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



    Episode One - 26/07/16 - Buffalo, New York.

    RENEE YOUNG: Hello everyone, what's up and welcome to the first ever Smackdown Live exclusive WWE Network show, TALKING SMACK! We are live on the network, fresh from tonight's show, live from Buffalo and Shane.. It was a hell of a show, am I right?

    SHANE MCMAHON: Perfect, Renee. I mean, honestly, it was perfect. A perfect start to a new era of Smackdown- Smackdown Live and everything went to plan- I think we put on a great show for our fans tonight- I really do. Apollo Crews vs Neville, amazing. The tag team division, Orton's return, the announcement of the Demon King! Finn Balor, man, it was perfect, I'm happy Renee.

    RENEE YOUNG: Right?! I couldn't agree more, Shane. Now, you mentioned a few things and if we could- I'd love to talk about the match that everybody is talking about- Apollo Crews vs Neville! Shane, did both those guys take the chance tonight and steal the show?

    SHANE MCMAHON: Absolutely, Renee. They did a tremendous job and put on a great match. Honestly, it was one of those matches were both men just created magic and arrived. Neither deserved to lose. Apollo came out on top but do you know what- I'm going to announce right now that next week live from Bridgestone Arena, Nashville, Tennessee, we are going to see the rematch! I'm challenging both men to raise the bar again and who knows, maybe we could see one of them in the World Heavyweight Championship match at SummerSlam!



    RENEE YOUNG: Oh nice! Fans, you heard it here first- Apollo Crews vs Neville II next week. Shane, something else I would like to talk about and I'm sure you've seen the reaction on Twitter and social media outlets around the world- the arrival of the Demon King! Finn Balor! Next week! Huge, huge news, what kind of expectation do you have of Finn Balor and how far do you believe he can go in the WWE?

    SHANE MCMAHON: Oh! To the top, Renee. To the absolute top of the mountain- I have know doubt about it. Finn is super talented, super charismatic and he look's like a movie star, Renee. The kid has everything! Me and Eric sat down while we were drafting our selections and we looked at the NXT roster and he was the one we wanted and thankfully, we've got our man and I can't wait to see him arrive on Smackdown Live!

    Renee Young goes to speak and attempts to ask Shane another question when laughing is picked up on the audio from outside of the live camera footage. Shane and Renee both turn to face Seth Rollins walking onto the set wearing black skinny jeans and his "Redesign, Rebuild, Reclaim" shirt with a black suit jacket over the top as he takes a seat and picks up the microphone without prompt or an unofficial show welcome.

    RENEE YOUNG: Well.. A little earlier then expected fans, but Seth Rollins ladies and Gentleman!

    SHANE MCMAHON: Welcome, Seth. Good to see you. How'd you enjoy the show?



    SETH ROLLINS: Oh I'm sorry to break up this little thing but I couldn't control my laughter back there. Finn Balor? All the talk is about.. Finn... Balor? Oh come on! The talk should be about me.. Seth.. Freakin'... Rollins! The talk should be about how I should be standing here the WWE Champion! The talk should be how I didn't lose the match- Roman Reigns lost the match and it cost me my Championship! You know, I've been hanging out backstage and the look's I've been getting from people is a disgrace! People have been looking at me like some kind of failure for not bringing back the Championship when in truth- I'm the uncrowned WWE Champion because I didn't lose the damn match!

    Renee goes to speak and ask Rollins a question, however Seth continues to vent and rant. Continuing to speak.

    SETH ROLLINS: I'm not stupid, Renee. I know I have a lot of enemies due to my links with the Authority on Raw and because I've never been afraid to do what it takes to get to the top- even it means stabbing my friends in the back! I'd do it again, too! Redesign! Rebuild! Reclaim! It's not just a nice slogan, it's now a way of life and just like I was on Raw, I'm going to prove that I am the MAN on Smackdown!

    Shane then goes to speak- but Rollins clearly has come here to speak his mind and he continues on.

    SETH ROLLINS: Nobody... NOBODY is better then Seth Rollins! Not Apollo Crews, not Neville, Not AJ Styles and certainty not Finn Balor! Finn is nothing more then hype, a flash in the pan and it will soon become apparent that he's not in my league because I will become the new, World Heavyweight Champion! From next week- Seth Freakin' Rollins reclaims his spot on on top of the wrestling world and it starts by Showing the Demon King who's the.. MAN! Now, excuse me, I have things to do.

    Seth then gets up and drops the microphone before adjusting his suit jacket and walking away out of the camera view as Shane and Renee just stare before looking at each other puzzled.

    A small commercial plays and it's the World Heavyweight Championship one from Smackdown Live that broadcast with the announcement from Shane on the audio as the narrator ask's who will follow in the footsteps of legends like Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Triple H, Sting and many more! The commercial then finishes.

    RENEE YOUNG: SummerSlam, the hottest party of the summer and WWE Universe, I just know you're going to be there when we will crown a new World Heavyweight Champion! Shane, I've got to ask, why the World Heavyweight Championship? Why not make a new title?

    SHANE MCMAHON: It's a fair question, Renee. I cannot say that me and Eric Bischoff didn't think about creating a new one from scratch and calling it something crazy like.. I dunno', the Universal Championship and then shout to the heavens about how much bigger and better it is then the WWE Championship because the truth is- we did think about something like that. In the end though- Honor, prestige, history. That's what the World Heavyweight Championship means to the WWE and the wrestling business. Who will follow in the footsteps of legends? Well we are going to find out Renee and I can't wait to see it go down at SummerSlam!

    RENEE YOUNG: Me too, Shane. Now switching attention and I want to talk about what went down at the end of Smackdown Live. I'm talking about THAT confrontation between the now Smackdown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair and the queen of harts, Natalya. I mean- it was intense!

    SHANE MCMAHON: There is a saying in this business Renee and that's when the show is live, anything can and will happen. Natalya took a chance to go out there, say what she really thinks and has got the fans intrigued. Her and Charlotte threw barbs at each other- I mean took shots at family members, degraded each others legacies and it got personal. So much so that what you didn't see- before we came live on the air here, Charlotte and Natalya had to be pulled apart backstage!

    RENEE YOUNG: Wow, I think we've got the footage Shane, let's take a look.

    A video then plays with a WWE.com exclusive logo on the right hand side. It shows Charlotte backstage where Natalya is coming back from the attack and from behind the curtain. Natalya goes to confront Charlotte once more when Dana again attacks Nattie and a brawl breaks out. Various backstage staff and roster members are in between with Eric Bischoff finally stepping in to split them up. The video then stops.

    As the live footage returns from the video, Natalya has entered and takes a seat alongside Shane and Renee Young.

    RENEE YOUNG: Natalya, welcome!

    NATALYA: Hello Renee, I'm sorry to barge in here un-announced but Shane, I had to speak to you. You seen what happened out there right? Charlotte disrespected my family, my legacy, my Uncle Bret. I want to teach this fake queen that nobody talks about my family and disrespects them! Shane, I want to face Charlotte next week on Smackdown!

    SHANE MCMAHON: Nattie, take it from me, I know what it's like to have a family name legacy to live up to and deal with it- it's not easy. Now, I have the utmost respect for both the Harts and the Flairs, two of the greatest family's in the business and I mean it. I did see what happened out there and both of you got a little personal. furthermore, despite who might have started it- we can't have wrestlers take matters into there own hands and brawling around this arena, that's why we have matches, that's were differences are settled. That said, I love and respect the passion you both have and the crowd did too, it was real emotion. I think I speak for everyone on the blue brand when I say I would love nothing more then to see two of the best female athletes in the world today go one on one and have an absolute classic of a match! Nattie, you will face Charlotte at SummerSlam for the WWE Smackdown Women's Championship!

    Natalya looks delighted as Shane finishes his words. Nattie nods her head and thanks Shane before walking away out of the picture.

    RENEE YOUNG: Oh my goodness, block buster announcement from Smackdown commissioner, Shane Mcmahon. Our first official match of SummerSlam is announced and it will be Charlotte vs Natalya for the Smackdown Women's Championship! Amazing. Fans, that's all we've got time for tonight. I hope you enjoyed the show and both me and my special guest- Shane Mcmahon, will see you next time! Goodnight everyone!

    As Talking Smack came to a finish, the footage would roll into a vignette, teasing the arrival of NXT's hottest tag team!



    The footage would play showing some of there smash-mouth hard hitting action. Victories over the likes of DIY, The VaudeVillians and American Alpha! The narrator says they're the longest reigning NXT tag team Champions of all time and they're all about fists, no flips. The footage then finishes with a montage of them landing their famous "Shatter Machine" finisher before the words.. "Coming soon!" appear on the screen.



    A debut tease is then shown of a live tweet from the Revival in direct response to the Dudley Boyz before the footage fades and the show is done.

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

    Alrighty time to review

    I enjoy the show I like how your building up Ryder in it as this underdog but I think it maybe a swerve with a heel turn and teaming up with Curt Hawkins which is really nice for tag division.

    I really like how you give your womens divsion the nod on SD being big part of the show.

    Wyatt saying he set Harper & Rowan free while him and Braun take over SD xD

    RKO > ADR anyday I never liked Del Rio so happy to see him lose

    KO & Y2J still together I love it hope they stick around

    Apollo Crews vs Neville was motn great read

    Also I like WHC on SD its nice

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



    NEWS & RUMORS!

    - As seen on the recent Raw episode with the return of the Spirit Squad and the use of former NXT talent Leva Bates it's believed that both Raw and Smackdown Live are actively seeking and pursuing former talents to help bolster there respective rosters. It's believed that former talents will need less time to adjust and will be able to instantly work into the WWE lifestyle and schedule. Notable names include the likes of Carlito, Tommy Dreamer, Shelton Benjamin, Curt Hawkins and Jinder Mahal. As of now, no word on any confirmed signings but that is expected to change in the coming weeks.

    - Raw's Nikki Bella continue's to work and prepare for her comeback. Nikki Bella returned to "light" training on Monday at the Performance Center and posted this picture..



    ..It's worth noting that there is no specific time frame for her return but if all goes well and as expected, Nikki Bella could return to TV around September time where she will be a vocal point for the Raw Women's Division.

    - Eric Bischoff's return to the WWE was too many a surprise with a source stating that the former WCW man was not always the first choice by WWE officials. It's believed that original plans had Shane Mcmahon and Daniel Bryan on Smackdown while Stephanie Mcmahon would work with Mick Foley on Raw. Apparently Mick was seeking a return but it's understood that his hip issues and past injuries along with the schedule made plans change. It is understood that with Eric Bischoff now confirmed he could play a factor in a possible return of Hulk Hogan to WWE Tv due to there off-screen friendship. However this could just be rumors as it has also been touted that other former WCW stars like Goldberg and Kevin Nash are being linked with returns. While it is unlikely to see Hogan and Nash return for different reasons- Goldberg has been working hard in the gym and still keeps himself in shape and has not ruled out a return one day for the right deal.

    - Curtis Axel rebirth? As seen on Raw recently it's understood that there are small plans for a Curtis Axel push and that will come with a repackage of his character. There is no doubt backstage that Axel is very talented and the third generation star has been used to train with the likes of the Rock and Brock Lesnar to get them ring ready but backstage there is believe that Axel struggles to get himself across to a wider audience. According to a close source, this will be Axel's last chance and should this not work- he will be allowed to leave and released.

    - NJPW partnership with the WWE? Many were surprised to see AJ Styles, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson under there official Bullet Club gimmick from Japan. WWE often like to have complete control over gimmicks, characters and the official logo's for their own merchandise and protection but this represents a change in the company policy.



    It is believed that "the Club" name was struggling to resonate with the WWE Universe and that Bullet Club shirts and merchandise were becoming more noticeable on WWE Tv to the growth and popularity of the team. It's believed that WWE and NJPW have come to an agreement where WWE will be allowed to use the Bullet Club image and rights on TV but that NJPW will gain a percentage of merchandise profit sales while benefiting from the exposure on a global scale.

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

    Before the show begins, the camera cuts backstage as we see Stephanie McMahon speaking on the phone.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON:
    So it's official? The challenge from Randy Orton to Brock Lesnar for a dream match at Summerslam has been accepted?

    Stephanie smiles as the fans can be heard cheering.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON:
    That's perfect, Shane. The Beast vs. The Viper- a match that is 15 years in the making. Two of the best superstars that the WWE has to offer today are going to compete in what will be a jam-packed Summerslam.

    It's revealed that Stephanie is talking to her brother, Shane McMahon as she continues.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON:
    It's great isn't it? And things are about to get better as later tonight, we will have Paul Heyman & Brock Lesnar on Raw as they address Randy Orton's challenge.

    More cheers are heard as Stephanie continues.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON:
    It's going to be exciting, but with what The Viper had to say on Smackdown about Lesnar- it's going to get real tonight. I'll leave you to it Shane, the flagship show is about to begin.

    The cameras cut off as the opening video package for Raw begins to play.



    1st August 2016 – Phillips Arena – Atlanta, Georgia



    The fireworks erupt as we are live in the Phillips Arena tonight! The fans can be seeing cheering in anticipation for Raw to begin as we head over to the announcers table. We have Mauro Ranallo, Michael Cole & Corey Graves on commentary! Ranallo welcomes us to Monday Night Raw as he hypes up how we have a fantastic Raw in store for the WWE Universe tonight. The first match will have the #1 contender to the WWE Champion in Roman Reigns take on The Underdog From The Underground- Sami Zayn! And we will also see a big main event as Sheamus takes on the WWE Champion in Dean Ambrose in what will be some hard-hitting action! Cole talks about how Brock Lesnar & Paul Heyman will also be here tonight, as we heard Stephanie speaking on the phone- and their match for Summerslam has been made official! Graves says that is going to be a fantastic match as it is 15 years in the making! And tonight, we're also going to see The New Day celebrate holding the WWE Tag Team Championship for 344 days as they have broken a record- this show is going to be awesome!

    MIRACLE

    The fans respond with a pop as Cesaro comes out to his old music. The Swiss Cyborg is suited and booted tonight as he has a mic in hand. He makes his way to the ring as fans can be seen lifting up Cesaro Section signs. Ranallo talks about how last week- Cesaro earned a shot at the Intercontinental Championship against The Miz for Summerslam! Cesaro enters the ring as he begins to speak.

    CESARO: The fans in Atlanta, Georgia are fired up tonight!

    Cheers for The Peak of Technique.

    CESARO: I see all the Cesaro Section signs that are being held up, and I really appreciate the support guys. It feels good knowing that I have the people backing in me in my journey to the top... and I'm out here to address my match for Summerslam, as last week- I won a Fatal Four Way match to become the #1 contender to the Intercontinental Championship.

    The fans pop.

    CESARO: However shortly after my match, I also heard what The Miz had to say about me.. and he was going on and on and on and on and on about how he was angry at having to face me at Summerslam. As a matter of fact, he is refusing to walk into Summerslam and face me as long as I am the #1 contender.

    Boos for the mention of The Miz.

    CESARO: But I understand exactly what is going on. The Miz claims that he has beaten me time after time, but that's not the real reason why he doesn't want face me. The Intercontinental Champion is trying to avoid me because one simple reason...

    The Miz is scared of me.

    Fans cheer in agreement.

    CESARO: Hell, I don't even blame him. If I was The Miz, I'd be scared of me too- but that's not the point. The point is that The Miz is the Intercontinental Champion but he is refusing to defend the title. And the last time I checked? That title represented the workhorses of the WWE.

    More cheers as the fans agree.

    CESARO: The Intercontinental Championship has a prestigious linage to it. We had legends such as Shawn Michaels.. Bret Hart... Ricky Steamboat... and they put on some of the greatest matches in WWE history by defending that title with honor and pride. They didn't care about who their opponents were- they put their heart into wrestling the best superstars to be fighting champions.

    The fans pop for the mentions of the legends.

    CESARO: But instead? The champion wants to avoid me because The Miz knows exactly what the score is. He knows that if he walks into Brooklyn- he's going to walk out of Brooklyn as a former Intercontinental Champion!

    The fans cheer as they agree with Cesaro.

    CESARO:
    I EARNED my title shot- and I'm not going to sit back and watch The A-List Superstar do what he does best which is taking the coward's way out.

    More cheers as Cesaro goes to continue speaking but the lights immediately cut off...

    'QUIET ON THE SET! CAN WE PLEASE HAVE QUIET ON THE SET...'

    The fans begin to boo as they know who's coming.

    'AWEEEEEEEEEEEESOME!'

    I CAME TO PLAY

    A HUGE negative reaction tonight as Atlanta erupts with boos for the Intercontinental Champion. The Miz comes out with Maryse, and the champion is wearing a red suit whereas Maryse is wearing a black dress. The Miz begins to speak as they stand on the stage.

    THE MIZ:
    You heard Cesaro, can we please have some quiet because right now? You're boring me... and you're boring my beautiful wife.

    The fans boo as Miz & Maryse make their way down to the ring. They enter the ring as Miz continues.

    THE MIZ:
    Who even cares about those so called legends you just named? Sure... the likes of Bret Hart & Shawn Michaels have held this title- but screw the both of them! NONE of them come close to me. There isn't a single man that you have named that is better than ME!

    Boos from the fans as Cesaro begins to laugh- clearly disagreeing with The Miz' words.

    THE MIZ: You claim that I am scared of you? Oh Cesaro, I find your accusations flattering because I'm NOT scared of you. I think it's time that I must do some reminding because I don't think you quite understand the reasoning behind my refusal for having to face you at Summerslam...

    So let's prove exactly how many times I have defeated you.

    Miz points to the TitanTron.

    THE MIZ: Roll the footage!

    The TitanTron shows Payback from May 1st 2016 as we see The Miz defending the Intercontinental Championship against Cesaro. The clip show Miz rolling up Cesaro for the win to retain his title. The cameras cut back to The Miz.

    THE MIZ: That's the first time I defeated you with the title on the line Cesaro- but it doesn't end there!

    We go back to Extreme Rules on May 22nd 2016 as it was a Fatal Four Way match with Miz defending his championship against Cesaro, Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens. We see Miz pinning Cesaro again as he successfully defends his title again.

    THE MIZ: Oh, you thought I was finished? Here's the last clip!

    Another clip is shown from May 26th 2016 on an edition of Smackdown before the brand extension. We see Miz defending his title against Cesaro yet again, with Miz nailing Cesaro with an SKF before covering him to retain his title. The cameras cut back to the champion and his wife as the fans boo loudly.

    THE MIZ: Well, well, well. The evidence is there, Cyborg. It isn't once... it isn't twice... it is THREE times that I have defended my title against you before pinning you- and successfully defeating you. Do you still want to question why I am refusing to face you at Summerslam because like you- I could go on and on and on and on.

    Maryse begins to laugh as Miz mocks Cesaro, whilst Cesaro just stares a dagger into Miz's eyes.

    THE MIZ:
    Did I hit a nerve? Because it doesn't matter what you say Cesaro... it doesn't change the fact that every single time you have faced me in a match- whether it was a multi-man match or a singles match... you have screwed it up by losing. So it's not that I'm scared of you...

    I'm simply not going to tarnish my reputation by facing a man that I have defeated several times!


    More boos for The A-Lister as Miz looks at the audience, and raises his hand.

    THE MIZ: When my hand goes up, your mouths go SHUT!!

    The fans continue to boo as Miz looks back at Cesaro.

    THE MIZ: How many times do I have to beat somebody for people to realize that there's just no hope? You will NEVER take this championship off me... but nobody wants to believe me. The entire world still thinks you have a shot at beating me. But we all know that's not going to happen...

    Because you are NOTHING.

    Loud boos for the champion as he rips into his challenger.

    THE MIZ: When I look at you? I see an individual that can perform well in the ring... but that's just about it. There's nothing special to you Cesaro. You're a boring man that is just too nice to be at the top. You lack the charisma that a real champion needs.

    The Miz continues as Cesaro is clearly getting more and more angrier by the second.

    THE MIZ:
    Nobody has any real faith in you... the idea of you succeeding in the WWE is as little as the chance of you winning this title... which by the way... is zero. So just face it Cesaro... you don't have what it takes to end my championship reign. I'm going to hold this belt for a VERY long time, and you won't do anything about it. And besides Cesaro, how do you expect to beat me at Summerslam...

    The Miz looks Cesaro in the eye.

    THE MIZ: When you can't even connect with the WWE Universe?

    Damn. HUGE boos for The Miz tonight as Cesaro has had enough! He begins to open the buttons on his suit as Miz' words have riled Cesaro up. The fans are cheering as Cesaro seems to be getting fired up as he takes off his suit and his shirt. Cesaro drops his mic- and The Swiss Cyborg goes for a straight shot to the face of The Miz...

    But The Miz predicts the move and he drags Maryse in front of him!! The fans go crazy with boos as Cesaro is unable to land the shot with the champion's wife in the way. The Miz exits the ring after taking the coward's way out. Maryse also exits the ring as Cesaro looks very, very pissed off...

    FLIGHT OF THE VALKYRIES

    Atlanta erupts with a big pop as the music of Raw's General Manager hits! Daniel Bryan comes out with a mic in hand, as he begins to do the YES chant whilst the fans join along with him. Bryan smiles, clearly appreciating the reaction as he looks towards the commotion in the Phillips Arena. The Beard speaks as he has something to say...

    DANIEL BRYAN: I think I need to address a couple of issues regarding the match at Summerslam. Miz- you might be the Intercontinental Champion... but you're not the man that makes the decisions around here because I'M the General Manager of Monday Night Raw!

    The fans pop in agreement as Cesaro also nods. The Miz & Maryse begin to laugh from outside the ring, not taking Daniel Bryan seriously.

    DANIEL BRYAN: Yes, keep laughing Miz... I'm going to make something very clear. I understand your reasoning behind not wanting to face Cesaro at Summerslam- but I honestly couldn't care less because there WILL be an Intercontinental Championship match at the hottest party of the Summer. You will go one on one with Cesaro whether you like it or not... and if you refuse to go to Brookyln?

    You will be stripped out of the Intercontinental Championship.

    HUGE pop as The Miz & Maryse erupt in a fit of anger as Miz can't believe it!

    THE MIZ:
    Are you kidding me right now? THIS IS A JOKE!! WHY do I have to always prove myself against Cesaro?! I am the best Intercontinental Champion that this company has ever had- and I deserve...

    Bryan interrupts.

    DANIEL BRYAN: ENOUGH!!

    Bryan isn't taking any of The Miz' complaining as he continues to speak.

    DANIEL BRYAN: I was not finished. Now I'm not going to deny that the series of The Miz/Cesaro matches have been very repetitive- and this is a new era of course! So at Summerslam? I'm going to up the ante. The fans want to know who REALLY wants that title, and they want to see the both of you do whatever it takes to win... so Cesaro? If you lose this match at Summerslam...

    You will not compete for the Intercontinental title again as long as The Miz is champion.

    The fans erupt with 'NO!' chants as they don't agree with Bryan's decision. Cesaro looks to be very confused with the decision as The Miz & Maryse are loving it.

    DANIEL BRYAN: I'm not done... because the same goes for you Miz. If you lose the match at Summerslam against Cesaro.. not only do you lose your championship- but you will also not gain a rematch clause or a shot at the Intercontinental title either.

    The fans then erupt with 'YES!' chants as Miz can't believe it! Miz can be heard shouting 'Are you serious?!' as he clearly feels as if he's being screwed.

    DANIEL BRYAN:
    Cesaro vs. The Miz in a Last Chance Match for the Intercontinental Championship at Brooklyn? Now that sounds explosive to me. Atlanta, Georgia, enjoy the rest of the show!

    Bryan heads to the back as an angry pair of Miz & Maryse turn around, knowing full well that they can't do anything about the GM's decision. They turn to Cesaro as Cesaro stares The Miz down with a big smile on his face- mouthing the words 'it's on' as Miz begins to get very serious. The two men continue to trash talk each other as we head to our first break of the night.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The cameras cut to the announcers table as Ranallo hypes up how the Intercontinental Championship Match at Summerslam just got more explosive than ever! A Last Chance stipulation has been added into the match- and it applies to both Cesaro & The Miz, as the loser won't be able to compete for the Intercontinental title again as long as the other is champion. Cole says that he doesn't know who's going to walk out of Summerslam as champion. Graves says that up next, we have two of WWE's most popular superstars in action!

    WORLD'S APART

    Atlanta bursts into a frenzy of cheers for The Underdog From The Underground as Sami Zayn comes out to the stage! Zayn looks as fired up as ever as he makes his way to the ring, slapping the hands of the fans in audience. Ranallo talks about how Zayn lost the chance to be #1 contender last week, but he looks to pick himself back up with a win over The Big Dog.

    THE TRUTH REIGNS

    A HUGE mixed reaction for The Big Dog as Roman Reigns comes out to the stage! Reigns makes his way to the ring, as there are definitely more boos for him tonight- especially with who he's going up against. Reigns enters the ring, and the referee calls for the bell.

    Match 1: Roman Reigns vs. Sami Zayn

    Finish:
    This match has been full of back and forth action as it has gone on for a good 15 minutes so far. Roman Reigns has played the role of the aggressor as he has been very dominant, and the fans have displayed negative reactions for The Big Dog throughout this match. On the other hand, Sami Zayn has been the resilient underdog- taking everything that Roman has been giving him, and as you'd expect- Sami has the backing of the entire Phillips Arena tonight as they continue to cheer the underdog who is giving it his all.

    The finish comes when Reigns & Zayn are both exhausted as Ranallo hypes up how this has been a great opener. The two superstars begin to grapple each other as Reigns had hold of Zayn's arm- and Reigns immediately goes for a Clothesline with his other arm but Zayn dodges it! Reigns misses but this leads to Zayn being in control of Reigns' arm. Zayn takes advantage by running to the corner and jumping from the second top rope onto third top rope before launching in the air whilst having Reigns in his grasp...




    SPRINGBOARD TORNADO DDT!! The fans erupt as Zayn smashes Reigns' head onto the canvas, and Zayn goes for the cover. 1... 2... BUT REIGNS KICKS OUT! The fans can't believe it, and neither can Zayn- but Zayn is wasting no time. The Underdog from the Underground slowly picks himself back up to his feet... and he grabs Reigns before eventually being able to pick Reigns up to his feet... EXPLODER SUPLEX TO REIGNS! Reigns crashes onto the corner, as Zayn begins to hype himself up. The fans are cheering Zayn on, as Zayn lines Reigns up and motions for the Helluva Kick. He charges towards Reigns... BUT REIGNS CONNECTS WITH A SUPERMAN PUNCH!!

    The fans boo at the counter as Reigns knocks Zayn to the ground. Reigns, using the ropes for leverage- picks himself back up, before ROARING to the annoyance of the WWE Universe. Reigns motions for Zayn to get up as he slowly does so. Zayn turns around...




    SPEAR TO ZAYN!! Reigns immediately goes for the cover as the referee counts. 1... 2... 3... AND REIGNS GETS THE WIN!!

    Spoiler:

    WINNER: ROMAN REIGNS


    Following the match, Reigns raises his hands up high in the air- but The Big Dog has no time to celebrate as he motions for a mic to be given to him. He's eventually given one before he looks to the audience.

    ROMAN REIGNS: Ambrose... I know you're watching, so listen up.

    Reigns looks into the camera as he looks very serious.

    ROMAN REIGNS: Last week... he came out to the ring after my match- and I showed the champion respect. We bumped fists, and it was game on for Summerslam... but then he decided to disrespect me by waving the WWE Championship around my face.

    Reigns doesn't look too happy as he continues.

    ROMAN REIGNS: So let me remind you of something Dean... that title you waved around my face? I have held that title THREE more times than you ever have in your career.

    The fans boo loudly but Reigns isn't finished.

    ROMAN REIGNS: Hell, the first time I won the WWE Championship? It was in this exact arena when I defeated the same Lunatic Fringe at Survivor Series 2015.

    More boos for Reigns.

    ROMAN REIGNS: And while I consider you my brother- at Summerslam? I'M the man who's gonna win, and you're gonna come second place to me.

    Reigns continues as the fans disagree with his words.

    ROMAN REIGNS:
    Truth be told, even though you're the WWE Champion- you're used to being second place Ambrose. And if you don't believe me... then why was I drafted #1 on Raw and not you?

    The backlash in The Phillips Arena is unreal as Reigns continues with his fighting talk.

    ROMAN REIGNS:
    Not even Smackdown Live considered you as their #1 draft pick because they went Charlotte over you... so Ambrose- I'm talking to you as brother to brother... man to man. Stay in your lane Ambrose... or you won't even make it to the finish line at Summerslam...

    Because this is MY yard now.


    Reigns drops the mic, and he exits the ring as the fans chant 'YOU SUCK!' at The Big Dog. And as usual, Reigns pays no attention to the fans as the only thing on his mind is the WWE Championship. Ranallo talks about Reigns was fiery with his words tonight as the rivalry between the brothers starts to boil.

    The cameras zoom out to reveal The Boss standing beside Charly Caruso as the fans can be heard cheering loudly.

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    Now Sasha, we've just received word from Stephanie McMahon that tonight- you will go one on one with Alicia Fox. How do you feel about having to face the women that backed you up last week?

    Sasha speaks.

    SASHA BANKS: You know what Charly.. I have respect for everything that Alicia Fox has done in this business. She's very underrated, and she doesn't get the respect that she deserves. And I really do appreciate how she backed me up against those wretched wannabes last week...

    But as Sasha goes to continue speaking, the camera zooms out to reveal Alicia Fox standing, watching and listening to everything that Sasha had to say. Alicia joins Caruso & Banks as she begins to speak.

    ALICIA FOX: If you're ever in a situation with Alexa Bliss & Summer Rae in which you're outnumbered- then I will be there to back you, that's not a problem girl. But I hope you understand that last week? Was simply a one-off... because we all have intentions of being the face of this Womens division- and despite all the respect we have for each other?

    You're simply another women that's in my way.

    Banks nods as she acknowledges what Fox is saying- before replying to Fox's comments.

    SASHA BANKS: I understand that... and the fact is- every single women in this roster has the same goal, and that is to be the best in the Womens division. It doesn't matter how I feel about you- because I'll have to treat you like I'd treat any of my opponents... and when me & you go face to face tonight?

    I'm just gonna have to show you who's The Boss around here!


    Sasha & Alicia begin to stare off following their confrontation as the cameras cut to the announcers table.

    Ranallo says that Alicia Fox will go one on one with Sasha Banks- and he can't wait to see what two of the most fierce women in the Raw division can bring to the table tonight. Cole agrees, and he says that despite both women having respect- Fox & Banks both know that they have to do everything in their power to win this match. Graves says moving on, we have some more singles action up next!

    ???: Well look who we have 'ere Uce!

    Gable & Jordan look to the other side as the camera zooms out- to reveal The Usos standing beside them as the fans respond with another pop.

    The Usos begin to laugh, mocking American Alpha's opponents from last week.

    JIMMY USO:
    Out of all the tag teams they put y'all up against... they pick The Spirit Squad? Damn! But to be completely honest... it don't make sense, does it Uce? After all.. American Alpha are gettin' ALL the attention around here.. yet The Usos couldn't even get on the show last week.

    The Usos then turn serious as Gable & Jordan look on.

    JEY USO:
    Hell, we ain't even booked for Raw tonight! Can you believe 'dat? We are former TWO time Tag Team Champions.. plus we been here longer than y'all... and as far as we're concerned? We DESERVE better!

    Gable & Jordan respond as The Usos look very annoyed.

    CHAD GABLE: Look... we have the utmost respect for the both of you. You guys are one of the best tag teams in the WWE today, and we can see why you two would want opportunities... but we're not the people you should be complaining to.

    Gable & Jordan look at each other, before Jordan speaks, looking back at The Usos.

    JASON JORDAN: And from what I can remember- the last time you two got an opportunity was at Battleground. You guys could have went a step closer to earning a shot at the Tag Team titles... but instead...

    You lost to Breezango.

    The fans can be heard cheering as The Usos begin to get angry.

    JEY USO:
    Oh, you wanna go there huh?

    The two teams begin to get in each other's faces as it looks as if a brawl is about to break out- but that's until Stephanie McMahon gets involved!

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON
    : Stop it guys!

    Stephanie manages to split both teams up as The Usos & American Alpha look like they want to fight.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON:
    I heard everything you guys had to say. Usos, you weren't the only tag team featured last week- but I understand your frustration. I've decided that I'm going to make a match that will feature ALL the tag teams on Raw. So tonight? We will have a Tag Team Turmoil match- and the winner of that match will go onto Summerslam to face The New Day for the WWE Tag Team Championships! How does that sound?

    The Usos & American Alpha nod in approval, before looking back at each other with cold looks as both teams go their separate ways.

    The cameras cut to the announcers table. Ranallo says that we have another big match for tonight as we will see a Tag Team Turmoil Match with implications for Summerslam! Cole states that the how the winner will recieve a shot at the WWE Tag Team Championips at the hottest party of summer. Graves says that up next- we have some Womens action!

    We go over to the ring as we see one of Raw's newest women superstar in Blue Pants! Cheers are heard for Blue Pants as Graves talks about how Blue Pants made her Raw debut last week as she was pinned by Alexa Bliss... but tonight is a chance for her to redeem that loss.

    SO COOL

    The fans respond with boos as The First Lady of WWE comes out. Summer Rae begins to pose on the stage, before pointing to the back- as she has company... and Alexa Bliss comes out! Bliss joins Rae on the stage before they make their way to the ring. Summer enters the ring as Blue Pants looks on, with Cole pondering whether this is a new alliance being formed? The referee calls for the bell as the match begins.

    Match 3. Blue Pants vs. Summer Rae

    Finish:
    Summer Rae has been in control for the majority of the match- but Blue Pants was putting up a better fight than last week. This match has gone on for 7 minutes as Ranallo asks whether The First Lady or the underdog comes out on top.

    Spoiler:

    WINNER: SUMMER RAE


    The fans begin to boo as Summer Rae begins to celebrate- and the referee goes to raise her hand, but she refuses. Blue Pants is stirring in the ring as Bliss joins Rae in the ring with two mics in her hand, as she passes one to Rae. The duo begin to look at Blue Pants who is upset following her loss, and they begin to taunt her.

    SUMMER RAE: Awwwww... is someone upset that they lost? Blue Pants... please could you do us all a favour and get the HELL out of our ring!

    The fans continue to boo, clearly not happy with Summer Rae's words as Alexa Bliss begins to laugh. Blue Pants looks on, but she doesn't intervene as she does what she has been told to do. Blue Pants walks to the back with a face of disappointment as the duo in the ring smile.

    SUMMER RAE:
    Last week, Alexa Bliss made her Raw debut in a match against Blue Pants... and as you would expect... Alexa came out on top as she looked to dominate. But tonight? I had to prove every stupid person in this arena wrong as I needed to show exactly why I, The first Lady of WWE, shouldn't have been forgotten about.

    Summer continues.

    SUMMER RAE: This Womens Evolution has needed me from the very start- and tonight was just the beginning! Me & Alexa Bliss... we aren't just any ordinary superstars. We are two ladies that will dominate this Womens division!

    The WWE Universe clearly disagree with Summer Rae as they respond with a negative reaction- but Alexa Bliss seems to be annoyed by the response, and she cuts in on the mic.

    ALEXA BLISS: WWE Universe... show some RESPECT for the First Lady of WWE!

    Atlanta continues to be in disagreement as they boo.

    ALEXA BLISS: You can boo us all you want- but I understand what issue is! You would all rather cheer for something pathetic like Sasha Banks' fairy tale dreams... and you're all too focused on rooting for crazy girls like Alicia Fox who have NO class or self-respect.

    Loud boos for The Goddess.

    ALEXA BLISS:
    Please... do carry on... but it really doesn't matter. There isn't anybody that will stop us because we are dangerous... we are beautiful... but most importantly... we are PRESTIGE! We're making it clear that whether you like us or not.. The First Lady & The Goddess are here to run TERROR on this Womens division.

    Alexa Bliss drops the mic with as the entire audience in the Phillips Arena are full of outrage. The two women exit the ring, and begin to walk to the back as Summer Rae's music plays.

    On the announcers table- Cole talks about how this alliance that has just been formed between Alexa Bliss & Summer Rae should have the Raw Womens division alert. Graves says that all the women in this division are individuals- so Bliss & Rae have clearly took it upon themselves to band together to get stronger. Ranallo says that after the commercial break- we will have The Beast in Brock Lesnar out here with his advocate in Paul Heyman as they address Randy Orton's Summerslam challenge!

    NEXT BIG THING

    The fans explode with a HUGE mixed reaction for the music of THE BEAST as Brock Lesnar comes out to the stage with Paul Heyman! The pyros go off for Lesnar's entrance before Lesnar begins to walk to the ring- with his advocate swaggering ahead of him. They enter the ring as Heyman is given a mic, and is set to speak as some fans join along with Heyman.

    PAUL HEYMAN: Ladies and gentleman. My name is Paul Heyman... and I am the advocate of the one and only Beast of the WWE... BROOOOOOCK LESNAAAAAAAAAAAAR!

    Mixed reaction for Heyman & Lesnar as Heyman continues.

    PAUL HEYMAN: Now... it isn't a surprise as to why me & my client are out here tonight, but in order to refresh your memory- let's recap the entire situation, shall we? So firstly, at Battleground- we had the good ol' JR interview none other than The Viper himself... RANDY ORTON!

    Huge pop from the fans for the mention of Orton.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    Randy Orton had returned after a shoulder injury which must have been very, VERY grueling for him. He announced that he was fit and healthy to return to the ring, and Randy is focused as ever. But when JR asked Randy what his plans were for his return... he replied with my client's name... BROOOOOOCK LESNAAARRRR!

    Another mixed reaction as Lesnar begins to show a sadistic looking smile on his face.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    And there ISN'T any denying that you caused a storm Randy.. you generated plenty of excitement. You got the entire WWE Universe excited for even the THOUGHT of having The Viper vs. The Beast at Summerslam!

    Huge pop for the mention as Heyman smiles.

    PAUL HEYMAN: It's a match that EVERYBODY is craving to see... it's a dream match! It's a big match for the people at Summerslam.. it's a great cheque for my client... but the real question is... is it good for you? Because when I was watching the Battleground PPV, I thought to myself that maybe you hadn't thought this through. It kept going over and over my head. And then the match was made official. The Viper would go one on one with The Beast at Summerslam! But it was at THAT moment that something dawned on me. And that something is very simple...

    That Randy Orton had made the BIGGEST mistake of his career.

    Boos can be heard as Lesnar smirks- and Heyman continues talking.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    Randy Orton has ONLY just returned from his shoulder injury.. and he wants to go against MY Beast? Randy- there isn't no one disputing the fact that you have done it ALL in the WWE... but the difference between yourself.. and my client is the simple fact that BROOOOOCK LESNAAAR is the real deal! He's done it ALL in the WWE... but most importantly- he DOMINATED the UFC. My client has FLOURISHED by snapping shoulders and breaking arms... So tell me Mr. Viper...

    Whatcha gonna do when THE BEAST is coming for you?!

    Mixed reaction as some Orton chants can be heard.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    My client has proven that he can be successful when he goes OUT of his comfort zone.. but what about The Viper himself? We all know that a snake never strikes unless it's ready. A snake never escapes it's comfort zone. It's a known fact that a snake always stays on the ground unless it needs to... but you're not going to strike Randy. You're not going to be comfortable in your OWN comfort zone because my client is going to TEAR YOU APART.

    Lesnar nods in agreement as Heyman speaks with fire.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    And you had the AUDACITY to talk about how my client needs enhancements unlike you... well here's the thing Randy. That was just ONE mistake. ONE slip from my client. But you're not any different Randy! Who the hell are you to talk about failing drugs test...

    When you're the same man that got tested positive for marijuana?

    'OOOOHHHHH' says the Atlanta crowd as the excitement just gets even more bigger.

    PAUL HEYMAN: Is that why you hear voices in your head Randy? Did the voices in your tell you to challenge MY Beast because let me assure you of this. It doesn't matter WHO my client faces at Summerslam.. because either way he is walking out with a big paycheck to support his family. My client doesn't need Randy Orton... Randy Orton NEEDS my client. And at Summerslam? The Viper will be added to the list of people that my client has conquered.

    Mixed reaction as Heyman carries on speaking.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    The Viper says that it only takes ONE RKO to make my client sleep... but that's the thing Randy- The RKO... that's ALL you have? The Beast has an F5 in his arsenal that can shatter your face! My client has a Kimura Lock that can SNAP your arm and your shoulder! But most importantly? My client has MULTIPLE variations of Suplex's that will cause Randy Orton to CRASH and BURN on his path to SUPLEX CITY BITCH!!!

    MAKING MOVES

    Wait, what? The confusion in the arena is clear as Titus O'Neil's music hits, and O'Neil comes out- wearing an all grey suit and trousers. O'Neil makes his way to the ring, with Heyman & Lesnar looking just as confused as the fans in attendance tonight. O'Neil enters the ring as he's given a mic, and he begins to speak.

    TITUS O'NEIL: Ladies and gentleman, my name is Titus O'Neil! Paul, Brock- it's pleasure to meet you guys!

    O'Neil offers his hand out for Paul Heyman to shake- but Heyman begins to chuckle to himself whilst ignoring the handshake.

    TITUS O'NEIL: Okay... maybe I need to explain exactly why I'm out here right now. But you see.. this is a NEW era! And everybody has talking about how this is an era of change.. and I'm out here to officially announce that tonight is the beginning of TITUS WORLDWIIIIIIIIIIIIDE!

    Titus speaks with fire as Heyman & Lesnar don't quite understand. Heyman speaks.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    Titus Worldwide? Very cute Titus.. now tell us- what in the world do you want?!

    Titus begins to smile as he speaks again.

    TITUS O'NEIL: What do I want? Let me start off by saying that I want- has nothing to do with you Paul! What I want... has EVERYTHING to do with YOUR client- The Beast himself... BROOOOCK LESNAAAR!

    The founder of the Titus Worldwide looks at Brock Lesnar- as Lesnar seems to be listening. The fans are still wondering what the hell is going on.

    TITUS O'NEIL:
    So Brock... I want you to hear me out. The TItus Brand is ready to takeover the WWE, and there isn't a superstar out there that matches your ability Brock! There isn't a man out there that has the aura that you do! So I came out here with a proposition that would change your life! A once in a lifetime opportunity. So Brock Lesnar- I'd like to offer you the chance of being MY client by joining TITUS WORLDWIIIIIIIIIIIDE!

    Titus drops the bombshell as the fans can be heard laughing. Some fans are even chanting 'YES' at the possibility of Brock joining the Titus Brand. Paul Heyman begins to laugh very loud, almost uncontrollably- as Titus gets serious. Brock just stands there, monotone- not knowing what to think.

    TITUS O'NEIL: What's so funny Paul? You see... when it comes to being an advocate for the best... it was you that everybody came to. Superstars were clamoring to be the next Paul Heyman Guy! But as I stated earlier.. this is an era of change. Being a Paul Heyman Guy simply ain't cool anymore! You wanna know what the new trend is? Joining Titus WORLDWIIIIIIDE and being a TITUS O'NEIL GUY! So Mr. Lesnar... what do you say?!

    O'Neil puts his arm out for Lesnar to shake- as O'Neil is clearly being very serious... but Paul Heyman himself, and some of the fans aren't taking O'Neil seriously at all. O'Neil is mouthing to Brock to 'once in a lifetime!' as Brock looks at his hand. 'YES!' chants can also be heard as Heyman speaks.

    PAUL HEYMAN: Look Titus... my client appreciates everything that you have to say about him- because you're right. There isn't a SINGLE superstar that matches the aura or the ability that my client possesses. So if he wants to join Titus Worldwide, then it's completely up to him. It's your choice Brock, do what is best for you.

    Heyman walks away, and exits the ring- still bursting in fits of laughter as he nods in disapproval. Meanwhile back in the ring, O'Neil still has his hand out. Lesnar looks to the crowd, and he nods in approval- before shaking O'Neil's hand... AND LIFTING O'NEIL UP TO HIS SHOULDERS...

    F5!! F5 TO TITUS O'NEIL! The fans are going crazy with cheers and boos as Lesnar DROPS Titus with his finisher... but Lesnar isn't finished! A rampant Lesnar picks O'Neil back up again, before turning him around... GERMAN SUPLEX!! Ranallo says that O'Neil is being taken all the way to Suplex City, as Lesnar lifts O'Neil up again... ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX!!

    The fans erupt in a 'SUPLEX CITY!' chant as Lesnar goes for another one... A THIRD GERMAN SUPLEX!! Lesnar gets off Titus, before screaming and holding his hands high up in the air- with Heyman looking on from the stage. Lesnar exits the ring, joining his advocate on the stage as Cole says that a message has been sent to not only Titus O'Neil, the fans- but to Randy Orton himself. THIS is what Brock Lesnar is capable of doing, and Orton should be cautious!

    Eva Marie makes her way down the ramp as Ranallo questions why Eva Marie is out here? However it's made clear as Eva walks past the ring and joins the trio on commentary. Graves welcomes Eva to the announcers table as he asks her what brings her here? Eva puts on a headset, before stating that she's scouting the Raw Womens division to see her opposition and what they can do.

    PARTY

    Alicia Fox's music hits as the fans respond with a light pop! Fox makes her way to the ring as Graves reminds us how Alicia Fox is a former Womens Champion- and she is a women who isn't finished and she still has plenty to prove in the Womens Evolution! Ranallo says that this next match should be great.

    SKY'S THE LIMIT

    Atlanta begins to cheer even louder for The Boss as Sasha Banks comes out to the stage! Banks begins to show off her 'LEGIT BOSS' ring before making her way to the squared-circle. Cole talks about how Sasha Banks feels that she is the top women of this division so this match will be the best way for The Boss to back up her statement. Eva Marie says that there is only one women who is at the top of this division- and that's All Red Everything.

    Banks enters the ring as Fox looks The Boss in the eye- not looking away. The two women continue to stare at each other until Sasha Banks puts her hand out- with Alicia Fox shaking to a nice pop from the fans. The bell eventually rings as the two women go one on one!


    Match 4. Alicia Fox vs. Sasha Banks

    Finish:
    The two women have wrestled in a fantastic match so far as they really have took each other to the limit to prove who deserves to be the face of the Womens division. The finish comes when Banks & Fox are both grappling, and Banks goes for a punch to the face of Fox but Fox grabs her arm before putting her own head under Banks' arm before lifting The Boss up... NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! The fans cheer but Fox isn't finished. She begins to hype herself up, before going for an Officer Nasty (Somersault Leg Drop)... but Banks manages to move out of the way as Fox crashes onto the canvas. Banks slowly picks herself back up as the fans cheer her on, and Banks eventually gets up. She picks up Fox as Fox has her back towards Banks... and Bank hits her with a Double Knee Backbreaker... before transitioning into the Bank Statement! Banks has the move locked in as Fox begins to scream in pain! Banks increases the pressure.. but the attention moves to the stage as we see two women coming out...

    Summer Rae & Alexa Bliss begin to make their way to the ring- stalking Banks & Fox whilst Banks still has the move locked in... but Banks looks over to see Rae & Bliss on the apron! They enter the ring as Banks immediately breaks the hold, and Banks charges at Rae with shots to the face- but Bliss intervenes as she grabs hold of Banks before throwing her onto the floor as the referee calls for the bell!


    Spoiler:

    WINNER VIA DQ: SASHA BANKS


    After the match, Summer Rae begins to beatdown on Sasha Banks as she is being absolutely relentless right now. On the other hand, Alicia Fox is laying on the canvas- and Alexa Bliss begins to erupt with vicious kicks to the face of Fox. Rae & Bliss continue their beatdown- as Eva Marie looks on from the commentary table, as she says that she's seen enough.

    Eva Marie takes off her headset- and rushes into the ring as she screams STOP! Rae & Bliss look on, not knowing what to think of this and the fans begin to boo very loudly as it looks as if Marie is sticking up for Sasha Banks & Alicia Fox... before a smirk occurs on the face of All Red Everything- and Marie unloads with elbows and punches to the face of Sasha Banks! The trio continue the attack until...


    YOU CAN LOOK BUT YOU CAN'T TOUCH



    NIKKI BELLA!! NIKKI BELLA IS HERE!! The fans go wild with as the former two time Divas Champion makes her return! Nikki Bella comes out- and stands on the stage with a face of determination as the trio of women in the ring stop their attack on Sasha Banks & Alicia Fox- and they turn to the stage. Bella walks down the ramp, and she enters the ring as the fans continue to cheer at the tension brewing in the ring.

    Summer Rae, Alexa Bliss & Eva Marie stare down Bella before a surprising move ensures as Eva Marie takes herself out of the equation by exiting the ring!! The fans boo loudly as Eva escapes from all the commotion with Rae & Bliss not looking too happy..

    But they turn their sights back onto Bella... and Rae steps up to Nikki. Nikki smirks towards Rae as Rae puts her hand out- seemingly a proposal for Nikki Bella to align with them as Nikki grabs Rae's hand... AND SHE HITS A SPINEBUSTER TO RAE!! The fans explode as Bliss then begins to attack Nikki- but this time- it's the heels that are outnumbered as Banks & Fox both slowly but surely get back up! Banks grabs Bliss from behind before spinning her around... ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO BLISS!! Banks hits a vicious kick to the face of Bliss to send her out of the ring as the fans continue to cheer.

    Nikki Bella, Sasha Banks & Alicia Fox all stand tall in the ring as Rae & Bliss back up to the stage. The faces then all look towards each other- clearly nodding at each other in respect. But on the other hand, Summer Rae & Alexa Bliss stand on the stage knowing they have been outclassed as it's game on. Ranallo points how all the women have their competitive faces on because they all know full well that it's every women for herself- and with the addition of Nikki Bella, the competition has just got a whole lot better!


    The camera heads to the announcers table as Cole says that up next, we have the WWE Tag Team Champions in The New Day LIVE on Monday Night Raw as the three men celebrate their historic reign as champions with the trio having held their titles for over 344 days!

    Big E:
    OOOHHHHH Atlanta, Georgiaaaaaaaaa...

    The fans respond with a mixed reaction.

    Big E: Don't you DARE be sour!

    Clap for your longest reigning Tag Team Champs...

    And feeeeeeeeeeel the POWWWAHHHHHHH!!

    NEW DAY, NEW WAY

    Atlanta bursts with loud cheers for the WWE World Tag Team Champions! The New Day come out to the stage, with Kofi Kingston, Big E & Xavier Woods dancing around the stage with balloons saying '344' in their hands- and the atmosphere in the Phillips Arena is very exciting tonight. The three men enter the ring as we see the ring decorated unicorn balloons as well as normal balloons.

    Each men have a mic in their hand, as they stand in the centre of the ring. The fans chant 'NEW DAY ROCKS!' very loudly as The New Day look absolutely delighted with the cheers.

    XAVIER WOODS:
    The past couple of weeks has been absolutely historic for The New Day- and it's a great feeling that we have come this far... and last week at Battleground- we had the most toughest match of our entire careers... as The New Day faced The Wyatt Family.

    I saw the real threat that The Wyatts posed, and I'm just proud of the fact that we made out of that match alive! And while we didn't walk out of that match with the pinfall... we walked out as different men! We didn't lose because The New Day are still standing in THIS very ring as your longest reigning...

    The New Day begin to shake their hips round and round as Woods continues.

    XAVIER WOODS:
    W... W... E.... World.... Tag... Team... CHAMPIOOOOOOOOONS!

    The fans explode with cheers as Big E begins to speak.

    BIG E: You know... 344 days is a very, VERY long time to held any sort of titles! 344 days ago... The New Day had a dream that Booty O's would go global... and today? We are proud to officially announce that Booty O's is now a breakfast cereal which you can pre-order now from the FYE stores!!

    Kofi cuts in.

    KOFI KINGSTON:
    Booty O's... They make sure you ain't BOOTY!!

    More cheers as Kofi continues to speak.

    KOFI KINGSTON: And following that brand extension- The New Day were the FIRST tag team to be drafted onto Monday Night Raw! We bring the power of positivity to Monday nights.. And we are honored to be representing the tag team division on WWE's flagship show... and speaking of tag team division- tonight? There will be a Tag Team Turmoil match with ALL the tag teams on the Raw division to determine our opponents for Summerslam.

    Now the real question is... WHO will face The New Day for the Tag Team Champions at the hottest party of the summer!


    The trio in the ring all begin to shout 'WHO' repeatedly as they then start to ponder the options.

    XAVIER WOODS: Firstly... we have The Spirit Squad!

    Kofi cuts in.

    KOFI KINGSTON: Ain't those the male CHEERLEADERS?!

    Big E: Look man... I don't know what planet Kenny & Mickey came from- but they bring the power of bad spirit to Raw whereas we bring the Power of Positivity! And I'm sure everyone in this arena can vouch for me when I say that The New Day are better dancers than The Spirit Squad!

    The New Day begin to twerk and shimmy as the fans cheer.

    KOFI KINGSTON:
    Their dancing ain't got nothing on us! We can rightfully declare that The Spirit Squad are in need of some cereal because they are BOOTY!!

    Loud 'BOO-TY!' chants as Woods cuts in.

    XAVIER WOODS: Secondly... we have a vicious tag team which proved last week that they are big... they are bad- and they're a dangerous force in this Tag Team division- Konnor & Viktor of The Ascension!

    BIG E: OH NO!

    The three men's serious faces are back on as Kofi speaks.

    KOFI KINGSTON: That's the worst possible scenario for us- but we need to get prepared for this guys! We already walked out of one battlefield and we wasn't the same.. and if we face The Ascension at Summerslam? We're gonna be taken to the dark side again.

    The three men look at each other in horror as Big E talks.

    BIG E: But how about the veterans of this division... Golden Truth! Two men who have had long careers in the WWE- and they also like to play plenty of Pokemon... just like us! The fact is.. The Golden Truth are too busy catching Pokemon's whilst The New Day are busy catching record.. and if the Golden Truth walk out of this match as winners... they'll be nothing more than the Team Rocket to our Ash & Pikachu!

    KOFI KINGSTON: I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE E!

    The trio look at each other in amusement as fans cheer at the mention of Pokemon characters.

    XAVIER WOODS: And then we got Breezango... the funny thing is- A LOT of people have been wondering WHY they were just not called FeBreeze? Well I got the answer for you.. febreeze is an air conditioner whereas Tyler Breeze & Fandango are too busy polluting arenas with their repulsive hairspray!

    BIG E: Man... they use a LOT OF hair products! Breezango are two narcissists, whereas another team- The Lucha Dragons are the completely opposite! Kalisto & Sin Cara are two men that are shrouded in mystery.. there ain't a lot we know about them- maybe apart from the fact that they like to fly!

    KOFI KINGSTON:
    We can't be dismissing these teams man.. you never know WHO will win this tournament which brings me to two of the top tag teams in the WWE today...

    More 'WHO' chants from the fans as Kofi smiles and continues.

    KOFI KINGSTON:
    How about American Alpha?! They are fresh out of NXT.. and they came to Monday Night Raw to make an impact- and they certainly did that with their explosive victory against The Spirit Squad! We can't be overlooking these diamonds.. they're the future of this tag team division!

    Big E continues.

    BIG E: And last but definitely not least... we have The USOOOOOOOS!

    Mixed reaction for The Usos- with mostly cheers.

    BIG E: They are TWO time tag team champions- just like us! The New Day have had some of the best matches of our careers with The Usos... but damn! They looked better with the face paint, didn't they?

    Woods looks at Big E in confusion before he takes over.

    XAVIER WOODS: I think what Big E is trying to say is... that The Usos are a huge threat in this match. They haven't been on form recently.. but that may all change tonight. But it doesn't matter WHO wins tonight... because at Summerslam? We will welcome our opponents with The New Day at their very best- and the challenge will be ON because...

    ALL: NEW! DAY ROCKS!

    The fans begin to chant New Day Rocks along with the trio in the ring as The New Day's celebration is over! The New Day exit the ring, and they join Ranallo, Graves & Cole on commentary as they are looking to watch the Tag Team Turmoil.

    WHAT'S UP

    The music of R-Truth blares on the sound system as Truth comes out to the stage with a mic- rapping for the WWE Universe! He waits on the stage for his partner...

    GOLD-LUST

    The fans cheer loudly as Goldust comes out to join his partner! Golden Truth make their way to the ring as the first participants of this Tag Team Turmoil. The two men enter the ring as we see who the second set of participants are...

    REBELLION

    Atlanta begins to boo as The Ascension come out to the stage! Konnor & Viktor looking as devastating as ever, make their way to the ring eyeing up Golden Truth. Ranallo talks about how The Ascension defeated Golden Truth last week in a match- before brutally attacking them with serious force. Woods says that he understands that Golden Truth are seeking revenge tonight due to The Ascension's actions- and Cole states that we kick the Tag Team Turmoil off with these two teams, right after we head to a commercial break!

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The camera cuts back to the ring as we see Golden Truth & The Ascension ready to kick this match off!

    Match 5. Tag Team Turmoil Match- Winners challenge The New Day for the WWE Tag Team Championships at Summerslam

    1: Golden Truth vs. The Ascension

    Finish:The Ascension & Golden Truth both had heat from last week- which was evident here tonight as Goldust & R-Truth turned up their tune of aggression as they looked to gain a bit of redemption from last week. The finish came when R-Truth & Konnor are the legal men. Truth is on the turnbuckle as he jumps off on Konnor to strike with a Dropkick but Konnor hits a Big Boot to a flying Truth! Konnor runs to the other side to knock Goldust off the apron, before tagging in Viktor. Viktor enters the ring- before picking Truth up... and The Ascension BLAST Truth with a Fall of a Man! Viktor goes for the cover as the referee counts 3!

    //GOLDEN TRUTH ARE ELIMINATED//

    The Ascension then kick Golden Truth out of the ring as the fans begin to boo them loudly. Konnor & Viktor await the next tag team that they are looking to go through...

    TEAM SPIRIT

    The Spirit Squad come out to boos from the fans. Kenny & Mickey make their way to the ring as Big E plays down The Spirit Squad's chances of hanging with The Ascension let alone winning the whole match.

    2: The Spirit Squad vs. The Ascension

    Finish:
    The Spirit Squad do attempt to put up a fight- but it just isn't enough! After 2 minutes of The Ascension absolutely dominating, with Konnor & Mickey are the legal men- Konnor hits Mickey with the Full Nelson Slam!! Konnor covers Mickey as The Ascension eliminate another tag team!

    //SPIRIT SQUAD ARE ELIMINATED//

    After gaining their second elimination, The Ascension begin to smirk in the ring- showing just how cocky and confident they are. They begin to shout 'YAH!' loudly as the next tag team's music hits...

    LUCHA, LUCHA

    The fans cheer loudly for the music of The Lucha Dragons as Kalisto & Sin Cara come out! The mysterious duo make their way to the ring doing their 'LU-CHA!' chant as the fans join along. Woods says that he sees The Lucha Dragons giving The Ascension a run for their money!

    3: Lucha Dragons vs. The Ascension

    Finish:
    Fatigue begun to kick in for The Ascension- but they weren't finished just yet. The Ascension played the aggressors in this round as Lucha Dragons have been very resilient in their quest to go to Summerslam. Back to the action, the legal men are Kalisto & Konnor. Konnor goes for a Big Boot to the face of Kalisto but Kalisto dodges it! Kalisto then springboards himself from the ropes onto Konnor but Konnor sees it coming and converts it into a Powerslam!! Konnor runs over to Sin Cara and knocks him off the apron! Konnor turns back to Viktor- before calling him over as Viktor enters the ring. The Ascension set Kalisto up for the finisher as they look to hit The Fall of Man for the second time tonight... but as the two men run- Kalisto quickly manages to move out of the way, as The Ascension manage to avoid hitting each other. Viktor turns around to a Huricanrana from Kalisto as Viktor goes crashing to the ground! Konnor charges at Kalisto with a Clothesline but Kalisto ducks the move... before Kalisto rolls Konnor up into the small package... AND LUCHA DRAGONS ELIMINATE THE ASCENSION!!

    //THE ASCENSION ARE ELIMINATED//

    The fans are going absolutely nuts as Lucha Dragons have pulled off the upset elimination! Atlanta erupt into a 'LU-CHA!' chant again as the noise can be heard very clear, and Kalisto is in absolute shock- just as The Ascension are! The Ascension can't believe what's happened- as Sin Cara gets back up and joins Kalisto in the ring. The Lucha Dragons wait for the next competitors...

    BUT THE ASCENSION ATTACK THE LUCHA DRAGONS! Kingston shouts that The Ascension are sore losers as Konnor & Viktor go absolutely insane on the masked duo! They are clearly in fury over being eliminated by Lucha Dragons as they continue to pummel Lucha Dragons. Viktor gets up on the top rope as Konnor lifts Sin Cara up for him... and Viktor FLIES with a Diving Knee Strike onto Sin Cara as fans boo!

    And after this, Konnor picks up Kalisto as Viktor also stalks Kalisto... FALL OF MAN TO KALISTO!! The Ascension have attacked Lucha Dragons to the point where they can't even stand up, as Konnor & Viktor exit the ring- showing no remorse over their actions as they head to the back. Referees attend to Lucha Dragons in the ring...

    #MMMGORGEOUS

    The music of Tyler Breeze hits as a vain Breeze comes out with selfie stick in hand- casually taking selfies before waiting for his partner...

    CHA-CHA-LA-LA

    And out comes Fandango to join his partner on the stage! Breezango begin to make their way to the ring nonchalantly- not bothered one bit by Kalisto & Sin Cara's conditions. The two men enter the ring as they wait for the referee to call for the bell- but the referee is refusing to allow The Lucha Dragons to continue. Big E says that he doesn't think Lucha Dragons can continue this match.

    However, Kalisto & Sin Cara slowly help each other by getting back up as they are refusing to back down! They can be heard pleading to the referees to let them fight, and the referee is hesitant at first... but he eventually gives in to their requests! The referee calls for the bell as this next round is on!


    4: Breezango vs. Lucha Dragons

    Finish: Kalisto & Breeze are the legal men as this next one begins- but Fandango jumps out of the apron, and creeps up behind Sin Cara before laying him out with a Russian Legsweet! On the other hand... Breeze HITS KALISTO WITH A BEAUTY SHOT!! Breeze goes for the cover- and this is a quick one as Kalisto & Sin Cara are eliminated!

    //LUCHA DRAGONS ARE ELIMINATED//

    Kofi Kingston plays up the determination of The Lucha Dragons- who had this round stolen from them following The Ascension's attack, but they still wanted to fight despite all that. The Lucha Dragons have earned The New Day's respect. Breezango wait for their opponents as Kalisto & Sin Cara make their way to the back after a valiant effort...

    ELITE

    The fans pop loudly as American Alpha's music blasts on the speaker system! Chad Gable & Jason Jordan come out- as both men show off their Ready, Willing & Gable rally towels before entering the ring. Woods says that these are two teams with different qualities- and we're going to see who the better men are right now!

    5: American Alpha vs. Breezango

    Finish: The fans are fully behind American Alpha as both teams have put it all on the line to advance to the sixth round. Breezango have resorted to using sly tactics to prevent elimination. Back to the action, Gable & Breeze are the legal men. Breeze goes for a Beauty Shot to the face of Gable but Gable grabs Breeze's leg... before putting Breeze in the Ankle Lock!! Gable has Breeze locked in as he increases the pressure- and Fandango enters the ring to break the hold but Jordan rushes in, and knocks Fandango out of the ring. Gable tightens the hold as Breeze screams... and Prince Pretty has no choice but to tap!!

    //BREEZANGO ARE ELIMINATED//

    American Alpha celebrate their victory- as Cole says that it's time for the last tag team to enter the Turmoil! Big E says that this is about to get very interesting...

    SO CLOSE NOW

    It's The Usos! Ranallo hypes this up as the clash that was brewing earlier from backstage as The Usos make their way to the ring. Cole states that The Usos & American Alpha are looking to shut each other up- as Graves sees The Usos coming out as victors in this match! Kofi Kingston says that he's not sure who will come out on top- as Woods & Big E agree with Kingston.

    6: The Usos vs. American Alpha

    Finish:
    Throughout this bout, we've seen The Usos target Gable on his own- as they have tagged each other in before attacking Gable to prevent Gable from getting the tag into his partner. The finish comes when things start to get back and forth. Jey Uso grabs Gable, and throws him onto the turnbuckle before charging at Gable- and going for a Stinger Splash as he connects! A dizzy Gable stumbles to the centre of the ring- as Jey Uso goes to nail a Superkick- but GABLE DUCKS!! And Gable leaps over to his partner... AND HE TAGS IN JORDAN!! The fans are going nuts for the hot tag as Jordan rushes into the ring. Jey Uso runs towards Jordan but Jordan grabs Jey Uso... CAPTURE SUPLEX!! The fans cheer as Jimmy Uso enters the ring- and he tries to get one up on American Alpha by grabbing Jordan... before Jordan hits ANOTHER Capture Suplex!! Jordan gets up, and removes his straps as he gets the fans hyped up!! Jordan tags in Gable, as Gable enters the ring. Jordan lifts Jey Uso up before lifting him in position to finish him off as Gable gets in the sequence... GRAND AMPLITUDE!! The fans go wild as Gable goes for the cover... AND AMERICAN ALPHA ARE GOING TO SUMMERSLAM!!

    //THE USOS ARE ELIMINATED//

    Spoiler:

    WINNERS: AMERICAN ALPHA


    The atmosphere in The Phillips Arena tonight is absolutely ecstatic as the fans cheer on American Alpha's huge win! Chad Gable & Jason Jordan begin to celebrate their victory as The Usos are sitting outside the ring- knowing that they have been defeated.

    Ranallo asks for The New Day's reaction to American Alpha winning- as Xavier Woods says that American Alpha are a huge threat to their WWE Tag Team Champions, and they have the utmost respect for Gable & Jordan. Big E says that we're not looking to lose these titles any titles any soon, as The New Day then take their headsets off. The New Day walk to the stage before Big E & Woods raise their titles in the air, with American Alpha looking on.

    Gable & Jordan motion that they are going be the new champions at Summerslam- as Graves says that it will be American Alpha vs. The New Day for the WWE Tag Team Championships at the hottest party of the summer!

    The camera cuts back to the announcers table as Cole talks about how last week- we had a scheduled match on Raw which was cancelled as Heath Slater interrupted the show. Ranallo says that Slater wasn't drafted to Raw or Smackdown, and he labels himself as the Hottest Free Agent in Sports Entertainment today- here's what transpired last week. A video clip shows the segment with Slater as he wanted a contract for Raw, but he was interrupted by Stephanie McMahon- who said that Slater would have to earn it in a match against his friend Bo Dallas. This led to Dallas defeating Slater after using the ropes for leverage, to prevent Slater from signing to Raw. We go back to the trio, as Ranallo says that he feels Slater has so much more to prove in the WWE- but Graves dismisses Slater, and says that Raw is doing just fine without... therefore Raw doesn't need Heath Slater! The fans can be heard chanting 'SIGN HEATH SLATER!' as the chants get louder and louder, and we head to another break.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    A video package begins to play. A clip shows John Cena making his return to the WWE on an episode of Monday Night Raw. We see Cena announcing to the world that if the future is upon us- the future damn sure must go through him because he's the face that runs the place. We then see Cena speaking to the camera.

    JOHN CENA:
    When I made my return to the ring- the WWE ushered into a new era which means that there are new superstars ready to go to the top. I have a lot of respect for the talent in the industry- but I had to make it clear that if they wanted to be at the top? They would have to fight The Franchise of this company and earn their spot.

    The clip then shows AJ Styles interrupting John Cena, welcoming Cena back- before Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson of The Bullet Club came to the ring looking for a fight. We then see Styles shockingly attacking Cena before the rest of The Bullet Club began to join in.

    JOHN CENA:
    I'm not angry about The Bullet Club targeting me because I made my intentions very clear- and AJ Styles was the first man to respond to my announcement. The Bullet Club aren't a joke either, because they have dominated Japan and they have won titles all over the world- but the difference between them and me? Is that they haven't dominated the WWE like I have.

    We see clips of The Bullet Club being a dominant force in NJPW before it then shows John Cena & AJ Styles going back and forth in a wrestling match at the MITB PPV. Gallows & Anderson interfered in the match whilst the referee was down- allowing AJ Styles to take advantage of the distraction and gain the pinfall.

    JOHN CENA:
    Money in the Bank should have been a spectacle. It was the first ever time that John Cena was going one on one with AJ Styles- but it ended up being a disappointment for me because AJ Styles had to get Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson involved in order to win. A a potential show stealer was ruined- and at that point? I knew I had to get back up.

    We then see The Bullet Club attacking John Cena yet again before Enzo Amore & Big Cass made the save- with the three men standing tall. And then we move onto Battleground- as we see John Cena, Enzo Amore & Big Cass defeating The Bullet Club after Cena pins Styles.

    JOHN CENA:
    I wish Enzo Amore & Big Cass the best of luck on Smackdown. Funnily enough, AJ Styles was also drafted to Smackdown- but I just couldn't let my grudge against The Phenomenal One go.

    The clip shows John Cena claiming that he isn't finished with AJ Styles- before challenging AJ Styles to a match for Summerslam. We then see AJ Styles accepting the challenge on Smackdown.

    JOHN CENA:
    The rematch will happen between John Cena & AJ Styles at Summerslam. We will battle one last time. We have both pinned each other once- and we will settle things at the Hottest Party of the Summer. But the problem is... I don't see this being a fair match at all. I think... no... I KNOW that The Bullet Club are just going to get involved again- and AJ will be unable to prove that he can hang on the big leagues on his own.

    We see clips of John Cena nailing Attitude Adjustment's on superstars and winning multiple titles in the WWE- before clips of AJ Styles hitting opponents with the Styles Clash are shown, as well as AJ Styles winning titles all over the world.

    JOHN CENA: I need to know exactly who The Phenomenal is, so AJ, are you finally going to leave The Bullet Club at home and fight on your own like a man, or are they gonna fight your battles for you? AJ needs to prove why he isn't just another addition to fill up the rosters- the real question is if AJ Styles is a man or a mouse? I'mma leave that for Mr. Phenomenal to decide because it's in AJ Styles' hands now.

    The video package ends with a clip of AJ Styles standing tall over Cena at MITB- as well as Enzo, Big Cass & Cena standing tall in victory over The Bullet Club at Summerslam. A graphic of John Cena vs. AJ Styles II is then shown on a Summerslam background.

    We go back to the announcers table as Ranallo talks about how John Cena had very strong and passionate words for AJ Styles as he posed the question- is AJ Styles going to leave The Bullet Club at home on Summerslam, or is AJ going to fight on his own? Graves says that AJ Styles will have to decide that on Smackdown- but if AJ goes up against Cena on his own, he can see John Cena vs. AJ Styles II stealing the show. Cole moves on, and he says that it's time for our main event! We will see The Celtic Warrior in Sheamus go one on one with the WWE Champion- Dean Ambrose in what should be a hard-hitting match!

    HELLFIRE

    The lights go out as the fans start to boo loudly- knowing exactly who is about to come out. The Celtic Warrior can be seen on the stage- with the spotlight on him before he turns around. Sheamus makes his way to the ring for the main event as Graves says that Sheamus took the loss last week in the Fatal Four Way match- but there's no doubt Sheamus is looking to gain a victory here tonight to get back into the main event picture- and a win over the world champion would be huge! The fans begin to chant 'You Look Stupid!' as Sheamus waits for his opponent.

    RETALIATION

    WWE Champion comes out to a roar of cheers from the Atlanta crowd as The Lunatic Fringe is here! Dean Ambrose comes out with a serious look on his face, as he clearly looks ready for action- and the champ makes his way to the ring. Ranallo talks about how Ambrose won The Shield Triple Threat Match at Battleground- and Ambrose looks to continue his momentum as the WWE Champion by defeating Sheamus here tonight. Ranallo states that this match is going to be very fiery and intense! The two superstars are in the ring- as the referee calls for the bell!

    Main Event: Sheamus vs. Dean Ambrose

    Finish: This match has been very hard hitting and brutal as Sheamus & Ambrose have hit an extreme amount of offense on each other- with both men looking to seal a win tonight. The finish comes when Sheamus has Ambrose trapped in between the ropes. Sheamus then delivers the Beats of the Bodhran as he begins to repeatedly nail Ambrose's chest with multiple forearm shots. Sheamus eventually backs off as the referee gets involved, and Sheamus grabs Ambrose by hair before dragging him to the centre of the ring.

    Sheamus lifts Ambrose up, and puts him in position for a White Noise but just as The Celtic Warrior is set to hit it- Ambrose is one step ahead of him as the WWE Champion then clings onto the ropes! Sheamus is unable to hit the move, therefore he has to let go off Ambrose. But Sheamus wastes no time- as he grabs Ambrose to pick him up. Sheamus gets on top of the turnbuckle, before using his strength to take Ambrose up with him. Ranallo says that this is a risky move for both men as they both begin to trade shots.

    Sheamus
    Ambrose
    Ambrose
    Sheamus

    Sheamus goes for another shot but Ambrose manages to dodge it- before Ambrose is able to grab hold of Sheamus' head. The fans begin to go silent in anticipation as Ambrose lifts himself up onto the top turnbuckle
    with Sheamus- and he launches...



    SUPER-PLEX TO SHEAMUS!! Atlanta cheers loudly as the effect of the move could be heard all around the world! The two men crash on the canvas, with Sheamus getting the worst of it- and Ambrose crawls over to Sheamus before draping an arm over him. 1... 2... BUT SHEAMUS KICKS OUT!

    Ambrose has no time to react, as he immediately begins to start crawling over to the corner. He uses the ropes to lift himself back up- as he gets back on the top rope again with Sheamus stirring in the ring. Ambrose begins to point to Sheamus, which leads to the fans cheering as Ambrose launches again with a Diving Elbow Drop... BUT SHEAMUS MOVES OUT OF THE WAY!!

    The Lunatic Fringe crashes on the canvas as the fans boo loudly- and Sheamus manages to slowly pick himself back up as he motions that he's going to finish Dean Ambrose off. Sheamus begins to kick the ground, as he's ready- and Ambrose is also slowly getting back to his feet. Ambrose eventually gets up, and he turns around not knowing what his fate holds as Sheamus goes for a Brogue Kick...

    But Ambrose sees it coming and he dodges it as Sheamus kicks the air! The two men turn back around, as Ambrose goes for a shot to the face of Sheamus- but Sheamus grabs Ambrose's arm... before he lifts Ambrose up... WHITE NOISE TO AMBROSE!! Cole questions whether this one is over- as Sheamus goes for the cover. 1... 2... BUT AMBROSE KICKS OUT!!

    The fans cheer loudly as Ambrose refuses to give in. Sheamus has a look of anger and disbelief in his face as he knows exactly what is next, and the trio on commentary do too as Sheamus looks to finish Ambrose off for real this time. Sheamus walks to the corner before lining Ambrose up again- as he looks like a predator ready to pounce on his prey. Graves says that Sheamus missed the first attempt- but he looks to redeem himself. Ambrose gets up with his head towards Sheamus... and Sheamus charges at Ambrose to finish him...

    BUT AMBROSE GRABS SHEAMUS' FOOT! Ambrose sees the Brogue Kick coming as Ambrose drops Sheamus' foot to the ground before he kicks Sheamus in the mid-section. Ambrose bends Sheamus' head forward and hooks Sheamus' arms behind his head...



    DIRTY DEEDS TO SHEAMUS!! The fans go nuts as Sheamus' head hits VERY hard on the canvas- and Ambrose immediately goes for the cover as he seems to have this match in the bag. 1!.. 2!.. 3!... AND AMBROSE GETS THE WIN!


    Spoiler:

    WINNER: DEAN AMBROSE


    Dean Ambrose celebrates his huge victory over Sheamus as the referee raises Ambrose's hand high up in the air. Ambrose walks over to the other side as he asks for his title- whilst Sheamus rolls out of the ring, not happy with his loss. Ambrose is also given a mic as Ambrose doesn't look happy.

    DEAN AMBROSE:
    CUT THE DAMN MUSIC!

    Ambrose's music is eventually cut off, as Ambrose continues to speak.

    DEAN AMBROSE: You know... earlier on tonight- my opponent for Summerslam... my BROTHER Roman Reigns- he had A LOT to say about me. He said a lot of things that we all know he wouldn't have the balls to say to my face... well Roman Reigns- this is my message to you! You come out here- and you talk about how you own this yard... well maybe you should focus on running this yard instead of running your mouth!

    Fans cheer loudly in agreement.

    DEAN AMBROSE: Roman... you spoke about how you was drafted before me on Raw- and I'm not going to sit here and disagree with you. The fact remains... it is what it is. You was drafted at #1 whilst I was drafted at #2... but the draft lottery is nothing but bull-*bleep* to me because EVERYBODY knows that Dean Ambrose is the man around here!

    More cheers as the fans begin a 'Let's go Ambrose' chant.

    DEAN AMBROSE: And why exactly did you decide to berate me earlier? It was because I waved my title around your face.. the same title that you've held more than me. You spoke about how I was the man you defeated to win your very first WWE Championship- and while that's true... we all know how that title reign turned out because the last time I checked- Roman Reigns' first ever title reign lasted the grand total of... FIVE MINUTES!

    Ambrose continues as The Lunatic Fringe is fired up.

    DEAN AMBROSE: I didn't have any intentions to show disrespect to you.. but you're playing with fire Roman. And since you started to disrespect me for no reason- I'm just gonna have to turn this fire up a notch because I can assure you that you're gonna get burned. You're meant to be my brother.. but after listening to everything you had to say earlier? Maybe I should start calling you my sister instead because you're acting like a big Samoan bitch!

    The crowd explodes with another frenzy of cheers as Ambrose isn't done.

    DEAN AMBROSE:
    So let me make this very clear to you Roman... you really wanted to play these games huh? You wanted to go this far with me? Then so be it because I'm not playing around anymore. You've pinned me before when you won your first WWE title... and I pinned you at The Shield Triple Threat Match- so from the way I see things? This rivalry between two brothers has only just begun... and at Summerslam? I'm not looking to just beat you brother... I'm looking to obliterate you to retain MY WWE Championship because I am The Kingpin of the WWE- and I RUN THIS SHOW!!

    Ambrose drops the mic after a tense promo- with the fans cheering at Ambrose's words. Ranallo talks about how Ambrose said it himself.. this rivalry between two brothers is only just about to start. Ambrose raises his title in the air before...

    AMBROSE IS ATTACKED!! The fans boo loudly- as Sheamus comes out of nowhere and begins to explode with an onslaught of offense on The Lunatic Fringe! Graves says that Sheamus clearly looks angry and in rage after losing to Ambrose- and he looks to take all his anger out on the winner! Sheamus continues to pound on Ambrose until...

    THE TRUTH REIGNS

    ROMAN REIGNS IS HERE!! Atlanta erupts in mixed reactions- with mostly boos for The Big Dog as Reigns rushes down the ramp and enters the ring to make the save! Sheamus puts his attention onto Reigns, the same man who pinned him last week- as Sheamus gets away from Ambrose and gets up on his face. The Celtic Warrior & The Big Dog stare off before the two men begin to brawl! Reigns & Sheamus begin to trade shots...

    Reigns
    Sheamus
    Sheamus
    Reigns

    Sheamus goes for another shot but he misses as Reigns runs to the other side. The two men turn around as Reigns charges at Sheamus...

    SUPERMAN PUNCH TO SHEAMUS!! Reigns knocks Sheamus out on the canvas as The Celtic Warrior is down. Sheamus has no choice but to roll out of the ring- leaving Reigns & Ambrose together! Reigns looks down on Ambrose who is on the floor, as Ambrose looks back at Reigns- and The Lunatic Fringe begins to get back to his feet.

    The two men continue to stare deviously at each other, as the fans begin to cheer due to the tension in the ring! Reigns nods at what Ambrose had to say- but he doesn't look too fazed by it, as Reigns puts his hand out for Ambrose to shake. Ambrose looks at Reigns' hand- as the fans explode with mixed reactions of 'YES!' and 'NO!' chants with Ambrose looking to the crowd to help his decision.

    But the reactions are still mixed as ever as Ambrose turns back to Reigns. Ambrose nods in approval, as he goes to shake Reigns' head... but AMBROSE WAVES HIS HAND AWAY!! The fans shout 'OOOOHHHH' as Reigns has just been humiliated by the WWE Champion! Ambrose grabs his WWE Championship, and he exits the ring with Reigns looking- not looking impressed at all. Ambrose walks to the stage, before turning around- and raising his title with a bitter looking Reigns standing back in the ring- looking on at his opponent for Summerslam as the show closes.

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



    Episode One - 1/8/16 - Atlanta, Georgia

    The cameras cut to the location of Raw Talk as we see Charly Caruso & Daniel Bryan sitting on chairs behind a table- with a 'RAW TALK' graphic on the background.

    CHARLY CARUSO: Hello everyone- and welcome to the Raw's first ever edition of Raw Talk! This talk show will commence every fortnight from tonight exclusively on the WWE Network! Daniel- tonight's Raw was absolutely exhilarating wasn't it?

    DANIEL BRYAN: I agree Charly- it went absolutely great. We had the rivalry between Brock Lesnar & Randy Orton get even more personal tonight when Paul Heyman was being Paul Heyman- and he proceeded to rip on Orton. We had Nikki Bella's huge return, and the Intercontinental Championship title scene just got heated up.

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    Speaking of the Intercontinental title, earlier tonight- you made the huge announcement that Cesaro vs. The Miz would be a Last Chance Match at Summerslam, with the stipulation applying to both men. In my eyes, this was very big because it got the entire world buzzing on social media. What exactly was the thinking behind that stipulation?

    DANIEL BRYAN: Well to put it quite simply, before the brand extension- we had seen multiple matches between Cesaro & The Miz. This rivalry has gone on for a long time now, so I thought Summerslam would be the perfect place for the feud to come to an end. A Last Chance stipulation ups the stakes for an explosive title match, and it should motivate each guy more to give the best fight possible knowing they won't get a rematch.

    CHARLY CARUSO: That's fair enough Daniel- I agree that this stipulation will make the title match even more explosive. I mean, what The Miz had to say out there about Cesaro was very brutal. This wasn't the first time that Cesaro has been doubted... and almost singled out by people in the wrestling world.

    DANIEL BRYAN: The thing is with Cesaro, is that there is a thought that he doesn't connect with the WWE Universe- and I really don't agree. Cesaro is one of the best wrestlers we have on the roster today, and he brings a new level of excitement and brutality into the ring that we haven't seen before from anybody else.

    CHARLY CARUSO: I think that Cesaro is very underrated, and he looks set to prove his doubters wrong at Summerslam. Moving on, we have our first guest on Raw Talk tonight. Ladies and gentleman, we have the WWE Champion- Dean Ambrose!

    The camera zooms out to reveal Dean Ambrose walking over to the set. The WWE Champion puts his belt on the table, before grabbing the chair- and sitting down with Caruso & Bryan looking on. Ambrose nods at Caruso & Bryan as Bryan speaks.

    DANIEL BRYAN:
    Welcome to Raw Talk champ. That was a great match between you & Sheamus. You both beat the hell out of each other, and I'm loving the level of physicality that you're bringing to Raw.

    DEAN AMBROSE: Well, you know me Daniel. I'm not a man that shies away from being physical, which Roman Reigns will find out at Summerslam.

    CHARLY CARUSO: It's great to have the world champion here on Raw Talk- and as you mentioned Roman Reigns.. I can't get out of my mind about the recent problems you are having with The Big Dog. Tension is brewing, and it just seems as if this rivalry is going to explode any minute- especially after you refused to shake Roman's hand.

    DEAN AMBROSE: Look.. I'm going to say this right here and right now- I'm not the man with a problem here. After everything that Reigns accused me of tonight of apparently disrespecting him.. I didn't wave my hand away because I don't like Roman... me & him are brothers. I love Roman because he's my best friend.. but I simply had to go out there and show him exactly what disrespect meant. Waving a title in the air isn't shoving it in anybody's face- because this title proves that I am the man around here.

    DANIEL BRYAN: There's no denying that when it comes to the WWE title, of course tension will brew. The WWE Championship is the most prestigious prize in the WWE today- and I'm loving this rivalry between yourself & Roman Reigns. It's almost friendly and serious at the same time.

    DEAN AMBROSE: I'm glad you're loving it Daniel.. I mean- I wish I could say that about your draft choices, but that's not really the case. After all man, despite the fact that I hold the most prestigious prize in the WWE- that doesn't warrant #1 draft pick, does it now?

    The look of shock appears on the faces of Caruso & Bryan as they really can't believe Ambrose just said that. Ambrose looks on nonchalantly, as Bryan responds.

    DANIEL BRYAN: Look Dean, I didn't know you was going to bring this up- but let's get this cleared up, shall we? The decision to have Roman Reigns as the #1 draft pick was a compromise between myself & Stephanie McMahon...

    DEAN AMBROSE:
    Compromise my ass. I mean, what Roman had to say out there annoyed me- but I'm not gonna sit here and deny it because it's the truth. I am your WWE Champion- and yet Roman was picked before me. Not even Smackdown picked me as their #1 draft pick.

    CHARLY CARUSO: So what exactly is your mind-set on that subject Dean? Do you feel like you're being doubted as a champion?

    DEAN AMBROSE:
    I know the way I won the championship may have been a bit controversial- but I don't give a damn. I had to give Seth Rollins a taste of his own medicine, so the fact that I basically stuck my middle finger up to Rollins was one of the best moments of my career. I don't think that I'm being doubted as champion.. from what I got from this whole situation is that Roman Reigns was being backed by Daniel & Stephanie to win The Shield Triple Threat Match... but he didn't because I won in what was the hardest match of my career in the WWE.

    DANIEL BRYAN: If it makes you feel better Dean- my decision for the #1 draft pick would've been you. Me and you have history from our independent wrestling days, and I know everything that you're capable of. But like I said, me & Stephanie had to compromise. On the other hand, considering the issues that you are having with your brother- I'd like to make a Tag Team match for the main event of next week's Raw! Let's test where your friendship with Roman really stands because I want to see you guys work well together again like you used to. So next week, it will be Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose against the devastating duo of The Ascension- how about that?

    DEAN AMBROSE: Sounds perfect to me. As we head into Summerslam, I don't wanna be all 'Anti-Roman Reigns' so maybe a tag team match will be good for our relationship. I've said all that I've had to say- I'm out of here.

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    Thank you for your time Dean, it was a pleasure speaking to you.

    Ambrose nods at Caruso. Ambrose gets up from his seat, and picks up the WWE Championship from the table before walking away from the set as the camera heads back to Bryan & Caruso.

    CHARLY CARUSO: A big announcement made from Daniel Bryan for next week's Raw as we will see the WWE Champion team up with his opponent for Summerslam- as the brothers Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose take on The Ascension! Daniel, The Ascension have been on a ruthless run so far since the draft as they have decimated Lucha Dragons & Golden Truth.. do you think The Ascension will rise?

    DANIEL BRYAN: There's no doubt about it. At one point in NXT- where The Ascension came from, they were running things over there. They were the most dangerous tag team, and they went on a huge undefeated streak as well as being the longest reigning NXT Tag Team Champions. I don't agree with many of Konnor & Viktor's actions.. but you can't deny that they have recaptured that same magic that made them so dominant on NXT into Monday nights.

    CHARLY CARUSO: I think that The Ascension are a tag team to look out for. Another tag team that I think are definitely on the rise are American Alpha! They came onto Raw with a win over Spirit Squad, and now they are already challenging for the WWE Tag Team Championships against The New Day at Summerslam.

    DANIEL BRYAN: I agree Charly- American Alpha are a very unique tag team. I think that they have the most chemistry out of all the tag teams on not just Raw, but WWE as a whole. Maybe The Usos give them a little competition.. I mean, they are twin brothers after all.

    CHARLY CARUSO: That's a very good point Daniel. The Usos are two time tag team champions, and they must be disappointed after missing out on the opportunity to be in the title match Summerslam. I think that The New Day vs. American Alpha is going to be a show stealer, and it will definitely attract more eyes to American Alpha. But can they win the titles on their very first PPV appearance, that's the real question!

    As Caruso goes to continue talking- the camera zooms out to reveal that someone has interrupted the set. That someone is none other than The Human Wrecking Ball in Ryback as Bryan & Caruso look on.

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    Ladies and gentleman, we have Ryback!

    Ryback has a headset on as he looks very, very angry- and he looks towards Bryan before speaking.

    RYBACK:
    Well obviously Charly, it's me... it's The Big Guy- who else would it be?! Now.. I'm not gonna be on here and sugarcoat anything- but I want to know why I wasn't on the show tonight? And yet we had irrelevant superstars like Dolph Ziggler... Sami Zayn... hell we even had Darren Young on the show tonight! Those embarrassing cheerleaders even managed to get a spot on the show.. but there still wasn't no room for me?

    DANIEL BRYAN: Ryback- I'm going to say this to you right now. If we could include ALL the superstars from the Raw roster on the show.. then we most certainly would- but there's simply not enough space to feature everyone.

    RYBACK:
    Not enough space to feature everyone? Hahahaha... are you kidding me?! Raw is a 3 HOUR SHOW. There's plenty of time to involve somebody of my caliber. The truth is.. I'm not happy about tonight's show- and there NEEDS to be a change around here. I'm a very hungry man.. and I need feeding. Ever since I lost the Intercontinental Championship last year- I haven't had a lot of success... so you're going to give me an opportunity to prove myself Daniel.. and you're going to give it to me now. I'm not leaving until I KNOW I have something for next week.

    DANIEL BRYAN:
    First of all Ryback- you don't just burst onto the set of Raw Talk and ASK for an opportunity. You have to EARN them- and the last time I gave you an opportunity to earn a WWE Championship title shot- you squandered that.. so what do you want me to do? What exactly have you done recently that warrants for you to ask for a big opportunity?

    RYBACK: You think I asked you? No Daniel... hell no. I'm TELLING you. You give me an opportunity for next week right now... or I PROMISE you...

    But as Ryback goes to finish speaking- there is yet ANOTHER interruption on Raw Talk as The One Man Band is here! Heath Slater bursts onto the set from out of nowhere, as Bryan, Ryback & Caruso turn to Slater- with Bryan looking confused.

    DANIEL BRYAN: Heath Slater? How the hell did you get on here? You shouldn't even...

    HEATH SLATER: I know what you're gonna say Daniel.. I shouldn't be here. I'm not on Raw.. and I'm not even on Smackdown- but there ain't no denying that I am the Hottest Free Agent in Sports Entertainment today baby!

    Ryback doesn't look impressed at all as Slater continues.

    HEATH SLATER: Look last week... I think it's safe to say that things definitely didn't go my way. I had a match against my friend... Bo Dallas- and I don't know what the HELL Bo was playing at- by using the ropes for leverage to beat me.. but that's honestly not on my mind right now. I NEED an opportunity Daniel... I NEED another chance to earn a contract.

    DANIEL BRYAN: You do have a very fair point.. and I did indeed watch your match againt Bo Dallas- and he did use the ropes for leverage which gave him the advantage...

    As Slater nods in approval, Ryback cuts in- not happy about Slater's interruption.

    RYBACK:
    Are you being serious? WHO the hell do you think you are.. coming on Raw Talk and interrupting ME?! Do you not know who I am... look me in the eyes- and tell me that you haven't just made a mistake little man.

    As things begin to escalate- Slater isn't backing down.

    HEATH SLATER: To be quite frank Ryback.. I don't give a damn who you are man. But what I do know.. is that you've got your contract. You're assigned to a brand.. so you don't have a problem. I DON'T have a contract for any brand.. and that's the difference right there. You're doing nothing with your chances.. and it's not like Raw was any different without you. Whereas me? I wasn't on the show tonight either- but I had the world chanting 'SIGN HEATH SLATER!' So you wanna know who I think I am? I'm the One Man Band BAAAAABY!! And I'm here for a second chance which I KNOW I deserve.

    DANIEL BRYAN: Okay- that's it guys, let's simmer down for now shall we? Raw Talk is about to end right now, so I'll make another announcement for next week's show. Ryback... you want an opportunity to prove yourself... Slater- you want a shot to earn another contract since you have a viable reason to make your claims.. next week- we will have a match! It will be The One Man Band in Heath Slater taking on Ryback! And Slater... we're gonna do the same as last week. If you win.. you will earn your contract on Raw. But if you don't? Well you're just going to have to start looking for a job elsewhere.

    Slater nods with the opportunity he has just been granted- before walking off from the set. Ryback begins to stare Bryan & Caruso out- as The Human Wrecking Ball also walks off, with a cold look on his face, when really- he's also satisfied with the opportunity.

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    Another match made for next week as we will see Heath Slater get his second chance to earn a contract on Raw as he goes one on one with The Big Guy in Ryback! That's it from us guys- we hope that you have enjoyed the first edition of Raw Talk... goodbye WWE Universe!

    The first episode of Raw Talk comes to an end as the show closes.

    RAW REVIEW

    - Nice start with Stephanie confirming the Orton/Lesnar contest. In an age of split brands you should always try and get a interpromotional match on the big PPVs.

    - Awesome opening with Cesaro reminding us about the prestige of the Intercontinental title before Miz reminds us that he's beaten Cesaro several times before. I like the idea of a Last Chance match, and right now my money is on Cesaro so that Miz can move up the card after Summerslam without having to worry about getting his rematch clause. Miz was very well written here.

    - Reigns was always winning against Zayn but the Canadian gave him a right good contest. The speech afterwards by Reigns was to the point, but I don't expect Ambrose to 'stick to his lane' anytime soon. He's not fond of taking orders.

    - I like the potential of a New Day/Usos/American Alpha feud for the titles. New Day and Usos have shown in reality how well they gel and getting Alpha to mix it up with these two teams is only good for them.

    - Nice segment with Heyman and Lesnar. Titus really put his foot in it by mocking Heyman. Glad to see that Orton and Lesnar will have to wait for any physical confrontation.

    - Loved The New Day stuff. Very well written and made me laugh.

    - It was always coming down to Alpha and The Usos but you built a nice little understory with The Ascension attacking The Lucha Dragons. Be interesting to see if you pull the trigger on American Alpha at Summerslam. The WWE never quite got them over.

    - Great little segment with Cena. I can see Styles agreeing to his demands. Sets the tone to blow the feud off once and for all.

    - Good main event as expected and the predictable result. Good finish afterwards with Ambrose addressing Reigns, being attacked by Sheamus and saved by Reigns. Would have loved for Ambrose to have hit Reigns with the Dirty Deeds just after he saved him but the refusal of friendship is enough. Definitely heating things up between the former Shield brothers. Good work.

    Overall a very good show. I enjoyed reading it and I am looking forward to seeing what happens with the tag division, Ambrose/Reigns and the interpromotional matches look great too. Keep up the top notch stuff mate.

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



    Smackdown Live Episode Three (New Era) - 02/08/16 - Bridgestone Arena, Nashville, Tennessee.


    Before we go live for another edition of Smackdown Live, a pre-show vignette begins to play and showcases footage and highlights from last week's Smackdown. It shows highlights such as the Apollo & Neville match, the Orton segment and the RKO to Del Rio sending a message to Brock Lesnar. It also shows the Club and AJ answering John Cena's challenge but the main focus is on the Finn Balor vignette and his arrival set for tonight. We quickly get a flashback viewing of Finn's previous achievements and accomplishment's before the video skips and the footage changes to static with Seth Rollins on Talking Smack. It highlights the words of Seth claiming that Smackdown belongs to him and his harsh woods for Finn Balor!

    SETH ROLLINS: Nobody... NOBODY is better then Seth Rollins! Not Apollo Crews, not Neville, Not AJ Styles and certainty not Finn Balor! Finn is nothing more then hype, a flash in the pan and it will soon become apparent that he's not in my league because I will become the new, World Heavyweight Champion! From next week- Seth Freakin' Rollins reclaims his spot on on top of the wrestling world and it starts by Showing the Demon King who's the.. MAN!

    The footage then fades and we are live!


    "Take A Chance" blares from the speakers as the pyro shoots around the stage! The crowd are on their feet, displaying their crowd signs and making noise as the live footage pans around and heads to the commentary table where Jim Ross, Booker T and "JBL" are ready to welcome the WWE Universe! Good Ole' JR welcomes everyone to the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville! "JBL" then chimes in and says that nobody will be feeling the blues tonight as we have a hell of a show prepared including the debut of the one and only, Finn Balor! Booker says he can't wait to see this kid in action and says that we also know that the rematch is official- Neville vs Apollo Crews II will take place.. Tonight, "Now can you dig that?" says an excited Booker as Jim Ross then announces we are about to hear from the boss- Shane O' Mac!

    HERE COMES THE MONEY!!

    Nashville goes off for the arrival of Shane O' Mac as shuffles out with his famous entrance. Shane is clearly pumped up by the crowd as he makes his way down to the ring- tapping his chest as the crowd chant his name. Shane then goes over to the side of the ring- grabs a microphone and begins to speak..

    SHANE MCMAHON: What's up Nashville?!

    Crowd pop.

    SHANE MCMAHON: Wow, I am loving the energy tonight! I'm pleased to see you all too and can I just say, to everyone here and everyone at home! Welcome to Smackdown Live!

    More crowd cheers.

    SHANE MCMAHON: Okay, so last week was awesome, you had fun right? I know I did and I couldn't be happier with how things went down- it had every thing, good wrestling, entertainment, fun, excitement and unpredictability and that's just the start because tonight we are going to do it all again! The rematch! The match social media has been buzzing about.. Neville vs Apollo Crews II will take place! Zack Ryder will have another chance to shine as he will take on Y2J- Chris Jericho! We will hear from the Viper, Randy Orton! How will he respond to Brock and Paul Heyman's words on Monday Night Raw?! The Bullet Club will be in the building and how will AJ Styles respond to John Cena?! Exciting times.. All that and more!

    Now WWE Universe, the moment we have been waiting for and it's my honor and pleasure to welcome the newest member to the home of the Blue brand. Give it up for the Demon King! Welcome- Finn Balor!

    CATCH YOUR BREATH!!

    The lights go out and a slow heart beat can be heard pumping in the background. It grows louder, harder, getting faster as demonic chanting can be heard in the background. A huge breath intake then sounds and the lights come on with smoke filling in the arena as Finn Balor's name appears on the big screen to a huge pop! The noise then goes up again when Finn Balor steps through the smoke and on to the stage.

    Balor look's a million dollars as he stands in an all black suit and black with gold tint aviators. Finn then removes his sunglasses before placing them in the inside of his jacket pocket before he makes his way down the ramp, slapping hands with the crowd before entering the ring and shaking hands emphatically with Shane Mcmahon as the crowd begin to chant "This is awesome!" & "Welcome Finn!" to Balor's delight as he smiles and acknowledges them with a nod of his head before receiving the microphone from Shane and starting to speak.

    FINN BALOR: So, this is Smackdown Live, huh? Well.. let me tell ya' all, Finn Balor has arrived!

    Crowd pop.

    FINN BALOR: Hard work, blood, sweat and tears. The pain, the homesickness, the doubters.. It was all worth it because Finn Balor has arrived in the WWE and on Smackdown Live and I couldn't be happier to be here! Shane Mcmahon, Eric Bischoff, I want to thank you both for bringing me here, it's a massive honor and to the WWE Universe, thank you for the welcome! I will not let any of you down!

    More crowd cheers as Shane claps the words of Finn Balor.

    FINN BALOR: Shane O', make no mistake about it.. You have signed a real Rock N' Rolla! I'm the real deal and I have proved it everywhere I have gone! Be it at home in Ireland.. the UK scene.. Japan.. NXT, I've arrived and conquered everywhere I have been and I will do the same here on Smackdown Live! WWE Universe I have always believed that if you go as far as you can see, you will then see enough to go further and that starts with SummerSlam! Couple of years ago, I was in Japan, I was running around with my brothers! *Finn gestures the 2-Sweet hand sign* and I couldn't see the WWE but you strive to achieve, you dare to dream! Flash forward and hear I am! Now I stand further forward and I look beyond again.. SummerSlam! I want to become the first ever Smackdown Live World Heavyweight Champion of the new era!

    Crow continue cheering and chanting "YES! YES! YES" as Shane listens to them. Finn goes to continue speaking when the theme of Seth freakin' Rollins blares from the speakers..

    THE SECOND COMING!!!

    The crowd boo with only a few cheers for the sound of Seth's theme as he steps out on to the stage. Seth looks annoyed and begins walking down the ramp, headed for the ring. Rollins is wearing black skinny jeans and his "Redesign. Rebuild. Reclaim." shirt. He snatches a microphone from the timekeepers area before entering the ring and speaking..

    SETH ROLLINS: Real cute Balor, I mean, really. Come on, why don't you give us another quote, huh? Why don't you tell us another sob story, huh? Come on Finn, we've all been dying for you to arrive, we're all so excited that you have finally graduated from NXT! Go on Finn, carry on speaking.. I want to here more!

    Finn just looks as Seth stares. Balor then goes speak again but Seth speaks over the top of him.

    SETH ROLLINS: I'm sick of this crap! You've been here literally minutes and you're talking about the World Heavyweight Championship?! You want a quote Finn? I'll give you one! Redesign! Rebuild! Reclaim! That's Seth FREAKIN' Rollins! You might think tonight is about you, but it's actually about me and that's how things are going to be around here from now on because just like I was on Raw, ain't nothing changed but the background noise because I'm still the MAN! You want a sob story Finn? I'll give you one! How about never losing the match at Battleground and knowing that you should be the WWE Champion! That's the reality for me Balor! Roman Reigns lost the match and it's me that suffered because my Championship is gone and it's over my dead body Balor if you think this is Japanese play time with your little buddies and you're going to come into my ring and take my World Heavyweight Championship!

    Matter of fact Shane.. It's about time you announced me in the Title match at SummerSlam because it's the least you can do and it's the least that I am owed after I would have won the WWE Championship had it not been for Roman at Battleground. So go on.. go on Shane, announce it. I'm in the match at SummerSlam!

    Seth Rollins lowers the microphone after that little rant and both him and Balor stare at each other as the crowd are enjoying the moment as it bubbles up nicely, tension in the air and you could cut it with a knife! Shane steps forward before addressing both men in the middle of the ring.

    SHANE MCMAHON: Well actually Seth.. I'm afraid you're not in the match! And Finn... I am afraid, you're not either.. neither of you are.. at the moment! Now hold up a minute, both of you, hear me out. I respect both of you! I am delighted that two of the best wrestlers today in Seth Rollins and Finn Balor are on Smackdown Live and both me and Eric Bischoff couldn't be happier to see you both here and do you know what, I'm not going to lie, I would love nothing more then to see both of you in the Main Event competing for the vacant World Heavyweight Championship at SummerSlam!

    BUT! This is Smackdown and nobody walks into a title match on the blue brand. Championship opportunities are earned and are given to those that earn them. So Finn.. Seth, both of you will have to earn your spots and I'm going to give you a chance tonight because you will both be in action! Seth Rollins you will go one on one with the All American- Jack Swagger and that match will be up next! While you, Finn Balor, you will go one on one with an old rival and will face Kevin Owen's in tonight's Main Event! I wish you both, good luck. Nashville, I hope you enjoy the show!

    The crowd pop for the match announcements, more so for the PPv worthy match up of Kevin Owens vs Finn Balor in tonight's Main Event. The camera pans around both Finn and Rollins who are face to face, trading words before the theme of the All American- Jack Swagger begins to play and Balor leaves ringside.


    Match One: Jack Swagger vs Seth Rollins.
    Finish: The bout would start with Rollins looking to strike early after the bell but Swagger grabbing him and taking him down with some mat based grappling as Rollins would look to escape. Swagger would then impress with his wrestling once more, locking Rollins down with a couple of submission attempts before Rollins would slip away and scurry out of the ring to catch his breath and re-think the game plan. When Rollins finally entered back into the ring- the dynamic changed and Seth took advantage. The turning point of the match being when Swagger would go for a spear attempt and would charge only to go shoulder first into the turnbuckle and do some damage to his left shoulder as Rollins would then pin-point the same shoulder and arm, working it over as Swagger showed pain etched across his face.

    The match would be around the 6-7 minute mark and Seth would tease the return of the curb stomp, jumping in the air- only for Swagger to clutch the foot, drag him down and lock in the ankle lock! At this point, Jim Ross would put over Swagger and his performance, teasing that it's a matter of time before Rollins taps out! However Seth would hold in long enough for Swagger to feel the strain on his shoulder and would be force to release the hold- leaving Rollins, rolling in pain. Swagger would be frustrated with himself- having to release the hold and grasp of the victory before pulling down the straps of his singlet in homage to Kurt Angle before grabbing up Seth and looking to place him in the German Suplex position. Seth would go low, rake to eye of Swagger before a side kick to the mid-section bringing Swagger to one knee. Seth would then appear to attempt another curb stomp however would run the ropes before leaping in the air and bringing down his body weight and knee across the injured shoulder and back of Swagger in a nasty landing! Rollins would then finish the match by dragging up Swagger, boot to the gut and PEDIGREE! One! Two! Three!
    Spoiler:



    WINNER: SETH ROLLINS!


    Rollins would order the Referee to stop checking on Swagger and raise his hand in victory as he pointed to the camera and began to trash-talk Finn Balor and announce that he's going to become the World Heavyweight Champion at SummerSlam! Jim Ross then says that Rollins might have got the victory and perhaps he might have even impressed Shane and Eric Bischoff tonight- but Jack Swagger showed he could hang with the very best here tonight and had it not been for that potential shoulder injury, he might have won the match!


    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The show would return to the break and would go backstage in the GM's office where Eric Bischoff could be seen and heard talking on the phone. There's a small cheer for the sight of the former WCW boss before it all turns to Boo's as the Nature Girl- Smackdown Women's Champion, Charlotte Flair and Dana Brooke enter the office and the camera shot. Eric says.. "I'll call you back!" before putting the phone away and asking what he can do for Charlotte?

    CHARLOTTE FLAIR: Eric, Sir, I am sorry that I've had to come into your office, unannounced but I had no choice. Did you see what happened on Talking Smack last week with Renee Young and Shane? Did you see that has-been, never was, Nattie, storm onto the set and throw her weight around and demand a match against me? Worst of all, Eric. Did you see Shane Mcmahon totally lose the plot and throw away his authority and give in to the tear tantrum of Natalya, showing her pity and granting her a Championship match against me?! It's wrong! This.. This cannot be happening! She doesn't deserve a match against me! She's not in my league, Eric.

    Charlotte is clearly furious and so is Dana who motions along with Charlotte's words as Eric looks on, listening to what the Women's Champ has to say..

    CHARLOTTE FLAIR: Shane Mcmahon is a hypocrite! I'm sorry, but he is.. He just moments ago said that Finn Balor and Seth Rollins had to earn their shots at the Title at SummerSlam but little miss sour Hart Natalya can walk right into one? No! It's not going to happen! Eric.. I refuse! Eric.. This is why Shane Mcmahon chose you, to make things right. Eric, I know you're a good man, you're a wise man and you will do the right thing! You know this is wrong and that Natalya needs to earn the right to face me at SummerSlam! Please! Do the right thing Mr Bischoff, I know you will.

    As Charlotte finish's her plea to Eric, Dana at this point is literally draped across his shoulder, flaunting and doing her best to convince Eric that Charlotte is correct. Eric ask's Charlotte to calm down and steps back from Dana Brooke before speaking..

    ERIC BISCHOFF: Charlotte, I have thought about what you have said and you know... You're right! Now, don't get me wrong.. Me and Shane we are a team and I'll stand by his choice, just like he will for mine but on this occasion and with the excitement of the first show, I think Shane made a rash choice and really allowed his thinking to be done with his heart rather then his head. Natalya does need to earn her chance around here just like everyone else! So, while I'm going to change Shane's plans a little.. I will still give Natalya the chance to compete against you at the PPv- So here's the new plan! Natalya will face Dana Brooke one on one tonight and if she wins- she will face you for the Women's Championship at SummerSlam! However, should she lose and Dana should win.. The Natalya will go right back to the end of the line and will not face you at SummerSlam! Sound fair? I think so! Now, if you excuse me, I have a call to make.

    Charlotte and Dana Brooke both look delighted as Eric proceeds to take a call. Dana and Charlotte exit the GM office in discussions, no doubt thinking of a plan as Jim Ross says that the old Flair charm came good once again and that she worked over Eric into changing the plan. "JBL" disagree's and says that Eric made the right choice and that Charlotte was correct- you can't go gifting Championship chances to people that don't earn them- it's wrong! Booker then switches subjects and talks about the match that had social media buzzing last week- Apollo Crews vs Neville! All three men put over the match as the Titantron shows various highlights before Booker T announces that the rematch is next! Apollo Crews vs Neville II!


    Match Two: Apollo Crews vs Neville.
    Finish: The match started with both men standing in the middle of the ring- looking out towards the cheering crowd. The crowd were 50/50, chanting for both Neville and Apollo. Both men would share words, both clearly doing what they love to do, what they were born to do and enjoying the moment and admiration of the fans. The ring bell would sound and both would grapple up! Back and forth, both Neville and Apollo would tussle for strength and Apollo would just get the advantage, snapping Neville down with a head lock before the Englishman would roll Apollo over, slide free and 'kip up to crowd cheers. Neville would then offer out his hand and drag up Apollo as the crowd would cheer again. The grapple would begin again and this time Neville would take Crews down with an arm drag, locking in an arm bar before Apollo would get to one knee, fall back and 'kip up of his own before ducking underneath and sweeping away Neville's legs knocking him down. Apollo with a smile on his face would then return the favor and would help up Neville as again the crowd cheered- this time applauding both as Jim Ross puts over both men and their wrestling ability!

    The match was then underway and both men gave it everything! 7-8 minutes of back and forth action that had everything in a match! Grappling, power moves, submission and high flying ability! Clearly both men were intent on beating their previous match and proving both are that good and the match was not a fluke. The ending would come with Apollo catching Neville in mid-air after a springboard cross-body attempt. Apollo would lift him up before power slamming him in the middle of the ring. Apollo would then drag up Neville and would Gorilla press him in the center of the ring before taking his stance for the leaping back flip splash. Booker T would scream that we are about to see the Apollo Combination! Apollo would leap in the air but Neville would get up his knee's and Crews would fall hard- crushing his stomach! Neville would then be up like a whippet and would run the ropes delivering a devastating shining wizard to the face of Apollo, knocking him down. With the crowd cheering- Neville would the point to the top of the turnbuckle and would begin to climb up. Perched on top, Jim Ross would say that we know what's coming next folks!...




    ..RED ARROW! Neville lands perfectly with the Red Arrow and it's a thing of beauty as the replay instantly shows on the big screen. Neville holds his stomach in pain but drags himself across and places his arm on top of Apollo Crews.. One! Two! Three!

    Spoiler:

    WINNER: NEVILLE!

    The crowd are chanting "That was awesome!" as Jim Ross puts over the match and the finishing move as a thing of beauty! "JBL" says that both Neville and Apollo Crews have arrived- back to back- show stealing performances and with a win each.. we must need a third?! Booker says that Smackdown have two gems that just need a little bit of polish and they will continue to shine! He says forget the third match, both of these guys deserve to go to SummerSlam and compete for the World Heavyweight Championship! Neville look's delighted with his win as the Referee raises his hand in victory. Neville soon stops though and helps up Apollo who looks disappointed with the outcome. Neville offers out his hand and Apollo just looks back. With the crowd cheering- Apollo shakes Neville's hand, pulls him in and raises his hand in victory.

    The camera then cuts backstage where the always beautiful Renee Young is waiting by with Y2KO ready to interview them..

    "My guest's at this time.. Y2KO! Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens!" Says Renee Young as there's a mixed reception from the crowd in attendance. Renee Young then ask's both Chris Jericho and Kevin Owen's for their thoughts on their respective matches tonight as Jericho will face Ryder and Kevin Owens will go one on one with Finn Balor in tonight's Main Event. Jericho will speak first, throwing his scarf over his shoulder and raising him clipboard as he edges closer to Renee's microphone.

    CHRIS JERICHO: You want to know my thoughts, Renee? Huh.. do you? You want to know the thoughts of Y2KO? You want to know the thoughts of the GOAT and his best friend, Kevin Owens? Well.. Do you? Off course you do, Renee. The WWE Universe and every media outlet around the world wants to know the thoughts of Y2KO, the best of friends and lucky for you all... You're going to get....

    Raises his finger and point's at Renee as the fans know what's coming next. There's a real awkward pause and when Renee goes to speak.. Jericho jumps in and continues on..

    CHRIS JERCIHO: IT! IT, RENEE! You're gonna' get... IT! And here IT.. comes. Zack Ryder is nothing more then an embarrassment! He's a buffoon, Renee. We all seen him last week.. crying backstage to Shane Mcmahon for another chance and he's got one! Zack Ryder is nothing more then a stupid idiot! He's a loser, Renee. And do you know what happens to losers? Huh? I'm asking you Renee Young.. Do you know what happens to losers? Huh, do you?

    Jericho stare's at Renee Young, waiting for the answer that the crowd are desperate to hear. Renee though choose's not to reply and Jericho eventually finishes his own question..

    CHRIS JERICHO: Zack Ryder! YOU JUST MADE THE LIST!!! *Scribbles down name* Oh and since you didn't know the answer, Renee... Renee Young! Guess what happens?! Go on.. Guess.. *Clicks pen* YOU JUST MADE THE LIST, TOO! And that's how it's going to be.. Every buffoon, every loser and crybaby is going to make the list of Jericho and become an enemy of Y2KO, BAY-BAY!

    KEVIN OWENS: Speaking of losers, Chris. You know, you better right down Finn Balor's name on that list too, because he's another loser and I'm going to prove it tonight! *Jericho rights down Balor's name* It makes me so sick to see how everyone is so, so, so excited for the arrival of Finn Balor! Wow- big deal. I'm not excited and I've beat Balor before and I'll do it again! Finally- FINALLY I get rid of Sami Zayn and what do you know.. Shane Mcmahon drags up another ghost from my past and I've got to get rid of him too! Well Shane, that's okay, because I'll be ever so happy to stop this Finn Balor welcoming party before it ever truly get's started and when I do, the blood will be on your hands, Shane-O, not mine! However, I'll give some credit where it's due and appears you were listening last week because I'm back where I belong.. In the Main Event! Now, that's a start, Shane. Well done! When I've beaten Finn Balor tonight- I expect to be the first name announced in the World Heavyweight Championship Match at SummerSlam!

    Jericho and Owen's then walk off as Renee Young is left to stand- pondering the words of Y2KO before the live footage cuts to a commercial break.


    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The live footage return's from the break and showcases ringside where the theme of Chris Jericho is playing and along with Owen's at his side, the GOAT reaches the ring and begins to stretch. Jim Ross then welcomes the crowd back from the break and announces that Ryder vs Jericho is next! Ryder's theme then plays and to a good reception from the audience makes his way down the ramp and enters the ring- ready to compete!


    Match Three: Chris Jericho W/ Kevin Owens vs Zack Ryder.
    Finish: The match would go around the 5 minute mark and the bout was back and forth. Both Ryder and Jericho sharing spells of control as the crowd were heavily in the favor of Ryder as he was battling Jericho in the ring and watching Owen's on the outside who would vocally support his best friend and demand the Referee to count quicker whenever Jericho had a pin attempt. The ending would come with Ryder on the ring apron and Jericho in the middle of the ring. Ryder would look to scale the turnbuckle only for Owen's to trash talk and take away his concentration. Jericho would then have enough time to get up and land a dropkick from the second turnbuckle, knocking Ryder of the apron and down to the floor. At this point- Jericho would the Referee away and distract him as Owen's would lay boots into Ryder! Owen's would then slide Ryder into the ring and Jericho would begin to smile, stalking the "broski" as he attempted to stand. As he did- CODEBREAKER! "JBL" shouted as Jericho went for his finishing move but Ryder would hold him before charging into the turnbuckle as Jericho's back and head clattered into the turnbuckle and Ryder would release him. Jericho now slumped into a sitting position would be in position! Woo! Woo! Woo! BROSKI BOOT! Shouted Booker T as Ryder connected with the kick to the face and went for the three count! One! Two! Thr-

    NOOOO! Shouted Jim Ross as Owens would drag the Referee by the leg and stop the pin attempt as the crowd boo'd furiously and Ryder was denied the victory. The Referee would get right into Owen's face and ask him what the hell he's doing before ordering him to the back as the crowd cheered frantically. Back in the ring though and Jericho seen a chance! He would forearm smash Ryder from behind before placing him in the Walls of Jericho and it was locked in tight, only a matter of time before Ryder would tap. Ryder though would dig down deep as Jim Ross put over his heart and desire to compete and continue on. Ryder would scissor himself free and send Jericho across the canvas and with the crowd cheering him.. Would rise to his feet and run at Jericho looking for the Rough Ryder! Jericho though would duck underneath and land a swinging neck-breaker in the middle of the ring. Both men would be gassed- digging deep as the match clock ticked out. Jericho would raise up first and instead of going for the kill- got in the face of the official, demanding an answer as to why his best friend was evicted from ringside. This hesitation would be his downfall as he ran the ropes and sprung off them with the Lionsault but Ryder would move! Zack would then drag himself up, the crowd cheering him on and would wait for his chance. Jericho eventually stumbling up, holding his chest and bang! ROUGH RYDER! Shouted Jim Ross as the crowd cheered him on! Ryder with the cover- One! Two! Three!

    Spoiler:

    WINNER: ZACK RYDER.


    Huge cheers sounded as Ryder was announced as the winner of the match! Jericho would roll out of the ring- furious and would immediately head backstage up the ramp, sulking. Ryder though would savor the moment, knowing it's a big one in his career as he dropped to his knee's and thanked the crowd for their support. We had one last shot of the Referee raising Ryder's arm in victory before the focus turned to the big screen where the Tiantron was about to go live!

    NARRATOR: The following announcement has been paid for by..




    NARRATOR: BULLET CLUB, 4-4-4-4 LIIFEEEEEE


    Shot'Em then plays in the background as a small montage of Bullet Club members Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows and AJ Styles is shown. It finishes before the feed goes Black & White and the vignette begins to play.

    Gallows and Anderson are first shown, in front of the camera and they mean business. Anderson steps forward and speaks..

    ANDERSON: Dudley Boyz! Enzo & Cass! The Revival! You all talk about laying down a marker in the tag team Division and you know, that's real cute boys. I'll tell you what laying a marker down looks like, it looks like a near 7ft mountain of a man named Luke Gallows and a slightly smaller, good looking dude with a hot Asian Wife kicking ass across the globe! Dominating the competition.

    GALLOWS: Laying down a marker is selling out the Tokyo Dome, 8 times, NERDS! It's about being mean and making green and you best believe that's what we do best. Ain't that right my good Brother?

    ANDERSON: Right, good Brother, Gallows. Three time IWGP tag team Champions! Coun't them, three times! And we ain't done! You see we're here in the WWE because we beat everyone there was to beat in Japan and now we turn our attention to America! The land of the free? WRONG! It belongs to the Bullet Club!

    GALLOWS: It's a takeover, people. You're either with us.. OR, You're against us! Time to listen good, boys. We beat up the SHIELD two weeks ago! Just last week.. We beat up Enzo & Cass! Dudley Boyz, Revival, anyone that get's in our way, you will be next! Bullet Club arising boys, there ain't nothing you can do!

    A smaller man then squeezes in and pushes in-front of Anderson & Gallows. Though the picture is grainy, Black & White, it's obvious the man is wearing John Cena merchandise. Hat, shirt and even a necklace from what appears to be his DR of Thuganomic's days. The smaller man speaks.

    UNKNOWN: Now hold up, I will not let this happen! I will save Smackdown and the WWE from this new evil that call themselves the Bullet Club! I have defeated the Nexus! I have toppled the Great Khali and the Big Show! I will stop this evil Club of Bullet's and I will do so with my super-powers of.. HUSTLE! LOYALTY! And.. being a puppet to Vince Mcmahon! I will bury the Bullet Club and all of it's more talented then me, wrestlers, just like I always have and always will.. for I am.. SUPER-CENA! YOU CAN'T SEE...

    ...ENOUGH OF THIS CRAP!

    The man then rips away the hat, throws away the chain and rips off the shirt- It's AJ Styles!

    AJ STYLES: What's up Johnny boy? How's life on Raw treating you, huh? Hope you're enjoying the vignette? You know, it really is paid for by the Bullet Club because only certain people like you get things paid for you, isn't that right Johnny? I mean not everyone can play the politics like you can.. You're the master at it, Cena. Just like you're the master of stealing the limelight from everyone else. Well.. this time, you've met your match Cena because YOUR TIME IS UP, OUR TIME IS NOW! You know the real reason you challenged me at SummerSlam? Because you want to stay relevant and I applaud you. I mean think about it.. how come every time someone get's hot in the WWE- there you are, getting involved, the whole Cena stick.. Again! You wouldn't be trying to steal the lime light, would you? Oh.. do you think? Well Cena, you've got the lime light again and at SummerSlam the floor is yours once more to dance. Only you're in the ring with the greatest wrestler this side of the Universe and I can waltz around you all night long, Johnny boy!

    AJ begins to shake his hips and dance around as he smiles.

    AJ STYLES: I heard you on Raw, Cena. You don't think I can beat you on my own, huh? You don't think I can? Well I'll show you! Gallows, Anderson- my good Brothers, I got to do this one on my own and and when I do, there will be no excuses for you Johnny, your time will truly be up and you will fall by the way side as the Bullet Club continues to rise up the ranks in the wrestling world to that ELITE level! Oh and when we do, it will be.. 2-Sweeeetttt! So Johnny, I'll be seeing you at SummerSlam! Get your dancing shoes ready, because we gon' have a ball and I'm gon' do my most favorite thing in the whole world.. *Gallows and Anderson join in* BEAT UP JOHN CENA!!

    Come boys, let's go get something to eat! AJ, Gallows & Anderson leave the camera shot. A group "2-Sweet" sign takes place before the vignette footage fades.

    NARRATOR: This video was brought to you by.. The Bullet Club! 4-4-4-4-4 Liiiffeeeee!

    As the focus turned away from the Titantron and back to ringside, Epico & Primo of the Shining Stars were already in the ring- limbering up and displaying their Puerto Rico brochures to the camera. SAWFT is a Sin would then sound and there opponents- Big Cass & Enzo Amore made there way to the ring..


    Match Four: Enzo Amore & Big Cass vs The Shining Stars.
    Finish: Despite Epico & Primo having their moments the match was fairly comfortable for Enzo & Big Cass. Enzo was dominated and segregated from his corner in the opening minutes but would wriggle free and would make a hot tag to Big Cass who would enter the ring on fire and with a bang! Cass would clean house, knocking down both Epico & Primo with clothesline's and big boots before swinging them both into the ropes and looking for a double splash! Epico & Primo would move and would escape the ring- smiling that they've avoided danger before a flying Enzo Amore would come at them from above as he linked up with his partner to lift him up and over the ropes with a flying Air Enzo! Enzo would then roll both Epico & Primo back in the ring where Cass would deliver the East River Crossing to Primo. Cass would then combining once again with Enzo Amore to hit Bada Boom Shakalaka and going for the pin- One! Two! Three!

    Spoiler:

    WINNERS: ENZO AMORE & BIG CASS.


    The crowd celebrated as Enzo danced around the ring in victory while Big Cass would reach outside of the ring and receive two microphone's from Jojo and pass one to Enzo. Enzo waited for the crowd to die down the noise before speaking..

    ENZO AMORE: Hey, Yo, Nashville, how ya' doin' tonight?

    Crowd cheer with chants of "How you doin'?!" as Enzo begins to dance along.

    ENZO AMORE: How am I doin'? Well that's funny you should ask because I'm doin' a lot better now that the time warp is over and were back in 2016! Ya' kno', for a moment there, I thought I was watching the NWO with that vignette when it dawned on me and I realized that either my memory is fuzzy, or Hall & Nash had a whole lot less hair and were much uglier then I remembered.. How ya' doin?! And as for the small one with the soccer mom hair cut in front.. He might think he da' Hulk but he looking more like Bruce Banner, how ya' doin'?!

    The crowd enjoy the references to the nWo and comics as they cheer and continue to chant Enzo's name as he once more dances along. It's then over to his partner, Big Cass.

    BIG CASS: Bullet Club! Here's a message for you that's been paid for by two certified G's! Ya'll might think ya'll some tough guys and ya'll can keep talking about your accomplishments and success in Japan- but this is the USA and thing's are very different around here! It's over my 7ft body if you guys think you gon' make this a takeover because me and my buddy 'Zo, we ain't forget that post-match attack and we owe you a couple knuckle's that we intend on paying you right back- real soon!

    ENZO AMORE: Anderson! Gallows! You two couple of hard boiled egg heads think ya' gon' use ya' number game on us? Well I got a couple of digits for you, it goes 9-1-1, call an emergency, we got a cup of haters that think they better then everyone else and they gon' be going to SummerSlam looking like a couple of straight three's, with the wrestling ability of two's when AJ should be on his ones.. going one on one with our boy, John Cena!

    Now, I was never too good with math- but I got the gift of gab and a punch like Tyson, when it comes to the Bullet Club, they suck harder then my Dyson! How ya' doin?!

    The crowd are cheering as Enzo finishes his rant and begins running around the ring. Big Cass eventually stops him and continues to speak..

    BIG CASS: Numbers? Math? My head hurts.. But what my friend was trying to say.. Bullet Club! AJ Styles! We heard you talking about SummerSlam and how you're going to face Cena one on one and that your going to do this on your own? AJ, you don't have the stones to face John Cena one on one and you know it! You might come down alone- but the moment your in trouble, down they will come, the egghead brothers and the numbers will be once again be in your favor. So, here's what's going to happen.. Me and my boy, Enzo, we're going to SummerSlam too and we are going to be right there waiting for you two- Gallows and Anderson, to show up and make the save and when you do, we gon' be right in John Cena's corner and it's going to be a fair game! So AJ, the choice is yours, are you really man enough to face Cena one on one, or are you going to show that once again.. THERE'S ONLY ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE THE BULLET CLUB!! S!A!W!F!T! SAAAAWWWWFFFTTTTTTTT!

    The crowd join in as Nashville chants "SAWFT!" along with Big Cass & Enzo and the message has been sent and the challenge has been laid down to AJ Styles and the Bullet Club. Jim Ross agree's and says that despite what AJ said, he has a feeling that there will be a back up plan for Anderson & Gallows to be involved. "JBL" says that people shouldn't doubt AJ, he's a man of his word and that Cass & Enzo should mind there own business anyways! Booker says this is their business and especially so after that post-match attack previously from the Bullet Club! The camera then switches to the backstage area.

    We see a delighted Zack Ryder fist pumping with a smile on his face and nodding his head with excitement- clearly delighted with his win against Jericho earlier as he walks down the hall way. He fist bumps and high fives a couple of backstage workers before stopping and looking towards his right with intrigue. The camera pans across to show the Ravishing Russian, Lana. Wearing a very short dress and a seductive smile across her face, she begins to giggle and motions for Ryder to come over with a wag of her finger. Ryder hesitates before looking over his shoulder and going across, asking what Lana wants? Lana just smiles again as Ryder is blasted from behind by the Bulgarian Brute with the US Title across his head- knocking him down and out. Lana then shouts for Rusev to crush and the United States Champion does so- dragging up Ryder and launching him back first into the hall way concrete wall before following up with a jumping super kick to the face of Ryder- knocking him down for a second time. Rusev then latches in the accolade after stamping on Ryder's back and Lana watches on as Ryder is out cold. Various Referee's and officials then rip Rusev off Ryder as Shane Mcmahon comes running into the picture- asking what the hell is going on?! Rusev at this point had already flee'd the scene of the crime with his Wife, Lana. The shot then fades to a break.


    >> COMMERCIAL <<


    Jim Ross welcomes us back to the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee as the show returns from a commercial break. Jim Ross talks about what went down minutes ago as the attack on Ryder by Rusev is shown on via replay on the Titantron. Booker says that Ryder earned his moment tonight and couldn't even enjoy it because of an unneeded and unprovoked attack by the US Champion, Rusev! "JBL" says how would Booker like it if Ryder approached his Wife, pumping his fist and being obnoxious! John says that Ryder got what he deserved and that should be a lesson to him!

    "JR" highlights some of the action so far before hyping up what's to come, a PPv worthy Main Event as Kevin Owens will take on the debuting- Finn Balor! He also says that's not all because he this week caught up with future Hall of Famer, the Viper, Randy Orton! Ross says that he sad down with Orton in an exclusive interview that will air tonight on Smackdown Live! "JBL" chimes in and says that right now, we all need to bow down and make way of our Queen! Smackdown's Women's Champion! Charlotte Flair! Booker questions why John is getting so excited about Charlotte? He says this next match is Dana Brooke vs Natalya and as far as he's concerned- Charlotte should respect the match and stay away from ringside. "JR" says if Natalya loses, the match at SummerSlam is off- but if she wins, she will go to SummerSlam and compete for the biggest prize in Women's wrestling against Charlotte! That match is up next!

    Match Five: Dana Brooke W/ Charlotte vs Natalya.
    Finish: From the moment the ring bell sounded- the match was stop-start, stop-start, thanks to the antics of Dana Brooke and Charlotte on the outside. As Nattie attempted to lock up, Dana would slide away before hiding behind the Referee or cowering down in between the middle and top rope as the Referee would be forced to push Nattie back and break up the action. Dana would then begin to pose, showing off her "guns" before testing her strength against the Daughter of the Anvil. Dana would force Nattie down to one knee, winning the contest of strength before Nattie would dig deep, stand back up to a base and would push Dana down with real strength back cross the ring- sending her rolling out of the ring to the aid of the Women's Champion- Charlotte. Nattie would get sick of Brooke time wasting and would exit the ring only to have Charlotte stand in path way as both began to trash talk. Dana would then circle the ring and would blast Natalya from behind with a forearm before throwing her into the ring post and the crowd barrier to the delight of Charlotte. Dana would then roll Nattie into the ring and the action was finally underway!

    Dana would stay in control of the match from that point- working over Nattie to the command of Charlotte on the outside for a good minute or two before Natalya would fight back with the crowd on her side. Nattie would duck a clothesline attempt from Dana before spinning and nailing a discuss clothesline to her opponent- knocking Dana Brooke down! Nattie would then point at Charlotte, looking to send a message before locking in the famous Hart family, Sharpshooter in the middle of the ring! Jim Ross shouts that it's over, Dana is about to tap while "JBL" says that Dana needs to escape, she can't let the Queen down! Charlotte is screaming for Dana to not give up but Nattie cranks on the pressure! A couple of seconds pass- but it seems like hours for Dana and just when she's about to slap.. SMASH! Charlotte entered the ring and would level Nattie across the head with the Women's Championship! BAH GAWD, THAT DAMN JAZZABELL! Shouts Jim Ross as the Referee calls for a disqualification in favor of Natalya.

    Spoiler:

    WINNER: NATALYA.


    Charlotte and Dana Brooke begin to put boots to now challenger at SummerSlam to Charlotte's belt as the crowd are heavily booing. Charlotte places Nattie in the Figure Four Leg Lock while Dana kicks and beats down Nattie, causing serious pain. Soon though- the crowd pop and it's Becky Lynch! The Lass-Kicker runs down the ramp and storms the ring, forearm smash to Dana is followed by another. Charlotte releases the hold and looks to get the first punch in- Becky ducks though and fires with some shots of her own before a clothesline sends Charlotte over the top rope! Becky then lands the Bex-Plex on Dana Brooke before helping up Nattie from the canvas. Nattie then sends another message to Charlotte and locks in the Sharpshooter once more on Dana. Charlotte at this point looks like she's about to enter the ring and help her protegee before she instead reaches in and grabs her Women's Championship, turns her back and leaves ringside. Nattie then releases the submission before she hugs Becky Lynch, thanking her for the save before the camera heads backstage.

    We are backstage in the office of Shane Mcmahon. Shane O'Mac is on the phone and can be asked hearing if he's conscious and if everything is okay? Perhaps checking up on Ryder? However the call is cut short as the door swings open and in steps the Lone Wolf- Baron Corbin. Corbin is not happy and instantly begins to speak as Shane ends his call abruptly.

    BARON CORBIN: What the hell is going on, Shane?! I was not on the card last week- My patience is running out! I don't need to impress anyone with my words, my actions talk loud enough and things are going to get ugly around here if I'm left off the card again tonight- do you understand- Shane?! Oh and while I'm here.. I want in the World Heavyweight Championship match at SummerSlam and just so we are clear- I'm not asking you.. I'm telling you!

    Shane looks shocked- not expecting this outburst from Corbin. Shane places his mobile in the inside pocket off his jacket before replying..

    SHANE MCMAHON: Baron, the show is already booked tonight. You're not on the card, Corbin. Furthermore, I suggest you watch your mouth and remember who you're speaking to right now, is that clear?

    Corbin just smiles and steps forward, leaning in to Shane as they almost come face to face when another voice speaks and breaks up the confrontation..

    ???: YOU BETTER START SHOWING SOME RESPECT, BOY!

    The camera pans behind Corbin and the figure moves in shot of the camera. It's the World's Strongest Man- Mark Henry to the delight of Shane and the annoyance of Corbin. Henry stands right up to Baron and they're both face to face as Shane begins to speak..

    SHANE MCMAHON: Corbin, you want a fight? You want a challenge? You've got one! Next week on Smackdown Live you will go one on one with the Worlds Strongest Man! Mark Henry! Good luck!

    Henry just smiles as Baron Corbin rolls his eyes and turns away to exit the camera shot as the segment ends with Henry and Shane-O' shaking hands to the commercial break.

    >> COMMERCIAL >>

    Smackdown returns from the break as the voice of Jim Ross welcomes us back to Smackdown Live here in Nashville! Jim Ross says that was the last commercial break of the evening and we're full steam ahead with our Main Event in sight as it will be sworn enemies locking up. KO- Kevin Owens will take on the Demon King, the Real Rock N' Rolla, Finn Balor! Booker says it's going to be awesome and that he cant wait to see it go down, dawg! JBL says it's going to be a short stay in Smackdown for Balor because Owen's means business tonight and he's coming to take Balor out of action and end this welcoming party nonsense! Good Ole' JR then says but before our Main Event of the evening- It's the interview that he promised earlier on in the show, Smackdown interview exclusive with the Viper, Randy Orton! Jim Ross says enjoy as the Tron goes live and showcases the pre-taped footage of the interview between "JR" and Orton.

    The footage is pre-taped and look's to have been shot inside of Randy's home. Both men are sat on opposing armchairs with a coffee table in the middle dividing them. Orton look's relaxed, calm, unnerved, focused as Jim Ross jumps in with the first question.

    JIM ROSS: Firstly, Randy, thank you for welcoming me into your lovely home and for taking the time to have this exclusive interview with me. Randy, I've got to say, since the moment you returned and called out the Beast Incarnate at Battlground- the WWE Universe, Social Media, magazines, the wrestling world in general is talking about you and Brock- this potential match up between two former blue chip students of OVW, multiple Champions, big game players and future Hall of Famer's going one on one at the hottest party of the Summer- SummerSlam! Randy, you've had sometime to think about that challenge to Brock, that moment at Battleground. I've got to ask- any regrets? Any doubts?

    RANDY ORTON: You're welcome, Jim. And the answer to your question? None! No doubts, no regrets! I'm thinking clearer then I have ever have, Jim. I've done everything- I've beaten everyone except one man.. Brock Lesnar! While I was away out injured- I was on the sidelines and it sucked, Jim. Missing Raw's, Smackdown's, house shows, PPv's, it sucked so bad but it allows to you reflect, to think.. to adapt! I seen one man become a legend, become so feared that nobody else wanted to face him.. People were running scared at the sight of Brock Lesnar.. Well.. Not me! I've said it before.. Brock's name has become legendary.. Well.. I'm a legend killer and I made a living out of putting legends down and rising above them and nothing's changed, Ross. Come SummerSlam.. Brock Lesnar is another name on the list.

    JIM ROSS: Randy, I've known you a long time. I've seen you grow from a boy to a man, from a rookie to a star and I have to admit- I'm not sure I've ever seen you so determined and focused. Randy, this past week Brock's advocate- Paul Heyman had some choice words for you, did you hear them? Were you watching Raw?

    RANDY ORTON: Yeah, I heard them. You know what was telling though- Jim? I challenged the Beast, I challenged Brock Lesnar, not that fat leach Paul Heyman! Heyman talked about cheque's, he talked like a salesman trying to sell a fight to the fans. This sells it's self, Jim. The Viper is coming to Suplex City and he's going to strike with an RKO so devastating that it's going to kill the Beast. THEN.. When I'm done with Brock.. Heyman better hope those voices in my head that he referenced are not baying for his blood because if they are, I'm coming for him too! I'll take him down, STOMP! STOMP! STOMP! Crush all of his limbs while he wriggles in agony and I'm there.. Coiled, waiting to strike, like a Viper watching a fat Mouse trying to escape and when I'm done playing with my catch... RKO! I'll kill him too!

    Heyman, I know you're watching and maybe your walking paycheck is too. Here's some advise for you, this is between me and Brock.. I suggest you shut your mouth and for once let Brock fight his own battles because I don't know about everyone else, but I'm sick of hearing your damn voice and I want that whiny voiced bitch to speak up so I can hear what he has to say, that's as long as he's not mumbling or forgetting his words. Brock, this is between me and you. The Viper vs the Beast, the match the people want to see. Your advocate suggested that I needed you, that I needed this match? He's right Brock.. I need this match! I needed the motivation to be the man I was.. Cold.. Calculated and at SummerSlam.. I will be.

    Brock, your advocate was wrong about one thing though. While I do have no doubt in my mind that I'll walk into Suplex City and I'll slay you with one single, devastating RKO outta' nowhere! Should you, somehow, some reason, some way.. move, attempt to stand.. You're going to find out that I don't need an F5, I don't need a German Suplex, I don't need a Kimura Lock. I need one right boot.. some distance and a run up... BANG! One kick to your temple will crush your cranium and leave your cold body motionless, Brock. I can do that.. I've done it before and while that move is banned in the WWE.. I can't promise that I won't do that to you because I will.. I'll do whatever it takes, Brock. I'm coming for you at SummerSlam, Lesnar. So tell your kids you love them, Brock. Your Wife, Sable, tell her you love her as you kiss her and turn to leave because it could be the last time you ever see them! Brock.. I'll see you at SummerSlam! Jim, I think we're done here.

    Orton then takes off his microphone and gets off his chair, holding his head, his eyes almost stone like, evil intentions across his face as he paces back and forth before the feed dies and the live footage turns to ringside. Wow says "JBL" as he says that Orton mean't everything he said and as a deadly as the Beast is- Brock is getting in the ring with a venomous Viper who has the intention to kill. Booker says that Orton seems to be in that dark place right now and there's evil intentions floating around in that head of his, SummerSlam is going to be craazzyyyy! Jim Ross says the Interview was intense and afterwards, Randy seemed to be in another dimension, clearly focused on the match and his opponent- Brock Lesnar! Jim Ross then announces that the time has come for the Main Event of the evening! It's Kevin Owens vs Finn Balor!


    Main Event Match: Kevin Owens W/ Chris Jericho vs Finn Balor
    Finish: The atmosphere was electric with the Nashville crowd clearly excited for the WWE debut of the Demon King- Finn Balor! His entrance was greeted to a hero's ovation as the crowd went crazy for him as he made his way down, interacting with them as certain points of his theme music hit. Balor would enter the ring and remove his jacket before turning to the stage and awaiting his rival- Kevin Owens. KO's theme would hit and there was a mixed response as he came out with Jericho in tow. KO and Jericho would make there way down the ramp, avoiding the crowd's interaction attempts before Owens would slide in the ring and the ring bell would sound to get the match underway!

    KO and Finn would just stand there- face to face as the crowd chanted "this is awesome!" as Finn smiled. KO though was in no mood for smiling and would smack Finn across the face before telling him this ain't Japan, this ain't NXT, this is my world. Finn would turn his head to side and would smile again before launching forward with a flurry of punches! KO would be taken back- attempting to cover up but Finn would carry on- rights and lefts, each one knocking Owen's back a little more before Balor would leap up and drop kick Owens down and would send him rolling out of the ring to safety. Balor would rise back up and pose for the crowd before running the ropes and then leaping to the outside with a dive over the top rope..



    ...CRASH! Balor would land perfectly on top of both Owen's and Jericho knocking them down as he popped back up and the crowd chanted and cheered his name. Finn would drag up KO and then roll him into the ring where the action would roll on! The match clock would tick around the 7/8 minute mark and it's been back and forth. Despite Finn controlling the start of the match- it would swing in favor of Owen's as Jericho would become a feature on the outside, grabbing Finn's boot as he sprung off the ropes and even jumping up on the ring apron as he attempted a signature move. At this point- both are on there feet and are trading blows in the middle of the ring..



    Owens!
    Balor!
    Owens!
    Balor!
    Owens!
    Balor!
    Balor!
    Balor!

    Shouted Jim Ross as Balor began to throw a combo together. He would then wind up for big shot but Owens would duck underneath before landing a German Suplex as the crowd chanted "Suplex City!" while Owen's went for the cover.. One! Two! Balor would kick out before the Three. Kevin would then ask the Referee to count quicker before dragging up Finn, boot to the stomach and would pick up before bringing him back down with real force in the middle of the ring..



    ...Innovative offence from Owen's as "JBL" shouted it's over, cover him KO! Owen's would scramble across and would hook the leg, looking for the Three count. One! Two! Balor would kick out and Owen's would lose it- turning to the Referee and demanding him to do his job properly and count quicker. Kevin Owen's would then roll out of the ring and would bring Finn with him and evils intentions were in his mind. Owen's would scoop him up in a power bomb position and would look to drop him back first onto the ring apron. Balor though would fight back! Right hand and after right hand to the skull of Owen's before he would drop and land on his feet. Balor would then leap onto the ring apron, take a few steps back before running forward and with a huge punt kick would smash Owen's in the face! Balor would hold onto the ropes as he almost fell of the ring apron while Owen's was out cold. Balor then dropped down, dragged up the motionless Kevin Owen's and slid him in the ring looking for the Three count!

    One! Two! Thre-NOOOOOOOO! Jericho would grab the Referee and drag him out of the ring- returning the favor to his best friend- Kevin Owen's like he had done to help him earlier in the show. The Referee would push Jericho and ask him what he's is doing?! Jericho though would push past him and enter the ring. He would run at Balor and look for a forearm smash but Finn would duck underneath and... PELE KICK! Shouted Jim Ross as Balor would catch Jericho sweet with the kick to the head. Finn would then drag him up and throw him over the top rope as Jericho landed to the outside hard. By the time Finn would realize, Owens was back up and ready, forearm smash to the side of the face, knocking the Demon King down. Owen's would then grip him up- throw him into the ropes and.. POP-UP POWER-BOMB! Shouted "JBL" but when Owen's would bring him back down- Balor would reverse and would hit a hurricarana into a roll up!

    One! Two! Owen's would kick out in complete shock and the race was on- both men getting to there feet where Balor would land first with a leaping high knee to the nose of Owens. Ouch! The crowd gasped at the strike before Balor would hit again- this time his signature- 1916! Balor with that lifting single under hook DDT as the crowd cheered his name. The match would then come to a close with Balor going to the top rope, posing for the fans before jumping in the air and coming back down with the..



    ..COUPE DE' GRACE! Finn Balor would land with the double foot stomp before going for the cover and picking up a big win.. One! Two! Three!
    Spoiler:



    WINNER: FINN BALOR.


    Jim Ross puts over Balor and his incredible victory tonight on his Smackdown debut. Booker says how Balor was effectively facing both Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho tonight! "JBL" says that he admits, Balor was impressive and it's a big victory to start his career on Smackdown Live! The Referee raises the hand of a delighted Finn Balor as JoJo announces his name in victory as the crowd chant and cheer his name, applauding the victory. Finn has little time to enjoy his victory though as from behind comes Y2J with a forearm to the back of the head knocking the Irishman down. Jericho then beats on him with boots before helping up his partner and best friend- Kevin Owen's as it quickly becomes a Two on One situation.

    Jim Ross yell's that Owens and Jericho are like a pack of wolves and that they've made their point, enough is enough! Y2KO though continue on and it's about to get worse. Jericho drags up Balor and holds him as Owen's slaps him across the face and teases the Pop-Up Power-Bomb as the crowd are booing. It looks bleak for Balor when a surprising turn of events takes place..


    SHOT'EM!!!

    The crowd give a surprised pop as Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows come charging down the ramp and storm the ring to help out their former Brother in arms- Finn Balor. Karl fights off Jericho with a handful of punches then a clothesline over the top rope before Gallows lands a big boot on Owen's, knocking him down and rolling out of the ring as the crowd give another cheer. The commentary team are going crazy, wondering what this could mean and if the Bullet Club's intentions are good?! It soon look's like the danger has not passed for Balor though as he's on his knee's, wondering what's going on.. He's dazed as Karl Anderson and Gallows begin to circle him, clenching their fist's, waiting for the chance to pounce.

    Balor eventually stumbles up and when he does, Gallows and Anderson advance! "JBL" screams that the Bullet Club have come to finish Balor off and that nobody leaves on their own terms! Jim Ross says this is bad, bad news for Balor as the crowd begin to boo! However, Gallows and Anderson then stop and they both smile before approaching Finn Balor and out of nowhere, up comes the arms and the kliq sign is on display as Anderson and Gallows offer the Bullet Club greeting to Balor who looks shocked. Finn looks both Gallows and Anderson in the air before smiling back and throwing up the "2-Sweet" and all Three men embrace in a hug as the crowd are cheering and Booker shouts it's a Bullet Club reunion in Nashville!

    However the celebration is soon over as current Bullet Club leader AJ Styles steps out on to the stage and just stares down to the ring as Finn Balor stares back. Soon Finn looks either side to Gallows and Anderson who exit the ring and head back up the ramp, taking their place alongside AJ. AJ motions for Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows to leave as they head behind the curtain and Smackdown ends with a face-off between AJ Styles and Finn Balor to end the show as Nashville are chanting "this is awesome!" and Jim Ross wishes everyone a good night and thanks the WWE Universe for tuning in and enjoying the show.

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



    8th August 2016 – Honda Center - Anaheim, California

    A video package begins to play as it highlights last week's edition of Raw. We see the segment between Cesaro & The Miz which leads to the announcement of a Last Chance match for Summerslam, as well as Nikki Bella's big return. We also see Paul Heyman ripping into Randy Orton before Brock Lesnar destroys Titus O'Neil. American Alpha are shown celebrating their victory for the #1 contendership to the Tag Team titles- before the clip shows Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns both gaining victories against Sheamus & Sami Zayn respectively. We then witness the war of words between Ambrose & Reigns last week, before Sheamus attacks Ambrose- leading to Reigns making the save. The package ends with Reigns offering to shake hands with Ambrose- but Ambrose waves his hand away leading to the fans cheering as the camera cuts to the arena...



    The fireworks explode on the stage as we are LIVE from The Honda Center here tonight! We go over to the announcers table as we have Michael Cole, Mauro Ranallo & Corey Graves on commentary tonight. Ranallo welcomes the fans to Monday Night Raw as we have many, many things in store for the WWE Universe tonight! We have a singles match lined up between 'The Human Wrecking Ball' Ryback to take on a free agent superstar in Heath Slater! This is Slater's second opportunity to get onto a brand, and If Slater wins, he will earn a Raw contract. Cole says that we also have a huge main event planned as Roman Reigns teams up with his opponent & brother at Summerslam in the WWE Champion... Dean Ambrose! Graves says that tonight's Raw is going to be great as we're on the road to Summerslam!

    California erupts with mixed reactions as Paul Heyman comes out with a mic! Heyman begins to speak on his way to the ring.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    Ladies and gentleman... my name is Paul Heyman- and I am the advocate of The Conqueror... BROOOOOOOCK LESNAAAAAAR!!

    The fans were joining along with Heyman's introduction as Heyman enters the ring- and stands in the centre of the squared-circle.

    PAUL HEYMAN: You know... myself and my client tuned into Smackdown last week- and let's just say.. that my client is a VERY angry man. Randy Orton.. I know you're watching- and I want you to listen to what I have to say. YOU were the man who made this personal when you called out The Beast for a match at Summerslam... so if you thought that this was personal then? Imagine just how bad Randy Orton had made it for himself on Smackdown... and for those that didn't tune into Smackdown? Here's a little footage to show what exactly INFURIATED my client.

    Heyman points to the TitanTron- which shows footage from the pre-taped interview between Randy Orton & JR from last week's Smackdown. We see Orton speaking to JR, as he speaks about Lesnar.

    RANDY ORTON: Brock. I'm coming for you at SummerSlam, Lesnar. So tell your kids you love them, Brock. Your Wife, Sable, tell her you love her as you kiss her and turn to leave because it could be the last time you ever see them! Brock.. I'll see you at SummerSlam!


    The camera cuts back to Heyman in the ring- as the fans begin to respond with mixed reactions. Heyman has a worried look on his face, as he gets serious.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    Well- the evidence is right there! WHAT in the world were you thinking Randy... when you brought up my client's loved ones? You just HAD to cross the line, and bring up my client's wife & his kids. Firstly.. you bring up the failed drugs test from UFC- and now you bring up my client's FAMILY?

    Heyman continues.

    PAUL HEYMAN: Are you trying to get yourself hurt Randy? Are you trying to get KILLED Randy?! Because you keep digging yourself an even bigger hole.. and believe me when I say this- this is as personal as it can get for BROCK LESNAR. If my client kills you.. you will be BURIED in Suplex City far, far away where nobody will ever find you. But you know what... if you REALLY wanna go that far- then maybe two can play at that game? What about YOUR family Randy?!

    California begins to respond with mixed reactions for Heyman.

    PAUL HEYMAN: You call my client a walking paycheck.. but YOU'RE the man that is providing for your own family by using MY client's illustrious name! Your family have a HUGE legacy in the wrestling world.. I mean- what about your father Randy?... Bob Orton JR? How would he feel knowing that his son's funeral was taking place in Suplex City and he couldn't even ATTEND?! Or how about your OWN wife? Or your OWN kids? It's just so damn easy to point the finger at others- when there are three fingers pointing straight back at you!

    Heyman nods in approval- as he continues to talk.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    You claim to be a Legend Killer... but there isn't NO CHANCE that you are going to kill MY BEAST. There is no way in HELL that you are going to conquer the CONQUEROR! Randy Orton wants to talk about how HE'S made a living out of putting legends down and rising above them? And you're not wrong Randy... you've had several moments where you have took out legends that were past their prime. You've had multiple matches with The Franchise of this company... John Cena- and you have both exchanged victories. But I remember once upon a time when BROOOOCK LESNAAAAR went face to face with John Cena- and my client SLAUGHTERED THE FRANCHISE!

    Some fans cheer.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    Or what about The Immortal himself... HULK HOGAN?! I remember when The Legend Killer himself went one on one with The Hulkster at Summerslam 2006- and what happened? Hogan DEFEATED Orton! But the last time MY CLIENT went one on one with Hulk Hogan on the 8th August 2002 on an edition of Smackdown... BROOOOCK LESNAAAR made Hulk Hogan TAP OUT before absolutely DECIMATING HULK HOGAN to a goddamn PULP!!

    Cheers can be heard for the mention of The Hulkster.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    You thought I was finished? There is ONE legend in the WWE that has been an arch rival for both my client and The Viper... and that mysterious Phenom is none other than THE UNDERTAKER! At Wrestlemania 21- when Randy Orton had the chance to break The Undertaker's streak whilst Undertaker's record was only at 12-0... what did you do Orton? YOU LOST!! But I'm sure EVERYBODY knows that when MY CLIENT went one on one with The Phenom... what happened? My client became the 1 in 21-1! BROOOOOCK LESNAAAAAR BROKE The Undertaker's undefeated streak at Wrestlemania 30!!

    Boos are heard for the mention of The Undertaker's undefeated streak being broken by Lesnar.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    And Randy Orton REALLY thinks that he's prepared? You think you're ready, huh?! Well let me tell you this... nobody can EVER be ready for MY CLIENT. The Conqueror is a whole different breed to EVERYBODY on this roster. There isn't a SINGLE superstar that can match up to what my CLIENT does in this ring or the Brock-Tagon... and when Summerslam is over and done with... WHEN The Beast absolutely PUMMELS Randy Orton in the middle of that ring- I've got the perfect explanation as to what will happened after. Because Randy... your kids are going to have to look into your eyes... and they'll be wondering- why couldn't you beat the big baddie? The big bad MONSTER that everybody is so damn afraid of? And who knows... maybe your kids will feel ashamed of their own father because he couldn't defeat The Beast...

    Or maybe your kids will look up to BROOOOOOCK LESNAAAAAAAAR as their DADDY!!

    'OOOOHHHHH' can be heard from the fans as Heyman begins to chuckle to himself. The fans then begin to shower Heyman with mixed reactions again as Heyman as the rivalry between Lesnar/Orton just gets even more personal. Heyman drops his mic, and he's thinking of exiting the ring...



    RKO TO PAUL HEYMAN!!! RKO FROM OUTTA NOWHERE!!

    The fans ERUPT with a huge pop as a hooded RANDY ORTON RKO'S PAUL HEYMAN!! Heyman has been dropped- as Cole says that a hooded Orton just came out from out in the crowd- and he stalked Heyman like a true viper. Ranallo screams MAMMA MIA as Randy Orton has invaded Monday Night Raw! The Legend Killer begins to smile to himself, looking vicious as ever. The crowd cheer Orton on, despite him being a Smackdown Live Superstar- and Orton looks down at Heyman...

    The Viper begins to stalk Paul Heyman. Graves says that this isn't gonna end well for Paul Heyman! Orton's face turns serious as ever, as he begins to line Paul Heyman up for a very devastating move... California begins to cheer as Orton teases the Punt Kick- and Cole says that Orton is going to DESTROY Paul Heyman! Orton looks to send a message to Brock Lesnar as he's set to hit the move...


    STEPHANIE MCMAHON:
    STOP RIGHT THERE!!

    A familiar voice in Stephanie McMahon can be heard- as the camera cuts to the stage as we see security coming out- lead by none other than Raw's General Manager in Daniel Bryan as well as the Commissioner herself! Orton decides against doing the move, knowing full well he has sent a powerful message to his rival tonight as security enter the ring... But at the same time- Orton also exits, with the predator catching his prey tonight with an RKO! Orton hops over the barricade, and runs up the stairs to the door as Stephanie McMahon & Daniel Bryan look visibly angry following Orton's actions. Orton reaches the door, but he turns around- all eyes on him as Orton looks over to the Raw management...



    And Orton does his signature pose to another HUGE pop from the fans as Orton taunts the Raw brand. Orton exits as Stephanie McMahon & Daniel Bryan are NOT happy at all. They look at each other with a serious look- possibly contemplating what's next as go to our first break.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The cameras cut back to the Honda Center as we see the trio on commentary! Ranallo hypes up how we had an eruptive interruption from The Viper as Randy Orton invaded Monday Night Raw to RKO Paul Heyman!! Footage from the opening segment is shown. Cole says that Orton was set to finish Heyman off, teasing to hit the Punt Kick- a move which has destroyed many careers. Graves says that Heyman was very lucky that security came out with Daniel Bryan & Stephanie McMahon as The Viper sent a big message to The Beast! However, up next- we have singles action as Dolph Ziggler goes one on one with the #1 contender to the Intercontinental Champion- Cesaro!

    HERE TO SHOW THE WORLD

    The music of Dolph Ziggler blasts on the sound system as Ziggler comes out to a huge pop from the fans! Ziggler makes his way to the ring- ready for action as Cole talks about how Ziggler defeated Darren Young last week- and defeating The Swiss Cyborg would be huge for his momentum. Ziggler enters the ring, as he waits for his opponent.

    MIRACLE

    The Honda Center explodes with more pops for The Swiss Cyborg as Cesaro comes out to the stage! The fans can be seen holding up Cesaro Section signs. Cesaro is wearing his black robe with red and white lines as the fireworks go off behind him, and he makes his way to the ring. Ranallo says that Cesaro has a lot of pressure on him tonight- but he has a huge amount of momentum, and the Cesaro Section are behind him.

    Match 1: Dolph Ziggler vs. Cesaro

    Finish:
    The opening match tonight is very back and forth as Ziggler & Cesaro put on a fantastic match tonight. It has gone on for 13 minutes so far as both men have hit a great amount of offense on each other. Back to the action, Ziggler has Cesaro locked in the Sleeper Hold as he looks to make The Cyborg tap out. Cesaro is trying his hardest to break out of the hold, but Ziggler continues to tighten the hold to inflict more pain.

    Cesaro uses his strength to take control as the move is eventually broken- with Cesaro running and smashing Ziggler's back onto the turnbuckle behind him. Ziggler has let go off the hold- as Cesaro charges back at Ziggler with a Bicycle Kick as he hits Ziggler on the head! Cesaro then grabs Ziggler, and puts him in position for a Neutralizer- and as Cesaro goes to nail it, Ziggler wriggles his way out of it before rolling Cesaro up into a Small Package!! 1... 2... BUT CESARO KICKS OUT! Ziggler is shocked as he thought he had it in the bag- and the tension in this match increases.

    Ziggler gets back up, and he lines Cesaro up for a Superkick. He begins to repeatedly kick the ring as the fans anticipate the finisher. He waits for The Swiss Superman to get up, as he eventually does so- and Cesaro turns around... Ziggler goes for the Superkick- but Cesaro sees it coming! Cesaro grabs Ziggler's foot, before kicking him in the mid-section, and he grabs hold of Ziggler's other foot...

    AND ZIGGLER'S ABOUT TO GO SWINGING!!

    1.... 2.... 3.... 4... 5...

    The fans erupt as Cesaro begins to swing Ziggler round in the air- trying to make Ziggler dizzy as possible. Ranallo points out how Cesaro is getting dizzy himself, but he isn't backing down!

    6.... 7.... 8.... 9... 10...

    And Cesaro eventually drops Ziggler as Ziggler begins to crawl over the ropes- head draped onto the second rope. Cesaro begins to hype himself up again as the fans cheer, and Cesaro runs towards Ziggler...

    SWISS-1-9!! The fans explode with a pop as Cesaro hits the signature, in homage to Rey Mysterio- as Ziggler lands in the centre of the ring... but Cesaro isn't finished! Cesaro is behind the ropes, as he looks to springboard himself- and he jumps off the ropes to go for a Springboard Uppercut with the fans looking in awe... BUT ZIGGLER NAILS CESARO WITH A JUMPING DDT!! The fans go nuts as Ziggler blasts Cesaro onto the canvas with a quick move, and the two men are down. California begins to chant 'THIS IS AWESOME!' as neither Ziggler & Cesaro are responding.

    Ziggler looks over at Cesaro, and he knows he has to try and get an arm over him for a pinfall- but Cesaro moves closer to the ropes which dismisses any chance of Ziggler getting a pin. This leads to Ziggler also grabbing hold of the ropes, in an attempt to pick himself back up. Cesaro is also doing the same- as neither men are giving up, but Ziggler's the one who is up first. Ziggler looks set to for a Zig Zag as he waits for Cesaro to get up- and Ziggler goes for a Zig Zag...

    But Cesaro dodges the move- and he grabs hold of The Show-Off before lifting him up and throwing him into the air...

    EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!!

    The effects of the move could be heard all around The Honda Center as Cesaro has the momentum on his side. Cesaro begins to motion for the finisher, as a drowsy Cesaro grabs hold of Ziggler. He places Ziggler's head in-between his legs, and he begins to do his signature taunt. He lifts Ziggler up...

    NEUTRALIZER TO DOLPH ZIGGLER!! The fans cheer as Cesaro goes for the cover! 1... 2... 3! And Cesaro gets the win!

    Spoiler:

    WINNER: CESARO


    The fans cheer loudly as The Swiss Cyborg picks up another big win on the road to Summerslam! Cesaro begins to celebrate as fans are heard roaring for him, and the referee raises Cesaro's hand in the air. Cesaro looks over to the other side, as he notices Ziggler looking disappointed with the loss. Cesaro walks over to Ziggler as Ziggler is slowly getting back up to his feet, still dejected with the loss. Cesaro looks to Ziggler as Ziggler looks up. Cesaro offers his hand, and Ziggler doesn't hesitate to shake it with the fans cheering. The two men show their respect for each other, and Ranallo says that this is great sportsmanship. Ziggler exits the ring, leaving Cesaro on his own- and he walks over to the corner before grabbing a mic to speak.

    CESARO:
    So last week, Daniel Bryan made a huge announcement that my match against The Miz will be a Last Chance Match.. which means that Summerslam will be make or break for The Swiss Cyborg.

    Cesaro looks determined.

    CESARO: This match will be my final chance to win the championship that I have been working so hard to capture from The Miz. I've spent the last FOUR months, scratching and clawing for a title that I just can't manage to win. So maybe The Miz is right.. maybe there is no hope for me... maybe I simply don't deserve to be Intercontinental Champion.

    Cesaro shows frustration on his face, knowing that he has done a lot to try and gain that title- but to no avail. The fans look on in sympathy.

    CESARO:
    But let's go back to last week's Raw again, when The Miz had a lot to say about me... and it really made me think. He showed footage of all my losses for the Intercontinental title... and he tried to make me look like I didn't deserve this title shot. And I'm not going to sit here and lie- yes, I have lost multiple chances to win that championship. But The Miz didn't show ALL the footage from those clips.

    Cesaro points at the TitanTron, as it shows Payback 2016 on May 1st 2016. We see Cesaro having The Miz locked in the Crossface- before Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens begin to brawl on the apron. The Miz taps out, but the referee is distracted by Zayn & Owens. This leads to Cesaro knocking Zayn & Owens off the apron, before The Miz rolls Cesaro up- and grabs the tights to win. The camera cuts back to Cesaro as he grins, and the fans boo.

    CESARO: So what do we have there? The Miz might have grabbed a handful of my tights to roll me up for the win, but I had him BEAT! If it wasn't for Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens brawling on the apron- that title would've been mine. I had The Miz locked in the Crossface, and I made him tap out like a little bitch.

    The fans cheer loudly as Cesaro continues.

    CESARO: But that's not all.

    We see footage from the Fatal Four Way Match at Extreme Rules 2016 on May 22nd 2016 as we see Cesaro having The Miz locked in a Sharpshooter- and The Miz did indeed tap again but Maryse distracted the referee so he didn't see it. Shortly after this, we see Miz pinning Cesaro as Owens & Zayn brawled. The camera cuts back to Cesaro as he pretends to look confused.

    CESARO:
    So it's not just ONCE that I have made the Intercontinental Championship tap out... I've made him tap out TWICE! But The Miz had his beautiful wife there to help him out with a distraction, so the referee didn't see- yet again.

    More footage is shown, from Smackdown on May 26th 2016 as The Miz brought the ICT Championship into the ring. After this, the referee goes to get rid of the title- but The Miz exposes a turnbuckle before Cesaro crashes onto it with his shoulder, which leads to Miz getting the win. The camera shows The Swiss Cyborg again, as he begins to get serious.

    CESARO: So Miz, I know you can hear me. I want to take the time to say... that you're right. I DID lose three matches with that championship on the line. You HAVE pinned me three times. But you know as well as I do... that I didn't simply just lose those matches. I was SCREWED. You ROBBED me out of my opportunities, because you took shortcut after shortcut- but at Summerslam?

    There WON'T be ANY shortcuts!!

    Cesaro speaks with passion as the fans begin to cheer him on.

    CESARO: I'm ready for any tactic that you have up your sleeve, because I know it's not going to be enough. You also spoke about how I don't connect with the WWE Universe, and I had to explode after that. But I will stand in the middle of this ring, and ask these people myself. Does Cesaro connect with the WWE Universe?

    The fans EXPLODE with cheers- with many Cesaro Section signs being held up again, showing the support that the WWE Universe has for Cesaro.

    CESARO:
    There's your answer Miz- and that's the answer for ANYBODY who thinks that I don't connect. The fact of the matter is- the moment that I step foot into this ring- I always connect and deliver. I am the best wrestler on this damn roster- and I DARE somebody to tell me different while I'm standing in the room.

    More fighting talk from The Swiss Cyborg as the fans are loving it.

    CESARO: I'm going to prove The Miz wrong... and I'm going to show anyone else who has doubted me throughout my career that they were wrong because at Summerslam? I KNOW that these 4 months of dedication for that title will pay-off. And with the Cesaro Section behind me...

    I WILL become the NEW Intercontinental Champion!!

    Cesaro drops the mic as the California crowd is fully behind him tonight. Ranallo talks about how Cesaro just made a statement on the mic- and he isn't going to let The Miz' words get to him. Cesaro begins to pose in the ring for the fans...

    POURQUOI

    But the music of Maryse hits with a loud negative reaction from the fans. The wife of the Intercontinental Champion comes out to the stage- as Cesaro looks on in confusion. Maryse begins to do some poses on the stage, before she bursts into a fit of laughter...

    AND CESARO GETS ATTACKED FROM BEHIND!! The fans begin to boo loudly as the individual is none other than the Intercontinental Champion himself, as The Miz clocked Cesaro in the back of the head with the title! The Miz begins to erupt as he brutally punches Cesaro in the head, before picking him up, whilst Maryse makes her way to the ring- with her involvement being part of the ruse. The Miz looks into Cesaro's eyes, and screams 'Is this is what you want?!' before picking Cesaro up- and throwing him out of the ring!

    Graves says that The Miz has exploded tonight as Cesaro was beaten up already following his match with Dolph Ziggler- and now The Miz is adding insult to injury! Maryse cheers her husband on as the Intercontinental Champion grabs Cesaro with a devious look on his face... and he THROWS Cesaro into the barricade as Cesaro screams. Miz is set to grab Cesaro again... BUT CESARO FIGHTS BACK!

    The fans cheer as Cesaro & Miz begin to trade shots...

    CESARO!
    MIZ!
    MIZ!
    CESARO!

    Maryse's face turns to fear... but The Swiss Cyborg is simply too tired- and The Miz takes advantage of this by moving out of the way as Cesaro hits the air. Miz grabs a hold of Cesaro again... before Cesaro CRASHES into the steel steps to boos from the fans. But he isn't done... Cole says that The Miz needs to stop- but Miz picks his opponent for Summerslam up- and he puts him in position for his finisher. Cole says that this isn't gonna end well... SKULL CRUSHING FINALE TO CESARO!!

    Loud jeers from the fans as Maryse exits the ring- and joins her husband. The Miz gets back up to his feet, and he picks up his title- before shouting the words 'YOU DON'T HAVE WHAT IT TAKES!' whilst looking down on Cesaro. The Miz stands tall outside the ring, before looking to his wife with a smug look on his face... and he kisses his wife whilst the fans shower the romantic gesture with huge boos.


    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The camera immediately cuts to the announcers table as we get a recap of Cesaro defeating Dolph Ziggler- before being attacked by The Miz! Cole says that was a very cowardly move from The Miz. Graves replies that The Miz is doing everything in his power to prevent Cesaro's chances of winning at Summerslam- and Ranallo responds, as he says that there isn't a doubt that The Swiss Cyborg will look for payback.

    We head backstage and we see The Miz & Maryse walking in the parking lot with their bags with the fans booing again. However, they are interrupted by the GM of Raw in Daniel Bryan who looks even more angrier than The Miz looked tonight. Miz notices that Bryan is following him, but he ignores him as he continues to walk away with Maryse.

    DANIEL BRYAN: Miz! Don't you think about walking away from me.

    The Miz & Maryse turn around as Bryan speaks again.

    DANIEL BRYAN:
    You don't think that me & Stephanie have enough on our plates tonight?! What you just did out there to Cesaro? That's not okay at all! You two will have your match at Summerslam- so why are you going out there and causing unnecessary problems for?

    The Miz begins to laugh.

    THE MIZ: Why am I causing unnecessary problems?! Daniel... that's rich coming from you! Last week- you made the most stupidest announcement. You REALLY booked The Miz vs. Cesaro in a LAST CHANCE MATCH?! Do you know what that means? That means that I, the greatest Intercontinental Champion of ALL TIME won't get a damn rematch clause if I lose!

    Miz speaks with frustration as Bryan continues.

    DANIEL BRYAN:
    If you lose? When you say IF... then that means that you think there is a possibility that you will lose against Cesaro. Is that what it is? Are you so scared of Cesaro that you have to attack him so he doesn't walk into Summerslam?

    Maryse steps in, not happy with Daniel.

    MARYSE: My husband is not scared of anybody!

    DANIEL BRYAN:
    Okay. That's fine, that's fine by me. If you aren't scared, then prove it at Summerslam! And I'm just going to let you know, that at Summerslam? Maryse is going to be banned from ringside.

    The fans can be heard cheering as Maryse reacts in shock. She looks at The Miz- and he begins to shout towards Bryan's direction as the GM is walking off.

    THE MIZ: YOU CAN'T DO THAT DANIEL!!

    The Miz continues to look in in anger as the camera cuts back to the arena.

    GOLD-LUST

    The music of Goldust blares on the speakers as the fans respond with a light pop. The Bizzare One makes his way to the ring- with his tag team partner R-Truth walking behind him. Ranallo states that Goldust is in action- and he's looking to get a singles win tonight following Golden Truth's recent losses.

    HELLFIRE

    The lights go out as a single spotlight shines on Sheamus as he has his face towards the stage. The fans begin to boo loudly as Sheamus turns around, and The Celtic Warrior makes his way to the ring. Cole states that Sheamus is also looking for a win tonight- and he adds the fact that Sheamus has history with Goldust, as they had personal issues from the WWECW days! Sheamus enters the ring as the two superstars go one on one.

    Match 2: Goldust vs. Sheamus

    Finish: A fantastic bout between these two superstars as Sheamus looked to take all his anger out on Goldust- with the anger coming from his recent losses. Goldust didn't look out of place one bit- and there were many 'You Still Got It!' chants for The Bizarre One. Back to the match, Sheamus goes for a shot to the face- but Goldust grabs Sheamus' arm before kicking The Celtic Warrior in the mid-section. Goldust grabs Sheamus, and he goes for an Irish Whip which sends Sheamus crashing into the corner. Goldust charges at Sheamus with a Clothesline- and he goes for it but Sheamus manages to move out of the way as Goldust hits the turnbuckle!

    But as Sheamus has his back towards Goldust, The Bizzare One looks to take advantage as he gets up on the turnbuckle- body towards Sheamus... he waits for Sheamus to get up as he does so- and Goldust leaps... DIVING HURICANRANA!! The fans go nuts as Goldust then goes for the cover. One... Two... BUT SHEAMUS KICKS OUT. The fans can't believe it, and neither can Goldust- as Goldust slowly gets back up. He grabs Sheamus by the hair- but Sheamus shoves Goldust before grabbing his arm- and putting it over Sheamus' head before Sheamus lifts him up... SNAP SUPLEX TO GOLDUST!

    Goldust winces in pain, before crawling over to the corner to regroup as Sheamus walks over to him. Goldust blasts Sheamus in the face with an elbow as Sheamus takes a step back, and Goldust goes to charge towards Sheamus... BUT SHEAMUS NAILS A BROGUE KICK!! Goldust lands on the canvas as Sheamus goes for the cover... One.. Two... THREE! Sheamus gains the victory!!


    Spoiler:

    WINNER: SHEAMUS


    After the match, Sheamus begins to celebrate his victory as Goldust stirs before rolling out of the ring. R-Truth tends to his partner as Graves says that this is Sheamus' first win since being drafted to Monday Night Raw. Cole says that Sheamus proved to be the more dominant one in this match tonight as we head to another break.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The cameras immediately go backstage as we see Charly Caruso.

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    Ladies and gentleman, please welcome my guest at this time- The Franchise of the WWE... John Cena!

    California roars loudly as the cameras zoom out- to reveal John Cena standing next to Charly Caruso. Some boos can also be heard.

    CHARLY CARUSO: Last week on Smackdown Live, AJ announced that he would indeed walk into Brooklyn on his own. But during that same Bullet Club segment- AJ Styles had plenty to say about you. He stated that you were all about yourself, and he labelled you as a puppet to Vince McMahon that steals the spotlight from others. What were your thoughts on this?

    Cena chuckles.

    JOHN CENA: Truth be told Charly- I heard everything that AJ had to say about me last week, but I'm not surprised-nor do I care about what The Bullet Club think of me. But what I DO have a problem with- is the fact that AJ Styles has said the same thing as what EVERYBODY that has came before him have been saying to me for the last decade.

    I'M a puppet to Vince McMahon? Let's not get it twisted, I'm a company man but how does that make me a puppet? AJ is Bullet Club for LIFE whereas I'm WWE for LIFE! I'm loyal to the WWE, and I didn't need to enter a million independent promotions to prove myself when I have been proving myself in one place, and one place only.

    Caruso nods but Cena isn't done.

    JOHN CENA: It doesn't bother me one bit that AJ and his goons are taking shots- because they're the almighty Bullet Club- of course they're gonna take shots! AJ has accomplished so much outside of WWE whilst being part of The Bullet Club.. I'm not gonna dispute that. But the real question is... can he do it without The Bullet Club? AJ says that it's just me & him.. so at Summerslam? AJ better bring his A-game because I'm walking into that match with the mentality of a goddamn RPG!

    ???: If it ain't The Face That Runs The Place- John Cena, what's up?!

    Cena & Caruso look over as the camera zooms out to reveal... Titus O'Neil?! O'Neil is standing next to Cena with a huge smile on his face, as Cena looks confused.

    TITUS O'NEIL: I apologize for interrupting your interview- but I hope I can make up for that with a proposition of a lifetime! You know John... you've been the face of this company for over a decade! You just said it yourself... you're loyal... you're a COMPANY man! But maybe.. maybe there should be some change? We're in a new era which personifies change.. so with a new era... maybe there could be... a NEW John Cena?!

    Cena begins to laugh loudly- mocking Titus. Caruso walks away, leaving just Cena & O'Neil on their own as O'Neil's grin disappears.

    TITUS O'NEIL:
    Whatchu laughing at John?! I'm being serious... imagine the possibility! John Cena & Titus O'Neil! John Cena representing the USA in TITUS WORLDWIIIIIDE- we can dominate the entire WWE!! I'm about to build an empire John.. TITUS WORLDWIIIIIIIDE is gonna be a huge movement... even better than the likes of McDonalds & KFC! And I couldn't think of anything better... or anyone better to join this brand than John Cena himself! So what do you say Mr. Franchise?

    Cena stops laughing, before responding.

    JOHN CENA: Are you kidding me Titus? I appreciate the offer- but I'm gonna have to say no pal.

    TITUS O'NEIL: Why would I be kidding? Oh you know what Cena... Maybe AJ Styles is right! Maybe you ARE a puppet! So FORGET it... 'cause you probably would have tried to make my brand all about yourself anyway... calling it something stupid like Cenation or John Cena WORLDWIIIDE!

    The two men begin to get serious as Cena looks O'Neil in the eye.

    JOHN CENA: Oh yeah? Well why don't we put Titus Worldwide to the test, huh? You & me out there, in the ring tonight. Let's see what Titus Worldwide is all about.. let's see if you can put your money where your mouth is!

    O'Neil gets in Cena's face.

    TITUS O'NEIL: You're on. You can laugh at me all you want Cena- but I ain't gonna let NOBODY take MY brand for a joke.

    The two men stare off- as Titus clearly has a point to prove, and the cameras cut back to the announcers table.

    Ranallo talks about how Titus O'Neil vs. John Cena sounds like a very intriguing match, with O'Neil looking to back his brand of Titus WORLDWIIIIIDE- and prove that it's not a joke! Graves says that he doesn't fancy O'Neil's chances, and Cole responds that anything could happen.

    A video package is then shown- hyping up Summerslam, and we see shots of various superstars from Raw such as John Cena, Brock Lesnar & Dean Ambrose. More shots of superstars are shown, but from Smackdown- as we see the likes of AJ Styles, Randy Orton & Finn Balor. We then see the date of Summerslam which says 21st August 2016. The clip ends as cameras cut back to the arena, and O'Neil vs. Cena is up next.

    MAKING MOVES

    Titus O'Neil's music hits as The Real Deal comes out to a light pop from the fans, whilst some boos can be heard. O'Neil makes his way to the ring as Cole states that he is the CEO of Titus WORLDWIIIIIIDE and he's looking to prove John Cena wrong tonight. O'Neil enters the ring as he waits for his opponent.

    MY TIME IS NOW

    California erupts with a HUGE mixed reaction for The Franchise as John Cena comes out. Cena stands on the stage, as Ranallo says that Cena is soaking in all the reactions regardless of whether it's good or bad. Cena makes his way to the ring, as O'Neil looks on- and the referee calls for the bell!

    Match 3: John Cena vs. Titus O'Neil

    Finish:
    This match has surprisingly gone on for 7 minutes as both men have took each other to their absolute limits. John Cena has been great as usual- but Titus O'Neil was the real story here tonight as he has been aggressive and focused. Back to the action, Cena & O'Neil begin to trade shots in the ring. O'Neil goes for a huge shot to the face but Cena sees it coming before he grabs O'Neil's fists, and he pushes him. O'Neil charges at Cena but Cena grabs O'Neil's head... and DROPS HIM WITH A DDT!

    The fans begin to chant 'Let's Go Cena' and 'Cena Sucks' as O'Neil is on the canvas. Cena looks up to the crowd, and brings up his fist. He runs from one side to another, before running back to O'Neil- and doing his 'You Can't See Me' taunt before going to nail the Five Knuckle Shuffle... but O'NEIL moves out of the way- and he ROLLS UP CENA!

    ONE... TWO... BUT CENA KICKS OUT! The fans cheer as Cena kicks out, whilst some members of the crowd are taking in the shock. The two men are back on their feet- but O'Neil grabs Cena's arm- and he sends him to the corner. O'Neil looks back at Cena- and O'Neil charges at Cena... BODY AVALANCHE! O'Neil hits the move as Cena stumbles to the centre. O'Neil spins Cena around before putting him position for a finisher... CLASH OF THE TITUS!! O'Neil goes for the cover. One... Two... BUT CENA KICKS OUT AGAIN!! The fans are in awe as O'Neil can't believe it!!! Ranallo says that the tension just continues to increase.

    O'Neil gets up- not having a clue what to do whilst Graves says that Super Cena is active! O'Neil begins to look at Cena with a shock look on his face, not knowing what his next move is. O'Neil grabs Cena before picking him up- looking to nail his finisher again as his next move... but Cena FIGHTS BACK! Cena fights out of the attempted Clash of the Titus before Cena regains control, he grabs O'Neil... ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT!! Cena goes for the cover. One.. Two... THREE!!

    Spoiler:

    WINNER: JOHN CENA

    John Cena celebrates his victory tonight as the California crowd cheers The Franchise on. The referee raises Cena's hand in the air. On the other hand, Titus O'Neil is slowly getting back up to his feet as Cena notices this. O'Neil is up as Cena walks over to him- before grabbing his hand... and raising it in the air to a nice pop from the fans.

    Ranallo says that O'Neil gave Cena a great fight tonight- and whilst he didn't win, Cena is acknowledging the fact that Titus Worldwide isn't a joke if O'Neil was willing to fight for it. Graves says that he still doesn't see what the hype is behind Titus Worldwide- but Cole sticks up for O'Neil by saying that Titus Worldwide has big potential. Cena exits the ring, before we head to a commercial.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    We're back from a break as the cameras immediately cut to Cole, Ranallo & Graves on commentary. Cole talks about how before Raw began- Mike Rome had the chance to interview American Alpha ahead of their HUGE Tag Team Championship match at Summerslam. Ranallo says that American Alpha won a Tag Team Turmoil match last week to earn the right to face The New Day at Summerslam. Graves says that it's time to go sit-down interview area as we hear what American Alpha have to say!

    The cameras cut backstage on the TitanTron- as we see Mike Rome in the sit-down interview room.

    MIKE ROME:
    Ladies and gentleman, I would like to welcome to you- the #1 contenders to the WWE Tag Team Championships... American Alpha!

    We see Chad Gable & Jason Jordan as California cheers very loudly.

    MIKE ROME:
    So last week, you guys earned the right to compete for the WWE Tag Team Championships at Summerslam by winning a Tag Team Turmoil. This match will be your very first PPV match- so how does all this feel for you?

    Gable smiles as he responds.

    CHAD GABLE:
    Everything is just so... overwhelming. We came into the main roster from NXT, and we were drafted to the Raw brand. We won our debut match against The Spirit Squad, before winning the Tag Team Turmoil. It's just crazy man- it feels like it's all happened so quickly, but I'm not complaining. I wouldn't have it any other way because the moment we stepped foot into the big leagues, we were destined to dominate.

    JASON JORDAN: Gable's right- we're competing for the tag team titles in our first PPV match. Our PPV debut will be at Summerslam... in front of 15,000 fans in the Barclays Center. This is our dream.. and without a shadow of a doubt... this is the biggest match of our careers. We've tasted the tag team titles before over on NXT. We know how it feels to taste success... and we just want to get another shot at being at the top again.

    Rome speaks.
    MIKE ROME: That's great to hear guys- it's great to see just how much this match means to you. Currently, the Tag Team Champions are none other than The New Day! They have held the titles for 351 days as they broke a record- and they will be also be your opponents in Brookyln. Can I get your thoughts on The New Day, how do you feel about Kofi, Xavier & Big E as a trio?

    Jordan speaks as fans can be heard chanting 'New! Day Rocks!'

    JASON JORDAN: The New Day... they have been the most dominant trio in the WWE after The Shield broke up. They came into the Tag Team division, and they made a name for themselves. Each men brings something different to the team. Kofi Kingston has the experience. Big E brings the strength and power whilst Xavier Woods is very quick, and he's full of agility. But the one thing all three guys in common... is that they can talk.

    Jordan looks at Gable as the two men begin to laugh- as does Rome.

    CHAD GABLE:
    But seriously... we have nothing but respect for The New Day because there isn't a doubt that they are sharp and versatile when it comes to that ring. They have been dominant from the start. There's a reason why they have been the longest reigning Tag Team Champions, and they've beaten every team put in front of them... but the only reason why that is?

    It's because they haven't faced us.

    Gable looks confident with his words.

    JASON JORDAN:
    That's right- don't get us wrong, we respect The New Day like my partner said- but like them, we're in this for the long run. We're not backing down from this challenge- because this WILL be a huge challenge for us. The New Day are full of jokes and laughter- but we know as well as they do that when it comes to the ring? They are a force to be reckoned with.

    MIKE ROME:
    You guys seem very confident for Summerslam. I'm going to ask you guys one last question... how do you both fancy your chances of becoming the Tag Team Champions in your PPV debut?

    CHAD GABLE:
    You know what Mike- anything can happen. But like The New Day... we like to stay positive. American Alpha & The New Day will both be VERY confident heading to this match... and of course we are looking to win this match- but there's one thing we can promise you.. is that both teams will tear the house down with this match.
    JASON JORDAN: We are a hungry tag team.. and like Mauro Ranallo said- we are truly the hottest tag team in the WWE today. The New Day are exceptional... but so are we. Magic will happen when this match takes place- and we're walking into this match with our A game- and we're gonna walk out as the NEW Tag Team Champions! Because at Summerslam? American Alpha are going to be...

    The two men look at each other as Gable brings out their rally towel.

    BOTH: Ready... Willing... And Gable!

    The fans can be heard cheering again as American Alpha smile, with the two men being full of confidence on the road to Summerslam. Meanwhile, the cameras cut backstage as we see the Tag Team Champions- The New Day to a huge pop! The New Day are watching the monitor in front of them showing American Alpha's interview. The New Day look on with a very serious look on their face, as they nod in approval- looking ready for the challenge. Ranallo speaks- and he says that The New Day are in action, and that will be up next!

    "OOOOOHHHHHHH ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA

    DON'T YOU DARE BE SOUR!

    CLAP FOR YOUR LONGEST REIGNING CHAMPS

    AND FEEEEEEEEEEL THE POWEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRR!!!

    It's a New Day... YES IT IS!"


    NEW DAY, NEW WAY

    The fans go absolutely crazy tonight as the Tag Team Champions come out with mics in hand! The New Day members all have 3 unicorn headbands on. The three men start to dance around as they make their way to the ring- before speaking on the mic whilst they walk down.

    KOFI KINGSTON: OHHHHHHHHHHHHH it's positive in California tonight!

    The fans cheer as Kofi smiles.

    BIG E: Now, tonight will be the first time that The New Day will be in ACTION since Battleground. But I'm sure that the REAAAAAAAL question on the WWE Universe's mind... is WHO are The New Day's opponent for tonight?!

    The three men begin to shout 'WHO?!' as the fans join along.

    XAVIER WOODS: WE have the answer... but... I don't know if y'all are going to like this. You see- we had plenty to say about this team last week. The team that we are facing like to bring... the power of BAD spirit to Monday nights! We dance better than them.. we talk better than them- there isn't NO doubt that we LOOK better than them too!

    Kofi has a face of realization as he looks at Woods.

    KOFI KINGSTON: No... it can't be! You can't be talking about... THE SPIRIT SQUAD?!

    The fans begin to boo at the mention of Spirit Squad as Big E talks.

    BIG E:
    OH HELL NAHHHH! Those damn male cheerleaders?! You've gotta be kidding me!

    XAVIER WOODS:
    There isn't no kidding about it. We're facing The Spirit Squad tonight. BUT- I want to get some facts straight. If Mickey & Kenny think that they have a shot at beating us? They need to think different because The New Day are gonna KICK their BOOTY'S TONIGHT!!

    KOFI KINGSTON:
    Which reminds me- they're in need of some BOOTY-O's because they make sure you ain't BOOTY!

    A nice pop from the fans as The New Day enter the ring. The three men stand in the center as Kofi speaks.
    KOFI KINGSTON: But we're here to talk about something a lot more serious.. our opponents for Summerslam because we will be going two on two against a rising team- also known as the American Alpha!

    Cheers for the mention of American Alpha, as Big E continues.

    BIG E:
    American Alpha... we watched your sit-down interview. We understood everything you had to say... and we appreciate the respect you have for The New Day. And we respect you guys too! You both have accomplished so much in your wrestling career- I mean, Chad Gable? He's a former Olympian!

    The three men in the ring look impressed.
    XAVIER WOODS: And Jason Jordan? He dominated the amateur wrestling scene- so American Alpha aren't rookies. They are two men who are so young yet so talented. They spoke highly of us... they stated that we have dominated the tag team division from the beginning- and they're absolutely right!

    KOFI KINGSTON: BUT... they also said... that the only reason why we have been at the top for so long... is because we haven't faced American Alpha yet!

    The three men all begin to ponder as Big E talks.

    BIG E: I mean... they're right. We haven't faced them yet- but what they are suggesting... is that if American Alpha & The New Day were to go face to face in the middle of this ring... that American Alpha would WIN.

    Kofi nods in disapproval as he speaks.

    KOFI KINGSTON: So American Alpha.. let's just remind y'all a little about something. First things first... you guys have accomplished so much in your wrestling careers- but in the WWE? You are ONLY former NXT Tag Team Champions. But us? The New Day are the TWO TIMES... and CURRENT...

    The three men all look at each other as they begin to shimmy.

    ALL: W... W... E... WORLD... TAG... TEAM... CHAMPIOOOOOOOOOOOONS!!

    Pop from the fans as Woods continues.

    XAVIER WOODS:
    You're damn straight we are! For a WHOLE year... we have RULED this Tag Team division. But make no mistake about... American Alpha are indeed the FUTURE of this tag team division. They have all the tools.. they have ALL the potential in the world. But on the other hand... The New Day are the PRESENT!!

    BIG E: We are living in the NOOWWWW baby! We also have a big chip on our shoulders.. because we BROKE a record to be the longest reigning champions. But now the question is- how long can we keep OUR record going? How long can we keep defending these titles and prove we are the best?!

    KOFI KINGSTON:
    So at Summerslam... it will be the hottest tag team in the WWE going head to head with the BEST tag team in this division today! The temperature is going to heat up at the Hottest Party of the Summer... and as much as we love American Alpha.. we have no choice but to make sure their chances of winning at Summerslam get a little sun-burnt! BECAUSE...

    ALL: NEW! DAY ROCKS!

    The fans begin to chant 'NEW! DAY ROCKS!' loudly along with the trio. Cole talks about how the hype for the tag team title match at Summerslam continues, as The New Day wait for their opponents for tonight.

    TEAM SPIRIT

    The fans begin to respond negatively to the music of Spirit Squad! Kenny & Mickey come out, clearly looking pissed off with The New Day's comments- as the two men make their way to the ring. They are set to fight The New Day already, but the referee stops it as he's about to ring the bell. He eventually rings the bell as Mickey & Kofi are in action!

    Match 4: The Spirit Squad vs. The New Day (c)- Non-Title Match

    Finish: Surprisingly, The Spirit Squad have got a decent amount of offense in- as they have took it to The New Day. But overall, The New Day were the most offensive team in this match as they got the most moves in. Back to the action, it's Big E & Kenny in action. Kenny grabs Big E as he manages to lift Big E for an attempted Belly to Back Suplex- but Big E holds onto the ropes as Kenny is forced to let go.

    Kenny does so, and he walks back to Big E- but Big E comes out with a Clothesline from nowhere! Kenny is on the floor, as Kofi tags himself in! Kofi rushes into the ring, and knocks out Mickey off the apron. Big E lifts Kenny up, and goes for a Big Ending... which leads to a Diving DDT from Kofi... MIDNIGHT HOUR!! The fans cheer as Kofi goes for the cover... and The New Day get the win!


    Spoiler:

    WINNERS: THE NEW DAY


    The New Day celebrate their win tonight as the fans can't help but cheer the champions on! The three men are given their titles as Spirit Squad roll out of the ring following their loss. Cole hypes up how The New Day look even more stronger heading into Summerslam, as the cameras head backstage.

    California EXPLODES with a pop as we see none other than the WWE Champion himself- Dean Ambrose! Ambrose is in a locker room as The Lunatic Fringe is taping his hands up, ready for action. However, Ambrose looks up- and the camera zooms out... and we see Roman Reigns! The fans respond with a mixed reaction as Reigns looks into Ambrose's eyes.

    ROMAN REIGNS:
    So is there anything you'd like to say... to my face?

    Ambrose bites back.

    DEAN AMBROSE:
    Oh Roman... my brother! I could say a lot of things to you.. like how you're not a good guy... you're not a bad guy... you're THE Guy.. and all that crap.. but don't start getting in my face when you fired the first shots at me.

    Reigns doesn't look happy as Ambrose continues.

    DEAN AMBROSE: I'm the one that is always second place to you, remember? So if you're gonna do something... do it now because if you plan on making sure I don't make it to the finish line... I'll make sure you don't even make it to the main event tonight.

    Reigns sighs.

    DEAN AMBROSE: And I am the champ, so...

    ROMAN REIGNS: Okay, enough of all this! Look Dean.. we've said some stupid things- but we need to put that aside. We need to focus on tonight's main event- because we've The Ascension. You said last week on Raw Talk that you didn't wanna be Anti-Roman Reigns, well I don't wanna be Anti-Dean Ambrose.

    Ambrose nods in approval.

    ROMAN REIGNS: The Ascension are serious and dangerous. But the problem with that is... so are we. So let's put this behind us, and go into this Tag Team match as two unstoppable brothers. What do you say?

    Reigns waits for a response as Ambrose looks him in the eye. Ambrose nods in approval as he speaks...

    DEAN AMBROSE: I'm all for it. Let's destroy them Shield style.

    The fans can be heard exploding with cheers as Ambrose puts his hand out. Reigns responds by doing the same as the two men fist-bump, with the two men seemingly being on the same page.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    We head back from commercial as the camera immediately cuts backstage again. We see The Ascension lurking around backstage. There are various catering members and backstage staff that see Konnor & Viktor, as some are looking in fear whereas some are walking away from the devastating duo. However, they are approached by Charly Caruso- who has a mic.

    CHARLY CARUSO: Konnor... Viktor... can I please get a word?

    The Ascension look down on a brave Caruso as she continues to speak.

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    So last week during the Tag Team Turmoil match- you guys were dominating before you got eliminated by Lucha Dragons. You then brutally attacked Kalisto & Sin Cara before they went onto get eliminated. What was going through your minds when you did that?

    Konnor & Viktor look down on Caruso, as they pause- however, they just stand there. Absolute silence. Nothing to do, nothing to say as Caruso feels uneasy.

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    Okay... well you also have a main event tag team match against Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns tonight, who will also be opponents at Summerslam. What exactly is your mind-set heading into that match?

    As Caruso asks the second question, The Ascension pause again- before Viktor gets in Caruso's face.

    VIKTOR: ANNIHILATION!

    Caruso is startled by Viktor's anger as The Ascension walk off, with Konnor & Viktor clearly looking confident for the match.

    We head back to the announcers table as Ranallo talks about how The Ascension vs. Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose is going to be a very huge match, and he expects it to get very physical. Cole agrees. Graves moves on- and says that up next, we have a match with very important stakes, so we're going to show some footage from last week's Raw Talk which helped shape this match.

    Ryback doesn't look impressed at all as Slater continues.

    HEATH SLATER:
    Look last week... I think it's safe to say that things definitely didn't go my way. I had a match against my friend... Bo Dallas- and I don't know what the HELL Bo was playing at- by using the ropes for leverage to beat me.. but that's honestly not on my mind right now. I NEED an opportunity Daniel... I NEED another chance to earn a contract.

    DANIEL BRYAN:
    You do have a very fair point.. and I did indeed watch your match againt Bo Dallas- and he did use the ropes for leverage which gave him the advantage...

    As Slater nods in approval, Ryback cuts in- not happy about Slater's interruption.

    RYBACK:
    Are you being serious? WHO the hell do you think you are.. coming on Raw Talk and interrupting ME?! Do you not know who I am... look me in the eyes- and tell me that you haven't just made a mistake little man.

    As things begin to escalate- Slater isn't backing down.

    HEATH SLATER: To be quite frank Ryback.. I don't give a damn who you are man. But what I do know.. is that you've got your contract. You're assigned to a brand.. so you don't have a problem. I DON'T have a contract for any brand.. and that's the difference right there. You're doing nothing with your chances.. and it's not like Raw was any different without you. Whereas me? I wasn't on the show tonight either- but I had the world chanting 'SIGN HEATH SLATER!' So you wanna know who I think I am? I'm the One Man Band BAAAAABY!! And I'm here for a second chance which I KNOW I deserve.

    DANIEL BRYAN: Okay- that's it guys, let's simmer down for now shall we? Raw Talk is about to end right now, so I'll make another announcement for next week's show. Ryback... you want an opportunity to prove yourself... Slater- you want a shot to earn another contract since you have a viable reason to make your claims.. next week- we will have a match! It will be The One Man Band in Heath Slater taking on Ryback! And Slater... we're gonna do the same as last week. If you win.. you will earn your contract on Raw. But if you don't? Well you're just going to have to start looking for a job elsewhere.

    Slater nods with the opportunity he has just been granted- before walking off from the set. Ryback begins to stare Bryan & Caruso out- as The Human Wrecking Ball also walks off, with a cold look on his face, when really- he's also satisfied with the opportunity.
    Cole says that this match will be Heath Slater's second chance to earn a contract- and it will be a tough task as he goes one on one with The Human Wrecking Ball! That match, is up next!

    MEAT ON THE TABLE

    Ryback's music hits as the fans begin to respond with light boos. The Human Wrecking Ball comes out- and he shouts on the stage that 'It's feeding time!' as he makes his way to the ring. Ranallo talks about how Ryback is the clear favorite in this match, due to his size and strength. Graves says that Slater doesn't stand a chance. As Ryback enters the ring- the fans can be heard chanting 'We Want Slater!' as The Big Guy waits for his opponent...

    ONE MAN BAND

    Surprisingly, California erupts with a loud pop for The One Man Band baby! Heath Slater comes out, as he soaks in all the applause- but he has a serious look on his face which suggests he knows how important this match is to him. Cole says that there is huge pressure on Slater to not just win a contract, but to prove how much he deserves it. Slater enters the ring- and his music stops, as the referee calls for the bell!

    Match 5: Ryback vs. Heath Slater- If Slater wins, he earns a Raw contract

    Finish:
    This bout has been nothing short of excellent. Both men have put up a fantastic fight- with Ryback being the aggressor in the match due to his strength. Meanwhile, Slater has been the underdog- and the fans have been behind him as he is doing all he can to get a spot on Raw. Back to the action, Slater is on the corner as Ryback waits for him to turn around. Slater eventually does so- as Ryback charges at Slater with a Meathook Clothesline... but Slater moves out of the way as Ryback hits the corner...

    SMALL PACKAGE FROM SLATER! 1... 2... BUT RYBACK KICKS OUT! The frustration on Slater's face is clear as he looks over to Ryback. But he doesn't waste no time. Slater waits for Ryback to slowly get up, as he begins to kick the ring to hype up the fans. The fans begin to anticipate Slater's next move as Slater looks to finish Ryback off... Ryback slowly gets up to his feet... SWEETNESS FROM SLATER!! The fans erupt as Slater goes for the cover. 1... 2... BUT RYBACK KICKS OUT AGAIN!!

    The tension is visible here tonight as Ryback kicks out of Slater's finishing move. Slater is just as shocked as the fans here tonight. Slater gets back up, as not even he knows his next move. But Slater walks over to the corner, as he looks to go in the air. He gets up on the turnbuckle, as Ryback slowly gets back up to his feet. Slater launches with a Missile Dropkick... BUT RYBACK GRABS SLATER!! Ryback has Slater in position to finish him off... SHELL SHOCKED!!! Ranallo says that Slater has gone down like a ton of bricks!! Ryback goes for the cover... 1... 2... 3! And this one is over!!


    Spoiler:

    WINNER: RYBACK


    California immediately responds with boos as Ryback begins to celebrate his victory. Ryback begins to laugh to the fans- knowing that he ended Slater's dream. Ryback raises his hand in the air, before exiting the ring. On the other hand, Slater is stirring in the ring. Frustrated about the fact that he couldn't pull it off tonight. Slater rolls out of the ring, as the fans show their sympathy for The One Man Band who has a face of disappointment.

    We go backstage as we see Mike Rome.

    MIKE ROME:
    Please welcome my guest at this time... NIKKI BELLA!

    The camera zooms out, as California ERUPTS with a huge pop for the hometown superstar! Nikki Bella is full of smiles, sporting a 'Fearless' t-shirt as Rome speaks.

    MIKE ROME:
    Nikki- last week, you made your long-awaited return when you made the save for Alicia Fox & Sasha Banks as they were being attacked by Eva Marie, Summer Rae & Alexa Bliss. Why did you get involved in that fight?

    NIKKI BELLA: Well first of all, I'd like to say that it feels GREAT to not just be back on Raw... but also to be in my hometown of CALIFORNIA!

    Fans can be heard cheering as Nikki continues.

    NIKKI BELLA:
    But to answer your question Mike... it's very simple. There were three women against two- and I had to even things up a little. You see.. I have a lot of respect for Sasha Banks & Alicia Fox- and I don't like the way that Eva Marie, Alexa Bliss & Summer Rae have tried to throw their weight around as if they own the place.

    If they want to be the faces of this Womens division, they need to go out to that ring and prove their claims.

    Rome nods.

    MIKE ROME: That's fair enough Nikki. Now, it's no secret that you returned from a grueling neck injury. But now you are back- are you 100% to be competing in the ring again?

    NIKKI BELLA: Of course I am Mike. You see- that neck injury was career threatening. My career could've ended but it didn't. Because I fought hard through it, and I worked harder than ever to make my return. And now? I'm back for my throne.

    I want to be at the top of this Womens division again. I am 100%.. I am fit and healthy- and I've recovered. The last time I stepped foot into this ring- I failed to gain the Divas Championship that I lost the month before my last match. And a lot has changed since then... I feel back at home. And to make my in-ring return in my hometown of California means a lot too. I'm going to put the entire Womens division on notice. Because my name is Nikki Bella... and I'm fearless!

    Nikki walks off, looking excited for her in-ring return as Rome looks on- and we head to another break.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The cameras go backstage again as we see the One Man Band! The fans erupt with loud cheers as Heath Slater is visibly upset and frustrated following his loss to Ryback earlier tonight. Slater is packing his bags in the locker room, as he didn't win a Raw contract tonight. There are many superstars in the locker room, as we see Titus O'Neil & Dolph Ziggler. O'Neil & Ziggler try and comfort Slater by wishing him luck before they walk off.

    However, with two superstars gone- another superstar walks in. Slater looks up again- this time, he rolls his eyes as the camera zooms out to show Bo Dallas! Dallas looks Slater in the eye, with a shit-eating grin on his face.

    BO DALLAS: Heath, please don't be upset man! You gave it your absolutely all tonight.. you did the best that you could- and that's all that anybody can ask from you! But unfortunately for you... your best just wasn't enough to beat Ryback. You simply didn't Bo-Lieve in yourself.

    Slater continues to get more anxious and annoyed by Dallas' presence.

    BO DALLAS:
    You are at your best by being the hottest free agent in wrestling.. But just because you don't have a place on Monday nights- it doesn't mean that it's the end for you! You could always go and sit on your sofa.. put on the WWE Network- and watch all the greatest clips of Heath Slater's moments. But oh wait...

    You don't have any great moments!


    Dallas pats Slater on the back with that same grin on his face- but Slater has had enough. He shoves Dallas before looking him right in the eye.

    HEATH SLATER: You've got FIVE seconds to get the hell out of this room... or I'm gonna give you a ONE MAN ASS KICKING!

    The fans cheer as Dallas does not hesitate one bit- and he walks away from the locker room- leaving Slater on his own. As Slater has finished packing his bags, the fans can be heard 'WE WANT SLATER!' as the cameras head to the announcers table.

    Mauro Ranallo talks about how Slater refused to take any rubbish from Bo Dallas tonight- and the fans are still firmly behind him with their We Want Slater chants! Cole moves on, and he talks about how up next, we have some Womens action as Nikki Bella makes her in-ring return!

    The camera cuts to the ring as we see Raw's very own Blue Pants! Graves states that Blue Pants hasn't won a single match since she debuted on Raw- but Ranallo sticks up for Blue Pants, saying that she has a lot of potential which was shown last week against Summer Rae.

    YOU CAN LOOK, BUT YOU CAN'T TOUCH

    A BIG pop for the hometown superstar tonight as Nikki Bella comes out to the stage! She poses for the fans, and she makes her way to the ring. Cole talks about how Nikki Bella made her return from a neck injury, and she fought hard to come back. We'll see how Nikki fares in the ring tonight! The bell rings as Nikki & Blue Pants go one on one!

    Match 6: Blue Pants vs. Nikki Bella

    Finish:
    A lot of people were expecting a one-sided match, but this match has had the Honda Center arena in awe. Both women have been very offensive, especially Blue Pants- who unleashed more moves from her arsenal to defeat Nikki. Blue Pants has also focused on Nikki's head, following Nikki's recent neck injuries. But on the other hand- Nikki has been just as dominant as Blue Pants, and whilst the ring rust is there- it's nothing Nikki can't shake off.

    Back to the action, we are at the 8:12 mark! Nikki & Blue Pants are grappling as they attempt to gain control, but Nikki shoves Blue Pants- before Blue Pants hits Nikki with a Big Boot to her mid-section! Nikki stumbles back, and Blue Pants continues as she erupts with a Roundhouse Kick! She kicks Nikki hard in the head... but Blue Pants goes for ANOTHER one... and Nikki grabs her leg to block the attempt! Nikki lets go off of Blue Pants- as Blue Pants charges at Nikki again... and Nikki BLASTS Blue Pants with a Forearm Smash!!

    Nikki looks to the crowd, and she hypes herself up as well as the fans. Nikki grabs Blue Pants' legs- before locking her in the Fearless Lock! Ranallo says that this is Nikki's own version of John Cena's STF! Nikki increases the pressure as Blue Pants is in the center of the ring. She tries to wriggle out of it but she can't... and the pain is just too much for Blue Pants to handle as she has no choice but to TAP OUT!!

    Spoiler:

    WINNER: NIKKI BELLA


    Nikki Bella has her hand raised in victory as her hometown crowd continues to cheer for her! Cole says that this was a great performance from Nikki tonight- as she starts her return with a win. Blue Pants rolls out of the ring as Nikki continues to celebrate...

    ???: Nikki... enjoy your victory celebration while it lasts!

    The fans begin to boo as we head over to the stage... and we see the trio of Eva Marie, Summer Rae & Alexa Bliss! Rae has a mic in hand as the three women stand on the stage ready to address Nikki Bella.

    SUMMER RAE:
    Oh Nikki Bella! I want to ask you a question... how the hell do you do it? I'm not quite sure how you come out here.. with a smile on your face- and lie to these people. You told everybody that myself, Alexa, and Eva Marie have tried to throw our weight around like we own the place...

    But the truth is... we DO own this place. We OWN this Womens division, and we have done from the very start. You tried to make yourself look soooooo brave... and soooo courageous. It's such a miracle that you recovered from your "career threatening" injury... isn't it? But everybody has their own opinions... and I'd say that it would have been a whole lot better if Nikki Bella's career ENDED!

    More boos as Summer Rae passes the mic to Alexa Bliss- while Nikki looks very annoyed from the ring. She motions for them to come as Bliss is set to speak, but Blue Pants walks over to the stage as she's just minding her own business. She glares at Bliss as Bliss responds...

    ALEXA BLISS: Ewwwwww.... what the hell are you looking at?

    The fans boo as Blue Pants walks to the back, clearly upset due to Bliss' words.

    ALEXA BLISS:
    What's up Nikki? Are you upset that we aren't fazed by your sob stories? Oh boo-hoo. Grow the hell up, because we don't give a damn about your sob stories. You know what they say... leopards don't change their spots. We can see right through you Nikki because this whole act that you put on is nothing but a charade!

    You've got the WWE Universe fooled! And you might be able to fool them... but you're not going to fool us. This whole 'Fearless' act that you've got going on.. it's simply a cover-up! You don't want people to know the real you.. which is why you're out here with your million smiles and poses to slyly steal opportunities from women like us! Let's face it Nikki.. you haven't changed... you're still the same damn Nikki Bella that you've always been...

    A lying... greedy... manipulative piece of TRASH!


    More boos from the crowd, as Nikki just looks on- with a face of emotion and anger all mixed up. Eva Marie speaks as Nikki continues to listen.

    EVA MARIE: Nikki... you made a mistake last week by sticking your nose where it didn't belong. You pollute the Womens division with your irrelevant vibes every time you step into that ring. You might have been relevant a couple of years ago.. but while you have been injured- things have changed.. but you claim to have changed?

    The fans continue to boo Eva as she gets angry.

    EVA MARIE:
    Well in my eyes... you're nothing but a hypocrite! The WWE Universe are all nothing but hypocrites! Why do you boo me? I'm from California as well- yet you want to show me disrespect while Nikki Bella gets all the attention and the cheers? This is MY hometown.. and California is All... Red... Everything!

    Loud boos as the three women begin to walk down the ramp and Summer speaks.

    SUMMER RAE:
    So Nikki... what we're about to do to you? Please... don't be humiliated by it. Because it's time we give you a welcoming tour back to Monday Night Raw!

    Summer Rae, Alexa Bliss & Eva Marie continue to walk down the ramp as Nikki Bella begins to shout 'BRING IT!' to the trio. The trio are set to gang up on Nikki as they get up on the apron, behind the ropes. They eventually enter the ring as a fight is clearly about to occur...

    PARTY

    But the music of Alicia Fox hits in Honda Center as Foxy comes out to a light pop from the fans to make the save! Alicia runs down the ramp- and walks to the side of the ring where she joins Nikki Bella! The trio of Rae, Bliss & Marie all look on in disgust as Alicia & Nikki begin to taunt them...

    SKY'S THE LIMIT

    A HUGE pop for The Boss as Sasha Banks comes out! Banks begins to make her way to the ring- and she joins Nikki Bella & Alicia Fox as the odds are even now. Everybody in the arena is excited for a fight as Ranallo says Nikki made the save for Fox & Banks last week- and now Fox & Banks are doing the same for Nikki! But as the fight is about to begin...

    Rae, Bliss & Marie all exit the ring! The fans boo loudly as the trio don't want any of this tonight! The trio begin to walk up the ramp to boos from the fans, whilst the trio in the ring begin to motion for a fight...

    FLIGHT OF THE VALKYRIES

    California goes WILD for the music of Daniel Bryan- as the fans begin a 'YES!' chant. Bryan comes out as he raises his hands repeatedly and shouts YES with the fans for a couple of seconds, before looking over to the women. Bryan has a mic in hand, and he's set to speak as Ranallo mentions how calmer Bryan looks from earlier.

    DANIEL BRYAN: Things are clearly heating up in the Womens division! Ever since the brand extension, we were focused on building up our Raw womens division which is why we drafted the women that WE thought were the best.

    And I want to make something clear... I DON'T want a brawl tonight between the women. Now... the reason why I'm out here is very simple.. as I want to make an announcement. The competition is getting tough... and the women need something to fight for. So on August 21st 2016 at Summerslam... we're going to introduce a Raw Womens Championship for Monday nights!!

    Huge pop from the fans as the women all look on, looking satisfied with Bryan's words.

    DANIEL BRYAN: So at The Hottest Party of the Summer... it's going to be a 6-Pack Challenge to determine the FIRST EVER Raw Womens Champion! And that match will consist of... Summer Rae!

    The fans boo.

    DANIEL BRYAN: Alexa Bliss!

    The fans boo again.

    DANIEL BRYAN: All Red Everything... Eva Marie!

    The fans boo even more.

    DANIEL BRYAN:
    Alicia Fox!

    The crowd cheers.

    DANIEL BRYAN: Nikki Bella!

    Even louder cheers for The Fearless one!

    DANIEL BRYAN:
    And The Boss herself... Sasha Banks!

    A huge pop from the fans for The Boss as this pop is definitely the loudest. A graphic on the TitanTron shows all 6 women- with this match being made official!

    DANIEL BRYAN:
    So ladies... I have no doubt that you will bring your absolute best to this PPV. It's nice to see that friendships and enemies are being formed... but at Summerslam- it's going to be every women for HERSELF to become the FIRST ever Raw Womens Champion!!

    Another pop as Bryan begins to chant YES- as do the fans, before Bryan walks to the back. The trio of faces in the ring are happy with the announcement- whereas the heel trio on the ramp look on with a smug look on their faces. Ranallo says that this is huge news, as we crown our inaugural Raw Womens Champion at Summerslam. However, the tension can be felt tonight as the faces all look at each other with a serious look on their face- knowing their alliance will be short-lived.

    The cameras cut to the announcers table as we see Ranallo, Graves & Cole! Ranallo talks about how the arrival of Austin Aries to Monday nights is very exciting- and he can't wait to see The Greatest Man That Ever Lived debut at Summerslam! Graves says that speaking of Aries- they have just received word from Daniel Bryan that Aries' opponent for Summerslam will be revealed next week! Cole questions who Aries' opponent will be at Summerslam- as we have multiple superstars who are not booked for Summerslam, either way- it's going to be great! But moving on, it's time for our main event! Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose team up to take on The Ascension, and that's up next!

    REBELLION

    The lights go dark- and the music of The Ascension blasts in the Honda Center tonight as the fans begin to respond with mixed reactions. Konnor & Viktor come out- as Graves says there they are... the devastating duo! The Ascension stand on the stage for little while, before slowly making their way to the ring as they wait for their opponents.

    TRUTH REIGNS

    The fans respond with another mixed reaction- but this time, with more boos for The Big Dog! Roman Reigns comes out to the stage, and Cole states that Reigns looks fired up tonight as he wait for his partner whilst looking bluntly at The Ascension from the stage...

    RETALIATION

    HUGE POP! California erupts for The Lunatic as Dean Ambrose comes out- with the WWE Championship strapped around his waist. Ambrose joins his brother on the stage, as Ranallo says that Ambrose & Reigns aren't going to let some silly problems get in the way of their brotherhood- and they're going to prove it against The Ascension tonight.

    Ambrose & Reigns enter the ring- as they begin to stare down the opposition. The two teams begin to stare off which generates a huge pop from the fans as they are clearly excited about this clash between two sets of dominating brothers! The referee calls for the bell and the match is on.

    Main Event: The Ascension vs. Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose

    Finish:
    The main event for tonight has gone on for 15 minutes so far as the fans in the Honda Center have been up on their feet throughout this bout. Both teams have gone very back and forth- and there isn't a doubt that all four men have been hard-hitting and brutal in this match. Each team has got a good amount of offense in, as the match continues. The relationship between Reigns & Ambrose has been solid throughout this match, although there has been a case of friendly competition due to the two brothers trying to one-up each other with their offense towards The Ascension,.

    Back to the action, Viktor & Ambrose are the legal men. Viktor goes for a rapid Clothesline to Ambrose as he's set to put the Lunatic down- but Ambrose sees it coming... and he ducks! Ambrose bounces off the ropes as Viktor turns around- and Ambrose charges at Viktor... RUNNING CROSSBODY! Viktor goes down as Ambrose goes for the cover. 1... 2... BUT VIKTOR KICKS OUT!

    Reigns calls for a tag- but Ambrose wastes absolutely no time- and he quickly picks himself back up, hoping to get more offense. He grabs Viktor by the hair- and lifts him back up to his feet... before setting him for Dirty Deeds... but Viktor twists out of it. He immediately gets out of Ambrose's grasp- before hitting Ambrose with a European Uppercut! Viktor rushes over to Konnor... and Viktor makes the tag to Konnor!

    The WWE Champion turns around- and notices Konnor staring straight through him, showing absolutely no emotion whatsoever. The fans begin to cheer Ambrose on- and Roman Reigns can be heard shouting for Ambrose to tag him in, but Ambrose ignores Reigns- and chooses to take the fight to Konnor... but Reigns taps Ambrose on the back with a BLIND TAG!!

    The fans go absolutely nuts with boos as Ambrose looks towards Reigns. Ambrose can be heard mouthing the words 'What the fuck' as Reigns nods at Ambrose with a face of worry. Ranallo says that Reigns was pleading for Ambrose to tag him in- and Reigns' worried face suggests that Reigns didn't think Ambrose could take the fight to Konnor. Reigns enters the ring- and he charges at Konnor as the two men trade shots to the head!

    Reigns
    Konnor
    Konnor
    Reigns
    Konnor

    The two men continue to trade shots as Ambrose looks on at the action- with a face of fury. On the other hand, Reigns for another shot to the face of Konnor but Konnor grabs Reigns' fist before irish whipping him to the corner. Konnor charges at Reigns with a Big Boot as Reigns is on the corner- and he nails it! Reigns begins to wobble over to the centre of the ring as Konnor charges at Reigns with a Clothesline...

    But Reigns ducks as Konnor hits the air- and runs into the ropes. This leads to Konnor turning around as Reigns charges at him... SUPERMAN PUNCH TO KONNOR! Konnor gets knocked over the rope as Reigns exits the ring. Reigns picks Konnor up, and puts him in position for one of his signature moves... and he lines Konnor up before running towards him...

    DRIVE BY!! Reigns drills Konnor in the head with a vicious Drive-By to a mixed reaction from the fans. Chants of 'We Want Ambrose!' are heard as Reigns grabs Konnor. He picks Konnor up- and he takes him near the ramp... but Konnor fights back! The two men begin to trade shots again, as the camera shows Viktor jumping off the apron. Viktor runs towards the action to help his partner up- and The Ascension begin to gang up on Reigns.

    Ambrose notices this- and he groans at the thought of helping Reigns... but he takes advantage as he gets up onto the top rope whilst the chaos is happening outside. Ambrose leaps... SUICIDE DIVE TO THE ASCENSION!!
    Luckily for Reigns, he managed to move out of the way before his partner could hit him- and Graves questions whether Ambrose intended to hit Reigns or not?

    Ambrose slowly gets up again, as he looks very pissed off- and he stares Reigns out. Cole says that these two are wasting precious time with their personal issues. They need to finish The Ascension as quickly as possible! But Reigns continues, and he grabs Konnor before putting him in the ring.

    Reigns enters the ring again, as he looks to win this match for himself & Ambrose. Reigns begins to roar with a mixed reaction from the fans. Reigns waits for Konnor to get up as he looks set to finish him off... he charges towards Konnor... SPEAR TO KONNOR! Reigns goes for the cover as Ranallo says that Reigns has this match won. 1... 2... BUT VIKTOR MAKES THE SAVE!!

    From out of nowhere, Viktor has entered the ring to prevent Reigns from getting the win- and this leads to Ambrose rushing into the ring to take care of the problem. Ambrose begins to brawl with Viktor- and Reigns looks on, looking VERY pissed off with Viktor's interruption. Ambrose & Viktor begin to trade shots as Reigns charges at Viktor with a Spear... but Viktor moves out of the way...




    OH MY GOD!! SPEAR TO DEAN AMBROSE!!! The fans erupt with a LOUD mixed reaction as Reigns can't believe it! Ambrose is OUT on the floor- and Reigns has accidentally hit his own tag team partner!! Reigns notices the mistake, and he looks to Ambrose with a face of shock- whilst Konnor is also slowly getting up. Reigns is fully distracted, as The Ascension compose themselves... and Reigns turns around not knowing what is behind him...

    FALL OF MAN TO ROMAN REIGNS!!! The Ascension BLAST Roman Reigns with their tag team finisher as the fans respond with a mixed reaction. Konnor covers Reigns as Viktor prevents Ambrose from getting up. 1.... 2.... 3!!! The Ascension get the upset victory here tonight!


    Spoiler:

    WINNERS: THE ASCENSION


    The bell rings as The Ascension are announced as the winners! The fans can't believe it as Konnor & Viktor get back up to their feet- and they raise their hands high in the air. Ranallo says that The Ascension have took advantage of Reigns & Ambrose's problems, and now we have an even bigger problem. The Ascension exit the ring- walking out of tonight's Raw with a huge win!

    But on the other hand, Roman Reigns is slowly getting back up to his feet- knowing that his mistake cost him & Ambrose the match. Graves says that Reigns clearly looks very beaten up about it-as Reigns is fully up. He looks over to outside the ring as he sees his partner also getting back up to his feet.

    Ambrose slowly enters the ring- as Reigns looks on. Ambrose uses the ropes to pick himself back up, as Reigns can be seen mouthing the words 'I'm sorry!' as Ambrose looks on. Cole says that Reigns is clearly aware of what he did- and he's apologizing to Ambrose. Reigns walks over to Ambrose, and puts his hand out as Ambrose doesn't hesitate to respond. Ambrose immediately shakes as he assures Reigns there isn't a problem. Reigns tunrs around as he shouts for a mic...




    DIRTY DEEDS TO ROMAN REIGNS!!! The fans ERUPT as the WWE Champion nails his brother with a finisher! Reigns crashes onto the canvas as Ambrose gets back up again, and he picks up his WWE Championship. He looks to the crowd full of hype as the fans cheer him on. Graves says that Ambrose just turned on Reigns tonight- but Ranallo disputes that statement by saying Ambrose clearly hadn't forgotten about Reigns' blind tag as well as The Big Dog's accidental Spear- and this was clearly just a case of one-upping his brother! Ambrose gets up on the turnbuckle- before raising his championship in the air whilst Reigns lays on the floor, with Raw coming to a close!

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



    Smackdown Live Episode Four (New Era) - 09/08/16 - Rabobank Arena, Bakersfield, California.

    Footage from Raw begins to play. It highlights the Paul Heyman promo that kicked-off the show with some harsh words for Randy Orton. The footage then scratches and Randy's Orton's music plays in the background of the video as the Viper is shown now entering the Raw ring to a huge pop and..

    RKO TO PAUL HEYMAN!!! RKO FROM OUTTA NOWHERE!!

    The fans ERUPT with a huge pop as RANDY ORTON RKO'S PAUL HEYMAN!! Ranallo says MAMMA MIA! And he states that Randy Orton has invaded Monday Night Raw! The Legend Killer begins to smile to himself, looking vicious as ever. He erupts with kicks and blows to Heyman as the crowd are loving it!

    The Viper begins to stalk Paul Heyman. Graves says that this isn't gonna end well for Paul Heyman! Orton's face turns serious as ever, as he begins to line Paul Heyman up for a very devastating move... California begins to cheer as Orton teases the Punt Kick- and Cole says that Orton is going to DESTROY Paul Heyman! Orton looks to send a message to Brock Lesnar... but the camera cuts to the stage as we see security coming out- lead by none other than Raw's General Manager in Daniel Bryan as well as Stephanie McMahon!

    Security rush into the ring- as Orton decides against doing the move, knowing full well he has sent a powerful message to his rival tonight. The fans continue to cheer as Orton exits the ring with security escorting him to the back- and Stephanie McMahon & Daniel Bryan look on.

    The video footage then ends and the Smackdown Live intro kicks in to action and the show is live!



    Good ole' "JR" Jim Ross welcome's the fans to another episode of Smackdown Live from Bakersfield, California! He introduces his broadcast partners- Booker T and "JBL" John Bradshaw Layfield. All three men talk about the Randy Orton/Raw situation and how Randy sent a huge message to the Beast- Brock Lesnar at Raw by attacking his advocate- Paul Heyman! "JBL" says Orton stepped across the line and was willing to punt kick Heyman's head of his shoulders! Booker says that Paul Heyman has been talking a lot of trash and his mouth got him in trouble once again- almost this time- it could have been fatal. "JR" says that no doubt about it- it was a shocking and unexpected scene but what will the repercussions be for Orton? Will Brock Lesnar look to respond? Jim Ross says that this is Smackdown Live and when it's live- anything can happen!

    Jim Ross then states that we are going to jump right into some wrestling action as we are kicking off the show with Baron Corbin vs Mark Henry!

    The Tron then goes live and shows the segment between Shane and Baron Corbin last week. It finishes with Baron Corbin demanding a spot in the "WHC" match at SummerSlam before Mark Henry enters the shot and demands some respect from Baron before Shane Mcmahon makes this match. The footage then returns to ringside where the action is about to start.

    Match One: Baron Corbin vs Mark Henry.
    Finish: The crowd are firmly behind Henry who mouth's that he's going to beat some respect out of Baron tonight. Corbin though roll's his eyes, he calls Henry a dinosaur before offering a lock up. The match starts with a lock up and Henry showcases his strength- pushing down Corbin to his knee's as he yells out in pain. Henry then releases him and taunts with the crowd before Corbin would blindside him from behind. The match would then go back and forth- both men sharing the momentum of the match before Henry would take advantage. Scooping up Corbin and slamming him down to the canvas with a body slam! Henry then runs the ropes and leaps into the air before coming crashing down on top of the "Lone Wolf" before covering for the pin. One! Two! Corbin would kick out before the Three and then would wriggle out of the ring- clutching his chest and mouthing he's done with this before attempting to leave ringside. Henry would roll out of the ring and would grab Baron before swinging him into the crowd barrier as Baron went back first into the barricade! Henry then runs at Baron Corbin and Baron would knock down Henry with a boot to the face- knocking him down! Baron would then stomp on Mark Henry as the Official would try and get them back in the ring.

    Corbin though would have other idea's and would walk around to the time keepers area, throwing a ringside worker off a seat before grabbing it and folding it up. Corbin then raises the steel chair and smashes it across the back of Mark Henry as the crowd boo heavily and the Referee calls for the ring bell. The match is over and Mark Henry is announced as the winner but Baron is not done. Instead he raises the chair and once again.. BANG! The chair comes crashing against Henry's back once more. Corbin then poses as the crowd boo once more before one final time- raising the chair in the air and bringing it down with even more force.. SMASH! Mark Henry rolls around in agony as Officials run down from the back and manage to separate both men. Baron Corbin raises the chair in the air and showcases the dents to the crowd before throwing it down and exiting ringside as the officials attend to Mark Henry at ringside.
    Spoiler:

    WINNER BY DQ: MARK HENRY!!


    The show then goes to a small on-air commercial as it highlights the upcoming PPv- SummerSlam! It finishes by highlighting the Women's Championship Match between Natalya and Charlotte before it focuses on the vacant World Heavyweight Championship, showcasing former winners like Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Rock and Triple H.



    The narrator of the video then ask's who will be the next World Heavyweight Champion?! The commercial then finishes and the live footage heads backstage.

    Baron Corbin is making his way backstage with a smile on his face from "Gorilla" position as various backstage workers look on at Baron. Baron then stops and in front of him stands the Smackdown Live commissioner Eric Bischoff and he says that's how you get people talking, son. Corbin just stares as Eric continues speaking. Eric says that he can already see that Corbin is going to make many enemies here on Smackdown but that's okay because controversy creates cash! Baron smiles as Eric says that Corbin caught his attention and with SummerSlam approaching- that's a good thing! Corbin then leaves, walking on as Jim Ross announces that Eric Bischoff is on his way out to ringside with an important announcement, next!

    >> COMMERCIAL <<


    I'M BACK!!

    The crowd give a good pop for Eric Bischoff as the Smackdown Commissioner comes down to ringside, slapping hands with a few fans before taking a microphone from Jojo at ringside and entering the ring. The crowd begin to chant Eric's name a little before it dies down and Bischoff begins to speak.

    ERIC BISCHOFF: Firstly, I've been taking a backseat lately handling some important issues but tonight- I'm the man in charge because Smackdown GM- Shane Mcmahon is not here tonight! Shane is in Stanford attending a meeting with Stephanie Mcmahon and the board of directors after the recent actions of Randy Orton on this week's Monday Night Raw! So, I'm running the show! Now, I have some important- breaking news and it's going to shape the future of Smackdown Live! I'm talking about the World Heavyweight Championship Match at SummerSlam! As you all know, me and Shane, we have been watching the show very, very, very closely. Looking for people to impress us, looking for people to make us sit up and take notice! Well.. We have found Four names and these Four men will go to SummerSlam and will compete for the vacant World Heavyweight Championship!

    Crowd cheers as the excitement builds.

    ERIC BISCHOFF: Now, these four men are four of the best wrestlers in the world today! These four men have consistently put on some great matches within the last couple of weeks especially and have made me and Shane, sit up and take notice. Not only that- but they've managed to get you, the WWE Universe to sit up and take notice and that means everything! So, who are these four men I hear you ask?!

    APOLLO CREWS!!

    *Crowd cheers*

    NEVILLE!!

    *More cheers from the crowd*

    SETH FREAKIN' ROLLINS!!

    *Mixed response from the fans, both cheers and boo's*

    AND LASTLY.. THE DEMON KING- FINN BAAALLOOORRRRRR!!

    *Biggest pop and reaction from the crowd as they follow up the cheers with a "YES!" chant*

    ERIC BISCHOFF: Well I'm glad you all agree! These four men will be going to the hottest party of the summer- SummerSlam, to complete for the right to become the new.. WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!! Who will join names like.. Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Triple H, The Rock and so many more! However, SummerSlam is still two weeks away and you know, I have also firmly believed and I've said so in my book which you can buy on WWE.Com that.. Controversy creates cash! So, I'm going to add some controversy and I am going to give you all a little glimpse into what you can expect to see at SummerSlam because tonight in our Main Event we are going to see the team of Neville and Apollo Crews vs the team of Seth Rollins and Finn Balor!

    Crowd are cheering as another smaller "Yes!" chants break out. The commentary team already speculating how the dynamic will work with opponents at SummerSlam having to become partners tonight.

    ERIC BISCHOFF: And.. That's not all because I have another announcement and it's again in line with the World Heavyweight Championship match at SummerSlam! I mean, sure, four men would be great.. but how about we make it five?! Next week on our go home show of Smackdown Live, there will be a Main Event Battle Royal that will be open to everyone and anyone on the Smackdown Roster and the winner will earn the right to complete alongside Crews, Neville, Balor and Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship! WWE Universe, good evening and I hope you enjoy the show!

    The crowd are cheering as "I'm Back!" plays in the background while Eric attempts to leave the ring. However before he can..

    SHOT'EM!!

    A mixed response follows as the theme of the Bullet Club blares from the speakers! Eric looks puzzled and begins to back track- re-entering the ring as he looks on. AJ Styles leads out the club- flanked by the good brothers, Gallows and Karl Anderson. The club make their way down to ringside and begin to surround the ring as the commentary team wonder what they've got planned? Eric at this point looks on, nervous. The club then enter and surround the commissioner before AJ get's close and snatches the microphone from the hand of Eric before speaking to a chorus of boo's from the crowd.

    AJ STYLES: You wanna' know something Bischoff?! This impressing stuff is "BS" and the only thing impressive about Smackdown... WWE... Hell, wrestling.. IS THE BULLET CLUB!! I am better then Apollo Crews, Neville, Seth Rollins and Finn Balor on my worst day and had it not been for John Cena.. I'd be going to SummerSlam and leaving with the World Heavyweight Championship! Instead.. I'm going to SummerSlam and I'm going to do what I do best and that's.. *All three members of the club lean in to the microphone and shout along with AJ* BEAT UP JOHN CENA!!

    Crowd boo as the Club begin to laugh. Eric watches on, wondering where this is going.

    AJ STYLES: However, make no mistake, the very next night on Smackdown, I'll be out here to confront who ever the new World Heavyweight Champion will be because as far as I'm concerned- After I'm done beating John Cena again.. I'll be the undisputed face that runs the place and the line starts and ends with me as the challenger and number one contender, ya' hear me?! Ohh.. and I almost forget. I have a message for one, Rock N' Rolla, the Demon King- Finn Balor! Finn, last week I allowed that to happen because the good brothers, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson once knew you as a brother in arms and so you got a pass! I allowed them to break the code. Make no mistake, you were something to them- but you're nothing to me! That was a once in a lifetime occurrence and unless your Bullet Club- You're against us!

    AJ speaks with venom in his voice, sending out a warning to all before handing the microphone to Karl Anderson who now steps in front of Eric Bischoff and speaks.

    KARL ANDERSON: Mr Bischoff, me and my good brother, Gallows. We have a problem. A vermin problem with a rodent named Enzo Amore and his jolly very green giant friend- Big Cass! Now Eric, we know you can do something about this and I think you should.. Because.. The Bullet Club don't like to be told.. No.. You understand?!

    At this point, the Bullet Club have pushed back Eric into a ring corner as "JR" says they're trying to intimidate the commissioner into giving them what they want and it's wrong! Anderson then passes the microphone to Luke Gallows as he speaks on.

    LUKE GALLOWS: The problem is.. Those.. NER-NER-NER- NEEERRRRRDS!! Think they're a couple of tough guys! Well we say, put them in a match against the Bullet Club and we gon' see how tough they really are, what do you say?

    Again the pressure is on Eric as the Bullet Club have him pressed in against the corner, Eric squeezes past and takes the microphone from Gallows and says that he can see where this is going and that he will make the match! It's going to be the Bullet Club vs Enzo Amore & Big Cass in a 3 on 2 Handicap match and that match is next!!

    Eric leaves the ring as the crowd are booing. "JR" says that the Bullet Club bullied the commissioner into making that decision tonight and that would not have happened with Shane Mcmahon! "JBL" says that maybe Eric just liked the idea and we are going to see if Enzo and Cass can back up there words. Booker says that the Club are starting to flex there muscle and are pretty much doing what ever they want on Smackdown right now!

    Match Two: Bullet Club (AJ, Gallows & Anderson) vs Enzo Amore & Big Cass.
    Finish:Enzo & Cass fought with everything but the match was always in favor of the Club due to the odds and numbers and they took advantage of the situation. They used their corner to good effect- often separating either Enzo or Cass from their corner and cutting off the ring with quick tags and beatdown's while the legal man would distract the Referee. Enzo & Cass would have a period on top of the match and would look like they could change the outcome of the match as Air Enzo would take place, knocking down all three members of the Bullet Club on the outside as Cass would then drag in Anderson and hit the East River Crossing! He would go for the pin and just like previous occasions, the spare man would break up the cover before the numbers game would be too much. Gallows and Cass would be the legal men in the ring and would be brawling it out while on the outside- AJ and Karl Anderson would drag down Enzo from his corner and would throw him into the ring steps before beating down on him and throwing him into the crowd, over the barricade. Cass would then see this and look to come to his partners aid before Gallows would nail him with a big forearm smash, knocking him down. Cass would fall to one knee and when he attempted to stand.. AJ came flying into the ring and would knock him down with the..



    ..PHENOMENAL FOREARM!! shouted "JBL" before Anderson would then enter the ring. All three men would stomp down Cass before the good brothers would drag him up, slap him around before finishing with the..


    ...MAGIC KILLER!! Gallows would then cover and though Enzo did his best to enter the ring- he was quickly swarmed by AJ and Anderson as they pounced on him with kicks and punches. Gallows would pick up the victory! One! Two! Three!


    Spoiler:

    WINNER: THE BULLET CLUB!


    After the match- the Bullet Club were not done. They would continue to beat on both men in the middle of the ring as the crowd boo'd and Jim Ross shouted enough is enough! AJ would then exit the ring and would go underneath the ring before pulling out cable ties and holding them in the air for the crowd to see. AJ then slid the cable tie to Karl Anderson who would tie up Enzo to the middle rope and he would be forced to watch all three men now beat down and attack Big Cass. Kicks and punches, all across his body as he wriggled in agony and Enzo Amore tried to break free.

    The Bullet Club then posed- stood over the top of Cass as they "2-Sweet" and celebrated. Booker T called the actions of these three men disgusting and says that he hopes Shane Mcmahon is watching and deals with these outsiders. "JBL" says that Enzo and Cass learned a lesson tonight- the Bullet Club are sitting on top of the wrestling world and people should think twice before opposing them. "JR" says that not since the days of the nWo has he seen such a faction run rough-shot so quickly over a promotion and unless they are dealt with- it's only going to get worse for Smackdown and the WWE Universe! Jim Ross then says that the beautiful Renee Young is standing by with some guest's ready for an interview!

    Renee Young would thank Jim Ross for the introduction and would announce her guest's at this time, the legendary and multi-time Tag Team Champions- The Dudley Boyz!! The crowd would cheer as Both Bubba & Dvon Dudley would enter the camera shot- thanking Renee for the introduction. Renee says that firstly, she has to ask after what we have just witnessed and from what we have seen in recent weeks- do the Dudley Boyz worry about becoming a target of the Bullet Club?

    Bubba & Dvon both smile before Bubba speaks. Bubba says that it's one thing to gang up and sneak attack people still cutting their teeth in this business, but it's a whole another level to go face to face with me and brother- Dvon. You have to be pretty stupid to want to go to war with "DEM' DAMN DUDLEY BOYZZ!" says Bubba as Dvon nods in agreement. Dvon says that him and his brother are survivors of this business and have the stories and scars to prove it! We have beat everyone and have won everything there is to win in this business and unless the Bullet Club want to be another name going through the Dudley table! They should stay out of Dudleyville!

    Renee then ask's about the Revival and there tweet at the end of Talking Smack two weeks ago. Bubba says that him and his brother seen the tweet- but they ain't seen nothing else since! Dvon says that they've been expecting the Revival and until now, they're yet to show up! Bubba says maybe the reality has hit them that the Dudley Boyz are waiting for there arrival. Bubba says that him and Dvon are personally inviting the Revival to turn up at Smackdown Live next week and we can find out who's the better team! The Dudleyz then leave the interview area as Renee repeats the invitation to the Revival before the show goes to a commercial break.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The camera then returns from the commercial break and to ringside where we see two teams already in the ring- ready to compete! Jim Ross welcomes the fans back from the break and says we're about ready for some tag team action as the VaudeVillians will take on Epico & Primo, the Shining stars!

    Just as "JR" finishes speaking- the camera goes backstage where the live footage is being played on the Tron. You view is from a live camera, motioning up and down, very shaky as it appears the person holding the camera is running. He runs to an exit door for what appears to be the parking lot as "JBL" says what the hell is going on?! It soon becomes clear as the exit door is opened and a black limo is pulled up with security surrounding it. "JR" ask's if this could be Vince Mcmahon? He then ask's what's with the security? Booker says he has a bad feeling and his bad feeling is correct as the limo door opens and out steps...

    THE BEAST- BRROOCCCCKKKK LESSSNNAARRRR!


    The crowd in the arena pop so loud that it can be heard from the camera in the parking lot. Brock shuts the door behind him and motions forward but the security surround him. Brock does not care- grabbing one of the men and throwing him over the back of the limo to the concrete. He then charges at another with a clothesline before fighting off two more with punches and knee's to the face stomach and face. Brock then pushes over the camera man with the live footage and as the camera falls to the ground- you can see Brock walking past and entering the exit door into the building before the footage is gone!

    Jim Ross shouts "Bah Gawd, it's Brock Lesnar!" and he says that with no Heyman beside him- who the hell is going to be able to control this freak of nature?! The live footage returns to ringside where the ring bell has already sounded the third match of the night is started.


    Match Three: The VaudeVillians vs The Shining Stars.
    Finish: The crowd don't care and all you can hear is chants for Brock as they sense something is about go down- big time! Despite both teams putting on a minute or two of decent action- there worst fears have arrived and the Beast is in the crowd is making his way down the aisle as the crowd are going absolutely crazy! Brock leaps the crowd barricade and steam rolls Aiden English on the outside with a thunderous clothesline that would have made "JBL" proud. Brock then enters the ring and it's SUPLEX CITY BITCH! German suplex to Epico and one more to Simon Gotch who were the legal men. Brock then poses as the crowd pop before catching Primo in mid-air who came off the top rope. Brock picks him up, spins him around and F5! F5! F5! Shouts Jim Ross. Brock then clears the ring- chucking everyone over the top rope as the match is ruled a no contest.
    Spoiler:



    Spoiler:

    RESULT: NO CONTEST.


    Brock chants are deafening as the Beast grabs a microphone from ringside and enters the ring once more.

    BROCK LESNAR: SMACKDOWN?! NOPE! THIS IS SUPLEX CITY, BITCH!!

    Crowd pop again.

    BROCK LESNAR: RETALIATION! Shane, I know you're in a meeting with WWE officials to apologize about what happened on Raw. Well.. There's no need. I am here and I am ready to fight. RANDY ORTON- WE DON'T NEED TO WAIT TILL SUMMERSLAM- LET'S DO THIS RIGHT NOW!! GET OUT HERE, BITCH!!




    Brock throws the microphone and begins to bounce on the balls of his feet- motioning for Randy to come out here and throw down. The crowd now chant Orton's name and there's a huge pop as the Viper's theme plays and Orton steps out onto the stage with a smirk across his face. Orton makes his way down the ramp and the crowd are in a frenzy, we are about to see Brock and Orton fight! Orton reaches ringside when more security run down the ramp and separate Randy Orton from the ring as the crowd are booing and shouting "Let them fight!" over and over as Brock tries to exit the ring- only to be blocked off. Eric Bischoff then steps out on to the stage and with a microphone in hand begins to speak.

    ERIC BISCHOFF: RANDY ORTON, STAND DOWN! DON'T YOU DARE! Brock- Brock I am asking you calm down or there will be serious consequences for both of you! This cannot and will not happen tonight because this will go down on SummerSlam! However, you two want the chance to go face to face? Great! I just got off a conference call with both Shane and Stephanie Mcmahon and it's been agreed by the board of directors and Raw officials that Orton will have permission to go to Raw next week and a contract signing will take place for you two, to fight at SummerSlam! So there you go, this Monday night- Raw, you will both have chance to speak your mind and you know what- you can tear strips from each other, but you're not doing it on my watch! Security, please remove Mr Lesnar from the building and see that he leaves this arena!

    Security usher a very reluctant Brock Lesnar from the ring and walk him through the crowd to exit the arena and leave. Eric is not done with Orton though and again speaks.

    ERIC BISCHOFF: Randy Orton! You're to blame for this carnage and Brock was right- this was retaliation! You went against the orders of me, Shane Mcmahon and the WWE Board of Directors by turning up on Raw and attacking Mr Heyman Monday night. You're solely responsible for innocent security members getting hurt and injured tonight and quite frankly, I hope you get what's coming to you at SummerSlam! As for tonight- since you're out here and ready to compete- then I have a match for you! You will go one on one with the United States Champion! The Bulgarian Brute- Ruusseevvvv!

    Match Four: Randy Orton vs Rusev W/ Lana.
    Finish: This match was hard hitting and no nonsense from both men. Both would take the fight to all four corners of the ring and around ringside. Bouncing each other off announce tables, steel steps, crowd barriers and the ring posts. Orton each strike with added venom and hate, perhaps imagining the US Champion- Rusev to be Brock Lesnar. Lana did her best to play the numbers game, trying to distract Orton but the Viper was focused and stuck to the task. He would have Rusev down after a vintage body slam of the irish whip to the ropes and would look like he was about to go to that dark place. He would stand in the corner, his head twisting and turning as he had that wild look in this face. He was coiled and "JBL" would scream that Orton has lost it- he's about to punt kick Rusev's head and cave his skull in. As Orton was perched- Lana would plead with him- not to hurt her husband but Orton was determined. Just when he went to run at Rusev, Lana would grab his trailing leg from ringside and would clutch it as Orton tried to shake her free. Eventually Orton would break free but it was enough for Rusev to get back up and land a splash to Orton in the corner before coming off the ropes and landing a fierce super-kick to the Viper's chin- knocking him down and out!

    One! Two! Orton would kick out before the three and Rusev would be shocked. Rusev would stand up and stare at his Wife- Lana, who would order him to break Orton. Rusev would stomp on Orton's back before attempting to lock in the accolade! As Rusev attempted to sit and lock it in tight- Orton would struggle free and would bite Rusev's hand before sliding between his legs! Orton would then spin Rusev around and as he turned..


    ...RKO! RKO! RKO, OUTTA' NOWEHERE! Shouted Jim Ross as Randy Orton would cover the big man and pick up the major win with the three count. One! Two! Three!


    Spoiler:

    WINNER: RANDY ORTON.


    The crowd cheered as Orton picked up the win and the Referee raised his hand in victory. The commentary put over the fact that again, it only takes one RKO from Orton to get the job done! Booker speculates if that will be Brock's fate at SummerSlam?! As Orton celebrated with the crowd posing on turnbuckle he would be blindsided by Rusev who would knock him down. Rusev would demand Orton get up before nailing him with the US Championship in the middle of the ring. Lana would then call for Rusev to crush Orton once again and this time the Accolade was locked in and it was done so tightly, Orton's face turning red to purple, quickly.

    RADIO!!

    The crowd would cheer as the Long Island Iced-Z came running down the ramp, sliding into the ring. Rusev would see him coming and would swing with a right hand only for the ultimate broski to duck underneath and unleash a flurry of punches! Each one knocked Rusev back more before Ryder would clothesline the Bulgarian Brute over the top rope and send him crashing to the canvas! Ryder would beg Rusev to get back in the ring before checking on Orton who would begin to stand back up.

    Rusev was furious, screaming in his mother tongue before Lana would stop him getting back in the ring and would look to calm him down- telling him to exit up the ramp. Ryder would motion for the US Championship as the crowd would cheer before Ryder and Orton would share a handshake and the show went to a commercial.

    >> COMMERCIAL >>

    The live camera returns from the break and goes backstage where the Demon King- Finn Balor is shown warming up backstage. He's shown taping up his wrist's before stretching as the door behind him opens up and in-steps Seth Freakin' Rollins who confronts Balor, face to face.

    FINN BALOR: Don't you knock, Seth?

    SETH ROLLINS: I've got no time for your silly games, Finn. We have to face the facts that tonight we are both teaming up in the Main Event against Neville & Apollo Crews and I want you to know, I hate the idea of having to team with you, Balor.

    FINN BALOR: Well Seth, finally, something we can agree on! I don't want to team with you either, Seth. I'd sooner team with Apollo or Neville because I know they're two honest guys you can trust to do the right thing and be professional to get the job done! In the name of entertainment and wrestling- not a snake like you Rollins, who has made a career of stabbing his teammates in the back and no doubt you will do the same to me!

    SETH ROLLINS: This time is will be different, Balor! I won't need to stab you in the back because I'll stab you right in the heart- face to face! However, you know what Finn, I'm not going to do that because I know this is another test from Eric and Shane to impress and I'm going to win this match and prove that I am the.. MAN!! Now, I know you've had a hard day, I know your Japanese kliq buddies don't want anything to do with you anymore so how about you bring out some Ice Cream and a blanket, sit in the corner and watch me work, kid.

    FINN BALOR: You make me laugh, Seth. I got here on my own- as far as I'm concerned- I don't need anyone, I'm on my own and don't need any friends to do anything for me! My time in Japan, the Bullet Club, those days were great but they're gone! Just like the days of Seth Rollins being the man around here have gone! As a matter of fact, Seth. Why don't you stay back here tonight and let me go out there alone because you might get hurt again and nobody wants another underwhelming return with a silly catchphrase!

    The crowd "OOHHHH" at the words of both Finn and Rollins. The two men go face to face before Rollins turns away and storms out. The camera then returns to ringside.

    "JR" talks up the Main Event to come and wonders how Balor & Rollins will get on the same page to face Apollo Crews & Neville tonight? "JBL" says that they won't get on the same page because of Balor's ego! Booker says that's a lie and it's Rollins that will stab Balor in the back at the first chance! Jim Ross then talks up the situation between Brock & Orton and how highly anticipated their match will be at SummerSlam! Jim Ross then confirms the news that both Brock & Orton will go face to face on Monday Night Raw in a contract signing! "JR" then says that's not the only breaking news though- He's just heard word that in exchange for Orton going to Raw, the Franchise- John Cena will return to Smackdown Live for one night only as John Cena and AJ Styles will go face to face next week in a contract signing for their grudge match at SummerSlam! "JR" says that up next, it's the ladies as Naomi will take on Rosa Mendes!

    Match Five: Naomi vs Rosa Mendes.
    Finish: Naomi debuted a new look and the crowd instantly liked the new entrance and theme with a real focus on the glow aspect. Naomi made quick work of Rosa mendes, going through her arsenal of moves and showcasing her athletic ability. Naomi would hit Rosa with the Rear View before positioning her in the middle of ring and forcing her to tap out to the FTG- Feel the Glow!
    Spoiler:



    WINNER: NAOMI!


    The Referee will raise Naomi's hand in victory as she would celebrate and taunt with the crowd. Naomi would then reach out from the middle rope and receive a microphone from Jojo at ringside before speaking.

    NAOMI: YO, CALIFORNIA, WHAT'S UP?

    Crowd cheers.

    NAOMI: Man- It felt good to be back out here and performing for ya'll. It's a new era and it's going to be a new me, a better me and I'm finally going to achieve my aims and dreams, I know it! Smackdown Live is the land of opportunity and just like tonight- I'm going to make sure I take my chances and I shine! People are going to feel my glow and there's no more holding me back! Natalya, Charlotte, I respect you both and you two are amazingly talented and I know you are both going to steal the show at SummerSlam.. BUT.. I want you both to know that when the winner is decided and you're looking for that next challenger, look no further then me because I'll be ready!

    Naomi then drops the microphone and poses for the crowd one more time before exiting the ring and heading back up the ramp. The camera shot then splits in two and goes backstage. On the left hand side you can see the Champion- Charlotte Flair with Dana Brooke, scheming and planning their strategy while on the right hand side the challenger- Natalya is joined by Becky Lynch as they both shake hands. The commentary team say that after the break- it will be Natalya teaming with Becky Lynch to face Charlotte & Dana Brooke!

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    Match Six: Becky Lynch & Natalya vs Charlotte & Dana Brooke.
    Finish: The show came back from the break and the sixth match of the night was about to begin. Becky & Nattie came down to cheers while as expected- Brooke and the "Queen"- Charlotte came down to heavy boo's. The match got underway and both teams battled hard. Very noticeable was that Charlotte wanted nothing to do with Natalya and each time Nattie was tagged in- Charlotte would tag out. This would continue until Natalya would be trading blows with Brooke in the middle of the ring. Nattie would nail Brooke with a flurry of forearm strikes before hitting a spinning discuss like clothesline on Brooke, knocking her down. At this point- Charlotte would turn away and face the crowd, taunting them as they boo'ed. Natalya would then drag up a lifeless Brooke and would use her hand- to slap Charlotte on the back as the Referee made the call and declared Charlotte now legal in the match. Charlotte would turn around- furious as Nattie would sling Brooke through the middle rope. Natalya would then step back and begin to taunt Charlotte to get in the ring and fight. Charlotte would be reluctant and would begin shouting at Dana Brooke to get back up. Nattie would then grab Charlotte by the hair before dragging the Women's Champion through the middle ring and taking her down before the two would fight it out, pulling hair and trading punches as both rolled around the ring.

    Nattie & Charlotte would break away and both raced up before Charlotte would attempt to clothesline Nattie who would duck underneath and look to land another spinning discuss clothesline. Before Nattie could land with the discuss clothesline- Charlotte would smash her in the face with a big boot- knocking the "Queen of Harts" down. Charlotte would then begin working on the right leg of Natalya, stomping on the joints before wrapping it against the turnbuckle and going to work on the leg as Nattie yelled out in agony. Charlotte would continue this trend before tagging in Dana Brooke. Dana would then taunt Natalya and would look to lock her in the Sharpshooter as the crowd heavily booed. Dana would have it in tight as Charlotte was screaming at Natalya to tap out and give up. Nattie would wriggle across the canvas and get to a rope break. The Referee would order Brooke to break the hold but Dana wouldn't and the Referee reached three before Nattie would break away and kick Dana Brooke back, sending her rolling across the canvas. Nattie would then tag in Becky and the "Lass-Kicker" would bring straight fire as she stormed the ring- knocking down Brooke with forearm's before running at Charlotte and knocking her off ringside to the floor. Becky would then pick up Dana and land with the Bex-ploder! Becky would then tag back in Nattie and Natalya would win the match via the Sharpshooter, causing Dana Brooke to tap out in the middle of the ring.


    Spoiler:

    WINNERS: BECKY LYNCH & NATALYA!


    The Referee would raise the hands of both Nattie & Lynch in victory as they stood tall over Dana Brooke. On the outside- Charlotte would be furious. The Women's Champion would grab her belt and a microphone before heading up the ramp to the stage. At the top of the stage, she would then speak.

    CHARLOTTE FLAIR: You might have made Dana Brooke tap out, Natalya.. BUT, you will NEVER.. NEVER make me tap out at SummerSlam! No one, NO ONE will ever make the QUEEN and your WOMEN'S CHAMPION tap out! In-fact, Nattie, it's going to be you tapping out at SummerSlam! And you know what?! I won't even need the Figure Eight because everyone knows, the Figure Four IS.. WAS.. ALWAYS WILL BE!! Better then the Sharpshooter! Just like a FLAIR will always be better then a HART! WOOOHHOOOOOOOOO!

    Charlotte drops the microphone and holds up the Women's Championship before turning away and exiting to the Gorilla position. The camera then heads backstage where Neville is shown warming up as Apollo Crews enters the camera shot and the pair exchange words.

    APOLLO CREWS: Hey Neville, I just wanted to say man, these last few weeks, it's been a pleasure to put on some great matches with you and it will be a pleasure to team with you tonight and steal the show again!

    NEVILLE: You too, Apollo. Since coming to Smackdown- we've both taking our chances and it's paid off big time! We're both heading to SummerSlam to compete for the World Heavyweight Championship in the biggest match of our lives! However tonight- we have another big chance and I intend to take it!

    APOLLO CREWS: Good, then we are on the same page! I guess I'll see you out there, Neville.

    NEVILLE: Yeah.. I'll see you out there! Oh and Apollo, just so we are clear, tonight we are a team.. BUT.. At SummerSlam, it's may the best man win!

    Apollo & Neville both go face to face for a moment as there's some tension. The two men shake hands as there is clear respect before Apollo leaves and the show moves on to a small commercial for SummerSlam.

    Once the live footage comes back- Jim Ross lets the WWE Universe that Talking Smack will be on the WWE Network right after Smackdown Live finishes. "JR" announces that the beautiful Renee Young will host the show and Y2KO- Chris Jericho & Kevin Owens will be her guests! Booker says that this Talking Smack will be five times better then the last one because the five time! five time! five time! five time! five time! World Heavyweight Champion and Hall of Famer, Booker T will be hosting the show alongside Renee Young! "JR" says that before Talking Smack we have a hell of a Main Event as Apollo Crews & Neville will face Seth Rollins & Finn Balor!

    Main Event Match: Finn Balor & Seth Rollins vs Neville & Apollo Crews.
    Finish: All four men stood in the ring before the ring bell sounded. The crowd chanted heavily for Finn Balor while there was smaller chants for Neville & Apollo. All four men looked up at a SummerSlam sign that advertised on the arena wall. Neville, Balor & Apollo all shook hands but noticeably Seth Rollins hand no interest at all- exiting the ring and telling Balor to start the match. Apollo & Neville decided the best way to decide who would start for them was via Rock, Paper & Scissors. Neville would win and the ring bell would sound as Balor and Neville locked up! Neville & Balor would chain wrestle to the canvas and would swap locks and maneuvers before both would kip up as the crowd would chant. Rollins would then slap Balor across the back and tell him to get out of his ring as both went face to face. Finn would exit the ring and Rollins would enter, running at Neville with a clothesline attempt but Neville would duck underneath and the British born- Neville would turn around and leap up with a clothesline- knocking down Rollins. Seth would be furious as Balor would laugh on the ring apron. Neville would then offer a lock up with Rollins and both would test their strength against each other. Neville would be pushing Rollins back when Seth would knee Neville into the gut before forearm striking him across the back and then beating him down with multiple kicks, repeatedly. Rollins would then pose as the crowd boo'ed and Seth would shout "That's how it's done, Finn!" as Balor would roll his eyes.

    The match would continue for a solid 7-8 minutes and the match was back and forth, both teams on the same page and showcasing their abilities as the crowd was into the match. The tension was obvious to the crowd as Rollins & Balor were more reluctant to tag each other but Neville & Apollo had their moments too- often they were trying to one up each other and show how good they are. At this point- Apollo & Rollins were the legal men. Apollo would have Rollins up in position for a gorilla slam as he was setting up for the Apollo Combination! Rollins though would wriggle free, drop down, landing on his feet before leaping up with a knee to the face of Apollo. Rollins would then run the ropes and leap up with another knee to the face- knocking Crews back to the turnbuckle. Rollins would then climb the turnbuckle and his a diving somersault neck breaker! BLOCKBUSTER!! Shouted "JBL" as Rollins then goes for the cover! One! Two!

    Apollo kicked out before the three! Rollins would then drag up Apollo and place him in position for the Pedigree. Rollins would hook the arms of Apollo but Crews would back body drop Rollins to the canvas before jumping up with a standing moonsault and crashing back down onto the ribs and stomach of Rollins. Apollo then drags up Rollins and drops him in the middle of the canvas with the Spin-Out Powerbomb! Apollo would then go for the cover! One! Two! Thre-Kick out! Rollins would kick out right before the three count. Both men would then lie exhausted in the middle of the ring before both started crawling towards their respective corners. Apollo would leap up and tag Neville and Rollins would reluctantly tag in Balor as the crowd popped for the hot tag! Balor would come in- ducking underneath a clothesline from Neville before nailing him with the Sling-Blade! Apollo would then enter back in the ring and would look to strike Balor but would catch a Pele kick from Balor, knocking him down and out of the ring! Finn would then stand back up and would raise up Neville before dropping him down with the 1916! Balor would then take to the top turnbuckle and would position for the Coupe De Grace! Jim Ross says "Folks, we know what's coming next! Coupe De" - before he can say anymore and Balor is able to jump, Rollins would do the unthinkable and would low blow Balor who stood at the top of the turnbuckle before pushing him off the top and falling to the canvas with a sick smirk across his face. Booker says that Rollins is nothing more then a snake! "JBL" says that Balor wanted to be the hero and he looks like the zero right now!

    Rollins would then laugh as he jumped down of the ring apron and began to walk up the ramp to the stage. Neville looked on- puzzled by Seth's actions. Neville though does not waste the opportunity and runs at Balor with a shining wizard- knocking him down! Neville then climbs the turnbuckle and to the spectacle of the crowd and their cheers- Neville leaps in the air and lands with the...


    ...RED ARROW! Shouted Jim Ross as Neville would hook the leg of Balor and go for the cover! One! Two! Three! Neville would pick up the win as Seth Rollins looked on from the top of the stage with a smile on his face before turning away and heading behind the curtain. Back in the ring, Neville & Apollo would share a stare as Neville pointed out that he got the victory as the Referee raised both their hands in victory. Apollo & Neville would then help up Finn Balor as the crowd cheered for the three men. Balor looked pissed as he stared up at the stage, holding his back and ribs, looking for Rollins.

    Jim Ross praises the victory for Apollo & Neville despite the assist from the backstabbing Seth Rollins. He mentions that with SummerSlam right around the corner, Apollo & Neville have massive momentum going forward. Booker says that Balor is hot and you can bet he will be looking to get his hands on Seth Rollins next week! "JBL" says that Rollins owed Balor nothing! Balor even said that Rollins would back stab him and so shouldn't be shocked at all. Jim Ross mentions again that Talking Smack is coming up next and thanks the WWE Universe for tuning in to Smackdown Live tonight live from Bakersfield, California! He tells the fans to enjoy their night and to tune in next week!

    Smackdown comes to an end but the show does not finish- instead a pre-taped vignette begins to air. It's a darkened room with a small dimly lit light bulb swinging back and forth as smoke fills the room and airs past the camera. Suddenly a laugh can be hard and the man behind the vignette enters the camera shot.


    BRAY WYATT: I warned you all, man. I told you all.. DESTRUCTION, is coming.. *Wyatt continues to laugh* The time has come! Next week, I release my weapon of destruction. The Monster among men will be at the Battle Royal next week and it won't be pretty. My Black Sheep, my Monster, Braun Strowman will do my bidding and will follow my every word! He will be my device to reach the World Heavyweight Championship and claim Smackdown as my world, for I am a god to you lonely, lost, sheep that they call the WWE Universe! Braun will discard those that don't run, he will eliminate those that fight and when the time comes.. He will sacrifice for his leader, the eater of worlds, Bray... Wyatt.

    I will go to SummerSlam. You know, they say SummerSlam is the hottest party of the year, man. I say, what happens when the devil himself turns up and scorches those that stand in his way, huh? Neville, Apollo, Rollins and even a demon.. Finn Balor. The World Heavyweight Championship is more then a belt too me.. It's a crown to the thrown at the biggest kingdom in the world. It's where I.. Bray Wyatt will sit and where I will truly have the whole world in my hands, man.

    The Battle Royal.. It's a false hope. It appears to be a beacon of light for so many to achieve their dreams but it's all lies.. LIES! I tell you and you better head my words.. The Battle Royal will lead those that enter and oppose me to their Armageddon because those that arrive, will see their demise! However there's another way, bow down to your god and believe in the words I speak.. do I as say, follow as I walk and just like my Black Sheep, Braun Strowman.. You will stand alongside me!

    Unless you're going to bow down and follow.. Then.. You... Should...

    RUN!!


    The vignette then finishes and the live footage fades to black ending the show.

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

    Another great show in the bag, chaps. Really enjoying this so far and just had a binge read if last few shows to catch up. Summerslam is going to be a great show so far and I'm really looking forward to it. I'm not one for big reviews - don't often have time - but wanted to give you a few words of encouragement here.

    If I'm honest, I'm preferring RAW just over SMACKDOWN so far because of one reason - grammar and punctuation. It's really off-putting to many (including me, obviously) so I'd really really suggest, Deco, that you run a check on it before posting. Apostrophes are for plurals and contractions, not verbs, and that's my main gripe but some there/their, were/where and other homophones used incorrectly too. I know it seems picky as hell but it makes or breaks for many here. As for other basics, the formatting is good and the level of detail works for me - similar to my own detail in fact - which makes it easy to read but there's enough to engage with.

    Booking wise, I'm enjoying both inter-brand feuds and I'm interested in how these play out at Summerslam. It'll be one win each I bet (Brock and AJ or Cena and Orton) but I'm looking forward to seeing how you make everybody look strong here. On RAW, really rooting for Cesaro to defeat Miz - moves Miz on up closer to main event and pushes Cesaro into a run as IC Champion - all good. On SMACKDOWN, I'm really enjoying the interaction with Nattie and Charlotte; good use of Flair vs. Hart here.

    If I was critical, it'd be the grammar stuff on SMACKDOWN, the similarities between stories (Ryback on RAW vs. Ziggler and Corbin on SMACKDOWN, Axel on RAW vs. Ryder on SMACKDOWN) and the over-push of some guys. The push of Neville and Apollo, Ryder, Cesaro has been a little hit n' miss and some, particularly Neville/Apollo, feels a little forced.

    Nothing major though - couple of bits to work on. This has been a good read so far and I'm looking forward to reading more.

On RAW, really rooting for Cesaro to defeat Miz - moves Miz on up closer to main event and pushes Cesaro into a run as IC Champion - all good. On SMACKDOWN, I'm really enjoying the interaction with Nattie and Charlotte; good use of Flair vs. Hart here.

    If I was critical, it'd be the grammar stuff on SMACKDOWN, the similarities between stories (Ryback on RAW vs. Ziggler and Corbin on SMACKDOWN, Axel on RAW vs. Ryder on SMACKDOWN) and the over-push of some guys. The push of Neville and Apollo, Ryder, Cesaro has been a little hit n' miss and some, particularly Neville/Apollo, feels a little forced.

    Nothing major though - couple of bits to work on. This has been a good read so far and I'm looking forward to reading more.

    Massively appreciate that you have taking the time to check out our shows and offer your thoughts dude, thank you.

    Yeah the grammar is definitely my weak spot and I should take more care to check it. The problem I have, the more I read my own work- the more I want to change it and become critical Haha! I write in my second language as well which doesn't help but will definitely take the feedback on board. Thanks again!

    Never picked up on the similarities before and I guess that comes down to me and Shaz having similar thinking, maybe. Aside from Orton/Brock & AJ/Cena, we pretty much have no clue what the other one is doing until each show is posted to really make that two different shows vibe organic. So I guess I can only put that down to coincidence.

    Very interesting to hear your thoughts on Apollo & Neville though! Thank you.

    As for the positives, glad you are enjoying it mate! Again- thanks for taking the time to reply.

    If I'm honest, I'm preferring RAW just over SMACKDOWN so far because of one reason - grammar and punctuation. It's really off-putting to many (including me, obviously) so I'd really really suggest, Deco, that you run a check on it before posting. Apostrophes are for plurals and contractions, not verbs, and that's my main gripe but some there/their, were/where and other homophones used incorrectly too. I know it seems picky as hell but it makes or breaks for many here. As for other basics, the formatting is good and the level of detail works for me - similar to my own detail in fact - which makes it easy to read but there's enough to engage with.

    Some interesting thoughts right there, for definite! The interbrand feuds are the only ones that myself & Deco have been working on together, whereas the rest has been independent. As for the similarities- repeating what Deco said, it must be down to coincidence haha.

    As for the over-push of Cesaro in particular... in real life- he & The Miz had some unfinished business, in my eyes anyway lol. They had a really cool feud, but that feud had a really underwhelming ending- so the idea behind this is to finish off the unfinished business, and see where it takes us in future.

    I'll definitely take some of your comments into consideration man! Thank you for the review, and your honesty man! Much appreciated.

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



    Episode Two: 09/08/16 - Bakersfield, California.

    RENEE YOUNG: Hey, WWE Universe, welcome to another episode of Talking Smack! I am Renee Young and we are live on the WWE Network from Bakersfield, California! Now sadly, Smackdown General Manager, Shane Mcmahon is not with me tonight due to him attending a meeting with the Raw officials and WWE board of directors earlier today but joining me at this time.. It's the five time World Heavyweight Champion! The Hall of Famer! Smackdown announcer- Booker T! Welcome to the show, Book.

    BOOKER T: Hey Renee, what's up dawgs? I'm excited to be here on the WWE Network! Thanks for having me Renee.


    RENEE YOUNG: You're welcome Booker, thanks for joining me. Now Book, let's get right into the show, what did you think of it? It was another good episode, am I right?

    BOOKER T: Aww man, action packed, Renee. Big announcements, some big matches, I got to say, SummerSlam is heating up and I can't wait to see it go down in the Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York! I'll be there and I'll be bringing that Harlem Heat, ya' feel me? you gotta' love it!

    RENEE YOUNG: Oh I feel you Booker. I can tell your excited, I am too and the crowd are too. Firstly, let's talk about the announcements for the World Heavyweight Championship match in Brooklyn. It will be.. Neville! Apollo Crews! Seth Rollins! And... Finn Balor! How awesome is that?!

    BOOKER T: OUT-STANDING! You know Renee, you can bet right now that's going to steal the show! You talk about four hungry, young, talented guys giving a chance to be in the Main Event for a Championship that the likes of Ric Flair, Hogan, Triple H, Rock.. Yours truly! Legends! Have won.. Amazing moment. Then you take the announcement from Bischoff that next week a Battle Royal will determine the fifth person to enter the match and compete? It's going to be off the chain, Renee.

    RENEE YOUNG: I couldn't agree more, Booker, I am excited. I've got to ask- looking at the roster, who are you tipping to win the Battle Royal next week? I mean, we all seen that Bray vignette at the end of the show and that warning.. Braun Strowman is coming! Your thoughts, Book?

    BOOKER T: Scary! You know, Bray seems to control these monsters, get's in their head and has them doing as he says, Braun is the latest one and he might just be the scariest one yet- he certainly is the monster among men and you wouldn't rule out him coming next week and winning the Battle Royal for Bray. However, I wouldn't rule out my boy, Mark Henry! Worlds strongest man and providing he can recover from that attack from Baron Corbin on the show earlier, Henry will be a real force!

    RENEE YOUNG: Yeah! Henry, Corbin, Swagger, Rusev, just a few names of the top of my head. It's sure going to be interesting! Now fans, we are going to change gears right now and introduce our guest's at this time, two men who will also take part in the Battle Royal next week.. Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens!

    Video footage plays from last weeks episode of Smackdown Live's ending where Finn Balor was being attacked by Owens and Jericho. It finishes with Anderson and Gallows making the save and running Jericho and Owens out of the ring. Owens and Jericho then enter the live camera shot of Talking Smack dressed sharp as they both take a seat and begin to speak their mind.



    CHRIS JERICHO: So let me get this right.. Renee. You invite us on here to boost the ratings, knowing you have the two best friends and two best wrestlers in the world right now.. then you show that footage from last week which has clearly been tampered with because what you failed to show.. Renee- was that me and my best friend got back in that ring and we beat the hell out of the Bullet Club!

    BOOKER T: How come we didn't see it?

    KEVIN OWENS: The camera's were off you idiot!


    CHRIS JERICHO: Yeah, Booker! You idiot! The camera was off and people went home. Me and my best friend, Kevin Owens taught the Club a real lesson and you know what? I bet that's why we were not on the show tonight because we would have done it again!

    BOOKER T: Oh really? I'm sure everyone believes you, Chris.

    KEVIN OWENS: Enough! Enough about last week. The fact of the matter is, me and Chris Jericho, we are not being treated right here on Smackdown Live and things better start changing or I'm personally going to call Stephanie and beg that we both be traded to Raw and we will take the ratings with us! Firstly, Shane screwed up by not making Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho your first two picks! Secondly, it took three weeks to get one of us in the Main Event when me and Jericho are certified main event talent's! Thirdly, you allow your best two talents to be blindside attacked by outsiders like the Club last week and instead of suspending them and throwing them off the show.. You leave Y2KO off the show instead?! This is a joke!

    CHRIS JERICHO: The truth is.. Shane Mcmahon has always been jealous of Chris Jericho. Shane shuffles around and does his little dance but he's never danced with the stars like Jericho has, baby! And we all know that WCW went under because the best in the world at what ever he does left! So Eric has always held a grudge! But what is not acceptable is taking it out on my best friend, Kevin Owens too. So listen up, Shane, Eric, unless things start changing and we get some respect around here- Monday nights are going to be Raw Is Jericho and the Kevin Owens show once again and you'll both be out of a job! Do you understand what I'm telling you right now?! Huh?!

    RENEE YOUNG: Well it's clear that both of you are very frustrated right now but it could be said that both of you have had a chance to impress here on Smackdown. I mean, you lost to Ryder recently Jericho and then off course in that great match last week- you lost to Finn Balor, Owens. However, with the Battle Royal being open next week to everyone on the roster, you guys will have another opportunity to enter the World Heavyweight Championship match at SummerSlam. I have to ask- It's one spot- one opportunity- Is that going to be a problem for both of you and your friendship?
    CHRIS JERICHO: You wanna' know something Renee? There's a reason why I bring this with me, everywhere I go.. *Jericho raises his clipboard and pen* And it's because every now and then, someone needs to be put on the list because of a stupid question.. So.. Guess what.. Renee? *Clicks the pen* RENEE YOUNG, YOU JUST MADE THE LIST!!

    RENEE YOUNG: Hmmm.. Okay. I think I'm already on the list?

    CHRIS JERICHO: Well you've made it again! And you're going to keep making the list for as long as you're asking us stupid questions. Our friendship is unbreakable, Renee. You will see that next week when we enter the Battle Royal and we throw everyone else over the top rope and then we will both eliminate each other at the same time, our feet touching the floor at the same time and they will have no choice for us both to go to SummerSlam and challenging for the World Heavyweight Championship! Right Kevin?

    KEVIN OWENS: ...Yeah! Wait.. Both our feet touching the floor at the same time? That's actually pretty hard to do Chris? Look.. We are going to eliminate everyone else! Over the top rope they go! It will come down to me and Chris Jericho and you know what.. It don't matter who wins.. It could be ME! It might be.. Chris *Says very quietly as Jericho looks at Owens* Or it could be Me! Most likely me but either way, we both go to SummerSlam because we are a team.. No! We are like Brothers! *Jericho stops looking at Owens and smiles* We will then beat Apollo Crews, Seth Rollins, Neville and Finn Balor. Together we will be the World Heavyweight Champion!!

    Kevin Owens & Chris Jericho then get up and off their seats before embracing with a hug and leaving. Booker & Renee Young both turn to each other, puzzled at Y2KO's words before Booker speaks.

    BOOKER T: I'll give credit where it's due, those two are talented, Renee. Chris Jericho, one of the best of all time and Kevin Owens is on his way, Dawg. However, they both talking like they run this show. Naw, this show belong to the WWE Universe and just like everyone else on the roster, they've got to earn their spot. I think next week on Smackdown we gon' possibly see how strong this friendship is because only one can win the Battle Royal and go on to the hottest party of the summer! SummerSlam!



    RENEE YOUNG: You're right Book and that leads us on nicely. The PPv event of the summer is approaching and it's heating up. Let's take a look at the card thus far.

    "Welcome" by Fort Minor plays in the background as the Smackdown Live side of the SummerSlam card is shown on the screen..



    WWE Womens Championship Match
    Natalya vs. 'The Queen' Charlotte Flair (c)


    RENEE YOUNG: Can the only female graduate of the Hart Dungeon dethrone the self proclaimed Queen of the WWE and win the WWE Women's Championship?


    BOOKER T: Hart vs Flair, the heritage and the legacy before them has made this feud must see and it's gotten so personal. I just wonder if Dana Brooke will play a part in this story or will two of the greatest female athletes in the world today, tear down the house with one proving she's the greater?

    15 Years in the Making; Interpromotional Match
    'The Viper' Randy Orton vs. 'The Beast' Brock Lesnar


    BOOKER T: 15 years in the making! The Viper vs The Beast! You gotta' love it.

    RENEE YOUNG: Talk about personal Book, this one is certainly not done as one more stop before SummerSlam will see a contract signing take place on Monday Night Raw! Will Randy Orton take Brock to ViperVille? Or will Brock Lesnar make Randy Orton another casualty of Suplex City?!


    Interpromotional Match
    'The Franchise' John Cena vs. 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles


    RENEE YOUNG: The Franchise vs The Phenomenal One! This rivalry started being about respect and has quickly become about jealously! AJ wants what Cena has, that recognition, that demand of respect, even the fame and you would have to say, if he can beat John Cena at SummerSlam.. He will have it all. He would be the face that runs the place!

    BOOKER T: If's and but's, Renee. Big match John.. John Cena is man for the big occasion's and he ain't ready to hand over the keys to the throne, ya dig? AJ is going to need to bring his A game and his B and C game because you best believe John Cena gon' bring everything!

    WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match
    Finn Balor vs Apollo Crews vs Neville vs Seth Rollins vs TBA


    BOOKER T: Who's going to follow in the footsteps of legends, Renee? Ric Flair, Sting, Triple H, Rock, Hulk Hogan.. Who will be next?! I can't wait to find out- It's going to be awesome!

    RENEE YOUNG: Those four men are a match away from history! Will it be Apollo Crews? Seth Rollins? Finn Balor or maybe Neville? The wild card in this, the Battle Royal winner! For someone the prize of being the next World Heavyweight Champion is what awaits them. Folks, SummerSlam is no more then 2 weeks away but a lot can change as we still have our final go home show next week where the Franchise will go face to face with the Phenomenal one in a contract signing! Ladies and Gentleman, that's all we have time for, I'll see you next time! Good night everyone!
