    WWE

    So this is more of a general review as I've been following this diary quite casually and as with any booker, there's elements I enjoy and others....not so much. I haven't reviewed in like forever and a say, so I may be a bit rusty and I apologise if I misinterprete anything.

    I'll give an overview of the things I've enjoyed from the past couple of shows...


    YOUR MAIN EVENT PICTURE/BUILDING TALENT: Giving us matches like Samoa Joe vs. Shinsuke Nakamura gives me hope, the current real-life product knows that these guys are popular but yet there's something that stops them from mirroring their success from their days spent in NXT. I really like that you dedicated time to the match as well, though part of me would prefer the longer-timed matches to have more of a description. I've always found it hard to try and write for the sake of writing, so I don't blame you for giving overviews to each match but sometimes to have a 15 minute match summarised in two lines is a little underwhelming. Harking back to my main point though, I enjoy that you're pushing (in my opinion) the right people. Samoa Joe is a great champion, Sami Zayn is an even better challenger and we need that NXT feel on the Raw main event, we can't have Brock Lesnar matches forever and it' doesn't feel force-fed like Roman Reigns or Braun Strowman. On a lesser note, it's nice to see even Big E. being built in the U.S. title picture, he was Mr 5 count back in the day and while that may not have worked as well as the New Day did for him, I don't think the stable need to just do things as a trio all the time.

    YOUR TAG TEAM PICTURE: While it's underwhelming that the tag team titles will be defend on the pre-show (something WWE love to do in reality) I really like the fact that you've got The Club as champions - they're criminally underdused in real life. I really enjoy that you've brought Cody and Sandow back together, I enjoyed the Rhodes Scholars pairing and I still think both men have potential to be break-out single stars on the show. The New Day are one of your biggest team, so it makes sense for them to be part of the event, although I felt that the triple tag stipulation for Mania was a given with the stipulation you placed. You've given some spotlight to Hype Bros. and The Real Americans too, which hopefully can be capitalised. While Shining Stars and The Ascension had lost, I would like to feel that they could still be developed down the line and not just jobbed out due to their current position on television. I also really enjoy the idea of The Mercenaries.

    THE BFF's 2.0: I really enjoy the stable of Carmella, Summer Rae and Tamina, I'm a massive women's wrestling advocate and while I support the revolution and all, I feel that it relies heavily on NXT these days as opposed to building it's existing female roster. Summer and Tamina have spent their careers at the bottom of the pecking order, so it's really fun to see them part of something that's been built as a force here. It reminds me of The Welcoming Commitee that they tried to do on SD (probably because Carmella and Tamina were a part of that too) but this tandem actually feud. Of course a budding heel stable would be nothing without strong faces and Becky Lynch has always been a reliable worker, she can lose yet still remain popular and seen as a main attraction. Mickie James always bring in some legitimacy as a future Hall of Famer and I always felt that Paige worked better as a face than a heel, although I'm interested to see if you still use her given her real life situation.

    ART NOT IMMITATING LIFE: I'm not a massive Baron Corbin fan, but I like that you've kept investing on him rather than drop him. You should be building new stars, both those already on the roster and from NXT. I also feel as an opponent, Dean Ambrose can really bring out the best of him.

    BURIED ALIVE MATCH/BRAY WYATT: Would Undertaker ever do a Final Deletion style bout? Probably not, but this is a nice way of the two characters' mythology being exposed without it being quirky, campy and kitsch. While that may work for Matt Hardy, I think this match can still bring the chilling vibes if built right. I really like that you're trying to bring Bray back to his cult days rather than just the lone wolf. I just hope you treat this feud better than they did in real life.

    KEEPING JOHN CENA ON ONE BRAND: It defeats the point of the draft to have him as a free agent. I hate free agents.

    And onto some of the things I didn't enjoy as much.

    ADDICTION TALK: I found it really odd that Shelton Benjamin's addiction issues were addressed on television as part of a program between Kurt Angle and Rusev. I really like that you've brought Rusev back to his days of dominance and paired him back with Lana, who gives him that King Kong effect. However if this was real life I feel like the addiction thing would be blurring the line a bit too much, I just get Randy Orton/Rey Mysterio vibes and that Eddie Guerrero reference.

    INJURIES/INACTIVITY: So Shelton's in rehab and in the meantime between Roadblock to the Road to Mania, we've had Seth Rollins, Xavier Woods, R-Truth, Cedric Alexander, T.J.P. and Noam Dar taken out. Are you using EWR? It just seems like there's a lot of sporadic injuries. Injuries to write a character off for rebranding or to push a feud are fine and well but it's just done for the sake of getting rid of someone you're not using it just seems a bit uncreative.

    SASHA/BAYLEY SEGMENT: It went from a segment with Fox/Banks to a match to a segment with Banks/Bayley to a match with Bayley/Eva Marie to another segment without any type of break. It just felt a bit long-winded, I don't think it needed to happen in that Domino Effect order.

    AMAZONIAN WARFARE: Like I said, I always pay attention to the women's division and it's nice to see you're doing something different but to have a gimmick match on a pre-show just feels like a bit meh, especially with this Lucha Underground name. The women have never been referred to as Amazon's, it just feels a bit like it wants to have that hype and theatric but it's given away for free on the Youtube stream?

    MANIA GIMMICK MATCHES: There just seems so many crammed in, like we're not in the Attitude era and while that may be the effect you want, it just feels that having so many gimmick matches on one card cheapens the matches themselves. How am I supposed to care or stay excited when I've sat and watched a Street Fight, Falls count Anywhere, Steel Cage match, the aforementioned Amazonian Warfare and Buried Alive matches? In your defense there's also three singles matches but I don't know if that's enough to split up the extreme matches we've got going on.

    Overall you're developing a lot of good stuff, there's some gripes that I have but that's more in terms of logistics. I'm looking forward to seeing where you go from here. Good luck with your Mania, they can be a chore to write but they're worth it when you get through it.

    Thanks for the review . Yeah I use EWR to add injuries to make it a bit more life like with the Seth and Xaiver Woods ones being the most annoying as they messed with Mania plans. Also why I had a ton of people out for drug suspensions. The women's match I was trying to come up with a name and picked Amazons after watch wonder women but yeah I stole the match from LU cause I did not want two battle royals on the show. Also had the annoying problems of too many matches for Mania hence why I put the WWE tag titles on it and the Women's match otherwise my card gets to 16 matches. Agreed I think I went a bit overkill on the stipulation matches and something I need to work on in the future . One of things I am trying to do as well is build new stars or even people who can play a role in the mid card. I want to try to have stories up and down the card.

    WWE Re: WWE: A Different Future

    WWE News:

    Falls count anywhere match plans:

    Current plans for Wrestlemania involve part of the arena being adjusted and gimmicked slightly for the Dean Ambrose and Baron Crobin match as the plans for the match is to make it spill out of the arena after the bar brawl they had a few weeks ago on Smackdown and also to make it different from the other hardcore matches on the card. Currently backstage the writers are undecided on who wins as both men are seen as key parts of the brands future.

    Kevin Owens's future

    Another man that is seen as a future top star is Kevin Owens. Whilst he has been out of the main event scene for the last few months and is on the pre-show WWE still have plans for Kevin Owens long term as originally the IC title was going to be a multi man ladder match but WWE decided against it. Expect the fact he is appearing on the pre-show to play into the future storyline.

    Main Event of the show

    WWE are also undecided on which World title match will be the main event of the show. It is spilt down the middle backstage which match will go on last with some wanting the Rumble winner to main event the show whilst others are pushing for the John Cena vs AJ Styles match to go on last to make sure people see Smackdown Live as equal to Monday Night Raw. It may even come down to the day of the show which match goes on last but expect both matches to get a lot of time.

    NXT call ups

    Current plans within WWE is for the next draft special to take place after Money in the bank. There are rumours of a few superstars from NXT making their debut on the Raw and Smackdown after Mania as well as member of the NXT women's roster debuting in the Amazonian warefare match. With a number of names going away after Mania or retiring for good expect a few call ups as WWE look to build new stars for this era.

    Re: WWE: A Different Future

    There's no harm in using EWR at all, I think there just needs to be some variation. So Xavier Woods has been sidelined for 6 weeks works well for that breaking news vibe, then a follow-up letting us know when/how it happened etc. Just to break up the plague of injuries you have going - especially your big players. I like the fact you're staying true to the game though and you're not just giving the picturesque injury free outlook. I also understand regarding PPV and gimmick matches, especially at Mania, you just want it to be a big event and feel like it so big gimmick matches contribute to that but yeah I would definitely say less is more in that extent. That for me is where MITB, Elimination Chamber, Hell in the Cell lost the magic as they were turned into PPV's.Also I know NXT is just results only but it's pretty big deal to have Gran Metalik go over Bobby Roode, especially for the title! He's not my first choice for champion but it's a big departure fro mreal life and I really like that aspect. Good luck with Mania, I hope you have a lot of fun writing it.

    Predictions:
    -
    Braun Strowman
    - Zack Sabre, Jr.
    - Finn Bálor
    - American Alpha
    - Bayley
    - Shinsuke Nakamura
    - Dean Ambrose
    - Rusev
    - Bray Wyatt
    - Brock Lesnar (Although I do want Cesaro to win)
    - A.J. Styles
    - Samoa Joe

    - The Wyatt Family
    - The Club
    - Charlotte Flair
    - The Andre Memorial could be anyone, there's like 40 entrants! I'll go with Owens as I feel that could provide more longevity.

    Wrestlemania 33 Re: WWE: A Different Future

    Wrestlemania 33:



    Pre-show:

    Wrestlemania starts off with the typical pre-show stuff as Renee Young sits on the pre-show panel with the usual suspects on there as they discuss the PPV and who they expect to win this weekend. This goes on for a bit before we cut to a backstage medical room to see Big Show. We can see he is in a bad way as the doctors check on him as it is clear Big Show is not at 100% ahead of his battle with Braun Strowman going into what is his last Wrestlemania.

    After seeing that image of Big Show being checked over we cut back to the Pre-show panel who worry about the state that Big Show is going to be in ahead of facing a monster like Braun and if he will stand a chance. After that we cut to a backstage area as we can see Zack Sabre Jr sat down holding his IC title as he looks up towards the camera about to speak.

    Sabre has an angry look on his face before telling the camera I did something very dumb last week which is not like me. He tells us he likes to use his brains as he knows most of the people he faces have a strength advantage over him. However he has to give Randy credit as you made me lose my temper when you punted my friend in the skull. Maybe you have been listening too much to Bray and he has gotten in your head?

    You see Randy for many many years you have been anything but too soft and I knew that going into our match but you think I am going to let you take my friend out? How are your fingers by the way Randy? He says he spoke to Dar and made a promise to calm down so as to make sure I beat you because the best revenge will be breaking your arm. Sabre pops the collar as we cut back to the pre-show panel.

    The pre-show panel carry on talking about the IC title match and mention that the punt kick has lead to Noam Dar needing an operation on his eye as they wish him a speedy recovery. They carry on talking about the rest of the matches on the card before we cut once again to someone else backstage in a very bad mood as we can see Corbin pacing back and forth.

    Baron Corbin is raging as he tells us that he cannot wait until that bell rings and he will not be responsible to what he does to Ambrose for trashing his stuff but also stealing his bike. Corbin pushes over the camera guy storming off. We cut back to the pre-show panel as they ask Renee what she thinks. Renee replies stealing is wrong but the bike is quite a nice one and she did have fun going for a ride on it with Dean. We cut to the ring as all the entrants bar one have made their way out for the Andre the Giant battle royal.

    All the men stand in the ring as they await the start of the match as Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring to boos from the crowd with some cheers as well due to the smarky nature of the crowd. He gets in the ring as we get ready for this match to start when suddenly one more theme song plays:



    DREW MCINTYRE STEPS OUT ONTO THE STAGE TO A POP FROM THE CROWD! The chosen one has returned to the WWE which gets a massive pop as he makes his way slowly down to the ring soaking in the cheers from the crowd. He climbs into the ring and the match begins!

    Pre-show: Andre the giant battle royal match

    Entrants: Akira Tozawa, Apollo Crews, Ariya Davari, Big Cass, Bo Dallas, Brian Kendrick, Cedric Alexander, Curt Hawkins, Darren Young, Drew Gulak, Drew McIntyre, Epico, Fandango, Goldust, Heath Slater, Hideo Itami, Hunico, Jack Swagger, Jinder Mahal, Johnny Gargano, Kalisto, Kevin Owens, Konnor, Lince Dorado, Mark Henry, Mojo Rawley, Mustafa Ali, Nick Aldis, No Way Jose, Primo, R-Truth, Rhyno, Rich Swann, RVD, Ryback, Sheamus, Tiitus O'Neil, Tommasa Cimapa, Tony Nese, Tye Dillinger, Tyler Breeze, Viktor, Wade Barrett and Zack Ryder

    Here are the early eliminations in the match as the field gets thinned down:

    Rich Swann by Kevin Owens
    Viktor and Konnor by RVD and Rhyno
    Bo Dallas by Mojo Rawley
    Apollo Crews by Kevin Owens
    Epico and Primo by Drew McIntyre
    Titus O'Neil and Darren Young by The Hype Bros
    Brian Kendrick by Mustafa Ali
    Ariya Davari by Lince Dorado
    Golden Truth by Hunico and Kalisto
    Big Cass by Drew McIntyre
    Tony Nese by Drew McIntyre
    Akira Tozawa by Drew Gulak
    Breezedango by RVD and Rhyno
    Ryback by Sheamus
    Lince Dorado by Drew Gulak
    Drew Gulak by Johnny Gargano
    Hunico by Rhyno
    Rhyno by Kalisto
    Kalisto by RVD

    At this point there are 20 people in the ring left as the battle carries on. The next lot of eliminations are as follows:


    • The Hype Bros members Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder are stood next to each other in the ring as the carnage is going on when Mojo comes up to the pair asking if they are hype. Both men agree as Mojo walks off when suddenly both men grab him and throw him out of the match! Mojo sits on the outside looking upset that his friends eliminated him but they shout it is every man for himself bro before they start to battle each other in the ring.
    • Meanwhile elsewhere in the ring Wade Barrett who is battling Cimapa and Aldis who is battling Mustafa Ali. However both men see each other and start to brawl in the centre of the ring throwing fists at each other here. They are battling near the ropes when Cimapa takes advantage and tips both men out of the match! However both men are too focused on each other as they end up carrying on brawling all the way to the back whilst Cimapa goes back towards the centre of the ring to battle with Ali.
    • Mark Henry meanwhile is battling Owens as Owens shows off his strength and throws Mark Henry out of the match! Meanwhile across the ring from him Johnny Gargano is battling Drew who takes him out with a massive lariat sending him over the top rope! After that both Drew and Owens turn to each other as they start to do battle in the centre of the ring.
    • Elsewhere in the ring Jinder is giving Heath Slater instructions as he tells him to work together to take out the Hype Bros. 2MB do battle as they are able to throw out Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins respectively! Heath does a little air guitar pose when Jinder tries to throw his partner out from behind but Heath counters it sending Jinder Mahal out of the ring!
    • Heath then turns his attention to elsewhere in the ring as he gets a decent pop from the crowd for throwing Jinder out of the ring. Jinder throws a temper tantrum on the outside as he kicks the steel steps before he shouts Heath will pay for that as he storms to the back. Jack Swagger is meanwhile battling with Tye Dillinger who is able to throw him out of the match! Tye does a nice 10 chant for the crowd when Cimapa low blows him from behind and throws Tye out of the match to boos from the crowd!
    • However as Cimapa stands there giving a wave to Tye, Heath Slater throws Cimapa over the top rope! Slater does a little air guitar pose in the ring but Cimapa has held on and climbs back into the ring looking almost psychopathic. He starts laying into Slater with punches before he starts stomping on Slater's head! Cimapa heads towards the corner as he gets ready to charge at Slater looking to connect with that running knee. However as he looks to charge Ali catches him with a superkick sending Cimapa out of the match!
    • Mustafa Ali ends up battling with Hideo Itami when Cimapa climbs back onto the apron distracting Ali as Hideo kicks him in the back of the head. Hideo with the help of Cimapa eliminates Mustafa Ali from the match. Cimapa then gives Mustafa Ali a knee to the skull for good measure as he leaves Ali laying on the outside.
    • Meanwhile elsewhere in the ring RVD is battling KO, Sheamus battles Drew, Slater is down as Hideo looks for the kill going after the downed Slater. Meanwhile No Way Jose and Cedric Alexander are doing battle by the rope. Cedric tries his best against the bigger man but No Way Jose is in control. However as he is going for drop the bass Cedric counters and hits him with the Lumbar check! Cedric then throws No Way Jose out of the match!
    • Sheamus goes for a Brouge kick on Drew McIntyre but Drew is able to dodge out of the way of the move leaving Sheamus's foot trapped on the ropes as Drew takes advantage throwing Sheamus out of the match! At this point he sees Hideo Itami kicking the hell out of his former friend Heath as he spins Hideo Itami around and connects with a Futureshock DDT. He picks up the prone Hideo before throwing him over the top rope!
    • At this point Drew picks up Heath Slater bringing him back to his feet before hugging his former partner and friend. They do their air guitars as they have a little fun in the ring when KO spoils it hitting both with superkicks. Owens then pop-up powerbombs Heath Slater before throwing him out of the ring as we are down to the final 4.


    All 4 men make their way to a separate corner as RVD, Cedric Alexander, Kevin Owens and Drew McIntyre remain in the match. All 4 men do battle but as Cedric climbs to the top rope RVD is able to use his veteran experience and he pushes Cedric down to the outside eliminating him. At this point KO sneaks up behind RVD and says go back to ECW throwing RVD out of the ring!

    Raw Re: WWE: A Different Future



    April 3rd:

    We get a highlight package to start the show. It shows off the main results on the Raw side of things with The New Day becoming Tag team champions, Finn Balor becoming US champion, Sasha becoming Women's champion and Sami Zayn becoming the new World champion. We then cut to the ring as we see HHH in a suit and tie as he makes his way to the ring.

    HHH has a surprisingly calm look on his face after Seth Rollins attacked him at the start of Wrestlemania. HHH welcomes the fans to Monday Night Raw as he gets boos from the crowd. He says what a show last night and talks about how every title changed hands last night.

    He says that tonight is the Raw after Wrestlemania as he promises the crowd there will be surprise debuts and returns to the company. As HHH says that we hear a SETH ROLLINS chant which stops HHH who starts to snarl. HHH says the fans want may want to get that out of their system because once he is done with Seth we will never seen him again!

    HHH says last night Seth Rollins gatecrashed Wrestlemania and attacked me during the show! Now I am not sure how he got into the arena without me knowing and he may think he was smart when he did that but he made the biggest mistake of his career when he failed me. He says Rollins thinks his knee has healed but I will break it in 5 places. Suddenly we hear a voice coming from the crowd holding a microphone as the crowd let out a loud pop as it is SETH FREAKIN ROLLINS!

    Seth tells HHH that is a nice speech Hunter. HHH demands that Seth makes his way down to the ring right now but Seth stays in the crowd smirking saying you cost me the chance to be at Wrestlemania so I made my own Wrestlemania moment. However that is not enough for me before telling HHH that he is not going to stop until he burns the authority down to the ground. HHH tells Rollins that he stands no chance of destroying them telling Seth he was only a champion because of the Authority. Seth fires back smirking saying no I became champion because I am SETH FREAKIN ROLLINS.

    At this point Seth Rollins jumps the barricade. He tells HHH you would regularly put me through hell and treat me poorly. You overworked me so badly whilst I was carrying the company on my back that my leg gave out under the weight of your pressure. So when I came out and did things by my goddamn self guess what happened? I won back my title and yes I only had it for a few moments but Ambrose just did what I would have done. Now I am going to do what he always said I should have done when you invited my to join the Authority.

    Seth Rollins slides into the ring and starts to attack HHH in the ring. HHH tries to fight back but Seth is in control of the brawl. This goes on until suddenly security make their way out dragging Seth off of HHH. HHH gets up and goes to attack Seth but Seth using his free leg gives HHH a low blow as security drags Seth Rollins off towards the back. HHH meanwhile stews in the ring looking furious that Seth Rollins got the upper hand on him once again.

    We come back from the ad break as we can see Seth Rollins being dragged through the backstage area as Mick Foley appears with a smile on his face before telling Rollins with fake concern in his voice for HHH,that he should not be here tonight. Rollins smirks before telling Foley he wants a piece of HHH at Backlash and asks Foley to make it happen. Foley smiles as he tells Rollins to have a nice day as he is taken away by security before we cut to the ring to see Golden Truth waiting as The Club walk out with the US champion on their shoulders.

    Match 1: Golden Truth vs The Club w/Finn Balor

    The Golden Truth do not do so much of their goofy antics in this encounter looking a lot more focused as they try to put away the Club. Finn is at ringside but does not get involved in the match instead mocking the crowd and showing off his newly won US title. In the end the Club are able to put away the Golden Truth with the Magic Killer for the win. However as the match finishes Finn Balor demands a microphone from the ringside area.

    Winners via pinfall: The Club (8:14)

    Finn says you are looking at your rock and rolla US champion! I let my demons out and when I do that I am damn near unstoppable! However last night due to a bitter bitter man my boys lost their titles without being pinned. Enjoy your moment New Day because next week they will take the titles back! However tonight I take on the wannabe rockstar Chris Jericho for this title. Soon we will have the tag team titles as well and it will be too sweet. They too sweet each other in the ring as we cut to the back to see Jinder Mahal and Heath Slater arguing with each other!

    We hear Jinder getting angry over the fact that Heath eliminated him from the match saying he has been losing since coming back due to teaming with a loser like Heath. Slater however fires back he is a one man band and sick of carrying Jinder. However before they come to blows Mick Foley comes up to the pair. He says originally they were going to have a tag team match but since it is clear they would rather fight each other then they can face off against each other next instead!

    Match 2: Heath Slater vs Jinder Mahal

    Both members of 2MB take each other on in a short match as the fans cheer for Heath throughout the match. As the match goes on Jinder uses his power to take control and looks like he is about to pick up the win when Heath counters the Khallas attempt turning into Smash hit as he picks up the shock win!

    Winner via pinfall: Heath Slater (5:33)

    Heath Slater stands in the ring as he starts doing air guitar in the ring super happy about his win here. However as the match comes to a close as suddenly two small men in shirts appear in the ring. The camera zooms in on them and it is the SINGH BROTHERS. They attack Heath double teaming him. Heath struggles against them as Jinder rises to his feet grabbing a hold of Heath hitting him with the Khallas slamming Heath down to the ground! The 3 men stand tall over the fallen Heath as the crowd boo the group as we cut to an ad break.

    We come back as we can see Mick Foley in his office filling some papers when HHH storms into the room. HHH asks where is he? Foley plays dumb asking where is who? I have been busy running the show like you said I should. HHH says you know damn well who I am on about. Foley says oh Seth Rollins. Security took him out of the building though he had a request to fight you at Backlash. HHH scowls and says if Seth Rollins wants me to end his career for good then fine. Mick Foley smiles and says I will get a contract made up for you two to sign next week. HHH storms off as Foley tells him to have a nice day as we cut to the ring for the next match of the night.

    Match 3: Ember Moon vs Natayla

    Ember Moon makes her way to sizeable cheers from the crowd who have seen her work in NXT. Natayla stands in the ring looking cocky daring Ember to get in the ring. This ends up being a good showing as Ember Moon gets to show off how good her skills are and in the end she is able to put away the veteran with the Eclipse!

    Winner via pinfall: Ember Moon (9:14)

    We cut to the ring as Kurt Angle music hits a to a massive pop from the crowd. He stands on the ramp as the crowd start chanting YOU SUCK in their affectionate way for Angle who smiles as he makes his way to the ring looking a bit sad after his loss last night. He gets in the ring as he soaks in the reaction from the crowd letting out a smile.

    Kurt Angle says he will never get sick of you fans. He tells the fans that he loves them but sometimes you realise that your body has limits even if he did win an Olympic gold medal with a broken freakin neck.The crowd boo that statement but Angle says he knows the crowd are upset but last night he pushed himself to the limit but could not topple Rusev. The crowd give a mixed reaction the name of Rusev as Kurt Angle smirks.

    He tells the crowd he may not like the attitude of Rusev but last night his battle with him earned his respect. He says that Rusev will be a top star in the WWE and maybe in his prime it would have been a different story. He tells the crowd he has had a lot of fun but thanks to the 3 I's I realise that I want to bow out before my body breaks down. The crowd chant please don't go. Angle tells the crowd that whilst this is goodbye for now he promises that one day he will be back in some form for the fans.

    Kurt Angle stands in the ring as the fans gives him a ton of cheers with Kurt Angle soaking in the reaction from the crowd with a smile on his face as the you suck chants begin again. He stands in the ring for a bit as he heads up the ramp smiling to the crowd as he shouts once again he will be back some day soon I promise.

    We cut to the backstage area as Wade Barrett and Nick Aldis have once again come to blows as the two men are brawling through the back knocking over tables and other items. At this point Mick Foley comes over with a bunch of security telling the pair to pack it in. Barrett tells Foley I am afraid I have some bad news as I am not going to stop until I knock his lights out permanently. Aldis dares Barrett to try as Foley says enough telling the pair that they can fight each other at Backlash and tells them to both go elsewhere. Both men stare each other down as we cut to the ring for the US title match.

    Match 4: US title match: Finn Balor (c) vs Chris Jericho

    Finn Balor makes his way to the ring with the Club carrying their leader on their shoulders. However after they get to the ring they head to the back leaving Balor to defend his US title by himself against Jericho. Both men put on a great encounter however in the end Finn is able to put away Jericho the Coup D'Grace for the clean win!

    Winner via pinfall and still US champion: Finn Balor (14:45)

    Finn Balor stands in the ring with a cocky smirk on his face as he mocks the crowd and Jericho when the titantron cuts to show the New Day stood together. They have their tag team titles in hand whilst Woods is stood with them with his arm still in a cast. They tell Finn that they have heard his boys challenge and they accept. Finn smirks however Big E says that title you are wearing around your waist I want it back and I promise I will be taking that title back. Finn smirks in the ring as the Big E promises that when he is done Finn won't be able to make it up after a 5 count. Xaiver at this point steps forward telling Finn that next week he will show his lackeys a taste of what they can do cause I don't need this any more as he takes the cast off showing his arm has healed!

    We cut to the back as the crowd give Rusev a mixed reaction as he is stood with Lana by his side. Rusev says last night I proved how great I am when I beat your American hero. Now some people thought I would cheap shot him when he offered me a handshake but no I respect Kurt.He gave me a good fight but now I aim to prove why the stars of the past are not as good as me. I already earned my Rusev day in Bulgaria now I want to earn my way to the World title. He gives his wife Lana a kiss as the pair walk off before we cut to a video package.

    We cut to a video package which shows the Hardy Boyz in action throughout the years with it flashing up that the Hardy Boyz will return at Backlash! The crowd let out a loud delete chant before we cut to the ring for the next match of the night. Cesaro makes his way down to the ring taped up in a lot of pain after the war he went through with Brock Lesnar last night.

    Match 5: Cesaro vs Ryback

    Cesaro struggles in this match as he sells the war he went through the night before which gives Ryback a chance here against the Swiss superman.However Ryback is no Brock Lesnar with Cesaro putting away Ryback with the Neutraliser for the 3 count. After the match Cesaro grabs a microphone from the ringside area.

    Winner via pinfall: Cesaro (9:14)

    Cesaro says he is still in a lot of pain but that is mostly his pride after losing last night. However I will move on as last night I proved I have what it takes to be World champion. Sami Zayn has always struggled to beat me and I may respect the hell out of him but I will go through him or whoever gets in my way as to become World champion. Cesaro throws down the microphone before he makes his way to the back. We then cut to backstage as it shows Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman walking backstage as they make their way towards the ring!

    Both men make their way out to the ring to a mixed reaction from the crowd as Brock does his usual dance on the ramp as Paul Heyman has a smug look on his face. Both men get into the ring as Paul Heyman soaks in the reaction before telling the crowd he tried to warn Cesaro. He tried to tell Cesaro what he was in for at Wrestlemania but he gave a good fight against my client. Heck he is a great even a world class fighter which is why he was able to survive his encounter against Brock Lesnar and one day he has the potential to be a future World champion mark my words but right now this is BROCK LESNAR'S RING! Heyman says that is not to take away from how well Cesaro did and against anyone else his performance last night would be enough to win but you cannot stop the doomsday of WWE, the Beast incarcerate Brock Lesnar!

    Heyman carries on saying there is no one now or in the past or in the future who will be as strong and as much of a destructive force as Brock Lesnar! He says last night Sami Zayn achieved his dream of becoming World champion but I promise that is about to become a nightmare as Brock is coming for... However before Paul Heyman can finish Braun Strowman's music hits to boos from the crowd as the monster among men walks out onto the ramp.

    Paul Heyman looks a little nervous as Brock does his usual cocky laugh in the ring. Braun tells Heyman last night he destroyed a giant and he is not finished yet! Heyman throws his hands up asking what he is on about as Strowman references Heyman's appearance during his match with Cesaro at Fastlane! He tells Heyman no one gets involved in my business and does not get these hands! Braun drops the microphone before stomping towards the ring as Heyman tells Braun there is no need for this but it is no use as Braun is in the ring and the brawl is on!!!

Corey and Michael Cole move the hell out of the way as Braun dismantles the table before he grabs Brock punching him multiple times before he lifts him up taking him towards the desk! He lifts him up before he hits the running powerslam through the table! Braun rises to his feet as he looks satisfied for now as Heyman and Brock both look completely out of it as we cut to an ad break.

    We come back from the break as medics load Brock Lesnar onto a stretcher whilst Paul Heyman is also helped to the back. Heyman is in shock at the destruction of Brock Lesnar here by the monster among men as mutters that he has seen nothing like this before! We then cut to the back stage area as HHH confronts Braun about his actions as Braun tells HHH he will destroy anyone who gets in his way before walking past HHH who seems a bit cautious to do anything about the monster among men.

    Becky Lynch is shown backstage selling her frustration at the loss last night saying she is getting sick of coming so close and always coming up short. She says she wonders if trying to do things the right way is worth it saying look what happened to Bayley before she walks off away from the camera.

    The Rhodes Scholars make their way out to the ring as they look to take on the Primetime Players here but both men do not seem to be on the same page at all as they head down to ringside. When it comes to the match they do not team well together and the Primetime players pickup the shock win due to the disjointed nature of the Rhodes Scholars teamwork!

    Winners via pinfall: The Primetime Players (6:13)

    The Primetime players head up the ramp as they trash talk the Rhodes Scholars in the ring before they head to the back. In the ring both Cody and Sandow rise to their feet looking angry as they start to have a shouting match in the ring blaming each other for their loss when Sandow asks for a microphone from ringside.

    He tells Cody that whilst Cody is his friend and he has enjoyed their time together he thinks that all good things must... However before he can finish we here a theme song of a tag team who have not appeared for a few months....



    The Revival make their way down to the ring as Rhodes Scholars look very confused by the Revival being out here as they make their way into the ring and attack Rhodes Scholars! Both men are weakened after their loss just now and The Revival lay them out in the centre of the ring! The Revival then pose over the fallen pair shouting we are back where we belong!

    We then cut to the backstage area as the crowd reign down heat as we can see a smirking Roman Reigns as he holds his fist showing off his brass knuckles. The same ones he used to beat Shinsuke Nakamura. He is approached by Charly Caruso asks if he has time for an interview. Reigns lets out a cocky smirk saying of course she wants his attention just like every girl in the world would.

    Charly ignores Reigns before carrying on asking how he feels after winning last night in such a cheap fashion. Reigns however smirks smugly telling Charly all that matters if he picked up the win and crushed these stupid fan's dreams. He tells them that no matter how much they boo him and hate him for being greatness personified but whenever I face one of their heroes I always come out on top! However before he can carry on he lets out an scream off pain as Shinsuke Nakamura appears from behind low blowing Reigns to a pop from the crowd! Shinsuke stands over Reigns saying if that is how you want to play it, game on. Shinsuke walks away as Reigns lays on the floor in a lot of pain as we cut to the ring for the next match on the show.

    Match 7: Cedric Alexander vs Mojo Rawley w/Hype Bros

    Cedric here takes on Mojo Rawley in a decent length match. As the match goes on Mojo seems to be getting more and more frustrated and in the end Cedric is able to put away Mojo Rawley with the lumbar check!

    Winner via pinfall: Cedric Alexander (7:15)

    Cedric makes his way to the back after the match as the ref raises his hand into the air as Cedric has a big smile on his face after keeping up his recent form. Mojo meanwhile in the ring does not seem as hyped up as he normally is even after he loses a match as he is joined by the rest of the Hype bros who try to console him in the ring as we cut to an ad break.

    We come back from the ad break as the NEW Women's champion Sasha Banks makes her way down to the ring with a cocky smirk on her face as the crowd boo the hell out of the Boss here. She does not seem to care as she is clearly feeling herself tonight. She gets on the microphone and mocks the crowd saying did you not get what you wanted?

    The crowd carry on booing even more as she says I told you what would happen. I told you that I am more ruthless then Bayley and that I would destroy her to get back what is mine! Last night I ended poor little Bayley's career and I promise she won't come back! The crowd boo Sasha but she says they should be cheering her as they have never seen greatness quite like herself.

    She tells the crowd last night she saw two women that were called legends and they do not measure up to me. I am the greatest superstar in this company's history male or female. At Backlash I have to face someone who was not even the best in her time period Mickie James. I have no clue why that old lady thinks she has a chance against me. When she faces me at Backlash I will end her little comeback tour because this title belongs to me!

    However before Sasha can carry on Mickie James makes her way out to cheers from the crowd happy to see the legend and also hoping she will shut the Boss up. She tells Sasha that is cute. She tells Banks that this whole god's gift thing is nothing new and tells Sasha that she is talking to a freakin legend. I have won the women's title 5 times and the Divas belt 1 time. I promise at Backlash I will show you why I am one of the greats of this division. Mickie then smirks saying heck maybe I am getting a bit crazy in my old age but why wait! She drops the microphone before she charges into the ring however Sasha Banks rolls under the ropes holding her Women's title saying we do this on the boss's time with a smirk on her face as Mickie dares her to get back in the ring. We then cut to the backstage to see Big Show sat down with a scowl on his face.

    Big Show looks at the camera as he talks about how last night he lost to a monster but he is not done yet. Show says he saw what Braun did to Brock Lesnar tonight and someone needs to stop him. Big Show says he challenges Braun to a rematch at Backlash promising to be at 100%this time and will stop the monster among men or die trying!

    We cut to the ring for the final segment of the match. The ring is setup before we see Mick Foley in the ring with a smile on his face. He tells the crowd that when the draft came out he had to fight tooth and nail to get Sami Zayn drafted even at number 15. However he knew how much skill, heart and fight that Sami Zayn has with last night proving that as he became the World champion. He then invites Sami Zayn out to the ring to celebrate!

    Sami Zayn takes a good 20 seconds to soak in the reaction from the crowd before he holds the big gold belt in the air to a massive pop from the crowd before he dances his way down to the ring. Once in the ring he grabs a microphone saying there is one thing he needs to do first as he places down the title on the table before he goes to hug Mick Foley as he quietly says off mic thank you Mick.

    Sami says he does not just need to thank Mick Foley for this but he needs to thank the fans for always being there for him. They chant at Sami“You deserve it” as he smiles promising the fans that he will face all opponents who come at him for this title and says whether that be Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe, Cesaro, Shinsuke Nakamura or whoever else in the back wants a shot at this belt I will fight them all. Sami then pauses to speak again when Samoa Joe's music hits to boos from the crowd as Sami gets ready for a fight.

    Samoa Joe has a scowl on his face as he does not look happy as Sami Zayn looks focused. Samoa Joe says what happened last night was a miracle. A once in a lifetime miracle that will not happen again. I was too focused on inflicting pain on you instead of getting the job done.You see Sami I have spoken to HHH and I am using my contractually rematch clause to face you at Backlash! Joe says however there is a little stipulation as he asked for the match to be an extreme rules match so he can crush Zayn for good. Sami Zayn does not flinch saying the outcome will be the same.

    Samoa Joe laughs however saying no it won't. You see you may have found winning that from me tough but keeping that belt is a hell of a lot harder. You had a one night miracle where you pulled off a one in a million performance but at Backlash I take back my World title. Sami dares Joe to join him in the ring and back his words up. However Samoa Joe says he wants Sami to remember this moment when he rips the title from his grasps. Samoa Joe throws the microphone down to the floor before storming off to the back staring down Sami Zayn who goes back to celebrating in the ring to a pop from the crowd as Monday Night Raw comes to an end.

    Matchcard for Backlash:

    World title extreme rules match: Sami Zayn (c) vs Samoa Joe

    HHH vs Seth Rollins

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

    The Hardy Boyz vs ???

    SD Live Re: WWE: A Different Future


    3 hour special

    April 4th:

    We start Smackdown with a highlight package of everything that took place at last night's Wrestlemania. Once the video package ends we cut to the ring when the music hits of the NEW WWE champion AJ Styles and the crowd let out a massive cheer. AJ Styles has a massive cocky smile on his face as he makes his way down to the ring soaking in the cheers from the crowd.

    He gets in the ring with the crowd chanting his name. He lets out a smile before telling everyone you are looking at the Champ who runs the camp! He tells the crowd that this is going to become the house that AJ Styles built. Last night he took the best of John Cena and beat him when it mattered the most once again to win the WWE title.

    AJ carries on saying that he has won the top title whether he went around the world and now he is the WWE champion here. He has beaten the best the company has to offer because he is phenomenal. The crowd cheer agreeing with that statement as he starts to smile once again. AJ tells the crowd that he is happy to fight anyone for this title.

    As he finishes that line his opponent from last night John Cena makes his way out to the ring. John Cena looks a bit down getting mostly boos from the crowd. John gets in the ring saying he holds his hands up saying that last night you were the better man and beat me when it mattered the most. He says however I have a rematch clause and I want to win back my WWE title breaking Ric Flair's record of most World title reigns. Cena mentions that he has a lot of other commitments at present to take care of but before he goes he wants to win back that title from AJ Styles with his rematch tonight.

    AJ Styles smirks saying beating you one more time would be fun and I do like a challenge. He shakes Cena hands accepting the challenge for the main event tonight! Both men soak in the reactions from the crowd as we cut to an ad break.

    We come back from the ad break as Bryan says he has made the WWE title main event match official as he is talking on the phone to someone. He says that Shane is in a bad way and is in hospital at the moment after the match with the Miz. He tells Brie that he will call her back as there is someone in his office. He hangs up the phone as the crowd give a mixed reaction to the viper Randy Orton.

    Randy Orton tells Bryan that I demand another match for the IC title telling Bryan that Sabre got lucky. Bryan however tells Orton that Sabre beat Orton fair and square making him tap in the middle of the ring so no. He reminds Orton that he has a match tonight already. Orton goes to argue but Bryan tells Orton after what he did to Noam Dar he is lucky that he even got the IC title match. Randy Orton tells Bryan whoever is facing me tonight will feel the brunt of your decision. Orton storms off not looking happy as we cut towards the ring as The Brian Kendrick making his way to the ring alone.

    Brian Kendrick has a super cocky smirk on his face. He says his partner the great Davari is busy getting ready to welcome Drew McIntyre back to the WWE but right now I am free. He says I want to prove how great I am and I dare any man in the back to come out to face me right now .Kendrick throws the microphone down to the mat as waits in the ring when:



    Bobby Rhoode soaks in the reaction as he takes his time making his way down to the ring. He is dressed in the full robe attire as this impromptu match begins.

    Match 1: Bobby Rhoode vs Brian Kendrick

    This ends up being a good match as Bobby Rhoode shows off his skills in the ring and Kendrick tries to keep up with the former NXT champion but in the end Bobby Rhoode puts Kendrick away with the Glorious DDT.

    Winner via pinfall: Bobby Rhoode (8:58)

    Bobby Rhoode after the match asks for a microphone from the ringside area.He smirks as the crowd cheer before he asked the crowd if that was glorious. He lets out a smug grin on his face before saying he made NXT glorious and now he is here to make Smackdown Live just as glorious. As the crowd cheer Bobby tells the fans that they are not glorious promising to teach them how to be glorious and promises to fix this show and bring in some fans who are actually glorious. The crowd boo Rhoode as he lets out a smirk after that segment.

    We cut to a backstage area where Daniel Bryan looks a little on edge when Rhyno and RVD walk in. Bryan asks what they are here for as RVD says Bryan can relax as he has one final request for his last Smackdown Live appearance. Bryan says he will consider it. Rhyno cuts to the point bringing up Breezedango costing them a chance at becoming number one contender's for the World tag team titles.

    Bryan says he does remember as RVD says he wants to go out fighting for the tag titles and potentially winning them. Bryan takes a moment to think about it before making the tag match for later in the show. Rhyno thanks him whilst RVD says he has a few ways Bryan can relax. Bryan thanks him before telling RVD that is not his thing. RVD though says I meant firing the Miz before walking off as Bryan has a look on his face that tells his feelings towards the Miz. We then cut to the ring for the next match of the night.

    Match 2: Randy Orton vs Johnny Gargano

    Randy Orton here looks furious here and he takes out a lot of that anger out on Johnny Gargano. Though Johnny Gargano starts to fight back showing the great amount of heart he has but Orton is able to just defeat a very game Johnny Gargano.

    Winner via pinfall: Randy Orton (12:12)

    However after the match is finished Orton yanks his hand away from the ref as he hits Gargano with another RKO sending him crashing down to the mat! Orton then heads to the corner of the ring as he waits for Gargano to rise to his knees before he takes his head off with a punt to the skull! Orton poses to heat from the crowd for his brutal actions as the refs call for medics to check on Gargano. Orton smugly shouts from the ramp that he will keep destroying people till he gets back to the top! In the ring medics load Gargano onto a stretcher as he is taken to the back!

    We cut to the backstage area as we see Bryan looking for Orton but he is already in his car and leaves the arena. Bryan then tells a stagehand that he is going to the ring as he has a couple of announcements for the crowd. Smackdown cuts to an ad break before Daniel Bryan makes his way to the ring.

    Daniel Bryan stands in the ring as the crowd give him a massive pop. Bryan for obvious reasons looks very unhappy as he gets into the ring. He tells the crowd he has been on the phone to local medical facilities and Shane is in a stable condition after his match with The Miz at Wrestlemania. He says he expects Shane to be back in a few weeks. He then says regarding the Viper Randy Orton however before Bryan can carry on The Miz's music hits to massive heat from the crowd as the A-lister looks super smug as he makes his way down to the ring.

    Miz makes his way into the ring as Bryan tells him this is not the time for you to be out here. Miz however tells Bryan that he is an A list star and will go whether he wants. I should be the one competing for the WWE title I should be headlining the show after what I did to Shane last night! Bryan says he should fire him for what he did! Miz says you won't as you know I will just go to Raw and get treated like the star I am.

    Bryan says you will never be a top star again with your attitude! The Miz fires back that you hold me back and look what happened after you main evented Wrestlemania! Your career fizzled out because your weak body could not handle it! The crowd start to boo the hell out of The Miz who turns to the crowd and raises him hand shouting when MY HAND GOES UP YOUR MOUTH GOES SHUT! Miz says I won in the main event of Wrestlemania and 6 years later I am still going strong taking the IC title to new heights and destroying corrupt authority figures way better then you ever could.

    Daniel Bryan at this point throws the microphone to the mat getting right in The Miz's face as the Miz lets out a laugh. He tells Bryan to do it. Hit me. You know you want to. Bryan clenches his fist before walking away up the ramp! Miz looks at Bryan as he walks up the ramp shouting see what a coward and a loser you are! Walk away Bryan because your body was always too weak for this and leave the in ring stuff to the stars like me. We cut to an ad break but when we come back we see an angry Daniel Bryan walking through the back when he bumps into Breezedango.

    Breezedango are playing with their selfie sticks as they walk through the back and ask Daniel Bryan to pose with them. Bryan advises the pair he is not in the mood for this. Breeze tells him it is not their fault he is an uggo. Fandango quips that if Shane was not in hospital he would be up for a selfie. Breeze laughs as Bryan asks the pair if they think Shane being in hospital is funny. Bryan says that later tonight the pair can see how funny that is when they face Kane, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan in a handicap match!

    The pair look on in horror asking Bryan to reconsider but Bryan says that they need to start taking things seriously because ever since they lost the World tag team titles their performances have been nowhere near the level I would expect from our original tag team champions and you spend more time posing for your cameras that improving your skills. He says tonight they have a chance to prove why they should be even considered for a tag team title shot. The pair sulk off as Bryan realises how harsh he was to the pair but shakes his head as he walks off.

    Zack Sabre Jr makes his way out with a smug smirk on his face as he has the IC title around his waist which he retained last night against the Viper Randy Orton. He poses for the crowd as he unstraps the IC title showing it off to the crowd after he was able to retain last night. He smiles before informing the crowd that last night he made a former WWE champion Randy Orton tap out on the grandest show of the mall.

    Sabre says that last night was not just about keeping this title around my waist but also sending a message to not mess with the people I care about innit. I took Randy's arm and twisted it in ways he has never experienced before. Last night I proved that I can take on anyone in the WWE and defeat them with my submissions. Last night showed that no matter your legacy or size or strength I can make you submit.There is no one in the WWE today that I could not stop in their tracks with my submission holds! However before he is able to carry on Lince Dorado's music hits to a small pop from the crowd.

    Lince has a microphone in his hand which is a rare sight as he makes his way down to the ring telling Sabre he gets why he did what he did last week. He says however you still cost me the match and my chance to beat a former World champion. Sabre holds his hands up say he understands why Lince is mad. Lince then says a match right now for his IC title will make up for it, Sabre smiles asking the crowd if they would be up for that match? The crowd cheer with Sabre asking for a ref to come out. We go to an ad break as we wait for the match to begin.

    Match 3: IC title match: Zack Sabre Jr (c) vs Lince Dorado

    The match starts off with Zack using his submissions to stay in control throughout the early stages of this encounter. However as the match goes on Lince is able to use his Lucha skills and pace to take control. Sabre as the match goes on realises what he has to do as he starts to to target the legs of Lince Dorado. As the match comes to a close Lince's leg gives out as he goes for a Golden Rewind allowing Sabre to take advantage locking in a kneebar for the submission victory here!

    Winner via submission: Zack Sabre Jr (15:31)

    After the match finishes Lince struggles to his feet but Sabre stretches out his hand which Lince agrees to showing a sign of respect between the two cruiserweights here as Sabre picks up another win and another title defence under his belt.

    We cut to the backstage area as we can see Jason Jordan with an ice pack on his leg as he looks to rest it a little bit still suffering slightly after their tag team titles defence against The Usos. Chad Gable asks Jordan if he is up for defending his tag titles considering how much pain is leg is in. Jordan smirks saying you know me I am always ready willing and Gable. Chad smirks saying it is shame they are the ones to retire RVD but Jordan says it is an honour to face a legend like that in their final match. Jordan goes back to resting his leg as we cut elsewhere backstage.

    We see Hunico in his locker room when he is joined by Kalisto. Hunico asks why Kalisto is here. Kalisto tells Hunico that he was right.They work better as a team plus after what Kendrick and Davari did to him he realised what he needs is an ally to take him back to the top. He says he will be at ringside for Hunico's match with Rich Swann tonight. Hunico smiles saying he is glad his former partner has seen sense and they can put their falling out behind them. We cut to the ring next as Breezedango take on the Wyatt Family in a handicap match.

    Match 4: Handicap match: Breezedango vs Wyatt Family (Kane, Harper and Rowan)

    The Wyatts are without their leader who is noticeable by his absence.Whilst this is a heel vs heel match Breezedango get destroyed here as the Wyatts start to batter the hell out of the former tag team champions. Neither Breeze or Fandango stand a chance against the monsters here. However as Fandango is in the ring getting destroyed by Erick Rowan we hear the music of the Gentleman society hit as they make their way to the ring to a pop from the crowd. This distracts the Wyatts long enough for Fandango to rolls up Erick Rowan hooking the tights to escape with the win!

    Winners via pinfall: Breezedango (3:38)

    As soon as Fandango and Breeze get the 3 count they run the hell out of the ring not wanting to face the possible wrath from the Wyatt Family. Whilst they flee however the Gentleman Society head into the ring not done with the Wyatts just yet! Jack Gallagher leads the charge as they go to town attacking the Wyatts. Simon Gotch goes after Luke Harper whilst Aiden English takes on Kane. Jack Gallagher is able to send Erick Rowan into the corner before he charges at him hitting the Gentleman dropkick to Rowan in the corner.

    Whilst that is going on Kane is able to take control in his battle with Aiden English as he chokeslams him down to the mat whilst Luke Harper hits a discuss clothesline as he sends Simon Gotch over the top rope!Jack Gallagher turns around to face off against Kane charging in at him but Kane is too much for him as he takes him down with a massive chokeslam to the mat! On the outside Luke Harper throws Gotch back first into the announce table! He starts to take the table apart before he lifts Simon Gotch above his head as he brings him crashing down through the announce table with a brutal looking powerbomb. Kane and Rowan join Harper on the outside as the Wyatts stand tall once again destroying the Gentleman society.

    Match 5: World tag team titles match: American Alpha (c) vs RVD and Rhyno

    Both teams share a hand shake before the match begins. As the match starts we cut to the back as The Usos can be seen watching the match looking furious after they came up short two nights ago against American Alpha. Chad Gable spends most of the time in the ring as Jordan sells the damage done to his leg. RVD looks to pull out all of the stops during this match and nearly gets the win with a Five star frog splash however Jordan breaks the cover making the save! In the end Jordan is able to put away RVD with the Olympic slam for the 3 count!

    Winners via pinfall and still World tag team champions: American Alpha (11:19)

    American Alpha after the match hold their titles in the air before making their way over to the ECW veterans offering a handshake to RVD and Rhyno. They then leave RVD in the ring to stay goodbye to the crowd. RVD thanks them before he stands in the ring and thanks the crowd. He turns to Rhyno half expecting him to gore him as Rhyno chuckles saying nah before both men show each other respect as Rhyno lets RVD stay in the ring to soak in the applause. We go to an ad break before we cut to the backstage area.

    We can see Simon Gotch being taken through the back by the medical team on a stretcher followed by English and Gallagher. Both men look concerned at they follow after him into the ambulance. Daniel Bryan comes to speak to them asking what they were thinking going after the Wyatts again like that! Gallagher however tells Bryan that as gentleman they are not going to let the Wyatts get away with their actions before they step into the ambulance. Bryan shakes his hand when he turns around to see Breezedango taking photos of the ambulance as they load the Gentleman society into the Ambulance.

    Both of them are laughing saying that could have been us as Bryan looks at the pair with disgust. He tells them they are cowards before saying that they need to grow up. He informs the pair that they can pass those words onto the Gotch's partners Aiden English and Jack Gallagher next week when they face them. Both men protest as Bryan walks off leaving the pair there looking worried about facing the partners of the man they just mocked next week.

    Match 6: Hunico w/Kalisto vs Rich Swann w/No Way Jose

    Hunico makes his way out with Kalisto as both men smirk. In the early going Kalisto and No Way Jose throw some trash talk to each other. In the ring Hunico shows off his skills taking control of the match here against Rich Swann. Rich Swann however looks like taking control when Kalisto trips him up from outside of the ring allowing Hunico to take control and picks up the win over Rich Swann here!

    Winner via pinfall: Hunico (6:07)

    After the match the pair sneak off to the back as they mock No Way Jose and Rich Swann from up the ramp promising that no one will be able to stop them. No Way Jose meanwhile tells his partner he will get the pair back. We cut to an ad break before the Cruiserweight champion Tyson Kidd makes his way to the ring.

    Tyson Kidd has the biggest smirk on his face as he makes his way down to the ring looking even more cocky then usual. He waits for the boos to die down before raising the microphone to his mouth as he lets out a chuckle. He tells the crowd they have a hard time accepting FACTS. He says I am still your Cruiserweight champion FACT. Neville proved he was too soft FACT. I out wrestled him to keep the title FACT.

    Kidd tells the crowd it is time I move onto someone else to beat as Neville is not worth my time. He has regressed since NXT whilst I have only risen and become even greater. However before Kidd can carry on with his gloating Neville's music hits a great pop from the crowd with a scowl on his face. He says he is going to keep this short and sweet. Last night you used every trick in the book to keep that title around your waist. Well now I am going to show you how soft I have gotten. Neville throws the microphone down and sprints to the ring. Kidd however wants none of the King of the Cruiserweights rolling under the ropes fleeing up the ramps with the Cruiserweight title on his waist. Neville dares him to get back here but Kidd keeps on running as Neville stands tall about in the ring as we cut to the back.

    When we come back from the ad break we see Tyson Kidd backstage holding his title out of breath when he bumps into Daniel Bryan. Bryan not in the mood for small talk tonight asks Tyson Kidd if he wants to know who he is facing for his title next? Kidd smirks before telling Bryan it does not matter as he has seen off the soft Neville, the current IC champion Zack Sabre Jr, Hunico, Kallisto, Mustafa Ali, one half of the tag team champions, Jack Gallagher, Akira Tozawa and Noam Dar. FACT. Whoever I have to face I will beat and keep this title as I always do. Bryan smirks telling Kidd he should have no problem facing off against the man he defeated at Wrestlemania Neville next week!Bryan walks off as Kidd's face drops as he looks worried about facing the King of the Cruiserweights one more time.

    We then cut to the ring as Ariya Davari is awaiting his opponent the returning Drew McIntyre! The sinister scotsman makes his way to the ring with a focused look on his face whilst Davari understandably a bit more worried about facing Drew here. The ref then rings the bell.

    Match 7: Drew McIntyre vs Ariya Davari

    Drew McIntyre takes control of this match as Ariya Davari struggles to even lay a blow on Drew who dominates the match completely. Drew hits Davari with the Claymore before he lifts the prone Davari up hitting the futureshock DDT for the 3 count. Drew stands tall before he signals for a microphone after the match.

    Winner via pinfall: Drew McIntyre (3:19)

    Drew stands in the ring for a moment before telling the crowd he is back in the WWE where he belongs. He tells us that whilst he had fun in 2MB before he left he realises that he was wasting his time and needed to leave to improve. I went back to the UK and made a name for myself once again showing why I was seen as the chosen one. As soon as I got the call letting me know I was coming back I knew I had to make an impact and I did by winning the Andre the Giant battle royal. He tells the crowd that winning that match is just the start for him as he promises that he is not here to rest on his laurels putting the roster on notice that he will not stop till he has gold around his waist. He says he aims to show everyone why he will be the future of this company and why he was the chosen one. No more picking on General managers no more excuses I am just going to rise to the top. Drew drops the microphone as the crowd cheer before we cut to Kevin Owens who has been watching the promo on a backstage monitor.

    Renee Young approaches Kevin Owens asking how he feels after coming second in the Andre the Giant battle royal. Kevin Owens asks her if she always asked stupid questions. He asks her where her shoes are as Renee looks annoyed before Owens says he was robbed by Drew McIntyre and if he knew that failure from the past was entering the match he would have prepared for him and won. Owens tells us that he promises to show Drew that this is the Kevin Owens show and his win at Wrestlemania was a fluke.

    We cut to Dean Ambrose in the backstage area as he has a smirk on his face. He starts to speak into the camera as he lets us know that last night he showed Corbin why he made a massive mistake messing with him and costing him the chance at his belt. Ambrose says now that he has defeated Corbin and put him away he is going back after the WWE title once again. However before he can carry on he gets a big boot to the face from Baron Corbin.

    Baron Corbin starts laying into Ambrose. Ambrose tries to fight back but Corbin stays in control as he throws Ambrose into the wall backstage as he looks for payback after his loss last night. Baron keeps on laying into Dean with multiple blows before he lifts Ambrose up off the ground before sending him crashing down to the concrete with an End of Days. Corbin stands over Ambrose promising he is far from finished with him and says whilst he is around Ambrose has no chance of even thinking about getting a WWE title shot before he does.

    Main Event: WWE title match: AJ Styles (c) vs John Cena

    Both men shake hands as a sign of respect for each other after what they put each other through in last night's match. Both men feel each other like they did in the early stages when suddenly the lights go out in the ring. The crowd are very confused as they come back on suddenly with the Wyatt Family surrounding the ring joined by their leader Bray. Both Cena and Styles turn around as they realise what is about to happen as the Wyatts charge into the ring attacking both men! The ref rings the bell for the no contest!

    Winner: No contest (5:00)

    Kane and Harper go after Cena whilst Rowan starts to beat down on Styles. Styles however is nearly able to fend off Rowan when Bray charges at him taking him down with a pounce before he makes his way to AJ's title. Harper hits Cena with the discuss clothesline taking Cena's head off. However Kane looks to inflict more pain to the 16 time world champion as he lifts him up into the air and connects with a tombstone piledriver.

    AJ Styles stumbles to his feet as Bray waits for him to rise to his feet before he connects with a shot to the head with AJ's own title! Bray then throws AJ to Rowan as AJ has been busted open by that belt shot to the head from the Eater of worlds. Rowan hits Styles the full nelson slam to the mat. As Bray instructs Harper to hit the discuss clothesline to Styles before Kane follows it up with a chokeslam!

    Bray looks to grab hold of AJ Styles as he looks to hit Sister Abigail when John Cena charges back into the ring wobbly but hits a running shoulder block knocking down Bray before he grabs Rowan hitting an AA to him. Kane comes charging but Cena hits him with a belly to back suplex! However before Cena can do anything else Harper hits a big boot on John Cena! Bray holds his chin before he grabs Cena hitting him with Sister Abigail. Bray then makes his way to AJ who looks like he is trying to rise before he punches him in the head a few times. Bray though drags the fallen AJ to his feet before he connects with Sister Abigail to the mat! AJ Styles and John Cena are laid out on the mat as Bray makes his way to the WWE title grabbing hold of the belt. He hold it in the air shouting he is coming for the Holy Grail as his followers crouch in front of him as the Wyatt Family stand tall in the ring having left destruction in their wake here as Smackdown fades to black.

    Main Event Re: WWE: A Different Future

    Johnny Gargano out for 7 months!

    Johnny Gargano picked up a knock at a house show over Wrestlemania weekend which will keep him out of the ring for up to 7 months. This comes as a big blow to plans post-Wrestlemania as WWE had big plans for the former DIY member. Rumour has it the angle with Orton was done on Smackdown to give him a return story-line when he comes back as well as carry on Randy Orton's anger issues and rampage on Smackdown.

    Booker T has left his commentary position:

    Booker T has been taken off Smackdown's live commentary table with Tom Phillips taking his place. Dasha Fuentes meanwhile will be taking Tom's spot as a backstage interviewer alongside Renee Young. No words on why Booker T was taken off commentary on Smackdown Live have come out just yet but WWE might move him to Monday Night Raw with Corey Graves and Michael Cole after Enzo got realised from the company in the lead up to Wrestlemania.



    April 6th:

    Hunico and Kalisto vs Kendrick and Davari

    Main Event starts off with the reformed pairing of Hunico and Kalisto taking on Kendrick and Davari as commentary mention that Kalisto is looking for payback after being ditched by the pair last week. A fun heel vs heel match but in the end Kalisto picks up the win hitting Kendrick with Salida Del Sol.

    Winners via pinfall: Hunico and Kalisto (10:59)


    Shining Stars vs The Real Americans

    The Real Americans and Shining Stars face off once again as Epico and Primo look to avenge their previous losses however they have little luck as Swagger is able to pick up the with an ankle lock.

    Winners via pinfall: The Real Americans (6:10)


    Summer Rae w/Carmella and Tamina vs Naomi

    The leader of the BFF's Summer Rae here looks to take on Naomi. Naomi puts on a decent showing however as the match goes on the numbers game starts to take effect allowing Summer Rae to pick up the win with the Summer Crush.

    Winner via pinfall: Carmella (8:52)

    Tommasa Cimapa vs Sheamus

    Both men beat the hell out of each other. Sheamus controls the match early on using his size and power to his advantage however as the match goes on Cimapa is able to survive the early wave and use his ruthless edge to get himself back into the encounter before connecting with Project Cimapa for the win.

    Winner via pinfall: Tommasa Cimapa (12:21)

    Raw Re: WWE: A Different Future


    Uniondale New York

    April 10th:

    We start Monday Night Raw off with Mick Foley making his way out to a big pop from the crowd. He looks noticeably happier then the last few weeks. He slides in the ring before saying it is good to be here in Uniondale New York. He says later on tonight we shall have the official contract signing for the match between his fellow Co-GM HHH and the returning Seth Rollins.

    He says that is not all as later on tonight in the main event for the show we shall see the New Day defend their tag team titles against the Club! Mick Foley then says that he has a match he has to announce for Backlash as well. He says that whilst Samoa Joe will be using his rematch clause against Sami Zayn they will need to see who will face the winner for the World title next. He tells us that there will be a triple threat at Backlash as Roman Reigns takes on Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro with the winner becoming the number one contender for the World title at Money in the Bank! The crowd cheer at the announcement of the big match for Backlash but it soon turns to heat as the commissioner for Monday Night Raw Stephanie McMahon makes her way to the ring with a vile scowl on her face.

    Mick Foley questions what Stephanie is doing out here but she tells Mick that she goes wherever she damn well pleases. She tells Mick that she saw his smirk and how he is acting towards her husband acting happy that the failure that Seth Rollins was has come back to attack HHH. She tells Foley that she will be more then happy to remove him from his role saying she put her husband as co-GM as she was sick of the failures. She tells Foley that he is a washed up joke and a shadow of the man he was in the past. She dares Foley to say something back but Foley does not as Stephanie smirks saying that he has learned his place like the other superstars on Monday Night Raw will soon do as well. She tells him there better not be hitch tonight and says to make sure the other superstars know their place below the authority. Foley stands in the ring looking broken as Stephanie walks up the ramp before we cut to an ad break. When we come back we have our first match of the night.

    Match 1: Rusev w/Lana vs Tye Dillinger

    Rusev here takes on the perfect ten as the crowd seems to be giving Rusev a more favourable reaction then they have in recent times. Tye is able to show off a decent amount of skill here even coming close on a couple of occasion however in the end Rusev is able to lock in the accolade on Tye for the win!

    Winner via submission: Rusev (10:13)

    After the match Rusev lets go of the hold as soon as the match is finished as Lana tells the crowd that from now on every day will be a happy Rusev day. Some of the crowd start chanting Rusev day as does Rusev as he walks up the ramp.

    Ember Moon is shown walking through the back when she is approached by Charly Caruso who asks how she is feeling now she is apart of the Monday Night Raw roster. Ember Moon says she is delighted to be on the Monday Night Raw roster and says she may have fallen short against Asuka but steel sharpens steel promising that she plans to rise to the top of the Women's division.

    Summer Rae however at this point approaches with her BFF cohorts by her side. She says the little girl who could not handle it in NXT now thinks she will make it here in the big leagues. How cute. Ember however does not flinch as Summer mocks her saying you will lose just like you did at Wrestlemania when I pinned you. Ember tells Summer that you caught me by surprise but she I will gladly fight any of you 3 next week. Carmella comes in saying she will gladly show her why she is fabulous promising to beat Ember so bad she goes back to NXT. Ember smiles saying you are on as we then cut to the ring as Jinder Mahal makes his way to the ring followed by the Bollywood Boyz as he has his usual look of disdain.

    Jinder gets in the ring as the crowd boo. He goes to speak but is met with massive boos from the crowd so he stops passing the microphone to one the two men by his side. Sunil Singh tells the crowd to shut their mouths and show respect to the Modern Day maharajah! The crowd just boo the hell out of him as Samir takes the microphone calling the crowd disrespectful and they should be bowing down to the pure greatness that is standing in front of them in the ring.

    Jinder Mahal takes the microphone back as the crowd carry on booing as he shakes his head in disgust at the crowd telling them that they are in front of an Indian hero and icon so they should show him some respect. Since I have come back to the WWE I have been associating with dead weight from my time in WWE before. However I shall no longer be making that mistake. He says that last week after Heath picked up the fluke win he showed Slater why a one man band faces a nightmare when he steps into my path. We are taking over this show and will bring titles back to our home country. He introduces Samir and Sunil Singh declaring that you may have known them from the Cruiserweight classic but now they work for me as they know greatness and an icon when they see it.

    However before Jinder can carry on his rant Heath Slater's music hits to a pop from the crowd happy to see just about anyone come out to shut Jinder up. Heath Slater tells Jinder that they were a 2 man band but having to cheer his grumpy band mate up was a mistake. You see I am a man with kids to feed and I was always better as a solo act. He then charges to the ring and takes down Sunil Singh with E-minor! Slater is then getting attacked by Samir but he connects with E-Minor to him as well. However before he can do any more damage Jinder approaches from behind grabbing hold of Slater before he connects with the Khallas leaving Slater in the middle of ring. Jinder lifts his goons up to their feet as he instructs them to get something from under the ring.

    The goons search under the ring as Jinder lays into Heath with a bunch of punches to the head working over the one man band. Sunil eventually finds a guitar underneath the ring as he brings it into the ring. Jinder says you want to be in a band before he takes the guitar from Sunil Singh before smashing it over the head of the prone Heath Slater. Jinder then poses with his goons by his side with a smirk on his face as he leaves the one man band laying in the middle of the ring as Raw goes to an ad break.

    Match 2: The Hype Bros w/Zack Ryder vs The ascension

    The ascension here take on the Hype Bros with Zack Ryder sitting out this week with Mojo Rawley and Curt Hawkins teaming up to take on The Ascension. However the Ascension put on a good showing here whilst the Hype Bros team work seems off as Hawkins and Mojo do not seem to be gelling well as a unit. However in the end the Hype Bros still pick up the win as Mojo connects with a Hyper Drive putting away Viktor.

    Winners via pinfall: The Hype Bros (6:22)

    After the match finishes Ryder joins the pair in the ring looking happy whilst Hawkins and Mojo side eye each other with tensions growing between the pair whilst Ryder gets the pair to celebrate after the hype bros group pick up the win. As we cut to the back we can see Shinsuke Nakamura in a room lit with red lighting as the King of strong style is sat on a steel chair.

    Shinsuke Nakamura says the World title. He starts speaking in Japanese with the translation appearing on the screen below. He says that at Wrestlemania Reigns needed cheap tricks to beat me but if that is the game he wants to play we can play. I was called the King of strong style not just for my strength but because I would rule over my opponents and inflict pain onto them if they crossed me. He tells Cesaro that he is just a victim caught in the middle as he promises to knee both men in the face and face his first foe in the WWE Sami Zayn or the man who went to war with him over the NXT title Samoa Joe. Shinsuke says he will be World champion before we cut to the ring as the music for the monster among men hits and he has a microphone which is a rare sight for the monster who usually lets his actions do all his talking.

    Braun gets in the ring as the crowd boo the monster among men before he goes to speak. He says at Fastlane Paul Heyman got involved in my business and my match by distracting Cesaro. No one gets involved in my business and escapes from my hands. I am the single most destructive force this company has ever seen. He says last week Big Show sent me a challenge for Backlash and I never back down from a fight however I have one condition before I agree to destroy Big Show one more time.

    He says that he already ended the career of Brock Lesnar and there is only top at the food chain for one monster. He says Big Show was the old monster among men but it is time to place him on the pasture. Braun says he will agree to the match if Big Show puts his career on the line! Braun throws the microphone down as he heads to the back when Big Show appears on a titantron in a hotel room.

    Big Show says he was asked by Mick Foley to stay away from Raw this week after what you did to Brock Lesnar. However I asked to be informed as soon as you responded to my challenge. You see you man handled me at Wrestlemania in a way very few men ever could. I need to know I can still be the dominant force I have been for years. Show says he wanted to go out on his own terms but if he has to put his career on the line to prove he is still the Giant of WWE then he will do it and promises to not just defeat Braun but to destroy him. The satellite link then cuts out as Braun smiles as we cut to an ad break before the contract signing.

    We come back to find a table set up in the ring as Mick Foley has a microphone in hand as he announces to the live crowd that this is the official contract for HHH vs Seth Rollins at Backlash. He then welcomes HHH out first who makes his way out to the ring flanked by his other half Stephanie McMahon. HHH has his suit on and once in the ring he snatches the pen from the hand of Mick Foley before signing the contract without even reading it.

    HHH tells Foley that I have just signed Seth Rollins's death warrant and promises to destroy Seth Rollins. Weirdly Mick Foley just smiles as he invites Seth Rollins to now make his way to the ring to sign the contract. Seth gets a ton of cheers from the crowd before he slides into the ring staring down the authority in the ring. He makes his way over to the table as he looks over the contract and has a little smirk on his face before he signs the contract.

    Rollins places the pen down as HHH grabs the mic. HHH says how does it feel sealing your own fate? HHH says I made you and now I will break you.Rollins smirks saying you never made me. I made myself and my biggest regret was using the authority to get to the top because I proved when I won the WWE title again at Money in the bank last year I do not need you. I never needed you to be the man. I am SETH FREAKIN ROLLINS and I always have a plan. Ain't that right Mick? Mick Foley at this point lets out a big smile as Steph and HHH look confused.

    Mick Foley says you really should have read the contract. HHH gets in Foley face asking what did you do. Seth tells the authority that he and Foley wanted a few of stipulations for our encounter at Backlash.That if I beat you that you are no longer the co-GM of Monday Night Raw. Also if I win the Raw GM can only be sacked by the commissioner with permission of Vincent Kennedy McMahon. Lastly if I win Mick Foley will be able to pick his replacement as Raw GM with the same stipulation in place. Stephanie goes mental at the pair saying she runs this show however Foley tells her to read the contract.

    Foley tells Stephanie I may have gotten older but I have never been someone you can just walk over. I have been thrown off Hell in a cell itself and gone to war destroying my body. Hell I went to war with your son of a bitch husband and you think I am some weak fool you can walk allover! I will not let you destroy this show with your dictatorship! You killed my interest in running this show but I am not leaving it to rot in your hands. I have faith in Seth to get the job done and if he loses well I would not want to be here to see the carnage you would create anyway. Steph asks who he thinks he is before slapping him in the face. Foley goes to strike Stephanie back when HHH gets in the way. However before he can do much he gets met with a knee strike from Seth Rollins! Seth then runs off the ropes hitting a curb stomp to HHH laying him out in the ring as Rollins outsmarts the Game once again! Steph goes to check on her husband whilst Seth Rollins and Mick Foley head up the ramp delighted to have gotten one up on the authority before we cut to the ring for the next match of the show.

    Match 3: The Revival vs The Golden Truth

    The Revival here take on the Golden Truth as commentary mention the return of the The Revival to Monday Night Raw attacking the Rhodes Scholars! The Golden Truth put on a decent showing however the Revival show why they are former 2 time NXT tag team champions as they pick up the win with the Shatter machine. They then stand in the ring before giving Goldust a kick for good measure asking for a pair of microphones as they have something to say.

    Winners via pinfall: The Revival (7:22)

    The Revival says they are back on Monday Night Raw. They tell the fans they are the best tag team in the world today promising now they have taken care of business down in NXT they are coming for the WWE tag team titles. However the realised they had to send a message to the tag division. They remind the crowd that they fought for the WWE tag team titles against The Rhodes Scholars in a fatal 4 way ladder match! However Rhodes Scholars escaped with the win!

    They tell the crowd that if it was a two on two match with any of those teams we would have come out on top but we were robbed! When we went away to NXT we knew that Rhodes Scholars would fall apart as they are not a real team and now we get to finish them off before we claim what is rightfully ours. Before the Revival can carry on the Rhodes Scholars make their way out to a mixed reaction from the crowd.

    Damien Sandow is about to speak when Cody Rhodes as who they think they are.He tells the pair that they won that match as they were the best team and will gladly beat some sense into the pair saying how about right now. Sandow looks annoyed at his partner interrupting him. Cody starts to head to the ring followed by Sandow who shakes his head but the Revival slide out as soon as the Rhodes Scholars get in the ring.They tell the pair that they choose when they fight telling them they will see them at Backlash walking off laughing as Cody rages in the ring as he can be heard saying “FUCK THE REVIVAL” whilst Sandow keeps calm and stoic in the ring as we cut to an ad break.

    We cut to a video package which hypes up the Hardy Boyz who will be returning to Monday Night Raw as it shows off their exploits in the past highlighting the fact the pair have not just been one of the top teams in WWE but also had great success as singles competitors before finishing the package off saying returning at Backlash.

    We cut to a smug looking Roman Reigns who says he does not have much time to waste as he has more important people to see then these stupid fans so is not in the arena tonight. He says however at Backlash he will do what he does best and prove himself to be the greatest superstar today as he crushes the fans dream one more time. Believe Dat. Reigns walks off with a smug look on his face before Raw goes to an ad break.

    Becky Lynch makes her way out to cheers from the crowd as she looks to be a little more deflated then usual after the ad break. She takes her time as she makes her way to the ring before taking a moment to speak to the crowd. She says she has had people asking her all week about what she meant by her comments last week. They have been tweeting me and facebooking me asking me what I meant.

    Becky Lynch says last week I mentioned that I am having doubts about the way I have gone about things since coming to the main roster. You see I have always tried to do things the right way because that is who I am as a person. I try to do things the correct way but recently I saw another person who is just like me in that regard Bayley got taken out by Sasha Banks. You see the main goal for any female in this company is to become Women champion yet I am the only member of the 4 horsewomen to not become a champion. However before she can carry on we hear the music of Alexa Bliss hit as she makes her way to the ring with a smug look on her face.

    Alexa Bliss asks if Becky is going to cry because the world is not fair.Becky rolls her eyes as Bliss says that in this business you need friends or that killer edge with the willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done. Becky reminds Bliss she is yet to become Women's champion herself but Bliss tells Becky that she is still young whilst Becky has been around for much longer telling her that she is just too soft. Becky has had enough of Bliss as she takes her down to the mat laying into her. However before the battle is going on Mick Foley makes his way out to the ring telling the pair if you want to fight then you can face each other right now. Mick Foley calls for a referee to come out as we go to an ad break before the match next.

    Match 4: Alexa Bliss vs Becky Lynch

    Alexa Bliss's mouth comes back to haunt her as Becky controls the whole match here as Bliss cannot handle the fire of Becky who has a point to prove. However in the closing stages the imposing Nia Jax makes her way out and whilst Alexa distracts the ref Nia Jax attacks Becky laying her out. Bliss takes advantage of this as she connects with her Snap DDT pinning Becky here. After the match Bliss celebrates with her friend Nia Jax showing a new alliance as Becky gets up post-match kicking the ropes frustrated to have been screwed out of a win once again!

    Winner via pinfall: Alexa Bliss (8:25)

    We cut to Cesaro as he is in a nice suit and can be seen enjoying a fine wine like the classy man he is. He sips the wine before saying that his loss to Brock Lesnar is something that he plans to use to drive him. You see he came so close to the top of the mountain and proving himself but being second best is not enough. He does not just want to meet the bar in WWE he wants to set it. He says a good friend and rival holds the World title but once he defeats Shinsuke and Reigns he is coming for the World title whoever is holding the gold. Cesaro goes back to drinking his wine as we cut to an ad break before we cut to the ring as we can see the highlight reel set up.

    Chris Jericho makes his way out to a pop from the crowd as he welcomes the fans to RAW IS JERICHO! He tells the crowd to drink it in MAN as he says tonight on the Highlight reel he will be interviewing the two men who will be fighting in a Wrestlemania rematch at Backlash for the World title. He says we have the World champion the underdog from the underground Sami Zayn and the submission machine Samoa Joe. He says tonight he will be speaking to both men as he wonders how they will cope with an extreme rules match and hey I may have my eyes on getting back that big gold belt. Jericho then goes to introduce his first guest on the highlight reel Sami Zayn.

    Sami Zayn makes the way out as he dances on the top of the ramp as he holds the World title in the air to cheers from the fans. He makes his way slowly to the ring before shaking Jericho's hand as he takes a seat on one of the chairs in the ring. Sami thanks Jericho for having him but Jericho tells him his glad to give him the gift of jericho drink it in man as he tells him he wanted to talk to a man he hopes to be facing for that title as well as his challenger. Sami tells Jericho if you want to get this you will have to beat me as he promises to beat Joe once again.

    Jericho smirks saying he himself knows how great it feels walking out of Wrestlemania as the World champion but how did Sami feel after conquering Samoa Joe? Sami said he felt very sore if I am honest Jericho. He tells Jericho it was the greatest moment of his career stopping Samoa Joe and finally proving I can win the big one. Jericho then changes the subject to NXT where he won the NXT finally and then lost it a few weeks later to his former friend. Zayn tells Jericho that he is not going to lose it in a short time again. He tells Jericho the war with his former friend Owens made me stronger and whilst Owens has been struggling on Smackdown I have thrived on Monday Night Raw.

    However before Chris Jericho can carry on asking questions Samoa Joe's music hits to heat from the crowd. Jericho gets up from his chair as Samoa Joe comes out and calls him a stupid idiot telling him to wait till he calls him out. Samoa Joe tells Chris that he waits for no man and I will make my way out to this ring, my ring when I want. Joe heads down to the ring as he slides in getting in Jericho's face advising him to not provoke him as he will end Jericho career which gets massive boos from the crowd.

    Jericho walks away towards the ring corner as Samoa Joe turns to the World champion Sami Zayn. Samoa Joe says you keep acting like your win at Wrestlemania was anything but a miracle. I battered you around that ring and I promise you next time you step into the ring with me in an environment where I can use any weapon I can get my hand on as well? Sami Zayn says he has heard this kind of talk all of his career and I am sick of it. Yeah I have been the underdog from the underground and maybe I still am but at Wrestlemania I ended you title reign which lasted over 200 days proving I am the World champion and I belong at the top! I pinned you in the middle of the ring 1 2 3!

    Samoa Joe smirks telling Zayn let me show you what I am capable of when Joe turns around and takes Jericho down to the mat! Sami Zayn tries to break it up but Joe counters him as he takes him down to the mat with a belly to back suplex! Samoa Joe then turns to Chris Jericho who looks to hit him with a codebreaker but Joe grabs hold of him lifting him onto his shoulders connecting with a musclebuster! Joe then turns to the rising Sami Zayn before he locks in the Coquina clutch! Refs start to come out from the back to break it up finally forcing Samoa Joe off the champion. Joe gets dragged away by refs promising that Zayn is on borrowed time as we cut to an ad break.

    Chris Jericho after the ad break is shown walking through the back looking furious as he is holding his list as he mutters to himself right that does it. He then looks up shouting to no one in particular SAMOA JOE YOU JUST MADE THE LIST as he writes down Samoa Joe's name on his list. At this point Rusev and Lana walk up to him. Jericho asks if he can help Rusev and Rusev smiles saying he can. You see I proved my greatness at Mania defeating Kurt Angle marking a great Rusev day and now I want to beat another legend. Lana challenges Jericho to face her husband at Backlash which Jericho agrees to as Rusev walks off chanting “RUSEV DAY” as Jericho shakes his head calling Rusev a stupid idiot.

    Match 5: Cedric Alexander vs Nick Aldis

    Cedric starts off the match well as Nick Aldis looks to get used to being a solo wrestler now. As the match goes on Nick Aldis uses cheap tricks and his power to control the match. However towards the end Wade Barrett makes his way out to a pop from the crowd as he tells Nick Aldis he has got some bad news. He tells Aldis that not only will he lose at Backlash but right now as Cedric spins Aldis around hitting him with a lumbar check! Cedric covers Aldis for the 3 count picking up the massive win!

    Winner via pinfall: Cedric Alexander (9:33)

    Cedric stands tall in the ring before he is soon joined by Wade Barrett. Cedric slides out of the ring as Barrett waits for Nick Aldis to rise to his feet before he connects with the bullhammer to the face knocking Aldis down to the mat once again. Barrett stands tall over Aldis mocking him whilst the crowd cheer for Bad News Barrett. We cut to an ad break before Mickie James comes out.

    Mickie James gets a decent pop from the crowd as she has a microphone in her hand. She smiles for the crowd before saying last week Sasha did what she does best. Run her mouth and inflate her own ego. She tells the crowd that she has seen some big egos in her time but Sasha might have the biggest of any wrestler I have faced past or present. She tells Sasha that what she did to Bayley was one of the worst things she has seen and that she can talk about how no legend from the past can match up to her but I promise that I will show her why I am a 6 time women's champion.

    Sasha Banks at this point makes her way out holding the Women's title in her hand to boos from the crowd. She has a smug look on her face as she tells Mickie what she did to Bayley was nothing personal. She just had what belongs to the boss of this division. However you Mickie you are the past. The women who came before me they are not on my level heck even the first women to hold this title in the new era Charlotte is a pale imitation of a man who wishes he was a good as me. Mickie says back do you hear the delusion that is coming out of your mouth?

    Sasha however tells Mickie that every word she speaks is the truth. Why should she act humble when she is greatness in human form? I am the best in this division past, present and future because I am the BOSS.Sasha says she will even prove it as she tells the crowd and the cameras that any diva or women's wrestler from the past watching this who disagrees with my words come to Monday Night Raw in Colmbus Ohio next week and I will face you in this ring as I show this old lady what awaits her as she shall fall like everyone else who challenges me for my throne! Sasha drops the microphone holding the Women's title in the air as she makes her way to the back.

    Match 6: Hideo Itami vs Bo Dallas

    Bo Dallas here takes on Hideo Itami who seems even more fired up and annoyed then usual. Bo Dallas tries his best to pick up the shock win over Hideo but it is no use as Hideo uses the shotgun knee to put away Bo before he demands respect to boos from the crowd.

    Winner via pinfall: Hideo Itami (6:43)

    The Primetime players are shown backstage as they are watching the video package for the Hardy Boyz who are making their return to Monday Night Raw at Backlash. They mock the pair saying that those two old hacks have nothing on themselves promising to show them what millions of dollars looks like. Young says he spoke to HHH and he made the match for them to show why they should be next in line for the tag team titles. We cut to an ad break before the main event match between the New Day and the Club

    Main Event: WWE tag team titles match: The New Day (c) w/Kofi Kingston vs The Club w/Finn Balor

    The match starts off normal enough with both teams very familiar with each other as this feud has been ongoing for the last 8 months now on and off. However after 6 minutes or so when Finn tries to get involved Kofi attacks him at ringside. This causes the Club to go after Kofi and soon the New Day follow to the outside starting a brawl. The ring then tells the ref to ring the bell calling this a no contest!

    Winners: No Contest (6:16)

    The crowd cheer for the chaos until Mick Foley makes his out telling both teams to stop this right now. However both teams do not even notice Mick Foley is there and the brawl carries on between the two teams.Mick Foley tells the teams that this needs to stop now but both teams carry on fighting till Foley says fine you want to wage war on each other non-stop? I am bringing an old stipulation back that has not been seen in the WWE and was from the old days in WCW. At Backlash it will be a 3 vs 3 match with the WWE tag team titles and the US title on the line in a War Games match. All 6 men stop in their tracks looking shocked at that announcement as Raw fades to black on that bombshell.

    Matchcard for Backlash:

    World title extreme rules match: Sami Zayn (c) vs Samoa Joe

    If Seth wins HHH is no longer Co-Raw GM:

    HHH vs Seth Rollins

    AJ Styles injured at a house show:

    AJ Styles over the weekend was wrestling on a house show against Luke Harper for the WWE title. However towards the end of the match AJ Styles picked up a serious hand injury causing the medical team to stop the match. This comes as very bad timing for the Phenomenal one as he had just come off the biggest win of his career at Wrestlemania. What this means for his WWE title reign? Will AJ have to relinquish the WWE title? No word is coming from WWE yet as to what will happen and how serious the injury is. We may have to wait till Smackdown Live to find out the full extent of the injuries.

    SD Live Re: WWE: A Different Future


    April 11th

    Boston, Massachusetts:

    Smackdown starts off with a cold open showing a scene from earlier on in the day. Bryan is shown backstage by the parking lot when we see Randy Orton make his way out of his car as Daniel Bryan walks up to him. Orton smirks asking Bryan what does he want. Bryan tells Orton to drive home as he is suspended until till after Battleground. Orton protests this telling Bryan you can't do that. Bryan asks why? He tells Orton he has been out of order lately before telling him if Orton does not violate the rules of the suspension there will be no further repercussions. Orton gives Bryan a death glare saying keep pushing me and I will make my time in the authority seem like child'splay. Orton walks away and back into his car driving off as Bryan heads to the arena still not in a good mood. We get the usual introduction to Smackdown Live after this before cutting to the ring as Daniel Bryan's music hits to a massive pop from the crowd.

    Bryan gets into the ring and starts off by saying that he has sent Randy Orton home till after Battleground for his actions in recent weeks. He says that Orton has put two promising stars on the shelf and he will not stand for that on his show. He says however that issue is dealt with for now I want to talk about the WWE champion AJ Styles.Last week the Wyatts ruined out Wrestlemania rematch and trashed the main event. However AJ is a fighter and someone who has always been a fighter so he fought Luke Harper at one of our live show events when this happened. We see a picture of AJ having to get medical attention before cutting back to the ring.

    Daniel Bryan says that AJ Styles is not here tonight but he will be here next week. He also tells us that AJ has spoken to me and even though I do not want to reward superstars for attacking the champion, he has personally requested to put his title on the line if it means getting his hands on the Eater of Worlds Bray Wyatt! On that note we hear the music of the Wyatt Family hit as they make their way down to the ring. The family get in the ring and almost surround Bryan before Bray says he promises he will not hurt the traitor as I want to save you all even the man who stabbed me in the back. The crowd boo Bray as he reminds them of what he did to the Undertaker getting even more boos from the crowd. Bray says he will defeat all of the false idols within WWE and take the holy grail for himself.

    Bryan says what you did last week was unnecessary and tells Bray that if he had asked for the title shot after your victory against the Undertaker I would have granted it. Bray laughs telling Bryan how silly he is saying that the attack was to send a message that you either join us or you shall fall. Soon this brand will be mine and everyone will be following the buzzards once I get the holy grail!Bryan tells Bray that he is facing Sheamus in the main event tonight as Bray laughs saying he will be another man to fall victim to us or he will join us. The Wyatts then leave as Bryan looks worried as we cut to an ad break before the next match on the show.

    Match 1: Breezedango vs The Gentleman Society

    Breezedango makes their way out with their selfie sticks in hand when suddenly they get attacked from behind by the Gentleman society who are clearly still heated after their mockery of Simon Gotch last week. They throw the pair towards the ring and in the early stages are in total control of the match.

    However their anger gets the better of them which allows Breezedango to take control for a bit of the match. However in the end they end up being too cocky which allows Gallagher to lock in a crucifix armbar onto Breeze forcing him to tap out giving the Gentleman society the win! Fandango after the match pulls his partner from the ring who is holding his arm in pain as the Gentleman society stare on looking happy to have gotten a measure of revenge.

    Winners via submission: The Gentleman society (8:50)

    Breezedango are walking through the backstage area when they run into the Miz who shakes his head. Breezedango questions why the Miz is shaking his head but Miz tells the pair that look what is happening to the first tag team champions on Smackdown Live. They are being mishandled and mistreated by a corrupt GM abusing his power. He says people like us should stick together. Both men ponder what he is saying before he tells them they do not have to say yes just yet but to think about it as an A-lister always needs an entourage. The camera cuts away as the Miz walks away. We cut to Daniel Bryan who is in his office.

    We then see Tommasa Cimapa and Mustafa Ali sat down on chairs in his office. He says he knows both men have had issues with each other in recent weeks but that they will have the chance to settle this in the ring tonight. He adds a little stipulation to the match as well. He says whoever wins the match will face Zack Sabre Jr for the IC title at Battleground. Both men stare each other down as we cut to the ring as we see everyone's favourite local jobber James Ellisworth.

    He is standing in the ring as he waits for his opponent as Bobby Rhoode's entrance hits to a mixed reaction as the crowd start to sing along. However as Bobby is part way through the entrance he tells the people in the back to cut his music. He tells the crowd that you are not glorious enough to sing along to my entrance song so stop. He looks towards the ring to see who he is facing as he lifts the microphone back up to his mouth.

    Rhoode tells the crowd that he is a former NXT champion and should be fighting top calibre opponents not some no chin wonder they dragged off the street. How do you people expect me to make this show glorious when this is what you put in front of me? Bobby Rhoode then heads to the back as his music hits. However as he is walking to the back he said what did I say? The people in the back cut the music getting boos from the crowd as Rhoode heads to the back leaving Ellisworth stood in the ring as we go to an ad break before we get the number one contender's match for the IC title next.


    Match 2: Number one contender's match: Mustafa Ali vs Tommasa Cimapa

    Mustafa Ali and Cimapa both show off their great in ring ability. The story throughout the match is Cimapa trying to weaken the legs of Ali and take away his high-flying ability. Ali meanwhile tries to use his aerial offence to overcome the psycho killer. However in the end Cimapa's relentless assault is too much as he is able to pick up the win with Project Cimapa for the 3 count. After the match is finished Cimapa snatches his hand away from the ref before signalling he is coming for the IC title belt. We cut to the back as Renee Young is with the IC champion Zack Sabre Jr.


    Winner via pinfall: Tommasa Cimapa (13:17)

    Renee asks Sabre how he is feeling about having to face Cimapa at Battleground for the IC title. Sabre smiles saying that Cimapa is someone he has gone to war with before in promotions around the world so he knows how much of a threat to his title Cimapa is. However I also know how to beat him and I intend to make Cimapa just tap out. Sabre walks off with his IC title as we cut elsewhere backstage.

    The camera cuts in on Ambrose and Corbin who once again are going to war with each other as they start nailing lefts and rights as neither man will let the issue die down. At this point Bryan comes round the corner as a bunch of security try to break it up. However Ambrose and Corbin start taking out the security who are trying to stop them from battering each other!

    Both men taken out all of the members of the security force as they start pummelling each other when a bunch of the other members of the Smackdown Live roster come out as Bryan calls for them to help bring this to a halt. This finally brings the pair to a stand still as both men are still seething at each other. Bryan says that this has to end. This cannot keep happening every week. He tells them that they will have a Wrestlemania rematch at Battleground with the winner getting a shot at what this all started over. The WWE title. The winner will face whoever is the WWE champion at Money in the Bank. He tells both men that if they want that match to still be for the number one contendership for the WWE title they need to leave the arena and stay away from each other right now. Both men stand there seething before following Bryan's request as they head off in separate directions as the wrestlers act like a human fence separating the pair. We then cut to the ring as we get ready for the Cruiserweight tile match which is next.

    Neville makes his way to the ring as he looks focused on getting the Cruiserweight title back in his possession as Kidd escaped at Wrestlemania and retained his title. Tyson Kidd makes his way out as he holds the Cruiserweight title in the air saying he should not even have to do this. He tells the crowd that Neville is not good enough for this title FACT! He slides in the ring as he passes the ref the title who rings the bell to start the match.


    Match 3: Cruiserweight title match: Tyson Kidd vs Neville

    As soon as Neville goes to attack Kidd, Kidd dodges before he kicks Neville in balls right in front of the ref. The ref rings the bell for DQ meaning Neville wins but Kidd is still the Cruiserweight champion!


    Winner via DQ: Neville (0:06)

    Tyson Kidd snatches the Cruiserweight title off of the timekeeper at ringside before he grabs a microphone as well. He says this is a disgrace FACT! I already beat this loser at Wrestlemania and I should not have to waste my time facing him. He is not on my level. Kidd throws the microphone down to the floor as he heads to the back holding his Cruiserweight title in the air. In the ring Neville struggles to his feet selling the low blow as he gives Kidd a death glare. Meanwhile Kidd heads up the ramp laughing before we cut to the back stage area.

    Renee Young is interviewing Sheamus backstage. She asks him how he is feeling ahead of what could be a massive main event for him. Sheamus says he is going into this match looking for one thing. To fight and tells Renee that kicking Bray's head off will put him in contention for a WWE title shot. Sheamus walks off before we cut to the ring as Drew McIntyre starts to make his way out to a pop from the crowd.

    Drew McIntyre looks like he is about to speak but before he can say a word Kevin Owens's music hits to a mixed reaction. Kevin Owens asks Drew if he realises what show he is on. Drew says nothing not acknowledging Kevin Owens as KO joins him in the ring. Kevin Owens tells Drew that this is the Kevin Owens show. Drew quips back that it looks like they changed the name of it whilst I was away.

    Owens says that was funny but do you know what is truly funny? You thinking you are going to rise to the top of this brand with me around. Drew asks is that so? Kevin Owens tell Drew that he came in with such promise and was hand picked to lead the company but look what happened? You failed so badly that you made a stupid rock band. Drew tells Kevin that he does not try to hide his past and that past is the reason why he went away to refocus.

    Owens however tells Drew that I came in with fire and promise however I delivered on that promise when I won the NXT title from Sami Zayn. You see unlike you I will keep rising and rising to the top. You got lucky when you threw me out of the Andre the Giant battle royal. Now I will show you why this is my show. Kevin Owens gets ready to fight as Drew tells Kevin Owens if he wants a fight he has no problem giving him one.

    Drew drops the microphone as he charges at Owens who slides under the bottom rope avoiding Drew to boos from the crowd. Owens smirks saying we don't do things on your time we do them on mine. I will show you soon why you will not make it to the top but this is my show and we will fight when I say so. Owens walks off up the ramp taunting Drew as Drew stands in the ring daring Kevin Owens to face him in the ring. We go to an ad break before we get the next match of the night.

    Match 4: Rhyno vs Tony Nese

    Tony Nese tries his best to overcome the size difference but in the end Rhyno puts him away in fairly quick fashion with a gore.

    Winner via pinfall: Rhyno (3:22)

    However as Rhyno is celebrating in the ring The Miz makes his way out. Rhyno glares clearly annoyed by The Miz's presence out here. The Miz tells Rhyno that was a very impressive result and says that is the kind of talent that should be getting title matches. Rhyno stands there confused as The Miz says you were being held back by Rob Van Dam and that you needed him to retire so you could be set free.

    Rhyno at this point seems to be getting bored of listening to what The Miz has to say and looks to leave the ring when The Miz stops him saying I am not finished yet. I need someone of your skills to fight against this corrupt authority. Miz tells Rhyno that he has had a career of wasted potential but under the leadership of The Miz he might finally rise to the heights he belongs at thanks to my A-list contacts. The Miz asks Rhyno what he has to say. Rhyno thinks it over for a few moments before he hits The Miz with a GORE! Rhyno gets back up to his feet before walking off as we cut to an ad break. When we come back American Alpha are with Dasha.

    Dasha asks them how they feel about retiring RVD however Gable says that as much as he respects RVD when these titles are on the line if it means our opponents have to retire then we will fight to keep these. Jordan says there is no team in WWE as good as we are and promises to beat all comers. However before anything else can be said Jimmy shouts you hear this uce, they think they beat us.

    Gable replies well we did beat you as your shoulders were pinned to the mat 1 2 3. Jey however says that win was a fluke saying the Usos were in control of the match and were this close to claiming what should have been ours from the start. We were screwed in the World tag team titles tournament and these fans have been screwing us non-stop. Jimmy demands a rematch at Battleground. Jordan says you are on promising to beat them once again and show why they run this division. Gable and Jordan offer the pair a handshake as a sign of respect but they each get a superkick for their troubles. Jey then tells the pair to respect that as they walk off before we cut elsewhere backstage.

    We cut to the back as we can see Kalisto and Hunico hanging out in their dressing room when they are confronted by No Way Jose and Rich Swann. No Way Jose tells the pair they really killed the mood and they want payback for last week. Hunico smirks as Kalisto says he will gladly beat him up next week. No Way Jose says you are on as he and Rich Swann dance out of the room leaving the smirking pair of Hunico and Kalisto stood their looking on.


    Main Event: Sheamus vs Bray Wyatt w/The Wyatt Family

    This is a brawl with the Wyatts standing at ringside not getting involved in the match instead watching their leader fight. Sheamus tries to overcome Bray but in the end Bray hits Sister Abigail for the win.


    Winner via pinfall: Bray Wyatt (11:09)

    After the match is finished Bray stands in the ring as he invites his followers to join him. They stand behind him as he shouts to the crowd that the holy grail will be his soon and to follow the buzzards as we go off the air.

    Main Event Re: WWE: A Different Future

    April 13th

    Drew Gulak vs Lince Dorado

    Drew Gulak here takes on Lince Dorado in a fun match as Lince tries to use his high flying offence to the annoyance of Drew Gulak. Drew however is able to capitalise off of a mistake by Lince to lock in his dragon sleeper leaving Lince with no choice but to tap out.

    Winner via submission: Drew Gulak (11:55)

    Apollo Crews vs Ariya Davari

    Apollo Crews takes on Davari in a decent match. Davari tries to use the tricks that Kendrick has been passing on to him but in the end Apollo is able to put him away with the Sitout powerbomb in relatively quick fashion.

    Winner via pinfall: Apollo Crews (6:24)

    Big Cass vs Primo w/Epico

    Big Cass takes on Primo in a very short match as he puts away one half of the Shining stars with a big boot. Post-match Epico tries to attack Big Cass but gets taken out as well.

    Winner via pinfall: Big Cass (2:42)


    Main event: Paige vs Emma w/Dana Brooke

    Both women stare at each other to start the match as Emma offers Paige a handshake. Paige accepts it as the ref rings the bell. Both women show a lot of respect to each other and stay within the rules. They show the crowd why they were two of the women who started the idea of a Women's revolution putting on a great showing. However in the end Paige is able to put away Emma as she connects with the Ram-paige for the win.

    Winner via pinfall: Paige (15:49)

    After the match both women shake hands as a sign of respect before Main Event fades to black.

    Just read Mania and it was really good! I'll catch up in the next few days for proper reviews!
    We're just some grizzled, young vets...

    Raw Re: WWE: A Different Future


    April 17th:

    Columbus Ohio

    We start the show off in Columbus Ohio as we gets a video package showing previous War Games matches in the early nineties from WCW's past. Once that is finished the New Day's music hits as they make their way to the ring to a pop from the crowd. They have their tag team titles around their waist as they make their way to the ring looking more focused then usual.

    Big E takes the microphone saying in 6 days time we step into a structure not seen in the WWE before. We step into the unknown as we look to walk out with these WWE tag team championship and my US title. The New Day when we formed were stepping into the unknown and look where we are now. He says this match will be different to the matches of the past.

    Woods takes over saying he always does his research and questioned Foley about the rules of the match. Two men start with there being a coin toss before the match to see which team get an entrant in first. After the first 5 minutes of the match the first entrant joins us in the match. However from that point every 3 minutes a new man enters from alternating teams. Once all 6 men are in the match the first team to pick up a pinfall or submission shall win. Also if Finn or any of the club try to climb out of the cage and escape to the floor they will forfeit the match!

    Kofi takes over on the microphone as he says the Club have had the edge over them for the better part of the last 8 months as they have made sure to have a numbers advantage but finally at Backlash it will be 3 vs 3. They won't be able to take out Woods or any of us and we will keep our tag team titles. Big E then chimes in saying and I will have double booty as I will have my US title back in around my waist. Big E says that the time for games is over and we are ready for WAR!

    However as the New Day are about to head to the back the Club make their way out to the ring lead by their leader and US champion Finn Balor. Finn has a smirk on his face as he tells the New Day that they are children and have no idea of the meaning of the word war. Finn says we used to be called the bullet club because we take names and destroy people. Heck ask your buddy Xaiver how many times we have broken his arm? We have started to lose count. Finn lets out a laugh before passing Gallows the mic.

    Gallows says they only lost their titles at Wrestlemania because it was a triple threat match and there is no way 2 on 2 they would lose to a couple of nerds. Woods says we may be nerds but we will fight you right now. Finn takes over telling Woods he will be glad to fight him and break that arm one more time. Heck he will even put the US title on the line to fight him tonight. Woods looks unsure but Big E says you are on as he gives the nod for his friend to fight Finn for that title tonight in the main event. We cut to an ad break before we comeback to Mick Foley talking with Seth Rollins in his office.

    Mick Foley says he was just making that US title match Finn challenged Xaiver to official for the main event before he shakes Seth's hand thanking him for coming up with the plan to remove HHH and Steph from Monday night raw. Rollins smiles telling Foley he was always called the architect for a reason though he warns Foley to be careful as HHH is wounded and that is when HHH is at his most deadly. Foley promises Seth he will be safe and tells him to get ready for his match this Sunday. Rollins walks off as Foley smiles before we cut to the ring as Ember Moon looks to take on Carmella.

    Match 1: Ember Moon vs Carmella w/Tamina and Summer Rae

    The BFF's for the most part don't interfere in the match but towards the end Ember goes the eclipse when Tamina distracts the ref and Summer Rae pushes her off the top rope! Carmella then goes to attack Ember however Ember quickly rolls Carmella up getting the 3 count and the win!

    Winner via pinfall: Ember Moon (8:14)

    However as soon as the bell rings to declare Ember Moon the winner Summer Rae and Tamina run into the ring attacking Ember Moon! Both of the women lay Ember Moon out shouting that they run this division before Summer hits the Summer Crush! They stand tall over Ember Moon to boos from the crowd before we cut to a hype package for the Hardy Boyz.

    The Hardy Boyz once again are shown to be facing people from the past and their past exploits before we cut to the pair as Hardy is dressed in his usual face paint whilst Matt looks slightly off. He has white hair with a black streak in his hair. Jeff leads the promo saying this has been a long time coming but we are back to WWE. Matt says we have reunited and been travelling the world and we are back to DELETE all our enemies. Jeff gives Matt a weird look before we cut away with the package finishing with a graphic coming up saying returning this Sunday!

    The Prime time players are shown backstage watching it with a bunch of popcorn in their hands as the crowd can be heard shouting DELETE DELETE DELETE! Titus says they are not worth a million dollars like us. Darren says they may have travelled the world but only cause they could not cut it here. Titus promises that they will defeat the Hardy Boyz and consign them to the past where they belong! The camera fades away as we cut to an ad break.

    Match 2: Wade Barrett vs Hideo Itami

    Hideo here takes on Wade Barrett who gets a number of cheers from the crowd as well as bad news chants after having it re-added to the start of his entrance. Wade controls the match with his power but Hideo is able to fight back using his fury and speed to stay in the match. However towards the end Barrett's power is too much as he hits Wasteland on Hideo which gets a 2 count! However before he can go fora bullhammer Nick Aldis's music hits. He makes his way out with shades and a shirt on distracting Barrett which allows Hideo to recover as he hits him with the Shotgun dropkick to pick up the win!

    Winner via pinfall: Hideo Itami (13:09)

    Nick Aldis makes his way to the ring as he stands over Barrett saying oh looks like your the one who got some bad news before promising to destroy him this Sunday and prove that you held me back from greatness. Aldis throws the microphone at him before sliding out of the ring as Barrett rises to his feet looking furious as Nick Aldis heads to the back going up the ramp.

    We cut to the back as we can see Jinder Mahal and the Singh Brothers stood there as Charly Caruso welcomes Jinder Mahal and the Singh brothers. Jinder however says you can call us the Indian Nightmares. Charly asks the reason for that name with Jinder calling the fans in America hateful towards him and they mistreat us due to the fact we look different so now we will destroy the people you cheer for and become the bad guys you think we are.

    Jinder says last week I ditched the deadweight around my neck and now we are the strongest 3 man unit in the WWE today. At this point we hear someone shout are you serious bro? The camera pans to the Hype Bros as they walk into shot with Ryder front and centre with Hawkins and Mojo stood behind. Mojo starts shouting you ain't hype we are hype. We are the hype as Curt Hawkins can be seen looking uncomfortable. Sunil says how dare you show us such disrespect but Jinder places his hand in front of his goon. He tells the Hype Bros that he will be glad to show them their power on the Backlash pre-show! Mojo shouts again we will show you the who is hype and Curt sighs at Mojo antics before he says the Indian nightmares need to face the facts that people don't like you because you are trash as the Hype Bros walks off leaving Jinder and his new goons furious.

    We come back from an ad break after that backstage segment as HHH's music hits to boos from the crowd. HHH gets in the ring as the crowd boo him whilst they chant for Seth Rollins as HHH lets out a small smile telling the fans that you can keep chanting his name now because this Sunday I destroy him for good! You see Seth was good but he only became great through my teaching.

    I helped mould him but he started to listen to you fans and was no longer doing what was best for business. He has now become a shadow of himself like the man who has put his trust in him Mick Foley. He tells the crowd that he wants Mick Foley to make his way out here right now. Mick Foley's music hits as the Co-GM makes his way to the ring joining HHH. HHH goes to speak when Foley tells HHH who the hell do you think you are?

    He tells HHH that maybe he is still the same hardcore legend he once was. My body has become worn down however I still have the same heart and spirit I always have. And I still have the eye for talent. You told me that Sami Zayn peaked in NXT and not to draft him but I held faith bringing him to Raw and look at him now. This gets cheers from the crowd as HHH says we all make mistakes like you did putting your faith in Rollins saying he won't be able to save you before he kicks Foley in the gut and PEDIGREES HIM TO THE MAT!

    HHH slides out of the ring before he grabs a familiar weapon from the past HIS SLEDGEHAMMER sliding into the ring as he gets ready to strike Foley when SETH ROLLINS RUNS OUT TO A POP FROM THE CROWD AS HERUNS OUT TO SAVE FOLEY! Rollins charges into the ring taking HHH down to the mat making him drop the sledgehammer as Rollins kicks it out of the ring. Seth takes a moment after taking HHH down to make sure Foley is OK but that is all the game needs as attacks him from behind before he spins him around as he connects with a pedigree. HHH stands over Rollins mocking him saying you have gotten soft however he is not done yet.

    HHH slides back out of the ring before he grabs the sledgehammer. He waits for Foley to rises to his knees before taking his head off with a sledgehammer shot. He then turns to Rollins before smashing his weakened knee with the sledgehammer 3 times before he drops it in the ring. HHH says he will leave some for Sunday as he walks off to the back as both men are down in the ring.

    We cut to the backstage area as we see Paige and Becky hanging out as we join them mid-conversation. She says look what happens when I try to do things the right way I get screwed over. Heck look at what the Authority are doing to Seth Rollins and Mick Foley. Paige goes to say something when Stephanie walks into the shot asking Becky who the hell does she think she is?

    She tells Becky that her husband always does what is best for business and tells Becky she can learn what true power is as she tells Becky to go out to that ring right now as she can face off against Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax in a handicap match right now. Paige goes to say something but Steph tells her to consider her next actions carefully. Steph walks off as Becky heads to the ring for the handicap match next.

    Match 3: Becky Lynch vs Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax

    Becky starts off the match well doing her best to try to overcome the odds here but soon the fact that Alexa and Nia can tag in and out means Becky gets worn down very quickly. As the match is coming to a close Paige makes her way to the ring with a steel chair in her hand as the ref is talking to Bliss. Paige clobbers Nia Jax before getting rid of the chair and hiding. Bliss tells the ref what happened but Becky takes advantage of Bliss being distracted hitting the Bexploder for the win!

    Winner via pinfall: Becky Lynch (8:32)

    We come back from an ad break after that match as we see Becky hugging her friend Paige backstage. Paige says I may not be a perfect person but I try to do what is right and whilst I am here with you I will have your back. Becky thanks Paige before Stephanie McMahon appears.

    Stephanie tells Paige that she is going to regret that. However Paige smirks telling her not really I have done way worse then that in my life. Paige tells Steph that she may think this is her show BUT THIS IS MY HOUSE as Paige walks away with Becky by her side smiling whilst Stephanie stews having been shown up here.

    Sasha Banks makes her way out to the ring as she holds her Women's title in the air. She slides into the ring as she lets out a smile whilst the crowd boo. She says you fools have never seen greatness before but rest your eyes on the Boss of this division. There is no superstar past or present who can stop me. She reminds us that last week she issued an open challenge to any “diva” from the past to come here tonight and step into my ring. Sasha waits for a few moments when Victoria's music hits to a pop as the former Women's champion makes her way out to the ring. Sasha lets out a smirk before Victoria slaps Sasha in the face starting this Women's title match!

    Match 4: Women title match: Sasha Banks (c) vs Victoria

    Victoria brings back the clock as she puts on a great showing in her WWE return as she runs Sasha as close as she can but in the end Sasha is able to pick up the win hitting a backbreaker before locking in the bank statement forcing the former Women's champion to tap out!

    Winner via submission: Sasha Banks (9:14)

    However after the ref rings the bells Sasha Banks refuses to let go of the hold keeping the Bank statement locked in on the veteran. However as this is happening Mickie James's music hits as she runs down to the ring! However as soon as James gets in the ring Sasha grabs her title and rolls out of the ring. Mickie tells her to get back into the ring! Sasha shakes her head saying nah we do this on the boss's time. Mickie stays in the ring as she checks on her former rival as we cut to the backstage area midway through an argument between the Rhodes Scholars members.

    Damien Sandow says you are not thinking clearly once again as he tells Cody that I should be facing Dash Wilder tonight not you. Cody says I am thinking just fine and I will destroy Dash tonight. Sandow goes on to say this is why we keep losing because you cannot focus on the bigger picture and your temper. Cody though not even bothering to listen tells Sandow fuck the revival promising to defeat Dash tonight walking off. Sandow throws his arms up in the air as he is reaching breaking point with his partner's actions.

    We cut to Rusev and Lana who get interviewed by Mike Rome who asks how he is feeling ahead of facing Jericho at Backlash. Rusev smiles saying he is looking forward to crushing Jericho and says he will betaking great interest in showing Jericho why every day is soon to be Rusev day. We hear the crowd start to chant Rusev day as we get ready for Samoa Joe vs Chris Jericho next.

    Match 5: Samoa Joe vs Chris Jericho

    Sami Zayn sits on the commentary table as Joe spends a lot of the match shouting abuse at Sami Zayn who keeps focused watching this encounter. Jericho tries to use his veteran experience and his numerous holds to wear Joe down. However as the match goes on the power Joe possesses is too much for Jericho. Joe is able to dodge an enziguri before he grabs hold of Jericho as he locks in the Coquina clutch forcing Jericho to tap out! Joe is not finished after the match as he asks someone at ringside for a microphone.

    Winner via submission: Samoa Joe (14:43)

    Joe tells Zayn savour these precious moments because very soon your hopes and dreams shall come to an end. Zayn says he is sick of talking and says he does not want to wait till Backlash as he charges in the ring attacking Joe. Joe drops the mic and the fight is on! Both men battle but the fact Samoa Joe just had a 15 minute match plays a big factor as Zayn takes control and sends Joe to the ringside floor. Joe punches the floor in frustration as Sami Zayn stands tall ahead of their World title match this Sunday!

    We cut elsewhere backstage as we see people fleeing. We hear commotion before the camera pans to see Big Show and Braun Strowman brawling with each other! Both men start laying into each other as they try to destroy each other once again. Both men are laying into each other before Strowman is leaning against a wall when Big Show charges at him and SPEARS HIM THROUGH A WALL!!! Both men lay in the wreckage out cold as the commentary team hype up the lengths Big Show has had to go here to try to stop Braun and will he able to stop Braun when his career is on the line this Sunday! We then cut back to the ring for the next match.

    Match 6: Dash Wilder w/Scott Dawson vs Cody Rhodes w/Damien Sandow

    Cody is the superior singles wrestler and would normally pick up the win.However once again his lack of control of his temper leads to Cody making mistakes as the match is going on and whilst Sandow tries to deal with Dawson as ringside distracting the ref, it allows Dash to rake the eyes of Cody. Dash then hits Cody with a double knee facebreaker for the 3 count and a massive win!

    Winner via pinfall: Dash Wilder (7:14)

    As soon as the bell rings Scott joins his partner in this ring as they hug each other celebrating the win. However Cody rolls out of the ring and gets into an argument with Sandow as soon as the match is finished. However as they are arguing the Revival use this to their advantage taking out both men from behind and standing tall once again. We cut to an ad break before the Big Dawg himself Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring to boos from the crowd!

    Roman has a suit on as he makes his way down to the ring with a cocky look on his face once again. He gets in the ring before asking if the fans are looking forward to the main event of Backlash. The fans cheers as some chant for Sami Zayn. Reigns laughs though saying that ain't the main event I AM. The crowd boo Reigns for that statement but he tells the crowd any time I step into this ring you people boo the hell out of me. You may hate me but you pay to watch me lose. Expect I don't.

    Reigns carries on saying I once again at Wrestlemania crushed your hopes and dreams as I defeated one of your heroes as per usual and now I get to beat him again as well another hero Cesaro. He tells the crowd that he cannot be stopped and this is just the beginning of the Roman empire as I will become a 4 time World champion believe DAT! However before he can leave the music of Shinsuke Nakamura hits to a pop from the crowd.

    The King of Strong style has a microphone in his hand before he says Roman Reigns is no big dawg, Roman Reigns is a big coward. He had to cheat to beat me but if he wants to play those games I can play back.Reigns tells Shinsuke he is jealous of the fact that Reigns did something that losers in Japan would not think to do. Shinsuke however fires back maybe it is time to show you what stars in Japan will do as he drops the microphone heading for the ring when Cesaro's music hits to a pop from the crowd as the Swiss superman makes his way out.

    Cesaro marches down in a suit as Shinsuke has joined Reigns in the ring. Cesaro says this is why I will be in the World title match at MITB because you two have your own personal squabble to deal with. Cesaro smiles taking off his shades as Reigns quips saying both men lost their matches at Mania so should not even be considered for a title shot. Cesaro however replies that Reigns also lost in a match with Brock Lesnar at Mania. Reigns gets angry and tells Cesaro he will do things Brock can only imagine to him. Shinsuke however says enough words time for action. Cesaro agrees as he lays Reigns out with a Swiss death! However before he can gather himself Shinsuke charges in hitting a Kinsaha to the face of Cesaro. Shinsuke then turns around as Reigns goes for a superman punch but Shinsuke rolls out of the way before he connects with a Kinsaha to Reigns as well. Shinsuke lets out a smile as he stands tall over the pair ahead of their clash this Sunday. We then cut to an ad break before the main event.

    Main Event: US title match: Finn Balor (c) w/The Club vs Xaiver Woodsw/the New Day

    Xaiver Woods puts on a great showing here as he looks to work off his ring rust after some recent time off thanks to the Club. Xaiver is even able to run Finn close but in the end as he is going for Limit Break, Karl Anderson pushes the ropes causing Woods to fall to the mat. On the outside Big E and Kofi gets into a fight with Anderson and Gallows whilst Finn climbs to the top rope and hits the Coup D'Grace for the 3 count!

    Winner via pinfall and still US champion: Finn Balor (13:14)

    On the outside the New Day are winning the battle when Finn uses the US title to take down Kofi from behind. At this point it is 3 on 1 on Big E who the Club beat down before they lift him into the air and connect with the Magic killer laying Big E out on the outside.
