    Due to demands from the USA network WWE had decided to bring back the brand spilt and spilt the roster into two parts.

    The draft took place with Raw's first pick being Seth Rollins whilst Smackdown drafted the WWE champion Dean Ambrose. Stephanie McMahon responded by picking the third man in the upcoming title match at Battleground Roman Reigns. Daniel Bryan and Shane talked it over before drafting AJ Styles as their next draft pick. The final pick Stephaine after talking with Vince declared her final pick to be the whole Women's roster to Monday night Raw.

    The main show ends up having 5 more picks on TV using the 3-2 format before carrying on to the network for the rest.The next picks for Raw is the WWE tag teams champions The New Day. Smackdown respond by picking the face of the company John Cena as their next draft pick. The next pick by Raw is a former NXT champion and they announce Finn Balor to Monday Night Raw. Shane goes on better declaring the Undertaker who of course does not appear with Raw lastly picking Brock Lesnar with Paul Heyman making his way out taking a shirt on behalf of his client.

    Re: WWE: A different future

    Build to Summerslam on Monday night Raw

    Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins vs Rhodes Scholars


    July 25th 2016

    Spoiler:

    Stephanie McMahon starts off Raw talking about how Reigns and Rollins let down Raw and now they will have find some other way to make sure the WWE title is on the A brand. She mentions she has a plan B but that will talked about at another time. She finishes off her speech on Raw which has other announcements before saying tonight we will see a number of former stars return to the main roster.

    Seth Rollins confronts Stephanie on her words but Stephanie says maybe they should have chosen Ambrose out of the SHIELD and that Seth's injury had made him lose his touch. Meanwhile to end the first Raw after the draft spilt Reigns talks about why he was suspended. He says he cracked under the pressure of being champion for people who hated him whilst being an icon for his daughter. He messed up a prescription for sleeping pills and denies the facts he would even need any thing performance enhancing. He blames the ref being down when he had Rollins out for the 3 count and at taking his eye off the ball trying to beat Rollins and let his brother take him surprise. He says since he can't fight for the WWE title for the moment he will do the next best thing before calling Seth Rollins to the ring.

    Rollins makes his way down to the ring and says they can do this right now before calling for a ref to come out when two men in hoodies run into the ring and attack the former shield members before one gets laid out with a Cross Rhodes and the other a You're Welcome as they show their faces to be Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow. Stephanie wonders who let them in the building and Foley says he did saying he hired them to the Monday night raw roster.

    August 1st 2016

    Spoiler:

    Next night on Raw whilst they discuss the plans for the night Rhodes Scholars make their way out to the ring dressed in street clothes. Sandow starts the promo off by telling Stephanie she is welcome for all the intrigue that they created by their return. They rant on the fact last time they were in WWE they were stuck having to dress as stupid little weirdos from Space and former stars or even her father whilst the crowd wanted them to be themselves and show the world why they are great. So when Foley offered us the chance to do so we knew we had to do it not only for them but for ourselves as well. Sandow says the best way to make an impact? By crashing a main event and seeing the golden child of the authority and the most hated man in the company in the ring? What better time to return before telling Stephanie they have a challenge for them to not only prove how good they are but to beat one of the best teams in WWE history before they leave the ring.

    We have a fun backstage segment with Cody reuniting with his brother who jokes about the stardust gimmick when Big Show barges past. Cody wishes Truth luck in his match later on before him and Sandow make the save post-match after Show beats Truth and tries to inflict more damage post-match which Goldust fails to stop.

    Reigns comes out to the ring later in the show and says he does not care about what the crowd think of him he will be the top guy in this company and he is not going to let 2 failures come into his company and try to make a name using him saying he would take them on by himself if he has to. Seth makes his way down to the ring with Reigns threatening to knock his teeth out. Seth tells Reigns to calm down saying the feeling is mutual. He says whilst they hate each other it makes sense for them to both work as a team and say yes to this challenge to send a message to the rest of the roster not to mess with them whilst Rollins proves right in front of Reigns why he is the man. Reigns agrees but threatens to end Seth in the back if he pulls any kind of betrayal on him at Summerslam.

    August 8th 2016

    Spoiler:

    On the next week of Raw Chris Jericho greets everyone to Monday Night Raw before announcing that tonight will be a special highlight reel.He mentions his feud with Cesaro before bringing out Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins. The first question is the triple threat from battleground with Reigns saying he is happy for Ambrose and thinks he makes a great champion and will beat HHH at Summerslam. Seth meanwhile says he never got pinned and blames Reigns which causes more tension in this team. Jericho turns it round to Seth asking how it feels for him to have his daddy clean up his mess and what happens if HHH brings the title back to Raw. However before Seth can answer Cesaro interrupts the highlight reel. Cesaro talks some trash about Jericho using his mouth all the time when Foley comes out making a tag match to see if Reigns and Rollins can coexist. They do however Jericho leaves Cesaro high and dry allowing the former Shield team to win.

    Meanwhile elsewhere in the show Cody Rhodes beats Big Show clean with a cross rhodes picking up an impressive win before saying they are here to show why they belong in WWE and will make it to the top like they always should have been.

    August 15th 2016

    Spoiler:

    The next week on Raw Foley starts off raw hyping up contract signing later in the show between Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens he is interrupted by Rhodes Scholars making their way out to the ring. They question where Stephanie is for the night (she is taking the night off with her husband) before saying they want to see her face so they can tell her how they will beat her two top stars 1 2 3 in the middle of the ring. Seth Rollins makes his way out and says he is sick of the Rhodes Scholars acting like they got handed everything on a plate. He says the authority picked him because they knew he was the future and he has proved that by doing what Sandow never could: Cashing in Money in the bank and being successful. Rollins mentions how he will carry his lesser partner to victory like he did in the Shield. Sandow says this is why they will win as they are friends an even if they were not their ego is not too big to put aside so they can work a team.Reigns makes his way out and says he is sick of Rollins and Sandow running their mouths before challenging Sandow or Rhodes to a match right now. Foley calls a ref out and makes Damien Sandow vs Roman Reigns right now.

    Rollins and Rhodes sit down on commentary for the whole match. They bicker back and forth whilst Sandow shows he can hang with Roman Reigns.However towards the end Rollins attacks Rhodes before jumping on the apron to distract Sandow who knocks him off before turning into a spear giving Reigns the win.

    Post-match Cody jumps off the ring apron and hits Reigns with a moonsault before going for Cross Rhodes when Seth runs taking him down before hitting the pedigree as him and Reigns stand all in the ring.


    Women title match: Charlotte © vs Sasha Banks


    July 25th 2016

    Spoiler:

    In the announcement Stephanie makes at the start of Raw first hyping up the fact that the Women's division is now exclusive to Monday night Raw. She then announces due to Sasha making Charlotte tap last night she will be facing Charlotte for her title at Summerslam.

    Sasha Banks and Charlotte cut a promo on each other where they talk about being the top of the Women’s division and that they are the future of this division and company with both women admitting they bring the best out of each other. Charlotte mentions she has been at the top and when it mattered on the big stage she always wins and she will win again. Sasha says that Charlotte ditched her daddy but had to get a servant to get the job done because she can’t do it by herself like the boss can and say the title is coming to her you can bank on it leaving Charlotte in the ring fuming.

    August 1st 2016

    Spoiler:

    Charlotte comes out to address the fact she has to defend her title against the boss saying she has beaten Sasha before and brings up NXT how in NXT she was the first out the BFF's to win the title and how she made NXT great. Bayley at this point makes her way out calling Charlotte someone she used to see as a role model and she uses to love watching her dad but seeing what she did to Ric Flair last week showed her true colours. Bayley then talks about the iron women match that she and Sasha had main evented in NXT something Charlotte has never done no matter how much she claims to have carried the women's division.Sasha comes out after that and mocks Charlotte saying he and Bayley have already beaten the pair of you. Charlotte is the true queen of this revolution and says she can beat them anytime any place. Bayley asks for a match with her right now but Charlotte says you have to prove you are worth a title shot against the queen and says if Bayley win against Dana Brooks she can have a title match. The have a match with Charlotte trying to cost Bayley but Sasha stops her allowing Bayley to pick up the win earning herself a title match in the future. Post-match Charlotte tries to go for a sneak attack but is stopped by Sasha as Bayley finishes Raw standing tall holding Charlotte's women's title in the air.

    August 8th 2016

    Spoiler:

    Bayley faces Charlotte for the women title on this week's Raw and puts on a great showing in a good match. However Dana Brooks takes off one of the turnbuckle pads during the match whilst Charlotte distracts the ref and she uses it throwing Bayley into it head first before hitting natural selection for the 3 count to retain her title.

    Post-match Charlotte and Dana Brooks try to perform a two on one beat down but Sasha banks makes her way out to make the save with her running off Charlotte who escapes with the title in hand.



    August 15th 2016
    Spoiler:


    Sasha Banks and Bayley make their way down to the ring with each other.Sasha starts off by saying that she knows that Charlotte is a Flair meaning she will try every little dirty trick she can think of which is why she has Bayley here with her as they have an announcement to make. Bayley says she will be at ringside to make sure Charlotte does not interfere in their match and make sure that Sasha gets the chance to prove she is the real BOSS of the women’s division. At this point Charlotte and Dana Brooks makes her way out to the ring. They say it does not matter how many little fan girls you have at ringside, I will still be the face of the women division after Summerslam and beyond. Dana then says that she wants Sasha one on one after she laid her hands on her last week and she will make sure that she does not even make it to Summerslam. Sasha says yes to the match as Bayley and Charlotte watch from ringside.

    Decent match between the two with Bayley playing cheerleader as is Charlotte.However, towards the end when she has the bank statement locked in whilst Charlotte attacks Bayley throwing her into the post, Charlotte jumps onto the apron with Sasha charging at Charlotte knocking her off before getting rolled up by Dana brooks who pulls the tights to pick up the shock win on Sasha banks.

    Post-match Sasha goes for Dana Brooks attacking her but Charlotte runs to attack her from behind but Bayley stop her knocking her down as Sasha gets ready to attack her when Dana drags Charlotte away as Bayley and Sasha stare down the Women’s champ and Dana Brooks.


    WWE tag team titles match: New Day © vs The Club

    July 25th 2016

    Spoiler:

    New day make their way out to the ring where they celebrate their title reign and how long they have been WWE champions. After a bit of joking and a video package Enzo and Big Cass make their way down to the ring saying well done before doing the names bit of things that have gone on too long before challenging the New Day to a match. New Day say hell yea baby but another team makes their way down to the ring. The Club make their way down to the ringside area where they say they need a new hobby now they can't #beatupjohncena. They say they want the tag team title belts so they can carry on the takeover of the WWE by the Club. The situation kicks off with all 3 teams brawling but the New Day stand tall until the Mercenaries (Wade Barrett and a debuting Nick Aldis) make their way into the ring taking down New Day before grabbing the title belts and holding them in the air sending a message to the WWE tag team champions.

    August 1st 2016

    Spoiler:

    New Day come down to the ring and start off with making jokes about Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn with them doing a mock-up of the Stepbrothers with their heads photo-shopped onto the head instead. They afterwards move onto the attack last week by the mercenaries and the Club calling them to come down to the ring right now to explain their actions. Instead however the Primetime players come out with Bob Buckland after reforming last week. Buckland says they will make the primetime players great again and want to challenge for the tag team titles. However the Mercenaries make their way out to the ring and say this is why they were needed back. He says this is why they were offered some much money to come back where they belong. The champions are a bunch of jokers and the tag division is so bad these jokers have held onto these belts for a full year. Barrett reminds the New Day that he beat with a team who could barely hold themselves together so with the man next to him being on the same page there is no stopping them from taking the titles from the new day. Nick Aldis said him and Barrett have the same ideals knowing how key it is to make as much money as possible. However at this point the Club make their way out to the ring. The Club mention the fact that last week the Mercenaries jumped them and they talk about how they thrived in Japan and came here to conquer whilst Barrett had to sneak away from the company to find a new friend just to have a chance at some success. Nick gets in Gallows face and warns him to not run his mouth any more. Anderson says or what when Enzo and Cass make their way down to the ring as well. They make jokes about of the teams that are stood in the ring before saying they are all soft when Mick Foley makes his way out. He makes a fatal 4 way match between the teams out here right now next week with the winners facing the winners of New Day's title match next week.

    August 8th 2016

    Spoiler:

    New Day start the show by mocking Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn about the prospect of having to team up and saying they will show them why they have held the titles for nearly a whole year. They mock both men for the fact they are a unit whilst they are two people obsessed with fighting each other and don't stand a chance.

    Later on in the show the fatal 4 way takes places and in the chaos during the match towards the end Big Cass when doing the Empire elbow Nick Aldis rolls out of the way but not quick enough causing the whole of Big cass weight to come down on his hand causing him to pick up an injury. He manages to get Cass away tagging in Barrett before getting help from doctors at ringside. Meanwhile in the actual match it ends in the usual chaos before the Magic killer is hit on Titus O'Neil as him and Karl Anderson end up as the legal men and The club become number one contender's for the tag team titles.

    Meanwhile in the main event New Day pick up the win after miscommunication between Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn leads to him accidentally dropkicking Owens before turning into a trouble in paradise from Kofi Kingston.


    August 15th 2016

    Spoiler:

    On the go home show for Raw there is a little bit of build up to the match at Summerslam with the Club being shown watching Finn Balor's match on the monitors backstage before talking about how sweet it will be to win the tag team titles from the New Day.

    Last standing match: Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn


    July 25th 2016

    Spoiler:

    Sami Zayn gets interviewed backstage about beating Kevin Owens last night.He says he is glad to have finally beaten Kevin Owens once and for all allowing him to move on with bettering his career.

    He faces Heath Slater who has been given this match by Mick Foley after asking for a match on Raw to prove why he should have been drafted higher. Zayn controls most of the match when Owens comes out with a microphone distracting Zayn and saying he got lucky saying this rivalry between them will be over when he says it is over distracting Zayn and allowing Heath Slater to roll Zayn up to pick up the shock win.


    Post-match Owens runs in the ring and powerbombs Zayn before grabbing Slater who is doing air guitar to celebrate his win and hits him with a powerbomb before rolling out of the ring and wailing onto Owens smashing him with a chair over and over and over until security comedown taking him away from Zayn before he can do any more damage.

    August 1st 2016
    Spoiler:


    Heath Slater makes his way down to the ring with a microphone and talks about how he earned an amazing win last over Sami Zayn before being attacked by Kevin Owens. He tells Owens to come down here so he can beat him up. Owens makes his way down to the ring and says he could not let Zayn pick up a fluke win over him and think he was the best so he had to send a message by laying him and this Elvis Presley wannabe off and will destroy Slater again for fun. They have a decent match but in the end Sami Zayn comes out to distract Owens and Slater picks up another shock win!

    They start to brawl in the ring with referees trying to stop Zayn and Owens until Stephanie comes out and tells them to both stop this right now. They carry on and she says to stop or they will be fired.They eventually stop fighting with Stephanie saying she will force them to co-exist and next week they will fight the New Day for the tag team titles. If they fail to win or refuse to team together there will be dire consequences for both men.

    August 8th 2016

    Spoiler:

    Kevin Owens start Raw by saying that Sami Zayn is beneath him and whilst they were a team in the past long before making it to the top Sami is not good enough to be Owens partner as he is not going to carry Zayn on his back to success. Zayn comes out and calls Owens jealous of the fact that Zayn got here first, that Zayn won the NXT title first and that Owens did not get here at the same time. He says Owens cannot stand the fact that Zayn is just better then he is. Owens gets in Zayn's face at this point and Zayn asks do you want to keep fighting and stunting each others careers or do you want to actually achieve something in WWE? Owens make a comment to Zayn that they are destined to do this forever. Zayn tells Owens they don't even have to like each other just work together and they will get to dethrone a tag team that have held onto the belts for over a year. New Day make their way out before Owens can reply and start to sing why can't we be friends to mock the pairing. Owens says he could beat these 3 men by himself and does not even need Sami as the two teams go back and forth with the segment ending with Owens telling the New Day that those titles are coming to him and Zayn tonight.

    New Day put on a great match with Owens and Zayn but in the end the lack of teamwork and a mistake from Zayn hitting Owens in the head allows the new day to retain. Owens post-match screams at Zayn calling him a goddamn screw up beating him down. They fight in the ring with Stephanie coming down telling them to stop screaming before they accidentally knock her over. She finally snaps declaring if you two cannot co-exist that bad at Summerslam there will be a last man standing match with the loser leaving Raw.

    August 15th 2016

    Spoiler:

    Mick Foley makes his way down to the ring for the contract signing for this big match where he puts over both men mentioning their strengths and how much of a loss for Raw either man would be but they need to for the sake of the roster and the two men before they destroy each others careers. As he is about to bring them out Daniel Bryan makes his way down to the ring. Foley questions Bryan's presence here but he says if HHH can invade his show then he sees no problem coming to Raw for business that affects Smackdown as well. He says as Foley said both men are special talents and the fact that Raw is willing to let one go means Smackdown get to add a great wrestler to their roster who may even be able to compete for the WWE title when Ambrose wins at Summerslam.

    Kevin Owens comes out to stop this argument and says he is doing Foley a favour by ridding the Raw roster of a loser like Sami Zayn and mocks Bryan telling him that when him signs Zayn he will be signing a loser who is too soft to do what is needed to win and only does it when facing me due to the fact he is jealous he will never be on my level.He says this will be a war and he will end Zayn's career for good. He tells Bryan that made they can hire Zayn as a desk clerk or a janitor instead of being a wrestler. Zayn at this point comes out and tells Owens that he has proven twice now he is on Owens level and he will beat him again just like he beat him at battleground. He tells Owens he is jealous of him however Owens stuns Zayn screams you are damn right. Owens rants off saying how easy Zayn has had it and the fact that he has to look after his family and make sure he can provide for them whilst Zayn can just focus on himself. Zayn says Owens is right as he can cause whatever damage he needs to onto Owens and himself to win this match but Owens does not have the same luxury. Zayn tells Owens if he gets injured he has to look after himself where as if Owens get injured his family will pick up the pieces. Owens goes ape-shit at this point as both men start to brawl and even security are struggling to stop them as these two men want to kill each other as they start to attack security just to get to each other before a bunch of lower card wrestlers from Raw and NXT have to get called out to help drag these two away and with some minor struggle succeed in stopping these two from killing each other before they even get to Summerslam.

    Re: WWE: A different future

    Well, it’s safe to say the return of Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow is an unexpected one, but it’s one I LOVE. The idea of these guys randomly showing up and attacking Reigns and Rollins is just huge. Whilst the remaining weeks were pretty generic in terms of build up, Rhodes and Sandow basically shooting on the microphone was pretty great. I’m actually really interested to see who picks up the win when these teams go at it.

    The Charlotte/Sasha/Bailey triangle is obviously still going IRL, so there was nothing over exciting. It all seemed to go the way logic suggests it would. No real other comments to make.

    The Club had the potential to be awesome and really run the tag division, and whilst they are now tag champs IRL, I can’t help but feel like WWE dropped the ball a little. The constant losses to New Day really took its toll before they finally win. I’d love to see them get up in this one. On another note, with Barrett and Aldis returning, you have some really solid tag teams on Raw. I’m looking forward to what can possible happen with a pretty promising looking division, nice work.

    Not much to comment on throughout the Rusev/Benjamin build. Pretty generic stuff with Benjamin making a return and picking up a few wins. The match itself at Summerslam should be a pretty good one though. If there’s one issue I have right now with your booking, it’s that you have SO MANY returns happening all at once. It really takes the heat away from the ones that aren’t as important. For example, I couldn’t care less about Benjamin and Barrett because Rhodes and Sandow are the big news right now. Potentially space out wrestler returns a little better in the future.

    Owens/Zayn just needs to end. It has been done to death. It’s not your fault, but the WWE just go back to this far too often. From a booking standpoint, to prevent this from happening you’ve got the loser leaving Raw. I think that’s a brilliant idea really, well done. The only issue I had with the booking here is I still have no idea why Stephanie booked these two to team up against The New Day. Also, the way Zayn tried to convince Owens to team up didn’t fit either. The concept and consequences for this match are great, however the execution could have been a little better at times.

    Cesaro/Jericho is a match that again has a hell of a lot of potential. The feud seems pretty rushed so it’s not as epic as it could be, unless this is the first in a series of matches. Still solid enough work, except now Jericho and Cesaro were forced to team together. It seems you go for the Strange Bedfellows tag team match a little too often. I’d probably recommend reading some other BTB’s on the forum to see different ways of building/extending feuds.

    Barrett/Cass makes sense based off of the injury Aldis got. It’s a little weird that you had Aldis show up only for this to happen, unless of course this injury is EWR’s doing? Despite the monthly recaps, are you still using it? Either way, there’s a little bit of heat here which makes this a perfect pre show match. I will just mention that Barrett, upon his return, only making a pre show PPV match is pretty bad for him. Probably links to my point earlier about to many returns at once, but it’s going to be hard to take him seriously if you push him to hard after he’s starting this far down.

    Finn/Del Rio is surprising to be on the pre show, considering I’m assuming you’ll be pushing Balor and Del Rio is a former champion. The feud seems pretty basic, with the jealous veteran unhappy at being drafted later than the youngster. Standard, booking 101 feud, no problems at all.

    Following the trend of WWE at the moment, I’m glad you don’t just have one women’s feud happening at a time. Paige/Nia Jax and Bliss/Becky are both really interesting. On a personal preference note, I probably would have preferred you to go something different as opposed to Bliss/Becky as it’s still somewhat going IRL.

    Not really sure why Cedric would be wearing a mask to face Braun??? Just felt like he could have picked up the win without a mask, as he would be a massive underdog against Braun anyway. You’ve started to build up Strowman well though, so I’m intrigued to see how you continue that, especially now that he’s lost a match so early.

    The card for Summerslam from a Raw point of view looks fantastic. Every match has the potential to be great. I liked some of the booking decisions made in the lead up, and then disliked a few as well. I’m definitely interested to see what you do moving forward though, good luck, I’ll be reading.

    Finn/Del Rio is surprising to be on the pre show, considering I’m assuming you’ll be pushing Balor and Del Rio is a former champion. The feud seems pretty basic, with the jealous veteran unhappy at being drafted later than the youngster. Standard, booking 101 feud, no problems at all.

    Following the trend of WWE at the moment, I’m glad you don’t just have one women’s feud happening at a time. Paige/Nia Jax and Bliss/Becky are both really interesting. On a personal preference note, I probably would have preferred you to go something different as opposed to Bliss/Becky as it’s still somewhat going IRL.

    Not really sure why Cedric would be wearing a mask to face Braun??? Just felt like he could have picked up the win without a mask, as he would be a massive underdog against Braun anyway. You’ve started to build up Strowman well though, so I’m intrigued to see how you continue that, especially now that he’s lost a match so early.

    The card for Summerslam from a Raw point of view looks fantastic. Every match has the potential to be great. I liked some of the booking decisions made in the lead up, and then disliked a few as well. I’m definitely interested to see what you do moving forward though, good luck, I’ll be reading.
    Agreed on the Club in real life and as much as I love the New Day I felt the Club really got screwed over by the New Day only keeping the titles so long to break the record. Thanks for the advice on the returns as I wanted to make the roster a bit stronger on Raw but maybe should have been more gradual with the amount of people who came back.

    Basically Stephanie knew how great these two men are and wanted to force them to co-exist as their feud had started to get out of control so by having them become tag team champions they would have to get along. However once they fought post-match she realised that one had to leave Raw (which should have happened in real life) I agree that maybe doing the build up a little slower would have been better or making it a little more clear.

    Thanks for the advice on that. I ended up with too many strange bedfellow matches leading up to Summerslam.

    Match was originally going to be on the main show but the EWR injury made me put it down to the pre-show plus I felt i had too many matches on the main card originally. Same reason Balor vs Del Rio ended up on the pre-show.

    I always wanted someone to debut in a jobber mask and beat someone like Strowman. Cedric wearing the mask was more for the surprise it was him and a different way to debut him. I do have plans for Strowman as loving him real life atm.

    Thank you for the feedback and I will look into other threads as well to see better ways to build feuds

    Smackdown build-up to Summerslam


    WWE title No Holds Barred match: Dean Ambrose © vs HHH


    July 26th 2016

    Spoiler:

    Similar to Raw Bryan and Shane come out to the ring to make a number of announcements about what shall happen in the coming weeks on their show. They start off announcing the return of time limits to matches on Smackdown and also that starting tonight there will be a tag team titles tournament finishing at Summerslam to crown new tag team champions. They then call Dean Ambrose the WWE champion to the ring and start to talk about who they plan to have Dean face at Summerslam for the WWE title.

    However as they are talking HHH makes his way out to the ring and has a mic in his hand telling Shane he still has his rematch for the WWE title which he never got as well as reminding Ambrose he has beaten him already for that title and he will take that title back for the authority where it belongs. HHH says that someone like Dean Ambrose is not worthy of having the title and if Rollins is not up to the job of taking the title back where it belongs then he will have to do it himself. Ambrose smirks however telling HHH he is sick of people looking at him as if he is not good enough as he knows he is the best in the business today and that is why he is WWE champion before telling the king of kings not only will he prove that he is the kingpin of WWE but he will make HHH feel a portion of the pain him and Reigns felt when they got Rollins to turn on them. Ambrose then tells HHH more importantly before clocking him the face with the belt before hitting dirty deeds on HHH as the segment ends with Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan standing tall.

    Bryan and Shane after the segment talk about how this is typical of Stephanie and her way to try to undermine Smackdown and sabotage it using any means necessary. Shane says he is going to have a word with Vince to see what he can do back to Stephanie and what they can get as a form of payback as well for her actions. He then tells Bryan to have fun on Miz TV later.

    As the show is coming to close Ambrose is heading home when he is attacked in the car park by HHH who beats him down and then throws him into a car door smashing his head into it before telling him that he will see him at Summerslam holding the WWE title in the air.


    August 2nd 2016

    Spoiler:

    Dean Ambrose makes his way out to the ring and demands that HHH comes out after his sneak attack the other week. He demands he brings his cowardly ass down to the ring so he can show HHH who the true king in the WWE. However HHH does not come out right away with Ambrose shouting that do you need ask Stephanie's permission calling HHH a little bitch. HHH comes out at this point in his leather jacket attire and mocks Ambrose telling him he has always been the weakest link in the SHIELD. He says when they were picking who to steal for the authority they only ever thought about Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. They never even gave a second thought about someone like Dean Ambrose. Ambrose smirks telling HHH that everyone knows he is the weaker half of DX and Shawn Michaels was always better then him. HHH at that point threatens to end Ambrose's career and not just take back the title if he ever says that comment ever again. Ambrose says he knows how much HHH loves to end career so lets battle for this in an environment you think is your domain but is my comfort zone. NO HOLDS BARRED. I have been in wars over the years and he says he looks forward to dethroning the kings of king and showing him why he is the new Kingpin of WWE.

    Shane McMahon is in the ring to end Smackdown as he is talking about how great it is to be able to have his own project before demanding HHH comes out to the ring right now. HHH comes out and says he has already given this second rate show enough of a spotlight so Shane better make this quick. Shane says he is sick of him and his sister having to stick their nose into every little thing. Anytime something does not go your way you have to interfere because you cannot stand not been seen to be doing something. He says you could not stand this show even having a chance to be a success and get one over on your wife. Shane tells HHH that the only reason him and Bryan accepted the match is they know their champion will beat HHH. Shane mentions Roadblock earlier in the year and says Ambrose had you beat. He says to make sure there is no interference from any members of the authority or anyone else anyone who interferes from either brand will be fired per orders of Vince McMahon HHH though smirks and tells Shane that favours him as he will beat Ambrose once again and be the WWE champion as he is the weak link. Shane smirks asking HHH what like you beat Daniel Bryan at WM30. At this point HHH snaps and attacks Shane McMahon until Dean Ambrose runs out and makes the save hitting HHH with a dirty deeds onto the WWE title after a massive brawl.

    August 9th 2016

    Spoiler:

    HHH comes out to ring to talk about how this is a B+ plus show and that it is run by two men who are B+ plus at what he does. This brings out Daniel Bryan the Smackdown GM who rips into HHH for holding people down just because he does not like them. He mentions the MIZ who he hates but will still give chance to prove him wrong whereas HHH will deliberately try to screw them over. He mentions that if he is such a B+ player how come he beat him at Wrestlemania and his two main students at Wrestlemania. HHH tells Bryan that he does not care he is retired or if he has a kid on the way if you keep running your mouth he will put him in the hospital which at this point brings Dean Ambrose out to the ring. Dean Ambrose mocks HHH saying if he wanted to watch a power struggle he would turn on Game of thrones. He mocks HHH for acting like he is so tough and yet has to threaten someone who has been forced to retire. Ambrose then tells HHH not only has he beaten all the other members of the SHIELD he has also beaten all of Evolution and at Summerslam he will make HHH regret trying to take the title from the kingpin of the WWE. HHH tells Ambrose he is crazy if he thinks he will lose to Ambrose and this causes Ambrose to deck HHH starting a brawl around the ring side which ends with HHH hitting Ambrose with a pedigree on the ramp.

    August 16th 2016

    Spoiler:

    HHH talks about how he got under Ambrose's skin last week and to be at the top you need to be mentally stable and have full control of your emotions before he talks about how he is always in control and when he faces Ambrose he will take him apart and his craziness will comeback to bite him. HHH says the wrestlers today can only hope of getting on his level. As he is about to carry on however Neville comes interrupting HHH. HHH seems very confused and asks why Neville is out here. Neville mentions how great HHH has been for his career and how he has rebuilt NXT to what it is today. Neville questions his comments but HHH says the only hope he has for the future to get to his level is people like Neville but he is not on HHH's level yet. Neville challenges HHH to a match with he accepts for the main event tonight.

    Dean Ambrose comes out to watch the main event putting over both men's skill and saying that as good as they are he is better whilst talking about how HHH acts like he is the king around here but soon he will be dethroned. Neville puts on a great performance and gets a good number of near falls but he misses the red arrow before getting hit with a pedigree for the 3 count. Neville shakes HHH's hand post-match before leaving the ring as Ambrose slides in and holds up his WWE title as both men stare each other down to end Smackdown.

They say that the original unstoppable unit has been reborn with Harper back and although Braun has gone to pastures new Bray's original family will take over. Bray is about to carry on when Dolph Ziggler makes his way out to the ring interrupting Bray Wyatt. Dolph Ziggler talks about how far he has fallen in the WWE and how just a few years ago teaming with Rowan there he had the biggest moment of his career. However since then he has fallen and has been nowhere near the top like he belongs. He says he has failed to hit the targets for his career he set himself calling his world title reigns too short for someone who holds himself to high standard. Ziggler says to get to the top he needs to steal the show and take down a monster. He says beating Bray would prove he is worthy of a WWE title shot and get him back to where he belongs. Bray starts to laugh at Ziggler saying that Ziggler is not worthy of a match with the eater of worlds and tell Ziggler is he wants Bray's help he can join the Wyatt Family and he can fix the failure of a career that Dolph Ziggler has had. Ziggler tells Bray he would never join that cult of weirdos and that he is not leaving this ring till he gets Bray to agree to the match at Summerslam before super-kicking him in the face. However Harper and Rowan beat down Ziggler for a bit and after Bray has recovered he lays Ziggler out with Sister Abigail.

Dolph Ziggler says that provoking Bray may be seen as a dumb idea but so was him trying to destroy the authority. He says he needed to prove that he was worth Wyatt's time. He is sick of feeling like his career feeling like a joke and helping American Alpha defeat the Wyatt Family will prove to himself that this brand spilt is the start of a new beginning for him.

Bray laughs in the ring at how divided they are and how they shall all fall divided. Gable tells Bray if he thinks that is funny he challenges any member of the Wyatts to a match next week. Jordan meanwhile tells Ziggler he can face him next week to work out any kinks and show him why he was not needed in their match two weeks ago. Ziggler agrees telling Jordan he will try not to show him up too much.

They are battling on the stage and the ramp area for most of the match with most of the start of this match taking part outside of the ring.After going for about 10 minutes the match start to take a much slower pace with Kevin Owens Irish whipping Zayn into the steel steps. This ends up getting a 7 count as Zayn is able to get back to his feet.

    Owens stalks Zayn as he gets to his feet taunting him before rolling him back into the ring as the match enters the ring for the first time in this contest. Owens throws Zayn into the corner before hitting him with a cannonball in the corner.The ref starts the count however Owens knows that will not be enough so heads to the outside and looks for a weapon on the outside. He finds a tables and sets it up on the outside before getting another two and setting them up almost like a triangle out of the ring. He then grabs a chair from ringside and slides into the ring. He swings the chair and hits Zayn in the back 3 times taunting him telling him to get him up. He then goes for it again but Zayn rolls out of the way ducking before hitting the chair into Owens's face with a dropkick. Owens is staggered but this before Zayn hits him with a blue thunder bomb onto the chair. Zayn lets go as the ref starts his count as Zayn sells the pain he has suffered in the corner. Owens however recovers from this at the count of 7 as he gets up however as he leans in the corner Zayn charges at him hitting him with a Helluva kick to the face however just like at Battleground he sets up Owens again and goes for another Helluva kick but as he goes for it Owens dodges countering and hits him with a pop-up powerbomb!

    Both men are down with Owens still suffering from the Helluva kick he had suffered meaning he is unable to rise until the 6 count however Zayn gets up at the 8 count. Owens cannot however believe this and runs over to Zayn attacking him hitting him with fist after fist. He then picks up Zayn for another pop-up powerbomb but Zayn counters with a DDT to the ring mat. Owens lays on the ground recovering whilst Zayn gets onto the top rope.However Owens starts to recover and they start to battle on the top rope. Owens looks like he may hit Zayn with a Superplex however Zayn counters it climbing to the second turnbuckle and sets him up for a Super Brainbustaaaahhh!!!!! He jumps off the and drops Owen's head straight onto the turnbuckle. Crowd lets out a holy shit chant as Zayn shows the desperate lengths he will go to beat Owens busting out moves from his El Generico days. Owens looks down for the count but he slowly gets back to his feet and makes the 9 count. Zayn looks in shock but knows he has to do more to take him down. He charges at Owens but counters his charge hitting him with a superkick to the face. He then drags Zayn out of the ring and takes him towards the ring apron. He sets up Zayn for the pop-up powerbomb to the apron with it being hyped up how many people this has taken out. Zayn tries to fight him off but Owens drops him onto the ring apron leaving down for the count. Owens slowly get up and gets ready to bask in the glory of his win as the ref starts to count. He is soaking it in as the ref gets to 7 when Zayn seems to be stirring. Owens hears the cheers as he sees Zayn start to rise back to his feet as he uses the apron to hold himself up and beats the 9 count. However once he has beaten the ref's count he falls back the outside floor. Owens is fuming and goes over to Zayn and picks him up before looking at the tables he has set up. He has an evil smirk before rolling Zayn back into the ring. He grabs Zayn before hitting him with a german spulex once he gets back into the ring leaving him laying in the ring before he climbs the ropes before hitting him with bullfrog splash from the top. The ref starts his count as Owens is shouting abuse at Zayn as he lays there. However at the 8 count Zayn gets up again and Owens hits him with punch after punch after punch to the face losing it screaming at him why will you not stay down.

    He then drags him over to the corner before taking him onto the top rope. He then sets up Zayn for a powerbomb off the top rope. He gets ready to hit him saying “goodbye old friend” mocking Zayn however as he goes for the powerbomb Zayn counters him with a Sunset flip powerbomb himself sending them crashing through the tables together.

    WWE title No Holds Barred match: Dean Ambrose © vs HHH

    This match is a brutal psychological affair with both men going full on trying to take each other on. Both men try to inflict a lot of pain onto each other without weapons to start with HHH taking a lot more cerebral approach to the match whilst Ambrose is acting a lot more frantic and manic in his actions here whilst still seemingly having a plan for each of his actions.The first weapon brought into the match is by Dean Ambrose who climbs into the ring with a kendo stick before beating HHH with it. Both men at this point start to go through all of their signature moves as well as using the outside of the ring to their advantage in this match.

    Neither men hit a finisher on each other till throughout the match as we come to the closing sequence.However in the ring both men are fighting when HHH gets Ambrose and hits with a pedigree after countering the “wacky line”. He goes for the cover but is only able to get a 2 count as Ambrose is able to kick out of the pedigree. HHH at this point looks frustrated but keeps his head as he heads out of the ring and goes looking for his most trusted weapon over the years: his sledgehammer.

    He slides back into the ring and starts to eye up Amrbose taunting him and getting ready to strike with the sledgehammer. However as he goes to swing it Ambrose is able to dodge and counters HHH before hitting with a dirty deeds to the mat.However due to exhaustion Ambrose does not cover HHH straight away and instead lays down on the mat before going to cover HHH. However HHH kicks out of the dirty deeds so Ambrose knows more need to be done and he slides out of the ring looking for a weapon to finish off HHH here.

    Ambrose is searching under the ring for the weapon that will finish this off. He keeps looking under the ring before finally settling on one weapon of choice and has a sinister smirk on his face as he has found his tool of choice. He grabs out the weapon which is a baseball bat covered in barbed wire. He gets back into the ring as HHH is struggling to his feet and he is clutching his sledgehammer as both men stand across from each other. HHH swings for Ambrose first knowing the damage Ambrose can do with the barbed wire bat but Ambrose again scouts it and dodges the shot before hitting HHH with the barbed wire bat to the back! HHH doubles over in pain as you can see blood coming out of his back. Ambrose stands over him and he shouts “THIS IS FOR THE SHIELD”. He hits him again in the back again before shouting “THIS IS FOR MY BROTHA”smashing him one last time in the back. He then waits as HHH stand to his feet before hitting him with dirty deeds one more time. He then covers him and picks up the 3 count for the win!

    Winner and still WWE champion: Dean Ambrose (23:19)

    Re: WWE: A different future




    August 22nd

    Raw starts off with highlights of last night's show with all of the key moments playing before Raw starts off with Stephanie McMahon making her way down to the ring:


    Stephanie makes her way to the ring. She talks about how last night her husband lost to a crazy person. She calls Ambrose lucky and then laments Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins for failing Raw forcing her husband to rush back from business to try to cover their mistakes and failures. She says however failure presents opportunity. She then allows Foley to talk where he talks about the fact that Raw and the fans deserve a champion before taking a sheet off of the podium revealing the old World Heavyweight title. He then says that starting tonight there will be 16 qualifying matches with the winners taking part in a 16 man tournament at Backlash with the winner becoming World champion. As they are about to carry on Seth Rollins makes his way down to the ring. He asks if he has a qualifying match and Stephanie questions why they should give it to him since he has failed time and time again since coming back letting down the Authority. Rollins fires back telling Stephanie he wants Roman Reigns and will beat him unlike HHH did. Stephanie looks like she is about the flip out when Mick Foley gets in the way of the two saying he will face the US champion Rusev in the main event with the winner earning a spot in the tournament defusing the argument between the pair. Rollins thanks Foley before telling Stephanie she will show her why HHH picked him to be the future of this company. Rollins heads to the back as Foley and Stephanie stay in the ring.

    Foley then says he wants to focus on the future and he announces one qualifying match for Backlash will take place next and will be a battle royal with the winner earning themselves a spot on the Raw roster and into the tournament. Samoa Joe, Bobby Roode, Austin Aries, Tye Dillinger and the Revival entrances play as they make their way to the ring before going to an ad break showing some of the top stars from NXT. It is noted that Shinsuke Nakamura is not here taking part in this match.


    Match 1: NXT 15 man Battle royal for spot in World title tournament


    (Austin Aries, No Way Jose, Bobby Roode, Andrade Almas, Dash Wilder, Scott Dawson, Samoa Joe, Tye Dillinger, Wesley Blake, Nick Miller, Shane Thorne, Buddy Murphy, Angelo Dawkins, Steve Cutler and Kenneth Crawford)

    Some of these names are familiar to the audience with the commentary team hyping up these men as the future of the WWE. First 5 men out of the match are Steve Culter, Kenneth Crawford, Angelo Dawkins (all 3 eliminated by Samoa Joe), Wesley Blake and Buddy Murphy (both by Tye Dillinger)

    Next two eliminations were the NXT tag team champions as they were shockingly eliminated by TM-61 members Nick Miller and Shane Thorne who would surprise them from behind. The Revival would as revenge get on the apron to distract TM-61 who then get eliminated by Samoa Joe taking advantage of the distraction. After this elimination the two teams end up fighting on the outside and to the back setting up the NXT tag team titles match at the next takeover. Andrade Almas is the next man out after No Way Jose eliminates him from the match and Andrade on the outside look very angry at this outcome as he makes his way to the back.

    Final 5: Austin Aries, No Way Jose, Bobby Roode, Samoa Joe and Tye Dillinger

    The final 5 all stand in the ring before going at it towards the end. Bobby Roode eliminates No Way Jose before crowing how glorious he is mocking the crowd. He is acting as cocky as he normally does but turns round into a dropkick from Tye Dillinger eliminating him from the match. Tye then mimes the number 10 mocking him as we are down to 3 men here as Roode sulks on the outside of the ring. We get a decent mini three-way with all 3 men showing what they can do, giving a teaser of what they can do if they win this battle royal. Austin Aries and Tye Dillinger work together to leave Samoa Joe laying however Aries tries to double cross Tye Dillinger which ends up failing leading to the two men to start to battle it out. They battle near the ropes before Samoa Joe comes from behind and lifts both men up, sending them over the top rope to eliminate both men from the match and earn himself the first spot in the World title tournament.

    Spoiler:

    Winner: Samoa Joe (14:26)

    Raw comes back from the ad break and we cut to a backstage interview where Charlotte is being interviewed backstage where Charly asks her about last night. Charlotte tells Charly she is using her rematch clause tonight and she will get back the title that belongs to her. She is about to carry on when Dana Brooke arrives onto the screen. Dana Brooke tries to say sorry for what had happened but Charlotte is having none of it and blames Dana for all that has happened. She says tonight that she needs to make up for causing her to lose or she will have to find someone new to babysit her.

    Match 2: Sami Zayn vs Heath Slater

    Heath Slater starts this match off with a cocky promo saying he already beat Zayn in recent weeks saying that the one man band will win once again and win the World title for his kids. However this match goes Zayn's way is able to control the match with no Kevin Owens to cost him and even though he struggles a little due to the war he went through last night against Kevin Owens there is never really any doubt who is going to win this match. Towards the end Slater looks like he may pick up the win but Zayn is able to counter his smash hit finisher before sending him into the corner and hits him with hulleva kick for the 3 count.

    Spoiler:

    Winner via pinfall: Sami Zayn (7:32)

    Raw goes to an ad break and when we come back we here Finn Balor's music play as him and the Club make their way out to the ring. He smirks before mocking the crowd. They start to make fun of the New Day before they boast about how they took over Japan and now they will take over the WWE. Finn talks about proving himself to the top face in NXT starting his reign over the WWE there and now he will become the rock and rolla of Monday night Raw and win the World title at Backlash.

    They are about to carry on when the New Day make their way out to the ring and they do not look happy for once. New Day talk about how last night their year long reign was ruined by WHO WHO WHO. They say because of Finn Balor. They mention Finn's involvement in the match and carrying them to victory like they have to carry him to the ring like his own personal chauffeurs. They call Gallows and Anderson cowards needing to hide behind a man half their size to have any chance of beating the New Day but they will get their titles back. They tell The Club that they will use their rematch clause after Backlash as one of the New Day will be World champion. They say they are being nice giving the CLub a few weeks to enjoy their title reign. Finn mocks them saying they have been here for years and have never come close to being as much of a success as he was in Japan and NXT mocking their time in WWE. New Day tell the club they have been told what their matches for the tournament saying that their boy Xaiver will be facing Finn Balor right now and will show him what they can do ending his tournament run before it can begin. Kofi then tells Finn that all members of the respective groups are banned from ringside but Balor smirks saying the Club are just as strong as a group as they are on their own and the Club will take over the World title tournament.

    Match 3: Xaiver Woods vs Finn Balor

    This ends up being a very good match with Woods trying his best to hang with someone as good as Finn Balor and prove that the New Day individually have some credibility and could potentially become World champions. However towards the end as he is going for lost in the Woods, Finn Balor is able dodge before hitting Woods with 1916. He then hits Woods with the coup d'grace for the 3 count and becomes the third man into the World title tournament.
    Spoiler:

    Winner via pinfall: Finn Balor (12:43)

    We cut to the backstage area where we see Nia Jax and Paige brawling with each other as they are fighting backstage until security has to come onto the scene to stop these two women from fighting each other. We go to another ad break next before hyping up the in-ring return of Kurt Angle next.

    Match 4: Kurt Angle vs Bo Dallas

    This match starts with Bo Dallas saying that Angle is an old man after Angle has made his entrance but if he Boleives maybe he can achieve great things again and earn a World title shot once Bo Dallas wins. Angle smirks and then punches Bo Dallas straight in the mouth starting the match off. Angle is in control for the rest of the match before locking in the ankle lock on Bo Dallas to get the quick easy win.
    Spoiler:


    Winner via submission: Kurt Angle (3:12)

    Kurt Angle asks for a microphone looking like he has something to say as the crowd showers him with YOU SUCK chants when Rusev runs out from the crowd and attacks Angle. He hits him with the US title before locking him in the accolade! As he is locking it in however Shelton Benjamin makes his way out to make the save chasing Rusev off from attacking Angle as Rusev retreats holding up his US title saying he is true American hero.

    Backstage we have a segment where Becky Lynch is working out in the gym area when Alexa Bliss walks into the gym room. Becky looks at Bliss and asks what does she want. She tells Becky that next week they both have a chance to be number one contender and she came to wish Becky luck. She fakes a handshake before throwing her into a locker saying poor naive Becky. She then says only one of us has a chance, walking off as Becky is in pain from the cheap shot by Bliss.

    Match 5: Big E vs Luke Gallows

    This turns into a battle between two big men as they beat the hell out of each other both showing what they can do in this match with Big E picking up the win in this match hitting the big ending onto Gallows.
    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Big E (11:43)

    However post-match Big E does not seem done and to taunt Gallows pours booty O's onto Luke Gallows who looks very angry post match as the New Day make it 1-1 in battles between the two teams tonight whilst Gallows rages in the ring after being covered in booty O's.

    Rhodes Scholars are backstage in armchair with a couple of cigars and books surrounding them. They talk about how last night they beat two of the top stars on Monday night Raw and they showed everyone why they are the best. Rhodes says they proved they would work better as a team and next week they will each earn themselves a spot in the world title tournament and they will be the stars who leave the others in the dust. Sandow says that they have always been this close to the top but now one oft hem will finally reach the top of the mountain where they belong and where the fans have always wanted them to reach. Rhodes rips on their past of playing dress up and now they are done messing about and will give the fans what they truly want. Sandow finishes the segment off by saying You're welcome.

    We come back from an ad break and we can see Shelton Benjamin in massive amounts of pain and laying on the floor struggling to stand up. Rusev is standing over him as he says you want to make a fool out of me? He mocks Shelton's gold standard nickname saying you are fools gold. You will never beat me for my US title before leaving Shelton laid out backstage.

    We then cut to a backstage segment with Dana Brooke and Charlotte making their way to the ring when Foley appears stopping the pair. She tells them that as much as Charlotte would enjoy having her student at ringside if she wants Dana Brooke at ringside Dana has to beat Bayley next and Charlotte you will have to watch from here. Charlotte fumes and tells Dana to not screw this up screaming at her as Raw goes to an ad break.

    Match 6: Bayley vs Dana Brooke

    This match is a good as you can really carry Dana Brooke to but in the end Dana Brooke makes a mistake due to the pressure Charlotte puts on her and Bayley hits her with a belly to bayley for the 3 count to win the match.

    Spoiler:

    Winner via pinfall: Bayley (7:20)

    Post-match Charlotte comes out and attacks Dana Brooks laying her out saying you are useless and tells Dana Brooks that you are no longer my assistant and telling her to get out of the queen's ring for good. Raw then goes to an ad break before Sasha Banks makes her entrance for their title match.

    Raw goes to an ad break before we come back to see Roman Reigns who gets asked about what happened last night. He says he teamed with Rollins again which was a mistake just like it was in the past trusting someone like him. He is sick of mistakes and will win the World title showing this is his brand, his yard and it will be his title because he is not a good guy. He is not a bad guy. He is the guy.

    Re: WWE: A different future



    August 23rd


    Smackdown starts with Miz TV as the Miz and Maryse make their way out to the ring to start off the show. He says at Summerslam he extended the Miz's IC title tour to 141 days once again showing why he is the A-lister before telling us he is making the Intercontinental title matter again and this tour will never stop. He then starts to talk about Daniel Bryan telling the crowd the GM has not been showing him the respect that he deserves as the man who has re-established the IC title. He talks about how what The Miz is doing right now if what Bryan wishes he could have achieved before his body broke down once and for all. He then carries on ripping into Bryan before inviting him onto the show telling him he can come and give the Miz credit for giving him the start of his career in WWE.

    Daniel Bryan tells Miz as much as he hates him he would never deliberately get in the way of a superstar's career like the authority do on Monday Night Raw. He then tells Miz he learned one thing from him and that was how to run his mouth. Bryan tells the Miz he has a proposition for him. Miz talks to Maryse before saying he is willing to listen. Bryan tells Miz that he wants a champion that will defend his title against all comers and will show the world why the IC title is such an important belt within the company. He tells the The Miz if he is able to defeat an opponent of Bryan's choosing for the IC title by pinfall or submission than at Survivor Series he will allow the Miz to get his wish and have the chance to remove Daniel Bryan from Smackdown with both men choosing a 5 men team for an elimination survivor series match which if Miz's team wins Daniel Bryan is no longer GM of Smackdown as it will prove that the Miz has a better eye for talent. Miz tells Bryan he agrees saying he can beat whoever Bryan picks and will soon have removed the biased jealous GM from the position he only got because the fans and the company feel sorry for him. Bryan smirks before wishing the Miz to be careful what he wishes for telling him he is in for a big shock when he learns who he will be facing for his IC title as he leaves Miz in the ring wondering who Daniel Bryan will pick as his opponent for the title.


    We come back from an ad break where we have a pair of video packages for Tony Nese and Jack Gallagher. Tony Nese talks about how he is the premier athlete and no one in the whole smackdown roster let alone the Cruiserweight division can match him in that regard. Meanwhile Jack Gallagher has a video package showing him as a gentleman and putting over his unique charm before he makes his way out to the crowd.

    Match 1: Tony Nese vs Jack Gallagher

    This is a decent showing with Tony Nese showing his in ring skills whilst Jack Gallagher keeps finding ways to get out of the holds he is placed in and finds unique ways to mess with Tony Nese and throw him off his game in this match up. Jack Gallagher wins with his corner dropkick to finish this match making a good start to his debut here on Smackdown.
    Spoiler:

    Winner via pinfall: Jack Gallagher (7:27) 20 mins


    After that we see 3 men gathered in Shane McMahon office with Tyson Kidd, Neville, Hunico all stood there waiting for one more person to arrive into the room with them. Kallisto makes his way into the office and he sees Hunico and looks like he is about to flip out when Shane comes over holding him back saying not in my office. Kallisto calms down for a moment waiting for Shane to speak. He informs all 4 men that they are eligible for the brand new Cruiserweight division coming to Smackdown live. He says next week they will have Hunico vs Neville and Kallisto vs Tyson Kidd with the winners facing each other the week after for a title shot at No Mercy against whoever wins the CWC and becomes the Cruiserweight champion. Kidd acts cocky telling everyone that title shot is as good as his and that is a FACT.

    Match 2: The Usos vs The Vaudevillians

    This is a rematch from a few weeks ago when the Vaudevillians cheated to eliminate the Usos from the tag team tournament. The Usos once again are able to control the match and putting a on great showing why they have been one of the top teams in WWE in recent years. Towards the end of the match The Usos take control however The Vaudevillians try to use the eye poke trick again but to no avail as Jey Uso dodges it before laying out Gotch with a superkick as Jimmy takes down Aiden English on the outside and the Usos picks up the victory here.


    Spoiler:

    Winners via pinfall: The Usos (12:55)


    After an ad break we cut to backstage where we see a fashion shoot set up with Breezedango posing with their new Tag Team title belts. They look super happy and put on a bunch of lovely poses with their new belts before trashing all the other teams mocking their fashion sense and how they look. They call RVD and Kane a pair of old fogeys, American Alpha jocks who think they are pretty, The Wyatts a bunch of dirty forest dwellers, Vaudevillians fashion sense is stuck in 1800's before finishing on the Usos saying the face paint cannot cover up how ugly they truly are. Breeze finishes by saying it is so hard looking so good with Fandango agreeing.

    Match 3: Jack Swagger vs Sheamus

    Decent match between the two men here with both men showing how good they are. The match however ends when Sheamus after taking control after brutalising Swagger's chest on the ropes before heading back towards the other side of the ring waiting for Swagger to stand before hitting him with a Brogue kick and pinning him for the 3 count.

    Spoiler:

    Winner via pinfall: Sheamus (9:15)


    #DIY make their way out to the ring to a decent pop from the crowd as they make their debut on the Smackdown Live roster. #DIY talk about their time in NXT and their rivalry with the Revival before saying when they face the Revival again they will finally get the win over them and prove to the Revival they are the best team. They however say they were at the top of the tag division in NXT and now they are on Smackdown they are coming for the World tag team titles and no team on Smackdown will be able to stop them. As soon as they finish that sentence however the Wyatt Family make their way down to the ring as Erick Rowan and Luke Harper come down to the ring. Harper has a mic and says just one word: “RUN”. They attack #DIY and look to be on top when American Alpha's music hits to a pop from the crowd as they make the save helping #DIY chase off the Wyatts. The Wyatts retreat up the ramp as American Alpha and #DIY stare each other down in the ring as Cimapa mouths to them that they can handle themselves and Jordan saying back yeah sure looks like it.


    Match 4: Lince Dorado vs Primo

    Pre-match segment about Lince Dorado before this match begins talking about himself and how he is proud of what he has done in different countries having wrestled in Japan and Mexico. He says he has come to the WWE to show why he is known as the Golden Lynx.

    Before the match starts Primo has a microphone in his hand and says there is no need for this match. He says you are from Puerto Rico like us and can show these peasants how great Puerto Rico is. Lince Dorado responds by saying he is proud to come from Puerto Rico but will not rub his heritage in people's face. Primo says we tried to get you to listen before punching him in the face starting this match off. Primo controls the start of the match but in the end Lince Dorado takes control and even though Epico tries to knock him off the top turnbuckle he gets a boot to the face from Lince Dorado before Lince Dorado picks up the win with his shooting star press.

    Winner via pinfall: Lince Dorado(8:20)


    Post-match Epico jumps in the ring and they start attacking Dorado 2 on 1 until Apollo Crews runs down to the ring and makes the save stopping the 2 on 1 beatdown from happening to Dorado chasing off the Shining stars.

    We come back from an ad break with RVD and Kane being interviewed backstage by Dasha Fuentes. They are talking about the final at Summerslam when Corbin and Rhyno walk into shot with Corbin saying it is time for the old timers to move out of their way. Corbin makes it clear that they are not a team or even friends and they are together to just further each other's careers. He declares that you guys already lost and it is time for you to get to the back of the line. RVD tells the pair that winning one match against a dysfunctional tag team is not proof of earning a title shot. He says next week RVD and Kane will get a rematch for the tag belts and it will be No DQ. Kane says he will set fire to that stupid selfie stick whilst RVD tells Corbin that he has beaten Rhyno numerous times before and would be happy to do so again as Kane and RVD walk off leaving Corbin and Rhyno fuming.

    We then cut to Renee Young who is backstage with Dolph Ziggler.. Dolph talks about his loss at Summerslam saying he may have lost but he is not done with Bray Wyatt yet. He says tonight he faces Sin Cara or Hunico or whatever he is called and will send a message to Bray why he will face him again. Renee asks him about Bray's offer to help him if he joins the Wyatts but Ziggler says he has no intention joining Bray and just wants to fight him one vs one to prove he still has it.

    After an ad break Dolph Ziggler makes his way out to the ring and climbs into the ring waiting for Hunico when Bray Wyatt appears on the titantron. Bray laughs and says he has heard what Ziggler wants but what he wants is not what he needs. He says if he wants to face Bray he needs to defeat a man at the top before he can prove himself worthy of facing a god. Dolph Ziggler is distracted by this as Hunico has made his way out during this and attacks Ziggler from behind to start this match.

    Match 5: Dolph Ziggler vs Hunico

    Hunico is able to control the match and Ziggler just seems off him game here with Hunico picking up the win with a swanton bomb building up some momentum with a win over a top name even if it one who seems to be going through a mid-career crisis.

    Spoiler:

    Winner via pinfall: Hunico (6:15)


    Dean Ambrose makes his way out to the ring with his WWE title. He is a little worse for wear after his war with HHH two nights ago. He says at Summerslam he defeated the King of Kings and truly cemented his place as the kingpin at the top of Smackdown. He tells the crowd that whoever wants a shot at him next is more then welcome to come and try. At this point AJ Styles makes his way out to the ring to a mixed reaction with it being 60/40 cheers. He tells Ambrose that at Summerslam if anyone proved themselves to be the top name on the roster it was AJ Styles as he proved himself to be the face that runs this place and that it is his era now starting with him making himself the champ who runs the camp. He tells Ambrose that he can face him for the title right now. Ambrose says AJ anytime any place before calling for a ref out from the back. However at this point Kevin Owens music hits to again a mixed reaction though this time it is mostly boos aimed at Kevin Owens. Kevin Owens tells AJ that he has beaten John Cena before and shall do so if he has to face him again scoffing at the fact AJ is using that as a basis for a title shot. He says that he is the one who should be facing Ambrose for his title. Styles fires back informing Owens that unlike him he won his match at Summerslam with Owens threatening to beat Styles worse then he ever beat Zayn saying he has no personally feeling towards Styles so would feel zero regret over it. As they get in each others face as Ambrose is enjoying this when Randy Orton makes his way out to a massive pop from the crowd.

    Styles before Orton can get to the ring mentions the fact Orton failed to win last night as well so do not even bother as he has already got one loser in the ring in front of him. Orton informs AJ that last night he may have lost but he punted the Beast in the skull and put him on the shelf something those two could only dream of doing to someone like Brock Lesnar. He says writing Brock Lesnar off for months is something he feels should entitle him to a title shot. Ambrose chuckles at what is going on before telling all 3 if they want a shot at his title he is happy to beat any of them whether it is little snake, Zayn's stalker or the soccer mum. All 3 of them give him a look before Owens hits Orton with a cheap shot before him and Styles start to battle it out as Ambrose watches from the corner. Styles takes down Owens with a Styles clash but turns around into a dirty deeds from Ambrose. Ambrose leaves the ring holding his title having sent a clear message to all three men he is ready for whoever tries to take his title at No Mercy.

At this point the Club come out to the ring with Balor being carried out on the shoulders of Gallows and Anderson as they come to the ring.

Balor reminds them who they lost their tag belts toand if they face him the World title tournament he will show them exactly why he will be the World champion as his Balor Club take over.

He starts the interview off asking about how it feels to finally be on the main roster in WWE. Joe talks about how WWE knew how great he was and that he was an unstoppable destroyer for years as his work outside of the company proves.

    Cole asks why it has taken him so long to get to the WWE. Joe tells Cole it took so long because the officials in the back were scared of what I could do however HHH has an eye for business and brought me to NXT as he knew that WWE needed to stop living in fear of the destroyer and let me take over. Cole asked how he feels about his chance in World title tournament and Joe says he has yet to ever face anyone who he cannot beat. He says he has beaten people like Angle elsewhere and will do again here in WWE. He says they should be asking about him as he will destroy your heroes and become World Heavyweight champion. Cole thanks Joe for his time and speaking to him.

    We come back from the ad break as Cedric Alexander makes his way down to the ring with a mic in his hand to a nice pop from the crowd.

    Re: WWE: A different future



    August 30th

    We start off the show with a clip replaying what happened last week before announcing the main event of tonight will be a triple threat between AJ Styles, Randy Orton and Kevin Owens to decide the number one contender for the WWE title at No Mercy.

    After this Smackdown truly starts as the Miz is in the ring with the Miz TV set in the ring with his wife Maryse. He welcomes the crowd to the most must-see talk show in WWE and tells the crowd today is day 148 of the IC title world tour. The Miz goes on a rant listening off names Bryan may pick to face him at No Mercy. He says it does not matter if it his friend the demon Kane, the guy dating his wife's sister in law and the man I beat in the main event of Wrestlemania John Cena or even one of the new cruiserweights joining Smackdown I will beat them 1 2 3 and continue making this the most prestigious title on Smackdown Live and will then remove Daniel Bryan from his unjustified position as GM.


    Suddenly the lights go out in the ring. Miz demands to know who turned off the lights demanding they turn them back on right now. He says whoever is playing with the lights turn them back on now. He demands Bryan get control of his show and turn the lights on right now. The lights come back on with the Miz shouting towards the back when standing behind him is THE WYATT FAMILY to a mixed reaction. The Miz and Maryse turn around to see the Wyatts standing in front of them and Miz has a look of pure terror on his face. Bray holding a mic tells Miz to RUN.

    The Miz and Maryse get the hell out of the ring with Miz clinging onto the IC title as him and Maryse stand on the ramp. Bray starts to talk about the power of gold to men saying that belt gives Miz a weak vain man the power to spread his message to the people in attendance and Bray wants more power to show the world the truth. He says that Miz will fall to him and for his own sake needs to follow the buzzards.

    We come back from an ad break and we see The Miz backstage with his wife Maryse clutching his IC title like it is his own child. He is looking each and every way whilst telling Maryse to stay behind him. Bryan comes up behind them and in his best impression of Bray says RUN.This causes Miz to panic and flinch like he has seen a ghost. Bryan mocks Miz saying did I find someone who is too much of a challenge? Miz fires back no saying he found someone is legit insane to face him for his title. Bryan says that Bray is one of the toughest opponents he has ever faced tellling Miz he is going to have to perform at a level he has never performed in his life. Bryan says he wants The Miz to prove him wrong and show he deserves to be champion.

    Match 1: Hunico vs Neville

    Hunico and Neville put on a great match with both men showing what they can do in the ring with Hunico trying all sorts of tricks and different moves to take down Neville. However Neville is able to match Hunico move for move showing why he is one of the best cruiserweights in the world and in the end Neville is able to pick up the win with the red arrow.

    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Neville (9:22)

    Smackdown comes back from an ad break as Sheamus is going through the back with an angry look on his face. As he is walking he bumps into the gentleman Jack Gallagher. Jack Gallagher sticks his hand out to offer him a handshake introducing himself as the new gentleman on Smackdown Live. Sheamus tells him to move now before barging past Jack Gallagher who seems unfazed by Sheamus's rude response as we go to an ad break before Jack Gallagher's match next.

    Match 2: Jack Gallagher vs Drew Gulak

    Jack Gallagher faces off against Drew Gulak here with a short package showing before the match which establishes Drew Gulak as a no-nonsense guy. The match starts of with Jack Gallagher offering Drew a handshake before the match. However Drew hits Jack in the face with a punch which gets boos from the crowd starting off the match with a bang. Drew controls the match early on with a variety of submissions making it tough for Jack to gain any traction in this match. However Jack is able to take control with a few head-butts mid-way through the match. The end of the match comes when Jack hits Drew with an European uppercut getting him into the corner before hitting Drew with his Gentleman's drop-kick for the 3. Post-match Jack Gallagher grabs his umbrella post-match and celebrates on the ramp waving to the crowd.

    Spoiler:


    Winner by pinfall: Jack Gallagher (8:13)

    We cut to the backstage area where Apollo Crews and Lince Dorado are standing backstage. Lince and Apollo tell Renee that the Shining Stars are sore losers who seem to be more obsessed with selling timeshares then trying to win matches. Lince tells us he is proud of where he is from but he sees no need to shove it in everyone else's face.Crews challenges the Shining stars to a tag match on Main Event this week.

    Match 3: Tyson Kidd vs Kallisto

    This ends up being the match of the night with both Tyson Kidd and Kallisto pulling out all of the stops to put on a great match here. Kidd does not do many cheap tricks but acts very cocky throughout the match which Kallisto is able to work to his advantage and is in control of the match until Hunico makes his way out to the ringside area. Kallisto is distracted by this shouting abuse at him allowing Kidd to roll up Kallisto holding the tights and getting the 3 count stealing the win and advancing to next week.

    Spoiler:

    Winner via pinfall: Tyson Kidd (12:36)

    Post-match Tyson Kidd heads to the back happy to have stolen the win here as Hunico enters the ring and attacks Kallisto laying him out before hitting him with a swanton bomb leaving him down and out in the middle of the ring.

    #DIY make their way down to the ring after the ad break to a decent pop from the crowd. They come out and talk about how last week the Wyatts interrupted them stating their claim to be the number one contender's for the World tag team titles so they have come out to repeat their intent. At this point American Alpha make their way out to the ring with Jason Jordan holding a mic in his hand. American Alpha says as much as they respect #DIY as a fellow team who have worked their way up from NXT if any team should be the new number one contender's it is them. Gable makes a comment about saving them last week before Cimapa fires back saying him and his best friend did not need saving.The tension is rising in the ring as the Wyatts make their way out next with out on their own this time.

    Harper cuts a short promo saying that like Bray they understand the power of gold and they want the power of the title before telling the two teams they should run out of their way if they want to survive. As they start to make their way into the ring however Daniel Bryan comes out. He informs all 3 teams that he has already made a number one contender's match for next week's Smackdown with Rhyno and Corbin facing off against the Usos. However as a fan of all 3 teams since this is the land of opportunities at No Mercy all 3 teams will face each other in an elimination triple threat match with the winners progressing to Survivor Series. All 3 teams stare each other down as Smackdown goes to an ad break before the next match.

    Match 4: The Usos vs Shining Stars

    We come back as the Shining stars stand in the ring waiting for the Usos who make their way out as the commentary team talk about Bryan's announcement just before the ad break that the Usos will be facing off against the pairing of Corbin and Rhyno next week to see who faces Breezedango or RVD and Kane at No Mercy. This is a decent match but the result is never in doubt as the Usos pick up the win hitting Primo with the Superfly splash.

    Spoiler:


    Winners via pinfall: The Usos (7:53)

    We cut to backstage where Renee Young is interviewing RVD and Kane before they have their tag team titles rematch with Breezedango. Renee asks him how he feels about Breezedango before calling them a pair of young kids who are more obsessed with how they look rather then winning titles so need to take shortcuts to have a chance of competing with two veterans of the business. Rob Van Dam tells us that with everything legal they can show them all the tricks they have learned over the years and Kane can smash the selfie stick over Breezedango's head. He says unlike self entitled people like Corbin they earned their shot tonight and the fact someone he had respect for in Rhyno aligned themselves with someone like Corbin makes me shake my head. Him and Kane head off to the ring as Smackdown goes to an ad break.

    RVD and Kane make their entrance when suddenly the crowd rain down heat as Corbin and Rhyno make their way out attacking the pair of them.They throw both men around the ring side area with Corbin laying out RVD with an end of days and Rhyno hitting Kane with a gore through the barricade at ringside. After RVD and Kane have been laid out Breezedango make their way out to the ring.


    Match 5: No DQ World Tag team titles match: Breezedango © vs RVD and Kane

    Breezedango as they make their way out sell the fear of Corbin and Rhyno clearly not wanting to face them at No Mercy high tailing it past them as they come out. However once they get into the ring they demand the ref starts the match ASAP with Tyler Breeze hitting RVD with a beauty shot to the face before tagging in Fandango who hits his last dance leg drop and pins RVD for the 3 count to retain.

    Spoiler:


    Winners via pinfall and still World tag team champions: Breezedango (0:27)

    They pose in the ring for a while however Kane starts to rise on the outside and the pair get the hell out of there as Kane goes in the ring to check on his partner after the attack by Corbin and Rhyno as Breezedango looks super happy to have escaped still World tag team champions.

    We come back with a video package talking about John Cena with the package advertising his return to Smackdown next week before we get into our main event for the evening.

    Main event triple threat number one contender's match: Randy Orton vs AJ Styles vs Kevin Owens

    This is a great match between 3 of the best superstars in the WWE today. Ambrose is on commentary and puts over all 3 men as big threats to his title saying Orton is a multiple time WWE champion, Styles has been a champion around the world as well as beating John Cena at Summerslam and Owens is a ruthless monster of a human being who will be driven to prove himself now he lost to Sami Zayn and is on this show. The ending sequence has all 3 men in the ring with Orton hitting both Owens and Styles with the rope hung DDT spot to a pop before setting up for the RKO. He goes to hit a RKO on Styles as he rises but countered by Styles who pele kicks him in the head. Styles then goes to the ropes before hitting his phenomenal forearm to Orton before Owens appears behind him throwing AJ out of the ring and covers Orton for the 3 count stealing the win.

    Spoiler:

    Re: WWE: A different future



    September 1st:


    Spoiler:




    Ryback vs R-Truth
    Spoiler:


    To start off the show we have a very angry Ryback who takes a lot of his recent anger due to his losses on a regular basis out on R-Truth. He beats down R-Truth in a very angry way before hitting the shell-shock on R-Truth for the 3 count.


    Winner via pinfall: Ryback (7:23)


    Dolph Ziggler vs Tony Nese

    Dolph Ziggler takes on Tony Nese in a really good encounter reminding us how good Ziggler is even if he has been on a losing run at the moment. Ziggler picks up the win with a superkick to Nese after a good encounter with the premier athlete.

    Winner via pinfall: Dolph Ziggler (12:38)


    Lince Dorado and Apollo Crews vs The Shining Stars

    Shining stars are able to use the fact that have been a team for years now to their advantage and are able to pick up a win over Apollo Crews and Lince Dorado here in what is a very tough contest for them. In the end however using a roll-up and holding the tights the Shining stars pick up the win by pinning Lince Dorado here.

    Winners via pinfall: Shining Stars (10:13)


    Main event: Bayley vs Carmella

    Bayley put on a great match with Carmella carrying her to a decent match and picking up the win with a Bayley to Belly. Post-match she offers her friend a hug but Carmella says no walking off clearly unhappy about losing this contest here getting a smattering amount of boos as she leaves the ring.


    Winner via pinfall: Bayley (10:43)







    September 5th

    Raw starts off differently than it normally would win all 16 men from the World title tournament standing in the ring. There are clear tensions between some of them as they stand in the ring before Foley and Steph make their way out to the ring. Steph talks about how much she is enjoying the competition on the brand as everyone looks to become the new face of Monday Night Raw and tonight they will do the official World title tournament draw for Backlash. They also hype up the main event of the show tonight with Seth Rollins taking on Samoa Joe.

    She talks about how we have seen people who are new to the company, people who ran NXT with an iron fist and made themselves the kings of that brand, people who have been here in the past and won World title before as well as Rollins and Reigns who have been two of the top two stars for the last few years. Foley says they have gathered all 16 men here to tell them that throughout the night you shall find out your first round opponents as we shall be drawing the matches throughout the match. She says that after an ad break she wants Big Cass and Enzo Amore to wait out here as well as the Rhodes Scholars will be facing off against each other next.

    Match 1: Rhodes Scholars vs Big Cass and Enzo Amore

    Both teams put on a good showing in what is a face versus face match between two of the more popular face teams on the Raw roster as they battle it out both team really getting the crowd involved in the match. Big Cass spends most of the match on the ropes as Sandow and Rhodes know that Enzo is the weaker half of the duo but Enzo gets the hot tag to Big Cass after he managed to escape from Cody and get to Big Cass. They do the hot tag with getting a two count with a big boot to Damien Sandow. Sandow kicks out as Big Cass thinks about his next move. However before they can finish the match THE CLUB run down to the ring and take all 4 men down with steel chairs causing a no contest in this match.

    Spoiler:


    Winners: No Contest (15:23)

    The Club take everyone out in the ring before Finn Balor asks for a microphone. He says no matter what teams are in the WWE we will take them out and take over saying he is the Rock and Rolla in WWE. However as he is about to carry on the New Day appear on the titan-tron. They say that they had a word with Stephaine and Mick Foley about their rematch clause and have a unique proposal due to your antics and flair for interference. You see whoever wins at Backlash whether it will be you or the Hype Bros on the pre-show will face us in 3 vs 3 tornado tag street fight for what should be OUR tag team titles and we will show you that NEW DAY ROCKS, NEW DAY ROCKS, NEW DAY ROCKS. Finn tells them to shut up but New Day say turn around as Rhodes Scholars, Enzo and Big Cass run at them chasing the Club off as they retreat up the ramp no longer having the sneak attack advantage.

    We cut to backstage as Steph draws the first match. They draw the names out revealing Big Cass and Finn Balor as the first match to be drawn tonight. We then go to an ad break after finding out one of 8 first round matches in the World title tournament.

    We see the Club walking backstage when Mick Foley appears with a smile on his face. Finn asks him what he wants and Foley tells him due the Club antics in the last few weeks he wants to make sure they cause no more trouble at Backlash banning them from each others matches at Backlash. Finn protests saying he needs to be there to support his boys but Foley tells him he needs to rest for his match with Mojo Rawley later tonight which Gallows and Anderson are banned from ringside for before wishing him a nice day.

    We cut backstage where Tom Phillips is stood getting ready to go interview someone when Rusev comes up screaming his head off. He asks or even screams about Angle asking "WHERE IS HE? HE SCREAMS WHERE IS HE!" Tom tells him he has no idea before Rusev attacks Tom for not giving him the answer he wants before saying he is going to ring and will make Angle and Shelton come to him.

    We cut elsewhere as Foley says he needs to go deal with this which Stephaine agrees to as she draws the next match out of the hat which is Kurt Angle vs Samoa Joe which gets a pop from the crowd clearly eager for this big match up.

    Rusev after the ad break storms down to the ring with Lana by his side as even she looks worried about her husband's temper at this moment in time. She goes to speak but Rusev says give me the microphone NOW. She does so clearly seeing Rusev is not in a mood to listen to common sense or reason. He says he wants his rematch for the US title at Backlash demanding it be a no DQ match before saying he wants Angle in this ring tonight so he can break his neck for good so he never interferes in his matches again.

    He demands Angle come to the ring right now however Mick Foley the Raw GM makes his way out to the ring. Foley informs us as much as he would love to book a US title re-match to Backlash he is unable to do so. Rusev however does not seem happy and says he wants it this Sunday saying he knows Angle would not dare mess with him when he would have his focus elsewhere but Foley tells Rusev that with the World title tournament there is no room for the US title match on the main card. Foley tells Rusev he can have his no DQ rematch next week on Raw and can give him a match with Angle and Benjamin right now in a tag team match next you team with Ryback next. Rusev is still fuming in the ring as everyone makes their entrances.

    Match 2: Rusev and Ryback vs Shelton Benjamin and Kurt Angle

    Rusev starts the match and does not want to tag Ryback in wanting to take out all of his anger on Shelton and Angle which leaves Ryback on the apron annoyed at not getting to take part in the match. He does silly things like throwing Shelton and Angle into the corner so they can tag in and out as he wants to beat both men up in this match. However after the early stages he keeps Angle in the ring focusing on him and going after his neck. However towards the end the lack of a plan works against Rusev. Angle is able to counter him hitting him with an over the head belly to belly. He goes for the hot tag whilst Rusev finally tags himself out tagging in Ryback to the match.Shelton however looks like he is going to get the win with a T-bone suplex when Rusev runs into break it up but Angle after this takes him out of the ring as the two men brawl up the ramp. Shelton then hits Ryback with T-bone suplex and pins him for the 3 count giving the US champion a nice win.

    Spoiler:


    Winners via pinfall: Shelton Benjamin and Kurt Angle (12:45)

    Post-match we cut to backstage before an ad break for the next match draw which is Sami Zayn vs Cedric Alexander.

    We return from the ad break to see Rusev and Angle brawling backstage still. However Rusev gets sent through a table by Angle as security finally come round to separate both men dragging them apart with Angle gaining the upper hand over the former US champion.

    Match 3: Nia Jax vs Paige

    These two go to war with each other after the past few weeks with both women full on trying to hurt each other. The actions is rough with Nia Jax throwing Paige over the top rope as she follows to the outside to carry on the fight shortly into the match. The battle carries on the outside as the ref starts to reach the count of 8, these two don't even looking like they have any interest in making it back in the ring. The ref reaches the ten count as Nia Jax throws Paige into the barricade meaning this is a double countout.

    Spoiler:


    Winner: Double count out (3:54)


    They are not done though just because the match is over as Nia Jax goes to the ringside area and takes a steel chair from one of the officials sat down at ringside taking it and heading towards Paige with it in hand to carry on her assault. However when Nia Jax swings the chair she hits it onto the barricade as Paige dodges the attack before hitting her with a superkick. She then picks up the chair going for the attack but Nia Jax chooses to back off heading towards the back saying not today as Paige stands at ringside shouting THIS IS MY HOUSE banging the chair onto the ringside floor challenging Nia Jax to come back and face her.

    We cut to elsewhere backstage where Steph and Foley are shown by the draw tumbler. Steph is ranting at how some of the roster seem to be out of control and that they need to bring a tighter leash down on some of these people.However Mick disagrees saying this is natural when you have superstars like we have today on the roster who want to prove themselves before saying that he has set up a match for the pre-show with Nia Jax facing off against Paige in a falls count anywhere match on the Backlash pre-show. Steph makes a comment how this does not happen on NXT where HHH runs things before they draw the next match for the World title tournament.

    They start to draw the names out of the hat with Steph drawing out Damien Sandow before Mick Foley pulls the other name out of the hat: CODY RHODES. We then cut to another area of the backstage where both members of the Rhodes Scholars are shown sat down watching a monitor.

    Both men look in shock with Sandow breaking the silence saying we knew this was a possibility. Cody responds he was hoping to beat Sandow in the final. Sandow smirks before telling his tag team partner may the best man win as they shake hands both ready to beat each other for the chance to become the World champion.

    Match 4: Finn Balor vs Mojo Rawley

    This is an OK match but Finn is doing his best working with someone as limited as Mojo Rawley whilst commentary hype up the fact he will be facing Big Cass in the first round of the Backlash tournament with his match here a warm up facing off against a bigger opponent. Finn in the end uses his superior brains and tricks by taunting Ryder to confront him on the apron but Mojo runs into him by mistake before Finn hits Mojo with a pele kick and then climbs to the top rope hitting the Coup D'Grace on Mojo for the 3 count.

    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Finn Balor (6:03)

    Post-match Finn being the cocky shit he is asks for a microphone as he heads up the ramp from near the commentary desk before he starts to taunt the Hype Bros. He says if that is the best the Hype Bros have his boys will have an easy time retaining their titles and he will go on to become World champion dominating the WWE like he did Japan. At this point Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder have a microphone and start to fire back saying his boys will have to stand on their own two feet and the Hype Bros will show they are not just Hype with mojo jumping in saying we stay hyped as the segment comes to a close with Hawkins questioning if what Mojo even said makes any sense.

    Alexa Bliss makes her way out to the ring after an ad break to a decent amount of heat as she stands in the ring before mocking the crowd how they wanted Becky to win and look what happened. She says she is sick of hearing about the 4 horsewomen being the only women to come from NXT and make it great. She calls them over hyped, overrated and given shots that she has not been given due to fact she is not one of the golden 4.

    At this point Sasha Banks has had enough of listening to Alexa Bliss run her mouth once again and makes her way out to the ring. Sasha says that she and other 3 horsewomen got to the top by proving they were the best bringing up how she has beaten Bliss in NXT before and even broke her nose, threatening to do so again. Bliss says that was before she woke up and stopped being a naive little girl something Sasha used to struggle with. Sasha says she grew up and the reason she is on top is because she is the BOSS of this women division and not some former cheerleader who developed a new bratty attitude. She tells Bliss that unlike Becky she will do whatever it takes to win and any tricks Bliss tries she already thought of them. Bliss thinks about responding but instead smacks Banks in the face with the microphone before going on the attack laying out Sasha with her DDT as she holds the Women's title up to end the segment.

    We come back from the ad break for the next draw as they reveal that Wade Barrett will be facing off against Big E of the New Day in round 1 of the World title tournament.

    Match 5: Braun Strowman and Wade Barrett vs Cedric Alexander and Sami Zayn

    Fun match between the two teams here with commentary mentioning the fact that two opponents in round 1 will be teaming here and how will they co-exist whilst they hype up the destructive power of Strowman. They also mention how he will probably want to get some measure of payback on Cedric after the shock loss to him. Barrett plays the cowardly heel here for the most part letting Strowman do most of the work as he seems to be saving himself for the PPV. Wade Barrett however after Strowman has laid out Alxeander with a reverse chokeslam tags himself in to the match hitting winds of change on Zayn before taking Alexander down with a Bullhammer to the face and gaining the 3 count.

    Spoiler:

    Winners via pinfall: Braun Strowman and Wade Barrett (8:29)

    Post-match Nick Aldis joins Wade Barrett in the ring as they try to gloat. He then also tries to get Strowman to join in with the celebrations but Strowman is having none of it and attacks both men taking them down with a double clothesline. He then hits Nick Aldis with a running powerslam before grabbing Wade Barrett and hitting him with one as well. Strowman stands in the ring with the wreckage around him with the commentary hyping whether ANYONE can stop this beast as we go to an ad break.

    We come back from the ad break as Emma and Dana Brooks make their way out to the ring together. Emma says she wants Charlotte to come out to the ring right now. She waits a while before telling Charlotte to hurry up she is a busy person and does not have all day.

    Charlotte makes her way out to the ring saying she has no interest in wasting time with someone who constantly fails and she also wants nothing to do with Dana Brooks. Emma calls out how she treated her friend Dana Brooks saying she may be an evil bitch but Charlotte takes being a total bitch to another level. Charlotte says if Emma wants to run her mouth Charlotte can put her back on the shelf. Emma smirks before challenging her to a match on the Backlash pre-show. Charlotte says yes on the condition that she can have some at ringside to stop Dana from costing her a win like always. Emma mocks her saying who would want to be a ringside to help someone who ditched their own dad. This is when CARMELLA appears from behind attacking Emma whilst Charlotte attacks Dana Brooks. The segment ends with Carmella and Charlotte standing tall in the ring with Charlotte seemingly having found someone new to mentor in the Women's division.


    We come back from the ad break as they draw out the next match to be announced for the World title tournament with it being announced that Chris Jericho will face Cesaro in the first round. We see Chris Jericho making his way to the ring for his match against Curtis Axel next.

    Match 6: Chris Jericho vs Curtis Axel

    Chris Jericho is ready to start the match when Cesaro's music hits as he makes his way down to the ring in a suit and takes a seat on the commentary table distracting Jericho which allows Curtis Axel to take control of the match for a little bit. However this does not last long. It is interesting to note that the crowd reacted to cheering Jericho mainly due to this being heel vs heel. On commentary we can see Cesaro talking about how he is here to scout his opponent for Backlash and that even though he knows him he can learn new things as Jericho always changes himself and his style. However throughout the match it is noted Jericho seemed to be struggling with his leg before hitting Axel with a Codebeaker for the 3 count.

    Spoiler:

    Winnervia pinfall: Chris Jericho (9:34)


    When we come back from an ad break we have a nice little segment with Bayley backstage where she see Sasha and hugs her before talking about her match at Backlash wishing her luck before saying she looks forward to at some point facing Sasha for her title. Sasha avoids the subject mentioning that like Bayley did in NXT you need to work your way up but when you do face me for the title we will steal the show and this time the boss will win before giving Bayley another hug.

    Main Event: Seth Rollins vs Samoa Joe

    Before either men makes their entrance we see Roman Reigns make his way out to heat from the crowd. He takes a seat at the commentary table before mentioning the fact that he may be facing off against Seth Rollins in the first round and wants to see how much of this change of heart he has supposedly had whilst injured is real. He then mentions the fact that he also wants to see Samoa Joe in person and see what he is about planning ahead for if Samoa Joe makes it far enough to face him. Roman Reigns shows a lot of cockiness on commentary whilst also insulting Rollins calling him a snake and saying the crowd really should not be buying his change of heart. Both Rollins and Samoa Joe put on a great match here with the end of the match coming when Rollins looks like he is about to hit Joe with a curb stomp but instead chooses to mock Reigns doing a superman punch mimicking him to the delight of the crowd which allows Joe to take control. He then gets him up for the muscle buster to get the 3 count and the win in his first Raw main event sending a message to the rest of the tournament as we cut to Kurt Angle watching and remarks quietly that is the Joe I know.

    Spoiler:

    Winner via pinfall: Samoa Joe (18:32)

    Samoa Joe stands tall in the ring as Roman Reigns watches on and he lets out a little smirk as we cut elsewhere backstage where Steph welcomes HHH into the room and there is a little tension between HHH and Foley. We then have HHH comment how they taught Rollins better then that and he needs to cut out the mistakes like that if he wants to win the World title and bring it back where it belongs. HHH says lets draw the last 2 matches. HHH draws the first name out being Roman Reigns before Foley draws out Kofi Kingston. Steph then declares that means the last two names are Braun Strowman and Seth Rollins with HHH looking worried for his protege as Raw ends with the announcement of the final World title tournament as it fades to black.

    Re: WWE: A different future


    September 6th


    Match 1: Number one contender's match: Tyson Kidd vs Neville

    Smackdown live starts off with the Number one contender's match for the Cruiserweight title with the winner getting to face whoever leaves the Cruiserweight classic with the title. These two are very familiar with each other and in a repeat of Summerslam seem to be able to know each other tricks with counter after counter between the old rivals. However towards the end when Tyson tries to go for an eye poke, Neville has it scouted grabbing his arm before lifting him up and dropping him with a power-bomb. He then climbs to the top rope and goes for red arrow but Tyson Kidd moves out of the way. Neville scouted this and responded by landing on his feet dodging Kidd's kick and laying him down with a superkick. He then picks up Kidd and locks in the rings of Saturn before getting the win via submission.

    Spoiler:


    Winner via submission: Neville (9:21)


    The Miz and Maryse are shown backstage with the Miz seemingly a bit cautious about where he is going and looking around every corner. Daniel Bryan then appears round the corner asking what Miz is looking for asking if he is scared. Miz laughs off Bryan's comments saying he is not scared. He says he is the greatest IC champion of all time and now he is stuck facing some creepy cult leader who would desecrate the most prestigious belt in the WWE today. Bryan makes a quip that Miz is doing what Bryan did as a kid and facing his fears. Maryse tells Bryan that if her husband says he is not scared then he is not sacred before mentioning that Bryan used to be part of the Wyatts and the only reason Bray has been given a title shot is because Bryan wants to hurt Miz and put him in the ring with a crazy person. Bryan smirks saying he knows the Wyatts well before telling Miz he learn more about one of them next week as he will have a tune up against one of the Wyatts as he faces Erick Rowan next week. Meanwhile tonight he can host a special episode of Miz TV with his hosts being the Wyatt Family.

    We come back from the ad break as Hunico makes his way to the ring with a scowl on his face and his old theme music back from when he first took off the Sin Cara mask. He tells the crowd to shut up and listen to him. He talks about how he was told to wear the Sin Cara mask after the original Sin Cara left the country in shame. He was told to do it for all the kids watching and so they would have someone to look up. He brings up the fact the company made him swallow his pride before telling the crowd how disrespectful it is to put a mask back on after unmasking. However they did not care about how he was killing himself on the inside and disrespecting his heritage every time he stepped in the ring, every time he teamed with Kallisto just so he could be a little hero to some bratty kids in the crowd.

    He then brings up his tag team with Kallisto. How his former partner Kallisto needed someone to hold his hand all of the time. He says even during his US title reigns he had him there to help him and protect him from others because he could not get the job done by himself. At this point Kallisto makes his way out to the ring. Kallisto tells Hunico he never had any clue that Hunico hated wearing the mask so much as he never told him and would have had no problem with him not wearing it. He also tells him if he did not want to team with him and fight against Rhyno and Corbin that would have been fine because he would have fought them by himself if he had to. However now? All Kallisto wants to do is kick Hunico's ass for betraying him. Kallisto makes his way to the ring run into attack Hunico slides out keeping hold of the microphone saying no no no. He tells Kallisto he will face him on his terms as he is sick of doing things on other people's time. He tells Kallisto he will face him at No Mercy before escaping through the crowd as Kallisto rages in the ring annoyed at the fact that Hunico has gotten away here tonight.

    We then cut backstage to show John Cena walking through the back talking to workers with commentary mentioning that later on tonight he will be facing Kevin Owens in the main event of Smackdown tonight.

    Match 2: Number one contender's match: The Usos vs Rhyno and Corbin

    Like the week before there is an attack as someone makes their entrance to the ring. Baron Corbin and Rhyno make their way out when RVD and Kane come out and attack them as they make their way out to the ring looking to gain a measure of payback for what Corbin and Rhyno did to them last week. They lay out the pair before hitting a chokeslam to Rhyno and RVD hits a 5 star frog splash leaving Rhyno in the ring as RVD walks off shouting looks like an old dog can learn new tricks.The Usos make their way down to the ring. Rhyno struggles to get up as the ref starts the match and the Usos take advantage of what just happened. Corbin recovered shortly into the match but the Usos work together to keep him Rhyno away from his corner and knock Corbin off the apron with a pair of superkicks before Jey hits the superfly splash for the 3 count on Rhyno.

    Spoiler:


    Winners via pinfall: The Usos (3:09)


    After that match we cut to the backstage area as we see Renee Young interviewing Dean Ambrose. She asks him about the number one contender to his WWE title Kevin Owens. He mentions how Kevin Owens will be desperate because Sami Zayn proved he was the better man. At this point we see Kevin Owens walking into shot. He tells Ambrose to shut him mouth saying Sami Zayn got lucky. He tells the crowd he was too focused on not causing any pain to Zayn as he defeated him. He says this would have disturbed his son watching at home as he crushed someone he used to play with on a regular basis but when he faces Ambrose he will have no such problems. He says that title will mean more money for his wife and kid promising to do anything needed to take that title from Dean Ambrose. He tells Ambrose to watch his main event later tonight to see what a true prize fighter looks like. Dean Ambrose makes a quip after Kevin Owens has left saying people call him crazy.


    We then get a promo package showing off #DIY in action showing highlights of their matches in NXT as well as their match against each other in the CWC. The promo package finishes stating that after an ad break they will be fighting next on Smackdown Live.

    Match 3: #DIY vs The Vaudevillians

    This match is mostly here to show how good #DIY are in the ring so the Vaudevillians are actually allowed to put on a decent showing and no tjust being squashed like you would expect in this match between them and the new team to Smackdown Live. The result never really seems in doubt though as #DIY put on a clinic with them picking up the win with Gargano locking in the Gargano escape on Gotch and Cimapa locking in his fujiwara armbar giving the pair the win in their first match on Smackdown Live.

    Spoiler:


    Winners via submission: #DIY (13:01)
    We cut to the backstage area where we can see American Alpha watching backstage studying the team in action clearly interested in the new team on the block.

    We come back from an ad break to find the Miz TV set ready in the ring as The Miz makes his way out to the ring with his wife Maryse on his arm. The Miz hypes up this edition of Miz TV talking about how we are tonight going to get an insight into the Wyatt family and he will dig deep into what makes them tick. He then tells the crowd that today is day 155 in the Intercontinental title tour which will never stop. The Miz brings up greats like the Macho Man Randy Savage, The Rock, Richie the Dragon Steamboat, Bret Hart, Stone cold Steve Austin saying he is a better Intercontinental champion then them all and will break the Honky Tonk Man's record for days holding the Intercontinental title.

    The Miz then changes subject to his opponent at No Mercy Bray Wyatt. He says Bray Wyatt is a monster of a man who has a bunch of followers. Almost like the many adoring fans an A-list star like The Miz has. He then invites Bray Wyatt to come down to the ring. Bray Wyatt makes his entrance to the ring with his family flanking the eater of worlds on both sides. Maryse is on edge and seems different from her usual demeanour but Miz seems way more freaked out and cautious then Maryse does in this situation. He brings up the fact that in the past Bray has not really being that interested in titles since coming to WWE and has been more personal in what he has targeted, being more interested in sending a message leading Miz to ask why he targeted him and his IC title.


    Bray says for too long he has focused on his message and trying to help people to see their truth about themselves and the world they live in. He says that people hide themselves from how dark and scary it is. However he made the mistake of thinking people would listen to common sense. He says he needs something prove that he needs to be listened to and worshipped. He then says dethroning the the longest reigning singles champion on Smackdown? When Daniel Bryan offered mean opportunity to get the IC title and lead my family to gold so I can lead all these fan to the truth. It is time for him to take the gold from the one who false claims to be a movie idol and place it in the hands of the eater of Worlds.

    He says he plans for his family to take all the gold on Smackdown Live and allow everyone to see they need to follow the buzzards. This gets a mixed reaction from the crowd. The Miz tells him he may have brainwashed some of the fans in the crowd to cheer for him but the fame that The Miz has it what makes the IC title so great and he has restored this title to the greatest position it has been in years. Heck even all time. Bray however smirks before telling Miz it is time to run as Harper and Rowan move towards Maryse. At this point the Miz grabs the title and his wife getting the hell out of the ring as they retreat up the ramp as Bray stands in the ring with his family. He then starts to sing in his own creepy way “He's got the whole world in his hands” as the segment draws to the close with the Miz knowing how much danger he truly is in.


    We come back from the ad break with Jack Gallagher in the catering area having a discussion with a member of staff whilst he is treating himself to some tea. At this point Sheamus comes into the catering area interrupting Gallagher's conversation. Jack offers to give Sheamus some tea with Sheamus telling him to get lost and shove his tea up his arse. He tells Jack that people like him promote stereotypes that stupid Americans believe and you make wrestlers from the British isles look bad by being here. Jack Gallagher shrugs telling Sheamus he is not going to change how much of a gentleman he is even if Sheamus has a problem with it before wishing Sheamus a good day leaving the Celtic warrior fuming.

    Match 4: American Alpha vs Tony Nese and Drew Gulak

    This ends up being a good but short match with American Alpha putting on a show here with Gulak and Nese as always putting on a great match but losing to the great amplitude. We cut to the backstage after the match where we #DIY watching the monitor like American Alpha were early on in the night.

    Spoiler:


    Winners via pinfall: American Alpha (6:31)


    AJ Styles comes out to the ring next. He gets into the ring calling himself the face that runs this place and should never have had to earn his title shot in a multi-man match. He says after beating John Cena he proved that he is top guy on this brand and he will make Smackdown his house and build it as the true A brand. He is about to carry on ranting when Randy Orton makes his way out to the ring. Randy Orton tells AJ Styles if beating John Cena is the benchmark for an automatic title shot then he should be at the front of the line as he has beaten John Cena more then anyone else in the company. AJ Styles however brings up the amount of times Orton has lost to John Cena as well as talking about maybe he is suffering from brian damage after facing off against the Beast Brock Lesnar. Orton responds he punted Lesnar in the skull and he has not been seen since do you want me to do the same to you? AJ smirks and fakes not wanting to attack Orton before hitting him with a forearm to the face. He then starts to attack Orton and beat him down however Orton is able to counter and hits AJ Styles with a RKO. Randy then picks up the microphone again before telling AJ Styles he will see him at No Mercy.

    Match 5: Jack Gallagher vs Akira Towaza

    Both men make their way to the ring with this being Akira Towaza debut on Smackdown in a rematch from the CWC or it would be if not for Sheamus. The match never starts as Sheamus comes out and beats both of the cruiserweights down focusing most of his rage onto Jack Gallagher hitting him with Celtic Cross for each impact as he stands tall over the carnage to end the segment.

    We cut to the backstage area to see two mirrors up with Breezedango checking their faces in the mirror admiring how gorgeous they are. They look to be applying stuff to their face to make sure their good looks carry on whilst they get to the topic of the Usos. Breezedango make jokes about the fact if the Usos used this stuff instead of face paint they may not look quite as ugly as they look all the time. They make jokes about not knowing which is more ugly before asking wait which is which anyway. They finish the segment up by saying they will for the good of WWE keep the tag team titles away from the Uggos.


    Apollo Crews is walking back stage when suddenly from behind he is attacked by the Shining Stars who beats him down. Apollo Crews puts up a good fight as the stronger man but the Shining stars leave him laid out before dropping a Puerto Rico flag on him as they leave.

    Main Event: Kevin Owens vs John Cena


    Dean Ambrose makes his way out to the commentary booth to watch this encounter where he talks about what Kevin Owens is driven by and says he aims to become the Kingpin of the WWE championship. He says he aims to hold this belt for a long time taking on all comers starting off with the man coming from Raw who is nearly as obsessive as he is.He mentions that he used to have the same anger that Owens does towards Zayn and heck he still holds a lot of that towards Seth Rollins for what he did. However he has learned to manage that rage and focus on other targets that are worth his focus. He can control his obsession with getting payback and channel it into becoming the Kingpin of Smackdown live.

    The match is decent with Kevin Owens controlling it with Cena seemingly a bit rusty but both men showing off how good they are. Ambrose shows a lot of hostility noticeably towards John Cena calling him a lazy part-timer which JBL questions but Ambrose says he would rather focus on the man fighting for his WWE title who is here and not off filming some movie with the Rock. In the finish for the match Kevin Owens comes over to the ring side area and throws John Cena into Dean Ambrose. He then picks up John Cena rolling him back into the ring going for a pop-up powerbomb connecting. He goes to cover Cena but the ref can be seen talking to Dean Ambrose who is trying to get into the ring to attack Owens.


    Owens goes towards the ropes telling him to leave. This makes Ambrose more irate with the ref having to hold him back as Dolph Ziggler runs out and superkicks Cena. This causes Cena to go towards Owens who hits a pop-up powerbomb as Ziggler slides out of the ring as Ambrose looks really confused as to what Ziggler is doing out here. Owens gets the 3 count and the win over John Cena.

    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Kevin Owens (13:44)


    Post-match Ambrose is in shock when Owens slides out of the ring and gets into his face with Ambrose headbutting him before hitting Owens with dirty deeds. He picks up the WWE title shouting at Owens you want this? Meanwhile in the ring Cena is just stirring as Ziggler stands in the ring to a mixed reaction with a look that says he regrets what he just did. He tells Cena he is sorry before walking off as Smackdown ends with John Cena looking confused.

    Smackdown ends as Owens stands tall in the ring whilst mouthing off in Ambrose's face. On the outside Ziggler looks on almost guilty about his actions tonight. 2 hours 10 mins

    Re: WWE: A different future



    September 8th

    Brian Kendrick
    vs Jack Swagger

    Brian Kendrick made his return to the company during the CWC and here he faces off against Jack Swagger in a decent back and forth match which really sells Kendrick's new persona as a cunning heel who will do whatever it takes to win as he knows this could be his last chance at success. The match ends when Kendrick uses a low blow out of the ref's view before locking a bully choke on Swagger for the submission win.

    Winner via submission: Brian Kendrick (10:13)

    Becky Lynch vs Tamina

    Becky Lynch here looks to recover from his loss to Alexa Bliss in the number one contender's match however she faces off here against Tamina who is looking for a win in what is her first match in awhile. Tamina shows off her power here but there was always going to be one winner as Becky locks in the dis-armer for the win via submission over Tamina here.

    Winner via submission: Becky Lynch (9:31)

    Sheamus vs Lince Dorado

    Sheamus here faces off against one of the new cruiserweights on the Smackdown roster in Lince Dorado who puts up a decent fight against the angry beast that is the Celtic warrior but in the end Sheamus wins the match with a brouge kick to the face.

    Winner via pinfall: Sheamus (8:40)

    Main event: Alberto Del Rio vs Jinder Mahal

    This is a heel vs heel match to main event the Main event taping with Alberto Del Rio playing more of the face role as the match goes on here with Jinder trying to do cheap shots but to no avail as in the end Del Rio locks in the cross armbreaker (not the silly finisher he had when he came back) and gets the submission win here over Jinder Mahal.

    Winner via submission: Alberto Del Rio (8:57)

    Gold Rush World tournament preview show: Network Special


    We open up the show with Corey Graves, Micheal Cole and Booker T sat around a table. They discuss the fact that at Backlash 16 men enter and we will have one World champion by the end of the night. They then say we know the first round matches but we don't know the brackets before placing up the tournament brackets on the screen:


    Samoa Joe vs Kurt Angle

    Chris Jericho vs Cesaro

    Sami Zayn vs Cedric Alexander

    Damien Sandow vs Cody Rhodes

    Big E vs Wade Barrett

    Braun Strowman vs Seth Rollins

    Big Cass vs Finn Balor

    Roman Reigns vs Kofi Kingston


    They hype up the fact that we could potential get a Seth Rollins vs Roman Reigns semi final as well as they fact that we could see Kurt Angle vs Chris Jericho in the quarters or even a New Day clash in the semi finals as well. They talk off also a potential final of Samoa Joe vs Roman Reigns in a battle of the Samoans or a rematch of the wars in NXT with Finn Balor vs Samoa Joe and who would come out on top this time. They then say that now we are going to show you the sit down interviews we had which each member of this tournament.


    Backlash (Wrestler interviews):


    Samoa Joe:

    Corey Graves sits on a chair as Samoa Joe enters the room wearing a nice suit and a scowl on his face as he sits down in the interview room.


    Corey Graves: Welcome Joe. How are you finding being on the main roster after arriving from NXT?

    Samoa Joe: About the same. It feels good to be at the top where I belong as for too long I was kept away from the top because they feared how much I would dominate.

    Corey Graves: Now I watched you in NXT and saw first hand how you destroyed nearly everyone in your path before you became NXT champion including some of the competition in this tournament. Does it make you even more confident?

    Samoa Joe: It does not matter whether I have faced my opponent in this tournament before or it is someone I have not had the chance to beat. The outcome will be the exact same result and that is me leaving Backlash as the World champion.

    Corey Graves: I have always been a big fan of yours even before you came to WWE. How do you feel about your first round match being against a future hall of famer who you have competed against before and had numerous battles with around the country?

    Samoa Joe: Kurt Angle is someone who I know very well and he knows how much of a threat I am. If I was not in this I would classify him as the favourite to win this tournament however I will beat him like I have before.

    Corey Graves: Thank you for your time Joe and good luck in the tournament.

    Samoa Joe: You should be wishing everyone luck.


    Kurt Angle:


    Micheal Cole: Welcome Angle it is good the have you back in the WWE.

    Kurt Angle: Thank you Micheal it feels good to be back in the WWE after so long.

    Micheal Cole: What was it like the night you returned?

    Kurt Angle: The crowd as always were amazing and as great it was getting to perform in different companies and try out new experiences it feels good to be back in the WWE and at the top of the wrestling world.

    Micheal Cole: Where you fought guys like Samoa Joe?

    Kurt Angle: Yes Samoa Joe was one of the toughest guys I have ever fought. I have however beaten him before and I will beat him on Sunday. It's true.

    Micheal Cole: Did you learn any new tricks from your time away from WWE?

    Kurt Angle: I did and I hope to use them as I become a 7 time world champion in the WWE. There are lot of new up and comers who are looking to say that they beat Kurt Angle. Including ones who seems to have a problem with this country.

    Micheal Cole: Speaking of which what do you have to say regarding the recent issues you have had with Rusev?

    Kurt Angle: Rusev is trying to get attention by telling everyone how much America sucks when in fact it him that sucks. All the fans know it is true it is damn true. He was trying to cheat one of my close friend and I put a stop to it. Rusev cost himself the US title and he is not fit to hold it. I have every confidence that Shelton will beat Rusev 1, 2, 3 without Angle being involved and maybe Rusev will finally stop running his mouth.

    Micheal Cole: What about the prospect of if you get to the final you may face one of the two men who have become top stars in WWE whilst you were away Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns?

    Kurt Angle: Both men came to the WWE and took success. They bust down the door and went straight to the top. They came in from day 1 and went for the top stars. I have no doubt both men are gunning for me and I welcome it. I look forward to give the WWE universe a dream match which I intend to win if I ended up facing either man in the final.

    Micheal Cole: Thank you for your time Kurt.


    Cesaro:


    Corey Graves: Welcome Cesaro and thank you for your time.

    Cesaro: It is not my normal thing but I am glad to here.

    Corey: You have always been a man who has let your in ring work do the talk for you?

    Cesaro: Yes I feel that what I can do between the ropes is enough to sell how great I am and I aim to go out there and prove how great I am without having to make a list or call myself the GOAT.

    Corey: I am guessing you are talking about Chris Jericho?

    Cesaro: You would be correct.

    Corey: Why do you find him to be such a problem? Jericho in the past has proven whilst he has a big mouth he is a credible crafty opponent.

    Cesaro: I know I am great and I can say that in 5 different languages Corey. However I have never felt the need. Jericho is a future hall of famer but maybe too much time with his rock band has gone to his head. I will beat Jericho again at Backlash and then it is a case of beating 3 other men on the way to becoming World champion.

    Corey: Thank you for your time Cesaro.


    Chris Jericho:


    Micheal Cole: Welcome Chris thank you for your time.

    Jericho:You should be honoured to have me here let alone after wasting your time interviewing the other 15 men who will fall in the path of Jericho.

    Cole:Well the tournament is not...

    Jericho: You know what happens when you refuse to acknowledge that Chris Jericho will become World champion? You just made the list!

    Cole: I am sorry Jericho but we have to hear the thoughts of everyone in the tournament not just you.

    Jericho: If you guys feel the need to waste your time instead of drinking in the gift of Jericho that makes you a stupid idiot.

    Cole: So there is no one in the tournament who worries you?

    Jericho: Other then finding room for them on the list no Cole they don't.

    Cole: Even the man who beat you at Summerslam the Swiss Superman Cesaro?

    Jericho: He got lucky at Summerslam. Call it beginner's luck. When it really matters Jericho always wins. Anyway Cole I am done with this interview as I am a busy man. At Backlash everyone is going to get......










    IT!

    Sami Zayn:

    Micheal Cole: Thank you for coming Zayn


    Sami Zayn: It is my pleasure Micheal. It feels so great to be in this tournament and have a chance to become World champion on Monday Night Raw.

    Cole:You must be on a real high at the moment after beating Kevin Owens at Summerslam and removing him from Monday night Raw.

    Zayn: Yeah it felt good to put that saga to bed once and for all. It feels like both of us were holding each other back by constantly being entangled with each other. I had to get that win over him to finally move on and progress in my career.

    Cole: A lot of people call you the underdog from the underground would you say you feel that way in this tournament especially with your first round match being against someone who has only just been signed to the WWE Cedric Alexander?

    Zayn: I may be seen as the underdog and heck maybe I still am but that should not mean I have no chance. I showed that I can compete with the best when I beat Kevin Owens in a last man standing match. That is an environment that suits a monster like Owens. I am a former NXT champion. Cedric is new to the WWE but I know of him from ROH. However we have never faced each other one on one so it will be a new challenge and he is someone who showed the world how good he is.

    Cole: Do you think you two will be able to match how great his match that got him signed?

    Zayn: We will have to see. As much as I would normally love to in a tournament like this winning as quickly as you can is very key.

    Cole: Thank you for you time Sami

    Zayn: No worries Micheal


    Cedric Alexander:

    Corey Graves: Welcome Cedric. How are you?

    Cedric Alexander: I am very good Corey yourself?

    Graves: I am good and I have to say your match with Kota Ibushi was the highlight of the CWC for me.

    Alexander: Thank you it is an honour to be here and have such a great match with someone of Kota's talent. The fans and HHH are the reason I am here right now with the chance to become World champion.

    Graves: How confident do you feel about your chance in the Gold Rush tournament?

    Alexander: I feel like after the Cruiserweight classic that anyone I face I can beat. When HHH signed me I knew that I had to cause a shock in my first match hence the mask and beating Strowman. If I can beat a monster like him I can beat anyone.

    Graves: You are a father is that correct?

    Alexander: Yes I am and a big part of everything I do is to make her life better. Seeing her dad become the World champion is what drives me to try to make sure I pull victory out of the bag in this tournament.

    Graves: Lastly how do you feel about facing Sami Zayn in the first round?

    Alexander: He is someone who has had to work his way up like I did so I have a lot of respect for the man and whilst I never got the chance to face him 1 vs 1 in ROH I will make up for loss time and beat him at Backlash.

    Graves:Thank you for your time Alexander and good luck.

    Cody Rhodes

    Micheal Cole: Welcome Cody it is good to see you back after your short time away from the WWE. What made you come back?

    Cody Rhodes: Not having to wear yellow face paint and talk about space.

    Cole: Seems like a very small reason to come back.

    Rhodes: WWE is not the only place to be. I was fed up and needed something to change. Being told to dress up and almost basically mock my brother was causing me not to perform at the level I belong as I am one of the best stars in the World. I had plans to travel the world facing the best it had to offer but when WWE offered me the chance to no longer mock my brother by being a poor imitation of him and reunite with my good friend Damien Sandow to show the WWE universe why I am the American nightmare? How could I resist?

    Cole: You seem very frustrated still with what happened before you left?

    Rhodes: Of course I am. Listen I love my brother and him dressing up in gold works for him but that ain't me. I don't want to be some poor intimation of someone I love. I am not Stardust. No I will be the star who leaves everyone in the dust.

    Cole: What are your plans then if you do win?

    Rhodes: I may makes some changes to the belt as we have not see what the title looks like yet. I did bring the current IC title into the company and it has been in the best state it has been since I held it and made it mean something again.

    Cole: How do you feel about facing Sandow in round one?

    Rhodes: I remember what my dad taught me. There are no friends when going for the World title. We will both give it our best but I aim to win. Once I win the World title he will be the first man to get a shot at it.

    Cole: Thank you for your time Rhodes.

    Damien Sandow

    Corey Graves: Hello Sandow

    Damien Sandow: Thanks for your indulgence Corey.

    Graves: How does it feel to come back after some time away?

    Sandow: It feels good to be back and for Foley to give me a chance to prove myself after I never really got a chance the first time. Now I have been given a chance I have defeated two of the biggest names from the last two years and now I am 4 wins away from becoming World champion.

    Graves: How did you feel after getting so much fan support but never getting a chance to prove yourself?

    Sandow: It broke me. I never got a chance to show what I could other then intimating others. Don't get me wrong I enjoy it and find it lot of funny making intimations of people but I should be able to do that and get a chance to compete for titles.

    Graves: How does facing you best friend and partner affect you?

    Sandow: Me and Cody are great friends however I will not allow that to stop me in my quest to become World champion. May the best man win but I intend for that to be me who wins.

    Graves: And Cody feels the same way?

    Sandow: He would not be my tag team partner if he did not.

    Graves: Thank you for your time Sandow

    Sandow: You're welcome

    Big E:

    Micheal Cole: Welcome Big E

    Big E: It is good to be here Micheal have you been eating your Booty O's?

    Micheal Cole: No I can't say I have

    Big E: But they make sure they you ain't booty. Here take this box Micheal.

    Micheal Cole: Um thank you Big E. How does it feel being part of a team who held the title for a year?

    Big E: It feels great and the fact that we ran the division shows that we all have the potential to win the World title. We know what it is like to be champions and a win for one of us is a win for us all.

    Cole: Since your days in NXT you seem a lot less serious.

    Big E: I have never been the most serious person. Just because I spoke less does not mean I was not the same as I am now. I can kick ass and make jokes like the rest of the New Day. I used beat people so bad I could keep down for a 5 count. Does someone who would ask for a 5 count seem like he is taking everything seriously? I will make jokes and have fun whilst taking care of business and becoming World Champion.


    Cole: How do you feel about your opponent Wade Barrett?

    Big E: He is booty. The guy seems so angry all of the time which is not healthy.

    Cole: What about the possibility of a New Day semi final?

    Big E: I will have to hit Kofi with enough force to keep someone down for 5 to beat him. But whoever wins out of us 2 New Day wins.

    Cole: Thank you for your time Big E

    Wade Barrett:

    Corey Graves: Thank you for your time Wade

    Wade Barrett: I better be getting paid for this

    Graves: I am sure you will be Barrett. How does it feel to be back and with a new partner?

    Barrett: It feels good to be back where I belong where I can earn the most money with a partner who has the same goals as I do.

    Graves: How is Nick's injury coming along after his match against those idiots Enzo and Cass?

    Barrett: Nick should be healed next week thankfully and his partner will be back by his side as he wins the World title.

    Graves: You were very close to the top once before as leader of the Nexus how does it feel to have another chance to achieve what you feel you should have done in the first place?

    Barrett: It feels like I am back where I belong competing for a title I should have had. I will beat Big E and show him that Backlash will be a bad news day for anyone who gets in my way.

    Graves: Thank you for your time Barrett


    Big Cass:


    Micheal Cole: Welcome Big Cass and Enzo Amore. You know this interview is just for Big Cass right?

    Enzo Amore: This is my home boy and I will be with him every step of the way as he shows the World he is the realest guy in the room how you doing.

    Cole: Fair enough how are you feeling right now Big Cass?

    Big Cass: I am feeling pumped and ready to show those jabroinis what they are store in for. I mean who am I going to beat?


    Enzo: Finn Balor?

    Big Cass: How you doing?

    Enzo: Braun Strowman

    Big Cass: How you doing?

    Enzo: Kofi Kingston

    Big Cass: How you doing?

    Enzo: Seth Rollins

    Big Cass: How you doing?

    Enzo: Roman Reigns

    Big Cass: How you doing?

    Enzo: Kurt Angle

    Big Cass: How you doing?

    Enzo: It does not matter who my boy Big Cass faces as he is 7 feet tall and you can't teach that.

    Cole: How do you feel about facing the leader of the Club Finn Balor in round one?

    Enzo: That guy made a big mistake on Raw attacking us during our match with the Rhodes Scholars because that Irish playgirl model wannabe is going to need lucky charms to even stand a chance with Big Cass.

    Big Cass: And with his goons in the back he stands no chance against me and I will make him pay for his attack on Monday.

    Enzo: And that is because Finn Balor is S A W F T. Sawwwwwwwwwft

    Micheal Cole: Thank you for your time guys and good luck

    Finn Balor:

    Corey Graves: Welcome Finn Balor and the Club how are you guys?

    Finn Balor: I am good Corey as are my boys ready to watch their boy finish his conquest of Monday night Raw by becoming World champion.

    Graves: It is good to have a former NXT champion he...

    Balor: Not just a former NXT champion, the LONGEST NXT champion

    Graves: I have to say as someone who was not a fan of you in NXT I really do like the new attitude. What caused it?

    Balor: There has been no real change other then me showing people how great I am. I have conquered everywhere and people wonder why I am so confident all the time? It is because I know how great I am and I know I am destined to become World champion conquering here like I helped conquer Japan. Heck look at what I left behind as the soldiers I left over there still conquer everything that is in their path. NXT has gone to greater heights with me leading it and been able to go on worldwide tours thanks to me. It is not my fault that I am greatness.

    Graves: So you are confident heading into the first round then?

    Balor: I was the prince in Japan and now in America I will become the KING.

    Graves: Can you do me a favour?

    Balor: Sure what is it?

    Graves: Please knock out Big Cass I could not stand that moron becoming World champion with Enzo never shutting up.

    Balor: Consider it done

    Graves: Thank you for your time rock and rolla

    Braun Strowman:

    Micheal Cole: Welcome Braun Strowman and thank you for your time

    Braun Strowman: Make this quick

    Cole: Um um OK why do you think you will win the World title tournament?

    Strowman: Look at me. I am a monster among men and I will crush whoever gets in my way!

    Cole: How do you feel about facing a former WWE champion in Seth Rollins?

    Strowman: IT DOES NOT MATTER WHO I FACE ALL SHALL FALL

    Cole: Ok thank you for your time Braun

    *Micheal Cole quickly gets out of the area*

    Seth Rollins:

    Corey Graves: Welcome Seth Rollins

    Seth Rollins: Thank you Corey it is good to be here.

    Graves: You seem to be having arguments with Stephanie McMahon a lot recently why is that?

    Rollins: We both want the same goals and that is me being on top but we also both feel I should be doing different things to get to the top. HHH is my mentor not her and I feel like I know what is better for my career then she does.

    Graves: So HHH will be helping you win this tournament?

    Rollins: HHH will be giving me advice but I will win this tournament by myself even if it means fighting a monster among men like Strowman. I don't just aim to be as good as HHH

    Graves: Do you have a plan for beating Strowman?

    Rollins: I am the architect I always have a plan Graves trust me I will find away to defeat Strowman.

    Graves: How do you feel about potentially facing Reigns in the semi finals?

    Rollins: I always beat Reigns and will beat him once again. I have his number and there is no one in this tournament I am less worried about then Reigns.

    Graves: Thank you for your time Rollins

    Rollins: No worries Corey

    Kofi Kingston:

    Corey Graves: Welcome Kofi Kingston

    Kofi Kingston: Hello Corey I trust you have been eating your Booty O's?

    Graves: No

    Kofi Kingston: But they make sure you ain...

    Graves:Yes I know the line. Do you guys spend all of your time coming up with these silly jokes? Do you think if you took things more seriously you would still be tag team champions?

    Kingston: We lost our titles due to Finn Balor helping his goons and cheating us. We did not know the level we were playing on. Tomorrow night we take back our tag team titles and they will go alongside either mine or Big E's World title.

    Graves: But don't you think this attitude of fun is what has caused you to never reach the top?

    Kofi Kingston: I have won numerous titles in WWE because of how relaxed and happy I have been. I may not have won the big one but I have very rarely gotten a chance like this. Roman Reigns is one of the top stars today but I have beaten people like CM Punk, Randy Orton before.

    Graves: You have anything that makes you think you can beat the top guy in WWE today?

    Kingston: The power of positivity. I am ready for anyone even my own partner and friend Big E.

    Graves: Thank you for your time Kofi

    Roman Reigns:

    Micheal Cole: Welcome Roman Reigns

    Roman Reigns: Thank you Micheal I am sure it is your pleasure I am here

    Cole: Recently you have lost your title and even lost to the team of Reigns and Rollins how are you feeling going into the tournament?

    Reigns: I feel as confident as ever. I am not a bad guy I am not a good guy I am the guy. I lost due to a ref not making the count at MITB, a triple threat is anyone's game and at Summerslam I lost due to partner who is unreliable. I will now get what should have always been mine back.

    Cole: Surely you feel though that maybe you have lost your stride especially with the stick you get from the fans?

    Reigns: When you are the best everyone comes to try to knock you off the top spot. Some people in the crowd dislike me and they have every right to hate me but I will still be the top guy no matter what.

    Cole: How do you feel face someone like Kofi who has won multiple titles and has been part of a year long title reign with tag team titles as part of the New Day?

    Reigns: He is another person in my way and I will beat him like all the rest.This will become the Roman empire.

    Cole: How do you feel about a potential show down with former ally Seth Rollins?

    Reigns: I will beat him. Every single time we fight he finds some way to weasel out a victory but this time I will defeat him for good ending his run of good luck against me.

    Cole: So you have no fear of anyone?

    Reigns: Why should I? I will beat whoever is in my path as it is 1 vs all. It does not matter if I face Kurt Angle in the final or Samoa Joe or Cesaro or Sami Zayn. I will become World champion once again.

    Cole: Thank you for your time Reigns

    We cut back to the studio where the 3 men talk about who they think will win. Micheal Cole predicts a Kurt Angle vs Cody Rhodes semi final with the other semi final being Seth Rollins vs Roman Reigns and predicting we shall see Roman Reigns vs Kurt Angle with Roman Reigns taking the World title. Corey Graves meanwhile predicts Samoa Joe vs Damien Sandow in one semi final whilst Finn Balor vs Roman Reigns in the other half. He then predicts we shall see a Samoa Joe vs Finn Balor final with Samoa Joe coming out on top showing his dominance from NXT and why he dethroned Finn. Booker T weighs in last predicting a Kurt Angle vs Cody Rhodes semi final like Cole before predicting a Seth Rollins vs Finn Balor semi final in the other half. He then says he expects a Kurt Angle vs Finn Balor final with Kurt Angle picking up the win with his veteran experience being the key to winning.

    Re: WWE: A different future



    September 11th

    Pre-show:

    We start off the pre-show with a cold open to the show as we see paramedics rushing round in a panic. The camera pans over to see what all the panic is about as we see Kurt Angle is on the floor laid out in a pool of his own blood! Foley comes over to the scene is shouting where is Rusev, knowing who is the mostly likely culprit of this heinous attack is. We hear more shouting as we cut to the pre-show panel of Booker T, Jerry Lawler and Lita as they discuss the scene that we have just witnessed.

    The pre-show panel talk about who would have done the attack with them all agreeing that only two men makes sense and that is Rusev and Samoa Joe. Both have motives to take out Angle before his match tonight. They say Joe's motives would be to make his run in this tournament a lot easier due to fact he would have one less match in this tournament. Meanwhile they mention the fact Rusev has not exactly got on well with Kurt Angle and that this could be a way for him to get Angle back for costing him his US title. They then discuss what this means for the tournament and whether Foley will find someone to replace Angle or if Joe gets a bye. We then cut to our first match of the night on the pre-show Nia Jax vs Paige in a falls count anywhere match.

    Falls count anywhere match: Nia Jax vs Paige

    The match ends up starting as a brutal affair with it quickly ending up outside of the ring at the start of the match with them brawling around the ringside area before they end up in the crowd. Paige is able to take control in the middle stages with the help of weapons. As we get towards the closing stages we have gone from the crowd to the backstage area.

    Closing sequence: Paige is crawling in the crowd when she grabs a chair that someone from the crowd has moved from. Nia Jax closes in on Paige looking to inflict some more pain on the anti-diva but Paige smashes her with the chair before slowly standing up hitting her in the back with a bunch of chair shots. She gets Nia Jax down before covering her but is only able to get a 2 count. She seems frustrated but has an idea as she lays a chair down before trying to hit a ram-paige onto the chair however Nia Jax counters slamming Paige down onto the chair.

    After that Nia Jax picks Paige throwing her over the side of the steps by the fans into a the camera crew set up area. Paige seems to be struggling as Jax makes her way around to cover her but Paige kicks out at 2 due to the time it took for Nia Jax to find her and cover her. Nia Jax just seems to be more angry as she throws Paige towards the backstage area as the camera follow showing Paige being thrown into wall after wall by Nia Jax. Paige desperately when in near a door rakes the eyes of Nia Jax to give herself a chance in this match before picking up a bat that is laying on a table hitting Nia Jax before covering her but only getting a 2 count.

    Paige seems unsure what she can do as she thinks about her next move looking for another weapon when she turns around as Nia Jax spears her through a locker room door taking them into an empty locker room. She throws Paige into one of the metal lockers before eyeing up a bench in the corner of the room. She picks up Paige and powerbombs her through the bench. Nia Jax then makes the cover ending this brutal match as Nia Jax shows how much of a monster she truly is.
    Spoiler:



    Winner via pinfall: Nia Jax (10:03)



    We move away from the scene as Nia Jax stands tall and moves away from Paige as we cut to elsewhere backstage where we cut to see Rusev talking with his wife when Foley comes into view. Foley is far from happy and is screaming at Rusev accusing him of being the man who assaulted Kurt Angle. Rusev denies any wrong doing saying he has been with his amazing wife all night as he plans for his US title rematch tomorrow night. However as Rusev is trying to deny any involvement Shelton Benjamin appears on the scene and launches himself at Rusev causing a brawl between the two men. Shelton seems to looking for blood with Foley calling over security to help with the issue and stop the fight from getting out of control pulling both men apart.

    Foley tells Rusev until he finds proof otherwise he is holding Rusev responsible for the attack on Angle and since he wants to attack someone till the point they are in a pool of their own blood his rematch for the US title will now be a no DQ match for the US title. Rusev smirks threatening to actually leave Shelton in a pool of his own blood like Angle was left by whoever attacked him smirking as he says it. Foley tells Rusev to get the hell out of his sight right now. Lana says something in Russian to her husband as they leave the area before Foley turns to Shelton Benjamin.

    Shelton asks Foley what condition Angle is in before being informed that due to the backstage assault by Kurt Angle he will no longer be able to compete tonight in the World title tournament leaving a space open. Shelton looks upset before promising to go find and Rusev beating his ass till it is black and blue with Foley grabbing him saying not tonight. He tells Shelton that they need a replacement for Kurt Angle so later on tonight in the pre-show they will have an over the top 20 man battle royal for the last spot and he can't think of anyone Angle would rather take his spot whilst also declaring that Rusev is banned from taking part in the battle royal.

    WWE tag titles match: The Club (c) vs The Hype Bros (Hawkins and Ryder)

    We come back to the ringside area after finding out there shall be another match on the pre-show tonight with a battle royal to choose who will get to face Samoa Joe instead of Kurt Angle with commentary mentioning that both teams here will be unable to take part in that match. The match in the beginning is a very close affair with both teams showing their skills and the Hype Bros showing why in the past they have been tag team champions even if it was many years ago.

    Closing sequence: The Club are in control of the match with Luke Gallows pounding away on Curt Hawkins however as he goes to Irish whip him Hawkins is able to hit Gallows with the laugh riot (implaer DDT). He is then able to get the hot tag to Zack Ryder whilst Gallows gets the tag to Karl Anderson. However Zack Ryder is on fire and is able to take Anderson down with a series of punches before getting him into the corner and hitting him with the Broski boot!. He then gets ready in the corner before charging and hitting the Rough Ryder to Karl Anderson going for the cover. 1 2 Luke Gallows breaks it up stopping the 3 count. However before he can do much more Curt Hawkins runs back in and takes them both over the top rope as they fight at ringside. Zack Ryder meanwhile rises to his feet and climbs the turnbuckle as Anderon is still laid out as he goes for the EL-Bro drop looking to win the tag team titles for a second time in his career.

    He goes for it but Anderson has recovered from the rough ryder and rolls out of the way leaving Zack to land straight onto the ring mat. Anderson takes advantage hitting him with a rocket kick to the head. Anderson knows that will not be enough picking up Ryder before hitting him with a diving neck-breaker covering Zack Ryder. Meanwhile on the outside Gallows hits Hawkins with a big boot keeping him down as the ref counts to 3 as the Club retain their tag team titles.

    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall and still WWE tag team champions: The Club (10:28)


    We cut back to the backstage area after having seen the Club retain their tag team titles once again where see Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley arguing backstage. They discuss the fact that Foley came up with the battle royal without even talking to her about it stating that Joe should in theory get a bye due to the attack. Foley however says that one we don't know that Joe did not take out Angle as it would have made perfect sense for him to do so and also gives someone a chance to stun the world giving the crowd an extra bonus match to watch. Stephanie says it is effectively giving a second chance to a number of people who lost but Foley says that due to the attack they are have limited options over what they can do. Stephanie says fine as she walks off as we get our third match of the pre-show.

    Emma w/Dana Brooks vs Charlotte w/Carmella

    This is a slow match with Charlotte seeming really off as the match goes along and does not seem to be able to perform the normal star quality standard that she is able to get to. The opening of the match is stop start also due to the fact that Carmella keeps getting involved in the match allowing Charlotte to take back control of the match whenever Emma is taking control.

    Closing sequence: Emma was in control until Carmella grabbed her leg allowing Charlotte to take Emma down with a big boot to the face of Emma. Charlotte at this point climbs up to the top rope gingerly. Meanwhile whilst this is going on Dana Brooks has had enough of Carmella getting involved in the match and gets in her face as they argue at ringside with them shoving each other. Dana Brooks and Carmella get into a shoving match with Carmella pushing Dana Brooks into the ring post causing Charlotte to fall off the top rope and land awkwardly onto her ankle grasping it in massive pain.

    Carmella climbs onto the apron looking to attack Emma to save the match for Charlotte but Dana Brooks takes her legs out from under her whilst she is stood on the apron stopping the princess of Staten island from causing any trouble in this match. Emma then aims at a kick at Charlotte's clearly injured leg taking her down to the mat. Emma then locks in her Emma lock with the hair-stomp to the back for good measure as she locks it into place. Charlotte tries to hang on but the pain is too much and Charlotte is forced to tap out to Emma giving Emma a massive return win.

    Spoiler:


    Winner via submission: Emma (8:12)


    After the match has ended we can see Emma and Dana Brooks head up the ramp celebrating together and hugging as they are so happy with Emma and Brooks being able to get a measure of payback for how Charlotte has treated Dana Brooks in recent months. Meanwhile inside the ring Carmella would slide in to make sure Charlotte is OK with the ref throwing up a X symbol to the back signifying that something is seriously wrong with Charlotte's leg.

    We cut to a backstage interview with Samoa Joe being interviewed by Tom Phillips asking him if he had anything to do with the attack on Angle bringing up the fact he has faced Angle worldwide before and it would make his chances a lot greater for the World title tournament by not having to take part in a match during the first round. Samoa Joe however laughs this comment off saying he has no reason to attack Angle as he has beaten Angle before when he has faced him elsewhere and he intends to run through all that get in his way. Tom then asks him how he feels facing the winner of the battle royal that is coming up next. Joe tells Tom it does not matter who wins as even if they had not already had a match in the night they would have stood no chance beating him.

    Over the top battle royal for Angle's spot in the World title tournament:

    Entrants: (Shelton Benjamin, Alberto Del Rio, Big Show, Enzo Amore, Xaiver Woods, Titus O'Neil, Darren Young, Mojo Rawley, R-Truth, Goldust, Viktor, Konnor, Bubba Ray, D-von Dudley, Curtis Axel, Jinder Mahal, Ryback and Heath Slater)

    This is an impromptu match due to the awful attack on the future hall of famer Kurt Angle. Only key things to mention is as soon as the match began Shelton Benjamin was attacked by a figure in a hoodie who was revealed to be Rusev who took him out of the ring before throwing him into the steel steps. Security would have to get involved to stop him but the damage was done to Shelton and he no longer has a shot at double gold. The final 8 in the match would be Alberto Del Rio, Big Show, Enzo Amore, Xaiver Woods,Curtis Axel, Heath Slater, Ryback and Goldust.

    Del Rio and Big Show are battling in one corner whilst Enzo and Xaiver Woods are having a battle in another corner. That leaves Goldust on his own whilst Ryback is battling with two of the former members of the social outcasts in Curtis Axel and Heath Slater. They are trying to take down the bigger man but they are struggling until Ryback is able to take both down with a meat hook clothesline before he picks both men up hitting Shellshock to BOTH MEN! He then picks up both men throwing them out of the ring:

    Eliminated by Ryback: Curtis Axel and Heath Slater (8:13)

    Ryback stands by the ropes mocking the crowd doing a feed me more chant when Goldust sneaks up behind him low blowing Ryback before throwing him over the top rope leaving us down to 5 men.

    Eliminated by Goldust: Ryback (8:39)

    With 5 men left in the ring we have Goldust go over to help Del Rio with Big Show. Meanwhile whilst this is going on Xaiver Woods and Enzo Amore are having fun with each other. Big Show is able to put up a good fight before he hits Del Rio with a choke slam and then hits a KO punch to Goldust throwing him out of the ring.

    Eliminated by Big Show: Goldust (9:13)

    This leaves us at the final 4 with Enzo and Xaiver Woods stop their battle to go take down Big Show seeing him as clearly the biggest threat left in the match. Enzo and Xaiver Woods both try to take on Big Show but Big Show takes both men down with a chop to the their chests. However Del Rio hits Big Show from behind with a step up enzurgi. He then starts to try to tip Big Show over but is not able to do it until Enzo and Xaiver help as they lift Big Show up and over taking Big Show out of the match.

    Eliminated by Del Rio, Xaiver Woods and Enzo Amore: Big Show (10:32)

    Del Rio however goes on the attack almost immediately with him taking down Enzo with a super kick leaving just Woods on his feet facing off against Woods here. Woods here goes for a DDT onto Del Rio but Del Rio counters locking in the cross armbreaker here trying to do as much damage to Woods's arm as possible making it harder for Woods to throw Del Rio out of the ring. Del Rio keeps it locked in even though Woods is tapping until he feels happy with the damage he has done and lets go. He then goes towards Enzo Amore who is starting to rise in the ring but he seems ready for Alberto Del Rio. Del Rio comes at him going for another superkick but Enzo dodges it and sends Del Rio over the top rope! However Del Rio does not go over the rope hanging onto the top rope as he goes and resting on the ring apron.

    He goes after Xaiver Woods hitting a running dropkick going for Woods's arm looking to cause more pain as he acts super cocky like he does popping the crowd when Del Rio comes up behind him and hits him with a super kick. Wood sthen goes to grab Del Rio throw him over but the pain in his arm is to much as Del Rio sends him crashing the floor leaving us down to two men.

    Eliminated by Del Rio: Xaiver Woods (12:09)

    We are down to 2 men now as Enzo Amore and Alberto Del Rio are left in this match. Alberto Del Rio toys with Enzo almost mocking the man hoping to inflict some more pain onto the Enzo. He throws Enzo into corner before going for the step-up enzugiri and connecting. He then goes to pick Enzo but Enzo punches Del Rio sending him back. Del Rio though goes for a kick over the top rope but Enzo dodges it countering into a hurricanrana sending Alberto Del Rio out of the ring meaning Enzo Amore is in the World title tournament instead.

    Eliminated by Enzo Amore :Alberto Del Rio (13:02)

    Spoiler:


    Winner: Enzo Amore (13:02)

    Enzo recovers in the ring as Alberto Del Rio post-match slides back in the ring and teases attacking the cocky Enzo but instead weirdly offers Enzo a handshake which Enzo accepts. At this point Del Rio leaves the area as we get Charly Caruso coming into the ring as she questions Enzo Amore about how he feels. Enzo talks about being excited at the chance to face his best friend in the final and that Samoa Joe better go back to NXT as Enzo Amore is going to go all the way because he is a certificated G and a bona fide stud and you can't teach that. HOW YOU DOING!

    We cut to the backstage area where we see Shelton Benjamin holding his US title as he is going mental backstage looking for Rusev after Rusev cost him a chance to take his friends place in the tournament. Shelton is going mental until Foley comes up to tell him that Rusev is gone from the arena. He tells Shelton that they left the building. He also tells Shelton that he is going to cancel the rematch for the US title to punish Rusev for his actions tonight. Shelton however tells him not to. He says tomorrow night he wants to do what Rusev did to his mentor and friend ending Rusev's quest for the US title once and for all but he promises he will leave just enough for his mentor Angle to finish off.

    We have cut elsewhere as we can see the pre-show panel discussing Shelton's words about Rusev. Jerry Lawler makes a comment saying that Shelton may regret that as he has never seen Rusev so fired up. We then cut to Booker T who hypes up the main show by telling everyone to get ready as the first match of the main show is coming up next as Sami Zayn faces off against Cedric Alexander.

    Main show:

    Last 16: Sami Zayn vs Cedric Alexander

    Cedric Alexander and Sami Zayn will both put on a great match leaving everything in the ring.The match is hyped as a meeting of two men who knew each other in Ring Of Honour but never faced 1 on 1 with the early stages is both men feeling each other out a little with Sami going for the quick pinfall opportunities when he can do as he knows he needs to win this in as quick of a time as possible.

    As the match goes into the middle section of the match they fight each other going into high gear as they both go back and forth hitting each other with big moves with Zayn trying to get Cedric in position for the Hulleva kick and Cedric trying to get off the lumbar check on Sami Zayn as both men know they need to win as quickly as they can but neither can quite finish the other one off as we get to the closing stages of the match.

    Closing sequence: Cedric Alexander hits Zayn with a belly to belly suplex before going for the pin. However Sami Zayn kicks out at 2 as Cedric thinks about what move to do next as he thinks through how to finish Zayn off and advance to the next round. He moves to the top rope as he gets ready to go for overtime as he climbs to the top. He goes for overtime but nobody is home! Zayn dodges before hitting Cedric with an exploder suplex into the turnbuckles setting him up for the Hulleva kick. He charges going for the Hulleva kick and connects before covering Cedric for the 3 count and advancing to the quarterfinals.


    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Sami Zayn (18:08)



    Post-match we can see Sami Zayn just starting to recover from his match. He goes over to the man he just beat and offers him a handshake. Cedric gets up and shakes Zayn's hand with a nice show of respect between the two men.

    Last 16: Big Cass vs Finn Balor

    The next match is a bit of a David versus Goliath though this time everyone wants the Goliath to squash the cocky David in this match as Finn takes on Big Cass. There is no Enzo at ringside with Big Cass as he has his own match which he needs to get ready for so Big Cass is hereby himself against the rock and rolla leader of the club Finn Balor.

    This match starts off with Finn Balor playing keep away from Big Cass and trying to get shots in when he can knowing he is facing a much bigger opponent. Finn gets in shots when he can but knows how much trouble he could be in if he gets in close. When Big Cass does get in close however Finn uses an eye rake to make Cass let go of him which the ref does not see.

    Finn uses this to work over the leg of the big man to try to get him off his feet for as long as he can so he hit the Coup D'grace. He works over Big Cass's leg hitting him kicks to the leg. Cass is able to get him off him though before hitting Balor with some sizeable moves. The match carries on with Big Cass trying to him big power moves onto Big Cass whilst Finn keeps playing keep away and targeting the legs to take the big man off his feet even at one point smashing his leg into the ring post.


    Closing sequence: Big Cass hits Finn with a big pavement slam after finally managing to get his hands on him but starts to feel massive pain in his leg. He ignores it and goes for a running Big Boot but Finn dodges it before going for a dropkick to the leg of Big Cass sending the big man to the ground again. Finn then smirks before climbing to the top rope and hitting coup d'grace. He then covers Big Cass and gets the 3 count advancing to the next round of the World title tournament.

    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Finn Balor (8:54)



    Last 16: Damien Sandow vs Cody Rhodes

    Pre-match both men shake hands with each other as they show respect for each other by shaking hands. They start off with a standard lock-up with each other but with both men feeling each other out in the opening. Cody is able to get an early roll up but Sandow kick out at two. Sandow smirks saying you beat me to that as the match carries on with both men countering each other a lot as they know each other inside out.

    As the match carries on Sandow shows he intelligence using “cheap”tactics to try to gain the upper hand on his friend as well as showing how much he wants to win whilst Cody tries to use what he has learned from his dad to win. Both men hitting all of their non finisher moves leaving nothing to spare as both men are desperate to pick up the win here.


    Match sequence: Cody Rhodes is waiting for Sandow to rise. As Damien Sandow rises Cody Rhodes get ready jumping off the ropes before going for the Beautiful Disaster kick. Sandow is able to see this coming and is able to dodge it before hitting Cody with a discuss elbow smash to the face. He then goes to cover Cody but he kicks out at the count of 2. He then stands over Cody think about his next move before going for the Elbow of disdain which he is able to connect onto Cody.

    He then waits for Cody to rise as he goes for You're Welcome but Cody is able to slip out before countering into Cross Rhodes looking for the win but Sandow is able to quickly escape and rolls Rhodes up! 1 2 Cody rolls through 1 2! Sandow however rolls through this time and getting a 1 2 ….. Cody rolls through once again 1 2 3! He uses Sandow's own roll up against him!


    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Cody Rhodes (11:11)

    Post-match Rhodes gets up and offers Damien Sandow a handshake after the match to his friend. Sandow however says not to the handshake before giving Cody a hug as Samoa Joe starts to make his entrance to the ring as the Rhodes Scholars head to the back we see a stare down between Rhodes and Joe teasing a later confrontation in the tournament if Cody can beat Zayn and Joe makes it to the semi-final?

    Last 16: Samoa Joe vs Enzo Amore

    Enzo Amore makes his entrance next hyping himself up with his I am a bona fide G and Certified Stud and you can't teach that. He makes fun of Joe as he makes his way to the ring as Joe stares him down with a look of pure rage. He carries on by mocking Joe's weight calling him an eating machine before promising to beat him on the way to facing his boy Big Cass in the fina.... Annoyed by Enzo's cockiness Joe charges at him beating him down. The ref gets him off before Joe screams start the match!

    Joe batters him pounding Enzo in the corner before throwing him across the ring like a toy. Enzo can barely stand after the early attack by Joe. Joe goes for Enzo grabbing hold of him locking in the Coquina clutch to Enzo. Enzo tries to get out but it is too late as Joe holds on as Enzo passes out.


    Spoiler:


    Winner via submission: Samoa Joe (1:16)


    Joe holds onto the choke after the match with the ref having to tell him to let go before the ref threatens to reverse the decision which prompts Joe to let go as Joe heads up the ramp as Enzo needs help as he slowly recovers from being choked out by Samoa Joe.

    We cut to backstage as Foley is seen shaking his head as HHH comes up behind him. HHH makes a comment about all the attacks happening to legends like Angle saying Foley needs to make sure his superstars are saying in line. Foley fires back to HHH telling him if he wants advice on how to run his show he will ask someone who did not have the entire roster walk out on him. HHH gets angry before faking a smile telling Foley that Steph will only put up with so much chaos.


    Last 16: Chris Jericho vs Cesaro

    Chris Jericho makes his way out to a mixed reaction seemingly struggling a little with his leg as he makes his way down to the ring. He seems to be struggling a bit here as he makes his way to the ring. Cesaro makes his usual entrance to the ring before the match starts with Jericho going straight for the codebeaker at the start with Cesaro blocking his attempt at it showing Jericho being desperate to make this match as quick as possible due to his veteran experience. Cesaro takes control and targets Jericho leg noticing how much pain he is going for it from the start hoping to get a nice easy win here in the first round.

    Closing sequence: Jericho hits Cesaro with an enzguiri to the head before looking to lock in the walls of Jericho onto Cesaro. He locks it in but Cesaro is able to make it to the ropes just about. Jericho is forced to let go due to this but shortly after he charges after Cesaro. Cesaro dodges out of the way causing Jericho to hit the ropes before he gets hit with an uppercut from Cesaro sending him to the floor.

    Cesaro then drags Jericho the centre of the ring before he starts doing the swing to massive pop from the crowd. He does it for a decent amount of time with the crowd getting to the count of ten. He then lets go of Jericho before moving in and locks in the sharpshooter to Jericho! Jericho tries to fight out but in the end he has to tap out due to the damage done and the injury to his leg meaning Cesaro advances to the quarter finals of the World title tournament.
    Spoiler:


    Winner via submission: Cesaro (7:20)


    Post-match Jericho has to be helped up as he seems to be struggling with his leg before calling the ref a stupid idiot as he makes his way to the back slowly limping as he goes to the back.

    Last 16: Big E vs Wade Barrett

    This match has both the New Day at ringside as well as Nick Aldis here as Big E and Barrett are supported by their teammates here as they look to book a place in the quarter finals of this tournament. Both men brawl here using their strength to try to take each other down and crush their foe. Nick Aldis mostly stays out of the match like the New Day mostly cause he knows they have a 2 to 1 advantage at ringside.

    However as the match goes on you can sense the fact that Big E is starting to take control of the match and Nick Aldis sees that he may have to to do something to turn the tides in this encounter in his teammates favour.


    Closing sequence: Big E is in control of the match here hitting Wade Barrett with a belly to booty taking Wade Barrett off of his feet as Big E keeps control of this match. Big E then goes to hit a running splash running towards the ropes. However as he gets to the ropes Nick Aldis trips Big E up! Nick Aldis gets admonished by the referee for his actions as he acts all innocent.

    At this point we see Kofi get into Nick Aldis's face about this whilst Xaiver Woods sneaks up behind him. Kofi then moves out the way faking being scared off Aldis whilst Woods sneaks up behind him and hits him with a shining wizard taking the big man off of his feet. Meanwhile in the ring Barrett has recovered first ignoring the drama in the ring and gets ready to hit Big E with the bullhammer. However he charges but miss before Big E hits him with his running shoulder block. He then drags Wade Barrett up onto his shoulder before hitting the Big Ending for the 3 count and advances to the quarter finals.

    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Big E(9:18)

    Post-match the New Day stay at ringside as Roman Reigns makes his way down to the ring looking cocky as hell as he ignores the heat from the crowd still acting like a babyface makes his way into the ring to face off against Kofi.


    Last 16: Roman Reigns vs Kofi Kingston

    Big E stays at ringside for this match as he takes over the role of cheerleader that Kofi had during the previous match as he sees his friend take on one of the toughest challenges he has ever faced in his life. This match is a very good match with Reigns controlling the match using his power and skill but Kofi is able to keep kicking out.As the match goes on Reigns is getting more and more cocky. He starts playing to the crowd which gets heat from them as they have no interest in cheering for Reigns.

    In the ringside area Woods and Big E stay out of the match just sticking to cheering on their teammate at ringside. They do occasionally insult Reigns but Reigns mostly ignore them for the most part with the occasional taunts back in the direction on the New Day even saying at one point saying he will beat Big E's ass later on in the tournament if he can make it that far.


    Closing sequence: Reigns is at the other side of the ring seemingly waiting for Kofi to rise as he gets ready to go for the superman punch. He charges at Kofi going for the Superman punch but Kofi is able to dodge before connecting with a dropkick to face of Reigns. He covers Reigns but is only able to get a two count.

    Kofi then thinks what to do next as he is cheered on by his partners at ringside as Woods starts to play Francsea 2 for him to get him amped up. Kofi then runs the ropes before going for the boom boom drop however as he runs off the first rope he gets hit with a SUPERMAN punch to the face by REIGNS. Reigns then covers Kofi 1 2 … KICKOUT.


    Reigns is now getting wound up wondering what it will take to keep the veteran down. He pounds the mat as he looks to set up for the spear once again as Woods starting shout New Day rocks and jumps on the apron playing Francsea 2 shouting for Kofi to get up get up. At this point Reigns gets annoyed and runs over the apron before hitting a leaping clothesline sending Woods to the floor. Reigns then shouts keep your mouth shut.

    He then turns around getting ready to finish off Kofi when he gets hit with trouble in paradise! He covers Roman Reigns 1 2 ….. Kick out! Reigns is able to kick out at 2! Kofi has his heads in shock that his trouble in paradise was not enough to put away Roman. Kofi then climbs to the top rope. He gets ready to hit Reigns with a crossbody off of the top rope however Reigns hits him with a palm strike knocking him out of the air.


    Reigns then stands over Kofi looking to pick him up. He starts trash talking Kofi as he picks him up looking to hit him with his signature crucifix power-bomb. However as he picks Kofi up Kofi grabs a hold of him countering the Powerbomb attempt and takes him off his feet with the SOS!! 1 2 …. 3!!! KOFI KINGSTON HAS ELIMINATED ROMAN REIGNS FROM THE WORLD TITLE TOURNAMENT!!!

    Roman kicks out at 3.01 but it is not enough as Kofi has stunned Roman Reigns here and advances into the Quarter finals to face off against Finn Balor giving him a chance of revenge against the leader of the Club, the man who helped his fellow Club members steal their tag team titles. Kofi jumps onto Big E and hugs him as they all head to back celebrating this massive win for Kofi possibly one of the biggest of his career as we cut back into the ring as Reigns sits down in the ring seemingly unable to process what just happened as Seth Rollins makes his way out to the ring for his first round match.

    Last 16: Braun Strowman vs Seth Rollins

    Seth Rollins makes his way out to the ring to a decent pop from the crowd as Roman Reigns starts to make his way up from the ring floor clearly still angry and upset that he has lost out on his chance to get the World title once again. However as he slides out of the ring he sees Seth Rollins and something in him just snaps. He spears the hell out of Seth Rollins as he makes his way to the ring before snarling as the crowd shower him with tons of heat for this attack.

    However he does not stop there before picking up Seth and pounding him repeatedly in the face. He gets about 10 or so shots into the face of Seth before throwing him into the ring apron. He then waits for Seth to stumble forward before hitting him with a superman punch to the face. He then waits for Seth to rise again before hitting him with another spear leaving Rollins laid out totally on the ringside floor.

    After the second spear to Seth Rollins HHH's music hits as he makes his way down to the ring leading a team of security down to the ring as they try to make sure that Rollins is OK after the brutal attack he has just suffered. Reigns goes through the crowd avoiding the security as the heat carries on towards him for his actions as HHH tends to his student at ringside.


    HHH helps Rollins up telling him he can get the match delayed so he can recover before he has to face the monster Braun Strowman. Rollins says no he will prove himself and beat the monster. HHH tries to convince him not to do this but Rollins says he won't give Reigns the satisfaction of causing him to delay his match.

    HHH leaves the ringside area clearly showing concern for Rollins but knows that he is not going to listen. As soon as HHH has made his way to the back Braun makes his way out to the ring. Rollins is struggling to stand but he refuses to back down from the monster among men.

    Rollins going straight at the monster knowing he has to end this quickly but Strowman very quickly grabs holds of him hitting him with a side walkslam. He then covers Rollins but Rollins kicks out at 2! Strowman looks a little surprised but smirks clearly happy he can cause even more damage to Seth.

    He carries on beating down on Seth pounding him in the corner but Rollins is able to after a while counter dodging Strowman before hitting with a corner forearm to the face before he grabs Strowman in position and connects with the pedigree!!! He covers the monster 1 2…..

    KICKOUT!

    Seth holds his head in shock that he could not put the monster away with the pedigree. He ponders his next move but then climbs to the top rope knowing he has to go high risk to stand any chance of putting away the monster for good. He climbs to the top rope looking to hit the Phoenix Splash. He goes for it and NO ONE is home. Braun then picks up Seth and hits him with the running powerslam. However Braun can see a tiny bit of fight left in Seth. He picks up Seth Rollins and hits him with another running Powerslam before covering him for the 3 count.

Corey Graves then makes comment that this is the new era that Stephanie has promised for the WWE and tonight we get a new fresh champion to be the face of Monday Night Raw. We the cut towards the ring as Cesaro makes his entrance for his quarter final match.


    Quarter final: Samoa Joe vs Cesaro

    Both men sort of had it easier then some of the other did in the first round with Cesaro having an injured Jericho in his first round match whilst Joe disposed of Enzo with ease in the first round meaning this match ends up going for a good while with both men showing just a taste of what they can do in the ring. The match in the early stages seems to be controlled by Joe who uses his power to stay in control of the match but as it goes along Cesaro uses his European uppercut to get back into the match once again. However as the match goes on you can see that Joe has started to wear down the Swiss Superman and Cesaro is struggling to keep up with monster that is Samoa Joe.

    Closing sequence: Samoa Joe has Cesaro on the ground before hitting him with a german suplex. He however holds on hitting him with another one before going for a third german holding on this time expecting that to be enough but Joe only is able to get a 2 count. Joe looks frustarted with the lasting power of the Swiss superman before stalking him seemingly getting ready to lock in the Coquina Clutch however Cesaro smashes him in the face with an European Uppercut! Cesaro sends Samoa Joe flying back with a brutal uppercut as always before going for diving cross body taking Joe off of his feet.

    Cesaro gets to his feet before making the swing sign to the crowd as he gets them hyped up for the Cesaro swing but he struggles to lift Samoa Joe off his feet but he gets him up and gets 4 or 5 rotations in before he drops Samoa Joe and then locks in the Sharpshooter to Samoa Joe.He locks it in tight hoping to make the Samoa submission machine tap out but Joe is clawing to the ropes knowing how much this match means even if he is a heel.

    He finally makes it to the ropes forcing Cesaro to have to break the hold on him as Cesaro tries to think about what to do next to defeat the big man. He waits for Joe to stir a big before dragging him over as he goes to hit the Neutralizer taking the big man off his feet! However Joe is able to escape and counter putting Cesaro in place for the muscle buster hitting Cesaro with it. 1 2 3 Samoa Joe moves onto the SEMI FINAL.

    Winner via pinfall: Samoa Joe (13:22)


    Quarter final: Sami Zayn vs Cody Rhodes

    Zayn looks pretty knackered before this match whilst Cody is also not looking 100% with both men having long matches in the first round.This match ends up going for a decent amount of time as well as both men are desperate to make it to the top of the card knowing this is potentially the biggest nights of their career.

    Cody plays the more of a heelish role throughout the match due to the fact that Sami is the underdog from the underground but does not resort to any dirty tactics to try to win this match instead just keeping up the assault on Zayn and picking up the win. Cody even does a few moves that are stolen from his brother's arsenal like the back bodydrop counter Goldust used to do. Meanwhile Zayn tries to stay into the match hitting big moves when he can but knows he has his back up against the wall.

    Closing sequence: Cody stalks Sami before going for the beautiful Disaster kick and he connects to the face of Sami Zayn before he covers him. 12 Sami kicks out! Cody however reacts very calmly as he gets ready for his next move as he goes for towards the top rope and climbs up waiting for Zayn to rise before hitting with a moonsault. He covers Sami again but Zayn is able to kick out again at 2.

    Cody holds his head not sure what he needs to do as he looks down at Zayn before hitting him in the leg before locking in a modified figure four leg-lock which Micheal Cole nicknames the American nightmare as he tries to get Zayn to tap out wrenching the hold in however Zayn refuses to give up before getting free by hitting Rhodes repeatedly in the face and breaking out. He holds his leg but tries to get some feeling back into it.


    Zayn gets up as Cody goes for his leg but Zayn sees it coming jumping over Rhodes before hitting him with a tornado DDT. Sami then recovers whilst trying to get some feeling back into his leg waiting for Rhodes to rise as he hits him with an exploder suplex into the turnbuckle before connecting with a Hulleva kick to the face. He then covers Cody for the 3 count picking up the win.

    Quarter final: Kofi Kingston vs Finn Balor

    Finn Balor has a mic in his hand before the match starts and he complains about the New Day being at ringside whilst his boys are banned from ringside saying he cannot trust these guys to not rob him of his rightful place in the semi final of the World title tournament. He says however he will overcome the odds like a true rock and rolla before he helps his boys keep their titles tomorrow night as the Club once again conquer all.

    Kofi as soon as the match starts goes on the attack looking to shut the mouthy challenger up for good but Balor is able to get back in control with an eye poke showing that he will use whatever dirty tactics needed to win this match. Balor also plays it a bit slower then usual using his experience from tournaments in Japan when he competed in things like the best of the super juniors to conserve some energy.

    New Day stay out of the match just sticking to cheering on the outside as Big E cheers on his friend knowing that they would be having a match in the semi-final if Kofi wins and he gets past Braun Strowman. Meanwhile during the match the cheap tactics mean the heel Finn takes control as he starts to go for big moves as the match goes on knowing that he either faces a monster in the semi final or a powerhouse in Big E.


    Closing sequence: Finn Balor smirks as he hits Kofi with with a slingblade before going for the cover. 1 2 Kick out. Kofi kicks out at 2. Finn however goes for another cover which Corey mentions as him trying to make sure Kofi exerts more energy on the next kick out which again Kofi kicks out at 2. He then waits for Kofi to rise before going for a front dropkick sending Kofi into the turnbuckle in the corner.

    He then goes for a Pele kicks connecting with it to the head of Kofi. He goes to the ring ropes instead of focusing on Kofi going over to the ring apron and mocking Big E and Woods who are watching at ringside. He does the two sweet taunt taking his eye off the ball acting like the cocky prick he has been since his heel turn.

    He turns around going back to taking on Kofi when Kofi connects with TROUBLE IN PARADISE. 1 2 3!!! Finn Balor own ego has cost him this match and Kofi moves onto the semi-final of the World tournament and is 2 matches away from becoming World champion!

    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Kofi Kingston (12:23)


    Post-match Balor wakes up as he see New Day celebrating outside the ring and storms off up the ramp clearly angry that he has lost out on his opportunity to become World champion.

    Whilst on the outside New Day celebrate we cut to the backstage area where Carly Caruso is as she catches Reigns as he is making his way to the car park. She asks him why he did what he did to Seth Rollins. Reigns smirks saying why? WHY? Why do I need to explain why I did what I did to that man after he robbed me of my moment at Mania? Robbed me of my title? Stabbed me in the back? It is clear why I did. These fans want to hate me? I will give them a reason to hate me. BELIEVE DAT

    Quarter final: Braun Strowman vs Big E

    We come back to the ringside area as Big E is now in the ring with his New Day buddys as they hype him up making jokes whilst Big E for once seems serious knowing what he is about to face. Braun makes his way to the ring with Woods and Kingston sliding out of the ring wishing him luck and Kofi tells him he better see him in the next round.

    Both men battle and it is a brawl between the two heavyweight here as both men try to out power each other. In the end after the start of the match Strowman does take control of the match using his power and devastation to start pounding down on Big E.

    Closing Sequence: Strowman is still pounding away on Big E's back before he picks him up and hits him with a brutal chokeslam to the back before getting a 2 count. Strowman seems unfazed as he picks up Big E but Big E pushes him off before hitting him with his running Body Block sending Strowman to the floor.

    He then heads to the ropes again going for the running splash to Strowman. He covers the monster but Strowman kicks out at 2 with authority. Big E tries to think what he can do to finish the monster before pulling down the straps getting ready to lift the monster up for the BIG ENDING. He waits for the monster to rise picking him up but Strowman is able to fight out of it. Strowman then gets Big E into the position for the running powerslam and then covers Big E. 1 2 3 Braun Strowman advances to the semi final.


    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Braun Strowman (8:04)


    Post-match Big E is down when Braun starts to attack Big E pointing to Kofi on the outside saying this is your fate! He is about to carry on when Woods and Kofi make their way into the ring to save their friend from the assault being given to him. Woods however gets taken out straightaway being grabbed by the neck before being dropped with a chokeslam. Kofi jumps onto the big man but Strowman is able to get him off before pounding him in the corner when Stephanie McMahon makes her way out to boos from the crowd.

    Stephanie makes her way out to the ring and says since you are fighting in the ring right now why wait for the semi-final when we can have it right now! She tells the ref to ring the bell and start this match.

    Semi-final: Kofi Kingston vs Braun Strowman

    The match starts off with Braun going on the attack pounding down on Kofi Kingston due to the shock of what Stephanie announced but Strowman is very tired due to have wrestled one match just now. He is pounding down on the veteran whilst at ringside the New Day are fairly quiet as they are still recovering from the attack at the start of the match though Woods does not seem to be there.

    Kofi does start to get back into the match but is again taken down by Strowman who gets him the corner though with the ref warning him on a regular basis to watch his temper as he is regularly pushing the 5 count to the limit and tells him if he does it again he will be DQ'd. Strowman however is keeping up the aggression here on Kofi. Big E meanwhile on the outside starts to recover as Kofi can be seen mouthing something to his friend.

    Closing sequence: Kofi is trying to fend off the monster among men but is struggling to cope with his power but no matter what he refuses to stay down for a 2 count knowing this could be his last chance at a World title. Strowman tries to pick Kofi up again but Kofi is able to grab him by the head using a head scissors technique and sends both of them tumbling down to the ringside floor below.


    Strowman gives chase to Kofi as they go around the ring with Kofi using his speed to get ahead of Strowman before doing a jumping crossbody off of the steel steps onto the monster Braun Strowman. Kofi gets up very quickly as the ref in the ring counting to 3 so far. He thinks about his next move and goes to do the Boom Drop but instead of running the ropes just does it to him on the outside.

    He however does not think that will be enough to take down the monster as he waits for the beast to rise before when he gets up before going for a trouble in paradise to the monster and goes for it! However as Strowman rises he dodges out of the way of the kick. The count is now at 7 as Strowman goes for a clothesline which Kofi dodges ducking under the beast's swinging before feeling off round the corner. Strowman charges after him as the ref gets to 8, he charges into Big E who is just cheering on at ringside (on purpose cause Strowman is a dick as Kofi slides in the ring. Strowman tells Big E to not get in his way trash talking as the ref is getting to 9 as Strowman looks like he is going to get in the ring but he seems to stopping for some reason.... as we here the ref count to 10 we cut down to the ringside apron as we see XAIVER WOODS'S hands holding onto the leg of STROWMAN!!! The ref calls for the bell counting out the monster meaning KOFI KINGSTON IS INTO THE FINAL!

    Post-match Strowman goes mental dragging Woods out from under the ring asking what the hell he was doing before punching him in the mouth as he goes mental. He then goes to carry on the assault when Kofi Kingston slides out of the ring. He waits for Strowman to turn around after getting his attention as Woods crawls towards Francsea 2. Kofi waits as Strowman turns and clocks him with trouble in paradise!!! Woods meanwhile as the beast stumbles hits him with Francsea 2!!! But then the beast turns to Big E who sends him down to the ground with the BIG ENDING as the New Day head up the ramp with Kofi having seen off the monster Braun Strowman and now one match away from becoming WORLD CHAMPION.

    Semi Final: Samoa Joe vs Sami Zayn

    Zayn comes into the match and is limping as he makes his way to the ring selling his leg injury as he makes his way to face the monster who is a little tired from earlier on in the tournament but does not show it whilst Zayn looks like he is on his feet here as he stands in the ring.


    However as soon as the match starts Joe goes on the attack like the monster he is targeting the leg right from the start and making it hard for Zayn to sustain any sort of comeback as he goes into this match. Zayn is trying to put up a fight but gets cut off at every chance making the fans really get behind Zayn in this match wanting him to make the final.

    Closing sequence: Zayn is starting to get a little momentum going in this match hitting Joe with a leg lariat taking the monster to the floor but has to grab hold of his leg due to the pain he is in after doing the move to the beast. He however gets up first before making his way up the the top rope figuring he has to go high risk to have any chance of putting Joe down for good.

    He climbs to the top rope before hitting Samoa Joe with a diving crossbody connecting to Samoa Joe. He pins him but only gets a 2 count. Zayn however is starting to gain a bit of confidence as the match goes along as he waits for Joe to rise calling for him to getup before waiting for Joe to charge at him before hitting him and Exploder suplex into the turnbuckle in the corner.


    He then goes for the Hulleva kick as he charges towards the Samoan submission machine. He goes for it and … JOE DODGES out of the way sending Zayn's foot into the turnbuckle causing even more damage to it as Sami Zayn clutches his leg in non-stop pain. This allows Joe to take advantage. Joe comes up behind Zayn and locks in the coquina clutch. He locks it in tight and look to have Zayn in a position he can not escape from however Zayn is able to get his foot to the rope causing the ref to call for a rope break as he struggles in the hold. Joe lets go of the choke but waits for Zayn to rise before grabbing him and hitting the muscle buster. 1 2 3 Zyan after putting up a hell of a fight is out in the semis and JOE MOVES ONTO THE FINAL!

    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Samoa Joe (12:24)


    We cut to the backstage area as the New Day are watching with Kofi as they see who Kofi has to face in the final. Big E makes a joke saying now I am out you have to do this for me before making some lame meme reference. Kofi smirks saying with power of positivity he will beat Joe and win the title he never has won before in his career THE WORLD TITLE. Woods says that New Day will be the World champions with Kofi starting off the NEW DAY ROCKS chant.


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

    A nice fun match between two of the more bitchy women on the roster even if Sasha Banks is a face. Bliss spends a lot of the match using whatever dirty tactics she can come up with to defeat Sasha and gain a foothold but Sasha is able to stay in control of the match for the most part as she is clearly the stronger fighter here.

    Closing sequence: Alexa Bliss her is pulling on the hair of Sasha before getting told off by the referee for her actions. Bliss however does not care about this. She starts to stop the back of Sasha's neck looking to do some real damage to Sasha and keeping her down for the count. She then goes down in the corner and she goes to to put on the glove form her entrance that she used to hit Becky with to earn this title shot against The Boss!

    However the ref sees this wary of the trick that Bliss has pulled on the regular recently confiscating the glove from her and going to give it to the timekeeper. However as the ref takes the glove away to give t othe time keeper she grabs another glove out of her boots before getting ready to place it on her hand when Sasha grabs it before smacking Bliss across the face with the metal glove!


    Bliss is out cold with a taste of her own medicine. Banks throws the glove out the ring before the ref turns around before she locks in the bank statement facing away from the ropes. Bliss is able to hold on for a good 15 seconds but in the end has to tap out and Sasha Banks retains her Women's title.

The New Day makes their way out to a very loud pop from the crowd as Kofi makes his way down to the ring as his Boys cheering him on as he makes his way into the ring.Samoa Joe then makes his way out to mostly heat with a few smarks cheering the monster. Samoa Joe looks the fresher of the two with Kofi having have gone through Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman on his way to the final.

    Joe is able to take control of the match very early on in the match with him using his power to cut off Kofi at every opportunity whilst Kofi when he does get in control of the match uses his agility to escape from the power of Joe and wear the beast down looking for a way to get a 3 count quickly as he knows the beast is a lot more fresh then he is.


    Closing sequence: Joe thinks he has this match locked up as he hits another suplex to Kofi sending him to the floor. He then gets ready to lock in the Coquina Clutch looking to finish this match off. However as he goes for it Kofi counters it hitting Samoa Joe with the SOS!!!

    Re: WWE: A different future

    Backstage news:


    Kurt Angle sent to rehab


    Kurt Angle has been sent to rehab for alcoholism due to a relapse and was written off TV on Sunday. The original plan was for the attack to write him off for a couple of weeks before he returned to fight for the World title at Survivor Series against Samoa Joe before carrying on his feud with Rusev but due to this new development he will not be back for the foreseeable future and means WWE will have to change a number of plans tonight and for Survivor Series.

    Chris Jericho out with leg injury

    Meanwhile Chris Jericho picked up thigh strain meaning Chris Jericho will behaving to take some time off as well. The original plans were for him to cheat to beat Cesaro last night before facing off against Cesaro in a 2 out of 3 falls match at Survivor Series. However due to the injury he sustained in the build up to Backlash he will have to take 4 to 6 weeks off. He will spend this time doing some recording with his band Fozzy as the current plans are for Jericho to leave short after Wrestlemania. There was rumours that he would be Shinsuke's first feud on the main roster but that may be tweaked or delayed due to this knock and Shinsuke may appear on the Monday night roster at a later date.


    Charlotte out with torn calf

    In the final injury news coming out of Backlash Charlotte suffered a torn calf on the pre-show match ruling her out of action for an estimated 9 months which comes as bad news as Charlotte even after losing her title was expected to still be a big part of the Women's division feuding with Emma over the next few months as well as starting a new alliance with Carmella. The original ending had Charlotte winning via Carmella but due to the injury sustained through the match they called an audible and Emma won instead. Expect Carmella and Alexa Bliss to get a bigger push due to the loss of one of the top women in the division on the heel side.

    Tyson Kidd's return

    Many people consider it a miracle that Tyson Kidd has been able to return to the WWE and it is in truth. He has been able to recover from his career ending injury but WWE are at the same time being very cautious about his condition due to the injury he sustained from Joe. WWE have brought him back whilst making sure he is checked up on a week to week basis to help the Cruiserweight division get off to a good start by having another known name on the roster as a part of it.

    Bray Wyatt and The Miz rebuilding

    Bray Wyatt and The Miz have been seen by people backstage as two heel who need to be rebuilt back up. Expect both men on Smackdown to slowly get rebuilt in the coming months with both men expected to be a big part of the future plans on Smackdown Live with backstage already impressive with Miz's IC title run and feel like he can go strength to strength in coming weeks.

    The match at No Mercy over the IC title is part of the bigger plans for both the Miz and Bray with Bray playing the face role just for this feud but expect him to resume being a heel once again as soon as this match is over no matter the outcome of the match. Expect the Bryan and Miz feud to carry on Smackdown as WWE feel Bryan's overness with crowd and Miz's natural hate-ability. Bray however will have his own path as they slowly bring him back to what he could have been as WWE look to take away a lot of the supernatural stuff and go back to the crazy cult leader.


    Breezedango push

    Breezedango push to the tag team titles has come as a shock to some viewers with people backstage in the new creative teams as they are very big fans of their character work and feel that this team can help rebuild the tag team division in WWE as the company looks to make two strong tag division after years of not even having one strong tag division.Expect Breezedango to get quite a few backstage segments as the creative team have a lot of fun ideas for segments with these two.

    Brock Lesnar return date?

    At this present moment there is not return date set for Brock Lesnar due to issues backstage with how much Lesnar wants to be paid per appearance. They feel that after the UFC drug testing failure that his drawing power has been damaged and the creative team feel there is not many fun stories they can do with him. He is still expected to return in time for Wrestlemania if the two sides can come to an agreement but as things stand Brock Lesnar at appearance will have been the punt kick by Randy Orton at Summerslam.

    Re: WWE: A different future

    So much talent out with injury at the moment, I wonder if that’s you just writing guys out, or if you’re using EWR for injuries or something???
    ‘
    Outside of that, I’m happy to see Wyatt/Miz get repackaged, Breezango get a push, and I’m a Tyson Kidd mark.

    Despite what your notes said, Lesnar is a massive draw. I’m looking forward to seeing Lesnar get involved in a program in the months heading towards the end of the year.

    Keep at it, mate.

    All of them were EWR which was really annoying as all 3 were key part of my plans but means I have to push new people which is always fun.

    I love Tyson Kidd and missed him so bad.

    Brock is someone I have written out for the moment to save him for RTWM. Got a plan for him at Mania for sure though.

    Thank you Stojy

    Re: WWE: A different future



    September 12th:

    Samoa Joe makes his way to the ring to start the show off with his World title over his shoulder in his ring gear with a microphone in his hand. He mentions the lack of ceremony and suit. He tells the World that him becoming World title was inevitable and there is no need to celebrate what everyone knew would happen. He mentions how people were scared to bring him to WWE as they knew he would crush everyone quickly and he already has. He says whoever faces him for this title shall fall. He is about to carry on when the New Day make their way out to the ring.

    Big E makes a joke about Joe looking sour and should be feeling the power after the helping hand he got from Braun Strowman last night. Kofi says last night if not for Strowman attacking his friends he would be World champion. Joe however smirks saying this is why friends get in the way. I keep my friends outside of the company. Everyone here is here to fall before me. Woods says tonight they will get their tag titles back from the Club but they are not done with the bringing the World title to the New Day. Joe smirks in the ring say anytime any place. However before anything else can happen Braun Strowman makes his way out to the ring.

    He has a microphone telling the New Day they robbed him off his shot at the title so he crushed them and will do it again right now. Kofi tells Strowman he got outsmarted and should go take some more venom and go back to breaking Batman's back. Strowman just responds that I am not done with you yet striding back down to the ring. He climbs in as New Day stand in the ring ready to fight him.

    However Samoa Joe sneaks attacks Kofi from behind clubbing him with the title as Joe joins in helping Strowman attack the New Day. They battle it out for a bit with Woods taken down quickly by Strowman with him brawling with Big E whilst Joe works over Kofi in the corner till Foley's music hits to a pop from the crowd.

    Mick Foley tells them to all stop right now. He says that New Day have a title match tonight and if these two want a fight they can take on another team tonight instead. He also says unlike last night Strowman if you interfere in anyway tonight's main event you are fired. He says next week we will find out will get a World title at Survivor Series but right now? Strowman and Joe can face off against the Hype Bros right now. New Day leave the ring with them mouthing back at Strowman and Joe as Hawkins and Ryder make their way out accompanied by Mojo Rawley.

    Match 1: Braun Strowman and Samoa Joe vs Hype Bros (Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder)

    This match ends up being fairly short as Samoa Joe and Strowman just straight up control the match beating down the pairing and even though they do not have the teamwork that the Hype Bros have, the pure power of the two monsters is too much for the pair with Joe finishing off Hawkins with the Muscle buster for the 3 count.

    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Samoa Joe (6:13)



    Post-match Samoa Joe grabs his title raising it in the air when Strowman stares at it as the the two monsters have a stare down as we go to an ad break.

    Backstage we have a segment with the New Day talking with Mick Foley saying that they want payback on Strowman saying they can beat his ass tonight and then take the title from WHO WHO WHO. HHH however come over at this point saying overestimating your own strength is a rookie mistake. He then questions why Foley is here and not running his show. Foley asks what the hell he is doing here as Woods makes a joke about his big nose. HHH says he is here to see his wife and to get an update on his student's condition. Foley informs HHH that Rollins is not here tonight recovering from the injuries he sustained and that HHH should know that since his wife is Foley's boss. HHH tells Foley that he did not due to doing his job of running his show NXT unlike Foley who seems to more obsessed with joking around with talent then running his show as HHH walks off.

    Match 2: Dana Brooke and Emma vs Carmella and Natayla

    This match is a decent tag team match with both women putting on a decent encounter with the bulk of the in ring actions carried by Emma and Natayla for obvious reasons. The ending of the match see Dana Brooke take Carmella out whilst Emma makes Natayla tap out to pick another big win in her return to the WWE.

    Spoiler:


    Winners via submission: Dana Brooke and Emma (9:54)


    Emma after the match asks her partner to grab her a microphone from ringside. Se says last night she came back and she slayed the queen of the Women's division. She says Charlotte has ruled this division for nearly a year before Emma had dethroned her. She may not have taken the Women's title from Charlotte but she took out the biggest dog in the yard and now this will be her women's division. She then talks about the Women's revolution and how if anyone started the real revolution it was her and Paige down in NXT with the 4 horsewomen just carrying on the legacy they had begun. She gets a mixed reaction for this before she says she is not bitter but happy as she relishes a challenge before calling out Sasha Banks to come out to the ring.

    Sasha Banks makes her way down to the ring a bit cautious expecting some kind of sneak attack. She gets in the ring saying she is a bit wary of being in the same ring with someone who has Dana Brooks as their sidekick. Emma says if we were going to attack we just would but would that get me a shot at that? Sasha says if she wants to be the Queen of the division that is fine but anytime she wants a shot att he Boss she is happy to throw down before holding her title in the air telling Emma to name the time and the place.

    Match3: US title No DQ match: Shelton Benjamin © vs Rusev

    We come back from the ad break for the US title match as Rusev makes his way out to the ring with Lana by his side as he looks focused and angry as hell clearly wanting his US title back. However Shelton Benjamin makes his way out next and clearly fuming wanting payback for what had happened to his friend wastes no time rushing out attacking Rusev from behind with the title as he makes his way down. However it should be noted that his ribs are taped up due to Rusev attacking him last week.

    The match starts off as a total brawl with both men not really wrestling much and just going for punches and power-shots. However after the flurry at the start and Shelton being in control Rusev gets back into the match thanks to Lana striking Shelton with a low blow from behind. This then leads to the middle part of the match where Rusev uses a chair to weaken the back of Shelton and doing tons of damage to Shelton putting the Gold standard under massive amounts of pain focusing on the neck and the back of Shelton readying the accolade to be used on Shelton. However Rusev is unable to get the 3 count. However in the finish of the match Rusev gets passed a weapon by his wife at ringside.

    Rusev looks and sees a chain that has been passed to him. Shelton jumps off the top rope going for a diving crossbody but Rusev dodges out of the way before smashing Shelton in the face with the chain. He then stands over Shelton before wrapping the chain around the neck of Shelton Benjamin. He locks in the accolade using the chain to strengthen the move and Shelton tries to fight out of it but the move is too strong causing Shelton to pass out due to the damage done meaning Rusev is a 3 TIME US CHAMPION.

    Spoiler:


    Winner via submission and NEW US CHAMPION: Rusev (17:47)



    Post-match Rusev poses over Shelton with his US title as medics come into the ring to help Shelton who has not moved since the match is over. They try to help Shelton to rise but he does not move before being loaded onto a stretcher as Rusev stands with Lana watching as his rival is carted off as he has now taken out Shelton Benjamin and Kurt Angle.

    We cut to the backstage area where we see the Club hanging out and cracking jokes whilst Finn looks very serious as he is clearly annoyed at not winning the World title last night. He tells his boys they need to focus tonight as they have a big match and they need to make sure they retain their tag team titles. However Rhodes Scholars enter the room saying that would be perfect as they have not forgotten what they did last week. Finn says that is fine as his boys can easily beat these two men who had to run away and moan about the lack of breaks to get any success. Rhodes smirks telling Finn that he has achieved greatness here whilst Finn is cocky without having proved anything to back it up.

    However before Finn can retort Enzo Amore and Big Cass walk into the room as well with Big Cass making a quip about it being crowded. Enzo says well in this room we got a couple of haters. Big Cass mentions that Rhodes Scholars are not the only ones gunning for the Club and he remembers all the cheap tricks that Balor pulled last night. Balor says all he did was use his brain. Luke Gallows says just cause Finn has one and you two have to share one between the two of you. Enzo tells The Club that they will show them why they are S A W F T and to watch them show the Club what will happen to them as soon as they get their hands on them.

    Match 4: Enzo and Cass vs Jinder Mahal and Heath Slater

    Enzo and Big Cass do a fairly short promo before the match mocking Jinder and Slater but very quickly get down to business in this match. Enzo does struggle for a decent period with Jinder showing off his new body and overpowering the little man but in the end Enzo gets the hot tag to his boy Big Cass who ends up taking down Heath Slater for the 3 count and the win.

    Spoiler:


    Winners via pinfall: Enzo and Cass (7:13)


    Braun Strowman is interviewed backstage about his actions last night before telling Mike Rome to get out of his way saying he is not finished with the New Day yet before leaving the arena into the car park.

    Pre-match Rhodes Scholars make their way out to the ring for a short promo.They mention how last night they had a war with each other with Rhodes saying he won before falling short just to Zayn but neither man is done chasing the World title just yet. He says however for the moment the Club got their attention. He tells them that they want to send a message to the roster at their expense. Well if they survive the night with the titles they are coming for them. Rhodes takes over talking about the New Day saying beating the record breaking tag team champions would place them at the top right where they belong as the Rhodes Scholars don't just want the tag team gold they want all the gold proving why they are the stars who will leave everyone in the dust.

    Before they can carry on however the Ascension make their way out to the ring to minor heat from the crowd. They say that the Rhodes Scholars ran and the Ascension will send them back to the wasteland like they belong again.

    Match 5: Rhodes Scholars vs The Ascension

    This match is fairly short with Rhodes Scholars picking up some momentum after their losses in the World title tournament before moving on. Rhodes takes out Konnor with a cross Rhodes whilst Sandow hits Viktor with You're welcome picking up the 3 count.

    Spoiler:


    Winners via pinfall: Rhodes Scholars (5:38)


    We cut to the backstage area where we see Paige limping as she is helped by her boyfriend Del Rio who tells her to take it easy. She says you know that is not my style. As this is happening we see Rusev and Lana walking through the backstage area as Lana laughing at Paige who she calls the stupid girl. Paige tells Lana to shut her mouth. Rusev then comments to Del Rio he should exchange his damaged goods though Del Rio tells Rusev to shut his mouth before he shuts it for him as Rusev walks off smirking holding his US title clearly very happy.

    Match 6: Roman Reigns vs Local Jobber (James Ellisworth)

    James Ellisworth makes his way out to the ring with a happy go lucky smile on his face as suddenly Roman Reigns's music hits and he has a face like thunder and is here for blood. He runs into the ring and hits him with a spear ending this instantly.

    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Roman Reigns (0:08)


    Reigns post match however is not done and waits for the poor guy to rise before hitting him with a superman punch to the face. He then stands over him before beating him down with punch after punch before kicking him out of the ring like a piece of trash before demanding a microphone right now.

    He grabs a microphone with some pops for the aggression he has shown with mostly heat mixed in. Reigns comments on the cheers saying oh you cheer for me now before telling everyone to shut up. He says last night he realised that there is no point trying to be the hero for your stupid kids as there will always be some jealous loser who cannot handle his greatness.

    He mentions how the crowd cheered for a bearded loser who reminds him of them in Daniel Bryan because he Reigns was better then him and managed to win the Rumble, a monster like Lesnar who only cares about hurting people whom Reigns so nearly had beat at Wrestlemania and is here for the money and that is it with Reigns smirking say well so am I but I at least pretended to give a shit about you people, Dean Ambrose someone who he stayed friends with just for them and lastly that snake in the grass Seth Rollins.

    The guy who stabbed me in the back and ruined the greatest stable of all time which was because of me as I carried those two on my BACK! Reigns is getting even more heat as his cockiness gets to new levels.He says the man then pulled off every cowardly trick in the book, tried to end that loser Edge's life just to get his mentor back in charge of this show! He stole my MOMENT AT WRESTLEMANIA and stole what should have always been mine! He then got injured like the weakling he is before I could get my payback but I am the bad guy because I got payback on him and beat him to a pulp last night? That guy has made my life a misery, been utter scum and you cheer him and boo me? Reigns then promises the crowd he will give them a reason to boo him now. He drops the mic before standing in the ring listening to the heat before making his exit to massive heat from the crowd.

    We cut to the the backstage area where we see Bliss on the phone to her boyfriend from NXT Buddy Murphy. She complains about Sasha using the glove on her and how she was robbed as Becky Lynch is cut to listening and mocking Bliss whilst Bayley starts to giggle. Bliss sees this and promises to see him later. Bliss then throws a tantrum at this telling them they are losers and just jealous that she came so close to success whilst they will never make it to the top of Raw.

    Becky laughs and tell Bliss she is just angry she got outsmarted by someone else. Bliss says Sasha cheated and robbed her. Bayley however butts in telling her that weren't you going to use the glove first. Bliss tell her to shut it when Nia Jax walks past all three women calling them pathetic as the three women stare down the monster as she walks past.

    Match 7: Cesaro vs Ryback

    This is a decent match with Ryback getting to show his power and aggression after being on a bit of a losing streak recently. In the end we have Ryback setting up Cesaro for Shellshock but Cesaro counters out of it before locking in the Neatuarliser planting Ryback down for the 3 count.

    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Cesaro (10:15)


    Post-match Ryback gets up and as he walks off he kicks the steel steps showing his frustration with his loses building up at the present moment in time.


    We see Cedric Alexander backstage working out running on a treadmill when Bo Dallas comes into the scene smiling like the douche he is. Dallas tells Cedric he was watching his performance last night and it was good. Cedric thanks him but Bo carries on saying you did lost but it is OK I know why you lost. At this point Cedric stops his treadmill to focus on what Bo wants. Bo says if he had just Bo-lieved he would have won. Cedric smirks before telling Bo that next week he will show him how much he Bo-lieves.

    Main Event: WWE tag titles tornado tag No DQ match: The Club (c) vs The New Day

    This match is a fun brawl which ends up being crazy with a lot of fun spots as both teams go all out for the WWE tag team titles. You see a lot of quick pinfalls with New Day controlling the match mostly due to their teamwork and having been champions for nearly a year.

    Spots during the match include all 3 members of the Club being in the corner of the ring as the New Day go around the ring doing the unicorn stampede to all 3 members before after doing one to each member hit them with Dropkicks to the face in the corner. Another big spot Anderson and Gallows hit Xavier with a boot of doom before Finn then hits the Coup D'Grace and covers before it is broken by Kofi stopping them picking up the win.

    We also see a few spots using chairs as the Club makes good use of the No DQ stipulation whilst Big E at one point is able to connect with a Big Ending onto the steel chair. Kofi is also able to take Finn Balor out with a boom drop through the table taking him out for an extended period as we get to the end of the match.

    It is now 3 vs 2 in the ring as New Day face off against the Club in the ring. Kofi and Luke Gallows go over the rope as they brawl at the side of the ring leaving Anderson on his own with Big E and Woods. Both men take control before they hit him with the Midnight hour to Anderson with Gallows fighting Kofi at ringside and Finn out for count after the boom drop through the announce table.

Outside the ring Kofi hits Gallows with a trouble in paradise before heading in the ring to help him teammates. Nick Aldis picks up Big E and hits him with a powerbomb before turning round into a trouble in paradise to the face sending him out of the ring.

    However Kofi turns round into a wasteland from Barrett. Anderson meanwhile has rolled out of the ring to recover. Barrett smirks standing tall when Woods hits Barrett with a tornado DDT. However before he can do anything he gets spun around by Finn Balor who hits him with 1916!!! Finn makes the cover

Meanwhile the Mercenaries smirk as they head off as they New Day are talking each other at ringside clearly mad as hell as they have been robbed once again.

    Wrestlemania 33 Re: WWE: A different future



    September13th:



    Dolph Ziggler comes out to the ring to start of Smackdown as he gets a mixed reaction from the crowd here. He however does not do any of his usual antics and looks very solemn and regretful as he makes his way into the ring. He says last night what I did was not what I wanted to do. I did not want to attack Cena but I had to. The crowd react with completely confusion. Ziggler says he needed to get Cena to face him and the best way to get Cena's attention was to cost him his match last week. By making him lose he knows Cena will be out to kick his ass and gain payback.

    As he is about to carry however Kevin Owens makes his way out to the ring to interrupt Dolph Ziggler before he can carry on. He says no one cares why you interfered last week and that it is not the time for losers but this is the Kevin Owens show so get out of my ring. Dolph Ziggler tells Owens he will do what he did to Cena to Owens right now with Owens daring him to mocking him saying maybe you might even win a match a one day.

    At this point the WWE champion makes his way out to the ring side area and starts to laugh at both men from the ramp as he gets a pop from the crowd. Dean Ambrose comes out saying desperate men will do desperate things to get noticed. He tells Ziggler he is not sure why he is sorry for kicking Cena in the face but he needs to be careful as he knows how deadly it can be playing with someone like Bray Wyatt can be for your psyche. Ziggler tells Ambrose he can handle himself just fine with Ambrose saying he is just warning Ziggler to be careful what he is getting into as Bray is the kind of man who can leave a lasting effect on a person.

    Kevin Owens tells both men does he need to read both men a bedtime story so they can get sleep alright tonight because they are afraid of the boogeyman. Owens remarks that his son grew out of that when he was 5 years old. Dean Ambrose says he is not afraid of Bray Wyatt he just knows as a kingpin who the real threats to his reign are unlike someone who is still obsessed that his former best friend beat him to the WWE. Owens at this point gets in Ambrose's face daring Ambrose to say that again. Ziggler tells both men he came out here to speak to John Cena not listen to both men squabble with each other threatening to do to them what he did to Cena last week as the tension in the ring is starting to rise.

    John Cena at this point makes his way out to a mixed reaction though it is mostly pops from the crowd. He tells Ziggler you wanted me to face you? All you had to do was ask me. He says Ambrose may be a bit crazy but for once he is right. Desperate men do desperate things and you need to be careful about the path you are going down as Bray will test your mind to it's limits and make you do things you would never normally do. Ziggler says he is sick of people saying he is a failure and that he knows he should have had a lot more success in his career. He says by beating you and beating Bray I can get myself back where I belong. He then pokes the WWE title on Dean Ambrose's shoulder. Ambrose tells him touch is title again he will break Ziggler's hand.

    Ambrose smirks before saying beating a lazy part-timer is not going to make you worthy of a title shot to a mixed reaction. Cena looks very annoyed and gives Ambrose a stare-down before turning back to Ziggler telling him he knows Ziggler is not a failure and is a 2 time World champion but he won't be able to beat him. He made a mistake at Summerslam underestimating how good AJ Styles is but he will not do the same with Ziggler. Ziggler says he wants Cena at his best and fired up to make sure Bray have no choice but to pay attention to him. Ambrose starts to smirks again saying looks like we found the one person more obsessed with someone then Owens is.

    Owens at this point has had enough hitting Ambrose in the face with a microphone however before he can carry on Ziggler clocks him with a superkick to the face. Ziggler smirks before getting ready to hit Ambrose with a superkick when Cena picks up Ziggler and hits him with an AA shouting that was for last week. Ambrose however instead of thanking John Cena tells him he does not need his help pushing him away with Cena smirking telling him looks like you did before telling Ambrose he will be coming for that soon before leaving the ring as the segment ends.


    Match 1: The Miz vs Erick Rowan

    The Miz faces off against the crazy Erick Rowan here with both men not being the best known for their in ring work though Miz's improvement are shown here in this heel vs heel match. Bray Wyatt is watching the match from his rocking chair interested in this match whilst Luke Harper watches by the apron. The match ends up concluding when Maryse distracts the ref allow Miz to low blow Rowan with a kick before sneaking around him and hitting the skull crushing finale. Interestingly Bray tells Luke to not go in the ring after the low blow instead telling him to wait before entering the ring.


    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: The Miz (8:30)


    Post-match as soon as it is finished Harper runs into the ring (after Bray gives the signal to attack) hitting Miz with a discuss clothesline knocking the Miz out cold as Bray makes his way out of the rocking chair and into the ring as he grabs hold of a microphone. He goes towards Maryse at ringside. Bray says your man is weak and holds the gold that I need. He then tells Maryse however that you are strong and without you the Miz would be even weaker. Maryse for once looks a little scared as Harper steps towards her too when AMERICAN ALPHA make their way down to the ring.

    American Alpha runs down to the ring with Bray telling his boys to leave for now as they head up the ramp as American Alpha challenge them to fight with Bray telling his boys we will crush them another day. Meanwhile at ringside we see Miz with his wife Maryse making sure she is OK after the fright she just had.

    We come back from the ad break to find the Miz talking with his wife who is looking a little shaken up. He is saying it is OK I will not lose my title and I will beat him it will be OK. American Alpha walk past making a joke that maybe Maryse will be coming home with one of them after they saved her. Miz however goes mental saying he and Maryse can protect themselves before telling the pair that he did not ask for their and help they only helped him because they want what the Miz has.

    Jordan tells Miz that they attacked the Wyatts and saved Miz because they wanted to send a message to the Wyatt Family not because they care about the pair of them. Gable says you guys were just a happy sort of accident that was there. Jordan says however anytime you want to defend that against us after we saved your ass we will be ready willing and … Gable finishes it off with the Gable line before giving Miz a towel. Miz looks at it with disgust before throwing it behind him into the arms of Daniel Bryan.

    The presence of Daniel Bryan only cause Miz to be even more annoyed at this situation asking what Bryan even wants with his top star and does he have any more ideas to put his wife in danger? Bryan smirks before telling Miz he came here to tell him next week it will be American Alpha and The Miz vs The Wyatt Family before thanking Miz for the towel. The segment ends with American Alpha and Miz giving each other awkward looks.

    Jack Gallagher gets interviewed backstage by Renee Young who asks him about the attack by Sheamus last week. Jack Gallagher says he has dealt with people like Sheamus who are barbarians and scoundrels who bully people they don't like who are different but he will not let...Before he can finish off his sentence Sheamus attacks him from behind before grabbing him by the face telling Gallagher he will see him at No Mercy and will remove him from his brand. He then tells Gallagher to watch his match next very closely.


    Match 2: Sheamus vs Akira Towaza

    Sheamus and Akira Towaza put on a good match here with a lot of people expecting Towaza to get squashed by Sheamus here but he ends up giving him a war showing off his suplexs and his aggression but in the end Sheamus's size advantage and experience comes into play as he picks up the win with a brouge kick to the face.


    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Sheamus (8:18)


    We then cut to elsewhere backstage as we can see Neville is backstage watching a TV with a match from the CWC being shown on the TV. Renne asks him what he thinks about his potential opponents at No Mercy and whether he will be attending the final of the CWC. Neville smirks saying he will be there in person to watch as any of the 4 men could win. He puts over all 4 men. He starts off on Kota Ibushi saying he is a legend in Japan. He then talks about Gran Metallik saying the guy has achieved great success in Mexico and would be an honour to face such a great luchador. He then cuts to TJ Perkins saying the kid has gone up and down America and has wrestled on national TV elsewhere saying he is not the underdog everyone thinks he is. He then lastly cuts to his fellow countryman and someone he says has helped lead the revolution in British wrestling Zack Sabre Jr. He says that British Wrestling has seen a resurgence with Brits proving why we are among the best in the world and the chance to face Zack Sabre Jr would be an honour and not to be biased but I hope Sabre wins. Renee thanks him for his time before we go to an ad break.

    We cut to elsewhere backstage we see RVD and Kane stood where they start off looking very annoyed as Kane warns the pair of Corbin and Rhyno that they are playing with fire. He says Rhyno calls himself the man beast but what happens when he messes with the true beast's favourite demon? RVD says meanwhile Corbin's ass may as well be grass because he is going to smoke it. RVD says he wants Corbin and Rhyno to face them at No Mercy on the pre-show and wants an answer. However as RVD turns around he gets Gore'd by Rhyno. Meanwhile Kane gets hit with a deep six to the floor as Corbin tells them that at No Mercy he will put down old yeller.

    AJ Styles makes his way out to the ring next. He starts of by mocking Cena saying he is now the face that runs this place and as part of that mission he needs to help the older guard on their way out and proving that he is better then all of them. He says that two men have been at the top of WWE for years and whilst Cena was seen as the number one Randy was always seen as just below him as the number 2 guy in the company.

    Styles smirks saying he has already beaten the number one guy in the company what is to stop him from beating the number two guy. He smirks saying maybe when he beats Randy Orton he will get the title shot he deserves. However at this point Orton makes his way out to the ring. Orton tells Styles that whilst he is right about him being at the top for years he is no one's number two and he is no John Cena. He tells AJ that he is not some boy scout but the Viper who will take Styles head off. Styles smirks telling Orton what like he did to Orton before reminding him who won the match. Orton says maybe he will save time and make it so you don't make it to No Mercy. Styles smirks before hitting Orton with the microphone to the face before going for the phenomenal forearm but stops before jumping seeing Orton get ready with the RKO heading up the ramp pointing to his head telling Orton he outsmarted him and will do so again at No Mercy.

    We comes back from an ad break as we see the Shining stars attacking Crews backstage taking him down in a 2 vs 1 attack before mocking him saying to bring whoever he can because they will beat them on the No Mercy pre-show like the loser that Crews is.

    Elsewhere in the arena we see Randy Orton walking through the backstage area when John Cena walks into the picture. John Cena smirks not saying anything before telling Orton to watch out for Styles. Orton asks John who he thinks he is before saying unlike Cena he is not the kind of person who takes time off because he lost a match. Cena says he took time off due to with Orton interrupting. Orton tells Cena he knows what he is going to say and mentions that unlike Cena he ain't taking time off because he knows he is still one of the best whilst Cena can only stay on top for short periods.

    John Cena snaps back telling Orton he is sick of the comments about him being a part-timer saying yeah I do take time off every now and then for outside interests because guess what I worked my way to the top and earned it. He says when he is here he is still John Cena and informs Orton that the CHAMP IS HERE. He says he may have lost to Styles at Summerslam but he feels like reliving old times telling Orton so next week he will beat him again like he always does and send a message to Ziggler, Owens, Ambrose and you that I am still the same John Cena I always have been. RECONGIZE.


    Match 3: The Usos vs Tony Nese and Drew Gulak

    This is a fun match with both team showing what they can do in the ring as Gulak and Nese team up forming an alliance between two of the new cruiser-weights on the Smackdown Live roster. However as the match is going on Breezedango make their way out giving the Usos a slight distraction in their match here as they come down the ramp posing with their selfie sticks as they come down the ramp trying to get the as they call them “The Uggos” in shot. However the Usos ignore this with them hitting a double superkick to Nese before hitting the superfly splash to Gulak and getting the win.


    Spoiler:


    Winners via pinfall: The Usos (10:54)


    Post-match Breezedango in their own world seem to be too busy admiring how they look with their titles. The Usos see this before running off the ropes and doing a suicide dive onto the pair of them. They take down the pair causing them to drop the selfie sticks.The Usos get up and grab the titles whilst taking the selfie sticks and taking a picture with them as a little present for the tag team champions when they wake up.

    Backstage we get Tom Phillips who is seen with DIY. DIY say they are glad to be here and that whilst most of their careers they have been individuals who have looked after their own careers. They have proved in NXT why they are the best today and they were this close to winning the NXT tag team titles but now? They will win at No Mercy and claim the Smackdown tag team titles. Gargano talks about how the Cruiserweight division is another point of interest to them after Gargano beat Cimapa in the first round which Cimapa angrily responds calling it a fluke win. Gargano seems a bit taken aback by the angry reaction but carries on saying both men will be gunning for whoever comes out on top after they have won the tag team titles. However before they can carry on the Vaudevillians come into the area.Vaudevillians say that they know flukes and DIY beating them was a fluke. Aiden sings that we should get a rematch to show you who real men are. DIY says on main Event they will be glad to show them. DIY walks off saying they have somewhere to be. Meanwhile Simon Gotch sees a random person backstage before challenging them to a fight.


    Match 4: Hunico vs Noam Dar

    In a battle of the Cruiserweights Noam Dar a newcomer to the WWE takes on Hunico a man who has been revitalised after turning on his former friend Kallisto and is looking to carry on his positive momentum by picking up a win over the young kid Noam Dar. Dar puts on a great performance on his WWE debut working over Hunico's leg and looks very likely to win however Hunico uses a rake to the eye to take control of the match. He lays Dar out with a Northern lights suplex before climbing to the top and hitting him with the falling star to win the match.

    Spoiler:


    Winner by pinfall: Hunico(9:15)


    Hunico however post-match is stood over Noam Dar when he starts to punch Noam Dar in the head and grabs his bandanna from his head wrapping it round Dar's face shouting to the crowd do you like his new mask? However before he can do more damage Kallisto runs out to the ring which causes Hunico to smirk and retreat up the ramp. Kallisto screams for Hunico to get in the ring but Hunico smirks saying not tonight. Segment ends with Kallisto making sure Noam Dar is OK as we go to an ad break before the main event.

    Main Event: John Cena and Dean Ambrose vs Dolph Ziggler and Kevin Owens

    This is the standard tag team main event with all 4 men showing why they are at the top of Smackdown even if Ziggler has been on a bit of a losing streak at this current moment in time and seems lost. However towards the end Owens tags Ziggler in and heads up the ramp leaving Ziggler by himself. Ziggler turns around into a Dirty Deeds from Ambrose who puts him down for the 3 count here.


    Spoiler:


    Winners via pinfall: John Cena and Dean Ambrose (14:03)


    Dean Ambrose post-match goes towards the ropes inviting Kevin Owens back in but Owens just snarls at him before heading backstage after the match.

He calls himself the prince of the Cruiserweights and will show everyone why he is the best.

    Re: WWE: A different future




    September 19th:

    Raw starts off as the New Day make their way out to the ring to a very good pop from the crowd to start the show off. They are not in the usual jovial mood that the New Day are famous for as they make their way to the ring though still holding their Booty O's. As soon as they get in the ring Woods demands that the Mercenaries make their way out to the ring right now and explain themselves before they force these Booty O's down their throats. They mention how twice they have been robbed. Kofi says first by Big Foot robbed him of winning the World title and Big E says now by two hired guns. Woods says they know the Mercenaries are hired guns and they want to know WHO WHO WHO WHO paid them off. They have a hunch but want confirmation before they beat their asses. However before they can make any more jokes the Mercenaries make their way out to the ring.

    Wade Barrett and Nick Aldis make their way out to the ring in suits smirking as they come out with a microphone in Wade Barrett's hand to heat from the crowd. Barrett says even though they beat him in the World title tournament what they did was nothing personal just business. Nick tells the New Day he goes where the money goes and the money was to stop New Day from taking the tag team titles again. Big E then asks WHO WHO WHO cares why you did we just want to know who paid them so we can go after them after we are done with you. Barrett responds that they have a client confidentiality agreement so they will not be telling the New Day who attacked them. Kofi responds that in that case we will have to use the power of positivist to beat it out of you. Barrett and Aldis responds they are not paid for this leaving the ring but New Day are quick to follow attacking the Mercenaries. However as this is going on Braun Strowman's music hits and he looks angry as hell.

    He storms down to the ring charging towards the New Day when Stephanie makes her wait out telling all 6 men to stop this right now. She tells all 6 men she is banning contact between them for the rest of the night. She then tells them that all 6 of them will be taking part in the main event as well as anyone on the Raw roster who has yet to become a WWE or World champion as there will be a New Star battle royale tonight in honour of Joe's victory at Backlash. She also declares that once you have been eliminated you must go to the back and anyone who interferes once thrown out will be suspended. So to make sure they are all fresh she wants no psychical contact between the 6 men. Woods pipes up saying does Stephanie have something to hide? Stephanie responds saying she is their boss and she only wants what is best for business. However if Woods wants to fight so bad he can fight Nick Aldis right now with Kofi and Big E banned from ringside. She also tells Strowman to get to the back as he has a match later tonight as well. Woods look annoyed whilst Nick Aldis looks very happy about this opportunity.

    Match 1: Xaiver Woods vs Nick Aldis w/Wade Barrett

    Woods faces off her against Nick Aldis as Nick makes his return to the ring after picking up the hand injury. Nick Aldis is able to control most of the match using his speed and power to to control the match. Xaiver Woods looks like he may have the win when he hits Nick Aldis with a Tornado DDT but Barrett moves Nick foot onto the rope. Woods gets in Barrett face calling him out for what he did but when he turns around Aldis has recovered before hitting him with a double powerbomb. He then picks up Woods onto his shoulder before taking him for a spin and dropping him with a Samoan Drop in a move which he calls Tormentum covering Woods for the 3 count and the win.

    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Nick Aldis w/Wade Barrett (9:17)

    We cut to the backstage area where Mike Rome is with Carmella interviewing her and she gets asked how she feels about no longer having Charlotte on Raw to mentor her. Carmella says Emma is a viscous vile person who took out someone who was leading the Women's division to new heights. Carmella then says how does she get punished for doing this? She gets a title shot next week. The princess of Staten Island refuses to let someone take out her queen and promises that if Emma walks away with the title next week then she will put in the hands of royalty once again.


    We then cut to the backstage area as we can see Cesaro and Zayn hanging out with each other. They are talking and mention the battle royale later on both knowing that this is a big chance for the pair of them.Both men mention how close they feel they came to beating Samoa Joe saying that one more shot at Joe and they know they can beat him. Cesaro says that there is a good chance that they will be the last 2 in the battle royale.

    Cesaro brings up their encounters in NXT mentioning how Zayn earned his respect pushing him to the limit for example the 2 out of 3 falls match but Cesaro tells Zayn he won each time and will do so again. Zayn argues back saying I am a lot better then I was back then mentioning sending Owens to Smackdown and winning the NXT title. Cesaro says they will find out tonight and may the best man win as they both shake hands with each other as the Ascension walk into the room.

    They say that both men have had their chance to rise from the wasteland but the Ascension have not had an opportunity like this and will take it leaving both men in where they belong. Cesaro says they talk a lot without saying much and challenges them to a match later tonight to give him and Zayn a warm up. Viktor and Konnor accept the match later on tonight.

    Match 2: Mojo Rawley vs Braun Strowman

    Strowman extends this match out longer then it really should be. He takes his time destroying Mojo letting out a lot of anger and hitting him with power move after power move. Mojo slaps him in the face towards the end making Strowman even madder. He hits his running powerslam but picks up Mojo hitting him with it again and again and again causing the ref to call a stop to this match declaring Strowman the winner via stoppage.

    Spoiler:


    Winner via stoppage: Braun Strowman (6:28)


    Strowman however has not stopped and is looking to do even more damage with Ryder and Hawkins running into the ring with Ryder going for the rough ryder but he gets powerbombed to the floor. Hawkins however runs in with that cane he carries around and hits Strowman with it again and again causing him to fall to the ring floor. He then puts it down before going for the heat seeking elbow to him on the outside but Strowman kips up as Hawkins is jumping and moves out of the way sending him crashing to the floor. He then picks up Hawkins and hits him with a running powerslam to the ringside floor before security come down to stop him. Strowman heads to the back happy with his handy working shouting this is the New Day's fate as medics tend to Mojo Rawley in the ring who is clearly in a bad way.

    We come back from an ad break as we see Mojo Rawley getting carried away on a stretcher as the other two hype bros walks with him both still selling the attack before we cut to Samoa Joe backstage being interviewed by Carly Caruso.

    She asks Samoa Joe what he thinks about Stephanie making a new star battle royale to choose who will face him at Survivor Series. He says it does not matter who faces him whether a new wrestler or someone who has been here for years who never made it. He will show why he was kept away from WWE for being too dominant and will defeat whoever draws the short straw in trying to take his World title from him.

    We are backstage where we see Seth Rollins and it cuts to him going into HHH and Stephanie McMahon office to speak to them. He tells them he wants Roman Reigns in a match at Survivor Series. HHH says you have not fully recovered from his attack. Seth tells HHH he does not care and wants to beat his ass. He says he knows he is not getting a title shot due to Stephanie's decision tonight. Stephanie butts in saying she did it because Seth would not have recovered in time and wanted to make sure a monster like Joe did not do more damage to him. HHH says you facing Reigns in a 1 vs 1 match would not be safe for your health or smart but he has a compromise that will protect Seth due to his injuries and allow him to get his payback. He says at Survivor Series it will be team Rollins vs Team Reigns in a 5 vs 5 survivor series elimination match. He tells Seth to go out to the ring and think about who he wants on his team for Survivor Series. Seth leaves the office to head to the ring as Raw goes to an ad break.

    Seth Rollins then makes his way out to the ring. He says he is still in a lot of pain but he was not going to spend any more time on the shelf after missing Wrestlemania last year. He says he nearly had that fear he was going to be out for a long period again after the assault by Reigns which is why he refused medical help and fought a monster like Strowman. He says normally he thinks things through and has a plan but when someone tries to make him miss doing what he loves for an extended period of time once again he reacts emotionally and now wants one thing. He wants to beat Reigns's ass.

    He then says that he has done bad things in the past like turning on his brothers which he feels bad about. Well only about stabbing Ambrose in the back. He tells the crowd Reigns proved him right for doing what he did to Reigns in the past when he acted like a sore loser as he is pretty sure Reigns would have stabbed him in the back if given the chance. Reigns was just mad that he has never been able to stay on the top like Rollins did for so long and is angry that people actually like someone who is a horrible person like himself. He tells Reigns people like him because he is himself whilst Reigns is a fake who pretends to be someone else.

    At this point Roman Reigns makes his way out in a suit as he comes down to the ring. He says he is sick of being a fake for these people and doing what they wanted him to do instead of being the person who he wanted to be. He says Rollins set him back from where he should have been saying he should have dethroned Lesnar and Rollins took his legacy from him and now he will take Seth Rollins career before Rollins jumps on him hitting him with punches not wanting to listen to a word he has to say.

    Both men start to brawl but it is very short as Foley comes out to heat from the crowd with security telling both men to stop this immediately or their match at Survivor Series is cancelled. This causes both men to stop as they are taken to the back as both men clearly want to get their hand on each other.

    Match 3: Cedric Alexander vs Bo Dallas

    This match is a decent match which is here to put over how good Cedric is as he picks up the win in this match against Bo Dallas hitting him with the Lumbar check for the 3 count shutting up Bo Dallas for at least a while.

    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Cedric Alexander (8:36)
    We come back from an ad break as Sasha Banks makes her way out to the ring as she is holding her Women's title. She gets in the ring and says that during the week she spoke to Mick Foley and convinced him that next week she will face Emma for the Women title. Sasha says at Backlash she beat Alexa Bliss at her own game and mentions she has already dethroned the queen but she did not slay the queen like Emma did before inviting her to the ring.

    Emma makes her way out to the ring flanked by Dana Brooks as usual. Emma tells Sasha she has heard the speech before saying she knows that Sasha is the boss but whilst she left NXT for a short period everything changed and she never got her shot at Sasha like she should have. She says Sasha and the four horsewomen stayed on top because she was too focused on people like Sasha's best friend Bayley when she should have gone straight for the top dog.

    Sasha smirks saying she ain't Bayley and as good as Bayley is she is capable of doing whatever it takes to keep her belt. Sasha says that she may have started the revolution but she was not there to finish it because the division got better. This got a mixed reaction but Sasha says you had to team up with Dana there who is never able to stand on her own two feet. Emma brings up the BFF's but Sasha says she proved herself on her own whilst you two have not and next week I will prove once again that you need each other and why I don't need anyone because I am the Boss. She tells Emma next week I will still be Women's champion and you can bank on it.

    Match 4: Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax vs Bayley and Becky Lynch

    This is a fun mix tag between 4 women who it is announced during the ad break will be taking part in a number one contender's match next week to see who will face the winner of the Women's title match next week at Survivor Series. Nia jax does most of the work with Bliss tagging herself in towards the end to hit the Sparkle splash to Bayley pinning her for the 3 count as Nia Jax stops Becky Lynch.

    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Alexa Bliss (8:42)

    Nia Jax post-match turns around and takes out Bliss standing tall overall 3 women making it clear that next week they will have to defeat a monster in Nia Jax if they want to get a title shot at Sasha Banks.

    We cut to backstage where we see Strowman storming through the back of the arena clearly still heated before screaming he is not finished with the NEW DAY yet promising to crush them in the over the top rope battle royal tonight as a bunch of jobbers just seem to be quaking in fear of the thought of facing Braun later on tonight wondering can he be stopped.

    Match 5: Paige vs Natalya

    Paige here is looking to get some momentum after her defeat the other week at Backlash to Nia Jax here against Natalya. Commentary also mention the words Lana said to her backstage as she was walking through the back with Del Rio. In this match Paige picks up the win with the Ram-paige for the 3 count.
    Spoiler:


    Winner via pinfall: Paige (8:44)
    We have a segment backstage where we can see Rhodes Scholars and Enzo &Cass talking with Mick Foley. They can all be heard talking over each other when Foley tells all 4 men to be quiet. He tells them all he has enough to deal with at the moment with everyone fighting each other and him having to keep bringing out security to stop them. He says due to what the Club did the other week attacking all 4 of you here is what he I going to do. He tells Enzo and Cass to head to the ring as they will be facing the Club right now in a WWE tag team titles match. They are happy and head off when Rhodes Scholars look very annoyed at this development. Sandow asks what is in it for them but Foley tells them that next week they will face whichever team wins for the tag team titles. He then tells them to have a nice day.

    Match 6: WWE tag team titles match: The Club w/Finn Balor (c) vs Enzo and Big Cass

    This match is fun with Big Cass controlling the match before tagging in Enzo however Finn at ringside is the big difference as he uses his presence at ringside to distract the ref whilst Gallows takes a chair from ringside Balor has set up and hits Cass with it taking him out.This leaves Enzo in the ring on his own and Anderson puts him away for the 3 count meaning the Club will defend the titles next week against Rhodes Scholars.

    Spoiler:


    Winners via pinfall and still WWE tag team champions: The Club (10:23)

    Rusev is backstage with his wife on his arm he boasts about how he put Shelton Benjamin in the hospital. He says this title is back where it belongs as Lana says something in a flirty voice in Russian. Rusev then promises that he will go onto face Samoa Joe at Survivor Series and become a double champion something that pathetic American Kurt Angle could never do.

    Match 7: Alberto Del Rio vs Big Show

    This match is more just to carry on the face turn that has begun for Alberto Del Rio plus also both men are not going to be in the New Star battle royale. Alberto Del Rio picks up the win with a cross armbreaker after a good showing getting mostly cheers from the crowd post-match.

    Spoiler:


    Winner by submission: Alberto Del Rio (10:46)

    The match starts off with all 31 men in the ring. The key thing to happen at the start is Strowman to go mental and charge at the New Day but they use their smarts and help pull down the rope as Big E and Kofi lift him over the top stunning the giant here potentially enraging him even more as everyone watches on in joy as they see the beast go out of the match!

    Eliminated by New Day: Braun Strowman (0:08)

    Strowman goes mental at kicking the steel steps as refs come over telling him to go to the back. He thinks about before leaving knowing that he will get a chance another time to pay the New Day back as well as the threat from Stephanie McMahon making him think better of it.

The match carries on with Bubba Ray Dudley battling with Cedric Alexander in the corner as both men showing off their skills here. Bubba goes to take Cedric out of the match but Cedric reverse the powerbomb attempt into a huricanna sending Bubba over the top rope and out of the match.

    Eliminated by Cedric Alexander: Bubba Ray Dudley (8:15)

    Meanwhile elsewhere we can see the New Day are battling with the Mercenaries as they look to inflict a measure of payback onto the guns for hire here but Wade Barrett and Nick Aldis are able to put on a hell of a fight. Meanwhile in the ring Rusev gets taken down to the mat before Cedric is able to hit Overtime to him in the ring. Elsewhere we see Cesaro and Zayn fighting each other in one corner as well. Meanwhile Heath Slater is sticking in the corner trying to hide away sees Cedric hit Overtime to Rusev and sees a chance to strike and tries to sneak upon Cedric but gets laid out with Lumbar check. Cedric then picks up Slater and throws him over the top rope.

    Eliminated by Cedric Alexander: Heath Slater (9:12)

    Meanwhile Big Cass is looking to face off against the numbers game here and is doing a good job with Cody looking to come off the ropes with a Beautiful disaster kick but gets caught with a boot to the face sending him over the top rope.

    Eliminated by Big Cass: Cody Rhodes (9:56)

    However Big Cass then gets his leg lifted from behind and sent over the top rope by Sandow!

    Eliminated by Damien Sandow: Big Cass (10:02)

    Meanwhile elsewhere in the ring Barrett is facing off against Kofi whilst Big E fights against Rusev, Cesaro and Zayn try to one up each other. Sandow is battling with Cedric whilst Aldis takes on Woods. They have a nice back and forth but Aldis is able to send Woods over the top rope.

    Eliminated by Nick Aldis: Xaiver Woods (11:13)

    Eliminated by Cedric Alexander: Damien Sandow (12:18)

    After this however he gets blindsided by Rusev as those two start to battle by the ropes whilst the Mercenaries battle against the New Day. Both the Mercenaries try to use cheap tactics and low blow both men before throwing them over the rope rope thinking they are gone. However Kofi hangs on before jumping off the apron with a crossbody to both men as Big E runs in and hits the running splash to Barrett and then one to Aldis. They then pick a member up each and throw them out of the ring as we go down to 6.

    Eliminated by Kofi Kingston: Wade Barrett (13:28)

    Eliminated by Big E: Nick Aldis (13:28)


    Rusev is beating on Cedric in the corner as he tries to put up a good fight when New Day come over and hit Rusev in the face with Trouble in paradise sending him to the mat. Cedric knows he is in a 2 vs 1 fight before getting a hand from Zayn and Cesaro knowing how dangerous a new Day alliance is. All 3 take on the pairing and are able to get them down to mat. However as Cedric is about to do a running soccer kick to Big E on the ropes Rusev comes up from behind and throws him out of the ring!

    Eliminated by Rusev: Cedric Alexander (15:01)

    Rusev smirks happy at his handy work but turns rounds into an European uppercut to the face from Cesaro before he falls back into the turnbuckle before getting hit with an Hulleva kick to face from Zayn sending him out of the match as we are down to the final 4.

    Eliminated by Sami Zayn: Rusev (15:29)

    Both Cesaro and Zayn then turn around as they know that the New Day will work together as they shake hands before saying may the best man win as they go on the attack. They battle in the ring as running shoulder tackle takes Cesaro down. He then turns around but Zayn hits him with a few punches before dropping him to the mat with a tornado DDT.However as he is about the carry on Kofi hits him with a dropkick to the face. He then gets Big E up who puts Cesaro in the corner before they do a variant of the unicorn stampede to Cesaro. Big E then picks him up and throws Cesaro out meaning we are down to 3 men.

    Eliminated by Big E: Cesaro (17:16)

    Zayn starts to rise knowing he is having to face both members of the New Day to have a chance at the World title and goes right onto the attack charging at Big E but gets flattened and taken to the ground. Kofi runs off the ropes and hits with a boom drop. Kofi gets off him as he gets ready to hit Trouble in Paradise and goes for it but Zayn ducks causing Kofi to hit Big E by mistake. Kofi looks worried having just hit his partner by mistake allowing Zayn to take advantage sending Kofi over the top! However Kofi just about hangs on and stays in the match! Meanwhile Zayn gets taken down by Big E as they battle near the ropes. Big E picks Zayn up looking to eliminate him but Zayn counters into a hurricana sending Big E over the top rope!

    Eliminated by Sami Zayn: Big E (18:02)

    However just as Zayn recovers Kofi comes up from behind and hits Zayn with trouble in paradise eliminating him from the match!
