking out the disciples.

    But while Bryan has taken out two of those at ringside helping CM Punk, he has given the Straight Edge Saviour some time to recover in the ring and it does mean the tables turn in the match. As Bryan gets back in the ring CM Punk is all over him with stomps to keep the American Dragon grounded. CM Punk just starts wailing on Bryan before getting him to his feet and slamming him to the mat with a beautiful DOUBLE UNDERHOOK BACKBREAKER. Punk quickly floats over into the cover; 1…… 2…… Bryan kicks out. CM Punk doesn’t let him get back on top though as the leader of the Straight Edge Society quickly applies a Guillotine to his opponents. Punk looks to take all the air out of the lungs of his opponent but Bryan starts to elbow his way out of the hold. He does escape but CM Punk quickly levels him with a big clothesline, another clothesline and nice jumping heel kick. Punk Irish whips Bryan into the turnbuckle and calls for his running knee as the crowd boo loudly and don’t like the direction this match is heading in.

    CM Punk sprints at Bryan and nails him with the RUNNING HIGH KNEE. Punk locks his hands around the neck of the American Dragon and goes for his patented bulldog but Bryan has it well scouted and instead pushes Punk hard, chest first into the turnbuckle. As he grabs his ribs, Bryan takes Punk down with a lethal SNAP UNDERHOOK SUPLEX as Punk’s head hits the mat hard. Bryan isn’t done there though as he floats over and locks in an ARMBAR. Punk immediately knows he is in trouble and tries to fight out of the hold, flailing his legs and trying to escape the hold. Bryan is having none of it though and starts kicking Punk in his ribs before locking in the submission hold with even more torque. CM Punk is now in real trouble as the number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship looks to be closing in on a big victory. CM Punk fights hard as Bryan tries to put more pressure on the arm and in the end the Straight Edge Saviour manages to reach the ropes.

    Bryan is relentless though and is determined to keep things going. He grabs Punk to his feet and swiftly drops him with a snap suplex. Bryan senses he needs to up the energy and goes to the top rope looking for something high risk. CM Punk slowly gets to his feet and Bryan delivers a perfect MISSILE DROPKICK. Bryan nips up and the crowd cheer loudly again for the American Dragon. CM Punk finds himself on his knees in the centre of the ring as he pleads with Bryan to stop inflicting more punishment to him ahead of Cyber Sunday. Bryan doesn’t listen at all though and starts to deliver kick after kick after kick to the midriff of Punk. Bryan waits after a few and switches feet to connect with a sickening ROUNDHOUSE KICK to the side of the head of Punk. This could be it, Bryan hooks both legs as he desperately looks for the victory. 1…… 2…… CM Punk shows great resilience to get the shoulder up. But as he does Bryan transitions into the LEBELL LOCK!

    Bryan has it in, the arm of CM Punk wrapped round and the number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship pulls back on his opponent’s head, trying to make him tap out. Suddenly, Luke Gallows and Mike Knox are in the ring and break up the submission and start hammering away at Bryan forcing the referee to call for the bell and handing Bryan the disqualification win.
    Spoiler:

    Winner: Daniel Bryan via disqualification


    Mike Knox and Luke Gallows continue to inflict punishment on Bryan with the American Dragon helpless to do anything about it at all. They hammer and stomp away at Bryan as CM Punk slowly gets back to his feet as well but here comes the Rated R Superstar. Edge sprints down the aisle and behind him is Mr Money in the Bank, John Morrison. They try and even the odds but all four members of The Empire sprint down to the ring and once again the numbers are against Daniel Bryan and his friends. Sheamus immediately goes after Daniel Bryan and is seeing this as an opportunity to do some damage before Cyber Sunday. Tyson Kidd and David Hart Smith – The Hart Dynasty are next down as the scene is now a chaotic one. They go after Finlay and Drew McIntyre as the Straight Edge Society fight Edge and John Morrison through the crowd. The Empire are left in the ring with Daniel Bryan and The Hart Dynasty and the numbers just prove too much. McIntyre takes out David Hart Smith with a huge FUTURE SHOCK DDT as Paul Burchill annihilates Tyson Kidd with the CURB STOMP. Things are now looking very bleak for Daniel Bryan as he is alone with Sheamus, Drew McIntyre, Finlay and Paul Burchill in the ring. Bryan tries to fight them all as he nails Sheamus with a big forearm but he is quickly overwhelmed. Finlay whacks the back of his knee with the Shillelagh and that does it for Bryan. World Heavyweight Champion, Sheamus, now gets his minions to pick Bryan up before he nearly takes the head off of his challenger with the BROGUE KICK as The Empire stand tall just 48 hours from Cyber Sunday.

    Mathews:
    Oh come on now. First Bryan was jumped by Luke Gallows and Mike Knox and now all of The Empire have to get involved. Daniel Bryan had no chance from the start here tonight. He was outnumbered and the damage has been done ahead of his World Heavyweight Championship match with Sheamus at Cyber Sunday. This has got to stop.
    Striker:
    Chaos reigns on Friday night SmackDown as The Empire, the greatest faction in the history of the WWE stands tall. Daniel Bryan knew what he was getting himself into and he should have thought about that before he chose to stand up to Sheamus. He is going to be swatted aside this Sunday and I for one cannot wait to see it.
    Mathews:
    Well that remains to be seen. That is it for Friday Night SmackDown tonight but make sure to join us for Cyber Sunday as Sheamus puts his World Heavyweight Championship on the line against none other than the American Dragon, Daniel Bryan!

    Re: WWE: The New Vision

    So cool to see a BTB legend back on the boards and posting a show again. Looked like a fun show.

    If this is going to continue, though, can I suggest a recap of what came before? I really want to read this, but with 500+ responses and an alternate reality where Jack Swagger is world champion and where Carlito & Chris Masters are getting a PPV match against Cena and Orton in 2010, it'd be hugely helpful for me to be able to read up on what I've missed. Obviously that's not the most exciting thing to have to do so understand if you don't, but it's going to make it really hard for me to follow along if not.

    But anyway, really pleased to see you posting again and excited about the prospect of actually being able to get involved with a project of yours!

    Re: WWE: The New Vision

    The very next post will preview every match at Cyber Sunday, what is happening in the feuds and why the matches are taking place.

    There are also links to every show in the opening post and title history so you can get a feel for it. Appreciate it is way too long for people to catch up with so maybe just look at the PPV results and the title history to get a feel

    Excited to be back

    Cyber Sunday Cyber Sunday - JR's Predictions



    Cyber Sunday – Sunday 24th October 2010 – Minneapolis, Minnesota




    Jack Swagger © vs. Triple H
    You pick the winner!
    Singles Match
    WWE CHAMPIONSHIP


    At Night of Champions last month, Jack Swagger retained his WWE Championship against Triple H in dominant fashion making the Game tap out to the Ankle Lock. It continues Swagger’s good run as the title holder since he cashed in Money in the Bank at Fatal 4 Way back in June. The All American American faces off against Triple H once again at Cyber Sunday this weekend. That’s after Triple H won the Beat the Clock Challenge the night following Night of Champions by winning faster than Chris Masters, Shelton Benjamin and Randy Orton. After Triple H’s win in the main event, Swagger nailed him with his WWE Title and then a Gutwrench Powerbomb to let it be known he would not be taking it easy on the Cerebral Assassin.

    With Vickie Guerrero by his side Swagger has been formidable. On the Monday, September 27 edition of Monday Night RAW, Co-General Manager Trish Stratus took exception to her counterpart gloating and booked Swagger in a one-on-one contest with Kofi Kingston. The spring-loaded star shocked the world by beating the WWE Champion thanks to an interruption from Triple H. The Game then delivered a Pedigree to Swagger to add an exclamation mark.

    The following week Triple H handily beat Christian in singles action but the main event saw Kofi Kingston get a WWE Championship singles opportunity for the first time ever against Jack Swagger. Kingston put up one heck of a fight but Swagger was too much and retained his title. After the bout, Triple H once again confronted the All American American but Vickie Guerrero stood in front of her client. That led to RAW Co-General Manager Trish Stratus getting involved and connecting with the Chick Kick to Vickie, to the delight of the WWE Universe.

    Jack Swagger would get the upper hand again though as the two rivals signed their contract for the match at Cyber Sunday. The WWE Champion nailed Triple H where the sun doesn’t shine with a Low Blow before driving him through the table with a Gutwrench Powerbomb. That left The Game seething this past Monday on the final RAW before the massive contest this weekend in Minneapolis. Vickie Guerrero had Triple H taken out of the building by security at the start of the show ahead of Swagger’s main event match with Randy Orton. The Game made his return as he bypassed security and we saw a momentary Evolution reunion between Triple H and Orton. It ended with Triple H delivering a Pedigree and standing tall just days before the crunch WWE Championship match.

    After Swagger’s win last month at Night of Champions it seems to have lit a new fire under The Game and I think Triple H, the King of Kings, goes back on his throne at Cyber Sunday.


    JR’s prediction: Triple H



    Sheamus © vs. Daniel Bryan
    a) Submission b) Falls Count Anywhere c) Tables
    WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP


    Sheamus made sure he remained the World Heavyweight Champion when he pinned Edge in a Fatal 4 Way match which also included CM Punk and Daniel Bryan at Night of Champions. Here’s how it went down.

    CM Punk quickly gets Daniel Bryan to his feet and looks to hit the GTS. The crowd are going nuts as Bryan is on his shoulders but Edge is back in and SPEAR! A Spear to CM Punk with Bryan on his shoulders!!! Edge covers; 1…………………………2………………………… Sheamus breaks up the pin and saves his World Heavyweight Title. Sheamus now gets Edge to his feet and lifts him up for White Noise but Edge manages to slide out of the predicament and the Rated R Superstar now runs off the ropes and hits the SPEAR!!! The Spear connects but not to Sheamus, to Daniel Bryan who was standing right behind the World Heavyweight Champion. Edge is shocked as he turns around and Sheamus damn near decapitates him with a BROGUE KICK!!! The leader of The Empire hooks the leg. 1………………………………………2…………………………………………………………3!!! Sheamus retains the title!
    Five days removed from Night of Champions and SmackDown General Manager, Theodore Long announced CM Punk would face off against Daniel Bryan in a Steel Cage match to determine the new number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship. The American Dragon would come out on top and book a Cyber Sunday match with Sheamus. On the Friday, October 1 edition of SmackDown Sheamus and Bryan signed the contract for their match. It was announced that fans would vote for the stipulation. It will be either a Submission match, Falls Count Anywhere match or a Tables match. And to emphasise the last potential stipulation, Sheamus put Bryan through a table with the High Cross to end the show.

    Ironically, the tables turned the following week on SmackDown as Sheamus was made to tap out by Bryan with the LeBell Lock in a huge eight-man Tag Team match. The Empire were defeated by Bryan, The Hart Dynasty and Cody Rhodes. On the Friday, October 15 edition of SmackDown Daniel Bryan took on Finlay in the main event. After Bryan beat the Belfast Brawler with a Running Knee. After the match The Empire tried to take out Bryan but Cody Rhodes and The Hart Dynasty made the save and cleaned house leaving Daniel Bryan standing tall ahead of his World Heavyweight Championship opportunity.

    Unfortunately things didn’t go well this past Friday on SmackDown for the American Dragon as he took on CM Punk once again following their Cage match a few weeks ago. The match ended in a disqualification as the Straight Edge Society got involved but Bryan was helped by Edge and John Morrison. The Empire would quickly come to the ring and make the numbers game impossible even with The Hart Dynasty trying to make their impact against The Empire. The scene ended with Sheamus delivering a Brogue Kick on Daniel Bryan and sending a message before their title match at Cyber Sunday.

    The Empire have just been too strong and you have to believe that may be the case again this Sunday as Sheamus puts his World Heavyweight Championship on the line. The Celtic Warrior to retain in my humble opinion.


    JR’s prediction: Sheamus



    Dolph Ziggler © vs. ???
    You pick the opponent!
    a) Evan Bourne b) Alberto Del Rio c) Rey Mysterio
    INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP


    Dolph Ziggler became Intercontinental Champion for the first time last month at Night of Champions when he defeated Gregory Helms, Evan Bourne and Rey Mysterio in a Fatal 4 Way match and at Cyber Sunday he will out the title on the line against one of them three men with the WWE Universe deciding who will get the opportunity. Five days after Night of Champions, Dolph Ziggler was forced to defend the Intercontinental Championship as Gregory Helms invoked his rematch clause. After a hard fought contest, Ziggler retained via a Superkick and a Zig Zag on the former champion. On the same show, Rey Mysterio and Evan Bourne teamed with Edge in a losing effort to The Empire.

    On the October 1 edition of SmackDown, Evan Bourne took on Gregory Helms in singles action. Dolph Ziggler was on commentary for the match as Bourne got the win with a Shooting Star Press and afterwards Ziggler stood on top of the table and held his Intercontinental Championship aloft. Rey Mysterio would be the surprise partner for The Hart Dynasty against The Empire later in the evening but suffered another loss although he was not involved in the decision. One week later Evan Bourne continued his winning run yet again as he beat Rey Mysterio in a sensational match which is a contender for the match of the month. Ziggler was on commentary again and confronted Bourne after the match who made clear he wanted a shot at the Picture of Perfection’s title. Later in the show Gregory Helms demanded another title match in a backstage interview saying he had been unfairly treated in losing the Intercontinental Championship.

    This issue really reached boiling point on the penultimate SmackDown before Cyber Sunday when Evan Bourne, Rey Mysterio and Gregory Helms met in a Triple Threat match. As Evan Bourne looked like he was about to pick up the win Dolph Ziggler appeared and pushed him off the top rope. Alberto Del Rio and Hunico also made their presence felt as they took out Rey Mysterio. It meant no challenger for Ziggler’s title emerged. Later in the night SmackDown General Manager, Theodore Long would announce that Dolph Ziggler would defend his title against either Bourne, Helms or Mysterio and the WWE Universe would decide. The final SmackDown before the pay per view saw Alberto Del Rio team up with Dolph Ziggler and face Rey Mysterio and Evan Bourne. Dolph would get some much-needed momentum going into his title defence as he pinned Bourne following a Superkick. Unfortunately just days before the event it was announced that Gregory Hems suffered a broken nose at a live event. That means Alberto Del Rio takes his place as a possible choice to take on Ziggler.

    Despite his impressive performance on Friday night I just cannot see Ziggler defending the title when he doesn’t know who his challenger will be. So whoever it ends up being I think they will be crowned the new Intercontinental Champion.


    JR’s prediction: The challenger



    Big Show vs. Kane
    You pick the match!
    a) I Quit b) Street Fight c) Inferno


    The Big Show and Kane have had issues with each other for months and it is all going to come to a head at Cyber Sunday. The two giants will meet in a match with a stipulation to be decided by the WWE Universe. It will either be an I Quit match, a Street Fight or an Inferno match! On the Monday, September 20 edition of RAW, Big Show and Kane had a one-on-one bout but it ended in complete carnage. It ended in a double countout and the two continued to brawl backstage until Trish Stratus was forced to get involved.

    We return backstage and Big Show and Kane are still fighting as Kane hits Show with a Kendo Stick but Big Show snaps it in half and tosses Kane over a table with equipment on it. Referees, officials and half the roster are on hand this time to try and separate the two monsters but they having little success. The likes of Yoshi Tatsu, Charlie Haas and Primo are all slung to one side until some of the better wrestlers on the roster get involved and manage to hold back the two giants. Trish Stratus then arrives on the scene and tells both of them top stop immediately. She announces that if the two of them want to fight so badly then they can do so at the next pay per view Cyber Sunday!! With that Show and Kane start screaming at one another while being held back and Trish in the middle of them. The camera cut back to ringside.
    Both men would continue to build momentum throughout the month in the lead up to the match. Kane would face Santino Marella on WWE Superstars and dominate the Milan Miracle before destroying him with a steel chair afterwards. On the Thursday, October 7 episode of the same show Big Show would end up losing a match to the Next Big Thing, Lance Cade via countout. The appearance of Kane distracts Show who went after the Big Red Machine but got counted out in the process. On the following RAW, Big Show cut one of his better promos outlining the torture he was going to deliver to Kane for the hell he has put him through.

    Big Show would back up his words with a hard-fought win over Christian on Superstars last week as he builds momentum towards the match with Kane in Minneapolis this weekend. Just this past week on RAW Kane would destroy Kofi Kingston and put an end to his impressive run as of late. After the match, the Big Red Machine would have so dangerous words for the Big Show. Kane looks crazed to me and will stop at nothing to take out the Giant. I cannot bet against Kane at Cyber Sunday and if I was the Big Show I would be very careful, I’ve had first-hand dealings with him and it didn’t end well for me.


    JR’s prediction: Kane



    The Empire © vs. The Hart Dynasty
    You pick the special guest referee!
    a) Theodore Long b) William Regal c) Bret Hart
    WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP


    Drew McIntyre and Finlay were crowned the new WWE Tag Team Champions at Night of Champions when they defeated The Hart Dynasty and added more gold to the group known as The Empire. The first SmackDown following the event didn’t go well for them though as General Manager, Theodore Long announced the titles would be on the line between the two teams again at Cyber Sunday. But this time there would be a special referee decided by the fans. It would be either William Regal, Bret Hart or himself! Later in the evening, The Empire would pick up a big win in a 6-Man Tag Team match against Edge, Rey Mysterio and Evan Bourne. The following week saw McIntyre, Finlay and Paul Burchill take on The Hart Dynasty and Mysterio who was revealed to be their surprise partner. Drew McIntyre would pick up the win for The Empire with the impactful Future Shock DDT on David Hart Smith.

    On the Friday, October 8 edition of SmackDown, things would turn for Tyson Kidd and Smith though. They would team up with Daniel Bryan to take on Drew McIntyre and Finlay as well as World Heavyweight Champion, Sheamus. The American Dragon would make Sheamus tap out with The Hart Dynasty getting a measure of revenge on Finlay and McIntyre. A week afterwards Bryan would take on Finlay in the main event and all hell would break loose at the culmination of the match. The Hart Dynasty and Cody Rhodes would come to the aid of Bryan and fend off The Empire to stand tall at the end of the show as the crowd went wild. It was quite a scene as Kidd and Smith made themselves known. This past week wasn’t so good for The Hart Dynasty though. Finlay picked up a win over Tyson Kidd on Superstars while McIntyre beat Smith on SmackDown. And William Regal and Bret Hart were both in attendance for the latter match.

    This match is a very difficult one to call without knowing who the special guest referee will be but I’m going to go with The Empire because whoever it is they will have the x-factor of Paul Burchill on the outside ready and waiting to play any part he can in defending the titles.


    JR’s prediction: The Empire



    Mickie James © vs. ?????
    You pick the opponent!
    a) Alicia Fox b) Gail Kim c) Melina
    DIVA’S CHAMPIONSHIP


    At Night of Champions, Mickie James became the DIVA’s Champion for the seventh time when she defeated Alicia Fox and the previous title holder Melina in a Triple Threat match. 24 hours later on RAW Mickie was being interviewed about her historic win but she didn’t get the chance to say much before she was attacked by Melina. A few days later on Superstars, Gail Kim picked up an impressive win over Michelle McCool. On the September 27 edition of RAW Melina would pick up a victory over Eve Torres. The Paparazzi Princess would try to beat down Torres afterwards but Alicia Fox took out the former DIVA’s Champion and made the save. On SmackDown the same week Gail Kim confronts Mickie James backstage and challenges her to a non-title match the following week as the two promise to stay friends even if they do battle over the DIVA’s Championship.

    The situation would really intensify on October 4 on Monday Night RAW as Melina took on Alicia Fox. Mickie James would stop Melina from winning and viciously attack her getting revenge for the backstage assault a couple of weeks prior. Mickie would spike Melina with her Mickie-DT and make a statement posing with her DIVA’s Championship. Later in the show Vickie Guerrero announced Mickie James would put her title on the line at Cyber Sunday against either Melina, Alicia Fox or Gail Kim with the fans deciding the challenger. The same week on SmackDown Mickie took on Gail as promised and an Eat Defeat from Kim gave her the biggest win of her career in quite some time and left her emotional afterwards. The crowd gave her a huge response for her efforts as well.

    It all came full circle on October 11 on RAW when Mickie James took on Alicia Fox and got a big win over one of her potential challengers. But after the bout Melina made her presence felt once again and delivered the Sunset Split to the DIVA’s Champion and screamed that she would be the title holder again. Later in the night Melina warned she would make an impact at Cyber Sunday whether she was voted in as the challenger or not. Gail Kim continued her momentum on the penultimate SmackDown before the pay per view as she teamed with Natalya to beat LayCool. This past week on RAW there were a lot of combustible elements put together as Melina and Alicia Fox were forced to team together to take on Mickie James and Eve Torres. It ended with Fox getting pinned by Mickie as the DIVA’s Champion quickly escaped after the bout to avoid any attacks. Similar to RAW, Mickie teamed with Gail Kim as she connected with Eat Defeat to beat LayCool in a Tag Team match. And afterwards she took out Mickie James as well.

    It has been quite a month between all four of these women with nobody really getting on top but once again I’m backing a title change as Mickie James will not know who her opponent will be until the night. Gail Kim would be the feelgood story and as the fan favourite she could well be voted as the contender.


    JR’s prediction: The challenger



    Carlito & Chris Masters vs. John Cena & Randy Orton
    Tag Team Match


    This Tag Team affair should be very interesting with long-time rivals John Cena and Randy Orton teaming up to try and take out Carlito and Chris Masters who have been at them all month long. It started the night after Night of Champions when John Cena took on Chris Masters in a Beat the Clock Challenge match. The Masterpiece picked up a huge win with a roll up after grabbing the trunks and a distraction from Carlito. Later in the evening the Caribbean superstar took on Randy Orton in another Beat the Clock Challenge match. He didn’t have as much luck though as Masters tried to interfere to help him and John Cena came down to the ring and made sure he couldn’t distract Randy. One RKO later and The Viper got the one, two, three over Carlito.

    RAW Co-General Managers Vickie Guerrero and Trish Stratus booked a Tag Team match between the four men for the September 27 edition of the show. The well-oiled team of Masters and Carlito got the win as the latter rolled up Orton after he had collided with Cena. The two confronted one another in the ring afterwards and shouted abuse at each other before Cena chose to be the bigger man and leave the ring. The following week John Cena kicked off RAW by coming to the ring and saying he has had a week to think about what happened. And he came to the conclusion that to beat Carlito and Masters he needed Orton on his side and they needed to put their history behind them. The arrogant duo didn’t take kindly to what the Chain Gang Soldier had to say though and attacked the multiple-time WWE Champion. The fallout saw an interesting moment featuring Randy Orton.

    Randy Orton sprints down the entrance ramp to a raucous ovation from the Kansas crowd as he enters the ring but before he can do any damage Carlito and Chris Masters quickly bail out of the squared circle. Orton demands they come back and is in a fit of rage looking about ready to destroy anyone who crosses his path. Randy, like The Viper he is, sees that Carlito and Masters have retreated through the crowd and turns his attention to the groggy and downed Cena in the centre of the ring. The WWE Universe aren’t sure what to expect here as Orton has an angry look in his eyes. Suddenly the Apex Predator pulls Cena’s arm to get him to his feet but chooses to do nothing else as he leaves the ring and walks up the ramp himself. Cena looks a little confused in the middle of the ring as he holds onto his head which took a lot of punishment after being put in the Master Lock earlier. The camera then switches to rest on Cole and King who speculate as to what they just saw.
    The following week there was a test as John Cena and Randy Orton teamed up with Kofi Kingston to take on Chris Masters, Carlito and Chris Jericho. It was a good night for the future Hall of Famers as they worked well as a team and Kofi Kingston picked up the win with the Trouble in Paradise on Carlito. This past week we saw some singles action as Chris Masters took on John Cena on RAW. He did the unthinkable and made Cena pass out to pick up a huge victory just days ahead of the Cyber Sunday match between the two teams. Randy Orton would take on Masters on Superstars and thanks to John Cena he picked up a big victory over the Masterpiece with an RKO. There is still tension between Cena and Orton after the match and much will depend on whether they can team up well this weekend. For my money I think they will do enough and get some revenge on Carlito and Chris Masters.


    JR’s prediction: John Cena & Randy Orton

    Just a reminder to get your votes in using the above template in the next 24 hours. Pretty much every category is close bar one so it could make all the difference. You can read the JR's predictions above to get a feel for what is going on in the feuds as well.

    Cyber Sunday WWE Cyber Sunday 2010


    Cyber Sunday – Sunday 24th October 2010
    Target Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota




    The song ‘Thrill’ by Nero plays behind a video package to hype Cyber Sunday as the main matches are run down and a voice over the top hypes the show. The night is billed as the most interactive night of the year where opponents, stipulations and more will be chosen by the fans. We get a recap of what has been happening in the World Heavyweight Championship feud between Sheamus and Daniel Bryan as well as Jack Swagger and Triple H who will compete for the WWE Championship here tonight. The final image of the video package is someone sitting at a desk and pressing rhe return key on keyboard clearly casting their votes for the event.

    And now RAW and SmackDown present the most interactive night of the year, CYBER SUNDAY!!!

    The screen explodes as red and white fireworks come from every direction. The arena looks a picture with the crowd going crazy and the titantron setup looking exactly like a computer with a keyboard on the entrance ramp and the screen being the monitor. Fireworks go on for about 10 seconds as the camera pans all over the screaming fans before we land on Michael Cole and Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler at ringside.

    Cole:
    Ladies and gentlemen we welcome you to Cyber Sunday! We are live from a sold out Target Center in Minneapolis and it is going to be a night to remember as the WWE fans across the globe have their say. They will decide stipulations, bonus matches, opponents and more in what is sure to be a night we will never forget King.
    King:
    Cyber Sunday is one of my favourite nights of the year and I cannot wait to see how the WWE Universe shake things up Cole. We could see fire at ringside, surprise challengers for titles and brutal match stipulations and I am ready to enjoy every minute of it! We are kicking off with quite some match as well!
    Cole:
    We are indeed as two giants will collide and this heated rivalry between the Big Show and Kane will finally end here this evening. But first let’s check in with our SmackDown colleagues Josh Mathews and Matt Striker. Good evening gentlemen. Are you ready for the most interactive night of the year?

    Mathews:
    Hello everyone and thank you Cole. We have quite a night of SmackDown action here at Cyber Sunday as The Empire look to hold onto all of their gold. Sheamus will defend his World Heavyweight Championship against Daniel Bryan but the WWE fans will decide the match stipulation. The title will be on the line in either a Submission match, Falls Count Anywhere or a Tables match!
    Striker:
    That is going to be incredible but frankly these people don’t deserve a chance to pick stipulations and alter the future here in WWE. I don’t understand why on earth they have been given the power. But they have and The Empire will also defend the WWE Tag Team Championship with a special guest referee decided by them. It could be Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart, William Regal or our General Manager, Theodore Long.
    Mathews:
    Oh Matt, these fans pay their hard-earned money every week to come and see their favourite WWE Superstars and tonight they really get to change the shape of SmackDown and RAW. And we are almost ready for our first match of the evening but first off we need the results of the voting so let’s send it backstage to out host, none other than Todd Grisham.

    Cyber Sunday host – Todd Grisham:
    Thank you Josh and we are kicking it off with a clash of giants as the World’s Largest Athlete, the Big Show takes on the Big Red Machine, Kane. We don’t know the match stipulation and the WWE Universe have been voting all week. It will either be an I Quit match, a Street Fight or an Inferno match. We have had thousands of votes all week but it is time to find out the result!

    ----------------------DRUM ROLL--------------------


    Big Show vs. Kane
    Spoiler:

    VOTING RESULTS:
    I Quit match – 29%
    Street Fight – 14%
    Inferno match – 57%


    It’s an Inferno match!!! The camera cuts back to ringside where fire explodes from the stage and Kane bursts through the curtain with a sick smile on his face clearly delighted with the match stipulation which has been voted for by the WWE Universe. The Big Red Machine gets in the ring which is surrounded by metal apparatus which will be lit when Kane’s opponent has made his way to the ring and the match gets underway. Kane enters the ring and gets a lot of heat from the crowd who are clearly against him winning this match even if it is one he is famed for competing in. In fact, the last time we saw an Inferno match was when Kane beat MVP back at Armageddon 2006.

    The crowd explodes as the Big Show makes his way down the entrance ramp to take part in this massive clash of monsters. The World’s Largest Athlete doesn’t look worried about fighting in an Inferno match as he steps in between the ropes and stares intensely at Kane. The referee gives the signal and the fire erupts all around the ringside area as the temperature goes up in the arena and the crowd gasp. The referee calls for the bell and Cyber Sunday kicks off with an Inferno match!


    The match starts fast with Big Show going straight after Kane grateful he can get his hands on the Big Red Machine and there is absolutely nowhere for him to go. As such Kane works out his best form of defence is to attack. The two throw heavy right hands at one another before Big Show takes his opponent down with a massive clothesline. As Kane lands on the canvas the flames shoot up surrounding the ring which gets another pop from the sold-out Cyber Sunday crowd in Minneapolis. Show gets Kane to his feet and Irish whips him into the corner before running across the ring and splashing him in the corner which makes quite the impact. Kane crumples to his knees but Show is having none of it and lifts him back to his feet before signalling for the crowd to quieten down. Big Show lifts his hand and slams it hard across the chest of Kane which echoes emphatically throughout the arena. He isn’t done there though as the World’s Largest Athlete does this three times to the delight of those watching all around the world.

    Show is in the ascendancy and Kane hasn’t got out of the blocks at all at the start of this match. Show dominates in the early going and he picks up Kane as he delivers a nice SIDEWALK SLAM and the World’s Largest Athlete hooks the leg but then he is reminded this is an Inferno match because apparently the flames all around ringside enough aren’t enough for him to realise. Show gets to his feet and sees the funny side of it before he centres his attention back on the Big Red Machine. The Giant gets Kane over his shoulder in a Running Powerslam position and looks to dump Kane in the fire! It is almost like the Big Red Machine has a sixth sense and he squirms off the shoulders of Show in a desperate attempt to avoid being set on fire! Kane stands directly behind Show and as the Giant turns around, the monster goes low with a DROPKICK to the knee. Show goes down to one knee and Kane takes him fully down with a powerful DDT. Kane has suddenly got himself back into this contest.

    Kane knows he will have to work hard to keep Big Show grounded and stomps away on him repeatedly before mounting his opponent and connecting with brutal punches to the side of Show’s head despite the Giant trying his best to cover up. It is almost as if a switch has gone off in Kane’s head and he is determined to make his momentum pay over his rival of several months. Kane uses the ropes to gather some speed before dropping his legs across the throat of Show and signalling this is it. The Big Red Machine looks to go to the top rope but he can’t do it like he would usually because of the flames around the ring. Instead he has to climb to the top and awkwardly turns around as Show slowly gets to his feet. Kane jumps and looks for his LEAPING CLOTHESLINE but Show has it well scouted and sidesteps. As Kane turns around he is met with a monumental SPEAR from the Giant who nearly takes him out of his boots! The crowd cheer loudly at the amazing move they have just witnessed.

    It takes a while for both men to get back to their feet after the impact of that manoeuvre and it also gives them the opportunity to take a breather in the hot environment. Show is first to his feet and hammers away at Kane before he once again drops him with the FINAL CUT as the flames shoot up when Kane’s back hits the canvas. Show is serious about ending the match now and drags Kane by his arm towards the searing heat of the flames. Kane once again tries to fight back and resists Show as much as he can. The World’s Largest Athlete hoists Kane to his feet and just damn right tosses him near halfway across the ring in an unbelievable display of power. The WWE Universe gasps as Big Show raises his hand in the air and signals for the CHOKESLAM! Kane slowly and groggily gets back to his feet. He turns around as Show grabs him by the throat but at the highest point, Kane locks his hands around Show’s neck and delivers another huge DDT to the Giant who rolls perilously near the flames.

    Kane sees it and thinks this is his chance to set his opponent on fire as a look of glee goes across his face at the thought of doing the ultimate harm to the man he despises. Kane uses the ropes for momentum and delivers another very low DROPKICK. Show moves closer to the flames and is now just two feet away. The Big Red Machine goes for the same technique again but when he comes back off the ropes Big Show has got back to his feet with incredible speed and grabs Kane by the throat. This time the CHOKESLAM connects as flames shoot in the air and the crowd cheer loudly as the World’s Largest Athlete takes control. Show is exhausted after taking punishment from Kane but tries to get his breath back and gain his second wind. Kane is slowly getting back to his feet as Show cocks his hand and gets ready to deliver the WMD – THE KNOCKOUT PUNCH to his nemesis.

    Kane turns around as Show wildly throws his right hand but the Big Red Machine ducks underneath and then floors the Giant with a LOW BLOW! The crowd boo loudly and disapprove of Kane’s action as the Devil’s Favourite Demon laughs maniacally at his handy work. The referee looks at him and tries to admonish the Monster but it is all legal in an Inferno match. Kane laughs more and more before he goes to the top rope again and it looks like he is going for his big LEAPING CLOTHESLINE once again. Kane leaps high in the air and CRASH! Big Show absolutely nails Kane with the WMD KNOCKOUT PUNCH! Kane crumples in a heap on the ground as the WWE Universe go nuts at the unbelievable move which came out of nowhere. Kane is motionless on the canvas as Show drags his body slowly towards the flame and sets his gloved hand on fire as Kane writhes around and the match is over! Officials and medical staff rush to the ring as the flames go out on the side of the ring Kane is and they extinguish the flame which is now threatening to go up his arm and cause some serious harm.
    Spoiler:

    Winner: Big Show by setting Kane on fire after delivering the WMD knockout punch (8:43)


    Cole:
    Oh my god! Kane has been set on fire after that brutal WMD Knockout Punch from the Big Show and the Giant wins a brutal encounter here tonight to kick off Cyber Sunday. Kane spoke a big game heading into this match but the Monster has been put in his place by the World’s Largest Athlete. And thank goodness medical staff and officials have managed to extinguish the flame. Can you smell that King?
    King:
    That is human flesh burning Cole and these people are cheering it. Whatever anyone has done they don’t believe to be burned alive. Big Show has beaten his arch-rival and that was uncomfortable to watch as both men at several points came close to being set on fire. But Kane is the monster who has been set on fire by the Giant and something tells me we won’t be seeing him for a while after this.
    Cole:
    Big Show is victorious tonight and he has finally put an end to Kane’s games, interference and crazed ways. The Giant wins the Inferno match voted for by the WWE Universe here tonight in a stunning start to the show here at the Target Center in Minneapolis.

    The flames are now put out all around the ring as Kane is helped out of the arena by medical personnel and Big Show stands tall in the ring with his music playing and the crowd cheering loudly. That was without doubt the best Inferno match the WWE has ever put on and the fans seem as surprised as anyone else. Big Show wins the opener as we head backstage.



    The camera is on none other than the WWE Champion, Jack Swagger as he walks with purpose and reaches a door which says RAW Co-General Manager, Vickie Guerrero on it. Swagger knocks and Vickie summons him in as the All American American looks very confident ahead of his WWE Championship match with Triple H later tonight. Swagger and Vickie openly talk about what Swagger is going to do to Triple H with Guerrero saying tonight will be the end of an old era and a continuation of a new one with Swagger at the top of Monday Night RAW and the WWE as a whole. The WWE Champion is fired up at the end of the segment as he looks at Vickie smirking and the Co-GM gives an arrogant grin back clearly not at all concerned about tonight’s Cyber Sunday main event. The camera fades to the SmackDown announce team at ringside.



    Mathews:
    The WWE Champion is confident ahead of his title defence later tonight against Triple H and when Vickie Guerrero is involved you have to believe there is some sort of plan in place. And what a start to the show with an incredible Inferno match. But now it is time for SmackDown to take centre stage as the WWE Tag Team Championship is about to be on the line Matt. But who will be the special guest referee?
    Striker:
    It has been quite a start to the evening and something tells me this night will go down in history when it is all said and done. This next match could be quite the debacle if the voting goes a certain way. The Empire could be really up against it if SmackDown General Manager, Theodore Long or Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart are selected by the WWE Universe. I personally hope it is William Regal, a true great in this industry.
    Mathews:
    Not bias at all Matt are you?! I cannot wait to see who the special guest referee for this title match is going to be. It could be time for The Hart Dynasty to get some revenge on The Empire after losing their WWE Tag Team Titles last month at Night of Champions. And here come the challengers! Listen to this ovation for Tyson Kidd, David Hart Smith and Natalya.

    The Hart Dynasty come through the curtain in pink, grey and white attire on this occasion looking focused and ready to reclaim their WWE Tag Team Championships. Natalya stands in the middle of Kidd and Smith as the three raise their arms before energetically bounding their way to the ring. They get a nice ovation after their good run with the titles which came to a screeching halt at last month’s Night of Champions pay per view.

    The mood changes when The Empire’s music comes through the PA system and out stride Drew McIntyre, Finlay and Paul Burchill. Sheamus is not with them as he will be defending his World Heavyweight Championship later on in the night against Daniel Bryan. Finlay, McIntyre and Burchill walk slowly and methodically to the ring with the latter not competing in the match but out at ringside to support his team nonetheless. The match will happen next but first we go backstage to the host Todd Grisham.


    Cyber Sunday host – Todd Grisham:
    It is time to find out who has been voted the special guest referee for this WWE Tag Team Championship match at Cyber Sunday. Will it be Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart? Or what about William Regal perhaps? Or have the WWE Universe voted for SmackDown General Manager, Theodore Long? You can see all three of them awaiting the results with referee shirts on ready to take charge so without further ado who is it?!

    ----------------------DRUM ROLL--------------------


    The Hart Dynasty vs. The Empire ©
    Spoiler:

    VOTING RESULTS:
    Theodore Long – 14%
    William Regal – 7%
    Bret Hart – 79%


    It is Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart!!! The guitar riff hits which can only mean one thing. Here comes the WWE legend as the crowd absolutely explode for the Hart family member. The Hart Dynasty look ecstatic with the outcome as The Empire look crushed by the result. William Regal and Theodore Long also look dejected backstage but there is no stopping this pop from the crowd in attendance as they cannot believe they are about to see Bret Hart. The Hitman taunts in the ring before holding the WWE Tag Team Championships in the air to signal they are on the line. He then asks the timekeeper to ring the bell and this match is underway!


    Tyson Kidd and Finlay are the two men to start with the titles on the line and the last graduate of the Hart family dungeon shows Finlay exactly how good he is with multiple takedowns and quick submissions in the early going. Finlay becomes frustrated and is known for his brawling style more for his amateur abilities. Kidd ties him in knots repeatedly before he makes the crucial error of giving Finlay an inch who delivers a CHOP BLOCK to the back of the knee of Kidd. Tyson immediately starts hopping around and Finlay makes it his mission to take out his left knee and, in the process, stop Kidd from using any of his high-octane offence. Finlay tags in Drew McIntyre who grabs Kidd and launches him with an unbelievable BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX. He didn’t realise his own strength though and he has thrown him straight to David Hart Smith who tags his smaller partner and strides towards McIntyre in the middle of the squared circle.

    The crowd noise grows louder and louder as we are about to see a collision between the two big men in the match with Bret Hart in the corner smiling and looking excited about what he is going to witness as well. McIntyre and Smith throw big right hands at one another but neither of them move one bit as every McIntyre punch is booed and every Smith punch is cheered. Neither man is giving an inch here as they start chopping as well as punching but it is The Empire who gain the advantage as McIntyre suddenly connects with the GLASGOW KISS HEADBUTT! Smith falls to the canvas like a tonne of bricks and Drew hooks the leg. Bret Hart gets in position; 1…… 2…… David Hart Smith kicks out. McIntyre smirks at Bret Hart and doesn’t give him any abuse for the count but he is clearly enjoying The Empire being in control right in front of the Hitman. McIntyre stomps away at Smith before slowing the pace down and locking in a body scissors on The Hart Dynasty member trying to drive all the air out of his opponent with his legs.

    McIntyre grounds Smith impressively but the crowd are quick to will on The Hart Dynasty member and want him to escape the submission hold which he does in time but the member of The Empire is having none of it and drops Smith to the canvas almost immediately with NECKBREAKER ONTO THE KNEE. The Sinister Scotsman covers Smith as Bret Hart is quick in position to count again; 1…… 2…… No! The Hart Dynasty are still alive in this match. The crowd are determined to get behind Smith and it starts to impact on McIntyre who gets frustrated and tags Finlay in to do more damage to the bigger man of the challengers. The Belfast Brawler goes for a short-arm clothesline but Smith ducks underneath and as Finlay comes back towards him off the ropes he nails one half of the WWE Tag Team Champions with a BIG BOOT! Finlay falls to the canvas as Smith drapes his arm over the top of him and pins; 1…… 2…… This time it is Finlay who kicks out much to the annoyance of Bret Hart which is clear to see all over his face.

    Smith realises he has taken a lot of punishment and makes the tag to a much fresher Tyson Kidd who comes in with a remarkable amount of energy. Kidd comes in with a SPRINGBOARD CLOTHESLINE before delivering a beautiful DROPKICK which knocks Drew McIntyre off the ring apron and to the floor below. Tyson continues to gather momentum with a couple of clotheslines to Finlay and a beautiful SPINNING HEEL KICK. McIntyre tries to get back in the ring but the special referee Bret Hart does a great job in keeping him outside as Tyson Kidd connects with an almighty BRAINBUSTER to Finlay. Kidd hooks both legs and we could have new WWE Tag Team Champions here. 1………… 2………… McIntyre breaks up the pin attempt as all hell breaks loose. David Hart Smith comes back in and clotheslines Drew outside the ring. Smith follows him to the outside and Irish whips him hard off the steel steps! Paul Burchill is not amused on the outside so Smith nails him with a BIG BOOT! The Hart Dynasty are closing in here as the crowd go wild.

    Back in the ring, Tyson Kidd goes to the top rope and waits for Finlay to get to his feet. Kidd leaps and there it is! The BLOCKBUSTER. Kidd pins and thinks he has done it; 1………… 2………… Finlay gets his foot on the rope and saves the WWE Tag Team Titles for The Empire. Bret Hart points it out to Kidd who reluctantly accepts that The Hitman has once again made the correct call in the contest. Tyson quickly tags his partner and Smith drives Finlay into the mat with a big suplex which Kidd follows up with a SPRINGBOARD LEG DROP. Smith covers the Belfast Brawler but again he gets the shoulder up as this match continues. Finlay is really struggling for the champions as Smith senses The Hart Dynasty could be closing in on their second reign as WWE Tag Team Champions. Smith gets Finlay on his shoulder and looks for the RUNNING POWERSLAM but Burchill is back up on the apron and pulls Finlay off his shoulders and to the outside where he tries to help The Empire regroup. Little does he know he has just set up Tyson Kidd to run and deliver a SOMERSAULT PLANCHA as he leaps over the top rope and takes out both Burchill and Finlay as Natalya and special guest referee Bret Hart cheer on The Hart Dynasty.

    McIntyre avoids the impact though and grabs Tyson Kidd, launching him into the ring post as Kidd goes absolutely flying with his head hitting the steel hard. The crowd boo loudly as David Hart Smith goes to the outside and confronts McIntyre. The two start exchanging heavy blows but Finlay is now back up and it quickly becomes a two-on-one assault on the larger man of The Hart Dynasty. The Sinister Scotsman orders Finlay to return Smith to the ring and he does before making the tag to Drew who comes in and immediately takes his opponent down with a shoulder block before following it up with a huge FIREMAN’S CARRY GUTBUSTER! McIntyre thinks this one is over as Bret Hart reluctantly makes the pin count; 1………… 2………… Smith kicks out and won’t be beaten with the WWE Tag Team Championship on the line. Some semblance of normality has been restored to the match now with Kidd back up on the apron albeit clutching his head and Finlay in the same position on the opposite side of the ring. Smith and McIntyre are the legal men with Burchill and Natalya on the outside supporting their respective teams.

    McIntyre is in control of Smith as The Empire fully intend to retain their titles. The Sinister Scotsman Irish whips him into the turnbuckle and sprints towards him but Smith sidesteps and Drew hits the ring post hard with his should. Smith quickly rolls up McIntyre. Could we have new champions here? 1………… 2………… McIntyre kicks out and this match continues! Smith can’t believe it as he thought he had the match won there but it wasn’t to be. Smith picks McIntyre up to his feet and hoists him in the air and shows some unbelievable strength for a DELAYED VERTICAL SUPLEX. Smith thinks he could be on the verge of sealing the win for his team and tags Tyson Kidd in as they look to go for THE HART ATTACK. It connects! We are going to have new WWE Tag Team Champions right here; 1…………… 2…………… Finlay breaks up the pin attempt and definitely saves the match and the titles for The Empire.

    All hell now breaks loose as Bret Hart confronts Finlay and tells him to get out of the ring. Finlay does that and is seen telling Paul Burchill to do something who quickly goes over to the timekeeper’s area. Tyson Kidd and David Hart Smith are in the ring as they call for THE HART ATTACK again! But as it looks like they are going to connect with the devastating finisher on McIntyre again, Burchill gets on the ring apron with one of the WWE Tag Team Championship belts in hand. Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart tells him to get down but Burchill is having none of it. Meanwhile, in the background Finlay has the other WWE Tag Title belt and nails Tyson Kidd square in the forehead with the gold! The Belfast Brawler scurries away as David Hart Smith gives chase but Finlay pulls the top rope down and The Hart Dynasty member crashes and burns. Bret Hart has had enough of Burchill and punches The Ripper off the apron as the crowd cheer but behind him Drew McIntyre hooks the leg of Tyson Kidd. Bret Hart turns around and clearly knows something has gone down but can do nothing but count the pinfall; 1…………… 2…………… 3! The Empire retain the WWE Tag Team Championship in controversial circumstances.
    Spoiler:

    Winners: The Empire via pinfall after Finlay hit Tyson Kidd with a title belt to RETAIN the WWE Tag Team Championship (13:42)


    Mathews:
    No, not this way damn it! The Empire have retained the WWE Tag Team Championships despite Bret Hart being voted in as the special guest referee. And once again the difference maker was Paul Burchill who was lurking at ringside. Finlay nailed Tyson Kidd with that title belt and Drew McIntyre scores the pinfall. The Empire keep winning by any means necessary and something needs to be done about this. It just isn’t right.
    Striker:
    Oh please Josh. Wah, wah, wah. The Empire will conquer all at all costs. That is their slogan and tonight they have lived up to it with a dominant win over The Hart Dynasty despite all the odds being stacked against them. For my money, Drew McIntyre and Finlay may become the best WWE Tag Team Champions we have had in years. What a thoroughly enjoyable match that was. The Hart Dynasty just couldn’t get the job done.
    Mathews:
    Oh please Matt will you give it a rest?! There was nothing right about how that match ended and Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart had no idea what had happened. He will be absolutely mortified once he sees the replays of that. And it looks like that is what is going on right now as you see him looking distraught at not being able to help The Hart Dynasty regain the WWE Tag Team Championships.

    Natalya is in the ring watching the replay with Bret Hart as David Hart Smith returns to the ring and tries to tend to Tyson Kidd as well. The Hitman cannot believe what has happened and apologises profusely to Kidd and Smith as Natalya looks forlorn at what happened. At the top of the ramp Drew McIntyre, Finlay and Paul Burchill are very happy with what they have accomplished as they remain the WWE Tag Team Champions. The crowd give them some serious heat for the way they won the match but it soon turns to pleasant applause and cheering as Natalya raises Bret Hart’s arm in the ring despite what just happened. The screen fades to the backstage area where we go to the interview area as Cyber Sunday rolls on.



    Backstage Interviewer – Byron Saxton:
    Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time, he is the number one contender for the WWE Championship and will take on Jack Swagger tonight, he is The Game, TRIPLE H!

    The crowd cheer loudly as Triple H comes into shot and Byron continues with his line of questioning.

    Backstage Interviewer – Byron Saxton:
    Triple H, tonight you take on Jack Swagger and have the opportunity to once again become the WWE Champion. But earlier this evening we saw the All American American talking to RAW Co-General Manager, Vickie Guerrero. They are looking extremely confident. Your thoughts?

    The Game – Triple H:
    Byron, tonight will not be like Night of Champions. Jack Swagger was the better man but since then a lot has happened. Vickie Guerrero better not get in the way because if she does, I will have no hesitation in Pedigreeing her ass in the middle of that ring. Nothing and I mean NOTHING will stop me tonight as the King of Kings goes back on his throne and I become the WWE Champion because nothing else matters to me.

    Triple H looks intensely at Byron with his response as the other RAW Co-General Manager, Trish Stratus comes into shot and begins to address Triple H.

    RAW Co-General Manager – Trish Stratus:
    Don’t worry about Vickie Guerrero. If she gets in the way in the WWE Championship match she will wish she had never been born. Good luck out there.

    With that we head back to ringside and to RAW announce team Michael Cole and King.



    Cole:
    Triple H is confident tonight and that was an interesting message from Trish Stratus who has promised to stop Vickie Guerrero helping out Jack Swagger tonight. Something tells me it is going to be quite a main event here tonight at Cyber Sunday and it has already started that way. The Big Show beat Kane in an Inferno Match and The Empire have retained the WWE Tag Team Championship against The Hart Dynasty.
    King:
    And we are just getting started Cole. I can’t wait for that WWE Championship contest later between Jack Swagger and Triple H but up next we have another title on the line in the DIVA’s Championship. Mickie James defends the gold but she doesn’t know her opponent yet and has it all to do if she wants to walk out of here still as the champion because three beautiful women are ready to challenge her.
    Cole:
    This is going to be a tall order for Mickie James no doubt about it, but we have seen her overcome all sorts of obstacles throughout her career. She is not a seven-time DIVA’s Champion for nothing. And here she comes! Listen to this ovation from the sold out WWE Universe here at the Target Center.

    The crowd go crazy for Mickie James as she bursts through the curtain and she easily gets the biggest pop of the night so far. The Minneapolis fans love Mickie as she enters the ring and taunts with the DIVA’s Championship belt. The crowd eventually settle down as Mickie James stands in the ring and wants to find out who her opponent will be tonight at Cyber Sunday.

    Cyber Sunday host – Todd Grisham:
    It is time to find out who Mickie James will be defending the DIVA’s Championship against right here tonight in Minneapolis. Will it be Alicia Fox, will it be Gail Kim or will it be none other than the former champion Melina? The votes are in and the DIVA facing Mickie James will be…

    ----------------------DRUM ROLL--------------------

    Spoiler:

    [color=darkgrey]VOTING RESULTS:[/color]
    Alicia Fox – 7%
    Gail Kim – 57%
    Melina – 36%


    It is Gail Kim! The fans have voted for a dream match here tonight at Cyber Sunday. But before Gail can make her way to the ring she is attacked by Melina in the corridor backstage where the three were waiting to find out who was facing Mickie James. It doesn’t work though as Gail Kim manages to turn the tables and throws Melina into a wall and lays her out. The crowd cheer as Gail strides to the entrance area, her music plays and she makes her way down the ramp. Mickie smiles at the prospect of facing her good friend as Gail Kim gets in the ring and smiles as well. Make no mistake about it though this match will be extremely hard-hitting as we’re about to find out. The second championship match of the evening is on!


    Mickie James and Gail Kim shake hands before they go straight into it with the DIVA’s Championship on the line. Mickie and Gail do some nice chain wrestling to start the match which impresses the crowd who cheer loudly when both women are back to their feet and giving one another a nod of the head to signal this is going to be a closely fought contest. Mickie knows she will have to be at her best if she is to retain her title at Cyber Sunday and she ups the intensity by kicking Gail in the gut and delivering a Snapmare to her opponent. The DIVA’s Champion uses the ropes for extra momentum and connects with a dropkick to the side of the head of Kim. Gail is down but kicks out on just one as she makes it clear she will not be beaten without taking a lot of punishment here tonight. Mickie is okay with that and gets Gail to her feet before Irish whipping her into the turnbuckle. She sprints towards Gail but Kim leaps over her and rolls up the champion. 1… 2… Mickie just avoids a shock early defeat.

    Mickie James and Gail Kim are both back to their feet and for the first time the champion looks concerned as the challenger grins but in a modest way. The contest heats up as Mickie charges at Gail and the two start throwing big forearms at one another. Mickie Irish whips Gail but Kim ducks a clothesline attempt and on the rebound takes down James with a SPEAR! The crowd cheer loudly at the impact of the move as Gail has taken full control in this bout. Mickie slowly gets to her feet with her title reign in severe jeopardy at Cyber Sunday. What she hasn’t seen is that Gail has climbed to the top rope and leaps connecting with a beautiful MISSILE DROPKICK which sends Mickie James all the way to the outside of the ring. Mickie is standing and using the announce table for support as Gail sees that and runs full speed ahead and leaps through the ropes with a SUICIDE DIVE!. Mickie goes flying as Kim taunts and gets a nice pop from the Minneapolis crowd.

    Gail quickly returns Mickie to the ring as she realises this is her moment to capitalise on the hurting DIVA’s Champion. The Empress lifts Mickie up and drops her again with a nice WHEELBARROW BULLDOG. Gail has been so impressive here; 1……. 2…… Mickie James just gets the shoulder up and keeps her chances of retaining the title alive. Gail gives Mickie no time to recover though as she quickly grabs her leg and twists them into to an INVERTED SHARPSHOOTER. Mickie James screams in pain as Gail Kim can be heard telling her to tap out as she is desperate to become the DIVA’s Champion. Kim puts more and more torque on the legs of Mickie which in turn hurts her back but somehow the WWE legend twists her body and manages to kick Kim three times to get her to release the hold. Gail is quickly back to Mickie but she is rolled up; 1…… 2…… This time it is Kim who kicks out and as the two women get back to their feet out of desperation James hits the MICK KICK!!! That could be it but Gail Kim falls out of the ring and to the floor given the force of the blow.

    Mickie cannot believe it and looks exasperated that Kim has fallen out of the ring. She takes some time to get her breath back and goes after Kim on the outside as she looks to wrestle momentum back in her favour. James has been up against it for the majority of the match so far but the WWE Universe sense that things could be about to change. Mickie lifts Gail to her feet on the outside and drops her chest first on the barricade. Mickie throws Gail back into the ring before climbing to the top rope and leaping with a MISSILE DROPKICK to the challenger. James hooks the leg; 1……… 2……… Gail Kim gets the shoulder up but Mickie is now solidly on top as she tries to retain her DIVA’s Championship. Mickie Irish whips Kim who ducks underneath a clothesline attempt but as she runs back, James leaps with the THESZ PRESS to her opponent and starts hammering away on Gail as the crowd cheer again at the fast-paced action they are seeing from both women.

    Mickie rolls off Gail and clotheslines her down to the canvas again before Irish whipping her into the turnbuckle on this occasion. James sprints but Gail sidesteps as James goes face first into the padding. Kim is now standing behind Mickie and grabs her round the waist looking for some sort of suplex. Instead she pushes the DIVA’s Champion face first into the turnbuckle again before turning her around. Kim chops Mickie three times and then lifts her into the seated position on the top turnbuckle. The crowd go quiet as they sense something big may be about to go down with the DIVA’s Title on the line. Gail slowly joins Mickie on the top rope but she stands before calling for it. Gail jumps and drills Mickie into the canvas with a FRANKENSTEINER! This has to be it! New DIVA’s Champion! 1………… 2………… Somehow Mickie James gets her right leg on the bottom rope to force the referee to stop his pinfall count. James will not be beaten at Cyber Sunday!

    Gail Kim cannot believe it as her jaw drops with shock that James managed to kick out of the high impact manoeuvre. That shock stops quickly though as The Empress quickly refocuses on the task in hand and gets Mickie to her feet. Gail connects with a SNAP SUPLEX and wastes no time in climbing to the top rope and facing into the crowd. Kim leaps and connects with a picture-perfect MOONSAULT! Kim hooks the leg as she thinks this could be it again. 1…………… 2………… Mickie James somehow kicks out again! Gail checks with the referee to make sure it was just a two and it is confirmed to her that the match will continue. The WWE Universe are in disbelief at what they are seeing and it may be the first time they have been into a DIVA’s match for quite some time. Kim taunts and signals that she is about to be wearing the DIVA’s Championship around her waist as she refocuses on Mickie James once again.

    Gail calls for the end of the match and that can only mean one thing – the EAT DEFEAT. She gets Mickie to her feet and twists her arm ready to deliver her finishing move but James suddenly bursts into life and gets a shot of adrenaline as she avoids it and takes down Kim with a REVERSE ROUNDHOUSE KICK! Mickie James is exhausted as Gail Kim falls to the canvas like dead weight. The current DIVA’s Champion falls into a pinfall attempt; 1…………… 2…………… This time Kim shocks the WWE Universe in somehow getting her shoulder up at the last moment. Both women lay on the canvas gasping for air at what this match has taken out of both of them as the crowd cheer loudly and continuously and the camera pans out so you can see the reaction of the Target Center who are loving what they are seeing from Mickie James and Gail Kim. Slowly both DIVA’s get to their feet and start throwing big forearms and chops to one another.

    The crowd cannot decide who to back in the match and end up cheering both women as they throw right hands. In the end Gail Kim looks to kick Mickie in the gut but that turns into a big error as Mickie James catches the leg and nails her with another MICK KICK. Gail falls to the canvas but instead of going for the pinfall, Mickie slowly and methodically gets Kim to her feet and in position for the MICKIE-DT. She points her finger in the air to signal for the move but Gail is having none of it and slides out, grabs Mickie’s arm and goes for EAT DEFEAT. As she jumps backwards, Mickie manages to grab the top rope and Kim crashes and burns. She holds the back of her neck but Mickie wastes no time in getting her to her feet and in one fluid motion driving her head first into the mat with the MICKIE-DT!!! Mickie James hooks the leg; 1……………… 2……………… 3!! Mickie James is still the DIVA’s Champion.

    Winner: Mickie James via pinfall after a Mickie-DT to RETAIN the DIVA’s Championship (11:17)


    Cole:
    Mickie James does it! She holds onto the DIVA’s Championship and what a match that was. The crowd are going nuts, listen to this place. We may have just witnessed a Match of the Year candidate in the women’s division. Mickie James proves once again why she is a future Hall of Famer and a seven-time champion. What a match, I honestly thought Gail Kim was going to do it King.
    King:
    I told you before the match these may be the best women in the ring in the WWE today and boy did they deliver. I couldn’t take my eyes off the action and I don’t think I’ve seen anything like that in recent years. I want to see these two go at it again and again and again. That Mickie-DT left Gail Kim with no chance of kicking out and it was going to take something huge for one of them to keep the other one down.
    Cole:
    It sure was. Mickie James retains the DIVA’s Championship in impressive fashion but there is no doubt these two put on an unbelievable show here tonight at Cyber Sunday. And it looks like their respect has only grown as a result after the WWE Universe voted Kim as the number one contender.

    Back in the ring Mickie James celebrates her hard-fought win and is handed the DIVA’s Championship belt by the referee which she holds aloft. Mickie goes to the two corners on the hard camera side and holds the title belt aloft as the WWE Universe cheer. Mickie ends up standing in the middle of the ring as Gail Kim struggles to her feet. The DIVA’s Champion helps the challenger she just beat to her feet and the two shake hands and follow it up with a hug as the crowd cheer and applaud to show their respect for the clinic these two ladies just put on. The camera fades with the two hugging in the ring.



    We get the Don’t Try This At Home advert followed by a WWEShop.com advert at Cyber Sunday as the latest Triple H and Edge shirts are highlighted the most and a deal on Championship belts tonight only. The camera then fades back to ringside but we go straight to the host of Cyber Sunday, Todd Grisham.



    Cyber Sunday host – Todd Grisham:
    Welcome back to Cyber Sunday everyone and what a night it has been so far right here in Minneapolis. And next up it is time for a bonus match from three potential options the WWE Universe have been voting for all week long. Will we see the United States Championship on the line with Matt Hardy defending against Christian and Lance Cade? Will there be a different Triple Threat match with Mr Money in the Bank, John Morrison taking on CM Punk and Edge or will the Cruiserweight Champion, Kaval defend his gold against none other than Primo! It is time to find out who will be in action right here, right now!

    ----------------------DRUM ROLL--------------------

    Cyber Sunday host – Todd Grisham:
    You have voted for John Morrison vs. CM Punk vs. Edge!!!

    The music of CM Punk hits and the crowd boo loudly as the leader of the Straight Edge Society comes through the curtain. Punk is flanked by the anti-DIVA, Serena as well as his disciples Luke Gallows and Mike Knox. Punk is showered with boos but ignores it all as he strides up the steel steps and all four stand in a row in the middle of the ring looking extremely confident. Punk then signals with his hands for his opponents to come and join him ahead of the match.

    The first is none other than the SmackDown Money in the Bank holder, John Morrison. The Guru of Greatness gets a nice pop from the sold out Target Center crowd and knows tonight will be a great test for him with the entire Straight Edge Society lurking. Morrison wisely chooses to not get in the ring but he does taunt with his blue Money in the Bank briefcase outside which seems to tick off CM Punk and his minions as he has no such guarantee at a World Heavyweight Championship shot.

    The final man to enter the fray is none other than the Rated R Superstar, Edge. The crowd come unglued as the former World Heavyweight Champion stands at the top of the stage and his pyro goes off all around him. Edge is wearing yellow and black this evening as he stands on the outside alongside John Morrison and looks like him as if there is some sort of plan they have.


    Mathews:
    The WWE Universe have spoken and it is a Triple Threat match on behalf of Friday Night SmackDown which will take place here tonight at Cyber Sunday. None other than CM Punk will take on John Morrison and Edge in what is sure to be one heck of a contest. And with the entire Straight Edge Society here at ringside and the no disqualification rules this one could go very badly for Morrison and Edge.
    Striker:
    You have to say this is quite brilliant from our Straight Edge Saviour, CM Punk. He knows the rules of this match and can have Luke Gallows, Mike Knox and Serena with him with no fear of officials getting rid of them. It is no disqualification which means he is perfectly within the rules to have his disciples and those he trusts the most with him here at Cyber Sunday.
    Mathews:
    Matt there is nothing brilliant about this. CM Punk and the Straight Edge Society are once again about to use the numbers game to their advantage and you can clearly see that. But we may be about to see something very different here because John Morrison has the Money in the Bank briefcase and Edge has a steel chair!!!


    CM Punk vs. Edge vs. John Morrison
    Spoiler:

    [color=darkgrey]VOTING RESULTS:[/color]
    CM Punk vs. Edge vs. John Morrison – 60%
    Kaval © vs. Primo – 13%
    Matt Hardy © vs. Lance Cade vs. Christian – 27%


    The crowd cheer loudly as CM Punk looks extremely concerned in the ring with Edge and John Morrison armed and ready to strike to even the numbers game before the match even officially gets started. CM Punk sends Luke Gallows and Mike Knox to the outside to fight his Triple Threat opponents but it doesn’t end well for the Straight Edge Society. Edge nails Gallows in the midriff with the edge of the chair before hitting him hard three times across the back. Knox doesn’t do any better as Morrison ducks a clothesline attempt and launches his Money in the Bank briefcase off the skull on the Monstrous member of the SES. It stuns Knox and Morrison follows it up with a huge Tornado DDT onto the briefcase which leaves him laid out. CM Punk and Serena look on in the ring and cannot believe the odds have been evened by Edge and Morrison. The Rated R Superstar and Mr Money in the Bank stride into the ring as Serena scurries to the outside and the bell rings.

    CM Punk knows the numbers are against him and tries to fight back as Edge and John Morrison go after him to the delight of the crowd. They hammer away and Punk is quickly floored before they throw CM Punk to the outside where there is a wreckage of Straight Edge Society members. John Morrison nods at Edge but instead of fighting the Rated R Superstar he has something else planned and goes to the top rope facing the inside directly at Edge. Morrison leaps and jumps high in the air with a MOONSAULT to the outside where he takes out CM Punk even more. Morrison taunts as Edge goes to the outside where medical officials and referees are helping Luke Gallows and Mike Knox to the back. Serena is going spare at the carnage she has witnessed in the early going but she can do nothing to help CM Punk at this stage. Edge and Morrison get Punk to his feet and throw him hard into the barricade wall as his body flops into a heap. Morrison and Edge return to the ring and have made it a one-on-one contest at least for the time being.

    Edge and John Morrison keep the pace going with a number of big right hands to one another. The Rated R Superstar Irish whips Morrison who ducks underneath a clothesline attempt and on the rebound takes the former World Heavyweight Champion down with a nice BACK HEEL KICK. Edge is quickly back to his feet as Morrison grabs him round the neck but Edge elbows his way out of the move. Edge Irish whips Morrison again and this time he takes out Mr Money in the Bank with a SPINNING HEEL KICK of his own as the crowd cheer at how evenly matched these two are and the energy they are expending so far in the contest. Before long both Morrison and Edge are both back to their feet and throwing big right hands at one another once more. Edge goes for a big chop and then a punch but Morrison blocks it, grabs the Ultimate Opportunist and throws all of his momentum back to plant him with an unbelievable STANDING SPANISH FLY! Morrison goes for the cover after the incredible move which makes the crowd gasp; 1…… 2…… Edge kicks out just in time.

    The crowd cheer loudly as suddenly CM Punk springboards in off the top rope and takes out both Edge and John Morrison with a double clothesline as they slowly get to their feet. The crowd boo loudly as Serena cheers on the outside that the Straight Edge Saviour is back in the contest. Punk looks like he is going to make up for lost time as he aggressively throws John Morrison into the ring post which sends him crashing to the outside of the ring. Punk focuses on Edge now and lifts him up and drops him hard with a nice DOUBLE UNDERHOOK BACKBREAKER. 1……… 2……… Edge once again kicks out and won’t be beaten at this stage in the match. Punk maintains his focus and drags Edge to the corner where he hammers away before taking a few steps back and sprinting towards the Rated R Superstar. There it is! The RUNNING KNEE. Punk hooks his arms around the head of Edge and looks for a BULLDOG which he hits perfectly. Instead of pinning though Punk sprints to the other side of the ring and connects with a SUICIDE DIVE to John Morrison!

    CM Punk returns to the ring and stands tall in the middle of the ring as the crowd boo him loudly. The Straight Edge Saviour has somehow ended up on top in the contest and orders Serena to get him a microphone. Punk begins to run down the Minneapolis crowd mid-match! He says the only way any of them, the pathetic delinquents of this world, should be living is Straight Edge. As he spots the Rated R Superstar get back to his feet he nails him with the microphone before tossing it aside and smirking as arrogantly as possible. Punk looks at the fallen Edge and picks him up only to drop him with a scoop slam before leisurely ambling to the top rope. Punk stands with his arms aloft looking for the DIVING ELBOW! CM Punk hits it and hooks both legs; 1………… 2………… John Morrison is back in the ring and breaks up the victory attempt. Mr Money in the Bank hammers away at CM Punk and this one is getting more and more personal every minute. Morrison lifts Punk to his feet and slaps him across the face repeatedly as the crowd cheer wildly before the Friday Night Delight drops CM Punk with a HANGMAN NECKBREAKER. 1………… 2………… This time Edge breaks up the pin.

    All three men are in the ring and it is clear any of them could still win the match. Edge starts stomping away at CM Punk while he is on the floor as the crowd cheer. The former World Heavyweight Champion gets CM Punk to his feet and Irish whips him into the turnbuckle hard. The Rated R Superstar punches and kicks Punk in the head and gut before moving him into the seated position on the top turnbuckle. The crowd start to raise the level of volume as they sense they could be about to witness something truly memorable. Edge stands on the top rope facing into the crowd and CM Punk. He is about to jump and look for a FRANKENSTEINER when John Morrison gets behind him and gets Edge into a [b]POWERBOMB[b] position on his shoulders. But before he can deliver the move CM Punk leaps from the top rope and clotheslines Edge as Morrison sits out into the devastating move. Unlikely allies for a moment there as Morrison covers but CM Punk quickly drags Mr Money in the Bank off and they now start going at it like mortal enemies.

    Punk and Morrison throw big forearms and kicks with neither managing to get on top. Morrison goes for a big ROUNDHOUSE KICK but Punk ducks and tries one of his own but The Guru of Greatness has it well scouted. Morrison leaps and delivers a DROPSAULT but Punk is quick to get back to his feet and nearly takes Morrison’s head off with a STEP-UP ENZUIGIRI! Morrison is rocked but his momentum sends him towards the ropes and he jumps and leaps back to take CM Punk out with the FLYING CHUCK KICK! All three men are down as the Target Center explodes at the match they are witnessing on what has been quite a show so far. The referee doesn’t do anything as there is the match has to have a finish and after a few seconds with Serena looking on at ringside the trio get to their feet all at the same time and they all start throwing big right hands at one another again. It is now clearly every man looking to score the victory for themselves as we enter the deeper waters of the match.

    Nobody manages to get the upper hand in the match until Serena climbs onto the apron to distract John Morrison which allows CM Punk to take advantage of Mr Money in the Bank and dump him to the outside of the ring. What Punk doesn’t realise though is Edge is behind him and there it is! The EDGE-O-MATIC! The Rated R Superstar hooks both legs but Serena is on the apron again this time distracting the referee. The official in charge is John Cone and he is having none of it as he orders the Anti-DIVA to the back and CM Punk has lost his final ally and Straight Edge Society member in the match! It is now a truly level playing field as CM Punk blows his stack and turns right around into the EDGEOCUTION!!! Edge has beaten so many opponents over the years with his Impaler DDT and this could be another one. 1…………… 2…………… John Morrison breaks up the count as he springboards off the top rope with a huge LEG DROP to the back of the head of the Rated R Superstar.

    Edge is down, CM Punk is down and John Morrison is in the ascendancy as he looks to pick up a big win here at Cyber Sunday and underline his credentials as a future World Heavyweight Champion. Morrison drags CM Punk to his feet and signals for the MOONLIGHT DRIVE which he nails; 1…………… 2…………… The Straight Edge Saviour gets the shoulder up. Morrison switches his attention to Edge and lifts the Rated R Superstar to the seated position before using the ropes for momentum and smacking his knee straight off Edge’s forehead which echoes throughout the arena; 1…………… 2…………… Edge somehow gets his shoulder up which John Morrison cannot believe. Mr Money in the Bank wastes no time though and drags Edge to the corner of the ring. Morrison has STARSHIP PAIN in mind. Morrison leaps but he spots that Edge rolls out of the way and lands on his feet only to be levelled by CM Punk from behind.

    Morrison staggers and as he turns around CM Punk gets him on his shoulders and there it is! GO TO SLEEP to John Morrison as his head is nearly taken off with the huge knee from the leader of the Straight Edge Saviour. Before CM Punk can fall into the pin cover though Edge is sprinting towards him and hits the SPEAR!!! Edge falls into the cover with John Morrison laid out on the opposite side of the ring. Is this it?! 1……………… 2……………………… 3! Edge picks up the win as the Ultimate Opportunist is in the right place at the right time and pins CM Punk in an incredible Triple Threat bonus match here at Cyber Sunday!
    Spoiler:

    Winner: Edge via pinfall after a Spear to CM Punk (14:36)


    Mathews:
    Edge has done it! The Ultimate Opportunist strikes to pick up an incredible win here at Cyber Sunday in a Triple Threat match with John Morrison and CM Punk that these fans will be talking about for some time. The action was frantic and frenetic but as has so often been the case over the years, the Rated R Superstar wins with a Spear and there was nothing Punk could do. What a match Matt!
    Striker:
    What a night Josh! The action just keeps getting better and that was an incredible bout to witness live here even if it was in Minneapolis. But we cannot ignore the injustice that was done here with CM Punk’s Straight Edge Society attacked before the match and then the official ejecting Serena midway through the match. The Straight Edge Saviour, CM Punk has every right to feel mighty aggrieved here tonight.
    Mathews:
    The Straight Edge Society got exactly what they deserved Matt. Edge victorious here tonight and there is so much more to come with Sheamus defending the World Heavyweight Championship against Daniel Bryan later in the evening and the Intercontinental Championship on the line next on the SmackDown side of things. Listen to these fans, they cannot get enough of the Rated R Superstar!

    All three men are exhausted after that match as Edge stands with his hand held high in victory. His Spear gave him the victory but on any other given night anyone could have won that match. Edge makes his way up the ramp with his iconic theme playing and gets a nice pop from the Minneapolis crowd as the screen eventually fades to the backstage area after another commercial for WWE merchandise. The atmosphere is about to change somewhat.



    Backstage Interviewer – Byron Saxton:
    Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time, he is the lead of The Empire and World Heavyweight Champion, the Celtic Warrior, SHEAMUS!

    The crowd boo loudly as Sheamus enters the shot with his wrestling attire on and Empire t-shirt with the World Heavyweight Championship over his shoulder. Sheamus enjoys the negative reaction he is getting as Bryon continues.

    Backstage Interviewer – Byron Saxton:
    Sheamus, tonight you take on the American Dragon, Daniel Bryan with your World Heavyweight Championship on the line and you don’t know the type of match you will face off in yet. It could be a Falls Count Anywhere match, a submission match or a Tables match. Do you have any preference?

    World Heavyweight Champions – Sheamus:
    Do I have any preference? Byron let me remind you I am the World Heavyweight Champion fella’. I am the most dominant superstar SmackDown has ever seen and The Empire have conquered all in recent months on Friday nights. Tonight will be no different because Daniel Bryan cannot beat me whatever the stipulation. Bryan has got guts I’ll give him that but the Celtic Warrior will prove his dominance here tonight as The Empire stand tall at Cyber Sunday.

    Backstage Interviewer – Byron Saxton:
    You sound awfully confident Sheamus. Is this because you have some sort of plan for the rest of The Empire to help you in defending the World Heavyweight Championship tonight?

    World Heavyweight Champions – Sheamus:
    Are you kidding me? I do not need the help of anyone. I am the Celtic Warrior, I am the leader of The Empire and I am a two-time World Heavyweight Champion. So Byron…

    Before he can say anymore, Sheamus is interrupted by none other than John Morrison holding his Money in the Bank briefcase as he is on his way to the backstage area following his Triple Threat match with Edge and CM Punk. Sheamus looks a little concerned as Morrison wishes him luck ironically in his match tonight against Daniel Bryan. Morrison says he’ll be watching very closely before tapping his briefcase. He walks off as Sheamus can’t hide the fact he is concerned and we head back to ringside.



    Mathews:
    Sheamus has been warned by Mr Money in the Bank, John Morrison ahead of his match with Daniel Bryan for the World Heavyweight Championship here tonight. You could tell the Celtic Warrior was worried as well. John Morrison may have just got straight into the head of The Empire leader. And Daniel Bryan could also gain an advantage as a result Matt.
    Striker:
    He could but let’s remember just how successful The Empire have been in recent weeks and months on SmackDown. Sheamus, Finlay, Drew McIntyre and Paul Burchill have conquered all that have stood before them. And another man that has impressed is none other than the Intercontinental Champion, Dolph Ziggler. And the Reflection of Perfection has another title defence up next Josh.
    Mathews:
    He does indeed but there is a big unknown for Ziggler with his opponent yet to be decided. The WWE Universe have been voting on whether it will be Evan Bourne, Alberto Del Rio or Rey Mysterio. Gregory Helms was an option to start with but he has suffered a broken nose taking him out of the running. And here comes the Intercontinental Champion ready to find out his opponent.

    The music of Dolph Ziggler hits the PA system and the crowd give the Intercontinental Champion a somewhat mixed reaction. His performances in the ring as of late have clearly impressed some in the WWE Universe, but his arrogant demeanour had not enamoured him to all. Ziggler is wearing some silver wrestling trunks as he steps in the ring and lifts the Intercontinental Championship high in the air before the camera cuts backstage to Todd Grisham who has Evan Bourne, Alberto Del Rio and Rey Mysterio beside him.

    Cyber Sunday host – Todd Grisham:
    Ladies and gentlemen it is time for the Intercontinental Championship match this evening at Cyber Sunday! But who did you decide should face Dolph Ziggler here tonight? Was it the high-flying Evan Bourne? Did you choose the Mexican Aristocrat, Alberto Del Rio? Or perhaps the Master of the 619, Rey Mysterio? It is time to find out!

    ----------------------DRUM ROLL--------------------


    Dolph Ziggler © vs. ???
    Spoiler:

    VOTING RESULTS:
    Evan Bourne – 50%
    Alberto Del Rio – 21%
    Rey Mysterio – 29%


    It is Evan Bourne!!! Air Bourne received exactly half the vote and gets his opportunity to win the Intercontinental Championship here tonight at Cyber Sunday. Alberto Del Rio and Rey Mysterio look disappointed as Bourne’s music hits and he explodes through the curtain. The crowd pop loudly for the former Cruiserweight Champion as he sprints down the entrance ramp and makes his way into the ring. Ziggler nods clearly looking forward to this match with the clash of styles particularly intriguing. Bourne takes his t-shirt off as he is dressed in green and black wrestling tights. The referee checks both competitors are ready and then signals the start of the match.


    Dolph Ziggler tries to ground Evan Bourne in the early going with his amateur skills and to a point is successful. He takes Bourne down with a Side Headlock before switching into a Body Scissors but Bourne eventually Kips Up as the two stand face-to-face and both nod their respect to one another. Perhaps a surprising move from Ziggler but he is clearly excited about the contest with the former Cruiserweight Champion here at Cyber Sunday. Ziggler changes tact and kicks Bourne in the gut before Irish whipping the smaller man who seems to gather more and more speed, ducking a clothesline attempt and taking Dolph down with a leaping lariat instead. Bourne doesn’t let Ziggler back into the match as he takes the Intercontinental Champion to the mat again with the HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN. Ziggler quickly slides under the bottom rope and to the outside as he looks to get his breath back after a fast-paced start from the challenger.

    Ziggler tells the referee to keep Bourne back before he slowly and deliberately makes his way back into the squared circle. Dolph starts talking some trash to Evan as the two lock up in the middle of the ring on this occasion. Ziggler is clearly more powerful and pushes Bourne back into the turnbuckle before the referee orders him to break. The Intercontinental Champion reluctantly does before delivering a cheap shot to Bourne which sends him crashing to the canvas. Ziggler drags his body into the middle of the ring and goes for an early cover; 1… 2… Evan Bourne kicks out at this early juncture in the match. Ziggler realises he has a chance to stay in control and stomps away at the fallen body of Bourne before he lifts him to his feet and drives him into the canvas with a REVERSE BODY SLAM. Dolph isn’t done there though as he notices Bourne hanging under the bottom rope and BASEBALL SLIDES the challenger to the outside.

    Ziggler follows his opponent to the outside and shows a vicious streak many don’t recognise the Reflection of Perfection for. Dolph hammers away at Bourne before Irish whipping him hard into the ring apron as Bourne flies back first and upside down into the structure. Ziggler smirks as he picks Bourne up again and this time drops him sternum first across the railings. Bourne holds his chest and neck as Ziggler lifts him up to his feet and tosses him back into the ring as he focuses on trying to retain his title. Bourne is slowly back to his feet as Dolph Ziggler delivers the FAMOUSER early! Ziggler hooks both legs as the crowd sense this one could be over early; 1…… 2…… Bourne manages to get the shoulder up but is clearly struggling to get oxygen to his body with the punishment he has taken from Dolph. Ziggler tells the referee to count quicker before he gets Bourne to his feet and Irish whips him hard into the turnbuckle which leaves Bourne writhing around on the mat.

    Dolph Ziggler is now in control and looks on course to retain his title as he delivers his trademark multiple elbow drops to the midriff of Bourne. Ziggler rotates his hips in trademark fashion before connecting with the final elbow to the heart of the challenger. Ziggler covers but Evan Bourne kicks out again as the Intercontinental Champion smirks arrogantly almost happy he can do more damage to his opponent. Ziggler picks Evan Bourne up to his feet and Irish whips him into the turnbuckle again following it up with a picture perfect STINGER SPLASH. Bourne is really struggling here as Dolph gets Bourne on his shoulders and connects with a huge FIREMAN’S CARRY GUTBUSTER! Bourne’s body goes limp as he falls to the mat and Ziggler hooks the leg again as he looks to seal a big win; 1……… 2……… Evan Bourne will not be beaten and with every kick out the crowd get louder and louder in support of the former Cruiserweight Champion.

    Ziggler tells them all to shut up and anyone who was previously supporting him for his incredible in-ring talents now boos the reigning Intercontinental Champion. Dolph refocuses and picks up Bourne once more and this time places Evan Bourne in the seated position on the top rope. Ziggler clearly has something big planned in mind and slowly climbs to the ropes to stand in front of Bourne who is still sitting. It looks like Dolph may be looking for a FRANKENSTEINER but the challenger suddenly shows some signs of life! Bourne headbutts the midriff of Ziggler repeatedly and starts punching and chopping at Ziggler as well. The Intercontinental Champion eventually is forced to go down from the ropes and is in a standing position as Bourne slowly gathers himself and stands on the top rope facing the Reflection of Perfection. Bourne leaps and takes Ziggler down with the METEORA from the top rope. Bourne desperately claws to get to Ziggler and drapes his arm across the Intercontinental Champion. 1…………… 2…………… Dolph just gets the shoulder up!

    Evan Bourne tries to slowly get back to his feet although he is exhausted and realises it is crucial that he tries to stay on top on in the match if he wants to become the new Intercontinental Champion. Bourne hammers away at Ziggler who is also back to his feet and connects with a SPINNING HEEL KICK which rocks the champion. Bourne knows he has to capitalise and rocks Ziggler with a STEP-UP ENZUIGIRI this time as Dolph’s body collapses to the mat but instead of pinning Bourne follows it up with a STANDING MOONSAULT. Now Evan hooks the leg and thinks he may have done enough to pick up a thrilling victory; 1………… 2………… Ziggler manages to get the shoulder up once more much to the frustration of the challenger. Evan Bourne is trying to stay focused and is clearly thinking of something big and goes to the outside of the ring to the apron as he looks to springboard in. Bourne leaps but is caught by Ziggler and dropped in one fluid movement with a SITOUT POWERBOMB! What a move! Dolph Ziggler covers; 1…………… 2…………… This time Evan Bourne somehow kicks out to keep the match alive!

    What is it going to take for one of these wrestlers to win this match and walk out of Cyber Sunday as the Intercontinental Champion? Both Evan Bourne and Dolph Ziggler stay down for a prolonged period of time as they try to get their breath back after an encounter of breakneck speed so far. Ziggler is first to his feet with Bourne following shortly after as the two once again throw right hands at one another. Ziggler Irish whips Bourne who comes back and slides through the legs of Dolph and on the rebound he dropkicks the Intercontinental Champion who is rocked. Bourne bow sprints full speed ahead at Dolph but in one unbelievable fluid motion, Ziggler drops Bourne with a beautiful POWERSLAM. Ziggler hooks the leg again but this time Bourne gets his foot on the rope to break the count. Dolph is now angry and lifts Bourne to his feet, despite the former Cruiserweight Champion being groggy and leaps taking him down with his trademark DDT as he spikes the challenger’s head into the mat. 1……………… 2……………… Evan Bourne again refuses to give up on his chance to win the Intercontinental Title.

    Dolph Ziggler is now going spare that he cannot put away the challenger and tries to turn it up another notch in terms of his plan of attack. Ziggler hauls Bourne to his feet and quickly locks in the SLEEPER HOLD. The thinking is clearly that if he can’t pin the challenger he will make him pass out instead as he has several other wrestlers over the years. Ziggler has his hands locked around the neck of Bourne and it looks like the high-flying star is fading as the referee gets ready to raise his arm and check if he is out or not. The referee raises Bourne’s floppy arm in the air and drops it but Bourne braces the arm and begins to fight out of Ziggler’s submission hold. Bourne elbows Ziggler and flails his way out. Ziggler goes for a clothesline to try and re-assert his dominance but Bourne sees it coming and on the rebound Dolph is met with an impactful ROUNDHOUSE KICK. The sounds of foot on head echoes throughout the arena as Ziggler flops to the mat hard. Bourne is slow to cover though because he is exhausted from the Sleeper Hold. 1………………… 2………………… Ziggler refuses to be beaten.

    Bourne wastes no time in realising he now has his best chance yet to become the new Intercontinental Champion as he sees that Dolph Ziggler is laying prone in the centre of the ring. Evan Bourne climbs to the top rope and looks for AIR BOURNE, his Shooting Star Press, but Ziggler rolls out of the way. Fortunately, the challenger sees it coming and lands on his feet incredibly only to be nailed with a SUPERKICK from Dolph. The Reflection of Perfection almost takes Bourne’s head off with the shot as the crowd gasp loudly, but the ferocity of the shot sends Bourne straight through the ropes and to the outside. Ziggler desperately tries to reach him before he falls but cannot prevent it as the crowd cheer and Dolph looks completely exasperated. Dolph eventually gets his wits about him and orders the referee to start counting Bourne out as he is now clearly happy to take the victory any way he can after being pushed all the way from the exciting young star.

    The referee counts and reaches seven with Bourne slowly starting to move on the outside. At eight, the challenger is trying to get to his feet with the help of the announce tables, at nine he is at the ring apron and he just makes it back into the ring without being counted out much to the chagrin of Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler immediately goes on the onslaught and stomps away at Bourne who doesn’t even make it to his feet as the referee admonishes the Intercontinental Champion. Dolph doesn’t care though and lifts Bourne to his feet as he looks to end it once and for all. Ziggler almost gets caught though as Bourne out of nowhere rolls him up! 1……………… 2……………… Ziggler just kicks out much to his relief. The roll up eventually works against Evan Bourne though as Dolph Ziggler is actually back to his feet first and there it is! Dolph Ziggler plants Evan Bourne with the ZIG ZAG!!! Dolph Ziggler hooks both legs with Evan Bourne motionless. 1……………… 2……………… 3! Dolph Ziggler retains the Intercontinental Championship in a frantic contest.

    Winner: Dolph Ziggler via pinfall after a Zig Zag to RETAIN the Intercontinental Championship (15:05)


    Mathews:
    What a match! Dolph Ziggler retains the Intercontinental Championship in another incredible match here at Cyber Sunday against Evan Bourne. The Reflection of Perfection managed to keep hold of the gold despite not finding out his opponent until just before the bout. Ziggler puts another opponent away with the Zig Zag but what a superb showing from Evan Bourne as well in his first opportunity to win the title.
    Striker:
    The heart of Evan Bourne cannot be doubted after tonight but Ziggler just had too much for the former Cruiserweight Champion to contend with. This Dolph Ziggler is a future World Heavyweight Champion for sure and every time I see him I get even more impressed. That may have been the match that steals the show here tonight in Minneapolis. Dolph Ziggler is still the Intercontinental Champion.
    Mathews:
    Incredible sequences and an incredible win for the man who loves showing off. Dolph Ziggler may have had the odds stacked against him here tonight but he has once again proved any doubters he had wrong with overcoming Evan Bourne. It looked like we may crown a new champion at times but Ziggler dug as deep as he could to get the one, two, three.

    In the ring Dolph Ziggler is handed the Intercontinental Championship after winning he hard-fought contest with Evan Bourne. Ziggler slowly uses the ropes to keep his balance as he holds the gold above his head and the crowd are mixed in their response. Some of them don’t like the way Dolph goes about his business but they still respect just how good he is in the ring. Ziggler gets out of the ring and walks backwards up the ramp before lifting the Intercontinental Title belt above his head as the camera cuts to the ring with Evan Bourne sitting against the bottom turnbuckle holding the back of his head. The final shot is of Ziggler walking through the curtain to the back with Intercontinental Championship over his shoulder.






    The Alpha Male, Marcus Cor Von is coming to RAW!



    Cole:
    We have not seen Marcus Cor Von since 2007 and he was a powerhouse back on ECW. The RAW superstars better watch out for the Alpha Male because he will be sure to make an instant impact on Monday nights. King it has been quite a night so far as we just saw Dolph Ziggler retain the Intercontinental Championship but now we have some tag team action from our side of things with a very unlikely duo trying to get along.
    King:
    John Cena and Randy Orton! I never thought I would see the day when these two WWE stars would end up aligned but it looks like reluctantly they have to try and see off these two young upstarts in Carlito and Chris Masters who are trying to make a real impact here. They both have huge potential and have got the better of Cena and Orton in recent weeks on Monday Night RAW. Can they do it here tonight on a bigger stage though?
    Cole:
    We are about to find out as we have some blockbuster tag team action up next. And don’t forget later this evening WWE Champion, Jack Swagger will take on The Game, Triple H in our main event here at Cyber Sunday. But first, here comes The Masterpiece!

    The music of The Masterpiece, Chris Masters hits and he walks out to some serious heat from the crowd. Masters looks focused and ready though and flexes his muscles at the top of the ramp in trademark fashion as he has blue trunks and knee pads on. Masters has noticeably lost some muscle in recent times and has improved in the ring as well. Masters gets in the ring as his music stops and Carlito now enters. The man from the Caribbean looks extremely cocky and confident with apple in hand as he saunters down the entrance ramp and joins Masters in the squared circle.

    The atmosphere changes drastically as none other than John Cena enters the Cyber Sunday picture. The multiple-time former WWE Champion gets his trademark mixed reaction from the WWE Universe but he takes it in his stride, sprinting down the aisle and into the ring as Carlito and Masters get out not wanting anything to do with him. Cena stands and stares at them as he awaits his unlikely tag team partner. The guitar riff which signals the arrival of Randy Orton hits the PA system as The Viper slowly makes his way out with his usual attire on. Orton looks focused and ready and gets a mixed reaction but more of a pop than Cena as he gets ready for the match. Randy enters the ring and looks at Cena and gives him a nod of approval as this tag team match is set.



    John Cena & Randy Orton vs. Carlito & Chris Masters

    John Cena and Carlito start the match for their respective teams. These two have a long history with the leader of the Cenation famously battling the man for the Caribbean for the United States Championship early on in his career. There’s no locking up or slow start to this one as Cena immediately goes after Carlito with big right hands but the referee eventually forces the multiple-time WWE Champion off his opponent. Cena struggles to contain his anger as he steps back and then goes right back in at the arrogant star. Cena tosses Carlito across the ring before he connects with a powerful clothesline which shakes the ring as the crowd mostly cheer. Cena continues his onslaught with yet another clothesline before Irish whipping Carlito hard into the turnbuckle. The impact sends him writhing around in pain holding his back as Chris Masters looks on from the apron looking concerned for his tag team partner.

    Cena is like a man possessed so far in the match as he gets Carlito to his feet and drags him to his corner where he tags Randy Orton in for the first time. The Legend Killer gets a nice reaction from the Cyber Sunday crowd as he takes control of Carlito and Cena gets on the apron. Orton delivers a number of European uppercuts before he hoists his opponent up, high in the air, and drops him with a unique looking neckbreaker. Orton hooks the leg for the first time in the match; 1… 2… Carlito kicks out in the early moments of the contest. Randy stays focused and Irish whips Carlito who ducks under a clothesline attempt. The man from the Caribbean runs back as Orton drops to the mat and Carlito jumps over him and on the way back from the ropes once more he is met with a picture perfect DROPKICK right to the chin which rocks the man from the Caribbean. Orton taunts to the crowd who pop loudly for the Apex Predator.

    This proves to be his downfall as when he turns back to Carlito he is met with a rake to the eyes as he scurries to his corner and tags in Chris Masters. The muscle-bound star enters and is not intimidated in the slightest by Orton. The Legend Killer is not backing down as he trades punches with the Masterpiece but it doesn’t end well for him as Masters simply overpowers him and pushes Orton back into the turnbuckle. Randy runs from the corner at the powerhouse but he is BACK BODY DROPPED and lands with a thud on the canvas. Masters goes for a quick cover; 1…… 2…… Orton is not going to be beaten that easily. Masters quickly slows the pace down and applies a headlock onto the former Evolution member. Randy is breathing heavily as the Masterpiece puts more and more torque on the neck of his opponent but the crowd eventually get behind Orton who works his way back up to a vertical base and takes Masters down with a BACK DROP. Orton needed that badly with Masters beginning to dominate.

    Orton gets back to his feet along with Masters and we are back to square one in the contest. The Legend Killer is determined to gain some momentum and goes mad with multiple European uppercuts but they only rock Masters. Orton decides to use the ropes for an added assist as he goes for a clothesline but he is met with mat as Masters POWERSLAMS his opponent. The Masterpiece is on top as he drags the body of Orton to his corner and tags in Carlito. The former United States Champion and Masters now make frequent tags and overwhelm Orton in the next few minutes. They stomp away repeatedly before Masters drops Randy with a SAMOAN DROP before Carlito springboards in with a nice ELBOW DROP to the midriff of the Legend Killer. Carlito covers; 1……… 2……… Orton refuses to give up though and gets the shoulder up as Carlito immediately questions what he perceives to be a slow count from the referee.

    Carlito turns his attention back to Orton but the momentary lapse costs him. Orton quickly grabs the Colon and throws him through the ropes and to the outside as he lands with a thud. Randy slowly drags his way over to his corner and makes the tag to a refreshed John Cena. The Chain Gang Soldier sprints in the ring as Carlito is now back in the squared circle and almost clotheslines him out of his boots. Cena takes him down with a couple of trademark shoulder blocks before he punches Masters off the ring apron. Cena raises his right hand in the air and signals for the FIVE KNUCKLE SHUFFLE as he rebounds off the ropes and is about to go for the signature move but an angry Masterpiece is back in the ring. Masters lifts Cena up and slams him down hard with a MODIFIED SPINEBUSTER! Masters isn’t done there though as he drags Carlito on top of Cena for the pinfall attempt. The referee refuses to count until the Masterpiece gets back on the apron but eventually he does; 1………… 2………… Cena gets the shoulder up on this occasion.

    Carlito has taken a lot of punishment and is slow to his feet as he looks to take advantage of his tag team partner’s help in flooring Cena. Carlito looks at Cena and is clearly thinking something as he grabs him by the neck and drops him to the canvas hard again twisting his body with a SNAP FISHERMAN’S NECKBREAKER. The crowd gasp at the impact of the move as Carlito hooks the leg once again; 1…………… 2…………… Cena gets his foot on the bottom rope much to the annoyance of Carlito. The man from the Caribbean kicks his leg off the rope and hooks both again but this time Cena kicks out. It seems to give Carlito a second wind in the ring as he Irish whips Cena into his corner and tags in Masters. The Masterpiece lifts John Cena high in the ring and drops him with an impressive DELAYED VERTICAL SUPLEX followed up by Carlito delivering a LEG DROP from the second rope. Masters pins Cena on this occasion; 1…………… 2…………… Again the former WWE Champion gets the shoulder up much to the annoyance of the Masterpiece.

    Masters isn’t playing around here and gets John Cena to his feet quickly, slapping him across the face hard. This seems to spark Cena back into a new consciousness though and The Masterpiece quickly looks like he regrets what he just did. Cena slaps Masters back and tackles him down to the canvas hammering away until the referee orders him off. Cena takes Masters down with a nice FISHERMAN’S SUPLEX and follows it up by going to the top rope. He leaps and connects with the trademark LEG DROP to the back of the head of a hunched over and groggy Masters. Cena pins but only gets a two count and quickly tags the Legend Killer back into the ring. Orton smirks as he sets up Masters in position for his deadly HANGMAN’S DDT! The crowd get louder and louder and at the crescendo Orton drops Masters straight on his head! Randy Orton hooks the leg; 1……………… 2……………… Carlito breaks up the pinfall attempt as the crowd boo loudly.

    John Cena is back in the ring before Carlito can get out of the way of his attack and he brawls with the Caribbean superstar as the referee tries to separate them. Orton is distracted by it and Masters takes advantage with a LOW BLOW! The Masterpiece rolls up the Apex Predator as the referee now turns his attention back to the two and begins a pin count. Before he can get to two though Cena and Carlito have taken each other down and into Orton and Masters which leaves all four men down on the mat in scenes of chaos here at Cyber Sunday. Cena and Carlito are back to their feet first though as the Chain Gang Soldier gets the man from the Caribbean on his shoulders and goes for the FU! Carlito reverses and rolls off the shoulders of Cena and in one fluid motion takes his opponent out with the BACK CRACKER!!! There it is! Carlito and Cena aren’t the legal men though.

    Carlito turns his attention to Orton now as the referee has lost all control of the match. Carlito and Masters double team Randy with a number of punches and kicks before they taunt to the crowd who boo loudly. Carlito and Chris Masters clearly think they have everything under control when it comes to the match. But as Carlito turns around he is met with an RKO OUT OF NOWHERE!!! Carlito is nailed with the move and rolls to the outside such was the impact. Chris Masters has a worried look on his face knowing it is now an enraged Orton versus him in the ring with no tag team partner to help him overcome the Legend Killer. The Masterpiece sprints towards Orton but he is met with a SNAP POWERSLAM as Randy is pumped up and feeling it from the sold-out crowd in Minneapolis. They cheer loudly as Orton slithers around on the mat clearly with one thing in mind. The Masterpiece is slow to gradually get to his feet as Orton goes for the RKO! Before he can though Chris Masters in one move locks in the MASTER LOCK! Chris Masters has it in or does he? No! Orton didn’t let it happen and twists Masters arms sending him around in a circle before he end up face-to-face again with the Legend Killer and this time he does receive an RKO!!! Randy Orton nails it as he smoothly transitions into the cover; 1……………… 2……………… 3! Randy Orton and John Cena are victorious in a hard-fought contest.
    Spoiler:

    Winners: John Cena & Randy Orton via pinfall after an RKO to Chris Masters (15:06)


    Cole:
    Randy Orton and John Cena have done it! They have worked together here uniting against a common enemy and the Legend Killer has picked up the win for his team with two devastating RKOs. That move has beaten the best of them and it was enough to put away Carlito and Chris Masters here tonight. And Cena was more aggressive than we have seen in some time. It seems tonight’s opponents have really got under the skin of John.
    King:
    Well can you blame him? These two have tried everything they can on RAW in recent weeks to not only take out Cena but to then also turn Randy Orton against his former arch-rival. Orton is the man who gets the one, two, three tonight but something tells me Carlito and Masters may have something to say about tomorrow night on RAW. These two won’t go away quietly.
    Cole:
    You may be right if the last few months are anything to go by King. Carlito and Masters have a bright future ahead of them even if I do disagree with the way they use their considerable talent every week. What a win that was for John Cena and Randy Orton though. They looked like a well-oiled machine out here and I wonder if we just might see them together a few more times in the future because of how well it went.

    Randy Orton celebrates in the ring after beating Chris Masters with the RKO as a groggy John Cena enters and celebrates on the opposite turnbuckle. Orton gets down from his turnbuckle as does Cena and the two are in the centre of the ring as the referee raises their hands in victory and there appears to be no tension between the two at all. They look at each other and give each other a nod as Carlito and Chris Masters are seen sitting on the outside looking incredibly angry at the fact they have suffered a defeat at Cyber Sunday tonight. The screen fades as we go to more WWE.com adverts.



    Backstage Interviewer – Byron Saxton:
    Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time, he is the number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship and will challenge Sheamus for the title next, the American Dragon, DANIEL BRYAN!

    The WWE Universe pops loudly as Daniel Bryan enters the shot in his customary maroon wrestling attire with merchandise t-shirt on looking as focused as ever just moments away from a huge opportunity to win the World Heavyweight Championship.

    Backstage Interviewer – Byron Saxton:
    Daniel in just moments you will take on the leader of The Empire, Sheamus with the World Heavyweight Championship on the line. The WWE fans have been voting all week long for the type of match it will be. It will either be a Submission match, Falls Count Anywhere match or Tables match. Do you have any preference and are you concerned about the numbers game being a factor with Finlay, Drew McIntyre and Paul Burchill playing a role?

    The American Dragon – Daniel Bryan:
    I have scratched and clawed my way to the top on SmackDown to earn myself a World Heavyweight Championship opportunity. I have wrestled all over the world in all of these matches before so whatever the stipulation is fine by me. I will make Sheamus tap out, I will pin him anywhere in this building or I will happily put him through a table to reach the pinnacle of this industry. As for Finlay, Drew McIntyre and Paul Burchill who have constantly been sticking their noses into my business, let’s just say I have a plan and tonight I will walk out of Cyber Sunday as the NEW World Heavyweight Champion!

    With that Daniel Bryan walks off the interview set and looks extremely confident ahead of the match.



    Mathews:
    Daniel Bryan is in confident mood as he is about to challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship here tonight and he seems to have a plan to combat the other members of The Empire. This may be the first time we have seen Sheamus have to defend his title in a fair fight Matt. I think the American Dragon may well walk out of Cyber Sunday as our new World Heavyweight Champion as a result.
    Striker:
    Josh how dare you. Sheamus is the Celtic Warrior and the man who single-handedly makes The Empire the effective unit that it is today. The World Heavyweight Champion goes into this contest with Daniel Bryan as the favourite with or without his stable mates alongside him. I do think he has one thing to worry about though. If the fans have voted for a Submission match he is up against it because we know how effective the LeBell Lock is.
    Mathews:
    Well we are about to find out as it is time to find out what the match stipulation will be so let’s send it backstage to none other than Todd Grisham. Great job tonight by the way Todd!

    Cyber Sunday host – Todd Grisham:
    Thank you Josh and it is time for the first of our two main events as you say. The World Heavyweight Champion, Sheamus will defend the gold against the American Dragon, Daniel Bryan. But what sort of match will it be? Have the WWE Universe voted for a Submission match? Will it be Falls Count Anywhere? Or will we see none other than a Tables match? The votes have been counted and independently verified and it will be…

    Ring Announcer – Tony Chimel:
    The following contest is a Falls Count Anywhere match and it is for the World Heavyweight Championship!


    ------------------Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes------------------

    The music of the challenger hits as the American Dragon, Daniel Bryan bursts through the crowd and the Target Center erupts for the number one contender. Bryan makes his usual entrance sidestepping his way down the ramp and entering the ring. He poses on the top rope as the crowd cheer him and he leads the crowd in a Yes chant which is beginning to take off. Bryan gets in the ring and tests the ropes a few times before the atmosphere dramatically changes.

    ------------------It's a shame for they, lost their head------------------

    The leader of The Empire and current World Heavyweight Champion, Sheamus comes out to the ring flanked by Drew McIntyre, Finlay and Paul Burchill. The crowd boo loudly as they immediately realise the numbers game is going to be against Daniel Bryan here tonight. But Sheamus speaks to his Empire cohorts and tells them to stay in the back, clearly confident he can beat the American Dragon all by himself. Sheamus poses with the World Heavyweight Championship in the ring before glaring at Daniel Bryan as the referee raises the title to signal it is on the line. The bell rings and the SmackDown main event is underway.

    The match starts with Sheamus and Daniel Bryan locking up and The Empire leader trying to impose his superior power pushing the challenger back into the turnbuckle. He smirks as the referee tells him to step back and he goes for a cheap shot just as you’d expect. Bryan is wise to it though and ducks underneath leaving Sheamus in the turnbuckle as he delivers a big kick to the gut of the Irishman. The shot echoes throughout the arena as the Celtic Warrior looks stunned at Bryan getting on top so quickly as he looks to defend the World Heavyweight Championship. Bryan looks angry and it is clear Sheamus has a fight on his hands as the two lock up again in the middle of the ring. This time Bryan remarkably grounds Sheamus by putting torque on his arm as the two do some chain wrestling. It is a new side of the Celtic Warrior we haven’t seen either but Bryan shows his superiority as he kips up and delivers another big kick to the gut of the champion.

    Sheamus again looks irritated and angry with Bryan who signals he will become the World Heavyweight Champion for the first time here tonight at Cyber Sunday. This time he isn’t playing around as he goes after Bryan and tries to hammer away at the challenger but the speed of the American Dragon is proving too much. Bryan is playing the stick and move game and gets a number of kicks to the knees of Sheamus who is getting more and more irate at what is happening so far in the bout. Sheamus does eventually get hold of Bryan and thinks he has thrown him to the outside, but Bryan shows some excellent balance in staying on the apron to the delight of the WWE Universe. Sheamus sprints at Bryan but is met with a knee to the head as he goes for a shoulder thrust. The Celtic Warrior is rocked and stumbles back towards the middle of the ring as Bryan takes him down with a SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK. Bryan with the first pin of the match; 1…… Sheamus kicks out emphatically.

    Bryan quickly locks in a leg lock on the right knee of Sheamus to keep the World Heavyweight Champion grounded for as long as he can. This is good strategy from the American Dragon as he senses if he can take the Irishman’s Brogue Kick out of his arsenal then he will have a major advantage. Bryan stomps away at the knee joint before Sheamus tries to swat him off. He is successful but Bryan relentlessly goes back again to the leg as he twists it and drops his knee on the back of the leg. The Celtic Warrior looks angry and swats Bryan away again. This time the leader of The Empire gets on top as he delivers some huge EUROPEAN UPPERCUTS and throws the challenger to the outside. Remember this is a Falls Count Anywhere match so the referee follows Sheamus as he joins Bryan on the outside. The Celtic Warrior picks Bryan up over his shoulder and throws him like a dart into the ring post. The sounds is sickening as Bryan’s body flops to the ground with a thud.

    The World Heavyweight Champion is in complete control and he spends some time walking around the ring looking underneath but opts to take the steel steps apart instead. He puts the bottom base between the entrance ramp and the ring apron in the centre before going right round to the other side of the ring near the announce tables where Bryan is recovering. What he hasn’t seen is the American Dragon grabbing a Kendo Stick in the process. As Sheamus goes to pick Bryan up he is met with a huge shot to the ribs from Bryan as the crowd pop huge for the sound of Kendo Stick on flesh. Bryan turns into a man possessed as he swings wildly with the weapon as Sheamus tries to evade the shots. Bryan must have hit Sheamus seven or eight times as welts start coming up on the chest and back of the World Heavyweight Champion. Bryan takes a wild swing at the right knee of Sheamus now which puts him down to his knees and the challenger follows it up with a huge ROUNDHOUSE KICK to the side of the head. Bryan covers on the outside of the ring; 1…… 2…… Sheamus kicks out!

    The crowd cheer loudly as Bryan gets to his feet and is clearly in the ascendancy in the match. Bryan gets onto the ring apron and waits for Sheamus to get back to his feet and as he slowly turns around the challenger launches himself and delivers the running knee as the Celtic Warrior ends up flying over the barricade wall and into the crowd! The fans know what is coming and that chaos is about to ensue in this Falls Count Anywhere match. Bryan wastes no time in joining Sheamus in the crowd as he leaps from the barricade wall and takes him out with a dive. Sheamus falls back as they are on the hard camera side in the back corner towards the timekeeper’s area. Bryan mounts Sheamus and delivers a number of forearms to the side of his head before hooking the leg again. Once more the World Heavyweight Champion kicks out though. Bryan sees a trash can and empties it before Sheamus is back to his feet once again. Bryan tries to hit the Celtic Warrior ducks under and as Bryan turns around he is met with a huge CLOTHESLINE as the trash can goes flying.

    The World Heavyweight Champion quickly retrieves the item and you can see his mind whirring as he has a plan of action to inflict damage to Bryan. Sheamus hoists the challenger onto his shoulders and the crowd have gone eerily quiet as they sense something big might be on the way. Sheamus runs towards the trash can and then leaps forward delivering the ROLLING FIREMAN’S CARRY SENTON! The sound of Bryan’s body on the can echoes throughout the arena and the item is completely destroyed. Sheamus hooks the leg; 1……… 2……… Bryan shows resilience in getting the shoulder up as he refuses to be beaten with the World Heavyweight Championship on the line. Sheamus quickly refocuses and hauls Bryan up to his feet as the two make their way through the crowd and are where all the tech equipment is setup to control pyro and lighting for the event. Sheamus bounced Bryan’s head off some of the equipment and is definitely in control now.

    The leader of The Empire spots a table with equipment on it and quickly gets rid of it all off the top as he feels an opportunity may be in the offing. The World Heavyweight Champion gets Bryan in position for the CELTIC CROSS! Bryan manages to evade the move and falls from Sheamus’ grip before he connects with a huge ROUNDHOUSE KICK to the head of the Celtic Warrior which drops him to the floor in a heap. The American Dragon opts against pinning though and has something else in mind. Bryan slowly drags Sheamus to the table that was meant to be used against him and places him on top of it as the crowd cheer loudly. Bryan is concerned his opponent may get up before he can execute what he has planned so he goes to grab a Steel Chair which is by where the two of them are and delivers a big shot to the back of Sheamus as he is laying front down on the wood. Bryan drops the chair and starts climbing the stands where the WWE Universe are sitting in the area!

    The fans get louder and louder as Bryan looks ready to do some serious damage to the World Heavyweight Champion. He stands up perched on top of a railing about 15 feet in the air and points his hands in the air shouting yes before leaping. Bryan destroys Sheamus, himself and the table with a huge SPLASH from high up. The WWE Universe pop loudly as they sense they may be about to crown a new World Heavyweight Champion! Bryan is spent though and it takes him a significant period of time to gather himself and drape an arm across Sheamus for the pin attempt; 1………… 2………… The leader of The Empire refuses to lose his title and gets the shoulder up just in the nick of time much to the disappointment of the Target Center. Both men are exhausted now as they lay in the crowd and the referee checks on both of them. Eventually both Bryan and Sheamus get to their feet as the battle for the World Heavyweight Championship rages on.

    The two throw right hands at one another before Sheamus gets the upperhand with a big knee to the gut of the American Dragon. The two are now at the stage as the Celtic Warrior gets Bryan on his shoulders and tosses him onto it before leaping up and joining his challenger. Sheamus mounts Bryan and hammers away repeatedly before lifting him up once more. The World Heavyweight Champion calls for WHITE NOISE on the stage! Sheamus has Bryan in position but thankfully the American Dragon reverses and rolls up the Irishman; 1…………… 2…………… Sheamus just kicks out. That was a close call for the World Heavyweight Champion as he goes to kick Bryan but the American Dragon blocks and connects with a lightning fast STEP-UP ENZUIGIRI. Sheamus’ body collapses once again but instead of going for the pin the challenger locks in the LEBELL LOCK!!! The submission hold is locked in tight and we could be about to crown a new champion!

    Before Sheamus taps out though the other members of The Empire sprint out from the back with Drew McIntyre, Finlay and Paul Burchill all grabbing Bryan off Sheamus. Burchill throws Bryan into the Cyber Sunday set as the crowd boo loudly. Finlay and Drew McIntyre help Sheamus to his feet and check the World Heavyweight Champion is okay. They all turn their attention to Bryan now as he looks at all four and smirks. Josh Mathews and Matt Striker question why the American Dragon is smiling but it soon becomes clear as Cody Rhodes and Goldust make their way out to stand alongside Bryan and although they are still a man down the odds look a lot better for the challenger. The brawl is on as The Empire, Bryan, Cody Rhodes and Goldust all go at it at the top of the stage but the numbers look to be overwhelming the American Dragon and his friends. That is until someone else comes out from the back with a balaclava on! The Empire suddenly look hesitant as do Bryan, Rhodes and Goldust.

    The masked man has a steel chair with him as well and he nails Finlay with the weapon before going after Paul Burchill as the tide turns and suddenly The Empire are on the backfoot for the first time in months at Cyber Sunday! Cody Rhodes and Goldust brawl with Drew McIntyre and Finlay as they end up off the stage and fight to the back as the masked man catches a running Burchill with a SNAP SCOOP POWERSLAM on the stage! The sound is sickening as he picks up Burchill, throws him into the set and two end up fighting in the opposite direction to the back. That leaves us with Daniel Bryan and Sheamus one-on-one for the World Heavyweight Championship as the crowd go absolutely crazy knowing this is a massive opportunity for the American Dragon. The Minneapolis crowd are willing Bryan on as he looks to capture the title for the first time in his career so far. Bryan and Sheamus are both on their feet halfway down the ramp.

    We’re into the deep waters of the match and the power of Sheamus starts to come to the fore as he simply hurls Bryan into the barricade with the fans lining the ramp. He continues to hammer away at Bryan before getting him in position for a SUPLEX ON THE RAMP. Bryan resists as much as he can and ends up landing on his feet as the Celtic Warrior turns around and is met with a big kick to the gut. Bryan has some ideas of his own as he gets Sheamus in position for a SUPLEX of his own but the World Heavyweight Champion is having none of it. The leader of The Empire gets out of the predicament easily as he takes Bryan down with a SHORT-ARM CLOTHESLINE. The body of Bryan thuds on the ramp but Sheamus isn’t done there as he quickly gets the American Dragon in position and nails him hard with the WHITE NOISE!!! The move connects on the diamond plate as Sheamus hooks both legs and thinks he has done enough to retain the title. 1……………… 2……………… Daniel Bryan somehow gets the shoulder up!

    Sheamus cannot believe it and is angry with the referee who insists it was a two count only. The World Heavyweight Champion gets the challenger to his feet and drags him over to the base of the steel steps which are still between the ring apron and the ramp. The Irishman gets Bryan up again in position for the WHITE NOISE as he walks with his body onto the steps and looks to connect. The American Dragon escapes brilliantly and traps Sheamus’ leg which takes him down. Bryan brilliantly transitions into the LEBELL LOCK!!! Bryan has the submission locked in between the steps and the ring apron and pulls back on the arm and head of Sheamus as the crowd cheer loudly thinking this could be the moment the leader of The Empire taps out! Unseen by Bryan though, Sheamus has managed to grab something from under the ring and breaks the hold as he nails the American Dragon in the head with a LEAD PIPE!!! The hold is broken emphatically.

    The crowd boo loudly as Bryan looks to be completely out of it but Sheamus isn’t moving much either clearly feeling the effects of the deadly submission used by the challenger. Slowly, the Celtic Warrior gets to his feet and gets Bryan up before pushing his beaten body into the ring. The World Heavyweight Champion enters as well with the lead pipe in hand. The WWE Universe are concerned at what Sheamus may have planned for Bryan as he slowly gets to his feet but ducks the weapon being swung by the champion. Sheamus tries again but this time the American Dragon goes behind and hits an unbelievable SNAP GERMAN SUPLEX!!! Bryan is feeling it and has somehow gained some energy from somewhere. Bryan sprints at Sheamus when he gets back to his feet and connects with the RUNNING KNEE!!! This has to be it! 1………………… 2………………… Sheamus somehow gets his shoulder off the mat and the match continues!

    Bryan cannot believe it stands in the corner again waiting for Sheamus to get up to his feet as he clearly plans on connecting with the same manoeuvre again. Bryan takes off but the World Heavyweight Champion shows some incredible power in catching the American Dragon and slamming him hard down to the mat. Sheamus slowly lifts Bryan up and places him on the ring apron facing away up the ramp. The Celtic Warrior obliterates the challenger’s chest with the BEATS OF THE BODHRAN! Bryan takes five before he elbows the leader of The Empire who staggers back. Bryan turns around but is met with a thunderous BROGUE KICK!!! Sheamus connects flush in the face as Bryan falls from the ring apron back first onto the base of the steel steps in what looked like a horrific bump. Sheamus even gasps at looking at what just happened as he goes to the outside and covers Bryan. 1………………… 2………………… 3! Sheamus retains the World Heavyweight Championship in dramatic fashion.

    Winner: Sheamus via pinfall after a Brogue Kick onto the Steel Steps to RETAIN the World Heavyweight Championship (20:55)


    Mathews:
    Sheamus has done it! The leader of The Empire has retained the World Heavyweight Championship in impressive fashion. But I am concerned for Daniel Bryan. His body just took the full force of them steel steps and the referee and officials now at ringside are clearly concerned. This was an all-out war and even once the odds were evened thanks to Cody Rhodes, Goldust and a masked man, Sheamus and The Empire hold onto the gold.
    Striker:
    What an incredible effort from the conqueror. He has done it again but even I have to give huge credit to Daniel Bryan for the heart he has just shown here tonight at Cyber Sunday. For his sake I really hope this is not as bad as it is looking right now. Sheamus can hardly stand but the Celtic Warrior shows his toughness yet again and he is still the World Heavyweight Champion. What a night this has been!
    Mathews:
    Whatever you think of The Empire, Sheamus proved tonight he can get the job done by himself but only after Drew McIntyre, Finlay and Paul Burchill tried to get involved again. Theodore Long has got to do something about the four of them. Meanwhile, this looks extremely worrying for Daniel Bryan as the stretcher is brought to ringside. Bryan is being put in a neck brace after that spine-rattling impact on the steps.

    Sheamus taunts with the World Heavyweight Championship at the top of the ramp but the crowd are not reacting as there is a hush at the scenes they are witnessing with Daniel Bryan. Medical staff and referees surround the American Dragon as he is tended to and slowly put on a stretcher. Sheamus is heard by the cameras at the top of the ramp saying he told everyone he would retain whatever the stipulation. The Celtic Warrior goes through the curtain to the back as we now fully focus on Bryan as he is slowly raised onto a stretcher and wheeled up the entrance ramp and to the back. The American Dragon raises his thumb to signal to the crowd he is okay which gets a huge pop before the screen fades and we go to a commercial for the next WWE pay per view.






    SURVIVOR SERIES 2020
    Sunday, November 21 – Who will survive?



    Cole:
    Survivor Series is indeed the next time we come live to you on pay per view and that is one of my favourite nights of the year! I’m sure we’ll see a Traditional Survivor Series Elimination match or two and I cannot wait to see what happens. But King we just witnessed some match between Sheamus and Daniel Bryan. I hope Bryan is okay and you can check WWE.com for the latest on his condition in a losing effort to the World Heavyweight Champion. But now it is time for the RAW main event!
    King:
    Oh you’re not wrong Cole. Cyber Sunday has been incredible and we are about to see something else which could steal the show as the WWE Champion, Jack Swagger defends the gold against Triple H. And don’t forget RAW Co-General Managers Vickie Guerrero and Trish Stratus could play a crucial role in this match as well. Vickie has been crucial in helping Swagger retain the title at every turn so far and you can bet she’ll do everything in her power again.
    Cole:
    Well let’s hope for everyone’s sake Trish Stratus has something to say about that. Last month at Night of Champions, Swagger made Triple H tap out but can he do it again here tonight at Cyber Sunday? Let’s send it to the ring and Justin Roberts for the ring introductions for the main event of the evening with the WWE Championship on the line.

    Ring Announcer – Justin Roberts:
    The following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is for the WWE CHAMPIONSHIP!



    ------------------Time to play The Game------------------

    The WWE Universe explode as the guitar riffs of the opening to Triple H’s entrance theme plays and The Game makes his way into the Target Center. Triple H is wearing black trunks with white boots and looks more focuses than perhaps ever before. The Cerebral Assassin slowly walks down the ring with green lighting throughout the arena. Triple H slowly gets onto the ring apron and has a swig of water before throwing it into the crowd and doing his usual entrance spitting water into the air which gets a massive reaction. The Game signals he will become the new WWE Champion as he stands in the middle of the ring and waits for his opponent to make his entrance.



    ------------------Check one two, aw yeah!------------------

    Here comes the WWE Champion! The All American American, Jack Swagger slowly and methodically walks out on stage with the title wrapped around his waist before he looks over his shoulder. Out comes none other than RAW Co-General Manager, Vickie Guerrero who raises Swagger’s hand at the top of the stage to a chorus of boos. Swagger walks confidently down the ramp as Triple H’s face turns to rage in the ring. Swagger gets in and holds the WWE Championship aloft before kissing it and handing it to senior referee Mike Chioda. Vickie Guerrero stands on the outside as Swagger says something to her before the bell rings and the main event is on!


    Jack Swagger © vs. Triple H

    The match starts as Triple H goes straight after Jack Swagger with a number of big right hands and the challenger is angry and agitated and he plans on letting it known to his opponent and Vickie Guerrero on the outside. The Game continues to hammer away and clotheslines Swagger to the mat before Irish whipping him into the turnbuckle and delivering another huge clothesline. Triple H chops and punches, chops and punches until the official pulls the challenger off of the champion who simply cannot get out of the blocks in the early going here. The crowd cheer loudly at seeing The Game on top and it is clear who they want to succeed here tonight at Cyber Sunday. They want the King of Kings to go back on his throne for the 14th time. Triple H turns his attention back to Swagger and this time he clotheslines the All American American to the outside. The Game wastes no time in joining the WWE Champion on the outside either.

    Swagger begs for mercy as The Game is on the opposite side of the ring to RAW Co-General Manager, Vickie Guerrero to ensure she cannot get involved in any way. Triple H grabs Swagger and delivers some big body shots before he Irish whips him hard into the steel steps as they go flying at the impact made with the body of the WWE Champion. Swagger is audibly in pain as he clutches his left side of his body but Triple H does not give him a moment to breathe as he is straight on the champion knowing this is his moment to keep inflicting damage. The Game gets Swagger to his feet and now back drops the man from Oklahoma onto the barricade wall in what looks like a very painful spot which has Vickie Guerrero concerned as she screams and Triple H blows her a kiss to mock that she cannot do anything to help her client at the moment. The Game returns Swagger to the ring and looks to continue his onslaught as he seeks to become the new WWE Champion.

    Triple H stomps away at the fallen body of Swagger as he mounts him and continues to hammer away at the face of the WWE Champion as he looks to cover up. In the end, the referee once again intervenes and has to pretty much physically drag the Cerebral Assassin off his opponent. Triple H goes back to work on Swagger but this is the time for the All American American to get back into the match as he grabs Triple H by the trunks and throws him forcefully into the ropes. The Game goes neck first into the second ropes as he starts coughing and gasping for air after the impact. Swagger slowly gets to his feet after the early onslaught he has had to endure as The Game turns around and is met with a big clothesline much to the delight of Vickie Guerrero who applauds on the outside. Swagger nods and grabs Triple H instantly connecting with a SNAP SUPLEX. Swagger floats over and picks The Game up showing some incredible strength as he delivers a GUTWRENCH SUPLEX and goes for a cover; 1… 2… Triple H will not be beaten that easily.

    Swagger knows that and isn’t frustrated at all but he is back in the match and slows the pace right down as he uses his amateur background to keep Triple H off of a vertical base. The WWE Champion locks in a nice BODY SCISSORS to try and drive the air out of Triple H. He also has a canny technique as every time the referee is one side of The Game and is unsighted, he punches him in the kidney which look like really damaging shots. Swagger eventually relents and switches to the left leg of Triple H thinking if he can permanently ground the challenger, he will have a superb chance of retaining the WWE Title here in Minneapolis. With that in mind Swagger grabs the leg of Triple H and drives his knee right into the joint three times as the crowd boo loudly. Swagger looks at them defiantly as he switches his opponent onto his belly and lifts him by the leg, driving his left knee hard into the canvas. Triple H goes to hold the leg as the referee checks on him and stops Swagger from doing anything else for now.

    The WWE Champion doesn’t wait long though as he is quickly back on Triple H like a hyena finding scraps. Swagger lifts the challenger to his feet and goes behind him delivering a beautiful GERMAN SUPLEX with some extreme power as Triple H hurtles towards a turnbuckle and lands back and neck first on the hardest part of the mat. Swagger has something in mind as Vickie Guerrero tells him he will be WWE Champion when this is all said and done. Swagger goes to the outside and drags Triple H legs first towards the turnbuckle in a position which looks like he might pull him all the way into a low blow move. But Swagger doesn’t, and instead grabs the left leg and smashes it off the ring post! Triple H writhes around in agony but Swagger is not done as he does it a further three times. The WWE Champion knows he is in complete control now and argues back with Mike Chioda who tells him to get back in the ring to continue with the contest.

    Of course, Swagger ignores that warning and instead applies an incredible FIGURE FOUR LEG LOCK to Triple H as he uses the ropes for leverage! The Game screams in agony as Swagger has to release the hold before getting disqualified and slides back into the ring stalking the hurt Triple H who is desperately holding his left leg and trying to get some blood going back to the key muscles to help him in his quest to become WWE Champion again. Swagger is laughing at his opponent as he clearly thinks there is no way back for Triple H at the moment. The Game slowly gets to his feet and tells Swagger to come at him and he needs no introduction as he sprints towards Triple and takes him out with an incredible DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN. Triple H grabs his left leg again as Swagger smirks and hooks the leg thinking this may well be it; 1……… 2……… The Game gets his right foot on the bottom rope to avoid defeat in the main event of Cyber Sunday.

    Swagger is like a shark sensing blood as he sees the foot on the rope and he immediately launches himself high in the air using the bottom rope and crashes down across the damaged knee and leg of his opponent. The crowd boo loudly as Triple H is in a bad way and has serious problems with his mobility. Swagger drags Triple H into the centre of the ring and pins again; 1………… 2………… Triple H kicks out but it was like the WWE Champion expected as he lifts him up and tosses him across the ring with a beautifully executed BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX. The WWE Champion sees that the Game is in perfect position laying near the turnbuckle as he goes to the opposite one, sprints towards him, uses the ropes and goes for the SWAGGER BOMB! Triple H gets his good leg up though and kicks Swagger straight in the face as he falls like a sack of potatoes. The Game desperately pins; 1………… 2………… This time it is the WWE Champion who refuses to beaten.

    Triple H knows he must get back on top in the match now as he has the smallest of openings. He uses the ropes to help him to his feet as he looks at Swagger who slowly rises to a vertical base as well. The Game hammers away at Swagger but he is met with a kick to the left knee again which takes Triple H down to a knee. Swagger taunts and faces away from the challenger which proves to be a mistake as The Game takes his knee out with a CHOP BLOCK! Swagger squeals in pain as Triple H punches his left leg to try and get some more feeling into it and focuses on the WWE Champion. Swagger slowly rises but Triple H drops him again with two clotheslines followed by his trademark RUNNING KNEE with his strong leg but it takes him a lot and he can’t capitalise. Before he knows it, Swagger has taken him down with a BIG BOOT which hit flush in the face. Here’s the pinfall attempt; 1…………… 2…………… Triple H gets the shoulder up!

    Swagger is thoroughly enjoying himself and to be honest we haven’t seen the Cerebral Assassin dominated like this for years, if ever. The WWE Champion looks at The Game and clearly has something in mind as he looks to retain the title he captured by cashing in Money in the Bank a few months back. Swagger applies an ABDOMINAL STRETCH to his opponent and slows the pace down again, this time focusing on taking the air out of the sails of the challenger. The crowd start to get invested and will Triple H to break out of the hold and get a foothold in the match as this WWE Championship clash has been very one-sided so far. They end up getting there wish as somehow Triple H breaks out of the submission manoeuvre and plants Swagger in one fluid motion with his trademark SPINEBUSTER! Triple H doesn’t even have the energy to cover though. Instead he uses the time to try and get his breath back as Vickie Guerrero checks on her client and gives him some words of encouragement.

    Triple H is hopping around the ring but he grabs Swagger and Irish whips him hard into the turnbuckle. On the rebound he drops the WWE Champion with a BACK BODY DROP as the All American American is quick to get back to his feet again. The Game has some real momentum going and drops Swagger to the canvas with a nice NECKBREAKER for a near fall. Vickie Guerrero starts to look a little bit worried on the outside as Triple H has something going through his head. He waits for Swagger to get back up to his feet before hooking both arms and suddenly just like that looking for the PEDIGREE! Before he can leap, Swagger punches the left knee again as Triple H collapses and funds himself in the PATRIOT LOCK! Swagger has the ankle just like that! This was the submission that Triple H tapped out to last month at Night of Champions. The Game knows it though and quickly rolls through and grabs Swagger in the CROSSFACE!!! Triple H is trying to make the WWE Champion tap out this time as he uses the infamous Crossface.

    Swagger is writhing around the mat clearly worried about tapping out and waving his WWE Championship goodbye. The fans are going nuts inside the Target Center as they sense this could be it for the match. Swagger crawls towards the ropes slowly but Triple H gets up and drags him back to the middle of the ring as he re-applies the hold! The fans go up another level in the noise they are making as Triple H pulls back on the head, arm and neck of Swagger. It really looks like the All American American could tap out but instead he somehow turns it into a roll up! 1……………… 2……………… Triple H kicks out and is straight back to his feet as he kicks Swagger in the gut and uses every last bit of energy he can muster to deliver the PEDIGREE!!! Triple H has hit his finisher. Nobody gets up from this! Triple H hooks the leg; 1………………… 2………………… Vickie Guerrero grabs the referee by his leg and stops the count!!! The WWE Universe boo the RAW Co-General Manager like you have never heard before. They cannot believe what they have just seen.

    Vickie Guerrero defends her actions as Triple H looks around and tries to work out what has just happened with the WWE Championship on the line. He gets up and as Vickie Guerrero starts shouting abuse at the challenger, none other than TRISH STRATUS sprints down the aisle to confront the other RAW Co-General Manager. Trish grabs Vickie by the hair and throws her into the barricade wall! The crowd cheer loudly as the referee goes to the outside and tries to break the two authority figures up. Neither will be stopped though as they brawl up the ramp. Other officials and figures from the back come out on the stage to break them up but not before Trish is able to level Vickie with the CHICK KICK! Vickie Guerrero is out and motionless at the top of the stage. The crowd pop loudly as the one person willing to do anything to help Jack Swagger retain the WWE Championship is now out of the equation.

    Back in the ring and Triple H turns around to go back to work on Jack Swagger but the WWE Champion has recovered and gets The Game in a SCHOOL BOY! 1…………………… 2…………………… Triple H somehow kicks out despite being blindsided. Swagger isn’t done there though as he quickly connects with a big BASEMENT DROPKICK to the bad knee of the challenger who is incapacitated by the shot. Swagger lifts Triple H up and plants him hard with the GUTWRENCH POWERBOMB!!! Swagger hooks both legs as he looks to retain the WWE Championship. 1…………………… 2…………………… 3! Jack Swagger is still the WWE Champion after an utterly dominant display against Triple H at Cyber Sunday.

    Winner: Jack Swagger via pinfall after a Gutwrench Powerbomb to RETAIN the WWE Championship (18:33)


    Cole:
    Jack Swagger has done it! The All American American has retained the WWE Championship but there was a massive helping hand from none other than Vickie Guerrero. She is meant to be one of the Co-General Managers of Monday Night RAW, she simply cannot be getting involved like that and you can’t blame Trish Stratus for taking her head off with that brutal kick. Triple H should be the new WWE Champion right now damn it.
    King:
    I can’t really disagree Michael but once Trish and Vickie were out of the way Swagger was once again able to prove he simply has the number of Triple H. That Gutwrench Powerbomb is a thing of beauty and his tactics throughout the match were flawless. Swagger picked apart the left leg of The Game repeatedly and Triple H could hardly stand by the end. The WWE Champion has gone up in my estimation and he deserved to win that match.
    Cole:
    I take your point King but he doesn’t need the help of Vickie Guerrero at every turn to win and the quicker he realises that the better he can end up being. Nonetheless you are right, Jack Swagger is still the WWE Champion and it has been an incredible Cyber Sunday! Oh wait a minute!!!

    Jack Swagger is celebrating as he is handed the WWE Championship by senior referee Mike Chioda but before he can bask in his glory too much Triple H nails him from behind. Swagger ends up going through the middle rope and landing hard on the floor below. The Game slowly goes to the outside with his leg still a major issue and throws Swagger into the steel steps once again! The crowd are going nuts at witnessing Triple H get some revenge over the WWE Champion but he isn’t done there. The Cerebral Assassin takes apart the announce table and has bad intentions in mind. Triple H slowly puts the body of Swagger on the table and joins him as he taunts and says he should be the new WWE Champion. Triple H hooks both legs and nails the PEDIGREE onto the table which doesn’t collapse. Swagger’s body is limp as he goes face first and he looks anything but the winner. Triple H gets up and throws the carcass of Swagger into the ring as he gets back in and looks at the WWE Championship before throwing it on top of the forlorn All American American. Triple H gets out of the ring and slowly limps his way up the entrance ramp with the crowd cheering loudly before…

    Spoiler:



    The music of Chris Jericho hits the PA system as he levels Triple H with the Money in the Bank briefcase first on the back which sends him crashing down on the top of the entrance ramp. Jericho isn’t done there though as he nails the left leg of The Game repeatedly with the briefcase until he is satisfied there is no way Triple H is getting back up. Jericho now looks at his Money in the Bank briefcase and clearly has one thing in mind as he sprints down the ramp and slides in looking at the fallen Jack Swagger. Jericho grabs Mike Chioda and orders him to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase!!!

    Ring Announcer – Justin Roberts:
    Ladies and gentleman, Chris Jericho is cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase and the following contest is for the WWE CHAMPIONSHIP!


    Jack Swagger © vs. Chris Jericho

    Mike Chioda waits to sound the bell as he makes sure Jack Swagger is up on his feet and at least aware that the WWE Championship is on the line against Chris Jericho. The crowd have completely lost their shit at what they are witnessing and although Y2J is a heel they are simply cheering at the history they may be about to see. Finally, Swagger is up to his feet and the bell rings. Jericho sprints and throws himself towards Swagger delivering a monumental CODE BREAKER!!! Chris Jericho hooks the leg; 1………………………… 2………………………… 3! Chris Jericho cashes in Money in the Bank and is the new WWE Champion!!!
    Spoiler:

    Winner: Chris Jericho via pinfall after a Code Breaker to become the NEW WWE Champion after cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase (0:11)


    Cole:
    What have we just seen?! Chris Jericho has cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase and is the NEW WWE Champion!!! He waited for the perfect moment and has walked away with the gold. Triple H had taken out Jack Swagger on the announce table and Jericho took advantage by nailing the Game with the briefcase before picking the bones. Like so many before him Jericho has seized the opportunity and has walked out a five-time WWE Champion!
    King:
    What an incredible moment we have just witnessed. Listen to this place. It is rocking in he Target Center as Chris Jericho becomes the new WWE Champion. I was expecting a lot of surprises tonight, but I certainly was not expecting Y2J walking out as the WWE Champion. Jack Swagger’s run comes to an end and it must be said it was going to take something like this for him to lose that title. Incredible!
    Cole:
    What a night it has been and what a way to cap off an unbelievable Cyber Sunday. Listen to this place as Chris Jericho stands on the second rope and holds the WWE Championship aloft. The landscape of RAW has just totally changed for sure. Make sure you join us tomorrow night for all the fallout. Goodnight everyone from Cyber Sunday!

    In the ring Chris Jericho celebrates winning the WWE Championship in shocking fashion with the Target Center all popping for Y2J because of the dramatic way he just managed to win the gold. Triple H is still motionless on the ramp and receiving medical attention while Jack Swagger is in the ring and sitting there staring a whole through Jericho as he cannot believe he has just lost the title in the manner he has. The final picture of Cyber Sunday is Chris Jericho standing at the bottom of the ramp smirking and holding the WWE Championship high in the air as the screen fades.
