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



    NEWS & RUMORS!

    - According to sources coming out of the WWE Performance Center various wrestlers from the independents and across the globe have recently attended try's outs in Florida with the aim of signing with World Wrestling Entertainment. It's believed that with the Main Roster now being split across two brands and the ever expanding NXT brand that WWE are looking to bolster their options and sign up the best talent available. Some of the confirmed names are Rich Swann, Gran Metalik, Mustafa Ali, Matt Riddle and Adam Cole. It's also been noted that William Regal recently visited the United Kingdom to scout the UK scene with the aim of potentially signing Tyler Bate, Pete Dunne, Mark Andrews, The Alpha Males, El Ligero, Nikki Storm and Trent Seven.

    - While Heath Slater being the hottest free agent in wrestling is a storyline being shown on WWE Tv the reality is that soon it could become a shoot. It's believed that WWE officials are unsure with plans for Heath Slater currently and have genuinely not decided on future plans for the former Nexus member. It's believed that Heath has perhaps run his course in the WWE and that once the storyline is concluded- both parties will be happy to end terms amicably and go their separate ways. With Heath's reputation as a worker there will unlikely be any lack of offers and speculation is that he could try his hand in Japans, NJPW.

    - WWE officials are said to be very happy with both Raw and Smackdown ratings and reviews since the formation of the brand split. Both recent episode's have drawn some of the company's highest ratings for quite some time with the build of Brock vs Orton and AJ vs Cena getting the majority of the credit as seen with the "invasion" angle recently. There is also believed to be healthy competition among both brands and their respective creative teams with both Raw and Smackdown officials aiming to be the number one show in the company.



    - As shown above, Paige recently took to social media to confirm that she is back in training and is desperate to get back in the ring and compete. Paige has not been used for quite some time on WWE tv and was granted the time to go home, rest and take care of some personal issues. The believe is that Paige will return as part of the Smackdown brand in time for their first solo PPv, Backlash. As for Paige's role, there is heavy rumors that she will return under a new gimmick with speculation rampant that she could be "Sister Abigail" of the Wyatt Family.

    - With SummerSlam approaching the rumor mill is in full effect and the latest speculation seems to suggest that a major return could be about to take place. Firstly..



    One rumor that's popped up over the past few days and gained a lot of traction involves The Undertaker showing up at SummerSlam, presumably to start a build for a major match at WrestleMania 33.

    The Undertaker's last appearance in WWE came at WrestleMania 32 when he defeated Shane McMahon in a Hell in a Cell bout. Despite the fact that Undertaker's win guaranteed he could continue to compete at WrestleMania, he took off his gloves in the ring, a sign that he was retiring. 'Taker reportedly confirmed his intention to friends and family after the show, then cancelled a string of appearances on WWE's upcoming European tour.

    Many fans and wrestling insiders expect that Undertaker will be back for at least one more match but at this moment in time- there are no signs to suggest that will be the case. Could we see 'Taker return and cost Cena the match against AJ? For years many believed that this match would take place at WrestleMania and with time running out- might Wrestlemania 33 be the final chance?

    Or, secondly..



    There was already some speculation that Goldberg could make a WWE return when the company made him a bonus character in their latest video game, and the latest news will only add fuel to that fire. We reported a couple of weeks back that Goldberg has been training very hard with the goal in mind that should a deal be agreed that one more match could be an option. The former WCW and WWE wrestler will reportedly be in New York City the same weekend, with SummerSlam 2016 set for Barclays Center in Brooklyn on to promote WWE 2K17 as part of a media event.

    While nothing is confirmed- this seems more plausible then 'Taker returning and it's been hinted for years that Brock and Goldberg have unfinished business inside the ring. Could we see Goldberg return and cost Brock the match against Randy Orton?

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



    15th August 2016 - Corpus Christi, Texas - American Bank Center

    Before the show begins- a video package plays as we see moments from last week's Raw. John Cena is shown beating Titus O'Neil- but Titus earns Cena's respect. The announcement of the Raw Womens Championship for Summerslam is also shown. We see Cesaro defeating Dolph Ziggler in a match before vowing to become Intercontinental Champion which led to an attack from The Miz! We see Paul Heyman talking trash about Randy Orton before Orton hits an RKO to Heyman out of nowhere. The clip ends when we see The Ascension defeating Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose due to Reigns/Ambrose's in-ring conflict before Ambrose nails Reigns with Dirty Deeds to end the show!

    The cameras cut to the American Bank Center...



    And the fireworks are exploding as Raw is LIVE in Corpus Christi! The fans in attendance can be seen cheering ahead of the anticipation for the show. The camera cuts to the commentators table as we have Michael Cole, Corey Graves & Mauro Ranallo. Ranallo welcomes the fans to Monday Night Raw as tonight is the go-home edition of Raw... and we are on the Road to Summerslam! Cole says that we have two separate sit-down interviews with Cesaro & The Miz lined up- along with an Ambrose Asylum segment with Roman Reigns as the guest to close the show! We also have a 6 Women Tag Team match in the main event as the duo of Summer Rae & Alexa Bliss team up with Eva Marie to take on Alicia Fox, Nikki Bella & Sasha Banks! Graves says that to kick things off... we have a contract signing for one of the inter-brand matches as Raw's Brock Lesnar goes face to face with Smackdown Live's Randy Orton!

    The cameras immediately cut to the ring as we see Raw's Commissioner in Stephanie McMahon! But behind her, there are three huge muscular security guards. The fans are excited, as there is a table set up in the center of the ring- as well as two chairs, with the contract for the Lesnar/Orton showdown being visible on the table. Stephanie has a mic in hand- as she's ready to speak.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON:
    The atmosphere in this arena is electric tonight- and I wouldn't have it any other way! As tonight will be the final Raw before Summerslam- myself & Daniel Bryan couldn't think of a better way to kick tonight off with a contract signing as we build up to one of the marquee matches at Summerslam- as BROCK LESNAR will be representing Monday Night Raw to take on Smackdown Live's RANDY ORTON!!

    Huge cheers from the fans as Stephanie continues.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON: This is a match which is 15 YEARS in the making- and it's bound to be a great one. But to fully assure that this contract signing goes off without a hitch... I have three of the biggest and baddest security guards to make sure that there is no chaos tonight. So without further ado... I'd like to welcome The Beast himself as well his advocate. They are none other than Paul Heyman... AND BROCK LESNAR!

    NEXT BIG THING

    A HUGE mixed reaction here tonight as the music of The Beast hits on the speaker system! And out comes none other than The Beast himself, followed by his advocate Paul Heyman. The two men make their way to the ring as Lesnar looks composed, whilst Heyman swaggers to the ring in style. They enter the ring before Heyman shakes McMahon's hand. Lesnar begins to eye up the security- giving them cold stares as he clearly has no fear. Lesnar then stands in the ring with his arms crossed- as Heyman immediately grabs a mic. He wastes no time in beginning to speak as this contract signing is underway.

    PAUL HEYMAN: Ladies and gentleman... my name is Paul Heyman! And I am the advocate of The NIGHT-MAYUURRR of Suplex City... The Beast Incarnate himself... BROOOOOOCK LESNAAAAAAAAAAAR!

    Mixed reaction from the fans.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    Stephanie McMahon- you said it yourself! The Beast vs. The Viper is a match which is 15 YEARS in the making. A COLOSSAL bout which pits two of the most dangerous men in the same ring. And I think that it's safe to say that the issues between my client... and Randy Orton have been very heated and intense. The WWE Universe is READY for this mouth-watering bout... but I think that I speak for everybody when I say that last week was a night where the line was CROSSED! And as for the uninitiated... who DON'T know what happened? Smackdown Live's very own Viper decided that it would be perfectly fine... to enter BROOOOCK LESNAAAAR's turf... and hit ME... the advocate of The Beast with an RKO!

    More mixed reactions- as some fans seem to still be excited from last week's big moment. But other fans aren't happy that their show was invaded by the opposition. Lesnar stands there- with a stone cold look on his face.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    Stephanie... I want to say THANK YOU. Thank you for coming out when you did- because you stopped a situation from spiraling out of control. Randy Orton thought that he made a statement when he came outta nowhere to hit ME with an RKO.. but you didn't make a powerful statement at all! All you did was take out a DEFENCELESS... and INNOCENT man! Randy... your actions were COWARDLY and UNJUSTIFIED!! I know that you have issues with my client... but there is NO JUSTIFICATION for going after ME!!

    Heyman raises his voice as he speaks- with his fury over last week being visible.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    But it doesn't matter how big of a moment that was to anybody... because my client OVERSHADOWED Orton's big moment- like The Beast always does! Anything that you do Orton... my client can do BETTER! And the proof is right there... because the REAL statement was made when my client invaded the enemy territory! The Beast arrived to Smackdown Live in absolute style when he came out of a limousine! This FREAK OF NATURE took out Smackdown Live's scrawny security- and he was looking for VENGEANCE!!

    Lesnar smiles as Heyman continues to speak.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    I mean- it was only a matter of time, right? It was obvious that my client was going to come for REVENGE... so it was a stupid choice for Smackdown Live not to hire the BEST security- because my client took them out with nothing but ease. And then my client WALTZED into the arena- with NO care for anybody in his way.. and he interrupted a match that just WASN'T meant to be. My client absolutely DESTROYED The Vaudevillians! He DESTROYED The Shining Stars! And he made it very CLEAR that on that specific night? Smackdown Live was NOT Smackdown Live... and it was indeed SUPLEX CITY BITCH!!

    The fans erupt with a 'SUPLEX CITY' chant as Heyman continues.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    So Randy Orton... you really need to consider yourself LUCKY because you got away with that one. You managed to avoid what would have been a DEVASTATING beating from my client- who was fighting on MY behalf. You got away with it... but this Sunday? That's NOT GONNA HAPPEN!! You will NOT escape my client. Last week on Raw- you proved that you don't have the guts to strike with my client in SIGHT... and at Summerslam... my client will make Randy Orton's life in Suplex City nothing but an absolute NIGHTMARE!! So Stephanie... if you wouldn't mind- my client is more than READY to sign the contract... but the real question is- is Randy Orton ready for BROOOOOOOOOOCK LESNAAAAAAAAAR?!?!

    Heyman has finished speaking as Lesnar nods in approval- clearly agreeing with his advocate's words, and Stephanie then hands Lesnar the contract for the match, as Lesnar grabs the pen from the table... before putting ink to the contract as Lesnar makes himself official for the match...

    VOICES

    There is a HUGE pop from the Corpus Christi fans tonight as The Viper is here!! Smackdown Live's very own Randy Orton makes his way to the ring with a serious look on his face- showing absolutely no nerves despite being in the enemy territory here tonight. Orton enters the ring, not taking his eyes off his opponent for Summerslam- as Orton's music stops.

    Orton stands his ground as Lesnar wants to go over there and beat his opponent's ass already- but Heyman manages to stop his client from doing so. The tension is at an absolute high as the fans are loving it! The two opponents begin to stare off from their positions, as Ranallo says that he's surprised the two men haven't ripped each other apart already. The fans begin to shout 'THIS IS AWESOME' as the two animals look as cold as ever. The Viper picks up the mic from the table, as he begins to speak.

    RANDY ORTON: There is A LOT of things that I need to say... but before I address my opponent for Summerslam...

    Orton points at Heyman.

    RANDY ORTON: I'm gonna start off by addressing YOU!

    The fans cheer, as Heyman looks on, showing a bit of fear following Orton's actions from last week.

    RANDY ORTON: What's up Paul? It's funny how you have A LOT to say when I'm not standing in this ring.. but as soon as I'm here- what do we get from you? Absolute silence. And there's clearly no denying that you must still be reeling from that RKO.. you speak about how you're a defenseless... and innocent man.. but it doesn't matter WHAT brand we're on. EVERYBODY in this building knows that you couldn't be innocent even if you wanted to be.

    Cheers again from the fans, as Orton continues to speak.

    RANDY ORTON:
    It felt good when I got you Heyman... but the question on my mind was... where was your client? Where were you Brock?! When I attacked your advocate.. I could have put him in intensive care for good!! But what if I did do that Brock? What if... I lined Heyman up like I have done to many, many people before... and took off Paul Heyman's head with a vicious Punt Kick?

    Orton ponders to himself as everybody in the arena is glued to this confrontation.

    RANDY ORTON:
    If there's anybody that would've hurt the most... it's you Brock. Because without Heyman.. you couldn't talk a big game on the mic without slipping a little... you wouldn't have NO ONE to hype up your matches so your matches would sell. And if your matches don't sell well enough... then you lose what is the best thing about you- the attraction. On your own... you are The Beast- but everybody knows there isn't a Beast without Paul Heyman!

    The fans agree as Heyman begins to chuckle to himself.

    RANDY ORTON: To say that this rivalry between The Beast & The Viper is personal would be an understatement! We've spoke about each other's families... we've brought up the mistakes that we've made. We've spoke about everything that we have done in our careers.. and every single thing that me & Brock Lesnar have accomplished individually will be put to the test at Summerslam... and I've said it many times before... and I will say this again...

    I AM READY for you Brock! The moment that I challenged you to that match.. I KNEW what I was getting myself in for. I KNOW the threat that you pose.. I'm not going to stand here and underestimate you Brock.. you're damn right that I'm gonna go to Suplex City.. and I KNOW you're going to make my life a living hell.. but I'm ready for it. I'm prepared for this.. I've been prepared from the moment I came back for action.


    Orton speaks with fire and passion.

    RANDY ORTON: But on the other hand... Paul? You're an easy target Paul.. but that's not the reason why I hit you with an RKO. I did it because I'm sick and tired of listening to you constantly attempting to talk a big game... trying to build up your client to everybody when he doesn't need building up. EVERYBODY in this arena knows what Brock Lesnar is capable of.. but you STILL run your mouth like you're the one who is going face to face with me at Summerslam. I have heard absolutely enough from you.. and I don't want to hear from the walrus anymore... I want to hear your bastard of a client speak for himself!

    HUGE pop as the fans begin to shout 'OOOOHHHH' which provokes an even more angry Lesnar. Lesnar is refusing to take it- as he looks to walk over to Orton... but again, it takes Heyman, Stephanie & members of the security to calm The Beast down. Orton picks up the pen, and he signs the contract- as the dream match is finally made OFFICIAL!! But Orton isn't finished. He grabs the mic again, and speaks.

    RANDY ORTON: So Paul... I have done what has been required to do. Your client has signed the contract... I have signed the contract... so now? Why don't you do what everybody wants you to do... hand the mic over to your client so we can see if he has the balls to repeat everything that comes of his advocates mouth?!

    The tension just continues to increase and boil up as Heyman grabs the mic again- to the disapproval of Orton who simply sighs at the thought of Heyman talking again.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    Oh... you want to hear MY client speak? But the truth is Randy... my client DOESN'T need to talk!! My client let's his actions do the talking... and you must be sorely mistaken if you think that my client will listen to you. You must be having another one of your episodes if you think that my client will do what YOU tell him to do... because my client doesn't listen to ANYBODY. He doesn't even listen to me.. and the only reason why my client hasn't tore you apart already is because we're standing in this ring in a civilized manner to air our dirty laundry.

    Heyman pauses, before looking over to Orton with a face of determination.

    PAUL HEYMAN: So we need you to understand something... we need to understand that at Summerslam? It's not just going to about The Viper being taken to Suplex City.. you're not just going to enter the biggest fight of your life. You're entering the most DANGEROUS zone in Suplex City's golden history. You see... I have stated many times about what my client has done to the likes of The Undertaker... John Cena... and Roman Reigns. He took them all the Suplex City.. and he despised them all. He STILL despises them all... even to this day...

    Heyman points at Orton.

    PAUL HEYMAN:
    But YOU? You are the WORST. My client doesn't despise ANYBODY as much as he despises you. Nobody has ever spoke about my client in public... the way that you have. The way that you have antagonized my client is something that will NEVER be forgiven or forgotten. You PROVOKED my client... therefore my client will VICTIMIZE YOU. My client is going to re-injure your shoulder... and tear you apart limb by limb. And make no mistake about it... my client is going to be The Legend that KILLS The Legend Killer! The Beast is going to SLAY The Viper... and at Summerslam?

    My client is going to DECIMATE you back to your hospital bed... and the people will no longer see you as The Viper that you used to be... and instead? They will see you for you truly are... nothing but an absolute DUD. And do you want to know what the worst thing about it is? The worst thing is that BROOOOOOOOOCK LESNAAAAAAAAAAAAR will hurt you so bad...

    That your wife... and your KIDS... will NEVER look at you the same way again you washed up DRUGGY!!

    BUT ORTON HAS HAD ENOUGH!! He grabs the table- and he THROWS it out of the ring in anger as the fans begin to cheer. Orton is set to grab Heyman- but Lesnar steps up to The Viper before pushing him out of the way with so much force that Orton is sent all the way the corner. Heyman & Stephanie manage to exit the ring to as they leave the security guards to take care of the potential mess. One of the security guards begins to grab hold of Orton... and the others grab hold of Lesnar to prevent the two men from brawling! One of the security guards has hold of Lesnar... but Lesnar wriggles out of it before spinning the security guard around...



    GERMAN SUPLEX TO THE SECURITY GUARD!!! The fans cheer as the other two security guards try to grab hold of Lesnar to stop this situation from getting even more chaotic, leaving Randy Orton on his own. However, Lesnar doesn't stop putting up a fight as he grabs hold of another security member... ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX!!! The fans chant 'SUPLEX CITY' as Lesnar is FIRED up tonight... but in the ring- the final security guard is left with The Beast. The security guard is just as big as The Beast... but the look on the poor man's face suggests that he knows what he's in for as he pleads and begs for The Beast to let him go- but Lesnar grabs the man before putting him position to finish him off...

    F5! F5 TO THE FINAL SECURITY GUARD!!! The fans are going absolutely crazy tonight as Lesnar continues to be fired up like the beast that he is. As Lesnar continues to go wild... little does he know that Orton- who was clearly playing possum on the floor... is secretly eyeing up The Beast... but as soon as The Beast turns around...



    RKOOOOOOOOOOOO! RANDY ORTON NAILS BROCK LESNAR WITH AN RKO FROM OUTTA NOWHERE!!! The entire arena has ERUPTED as The Viper takes The Beast down!! Orton begins to psyche himself up... but Cole says oh no! Orton lines Lesnar up for a potential move with devastating consequences... as Ranallo says that Orton doesn't wanna see Lesnar make it to Summerslam! Orton begins to set Lesnar up for a Punt Kick... and this time- there is NOTHING stopping him despite screams from Heyman & Stephanie McMahon. Orton charges at Lesnar as he looks set to finish The Beast off...

    BUT LESNAR ROLLS OUT OF THE RING!! The fans begin to boo, but Graves says that this was the best choice Lesnar could've possibly made. Heyman helps his client compose himself, as Lesnar still looks dazed from the RKO. Orton begins to taunt Lesnar from the ring- screaming 'IT ONLY TAKES ONE RKO!!' as he has clearly proved his point here tonight. Orton does his signature pose as Lesnar looks on- with the fans continuing to go nuts for the chaos that has opened the show.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    We head back from our first break of the night as the camera immediately cuts to the announcers table. Ranallo talks about how we've just witnessed an explosive confrontation between Brock Lesnar & Randy Orton, which ended in absolute chaos as Lesnar took out members of security- before being RKO'd by Randy Orton! Cole says that it was the perfect way to kick tonight's go home edition of Raw off, and their match at Summerslam is going to be a blockbuster bout. Graves moves on, and says that up next- we have our first match of the night as Sami Zayn takes on Erik Rowan!

    SHEEPHERDER

    The music of Erik Rowan blasts on the PA system as Rowan comes out to a mild reaction of boos & cheers from the crowd. Rowan makes his way to the ring as Graves talks about how Rowan being split up from The Wyatts has clearly had a big effect of him, as Rowan is clearly lost without the guidance of Smackdown Live's Bray Wyatt. Rowan enters the ring- as he waits for his opponent.

    WORLD'S APART

    Corpus Christi ERUPT with a huge pop as Sami Zayn's music hits! Zayn comes out, and he begins to shuffle on his way to the ring, with quite a moody face. Zayn enters the ring, as some chants of 'OLE!' can be heard. Cole states that Zayn has had his fair share of wins and losses over the last few weeks- and he seems set to pick up some momentum here tonight.

    Match 1. Sami Zayn vs. Erik Rowan

    Finish:
    This match has gone on for 8 minutes so far- as Erik Rowan has been the aggressor, getting the most offense in. Sami Zayn has been the lovable underdog as you would expect- with the fans rooting him despite Rowan dominating. Back to the action, Rowan goes for a Big Boot to the face of Zayn- but Zayn sees it coming, and manages to duck it.

    Zayn spins Rowan around, and goes for a DDT but Rowan wriggles out of it... before locking Zayn in a Bearhug! Rowan increases the pressure as Sami does his best to break out of the hold, and Sami eventually does so as he grabs hold of the ropes. Rowan is forced to break the hold, as Rowan then begins to argue with the referee.

    He turns back to Zayn... but Zayn blasts Rowan with a Dropkick which sends Rowan to the corner. Zayn begins to hype himself up before running towards Rowan... HELLUVA KICK TO ROWAN!! Rowan lands on the canvas, as Zayn goes for the cover... and Sami Zayn picks up the victory!!


    Spoiler:

    WINNER: SAMI ZAYN


    The fans cheer loudly for The Underdog from the Underground as Sami Zayn has defeated Erik Rowan here tonight! Zayn eventually gets up, as Rowan slides out of the ring- and the referee raises Zayn's hand in victory... however, Cole talks about how Zayn doesn't look happy at all following this victory. The referee leaves Zayn to it- as Zayn calls for a mic to be given to him. Zayn waits for a while as he is eventually given one, and he's set to speak as he clearly has something on his mind.

    SAMI ZAYN: So how is everybody in Corpus Christi doing tonight?!

    Fans respond with cheers as Sami speaks.

    SAMI ZAYN:
    Man... I just fought tooth and nail in this match. Erik Rowan might have lost- but he just gave me one hell of a fight... and I haven't took a beating like this in quite a while. I know I should be happy after competing in such an amazing arena with great fans... and I managed to come out on top tonight... but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't frustrated right now.

    Sami continues as the fans are listening.

    SAMI ZAYN: Battleground was another huge night in my career- because I came out of an intense match against my long-time friend turned rival... Kevin Owens!

    Boos for the mention of Kevin Owens.

    SAMI ZAYN:
    And due to the brand extension... Owens got drafted to Smackdown- while I got drafted to Raw. I defeated Owens in a match that I put my absolute all into.. and that match was the biggest match of my career- and I defeated my rival.. but I'm just frustrated because I have nothing to show for it.

    Sami has a face of frustration, as he's not holding back here tonight.

    SAMI ZAYN:
    I've been having great matches on Raw... I lost to Roman Reigns a few weeks ago- but I gave him one hell of a challenge... and I know for a fact that I did because I had every single person in the arena that night chanting 'This is Awesome.' I also lost a Fatal Four Way match to gain the chance to compete for the Intercontinental Champion.. a match that I didn't get pinned in- but still lost.

    The fans chant 'OLE!' repeatedly to show that despite Sami's losses, they're still fully behind him.

    SAMI ZAYN:
    And this Sunday? We have the Hottest Party of the Summer in Summerslam! But my biggest gripe is... that I'm not even featured on the card. Despite the fact that I haven't been able to win all of my matches.. I don't think anybody can deny the work that I have been putting in over the last couple of weeks. So Corpus Christi... I want to know what you all think.

    Do you think Sami Zayn deserves a chance to compete at Summerslam?!

    A HUGE pop for the underdog as Sami's frustrated face immediately turns into a smile, as the WWE Universe have clearly lifted his spirits up. Sami nods in approval as he goes to speak again.

    FLIGHT OF THE VALKYRIES

    The fans begin to chant 'YES!' repeatedly and loudly as Daniel Bryan comes out to the stage! Bryan joins in with the chants along with the crowd, before looking over to the ring at Sami Zayn... with a serious look on his face as he has a mic in hand. Bryan is set to speak.

    DANIEL BRYAN:
    Well first of all- Sami Zayn! I'd like to congratulate you on defeating Erik Rowan tonight... it was one hell of a match, and you showed a lot of heart. You proved that you are indeed one of the hardest workers in the back, and I have nothing but respect for you.

    The fans cheer as Sami nods.

    DANIEL BRYAN:
    You talk about how you're frustrated... and I feel your pain Sami- I really do. I know how it feels when you try your absolute best to succeed... and sometimes it just isn't enough for some people. You think that you deserve a chance to be on the Summerslam card... these people think you deserve to be on the card... and so do I!

    Huge pop as Sami looks on, and Bryan continues.

    DANIEL BRYAN: So I'm going to make a huge announcement. I plan to make sure that the Raw matches of Summerslam are nothing but the absolute best- therefore you WILL be in a match.

    Another pop as Sami looks very happy.

    DANIEL BRYAN:
    And as for your opponent? Well... I'm sure that everybody knows there will be a debut at Summerslam... and I couldn't think of a better opponent for this person than you Sami- because I know you will go out there, and you WILL deliver whether you win or lose. So at Summerslam... Sami... you will go one on one with someone that you know very well! He is the man that will be making his debut at the hottest party of the summer. He is The Greatest Man That Ever Lived...

    AUSTIN ARIES!!

    The Toyata Center EXPLODES with a huge pop as Bryan makes a huge announcement! Bryan's music begins to play, as the fans begin to chant 'YES!' before Bryan heads to the back. Sami Zayn looks on- and he can be seen pondering to himself, but he's clearly a happy man tonight following this big announcement. Ranallo says that Austin Aries vs. Sami Zayn for Summerslam is going to be one HELL of a match!!

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The camera cuts backstage as we see Sasha Banks- with Corpus Christi respond with a huge pop for The Boss! Banks looks into the camera as she speaks.

    SASHA BANKS: I have been pursuing the Womens Championship ever since I made my debut in the WWE... and every single opportunity that I've had to win the title- I've come short. It's my dream to be the Womens Champion.. I have been dreaming of this moment ever since the little girl in me was watching the likes of Eddie Guerrero wrestle their way to the top.

    Fans can be heard cheering for the mention of the great Eddie Guerrero.

    SASHA BANKS:
    At Summerslam? I'm going to walk into the 6-Pack Challenge Elimination Match, and I'm going to accomplish my dream to become the FIRST ever Raw Womens Champion!

    And you can bank on that.

    The Boss smiles before showing off her 'Boss' ring as the camera cuts back to the announcers table.

    The camera cuts to the announcers table- as Ranallo talks about how The Boss is confident heading into the 6 Pack Womens Challenge Match at Summerslam, which will indeed now be an Elimination bout! Cole says that extra stipulation of Elimination rules will make the match even more intense. Graves agrees, and says that up next- we have an 8 Man Tag Team Match!

    TEAM SPIRIT

    The music of The Spirit Squad hits as Kenny & Mickey come out to a light reaction of boos from the crowd. Cole talks about how they haven't had the best of luck since their debut- but maybe tonight's 8 Man Tag Team match can change this? The Spirit Squad enter the ring, as they wait for their partners.

    #MMMGORGEOUS

    Tyler Breeze comes out- representing Breezango as Breeze begins to take pictures of himself with his selfie stick...

    CHA CHA LA LA

    And out comes Breeze's partner... Fandango! The two men make their way to the ring- as Ranallo says that Breezango have been very hit and miss with their win/loss record since Battleground, but this match could change their momentum easily. The two men enter the ring as they join Spirit Squad. Both teams seem to be very civil with each other as they await their opponents.

    ELITE

    The fans erupt with cheers as American Alpha come out to the stage to make their way to the ring! Cole says that #1 contenders to the Tag Team Championships team up with their opponents for Summerslam.. and this should be fun to watch!

    "OOOOOHHHHHHH CORPUS CHRISTI

    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

    HUGE pop for the WWE Tag Team Champions as The New Day come out to the stage! The three men begin to shimmy their way to the ring. Graves points out that the trio would usually be speaking as they walk to the ring- but they must mean business. The New Day enter the ring- as they join their partners... and opponents for Summerslam, apart from Xavier Woods who stands outside the ring. The tension between the both teams is visible, as the match is on!

    Match 2: Breezango & The Spirit Squad vs. American Alpha & The New Day

    Finish: The babyface teams have absolutely dominated this match- as well as Breezango who have got a tremendous amount of offense in, unlike Spirit Squad, who were looking to get payback from their loss to The New Day last week, but they couldn't bring much to the table. Currently, Big E & Fandango are the legal men- as Big E grabs Fandango to nail him with a Belly-To-Belly Suplex... but Fandango manages to twist out of it, before nailing Big E with a Dropkick! Fandango heads over to the turnbuckle, as he jumps up- and he looks to nail Big E with his finisher. He launches for the Diving Leg Drop...

    But Big E moves out of the way as Fandango crashes onto the canvas! Fandango begins to stirr in the ring as Big E crawls over to his team-mates, with Jason Jordan, Chad Gable & Kofi Kingston all pleading to be tagged in. And as you would expect, it's Kofi who Big E is attempting to crawl over to- due to the obvious connection right there. Big E leaps over to tag Kofi... but Chad Gable puts his hand forward to tap Big E's hand as Gable is in the match!

    Kofi doesn't look impressed at all- as Gable heads into the ring. Fandango has tagged in Mickey from The Spirit Squad- as Mickey charges towards Gable with a Clothesline.. but Gable hits Mickey with a Crossbody! This leads to Tyler Breeze entering the ring, and Jason Jordan intervenes to nail Breeze with a German Suplex! Following this, Jordan rushes over to knock Kenny off the ropes as American Alpha have the momentum. The fans are rallying behind them- as The New Day look on. Jordan lifts Mickey up from the canvas- as American Alpha are set to finish Mickey off...

    GRAND AMPLITUDE!! The fans go nuts as Jordan goes behind the apron- with The New Day giving Jordan the evilest looks. Gable goes for the cover on Mickey... and the faces pick up the win!


    Spoiler:

    WINNERS: AMERICAN ALPHA & THE NEW DAY


    After the match, Jordan joins his partner in the ring- as the two men embrace. On the other hand, The New Day also enter the ring, as the referee has got their tag team title belts, which he hands over to the champions. The referee raises The New Day & American Alpha's hand, as he's in the middle of the two teams.

    The referee walks away, leaving both teams in the ring together. The New Day's serious looks immediately turn into laughter, as they begin to sarcastically applaud and clap at Gable getting the advantage with the tag over Kofi. This leads to Kofi shouting 'That was disrespectful' as Gable can be heard replying with 'No disrespect, I did what I had to do.' The New Day raise their titles high in the air- as American Alpha look on. American Alpha motion that the titles will be around their waists.

    Ranallo says that these two teams will go face to face at Summerslam in what should be an excellent match. American Alpha seem to have the most momentum going into this match- but The New Day have the veteran's advantage!

    We're back from another break as we immediately cut to the announcers table. Cole talks about how up next, we have a sit-down interview between The Miz & Charly Caruso as we continue the build for the Last Chance Intercontinental Championship match at Summerslam between Miz & Cesaro! Graves talks about how this match has big stakes, and this is as important as it gets for a title with such great magnitude.

    The cameras cut to the interview room- as we see Charly Caruso.

    CHARLY CARUSO: Ladies and gentleman, my guests at this time... the Intercontinental Champion- The Miz and his wife Maryse!



    The camera zooms out to reveal The Miz & Maryse sitting down as they look ready for this interview.

    CHARLY CARUSO: So Miz... your rivalry with Cesaro has been boiling up for a very long time. Cesaro claimed that you have took many shortcuts to retain your title.. how you feel about these comments?

    The Miz has a face of disgust as he speaks.

    THE MIZ:
    Let me be perfect honestly with you Caruso... whatever Cesaro says or claims- it is ALL false. None of it is true. I have NEVER taken any short-cuts to retain this title.. I have defended this title fair and square like a true man. It doesn't matter HOW I defend this title.. all that matters is that I defend it- and I WIN.

    Because in the record books.. nobody will see how I won the title. All that it will say.. is that The Miz has defeated Cesaro over and over and over again. All my wins COUNT, whereas all of Cesaro's losses count too. It all adds up, Caruso! We have had many, many interactions throughout our careers, but 2016 is the most relevant year of our rivalry because the stakes are bigger than ever.

    And last week, when I attacked Cesaro.. it wasn't because he just finished a match. I did it to send a message, for all the suffering that Cesaro has put me through! I want to know why this match at Summerslam is MY Last Chance?! I have done NOTHING but bust my ass in that ring to make this title the most prestigious in the WWE today.. and there is no doubt that I have accomplished my job! I have defended this title successful against EVERYBODY who has come before me... and I didn't do it just so I can get an unjust stipulation attached to my SACRED name!!

    This stipulation should only apply to Cesaro, NOT ME. Cesaro is the man that has constantly come up short in his quest to win this title, whereas I have been the superior man! I have said this before- and I will say it again... Cesaro is absolutely NOTHING compared to me.

    CHARLY CARUSO: That's completely understandable, I mean you have indeed defended your title successfully on multiple occasions. But last week, we had the announcement from Daniel Bryan that Maryse would be banned from ringside. What was going through your mind when the GM announced that?

    The Miz begins to get even more cold as Maryse doesn't look impressed with the decision.

    THE MIZ:
    What was going through my mind? I was angry... how the hell would you feel if your wife was unable to see one of the marquee matches of her husband's career?! I don't have my wife by my side this Sunday.. and I feel sorry for her. I feel sorry for the fact that she will NOT be able to witness me CRUSHING Cesaro to a pulp, therefore shattering his dreams to gain MY title!

    Miz looks at Maryse as his wife responds.

    MARYSE: It's such a shame I won't be there baby... but I have every bit of FAITH in you.

    Maryse looks towards Charly Caruso.

    MARYSE: I have no problems with whatever happens to Cesaro at Summerslam... because my husband WILL retain his title. He is a winner- and that's what winners do!

    The Miz nods in approval as Maryse states her words.

    THE MIZ: At Summerslam- Cesaro will get EVERYTHING he deserves. But who the hell does he have? The Cesaro Section? Well it's a shame because I don't feel sorry for Cesaro! All Cesaro does is lose- and then all his doubters begin to build up sympathy for him.. well let me break the news to everybody again.

    Cesaro does NOT connect with his STUPID Cesaro Section. He does NOT deliver in the ring. You can't win ANY match with the help of the fans, because I haven't needed them from the moment I came into this business. I have goddamn proved it by main eventing Wrestlemania... and by being WWE Champion! I have defeated a top superstar like John Cena on the biggest show of them all... but what has Cesaro done? He hasn't ever grabbed the brass ring in his miserable career.


    Miz continues to take shots as he isn't backing down.

    CHARLY CARUSO: I understand- so overall, you clearly feel that you are just as overlooked by the WWE as Cesaro is, so do you feel that the people are doubting you as Intercontinental Champion?

    THE MIZ: Do you want to know what's really going on? It's that NOBODY wants to see The Miz in the Intercontinental Championship title picture, because I have DOMINATED this division! Daniel Bryan doesn't want to see me as the champion, so he's added all these stupid stipulations to give me a disadvantage. Not one superstar.. and I mean NOBODY has came close to beating me. Not Darren Young. Not Zack Ryder. Not Sami Zayn.. Not Kevin Owens. So what makes Cesaro think he can beat me, HUH?!

    I am the man that's made that has made this Intercontinental title, the most prestigious title in the WWE today. I have made this title relevant, I have put everything into defending this title like a true man. Cesaro, you are NOT going to take that away from me. You wish that you were me. You wish that I had my looks.. and you wish that you could talk like me on the microphone. I mean... have you seen the way he dresses? He comes out- all suited and booted, only because I DO!

    Well guess what Cesaro? You couldn't even lace my shoes, and I VOW to put you down because you are a fraud! And at Summerslam? I will make sure that you NEVER compete for the Intercontinental Championship again as long as I am the champion! Because I'm The Miz... and I'M AWESOME!!

    The Miz begins to smirk before looking to his wife- and the duo share a kiss, even in front of Caruso, as Caruso thanks them for their time.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The cameras head to the announcers table- Graves talks about how those were huge words from The Miz during the sit-down interview. Cole says that we find out this Sunday if The Miz can back all of his words up, and defeat Cesaro. Ranallo moves on because up next, The Human Wrecking Ball competes. We go over to the ring- as we see a local talent named Wilson in the ring, ready for action!

    MEAT ON THE TABLE

    The music of Ryback blasts on the PA system- as the Texas crowd respond with light boos for The Big Guy! Ryback makes his way to the ring, as he enters the ring- eyeing up Wilson who looks pretty terrified of Ryback. Cole says that he doesn't fancy Wilson's chances tonight, as Ryback begins to laugh at his opponent- before the bell rings.

    Match 3. Wilson vs. Ryback

    Finish:
    As the match begun, Wilson begged and pleaded for Ryback to not destroy him... and Ryback nailed Wilson with a devastating Meathook Clothesline as Wilson went flying. As expected, Ryback dominated this match- and he absolutely demolished his opponent. The crowd also displayed sympathy for Wilson as he was being destroyed, and some members of the crowd even did a little 'Let's Go Wilson' chant.

    The finish came when Wilson still stood absolutely no chance as Ryback would continue to destroy him like a rag-doll in the ring! Ryback grabbed Wilson, who was out cold- and he lifted him up on his shoulders before nailing a Shell Shocked! Ryback went for the cover... and he got the win!


    Spoiler:

    WINNER: RYBACK


    After the match, Ryback begins to celebrate his victory. He repeatedly laughs at his fallen opponent, as Cole says that Wilson just couldn't handle The Big Guy. Ryback begins to shout Feed Me More in the ring as Ranallo says that Ryback continues to build up momentum as he has racked up two wins in two weeks. Graves questions what's next for Ryback, as he is looking to make a name for himself again.

    The cameras cut backstage as we see none other than Alicia Fox! She speaks to the camera and she is full of fire and excitement.

    ALICIA FOX: I've been in the WWE for over NINE years now! I have gave my all to this Womens division, and I am a veteran in this new era! Those other women in the 6 Pack Challenge Elimination match? I hate some of them.. and I respect some of them- but they're ALL gonna learn why experience matters the most because I'm walking out of Brooklyn as the Raw Womens Champion.

    Alicia speaks her words as she is clearly set on winning at Summerslam, and we head to another break.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    We go backstage again as we see Nikki Bella warming up to a huge pop from the fans! Nikki looks into thecamera, and she speaks with determination.

    NIKKI BELLA:
    I thought that my career was going to end, and I didn't know if I'd be back in the ring. But I showed determination. I showed spirit. I fought while I was injured, and I rehabbed to be in better shape than ever. I am fearless because I didn't let my injury break me...

    And the competition is tough, I'm not going to deny that- but that just makes me even more motivated to work harder in the ring, and do my best to overcome these obstacles. I used to be at the top of the Womens division before.. and I want to taste that again. At Summerslam... I'm coming back for my throne.


    Nikki continues her warm up in preparation for tonight's main event as the cameras cut to the ring.

    The lights immediately go out, as the atmosphere is dark and gloomy...


    REBELLION

    And the fans respond with loud boos as The Ascension come out with a spotlight on them. Cole says that the devastating duo are here! The Ascension make their way to the ring, as Ranallo talks about how The Ascension have been on great form in the last couple of weeks, especially with a win over Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose last week! Graves agrees, and he says that this is the real Ascension that dominated in NXT- and it looks like they've found their groove. The Ascension enter the ring... and the lights go back on. The two men look towards the stage...

    SO CLOSE NOW

    The music of The Usos hits- as the fans immediately respond with cheers. The twin brothers come out to the stage, and make their way to the ring with eyes on their opponents. Cole points out how the brothers don't have face-paint on again. Graves says that this must be a response from The Usos to their losing streak with a more serious... street side of The Usos! Ranallo says that this will be a tough test as The Usos battle The Ascension!

    Match 4: The Ascension vs. The Usos

    Finish:
    This tag team match has been full of excitement with back and forth action from both tag teams! The Ascension have got the most offense in tonight as expected, but The Usos got a great amount of offense in too. The Ascension have been the brawlers in this match, whereas The Usos have been more resilient with their high flying.

    Back to the action, Jey Uso & Konnor are the legal men. Jey Uso goes for a Running Forearm Splash to the face of Konnor with force but Konnor manages to see it coming- as he ducks the move! Both men turn around... and it's Konnor who strikes with a Clothesline to Jey Uso as Jey goes down! Konnor begins to scream as he tags in Viktor. Viktor enters the ring, and emerges with a vicious kick to Jey Uso's face! The two men go to double team Jey Uso...

    But Jimmy Uso hits the ring! Viktor rushes over to take care of his problem with a European Uppercut- but he misses as Jimmy Uso moves out of the way- and Viktor hits the apron. Viktor turns around... SUPERKICK FROM JIMMY USO! And Viktor goes flying out of the ring as Jimmy looks towards Konnor. Konnor & Jimmy Uso begin to stare down as Jey Uso is slowly getting back up to his feet.

    Jimmy charges at Konnor with a Clothesline but Konnor grabs hold of Jimmy's arms as Jimmy is in trouble... but Jey Uso makes the save as he pulls Jimmy off of Konnor! And the two brothers double team as they throw vicious shots to the face of Konnor before taking a few steps back... DOUBLE DROPKICK TO KONNOR! And both members of The Ascension are outside the ring- as The Usos begin to get themselves riled up with the fans cheering! The brothers get up on individual turnbuckles, as The Ascension are back up to their feet... and The Usos launch... DOUBLE SUICIDE DIVE TO THE ASCENSION!! The fans cheer loudly again as both teams are down, and as time goes on- both teams are looking to get back up.

    After 2 minutes, Jey Uso manages to get up- as he picks up Viktor, and he puts Viktor in the ring. He enters the ring himself, as he gets up on the top rope again. He looks set to hit a Superfly Splash onto Viktor- but from out of nowhere, Konnor throws Jey Uso off the top rope! Jimmy Uso is back up to his feet, and he charges at Konnor but Konnor grabs hold of Jimmy- and throws him into the steel steps! Konnor rushes back to the ring- as he helps Viktor retreat as soon as he can. Viktor eventually gets up, and the two men pick Jimmy up before setting him up for their finisher... FALL OF MAN TO JEY USO!! Graves thinks that it's all over now but The Usos were so close! Viktor goes for the cover- as the referee counts... and The Ascension pick up the win!


    Spoiler:

    WINNER: THE ASCENSION


    After the match, The Ascension stand tall in the ring as Ranallo states that the devastating duo must be the most deadly tag team in this division right now. Konnor & Viktor do their Ascension pose, before exiting the ring. On the other hand, The Usos are reeling in pain- outside the ring, as they watch The Ascension head to the back. Cole begins to question what might be on The Usos' mind right now? Graves states that they have been on a losing streak recently- and they haven't held the Tag Team title gold since February 2015. Graves wonders what it's going to take for The Usos to climb back to the top?

    Meanwhile, the cameras cut backstage as we see none other than Eva Marie! The fans erupt with LOUD boos for Eva Marie as she looks into the camera.

    EVA MARIE:
    I came to the WWE to make a name for myself- and when I made my Raw return... I had all the eyes on me. Every single person in that arena looked at me in awe as I showed them all what true beauty really is.

    And at Summerslam? My first ever PPV match since I was drafted to Raw- I will be competing for the vacant Raw Womens Championship. Let's just say- at Summerslam... I will prove why Raw is All Red Everything when I win the 6-Pack Elimination Challenge Match!

    Eva Marie blows a kiss to the camera as we go to another break.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<
    We immediately go over to the announcers table as Cole talks about how up next- we have another sit-down interview backstage with the #1 contender to the Intercontinental Championship- Cesaro! Graves says that earlier on, Charly Caruso spoke to the The Miz, and we heard the champion's motives loud and clear. Ranallo says that it's time to hear from The Swiss Cyborg himself, as this rivalry has been very personal!

    The cameras cut to the sit-down interview area as we see Mike Rome.

    MIKE ROME:
    Ladies and gentleman, I am sitting in the sit-down interview room right now with the number one contender himself- The Swiss Cyborg... Cesaro!



    The camera zooms out to reveal Cesaro, as fans can be heard cheering. Rome speaks again.

    MIKE ROME:
    So Cesaro, at Summerslam- you have an important match with high stakes as you battle for the Intercontinental Championship. However, if you fail to win- this match will also be your last for the title. Now, there has been a lot of tense moments especially when The Miz said that you couldn't connect with the WWE Universe... are you looking to prove all your critics wrong on Sunday?

    CESARO:
    You're right Mike- this match is going to be make or break for me. You see, my biggest critic here in the WWE is not The Miz, and it has always been Vince McMahon. I respect Vince and his opinions, because without him- there wouldn't be WWE today.. but at the same time? I feel like I have been proving him wrong ever since he said I couldn't connect.

    This whole idea that I don't connect is false in my eyes, because everytime I go out there- I get a reaction. When my music hits, the fans go nuts and they raise their Cesaro Section signs. When the WWE Universe sees me in the ring- I put in everything and they always go crazy. The people love to somebody get neutralized, or a superstar getting swinged in the air!

    But as for The Miz? Well he's just repeating everything Vince McMahon said about me- and he's doing it for the attention. The Miz is a bonafide attention seeker. I don't listen to criticism from people like The Miz because he talks nothing but rubbish... and I'm looking forward to proving The Miz wrong at Summerslam.


    Cesaro speaks with determination as Rome smiles. Rome asks Cesaro another question.

    MIKE ROME: Now, you have faced The Miz multiple times with the title on the line- but you have yet to defeat him to win the title. You pointed out all the short-cuts that The Miz has took, and at Summerslam- The Miz' wife Maryse won't be at ringside. Do you feel as if this is an advantage for you?

    CESARO: Definitely. I mean, the odds are stacked against the both of us right now. It's going to be a fair match at Summerslam. Maryse isn't at ringside, so she can't interfere. It's just going to be just me & The Miz for the very last time with the championship on the line... with no distractions... no interference... just pure action!

    I've lost to The Miz so many times. He has took short-cuts and I have built up so much anger from it... and I'm looking to take all my frustrations out on him! It's not about me wanting to make up for these losses... I NEED to make up for all these losses. The people don't want The Miz as Intercontinental Champion because he's not a real fighting champion. Sure, Miz has defeated many superstars like he has stated- but he has ducked more challenges than he's actually fought. And the fans don't want to see him as champion because they want someone who will fight EVERY single week.

    I've been chasing the Intercontinental Championship ever since I made my return from injury, and I know how important that title is. It has been held by legends.. and it's a known fact that this title is the opportunity to lead to better things. Look at guys like The Rock, Steve Austin & Triple H. They are three legends in the WWE.. and before they won became World Champions- they were Intercontinental Champions at some point in their career. I want to head towards that legendary path- and I KNOW that I can do it.


    Cesaro looks very calm and composed compared to The Miz who was more angry earlier- as Rome continues.

    MIKE ROME:
    That's fair enough Cesaro. Now last week on Monday Night Raw- you defeated Dolph Ziggler after an excellent back and forth match between the both of you. Following that match, The Miz attacked you brutally- and you landed on your shoulder multiple times in the ring, and on the steel steps. Does this affect your chances of winning at Summerslam?

    CESARO:
    Definitely not Mike... I have wrestled in pain before, and I never let it affect my chances. But I don't care how my shoulder is.. because I'm fighting at Summerslam no matter what. This is the big opportunity that I NEEDED.. and The Miz is going to get the biggest fight of his career so he can cheap-shot all he wants... but we all know that he's too much of a coward to fight me face to face...

    The Miz attacked me because he wanted to make a statement... and he wanted to ruin my chances at winning this Sunday. He wanted to make sure that I didn't even make it to Summerslam. Well I say fool me once... shame on you. Fool me TWICE... shame on me. The only way that The Miz is going to fool me twice is if he beats me at Summerslam- but it's NOT happening.

    I'm grabbing that brass ring whether Miz likes it or not... and in the words of Mr. McMahon.. he doesn't have no chance in hell against me! The Miz might claim to be an A-Lister- but this Sunday, he's going to have to bring his A game into that ring. He doesn't have his wife to give him any help if he needs it... and he's going to have to fight me like a true man.


    Cesaro speaks with more fire in his tone.

    CESARO: I am NOT going to Brooklyn to lose.. I'm going to New York to fight my heart out- because everything is on the line. My whole reputation depends on this ONE match. The Miz is going outnumbered because I have the entire Barclays Center with me... but he doesn't have anyone. I have The Cesaro Section with me... and there will be 16,000 people rooting for me... clamoring for me to win- and I'm telling you guys right now.. I am going to DETHRONE The Miz to accomplish what I have been trying to do for the past year... and I WILL take the Intercontinental Championship home with me!

    Cesaro looks as focused as ever as Rome thanks him for his time- and we head to a break.

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The cameras cut to the announcers table as Ranallo talks about how we just heard from Cesaro before the break. Cole says that Cesaro is very focused right now- as is The Miz, and the two men know what's at stake. Graves moves on, and says that it's time for our next match!

    HELLFIRE

    The lights go out as the fans begin to boo, as they know who's coming... and we see The Celtic Warrior in Sheamus as he comes out to the stage. Sheamus makes his way to the ring as Cole talks about how Sheamus picked up a win over Goldust last week, and he looks set to win another match.

    MAKIN' MOVES

    The music of Titus O'Neil hits as Corpus Christi responds with light cheers. O'Neil comes out- as Ranallo states that O'Neil is the CEO of Titus WORLDWIIIIIIDE! O'Neil makes his way to the ring, as Cole says O'Neil hasn't had the best of luck recruiting members for his brand. O'Neil enters the ring, but he asks for a mic to be given to him. O'Neil eventually receives a mic, as Cole questions what O'Neil is about to say? Graves says that it's no surprise- as Sheamus looks annoyed at O'Neil.

    TITUS O'NEIL:
    It's lively here in Corpus Christi tonight!

    The fans erupt with cheers- whilst O'Neil turns to Sheamus.

    TITUS O'NEIL:
    Now Sheamus... I know who you are. Everybody in this arena knows who you are.. you're The Celtic Warrior! A FOUR time WWE World Heavyweight Champion! There ain't no denying that you've done it all man!

    And I got a business proposition FOR YOU!!

    O'Neil laughs as Sheamus doesn't look impressed.

    TITUS O'NEIL:
    Maybe you could be the luck that Titus WORLDWIIIIIIIIIIDE has needed? The four leaf clover! Sheamus... what do you say fella?! Do you...

    BUT SHEAMUS BLASTS O'NEIL WITH A BROGUE KICK!! Sheamus doesn't even let O'Neil finish his words as O'Neil lays on the canvas. The referee gets involved, as Sheamus shouts at him to ring the bell. The referee attends to O'Neil- but O'Neil wants to fight! The referee can be heard asking 'Are you sure?!' and O'Neil nods in approval as The Real Deal eventually gets up- and the bell rings!

    Match 5. Sheamus vs. Titus O'Neil

    Finish: When the match started- Sheamus knocked O'Neil down again with a Clothesline, before going for the cover- as Titus kicked out at 2! This match has been very brutal, as both men have really beaten each other up. Both brawler styles has clashed, and the fans have rooted for Titus O'Neil this entire match.

    Back to the action, the fans chant 'You Look Stupid!' at Sheamus as Sheamus is in control of O'Neil in the center of the ring. Sheamus takes a few step backs, and charges at O'Neil with a Running Knee Lift as he connects! O'Neil goes down as Sheamus picks him up again... and Sheamus is set to lift him up for a White Noise... but O'Neil uses all his strength to escape Sheamus's grasp!

    Eventually, O'Neil fights back with vicious shots to the head of Sheamus. The two men exchange blows until O'Neil BLASTS Sheamus in the face with a Big Boot. Sheamus stumbles back, but O'Neil grabs him to set him up for a Clash of the Titus... but Sheamus fights out of it- and he grabs O'Neil... IRISH CURSE TO O'NEIL!! Sheamus gets back up, as he screams at O'Neil to get up. O'Neil uses the ropes to get back up on his feet... and he turns around... BROGUE KICK FROM SHEAMUS!! Sheamus goes for the cover... and The Celtic Warrior picks up the win!


    Spoiler:

    WINNER: SHEAMUS


    After the match, Sheamus celebrates in the ring following his impressive victory over Titus O'Neil tonight. Ranallo talks about how Sheamus looks very, very strong- but O'Neil put up one hell of a fight here tonight. Cole agrees- and O'Neil also looks strong in defeat. Graves says that Titus did indeed up a good fight, but it just wasn't enough to beat The Celtic Warrior!

    We go backstage again, as we see Summer Rae & Alexa Bliss backstage- with boos from the crowd as Rae goes to speak.

    SUMMER RAE:
    Me & Alexa Bliss are the most dangerous women in this division... and even though myself & Alexa Bliss are a team.. we both know full well that at Summerslam? It's every women for themselves. I will prove to the world exactly why I shouldn't have been forgotten about! The entire WWE Universe- and all the women will regret sleeping on The First Lady of WWE!

    Alexa speaks.

    ALEXA BLISS: Summer's right... we will make sure that at least one of us walks out as the inaugural champion. You see.. everybody seems to think that I am the dark horse in this match.. well we'll just have to see about that this Sunday because I'm going into that match to win. And there isn't anybody that will stop me or my best friend from taking our spot at the top...


    BOTH:
    Because we are PRESTIGE!

    Prestige look set for Summerslam as we head to the announcers table again.

    Cole states that Summer & Alexa remain friends- but they know they're going to have to put friendship aside at Summerslam. Graves says that Prestige is a very interesting name for this tag team- and he wonders how they will fare in Brooklyn. Ranallo says that after the commercial break- we have a 6 Women Tag Team match as Prestige team up with Eva Marie to take on Alicia Fox, Nikki Bella & Sasha Banks!

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    We're back from another break as it's time for our final match of the night!

    SO COOL

    The music of Summer Rae blasts on the PA system as the fans respond with light boos for The First Lady of WWE!

    SPITEFUL

    Alexa Bliss' music hits- with more fans booing for The Goddess! Bliss joins her partner on the stage, as Prestige make their way to the ring! Cole says that individually- these two are very talented, and together? They will pose a big threat to this Womens division.

    TIME TO RISE

    The music of All Red Everything hits as the fans EXPLODE with boos. The lights in the arena go red as a a voice over begins to play.

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

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

    EVA MARIE!

    Eva Marie comes out to the stage as the fans continue to boo. She poses for a while- before joining Prestige in the ring. Graves points out that this is Eva Marie's first match since the brand extension on Raw. Ranallo says that the pressure is clearly on.

    PARTY

    Alicia Fox's music hits as Foxy comes out to a light pop from the fans. Ranallo points out how Alicia Fox claimed that she is a veteran earlier tonight, in a statement that is very true as she has been in the WWE for 9 years. Cole agrees.

    YOU CAN LOOK BUT YOU CAN'T TOUCH

    Nikki Bella's music blasts on the sound speakers as Bella comes out to a pop from Corpus Christi. Bella is wearing a Fearless t-shirt along with a snapback. Bella joins Fox on the stage- and the two women hug. Graves reminds us how the two women used to team up together- as part of Team Bella.

    SKY'S THE LIMIT

    And a huge pop, the biggest one for all the women as Sasha Banks' music hits! And The Boss comes out, looking fly as usual with her 'Boss' gear on. Banks joins Bella & Foxy on the stage as the trio make their way to the ring for action.

    Main Event: Eva Marie & Prestige vs. Alicia Fox, Nikki Bella & Sasha Banks

    Finish:
    This main event has been great as all women have brought something to the table, apart from Eva Marie who has left Prestige to do all the dirty work in the match. On the other hand, the trio of faces have gotten on well- with the match getting more intense.

    Alicia Fox & Alexa Bliss are the legal women. Foxy goes for a kick to the mid-section of Bliss, as Bliss begins to bend over. Foxy runs from one side to another to strike with a Watch Yo' Face... but Foxy doesn't connect with the Scissors Kick as Bliss moves out of the way. Foxy lands on the canvas, and Bliss responds with a vicious kick to the face of Foxy!

    Bliss begins to scream at the fans, as she walks over to the turnbuckle. She gets up on the turnbuckle, as Cole says that this could be dangerous. Bliss launches with a Rounding Moonsault which she calls the Twisted Bliss... but Foxy quickly gets up and she manages to grab hold of a flying Bliss... NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX TO ALEXA BLISS!! The fans explode with cheers as Foxy immediately goes for the cover. One! Two! BUT BLISS GRABS THE ROPES!

    Foxy can't believe it as she thought she won! But she wastes no time, as she begins to crawl over to her team-mates! Bliss does the same... Sasha Banks & Nikki Bella are calling to be tagged in.. and the fans begin to chant 'We Want Sasha!' as Foxy crawls over to Banks... and SASHA BANKS IS TAGGED IN! The fans go nuts as Banks enters the ring. But on the other hand, Bliss looks set to tag in Summer... but instead- she tags in Eva Marie!

    Eva Marie has no choice but to the enter the ring, as Graves says that Eva is screwed! Ranallo states that she has done nothing in this match- but it's time to put her abilities to the test against Sasha. Banks stares Eva out- and she charges at Eva with a Roundhouse Kick, but Eva dodges it. This leads to Banks running over to Prestige- and knocking them off the apron!

    Banks turns around, and Eva immediately begins to erupt with shots to the body of The Boss... before hitting Banks with a Shoulder Block! This leads to Eva taunting the fans by doing an evasive cartwheel, as fans begin to boo. Eva picks Banks up.. and she looks to go for her finisher. She puts her feet on the turnbuckles for a Shiranui (Sliced Red #2)... and she goes for it as the audience gasps...



    AND SHE HITS IT!!! The fans are going nuts with boos as Eva goes for the cover. One! Two! BUT SASHA KICKS OUT!! Eva can't believe it as Graves says that's the best thing he's seen from Eva all year, but she could have done more damage with that. Eva gets up, and she grabs Sasha by the hair. She goes to attempt her finisher for the second time...

    But Sasha fights back! The two women begin to trade shots- before Eva goes to a kick to the mid-section of Sasha... but Sasha grabs hold of Eva's feet... before throwing it and NAILING Eva with a Roundhouse Kick! Eva doesn't go down.. but Sasha has the opportunity for a rebound as she charges at Eva- who has her back to Sasha...



    And Sasha nails a Double Knee Backbreaker before transitioning into the Bank Statement! The fans begin to cheer as Eva is in the center of the ring!! Eva screams in pain, and she is doing her absolute hardest to crawl over the ropes. She crawls.. and she crawls... but Sasha tightens the pressure as Eva has no way out.. and Eva has no choice but to TAP!!

    Spoiler:

    WINNERS: ALICIA FOX, NIKKI BELLA & SASHA BANKS


    After the match, Sasha Banks celebrates getting the win for her team as the fans cheer. Nikki Bella applauds Banks from the apron- as Banks looks towards Bella. She smiles at Bella, but the tension is visible between them as they will be opponents this Sunday. Bella enters the ring- as the referee raises hers and Banks' hand...

    PRESTIGE ATTACK FROM BEHIND! Summer Rae & Alexa Bliss erupt with a beatdown on Sasha Banks & Nikki Bella, clearly not taking the loss very well. Ranallo says that Prestige are out of control. Prestige continue to attack, and Bliss grabs Banks, and knocks her over the top rope as Banks goes flying! Bella notices this- despite brawling with Summer Rae, but Bella runs over to Bliss- and grabs her before putting her in position for a finisher... RACK ATTACK 2.0 TO BLISS! Bliss slides out of the ring... but Nikki Bella is grabbed from behind by Summer Rae! Rae spins Bella around...

    SUMMER CRUSH TO NIKKI BELLA! The fans boo as Rae nails Bella with her finishing move. Rae begins to shout at the fans, but little does she know that Alicia Fox has entered the ring! And Foxy grabs Rae before kicking her in the gut- and she runs from one side to another... WATCH YO' FACE TO SUMMER RAE! The fans begin to chant 'This is Awesome!' as Ranallo states that we have a frenzy of finishing moves here tonight- with each women looking to stand tall, and show who's the best! Alicia motions that she's winning the title at Summerslam...

    But the cameras cut to the steel steps, as we see Eva Marie- who has purposely hidden, and hasn't been involved in the brawl. She makes her move, and she enters the ring... almost stalking Foxy as Foxy doesn't notice... and she grabs Foxy by the hair before running over to the turnbuckles... SLICED RED #2 TO ALICIA FOX!!

    Eva executes the move for a second time with more damage, as she begins to laugh. All Red Everything begins to pose for the fans as they respond with LOUD boos... and that's until Sasha Banks enters the ring!! The fans cheer loudly as The Boss grabs Eva Marie- and she twists her around... BANKRUPT TO EVA MARIE!! And that's all she wrote!


    Sasha Banks stands tall in the ring- as the fans chant 'SASHA' repeatedly as she is fired up tonight! Ranallo says that this has been a fantastic main event, and there is no denying that Banks is the favorite to win at Summerslam! Cole agrees with Ranallo- as Graves says you can't count out the other women in this match, and he sees Summer Rae someone who might pull out a win in Brooklyn.

    The cameras immediately cut backstage again, as we The Usos who don't look too happy at all. The two men are angry at themselves... and at each other.

    JEY USO: Yo Uce- what the hell is goin' on between us, huh?! This ain't right man... this ain't cool at all! We used to be somethin' in this Tag Team division.. we used to run this division! And now? As much as I hate to say this... we're getting too used to losin' Uce!

    Jimmy Uso looks on, with a bitter look on his face.

    JIMMY USO:
    You're right man- somethin' needs to be done about this, you feel me?! We need to find that killer instinct that we need... because we ain't letting those other tag teams take OUR shots. OUR opportunities!

    Jey looks on at Jimmy in agreement... and with a cold look in his eyes.

    JEY USO:
    When Summerslam is over and done with... we gon' open up The Uso Penitentiary so we can lay WASTE to all these tag teams!! All we gotta to do is bide our time brother... and then we STRIKE!

    The Usos look set to plan something... as the two brothers look at each other deviously.

    Ranallo questions what The Usos have in their minds?! Graves moves on, and he says that we are heading to our last commercial of the night, but make sure you stay tuned- because to close the show... we are having an edition of Ambrose Asylum as Roman Reigns will be the guest! The two Shield brothers have a final confrontation before their marquee Summerslam match for the WWE Championship... this can't be missed!

    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The TitanTron shows another video package as we see various shots of Raw's newest talent Austin Aries posing and showing off wearing sunglasses and a suit.

    AUSTIN ARIES: I came to NXT to prove myself.

    The clip shows Austin Aries' debut in NXT, as we see William Regal introducing Aries to the fans in NXT. A picture of Aries with Triple H is also shown.

    AUSTIN ARIES: But the fact of the matter is? I never needed to prove myself.

    We see footage of Austin Aries brutally attacking No Way Jose on NXT, before the clip cuts to Aries winning championships in various promotions.

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

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

    AUSTIN ARIES:
    The pool of talent on Monday Night Raw is simply good.

    The clip shows John Cena, Cesaro, Sami Zayn, Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns.

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

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

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

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

    AUSTIN ARIES:
    And I'm coming.



    A graphic of Austin Aries vs. Sami Zayn on a Summerslam card appears, before the date of the PPV event is shown.

    21/8/16

    The cameras cut back to The Honda Center as the fans seem to be very excited for the Aries/Zayn match at Summerslam. Graves says that it's time for The Ambrose Asylum- before Cole cuts in, and he has just received word from Stephanie McMahon that The Ambrose Asylum segment has a stipulation attached to it. If either Reigns or Ambrose attack each other- they won't be in the main event of Summerslam. Ranallo says that is fair enough considering how the Orton/Lesnar contract signing ended.

    The camera cuts to the ring, as we see a whiteboard in the ring- with an Ambrose Asylum sign on it.

    RETALIATION

    Corpus Christi ERUPTS with loud cheers for the WWE Champion! Dean Ambrose comes out to the stage, wearing a black leather jacket with blue jeans as he makes his way to the ring. Ranallo says that The Lunatic is here- as Ambrose stands in the centre of the ring. The music stops, and fans begin an 'Ambrose!' chant as Ambrose speaks.

    DEAN AMBROSE: Corpus Christi... WELCOME TO THE AMBROSE ASYLUM!!

    A HUGE pop as Ambrose looks fired up, as well as the fans.

    DEAN AMBROSE: And my guest for tonight... is none other than my BROTHER who I will be going one on one with at Summerslam! He is The Big Dog... ROMAN REIGNS!!

    THE TRUTH REIGNS

    The fans go NUTS with a mixed reaction- with mostly boos as Roman Reigns comes out to the stage! Reigns doesn't look happy at all, as The Big Dog makes his way to the ring. He enters the ring quick, wasting no time- and Ambrose is happy to see him.

    DEAN AMBROSE:
    The Big Dog is here! Ladies and gentleman, let's give it up for ROMAN REIGNS!!

    A HUGE reaction of boos from the crowd, as they simply don't like Reigns tonight. Ambrose goes to speak again but Reigns snatches the mic out of Ambrose's hand! Ambrose gets pissed off as Reigns speaks.

    ROMAN REIGNS:
    It's nice to see that you're feeling excited tonight Ambrose.. but I'mma cut to the chase. You know.. last week- we faced The Ascension... and I apologized to you like a MAN for the Spear I hit you with because it wasn't intentional...

    So what the HELL were you thinking by hitting me with Dirty Deeds last week?

    Reigns gets in Ambrose's face, as Ambrose walks over to the other side to get another mic. He walks back to Reigns and the champion doesn't look impressed at all. Ambrose goes to speak- but Reigns cuts in.

    ROMAN REIGNS: It doesn't matter what people think of me- but everybody in this building knows that it was an accident! This match against The Ascension meant a lot to me just as much as it did to you... so what makes you think that I would've tried to cost us the match?

    Ambrose speaks as he begins to laugh.

    DEAN AMBROSE: To answer your question... I KNOW you wouldn't. I KNOW full well that the Spear was an accident Roman.. 'cause well I may be a lunatic- but I'm NOT stupid! I hit you with a Dirty Deeds to just even things up a little... one-up you a little! We lost the match anyway... but it's just a bit of friendly competition. So WHY are you getting so angry for? Do you need someone to wipe your tears away... or take your nappy off for you?

    The fans laugh as Reigns continues to get pissed off. Reigns speaks on the mic as Ambrose shows no fear.

    ROMAN REIGNS:
    Oh, y'all thought that was funny huh? Well Dean... this ain't a joke to me! It's not a joke to you either! Because at Summerslam- we're competing for the biggest prize in the WWE. There's no friendly competition about it Dean...

    Reigns looks very serious.



    ROMAN REIGNS: This is as serious as it gets. There ain't no time for any fun and jokes. But when you hit me with Dirty Deeds? You best believe that it's going to get even more serious at Summerslam because you crossed the line! And I'm warning you Dean.. I'm gonna make you pay by winning the WWE Championship because I'm THE BIG DOG...

    And you can BELIEVE that!

    Reigns speaks with fire, but Ambrose just isn't fazed at all. As a matter of fact... Ambrose pauses before he speaks.

    DEAN AMBROSE:
    DON'T! Don't you dare say that.. don't EVER use The Shield's phrases against ME. Because we all thought of that Roman.. not just you! It was me... you and even Rollins! But it doesn't surprise me Roman... not one bit at all! You always wanna make things all about yourself. And as much as I hate Seth Rollins.. and I will never forgive him for what he did to us. But the difference between you & Seth Rollins is one thing...

    At least Seth Rollins had the decency to move on from The Shield unlike you.


    It's getting very tense tonight as Reigns looks on, in confusion.

    DEAN AMBROSE:
    Even I MOVED on from The Shield, Roman! We're all doing our OWN things right now.. so tell me something... why are you still living in the past for? Why can't you just MOVE ON?! Because you might see yourself as The Big Dog.. but I see you as nothing but a cheap knock-off version of The Shield!

    'Ooooooohhhhhhhh' shouts the fans as Reigns looks at Ambrose, with pure anger in his eyes. Ranallo reminds us that neither men can touch each other.

    DEAN AMBROSE: Everytime you come out- you disgrace everything The Shield stood for. But you just can't help yourself, could you? With the horrible remix of The Shield's music... and are you seriously telling me that you couldn't even be bothered to get your own ring gear? That right there... is an example of why the people DON'T like you. And that's the reason why when MY music hits.. the fans go wild because they know *bleep*'s about to go down!

    But when YOUR music hits... the WWE Universe boos because they hate your guts.


    Reigns continues to get angry, as things continue to get more tense. The fans are eating it up as they respond with cheers.

    DEAN AMBROSE: And the worst thing about it- is that you DO see it... but you can't be bothered to face it. That's why you tell everybody that you're not a good guy, you're not a bad guy... you're The Guy! And as much as you want to believe it... these people aren't having it! When you won your first WWE Championship? The fans didn't like it. When you won the Royal Rumble- the fans didn't like that either.

    Hell, they hated it so much- that you even got your own cousin THE ROCK boo'd!

    The fans cheer as Ambrose continues, but Reigns quickly cuts in.

    ROMAN REIGNS:
    You better shut your mouth because you are seriously PISSING me off.

    Loud boos, but there are still some cheers for Reigns as Reigns looks into Ambrose's eyes.

    ROMAN REIGNS: First of all... don't EVER mention my family again!

    Reigns continues.

    ROMAN REIGNS: Secondly.. you might have a problem with me.. but I know exactly what all this is about... you're simply jealous of me Ambrose! You're still upset about the fact that I was drafted #1 and not you.

    Reigns gets in Ambrose's face as neither men is backing down with the exchange of words.

    ROMAN REIGNS:
    You say that I haven't moved on from The Shield and yet I'm standing here as a three time WWE Champion- when you're only on your first ever reign... and that really grinds your gears, doesn't it? You trying to say that I haven't evolved is a lie because I've accomplished more than you ever have in the WWE.

    Ambrose has clearly just pissed Roman Reigns off- as the fans respond with mixed reaction.

    ROMAN REIGNS:
    I'm gonna on to become a FOUR time WWE Champion and prove that I AM the face of Monday Night Raw. I'm gonna be the man that waves the flag on the flagship show... and if that means I have to destroy you at Summerslam...

    Reigns looks Ambrose cold in the eye...

    ROMAN REIGNS:
    Then you better believe that I'm gonna do it.

    The fans boo as they disagree. Ambrose simply laughs in Reigns' face as Ambrose responds.

    DEAN AMBROSE: Are you kidding me? Let's rephrase that a little, shall we Roman?! Face of Monday Night Raw?

    More like the HANDPICKED face of Raw!


    Ambrose says that line with excitement as the fans seem to agree.

    DEAN AMBROSE: You are the man that has been handpicked to be not just the face of Raw.. but the WWE itself! The draft picks don't faze me anymore Roman.. because I see through it all. I see that you are the GUY that the system wants at the top. But as for me Roman... They NEVER wanted me at the top! I'm the one man that they dreaded to become the WWE Champion because I'm just too damn crazy for them!! You are the man with the good looks to be on the face of EVERY single billboard and poster to represent WWE..

    But let's not forget how you seem to have screwed yourself over multiple times with your FAILED wellness policy tests. I don't get how you STILL competed at Battleground in The Shield Triple Threat Match? But I can guarantee you that if it was me in your position.. I would have been taken off the card immediately.

    The fans continue to agree with Ambrose- as they feel he is talking the truth. Reigns just stands and listen, as he nods in disapproval.

    DEAN AMBROSE: The system still believes in you Roman. They are going to do whatever it takes to make you their GUY... but I don't give a crap about what they want. I'm putting a stop to all this because I'M THE GUY AROUND HERE!! And it doesn't matter what they think of me.. as long as the WWE Universe cheers me... everybody knows that I'M THE FACE of Monday Nights that the system just can't handle!!

    Ambrose continues to speak with fire as Reigns has a cold look on his face.

    DEAN AMBROSE:
    So you can say that this is your yard all you want... but I'm not having any of it as long as I am the champion! We were once brothers in arms Roman... but at Summerslam? We're gonna be brothers at WAR. We're walking into that match as family Roman... but I can guarantee you that the moment we step into that ring? It's showtime... The Kingpin of the WWE will retain the WWE Championship by destroying his brother- and there ain't a damn thing you can do about it you son of a bitch!

    Ambrose drops the mic as The Honda Center goes absolutely nuts! But as Ambrose gets fired up, Reigns has also had enough. Reigns drops the mic- and he immediately begins to bump heads with Dean Ambrose as the two men begin to stare off. The fans then begin to get riled up for the staredown as Ambrose & Reigns look at each other in the eyes closely. Ranallo says that he's surprised they haven't ripped each other apart already- but Graves says that the rivalry has turned personal, but there is still that respect! The show goes off with Ambrose & Reigns staring each other down.

    Been quite awhile since I had the time to read some shows- but as always, you guys still got it. Great shows- only read the last 4 shows. And you have an Ambrose that I like. In the real WWE he bores me now.

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

    Episode Two - 8/8/16 - Corpus Christi, Texas



    Immediately following Raw on the WWE Network- the cameras cut to the setting of Raw Talk, and we head over to Charly Caruso.

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    Welcome WWE Universe to the second edition of Raw Talk as we are live on the WWE Network! Now, I am joined by none other the Hall of Famer- he is Jerry 'The King' Lawler, how are you King?!



    JERRY LAWLER: I'm doing great Charly- and it feels good to be on Raw Talk as tonight's Raw was the go-home show before the hottest party of the Summer!

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    I agree, and tonight was such a big show- don't you think King? I mean, we had some great matches- and the WWE Universe had the chance to go deep into the mind's of all the superstars who are in key matches at Summerslam.

    JERRY LAWLER:
    To answer your question- it was a fantastic show! We had the contract signing between Randy Orton & Brock Lesnar which is big enough, but with the addition of Paul Heyman- it added that extra element to the confrontation, but it's a shame we still didn't hear Brock Lesnar speak!

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    Well, in Paul Heyman's words- I agree when he says that Lesnar lets his actions do the talking... and the chaos after that showdown was unreal! Lesnar took out all these security guards that were much bigger than him, before Orton took advantage... as a true Viper would.

    JERRY LAWLER: With Randy Orton... I know exactly what he's like! I've had the pleasure of being in the ring with him, whether it's tagging with him or facing him. I can assure you that Orton hits hard- and having him clash with The Beast himself- it's going to make for great showing at Summerslam, I can't wait!

    CHARLY CARUSO: Neither can I! Another huge showdown we witnessed was The Ambrose Asylum- and oh my god, it has had the entire social media buzzing. The people were going insane over the comments that Ambrose & Reigns made towards each other!

    JERRY LAWLER: And that's how a rivalry between two CLOSE brothers gets personal. They're fighting for the WWE Championship at Summerslam- and that's how it has to be! You have the feel the energy that these men are going to bring to fight for the biggest prize in the WWE, it's incredible!

    CHARLY CARUSO: So moving on, I want to introduce our guest on Raw Talk tonight- and he is none other than the CEO of Titus WORLDWIIIIIIIIIIIDE- TITUS O'NEIL!



    Titus O'Neil enters the shot, as Caruso & Lawler look very pleased to see The Real Deal! O'Neil is dressed in a sharp suit as he still looks hurt from his match with Sheamus earlier on tonight and he takes a seat.

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    Titus, I'd like to welcome you to Raw Talk!

    TITUS O'NEIL: Thank you Charly, and it's great to see you here as well King- it's a pleasure to be here with y'all!

    CHARLY CARUSO: Now earlier tonight, you went face to face with 'The Celtic Warrior' Sheamus- and you took him to his absolute limit! What was going through your mind after the match?

    TITUS O'NEIL: You know... it was a tough man! There ain't no denying it- Sheamus is a brutal competitor and I really did give it my all! I'm just a little bit disappointed because I gave Sheamus a real big fight but I didn't win man! And last week- I did the exact same thing to John Cena. Cena tried to ridicule Titus WORLDWIIIIIIIDE but I gave him a big fight, and we showed each other respect after the match. But I still lost, and that's something I know I need to work on- getting the wins.

    JERRY LAWLER: You might have lost those two nights.. but you've won me over Titus. You put up a great fight against those two men, and sure- you did lose, but you also stuck up for your BRAND- Titus Worldwide, and you proved you should be taken seriously.

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    I wouldn't put it any other way- and I absolutely LOVE Titus Worldwide! I think that the idea of this brand is fresh and exciting.. but so far- you've approached John Cena to join your brand, but Cena refused. I assume you were about to do the same to Sheamus, before he attacked you?

    TITUS O'NEIL:
    I knew I was gonna be asked that haha! I'm not gonna lie- I did have the proposition for Sheamus in mind because I want to make my brand a worldwide movement. Not JUST the US. I wanna go global- and Sheamus would've made a good addition! But as soon as he nailed me with that Brogue Kick... well, I didn't like that- and I hope the message got across during the match that I wasn't going to be a pushover.

    JERRY LAWLER:
    I too think Sheamus would've made a great choice.

    TITUS O'NEIL: But you know... it kinda sucks because I've stuck up for my brand- but at the same time.. sometimes I feel like just forgetting it because it's clearly not going nowhere. I mean, I've approached Cena & Sheamus and they just weren't interested.. so I feel like I'm wasting my time with it. I think I got the concept of it across very well, and it seems to have gotten very popular- but if there's no superstars that want to join, it's like what's the point?

    JERRY LAWLER:
    Well, in my opinion- I'll give you some honest advice. I think you're thinking too big when it comes to the superstars Titus. You're going for all these big names, but they're already successful. John Cena is a 15 time world champion. Sheamus has also won multiple world titles. They've both done well for themselves already, and they don't need anybody. You need to search for superstars that you feel actually NEED that extra boost.. I'd suggest going for the lesser known superstars.

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    Ooooohhhh, I think that's a great shout King! Titus, maybe Titus Worldwide needs some fresh blood in it? The future, so to speak. You could even go over to NXT- and scout the talent over there because they're killing it over there. There are superb talent all around the world that you could even get signed to the WWE... it's a big world out there Titus!

    Titus smiles, almost as if he's had a lightbulb moment.

    TITUS O'NEIL: All I'm going to say is this... that's the BEST bit of advice I've heard all year! You're both absolutely correct. I'm done focusing on the present- and now it's time to look to the future baby! I appreciate y'all for having me on here, but I need to go- I've got business to attend to man, like you said Charly- it's a big world out there!

    Caruso & Lawler laugh as Titus gets up- and leaves the set.

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    Thank you for being here Titus! Well that was pretty cool, wasn't it King? Looks like Titus Worldwide is still going be active! Looks like you sparked a fuel in Titus!

    JERRY LAWLER: I'm glad it is Charly- O'Neil shouldn't give up and lose faith in himself, and I'm glad to see he's
    got that extra motivation. I love the concept of Titus Worldwide- and it could really help elevate some young stars.

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    Now, I have just received word from the General Manager of Raw Daniel Bryan as he has just stated that there will be a 12 Man Tag Team Match on the Summerslam Kick-Off show! It will be Dolph Ziggler teaming up with Titus O'Neil, Golden Truth & The Usos to take on the team of Ryback, Sheamus, Breezango & THE ASCENSION!

    JERRY LAWLER:
    Well the kick-off show is clearly not to be missed! There were a lot of superstars that didn't make it to the Summerslam card, and Daniel Bryan is doing his best of trying get these guys on the show! This match sounds crazy, and the superstars that are involved are going to make the most of this opportunity.

    CHARLY CARUSO: And that brings us to Summerslam- as we are just 6 nights away from the hottest party of the Summer! We've got a stacked card from the Raw side of things, and we bring that to you right now!

    Who's With Me by Flo Rida starts to play- as that is one of the official Summerslam theme tracks. Graphics of the Raw side of the PPV are shown...

    Pre-Show: 12 Man Tag Team Match
    Breezango, The Ascension, Ryback & Sheamus vs. Golden Truth, Titus O'Neil, Dolph Ziggler & The Usos

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    So as we stated earlier, we have the 12 Man Tag Team Match on the kick-off show, and I think that this will be a great match as we have names like Sheamus, The Usos & Dolph Ziggler! I think the team of Breezango, The Ascension, Ryback & Sheamus will be more dominant and get the win.

    JERRY LAWLER: Both teams are stacked with talent that are looking to prove themselves and show WHY they belong on Raw. I've gotta feeling that the team of Golden Truth, O'Neil, Ziggler & The Usos will win- and either Ziggler or The Usos will have a big part to play in the win.

    Austin Aries vs. Sami Zayn

    CHARLY CARUSO:
    We have The Greatest Man That Ever Lived in Austin Aries making his debut from NXT to Monday nights at the big summer event- and he will go one on one with Sami Zayn! I've got a feeling that Zayn & Aries are going to tear the house down, and I think Sami Zayn will pick up the victory.

    JERRY LAWLER:
    Honestly.. this match could go either way- and Brookyln are going to love it, that's for sure! But my pick has to be Austin Aries. He's making his debut on such a big stage, and he HAS to deliver- and I feel he will.

    6-Pack Elimination Challenge Match for the vacant Raw Womens Championship
    Alexa Bliss vs. Alicia Fox vs. Eva Marie vs. Nikki Bella vs. Sasha Banks vs. Summer Rae


    CHARLY CARUSO: Another match that I'm excited for- as the women of Monday nights get a huge opportunity! With the addition of the elimination stip, I think anything could happen! If there's anybody that that will get it done at Brooklyn, it's gotta be Sasha Banks.

    JERRY LAWLER:
    I have to agree with you Charly, there isn't a women on this division with as much momentum as The Boss does, maybe with the exception of Nikki Bella- but I think this Sunday, Sasha Banks will finally achieve her dreams to be Raw Womens Champion.

    Last Chance Match for the Intercontinental Championship
    Cesaro vs. The Miz (c)


    CHARLY CARUSO: Oh wow, the stakes are absolutely higher than ever. Everything is going to be put to the line. And as much as I love The Swiss Cyborg.. but after what I heard The Miz had to say face to face with me about this match.. I feel as if Miz is going to retain. What about you King?

    JERRY LAWLER:
    This is another match where anything can happen, and anybody could win. This will be the last time we see these two men go at it as long as the other is Intercontinental Champion. I think The Miz is going to put on the best match of his career- but he won't be able to handle Cesaro! Swiss Cyborg all the way.

    WWE Tag Team Championship Match
    American Alpha vs. The New Day (c)

    CHARLY CARUSO: A match featuring the present and the future- but who's time really is it! Will The New Day continue their streak with their winning ways, or will American Alpha be the ones to stand in The New Day's way? I think The New Day will win this match.

    JERRY LAWLER: I've gotta go with The New Day as well- I think American Alpha are a great tag team with a big future ahead of them, but The New Day are the present. They are running this tag team division right now, and I think that continues.

    The Franchise vs. The Phenomenal - Interpromotional Match
    John Cena (Raw) vs. AJ Styles (Smackdown)

    CHARLY CARUSO: I can't wait for this match! One of the Interpromotional matches with Smackdown vs. Raw- as we have The Phenomenal vs. The Franchise! I will always stick to Red and back the Red team- so my pick to win this match is The Franchise, John Cena!

    JERRY LAWLER: Both men have so much to prove, but in my eyes- it's AJ Styles who has the MOST to prove. Can he hang in the big leagues with The Franchise? I think he can, and I think he will. My pick is for AJ to go over Cena this Sunday!

    The Beast vs. The Viper - Interpromtional Match - 15 Years In The Making
    Brock Lesnar (Raw) vs. Randy Orton (Smackdown)

    CHARLY CARUSO: Another interpromotional match- and this time, we have The Beast vs. The Viper! This rivalry has been so bitter and personal.. and I feel both men have finally met their matches. But again, I've gotta stick to Team Red- and I truly do think that will The Beast conquer The Viper!

    JERRY LAWLER:
    I think this match is going to be so close... but I don't think I can think of a winner, honestly. The Beast has been unstoppable since he broke the streak, whereas Orton has just came back from injury- but I feel Orton will be in the best shape of his career. I don't know who will win and that makes things even more exciting for me.

    The Big Dog vs. The Kingpin: WWE Championship Match
    Roman Reigns vs. Dean Ambrose (c)


    CHARLY CARUSO: The match that I am MOST excited for- Summerslam's Raw main event in The Big Dog vs. The Kingpin! And as Ambrose said- they were Brothers in Arms but now they're Brothers at War! This match is fulled by personal grudges and respect too... but I think Sunday will be The Big Dog's night!

    JERRY LAWLER: Man, the personal issues these two have been having the last few weeks have been intense. Their exchanges on the mic was even more intense, and I think these two are going to have a real fight at Brookyln. I think Reigns has a great shot of winning.. but I'm going with the The Kingpin to win!

    CHARLY CARUSO: And there you have it... the Raw side of things from the Summerslam card, and that's all we got time for. I want to say- thank you to everybody who has tuned in from the WWE Network, tonight has been a great Raw and I've had a great time with King, thank you to Titus O'Neil who agreed to be the guest tonight, and that's it from us! We are 6 nights away from Summerslam, so make sure you're there guys. Good night everybody!

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



    Smackdown Live, Episode Five (New Era) - 16/08/16 - Frank Erwin Center
    Austin, Texas


    Smackdown is moments away from going live but beforehand a video package plays showcasing the Brock Lesnar and Randy Orton situation on Raw. It highlights the crowd hype around the face-off and excitement for the contract signing as Stephanie Mcmahon and Daniel Bryan host the occasion. It then highlights the arrival of Brock with Heyman and Orton arriving in the ring before the heated promo exchange between Orton and Heyman. The video package then ends with the contract having been signed by both men before all hell breaks loose and the situation turns crazy!


    Brock snaps and attacks the security with suplex's before dropping the biggest of them with an F5 as the crowd pop. The footage then skips with various voice overs of announcers shouting "RKO!" as it then shows Orton landing the RKO out of nowhere on the Beast- Brock Lesnar! It finishes with Orton standing tall on the stage with him shouting "it only takes one!" in reference to the RKO as Brock and Heyman watches on. The footage ends with the crowd going crazy in anticipation before the video package ends and Smackdown is Live!




    Good ole' "JR" Jim Ross welcome's the fans to another episode of Smackdown Live from the Frank Erwin Center
    Austin, Texas! He introduces his broadcast partners- Booker T and "JBL" John Bradshaw Layfield. Jim Ross then announces we are firmly on the road to the hottest party of the summer, SummerSlam! Ross announces that this is the final stop, the go-home show and it's sure to be a good one! The commentary team hype tonight's show and the Battle Royal Main Event before speculating who will be the fifth man to join Apollo Crews, Finn Balor, Neville and Seth Rollins in the World Heavyweight Championship match?! Jim Ross then turns the attention to ringside where the stage is set and the ring is ready for the contract signing of AJ Styles and John Cena for their grudge match at SummerSlam.


    HERE COMES THE MONEY!!


    The Texan crowd pop's for the returning Smackdown Commissioner as he shuffles out from gorilla and around the stage as he beats his chest in appreciation for the support. Shane then walks down the ramp, shaking hands with some of the crowd before grabbing a microphone and entering the ring.


    SHANE MCMAHON: Yo! What's up, Austin?!


    Crowd pop as Shane smiles and continues on speaking.


    SHANE MCMAHON: Thank you Austin for the warm welcome, I appreciate it. Firstly I'd like to address the situation that went down on Monday Night Raw! Wow, that was intense!


    Cheers from the fans for the mention of Raw and the excitement for Orton and Brock at SummerSlam.

    SHANE MCAHON: Now, I'm not one to gloat but I do take pleasure in seeing my sister, the evil witch of the WWE, Stephanie Mcmahon loose control of a situation that she desperately wants to control and mother. Bringing out her security.. Three of the biggest and baddest she described them as and don't get me wrong- I'm sure they're tough dudes! But.. This is the WWE and you're in the ring with a Viper and a Beast.. What could possibly go wrong.. Right? Chaos! Those security members earned their money and Brock Lesnar exploded with suplex's and F5's and it was awesome.. I loved it. You had Stephanie Mcmahon and Daniel Bryan fleeing the ring in a panic knowing they had lost control of the situation! You had Brock Lesnar doing his thing as Heyman watched on proudly! Then... The Viper! 15 YEARS IN THE MAKING AND IT WAS AN RKO THAT SENT SHOCK WAVES AROUND THE RAW LOCKER ROOM! Randy Orton with an RKO OUTTA NOWHERE AND HE DROPPED THE BEAST! Did we get a preview of what's going to happen come SummerSlam? Will Randy Orton slay the Beast or will the Beast come back with a vengeance and take Orton to Suplex City?! Austin, Texas what do we think? Who's going to win.. Brock or Orton?


    The crowd are pumped and there appears to be a 50/50 split with cheers for both Orton and Brock.


    SHANE MCMAHON: Now, we are live and tonight is the go-home show for the blue brand and we are going to do it in style! In tonight's Main Event we will see a Battle Royal to determine the fifth entrant into the World Heavyweight Championship match at SummerSlam! Apollo Crews! Neville! Seth Rollins! And last but certainly not least.. Finn Balor! You four men have earned the right to compete and follow in the footsteps of legends like Ric Flair! Hulk Hogan! Triple H and the Rock! And become the next World Heavyweight Champion! Tonight we find out who will join them! As for the match at the PPv, SummerSlam. It will be a chance for the victorious to take the next step in their careers, to climb the ladder of stardom and to reach that brass ring that the old man cares about so much! And as of now, they're going to need to climb that ladder literally because it's now going to be a World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match!


    Crowd pop and begin chants of "YES!" repeatedly.


    SHANE MCMAHON: I'm glad you all approve and we just took the match to another level. No false finishes, no roll up victories. If you want to become champion, you're going to need to do it the hard way, the right way, by fighting, clawing and scratching your way up to the top of the ladder, standing above all below you and grabbing the World title to become Champion! Good luck. SummerSlam might be a joint production but I want to make sure that the blue brand shines brightest and I know my guys will because we are hungry to succeed and motivated to perform and steal the show! Speaking of stealing the show, that leads me nicely on to two guys that might very well do it and have done so before! I'm talking about two names that have paid their dues, earned their stripe's, multi-time champions and are international stars! It's time for the contract signing for the grudge match between the Franchise! John Cena! And the Phenomenal! AJ Styles! Now I know this is the WWE and I know that the simplest of contract signings only ever end up one way, but there's no security and I'll treat you both like men and together like men, the three of us are going to get this signed and we are going to get this done! So introducing first and making his return to Smackdown Live! He is the fifteenth time World Champion! The Franchise! John Cena!


    THE TIME IS NOW!!


    Cena's theme blares from the Smackdown speakers and it's greeted with a pop and screams from the majority of the crowd before the vocal minority sound the boo's that get's Cena smiling at the top of the stage. John takes a moment to take in the crowd reaction before running down the ramp and sliding underneath the ring ropes before taunting for the crowd and then shaking the hand of Shane Mcmahon and awaiting his opponent.


    SHANE MCMAHON: And his opponent! He is the Phenomenal One! The self proclaimed face that runs the place! He is.. AJ Styles!


    SHOT'EM!!


    Mixed response from the crowd as the sound of the Bullet Club's theme plays and AJ steps out onto the stage. The boo's then go up a notch when Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows walk out and take their place alongside the leader of the club as all three men make their way down the ramp and enter the ring. AJ and John Cena begin to walk to each other and are about to face off when Shane steps in and ask's both men for calm and says that we are going to do this correctly and get it done. John Cena and AJ then receive microphone's from Jojo at ringside before the contract signing is underway!


    JOHN CENA: Firstly Shane, thanks for the welcome back to Smackdown and it's good to be here! Boo'd or cheered, these fans know that I made my career right here on Smackdown and though I am now a member of Monday Night Raw! I will always have love and respect for Smackdown! Now, it's time to get down to business and for the reason that we are stood in this ring right now. AJ Styles vs John Cena! The Phenomenal One vs the Franchise- John Cena! It's a grudge match for the ages and SummerSlam might be the hottest party of the summer but I have no doubt that me and AJ are going to bring the heat and steal the show at SummerSlam! But.. that's where the pleasantries end because once again AJ Styles show's that without his club- He can't do nothing because Shane Mcmahon announced that we were going to do this right.. Man to man.. Yet, you come out here with Gallows and Anderson? Oh what a shock! AJ, if you can't do a contract signing without them, then jack, there's no chance of you beating me at SummerSlam without them! How about you grow a pair AJ and we do this one on one, face to face, man to man. Or does the Phenomenal one not have the stones?!


    The crowd "ohh" at Cena's words as AJ just rolls his eyes and looks away before replying.


    AJ STYLES: CUT THE CRAP CENA!! Stop pandering to the crowd like you always do! No one likes you! You don't think I can do this on my own? I'll do this on my own and I'll beat you this Sunday on my own because I am better on my worst day then you will ever be Cena!


    AJ turns to Anderson & Gallows and ask's them to leave, mouthing he's got this. Gallows & Anderson look surprised and ask if AJ is sure? AJ nods his head before all three throw up the "2-Sweet" before Anderson & Gallows leave. AJ then turns to John Cena and attempts to reply but John Cena speaks over him.


    JOHN CENA: WOW! Austin, Texas, you better rub your eyes and pinch yourself because it actually happened! AJ Styles has finally grown a pair of balls! Congratulations, AJ. Well done! Now, you should cut your soccer mom hair cut if you really want to loose the bitch image, chump.


    The crowd pop at Cena's words as Cena begins to laugh while Shane Mcmahon again stresses the need for calm, knowing that AJ is furious.


    AJ STYLES: Johnny boy, you're full of jokes today ain't you? You wanna' know a joke Cena? I'll tell you a joke. YOU! You're the joke, Cena! Your career is a joke! Your wrestling ability is a joke! Your desire to come out each and every week talking about hustle, loyalty and respect.. You talk about how much this business means to you and yet at every chance you get.. you're flying off hosting some kids awards, taking some B rated movie role or doing a guest appearance for some stupid TV program!


    While I'm here, doing my thing and doing it better then you ever have! The reality is Cena, you've become everything you despised, you've become a Dwayne Johnson wannabe, Cena. Since you like reality so much.. I'll give you some more. Had both of us started our journey's here in the WWE- there would be no John Cena because I'm twice as good as you at everything I do and unlike you, I've never changed Cena. I've been the best since day one. I've had the same hustle, loyalty and respect since day one! There's no movie role, no tv program and no damn kid's award that can take me out of this ring because this ring needs me! This business needs me! As for you Cena, you're done! I'll prove that at SummerSlam when I beat you once again and show the whole world what everyone knows already- I am the face that runs the place! I'm the Phenomenal.. A! J! Styles!


    AJ says every word with venom in his voice as Shane watches on- expecting chaos to erupt. Cena nods his head- almost like he knows AJ is bringing it and says "you want to do this? Okay, lets do this" before raising the microphone to his mouth and replying.


    JOHN CENA: Listen up AJ, there's a reason why those outside opportunities come to me and not you and it's got nothing to do with ability. Your ability is unquestionable, AJ. You're a massive talent but I work harder then everyone else and harder then anyone as ever have! I don't have the ability that you do, that you were born with but I'll work harder then you.. I'll hustle more then you, I've shown loyalty to this company and business and I'm still here! I carry the respect of everyone and I show everyone respect. My morale's don't change AJ but my ambition does and I never stop! I love this business and I'll never quit it unlike you.


    WWE is my team.. who's yours AJ? Who ever bids the highest? Who ever massages your ego best? You talk about being the face that runs the place but the reality is- You've been here a coffee break AJ and I wouldn't be surprised to see the next time the going get's tough- you pack your bags and fly of to Japan with your buddies. So WWE Universe, I wouldn't get used to seeing AJ around here for long. I mean.. I remember an AJ that was the face of another place and what happened there? The going got tough and the AJ got going! That's not me AJ, good or bad, I'm here every time the WWE needs me and right now they need me at SummerSlam where I'm going to slap some respect out of your mouth and humble you! You know what though AJ, your here, I'm here. Shane.. get yourself a Referee shirt and we can do this right here, right now!


    Cena rips off his shirt and throws it out towards the crowd before throwing up his hands and saying let's go to AJ Styles who takes of his jacket and Bullet Club shirt and too throws it out to the crowd as both are about to go face to face as Shane leaps in the middle of them and calls for calm as the crowd are shouting "let them fight!" in excitement.


    AJ STYLES: You wanna' go right now Johnny Boy?! I can do this all day, let's go, right now! Come on!


    Cena jumps up and down with a smile on his face as AJ throws his microphone out of the ring before flipping the table that the contract was placed on and begins to charge over to Cena. Shane though is there again and the crowd boo as Shane get's up in the face of Styles and pushes him back. Shane warns him that this can't happen now and will go down at the PPv but AJ pushes Shane who immediately pushes back and ask's him to watch himself and think about this actions. AJ then shoves Shane down as the crowd pop in surprise and when he does, there's loud boo's as Gallows and Anderson run down the ramp and surround the ring as Cena stops smiling and knows things are about to go down.


    Soon it's a 3 on 1 mugging as the Bullet Club began to attack Cena like a pack of dogs as Jim Ross berates their actions and again says that AJ can't and won't face Cena one on one. The club beat down on Cena who valiantly begins to fight back and tease a comeback but the numbers are too much. AJ then stops to sign the contract before shoving it in Cena's face and telling him it's on! Soon the crowd make some noise again and this time it's cheers as Enzo Amore comes sprinting down the ramp with a steel chair in hand and begins swinging for the fences as the Bullet Club try to flee the ring. Cena and Amore are standing tall as the crowd are cheering for both while the Bullet Club regroup and tease another attack. John Cena then picks up the contract and signs it before holding it up for all to see, the match is on! Shane though is back up and grabs the microphone and says..


    SHANE MCMAHON: ENOUGH! THAT'S ENOUGH!


    Shane O' then announces that the contract is signed by both men and it's official- at SummerSlam it will be AJ Styles vs John Cena in their highly anticipated grudge match! He then concedes that he can see that this situation can't wait till the PPv and that it's boiling over already. He announces that since Anderson, Gallows and Enzo Amore are out here- here's what we are gonna' do. It will be Gallows and Anderson teaming up to face Enzo Amore and John Cena and that match is going to take place next!


    >> COMMERCIAL <<


    The camera returns from the break and Jim Ross welcomes us back to ringside where the first match of the evening is about to take place. The ring has been cleared, a Referee has entered the ring and Club members Anderson & Gallows are on one side of the ring while the team of Enzo & Cena are on the other. Ross reminds us that there is no Big Cass tonight after suffering minor injuries last week from the post-match attack of the Bullet Club. He then announces that AJ Styles has joined us at the commentary table.


    Match One: Bullet Club (Anderson & Gallows) vs John Cena & Enzo Amore.
    Finish: The match started very one sided with Enzo starting the match and the Club using there size and tag team experience to keep control of the outcome. They segregated Enzo from his corner and often beat him down on there own side of the ring- doing everything in their power to constantly stop the hot tag to John Cena. AJ would be on commentary and would play up how good his brothers are, reminding everyone of their New Japan Pro Wrestling achievements. Enzo would finally break free, fighting back Anderson and then sliding through his legs to tag in the Franchise! John Cena! Cena came in like a man possessed from the tag knocking down Anderson and the incoming Gallows with hard shots and clothesline's. Cena would duck a clothesline from the big man- Gallows before lifting him up and bringing him back down to the canvas before leveling him with the five knuckle shuffle as the crowd gave a mixed response. At this point, AJ would be critiquing every move and trying to convince everyone that Cena can't wrestle and will be no match for him come Sunday.


    Anderson would stumble back up before being lifted up by Cena and being brought back down with the Attitude Adjustment! John would then help back up a fatigued Enzo before playing the part of Big Cass and combining with the Air Enzo as Cena launched Amore out of the ring with a cross-body plancha knocking down Luke Gallows on the outside. John Cena then pointed towards AJ and the commentary table and locked in the STF on Anderson and after a few moments Anderson would tap out in the ring- ending the match.


    Spoiler:

    WINNERS: JOHN CENA & ENZO AMORE!!


    Enzo and Cena would celebrate in the ring as they were announced as the winners as the crowd were mixed due to the love/hate relationship with Cena. The noise then turned to cheers as Enzo started shuffling around the ring with excitement while AJ could be heard saying he's had enough and removing his headset on commentary. Styles would then attempt to enter the ring and blindside Cena but Enzo would alert him and Cena would duck a forearm before catching him and lifting him up in position for the AA! Booker would scream that AJ is about to get his Attitude Adjusted but before anything could happen- Karl Anderson would slide back in the ring and would drag AJ by his boot, freeing him and allowing him to escape. We see one last shot of the Bullet Club retreating while Cena shows with his hand that he was this close to getting AJ and that come Sunday he's going to walk out victorious. Cena and Enzo then embrace as the Bullet Club turn away to leave as the camera heads backstage to Charlotte Flair's locker room.


    Charlotte is pacing back and forth with her Women's Championship around her waist in the locker room, frustration etched across her face as Dana Brooke is repeatedly saying sorry and asking for forgiveness as she attempts to stop Charlotte pacing back and forth. Charlotte feels the arm of Dana holding her back and stops before raising her hand to Dana's face, stopping her from speaking anymore.


    CHARLOTTE FLAIR: Stop! YOUR queen and YOUR Women's Champion has heard enough of your excuses and apologies! Dana, don't you know how lucky, how fortunate you are to be allowed to be in my presence? To roam alongside YOUR queen and YOUR Women's Champion and yet you embarrassed me and brought shame to my Queendom last week when you tapped out to Natalya's Sharpshooter last week. Dana, you're lucky that I am forgiving and understandable! You're lucky that I am this nice because you should be exiled for your actions! I'm going to give you another chance, Dana Brooke. The truth is.. YOUR queen likes having you around and somebody needs to carry the bags! Dana, I need you to watch and learn because YOUR queen is going to send a message to Natalya by beating Becky Lynch tonight! Now though.. I want you to clean this Championship for me and get a nice shine while I ready and prepare for my match.. Have you got that, Dana?


    Charlotte holds out her Women's Championship as Dana clutches it happily and begins to shine it up, seemingly happy to follow Charlotte's instructions and to be given another chance. The camera headed back to ringside where a local talent was in the ring- stretching and warming up. Jim Ross would then talk about Charlotte and how she's on a power trip and is treating Dana Brooke like a peasant. "JBL" says that Charlotte is the most gifted women on the roster and perhaps the most gifted athlete in the world today! Layfield says that Dana should be thanking Charlotte and kissing the feet of the Champion for allowing her to walk alongside and learn from OUR queen and Women's Champion! Booker says that Charlotte is no queen and that her actions are questionable to say the least and she's going to have her hands full with the Lass-Kicker, Becky Lynch! "JR" then announces that the man in the ring is a local wrestler from here in Austin, Texas! He announces that he's going one on one with the United States Champion! Rusev!


    Match Two: Rusev W/ Lana vs Mark Roberts (Local talent)
    Finish: The bell sounds and Rusev immediately runs through Roberts like a train- knocking him down! Rusev then begins to stomp down on Mark Roberts before dragging him up and throwing him into the turnbuckle corner before launching at him with shoulder strikes to the stomach. Rusev then takes a couple of steps back before running at Roberts with a leaping Stinger like splash! Roberts falls to the ground like jelly, splattered across the canvas as "JR" calls for mercy from Rusev. The Bulgarian Brute then poses with a smile on his face before Lana leaps up onto the ring apron and calls for Rusev to CRUSH!! Rusev then allows Roberts to stand up before smashing him into the face with a jumping super-kick before locking in the accolade as Mark Roberts would fade and the Referee official would call for the ring bell to end the match.


    Spoiler:

    WINNER: RUSEV!


    The crowd would boo heavily as the Referee raised Rusev's hand in victory! Lana would enter the ring, clapping and praising her Husbands victory before receiving his US Championship and a microphone from a ringside worker as Lana would place the US Championship across Rusev's shoulder before speaking. Lana speaks and congratulates her Husband, the United States Champion and the only man for her- the Bulgarian Brute- Ruuuseevvvv on his victory! Lana says that just like all the men in the crowd tonight- Ryder a couple of weeks ago could not keep her eyes off the Ravishing Russian and he paid the price!

    The Titantron then goes live and shows the backstage segment from a previous Smackdown.


    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.
    The crowd are booing as the Tron finishes and the live camera returns back to the ring as Lana continues speaking. She says that Zack Ryder is just like all you Americans.. STUPID! Lana continues on and says that Ryder should have learned by now that he will never beat the Bulgarian Brute, the United States Champion! Ruuuseeevvv! Lana then smiles as again the crowd boo before passing the microphone to Rusev and he begins to speak. Rusev says that Ryder is a loser and will lose every time he comes face to face with him because he's the superior athlete and the greatest United States Champion of all time!


    RADIO!!


    The Texas crowd cheers as Ryder steps out from the stage and begins to make his way down the ramp. He stops just before the ring, receives a microphone and replies to Lana and Rusev. Ryder says that he's not a loser because losers run away like cowards, just like Rusev did last week when he showed up to confront him after his match with Randy Orton! Ryder says that he's never ever give up and he never will. Ryder says that he loves this business, he loves the WWE Universe and off course, he loves America! He says until there's a United States Champion that we can be proud off.. He's going to keep turning up and annoying Rusev because he's no more then a bully and he's not scared of him! Not to mention he's the worst United States Champion there's ever been in this company!

    The crowd would cheer on Ryder's every word as Rusev would be furiously animated in the ring as his wife- Lana tried to calm him down. Ryder would continue on and would finish by saying he wants to face Rusev at SummerSlam and challenge him to a match for the United States Championship! The crowd are chanting "YES!" but Lana is shaking her head and wagging her finger to say no. However, Rusev has heard enough and says that he's sick at the sight of Ryder and his stupid catchphrases! He says that he would love the chance to crush Ryder for good this time and promises him that at SummerSlam, it will be Ryder's ever last match! He accepts the challenge and the match is made!


    >> COMMERCIAL <<

    The camera returns from the break as we are welcomed back by the commentary team and the theme of the Lass-Kicker Becky Lynch plays as she's already in the ring. "JR" reminds us that Becky is set to go one on one with the Women's Champion- Charlotte Flair and if she can pick up the win tonight- she would put herself in real contention to challenge for the Championship in the future!


    RECOGNITION!!


    The crowd boo for the "Queen" as she struts out from behind the curtain with a smile on her face and her Women's Championship shining seemingly better then ever. Dana Brooke once more at her side, clapping Charlotte's every step and berating the booing crowd. Charlotte takes her time and soaks in the atmosphere, almost blanking the crowd completely before entering the ring and the match is on.


    Match Three: Charlotte Flair W/ Dana Brooke vs Becky Lynch
    Finish: The match bell sounded and Charlotte went on the attack, catching Becky off-guard with a shoulder block to the back of Lynch's knee taking her down. Charlotte would then show her ruthless streak through out the match, taking a page out of her fathers play book and she was looked on to the same knee all match. At every change she would home in on the now injured knee, kicks and stomps. Charlotte at one point would even wrap Becky's leg's around the ring post and would lock in the figure-four as the crowd would boo while Charlotte used up every second of the Referee's legal count she could.

    Becky though wouldn't give up and show great heart to fight back. At one point Charlotte would be in trouble after Becky would side step a big boot and would hit the Bex-Ploder to Charlotte into the turnbuckle that garnered a cheer from the crowd. Becky would cover only for Dana Brooke to show her worth and place Charlotte's foot on the ropes with the Referee breaking up the count. Becky would be furious and would chase Dana around ringside but would fall into a trap as Charlotte would leap of the ring apron with a body splash to take Becky down. Charlotte would then really show her malicious side as she would sling Becky into the steel steps, knee first and is the sound of the collision echoed around ringside and Becky screamed in agony. The Referee would almost stop the match as Charlotte and Dana were already celebrating only for Becky to wow the crowd as she would stand up and demand the Referee to continue the match. Charlotte would then argue with the Referee and tell him he should have ended the match- perhaps worried that Becky will not give up.

    The match continued on and Becky battled with everything she had- coming close one more time. Charlotte had Becky on her shoulders only for Becky to escape and roll up Charlotte for a near three count but as Charlotte kicked out- Becky would slide out and would lock in the DIS-ARM-HER! The crowd would pop as Charlotte had no way of escape and was in the middle of the ring. Dana again to the rescue! She would leap on the apron and try to enter the match as the Referee would get up and stop her. In the ring- Charlotte would tap but the Referee couldn't see it and the Texas crowd were furious! Becky would release the hold and would forearm smash Brooke of the canvas with venom and anger. As she turned back around though- Charlotte would nail Becky with a big boot and would follow it up..



    NATURAL SELECTION!! Shouted "JBL" as he says it's over! Charlotte then covers and "JBL" would be correct as the Women's Champion and Queen would pick up the victory! One! Two! Three! Booker would be quick to point out that Becky made the Champion tap out and had it not been for Dana Brooke, this match would have been over with Becky Lynch being victorious.


    Spoiler:

    WINNER: CHARLOTTE FLAIR!!


    The match was over but their was no celebration from the Queen and just like she said earlier in the show, she wanted to said a message to Natalya and did. She would lock in the Figure-Eight and Becky would scream and yell in agony as Dana Brooke stopped the Referee from break it up. Becky would being tapping but Charlotte had no intention of releasing the hold.


    NEW FOUNDATION!!


    The crowd popped as the Queen of Hart's came running down the ramp and entered the ring. Charlotte had already released the hold and would flee with her Championship in hand before Nattie could even get close but Dana Brooke would eat a spinning discuss forearm from Natalya before she would roll out of the ring. Natalya would go to Becky and would call down for help from the back as Chalotte looked pleased and would mouth that Natalya will get the same treatment at SummerSlam!


    The live shot would then leave ringside and pre-taped clips of Alberto Del Rio, Jack Swagger, Mark Henry and Bullet Club members- Anderson & Gallows are shown talking about the Battle Royal tonight and their plans to win the match and head to SummerSlam to compete for the World Heavyweight Championship! Del Rio says that SummerSlam without Mexico's greatest import is worthless and he's going to win the match.. Si! Si! Si! Swagger is up next and says that the All American is going to eliminate everyone else and become the next World Champion because.. WE.. The People! Henry is up next and says that tonight the Texas boy is going to win the Battle Royal and throw everyone else over the top rope! BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT I DO! Lastly it's the turn of the Club and both Gallows and Anderson say that the good brothers are going to enter the Battle Royal and eliminate those.. NERDS! Anderson and Gallows suggest that one of them is going to bring the World Heavyweight Championship home to the Bullet Club and when they do.. It will be.. 2-SWWEEEEEETTTT! The vignette then ends and the live camera returns to Smackdown at ringside where the fourth match of the night is about to begin!
    Match Four: Shining Stars vs The Dudley Boyz.
    Finish: Bell to bell this has been a good contest with both teams shining and putting on a good tag team match for the WWE Universe. The match clock ticks around the 5 to 6 minute mark with Epico & Primo teaming after a tag and dropping Dvon with double dropkicks before running at Bubba and knocking him off the ring apron with double forearm smashes as Bubba Ray fell to the hard floor on the outside. Primo the legal man would take to the top turnbuckle and would look to sore before landing with a swanton bomb in the middle of the ring. Dvon would move and Primo would land back first on the canvas. Dvon would then use the ropes to stand back up before Epico would leap over the ropes and would look to clothesline Dvon before Dvon would strike first with a kick to the stomach before landing with a spine buster on Epico and sending him rolling out of the ring. Dvon would then scoop up Primo before slamming him back down with a scoop power slam! Dvon would then tag in Bubba Ray before Dvon would climb the turnbuckle. "JR" says that what goes up, must come down! Bubba would hold Primo's legs back and in the air as Dvon would leap of the turnbuckle and lands with a headbutt to the crotch area as the crowd shouted along... WAAASSSSSSSUUPPPPPP?! Bubba would then turn to deal with a re-entering Epico and would drop him with a Bubba Bomb before tagging back in Dvon and then swinging Primo into the ropes where Dvon would lift him up and right on queue..




    ..3-D! DUDLEY DEATH DROP! Shouted Jim Ross as Dvon Dudley would scramble and hook the leg of Primo before covering and picking up the win! One! Two! Three!


    Spoiler:

    WINNERS: DUDLEY BOYZ!!


    The crowd celebrate as the Dudley Boyz have their hands raised in victory. The Shining Stars quickly exit the ring as Ross says that both team's put on a good display! Bubba and Dvon then ask's for microphones and receive them before speaking.


    BUBBA RAY: Shining Stars, you're lucky that me and my Brother, Dvon. We've got bigger plans then you two otherwise ya'll would have been picking splinters out of your ass because you would have gone through tables!


    DVON: Our attention is on one team! The Revival! Dash, Dawson, come out.. come out, where ever you are!


    BUBBA RAY: Revival, you were personally invited by the Dudley Boyz to be here tonight and it's time to put up or shut up! You claim that you are the best tag team in the world today. You claim that you are going to revive tag team wrestling. You claim that you can beat us? Well let's see boys, let's go!


    The Dudley Boyz are hot and the crowd are cheering them on. Attention turns to the stage as they await the debut of the Revival but the commentary team quickly identify that neither of them have seen the Revival backstage today and they don't believe that they are here tonight! "JBL" then says no way, that can't be? The camera then turns to the stage...


    Spoiler:




    Jim Ross shouts what the hell is he doing here? That's Jim Cornette! "JBL" says he loves "Corny" but he has no idea what Jim Cornette is doing here tonight! Booker says that he has a feeling that something is about to go down!


    Cornette stands with a smile on his face and his traditional Tennis racket in his hand and a microphone in the other as he's about to speak. The crowd are confused as to who's on the stage aside from a few hardcore fans who are shocked and begin to chant the name of Cornette. "JR" says that many of our fans might not be aware of this man but he's associated and aligned himself with some of the best wrestlers and legendary names in this business! People like Owen Hart, Yokozuna, Vader, the Rock N' Roll and the Midnight Express! Booker then says but what's he doing here, Ross? "JBL" then shushes Booker and says that "Corny" is about to speak!


    JIM CORNETTE: Surprise! I bet you didn't expect to see my face tonight did ya?! I'm back in the WWE to save you all.. I am sick to death of seeing wrestling die! You got these two! Dvon and Bubba Ray Dudley! People like these guys are the reasons why wrestling has become a joke and why fans are turning away and want nothing to do with wrestling anymore! Real wrestling fans like me, not sheep like all of you that have embraced bingo hall nobodies like Dvon and Bubba Ray that have allowed them to forge and steal a career in this business with little to no wrestling ability!


    The crowd are booing heavily while the Dudley Boyz are pissed in the ring.


    JIM CORNETTE: Real wrestling is on life support! However, there is hope! There is one team that has showed me that real wrestling still exists. No need for tables, chairs or ladders. No flips.. Just fists! It's time for a wrestling... REVIVAL!


    The Dudley Boyz have heard enough and are about to exit the ring and confront Jim Cornette when there's a small pop from the crowd and it's Dash & Dawson, the Revival jumping over the barricade and sliding into the ring and attacking the Dudley Boyz with a blindside attack. Dash & Dawson beat down on the Dudley Boyz as Jim Cornette encourages them from at the top of the stage. Dawson places Bubba in position for a German suplex as Dash Wilder nails Bubba with a European Uppercut combination to devastating effect. The Revival then turn their attention to Dvon and lift him up before bringing him down with the.. SHATTER MACHINE!!


    "JBL" Shouts that Cornette is leading Dash and Dawson in a wrestling Revival and it's awesome! "JR" says that real wrestling would have been the Revival coming down and facing the Dudleys face to face, not attacking them when their back is turned. Booker says that either way, Cornette and the Revival have made their mark tonight but that he has no doubt that the Dudley Boyz will respond in due time. Ross then says that speaking of revenge, we are going to go live with Tom Phillips who's guest at this time might have revenge on his mind as he's joined by the Demon King- Finn Balor!


    Tom Phillips thanks the commentary team and announces his guest as the man who will be one of five men heading to SummerSlam to compete for the World Heavyweight Championship! He is the Demon King! The Real Rock N' Rolla! Finn Balor! Finn Balor thanks Tom Phillips for the introduction as the crowd pop at the sight of Finn Balor appearing on the Titantron. Tom Phillips ask's Balor for his thoughts on last week's Main Event match and Seth Rollins backstabbing him and costing their team the match?

    Balor cuts a frustrated figure and says that he does not know why he's surprised because Seth has proven to be nothing but a snake his whole career and yet he expected more from him last week- he thought that Seth would have some honor and class to finish the match and have some desire to win but Rollins cares for nothing but Seth Rollins! Balor says that's now in the past and he's only focusing on the now and the future and he can't wait to perform at SummerSlam and become the NEW.. World Heavyweight Champion! Balor says as for tonight- he's got a preview match with Neville and that both are going to tear the house down and give the fans a show. Tom thanks Balor for his time and thoughts as the show goes to a commercial break.


    >> COMMERCIAL <<


    The camera returns from the break and goes backstage where an animated Shane and Eric are speaking about last week's show and the situation with Brock and how it happened, we should have been more prepared says Shane Mcmahon and Eric agree's but states he did his best but the Beast was on a war path of destruction! Shane then goes to speak on further but the GM door swings open and in walk a pissed off looking Dvon and Bubba Ray Dudley. Bubba says that him and his brother- Dvon are pissed and want the Revival tonight! Make it happen Shane or we are going to do this outside of the ring and it won't be pretty. Shane ask's the Dudley's to calm down and says that quite frankly, he's annoyed too! He's getting frustrated by wrestlers on his roster doing what ever they want at the moment and that's not going to fly anymore!


    Eric makes a suggestion and says that the tag division have two feuds bubbling right now and he see's this as a good chance to showcase the division! Eric says how about at SummerSlam- Enzo & Cass with the Dudley Boyz vs the Club and the Revival! Shane says he likes it and as long as the Dudley Boyz don't do nothing tonight and wait till Sunday, he will make it official. The Dudley's nod their head and agree before walking out of the office.


    The camera returns to ringside and over to the commentary table where Jim Ross confirms the breaking news that at SummerSlam it will be Enzo & Cass, teaming with the Dudley Boyz to face Gallows & Anderson and Revival who are seemingly being led by Jim Cornette! "JBL" says it's going to be a slobber-knocker as he mocked "JR's" voice while Booker T said he's excited for that.. but he's even more excited for the next match of the evening and it's coming up now- Neville vs Finn Balor!


    Match Five: Neville vs Finn Balor
    Finish: The crowd in attendance cheered and chanted for both men as both Balor and Neville made there way down the ramp and took there place in the ring. Real excitement surrounded the match as the commentary trio hyped that we could be about to see a classic from two young stars at the top of their game! Neville and Balor both then approached the middle of the ring- traded some words and shook hands as the crowd once again cheered before both men retreated back to their corners and the sound of the bell rung to start the match.

    The match went 8-9 minutes of solid action with both men impressing and wowing the crowd with their exceptional ability and wrestling skills. Near falls were plentiful and both Balor and Neville looked like they had the match won a couple of times with a last minute kick out or foot on the rope blocking the outcome. As things stand- both Neville and Finn are center of the ring- trading chops, punches and kicks as the crowd cheered along.

    Neville!
    Balor!
    Neville!
    Balor!
    Neville!
    Balor!
    Neville!

    Both men continued to trade strikes as Jim Ross announces that the match has a real Japanese feel to it with both men hitting each other with that Japanese strong style! Neville and Balor have lit up each others bodies with hard strikes but Balor would go for a spinning back fist only for Neville to duck underneath and attempt a back body drop but Balor would escape and fall on his feet before gripping Neville and hitting a German Suplex as Neville came crashing back down on his next and shoulders, rolling out of the ring. Balor would then stand up and look back before running at the ropes and leaping through the second with a..





    ..SUICIDE DIVE!! Yelled Jim Ross as Balor crashed into Neville with so much force it took both men close to the edge of the ramp as the crowd cheered for the collision. Balor then grabbed up Neville and began to drag him towards the ring as the Referee began to count the count-out. Neville would fight back as they reached the ringside, elbowing Balor in the stomach before leaping off onto the ring apron and then hitting a stunning moonsault from the second rope to the outside..




    ..landing perfectly on Balor as the crowd cheered for the athleticism shown as both men laid motionless on the outside as Jim Ross put over the bravery and ability of both men. "JBL" would point to the Referee now reaching the seven mark and are both in danger of being counted out. The crowd are willing both men to get back up and continue the match and right before the Referee shouts Ten- Neville and Balor slide in the ring to cheers from the crowd as the match continues on!


    Finn and Neville were clearly exhausted as Booker T says that both men are running on empty! Balor and Neville use the ropes to stand up on either side before running at each other as Neville would duck a clothesline from Balor before leaping up with a Hurricarana into a pin attempt.. One! Two! Thr-No! The match was almost over in a flash with Balor kicking out at the last split second. Both men then scrambled up and this time Neville went for a clothesline only for Balor to land a Sling Blade in the center of the ring and went for a pin attempt! One! Two! Thr-No! This time Neville would kick out at the final split second and Jim Ross would again praise both men for the display and desire shown. Balor though would then take to the turnbuckle and would stand over Neville before mouthing it's over and jumping with the.. COUP DE' GRACE! Double foot stomps to Neville ends the contest as Balor goes for the cover and picks up the victory! One! Two! Three!


    Spoiler:

    WINNER: FINN BALOR!!


    The crowd would give large cheers as Balor would stand tall with his arms raised in victory. There was bigger cheers though when Balor would help up Neville and both men would trade words before shaking hands once more. "JR" says that both men put on a great match but that it's only a taste of the action we will see at SummerSlam where both men will join Rollins, Apollo Crews and the Battle Royal winner to compete for the World Heavyweight Championship match! We get one final shot at Balor and Neville standing together with the crowd cheering for both as the live footage heads backstage.

    The live footage goes to the back where Seth Rollins is shown having watched the Neville and Balor match, unimpressed as he shakes his head. Renee Young then approaches Seth with a camera crew and ask's if she can have a moment of Seth's time. Seth breathes out and rolls his eyes before agreeing. Renee thanks Seth before asking him for his thoughts on the match that Neville and Balor just had and if he's worried about facing either of them at SummerSlam after seeing that? Seth then replies.


    SETH ROLLINS: Average! It was Average, Renee. I mean- You look surprised Renee? Here's the deal, you put two average wrestlers in there and guess what?! You're going to get an average match! It's that simple. Neither of them, nor Apollo, or anyone else that could enter the match after winning the Battle Royal can match up to the MAN- Seth Rollins!


    Renee will then ask Seth about his actions last week- low blowing Finn Balor and walking out on his partner costing them the match.


    SETH ROLLINS: I don't need to explain anything, to anyone. Balor deserved it Renee, he deserved it. I don't feel bad at all and I'm not going to feel bad come SummerSlam either when everyone is broken down and laid out below me as I climb the ladder to success, rung by rung and I grasp the Championship and become the World Heavyweight Champion!!


    The crowd boo the words of Rollins before there are a splatter of cheers as Apollo Crews enters the camera shot and has some words to say.


    APOLLO CREWS: I'm sorry to disappoint the "MAN" but you won't be winning the World Heavyweight Championship come SummerSlam because it's the Apollo era and it's my time! I've worked all my life, family struggles, the blood, sweat and tears. They've all lead to this opportunity and I'm not going to let it slip away. I am going to become the World Heavyweight Champion!


    Renee nods her head as Apollo finishes speaking with real passion. Seth then roll's his eyes and begins to laugh before finally tapping Apollo on his shoulder and walking past as he said..


    SETH ROLLINS: Nice dream, Kid. I'm going to.. Burn.. It.. Down!


    Seth and Apollo then bumped shoulders as tension rises while Apollo turned to confront Seth again only for Renee to grab Apollo's arm and calm him down. The segment then ends and heads backstage where the Vaudevillians are set for tag team action.


    The crowd boo'd the Vaudevillians as they stood in the ring with microphone's in hand ready to speak. The crowd jeers died down a little and both Gotch & English sensing their chance began to speak. Aiden the more vocal of the two would say how it's a disgrace that a match has been made to showcase the tag team division at SummerSlam and neither him nor this fine gentleman to my side are involved? Simon Gotch would say that you can't showcase a tag team division without the most talented team! Aiden English will say that the Vaudevillians would have added much needed class and sophistication to the PPv. Simon Gotch will say that it's a travesty that the Vaudevillians will not be at the Brooklyn Center and that someone is going to pay for this tonight because it's an open challenge to any team back there!


    Aiden English and Simon Gotch then throw the microphones out of the ring and attention turns to the stage where the eager WWE Universe await the opponents for the Vaudevillians.


    HEROES!!


    The crowd that are in the know pop like mad while those that don't are intrigued and stay glued to the attention of the stage where a theme that's not been heard for many years begins to play. Jim Ross immediately speculates if indeed it could be them?

    Spoiler:



    Jim Ross then screams it's two time WWE Tag Team Champions- Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin- The Worlds Greatest Tag Team! "JBL" then says first Cornette, now Haas and Benjamin? He says it's been a night for surprises. Booker says that Haas and Benjamin are two of the best pure wrestlers this business has ever seen and they've answered the open challenge. Haas and Shelton look delighted to be back as they make their way down the ramp and step inside the ring as the Vaudevillians are in complete shock.


    Match Five: Vaudevillians vs Haas & Benjamin.
    Finish: The match went 3 to 4 minutes with Haas and Benjamin in complete control and wowing the crowd with their grappling skills and ability as they cheered "You've still got it!" at both men. Aiden English and Simon Gotch had a short spell of dominance in the match but they seemed in awe at the Worlds Greatest Tag Team and their experience as they couldn't sustain the offense. Haas and Benjamin finish the match by delivering the Star Spangled Banner to Aiden English- a aided leapfrog guillotine before Benjamin would super-kick Gotch to the jaw, knocking him back into a big German Suplex and bridge from Charlie Haas. Haas would then pick up the win for the World's Greatest Tag Team! One! Two! Three!


    Spoiler:

    WINNERS: HAAS & BENJAMIN!!


    Haas and Benjamin would stand tall in the ring- celebrating their victory as the crowd cheered them. "JR" would highlight the talent and depth in the tag team division with the arrival of the Worlds Greatest Tag Team before announcing that still to come- it's our Main Event! A Battle Royal to determine the fifth man that will enter the "WHC" ladder match at SummerSlam! The show then goes to commercial.


    >> COMMERCIAL BREAK <<


    Before the live footage returns from the final commercial of the evening- a vignette begins to play. It showcases various pictures of a women at various stages of her life and career starting with her at a very young age in among wrestling fans watching her mother wrestle as the voice over says..

    The vignette then skips and various negative headlines and bad press appear on the stage with numerous twitter comments painting the women in a bad light as the voice over says..


    "The end?"


    The video then goes dark before a primal scream can be heard and the voice over says..


    "Britani Knight..


    ...The story continues.


    The story is not over..


    ..More chapters are to be written. It's time for the next Paige."



    11/09/2016


    THE ANTI-DIVA IS REBORN.


    The vignette footage then fades and we are back on Smackdown Live as the commentary team welcome us back from the break once more. "JR" first talks about the return of the World's Greatest Team and what this will mean for the pending tag team division on Smackdown Live. Booker says their experience and ability is going to be a threat to everyone! "JBL" says that Haas and Benjamin are two of the best athlete's that the WWE has ever seen but times have changed. We got our first sight of the Revival tonight and with them being led by the managerial genius that is.. James E Cornette, not even Haas and Benjamin can match up anymore. Jim Ross then switches gears and says that up next is the Battle Royal Main Event and reminds us that the winner will head to SummerSlam and become the fifth man joining Apollo, Neville, Balor and Rollins in the ladder match to determine the new- World Heavyweight Champion!



    Pre-taped clips are once again shown of various wrestlers competing in tonight's Main Event and looking to win the Battle Royal this evening. This time it's Ryder, Baron Corbin, Rusev and "Y2KO"- Jericho and Owens. Lana speaks for Rusev and says that tonight the greatest United States Champion of all time will CRUSH the competition and throw everyone over the top rope! Ryder then speaks and says tonight he takes one step closer to the ultimate dream of becoming World Heavyweight Champion! Woo, Woo, Woo, you know it bro! Corbin is next and says that unlike everyone else, he shouldn't be in this Battle Royal because he doesn't need to prove anything and should already be in the match at SummerSlam! Baron says that for the other 19 men he will bring their end of days and he will become the next World Heavyweight Champion!


    Lastly, it's the turn of Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho. Jericho speaks first and says that he's made a list and this is not any normal list.. It's not the list of Jericho baby! This is the list of Battle Royal competitors that have come forward and each one is going over the top rope and will be eliminated. You dig? Jericho says it's then going to come down to two men.. The GOAT and his best friend- Kevin Owens! Jericho then says that they're both then going to eliminate each other at the same time and will both go on to SummerSlam where they will both become the World Heavyweight Champion bay-bay! Owens then stops Jericho and says Chris, we've discussed this.. on Talking Smack? It's almost impossible. Jericho and Owens then began to squabble a little before Owens then turns to the camera and says that Shane and Bischoff have screwed up Smackdown from day one and continue to overlook the two best wrestlers and the two best friends on this planet. Owens says now everyone else in the Battle Royal is going to pay the price because tonight is the Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho show and at SummerSlam the "WHC" is coming home with "Y2KO!"
    The clip then finishes and the live footage returns to ringside where the ring is already starting to fill up with various wrestlers as the Texas crowd are cheering with excitement. Enzo Amore, Dvon & Bubba, Zack Ryder, Mark Henry, Del Rio, Jack Swagger, Epico & Primo, Rusev, Baron Corbin and Haas & Benjamin have now all entered the ring and begin sizing up the competition. Corbin and Henry go face to face as the Referee and remaining in-ring wrestlers split them apart as they await the others to enter the match.


    SHOT'EM!!


    The crowd boo as all three members of the Bullet Club step out from gorilla position and onto the stage. All three men hit the "2-Sweet" pose before AJ wishes the good brothers- Anderson & Gallows luck before they make their way down the ramp and enter the ring. Gallows and Anderson immediately approach Enzo Amore and it looks bleak for him but the crowd soon cheer as Enzo is pulled back by the Dudley Boyz who step in front and have no trouble confronting the Bullet Club members ahead of their SummerSlam match up.


    FIGHT!!

    Out next and the boo's continue as Owens steps out with his best friend and tag team partner- Chris Jericho alongside him. Both men are in discussion on their way down the ramp before teasing to enter the ring and instead they circle it instead- taking their time. Eventually Owens and Jericho enter and take their place in one of the turnbuckle corners when the lights go out.


    "Austin, Texas.. WE'RE HERE!!"



    LIVE IN FEAR!!


    There's a pop before a mixed response sounds for the arrival of Bray Wyatt and his monstrous black sheep- Braun Strowman who towers behind him in menacing fashion as everyone in the ring watches on with intrigue and possibly even fear running through their minds and body. The Wyatt Family reach the ring for the first time ever on Smackdown and as Bray blows out the lantern the lights come back on and the crowd pop again as Braun steps on to the ring apron and in the middle of the ring as those around him part like the Red sea. Bray then enters the ring with a smile on his face as the commentary team put over the monster among men and ask who can possibly stop him from winning this Battle Royal match? At this point- the Wyatt Family are on one side of the ring while everyone else is congregated on the other side. "JR" says that everyone else might need to team up and remove the real threat of Bray Wyatt and his black sheep- Braun Strowman. The wrestlers then prepare to circle around Braun when the lights go out again..


    SLOW CHEMICAL!!


    An explosion of fire hits the stage and the crowd pop like crazy as "JR" screams that it's the BIG RED MACHINE- KANE!!



    The devils favorite demon walks down the ramp and the face of Bray Wyatt is a picture. Bray like the Texas crowd are totally stunned by the return of Kane. Kane reaches the ring and pulls himself up onto the apron before stepping over the ropes as the wrestlers all exit the ring. The crowd are chanting "this is awesome!" as remaining in the ring and on opposite sides are now Kane and Braun Strowman who go face to face. Jim Ross says that we have just found the answer on who can stop Braun or Bray winning this match tonight and his name is Kane! Booker says this is history tonight- Kane and Braun come face to face for the first time on Smackdown Live and it's awesome!

    The official then orders everyone else back in the ring and eventually the ring begins to fill back up. Kane and Braun remain locked in a face to face. Sizing up each other. The remaining wrestlers all surround them but the focus is solely on these two monsters until a small section of the crowd begins to cheer a wrestlers name that is not signed to Smackdown Live. Soon the rest of the Texas crowd follow on and to the surprise of everyone..


    IT'S THE ONE MAN BAND- HEATH SLATER! Shouts "JBL" before asking what the hell is he doing here?! Layfield goes on to say that Heath isn't signed with Smackdown before Jim Ross reminds him that Heath Slater isn't signed with the WWE at all.. He's a free agent! Booker says that it looks like Heath Slater has come to get a job and he's going to enter the Battle Royal.


    The crowd are cheering for Slater who's not even dressed for action as he enters the ring. He taunts with the crowd and is apparently oblivious to anything else as he bumps into both Kane and Braun before turning around and waving his hands in apology. Kane and Braun then give the fans another cool moment as both men at the same time grab Slater around the throat before picking him up and sending him to hell with a double choke slam as the ring bell is sounded and the Battle Royal is officially underway!


    Main Event: Battle Royal match (Dudley Boyz, Kane, Wyatt Family, Haas & Benjamin, Heath Slater, Epico & Promo, Gallows & Anderson, Jack Swagger, Rusev, Zack Ryder, Jericho & Owens, Mark Henry, Alberto Del Rio, Enzo Amore & Baron Corbin) - Winner will enter "WHC" match at SummerSlam.
    Match: The match started with a double choke slam from Kane and Braun on Slater as Jericho, Owens and Bray would exit the ring while everyone else would team up on the two monsters of the match. Braun and Kane would be tipping over the top rope before both would explode into action and fight back everyone else, punches left, right and center would knock down their opponents before Kane would grab Epico by the throat and choke slam him over the top rope for the first elimination of the match while not to be outdone- Braun would grab up Primo in a gorilla position and would launch him over the top rope before both monsters would go face to face one more time as the crowd popped again.


    (Epico & Primo eliminated by Kane & Braun Strowman respectively)


    Kane and Bruan would both be under attack again as once more the remaining wrestlers grouped together and attacked the two big men and this time the numbers were overwhelming as they would beat both down in their respective corners before it would become a free for all as intended. The Bullet Club would brawl with the Dudleyz while Del Rio and Swagger fought in another corner. Corbin would attack Henry and attempt to lift him over the top rope while Haas & Benjamin worked over Braun. Enzo and Ryder would work on the Bulgarian Brute as the action was all across the ring. The next elimination came with the Bullet Club and Dudley Boyz battling as Gallows & Anderson would separate Dvon away from Bubba before Gallows picked up Dvon close to the ring ropes and then Karl Anderson ran the ropes and smashed Dvon into the face with the BOOT OF DOOM! Dvon would fall off Gallows shoulders and hard to the floor on the outside.


    (Dvon eliminated by the Bullet Club)


    Anderson & Gallows were not done and would then team on Bubba Ray. They would beat him down before attempting to hook him over the top rope- only for Haas & Benjamin to make the save. On the other side of the ring- Corbin, Rusev and Del Rio were working over Mark Henry and looked to have him eliminated only for the founding member of the Hall of Pain to fight back. Henry would knock down Rusev with a series of head butts before running at Corbin and Del Rio taking them down with a double clothesline and shouting "THAT'S WHAT I DO!!" as the crowd cheered. Henry then turned around as he came face to face with Braun. Strowman would clutch his hand around the throat of Henry and would begin to choke him as Henry looked like he was going to fade only for Henry to fight back with his strength and chop away Braun's arm and begin to knock the bigger man back with punch after punch. Henry would have Braun on the ropes and would line up for a big clothesline only for Bray to enter and nail Henry from behind with a double axe-handle strike to the back of the head. Bray would then beat down on Henry as Braun would join him.


    On the other side of the ring Rusev and Swagger would now be brawling close to the ropes and Rusev would look to kick him over with a super-kick only for Swagger to catch him, bring him down and lock in the Ankle Lock as the crowd began to cheer. Rusev would try and fight out before tapping out as Jim Ross reminded us that to be eliminated- you have to be thrown over the top rope with boot feet touching the ground. Del Rio would break up the Ankle Lock with a super-kick of his own, knocking down Swagger. Del Rio would pose as Enzo Amore came charging at him. Del Rio would see this and would back body drop Enzo over the top rope but he would clutch on and pull himself back up on to the ring apron as Del Rio thought he was eliminated. Del Rio would turn around and Enzo would look to leap back into the ring only for Del Rio to react first and leap off the second turnbuckle and nail Amore off the ring apron with an enziguri off the second turnbuckle before posing.


    (Enzo Amore eliminated by Del Rio)


    As Del Rio was posing- Ryder was poised and would run at Del Rio with the ROUGH RYDER! Ryder would then chant along with the crowd.. Woo! Woo! Woo! Before teaming with Swagger to eliminate Alberto Del Rio throwing him over the top rope!


    (Alberto Del Rio eliminated by Ryder & Swagger)


    At this point- Rusev would be back up and would knock both Swagger and Ryder down with clotheslines. Rusev would then drag up Ryder and would place him leaning over the ropes. Rusev would then taunt before running at Ryder with the jumping high kick only for Ryder to move and Rusev would come tumbling over the top rope and was left clutching to the middle rope as he struggled to stay in the match. Ryder would then see his chance to eliminate Rusev and would be in position only for Owens & Jericho to enter the match and with Ryder focused on Rusev- they would launch Ryder over the top rope to his elimination as the crowd booed.


    (Ryder eliminated by Owens & Jericho)


    Y2KO would then turn their attention to Swagger who was getting back up. Jericho would then nail him with the CODE-BREAKER before Owens would charge at him on the way back up with a clothesline sending him over the top rope and thus eliminated from the match!


    (Swagger eliminated by Kevin Owens)


    Jericho & Owens would then both smile before embracing and hugging as the crowd boo'ed. Their celebrating was short lived though as Kane would grip both by the throat and with the crowd cheering him on- DOUBLE CHOKE SLAM! Jericho & Owens would again roll out of the ring- underneath the ropes. Kane would then turn back around to eye up who was next but Corbin and the Bullet Club would rush him with forearms and kicks. Gallows would then run the ropes and smash Kane with a big boot to the face knocking him down! Anderson & Gallows would "2-Sweet" each other but before they could even think about their next move, Kane sat up as the crowd cheered once more. The Club would begin to back away only for Anderson to walk into a WORLD'S STRONGEST SLAM from Mark Henry! Before Gallows could even react Bubba Ray was on to him with big right hands to the face, knocking him back. Bubba then called over Haas & Benjamin as the World's Greatest Tag Team leaped up with a double drop kick's knocking Gallows over the rope to his elimination.


    (Luke Gallows eliminated by Haas & Benjamin)


    Haas & Benjamin would both kip' back up as the crowd cheered but their celebrations would be cut short as Corbin and Rusev would attack Hass while Braun and Bray would attack Benjamin. Rusev slung Hass into the corner before following up with a big splash and then slinging him into the path of Corbin who nailed Charlie Haas with an END OF DAYS in the middle of the ring. Braun and Bray would be beating on Benjamin when Bray would go to the nearby turnbuckle and would do his "crab" like movement as he started walking towards Benjamin who would leap up in fear, his eyes white like he had seen a ghost only to walk into a reverse choke slam from the monstrous Strowman! Corbin and Rusev would then drag up a lifeless Charlie Haas and without any thought at all- would launch him over the top rope!


    (Charlie Hass eliminated by Corbin & Rusev)


    Baron Corbin and Rusev would be in discussion, perhaps looking to form a partnership before they turned to their next victim- Kane. As Kane was resting on the ropes, Corbin and Rusev would approach only to receive uppercut right hands that knocked each one back. Kane would nail Corbin with a big boot before catching Rusev with a sidewalk slam to the canvas. Kane would then raise his right arm and adjust his glove before waiting for either one to get up and eat a choke slam. Anderson though jumps on his back and tries to lock in a sleeper hold only for Kane to throw him over his shoulder and out of the ring. Anderson though would land on the ring apron and would even dodge a big boot from Kane as he side stepped out of the way. He then attempted to enter the ring once more only for Bubba to charge at him with a shoulder block and send him flying into the crowd barrier at ringside and now eliminated from the match!


    (Anderson eliminated by Bubba Ray)


    As Bubba Ray turned around he would be greeted by Bray who would kick him in the stomach before planting him with SISTER ABIGAIL! Bray would then stand with his arms in the air, taking in the mixed response from the crowd before turning to Braun and demanding him to throw Bubba over the top rope. Braun drags up a lifeless Bubba and does as Bray says.. launching him over the top rope to his elimination!


    (Bubba Ray eliminated by Braun Strowman)


    Braun would then let out a roar and pose for the crowd as they watched on with intrigue. The crowd then started cheering as Mark Henry approached and the two behemoths went at it in the middle of the ring- trading strikes and blows as neither man backed down. Bray observed before it looked like Braun was in trouble, getting involved by kicking Henry's leg from underneath him. On the other side of the ring- Corbin and Rusev turned their attentions to Benjamin as they tried to eliminate him. Shelton would fight back- punching Corbin and Rusev back before ducking a double clothesline attempt. Shelton would then fire back with a Super-Kick that connected sweetly with Rusev's chin- knocking him over the top rope. Rusev would hold the ropes on the apron and Shelton would land another one! SUPER-KICK! Rusev would fly off the ring apron and land hard to the flooring as the crowd were shocked. Shelton then took aim again and attempted the same with Corbin only for him to move and Corbin would throw him over the top rope! Shelton would look to be eliminated however he would defy the odds, holding onto the top rope and getting his composure on the ring apron. Corbin would then charge at Shelton but Benjamin would kick Corbin in the head knocking him back down. Shelton would then leap up onto the ring apron and launch himself back into the ring but he would land directly in trouble as Braun would catch him and swipe him out of the air before throwing him over the top rope with such force that Shelton would land on the bottom tip of the ramp way.


    (Rusev eliminated by Shelton Benjamin) & (Shelton Benjamin eliminated by Braun Strowman)


    Braun would let out another roar as the commentary team put over his domination in this match. Kane though would be back up and would confront the monster among men. Kane and Braun would stare at the each other before trading right hands as they edged closer to the ring ropes. Kane would strike with viscous uppercuts before charging at Braun with a clothesline and to the shock of the crowd, both men would go tumbling over the top rope and fall to their feet on the floor and continue fighting as the crowd are in shock. "JR" screams that the Big Red Machine and the Monster among men are eliminated and neither seems to care! Braun and Kane continue fighting as the Referee's at ringside try and break them up. Kane and Braun continue trading right hands all the way up the ramp and to the back of gorilla as the action in the ring continues.


    (Braun & Kane both eliminated)

    Bray Wyatt is the most in shock as he watched his black sheep and Kane tumble over the top rope and eliminated. "JR" says Bray's insurance policy has gone and the eater of worlds is on his own. The match then takes shape as Bray picks a corner and watches on. Baron Corbin is up and flexing as he paces back in the ring. On the other side the big Texan- Mark Henry is up and the crowd are behind him. Jericho and Owens then re-enter the match and the stage is set as the commentary team says we are down to our last five men and ask who's going to SummerSlam?! Suddenly Corbin, Bray and Y2KO turn at the same time to Mark Henry and the situation becomes clear as they rush the final big man in the match with various strikes and punches. Henry though explodes and knock's everyone off before picking them off with clothesline's and shoulder tackles. Henry would grab Jericho and would land the WORLDS STRONGEST SLAM!! Henry would then do the same to Wyatt and Kevin Owens as the crowd cheered for this rejuvenated Mark Henry. Henry would then look at the lone wolf but Corbin would strike first with a big boot and knock Henry against the ropes. Corbin would then slap Henry across the face and run at him with a forearm only for Henry to back body drop him over the top rope as the crowd popped for the elimination of Baron Corbin!


    (Baron Corbin eliminated by Mark Henry)


    Mark Henry would smile as he enjoyed eliminating his rival- Baron Corbin. He would turn around and watch Baron throw a fit on the outside as he pushed and shoved over Referee's. Henry's attention though would be away from the match and it would be his downfall as Bray, Owens and Jericho would rush him again, this time hooking his legs and lifting the big man over the top rope as his balance was off and he tumbled to the outside as the crowd would boo. However the real shock that caused the crowd to go crazy would be Kevin Owen's gripping the tights of Chris Jericho and launching him over the top rope as the Texas crowd gasped. Owens would then step back behind Bray who watched on as Jericho fell to his feet and looked up at the culprit. Owens pointed to Bray as Wyatt just looked- wondering what's going on. Jericho on the outside is stunned and ask's Kevin what the hell happened? Owens points to Bray again and says "I will avenge you, Chris!" as the crowd begin to laugh. Booker says that Owen's just eliminated his best friend and pinned the blame on Bray Wyatt! "JBL" says that when it comes to the World Heavyweight Championship, there is no such thing as friend's. "JR" says we are down to two men! Bray Wyatt and Kevin Owens!


    (Mark Henry eliminated by Jericho, Bray & Owens) & (Chris Jericho eliminated by Kevin Owens)


    Owens and Jericho would pace around the ring before locking up as the crowd were mixed for both. Owens and Bray went through their arsenal of moves and teased each others elimination a few times, both men coming close. Bray and Owens would be battling near the ropes when out of nowhere- the crowd popped like mad and Heath Slater would appear from under the ring with a smile on his face and would slither in the ring as everyone had forgot about Slater. Slater would run at Bray and Owens with force and would clothesline both over the top rope and the crowd popped like crazy as Bray and Owen's were elimi- NOOOO! Bray and Owen's are both holding the top rope and are teetering. Heath think's he's won and is celebrating in the ring. Slater drops to his knee's and almost begins to tear up, assuming he's going to SummerSlam and will have a job! It's not to be though and it's Owens then enters first and he is pissed. Owen's rushes Slater with a forearm to the back of Heath's head and knocks him down before kicking him repeatedly. "KO" then throws Slater into the ropes and look's for the POP-IP POWER-BOMB but Heath reverse with a hurricarna attempt as Owen's holds on and we are now in a position where Heath is dangling over the top rope and has Owen's locked by his head with his legs. It's Bray's opportunity and he enters the ring, sliding between the ropes and grabs Owen's by the legs and throws him over the top ropes as Heath goes with him and both go crashing to the floor on the outside!


    (Heath Slater & Kevin Owen's eliminated by Bray Wyatt)


    Spoiler:

    WINNER: BRAY WYATT!!


    Bray drops to his knee's and begins to laugh and smile as the crowd are split- some cheering and some booing as the commentary team hype up the victory and that Bray Wyatt is going to SummerSlam to compete for the World Heavyweight Championship! Owens on the outside is furious as he kicks the steps and blames Heath Slater for costing him his chance. The Titantron is now also live and backstage we see Kane and Braun still fighting as they knock down equipment and destroy everything in their path. Officials, Referee's and backstage workers are trying to break them up with nobody really wanting to get close to these two monsters. The live footage switches back to ringside and we get one final shot of Bray in the ring as he takes in his moment before "JR" thanks the WWE Universe for tuning in tonight and ask's that we tune into the hottest party of the summer, SummerSlam!

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

    Summerslam Kick-Off Show

    We head over to the kick-off show panel, as Renee Young, Charly Caruso, Jerry Lawler & Lita are all sitting down! Renee Young hypes up how the card for tonight's Summerslam has shaped up brilliantly.

    But we will kick things off with the first match on the kick-show. Renee says that the first match tonight to start things off on the kick off show will be a 12 Man Tag Team featuring 12 of Raw's superstars! Each men and team has a point to prove in this bout, and we will see who can gain some momentum on the Hottest Party of the Summer to take to Monday Night Raw.


    We head back to the Barclays Center, as members of the crowd are fired up for the kick-off show match. The team of babyfaces come out first- as Dolph Ziggler's music hits! Ziggler makes his way to the ring to a huge pop from the crowd. After that, Titus O'Neil's music hit! The CEO of Titus Worldwide came out to a light pop. He was followed by Golden Truth- who came out to a minuscule pop as well. And finally, it was none other than The Usos who came out next! The Usos came out with different attires than usual, wearing street clothes and snapbacks. All the faces welcomed each other to the ring as they waited for the opponents.

    Tyler Breeze's music hit- as Breeze came out wearing police gear. He did his usual entrance with the selfie stick, which was followed by Fandango's entrance-as the two men were billed as The Fashion Police! Up next, it was Sheamus' music that hit- as the lights went out, and Sheamus made his entrance. Ryback's music hit next as The Big Guy came out to boos. And finally, the lights went out once more- as it was The Ascension that came out! The opponents all entered the ring- as the two teams would stand on separate sides, and the referee would call for the bell.


    Kick-Off Show Match: Ryback, Sheamus, The Fashion Police & The Ascension vs. Golden Truth, Titus O'Neil, Dolph Ziggler & The Usos

    Finish:
    This was an exciting and explosive match as each man got a chance to shine. There were plenty of different highlights in the match. Firstly, one moment saw Jey Uso & Ryback as the legal men- and The Usos nailed Ryback with a Double Superkick, followed by a Superfly Splash from Jey Uso. Jey Uso went for the cover, but Ryback powered out of the cover by pushing Jey Uso away- as The Usos' frustration at not getting a win continued.

    Another moment saw Titus O'Neil & Sheamus brawl, leading to Titus O'Neil nailing Sheamus with Clash of the Titus outside the ring to a huge pop. The Ascension, Ryback & Sheamus were creeped out by The Fashion Police's mannerisms. There was a lot of tension brewing on the face teams, as Goldust & R-Truth had many disagreements.

    The finish of the match comes when Ziggler & Viktor are the legal men. The only men on the apron are Konnor on the heel side, and Truth & Goldust on the face side. Ziggler & Viktor are on the ground, as both men attempt to tag their team mates in. Goldust reaches his hand out, only for Truth to do the same- and Ziggler tags in Truth- which leads Goldust bursts into a fit of anger, seeing that Ziggler tagged in Truth, and not him.

    Truth enters the ring, and he prevents Viktor from making the tag- only for Goldust to enter the ring. Goldust grabs Truth- and the two men argue as Goldust felt he should be the legal man, which only leads to Viktor making the tag to Konnor! As Goldust & Truth continue to argue, it leads to Viktor regrouping- and The Ascension hit Truth with a Fall of Man! Sheamus & Ryback enter the ring- and they knock Ziggler off the apron before throwing Truth over the top rope- which leads to Konnor covering Truth, and getting the win!


    WINNERS:
    RYBACK, SHEAMUS, THE FASHION POLICE & THE ASCENSION

    After the match, the heels stood tall in the ring- and had their hands raised by the referee. The Usos were absolutely fuming over the loss, and there was a huge argument between the babyfaces- and The Usos walked away in anger. This left Truth and Goldust having a dispute, only for Goldust to push Truth- as Ziggler attempted intervene afterwards to stop the tension. Goldust walked away afterwards in anger as Truth followed after him.

    We headed back to the pre-show panel, as we all four of the panellists speak about the following matches, and giving their predictions for the card. Renee closed the pre-show off by thanking everyone all for watching, and it's now time for the main show!







    The show begins with a video package, as we see a glimpse of all the beautiful sights and surroundings in Brookyln!

Booker T then talks, as the Smackdown Live side of this PPV event features many talent who could lead Smackdown into the new era. JBL agrees, as the Smackdown Live line-up is stacked- and this PPV is going to be absolutely amazing.

    JOJO: This match is scheduled for one fall- and it is for the United States Championship! Introducing first, the challenger! From Long Island, New York! The Long Island Iced-Z! ZACK RYYYDDEERRRRR!

    RADIO!!

    The crowd pop like crazy for the ultimate broski as Ryder bounces out from behind the curtain and onto the stage. His face full of excitement and adrenaline running through his veins. Ryder poses for the crowd and throws up his hands before yelling "Woo Woo Woo!" as the crowd join in too. Ryder then makes his way down the ramp, slapping hands with the crowd before entering the ring and awaiting his opponent.

    JOJO:
    And his opponent, the Champion! Hailing from Bulgaria via Moscow, Russia! And accompanied by the Ravishing Russian, Lana! He is the WWE United States Champion! The Bulgarian Brute! RUUUSEEEVVVV!

    ROAR OF THE LION!!

    The boo's rain down heavy on the United States Champion as he steps out onto the stage being accompanied by his wife and valet- Lana! The two pose for the crowd, ignorance is bliss as Lana stands with a smirk across her face as the Bulgarian Brute poses with his US Championship in the air as he taunts Ryder in the ring. Rusev then begins making his way down the ramp before entering the ring as Lana takes her place at ringside.

    The commentary team then begin to speculate on the match outcome. Booker says that Ryder came so close at Night of Champions and he's been impressive on Smackdown Live- beating Chris Jericho recently! Book says that tonight is Ryder's night and we are going to get a US Champion to make the people proud. "JBL" shoots down Booker and says that America already has a US Champion to be proud off and that's the Bulgarian Brute- Ruuuseeevvv! "JBL" says that Ryder is nothing more then a mark with a dream and tonight his dreams are about to be crushed once more! "JR" says that if matches were worn on heart and desire, not many would compare to the gutsy Ryder and he will give it everything once again tonight. "JR" says that the reality is, Lana could once again be the dividing factor and Ryder will have to be careful.



    Match One: US Championship Match - Rusev (C) W/ Lana vs Zack Ryder.

    Finish: The match started really well for the challenger with the crowd firmly behind him and him riding the wave of their support and going on the attack. Rusev seemed stunned and couldn't cope with the explosive and energetic start from Ryder and it didn't take long for the mind games and underhanded tactics to begin. Rusev would be knocked down by Ryders third consecutive drop kick and would roll out of the ring. Rusev would throw a strop before throwing up his hands and telling his wife to grab his US Championship because we are leaving. Lana runs around to the time keepers area. grabs the strap and they attempt to leave. The crowd are booing loudly and Ryder is shaking his head in disbelief. The Referee reaches the count of Six and Zack has enough! He exits the ring and chases the Champ up the ramp, attacking him with a forearm strike to the back of the Champions head and knocks him down. Ryder then grabs back up Rusev and punches him down the ramp, step by step as the crowd cheered each one like a home run!

    Zack Ryder then swings Rusev hard into the ring apron before following up with a clothesline that knocks the bigger man down on the outside. The crowd again cheer, they're right behind the challenger and Ryder is living for the moment and continues to take the match to the Bulgarian Brute. Ryder breaks up the Referee's count at Nine before exiting the ring once more to restart it as the Referee urges Ryder and Rusev to get the action back in the ring. Ryder then drags up Rusev and swings him hard into the crowd barrier as it again draws another cheer from the Brooklyn crowd. "JR" highlights how Ryder has started this match so physically and the crowd are right behind him! He says that at the moment- Rusev can't seem to live with the pressure! "JBL" tries to spur on Rusev and says that he has to agree, he's never seen Ryder so aggressive.

    Rusev pleads for Ryder to show mercy on the outside as he's draped over the crowd barrier. Ryder pauses for a moment before delivering right hand strikes. One after the other. Ryder then swings Rusev into the ring and looks to follow him but as he attempts to slide in- Lana grabs his boot and it's just the opening that Rusev needed. Ryder after a second or so shakes off Lana and enters the ring but at this point Rusev was ready and would smash Ryder in the face with the..




    ..MACHKA KICK!! Shouted "JBL" as the crowd are stunned into silence! "JR" says that Ryder just got his bell rung off the Lana distraction and this match could be over! Rusev has a smirk on his face and he begins to laugh as Ryder is down and seemingly out. Rusev drops on top of Ryder and begins to count along with the Referee as Lana is already celebrating on the outside. One! Two! Thre- NOOOOO! The crowd cheer as Ryder throws up a shoulder and the Referee calls a two count! Rusev's eyes are wide and he stares at the Referee while Lana on the outside is slapping the ring apron in frustration and yells for Rusev to do it again! Rusev stands back up and shouts at the Referee before demanding that Ryder get up.

    Ryder after a few seconds longer would stumble up and Rusev would explode into live with another kick! MACHKA KICK!!! NOOOOOOO! Ryder moved out of the way and rolled up the Bulgarian Brute with a small package as the Referee scurried across the ring and began to count the attempted pin! One! Two! Thre-NOOO! Rusev would kick out at the last second and would jump to his feet in absolute shock as Ryder would roll out of the ring to compose himself. Rusev though was already cutting a frustrated figure as he grabbed the Referee by the shirt and would receive a warning. Lana on the outside was panicked too. She like most of the crowd thought the match was over twice and it rolls on. Lana would leap on the ring apron and would try to calm her husband down and get him to concentrate. The two would embrace as the crowd would Boo and Lana would point to her wedding ring before yelling "He's the only man for me!" as Rusev would smile and taunt the Brooklyn crowd.

    Rusev would then exit the ring and would beat down on Ryder who was holding his chin- feeling the effects of the kick from the US Champ. The Bulgarian would beat down on Zack with forearms and head butt's before lifting him up and dropping him on top of the barricade as the crowd gasped in the front row. Rusev would then drag up Ryder and would do so one more time before breaking up the Referee's count out attempt. The Bulgarian would then drag up a lifeless Ryder and would swing him into the ring before following closely behind. With the action returning to the ring- Rusev would watch on as Ryder tried to get back up. Every time Ryder would reach his feet- Rusev would knock him down with a forearm or shoulder charge before mocking him and asking the fans if this is who they want as their US Champion? The crowd respond by chanting Ryder's name and it works, inspiring Zack to block a strike from Rusev before unleashing a flurry of combo's and then running the ropes and nailing the Bulgarian with an inch perfect dropkick in the middle of the ring. Ryder then crawls back across the ring and attempts to drape his arm across the US Champion but he's already on the rise and the race is on to see who will reach their feet first and take advantage.

    Rusev and Ryder are both up and they begin to trade punches in the centre of the ring as Booker says we've got ourselves a hockey fight and the crowd chant along. Ryder gets the better and he's swinging- each one knocking Rusev back and then eventually drives him into the turnbuckle with his shoulder. Ryder then steps back before running and leaping with a stinger like splash and the crowd are cheering in support. Ryder then senses this could be his chance and throws his first in the air and begins to pump it as Rusev slouches down into a seated position in the turnbuckle corner..



    ...WOO! WOO! WOO! BROSKI BOOT!! shouts Booker T as he says this is the opening that Ryder needed. He has to take advantage! Ryder knows it and the crowd are fully behind him. Ryder is jumping on the balls of his feet and shouting for Rusev to get up! He lines him up and when Rusev finally rises, he runs at him and leaps up with the.. ROUGH RYD- NOOOOOOOO! Rusev using his strength to catch Ryder and throw him over his head and out of the ring over the ring ropes in a nasty looking landing as Ryder lands very awkwardly holding his back and rolling around in agony as the crowd gasp, perhaps knowing that Ryder is potentially seriously hurt and may have just blown his big chance in the match.

    Rusev has a smirk on his face, he knows he's dodged a bullet and proceeds to demand that the Referee speeds up his count out attempt. Rusev then begins to mock Ryder by taunting him with his own "Woo! Woo! Woo!" gesture before telling the crowd that the match is over and he could be right. Ryder is in pain and attempts to stand only to fall back down and the Referee's count is at 6. Ryder is now crawling to the ring apron, edging closer and closer and begins to pull himself up. 7! 8! Rusev begins to panic and is shouting for the Referee to hurry up and count! 9! Ryder is on the apron and Rusev is shaking his head. 10! "JBL" Says it's over but the Referee says that Ryder made the count as the crowd pop. Rusev though is furious and accuses the Referee of helping Zack Ryder before the Bulgarian totally loses it and begins to stomp and beat down on Ryder with sheer venom and anger running through his veins.

    Lana then stands on the ring apron and the crowd know what's about to come.. She stands with a smile on her face before gesturing and shouting.. "CRRRUUSSSSHHH!" Pointing to Ryder as Rusev nods his head in acknowledgement and then stomps on the back of Ryder and looks to take his seated position. Ryder though will not quit and crawls backwards before leaping up and taking a page out of Zigglers book and hits a Zig-Zag like move out of nowhere and the crowd are cheering once more. They want Ryder to win the match badly and more importantly they don't want Rusev as their United States Champion. Ryder then covers! One! Two! KICK OUT! "JBL" Stresses how close Ryder was to pinning Rusev and that he's getting so desperate that he's now stealing someones else's finishing move. "JR" says that desperation, passion and desire, call it what you want too but Ryder wants this moment, he needs this moment and he's going to do what it takes to win that US Championship! Booker then chimes in and ask's at what cost though Ross? He says that Ryder is in clear agony as he continuous to wince and hold his back in pain.

    Ryder though again lines up his finishing move. Again demanding Rusev to get up. The Bulgarian Brute eventually stands back up and when he does..



    ..ROUGH RYDER! The crowd explode as Jim Ross shouts COME ON KID, THIS IS YOUR CHANCE!! Ryder is in agony and is holding his back as he see's Rusev down and out. He crawls, scratching and clawing across the ring as the crowd are willing him on. Step by step. Lana on the outside is pacing back and forth, shouting at her husband to get up and is warning him that Ryder is coming but Rusev is out.. He's motionless on the canvas. Ryder reaches Rusev and throws his arm over the lifeless United States Champion and the count is on! One! Two! OHHHH THAT DAMN JEZEBEL, WHAT IS SHE DOING?! Shouts Jim Ross as Lana has rolled into the ring and attempted to break up the pin but the Referee would stop his count and cut her off- telling her she needs to get out of the ring and the Brooklyn crowd are pissed. Hurling abuse at Lana who has just saved her husband's Championship. Ryder can't believe it.. He's rubbing his face and now sat up. He tells the Referee that he had the match won and he did.. Ryder would be the new US Champion had it not been for Lana and the crowd know it.

    Ryder is gutted, you can see it in his face but he understands the Referee having to stop Lana otherwise the match would have been over due to DQ. Ryder attempts to stand up and falls to one knee. His back is hurting bad and starting to stiffen up. This is the opening that Rusev would need as he would spring up off his knees and would smash Ryder in the face! MACHKA KICK! THE SECOND MACHKA KICK OF THE MATCH! Rusev nailed Ryder clean with the kick to the jaw and Ryder was out. Rusev would then flip over Ryder and would stomp on his back.. Not once! Not twice! Three times! Rusev would then lock in his finisher..



    ACCOLADE! RUSEV WITH THE ACCOLADE! IT'S OVER! Shouted "JBL" and he was correct. The crowd's energy was gone and Ryder was motionless. He couldn't even fight it and the pain was too much. Booker would stress how Ryder's dreams of becoming the US Champion have faded and he was not wrong. Ryder faded and could not answer the Referee's response as he lifted his limp arm twice before calling for the end of the match on the third one as it fell to the canvas. Rusev has retained the United States Championship!!

    JOJO: YOUR WINNER AND STILL US CHAMPION... RUSEV!!!

    DING! DING! DING! The bell is sounding to end the match and the Referee has signalled it's over but Rusev refuses to break the hold and the crowd rain down their hate and jeers to the Champ who sits on top of Ryder with a smile on his face. Eventually with a couple more officials coming down- Rusev releases the hold and celebrates in the ring by pumping his chest and shouting that he's the GREATEST UNITED STATES CHAMPION OF ALL TIME!!

    "JR" reminds us that Lana saved Rusev tonight and that without his wife- we would have had a new US Champion! "JBL" says that conspiracy stories are not needed and the fact remains that Rusev is the still the United States Champion and could very well be the greatest US Champion of all time!! Booker totally disagree's and says that he feels for Ryder tonight because he gave it everything and sadly, it's not to be. "JR" says that Ryder will come again because he loves this business but speculates how bad his back injury could be?

    Rusev exits the ring holding his Championship in the air with his wife at his side. Back in the ring and the officials have surrounded Ryder and are trying to help him up as we head backstage.


    Shane and Stephanie McMahon are shown watching the live footage and the ending to the Ryder and Rusev United States Championship match on a nearby Tv monitor as Shane as a smile on his face and speaks.

    SHANE MCMAHON:
    What about that huh, Steph? Now that my Sister is how you kick off the hottest party of the summer- Summerslam! A United States Championship match! Ryder giving it everything but sadly not able to overcome the dominant Bulgarian Brute, Rusev! Great match! You know Steph, I feel for any Raw superstars that have to go and follow that. Good luck!

    Shane says with a smile across his face, clearly quite smug at how well the show started with a Smackdown Live match and is enjoying the moment. Stephanie though is defiant and smiles before replying.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON:
    Well Shane, I will admit- whilst the Rusev vs. Ryder match was great, I highly doubt that it'll be better than the match we have lined up for the Intercontinental Championship. I mean, Cesaro vs. The Miz in a Last Chance match? Where the winner won't receive another shot at the Intercontinental Championship? The stakes don't get much higher than that.

    Shane nods his head and smiles before replying.

    SHANE MCMAHON:
    I'll admit, I can't wait to see that match myself, Stephanie. However, I can't help but wonder that if Cesaro would have been on my brand- the Blue brand- Smackdown Live! He might have very well been in the World Heavyweight Championship Match tonight! I mean we both know what our Father thinks of Cesaro and it wouldn't surprise me if you see him as the same. As for the Miz, I'll admit, He's carried the IC Championship well but you want to talk about a real champion? How about the Queen! WWE Women's Champion! Charlotte Flair! She goes on on one tonight against Natalya in a rivalry for the ages! Now that's going to be epic!

    Stephanie has a very smug look on her face, as she responds.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON:
    The number one draft pick for Smackdown Live in Charlotte defending the Womens Championship against Natalya? I have to agree with you Shane- that really is a rivalry for the ages, but the Raw's Womens match where we will crown our FIRST ever Raw Womens Championship will also be a moment for the ages. We're GUARANTEED to have a new champion, could it be Sasha Banks to finally achieve her dreams? Or could we see the underdog in Alexa Bliss gain the win tonight? Or will Summerslam be the night of All... Red... Everything?

    Stephanie smirks as Shane nods his head and holds up his hands, clearly impressed with the match before replying.

    SHANE MCMAHON:
    First ever Raw Women's Champion crowned tonight.. wow, that is huge! So many talented women in the match and I'm excited, I can't call it. Though, Summerslam being the night of All Red? I don't think so Sister because tonight is the night that Smackdown arrives on the scene- team Blue and we're going to steal the show tonight! You see, you talk about NEW CHAMPIONS.. Well tonight we crown a WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! Who's going to follow in the footsteps of legends?! Who's going to make history?! Will it be someone you know very well in Seth Rollins- will the MAN return tonight? Will it be the Demon King- Fin Balor?! Or how about the Eater of Worlds, Bray Wyatt! Then again.. Maybe it will be two people who never got a single chance on Raw in Apollo Crews and Neville?! I guess we will see! I can't wait! I'm excited!

    Stephanie doesn't look too bothered, as she continues.

    STEPHANIE MCMAHON: That's very interesting, I mean- a new World Heavyweight Champion ready to be crowned? That's good and all, but that's nothing compared to the rivalry between two BROTHERS- Dean Ambrose vs. Roman Reigns. They came out of The Shield, and those two brothers will face each other tonight in what is a highly anticipated match with the WWE Championship on the line. They're going to tear each other apart, and that's how I know, for sure, that Summerslam is going to be the night where Raw shines.

    Shane & Stephanie then engage in a friendly stareoff, as the siblings look very confident- and they clearly have faith in their brands.


    The cameras cut to the Raw commentary table, as Cole says that the competitiveness between the Raw & Smackdown brands has just got even more higher! Ranallo says that this is absolutely great to see, and it goes to show how both brands will be willing to put on the greatest matches tonight- just like we saw with Smackdown, and how Rusev defeated a gutsy Zack Ryder to retain his title. Graves moves on, and he says that it's now time for the first match on the Raw side of the PPV- as we will witness the debut of Austin Aries! He will go one on one with none other than Raw's underdog, Sami Zayn!

    JOJO: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Montreal, Quebec in Canada... he is The Underdog From The Underground... SAMI ZAYYYYYN!

    WORLD'S APART

    Brooklyn begins to cheer loudly for the arrival of Sami Zayn- as Zayn shuffles and dances on his way to the ring with a huge smile on his face. Zayn enters the ring. The fans continue to cheer Zayn, as he shuffles whilst he's in the ring too. Zayn's music stops, and the New York crowd begin to hum along to Zayn's theme music despite it stopping as Zayn looks satisfied with the reaction- and he waits for his opponent.

    JOJO: And his opponent, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, making his WWE PPV debut from NXT... he is The Greatest Man That Ever Lived... AUSTIN ARIIIIIIES!!

    AMBITION AND VISION

    The lights go out, as the fans begin to cheer in anticipation for A-Dub! An Austin Aries graphic appears on the TitanTron, with multiple spotlights on the stage... and out comes Austin Aries to a big pop from the fans! Aries makes his way to the ring with nothing but confidence as Zayn looks on in approval, and Aries is wearing a black & blue cape. Aries looks at members of the audience, and they put their hands out for Aries to slap- but Aries ignores them, as he's solely focused on his opponent. Graves says that Aries is making his presence with a cocky manner- but after all, he is The Greatest Man That Ever Lived! Aries enters the ring- as he poses on the turnbuckle, and his music stops.

    Cole talks about how Sami Zayn was frustrated at not being booked for Summerslam- but he was given an opportunity by Daniel Bryan to compete at The Hottest Party of the Summer! Ranallo then reminds us how Aries had faced No Way Jose last night at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn II- as he had defeated him, and now? He's making his Summerslam debut. Graves says that the two men have history from their independent days, and they aren't strangers to each other at all.

    The fans begin to cheer at the sight of Sami Zayn & Austin Aries in the same ring, as Zayn looks pleased for his opponent. Zayn walks up to Aries, and he extends his hand for Aries to shake as the fans cheer. Aries looks on in approval- as Zayn is looking to continue that code of respect and honour due to both men's past! Aries nods at Zayn in approval as he looks cool with the idea of shaking Zayn's hand... before taking off his cape... and THROWING it in Zayn's face! Aries heads back to the corner as the fans boo, with Zayn throwing the cape outside the ring- feeling completely disrespected by his opponent's reaction, as the two men stand on different sides and the bell rings!



    Match Two: Austin Aries vs. Sami Zayn

    Finish:
    The match kicked off with excitement as the two men exploded with a flurry of shots to the face of each other- with Zayn clearly annoyed due to Aries' cocky attitude. As the match went on, it was very back and forth between the two men. The two men were doing their best to win the match, but there were many moments of Aries taunting Zayn with annoying gestures such as posing whilst laying down in the ring, and mocking the shuffling that Zayn does in his entrance. The two men have been very technical in the ring, as well as Zayn using his aerial threats in the match.

    Back to the action- the two men continue go head to head as Zayn is in control. Aries is getting back up as Zayn charges at Aries with an immediate Flying Clothesline... but Aries manages to reverse it into a Japanese Arm Drag as he sends Zayn onto the canvas! Zayn is on the floor, as Aries immediately gets back up- and he shouts 'OLE!' to the crowd, as they begin to respond with mixed reactions, as Ranallo points out how Aries has continuously been mocking Zayn throughout this match. Aries turns back around, as he grabs a handful of Zayn's hair and he picks him back up.

    Aries continues with his offence as he nails a chop to the mid-section of Zayn- which leads to Zayn wincing in pain, as Graves says that chop could be heard all around the world! This leads to Zayn turning back around as Aries immediately goes for a Pendulum Backbreaker... AND HE CONNECTS! Aries is in full control as he runs to the other side, and he rebounds off the ropes before going for an Elbow Drop with nothing but absolute force to the face of The Underdog From The Underground...

    But Zayn moves out of the way as Aries misses and nails the canvas instead! The fans are fully behind Zayn as Zayn slowly gets up- and he waits for his opponent to get back up as he does so, and Aries turns around... DROPKICK FROM ZAYN!! And the fans go nuts as Aries goes over the top rope! Zayn begins to hype himself up, and Brooklyn begins to chant 'OLE!' as Graves says that Zayn is looking to fly again! Sami runs from one side to another before jumping out of the ring towards Aries...



    SOMERSAULT PLANCHA!!! Brooklyn ERUPTS with cheers as Zayn connects, and the two men go down! Cole says that Sami Zayn thrives from being in the air- and this could be a problem for A-Dub! On the other hand, Zayn immediately gets back up- as he looks to the crowd, and he shouts 'OLE!' himself in response to the earlier chants. Zayn grabs Aries, and he picks him up before placing him back into the ring. Zayn goes for the cover as the referee begins to count... 1! 2! 3-BUT ARIES KICKS OUT!! Graves states that there is no way Aries is going to let himself get beat in his PPV debut match.

    Zayn looks towards the referee, and he nods in approval as he understands that he's gotta do a hell lot more to overcome his opponent. Zayn gets back up to his feet, knowing what is next in his sleeve... and he goes for a Standing Moonsault to a huge ovation from the fans... BUT ARIES USES HIS KNEES TO PREVENT THE MOVE!! And Zayn lands hard on his mid-section due to Aries' block, as Aries gets back up straight away. Aries touches his head as he's clearly in pain, but that doesn't stop him from dragging Zayn over to the ropes.

    Aries picks Zayn up, before Aries goes over the top rope as he stands on the apron, and he grabs Zayn's head before draping it over the second rope... he looks towards the fans- and shouts 'I'M THE GREATEST MAN THAT EVER LIVED!' to a mixed reaction from the fans... BEFORE NAILING A NECK SNAP TO SAMI ZAYN!! Aries jumps out of the ring following that move as Zayn lands on his back- and Aries quickly climbs up the turnbuckle in the corner as he looks to take advantage. Ranallo says that Aries is looking to go aerial as well- and Aries launches off the top rope with a 450 Splash...

    But Zayn moves out of the way!!! Luckily for Aries, Aries manages to land on his feet to prevent any damage as the fans chant 'SAMI ZAYN!' repeatedly. Zayn looks to capitalize as he grabs Aries' head and looks to set him up for a DDT... but as Zayn looks to hit it- Aries does his best to wriggle out of the move and he eventually does so! Aries runs over to the corner to regroup as Zayn shortly turns around after that- and Aries charges at Zayn with a Discus Elbow Smash... but Zayn sees it coming as he grabs hold of Aries' elbow and drapes it over his head onto his shoulder...



    EXPLODER SUPLEX INTO THE CORNER!!! The fans go nuts as Ranallo says that this could be over! However, Zayn begins to look to the crowd- as Aries looks to slowly get back up to his feet. Zayn begins to hype himself up as he motions for Aries to look up- and Ranallo says that Zayn is looking to finish this off! Aries eventually gets back up to his feet, as Zayn charges at Aries with a Helluva Kick... BUT ARIES MOVES OUT OF THE WAY!! And Zayn kicks the turnbuckle instead as it goes flying- and Cole states that Aries had clearly loosened the top turnbuckle whilst he was getting up- as Aries uses his smart tactics in the ring yet again. Graves talks about how the two men know each other so well, which is why we have seen all these counters and foiled attempts of these moves which would have a big impact on the match.

    With the referee distracted... Aries anticipates for Zayn to turn around as he does so... AND ARIES POKES ZAYN IN THE EYE!! The fans boo loudly as Zayn has walked straight into an eye rake with the referee focusing on getting the broken turnbuckle out of the ring- and Aries grabs hold of Zayn's arm before placing it over his shoulder- and he lifts Zayn up into the air with ill intentions...



    BRAINBUSTER TO SAMI ZAYN!!!!! Graves goes absolutely nuts- and he says that we have seen that move in the WWE for a LONG time. Zayn crashes head-first onto the canvas as the fans respond with a mixed reaction, but mostly boos as Cole says that he thinks this is over! Aries immediately goes for the cover and the referee counts... 1.... 2... 3!!! AND ARIES WINS HIS PPV DEBUT MATCH!!

    JOJO: AND THE WINNER IS... AUSTIN ARIES!!

    Aries' music hits on the PA system as the fans begin to boo The Greatest Man That Ever Lived- and Aries begins to bow to the fans. He looks down at Zayn, and he bows to him as well in a manner full of disrespect before heading to the back whilst celebrating to himself, and laughing at members of the crowd.

    Sami Zayn is slowly getting back up to his feet, as the referee helps The Underdog From The Underground get back up. But as soon as Zayn gets up- he immediately begins to argue with the ref, and he points at his own eye as he's clearly telling the ref that Aries had poked him, but the ref isn't having any of it as he clearly didn't see it.
    Zayn nods in disapproval as Cole says that he doesn't think this is over at all! But despite all of Aries' arrogant displays, he still managed to make an impact here tonight in his first ever match on Summerslam! Graves says that Aries has won two matches in two nights now, and he heads into the main roster with such great momentum. Ranallo says that he feels this match could've gone differently, had Aries not poked Sami in the eye- but you can't count out Sami's performance as he gave Aries one hell of a match here tonight. Ranallo moves on, and he states that we're going to see a preview of Raw's first PPV event- Armageddon!

    The dust has settled on the entertaining Aries vs Zayn match as the live camera reverts back to the Smackdown Live commentary team. "Welcome to the WWE, Mr Austin Aries!" says Jim Ross as he puts over the match and says that despite the methods and the questionable attitude from Austin, he's earned this opportunity in the major leagues of the WWE. "JBL" agree's and says Raw delivered on their first match of the night but right now it's time for Smackdown's second match of the evening and it's the Tag Team Showcase Match! Booker chimes in and says that four of the best tag team's in the world today have got an opportunity to showcase and shape the future of the Tag Team Division in the WWE and more importantly, they've got a chance to settle their differences! "JR" agree's with Booker and confirms that we've seen some hideous actions from the Bullet Club against the team of Enzo & Big Cass and recently with seen a feud brewing between the future Hall of Famers the Dudley Boyz and the up and coming Revival led by none other then the mastermind of Jim Cornette!

    A quick video package then plays on the Tron and showcases some highlights of the two feuds coming together. It shows Enzo & Big Cass supporting John Cena and the Club members of Anderson & Gallows supporting their leader AJ Styles and how their rivalry began. It shows the promo exchanges before showing the various attacks of the Bullet Club, especially highlighting the attack in which they handcuffed Enzo and laid into Big Cass injuring him. It ends though with the Bullet Club having surrounded Cena last week on Smackdown before Enzo would run down with a steel chair and case away the Club members.

    Next is the turn of the second feud within this match. It starts with the Dudley Boyz calling out the Revival and inviting them to Smackdown Live with the aim of settling who's the best tag team in the world today and if the Revival believe it's them, then they need to go through "dem' damn Dudley Boyz!" It then ends with the surprise attack on the go-home show of Smackdown when Jim Cornette would shock the wrestling world and would appear to confront the Dudley Boyz and announce that he is leading the tag team wrestling Revival and then both Dash and Scott would attack the Dudley Boyz from behind and would leave them laid out of with the Shatter Machine!

    The clip would then end with Shane Mcmahon and Eric Bischoff announcing that at SummerSlam both teams would get the chance to settle their differences and showcase the Tag Team Division as we would see Enzo & Cass team with the Dudley Boyz to face the Bullet Club members of Anderson & Gallows and the Revival.


    We are back live at ringside with the always impressive Jojo ready to announce the match!

    JOJO: Our next match is set for one fall and it's the Tag Team Showcase Match!! Introducing first.. Representing the Bullet Club!! They are "Machine Gun" Karl Anderson and Luke "Doc" Gallows!!

    SHOT'EM!!

    A mixed response sounds for Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows as they come out to the ring in full Bullet Club attire resembling their days in New Japan Pro Wrestling. Gallows & Anderson throw up the "2-Sweet!" sign as some of the crowd begin to chant "2-Sweet! 2-Sweet!" in their direction. The duo then make their way down to ringside before entering the ring and awaiting their match partners.

    JOJO: And their partners! Being accompanied to the ring by their manager and wrestling revival visionary! Jim Cornette! They are the team of Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder!! THE REEEVVIIVVAAALLLLLLL!

    SOUTHERN PROUD!!

    Boo's are heard as Jim Cornette leads out the Revival with his famous tennis racket in hand and grin across his face. Dawson & Wilder then step in front and hit their pose before all three men come marching down the ramp and enter the ring looking like they mean business tonight.

    JOJO: And their opponents! Introducing first.. They are the Realist Guys in the Room! ENZZOOO AMOOREEE AND BIG CAASSSSS!!

    SAWFT IS A SIN!!

    The crowd give a big pop for the Realist Guys in the Room as Enzo Amore comes shuffling out from behind the curtain and Big Cass follows him out. Big Cass is taped up from the attack by Bullet Club two weeks ago but he seems intent on enjoying the moment as he riles up the crowd to taunt louder. Enzo goes through his pre-match as the Brooklyn crowd join in with every word before Big Cass tells us that there is only one word to describe the Bullet and Revival... S! A! W! F! T! SSSAAAAAWWWWWFFFTTTTTTT!

    JOJO: And their tag team partners! They're the team of Dvon and Bubba Ray Dudley! The most decorated tag team in WWE history! They are the DUDDLEEEYYY BOOYYYYZZZZ!!

    WE'RE COMIN' DOWN!!!

    Brooklyn explodes as the pyro hits the stage and the theme of the Dudley Boyz's plays through the speakers. Dvon and Bubba then burst out from behind the curtain and on to the stage as the crowd cheers go up a couple more decimals with excitement. Dvon and Bubba bump first's with Enzo and Cass before the four men make there way down the ramp, slide into the ring and go face to face with the Bullet Club and Revival.



    Match Three: Enzo, Big Cass & The Dudleys vs The Revival & Bullet Club (Anderson & Gallows)

    Finish: The match clock ticked around the 8-10 minute mark and all four teams have done their upmost to highlight the Smackdown tag team division and more importantly have looked to settle the score with their rivals. False falls and hard hitting tag team action has been plentiful but the added extra in favour of the Revival and Bullet Club seems to be the mastermind Jim Cornette on the outside directing both teams. Currently the Revival have cut off the ring completely and have Enzo Amore beat down in their own corner and are working him over with stomps and punches. The legal Dash Wilder then tags in Karl Anderson who immediately tags in the big man- Luke Gallows. Anderson then swings Gallows in an irish whip and the big man hits a splash on Enzo Amore before then grabbing Amore and swinging him into the direction of Karl Anderson who grips up Enzo and brings him back down to the canvas with a Spine-buster as Gallows then ran the ropes, jumped up and brought down a big leg across the throat of Enzo Amore before covering for the pin!

    One! Two! Enzo would kick out as the crowd cheered. Gallows would then drag up a motionless Enzo and would drive him back first into the turnbuckle. Gallows would then shape up and would hit a combo of punches to the body of Amore before then driving his elbow to the face of Enzo as he fell down slouched in the corner. Gallows would then throw up the "2-Sweet!" as a mixed response followed from the crowd before Gallows would then wait for Enzo to stand back up, using the ropes and then would steam forward with a big boot attempt that would see Amore move out of the way at the last second and the big man- Gallows would be caught up on the turnbuckle and ropes. As Gallows tried to get himself free, Enzo would leap across the ring and Big Cass would come in hot as the crowd cheered.

    TAG IS MADE AND IN COMES BIG CASS! Yelled Jim Ross as Cass would enter the ring and would greet Gallows with a big boot, knocking him down. Both members of the Revival would then rush the ring and both would duck underneath a double clothesline attempt from Cass only for the Dudley Boyz to pull down on the top rope on the opposite side as Wilder and Dawson came tumbling over the top rope to the hard flooring on the outside. Back in the ring and Anderson would attempt to come off the top rope with a double axe-handle only for Enzo to catch him with a big boot knocking him down. Cass would then drag up Enzo and would lift him up in a gorilla press and would throw him over the top rope and he would come crashing down on top of both members of the Revival. Big Cass would then take a moment to taunt with the crowd only for Gallows to blindside him from behind with a forearm strike to the back. Gallows would then swing Cass into the turnbuckle and would then run across the ring and would leap into Cass with a stinger like splash! Gallows would then scoop up Cass and would slam him back to the canvas. Gallows would then take a moment to taunt Big Cass before running the ropes and leaping up with a big elbow drop. Cass would move at the final second and Gallows would crash into the canvas with an elbow drop. Gallows and Cass would then turn towards their respective corners and the race was on.

    The crowd would boo as Gallows tagged in Karl Anderson and Cass would tag in Bubba Ray to a big cheer from the fans. Bubba would enter the ring and would duck underneath a Karl Anderson strike before throwing back with a combination of his own with theatrics before delivering a Bubba Bomb in the centre of the ring! Bubba would then tag in Dvon and they would turn their attention to an incoming Gallows who would look to help out his partner only to run into the..




    ..DUDLEY DEATH DROP!! 3D!!! Shouted Jim Ross. The Brooklyn crowd would explode as Dvon and Bubba Ray would land the 3D on Gallows as he rolled out of the ring. Dvon would then point to the turnbuckle and Bubba would grab the legs of Anderson as Booker T would remind us what goes up, must come down! Dvon would then be set to fly when Jim Cornette would leap up on the ring apron and provide a moment of distraction. The Revival would then rush the ring and would both attack Bubba from behind with forearm strikes, knocking him down. Dvon would then leap in the air and would come crashing down onto both Dawson and Wilder with a double clothesline from the top rope, taking down both men. Dvon would then crawl across the ring and would tag in Enzo Amore who would burst into the ring dancing around as the crowd cheered. Enzo would run the ropes and would knock down both Dash and Scott with forearm strikes before turning his attention to Anderson as the Revival rolled out of the ring.

    Enzo Amore would go to the second rope and would wait for Anderson to stand up. Enzo would then leap from the second rope and would catch Karl Anderson with a drop kick sending him rolling back towards his corner. Enzo wouldn't see it coming but the Referee would acknowledge the tag as Scott Dawson would slap Anderson across the back. As Anderson would stand back up, Enzo would spring of the second rope and would bring Anderson crashing head first to the canvas with the DDG as Brooklyn erupted. Enzo would then attempt to pin Anderson as the Referee broke the news that Karl Anderson was no longer the legal man. Enzo would turn in shock as the Revival were already perched and ready to strike. Enzo would walk right into the..




    ..SHATTER MACHINE!! Shouted "JBL" as Brooklyn boo'd the Revival nailing their finishing move. The Dudley Boyz would try to recover the situation only for Anderson and Gallows to confront them on the outside. The Referee would scramble across the ring as Scott Dawson would cover Enzo Amore and the Referee would begin to count the attempted pin. Cass would slide underneath the ring ropes and would also try to rescue the situation when Jim Cornette would cut him off with the famous tennis racket shot.. CRACK!! Cornette's racket would sting across the back of Cass as the Referee was turned the other way. Dash Wilder would then leap on top of Cass and stop any further attempts as the Referee counted the pin. One! Two! Three!

    JOJO: AND YOUR WINNERS ARE... THE BULLET CLUB & THE REVIVAL!!!

    The two tag teams begin to celebrate in the ring, and the fans begin to jeer loudly! The Bullet Club & The Revival exit the ring, and head to the back whilst Enzo, Cass stir in the ring. Meanwhile, The Dudleyz also stir outside of the ring as they're not happy with the loss. The Bullet Club & The Revival begin to taunt the teams from the stage.



    A KFC commercial begins to play, before we head back to the Smackdown announcers table. JR talks about how the fans aren't happy due to The Bullet Club & The Revival gaining the win over their opponents due to Jim Cornette's shenanigans with the infamous tennis racket! JBL states that the winning team were the ones who were willing to do anything to win their match, and it cost the team of Big Cass, Enzo Amore & The Dudley Boyz! Booker T moves on, and he talks about how up next- we have a huge announcement from Daniel Bryan that will change the future of the WWE. JR says that he wonders what this announcement could be, but whatever it is- it's set to be big!

    FLIGHT OF THE VALKYRIES

    Daniel Bryan's music blasts as Brookyln erupts with a huge pop! Bryan comes out- and he begins to put his fingers in the air with a 'YES!' chant as members of the New York crowd do the chant as well. The entire Barclays Center is lively with the presense of Bryan, as Bryan makes his way to the ring with a mic. Bryan waits for the crowd to calm down, but they shower him with 'YES!' chants. Bryan smiles, before the crowd bursts into a 'Daniel Bryan!' chant, and Bryan speaks.

    DANIEL BRYAN: Brooklyn, New York- what's going on?!

    Huge pop.

    DANIEL BRYAN: I'm not even going to lie- it's always such a huge experience here in the Barclays Center for Summerslam! The crowds in New York are always loud and rowdy- just how we want them to be! I'm glad to see that everybody here is enjoying the show so far!

    Another pop.

    DANIEL BRYAN: Now, the reason why I'm out here? It's very simple. I'm here to make an announcement that will shake the future of the WWE to the core. Myself, Stephanie McMahon, Shane McMahon & Eric Bischoff have all been scouting the entire global for new talent. Superstars from all over the country that we feel could thrive in the WWE.

    Which gives me great pleasure to announce- that on the 13th and 14th of September, we will have a special two day event LIVE on the WWE Network.

    Cheers.

    DANIEL BRYAN: And everybody in this arena, and at home might be asking- well, what could this event be? Well allow me to introduce to all of you...

    Bryan points at the TitanTron.

    DANIEL BRYAN: THE CRUISERWEIGHT CLASSIC!

    The Barclays Center EXPLODES with 'YES!' chants.

    DANIEL BRYAN: That's right folks! On the 13th & 14th September- we will be seeing the RETURN of the Cruiserweights! Now, let's move onto the details. First of all, there will be 16 Cruiserweight superstars from all around the world that will participate in this tournament. And the winner of this tournament, will recieve not one- but TWO prizes.

    First of all, the winner will be the first ever recipient of the Cruiserweight Classic Trophy!

    More cheers.

    DANIEL BRYAN: And secondly? We will be seeing the return of some gold- as the winner will also become the FIRST EVER WWE Cruiserweight Champion!

    Another HUGE pop in the arena tonight.

    DANIEL BRYAN: It's great to see the excitement here- but I'm not even finished yet! I've got yet ANOTHER announcement regarding this Cruiserweight Classic. Because I will be introducing the FIRST participant of this tournament.

    But as Bryan goes to continue speaking- he's interrupted by somebody who has jumped over the barricade- and entered the ring! The camera zooms out as Bryan looks in front of the mystery individual... and the entire arena ERUPTS with a reaction of cheers and boos...

    IT'S HEATH SLATER!!!

    Slater calls for a mic as Bryan has a look of confusion in his face. On the other hand, the fans are chanting 'YES!' again, as they're assuming Slater is the first participant. Bryan goes to speak- but Slater cuts in.

    HEATH SLATER: Look, Daniel- I'm not out here to cause any trouble! But with the announcement of the Cruiserweight Division, this is huge- and it's perfect opportunity for me because I need a job man!

    Slater continues, and fans are chanting 'Sign Heath Slater!' as Bryan continues.

    DANIEL BRYAN: Well firstly, how the hell did you get in here?

    Slater laughs as Bryan looks confused.

    HEATH SLATER: I brought a front seat ticket to the show man! I know they're expensive, but there's always room for the ONE MAN BAAAAAAAAAAND BABY!!

    Another pop.

    DANIEL BRYAN: And secondly, you are WAY too heavy Heath. How do you expect to compete in this division when there's a 205 weight limit?

    Slater speaks again as the fans laugh.

    HEATH SLATER: Look man, I've had a bit of a heavy lunch today- but I'm definitely under the 205 weight limit!

    Bryan sighs.

    DANIEL BRYAN: Heath- I understand that you're desperate for a contract, but you have had enough opportunities to earn one, and you've come up short in all of them. I'm sorry Heath, but you're going to have to leave.

    The fans chant 'NO!' and then boo as Slater nods in disapproval.

    HEATH SLATER: You want me to leave? I DON'T THINK SO!

    The fans cheer a defiant Slater as Bryan looks shocked.

    HEATH SLATER: How could you refuse to put me in this tournament?! You won't put me on Raw, they won't put me on Smackdown- hell, they won't even put me on NXT! I'm the HOTTEST Free Agent in Sports Entertainment today- but the most important thing is? I've got a family to feed!

    I've got kids man!


    The fans cheer loudly as Bryan looks on- and the fans immediately burst into a 'He's got kids!' as Bryan speaks.

    DANIEL BRYAN: I'm not going to ask you again Heath, please leave.

    The fans then respond with boos, as Slater nods in disapproval- and he's refusing to leave. Bryan looks as if he's losing his patience, until a mystery superstar comes out of nowhere and stands on the apron...



    OH MY GOD!!! IT'S RICOCHET!!! RICOCHET IS HERE IN THE WWE screams Mauro Ranallo!!! The fans go nuts as Ricochet waits for Slater to turn around, with Slater looking confused as hell. Slater eventually turns around- and Ricochet launches off the ropes... SPRINGBOARD CLOTHESLINE TO SLATER!!! And Brooklyn erupts, as Ricochet stands in the center of the ring- and he looks around him to with the fans cheering him on. However, he isn't done! He gets up on the turnbuckle, as the crowd anticipate his next move...



    AND HE LAUNCHES WITH A 630 SENTON ONTO SLATER!!! The crowd chant 'HOLY SHIT' as Bryan smiles, and he speaks on the mic.

    DANIEL BRYAN:
    As I was saying earlier before I was interrupted... the FIRST participant in the Cruiserweight Classic Tournament is none other than The Future of Flight... RICOCHET!!!

    Brooklyn explodes with a HUGE pop for the arrival of Ricochet, as Ricochet soaks in all the applause from the fans. Ricochet looks in Daniel Bryan's eyes, before shaking his hand as everybody is loving it! Ricochet then looks to the crowd once again, before pointing at the Cruiserweight Classic logo on the TitanTron- to signal that he's going to win.



    JR says that this is BIG news! Booker says that he can't believe this- Ricochet is competing in The Cruiserweight Classic dawg! If there was any indication that the CWC is going to be amazing, than this is it right here! JBL talks about how Ricochet has competed and won championships all around the world, and he'll be bringing in his aerial threat to the CWC!

    The cameras then cut over to the Raw announcers team- as Ranallo says that he can't quite believe this! He's watched Ricochet's matches before, and I'm telling everybody right now- you will NOT be disappointed to see his presence. Graves says that we haven't even revealed all the other competitors, but he's definitely a favourite right there! Cole talks about how next, we have a history making moment match for Raw tonight as we will crown the FIRST ever Raw Womens Champion! Graves talks about how he can't wait for this 6 Pack Elimination Challenge match, and there are so many female superstars who are gunning to win this title and make it as prestigious as possible. And speaking of the title- here is what the women will be fighting for! The camera shows the newest title on the Raw brand as fans can be heard cheering.


    Ranallo says that this is the coveted prize that the women have been wanting, and they've got it! The competition in the Raw Womens division will get tougher and tougher, there's no doubt about it. But right now- it's time for some action, as 6 of Raw's best women will go face to face in a quest to become the inaugural Raw Womens Champion!

    JOJO: Now, it's time for the Womens 6 Pack Challenge Elimination Match to determine the first ever Raw Women Champion! Introducing first, from Columbus, Ohio, she is Miss Five Feet of Fury, and one half of Prestige... ALEXA BLISS!

    SPITEFUL

    Alexa Bliss' music hits- as Raw's very own Five Feet of Fury comes out to a light reaction of boos from the crowd. Bliss comes out to the stage, as Graves talks about how Alexa was drafted from NXT to Raw- and she has proven that she is here to stay as she has aligned herself with Summer Rae as one half of Prestige. Cole states that this is such a big stage for her, and she's the clear underdog in this match tonight. Alexa enters the ring, as she begins to taunt the fans.

    JOJO: Introducing second, she is the second half of Prestige. From Manhasset, New York... she is The First Lady of WWE... SUMMER RAE!

    SO COOL

    The fans boo as the music of Summer Rae blasts on the PA system as Summer makes her way to the ring. Summer begins to flaunt all her beauties, as Ranallo says that Summer is pretty and she goddamn knows it! Summer enters the ring, and she joins her partner as they shake hands before the big match. Graves talks about how The First Lady of WWE has been on a mission to prove why she shouldn't have been forgotten about, and maybe tonight will be her night?!

    JOJO: Introducing third, from Ponte Vedra Beach in Florida... ALICIA FOX!

    PARTY

    The music of Alicia Fox blasts around Brooklyn as the fans respond with a light pop for Foxy! Fox comes out, as she raises her hand in the air on the stage before making her way to the ring for this match. Cole talks about how Alicia Fox has been in the WWE for 8 years, and she is looking to prove that she is a veteran that hasn't lost her touch. Graves says that if Alicia uses her craziness, she could be a huge threat in this match.

    JOJO: And next up, she is from San Diego, California... the Fearless one... NIKKI BELLA!

    YOU CAN LOOK (BUT YOU CAN'T TOUCH)

    Brooklyn responds with loud cheers for the arrival of Nikki Bella, as Nikki comes out to a loud ovation of cheers, with some boos being heard- but they sound very minor. Nikki makes her way to the ring wearing a Fearless t-shirt, as Cole talks about how Nikki overcame her injury, and she is as fearless as ever. If she brings that mentality to this match, then she can reclaim her throne just like before. Nikki enters the ring.

    JoJo: From Boston, Massachusetts... she is THE BOSS... SASHA BANKS!

    SKY'S THE LIMIT

    JHEEZE!! The fans explode with a HUGE POP for The Boss as Sasha Banks comes out looking as glamorous as ever with her Boss gear. Banks does her trademark pose on the stage before making her way to the ring, as Cole states that we all know who Brooklyn wants the winner of this match to be! Ranallo says that Banks is the HUGE favourite in this match, and Graves agrees. Banks enters the ring as her music stops, and the fans begin to chant 'SASHA!' over and over again.

    JoJo: And finally, the-

    TIME TO RISE

    Jojo is cut off, and the fans go absolutely CRAZY with loud boos for the music of All Red Everything as the lights immediately turn red. Summer, Fox & Alexa, Nikki & Sasha all turn to the stage as a voice over begins to play- with the Brooklyn clearly not showing any respect as a voice over begins to play.

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

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

    EVA MARIE!

    And Eva Marie comes out to the stage as she begins to pose, whilst the Brooklyn fans chant 'EVA SUCKS!' loudly over and over again. Eva responds by blowing a kiss to the crowd which pisses them off even more. She makes her way to the ring as Ranallo says that the entrance might be dazzling- but let's see her performance tonight will be dazzling enough to become the champion. Graves says that he absolutely loves Eva- and she might just steal the win tonight.

    All 6 of the women begin to stare each other down in the ring, as the referee calls for the Raw Womens Championship to be given to him. The title is passed over to the referee, and he stands in the center of the ring- and he raises it high in the air as the fans cheer. The ref passes it back to the timekeeper, before calling for the bell as this match is on!



    Match Four: Alexa Bliss vs. Alicia Fox vs. Eva Marie vs. Nikki Bella vs. Sasha Banks vs. Summer Rae- 6-Pack Elimination Challenge Match for the vacant Raw Womens Championship

    Elimination 1:
    The match kicked off in a brawl as Sasha Banks, Nikki Bella & Alicia Fox began to brawl with Summer Rae & Alexa Bless of Prestige as well as Eva Marie, all respectively. The first elimination of the night came as Alicia Fox was attempting to fight off both members of Prestige in the ring. On the other hand, it was Sasha Banks & Nikki Bella also fighting in the corner as Eva Marie was outside the ring, on the floor in pain as she had been thrown over the top rope by Banks.

    Prestige continue to gang up on Alicia Fox as Summer holds Fox up for Alexa to hit Alicia with a shot to the face, boom! Another shot to the face, boom! Alexa begins to scream at the fans, whilst pointing at Foxy- shouting 'THIS IS WHAT YOUR VETERAN LOOKS LIKE!' as the fans begin to boo. Alexa continues the flurry of shots to the face of Fox, before she goes for another one... only for Fox to duck as Alexa accidentally smacks her partner! Fox manages to escape Summer's grasp due to the shock of the move, and Alexa immediately goes over to her partner to see if she is okay. But Alicia waits in the background as both members of Prestige looked up to Alicia coming out of nowhere with a Single Leg Dropkick to Alexa!


    Alexa goes down as Summer begins to intervene, and she grabs a handful of Alicia's hair- before pulling it, as Alicia screamed in pain. Summer pushes Alicia to the other side, before going to set her up for a finisher. Summer waits for Alicia to turn around, as she did, and Summer immediately goes for a Spinning Heel Kick... but Alicia ducks as Summer hits the air and falls to the floor due to the momentum of the move! Summer begins to kneel as Alicia runs from one side to another...



    And Alicia BLASTS Summer with a Watch Yo' Face! Summer goes down as Alicia goes for the cover... One! Two! Three! And Summer is out of this match!

    //SUMMER RAE IS ELIMINATED//

    The fans cheer as Alicia Fox looks satisfied, gaining the first elimination of the match as Ranallo says that Summer Rae simply should've watched her face! Meanwhile, on the corner- Sasha hits Nikki with a huge left hook as Nikki goes tumbling back towards the centre of the ring. Sasha charges at Nikki with a Clothesline but Nikki sees it coming as she grabs hold of Sasha and manages to convert it into a Back Body Drop to a mixed reaction from the crowd.

    Elimination 2: As the match has continued, we've seen an angry Alexa Bliss charging towards Alicia Fox from behind with a Backbreaker, with Five Feet of Fury living up to her name as she looked to avenge her partner's elimination by being absolutely relentless towards Alicia Fox. We also have Nikki Bella looking to continue her offence onto Sasha until Eva Marie came out of nowhere with a Lou Thesz Press and began to unload on Nikki!

    The bout continues as Alicia Fox is in the corner, and her tussle with Alexa continues as Alexa erupts with vicious stomps to the body of Alicia. She hits one stomp, and another one, she continues her offence as the camera heads over to Eva & Sasha as Sasha charges at Eva but Eva manages to hit Sasha with a shoulder block to boos from the crowd. Nikki Bella has rolled out of the ring in pain- from Eva's attack earlier. There are duel chants of 'Let's go Sasha/Eva sucks' from Brooklyn as Eva then follows up her offence with a cartwheel to boos from the crowd, as she's clearly mocking them. Cole says that Eva has mastered the art of showboating, as Sasha is on the floor.

    Eva grabs Sasha by the hair before picking her up- and throwing her into the corner, before charging towards her... RUNNING SENTON TO SASHA!! Sasha stumbles towards the centre of the ring, as the fans boo with Eva putting on a good display. Eva runs back towards Sasha...



    RUNNING CLOTHESLINE TO SASHA!! Eva gets back on her feet, looking proud of her work- and the fans chant 'THAT WAS SHIT!' as Eva responds by doing Sasha Banks' signature twirl, to a huge amount of boos from the crowd. Eva grabs hold of Sasha, putting her in position to nail her with a Sliced Red (Shiranui). She looks to the crowd, and she charges towards the turnbuckle and she goes for the Shiranui... BUT SASHA COUNTERS WITH A DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER... AND SASHA TRANSITIONS IT INTO A BANK STATEMENT!!! Sasha has Eva locked in the submission hold as the fans cheer, and Cole asks if Eva will tap?! Eva screams in pain, and she is doing her best to fight out of it as she attempts to reach over to the ropes but Sasha just tightens the maneuver... AND EVA MARIE TAPS OUT!!!

    //EVA MARIE IS ELIMINATED//

    The fans are going nuts, and they begin to chant 'THANK YOU SASHA' as Sasha stays in the corner, still hurt from Eva's offense. Sasha gets back up to her feet as she stirs in pain... ONLY FOR ALEXA TO HIT SASHA WITH A FOREARM SMASH FROM OUT OF NOWHERE! Alexa goes for the cover, as the fans boo loudly. One! Two! BUT SASHA KICKS OUT!! The fans cheer again as Alexa can't believe it. Alexa continues to target Sasha as Cole talks about how this is an example of Sasha's determination.

    Elimination 3: The fans have been up on their feet for this match- as Ranallo says that the Raw women have been battling like absolute machines in this match, all showing why they want to be the first ever Raw Womens Champion. As the second elimination was completed, we had Alexa Bliss continue her offense on Sasha- with Nikki being outside of the ring still, and Alicia being on the floor in the ring. But Sasha managed to bring the fight back to Alexa to a big pop from the crowd as the fans were firmly behind Sasha, refusing to cheer for anybody else, even the other faces in the match.

    Back to the action, as Alexa & Sasha continue to brawl- Alicia Fox comes out of nowhere with a a big kick to the face of Sasha as the fans begin to boo. Alicia turns back to Alexa- wanting a bit of redemption from Alexa's offense earlier, and Alicia grabs Alexa by the shoulder- and she hooks her arm over head before lifting her up...



    BRIDGING NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX TO ALEXA! The fans cheer as Ranallo says that Alicia has turned the lights off! Graves says that Alicia claims to have the best Bridging Northern Lights Suplex in the WWE, and he can't disagree with her! Alicia continues, as she turns back around to see Sasha slowly getting up. She grabs hold of Sasha's hand and hooks it over her head, to do the same... ANOTHER BRIDGING NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX TO SASHA!! The fans boo this time due to Sasha being a fan favorite. Alicia hooks Sasha's leg and goes for the pin. One! Two! BUT SASHA KICKS OUT!

    The fans cheer as Sasha is still in it! Sasha rolls to the corner as Alicia gets up and turns around. She sees a rapid Alexa Bliss running towards her as Alicia attempts to stop whatever move Alexa was planning.. but ALEXA NAILS A TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSOR TAKEDOWN TO ALICIA!! Alexa goes for the cover as the referee counts... ONE! TWO! BUT ALICIA KICKS OUT! The fans cheer again as Alicia is still in the match, and Alexa can't believe it! Alexa begins to throw a tantrum in the ring, as she smacks the ring over and over again like a brat. Alexa gets up, and she screams 'I'M A GODDESS!' to Alicia Fox! She grabs Alicia, and begins to slap her repeatedly in the face... Alexa begins to pose in the center of the ring as Graves says that Alexa's taunting is clearly gettng to her head, she thinks she's better than what she actually is. Alexa looks to grab Alicia... BUT ALICIA HITS ALEXA WITH A SPEAR!! Alexa goes down, as Alicia gets back up- but Alexa is kneeling. Alicia hooks her leg over Alexa's head, and grabs her arm... FOXY BUSTER TO ALEXA BLISS! Alicia goes for the cover. One! Two! THREE! ALEXA IS ELIMINATED!

    //ALEXA BLISS IS ELIMINATED//

    The fans cheer as Cole says that Alicia has eliminated BOTH members of Prestige! Alicia gets back up to her feet as Alexa is slowly also getting back up to her feet. The referee forces Alexa to get out- but she begins to whine and complain to the ref, but the ref is having none of it! He forces Alexa to the back as she exits the ring, and she screams in anger at being eliminated. On the other hand, The Boss also gets back up to her feet- as Alicia Fox looks on. The two women begin to stare down as the fans chant 'LET'S GO SASHA' with no cheers for Alicia, despite Alicia also being a babyface. The fans want Sasha to win, and they're making it known!

    Elimination 4:As Sasha & Alicia continue to stare down, both women make the first move and it's on! Sasha & Alicia begin to grapple as both women look to take control. Sasha manages to escape Alicia's grasp, before striking with a Roundhouse Kick as she goes to hit Alicia in the head- but Alicia sees it coming, and she ducks before doing a Matrix Evation to a pop from the fans! Sasha looks on, almost impressed at Alicia- before Sasha does her signature twirl, which the fans seem to like even more.

    But there isn't no time for fun, and both women know this as Sasha runs towards Alicia with an attempted Forearm Smash- but Alicia grabs hold of Sasha's arm, before going for an Arm Drag as she drags Sasha all the way down to the canvas. Alicia gets back up, and she kicks Sasha in the head before running from one side to another... SOMERSAULT LEG DROP TO SASHA! Alicia goes for the cover, as the fans begin to boo! One! Two! BUT SASHA KICKS OUT!

    Alicia can't believe it, but Alicia heads back to the corner to regroup, and Sasha rolls over to the other corner- as both women are clearly full of fatigue right now, in this hard-fought match. The fans chant 'LET'S GO SASHA' as Ranallo says that they are still fully behind The Boss, no matter what. Both women use the corner for leverage to pick themselves up, and they eventually do so... until Alicia Fox charges towards Sasha with a Big Boot only for Sasha to duck and roll out of harm's way! Alicia's momentum causes her to miss, but she prevents hitting the ropes. Sasha slowly gets back up to her feet as Alicia turns around to Sasha charging towards her...

    AND SASHA BANKS NAILS A MONKEY FLIP!!! Alicia goes flying towards the centre of the ring as the fans are going nuts! Sasha eventually gets back to her feet again, as she looks to Alicia- and screams 'I'M THE BOSS!' to a pop from the fans. However, Alicia refuses to stay down as she's picking herself back up. But Alicia has been damaged so much, and she's so tired that she doesn't know what's coming as Sasha charges towards Alicia and picks her up...



    BANKRUPT TO ALICIA FOX!!!! The fans go nuts as Sasha goes for the cover... One! Two! THREE!!! ALICIA FOX IS OUT to a HUGE pop from the fans.

    //ALICIA FOX IS ELIMINATED//

    Elimination 5: The fans go NUTS as Alicia Fox is eliminated! The referee helps Alicia exit the ring as Sasha Banks stirs in the ring. Ranallo says that Sasha has the momentum on her side! This is her time! The fans chant 'SASHA! SASHA! SASHA!' over and over again as Cole says that this is Sasha's moment to finally achieve her childhood dreams of becoming Raw Womens Champion. Brooklyn might finally see Sasha win her first ever Womens title on the main roster- as Sasha is steadily trying to get back up as she knows that she's got one more elimination to go- and Sasha is finally up on her feet.....

    BUT NIKKI BELLA SUDDENLY ENTERS THE RING...

    SHE CREEPS UP ON SASHA FROM BEHIND...

    AND SHE ROLLS SASHA UP FOR A SCHOOL-GIRL PIN...

    ONE!

    TWO!

    THREE!!!!!


    //SASHA BANKS IS ELIMINATED//

    JOJO:
    HERE'S YOUR WINNER... AND THE INAUGRAL RAW WOMENS CHAMPION... NIKKI BELLA!!

    AND NIKKI BELLA HAS DONE IT!! NIKKI BELLA HAS STOLEN THE VICTORY! Screams Michael Cole as the crowd in Brooklyn are absolutely SHOCKED. Half of Brooklyn begins to boo as Nikki Bella has RUINED Sasha Banks' dreams!!! Michael Cole is going absolutely insane, as Graves & Ranallo have a SHOCKED look on their faces.

    Nikki Bella begins to celebrate as the referee hands her the Raw Womens Championship! Cole says that Nikki Bella has gained redemption! She came back from a grueling injury, and she took her status at the top back by becoming the FIRST EVER Raw Womens Champion! The fans aren't happy, as they clearly wanted Sasha to win and they respond with boos as Nikki kisses the title in joy.

    The referee raises Nikki's hand, before Nikki immediately heads out of the ring, and she walks to the back as the fans aren't happy with the outcome at all. Nikki stands on the stage- and she raises the title yet again to boos from the crowd, before heading to the back. However, the camera shifts over to the ring- as Sasha Banks sits on the canvas, absolutely shocked over the loss.




    Ranallo says that Sasha Banks was ROBBED!! Nikki Bella played possum for this entire match, she left all the women to do the dirty work- and THEN she made her move!!! Graves says that this might be the most cleverest thing he's seen all night- kudos to Nikki Bella! Cole moves on, and he says that it's time to see a video package- hyping up Smackdown Live's first PPV event since the brand extension- Backlash!




    NARRATOR: "When the hottest party of the summer comes to an end, when the winners are victorious, the losers are defeated..

    It can only mean one thing..

    ...Prepare, the BACKLASH is coming!"


    "Our Time" then plays by Alien Ant Farm in the background as shots of various Smackdown superstars are shown. The Bullet Club, Charlotte Flair, Natalya, The Revival, The Dudley Boyz, Finn Balor, The Wyatt Family, Kane & many more.

    NARRATOR: "The WWE Universe is divided. The war for ratings has begun. For Smackdown Live, the time is now! It's OUR TIME RIGHT NOW!"

    "Live from Richmond Coliseum, Richmond, Virginia. Smackdown Live presents.. BACKLASH!"




    A small commercial plays for Cricket Wireless, one of SummerSlam's sponsors before the action returns to ringside with the Smackdown commentary in picture as Jim Ross welcomes us back to the action. "JR" says that the next match of the night is quite literally- King Kong vs Godzilla, Goliath vs Goliath, the Monster among men vs the Big Red Machine. It's Kane vs Braun Strowman!

    A video package then plays and showcases the confrontation and face to face between Kane and Braun on the previous Smackdown as they competed in the Battle Royal. It shows their entrances and crowd reactions to both men as they appeared on Smackdown Live for the first time of the new era before they would go on to dominate the match, numerous eliminations before they would come to eliminate themselves. It would then show them backstage brawling. Items going flying and nothing but destruction as the two monsters battled while various officials, backstage workers and Referee's tried to split them. The video ends with both Kane and Braun facing off as the video package ends and the live camera returns to commentary.
    "JR" confirms that this match is going to be bowling shoe ugly and says that this will not be for the wrestling purists as these two men are going to destroy each other tonight and god help anyone that gets in their way. "JBL" says that this is a match that he can't wait to see and that both men are going to want to prove that there is only room for one dominant monster on Smackdown Live! Booker says that from the moment both of these men were in the ring on Smackdown- you could feel the tension and this is no doubt a battle about pride of being the one true monster of Smackdown- maybe even the WWE. Booker says that these two men are not about rules and regulations, they're going to beat the heck out of each other and it's no DQ?! You gotta' love it!

    SLOW CHEMICAL!!

    The lights went out for a moment before an explosion hits the stage as a fire lighting lit the Barclays Center up a bright red as the crowd popped for the arrival of Kane. The Big Red machine makes his way down the ramp before pulling himself up on the apron and stepping over the top rope before lifting him his arms up and bringing them back down to another explosive pyro that blasted from the four turnbuckles.

    LIVE IN FEAR!!

    The lights went out again and this time for longer as the Wyatt pre-match promo would play before the promo would skip and the theme kicked in. The Barclay's center was lit up with "Fireflies" fifteen thousand plus strong with their camera's in the air as the crowd lit up like a night sky with the stars shining down. Bray would step out from behind the curtain with his lantern in hand as he led the way with his monstrous black sheep behind him in toe. Bray would stop short before the ramp and would blow out the lantern as the lights came back on and the crowd gave a mixed response of cheers and boos. Braun would then lean down and turn to Bray who would take off his black mask and would whisper in Braun's ear before ordering him to the ring. Bray would then step back behind the camera before Braun would turn to the ring and would make his way down the ramp, his feet stomping with each step as he breathed in and out like a man possessed.

    Braun reached the middle of the ramp and Kane would cut him off as the crowd popped for the two monsters as they started trading blows on the ramp. Kane would nail Braun with an uppercut before swinging the bigger Braun into the crowd barrier and following it up with a clothesline. Kane would then grab Braun by the hair and would drag him up the ramp before swinging him into the stage as Braun would go back first and crash into the stage as the stage LED screen would scratch and fade for a moment.

    Kane would then charge at Braun but Strowman would nail him first with a big boot to the face- knocking him down. Braun would then drag up Kane and would pick him up like a long dart before driving him face first into the stage as again the LED screen would skip and show static. Braun would then drag up Kane, striking him across the back before he would tease to launch Kane off the stage. The Big Red Machine would fight out with elbows to Braun's stomach before firing up with another uppercut before gripping Braun around the neck and teasing a choke slam off the stage onto the tables and equipment to the side of the ramp. Braun though would headbutt Kane to escape before both men would brawl back down the ramp to ringside and would eventually enter the ring as the ring bell sounded.



    Match Five: No DQ Match - Kane vs Braun Strowman.

    Finish: The match at this point was 5-6 minutes of nothing but brawling and uncensored violence as both men through each other around the ring and ringside. Steel chairs, kendo sticks and trash cans. Everything but the kitchen sink was used at this point but neither man would sell anything for too long as the crowd were wowed by their willingness to take pain and get right back up. At this point- both men would be fighting near the time keepers area and trading strikes before Braun would elbow Kane to the face before picking up the timekeepers bell and would clock Kane across the head knocking him down. Braun would then let out a roar as the crowd responded mixed once more before Braun would lay boots to Kane. Strowman would then drag up Kane and would position him draped across the time keepers barricade before stepping back. Braun would then let out another roar of "BBRRRRAAAUUUUUNNNN!!" before running at Kane like a run away train when..



    ..CRASH!! "GOOD GAWD ALMIGHTY!!" Shouted Jim Ross as Braun smashed into the time keeper barrier and it exploded on impact as the crowd popped. Kane would then sense his chance and would grab a steel chair, fold it up and would unleash pain on Braun as he smashed it across the back of Strowman multiple times! SMASH! SMASH! SMASH! The chair would bend across the back of Strowman as Kane would show the crowd before tossing the chair across ringside. The Big Red Machine would then go one further as he would walk around the ring and would lift up the top of the steel steps. Kane would raise it high in the air as the crowd gasped at Braun once more rising up from the rumble as Kane would drill Braun square in the head with the steps knocking down the Monster among men. Kane would then raise the steps as high as he could with a struggle before dropping it on top of Braun as again the crowd gasped. "LORD HAVE MERCY ON STROWMAN- KANE IS ON A WAR-PATH!!" Said Jim Ross as Kane looked on at a now motionless Braun. The Big Red Machine grabs another steel chair from ringside and tosses it into the ring before sliding underneath the ropes into the ring and surveying the damage.

    The commentary team play up that Braun Strowman has not moved among the broken barrier and steel steps and that this match is over. The Referee exits the ring and checks the damage before signalling that the match is over an calls for medical help from the back. However the monster once again rises up, throwing the steps and piercing Kane with his eyes as the crowd give a pop. Braun then stomps over the rubble and enters the ring as Kane looks to swing with the chair only for Braun to punch it out of his hands. Braun would then wrap his hand around the throat of Kane and would look to deliver a choke slam only for Kane to low blow Braun and pick up the chair once more for another swing as Braun would turn and smash the chair back into Kane's face with a big boot- knocking him down! Braun would then pick up Kane and would scoop him up onto his shoulders before running and planting him on top of the steel chair with the RUNNING POWER-SLAM!! Kane would land hard on to the steel chair as it bounced back off the mat and outside of the ring due to the force. Braun would then stand tall and over Kane as he would roar once more.. "BBRRAAAUUUUUUNNNNNN!!" As some of the crowd joined in while others boo'd. "JBL" would yell for Braun to cover Kane as he said the match was over and that there's nobody getting up from that running power-slam from Braun! Booker agree's before letting out a cry of "WHAT THE HELL?!" as the crowd popped at a familiar pose.

    Kane would rise up off his back into a seated position as the commentary team would again raise the issue that neither man can keep the other down for any sustained length of time. Braun would have a moment of fear in his eyes as he watched Kane now stand back up. The two behemoths would then stand in the center of the ring as they both wonder what they've got to do to keep the other man down.



    The crowd would chant "This is awesome!" before Braun and Kane would stand and trade strikes once more. Kane would then place his hand across the throat of Braun and would squeeze tight. Braun would look likely to fade before he would raise his right hand and grip the throat of Kane. Both Kane and Braun would have each other in a tight death grip as both men were feeling the strain as there bodies started to slump. Braun would then show is strength- using his free arm to chop away Kane's grip before raising Kane up high in the air and delivering a Choke-Slam to the canvas! Braun would then cover but would only get a two count before Kane would roll out of the ring.

    The Monster among men would be in pursuit as he followed Kane out of the ring. Braun would then grip Kane by the tights as Jim Ross would yell for his broadcast partners to move out of the way as Braun would launch Kane over the Smackdown commentary table at ringside- clearing the drinks, notepads and equipment as Kane collided across the table canvas and into the chairs below. Strowman would then go one further and would show his strength by lifting up the table and pushing it on top of Kane, crushing him below.



    The crowd would pop like crazy as Braun stood and admired his work. Braun would then turn away and walk towards the ramp as the Referee would rush out of the ring and this time for good would wave off the match before calling down help and medical attention that would arrive. At this point Braun would now be up by the stage entrance and would be about to exit when he would look at the Titantron and would see the table start to move as the crowd would cheer. Braun would then turn in shock as Kane would rise from underneath the table as the medical staff would try to help the Big Red Machine. Kane would fight and knock down the medical staff before walking around ringside and up the ramp where Braun would be waiting. The two men would continue their fighting as it boiled over behind the curtain as the camera footage was unable to keep up.

    JoJo would announce that due to the Referee's stoppage- this match would be ruled a no contest and a draw! The crowd would boo for the decision as the live camera panned around ringside and showcased the damage and destruction from both men. "JR" would suggest that both Braun and Kane could have continued for the rest of the night fighting and that neither man was going to back down. "JBL" says that they've made a mess of ringside, our commentary table and we are hearing word that both Kane and Braun cannot be separated backstage! Booker says that this one is not done and we have not seen the last of these two men battling inside the ring. "JR" says that he can confirm that Kane and Braun have continued the brawl in the backstage area and we will keep you updated on that situation.



    We head over to the announcers table for Raw as Cole talks about how THAT was what you call chaos. Two Goliaths just battled in the ring and beat the living crap out of each other! Ranallo states that we have a Tag Team Championship Match lined up for you as two of the elite tag teams in the WWE today will be going head to head for the coveted prize! Cole says that however, there is a twist! Due to the brand extension, the two teams will be battling it out for the Raw Tag Team Championships as we have new belts!


    Graves says that the new titles looks damn good- but the match between the two tag teams should be better! We have the future going up against the present, American Alpha vs. The New Day! American Alpha are looking to prove exactly why they belong on Raw, whereas The New Day are looking to continue their reign as the top tag team on Monday nights! This match is gonna be awesome!

    JOJO: This match is scheduled for one fall! And it is for the Raw Tag Team Championships! Introducing first... the WWE Tag Team Champions... they are THE NEW DAY!!

    'OOOOOHHHHHHHHH BROOKLYN...

    DON'T YOU DARE BE SOUR!

    CLAP FOR YOUR LONGEST REIGNING TAG TEAM CHAMPS...

    AND FEEEEEEEEL THE POWEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!'


    NEW DAY, NEW WAY

    The power of positivity is visible in the Barclays Center tonight as the WWE Tag Team Champions come out to a big pop from the fans. Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods & Big E all begin to dance their way to the ring with their titles, and a box of their cereal in Booty-O's- as Woods also has Francesca 2 with him! Big E walks up to members of the crowd, and he gives many kids a Booty'O's shower before the three men make their way to the ring.

    Ranallo talks about how they are indeed the longest reigning champions, and they aren't looking to stop their fantastic form. Graves agrees, and The New Day are at the pinnacle of their run, will American Alpha be the ones to stop them? Or will The New Day continue their historic title reign?! The New Day then enter the ring, as they each ask for mics. Their music stops, as the champions are set to speak.

    XAVIER WOODS: This time last year... in the Barclays Center right here in Brooklyn, New York... was where it all started. It was a night where we went face to face with three other tag teams in The Lucha Dragons... Los Matadores... and The Prime Time Players!

    KOFI KINGSTON: It was simply just a dream for all us! But then that dream became a reality. Because on that same night, we defeated all three of those tag teams to become the TWO time...

    The New Day all begin to shimmy as fans join along...

    ALL: W... W... E... World... Tag... Team... CHAMPIOOOOOOOOONS!

    The fans cheer as Big E speaks.

    BIG E: And THAT was the beginning of our historic reign! Where we have defeated tag team after tag team, till there were simply no more! There hasn't been a SINGLE tag team in this division that have been able to put us in our places... until the threat that is being posed tonight steps in.

    KOFI KINGSTON: I mean... WHO could the threat for tonight be?!

    The fans begin to shout 'WHO?!' in response to Big E.

    XAVIER WOODS: It's none other than a tag team that features a former Olympian and a man who used to run the wrestling scene in the Indiana University. A team that has two friends.. who came up from NXT- who are ready, willing and Gable to do whatever it takes to take these titles off us... we're talking about...

    ALL: American Alpha!

    Loud cheers from the crowd.

    BIG E: They're a very popular tag team, that's for sure! You all like them! WE ALL LIKE THEM! And they remind us of... well us! With a mix of speed and strength and agility- the list goes on! There's no doubt that tonight? That The New Day may have about 99 problems.. and American Alpha are definitely one!

    The fans cheer for the Jay-Z mention.

    KOFI KINGSTON: Like you said E- American Alpha remind us of us... but there are a lot of things we can all say they DON'T have! Where do I even begin? I mean... first of all- they don't have any unicorn headbands that light up!

    The New Day all look to each other.

    XAVIER WOODS: That's right Kofi, no they don't!

    KOFI KINGSTON: Second of all... they don't have the POWER of positivity!

    BIG E: Hmmm... I wouldn't be so sure about that Kofi, they're ALWAYS smiling like us. Have you even seen Jason Jordan's squeaky white colgate teeth?!

    Kofi looks to Big E in confusion.

    KOFI KINGSTON: Hmmm, that's true E! So what else don't they have?!

    The New Day begin to think to themselves, until Woods cuts in.

    XAVIER WOODS: I KNOW! They don't have their own cereal brand... BOOTY-O'S!

    BIG E: Which, by the way, they make sure you ain't BOOTY!

    The fans cheer as Kofi continues.

    KOFI KINGSTON: And FINALLY... and most importantly... what they also don't have- is these titles! And tonight? The winner of this match will gain themselves some NEW shiny gold. 'Cause we're talking about the Raw Tag Team Championships!

    Kofi goes to continue but Big E speaks in confusion, whilst Woods is also confused.

    BIG E: Wait, Kofi- we didn't even do the dance!

    XAVIER WOODS: Yeah, what's going on Kofi?!

    KOFI KINGSTON: Well, we ain't got them yet so...

    BIG E: NO! That's not the attitude to have Kofi! We WILL have them by the end of this match. Because tonight? It might be the present vs. the future... but we will show exactly WHY we are present...

    Woods looks at Big E in satisfaction.

    XAVIER WOODS: You're right Big E... oh you're so right! Oh Big E, Big E, Big E, can't you see? Sometimes your words just hypnotise me!

    A loud pop for the mention of Biggie Smalls as The New Day laugh.

    KOFI KINGSTON:
    Oh Woods, that was juicy for sho'! And things will be even more sweet tonight... because if... no... WHEN we win? Not only do we get these new titles... but we also continue our historic record. And as for Jason Jordan & Chad Gable.. they can bring all the Suplexes that they want!

    Big E: They can bring all their Ankle Locks!

    Xavier Woods: But it won't be enough because WE'RE going to win... WE'RE going to continue our reign as the longest reigning champions... and WE'RE going to prove one thing...

    The New Day all look at each other...

    All: THAT NEW! DAY ROCKS!

    The fans begin to chant 'NEW! DAY ROCKS!' along with The New Day themselves, as they immediately drop the mics- and get ready for their opponents.

    JOJO: And the challengers! Making their PPV debut in the WWE... AMERICAN ALPHA!!

    ELITE

    As American Alpha's music hit- Brooklyn responds with loud cheers as Chad Gable & Jason Jordan come out. The two men stand on the stage, and they look determined and focus with a face of joy- clearly happy about being on such a stage like this. They make their way to the ring as they slap the hands of the fans, and they enter the ring whilst the champions look on from the ring. Ranallo states that this is a huge opportunity for both men, to be competing for the titles on their WWE PPV debut is a step in the right direction for these two talented young individuals! Cole says that he would not be surprised if we saw NEW Tag Team Champions tonight!

    As the three men in the ring decide who should compete in the match, American Alpha look on- with a serious look on their faces as this is clearly important to them just as much as it is to The New Day. And eventually, The New Day decide as Xavier Woods kisses the belts, before exiting the ring. But on the other hand, the two teams begin to stare off from their positions. However, The New Day are forced to give their titles to the referee- giving those titles one last kiss as they won't see them again! The referee calls for the timekeeper, who swaps the tag titles for the one of the newest Raw Tag Team Championships. The ref walks back to the centre, and he raises the title in the air before handing the new belt back to the timekeeper- and calling for the bell!



    Match Six: The New Day (c) vs. American Alpha- Raw Tag Team Championship Match

    Finish: Both teams have tore the roof apart in this high octane tag team match! The fans have been mixed with their reactions, as they have been rooting for both the champions and challengers, and there hasn't been a single drop of boos from the crowd due to both teams being very popular in Brooklyn. The match began with Chad Gable & Big E as it started very slow, but then the bout began to pick up pace with Big E's power style and Gable's technical ability, focusing on Big E's ankle. As the match went on, we saw the wrestling combinations of Kingston's high flying skills against Gable's technical skills, and Jordan's power style against Kingston's high flying skills as well.

    Back to the action- the legal men are currently Chad Gable & Big E again as Graves points out how Gable has targeted Big E's ankle throughout the duration of both men being legal. The two men run towards each other with intentions of going on the offense- but Big E manages to grab hold of Gable as he takes advantage due to his strength and size, and he lifts him up into the air as he looks set to hit a move... BUT GABLE POWERS OUT OF IT WITH A HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN! Big E hits the canvas on his knees due to Gable's counter as Cole screams that Gable is taking it to the big man!

    The fans cheer as Gable has the upper hand so far, and he SMASHES Big E's ankle with a HUGE stomp as he looks to weaken Big E's leg. He goes for another one, BANG! And another one, BANG! Gable continues as Big E screams, BANG! BANG! BANG! Ranallo points out how Gable is showing signs of aggression that we haven't seen on the main roster yet, as Gable stops. Gable walks over to the corner, and he gets up on the top turnbuckle. Gable waits for Big E to get up as he slowly does so- and Gable is set to go for a Diving Clothesline- but Big E sees it coming, and he runs towards the turnbuckle as Big E unloads with a headbutt!!!

    Gable begins to lose grip on the apron- as Big E goes for another headbutt, bang! Kofi moves closer to his partner, and Big E tags Kofi in. Kofi enters the ring, and he begins to unload with headbutts also- BANG, BANG! Jordan begins to scream from behind the apron in anger at the referee- as Kofi tags Big E in again. And Big E hits Gable with one last headbutt as Gable finally drops off the turnbuckle as the former Olympian stands in the corner. Big E takes a few steps back as the fans begin to respond with a duel chant in 'Let's go New Day, American Alpha.' Cole points out how both teams are popular in New York tonight. Big E looks to the crowd, and he shouts 'NEW! DAY!' to a pop as Big E charges towards Gable...




    AND HE BLASTS GABLE WITH A BODY AVALANCHE!! Gable has been hit so hard that he crashes onto the canvas, head first immediately- as Ranallo states that Big E's power is too much for Gable to handle! Jordan shouts for Gable to tag him in- as Kofi cheers on his partner. Big E looks down on Gable to continue his offense, and he begins to shimmy with theatrics before he runs from one side to another for a RUNNING BODY SPLASH TO GABLE... BUT GABLE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AS BIG E HITS THE CANVAS! This leads to Gable getting back up to his feet- and he takes his time whilst doing so, but he walks over to the corner and gets up on the turnbuckle again as he looks to go in the air... he waits for Big E to get up as he does so, whilst Xavier Woods begins to play Francesca 2 to distract Gable- but Gable launches with a RAPID Diving Crossbody...

    BUT BIG E GRABS HOLD OF GABLE- and the fans go nuts as BIG E HAS GABLE IN POSITION FOR A BIG ENDING!! Ranallo says that this could be the big ending that Big E was looking for... but Gable CLINGS onto the ropes! Big E is forced to let go off Gable, as he does so, and he takes a few steps back as he waits for Gable to get up. Gable gets up, and he turns around as Big E goes for a Clothesline but Gable ducks... and GABLE LEAPS OVER TO JORDAN... AND GABLE MAKES THE TAG!!!

    Jason Jordan enters the ring... and the fans begin to erupt as Jordan looks Big E straight into the eye, and the two men begin to face off in the ring- as Ranallo screams MAMMA MIA- this is the clash of the titans! Due to both men's strength and size, the fans are excited as the two men charge at each other, and they begin to exchange shots to the head! It goes JORDAN! BIG E! BIG E! JORDAN! JORDAN! BIG E! Big E goes for another shot but Jordan sees it coming, and he ducks under Big E's fist- before grabbing hold of Big E's body... GERMAN SUPLEX TO BIG E!!! The fans cheer as Big E crashes onto the canvas, and Jordan goes for the cover. One! Two! BUT BIG E KICKS OUT AT 2!

    Jordan immediately gets up, as he waits for Big E to get up- and Jordan motions for Gale to come back to the ring! Gable enters the ring as the two men wait for Big E to turn back around. And Big E has his face towards American Alpha as he charges towards the both of them- but Gable & Jordan hit a double hip toss to a pop from the fans as Big E hits the canvas- but Big E isn't looking to stay down. He immediately gets back up as Ranallo points out how this is an example of American Alpha's solid chemistry together. Big E turns back to Jordan & Gable...




    AND AMERICAN ALPHA NAIL A DOUBLE DROPKICK TO BIG E!! Big E hits the canvas again as American Alpha begin to get fired up. The two men look to take advantage but they turn around to the other side to notice a certain somebody in the air... DOUBLE DIVING CLOTHESLINE FROM KOFI KINGSTON ONTO AMERICAN ALPHA!!!! The fans cheer as Cole says that Kofi did what Gable was attempting to do earlier on! And both Gable & Jordan go down with Kofi's Double Clothesline affecting Gable a lot more as Jordan rolls over to lay under the apron. Kofi looks down on Gable, and he looks up to the crowd before shouting 'BOOM!' as the fans join in, and Kofi runs from one side to another... BOOM DROP TO GABLE!!

    The fans cheer, before Woods begins to play his trombone to the tune of 'NEW! DAY ROCKS!' as the fans join along. The New Day look to the crowd, as the fans chant 'NEW! DAY ROCKS!' to the tune of Woods' trombone, and Big E looks to the other side of the ring to notice Jordan getting back up to his feet also. Jordan eventually gets back up, as Big E looks to the crowd- and the fans begin to cheer at what they think he's about to do... and Big E charges towards Jason Jordan...



    SPEAR THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE ROPES!!! AND THE FANS GO NUTS AS THE TWO MEN GO FLYING OUT OF THE RING!!! Both of the legal men are outside as the referee begins to count.


    One...

    But on the other hand, Kofi cheers on his partner. But Kofi turns around... and Gable hits Kofi with a Dropkick from out of nowhere as KOFI GOES OVER THE TOP ROPE! Gable begins to get fired up, as the fans continue with their frenzy of cheers for this crazy tag team action!

    Two...

    Three...

    Four...

    Woods runs over to both of his partners, as he motions for them to get up- and Gable gets up on the turnbuckle, as this is his third attempt at going aerial. Whilst everybody is slowly getting back up to their feet, they all look up in shock with the referee stopping his count as Gable launches...


    (Gable = Reigns)

    DIVING CROSSBODY TO EVERYBODY!!!!! EVERYBODY outside the ring goes down, including Xavier Woods as the fans are going nuts- and the fans chant THIS IS AWESOME- over and over again as the atmosphere is unreal tonight!!!

    Five...

    Six...

    And despite everybody being down- luckily for Gable, he didn't hit the outside of the ring as badly as the others, therefore he is still moving! Gable notices the referee counting, and he immediately helps Jordan back up to his feet- as Gable puts Jordan back into the ring.

    Seven...

    Gable looks down at Big E- knowing full well that the title won't change hands if American Alpha win via count-out, therefore he picks Big E back up to his feet, and helps him get back to the ring. Gable enters the ring again- as he drapes Jordan's arm over Big E's body, and the referee counts. One! Two! BUT BIG E KICKS OUT AT TWO!! The fans respond in awe as the referee forces Gable to head behind the apron, as he does so.

    Gable screams and shouts for his partner to tag him in- as Jordan slowly crawls over to his partner like a turtle. Jordan looks to get his partner back into the match, as Kofi can be seen getting up back onto the apron on The New Day's side! Both Jordan & Big E slowly go to crawl over to the partners as the fans wait in anticipation for the tags to come in... AND JORDAN TAGS GABLE IN... WHILST BIG E TAGS KOFI IN TOO!

    And now, it's on again! Kofi charges at Gable with a Roundhouse Kick immediately, but Gable uses his smart ground work as he goes on the ground and rolls under Kofi's legs- and he GRABS Kofi's other leg before throwing it onto the floor as Kofi hits the canvas... ANKLE LOCK TO KOFI! The fans cheer as Gable has the ankle lock locked in- and Cole questions whether Kofi will tap?! Gable increases the pressure as Ranallo says that we might have NEW Tag Team Champions- but Gable's ankle lock is broken up when Big E enters back into the picture- and he BLASTS Gable with a HUGE Clothesline! Gable hits the ground, as Jordan also enters back into the ring as he looks to hit Big E with a German Suplex... but Big E wriggles out of it before pushing Jordan towards the ropes. Jordan turns around... RUNNING SPLASH FROM BIG E!! Jordan goes over the top rope again- as Big E turns around.

    And the fans chant 'NEW! DAY ROCKS!' as Big E & Kofi turn their attention back to Gable. Big E immediately grabs hold of Gable, and he lifts Gable onto his shoulders as the champions have the momentum! Ranallo says that this could be it- as Kofi immediately gets up onto the top rope. Big E nods at Kofi in approval as Kofi launches with Gable on Big E's shoulders...



    MIDNIGHT HOUR FROM THE NEW DAY!!! The fans cheer loudly as Woods goes absolutely crazy for his partners outside the ring! Ranallo says that it looks to be another day at the top for The New Day as Kofi goes for the cover as the referee counts... One! Two! THREE! AND THE NEW DAY RETAIN!!

    JOJO: YOUR WINNERS AND STILL THE WWE RAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS... THE NEW DAY!!

    The fans begin to cheer loudly, as Xavier Woods quickly runs over to the timekeepers area to grab hold of the new Raw Tag Team Championship belts! Woods joins Kofi in the ring, as does Big E- and the three men look absolutely thrilled to have won the match. Big E & Kofi are clearly full of fatigue and joy, due to the hard-fought match.

    The New Day begin to shimmy in the ring, with the tag titles in hand as the fans chant 'NEW! DAY ROCKS!' loudly. On the other hand, Chad Gable looks disappointed with the fact that his team lost as he sits in the corner. Jason Jordan heads into the ring, also disappointed- but he tries to console his tag team partner as the two men try to stay positive.

    As The New Day continue to dance around, they turn around- and they notice that American Alpha aren't feeling the same vibe as them. The New Day begin to talk with each other, before their music stops. They walk over to American Alpha, as Jordan & Gable look up at the champions. The New Day nod their heads in approval, as American Alpha pick themselves back up.

    Kofi & Big E offer their hands out as American Alpha look on, and the fans begin to cheer. American Alpha look to the fans, who chant 'YES!' over and over again- with Graves stating that Gable & Jordan have earned The New Day's respect tonight. Gable & Jordan nod in approval as well, before shaking The New Day's hand to a huge pop from the crowd. Kofi & Big E then raise Gable & Jordan's arms in the air- to signal that they were ALL winners in the ring tonight, as Brooklyn continues to cheer.

    Ranallo says that American Alpha might have lost, but they CAN'T be disappointed with their performance tonight. Cole agrees, as he states that American Alpha made their PPV debut- and they were the tag team who took The New Day to their absolute limit. Graves to talk, but he says that we are going to go live in the back as there is some commotion in the backstage area!



    As a camera crew catches up with the action we are shown Kane and Braun Strowman brawling backstage in a tight hallway as both men crash and ram each other into chairs, ladders, tables and anything else in the way! Jim Ross yells for anyone and anything to get out of the way of these two monsters! "JBL" says that the match is done with and yet these two men continue the fight backstage! Booker says it's going down and they're going to destroy the Barclays centre from within if these two are not stopped.

    Kane and Braun are trading blows in the centre of the hallway before Kane blocks an attempt and fires back with an uppercut before pulling up his glove and slamming it across the throat of Braun and tightening the grip. Braun cuts Kane's arm away before kneeing Kane in the stomach and then driving him back first into some ladders and poles that were piled up sending them flying across the backstage area as they clatter to the floor and the sound of the crash rings around the arena.

    Braun then drags up Kane and looks to throw him across a set up table that was set up for catering but Kane elbows Braun to the temple and then swings the "Monster Among Men" across the table as Braun thunders into the table, sending food and drinks flying everywhere! "The Big Red Machine" then flips the table over on top of Kane before picking up a steel chair and slamming it across the back of Braun.

    Kane then lines up one more strike but before he can start swinging at Braun once more. Various security members surround both Kane and Braun and soon Shane McMahon enters the camera shot and ask's Kane to put down the steel chair and step back. Kane hesitates but Shane reaffirms his demand and this time says it with an even more serious tone. Shane says that their match is over! They can't keep fighting backstage and causing chaos in the Barclays Centre! Braun then stands up, throwing the table and walking right in front of Kane when Shane orders the security to step in the middle as they do so quickly.

    Shane then shouts "Enough! Enough!" He says he will deal this on Smackdown Live but tonight it's about Summerslam and to make sure that this does not carry on. He's ordering Braun and Kane to be escorted out of the building and if their conflict continues, then both men will be suspended indefinably! The security then separate both Kane and Braun in opposite directions and escort them out of the building as Shane just shakes his head at the carnage as the live camera fades and the footage returns back to the arena.



    The camera pans back to the commentary tables where both the Raw and Smackdown Live broadcast teams are shown. Jim Ross says that it’s time for the match that many have been waiting for, It’s the Franchise vs the Phenomenal One! John Cena vs AJ Styles! Michael Cole says that we are about to renew a rivalry that arguably brought AJ Styles to superstardom level here in the WWE! “JBL” says that these two men are in the prime of their careers and this one is a rematch of a lifetime! “JBL” says that he’s never ever bet against “big match John” but he says there is no one better then AJ Styles in the world today! Corey Graves then reminds us that AJ Styles won the first match, but he needed the assistance of the Club, this time, AJ has given his word that he’s going to do this alone and I think John Cena proves why he’s been the man for so many years and comes out on top tonight!

    The Titantron then goes live and a video package begins to play. It showcases John Cena’s rise in the WWE and his win’s over numerous stars and “names” of the business. Beating people like Kurt Angle, Shawn Michaels, The Rock, Batista, Randy Orton and CM Punk.

    The voiceover states that John Cena is the face that runs the place! At the top of his game, everyone seemingly beaten and defeated.

    The Video package then skips, and the Royal Rumble clock can be heard, and it counts down till it reaches one and the buzzer sounds! The package then shows AJ Styles debuting and then shows highlights from his career within the WWE before forming the Club with Gallows & Anderson and beating John Cena at Money In the Bank.

    The Voiceover then asks if we are seeing a changing of the guard? It asks if theirs a new face to run the place?

    The package then turns grainy and in black and white as it shows AJ along with Anderson & Gallows now as the Bullet Club running rough shot around the WWE.

    The voiceover asks if anyone can stop the Bullet Club and its leader, AJ Styles?

    The package then skips once more and the colour returns as John Cena’s them plays in the background. It shows the Cena Promo from Raw, calling out AJ Styles and challenging him to a match at SummerSlam to prove that he can do it on his own and prove who’s the better man once and for all! It then shows AJ Styles agreeing to the match and saying that he will beat Cena on his own! The package then ends with the contract signing on Smackdown Live and showing the harsh words exchanged from their promo. It finishes with the contract haven been signed and the two facing-off as the video package ends.
    JOJO: This next match is set for one fall and it is the Inter-Promotional Raw and Smackdown Live match of the Franchise vs the Phenomenal One! Introducing first! Representing Raw and Hailing from West Newbury, Massachusetts! He is the fifteen-time World Champion! The face that runs the place! The Franchise, JOOHNNNNNN CEEENNNAAAAA!!

    THE TIME IS NOW!!

    Aside from an early pop from the crowd and cheers from the families in attendance the Brooklyn crowd quickly drown out Cena’s theme and do a rendition of their own remix as they begin chanting and singing “JOHN CENAAA SUUCCKKKSSS!” Cena steps out on to the stage and begins to smile, putting over the crowd noise and telling the camera that he’s fired up and it’s go time! Cena then flashes his towel with the iconic “Hustle, Loyalty & Respect” displayed across it before running down the ramp and entering the ring where 70/30% of the negative response from the crowd continues. Cena rips off his shirt, takes of his chain and kisses it before handing it to ringside and chucking the shirt out towards the crowd as there’s a large cheer breaking out from the boo’s as those in close attendance fight to grab the shirt and future piece of memorabilia from John Cena.

    JOJO: And his opponent! Representing Smackdown Live and hailing from Gainesville, Georgia! Smackdown Lives number one draft pick! Representing and the leader of the Bullet Club! He is the Phenomenal One! A! J! STYYYLLLEESSSSSSS!

    PHENOMENAL!!!

    The Brooklyn crowd go crazy as the theme of AJ sounds from the speakers. One thing noticeable is AJ coming out to his own theme, missing are the Bullet Club colours and attire. There is no sign of Gallows or Anderson and AJ makes a point to tell the camera that he’s on his own tonight and he’s going to prove to everyone that he’s the man around here! AJ hits his pose before walking down the ramp and completely ignoring the pleas from the crowd to claps hands. Styles struts down the ramp, circles around ringside before entering the ring and again hitting his pose as the crowd pop once more. AJ then slides of his jacket and teases that he’s going to throw it to the crowd as they begin to cheer and get ready to leap up, but AJ instead drops the jacket over the ropes and to the outside of the ring before laughing and pointing to Cena, mouthing that’s his gimmick.

    The Referee then brings John Cena and AJ Styles to the middle of the ring and it’s electric in the Barclays Centre as the crowd anticipate the start of the match. The official goes over some final instructions as Cena and AJ begin to trash talk. Both men then take a step back before the Referee calls for the bell and the match is underway! DING! DING! DING!



    Match Seven: “The Franchise” John Cena vs “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles.

    Finish: The match started with a long stare down and some trash talk as both men circled the ring and soaked in the atmosphere as their respective commentary teams hyped up why their man was going to win the match. Raw behind Cena while Smackdown was firmly behind AJ Styles. The two men would then take the centre of the ring and the trash talking would seem to intensify, both men clearly more emotional as anger etched across their faces. Suddenly it’s on! AJ and Cena begin to trade blows and the crowd explode with cheers as both men begin to throw down! Each man hits the other with big right hands and the crowd cheer AJ’s punches while the majority boo Cena’s.

    AJ!
    CENA!
    AJ!
    CENA!
    AJ!
    CENA!

    John Cena then blocks one of AJ’s punches before throwing a combo of his own. Cena then whips AJ into the ropes and looks to back body Styles to the canvas. AJ though slides over the back of AJ and fires back with a spinning back fist, catching Cena in the jaw. AJ would then unleash a combo of his own before swinging Cena into the ropes and looking to clothesline Cena only for Cena to duck underneath and bounce back of the opposite ropes with a huge shoulder block that would knock the "Phenomenal One" down. Cena would then drop down too and would place AJ in a headlock, keeping the quicker but smaller man grounded on the canvas. Cena would look to tighten his grip as AJ attempted to twist out of the hold. AJ would get to his knees and would fire with a elbow to Cena’s stomach. AJ would then escape before swinging Cena into the ropes. Cena would bounce back and AJ would leap over him as the crowd cheered and then would look to nail Cena with a super-kick to the face. Cena would see it coming though and would grab AJ’s leg before pulling him and lifting him up in fireman’s carry position. This would lead to Michael Cole shouting AJ’s about to get an early ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT!! AJ though would escape and would land back on his feet, would spin around and leap in the air as Jim Ross shouted PELE KICK!! Cena though would sense it coming and would side step before catching AJ’s foot and then would look to lock in the STF as the crowd were slightly stunned by Cena reversing the Pele Kick attempt. AJ though would wriggle free, pulling himself across the canvas and escaping like a wild animal out of the ring.

    The crowd are cheering and are unanimous in enjoyment of the opening to the match. AJ is on the outside looking at John Cena who’s looking back and is motioning that he was this close to getting AJ in the STF and would have made AJ tap out. AJ smiles and says "you’re dreaming, John. You will not beat me! I’m the new face that runs the place!" Cena then tells AJ to get in the ring but the "Phenomenal One" takes his time, circling the ring and only entering at the 9th count of the Referee Official to break it up before exiting the ring once more.

    The match would then continue for 10-12 minutes of solid action resembling their previous match at Money in the Bank with both men giving it everything, close falls and signature moves as the crowd would chant “THIS IS AWESOME!” many times throughout the action. The commentary teams would put over their roster representatives but would be forced to praise the opponent many times due to the ability of both men and the classic match they’re having once again.

    At this point the action would be taking place on the outside as AJ would be hitting Cena with forearms before swinging Cena into the steel turnbuckle and following up with a clothesline knocking down the fifteen-time World Champion. AJ would then look at the steal steps and the crowd would begin to cheer as Booker T would question what AJ is thinking here? He reminds us that this is not a no holds barred match. Corey says that maybe AJ is coming to the understanding that he can’t beat Cena tonight and is going to get DQ’d? Jim Ross says that AJ is always thinking and always appears one step ahead of his opponents, he says that no doubt the "Phenomenal One" has a plan! AJ then rips away the top steps and begins to drag out the larger ones. He places the steps in front of the ramp before dragging up Cena and firing at him with right hands. AJ then knocks down Cena once more and places Cena on to the steel steps and then enters the ring, sliding underneath the ropes. AJ then looks out towards the crowd and the excitement is building! The Brooklyn crowd sensing that AJ is about to do something crazy! Cole says what’s AJ got in mind here? He’s in the ring and Cena is laid out on the steps.. Surely he’s not going to..

    But before Michael Cole can even finish his words, there’s a raw from the crowd and AJ leaps up using the top rope and springs off the top rope from the ring to the outside crashing down on top of John Cena with the..



    MAMMA MIA!!! 450 SPLASH FROM AJ STYLES!! Shouts Mauro Renallo as the crowd pop shouting “HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!” over and over. Jim Ross confirms the news as the replay shows AJ Styles hitting the 450 springboard splash from the ring to the outside on to the steel steps. AJ feels the full force as he wriggles around in agony while holding his stomach and rib cage. John Cena is completely out and AJ knows it. He tries to scramble up and begins to drag Cena but he’s a dead weight and the Referee has already reached 7 as he continues his count out. AJ has a choice to make, save the match or risk it by trying to drag Cena and hopefully make it before the 10 count. AJ drags the lifeless Cena and gets close to the ring but with the Referee now at 9. AJ sprints into the ring and then exits again to break up the count. He eventually gets Cena back in the ring and goes for the cover with “JBL” speculating that this match could be over right here! One! Two!

    Kick out! Cena kicking out before the three! Graves would go on to say that AJ lost vital seconds after the 450 splash because Cena was a dead weight and positioned on the outside and that AJ wasted time that he had too in saving the match and stopping the count out. AJ would get back up and would exit the ring, standing on the ring apron. He would then adjust his elbow pad and the commentary team knew what was coming next. AJ would beg for Cena to stand up and eventually John Cena would stumble up. AJ would then once again spring into life and would leap off the top rope with the aim of driving his forearm into the face of Cena!

    PHENOMENAL FORE- NOOOOOOOO! Shouted Jim Ross. Cena would catch AJ Styles on his shoulders in a fireman carry and would re-adjust before attempting to lift AJ up for the "AA" as the crowd would boo. AJ though would begin to struggle, and Cena was losing his grip. Cena instead would lift up AJ and drop him face and next first onto the top rope- choking the “Phenomenal One” as he was caught up in the ropes. AJ would then bounce back off and Cena would boot AJ into the stomach before lifting him up once more in position for the AA.

    ATTITUDE ADJUSMENT TIME! GET READY! Shouted Cole but once again AJ would wriggle free, dropping down behind Cena and pushing him towards the ropes. Cena though would think fast and would leap of the second rope and catch AJ with the..



    ..SPRINGBOARD CUTTER FROM CENA OUTTA' NOWHERE! Shouted "JBL" as he admits that this could be a game changer from the man they call the franchise! Renallo says that until now, Cena has been unable to land his finishing move that has seen him win many big matches with. Jim Ross agree's and says that AJ Styles has been snake like, wriggling out of the attempted AA's but got caught with that one and he could be out right here!

    Cena hooks the legs and goes for the cover! One! Two! Thre-NO! AJ kicks out before the three count and Cena nods his head, smiling, almost like he was expecting it. John though wastes no time and grabs back up AJ, firing away with right hands. He swings him into the ropes before looking to catch him with a clothesline on a rebound. AJ duck’s underneath before firing with a side kick to the stomach. AJ then turns around and leaps up with a PELE KICK!! AJ’s boot crashes against the head of Cena and knocks him down. Styles then goes for the cover, but John Cena is able to roll out of the ring and tries to shake away the cob webs from the Pele Kick. Styles back in the ring stands back up, rushes the ropes and then sprints across the ring before leaping through the middle ropes like a missile crashing into the “Franchise” John Cena with a Suicide Dive!!

    Cole says that AJ Styles has put his body on the line tonight and has done so again with that suicide dive crashing into John Cena! Booker says that AJ is going to do whatever it takes to prove that he’s the man now and at the moment- you can’t argue with it because he’s in control of the match! AJ crashed into Cena with real force, knocking him into the crowd barricade as those in the front row moved back a little in concern that Cena was going to come flying over the top on to them. AJ would get up and would be clearly in pain, his body being put on the line completely. AJ would drag up Cena and would rest him on the crowd barricade before unleashing Flair like chops! “Woohhoooooo!” each one was greeted by the crowd as the next one lit up and stung the chest of John Cena more and more.

    AJ would then grab John Cena by the head and shorts and would roll him back into the ring. AJ would then leap up on to the apron and would once more adjust his elbow pad. AJ would then shout for Cena to get back up and once he did, AJ would leap into the air, springing of the top rope and would look to take off Cena’s head with the Phenomenal Forearm! Cena though would side step AJ and Styles would be forced to readjust and would land on his feet. AJ would then spin around but would be would greeted by a shoulder barge from Cena off the ropes and another one as AJ stood up. The majority of the crowd are already booing- they knows what’s coming next. AJ would then get back up and would take a swing at Cena who would duck underneath before lifting him up bringing him crashing down to the mat. Cena then stands over AJ and begins to smile as the crowd boo’s intensify. Cena then shrugs his shoulders and smiles again before running the ropes, stopping to brush off his shoulder and drop down with the fist to the face of Styles!

    FIVE KNUCKLE SHUFFLE shouted Cole as he said it was vintage Cena! Cena then stands back up it’s his turn to shout AJ to get up. After a few seconds, a groggy AJ Styles would reach his feet but would walk right into the..



    …ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT!! Screamed Jim Ross as AJ bounced off the canvas back first. John Cena would then scramble across the ring, hooked the leg and the count was on! One! Two! Thr-Noooo! The respective commentary teams were stunned as Cena looks up at the Referee and asks if the count was correct. The Referee confirms the two count and Cena reacts. He rolls over AJ and grips him before showing incredible strength and dead lifting him off the canvas and on too his shoulders and for the second time in a row! ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT!! Jim Ross hails the incredible strength of John Cena as Corey Graves shouts it’s got to be over now, nobody kicks out of two AA’s, not even someone Phenomenal like AJ Styles! Cena hooks the legs and tries again! ONE! TWO! THRE-NOOOOOO! AJ KICKS OUT AGAIN! Renallo asks what Cena has too do to keep AJ down and win this match! “JBL” says he can’t believe it, AJ kicking out of the AA twice!

    John Cena cannot believe it. He looks visibly shocked and disheartened as he holds his head in his hands and mouths “what have I got to do?” as he looks at AJ who is beginning to stir. John Cena then grabs AJ up and picks him up before driving him back first into the turnbuckle. Cena then hooks AJ up on to the top rope and begins to climb. He then lifts and places him on his shoulders as the crown see what John Cena is planning and react with boos. Booker asks if Cena is going to deliver the AA from the turnbuckle? Cole confirms it and says that AJ has done amazingly well to survive two but if Cena can get the third then it’s over, there is no coming back!

    Cena hesitates for a moment as AJ begins to wriggle and fights back by clawing at Cena’s face. Cena then drops to a seated position on the top turnbuckle and AJ slides down onto the ring apron. AJ then wows the crowd as he uses the top rope to spring up, latch onto the Cena and bring him down with the..



    ...HURRICANRANA FROM THE TOP ROPE! UNIQUE OFFENCE FROM AJ STYLES ONCE AGAIN!! Shouted Jim Ross as the crowd were wowed by the "Phenomenal One's" ability. The replays are shown on the "tron" as the Brooklyn crowd chant "THAT WAS AWESOME" over and over. AJ and Cena are down, both men are running on fumes as they lay on the canvas exhausted. The Referee checks on both men before both eventually start to move. They both use each other get up, both are shaky on their feet but they're up! Cena then fires the shot, a strong right hand as Styles fires one right back. Both men begin to exchange once more in the centre of the ring but there's no real power or energy behind their strikes.

    Graves says that both men are running on empty as "JBL" agree's and says they're both having to dig real deep at the moment. AJ is able to block a right hand from Cena before replying with two quick punches to the jaw, a low calf kick and then a spinning back first which seems to catch Cena clean and knocks him back against the ropes. As Cena comes bouncing back Styles would kick Cena in the stomach and then lift him in position for the...



    ...STYLES CLASH! AJ STYLES WITH THE STYLES CLASH!! Said Jim Ross as the Brooklyn crowd would pop for the finishing move from AJ. Styles would then swivel and would roll Cena on to his shoulders as the Referee scrambled across the ring, dropped down and counted the pin attempt! ONE! TWO! THRE-NOOOOOO! CENA KICKS OUT, JOHN CENA KICKS OUT OF THE STYLES CLASH!! says Corey Graves and the crowd are stunned. AJ is furious and begins screaming at the Referee before pounding the ring canvas in frustration. AJ thought doesn't dwell on it any longer though and instead rolls across the ring and underneath the ropes. AJ then stands on the ring apron, pulling himself up. AJ for the third time readjusts the elbow pad and looks to take flight once more! He springs in the air and..



    ...PHENOMENAL FOREARM FROM STYLES!! Yelled Mauro Renallo as AJ finally lands the move and nails Cena at the third attempt. CENA IS OUT!! AJ WITH THE COVER!! Shouted Booker as AJ would hook the legs of John Cena and with the Brooklyn crowd counting along, AJ Styles would pick up the win! ONE! TWO! THREE!

    JOJO: AND YOUR WINNER IS... AJ STYLES!

    The crowd would pop as the ring bell sounded to end the match and AJ's name was announced by Jojo at ringside as the match winner. The commentary teams would put over the match as they would be in agreement that both men gave it everything and might have just stole the show here at SummerSlam! They also agree that every time AJ and Cena share a ring, it's magic and both men put on another classic.

    The Referee raises the hand of AJ Styles who is barely standing, clearly in pain. AJ though points to himself and tells the crowd that he's the face that runs the place now! AJ then smiles before noticing that John Cena is standing up. AJ positions like he's about to strike John Cena from behind but instead spins him around and offers out his hand. Cena is downbeat and just looks at the hand of Styles as the crowd are mixed. John Cena then goes to grab AJ's arm when the Bullet Club leader pulls it away and begins to smile. Cena looks at AJ and AJ appears to be revelling in the Cena loss as he screams at him that he's the face that runs the place now! John Cena just stares back before nodding his head, almost accepting the defeat and that AJ is now the man.

    Jim Ross and Cole both agree that AJ is showing to be a bad loser and subtracting his hand is disrespectful to the legendary and future Hall of Famer, John Cena. "JBL" says that we have just seen a changing of a guard and John Cena needs to accept that AJ is now the franchise player of the WWE!! Styles would exit the ring and would make his way up the ramp. As he reached the top of the stage, he would be confronted by Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows who would hug their Bullet Club leader and would revel in the victory. All three men would throw up the "2-SWEET" as the hardcore fans would cheer the sight of the Bullet Club. Back in the ring and it's a completely different story. John Cena is distraught, shaking his head as he pulls off his armband and holds it.



    John Cena then leaves in the armband in the middle of the ring and exits. He reaches halfway up the ramp before turning to the fans and mouthing "Thank you" to the fans. There's mostly cheers now from the fans as they realise the effort that Cena put into the match and that he's clearly upset. There's also an undertone feeling that this could mean more and the commentary team begin to speculate if Cena is done? Michael Cole says he's known Cena for a long time and has called most of his matches. He says that if this is the last time, it's been a pleasure Cena! Jim Ross echo's the same and praises John Cena's career and says that sadly, all good things come to an end and he suspects that Cena has already made up his mind with this loss. We get one final shot of an emotional John Cena who turns and exits behind the curtain before the show moves on.



    We head over to the Raw announcing team as Ranallo says that it's time for a big match with some big stakes! Cole says that the Intercontinental Championship will be defended in a Last Chance Match as The Miz will defend the title against The Swiss Cyborg in Cesaro! Graves says that both men will be fighting for their lives because if they lose- they won't get the chance to compete for the ICT title again, as long as one of them is champion! However, before the match begins- we have a video package to continue the hype!

    1st December 2014 - WWE Network

    The clip shows footage from Stone Cold Steve Austin's podcast on the WWE Network with Vince McMahon as the guest.

    STEVE AUSTIN: I was just talking to Cesaro backstage, a guy with a lot of physical skills, err, strong dude, great in-ring work. What's the one piece where he's not connecting?

    VINCE MCMAHON: He's not connecting yet but we hope he will. I mean, he doesn't quite have the charisma. He doesn't have quite the verbal skills as well. It may be because he's Swiss, well, I don't know, in terms of the European style.

    Clips are shown of Cesaro being with Aksana from his early days on the main roster.

    VINCE MCMAHON: The audience needs to care about you.

    We see clips of Cesaro losing matches, before it begins to fade...

    VINCE MCMAHON: At the moment, he lacks IT.

    The bombshell is dropped as the clip fully fades. And we see Cesaro in the interview room with tense music playing in the background.

    CESARO: I respect Vince and his opinions, because without him- there wouldn't be WWE today.. but at the same time? I feel like I have been proving him wrong ever since he said I couldn't connect. This whole idea that I don't connect is false in my eyes, because everytime I go out there- I get a reaction. When my music hits, the fans go nuts and they raise their Cesaro Section signs.

    The Cesaro Section are seen holding up their signs to show their support.

    CESARO: I've been chasing the Intercontinental Championship ever since I made my return from injury. Look at guys like The Rock, Steve Austin & Triple H. They are three legends in the WWE.. and before they won became World Champions- they were Intercontinental Champions at some point in their career.

    Clips are shown of Triple H, The Rock & Steve Austin winning the Intercontinental Championship belt before we cut back to Cesaro.

    CESARO: I want to head towards that legendary path- and I KNOW that I can do it.

    Clips are shown of Cesaro winning the Tag Team Championship belts with Tyson Kidd. We also see several clips of Cesaro winning the US Championship, as well as Cesaro winning the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

    The footage then cuts to The Miz in the interview room.


    THE MIZ: I am the man that has made this Intercontinental title, the most prestigious title in the WWE today. I have made this title relevant, I have put everything into defending this title like a true man. Cesaro, you are NOT going to take that away from me.

    We see clips of The Miz successfully defending his title against the likes of Zack Ryder & Darren Young.

    THE MIZ: You can't win ANY match with the help of the fans, because I haven't needed them from the moment I came into this business. I have goddamn proved it by main eventing Wrestlemania... and by being WWE Champion! I have defeated a top superstar like John Cena on the biggest show of them all...

    We see multiple clips of The Miz being on the Grandest Stage of Them All, winning the Money in the Bank Ladder Match as well as becoming WWE Champion- with a little girl from the crowd looking on miserably as Miz celebrated cashing in.

    THE MIZ: But what has Cesaro done? He hasn't ever grabbed the brass ring in his miserable career!

    Payback - May 1st 2016 - Cesaro vs. The Miz (c)- ICT Championship Match

    We see Cesaro having The Miz locked in the Crossface- before Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens began to brawl on the apron. The Miz tapped out, but the referee was distracted by Zayn & Owens. This led to Cesaro knocking Zayn & Owens off the apron, before The Miz takes advantage by rolling Cesaro up- and grabbing the tights to get the win.

    THE MIZ: I have NEVER taken any short-cuts to retain this title.. I have defended this title fair and square like a true man. It doesn't matter HOW I defend this title.. all that matters is that I defend it- and I WIN.

    Extreme Rules - May 22nd 2016 - Cesaro vs. Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn vs. The Miz (c)- ICT Championship Match

    THE MIZ: In the record books.. nobody will see how I won the title. All that it will say.. is that The Miz has defeated Cesaro over and over and over again.

    Smackdown - May 26nd 2016 - Cesaro vs. The Miz (c)- ICT Championship Match

    The Miz is shown bringing 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 nailing the SKF and covering to get the win, once again- preventing Cesaro from winning.

    THE MIZ: I want to know why this match at Summerslam is MY Last Chance?! This stipulation should only apply to Cesaro, NOT ME. Cesaro is the man that has constantly come up short in his quest to win this title. I have said this before- and I will say it again... Cesaro is absolutely NOTHING compared to me.

    Images of Cesaro looking distraught over his constant losses for the ICT Championship are shown.

    MICHAEL COLE: What's it going to take for Cesaro to finally become Intercontinental Champion?

    Raw - July 25th 2016 - Erick Rowan vs. Cesaro vs. Darren Young vs. Sami Zayn- Fatal 4 Way Match- Winner challenges The Miz for the ICT Championship

    MAURO RANALLO: MAMMA MIA!! CESARO IS GOING TO SUMMERSLAM!

    The clip then shows Cesaro celebrating and looking chuffed following his hard-fought victory. We then see The Miz with Maryse backstage as they were interviewed by Charly Caruso.

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

    Clips of Cesaro absolutely decimating superstars are shown.

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

    We see the video of Cesaro standing on the ring on his own the following week, speaking about The Miz.

    CESARO: 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.

    The Miz' music plays as Miz comes out with his wife Maryse- and Miz goes on a verbal onslaught towards 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.

    Footage of Cesaro's looking distraught over his losses are shown again- The Miz continues his onslaught of shots on the mic.

    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.

    We see clips of Cesaro celebrating with The Cesaro Section.

    THE MIZ: 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?

    Sound of glass shattering is heard as Warriors by Imagine Dragons plays in the background.

    SONG: As a child, you would wait and watch from far away
    But you always knew that you'd be the one
    To work while they all play
    In youth, you'd lay awake at night and scheme
    Of all the things that you would change
    But it was just a dream


    NARRATOR: A Cyborg on a quest for success...

    SONG: Here we are, don't turn away now
    We are the warriors that built this town


    NARRATOR:
    Will the man on a mission finally achieve his goal?

    We see footage of Cesaro getting fired up in the ring, hitting the Neutralizer and defeating opponents.

    CESARO: I am going to DETHRONE The Miz to accomplish what I have been trying to do for the past year... and I WILL take the Intercontinental Championship home with me!

    SONG: Here we are, don't turn away now
    We are the warriors that built this town, from dust

    NARRATOR:
    Or will the A-Lister prove that there really is no hope?

    We see footage of The Miz also getting fired up in the ring, hitting the SKF and also defeating opponents.

    THE MIZ: I will make sure that you NEVER compete for the Intercontinental Championship again as long as I am the champion! Because I'm The Miz... and I'M AWESOME!!

    NARRATOR:
    Everything will be on the line... but who will come out on top?

    A split-screen appears- as one side shows Cesaro standing over The Miz with the Intercontinental Championship with the fans cheering and roaring for The Swiss Cyborg. The other side shows The Miz standing over Cesaro with the ICT Championship with the crowd booing loudly as the video package comes to an end
    Ranallo talks about how this match highlights Cesaro's intentions to become Intercontinental Championship- and that ambition just proves how important this title is. On the other hand, The Miz wants to shatter Cesaro's hopes and continue his reign as the champion. Cole agrees, and says that Cesaro wants to be amongst the greats- but so does The Miz, and neither men can afford to lose this match right now. Graves says that one man is going to leave this match a broken man.

    We head back to the arena, and the fans are seen cheering, with the video package clearly increasing the excitement.

    MIRACLE

    The lights go out in the arena- and the crowd in Brooklyn ERUPT with a big pop. Many fans can be seen holding up their Cesaro Section signs to show their approval for the challenger. Cesaro comes out looking suited and booted- as he stands on the stage with a single spotlight on him. Cole says that this match will be make or break for Cesaro! Cesaro rips off his suit in style before throwing it in the air, as he walks down the aisle. He slaps the hands of the fans before making his way to the ring. Cesaro raises his fists in the air as he looks confident- and he waits for the champion to come out.

    The lights go out again, this time- for the champion's entrance.

    "QUIET ON THE SET...

    Can we please have quiet on the set?"

    Images of Hollywood begin to shuffle on the TitanTron before there's a pause...

    I CAME TO PLAY

    The Barclays Center responds with boos for the Intercontinental Champion himself as The Miz comes out with the Hollywood style entrance. The Miz is out by himself, as he stands on the stage wearing a Phantom of the Opera style half-mask on his face. Graves says that the champion has a huge task tonight, and he's looking to end Cesaro's dream of becoming ICT Champion. Cole reminds us that Maryse isn't in The Miz' tonight as she is banned from ringside, which means that there will be no excuses for either men regardless of the result.

    The A-Lister makes his way to the ring as Cesaro looks on. Miz enters the ring, looking as cocky as ever- and he flaunts the ICT title around Cesaro's face as Cesaro doesn't look fazed. Miz hands the title to the referee- as the two men are standing on separate sides.

    JOJO: This match is scheduled for one fall- and it is for the Intercontinental Championship! This bout will be contested under a Last Chance stipulation, meaning that the loser will not be able to compete for the ICT Championship again as long as the latter is the champion.

    The fans cheer in response.

    JOJO: Introducing first, the challenger... from Lucerne, Switzerland. He is 'The Swiss Cyborg'... CESARO!!

    The fans erupt in approval for The Swiss Cyborg as Cesaro does his signature motion again by raising his fists into the air- and we can see the Swiss tape on Cesaro's shoulder as well. However, The Miz clearly doesn't approve.

    JOJO: And his opponent... from Hollywood, California. He is the Intercontinental Champion, and the 'A-Lister'... THE MIZ!!

    Brookyln responds with LOUD boos for the champion as The Miz smirks, not giving a damn about what the people think. The referee raises the title in the air, as the opponents stare at each other- and the referee calls for the bell! DING! DING! DING!



    Match Eight: Cesaro vs. The Miz (c)- Last Chance Match for the Intercontinental Championship

    The bell rings- and it's ON!!! The match immediately begins as Cesaro & The Miz charge at each other with vicious shots to the head! It goes CESARO! MIZ! MIZ! CESARO! CESARO! MIZ! CESARO! Cole points out how this feud has clearly reached the personal level where the two men want to beat the hell out of each other! Cesaro goes for another shot the head, but he misses when The Miz grabs hold of Cesaro's fist- and the champion uses his other hand to throw a shot to the taped shoulder of Cesaro as he connects!

    Cesaro takes a step back before running towards The Miz with intentions of nailing a Clothesline to the champion- but Miz sees it coming as he grabs hold of Cesaro's shoulder, and he manages to use his strength to take Cesaro down with an Arm Drag! Cesaro is down, as Miz begins to repeatedly smash Cesaro's taped shoulder with vicious kicks! He hits another kick, and another one! Ranallo says that The Miz seems hell-bent on snapping Cesaro's shoulder as Cesaro screams in pain. Graves points out how Cesaro's shoulder is crucial for The Swiss Cyborg to nail his big finishers, and Miz is making sure from the very start that the challenger is unable to hit those moves. Miz continues with ANOTHER kick, and the referee tells Miz that he needs to stop- as Miz eventually does so.

    This leads to The Miz grabbing Cesaro's shoulder, and he begins to twist it as Cesaro continues to shout. The champion stops, as The Miz grabs Cesaro by the head, and he goes to lift him up to his feet- and he takes steps back to the corner before running towards Cesaro again with a Big Boot to the shoulder... which connects- as Cesaro stumbles all the way over to the corner! The Miz walks over to Cesaro as he has the momentum. Miz shouts 'You will NEVER beat me' and he SLAPS Cesaro in the face as the fans boo! The champion takes steps back to the corner of the other side of the ring and he charges towards Cesaro again with a headbutt... but a cautious Cesaro sees it coming... and he rushes out of the way which leads to The Miz missing the target and nailing the turnbuckle with his head instead.

    The Miz screams in pain- and Cesaro walks back over to the champion... and he nails a Standing Uppercut to the face of The Miz! The fans cheer... and Cesaro hits ANOTHER Uppercut to his opponent, and another one, and another one! Graves states that Cesaro has targeted Miz' head with a series of standing Uppercuts which might benefit the challenger in the long run. Ranallo points out how Cesaro has different variations of Uppercuts in his move-set. Cesaro looks to take advantage by grabbing The Miz and seating his opponent onto the top rope. Cesaro gets up the turnbuckle himself, as the fans begin to cheer in anticipation for a potential Super-Plex. Ranallo says that if Cesaro hits it, this will have a huge impact on the match! Cesaro goes for the Super-Plex... but The Miz does his hardest to wriggle out of it.

    As Cesaro begins to lose grip... The Miz begins to repeatedly punch Cesaro in the face. And he hits him in the face again as Cesaro has lost grip- leading to The Miz hitting Cesaro with a vicious ELBOW to the face! However, Cesaro still doesn't fall off the turnbuckle... but he stumbles back enough for Miz to see Cesaro's shoulder, and he uses this as an opportunity as The Miz grabs Cesaro's shoulder, and he twists it so much that Cesaro jumps, and the challenger forces himself off the turnbuckle as The Miz lets go! Cole says that this is a clever move from Cesaro as The Miz continues to target Cesaro's shoulder. Cesaro winces in pain, as The Miz looks to compose himself on the top rope- but Cesaro wastes no time as he runs towards The Miz...

    DROPKICK TO THE FACE OF THE MIZ ON THE TOP ROPE!! The fans cheer loudly as Cesaro sends The Miz out of the ring, as The Miz lands hard outside the ring!! The fans chant 'CE-SARO!' loudly as Cesaro begins to fire himself up in the ring. He looks at the Brooklyn crowd, and Cole shouts that Cesaro is ready to fly! Cesaro runs from one side to another... before jumping out of the ring for a Suicide Dive... BUT CESARO MISSES!!! CESARO HAS LANDED BADLY ON HIS SHOULDER screams Cole!! The Miz moved out of the way as Graves says that could be costly! The Miz slowly picks himself up, and he BURSTS into a fit of laughter at Cesaro's miss whilst the referee begins to count.

    ONE!

    TWO!

    The Miz grabs Cesaro by the shoulder... and screams 'IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT, HUH?!' as he begins to toy with his challenger... BEFORE HE HURLS CESARO'S SHOULDER INTO THE RING POST!!! The fans respond with a huge negative reaction as Ranallo says that The Miz seems to be as dangerous as ever!!

    THREE!

    FOUR!

    The Miz looks at the Brooklyn crowd, as they begin to chant 'YOU SUCK!' loudly. Some members of the crowd begin to hold up their 'CESARO SECTION' signs, as The Miz disapproves. The Miz walks over to one of the fans, and screams "SCREW YOUR CESARO!" as the member of the crowd shouts "CESARO'S GONNA BEAT YOU!" to the champion's face! The Miz nods in approval, as the fans are cheering for that member of the crowd- but it's The Miz who gets the last laugh by SNATCHING the sign out of his hand... and TEARING it into shreds!!

    FIVE!

    SIX!

    Another huge set of boos from the crowd as the fan looks extremely upset! But The Miz has his eyes back onto the prize. He grabs Cesaro- and lifts him up, noticing the referee is counting- and he puts his opponent back into the squared-circle. Miz enters back into the ring, as he begins to unload on Cesaro with vicious kicks to the shoulder again- and the referee is forced to tell The Miz to stop as Miz eventually does so. Cesaro tries to pick himself back up, kneeling as The Miz smirks... and The Miz slaps the taste right out of Cesaro's mouth AGAIN to boos from the crowd. This leads to Cesaro getting angry and angrier... and The Miz goes for a Snap DDT as Cesaro is kneeling on the ground... but Cesaro twists and turns out of it before pushing The Miz to the other side of the ring with force.

    The Swiss Cyborg gets up- as Ranallo says that slap has seemed to fuel him a hell lot more! The Miz also gets back up, as he runs towards Cesaro... BUT CESARO ERUPTS WITH A DISCUS ELBOW TO THE FACE OF THE MIZ!! The A-List Superstar CRASHES onto the canvas as the fans cheer, and Cesaro, whilst nursing his taped shoulder, grabs hold of The Miz's head. He places The Miz' head in between his ropes as the fans begin to get riled up, and Cesaro lifts The Miz up in position for a power move...



    RICOLA BOMB TO THE MIZ!!! The fans go nuts as Cesaro seems to have hurt his shoulder a bit more- but he goes for the cover! ONE! TWO! THR- BUT THE MIZ KICKS OUT AT TWO!! Cesaro can't believe it! The shock on Cesaro's face is unreal as he thought he had it. The fans all thought he had it. The Swiss Cyborg puts his focus back onto his opponent, knowing that every minute counts as we've hit the 8 minute mark. Cesaro picks The Miz up- as he looks set to hit another power move. He places The Miz's head in between his legs again- with an attempt to finish the champion off... but The Miz manages squirm out of it rapidly! The Miz runs over to the corner, as Cesaro walks over towards him- but The Miz responds with a Discus Punch to the shoulder of Cesaro!

    The Miz then continues to punch Cesaro's shoulder before erupting with shots to Cesaro's face, as Cole talks about how Miz is looking to dismantle Cesaro's shoulder here tonight. Graves states that both men have targeted different body parts, but Miz' targeting has been more effective due to The Swiss Cyborg's bad shoulder. On the other hand, The Miz kicks Cesaro in the shoulder again as Cesaro screams in pain. The Miz goes to take advantage of a hurt Cesaro and he grabs hold of Cesaro's head...



    SWINGING INVERTED DDT TO CESARO!! Cole says Miz just planted Cesaro with the Mizard of Oz- and Ranallo states that we haven't seen that move since 2007! Cesaro landed on his head as well as his shoulder- as The Miz goes for the cover with the fans booing loudly... ONE! TWO! BUT CESARO KICKS OUT!!! A huge pop from the Brooklyn crowd as Cesaro is still in it. The Miz begins to punch the canvas in frustration, as he looks back towards Cesaro. He knows that he's still got to do a lot more- but The Miz screams at Cesaro by saying 'I'M GONNA FINISH YOU!' The Miz picks Cesaro up, and he sets him up for his finishing move... but Cesaro manages to wriggle out of it to prevent the finisher!

    This leads to Cesaro grabbing The Miz from behind and throwing him into the corner. Cesaro charges at The Miz with a Running Uppercut... and he connects! The fans cheer, as Cesaro looks to the crowd. Ranallo says that The Miz is about to be taken to Uppercut Express baby! Cesaro looks at Miz, and he responds with another Uppercut! And another uppercut! The fans are cheering as Cesaro looks set to hit one big Uppercut to seal the deal- and he goes for it... but The Miz ducks and Cesaro hits the turnbuckle instead! Cesaro winces in pain before The Miz manages to escape from the corner, and he grabs hold of Cesaro's shoulder... BEFORE SMASHING IT ONTO THE TURNBUCKLE!! The fans boo loudly, as The Miz does it again! And one more time before grabbing Cesaro's hand, and taking him to the center of the ring...



    SKULL CRUSHING FINALE TO CESARO!!! The fans boo loudly as The Miz has nailed his finisher- and Cesaro has landed badly again on his head and his shoulder. Miz wastes NO TIME as he goes for the cover... One! Two! BUT CESARO KICKS OUT AGAIN!!! Ranallo says that Cesaro has a heart of a warrior as The Miz has a stone cold look on his face. He shows absolutely no emotion whatsoever. No frustration. Graves questions what must be going through The Miz' head right now- after Cesaro just kicked out of TWO of The Miz's finishing moves. The Miz gets back up- and it looks as if he has had enough. He looks over to the announcers table...

    And The Miz exits the ring! He walks over to the timekeepers- as they are in possession of The Miz' Intercontinental Championship. The Miz shouts 'GIVE ME THE TITLE' as the timekeeper refuses... and The Miz KICKS the timekeeper in the head to boos from the crowd. The Miz grabs the title- as Cole says that The Miz has clearly had enough! The Miz rushes back into the ring, and he begins to show anger. He waits for Cesaro to get up- and the referee warns The Miz that he will be disqualified. But The Miz doesn't care. He just wants to walk out of the Barclays Center as champion.

    Cesaro eventually gets up, as Ranallo says that The Miz is taking the coward's way out. The Miz looks angrier and angrier by the second as he anticipates for Cesaro to turn around... and the referee continues to warn The Miz... and Cesaro finally turns around as The Miz charges at Cesaro to smash him in the face with the belt... BUT CESARO NAILS THE MIZ WITH A BICYCLE KICK!! The fans go nuts as Cesaro has saved himself with the title falling out of The Miz' hand- but unfortunately for The Cyborg, Cesaro has kicked The Miz into the referee as the referee goes down! And the challenger goes for the cover not knowing that there is no referee to count the pin!

    The fans begin to shout ONE! TWO! THREE!... and Cole says that if the referee was up- then Cesaro would've been the champion by now! Cesaro looks even more confused, and he notices that the referee is down. Cesaro punches the mat as he can't believe it. He grabs the referee and attempts to revive him, but to no avail! Cesaro's frustration increases... before looking over to the title which is on the floor. Cesaro glances at the title- in a light-bulb moment, as Cole says that this can't be good...

    Cesaro grabs the Intercontinental Championship belt- as he walks over to the other side of the ring. He waits for The Miz to get up as Cole says that Cesaro can't achieve his goals like this! Graves says that the temptation is there, and Cesaro is too desperate- and he's willing to go to any lengths to become champion.. The fans begin chant 'NO!' loudly- as Cesaro looks on at the crowd. He looks at the title again, before looking back at the fans. Who is he going to listen to?

    ...

    Cesaro looks at the referee- and he nods in disapproval. And the referee is slowly getting up. The referee eventually gets up- and Cesaro hands the referee the title, to a good reaction from the fans. The referee calls for the timekeeper- as the timekeeper takes the title. However, Cesaro is distracted as he wants the title out of play! Ranallo tells Cesaro to turn around as The Miz begins to sneak his way back up...

    LOW BLOW TO CESARO!!! The fans go nuts with boos as Cesaro grabs his crotch in pain- with Graves stating that Miz is looking to take the easy way out yet again. Cesaro stumbles towards The Miz' direction which leads to The Miz grabbing Cesaro- and he goes to nail another Skull Crushing Finale... but Cesaro manages to twist out of it before Cesaro explodes with a forearm shot to the face of The Miz! Cesaro hits another forearm shot, before running over to the other side, and jumping off the apron before charging towards The Miz...



    SPRINGBOARD CORKSCREW UPPERCUT TO THE MIZ!!! The entire crowd erupts as Cesaro hits another BIG Uppercut to the face of The Miz! Ranallo says that signature Uppercut is a thing of beauty- before Cesaro looks to capitalize on his momentum so far. He grabs The Miz' legs- and despite his shoulder still hurting- he looks to the crowd, and motions for the Swing as the fans respond with their approval. Cesaro lifts Miz up in the air- and you can see the pain in Cesaro's eyes as he struggles to pick the champion up- before he eventually DOES lift him up like a superman... and Miz goes SWINGING!! The fans begin to count along as Cesaro swings The Miz!

    ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NI-

    But Cesaro suddenly stops, and he lets go off The Miz whilst touching his shoulder! Cole says that this time, it looks as if Cesaro's shoulder has finally given in! Graves says that it looks like The Miz's tactics have worked, and the fact that Cesaro's shoulder isn't 100% means that The Miz has the upper hand. Cesaro looks back at The Miz- and The Miz looks unsteady from the Swing - but he still isn't out cold. Cesaro looks to take advantage again as he grabs The Miz- and he puts The A-Lister's head in between his legs to lift him up for the Neutralizer. He cracks his neck, and he lifts Miz up to neutralize him... but he can't! Ranallo says that Cesaro has hurt his shoulder so much that he can't lift Miz up for the Neutralizer, and Cesaro has no choice but to let go!

    Cole questions what Cesaro can do next as The Swiss Cyborg looks to figure out his next move... but then The Miz starts screaming at Cesaro. The Miz is kneeling, as he also looks pretty damaged from Cesaro's offence- and The Miz looks into Cesaro's eyes whilst kneeling and he laughs at him because he was unable to continue the Swing and nail the Neutralizer. Graves says that The Miz is getting into Cesaro's head- and it's so evident right now! He shouts 'YOU CAN'T BEAT ME YOU IDIOT! YOU WILL NEVER CONNECT'... as Cesaro looks on in frustration. Cesaro is getting more and more angry by the second with his face turns as red as a strawberry... before The Miz SPITS in Cesaro's face! The fans boo as Cesaro rubs The Miz's saliva off his face... before turning back to The Miz... AND Cesaro puts his taped fingers up at The Miz to a HUGE pop from the fans... BEFORE NAILING THE MIZ WITH A LOW SUPERKICK!!! The fans cheer as The Miz goes down, and Cesaro grabs hold of The Miz' legs before twisting it and locking the A-Lister in the Sharpshooter!!!



    The fans begin to cheer as Cole says that The Miz has nowhere to go, whilst Graves points out how Cesaro has a huge amount of moves in his arsenal- as he pays homage to the likes of Bret Hart & his friend Tyson Kidd! Cesaro has The Miz locked in the submission hold- in the middle of the ring as The Miz SCREAMS in agony. The Miz is trying his hardest to crawl to the ropes as Cesaro has the hold locked in TIGHT. The Miz eventually does manage to crawl- but his attempts are STOPPED as Cesaro increases the pressure!
    ...

    The Miz truly does have no way out- and the referee asks The Miz if he wants to give in. The Miz is pleading and screaming no... and Cesaro shouts 'WHO'S THE IDIOT NOW?!' as The Miz' trash talk from earlier has lit another fuse in him.

    ...

    But the pain is clearly just too much for the champion to bear. Ranallo asks could this finally be it?! As Graves says that The Miz is fighting to get out of this maneuver! But The Miz has nowhere to go- but he's HESITANT to submit... but Cesaro continues to tighten the hold...

    ...

    ...

    ...

    AND THE MIZ HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO TAP OUT!!!

    JOJO: YOUR WINNER AND THE NEWWWWWWW INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION... CESARO!!!

    THE BARCLAYS CENTER HAS EXPLODED!!! CESARO HAS FINALLY DONE IT!! Ranallo screams that we have a NEW Intercontinental Champion!!! Miracle hits on the PA System as Cesaro lets go off of The Miz- and The Swiss Cyborg looks more emotional than we have ever seen him be before! The referee calls for the title, and he hands it over to Cesaro!

    Cesaro sits in the ring- and he stares at the title, knowing that all his hard work and dedication is finally paying off! Cole says that Cesaro is finally heading towards legendary status, and his intentions of following the footsteps amongst the greats continues as he is the NEW Intercontinental Champion! Cesaro looks up at the fans, and he RAISES the title in the air as the fans are loving it. Ranallo talks about how THIS is what the Intercontinental Championship is all about.




    On the other hand, The Miz has exited the ring as he is now the man that is distraught as he has his back on the steel steps- with a face of absolute disappointment, knowing that he's lost the title and he can't compete for it again. But back in the ring- Cesaro is up, and he gets up on the turnbuckle before raising the title once again as the fans cheer him on.



    The live camera heads back to the announcers table for both brands- as we see the Raw's commentary team as well as the Smackdown commentary team. Michael Cole says that it's time for the final Interpromotional match out of the two- as we have a bout that is 15 Years in the Making! Mauro Ranallo explains that we have The Beast vs. The Viper- as Raw's very own Brock Lesnar goes head to head with Randy Orton in a match that the entire WWE Universe has been waiting for. We go over to the Smackdown commentary team- as Jim Ross talks about how he has commentating matches his whole life, and he has the pleasure of announcing a true Once in a Lifetime match. JBL continues, and he says that the heat behind this rivalry had been turned up in the last 4 weeks- and this dream match will turn into reality tonight. Orton had come back from his injury, and he immediately challenged The Beast. Here's a video package to show how this rivalry brewed!

    A video package begins to play on the TitanTron as we see footage of Randy Orton's career in the WWE. We see Orton starting out in OVW, whilst making a name for himself in development. It shows all of his title wins, including his World Championship wins- as well as being the youngest world champion in WWE history. Footage is then shown of Brock Lesnar's career in the OVW, as he dominated the development scene before dominating the WWE. It showcases his world title wins as well as breaking The Undertaker's Wrestlemania streak.
    A voiceover then plays, as the narrator says 15 years in the making.

    We then cut to Randy Orton's live satellite promo from Battleground- where he speaks about returning from his injury, and challenging The Beast to a match at Summerslam! The video cuts to Paul Heyman- as he disputed Randy Orton's claims that he could beat The Beast, saying that nobody could conquer the conquerer. We then see another footage of Randy Orton invading Raw to RKO Paul Heyman from out of nowhere! It continues with the contract signing between both Orton & Lesnar as it was intense, and Orton & Lesnar took the security out before Orton nailed Lesnar with an RKO!

    The voiceover then says The Beast vs. The Viper- as we see Brock Lesnar hitting F5's and Kimura Locks on opponents as well as Randy Orton nailing RKO's & Punt Kick's on various opponents too.

    The narrator says that this is the dream match that the entire world has been waiting for, will The Beast victimise The Viper? Or will The Viper kill the legend that is Brock Lesnar?

    The video package finishes with Paul Heyman standing tall with Brock Lesnar in the ring, before the final shot shows Randy Orton doing his signature pose in the crowd.

    The camera cuts back to The Barclays Center as we see JoJo looking as dashing as ever with the announcer being set to speak.

    JOJO: This Interpromotional match is scheduled for one fall! And it is a match that is 15 Years in the Making.

    The music of Brock Lesnar blares on the PA System as Brooklyn goes NUTS for The Beast! And out comes Lesnar with his advocate in Paul Heyman, as Lesnar walks to the ring with a deadly look in his eyes- whilst his advocate swaggers behind him. Ranallo talks about how Lesnar hasn't been in the ring since Wrestlemania, but The Beast's resume speaks for itself. Graves talks about how Lesnar definitely has the advantage here, but does he has The Viper's heart? We'll see that tonight. Lesnar enters the ring, as his music stops. Fans can be heard chanting 'SUPLEX CITY!' over and over again as Heyman grins.

    JOJO: And his opponent... representing Smackdown. From St, Louis, Missouri... he is a 12 time world champion, he is The Viper... RANDYYYYYYYYYY ORTOOOOOOOOOOON!!!

    VOICES

    A HUGE POP for none other than The Viper! And out comes Randy Orton as Brooklyn cheers him on. Orton comes out to the stage and he soaks in all the applause as his eyes look even more deadly than Lesnar's did during his entrance. Orton looks over to the ring and he begins to walk down the aisle. JR talks about how when he interviewed Orton, he had that look of motivation in his eyes that he had never seen before throughout Orton's career. Booker T says that I'm with you dawg, as he says that this injury that Orton has come out of may have been the best thing that happened to him, because it lit a fuse in The Viper that we have never seen before. Orton enters the ring, as the music stops. Orton & Lesnar stare each other down from separate sides in the ring as the fans are going nuts. We see chants of 'RANDY ORTON!' and 'SUPLEX CITY' as the bell rings, and the dream match BEGINS!!



    Match Nine: "The Beast" Brock Lesnar vs. "The Viper" Randy Orton

    Finish: As soon as the bell rang, it was Randy Orton who immediately took it to The Beast as the fans went nuts for Orton throwing the first shots. But then shortly after that, The Beast took advantage of Orton's aggression and anger and he turned it into a German Suplex! As the match progressed, it's been very even between the both men. Both men have got numerous amount of offense in, and Lesnar has nailed only 3 German Suplexes in the match as he has rightfully took Orton to Suplex City, but on the other hand- Orton did what he said would do, and he took Lesnar to ViperVille! The fans have been fully behind both men, with 50-50 reactions- whilst the Raw & Smackdown commentary tables have Lesnar & Orton respectively.

    But back to the match itself, we've reached the 5 minute mark as the two men have took it to each other. Orton has control of Lesnar as he has The Beast in a headlock- and he begins to throw plenty of shots to the cheek of Lesnar as the two men look shattered following the beating they have given to each other. Orton continues to punch Lesnar but Lesnar grabs hold of Orton's arm... and he uses all his strength to break out of the headlock as he gets The Viper off him! Lesnar is eventually out of The Viper's grasp, and he pushes Orton with force before charging at him with a rugby tackle as Orton goes down!

    And Lesnar immediately erupts with shots to the body as well as the head of Orton as Ranallo talks about how Lesnar is bringing his UFC style into this match- due to Orton being such a challenge. Lesnar continues with the body shots, and he begins to get very relentless and angry which leads to the referee having to intervene as he tries to calm Lesnar down. Lesnar eventually gets back up to his feet as Orton is still down, and he picks Orton up- before going to nail a German Suplex... but Orton grabs hold of the ropes! JR talks about how Orton is using the ropes to make sure he survives Suplex City!

    Lesnar is forced to let go by the referee again, before The Beast heads back to his opponent to get some more offense in... but Orton strikes with an elbow to the face of Lesnar! Lesnar holds his face in pain as Orton runs from one side to another- and he charges at Lesnar with a Swinging Neckbreaker..... BUT BROCK LESNAR HAS REVERSED IT INTO KIMURA LOCK screams Cole as Orton is in trouble!!! The fans go nuts due to the reversal, as Lesnar has Orton locked in the submission hold- and JR says that Orton is in huge trouble! If he doesn't escape, then Lesnar will re-injure Orton's shoulder!

    Orton can be heard screaming in pain as Lesnar can be heard screaming 'TAP OUT YOU BITCH!' as Lesnar tighetens the pressure. Paul Heyman can be heard screaming 'SNAP HIS ARM! SNAP IT!!' as he tries to encourage Lesnar to get rid of Orton. Booker T says that he can't watch this, as Orton tries his best to fight out of the Kimura Lock, but he can't as Lesnar just adds more power to the submission hold. Orton is trying to reach for the ropes as he just a millisecond away from it, whilst Lesnar tries to move over towards the center of the ring... BUT ORTON GRABS HOLD OF THE ROPES!!! Screamed JBL as he says that Orton was fighting for his LIFE right there.

    Lesnar still has the move locked in as the referee intervenes once again, and Lesnar let's go off Orton's arm as Orton winces in pain by holding his shoulder. Lesnar looks at Orton, and he bursts into laughter as he's finding all of this very funny. Lesnar immediately grabs hold of Orton again as he picks him up, and he attempts to put Orton in position for an F5... BUT ORTON FIGHTS BACK! Orton takes it to Lesnar as he throws shots to Lesnar's body before kicking Lesnar in the mid-section! Lesnar loses control as he has his head towards the canvas, and Orton grabs Lesnar's arm and he puts his leg over Lesnar's head and twists Lesnar... OVERDRIVE SWINGING NECKBREAKER TO LESNAR!!! JR says that move is called The O-Zone- and we haven't seen that from Orton since he was in OVW! Orton PLANTED Lesnar to the canvas with the moved, as Heyman looked on in shock- and Orton goes for the cover. One... Two... BUT LESNAR KICKS OUT AT TWO!!

    Orton can't believe it, but he has no choice but to move on as he gets back to his feet at a slow pace. He looks down on Lesnar, before grabbing him by the hair- and picking him up... before going for an Irish Whip as he throws Lesnar into the ropes devastatingly! Orton looks to the crowd, and he nods in approval before charging towards Lesnar with a Corner Clothesline... and he hits it!! Lesnar stumbles towards the center of the ring, as Orton waits for The Beast to turn around, and he slowly does so. Lesnar turns back to Orton as Orton charges towards Lesnar with another Clothesline... but Lesnar ducks as Orton hits the air! Lesnar turns around as Orton has his back towards the other side...



    GERMAN SUPLEX TO RANDY ORTON!!! Screamed Graves as Lesnar nails Orton with the FOURTH German Suplex of the night! The fans go nuts, as they chant 'SUPLEX CITY' as Paul Heyman cheers Lesnar on. Lesnar puts a right hand over Orton as he goes for the cover. One! Two! BUT ORTON KICKS OUT AT 2! Lesnar looks pissed off, and rightfully so as he can't finish Orton here tonight. Heyman can be heard shouting 'FINISH HIM!' as Lesnar looks on at his advocate, and he nods in approval. Lesnar gets up- with intentions of hitting an F5... but that all changes when he looks up towards the turnbuckle. He begins to chuckle as Heyman looks confused. Ranallo questions what could be on Lesnar's mind?!

    Lesnar looks at Heyman, and he motions that he's going in the air with his fingers as Heyman shouts 'WHAT?! NO LESNAR, DON'T!' as Lesnar walks towards the corner- and gets up on the turnbuckle! The fans can be heard cheering in anticipation, as Cole says that LESNAR IS GOING FOR THE SHOOTING STAR PRESS!!! JBL responds, and says that Lesnar is doing what Orton did- and he's also going old school in an attempt to beat his opponent. Lesnar begins to laugh, and he steadies himself on the turnbuckle as the fans are in awe... will Lesnar hit the move?! As Lesnar goes to compose himself...

    Orton is back up on his feet! And Orton rushes towards the turnbuckle to Lesnar, as he hits Lesnar with a shot to the face in an attempt to get him off the ropes. But Lesnar doesn't budge. Orton hits another shot to the face, as well as to the body- before grabbing hold of Lesnar's head... and getting himself onto the turnbuckle with The Viper. Lesnar tries to fight out of it, but Orton grabs hold of Lesnar's shoulder and he hooks it behind his head before jumping off the top rope... AND ORTON BLASTS LESNAR WITH A SUPER-PLEX!!!!!

    WHAT A SCENE IN THE BARCLAYS CENTER TONIGHT PLAYA- screams Booker T as the fans go absolutely CRAZY due to both Orton & Lesnar literally CRASHING onto the canvas. The two men go down, as JR says that Super-Plex could be heard all around the world! Orton rolls over closer to Lesnar to drape an arm over him- but Lesnar uses all his energy to crawl over to the ropes as Orton is unable to pin him. Graves says that the two men have destroyed each other tonight, and they are both STILL fighting!

    Orton rolls over to the other side, and he heads to the corner as uses the turnbuckles to help himself up. He slowly gets back up whilst Lesnar is still on the ground. Orton begins to punch the mat repeatedly as he's setting Lesnar up to finish him off as JBL says that Orton is looking to hit the RKO! Orton stalks The Beast like a predator stalks his prey, as Orton is waiting for Lesnar to get up. Heyman can be heard shouting 'DON'T GET UP BROCK! DON'T GET UP!!' but Graves says that Lesnar looks too dazed. Lesnar grabs hold of the ropes to regain his composure, and he slowly gets back up to his feet as Orton is waiting for him. And Lesnar turns around as Orton charges at him with an RKO... BUT LESNAR CATCHES ORTON! Lesnar has hold of Orton as he lifts The Viper up... FALLAWAY SLAM TO ORTON!! The fans respond with cheers and boos as Ranallo says that this is the show of strength from The Beast!

    Lesnar gets back up again as Graves says that The Beast is back in control. This leads to Lesnar grabbing hold of Orton, and he puts Orton's head over the second ring rope- before exiting the ring, and standing on behind the apron. Lesnar then erupts with knee lifts to Orton's head and shoulders. He hits one, and he hits another! And another! Lesnar continues with multiple knee lifts to Orton's head. Lesnar starts to laugh again, as he's loving the pain he's inflicting. As a matter of fact, he loves it so much that he hits Orton with another knee lift before taunting Orton and screaming 'YOU THINK YOU CAN BEAT ME, HUH?!' as some fans can be heard booing. Lesnar then looks to the crowd, as Paul Heyman walks over to his client- and Lesnar laughs yet again as he looks towards his advocate... BUT ORTON HEADBUTTS LESNAR IN THE MID-SECTION! And Orton hits another headbutt from nowhere as the fans begin to cheer, and Orton gets his head out of the ropes and he grabs hold of Lesnar's head as he has him in a headlock position. He pulls Lesnar's feet as Lesnar's feet are on the second ropes, and Orton looks to the crowd...



    VINTAGE ORTON!!! ORTON NAILS LESNAR WITH A SPIKE DDT screams JR as Lesnar hits the canvas hard!! However, so has Orton as the two men are down yet again whilst Heyman looks on with a face of shock- and Ranallo says that THIS is what the fans waited 15 years for, and this match has certainly been living up to the expectations!! The two men are clearly exhausted as Orton is the first to pick himself back up, whilst Lesnar attempts to roll over to the ropes. Orton notices this, and he rushes over to Lesnar before jumping in the air with a vicious Knee Drop to Lesnar's mid-section! Orton had intentions of going for the cover, but he can't due to Lesnar using the ropes to avoid being pinned again. Orton looks to continue the offensive mentality as he grabs hold of Lesnar's head- and he looks to pick him up back to his feet as things are very slow right now...

    BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX BY BROCK LESNAR ONTO RANDY ORTON!!!!! The fans erupt yet again as Graves states that Lesnar nails Orton with the FIFTH SUPLEX of tonight!! The fans are up on their feet again, as Lesnar is dizzy- but he's not looking to stop! Paul Heyman can be heard screaming 'TAKE HIM TO SUPLEX CITY' as Lesnar looks at Heyman- and he nods in approval. Lesnar's movement is very sluggish in the ring due to how long this match has been, but he waits for Orton to get up so he can nail another Suplex- as Orton does so... ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX TO ORTON!! The fans chant 'SUPLEX CITY' but Lesnar isn't finished there! He hasn't let go off Orton, and pauses for a second before going to erupt with another German Suplex... BUT ORTON WRIGGLES OUT OF IT...



    RKOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! THE ENTIRE ARENA ERUPTS as Orton HAS NAILED LESNAR WITH AN RKO!!! JR is screaming as he says that this one has gotta be over! Booker shouts that he thinks JR is right dawg, as Heyman has his hands on his eyes as he can't watch!! And Orton goes for the cover, fully confident that he will get the win. The referee counts. One...... Two..... BUT LESNAR KICKS OUT!!!!!! No one can believe this!!! Heyman is screaming and jumping with joy as Lesnar has kicked out of the RKO!!! Meanwhile, Orton can't believe it. Orton is absolutely SHOCKED. Booker states that Orton always said it would take only 1 RKO to take Lesnar down... but from what we've just seen? He might need a lot more!!

    The Viper picks himself up as he has his hands over his head. What is it going to take to stop The Beast?! Orton looks down at Lesnar, and his face goes from disappointed... to cold. JBL says that Orton's face has just shifted from one emotion to another- VERY quickly, and this might mean that Lesnar is in trouble. Orton walks over to the corner, as he tries to gain some energy back- and Lesnar is stirring in the ring, Orton begins to KICK the ring as the fans begin to cheer with a Punt Kick being on Orton's mind. JR shouts that this could be it- if Orton can't pin Lesnar, he's going to END Lesnar's career instead!

    Lesnar continues to stirr, and he begins to crawl over to Orton as Paul Heyman knows exactly what's going on. Heyman begins to shout 'NO LESNAR! NO!!! DON'T GO OVER TO HIM!' but Lesnar is too wobbly to understand what his advocate is saying. Heyman realizes this, and he runs over to the other side of the ring as he screams at Orton. He screams 'DON'T DO IT!!! DONT DO IT!!!' over and over again... but Orton responds with a smirk back!!! The fans pop as Orton turns back to Lesnar, and he RUNS towards Lesnar to go for a Punt Kick... BUT LESNAR GRABS HOLD OF ORTON!!! He lifts The Viper up onto his shoulders as he prevents Orton from finishing him off...



    F5 TO RANDY ORTON!!! F5 TO RANDY ORTON!!!!! Screamed the entire Raw commentary table as Lesnar BLASTS Orton with his finisher onto the mat!!!! The fans go wild with cheers and boos as Ranallo says that this HAS to be over!! And Lesnar drapes an arm over Orton as the referee begins to count. One! Two! BUT RANDY ORTON HAS KICKED OUT! HE'S KICKED OUT OF THE F5!!!!!!!!! Screams Booker T as the fans cheer yet again!!! The drama in this match is unreal as both men have kicked out of each other's finishes- whilst Heyman is clearly on the edge right now.

    Cole asks WHAT does both of these men have to do to in order to get the win?! Lesnar is down on the floor, as he picks himself back up. He grabs Orton by the head, and he throws multiple shots to the head of Orton. He sets him up up for another German Suplex... but Orton fights back again! Orton erupts with a huge Big Boot to the mid-section of Lesnar!! Lesnar slowly stumbles back, before Lesnar charges towards Orton with a Spear... BUT LESNAR RUNS INTO A POWERSLAM FROM ORTON! And Orton immediately goes for the cover as the referee counts. One! Two! BUT NOOOOOOOOOOOO! LESNAR KICKS OUT!!!! And Orton has no choice but to viciously PUNCH the mat in frustration as he STILL can't put The Beast down!!! Orton continues to punch the mat, as JBL says that Orton might be looking to finish Lesnar off again!! Orton waits for Lesnar to get back up- with intentions of nailing another RKO to finally put The Beast down. Lesnar uses the ropes for leverage to get back up on his feet- and Heyman looks on! Lesnar is finally back up as Orton's mannerisms to psyche himself up is also psyching the crowd up. The fans cheer as Lesnar turns around, and Orton goes for the RKO...

    GERMAN SUPLEEEEEEEX!!!! AN EIGHTH SUPLEX TO RANDY ORTON AS ORTON GOES DOWN!!! Broolyn chants 'SUPLEX CITY' again as Graves questions if this is it?! Lesnar recomposes himself again, as he picks his opponent up from the ground. He grabs hold of Orton, and puts him over his shoulder...



    A SECOND F5 TO RANDY ORTON!!! And the fans explode with mixed reactions as Lesnar goes for the cover. One! Two! THREE! AND THE BEAST DEFEATS THE VIPER!

    JOJO: AND THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH IS... BROOOOCK LESNAAAAAAAAAAR!!

    The crowd respond with mixed reactions- as Lesnar is announced as the winner, and Paul Heyman rushes into the ring straight away to join his client. He screams 'YOU WON BROCK! YOU WON!' in his client's face as he is full of joy and elation due to The Beast conquering The Viper! Heyman grabs hold of his client and he helps him back up to his feet- as the referee raises Lesnar's hand high up in the air. Orton is out cold on the ground, despite putting up a good fight.

    Cole says that Lesnar has done it- and both Raw & Smackdown have a win each tonight! Ranallo says that he's not even sure if Lesnar knows that he's won- as Lesnar looks completely out of it. Heyman guides Lesnar out of the ring- and the two men exit the ring before heading to the back. On the other hand, Orton has rolled out of the ring- and Orton is out cold. Graves says that credit where credit is due- even though Orton is on the rival brand, he might have lost- but he did exactly what he said he would do. He took Lesnar to ViperVille- and he gave Lesnar a match of a lifetime. Now, we head backstage.



    The cameras immediately cut to the back, as we see the NEW Intercontinental Champion in Cesaro to a huge pop from the fans. Cesaro is walking backstage with his newly won title, until he's interrupted... by Stephanie McMahon!

    Stephanie McMahon: Cesaro, it's great to see you. Congratulations on becoming the NEW Intercontinental Champion!

    Cesaro looks chuffed, before Stephanie shakes his hand.

    Cesaro: Thank you Stephanie, it means a lot.

    Stephanie smiles.

    Stephanie McMahon:
    That's not a problem. You certainly proved all of your doubters wrong by winning this prestigious belt, and there is one doubter that you proved wrong in particular...

    My very own dad, Vince McMahon.


    Cesaro can't believe this, as Stephanie looks impressed- and the fans erupt with cheers.

    Stephanie McMahon: And I have just received word from my father that he will be here on Raw tomorrow night- to publicly endorse you.

    Cesaro looks shocked.

    Stephanie McMahon: That's right, my father will announce that you did indeed prove him wrong to the WWE Universe. Again, congratulations your victory. You sure do deserve it!

    Stephanie gives Cesaro a pat on the shoulder as Cesaro looks happy with the outcome, before Stephanie walks off whilst Cesaro looks as his new belt.



    The camera heads over to the Smackdown commentary once more where Jim Ross hope's everyone is enjoying the action and says that it's been an awesome night so far and SummerSlam is just heating up because up next we have the Smackdown Women's Championship match! It's the Queen, the Smackdown Women's Champion, Charlotte Flair vs the challenger, Natalya!

    "JBL" then chimes in and says that this one has become so personal and it's reignited a war of years gone by with the Hart vs Flair debate! "JBL" says tonight these two gifted women will continue the legacy and we're going to find out who's the better and settle this once and for all! Booker then says that these two women are perhaps the best two female wrestlers in the world today and it's going down tonight at SummerSlam! The live camera then floats over to the commentary table where the Titantron goes live and a video package begins to play.

    "In the Air tonight" plays by Nonpoint in the background as the video package follows along with the words..
    "I can feel it, Coming in the air tonight..
    ..I've been waiting for this moment, For all my life"

    The footage shows a very young Natalya and Charlotte. Both women are shown in and around the wrestling business with their legendary families. It Shows Natalya with her father the Anvil, Jim Neidhart and her uncles, Bret, Owen and Davey Boy Smith. It also shows her early wrestling days alongside Tyson Kidd and David Hart Smith Jr as the Hart Dynasty. The footage then switches to Charlotte and she is shown in images with the two time Hall of Famer and her father, Ric Flair. She is also shown with members of the Four Horseman and her brother, Reid. It finishes with early days of Charlotte within NXT and alongside Sasha, Becky and Bayley.

    "I remember dont worry, How could i ever forget..
    ..Its the first time, The last time, We ever met"


    The footage now shows a flashback to 2014 at the first ever NXT TakeOver where Charlotte and Natalya competed for the vacant NXT Women's Championship. It shows footage of the match and the classic that both women put on show for the crowd. It finishes with Charlotte coming out with a victory but the show of the respect between both women, hugging and crying backstage is the highlight.

    "No you dont fool me, Cause the hurt doesn't show..
    ..But the pain still grows, Its no stranger to you and me"

    The footage now shows Charlotte and Natalya over the years and their growth within the WWE. It shows their highlights but also their struggles and the pressure that comes with being a Hart and a Flair, living up to the legacies and expectation that surrounds them.

    "I saw it with my own two eyes, So you can wipe of the grin..
    ..I know where you've been, Its all been a pack of lies"


    The next set of clips shows Charlotte becoming Women's Champion but also using Dana Brooke to keep the belt and the change of attitude. It shows Natalya then coming out and confronting Charlotte on Smackdown and the barbed words that were said between both women and their families. It shows them fighting and the fight continuing backstage as both women have to be separated before Natalya's rant on Talking Smack and Shane Mcmahon announcing the two will meet at SummerSlam to compete for the Women's Championship!
    The video package then stops and the song dies down as the Titantron fades. Jim Ross then calls the video package powerful before hyping up the importance of this match! Jim Ross says that Natalya and Charlotte carry the weight and expectation of heritage and legacy on their shoulders but they do so with heart and flair. "JR" says the stage is set and this one is going to be amazing!

    The live camera then floats around ringside and their's huge pops from the Brooklyn crowd as on one side Natalya's father and uncle, Jim and Bret Hart are shown while on the other side, those cheers turn to large "Woohoooooooo's!" from the crowd as Charlotte's father Ric Flair and her uncle, Arn Anderson are shown.

    JOJO: This match is scheduled for one fall- and it is for the Smackdown Women's Championship! Introducing first.. The Challenger! Hailing from Calgary, Alberta, Canada! Nattie by Nature! NAATTAALYAAAA!

    NEW FOUNDATION!!

    The crowd pop as Natalya comes out with a smile on her face and showing respect to her heritage as she's wearing pink and black and even has an old school looking Hart Foundation jacket on with "Anvil" on the back in respect to her father, Jim Neidhart. Nattie makes her way down the ramp, slapping hands with the crowd and sharing a moment with the younger fans in the crowd before making her way down to ringside and embracing her father and uncle Bret with hugs and kiss before taking her place in the ring and then hitting the Bret Hart pose as the crowd cheer again. Nattie then takes off the jacket and begins to stretch before awaiting her opponent as she turns her attention to the stage.

    JOJO: And her opponent! The Champion! From the Queen City! The WWE Smackdown Women's Champion! The Queen! CHAARRLOOTTEEEEE FLAAAIIIRRRRRRR!

    RECOGNITION!!

    Mixed response sounds as Charlotte's theme begins to play. Overwhelming boo's are heard at first before "Woohoooo" is heard from the Brooklyn crowd. However the mixed reception is gone and it becomes boo's as Dana Brooke comes out first and plays up the Queen image as she kneels down and begins to clap the arrival of the Smackdown Women's Champion who comes out in a glamorous, sparkly blue robe. The title around her waist and then she has a sparkling, diamond encrusted crown on her head as she waves at the fans in attendance in a mocking way with a smirk across her face. Charlotte then struts down the ramp but first walks over to the Hart family and "Woohoooo's" at them before then walking around to her supportive side and embraces her father and her uncle, Ric Flair and Arn Anderson.

    Charlotte then undoes her robe, hands her crowd and Championship to Dana and then does her signature headstand before entering the ring with a smile across her face. In the ring and the Referee has the Women's Championship and holds it up as the crowd cheer while Charlotte and Natalya are face to face. The Referee then calls for the ring bell and the match is underway! Ding! Ding! Ding!



    Match Ten: Women's Championship Match, Charlotte Flair (C) W/ Dana Brooke vs Natalya.

    Finish:
    The match started with a big stare down as both Champion and Challenger stood in the centre of the ring and took in the reaction and response from the crowd. Charlotte begins to "Wooo" and strut around the ring before Natalya smiles and then does the same, mocking Charlotte before then hitting the Bret Hart pose as the crowd cheered.

    Charlotte would then challenge Nattie to an old school lock up and test of strength as the daughter of the anvil agree's and both women go to lock up. However Charlotte would side step Natalya and would then strut again before letting out a louder "Woohooooo!" as a mixed response of cheers and boos would follow. Eventually after some mind games from Charlotte, the rivals would lock up and it was on! Charlotte would use her height for leverage and looked to have the beaten of Nattie but then Natalya would power up and use her strength, powering up and driving Charlotte back into the ropes as the Referee would get in between and call for a clear break as Charlotte raised her arms in the air. Natalya would break clean but then Charlotte would slap Nattie across the face and infuriate the female graduate of the Hart dungeon.

    Natalya would then rush Charlotte and attack with right hand punches as Charlotte wrapped around the ropes and pleaded for the Referee to break it up. Eventually the official would call for the break and push Nattie back and then Charlotte would drop down and exit the ring before walking over to Dana Brooke and apparently going over some last minute strategy as the Referee started the count out. The Referee would reach the seven mark with the crowd booing before Charlotte would eventually role back into the ring and then roll straight back out before mouthing "I'll do it when I'm ready!" as the crowd boo's continued. Charlotte though would not see Natalya coming and Nattie would cut Charlotte off with right hands to the face, knocking Charlotte back with each strike. Nattie would then swing Charlotte into the crowd barrier and would look to follow up with a forearm strike but the Champion would throw up a boot and catch Nattie in the face, stunning the challenger. Charlotte would then spine Nattie around before driving her shoulder into her stomach and slamming her back first into the crowd barrier and then stomping her down as she posed in front of the booing front row seats.

    Charlotte would then once more enter the ring and roll back out breaking up the count before driving knee's into Nattie as she attempted to stand up. Charlotte would then grab Nattie by the hair and would take her over to the row where Jim and Bret Hart would seated and would mouth she is.. "The Best there is, the Best there was and the Best there ever will be!" before slamming Natalya's head into the crowd barrier as her father and uncle winced and tried to chant support for the Hart dungeon graduate. Charlotte would then drag up Nattie and would slap hard with chops across the chest as the crowd naturally "WOOOOO'D" at each one. Charlotte would then place Nattie across the ring apron and would leaver her head hanging over the apron with the majority of her body in the ring. Charlotte would then leap up onto the ring apron and would take a page out of The Undertakers play book and would drop a big leg drop across the throat of Natalya!

    Jim Ross would call that Charlotte has become a student of the game and just made a play out of the Phenom's playbook with that one! "JBL" would say that Charlotte is a thinking Champion but it don't take a genius to work out that you're going to find it hard to breath with so much force coming down on your throat! Booker says that Charlotte is a flair and tonight she will do what ever it takes to win! The action then returns to the ring where Nattie is feeling the effects of the leg drop and attempts to stand only for Charlotte to live up to her last name and she would kick out Nattie's leg from behind the knee and cause her to fall. Charlotte would then use the ropes for leverage and would bounce up and drop her knee on top of the same leg, clearly targeting the same area as she would get back up and pose, strutting around the ring. Charlotte would then shout at Natalya to get up and she attempted too for the second time. SMASH! Charlotte would kick Nattie's leg out and Natalya would fall head first hitting the back of the canvas and would roll out of the ring in a daze. Charlotte would scream that she is the Queen and you will bow down to me Natalya! Charlotte would then look up at the turnbuckle and with the crowd cheering in anticipation she would be perched on top and once Natalya was able to stand back up..



    ...BAH GAWD!! CHARLOTTE WITH THE MOONSAULT TO THE OUTSIDE!! The crowd pop as "JR" yelled out in shock and Charlotte landed picture perfectly on Natalya to the outside. The crowd start cheering "That was awesome!" as both women are laid out on the floor and the Referee is forced to start a count out attempt. The Referee reaches six for his count and the camera pans around to their respective supporting families as they are urging them on. 7! 8! Charlotte is up and slides into the ring as Natlya stands up, holding her leg, still feeling the effects of the attack from Charlotte. 9! Natalya enters the ring and the crowd pop as the Referee was about to call the 10 and count out. He confirms that Natlya made it in time as the crowd are cheering.

    Natalya then uses the ropes to stand back up and as soon as she stands, Charlotte is right on the attack again and drives her shoulder into the back of Natalya's kneecap, knocking her down with a sick grin across her face. The crowd are booing as Nattie rolls around in pain and Charlotte is watching on, planning her next move. Charlotte then grabs Nattie by the leg and drags her towards the ring post, exits the ring and then wraps Nattie's injured leg across the steel with a swing.. CRASH! Nattie screams in agony as Charlotte continues to damage Nattie's leg by driving into the ring post. Charlotte then wraps Natalya's leg across the ring post, takes a step back and then drives a big boot into the leg and it crushes against the steel as again Nattie shouts out in agony and the crowd are booing more intensely as Charlotte just stands and poses.

    COME ON NOW CHARLOTTE, NATALYA MIGHT NOT WALK AGAIN!! shouted Jim Ross with real worry in his voice. "JBL" would say this ain't ballet, Ross. This is for all the marbles and the Queen is going to make sure she leaves her Queendom with the Smackdown Women's Championship! Charlotte would take a few seconds to gloat as she watched Natalya ride around in the ring- in pain- holding her leg as the Referee asked if she wanted to continue. The live camera would pan over to Bret and Jim in the crowd and they watched on with worry- trying there best to encourage their daughter and niece respectively. Charlotte would then watch Natalya clutches at the top rope, attempting to pull herself up and she would enter the ring- stalking the member of the Hart family and just when the chance arrived.. Charlotte would look to attack again! OH NO, NOT AGAIN! Shouted Booker T as it looked like Charlotte was about to kick out Natalya's leg but Nattie would spin off the remaining good leg and would clock Charlotte with a huge DISCUSS CLOTHESLINE!! The crowd would pop as the move came out of nowhere!

    CHARLOTTE JUST GOT HER BELL RUNG, THIS COULD BE OVER, FOLKS! Said Jim Ross as Natalya would fall on top of Charlotte in a cover position. HERE WE GO, COUNT IT REFEREE! Said Booker and the Referee started the count.. ONE! TWO! THRE-NOOOOOO! CHARLOTTE KICKED OUT AT THE LAST SECOND! The camera panned over to Arn and Ric Flair who have their hands on their head- they feared it was over but the Queen kicked out in time. Charlotte is up first but she seems in shock- she knows that she was close to losing. Nattie in the mean time is up as well and as Charlotte got close, she fired with strong right hands. Each one knocking Charlotte back a little and stunning the Champion. Natalya would then throw one more big hand but Charlotte would catch it and look to punch back with one of her own. Nattie though would duck underneath and would grab Charlotte around the waist, spin her around and then demonstrate her strength by launching Charlotte across the ring with a..



    ...GERMAN SUPLEX! CHARLOTTE JUST WENT TO SUPLEX CITY! Said "JBL" with trepidation in his tone. A small "Suplex City" chant breaks out as the crowd cheer the strength shown by the challenger. Charlotte is down, the back of her head appeared to hit the canvas first as the replay made for tough viewing. Nattie though is hurting- she had to use both legs to power up Charlotte and throw her across the ring. She's sat up on the ring canvas, holding her leg and the pain is etched across her face. She once more uses the ropes to stand up but as soon as she tries to take a couple of steps, she has a wobble and her leg appears to give out and she falls and catches the ropes to lean on and stop her from hitting the mat. Charlotte then begins to move and is back up, she see's Nattie hanging on the ropes and charges like a women possessed and right in front of Arn Anderson and Ric Flair she runs right through Natalya with a Rhyno like gore cutting through Natalya as they both come tumbling through the ropes and fall to the hard outside flooring with one hell of a crash as the Brooklyn crowd gasp with worry at the hard landing and immediately the Referee exits the ring to check on both women who are down.

    Jim Ross directs us to the reply and says that these women are putting it all on the line! Booker says that Charlotte just ran through Nattie like a truck but she might have come off worse, seemingly spiking her head on the outside of the ring. "JBL" says that he agree's with Booker, unfortunately. He says that Ric Flair face tells the story as he looks seriously worried as he leans over the barricade and tries to communicate with his daughter, Charlotte. Meanwhile Dana is trying to help Charlotte up, but she appears dazed. Nattie is still down. The Referee then notices Charlotte enter the ring and checks on her, asking if she's okay but there is no response. Meanwhile Nattie is trying to stand up, pulling at the ring apron as the crowd are willing her on. Nattie is then up and looks to enter the ring but Dana Brooke then runs and kicks Nattie's leg from underneath her with a sickening act of cowardliness before running across to the other side of the ring and out of the frame as the crowd are booing.

    Well would you look at that? That damn Dana Brooke once again! Said an infuriated Jim Ross. "JBL" then says he didn't see nothing... All he seen was Nattie fall over because of her leg. Ross then says off course you didn't see nothing John.. You're in camp Flair and was known for playing dirty back in your day! Booker then chimes in and says that was absolutely disgusting from Dana Brooke and she needs to stay out of this match! Charlotte then suddenly finds her communication and begins asking the Referee to count out Natalya who is down and is clearly agony which is uncomfortable to watch. One! Two! Three! The Referee starts his count and Nattie is down, the crowd are cheering but she's not responding. Four! Five! Six! She looks up and tries to grasp the ring apron. Seven! Eight! Nattie pulls at the ring apron and almost drags her lifeless lower half up with her strength. Nine! She is now slumped onto the ring apron and is positioning her strong leg for one big push. Ten! NO! NATTIE MAKES IT AND CHARLOTTE IS FURIOUS!! Right as the Referee shouted Ten, Nattie had made the call and was able to push up and get her body in the ring. Charlotte is seated in the ring and begins jumping up and down on the canvas and shouting "NO!" like a petulant child while Dana Brooke leaps up on the ring apron to shout at the Referee and accuse him of a slow count while the Brooklyn crowd watch on.

    WILL SOMEBODY GET DANA BROOKE AWAY FROM RINGSIDE, PLEASE?! Shouted Jim Ross as the crowd are booing. The Referee warns Dana and ask's her to stand down as she eventually does. Back in the ring and Charlotte is now up, she looks legit pissed and it shows. She walks over to Nattie and begins to lay boots into the Hart family member, stomping her repeatedly. Charlotte then grips the bad leg of Nattie and drags it across to the middle of the ring canvas before pulling down her own knee pad. Charlotte then takes a few steps back, bounces off the ropes and leaps into the air, dropping the knee across Natalya's bad leg as another scream of agony comes from the challenger. Charlotte is not done though and she does the unthinkable. She points towards Bret Hart and shouts.. "I'm the best! I'll do it better then you.. I'll do it with Flair!" and it soon becomes obvious as the ultimate show of disrespect is shown to the Hart family as Charlotte locks Natalya in the..



    SHARPSHOOTER! I can't believe I'm saying but CHARLOTTE FLAIR HAS NATALYA IN THE SHARPSHOOTER! Says Jim Ross as the crowd are booing, only a smaller minority are cheering as Ric Flair leads the section with claps, shouting for Natalya to tap out. Natalya has her face towards her family and she is screaming so much that Jim can't look while Bret is trying to will her on and appears to try to offer a solution via a way to escape! Charlotte is also yelling out, she's asking Natalya to give up!

    IT'S OVER, IT'S OVER, NATALYA JUST TAPPED OUT!! Shouted John Layfield. WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU ON ABOUT? THIS AIN'T SURVIVOR SERIES, JOHN! Natalya is hanging in there folks, she's trying to fight back! THE HEART AND PASSION, THE DESIRE, NATALYA WILL NOT QUIT FOLKS! The pressure is cranked up and the end looks near as the Referee continues to ask Nattie is she wants to give up?! Nattie though appears to almost lose the fight and looks ready to tap out when is able to somehow twist out and cause Charlotte to lose balance and fall out of the hold. Charlotte though spins back around and grabs the legs once more, this time she is looking for the FIGURE FOUR LEG LOCK!! Nattie though is able to push out like a mule, both feet to the chest of the Champion and send her flying across the ring! Charlotte though is like a shark that smells blood. She pops back up once more and again grabs Natalya's legs and looks to turn again however once more Natalya has the answer and she manages to trip Charlotte and grab her with a roll up!



    ONE! TWO! THR-NOOOOO! Charlotte kicked out and broke free right at the last split second but many of the Brooklyn crowd thought the match was done! Charlotte though just doing enough and she rolls out of the ring, falling to her knees and shaking her head, she knows that was again too close for comfort. Dana Brooke comes across and is in the face of her Queen, asking if she's okay and what she can do to help? Charlotte though tells Dana to shut up and that she needs time to think. Charlotte now stands up and paces back and forth, clearly the Sharpshooter situation is replaying in her head and maybe she knows that she's missed her chance to win this match and successfully defend her Smackdown Women's Championship! Back in the ring and Nattie is back down on the canvas, pain still etched across her face as the Referee continues to check on her condition. Nattie then begins to crawl to the ropes and once more starts to pull herself up as she clutches on the top one for support to stand up. The Champion then slides back in the ring and is stalking the challenger, she waits for Nattie to fully stand up and then once again she strikes... Another swiping kick to Nattie's injured leg but Natalya uses the ropes and hopes over the incoming kick with her strong leg before firing right forearms to the face of the Champion, each one knocking her back a little more. Natalya then kicks Charlotte in the stomach before lifting up Charlotte and bringing her back down to the canvas with the Michinoku driver II and covering for the three count! One! Two!

    IT'S OVER, NATALYA WITH THE TWO COUNT! HERE COMES THE THRE- NOOOOO! CHARLOTTE IS ALIVE, THE CHAMPION KICKS OUT!! Said Jim Ross as Nattie can't believe it. She's shaking her head and pleading with the Referee as she truly thought it was enough to win the match. Natalya though seems to get her second wind and despite the pain, she fights through and stands up once more, pumping her arms and letting out a scream as the crowd all chant along with her. Natalya then signals what's next and she grabs Charlotte by the legs and immediately there is panic as Charlotte tries to kick away Nattie and begins to shout "No! No!" repeatedly as Dana Brooke on the outside is doing the same. Despite Charlotte attempts, Nattie flips over Charlotte and she has it locked in and the crowd pop like crazy..



    ..SHARPSHOOTER! NATALYA WITH THE FAMOUS HART, SHARPSHOOTER!! Screamed Jim Ross as it was Charlotte's turn to scream in pain as she scratched and clawed at the ring canvas, trying to reach the ropes while Dana Brooke continued to panic at ringside as Ric and Arn Anderson watched on with worry. The Referee is asking the question and the crowd are cheering for Charlotte to tap out but the Champion shows her desire and despite screaming in agony, she shakes head and continues to close in on the ropes, inch by inch. Nattie is also screaming, she has both legs planted and it's locked in tight, but the injured leg is feeling the full effect of Charlotte trying to escape but Natalya shows no quit either and it's a showdown! Charlotte continues to claw, she's getting closer when Nattie tilts back more and cranks it up! Charlotte screams in pain and now has both hands over her face, almost in desperation. The Referee again ask's if she wants to give up and she raises her hand and looks about to tap when she stops herself and instead tries to claw, she's getting close and Nattie is starting to fatigue, the injured leg is causing her too much pain to keep hold of the lock. Charlotte is an inch away and she reaches when...

    SHE'S GOT THE ROPES, SHE'S GOT THE ROPES! BREAK IT UP, REFEREE! Shouted "JBL" as Charlotte has reached the ropes and just when the Referee is about too. Nattie powers forward and uses everything to pull Charlotte away from the ropes and back to square one in the middle of the ring and the crowd again pop with cheers as Dana Brooke at this time loses it completely on the outside and begins to turn away, she can't watch what's about to happen and it's coming! Booker is yelling that Charlotte has to tap out, there is no escape! Natalya lets out another scream and she cranks it up once more! Charlotte at this point is tearing up, she can feel the Championship slipping away as she raises her hand and is about to drop it down when..

    DANA BROOKE?! WHAT IS SHE DOING NOW?! Dana is up on the apron and she's screaming at the Referee and trying to get in the ring. The camera pans over to her quickly before panning back to Charlotte and the Smackdown Women's Champion is tapping out as the crowd are furious and booing. WILL SOMEONE GET THAT DAMN JEZEBEL OUTTA' HERE, PLEASE?! CHARLOTTE IS TAPPING AND DANA BROOKE IS DISTRACTING THE REFEREE! THIS IS RIDICULOUS! Jim Ross is clearly not happy and neither are the crowd. Natalya looks back to see Charlotte is tapping and tries to call back the Referee but Dana Brooke is attempting to enter the ring and the Referee then makes the call to ban her from ringside and the crowd pop. The Referee then turns back around but at this point, Natalya is done and had giving up the hold, laying on the canvas holding the injured leg and covering her face, she knows the match was won, that was her moment and Dana Brooke has cost her completely tonight. Charlotte in the meantime is down as well, holding her legs but you can sense the relieve across the face as she looks back at Dana Brooke walking up the ramp and exiting the arena.

    We knew she would, somehow, someway, we knew Dana would impact this match but I can't believe how that's just gone down said Booker T, clearly unhappy. Jim Ross points out that Charlotte had tapped out, repeatedly, Natalya should now be the new Smackdown Women's Championship and yet she lay's there, absolutely broken! It's disgusting! Natalya kneels towards her family and she's crying, the pain, the disappointment, she is truly broken as her family try to offer some encouragement. She has no time to digest their support though as from out of the picture the ice Queen Charlotte strikes with...

    NATURAL SELECTION!! "JBL" shouted as the crowd boo'd. Charlotte then begins to laugh, she knows that Nattie is broken and she's loving the moment. Charlotte turns Natalya over and with a smile on her face she drapes an arm across the challenger and waits for the inevitable as the Referee starts to count.. One! Two! NATALYA KICKS OUT! The crowd are cheering as Jim Ross praises the heart and passion from Natalya! Charlotte smirk has gone and she can't believe it, she's shouting at Natalya to give up and stay down! Charlotte stands back up and can't believe that this match is continuing on. She grabs Natalya by the hair and begins to slap Nattie across the face, telling her to quit! Charlotte then drags up the lifeless Nattie and holds her up from the crowd and her family to see before kicking her in the stomach and ending the contest with another...



    ..NATURAL SELECTION FOR THE SECOND TIME!! THAT'S GOT TO BE IT FOLKS, THERE'S NO WAY ANYONE CAN COME BACK FROM TWO OF THEM!! Said a saddened Jim Ross and he was correct. Charlotte would again pin the challenger, hooking the leg as the Referee counted.. One! Two! Three! The Brooklyn crowd are mixed, more are booing at the way Charlotte won the match and the way Nattie was screwed out of the victory but the others are cheering for the passion, desire, heart and hunger that both women showed and displayed. The commentary team are full of praise for both, calling them the best two female athletes in the world of wrestling! Charlotte Flair sits in the ring, silent but watching Nattie as she's helped up and out of the ring by the Referee and medical support that arrived from the back.

    JOJO: HERE'S YOUR WINNER... AND STILL SMACKDOWN WOMEN'S CHAMPION! CHARLOTTE FLAIR!

    The ring is now clear and Charlotte stands alone. She is announced as the match winner and receives her Championship belt and clutches it tightly before pushing the Referee away and shouting this is my moment, it's my time, I'm the Queen... I'm still the Champion! This draw's boo's from the crowd but she does not care. Charlotte then exits the ring and goes to her family and hugs both her Father and Uncle Arn tightly as all three are clearly emotional before then entering the ring once more and posing to the Brooklyn crowd. She raises the Championship in the air and says you will all bow down to your Queen!

    The crowd boo's continue as Charlotte holds the Championship in the air and begins to laugh until the attention turns to the stage and the lights go out..

    THE FUTURE!!

    The theme kicks in and the mask appears on the screen as the Brooklyn crowd go absolutely bananas at what they're about to see.

    Jim Ross screams are we about to witness history? "JBL" then chimes in and says this is the theme of NXT's undefeated Empress of Tomorrow! Booker says that she succesfully defended her NXT Championship less then 24 hours ago in this very building! Jim Ross says that she might be the Empress of Tomorrow but it looks like tomorrow has arrived today and she's about to go face to face with the current Smackdown Live Women's Champion!!



    IT'S THE NXT WOMEN'S CHAMPION!! IT'S ASUKA!! Shouts Jim Ross. "JR"reminds us that Asuka was part of the draft and was drafted to Smackdown Live! He says that Asuka will join once her NXT obligations are over and she's no longer carrying the NXT Women's Championship but it looks like she couldn't wait to meet the Smackdown Live Women's Champion and is headed for the ring!

    Charlotte is absolutely stunned and watches on as the Brooklyn crowd are in full voice chanting the name of the NXT Women's Champion! Asuka enters the ring and immediately steps to Charlotte who does not back down and we get a visual of the two women face to face. Charlotte then holds up the Smackdown Women's Championship before smiling. Asuka then replies, she removes her mask and licks her lips before nodding and raising her NXT Women's Championship in the air as well as the crowd are absolutely buzzing for the moment they're witnessing. The crowd then begin chanting "YES! YES! YES! as Jim Ross announces that we perhaps getting a glimpse of the future and he has no doubt that Charlotte and Asuka's paths will cross again one day! The live footage then fades to a SummerSlam commercial.



    The camera heads back to the Raw commentary team as Cole talks about how up next- we have Raw's main event for Summerslam! He says that we have a match between two men who have been the most loyal relationship since the moment they stepped foot into the WWE. Graves says that Dean Ambrose goes one on one with Roman Reigns as the two brothers will battle it out for the biggest prize on Raw! Ranallo says that this match is going to be absolutely amazing, but before we kick into the action- here's a video of how this match came about!

    The video package starts with tense music in the background- as we see how Raw's Summerslam main event formed.

    Raw - July 25th 2016 - Dolph Ziggler vs. Roman Reigns vs. Ryback vs. Sheamus- Fatal Four Way Match- Winner challenges Dean Ambrose for the WWE Championship

    The clip shows various highlights from this match as each men had their moments. We then see the ending to the match when Roman Reigns nailed Sheamus with a devastating Spear before covering him for the win whilst the fans respond with a mixed reaction.

    MAURO RANALLO: Roman Reigns has earned his way to the main event for Summerslam!

    Dean Ambrose's music begins to play- as the next clip shows Ambrose coming out following the match. We see Ambrose showing off his confidence by waving the WWE Championship around Reigns' face as the fans cheered.

    We see highlights of the Zayn/Reigns match as Reigns defeated Zayn via pinfall after a Spear. After the hard-fought match, Reigns picked up a mic.

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

    Reigns looked into the camera looking very serious.

    ROMAN REIGNS: 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.

    We see the clip of Ambrose waving the title around Reigns' face again which didn't impress the challenger at all.

    ROMAN REIGNS: That title you waved around my face? I have held that title THREE more times than you ever have in your career.

    We get video shots of Reigns celebrating his WWE Championship wins three times on seperate occassions.

    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.

    The video of Reigns defeating Ambrose at Survivor Series 2015 is shown.

    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 graphic of Reigns being drafted #1 on Raw whereas Dean Ambrose was drafted #2 on Raw is shown.

    ROMAN REIGNS: So Ambrose- I'm talking to you as brother to brother... man to man. Stay in your lane Ambrose...

    Because this is MY yard now.

    1st August 2016 - Raw- Sheamus vs. Dean Ambrose

    The clip moves on to Ambrose's match with Sheamus on the same night. We see Ambrose defeating Sheamus after nailing Dirty Deeds before covering him. Ambrose then picked up the mic.

    DEAN AMBROSE: CUT THE DAMN MUSIC!

    Ambrose looks even more serious than Reigns did.

    DEAN AMBROSE: 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!

    We see clips of Ambrose holding up the WWE Championship in victory.

    DEAN AMBROSE: 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!

    Footage from Battleground is shown when Ambrose pinned Reigns in The Shield Triple Threat Match.

    DEAN AMBROSE: 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!!

    MAURO RANALLO: Dean Ambrose has said it himself, this rivalry between the two brothers is only just about to start!

    We see Ambrose raising the WWE Championship- but the music turns gloomy as Sheamus attacked Ambrose from behind! Sheamus looked to take all his anger from the loss... Roman Reigns' music plays in the background!! And Reigns came out- and we see Reigns trading shots with Sheamus until he nailed The Celtic Warrior with a Superman Punch!

    The clip of Reigns putting his hand out for Ambrose to shake is shown... as Ambrose pondered whether to shake his brother's hand or not following their recent exchange. Ambrose went to shake... but he WAVED HIS HAND AWAY!

    The music then turns more fiery as Ambrose humiliated his own brother before the clip turns to the backstage segment from the following week on Raw.

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

    The two men glare at each other coldly before Ambrose turned sarcastic.

    DEAN AMBROSE: 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 sighs.

    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.

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

    The clip then shows the two men fist bumping as they are on the same page.

    8th August 2016 - Raw - The Ascension vs. Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose

    The video shows footage of both teams battling out it in a very hard hitting match- before the first bit of tension occured when Reigns blind tagged Dean Ambrose from behind!

    MICHAEL COLE: Roman Reigns has blind tagged himself in- and Ambrose doesn't look happy at all!

    We see Ambrose looking on mouthing the words 'what the fuck?' before the next clip shows Ambrose going for a Suicide Dive onto Reigns & The Ascension!

    COREY GRAVES: Was Dean Ambrose intending to hit Roman Reigns due to the blind tag?!

    The clip then shows Reigns charging at Viktor with a Spear as Viktor & Ambrose were battling in the ring... BEFORE HE NAILED AMBROSE WITH SPEAR!

    MAURO RANALLO: OH NO! REIGNS HAS ACCIDENTALLY HIT AMBROSE WITH SPEAR!!

    We then see The Ascension taking advantage- and gaining the win over Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose. Following the match, Reigns & Ambrose regrouped as Reigns apologised for the accidental Spear... and the two men shook hands... BEFORE AMBROSE NAILED REIGNS WITH DIRTY DEEDS!

    MAURO RANALLO: Ambrose clearly hadn't forgotten about Reigns' blind tag- and this was clearly a case of one-upping his brother!

    The video clip shows the final confrontation between Ambrose & Reigns as Reigns was the guest on The Ambrose Asylum. Reigns came out- but he was NOT happy to see his brother at all.

    ROMAN REIGNS: You know.. last week- we faced The Ascension... and I apologized to you like a MAN for the Spear I hit you with because it wasn't intentional...

    So what the HELL were you thinking by hitting me with Dirty Deeds last week?

    The clip of Ambrose hitting Reigns with Dirty Deeds before Reigns got in Ambrose's face.

    DEAN AMBROSE: I hit you with a Dirty Deeds to just even things up a little... one-up you a little! We lost the match anyway... but it's just a bit of friendly competition. So WHY are you getting so angry for? Do you need someone to wipe your tears away... or take your nappy off for you?

    The fans are shown laughing as well as Ambrose but Reigns clearly wasn't joking.

    ROMAN REIGNS:
    You crossed the line! And I'm warning you Dean.. I'm gonna make you pay by winning the WWE Championship because I'm THE BIG DOG... And you can BELIEVE that!

    Reigns speaks with fire, but Ambrose just isn't fazed at all. The clip then stops, as the music gets more and more intense in the background.

    DEAN AMBROSE:
    DON'T! Don't you dare say that.. don't EVER use The Shield's phrases against ME. As much as I hate Seth Rollins.. the difference between you & Seth Rollins is one thing...

    At least Seth Rollins had the decency to move on from The Shield unlike you.

    We get footage of The Shield dominating together with Triple Powerbombs to the likes of The Undertaker, John Cena & The Rock.

    DEAN AMBROSE: Why can't you just MOVE ON?! Because you might see yourself as The Big Dog.. but I see you as nothing but a cheap knock-off version of The Shield!

    We see clips of Roman Reigns making his way to the arena in The Shield gear with The Shield music- and not being able to move on from The Shield.

    DEAN AMBROSE: That right there... is an example of why the people DON'T like you. And that's the reason why when MY music hits.. the fans go wild because they know *bleep*'s about to go down!

    But when YOUR music hits... the WWE Universe boos because they hate your guts.

    We see clips of the fans cheering Dean Ambrose during his entrances- along with a clip of Roman Reigns always getting boo'd by the fans.

    DEAN AMBROSE:
    When you won your first WWE Championship? The fans didn't like it. When you won the Royal Rumble- the fans didn't like that either.

    Hell, they hated it so much- that you even got your own cousin THE ROCK boo'd!


    We get footage of The Rock raising Roman Reigns' hand after Reigns won the Royal Rumble- to a negative reaction from the fans.

    ROMAN REIGNS: I'm gonna on to become a FOUR time WWE Champion and prove that I AM the face of Monday Night Raw. I'm gonna be the man that waves the flag on the flagship show... and if that means I have to destroy you at Summerslam...

    Then you better believe that I'm gonna do it.

    We see Roman Reigns raising the WWE Championship in the air.

    DEAN AMBROSE:
    You are the man that has been handpicked to be not just the face of Raw.. but the WWE itself! And everybody knows that I'M THE FACE of Monday Nights that the system just can't handle!!

    We see clips of Dean Ambrose just being his crazy self before the clip then begins to fade as Power by Kanye West plays in the background.

    SONG: I’m living in that 21st Century, doing something mean to it

    SONG: No one man should have all that power
    The clock’s ticking, I just count the hours
    Stop tripping, I’m tripping off the power
    Till then, fuck that, the world’s ours


    NARRATOR: Will The Samoan Badass become a 4 time WWE Champion?

    Clips are shown of Roman Reigns hitting opponents with Superman Punches and Spear's.

    ROMAN REIGNS: You're not even gonna make it to the finish line!

    Clips are shown of Dean Ambrose nailing his opponents with Dirty Deeds and being deranged.

    DEAN AMBROSE: I'M THE MAN AROUND HERE!

    The clip then ends with Reigns & Ambrose engaging in a cold staredown in the centre of the ring, and the fans got riled up with cheers due to the excitement of their showdown at the Hottest Party of the Summer.
    The camera cuts back to the Barclays Center as Cole talks about how that video package was amazing, and it looks as if the fans are looking forward to this title match a hell lot more! Graves says that this match could honestly go either way... the brothers that were in arms are now at war- and it's time for the one of the co-main events of Summerslam!

    TRUTH REIGNS

    Damn. The music of Roman Reigns blasts on the PA system as Brooklyn erupts with very loud boos for The Big Dog. And out comes the challenger- as Reigns comes out to the stage. He looks ready and prepared for this match as he wears The Shield gear, and he makes his way to the ring. Graves reminds us how Reigns was berated on Raw for not moving on from The Shield. Cole talks about how the fans are being absolutely relentless tonight towards Reigns- and they show him no mercy whatsoever, as Reigns enters the ring. Reigns looks towards the crowd, and nods as he waits for his opponent.

    RETALIATION

    A HUGE pop for The Kingpin as Dean Ambrose comes out! The WWE Champion stands on the stage wearing a black leather jacket with jeans as he looks fired up tonight. The fans are going nuts for Ambrose, as Ambrose makes his way to the ring. Ranallo talks about how Ambrose has always felt as if he has been overlooked for Reigns, but he knows that he is better- and that title proves it. Cole says that the WWE Championship makes Ambrose the top dog around here, and we'll get to see who the better man truly is out of the two brothers tonight. Ambrose enters the ring, as Reigns looks on- with the two men standing on separate sides.

    JOJO: The following contest is scheduled for one fall- and it is for the WWE Championship!

    The fans shout 'One Fall!' in response to JoJo.

    JOJO: Introducing first, the challenger... from Pensacola, Florida... He is 'The Big Dog'... ROMAN REIGNS!!

    A HUGE reaction of boos from the fans, but Reigns looks focused as he has his eyes on Ambrose. He ignores the crowd's opinions, as he's set on winning the title tonight.

    JOJO: And his opponent... from Cincinnati, Ohio... is 'The Kingpin'... and the WWE Champion of the world... DEAN AMBROSE!!!

    The fans ERUPT with cheers for the champion- as Ambrose raises his title high in the air, with his brother looking on. Reigns nods in approval, as Ambrose isn't messing about here tonight. Ambrose has a serious look on his face, and he hands over the championship to the referee. The referee raises the belt high in the air, before he hands the belt over to the timekeeper... and he calls for the bell to be rung. DING! DING! DING!



    Match Eleven: 'The Big Dog' Roman Reigns vs. 'The Kingpin' Dean Ambrose (c)- WWE Championship Match

    And the bell has been rung as the match is officially underway! The crowd is rowdy as ever as Ambrose & Reigns glare at each other coldly, not taking their eyes off of each other. The two men begin to stare down as the fans chant 'This is Awesome' already, due to the excitement of this bout. However, the respect is shown as the two men fist bump... and the action begins.

    Ambrose & Reigns immediately begin to grapple as the brothers look to gain control over one another.. but it's Reigns who manages to gain control as he has Ambrose in a headlock. Reigns starts to increase the pressure on the headlock, whilst Ambrose does his best to wriggle out of it- and he uses all the strength that he can possibly use to unwrap Reigns' arm around his head... and he eventually does so as Ambrose breaks the hold and he grabs hold of Reigns' arm.

    And now Ambrose is in control- and he immediately erupts with a punch to the face of Reigns, before going for another one- and another one! Ambrose then runs from one side to another in the ring as he rebounds off the ropes- and he looks set to nail Reigns with an elbow to the face but Reigns manages to dodge it as he grabs hold of Ambrose's elbow! He attempts to throw Ambrose to the ground using his elbow- before going for a palm strike to Ambrose's chin as he connects!

    The Lunatic starts to lose balance as he stumbles a bit- and Reigns immediately grabs Ambrose before lifting him in the air... but as Reigns is attempting to do a move- Ambrose manages to cling onto the ropes to prevent Reigns from doing any damage. Cole says that's a smart move from Ambrose- as he's using his surroundings to prevent Reigns from gaining the advantage. Reigns is forced to let go off Ambrose, and Reigns chuckles due to Ambrose being clever in the ring.

    The fans begin to chant 'Let's go Ambrose, Roman Sucks!' in duel chants- as Reigns wastes no time, and he still doesn't care about the fans disapproval of him. He immediately goes over to Ambrose to inflict some more damage.. but from out of nowhere- Ambrose emerges with a headbutt onto Reigns' arm as Reigns stumbles back a little... before Ambrose kicks Reigns in the mid-section and he hooks Reigns' arm around his head before lifting The Big Dog up...



    AND HE NAILS A ROLLING RELEASE SUPLEX!! The fans cheer as Graves says Ambrose calls that move the Money Clip! Reigns has landed on his back and his head- as Ambrose has clearly got the momentum on his side. Ambrose walks over to the corner as he gets up on the top rope and stands on the turnbuckle. He looks to the fans- and nods at them in approval as the fans cheer him on. Ambrose waits for Reigns to get back up to his feet and he slowly does so... AND AMBROSE HITS A FRONT MISSILE DROPKICK!! Cole says that Ambrose is absolutely reckless here tonight as Reigns falls to the ground again- with the champion kicking Big Dog in the face with a vicious looking Dropkick. Graves points out that Ambrose seems to be targeting Reigns' face and his head as that will benefit him in the long-run to finish Reigns off in the match.

    The fans in Brooklyn begin to chant 'Let's go Ambrose!' without the disapproval for Reigns, due to Ambrose being in control. Ambrose continues with his offense, as he erupts with a flurry of stomps to the arm of Reigns. He hits Reigns with another stomp on the arm, before going for another stomp- and another! And four stomps to the arm of Reigns as Ambrose looks to weaken Reigns' arm. Ranallo points out how Reigns' arm is crucial for hitting the Superman Punch- and for adding more force to his Spear's, and Ambrose is clearly looking to prevent Reigns from being able to hit his finishers.

    Ambrose gets up, and he looks towards the crowd before screaming 'I'M THE KINGPIN!' as the fans respond by cheering in agreement. Ambrose looks down at Reigns, and he grabs him by the hair before picking him up... and he goes for an Irish Whip as he throws Reigns into the corner with force! Ambrose looks to the crowd again, and he begins to hype himself up as he charges at Reigns with a Running Forearm Smash... but Reigns comes out of nowhere with a huge kick to the face of Ambrose to prevent the move! And the fans respond with boos as Cole points out how the Brooklyn crowd absolutely hates The Big Dog tonight.

    However, The Big Dog grabs Ambrose's arm before doing exactly the same as what Ambrose did to him- and going for an Irish Whip, and throwing him into the corner. Reigns unloads with a punch to the face of Ambrose, before going for another one- and another one, all to negative reactions from the HOT crowd tonight. Reigns tries to capitalise on this by taking at least six steps back- and he charges at Ambrose with a Corner Clothesline! But Reigns doesn't stop there, as he begins to continuously smash Ambrose in the face with Clothesline. He goes for another one, and another one- and the fans respond with 'BOO' each time Reigns nails the move. Reigns continues, with a fourth shot- and a fifth shot, and then he stops as Ambrose staggers towards the centre of the ring... and Reigns hits another VICIOUS SHOT as Ambrose goes down to the floor.

    Graves points out how Reigns has been targeting Ambrose's head successfully, as Ambrose begins to wince in pain by holding his head. And as Reigns looks to head over to Ambrose- the fans continue to boo as they chant 'ROMAN SUCKS!' loudly and over and over again, Reigns looks on- as Cole says that he's wasting some valuable time here, before The Big Dog simply continues to brush it off as he knows the title is more important. Reigns immediately goes over to Ambrose to pick him up... but Ambrose comes out of nowhere with a punch to the arm of Roman! He then kicks Roman's arm- before kicking Reigns again but in the mid-section... and he bends Reigns forward and he hooks both of his arms behind Reigns' head as he looks to finish his brother off already in the match...

    But Ambrose is unable to hit Dirty Deeds as Reigns begins to hug Ambrose tightly. And Ambrose looks to hit the move again as Reigns moves his arms- but as he does so, Reigns hugs Ambrose tightly again which frustrates Ambrose due to Reigns blocking his Dirty Deeds attempts... before Reigns uses all his strength to lift Ambrose up into the air over his shoulders... FLAPJACK TO AMBROSE! Ambrose lands hard on his face and chest first as the fans continue to boo! Ambrose rolls over to the other side of the ring- as he drapes his head on the ropes to regroup... but Reigns notices this and he looks to seize another chance for more damage as he quickly exits the ring. Reigns begins to rile himself up as the fans continue to chant 'ROMAN SUCKS!' and he runs rapidly towards Ambrose with a big kick to Ambrose's head...



    DRIVE-BY FROM REIGNS!! Ambrose goes down viciously on the mat due to the effect of Reigns' Drive-By. Reigns looks towards the crowd, as one member shouts 'FUCK YOU ROMAN!' - and Reigns bursts out into laughter, before ignoring that member as he heads back into the ring. The fans then begin to chant 'FUCK YOU ROMAN!' as Reigns immediately goes for the cover as he looks to win the belt... One! Two! BUT AMBROSE KICKS OUT!

    And the fans cheer as Ambrose kicks out at the first pin attempt of the match. Cole points out that Reigns is going to need a lot more to take Ambrose down. Reigns knows this full well, as he picks Ambrose up from off the mat. He grabs Ambrose and walks over to the ropes, before he begins to kick Ambrose in the mid-section. He kicks Ambrose again, and he goes for another one- and another kick, and then he continue with the kicks as the referee tells Reigns to stop. Reigns understands- and due to the respect he has for his brother, he stops with the kicks. Reigns takes a few steps back, and he runs towards Ambrose with a Clothesline... but Ambrose sees it coming! He grabs hold of Reigns' arm that he was going to hit the Clothesline with- and he twists it as Reigns screams... before Ambrose nails a Clothesline of his own with so much force that Reigns is knocked over the top rope!

    Ambrose begins to psyche himself up in the ring again as the fans begin to cheer- with Ambrose possibly being back in control again. Ambrose looks to the fans, and Ranallo says that Ambrose looks as if he's going to go for a Suicide Dive. Ambrose runs from one side to another before jumping out of the ring for an Air Lunatic with absolutely no care whatsoever for his body... BUT ROMAN REIGNS NAILS A SUPERMAN PUNCH TO A FLYING AMBROSE!!! And the fans respond with a mixed reaction as Graves says that Reigns understands Ambrose's reckless style better than anybody as he continues to target the champion's head.

    This leads to Reigns immediately picking himself up as the referee begins to count- but Reigns grabs hold of Ambrose, and places his brother back into the ring. Reigns enters the ring too- and Reigns gets up on the top rope to stand on the turnbuckle as he looks to take it aerial. Ambrose is getting back up to his feet as he doesn't stay down... and he waits for Ambrose to turn around before launching beautifully with a Top-Rope Clothesline... but Ambrose sees it coming as he manages to duck! But Reigns hits the floor and lands on his feet... to which Ambrose grabs Reigns from behind and wraps his arm around Reigns' neck before twisting Reigns' right arm... and Ambrose has Reigns locked in a CROSSFACE CHICKENWING!!

    Ambrose has the Submission move locked in whilst standing up as the fans cheer- and Reigns begins to scream in pain as Ambrose secures the move even more by inflicting more force onto the hold! And Reigns is doing his absolute best to break out of the move... and just as he gets more closer and closer to breaking out of the hold... AMBROSE TAKES REIGNS TO THE GROUND! Ranallo says that Ambrose has the submission manoeuvre locked in tightly as he is looking to make his brother tap out! Ambrose can be heard screaming 'TAP!' as the referee asks Reigns if he wants to give in, but Reigns pays no attention as he's trying to break out. Graves reminds us that due to Ambrose targeting Reigns' head and arms- it's a lot more difficult for Reigns to break out.

    Reigns begins to crawl over to the ropes but Ambrose isn't having it- and Reigns' face seems to be going red as Ambrose continues with the hold. The referee is fully focused on Ambrose now- not focusing on Reigns trying to break out as Ambrose has his face on Reigns' head... and REIGNS BITES AMBROSE'S FINGER!!! Ambrose screams in pain, but the referee didn't notice due to Ambrose having his back towards the referee, and Ambrose was covering Reigns' face with his hand. The fans boo LOUDLY as they noticed it in the ring and on the TitanTron- and despite Ambrose having the move locked in still, the bite allows for Ambrose's pressure to decrease leading to Reigns slowly, but surely crawling over to the ropes and grabbing hold of them!

    Ambrose is forced to break the submission as he lets go off Roman... but he immediately gets back up as this has clearly just pissed Ambrose off even more! Ambrose argues with the referee- but the referee says he didn't see anything! Ambrose is just appalled- as Cole says that the bite was an illegal move, but this showcases how Reigns is willing to do anything to become WWE Champion! Ambrose walks over to the top rope- and he gets back up on the turnbuckle, as Graves says that Ambrose seems to be going for another Missile Dropkick. He waits for Reigns to get up... and Reigns slowly does so as Ambrose launches with a Front Missile Dropkick... BUT REIGNS GRABS AMBROSE... AND HE TRANSITIONS INTO A SIT-OUT POWERBOMB...



    AND HE NAILS IT!!! Ambrose lands hard on his back and head as Reigns goes for the cover as the fans continue their 'ROMAN SUCKS!' chant. ONE! TWO! BUT AMBROSE KICKS OUT AGAIN!! The fans cheer as Reigns nods in disapproval, and The Big Dog seems to be getting very flustered. Cole says that Reigns did something that he normally wouldn't do, and it didn't pay off- and Reigns seems to be in a battle with his own mind. But then Reigns begins to nod, as he seems to have find himself a solution. And he looks back at Ambrose who is slowly starting to get up again... but Reigns quickly grabs hold of Ambrose before lifting Ambrose over his shoulder... SAMOAN DROP TO AMBROSE! Ambrose lands hard on his back again, and he crawls over to the ropes to prevent Reigns from pinning. Reigns notices this, and he nods in disapproval as he grabs Ambrose yet again. Cole says that Reigns seems to be getting A LOT more aggressive to Ambrose than he has been to his past opponents.

    Reigns picks Ambrose up AGAIN as he lifts Ambrose up over his shoulders for a third time tonight... and Ranallo says that Reigns seems be going for another Sit-Out Powerbomb... but the members in the audience GASP as Reigns does something completely different as he runs over towards the ring... AND REIGNS HITS AMBROSE WITH A POWERBOMB OUT OF THE RING WITH FORCE!!! The fans begin to boo loudly as Ambrose lands outside the ring on his back, and Reigns looks towards the crowd. He begins to rile himself up again as he seems to have gained that confidence back... whilst the fans continue their boos. And Reigns stops, and he pauses- and he looks towards the fans, as he begins to pay more attention to their jeers. Reigns mouths the words 'Come on guys!' in confusion as he just wants the fans to stop booing him, but they refuse to. Graves says that all Reigns wants is the WWE Universe's approval, but they refuse to give it to him.

    Reigns looks at Ambrose- and he motions that he's going over the top rope as he looks set for a Suicide Dive! He runs from one side to another... but he STOPS. He notices that Ambrose is back up ALREADY and Ambrose is slowly entering the ring. Reigns notices this, and this unsettles The Big Dog as Graves points out how Ambrose is refusing to give up like always, and it's just making Reigns a LOT more frustrated as all Reigns wants to do is be champion!

    Ambrose seems to have been damaged A LOT but he enters the ring, and he looks to compose himself as Reigns looks on in nothing but confusion. Reigns immediately walks over to Ambrose as he grabs his brother by the head- and he THROWS him with power onto the corner. And Reigns begins to unload with kicks to the mid-section as he doesn't seem to stop! The fans start to boo again before bursting into another 'LET'S GO AMBROSE, ROMAN SUCKS' chant as referee begins count... but Reigns continues with the kicks.

    ONE!

    Reigns explodes with another kick, and then another as the fans continue their anti-Roman chants.

    TWO!

    Reigns switches it up from the kicks, and this time he explodes with a flurry of punches to the face this time this time. He responds with another shot, and then another shot as Graves says that this is completely out of character for Reigns, as he did the exact same thing earlier, but he stopped before the refeee could even count. And Ranallo points out how Ambrose seems to have been busted open on his head as his head bleeds!

    THREE!

    FOUR!

    FIVE!

    And Reigns stops with the offense as the fans carry on chanting 'LET'S GO AMBROSE, ROMAN SUCKS!' Ambrose has been hit so much that he has hit the canvas with blood pouring out of his head, and Reigns looks towards the fans... and he screams 'STOP IT!!!' as he EXPLODES! But this just infuriates the crowd even more, as Cole says that you can't tell Brooklyn, New York what to do... and the 'ROMAN SUCKS' chants just get even more louder and louder. Reigns doesn't stop looking at the crowd, and he shouts 'STOP!!!' again but the fans just aren't listening! Ranallo says that the crowd's reactions towards Reigns are visibily affecting Reigns more and more, and he's just getting a LOT more angrier.

    An angry Reigns turns his eyes back to his opponent... and he taps his hand- and motions for a Punch as he looks set to hit one of his signature moves. And Ambrose is slowly, and slowly, and slowly getting back up to his feet again despite being busted open as Graves says that this is a prime example of Ambrose's mind-set in his matches. He doesn't care about how much punishment he takes, he will ALWAYS get back up. And Ambrose grabs hold of the ropes again, but little does he know that Reigns is hell-bent on finishing him off! Ambrose eventually gets up to his feet... and he turns around...

    SUPERMAN PUNCH TO DEAN AMBROSE!!! The fans boo even louder and louder as Reigns has nailed Ambrose with one of his signature moves to his WOUND!!! Reigns sees that his brother is bleeding... but he doesn't give a damn! Ambrose is STILL refusing to stay down as he begins to crawl over to Reigns, and Reigns gets even more frustrated. Reigns screams 'STAY DOWN!!' before using all of that frustration and anger to walk over to the corner before looking at the fans... and he ROARS as he looks set on finishing Ambrose off. Ambrose gets back up again... and he turns around... SPEAR!!!!! Reigns blasts Ambrose with a Spear before going for the cover as Ranallo says that we have must have a NEW WWE Champion! ONE! TWO! THR- NO WAY!!!! AMBROSE HAS KICKED OUT AGAIN!! The fans erupt with cheers before they chant 'Let's go Ambrose!' as Ambrose is STILL in it. Ranallo says that Ambrose has a heart of a lion! But on the other hand, Reigns can't believe it. As a matter of fact... Reigns is SHOCKED. Graves questions what is next for Reigns, seeing as Ambrose has just kicked out following Reigns' power moves?! And the frustration on Reigns' face is visible as he begins to punch the mat.

    He throws a huge fit in the ring as Ambrose is refusing to give in despite having a bloodied forehead. Reigns gets back up on his feet, and he walks over to the referee- and he begins to SHOUT at the referee. He can be heard shouting 'WHAT'S GOING ON?!' and Cole says that Ambrose may be bloodied, but Reigns is the one who is losing his mind! The referee warns Reigns, and tells him to back down. Reigns refuses to back down. He continues to shout at the referee... BUT AMBROSE ROLLS REIGNS UP FROM OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A SCHOOLBOY PIN AS THE FANS ARE GOING NUTS!!! ONE! TWO! THR- BUT REIGNS KICKS OUT!!!

    And the fans continue to boo. Ambrose clearly had enough energy for the pin... but he doesn't quite have that same energy to get back up as he begins to crawl over to the ropes again. Graves says that Ambrose has been doing this throughout the match, but he seems to be dizzy right now. Reigns immediately gets up, and it looks as if the roll-up attempt has angered The Big Dog even more. No. Scratch that. Reigns looks absolutely INFURIATED. Ranallo says that Reigns clearly feels mocked by Ambrose not being able to stay down... and Reigns motions for another Superman Punch as Ambrose slowly gets back up to his feet. Ambrose is back up... and he slowly... and he slowly goes to walk over to Reigns as Reigns charges at Ambrose with another Superman Punch... BUT AMBROSE GRABS HOLD OF REIGNS' ARM...



    AND HE REVERSES THE SUPERMAN PUNCH ATTEMPT INTO DIRTY DEEDS!!! Ambrose BLASTS Reigns with his finisher with POWER and The Barclays Center has just EXPLODED again as Ambrose goes for the cover. Graves says that this could be it! ONE! TWO! THR- NOOOOOOOO! REIGNS HAS KICKED OUT AGAIN!!! The tension and drama in this arena is at an ALL TIME HIGH as Reigns kicks out following Ambrose's finisher. Ambrose has also kicked out of Reigns' finisher. Cole says that Ambrose has been beaten up so badly in this match, that his finishing move might not have been as effective.

    Ambrose is on the floor, but he begins to kneel on the floor as he looks very, VERY light-headed. Ambrose is trying his hardest to get back up- and he slowly does so again. Ranallo says that Reigns has thrown EVERYTHING at Ambrose but Ambrose is still standing. The fans chant 'LET'S GO AMBROSE' as this seems to fuel The Kingpin! And Ambrose is looking to finish Reigns off- as he walks over to the corner, despite stumbling a little, and he uses the turnbuckle to keep himself in position. He waits for Reigns to get up... with blood dripping out of his head like water from a tap. Ambrose begins to psyche himself up again as he notices that his brother is getting back up to his feet... and Ranallo says that this could be Ambrose's last chance to win the match... and Ambrose looks to set Reigns up for another finishing move as one more could seal the deal...

    WAIT, WHAT?!??!?! From out of nowhere, TWO men wearing black snapback caps have GRABBED AMBROSE'S FEET FROM THE BOTTOM ROPE!! The fans are confused- and the referee notices there's a distraction going on, but as soon he turns his attention- the two men have let go off of Ambrose's feet before he could even see! Ambrose looks confused as ever, and he turns around to see what the hell is going on as the cameras shift to the two men outside the ring...

    ...

    IT'S THE USOS!!!



    "WHAT THE HELL ARE THE USOS DOING HERE?!??!!" screams Michael Cole as Ambrose has a VERY confused look on his face. He doesn't understand, and the fans are going MAD with boos. Ambrose looks towards The Usos- and his confusion turns to anger... and The Usos look very seriously towards Ambrose... before they begin to burst into a fit of laughter as Ranallo asks why are The Usos here?!?! Cole asks what in the world are they doing?!

    A bloodied and beaten Ambrose begins to scream at The Usos- asking what the hell are they doing, and Graves says that Ambrose is wasting valuable time! The Lunatic has no choice but to brush the distraction off, as he turns around to put his focus back on his opponent...



    SUPERMAN PUNCH FROM ROMAN REIGNS!!! AMBROSE HAS WALKED STRAIGHT INTO ANOTHER SUPERMAN PUNCH!!! And the fans are going absolutely CRAZY with boos as Ranallo says that Reigns has capitalised off the distraction, and he could easily go for the pin right now! But as angry as Reigns was, he gets back up on his feet with a face of confusion. He walks over to the corner, as he turns his attention directly to The Usos. Reigns begins to shout 'GET OUT OF HERE!' as he clearly isn't happy with his cousins. Cole says that Reigns seems to be baffled by The Usos' involvement... But his cousins can't help but grin at Reigns, as they clearly find this whole situation amusing... but the bombshell is soon dropped as soon as Reigns begins to laugh back at his cousins!

    Reigns then looks Ambrose whilst pointing at The Usos- he shouts 'THIS IS MY FAMILY!'- and his cousins scream back 'Go and get that title Rome!' to a LOUD reaction of boos from the crowd. Cole says that all has been revealed, this was ALL A RUSE!!! Ranallo shouts that REIGNS HAS BETRAYED HIS BROTHER!! HE'S BETRAYED THE WWE UNIVERSE!! Reigns turns back to his former team-mate, and he looks into the sky and he ROARS as the fans shout BOO in response. Reigns waits for Ambrose to slowly get up as Ambrose looks towards Reigns whilst he stirs... not with a face of anger- but pure shock. Pure disappointment. Ambrose is defenceless right now, and the only thing he has the courage to do is get back to his feet- with his eyes locked on Roman, and no fight left him in. He mouths the words 'Why?' as Reigns doesn't take any notice. He has a stone cold look on his face, and he charges at Ambrose...



    A SECOND SPEAR TO AMBROSE!!! But that line was said by Cole with nothing but sorrow as Reigns BLASTS Ambrose onto the canvas, with the fans going absolutely ape-shit with boos due to the betrayal we have just seen tonight. And Reigns goes for the cover as Ambrose has nothing left to give. ONE!...TWO!...THREE!

    JOJO: YOUR WINNER AND THE NEWWWWWW WWE CHAMPION OF THE WORLD... ROMAN REIGNS!

    Roman Reigns is officially now a FOUR TIME WWE Champion!! But not everybody in this arena can be as happy as Reigns tonight. Reigns' music hits on the PA system but the fans aren't having it as they scream 'BULLSHIT' over and over again!!! Cole says that this was clearly a SET-UP!!! Reigns has fooled EVERYBODY!!! If you thought New York were raucous at the sight of Reigns before... imagine how raucous they are NOW. Reigns looks to the Brookyln fans, as he smirks at the fans- before a shit-eating grin appears on his face...



    The entire New York crowd begin to chant 'FUCK YOU ROMAN' over and over again. On the other hand, Ambrose is out cold in the ring. He is not moving at all. The only thing that is moving, is the blood from Ambrose's head. Graves points out that not only did Ambrose lose his title... but he lost his only friend in the WWE, the man who he considered as a brother. Ambrose has lost everything here tonight. Reigns looks towards his cousins again, as he puts his thumbs up.

    And the fans continue to be relentless as ever due to the betrayal of Dean Ambrose by his own brother. The Usos walk over to the timekeepers area- and they grab the WWE Championship before entering the ring. As Dean Ambrose lays in the ring- battered and bruised, The Usos hand their cousin his WWE Championship belt. Reigns kicks Ambrose out of the ring, showing no remorse and no regrets- before he raises the WWE Championship HIGH in the air as the fans continue to react with deafening boos. Jey Uso stands on the left- whereas Jimmy Uso stands on the right, and Reigns stands in the middle of the twin brothers before The Usos lift Roman Reigns up onto their shoulders with The Big Dog screaming 'THIS IS OUR YARD NOW!'




    The camera shifts over to members of the audience. Some are upset. Some are angry. Some are even putting up their middle fingers to show their disapproval for Reigns.

    Graves says that it doesn't matter how anybody feels- because at the end of the night, it was Roman Reigns who got the final laugh. Ranallo says that he still doesn't understand why?! Cole also asks why on earth would Reigns need The Usos to help him when he had Ambrose beat? Why did The Usos get involved?! So many questions! Graves says that the bloodline is right there- with The Usos & Roman Reigns being cousins, but as Cole said, there are so many questions that need to be answered right now.



    The Brooklyn crowd are still hostile as they come around to the shock that Roman Reigns has aligned with his cousins the Uso’s and has turned his back on his brother, Dean Ambrose and the WWE Universe. The live camera floats around the arena to capture some of the WWE Universe reactions before heading over to the Smackdown Commentary team table.

    Jim Ross says that we have just witnessed a shocking turn of events before questioning how Roman Reigns can put the WWE Championship before his friendship, before his brotherhood with Dean Ambrose. “JBL” says that it’s about time that Roman woke up and smelt the coffee. Layfield says these fans turned their backs on Roman many years ago and Roman has finally done what was needed and has embraced the hate to make him stronger and capture the Championship! Booker says that he hates to agree with “JBL” but he has a point. Booker though says that while Ambrose and Reigns were like brothers- they’re not family! Booker says that the Uso’s and Roman Reigns however are family and we all know that blood is thicker than water and that the Samoan Dynasty is about to run Raw, dawg.

    Jim Ross then thanks the crowd one final time for being here tonight and for the fans at home tuning in! He says that he hopes they’ve all enjoyed the hottest party of the summer- Summerslam! “JR” then reminds us that while Summerslam has been simmering all night long we are about to reach the boiling point as up next, it’s the Main Event of the evening! The five-man ladder match for the vacant World Heavyweight Championship!

    The Titantron then goes live and a video package begins to air on the big screen. It shows the World Heavyweight Championship being won and held by the greats of the past. Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Sting, Triple H, The Rock and many more! The footage then shows the World Heavyweight Championship as the voice over asks who will follow in the footsteps of legends?!

    “Champion” by Chipmunk then begins to play in the background as the video package then shows the journey of Finn Balor, Apollo Crews, Seth Rollins, Neville & Bray Wyatt’s journey to Summerslam!

    “I'm always pushing myself to the limit
    Making sure I stay ahead
    You made me who I am, from the words you said”


    The video package shows Shane Mcmahon and Eric Bischoff announcing the return of the World Heavyweight Championship and the announcement of only those that impress and earn their spot will compete for the Championship at Summerslam.

    “Some people have to learn
    Some people wait their turn”


    The Video package shows all five men in the early days of their WWE careers down in NXT and around the Performance Centre, learning and studying. Working tirelessly in the gym and in the ring.

    “Some people have to fight

    The video now shows all five men giving it everything in the ring and overcoming some serious injuries and setbacks. The Rollins injury highlighted. It also shows all five men’s recent performances on Smackdown Live.

    “Some people don't believe

    But I was born a champion!”


    The Video package ends with the announcement from Shane Mcmahon that this will be a ladder match as all five men’s names are announced and each are shown in a background which shows many of the previous legends and Hall of Famers to hold the prestige’s World Heavyweight Championship! The video package ends with once more the message of who will follow in the footsteps of legends?! Who will be the next World Heavyweight Champion?!


    JOJO: WWE Universe! Please welcome Smackdown Live General Manager and Smackdown Live Commissioner! Eric Bischoff and Shane Mcmahon!

    HERE COMES THE MONEY!!

    Brooklyn gives a large pop as Shane Mcmahon comes shuffling out on to the stage holding a briefcase in hand. Behind him is Eric Bischoff who has a smile on his face and also receives a good reception as both men make their way down to the ring. Shane and Eric walk around ringside and interact with the fans before they both enter the ring. In the ring and Shane Mcmahon calls in the Referee before unclipping and opening the case. Shane then holds the case up as Eric grabs the content and lifts it in the air for the crowd to see. Brooklyn responds with more positive cheers before Eric passes it to the Referee who lifts it up once more before placing it on the hook and calling for the hook to be lifted to suspend over the ring. The camera then zooms in on the Championship now hanging above the ring, glistening and shining.


    Shane Mcmahon and Eric then exit the ring and take their seats at ringside and get ready to watch the spectacle of the match. Jojo then re-enters the ring and gets ready to announce the match rules and the match participants.

    Apollo steps out on to the stage to cheers from the crowd as he takes deep breaths and puffs out of his cheeks as he makes his way down the ramp. The commentary team are in agreement that this is Apollo’s first time on a big WWE stage and if anyone is feeling the pressure the most- it’s got to be Apollo Crews!

    The crowd pop for the Real Rock N’ Rolla has he steps out with his black leather jacket collars turned up and with an excited look across his face. Balor acknowledges the fan support before hitting his pose in turn with the beat of the theme before entering the ring and taking his place. The commentary team confirm that Finn Balor is making his WWE PPv debut and it could be a night that he will never forget if he can climb the ladder and retrieve the Championship!

    JOJO: And their opponent! Weighing 285 pounds and hailing from the Wyatt Compound! The Eater of Worlds and new Face of Fear! Braaayyyyy Wyyaatttt!

    LIVE IN FEAR!!

    It’s lights out in the Barclays Centre as Brooklyn responds by lighting up the arena like fireflies with their mobile devices as they watch Bray Wyatt enter the stage. Bray arrives with his lantern in hand and anger in his eyes but he’s alone. The commentary team remind us of the brawl that took place backstage between Braun and Kane and the latest news is that both men were removed from the Barclays Centre and are banned from re-entering the building. Bray reaches the bottom of the ramp and blows out the lantern as the WWE Universe responds with cheers and a couple of boo’s for the Wyatt Family leader as he now enters the ring and stands in the middle looking up at the Championship belt as Neville, Finn, Seth and Apollo just stare at Bray with intrigue.

    The crowd are buzzing with excitement as all five men begin to move around the ring and share some last-minute trash talk and exchange of words. Suddenly Shane Mcmahon is shown getting up off his seat and approaching Jojo as he whispers something in her ear and she nods along. The commentary are intrigued by what Shane Mcmahon is saying and it soon becomes clear as Jojo once more takes to the mic and speaks to the WWE Universe.

    JOJO: WWE Universe! I have just been informed that this will no longer be a five-man ladder match for the World Heavyweight Championship and that there will now be a sixth entrant via the command of Smackdown Commissioner Shane Mcmahon!

    Introducing and making his return to the WWE! Weighing 235 pounds and hailing from Battle creek, Michigan! The whole dam’ show! ROOOBBB VAAANNNN DAAAMMMMM!


    ONE OF A KIND!!

    The crowd go crazy as Rob Van Dam steps out on to the stage. The noise goes up once more as “RVD” hits his taunt and the Brooklyn crowd join in. The commentary team are hyped for the return of Rob Van Dam and announce that Shane Mcmahon has just upped the ante once more with the inclusion of Mr Tuesday Nights, Rob Van Dam! “RVD” makes his way down the ramp and slides into the ring and stands in the centre, almost like an outsider as the five other men just stare at him. The crowd are chanting “Holy shit!” as the ring bell sounds and the match is officially underway!



    Main Event: Finn Balor vs Seth Rollins vs Apollo Crews vs Nevile vs Rob Van Dam- Six Man Ladder Match for the World Heavyweight Championship

    The crowd are cheering with anticipation as the live camera floats around ringside as the various ladders are set up around the ring and laid out in front of the crowd barriers. The camera then focuses on the ring where the six men begin to step around the canvas, waiting for the first person to make their move so the match can explode into life. Bray Wyatt is the first man to make his move and he drops down, rolls out of the ring and begins to laugh. He urges the others to fight while he takes a step back on and watches on. Rollins then forearm smashes Balor from the side and the match bursts into life as Rob Van Dam attempts to fend off both Neville and Apollo Crews.

    Rollins and Balor are now trading strikes in the corner as Rollins takes control- driving his shoulders into the stomach of Balor before following it up with knee strikes. Rollins then chops away at Balor, lighting up his chest as the crowd “Wooo” along with each strike. On the other side and “RVD” is fending off both Neville and Apollo with his educated feet. Kicks to the thighs, stomach and ribs of both Neville and Apollo keeps them at bay. “RVD” then taunts with the crowd but before he could finish his taunt he receives a double drop kick from both Neville and Apollo that drops him and sends him rolling out of the ring. As Van Dam rolled out of the ring to catch his breath Bray would wait like a Venus fly trap and would knee Rob in the stomach before slamming him head and shoulder first into the crowd barrier and steel ladder that laid below it.

    Neville and Apollo would then both kip back up before trading strikes at each other as the crowd cheered along. Neville would swing a right hand and Apollo would duck underneath one before grabbing Neville and attempting to lift him up over his head with a German suplex. Neville would land on his feet though and would instead grip Apollo around the waist and would lift him up with a German suplex of his own as the back of Apollo’s head would rattle against the canvas and send him rolling out of the ring. Neville would then see Rollins fighting with Balor in the corner and would run at them. Rollins would see it coming and would move out of the way. Neville would leap into Finn Balor and next would come a move for the highlight reel as Neville would monkey flip Balor into the air only for Finn Balor to show amazing ability and would land on top of Rollins and would send him flying out of the ring through the second rope with a hurricarana as the Brooklyn crowd popped for the ability and “JR” would call amazing ability from the Demon King!

    Neville would then run across the ring, but Finn Balor would be ready for him and would hit the Sling blade in the middle of the ring as the crowd would pop and chant his name. Balor would now be the only one in the ring and would look up at the Championship hanging above. Bray Wyatt though would enter the ring and the two would go face to face!

    The crowd started cheering- clearly excited for this first encounter as “JBL” would yell “Demon King, meet the Eater of Worlds, Bray Wyatt!” as Booker T would announce it’s about to go down! Suddenly the shots fired back and forth as both men swung at the other with hard right hands, each one knocking their opponent back a little more each time!

    Bray!
    Balor!
    Bray!
    Balor!
    Bray!

    Bray Wyatt would then block a strike from Finn before firing back with a hard-hitting head butt that would stun the Demon King. Wyatt would then run against the ropes and would slam into Finn like a truck with an explosive splash that would knock him down. Bray would then follow it up by running the ropes again and leaping into the air with a seated senton as his body weight crushed the sternum and ribs of Finn Balor as he yelled out in agony. Bray Wyatt would then stand back up and would smile and taunt the crowd that he’s going to claim the Championship and when he does, he will have the entire world in his hands.

    Rob Van Dam would then be back up and would begin to slide a ladder into the ring and underneath the ropes. “RVD” would then slide into the ring but before he could do anymore, Bray would lay boots into him, kicking him all over before grabbing the steel ladder, picking it up and then dropping it across the back of Van Dam with a crash. Bray would then spot Neville and Apollo leaping up onto the ring apron and would pick up the same ladder and would drive at Apollo and Neville knocking them both of the ring apron and back down to the outside flooring. Bray would then place the ladder in the centre of the ring and would begin to climb the ladder for the first attempt of the night to unhook and capture the gold.

    “JBL” would announce that Bray has a free run at trying to grab the Championship with everyone else currently down. Seth Rollins would then begin to move on the outside and would slide into the ring before driving his forearm into the back of Wyatt who was only a few rungs up on the ladder. Rollins would then pull-down Bray by his shirt and would kick him in the stomach before running the ropes and hitting him with a Daniel Bryan like running knee strike- knocking him down! Rollins would then quickly get up and would begin to scale the ladder in quicker fashion when Balor would stop his attempt. Balor was back up and would grab Rollins feet, stopping him taking another step. Seth though would wriggle one foot free before kicking Balor in the face and continuing his climb. Balor would then go to the opposite side of the ladder and would begin to climb it as well. Both men were now on the ladder and pretty high up as they would begin to trade punches. Bray Wyatt though had other idea’s as he would now be back on his feet and would run the ropes before pushing the ladder with such force that it would tumble over and both Rollins and Balor would come crashing down landing face and neck first getting caught up in the ropes with a nasty landing as the crowd gasped at the fall from both Finn Balor and Seth Rollins as Bray Wyatt began to laugh.

    Jim Ross would announce that this match is dangerous and that we could ask Edge, Christian, HBK, Razor Ramon, the Hardy Boyz, hell- anyone that’s been in a ladder match that this match will take years of your career and each fall from that ladder changes you! “JBL” agrees and says he spent his career trying to avoid ladder matches for that reason but tonight that ladder is the stairway to history and one of these men will become the next World Heavyweight Champion! Apollo Crews then slides into the ring with a smaller ladder while Neville does the same on the other side of the ring. Both men then rush Bray Wyatt and before the New Face of Fear can do anything- He’s crushed between the two smaller ladders by Apollo and Neville. Van Dam would then enter the ring and Apollo and Neville would look to do the same. They both would rush Van Dam with force, but Van Dam would wow the crowd by dropping down and doing the splits as Neville and Apollo would clatter each other with the smaller ladders. Van Dam would then pop back up and would leap into the air with a kick twice, one for Neville and one for Apollo knocking them both down as their own ladders fell on top of them. Van Dam would then go to the closest turnbuckle where Apollo was underneath the ladder and would climb the turnbuckle. Van Dam would then deliver vintage “RVD” as he would land his split-leg moonsault on top of the ladder, crashing Apollo underneath as he rolled out of the ring in pain holding his stomach and ribs as the crowd would chant his name.

    Booker would say that Rob Van Dam will take any and every risk and has done so his whole career and that if someone is going to stop him winning this match, they might have to take even more risks then him and that’s almost impossible! Van Dam was out of the ring in pain and Apollo and Neville would join him- rolling out to recover. Back in the ring and Seth Rollins had re set up the ladder and would start to climb it- rung by rung! Rollins would reach the just above the halfway mark when Finn Balor would once more stop him. He would push the ladder forward and for the second time Rollins would fall from the ladder as it tipped towards the ropes but Rollins would show lightening quick reflexes and would use the ropes to springboard off and..




    ..BAH GAWD ROLLINGS WITH MOONSAULT SPLASH USING THE TOP ROPE CAME CRASHING DOWN ON TOP OF NEVILLE, APOLLO AND VAN DAM!! Shouted Jim Ross as the crowd popped and chanted “THAT WAS AWESOME!” as Rollins came down crashing down on the three men. The acrobatics were not down their though as Finn Balor was perched in the ring and ready to strike. He waited for all four men to stand back up and once they did- Balor would run the ropes and would then leap over the top, clearing the top rope with ease and would land perfectly on top of all four men wiping them out and earning a “HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!” chant from the Brooklyn crowd. Jim Ross would say that the Demon King just took flight and rained down on those that oppose him! “JBL” though would turn the attention back to the ring where Bray Wyatt was now using the ropes to stand up and says that with the five other men down- Bray has a clear shot of grabbing the World Heavyweight Championship! Bray sensed his chance and once finally up, he would grab up the nearest ladder and would set it up in the centre of the ring. Bray Wyatt would then hike up his trousers and would begin to scale the ladder, step by step!

    Bray would reach the top and would begin to stretch up. His one hand would touch the Championship and would cause it to swing as Bray continued to try and grab it without any success. Finn Balor would then enter the ring and the crowd would begin to cheer. Balor would then grab one of the smaller ladders in the ring and would place it on the second rope and would then balance the other side of it on one of the taller ladder rungs. Finn would then go around the other side and would begin to scale the ladder quickly. Bray would see him coming and would stop his attempt to reach the Championship and instead would look to land the first strike, but Finn would block it before sending an elbow to face of Bray. Another one would then follow by another as Bray was now teetering on the edge of the step and only holding on with one hand. Finn Balor would line up one final punch and would drive it into the cheek of Bray and just when Bray looked like he was going to fall, releasing both hands he would grab the ladder and regain his balance. Finn Balor would then do the unthinkable as he would dive over Bray and would catch him on the way down bringing him down with him via the..




    ..SUNSET FLIP FROM BALOR TO WYATT ON TO THE LADDER!! GOOD GOD ALMITGHY HE COULD BE BROKEN IN HALF!! Yelled Jim Ross as the crowd went bananas with a pop as they once more chanted “HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!” over and over as the replay showed the sunset flip from Balor off the top ladder to Bray crushing down on the smaller ladder that was set up below. “JBL” describes the replay as carnage, an utter train wreck and says that Bray Wyatt is out of this match! There’s no way he can come back from that. The live footage shows the ladder and it’s caved in from Bray crushing down on it from above. Wyatt and Balor have both been pulled out of the ring by the Referee and he calls down medical support from the back who check on both men. The action then returns to the ring where Apollo Crews has slid underneath the ropes and has entered with Neville trailing behind him. Apollo attempts to start climbing the ladder, but he’s quickly pulled down by Neville. The two men begin exchanging punches when Neville knocks Apollo back and then leaps up on to the ladder steps before leaping back of with a splash. Apollo though shows his strength and catches Neville before Gorilla pressing him in the ring and dropping him down on the canvas. Apollo then leaps into the air with a backflip and lands on Neville with a splash!

    Booker calls the action and says that Apollo calls that the Apollo Combination! He says in a normal match he would get the pin right here, but this match is all about climbing that ladder and retrieving that Championship gold. Apollo now haven taken out Neville senses the chance and climbs the ladder and almost reaches the top when both Rollins and Van Dam renter the action. “RVD” is carrying a steel chair that he got from ringside and Rollins reacts first, pulling down Apollo by his tights off the ladder and Apollo lands on his feet. “RVD” then throws the chair at Apollo but Crews catches the chair with quick thinking. However before Apollo can do anymore- Rob Van Dam leaps up and smashes Crews in the face with a kick to the chair..



    ..VAN DAMINATOR!! Shouted “JBL” as chair bounced of the skull of Apollo Crews knocking him down. Rob Van Dam would then rush back to his feet but Rollins would now have the chair in hand and would drive it into the stomach of Van Dam before he would raise it up and would smash it back down across the back of “RVD” as the steel chair would bend across the back of the former ECW legend as the crowd gasped at the sound of the thud. Rollins would then watch Rob Van Dam ride around in pain before a sick smile would etch across the face of Rollins as the commentary team speculated what was going through the mind of Seth Rollins. It would soon become clear as Rollins would climb the ladder a few steps before turning around and measuring where Van Dam was now hovering. Rollins would then leap off the ladder and to the crowd and commentary teams shock Seth would use his foot to crush down on the back of Van Dam’s head and lower neck driving his face down and implanting it into the steel chair with the..



    ..CURB STOMP! SETH ROLLINS WITH THE SICKENING CURB STOMP! Screamed Jim Ross. WE’VE NOT SEEN THAT MOVE IN YEARS! Shouted Booker T as “JBL” says that Rollins said he would and he’s going to do what ever it takes to regain his spot as the MAN! Replays are shown on the big screen and each time it get’s tougher to watch as Van Dam’s skull is driven into the steel chair from the Curb Stomp from Rollins! “RVD” rolls out of the ring but he’s completely out of it as the blood begins to treacle down his forehead and the Referee rushes around the ring to check on extremist, Rob Van Dam as the crowd are still stunned by Rollins use of the Curb Stomp.

    ..CURB STOMP! SETH ROLLINS WITH THE SICKENING CURB STOMP! Screamed Jim Ross. WE’VE NOT SEEN THAT MOVE IN YEARS! Shouted Booker T as “JBL” says that Rollins said he would and he’s going to do what ever it takes to regain his spot as the MAN! Replays are shown on the big screen and each time it get’s tougher to watch as Van Dam’s skull is driven into the steel chair from the Curb Stomp from Rollins! “RVD” rolls out of the ring but he’s completely out of it as the blood begins to treacle down his forehead and the Referee rushes around the ring to check on extremist, Rob Van Dam as the crowd are still stunned by Rollins use of the Curb Stomp.

    Seth Rollins looks around and checks ringside before looking back at the ladder. Rollins replaces it right below the Championship and begins to climb. The camera pans around the arena. Van Dam is down, Apollo is down, Bray and Balor are still motionless. The coast is seemingly clear and “JBL” calls that Seth Rollins is about to return to the top of the wrestling world as the MAN! As the Smackdown Live WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! Rollins is now in position and with a smile across his face, he raises one hand and steadies the Championship before raising his second hand and attempt to release the belt. The crowd are booing but with seemingly no one else around Rollins is about to win this match when there’s a big cheer from the crowd and Neville pops up on the ring apron, grabs the ropes and springs off the top, catapulting himself on to the ladder in the ring. Neville then scales the rest and with Rollins now panic to unclasp the Championship. Neville fires with a right hand to the ribs of Seth and follows up with another one. Neville then thinks smartly and pushes the Championship sending it spinning in the air and out of reach, perhaps saving the match. Neville and Rollins then exchange punches as both are teetering at the top.

    Neville!
    Rollins!
    Neville!
    Rollins!
    Neville!
    Rollins!

    Both men eat punches and fire back with another just as quickly. Neville though blocks one, holds the ladder and spins with a kick that nails Rollins in the thigh. Neville then fires with a quick combo followed by a straight right hand and it knocks down Rollins of the ladder and back first to the canvas, crashing down hard. The crowd give a cheer as they know that Neville is so close to a defining moment and the commentary are adamant that this is Neville chance to make history and truly arrive in the WWE! Neville looks up, but the Championship is still swinging and every time he tries to grasp it, he risk’s his balance. Neville stops, he looks gutted and knows that in his attempt to stop Rollins grabbing the belt, he might have just cost himself a victory too. Neville though does not let the moment pass and seems hell bent on creating a Summerslam moment and does so emphatically! Neville climbs to the top of the ladder and raises his arms in the air, encouraging the crowd who give a cheer and gasp with expectation.

    No way! No way, don’t do this Neville! Says Jim Ross as Booker T says that Neville is about to steal the show guys. Neville looks down on Rollins who remains on his back before leaping in the air with tremendous ability and landing with the..



    RED ARROW, NEVILLE WITH THE RED ARROW OF THE TOP OF THE DAMN LADDER! Shouted Jim Ross as the crowd popped like crazy! “JBL” calls Neville crazy but he’s just delivered a Summerslam moment that will last a lifetime! Neville rolls in pain, holding his stomach and ribs as does Rollins as both men roll out of the ring and fall to the floor on the outside and as things stand- everyone in this match is done! Booker then says “wait a minute guys, Apollo is up! My boy, Apollo Crews has a free run at the Championship!” Apollo though instead comes around to ringside and grabs another ladder from underneath the ring. He then attempts to slide the ladder into the ring when he’s blindsided by Bray Wyatt who is now somehow back on his feet and moving. Bray though looks pissed and begins to beat down on Apollo before shouting at the commentary team to move.

    WOAH! WATCH OUT! Shouted “JBL” as Bray launched Apollo into the Smackdown commentary table at ringside and Apollo would come flying across the table, clearing the papers, pads and drinks on the table before slamming into the chairs and knocking them down as Booker, “JBL” and Jim Ross fled the scene. Bray would then strip away the top of the commentary table and would drag Apollo back up before landing with the Sister Abigail on the outside! Bray would then pick Crews back up and would place him on the table as the crowd began to cheer in excitement as what was to come next. Bray would then turn back and grab the ladder that Apollo had and would place in front of the Smackdown commentary table. Before Bray could make his next move, he would be blindsided by a forearm from Finn Balor to the back of the head. Balor would then beat down on the back of Bray Wyatt before slamming Bray’s head of the ladder as Wyatt bounced back. Balor would rip away the top off of the Spanish announce table and would then place Bray Wyatt on the commentary table as the crowd cheered once more.

    Finn Balor would then place his foot on the first rung of the ladder in front of the table where Wyatt is laying when the crowd would pop as “RVD” has not staggered to his feet. Blood across his face and over his singlet from the Rollins Curb Stomp. Van Dam though senses the chance to get extreme and the crowd egging him on. Van Dam walks over to Balor and seems to suggest that this ladder belongs to him and points to the second one for Finn Balor. Finn just smiles and then signals that it’s all yours to Van Dam before taking his place in front of the second where Apollo still lies on the Smackdown commentary table. Van Dam scales the first one and Balor begins to scale the second one as the crowd are now cheering loudly. Van Dam reaches the top of his first and Finn Balor then follows closely reaching the top of his ladder. Both Van Dam and Finn Balor then shoot a glance at each other before they do the unthinkable and in one camera shot the live crowd are witness to Finn Balor and Rob Van Dam causing through the air and landing with..





    COUPE DE GRACE & FIVE STAR FROG SPLASH!! Brooklyn gives one of the largest pop's of the night as Balor came down with double foot stomps to Apollo Crews through the table and Van Dam landed the Frog Splash to Bray Wyatt sending him through the other table! Both tables exploded on impact and ringside now resembles a crash site with debris scattered. More support is called from the back by the lead official at ringside as they check on the four men and try to clear the area. The commentary team grab their headsets once more and return to calling the action.

    FOR GOODNESS SAKE, IS THERE NO END TO THE RISK’S THAT THESE MEN WILL TAKE?! Shouted Jim Ross as the replay of the Coupe De’ Grace and the Five Star Frog Splash is shown. “JBL” then speaks and asks if we are back on the air and if he can be heard before saying that this match is going to shorten the careers of this men and possibly end others because “RVD”, Balor, Bray and Apollo have not moved and are receiving medical attention right now. Booker T says that this match has been of the chizzle’ and it’s not done! Jim Ross then turns the attention to ringside where Neville and Seth Rollins are stirring and have entered the ring and are attempting to stand back up after that Red Arrow. Rollins uses the turnbuckle while Neville uses the ropes but both men are up and look back at the carnage at ringside before both glance up at the Championship hanging above.

    Neville grabs the ladder and folds it back up. He then clutches it and looks to charge at Seth Rollins in the corner, but the former Authority frontman moves and Neville drives it against the turnbuckle and feel the affects of it bouncing back. Seth then grabs the head of Neville and slams it against the ladder now stacked up against the turnbuckle. Neville then falls to his knee’s and Seth Rollins steps back, lines up and charges with a kick to Neville’s face.

    Neville though dodges, leaps up onto his feet and grabs Rollins around the waist and plants him to the canvas with a German Suplex! Neville does not release the hold though and shows unbelievable strength by then rolling through and deadlifting Rollins off the canvas before delivering another German Suplex to Rollins as the crowd cheered. Neville would then stagger back to his feet exhausted but sensing he’s got the momentum in the match. Neville grabs the legs of Rollins and drags him across the ring a little before lining him up. He would then drop down and sling shot Rollins across the ring with the aim of him going face to face with the upright ladder leaning against the turnbuckle. Rollins would land on to the ladder though and would use grab it, bracing the collision and stopping himself going face to face with the steel. Rollins would then turn on the ladder and would wait for Neville to notice before leaping off with a high knee to the face of Neville, knocking him down. Rollins would then take a moment to catch his breath before dragging up Neville, kicking him in the stomach and ending any chance of him winning with the..

    PEDIGREE! Rollins with the Pedigree to Neville! Said Jim Ross as the crowd booed. “JBL” would say that Neville’s hopes of winning this match is over before asking everyone to look around, he says Rollins is the only man moving! He’s got to climb the ladder and claim the Championship! Rollins takes a moment to catch his breath, he like everyone else is exhausted and is now running on fumes feeling the full effects of the match. Seth then grabs the ladder from off the turnbuckle and lines it up in the centre of the ring. Rollins then slowly but surely starts to climb and with no one else able to stop him, rung by rung, he reaches close to the top. Rollins then stops once more, again catching his breath before looking up at the World Heavyweight Championship.

    Rollins then smiles, he’s about to do what he said he would and become World Champion when the Brooklyn crowd would pop and Rollins eyes would become big as panic would etch across his face as he knows that’s not a good sign. Rollins then looks back and it’s Finn Balor who stands up from the rumble of the commentary tables, pushes passed the medical support and enters the ring. Rollins begins to shake his head, thinking it cannot be possible. Balor stands up, albeit groggy and looks back at Rollins. Seth then turns back and scrambles to grab the Championship, but Balor then rushes up the same side of the ladder and both men begin reaching up, pushing each other’s hands away as they both literally squabble and fight for the World Heavyweight Championship.

    Jim Ross announces that we are down to two men, Rollins and Balor, who’s going to make history and become the World Heavyweight Champion?! Balor and Rollins continue their attempts to reach up and grab the Championship, each time being stopped by the other. Balor then stops an attempt from Rollins and fires with a series of punches and rocks the “Man” and has him clinging on to the ladder before blocking a strike from Finn and rakes the eyes of the “Demon King” before Rollins grabs the head of Balor and slams it into one of the steel rungs on the ladder. Balor falls of the ladder and lands on his feet, holding his face. Rollins then turns towards Finn Balor and leaps off the ladder and catches him with the..

    ..BLOCKBUSTER FROM SETH ROLLINS OFF THE LADDER! Said “JBL” as Booker T questions why Rollins didn’t just try and grab the Championship once more. Both Rollins and Balor are laid out on the canvas, their chests puffing in and out as they both take deep breaths of air, clearly exhausted. After a few moments both Finn and Seth turn towards the ladder in the centre of the ring and begin crawling towards it dragging themselves across the ring. Rollins reaches the ladders first and pulls himself up the first couple of rungs before being able to stand up. Finn Balor is closely behind him and does the same before grabbing one of Rollins boots.

    Seth attempts to carry on but is unable to move any further and kicks away at Balor, catching him in the face. Rollins then takes a few more steps but Balor is back on the defensive, grabbing the boot of Rollins and also clutching at one of his legs, able to pull him back down a couple of rungs. Balor then tries to climb up and overtake him but Rollins fires back with an elbow to the face. Rollins tries to continue the climb but is pulled back once more by Finn Balor who this time grabs a handful of hair and then slams it forward as Rollins face bounces of the steel and to crowd cheers Rollins falls backwards and is now hanging from the ladder rung in a tree of woe position as the crowd are now chanting the name of Finn Balor over and over.

    ROLLINS IS STUCK, ROLLINS IS HANGING FROM THE LADDER! THIS IS YOUR CHANCE FINN, YOUR CHANCE TO MAKE HISTORY! Screamed Jim Ross as the crowd were willing on the “Demon King” as he continues his climb and climbs over the legs of Seth Rollins and now reaches near the top. He takes a look back at Seth Rollins and there is nothing that Seth can do, he’s completely stuck and is hanging from his legs. His arms are wailing as he tries to reach up, trying to grasp anything as he can be heard shouting “Nooo!” as Balor edges closer to grasping the Championship!

    “COME ON KID, YOU CAN DO THIS!” Said Booker T as “JBL” calls this a travesty and says that Rollins is stuck, he can’t escape and is being forced to watch Balor claim the Championship. Finn Balor has now reached the top, he reaches up, has the Championship in hand and takes one last glance around the arena at the cheering fans before unclasping the Championship belt and claiming his prize as the crowd pop for the new World Heavyweight Champion! Finn Balor!

    FINN BALOR HAS DONE IT! HE’S THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, HISTORY HAS BEEN MADE HERE AT SUMMERSLAM!!
    Shouted Jim Ross with real excitement in his voice as Finn Balor clutches the Championship tightly at the top of the ladder. Seth Rollins is then freed by the Referee and he looks a broken man, exiting the ring and falling to his knees.


    JOJO: YOUR WINNER AND NEW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!! HE IS THE DEMON KING- FINNN BAAALOORRRRR!



    With the crowd cheering his name and the commentary team full of praise for the match and the performance of Finn Balor the camera zooms in on an emotional Finn Balor who sits at the top of the ladder and raises his Championship high in the air and appears to have tears running down his face as he’s clearly emotional at the victory. The celebration then goes up a notch as streamers and confetti falls from the ceiling and covers the Champion and ringside.

    “Finn Balor is the new, World Heavyweight Champion! What a superstar, what a performance and what a show! Ladies and Gentlemen, we thank you for tuning in to the hottest party of the summer- Summerslam and hope you’ve enjoyed the show as much as we have! So many good matches, so many amazing moments and we’re just getting started as the WWE enters a new era! WWE Universe it’s good night from us until the next time! Said Jim Ross as we get one final shot of Finn Balor holding the World Championship high in the air as the camera footage fades to black.

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



    Summerslam Review

    Right guys here is my review of Summerslam which looks to be one enormous extravaganza.

    Not too much to say on the pre-show match apart from it furthered two little mini stories with The Usos failing to win again and The Golden Truth continuing to break apart slowly.

    Great opener between Rusev and Ryder. Despite the early impression I really thought that Ryder could get that huge moment but Lana proves her effectiveness as she helps her husband on the way to victory and retaining his US Title. Definitely going to be intriguing to see who is next for Rusev.

    A good debut from the treacherous Aries. I prefer The Greatest Man That Ever Lived as a heel. It suits him perfectly. Hopefully this is not the last time we see these two men square off in this project.

    I like Bullet Club & The Revival so it was pretty obvious who I was rooting for although with this match being a showcase was it necessarily big enough to be on the Summerslam card. I treat Summerslam as Wrestlemania 2. Still very happy with the result and hoping for big things for both teams in the coming months.

    Highly entertained by the Heath Slater segment and it was nice to see Ricochet make his debut. I like the guy and he will be making his debut in my own work in the Cruiserweight Climax. Looking forward to seeing what happens with that tournament but also still looking to see what happens with the hottest free agent in sports entertainment.

    I thought Sasha Banks was a lock for this title match but Nikki Bella plays the smartest move of her career outside getting with John Cena to steal the title away from The Boss. The only good thing about this is it will make it all the sweeter when Sasha does take the title from her. Alicia Fox was on fire in this match too.

    Loved that Braun and Kane just fought and fought until the match was thrown out. I think Braun's progress is definitely something to look forward to as his real life rise has been nothing short of phenomenal.

    Really enjoyable pre-match ambling from The New Day. Good work. The match itself delivered too and I was never sure who was going to win. I would have preferred American Alpha because I still think they are crying out for their big moment. But tonight was The New Day's night and that Spear through the ropes was cool. I still think there is plenty to come in this feud though.

    I expected AJ Styles to prove his credentials with victory over Cena but the way the aftermath went down was the big talking point. Is Cena done? I don't think so but I do think he might take a less prominent role in the coming months. As for AJ Styles I think he will definitely be looking to get into the World Championship mix after this result.

    My favourite match of the night between Cesaro and Miz. not just for the match itself but also the epic outcome with Miz tapping out like the little girl that he is. And now Miz cannot challenge for the title again and I'm wondering just what is next for The Awesome One. Maybe he will move up the card or across brands. As for Cesaro there is plenty of fresh opponents for him to defend the title against and I would love for The Swiss Superman to hold the title through to Mania. Big Summerslam moment and Summerslam has always been a night for the Intercontinental Championship.

    So Lesnar takes care of Orton. This was never in doubt and now that The Beast is free he will surely be someone that the rest of the roster would want to steer clear of. Hoping for some fresh match-ups for Lesnar in the future but his future like many others is unpredictable to me, which is always a good thing.

    Good win for Charlotte but Natalya put up one hell of a fight. And then out comes Asuka!!! This is great.... the WWE mirroring this a mere few days after you did it. I can't wait for Asuka/Charlotte but I really think that it needs to be done at Mania rather than hotshotted onto a B PPV. But I'm definitely excited for The Queen to dance with The Empress Of Tomorrow!!!

    So Roman's gone bad. I was going to comment earlier that I thought The Usos needed to go heel to get what they desired and it looks like they have here. Reigns finally turns on the fans but I'm definitely looking forward to the reaction of Dean Ambrose once the dust settles on this. I've got one problem though and that is just that with the way this match went and the way the next one goes I think this should have went on last, mainly because it had a huge talking point and the image of Roman on The Usos' shoulders is one that would definitely be awesome to end a PPV. Minor issue but I feel there is a bigger shock factor there than what comes next.

    But still the main event delivered. You could have got the picture updates lol But I never really saw anyone but Rollins or Balor winning although with this being BTB anything is possible. The spots were brilliant and with Neville in the action there was always going to be some gravity defying fun. The finish was brilliantly scripted and I cannot wait to see Finn Balor and Seth Rollins battle over the WHC in the coming months. That is a feud that I think the WWE needed around this time but Balor's injury scuppered it.

    Overall I had barely anything negative to say about the show and it was as enjoyable as it was controversial at times. The New Era of the WWE is upon us, and I cannot wait to see what you two guys have to show us. You also need to be highly commended for making a joint BTB project work, and work well. I salute you!!!

    Keep up the awesome work... I'll be reading!!!






    Just give me the damn wooden spoon already!!!

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



    22nd August 2016 - Brookyn, New York - Barclays Center

    Before the show kicks off, we immediately head backstage to see a white limousine pulling up in the parking lot area. The fans can be heard cheering, as there's no doubt as to who this possibly could be! The limo door opens...





    And you guessed it- it's none other the CEO himself... Vince McMahon! We hear loud cheers in the background from The Barclays Center as Vince touches his suit and tie in confidence. Vince then walks through the parking lot area as he looks set to go backstage.



    A video package then plays, highlighting the events of last night's Summerslam. A voiceover then begins to speak.

    Narrator: Disrespect.

    We see many moments of Austin Aries taunting Sami Zayn before Aries defeats Zayn after an eye rake.

    Narrator: Carnage.

    The clip of Brock Lesnar pinning Randy Orton to win the match that was 15 Years in the Making is shown- as Heyman & Lesnar stood tall.

    Narrator: Disappointment.

    AJ Styles pins John Cena before Cena leaves his armband in the ring- looking very disappointed with himself.

    Narrator: Redemption.

    Cesaro makes The Miz tap out to become the new Intercontinental Champion as the fans exploded with cheers.

    Narrator: Controversy.

    Nikki Bella rolls up Sasha Banks to become the inaugural Raw Womens Champion before Sasha sits in the ring in disbelief.

    Narrator: Respect.

    The New Day defeat American Alpha before the two teams shake hands after the match.

    Narrator: Betrayal.

    We see The Usos helping Roman Reigns turn on Ambrose as Reigns becomes the new WWE Champion- to a huge negative reaction from the fans.

    Narrator: The Hottest Party of the Summer is officially over...

    And now we bring you back to...

    Monday Night Raw!





    The cameras cut to the Barclays Center as the pyros go off- and the New York fans are as hyped as ever!

    We head over to the announcers table, as we have Michael Cole, Corey Graves & Mauro Ranallo! Cole says that we are LIVE in Brooklyn, New York- welcome to Monday Night Raw! Tonight is the fall-out of last night's Summerslam, and it was one hell of a show! Ranallo talks about how we see the betrayal of the Summer as Roman Reigns shocked the world by turning on his own brother Dean Ambrose, and aligning himself with The Usos once again in the process. He hypes up how The Usos will be in action- and Reigns will be here later tonight to address the WWE Universe. Cole says that the fans all deserve an explanation after what Reigns did- and they all speculate how Ambrose feels about this, now that he's been turned on by TWO of his so called 'brothers.' We will also see Alicia Fox in action, as well as the Raw debut of Austin Aries!

    Graves continues, and he talks about how Cesaro also finally became the Intercontinental Champion by making The Miz tap out. Last night, Stephanie McMahon had announced that Mr. McMahon would be here on Raw to publicly endorse Cesaro- and we've just seen Mr. McMahon's limousine pull up to the arena- which means Stephanie was right... Mr. McMahon is indeed here tonight!! Ranallo says that he can't wait to hear Vince endorse Cesaro, and it will definitely a monumental moment for not just Cesaro, but the fans in Brooklyn tonight!



    NO CHANCE IN HELL

    And there he is! The fans in Brooklyn cheer loudly as Vince McMahon comes out to the stage. The CEO of the WWE does his trademark power walk to the ring, as the fans begin to sing along to his theme song. Vince enters the ring as he's immediately handed a mic- and he stands in the centre of the ring. His music stops, and the fans continue to cheer as Vince smiles.

    Vince McMahon: Brooklyn, New York- welcome to Monday Night Raw!

    Cheers from the crowd.

    Vince McMahon: I think we can all agree that Summerslam was a great show, right?!

    The fans cheer.

    Vince McMahon: We saw Nikki Bella defeat five other women to make history by becoming the inaugural Raw Womens Champion!

    Loud boos.

    Vince McMahon: There was some fantastic tag team action as The New Day continued their historic reign as the Raw Tag Team Champions by defeating American Alpha!

    Cheers.

    Vince McMahon: Let's not forget the Raw main event of Summerslam, as we saw Roman Reigns become a FOUR time WWE Champion by beating Dean Ambrose!

    A HUGE amount of boos from the crowd.

    Vince McMahon: And finally, we saw one match in particular that had everything. It had tension, drama, and the stakes were as high as ever... we saw Cesaro take on The Miz in a Last Chance Match with the Intercontinental Championship on the line.

    Loud cheers.

    Vince McMahon: And that brings me to the reason why I'm out here tonight. The pressure was most certainly on for both men, and one man delivered...

    I'm talking about the NEW Intercontinental Champion himself, Cesaro!

    The fans cheer loudly, before bursting into a 'Ce-Saro!' chant.

    Vince McMahon: You see, my daughter Stephanie had rung me up- and we both agreed that it was time for me to do what was necessary... which was for me to publicly endorse Cesaro!

    Vince looks very impressed.

    Vince McMahon: All Cesaro has ever wanted to do- is to prove his doubters wrong, so it's only fitting that I give him exactly what he deserves... because last night? He earned everybody's respect.

    The fans cheer loudly in response.

    Vince McMahon: Which is why I am proud to announce to the entire world...

    Vince is about to do it!

    Vince McMahon: That if Cesaro REALLY thought I was going to publicly endorse him to the WWE Universe?

    Then he clearly must be as stupid as I thought he was!!


    LOUD boos from the crowd, as the tides have changed.

    Vince McMahon: Last week on Raw, we sat Cesaro down with Michael Cole for an interview, and THIS is what he had to say!

    Vince points to the TitanTron, as a clip from last week's sit-down interview with Cesaro & Michael Cole is shown.

    CESARO: You're right Mike- this match is going to be make or break for me. You see, my biggest critic here in the WWE is not The Miz, and it has always been Vince McMahon. I respect Vince and his opinions, because without him- there wouldn't be WWE today.. but at the same time? I feel like I have been proving him wrong ever since he said I couldn't connect.

    This whole idea that I don't connect is false in my eyes, because everytime I go out there- I get a reaction.


    The footage ends, as we cut back to Vince.

    Vince McMahon: So we give Cesaro a platform to speak about his match against The Miz. A match that we promoted the HELL out of, and what does he do? He mentions MY name. He tells everybody that he feels that he has been proving ME wrong.

    Vince thinks to himself, before speaking again- as the fans chant 'ASSHOLE!' loudly.

    Vince McMahon:
    Well Cesaro, you are nothing but a compulsive liar! Because as far as I'm concerned? All you have ever done is prove... me... RIGHT!

    The crowd clearly don't agree.

    Vince McMahon: I had to listen to Cesaro spew out GARBAGE about how he wants to "head towards a legendary path." I don't know what was going through his head when he said this- but in my eyes? Cesaro still has a LONG way to go.

    Boos.

    Vince McMahon: His English skills clearly haven't improved at all! He STILL sounds like a broken record.

    The fans are not having it!

    Vince McMahon: And don't even get me started on this whole connecting business. Cesaro couldn't even connect a charger to a mobile phone without screwing it up!

    The boos just intensify.

    Vince McMahon: So if ANYBODY thinks Cesaro is ever going to make it to the top of MY company? Then they all must be sorely mistaken...

    Because Cesaro has NO CHANCE IN HELL!

    The Chairman of WWE finishes what he has to say with huge boos from the crowd. Vince simply doesn't care as he shouts 'NO CHANCE!' at the possibility of Cesaro making it to the top.

    However, the cameras on the TitanTron immediately cut to the parking lot area. Vince looks on from the ring, with a slight bit of confusion. We see an all-white BMW M6 pull up next to Vince McMahon's limousine, as the fans are all wondering who this could be? The mystery person opens the door, and exits the car... IT'S CESARO! Brooklyn ERUPTS with cheers as the Intercontinental Champion steps out of the car. He's suited and booted in all black outfit, and he's wearing black shades. He has the title wrapped around his waist, and Vince then speaks as he's not happy to see Cesaro here.

    Vince McMahon: Well look who decided to show up! If it isn't the moron himself! What the hell do you want, and why are you interrupting me?!

    Cesaro looks into the camera, as he responds.

    Cesaro: Well Mr. McMahon, it's a pleasure to see you too!

    A smirk appears on the face of The Swiss Cyborg, before he then turns serious.

    Cesaro: This is exactly what I expected. I knew that you would NEVER endorse me to the WWE Universe but I just want you to know... that I really don't care.

    Vince doesn't look delighted at all.

    Cesaro: I scratched and I clawed to become the Intercontinental Champion, and I don't even get a title celebration...

    The King of Swing continues.

    Cesaro: Instead, I have to listen to somebody that I had all the respect in the world for, just stand there and shoot me down.

    Cesaro has a disappointed look on his face.

    Cesaro: Well do you wanna know something Vince? I don't need your endorsement!

    Brooklyn cheers loudly, but Vince isn't happy.

    Vince McMahon: You better watch your tone when you talk about me! It's Mr. McMahon to you- not Vince! I am the CEO of-

    Cesaro: I don't give a damn about who you are!

    The Intercontinental Champion then takes off his shades.

    Cesaro:
    Do you wanna know what your problem is VINCE?


    The champion looks right into the camera as Mr. McMahon is getting frustrated- with Cesaro putting emphasis on the CEO's name.

    Cesaro: You don't like to see WRESTLERS make it to the top on their own, especially the ones who weren't manufactured by WWE management.

    The CEO isn't impressed at all.

    Cesaro: Look at Daniel Bryan! The YES! Movement took over this place, so the WWE did their best to drag him down- and now? He can't get medically cleared to compete in a WWE ring again.

    Vince nods in disapproval as the fans chant 'YES!'

    Cesaro: And it bugs you, doesn't it? Seeing people make it to the top without your help.

    He's on fire here!

    Cesaro: I left my family in Switzerland to wrestle in America, and ALL this time that I spent honing my craft to be the very best- I did it on my own!

    Cesaro is speaking with determination.

    Cesaro: And you say that my English is broken? Well, I might have an accent, but my English is perfectly fine.

    He's proving it here tonight.

    Cesaro: As a matter of fact... I can speak FIVE different languages- whereas the only language you know how to speak is bull****.

    The fans cheer loudly, as Vince looks on, not impressed.

    Cesaro: And you STILL say that I don't connect? Well let's take a trip down memory lane, shall we?

    Cesaro speaks with fire.

    Cesaro: Let's go back to Wrestlemania 30. When I won the FIRST ever Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal by body-slamming The Big Show over the top rope- and the New Orleans crowd exploded with cheers!

    Cheers.

    Cesaro: Or how about when I proved myself by having a series of US Championship Open Challenge Matches with John Cena- and we tore the roof apart!

    Another set of cheers.

    Cesaro: And did you hear the ovation I got when I made The Miz tap out in front of 16,000 people to become the NEW Intercontinental Champion!

    Huge pop as Vince doesn't care.

    Cesaro: But I know that it doesn't matter how many times I prove you wrong because you will never admit the truth. Well I'm here to let you know...

    That times have changed, old man!

    Brookyn responds with an Oooohhhhhhh!

    Cesaro: You've tried to come out here, and take away MY pride... so now? I'm simply going to have to take away yours!


    The fans begin to get riled up, as Cesaro takes his Intercontinental Championship off his waist. He then takes off his suit jacket. He then rolls up the sleeves of his shirt as Cole questions what The Swiss Cyborg is going to do?! However, Vince just begins to laugh in the ring.

    Vince McMahon: I don't know WHY you're rolling your sleeves up. What are you going to do? Beat me up? I'm the CEO of this company... you don't have the balls to do ANYTHING!

    Vince shouts whilst speaking his mind, whilst Cesaro looks back at the camera, and he simply stands there in silence. He thinks to himself... before walking back to his car as he doesn't do anything.

    Vince McMahon: That's exactly what I thought! You aren't capable of sticking up for yourself! You're nothing but a Swiss moron- and I KNEW I was right about you all long!

    However, as The Peak of Technique is set to enter his car- he walks to the back of his BMW instead. And he lifts up the boot. He takes something out of the boot as the CEO looks on... IT'S A BASEBALL BAT! And Brooklyn has just EXPLODED as Cesaro stares seductively at the baseball bat with a Swiss design on it. Vince continues to laugh, as he isn't taking the Swiss-born superstar seriously.

    But that is until Cesaro looks over to the other side... where we see Vince McMahon's LIMO! Cesaro is staring right at Vince's limo as Brooklyn cheers again, and Vince immediately stops laughing when he sees what's going on. Vince looks as if he has seen a ghost, and he then begins to shout on the mic.

    Vince McMahon: DON'T YOU DARE TOUCH MY LIMOUSINE! IF YOU DO ANYTHING TO MY LIMOUSINE, I WILL MAKE SURE YOU LIVE TO REGRET IT!!

    The Intercontinental Champion is not playing around here tonight, and he looks at the camera... before smiling as the fans can be heard chanting 'SMASH IT UP!' whilst Cesaro stares back at the limo. He seems a little hesitant to touch it... BEFORE CESARO BEGINS TO SMASH UP THE WINDSCREEN!! The fans cheer loudly as The Swiss Cyborg repeatedly hits the windscreen of the limo with his bat as the glass shatter into pieces.

    Vince McMahon: THAT'S ENOUGH! YOU GET OFF MY LIMOUSINE RIGHT NOW BEFORE I MAKE YOU!

    But The King of Swing just doesn't care. He then turns his attention to the windows, before HITTING one of the windows using the bat with force. He begins to smash up each window, one by one as Vince looks on from the ring- whilst the fans scream 'THIS IS AWESOME!'

    Vince McMahon:
    OKAY, OKAY! YOU'VE PROVED YOUR POINT! NOW STEP AWAY FROM MY LIMO!!!


    However, Cesaro still isn't interested. Instead, he walks over to the back of the limo, and he smashes the windows at the back as well! He then looks at camera with intense eyes...

    Cesaro: How's THAT for connecting?

    The fans cheer again as Cesaro grabs the camera from the cameraman before throwing it into the ground as the live TitanTron feed shuts off- with Vince not being able to see what's next. Vince immediately exits the ring in anger and shock- due to his limo being TRASHED! The fans then chant 'YES!' loudly as Vince immediately rushes to the back to see the state of his limo!


    The cameras head to the commentary table- as Cole says that he can't believe it! We just saw Cesaro trash Vince McMahon's limo?! One of Vince McMahon's prize possessions?!?! Ranallo says that you could see the frustration and the anger in Cesaro's eyes, and. Graves says that this was a terrible decision from Cesaro, there is no way that he gets away with this. Cole says that he agrees, it wasn't the best decision- but it was the perfect way to kick off tonight's Raw in front of this HOT crowd.


    >> COMMERCIAL <<


    We're back from our first break of the night, as the cameras immediately head back to the Parking Lot area. We see Vince McMahon, as he's clearly distraught whilst observing all the parts of his trashed limousine. But on the other hand, the GM of Raw walks into the scene... Daniel Bryan! The fans can be heard cheering in the background, as Vince looks up- and his distraught image immediately turns into anger.

    Vince McMahon: I bet you're loving all this, aren't you?!

    Daniel Bryan: Look Mr. McMahon, I heard what Cesaro had to say- and I honestly don't want to get involved in this business between you and him.

    Vince looks on, and he continues to take his anger out on Bryan.

    Vince McMahon: You don't want to get involved? Well you're the GM of Raw! You're involved whether you like it or not!

    Bryan looks back at his boss.

    Vince McMahon: And where the hell is that wretched man?! You didn't do a good job of keeping him in the arena, did you?!

    Daniel Bryan: Well, his car isn't here- so he must've left. He wasn't even scheduled for the show tonight, due to his bad shoulder.

    Vince continues to get angry.

    Vince McMahon: Bad shoulder? Bad shoulder my ass! He was well enough to trash my limousine though, wasn't he?! You BETTER sort this out.

    Daniel Bryan: Well actually, it was Stephanie who didn't book him for the show. Look, I can call and book you in for an uber ride, if you'd like?

    Vince gets in Bryan's face.

    Vince McMahon: Uber? AN UBER?! Do I look like someone that takes UBERS?! I'm Vincent Kennedy McMahon!

    Vince takes a step back.

    Vince McMahon: You get hold of Cesaro, and you do it right now! You let him know that he can pay for the damages, and that he isn't getting away with this!

    Vince walks off, still angry- whilst Bryan gets out his phone, and he immediately looks to call The Swiss Cyborg due to the chairman's orders.



    We head to the commentary table again- as Cole talks about how Mr. McMahon is on the war-path! Graves says that it's rightfully so! If you were the boss of the company, and you had an employee TRASH your limousine, wouldn't you be on the war-path too? Ranallo moves on, and he says that it's time for our first match of the night!

    GREAT AGAIN

    The fans respond with light cheers as Darren Young makes his way to the ring, without Bob Backlund. Cole talks about how Young & Bob Backlund decided to part ways, which is why Young is out here on his own tonight. Young enters the ring for our first match.

    MONSTER

    Wait, it can't be? After a few seconds...

    Spoiler:



    Out comes RHYNO!! And Brooklyn erupts with a huge pop for The War Machine! Rhyno makes his way to the ring with a serious look on his face. The match is then officially underway! Ranallo says that this is a HUGE surprise for Brooklyn! Cole agrees, and he says that Brooklyn are loving this return! He then enters the ring, as his music stops- and the fans respond with 'E-C-DUB!' chants as Rhyno looks on, soaking in all the applause.




    Match One: Rhyno vs. Darren Young

    Finish: After 6 minutes of action, this match has surprisingly been back and forth. Young has managed to get plenty of offense in, however- it just hasn't been enough to beat The War Machine. There has been a lot of 'You still got it!' chants for Rhyno.

    The match comes to an end with Young going for a Clothesline, only for Rhyno to duck it as Young misses. Rhyno then takes advantage by grabbing Young from behind, and spinning him around... and nailing a Scoop Powerslam! The fans cheer, as Rhyno lines Young up for his finishing move. The entire crowd in Brooklyn starts to anticipate Rhyno's finisher with cheers, as Young gets up- and he turns around...




    GORE!!! GORE TO DARREN YOUNG!! And Rhyno goes for the cover as Brooklyn are going nuts...


    ONE!

    TWO!

    THREE!


    Spoiler:

    Winner: Rhyno





    After the match, Rhyno celebrates his win as the fans chant 'E-C-DUB!' over and over again. Rhyno stands tall before walking to the back, as Graves talks about how Rhyno must definitely feel at home tonight in New York.

    We head back to the commentary table, as Cole talks about how that was an impressive display from Rhyno, and he hasn't lost a step. Ranallo agrees. He questions how Rhyno will fare on the Raw roster- and we could see some interesting match-ups. He then moves on, and he hypes up how it's time to see a preview of Raw's first PPV!




    A video package plays as we see buildings burning in a dark city, full of fire...

    Narrator: With the competition between both of the brands in the WWE, we usher into the new era...

    And the battles intensify so everybody must be ready...

    Because Armageddon is here!

    The theme of fire continues as Bulletproof by Young Guns plays in the background. We then see shots of many Raw superstars such as Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, Cesaro, Sasha Banks & The New Day.

    Narrator: Live on the WWE Network, for only $9.99...

    More shots of Raw superstars such as Nikki Bella, Alicia Fox, American Alpha, The Usos, Sami Zayn & Austin Aries.

    Narrator: In the Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Indianapolis, Indiana... on September 25th, Raw brings to you... ARMAGEDDON!





    The cameras cut backstage immediately as we see American Alpha in the locker room, and Brooklyn can be heard cheering. Jason Jordan & Chad Gable look very disappointed.

    Chad Gable: Look man, it didn't exactly go our way last night- but we still proved that we belong in this tag team division.

    Jason Jordan: Yeah, I know- but still. Our momentum was at an all time high! We should've walked out as Tag Team Champions.

    Gable tries to console Jordan.

    Chad Gable: Okay, we didn't walk out as champions- but at least we walked away with The New Day's respect.

    Jordan looks at Gable.

    Chad Gable: And did you hear how Brooklyn reacted to us last night? We tore the roof apart, and they loved it!

    Pop from the fans can be heard in the background.

    Chad Gable: So we can sit here and continue to feel sorry for ourselves, or we can bounce back from the set-back. Because tonight? We have a match against The Fashion Police... and we need to stay focused.

    Jordan nods in approval, before he begins to get fired up.

    Jason Jordan: You know what man? You're right! Let's go out there, and get our heads back into the game.

    Chad Gable: That's what I'm talking about! Because we're Ready... Willing... and-

    Jordan looks at Gable, and disrupts him.

    Jason Jordan: Wait, we're still doing this thing?! You're not going to make me say it, are you?

    Chad Gable: Why not? Come on man, say it!

    Jordan's hesitant, but then he sighs.

    Jason Jordan: Okay, whatever...

    Jordan smiles.

    Chad Gable: Because we're Ready, Willing...

    Both: And Gable!

    The two men laugh as American Alpha's spirits are back up- and they're ready for action!


    >> COMMERCIAL <<


    We're back from our second break of the night, as we immediately head back to the Barclays Center. The lights go out, with a blue spotlight on the TitanTron- and we hear repeated clicking.

    "Hey look, everyone! It's Tyler!"

    BREEZANGO

    And the fans respond with boos as Tyler Breeze comes out! Breeze has his selfie stick in hand, as he begins to take selfies on the stage, before his partner Fandango joins him. The two men are dressed in Police outfits, before they make their way to the ring. Cole talks about how The Fashion Police's antics really disturbed their team at Summerslam in the 12 Man Tag Team Match, but despite all that- they still managed to get the win.

    ELITE

    Brooklyn then cheers- as American Alpha come out. Jason Jordan & Chad Gable look psyched to be in Brooklyn, as Gable presents his 'Ready, Willing & Gable' rally towel on the stage. The two men make their way to the ring for some tag team action. Ranallo states that American Alpha had a great showing at Summerslam, and despite the fact that they lost- they still made a huge impact in their match against The New Day.



    Match Two: American Alpha vs. The Fashion Police

    Finish: This match has gone on for 8 minutes, and it's been very back and forth between both teams. The fans were behind American Alpha, as The Fashion Police's antics got a negative reaction from the crowd. The match has featured Breezango targeting Chad Gable, and doing everything in their will power to damage him- and keep him away from his partner.

    The finish comes when Breeze & Gable are the legal men. Breeze has Gable locked in a Single Leg Boston Crab, as Jordan has still yet to be tagged in, and Jordan screams and tries to motivate Gable. Gable is screaming in pain as he reaches out for the ropes, but Breeze attempts to pull Gable back towards the centre as Gable is doing his best to crawl to the bottom rope. Gable continues to crawl, before Breeze pulls him back again... but this time- Breeze loses his grip as Gable then rolls up Breeze for a pin!

    One!

    Two!

    BUT BREEZE KICKS OUT! And Gable attempts to wriggle back to his partner, but Breeze puts a stop to it as he grabs hold of Gable's leg yet again. Breeze then gets back up to his feet, and he then slams Gable's leg onto the canvas multiple times. Breeze then pulls him back to the middle of the ring, before lining him up for his finisher. Gable slowly gets back up, and he turns around as Breeze goes for a Beauty Shot...

    But Gable manages to duck under it... before leaping over for a HOT TAG to Jason Jordan! Ranallo said that things are about to heat up! The fans cheer, as Jordan enters the ring and Breeze runs towards Jordan- but he nails Breeze with a German Suplex! Fandango enters the ring to put a stop to Jordan's momentum- and he goes for a Clothesline but Jordan ducks before grabbing Fandango from behind... BELLY TO BACK SUPLEX from Jordan. Jordan tags in his partner and then turns back to Breeze. Gable & Jordan lift Breeze up in the air...



    GRAND AMPLITUDE FROM AMERICAN ALPHA! Gable then goes for the cover as the fans cheer!

    ONE!

    TWO

    THREE!


    Spoiler:

    Winners: American Alpha




    The fans cheer loudly as American Alpha celebrate their win- with the partners embracing and Breeze rolling out of the ring.

    Cole talks about how they've just regained some momentum, and maybe another shot at the tag team titles is in sight for them? Graves says that we should see another team enter the fold! American Alpha have already had their shot, it's time for another team to step up! Ranallo moves on, and he talks about how at Summerslam- we saw John Cena go head to head with Smackdown's very own AJ Styles. It was The Franchise vs. The Phenomenal- and here's how the match went down!

    We get footage of the Cena/Styles match from Summerslam, as we see all of the key moments that took place. We then see Styles kicking out of two pin attempts from Cena, after two AA's. We also see Cena kicking out of a pin attempt from AJ after a Styles Clash. We then see AJ finally hitting Cena with a Phenomenal Forearm, before covering Cena for the win. After the match, we see Cena acknowledging defeat- before leaving his armband in the ring, as he no longer is The Face That Runs The Place.

    Cole questions what's next for John Cena? Graves says that he doesn't know, but fair play to him for taking his defeat like a man. However, Cena isn't here tonight- and we don't know for sure when he will be coming back. Ranallo wonders if Cena could be retiring- due to him passing the torch to AJ Styles?



    The cameras then cut backstage again, as we see Daniel Bryan on the phone. He looks very frustrated as he speaks to himself.

    Daniel Bryan: Goddammit Cesaro, answer the phone!

    However, Bryan looks over to the other side- to see an interruption. The cameras zoom out... and we see The Miz with Maryse! The fans can be heard booing as Bryan looks on.

    Daniel Bryan: Have you not heard of knocking, Miz?

    The Miz: Did you see what just happened out there? The chaos that your NEW Intercontinental Champion just caused?

    Miz isn't happy, as Maryse looks on.

    Daniel Bryan: Of course I saw it. EVERYBODY saw it. So what the hell do you want?

    The Miz: What do I want? I want to let you know that it's all YOUR fault!! I blame YOU for making me lose my Intercontinental Championship. I blame YOU for the fact that I can't compete for that championship again as long as that charisma vacuum is the champion.

    Bryan isn't happy either.

    Daniel Bryan: You blame me? There's only one person to blame, and that's yourself. After all- you're the one that tapped out at Summerslam.

    Ooooohhhh can be heard from the fans, in the background.

    The Miz: Why does everybody keep on saying that?! Did you even see the ring? It was filthy! There was flies hovering around everywhere during my match- and I was simply trying to get rid of them!

    Excuses, excuses- as Maryse nods in approval.

    The Miz: But nevertheless, I'm the most must-see superstar in the WWE today! I should be main eventing PPV's & Raw's every week, and I'm not going to let ONE set-back keep me down. So what have you got for me tonight?!

    Daniel Bryan: First of all, you don't barge into MY office- and demand anything.

    Bryan then comes to a realisation- before looking back at The Miz.

    Daniel Bryan: Actually, since you really want an opportunity? I'll give you what you want. You will indeed be in the main event for tonight!

    The Miz looks happy, as does Maryse.

    The Miz: Well, that's great news! You've finally come to your senses Daniel! So... who's my opponent going to be?

    Daniel Bryan: You will take on... a mystery opponent!

    Miz & Maryse then look confused.

    The Miz: Wait, what? A mystery opponent? I want to know who it is, tell me!

    Bryan smiles.

    Daniel Bryan: You'll find out when everybody else does... so please, shut the door on your way out.

    Bryan turns back around before taking his phone out of his pocket again, as Miz & Maryse look on, before the duo walk off as our main event for tonight has been made!



    >> COMMERCIAL <<


    We head back to the commentary table, as Cole hypes up the main event for tonight- as The Miz takes on a mystery opponent! Graves wonders who it could be, as Ranallo says that it could be anyone but he's looking forward it. Cole moves on, and he talks about how at Summerslam- we got a huge announcement from Daniel Bryan that there would be a two-day tournament called Cruiserweight Classic! It will feature Cruiserweights from all over the world, and we already know who our first competitor is- The Future of Flight himself, Ricochet! Ranallo said that was a huge announcement, and it only adds more interest to the tournament. And now? We find out the second competitor of the CWC!

    A video begins to play, as we see a ring with a dark background. We see a brown skinned wrestler with slicked back hair- as he rolls through the ropes, and into the ring. He's wearing a black vest with a Pakistan logo on it... before he looks at the camera.

    ???: My name is Mustafa Ali, and I'm from Chicago, Illinois.



    Mustafa Ali: I've been competing for 13 years in different promotions all over the country- and I'm very humbled to have the opportunity to compete at such a big stage.

    A clip of Ali in a police officer outfit is shown.

    Mustafa Ali: I have experience as a local police officer in Chicago. Wrestling was always my biggest passion- but I always wanted something to fall back on just in case wrestling didn't work out for me. But at the same time, I always knew that I would make it to the big stages if I put enough hard work and effort in.

    We see a clip of Ali shadow boxing.

    Mustafa Ali: My parents were born in Karachi- so I'm originally from Pakistan. I'm also a Muslim, and I feel as if my religion is looked down upon due to a minority of individuals. I hope to use this platform to show that we should treat people with the same respect, no matter what religion or background you're from. Because at the end of the day, we're all human beings.

    Clips of Ali hitting punching bags are shown.

    Mustafa Ali: I'd say my biggest strengths are my high flying abilities. I'll be going up against wrestlers with different styles from different backgrounds. However, I know that I can hit hard- and when it comes to the ring? I'm a different breed, which is why I will do my best to become the winner of the first ever Cruiserweight Classic.

    Ali looks into the camera with a look of confidence as the video ends.



    Meanwhile, the cameras cut back to the arena as we see Blue Pants in the ring, ready for action- as she waits for her opponent.

    PARTY

    The crowd respond with a light pop as Alicia Fox comes out to the stage! Foxy makes her way to the ring as she slaps the hands of members from the crowd. Cole talks about how Alicia Fox put up a great effort at Summerslam- as she had eliminated both members of Prestige, before being eliminated by Sasha Banks. Ranallo agrees, and despite the fact that she didn't win- she proved why she is the veteran that she says she is. Foxy enters the ring, as Blue Pants looks on- and the bell rings!



    Match 3. Alicia Fox vs. Blue Pants

    Finish:
    Blue Pants has got minimal offense in, whereas Alicia Fox has dominated most of the match. The finish comes when Blue Pants is in the corner. Alicia charges at her with a Single Leg Dropkick but Blue Pants moves out of the way! Alicia hits the ropes, before Blue Pants spins her around... BIG BOOT TO ALICIA FOX! The fans cheer, as Blue Pants goes for the cover...

    ONE!

    TWO!

    THR- BUT ALICIA KICKS OUT! Blue Pants can't believe it, as Cole talks about how this is probably the most offensive we've seen Blue Pants ever been! Blue Pants waits for Alicia to get up, and she lines her up for a Roundhouse Kick as Alicia gets up- and she turns around as Graves says that could this be Blue Pants' night?... but Alicia ducks as Blue Pants kicks the air instead. Alicia takes advantage by kicking Blue Pants in the kneecap as Blue Pants then kneels down on the floor... before Alicia goes for her finisher...



    WATCH YO' FACE FROM FOXY! Alicia then goes for the cover as Blue Pants is clearly out!

    One!

    Two!

    THREE!


    Spoiler:

    Winner: Alicia Fox




    Alicia Fox celebrates after the match, as the referee raises her hand in the air.

    Cole talks about how Alicia Fox needed this win, after her loss last night at Summerslam- but Blue Pants also needed this win, but to no avail. Graves talks about how Blue Pants just keeps on losing, and he honestly doesn't see anything different for Blue Pants' future going forward- despite the fact that she put up a fight.



    The cameras cut to the back again as we see Mike Rome.

    Mike Rome: My guest at this time... Sami Zayn!

    A big pop from the crowd as the camera zooms out to reveal Sami Zayn standing next to Mike Rome.

    Mike Rome:
    Now Sami, last night- you went head to head with Austin Aries in his PPV debut match. However, you came up short after Austin Aries pinned you for the win. How did you feel about this loss?

    Sami Zayn: First of all- thank you for having me Mike. But If I have to completely honest with you? I'm not happy about the loss at all.

    Sami's face says it all.

    Sami Zayn: Before the match even begun- I offered my hand for him to shake, and instead? He responded by throwing his cloak in my face. From the moment he stepped foot into that ring, he was just full of taunts and disrespect.

    Sami gets more frustrated.

    Sami Zayn: Whenever I lose a match- I will ALWAYS get over it. I will always to my best to bounce back- but I can't get over this loss. I can't get over how he used all these cheap tactics to get the better of me.

    Mike Rome: That's completely understandable Sami- I mean, if I were in your shoes, I'd be annoyed too. What were you expecting from this match?

    Sami Zayn: I was expecting to have a fair wrestling match against Aries. I felt as if we could've stole the show, but his tactics got in the way of that. I'm not going to deny that I wanted to win, but what I definitely didn't want was a match that ended unfairly.

    Sami continues.

    Sami Zayn: I've known Austin Aries for a long time, and I know what he's like. But I thought he would've had the decency to at least fight me like a true man. Instead, he won the match by taking off the turnbuckle on the corner, and then poking me in the eye.

    Mike Rome: Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Sami Zayn: Yeah there is, Mike.

    Sami looks into the camera.

    Sami Zayn:
    Austin Aries? If you're watching this, I'm letting you know right now...

    That this isn't over.


    Mike Rome:
    Strong words right there. Thank you for your time Sami.

    Sami Zayn nods at Mike Rome before walking off as we head to another break.


    >> COMMERCIAL <<


    We head over to the announcers table- Cole talks about how last night, we crowned our first ever Raw Womens Champion in Nikki Bella! Here's footage of how things went down at Summerslam.

    We see the video footage of Nikki Bella rolling up Sasha Banks from out of nowhere- after playing possum for the majority of the match, and winning the title in the process is shown. We then see Sasha Banks looking on shocked from the ring.
    The fans can be heard booing tonight, after having to witness that shocking moment again. Ranallo says that the fans clearly are not happy, as Nikki Bella created some real controversy in the Womens division. Graves says that it doesn't matter what people think, because it was the steal of the century! And now? It's time to hear from Nikki Bella herself!



    YOU CAN LOOK (BUT YOU CAN'T TOUCH)

    Jheeze. Brooklyn immediately responds with loud boos as the music of the NEW Raw Womens Champion hits! Nikki Bella comes out, as the fans clearly aren't happy with her- following last night's events. Nikki has a smile on her face, and she makes her way to the ring. She enters the ring with a mic in her hand. The champion stands in the centre of the ring as she speaks.

    Nikki Bella: I was on the sidelines for ten months with an injury that could've ended my career- and four weeks ago? I returned to Monday Night Raw with a promise to myself that I would reclaim my spot at the top.

    And at Summerslam? I DID IT!


    Boos for the champion, as they're not having it!

    Nikki Bella: I fought to recover from my injury, and I am so happy to admit that last night? I defeated five other women to become the FIRST ever Raw Womens Champion!

    Seems like Nikki's oblivious to the boos.

    Nikki Bella: And if I have to be honest? I really, really couldn't have done it... without the support of every single person in this arena tonight.

    'YOU SUCK!' is what the fans are chanting, whilst Nikki doesn't take any notice.

    Nikki Bella: You all supported me so much- and you were behind me from the VERY beginning. You all KNEW that I deserved this, and I can't thank you all enough.

    Wow. Brooklyn is just getting even more and more pissed off.

    Nikki Bella: The fact that I am champion means that I have a huge chip on my shoulder! It means that I represent the entire Raw Women's division! And it has been so long since I have been able to do this...

    Nikki then raises the Raw Womens Championship in the air with one hand- as the fans boo.

    Nikki Bella: And as for the other women? I respect every single one of them. And I want to thank all the women on the Raw roster for giving me such a challenge.

    She's really taking the piss, isn't she?

    Nikki Bella: But there's ONE women I want to thank in particular. There's ONE women that I want to show my appreciation for, because she gave me the biggest challenge out of ALL the women.

    Sasha Banks.

    She really went there? The fans boo, before starting a 'We Want Sasha!' chant as Nikki smiles.

    Nikki Bella: I'm so happy that you all want Sasha here tonight- because I want her here as well! She is the FUTURE of this division, which is why I want to invite her out to his ring- so I can thank her face to face. So Sasha? Please come out here!

    More 'We Want Sasha' chants as the fans have clearly had enough of Nikki Bella.

    PARTY

    However, it's not Sasha Banks who comes out- instead, it's Alicia Fox coming out again! Brookyln responds with mixed reactions, with some happy that Foxy is here- and others wanting The Boss. Alicia Fox enters the ring, she asks for a mic as she speaks.

    Alicia Fox: Well, well, well. Nikki Bella, congratulations on your big win last night.

    The fans chant 'We Want Sasha! over and over again.

    Alicia Fox: Now, I know I'm not who you were expecting, but Nikki, we're not strangers at all. I remember the days when we used to team up. Back when me, you & Brie were all part of Team Bella.

    More boos from the crowd.

    Alicia Fox: You were the LONGEST reigning Divas Champion of all time. We ran the Divas division together- and three years later, you're the now first ever Raw Womens Champion. I couldn't be more happy to see you as the champion!

    More 'We Want Sasha' chants.

    Alicia Fox: However? That's not why I'm out here. Now, I know you wanted Sasha Banks out here- and I know the people want Sasha out here, but I'm here to make an announcement. Because that championship that is around your shoulder?

    I want it.

    The fans respond with mixed reactions as Nikki looks pleased to see Alicia out here. But the fans aren't pleased though, as they clearly want Sasha!

    Alicia Fox: It has been SIX years since I last won a championship here in the WWE. I have waited far too long to hold gold...

    Which is why I'm challenging you to a match for the Raw Womens Championship!

    Mixed reactions from the crowd, again as the We Want Sasha chants continue...

    SKY'S THE LIMIT

    Brooklyn wanted Sasha? They've got her! And the entire arena explodes with loud cheers, and here comes The Boss! Sasha Banks comes out to an ovation from the crowd, as she poses on the stage. She makes her way to the ring, and she calls for a mic to be given to her. She stares down Alicia Fox as Alicia doesn't look too please. Sasha then stares down the Raw Womens Champion- as the fans start a 'YES!' chant. Sasha looks at Nikki in the eye, before speaking.

    Sasha Banks: I think that you've got some explaining to do.

    A HUGE pop as Nikki looks confused.

    Sasha Banks: You claim that the five other women in that match gave you a challenge? You claim that you wanna THANK me?

    Sasha is PISSED off.

    Sasha Banks: I don't want your approval. I don't need you to thank me. I don't need ANYTHING from you because at Summerslam? You decided to take the easy way out!

    The fans cheer in agreement as Nikki & Alicia look on.

    Sasha Banks: I'M the one that truly went through four other women in that match, like the BOSS that I am. And if you fought fair? Then I would've went through you as well!

    Huge pop as Nikki continues her baffled look, whilst Alicia grins.

    Sasha Banks: But instead? You let five women fight with their blood, sweat, and tears while you HID under the ring. We all tore each other apart- and as soon as it came down to the final women?

    You entered the ring, and you picked up the pieces.

    Everybody in the arena is loving it- as Sasha speaks her mind.

    Sasha Banks: You think you deserve to be champion? Well that is FAR from the truth... because I deserve to be the champion right now!

    The fans don't disagree at all as Sasha points at Alicia.

    Sasha Banks: As for Alicia? She might not have made it to the final two, but she did A LOT more in that match than you ever did.

    Cheers as Alicia blushes.

    Sasha Banks: Hell, even EVA MARIE put up a better fight than you!

    Alicia & Nikki then both look shocked, at Sasha's words.

    Sasha Banks: You don't respect a single Women in this division apart from yourself- and you proved that at Summerslam. So let's hear it Nikki! Let's hear what you REALLY think about this situation because you're not fooling anybody.

    Another pop. Nikki then speaks, and she STILL looks baffled.

    Nikki Bella: I don't understand Sasha, why are you being like this?

    Boos from the crowd as Sasha doesn't look fooled at all.

    Nikki Bella: What is it you want? A title shot? If you want a title shot, I will happily give it to you Sasha because you're my friend.

    Sasha can't believe this, as she nods and mouths 'We aren't friends!'

    Nikki Bella: And Alicia? You're my friend as well, so I can give you a title shot too!

    Alicia can't believe this either.

    Nikki Bella: You can BOTH have a title shot! Sasha Banks vs. Alicia Fox vs. Nikki Bella for the Raw Womens Championship? The battle of the friends? I LOVE that idea.

    Nikki smiles as Alicia & Sasha both stare at each other- thinking what the hell is going through Nikki's head right now? The TitanTron feed then goes live backstage, as we see the Raw GM in Daniel Bryan to a pop from the fans!

    Daniel Bryan: Ladies, let's not get too ahead of ourselves. First of all, Nikki- despite the circumstances at Summerslam, I want to also congratulate you on becoming the inaugural Raw Womens Champion.

    Mixed reactions from the crowd.

    Daniel Bryan: And whilst the Triple Threat Match is a decent idea- I'm sorry Nikki, but you don't make the matches around here.

    Cheers from the crowd.

    Daniel Bryan: Alicia? You won your match earlier, so you have earned a bit of momentum. And Sasha? I think it's fair to say that I understand why you're not happy. You both, as well as Nikki herself, all made it to the final three of 6 Pack Challenge match at Summerslam. So here's what I'm going to do.

    Bryan continues.

    Daniel Bryan: Next week, on Monday Night Raw? It's going to be Sasha Banks vs. Alicia Fox.

    Cheers.

    Daniel Bryan: And the winner of that match will go onto Unforgiven to face Nikki Bella for the Raw Womens Championship!

    All the women in the ring look satisfied with the decision.

    Daniel Bryan: Now that's all sorted- Brooklyn, New York, enjoy the rest of the show!

    The camera cuts back to the three women in the ring. Sasha Banks & Alicia Fox both stare each other down as they are both gunning for the Raw Womens Championship- whereas Nikki just stands in the ring looking and stroking her Womens Championship.



    >> COMMERCIAL <<


    We go over to the announcers table, as Cole talks about how our first match for next week's Raw is set- as we will see Alicia Fox go one on one with Sasha Banks! He says that this will be a very big match, as the winner will become the #1 contender for the Raw Womens Champion. Ranallo says that both women deserve this opportunity, and he's not sure who will win. Graves says that it doesn't matter who wins- because they will lose to Nikki at Unforgiven. Cole moves on. He says that earlier on- we announced our second participant of the Cruiserweight Classic. And now- it's time to reveal our third participant of the CWC!

    Another video package is shown, as the clip immediately begins with a graphic of the second participant- a man who is very familiar to the wrestling world.

    ???: My name is TJ Perkins, and I'm from Los Angeles, California!



    TJP: I started training and wrestling at the age of 13. I'm originally from the Phillippines background, and I learned the Filipino culture growing up with my family. I also love to watch sports, such as football and basketball- and I support The Los Angeles Rams as well as the Los Angeles Lakers.

    Clips of TJP doing the robot-dance and dabbing in the ring are shown.

    TJP: I've wrestled in every major wrestling company in the world, apart from the WWE- which is why I'm absolutely honoured to be competing in the CWC tournament. It has of course been a very long journey to get here...

    There are graphics of TJP hitting wrestlers with aerial moves.
    TJP: I used to be homeless, and I think it had a huge effect on me- physically and mentally. It was a very dark period of my life, but at the same time, I think it made a lot stronger than I used to be. I learned a lot from that period of time, and it made me realise that wrestling was the only way out for me.

    We see TJP doing flips.

    TJP: All I want to do, is inspire people- and show them that if I can do this, then they can do it as well. If you ever have a dream, then my advice is don't just dream about it- go and live your dream. I'm delighted to be in the CWC, and I plan accomplishing my goals to become the first ever WWE Cruiserweight Champion.

    The clip ends with TJP looking towards the camera and dabbing as the clip ends.



    We head back to the ring as we see a familiar face in El Local standing in the ring, ready for action! Cole talks about how we don't know who is behind this mask. It's an interesting surprise to see El Local here, and he questions how will he fare in the ring tonight?

    AMBITION AND VISION

    The lights go out- and the crowd respond with mixed reactions for the music of Austin Aries- as Double A comes out to the stage! The lights go normal again as Aries makes his way to the ring, wearing his cape- and with a banana in hand as he enters the ring. Ranallo says that Aries made a big impact last night, despite using snarky tactics that Sami Zayn wasn't happy about. Graves says that it doesn't matter what Aries did, because he still got the win. The bell rings as both Aries & El Local are in the ring.



    Match 4. Austin Aries vs. El Local

    Finish: Surprisingly, this match featured some very back and forth action for 7 minutes. Aries dominated most of the match, but you can't deny that El Local had been very offensive. But the finish comes when El Local has Aries in position for a DDT- but Aries manages to sneak out of it, before kicking him in the mid-section- and throwing him to the corner. El Local then turns around as he's on the corner, and Aries charges towards El Local... IED TO EL LOCAL!!

    El Local goes down, as Aries takes advantage by dragging him to the centre of the ring, grabbing El Local's head...




    Before locking him in the Last Chancery! The Greatest Man That Ever Lived then intensifies the pressure as El Local screams in pain... AND EL LOCAL TAPS OUT!!

    Spoiler:

    Winner: Austin Aries




    The fans respond with cheers for Aries as he celebrates his win. The referee raises Aries' hand, before Aries tells the ref to get off, and raising both of his own hands in victory. Aries walks to the corner, and picks up his banana as JoJo enters the ring, with a mic- as she looks to interview Aries.
    JoJo: Austin Aries- congratulations on your three consecutive victories from NXT Takeover Brooklyn, Summerslam, and tonight on Raw. You've got off to a fantastic start since entering coming up from NXT, so how do you feel your experience has been on the main roster so far?

    Aries peels his banana before going to take a bite- but he pauses before putting the banana in JoJo's face.

    Austin Aries: Want a bite of my banana?

    Members of the crowd laugh as JoJo looks on.

    JoJo:
    No thank you.

    Austin Aries: Well that's your loss. And for my experience, well what do you expect? Like you said, I've gained two consecutive victories. Because that's what I do, I step into this ring- and I WIN. Unfortunately, I can't say the same thing about Sami Zayn.

    Aries takes a bite of his banana.

    JoJo: Speaking of Sami Zayn, he had some comments about you earlier. He stated that you used cheap tactics to get the win over him, and that you ruined what should've been a show stealing match. How do you feel about that?

    Austin Aries: I used cheap tactics? I ruined the match? Well JoJo, if you're going to mention false claims that came out of Sami Zayn's mouth- then you don't deserve an answer. I'm doing YOU a favour here, by interviewing ME. As a matter of fact, why don't you get the hell out of this ring, huh?

    Aries laughs as JoJo leaves, and the fans begin to boo.

    Austin Aries: Oh cry me a river!

    Boos from the crowd as Aries looks annoyed.

    Austin Aries: Sami Zayn is nothing but a sore loser! You can disagree with me if you want- but me & Sami go way back. I know him better than anybody in this arena does. I know what the deal is, Sami just can't handle the fact that he LOST at Summerslam.

    More boos as Aries continues.

    Austin Aries: The truth of the matter is, Sami Zayn is upset because he was a generico back then, and he's STILL generic now.

    The fans begin a 'OLE!' chant as Aries smiles.

    Austin Aries: Oh, look! Brooklyn has started an 'Ole!' chant... how cute is that?! Well you can chant and cheer for Sami Zayn all you want to. He might be The Underdog from The Underground.. but he will STAY in the underground as long as I'm here.

    Aries continues.

    Austin Aries: NOBODY will stop me from getting to the top. Not a punching bag like El Local, and especially not a generic asshole like Sami Zayn. Because I'm The Greatest Man That Ever Lived, and there is NOTHING that anybody can do about it.

    Aries drops his mic, and his music hits again as he raises his hands up in the air with the fans booing loudly- before continuing to eat his banana.



    Cole says that these were some very disrespectful words from Aries. Ranallo says that Aries has made a career out of being disrespectful- and not giving a damn about what people think of him. Graves states that he loves this attitude from Aries, and it's so much better than Sami Zayn's generic attitude! Cole moves on, and he talks about how at Summerslam- we had another Interpromotional match, as Brock Lesnar represented Raw to take on Smackdown's Randy Orton in a match that was 15 years in the making! Here's a video to showcase how this match went down.

    Highlights of the Lesnar/Orton match are shown, such as Lesnar hitting Orton with several suplexes. It then shows Orton being so desperate- that he went to Punt Kick Lesnar in the head to finish him, only for Lesnar to strike with an F5 before Orton kicked out of a cover. We also see Lesnar kicking out of a cover after an RKO outta nowhere. The clip then ends with Lesnar nailing a final Suplex along with a second F5 to Orton before covering him for the win.
    We head back to the announcers table, as Ranallo says that was a huge win for Lesnar- but you have to wonder, what's next for Lesnar? Is a shot at the WWE Championship on the horizon for The Beast? Cole says that Lesnar's future seems to be more clearer than Cena's, and he has yet to be pinned for 3 years now. Graves says that Lesnar continues to look as strong as ever- and there has also been a tag team in the WWE which, like Lesnar, have also looked very strong since coming to Raw.



    A video package begins to play on the TitanTron, and a voice over begins to speak whilst The Ascension's theme music from their FCW days (Let Battle Commence) begins to play in the background.

    Narrator: Dominant.

    The clip shows The Ascension making their way to the ring with the lights out in an arena.

    Narrator: Indestructible.

    We see The Ascension hitting many teams with the Fall of Man.

    Narrator: A deadly duo.

    The video shows The Ascension brutalizing the likes of Golden Truth & The Lucha Dragons as well as beating Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose in a match.

    Narrator: They have risen before.

    The Ascension are shown winning the NXT Tag Team Champions before going on a reign of terror.

    Narrator: And they will rise again.

    We see The Ascension destroying more local talent from NXT.

    Narrator: They will be in action- next week on Raw!

    The Ascension are shown posing in their trademark style as the video package ends, and we head to another break.


    >> COMMERCIAL <<


    We're back as we head to the announcers table again. Cole talks about how we got the chance to speak to someone who has been taking a leave of absence. He is none other than Curtis Axel! The last time we saw Axel, he announced that he wanted to rethink his career- and we recently got the chance to catch up with Axel, and see what was going on through his mind.



    The TitanTron goes live with a vignette as a graphic appears.

    "Is It All Over?"

    The cameras cut to Curtis Axel, sitting in his home as speaks.

    Curtis Axel: When the brand extension was announced, I was excited. Everybody in the WWE was excited, because I thought this was it. The draft would be the best way to give the undervalued superstars a chance. I thought things were finally going to go my way.

    We see clips of Heath Slater, Curtis Axel & The Vaudevillians being in the room where superstars were watching the draft- with Axel being announced as the last draft pick for Raw. Axel looked dejected, whilst Slater wished Axel luck despite not even being drafted to any brand.

    Curtis Axel: But then I was drafted last. And I know that I should be grateful that I was even drafted, whilst my friend Heath Slater wasn't... but I was still disappointed. Because I felt like nobody saw anything in me compared to all the other superstars. My confidence was simply at an all time low.

    Raw - July 25th 2016 - Curtis Axel vs. John Cena

    We see the clip of Axel being announced as Mr. Irrelevant before the match, before losing to Cena. We then see Axel going nuts at ringside by taking the steel steps and throwing it in the air, screaming 'I'M MR. IRRELEVANT, HUH?!'

    Curtis Axel: I was ready for this challenge against John Cena. I knew it was going to be a tough test. But as I was waiting for Cena to come out- I was then announced as Mr. Irrelevant. I knew I had to prove myself against Cena, but then I lost.

    And after that, my head was somewhere else. It was almost as if everybody was just laughing at me, you know? Like I wasn't good enough.

    The clip of Axel announcing to Charly Caruso that he needed to leave is shown.

    Curtis Axel:
    That match was the final straw for me. I felt like I had to leave in order to find myself. There are so many superstars that are rising in the new era- and I felt as if maybe I didn't belong on any brand. Maybe everybody was right to laugh at me.

    I've had people approach me whilst I've been shopping at the mall, I've had a million tweets on Twitter- with people all asking me the same question.

    Is it all over?

    Well, that's the question I ask myself every night. And right now? I still don't know yet.


    Axel contemplates to himself, as the video shuts off- and the words appear.

    "To be continued."



    The cameras then cut back to the ring, as we have another Tag Team match!

    GOLDEN TRUTH

    The lights in the Barclays Center immediately turn gold, as out comes Goldust to a light pop from the fans. R-Truth's music then plays, as Truth joins Goldust on the stage. The two men nod at each other in approval, before making their way to the ring for the next match. Cole talks about how there were issues between both men on the Summerslam Kick-Off show, due to Goldust being upset over Dolph Ziggler tagging in Truth, and not him. Ranallo says that it was a decision clearly made at the heat of the moment.

    DONE WITH THAT

    New music blasts on the PA sound system as the fans look slightly confused. However, all is revealed as The Usos come out- to a HUGE amount of boos from the crowd. The Usos are rocking street gear- with black gilet, joggers & snapbacks, as they make their way to the ring, laughing over each other, due to the events of Summerslam. Graves talks about how The Usos made a statement along with their cousin Roman Reigns last night- after they had helped Reigns become the new WWE Champion. Graves then says he applauds them for what they did.



    Match Five: Golden Truth vs. The Usos

    Finish:
    It's almost as if last night's events have completely changed The Usos. This match has gone on for 6 minutes- and whilst the tension between Golden Truth has been visible, the real story here is The Usos' newly found aggression as they look more hostile and calculated. Back to the action, Goldust & Jey Uso are the legal men. Jey Uso immediately goes for a punch to the face of Goldust, but Goldust ducks before going over to the other side- and tagging in Truth. Goldust then turns back around, as Jey Uso goes for a Clothesline only for Goldust to duck under it again, and grab Jey Uso's hand before placing it over his head.

    Truth then enters the ring, as Golden Truth lift Jey Uso up... SOLID GOLD!! Truth then goes for the cover as the referee counts.

    One!

    Two!

    BUT JIMMY USO COMES OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A SUPERFLY SPLASH ONTO TRUTH & HIS BROTHER!! Goldust then enters the ring to take care of Jimmy Uso who just made the save- but Jimmy nails Goldust with a Superkick as Goldust goes flying out of the ring! Jimmy Uso then helps his brother back up, as they lift R-Truth back up to his feet as Truth stumbles. And with a mean look in both of their eyes, they both charge at R-Truth...




    DOUBLE SUPERKICK TO TRUTH! The fans boo as Jimmy exits the ring- before Jey covers Truth for the pin!

    One!

    Two!

    Three!

    Spoiler:

    Winners: The Usos




    After the match, Graves points out how The Usos have won their first match in what seems like a very long time- but The Usos don't even celebrate. Instead, they immediately kick Truth out of the ring, before grabbing a mic as the two men are clearly full of anger right now. The fans begin to boo then as The Usos look very, very serious right now.

    Jey Uso: So y'all wanna boo us now, huh?! Well me and my brother got somethin' to say about that!

    Jimmy Uso: You see, last night at Summerslam? We helped our cousin take the WWE Championship back to our yard because he's FAMILY!

    Jey Uso: Tell em Uce!

    Jimmy Uso: Family ALWAYS stick together, no matter what the situation is!

    Jey Uso: That's right Uce!

    Jimmy Uso: Me and my brother? We're ALWAYS there for each other. We will ALWAYS be there for our cousin, the WWE Champ' himself Roman Reigns!

    Jey Uso: Go on Uce!

    Jimmy Uso: But where the hell were all of you?! Were y'all there for us when we kept on losing? Yo, Uce! Answer this for me, was they there for us when we were losin'?!

    Jey Uso: Hell no they weren't Uce! We were put on the Summerslam pre-show, and we were left to ROT!! When we was at the top- and when we had our facepaints on, dancin' and panderin' to every single one of y'all- you was cheerin' us then tho', weren't you?!

    Jimmy Uso: But when we was strugglin', with loss after loss, you didn't wanna cheer us at all! You didn't wanna give us that lil' bit of motivation that coulda helped us.

    Boos from the crowd.

    Jey Uso: We were kissin' babies and shakin' hands- but the fact is? WE DONE WITH THAT! We don't need y'all support no more! We DONE beggin' for your respect! Y'all just be too damn busy cheerin' other tag teams like American Alpha, and The New Day!

    Cheers can be heard for The New Day & American Alpha.

    Jimmy Uso: But you wanna know somethin'? They had their big match- and y'all even gave American Alpha a standin' ovation after they lost. But where was OUR standing ovations when we was going thru' hard times, huh?!

    Jey Uso: But by the end of the night? It ain't even matter Uce! Because WE walked out of Summerslam with the BIGGEST moment of 'em all!

    Jimmy Uso: We helped our cousin to SCREW The Lunatic Cringe out of his title- and we reunited The Bloodline! You was hatin' on us for no reason- but at Summerslam? The Bloodline GAVE you a REAL reason to hate on us! And it don't get more real than that- but we PROMISE y'all- that was only the beginnin'!

    Jey Uso: Because we started somethin' BIG last night! The Samoans have taken over Monday Night Raw! Our cousin gonna straight up conquer the singles division- but as for all the tag teams on this roster? Y'all better watch out!

    Jimmy Uso: We're talkin' about American Alpha, The Lucha Dragons, The New Day, The Fashion Police- ALL of you tag teams. Even THE ASCENSION!!

    Jey Uso: Because when y'all are sweatin' and buggin' with anxiety 'cause that fear has kicked in, and y'all can't sleep at night 'cause you're worried about what's gonna happen to y'all...

    Jimmy Uso: When you're tossin' and turnin' in your bedroom 'cause you don't want the bad guys to come after y'all... NO! It's NOT paranoia...

    The twin brothers scream on the mic.

    BOTH: IT'S THE USOS!!!

    The fans respond with boos as The Usos drop their mic- and they have clearly made a statement here tonight, as they exit the ring.

    The two men swagger to the back as Ranallo says like them or hate them, that was a powerful message from The Usos. Graves agrees, and he says that he loves this fire that we're seeing from The Usos- and this is clearly exactly what they needed. And if THIS is what we just got from The Usos, imagine what we're going to get from their cousin, the WWE Champion, Roman Reigns?!



    >> COMMERCIAL <<


    The cameras immediately cut backstage again, following the commercial break as we see Daniel Bryan in his GM office once more. He looks to have given up trying to ring Cesaro, as The Swiss Cyborg clearly isn't answering the phone. Bryan then looks over to the other side, as the cameras zoom out to reveal... Prestige! Alexa Bliss & Summer Rae are looking towards Daniel Bryan, but they don't look too pleased to see him.

    Daniel Bryan: Alexa... Summer- what can I do for the both of you?

    Alexa & Summer both look very annoyed.

    Summer Rae: What can you do for us? No Daniel, WE'RE the ones who are going to ask the questions here.

    Alexa Bliss: That's right- earlier on, you made an announcement regarding the Raw Womens Championship. You announced a match for next week, as Sasha Banks will take on the Alicia Fox with the winner taking on Nikki Bella at Unforgiven.

    Daniel Bryan: Yes, I did. And?

    Summer Rae:
    So what about us? Why aren't we included in that match? It's just typical, isn't it? I'm ALWAYS the one who is being forgotten about. If Miss Failure & Miss Old Timer are able to be in that match, then so should we!

    Alexa Bliss: And you heard what the failure said! Even Eva Marie did more than Nikki Bella in that match, and so did we. We DEMAND that you change the one on one match to a Fatal Four Way match.

    Bryan laughs as Rae rolls her eyes.

    Summer Rae: What's so funny? Are you going to give us our chance or what? We BOTH deserve better!

    Daniel Bryan:
    With all due respect, you were BOTH eliminated by Alicia Fox in the 6-Pack Elimination Challenge Match.

    Bryan continues as Prestige don't look happy.

    Alexa Bliss: And what? Why did you bring me up from NXT if you weren't going to use me? Is it just because you just wanted more numbers for the division? I'm sick of this! We're ALWAYS being treated like after-thoughts!

    Daniel Bryan: Also, let's not forget that final three in that match were Sasha Banks, Alicia Fox & Nikki Bella. Due to Alicia & Sasha being in that final three alone, they deserve a chance more than you both do.

    Alexa Bliss: Are you being serious? That's not fair! Summer, tell him! That's not-

    Daniel Bryan: Look, you BOTH had your chance at Summerslam, and you lost. If you want more opportunities to compete for the title, then you're going to have to step it up. That's all I have to say on this matter!

    The camera focuses on Prestige looking on- and they're not impressed at all with the decision not to insert them into next week's match.



    We go over to the announcers table- as Cole states that Prestige clearly feel left out in this Womens division. Graves agrees, and he questions why the likes of Alicia Fox & Sasha Banks are always featured- and yet Prestige don't even get a match tonight? Ranallo says that the GM was right- Prestige both got eliminated by Alicia Fox, so they do need to show why they deserve an opportunity. Cole moves on, and he says that it's time for the main event- as we have the A-Lister going one on one with a mystery opponent!

    The lights immediately go out in the arena as it's time for our main event.

    "QUIET ON THE SET

    CAN WE PLEASE HAVE QUIET ON THE SET?"


    Images of Hollywood begin to shuffle on the TitanTron.

    "AWEEEEEEESOOOOME!"

    I CAME TO PLAY

    Brooklyn immediately responds with boos, as The Miz comes out along with his wife, Maryse! The duo stand on the stage, as they make their way down the ramp and enter the ring. Cole talks about how The Miz had lost the Intercontinental Championship last night, therefore he wouldn't be able to challenge for the title again. Graves says that it's a travesty that The Miz can't compete for the title that he made prestigious!

    Maryse then exits the ring, as The Miz stands in the centre. He waits for his mystery opponent, as the commentators begin to speculate on who it could be? The lights then go out again, as we see mysterious eyes on the TitanTron...

    SWAMP GAS

    Spoiler:



    IT'S LUKE HARPER!
    LUKE HARPER IS BACKscreamed Cole as the New York fans go absolutely WILD for the return of The Bulldozer! Ranallo says that Harper is back, in his hometown of New York City! Harper comes out, as the lights come back on. The look on The Miz' face shows nothing but SHOCK as Harper makes his way to the ring- whilst Maryse looks worried for her husband's life.

    Cole reminds us that Harper was sidelined with a dislocated patella (kneecap) and a torn ligament in the knee! Graves questions whether Harper is still under the power of Smackdown's Bray Wyatt- as Harper then enters the ring to cheers from the crowd. Harper then begins to stare The Miz down as Ranallo says that it looks as if Miz has the heebie jeebies! The referee then calls for the bell as the main event begins!



    Main Event: Luke Harper vs. The Miz w/Maryse

    Finish: The main event for tonight has been nothing short of excellent, going on for 10 minutes so far! The fans have been fully behind the more dominant brawler in Luke Harper, as Harper has tried to do his best to inflict as much pain on Miz as possible. On the other hand, Miz has got a fair amount of offense- but he has spent most of the match trying to avoid Harper. Graves has backed Miz up for this, saying after last night's match at Summerslam- Miz should be avoiding as much punishment as possible.

    Back to the action, Harper has Miz on the corner- as Harper nails Miz with a headbutt onto his mid-section! Harper then erupt with another headbutt, and another one- before looking back at The Miz, and shouting 'WHERE'S YOUR TITLE?!' to a pop from the fans. Ranallo says that he wouldn't want to be on the other end of Harper's trash talk!

    Harper then grabs The Miz by the arm, and he attempts to pull him for an Irish Whip to the other side- but to no avail as Miz clings onto the turnbuckle- refusing to let go! Graves says that this is a smart from The Miz, as he's trying to avoid Harper's power moves. Harper attempts to pull Miz again, but The Miz has read Harper for long enough- to take advantage with a VICIOUS Clothesline to the face of Harper! Harper goes down, as Maryse begins to cheer her husband on!

    The A-Lister then grabs Harper by the throat- before looking him in the eye- and then he shouts 'TAKE A SHOWER' before slamming Harper's head repeatedly onto the canvas- as the fans chant 'Where's your title?' Miz then picks Harper back up to his feet, ready for an SKF as Cole states that Miz is looking to finish him off early- but Harper fights out of the attempted finishing move! Harper then responds with a flurry of punches to the face of The Miz, before he lifts Miz up off his feet...



    WHEELBARROW FACEBUSTER TO THE MIZ! The fans cheer due to the impact of the move, as Cole says that move could have a huge effect in this match. Harper then looks to take advantage, before he grabs The Miz' legs... and AND LOCKING MIZ IN AN INVERTED FIGURE FOUR LEG LOCK!! The fans go nuts, as Cole considers the possibility of whether The Miz will tap out TWICE in two consecutive nights?! Graves then questions why Harper didn't just go for the cover, or try and inflict more damage to Miz' face following the Facebuster? Harper has the submission move locked in, as Miz begins to scream! Ranallo says that Harper must have watched last night's Intercontinental Championship match- and Harper clearly knows that Miz is prone to giving up when it comes to submissions.

    Maryse then shouts to motivate her husband, as The Miz attempts to crawl over to the ropes. Maryse even grabs the ropes, and tries to pull it closer to The Miz' direction- but Harper tightens the hold even more! Graves reminds us that The Miz is also capable of doing this exactly Submission hold, but Harper knows to how to invert it. Harper continues to have the move locked in, and Maryse has decided that she's seen enough- before she gets up on the apron!

    The fans boo loudly, as Maryse begins to scream at the referee- shouting 'HE'S HURTING MY HUSBAND!' as the referee turns his attention to The Miz' wife. Maryse & the referee argue, as Harper then lets go off The Miz- and he gets back up to his feet, as Maryse immediately jumps off the apron. Harper then eyes the referee up in a sinister way, as he looks annoyed with the referee for focusing on Maryse and not the match itself.

    But as Harper & the referee are distracted, The Miz uses this as an opportunity to roll out of the ring to compose himself. The fans boo loudly, but Harper isn't having it. Harper looks over to the other side, as he notices The Miz- and he runs from one side to another before jumping out of the ring towards The A-Lister... SUICIDE DIVE TO THE MIZ!! Cole states that Miz did NOT see that coming! However, the referee immediately begins to count as the two men are outside of the ring.

    One! Two! Three! Four!

    Harper then gets back up to his feet before picking Miz back up, and he rolls him back into the ring before entering back into the ring. Harper then goes for the cover as he looks to put The Miz away.

    One!

    Two!

    THR- BUT MIZ KICKS OUT! Graves says that the A-Lister is still in this, as Harper looks frustrated. Harper then

    gets back up, as he takes a few steps back- before gearing up for his finishing move, as he taps his arm repeatedly. He waits for The Miz to get up to his feet, as Miz slowly does so. Miz eventually gets up, and he turns around as Harper goes for the Discus Clothesline... BUT MIZ DODGES IT AS HARPER HITS THE AIR! Harper then turns around...



    BIG BOOT FROM THE MIZ! Ranallo says that move was very effective as Harper stumbles to the corner. Miz then waits for Harper to turn around, as he lines him up for another move. Harper turns around... CORNER DROPKICK FROM THE MIZ! And Harper face first onto the canvas as The Miz goes for the cover.

    One!

    Two!

    AND HARPER KICKS OUT! Miz can't believe it- as Cole says that Miz is clearly getting more and more anxious due to him not being able to put Harper away. Maryse then shouts from outside the ring- and she screams 'SKF!' loudly as Miz nods in approval. Miz knows what he needs to do, as he lifts Harper back up to his feet. He goes for his second attempt at the Skull Crushing Finale tonight, as he looks to finish Harper off...

    But Harper wriggles out of it again! Cole says that Harper has put a stop to TWO of Miz' SKF attempts tonight. Harper then kicks Miz in the mid-section, before pushing him with force as Miz lands on the ropes. Miz then bounces off the ropes, back towards Harper...



    DISCUS CLOTHESLINE FROM HARPER!! And Brooklyn goes nuts as Harper takes advantage of the rebound, and he goes for the cover...

    ONE!

    TWO!

    THREE!


    Spoiler:

    Winner: Luke Harper




    Luke Harper's music blasts on the PA system due to his win, and he then gets back up to his feet, as he has a face of satisfaction. The referee goes to hesitantly raise Harper's hand, before Harper just stares a dagger through his eyes- and the ref backs away.
    Harper raises his own hands in the air, as Cole talks about how this was a very impressive win for Harper. However, Miz is outside the ring, as he looks shook from his loss- with Maryse trying to comfort him.

    Ranallo says that he expects big things for The Bulldozer, as the live feed heads to the TitanTron- and we see Erick Rowan watching Harper's win on the TV monitor. Rowan has a serious look on his face, before we head back to Harper celebrating. Cole question whether Rowan & Harper are still together? As we head to our final commercial.



    >> COMMERCIAL <<


    We're back from our final break of the night, as we head to the announcers table once more. Graves he talks about how last night- we saw one of the most shocking moments in Summerslam history. We saw Roman Reigns turning on his own brother Dean Ambrose, and aligning with his cousins in The Usos! Earlier on, we heard from The Usos- but now? We hear from the NEW WWE Champion!

    MOTIVATION

    There is NEW music here tonight, and the fans in Brooklyn respond with boos- as they know exactly who it is! And out comes the NEW WWE Champion in Roman Reigns, as Brooklyn immediately showcases their displeasure for The Big Dog. Reigns comes out, with a smirk on his face- and WWE Championship around his shoulder, as he's wearing an all grey suit with a flashy Rolex watch on as he makes his way to the ring. Reigns enters the ring, and he calls for the mic as his music stops.

    As Reigns goes to speak, it's not happening. The fans simply won't let him! They respond with loud boos and erupt with another 'ROMAN SUCKS!' chant as Reigns smiles. As Reigns goes to speak again, the fans interrupt him yet again- before erupting into a 'FUCK YOU ROMAN' chant, and Reigns has no choice but to speak over the fans.


    Roman Reigns: Who's laughing now?!

    Reigns chuckles as fans boo.

    Roman Reigns: You can't say that I didn't warn y'all. I promised EVERYBODY that I would become a 4 time WWE Champion.

    Reigns chuckles.

    Roman Reigns: And now? I've got the right to say that I told you so!

    Huge heat for The Big Dog.

    Roman Reigns: And everybody has been asking me questions. The first one was why? "Why did you turn on the WWE Universe, Roman?"

    Reigns continues.

    Roman Reigns: But the real question you all should be asking... is why did you turn on me?!

    The fans continue to boo.

    Roman Reigns: For the last four years, I dedicated myself to each and every single one of you. I gave you all everything! I put my neck on the line for y'all, time after time- but it STILL wasn't enough for anybody!

    The fans don't agree.

    Roman Reigns: But the moment that I won the 2015 Royal Rumble- that's when all of you stabbed ME in the back!

    More heat.

    Roman Reigns: And before Summerslam, I had been the WWE Championship three times. They were the best moments of my career, and you continued to boo me during ALL three of those moments whilst I stood there and did nothing.

    Brooklyn isn't having it at all.

    Roman Reigns: But last night? I finally did something about it. I KNEW that I was walking out of Brooklyn as the WWE Champion, no matter what... and my plan was perfectly executed.

    Reigns smiles as he's loving the attention!

    Roman Reigns: And nah, I'm not upset about what I did at all. If I have to be completely honest? I'm just upset that I didn't do it sooner!

    LOUD boos for the champ.

    Roman Reigns: I had to STICK it to Dean Ambrose, and I had to STICK it to every single one of y'all. And I really couldn't have done it without the help of my cousins, The Usos!

    Loud boos for the mention of his cousins.

    Roman Reigns: We reunited The Bloodline, and we are STRONGER than ever. You all turned on my cousins like you turned on me- but it doesn't surprise me 'cause y'all have been booing the Samoan Dynasty for generations!

    Reigns looks very passionate about his words, as the fans aren't happy.

    Roman Reigns: And as long as we all have each other? We don't need any of you people!

    'Roman Sucks' chant!

    Roman Reigns: I suck? Well that's not true at all, considering I'm the man with THIS!

    Reigns raises the WWE Championship in the air.

    Roman Reigns: At Summerslam? You were all screaming "F*** you Roman" throughout the entire match.

    'FUCK YOU ROMAN' chants.

    Roman Reigns: But by the end of the match? I was the one that said "F*** all of you."

    The crowd are livid.

    Roman Reigns: As for Dean Ambrose? Well, me and him WERE brothers... but he was never family because The Usos are my REAL blood.

    More boos.

    Roman Reigns: And I'm sure you all wanna know, why? Why did I turn on Dean Ambrose?

    A loud 'Ambrose chant' erupts.

    Roman Reigns: Well... if Ambrose REALLY wants to know why I turned on him? Then he's simply gonna have to beat the explanation out of me...

    Reigns looks into the camera.

    Roman Reigns: Because I'm not going to waste another breath on that fake ass son of a bitch.

    A deafening amount of heat for The Big Dog.

    Roman Reigns: And now? The entire world has NO CHOICE but to watch the reign of destruction that myself & The Usos are about to establish on Raw. Because we are The Bloodline...

    AND WE RUN THIS YARD!!


    Reigns speaks with fire before dropping the mic, and Reigns once again raises his WWE Championship to a huge amount of boos from Brooklyn. Graves says that Reigns couldn't care less about the boos, because he's embraced it. Cole says that this is very disappointing to see, and as Reigns looks to set to exit the ring...

    RETALIATION

    DEAN AMBROSE IS HERE!!! Screamed Ranallo as Brooklyn BURSTS into cheers for the arrival of The Lunatic!



    Ambrose comes out, with a mic in his hand as Reigns heads back to the center of the ring, and he takes off his rolex watch- before putting his belt down on the canvas. The two men stare at each other from their respective positions, as the fans die down whilst Ambrose is set to speak. The Lunatic is fuming. He has a bandage wrapped around his head, from last night's match. He goes to speak on the mic, but he pauses. Ambrose thinks to himself, before raising the mic to his mouth one more time...

    BEFORE HE DROPS THE MIC!! AND AMBROSE RUSHES TO THE RING as fans cheer, and Reigns is ready for another showdown! Ambrose enters the ring, as Reigns charges at him... AND THE TWO MEN BEGIN TO TRADE SHOTS!

    Ambrose!

    Reigns!

    Reigns!

    Ambrose!

    Reigns!

    Ambrose!


    Cole says that it's CRAZY here tonight in the Barclays Center, and Reigns goes for another shot to the face of Ambrose... BUT AMBROSE DROPS REIGNS WITH A LOU THESZ PRESS!!! And Ambrose erupts with more vicious shots to the face and the body of Reigns, as the crowd are loving it. Ambrose has the upper hand right now, and you can tell by the anger in Ambrose's eyes that he's not playing around. Ambrose continues to attack Reigns...

    UNTIL THE USOS SPRINT DOWN THE RAMP AND ENTER THE RING! The fans begin to boo again, as both members of The Usos grab hold of Ambrose, and they pull him away from Reigns! Cole says that THIS is what Roman was talking but- when he said Ambrose would have to beat the explanation out of him. It was all a ruse to attack Ambrose! But that's not going to stop Ambrose, as he immediately gets back up- and he charges at Jey Uso with shots to the temple. As Jimmy Uso looks to save his brother- he hits Ambrose with a Back Elbow which sends Ambrose to the ropes...

    But Ambrose clings onto the ropes- and he sweeps off from the apron... LUNATIC LARIAT TO JIMMY USO!! And the fans are going NUTS as Ambrose has cleared house, and he's the only man standing. Ambrose stands tall in the ring as the fans chant 'AM-BROSE!' over and over again...

    BEFORE ROMAN REIGNS NAILS AMBROSE WITH A SUPERMAN PUNCH!! And the fans begin to boo again, as Reigns begins to kick Ambrose whilst he's done. He begins to repeatedly punch Ambrose's head, where the bandage is- and he isn't looking to stop. The Usos both slowly get up, and they join in the beatdown- as the three Samoans are relentless in their pursuit to destroy Ambrose. And Reigns RIPS OFF the bandage, out of Ambrose's head- before erupting with more shots to Ambrose's head wound from last night's Summerslam!

    The three men eventually stop, and they pause- as Reigns thinks to himself. Reigns looks at The Usos, and he brings the brothers all together. He whispers something in both of their ears, and a big grin appears on the face of The Usos. The three men grab Ambrose, and they put him under the apron- before exiting the ring. They then DRAG Ambrose's body through the ramp. Ranallo says oh no... this doesn't look good for Ambrose at all.

    The Bloodline take Ambrose to the stage, as Reigns points at the three tables that are stacked on top of each other next to the stage. The Usos then grab hold of Ambrose, and they lift him up in position for a move with Reigns in the moddle. Reigns grabs hold of Ambrose's face, and he screams 'YOU'RE FINISHED!' as Reigns looks hell-bent on destroying The Lunatic once and for all. Cole says that he can't watch this, as Reigns ROARS to loud boos. Reigns grabs Ambrose's head- and the three members of The Bloodline lift Ambrose up in position to finish him off.....

    TRIPLE POWERBOMB OFF THE STAGE AND ONTO THE STACK OF TABLES!! And that's all he wrote. The effect of that move could be heard all around the Barclays Center- as members of the crowd are booing. Some are just sitting there, in pure shock as they can't believe what they've just witnessed. Graves says that Dean Ambrose has been destroyed, whilst Cole says that this is disgusting. To take Ambrose out with the same move, that Reigns & Ambrose had been using together for years whilst being in The Shield. Ranallo says that was poetic injustice!

    As the EMT's then rush to the area where Ambrose has been brutally attacked- before placing Ambrose on the stretcher as he's taken away from the arena. Reigns looks to the crowd, as do The Usos- and Reigns raises his title in the air as the fans continue to boo. Reigns screams 'THIS IS OUR YARD!' just like last night at Summerslam, as it's The Bloodline that are standing tall on the stage to close Raw as the live feed goes off the air!

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

    WWE.com Exclusive!

    Following the events that had transpired on Monday night, the Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon has put out a tweet in response to the Intercontinental Champion Cesaro vandalising Vince McMahon's limousine:

    @StephMcMahon: I would like to announce that @WWECesaro has been fined $5000 for vandalising my father's limousine. The WWE does NOT tolerate vandalism in any shape or form, and I will be on Raw next week to address the Intercontinental Champion's actions.



    We can also reveal that a tag team on Raw have mutually decided to part ways.

    Backstage Fallout

    We see Golden Truth together backstage. Both men look disappointed with each other as Goldust speaks to his partner- with the facepaint off.

    Goldust: Tonight was a chance to redeem ourselves for the all the losses we've had as a tag team since the brand extention... and we lost again.

    Truth looks Goldust in the eye.

    R-Truth: Yo Goldie, I know we lost man! Why you gotta keep mentionin' it for? Are you tryna rub it in our faces?

    Truth has a moment of thought, before back looking at Goldust.

    R-Truth: I've got an idea. Clearly, this tag team ain't workin' out. I knew Golden Truth was just too good to be true.

    The Bizzare One looks on.

    Goldust: So what are you trying to say?

    R-Truth: I'm tryna say... that maybe we should go back to being singles competitors, and call it a day with Golden Truth! Because I can't be dealin' with no more tension or arguments!

    Both men pause as Goldust looks Truth in the eye.

    Goldust: Finally, I agree with you on something. So, we're making this official? Golden Truth are going their separate ways?

    Truth puts his fist out.

    R-Truth: Word.

    Goldust & Truth fist bump as Goldust nods.

    Goldust:
    Wish you the best of luck man.

    Truth nods in approval, before walking off- as Golden Truth are officially over!

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

    Alright guys, here is a long overdue review of Summerslam. I see you’ve already posted the RAW post-Summerslam, but I’d like to read and review the big one as I’ve finally had some time to sit down and will be reading this and dropping thoughts as I go along. First off, the presentation looks awesome. Great job on the opening video package. Those things are hard to capture in just words but you hit it right on the spot. It’s the little things like this video package that make a big event like Summerslam feel special.

    We’re jumping right into the US title match. I see your writing style is jumping right into the finish, something I’m a big fan of. Sometimes we all get caught up in the small details like transition moves and rest holds which take away a bit while reading and trying to get into the match. Fine match by these two. Want to take time now to comment on the GIFs and pictures of the moves you’ve included. Great touch. I dig it a lot and it helps the flow of the match as you’re reading along. So Rusev retains, and I’m fine with that. Not too thrilled that he needed Lana to win, as Rusev is an ass kicking monster, but it makes sense from a booking standpoint to keep Ryder strong moving forward.

    Steph and Shane have a pissing match about which brand is better, I like it. Adds realism to the event showing that both of them are pulling out all stops for Summerslam. Next up we have Zayn vs. Aries, which on paper looks to be awesome. I’ve watched both of these guys countless times in person at old ROH shows, so I’m excited about this match. First big spot of the match, a somersault plancha! Great move. Love the added in cockiness of Aries as he shouts he’s the greatest man that’s ever lived before hitting a neck snap. Zayn hits the exploder Suplex but Aries won’t go down yet. I sense an Aries win from the way this match has been booked. Aries uses his heel tactics with an eye poke. Great job of booking Aries getting the win, but just like last match, Zayn was still booked strong in the loss. Nice work so far.

    Armageddon promo. There’s just something about that PPV, I always looked forward to it as a kid. Wish they’d bring it back in real life. LOVE putting Cornette with Revival, it fits so perfectly. Nice video recap and now I’m all caught up on the storyline leading into this one. Tag matches are tricky to book, but you guys have no problem with this one. Once again, I like how you recap the beginning of the match as the 4 teams feel each other out to start. Gallows gets the 3D! The action picks up from there, and The Revival hit the Shatter Machine and then Cornette and his tricky ways with the tennis racket! Awesome shit right here. Revival look great here, hopefully you have big plans in store for them in the future.

    Daniel Bryan announces the CW classic, pretty cool. Heath Slater comes out. Got a laugh out of that. Riccochet out! Love that guy. Hits his awesome finisher on Slater. Great job of putting over the CW classic on Summerslam, it gives it meaning. Nice little segment here. Next we have the Six-Pack Challenge Women’s match. Not gonna’ lie, growing up on the Women’s division from 01-06 when it was really just about the looks more than the in-ring work aside from Lita and Trish, it’s taken me a while to get into the in-ring action they have today. Nikki Bella wins, Sasha gets screwed. Now you have planted the seeds for the old vs. new rivalry, which should be good.

    Kane vs. Braun in a No DQ match- should be an awesome train wreck. Something about JR commentating on this match makes it that much better, because I can really hear him saying those lines in real life. The two beat the living shit out of each other, and then Braun lifts the table on top of Kane. Great work. Braun is booked like an absolute monster here, intrigued to see where he goes from here.

    New Day vs. American Alpha next. Sadly, AA was my favorite team for about 6 months until they booked them into oblivion in real life. I even bought their t-shirt. Fine match with all of the spots you would expect from the two teams. Cool spot from Gable leaping through the air. I swear this guy is totally mis-used and could easily be a hybrid of Angle/Daniel Bryan. So AA can’t cut it here, but the crowd loves them anyway. Again, the losers of the match are still booked strongly enough to care about in the future.

    Kane and Braun won’t stop brawling! I love it. Would love to see them brawl throughout Brooklyn. What a sight that would be! AJ vs Cena out next. Big time match with a big time feel here. It’s hard to duplicate their actual Summerslam and RR matches, but you guys have no trouble with it here. All of the big time spots you would expect. Man, AJ can really go once he gets on fire. Finally wins with the forearm. The right man won here. No complaints at all. Enjoying this PPV a lot so far. So you stick with the whole storyline teasing Cena may be done in the ring. Again, nothing wrong with leaving things the way they were in real life if it made perfect sense.

    Love the underdog Cesaro angle. I could really see Vince saying he doesn’t have what it takes. Nice touch on the longer video recap, it gives more meaning to the match. Another 2 guys who can really go in the ring. You guys really booked Cesaro to look like a star here. Sharpshooter! A different, yet unique way for Cesaro to pull out an old school submission hold to win. Cesaro finally winning the IC title might be my favorite thing on the show to this point.

    Brock and Orton. Another case of this was booked fine in real life, so not much to do in terms of buildup because these two in a match anywhere seemingly books itself. Orton gets more offense than I thought, and this match is way better than the real one. Lesnar winning is the right choice. Orton still looks very strong as he got his ass kicked and kept coming back for more.

    “In the Air Tonight” is a classic buildup song. Nice touch. Charlotte and Natalya can both go, they really have no choice based on their pedigree. Natalya throws everything she can at Charlotte but it isn’t enough. And out comes Asuka. Cool that you brought her up earlier than IRL, and I like the two holding up their titles. Great stuff.

    Reigns gets booed out of the building. The Brooklyn crowd eats him up. Ambrose gets a huge pop. The two hit all of their signature moves, and just reading this match is great. This might be your best booked match so far on the show. Great job of keeping the crowd at the center of the match by hating everything Reigns does. The Usos! Will you actually go through with a Reigns heel turn? Seems that way. I love everything about this. The booking in this is top notch. Great idea to turn Reigns heel and establish the Usos in the process. Love everything about this match.

    It’s kind of hard to transition right into the SD World title match after what we just witnessed. It’s the right call because NYC would have rioted in the streets if Reigns turning heel was the last thing on the show. Now the Ladder Match just has to top Reigns/Ambrose, which doesn’t seem to be too hard given the guys in the match.

    RVD as a surprise entrant. That crowd would have blown the roof off. Rollins looks absolutely awesome here, as does Balor. I’m picking one of these two to win it. Bray also plays his part perfectly. Neville and Apollo seem a bit out of place, but if you want to get them over moving forward, this is the match to do it. RVD gets his signature Ladder Match spots in. Great job of having Rollins hit the Curb Stomp, showing he will do whatever it takes to win. Yeah, back on Neville and Apollo, you’ve made them stars already. Awesome finish. JR calling it gives it added realism, just awesome shit. Finn wins. Love the direction of SD from here.

    Well, the Ladder Match certainly topped Ambrose/Reigns for my favorite match on the show. Great way to send everyone home happy with Balor as the future of the WWE. I haven’t given as many reviews on here as I’d like to, but this show was just purely awesome. I can definitely tell you guys put a lot of time and energy into this, making all of the little things come together. Highly detailed and perfectly formatted. Thanks for the great read, I really did enjoy reading the show. Can’t wait for the brand split to truly hit its mark in the coming months.

    Summerslam was a big effort from me & Skeng but we enjoyed it and knowing others have too- makes it all the more worth it. Thanks again!

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



    Smackdown Live Episode Six (New Era) - 23/08/16 - Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncasville, CT


    Before the show goes live a video package plays showcasing the stand out moments from the blue brands side of the hottest party of the summer- Summerslam! With “Welcome” playing in the background by Fort Minor various clips of the epic moments from Summerslam are shown with the narrator talking us through each segment of the video package.


    NARRATOR: 48 hours removed from the hottest party of the summer- Summerslam! The landscape has changed forever as we enter a new era in the WWE!


    Clips are shown of the Tag Team Showcase match with the Revival and Bullet Club members of Gallows & Anderson picking up the win over The Dudley’s and Enzo & Cass.

    NARRATOR: Rivalries have been settled!

    Clips are shown of Rusev’s win over Zack Ryder successfully defending his US Championship and more detailed montage is then shown of Charlotte also successfully defending her Women’s Championship against a valiant Natalya.

    NARRATOR: History has been made!


    The Video package now shows clips of two historic encounters that took place between Brock Lesnar and Randy Orton before switching to the AJ Styles and John Cena match. It showcases the high points of both matches- Athleticism on full display! It ends with a split screen shot of Brock Lesnar and AJ Styles victorious while John Cena and Randy Orton look down dejected.


    NARRATOR: New rivalries have begun!


    Clips are now shown of the Braun Strowman and Kane match. Nothing but chaos and carnage as Kane and Braun battle through ringside. Tables, chairs and steel steps! The scene finishes with the match being thrown out but both Kane and Braun continuing the fight backstage with Shane McMahon having to remove Braun and Kane from the building.


    NARRATOR: A CHAMPION IS BORN!


    Lastly the video clip showcases the Main Event from Summerslam starting with the return of Rob Van Dam and the various high spots within the match. Neville with the Red Arrow from the top of the ladder to Rollins. “RVD” and Finn Balor with a Five Star Frog Splash and a Coupe De’ Grace in unison from the top of the ladder to Bray Wyatt and Apollo Crews through the commentary tables at ringside. The video then closes with Finn Balor and Seth Rollins neck and neck, fighting at the top of the ladder. It showcases the crucial slip from Rollins where he would fall back and trap his legs in the tree of woe on the ladder and would be forced to watch Finn Balor unhook the Title and be crowned the new- WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!


    NARRATOR: And now… We enter the new era! Smackdown Live is next!



    Jim Ross welcomes everyone to Smackdown Live emanating from the Mohegan Sun Arena! The theme blares from the speakers and the Pyro’s shoot around the arena as the live camera floats across the souled out crown in attendance before heading over to the commentary table. Jim Ross introduces himself and his broadcast partners of “JBL” and Booker T before reminding us that we are 48 hours removed from the hottest party of the summer and what a show it was! “JBL” announces that it was a show for the ages with so many talking points and epic moments! Booker agrees and says that it was a PPv worthy of shaping the future of the WWE and the future is right here on Smackdown Live, Dawg! Jim Ross then announces that we are about to hand it over back to ringside where we are expecting the arrivals of Smackdown Commissioner and Smackdown General Manager- Shane McMahon and Eric Bischoff to kick off the show!


    I’M BACK!!


    Mixed response but mostly cheers sound for the arrival of Eric Bischoff as he steps out onto the stage with a smile across his face. Eric clearly happy with how Summerslam went down as he awaits the arrival of the Smackdown Commissioner- Shane McMahon.


    HERE COMES THE MONEY!!


    The Connecticut crowd give a large pop for the sound of “Shane O’Mac’s” theme and the noise rises again as the Commissioner comes shuffling out from behind the curtain with a bright smile across his face as he pumps his chest and mouths “thank you!” to the crowd. Shane then stops and shakes the hand of Eric Bischoff before both men walk down the ramp and head to the ring together in a united front. They receive microphones from a ringside worker before entering the ring and speaking to the live crowd in attendance.


    SHANE MCMAHON: What’s up Uncasville?! Welcome to Smackdown Live!


    The crowd pop once again as Shane McMahon smiles, fully expecting but also appreciating the reaction from the Connecticut audience in attendance.


    SHANE MCMAHON: Firstly, I want to commend everyone in the back that contributed to what was a fantastic and historic show just 48 hours ago at Summerslam! I know I speak for myself and Eric when I say how pleased and proud we are of everyone who represented the blue brand and did it well. So again, Congratulations!


    There’s another chorus of cheers from the crowd as Shane and Eric clap their hands in appreciation of the Smackdown Rosters efforts. Shane then continues speaking.

    SHANE MCMAHON: Now tonight is the start of a new era here on Smackdown Live and we are going to start it with a big announcement! Last week my General Manager, Eric Bischoff- Came up with the idea of a tag team showcase match at Summerslam to settle some feuds but also put a spotlight on the talent that we have in a potential Tag Team Division here on Smackdown! Tag Teams like the DUDLEY BOYZ! THE REVIVAL! ENZO &CASS! BULLET CLUB! HAAS & BENJAMIN- THE WORLDS GREATEST TAG TEAM and MANY MORE!


    The crowd cheer and boo the various shout outs of the teams before Shane motions for Eric to take over and continue the announcement.


    ERIC BISCHOFF: It’s time to put that potential to the test because that showcase is about to become a reality here on Smackdown! It’s with pride that me and Shane announce the evolution of Tag Team wrestling here on Smackdown and that starting from next week! There will be a Tag Team Tournament to determine the BRAND.. NEW.. SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS! Where the Semi-Finals and Final will be held and contested at the upcoming PPv- BACKLASH! Eight teams will battle it out for the right to become the first ever Smackdown Tag Team Champions and those will be the first Eight teams to head over to our Office and sign their name on the dotted line of the list that hangs above our door and have the chance to compete!


    Crowd pop for the announcement of the Tag Team Championship Tournament as the crowd follow it up with a “YES! YES! YES!” chant as Shane and Eric enjoy the reaction.


    SHANE MCMAHON: Now, speaking of Champions! It’s time to announce and welcome a man that’s going to take Smackdown Live to never seen heights! A man with so much potential and ability it’s frightening just how good this man could become! This superstar made history at Summerslam and will follow in the footsteps of legends before him! Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome the World Heavyweight Champion! He is the Demon King! FINNNN BAAALLOORRRRR!


    The crowd cheer for the name of the World Heavyweight Champion and the sound of a pulsating heartbeat sounds from the speakers around ringside. The Titantron then goes live and the Champion is shown! Dressed in a smart and expensive black suit and with the gold around his shoulder and a glistening smile across his face- Finn Balor is shown walking towards gorilla position when he stops and looks towards his right with a concerned look across his face.


    It’s the Viper! Randy Orton stands before him and there’s a brief stare exchange before Orton taps the Championship across Balor’s shoulder and says “Congratulations, Finn. I know you will do it proud” before tapping Finn on the back and walking away.


    Finn shakes his head and smiles, almost not believing he was face to face with Orton and receiving his endorsement but there’s more to come. Balor continues his walk when he stops once more, and this time just smiles before the live crowd in unison all shout “Woooooo!” as the “Nature Boy” Ric Flair steps into the camera shot and reaches for Finn’s hand and shakes it almost like a proud father congratulating a son. “Naitch” says “Hell of a job at Summerslam, kid. You’ve earned this, and I know you’re the right man to lead this brand. Good luck!” as Finn emphatically thanks Flair and bows to the legendary Hall of Famer before walking on.


    Finn Balor then reaches the gorilla position curtain when the live footage fades and the crowd wait the arrival of the Demon King!


    CATCH YOUR BREATH!!


    The beating stops and the theme blares from the PA speakers as the Mohegan Sun Arena is unhinged as the World Heavyweight Champion makes his way out from behind the curtain with the Championship gold now around his waist but still wearing that glistening smile across his face. Finn hits his pose in time with the beat as the crowd join in before making his way down the ramp, slapping hands with a few members of the crowd and then taking his place in the ring and shaking hands with both Shane McMahon and Eric Bischoff before speaking.


    FINN BALOR: Wow! I’m emotional right now so you will have to bear with me! All I can say right now is thank you! THANK YOU! Thank you, Randy Orton, and the “Nature Boy” Ric Flair! Thank you, Shane and Eric, for bringing me to Smackdown and given me the chance! Thank you to Rob Van Dam, Bray Wyatt, Neville, Apollo Crews and yes, even Seth Rollins! Thank you for bringing out the best of me in that Main Event ladder match! Lastly and certainly mostly, I want to thank the WWE Universe for the amazing support that I’ve been given since my arrival and I can honestly say that right now- to be standing here as YOUR- World Heavyweight Champion! It’s honestly a dream come true! I will follow in the footsteps of legends and I’ll make sure that I do each and everyone of them and each and everyone of you that believed in me proud!


    Finn is clearly emotional and means every word as the crowd are fully behind him and start a “You Deserve It!” chant as Finn smiles and nods his head before speaking on.


    FINN BALOR: Now, that brings me on to my plans going forward and I want to make sure that I am remembered as an exciting, defending Champion! I want to make sure that my reign as World Heavyweight Champion is with honour and prestige! And it all starts in three weeks at the first Smackdown Live solo PPv- BACKLASH!!


    THE SECOND COMING!!


    Before Finn can say anymore, the theme of one Seth Rollins sounds from the speakers and is greeted with boos from the crowd. Rollins appears in no mood to waste time and already has a microphone in hand as he stomps down the ramp and begins to speak.


    SETH ROLLINS: ENOUGH! ENOUGH! I can’t take this anymore! Look at you Balor! One win and you come out here in a flashy suit, talking to the legends and shaking the hands of the authority here on Smackdown! Who do you think you are.. SETH FREAKIN’ ROLLINS?!


    The crowd boo the mention of the authority as Finn Balor just listens and stares. Seth draws closer to the ring and enters via the steps, bypassing Shane and Eric completely.


    SETH ROLLINS: Are you trying to be me, Finn? Huh?! What about it Finn, are you trying to be the MAN?! Is that what you think you are now you got on a flashy suit and have the Championship around your waist. Huh? You think that now makes you the MAN? I’ve spent the last two nights, tossing and turning in my bed trying to sleep and trying to get the image of your climbing the ladder and grabbing my destiny in the shape of the World Heavyweight Championship while I was stuck, trapped in the ladder and forced to watch you. Tell me Finn, is that honour to you? Is that prestige to you Balor? You seen I was trapped and you took your chance! You know what honour and prestige would have been? Releasing me and beating me like a damn man!


    One former World Champion used to go around and say that to be the MAN, you’ve got to beat the Man and last night the MAN beat himself and that’s the truth Balor! You didn’t beat me Finn, you stole an opportunity and there’s a massive difference. You say you’re a defending Champion, you want to be the MAN well then how about I give you chance to prove it and you face me one on one at Backlash for the World Heavyweight Championship!!


    Finn and Balor are now face to face as the crowd are excited about the thought of these two going one on one at Backlash. Shane though would intervene and would split them up, pushing them both back but Balor would step forward with his reply.

    FINN BALOR: YOU’RE ON!! As far as I’m concerned Seth, I’m better then you’ve ever been and unlike you, I didn’t need anyone to help me and gift me my first World Championship here in the WWE! I didn’t need anyone to get me to the top- I did it on my own! I won’t allow anyone to overshadow what I achieved at Summerslam with excuses and so if you want the match at Backlash Rollins, you’ve got the match! Shane, make the match!


    SHOT’EM!!


    BULLE-BULLE-BULLET CLUB 4 LIFE!! It’s the sound of the Bullet Club and the crowd are mixed. Some happy to see the impressive and world renown group while others are against their actions and what they represent in the business. In the ring and all eyes turn to the stage where AJ Styles leads out the Club with Anderson and Gallows following on either side. The camera zooms in on AJ who is wearing a John Cena arm band around his forehead. AJ waits for the camera to get close enough before ripping it off and throwing it to the ground, spitting and then stomping over it as Gallows and Anderson follow suit and the trio make their way down the ramp.


    AJ STYLES: ENOUGH OF THIS CRAAAPPPPPP! All this talk about the World Championship match and who’s the MAN! As far as I’m concerned- I was the Main Event and I might not be considered the MAN- But I am more then that! I’M THE FACE THAT RUNS THE PLACE! And the Bullet Club run Smackdown Live! Just like we ran Summerslam because we won two out of two of our matches and it’s time to get some DAMN APPRECIATION AROUND HERE!!


    Gallows & Anderson nod and agree with AJ’s every word but the crowd are against them and begin their boos while those in the ring watch on. The Bullet Club now reach ringside and enter the ring as AJ continues to speak on.


    AJ STYLES: Finn Balor! Oh Finn, congratulations buddy, you won! You’re the World Heavyweight Champion! I bet it feels so good, right? I’ll admit Finn, you was very impressive! BUT! At Summerslam there was only one man, one match, one performance and one Phenomenal athlete that stole the show and his name is.. A! J! STYLES! The undisputed face that runs the place and I just retired John Cena! That trumps anything that either of you have ever achieved boys! I’m a man of my word and I did exactly what I said I was going to do! I did what the Bullet Club do best and that’s BEAT UP JOHN CENA!! But, I made one more promise.


    I said that regardless of who won the World Championship ladder match that I would be out here the very next Smackdown to confront them and lay down the challenge and here I am Balor! Finn, a couple of weeks ago my Bullet Club spared you Finn and unless you want to forfeit that Championship there will be no mercy this time! So Balor, how about we forget about Rollins here and we go one on one at Backlash!!


    AJ and Balor are not face to face as the crowd are cheering along and just like Rollins vs Balor they’re excited at the thought of AJ vs Balor too! Seth then gets in the middle and shoves both men as it looks like it’s about to spill over when Shane restores some order and gets in the middle and asks for some calm. He then raises his microphone and attempts to speak when Eric does so instead over him and announces the situation for Backlash.


    ERIC BISCHOFF: Seth Rollins, AJ Styles, you both make some valid and interesting points and either of you facing Finn Balor for the World Championship at Backlash would be a great match to Main Event the first ever solo PPv from Smackdown Live! But I ask you, what’s better then one of you facing Balor? How about two of you! Since Balor is determined to be a fighting champion then here’s what we are going to do! Seth and AJ, you will both be in action tonight! In our first match of the night we will see Seth Rollins vs Apollo Crews! Then in our Main Event we will see AJ Styles vs Neville! The two winners of the respective matches will then go to Backlash and will compete against Finn Balor in a triple threat match at Backlash for the World Heavyweight Championship!!


    Shane McMahon seems taken back by Eric Bischoff taking the initiative and announcing the plans for Backlash and the two matches made for tonight but he nods his head in agreement before shaking Eric’s hand. It’s smiles all around as Seth and AJ appear with the chance to earn their way to fighting Balor at Backlash and the Champion is happy to rise to the challenge as the crowd are chanting “YES! YES! YES!” clearly happy with the announcements made as the show cuts to a commercial break.


    >> COMMERCIAL <<





    CRUISE CONTROL!!


    The live camera returns from the break where the theme of Apollo Crews is heard as the man makes his way down the ramp. Apollo not quite moving as freely as normal- feeling the effects of the ladder match at Summerslam shakes hands with a few of the crowd members before entering the ring to confront Seth Rollins as the bell sounds for the first match of the evening!


    Match One: Apollo Crews vs Seth Rollins.
    Finish: The match goes 5-6 minutes and the action is solid from the get-go! The crowd are behind Apollo after his recent performances, but Rollins has used his experience to slow down the match and take his time to punish Apollo on his mistakes. Both men are clearly feeling the effects of the ladder match at Summerslam but both are driven by the reward of facing Finn Balor for the World Championship at Backlash!

    As things stand Apollo and Seth are in the centre of the ring trading strikes. Apollo would block a strike before wrapping his arms around the waist and raising up Rollins for a German suplex. Apollo would lift up Seth comfortably, but Rollins would land on his feet. Apollo would kip up as the crowd cheered but before he could react- Rollins would kick him in the gut and would lift him in a power-bomb position before running at the ropes and throwing him against the turnbuckle! Apollo’s body would explode off the turnbuckle and Rollins would strike with a side kick to the stomach of Crews as Apollo would fall to his knees.

    Rollins would then run the ropes and would look to stomp Apollo’s head into the canvas with the curb stomp, but Apollo would roll forward and out of danger. Apollo would then rush back to his feet and would drop Seth with a drop kick- knocking his opponent down. Apollo would then wait for Rollins to stand up before gripping him up in a show of strength and holding him high in the air ready for the Apollo Combination! “JR” would call that if Apollo can land this, it could be all over for Rollins and Apollo is going to Backlash! Rollins though would reach down and would rake Apollo in the eye before sliding down. Rollins would then turn a now vision impaired Crews before putting him in the stomach and positioning him in place for the..





    …PEDIGREE! SETH FREAKIN’ ROLLINS WITH THE PEDIGREE! Shouted “JBL” as Rollins would plant Apollo’s face in the canvas before going for the cover and landing the three count! One! Two! Three!

    Spoiler:

    WINNER: SETH ROLLINS!!


    The crowd are booing as Seth Rollins is announced as the winner thus heading to Backlash to compete against Finn Balor for the World Championship! Apollo looks gutted- pleading with the Referee that his eyes were raked by Rollins, but the decision has been made and it’s final. We get one final shot of Rollins making his way up the ramp smiling as the Titantron goes live!



    A vignette aired on the big screen and it would show a large compound under the dark night sky. Around it is surrounding trees, some dead, some with life. The landscape is dark and muddy with only a few lanterns dotted around to illuminate the area. A large man can be made out in the background digging up a hole as he shovels the earth to one side. The camera moves in closer and the man can be made out to be Braun Strowman. Braun notices the camera and stares directly at it with intent in his eyes. Braun slams the shovel into the mound of earth as the cameraman backs away. It then turns away from Braun and another figure emerges from the shadows, a cloud of fog around him. It’s Bray Wyatt! Bray begins to laugh before speaking.


    BRAY WYATT: Welcome, Friend. To the place me and my followers call home! You’re a long way from the city, boy. Are you not scared? Because you should be! Sister Abigail has awoken, and she speaks to me! The time is coming! The reckoning is upon us and there will be a Backlash for those that oppose us! So, I ask you, man. Are you friend or foe? Do you follow or do you..


    RUUUUNNNNN?!!


    The camera man was spooked by Wyatt who shouted as he approached. The man holding the camera though would look to escape but as he turned around, there was Braun Strowman who would stop him and cut off his escape path. Braun would then slide off his black sheep mask and would speak to the man.


    BRAUN STROWMAN: Where are you going? WE’RE NOT FINISHED WITH YOU!!


    The camera would spin around again, and Bray would be shown- this time closer to the camera as he would have a smile on his face. Bray would motion for the camera man to keep still and stay silent as he spoke once more directly to those watching.


    BRAY WYATT: Let me talk to you friend, let me tell you a story. It’s a story about Summerslam and I think you will like this one. Listen good, man. There was an eater of worlds, a dark king who arrived to slay those who opposed him. One by one, over the top rope they fell. The dark king would be victorious as those that stood to fight- would crumble and fall beneath his feet. Nothing more then bones that cracked underneath his boots as he journeyed to Brooklyn, New York.


    Upon his arrival the dark king could see the Gold in front of him! It was there, man. Shining and glistening like the sun. Oh, but it was not just any gold, man. This was the key to the universe! It was the key to the WWE Universe and this gold would unlock it all. But with every story, there is a hero.. An extremist, an ECW icon by the name of Rob Van Dam! Van Dam would stop the dark king with a move of outrageous proportions! A move cheered and adored by all. Celebrated by the masses as the dark king was stopped and sent back to from where he came..


    So, they all thought! I’m that dark king and my name is Bray Wyatt! Summerslam didn’t go to plan but it was merely a small delay to what will be mine! Time is running out for you all, the choice needs to be made. Do you stand with the eater or worlds or do you oppose him?! The Backlash is coming and those that don’t bow down will have no choice but to RUN! You know, Summerslam wasn’t all a failure. I seen a man that had long been thought to be gone!


    THE DEVIL’S FAVORITE DEMON!


    He was there! It EXCITED ME, man. Kane, it excited you too, didn’t it? I could see it in your eyes and I see that the evil still burns deep inside you! Kane, I can HELP YOU! I can bring that evil out of you and restore you as the true monster you once were and together- side by side- we can stand and burn down those that stand against us! Kane, our paths have crossed before, friend. For many a time we were foes to do battle till the end. Plans have changed though Kane. I see a different future and one where you’re the BIG RED MACHINE once more!


    You see Kane, the others have a choice. They can bow, or they can run- but you don’t man! Kane, your destiny has been decided and the Wyatt family can SAVE you! I know you’re watching, Kane. Step out from the shadows and look to the sky! FOLLOW THE BUZZARDS AND THEY WILL LEAD YOU HOME! We’ll be waiting for you Kane!


    The END, man. Now, did you like my story? BRAUN! Take him to Abigail. I think she’s going to like this one!


    Wyatt then laughs as a scream can be heard from the camera man as he drops the camera into the muddy earth below. Waytt walks past and kicks the camera, spinning it around to face Braun who can be seen dragging the man across the ground by his arms as he slides through the muddy earth kicking and screaming for help passing the dug up hole in the ground and into the compound as Wyatt slams the door behind him and the footage returns to ringside where the crowd are stunned- wondering what they’ve just seen from the Wyatt Family.





    “Did we just witness a Wyatt Family invitation from, Bray, to Kane?” Says a puzzled Jim Ross. Booker agrees that it seemed that way but questions what did Bray or “Sister Abigail” want with that poor cameraman? Jim Ross says that he can’t begin to comprehend what is going on in the sick mind of Bray Wyatt but Kane has been personally invited to the Wyatt Compound next week! “JBL” says that Kane should think about the invitation because terrible things happen to those that stand in the way of the Wyatt Family! Jim Ross then moves the show along and announces that we have some tag team action up next as the Revival take on the Shining Stars!


    A small promotional video then plays on the “Tron” and shows highlights of the Revival during their NXT run and capturing the NXT Tag Team Championships! It shows their various performances and highlights before their eventual debut on Smackdown Live. It highlights the moment Jim Cornette turned up and shocked the WWE Universe as the Dudley Boyz were attacked by Dash & Dawson from behind and laid out. The Video then ends with the Revival landing the Shatter Machine on Enzo Amore and picking up the win at Summerslam!


    Match Two: The Revival W/ Jim Cornette vs The Shining Stars (Epico & Primo)
    Finish: The match has been solid tag team action with both teams sharing momentum and putting on a good display for the crowd. The Revival though carrying all the heat as Jim Cornette would taunt the fans at ringside and would cheer on every offensive move from his team while Dash & Dawson would cheat where ever possible- holding submissions until the Referee’s 4th count after the break up and even using the Referee’s blind spots to their advantage.

    The ending would come with Dash & Dawson having cut off Epico from his partner and cousin and would stop him making a hot tag as they would both pounce on him. At the same time Jim Cornette would pull down Primo off the ring canvas by his legs and the tag would be missed. Dash & Dawson would both begin to stomp on Epico in the middle of the ring as the Referee tried to regain some order in the match. With the Referee distracted by the in-ring beating on Epico- Jim Cornette would be ready to strike! He would tee up his famous Tennis racket and with Primo attempting to stand back up.. BANG! Primo would be clocked across the back with the racket.

    Back in the ring and order was restored but the damage had already been done. Dash would be the legal man and would tag back in Dawson. Dash would then drag up Epico and would swing him into the ropes and together both men would bring an end to the match with..



    ..SHATTER MACHINE! Shouted “JBL” as Dawson would scramble back across the ring and would hook the legs of Epico for the pinfall. “JBL” would say chalk it up, it’s another win for the Revival as the Referee would begin his count. One! Two! Three!


    Spoiler:

    WINNERS: THE REVIVAL!!


    The Revival would stand tall in the ring as they would be announced as the winners of the match. The crowd would be booing as Jim Cornette would smugly taunt them and raise the arms of his team before asking for a microphone from ringside.


    JIM CORNETTE: Epico, Primo, you boys call yourselves Colon’s?! Your Uncle and Father- Carlos Colon Sr should be embarrassed that you carry his name and great traditional wrestling legacy! A legacy that was built in the good ole’ days of wrestling! Yet you boys represent him in the modern day and just like the modern day “Superstars” since we can’t say wrestlers anymore- Oh Hello, VINCE! You both absolutely SUCK! Just like these fans in Uncasville!


    The crowd are furious as they continue to boo. Epico & Primo are now making their way to the back with their heads down- almost like the words of Cornette have got to them. The Revival though are clapping and nodding along with their managers words as he continues to speak.


    JIM CORNETTE: Now, listen up and listen well. What you all witnessed at Summerslam when my boys, Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder took care of business and dealt with The Dudley Boyz and Enzo & Cass by winning their match via the Shatter Machine was just the start of a WRESTLING REVIVAL!! A REVIVAL that’s been long overdue in this business! You idiots are looking at the two best WRESTLERS! OOPS, SORRY, VINCE! On the planet today and they’re TAG TEAM SPECIALISTS of an era gone by! Summerslam was the first step on the road to a better wrestling future and Backlash is the next destination and will be a crowning moment for the Revival. I am officially announcing on behalf of my team- the Revival, that we are entering the Smackdown Live Tag Team Championship tournament and have already signed our names on the dotted line! So, let this be a warning to all those thinking about entering and competing against the BEST TEAM IN THE WOLRD TODAY! A wrestling change is coming, and they go by the name of THE REVIVAL!!


    Jim Cornette then drops the microphone before holding up the arms of both Dash & Dawson once more as the crowd continue booing. Jim Ross says that Jim Cornette and the Revival might be arrogant but there is no mistaking just how good the Revival are and with Jim Cornette at their side- they could very well go all the way and become the first Tag Team Champions here on Smackdown Live! “JBL” agrees and says that Cornette has had success with everyone he’s ever guided or managed, and we are talking big names like the Midnight Express! Rock N’ Roll Express! Vader! Barry Windham! Even Yokozuna and Owen Hart! Booker agrees and says that Cornette’s “CV” is very impressive, but his actions are questionable and that’s going to be their downfall.





    Jim Ross then reminds us of the announcement made by Raw GM- Daniel Bryan at Summerslam as the clip is shown on the big screen. Jim Ross says that the Cruiserweight Classic is coming to the WWE Network and it will feature a worldwide two-day tournament with some of the best pound for pound Cruiserweights in the world competing to become the inaugural “CWC” tournament winner and the first ever WWE Cruiserweight Champion of the new era! Jim Ross then reminds us that the “Future of Flight” Ricochet was the first entrant and he’s been recently joined by TJ Perkins and Mustafa Ali as they were announced on this past Raw, Monday night. “JR” then confirms it’s now time to see who will join them as the Titantron goes live and begins to air a vignette!


    ???: You all know who I am.. I’m THE Brian Kendrick and I’m back!



    BRIAN KENDRICK: Unlike the others- I’m not honoured to be back in the WWE. It’s where I belong and where I should have stayed. You want me to tell my story?


    Footage shows Kendrick from his early days in the WWE. May 1, 2003 episode of SmackDown and then as “Spanky” Kendrick is shown interrupting a John Cena promo and the highlights of his first major feud with Cena.


    BRIAN KEDRICK: Be it Spanky or be it Brian Kendrick. I know who I am, I know what I am, and I belong at the top. Unlike everyone else who perfected their abilities on their trampolines I was trained by one- Shawn Michaels and people call him the greatest of all time. So, what does that make me? Unlike the others, I’ve had a taste of success in the WWE and I want it again!


    Footage now shows Brian Kendrick teaming with good friend and partner- Paul London. May 21, 2006 Judgement Day Kendrick and London are shown defeating “MNM” and becoming WWE Tag Team Champions.


    BRIAN KENDRICK: Unlike the others, I’m not here to impress or entertain. I’m not here to show people that I can put on a good display. That I’m a good hand. No! I’ll do whatever it takes and if it means I’ve got to do it the ugly way, so be it. I’ve never been afraid to get my hands dirty or bend the rules and I’ll do it again!


    The footage now shows Kendrick from 2008 on an Episode of Raw as he leaves his partner- Paul London high and dry to lose a handicap match against Umaga. It also shows Kendrick teaming with Ezekiel Jackson and the change of attitude is obvious. Kendrick is much more aggressive. The clip finishes with Kendrick receiving his release on July 30, 2009.

    BRIAN KENDRICK: Unlike the others, I’M THE MAN WITH A PLAN! It’s been a long, long road for me to get back where I belong and now that I am back. I’m never going away again and will become the first ever Cruiserweight Classic winner and Cruiserweight Champion! So, get ready! The Wizard of Odd is coming and there is no place like home!


    The vignette then finishes as we head to a commercial break.


    >> COMMERCIAL BREAK <<





    The camera returns from the commercial break and the footage is backstage as Kevin Owens is shown walking down the hallway. Kevin is clearly animated and can be heard shouting out for his partner and best friend.


    KEVIN OWENS: Chris?! Chris, where are you?! I’ve got something to tell you! Chris?!


    Owens continues to look annoyed with no response and takes it out on a catering table as he passed by- flipping it over as a member of staff asks him what he’s doing? Owens responds in snappy fashion and the man is taken back by the response.


    KEVIN OWENS: WHO THE HELL ARE YOU? DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM, BUSTER? I’M KEVIN OWENS- I’LL DO WHAT I LIKE!


    The man quickly apologizes and nods his head to Owens before attempting to leave. Owens then continues his search for Jericho and after a few more attempts of calling his name.


    CHRIS JERICHO: Kevin! I’m in here!


    Owen’s shakes his head and opens the door to one of the locker rooms and enters the room. The camera switches to one in the room and Jericho is shown watching a TV screen and appearing to fast forward last week’s Smackdown Live episode.


    KEVIN OWENS: Chris! I’ve got something I want to tel- What are you doing?!


    CHRIS JERICHO: Kevin- I didn’t want to tell you but I’m watching last week’s episode of Smackdown Live. I want to watch back the Battle Royal.


    KEVIN OWENS: What?! Why?! Chris- We haven’t the time to mess around.


    CHRIS JERICHO: I know, Kev. I know. Look- I didn’t want to tell you in case you got upset but all week them STUPID IDIOTS that they call the WWE Universe have been tweeting me and messaging me on social media that it wasn’t Bray that eliminated me- but YOU! I know it’s not possible it could be true, and I know they’re wrong but I wanted to watch it and record it off my phone and tweet all those that doubt the friendship of the best friends- Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho that they’re wrong!


    Owen’s just looks at Jericho with a face that is desperately trying to look innocent as he replies.


    KEVIN OWENS: What? That’s so.. Like, Absurd Chris. They’re trying to get in your head Chris and it’s working- turn it off, come on. I want to talk with you.


    CHRIS JERICHO: AHHHHH! Here we go. So here’s the moment before I’m eliminated. Here’s Bray and then you’re coming over and..


    Kevin Owens then panics and pauses the TV after grabbing the remote. Jericho looks at Owens with a face that reads what’s wrong.


    KEVIN OWENS: You don’t want to watch this again, Chris. I MEAN LOOK AT THE PICTURE!! How old is this TV? It’s not even HD ready, I bet. You know what- let me turn this off- We don’t need to watch you getting eliminated- it was embarrassing.


    Jericho looks completely puzzled and just looks at Owen’s who is now even more animated.


    KEVIN OWENS: IS THIS WHAT IT’S COME TO, CHRIS?! Watching back clips of last week’s show where we both LOST?! Chris, we lost last week. We didn’t even get a match or segment on the Summerslam card and we’re not in the Title picture for Backlash either! I can’t do this anymore, Chris. I’ve had enough! Things need to change!


    CHRIS JERICHO: Are you okay? You sound stressed, Kevin.


    Jericho attempts to rub his partners shoulders, but Kevin pushes his arms away and steps to the side looking at Chris Jericho with annoyance.


    CHRIS JERICHO: I agree with you! The GOAT and his best friend- Kevin Owens do deserve better and we are going to have better starting tonight. That’s why I went to Shane McMahons office during the break and that little list hanging on his door- well I took my pen, click, click and I SIGNED US UP MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNN!


    KEVIN OWENS: WHAT?!


    CHRIS JERICHO: Think about it, Kev. Y2KO as the first ever Smackdown Live Tag Team Champions! We can make history!


    KEVIN OWENS: And that’s why I love you, man. That’s why we are best friends, Chris. This will be the start of Y2KO and whether Shane, Eric, the fans like it or not- We will go to Backlash and become the Tag Team Champions!


    CHRIS JERICHO: I knew you would like it, man. Good. Well we need to get ready because we’ve got a match like, now- against Enzo and Cass! Come on, let’s go!


    Jericho leads the way as Owens facepalms himself and doesn’t seem overly happy with having no time to prepare for the match as the live camera fades to the commentary table at ringside. “Y2KO entering the Tag Team Tournament- I think it’s a great idea” says “JBL” while Jim Ross questions if that’s really want Kevin Owen’s wants? “JR” indicates that Kevin seemed pretty unhappy about something when he wanted to speak with Jericho. “JBL” says that Jim Ross is just stirring as he calls it a conspiracy theory. John says that Kevin Owens and Jericho are best friends and are a united front. Booker chimes in and says that we are about to find out as they face Enzo & Cass who are looking to bounce back from their Summerslam loss to the Revival and Bullet Club.


    Match Three: Y2KO (Owens & Jericho) vs Enzo Amore & Big Cass
    Finish: The match went 5-6 minutes of action. Jericho & Owens showed their class and took advantage of Enzo & Cass perhaps with a hangover from taking the pinfall loss at Summerslam. Owens and Jericho would also take aim at the bigger man in Cass. Cass was still strapped up from the attack via the Bullet Club a couple of weeks ago and it was a green light for the team of “Y2KO” as they zoned in on the injured area. Often, they would segregate and cut off Cass from his corner as Enzo attempted a few times to get into the match with no luck. Owens would be the legal man with Cass and would swing him into the corner before following up with a clothesline. Owens would then step back a few steps before running at Cass and smashing him with a cannonball- crushing him against the turnbuckle. Owens would then drag him out to the middle of the canvas and would tag in Y2J- Chris Jericho! Jericho would enter and would immediately run the ropes and would roll back the years with a vintage Lionsault before attempting a cover as the Referee dropped down!

    One! Two! Kick out! Cass would kick out before the three as he through up his shoulder at the last second. Jericho would then stand up and would stand over Cass as he slapped him across the head and shouting “Get up Junior, come on! Get up!” continuing the slaps and mockery. Cass would then have enough and would block a slap before reaching up and nailing Jericho with a punch to the jaw that would rock him. Cass would then take a step back before nailing Jericho with a big boot to the face and would knock Jericho down and out! The race was then on as both Jericho and Cass would begin to crawl across the ring with the aim of tagging in their partners. Owens though would see Cass struggling and moving a lot slower then Jericho and would run around the ring and would look to attack Enzo and pull him off the ring apron. Enzo though would see it coming and would leap off the canvas and would leap onto Owens with a crossbody and would take him down.

    Back in the ring though and both the legal men were up. Jericho would be watching and resting against the rope as Big Cass was groggy and leaning against his corner- desperate for Enzo to get back in position and receive the tag from his partner. It wouldn’t come quick enough though and Cass would go it alone! As he turned though he would walk right into a..



    ..CODEBREAKER! JERICHO WITH THE CODEBREAKER! Yelled Booker T as he said that’s got to be lights out for Big Cass! “JBL” says that his teammate and friend- Enzo- left him high and dry! “JR” then asks John who’s making up conspiracy theories now but the damage is done! Cass is out, and Jericho makes the cover! One! Two! Three!


    Spoiler:

    WINNERS: Y2KO!!


    The crowd are booing as Owens re-enters the ring and hugs his friend Chris Jericho as he orders the Referee to raise their hands in victory. For their opponents though- Enzo sits on the outside of the ring with his head in his hands as Cass begins to come around. The camera then exits ringside and it goes backstage once more- this time to the office of Commissioner- Shane McMahon!


    Shane is shown on a call and appears all smiles as he can be heard talking about the upcoming Backlash PPv. He mentions that he’s excited for the blue brand says that the new era has arrived on Smackdown Live! Shane then appears to clock someone entering the room out of the corner of his eye and turns to face them. He tells the caller that something has come up and he will call them back before hanging up the phone and turning towards the intruding Baron Corbin!


    BARON CORBIN: Where’s my chance to compete against Balor at Backlash, Shane? Huh? Where was my chance to compete at Summerslam in the ladder match for the World Championship, Shane? Well? Are you really going to tell me the way I handled Mark Henry and beat him like a dog needing to be put out of his misery wasn’t impressive?


    Shane sighs and wipes his brow before replying.


    SHANE MCMAHON: You know, Baron. You seem to be barging into my office a lot recently. In fact- You’ve been in my office far more then you been in the ring and then you want me to be impressed? You did as you say, beat up Mark Henry but you did so with a steel chair, Baron. Again- not impressive!


    BARON CORBIN: Oh, is that so, Shane. Well you tell me- How am I meant to impress you when I don’t have a match tonight? Huh? You want me to cause a scene backstage and knock down anyone in my way? Would that impress you, Shane?


    SHANE MCMAHON: No, Baron. That wouldn’t impress me. In fact- I’m getting sick of this. I’ll tell you what though Corbin. Normally I hate you barging in here and shooting your mouth off and whining about your time here on Smackdown but tonight- You’ve done me a favour because you’re looking for a match and I need to find an opponent. Congratulations! You’ve got yourself a match after the commercial break so how about you go out there and impress me. Good luck!


    Shane smiles as Baron looks on- wondering who his opponent could be. Baron goes to ask something else but Shane motions for him to leave the office and eventually he does as we go to commercial.


    >> COMMERCIAL <<





    The live footage returns from the commercial break and we are ringside where Baron Corbin’s theme can be heard among the booing crowd as the “Lone Wolf” prepares and stretches in the ring as he awaits his mystery opponent.


    SLOW CHEMICAL!!


    The pyro explodes on the stage and the look on Baron’s face is a picture as the realization as just kicked in that Baron’s opponent is none other than the Devils Favourite Demon- Kane! The crowd are cheering as Kane makes his way down the ramp, readjusting his black glove before reaching ringside. Back in the ring and Baron is protesting that he does not want to fight Kane, but the Referee says the match is made. Kane then reaches up and pulls himself up and steps over the top rope before hitting his pyro in the middle of the ring! BOOM! The pyro explodes around the ring and ringside as Baron ducks down as the crowd cheered loudly. Kane then stood in the middle of the ring and just stared as Corbin would gee himself up, shaking his fist and almost talking himself into this fight before squaring up and going face to face with Kane.


    Match Four: Kane vs Baron Corbin.
    Finish: The ring bell sounded, and the two giants of men stood face to face, neither back down. Baron would then begin to trash talk Kane and would raise his fist to the mask of Kane and would continue to mouth off. Kane though didn’t flinch- instead he took his right arm and nailed Corbin with a flush uppercut that rocked the big man and knocked him back. Kane then threw his hand across the throat of Corbin and teased an early chokeslam, but Corbin would attack the knee of Kane with boots before beating him down with forearms across the back! Corbin would then run the ropes and would launch into Kane with a big boot that would knock down the Big Red Machine and Corbin would be taunting and celebrating as the crowd booed. Suddenly the crowd would cheer and Baron’s face was again a picture as the Devils Favourite Demon would sit up and stare directly at Corbin before standing back up and nailing him with a combo of punches before then running the ropes and returning the favour with a flush boot to the jaw of Corbin knocking him down and sending him rolling out of the ring as the crowd cheered along.

    The match would continue for another 4-5 minutes with both men landing some hard-hitting strikes and big moves but the ending would come with Baron having knocked down Kane and then stalking him as he attempted to stand up. Kicking him in the face and pushing him back down with his boot as he toyed with Kane and continued to trash talk. Baron would then look to set up the End of Days and would swing Kane into the ropes and would catch him as he sprung back off the ropes. Baron would get in one rotation, but Kane would land back on his feet as he was able to grip his hand around the throat of Baron and would squeeze the life out of him. Kane would then pick him up and would drive him to hell with a chokeslam down to the canvas! The Big Red Machine was not done there though and would signal the end by taunting him with the cut throat gesture before dragging him up and bringing him back down to the canvas with the..





    ..TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER! KANE WITH THE TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER! Shouted Jim Ross as Baron Corbin was motionless in the middle of the ring. Kane would then fold his arms across Corbin’s chest and would make the cover! One! Two! Three!


    Spoiler:

    WINNER: KANE!!


    The Referee tries to grab and raise the arm of Kane in victory, but the Big Red Machine has no interest and just stares at the Referee as he backs away. Kane then signals for a microphone from ringside and has a reply for Bray Wyatt.


    KANE: Bray Wyatt! I heard what you had to say and for the most part I agree with you. I feel a fire burning inside me that I had long fought had gone. A fire that drives me on and gives me an appetite for destruction and an uncontrollable urge to bring pain and suffering to those that stand in the way of the Devils Favourite Demon! Only this time- I’m in control of my actions and I know those that need to be brought to justice and those that need to burn in the depths of hell!


    The crowd are cheering as Kane speaks with his breath heavy but each word acting as a warning to Bray Wyatt as a sense of the REAL Kane is back in the WWE.


    KANE: Bray Wyatt! Braun Strowman! My brother- The Undertaker no longer walks these paths as the grim reaper of the reckoning, but I do! And the time has come for the Wyatt Family to be stopped and to feel the flame of eternal death! At Summerslam- Me and Braun tore the house down and left the Barclays Centre as nothing more then warzone! We could have fought at Summerslam to the end of time and neither of us were planning to stop! The excites me, Braun. As far as I’m concerned with got unfinished business as there can only be one true monster of the WWE!


    Next week. I accept your invite but make no mistake, Bray Wyatt. I’m coming to do what needs to be done and I will bring fire and brimstone with me to smite down the Wyatt Family and leave the Wyatt Compound as nothing more then a memory among the ashes and rubble.


    Kane drops the microphone and stares down the camera as he readjusts his glove and exits the ring by elegantly leaning over the ropes and falling to his feet. Jim Ross then confirms that looks like Kane is going to the Wyatt Compound next week and has vowed to burn it down! “JBL” chimes in and says that Kane will be very foolish to go and bring the fight to the Wyatt Family on their turf and should consider joining them and becoming the monster he can be!



    The camera then switches from ringside and to the “Tron” where a promotional video for the upcoming Smackdown Live exclusive PPv Backlash is shown!


    NARRATOR: "When the hottest party of the summer comes to an end, when the winners are victorious, the losers are defeated...


    It can only mean one thing..
    ...Prepare, the BACKLASH is coming!"


    "Our Time" then plays by Alien Ant Farm in the background as shots of various Smackdown superstars are shown. The Bullet Club, Charlotte Flair, Natalya, The Revival, The Dudley Boyz, Finn Balor, The Wyatt Family, Kane & many more.


    NARRATOR: "The WWE Universe is divided. The war for ratings has begun. For Smackdown Live, the time is now! It's OUR TIME RIGHT NOW!"


    "Live from Richmond Coliseum, Richmond, Virginia. Smackdown Live presents.. BACKLASH!"



    “Get ready for the Backlash!” Says Jim Ross as he reminds us that Backlash is live in three weeks’ time from the Richmond Coliseum! Jim Ross then says speaking of Backlash, we are expecting to hear from the self-proclaimed Queen and WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion- Charlotte Flair after her epic match at Summerslam with Natalya! Let’s take you back!


    We get still picture footage of the epic encounter from Charlotte and Nattie from their Championship match at Summerslam. It shows Nattie having Charlotte in the sharpshooter and Charlotte tapping out as Dana Brooke would distract the Referee. The next picture would show Charlotte completely stunned as Nattie would kick out of Natural Selection! The next picture frame would then be Charlotte finally winning the match after the second Natural Selection and standing tall with her arms raised in victory! Finally, the highlights would end with the shocking appearance by NXT Women’s Champion- Asuka! It would show Asuka and Charlotte standing tall in the middle of the ring- face to face- both raising their Championships in the air.


    RECOGNITION!!


    The heat is instant, and the crowd are hot as Charlotte Flair strolls out in a flashy robe and a crown on her head as she wears her Championship around her waist proudly and smugly. Charlotte strolls down the ramp, completely oblivious to the crowd’s reactions as she mouths for them to bow down in her presence. Charlotte then approaches the steel steps and begins to walk up them, entering the ring and receiving a microphone from Jojo at ringside.


    CHARLOTTE FLAIR: Connecticut, Uncasville! Your QUEEN AND WOMEN’S CHAMPION IS HERE!!



    The arrogance on Charlotte’s face is incomparable but the crowd remain hot as they continue booing.


    CHARLOTTE FLAIR: Okay! Settle down! Your QUEEN wants to speak to HER people! I know you’re all expecting me to come out here and gloat but being the CHAMPION that I am. I have come to show my respect to a worthy challenger that pushed me to my limits! Natalya brought her A game and gave me the hardest match of my career, the toughest challenge of my life! Nattie, you brought out the best in me and the QUEEN thanks you!



    The crowd are more mixed in their response to the words of Charlotte. Cheering Natties name while other continue to boo Charlotte.


    CHARLOTTE FLAIR:
    I’m just sorry that Natalya had to learn the hard way that a FLAIR will always better than a HART and that there is no WOMEN on planet earth that can compete and compare to ME! The QUEEN and Smackdown WOMEN’S CHAMPION! CHARLOTTE FLAIR!



    Charlotte smiles arrogantly having quickly switched her stance and respect for Nattie and the crowd are hotter than ever with louder and more aggressive booing.


    CHARLOTTE FLAIR: Natalya will always be second place at best! But you know what- she should be happy with that because despite Natalya never being the WOMEN at the top of the WWE! She’s a good worker, a water carrier and those are always needed to back up the STARS!



    Summerslam I was the star of the show! The light was shining down on me! However, Nattie was not the only women trying to salvage and make a career off my name. Trying to steal my spotlight. There was another women who entered my QUEENDOM and her name is..



    ASUKA!!


    The crowd pop crazy for the name of Asuka as Charlotte rolls her eyes and continues to speak.


    CHARLOTTE FLAIR: Oh Asuka, I bet you enjoyed that little stunt you pulled. You stole my headlines waving around your little NXT Championship. Tell me Asuka, was I meant to be impressed by you successfully defending your NXT Championship at TakeOver? Tell me Asuka, was I meant to be intimidated by an NXT ROOKIE strolling down here in a cheap robe?



    Make no mistake Asuka- I know all about you! I know that you have beating everyone that has stood in front of you and that you have never LOST Asuka! Do you want to know why you’ve never tasted defeat Asuka? It’s simple! It’s because you’ve never stood in the ring with the QUEEN and the Smackdown Women’s Champion! So Asuka, when you decide that you’ve had enough in the rookie league down in Orlando and you want to come into my division- the big leagues! There will be one women who’s waiting for you and SHE WILL BE READY FOR ASUKA! Because if you want to be the WOMEN, you’ve got to beat the WOMEN! WOOHOOOOOOOO!


    The crowd chant Asuka’s name as Charlotte just stares and continues to roll her eyes before speaking once again.


    CHARLOTTE FLAIR: Enough about Natalya! Enough about Asuka! Tonight, is about ME! It’s always about ME and looking towards the future! The future starts at Backlash and I welcome a new challenge and want any women who deems herself worthy to step out and challenge me!



    NEW FOUNDATION!!


    The crowd give a large cheer as the theme of Natalya blares from the speakers and she would appear on the stage as the crowd chant and cheer her name. Charlotte’s face is a picture as she looks surprised to see Nattie. However, it’s not all good news for the fans as Nattie is out on the stage but she’s on crutches. The commentary team mentions the leg injury suffered at Summerslam and what this could mean for Nattie going forward. Nattie though has a microphone in hand and is ready to retort to Charlotte.

    NATALYA: You know Charlotte, for a moment I thought you was going to be humble and was going to embrace the classic match that we had at Summerslam. I thought for a moment you were going to enjoy and share the spotlight that we put on our Women’s Division and the spotlight we helped place on Women’s Wrestling all around the world. However, I was wrong and off course you make everything about you, Charlotte! I’m humble enough to admit that you are an amazing athlete and performer! I’m humble enough to say that you’re the toughest opponent that I’ve ever faced and competed against in that ring! But, I’m not stupid enough to believe that you didn’t use every trick in the book to keep your Championship and even resorted once again to using your little lap dog- Dana Brooke! She distracted the Referee as you laid crying out in pain and tapping out to the Sharpshooter in the middle of the ring!


    Charlotte, I should be standing here tonight as the proud and NEW Women’s Champion of Smackdown but I’m not. Normally, that would make me worthy of a rematch but sadly for my fans in attendance and around the world- that’s not going to happen! I’m Injured and will not be cleared to medically return until I’m healed and fully rested up. So after tonight, I’ll be flying home to Canada and taking my leave but make no mistake. When I return better and strong than before, I’m coming for you Charlotte!!


    The emotion is etched across the face of Nattie as she drops the microphone and appears to wipe away the tears. Back in the ring though and Charlotte is mockingly applauding Nattie and pretends to cry as Nattie just shakes head in embarrassment.


    Suddenly there’s loud boos from the crowd as Dana Brooke runs out from behind the curtain and slams into Nattie with a forearm strike to the back of the head. Nattie instantly drops the floor hard as Dana then lays into the Hart family with kicks and stomps. Charlotte then exits the ring and begins to walk up the ramp with a smile on her face. The crowd are furious and so is “JR” and Booker T on commentary as they say that Dana and Charlotte have no class and are attacking a woman who’s not medically cleared to compete! It goes from bad to worse though as Dana Brooke grabs Nattie’s crutch and delivers it to Charlotte Flair. Charlotte then smiles before taking aim and doing the unthinkable as bashes Nattie’s injured leg! SMASH! The crutch wraps around and splits across the injured leg of Nattie as she screams out in agony!


    Jim Ross screams that we need some medical help out here and that Charlotte and Dana Brooke have gone too damn far tonight! Charlotte and Brooke flee the scene as medical help and some Referee’s arrive from the back to help Nattie as the show goes to a commercial break.


    >> COMMERCIAL <<




    The show returns from another commercial break and we are backstage. Shane McMahons office door is shown where the list of signed up teams are shown for the upcoming Smackdown Live Tag Team Championship Tournament. Noise is then heard in the background of various people speaking and as the camera zooms out as various teams are shown. VaudeVillians, The Dudley Boyz and the Worlds Greatest Tag Team of Haas & Benjamin are there too. All three teams are in discussion about the tournament and outlining their plans to victory.


    BUBBA RAY: DO YOU KNOW WHO WE ARE?! WE’RE THE DUDLEY BOYZ! Don’t ya’ll got the Twitter machine? Don’t ya’ll got the Network? Winning tag team gold is what we do!



    DVON: OH, MY BROTHER- TESSTTIIFFYYYYYYY!

    AIDEN ENGLISH: We all know who you are, Bubba. But this is a new era- not the Attitude era! It’s time for a change! It’s time for some gentleman of a bygone era to lead us into future not a throwback of two knuckle dragging cavemen!


    SIMON GOTCH: What my friend the Artiste is saying is, we conduct business in the right manner but those that stand in our way will need to be ready for dukes up and serious fisticuffs!


    SHELTON BENJAMIN: What language are you even speaking, dude?


    CHARLIE HAAS: Look, we can respect the Dudley Boyz! But you two, what have you ever achieved? Here's the thing boys! Forget social media, forget the network, forget this “we’re the best speeches” because when It comes to me and Shelton. Well, the clue is in our name!



    SHELTON BENJAMIN: WORLDS GREATEST TAG TEAM! Ya’ heat that? We’re back and we gon’ be the first ever Smackdown Live Tag Team Champions!



    Suddenly laughter can be heard coming from behind all three teams as they all turn around at the same time. The camera then pans around and reveals Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows! The Bullet Club!


    KARL ANDERSON: Well, look what we got here good brother Luke! Looks like we have ourselves some A class, ermmm, what’s the word broski?



    LUKE GALLOWS: NNNNEEERRDDDSSSSSSS!


    KARL ANDERSON: That’s right, NERDS! This discussion is real cute but when it comes to Smackdown there’s one team running every division, and this gone be no different. If you aren’t Bullet Club then you’re second best and just like we did in Japan. We are going to clean up here too and come Backlash- You’re looking at the next Tag Team Champions!



    Both members of the Club then push past the teams of Vaudevillians and Benjamin & Haas before signing their names on the list and confirming their participation. Both Anderson & Gallows then turn to leave when the Dudley Boyz stand in there way.


    BUBBA RAY:
    Oh. Don’t think we forgot about you two! Summerslam you punks got lucky and lightening don’t strike twice in Dudleyville! It won’t be now, it might not be next week, it might not even be at Backlash but make no mistake. We got two tables with your names on!



    The Club and the Dudleys then stare for a moment as the remaining teams just watch on before Anderson & Gallows smile and brush past Dvon & Bubba Ray. The Live footage then switches to another area backstage where Renee Young is standing by!

    RENEE YOUNG: WWE Universe, I’m stood by awaiting some breaking news on the latest medical update of Natalya. As we already know, Nattie was not cleared to wrestle tonight and was advised to go home rest up and heal. After the attack from Dana Brooke and Women’s Champion- Charlotte Flair Natalya has been getting checked over by WWE Doctors and…


    With Renee Young standing by the medical office the door opens and Shane McMahon steps out looking highly sprung and annoyed.

    RENEE YOUNG: Shane! Shane! Sorry- can you tell us the latest update on Natalya?


    Shane takes a moment to compose himself before nodding his head and replying.


    SHANE MCMAHON: I can Renee. It’s not good news and Natalya’s leg injury has been aggravated worse by the uncalled for and down right cowardly attack from Dana Brooke and Charlotte Flair! Truth be told- I didn’t want Natalya out there but after hearing what Charlotte said- I couldn’t stop her and I respect Natalya for her response and for wanting to inform her fans personally. As for Charlotte and Dana Brooke?



    Shane McMahon takes a breath before looking away and then replying- almost like was trying to make sure he was happy with what he was about to say.


    SHANE MCMAHON:
    I’m ASHAMED of them. I’m EMBARRASED Renee. Natalya was effectively a helpless woman out there and they acted like Hyena’s. I condemn the actions of both Charlotte and Dana Brooke and there will be consequences! Make no mistake that considering what happened at Summerslam and what happened tonight. Once Natalya is cleared to return she will have a rematch against Charlotte Flair and should she still be Women’s Champion then it will be for the Women’s Championship! Now, with Backlash only three weeks away! It’s time to find a new challenger to face Charlotte and there are two women that have stood out to me and Eric and have impressed us over the recent weeks and they are. Naomi and Becky Lynch!



    The crowd in attendance cheer the names of both women as Shane continues on.

    SHANE MCMAHON: Next week we will see Naomi vs Becky Lynch and the winner of that match will go on to face Charlotte for the Women’s Championship at Backlash! However, I want to make sure both women are warmed up nicely and since Dana and Charlotte have shown they’re ready for some action tonight- they will face Naomi and Becky Lynch.. NEXT!!


    Shane then smiles and nods to Renee Young as Renee thanks Shane for his time before the camera footage cuts away from the backstage area and we get another competitor announcement for the upcoming Cruiserweight Classic Tournament.

    We see footage of a young Asian man in a Dojo kicking pads and letting out a “AH” scream after each kick lands on the pad with real force. The man then turns towards the camera and just stares as the footage fads. The video then switches, and the man is now sat down and speaking in his native Japanese with subtitles on the video for translation.



    ???: I’m Akira Tozawa!

    Footage then shows Akira Tozawa during his junior years of wrestling in Japan growing up. Learning and applying his trade in Dragon Gate and listening to coaches.

    AKIRA TOZAWA: I’ve trained all my life for this moment. I’ve earned my chance and I want this more than anything else! I love my country and I’m proud to represent my nation, but I know that if I am to become the best- I have to make it in America, in the WWE!

    Footage then shows former WWE Wrestler- Tajiri and his many career highlights and the comparisons between him and Akira Tozawa.

    AKIRA TOZAWA: I have grown up watching Tajiri and what he did in the WWE. Tajiri is respected and a legend and I know that I have much to learn. But Tajiri is not me. I am Akira Tozawa and you will know my name! I know that the Cruiserweight Classic will be open to many great wrestlers around the world, but none will bring the tension I bring!

    AH! AH! AH! AH! AH!

    I’M READY!


    The Vignette then fades, and we are brought back to ringside where the match announced by Shane McMahon is about to begin! It’s Dana Brooke & Charlotte vs Naomi & Becky Lynch!


    Match Five: Charlotte & Dana Brooke vs Naomi & Becky Lynch.
    Finish:
    The match started with the crowd firmly behind the faces and the heel receiving plenty of heat for their earlier actions on Natalya. Charlotte though seemed unconcerned and strutted around the ring arrogantly as she told Dana that she would start the match. All eyes were then on the opposite side of the ring and there was a pop from the crowd as Becky Lynch would tell Naomi that she wants Charlotte and two would begin to exchange words. Charlotte would then suggest a lock up and Becky would agree. As the two women would jockey to lock up- Charlotte would retreat and would tap an unsuspecting Dana on the shoulder and tell her to get Becky as the crowd booed.

    The match would go 4-5 minutes and all eyes were on Charlotte as she was yet to enter the match and would even avoid being available for the tag from Dana as Becky and Naomi controlled the match. Becky and Naomi would keep each other fresh and would even allow Dana to attempt to pin but Charlotte would refuse to enter the match. It would go from bad to worse for a now exhausted Dana Brooke. The hot tag looked on though and she would leap across the ring and would reach out for Charlotte, but Charlotte would drop to the floor on the outside and would just watch on as the crowd booed once more. “JR” would say that Charlotte wants no part of this match and has left Dana hung out to dry in a bad position! “JBL” would make excuses and would say that Charlotte shouldn’t even be competing tonight after the classic she had at Summerslam and so Dana Brooke is taking on the burden for her Queen! Brooke would watch on as Charlotte left ringside with her Championship and began walking up the ramp. Dana now standing up would walk right into..




    ..REAR VIEW!! Shouted Jim Ross as Booker said it’s lights out for Dana Brooke! Naomi would then drop down and make the cover! One! Two! Three!


    Spoiler:

    WINNERS: NAOMI & BECKY LYNCH!!



    Naomi and Becky would both celebrate in the ring together as their arms would be raised in victory. “JBL” would remind us that both women are smiling now and are all friendly but they’re soon to be enemies as next week they will face each other with the winner facing Queen Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women’s Championship at Backlash! A vignette would then air once more highlighting the impending return of the Anti-Diva, Paige.


    It showcases various pictures of a women at various stages of her life and career starting with her at a very young age in among wrestling fans watching her mother wrestle as the voice over says..


    "Destiny"

    The next picture slides shows the Young women a couple of years older in the ring with her mother- studying and learning the wrestling business with father and brothers watching on as the voice over says..

    "Legacy"

    The third slide then shows the women now at the top of her game, various pictures of her celebrating big victories and holding the NXT Women's Championship and the WWE Divas Championship as the voice over says..


    "Champion"

    The vignette then skips and various negative headlines and bad press appear on the stage with numerous twitter comments painting the women in a bad light as the voice over says..

    "The end?"

    The video then goes dark before a primal scream can be heard and the voice over says..

    "Britani Knight..

    ...The story continues.

    The story is not over..

    ..More chapters are to be written. It's time for the next Paige."




    11/09/2016

    THE ANTI-DIVA IS REBORN.



    >> COMMERCIAL <<




    VOICES!!

    As the live footage returns from the break we are greeted by the theme of the Viper! The crowd pop with excitement as Randy Orton walks out from behind the curtain and on to the stage. Orton stands for a moment- taking in the reaction before walking down the ramp- headed to the ring. Orton is clearly hurting from the war with Brock as Jim Ross recalls the match and the battle that both men went through at Summerslam! Randy Orton reaches ringside and grabs the microphone that was placed for him on the ring steps before entering the ring and speaking his mind.

    RANDY ORTON: Uncasville! I’m beaten and bruised. I’m aching and I’m suffering. Suplex City is hell on earth but I’m still standing! I walked into Suplex City and took everything the Beast had to give me! Suplex! Suplex! Suplex after Suplex! I stood back up and looked the Beast in the eyes and said give me more! I pushed Brock Lesnar to his limits and it’s safe to say that 15 years in the making! We leave a city broken down and smashed up because we tore the house down with a fight!

    The crowd applaud and cheer for the appreciate of the match as Randy continues.

    RANDY ORTON: Now I’m man enough to admit- Brock Lesnar is a freak of nature and maybe, just maybe, I wasn’t ready for what I was getting into after my injury lay-off but I wanted the best and I got the best of Brock Lesnar and I’m telling you that son of a bitch can take an RKO and fight back on like I’ve never seen before! But, I’m telling you now, Brock, Heyman, the WWE Universe! My journey into Suplex City wasn’t a one-way trip and I’ve got a return ticket and I plan on using that in the future! Make no mistake- I’ll avenge my loss and I’ll do what needs to be done! Brock, I’ve survived Suplex City and I’m standing to tell the tale. Can you survive ViperVille?!

    ROAR OF THE LION!!

    The crowd are slightly shocked to see the theme of the United States Champion cut off Randy Orton and respond with jeers. The Ravishing Russian- Lana steps out on the stage first and trailing behind is her husband- The Bulgarian Brute- Rusev! The US Champ and his wife come strolling down the ramp with microphones in hand and enter the ring. Randy Orton just stares at Rusev, unimpressed by the interruption before Rusev speaks to the annoyance of the Viper.

    RUSEV: NOBODY CARES RANDY ORTON! Nobody cares about you! Randy Orton, you lost and failed Team Smackdown! You failed your fans, Randy Orton! Meanwhile the greatest United States Champion of all time defeated Zack Ryder and successfully defended his Championship!

    LANA: That man is the BULGARIAN BRUTE! The UNITED STATES CHAMPION AND THE ONLY MAN FOR ME! MY HUSBAND- RUUUSEEEEEEVVVVV!

    Randy rolls his eyes and turns his back on Rusev as him and Lana embrace in a hug and a kiss as the crowd continue to boo. Orton then attempts to leave the ring when Rusev grabs his arm and swings him back around to face him.

    RUSEV: HEY! I’M NOT FINISHED WITH YOU RANDY ORTON!

    Orton and Rusev are now face to face as the Bulgarian Brute would yell in the Vipers face. Orton though would smile before motioning for Rusev to continue speaking.

    RUSEV: RANDY ORTON YOU ARE A FAILURE! You got humiliated by Brock Lesnar and you have proven that you are nothing but a has-been Randy Orton and you need to be put down for good!

    LANA: RUSEEEEVVVVVVV?! CRRRRUUUSSSSHHHHHHH!

    Lana gives the orders and Rusev drops the US Championship and his microphone before taking a swing at Randy Orton. Orton though see’s it coming and ducks underneath before leaping back up and landing with a picture perfect..



    RKO! RKO! RKO! Shouted Jim Ross as the crowd popped like crazy. Lana was left to watch on as Orton got back up with a smile on his face before staring at the United States Championship as the crowd responded again with cheers. Booker T would ask if that’s a sign that Orton might have just targeted the US Championship and Rusev might regret ever getting in the ring with the Viper tonight! Jim Ross agrees before reminding us that our Main Event of the evening is next, and that the winner will join Seth Rollins and Finn Balor in the World Heavyweight Championship match at Backlash! It’s AJ Styles vs Neville!


    Main Event Match: AJ Styles vs Neville.
    Finish:
    The crowd were excited for the Main Event as Neville vs AJ Styles promised to be an exciting spectacle of a match. Both men came down to the ring looking slightly beat up from their Summerslam matches with Neville especially clutching his back and ribs from the ladder match. The two men started the match with a lock up and some mat-based wrestling and grapping before it exploded into a Japanese strong style showdown with Jim Ross talking up the Japanese influence and history in their respective careers and arsenal of moves and offense. The match would go for a solid 7 to 8 minutes of fast paced and strong style striking influence with both men coming close on so many occasions but the match would continue!


    As things stood both men were in the centre of the ring trading strikes. AJ would block a right hand before unleashing a chop that would light up Neville’s chest and then he would follow that up with a combo of kicks and punches before a spinning back first would clock Neville in the jaw. Neville would be shaken but would stay on his feet as AJ would irish whip him into the ring ropes and would attempt a back body drop to the canvas. Neville would show great ability and awareness though and would slide across the back of AJ’s back before clutching him around the waist and driving him head and shoulders first into the canvas with an impressive German Suplex! Neville would then hook the legs of AJ and with the crowd counting along would score a two count as AJ would kick out!

    Neville would take a couple of breaths to regain his composure due to the speed of the match before dragging back up AJ and sending him back to the canvas with a snap-suplex! Neville would then point to the turnbuckle as the crowd popped with excitement. “JR” would announce that we all know what’s coming and if Neville can land the Red Arrow this one is over, and Newcastle born Neville is heading to Backlash to face Rollins and Finn Balor! Neville scales the turnbuckle and is perched on the top rope. With the crowd stood on their feet in anticipation Neville leaps up in the air and comes crashing down but AJ rolls out of the way and Neville’s already reeling body from the ladder match at Summerslam collides with the canvas and sends him bouncing back off the mat in agony where AJ is waiting with a kick to the stomach and then plants him on the canvas with the..




    ..STYLES CLASH! Shouted “JBL” as AJ rolled over and covered Neville. The Referee would scramble across the canvas and would begin his count! One! Two! Three!


    Spoiler:

    WINNER: AJ STYLES!!


    Booker would put over the match and say that both men have once again shown their class and ability and Neville has shown he belongs in the Main Event scene. Jim Ross agrees before reminding us that AJ Styles will now join Seth Rollins to challenge Finn Balor at Backlash for the World Heavyweight Championship in three weeks! AJ’s hand is raised In victory before the Phenomenal One pushes the Referee and stands tall in the ring. There’s boo’s from the crowd as AJ is joined by his Bullet Club Brothers- Anderson and Gallows. All three men too sweet in the middle of the ring and look about to leave when they see Neville attempting to stand back up.

    Jim Ross is instantly fearing the worst and calls for the Bullet Club to leave the ring! “JR” confirms that the Club are now circling Neville just like they did to Big Cass and others since joining Smackdown Live! AJ then gives the signal and just when Neville reached his feet it was a mugging! 3 on 1 and Neville has no chance until some help arrives from the back!

    CRUISE CONTROL!!

    The crowd give a good pop as the theme of Apollo Crews sounds from the speakers and he comes running down to the ring and slides underneath the ropes. There’s a small window of hope as Apollo charges at AJ and knocks him down before getting in some ground pound. Eventually though Apollo is overwhelmed and both Gallows & Anderson beat him down as the crowd are booing this attack. Jim Ross and Booker are both berating the actions of the Bullet Club and state they’ve had enough of this takeover and the Club thinking they can do what they like here in on Smackdown! “JBL” says that the times are changing, the landscape has changed forever, and the warnings are true, Smackdown belongs to the Bullet Club and who can stop them?!

    CATCH YOUR BREATH!!

    The crowd go crazy with a larger pop and perhaps the biggest of the night as Finn Balor comes running down the ramp with intent. Balor leaps up onto the ring apron and hits a springboard split leg dropkick to Anderson & Gallows from the top rope knocking them down and rolling out of the ring as the crowd are cheering. AJ then attacks Balor and begins to club him on the back before Balor blocks and both men are exchanging right hands. Anderson & Gallows attempt to enter the ring once more, but Neville and Apollo are back up and they both hit picture perfect drop kicks at the same time knocking both Gallows & Anderson of the ring apron and crashing to the floor on the outside once more! Back in the ring and Balor ducks an AJ swinging right hand before landing a Pele Kick and knocking AJ backwards and rolling out of the ring as the faces hold their ground and the Bullet Club retreat up the ramp as the crowd are cheering and the show comes to a close.

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



    29th August 2016 - Houston, Texas - Toyota Center

    A video package immediately begins to play before we kick off Raw, highlighting the events that transpired last week. The clip begins with Cesaro destroying Vince McMahon's limo.

    Michael Cole: The Swiss Cyborg is on a RAMPAGE right now!

    We then see the return of Rhyno, before he nailed a Gore and defeated Darren Young in a match.

    Mauro Ranallo: What an impressive return for The War Machine!

    A clip of Nikki Bella, Sasha Banks & Alicia Fox's exchange in the ring is shown before Daniel Bryan announces a #1 contenders match for next week.

    Corey Graves: Alicia Fox vs. Sasha Banks with the winner becoming #1 contender? We couldn't have it any other way!

    Another clip is shown as The Usos soundly defeated Golden Truth, before explaining their actions from Summerslam to the fans.

    Corey Graves: I'm LOVING this new attitude from The Usos!

    We see Luke Harper's return as he defeated The Miz in a competitive match.

    Mauro Ranallo: I'm expecting BIG things from The Bulldozer on Raw!

    And finally, we see Roman Reigns also explaining his actions from Summerslam- before Dean Ambrose came out. We see the brawl between Reigns & Ambrose, before The Usos intervened- leading to The Bloodline throwing Ambrose off the stage, and onto a triple stack of tables with a Triple Powerbomb.

    Michael Cole: To take out Ambrose with the same move, that he & Reigns had used whilst being part of The Shield? That is disgusting!

    Mauro Ranallo: That was poetic injustice right there!

    The clip then ends with The Bloodline standing tall on the stage, with Reigns raising his belt high in the air to boos from the crowd.



    The cameras immediately head over to the Toyota Center as we see images of the fans going absolutely wild in excitement for Raw! Before we head over to the stage, as the pyros explode to another pop!



    We go over to the announcers table, as Michael Cole says welcome to Monday Night Raw! We have so many things lined up for the WWE Universe tonight, and we don't even know where to begin! Mauro Ranallo says that we will see Sasha Banks take on Alicia Fox with the winner going to Armageddon to take on Nikki Bella for the Raw Womens Championship, that should be one hell of a match! Corey Graves states that we will have the Commissioner of Raw, Stephanie McMahon here tonight as she will address last week's actions of the Intercontinental Champion, Cesaro after he destroyed Vince McMahon's limousine. Cole continues, and he says that we have the WWE Tag Team Champions in The New Day in action tonight, and many, many more great things to come!

    FLIGHT OF THE VALKYRIES

    A HUGE pop in the Toyata Center tonight as the music of Daniel Bryan hits on the PA system. And out comes the GM of Raw, as the fans immediately erupt with a 'YES!' chant. Bryan begins to shout 'YES!' from the stage, before making his way to the ring. He enters the ring, and asks for a mic. The fans continue their 'YES!' chants, before the music stops. As Bryan goes to speak- the crowd don't let him, as they chant 'Daniel Bryan!' over and over again. Bryan smiles, before speaking.

    Daniel Bryan: Houston, Texas- welcome to Monday Night Raw!

    Another big pop.

    Daniel Bryan: I think there's no doubt that tonight is a very serious night for the entire Raw roster. Because last week, we saw actions from many superstars that will just not be tolerated in the WWE.

    Mixed reaction.

    Daniel Bryan: So first of all, I want to begin with the Intercontinental Champion- Cesaro.

    A huge 'Ce-Saro!' chant as Bryan nods.

    Daniel Bryan: Now, Cesaro had mentioned me during his disagreement with the CEO of the company- but as much as I respect The Swiss Cyborg, his actions from last week were irresponsible and reckless.

    Another mixed reaction.

    Daniel Bryan: Cesaro has received a fine of $5000. But that's not going to be the end of this. We will see the Commissioner of Raw in Stephanie McMahon here tonight as she will be here to address this situation.

    Boos.

    Daniel Bryan: Now, I'm unsure whether Cesaro will still be the Intercontinental Champion from tonight- but I will make one announcement regarding the Intercontinental Championship as we WILL see a match for the title at Armageddon for definite. There will be a Fatal Four Way Match to determine the #1 contender.

    Cheers.

    Daniel Bryan: It will be Austin Aries vs. Big Show vs. Titus O'Neil vs. Sami Zayn with the winner going onto Armageddon to compete for the Intercontinental Championship.

    Loud cheers.

    Daniel Bryan: Now, let's move on to another serious issue. As we all saw last week, The Bloodline had brutally attacked Dean Ambrose with a Triple Powerbomb onto a stack of tables.

    Boos.

    Daniel Bryan: Ambrose was meant to invoke his rematch clause at Armageddon- but due to The Bloodline's actions, I would like to reveal that Dean Ambrose is STILL unconscious right now- and the doctors aren't sure when Ambrose will recover from his injuries.

    Bryan speaks with an upset tone in his voice, clearly feeling sympathy for The Lunatic.

    Daniel Bryan: Ambrose, I want to wish you a speedy recovery on behalf of myself, the Raw roster, and the WWE Universe- and I really, really do hope you get well soon.

    The fans erupt with 'Ambrose!' chants as Bryan looks into the camera.

    Daniel Bryan: And as for The Bloodline? What the three of you guys did to Dean Ambrose was absolutely disgusting. There was absolutely NO need for it, and I CONDEMN your actions. You should ALL be ashamed of yourselves for what you did to him.

    Bryan speaks with anger in his tone, as he's not impressed. The fans begin another 'Ambrose' chant until...

    MOTIVATION

    Loud boos can be heard all around the arena, as Roman Reigns' music hits. The WWE Champion comes out with his cousins, The Usos- as the three men interrupt Daniel Bryan, and they make their way to the ring with swagger and confidence. Bryan does not look impressed at all, as The Bloodline enter the ring with mics. They stare Bryan down, but Bryan doesn't back down. Jey Uso begins to speak, as he looks at his brother and his cousins.

    Jey Uso: Yo, did you hear that Rome? Did you hear that Uce? Poor little Dean Ambrose is still unconscious!

    Jimmy Uso: Poor Ambrose... I mean, we got him real good- ain't that right Uce?

    Bryan is NOT happy at all as The Usos laugh, and Reigns looks serious.

    Jey Uso: Daniel, you say that our actions were disgustin'?! You say that you condemn our actions?! Well, that's just a shame, ain't it? Yo, tell 'em Uce!

    Jimmy Uso: Nah, nah! What we did to Ambrose wasn't disgustin'... as far as we're concerned? It was a LONG time comin'!

    Loud boos from the fans.

    Jey Uso: The Lunatic Cringe deserved EVERYTHIN' he got! Y'all wanna feel sorry for Ambrose? Y'all should be HAPPY 'cause The Bloodline put Ambrose where he BELONGS- in a hospital bed!

    Jimmy Uso: That's right Uce! You see, back when we were in the streets- this is exactly what we did! We put guys that were too big for their boots back in their places!

    More boos.

    Jey Uso: We put Ambrose back in his place! Ambrose thought he was The Kingpin.. well the only thing he's the King at is bein' a disappointment to this company, and his fans!

    Jimmy Uso: And y'all can boo us all you want, but Ambrose clearly don't give a DAMN about none of y'all- and that showed last week 'cause if he REALLY cared about every single one of y'all, then he wouldn't have tried to MESS with the WWE Champ, our cousin last week.

    The boos get louder as The Usos continue.

    Jey Uso: You see, we stole the show TWO nights in a row by screwin' Ambrose and takin' him out! And we think it's only fair... that we get rewarded for our actions!

    Jimmy Uso: Damn right Uce! We proved to y'all last week... that we DESERVE a shot at the Tag Team Championships, and we are the ONLY team that can end The New Day's historic title reign!

    Jey Uso: Hell... we should get a shot by default because of who we are! We showed that The Samoan Dynasty are the most dominant forces in the WWE whether y'all like us or not! So Daniel... we want a shot at the tag team titles away from The New Day... TONIGHT!!

    A disappointed look appears on the face of Bryan.

    Daniel Bryan: So let me get this straight. You think that due to your actions over the past few weeks, and because of who your family is- that you deserve a shot at the WWE Tag Team Championships? I DON'T THINK SO!

    The fans cheer.

    Daniel Bryan: You don't decide whether you get a title shot or not. You DON'T get to the top because of who your family is! If you two want a shot at The New Day, then you have to EARN it on Raw like everybody else does!

    Texas clearly agrees with the GM.

    Daniel Bryan: As a matter of fact, what the hell even happened to the three of you? I can't believe what I'm hearing. This isn't like ANY of you guys at all.

    The Bloodline look on.

    Daniel Bryan: I get that you were frustrated, hell- I've been there before. I know how it feels when things don't go your way, but to turn on a man that has fought by your side? Betraying someone who has been loyal to you through thick and thin?

    Bryan is confused.

    Daniel Bryan: Actually, betrayal is absolute understatement. It's one thing to screw a brother out of a championship... but you guys tried to END Dean Ambrose's career.

    The GM continues.

    Daniel Bryan: Do you guys not remember when all THREE of you had issues with The League of Nations? You remember them, right? And when YOU needed a fourth man to counter that faction, who was there for you?

    It was Dean Ambrose.

    Cheers from the fans, as another 'Ambrose!' chant begins.

    Daniel Bryan: And Roman, I didn't expect this from YOU of all people. What the hell went wrong with you & Ambrose? After what you guys did at Summerslam, you didn't even offer an explanation as to why you screwed your brother? Instead, you plotted for him to come out so that you could all destroy him.

    Bryan continues.

    Daniel Bryan: You claim that you're doing this for the Samoan Dynasty... you're doing this all for your heritage. Do you think The Rock would give you a pat on the back for what you did? Do you think Rikishi would applaud you for shortening Ambrose's career? You're not doing your heritage proud at all because as far as I'm aware?

    You're bringing shame to The Samoan Dynasty!

    The fans respond with 'oooohhhh' as Reigns has had enough. The Usos are just as annoyed as Reigns with that statement from Bryan.

    Roman Reigns: Daniel, DANIEL! Do yourself a favour, and shut your mouth!

    Boos for the WWE Champion. He goes to speak, but the fans aren't letting him.

    Roman Reigns: You don't EVER talk about our families again, do you understand?!

    More boos.

    Roman Reigns: We're representing The A'noai Family! And the truth is, we have ALL been vilified our entire careers! But there ain't no denying that we are the most DANGEROUS family in WWE history...

    And we ALL fight dirty when we have to!

    Reigns is making a statement tonight.

    Roman Reigns: You wanna question what happened to us? Well that's not a question you should be asking me or my cousins... you should ask that question to THESE PEOPLE!!

    The fans HATE The Bloodline tonight.

    Roman Reigns: It was THEIR hate that gave us the motivation to show who we REALLY are, and you better believe that it payed off because I'm standing here as your WWE Champion!

    More boos for Reigns & The Usos.

    Roman Reigns: And as for Dean Ambrose? Well everybody can cheer and chant for him all they want... but the truth is? Dean Ambrose is GONE. And he's never, EVER coming back to the WWE again.

    Reigns continues.

    Roman Reigns: We showed Ambrose that this isn't his show, this is OUR show. And it doesn't matter if he was entitled to a rematch clause or not.. because he ain't getting a shot against me anytime soon!

    The crowd are drowning Reigns out with boos.

    Roman Reigns: And like I said last week, if Ambrose wanted an explanation as to why we turned our backs on him? Well, he'd have to beat it out of me. Unfortunately for Deano... he failed.

    'Roman Sucks!' chants from the fans.

    Roman Reigns: Because that's what Ambrose does, he FAILS. He failed at Summerslam, and he failed on Raw- so what makes you think y'all think he could EVER beat me in a rematch anyway, huh?!

    Damn. The boos just intensify.

    Roman Reigns: So ENOUGH about Ambrose, because The Lunatic Fringe is OLD news. He represents the past, and we're looking on towards the future.

    The WWE Champion shows no remorse as The Usos agree.

    Roman Reigns: So Daniel, I'm warning you right now. You BETTER give my cousins a WWE Tag Team title shot tonight, because if you don't?

    Then you will suffer the same fate as Ambrose did last week.

    Reigns gets in Bryan's face but the fans aren't having it, and neither is the GM!

    Daniel Bryan: Hold on... hold on a second. Did you just say that this is YOUR show? Well from the way I see things, you couldn't be more wrong because I'M the GM of Raw- and I RUN THIS SHOW!

    Texas loves an angry Daniel Bryan!

    Daniel Bryan: And the fact that none of you have a SINGLE amount of remorse or regret for what you did to a former friend... it... it makes me SICK to the stomach.

    The Bloodline then begin to laugh, as Bryan looks disgusted.

    Daniel Bryan: You can threaten me all you like, but you aren't going to do anything. You really think that you can cause havoc on Raw by trying to ruin careers, and then have the CHEEK to make demands around here?

    Bryan is speaking the truth!

    Daniel Bryan: Well you couldn't be anymore wrong because The Usos haven't done ANYTHING to earn a shot at the tag team titles.

    Reigns & The Usos aren't happy at all.

    Daniel Bryan: But Roman, since we don't have an opponent for you at Armageddon? I'm simply going to have to make one. So tonight? There will be a Fatal Five Way match to determine the #1 contender to the WWE Championship.

    Cheers as Bryan looks towards Roman.

    Daniel Bryan: It will be Rhyno vs. Luke Harper vs. Sheamus vs. Ryback vs. Dolph Ziggler- and the winner will face you at Armageddon!

    A 'YES!' chant from the fans.

    Daniel Bryan: And you know what they say- what comes around, goes around... and I really do hope that karma comes back to bite ALL three of you in the back!!

    Bryan then drops the mic to another pop from the fans, as he then heads to the back. The Bloodline don't look fazed at all, as Reigns shouts 'BRING IT ON!' from the ring- as he's ready for whoever wants to step up and take his belt from him, and we head to our first commercial of the night.


    >> COMMERCIAL <<


    We're back from our first break, and we immediately head over to the announcers table. Cole recaps how Daniel Bryan had humbled The Bloodline- and made it clear that they don't run this show, but he does. Ranallo agrees, and he says that The Bloodline have been throwing their weight around, but it won't work with Bryan.

    Graves talks about Bryan's announcements for tonight- as we will have a Fatal Four Way match to determine a #1 contender to the Intercontinental Championship, as well as a Fatal Five Way match to determine a challenger for the WWE Championship! But up next, we have a #1 contenders match to see who will face Nikki Bella for the Raw Womens Championship at Armageddon!

    SKY'S THE LIMIT

    Texas responds with a big pop for Sasha Banks- as The Boss comes out to the stage. She's wearing an all gold attire, as the blingy superstar makes her way to the ring for this match. Cole says that this match is so important for Sasha, after she dominated the 6-Pack Elimination Challenge match at Summerslam, only to be robbed out of the title by Nikki Bella. Graves disagrees, and he states that Nikki won fair and square.

    PARTY

    Another light pop for the next superstar, as Alicia Fox comes out to the stage! Alicia makes her way to the ring for this match, as Ranallo says that this match is important for Foxy as well. She has been on a mission to reclaim a spot at the top, which she hasn't had for six long years. Graves says that he's not Alicia's biggest fan, but there's no doubt that she hasn't paid her dues. Alicia then enters the ring, as Sasha looks on...

    YOU CAN LOOK (BUT YOU CAN'T TOUCH)

    And the fans erupt with a loud negative reaction for the Raw Womens Champion, as Nikki Bella comes out to the stage. She flaunts her goods, before making her way to the commentary table- whilst Sasha Banks looks on in disgust. Cole welcomes Nikki to the commentary table, as the referee calls for the bell!

    Match One: Sasha Banks vs. Alicia Fox- #1 Contenders match for the WWE Raw Womens Championship

    Finish:
    The opening match for tonight began at a very slow pace, due to the respect between both women as they started by grappling to gain control. The match has gone on for 8 minutes so far, and the fans have responded positively to both Alicia Fox & Sasha Banks, but they have been mostly behind Sasha. Nikki Bella has also spoke positively of both women, and she has mentioned multiple times that she doesn't understand what Sasha's problem is, to the dismay of Ranallo & Cole.

    Back to the action, Sasha has Alicia in a headlock- as Ranallo states that Sasha is attempting to target Alicia's head following Blue Pants' attempts to exploit the area last week. Alicia does her best to wriggle out of it- before she eventually grabs the ropes. The referee forces Sasha to break the hold as she does so. Sasha then attempts to spin Alicia around, only for Alicia to respond with a Headbutt to the mid-section of Sasha! Graves says that could be costly for both women, as Nikki says that they are both very tough. Sasha stumbles, before Alicia runs from one side to another to strike with Watch Yo' Face...

    But Sasha grabs hold of Alicia's leg before throwing it to the ground... Roundhouse Kick from Sasha! Alicia is clearly hurt but she doesn't go down, as she has her back towards Sasha until... DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER FROM SASHA...



    AND SASHA TRANSITIONS INTO A BANK STATEMENT! The fans cheer as Alicia tries her hardest to break out of the hold, but she's in the center of the ring. Sasha has the move locked in tightly as the fans begin to cheer at the possibility of Sasha going to Armageddon.. AND ALICIA FOX TAPS OUT!!!

    Spoiler:

    Winner: Sasha Banks


    The fans erupt with cheers, as Sasha Banks is the #1 contender for the Raw Womens Championship! The referee raises The Boss' hand in the air, as she looks chuffed with the result. Cole asks Nikki Bella how she feels about facing The Boss at Armageddon? Nikki states that she respects Sasha, but she's pinned her before- and she will do it again on Raw's first PPV.

    Sasha then turns to Nikki who is sitting on the announcers table, as Sasha motions she's coming for the title- as Nikki then takes off her headset, before getting up on the commentary booth, before raising her title in the air as The Boss looks on. The Boss then points at her, motioning that she's going to defeat her. On the other hand, Alicia Fox stirs outside the ring, holding her head in pain.


    Ranallo then talks, and he states that our first match of Armageddon is made, and it's official! Sasha Banks vs. Nikki Bella for the Raw Womens Championship at Armageddon! Sasha then exits the ring, as she walks to the back- and at the same time, Nikki & Sasha continue their trash talk as the cameras cut to the TitanTron.



    The TitanTron shows a dark background... and we see none other than The Bulldozer himself- Luke Harper appearing to a big pop from the fans. He has multiple lightbulbs around him, as he begins to touch one of them- before speaking.

    Luke Harper: Last week, I made my return to the jungle in my hometown of New York... and when I heard all the cheers? I realised that power can change your mind. It was at that moment... when I felt the power of the WWE Universe.

    The Bulldozer then looks to the camera.

    Luke Harper: I proved against The Miz... that they don't call me The Bulldozer for no reason. And tonight? I have the chance to compete for the WWE Championship.

    Harper then grabs another light bulb before analysing it.

    Luke Harper: All my life... I have been told that I would never amount to anything. I was told that I was too damaged to be successful... but I WILL bulldoze my way through the competition, and cement my spot against Roman Reigns at Armageddon.

    As Harper continues to stare into the light-bulb, the camera zooms out to reveal that behind him... is none other than Erick Rowan. And the fans respond with a mixed reaction as Harper notices. Rowan takes off his sheep mask, and the two monsters look each other in the eye.

    Erick Rowan: Welcome back, brother.

    Harper then begins to laugh, as Rowan speaks.

    Erick Rowan: The Wyatt Family are now on two different paths. We have been split up- and our saviour, Bray Wyatt, and our fellow brother... The Monster Among Men, Braun Strowman are lurking around in the darkness on Smackdown...

    The Bulldozer's sinister smiles appears on his face as Rowan continues.

    Erick Rowan: And now? It's our time to roam around on Raw on the path of desolation... and whilst our saviour is not with us? We shall make him proud...

    Rowan continues as Harper looks at him, with a face that suggests disagreement?

    Erick Rowan: Which is why I wish you luck in tonight's main event. Go get 'em... brother.

    Rowan nods in approval, but Harper responds.

    Luke Harper: No... NO! Rowan, you're wrong. Bray Wyatt is NOT our saviour!

    The fans can be heard cheering in the background as Rowan looks confused.

    Erick Rowan: But... but I don't understand.

    Luke Harper: Rowan, you NEED to understand... that Bray Wyatt is a false prophet! He took us both into the family, and he welcomed us to Sister Abigail. He said that he would FIX us. He claimed that he would SAVE us!

    Rowan is listening with a face of disbelief.

    Luke Harper: I know you will hate to hear this... but the truth is? Bray Wyatt USED us. We were nothing but pawns in his sick agenda...

    Harper continues.

    Luke Harper: He fed us with lies... and he controlled us so that we could help him conquer the world. The Eater of Worlds is nothing but a monster with a cold spirit... and he is full of evil intentions.

    After a few seconds, Rowan looks down at the White Sheep mask that is in his hands. Harper points to the mask as he tries to make Rowan see his point.

    Luke Harper: That mask... it says it all. That's all the proof that you need, brother. Just look at it! It shows... that we were nothing but sheep in the eyes of Bray Wyatt.

    Erick Rowan: But... he promised that we would win titles. He promised that we would all be successful.

    Luke Harper: Rowan, Bray Wyatt's promises are poisonous... we can still win titles. We can still be successful... without the guidance of a false prophet.

    Harper then looks into another light-bulb, as Rowan looks back at his partner.

    Luke Harper: Which is why I want you to know... that I am no longer under Bray Wyatt's control because I can see the light, Rowan!

    The two men then look at each other again- as Harper has a grin on his face.

    Luke Harper: I just hope that you can see it too.

    Harper speaks with another menacing grin on his face before The Bulldozer taps his friend on the back, and he walks away- and Rowan looks on with a conflicted look on his face as he isn't sure what to make of this.

    Ranallo states that Harper is clearly out of Bray Wyatt's control as he stated himself that he sees the light... but we can't say the same thing for Rowan, who seems confused at Harper's words. Cole says that Luke Harper is awake, but his words were clearly a shock to the system for Rowan. Graves then questions whether Rowan is on board with Harper, or whether he's still faithful to his 'saviour'?


    >> COMMERCIAL <<


    We're back from a break as it's time for our second match! The cameras cut to the ring, as we see El Local with another local talent under a mask, called Americo. Cole states that the two men are out here for tag team action. We saw El Local last week on Raw as he had lost to Austin Aries, and Americo is a local talent from Texas as they await their opponents.

    "OOOOHHHHH HOUSTON, TEXAS!

    DON'T YOU DARE BE SOUR!

    CLAP FOR YOUR LONGEST REIGNING TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS...

    AND FEEEEEEL THE POWAAAAAAAH!"


    NEW DAY, NEW WAY

    The fans in Texas are clearly excited here tonight, for the arrival of the WWE Raw Tag Team Champions- The New Day! Out come Xavier Woods, Big E & Kofi Kingston as the trio make their way to the ring with mics in hand. The three men then enter the ring, as Big E is set to speak.

    Big E: Two weeks ago at Summerslam, we had our BIGGEST challenges yet! And The Hottest Party of the Summer lived up to it's name as The New Day went toe to toe with American Alpha in a SIZZLING bout of tag team action!

    Xavier Woods: But we KNEW what we were up against, and we delivered! The New Day had our hands raised in victory, but it did NOT come easy.

    Kofi Kingston: We have defeated tag team after tag team to keep these belts, but within those tag teams... has been ONE anomaly.

    The New Day nod in approval.

    Big E: Because, you see... we might have defeated American Alpha, but even we can't deny... that out of all the tag teams we have faced- Chad Gable & Jason Jordan were by far the biggest threats that we've ever had!

    The New Day then enter the ring as an 'American Alpha' chant starts up.

    Xavier Woods: That's right... American Alpha came SO close to taking these titles from us. And after the match, not only did we have our hands raised- but we had no choice but to raise American Alpha's hands too because they had earned our respects- and they showed that they are here in this Tag Team division to stay!

    Loud cheers from the fans.

    Kofi Kingston: That's right- and whilst the present overcame the future, Gable & Jordan BOTH proved exactly why they will be a a big threat in this tag team division, for years to come! However... there is one tag team that haven't done anything to earn our respects. They've been calling us out for several weeks, and it's time we finally gave a response! I wonder... WHO could this tag team be?

    Big E: Who?

    Xavier Woods: Who?

    Kofi Kingston: We're talking about none other... than The Usos!

    LOUD boos for the mention of the twin brothers.

    Big E: That's right, and we've heard EVERYTHING that The Usos have had to say over the last few weeks. And The Usos have a new style! They have a new attitude! They've finally got a purpose to motivate them.

    Xavier Woods: And that's great for them! You see, The Usos have aligned with Roman Reigns to form The Bloodline. The three men have been causing chaos on Monday nights.. but they all claim that THEY run this yard...

    The New Day then sarcastically think to themselves.

    ALL: Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm?!

    Kofi Kingston: But is that really the case? Because for over a YEAR, The New Day have been the longest reigning...

    The New Day begin to shimmy.

    Kofi Kingston: W... W... E... RAW... TAG... TEAM... CHAMPIOOOOOOOOONS!

    A nice pop.

    Big E: And the truth is.. our reign isn't stopping anytime soon! We've been making history for a long time, and we're not gonna stop making history!

    Xavier Woods: And as Daniel Bryan said earlier tonight... The Usos haven't done anything to earn a shot at these titles... you guys were on a losing streak until last week when you defeated Golden Truth!

    Kofi Kingston: Who, by the way- were ANOTHER tag team on a losing streak, until they went their separate ways. You guys have won ONE match, and the GM stated that you were already demanding shots? But nevertheless... we state that if The Usos REALLY want a shot at The New Day? Then we say... Anytime, any place, anywhere!

    A loud pop as Kofi continues.

    Kofi Kingston: Because we're NOT scared of The Usos! We're not paranoid by The Usos' presence because we've fought men that are more tougher and darker than The Usos.

    Big E: We couldn't agree with you more Kofi, I mean- do these guys really think that just because they've entered the dark side, that they can just take these titles away from us? It's not happening!

    Xavier Woods: You guys might have put Dean Ambrose on the shelf- but that's nothing to be proud of considering it took three of you men to do it. BUT when the time comes for action? We WILL kick The Usos' BOOTY'S and give them a dose of positivity because...

    ALL: NEW! DAY ROCKS!

    The fans chant along with The New Day, as Cole states that the message has indeed been sent. If The Usos want a shot at The New Day, then they can have one anytime, any place, anywhere! Graves states that the Raw Tag Team Champions have just made the biggest mistake of their lives, he can guarantee it! The New Day then drop their mics, as the referee rings the bell for the next match.



    Match Two: Americo & El Local vs. The New Day

    Finish: Xavier Woods & Big E represent The New Day for this bout. This match has gone on for 6 minutes so far, as Americo & El Local have got little offense in- due to The New Day being more dominant as they continue their great run of form. The finish comes when Big E & Americo are the legal men. Big E lifts Americo up in position to finish him off, as he tags in Woods. Woods then jumps off the top rope... MIDNIGHT HOUR! The fans cheer, as Woods goes for the cover. One! Two! Three!

    Spoiler:

    Winners: The New Day


    After the match, The New Day celebrate their victory as Kofi Kingston grabs the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship belts, and brings them into the ring. The three men begin to shimmy as it's all positive in the Toyata Center tonight... UNTIL THEY'RE ATTACKED FROM BEHIND!! The fans then erupt with boos, as they are being ambushed by none other than... THE USOS!

    Jey Uso & Jimmy Uso have pushed Big E & Woods to the ground from behind respectively, as they begin to explode with vicious shots to Big E & Woods' face! On the other hand, Kofi attempts to get Jimmy Uso off Big E until Jey Uso turns his attention to Kofi, before stepping in and spinning Kofi around... SUPERKICK TO KOFI! Kofi goes down as Jey Uso then continues his attack on Woods.

    The fans make their feelings heard as The Usos carry on their vicious beat down- not giving The New Day a single chance to fight back. Ranallo says that The Usos' continue to be despicable with their actions! Jimmy & Jey Uso then put Kofi on top of Big E whilst Woods is laid out on the other side on his own, before both men then walk towards the corner. They get up on the turnbuckle, as Graves says that The New Day are about to face the wrath of the twin brothers... DOUBLE SUPERFLY SPLASH!!


    Cole questions what the hell are they doing as Jimmy Uso successfully lands hard on Woods, whereas Jey Uso has landed onto Big E & Kofi. The Usos then get back up to their feets, with a smirk on their faces- and they pick up the WWE Raw Tag Team titles from the canvas. They raise it into the air, as the fans boo loudly- as Graves says that Cole's question has been answered, they simply want those titles, and they are willing to go to any lengths just to get them! Texas respond with loud boos for The Usos.

    Ranallo then moves on, and he states that on the 13th & 14th September this year, we will have our FIRST ever Cruiserweight Classic Tournament, where the winner will recieve a Cruiserweight Classic trophy, and become the FIRST ever WWE Cruiserweight Champion. We've already revealed five competitors in the CWC so far, as we have Ricochet, TJP, Mustafa Ali, Akira Tozawa, and we will also see the return of THE Brian Kendrick! But now, it's time to reveal our sixth competitor!



    A video package then plays as we see clips of a unique superstar from the UK wrestling scene looking at the camera, with his mouthguard on his teeth- ready to fight.

    ???: My name is Pete Dunne... and I'm The Bruiserweight!



    Pete Dunne: I'm 5ft 10, 205 pounds, and I'm from Birmingham, England.

    We see clips of Dunne competing in the UK independent scene as he's dominating various matches.

    Pete Dunne: I learned a lot of my skills from training in the dojos in Japan, and from wrestling in my home country of England. Everything about me is different. The way I wrestle, the way I look, the way I dress. I am the most unique wrestler that will ever step foot in a WWE ring.

    Clips of Dunne stamping on, and pushing back fingers with force in matches are shown.

    Pete Dunne: They don't call me The Bruiserweight for no reason! And I can assure you all that I'm as dangerous as they come. What really sets me apart from the others is that I'm not just looking to win this tournament- I'm looking to break all of my opponents' bodies in half because that's simply what I do.

    Dunne is shown nailing wrestlers with The Bitter End.

    Pete Dunne: I've always been great, but I've just never had a platform like this to showcase what I can do. You can guarantee that I'm going to become the first ever WWE Cruiserweight Champion- and all these Cruiserweights better watch out because I'm coming for all of them!

    The video then ends with Dunne looking confident as ever towards the camera as we head to a break.


    >> COMMERCIAL <<


    The cameras head backstage straight away, as we see The Usos walking around as they are energetic but angry at the same time- following their huge attack on The New Day just before the break. However, the two men go to continue walking- before they then look up, as they see another tag team in front of them... none other than American Alpha! And the fans can be heard cheering as the two teams stare down.

    Jason Jordan: What you guys just did to The New Day? That's not on at all!! It doesn't matter how many times you go around attacking people- it's not going to get you what you want!

    Chad Gable: He's right, you've been told time and time again that if you want a title shot- you EARN it, like how WE earned our shots at Summerslam!

    American Alpha speak the truth, but Jey Uso isn't impressed.

    Jey Uso: Wait, what? Who in the WORLD asked for your opinions, you chumps?!

    Jimmy Uso: But you know what Uce, American Alpha be trippin' anyway 'cause if my memory serves me correct- yeah, they earned their shots... and then they choked against The New Day at Summerslam!

    The Usos begin to laugh as American Alpha then look into The Usos' eyes.

    Jason Jordan: Yeah, maybe we didn't win at Summerslam. But let's not forget about the fact that you were one of the Tag Teams that we went through to get that title opportunity.

    Chad Gable: We've beat you before... and we want another a rematch against The New Day! But the difference between us, and you guys- is that we're willing to earn our shots!

    Jason Jordan:
    So if you wanna face The New Day? You better be willing to go through us!

    Both teams speak with words full of fire as The Usos nod in approval, as American Alpha's words seem to have go into their heads due to the fact that they've calmed down. American Alpha then turn around, and walk off... UNTIL THE USOS THEN ATTACK AMERICAN ALPHA! The fans can be heard booing in the background, as The Usos have took Gable & Jordan to the floor and they viciously kick the two men down!

    Jey Uso: Who y'all think you are, huh? Y'all ain't got a clue who the hell you're dealin' with?!

    Jimmy Uso: It's calm Uce... they do now! Let's bounce man- they ain't even worth the hassle!

    Cole says that this is absolutely ridiculous! The Usos leave American Alpha out on the ground, before the twin brothers then walk away- looking nothing short of proud about the damage they have left behind.



    We go over to the commentary table, as Cole says that The Usos are out of control! Ranallo says that The Usos have took out The New Day, American Alpha- and with Roman Reigns, they also took out Dean Ambrose. Graves says that The Bloodline MEANT every single word they spoke, they are going to RUN Raw, and The Usos were correct. Why would you need the hassle of attacking American Alpha, it could've been a hell lot worse.

    Ranallo moves on, and he says that up next- we determine the #1 contender for the Intercontinental Championship! Cole says that it's unsure whether Cesaro will be stripped out of the title or not for his actions last week, but we will find out who is going to Armageddon for definite a shot at the title tonight! Graves says that he hopes Cesaro gets stripped out of the title!

    MAKING MOVES

    The music of Titus O'Neil blasts on the PA system! The CEO of Titus Worldwide comes out to a light pop, as Cole talks about how O'Neil came up short in the 12 Man Tag Team Match at Summerslam. Ranallo then says that O'Neil has a chance to go to Armageddon with a shot at the Intercontinental Championship, and he must make the most of this opportunity- as all eyes are on Titus WorldWIIIIIIIIDE!

    CRANK IT UP

    Texas then responds with mixed reactions as The Big Show comes out! The 7 feet tall superstar makes his way to the ring, with Graves saying that The World's Largest Athlete will be a huge threat in this match. Cole says that Big Show makes his return to the ring tonight, and he's only got victory in his mind. O'Neil looks on as Big Show enters the ring.

    WORLD'S APART

    A large pop from the Houston crowd tonight for the music of Sami Zayn! Zayn comes out, as he begins to shuffle his way to the ring. The fans are happy to see The Underdog from The Underground, as Cole reminds us that Zayn has been having issues with another superstar in this match- Austin Aries. Zayn declared that this rivalry from Summerslam wasn't finished- as Aries then responded by saying that Zayn was a 'generico back then, and he's still generic now.' Graves says that he couldn't agree more with Aries' words last week!

    AMBITION AND VISION

    The fans then respond with another mixed reaction, with mostly boos- as Austin Aries comes out to the stage. Aries is wearing his black cape... and he has a El Generico mask on?! Ranallo says that Aries is wearing the mask that Sami Zayn used to wear during his independent wrestling days! Sami Zayn looks pissed off tonight, as Cole says that Aries is clearly using this as a way to mock The Underdog from the Underground!

    Aries then enters the ring, with the mask still on- and he gets up on the turnbuckle, as Zayn nods in disapproval. Graves says that he loves Austin Aries' mind games- as Aries then jumps back onto the canvas. He then takes his mask off, before walking over to Zayn as Zayn isn't happy at all. Titus O'Neil & Big Show look very confused.

    Aries then goes to hand over the mask to Zayn, as Zayn can be heard mouthing 'What the hell are you doing?!' as Aries says 'take it, it's yours!' Zayn goes to take it from Aries' hand... only for Aries to pull his hand away to boos from the crowd! Aries then throws the mask in the direction of Zayn's face just like he threw his cape at Zayn at Summerslam... BEFORE ZAYN ERUPTS WITH SHOTS TO THE FACE OF AUSTIN ARIES! The fans go nuts, as Cole says that Zayn has exploded- and the referee as well as Big Show & Titus O'Neil are forced to break things up. The two men are then split apart, as four men are all in separate positions- and the ref calls for the bell!


    Match Three: Austin Aries vs. Big Show vs. Titus O'Neil vs. Sami Zayn- #1 Contender Match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship

    Finish: As soon as the ring bell- Austin Aries & Sami Zayn targeted each other once again, with Zayn still annoyed due to Aries' constant disrespect. Graves stated that Zayn was the one who cheap-shotted Aries, as Cole says that he deserved it. On the other hand, the two veterans in Big Show & O'Neil also fought it out. One moment saw Austin Aries, Titus O'Neil & Sami Zayn all creating an unlikely trio, as they all began to focus dismantling The Big Show. They all successfully knocked Big Show over the top rope to multiple attempts. However, the alliance was short-lived as Aries then quickly turned on Zayn & O'Neil.

    The finish comes when Aries & O'Neil battle it out in the ring. O'Neil throws vicious shots to the body of Aries, but Aries fights back as he ducks under one of O'Neil's shots! The two men then turn around, before Aries grabs hold of O'Neil...



    BRAINBUSTER! Graves says look at the strength of Austin Aries- he just took O'Neil out with FORCE!! O'Neil crashes onto the canvas with the move, as Aries goes for the cover- and Ranallo says that Aries has this in the bag!

    One!

    Two!


    THR- BUT SAMI ZAYN BREAKS THE PIN ATTEMPT!

    Graves says that if Zayn hadn't intervened, then Aries would've been the #1 contender! Zayn manages to save himself in the match as he looks to grab Aries before Aries pushes him- and Aries looks to nail a Clothesline... only for Zayn to duck! The two men then turn around... AND SAMI ZAYN KNOCKS ARIES OVER THE TOP ROPE!

    The fans go nuts as Sami begins to hype himself up- he's about to go for a Somersault Plancha... however- trouble comes calling... as The Big Show enters the ring. Zayn notices this, and he turns around before looking up at the giant with shock and fire in his eyes. Cole says that look at the size difference, Zayn can't take on the giant by himself!

    Big Show begins to laugh, and he shouts 'What you gonna do?!' as Zayn almost looks unsure. Ranallo says that Zayn has never fought in the ring with someone like Big Show. Big Show continues to taunt him- and Zayn nods in approval... BEFORE ZAYN TAKES IT TO THE BIG SHOW!! The fans cheer as Zayn responds with vicious body shots to The Big Show's mid-section... ONLY FOR BIG SHOW TO RESPOND WITH A KO PUNCH TO SAMI ZAYN!

    Zayn is laying on the canvas as the fans boo at The Big Show... only for O'Neil to grab Big Show from behind! Graves asks how the hell has O'Neil gotten up from that Brainbuster?! Ranallo says that O'Neil still looks shaken from the finishing move as O'Neil then puts Big Show in position for a Clash of the Titans and he looks set to hit it... only for Big Show to muscle of it... O'Neil then charges at Big Show...



    KO PUNCH TO THE CEO OF TITUS WORLDWIIIIIIDE!!! The World's Largest Athlete then goes for the cover...

    ONE!

    TWO!

    THREE! AND THE BIG SHOW IS GOING TO ARMAGEDDON!!

    Spoiler:

    Winner: The Big Show


    The fans respond with mixed reactions, as The Big Show then celebrates his huge victory in his first match back on Raw as he earns the right to become #1 contender! O'Neil stirs in the ring- whilst Aries & Zayn are out on the ground outside the ring, as their personal issues tonight have clearly affected the outcome tonight.

    Graves says that The Big Show has done it! Ranallo says Big Show vs. Cesaro for the Intercontinental Championship?! Both men are two of the strongest pound for pound superstars here in the WWE, so that's going to be a huge clash! Cole says that's if Cesaro is still the champion, because for all we know- he may be stripped for his actions last week!



    The cameras then go backstage, as we are in the medical room! We see the WWE doctor as well as Alicia Fox who is sitting on a chair- and she has an ice on her head, following the match against Sasha Banks. The doctor then walks away as Fox thinks to herself. But shortly after this, Alicia looks up to see two individuals staring right at her... they are none other than Prestige! The fans can be heard booing as Alexa Bliss & Summer Rae grin at Foxy, who still looks devastated from her loss to Sasha.

    Alexa Bliss: What's up Foxy? I hope you're okay... you look very, very hurt. I hope that Sasha didn't hit you too hard?

    Alexa looks 'worried' for Foxy.

    Alicia Fox: What the hell do you two want?

    Foxy does not look impressed.

    Summer Rae: Alicia, it's perfectly natural to be angry! It's been a bad couple of weeks for you, don't you think? First, you get eliminated by Sasha Banks at Summerslam in the 6 Pack Challenge match.

    Alexa Bliss: Then you announce that you are going for the Raw Womens Championship... and then out comes Sasha Banks to steal your thunder! And then, you lose to her again tonight? It must be tough, right? Trying to fit into the new era?

    Foxy is not fazed.

    Alicia Fox: Yeah, it has been tough... but not as tough as eliminating the both of you at Summerslam.

    Oooohhhh's can be heard in the background from the fans as Prestige are annoyed.

    Summer Rae: What's with the attitude? THIS is what we get for trying to boost your confidence?

    Alexa Bliss: I don't understand why these grizzled veterans are so moody? Alicia, maybe you're just not used to the idea of growing old!

    Alicia looks as if she's going to lose it.

    Summer Rae: It's not like the new era is doing any favours for you, is it? Let's just face it Alicia, you're just soooo outdated right now. Honestly? It's just pathetic that you're STILL being given chances over people like me & Alexa.

    And with that comment, Prestige then begin to laugh as Alicia looks on... BEFORE ALICIA FOX ATTACKS SUMMER RAE! Chaos occurs in the medical room as Alicia begins to erupt with a beatdown on Summer- but Alexa then grabs Alicia by the hair and pulls her away from the partner. Alexa then grabs Alicia... before THROWING Alicia onto a little table with medical supplies, as the table is then knocked over. Alexa then grabs the icepack as she looks at a fallen Fox.

    Alexa Bliss: Awwwww, what's wrong Foxy? Need some ice for that big head of yours?

    Little Miss Bliss begins to laugh... BEFORE NAILING ALICIA IN THE HEAD WITH THE ICEPACK! Alexa then helps Summer up, and then they walk off- leaving Alicia Fox stirring in the medical room with boos being heard in the background.

    We head back to the commentary table as Cole immediately recaps what just went down backstage- as we had Alicia Fox in the medical room, with The Foxy Floridian clearly being hurt following her match against Sasha Banks. Ranallo says that Prestige went onto attack Alicia Fox after a brief exchange, with Alexa Bliss going as far as hitting Alicia's head with the icepack. Graves moves on, and says that Prestige are finally showing to the world what they are capable of in the Raw Womens division!


    >> COMMERCIAL <<


    The cameras cut backstage again as we see Sheamus who is looking into the camera with a look of vexation as the fans can be heard booing in the arena.

    Sheamus: Tonight? I have the opportunity to go onto Armageddon to take on Roman Reigns for the WWE Championship. But in order for me to do that, I need to go through four other men to become the #1 contender.

    The Celtic Warrior pauses.

    Sheamus: Ya see, there isn't a single man in this match that can pose a threat to me. Luke Harper might seem scary, but we all know he's soft in the inside whether he's in or out of Bray Wyatt's control.

    Fans boo.

    Sheamus: As for Ryback? Well, I've teamed with The Human Wrecking Ball on multiple occasions. I know the havoc that Ryback can cause, but it definitely won't be enough to beat me.

    His eyes look very cold as Sheamus looks very serious.

    Sheamus: And don't even get me started on Dolph Ziggler! He certainly isn't getting in my way because if he does? Then I'm going to decimate that vanilla show-off in the ring.

    More boos can be heard.

    Sheamus: Finally, how about The War Machine himself? Rhyno. He made his return last week in front of a New York crowd. He had the entire arena chanting 'E-C-DUB!' again like it was 2001.

    Sheamus then speaks with fire.

    Sheamus: Rhyno is out of his depth in this match, and if he thinks that he's going to stand a chance against someone as reckless as me? Then he has another thing coming.

    However, as Sheamus says that final line- the cameras zoom out... to reveal "The War Machine" Rhyno standing next to Sheamus! Texas can be heard erupting with cheers as Rhyno has clearly heard Sheamus' words- and he doesn't look impressed. Sheamus almost looks a little worried with the presence of Rhyno- but either way, he stands his ground as the two brawlers both have their eyes locked on each other. The Celtic Warrior then walks away as Rhyno looks on following the tense staredown.



    The live footage then cuts to the ring, as it's time for some more tag team action! We see Kenny & Mickey of The Spirit Squad warming up for the next match, as they wait for their opponents. However, the lights immediately go out as dark music begins to play on the system.

    LET BATTLE COMMENCE

    And all is clear, as the spotlight appears on the TitanTron and we see The Ascension! The fans then boo as Konnor & Viktor make their way to the ring, using their first ever theme music from their NXT days. The two men then enter the ring, as they pose in front of the camera before the lights then go out. Cole talks about how The Ascension have been on an impressive run since being drafted to Raw, as they are definitely a force to be reckoned with. Ranallo & Graves agree, but Graves says that he feels bad for The Spirit Squad, because it's time for them to feel The Ascension rising!

    Match Four: The Ascension vs. The Spirit Squad

    Finish:This wasn't even a match, it was just purely five minutes of absolute destruction. Sprit Squad got little offense in, as The Ascension unsurprisingly dominated throughout the entire match. The finish came Konnor & Mickey were the legal men. Konnor tagged in Viktor- and the two men nailed Mickey with a Fall of Man before Viktor covered Mickey...

    One!

    Two!

    Three!


    Spoiler:

    Winners: The Ascension


    After the match, the lights go back off as The Ascension stand tall in the ring with a spotlight on them- with Ranallo saying that they just continue to grow after each match. Konnor & Viktor do their signature pose in the centre of the ring as the fans respond with mixed reactions...

    LUCHA LUCHA

    IT'S THE LUCHA DRAGONS!! The lights go back on- and the fans in the arena go nuts as Kalisto & Sin Cara sprint down the ramp with The Ascension looking onto the stage! Ranallo says that The Lucha Dragons are out here for revenge! The Lucha Dragons then quickly enter the ring, but The Ascension don't look fazed one bit.

    As a matter of fact, the two teams begin to stare in the ring as the fans are cheering. The Ascension then tower over The Lucha Dragons as Graves talks about the difference in size between both teams... BEFORE KALISTO & SIN CARA MAKE THE FIRST MOVE! They erupt with shots to the face of Konnor & Viktor respectively, as the fans go nuts! But then Konnor & Viktor respond with shots back- and they seem far more powerful.

    The devastating duo then respond with Clotheslines each to Kalisto & Sin Cara... But The Lucha Dragons duck as The Ascension miss! Kalisto & Sin Cara then take multiple steps back as The Ascension then turn around... DOUBLE DROPKICK TO THE ASCENSION! And Texas cheers again as Ranallo says that The Ascension have just been kicked over the top rope by Kalisto & Sin Cara!

    The Ascension can't believe it, as they stand outside the ring with shock in their faces. They then head to the back, as The Lucha Dragons are fired up in the ring. They begin to do their 'LUCHA!' chants whilst looking towards the deadly duo as the fans join along.

    Cole says that The Lucha Dragons are back, and they have immediately started gunning for The Ascension! Ranallo reminds us how before Summerslam, we had a Tag Team Turmoil to determine the challenger for The New Day at Summerslam. In that match, we had Lucha Dragons eliminate The Ascension which lead to Konnor & Viktor attacking Kalisto & Sin Cara viciously after the match, putting them out of action.

    Graves says that this explains why The Lucha Dragons have targeted The Ascension, but how low can you go?! Attacking The Ascension after they've just had a match, what were they thinking? Cole then moves on, and he says that up next- we have a great video package featuring Curtis Axel. Last week, we heard on Axel's reasoning for walking away, and he questioned the possibility of him ever coming back. However right now, we hear Part Two of what's next for Axel?



    Part Two of the video package for Curtis Axel begins on the TitanTron, as we see a graphic with the title.

    "The Pressures of Being Perfect."

    May 23, 2011 - WWE Raw - Michael McGuillicutty & David Otunga vs. Kane & The Big Show- WWE Tag Team Championship Match

    We see footage of Axel wrestling back when he was part of The New Nexus- known as Michael McGuillicutty in this match. We then see the finish of this match Mason Ryan & CM Punk helping McGuillicutty & Otunga win the match to become WWE Tag Team Champions.

    Curtis Axel: Winning the WWE Tag Team Championships with David Otunga was a big moment for me, because it was my first ever title win. But the fact that I had help from others, really tainted the victory in my eyes. I joined New Nexus to make a name for myself- but at that point, I guess being part of New Nexus was changing who I really was- and it's something that I'm not very proud of.

    We see clips of New Nexus causing havoc in the WWE. We also see images of McGuillicutty wearing the New Nexus t-shirt.

    Curtis Axel: "Michael McGuillicutty" was a very strange name to use for my debut- but I simply just wanted to get away from the comparisons to my father, Mr Perfect. I had a lot of people tell me that I was only here because of who my father was, which only motivated me to not just want to live up to my expectations of my father's legacy, but to also create my own.

    June 16th, 2013 - Payback - Curtis Axel vs. The Miz vs. Wade Barrett (c)- WWE Intercontinental Championship Match

    The video then begins as we see footage from the Triple Threat match five years ago at Payback 2013. We see The Miz having Wade Barrett locked in a Figure Four Leg Lock, only for Axel to pin Barrett and become the new Intercontinental Champion! We then see the image of Axel raising his title in the air.

    Curtis Axel: Winning the Intercontinental Championship, by far, was the best moment of my career. There is absolutely nothing else that can compete because I had won the same title that my father had won twice in his career. It was a very emotional moment for me, and it felt like I was on top of the world.

    We then see clips of Curtis Axel with Paul Heyman- as Axel was announced as a Paul Heyman guy. We also see Heyman announcing Axel in various matches.

    Curtis Axel: As a matter of fact, it was Paul Heyman who had actually persuaded me to change my name from Michael McGuillicutty to Curtis Axel- with a blend of my father & my grandfather's names. And when I won the Intercontinental title, I thought I was finally living up to the expectations of my father's legacy. Being a Paul Heyman was great, but it was a shame because it didn't last very long.

    A clip is then shown, as Paul Heyman then announced on an episode of Smackdown that Axel would no longer be a Paul Heyman Guy. We then see footage of Axel defending his title on multiple occasions.

    November 18, 2013 - WWE Raw - Big E vs. Curtis Axel- WWE Intercontinental Championship Match

    We see the finish for this match, as Big E had hit Curtis Axel with the Big Ending- before covering him to become Intercontinental Championship, therefore- taking the belt away from Axel.

    Curtis Axel: When me & Heyman went our separate ways, things just went downhill from there. I had my scheduled rematch against Big E on an episode of Raw... and I lost my title. My reign finished at 155 days, which is a huge milestone for my career- but it was still a tough loss to take in. Following that, I began teaming with Ryback but that was another dark moment of my career. We didn't win a lot of matches, and it wasn't going very well.

    We see clips of Axel teaming with Ryback, as RybAxel would often lose matches.

    Curtis Axel: I think overall, it was losing the Intercontinental Championship was what caused my downfall. It's to easy to feel like you're on top, only to have things snatched away from you within three seconds. After losing the title, I simply felt down. I let myself, and my father's legacy down. My father had left top quality standards behind in the wrestling industry...

    But the pressures of being perfect had clearly got to my head.


    The video ends with two images on a split screen- as we see Curtis Axel raising the Intercontinental Championship in victory, as well as his father, Mr. Perfect also raising the title back when he was champion.



    "To be continued."


    >> COMMERCIAL <<


    Following the break, we go back to the announcers table. Cole hypes up how it was interesting to go inside the head of Curtis Axel. Ranallo hopes that Axel will return to the ring, but he needs to find his motivation back. Graves moves on, and he talks about how up next- we will be graced with the presence of the Raw Commissioner, Stephanie McMahon!

    WELCOME TO THE QUEENDOM

    There are HUGE mixed reactions here tonight, as Stephanie McMahon comes out to the stage. Cole says that she does not look thrilled as she makes her way to the ring- and Graves asks who can blame her? The mixed reactions from the Texas crowd turn more negative. Stephanie enters the ring, and she calls for a mic as he music plays in the background.

    Stephanie McMahon: Stop my music now!

    The Commissioner is in a bad mood.

    Stephanie McMahon: I'm going to cut straight to the chase. There is ONE specific individual on the Raw roster who I'm not happy with. I'm talking about the Intercontinental Champion, yes- that's right. I'm talking about YOU, Cesaro... so you get your ass out here right now!

    Boos can be heard, until...

    MIRACLE

    And those boos immediately turn into cheers, as the fans go nuts with cheers! And out comes the Intercontinental Champion, as he stands on the stage. Cesaro makes his way to the ring, as he slaps the hands of the crowd- and many, many people are holding up their Cesaro Section signs. Cesaro then enters the ring, as his music stops and he grabs a mic. The fans erupt with a 'Ce-Saro!' chant as Stephanie looks confused towards the crowd.

    Stephanie McMahon: Are you all kidding me right now?! Why are you all cheering this man for?! Why do you all chant his name?!

    The chants just get even more louder as Stephanie looks back at Cearo.

    Stephanie McMahon: My father has worked his entire life- and he has busted his ass behind the scenes to pave the way for superstars like you to perform in HIS ring. And I don't know what you were thinking last week when you decided to VANDALISE one of my father's prize possessions!

    Both Cesaro & Stephanie look serious.

    Stephanie McMahon: A limo which my dad had worked so hard to purchase, and you just ruined it like it was NOTHING but a piece of trash. Do you know how much that limo cost?? Do you know how EXPENSIVE that limo was?! You better explain yourself right now because you've just got on the wrong side of authority!

    Stephanie stops speaking, as she waits for The Swiss Cyborg to answer.

    Cesaro: Well Stephanie... it's not like Vince isn't a multi-millionaire, right? I mean... I'm 100% sure that he can afford a new limousine!

    The fans laugh as well as Cesaro, as Stephanie looks on.

    Stephanie McMahon: Why is everybody in this arena laughing?! Do you all think that this is some sort of a joke?! Cesaro, do you find this funny?! Vandalism is NOT a laughing matter, but that's just one thing. But vandalising the property of the CEO of this company?! THAT IS AS SERIOUS AS IT GETS!

    Stephanie speaks with anger but The Swiss Cyborg is not fazed.

    Stephanie McMahon: If it wasn't for us- you wouldn't be in this ring! You would NEVER be the Intercontinental Champion in the new era! You would NEVER had a marquee spot to compete at Summerslam. You should be ashamed of yourself, and you better do yourself- and everybody else in this arena a favour tonight...

    And you better APOLOGISE for what you did last week!


    The bombshell is dropped- as Cesaro simply just rolls his eyes. He pauses for a while, as the fans boo at Stephanie's words. He then looks back at Stephanie.

    Cesaro: At Summerslam, you approached me- and you told me that Vince McMahon would publicly endorse me. You LIED to me to my face so that you could all embarrass me, and now you want an apology?

    It's NOT happening!


    The fans cheer.

    Cesaro: You come out here, and you talk about how this is a NEW era... but it sure doesn't feel like it.

    Cesaro nods.

    Cesaro: It simply just feels like the same old era when The Authority used to bully superstars and throw their weight around!!

    Another pop.

    Cesaro: I just don't get it. You drafted me as #9 on Raw. And then, you gave me an opportunity at the Intercontinental Championship...

    Cesaro continues his point.

    Cesaro: And that's all good and all.... because I WON my match at Summerslam- but WHAT was the point in drafting me to Raw if all authority were going to do is try and hold me down?!

    The Peak of Technique wants answers!

    Cesaro: The worst thing about it is that this isn't even a surprise! We've seen it all before... and I just want to know when is it all going to stop?!

    Cesaro is just so confused right now as Stephanie nods in di
