    Raw Re: WWE: A different future



    2nd January:

    Monday Night Raw starts off with Mick Foley welcoming us to Monday Night Raw. He does his usual cheap pop as he says that this will be a great year for Monday Night Raw as he aims to take the A show to new heights. He says tonight in the main event after Big E's win last week as a reward for his massive win he will face Rusev for the US title tonight. He also declared that due to the recent issues with the Club he is issuing a ban on anyone being at ringside during the match and anyone who comes to ringside during the match will be fired.

    At this point Rusev's music hits to heat from the crowd as the US champion makes his way down to the ring looking mildly annoyed here as Lana comes down to the ring. Rusev asks Mick Foley what kind of a man is he? Foley questions what he means and Rusev asks how he can deny his darling wife the chance to watch her husband crush Big E in the main event and retain his US title. Foley says he is not taking any chance with the Club getting involved and messing with the New Day so is banning everyone from ringside.

    Foley tells Rusev that he has been boasting about how he will crush everyone in his path well now you have the chance against someone who last week beat the World champion and was the first man to pin him since he joined Monday Night Raw. Rusev smirks telling Foley that when he beats Big E tonight he will prove why he is going to win the Royal Rumble and main event Wrestlemania as not just US champion or Bulgaria's champion but the World champion. Rusev heads off to the back with Lana as Foley tells the crowd that before he was disturbed he had a few more words to say. However at that point HHH's music hits to a pop from the crowd as Stephanie McMahon and HHH make their way out to the ring. Raw goes to an ad break as they make their entrance to the ring clearly here to speak to Foley.

    We come back from the ad break with HHH and Stephanie McMahon in the ring with microphones in hand as they tell the crowd they are back on Monday Night Raw which gets mostly heat as the crowd are happy to see HHH but not Stephaine McMahon. Steph tells Foley she has enjoyed some of his work in charge but has some concerns like agreeing to give the number 30 spot to Daniel Bryan as well as Smackdown getting the rights to the Elimination chamber this year. Foley tells Steph he has faith in his stars to win the rumble even without the 30 spot and that Real Americans & Shining Stars would be good editions to the Monday Night Raw roster. HHH says he can see Foley's needs a hand and Steph came to the decision that it would be for the best if Foley had a co-GM in HHH. Foley questions if this was her decision or his but before anything else can be said in the ring Samoa Joe music hits to a mixed reaction from the crowd as the World champion looking angry as hell having lost for the first time on Monday Night Raw thanks to Seth Rollins last week.

    HHH asks what Joe is doing out here and he tells HHH that he should destroy HHH for what Rollins did last week which gets a mixed reaction from the crowd here. He tells him he needs to get his little student on a leash and promises as soon as he sees him he is going to make what happened to his knee last year a walk in the park. However at that point Seth Rollins makes his way out with a microphone in hand asking if he wound Joe up last week when he cost him his match? He says Joe may have the edge when it comes to power but when it comes to mind games he learned from the best which makes HHH smirks in the ring. However Joe is not in the mood for talking and goes on the attack with Rollins meeting him on the ramp starting a brawl between the two men.

    Both men battle it out on the ramp with Rollins taking Joe down to his knees and looking in control as he looks to hit Joe with the Pedigree but his knee buckles under the pressure of the move allowing Joe to take him down. He looks like he is about to lock in the Coquina clutch when Stephanie announces that is enough as HHH steps in himself dragging Joe off of Seth Rollins and telling the World champion to back away. Samoa Joe gets right in HHH's face before heading off to the back as HHH goes to check on Seth Rollins as Joe stares down at his challenger as we go to an ad break.

    We come back from an ad break as the World champion is storming through the back in a bad mood when two of the last people he would want to see appear from around the corner as Kofi Kingston and Big E can be seen talking. Joe gives them a scowl before telling them to move before he makes them move. Kofi and Big E throw up their hands faking being scared as Kofi mentions Joe's comments a few months ago when he had the World title match about his friends holding him back but that did not stop Big E last week. Joe gives Kofi a glare saying since you are not going to be ringside how about you face me one more time tonight and then maybe at the Royal Rumble Big E will have to fight the whole club all by himself. Kofi agrees to the match promising to follow in Big E's footsteps and be the second person to beat you on Monday Night Raw. Big E tells Kofi that he wants to be at ringside with him for the match but Kofi tells his friend that he knows how much winning the US title means telling his friend to for once focus on that and I will handle Joe. Big E asks what should he do if the Club come out? Kofi tells him he will fight them by himself if has to as he does not want to endanger his partner's chances at the US title. Both men hug each other as we cut to the ring for the first match of the night.

    Match 1: Paige vs Summer Rae

    Both women from the start of the match attack the other with the bout turning into an all out brawl and both of them tumble out of the ring as they start to fight outside the ring. The ref starts to count to 10 but Paige and Summer are paying very little attention to it as they head off up the ramp as the ref reaches ten leading to a double countout in our first match of the night.

    Winner: Double count out (2:10)

    We follow them both as they go through the backstage area fighting each other as Paige grabs Summer and sends her flying into a wall. However before much else can be done Summer sends Paige crashing through a door into a room where we can see Mick Foley, HHH and Stephanie McMahon having a heated debate. They turn around to see what is going on telling both women to stop but they are so focused on destroying the other that they do not even hear any of them forcing HHH and Foley to grab one each to end the fight. Stephaine tells both women if you want to destroy each other so bad then on the Royal Rumble pre-show you will face each other in a No DQ No Countouts match and you can let your anger out there before banning them from psychical contact with each other for the rest of the night or they will be fired!

    We cut to the backstage area as we can see all 3 members of the Hype Bros standing together looking in a super jovial mood. They state at the Royal Rumble pre-show they will show exactly why they have been tag team champions in the past and now they are more experienced then they used to be and will show the Rhodes Scholars they don't just get hyped they stayed hyped. Mojo jumps around lets us know later on tonight he takes on Sandow and will show that whichever one of the 3 Rhodes Scholars face they will lose to bro. Mojo heads off as Hawkins quietly mentions to Ryder that he knows that we are facing Rhodes Scholars. Ryder laughs it off as Mojo goofing off as they head off through the back.

    The Hype Bros do their usual entrance as they get to the ring as Hawkins and Ryder wait for their opponents as Darren Young makes his way out to the ring with a microphone in hand. He tells the crowd that the Hype Bros should have their title match taken away from them for injuring his partner and friend Titus O'Neil. He says however he found a partner to help him teach the Hype Bros to Bo-leieve. Hype Bros stands in the ring and laugh as we get ready for this encounter.

    Match 2: Hype Bros w/Mojo Rawley vs Bo Dallas and Darren Young

    The Hype Bros here control the match with Darren Young not meshing that well with Bo Dallas as Hawkins and Ryder show us how well they work as a team and end up picking up the win with double elbow drops to Bo Dallas and Darren Young for the win.

    Winners via pinfall: Hype Bros (8:42)

    After the match has finished Hype Bros stand in the ring as Ryder tells the crowd that at the Royal Rumble they will fist bump the faces of the Rhodes Scholars WOO WOO YOU KNOW IT! However before they leave Mojo tells Darren Young who is heading to the back that if he wants a piece of the Hype Bros he will be glad to face him on Main Event. We then cut to an ad break before the next segment.

    We cut to the as Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar make their way to the ring to mostly pops for the Beast Incarnate as he makes his way into the ring with his advocate Paul Heyman smirking. Paul Heyman starts off by telling the crowd that in 2 weeks time his client will go into the Rumble and walk out of the Rumble as the winner. Heyman then starts to talk about the World champion Samoa Joe as the crowd cheer at the idea of that dream match or how about he once again destroys Dean Ambrose. He then says it does not matter who his client picks as they will be going to SUPLEX CITY and the beast incarnate BROCK LESNAR will destroy them. However as they go to leave Cesaro's music hits to a pop from the crowd as Paul Heyman looks a bit shocked and confused whilst Lesnar stands there unfazed.

    Cesaro walks to the ring as Heyman asks what Cesaro is doing out here and Cesaro says he wanted to speak face to face with the man, the beast, Brock Lesnar. Paul Heyman repeats what he said in the past that someday Cesaro will be ready and he will be glad to be his manager, his teacher once again in the future but right now? He is not on Brock's level heck he is not on Roman Reigns's or Samoa Joe's level. He is great but not as good as them before telling Cesaro he will get there very soon but right now he should stay out of Brock Lesnar's way if he wants to make it there. These comments gets heat form the crowd especially the praise for Roman but Heyman tells the crowd he is just trying to help Cesaro and not give him false hope like the fans do. Cesaro smirks saying he likes a challenge before asking Heyman for a match with Brock Lesnar. Heyman however gives Cesaro a look before saying his cilent has a Rumble to prepare for and will decline Cesaro's challenge for the moment as he leaves with Brock Lesnar as Cesaro stays there annoyed at not get what he wants whilst Brock laughs as he heads to the back.

    Match 3: Braun Strowman vs Cody Rhodes w/Damien Sandow

    Braun Strowman takes on Cody Rhodes here as Cody looks to attempt to gain a measure of payback against the Monster among men. However the monster is too strong for Cody who in the end gets overpowered by Strowman who puts him away with his running powerslam and picks up another big win as he charges onwards towards the rumble.

    Winner via pinfall: Braun Strowman (12:19)

    After the match Damien Sandow climbs into the ring ready to fight Strowman but for once Strowman seems finished with the tag team champions and leaves them be as he heads to the back as Sandow makes sure his partner is OK.

    We cut elsewhere backstage to see Bayley is backstage talking to a worker when Emma and Dana Brookes walk up to her. Bayley seems a bit worried as they walk up to her but Emma tells Bayley they come in peace as Dana has some friendly advice for her as someone who was once being used by someone claiming to be a friend.

    Bayley says Sasha is her friend and whilst she can be a bit cocky she is still her best friend. Emma rolls her eyes and says she tried to warn Bayley of this in NXT but you are too soft. Dana tells Bayley that on the main roster she needs to learn that playtime is over. Bayley tells them they can leave now with Emma saying she told Dana that Bayley is still the same naive girl from NXT, Bayley spins Emma round and slaps her in the face before walking clearly unhappy at what Emma said to her. Emma holds her face looking annoyed at Bayley for slapping her as Dana goes to attack Bayley as she leaves but Emma holds her partner back saying I can handle this.

    Match 4: Samoa Joe vs Kofi Kingston

    Kofi Kingston takes on Samoa Joe in a re-match from Survivor Series as Kofi looks to this time overcome the World champion and defeat him like his tag team partner Big E managed to achieve last week. However Kofi uses his speed to try to defeat Samoa Joe but in the end Joe is too much and he puts away Kofi with a muscle buster for the 3 count. However as soon as the match finishes The Club's music hits to heat from the crowd.

    Winner via pinfall: Samoa Joe (17:21)

    Kofi Kingston slowly gets up as The Club start to make their way down to the ring. Finn has a stare down with Samoa Joe as both men know each other very well from their time in NXT. However Samoa Joe goes on past as the Club start to surround the ring as Kofi Kingston starts to rise to his feet and sees the situation he is in for getting ready to fight. Luke Gallows is on the side of the ring and Kofi jumps over the top rope hitting Gallows with a crossbody taking out one member of the Club first.

    Kofi gets up after having taken one member of the Club down as we see Karl Anderson charging after him but Kofi is able to dodge him before hitting him in the face with Trouble in Paradise as Kofi is some how putting up a fight here against the Club. However as Kofi gets up after hitting the Trouble in Paradise when Finn grabs him from behind and hits him with 1916 on the outside. Finn then gets his boys to rise to their feet as they start to beat down on Kofi using the 3 on 1 disadvantage shouting to Woods and Big E daring them to come out. We cut to Big E backstage with Woods as he looks like he is going to storm down to the ring when Woods grabs him and tells him to stop. Big E says he is going to help Kofi however Woods tells him you remember what Kofi said? Big E says yeah with Woods telling him that Kofi told you to focus on the US title match tonight saying Kofi told me to stop you from doing something stupid. Big E looks annoyed but listens to Woods but not before punching a wall frustrated that he has been told to not help his friend even if it was his friends wishes. Meanwhile back in the ring Finn sets Kofi up before hitting a Coup D'grace for good measure as the Club leave Kofi laying.

    We see Bayley heading through the backstage area. She seems to still not be in a good mood when Natayla walks into shot and tells Bayley it is a joke. Bayley questions what she is on about? Natayla says it is a joke someone like you is in the ladder match to make history whilst me a Hart is on the sideline. Bayley says that is she won more maybe she would be in the match. This makes her annoyed before challenging Bayley to a match on Main event promising to destroy the silly little girl. Bayley at this point says you are on before storming off clearly not happy to keep being told she is a silly naive little girl.

    Match 5: Becky Lynch and Nikki Bella vs Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss

    Becky Lynch teams up with Nikki Bella as they take on Sasha and Bliss here with neither team getting on too well with each other knowing in 2 weeks time they will be facing each other in a ladder match for the Women's title. In the end however the heels pick up the win with Bliss using Sasha's title to knock out Nikki whilst Sasha distracts the referee. Sasha then takes care of Becky as Bliss makes the cover and picks up the win.

    Winners via submission: Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss (9:02)

    Alexa Bliss after the match holds the Women's title staring at it longingly after the match when Sasha Banks comes back onto the scene and snatches the title back holding it in the air daring Bliss to try to take this as both women stare the other down whilst Nikki Bella and Becky Lynch recover on the outside as we cut to an ad break.

    We come back from the ad break with Seth Rollins walking when he is sneak attacked by Samoa Joe who goes after his leg. He asks where is HHH to protect him now as Rollins writhes around in pain. However before he can do anything else HHH with security comes round the corner. He tells the World champion to leave the arena before he suspends him. Samoa Joe smirks walking off after giving HHH a stare down as HHH attends to Seth Rollins making sure he is OK.

    Match 6: Hideo Itami vs Shinsuke Nakamura

    Hideo Itami makes his way out to the ring for the match and waits in the ring as Shinsuke Nakamura makes his entrance to the ring. He comes down to the ring doing his usual antics and poses as he heads to ringside. Hideo is clearly not a fan of this telling him to hurry up. However as Shinsuke gets in the ring Hideo tells him to stop posing before turning around not paying full attention as the ref has rung the bell. Hideo then turns around and gets a Kinsaha to the face stunning him. Shinsuke makes the cover and gets the 3 count stunning Hideo Itami!!! He then poses for the crowd after beating Hideo in an insanely quick time!

    Winner via pinfall: Shinsuke Nakamura (0:13)

    Shinsuke celebrates in the ring delighted with the win as he poses for the crowd as Hideo wakes up realising he just got beaten in under 15 seconds here in this encounter. He attacks Shinsuke from behind as he is celebrating which gets boos from the crowd but Hideo does not seem to care. He grabs a hold of Shinsuke Nakamura before hitting him with the GTS laying out Shinsuke. He goes to leave as he hears the CM Punk chants from the crowd before shouting you want to chant his name? Fine. He slides back into the ring before grabbing a hold of Shinsuke before hitting another GTS. He then stands in the ring soaking in the boos as he heads to the back with an angry scowl on his face.

    We see him head through the back when Charly Caruso chases after him asking why he just did what he did. Hideo says he has not been shown the respect he deserves and it had made him make mistakes. He let Shinsuke's antics make him lose focus so he taught him a lesson and showed him that I am the true star from Japan before he stole the spotlight with his stupid antics. Maybe he will learn respect and not goof about in the ring after I left him in the ring out cold. He says his actions tonight prove why he is going onto win the Royal Rumble and main event Wrestlemania as now he no longer cares about these stupid fans. He says they stupid fans chant the name of someone who left them as I hit the move I invented and which some Punk stole from me! Hideo says well now I will destroy the men they show respect to and win the Rumble as he storms off through the back.

    After that interview we see HHH and Seth Rollins backstage in the medical room as they go over Seth Rollins's knee seeing how he is. He says he feels fine but HHH tells him to make sure he is fine as he has a World title match in 2 weeks. Rollins says he will beat Joe with a fully healed knee or without it. HHH tells him that when he picked out of the SHIELD he picked Rollins as he was smart and knew when to pick his battles. Rollins questions if HHH is telling him to not fight Samoa Joe however HHH says that is not what he meant. He tells Seth that what he meant was you need to pick when you play with Joe as he brought that beast into NXT because of how destructive he is but he is uncontrollable. He says he has faith that Rollins will get the job done Sunday but offers to be ringside with him. Rollins however tells HHH that is not needed and he will get the job done. HHH for a second looks angry with being turned down but then puts on a smile saying this is why he picked him before hugging Rollins and leaving him to be checked over.

    Match 7: Mojo Rawley w/ Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins vs Damien Sandow w/ Cody Rhodes

    Mojo Rawley takes on Damien Sandow in a decent match with Mojo in control for a good portion of it using his excitement and general hyped up attitude. The Hype Bros and Cody Rhodes sit on commentary discussing the match with both teams showing respect to each other though both make it clear during the match that respect will go out the window as it will be all about the tag team titles. Damien Sandow outsmarts Mojo during the match by riding the wave in the early portion of the match before putting away Mojo Rawley with You're welcome to pick up the win.

    Winner via pinfall: Damien Sandow (9:21)

    After the match finishes Sandow celebrates as the Hype Bros head to the ring and check on Mojo Rawley. Cody Rhodes comes down to the ring as both men hold their tag team titles in the air. The Hype Bros stare them down saying they will fist bump their faces in two weeks time before offering to shake hands with the Rhodes Scholars. They think about this for a few seconds before agreeing to the handshake as we cut to an ad break.

    We come back from the ad break as we can see Chris Jericho stand backstage as he talks into the camera. He says that throughout the years he has done many many things. He has won multiple IC titles, tag team titles, he was the first undisputed WWE champion, he made the list but one thing he has never EVER managed to do is win the Royal Rumble. He declares that not only will we be getting the gift of Jericho in 2 weeks time during the Royal Rumble but he will go onto win the Royal Rumble and main event Wrestlemania.

    Match 8: Mark Henry w/ Big Show vs Wade Barrett w/ Nick Aldis

    Mark Henry here takes on Wade Barrett who tries to keep up with the power of Mark Henry as both men battle in preparation for the rumble. Big Show is at ringside as is Wade Barett's partner Nick Aldis. The finish comes when the ref gets distracted by Nick Alids and Big Show fighting at ringside allowing Barrett to get a pair of brass kunckles out of his trunks and hits Mark Henry in the face with them before deposing of them and making the cover picking up a big win en-route to the Royal Rumble.

    Winner via pinfall: Wade Barrett (9:15)

    Roman Reigns is shown backstage in a pre-recorded segment as he tells the crowd he is sick of being forced to wait for what should belong to him and that is the main event. He says he wasted too much time caring what they thought of him. He says they ruined his moment due to jealously. However he will use that hatred they have for him to drive him as he has something a lot of people in the match don't. I know how to win the Royal Rumble and I will do so once again BELEIVE DAT!

    Meanwhile we cut backstage as the Club are laughing with each other boasting about the attack on Kofi Kingston earlier on in the show as they start to discuss ways they could mess with Big E tonight when Mick Foley walks into the room. He tells them you guys can go home telling them whilst he ruled that no one would be allowed at ringside he knows what the Club are like bending the rules so is sending them home to be safe. Finn shrugs his shoulders saying they can wait a week before giving Big E a beating like they gave Kofi Kingston. Anderson and Gallows laugh as well as they brush past Foley who has a serious look on his face.

    Main Event: US title match: Rusev (c) vs Big E (everyone banned from ringside)

    Big E and Rusev take each other on in a battle between two of the stronger members of the Raw roster as Big E is showing a lot of fire as he knows how big this match for the US title is for him as well as being wound up with the events that transpired earlier in the show and been told not to help. Both men put on a good showing however towards the end of the match Rusev has the accolade locked in. However Big E fights and fights makes it to the ropes forcing a break. Rusev holds on for a 4 count before letting go. He starts boasting and mocking Big E however as he is doing this suddenly a familiar music plays:
    Spoiler:








    Rusev looks up at the screen confused as he shouts you stupid American daring Angle to come down and get himself suspended but no one comes out as the music keeps playing. Rusev then turns around shouting that Angle must be a coward however Big E grabs Rusev and hits him with the BIG ENDING!!! Big E makes the cover as the crowd pops!! 1 2 3 BIG E HAS WON THE US TITLE!
    Winner via pinfall and New US champion: Big E (17:45)

    Big E does not stay in the ring too long but does a dance with his pelvis like usual on the ramp however this time with the US title around his waist as he celebrates before heading towards the fans celebrating with them as the crowd cheer for one third of the new day winning his first US title. In the ring Rusev comes to and is going mental after what happened arguing with the ref. However as this is going on we cut to the production truck to see someone gets slipped some dollar bills with the camera panning up to see Shelton Benjamin thanking him for that favour. We then cut back to the ring as Big E is joined by his fellow New Day teammates who help him celebrate whilst Rusev throws a tantrum in the ring as Raw comes to an end.

    SD Live Re: WWE: A different future



    January 3rd

    The show starts off with the usual entrance package. We then get the commentary team who tell us the main event will be a tag team triple threat with each member of the WWE title match at the rumble picking a partner to team with tonight. We then pan to the arena as we hear a gong sound go off before hearing a massive pop from the crowd as the Deadman makes his way to the ring. The commentary team mention we have not seen him since his lost to AJ Styles at TLC and wonders how the deadman is feeling ahead of the rumble? Booker T says the deadman seemed to have lost a step in that match and did not seem to be the same deadman he faced in the past with JBL chiming in and agreeing even a being like Undertaker can feel the passage of time take affect but warns he is still the Phenom and a dangerous threat to most stars in the WWE.

    Undertaker once in the ring waits for the crowd to die down a bit before speaking. He declares that AJ Styles may have been able to defeat him at TLC but he is still the Phenom of the WWE but time is running out for him. The crowd boo this but Undertaker says even a being like himself falls to the ravages of time. He says however at the Royal Rumble the deadman will rise once again and 29 souls will REST IN PEACE! However before he can leave a familiar music hits as the Wyatt Family make their way out.

    The Wyatts head down to the ring as Bray tells the Undertaker that his time is already up as there is a new face of fear and heck look at your brother and who he sides with. Kane then speaks telling Undertaker he has found the one true dark master and that his brother should rejoin him so they can cause destruction once again together before finding their final resting place. Undertaker tells his brother no and says Bray is a false idol promising to take him down as he punches Bray in the face. This causes the other 3 members of the Wyatts to beat down Undertaker as Bray rubs his jaw laughing.

    It is turning into a mugging as try as he might the Undertaker is unable to fight off 3 men at once however as Kane lifts up Undertaker for a chokeslam American Alpha make their way down to the ring to a pop from the crowd with tag team titles around their waist. They take down Kane and Rowan with suplexs however as they turn around as Bray and Harper take down the pairing as the numbers game proves to be too much and they fall at the feet of Bray and Harper. Bray then grabs the microphone promising the Wyatts will not just take the tag team titles but he will win the rumble before shouting FOLLOW THE BUZZARDS.

    Match 1: Tommasa Cimapa vs RVD

    Tommasa Cimapa takes on RVD in a great match as Cimapa shows off his skills but his cockiness and temper gets the better of him as the experienced RVD is able to take advantage of this and hits Cimapa with the 5 star frog splash picking up the win in this encounter.

    Winner via pinfall: RVD (12:16)

    We cut backstage to see Neville walking through the back when he bumps into the WWE champion Dean Ambrose. He asks Ambrose how he is and Ambrose says annoyed if I am honest. Neville says he feels the same. Ambrose then tells Neville that he knows he will get the Cruiserweight title back from Kidd. Neville says he has beaten Kidd before and will do so again but right now his focus is on winning the Rumble and who knows maybe he will take down the kingpin at WM? Ambrose smirks saying he would be glad to face Neville one more time but for now he is focusing on that phoney John Cena and Baron Corbin. Neville warns him he may have bite off more then he can chew by taking them both on but Ambrose tells him he knows the risk but he wanted a piece of them at the same and the easiest way to do that was to defeat them both at once before telling Neville he did not come here to do things safely. He then asks him if he wants to team up with him for the main event tonight. Neville agrees saying he loves a good battle and it will be a good warm up for the rumble shaking Ambrose's hand.

    Match 2: Kalisto vs Johnny Gargano

    Kalisto is taking on Johnny Gargano in a fun battle as Kalisto looks to carry on his wins in recent weeks and his new attitude seems to work well however as Kalisto is going for the Salida del sol Gargano counters it into the Hurts donut and gets the 3 count here as he builds up some momentum heading into the Rumble.

    Winner via pinfall: Johnny Gargano (9:36)

    Post-match Cimapa can be seen backstage watching the match on the TV and upon seeing Gargano win he loses it and sends the TV crashing to the ground before storming off in a rage clearly angry that Gargano won whilst he lost tonight.

    We come back from an ad break as we see Tyson Kidd and The Usos make their way to the ring. They get in the ring to boos as the Usos mock the crowd oh we show our real attitude and now you boo us? See what I mean Jey. Jimmy says they made a mistake ever appealing to them and they should have been looking out for themselves all along. Kidd says for too long he was focused on the fans as well but then he broke his neck and thought he would never wrestle again. Where were these fans? They were cheering for the man who broke my neck Samoa Joe that is where! FACT! However I fought back whilst ignoring these morons and look where I am now? By doing what I want and looking after myself I became Cruiserweight champion. I did not act like gentleman like a certain number one contender does before daring him to make his way out with his friends right now.

    As Kidd says this the Gentleman society make their way out to the ring to a pop from the crowd. The Gentleman society step in the ring as they stare down Kidd and the Usos before Gallagher speaks. He tells Kidd that unlike Kidd he likes to act with a certain level of respect towards people and he would not sneak attack someone like Kidd does. He says if Kidd had a problem he should have called him to the ring. Aiden English then asks Gallagher for the microphone before he tells the Usos that they want the tag team division on lock then they have to go through them challenging the pair to a match on the rumble pre-show.

    The Usos tell the pair they are on but it not going to be some gentlemanly battle promising to beat them down and show why this division is ours! Simon Gotch however says he is not someone to stand around and throws the first punch starting a fight between the groups. It ends with the 3 man unit of the Gentleman society standing tall in the ring as Gallagher indicates he is coming for the belt pointing at Tyson Kidd with his umbrella.

    Match 3: No DQ match: Kevin Owens vs Randy Orton

    Kevin Owens here takes on Randy Orton as Orton looks for payback against Owens in an incredible encounter however in the end Orton is able to escape from the pop-up powerbomb hitting Owens with a RKO on the outside before rolling him into the ring and hitting him with a second one for the 3 count gaining some massive momentum heading into the rumble.

    Winner via pinfall: Randy Orton (15:16)

    We cut to a backstage segment with the Miz talking to Maryse and saying it will be awesome when he wins the Rumble. He then goes on a rant about Bryan when Maryse asks for him to turn around. Miz tells her he does not care if it is Bryan as he would say this stuff to his face however he turns around to see Baron Corbin stood there. Baron Corbin tells The Miz he needs a partner tonight and you are going to be it mentioning what Ambrose did last week. Miz seems a bit intimated agreeing to team with Corbin as Corbin tells him to follow his lead before walking off as The Miz looks like he does not want to cross Corbin as he grips on tight to his IC title.

    Daniel Bryan is shown backstage talking with Shane McMahon when he announces next week he will be drawing who gets the number 30 for the Royal Rumble from Smackdown Live. Bryan then tells Shane that Miz's comments are just The Miz running his mouth and not to worry about it as he has everything under control.

    AJ Styles makes his way to the ring grabbing a microphone with a cocky smirk on his face. He tells the crowd that earlier on tonight we saw the Deadman make his first appearance since AJ Styles beat him and showed that he is now the Guard who protects the yard. AJ mentions the fact he has beaten the biggest names in the company and at the Royal Rumble he will go on to win the Rumble topping off an amazing year in the company saying not many could ever achieve what he did so early in his career. However before he can carry on Sheamus makes his way out to a mixed reaction.

    Sheamus tells AJ that he is impressed with the fella since he has had such a great debut year what with winning the WWE title... oh wait you did not do that in your debut year like I did! Styles quips back that he beat Cena in the ring twice whilst against Cena tripped and fell through a table when he won the WWE title for the first time. He then calls Sheamus a flash in the pan whose career is dwindling down whilst he is going to be the champ who runs the camp very soon. However as AJ is boasting Sheamus challenges him to a match right now. AJ declines saying he will be glad to face him next week as these people here do not deserve to see that match leaving the ring as the crowd boo him for delaying the match till next week.

    We cut to Zack Sabre Jr backstage as he can be seen listening to music when John Cena walks into the room. Zack takes his headphones out before asking what brings him here. Cena says he needs a partner for tonight and Bryan has been talking about how good you are so did you want to be my partner tonight. Sabre says he is always up for having a match before shaking Cena's hand as we can see The Miz listening in the doorway to this conversation as we can see him walking off saying even more proof of Bryan's bias.

    Match 4: Blood Warriors vs Nese and Gulak

    The Blood Warriors make their way out to the ring as Akira Tozawa looks to pick up a win with his partner ahead of the Rumble. They team up to take on Nese and Gulak with Akira picking up the pinfall with his diving senton in a fun match.

    Winners via pinfall: Blood Warriors (10:00)

    We can see Rich Swann dancing backstage and having fun when he accidentally bumps into TJP as he is dancing backstage. TJP tells Rich Swann to watch where he is going with Swann saying sorry. TJP invites his former friend to a match on Main Event so he can teach him a lesson and prove why he should be competing for the cruiserweight title. Rich smirks saying that is fine as on Main Event I will prove you can't handle this as he dances off leaving the cocky TJP glaring at him as he leaves.

    Main Event: Dean Ambrose and Neville vs Baron Corbin and The Miz vs John Cena and Zack Sabre Jr

    This ends up being a fun chaotic main event with all 6 men getting to show why they are key players on Smackdown live. Key notes from the match is The Miz seems to be personally attacking Zack Sabre Jr taking the comments Cena said earlier on as an excuse to try to destroy the cruiserweight and towards the end of the match, Corbin and Ambrose on the outside end up brawling through the crowd and into the back leaving their partners high and dry. Zack Sabre is able to take care of the Miz whilst Cena dodges a red arrow from Neville before lifting him up and connects with an AA before making the cover earning the win for their team in this match. Sabre and Cena shake hands after the match having worked well as a team together whilst The Miz heads up the ramp sulking.

    Winners via pinfall: John Cena and Zack Sabre Jr (21:02)

    We cut from the ring as we can see Corbin and Ambrose still battling backstage trying to destroy each other once and for all here. Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon follow after them trying to stop them numerous times. They both tell the pair to stop before grabbing a hold of one of them each before telling the pair they can fight each other next week if they want to brawl so bad as Smackdown ends with both men still try to get at each other whilst Shane and Bryan hold the pair back from each other.

    Raw Re: WWE: A different future




    January 9th:

    Monday Night Raw starts off with the New Day's music hitting to a pop from the crowd. Big E dances on the ramp as Kofi joins in the celebrations whilst Xaiver Woods with one hand tries to play the trumpet but seems to not be having much luck as the New Day make their way to the ring. They wait for the crowd to die down before Big E tells the crowd look at your new UNITED STATES CHAMPION whilst doing the pelvic thrust dance with the title around his waist. Kofi however says to his partner softly I think it needs some work.

    Big E says that will come but right now he wants to celebrate becoming US champion last week. He mentions the fact that Rusev did take his eye off the ball but he will be glad to face him right now for this title and he will beat him one more time baby. However it is not Rusev and Lana who come out but the Club who make their way to the ring to heat from the crowd as they look to interrupt the celebration.

    The Club head to the ring as Kofi and Big E get ready for a fight protecting their partner Woods knowing he will be unable to fight with his hand in a cast at the moment. Finn can be seen eyeing up the US title that Big E is holding. He tells Big E congratulations on your victory however enjoy that whilst it lasts because this Sunday you guys will end up like your pal Xaiver Woods. Woods at this point seems so annoyed he tries to break past his friends to attack Balor but they hold Woods back knowing he could make his injuries much worse.

    Big E warns the Club that whilst he is in a good mood that will not stop him beating the hell out of the Club right now. Both teams edge forward with Kofi telling Woods to leave the ring for his safety however before anything can kick off Rusev's music hits to heat from the crowd as him and Lana look very very annoyed.

    Rusev tells Big E he is a fraud and is only holding his US title due to Shelton Benjamin and promises to take back his title right now and then go onto crush Shelton Benjamin, Rusev then tells Finn to leave the ring right now. The Club leader chooses to head to the outside listening to Rusev not wanting to pick a fight right now with him as we seem to be getting a US title match right now to start the show.

    Match 1: US title match: Big E (c) w/ Kofi Kingston and Xaiver Woods vs Rusev w/ Lana and The Club

    This match does not last long with Kofi getting into at ringside with the Club causing the brawl to spill into the ring. As this is happening Shelton Benjamin makes his way out distracting Rusev who goes after him whilst Big E starts to fight the Club. The ref rings the bell calling this a no contest.

    Winner: No contest (3:35)

    The match has just broken out into a mass brawl as we see Shelton and Rusev end up going over the barricade heading into the crowd as they throw right hands at each other. The situation though gets evened up as Sami Zayn music hits and he comes out. He connects with a kick to the head of Finn as he starts to battle with the leader of the Club. Meanwhile with the fight being evened up the New Day are able to fight off the Club and seem to be getting the upper hand when...

    Samoa Joe's music hits to heat from the crowd as the World champion storms down to the ring and makes a beeline going for Big E clearly still annoyed by the loss he suffered to the US champion the other week. He starts hitting him with rights which allows Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson to keep double teaming Kofi Kingston. However before too much damage can be done we hear Seth Rollins music as he makes his way down to the ring and jumps on Joe back him taking down the monster. Zayn meanwhile gets thrown into the steel steps as the ringside area turns into carnage.

    At this point HHH's music hits as he tells all 8 men to stop this right now which causes them to turn around as HHH tells them he will not let this show descend into chaos now he is co-GM just because Mick Foley cannot keep you guys under control. He tells all 8 men in the ring they will all be in the main event as well as Rusev and Shelton Benjamin as it will be The Club, World Champion Samoa Joe and Rusev vs The New Day, Sami Zayn, Shelton Benjamin and Seth Rollins! All the men stare each other down with Joe getting right in Rollins face telling him his dad just saved him from being destroyed as Raw goes to an ad break.

    We come back from the ad break as we can see Rusev and Shelton Benjmain have seen to have ended up in the concessions area where Mick Foley has caught up with them trying to pull them apart as Lana cheers her husband on. He finally gets them off each other and tells them they are banned from contact with each other till the main event as Lana leads Rusev off as Rusev makes a dig about Kurt Angle being unable to fight. Shelton goes to hit Rusev again but Foley grabs him pulling him back and tells him he is lucky he is not suspended for what he pulled last week.

    Shelton defends his actions by saying you said no one was allowed at ringside and he never went to the ring just played the theme of a good friend of his to remind the people what they are missing and after what Rusev has done to him it was the least he owed him for the damage he has caused to his and Angle's career. Foley says h eknows what vengeance can do to a person and tells Shelton to leave before he changes his mind.

    As Mick Foley goes to walk off shaking his head HHH appears in his suit having just come from the ringside area. HHH tells Foley is this the kind of ship he is running? Foley tries to argue that occasionally superstars get a little heated but HHH is not having that saying what happened out there is in no way best for business and tells Foley that he trusts him so little he wants to make sure the World title match goes off without a hitch putting himself at ringside. Foley goes to argue this mentioning his relationship with Rollins but HHH tells Mick Foley he is doing what is best for business.

    Match 2: Nikki Bella vs Natayla

    Nikki Bella takes on Natayla in a good match as Nikki Bella looks to prepare for the ladder match this Sunday and pick up the win. She is able to put Natayla away with the Rack attack for the 3 count picking up a big win here. After the match Nikki grabs a microphone and tells the crowd that she has spend nearly a year recovering from injury but now she is going to reach the top of the women's division once again and take the Women's title!

    Winner via pinfall: Nikki Bella (7:11)

    We cut backstage where we can see the New Day are in their locker room as Big E can be seen admiring his US title as they talk about how proud they are of their boy. Woods then says they need to come up with a plan for Sunday as Kofi and Big E are at a disadvantage. Big E smirks saying they will just show The Club that new Day rocks New Day rocks. Kofi laughs before joining in even getting Woods to join in.

    When we come back from the ad break we can see Summer Rae making her way to the ring. She has a cocky smirk as the crowd reign down heat on her but she seems to be enjoying it more then anything. She says she missed the attention and the spotlight saying she was lay dormant for too long and on Sunday not just Paige but the whole women's division will see how much of a danger I am to them.

    Paige however comes out at this point and tells the crowd as much as she would love to talk she just wants to fight before charging down the ring. Summer teases fighting Paige but slides out of the ring mocking her. However Paige climbs to the top turnbuckle before diving onto the cocky Summer Rae beating her down. She then picks Summer up before connecting with the Ram-paige leaving Summer laid out on the outside. Paige stands tall over Summer before saying that is just a taste of what is to come before shouting THIS IS MY HOUSE at the fallen Summer Rae.

    Match 3: Bayley vs Emma

    Bayley faces off against Emma after her comment to her last week and seems super fired up at the start of the match putting a lot of pressure onto Emma. However after the first few minutes Sasha Banks makes her way out to the ring. She cheers on Bayley though Bayley seems unsure why she is out there. Towards the end Sasha tries to get involved and slips Bayley a chair though Bayley kicks it away telling Sasha she wants to win the right way. As she turns around Emma though takes advantage of this spinning Bayley round hitting her with a Michinoku Driver making the cover as she stares at a remorseless Sasha who stands on the outside annoyed at what just happened.

    Winner via pinfall: Emma (8:30)

    Emma heads to the back with a cocky smirk as she lets Sasha know that she is coming for her title. Meanwhile in the ring Bayley and Sasha Banks start to argue with each other in the ring before they start to head to back. Corey Graves, Michael Cole and Enzo Amore then hype up that next we will be seeing a pre-recorded interview with the King of Strong Style Shinsuke Nakamura.

    Michael Cole welcomes Shinsuke who shakes Cole' hands before taking a seat. Micheal Cole asks him how he feels since debuting on Monday Night Raw. Shinsuke smirks telling Cole he is having fun and enjoying the challenge that Monday Night Raw brings. Cole asks him about his time in Japan with Shinsuke talking about how he achieved all he wanted at a young age but he always wanted to learn more and get better heading to countries like Brazil, Mexico and Russia. Shinsuke even mentions that he has trained in Brock Lesnar's personal gym and faced the beast before in his native land calling it a fun test.

    Michael Cole asks Shinsuke about this and Shinsuke says he learned from the best himself and a lot of his strength comes from learning from the Beast's gym before saying he has beaten Brock and would beat him again. Cole then asks why Shinsuke has the nickname the King of Strong Style. Shinsuke smirks saying he got it due to his MMA past and his ability to take people's heads off with his kicks. He says his time in Mexico taught him how to have fun but he learned in Japan how to kick people's heads off. Cole then says maybe Hideo has an issue with the nickname due to he himself liking to use a lot of kicks himself. Shinsuke expression changes from a smile to anger.

    Shinsuke says he has something to say personally to Hideo in his native tongue before giving Cole an ominous stare down an complete opposite to his normal mood. Michael takes this as a cue to leave Shinsuke as he stares at the camera. He tells Hideo in Japanese as subtitles come on the screen that last week you jumped me because you could not handle defeat. You want people to respect you? You want to prove you are the best from Japan? You let your bitterness consume you due to your bodies own failures. He warns Hideo he will be glad to show why he is the king of strong style and this time it won't be a CM Punk chant getting to you but me kicking your head off. I was an icon in Japan and main evented the biggest shows their like Wrestle Kingdom. You never got the spotlight in Japan maybe why you feel the need to demand respect whereas I have earned it. Shinsuke Nakamura then tells Hideo Itami he will see him at the Rumble before doing his usual taunt as the interview ends.

    We cut to the backstage area as we can see Bayley and Sasha Banks backstage arguing with each other as Bayley asking why Sasha tried to slide her a chair. Banks says she was just trying to help her friend but Bayley tells her she wants to win fair and square. Banks however tells Bayley and look where that got you? Bayley responds asking Banks if she is trying to undermine her because she is worried Bayley will beat her on Sunday. Sasha tells Bayley why would she be scared she has held the belt longer then Charlotte and will hold this belt till her career ends! Sasha then storms off calling Bayley naïve and maybe she ain't the friend Sasha thought Bayley was leaving Bayley stood there upset after the argument with her friend.

    Match 4: Hideo Itami vs Cedric Alexander

    Hideo Itami here takes on Cedric Alexander as Hideo looks to pick up some momentum heading into the rumble whilst Cedric looks to get back on traffic after a few losses in recent weeks including his match for the US title. Both men put on a good match with Hideo being very viscous and aggressive as the match goes on even nearly getting DQ'd during the encounter before in the end managing to escape an attempt at the Lumbar check into the GTS for the 3 count. After the match however Hideo refuses to have his arm raised and going off to the timekeeper's area to snatch a microphone from ringside.

    Winner via pinfall: Hideo Itami (13:28)

    Hideo Itami tells the crowd that he is the true star and that Shinsuke is a pretender to his throne before saying he has a personal message for him that is not for you people which gets heat from the crowd. Hideo tells Shinsuke in Japanese that he will beat the hell out of him anytime he dares step into the ring with him and last week was a fluke promising to show why you need to show me respect. He then throws the microphone to the ground before sliding in the ring and hitting Cedric who is starting to rise with a brutal knee strike to the head!!! The crowd boo Hideo for his cheap shot on Cedric Alexander as he heads to the back with a scowl on his face.

    The Club are shown backstage as it seems Finn has once again stole a camera off one of the backstage hands as he can be seen shouting abuse to someone off camera telling him he is borrowing it and take it up with HHH if he has a problem. Luke does a too sweet pose whilst turning the camera round to face him before Finn tells him to put him in focus as he has a message for the New Day and he wants them to hear the rock and rolla loud & clear.

    Finn says well done Big E last week as I am glad you have a some joy before the Club takes it away from you once again as this Sunday we will show why you made the biggest mistake of your careers trying to take us on 2 on 3. You should have played it smart as we are going to destroy you and show why I left a legacy in Japan. You were the top group in WWE but now? The Club is taking over and that is TOO SWEET! Finn then drops the camera to the ground smashing it. Cole questions whether he needs to do that but Graves says that is what rock stars do. Enzo says he regularly trashes hotel rooms but Graves fires back saying he said rock stars not trailer trash.

    Match 5: Rhodes Scholars and Hype Bros w/Mojo Rawley vs Shining Stars and The Ascension

    Rhodes Scholars and The Hype Bros team up before they face off against each on the pre-show here as they take on the Shining Stars and the Ascension here as both teams get to show off their skills though the match ends up lasting longer then normal due to the hype bros seemingly trying to show off and put off the Rhodes Scholars. In the end Rhodes Scholars takes out The Ascension whilst The Hype Bros hit the Shining stars with their Elbow drops finishers in stereo covering the shining stars to give them and their rivals the win.

    Winners via pinfall: Rhodes Scholars and Hype Bros (9:42)

    After the match the tag team champions slide into the ring holding their titles in the air before offering the Hype Bros a handshake as both teams stare each other down whilst Mojo Rawley acts goofy on the outside.

    We cut to Charly Caruso who can be seen interviewing Sami Zayn backstage and asks him how he feels going into the Rumble. Zayn tells Charly that he feels like he is this close to getting to where he wants to be. He mentions he managed to beat Owens at Summerslam, he came so close to beating Cesaro and was screwed by Finn but he knows he can get to the top and this Sunday he plans on winning the rumble. Then after that he has unfinished business with Finn and tonight he gets a chance to show him why he is ready to be the World champion. He says I had to do it the hard way in NXT before I got blind sided by my friend but now I have that monkey off my back I will win the Royal Rumble and win the World title at Wrestlemania.

    Match 6: Becky Lynch vs Alexa Bliss

    Becky Lynch here takes on Alexa Bliss once again as both women put on a decent showing however as the match goes on Sasha Banks makes her way out distracting Becky who starts to mouth off to her before getting rolled up by Alexa who steals the win!

    Winner via pinfall: Alexa Bliss (7:17)

    Alexa Bliss boasts after the match but as Sasha stands on the ramp getting ready to attack Bliss, Bayley appears as the two friends argue once again about what happened early on in the night. Both women seems to have calmed down though after talking the issue through. However in the ring Bliss is posing when Becky gets up and grabs a hold of Bliss before hitting her with the Bex-plex as she stands tall over Bliss. Outside the ring Bayley and Sasha stand on the ramp looking to go into the ring and attack Becky after Sasha convinces Bayley to follow him into the ring when Emma comes down to the ringside with a ladder in tow and takes down the pair!

    In the ring Becky stands tall ready to fight Emma however the 6th women in the match Nikki Bella makes her way into the ring taking Becky down with a wicked forearm however she gloats in the ring for too long as Emma makes her way into the ring hitting Nikki with the ladder before Emma places it down and climbs it posing over the other 5 women as maybe a sign of what is to come?

    After the ad break we hear Brock Lesnar's music hit to a pop from the crowd as he and his advocate Paul Heyman as they make their way to the ring as Paul Heyman has a cocky smirk on his face. Heyman tells the crowd he has been watching the talent on the shows the last few weeks and he has been keeping an eye on many many competitors in the WWE the last few weeks who are a part of the rumble.

    Legends like the Undertaker, Chris Jericho, Big Show, Rob Van Dam all men who have held the World title numerous times but all men who have fallen to the beast incarnate in the past and will lose to Brock. There is also new stars who have made their names in recent years like AJ Styles, Sami Zayn, Bray Wyatt, The Miz, Rusev, Roman Reigns and even a man he managed for a time Cesaro but no matter how good these men are and we are truly in a great age for talent no one can match up the once in a lifetime talent that is BROCK LESSSNAR.

    However before Paul Heyman can say anything else Roman Reigns's music hits to heat from the crowd. He has a cocky smirk on his face as he gets to the ring and steps in before staring down Brock Lesnar who looks like he wants a fight right now. Roman Reigns smirks before telling Paul that he was right I am great but Brock is not the once in the lifetime talent I AM!

    Reigns tells Paul that this is the Big Dawg's yard and he is taking the Rumble no matter how much these fans will whine and moan online when I do what I do and win BELIEVE DAT! However before he can say much else Lesnar attacks Reigns to a massive pop from the crowd as both men start to brawl. Heyman tries to convince his client to save himself for Sunday but Brock clearly has had enough of Reigns's big mouth, Suddenly we see Mick Foley come out with masses of security here. It takes 10 or 20 to try to get this under control but even then they cannot manage it as Lesnar and Reigns start to beat on the security as Graves and Enzo talk about who even has a chance of eliminating these two men as we cut to an ad break as Micheal Cole says we will try to get this situation back under control.

    We come back from the ad break as we see the security finally get the situation under control taking both men to the back during the ad break. We then cut elsewhere as see Seth Rollins getting ready for the main event when the game HHH walks into the room to a mixed reaction from the crowd.He asks how Seth is feeling and Seth tells HHH happy to get back to the top where he belongs this Sunday when he wins the World title and show why he is the future of the business. HHH asks about being at ringside and Seth says that he needs to beat Joe on his own and do what is best for business requesting HHH stays in the back during the match. HHH seems unsure but says he trust Seth but tells him not let him down as he walks off leaving Seth puzzled but he goes back to working out in preparation for not just the main event but for Sunday.

    Match 7: Cesaro and Chris Jericho vs The Mercenaries

    Cesaro and Jericho team up though they tease some tension during the start of this match due to their feud in summer however they work well together during the match and pick up the win with Cesaro hitting the Neaturaliser for the 3 count giving Jericho and Cesaro some momentum going into the rumble.

    Winners via pinfall: Chris Jericho and Cesaro (12:52)

    After the match Cesaro is in the ring as Jericho joins him in the ring and offers Cesaro a handshake which he agrees to. However when Cesaro pulls away Jericho does not let go as he hits Cesaro in the face with a codebreaker. He then leans over Cesaro telling the Swiss superman it is every man for himself on Sunday as the crowd give Jericho a mixed reaction for his “lesson” post-match.

    We cut to the back as we see Strowman walking through the back when he comes face to face with Samoa Joe with both men staring the other down before Strowman walks off. Mike Rome appears and asks Joe if he has time for an interview however Joe says he has over places to be so get out of my way brushing past Mike.

    Match 8: Big Show vs Darren Young

    Big Show here takes on Darren Young in a very very quick match as Darren Young gets put away as Show picks up a nice win as he gets ready for the Royal Rumble as Cole does the usual WHO CAN ELIMINATE THE BIG SHOW. Enzo responses if he was in the match he would find a way with Graves firing back he would love to watch Show destroy Enzo.

    Winner via pinfall: Big Show (01:49)

    Cesaro is backstage recovering from the code breaker looking a bit annoyed as he kicks over a chair saying something in German (why I am so stupid?) when Paul Heyman walks into the room to a mixed reaction from the crowd. Cesaro asks what Heyman wants but Heyman says he comes in peace to give him a warning. He tells Cesaro if he was his manager he would not have made that mistake but he is not ready just yet telling him to expect to be conquered at the Rumble and use Sunday as a learning experience for the future. Cesaro turns to Heyman saying I will see you at the Rumble and I am eliminating Brock Lesnar or I will die trying!

    Main Event: Seth Rollins, New Day, Shelton Benjamin and Sami Zayn vs Samoa Joe, The Club and Rusev

    A fun battle between 10 of the main wrestlers on the Monday Night Raw roster here as they all get some time in the ring though when we get to the finish it is Rusev and Shelton Benjamin who are the legal men.Samoa Joe and Seth Rollins have started fighting by the announce table whilst The Club have started to brawl with New Day and Sami Zayn. In the ring whilst this is going on Lana distracts the ref allowing Rusev to use a low blow before locking in the accolade on Shelton Benjmain which leads Rusev to pick up the submission win over Shelton Benjamin.

    Winners via submission: Samoa Joe, Rusev and The Club (20:58)

    After the match we see carnage starting to happen at the ringside whilst Rusev boasts in the ring as we end the show with Rusev standing tall whilst we cut to see Zayn battling Finn with in the crowd, TheClub battling with the New Day on the ramp and Seth Rollins brawling with Samoa Joe in the timekeepers area as HHH and Steph can be seen watching the monitor as they tell Foley this kind of chaos is why they needed to come back as the show comes to a close with it focusing on HHH's face as Monday Night Raw comes to a close.

    SD Live Re: WWE: A different future



    January 10th

    We cut to the ring to start off the show as we can see a ball drawer setup on the ramp as Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon stand by it as we cut to them to start the show off. Daniel Bryan welcomes everyone to Smackdown Live asking the crowd if they are excited for the Royal Rumble which gets a nice pop from the crowd. Shane then says that tonight we are going to draw out one of the 15 names on Smackdown Live to see who will be getting the coveted number 30 spot in the rumble.

    They spin the machine before Bryan reaches his hand into the drawer and picks out a ball. He then opens it up to reveal it is Rob Van Dam.His music hits to a pop from the crowd as the whole freakin show makes his way out to the ring. RVD is about to speak to the crowd when The Miz makes his way out to heat from the crowd as he has the IC title round his waist as usual front and centre flanked by his wife as they both look very annoyed.

    He gets in Bryan's face saying REALLY, REALLY, REALLY? A random draw? You just wanted to make sure I did not get the number 30 spot like I truly deserve for carrying this brand on my back as the A list star. Bryan tells Miz the draw was random and it was the only way Miz had a chance of getting the number 30 spot. Miz then asks Shane if he is going to stand for his GM showing bias against his roster members. Shane replies Bryan is doing a great job as GM and maybe if Miz did not keeps picking fights they would get along. Miz looks annoyed at this saying you guys cannot stand to see me succeed as well as the fans. You are all jealous of what I have had to overcome in my career to be this awesome. However before he can carry on ranting RVD interrupts.

    RVD tells the Miz if he wants the number 30 spot so badly he can fight him for it if he puts his IC title on the line. The Miz looks like he may regret having run his mouth however Bryan agrees to this and says that match will happen right now. Smackdown goes to an ad break as both men head to the ring.

    Match 1: IC title match: The Miz w/Maryse (c) vs RVD

    The match starts when Maryse slides into the ring and slaps Miz in the face. The ref and RVD look super confused but he rings the bell DQ'ing RVD giving the Miz the win and the number 30 spot???

    Winner via DQ and still IC champion: The Miz (0:09)

    The Miz flees towards the back after the match as RVD tells the ref what he thinks of him and his decision as Maryse and Miz flee backstage.We then cut to Miz walking through the back when he bumps into Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan with both men looking very angry with what Maryse and him just pulled.

    Miz tells Bryan I told you I should be number 30 and when I win the rumble you will be glad to know you have such a great champion and tactician as your not just IC champion but WWE champion as well. Bryan however tells Miz he would rather have someone representing his show who actually wrestles and not cheats his way to victory. Maryse goes how dare you when Shane steps in telling the couple that is enough and he should remove Miz from the rumble for his actions.

    Miz goes mental at this point saying that is ridiculous and that would prove how unfair Bryan is as GM however Bryan has a better idea. If the Miz wants to prove how great he is then at the Royal Rumble you can enter at number 1! The Miz goes mental at this point but Bryan also tells him he will be defending his IC title once again against RVD later tonight and Maryse this time you are banned from ringside! Miz looks to argue when Zack Sabre Jr walks into the picture.

    Zack questions if the Miz actually ever does anything but talk and moan. Miz fires back that no one asked him for his opinion. Sabre smirks that no one usually asks The Miz for his but he gives it anyway. He says he is looking forward to seeing you in the rumble be nice to show you how someone should act as a champion before patting the IC title on The Miz shoulder as he leaves. We then cut to an ad break for the next match.

    Match 2: Sheamus vs AJ Styles

    The match is a fun battle between the two men as Sheamus and AJ Styles show off their skills here as Sheamus tries to overpower AJ Styles whilst Styles uses his speed to keep in control throughout the match.In the end we will have AJ picking up the win over the Celtic Warrior with the Phenomenal forearm covering Sheamus picking up a massive win before the Rumble establishing himself as one of the main favourites going into Sunday.

    Winner via pinfall: AJ Styles (12:04)

    We cut to backstage as we can see Johnny Gargano on the phone backstage however before we can hear what he is saying Tommasa Cimapa appears from behind attacking Gargano throwing him into a wall. He kicks him multiple times in the chest before seemingly walking off however he runs in charging at Gargano taking his head off with a brutal knee to the skull by Cimapa. Cimapa then snarls before walking off leaving Gargano laying.

    Match 3: IC title match: The Miz (c) vs RVD

    The Miz does not look happy during the match here as he takes on RVD. During the match even at one point trying to get counted out shouting he should not be in this match but RVD chases after him not letting him escape. The finish comes when The Miz grabs the IC title as the ref snatches it off him to stop him using it. Whilst the ref is distracted Miz low blows RVD and then spins him round hitting him with skull crushing finale!

    Winner via pinfall and still IC champion: The Miz (9:12)

    The Miz heads up the ramp super happy to have picked up the win and shouts that he is going to go coast to coast as The Miz looks to win from number 1 in the rumble this Sunday.

    We come back from the ad break as we see The Wyatt Family making their way out once again as the scary group get into the ring as the crowd give them heat especially after their attack on the Undertaker last week. JBL mentions that the Deadman will still be in the rumble but he is not here tonight most likely due to the heinous assault by the Wyatts.

    Bray Wyatt starts to chuckle as he tries to warn people but you are all deaf to my warnings. I told Ziggler to run or join us and look what happened, I told American Alpha to run but like the silly naive boys they are they keep coming for us and The Undertaker refuses to acknowledge he has been replaced as I am the new face of fear. Hell just ask your brother Kane! Kane then kneels before his master as Bray goes to carry on when American Alpha's music hits as they stay on the ramp.

    Chad Gable tells Bray they are slow learners and as much as they would love to join you in the ring we know that is what you want so we will play it smart this week. Bray laughs saying being out here is already a mistake as would be turning up the the Rumble. Jordan says that maybe the case but a man is only truly brave when standing up to his fears and at the Rumble we do what we have done last year and will do this year BEAT YOUR CRONIES. Harper and Rowan at this point look very angry seemingly looking to charge at American Alpha but Bray stops them telling them to save American Alpha's destruction for Sunday as he starts to laugh. Gable however tells Bray that they shall see each other on Sunday where we will be READY WILLING AND GABLE! The two teams stare off as we cut to an ad break as American Alpha are ready for the war that is coming on Sunday.

    Match 4: Tyson Kidd and The Usos vs The Gentleman society

    This is a fun match between the two rivals group here however in the end Kidd ends up on the outside whilst Jack Gallagher puts away Jimmy Uso with the corner dropkick sending a message to Tyson Kidd ahead of their title match on Sunday.

    Winners via pinfall: The Gentleman society (11:19)

    We cut to the backstage area where we can see TJP and Kendrick stood together backstage as they have a cocky smirk on their face as Renee Young asks them about their actions on Main Event attacking Rich Swann. Kendrick smirks saying it is OK not everyone gets what a vetrean like me would know it is why TJP is so smart to learn from me. He says they wanted to send a message and to do that you have make a mark. Rich Swann was just in the wrong place at the wrong time but they will be glad to let him pick whoever he wants as a partner and face them on Sunday at the Royal Rumble pre-show. Kendrick tells Renee TJP needs a bit of seasoning and someone to follow. He has the talent and proved it winning the CWC but he just needs the right guide before walking off promising they are not done with Rich Swann just yet and after that whoever wins on Sunday we are coming for the tag team titles reminding people he was one half of the longest reigning tag team champions in Smackdown's history.

    We cut elsewhere to see John Cena as he gets stopped by Tom Phillips as he asks him how he is feeling. John Cena does his usual cheerful promo saying it is great to be here and the WWE universe is loud as always as he gets a mixed reaction. Tom asks Cena how he feels about people talking about his time away from WWE. Cena comments saying they should look at that as good thing for me. I am more rested whilst having the same drive and commitment I have always had. Cena then tells Tom both men want to be the future of the Smackdown Live but the FUTURE GOES THROUGH ME! At that point AJ Styles walks into the hallway with both men standing off with AJ smirking saying he already did before saying he hopes Cena wins at the Rumble as it will be pleasure beating him at Mania and proving himself as the Champ who runs the camp before walking past Cena clearly frustrated by AJ Styles's words here.

    Match 5: Rich Swann vs Lince Dorado

    Both men take each other on in a fun encounter however before the match can go on too long Kendrick and TJP make their way out to the ring and attack both men from behind causing a no contest. TJP and Kendrick dispose of Lince Dorado first tossing him from the ring before focusing on Swann.

    Winner:No Contest (1:40)

    However as both men start to surround Rich Swann, Mustafa Ali's music as he makes his way out looking to come to aid of his friend here. He chases off the pair as he stands next to his friend and seems to indicate that he is happy to face the pair on Sunday as Kendrick and TJP smirk on the ramp whilst Swann hugs his friend.

    We have a backstage segment where Randy Orton talks about how in the past he has won Rumbles and WWE titles throughout his career. He tells the camera he is the apex predator of the WWE and at the Rumble not only will Kevin Owens but all 29 other men will see why I am the apex predator in the WWE as I go onto main event Wrestlemania.

    Match 6: Neville vs Kalisto

    Neville here takes on Kalisto as both men show why they are seen as two of the top cruiserweights in the division and on Smackdown Live as both men put on a great match. Kalisto is even able to hits the Salida Del Sol on Neville but the King of the Cruiserweights is able to get his feet to the ropes frustrating Kalisto. Whilst this is happening Kalisto goes to pick up Neville who counters with Frankinster before climbing to the top rope and connecting with the Red Arrow picking up a massive win here and showing why he is seen as a dark horse going into the Rumble.

    Winner via pinfall: Neville (15:42)

    We cut to the back as we have another backstage promo with Kevin Owens this time sat down in a darkened room. He tells the camera that last year should have been his year but one person for many many months got in his way. Sami Zayn. However now he has that monkey off his back he should have won the WWE title but awful refs and awful GM's got in my way. However now I have the chance to prove why I belong at the top of WWE and I will win the Royal Rumble so Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon HAVE TO GIVE ME THE WWE TITLE MATCH I DESERVE as he storms off clearly not happy.

    Main Event: Dean Ambrose vs Baron Corbin

    John Cena takes a seat on the commentary desk as he watches the two men who he will facing on Sunday as both Ambrose and Corbin look to beat the hell out of each other with their issues since TLC boiling over in this match as they end fighting in the corner. Ambrose pushes the ref off to get at Corbin again when the referee tries to control them in the corner but gets ignored. He then tries the same but Corbin shoves the ref to the ground who at this point throws the match out calling for a double DQ but Ambrose and Corbin do not seem to notice or care!

    Winner: Double DQ (6:24)

    John Cena tells the commentary desk he is going to join in on the fun as he slides into the ring. Ambrose has taken control of the brawl and has sent Corbin to the mat. However he sees Cena and gets in his face. Cena stares down the WWE champion when Corbin pushes Ambrose into Cena sending Cena tumbling before he connects with a Deep six to Ambrose. He then grabs John Cena and hits him with end of days laying out John Cena. Corbin then heads to the outside before holding the WWE title in the air as he stands tall over his rivals this Sunday.

    Big Cass vs Ryback

    Big Cass here takes on Ryback in a short match as the two big men do battle here but in the end Big Cass is able to put Ryback away with a big boot to the face before making the cover picking up a nice win as he looks to get on track as a single competitor.

    Winner via pinfall: Big Cass (5:30)

    Winner via pinfall: Nia Jax (6:21)


    Tyler Breeze vs Rhyno

    Tyler Breeze takes on Rhyno here as he looks super scared as he comes to the ring with his partner Fandango. Throughout the match Breeze seems to just be trying to avoid having to actually wrestle Rhyno as much as possible. However towards the end Breeze distracts the ref allowing Fandango to use the selfie stick and hits Rhyno over the head with it before Breeze hits a beauty shot to the face of Rhyno and makes the cover picking up the shock win.

    Winner via pinfall: Tyler Breeze (9:22)

    Royal Rumble Re: WWE: A different future



    Royal Rumble theme song:


    We start the show off with the Pre-show panel with Renee Young sitting down with Jerry Lawler and Bryon Saxton as they discuss the show we have coming up. They go through the whole show with them discussing all the matches on the show as well as then talking about the pre-show matches and they also mention that throughout the night superstars shall be finding out what number they will have in the match as we cut to the room with drawer now as we can see the two GM's stood next to each other.

    Bryan and Foley can be seen stood by the number drawer as they start to hype up the show tonight and say they are looking forward to the rumble. Both men talk about both shows matches as they have a bit of banter over which show will be better tonight and whose brand the Royal Rumble winner will come from. Bryan then also comments what it must be like having to work with Steph and HHH. Foley says it is not as bad as you would think though Bryan says he is glad to have Shane as they have each others back and are able to support each other in dealing with problems like The Miz as you can see Mick Foley looking a bit upset clearly a bit jealous of the good relationship Bryan has with his boss.

    At this point the Real Americans walk into the room to a good pop from the crowd for the local boy Mark Henry as he walks into the room with his partner Jack Swagger. Mark Henry gives Mick Foley a hug as Swagger shakes hands with Bryan. Swagger jokingly tells Bryan his boy is going to show you how big a mistake you made letting us go to Raw.Bryan smirks wishing Mark Henry luck as he draws his number and does not look happy. Swagger has a look himself and tells him good thing you are the World strongest man as they head off through the back as we cut to the ring for the first of the 4 matches on the pre-show.

    Summer Rae makes her way to the ring and almost has a swagger in her step as she makes her way down the ramp looking a lot more confident then she did on Monday Night. She slides into the ring as she waits for Paige to make her way out to the ring. Paige then makes her way out and looks angry as she starts to storm towards the ring. However before she can even get halfway down to the ring Carmella and Tamina appear attacking Paige?! Summer Rae tells the ref to ring the bell as this is a No DQ no Countouts match and reluctantly the ref agrees ringing the bell even though Paige has yet to make it to the ring as Summer slowly slides out of the ring before going over to Paige.

    Pre-show: No countouts No DQ: Paige vs Summer Rae

    Tamina grabs a hold of Paige here but Paige starts to elbow Tamina off. She hits her with a headbutt to the face as Tamina staggers back but she gets hit with the Princess kick to the face by Carmella! Summer then walks over to Paige with a smug look on her face before letting out an evil smile before she hits Paige with a DDT on the outside sending Paige crashing down to the mat. Summer then picks Paige up before rolling her into the ring as the crowd reign down heat on Summer Rae for her cheap tricks.

    She then mocks Paige before making the cover looking very cocky. 1 2 PAIGE KICKS OUT! However Summer seems to not be fazed by this and looks to finish off Paige. She picks up Paige but Paige is able to counter and hits Summer Rae with a headbutt to the face sending her down to the mat. Paige rallies shouting this is my house as starts to stomp Summer into the mat when Carmella runs into the ring charging at Paige but Paige is able to duck it before taking down the Princess of Staten Island with a side kick to the head.

    However before Paige can carry on the attack she gets flattened by Tamina who runs into the ring and takes Paige down with a running clothesline sending Paige to the mat in pain as Summer thanks Tamina as she stalks Paige who slowly rises to her feet. Summer Rae waits for Paige to rise before hitting Paige with a spinning heel kick to the face. She stands over Paige sticking her arms out as she soaks in the heat.Paige starts to rise but Summer Rae grabs her hitting the Summer crush. She makes the cover but it is academic 1 2 3. Summer Rae has picked up the win with massive help from Tamina and Carmella.

    Winner via pifnall: Summer Rae (2:21)

    Summer Rae after the match asks for a microphone as the 3 of them pose in the ring standing over the fallen Paige. Summer Rae smirks before telling the crowd that she has been missing something and that is some best friends to have her back. She tells the crowd that Carmella needs someone to help her develop and Tamina is looking to get treated like the force she is. The BFF's are back and I am going for the Women's title so Sasha I will be seeing you soon. Summer blows a kiss before leaving the ring. Summer as she leaves the ring steps on Paige as the BFF's head up the ramp getting booed by the crowd.

    We cut back to the drawer as we can see Mick Foley talking with Bryan with both men putting over the Women's division as Bryan says he may look into bring a women's division to Smackdown live whilst Mick Foley mentions he has been impressed with the Cruiserweight division and title hinting that maybe they can come to some arrangement. Mick Foley then sees someone walks in as he says and here is one of my favourites from Smackdown Live as Johnny Gargano walks into the room shaking hands with Mick Foley and Daniel Bryan. Bryan asks how he is feeling with Johnny Gargano tells Bryan he is feeling excited and looking forward to his first rumble.

    Johnny Gargano puts his hand into the drawer and can see the number not looking thrilled with it. Johnny turns to Bryan saying it is a good thing I like a challenge. However before he can says anything else his former tag team partner Tommasa Cimapa walks into the room with a scowl on his face. Bryan steps in straight away giving Cimapa a warning not to lay a hand on Gargano. Cimapa remarks if I wanted to hurt him again you could not stop me. He barges past Bryan and grabs a number out of the drawer and his scowl manages to get even worse. Gargano asks bad news? Cimapa however turns back saying he wanted an easy night but he will just have to do thing the hard way saying he will win the rumble and leave Gargano in the past where he belongs. Gargano fires back saying for someone who wants to leave me in the past you spend a lot of time focusing on me. Cimapa at this point turns around and goes for Gargano with Bryan and Foley tells both to leave now and save it for the rumble. Both men head in separate directions as Foley and Daniel Bryan look on as both men head off elsewhere.

    Pre-show: Perkins and Kendrick vs Rich Swann and Mustafa Ali

    Match summary: Kendrick and Perkins during this match look to establish themselves in this encounter. Meanwhile this match is an opportunity for Mustafa Ali and Rich Swann to get a measure of payback on the pair for their actions the last two weeks.

    As the match goes on Swann and Ali whilst trying their best against the veteran experience of Kendrick however it seems TJP and Kendrick are already on the same page even if it has only been a couple of weeks.In the end TJP takes Ali out pushing him off the top rope to the floor on the outside of the ring as he goes for the 054. Swann is the legal man and goes after TJP but he dodges him whilst Kendrick distracts the ref allowing TJP to rake the eyes of Swann before hitting him with the detonation kick. As Swann stumbles back from the kick Kendrick grabs a hold of Swann locking in the bully choke for the win via submission.

    Winners via pinfall: TJP and Kendrick (10:34)

    After the match both men motion that they are going for gold with the commentary discussing the fact that TJP and Kendrick will be keeping a close eye on the tag team titles match later on in the show.

    We cut back to the drawer when The Miz walks into the ring holding the IC title and not looking happy demanding Daniel Bryan fix the injustice he has caused by forcing The Miz to be number one in the rumble. Daniel Bryan laughs telling Miz that if he hated the Miz that much and wanted to screw him over he would not even let Miz be in the rumble. He tells Miz that when you pull cheap tricks all the time you disrespect the legends who have held the IC title in the past. The Miz at this point screams at Bryan that he has brought credibility back to the title and he has made the IC title great again before asking Bryan if he has a match tonight.

    Daniel Bryan looks like boiling over when Sami Zayn walks into the room. Sami Zayn sees Bryan and goes to shake his hand as Miz comments oh look another one of Bryan's favourites. Sami Zayn ignores the comments as he draws his ball out of the drawer and looks content with his number. Bryan tells The Miz that Zayn has fought all his career and is not a coward like the Miz. He also gives him credit for Kevin Owens being part of the Smackdown roster even if he does not like the way Kevin Owens goes about doing things. The Miz however throws a tantrum and storms off as Bryan wishes Zayn good luck tonight. Zayn thanks Bryan and tells Foley he will do his best. Foley says he believes in him and says he is glad to have him representing his brand as one of the 15 men in the match tonight. Sami Zayn walks off as Daniel Bryan asks who the two mystery names are. Foley smirks saying he can't tell his rival GM as we fade away before coming to the third match that is part of the pre-show.

    Pre-show: WWE tag team titles match: Rhodes Scholars (c) vs Hype Bros w/Mojo Rawley

    This match starts off with both teams shaking hands with each other. On the outside we can see Mojo Rawley acting like a cheerleader on the outside for his boys to comedic effect as Hawkins seems to roll his eyes at his friend's antics whilst Ryder enjoys it and has a chuckle whenever he is on the apron. The match starts off with Ryder in the ring with Sandow as both men feel the other one out to start the encounter before Sandow takes control. Rhodes then gets tagged in battling with Zack Ryder but he is able to escape from Rhodes and gets his friend Hawkins into the encounter.

    When Hawkins is in the ring he puts up a good fight showing some new moves that he learned in his time away from the WWE as Corey Graves mentions that Hawkins went around America to pick up some new moves before returning so his second run he could have a lot more success this time. However as it goes along he and Ryder work as a team, to isolate Cody until Sandow comes up with a plan freeing his partner up allowing him to escape before Sandow gets back to the ropes. This allows Cody to tag him in and Sandow gets the hot tag taking control of the match.

    We go towards the finish with Sandow in control when Ryder gets the tag with Sandow seeing this as he looks to hit you're welcome on Hawkins but Ryder hits Sandow with a punch to the face before hitting the Rough Ryder! Cody Rhodes runs into the ring and breaks it up at 2 before Hawkins charges at him but Cody dodges hitting Cross Rhodes on Curt Hawkins. However before he can react Zack Ryder hits Cody with a rough Ryder! Cody rolls out of the ring! Zack then sees that Sandow is still down before climbing to the top rope and going for the El-Bro drop! He flies off the top rope however Sandow dodges out of the way causing Zack Ryder to crash and burn. He then waits behind Zack Ryder before grabbing hold of him hitting him with You're Welcome and makes the cover. 1 2 3 Damien Sandow wins!!

    Winners via pinfall: Rhodes Scholars (12:03)

    After the match Rhodes Scholars celebrate in the ring happy to have retained their titles here tonight.

    We can see John Cena backstage looking focused as he gets ready for the WWE title triple threat tonight. However as he is getting ready we can see the feet of someone.

    Winner via submission: Samoa Joe (20:54)

    Samoa Joe after the match stands tall in the ring as Seth comes to. Joe heads up the ramp holding the title in the air to heat from the crowd for his viscous assaults on Rollins throughout the match whilst Rollins struggles to his feet as he seems to be having a lot of trouble standing as we cut to see HHH watching backstage not happy at this result at all.

    We cut back to the drawer room as we can see Mick Foley and Daniel Bryan stood talking as they discuss the match that just happened. Bryan gives credit to Rollins for fighting through the pain and trying to take on a monster like Joe with a knee injury. Foley tells Bryan that whilst he has a problem with Steph and HHH he knows how great Rollins is. Bryan quips back who does not have a problem with them as we hear a massive thud before we cut to see the monster among men.

    Braun Strowman walks into the room towering over the pair before grabbing a number out of the drawer. He looks at it for a long time before smirking. Foley asks him if he got a late draw and Strowman stares at him telling he got something even better. A nice early draw meaning more people to destroy before walking off. Foley asks Bryan if there is anyone on his show who can stop that and Bryan does not answer clearly a bit worried.

    We then cut to the ring as Baron Corbin makes his ring entrance to heat from the crowd as he looks off at them with his usual disdain towards the fans. He gets in the ring as he waits for the other two men.

    The last entrant in the rumble this year Rob Van Dam makes his way to the ring a pop from the crowd as he looks to win his first ever rumble here. As he springboards into the ring connecting with a diving thrust kick to the face of Bray Wyatt! He is then met by Kevin Owens who goes for a superkick to the face of RVD but RVD counters with a step-over spinning heel kick!

    RVD then does his signature taunt as he stands in the ring before hitting Kevin Owens with a standing moonsault! RVD grabs a hold of his ribs when he gets met with a massive spear from Reigns as the crowd reign down heat on him for the attack but he does not care giving them a smug look! However as Reigns is stood there he gets met with a Kinshasa to the face. The king of strong style turns around to see Zayn staring at him as the two men battle near the corner as we cut to the other side of the ring.

    The Miz has got Zack Sabre Jr before charging up hitting him with his Awesome clothesline as he stick his leg through the ropes! He then looks to grab a hold of Sabre to throw him out but the pain inflicted to his fingers causes him to lose grip as Sabre escapes hitting him with a discuss elbow smash to the face sending the Miz over the rope! The Miz tries to grab a hold of the ropes with his injured hand however Sabre kicks The Miz's hand forcing him to let go as Zack Sabre Jr eliminates the IC CHAMPION FROM THE RUMBLE!

    Elimination 22: The Miz by Zack Sabre Jr (43:36)

    The Miz holds his hand in pain as Sabre has a happy smirk as he mentions towards The Miz he wants his belt as The Miz heads to the back after an impressive 43 minute showing in this rumble!

    Kevin Owens however comes up behind Sabre grabbing him in a sleeper like hold. However Sabre starts to fight out of it forcing Owens to hit him with sleep suplex! Shinsuke meanwhile hits Zayn with a German suplex leaving him in the corner!

    Elsewhere Reigns and Bray start to brawl by the ring ropes as both men start to beat the hell out of each other. Owens meanwhile sees the downed Zayn and goes on the attack. He stalks his former friend grabbing hold of him. He says you got lucky to escape last time as it seems he is going for a pop-up powerbomb to the outside however Sami is able to reverse it sending Kevin Owens out of the rumble

    Elimination 23: Kevin Owens by Sami Zayn (44:47)

    Kevin Owens goes mental on the outside clearly not happy to have been one upped by Zayn again who is clinging to the ropes before jumping back into the ring however as he gets in he is met with a superman punch to the face from Roman Reigns! However before Reigns can do anything he is grabbed by Rob Van Dam who connects with a Northern lights suplex to Reigns here.

    Rob Van Dam then looks around to see the eater of World Bray Wyatt charging at him however he is too fast for him as he grabs a hold of Bray in a wrist-lock hitting him with multiple roundhouse kicks before finishing him off with a jumping spin kick! Rob Van Dam then has an idea as he goes to the top rope as he looks for a five star frog splash and connects!

    However as he gets up he is met with a Kinshasa to the face from the King of Strong style who grabs a hold of him and throws him out of the rumble!

    Elimination 24: RVD by Shinsuke Nakamura (45:55)

    Shinsuke then turns his attention around and is once again met by the presence of AJ Styles as the two men look to do battle in the centre of the ring once again but are quickly stopped when Zack Sabre Jr hits Nakmaura with an European upper cut whilst Reigns attacks AJ Styles!

    Reigns starts fighting Styles towards the corner but Styles counters with a phenomenal blitz. He then waits for Reigns to rise before hitting hits with a running swinging neckbreaker planting Reigns to the mat for the moment! On the other side of the ring Zack Sabre Jr is tying Shinsuke up in knots as he tries to weaken the king of strong style here as he locks in a modified double underhook guillotine choke! Shinsuke is fading in the hold here and clearly in a lot of trouble but before he fades from the hold he runs towards the turnbuckle smashing Zack Sabre's jr's back into it multiple times forcing him to let go of the hold!

    Shinsuke gets his breath back before he starts to stomp on Zack Sabre Jr as he looks to get back into the encounter full on sliding through as the King of Strong style then gets some distance between himself and Sabre Jr however before he can connect Bray appears so Shinsuke hits Bray with the Kinshasa to the face! As this is happening you can see Styles and Reigns battling by the ropes whilst Sabre gets his footing back but is met with a Hulleva kick to the face sending him over the ropes but not out yet when Shinsuke charges up hitting Sabre with a lariat to the face knocking Sabre out of the rumble!

    Elimination 25: Zack Sabre Jr by Shinsuke Nakamura (47:42)

    Elimination 26: Roman Reigns by Sami Zayn (48:25)

    Reigns look furious but heads up the ramp with no fuss as the crowd cheer for Zayn massively now having taken out the most hated man in WWE. All 4 men left in the rumble are stood in a corner each. AJ “The Phenomenal one”Styles, Shinsuke “The King of Strong style”Nakamura, Sami “The Underdog from the underground”Zayn and Bray “The eater of Worlds”Wyatt. All 4 men stare the others down as they all know how close they are to guaranteed World or WWE title match at Wrestlemania!

    The first one to charge is Shinsuke as he heads after the eater of Worlds connecting with a running knee strike before he looks to charge at Zayn but he gets hit with a dropkick to the face from Sami Zayn! AJ however grabs a hold of Sami hitting him with a Styles suplex special(German suplex followed by a belly to back wheelbarrow facebuster). However before he can do much Bray Wyatt charges in hitting Styles with a running crossbody knocking AJ off his feet!

Both men start hitting each other with forearms as AJ goes for another one as Shinsuke falls back but he charges at AJ before locking in the SHINING TRIANGLE! He has trapped Styles in a triangle choke as he wrenches on the hold looking to make AJ pass out here!

    He keeps it locked in however AJ is able to counter Shinsuke as he moves his body around just enough as he places him in position to hit the Styles clash to Shinsuke! Both men are laid down on the mat with their energy spent as the 3rd man left in this as Sami Zayn rises to his feet. He waits for AJ to rise to his feet as he catches him with an Exploder suplex into the turnbuckles!

    Raw Re: WWE: A different future


    January 16
    th:

    We kick off the show with the World champion Samoa Joe making his way down to the ring as he is dressed in a suit looking very fancy as he makes his way down to the ring with a smug smile on his face clearly happy with his victory last night as he climbs into the ring with a microphone in his hand.

    He tells the crowd that I told Rollins what would happen. He says there is no man in the WWE who can beat me today let alone someone with their knee falling apart. He gives Rollins credit but says he is not me and if he tries to take my title again I will make sure I break your knee for good. He then turns his attention to the Royal Rumble winner Sami Zayn.

    He tells Zayn that he advises he go to Smackdown and fight John Cena because if he fights him at Wrestlemania then his underdog dream will turn into a nightmare. He tells Zayn you know how much of a destructive force I truly am. You have seen what I can do first hand so go to Smackdown where you might have a chance. However before he can leave the ring Mick Foley makes his way out to the ring to a pop from the crowd.

    Mick Foley tells Joe that is enough before declaring that Sami will be making his decision tonight on whether he is going for the World title or the WWE title. He says that Joe still has to make it to Mania as champion. Joe says there is no man in WWE who can beat me one on one. Foley however informs Joe maybe that is the case but you are not facing one man at Fastlane.

    Joe looks angry saying what did you say? Mick smirks saying that he felt 3 men deserved a shot at the World title and he wanted to make a blockbuster main event on the Road to Wrestlemania so you will be facing the last two men in the rumble that were left in the match other then Sami from Raw: Roman Reigns (which gets massive heat from the crowd) and Shinsuke Nakamura (which gets a large pop from the crowd). Joe says that is just two before saying you picked a dog with a bark bigger then his bite and someone I already destroyed in NXT. Foley says you are correct.

    Foley then says last night Seth Rollins took you to the limit and if his knee was 100% there is a chance he would have defeated you. Samoa Joe says even if his knee was 100% he would have still lost and I bet it was HHH's idea to give him another shot protecting his little kid. Foley says that HHH is the Co-GM but this was his decision and that at Fastlane Seth Rollins will get one more chance. Samoa Joe scowls before getting in Foley's face promising that he will find a way to keep his title even if the deck has been stacked against him and promises to break Rollins's knee for good. Joe drops the microphone as he heads towards the back with a scowl on his face not happy at Foley's announcement.

    We cut to the backstage area to see Mick Foley walking through the back when an angry HHH appears from round the corner looking very angry. He shouts at Foley asking he thinks he is doing? Foley tells HHH that he knows he would want Rollins to have a 1 on 1 title shot but Reigns and Shinsuke's deserve the shot as well. HHH says that is not what he is mad about those two getting a World title shot. Foley asks what his problem is. HHH asks are you trying to end Rollins's career? He tells Foley that Rollins needs time off to recover. Foley says he spoke to Rollins and says that whilst his knee is not 100% he spoke with the doctors backstage and he should be 100% at Fastlane. HHH says that Foley is endangering the future of the WWE and this is why I needed to become co-GM before storming off saying he is going talk some sense into Rollins.

    We cut to the ring to see James Ellisworth there as he waits in the ring saying he is glad to be back in a WWE ring and says any man with two hands has a chance. However as Braun's music hits as he storms down to the ring with Ellisworth looking like he is quaking with fear.

    Match 1: Braun Strowman vs James Ellisworth

    Braun gets in the ring and destroys Ellisworth. He throws him around before hitting Ellisworth with multiple running powerslams. He hits 3 or 4 before the ref calls off the match as Strowman does not seem interested in even going for a cover.

    Winner via stoppage: Braun Strowman (1:13)

    Strowman looks like he is about to attack the ref but thinks better of it, storming off towards the back as the commentary team hype up how much of a destructive force he was in the rumble needing 5 men to take him out whilst he eliminated the most competitors taking out 7 men from the rumble.

    We then see a video package play showing Mickie James as it hypes up the return of Mickie James. The video announces she will be making her return to the WWE at Fastlane! We cut to the backstage area to see a bunch of women watching before we head to the ring for the second match of the night.

    Match 2: Tye Dillinger vs Cedric Alexander

    Tye gets a decent pop from the crowd as he makes his way out to take on Cedric in a competitive match. Tye gets to show off his skills and has a couple of close encounters but in the end the perfect Ten picks up the win. After the match ends both men shake hands with each other as we cut to the backstage area.

    Winner via pinfall: Tye Dillinger (9:10)

    We see the New Day together backstage with Xaiver Woods's arm still in a cast. Big E says last night we had an unfortunate set back and the numbers game got the better of us. Kofi says however they are not done with the Club and promise they will get revenge on them soon however we want to get back to where we belong and that is the top of the tag team division. Big E says he wants to be a dual champion and plans to defend the US title against all comers. Kofi asks for a title match which Big E smirks at however before he can get an answer The Club walk into the scene though they are without their leader.

    The Club laugh at the pair saying they have moved on from beating the New Day time and time again. They inform the New Day that HHH after their win last night has granted them a tag team title shot against Rhodes Scholars where they aim to become 2 time tag team champions. They also mention their boy has something special planned tonight and it will be too sweet. They walk off laughing as Big E says becoming a dual champion by beating them would be sweeter then a box of booty o's. Kofi says ain't you got a match as they head to the ring.

    Match 3: Big E w/ Kofi Kingston and Xaiver Woods vs Bo Dallas

    The US champion here takes on Bo Dallas in a short match as Bo Dallas tries to put up a good fight but in the end Big E is able to put Bo Dallas away with the Big Ending whilst his friends cheer him on from ringside. After the match the New Day stand tall in the ring as the crowd chant NEW DAY ROCKS as we head to an ad break as we can see Bayley making her way through the back with the Women's title on her shoulder.

    Winner via pinfall: Big E (7:11)

    Bayley makes her way out to a massive pop from the crowd as she has a massive smile on her face here. She slides into the ring holding her title in the air as the crowd start to chant you deserve it as Bayley stands in the ring very happy. She tells the crowd that last night she made history by winning the first ever ladder match for the WWE women title before telling the fans she could never have made it so far without them. She says she hopes she can keep making people proud of her however before she can carry on Sasha Banks's music hits to a mixed reaction though mostly heat for interrupting Bayley.

    Sasha banks does not look happy on the ramp before putting on a fake smile as she makes her way into the ring. She looks at Bayley before she starts to clap? Bayley says Sasha I tried to ring you but you would not answer your phone. Sasha tells Bayley she wanted to speak to Bayley in person and says congratulations. She says she said if she had to lose to anyone it would her as she goes to hug Bayley who seems a bit wary before hugging Sasha back.

    They keep it on with Sasha flashing a slight grin before letting go of the hug before telling Bayley she has some good news for her friend. Bayley asks what it is and Sasha tells Bayley that at Fastlane it will be me vs you for the Women's title. The crowd pop for this announcement as Bayley says that is great and Sasha just had to ask with Sasha smirking telling Bayley she will she her there promising to take back her title. Bayley laughs telling Sasha remember what happened last time. Sasha face changes very quickly as she sharply tells Bayley this is not NXT and this time you will have to actually pin me. She then says see you there bestie before heading towards the back as Bayley looks confused but happy as we go to an ad break.

    Cesaro makes his way out to the ring for his match next with his ribs taped up in a lot of pain after what Brock Lesnar did to him last night. He makes his way to the ring as he waits for his opponent as Darren Young makes his way out. He says that Cesaro last night had a good showing but if Young was in the rumble he would have shown why he is worth millions of dollars and stayed in after taking out Brock promising to show Cesaro how good he is and dedicates this match to his home boy Titus.

    Match 4: Darren Young vs Cesaro

    Cesaro looks a lot worse for wear in this match after the beating he has suffered and Darren Young takes control early on but in the end Cesaro puts away Darren Young before calling for a microphone.

    Winner via pinfall: Cesaro (7:34)

    Cesaro cuts straight to the point daring Brock Lesnar to get out here right now!!! He throws the microphone away however it is not Brock Lesnar who makes his way out but BRAUN STROWMAN with a scowl on his face. He storms into the ring as Cesaro is ready to fight the monster among men. Cesaro tries to fight off the beast but Strowman ends up winning the battle before hitting the running powerslam smashing Cesaro down to the mat. He picks him up before slamming him down to the mat one more time with a running powerslam. He then heads to the back happy with what he is done as Cesaro is left in the ring in massive amounts of pain.

    We come back from the ad break as we see a clip from whilst we were off air of Cesaro being helped to the backstage area due to the damage suffered. We then cut to Strowman walking through the back when he is stopped by Charly Caruso who asks him why he attacked Cesaro just now. Strowman stares with an angry glare before telling Charly that Cesaro was the one the 5 men who stopped me from winning the rumble. So I used him to send a message the rest I will destroy anyone who gets in my way before storming off through the back.

    We cut to round the corner as can see Rusev wanting to fight Strowman saying he will show Strowman who the real monster is showing a surprising amount of bravery. Lana tells him to pick his battles and says we have other battles to fight as she drags Rusev away. We cut to the ring to see Epico from the Shining stars waiting in the ring before Kurt Angle makes his way out to a massive pop from the crowd after returning during the Rumble last night eliminating Rusev.

    Match 5: Kurt Angle w/Shelton Benjamin vs Epico w/Primo

    Kurt Angle here gets to show off just what he can do in a short match as Shelton keeps Primo from doing anything on the outside. Epico in the end taps out to the ankle lock. Shelton slides into the ring post match to celebrate with Angle.

    Winner via submission: Kurt Angle (4:44)

    However as both men stand in the ring Rusev's music hits to boos from the crowd as Lana stands by his side. Lana says Rusev is superior to...but before she can carry on Angle tells her with have heard this all before. He says Rusev attacked him because he knew he could not defeat an Olympic hero IT'S TRUE IT'S TRUE. He says anytime you want to fight me I will breaking your freaking ankle. Rusev stares him down saying he will crush Angle very soon.

    We cut to the back as we can see Chris Jericho backstage with Big Show as they talk about their tag match tonight. Jericho declares that tonight they will be adding the Ascension to the list. Big Show smiles before saying have you seen what Strowman is doing. Jericho questions why he cares but Show says that he sees a lot of himself in Strowman calling Strowman a sore loser saying of course everyone is going to team up on him saying the kid is good but has a lot to learn about the WWE before walking off as Jericho smirks saying he will give his partner the gift of Jericho later then. We then see the camera pan to see Strowman listening to the conversation in the background looking very angry.

    We then come back from the ad break as we see Seth Rollins in a medical room going over some tests on his knee. As these tests are going on HHH walks into the room to ask how Seth is feeling. Seth says his knee hurts but he will be ready for Fastlane and take the World title. However HHH tells him that he thinks Seth would be better taking some time off to recover. Seth Rollins says you don't have faith in me? HHH says that is ridiculous saying I am protecting you and the future of this company. Rollins tells HHH that when he broke his quad how badly did you want to come back? HHH says that Rollins needs to be smart and pick his moments to go after someone like Joe as well as top guys like Nakamura and Reigns. Rollins tells HHH he appreciates the concern but he will make sure he is 100% by Fastlane. Rollins walks off as HHH looks on with a concerned look on his face.

    Match 6: Ryback vs Curt Hawkins w/Hype Bros

    Curt Hawkins makes his way to the ring as he takes on the monster Ryback here. Ryback uses his power to control the match but Hawkins is able to use his skill and pace to pick up the win whilst his bros cheer him on at ringside before he connects with the heat seeking elbow for the 3 count.

    Winner via pinfall: Curt Hawkins (7:13)

    We see Roman Reigns backstage as he is playing on his phone when Charly Caruso walks up him asking how he feels about his match at Fastlane. However Reigns ignores her and carries on texting on his phone. She asks him again when Reigns tells her that he has hundreds of girls chasing him so she can join the line not even acknowledging her as she walks off clearly annoyed at how he spoke to her.

    As Reigns walks off on his phone he bumps into Samoa Joe. He looks up from his phone before saying look who it is. Reigns calls Joe a cheap low rent version of him and he is holding something that belongs to the big dawg. Samoa Joe warns Reigns to shut his mouth before he closes it for him for good telling him he has beaten the other two men in the match already and you will be next. Both men stare each other down as we cut to an ad break as you could cut the tension with a knife.

    When we come back from an ad break Michael Cole says Shinsuke Nakamurawill be here next week before inviting us to watch a message he had for the Raw fans as well as Hideo Itami.

    Shinsuke Nakamura looks into the camera before thanking Mick Foley for the opportunity at the World title. He mentions how he defeated Samoa Joe in NXT and can beat him again, he calls Reigns a failed star and says Seth Rollins calls himself the future but where he is from that title goes to young lions and the World title is only for the current top guys. He then mentions the Royal Rumble winner Sami Zayn as someone he did battle with in his first match in WWE and would be honoured to face him again in the main event of Wrestlemania. He then tells Hideo he did not see him at the Rumble where was he? Oh you lost in under a minute once again.

    He then turns to the camera telling us that next week he will face Hideo Itami one last time and show him who the true king of strong style is. He then does his hand motions as the camera cuts out as we cut to the commentary desk who hype up the encounter next week on Raw.

    Match 7: Jack Swagger w/Mark Henry vs Nick Aldis w/Wade Barrett

    We cut to the ring as Jack Swagger takes on one half of the Mercenaries as the rivalry between the two teams carries on. Jack Swagger is able to escape out of Tormentum before locking in the ankle lock for the win here.

    Winner via submission: Jack Swagger (8:23)

    However after the win Wade Barrett sneaks in the ring and attacks Swagger from behind as the Mercenaries clearly not happy with the loss in this encounter. He connects with a bullhammer to the face of Swagger as Mark Henry runs into the ring but Aldis hits a low blow sending Henry down to his knees. Barrett then connects with a Bullhammer for good measure to Mark Henry as the Mercenaries stand tall in the ring.

    We then cut to a backstage segment as we see a couple of nice chairs setup as we can see Rhodes Scholars relaxing smoking a pair of cigars(with a disclaimer for any kids saying don't smoke) with the tag team titles around their waist as they are relaxing. Cody says last night they showed why they are tag team champions and whilst they did comeback for singles gold they have showed why they are such an effective unit. Sandow says that at Fastlane they will face the Club one more time with the belts on the line and once again they will defeat the Club. They pour some whiskey before toasting to their success as we cut to another ad break before the next match of the night as Becky Lynch makes her way to the ring.

    Once Becky is in the ring her opponent Carmella makes her way down to the ring flanked by the fellow BFF'S Summer Rae and Tamina as Becky looks on wary of the number's game.

    Match 8: Becky Lynch vs Carmella w/Summer Rae and Tamina

    Carmella tries her best but Becky clearly the superior fighter takes control of the match and even looks like she is about to win when Tamina runs into the ring breaking up the dis-arm-her attempt as the ref rings the bell for the DQ. Summer slowly slides into the ring whilst this is happening with a microphone in her hand as Tamina and Carmella beat-down on Becky here.

    Winner via DQ: Becky Lynch (5:12)

    Summer Rae looks down at Becky saying poor little Becky before giving her a boot. She then turns to the crowd declaring that the BFF's are taking over this division. She drops the microphone as the 3 women stand tall over Becky Lynch here.

    Hideo Itami is shown backstage as he can be seen kicking the hell out of a punching bag clearly not in a good mood after what happened at the rumble. He sees Mike Rome and shouts in Japanese to leave right now. He asks how he feels about Shinsuke announcing his challenge and he shouts I will make him show me respect before telling Mike to leave now as Mike heads out of there as Hideo kicks to the bag so hard the chain breaks causing it to fall down as he pants his breath like a mad man.

    We see Seth Rollins with a bag over his shoulder when he bumps into Sami Zayn. The crowd gives a nice pop for the Royal Rumble win as both men stare each other down before Rollins says congratulations. Sami thanks Rollins before saying he watched his match last night and saw how close he was to winning. Rollins tells him that when it comes to the World title close ain't good enough for me. Zayn agrees but tells him it would be an honour beating him at Mania. Rollins smirks saying was that a challenge as Zayn smiles heading in a different direction as we cut to the ring for the final match of the night before the main event segment.

    Match 9: Chris Jericho and Big Show vs The Ascension

    A nice decent but short match with the finish coming with Jericho hitting Viktor with the codebreaker for the count. Big Show knocks Konnor out with a KO punch.

    Winners via pinfall: Chris Jericho and Big Show (4:29)

    However after the match as they stand in the ring Braun makes his way out attacking Big Show first at ringside throwing the giant into the steel steps before picking them up and attacking the ankle of the Big Show slamming the steps down onto his ankle. Jericho runs out to try to help him but gets met with a big boot from the monster among men for his troubles.

    The Ascension can be seen leaving the ring after the attack with them both still feeling the effects of Jericho and Show's finisher when Strowman grabs a hold of the steps he knocked over. He charges at the pair clattering them with the steel steps. He then places the steel steps on the ground before picking up the Big Show screaming I AM NOT FINISHED WITH YOU YET before hitting a massive running powerslam onto the steel steps!!! Braun Strowman stands tall over the wreckage before storming off to the back as we get ready for the main event segment for Sami Zayn's Rumble celebration.

    Sami Zayn makes his way down to the ring soaking in the pop from the crowd. He slides into the ring as he listens to the fans chant his name before smirking saying thank you. He thanks the fans for keeping the faith in him and being with him all the way from NXT to right now. He mentions how close he has been to winning big matches in recent months but now he has proven he belongs at the top. He says as much as he would love to have Daniel Bryan as his GM, his home is Monday Night Raw and I am using my title shot for the World title.

    However before he can carry on however The Club make their way down to the ring lifting their leader Finn Balor onto their shoulders to heat from the crowd as the cocky superstar has a massive smug on his face. Graves mentions their massive win last night against the New Day with Enzo reminding Graves of the numbers advantage but Graves said they beat one of the best teams in recent years and Finn was the longest NXT champion in history. Finn gets a mic as he steps in the ring popping his collar as Zayn looks unimpressed to see his rival standing across the ring from him.

    Sami asks Finn if he can help him. Finn says he was curious about Zayn declaring he was fighting for the World title at Wrestlemania as he had not made it yet. Sami questions if that was a threat but Finn chuckles saying he has an opportunity for you to get your chance to face me. Finn tells Zayn that last time we faced I beat you 1 2 3 and if we were to face again the same thing would happen. Sami says he worked so hard to win the rumble, to get my chance at winning the World title at Wrestlemania and you want me to risk it just to get my hands on you?

    Sami smirks saying I have a condition. I know what you are like and I don't just want the Club banned from ringside but anyone else. Finn smirks saying you were almost smart then almost promising to show Zayn that he is the rock and rolla who belongs at the top agreeing to the terms saying he does not need help to beat Zayn again. He then tells Zayn that his boys are not banned from the ringside right now as Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson start to beat Sami down. They leave him laid out in the ring as Finn climbs to the top rope before hitting a Coup D'Grace for good measure as the Rock and Rolla stands tall on his boys shoulders as Raw comes to an end with Sami Zayn down and out maybe having bitten off more then he can chew?

    Matchcard for Fastlane:

    World title fatal 4 way match: Samoa Joe (c) vs Seth Rollins vs Roman Reigns vs Shinsuke Nakamura


    Winner gets the World title match at WM: (No one allowed at ringside) : Sami Zayn vs Finn Balor

    SD Live Re: WWE: A different future


    January 17th:

    We start the show off as John Cena music hits to the usual mixed reaction as the 16 TIME champion makes his way to the ring! He has a smile on his face as he turns to the crowd with a smug look before saying I got my title back! He throws his cap into the crowd. He then slides into the ring with the WWE championship in hand before he tells the crowd the CHAMP IS HERE. He is about to carry on however before he can speak he is interrupted by the theme song of the former WWE champion Dean Ambrose to mostly cheers from the crowd with a few kids booing Ambrose as he gets into the ring staring down the champion before speaking.

    Ambrose tells Cena congratulations. John Cena says thank you before Ambrose says were you expecting something else? Cena tells Ambrose a lot of people at this point come out and complain they weren't pinned for the title. Ambrose smirks saying he ain't like most people and he wanted the match saying he knew the risks however he also wants his title back and tells Cena that he is cashing his rematch in for Roadblock. Cena smirks telling Ambrose that if he wants some he can come get some. Both men stare each other down when Baron Corbin's music hits to heat from the crowd.

    Corbin demands a 1 vs 1 shot saying he got screwed by two men wanting to personally fight him. Ambrose laughs telling the lone wolf that he belongs at the back of the queue. Cena though tells Corbin he will gladly fight him right now however before anything can happen Daniel Bryan makes his way out to a pop from the crowd. Daniel Bryan says that he would love to have John Cena vs Baron Corbin as the main event but we already have a main event in Randy Orton vs Kevin Owens. However he makes the match for next week with John Cena taking on Baron Corbin. Bryan leaves as Corbin tries to sneak attack Cena from behind when Ambrose spins Corbin around hitting him with a dirty deeds. Ambrose grabs the microphone telling John Cena he wants to make sure Cena is 100% at Roadblock so there is no excuse when he beats the lazy part-timer storming off towards the back as Cena stares down Dean Ambrose.

    As Daniel Bryan is walking through the back after the ad break when the Phenomenal one walks up to him with a mixed reaction as he asks Bryan what he has to do to become number one contender. Bryan jokingly replies that you did not win last night Styles. Styles though counters listing off Randy Orton. The Undertaker and heck the current champion he has beaten them all since arriving and should be fighting for the WWE title. Bryan tells Styles he appreciates his frustration and tells him that at the Fastlane there will be two elimination chamber matches with the first one being to decide who will be the number one contender for the WWE title at Wrestlemania and has granted AJ Styles a spot in the match after his performance last night.

    Styles goes to leave as Brayn tells AJ that is not the only message he has for him. Bray Wyatt requested that his follower Erick Rowan face you tonight. Styles smirks saying that guy still mad that he lost to me? That is fine I will beat his worshipper and show him why I am the face that runs the place. Styles walks off with a cocky smirk on his face.

    Johnny Gargano here is seen walking through the back when he is approached by Renee Young asking him how he is feeling. Gargano says he is a little disappointed at how the Rumble went as he made a stupid mistake in trusting his former friend not to stab him in the back. He tells Young that maybe Cimapa is jealous that he is moving on whilst he is still focused on me. Gargano tells Renee that a win tonight should help his case about getting into the Cruiserweight title picture as he walks off.

    Match 1: Johnny Gargano vs Ariya Davari

    Johnny Gargano takes on Davari in a decent encounter here with Gargano picking up the win over Darvari.

    Winner via pinfall: Johnny Gargano (7:50)

    However as Gargano is standing tall in the ring as Tommasa Cimapa runs down to the ring and attacks Gargano from behind sending him crashing down to the mat. He shouts at Gargano asking do I look jealous of a loser like you? He screams at him before hitting him with a brutal knee strike before storming off leaving Gargano laid out in the ring.

    We then come back from the ad break to see Kevin Owens and Randy Orton brawling in the backstage area clearly not willing to wait for the main event later in the evening! Randy Orton sends KO over a catering table when Daniel Bryan walks in telling both men that is enough! Kevin Owens tries to charge at Randy Orton but Bryan holds the pair off saying if they want to battle all over the arena that is fine the match main event will now be a falls count anywhere match. He then says now leave before I suspend the pair of you. Both men stare each other down before leaving to get ready for the main event later tonight.

    We cut to the ring as the Wyatt Family make their way down to the ring. He gets in the ring and brings up last night they did not succeed in their purist of the tag team belts. He says American Alpha escaped for now but he promises that they will be back for the titles however his boys clearly need some more growth. He then tells the crowd that next week I have a qualifier for the Elimination chamber and I will destroy whoever steps into the chamber with me as I will slay the beasts of the past and take the holy grail with my rightful place on top of WWE. He then tells us that his new demon has something to say as he passes the microphone to Kane.

    Kane tells the crowd they are fools for not following Bray as he will lead them to the light and save them. He tells the crowd his brother is a fool and that he is no longer the face of fear but Bray can either save or destroy him. He tells the Undertaker that he has a challenge for him at Roadblock to face him so he can show his brother the light and lead him to the correct path. At this point AJ Styles makes his way out to the ring as the Wyatt's leave the ring expect for Rowan.

    Match 2: AJ Styles vs Erick Rowan w/Wyatt Family

    Erick Rowan shows off his power and skill in this match as he tries to not only defeat AJ Styles but also destory him. However as the match goes on AJ Styles here uses his skill and pace to defeat Erick Rowan here as he is able to defeat him with the Phenomenal forearm.

    Winner via pinfall: AJ Styles (8:56)

    However after the match all the other members of the Wyatt family make their way into the ring and surround AJ as Bray says I tried to warn you as AJ gets ready to fight seeing no escape. However before they beat down AJ suddenly the arena goes dark and a gong sound goes off. We come back as we can see AJ on the ramp smirking as he has escaped with Kane and Bray weirdly smirking as well?

    We cut to the back as we can see The Gentleman society in Bryan's office as they are showing Bryan what happened at the end of the Cruiserweight title match calling it ungentlemanly. Bryan says he has yet to make a decision on the Cruiserweight title picture but says he will let everyone know by the end of the night. Simon Gotch wants to argue with Bryan and demand a rematch but Gallagher tells him to stay calm and he trust Bryan will make a fair decision.

    Match 3: TJP and Kendrick vs Blood Warriors

    We cut to the ring as the new team of TJP and Kendrick take on the Blood Warriors as they pick up another impressive win as Kendrick uses a couple of cheap tricks to take control in this match and defeat their more experienced as a team opponents. Kendrick in the end is able to make Crews tap out with the Bully choke for the win. After the match the pair pose in the ring motioning they want a tag team title shot.

    Winners via submission: TJP and Kendrick (8:20)

    We cut backstage to see American Alpha talking with Shane McMahon about their next tag team title match. Shane tells them they will be facing TJP and Kendrick in 2 weeks time. Gable says they will take on all comers and asks what next? Shane says he has a special idea for the pair if they win and will let them know next week what is to come at Roadblock if they win. Gable says whatever it is they are ready willing and gable.

    Neville makes his way to the ring to a pop from the crowd. He tells them he is not here to waste time before calling out Tyson Kidd right now. Tyson Kidd makes his way to the ring with his Cruiserweight title in hand. He tells Neville that he already had his shot and he is not wasting time on a failure like him. Neville quips back Kidd is avoiding him as he knows he cannot beat him. Kidd tells Neville he can beat him anytime any place FACT. Neville dares him to face him right now but Kidd smirks saying he knows what he is doing and will decline thanks. Neville tells Kidd he cannot run away forever however before anything else can be said Bryan's music hits to a pop from the crowd.

    He tells Tyson Kidd he does not get to choose who he next challenger is I do. He says he already one challenger trying to avoid any challenges he is not going to allow another and in two weeks time it will be Neville vs Jack Gallagher with the winner facing you for the Cruiserweight title at Roadblock. Kidd says I have beaten both and I will not stand for this FACT. Neville though connects with a kick to the skull to a pop from the crowd holding the title in the air before telling Kidd LONG LIVE THE KING.

    Match 4: The Usos vs Rich Swann and Mustafa Ali

    The Usos here pick up the win putting away Rich Swann with a double superkick to the face in what was a decent encounter with Mustafa Ali putting on a really good showing when he got the chance in the ring but in the end could not defeat on of the top teams of the modern era. After the match the pair grab a microphone.

    Winners via pinfall: The Usos (10:20)

    Jimmy says they are being overlooked at present. They declare themselves one of the best teams these past few years but we keep getting passed up. We are multi time tag team champions and you can consider this whole division on lock because as soon as we get a title shot we are taking our titles back and there is nothing American Alpha can do about it!

    We cut to the backstage area to see Miz in a movie style make up chair chatting with his wife saying he should be getting an automatic spot in the Elimination chamber after lasting the longest in the rumble not AJ Styles. As he is talking Zack Sabre Jr walks into the room with his tag partner Noam Dar.

    Dar turns to Sabre calling Miz a dafty with Sabre asking what that is with Dar whispering it to him and Sabre nodding agreeing. Miz questions what those two want. Sabre says he is looking for the IC title that he is planning on winning soon. Miz tells Sabre he has done nothing to earn a title match against him. Sabre reminds Miz he eliminated him from the rumble. Miz calls it a fluke and tells Sabre unlike him he will win his Elimination chamber qualifier and earn his chance to win the WWE title at Wrestlemania once again storming off with Maryse as the Supernova wizards chuckle as we cut to the ring to see Breezedango standing front and centre.

    Breezedango say the crowd should be cheering them not booing them as they are gracing them with their presence. They tells the crowd they dream of being this good looking and having the skills they do. Breeze mentions beating Rhyno on Main event when Rhyno's music hits as he makes his way out as Breezedango look a little worried.

    Rhyno says he has had a rough few months and he felt he needed the help of an old foe to help him deal with the new threats on the scene as he stands on the ramp when R V D makes his way out joining his former rival on the ramp as they head to the ring telling Breezedango that Bryan made a match between the teams next.

    Match 5: Breezedango vs Rhyno and RVD

    Rhyno and RVD end up using their superior experience to control the match though they do not have the teamwork perfect just yet however it looks like they are about to win when Breeze drags Fandango out of the ring before RVD can hit the 5 star frog splash as they head up the ramp giving RVD and Rhyno the count-out win.

    Winners via count-out: Rhyno and RVD (7:19)

    We cut away to see Kevin Owens and Randy Orton making their way through the back as we get ready for the main event.

    Main Event: Falls count anywhere: Kevin Owens vs Randy Orton

    Both men put on a great battle here with the action spilling out of the ring very early on. The finish comes when they end up backstage and end up in a car park as they battle outside as Kevin Owens picks up Randy Orton before hitting him with a pop-up powerbomb onto a car in the car park before covering him for the massive win.

    Winner via pinfall: Kevin Owens (18:10)

    Smackdown comes to an end as with Kevin Owens standing tall onto of the car over Randy having picked up a massive victory here as has a sick smile on his face as he stands tall.

    Current matchcard for roadblock:

    WWE title match: John Cena © vs Dean Ambrose

    Main Event Re: WWE: A different future



    January 19th

    The Vaudevillians vs Tony Nese and Hunico

    The Vaudevillians here take on the pairing of Nese and Hunico, as Nese has to make do with other tag team partners till Drew Gulak returns from his injury. He also has no luck here as Aiden English hits the Director's cut for the 3 count.

    Winners via pinfall: The Vaudevillians (8:19)

    2MB vs Hype Bros w/Curt Hawkins

    2MB here take on the Hype Bros as they look to regain some momentum after their team lost to Rhodes Scholars on the Rumble pre-show. Curt Hawkins sits this one out as Mojo takes his place and they pick up the win with Zack Ryder hitting Jinder Mahal with rough ryder.

    Winners via pinfall: The Hype Bros w/Curt Hawkins (7:53)

    Alexa Bliss vs Emma

    Alexa Bliss here takes on Emma as two of the women who took part in the ladder match face off as the commentary team mention the fact that Nikki Bella has just been announced to be out for 6-8 months after picking up a neck injury due to the Sparkle splash from Alexa Bliss during the ladder match at Royal Rumble. They hype up how viscous and mean she can be with her sneaking the win by pulling Emma's tights stealing the 3 count before heading out of the ring smirking at Emma as she heads up the ramp.

    Winner via pinfall: Alexa Bliss (8:18)

    Main event: Sheamus vs Kalisto

    Sheamus takes on Kalisto in a fun match with Kalisto using his speed as well as trying to use any advantage he can get over the celtic warrior in this encounter but in the end Sheamus is too much for him and connects with the Celtic cross for the 3 count.

    Winner via pinfall: Sheamus (10:19)

    Nikki Bella out with neck injury:

    Nikki Bellla picked up a neck injury at a recent house show and is out for 8 months. Alexa Bliss's Sparkle splash will be used as the reason she is off TV. Plans for Nikki involved her in joining Paige in her feud with the BFF's but her spot will have to be replaced with someone else with Nikki once again on the shelf.

    Draft plans:

    For the new year the current plans are for the draft to take place on a network special after Money in the bank. How the draft will work is still being talked about in the company with many expecting it to be the lottery structure though that may change. Also expect a few calls up post-mania from NXT as they look strength both rosters. WWE are also strongly considering moving the Cruiserweights to Raw due to the extra hour on their show and adding a second women's division to Smackdown. The feeling in the company is if they have a second women's division on Smackdown there will need to be multiple calls up from NXT or the Mae Young Classic to make sure there is enough women on both division for them to be healthy.

    Mick Foley as GM:

    Mick Foley is planning on leaving his position as Raw GM some time around or after Wrestlemania. Mick Foley has enjoyed his time in the position but needs to go away for surgery. Who takes his place is unknown whether HHH becomes the sole GM of Monday Night Raw as they are still deciding who to put in his place with a number of options being considered.

    Raw Re: WWE: A different future



    January 23rd

    We start the show off as the Club makes their way out to the ring after the replay of their attack on the Royal Rumble winner Sami Zayn last week. They look very smug as they bring Finn Balor down to the ring on their shoulders as they smugly look into the crowd. As they get to the ring they let Finn get off and climb onto the apron before he steps into the ring with a smirk in his face before his boys follow after him.

    He gets in the ring before asking for a microphone as he waits for the crowd to stop booing as he chuckles in the ring. He tells the crowd they are as stupid as Sami Zayn is. He says last week Sami gave up his Wrestlemania title shot the moment he put it on the line against the real rock and rolla. He says he is already getting ready for when he wins the World title at Wrestlemania and at Fastlane his boys will take their back tag team titles.

    He smirks saying Sami is good but when the pressure is on he can never get the job done. Finn reminds the crowd of his long reign in NXT and the fact that he has beaten the current World champion before. He then talks about Shinsuke Nakamura telling the fans he was never able to live to my great heights in NXT and a prince is always more fun then a king. He tells then says that the other two are former members of a faction with half of the skill of the Club which gets massive heat for disrespecting the SHIELD. However before he can carry on running his mouth Sami Zayn makes his way out to the ring.

    He says Finn for all of his words struggles to back up what he is saying. He mentions the fact that Finn failed to even qualify for the Rumble and mentions that he knows a little of his time in Japan but didn't he always need a goon squad to have his back. Anderson and Gallows butt in saying Finn is not just their leader but their friend before surrounding Zayn getting ready to attack him when the tag team champions run out to the ring confronting The Club.Finn tells his boys to leave not wanting to fight now the numbers are even as Rhodes Scholars and Zayn dare them to get back in the ring but the Club shout from the ramp they will pick the time and the place to fight them.

    The Club are shown walking through the back when they bump into the Golden truth. They mock Goldust calling him Cody's freak of a brother. Goldust tells Finn maybe be he does not know what a star looks like before doing the weird cough thing he does. He then challenges Finn to a match later to teach him some respect. Finn smirks telling Goldust he will check with HHH but he would be glad to speed up his trip to the retirement home before walking off with the rest of the Club.

    Match 1: Kofi Kingston w/ New Day vs Bo Dallas

    Kofi Kingston takes on Bo Dallas here and is able to put him away in quick fashion whilst his fellow teammates cheer him on at ringside.

    Winner via pinfall: Kofi Kingston (5:20)

    We cut to the backstage area after the match as we see Braun Strowman once again attacking someone backstage as he has thrown Big Show into a wall backstage before picking up a crate smashing it onto the giant's ankle. However before he can do anything else Jericho jumps on Strowman's back locking in a sleeper hold calling Strowman a stupid idiot! He keeps it locked on as Strowman seems to be fading however he slams Jericho's back into a wall forcing him to let go. However before anything else can happen Mick Foley appears telling them both to stop right now. He then makes a match between Braun Strowman and Chris Jericho later on in the show. Strowman snarls before telling Jericho that he is not finished with him yet storming off through the back.

    We then cut to the ring as Naomi is already in the ring as the Women's champion Bayley makes her entrance for the match next. However as she gets into the ring Sasha Banks makes her way to ringside as she sits on the commentary desk with Enzo, Graves and Cole.

    Match 2: Bayley vs Naomi

    Bayley takes on Naomi in a very competitive match whilst Sasha talks about Bayley but mostly speaks in backhanded compliments about Bayley calling her soft and naive saying that whilst she is her best friend she will take her title back saying this is Raw not NXT and in her time as champion she has grown even stronger and badder then her NXT days. Bayley picks up the win with the bayley to belly for the 3 count.

    Winner via pinfall: Bayley (9:20)

    After the match Bayley celebrates as Naomi gets up Sasha Banks attacks her from behind for no reason! Bayley questions what Banks is doing but Banks tells her you are too soft and promises that is the reason she won't stay champion. She walks off as Bayley checks on Naomi clearly not a fan of her friends actions.

    We then cut to the back as we can see Mick Foley in his office when New Day come into his office playing their trumpets and clapping. Foley asks how he can help the group with Xaiver Woods saying if could get Foley on upupdowndown. Kofi and Big E give him a funny look as Woods quips hey Foley would bring views.

    Big E jokingly asks if he broke him brain not his arm before saying he had a request for Fastlane and who he will defend this title against. Foley says he is open to suggestions and wonders who it is. Kofi then jumps in saying how about your boy Mr 24/7 the man who drops the boom Kofi Kingston. Big E tells Foley he would be honoured to face his friend at Fastlane and could not think of a better battle. Foley tells Big E and Kofi they have their match. Kofi starts trashing talking telling Big E he is going down like he did on madden over the weekend with Big E saying he got lucky and Kofi said he was hard at work in the lab as they jokingly banter with each other as we cut elsewhere.

    We see Sami Zayn walking through the backstage area when he comes face to face with Roman Reigns. Reigns snarls and tells Zayn to get out of my way as he has a contract signing to get ready for later tonight. Zayn tells Reigns he will be glad to like was glad to eliminate Roman from the Rumble. Reigns turns on his heels at this point not taking that comment well telling Zayn it was a fluke and when I win the World title at Fastlane I will crush you and your fans hopes as always. Reigns storms off as Zayn looks on very annoyed by Reigns's cocky comments as we cut to the ring for the next match between Shinsuke Nakamura and Hideo Itami.

    Match 3: Shinsuke Nakamura vs Hideo Itami

    Shinsuke Nakamura here goes for the quick finish once again early but Hideo has it scouted and dodges. The match carries on as normal with both men hitting each other with lots of hard strikes as they seem intent on not just winning but proving who is the true king of strong style.

    As we get towards the end as Hideo's temper gets the better of him causing him to make a misstep when he is locking in the GTS as Shinsuke slips out of it locking in the cross arm-breaker onto Hideo Itami. Hideo tries to fight out of it for about a minute but in the end he has to tap out as Shinsuke picks up a massive win here.

    Winner via submission: Shinsuke Nakamura (17:20)

    Shinsuke poses for the crowd as he heads up the ramp doing his usual antics as he sees Hideo Itami rise in the ring and points at him almost mocking him before heading through the back. Hideo in the ring throws a tantrum clearly very annoyed before heading to the back selling the damage done to his arm.

    Elsewhere we can see Samoa Joe walking through the backstage area with the World title on his shoulder when he gets approached by Charly Caruso. Samoa Joe is once again dressed in his suit as Charly asks him how he is feeling about his upcoming contract signing. He says he is not happy with the fact that he could lose his title without being pinned or submitted however he intends on keeping his title.

    Suddenly a voice says I would hope so I like a challenge as Finn Balor walks onto the scene flanked by the Club. He tells Joe he would be very happy to see Joe walk out as champion as it would be good to face someone he defeated in the past numerous times as champion when he wins the World title at Wrestlemania. Samoa Joe reminds Balor that he beat him for the title as well. Balor smirks saying it was time for me to move on and teasing Joe saying how about I give you a warm up for Fastlane as you try to fight 3 on 1. Joe threatens to break Balor's jaw to stop his mouth running anymore before saying get in my face again I will not just choke you out but then destroy the Club for good. Finn Balor smirks leading his boys towards the ring.

    Match 4: Goldust w/R-Truth vs Finn Balor w/The Club

    Goldust here takes on Finn and it is clear that whilst he is fired up wanting to teach the cocky upstart a lesson and do his brother a favour he is unable to keep up with the Rock and Rolla here who puts him away with the Coup D'Grace for the 3 count but he does not seem done with Goldust just yet.

    Winner via pinfall: Finn Balor (7:24)

    R-Truth slides into the ring to check on his partner when he is joined by Anderson and Gallows who start to lay into him with punches as Balor picks up Goldust looking for 1916 when Rhodes Scholars music hits as they make their way out with Cody running to the ring like a man possessed.

    Finn and The Club as soon Rhodes Scholars come out leave once again clearly annoying the hell out of the tag team champions with Cody looking to get his hands on them very badly after what they just attempted to do before he checks on his brother to make sure he is OK as The Club head up the ramp smirking.

    We then come back from the ad break as Rusev makes his way to the ring with Lana by his side. They get into the ring as Lana says that her husband was cost his chance at winning the rumble by a man who should have stayed gone, a man who he showed that he did not belong your so called American Hero Kurt Angle. Rusev mocks him saying when I crush him and break his neck once again. However before he can carry on Kurt Angle makes his way out with Shelton Benjamin by his side.

    Both men come down to the ring with the YOU SUCK chants as Kurt quips I think they are not for me for once. Rusev says very funny but we will see who is laughing. Kurt Angle says he will fight Rusev anyt... when he gets sent crashing down to the floor as THE MERCENARIES APPEAR ATTACKING KURT ANGLE! Wade Barrett hits Wasteland onto the outside floor as Shelton tries to stop them but Rusev cuts him off attacking him before throwing him into the steel steps! Nick Aldis then picks Shelton up hitting him with a powerbomb onto the the barricade. Rusev then grabs a hold of Shelton before locking in the accolade onto Shelton until he passes out. He then leaves up the ramps with the Mercenaries as Angle comes to check on his friend who is having to be helped to the back.

    We then have a video package play once again as it hypes up the impending arrival of Mickie James as it mentions she is a 5 times women champion and a 1 time divas champion. It finishes saying she is returning at Fastlane. We cut to Alexa Bliss watching saying she is not impressed before walking off as we cut to an ad break.

    Match 5: Tye Dillinger vs Primo w/Epico

    Once again Tye Dillinger has a showcase match as he looks to pick up a stream of wins as he hits the Tye Breaker for the 3 count picking up the win. He mocks Primo after the match giving him a 5 for his performance. Epico gets in the ring shouting at him and can be seen challenging him to a match next week which Tye says yes to.

    Winner via pinfall: Tye Dillinger (6:07)

    We see Seth Rollins walking through the back with a slight limp when Finn Balor and The Club walk onto the scene. Rollins rolls his eyes and says oh it is you. Finn says what he means by that? Rollins tells Balor that he always though he had a big ego himself but Finn's is something else. Balor tells Rollins to make sure that leg is 100% because if you win the World title you will need to be 100% to even have a chance against me. Rollins leaves but smirks saying you mentioned the SHIELD earlier on in the night. Balor says what of it? Rollins tells Finn he broke the SHIELD and he can destroy the Club too.

    Braun makes his entrance for this match for as he storms down to the ring. Chris Jericho is next to make his way to the ring and waste no time in going right after the monster among men here.

    Match 6: Braun Strowman vs Chris Jericho

    Jericho thanks to him going after Strowman right from the off is in control of the match in the early stages but it does not last long as Strowman is able to regain control. Jericho has a few hopes spots and even is able to lock in a sleeper hold to Strowman but in the end Jericho cannot put away the monster among men who picks up the win against Jericho here.

    Winner via pinfall: Braun Strowman (8:48)

    Strowman though does not look done after the match has finish as he moves towards Jericho when CESARO RUNS OUT TO THE RING! The Swiss superman charges down to the ring and hits Strowman with a massive European uppercut, then another and another and another before sending Strowman out of the ring. Strowman stares at Cesaro before heading off shouting he is not finished with him just yet as Cesaro lets him know anytime any place as he leaves Jericho in the ring to recover.

    Big Show can be seen backstage having watched the match on the monitor as the doctor checks on his leg when HHH walks in asking how he is. Doctor says Show needs to take a few weeks off. Show says no to this wanting payback on Strowman but HHH tells Big Show that he is telling him to take a few weeks off. He tells Show you can come back later and get payback. Show looks angry before saying you let Rollins run around with a knee injury but not me? Remind me why I ever helped the Authority again as he goes to leave with HHH looking on very annoyed.

    We then go back to the ring as the BFF's make their way out to the ring with the leader of the group Summer Rae out in front. The slide into the ring as Summer Rae says it feels good to back. She says last week we showed once again what happens when you have good friends by your side and that Becky was just in the wrong place at the wrong time and there is no one who can stop us as a group. However before they can carry on Emma and Dana Brooks make their way down to the ring. Emma laughs at the group saying no one can stop you? We beg to differ as they head to the ring for the match next.

    Match 7: Emma and Dana Brooks vs Summer Rae and Carmella w/Tamina

    Emma and Dana Brooks having more experience working together as a team so they end up in control for most of the match however in the end the BFF's pick up the win thanks to Tamina on the outside before Summer connects with the Summer crush to Dana Brooks.

    Winners via pinfall: Summer Rae and Carmella (6:10)

    After the match however the BFF's are not done as Tamina drags Emma out of the ring before lifting her up hitting her with a Samon drop on the outside. Carmella and Summer Rae then beat down Dana Brooks in the ring leaving her laid out as once again the BFF's stand tall.

    Sami Zayn can be seen heading through the back when he bumps into the World champion Samoa Joe. Joe smirks saying you made a massive mistake last week. Zayn smirks saying what you think me putting my shot on the line against Finn Balor was a bad idea? Samoa Joe smirks saying no your mistake was coming for my title getting in Zayn's face. Sami tells Samoa Joe we will see warning Joe he might not make it to Mania. Joe fires back that Zayn also might not make it as we cut away to the last match of the night.

    Match 8: Real Americans vs 2MB

    The Real Americans here take on 2MB in a fun match with Mark Henry and Jack Swagger put on a good performance here with them picking up the win with Henry connecting with the World Strongest slam to Heath Slater for the win.

    Winners via pinfall: Real Americans (8:54)

    We then cut to an break before we come back to the ring as HHH and Mick Foley are stood there with a table, a contract to sign and 4 chairs as we gets ready for the contract signing for the main event of Fastlane. HHH welcomes us back as he hypes up the main event for Fastlane before inviting the World champion Samoa Joe out to the ring first. Samoa Joe makes his way out in his suit with a scowl on his face as he makes his way down to the ring before taking a seat.

    Samoa Joe picks up the pen and wastes no time signing the contract. HHH then lifts the microphone up to his mouth however Joe says I have something to say to you first. HHH gives him a look but says go on then. Samoa Joe tells HHH he knows he came up with this match and not Mick Foley as you are still angry I destroyed your boys knee once again. He tells HHH that not only will I keep this title but I will not just injure his knee but break it!

    HHH looks like he is about to fire back as Seth Rollins makes his way out and heads to the ring as quickly as possible even if he is struggling a little bit due to his knee. Seth grabs a hold of a microphone before saying one second as he puts his name onto the contract before asking if Joe has been online reading conspiracy theories telling Joe that HHH does not want him in this match as he is worried for my safety. Joe tells him HHH is smart because anytime anyone steps into the ring with me their career is in danger!

    Rollins smirks before saying my knee is nearly back to full strength even after the damage done to it by Samoa Joe promising to bring an end to his title reign and finally get his World title back where it belongs. Joe though steps forward threatening to make sure Rollins does not make it to Fastlane. Both men get in each other face as HHH holds Rollins and Foley holds Joe back when Roman Reigns's music hits as he also makes his way out in a suit looking very smug as he slowly heads down to the ring.

    He gets into the ring and laughs at both men both signing the contract. He then tells both men that they are fighting each other ignoring the real threat, the big dawg of this yard and the true face of the company me! He tells the pair not only will he show them who the top Samoan in the company is but also end the career of Rollins for good. Rollins welcomes him to try when Joe pushes him out of the way threatening to destroy Reigns right now.

    Shinsuke makes his way out to the ring as the 3 men can be seen staring each other down as he poses for the crowd before stepping into the ring and he signs the contract as well. He then asks for a microphone. Shinsuke says he has won the NXT title and will win the World title before saying you guys have a saying. Talk is cheap before he hits Reigns in the face with a Kinsahsa knocking him out of the ring. Rollins meanwhile grabs a hold of Joe kicking him in the chest before he connects with a pedigree to Samoa Joe. He then picks up the World title as him and Shinsuke stare each other down to end Raw.

    Matchcard for Fastlane:

    SD Live Re: WWE: A different future



    January 24th

    We start off Smackdown LIVE with The Miz making his way out to the ring to heat from the crowd with Maryse by his side. He gets on the microphone telling this crowd that once again he has to face someone he has already beaten instead of getting what is rightfully owed to me. He says I will beat Sheamus one more time and go on to Wrestlemania to repeat what the Ultimate Warrior did and become not just the greatest IC CHAMPION OF ALL TIME BUT THE MOST A-LIST WWE CHAMPION OF ALL TIME! He throws the microphone down before kissing his wife who heads to the outside with his IC title when Sheamus makes his way to the ring.

    Sheamus has a scowl on his face clearly still not a fan of Miz after their recent interactions as he storms down to the ring. However before the match starts Zack Sabre Jr makes his way out to ringside as well before taking a headset and sitting on the commentary desk. He lets JBL, Booker T and Mauro know he is here to do a bit of scouting of our IC champion here.

    Match 1: Elimination chamber qualifier: Sheamus vs The Miz w/Maryse

    Sheamus starts off the match in control until the usual Miz and Maryse shenanigans allow Miz to get back into the match and show us why he is the IC champion. However after a while Zack tells the commentary team that talking lots is not his thing and wants to get an up close view leaving his position. Towards the end whilst the ref is distracted as Maryse tries too get involved but Zack Sabre Jr stops her. The Miz goes mental shouting as Sabre to stay the hell away from his wife distracting the Miz long enough for Sheamus to connect with a Brouge kick to the face and earn himself a spot in the Elimination chamber!

    Winner via pinfall: Sheamus (9:25)

    The Miz can be seen arguing with the ref after the match as Sheamus heads to the back happy with his win as Zack Sabre Jr walks off smirking.

    We come back from the ad break to see Bryan in his office going over a few things when The Miz bursts in with Maryse. Bryan rolls his eyes asking what do you want now? Miz says did you not see the travesty that just occurred? Bryan says yes he saw Maryse try to interfere and Sabre stopped her. Miz tells Bryan that he is not letting Sabre get away with interfering in his business.

    Bryan says Sabre has an Elimination chamber qualifier next week but after that he is free so The Miz can have his match with him there. Miz smiles saying for once you are being a good GM. Bryan says thanks Miz and says that means he will not mind putting his IC title on the line. The Miz freaks out saying WHAT? Bryan says if you want a match with Sabre you need to put your title on the line. Miz protests but Bryan tells him that since Sabre eliminated him from the Rumble he has no argument. Take it or leave it. The Miz and Maryse go off in a huff as Bryan goes back to his work.

    We then cut to the ring as Jack Gallagher makes his way to the ring with his fellow Gentleman society members in tow. He says hello to the crowd before saying he wanted to take a little time to speak to the man he will be facing next week and give him a show of respect before they do battle. He waits in the ring when the King of the Cruiserweights makes his way out to a pop from the crowd.

    Neville makes his way down to the ring to a pop from the crowd as he looks a bit confused by Jack Gallagher's comments. He asks him if he knows how big a deal his match next week is and you want to play nice? Gallagher says he knows how good Neville and wanted to show respect to his opponent like a true gentleman. Neville tells Gallagher he needs to wake up and that if you by some miracle beat me you lose if you act like a gentleman against someone like Kidd. He calls Kidd a snake in the grass who will do whatever it takes to keep his title. He is no gentleman and if you bring that gentleman attitude to the ring with me next week I will beat you in record time. Gallagher then fires back saying if you had a bit more class you might have gotten a spot in the CWC. That comment sets Neville off as he throws the mic down with Simon Gotch and Aiden English breaking the fight up when Tyson Kidd's music hits to boos from the crowd flanked by his friends the Usos.

    Tyson Kidd has a smug look on his face saying I am enjoying this FACT. Carry on guys because neither of you deserve a chance to face me for this title and I will never lose this title especially to you two. I will do whatever it takes to keep my title whilst you two are too nice and play by the rules. Neville threatens to break his neck once again to show him how nice he is. Kidd looks furious at that line and says you will regret that FACT as he leaves. Aiden English grabs the mic before breaking into song calling Kidd and The Usos cowards. The Usos say what we have is this division on lock and we will not rise to your tricks as they head off to the back with Tyson Kidd. The segment ends with Neville and Gallagher staring each other down with Neville warning he is no gentleman and will do what it takes to get his hands on Kidd before we cut to an ad break.

    Match 2: Elimination chamber qualifier: Kevin Owens vs RVD w/Rhyno

    Kevin Owens here takes on RVD in a qualifying match for the Elimination Chamber with Rhyno at ringside supporting his new tag team partner. However in the end RVD is not able to keep up with Kevin Owens who is showing a lot of aggression before he puts RVD away with a pop-up powerbomb for the 3 count. After the match Kevin Owens shouts to the crowd he is coming for what should be his the WWE title as we cut to an ad break.

    Winner via pinfall: Kevin Owens (8:23)

    We cut to the back as we can see Tyson Kidd chatting with his friends the Usos as they go through the back when Shane McMahon appears. He does not look happy as The Usos shout to him what is up. Shane says he is a busy man as is Bryan so this is a warning from both of them.Think about what you guys do this week and next week very carefully. Tyson Kidd however smirks saying they should never have a chance to face him in the first place FACT before walking off with the Usos smirking as they leave.

    We cut to the back with RVD and Rhyno talking about RVD's loss earlier on in the night to Kevin Owens. Rhyno says that there is no shame in losing to someone as good as Owens but RVD says still sucks when we lose bro. However at this point Breezedango walk in with a pair of selfie sticks. They see lets take pity on these unfashionable losers and take a selfie with them. Rhyno threatens to destroy those sticks and stick them somewhere where the sun does not shine. Breezedango walk off saying off angry much as RVD and Rhyno shake their heads once again at the pairs antics.

    The next match starts as both team have made their way out in the ad break as TJP and Kendrick have a warm up match here against the Vaudevillians with American Alpha making their way out to take a seat on commentary. They let the team know they are here to watch their opponents and maybe future ones as well when they win on Tuesday.

    Match 3: TJP and Kendrick vs The Vaudevillians

    Whilst on commentary they mention that Shane promised the pair a chance at singles glory if they win next week with Jordan earning a spot in the Elimination chamber and Gable getting a future Cruiserweight title shot. The Vaudevillians put on a really good showing and even have some hope spots where it looks like they may end up winning however part way through the match The Usos make their way out distracting the Vaudevillians long enough for TJP to take advantage and hit the detonation kick for the 3 count.

    Winners via pinfall: TJP and Kendrick (6:23)

    The Usos mock the Vaudevillians when American Alpha get in their face asking what they are doing out here as the Usos eye up the tag titles on American Alpha's shoulders with a smirk as they tease fighting them when TJP and Kendrick knock down the champs from behind before grabbing a hold of the tag team titles holding them in the air.

    We then cut to the backstage where we can see Renee Young as she is interviewing Dean Ambrose. She has a nice smile on her face before asking Dean how he is feeling ahead of Roadblock. He tells her honestly a bit annoyed. He lost the title he held for over 200 days but that is the risk he took when he wanted to beat both men. He says he wants John Cena at 100% and to get back his title. He says he will get some joy out of seeing him beat Corbin up. Renee comments maybe Dean has some respect for Cena now. Ambrose though says just because I want to see him beat up Corbin does not mean I like or respect that part-timer. Corbin for no reason got in my business and if he even thinks about getting in my business again I will destroy him. He says that he is counting down the days till he gets a chance to beat Cena down and take back his spot as the Kingpin of Smackdown Live.

    Randy Orton makes his way out to the ring first for this Elimination chamber match as he waits in the ring for his opponent when Bray makes his way down to the ring speaking on the microphone. He leads his family saying that Orton is a man who has lost his way but Bray is a smart man who knows never to trust a snake like Orton but he is a kind god so has some advice. Find the anger and the hate because you are a shadow living in a former viper's body. Orton look very fired up and as soon as Bray enters the ring goes on the attack not taking the words Bray said very well.

    Match 4: Elimination chamber qualifier: Bray Wyatt w/ Wyatt Family vs Randy Orton

    Orton is in control at the start of the match showing a lot of anger and aggression here working over Bray as he looks to prove Bray wrong and prove he still has fangs however he has to be careful of the looming threat on the outside. As the match goes on though Bray is able to survive the early storm and starts to take control of the match using the damage that Orton suffered last week when he got powerbombed onto a car by him. He also starts to speak to Orton throughout the match calling him soft and saying he needs to find his inner darkness. In the finish though Orton is able to counter Bray and take him down to the mat before getting ready for the RKO when Kane climbs onto the apron which distracts the ref allowing Harper to run in and TAKE THE RKO FOR HIS LEADER allowing Bray to take advantage hitting Orton with sister Abigail.

    Winner via pinfall: Bray Wyatt (12:22)

    Bray heads up the ramp with his family as he laughs Rowan and Kane help Harper towards the back as their leader has earned himself a place in the Elimination chamber.

    AJ Styles is seen backstage when he is approached by Tom Phillips who asks him how he feels about the result. AJ Styles smirks saying he knows that Bray is still not over being stopped in the rumble but h eis going have to get used to losing to AJ Styles because I intend to go to Wrestlemania and win the WWE title no matter who I have to face on the way to Mania or at Mania itself.

    We cut to the back as we see Johnny Gargano in Daniel Bryan's office when Tommasa Cimapa walks in. Gargano gets ready for a fight when Bryan tells him to stop. Cimapa smirks before telling Gargano to be a good little boy. Bryan says he called the pair in here to tell them that next week they will be facing each other one more time. Cimapa protests saying he has moved on from Gargano and is better then him. Bryan however says then prove it next week as that is my final decision. Cimapa storms off whilst Gargano thanks Bryan for the match before heading off.

    Match 5: Lince Dorado and Mustafa Ali vs Ariya Davari and Tony Nese

    Mustafa Ali teams up with Lince Dorado here as they take on the pairing of Davari and Nese. Mustafa Ali is able to pick up the win for his team hitting the 054 on Nese for the 3 count

    Winners via pinfall: Lince Dorado and Mustafa Ali (10:52)

    We cut to the backstage area where we can see Zack Sabre Jr watching some more matches backstage when Noam Dar walks into the room as both men share a hug. Dar says he just came to wish his wee boy good luck in his match next week against Corbin for a spot in the Elimination chamber and his IC title match against that dafty The Miz. Sabre thanks him before asking what Dar is up to for the mean time. Dar says he is going to make sure he gets a chance at the Cruiserweight title as both men share a laugh as Dar invites him to a local pub. Sabre questions if he is old enough to drink in the US with Dar saying you are a funny lad before saying lets go.

    Main event: John Cena vs Baron Corbin

    We cut to the main event of the evening as John Cena takes on the lone wolf Baron Corbin as he looks to gain a measure of payback. Corbin starts the match in very aggressive manner pounding on John Cena but once again his anger leads him making a mistake as John takes control of the match and in the end he is able to put away Corbin with the AA as John Cena stands tall in the ring holding his WWE title in the air for the crowd.

    Winner via pinfall: John Cena (11:23)

    As John Cena heads up the ramp Dean Ambrose makes his way out to mostly cheers with once again a few kids booing Ambrose due to his rivalry with their hero John Cena. They have a stare down with Ambrose trash talking Cena when suddenly he pushes Cena over... as Corbin was trying to attack John Cena from behind however Ambrose kicks Corbin in the gut and connects with Dirty Deeds! Dean Ambrose then stands tall over the downed Corbin as he stares at Cena saying I want no excuses this time as Cena lets out a smile saying you got it!

    Current matchcard for roadblock:

    WWE title match: John Cena © vs Dean Ambrose

    Re: WWE: A different future

    An interesting couple of weeks since the Royal Rumble. I'm not the biggest fan of Finn Balor just coming in and trying to stake claim to Zayn's rightful Wrestlemania title match. Hopefully with Balor taking the upper hand early on and with nobody at ringside Zayn can win the match and cement his spot as a credible challenger for the title. This also leads me to think that Joe has to win at Fastlane. A new champ would just muddy the waters of the Universal Championship match I think Joe/Zayn is better as a one on one rather than in a triple threat.

    Cesaro and Strowman is also very cool to see but I'm expecting The Monster Among Men to continue to dominate. I'm also keen to see when a certain Beast returns and expecting his plans will have to involve Randy Orton, who took him out.

    On the RAW side I'm also liking Big E versus Kofi. This could be the seed that starts a New Day break up and Big E going up in the card.

    As for Smackdown the Elimination Chamber match should be very interesting and I expect Miz to cost Sabre his spot in the match. With Cena winning the title at RR I don't see him dropping it to Ambrose but a match with AJ Styles looks likely. Really intrigued what plans you have for Kevin Owens too as I'm a big fan. Also a fan of Tyson Kidd and a match with Neville excites me a bit more than one with Jack Gallagher.

    Trying to keep up with this project as there is definitely some things that I am enjoying to read. Wrestlemania should be fun once it comes around and what happens with EWR will definitely keep things moving crazily going forward.

    Main Event Re: WWE: A different future



    January 26th:

    Ryback vs R-Truth

    Ryback here takes on R-Truth as they look to gain a win with neither man having the best start to 2017 however Ryback seems to be missing a step allowing R-Truth to take advantage and pick up the shock win here.

    Winner via pinfall: R-Truth (6:18)

    Apollo Crews vs Kalisto

    Kalisto here takes on Apollo Crews as he looks to take out his anger over his recent losses working over Apollo pulling off as many moves as he can. In the end even with Crews's size advantage Kalisto is able to put away Crews with the Salisda del Sol for the 3 count.

    Winner via pinfall: Kalisto (11:04)

    Rich Swann vs Hunico

    This ends up being a short match with Hunico getting picking up a key win here as he hits the falling star to put away Swann in very quick fashion.

    Winner via pinfall: Huncio (4:26)

    Alexa Bliss vs Alicia Fox

    Alexa Bliss here picks up the win in surprisingly short fashion using her anger and aggression to pick up the key win here as she hits Twisted Bliss for good measure.

    Winner via pinfall: Alexa Bliss (5:59)

    After the match Bliss grabs a microphone and stands in the ring. She tells the crowd that at the Royal Rumble she proved how tough and devastating she can be when she re-injured Nikki Bella's neck promising that she will never come back to the WWE. Bliss says being that much of a destructive force should warrant a title shot but Bayley had to give her best friend a shot ahead of me. Bliss says she is blissed off and then we have a relic from the past coming into my territory? Not happening before challenging Mickie James saying she spoke to HHH and at Fastlane you will make your return against me! She throws the microphone down before seeing Alicia Fox on the outside of the ring following after her as she sneak attacks her throwing her into the barricade as Main Event comes to an end.

    Matchcard for Fastlane:

    World title fatal 4 way match: Samoa Joe (c) vs Seth Rollins vs Roman Reigns vs Shinsuke Nakamura


    Winner gets the World title match at WM, (No one allowed at ringside): Sami Zayn vs Finn Balor

    WWE tag team titles match: Rhodes Scholars (c) vs The Club

    Women's title match: Bayley (c) vs Sasha Banks

    US title match: Big E (c) vs Kofi Kingston

    Alexa Bliss vs Mickie James

    Matchcard for Wrestlemania:

    World title match: Samoa Joe or Seth Rollins or Roman Reigns or Shinsuke Nakamura vs Sami Zayn or Finn Balor

    Raw Re: WWE: A different future


    January 30th

    Kurt Angle makes his way out to the ring to start the show off with a microphone in hand not looking happy as he marches down to the ring with a purpose. He gets in the ring before letting the crowd know he wants one thing. He demands the Mercenaries and Rusev get out here right now. He is sick of Rusev's sneak attacks and paying off the Mercenaries to do his bidding saying he will not stand for this demanding they make their way out as he will destroy all 3 men right now by himself ITS TRUE ITS TRUE. Graves calls Angle insane on commentary as Rusev's music hits as he is flanked by Lana and The Mercenaries.

    Rusev says Angle is really as stupid as he looks before saying you just sealed your fate telling him he will make sure he knows never to comeback to the WWE and stay away for good. The 3 men surround the ring when Angle smirks telling Rusev he forgot what one of his 3 I's stand for INTELLIGENCE! We see from the crowd Jack Swagger and Mark Henry climb over the barricade taking care of Wade Barrett and Nick Aldis respectfully as Angle charges at Rusev knocking him off the apron to the ring floor!

    Kurt Angle then follows after him as he looks to beat down on Rusev and cause him as much pain as possible. On the other side of the ring Henry has picked up Aldis and slams him down to the ringside floor with a world strongest slam. Jack Swagger picks up Barrett meanwhile connecting with a gutwrench powerbomb to Barrett.

Angle and the Real Americans head to the back as the heels recover around ringside.

    Match 1: Dana Brooks w/Emma vs Tamina w/Summer Rae and Carmella

    These two women face off in what ends up being a short match with Tamina putting away Dana Brooks with ease hitting her with a the Superfly splash for the win. However after the match she does not seem to be done with Dana.

    Winner via pinfall: Tamina (5:20)

    They start to beat down on Dana Brooks when Emma runs into the ring to try to help but it is no use as the numbers game is too much for them as the BFF's look like they are about to commit another one sided beatdown when... Paige and Becky Lynch make their way down to the ring. They charge into the ring chasing the BFF's off and saving the pair from a further beatdown as they dare the BFF's to get back in the ring. Summer however smiles saying not tonight as they head off up the ramp with the babyfaces getting some payback.

    We have a short promo backstage with the Ascension. They bring up Strowman's rampage the other week and say tonight they will take him to the wasteland as revenge for what he did to them.

    Winner via pinfall: Tye Dillinger (7:18)

    We then see Tye heading though the back when he is met with mr no days off Darren Young who gives a sarcastic applause as he is making his way through the back. Darren says that is what a perfect 10 is? I hate to see what a 4 is. Tye smirks asking Young what his point is. Young tells Tye till you step into the ring with a talent like me you are nothing. He then says I will show you what a true talent can do next before walking off as Tye smirks to himself.

    Match 3: Darren Young vs Big Cass

    This match ends up being a massive test for Darren Young especially coming off quite a few losses in recent weeks. He struggles a lot early on as we cut to Tye watching from the back. However he is able to pickup the win by hitting a sneaky eye rake to Big Cass as he goes for the east river crossing before sneaking behind him and locking in the crossface chickenwing to heat from the crowd as he picks up the shock win over Big Cass.

    Winner via submission: Darren Young (10:49)

    Darren Young has a smug look on his face as Big Cass rolls out of the ring in massive pain due to the damage done to his arm.

    Roman Reigns makes his way out to the ring next. The crowd as usual boo the hell out of Reigns as he makes his way into the ring before letting the heat from the crowd start to die down. He says you fans make me laugh with how jealous you are of my greatness. I am the true star of the WWE and there is a reason I was chosen for greatness. However as Roman is gloating in the ring we here Shinsuke Nakmaura's music hit to a pop from the crowd.

    Roman Reigns tells Shinsuke to get the hell out of my ring right now. Shinsuke smirks saying your ring? He tells Reigns that he has a complex and his bite is not going to scare him. Reigns smirks though saying let me show you how bad my bite can be as he charges at Shinsuke going for a superman punch but Shinsuke counters connecting with a kick to the head of Reigns sending him back as a brawl starts.

    Both men end up on the outside after tumbling out of the ring as Shinsuke is in control with kicks to the ribs of Reigns however as he gets ready for one more Reigns grabs a hold of him slamming him to the ringside floor. He then waits for him to rise before hitting the King of Strong style with a brutal spear as he leaves him laying out cold.

    He then grabs a microphone warning Shinsuke to stay out of my yard as he stands over Shinsuke to heat from the crowd as he soaks in the boos before throwing the mic onto the laid out Shinsuke as we cut to an ad break.

    We cut to the back where we can see Finn and his boys walking through the back as they are met by Charly Caruso. Finn says hey Charly before telling her we have something special tonight for the main event. He says he has a special hype package for Sami Zayn's career tonight. Gallows then lets us know that he is fighting that freak's partner R-Truth later on in the show tonight whilst Karl Anderson smirks. We then cut elsewhere as cut to a locker room with Rhodes Scholars talking to each other.

He is going to turn their time in the WWE into a goddamn nightmare when he is done with them. Sandow tells Cody he needs to be smarter saying they want to throw us off our game and we can't let them do that. Cody tells his partner he is right and says sorry for his outburst. Sandow says all is forgiven as they hug each other before cut to an ad break an the next match on the show.

    Sasha Banks and Noami make their way to the ring with Naomi asking for this match after the sneak attack by Banks after her match last week as she looks to gain a measure of payback for this as well as potentially earning herself a future Women's title match. Bayley makes her way down to the ringside area sitting on commentary as Sasha waves to her friend as she makes her way down to the ring.

    Match 4: Sasha Banks vs Naomi

    Sasha Banks starts off the match looking to inflict as much pain as possible as she looks to show Bayley why she is too soft but Sasha is taking her time looking to inflict as much pain as possible to Naomi as possible. This though does come back to bite her as it allows Naomi back into the match. Bayley gets into an argument on commentary with Graves who says Sasha is right saying he enjoyed her rise in NXT but this is Raw and she needs to toughen up to stand a chance of keeping her title against the Boss. Bayley however tells Graves she refuses to compromise who she is as a person and she will stay Women's champion by sticking to her morals. In the ring Naomi no matter what she tries cannot put the Boss away and in the end has to tap out to the Bank statement.

    Winner via submission: Sasha Banks (10:13)

    After the match is finished however Sasha stands behind her as it does not look like she is done as looks to inflict more pain to Naomi however Bayley slides into the ring telling her to back off. Sasha looks angry but then turns her face into a smile saying for you Bayley I will before sliding out of the ring and heading to the back as Sasha and Bayley stare each other down before Bayley checks on Naomi in the corner of the ring.

    We cut to the backstage area where we can see Rusev screaming looking for Mick Foley right now. Mick Foley makes his way from around the corner and asks Rusev what he wants as he is a busy man. Rusev asks Mick Foley no he demands a chance to get his hands on Kurt Angle. Foley smirks saying he already had the same idea before telling Rusev that at Fastlane it will be you and The Mercenaries vs Kurt Angle and The Real Americans. Rusev lets out a smirk before promising to crush him for good.

    Match 5: Luke Gallows w/Karl Anderson vs R-Truth w/Goldust

    Luke Gallows takes on R-Truth in a decent match with their partners on the outside of the ring for this encounter with the commentary team making note that Finn is backstage getting ready his segment tonight where he will show off Zayn's career for the world to see. During the match R-Truth puts a great fight reminding us why he is former US and Tag team champion in the WWE but in the end Gallows puts him away to pick up the win for one half of the Club.

    Winner via pinfall: Luke Gallows (8:40)

    After the match they tease attacking the Golden truth when Rhodes Scholars make their way to the ring chasing after the pairing.

HHH without looking up ask Seth what he is here for to which Cesaro replies I want one of the GM's to do what I request. HHH tells Cesaro to stay calm and ask what he can do for him. He tells HHH he knows he has contacts and wants him to get a hold of Heyman as he wants an answer from his beast. HHH says he will see what he can do before saying he can leave now. Cesaro says he is not done and says he wants to face Braun Strowman at Fastlane.

    We come back to Monday Night Raw as Mojo Rawley is in the ring with his partners Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder as they look in good spirits when the World Champion Samoa Joe makes his way down to the ring as his friends wish him good luck leaving him in the ring to his fate.

    Winner via submission: Samoa Joe (2:19)

    Samoa Joe has an angry look before shouting and demanding that Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring right now! There is no answer from Seth so Joe says make your way out here now before I come back there and find you. At this point Seth Rollins appears on the screen with a smirk on his face as the crowd pop at the sight of him.

    Seth Rollins says he wishes he was there tonight but his mentor HHH insisted I take the night off to avoid any chance of you doing anymore damage to my knee. He says however his knee will be back to 100% next week earlier then expected and after speaking to Mick Foley on the phone he was able to set up a match for next week where it will be him and the King of Strong Style vs you and Roman Reigns which gets a massive pop from the crowd.

After the match both men celebrate ahead of their encounter with each other at Fastlane.

    Winner via pinfall: The New Day (8:33)

    We go to an ad break before get the final segment of the evening as Finn Balor makes his way to the ring in his leather jacket as he is followed by the Club for once not making his way out on their shoulders as he slides into the ring with a smirk on his face as he gets ready to speak.

    He welcomes the crowd as tonight he will show us all off the career highlights of Sami Zayn before he inflicts the biggest loss to him of his career when he takes the Royal Rumble title shot away from him. He says for years Sami Zayn had to claw his way to success. He had to hide his ugly face under a mask as he was so ashamed of how he looked as he shows the crowd a picture of Sami Zayn as El Generico including him teaming with Kevin Owens in the past. He mentions he had a small amount of success as he shows stills of him picking up titles in PWG and ROH before he came to WWE.

    Finn though smirks saying whilst Zayn struggled in America I spent my time all over the world proving my greatness. I went to Japan and was best of the Super Juniours twice! I won the Junior heavyweight title 3 times and even beat the top guys like Okada, Tanahashi and making the infamous Bullet Club. I founded one of the biggest stables of all time but I knew I had to come here to conquer the WWE like I conquered the rest of the world. However lets get back to the failure of a career Sami had.

    Sami would appear on NXT and would immediately to struggle to beat Cesaro. Now don't get me wrong Cesaro is great but he is not on my level no one is. He would then end up against NXT champion of the time Bo Dallas and do what Zayn always does when it came to the biggest matches he would lose. Sure he beat Bo to earn the shot but when the pressure was on he failed once again.

    Sami then time and time again kept losing match after match proving himself to be unable to handle life at the top before he went on what he called a road to redemption. He finally overcame all his hurdles and won the NXT title but at his moment of glory he suffered failure again when his friend destroyed him and once again he lost the title as he failed against KO. Meanwhile I came into NXT and beat his former friend and took care of anyone in my way being the longest reigning NXT champion in history!

    Sami shortly after left NXT as he knew he could never beat me but never found any success losing time and again to Kevin Owens until finally he beat the white whale but once again he lost time and time again.You see a pattern Sami every time you get some success it is immediately followed by you losing once again. The rumble will be no different as I will take your title shot and go on to win the World title at Wrestlemania. Finn laughs in the ring when Sami Zayn's music hits to a pop from the crowd.

    Sami has a microphone in his hand as he says Finn wow maybe I should just give up now. He tells Finn that he knows the struggles he has gone through during his career in the WWE but he has come out the other side stronger and nothing is going to stop him from achieving his dream of main eventing Wrestlemania. I have come close time and time again to getting to the top to only just fall short after but not this time! I promise at Fastlane I will beat you once again and win the World title at Wrestlemania. Sami Zayn drops the microphone as Finn and him stare eachother down to end the show.

    SD Live Re: WWE: A different future



    January 31st

    Dean Ambrose makes his way out to the ring to start the show off as JBL and Booker T announce that tonight the main event will be Randy Orton vs Kane as Randy looks to get payback on the Wyatt family for costing him the match against Bray last week. Dean Ambrose has a microphone in hand as he makes his way down to the ring as he waits for the crowd to die down.

    He tells everyone that last week people were questioning why he stopped Corbin from attacking John Cena. He says normally he is more then happy for the golden boy to get destroyed by Corbin but at Roadblock he wants John Cena at 100%. He wants to beat him when Cena is at his best and take his title back from him so he does not get to rattle off his usual list of excuses.

    He tells the crowd he may hate Cena and think he is a phoney but he knows how good John Cena is and there is saying that he finds very fitting. Steel sharpens steel. That is why he joined the SHIELD. The 3 best young guns coming in and fighting together. He tells the crowd he intends to take his WWE title back and if Corbin keeps getting in his business he will make sure he takes care of him for good. Ambrose mentions he knows that Cena is off somewhere filming a movie as he has become the part-timer that he used to hate but he knows he is watching. He says next week they have a contract signing for the WWE title match so he knows Cena will be here and he looks forward to staring the man he will beat for the WWE title in the face.

    However before Ambrose can leave the ring John Cena appears on the titantron to a mixed reaction from the crowd. John tells us he stole this from a rival but he is here live via satellite. He tells Ambrose that he will be there next week and looks forward to seeing Ambrose put up or shut up. He thanks him for the assist last week but he says he can handle someone like Corbin promising that once he beats Ambrose at Roadblock he will learn that the CHAMP IS HERE! Cena raises his WWE title in the air as the segment comes to a close as we go to an ad break before the first match of the night.

    Match 1: World tag team titles match: American Alpha (c) vs TJP and Kendrick

    American Alpha start this match off flying out of the gate knowing that if they win not only do they retain their tag titles but get singles title opportunities as well. Kendrick and TJP try to use as many cheap tricks as they can with Kendrick using his past experience as a tag team champion for a year to give him and TJP a chance but in the end it is no use as American Alpha connect with Tech Fall onto TJP picking up the win here earning Jason Jordan a shot in the Elimination chamber WWE title number one contender match and Chad Gable a future Cruiserweight title shot.

    Winners and still World tag team champions: American Alpha (9:34)

    Baron Corbin is seen backstage making his way to the ring when he is stopped by Renee Young. Renee asks him what he thinks about what John Cena and Dean Ambrose had to say. Corbin says he heard what they said but he will deal with them on his terms as he prefer to let his actions do the talking and tonight I will beat Sabre Jr so bad he will wish he was back in ROH. Renee then goes to say that Sabre was never in ROH to which Corbin says he does not care. All he cares about is winning this match, winning the Chamber match and getting the WWE title shot that belongs to him before walking off towards the ring.

    Match 2: Elimination chamber qualifier: Baron Corbin vs Zack Sabre Jr

    Zack Sabre here does his best to defeat the larger man but struggles to put him away with any of his submissions throughout the match however towards the end he gets him locked in an Octopus hold when the Miz makes his way out to the ring distracting the ref. Sabre distracted by this lets go of the hold before hitting Miz with a suicide dive through the ropes to take care of him. However as he gets back into the ring he is met with kick to the gut as Corbin hits the End of days and earns the win.

    Winner via pinfall: Baron Corbin (9:25)

    After the match is finished Corbin heads up the ramp whilst The Miz slides into the ring. He stands behind Zack Sabre Jr as he waits for him to rise to his feet as he holds the IC title in his hand before connecting with a belt shot to the skull. He stands tall over Zack Sabre Jr bending down before holding the IC title in his face telling him you will never ever get your hands on my IC title do you understand as he heads towards the back sending a message to his challenger ahead of next week.

    AJ Styles is shown backstage as he lets us know that for years he went around the world showing off his skill and proving he was the best in the World. He says he has come to the WWE and beaten the best of the best some of them twice such as the current WWE champion. He tells us at Roadblock he will win the Elimination chamber and go on to prove himself as the Champ who runs the camp!

    Kevin Owens makes his way out to the ring next to heat from the crowd as he slides into the ring. He tells the crowd that he says in a 4 weeks he gets a chance to prove to the world that he is the top guy on not just Smackdown Live but the whole WWE when he takes the WWE title. He tells the crowd it does not matter who wins out of Ambrose or John Cena he has beaten both men before promising what he did to Orton will seem like child's play compared to what he will do to get the WWE title.

    Before he can carry on for much longer Sheamus makes his way out to the ring to a pop from the crowd. Sheamus makes his way into the ring before laughing at Owens. Owens asks him what is funny with Sheamus replying you thinking it will be that easy. He reminds Owens that he is only person in the Elimination Chamber who has been a WWE or World champion. Owens tells Sheamus that was the past and he will destroy Sheamus.

    Sheamus welcomes him to try as KO goes after Sheamus attacking him as both men start to brawl in the ring. Owens starts off in control as he gets Sheamus into the corner after a bunch of punches as he looks like he is getting ready for the cannonball in the corner. He charges at Sheamus who rises up and kicks Owens in the head with a Brouge kick as Sheamus stands tall in the ring to end the segment.

    Match 3: Tommasa Cimapa vs Johnny Gargano

    The two former teammates face off here as Gargano looks to gain a measure of payback on his former partner here whilst Cimapa looks to prove he is the better man. Both men give it their all as Cimapa controls the match going after Gargano in viscous fashion. It gets towards the finish as it looks like Cimapa is about to finish Gargano off when Gargano counters Cimapa and hits the Hurts Donut for the 3 count picking up a massive win!

    Winner via pinfall: Johnny Gargano (10:09)

    Johnny Gargano celebrates after the match when Tommasa Cimapa start to rise with a face of pure fury at having lost here. He waits for Gargano to get back to his knees whilst celebrating the win before hitting him with a brutal knee strike to the head. He then looks like he is going to carry on attacking Gargano when the ref pulls him off and tells him to head to the back. Cimapa looks like he is going to attack the ref but does what is said. Cimapa can be seen shouting it was a fluke Johnny a fluke as we cut to an ad break.

    We cut to the back as we can see Rhyno working out in the gym whilst RVD relaxes backstage as we see it from the perspective of a camera phone. We get Tyler Breeze and Fandango doing their best David Attenborough impression as he comments on the old and overweight Rhyno is outside his natural habitat. As they are doing this RVD seems to notice something and points to Rhyno as Breezedango unaware of this carries on their fake wildlife documentary. They keep mocking the pair saying that in the wild usually animal this old is removed from the herd. They then comment the pair have left the room as Fandango says they need go to the next room to fin... GORE!!! RHYNO made his way round and spears the socks off Fandango!!! Breeze is frozen in fear so does not try to run away when RVD connects with a kick to the head sending him backwards as Rhyno GORES HIM NEXT AS WELL! Rhyno and RVD then walk off leaving the pair laid out on the floor after those brutal gores.

    We then cut to Daniel Bryan's office where we can see Randy Orton walk into the room. He looks a bit annoyed as Daniel Bryan questions what brings him here. Orton says he thanks Bryan for letting him get a hand on one member of the Wyatt Family but he wants another at Roadblock. Bryan tells him since Bray did win their match he will not be able to face him. Orton says he knows so he wants the second in command. He asks for Luke Harper at Roadblock. Daniel Bryan says he will let the Wyatts know and make the match for Roadblock. Orton thanks Bryan promising to show Bray the darkness still is very much in his soul as Bryan looks a bit unsettled by his words.

    Match 4: Cruiserweight title number one contender match: Neville vs Jack Gallagher w/The Vaudevillians

    Both men circle the ring as Gallagher offers Neville a handshake to start this off with Neville giving him an ice cold stare as Gallagher takes it back. Both men lock up and the match starts off well with Gallagher trying to use his ground game to take down Neville but it does not get any further then the first few moments as the Usos make their way out with Kidd taking down the Vaudevillians at ringside. They then slide in the ring attacking both Neville and Gallagher causing a no contest.

    Winner: No Contest (4:10)

    They surround both men as Kidd starts connecting with kicks to the downed Neville whilst the Usos hit a splash to each of the contenders in this cruiserweight match. However they rise the Vaudevillians make their way back into the ring to try to take down the Usos with Aiden able to hit the Director's cut on Jimmy. However before Simon can do anything to Jey he gets hit in the head by Kidd with the Cruiserweight title! Aiden tries to fight the pair off but Kidd hits him with Code Blue as Kidd and The Usos head up the ramp happy at the damage they have caused here!

    We come back from an ad break as we can see Tyson Kidd and The Usos gloating as they head through the back when they bump into Shane McMahon who does not look happy. Tyson Kidd says hey Shane do you like what I did? I did you favour so you can find me a real challenger. Shane says he warned Kidd their would be consequences so at Roadblock... Kidd butts saying he knows where this is going he will have to face both men in a triple threat FACT! Kidd says he does not care as neither are worth his time. Shane however smiles saying I guess you don't know all the facts. Shane tells Kidd that he is moving the number one contender's match to Roadblock and if anyone interferes they will be fired whilst Tyson Kidd instead of defending that against 1 person you will be facing 5 in the Elimination chamber. Tyson Kidd's face drops as the Usos try to argue but Shane replies he tried to warn Kidd there is consequences for his actions FACT.

    Match 5: Rich Swann vs Luke Harper w/The Wyatt Family

    A short and quick squash match with Luke Harper putting away Rich Swann with relative ease here.

    Winner via pinfall: Luke Harper (2:10)

    After the match Bray steps into the ring with the rest of the Wyatt Family as he gets ready to cut a promo. He has a smile on his face before telling Orton that even if he was at his best that is what you are in for when you face Luke Harper. He tells Orton that they are the family that even the Dead hide from. He warns Orton tha the has gotten soft and to run as soon Bray will step in the steel prison and take his spot at Wrestlemania taking the holy grail and showing you fools who to follow. He starts to cackle in the ring before he passes the microphone to Kane.

    Kane tells the crowd that his brother has not appeared since he declared the challenge and is stay away playing mind games. He says he knows his brother is no longer the face of fear and that is why he is trying to hide away but you need to join us or I will show you why I am the true brother of Destruction. At this point Randy Orton makes his way down to the ring as we get ready to start the main event off.

    Main Event: Randy Orton vs Kane w/The Wyatt Family

    This is no technical masterpiece as both men start brawling right from the start as Randy Orton lets out a lot of his recent frustrations by pounding on Kane. However with the Wyatt Family at ringside it makes it hard for Orton to stay on top with the constant threat on the outside however for the most part they stay out of the match. As the match comes to a close it looks like Kane may pick up the win when SUDDENLY THE LIGHTS GO OUT. When they come back on Orton has gotten out of the chokeslam and hits Kane with a RKO before making the cover. 1 2 3 Randy Orton wins but the Wyatts jump into the ring surrounding the Viper!

    February 2nd

    Tony Nese vs Akira Tozawa w/Apollo Crews

    Tony Nese here takes on one half of the Blood Brothers in a good encounter. The finish comes with Tony Nese picking up the win as Drew Gulak makes his way down to ringside making his return attacking Apollo Crews as he is cheering his teammate on at ringside distracting Tozawa and this allows Nese to take advantage hitting the pumphandle slam for the win.

    Winner via pinfall: Tony Nese (10:05)

    Cedric Alexander vs Primo w/Epico

    Cedric Alexander here takes on one half of the Shining stars as he looks to show off his skills. He is able to put Primo away with the Lumbar check for the 3 count and picks up a nice win. After the match Epico tries to sneak up on him but Cedric sees him coming so Epico thinks better of it.

    Winner via pinfall: Cedric Alexander (8:17)

    Zack Ryder vs Bo Dallas

    Zack Ryder takes on Bo Dallas here in a short encounter with Bo Dallas picking up the win after he rolls up Zack Ryder hooking the tights to steal the victory. In typical Bo Dallas fashion after the match he runs round the ring like he has won the Superbowl.

    Winner via pinfall: Bo Dallas (6:59)

    Elimination chamber qualifier: Noam Dar vs Ariya Davari

    Noam Dar here takes on Ariya Davari as both men looking to earn themselves a chance at the Cruiserweight title in a hard hitting encounter. In the end Noam Dar's work on the leg earns him the 3 count here as he locks in the champagne super kneebar for the submission win joining Chad Gable and Tyson Kidd in the elimination chamber.
