    Battleground Re: Deco & Shaz Present WWE: Smackdown vs. Raw!

    WWE Battleground

    July 24th 2016

    Washington D.C - Verizon Center




    Pre-Show: Breezango def. The Usos

    This match was very close as both teams were evenly matched. Fandango & Tyler Breeze showed a huge amount of chemistry as they worked well together as a team. The Usos were ready to prove why they deserve to be competing for the Tag Team titles. The finish of this match came when Jimmy Uso & Tyler Breeze were the legal men. Jimmy Uso was in position to hit Breeze with a Samoan Splash but Fandango began to distract Jimmy from the apron. This led to Jey Uso running to Fandango and throwing him off the apron before nailing a Clothesline. However, the distraction worked as Jimmy launched off the top rope but hit the canvas as Breeze rolled out of the way. Breeze picked Jimmy up from the canvas and nailed him with a Unprettier! Breeze covered Jimmy to get the win for Breezango!

    Main Show

    Match 1. The Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt, Erick Rowan & Braun Strowman) def. The New Day

    This was a non-title match between two trios of polar opposites. The WWE Tag Team Champions were undoubtedly the underdogs in this match as they gave it their all to try and dethrone The Wyatt Family. On the other hand, The Wyatt Family were the dominant trio as they were set out to absolutely destroy The New Day. The finish of this match came when Bray Wyatt & Xavier Woods were the legal men. Big E nailed a Spear onto Strowman who was standing on the apron. Woods & Bray began to staredown as Woods was showing no fear- trying to conquer his own personal demon in Bray. From out of nowhere, Bray began to do his signature spiderwalk as Woods looked very shocked and unsettle. He attempted to retreat but Wyatt grabbed him from behind- and nailed a baffled Woods with a Sister Abigail! He covered Woods as The Wyatts got the win.

    Match 2. Rusev (c) def. Zack Ryder to retain the WWE US Championship

    A very back and forth match for the US Championship as both men put on a great match. Rusev played the dominant aggressor in the match with Lana by his side- targeting Ryder's head whereas Ryder was very resilient in his attempt to capture the US Championship for a second time. The finish came when Rusev went for the Machka Kick to the head of Ryder, before ducked it as Rusev kicked the air. Rusev then turned around to a Clothesline from Ryder as the champion was on the canvas. Ryder went up the top rope to go for a El-Bro Drop but as he launched, Rusev got up from nowhere to nail Ryder with a Machka Kick to the head of a flying Ryder! Rusev further inflicted more pain to the head as he locked Ryder in The Accolade- and Ryder had no option but to tap out as Rusev retained the US Championship!

    Match 3. Natalya def. Becky Lynch

    The crowd was fully behind Becky Lynch in this match, with Natalya receiving a mixed reaction from the Washington crowd. This was a very technical match as Nattie focused on Becky's lower back whereas Becky tried to work on Nattie's arm. The finish came when Becky had Nattie set up for a Bex-Plex but Nattie wriggled her way out of it before nailing Becky with a Backbreaker! Nattie grabbed Becky's legs- and locked her in the Sharpshooter. Becky tried her absolute best to crawl over to the ropes to break the submission hold, but Nattie used her strength to bring Becky closer to the centre of the ring. Nattie increased the pressure of the hold, to the point where Becky had no choice but to tap!

    After the match, Nattie celebrated her win as Becky was visibly upset. The referee raised Nattie's hand, before Nattie turned over to Becky. Becky eventually got back up, full of bravery after a hard-fought match. Nattie then gave Becky a nod of approval, showing respect to the Irish Lass Kicker as the fans cheered loudly.

    Match 4. The Miz (c) def. Darren Young to retain the WWE Intercontinental Championship

    The fans were slowly getting behind Darren Young as his lifecoach Bob Backlund was also at ringside. Washington showed their disapproval for The Miz, as his wife Maryse was at ringside too. The match was very well-fought between both men. The finish came when Darren Young had all the momentum- and he had The Miz locked in a Crossface Chickenwing to the pleasure of the fans, and Mr. Backlund himself. The champion was very close to submitting, but Maryse got up on the apron as the referee began to get distracted. This led to Backlund walking over to Maryse, screaming at her. Maryse got in Backlund's face, and viciously slapped Backlund to a negative reaction. This led to Young breaking the submission hold in anger, as he looked over to see his life coach down- but The Miz capitilized on the distraction by grabbing Young, and nailing him with a Skull Crushing Finale! Miz covered Young to retain his title!

    After the match, The Miz & Maryse celebrated to the back as Darren Young was shocked about the loss. Young exited the ring, and went over to his life coach as Backlund was still on the floor. Young helped him up, but Backlund looked very annoyed before walking off as Young looked confused.

    Jim Ross & Randy Orton Interview

    The live footage heads to the commentary table where good ole' JR- Jim Ross stands with a microphone in hand ready to speak. He says that he hopes the WWE Universe is enjoying Battleground thus far before stating that he has a surprise for them. He says that via satellite we are about to speak with a man who's been out of action for Nine months with a shoulder injury. He says for the WWE Universe to welcome back the multi-time World Champion, the Viper! Randy Orton!

    The crowd give a nice pop for Randy Orton as he appears on the big screen with a smile on his face. Orton is home, the backdrop is a room where various memorabilia is on the walls and shelves. Memories of his early days, Evolution and as the legend killer are on display. Orton looks healthy, the lighting bouncing off him as a stage hand finishes fitting his microphone.

    Jim Ross says "Randy, it's good to see you. Firstly, It's been Nine months, how are you? Is the shoulder healed?" Randy smiles again before replying. He says that it's good to be back on TV again, though he would have loved to have been there live in person. He thanks Jim Ross for the introduction and also welcomes him back too- saying it's about time he returned home to which Jim Ross nods in appreciation. Randy says he feels great. He states that it's been a long, tough, grueling Nine months where he's had to battle his own thoughts.. Was he done? Did he still want this? Does he have the same drive, desire and hunger? Orton says it's not been easy, but he's worked hard- has been in the gym, eating healthy and resting up and finally, he's fit to return. Orton says that he has one more final check up tomorrow and that's why he couldn't be at Battleground but states as soon as he's cleared- he's coming to Smackdown Live on Tuesday nights!

    The crowd cheer as Jim Ross says that's great news! Ross then says that Orton has been a main event player for over a decade with the WWE- he then ask's how it felt to be on the sidelines and if the landscape in the WWE has changed? Orton replies and says it's not been easy on the sidelines but it's allowed him to reflect and prepare for what's to come. Orton says the landscape has changed but the apex predator will adapt and thrive. Orton says that when he returns to the ring- the WWE Universe will see a viper reborn. They will see a new Orton, refreshed, focused, ready to strike.

    Jim Ross says that he can't wait for Orton's return and hopes to see him this coming Tuesday on Smackdown Live. "JR" then asks one final question and does so with real intrigue. He ask's Orton what's his plans for his return? Randy smiles before his eyes widen and he replies.. Brock Lesnar.

    The crowd cheer as Orton says the name of the Beast. Orton then says that since he's been away, one man has dominated the WWE Universe and has become legendary, feared, makes normal men quake in there boots. Orton says that he knows Brock well.. Really well.. They both came through at OVW and have risen to the top together, taking separate paths, different destiny's, different championships won, amazing moments.. BUT, they've never really crossed paths and it got him thinking? Who would win.. A shark or a crocodile? A Tiger or a Lion? How about my personal favorite.. THE BEAST VS THE VIPER?! Orton says that he's does not know about the first two, but thinks it's time we found out the answer to the Third question at SummerSlam!

    Randy says that he's challenging the Beast to a match at the hottest party of the Summer, SummerSlam. Orton says that unlike Brock, he does not have any enhancements- but he carries enough venom and an RKO out of nowhere to make the Beast, sleep.

    Jim Ross hypes up the encounter of Brock and Randy Orton before thanking Randy for his time. Orton thanks Jim Ross for the interview and says that he hopes to see the WWE Universe soon, real soon. The Titantron then goes dark as the live feed cuts away.

    Match 5. Sami Zayn def. Kevin Owens

    A very heated and intense rivalry came to an end tonight as this was the final showdown between Sami & Owens before both superstars would go to different brands. Both men wrestled a fantastic match as Owens brought the animal out of Sami. Owens & Sami were very aggressive and hard-hitting towards each other as Sami countered everything Owens was throwing at him- with Owens' mind simply on destruction. The finish came when Owens threw Sami onto the ropes to rebound into a Pop-Up Powerbomb- but Sami stayed on the ropes as Owens charged at Sami with a Roundhouse Kick- but Sami countered by rolling Owens up... but Owens kicked out at 2. The two men got up as Owens had Sami in position for a normal Powerbomb- but Sami managed to get out of it by grabbing the ropes, before getting Owens in position for an Exploder Suplex and nailing the move! Sami had Owens ready for a Helluva Kick as the fans cheered Sami on, and Sami blasted Owens in the face! Sami went for the cover, and got the win to a huge pop.

    Match 6. John Cena, Enzo Amore & Big Cass def. The Club

    A very high paced match between both trios as the energy was off the charts! The fans were going nuts for Enzo & Cass, whilst AJ Styles & John Cena received mixed reactions from the Washington throughout the match. Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows also recieved negative reaction. The finish of this match came when Styles & Cena were the legal men. Styles was set out to prove he could beat Cena on his own. Cena had Styles set up for an Attitude Adjustment- but Styles broke out of it before nailing Cena with a Pele Kick! Styles went for the cover, but Cena put his leg on the ropes. This led to Styles getting angry as he picked Cena back up, but Cena pushed Styles away and nailed a Dropkick to Styles! After this, Gallows & Anderson rushed to the ring to attack Cena- but Enzo & Cass made the save as they threw Gallows & Anderson over the top rope. Styles slowly got up to his feet, and Cena nailed him with an AA! Cena covered Styles as he gained the victory!

    Match 7. Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte (c)- WWE Womens Championship Match

    This match had huge implications as we would see which superstar would take the WWE Womens Championship to either Raw or Smackdown! It was also the final showdown between Sasha Banks & Charlotte before both women would go to their separate brands too. This has been a very tense match with Banks being one step closer to achieving her childhood dream as well as Charlotte looking to maintain her status as The Queen. Both women wrestled their hearts out. The finish came when Banks threw Charlotte into the corner. Banks grabbed Charlotte, and attempted to hit a Monkey Flip but Charlotte's heart turned dirty again, just like her father, when she poked Banks in the eye before countering with a Spinebuster to a negative reaction as Sasha hit the canvas! Charlotte showed no remorse, as Banks tried her hardest to get up- but Charlotte quickly responded with a Natural Selection as Banks was down. Charlotte went for the cover and gained the pinfall as she was taking the WWE Womens Championship to Smackdown!

    Afterwards, Charlotte celebrated as Sasha was left in the ring full of shock. Sasha was arguing with the referee due to the referee not seeing the poke to Sasha's eyes, but the referee wasn't having any of it as Sasha was in disbelief.

    Match 8. Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose (c)- WWE Championship Match

    The main event was a match that was 3 years in the making- and the whole world had been waiting for it ever since The Shield split up. The crowd was fully hot before the match, as they were behind Dean Ambrose fully. However, Reigns & Rollins came out to mixed reactions- especially Reigns who was mostly met with a negative response from the crowd.

    Key Moments

    -Ambrose & Rollins teaming up to take out the biggest threat in Reigns as they executed him with a Double Powerbomb. After this, Rollins turned on Ambrose yet again with an Enzuigiri to the head.

    -The three men brawled outside the ring, as a Reigns nailed a devastating Spear to Ambrose through the barricade.

    -All The Shield members were down for a while, but Rollins eventually got up- and he took advantage as he picked Reigns & Ambrose both up- and put them on the announcers table. The crowd was cheering loudly as Rollins entered back into the ring again, and jumped off the turnbuckle with a Phoenix Splash as the announcers table broke into pieces! All three members of The Shield members were down. JR hyped up how all three men were willing to kill each other and themselves to win the WWE Championship.


    Finish

    All three members of The Shield were in the ring. The fans in the Verizon Center were going absolutely nuts for the hard-hitting action in the main event. Ambrose was down, as Rollins & Reigns were battling. Rollins grabbed Reigns, and put him in position for a Pedigree as he was set to hit it- but Reigns used his strength to power out of the hold. Rollins went for a Clothesline but Reigns managed to dodge the move. Both men were full of anger and pride as they turned to each other- but Reigns smashed Rollins with a vicious Superman Punch as Rollins went down.

    Reigns began to roar, to boos from the Washington crowd- as he was pumped up. He waited for Rollins to get up as he was set to finish Rollins off... and he hit Rollins with a devastating Spear! Reigns went for the cover... but the pin was broken at 2 as Dean Ambrose came out of nowhere with a Jumping Elbow Drop onto Reigns & Rollins from the top rope to a HUGE pop! Rollins rolled out to the corner as he was out. Ambrose was beaten and bruised tonight, but that didn't stop him as he grabbed Reigns- and he smashed Reigns' skull onto the canvas with Dirty Deeds! The fans continued to go crazy, as Ambrose covered Reigns... and Ambrose retained the WWE Championship!

    Ambrose celebrated after the match, as he won the hard-fought battle here tonight! The fans chanted 'Ambrose' repeatedly and loudly, as Ambrose raised his title from the top rope to close the show!

    Smackdown killed the Women's picks for me with Becky Lynch going later than expected and adding herself to Charlotte, Asuka, Paige and Natalya. Would be interesting if Charlotte lost the title to give Raw and Sasha especially a big rub.

    Keep eps up the good work lads. I'll be reading.
    Thanks for your thoughts dude, appreciate you taking the time to check out our booker.

    Hopefully you enjoy what's to come!

    Raw Re: Deco & Shaz Present WWE: Smackdown vs. Raw!

    A video package begins to play on the TitanTron before we start Raw.

    NARRATOR: Battleground.

    The Battleground logo appears as it begins to play highlights from Raw's side of results at last night's PPV event.

    NARRATOR: Darkness conquered the light.

    We see Bray Wyatt nailing a baffled Xavier Woods with a Sister Abigail before covering him for the win.

    NARRATOR: Odds were defied.

    Sami Zayn is shown gaining his revenge on Kevin Owens with a Helluva Kick followed by a cover- as well as John Cena, Enzo Amore & Big Cass defeating The Club.

    NARRATOR: Some were left disappointed.

    Sasha Banks is shown after failing to capture the WWE Womens Championship from Charlotte, as well as Bob Backlund walking away from Darren Young following DY's loss to The Miz.

    NARRATOR: But all champions retained their gold.

    Dean Ambrose is shown raising the WWE Championship, as well as The Miz as he holds up his Intercontinental Championship. Rusev & Charlotte from Smackdown are also shown raising the US Championship and the Womens Championship respectively.

    NARRATOR: Destinations have been chosen.

    We see the graphics of the likes of John Cena, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose & Sasha Banks who have been drafted to Raw. And we also see shots of Charlotte, AJ Styles, Seth Rollins & Randy Orton representing Smackdown.

    NARRATOR: But starting from tonight? We usher into a new era of...

    MONDAY NIGHT RAW!



    July 25th 2016 - Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania



    The camera cuts to the Consol Energy Arena as the fans are full of excitement and hype following the opening video package. We see the red pyros exploding on the new stage, and we head over to the commentary table as we have Corey Graves, Michael Cole & Mauro Ranallo on commentary!

    Ranallo welcomes the fans to Monday Night Raw, and he is delighted to be on the announcers table alongside Michael Cole & Corey Graves. Cole says we are fresh out of Battleground- and tonight is the beginning of a new era for Raw! Graves says that we will kick things off tonight with a few announcements from the Commissioner as well as the General Manager of Raw!

    WELCOME TO THE QUEENDOM

    The music of Raw's Commissioner blasts around the arena as the fans erupt with a mixed reaction. Stephanie McMahon comes out with a mic in her hand, as she makes her way to the ring with a smile on her face. She stands in the centre of the ring as she begins to speak.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON: Welcome to a NEW era of Monday Night Raw!

    Loud cheers from the fans in Pittsburgh tonight.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON: I can feel the energy in the building tonight... it's absolutely amazing. But I want to see the energy get bigger.. better... and louder. And what is the best way to do that? Well... I will start off by introducing Pittsburgh to the NEW General Manager of Monday Night Raw...

    DANIEL BRYAN!

    FLIGHT OF THE VALKYRIES

    A HUGE pop for the G.O.A.T tonight as Daniel Bryan comes out to the stage with a huge grin on his face. The fans begin a 'YES!' chant as Bryan is clearly happy to be here tonight. He raises his hands in the air, and begins to chant 'YES!' while making his way to the ring. He joins Stephanie McMahon, before getting a mic as Bryan speaks.

    DANIEL BRYAN: Thank you for the introduction Stephanie... I really appreciate it. But tonight isn't about me. Tonight... it's about the WWE Universe. So Pittsburgh, Pennysylvania...

    WELCOME TO MONDAY NIGHT RAW!

    Big pop for Daniel Bryan as the fans are clearly loving the choice of Raw's GM!

    DANIEL BRYAN: I am absolutely honored to be standing here tonight as the General Manager of WWE's flagship show. But despite Raw being WWE's flagship show.. it doesn't change the fact that myself, the WWE Universe & Stephanie McMahon will bring change to Monday nights. We made some excellent acquisitions in the draft, and a new leaf has been turned over. So I want to start off by bringing the entire Raw roster to the stage out here tonight.

    The superstars that were drafted to Monday nights all make their way out to the stage as the fans continue to be full of excitement. The entire Raw roster is out as Bryan continue to speak.

    DANIEL BRYAN
    : So firstly, I'm going to begin by addressing the WWE Champion himself... DEAN AMBROSE!

    The camera cuts to Ambrose standing on the stage along with other members of the roster as the fans go nuts for the champion.

    DANIEL BRYAN: Battleground was a very big night for you. And we want to congratulate you for winning the highly anticipated Triple Threat Match featuring all ex members of The Shield- and taking the WWE Championship to Monday Night Raw. I have no doubt that Dean Ambrose has the ability to make the WWE Championship more prestigious then ever. And as we begin the road to Summerslam tonight, I will make my first announcement regarding the WWE Championship.

    In tonight's main event of Raw... we will have a Fatal Four Way to determine a NEW #1 contender for the WWE Championship at Summerslam.

    Cheers from the crowd as Ambrose nods in approval.

    DANIEL BRYAN: The participants will be...

    Dolph Ziggler.


    A huge pop from the fans as the camera shows the Show-Off.

    Ryback.

    Boos from Pittsburgh as the camera cuts to the confident Human Wrecking Ball.

    Sheamus.

    Another negative reaction from the fans in attendance as we see The Celtic Warrior smirking.

    And Roman Reigns.

    Pittsburgh explodes with mixed reactions with mostly boos as the camera cuts to The Big Dog! Roman looks very serious tonight due to last night's loss at Battleground. Stephanie begins to speak.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON: Now THAT is a huge main event for Raw tonight, as the winner goes to Summerslam... but that's not all! We've got another champion here tonight, the man who holds the Intercontinental Championship... THE MIZ!

    The camera shows The Miz smirking as he stands alongside his wife, Maryse.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON:
    Congratulations on defeating Darren Young at Battleground to retain your title. When you are the champion, it's not just about winning the title- it's about being the workhorse of the company... which is why we're going to have another Fatal 4 Way Match tonight to determine a #1 contender for the Intercontinental Championship at Summerslam!

    Another pop from the fans, but The Miz doesn't look too happy about Stephanie's announcement.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON: The participants of this match will be...

    Erick Rowan.

    Mixed reaction from the crowd as Erick Rowan is standing on the stage with his creepy new mask on.

    Cesaro.

    The fans pop for The Swiss Superman who is suited and booted tonight.

    Darren Young.

    A light pop for Young who stands on the stage with Backlund, still disappointed from last night's loss to The Miz.

    And Sami Zayn.

    Huge ovation for Sami who is full of momentum right now following his win over former best friend Kevin Owens at Battleground.

    DANIEL BRYAN: And that's enough from us. We have made our announcements, and now it's time for the Raw roster to show exactly why Raw will continue to be WWE's flagship brand. We will kick things off tonight with the first Fatal Four Way for a shot at the Intercontinental Championship. Ladies and gentleman, we hope you enjoy the show!

    More cheers from the fans as the roster begins to head to the back apart from the participants in the first Fatal 4 Way Match as we head to a commercial.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The camera cuts back to the ring as we see the four participants all vying for a shot at the Intercontinental Championship. Cole talks about how Sami Zayn is the Underdog From The Underground but in his eyes- he is the favorite to win here tonight following his huge win at Battleground. Graves says that he sees Darren Young as the underdog tonight after losing his title match last night, but he sees Young as the man with the biggest point to prove tonight. Ranallo says that we can't rule out the Swiss Cyborg or The Face of Vengeance. Cesaro also has a point to prove, and Rowan is hot off a big win from Battleground. This will be a very unpredictable match in his eyes.

    Match 1: Erick Rowan vs. Cesaro vs. Darren Young (w. Bob Backund) vs. Sami Zayn- Fatal 4 Way Match- Winner challenges The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship at Summerslam

    Finish: The first match of Raw tonight proved to be a fantastic one with the 4 superstars giving it their all as they were determined to go to Summerslam with a title shot. The finish of this match comes when it's just Young & Rowan in the ring- as Darren Young has the momentum on his side.

    Young has Rowan locked in the Crossface Chickenwing as Bob Backlund cheers Young on... but Sami Zayn rushes into the ring to break the hold as the fans cheer! Sami grabs Young, and nails him with an Corner Exploder Suplex as Young crashes on the corner. Sami begins to get hyped up, as the fans are clearly on his side. Sami motions for a Helluva Kick as he waits for Young to turn around...

    But Cesaro enters the ring as he gets in the way of Darren Young to stop Sami's momentum- but this doesn't stop Sami! Sami instead goes for the Helluva Kick to Cesaro, but Cesaro sees it coming as he grabs Sami's feet and throws it down. Cesaro lines Sami up... DROPKICK to Sami!

    Sami lands all the way to the second corner in the left hand side of the ring as Erick Rowan is also on the first corner. Darren Young is still on the corner of the right hand side of the ring as Cesaro now has the momentum. The fans begin to cheer as Cesaro runs to Rowan... UPPERCUT TO ROWAN! Ranello hypes up how the superstars are being taken to Uppercut Express baby! Cesaro also runs towards Sami Zayn... UPPERCUT TO SAMI! But he isn't done there- as Cesaro also charges at Young... UPPERCUT TO YOUNG!

    The fans are going absolutely nuts for Cesaro, but he isn't finished! Cesaro grabs Young, bends him towards his mid-section...




    NEUTRALIZER!! Ranello shouts Mamma Mia due to Young's head being crushed onto the canvas by the Swiss Cyborg! Cesaro covers Young as the referee begins to count.. and CESARO IS GOING TO SUMMERSLAM!

    Spoiler:

    WINNER: CESARO


    The fans explode with a pop for the Swiss superstar as Cesaro has earned a shot at the Intercontinental Championship for Summerslam! The referee raises Cesaro's hand- as Cesaro looks chuffed following his hard-fought victory. However, the camera cuts to the Intercontinental Champion himself, The Miz as he stands with his wife Maryse to watch Cesaro celebrating on the TV monitor. The Miz looks very angry, before Charly Caruso enters the shot.

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    Hey, can I get a moment?

    The Miz & Maryse turn to Caruso in anger.

    THE MIZ: What the hell do you want?

    CHARLY CARUSO: Well... as you can see- Cesaro is the new #1 contender for your Intercontinental Championship at Summerslam... but you don't exactly look happy about it... Do you feel threatened by Cesaro?

    The Miz looks at his wife in shock, before looking back at Caruso.

    THE MIZ:
    Really? Really? REALLY?! You honestly think for a second that I feel threatened by a man who I have defeated SEVERAL times? What a stupid question from a stupid interviewee... I mean, who the hell even are you?

    Caruso looks a bit scared as Miz manages to calm down.

    THE MIZ: I don't feel threatened by Cesaro at all... but what really annoys me... what really irks me is that I have beaten Cesaro multiple times. As a matter of fact- I've lost count of how many times I have beat Cesaro in the ring.

    Miz speaks with anger in his tone.

    THE MIZ: I couldn't care less if he is the #1 contender to MY title or not... but I'm not going to do it. I'm NOT facing Cesaro at Summerslam. I REFUSE to face Cesaro at Summerslam.

    CHARLY CARUSO: But the match has already been made official, and...

    THE MIZ: I DON'T CARE! I am NOT facing a man who I have beaten time, after time, after time. And if you don't believe me? Well you need to check the history books because they DON'T lie. So let me make this clear- so as long as Cesaro is #1 contender to MY title...

    ...

    I'm not even going to show up at Summerslam.


    Boos can be heard from the fans in attendance tonight with Miz making his intentions for Summerslam very clear tonight.

    The camera cuts back to the arena as we head over to the commentary. Ranallo hypes up how we've had an explosive opener tonight as Cesaro will be facing The Miz at Summerslam! Cole talks about how The Miz clearly isn't on the same wavelength as anybody here tonight, as he's made it clear that he's not going to turn up to Summerslam as long as Cesaro is #1 contender. Graves says that The Miz seemed very serious about not going to Summerslam, but he states that this is not Miz' decision to make.

    AUSTIN ARIES: Because I've always had the full package.

    Aries is shown hitting the Discus Fivearm on multiple superstars on NXT.

    AUSTIN ARIES:

    AUSTIN ARIES: But none of those guys are great like me...

    Aries is shown locking superstars from NXT in the Last Chancery.

    AUSTIN ARIES: Because I'm The Greatest Man That Ever Lived.

    Aries finally looks towards the camera, before taking his shades off with a confident smirk on his face...

    AUSTIN ARIES: And I'm coming.



    The date for Aries' arrival is shown.

    21/8/16

    Ranallo hypes up how The Common Denominator of Greatness will be arriving to the WWE on the 21th August 2016, which is the date for this year's Summerslam! Cole says that is a huge acquisition from NXT as he wonders how Aries will fare on Monday nights. Graves talks about how Aries has had many classic matches in his career, and he's won championships all around the world. Raw will get even more better with the addition of Aries. Ranallo says that up next... we have Tag Team action featuring 1 of our 2 debuts tonight on Raw. And not that just... we also have an ex-tag team returning to the Monday nights!

    TEAM SPIRIT

    Pittsburgh display their negativity towards the music, as Kenny & Mikey come out from The Spirit Squad! Boos can be heard for the two men, and they make their way down to the ring with smiles on their face as they are full of spirit tonight. Cole talks about how Spirit Squad are former World Tag Team Champions, winning the title 10 years ago on April 3rd 2006.

    ELITE

    A HUGE pop here tonight for the debuting tag team from NXT, as American Alpha come out to the stage. Chad Gable & Jason Jordan look absolutely fired up tonight as they make their way to the ring to- feeling confident heading towards this match. Ranallo says that American Alpha used to be the NXT Tag Team Champions. In his mind- they are without a doubt the future of the Tag Team division!

    Match 2: American Alpha vs. The Spirit Squad

    Finish: This match has been a fantastic showcase for American Alpha as they've shown off their impressive chemistry as a tag team. Kenny & Mikey got little offense in during the match. The finish comes when Gable & Mikey are the legal men. Gable hits an Alpha Plex on Mikey before covering him- but Kenny rushes into the ring to break the cover. This leads to Jordan entering, and taking out Kenny with a vicious Clothesline! Jordan kicks Kenny out of the ring, before he picks Mikey. Gable gets up to, as the two men put Mikey in position... GRAND AMPLITUDE! Gable goes for the cover... as American Alpha win on their debut match!

    Spoiler:

    WINNERS: AMERICAN ALPHA


    The referee raise American Alpha's hands in the air as the fans continue to cheer for American Alpha. Ranallo says that American Alpha have just proved exactly why they are the hottest tag team in the WWE today! The camera goes backstage as we cut to Dolph Ziggler in the locker room! The fans cheer loudly for The Show-Off as Ziggler is warming up for the Fatal 4 Way main event match tonight. Mike Rome enters the shot.

    MIKE ROME: Hey Dolph, can I have a moment?

    Dolph turns to Rome.

    DOLPH ZIGGLER: Sure.

    MIKE ROME:
    You have a Fatal 4 Match in the main event tonight- as the winner will earn a #1 contendership for the WWE Championship at Summerslam against Dean Ambrose. Ziggler, what is your mindset heading into this match?

    Ziggler speaks.

    DOLPH ZIGGLER:
    You know what Mike, I didn't even have a match on Smackdown Live at the night of the Draft. I wasn't even featured last night at Battleground either. I was very frustrated- because we're meant to be in the New Era... but why did it still feel like Dolph Ziggler wasn't going anywhere?

    But now, I'm glad that I have an opportunity to finally climb my way up to the top again. This announcement was huge for me, because I haven't had a chance to earn a shot at the WWE Championship in a long time. Tonight is the first Raw since the brand split- and I'm going to make it memorable when I steal the show, and win the Fatal 4 Way to become the #1 contender for the WWE Championship.


    MIKE ROME: Thank you for your time Ziggler.

    Ziggler nods at Rome, before continuing his warm up as Rome walks off. We go to another break.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The camera cuts to Charly Caruso.

    CHARLY CARUSO: Ladies and gentleman, my guests at this time- American Alpha!

    Pittsburgh cheers loudly yet again for Chad Gable & Jason Jordan as they are backstage for an interview.

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    American Alpha, congratulations on winning your debut match on Raw tonight against The Spirit Squad. Raw is a big step up from NXT- but I want to know, do you guys feel any pressure being on Monday nights?

    American Alpha look confident as Jordan speaks.

    JASON JORDAN:
    Charly, there's no doubt that the pressure is high because American Alpha have arrived to the big leagues. However, we proved that we thrive on that pressure too. It's a different environment here on Raw compared to NXT- but the competition looks tough. But we have already got off to a great start as we dominated Spirit Squad before defeating them.

    CHAD GABLE: Jordan's right. We were successful over in NXT, as we are former NXT Tag Team Champions. Me & my man Jordan also used to be amateur wrestlers, so we certainly aren't rookies either. Mauro Ranallo said it himself, American Alpha are the hottest tag team in the WWE today. All we need to do is gain more wins on our journey to achieving another one of our dreams... which is to win the WWE Tag Team Championship.

    JASON JORDAN: The fans have responded positively to us, and we won our first match so tonight? We proved exactly why we deserved to be the first tag team picked on Monday nights. And me & Chad can say that for the first time on Monday Night Raw...

    Jordan & Gable stare at each other before looking back at Caruso in determination.

    BOTH: That we are Ready...

    Willing...

    And Gable.


    Jordan & Gable show off their Ready, Willing and Gable rally towels as we head back to ringside.

    We go back to the commentators as Ranallo says that up next- we will see our two debuts on Monday Night Raw as Alexa Bliss from NXT makes her debut in a match against another women from NXT- Blue Pants! The camera proceeds to the ring as we see NXT's Blue Pants warming up in the ring- ready for Womens action.

    SPITEFUL

    The music of Alexa Bliss blasts in the Consol Energy Arena as Alexa comes out to make her Raw debut! Alexa makes her way to the ring, eyes locked on Blue Pants as she's ready for action.

    Match 3: Alexa Bliss vs. Blue Pants

    Finish: This was a dominant showcase for Alexa Bliss as Alexa was full of offense- and Blue Pants stood no chance. Bliss absolutely toyed with Blue Pants tonight, as she looked to make it clear why she was Miss Five Feet of Fury. Alexa finished Blue Pants off with a Snap DDT before covering her for the win.

    WINNER: ALEXA BLISS

    After the match, the referee goes to raise Alexa's hand- but Alexa refuses before shouting for a mic. Alexa stands in the centre of the ring as she's about to speak.

    ALEXA BLISS:
    THIS is what I get in my debut match? A women that goes by the name of Blue Pants?

    Alexa nods in disapproval.

    ALEXA BLISS:
    What a let-down. I have to start off my Raw career by facing trash like this?

    Alexa points at Blue Pants as trash before looking back at the crowd.

    ALEXA BLISS: Hmmmm. Well I guess it makes sense, doesn't it? I was going through my Twitter feed earlier- and it seems like the WWE Universe didn't want to see me on Raw OR Smackdown. People don't think that I deserve to be competing at such a high level as this.

    Alexa begins to get sarcastic.

    ALEXA BLISS: Well boo-hoo. That is honestly such a shame, due to the fact that I have graced Monday Night Raw with the presence of a Goddess. And it doesn't matter anybody thinks... because Alexa Bliss is the best thing to happen in the Womens Division today...

    And there isn't anything that YOU people can do about it.

    The fans begin to boo loudly as Alexa laughs.

    SKY'S THE LIMIT

    Alexa Bliss is interrupted by the music of Sasha Banks as Pittsburgh explodes with a huge pop! 'The Boss' makes her way to the ring with a mic, as she doesn't seem to agree with Alexa's choice of words.

    SASHA BANKS: Wait, hold on a second. Did I just hear that correctly? Alexa Bliss is the best women in the division? Pittsburgh, don't ever listen to anything that comes out of that girl's match because Alexa... while you might have just gained a victory tonight over Blue Pants.

    You've only been here for 5 seconds boo.

    Fans cheer for Sasha as Alexa looks unfazed.

    SASHA BANKS: But if there is anyone that can stake a claim at being the best women on Monday Night Raw- then be sure to mention The Boss because Sasha Banks is on Monday nights and I'm here to stay!

    More cheers for The Boss.

    SASHA BANKS: But Alexa... if you really wanna prove yourself? If you really wanna prove... that you're the best? Then why don't you go one on one with me tonight because I'd love to show you who The Boss is around here.

    Another pop as Sasha eyes Alexa up, and shouts 'prove it' as Alexa speaks again. Alexa begins to jokingly cough.

    ALEXA BLISS: Wow... you really think you're all that, don't you Sasha? Now you want to talk about how The Boss is this... The Boss is that... but you got off on a bad start heading into Raw. I mean, if you're really the best...

    Then why did you fail to beat Charlotte and fail to bring the Womens Championship to Raw?

    Sasha & Alexa begin to staredown as things get very intense in the ring...

    SO COOL

    However, the music of Summer Rae blasts in the arena as Sasha & Alexa turn to the stage. Summer comes out with a mic, and she makes her way to the ring whilst talking.

    SUMMER RAE: The First Lady of WWE is here so show some respect!

    Crowd begins to boo as Summer enters the ring.

    SUMMER RAE: Because I am sick and tired of not being shown any respect by anybody in the WWE. I am being overlooked for other women, and waiting for my opportunity to win gold. Before the brand extension, I had been wresting on Raw for 4 years. That's 4 years of waiting around and being given NOTHING. Where the hell is my opportunity? When is The First Lady of WWE going to be given the chance to shine? From the way I look at it...

    I have been FORGOTTEN about in this Womens Revolution!


    Fans begin to boo as Summer turns to Alexa.

    SUMMER RAE: Alexa Bliss... you are very talented- and I really... really do believe that you have a bright future here in the WWE. So I can assure you that I definitely don't have a problem with you.

    Alexa nods in approval.

    SUMMER RAE: But on the other hand, I am asking all these questions- but I came to a conclusion as to why I'm being forgotten about. I know exactly why the spotlight isn't on my pretty face...

    Summer stares at Sasha.

    SUMMER RAE: And it's because of the likes of you.

    The fans boo as Sasha looks annoyed. Summer continues to speak.

    SUMMER RAE: Women that always get opportunities handed to them. Women that simply can't get the job done. You've had multiple chances to win the WWE Womens Championship, but what do you go and do?

    You screw it up like always.

    Sasha begins to get angry at Summer as Summer gets in Sasha's face. Alexa clearly finds this all amusing.

    SUMMER RAE:
    As Alexa stated, you had the chance to bring the Womens Championship to Raw- but you failed... and you want to talk about how you are The Boss? You aren't The Boss of anything. There's only one thing that you are...

    And that is a failure.

    More boos from the crowd as Alexa laughs- clearly agreeing with Summer as Sasha continues to get angry.

    SUMMER RAE: Because not only did you let YOURSELF down...

    You let the entire Raw Womens Division down too.

    Loud boos for Summer as Alexa agrees. Sasha isn't too happy as Summer steps back from Sasha- and Sasha speaks.

    SASHA BANKS: Yeah I did let myself down.. but I don't give a damn whether I let the Raw Womens division down or not because we're all in this for ourselves. I walked into that match, and I gave it my all- but Charlotte proved exactly why she ain't no joke around here. She's one of the best athletes in the WWE today, and she proved it last night. But I will tell you this Summer... if you ever get in my face again?..

    I will slap the taste right out of your mouth.

    Loud cheers for Sasha as she speaks with fire. Summer goes to reply but...

    PARTY

    Alicia Fox's music hits as Foxy comes out to a light pop from the fans. Alicia enters the ring with a mic as she points at Summer Rae and begins to speak.

    ALICIA FOX: Summer Rae... you wanna talk about how you've been wrestling on Raw for 4 years? I have been in the WWE for 8 years, which is more than every single women in this ring combined.

    Foxy lays out the facts as she continues.

    ALICIA FOX: Let's not forget that I am a former Divas Champion around here so there's no denying that I'm a veteran. And not just that, but I can rightfully say that Alicia Fox has the BEST Northern Lights Suplex in the wrestling industry today.

    Alicia smiles at herself in approval as she stands next to Sasha Banks.

    ALICIA FOX: I've also seen the Women's division evolve, and no doubt has it been a positive change- but Summer... Alexa... You two wanna give Sasha a hard time? Well how does it feel knowing that she has made more of an impact in the WWE in the past year than you both have in your entire careers.

    The fans cheer loudly as Alicia & Sasha nod at each other in respect, with Sasha smiling.

    ALICIA FOX: But that's not why I'm out here... I don't want to hear anymore talking because the Women's division didn't get to where it is today by talking. We all got here because of one thing...

    And that's fighting.

    And I'm here to prove exactly why Alicia Fox is the TOP women in this division.

    ...

    And Alicia BASHES Summer Rae in the head with the mic as the fans erupt. This leads to Sasha Banks trading shots with Alexa Bliss and Alicia Fox at blows with Summer Rae as we have a brawl here tonight! Summer Rae goes to kick Alicia in the mid-section, but Alicia sees it coming before grabbing Summer's foot- throwing it down, and knocking Summer over the top rope and out of the ring.

    On the other hand, Sasha & Alexa continue to brawl before Sasha has Alexa in position for her finisher... BANKRUPT! Alexa crashes on the canvas before rolling out of the ring as the faces clear house tonight. The fans are cheering loudly for Alicia & Sasha- as Alicia puts her hand out to Sasha signalling the respect she has for her. Sasha is set to shake Alicia's hand but...

    TIME TO RISE

    The music of Eva Marie hits as Pittsburgh react with deafening boos for All Red Everything. The lights in the arena go red as all the women turn to the stage. A voice over begins to play and the Pennsylvania crowd explode in a frenzy of boos as Eva Marie comes out to the stage in a glamorous white robe.

    NARRATOR: From Concord, California, comes the most stylish, elegant, bewitching, eternally beguiling, contentiously charismatic, and fantastically fascinating woman to appear in this or any arena.

    Allow yourself to be seduced, enchanted, dazzled, and entranced by All Red Everything herself...


    EVA MARIE!

    Eva Marie poses around the stage as the other women look on, clearly not impressed. Eva continues to pose with Summer & Alexa looking on from outside the ring, whereas Sasha & Alicia stand tall in the ring- not looking bothered about Eva's presence... but Eva couldn't care less as she blows a kiss to everybody in the arena.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    We immediately head over to the commentary booth as Cole talks about how things in the Raw Womens division heated up tonight and got very tense. Ranallo says that's exactly how it should be, the more competitive the women are- the better the division will be. Corey Graves questions if Eva Marie will be able to hang in the ring with likes of Sasha Banks & Summer Rae despite having such a big entrance. Ranallo says that if any women is going to be the face of the Women's division, his pick is Sasha Banks.

    The camera cuts backstage as we see Roman Reigns- and Pittsburgh explodes with loud boos for The Juggernaut. Reigns has a very determined look on his face, as he has his eyes on the camera- and he speaks.

    ROMAN REIGNS: It's not everyday you get a second chance- but tonight, I've most certainly got one when I compete in the main event tonight. I lost the WWE Championship at Money in the Bank, and I failed to regain it at Battleground in The Shield Triple Threat Match.

    But I'm not gonna focus on the past, because it's all about the present. I feel as determined as ever, and I will not give my opponents a chance for any breathers because we're going to war...


    Reigns gets very serious.

    ROMAN REIGNS: But it's a war that I'm gonna win.

    Reigns gets even more and more intense.

    ROMAN REIGNS:
    I will go on to face my brother Dean Ambrose at Summerslam...

    I will take the WWE Championship away from him...

    And you can BELIEVE that.


    Roman speaks with intensity as the fans can be heard booing loudly. The camera cuts off as it heads to the ring as we see Curtis Axel warming up for action. Axel is introduced as Mr. Irrelevant due to being picked #35 in the draft as Cole & Graves make fun of Axel for being picked last. Ranallo hypes up how Axel goes one on one with The Franchise!

    MY TIME IS NOW

    A HUGE reaction for John Cena as The Franchise comes out to very loud boos and cheers from the fans. Cena comes out, and he acknowledges the boos & cheers by nodding at the camera. He makes his way to the ring as he's ready for action.

    Match 4: John Cena vs. Curtis Axel

    Finish: Surprisingly, this match has been very back and forth as both men were getting lots of offense on each other. Axel was looking to prove himself due to his anger at being named Mr. Irrelevant, and he did his absolute best to try and overcome The Franchise. But Cena was clearly at his best tonight as he also had the momentum from the win at Battleground. The finish came when Axel was set to hit the Axe-Hole on Cena... but Cena used all his strength to get out of the position. Axel had to turn around as Cena went for a shot to the face but Axel ducked it it- before grabbing Cena and going for a Backbreaker... but Cena breaks out of it again as Cena grabs hold of the ropes- whilst Axel gets frustrated. Axel lets go off Cena... but Cena kicks Axel in the mid-section viciously! Cena gets the advantage, and he puts Axel in position for an Attitude Adjustment... AND HE HITS IT!! Axel goes down as Cena goes for the cover... and Cena gets the win!

    Spoiler:

    WINNER: JOHN CENA


    The fans respond with mixed reactions- but mostly cheers as Cena defeats Axel! The referee raises Cena's hand in the ring- as Axel rolls out of the ring. The camera cuts to Axel looking very frustrated following the loss. Corey Graves says that Axel's face is looking more and more angry... and Graves is correct as Axel walks over to the steel steps. He begins to kick it as the fans notice.

    Axel grabs hold of the the steel steps with bad intentions. He picks it up before THROWING it on the canvas as Axel is just can't contain his anger and emotions here tonight. Cena looks on from outside the ring in confusion.

    A furious Axel walks over to the commentators, as he screams 'I'm Mr. Irrelevant huh?!' as Axel makes it clear as to why he's so frustrated here tonight. Axel begins to tear the commentary table out as Ranallo, Graves & Cole all get up- not knowing what Axel is going to do, but Cena walks outside the ring as he's seen enough.

    But Cena doesn't attack Axel, he walks over to Axel as he can be heard mouthing 'Just head to the back man. You need to calm down.' Axel gets in Cena's face, and it looks as if Axel is going to do something- but Axel backs off before walking away to the back as he puts his palms on his face in devastation.


    Cena heads back to the ring with a mic as he begins to speak.

    JOHN CENA: We have an ANGRY Curtis Axel on Raw tonight!

    The fans cheer loudly as Cena continues.

    JOHN CENA: But make no mistake about it, I'mma give respect where respect is due. When it comes to this ring- Axel does it like no other... and in my eyes? Axel gave me one hell of a fight, and he doesn't deserve to be classed as Mr. Irrelevant because Axel earned my respect.

    The fans begin an 'Axel' chant as Cena approves.

    JOHN CENA: Now let me switch the subject up a little, because I have some unfinished business with a very specific individual in the WWE. He just so happens to be Phenomenal... so AJ Styles- what's poppin'?

    Mixed reactions for the mention of AJ Styles. The fans then begin to chant 'AJ Styles' loudly as Cena starts to get serious.

    JOHN CENA: Listen up AJ... because I know you're watching the flagship show right now. You might have been drafted to Smackdown, but you think that just because we're on different brands... that this rivalry is over?

    Hell NO with that BS because I'm not finished with you.

    The fans cheer in excitement as Cena isn't stopping.

    JOHN CENA:
    At Money in the Bank- it was meant to be a dream match. A match that had never been seen before- and everybody got excited.. even me. But AJ ended up ruining what should've been more of a greater moment by bringing in Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows to give himself some assist.

    And then you beat me.

    It should've been a fair one on one match where the fans could finally see whether it was The Phenominal or The Franchise that was running this place- and you had to go and spoil the moment. But let's not get it twisted... last night at Battleground? I got a win back with the help of Enzo & Big Cass as we defeated The Club.


    Pops for the mentions of Enzo & Big Cass.

    JOHN CENA: Yeah, I wish we could of had them on Raw too... but I guess you can't teach that. As for AJ? We still ain't over because we are tied with one win each... and that makes us even. And I don't give a damn what brand you're on... because when it comes to AJ Styles...

    We need another match to determine a true winner.

    The fans explode at the possibility of AJ Styles vs. John Cena II.

    JOHN CENA: You've proven to me that you can beat me... but only with the help of The Club. You also proved that you can lose against me.. even with The Club. But what I really want you to prove is if you can beat me without The Club. AJ Styles is as unique as it gets when it comes to this ring... and you've been the face of every single company you have walked into except the WWE...

    So I'm throwing down the challenge.

    Cena gets intense.

    JOHN CENA: Let's do AJ Styles vs. John Cena II at Summerslam.

    The fans pop very loudly as they clearly agree.

    JOHN CENA:
    We're on different lands but we can't end on no funny business. You might call yourself The Phenominal... but I'm the Franchise of this damn company 'till the day that I hang up my sneakers- and everybody wants to know if you're man enough to play in the big leagues by yourself... so let's go again at Summerslam.

    I'm ready to knock you out and kick you down because in case you need reminding of something...


    I'm John Cena... RECOGNIZE!

    JHEEZE! The fans continue to pop loudly as Cena drops the mic before exiting the ring, and Ranallo says that John Cena has spoken as he has laid down the challenge- but how will AJ Styles respond? Will he even respond tomorrow night? So many questions that are waiting to be answered! Graves talks about how the WWE Universe wants to see John Cena & AJ Styles go at it again one last time at Summerslam. Graves says that we are going to head backstage as there seems to be some disruption in the back.

    The camera cuts backstage as we see Curtis Axel throwing food off the catering tables- before grabbing the catering tables and throwing them in the air. Axel continues to flip as he walks over to a chair before picking it up and bashing the floor repeatedly over and over again as Charly Caruso enters the shot.

    CHARLY CARUSO: Axel... can I please get a moment?

    Axel looks at Caruso as he is full of anger and despair.

    CHARLY CARUSO: I can see that you're very angry right now... do you have any thoughts following your loss to John Cena?

    CURTIS AXEL: Oh I've got many thoughts Charly... I'm full of emotions right now. Angry. Confused. Disappointed. You know I've been busting my ass in the WWE for last 9 years to be one of the greatest. I wanted to be something so I could make my father proud... and I thought that with the brand extension- everything would change for me, but I couldn't have been anymore wrong.

    Because I was the LAST pick in the draft loterry.

    Caruso nods.

    CURTIS AXEL:
    And now because of that one fact that wasn't even my fault... I'm known as Mr. Irrelevant- and that is FAR from perfect. Do you have ANY idea how that feels for me? I was trained by the very BEST... all everybody does is expect great things from me. And I know my match with Cena was one of the best matches I've ever had in my career... but I still lost.

    And nobody thinks I'm good enough.

    Axel says that with distress as Charly shows sympathy.

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    I understand why you're so frustrated.. but what's next? What exactly does this mean for Curtis Axel?

    CURTIS AXEL: If I have to be completely honest... I honestly don't know. I think I need to rethink my career options because this clearly isn't working. We might be in a new era and all...

    But I don't think this business is for me anymore.

    Axel seems very adamant about rethinking his career as he walks off with Charly looking on.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The camera cuts back to the announcers table as Mauro Ranallo says they have just received word that Paul Heyman will be here on Monday Night Raw next week with his advocate Brock Lesnar to address Randy Orton's challenge for a showdown at Summerslam! Graves hypes up how this should be huge, and he's looking forward to hearing what Heyman & Lesnar have to say- but up next, we have some Tag Team action! Graves says that two unique tag teams go at it tonight as Golden Truth face The Ascension!

    WHAT'S UP

    The fans respond with a light pop as R-Truth comes out! Truth has a mic in his hand, as he begins to rap to get the fans hyped up.

    GOLD-LUST

    And the crowd respond with an even louder pop for the music of Goldust! Goldust joins his tag team partner the stage as the two men make their way to the ring. Truth continues to rap as they await their opponents...

    REBELLION

    The lights go out- as red lights begin to flash in the arena, and the music of The Ascension blares on the speaker system as Konnor & Viktor come out! The two men walk down the aisle looking very threatening as they enter the ring.

    Match 5: Golden Truth vs. The Ascension

    Finish: Whilst Golden Truth did manage to get some offense in- it was The Ascension who dominated this match as they were looking to make it clear exactly who they were. The Ascension showed signs of dominance which was reminiscent of their NXT days, as Golden Truth showed heart. Goldust & Truth were coming back for more and more, but it just wasn't enough. The finish came when The Ascension nailed R-Truth with the Fall of Man, before Konnor covered Truth for the win!

    Spoiler:

    WINNERS: THE ASCENSION


    The Ascension begin to raise their hands in victory as they kick off their Raw career with a dominating win over Golden Truth. On the other hand, Goldust enters the ring to check on his tag team partner as Truth is clearly hurting. Konnor & Viktor look down at Goldust attending to his partner, and The Ascension begin to smirk in a very sly manner. Ranallo states that the smirk on The Ascension's face suggests that trouble is calling...

    And Ranallo couldn't have been more correct as Konnor walks over to Goldust and nails him with a big boot to the face as the fans boo loudly. Konnor begins to repeatedly pounce on Goldust with kicks to the head as Viktor turns his attention to Truth. Viktor also begins to erupt with shots to the face of Truth, before he kicks Truth out of the ring! However, that just makes things worse for Goldust as he is outnumbered- with Truth clearly not being in the condition to fight. Konnor takes a step back as Viktor walks to the other corner . Konnor looks at Viktor, and nods in approval as Goldust slowly begins to make his way back to his feet. The Ascension begin to line Goldust up to finish him off...



    FALL OF MAN TO GOLDUST!!

    The fans continue to boo as Konnor raises his hand in victory, whilst Viktor kneels down and the two men pose after the destruction they have just caused. Cole talks about how The Ascension look as threatening as ever... they just sent a big message to the Raw Tag Team division- and the Raw Tag Team division should be alarmed.

    We immediately head backstage as we see Ryback on his own, warming up for his big main event opportunity. He looks into the camera as he begins to speak.

    RYBACK:
    Tonight I prove to the world exactly why the main event is MINE for the taking. I am the one with everything to gain but nothing to lose because I have never held a world title in the WWE.

    But as for the other three men? They have all been world champions at some point in their careers. I am the only one who hasn't been at the top of the food chain, but I don't give a damn whether you're Dolph Ziggler... whether you're Sheamus... or even Roman Reigns... because I am The Big Guy...


    However, the mood switches up immediately as a catering man walks past Ryback nonchalantly. The Big Guy looks very annoyed by this as he shouts at the catering man...

    RYBACK: What the hell do you think you're doing?

    Oh oh. The catering man turns around, and looks up at Ryback with a look of fear in his eyes. But as he goes to respond- the man stutters with his words.

    RYBACK: Do I need to ask you again?

    The catering man finally finds his voice.

    MAN: Woah... I'm sorry man- I was just trying to get past. I di... I didn't mean to interrupt you. I'm sor-

    But Ryback doesn't let the catering man finish talking as he grabs the poor guy by the throat- and THROWS him into a set of steel chairs like a rag-doll! The fans can be heard booing loudly as Ryback simply laughs to himself, finding his own actions amusing before walking away from the scene.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The TitanTron shows that The New Day will be here on Raw next week as they celebrate being the longest reigning WWE Tag Team Champions! Ranallo hypes up how The New Day made history by becoming the achieving that record. The cameras cut back to the ring as we see a local talent competing for action... but from out of nowhere- the local talent is taken out from behind by none other than...

    HEATH SLATER!

    Slater kicks the local man out of the ring before grabbing a mic. The One Man Band begins to speak as Cole says that Slater shouldn't be out here due to not being drafted to either Raw or Smackdown.

    HEATH SLATER:
    Now listen up guys, don't fear because the One Man Band is here BABY!!

    Slater continues.

    HEATH SLATER:
    I ain't out here to cause any trouble- but there's a lot of frustrated superstars in the back who are unhappy about the number they were drafted at. Hell, my man Curtis Axel was drafted last and that sent him off the rails! But the difference between myself... and all those guys in the back is one thing...

    I wasn't even drafted to Raw OR Smackdown!!

    Light boos from the fans as some members of the audience seem to disagree with the decision to not draft Slater.

    HEATH SLATER: I'm not assigned to any brand which makes me the HOTTEST free agent in sports entertainment BABY! I've been in the WWE for 6 years, but it still makes me wonder... how no one ever thought to look at Heath Slater and think, wow, this man could be the greatest!

    I am a former 3 time Tag Team Champion, so where's MY contract? I'm DONE with playing around, and being treated like I'm some afterthought. It seems like nobody in the WWE is taking me seriously, but you want to know something? I'm cool with that, because it's about time we start a REVOLUTION!


    And I'm not leaving this arena until I get a contract... so I want everybody in the amazing town of Pittsburgh to shout along with me...

    SIGN HEATH SLATER!

    Surprisingly, the fans are actually behind Slater as they erupt in a 'SIGN HEATH SLATER' chant as Slater waits in the ring for an answer, and he looks to be sticking to his words...

    WELCOME TO THE QUEENDOM

    The music of Stephanie McMahon causes the fans to respond with a mixed reaction- as the seemingly changed Stephanie comes out with a mic in hand. But despite changing, it's safe to say that she doesn't look too happy as she stands on the stage.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON: Hold on a minute. Heath Slater, you do know that we are LIVE on Monday Night Raw right? You couldn't have just approached myself or Daniel Bryan in the back for a potential contract?

    Stephanie continues as the fans begin to boo.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON: Don't get me wrong, I am happy to give you a contract to be a Raw superstar- but I don't appreciate the way you have come out here, and interrupted a potential match just to stake your claim for a contract. As I said before, we are live on Raw- and you have just showed us all up.

    Stephanie doesn't look happy as fans continue to boo- but Slater isn't having it.

    HEATH SLATER: Hold on a second Stephanie... I thought you were meant to be a changed women? Like I said, I'm not out here to cause any trouble. I'm simply out here for a contract. I've seen a local women get a chance, the man that I just kicked out of the ring was being given a chance... and hell- even the SPIRIT SQUAD got an opportunity tonight.

    I'm the hottest free agent in sports entertainment today, and I've even got the hair to prove it! But in all seriousness, if I'm not gonna be given a contract- then at least give me the chance to EARN a contract because from the way I see things? EVERYBODY in this arena wants you to SIGN HEATH SLATER!


    The fans continue to chant 'SIGN HEATH SLATER' as Stephanie nods.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON: Well after what has just occurred, I'm most certainly not going to hand you a contract just like that... so Slater, if you want the chance to earn a contract...

    YOU'VE GOT IT!

    Cheers from the crowd.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON:
    I will give you a chance to compete right here, tonight- against the man that was scheduled to compete before you kicked his opponent out of the ring. And coincidentally, you will face somebody that you know very well. And the stipulation is simple, if you win this match? You earn a Monday Night Raw contract. But if you lose?

    It was nice knowing you Heath.

    Slater accepts the opportunity to compete for his contract as he looks ready to win whilst the fans cheer Slater on. Stephanie heads to the back as Slater waits for his opponent...

    SHOOT FOR THE STARS

    A shock look appear on the face of The One Man Band... and out comes BO DALLAS with a huge grin on his face as Slater can't believe it. Cole hypes up how if Slater wants to earn a contract, he's going to have to go through one of his friends from Social Outcasts! Bo makes his way to the ring as Slater looks on. Bo enters the ring, and Slater nods as he's accepting the stakes. Slater puts his hand out as he's set to go one on one with his friend- and Bo continues to grin, before shaking Slater's hand as we head to a commercial.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    Match 6: Bo Dallas vs. Heath Slater- If Slater wins, he earns a Raw contract

    Finish: This match was very high paced and full of action as both men took each other to their limits. The fans were fully behind Slater as they were rooting for him to win a Raw contract tonight. Back to the action, both men are bringing the fight to each other as they begin to trade vicious shots. Slater goes for another shot, but Bo ducks before spinning Slater around and nailing him with a Belly-To-Belly Suplex! Bo gets up on the top rope, and goes to leap but Slater moves out of the way as Bo crashes onto the canvas! Slater slowly picks himself back up, as Bo is as well, and he waits for Bo to get up... before nailing Bo with a Sweetness! Ranallo says that Slater has this in the bag, as Slater goes for the cover. 1... 2... but Bo's feet are on the ropes! The referee breaks the pinfall as he notices, and Slater can't believe it as he thought he had it! Slater looks into the camera with frustration on his face... but Bo rolls Slater up from out of nowhere! 1... 2... and Bo slyly puts his feet on the ropes as the referee is unable to see... 3!!

    Spoiler:

    WINNER: BO DALLAS


    Damn. The backlash in Pittsburgh tonight is absolutely unreal as the fans can't help but boo loudly for Bo not only getting the win, but having to put his feet up on the ropes. Bo slides out of the ring immediately, as he begins to do a victory lap around the ring with the fans getting annoyed.



    Meanwhile back in the ring, if you thought Slater was frustrated before... imagine how his face looks now. Slater can't believe what just occurred, as he's in absolute shock. Ranallo talks about how Bo just stole the win from his friend, meaning that Slater won't be earning a Monday Night Raw contract. Slater immediately gets up, and walks over to the referee as complains that Bo's foot was on the ropes- but the referee isn't having any of it as we head backstage.

    We see Sheamus in the back as he looks to be making his way to the curtain for the main event match, however he's interrupted by Mike Rome who approaches him.

    MIKE ROME: Hey Sheamus... can I get a moment?

    Sheamus groans as he turns to Rome.

    MIKE ROME:
    As I'm sure you know... you have a main event match for an opportunity to go onto Summerslam to face Dean Ambrose for the WWE Championship. What is your strategy heading into the match?

    Sheamus begins to chuckle.

    SHEAMUS: My strategy? Hahahaha. Are you bein' serious right now? If I tell you my strategy, it will mean that I'm tellin' the entire world- and I'm in this match to win it. I don't want my opponents to know what I'm goin' to bring to this match, 'cause they're goin' to find out tonight.

    It wasn't long ago that I was at the top again with the WWE Championship around my waist, but now that we're in a new era of Raw... it's goin' to be my time again. I'm goin' to prove exactly why I am the Celtic Warrior, and startin' from tonight? My path to the top begins again when I WIN the Fatal Four Way match to become #1 contender.

    Sheamus walks off with fire in his voice as we head to our final break of the night.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The cameras cut to the commentators, and Cole hypes up how on August 21st, we will see The Biggest Party of the Summer as Summerslam comes to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York! But up next, we have our main event of the evening! We will have another Fatal Four Way match as we look to see who is going to Summerslam to be the #1 contender to the WWE Championship!

    HELLFIRE

    The lights go out in the Consol Energy Center as the fans begin to boo loudly. A spotlight is shown on The Celtic Warrior as Sheamus poses on the stage with his back towards the ring. Sheamus turns around before making his way to the ring- paying no attention to the crowd's boo's. Ranallo says that Sheamus is a four time world champion and a two time US Champion, and he's a huge threat in this match for his opponents.

    SHOW THE WORLD

    The music of The Show-Off plays as Pittsburgh erupts with loud cheers. Dolph Ziggler comes out as the fans cheer him on, as he begins to get himself hyped up on the stage before walking down the ramp. Cole says that Ziggler is a former world champion, and he's another man who has accomplished many title wins. With the fans behind him, Ziggler looks to fight his way back into the main event picture.

    MEAT ON THE TABLE

    Boos are heard from the WWE Universe tonight for The Human Wrecking Ball as Ryback comes out to the stage. Ryback looks as determined as ever with a cold look in his eyes, as he's clearly ready for destruction. He makes his way to the ring as Graves says that Ryback is a former Intercontinental Champion. While he hasn't had many title wins, he's one of the strongest and destructive superstar in the WWE today.

    TRUTH REIGNS

    Pittsburgh explodes with a HUGE reaction for The Big Dog as Roman Reigns comes out. Cheers can be heard, but the boo's overpower the cheers by far. Roman soaks in the reaction as he simply doesn't give a damn, and he makes his way to the ring for the main event. Ranallo says that Reigns hasn't had the best couple of months recently, but he looks to change that tonight. Reigns joins his opponents in the ring- as all four men begin to exchange glares at each other. The referee rings for the bell as the match is on!

    Main Event: Dolph Ziggler vs. Roman Reigns vs. Ryback vs. Sheamus- Fatal 4 Way Match- Winner challenges Dean Ambrose for the WWE Championship at Summerslam

    Finish: This match has featured a lot of hard-hitting action and energy as we look to see who will go to Summerslam! All four men have got a huge amount of offense on each other as anybody could win. The camera cuts to Roman Reigns in the ring as he battles it out with Dolph Ziggler. Reigns goes for a Superman Punch to Ziggler but Ziggler sees it coming as The Show Off is able to move out of the way. Reigns hits the air as the two men turn back around, and Ziggler nails Reigns with a sharp Dropkick as Reigns hits the corner.

    Ziggler begins to hype himself up, as he lines Reigns for more offense. Ziggler charges towards Reigns as he jumps high in the air for a Stinger Splash as he nails it! Reigns stumbles to the centre of the ring as Ziggler goes for a Zig Zag, but Reigns uses his strength to prevent the move from happening, and Reigns counters... SAMOAN DROP TO ZIGGLER! Ziggler crashes onto the canvas. Reigns gets back up, and he grabs Ziggler by the head before draping him over the bottom rope. Reigns slides out of the ring as everybody knows what's coming, and Reigns launches at Ziggler with a huge kick...



    DRIVE-BY FROM REIGNS!! The fans react with a mixed reaction as Reigns is getting absolutely fired up tonight. Reigns turns around, but from out of nowhere... MEATHOOK CLOTHESLINE FROM RYBACK! Ryback knocks Reigns to the ground before entering the win as he looks to take advantage of Ziggler. He goes for the cover... but Ziggler kicks out at 2! Ryback doesn't waste any time, as he picks Ziggler up to his feet. He puts Ziggler on his shoulders before matching around the ring for a Shell Shocked- but Ziggler manages to cling onto the ropes as Ryback is unable to hit it.

    Ryback is forced to let go of Ziggler by the referee, as he gets in the way. Ryback steps back, as Ziggler walks towards The Big Guy... SUPERKICK TO RYBACK! The fans are going nuts for Ziggler as he hypes himself up to the fans, before going for the cover. 1... 2... BUT SHEAMUS BREAKS THE PIN!! The Celtic Warrior comes just in time as fans boo. Sheamus grabs hold of Ziggler as he lifts him high in the air...



    WHITE NOISE TO ZIGGLER!! The effect of the devious White Noise is heard around the arena, but Sheamus isn't finished yet as he's looking to hit Ziggler with a Brogue Kick. He begins to taunts the WWE Universe as the fans chant 'You Look Stupid!' loudly. However, as Sheamus distracts himself, he then turns back around to see Roman Reigns entering the ring. Reigns charges towards Sheamus but Sheamus knocks him down with a Clothesline! The Celtic Warrior walks over to the corner, before getting up on the top rope. Sheamus screams on the turnbuckle, before waiting for Reigns to get up as he does so. Sheamus leaps...



    And Reigns reverses into a THUNDEROUS Superman Punch to the face of Sheamus as The Celtic Warrior is knocked out! The fans react with another mixed reaction. Reigns begins to roar loudly as Ranallo hypes up how Reigns could be earning a ticket to Summerslam! Reigns lines Sheamus up for a Spear, as he motions for Sheamus to get up. Eventually, Sheamus does slowly get back up to his feet- and he makes the mistake of turning around...



    SPEAR TO SHEAMUS!! A devastating Spear from Reigns as the fans erupt for the huge collision. Reigns immediately goes for the cover... and THE BIG DOG IS GOING TO SUMMERSLAM!!


    Spoiler:

    WINNER: ROMAN REIGNS


    Ranallo states that Roman Reigns has earned his way to competing for the WWE Championship at Summerslam! The referee raises Reigns' hand high up in the air whilst the fans shower Reigns with cheers and boos. Reigns walks over to the corner before getting up on the turnbuckle, and raising his hands again. Reigns walks back to the centre of the ring...

    RETALIATION

    Pittsburgh EXPLODES for the music of the WWE Champion as Dean Ambrose comes out! Reigns turns his focus to the stage as The Lunatic makes his way to the ring. Ambrose joins Reigns in the ring, as the two men look at each other eye to eye. The fans cheer loudly due to both men's history together as both men bump fists. After this, Reigns stares coldly into Ambrose's eyes, but Ambrose doesn't look worried at all as the two men engage in a staredown.



    Ambrose then shows off his confidence by raising the WWE Championship in the air as he waves it around Roman's face, signalling that he's the man. Reigns nods at Ambrose as Ranallo says that two brothers will go one on one for the WWE Championship at Summerslam as the show closes!

    Pros: Aries, The Accesion, Axel Story, Bliss, Dean vs Reigns, Cesaro vs Miz and Summer Rae 1st lady

    Cons: Roman winning seem obvious with him facing 2 guys ( Ryback & Sheamus) pinning anyone.

    Yeah, Reigns winning might have been a bit obvious I'll have to admit mate- but I do believe it was the best option I had, and it fits in to what I've got planned.

    Glad that you enjoyed the show man! Appreciate the review.

    Thanks for your thoughts, OMB.

    Hope people enjoy the show. Update on the Blue brand- Smackdown's episode is done and I'll likely look to post over the weekend.

    SD Live Re: Deco & Shaz Present WWE: Smackdown vs. Raw!



    Episode Two (New Era) - 26/07/16 - Buffalo, New York.

    Narrator: Battleground. A Universe divided.


    Footage is shown from WWE Battleground. It showcases Raw and Smackdown superstars competing for victory for themselves and in the name of their respective brands. Sasha, Ambrose and Sami Zayn are shown first with a Red backdrop while their opponents- Charlotte, Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens are shown in a Blue backdrop.

    Narrator: Battleground. For some, it was personal.

    Footage is shown of the matches between The Bullet Club vs Cena, Enzo & Cass. It also shows the New Day vs the Wyatt Family.

    Narrator: Battleground. The return of a viper, to challenge a beast.

    Footage is shown of Randy Orton challenging Brock Lesnar to a match at SummerSlam. It then shows various highlights of Brock and Orton growing up in OVW till now, both future Hall of Famers. It finishes with a showcase of both men hitting their famous RKO's and F5's on former rivals and opponents.

    Narrator: Battleground. The smoke has cleared.. but who won the battle?

    Footage is shown of Vince Mcmahon from last week's Smackdown declaring that he wanted to see who would come out on top, Raw or Smackdown. It shows how he laid down the challenge to both his Daughter- Stephanie and to his Son- Shane about seeing a ratings battle, wanting a war. The footage then shows clips of the two Main Event matches at Battleground. Sasha Banks vs Charlotte for the Women's Championship and the WWE Championship match between Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. It finishes with a edited picture shot of Dean Ambrose on the left side of the picture- the backdrop is Red and he's holding the WWE Championship while on the right side- the backdrop is Blue and Charlotte is holding the WWE Women's Championship.

    Narrator: Battleground. The battle is over, the war for ratings has just begun!

    The footage then fades and the new intro begins for the new era episode of Smackdown Live! "Take a Chance" plays in the background as superstars like Seth Rollins, Charlotte, The Bullet Club, Dudley Boyz and many more are shown. The intro then stops and to a huge pop from the crowd.. SMACKDOWN IS LIVE!!




    The live footage circles around the arena displaying many of the crowd and their crowd signs in attendance before switching over to the commentary team of Jim Ross, Booker T and "JBL" as Jim Ross welcomes the WWE Universe to Smackdown Live! Jim Ross states that we are live from Buffalo, New York and we are just days removed from Battleground where we are about to enter a new era of the WWE! Jim Ross says that's enough from him right now as waiting in the ring- Smackdown Live Commissioner- Mr Shane Mcmahon!

    SHANE MCMAHON: What's up Buffalo?!

    Crowd pop for Shane as he smiles.

    SHANE MCMAHON: Hello everyone and welcome to the home of the blue brand- welcome to SMACKDOWN LIVE!

    Another crowd pop.

    SHANE MCMAHON: You know Buffalo, it's very fitting that for many, including me, New York has been the home of the WWE for many, many years. So many great memories, so many amazing moments. So it's very exciting to me that we launch Smackdown Live in the home of the WWE here in New York and I sure hope that tonight we are able to create some more memories, some more moments and we are going to put on a show for you, that's a promise!

    Crowd cheer with chants of "Shane-O-Mac" sounding.

    SHANE MCMAHON: I promise that to you, because I might be the Commissioner, I might have chosen Eric Bischoff as my General Manager but make no mistake- Smackdown Live belongs to each and every single one of you! You, the WWE Universe and I promise that each and every single week we are going to give you a show that you can enjoy. It starts.. TONIGHT!

    Smackdown will be about entertainment and opportunities which leads me on to my next point- nicely. I'm sure you all know that by now, following Dean Ambrose's successful title defense at BattleGround that currently Smackdown is without a male World Champion. However, that's about to change because with SummerSlam approaching it's going to be the last time for a while that Monday Night Raw and Smackdown Live host a WWE Ppv together and as the Smackdown Commissioner I want to make sure that come the end of the night- all the talk is about the blue brand.

    And that's why right now I am announcing at SummerSlam there will be a Main Event match where the man who shall be victorious will become the proud owner of the vacant and now reinstated World Heavyweight Championship!

    Crowd pop as they begin to "YES!" chant.

    SHANE MCMAHON: Now, Me and Eric spoke about this and we were wondering who was worthy of competing for such a prize? We wondered how many were worthy? The truth is.. We don't know and that's going to be the beauty of life on Smackdown because we are going to give the opportunity to everyone! So I've already briefed my roster on what's expected of them- but right now I'm going to make it clear to everyone, unlike before, you will all get the chance to shine. So.. Impress, get people talking- make them excited. Get creative. Me and Eric will be watching and those that impress will be announced down the road and will compete at SummerSlam for the chance to become.. WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! BUFFALO, enjoy the show and thank you for your continued support- we will not let you down.

    Shane then exits the ring, pumping his fist against his chest before mouthing "thank you!" to the crowd who continue to chant and cheer his name. The live footage then immediately goes backstage to the gorilla position where Eric Bischoff stands in front Apollo Crews and Neville.

    ERIC BISCHOFF: Neville, Apollo, you two are amazing and talented athletes. Me and Shane have brought you both to Smackdown because we feel you have everything needed to make it big in the WWE. You heard Shane out there.. Smackdown is the land of opportunity and neither of you got a fair crack at the whip on Raw. That's about to change because you're both going to start the show right and usher us in to a new era. Go out to that ring and put on an amazing match for this crowd. This is your chance! We will both be watching, good luck.

    The camera then focuses on both Neville and Apollo who are both equally pumped up, excited and determined by the words of "Easy-E" Eric Bischoff. Neville and Apollo Crews both then turn to each other- shake each others hand before exiting behind the curtain where the first match of the evening is about to begin!

    Match One: Neville vs Apollo Crews.
    Finish: The match right from the get-go was a good one. Both Neville and Apollo competed like it was their last ever match- both determined to shine and prove any doubters wrong. It would begin with a contest of strength before both men would grapple to the mat and would begin to trade holds and various locks. It would then come to life in the middle with Apollo and Neville displaying their abilities, flying through the air with drop kicks and cross bodys inside and outside of the ring. Neville and Apollo would also show their strength, exchanging suplex's and slams to each other, almost trying to one up each other every time.

    The match clock ticked around the Seven minute mark and neither were slowing down. The crowd completely split and often cheering for both. Neville would unleash a couple of kicks, knocking Crews back to the turnbuckle before running at him and attempting a monkey flip. Apollo would sore in the air but would show his ability by landing on his feet and quickly spinning around to intercept another strike from Neville. Apollo would land a side kick before grabbing Neville around the waist and attempting to belly-to-belly suplex him over his head. Neville would return the favor- instead landing on his feet and then leaping up and catching an incoming Apollo Crews with a Enzuigiri knocking Apollo down. Neville with the crowd cheering would then point to the top turnbuckle and would pose in position for the Red Arrow. Just as he leaped in the air- Apollo would move slightly, rolling closer to the turnbuckle and out of danger. Neville would maneuver mid-air and adjust to land on his feet but when he turned around- Apollo Crews was ready and would level the Englishman with a lariat clothesline, turning Neville inside out. Apollo would then drag up Neville, picking him up and..



    ..APOLLO COMBINATION! Shouts Booker T as Apollo Crews crushes Neville with his big frame from the Gorilla press and moonsault. Apollo then hooks the leg and covers Neville- One! Two! Three! Jim Ross instantly puts over both men for the amazing match.

    Spoiler:

    WINNER - APOLLO CREWS.


    The Referee raises the hand of Apollo Crews who looks delighted by the victory. Neville though holds his midsection- attempting to stand as Apollo goes over and helps him up. Apollo offers his hand as Neville just looks at him- before looking out at the crowd who are cheering. Neville then shakes the hand of Apollo as both men share the moment in the ring as the live footage cuts to a commercial break.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    During the commercial break a small SummerSlam promo is aired where the announcement from Shane Mcmahon about the returning and reinstated World Heavyweight Championship is shown. The narrator then ask's who will follow in the footsteps of legends as clips of various past winners are shown- Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Triple H, Edge, The Undertaker, John Cena and many more.



    SummerSlam - Brooklyn, New York - Sunday, August 21.

    The commercial then finishes and we are live at ringside once more. The focus returns to the commentary table where Jim Ross welcomes the WWE Universe to Smackdown live from Buffalo, New York! Booker T then speaks and says that Smackdown started hot with that huge announcement from Shane Mcmahon regarding the returning World Heavyweight Championship! Booker says that he's a former winner and knows very well what it means to carry that championship that's been graced by the likes of Ric Flair and many others. "JBL" then says how about our opening contest between Neville and Apollo Crews? "JBL" will say that he admits- he doubted both men before but they put on a excellent match and it could be enough to impress Shane and Mr Bischoff to get into that Main Event at SummerSlam!

    "JBL" will then say that's not the only thing that was impressive before putting over Charlotte Flair's victory at BattleGround. "JBL" says that tonight we welcome back our queen and we celebrate in style as there will be a hero's welcome, a coronation fit for a queen as we will hear live from Charlotte Flair, tonight! Jim Ross speaks and says that Charlotte is an amazing women, gifted athlete and she had an amazing match with the talented Sasha Banks to end their rivalry, but he's not sure that a Queen's Coronation is really needed? "JR" then says that up next the spotlight is on the Tag Team Division as the Dudley Boyz take on the Vaudvillians!

    Match Two: The VaudeVillians vs The Dudley Boyz.
    Finish: Despite the best efforts of both Aiden English and Simon Gotch who would have a two minute spell in control of the match- the experience of both Dvon and Bubba Ray would show as the Dudley Boyz would control the match throughout. They would pump up the crowd with there hard hitting style and at one point would mock the VaudeVillians by using there own pose against them, taunting with the crowd. With the match clock ticking around the five minute mark- Simon Gotch would find him himself in a world of trouble as Bubba would land the Bubba Bomb which would be followed up by a flying Dvon landing with the "Whassup?" as Gotch would roll in pain and out of the ring. Aiden English would then storm the ring looking to avenge his partner but both Dvon and Bubba would duck the same double clothesline attempt. Aiden would then spring against the ropes and when he came back would fall right into the... 3D! 3D! DUDLEY DEATH DROP! Shouted Jim Ross as the legal man Bubba Ray would then cover Aiden English for the three count. One! Two! Three!


    Spoiler:

    WINNERS - THE DUDLEY BOYZ.


    The crowd would cheer as Dvon and Bubba would have their hands raised in victory. The Dudley Boyz would then ask and receive microphone's from announcer JoJo on the outside before speaking to the Buffalo crowd.

    BUBBA RAY DUDLEY: For those of you who still might know who are we, who might be living under a rock, don't got the netowrk, don't got the twitter machine.. WE ARE THE DUDLEY BOYZ! The most decorated Tag Team in the WWE and the world today! For those of you who do know who we are... And Buffalo, I think you know, we are the bar that every other team is trying to reach in wrestling! Including these two schmucks, Aiden English and Simon Gotch and including every single tag team back there! Me and my Brother, Dvon, we came back for one single reason.. We came back home to reclaim the Tag Team Championships! Now, while that might not be possible right now, me and Dvon, well, we've had to rethink our strategy and find another goal and we have one! Tell them Dvon!

    DVON DUDLEY: Oh my Brother, it's true! You see me and Bubba were away for many, many years but we always had our eyes set on what was going on here and to be brutally honest- tag team wrestling has fallen. BUT.. there was one team that caught our attention, one team that claimed to be the best wrestlers in tag team wrestling today and those were not mirror images.. OH KNOW, they go by the name... REVIVAL.

    Crowd pop for the name drop of Revival.

    BUBBA RAY DUDLEY: REVIVAL! Listen up! You claim to be the best around today? Well i think you need to prove it boys because we are the measuring stick around here. There's a reason why we were the first tag team drafted by Shane and Bischoff to Smackdown Live! And when the time comes, we will be the first ever Smackdown Live Tag Team Champions of the new era! However right now, we are happy firing the first shot and laying down a marker that Smackdown Live is DudleyVille and if you're to survive and hang? Well.. Bullet Club, Enzo and Cass, REVIVAL.. You've got to go to war with DEM' DAMN DUDLEYS! Right Dvon?!

    DVON DUDLEY: REVIVAL, WE'LL BE WAITING! OHHH MY BROTHER, TESSSTTIIIFFYYYYYY!

    The Dudley Boyz then throw down their microphone's as the Buffalo crowd cheer and the commentary speculate on how the Revival and the other tag teams will respond. Booker says that the Dudley Boyz have thrown down the first marker and it will be interesting to see if anyone steps up and challenges them. The camera then heads backstage.

    The footage showcases the exit door straight to the parking lot and it's not long before it whips open and in steps the Viper, Randy Orton. The crowd respond with cheers as Orton steps through the door frame, stops, takes a breath and mouth's "home" before walking through with his bag in hand. Randy begins to make his way down the hallway, passing various workers and nodding to those he knows before he stops, drops his bag and begins to smile as Shane Mcmahon enters the picture.

    Both Randy and Shane shake hands as Mcmahon welcomes him to Smackdown Live and says how it's great to see him back from injury and that he's delighted to have him on Tuesday nights. Orton thanks Shane for the welcome before he says he should have been Shane's first choice pick but he will let it slide. Shane laughs in response before throwing up his hands and suggesting that he's happy to have the Viper on his show. Shane though then turns serious and mentions Orton's return at Battleground and if he truly meant what he said? That he really wants to face the Beast? Shane ask's if after Nine months away from in-ring action if he's ready to face Brock Lesnar?!

    Orton smiles before getting serious. He says ever since his return and words at Battleground, people have been thinking that he's gone crazy. He says how Brock's name has become a legend in the WWE, he's feared by everyone but not too long ago- Randy Orton was known as the legend killer! Orton smiles and says that he's not stupid, he knows that he's going on a long, tough, bumpy ride to Suplex City but when he does arrive, it's only going to take One RKO to send the Beast to ViperVille! Shane smiles and nods at Orton's words, believing in his man. He finishes by saying that he will speak with his Sister- Stephanie and make the match happen. Randy nods his head and says good. He then says that Shane is right about one thing though- He's been out of action for Nine months and that needs to change. Orton ask's Shane for a match.. Tonight. Shane says that he has the perfect test for Orton and he will face Alberto Del Rio in tonight's Main Event! The camera then zooms into the face of Orton, hunger in his eyes and we go to a commercial break.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The camera returns back from the break and to ringside where the crowd pop with a huge mixed reaction for the sound of "SHOT'EM!" It's the BULLET CLUB!



    Jim Ross puts over the Club for their achievements in Japan and around the world. He also puts over their victory against the one night only reunited Shield last week on the Draft edition of Smackdown Live. The Bullet Club make their way down the ramp, ignoring the crowd like the plague before entering the ring where AJ has a microphone in hand and is ready to speak his mind.

    AJ STYLES: Bullet Club, Arising! It's a takeover, Buffalo. The Bullet Club are running the wrestling world and there ain't nobody that can do a damn thing about it! Last week on Smackdown, me and my good brothers, Machine Gun- Karl Anderson and the big man, Luke Gallows exposed the WWE Universe to the real Bullet Club when we laid waste to the Shield and buried them in wrestling history! The club are on top and since there's no John Cena around here anymore because he got drafted to Raw.. I guess that truly does make me the undisputed face that runs the place!

    AJ smiles as the crowd are booing.

    AJ STYLES: You know what though?! It's not been all good news for me and my Brothers. You see after our major victory on Smackdown last week in a tough and grueling match we had to then go to Battleground and face John Cena, Enzo Amore and Big Cass.

    Crowd cheer for the name drops of Enzo, Cass and Cena.

    AJ STYLES: At Battleground, luck was on the side of that has-been Cena, the dancing clown- Enzo and vanilla Cass as they managed to escape with victory. You know what though?! That match didn't prove a damn thing because lightening only strikes once and luck eventually runs out. Class and ability is permanent and one thing is for sure- I am Ten times better then John Cena ever has been- ever will be! I'm going to prove that at SummerSlam! Johnny- I seen you running your mouth on Raw and you know what- You're more stupid then I thought, you really think you can beat me?! Beating up John Cena, that's what I do! I'll do it again, again and again, twice on Sunday's! You want to face me, one more time?! You're on Cena! I accept your match at SummerSlam and make no mistake, this time, there will be no room for excuses and you will learn to realize that I am that much better and that the Bullet Club are just... Two!... SWWEEETTTTTTTT!

    SAWFT IS A SIN!!

    The crowd pop as the theme of the realest guys in the room sounds from the speakers. Enzo & Cass come out from behind the curtain as Booker T thanks them, suggesting he couldn't listen to anymore from AJ Styles. "JBL" says that AJ vs John Cena II has been accepted and it will take place at the hottest party of the Summer- SummerSlam and it's going to be awesome!



    ENZO AMORE: BUFFALO, Now I don't kno' about yous' but I'm done listening to this Soccer Mum and her two boys trying to convince the WWE Universe with their lies! AJ and the SAWFT brothers, you don't run Smackdown Live, these people do! So you kno' wa', you can continue to talk the talk- but until you walk the walk, it ain't going to matter because the only thing me and my boy Big Cass see ya'll doing is throwing up hand signs and losing matches! HOW YA' DOIN?!

    Crowd cheer as the Club are furious.

    ENZO AMORE: As for SummerSlam, AJ. Our boy- John Cena gon' handle his business and he gon' adjust your attitude when he rams his knuckles, right down ya' throat and send's ya' back packing back to Japan! SummerSlam is a couple of weeks away doe', so, we got some time to kill. Me and Cass just got speaking wit' Shane O' Mac and after hearing what the Dudley Boyz had to say earlier, well, we want to lay down the second marker in the Tag Team Division because we are challenging those two giant egg heads behind you to a match right now! So boys, it's go time! Tell them Cass.

    BIG CASS: That's right 'ZO, Gallows, Anderson, get out from hiding under Ya' mothers skirt because we are about to find out if lightening can strike twice because you bald brothers don't look tough to me.. In fact, there's only one word to describe you and I'M GOING TO SPELL IT OUT FOR YOU!! S! A! W! F! T! SSAAWWWFFTTTTT!

    The crowd pop at the words of Enzo & Cass as the Club are furious. A Referee official runs down the ramp and the match is on.

    Match Three: Enzo & Big Cass vs The Bullet Club (Anderson & Gallows) W/ AJ Styles.
    Finish: Solid tag team action followed as the ring bell sounded. The crowd in favor of Cass and Enzo as they battled with Anderson and Gallows. AJ would be ringside however he would wind up at the commentary table. Hyping up his match with John Cena and how he's going to prove that he's the better man at SummerSlam. He would also put over the Bullet Club and promises the WWE Universe they ain't seen nothing and that he meant what he said earlier when he promised a takeover on Smackdown Live. In the ring the momentum would switch back and forth as both teams would put on a good show with hard hitting action.

    Enzo Amore and Karl Anderson were the legal men and Enzo would hit Anderson with a couple of quick jabs, each one rocking Machine Gun, Anderson. Enzo would then entertain the crowd with a little shake, rattle and roll in honor of the Road Dogg before running the ropes and nailing Anderson with a forearm smash. Enzo would then grab up Anderson and would look to hit a bull dog in the middle of the ring. Karl would end up countering Amore, lifting him up at the bull dog attempt before bringing him back down with a back body drop to the canvas. Both men would scratch and claw to their corners where some foul play would come into action. Gallows would run around the ring and just when Amore would leap up for the hot tag- Luke would swipe away the legs of Cass causing him to fall down awkwardly to the outside. Amore would then watch on and realize he's on his own as Anderson would then tag the back in position- Luke Gallows.

    Gallows would enter to huge boo's like a truck- beating down Amore with kicks and punches. Gallows would then swing him into the corner and would follow up with a big splash before hitting the "2-sweet" sign in the middle of the ring. Gallows would drag back up Amore and place him in the corner- this time picking his spots and shots with punches high and low. Gallows would then look for another splash but Amore would get the boots up- catching Gallows in the face. Amore would then leap across the ring and tag in the big man- Cass! Cass like a steam train would enter, big boot to Gallows, big boot to Anderson as he would enter the ring. Cass would then hit both with a double clothesline before picking up Anderson and leveling him with the East River Crossing! Cass would taunt with the crowd and would spring off the ropes looking to hit Gallows with another big boot but AJ would vacate the commentary table and out of the Referee's view would pull down the top rope causing Cass to have a hard landing for the second time to the outside. Gallows would then slam Amore with a Chokeslam before launching him over the top rope. Anderson would then join AJ and both would put boots to Big Cass on the outside as Luke Gallows argued and distracted the Referee to the fury of Booker T and Jim Ross at the commentary table.

    After what seemed ages, Anderson would role Cass back in the ring and together both Gallows and Anderson would finish the job with a "2-Sweet" pose and follow it up with the Boot of Doom! They were not done there though and Gallows would pick up Cass on his shoulders and Karl would strike with the..



    ...MAGIC KILLER! It's all over, good night Cass shouted "JBL" as AJ would clap his brothers from the outside of the ring. Gallows would then drop down and cover Cass for the victory. One! Two! Three!
    Spoiler:



    WINNERS: THE BULLET CLUB.



    With the crowd booing- The Bullet Club were not done and soon AJ would enter the ring and all three members would kick and beat down Cass. Anderson and Gallows would drag him up and hold him in position as Styles would fly through the air and nail him with the Phenomenal Forearm! Enzo would crawl back in the ring to help but it would prove a bad move as the Three members would then beat on him. AJ would drag him up and then execute his Styles Clash right in front of the camera before taunting Cena directly with the "You can't see me!" pose as the Bullet Club members stood over their opponents to end the segment as the footage went backstage.

    The camera goes backstage to the Women's locker room where the Irish Lass-Kicker- Becky Lynch can be seen stretching and warming up for her match against Tamina Snuka tonight. The camera then zoom's out a little and Becky's facial expression changes as she looks up and enters a fighting stance. Natalya enters the picture shot as her arms raised as she mentions she didn't come here to fight- in fact she came here to apologize! Becky roll's her eyes and ask's Nattie what she really wants? Natayla says that she is genuinely sorry and the truth is- she's not been herself lately because she's been jealous of people like Becky, Charlotte, Sasha and the whole Women's Revolution! Nattie says she's been stuck on the sidelines and it hurts to watch something you would love nothing more then to be involved in and part of- but instead you can only sit and watch. All she wanted was to get in the ring and have a great match with people like you, Becky. Nattie says with sincerity in her voice as Becky seems to come around to the idea that she's being honest. Becky agree's that it was a good match before Natalya speaks on- You pushed me to my limits at Battleground and it was a great match and all I want to do is get back to the real me- not this jealous, angry, version of me. To the real me who loves this business and just wants to compete. So Becky, I'm sorry and I hope you can forgive me? Says Nattie as she holds out her hand in apology. Becky takes a moment before nodding her head and shaking Nattie's hand before she leaves for her match against Tamina as Nattie wishes her good luck.

    The live footage returns to ringside where JoJo is in the ring and announces the next match as Becky Lynch vs Tamina Snuka! "JR" hypes the match and says that many seem to believe that Smackdown clearly won the battle of the Women's Division with their selected picks and he would have to agree! "JBL" chimes in and says that it's a shame that Becky Lynch was selected- she's so weak accepting that apology from Natalya! Booker defends Becky and says it's about respect! He says it was earned from both for each other at Battleground but Lynch has a tough match against the Second generation superstar- Tamina Snuka!

    Match Four: Becky Lynch vs Tamina Snuka.
    Finish: Both ladies put on a good match. Tamina started it in powerful fashion as she would dominate the match with her strength advantage. Trapping Becky in the corner and delivering shoulder charges before flying in the air with a Samoan stinger like splash and then delivering the Samoan Drop in the middle of the ring. This would result in a close two count but Becky would come fighting back around the Four minute mark of the match time with strong forearm strikes. Becky would then shout "Straight Fiireeeee!" before landing a big forearm smash of the second rope- taking down Snuka. Becky would then drag up Tamina and would look for the Exploder Suplex but Tamina would rake Becky's eyes before picking her up in another Samoan Drop position but before she could drop down- Becky would reverse with a Crucifix pin attempt before rolling out and trapping Tamina in the middle of the ring with the DIS-ARM-HER! Tamina would try to struggle free but would have no choice but to submit and tap out.


    Spoiler:

    WINNER: BECKY LYNCH.


    The crowd are cheering as Becky Lynch stands in the middle of the ring with her arm raised in victory. The live footage then fades into another commercial break.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    As we return live from the break, the focus is on the big stage as Titantron begins to air a pre-taped vignette. Smoke fills the picture in a dark room. A small swinging light bulb illuminates the eater of worlds, Bray Wyatt. Behind him a mountain of a man wearing a Black sheep mask cast's a large shadow. Bray paces back and forward before laughing- reaching up and grabbing the light to stop it swinging and begins to speak.

    BRAY WYATT: Battleground. Me and my family proved just how strong and united we are, man. We defeated the New Day, turning their day, into a nightmare. Their positive approach, their clapping, their dancing, it was all a sham to hide their fear of a god, Bray Wyatt. Well, New Day, you was right to be scared because there's nothing positive about me and my family, man. Only Destruction.

    You know, people are talking about us now. They're whispering how we are a family divided and it's a matter of time before we fall. *Bray laughs* Oh my friends, you couldn't be more wrong. A family divided we might be but can you really be divided if you all share the same goal? Hmmm? I mean think about it.. Are we divided, or have Erick Rowan and Luke Harper been set free to roam and destroy Monday Night Raw while me and my Black sheep do the same to Smackdown Live!

    I wanted you all to witness and heed my warning, my promise to you, the WWE Universe. The end is coming for the Universe as you know it and soon we will enter into a new age- The age of Bray Wyatt! My warning to you all has been fair and soon I will return to reclaim what will be mine and no one will be safe! My device of destruction, my Black sheep, Braun Strowman will make a victim out of anyone and everyone who opposes the eater of worlds, your god, Bray Wyatt. We will harvest the souls of those who choose not to kneel down and bow, we will step and crush the bones of those who choose to stand in the way and fight... WWE Universe, you have had your warning.. You have the choice, man. Will you join me- Will you follow the buzzards? Or.. Will.. You...



    RUUNNNN!

    That is one scary, deranged and deluded man says Jim Ross as the vignette finishes and the live footage swings over to the commentary table. "JBL" says that people need to take this warning seriously because there is no telling what Bray Wyatt and that monster- Strowman are capable off. Booker agree's but says that Bray needs help because he can't honestly believe he's a god, can he? "JR" then thanks the fans at home for tuning in tonight and hope's they're enjoying the show. He talks about the tag team action and says the Dudley Boyz and the Bullet Club have laid down markers in the division with their victory's tonight. "Bradshaw" then talks up that still to come we have the Queen's Coronation as we honor the Nature girl- Charlotte Flair! Jim Ross also talks about the Main Event tonight and how's it's the return of Orton- he takes on Alberto Del Rio! Booker however chimes in and says that he can't wait for that one- however up next, it's time for some one on one action as it will be Kevin Owens vs Zack Ryder!

    FIGHT!

    The unmistakable theme of Kevin Owens played from the speakers as him and his best friend- Chris Jericho made their way down to ringside. The crowd would boo as Owens and Jericho would ignore the attempted interactions and gestures before entering the ring and speaking their mind.

    KEVIN OWENS: SHUT UP BUFFALO, I'M READY TO SPEAK!

    Crowd heavily boo.

    KEVIN OWENS: I guess it's true, New Yorkers really do have zero manners! Well I'm not going to wait for you to shut up, so you're all going to have to deal with what I've got to say and I'm talking about Battleground! People have been quick to tease me, to take jibes at me, to laugh at me because of my loss to Sami Zayn! Well guess what genius, I didn't lose! I actually won, I am the winner and that's because for the first time in a long.. long.. loonnggg time.. I am free of that annoying flea, Sami Zayn! Good riddance old friend, I wish you nothing but bad luck on Raw!

    I am finally free of that STUPID IDIOT! That's for you, Chris. I am free of that idiot and I can actually get on with my life! No more friendship story, no more Zayn redemption, no more why Kevin why? It's done! I'm on Smackdown, he's on Raw. I am finally free of Sami Zayn! Finally, I can concentrate on myself and my friendship with my best friend, my best friend who's better then Sami Zayn in every way, Chris Jericho!

    Next! Shane Mcmahon started tonight's show by talking about opportunities and it should be clear to everyone that knows anything about wrestling- that those opportunities for the vacant World Heavyweight Championship should start and end with him- Kevin Owens! AND.. my best friend- Chris Jericho!

    Crowd continue booing as Owen's hands the microphone to Chris Jericho.

    CHRIS JERICHO: Kevin! I couldn't agree more, that's why I like you, that's why we are best friends because we know what's best for everyone! You know, it would take a real mutton head to overlook the GOAT and his best friend, Kevin Owens! If Smackdown Live is serious about beating Monday night Raw then Shane Mcmahon and Eric Bischoff need to get with the program and the sooner Smackdown becomes Smackdown is Jericho and the Kevin Owens show- the better it will be for everyone, baby!

    Jericho then passes the microphone back as the crowd continue their boo's.

    KEVIN OWENS: Chris, I couldn't agree more! Sadly, Shane, you've already made your first big mistake because we are not midcard, match filler guys, no! We should have gone on last because Y2KO are the MAIN EVENT! Do you understand what I'm telling you right now?! Do the right thing, Shane.

    Owen's then drops the microphone as the sound of Ryder's theme plays and the next match is about to begin.

    Match Five: Zack Ryder vs Kevin Owens W/ Jericho.
    Finish: Ryder came down to a nice cheer from the crowd off the back of his match at Battleground against the Bulgarian Brute- Rusev. The crowd behind him after almost winning the United States Championship. Ryder would start the match well- catching Owen's by surprise and almost scoring a Three count with a roll up that Owens would only narrowly escape from. This would lead to "KO" rolling out of the ring and discussing a plan with Jericho would play a massive part in the match going forward. The match clock would tick around the Four minute mark and Ryder would have "KO" in the corner and would look for the Broski Boot! Woo! Woo! Woo! Ryder would hit the taunt and get ready to charge when Jericho would grab his boot. Ryder would then turn to confront Jericho only for Owen's to forearm smash Ryder down to the canvas before picking him back up- throwing him into the ropes and then... POP-UP POWER BOMB! Owen's would then cover- One! Two! Three!

    Spoiler:

    WINNER: KEVIN OWENS.


    The crowd would heavily boo as Owen's and Jericho would celebrate. Ryder back in the ring looked absolutely gutted as he kicked the turnbuckle in frustration and pleaded with the Referee. The final shot of Ryder holding his head in his hands would be shown before the commercial break.

    >> COMMERCIAL >>

    The camera returns from the break and we are backstage where a depressed looking Zack Ryder is shown making his way out of Gorilla position and to the back- knocking over a chair and throwing a water bottle across the hall as he vents his frustrating and begins to rub his face in frustration. Ryder would soon be joined by Shane Mcmahon who would jump in and ask Ryder what's wrong? Ryder would say that he's blown it.. AGAIN! He says how first he tapped out to Rusev at Battleground, losing the chance to become United States Champion and now he's blown another chance by losing on the first episode of the new Smackdown Live era! Ryder says how it's time that he faces the facts and that he realizes he's nothing more then a joke! Ryder will say to Shane that he does not deserve to be here and attempts to walk away.

    Shane though grabs him by the arm and says wait a minute, hold up. Shane says that he couldn't disagree with Ryder more and that while he might have lost twice, he had two great matches and came so, so, close. Shane says that Ryder is loved by the fans and ultimately, it's their show.

    Crowd cheer as Ryder smiles, deep in thoughts with the words of Shane. Shane continues on and says that Ryder might have blown his last chance if this was Raw- but it's not- it's Smackdown Live! The land of opportunity and Ryder once again impressed both him and GM- Bischoff tonight. Shane says that had it not been for Jericho- Ryder might have even won the match. Shane finishes by saying he's going to give him another chance and next week he will take on Y2J- Chris Jericho! Ryder nods his head and smiles before shaking Shane's hand and walking off as the live footage cuts back to ringside.

    Main Event: Randy Orton vs Alberto Del Rio.
    Finish: Del Rio received strong boo's as he came down to the ring while the WWE Universe popped for the return of Randy Orton in action after Nine months out of the ring. Del Rio though would start fast- attacking Orton as he posed on the turnbuckle with a forearm to the back and then would lay boot's into the Viper as the referee tried to gain control of the match. Del Rio would stay on top of the match for the majority, the advantage of having that competitive edge and ring fitness as Orton was returning. Del Rio would also target the injury, using the turnbuckle and ring apron on the outside to cause maximum damage.

    The crowd would rally and would attempt to get behind Orton but every time Randy would fight back- Del Rio would block an attempt and then target a different limb of Orton- breaking him down. Del Rio was firmly on top and the end looked near as he began beating his chest and shouting.. "SI!" "SI!" "SI!" over and over. Orton was on his knee's and Del Rio would look for a super kick to the chin but Orton would sliver to the side and then OUTTA' NOWHERE...



    ..RKO! RKO! RKO, OUTTA NOWHERE! Shouts Jim Ross as the crowd pop. Orton then smiles as he kneel's in the ring and gestures that it only takes one move to the camera. Orton then covers.. One! Two! Three!

    Spoiler:

    WINNER: RANDY ORTON


    The crowd are cheering as Randy Orton has his hand raised in victory. Orton is hurting though- knowing that this match was a test but with a smile across his face that his finisher is enough to put down anyone- including a beast and Orton grabs a microphone from JoJo at ringside and begins to speak.

    RANDY ORTON: BROCK! HEYMAN! I hope you're both watching! That's all it takes, Brock. I'm not stupid.. I know I am going to Suplex City and I'm going to be beat up, I'm going to be thrown around.. Hell.. I might never be the same again! But.. I also know that when it's all said and done.. I'll be coiled, I'll be ready to strike and when I do.. It's all over. One move! One RKO and it's all done! Brock, you're going to ViperVille, Bitch!

    Orton throws the microphone as the crowd pop again for the strong words. The commentary trio at ringside hype up the match and put over the words of Orton that he's right- one RKO could slay the Beast- Brock Lesnar. As Orton then takes a moment to interact and have fun with the crowd at ringside, the camera shot flashes across to the Titantron where a vignette is about to be aired.

    The arena goes dark and you can hear a heart beat- pulsating, getting louder and louder before a large gasp of breath is confronted by the sound of a demonic voice mumbling. A voice over then begins to speak.

    "A boy named Fergal.."

    Footage is shown of Finn's early days in wrestling, various clips wrestling for the likes of NWA Hammerlock and other British and Irish promotions.

    "To a man who would be Prince.."

    Footage is shown of Finn by the moniker of Prince Devitt in NJPW. His time leading the Bullet club highlighted.

    "An NXT Champion, dubbed the future"

    Clips of Finn's time in NXT is shown, finishing with him becoming the NXT Champion and his rivalries with the likes of Kevin Owen's and Samoa Joe.

    "..The future has arrived, we welcome the Demon King"



    Next Week. Finn Balor.. Arrives!

    The vignette then stops and the crowd cheer with excitement. "JBL" says how Finn Balor is indeed the future of this company, this business and it's going to be awesome seeing him on Smackdown! Jim Ross agree's and says that if the WWE Universe have not seen much of this man- they're in for a massive surprise because he has immense talent and ability. Booker T says the best part- we don't have long to wait because he arrives next week and it's going to be big! "JBL" then chimes in and says what's better then Finn Balor's arrival? He says the Queen's coronation and the time has come- the ring and stage is set- let's welcome our Queen! The Nature Girl- the WWE Women's Champion! Charlotte Flair!

    The live camera then swings around the arena and the ring is indeed set. Red carpet covers the canvas and a throne sits in the middle with a table covered in cloth next too it. JoJo then enters the ring and advises the crowd that Charlotte has asked the WWE Universe to rise and show their appreciation for their queen! Jojo then announces the arrival of the WWE Women's Champion! Charlotte Flair!

    RECOGNITION!!

    The crowd boo heavily with only a couple of cheers as Dana Brooke leads the applause as Charlotte steps out with the Championship around her waist, wearing a bright, large and clearly expensive robe. Notably she is also wearing a glistening and diamond encrusted crown as she makes her way down the ramp, waving to the fans like royalty as Dana holds up the back of her robe to not drag across the floor. Charlotte then enters the ring and twirls for the crowd who continue to boo. Ignorance is bliss for the Champion though as she continues to wave and smile like she's being adored. Dana then wipes the seat down and helps Charlotte take her place in the middle of the ring- sat on her throne to more boo's from the fans. Dana then goes even further with her duties, pulling out a fan from her dress pocket and fanning down Charlotte as she smiles. After a little while, Dana stops, grabs a microphone and gives it to Charlotte to speak.

    CHARLOTTE: BUFFALO! WWE UNIVERSE! MY PEOPLE, MY FANS! YOUR QUEEN HAS ARRIVED!

    Crowd boo heavily again as Charlotte closes her eyes and smiles while Dana claps like an excited child. Charlotte then reaches back and unties the strap of her Women's Championship and holds it up. She then gives it to Dana Brooke and to the surprise of everyone- Dana throws it out of the ring before she smiles.

    CHARLOTTE: THAT'S RIGHT... EAT YOUR HEART OUT, MADUSA. ONLY I CAN DO IT WITH FLAIR, HONEY.

    The crowd watch on as Dana then pulls away the cloth of the table and reveals a newly designed Smackdown Women's Championship with custom designed side plates. Dana then takes the belt and straps it across the waist of Charlotte who again closes her eyes and leans back- taking in the crowd negativity and not allowing it to get to her- clearly enjoying the moment and spot light.

    CHARLOTTE: Why are you all still sat down right now? Are you actually kidding me? Don't you know I am Smackdown Live! I am the number one Draft pick! I am the elite premier athlete in the world today and their is no one that can stand alongside me because I am in a league of my own! So get up! YOU!, YEAH, YOU- GET UP! YOU AND YOU, GET UP! YOU SHOULD ALL BE ON YOUR FEET, CHEERING ME, WORSHIPING ME AND BEGGING ME NEVER TO LEAVE! You want to know why, Buffalo?! Because I beat your precious Sasha Banks and have proved once and for all- that she might be a boss- but she does not have what it takes to be a Queen that can do it with Flair! You should all be on your feet because the truth is.. You all OWE ME! You should all be bowing down and kissing my feet because without me- SMACKDOWN WOULDN'T EVEN HAVE A WORLD CHAMPION!

    Crowd continue booing as chants of "you suck!" sound from the Buffalo crowd.

    CHARLOTTE: OKAY! FINE- HAVE IT YOUR WAY! BOO me! Go on- BOO me! It's motivation to me and the truth is.. you're not my people, you're all below me, dirt on a Queen's glass slipper and I don't need any of you! Never have, never will and WWE Universe, you might not like it- but you're going to learn to love it! Woohooo! because I am just getting started- Woohoooo! There is no competition to my greatness! Not on Smackdown and certainly not on Raw! I have beat anyone and everyone! My reign as Queen and Smackdown's Women's Champion will go on and on, It will go on forever and you want to know why?! Because I am the NATURE GIRL and I''ll stand the test of time!

    NEW FOUNDATION!!

    The crowd have heard enough and they give a nice cheer for the sound of Natalya's theme. Nattie has clearly heard enough too, bursting out from behind the curtain and making her way down the ramp. She circles the ring, grabs a microphone and enters the ring as Dana and Charlotte look on- disgusted. Nattie then speaks.

    NATALYA: Charlotte.. I just wanted to come out here and congratulate you on your victory against Sasha Banks at Battleground. It was an amazing match and I am grateful that you have brought the Women's Championship to Smackdown and so.. again.. Congratulations, Charlotte, I mean it. Well done.

    Charlotte and Dana Brooke look on confused, unsure if to believe the words of Nattie. Charlotte just nods as Nattie speaks again.

    NATALYA: However, that's where the positives for you end, Charlotte. I think I speak for everyone here tonight and watching at home that we've all heard and seen enough! Charlotte, you have so much ability, so much talent and yet you keep Dana Brooke around like a lost little puppy to help you steal victories and continue your championship reign? Charlotte- your last name might be Flair, but the truth is- you do nothing with style and you have no class!

    The crowd "Ohhh!" at the words of Nattie before cheering. Dana and Charlotte gobsmacked as Natalya continues on speaking.

    NATALYA: Charlotte, maybe you should take a page out of my book and have some Hart- have some passion for this business! Have some pride and determination to win matches and retain Championships the right way!

    Charlotte begins to laugh as she holds her hand in the air- suggesting she's about to speak.

    CHARLOTTE: You know what, Nattie?! You're getting more and more like your dear old Uncle Bret every day! Nothing but BITTERNESS AND JEALOUSY! Oh and speaking of Bret... He never was the best their is, the best there was or the best there ever will be because that title belongs to the FLAIRS! The greatest name and legacy in the WWE and wrestling history!

    Nattie rolls her eyes as the crowd gasp again as Dana and Charlotte begin to laugh. Nattie then replies.

    NATALYA: The Flairs? I respect everything that Ric has ever done and achieved in this business. Ric Flair is without doubt one of the greatest to ever step in the ring and wrestle. However you talk about the Flair legacy and you have done nothing to help it Charlotte.. In fact, you're only going to tarnish it! Also, while you want to stand there and slate my family, the Hart family- don't forget who broke you into this business and put you on the map at the original NXT TakeOver, it was me! As a matter of fact- I'd like to face you again, at SummerSlam and knock little miss Charlotte of her perch- or should I say throne by beating you for the Smackdown Women's Championship!

    Dana Brooke instantly begins shaking her head and wagging her finger while Charlotte replies and says..

    CHARLOTTE: NO! NO! NO- NOT GOING TO HAPPEN, NATTIE. That's not going to happen because you don't deserve to be in the same ring as me! You don't deserve a shot at my title! I mean.. Let's face it, Nattie. You're not even relevant anymore!

    With the barbed words coming out of Charlotte's mouth Nattie has heard enough and looks furious. She drops the microphone and goes to confront Charlotte face to face when Dana Brooke blinds her with a cheap shot and begins giving boots to the first ever female graduate of the Hart dungeon. Charlotte watches on before joining in and not before long- it's two on one and Nattie has no chance. Charlotte then screams for Nattie to get up as she's on her knee's and as she tries too.. Charlotte strikes with Natural Selection! Smackdown comes to an end with the crowd booing heavily while Charlotte stands over Natalya with the Women's Champions raised in the air and Dana Brooke at her side applauding.

    A small graphic appears on the right hand side of the screen advertising that right after Smackdown- Smackdown- talking Smack will be live on the WWE network with special guest- Seth Rollins! Hosted by Shane Mcmahon and Renee Young. The footage then fades to black.
