    Re: Miracle: The Cesaro Story by TWG

    On my way to WWE HQ in Stamford, I decided to check the response on Twitter following my tweet and this morning I saw that David Otunga posted a video response to my tweet.

    Quote Originally Posted by @DavidOtunga

This allows us to see that Otunga is in a busy gym, with Otunga dressed for the occasion in a grey vest top and black shorts, and a group of men have surrounded him as some weights are on their floor. Otunga bumps fists with his friends and bends down to pick up the weights.

    David Otunga:
    Strongman, huh?

    Otunga easily cleans the weights and holds them up in place, barely breaking a sweat.

    David Otunga:
    'The Swiss Superman'?

    The jerk goes up and Otunga holds the barbell above his head and then drops it straight onto the floor. His friends cheer and he looks at the camera and laughs, flexing his bicep out.

    David Otunga:
    That's cute.

    He walks towards the camera and grabs it, smiling down the lens.

    David Otunga:
    See you tomorrow night.

    Before he ends the video, Otunga reaches down and picks up his coffee flask and takes a sip before the screen goes black.
    I'm not even going to respond to that. Although I'm sure Michael Cole is going to bring it up in this interview. This is the first time that I've been to the WWE Headquarters, it was surprising that I wasn't asked here before I signed my contract or when it was decided I was going to be fined for missing that flight.

    Cole greets me once I've been through make up (pointlessly) and I have been escorted to the interview set, usually reserved for interviews with people like John Laurinaitis or Vince McMahon when an announcement is being made. He tells me that he's just going to ask a few questions about tomorrow night and what I think about my first month here.

    Some producers approach us and give us a sixty-second warning, so it is go-time!



    The feed opens up to see MICHAEL COLE and CESARO sitting in two chairs with a table with two glasses of water in between them in front of a backdrop with the Extreme Rules poster. Cole leans in and waves awkwardly to the camera, smiling.

    Michael Cole: Hello, WWE Universe. My name is Michael Cole and I am joined by 'The Swiss Superman' Cesaro and welcome to WWE Headquarters here in Stamford, Connecticut live on wwe.com and Youtube!

    Cole turns to Cesaro on his left and extends his hand to him.

    Michael Cole: Cesaro, welcome. Thank you for joining all of us at this time, taking time out from preparing for your Steel Cage Match with David Otunga tomorrow night at Extreme Rules in Chicago.

    Cesaro: Thank you for the invitation, Michael. It is a pleasure to be asked on and to be here.

    The two politely nod at each other and Cole motions down to Cesaro's feet.

    Michael Cole: I suppose I should ask about your ankle before we properly begin. It holding up okay?

    Cesaro reaches down and pulls up his trouser leg to show that he's no longer sporting bandaging over his ankle, and he smiles as he replies.

    Cesaro: The ankle's doing great, thank you Michael. The medical guys were great; they gave me a resting plan and told me to take it easy on Smackdown which I managed to do. I'm as good as one hundred percent and it shouldn't cause me any problems tomorrow night.

    Michael Cole: That's great news! Now, we should get down to business and talk about David Otunga. Since you made your debut a month ago, you made it clear that you're in the WWE to test yourself against the best competitors in the world. As Assistant to the General Manager, David Otunga has a say in the matches we see each week on Raw and Smackdown and you weren't happy that you weren't getting the opportunity to showcase your skills and if you were, it wasn't against the level of competition you were expecting. I take it that accurately sums up your motivation for pushing for this match with David Otunga?

    Cesaro: That hits the nail on the head, Michael. For anyone who has seen my work before I came into the WWE knows what I am capable of and the level of competition and ability that I can bring to the table. I'm here to test myself to improve myself. I can't do that if I'm going out there and beating someone in a couple of minutes, if that. That isn't a test for me, so I can't improve as a competitor. What was it, eight seconds I beat Heath Slater in? I didn't prove anything in that match.

    Cole nods along, seeing where Cesaro is coming from.

    Cesaro: That was a match orchestrated by David Otunga, because he thought me asking for some real competition was disrespecting him. He put me in that match to show that he could hold me down and stall my career if he wants to. I've never allowed anyone to hold me down and I was not going to let David Otunga be the first. That's why I decided to go after him and get this match. He needs to see first hand what I can do, and then I know he will understand that I should be getting better than I have been.

    Michael Cole: It's been quite a journey to see you earn this match with Otunga, with a new twist in the tale each week, it seemed. What are your thoughts on what has been a tumultuous few weeks working to get to where you are now ahead of tomorrow night?

    Cesaro: It's been a tough few weeks, I'll admit that. Whilst the competition in the ring wasn't that difficult, it was the sneak attacks and brawls outside the O2 Arena and blackmail which I have made it through on the way that makes me feel like I have earned this.

    Michael Cole: If you don't mind, we will come back to that Friday night in the O2 in a moment, as well as your fine from that week-

    Cesaro: If you don't mind, Michael, I'd like to get that out of the way now.

    Michael Cole: Of course. Please, go ahead.

    Cesaro: Missing that flight, which I think we all know I did on purpose and fighting my way into the arena that night was my way of showing how serious I am about my career here in the WWE. Otunga was trying to send me back around the world to stop me being on the show and I wasn't going to take that lying down. I accepted my fine because I was in the wrong. Now David Otunga will have to accept what he has coming to him inside the steel cage at Extreme Rules.

    Michael Cole: Which brings me to the question I was about to ask you. Cesaro, you selected one of the most barbaric structures in existence for your match tomorrow night. We have seen careers shortened inside the steel cage. Why did you choose this match, knowing the impact it could have on your career, so soon into it?

    Cesaro: I fully accept the risk that my career could end tomorrow night. You fall from the top of that cage wrong and your career can be over, if worse. I understand that but the fact that careers could end but that isn't why I chose this match type. I don't want to end David Otunga's in ring career, not in the slightest.

    Cole raises his eyebrows as Cesaro's honesty.

    Cesaro: David has shown that he's not afraid to get others involved and that's not what I want to happen tomorrow night. I know that the cage is designed to keep us inside, but it also has a use for keeping others out. For David Otunga to truly get the message that I'm trying to send, it needs to be just me and him. No one else.

    Michael Cole: So you're saying that you aren't going to use the cage as a weapon?

    Cole's question has a hint of cheekiness to it and Cesaro chuckles and straightens himself up.

    Cesaro: I wasn't. But after watching that video he just tweeted me with that stupid coffee flask? I think that I've reconsidered.

    Michael Cole: I won't repeat what you said you'd do with that flask on Raw.

    They share a laugh, before Cole exhales and narrows his brow a little.

    Michael Cole: To ask you about your future plans, Cesaro. You defeat David Otunga tomorrow night, then what? Where do you go from there?

    Cesaro: I move on to better competition, Michael. The door will be unlocked and I will be able to progress with my career and improve as a competitor like how I set out to do. Whether that takes me into the path of being a champion here in the WWE remains to be seen, but hopefully it does.

    Michael Cole: It is funny that you mention championships, actually. I remember Jerry 'The King' Lawler and I discussing a couple of weeks back during one of the matches where you teamed with Ryback, how we would enjoy seeing the two of you making a run for the WWE Tag Team Championships.

    Cesaro: Here's the thing about that. Ryback and I have discussed this, so I am not saying anything out of place now. We have agreed that we want to build our own careers as singles competitors before anything like that can happen. You can't become United States Champion as a tag team, or WWE Champion, or Intercontinental Champion. Those are the kind of targets that we have individually set ourselves and we can't do that if we are focusing on forming a tag team. We understand that that might disappoint some people but I think it is better that the record is set straight to not get people's hopes up.

    There is actually a slight look of disappointment in Cole's face, but he nods understandingly.

    Michael Cole: Unfortunately we are fast approaching the end of our allotted time, but I was hoping to ask your opinions on some of the other matches we're set to see tomorrow night and maybe get your predictions? Would you be willing to do that for us?

    Cesaro: Gladly, please.

    Michael Cole: Well, whilst we are on the subject of Ryback, are you in a position to tell us if he has found himself a partner for his match tomorrow night against Jack Swagger and Dolph Ziggler?

    Cesaro: I can't tell you who his partner is because when I spoke to him last night he still had not found one. Of course, when I say it like that it sounds like he's looking for one, which he isn't. He knows he can do this by himself, and so do I.

    Michael Cole: Okay, how about Santino Marella and The Miz for the United States Championship?

    Cesaro: Santino is one of the guys who I get on with the best on the whole roster so far and I enjoyed teaming up with him last night on Smackdown so I hope that he's able to retain. Although if The Miz does somehow win I have an idea of which championship I'll be going after!

    Michael Cole: I hope that he's watching, so he knows! The WWE Championship - CM Punk defending against Chris Jericho in a Chicago Street Fight. Who is your money on there?

    Cesaro: I've known CM Punk for a long time. Long before either of us were here in the WWE and I have had the pleasure of wrestling him on multiple occasions. I'd even say that he's a friend of mine. One thing I know about CM Punk is that you don't go after his family like Chris Jericho has done. Jericho is someone who's in ring ability I respect more than most people but he's acted like a jackass and a coward in going after Punk's family and his beliefs. There is nothing I want more than to see CM Punk beat the living crap out of him tomorrow night and keep him away from the WWE Championship because Chris Jericho doesn't deserve to be anywhere near it for his recent actions.

    Michael Cole: And finally, I have to ask you... John Cena or 'The Beast' Brock Lesnar?

    Cesaro: John Cena.

    Cole looks a momentarily baffled by the sudden short answer, but Cesaro doesn't look like he has anything else to add, so Cole turns to the camera.

    Michael Cole: We have heard what Cesaro has to say about Extreme Rules and his eventful first few weeks in the WWE, so all that is left for me to do it wish you the best of luck for your match tomorrow night....

    He extends his hand and Cesaro shakes it, smiling.

    Cesaro: Thank you, Michael.

    Michael Cole: So thank you to Cesaro for being my guest this morning and to all of you who have joined us on wwe.com and Youtube and I will see you all again tomorrow night on the most extreme night of the year, at Extreme Rules!

    The camera zooms out and pans up to the WWE logo suspended above Cole and Cesaro before the feed ends.

    Re: Miracle: The Cesaro Story by TWG

    I've just caught up on Cesaro's journey so far, and I love the way things have progressed. Otunga is the perfect foil for Cesaro to get over with the fans, and I can't commend you enough for that booking. Things really picked up with the London incidents and the Gauntlet match.

    :lmao at Otunga's video as well.

    Cesaro's sit down interview was great to get him a little more exposure. The predictions aspect was interesting, especially with Cesaro writing off Lesnar so quickly. Future feud PLEASE!!!

    You're booking Cesaro's journey incredibly well so far. This is one of my favourite threads in the section at the moment, can't wait for Extreme Rules.

    Thanks again for the kind comments, I appreciate the feedback.

    We might be looking a long way down the line for THAT particular feud but one thing I have decided about this thread is that I'm keeping an open mind to it and keeping doors open to potential feuds for Cesaro. I have his next one locked in but after that plans can change.

    The interview did a lot to make Cesaro relatable and further push this rivalry with Otunga, who also looks like a million bucks. More so than he ever did in real life.

    Thanks for the feedback mate, it is much appreciated. I've always thought Otunga has a lot more in him than he ever showed when he was an active wrestler, and even as an authority figure, so I've tried to bring this out in this project.

    Anyone wishing to make predictions can do so until Saturday!

    Re: Miracle: The Cesaro Story by TWG

    Just caught all up to date with this TWG and I have to say I'm still impressed and see a BTBOTM award on the horizon if you can keep this going no doubt. I enjoyed Cesaro running the gauntlet and the story you told with him hurting his ankle and having to overcome injury to get what he wants. The 6-man tag on SmackDown worked well in hyping the match but the realy highlight was the interview with Cole for me. I thought Cesaro came across really well and I'm intrigued to see who he feuds with next. The shots at Jericho and him predicting Cena over Lesnar could be red herrings but I'd be down for a feud later down the line between them. That Otunga video in the gym as well

    EXTREME RULES
    APRIL 29 2012
    ALLSTATE ARENA – ROSEMONT, ILLINOIS


    Pre Show Match:
    United States Championship:

    The Miz def. Santino Marella © in 5:00 to win the United States Championship, making Santino submit with the Figure Four Leg Lock which he debuted against Cesaro on Raw.


    Falls Count Anywhere:
    Randy Orton def. Kane in 13:45, following an RKO onto a steel chair.

    Tag Team Match:
    Ryback & Brodus Clay def. Dolph Ziggler & Jack Swagger in 4:17, after Ryback pinned Ziggler following a Shellshocked. Ryback appeared to not have found himself a partner and was going to compete by himself in a Handicap Match, but Brodus Clay returned to be his partner after being taken out by Ziggler and Swagger three weeks ago.

    Tables Match:
    Intercontinental Championship:
    Cody Rhodes def. Big Show © in 4:37 to win the Intercontinental Championship, after Big Show accidentally stepped through a table.

    2-out-of-3 Falls Match:
    World Heavyweight Championship:

    Sheamus © def. Daniel Bryan 2-1 in 22:55 to retain the World Heavyweight Championship, following a Brogue Kick to win the deciding fall.




    I found out when I got to the arena that my match with Otunga was going to be in between the two World Title matches. This spot is usually reserved for a throwaway match and the crowd will usually go for a bathroom break at this time. It is clear that Otunga and Laurinaitis want as few people as possible to watch what is going to happen inside that cage tonight. Well, the joke is on them. I’m going to drag this match out for as long as I need to and until I am satisfied that Otunga is sorry for what he has done and that he has had enough respect beaten into him.

    He may have done his little video package on Twitter to show that he’s ready for me, but I know that I’m not alone in thinking that he’s petrified of what is going to happen out there and that he’s been trying as hard as he can to weedle his way out of it. If he was that confident he’d have been on Smackdown. Well, we are in the ‘Era of People Power’, and the people spoke when they said that they wanted me to get him in the ring.

    I’ve been warming up and got a chance to watch the show so far from the locker room. I was impressed with the match that’s just finished between Sheamus and Daniel Bryan. I know Daniel well from our time before the WWE and I’d love the opportunity to get into the ring with Sheamus, especially if the World Heavyweight Championship will be up for grabs!

    It was disappointing to see The Miz beat Santino for the title. I don’t know Santino that well but we’ve had each other’s backs and I know that the US Title was his world. Although, it was great to see Ryback out there tearing Ziggler and Swagger apart. I caught up with him after his match and he had no clue that Brodus Clay was going to be his partner and he even admitted that he wanted it to be a Handicap Match! That would have turned some heads for sure. He actually seemed pretty pissed off about Clay being there, and said that he was reluctant to even tag him in at a couple of points in the match.

    I’ve just got the call to head out to the Gorilla position, and a couple of the guys shout some support as I make my way down there. I can hear the music start and it is go-time!



    The camera’s focus starts shifting to the cage which has been suspended above the ring all night so far, and the lights slowly dim down and spotlights start darting around the arena. The ominous ‘cage lowering’ music starts to play through the arena sound systems and the fans cheer as a result.

    Michael Cole:
    I know that you’re all probably still recovering from that scintillating World Heavyweight Championship Match between Sheamus and Daniel Bryan, but we have another encounter coming up for you know and it is going to be a tale of revenge, contested inside a sixteen-foot high steel cage!

    The cage finally descends down onto the ring apron and a number of ringside personnel are rapidly fastening the structure to the ring apron as the lighting returns to normal momentarily and the music ceases.

    ***MIRACLE***

    There is an instantaneous loud cheer from the pumped up Illinoisans, as CESARO steps through the curtain and surveys the arena full of fans, soaking in his first WWE Pay-Per-View appearance. The bandaging over his ankle that he was sporting on Smackdown has gone, and he even shakes his foot out to show that he’s recovered well. After this, he starts firing out from his shoulder cannons, and a majority of 18,000+ members of the WWE Universe join him in doing so. He sets about making his way down to the ring, eyeing up the steel cage as he does so, taking in its enormity.

    Justin Roberts:
    The following contest is scheduled for one fall, and it is a STEEL CAGE MATCH! Introducing first, from Lucerne, Switzerland, weighing in at two-hundred-and-thirty-two pounds, he is ‘The Swiss Superman’… CESAAAAAARROOOOO!

    Michael Cole:
    Cesaro earned the opportunity to face his opponent tonight by defeating three men consecutively this past Monday Night on Raw and he chose for his match with David Otunga to be contested inside of the devious Steel Cage!

    Jerry Lawler:
    He made it one-hundred per cent clear why he wanted this particular match, because once you’re in there, the only way of getting out is by incapacitating your opponent for long enough to give yourself enough time to escape, leaving David Otunga with nowhere to run!

    Michael Cole:
    Cesaro has been desperate to get his hands on Otunga since he made his debut in the WWE almost a month ago, but at seemingly every opportunity, Otunga has proved elusive. Whether it is hiding behind other WWE Superstars, or using John Laurinaitis’s protection, Otunga has found a way to escape. But that is not going to be the case tonight.

    Jerry Lawler:
    Exactly, Michael. Otunga has to face up to the man who’s career he has tried to sabotage, and I, along with everyone here tonight, can’t wait to see it happen. I can’t wait to see Cesaro finally give Otunga his comeuppance. What’s even better, is that Cesaro looks like he’s back to full fitness after his ankle injury!

    Michael Cole:
    The injury which restricted some of his movements on Smackdown in the Six Man Tag we saw him compete in, but Cesaro is looking as good as we have ever seen him tonight at Extreme Rules, and that can only spell trouble for David Otunga.


    As he reaches the base of the ramp, Cesaro tilts his head back to examine the sheer height of the structure before him, and grabs it with his hand to check the sturdiness by shaking it slightly.

    Michael Cole:
    You can see Cesaro testing the integrity of that steel mesh; it has got no give whatsoever. Using the cage as a weapon in this match is completely legal, and it will damage your opponent.

    Jerry Lawler:
    I can tell you from first-hand experience that being thrown face-first into one of the walls of the cage is one of the most painful feelings in the world!

    The referee at ringside holds the door open for Cesaro and he walks up the steps and into the ring. Once he’s inside the cage, he turns around in a circle, and smirks, clearly impressed by the imposing size. Cesaro’s music fades out and he pushes one of the walls and encounters full resistance, and this makes him grin to cheers from the fans.

    ***ALL ABOUT THE POWER***

    After an initial pause of a few seconds, allowing the fans to boo loudly, DAVID OTUNGA slowly walks out onto the stage. He has his head bowed down and holds a burgundy cloak around his body until he’s followed by a spotlight to the centre of the stage, before bursting out of the cloak and pointing his fingers into the air. He holds this pose for a couple of seconds before dropping to a knee and adopting the ‘Thinker’ position, flexing his bicep as he does. With the cockiest of all grins on his face, the Harvard alumni rises slowly to his feet and starts to saunter down the ramp.

    Justin Roberts:
    His opponent, from Hollywood, California, by way of Harvard Law School, weighing two-hundred-and-fifty pounds, he is the Assistant to the General Manager of Raw and Smackdown… DAVID OOOOOTUNGAAAA!

    Michael Cole:
    You may have seen the video that David Otunga posted on Twitter yesterday morning, showing that he is mentally and physically ready for his match tonight with Cesaro inside of the steel cage, and he seems to have retained that confidence. Say what you want about Otunga and his practices, but there is no denying that he is in impressive physical shape.

    Jerry Lawler:
    For sure, the man is two-hundred-and-fifty-pounds of muscle! People talk about Cesaro’s strength, but I’ll admit that Otunga is one of the most physically dominating Superstars in the WWE. My problem with him is that he finds the need to weasel around and use his position of power to influence everything and hold other down. What he has done to Superstars such as Cesaro and Ryback is despicable, and I am going to enjoy watching him get what is coming to him at the hands of Cesaro.

    Michael Cole:
    You say that Otunga has tried to get out of this, but it looks like that he’s ready to face up to Cesaro and actually go through with this steel cage match tonight!

    Jerry Lawler:
    Maybe he has decided to grow a pair and face Cesaro like a man, I don’t know. But I don’t trust him; I can’t see how he’s had this sudden change of heart. He puts this video out there and all of a sudden he’s ready for this match? I don’t trust him, Cole; I think that he’s up to something.

    As Otunga gets to the bottom of the ramp, he quickly approaches the steps, actually appearing eager to get inside of the structure with Cesaro. But he halts and walks back down the steps to loud boos and he lifts the ring apron up… where his coffee flask is hidden! Otunga grabs his trusty flask and brings it into the cage with him, taking a sip for good measure. Cesaro shrugs at Otunga’s actions, reminding him what he said he was going to do with the flask on Raw.

    Michael Cole:
    I think this is what Otunga was so smug about, King. He’s bringing that coffee flask into the cage with him! That’s another weapon he can use to his advantage in there!

    Jerry Lawler:
    If you remember what Cesaro said on Raw, and I’m not going to repeat it, I don’t think he’ll mind one bit that Otunga is bringing that damn thing in there!

    The referee in the ring tries to argue with Otunga that he can’t bring the flask in, but he’s quickly shouted down by the Assistant GM. The signal is then given to the man on the outside to shut the cage door, and attention is given to the official on the ring floor as he closes the door and locks it shut with a padlock that was in his pocket, as well as a chain. This referee keeps the key around his neck and the ref in the ring checks that the door is locked. The mood in the arena intensifies as everyone starts getting ready for the match to get started, and the official calls for the bell!



    STEEL CAGE MATCH
    CESARO vs DAVID OTUNGA


    The two men stare each other down and start circling around the ring, with Otunga brandishing the coffee flask in both hands. He taunts Cesaro to come at him, but ‘The Swiss Superman’ is a little wary due to the foreign object. Eventually, Otunga tires of waiting and becomes the aggressor, swinging at Cesaro with the flask, but Cesaro ducks – Bam! European Uppercut! Otunga is knocked back into the ropes and the flask goes flying into the air, landing down in the corner. Cesaro quickly follows up with another European Uppercut whilst Otunga is on the ropes, before Irish Whipping him across the ring into the ropes, and effortlessly taking him overhead with a Back Body Drop on his return!

    The fans are cheering for Cesaro’s quick start to the match and Otunga holds his tailbone in pain as Cesaro stalks him getting back to his feet… and Cesaro launches him with a German Suplex! There is a great shot of Cesaro grinning through the cage, ecstatic that he is able to finally get his hands on Otunga. Otunga uses the corner to bring himself back up to a vertical base, and Cesaro lines him up and fires his shoulder cannons towards him, charging in… and connects with a European Uppercut to Otunga in the corner! The fans cheer loudly for Cesaro as he beats his chest after getting off to a strong start in the match so far.

    He grabs Otunga by the back of the head and stands him up in the corner again, landing a couple of big punches to the midsection. Cesaro hooks his arms underneath Otunga’s and throws him into the middle of the ring, sending him about six feet into the air as he does. It is clear that Cesaro is enjoying this opportunity to exact some revenge on Otunga, and proceeds to leap into the air next to him and land a Double Foot Stomp across his ribs! The winded Otunga tries to roll away from Cesaro, but ‘The Swiss Superman’ doesn’t let him get close to the ropes. Instead, he plucks Otunga from the mat and places him up onto his shoulders, and drops Otunga to the mat again, this time with the Swissblade!

    Cesaro is in total control of the opening couple of minutes of the match, shown by the fact that Otunga is now pleading with him as he lies on the mat with his hands up. The pleas are of course ignored, and Cesaro flattens him down again with a boot to the face. There is a moment where Cesaro pauses, and he looks to the corner, where Otunga’s coffee flask is. He grins as he clearly remembers the promise he made to Otunga on Raw and grabs the flask from the mat and examines it. The fans cheer along as Cesaro even tries the coffee contained in it, and he grimaces at the sour taste but doesn’t spit it out. After shaking off the poor taste, Cesaro approaches Otunga with the flask in hand, but Otunga catches him with a Low Blow!!

    The atmosphere in the arena turns into a hostile one as the commentators remind us that there is no disqualifications inside the steel cage. Cesaro drops to his knees and Otunga starts to get back to his feet as he looks to take advantage of Cesaro enjoying the moment too much. Otunga retrieves his flask from the mat and holds it in both hands as Cesaro slowly gets to his feet but Otunga smacks Cesaro between the eyes with the flask!! For the first time in the match, Cesaro is the man on the floor and Otunga stands dominant. The flask is discarded by Otunga, who now proceeds to stomp down on Cesaro’s chest, and he drops a big elbow drop across the chest as well.

    Otunga lifts Cesaro off of the mat and showcases some of his own strength by effortlessly lifting the Swiss up for a Scoop Slam, and Otunga then proceeds to flex his muscles for the fans to loud boos. He grabs one of Cesaro’s arms and yanks him back up to his feet and wrings the arm and then drops Cesaro down with a Short Arm Clothesline. Otunga retains the grip on the arm to hit another Clothesline following this one, and he tries his a third time, but Cesaro rolls through to unwring his arm. Cesaro breaks Otunga’s grip and tries to hit a European Uppercut, but Otunga leans back to dodge it and quickly grabs Cesaro to take him over with a Back Suplex!

    Satisfied that the damage has been done to Cesaro, Otunga stands back and shouts for him to “GET UP!” and stalks Cesaro as he does. Once Cesaro is back to his feet, Otunga tries to hook him up for The Verdict – but Cesaro elbows Otunga in the side of the head to break up the attempted finishing move. There is a bit of space between both men and both charge at each other, and it is Otunga who comes out on top with a Running Shoulder Block to knock Cesaro into the ropes. Cesaro rebounds off of the ropes and Otunga grabs him by the back of the head to send him into the cage, but Cesaro turns it around and Otunga is forced face-first into the steel mesh of the cage!!

    Cesaro’s reversal garners him a huge reaction from the fans and he looks on as Otunga falls flat to the mat on his back, spread-eagle on the canvas. Cesaro cracks his neck out to recover from Otunga’s powerful offence, and he slowly brings his opponent back up and he shoves him into the corner. Thinking big, Cesaro lifts Otunga onto the top turnbuckle, so he is seated on the top. Cesaro climbs onto the middle rope himself, and hooks Otunga’s arm over his neck as he climbs, forcing Otunga to stand on the top rope. He is eventually joined up in the high-risk district by Cesaro, who tries to take Otunga overhead for the Superplex, but the Assistant GM is resisting for all of his worth, and he manages to knock Cesaro off of him, and there is an agonising moment for the fans as Cesaro crashes down to the mat below!

    Otunga requires a moment to compose himself, but he quickly realises the fortuitous position he has found himself in, and turns around to try and climb over the top of the cage! The two walls adjoining to make the corner makes it easier than it would be for Otunga to climb out of the cage, and once he has one leg over the top of the structure, Cesaro suddenly springs back to life and grabs onto Otunga’s other leg! There is a tug of war between both men, but Cesaro’s strength comes out on top and he manages to pull Otunga away from victory and both men are once again left standing on the top rope, using the cage to support themselves. Otunga catches Cesaro with a right hand to knock him slightly, but Cesaro returns the favour and Otunga almost falls to the mat below, but is able to just about hold on.

    The two men trade hard shots to the head, with neither able to knock the other down from their position on the top rope, until Cesaro appears to voluntarily drop down to the mat. This action is questioned by the commentators, who wonder if Cesaro is gifting Otunga the match, but it becomes clear that he isn’t, as Cesaro grabs Otunga’s boot and pulls him away from the ropes, causing Otunga’s body to go horizontal for a moment which allows Cesaro to catch him with a Euopean Uppercut to the face on his way down!! This move stuns the fans into applause and cheers, and Otunga lays crumpled on the mat as Cesaro grabs him again and puts his head in between his legs and reaches over to clasp his hands… and THE NEUTRALIZER CONNECTS!!!

    With Otunga truly down and out, the official on the outside of the ring goes to open the door for Cesaro to leave the ring, but he shakes his head and takes one more look at Otunga on the mat. It is clear that he’s thinking about punishing him further, but ultimately decides that Otunga has had enough, as evidenced by his barely-conscious form on the mat. ‘The Swiss Superman’ turns to the cage wall on the side of the entrance ramp and starts to climb up. He sits atop the cage for a moment and does the shoulder cannon around the arena, to which the fans respond in kind. With a smile on his face, Cesaro carefully climbs down the cage and jumps down, the bell ringing the second his feet hit the floor!


    WINNER:
    CESARO (7:21)


    ***MIRACLE***

    Justin Roberts:
    Here is your winner, by way of escaping the cage… ‘The Swiss Superman’ CESAAAAAROOOOOO!!

    There is a look of satisfaction across the face of Cesaro as he has his arm raised by the referee stationed outside the ring, and he sees Otunga grimacing in pain in the middle of the ring. The referee in the ring starts to help Otunga up, and the Assistant GM is able to sit up, and he locks eyes with Cesaro as the cage is raised back above the ring. The look on Otunga’s face is not a vengeful one, and he slowly nods his head to Cesaro, and Cesaro wears a stone face as he turns his back on his defeated opponent, but smiles as he slaps hands with the fans.

    Michael Cole:
    You can see it on the face of David Otunga; he now understands what everyone has been saying about Cesaro this entire time.

    Jerry Lawler:
    I’ll give Otunga some credit, as he did bring the fight to Cesaro as best he could, but as expected, it wasn’t good enough. We saw some innovative offence from Cesaro in that cage, and I’m startin’ to think that this guy could hit someone with one of those uppercuts from any position!

    Michael Cole:
    I think Otunga will agree with you on that one! King, what do you think is next for Cesaro after this victory tonight at Extreme Rules? I think that the days of being forced into matches he’s better than might be past him now, surely?

    Jerry Lawler:
    David Otunga, and by extension, John Laurinaitis will most likely think again before putting someone like Heath Slater in front of this guy, because Otunga just learned that lesson the hard way tonight. I don’t know what could be next for Cesaro, I don’t see a ceiling for this guy!

    Michael Cole:
    It does seem that the sky is the limit for Cesaro, but I think the rest of tonight is about enjoying this moment with the WWE Universe.

    Once he has reached the top of the ramp after slapping hands with as many fans as he can, Cesaro turns and gives us one more blast of the shoulder cannons and then leaves with a wave to the crowd. David Otunga is shown being helped out of the ring, and he clearly favours his neck as he limps up the ramp.



    Whilst that wasn’t the hardest match of my career by any stretch of the imagination, I know that it was one of the most important. I have won my first WWE Pay-Per-View match and I feel great. I don’t think that Otunga will be putting the brakes on my career any more if that look once the cage was raised was anything to go by. The look in his eyes showed that he knew I beat him convincingly because I am the better competitor and he didn’t have any arguments. That look means that he respects me now.

    I don’t feel much of the effects of the match other than a slight headache after being hit with the coffee flask – I’m lucky the boiling coffee didn’t end up all over me – but I decided to go to the medical guys just to get checked over. I bumped into Ryback on the way and he congratulated me and I told him that I’ve opened the door for both of us now. We agreed that it is now time to go our own ways and do our own things, which he agreed on. He mentioned going after the United States Championship, but if I’m being honest, I have my eyes on something else now.

    Watching Chris Jericho and CM Punk beat each other senseless over the WWE Championship shows everyone how important it is to hold that title. If Punk beats Jericho tonight, I don’t see any other viable challengers being lined up. I’m sure that he’ll want to face me as well… I am just getting started, after all.

    Re: Miracle: The Cesaro Story by TWG

    As expected Cesaro beats David Otunga and teaches him a lesson. Nicely written match and I really enjoy every update in this thread. Interesting you kept most of the other results the same as what happened in real life? Are you planning on doing that throughout or will you be changing things to fit the story of Cesaro? Wonder where the Swiss Superman goes next. I'm pleased with my choice of his opponent so I'm excited to see what you do. Great work as always TWG!

    Thanks for the feedback mate.

    To to answer your question, I'll be keeping the results the same on the whole unless it affects Cesaro. I'm trying to keep the 'universe' as close to what it actually was but with some changes to make it easier.

    With what I'm planning your pick actually fits in very well, so thanks for that too!

    Re: Miracle: The Cesaro Story by TWG

    A very good showing from Cesaro in his first PPV win. I was really hoping that you would go the route of turning Ryback heel and letting him and Cesaro feud into the summer.

    Otunga definitely learnt his lesson but I'm not sure Cesaro warrants a match with Punk off the back of beating Otunga. Even if he does get that shot I hope it's a temporary placement to allow a new feud to start up for Cesaro heading towards Summerslam. This is the time that Punk and Bryan had their AJ Lee feud so I'm intrigued to see what Cesaro getting involved with Punk, if he does that is, effects Bryan as well as the plans moving forward.

    I still think someone costs Cesaro his opportunity if it is where we are heading, and defeat at the edge of glory will be a great way to continue Cesaro's story arc and make it all the sweeter when he does break the glass ceiling and grab that brass ring.

    Keep up the great work TWG, always an interesting read.

    Re: Miracle: The Cesaro Story by TWG

    Just binge read this on the train and I have loved every single part of it, it reminds me of Nash's old btb "The Kayfabe Diaries" with Danny Hound.

    I'm really impressed with how you have captured not only Cesaro but also Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler so well, do you have an overall arc in mind? Or are we going feud to feud? I get that this is only one year in Cesaro's career, I was just wondering if this was all one big storyline arc or if it is multiple small arcs?

    Really enjoying, love the layout and the writing style, keep up the great work!

    That's a card that I've always got in my hand but I don't want to play it yet as both have debuted as faces and connected with the fans well. I think they're popularity is too similar at the moment for the fans to fully get behind either of them if one turned on the other just yet.

    You'll see in the next week of TV shows where I'm headed with Cesaro. I'm my planning on changing too much with Punk and Bryan as both are characters which might get involved with Cesaro going forward and I want them to have the background with each other.

    I'm glad you're enjoying it, Syk, I appreciate your time and feedback!

    Thanks, DE. It was actually reading The Kayfabe Diaries which gave me the idea to do a single character BTB, and I'm very flattered by the comparison between the two projects.

    I am happy that people are liking Cole and King, as they're great for exposition and getting some of the ideas I'm having across. I do enjoy writing the two of them when they're getting along with each other, which is why Cole isn't a dick.

    This is an overall arc, so the next feud will follow on from the Otunga feud and the character will be built over time. The goal is to give him a better first year than he actually had, which I don't think will be too hard if you read the summary in the opening posts.

    Thanks again for taking the time to read, man.

    Re: Miracle: The Cesaro Story by TWG

    I thought I left predictions for Extreme Rules, so my bad on missing out on that one.

    As for Extreme Rules itself, I think you booked the match pretty well. You had Cesaro basically dominate, except for the odd bit of offense from Otunga and that was the right way to do things. That European Uppercut off of the cage at the end was an AWESOME spot as well, and all cage matches should have at least one.

    Based off of everything that was said on Raw, I was disappointed Cesaro didn’t do more with the coffee flask, I thought you missed an opportunity there. I was also kind of hoping that Cesaro would punish Otunga a little more, but due to the respectful nod afterwards, it makes sense that it didn’t happen.

    Cesaro’s thoughts before being on screen continue to be a highlight of this thread as well. Even mentioning things such as his match positioning on the card is just really great stuff. I look forward to seeing what Cesaro’s next move is, although like others have said, I don’t think he’s ready to be hot shotted into a title feud with Punk/Bryan as of yet.

    Terrific stuff so far though, keep it up.

    APRIL 30 2012
    NUTTER CENTER - DAYTON, OHIO


    The atmosphere in the arena was different tonight as everyone was still reacting to John Cena's victory over Brock Lesnar and the word is that Triple H is here tonight to have a showdown with Lesnar, who everyone is trying to avoid. Everyone else, that is. I'm not that bothered if I do bump into him. Watching John Laurinaitis open the show in a neck brace after his GTS from CM Punk last night was funny, but not as hilarious as David Otunga sporting a matching one after his match with me. Laurinaitis announces that there is a Beat the Clock to determine the number one contender to decide who will face Punk at Over the Limit... and I'm not one of the announced participants.

    No surprises there that he doesn't see me being ready for that kind of opportunity yet, but I do have a match tonight. Whilst Triple H and Brock Lesnar were brawling, I was told that I'd be facing Drew McIntyre after the first Beat the Clock match between The Miz and Santino Marella. It was great to see Santino win, although it was by count out after Ryback made good on his promise and went after Miz mid match and scared him off. I was proud in a way to see Ryback marching around with Miz's championship in the ring.

    It was on my way to the ring that I see John Laurinaitis and Otunga about to give an interview with Matt Striker. I know I shouldn't poke the bear but I can't resist. Plus, I want him to know I'm not happy about not being a part of Beat the Clock.



    MATT STRIKER is standing by backstage with JOHN LAURINAITIS and DAVID OTUNGA, both still wearing their matching blue People Power neckbraces. The fans boo at the sight of them and Striker waits for them to abate before he commences the interview.

    Matt Striker: WWE Universe, I'm standing by with the General Manager of Raw and Smackdown, John Laurinaitis and his Assistant General Manager David Otunga. Mister Laurinaitis, tonight's show has been an eventful one already, with the brawl between Triple H and Brock Lesnar and Ryback interfering in the first Beat the Clock match-

    ???: Matt, if you don't mind. I'd like to ask Mister Laurinaitis a question of my own.

    Everyone looks to the left offscreen and CESARO confidently walks into the shot to big cheers from the fans. David Otunga's eyes widen and he shuffles slightly behind Laurinaitis.

    John Laurinaitis: I'm in the middle of something here, Cesaro.

    Cesaro: I'm sorry for interrupting, but I don't need too much of your time. You can start by telling David there that I'm not here to pick up from where I left off last night because I think he got the message.

    Realising he is not in any physical danger, Otunga nods his head slowly and stands back where he was before, clutching his neck.

    Cesaro: I'm just not sure that you watched my match with David last night at Extreme Rules, because if you did, I can't understand why you left me out of the Beat the Clock challenge tonight.

    John Laurinaitis: I saw your match last night Cesaro, where you almost caused permanent neck damage to my valued assistant and legal advisor. I didn't appreciate you doing that, much like how I don't appreciate you confronting me and questioning my judgement. I gave you a match tonight, that's what you wanted so please think next time about the next time you want to talk to me.

    Laurinaitis goes to turn back to Striker, but Cesaro just stands in the way of the interviewer.

    Cesaro: I don't think you're listening to me, Mister Laurinaitis. So I have an idea that will help you, and solve two of your problems. I know you have a lot on your plate right now with the whole Brock Lesnar thing.

    John Laurinaitis: Thirty seconds to give me a good idea or your match tonight is cancelled.

    Cesaro: Fine. Mister Laurinaitis, you don't like me and you don't like CM Punk, right? You know what he's capable of and so do I, and I pretty sure David will tell you what I'm capable of. So why not this Friday night on Smackdown... CM Punk versus Cesaro?

    There is a loud cheer in the arena for that and Laurinaitis is clearly intrigued.

    Cesaro: I think that the people would want to see it and that Punk will enjoy the test as much as I would. Plus, we'd both be doing your dirty work in a way.

    A loud "YES" chant erupts from the WWE Universe in the Nutter Center and it is clear that Laurinaitis is coming round to the idea.

    John Laurinaitis: You're right, Cesaro. I don't like you and I don't like CM Punk. The idea of you both fighting each other does solve two of my problems at once. You're both thorns in my side and I wouldn't mind you both just taking each other out for good. So I'm going to put a little added incentive to your match with CM Punk.... The WWE Championship is going to be on the line!

    WOAH! Cesaro's eyes light up and he nods his head, and Otunga even looks unsure of the decision made by his boss. The crowd are going wild as well.

    John Laurinaitis: I am all about giving the people what they want, Cesaro. I'm also about getting what I want.

    The two stare down for a moment and Laurinaitis smirks as if he came up with the idea himself, and Cesaro nods his head before walking past Laurinaitis, putting his hand down on Otunga's shoulder as he does and causing Otunga to wince in pain.


    I wasn't even asking for a title shot! The purpose of that suggestion was to be in a main event and test myself against one of the best wrestlers in the world. Punk isn't here tonight so I won't be able to get his reaction straight away... Wait, he's just tweeted.

    I'm quite relieved he didn't mind me doing that then.

    I can get back to looking forward to my first championship match here in the WWE after tonight. I've still got a job to do and McIntyre will know that a win for him tonight could entitle him to a title shot as well. He's a former Intercontinental Champion so he's above the levels of Heath Slater and the like. I'm told that he's making his entrance during the commercial break and then it's time for me to head out there.


    Once we return from the break, we can see DREW MCINTYRE entering the ring with a serious look on his face, having not really been featured in the last few weeks. The fans are near enough neutral towards him, and he doesn't bother interacting with them in return.

    Justin Roberts: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Entering the ring, from Ayr, Scotland weighing in at two-hundred-and-fifty-six pounds... DREW MCINTYRE!

    ***MIRACLE***


    The fans start cheering loudly as CESARO walks out onto the stage with his arms raised into the air. He pretends as if he is locking them in place and fires his shoulder cannons around the arena as the fans join in. As you'd assume from what we just watched, he is clearly in a good mood as he slaps hands with the crowd as he walks down to the ring.

    Justin Roberts: Introducing his opponent. From Lucerne, Switzerland, weighing two-hundred-and-thirty-two pounds... CESAAAAAROOOOO!!

    Michael Cole: Welcome back to Monday Night Raw and we are taking a break from our Beat the Clock challenge matches to determine the number one contender for the WWE Championship, to show you the man who will be challenging for the title this Friday night on Smackdown, Cesaro!

    Jerry Lawler: Cesaro is on a roll at the moment, Michael! He can't do anything wrong! He's one night removed from overcoming David Otunga inside a steel cage at Extreme Rules and here he is now, in a position where this time next week he could be the WWE Champion! Who'd have thought that he'd be able to twist John Laurinaitis's ear?

    Michael Cole: I'm not sure even he thought he was going to get a title shot! He just wanted a match with Punk to test himself! He put it to the General Manager that he could pit the two of them against each other in the hope that they take each other out!

    Jerry Lawler: It seems that this guy's smarts are not exclusively for his matches in the ring.

    Michael Cole: Cesaro proved one of his biggest doubters wrong when he defeated Otunga dominantly, and a championship victory within his first month on the WWE roster will prove any others who for some reason would doubt his ability. I was just checking my Twitter feed during the commercial break and Cesaro and CM Punk, who's not here tonight, have already had a friendly exchange ahead of this huge match. Punk has welcomed the challenge and Cesaro says he wants to tear the house down!

    Jerry Lawler: I think they WILL tear the house down! All Cesaro has to do is make it out of this match with Drew McIntyre in one piece.

    Michael Cole: That may be easier said than done against the former Intercontinental and Tag Team Champion, who has a known mean streak.

    As he gets into the ring, Cesaro examines McIntyre, who wears a mean scowl across his face. The eye contact between the two is broken when Cesaro mounts the second rope and nods his head and cannons for the fans. Once he has jumped down, the referee performs the necessary checks on both men and waits for Cesaro's music to fade out before he calls for the bell!

    SINGLES MATCH:
    CESARO vs DREW MCINTYRE


    The two men approach each other in the middle of the ring, and lock up in a collar-and-elbow. McIntyre is clearly putting in a lot of effort, but is unable to move Cesaro whilst the Swiss is standing his ground. McIntyre breaks the grapple up and tries to get things started with a swinging right hook, but Cesaro ducks the strike and cracks McIntyre off with a European Uppercut! This sends the Scot into the ropes and Cesaro charges in... and Clotheslines McIntyre down to the floor!

    The referee attempts to dissuade Cesaro as he is clearly lining McIntyre up, but this doesn't stop Cesaro charging against the ropes and crashing into McIntyre on the outside with a Suicide Dive! Cesaro instantly springs back to his feet as McIntyre is left laying, soaking up the cheers from the crowd in the Nutter Center.


    (Michael Cole: Cesaro is on fire tonight, King!

    Jerry Lawler: Being given a championship opportunity does wonders for a Superstar's confidence, Michael. And Cesaro had plenty of that anyway!)

    After acknowledging the fans, Cesaro lifts McIntyre up and rolls him back into the ring, following him in. Once he's inside, Cesaro drops onto McIntyre and presses the shoulders down for a pin!

    ONE!

    TWO!!

    KICKOUT!

    With McIntyre still on his back after kicking out of the pin, Cesaro steadies himself next to him and lands a Double Foot Stomp onto his chest! A winded McIntyre splutters on the mat and rolls towards the corner, where he props himself up against the turnbuckles. Cesaro locks in on him and charges into the corner, but McIntyre dodges the Uppercut in the corner, and Cesaro clatters into the top turnbuckle in a nasty-looking collision! This is the opening that McIntyre needs, and he comes in with a vicious knee to the side of Cesaro's head, crushing it against the middle turnbuckle!

    An angered McIntyre screams for Cesaro to get up through gritted teeth, and when he does, McIntyre drops him with a DDT! Cesaro drops onto his back and McIntyre stomps hard on his chest, before dropping an elbow down across it, then quickly getting up and dropping another! McIntyre starts to wear Cesaro down with repeated elbows and he eventually halts and faces the hard camera, telling it that this is "his time".

    The former Intercontinental Champion stands in the corner and waits for Cesaro to get back to his feet, and he connects with a Big Boot to the face, creating a loud slapping noise which takes the fans by surprise! With Cesaro laid out in the middle of the ring, McIntyre drops down and hooks a leg!

    ONE!

    TWO!!

    CESARO KICKS OUT!!


    (Michael Cole: Cesaro must have kicked out that time on pure instinct! What a boot to the face from McIntyre!

    Jerry Lawler: That was a close two count, but I think that Drew McIntyre is of the opinion that that should have been three. Look at ‘im!)

    McIntyre is displeased at the least at not putting away Cesaro with the emphatic kick, and he gets up and bears down on the referee, poking him on the chest and demanding, “Count FASTER!”. The official looks intimidated by the angry Scot, and he turns back around to follow up on Cesaro, but ‘The Swiss Superman’ has used his chance to recover and cracks McIntyre with a European Uppercut! Drew stumbles back into the ropes and Cesaro Irish Whips him across the ring, and tries to elevate him up into the air on his return, but McIntyre lands on his feet!

    Cesaro gets nothing but air on his European Uppercut attempt, and he turns around into McIntyre’s grip, where he’s the one lifted vertically into the air and planted with a High Angle Spinebuster!! The fans are deflated as Cesaro’s comeback into the match is impressively put to an end, and McIntyre pushes both hands down onto Cesaro’s chest and glares at the official as he makes the cover!

    ONE!

    TWO!!

    THR-NO!!

    To a loud pop, Cesaro powers out of the pin and McIntyre is almost tearing his hair out in frustration, and he is once again blaming the referee, who was counting at the correct speed. The Scot slams his hand down on the mat three times and screams in the referee’s face, “HOW HARD IS THAT TO DO?!” before calming himself down and waiting for Cesaro to get to his feet. Once he does, Drew boots him in the midsection so he doubles over, and applies the Double Underhook he requires to hit his opponent with the FUTURE SHOCK – but Cesaro prevents the move by not allowing McIntyre to plant his head on the mat!

    Cesaro is bent over with McIntyre hanging off of him, trying to get him down to complete the DDT, but Cesaro instead shows immense strength and straightens up, bringing McIntyre up with him, and placing him up on his shoulders. McIntyre can be seen shaking his head, but it isn’t enough to protect him from the Swissblade by Cesaro!

    The Nutter Center goes nuts for Cesaro’s feat of strength, and they’re now all joining in with him as he thrusts the cannons in McIntyre’s direction! Cesaro scoops his opponent off of the mat and puts him in position for, and then hits him with, THE NEUTRALIZER! McIntyre is flipped onto his back and Cesaro hooks the leg!

    ONE!

    TWO!!

    THREE!!!

    WINNER: CESARO (5.49)
    ***MIRACLE***


    Justin Roberts: Here is your winner… CESAAAAROOOOO!

    Getting to his feet in the middle of the ring, Cesaro cracks his neck out before having his arm raised by the referee whilst McIntyre rolls out of the ring and down to the floor. Replays of the match’s highlights are shown on the screen, Cesaro’s Suicide Dive, McIntyre’s Big Boot and Spinebuster, Cesaro countering the Future Shock into the Swissblade and then the match-ending Neutralizer.

    Michael Cole: As you can see from the replays currently being shown on your screen, what we just witnessed was a back-and-forth match between the victorious Cesaro and a game Drew McIntyre.

    Jerry Lawler: McIntyre allowed his anger and emotions to get the better of him and that is what ended up costing him in the end, but of course take nothing away from Cesaro! He endured McIntyre’s offense and used nothing but pure strength to avoid the Future Shock DDT.

    Michael Cole: It was the performance of a champion, King. Which is something that Cesaro can become this Friday night on Smackdown when he challenges CM Punk, who I am sure will have been watching this match to scout his next challenger.

    Jerry Lawler: No doubt, and I think that Punk will have been impressed by what he just saw. I might even go as far as saying that he might be concerned for his championship reign!

    Michael Cole: I know I would be if I knew I was coming up against this guy! He’s on a roll at the moment! He’ll be looking to take that momentum into the Huntington Center in Toledo this Friday night, and then onto Over the Limit against the winner of tonight’s Beat the Clock!

    Cesaro celebrates with the fans as he walks up the ramp, slapping hands with them, as we fade away.


    That was one of the tougher matches that I have been with since making my debut, and I’ll admit McIntyre almost had me with that Spinebuster, which I should have seen coming. Luckily his set up for his finishing move is easy to spot and I was able to block it as a result. I can tell that everyone enjoyed that counter as I could hear the fans cheering as well as Michael Cole raving about it on commentary.

    I can focus on Friday night now, as I’m finally getting what I came here for. I’m going to be facing one of, if not, the best wrestler in the planet right now for the WWE Championship. This is going to be the biggest match of my career by a long way and I’m actually grateful to John Laurinaitis for giving me the opportunity, despite his motives for doing so.

    All I can do now is enjoy the rest of the show, and after that, it will be a case of watching through some of Punk’s more recent matches.



    One more wwe.com exclusive to come before Smackdown and the WWE Championship Match between CM Punk and Cesaro. You guys aren't the only ones who think that Cesaro is a little early to be getting a title shot...

    Re: Miracle: The Cesaro Story by TWG

    Been meaning to do this... Sorry for the delay.

    A nice update here with Cesaro's progression. It's smart, in a way, to have Laurinaitis deny Cesaro an opportunity given what he did to Otunga at Extreme Rules. Solid storytelling there by having Ace back one of his guys and make his effort futile. And WOW, a title match!? Awesome! Punk giving Cesaro props is right up his alley and makes a tonnage of sense too.

    Cesaro was always going to win his match with McIntyre especially after getting the title shot. Your last bit there by saying, "You guys aren't the only ones who think that Cesaro is a little early to be getting a title shot..." does have me intrigued about how long this is going to last and if it even happens on SmackDown.

    Nonetheless, keep up the good work, bud.

    Re: February BTBOTM - Miracle: The Cesaro Story by TWG

    CM Punk Vs Cesaro? This is going to be one hell of a bout, but I don't think it's going to end in a clean fashion if Johnny Ace has anything to say about it.

    Re: February BTBOTM - Miracle: The Cesaro Story by TWG

    Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who voted for this project for BTBOTM. In over 6 years of doing BTB, this is the first time I have won anything like this, so it means a lot. Hopefully it won't be the last, but I suppose I will actually have to get my arse into gear and write for that to happen! Work has been full on lately, but I'm hoping to finish off the WWE Championship Match by the end of the month.

    For now, here's a wwe.com special.



    We are in a normal studio environment and the camera pans down to show MICHAEL COLE standing alone in the studio in a smart black suit with a blue tie. ‘The Voice of the WWE’ smiles at the camera as there is some generic guitar music playing in the background before he starts talking.

    Michael Cole: Good afternoon, WWE Universe. My name is Michael Cole and I would like to thank you for joining me on wwe.com and Youtube for this short special dedicated to the two men who will do battle for the coveted WWE Championship this Friday Night on Smackdown in Toledo. Those two men are of course the WWE Champion CM Punk…

    A faded graphic of Punk holding the championship appears on the left screen behind Cole, who now motions to the other screen on the right side of the frame.

    Michael Cole: Who will be defending against ‘The Swiss Superman’ Cesaro.

    Cesaro now appears on the right screen, looking intense during an in-match shot. Cole starts to walk to the right of the screen, and the camera follows him.

    Michael Cole: I’m not going to be casting an eye over this match alone, however. I will be joined by three esteemed guests who each be able to give an insight into one of the most anticipated Smackdown main events in recent history.

    As Cole reaches his destination, he takes up a spot at the left of a raised desk, and we can see that there are three other people on the desk, going from left to right; JERRY ‘THE KING’ LAWLER, the current World Heavyweight Champion SHEAMUS and finally a very disinterested-looking CHRIS JERICHO. Cole nods at each man in turn, before introducing them.

    Michael Cole: As you can see, I'm being joined at this time by my broadcast partner, Jerry 'The King' Lawler, the reigning World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus and the first ever Undisputed Champion, 'Y2J' Chris Jericho. Thank you for coming along, gentlemen.

    Jerry Lawler: It's a pleasure, Michael.

    Sheamus: T'anks for havin' me on, fella.

    Chris Jericho: ...

    Everyone looks in Jericho's direction and is unsure how to react to him just looking away, bored and seething.

    Michael Cole
    : Very well, then. Jerry, I'll come to you first. You've been sitting alongside me at ringside, seeing first hand the massive impression Cesaro has made since making his debut last several weeks ago. Do you think that he's ready for the chance to become the WWE Champion?

    Jerry Lawler: Oh, more than. Easily, Michael. He has had such a long and extensive career, granted most of which has taken place outside the WWE, but during this time he has amassed the skills we have seen him use to absolutely wipe the floor with anyone who has stood opposite him.

    Lawler pauses for a moment and looks around the room to the other men standing with him.

    Jerry Lawler: He's had the big match experience already in the WWE already. That cage match at Extreme Rules against David Otunga was huge-

    Chris Jericho: Are you even being serious, Lawler?

    Everyone is taken aback by the sudden outburst from Y2J, who looks at King with disgust.

    Chris Jericho: I saw that match that this Cesaro guy had with Otunga; it was nothing special. Beating David Otunga is NOT an achievement, do you understand me? Beating The Rock and Steve Austin in one night to become the first ever Undisputed Champion is an achievement. Beating Edge at Wrestlemania is an achievement. Being the record holder for most Intercontinental Championships is an achievement. Those are all things that I, Chris Jericho, have done. Those are proper achievements. So don't you dare have the audacity to try and tell me that beating David Otunga is an achievement.

    There isn't really a response from Lawler to that, and Cole clears his throat before addressing Jericho directly.

    Michael Cole: Chris, I was going to come to you later, but I was wondering if there is anything else you would like to add?

    Chris Jericho: No, and you address me as 'Mister Jericho', Cole, you idiot. You don't get to call me, 'Chris'.

    After a defiant scowl aimed at Cole, Jericho returns to looking bored and not engaged.

    Michael Cole: Fair enough. Jerry, I'll come back to you again. But this time I want to ask you about CM Punk. Do you think that he has had a challenge like the one he is headed for this Friday night before?

    Jerry Lawler: Avoiding causing offence to one of my fellow guests, no, I don't think he has.

    After a precursory glance at Jericho, Lawler continues.

    Jerry Lawler: Punk has faced a multitude of challengers, such as Alberto Del Rio, The Miz, Dolph Ziggler and Chris Jericho, but none of those competitors are like Cesaro. Some may be technically gifted like 'The Swiss Superman', but I can't think of many people who can match Cesaro's pound-for-pound strength that he brings to the table.

    Everyone else (bar Jericho) nods in agreement.

    Jerry Lawler: I know that CM Punk as a competitor, as well as a champion, will welcome this challenge with open arms. Though as we discussed on Raw on Monday night, he should be concerned at the same time.

    Michael Cole: Thank you, partner. Sheamus, if you don't mind, I'll bring you into the conversation now.

    The Irishman gladly nods.

    Michael Cole: Sheamus, like Cesaro, you had your first opportunity at the WWE Championship early in your career back in late 2009, when you defeated John Cena. What will it take for Cesaro to emulate your success?

    Sheamus: T'at's a good question, Michael. Back t'en, I was young an' I was hungry for success to the point where I was rut'less towards my opponents. I see t'at same fire and aggression in Cesaro. Sometimes, all someone needs is t'e opportunity to grab t'e brass ring and t'en make the most of it. T'at's what I did back t'en an' I wouldn't be surprised if Cesaro is able to do t'e same t'ing. No disrespect to Punk, o'course.

    Cole nods along, and directs another question to Sheamus.

    Michael Cole: You are of course the World Heavyweight Champion; what would your approach to a competitor like Cesaro be, if it was you defending your championship?

    Sheamus: I'd be doin' anyt'ing I could to avoid t'ose Uppercuts!

    Sheamus shares a laugh with Cole and King, before continuing.

    Sheamus: You have to be ready for t'e unexpected. Cesaro has all t'is experience an' he'll have moves in his locker t'at we won't have seen before. Punk will have to take a lot o' time scoutin' his opponent and try to be ready for as much as he can be.

    Sheamus looks as if he is about to finish, but then puts his hand out to continue.

    Sheamus: Obviously, I'm tellin' ya somet'ing t'at Punk will have already done, as soon as t'e match got announced on Raw. He's WWE Champion for a reason, an t'e fact he does his homework is one of 'em.

    Satisfied with the answers provided, Cole smiles and nods his head. He opens out his body to everyone and holds his arm outstretched.

    Michael Cole: I think that all that’s left to do is wrap things up here on this short wwe.com and Youtube special, but first, I want predictions from the three of you before we sign off. Jerry, we’ll come to you first.

    Cole shoots a cautious look to Jericho as he says this, but then looks on as Lawler presses on.

    Jerry Lawler: This is such a tough call to make, because these two will know each other so well, but we have yet to see ANYONE take Cesaro to his limits like Punk will on Smackdown and we haven’t yet seen Cesaro in that situation so I can’t possible tell how he’ll react. For that reason, I’m going to predict that Punk retains the WWE Championship, and goes on to face Daniel Bryan at Over the Limit.

    There is almost a pained expression on Lawler’s face as he goes against Cesaro.

    Michael Cole: Sheamus?

    Sheamus
    : When I beat John Cena to win t’e WWE title back at TLC ’09, no one gave me a chance in hell, but I still won. As much as I respect CM Punk, I t’ink Cesaro can follow in my footsteps and shock t’e world by becomin’ t’e WWE Champion in even less time that it took me to do it.

    Michael Cole: So we have a split decision so far! Care to be the tie-breaker Chr- Mister Jericho?

    The hate-filled look on Chris Jericho’s face as he turns his head towards Michael Cole could kill, and it even appears to spook Cole a little bit.

    Chris Jericho: How dare you disrespect me by asking me to comment on someone else, some randomer, getting MY WWE title shot! I was screwed at Wrestlemania, screwed at Extreme Rules and I was screwed in the Beat the Clock on Raw! Chris Jericho should be the man facing CM Punk this Friday night on Smackdown, not that Swiss idiot Cesaro!

    Now just ignoring everyone else, Jericho addresses the camera directly.

    Chris Jericho: I am INSULTED that I was asked to be a part of this – whatever the hell this is – and pretend to be happy about someone else getting a WWE Championship match when I am the rightful number one contender.

    Y2J pauses and glares down the lens with a hateful look in his eyes.

    Chris Jericho: This isn’t over.

    After lingering for a few seconds, Jericho rips his microphone off and storms off of the set leaving everyone else completely confused. Cole can be seen looking off-camera as to what to do, but he gets a signal to wrap things up. The two professional broadcasters on screen smile to the camera nervously as Sheamus is staring in amusement whilst we can hear Jericho berating people as he leaves the studio.

    Michael Cole: Well, thank you for joining us here on wwe.com and Youtube. Please make sure to tune in to Smackdown this Friday night to see CM Punk defend the WWE Championship against ‘The Swiss Superman’ Cesaro! Until next time.

    The camera starts zooming out and panning up to the WWE logo at the top of the studio, but unfortunately for the production guys, the mics are still on.

    Sheamus: What a jackass.

    Re: February BTBOTM - Miracle: The Cesaro Story by TWG

    Cesaro's dreams of becoming World champion may just be shattered by Jericho. I honestly love the set up. You've written Jericho well and set the stage for his resentment. Sheamus was a little harder to understand at times because you've written the dialogue to read like an Irish accent. Perhaps we shall see Jericho Vs Cesaro Vs Punk at a pay per view somewhere down the line.
