    Re: Amrocky25 & RatedR31 Presents WWE: We Are The WWE Universe


    Raw News & Notes

    This past Monday night we saw the debut of Gentleman Jack Gallagher who has made his in ring debut on NXT. As of right now it seems like the twenty six year old superstar will be appearing on both shows. It is unsure when he will be making his in-ring debut on Monday Night Raw.

    Right now Raw writers and Nick Kennedy are trying everything to get Tye Dillinger over as a heel. The past few weeks he has gotten a favorable reaction from the crowd which they are trying to negate. That was shown this past Monday when he attacked Bo Dallas and cut a heel promo backstage afterwards. However, more drastic changes may be needed to get the Perfect Ten over as a heel.

    While The Big Show/Baron Corbin program seems to be over it currently seems that Corbin is stuck in “the middle”. Many feel he is not ready for the main event push, but they also feel that he is improving each week and has potential to be the third best upper echelon heel behind Chris Jericho and The Miz.

    WWE Presents…

    Monday Night Raw from Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada

    Episode 14

    October 31th 2016

    “Hollywood Nightmare”

    Then.Now.Forever signature opening plays. Screen is black for a few moments before in big white letters all capitalized “LAST WEEK”.

    Main Event: Alberto Del Rio vs. Randy Orton


    Match Summary: The fans are treated to a very good match-up. From the very start they are clearly all favoring Randy with “RKO” chants. However, ADR is not intimidated by the atmosphere inside the KFC Yum! Center as he is able to get the upperhand in the early portion of this match-up. He is able to hit some quality moves including a backstabber, a release German suplex and a double knee armbreaker. However, The Pride of Mexico’s good fortunate in the early going would cause him to get cocky and take an unneccary risk. From the second rope ADR would look to hit a senton but only get a back full of mat, letting The Viper get back into the match. Orton would come roaring back building up a flurry of offense that included two short arm clothesline, followed by his signature scoop powerslam. Del Rio would try to roll to the outside apron, but there was The Viper dragging him back into the ring and planting him with a SECOND ROPE DDT. The crowd erupts as Orton slithers away from his opponent and begins to stalk him. Orton bangs on the mat multiple times, ready to strike. RK-NO Del Rio pushes off his opponent who hits the ropes staying there. Del Rio charges and gets an elbow to the face that stuns him in the center of the ring. Orton tries to charge at him but SUPERKICK. Orton’s head cocks up to the sky as it’s almost like he is seeing stars before he crashes to the mat. Del Rio goes for the pin and only gets a two count.

    Now it is Del Rio’s turn to play the predator as he is stalking Randy. To himself he is chanting “si” over and over again while it is the crowd screaming no. Orton is holding his head still feeling the effects from that kick which gives Del Rio the perfect opportunity to lock in the CROSS ARM BREAKER! He has it locked in and Orton may have no choice but to tap. What a win this would be for the Mexican A-Lister! Still it’s not over. Orton keeps squirming closer and closer to the ropes, using his long frame to get his foot on the bottom rope. Del Rio keeps the hold in until a count of four before letting go. Whew! That was a close one.

    Orton now favoring his arm needs helps from the ropes to get back to a vertical base before he stumbles into the corner trying to get a quick breather. However, it’s not possible as Del Rio goes to the corner as well perching himself on the second rope as he hammers away on Orton with right fist. The crowd’s count gets to nine as Orton slides through. He goes to grab Del Rio who delivers a strong mule kick to the chest of Orton who stumbles back from the impact. Del Rio then goes for A SECOND ROPE MOONSAULT AND HITS IT INTO A PINNING PREDICAMENT BUT GETS A TWO COUNT. SO CLOSE! Del Rio looks at the referee and can’t help but feel like the count was too slow, but the match continues. Del Rio drags Orton back up to his feet and attempts to go for an Irish Whip, but Del Rio is sent into the ropes. ADR wraps his arms around the top rope. Orton sees it and charges in hitting a clothesline that sends Del Rio up and over.

    Orton goes to chase after his opponent but….

    ????

    Randy! Hey RANDY!

    UP ON THE TITANTRON APPEARS CHRIS JERICHO. Orton cocks his head confused at what the WWE Champion wants. The WWE Champion has a smile on his face.

    Jericho


    Congrats on becoming number one contender to the WWE Championship last week.

    (pauses)

    I know…I know…you’re probably shocked that I’m congratulating you after YOU interrupted by Championship Celebration, but I guess that was payback. After all, I did interrupt your stupid torch passing ceremony many years ago.

    A small smirk appears on The Viper’s face. Probably surprised that Y2J remembered that.

    Jericho


    Speaking of the past, let me just give you a summary of what has happened since you’ve been gone. I’ve prevented history at SummerSlam and at No Mercy I proved I’m not afraid of a Lunatic. With that said Randy…at Survivor Series I prove that you are the prey and I am the predator, because I am the BEST IN THE WORLD!

    Orton begins to turn red with anger as Jericho laughs as an evil grin forms on his face.

    Jericho


    Oh and one more thing Randy….

    (pauses)

    You’re not the only one who can hit a move out of nowhere, YOU STUPID IDIOT!

    Orton seems confused as he turns around RIGHT INTO A CODEBREAKER! THE WWE CHAMPION JUST HIT A CODEBREAKER OUT OF NOWHERE! TREMENDOUS HEAT FROM THE LOUISVILLE CROWD AS THE REFEREE RINGS THE BELL.
    Jericho stands tall in the middle of the ring with the WWE Championship in hand. The signature Raw opening video featuring “Light Up The Sky” plays the ending of the video shows Chris Jericho with a smirk on his face inside the ring.

    *PYRO*


    *PYRO*

    *PYRO*

    The Las Vegas crowd is ready to go and so are the superstars of Raw (and two certain superstars from Smackdown). The cameras show various members of the WWE Universe before we hear the voice of Tom Phillips.

    Phillips


    With Survivor Series three weeks away this is Monday Night Raw from Sin City! Happy Halloween everyone…I’m Tom Phillips alongside me JBL.

    JBL

    One of my favorite cities to visit and thank god I have lots of money, because I always seem to be losing.

    Phillips

    Well hoping that luck is on their side are Jack Swagger and Cesaro…

    A match graphic appears of Swagger and Cesaro on one side with the WWE Tag Team Champions, The Revival on the other.

    Phillips


    …in our main event they will be taking on The Revival.

    JBL

    Trust me when I say the lights shine bright here in Las Vegas, but there are no brighter lights than the spotlight on The Revival. They’re the top guys and they’ll once again prove it tonight.

    Another graphic appears with Alex Maverick, Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns which generates plenty of heat from the crowd.

    Phillips


    Smackdown GM Alex Maverick is here with two of his superstars that have cause chaos the last two here on Raw, mainly targeting John Cena.

    JBL

    These two have been nightmares to handle. They’re not the only ones on this crusade. Last week we saw Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins join them. It seems like the whole Raw locker-room is on notice.

    Phillips

    All except for one superstar. That man is Dolph Ziggler who made an appearance on Smackdown this past Tuesday costing Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns in their match last week.

    JBL

    He may regret that decision as he is all alone tonight.

    Phillips

    What John is saying is due to the signature Shield powerbomb through the table last week; John Cena did not make the trip to Las Vegas tonight due to a minor injury.

    *Break The Walls Down*

    A mixed reaction for the WWE Champion….Y2J Chris Jericho who has a smirk on his face, still very pleased about his Codebreaker out of nowhere last week. He walks slowly down the ramp as the cameras pan to inside the ring where we see The Highlight Reel, including the Jeritron 5000.

    JBL


    It’s Halloween and what a treat to kick off Monday Night Raw, the Highlight Reel from the Best in the World!

    Phillips

    It was last week on Monday Night Raw when Jericho would hit a Codebreaker out of nowhere during Randy Orton’s match against Alberto Del Rio. Tonight Jericho said he wants to talk to Randy face to face.

    JBL

    What an honorable thing to do.

    Jericho gets into the ring and with a microphone he already grabbed from the steel steps. He stands at the center of the ring and scans the WWE Universe while he waits for his music to die down. He slowly brings it up to his mouth
    .

    Jericho


    I see a lot of Chris Jericho costumes in the crowd…

    He ain’t lying. Second row the camera shows a man in his mid-twenties with a replica WWE Belt around his waist dressed up as the champion. He puts his arms in the air.

    Jericho


    …you stupid idiots can dress like me, and act like me, but you can never be me because there is only one Chris Jericho.

    (putting his arms out and raising his head)

    Drink it in maaaaaaannnnnnn.

    The crowd boos as Jericho stands there like a statue. He slowly brings his head back down before continuing on.

    Jericho


    The WWE Universe isn’t the only one guilty of dressing up in costume. There are plenty members of the Raw roster that wear costumes as well.

    (pauses)

    For example John Cena dressed up as a likeable guy.

    The crowd boos, some directed at the champion, others at the mention at John Cena.

    Jericho


    I think Kevin Owens and company are demasking him of that.

    Just the mention of KO’s name gets the crowd booing.

    Jericho


    Nick Kennedy is dressed up as a competent General Manager when we all know he’s a lonely sad soul who lives in his mother’s basement.

    Jericho smiles as the crowd boos.

    Jericho


    Then we have my opponent at Survivor Series….Randy Orton.

    The crowd cheers.

    Jericho


    Randy has worn plenty of masks over the years. He started out as a young sprite third generation superstar. From there he was the future of Evolution. After that he was a Legend Killer…

    (pauses)

    OOOOOOOO SCARRRRYYYYYY! The scariness doesn’t end there!


    (pauses)

    He went from Legend Killer to hearing voices in his heads. They told him to become a leader of a Legacy. Then when the Legacy started to turn on him, he struck first become the predator instead of the prey he became a….

    He looks into a camera.

    Jericho


    (slowly)

    Vi-per.

    The crowd buzzes as Jericho lets the word sink into the minds of the WWE Universe.

    Jericho


    That is the current masks he wears today and like every good mask it scares the crap out of people.

    (pauses)

    Except for me…

    Jericho looks proud as he stands tall.

    Jericho


    When you take all those masks off you know what Randy Orton is?

    (pauses)

    A coward.

    The crowd boos.

    *Voices*

    Jericho turns to face the ramp as the crowd comes alive inside the Thomas & Mack Center. The Viper comes out and slowly makes his way down the ring.

    Phillips

    Here comes The Viper and he has heard enough out of the WWE Champion.

    JBL

    As Jericho said he’s not afraid. He is standing tall inside that ring.

    At the bottom of the ramp Orton stares down the champion before making his way inside the ring and just as he does, Y2J rolls out of the ring, much to the disappointment of the crowd and The Viper.

    Phillips


    What was that about Jericho not being afraid John? It looks like he’s running away to me which means he’s afraid.

    JBL

    No it does not! Jericho is just playing mind games and being smart. That’s why he is the Best in the World.

    Chris Jericho gloats on the outside as Randy Orton is seething on the inside. The camera shows Jericho who is telling Orton “not tonight”.

    *Backstage Area*

    The crowd cheers as we see one-third of The New Day (Kofi Kingston). He is texting on his cell phone when Xavier Woods jumps into the frame looking confused. Kingston notices.

    Kingston


    What’s up X?

    Woods

    Have you seen Big E. at all? We have that match against The Vaudevillians tonight.

    Kingston

    No I haven’t seen him.

    Woods

    Man for a big guy he can hide easily.

    (pauses)

    He’s like the hide and go seek champion!

    Kingston

    I know!

    Kofi notices Big E. in a Eric Rowan sheep mask slowly tip-toeing behind Woods.

    Woods


    I can’t believe The Vaudevillians want to face us again. How many times do we have to beat them?

    Kingston

    They think if Big E. competes in the match that will change their fortune.

    Woods

    Which is why we need to find him!

    Woods starts to pull out his cell phone and begins to dial.

    Woods


    How are you not worried?!?!?

    Kingston

    I’m sure he’ll pop up somewhere.

    Woods raises the phone to his ear. Big E. with the mask on is only a few inches away from him. He taps Xavier on the shoulder. He turns and immediately jumps in the air frightened letting his phone hit the ground as he nearly jumps into the arms of Kofi. Kofi starts to laughs as does Big E. after he takes off the mask. Xavier doesn’t seem too pleased.

    Woods


    I hate you! You know I’m scared of the Wyatts!

    Big E. and Kofi continue to laugh but they are interrupted by someone clearing his throat. Into the frame appears Jack Gallagher. He is sharply dressed which causes the New Day to do a double take.

    Big E.


    Who are you supposed to be dressed as?

    Kingston

    James Bond?

    Woods

    Too pasty!

    Big E.

    Mr. Peanut?

    Woods

    He’s missing the Monocle.

    Kingston

    Then who are you?

    The New Day

    Who? Who? Who? Who?

    All three members of The New Day look at each other confused.They turn and look at Gentleman Jack who pulls out three business cards and hands it to them.

    Gallagher


    Jack Gallagher…gentleman for hire.

    The New Day

    Whoa…

    Kingston

    We’re not into that kind of thing.

    Big E.

    Although it is legal down here in Las Vegas.

    Woods

    You would probably get a better response from the women’s locker-room.

    Gallagher looks confused, much like the younger members of the WWE Universe. However, the older members and Las Vegas natives know exactly what’s going on. Kofi then studies the cards and slaps his hand against his head.

    Kingston


    Guys he’s not that kind of gentleman. He’s teaching superstars how to become gentleman.

    Woods & Big E.

    OOOOOOHHHHHHH!

    Gallagher

    And my first clients are The Vaudevillians; however they have made it clear that they don’t want to be gentleman.

    Jack hangs his head. Woods tries to comfort him.

    Woods


    I think they need more than someone teaching them how to be gentleman.

    Big E.

    Yeah they need someone to teach them how to win matches.

    Gallagher

    I can help them in that aspect as well.

    Kingston

    If that’s the case you should be in their corner tonight.

    Gallagher

    You think?

    Woods

    Yes! How do you think we’ve become so successful? We always have an extra guy in our corner cheering us on with the power of positivity.

    Gallagher rubs his chin and ponders the idea for a few moments as the New Day anxiously wait for a response.

    Gallagher


    You lads are right!

    He begins to get all giddy.

    Gallagher


    See you out there and good luck gentleman!

    He shakes hands with each member of the New Day before leaving as the watch him leave. A small smile appears on Xavier’s face.

    Woods


    They’re going to be so angry he is in their corner.

    Kingston

    You got that right!

    The crowd laughs as Raw goes to commercial break.

    *Commercial Break*


    *Real Deal*

    Emma and Summer Rae come out as the crowd boos. Both girls nod at each other as before heading down to the ring with a confident swagger.

    JoJo


    This match is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first the team of Emma and Summer Rae!

    Phillips

    Emma and Summer Rae have had an alliance as of late, dating back to a month ago when Emma put the request in with Raw General Manager Nick Kennedy aka her boyfriend to tag with Summer instead of Nikki Bella.

    JBL

    It’s smart. Paige and Bayley are friend’s Emma is just aligning herself with someone else so she isn’t teamed up on unfairly.

    Phillips

    Speaking of unfair it was last week Summer Rae would interfere in Emma’s match with Bayley, distracting Bayley causing Emma to pick up the win.

    JBL

    Don’t think Bayley wouldn’t try the same thing. Emma just came up with it first.

    *Turn It Up*

    Bayley comes out to a huge pop. She takes a few steps atop the ramp before raising her arms high in the air as inflatable arm flailing tubeman on each side of her start to wave in the air. She makes her way down to the ring giving hugs to the younger members of the WWE Universe sporting her gear.

    JoJo


    Their opponents…first from San Jose, Calfornia….IT’S BAYYYYLEY!

    Phillips

    Bayley is three weeks removed from her lost at No Mercy, but she still has a huge smile on her face.

    JBL

    I don’t know why…she keeps losing! When Ron and I lost we would throw fits.

    Phillips

    Maybe that’s what makes Bayley such a great competitor. She knows each and every match is like a new chapter in a book.

    JBL

    Well if she keeps losing that book will be ending very soon.

    *Stars in the Night*

    Paige flashes a little smile before skipping sideways down the ramp making sure to flash her championship around her waist for everyone to see.

    JoJo


    Her partner from Norwich, England….Paiggggeeee!

    Phillips

    In twenty days Paige will be taking on Emma for the WWE Women’s Championship and for the last few weeks Emma has gotten the better of the champion.

    JBL

    Emma has lots of momentum. Paige needs to get some back are she may not be champion for much longer.

    Match 1: Emma/Summer Rae vs. Bayley/Paige

    Match Summary: Throughout the match Emma does her best to stay away from her Survivor Series opponent. It could be mind games or it could be the fact is Emma is afraid to face a much more motivated Paige. Either way the two are really never in the ring at the same time. Joining the action we see Emma connect with a scoop slam on Bayley before bouncing off the ropes and hitting a leg drop before shooting the half and only getting a two count. Emma taunts Bayley a little who tries to crawl to her corner, but Emma kicks the hand that Bayley reaches out with. In pain Bayley rolls to the corner to try and shake the hand out. Wrong moves as she is in perfect position for Emma to charge in and hit the Emma-mite sandwich with violent authority. She drags Bayley’s body to the center of the ring and again only gets a two count.

    Emma is not pleased and is only angered by the resiliency of the former number one contender. She waits for her to stand and goes for a kick, but Bayley catches it and pushes it down before hitting a running double axe handle, followed up by another one. She then goes towards the corner and hits Summer with one knocking her off the apron. She turns back around and gets nailed with a clothesline! Emma goes for a pin getting a two count. Emma quickly locks in a headlock gaining control of the match-up once again. Paige on the outside stomps her foot on the steel steps getting the crowd into it. Bayley slowly works herself back up and is able to counter the headlock into a back suplex! Both women are down. Summer is back up on the apron pleading for a tag, while Paige is ready to go in her corner and is begging for a tag as well. Both women crawl and tag their partner in at the same time!

    The champion explodes out of her corner and quickly is on the offensive knocking Summer Rae down with two clotheslines. Summer gets up and is knocked into the corner by a headbutt from the champion. The champion grabs her and whips her into the opposite corner. Summer stays there and sees a charging Paige coming at her. Summer gets an elbow up and goes to the second rope. She jumps off, but is knocked down to the mat by a dropkick to the stomach. Paige then runs and successfully knocks her Survivor Series opponent off the apron. She screams at Emma “This Is My House”. The champion turns back around to see Summer holding her stomach, but through the pain is up on her feet. Not for long as PAIGE HITS THE RAM-PAIGE! The ref anticipates a pin, but Paige looks to inflict more damage. She grabs Summer from behind and locks in the PTO APPLYING PLENTY OF PRESSURE. Summer Rae taps as Paige stares at Emma sending a message!

    Winners: Paige & Bayley

    The crowd cheers as Bayley puts her hands up in the air in victory. The champion’s music plays, but the anti-diva is not done. She continues to hold onto the vicious submission while Emma looks at her on the outside. Summer continues to tap and begins to scream in pain, but Paige is not letting up. All her attention is on Emma. Finally it is Bayley stepping in and getting Paige out of the trance, by pulling her arms, causing the hold to be alleviated. Bayley doesn’t seem to appreciate Paige’s actions as she checks on Summer along with the referee. Paige can care less as she is staring down Emma, who is making her way up the ramp, staying as far away as she can from the champ.

    JBL


    You saw that Tom?!?! Paige sent a message!

    Phillips

    But did she cross the line? Summer appears to be seriously hurt.

    JBL

    It’s a intimidation factor. Emma holds two victories against Paige, she had all the momentum. Now she’s thinking twice about stepping in the ring with Paige.

    Phillips

    Well come three weeks she has not choice but to get in the ring with Paige if she wants to be the new WWE Women’s Champion.

    Bayley is talking to Paige who just ignores her.

    *Backstage Area*

    We see Nick Kennedy walking through the backstage area. He turns the corner and quickly runs into the chest of someone much taller and muscular than he. He looks up and the crowd boos as an angry Roman Reign’s looks down at the Raw General Manager.

    Reigns


    Excuse you…

    Nick Kennedy then looks and sees Kevin Owen’s flanking Reigns to his left, equally angry. Kennedy looks at both men, but before he can say anything.

    ??? (O.S.)


    Excuse you guys…

    The duo doesn’t seem pleased they are being told to do, but parting like the red sea are Reigns and Owens in between them appears Alex Maverick who gets a nice cheer from the crowd. Nick looks relieved to see his best friend.

    Maverick


    As promised we are here.

    Owens

    As we announced, unlike Dolph Ziggler who appeared on…

    (points to him and Roman)

    …our show and-

    Maverick

    (interrupting)

    You mean my show.

    Owens looks like he is about to snap however he composes himself.

    Owens


    …appeared on Smackdown and interfered in my match.

    Nick rubs his chin.

    Kennedy


    It doesn’t feel good when you’re the victim instead of the oppressor, huh? Try being John Cena. You attacked him-

    Owens

    I told the entire world I was coming for him.

    Kennedy

    Maybe the first time, that’s debatable, but not last week and thanks to that attack last week he is not here tonight.

    A small smile appears on KO’s face as the crowd boos.

    Reigns


    He should be thankful we didn’t end his career.

    Owens turns to Maverick.

    Owens


    Then why are we here wasting time?

    Maverick

    Nick and I have made a decision.

    Owens

    Decision?

    Kennedy

    It seems like you guys have not only formed allies, but enemies as well.

    Both Owens and Reigns look at each other.

    Kennedy


    In three weeks at Survivor Series you two and your newly formed allies Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, will be taking on the team of John Cena, Dolph Ziggler, Apollo Crews, Neville and Zack Ryder in a traditional Survivor Series five on five tag team elimination match.

    The crowd goes wild as Reigns and Owens are fuming. For the first time they seem speechless! What a bomb the Raw general manager dropped on them.

    Maverick


    Team Cena vs. Team Owens!

    (looks at Owens)

    You wanted to be the center of attention…so here is it!

    Owens looks speechless as is Reigns. Owens turns to Kennedy like he is about to lash-out, but once again shows great composure. He starts to storm off being followed by Roman. Maverick takes a spot next to his friend.

    Kennedy


    (yelling)

    Oh Kevin….?

    The camera shows Owens slowly turning around still red in the face from the announcement.

    Kennedy


    You also have a match one on one with Dolph Ziggler tonight.

    Owens just seems to accept his faith as he slowly turns back the way he was going much to the surprise of both general managers.

    *Commercial Break*


    *Announce Table*

    We see the Raw duo sitting at their announce table welcoming the crowd.

    Phillips


    Welcome back to Monday Night Raw and before the break we just found out that a new match has been added to Survivor Series. After two weeks of sneak attacks from Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns on John Cena…it will be Team Owens vs. Team Cena in a traditional five on five elimination tag match.

    JBL

    You forgot to mention the sneak attack from Dolph Ziggler this past Tuesday on Smackdown Live! This is madness. These two idiots Kennedy and Maverick are abusing their power. Where are Stephanie and Shane to step in?

    Phillips

    I love it! Finally Kevin Owens shut-up.


    JBL

    Someone ought to shut you up Tom.

    “Awwwwwwwwwwwww Las Vegas! Don’t you dare be sour! Clap for your world famous former two-time champs and feel the power!”

    “It’s A New Day, Yes It Is”

    *New Day, New Way*

    JBL

    (sarcastically)

    Great…

    (pauses)

    …Tom please keep talking!

    Phillips

    Come on John, this is perfect timing! You need the power of positivity in your life, especially after your negativity on the blackjack table earlier today.

    The New Day make their way down to the ring tossing boxes of Booty O’s to the crowd.

    JoJo


    This match is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first accompanied to the ring by Xavier Woods and representing The New Day… Big E. and Kofi Kingston!

    They get into the ring. We see Big E. still has the sheep mask on his head. He waits for Woods to get distracted before lowering it. Woods turns and once again Big E. scares the crap out of Woods, much to the delight of the WWE Universe. Woods quickly grabs the mask ripping it off E.

    “Gather round everyone and witness the debonair devastation of such exquisite sophistication…Aiden English….Simon Gotch….The Vaudevillians!”


    *Voix de Ville*

    Fun is over as the continuously losing Vaudevillians appear. However, that doesn’t deter them as they still look focused as they turn their bad luck into good here in Vegas.

    Phillips


    This will be the third match-up between these two teams and John things have not gone right for the Vaudevillians.

    JBL

    No it has not. They’re getting desperate for a win over this team. They are trying everything, it’s like the box of Booty O’s put a curse on them.

    Phillips

    That’s a bit ridiculous…don’t you think? It’s a mass produced breakfast cereal, part of a balanced breakfast.

    JBL

    It’s also the key to the Vaudevillians losing streak. Ever since they got touched by Booty O’s a few weeks ago, they can’t buy a win.

    Phillips

    Well it is Halloween so I’ll let this ridiculous story slide.

    Match 2: Big E. & Kofi Kingston w/Xavier Woods vs. The Vaudevillians

    Match Summary: The bell rings and this match is underway. Gotch and Kingston are the two that are going to start off. They take a few laps around the ring and look ready to lock up but…

    *Les Toréadors*

    Gotch seems confused as power-running down the ramp we see Gentleman Jack Gallagher.

    JBL


    What is this idiot doing out here?

    Phillips

    Remember The New Day said he should be in the corner of The Vaudevillians.

    JBL

    Who cares what the New Day said? The Vaudevillains don’t want him.

    You got that right John as both Gotch and English are seen voicing their opinions towards Gallagher. The two sides begin to get in a spirited argument, which is all Kofi needs as he gets behind Gotch who was preoccupied with Gallagher rolling him up with a school-boy pin and getting a three count!

    Winner: Big E. & Kofi Kingston

    Big E. and Kofi roll to the outside as both members of the Vaudevillians have their mouths dropped to the floor as is Gentleman Jack’s. The New Day celebrates and as they pass Jack they go for a high five, but he ignores them. Gotch and English are in the ring as they both begin to yell at the young man.

    JBL


    See what I mean?!?!?! Not only are the Booty O’s cursed so is this Jack Gallagher.

    To his credit Gentleman Jack tries to get in the ring to explain his side of things and apologize. He even sticks out his hand for a spirited handshake of forgiveness. However, The Vaudevillians are not in the forgiving mood. Instead they hit Jack G with the WHIRLING DERVISH!

    Phillips


    C’mon that wasn’t necessary! He was only trying to help and be supportive.

    JBL

    Well next time he’ll think twice about it.

    Both men take a bow in front of Gallagher who is flat on the mat before they leave.

    *Backstage Area*

    We see Kevin Owens pacing back and forth as Roman Reigns stands tall.

    Owens


    How can they do this? I didn’t come to Raw to compete. I came here for an apology.

    (looks at Roman)

    They set us up! Both shows are being run by Long Island Losers.

    Reigns

    What do you suppose we do?

    Owens

    I’m a Smackdown superstar! I can’t compete on Raw. I’m pretty sure it’s in my contract.

    Owens pulls out a cell phone and begins to dial. He goes to leave but stops. Roman turns and is face to face with the Lone Wolf Baron Corbin who gets booed by the crowd. Reigns and Corbin stare each other down.

    Reigns


    Can we help you?

    Corbin

    No…

    (pauses)

    …but I can help you.

    Owens

    You have two minutes.

    Roman backs down and stands next to Owens whose arms are folded.

    Corbin

    I understand you guys have a match a match at Survivor Series and I want in.

    The Big Dog turns to KO.

    Reigns


    We do need a fifth member.
    Owens rubs his chin.

    Owens


    I thought you didn’t play well with others?

    Corbin smirks.

    Corbin


    I don’t, but I’m willing to join the cause. I too have been overlooked.

    Reigns and Owens both stare down Corbin before turning their backs and having a small discussion. They turn back around.

    Owens


    You’re on the team…

    (pauses and puts up a finger)

    …under one condition.

    Corbin

    Anything.

    Owens

    You take my spot against Dolph Ziggler and beat him, you’re on the team.

    Corbin

    (smiling)

    With pleasure.

    Corbin goes to leave…

    Reigns


    Don’t disappoint us.

    Corbin stops for a few moments as the two Smackdown Live members stare him down before Corbin leaves.

    *Commercial Break*


    *Man With A Plan*

    Inside the ring we already see The Brian Kendrick dressed for action. Eva Marie is by his side as Kendrick has a microphone already in his hand.

    Kendrick


    I’m here to enlighten you all with another one of my lessons. Lesson number three…

    (turns to Eva)

    …you writing this down?

    She nods pulling out her pen and notepad before Kendrick refocuses himself.

    Kendrick


    Believing in yourself is the first secret to success.

    JBL

    Well it’s not much of a secret now if he just told the entire WWE Universe.

    *Outcasts*

    A small reaction from the Las Vegas crowd as Bo Dallas leads the way out from behind the curtains followed by Curtis Axel. Dallas has a microphone in hand and begins to speak while walking down the ramp.

    Dallas


    Brian I applaud your efforts. Not many superstars are willing to teach others.

    Eva can be seen patting TBK on the back and saying thank you.

    Dallas


    However, it is with great pride that I must inform you that I am your opponent tonight.

    Kendrick doesn’t seem too happy by that comment as Dallas gets into the ring with a stupid grin on his face.

    Dallas


    And I BO-Lieve lady luck is on my side tonight.

    Kendrick

    Oh do you now?

    Dallas nods as Kendrick turns to Eva clearly not taking Bo Dallas seriously.

    Kendrick


    Well okay…!

    KENDRICK QUICKLY STRIKES AND HITS BO DALLAS WITH THE MICROPHONE. The crowd boos as Kendrick continues the attack stomping away on Bo Dallas. Eva Marie quickly scurries out of the ring. The referee does an excellent job of getting Kendrick off of Dallas, but the Man with a Plan got plenty of cheapshots in. The referee checks on Dallas as Kendrick waits to strike in the opposite corner. Dallas says he can go so the referee rings the bell.

    Match 3:
    The Brian Kendrick w/Eva Marie vs. Bo Dallas w/Curtis Axel


    Match Summary: Kendrick continues to have the advantage in the early going. He tries to end the match early looking to hit Sliced Bread #2, but it is Dallas pushing Kendrick off of him before hitting a beautiful dropkick. Kendrick is up first and grabs Dallas by his long brown hair, but here comes the third generation superstar fighting back delivering a series of punches to the ribs before hitting a Belly-to-belly suplex. Dallas then bounces off the ropes and hits a jumping knee drop to the face of his opponent before going for a pin and getting a two count.

    Bo begins to stalk his opponent who slowly getting back to a vertical base. We see Kendrick stumble into a kick from Bo who then connects with a beautiful Bo-Dog. Kendrick lands hard on his face as Bo turns him on his back. Eva Marie tries to will Kendrick on, but it is too late as The Brian Kendrick is pinned for a three count.

    Winner: Bo Dallas

    Eva slides into the ring and checks on her mentor, while Bo and Curtis Axel celebrate on the outside.

    Phillips


    It’s hard to out bo-lieve Bo Dallas and The Brian Kendrick found that out tonight.

    JBL

    At this rate Eva should just stop taking notes. I’m surprised she still has paper in that notepad with all the pages she has had to rip out.

    Kendrick is slow to get up. Eva tries to help him up, but he pulls away, walking away under his own power. Eva seems just as disappointed if not more.

    *Backstage Area*

    We see Paige in the locker-room now dressed in street clothes as she is done for the night. Into the frame we see Bayley come in still in her wrestling attire. She has an angry look on her face.

    Bayley


    What was that?

    Paige stops packing her bag and turns to Bayley and she doesn’t seem pleased to be getting called out.

    Paige


    (with attitude)

    Uh…a victory.

    Bayley doesn’t appreciate the attitude.

    Bayley


    That wasn’t very nice what you did to Summer out there. I heard she’s really hurt and could be out of action for a while.

    Paige doesn’t seem to care as she continues to pack some stuff away. Bayley grabs her.

    Bayley


    Are you listening to me?

    Paige pulls herself out of the grip of Bayley.

    Paige


    Why do you care so much about Summer? She attacked you last week.

    Bayley

    While I may not like Summer, I care for her well-being. I don’t wish injury upon anyone, not even my biggest enemy.

    Paige

    Well I’m not you. I don’t care about my enemy’s well-being. I care about winning and staying WWE Women’s Championship.

    (pauses)

    After what I did tonight, I think Emma got that message loud and clear.

    Paige grabs the WWE Women’s Championship and her luggage before brushing past a concerned Bayley. Bayley looks upset at her friend as Raw goes to commercial break.

    *Commercial Break*

    We come back to a promotional graphic on the screen for Survivor Series with “Ready For War (Pray For Peace)” by Adelitas Way playing in the background.

    Phillips


    We want to thank Adelitas Way for their song “Ready For War (Pray For Peace)”, the official theme song for Survivor Series.

    JBL

    Survivor Series is going to be a war zone, that’s for sure.

    *Here To Show The World*

    The crowd roars with excitement as “The Show-Off” appears with a smile on his face. Atop the ramp he turns with his back facing the crowd and does a little wiggle with his hips before turning back around.

    JoJo


    This match is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first from Hollywood, Florida weighing two hundred and eighteen pounds….Dolph Zigggglerrrr!

    Phillips

    Speaking of war for the last few weeks that has been the feeling between Raw and Smackdown Live superstars, seems like locker-rooms are divided. The focus point of it has been John Cena.

    JBL

    No it hasn’t! John Cena is the casuality of the war. This all started when when Alex Maverick didn’t give Kevin Owens or Roman Reigns the recognition they deserve. They finally did something about it.

    Phillips

    And others have joined their crusade including Raw superstars Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, both of whom have had problems with John Cena in the past.

    JBL

    However, John has allies, Dolph Ziggler being one of them.

    Phillips

    Along with Apollo Crews, Zack Ryder and Neville all Smackdown Live superstars.

    *Fight*

    Well speaking of Kevin Owens we see KO with Roman Reigns by his side and the crowd greets them with boos. Owens has a microphone in hand as his music quickly dies down.

    Owens


    There would be nothing more satisfying than me kicking you ass all over that ring after what you did to me on Smackdown Live.

    Phillips

    Who knows how true that it.

    JBL

    Shut up Tom!

    Owens

    However after consulting with my agent I’m not contractionally obligated to compete on Raw.

    The crowd boos as Owens nods.

    Owens


    I know you all came to see me compete tonight. However, I found your opponent for tonight.

    *Superhuman*

    The arena goes pitch black and four white circles appear atop the ramp. As Baron Corbin walks out touching each one it turns red. At the fourth one the arena goes black one more second before the entire ramp lights up with white bright light. Corbin nods at Owens and Reigns before making his way down to the ramp. He is followed by Reigns and Owens.

    Phillips


    We found out earlier tonight that it will be Team Cena verse Team Owens. We mentioned all the members of Team Cena and as of right now Team Owens is short one member. We heard Owens earlier say if Corbin wins tonight he’s on the team.

    JBL

    What an opportunity for the Lone Wolf! Imagine him being on this star-studded Team Owens? Team Cena would stand no chance.

    Match 4: Dolph Ziggler vs. Baron Corbin w/Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns

    Match Summary: Two superstars who are no strangers to each other thanks to their battles before the WWE Draft, do battle once again. Ziggler started off quickly and looked to hit his signature jumping DDT, but Corbin would counter literally picking him up and tossing him front first. Ziggler lands chest first and favors it as he stands up leaning up against the ropes. From there Corbin would nail Ziggler with clothesline that sends him up and over the top rope. Ziggler lands right in front of Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns. The referee backs them off for a moment however the former Andre the Giant Battle Royal winner would distract the ref as Roman and Kevin would grab Ziggler by his hair. Before they can inflict any damage the referee turns around. They try to drop the evidence, but it is too late. He points to both men and TOSSES THEM OUT. “WHATTTT?” screams Owens as all three heels are clearly angry by the referee’s decision. The crowd cheers as nearby fans can be heard singing “hey hey hey goodbye”. We see an angry Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens make their way up the ramp as Raw goes to a commercial break.

    *Commercial Break*

    Back from commercial break the Lone Wolf is still in the driver’s seat as he has a bear-hug locked in on the Show-Off in the center of the ring. Ziggler tries to desperately reach out for a rope, but the bigger and stronger Corbin wrenches in more pressure to the back of Ziggler. The crowd begins to clap for Ziggler as he is able to gain some space and starts to deliver punches to the face of Corbin which realeases the bear hug. Ziggler charges and Corbin counters with the DEEP SIX. WHAT IMPACT HE SHOOTS THE HALF…only gets a two count! Corbin quickly gets on top of Ziggler and the former Golden Gloves champion begins to deliver punches. Dolph tries his best to cover up and finally after a four count Corbin rolls off his opponent. Corbin taunts the crowd before going over to his opponent who catches him off guard rolling him up for a pin but only getting a two count.

    Both men are up and Corbin goes for a wild clothesline that Ziggler ducks under. Baron turns right back around and this time Ziggler hits the JUMPING DDT. Both men are down and the referee begins to count. Both men are up and exchanging punches. Again Corbin goes for a clothesline and again Ziggler avoids it running towards the ropes and knocking down Corbin with a jumping clothesline of his own. Corbin is up but gets a kick to the gut which is followed by the Fame-Asser. He turns Corbin on his back and gets a two count on his pin. Ziggler is rolling as he stands tall in the corner and begins to tune up the band. Corbin slowly gets back up as ZIGGLER GOES FOR A SUPER-KICK BUT HE’S CAUGHT. CORBIN SPINS HIM AROUND AND GOES FOR A BACK SUPLEX BUT ZIGGLER FLIPS OVER LANDING ON HIS FEET….ZIG-ZAG! Ziggler lands the Zig-Zag and goes for the pin getting the three count!

    Winner: Dolph Ziggler

    Phillips

    Dolph Ziggler gets the victory!

    JBL

    No! That wasn’t supposed to happen! Baron Corbin was supposed to win, join Team Owens! What is Kevin Owens going to do now?

    As Dolph is getting his arms raised by the referee from behind by Tye Dillinger. The crowd begins to chant “Ten” over and over again as the Perfect Ten is stomping away on Ziggler who was just involved in a physical match-up. Dillinger then lifts up Ziggler and hits him with the TYE-BREAKER! The crowd boos as Dillinger does his Ten Taunt which again gets the crowd chanting “ten” before his music hits.

    Phillips


    Ziggler may have new enemies in Team Owens, but clearly things are not over with his old enemy Tye Dillinger.

    *Backstage Area*

    For the first time tonight backstage interviewer Renee Young is seen. She smiles at the camera.

    Young


    Please welcome my guests at this time Jack Swagger and Cesaro.

    The crowd cheers as the newly reformed Real Americans appear. Both smile at Renee as she begins the interview.

    Young


    Tonight you guys are looking to capture tag team gold, titles you failed to capture the first time around when you guys tagged a few years ago. How do you guys make sure you capture them this time around?

    Cesaro

    Jack and I both agree that we’ve gotten a lot better in the ring compared to a few years ago. Also as a team we communicate much better than we did our first time around. We proved that last week knocking off the Revival and momentum is on our side.

    Swagger

    However, we can’t take them lightly especially with their titles on the line. They proved down in NXT and here in the WWE they are the real deal. They are the definition of the new era here in the WWE.

    Cesaro

    But sometimes old works better than new and we prove that tonight we prove that when we capture the WWE Tag Team Championships.

    The crowd cheers as Swagger and Cesaro leave the interview area as Raw goes to a commercial break.

    *Commercial Break*

    We see a clearly frustrated Baron Corbin walking through the backstage area holding the back of his head. Sweat is dripping off him and he is breathing heavy. His hair blocks his view and he flips it up and over his head. His eyes widen as the camera pans out as we see Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns talking with Tye Dillinger. It is unknown what the trio is talking about but after a few words the two Smackdown Live superstars shake hands with the Perfect Ten which gets a negative reaction from the crowd.

    *Announce Table*


    Phillips

    Well Baron Corbin might not be the fifth member of Team Owens, but they may have found their man.

    JBL

    Tye Dillinger got the job done tonight after Corbin failed to do so.

    A graphic then appears for Raw Talk with Renee Young and Nick Kennedy on one side. On the otherside we see Bayley, Chris Jericho, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose.

    Phillips


    Just a reminder after Raw tonight stay tuned for Raw Talk featuring Bayley who picked up a win tonight, the WWE Champion Chris Jericho and the two Raw members of Team Owens, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.

    JBL

    I can’t wait to tune into that. I’m sure Rollins and Ambrose will have plenty to say now that a match has been made official at Survivor Series.

    *You Can Look (But You Can't Touch)*

    Nikki Bella comes out with a little pep in her step before she does her signature twirl atop the ramp which features cheers from the crowd.

    JoJo


    This match is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first from Scottsdale, Arizona…Nikkkki Bella!

    Phillips

    Nikki Bella in action tonight for the first time since her lost at No Mercy.

    JBL

    It was her first big match fight and she came up just short. It’s not easy returning from injury.

    Phillips

    It’s not. She has not given up though, looking to get back on the right track tonight.

    *Tropical Storm*

    The muscle of the women’s division Tamina appears to some boos from the crowd. She pays them no mind as she walks down the ramp.

    JoJo

    Her opponent from The Pacific Islands…Tamina!

    JBL

    Tamina, the daughter of Hall of Famer Jimmy Snuka will be looking to get a victory as well.

    Phillips

    The women’s division is more competitive than ever. These two will showcase that tonight. This should be a good match.

    Match 5: Nikki Bella vs. Tamina

    Match Summary: As alluded to these two girls are part of the much more competitive women’s division. Tamina with her powerhouse style looks to flatten the former women’s champion early on in this match-up. She does multiple powerful suplexs (back, backbreaker, exploder suplex) and yet Nikki is able to muster up enough energy to kickout of every pin after each devastating suplex. Tamina looks to end the match by going to the top rope. She attempts the Samoan Splash but gets nothing but ring canvass, much to the delight of the crowd.

    Both women slowly get back up before the ten count. Nikki gets the offense in first as she knocks down Tamina with a dropkick. Tamina is back up and is once again knocked down by a dropkick. To Tamina’s credit she’s back up once again rather quickly. Nikki ducks under a clothesline before springboarding off the ropes and hitting Tamina with a springboard roundhouse kick that can be heard throughout the arena. She shoots the half and gets a two count. Nikki is on a roll as she waits for Tamina to get back up. Tamina is favoring her jaw as replay’s show she took all off that kick. Tamina gets back up on her feet as Nikki hoists her up on her shoulders in a Fireman Carry position. Tamina delivers a few elbows releasing the hold before connecting with a Big Boot.

    Tamina falls on top of Nikki for the pin and gets a two count that was so close to a three. Tamina seems shocked as she thought she got all of that one. Tamina’s frustration shows as she goes over to the referee and the two exchange some words, mostly coming from Tamina’s side. She goes back towards Nikki WHO ROLLS HER UP AND GETS THE THREE COUNT VICTORY!

    Winner: Nikki Bella

    Nikki rolls out of the ring before Tamina could grab her. Nikki scurries up the ramp as Tamina is seething. She looks at the referee and starts to blame him for her lost.

    Phillips


    I have never seen Tamina so heated.

    JBL

    Of course she is! She had Nikki right where she wanted her and out of nowhere found her shoulders pinned to the mat for a three count.

    Phillips

    The slight hesitation and discussion with the referee cost her, giving Nikki Bella the win.

    JBL

    It was a much needed win for Nikki.

    Cameras show Tamina inside the ring still having words with the ref, while Nikki is atop the ramp with her arms raised in victory.

    *Backstage Area*

    We see the two teams for tonight’s main event walking towards the gorilla position. The team of Jack Swagger and Cesaro on the left with the tag team champions The Revival on the right.

    Phillips


    We heard from Cesaro and Jack Swagger earlier. They said momentum is on their side after last week’s victory. With that said can lightning strike twice? Will we have new WWE Tag Team Champions? We’ll find out next.

    *Commercial Break*

    *Patriot*

    Jack Swagger stands atop the ramp places his hand over his heart and screams “We The People” which echoes throughout the arena as the crowd also screams it.

    *Swiss Made*

    The ringing alarms hit the arena as the crowd goes wild as Cesaro makes his way out from behind the curtains coming out in the 007 entrance. He has a smile on his face as he does his machine gun taunt atop the ramp before tearing off the suit.

    JoJo


    This match is scheduled for one fall and it is for the WWE Tag Team Championship! Introducing first….the team of Jack Swagger and CESSSARROOOOOO!

    The camera shows a bunch of Cesaro section signs.

    Phillips


    The Cesaro section and so are we. It is main event time here on Monday Night Raw as Jack Swagger and Cesaro will be looking to be crowned new WWE Tag Team Champions.

    *Southern Proud*

    The Revival appear standing tall atop the ramp taunting the crowd who shows their hate for this team. They take off their titles and clink them atop the ramp before heading down to the ring.

    JoJo


    Their opponents….they are the current WWE Tag Team Champions…Scott Dawson…Dash Wilder…The Revival!

    JBL

    Well I hate to break it to the Cesaro Section, but the Top Guys will still walk out champions here tonight. They don’t call them Top Guys for no reason.

    Phillips

    You can’t ignore that Swagger and Cesaro hold one victory over The Revival.

    JBL

    That was a fluke! When its crunch time these guys always perform and always come out on top.

    Main Event: Jack Swagger/Cesaro vs. The Revival

    Match Summary: In the early going Jack Swagger was able to lock in the Patriot Lock on Scott Dawson, but luckily for Dawson his partner was on the outside to drag him out of harms way. Since the early scare the champions are able to gain the upperhand and take it to the two time All-Americans. They may be a part of the new era, however they are performing like a throwback tag team. Quick tags and they are keeping Swagger down on the mat, wearing down the big guy. The All-American, American gets a little opening after hitting Wilder with a back body drop. He crawls over to his corner but running all away around the ring is Dawson who pulls Cesaro off the apron as Swagger is unable to make a tag! Wilder from behind then delivers a huge clothesline that nearly takes the All-American’s head off. With that Raw goes to commercial break.

    *Commercial Break*

    Back from the commercial break Wilder hits Swagger with a drop toe-hold while Dawson hits Swagger with an elbow drop to the back. Dawson immediately goes for a pin and gets a two count. Dawson quickly locks in a half-nelson submission on Swagger. We see Cesaro with a worried look on his face. Swagger has been in the ring for a long time and the odds are not in the challenger’s favor right now. The crowd is trying to get behind the All-American who slowly works himself back up to a verical base. With his one loose arm he delivers a few punches to the gut. Dawson comes back with a knee to the abdomen. He then bounces himself off the ropes and gets a big boot that sends him stumbling back into the ropes. HE BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES AND RIGHT INTO A DESPERATION BELLY TO BELLY FROM SWAGGER! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN! CAN A WORN DOWN JACK SWAGGER MAKE THE TAG?!?!

    TAG AND WILDER IS IN AND HERE COMES CESARO WHO IS TAGGED IN AS WELL WITH A DIVING CROSS-BODY. To his credit Wilder is quickly up but a back body drop sends him back down to the mat. He holds his back as he stumbles into the corner. Cesaro like a bullet flies into the corner sending a tooth or spit flying out of Wilder’s mouth as he connects with a devastating European Uppercut. Wilder is out cold and Cesaro can go for a pin, but there is Dawson entering the battle. He delivers a few right hands and whips The Swiss Superman into the ropes. Cesaro comes back to Dawson with his head down and Cesaro delivers a straight kick to the chest. Dawson yells out in pain as Cesaro knocks him down with a clothesline. He grabs Dawson by the head and tosses him over the top rope. The minor distraction from Dawson allows his partner to go for the school-boy pin and A HANDFUL OF TIGHTS.

    1

    2

    NO! Cesaro kickout at two and three-quarters. Wow! Both men are up and Wilder goes for a dropkick which is caught by Cesaro. The crowd gets on their feet as Cesaro has Wilder in the center of the ring. The King of Swing is now swinging Wilder round and round and this could lead to them swinging their way to the tag team championships. After the crowd’s count of ten, Cesaro steps through and locks in the SHARPSHOOTER. Wilder is in the center of the ring, Dawson is nowhere in sight! Wilder tries to crawl towards the ropes, but the Swiss Superman drags him away! NEW TAG CHAMPS?!?! THE CROWD IS BOOING?!?! WHY?!?!?!

    BOOM! UNITED STATES TITLE TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! Cesaro releases the hold and falls to the mat as the bell rings. We see The Miz and his fellow A-Listers, Alberto Del Rio and Tyler Breeze. Miz is barking orders as Del Rio and Breeze carry out those orders, stomping away on Cesaro!

    Winners: Jack Swagger & Cesaro by DQ

    The crowd continues to boo as the assault of Cesaro continues. Miz just stands back with his wife as Prince Pretty and El Presidente work over the former number one contender to The Miz’s championship. Miz then hands his United States Championship to his wife while Breeze and Del Rio get Cesaro up to a vertical base. They hold him up as Miz delivers a big boot to the face. Cesaro falls and Miz goes to celebrate AND HERE COMES SWAGGER CHARGING IN ON THE CHAMPION…HE’S CUT OFF BY DEL RIO AND BREEZE. He tries to fight them off delivering wild punches, hitting anything that moves but the number game (and fatigue) gets to the All-American American. Like his partner he stands no chance and feels a worse faith than Cesaro. This time Breeze and Del Rio stand him up only for the United States Champion to deliver a SKULL CRUSHING FINALE! The Revival join the A-Listers inside the ring. Miz looks at both of them as Maryse comes in with all three titles. She goes to hand the tag titles first but Miz takes them instead. The crowd is buzzing as The Revival seem confused and tense up as they think another fight is about to break up.

    A serious Miz turns into a smiling Miz as he hands them their titles and hugs the both of them, much to the dismay of the crowd. Miz then grabs his title as Del Rio and Breeze shake hands with their new allies. It seems like the A-Listers may have a few country boys by their side. The five superstars and Maryse stand tall in the center of the ring and raise their hands in victory as we say goodnight from Sin City!

    Raw Talk

    “Light Up The Sky” by Thousand Foot Krutch plays as we see Renee Young and the Raw General Manager seated on each end of the Raw Talk table. The camera zooms in on Renee who welcomes the audience with a smile.

    Young


    As Halloween draws to a close tonight was certainly not a treat for the number one contenders to the WWE Tag Team titles as we just saw.

    (pauses)

    I’m Renee Young and alongside me is Nick Kennedy and I can say as we were watching that unfold, you seemed disappointed.

    Kennedy

    (sighs)

    Very disappointed! I thought tonight we were going to have new tag team champions. Once again The Miz and his goons stick their nose in something that has nothing to do with them.

    (pauses)

    Not only that… The Revival are a great tag team that’s why I drafted them to the main roster. They don’t need outside help.

    Young

    Well they did lose last week to Swagger and Cesaro.

    Kennedy

    They did but when it comes to big time matches these guys usually come out on top. I’ve learned never to bet against those guys.

    Young

    Speaking of tag teams tonight we saw plenty of tag team action New Day picked up another win against The Vaudevillians.

    Kennedy nods.

    Young


    We also saw tag action in the women’s division. Your girlfriend tagged with Summer Rae and lost against her Survivor Series opponent and WWE Women’s Champion Paige and her tag partner Bayley.

    Kennedy

    Yes Paige has some momentum now, but Emma is still focused on the task at hand. I’m sure at Survivor Series we will see one hell of a match.

    Young

    Also we learned that Summer Rae suffered an injury.

    Kennedy

    Yes a minor back injury. She will be out until further notice.

    Young

    Yes everyone here in the WWE wishes Summer Rae a speedy recovery…

    (pauses and points off screen)

    …especially this girl right here.

    Bayley appears not in her normal happy mood. She grabs a microphone and takes a seat to the far right of the Raw Talk table.

    Bayley


    Yes, what happened to Summer tonight…

    (sighs)

    …no one likes to see that, enemy or not. Summer if you’re listening can’t wait to see you back in the ring.

    Young

    We saw you earlier confront Paige and there seemed to be tension.

    Bayley

    I wouldn’t call it tension, just us not us seeing eye to eye.

    Young
    Paige said she doesn’t care about the enemy’s well-being. She cares about winning and championships.

    (looks at Kennedy)


    Are you worried about your girlfriend’s well-being?

    Kennedy

    Of course! Especially since she is just a few months removed from a major injury. However, she’s a grown women and a professional. I have to give her space for her to accomplish her goals.

    (turns to Bayley)

    You were just in the ring with Paige as her opponent you made it out okay…

    (pauses)

    …except where you lost.

    Bayley

    I was but this is a completely different Paige. Since Emma was named number one contender she has gotten more aggressive. You saw me literally pry her off of Summer right?

    The Raw GM nods.

    Bayley


    She has fire in her eyes. She’ll do anything to retain the WWE Women’s Championship.

    Kennedy

    I’m going to play devil’s advocate for a second. As I said I don’t wish injury upon anyone, but I’m with Paige here.

    Renee laughs.

    Young


    Looks like someone will be sleeping alone on the couch.

    Kennedy

    Hear me out…Bayley said this is a completely different Paige, I remember last year at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn we saw a completely different Sasha Banks, who is a friend of yours take her foot and repeatedly stomp on your hand with such force. I thought she broke your hand. You walked out victorious and you guys hugged it out after the match.

    Bayley

    The key is Sasha and I are longtime friends. Paige and Emma are not.

    Young

    They’re far from it.

    Kennedy

    I’m just saying they both have that killer instinct and are willing to be a little bit more vicious in the ring. I applaud that.

    Bayley

    I know you’re the boss around here Nick, but I respectfully disagree. I can’t condone going out there and purposely hurting someone.

    Kennedy shrugs.

    Kennedy


    Well maybe if you did you would be champion right now instead of Paige.

    Bayley seems taken back as Young’s jaw slightly drops.

    Young


    (softly)

    Whoa….

    Kennedy

    I’m just saying you lack the killer instinct Bayley. I love that you stay true to who you are, but in a division with the likes of Paige, Emma, Nikki Bella, and Tamina these women take girls like you and will eat you alive.

    Bayley seems flabbergasted. She tries to laugh it off.

    Bayley


    Tell me how you really feel…

    Kennedy

    You’re basically a fish in a shark tank full of sharks.

    Bayley

    Well on that note…

    She starts to stand and doesn’t look none too please with her boss.

    Bayley


    (off-mic)

    This fish is swimming away. Good night.

    Bayley quickly gets off set as Renee seems shocked while Kennedy does a simple wave goodbye.

    Young


    That was kind of rude.

    Kennedy

    The truth hurts sometimes Renee.

    Young

    That wasn’t the truth that was an opinion, your opinion.

    Kennedy

    You don’t agree?

    Young

    I don’t and I don’t think the WWE Universe either.

    Kennedy shrugs.

    Kennedy


    I just want to get the best out of our talent.

    Young

    Well speaking of best…our next guess is the self-proclaimed Best in the World. He is the current WWE Champion Chris Jericho.

    Into the frame appears a sharply dressed Chris Jericho with title in hand. He looks at Kennedy and looks confused.

    Jericho


    I thought Steph was going to be on this show?

    Kennedy

    Nope…just me.

    Jericho

    (rolls his eyes)

    Just a stupid idiot!

    Young

    Um…Chris thanks for joining us.

    Jericho

    Thank you for finally having me. I’m the Best in the World and this is the first time you’re having me. That is outrageous. The people want Chris Jericho….drink it in maaannnnnn.

    Kennedy

    I will pass!

    Young

    As will I.

    Jericho doesn’t look too pleased.

    Kennedy


    But I will ask you a question…if you are the so called “Best in the World” why did you run from Randy Orton?

    Jericho

    Run?

    Kennedy nods.

    Jericho


    You call that running?

    Young

    Well you did exit the ring just as he was entering.

    Jericho

    For someone who claims to be a huge ring wrestling fan you obviously don’t understand the psyche behind it.

    Kennedy

    Come again?

    Jericho

    I have Randy Orton reeling after what happened last week. He’s no longer the predator. He is the prey.

    (pauses)

    That bothers him. He always has to be the man on top of the food chain. He did it when he was a part of Legacy, he tried to do it in Evolution, and luckily they kicked him out before he had the opportunity to turn on them.

    Young

    Well in less than three week he may be on the top of the food chain if he defeats you.

    Jericho

    Not if I hit him with another Codebreaker outta nowhere.

    Jericho chuckles and smiles before jabbing Kennedy in the ribs.

    Jericho


    You like that? I know you do.

    Kennedy swivels his chair a few inches away.

    Kennedy


    Actually I don’t. I’ve had enough of these sneak attacks.

    (looks at Jericho)

    That is why until Survivor Series you and Randy Orton are to stay away from each other.

    Jericho

    What?

    Jericho

    If you touch him you will be stripped of your title. If he touches you, he will be stripped of his number one contendership.

    Jericho seems slightly angry by the decision.

    Kennedy


    HOWEVER….next week both of you will be in singles action. You have an opportunity to pick anyone on the Raw roster to verse him and vice-versa.

    Jericho ponders the words of the Raw GM.

    Jericho


    Ya’ know maybe you’re not a stupid idiot after all. You’re just an idiot.

    Young

    (sarcastically)

    Oh…that’s not bad.

    Kennedy gives Renee a look as Jericho stands from his chair and puts out his hand for Kennedy to shake. The Raw GM goes to shake the champ’s hand but he moves it and laughs.

    Jericho


    Nope! You’re still a stupid idiot.

    Y2J leaves as Renee laughs.

    Young


    Well that was short-lived.

    Kennedy

    Being called a stupid idiot by a future Hall of Famer isn’t the worse thing in the world.

    Young

    You mentioned sneak attacks, your alluding to the sneak attacks we have seen from Kevin Owens.

    Kennedy

    Yes, this is why Alex Maverick and I made the match for Survivor Series.

    Young

    What an announcement that was! WWE Universe has been reacting on social media all night. They’re very excited to see Kevin Owens possibly be put in his place.

    Kennedy

    Well it was supposed to possibly happen tonight, but of course Owens found a way to get himself out of that one. However, we are trying to rectify that immediately.

    Young

    So contract changes are coming.

    Kennedy

    Yes! You will see Kevin Owens wrestle inside a Raw ring very, very, soon.

    ???

    What about us? Will we be featured in a Raw ring soon?

    Slowly walking into the frame appears a pissed off Seth Rollins, followed by Dean Ambrose who seems more focused on the set-up of the Raw Talk set. He’s touching microphones and cameras all over.

    Young


    Please welcome Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, two members of Team Owens.

    Dean Ambrose looks at Renee and winks which causes Renee to roll her eyes. Kennedy immediately focuses on Rollins who is waiting for a response.

    Kennedy


    I don’t know…are you going to prove to me, you’re worth my time and the WWE Universe’s time?

    Rollins

    After what I saw tonight it won’t be hard to do that. It was a horrible show, don’t you agree Dean?

    Rollins turns and looks at the Lunatic.

    Ambrose


    It was.

    Rollins

    Tonight’s show was awful. How could you not feature the first overall pick for the second straight week? That’s like benching LeBron James for Darko Milicic. You just don’t do that.

    Kennedy

    Seth I have given you plenty of opportunities. Unlike The Revival I would bet against you in a big time spot.

    Seth shakes his head in frustration.

    Rollins


    Kevin was right we shouldn’t have done this stupid show. It’s like talking to a wall.

    Rollins goes to storm off and leave. Ambrose then gets up and gets only a few feet from the Raw GM. He hovers over him and then leans over.

    Ambrose


    Listen…you’re a smart man…right?

    Out of fear Kennedy nods.

    Ambrose


    Seth and I are upset this week. Last week we we’re angry. If we don’t get a match again next week, we’ll be angry. You won’t like us when we’re angry. I tend to do crazy things when I’m angry. You get what I’m saying?

    Kennedy nods as Ambrose scary ambiance goes away as he smiles and playfull slaps Kennedy on the cheek.

    Ambrose


    I look forward to Raw next week…

    Ambrose goes to join Rollins who is practically off the studio set.

    Young


    Just one question…

    They turn to face Renee.

    Young


    Is Tye Dillinger the fifth member of Team Owens?

    Dean and Seth look at each other for a few moments.

    Rollins


    Guess you’ll just have to tune into Smackdown to find out.

    With that the two members of the reformed Shield walk off the set.

    Young


    And on that note that’s all the time we have here on Raw Talk.

    (turns to Kennedy)

    You okay?

    Kennedy

    It’s not truly Halloween unless your scared…ain’t that right?

    He tries to laugh it off but you can tell he’s a little worried with sweat dropping down his face.

    Young


    From Las Vegas good night and Happy Halloween.

    Re: Amrocky25 & RatedR31 Presents WWE: We Are The WWE Universe

    Smackdown – 11/01/16

    PRUDENTIAL CENTER

    NEWARK, NJWWE “Then, Now, Forever” opening video plays.
    **Recap of Last Week’s Smackdown**

    We see AJ Styles, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson in the ring with serious looks on their faces.

    Styles

    Ever since the draft, Bray Wyatt and his family have terrorized everyone in his path of trying to become the World Heavyweight Champion. He calls himself an all-powerful being, but the way I see it is he's nothing more than a coward! You talk about how dangerous you are and there's no doubt that you are. But you're now dealing with the pissed off members of the "Kick Bray Wyatt's Ass Club!" So no more sneak attacks. No more light tricks. Get out here and face us like men!

    Just then, the WYATT INTERRUPTION VIDEO PLAYS! We see Bray Wyatt on the screen with the rest of the Wyatt Family behind him.

    Wyatt

    Club... I admire your courage. But see while you stand out there trying to portray confidence I see a slight tremble in your stance...

    Wyatt uses two fingers to point to his eyes and out at the camera.

    I see fear in your eyes. You're standing up for your honor, but history will repeat itself... Because just like last week, you three will fall. But this time... we will make sure you don't get back up. AJ Styles... you want me to face you like a man... well know that I am not a man...

    Wyatt puts out his arms, looks up and then back down again.

    I am a God! You and the Club can shoot all bullets you want at me, but nothing can stop me! I will take the "great power" from you... and I will enjoy burning your Club house to the ground in the process.

    Wyatt stares into the camera as he had an evil smirk on his face. Back in the ring Styles is looking up at the screen still with an intense look as he holds up the World Title.

    Styles

    You want this title so badly? Then come out here face to face, man to "god" and take it from me. Or are you too much of a bitch to do that?!

    Wyatt's eyes widen and he gets a pissed off, evil look on his face.

    Wyatt

    Be careful what you wish for!

    The Wyatt interruption video plays and the lights go out. The Wyatt interruption video plays again and the lights come back on. We see the Wyatt Family down at the bottom of the ramp. The Wyatt Family get onto the apron and stare down The Club, who are back to back and ready to fight. The Wyatts get in the ring and both teams go right after each other. Wyatt and Styles are brawling with such high intensity as Harper and Anderson go at it and Strowman and Rowan double team Gallows, who tries to fend them off.

    Ranallo

    HERE WE GO! THE FIGHT IS ON!

    The numbers game catches up with the Club and the Wyatt Family takes control on the battle.

    Graves

    Yeah but just like we thought, the numbers games are catching up to The Club. You can’t take down a dangerous group like the Wyatts down a man.

    Just then, "Catch Your Breath" plays. Wyatt immediately turns towards the stage as does the crowd. FINN BALOR comes out and runs down the ramp as the crowd is on their feet and going crazy!

    Ranallo

    FINN BALOR! FINN BALOR HAS COME TO HELP THE CLUB!

    Harper comes out to meet Balor at the end of the ramp, but Balor with a full head of steam runs right towards him and delivers a forceful DROPKICK, sending Harper back hard into the apron! Balor gets up on the apron. Strowman comes over towards him, but Balor delivers a JUMPING SIDE KICK to the big man, causing him to stumble backwards. Balor gets into the ring and runs at Rowan, hitting him with the SLINGBLADE! Balor gets up and is face to face with Wyatt. The two stare down as the crowd chants "Finn!" loudly. Wyatt puts his arms out, begging Balor to hit him. Just as Balor looks like he's about to strike, Strowman runs at him, but Balor ducks Strowman's attack and connects with the PELE KICK sending Strowman stumbling backwards against the ropes. Gallows and Anderson get up and DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE Strowman over the top rope and to the floor right next to Harper and Rowan. Wyatt is about to grab Balor, but Styles gets up and turns Wyatt around, laying in a flurry punches and forearms as the crowd cheers loudly. Wyatt shoves Styles off of him, but Styles Dropkicks Wyatt down and causes him to roll out of the ring, right by the rest of the Wyatt Family. The crowd is going crazy as the four men in the ring are pumped up and taunting for the Wyatts to come back in the ring. Rowan checks on Wyatt as Harper and Strowman look to get onto the apron to keep fighting, but Wyatt gets up and pulls his men back. He pushes them a bit and orders them to back up the ramp. We can hear Wyatt yell at them "Another time!"

    Ranallo

    Bray Wyatt pulling back his family and said they’ll get them another time.

    Graves

    I never thought I’d see the day where the Wyatt Family is retreating.

    Balor turns towards the Club. The crowd is cheering as Balor looks out at them. Balor then holds up the "too sweet" sign up high towards the three men as the crowd cheers loudly. Gallows and Anderson look at each other, smile and hold up the "too sweet" sign by Balor's. They look at Styles, who looks out at the crowd chanting "YES!" Styles smiles at Balor and Balor smiles back at him. Styles holds up the "too sweet" sign with the rest of them and the crowd erupts!

    Ranallo

    THE CLUB IS AT FULL STRENGTH NOW!

    Graves

    They got their wish and the original leader of The Club is back in!

    Ranallo

    A night where we thought The Club could’ve been taken out for good ended with them standing tall and now with four members! There’s no other words to describe this moment than simply TOO SWEET!

    **End Smackdown Recap**
    “Back From The Dead” by Skillet plays as the Smackdown opening video plays.

    Pyro goes off in the arena and the fans are all on their feet cheering and going crazy.

    Ranallo

    Welcome ladies and gentlemen to Smackdown! We are here live in Newark, NJ. I’m Mauro Ranallo, joined as always by my broadcast partner Corey Graves. Are you ready for tonight Corey?

    Graves

    I’m not too happy about being in this garbage place you call New Jersey, but I’ll push through it for tonight since we have a great night.

    Ranallo

    And what a way to kick things off than with a huge announcement from our General Manager and Commissioner, who are in the ring now!

    We cut to the ring where we see Alex Maverick and Shane McMahon already in the ring.

    McMahon

    What's up New Jersey?!

    The crowd cheers!

    Welcome to Smackdown! And what better way to kick things off than with a huge announcement?

    Maverick

    That's right Shane. But before we do that, we'd like to bring a few people out here.

    Maverick motions towards the stage.

    So ladies and gentlemen, please give it up for the first time in WWE, the fully reformed group, THE CLUB!

    “Phenomenal” plays and the crowd is on their feet as AJ Styles, Finn Balor, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson make their way out onto the stage, holding the “too sweet” sign up before making their way down the ramp.

    Ranallo

    Here comes The Club and with a new yet familiar face joining them.

    Graves

    That’s right. We saw last week Finn Balor, the original leader of The Club helping them out in their battle against The Wyatt Family. And I have to say, he proved to be the difference maker.

    Ranallo

    It’s finally a fair fight as the numbers are even now with the addition of the Intercontinental Champion.

    The Club gets into the ring and greets Maverick and McMahon.

    McMahon

    And at this time, if they will join us, we'd like to also invite out the WYATT FAMILY!

    Everyone waits for a few seconds to see if the Wyatts will come out. Just then, the WYATT INTERRUPTION VIDEO PLAYS AND THE LIGHTS GO OUT! The Wyatt interruption video plays again and the Wyatt Family is on the stage with a spotlight on them.

    Maverick

    OK now that everyone is here, we can make our announcement.

    McMahon

    Now for the last few weeks, you two groups have gone at it, leading up to last week where we saw an all-out battle. Now we can see that you guys have disdain for one another and this needs to be settled once and for all.

    Maverick

    And it's not going to be in some random attack. It's not going to be in some all-out unsanctioned brawl. We are going to do this right and make it official. Shane and I discussed this and we came up with a great solution.

    McMahon

    Survivor Series has a long history of two groups of people settling their differences. Rivals going head to head in an all-out elimination style match to truly determine who is the better team.

    Maverick

    So at Survivor Series, we will see the final battle in this war. It will be The Club verses the Wyatt Family in a 4 on 4 Traditional Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination Match!

    The crowd cheers loudly for the decision and starts a "YES!" chant. The Club nod their heads, approving of the decision while the Wyatts stand there with sadistic stares on their faces. Wyatt paces a bit as he has a microphone in hand.

    Wyatt

    Club... last week, you were able to recruit an old friend into your crusade. I have to say, I was surprised by that.

    Wyatt looks up at the Club in the ring.

    But Finn Balor... I hope you know that you've made the biggest mistake of your career.

    Wyatt points at Balor.

    You've stepped onto a battlefield that you had nothing to do with.

    Wyatt clutches his hand with the glove on it and looks down at it in an evil and creepy way.

    So now, just like the rest of them, you will be trapped inside the burning clubhouse and dragged down to your own eternal hell! Club, at Survivor Series...

    Wyatt pauses and stares right at The Club.

    You will fall!

    The Club stares down the Wyatts with serious faces as they can't wait for Survivor Series. Wyatt paces a bit again.

    Now while my family and I will take great pleasure in tearing down the Club...

    Wyatt stops, looks up and points at Maverick and McMahon.

    We have an issue. You see... what you gave me is not what I desire. What I desire, and what I've desired all along is the “great power.”

    Wyatt paces a bit.

    In fact, this all started with my desire to claim the “great power.” I never wanted this.

    Wyatt points to the Club.

    They are the reason this war among my family and their so called brotherhood got to this point.

    The Club seems insulted by that comment.

    Styles

    So called brotherhood?

    Styles points to the rest of The Club.

    These three are my brothers. They're good brothers. We've traveled the world together. We've been as close as you can possibly be. So you're damn right that when you started attacking me that my brothers weren't going to sit back and allow that to happen.

    The crowd cheers as Style pauses.

    They will always have my back and not because they're brainwashed like your mindless monsters up there behind you.

    Harper has a crazy look in his eyes, Rowan grabs at the sheep mask on his face, and Strowman looks a bit angry and goes to step forward, but Wyatt stops him immediately.

    But because they care for me.

    Balor

    That's right. Bray, you said I made the biggest mistake of my life joining this war. But the way I see it is now the sides are even... and you're scared.

    The crowd cheers as Balor pauses.

    You're scared that you can't beat the most dominant group in WWE today when you're not attacking us from behind. If you don't believe me... just look at last week and how you retreated after getting your arses whipped.

    The crowd oohs at the comment. Wyatt doesn't look pleased at all and has an evil look on his face.

    Wyatt

    I will never be scared of you or anyone for that matter. I am the new face of fear. Everyone fears me and that includes each and every one of you in that ring right now.

    The crowd boos heavily as the Club holds serious faces as they stare the Wyatts down.

    I don't need this match because it's not what I ultimately want.

    Wyatt looks at Maverick and McMahon.

    You know what I want. And unless I get it, then destruction will continue to reign over Smackdown. You've been warned!

    The Wyatt interruption video plays and the lights go out. The Wyatt interruption video plays again. The lights come back on and the Wyatts are gone from the stage.

    Ranallo

    Wow. I’m not sure what to say after that.

    Graves

    A huge announcement by Alex Maverick and Shane McMahon about Survivor Series, but clearly not what Bray Wyatt was hoping for. I’m not sure if you just don’t give in after all he’s done and what we know he’s capable of.

    Ranallo

    I guess we’ll see how that goes as we progress tonight. But coming up next, three teams will compete with their own Survivor Series implications on the line as the winner will be the new #1 Contenders to the World Tag Team Titles.

    **Commercial Break**

    We return to ringside as “Lucha Lucha” plays. The Lucha Dragons make their way down the ring, springing each into the ring and doing the “Lucha!” chant with the crowd.

    Hamilton

    The following triple threat tag team match is scheduled for one fall and it is to determine the #1 Contenders to the World Tag Team Championship. Introducing first, at a combined weight of 368 pounds, Kalisto & Sin Cara, the Lucha Dragons.

    Ranallo

    Welcome back to Smackdown as we get set to see three teams from Smackdown compete for the opportunity to take on the World Tag Team Champions, Rusev & Sheamus.

    Graves

    And what an opportunity this is for the Lucha Dragons. After defeating Slater Gator last week, they earned a spot in his match. And Mauro, don’t underestimate the former NXT Tag Team Champions.

    Ranallo

    Some have said Kalisto and Sin Cara have been looked over a bit lately. Well tonight can change all of that.

    “We’re Coming Down” plays. Out comes the Dudley Boyz, who look to be all business and ready to go as the crowd boos them.

    Hamilton

    Their opponents, first, at a combined weight of 549 pounds, Bubba Ray & D-Von, The Dudley Boyz.

    Graves

    Here come the true favorites tonight and my personal pick to win, the 9 time WWE World Tag Team Champions, the Dudley Boyz.

    Ranallo

    The Dudleys certainly have the track record not just here in WWE but all over the world. The Dudleys coming off a big win a few weeks ago against American Alpha and they look to carry that momentum into this match.

    Graves

    There’s no doubt they will and I think we could be looking at the future 10 time tag team champions.

    “SAWFT Is A Sin” plays and out comes Enzo Amore and Big Cass to a loud cheering crowd. Enzo runs around the stage and dances a bit before lifting up his microphone. Enzo looks out to the crowd and the whole crowd says his whole opening with him.

    Enzo

    My name is Enzo Amore, and I am a certified G and a bonafied stud, and you can’t teach that.

    Enzo points at Cass.

    And this right here, this is Big Cass, and he’s seven foot tall, and you can’t teach that.

    Cass

    Off the microphone

    Hit ‘em with it Zo.

    Enzo

    Bada boom, realist guys in the room. How you doin’?!

    The crowd starts chanting “How you doin’!” as Enzo dances.

    Tonight I return home to my home to Jersey!

    The New Jersey crowd cheers loudly.

    And tonight is our first step to bringing back a championship to this great state.

    The hometown crowd cheers again loudly.

    Let’s take a look at our opponents tonight.

    Enzo points to the Lucha Dragons.

    First up we’ve got the Lucha Drgaons, Kalisto and Sin Cara.

    The crowd cheers for them.

    Big Cass and I… we’ve got respect for yous two. But it don’t matter what fancy moves you do tonight. I lived on the Jersey Shore every summer so I know how to deal with a cuppa high flyas if you know what I mean.

    Enzo smirks as the crowd enjoys the pun.

    Cass

    Tonight we put you on the floor and stomp out the flame like a roach.

    The crowd loves it and starts chanting “How You Doin’!” Enzo then points to the Dudleys.

    Enzo

    And then we’ve got the Oldey Boyz.

    The crowd boos as Bubba shoos off the crowd.

    We’ve put you old timers down before and we have no problem sending you right back to your nursing home in Dudleyville across the river.

    The crowd cheers as the Dudleys don’t seem entertained by Enzo.

    Cass

    Tonight, you ain’t lookin’ at no pretendas, cause we’re going to be your new numba one contendas!

    The crowd cheers.

    Cause Lucha Dragons, Dudley Boyz, there’s only one word to describe you and I’m gonna spell it out for ya!

    Cass and Enzo get hyped up as the crowd joins in spelling.

    S…A…W…F…T! SAWFT!

    Ranallo

    Enzo and Cass seem fired up tonight! This could be their opportunity.

    Graves

    This cesspool of a place people call New Jersey is feeding into the mind of a delusional idiot. Of course he’s going to be hyped. I just hope the Dudleys are distracted by the constant smell of garbage that they call air.

    #1 Contendership for World Tag Team Championship

    Dudley Boyz vs. The Lucha Dragons vs. Enzo Amore & Big Cass

    The match is back and forth with all three teams really getting a chance to shine as you can see they all want the title shot. We join towards the end where Enzo and Cass have been taken out on the outside by the Dudleys, but the Lucha Dragons gained control with Kalisto and D-Von being the legal men in the ring. Kalisto hits D-Von with a springboard corkscrew crossbody. Kalisto is feeling it and starts doing the "Lucha!" chant which the crowd starts to get into. Kalisto waits for D-Von to get back to his feet, hooks his arm around D-Von's head and delivers the SALIDA DEL SOL! Kalisto goes right into the cover hooking both legs...1...2...NO! BUBBA BREAKS UP THE COVER! Bubba stomps on Kalisto a few times. Bubba lifts Kalisto up for a Powerbomb, but Kalisto reverses it into a hurricanrana, sending Bubba through the ropes and to the outside. Sin Cara goes to the corner near where Bubba is and jumps off the top rope onto him with a Crossbody! Back in the ring, Kalisto looks again for the Salida Del Sol, but D-Von reverses it and shoves Kalisto into Enzo and Cass' corner. Cass gets back up in the corner and tags himself in before Kalisto stumbles backwards out of the corner. D-Von gathers himself, grabs Kalisto from behind and delivers the REVERSE LIFTING DDT! D-Von is being told from the referee Kalisto isn't the legal man. D-Von gets up and turns around right into a Big Boot from Cass. Cass looks in his corner and sees Enzo back up in the corner. Cass tags him in as Enzo heads to the top rope with the crowd cheering him on. Enzo jumps off with the assistance of Cass and nails the BADDA BOOM SHAKALAKA on D-Von. Enzo hooks the leg for the cover...1...2...3! Enzo & Cass are #1 Contenders!

    Winners: Enzo Amore & Big Cass

    Hamilton

    Here are your winners and the #1 Contenders for the World Tag Team Championship, Enzo Amore and Big Cass!

    Ranallo

    No Corey, it’s not a dream. You’re now looking at the new #1 Contenders, Enzo Amore and Big Cass.

    Graves

    Dream? It’s more like a nightmare. I can’t believe Enzo will get a shot at those prestigious championships. It makes me sick.

    Enzo and Cass celebrate as the crowd is on their feet cheering and chanting “How You Doin’!”

    Ranallo

    Despite my colleague’s distain, at Survivor Series Enzo and Cass will get their shot at the World Tag Team Championships when they take on Rusev and Sheamus.

    Graves

    I hope Rusev and Sheamus kicks Enzo’s head off!

    We cut backstage to the locker room to see Finn Balor tying his boots. He finishes and looks up to see AJ Styles, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson as the crowd pops loud. Balor stands up as they are all smiles.

    Anderson

    Brothers, everything is finally in place. We've got Finn back in The Club...

    Gallows pats Balor on the back.

    And at Survivor Series we've finally got the Wyatts in an official match.

    Gallows

    That's right. No sneak attacks. No hiding. No stupid riddles. Just us four against them four face to face. And in an even face to face fight just like last week, we're going to send them packing back to the swamp they came from.

    Styles

    Bray Wyatt and his family think that they are the most dangerous and closest force there is in WWE. Now there's no denying how dangerous they are. We all know that.

    They all nod in agreement.

    And I guess when you have three mindless drones listening to a false prophet that counts as being close.

    They again nod in agreement but smirk at the comment.

    But no one... NO ONE is closer than The Club is. We've traveled the world together. They call themselves a family but we ARE a family!

    They each nod and pat each other on the backs.

    Balor

    And at Survivor Series we show the Wyatt Family why we were the group that ran Japan... why we were dominating around the world... why we've all been champions...

    Balor picks up his Intercontinental Championship.

    And why we're the most dangerous group in wrestling...

    Balor pauses.

    Period!

    The crowd cheers loudly as The Club smile and get pumped up from the speech.

    And now I'm going to go out there and prove to them just why we are the very best in the world!

    Anderson

    Go get 'em champ!

    The group "too sweet" each other. Balor leaves the locker room with his title as the crowd cheers.

    **Commercial Break**

    We come back backstage to see Enzo Amore and Big Cass walking in the hallway back from the ring, still hyped up from their win.

    Enzo

    #1 Contendas in the house!

    The crowd cheers.

    And just think how great it’s going to be when we take out Lana’s lap dogs at Survivor Series and win those Word Tag Team Championships!

    The two stop as they see someone. Lana, Rusev and Sheamus walk into frame as the crowd boos loudly. Lana stares at Enzo.

    Lana

    You think you two can beat my dominating men?

    Lana looks back at Rusev and Sheamus and all three laugh. Lana turns back to Enzo and Cass.

    You two will be a bigger failure then this New Jersey we’re stuck in.

    The Jersey crowd boos Lana.

    At Survivor Series, Rusev and Sheamus will CRUSH you both like the cockroaches you are.

    Lana motions and her, Rusev and Sheamus leave, standing tall and confident as the crowd boos and Enzo and Cass look on.

    Ranallo

    Lana sending a warning out to the new challengers for her team’s titles.

    Graves

    I couldn’t agree with more. Lana spoke nothing but the truth about Enzo and New Jersey and I can’t wait to see Rusev and Sheamus crush them at Survivor Series.

    “Catch Your Breath” plays. The crowd is on their feet as Finn Balor comes out and taunts with them to his music.

    Hamilton

    Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the Intercontinental Champion, Finn Balor!

    Ranallo

    And here comes the Intercontinental Champion yet again tonight, but this time to continue his crusade to being a workhorse and a fighting champion.

    Graves

    I give Balor credit with these open challenges he’s been doing, but after everything with the Wyatts, especially earlier tonight, I’m not sure if this is the smartest thing right now.

    Ranallo

    Balor is not someone to back down and from what we heard earlier tonight, it doesn’t seem like the Wyatts will make him back down either.

    Balor gets into the ring and grabs a microphone as the crowd cheers and chants “Finn!”

    Balor

    Despite my new-found situation with the Wyatt Family...

    Balor pauses as the crowd boos the Wyatts.

    I will not let them stop me from being a man of my word. I told all of you that I would be a fighting champion and I'm damn sure sticking to that!

    The crowd cheers loudly! Balor turns towards the stage.

    So to anyone who wants to step up to my open challenge...

    Balor holds up the Intercontinental Title.

    Let's do this! Cause I'm in a fighting mood tonight.

    The crowd cheers loud as Balor waits in anticipation for a challenger.

    Ranallo

    Who will step up tonight?

    Just then, THE WYATT INTERRUPTION VIDEO PLAYS! The lights go out in the arena. The Wyatt Interruption video plays again. The lights come back on and Braun Strowman is on the apron, staring down Finn Balor.

    Graves

    OH NO! I told you Mauro that this wasn’t a smart idea tonight!

    Balor looks a bit shocked but shakes it off and motions that he’s up for the challenge.

    Ranallo

    Worst case scenario for Finn Balor, but the champion isn’t backing down.

    Strowman gets into the ring.

    Graves

    He may regret this!

    Intercontinental Championship

    Finn Balor vs. Braun Strowman

    Right as the bell rings, Balor goes right at Strowman and lays in a flurry of punches to the big man as the crowd cheers him on strongly. Strowman though doesn't seem overly affected by them and shoves Balor off of him. Balor goes at Strowman again, but yet again the big man shoves him off. Balor goes to come back at third time but gets met with a Big Boot by Strowman. Strowman lets out a roar as the crowd boos him. Strowman continues with a clubbing Balor in the back and getting him into the corner and laying in some strong forceful strikes. Strowman lifts Balor up and slams him down with a Scoop Slam. Strowman takes his time in punishing Balor. Strowman tosses Balor into the corner. Strowman runs at him, but Balor is able to move out of the way by hoping over the ropes, causing Strowman to go full speed into the corner turnbuckles. Strowman stumbles out a bit and goes by Balor, who's on the apron. Balor jumps up and nails Strowman with a Jumping Roundhouse Kick to the side of the head. Strowman stumbles backwards a bit as Balor is now feeling it. He gets into the ring but sees Strowman shake it off and look to go after him. Strowman runs at Balor at full steam, but Balor pulls down the top rope at the last second, sending Strowman over the top rope and to the outside. Strowman is still on his feet standing next to the apron and looks angry he got outsmarted. Strowman goes to climb up to get back into the ring, but Balor runs off the ropes and hits Strowman with a Basement Dropkick through the ropes, sending Strowman stumbling backwards and trying to keep his balance. The crowd is cheering Balor on as he points the Club gun signal towards Strowman. Balor runs off the ropes again and this time goes for a Suicide Dive to the outside onto Strowman, but STROWMAN CATCHES BALOR! Strowman holds Balor up by under the shoulders for a second and then tosses him back onto the floor hard. Strowman slowly picks up Balor by the head and tosses him into the nearby barricade. At this point, the referee is at a count of 5. Strowman lifts Balor again by the head and slams him again into the barricade. The referee is at a count of 7. Strowman lifts Balor up and yells in his face "YOU WILL FEAR US!" The referee is at a COUNT OF 8 now, but Strowman is ignoring the count. Strowman tosses Balor hard into the STEEL STEPS, causing them to move significantly. The referee reaches A COUNT OF 9. Strowman admires his handy work as Balor lays motionless. The referee reaches a COUNT OF 10 and rings the bell for a DOUBLE COUNT OUT!

    Winner: Double Count Out

    Hamilton

    Ladies and gentlemen, both men could not answer the referee’s count of ten, therefore this match has been ruled a Double Count Out and still your Intercontinental Champion, Finn Balor.

    Ranallo

    Finn Balor keeps his title, but I’m not even sure he knows what happened yet.

    Graves

    He retained on a technicality. He’s lucky and he’s even luckier that Braun Strowman didn’t do anything worse to him.

    Strowman puts his arms up and lets out a yell as the crowd boos him.

    Ranallo

    Balor put up a fight and didn’t back down, but I think you’re right Corey. Balor got lucky it wasn’t worse tonight.

    Graves

    I think the whole Club got a preview of what could be in stored for them at Survivor Series.

    The Wyatt interruption video plays.

    We cut backstage to see Alex Maverick and Shane McMahon in their office in the middle of a discussion.

    Maverick

    I mean I'm not sure what else we can do. We make a match between both groups for Survivor Series but still he seems bent on destruction.

    McMahon

    Bray is obsessed with the World Title. Even a war with The Club isn't stopping that.

    Maverick

    So what do you think we should do?

    McMahon

    We need to contain him and his family. We control them. Not the other way around.

    Just then we hear a knock at the door. Maverick turns towards the door.

    Maverick

    Not now! We're pretty busy!

    We hear the knock again. Maverick and McMahon seem irritated.

    McMahon

    Fine... come in!

    The door opens. Heath Slater and Titus O'Neil walk in the room.

    Maverick

    This isn't a good time guys.

    Slater

    We need to ask you for something very important.

    Slater pauses.

    Another opportunity to prove the type of team we are her on Smackdown!

    O'Neil looks confused and a bit angry.

    O'Neil

    WHAT?! Man you told me this was an emergency! And yet instead you still try to chase after this "team" that's just not working.

    Slater

    Don't say that Titus. We're Slater Gator babaaaay! Of course we work as a team!

    McMahon

    Guys this really isn't the best time. We're dealing with a lot right now with this whole Wyatt Family situation.

    Maverick

    Yeah so unless you can help with it, we're going to need to save this conversation for another time.

    O'Neil

    Come on man. Stop embarrassing yourself and let's leave them to actual problems.

    Slater looks disappointed and holds his head down a bit as he goes to walk out. But then he stops, turns back and holds his head up high.

    Slater

    What if we can help?

    Maverick, McMahon, and O'Neil all look confused.

    What if tonight Slater Gator takes on the Wyatt Family and we show them and the world why we are the best team?!

    Slater looks confident as Maverick and McMahon look at each other an unsure what to think of the offer made. O'Neil doesn't seem too happy.

    O'Neil

    We're not fighting the Wyatts because we don't work as a team.

    Slater turns to O'Neil and speaks with passion.

    Slater

    Titus you're just listening to all of the doubters out there. Sure there have been a few times lately where we've let's victories slip through our hands, but you know that we complement each other well. We are two great athletes with the drive and determination to be at the top of the Smackdown tag team division! It won't be easy but if we can beat the Wyatts then we can beat anyone!

    The crowd cheers for the passionate Slater. O'Neil seems a bit stunned by Slater's passion and is speechless. Maverick and McMahon think about it.

    McMahon

    I like the passion. You want a match with the Wyatts then you got it! Tonight it'll be Slater Gator versus Luke Harper and Erick Rowan.

    Maverick

    Good luck guys.

    Slater

    We've got this. SLATER GATOR BABAAAY!

    Slater does his small dog bark as O'Neil is trying to figure out what just happened and doesn't seem too pleased with the decision. He goes to talk to Maverick and McMahon but Slater pushes O'Neil out the door in excitement.

    **Commercial Break**

    We come back to ringside. “Fight” plays and out comes Kevin Owens as the crowd boos him loudly.

    Hamilton

    Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Kevin Owens!

    Ranallo

    Welcome back to Smackdown and it looks like we are being joined by Kevin Owens…

    Graves

    Mauro, say it with passion! Here comes the captain of Team Owens at Survivor Series, Kevin Owens!

    Ranallo

    Well if you missed Raw, what Corey is referring to is that at Survivor Series we will see a Traditional 5 on 5 Elimination Tag Team match with teams captained by Kevin Owens and John Cena, involving wrestlers from both Raw and Smackdown.

    Graves

    Team Owens still needs to announce their fifth and final member. I have a feeling who it is, but I’m sure that’s what Kevin is out here to tell us.

    Owens gets into the ring and grabs a microphone as the crowd boos him loudly.

    Owens

    Shhhhhh. Quite down. I know that's a new concept for all you loud dirty people from New Jersey...

    The New Jersey crowd boos even louder. Owens smirks.

    I don't need to have seen the Jersey Shore to know how classless and trashy all of you are.

    The crowd boos even louder and it turns into a "You Suck" chant at Owens who stands there unimpressed for a bit waiting for them to tire themselves out.

    Are you done?

    The crowd continues to chant at Owens.

    If you're done proving me right about all of you, then I'd like to introduce a group of respectable men now.

    The crowd boos loudly. Owens waits a bit and clears his throat.

    So let's start off with the man who showed that never-was and never-will-be Dolph Ziggler that he is a zero. The man who does the best cartwheel I've ever seen. He is the Perfect Ten... Tye Dillinger!

    “Ten” plays and out comes Tye Dillinger. The crowd mostly boos but there are still some “10” chants in there.

    Ranallo

    And there’s our answer. We speculated after last night that Tye Dillinger would be the fifth member and it looks like it’s official now.

    Graves

    WHAT A PICK! Kevin Owens is a genius. This move was a perfect ten Mauro!

    Ranallo

    Dillinger has been great since debuting on Raw and has been a thorn in the side of Team Cena member Dolph Ziggler. I smart strategy by Owens to add him to the team.

    Owens

    Next, he's a former WWE Champion who had his title taken from him because of some stupid friends that won the lottery. He's the guy that did what we all have wanted to do for the last decade and that's try to hit John Cena with a car. The Lunatic Fringe... Dean Ambrose!

    “Retaliation” plays and out comes Dean Ambrose to a split crowd as some are booing but some are still on his side cheering.

    Ranallo

    Another Raw wrestler who seems to have his own agenda in all of this as Dean Ambrose is soley focused on taking John Cena out.

    Graves

    So is everyone on Team Cena. They have a common enemy. Maybe they won’t go as far as trying to hit him with a car, but still.

    Owens

    Another former WWE Champion who was the first overall pick in the draft. He is the man that the stupid twig general manager over on Raw doesn't seem to understand just how freakin' amazing he is. The Architect... Seth Rollins!

    “Second Coming” plays and out comes a cocky Seth Rollins, who is booed by the crowd.

    Ranallo

    Well here comes a man who has a lot in common with Kevin Owens. Someone who feels that he has been suppressed and mistreated by his respective General Manager.

    Graves

    Seth Rollins is a perfect fit. This is not just a message to Alex Maverick anymore. It’s a message to both him and Nick Kennedy now, especially from The Architect.

    Owens

    Next up is a man who has been by my side and been a victim with me of the blatant bias by our incompetent general manager. A man whose accolades include winning the Royal Rumble, main eventing WrestleMania and being a former WWE Champion. The man who along with myself is the star of Smackdown. The Big Dog... Roman Reigns!

    “The Truth Reigns” plays and out comes a confident Roman Reigns to a booing crowd.

    Ranallo

    And here is the man who has been by Kevin Owens’ side from the start of all this.

    Graves

    Roman Reigns, just like Kevin Owens, has felt he isn’t getting to opportunities he deserves. They took matters into their own hands and now look what happened. They have a match at Survivor Series against a team captained by the 15 time WWE Champion. I’d say it worked.

    Ranallo

    It’s hard to argue with that.

    Owens

    And last but certainly not least, the man that you all pay to see. The man who has now taken out your precious little poster boy John Cena so many times, I've lost count. The man who will lead these men to victory at Survivor Series and finally force Alex Maverick and Shane McMahon to realize who the true World Champion should be. Your captain of Team Owens... ME! Kevin Owens!

    The crowd boos loudly at Owens, who is holding his arms out while his team claps for him.

    As if those introductions weren't enough, I have a message for the overhyped John Cena and his group of undeserving, never will be talent.

    The crowd boos as Owens looks right at the camera.

    You are looking at the greatest Survivor Series team ever assembled. Go through the history of Survivor Series and take a look at every team... none of them would stand a chance against us.

    Owens lists out teams with his fingers to count.

    Team Warriors, Team Hulkamaniacs, Team DX, even Team WWE... none match up to the caliber of the team you see before you.

    Owens looks at his team.

    Because with a perfect ten, the most destructive group in the Shield and the greatest team captain ever in myself…

    Owens looks out at the crowd again.

    We are simply unbeatable!

    The crowd boos as Team Owens stands their confidently with smirks on their faces. Just then, “Here To Show The World” plays. The crowd cheers as Dolph Ziggler, Apollo Crews, Neville, and Zack Ryder make their way onto the stage. Team Owens looks over at them with disgusted looks on their faces.

    Ziggler

    Kevin will you just shut up!

    The crowd cheers as Owens has a sarcastic offended look on his face.

    Owens

    Oh look everyone... it's the band of misfit losers.

    The crowd boos. Owens points up at Team Cena on the stage.

    You really think you can beat us? It's not even close. What have you four done besides fail time and time again? And your captain is an overrated piece of trash that we have owned time and time again. And some captain. He's not even here tonight. But then again if that was my team, I wouldn't show up either.

    Ziggler

    I expected nothing less from you Kevin. All you do is talk and boast your own ego, but the fact is that our captain is a 15 time WWE World Champion. How many times have you been World Champion again?

    The crowd ohs as Owens is not too pleased with the comment.

    I'm a two time World Champion by the way. See you look at us four up here and see us as never-will-bees and as losers. But you're looking at four of the hungriest competitors in WWE, itching to prove just how damn good we are. And we get that chance to do so at Survivor Series. But I don't want to wait until then. I feel like shutting you up tonight...

    Ziggler points to Dillinger.

    Or proving you're nothing but the imperfect 0.

    Dillinger looks offended by the comment as the crowd cheers.

    It doesn't matter which one of you it is cause I'm ready for a fight!

    The crowd cheers as they feed of Ziggler’s passion. Owens huddles with his team. They come out of the huddle and Owens directs himself towards Ziggler.

    Owens

    OK you want a fight? You've got it!

    The crowd pops and Ziggler nods in approval.

    You're going to go one on one with...

    Owens looks to point to himself but then points his hand on Reigns.

    Roman Reigns!

    The crowd boos loudly as Reigns looks ready for a fight and Owens has a cocky smirk.

    Ziggler

    If you're going to have your puppet fight your battles for you then I'm fine with that!

    Reigns gets angry from the puppet comment.

    Tonight I show off why I'm not a loser and why I'm that damn good!

    Ranallo

    Dolph Ziggler is ready for a fight! And it looks like tonight he gets the Big Dog, Roman Reigns! Not exactly the opponent he was hoping for, but he’ll take it.

    Graves

    Ziggler better know what he’s getting into. Roman Reigns is a star for a reason and he looks ready to punch Ziggler right back to Raw.

    Ranallo

    Well that match will happen later tonight, but right now we are going to show you Fandango on his journey to find the perfect dance partner.

    Graves

    That’s right. He went down to the Performance Center this week and… well… you’ll see if he was successful or not.

    We see a shot of the Performance Center building down in Florida. The camera lowers and we see Fandango gyrating his hips outside the building. He turns around and looks at the camera.

    Fandango

    Oh hi. Didn't see you there checking out my sweet dance moves as per usual. You might be wondering what I'm doing down here. Last week on Smackdown, I was somehow excluded from the opportunity to become the #1 Contender for the World Tag Team Titles. But that will all change once I find the perfect dance partner. And what better place to find a dance partner than the center where they perform?

    Fandango dances over to the building. We cut inside the building

    We cut to Fandango with No Way Jose.

    Fandango

    I was told that you know the art...

    Fandango starts gyrating his hips.

    Of dancing!

    Jose

    Oh I'm a dancing machine.

    Fandango

    Show me what you've got muchacho.

    Jose starts doing a salsa dance and is really getting into it. Fandango shakes his head in disgust and stops Jose.

    Fandango

    STOP! Just Stop!

    Jose stops dancing and looks confused.

    Jose

    What's wrong? I was feeling it.

    Fandango

    They only thing you should feel is shame with such shoddy footwork. We're done here.

    Fandango walks away. Jose look on confused and then shrugs his shoulders and continues to dance.

    We cut to the weight room to see Samoa Joe intensely striking the punching bag and in the zone. Fandango passes by and stops tentatively next to Joe, who stays focused on the punching bag.

    Fandango

    Hey Joe, I'm...

    Joe

    Get lost!

    Fandango backs up as Joe never stops punching the bag.

    Fandango

    OK.

    Fandango walks away, as you can tell he's afraid of Joe.

    We cut to Fandango with Shinsuke Nakamura, who has his hand around his chin as if he's listening and thinking about what Fandango is saying.

    Fandango

    I've heard you're known as the rock star. Well I'm the master of dance...

    Fandango starts slowly gyrating his hips.

    We both can feel the music which would make us the perfect dance partners.

    Fandango points to Nakamura's red leather jacket.

    Clearly we'll have to do something about your fashion sense but I can work with you on that. So what do you say?

    Nakamura looks up to really think about it. He then looks at Fandango.

    Nakamura

    I don't know why you're talking about dancing. I not dancer. I the king of strong style. I kick people hard...

    He points to Fandango

    Like you.

    Fandango looks confused.

    Fandango

    Sorry I don't speak Japanese but I'm going to assume you said yes.

    Nakamura rolls his eyes and points to his mouth.

    Nakamura

    Read my lips...

    Nakamura gets closer to Fandango

    NO!

    Nakamura walks away.

    Fandango

    Must have been lost in translation.

    We cut to Roderick Strong bench pressing in the weight room. Fandango comes up in the middle of his set.

    Fandango

    Looks like you could use a spot.

    Fandango starts spotting Strong but is also gyrating his hips right above his head. Strong finishes the rep and puts the bar back up. He immediately gets up to his feet disgusted.

    Strong

    What's wrong with you?

    Fandango

    I was spotting you like a good partner would do.

    Strong

    I didn't ask for you to spot me and I certainly didn't ask for you to swing your hips over my face.

    Strong grabs his water and towel and walks away annoyed. Fandango yells out as he leaves.

    Fandango

    So do you want to be my partner?

    We cut to Fandango gyrating his hips in the hallway as Billie Kay and Peyton Royce walk by.

    Fandango

    Ladies!

    Fandango winks at them, but Billie and Peyton back away from Fandango and huddle together for safety.

    Billie & Peyton

    EWWWWW!

    Billie and Peyton speed walk away, disgusted. Fandango scoffs at their reaction.

    Fandango

    Their loss. I can do better anyway.

    We cut to Fandango running up to Blake and Murphy.

    Fandango

    Holla muchachos. Today is your lucky day. One of you gets to be my partner. Fight amongst yourselves.

    Blake and Murphy look at each other confused.

    Murphy

    Um we are already tag team partners.

    Blake

    Yeah we're former NXT Tag Team Champions. We're not looking to split up.

    Murphy

    Sorry mate.

    Fandango looks at Murphy and then at Blake.

    Fandango

    OK I'll take the one without the funny accent.

    Blake and Murphy look at each other. Murphy gets a little heated.

    Murphy

    What's wrong with you?!

    Blake calms Murphy down and then looks at Fandango again.

    Fandango

    You're just jealous cause you want to be my partner.

    Blake takes a deep breath, clearly annoyed.

    Blake

    WE are already a team. WE don't want to team with YOU. Got it?

    Blake and Murphy walk off annoyed by the situation. Fandango looks on confused.

    Fandango

    I'm not sure what went wrong there.

    We cut to Fandango at the front of the Performance Center as he is slowly moving to the beat in his head.

    Fandango

    The tryouts will continue to see who can dance their way to gold with me...

    Fandango motions his arm slowly with each syllable across the air.

    FAHN....DAHN....GO!

    Fandango starts gyrating as the video fades out.

    **Commercial Break**

    We cut backstage to see Byron Saxton ready to interview someone.

    Saxton

    Please welcome my guests at this time, American Alpha!

    Jason Jordan and Chad Gable come into the screen as the crowd cheers.

    Two weeks ago, we saw you two lose to the Dudley Boyz, causing you both to be excluded from tonight's #1 Contenders match. How does that make you both feel?

    Gable

    There's nothing more to say than it sucks. We both have always been very competitive people from our time in amateur wrestling, to NXT, to now here on Smackdown.

    Jordan

    We want to be the best. It's what we thrive on. It's just our nature. So to fall and lose out on big opportunities like this... it's tough for us.

    Gable

    But this had lit a fire under us. We will compete even harder to get to that next level!

    Jordan

    It doesn't matter who we have to face because nothing will stop us from getting to the top where we belong!

    The crowd cheers for the impassioned speech. Just then, the camera zooms out and we see an angry Dudley Boyz team walk into the frame and the crowd boos.

    Bubba

    Where you belong?!

    D-Von

    You two think you should be at the top of the division?

    Bubba

    You're looking at the top of the mountain of the tag team division. We have been for over 20 years.

    D-Von

    No one had knocked us down and no one will.

    Bubba

    You two need to remember that you're just rookies and need to recognize and respect the legends that we are!

    The crowd boos.

    Gable

    If I'm not mistaken, didn't you two just lose earlier tonight?

    The Dudleys look displeased with Gable bringing that up.

    Jordan

    Looks like you're more at the top of a hill than a mountain.

    The crowd laughs and ohs as Jordan and Gable smile.

    Bubba

    Oh you two think that's funny? How about two weeks ago when we beat you both 1...

    Bubba and D-Von hold up one finger in the faces of American Alpha.

    2...

    They proceed with a second finger.

    3...

    They finish off with a third as they stare down American Alpha.

    Was that funny?

    The crowd boos as the smiles fade from American Alpha and their game faces take over.

    Gable

    We were just saying we wanted a chance to prove ourselves again. I think we found our opportunity. How about a rematch...

    Gable points to the Dudleys.

    The Dudley Boyz...

    Gable points to himself and Jordan.

    Versus American Alpha. What do you say?

    Bubba and D-Von look at each other and smirk.

    D-Von

    You're on rookies!

    The two teams stare each other down.

    Jordan

    Get ready because that mountain top is about to get awfully crowded.

    The two teams stare each other down as we fade away.

    Ranallo

    Looks like we have a rematch for next week.

    Graves

    The challenge has been laid out and accepted. Hopefully it gets made official. With the mood the Dudleys are in after tonight, I’m not sure if it was wise for American Alpha to take the match…

    Just then, the Wyatt Interruption video plays. The arena goes dark as “Live In Fear” plays. Bray Wyatt leads the Wyatt Family onto the stage and down the ramp with his lantern as the crowd boos loudly.

    Hamilton

    The following tag team contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, being accompanied by Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman, at a combined weight of 590 pounds, representing the Wyatt Family, Luke Harper & Erick Rowan.

    Ranallo

    You talk about being wise to take a match… I’m not sure how wise it was for Heath Slater to ask for this match.

    Graves

    How wise? It was stupid! Did he not see the beginning of the show? Or Strowman take on Balor earlier? The Wyatts are not in a good mood tonight. Worse than normal.

    Ranallo

    And that’s saying something. I’m sure Wyatt has given instructions to both Harper and Rowan to make a statement tonight to Alex Maverick and Shane McMahon after not getting the World Title match he wanted.

    Wyatt blows out the lantern in the ring. The music stops and the lights come back on as the crowd continues to boo loudly. “Let Me Show You How To Rock” plays. Heath Slater comes out first and looks down the ramp at the Wyatts in the ring. He takes a dep breath and tries to psych himself up. He looks behind him and see Titus O’Neil isn’t with him. He goes back, grabs him and gets O’Neil to come out with him. Both men tentatively make their way down the ramp.

    Hamilton

    And their opponents, at a combined weight of 486 pounds, Heath Slater & Titus O'Neil, Slater Gator.

    Ranallo

    Heath Slater somehow is psyching himself up for this, but Titus O’Neil looks to want nothing with this match.

    Graves

    Can you blame him?! Titus thought they were done teaming together. Now because of this idiot he’s forced to face the Wyatts. I’d just run if I were him.

    Ranallo

    Slater wanted one last shot to prove Slater Gator should be a team. If they could somehow pull off the upset, I’d say that’s more than enough to prove they belong as a team.

    The Wyatt Family (Luke Harper & Eric Rowan) vs. Slater Gator

    The bell rings and Slater is in his corner trying to psych himself up. He gets himself pumped up and yells out "SLATER GATOR BABAAAY!" Slater turns around and runs at Harper, only to get taken down by a devastating Big Boot to the face! Harper stares down O'Neil who wants nothing to do with him. Harper picks Slater up by the head and shoves him back into a corner. Harper points at Slater with that crazy look in his eyes and runs at him with a Shoulder Thrust into Slater's gut. Harper slowly gets to a standing position and punches away at Slater. Harper turns around and hits him with a few hard back elbows. Harper pulls Slater out of the corner right into a CLOTHESLINE that turns Slater inside out! Harper stares out yelling "Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!" as the crowd boos. Harper slowly walks over to his corner and tags in Rowan. Slater in pain and on the mat manages to look up towards O’Neil and reach his arm towards him in desperation. O'Neil shows no emotion and drops down from the apron. The crowd boos heavily as O'Neil walks away and up the ramp. Slater looks on with a confused and upset look on his face. Harper and Rowan pick Slater up, grab him but the throat and deliver the DOUBLE CHOKESLAM! Rowan goes for the cover...1...2...3! The Wyatts win!

    Winners: The Wyatt Family

    Hamilton

    Here are your winners, The Wyatt Family!

    Ranallo

    Heath Slater never stood a chance. It was like sending a lamb to the slaughter.

    Graves

    Titus O’Neil doing the smart thing and leaving before he got involved in something he didn’t need to be involved in.

    Ranallo

    I admire Heath for trying, but this was just not the night to do so against the Wyatts.

    Wyatt gets into the ring with the rest of the family by his side.

    Wyatt

    The powers that be are ignorant. They think they can satisfy us with a few sacrifices.

    Wyatt points down at Slater.

    They think they can please us with a battle with The Club. Well make no mistake about it... at Survivor Series my family and I will win the battle…

    Wyatt pauses and puts his finger up and shakes it back and forth.

    But the war will not be over.

    Wyatt points at himself.

    It won't be over until I get what I want. It's an insatiable desire that won't be fulfilled until I possess the “great power.” And like most desire and most passion…

    Wyatt looks down at his hand with the glove on it and then stares back up with an evil look.

    It turns into rage! Rage beyond anyone's control for I'm growing restless. So we will take out anyone and everyone, including the Club until I get what I want... NO... what I DESERVE!

    Wyatt looks down at a hurt and helpless Slater.

    And we'll start with him!

    Wyatt quickly drops the microphone and picks up Slater by the head. Wyatt has a crazy look in his eyes as the Wyatt Family looks on with sadistic looks on their faces.

    Wyatt

    Off microphone

    It's nothing personal. You can thank Alex Maverick and Shane McMahon for this.

    Just as Wyatt is about to lift Slater up to his feet, we see Alex Maverick run out onto the stage frantically.

    Maverick

    BRAY! STOP! He has nothing to do with this.

    Wyatt looks up at Maverick with a sadistic smirk on his face.

    Let Heath go. This is between you and me.

    Wyatt lets go of Slater, who drops to the mat. Slater, who is still hurt, tries to roll out of the ring, but Strowman stops him and puts a foot on his back so he can't move.

    I said let him go!

    Wyatt

    He'll stay for now. His fate is in your hands.

    Maverick

    This is ridiculous. You can't threaten me. I'm the boss!

    Wyatt does his sadistic laugh.

    Wyatt

    See that's where you're wrong. You may think you're the boss, but I hold all the power. Heath Slater will be another sacrifice just like Sami Zayn was...

    Wyatt pauses.

    Just like the Club will be and just like everyone else will be until I get the “great power!”

    Maverick

    Security! Get out here now!

    Maverick waves for security and they come out onto the stage.
    Wyatt
    I wouldn't do that. If you or anyone for that matter takes one step closer, Braun Strowman will put all his weight on Heath Slater, crushing his ribs in seconds.

    Maverick holds off security.

    So if you or your security or The Club wants to try their luck…

    Wyatt pauses and has an evil stare.

    I wouldn't.

    Maverick seems overly frustrated and tells security to back off.

    That's what I thought.

    Maverick

    You know I stood up for you at the draft. I thought you had so much promise. But you've been nothing but a nightmare. You're like a kid who can't get what he wants so he throws a tantrum.

    Wyatt

    A tantrum? This is much more serious than that. I've had enough of waiting for my opportunity to get what should have been mine for a long time! And now I'm not asking...

    Wyatt points at Maverick as he’s getting even more serious and angry.

    I'm telling you to give it to me! NOW!

    Maverick stands their frustrated trying to figure out what to do. Wyatt grows impatient and signals towards Strowman to hurt Slater.

    Maverick

    STOP! Ok you want a title match so badly? At Survivor Series, if your team wins, then Bray Wyatt, you get a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship!

    Wyatt smirks as he likes the decision.

    But if you lose...

    Maverick pauses and gets very intense.

    Then so help me God, you'll be gone from Smackdown... FOR GOOD!

    The crowd is stunned for a second by the announcement and then goes crazy for it with "YES!" chants. Wyatt has a serious and evil look on his face.

    Wyatt

    I assure you... my family and I will emerge victorious and I will capture the great power. And God won't help you get rid of me...

    Wyatt holds out his arm.

    Because you're looking at him!

    Wyatt instructs Strowman to get Slater up and pass him to him, which Strowman does. Wyatt gets Slater in position, stares down Maverick with an evil grin on his face, kisses Slater's forehead and delivers a nasty SISTER ABIGAIL! Wyatt kneels down by a fallen Slater and stares up at Maverick with his hands out.

    Wyatt

    Off microphone

    FOLLOW THE BUZZARDS!

    The camera zooms in on Wyatt with an evil stare as the Wyatt Interruption video plays.

    **Commercial Break**


    We come back to the backstage area to see a visibly frustrated and stressed Alex Maverick. Just then, Shane McMahon comes running up to him.

    McMahon

    Hey... what was that about?!

    Maverick half acknowledges McMahon as he's still frustrated.

    That's a huge stipulation that we never discussed. I mean...

    McMahon pauses.

    What if Bray Wyatt loses? How do you even plan to "get rid of him?"

    Maverick slowly looks over at McMahon with a frustrated and fed up look on his face.

    Maverick

    I'm not sure but I'm sick of this game already. He wants to put us in an all or nothing situation?

    Maverick pauses.

    Well he's got it! Now let's see what he can do.

    Maverick stands there with McMahon with a very serious look on his face.

    We cut back to ringside.

    Ranallo

    Wow… after everything that’s happened, I’m not sure if we’ve seen Alex Maverick this frustrated before.

    Graves

    Can you blame him? He was given no choice. It’s a very bold stipulation… let’s see how this works out for him.

    “Recognition” plays and out comes Charlotte and Dana Brooke. The two taunt at the top of the stage as the crowd boos them.

    Hamilton

    The following tag team contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, the team of Charlotte and Dana Brooke.

    Ranallo

    Well right now, we sift our focus to Charlotte and Dana Brooke, who have had their own issues to deal with in the form of Becky Lynch.

    Graves

    That’s right. Becky has been wrongly accusing Charlotte and Dana of cheating at times and believes she’s better than the Queen. But the fact is, no one is better than the Queen Mauro!

    Ranallo

    That remains to be seen. Charlotte and Dana challenged Becky to this match last week and they seemed pretty confident that she wouldn’t find a partner.

    “Celtic Invasion” plays and out comes Becky Lynch from the smoke on the stage as the crowd cheers her.

    Hamilton

    Their opponents, first, from Dublin, Ireland, Becky Lynch.

    Ranallo

    And here comes the Lass Kicker now as she looks fired up and ready to go.

    Graves

    It’s all a façade. She can be all fired up but it won’t change the fact that the Queen is simply better than her. Plus I’m pretty sure we’re about to see a handicap match here.

    Ranallo

    After being attacked from behind, cheated out of matches and falling victim to the two on one disadvantage, Becky looks to even the odds here tonight. But who did she get?

    Graves

    If anyone.

    Becky is at the bottom of the ramp as her music fades out. Charlotte and Dana are taunting at Becky asking where her partner is. Becky smirks and points to the stage. “SKY’S THE LIMIT” plays and out comes SASHA BANKS to a huge ovation. Charlotte and Dana don’t seem too pleased.

    Hamilton

    And her partner, from Boston, MA, she is the Womens World Champion, Sasha Banks.

    Ranallo

    OH MY! The Womens World Champion, The Boss, Sasha Banks! I don’t think you can get a better partner than that!

    Graves

    Why is the champion on here? She should be worried about her match with Natalya and not sticking her nose in a situation that it doesn’t belong.

    Ranallo

    Becky and Sasha have been friends since back in NXT. We saw a hell of a battle between them at backlash for the title. But now they all allies against a common enemy in Charlotte and her protégé.

    Charlotte & Dana Brooke vs. Becky Lynch & Sasha Banks

    Sasha and Dana start things off, with Sasha taking control. Sasha and Becky tag in and out, keeping control of the match. A bit into the match, Dana is in the corner with Becky and rakes her eyes to cause separation. Dana tags in Charlotte who takes control of the match for her team. Charlotte and Dana keep control, until Charlotte gets too cocky and Becky is able to take advantage getting her boot up as Charlotte runs at her in the corner. Becky gets to the second rope and nails Charlotte with a dropkick, allowing Becky to tag in Sasha, just as Charlotte tags in Dana. Sasha lands a flurry of strikes and her signature moves against Dana. Sasha gets Dana in the corner and sets her up on the middle rope, nailing her with the Double Knee Strike! Sasha goes for the cover...1...2...Charlotte comes in and breaks it up. Becky comes in and they start brawling until the referee separates them and gets them to their corners. Sasha gets Dana over to her corner and tags in a fired up Becky. Becky lands a few forearm strikes and hits her with a Reverse Exploder! Becky runs over at Charlotte and knocks her out of the corner and to the floor with a flying forearm strike. Becky then goes back to Dana and nails her with the BECKSPLEX! The crowd cheers loudly as Becky grabs Dana's arm and locks in the DIS-ARM-HER! Just then, THE BELL RING. Becky lets go thinking she's won, but the referee, who is confused, waves it off and says he didn't call for the bell. Everyone looks over and sees NATALYA is the one who rang the bell. Natalya holds the Womens World Title up and taunts towards Sasha. Sasha is furious. She gets down from the apron and runs over at Natalya, who goes to escape through the crowd. Sasha chases Natalya through the crowd and to the back. Back in the ring, Becky seems confused at everything going on as he partner has left and she thought she had won before. While she discusses with the referee what's going on, Dana manages to crawl her way over to her corner and tag in Charlotte, who is back up in the corner. The referee sees the tag but Becky doesn't. Charlotte gets in and lands a Big Boot to the back of Becky's head, knocking her hard to the mat. Charlotte sets up and nails Becky with the NATURAL SELECTION! Charlotte goes for the cover as the crowd boos loudly...1...2...3! Charlotte and Dana win!

    Winners: Charlotte & Dana Brooke

    Hamilton

    Here are your winners, Dana Brooke and Charlotte!

    Graves

    I told you Mauro! Becky can't beat the Queen and tonight proved it!

    Ranallo

    How can you even begin to defend that victory after Natalya rang the bell prematurely, stole the Womens World Title, and caused Sasha to chase after her, leaving Becky all alone and confused.

    Charlotte and Dana celebrate up the ramp as they look on at a fallen Becky in the ring with cocky grins on their faces. The crowd booing them loudly doesn't seem to take away from their enjoyment.

    Graves

    It's not the Queen and her protégé's fault if her partner abandons her and she's confused. And by the way, I told you that team wouldn't work.

    Ranallo

    Becky is not going to be happy after it looked like she was closing in on a victory with the Dis-Arm-Her. But the even bigger story is Natalya taking the Womens World Title! Where did she go with it and why?

    Graves

    Although I don't condone stealing championship, I'm sure a veteran like Natalya has a plan in mind.

    **Commercial Break**

    We come back backstage where we see a furious Sasha Banks searching the hallways for Natalya.

    Sasha

    NATTIE!

    Sasha checks a room and then slams the door.

    WHERE’s MY CHAMPIONSHIP?!

    Sasha passes a worker.

    Have you seen Natalya?!

    The worker shakes his head no. Sasha keeps walking.

    NATALYA!

    Just then Sasha is approached by Byron Saxton with her Women World Championship in hands.

    Saxton

    Sasha, Natalya asked me to give you this.

    Sasha takes the title back and looks down at it still furious.

    She also wanted me to give me a message.

    Saxton pauses and seems tentative as he doesn’t want to get involved in this.

    Natalya said she stole your title so you’ll get a taste of what it’ll be like after Survivor Series.

    Sasha soaks the message in as she still stares furiously down at her title. She then lifts her head up slowly and turns towards Saxton.

    Sasha

    Well you tell Natalya that she’s going to regret messing with The Boss… and you can Bank On That!

    Sasha walks away furiously as Saxton stands there still tentative.

    We come back to ringside with Ranallo and Graves. “Ready For War (Pray For Peace)” by Adelitas Way is playing in the background.

    Ranallo

    Sasha sending her own message to the challenger...

    A graphic shows on the screen for the Womens World Championship match at Survivor Series.

    But at Survivor Series there will be no sneak attacks. There will be no stealing the title. And there will be no controversy as we settle this in a 2 Out of 3 Falls Match.

    Graves

    Both women are at the top of their game and looking to be the one to lead the women's division. Who will be able to beat their opponents twice in order to walk out the Womens World Champion?

    A graphic shows on the screen for the World Tag Team Championship match at Survivor Series.

    Ranallo

    Speaking of champions, the World Tag Team Champions will have their first title defense at Survivor Series as Rusev and Sheamus take on the new #1 contenders Enzo Amore and Big Cass.

    Graves

    I'm sure Lana has a game plan for her two dominating champions and I hope it's beat the hell out of Enzo Amore so he can never annoy us again.

    A graphic shows on the screen for the Wyatt Family vs. The Club at Survivor Series.

    Ranallo

    It's been a night of announcements regarding the Wyatts and The Club. We kicked off the night finding out they will face off in a 4 on 4 Elimination Tag Team match at Survivor Series but now it looks like the stipulation has been added that if the Wyatts win, Bray Wyatt gets a World Title shot. But if they lose, then Wyatt is gone from Smackdown for good.

    Graves

    A spur of the moment decision from our frustrated General Manager, but no matter the outcome, things will surely change after Survivor Series.

    A graphic shows on the screen for Team Owens vs. Team Cena at Survivor Series.

    Ranallo

    And we heard the announcement last night on Raw. It will be Team Owens taking on Team Cena in a Traditional 5 On 5 Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Match with wrestlers from both Raw and Smackdown.

    Graves

    This started with Kevin Owens trying to make a statement to our General Manager and it has not encompassed so much more than that. I can't wait to see this one.

    “The Truth Reigns” plays and out comes Roman Reigns, flanked by the rest of Team Owens, Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Tye Dillinger. Reigns walks confidently down the ramp as the crowd boos him and the rest of Team Owens loudly.

    Hamilton

    The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, being accompanied by Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Tye Dillinger, from Pensacola, FL, weighing in at 265 pounds, Roman Reigns.

    Ranallo

    And right now we get to see a bit of a preview as Roman Reigns takes on Dolph Ziggler. And Corey, Dolph actually wanted Kevin Owens or Tye Dillinger tonight, but he gets Reigns instead.

    Graves

    It's a smart, strategic move by Kevin Owens. Don't play into his hand and give Ziggler what he wants. Put your biggest and strongest guy in there to soften Ziggler up. It's brilliant!

    Ranallo

    You may call it brilliant but others may see it as cowardice by the team captain. Nonetheless, Roman Reigns looks ready to get his hands dirty tonight.

    “Here To Show The World” plays and out comes Dolph Ziggler with Apollo Crews, Neville and Zack Ryder by his side. The four men stand at the top of the ramp staring down Team Owens in the ring before going down the ramp as the crowd cheers them.

    Hamilton

    And his opponent, being accompanied by Apollo Crews, Neville, and Zack Ryder, from Hollywood, FL, weighing in at 218 pounds, Dolph Ziggler.

    Ranallo

    But here's a man who has had enough of everyone on Team Owens and their antics and is looking to shut them up.

    Graves

    Ziggler is doing exactly what he always does... getting into situations that he has nothing to do with him. That's what he did with this whole John Cena situation and that's what he and the rest of Team Cena did earlier tonight when Kevin Owens was giving those amazing introductions to his team.

    Ranallo

    Ziggler, Apollo Crews, Neville, and Zack Ryder are all banding together for the same cause... to show Team Owens that they belong and defend the locker room against guys like them "making a statement." And tonight, Ziggler gets to make his own statement against Reigns.

    Roman Reigns vs. Dolph Ziggler

    The match starts with Ziggler coming out of the gate explosive at Reigns. Ziggler is hyped up and continues his offense until Owens tries to swipe at his foot on the outside as he bounces off the ropes. Ziggler gets distracted which allows Reigns to take over. Reigns keeps a slow methodical beatdown of Ziggler as the crowd boos loudly for him. Reigns is starting to get cocky after a Samoan Drop. He has a swagger about him as he sets up for the Spear, but Ziggler moves out of the way, sending Reigns into the ring post of the nearby corner. Both men slowly get up and trade blows, but Ziggler gets the better of them after a reversal into a running jumping clothesline. Ziggler is getting pumped up and hits him with a flurry of signature moves like the splash in the corner and the Jumping elbow drop. Ziggler hits the Fame-Ass-Er and goes for the cover...1...2...Reigns kicks out but you can tell Ziggler holds all the momentum now. Ziggler is stalking Reigns as he slowly gets to his feet. The crowd is behind Ziggler has he's pumped up looking for the Superkick. But before Reigns can get to a vertical base, Dillinger gets up on the apron and yells at Ziggler, distracting him. Ziggler goes for the Superkick on Dillinger instead, but Dillinger drops down just in time. Dillinger has a smirk on his face, points to himself and slowly puts out the ten sign to Ziggler, who is heated. Crews comes over and starts yelling at Dillinger to stay down. The two are verbally jabbing back and forth until Rollins and Ambrose join Dillinger's side. Neville and Ryder then join Crews and the six men start an all-out brawl at ringside. The crowd is going crazy as the two sides battle each other on the side of the ring. The referee goes over towards that side of the ring and yells at all of them to stop it and get out of there. While this goes on, Ziggler turns around to focus back on his opponent Reigns, but get clocked with a SUPERKICK BY OWENS! Owens smirks as he knows he got payback for last week. Ziggler stumbles and gets nailed with a SPEAR BY REIGNS! Reigns yells at the referee to turn around and count as he goes for the cover...1...2...3! Reigns wins!

    Winner: Roman Reigns

    Hamilton

    Here is your winner, Roman Reigns!

    Graves

    What did I tell you Mauro?! A win for Team Owens just like what will happen at Survivor Series!

    Ranallo

    You have to question all the interference, especially Kevin Owens returning a Superkick to Dolph Ziggler from last week.

    Team Owens celebrates in the ring as the crowd boos heavily. Team Cena gathers by the ramp looking defeated as they help a hurt Ziggler up the ramp.

    Graves

    Turnabout is fair play. Owens took advantage of the situation and Reigns capitalized. We could very well see this same situation in a few weeks.

    Ranallo

    In a chaotic environment that the 5 on 5 Elimination Tag Team match is, that is very possible.

    Graves

    Just think, Ziggler could be left alone with Reigns and Owens and it could play out just like this.

    Ranallo

    Hopefully for Team Cena’s sake, when their captain gets back, he can light a spark under his team. But if tonight is any indication, it's going to be an interesting next few weeks leading to Survivor Series. Thank you for joining us tonight here on Smackdown. Goodnight!


    Talking Smack


    “Take A Chance” plays and we join Michael Cole and Alex Maverick at the Talking Smack set.

    Cole

    Welcome once again to Talking Smack! I’m your host Michael Cole and tonight I’m lucky enough to be joined by both the Smackdown General Manager AND the Smackdown Commissioner, Alex Maverick and Shane McMahon.

    McMahon seems a bit out of it as does Maverick, who looks a bit more stressed and frustrated.

    McMahon

    Thanks for have us Michael.

    Cole

    Judging by both of your body language, let’s just get right into the big story of tonight. We started off Smackdown tonight with a big announcement by both of you that at Survivor Series it will be The Club taking on The Wyatt Family in a 4 On 4 Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Match. Now that was big on its own, yet Bray Wyatt didn’t seem too pleased as he was expecting a World Title match.

    Cole pauses as Maverick still seems stressed and out of it.

    And that wouldn’t be in as far as announcements go tonight concerning those two groups. Later in the night, after Luke Harper and Erick Rowan were victorious in what turned into essentially a handicap match against Heath Slater, Bray Wyatt made another declaration about how he wanted a World Title match. Only this time, he held Heath Slater hostage, literally under the foot of the massive Braun Strowman.

    Cole turns towards Maverick.

    We then saw you, Alex, come out and basically getting into a hostage negotiation, not just about Heath Slater but the rest of the roster and Smackdown in general. Ultimately, we saw you make a decision, seemingly on the spot, to add the stipulation that at Survivor Series if the Wyatts win then Bray Wyatt gets his World Title match. But if he loses, then he’s gone from Smackdown.

    Cole directs himself towards both men now.

    We saw afterwards a bit of a tension filled discussion between you two about this decision. So I have to ask, Maverick, what prompted this decision and now that some time has passed, how do you both feel about it? Will you still keep it in place?

    McMahon looks at Maverick, who doesn’t seem like he’s going to answer so McMahon jumps in.

    McMahon

    So while I don’t want speak for Alex on his exact reasoning, I get why he did that. Bray Wyatt has been causing havoc and getting under our skins since the first episode of Smackdown post-draft. He thinks that he’s runs this show and that he can do whatever he wants. Now this war with The Club, I’m fine with. I’m even fine with him wanting a World Title shot. He’s a great competitor and could’ve been next in line for it. But he didn’t get exactly what he wanted so what did he do? He took it too far like we’ve seen in the past. We saw it with Sami Zayn. We saw it tonight with him holding Heath Slater hostage and threatening to do the same thing to each and every wrestler in the back until he gets what he wanted.

    McMahon pauses.

    While I think we should’ve maybe had a discussion together about this rationally in the back, I stick by Alex’s decision. I’m not afraid to admit that I didn’t want Wyatt on our roster as good as he is because of what is happening. But I can’t blame Alex because this is worse than anyone would’ve ever thought. Some flip switched in Bray Wyatt’s head and now he’s more dangerous and psychotic than ever. So now it’s come down to feast or famine for Bray Wyatt. Does he get his title shot, or does he lose his place here on Smackdown?

    Cole

    I wanted to follow up on that. If the Wyatts do lose, how do you plan to get rid of him and will the rest of his family have the same fate?

    McMahon

    Well right now; this is just for Bray Wyatt. He’s the leader in all of this and the most dangerous. As for how we would get rid of him… we’re not exactly sure yet. It’s something we’d need to discuss.

    Maverick finally perks up and leans in.

    Maverick

    It doesn’t matter if we need to trade him to Raw or fire him… Bray Wyatt will be gone from Smackdown permanently if he loses. Shane said it best. It’s Feast or Famine for Bray Wyatt. He brought this upon himself and left me no choice. He wants his opportunity? Well I just gave him a chance to legitimately earn his opportunity at the World Title. If he wins, Bray will get exactly what he’s wanted all along. And if he loses… let’s just say we all know that if he loses and he’s not gone from Smackdown… what’s happening now will be nothing compared to the destruction and rage he will unleash!

    Maverick looks at the hard camera and it zooms into him.

    So Bray Wyatt… your whole world is truly in your hands now. Will you Feast…

    Maverick pauses and gets a very serious look on his face.

    Or Famine!

    The camera keeps the shot on Maverick’s serious face as the shot fades out and the show concludes.

    WWE Presents…

    Monday Night Raw from Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada

    Episode 15

    November 7th 2016

    “Evening the Odds”

    Then.Now.Forever signature opening plays. Screen is black for a few moments before in big white letters all capitalized “LAST WEEK”.


    Main Event: Jack Swagger/Cesaro vs. The Revival


    Match Summary: In the early going Jack Swagger was able to lock in the Patriot Lock on Scott Dawson, but luckily for Dawson his partner was on the outside to drag him out of harm’s way. Since the early scare the champions are able to gain the upperhand and take it to the two time All-Americans. They may be a part of the new era; however they are performing like a throwback tag team. Quick tags and they are keeping Swagger down on the mat, wearing down the big guy. The All-American, American gets a little opening after hitting Wilder with a back body drop. He crawls over to his corner but running all away around the ring is Dawson who pulls Cesaro off the apron as Swagger is unable to make a tag! Wilder from behind then delivers a huge clothesline that nearly takes the All-American’s head off.

    Wilder hits Swagger with a drop toe-hold while Dawson hits Swagger with an elbow drop to the back. Dawson immediately goes for a pin and gets a two count. Dawson quickly locks in a half-nelson submission on Swagger. We see Cesaro with a worried look on his face. Swagger has been in the ring for a long time and the odds are not in the challenger’s favor right now. The crowd is trying to get behind the All-American who slowly works himself back up to a vertical base. With his one loose arm he delivers a few punches to the gut. Dawson comes back with a knee to the abdomen. He then bounces himself off the ropes and gets a big boot that sends him stumbling back into the ropes. HE BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES AND RIGHT INTO A DESPERATION BELLY TO BELLY FROM SWAGGER! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN! CAN A WORN DOWN JACK SWAGGER MAKE THE TAG?!?!

    TAG AND WILDER IS IN AND HERE COMES CESARO WHO IS TAGGED IN AS WELL WITH A DIVING CROSS-BODY. To his credit Wilder is quickly up but a back body drop sends him back down to the mat. He holds his back as he stumbles into the corner. Cesaro like a bullet flies into the corner sending a tooth or spit flying out of Wilder’s mouth as he connects with a devastating European Uppercut. Wilder is out cold and Cesaro can go for a pin, but there is Dawson entering the battle. He delivers a few right hands and whips The Swiss Superman into the ropes. Cesaro comes back to Dawson with his head down and Cesaro delivers a straight kick to the chest. Dawson yells out in pain as Cesaro knocks him down with a clothesline. He grabs Dawson by the head and tosses him over the top rope. The minor distraction from Dawson allows his partner to go for the school-boy pin and A HANDFUL OF TIGHTS.

    1

    2

    NO! Cesaro kickout at two and three-quarters. Wow! Both men are up and Wilder goes for a dropkick which is caught by Cesaro. The crowd gets on their feet as Cesaro has Wilder in the center of the ring. The King of Swing is now swinging Wilder round and round and this could lead to them swinging their way to the tag team championships. After the crowd’s count of ten, Cesaro steps through and locks in the SHARPSHOOTER. Wilder is in the center of the ring, Dawson is nowhere in sight! Wilder tries to crawl towards the ropes, but the Swiss Superman drags him away! NEW TAG CHAMPS?!?! THE CROWD IS BOOING?!?! WHY?!?!?!

    BOOM! UNITED STATES TITLE TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! Cesaro releases the hold and falls to the mat as the bell rings. We see The Miz and his fellow A-Listers, Alberto Del Rio and Tyler Breeze. Miz is barking orders as Del Rio and Breeze carry out those orders, stomping away on Cesaro!

    Winners: Jack Swagger & Cesaro by DQ

    The crowd continues to boo as the assault of Cesaro continues. Miz just stands back with his wife as Prince Pretty and El Presidente work over the former number one contender to The Miz’s championship. Miz then hands his United States Championship to his wife while Breeze and Del Rio get Cesaro up to a vertical base. They hold him up as Miz delivers a big boot to the face. Cesaro falls and Miz goes to celebrate AND HERE COMES SWAGGER CHARGING IN ON THE CHAMPION…HE’S CUT OFF BY DEL RIO AND BREEZE. He tries to fight them off delivering wild punches, hitting anything that moves but the number game (and fatigue) gets to the All-American American. Like his partner he stands no chance and feels a worse faith than Cesaro. This time Breeze and Del Rio stand him up only for the United States Champion to deliver a SKULL CRUSHING FINALE! The Revival join the A-Listers inside the ring. Miz looks at both of them as Maryse comes in with all three titles. She goes to hand the tag titles first but Miz takes them instead. The crowd is buzzing as The Revival seem confused and tense up as they think another fight is about to break up.

    A serious Miz turns into a smiling Miz as he hands them their titles and hugs the both of them, much to the dismay of the crowd. Miz then grabs his title as Del Rio and Breeze shake hands with their new allies. It seems like the A-Listers may have a few country boys by their side. The five superstars and Maryse stand tall in the center of the ring and raise their hands in victory as we say goodnight from Sin City!

    “Light up the Sky” plays in the background as the Raw opening video plays. After the video we saw the Canadian crowd and of course…..


    *PYRO*


    *PYRO*

    *PYRO*

    A wide shot of the sold out Bell Centre is shown for the fans at home and it is loud. Plenty of fans representing their favorite superstars. A lot of fanfare for Kevin Owens especially since he is Canadian. However, it is unknown if he will even be on Raw tonight.


    Phillips


    We are less than two weeks away from Survivor Series. This is Monday Night Raw, live from Montreal, Canada!

    JBL

    I cannot wait for Survivor Series!

    *AWWWWWESOME*

    *I Came To Play*

    The crowd boos as some WWE workers start to roll out a red carpet just in time as the A-Lister group makes their way out from behind the curtains. The A-List couple leads them down to the ring as Del Rio and Breeze follow.


    JBL


    I couldn’t wait for this! A special Miz TV, live from Canada. What a treat for the fans!

    Phillips

    As we saw before we came on the air Miz and his fellow A-Listers got involved in the WWE Tag Team Championship match, attacking Jack Swagger and Cesaro.

    JBL

    Swagger and Cesaro has been a thorn in the side of the United States Champion.

    Phillips

    I think you have it backwards John. Miz and his fellow A-Listers have been a thorn in the side of Jack Swagger and Cesaro.

    Miz holds down the rope for his wife who gives him a kiss on the cheek when she enters. There are six director chairs in the ring and each of the A-Listers take a seat except for the Miz who stands front and center. Miz is dressed sharply and sports sunglasses inside. He also sports the United States Championship around his waist. He taps his foot angrily waiting for this crowd to die down, but they are letting him have it. Finally he shoots his arm high in the air.


    Miz


    When my hand goes up, your mouths go shut!

    That didn’t work. More heat. Miz then turns to his wife.


    Miz


    Can you talk to these people in French? Maybe then, they will understand.

    Maryse stands from her seat and goes next to her husband grabbing the microphone from him.


    Maryse


    Quand sa main monte, ta bouche s'enclenche !

    More boos from the crowd. However, they are starting to tire themselves out. He turns to his wife and says thank you before kissing her on the lips. She takes her spot next to Del Rio as Miz lets the boos die down before taking a deep breath and saying…


    Miz


    Welcome to the most must see WWE talk-show in history…welcome to Miz TV !

    The crowd boos.


    Miz


    That’s right Miz TV is internationally broadcasted live from Montréal, Canada….eh !

    The crowd boos as Miz mocks Canadians. He has a smile on his face.


    Miz


    Tonight is a special edition of Miz TV, as I’m not the only champion that will be on this show. Last week they were able to walk out of Las Vegas still the WWE Tag Team Champions…please welcome my guest at this time Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson, better known as The Revival!

    *Southern Proud*

    To a chorus of boos we see the tag team champions appear. They taunt the crowd a bit as they take the titles off their waists before clinking them together atop the ramp before making their way down to the ring.


    Phillips


    No surprise here after Miz helped these two keep those titles last week.

    JBL

    It seems like Miz is adding some Southern flavor to his A-Lister empire.

    The Revival are welcomed by handshakes from The Miz who motions towards the empty seats to his right. The trio takes a seat.


    Miz


    Before called up to the main roster you were one of the most dominate tag teams down at NXT. What is the biggest difference you noticed between the NXT tag division and the Raw tag division?

    Dawson

    To be honest Miz…

    (pauses)

    …absolutely nothing.

    Wilder laughs as Dawson continues.


    Dawson


    We dominated down in NXT and now we’re dominating here on Monday Night Raw. Everyone that has been put in front of us, we have been able to defeat.

    Wilder

    (counting on his fingers)

    The Golden Truth, The Usos, The New Day…

    (pauses)

    …you name them, we beat them.

    Dawson

    They don’t call us the top guys for nothing.

    *Patriot*

    The crowd cheers as we see Jack Swagger and Cesaro dressed for competition. Both have microphones in their hands and the six people in the ring are not excited to see them.


    Swagger


    While you have defeated plenty of impressive teams here on Monday Night Raw, you failed to mention one team.

    Cesaro

    A team that has two victories in a row and should be the new WWE Tag Team Champions.

    The crowd starts to cheer.


    Miz


    But you’re not…

    The crowd boos.


    Miz


    What I see are a pair of losers, who not only failed to capture the WWE Tag Team titles, but also failed to capture the United States title.

    Swagger

    Thanks to you are your fellow D-Listers.

    Breeze and Del Rio immediately shoot up from their chairs taking offense to that as Miz has to hold them back.


    Miz


    (sarcastically)

    Really? Really? Real cute saying that all the way up there. You should come down here are say it to our faces.

    Swagger and Cesaro look at each other and shrug before taking a few steps down the ramp. Both men stop halfway down the ramp as everyone in the ring seem confuse.


    Swagger


    We’re tired of being on the wrong side of the numbers.

    Cesaro

    That is why we’re evening the odds.

    *So Close Now*

    The crowd roars with excitement as The Usos appear with equal energy to match that of the fans. They swagger down the ramp joining Swagger and Cesaro. The camera show both members of The Revival who are turning red with anger.


    Miz


    Apparently math isn’t your strong point. There are still five of us and four of you.

    “Let’s Make Darren Young Great Again!”

    *Great Again*

    The crowd cheers and Del Rio is now fuming as we see a returning Darren Young with his life coach Bob Backlund.


    Phillips


    It’s Darren Young! We haven’t seen him since he was injured by Alberto Del Rio.

    JBL

    Now the odds are even.

    All five men stand halfway up the ramp. They all stare down the five men in the ring. After a few moments of staring down each other, here comes Swagger, Cesaro, Jey, Jimmy and Young all charging down the ramp and sliding down the ramp and it is chaos! Maryse gets out of the ring immediately as everyone is trading blows. Miz and Swagger are in the center of the ring. The Revival are dueling with The Usos, Breeze is being handled by Cesaro, while Del Rio and Young are paired off in the far corner.

    Swagger knocks down Miz with a clothesline who quickly rolls out of the ring. The Usos send both members of the Revival over the top rope with clotheslines. Young hits Del Rio with a dropkick that sends him through the ropes and landing hard on the outside. We then see Breeze get knocked up and over the top rope with a clothesline from the Swiss Superman. Breeze lands hard on his head.

    The crowd is going wild as the five men in the ring stand tall, tossing Miz TV chairs out of the ring while Miz and Maryse try to corral everyone as they start to hightail it up the ramp.


    *Random*

    The Miz and his fellow superstars turn around to see the Raw GM appear before them. He gets a nice reaction from the crowd.


    Kennedy


    Clearly it seems like everyone is ready to fight tonight here on Monday Night Raw!

    The crowd cheers.


    Kennedy


    I like to see this intensity! This is what Monday Night Raw is all about.

    Kennedy nods.


    Kennedy


    And it would be a shame for me to not take advantage of this intensity…

    (pauses)

    …which is why we’re going to have ourselves a little six man tag team action!

    The crowd cheers as Swagger and company look happy, the complete opposite of Miz and company.


    Kennedy


    It will be The Revival and Alberto Del Rio verse The Usos and Darren Young.

    The crowd cheers as Kennedy waves.


    Kennedy


    Welcome back Darren!

    (pauses)

    Now let’s get a referee out here!

    Kennedy motions towards the back and referee Rod Zapata appears. He nods at Kennedy and works his way down to the ring as Random plays again.


    Phillips


    What a way to kick off Monday Night Raw!

    JBL

    Nick Kennedy would have made Teddy Long proud!

    Phillips

    Six man tag action…next!

    *Commercial Break*

    Match 1: The Revival & Alberto Del Rio vs. The Usos & Darren Young

    Match Summary: Back from commercial break we see Darren Young facing off against Alberto Del Rio delivering a chop to the chest of Del Rio in the corner. Young takes a few steps back and goes barreling shoulder first missing Del Rio and hitting the steel post. Del Rio crawls and makes the tag to Wilder who immediately attacks Young with kicks and punches in the corner up to the five count. He then drags Young by his hair to the center of the ring before delivering a scoop slam, following that up with a jumping elbow to the heart. He goes for a pin and gets a two count. Wilder vines the leg of his opponent before tagging in his partner who connects with a jumping knee drop. Young tries to use help from the ropes instead gets his neck hung up on the second rope as Dawson’s knee is pressed up against the back of his head choking Darren Young. The ref’s count gets to four before Dawson breaks the hold and Del Rio delivers a right hand not seen by the ref who was distracted by one half of the tag team champions.

    Dawson tags in Wilder and once again we see the tag team expertise of the champions as they connect with a double suplex before Wilder floats over going for the pin and getting a two count. Wilder locks in a headlock wearing down his opponent even further. We see the Usos starting to clap hoping that gives Young the energy to get back into this match, which it does. Young delivers a few punches to the gut. He then quickly hooks the head of Wilder and plants him with a DDT.

    Both men are down and are in desperate need of a tag. Young makes a tag to Jey who comes flying in with a clothesline. He then delivers a flying forearm that knocks Dawson off the apron. He attempts to hit Del Rio who avoids it by falling off the apron. Del Rio taunts the crowd which gives Jey an opportunity to lower the top rope so his brother Jimmy can fly over it and land on Del Rio. That leaves Jey inside the ring with Wilder and he hits him with a superkick. Jey then begins to climb to the top turnbuckle and comes flying down with tremendous impact on his opponent hitting the SAMOAN SPLASH! He hooks both legs and gets a three count, while Jimmy is able to fend off Dawson from getting involved.

    Winner: The Usos & Darren Young

    Phillips

    With the odds even up, it finally seems the balance of power is tipping in the other direction.

    JBL

    If the Miz is watching he cannot be happy about this. Just another reason why he has a petition to get Nick Kennedy fired.

    The Usos get their hands raised by the referee and they are joined by Darren Young who is still feeling the effects of his first match back after a few months on the shelf. However, he seems to be okay as he smiles and gives daps to his teammates.


    *Announce Table*

    We see Tom Phillips and JBL both sharply dressed looking directly at the cameras.


    Phillips


    What a way to kick off Monday Night Raw. Still plenty of action to come, including the WWE Champion Chris Jericho and the number one contender to his WWE Championship Randy Orton, both in action.

    JBL

    Both in action and both men will be choosing who the other will be facing tonight.

    Phillips

    Tough decisions to be made, especially with so much talent on the Raw roster.

    (pauses)

    Also tonight John Cena is returning to Monday Night Raw, two weeks removed from the violent attack he suffered at the hands of Kevin Owens and the reformed Shield in which he fell victim to a triple powerbomb through the announce table.

    A match graphic appears on the screen showing John Cena and Zack Ryder on one side and Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose on the other.


    Phillips


    Tonight it will be John Cena teammate Zack Ryder taking on two thirds of the Shield Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.

    JBL

    More importantly Ambrose and Ryder are part of Team Owens, the greatest Survivor Series team ever assembled.

    *Backstage Area*

    Well speaking of Kevin Owens we see K.O. walking backstage which garners cheers from the crowd since we are in Canada. He stops and raises his eyebrows in surprise. He looks like he wants to say something, but he bites his tongue. The camera pans out and we see Stephanie McMahon which gets her heat from the crowd.


    Stephanie


    Kevin what a pleasure to see you, I didn’t think you would show.

    Owens

    This may be your show, but this is my home. These are my people. They’re not here to see the return of John Cena. They are here to see me!

    The crowd cheers as Owens has a cocky look on his face. Steph nods and begins to rub her chin.


    Stephanie


    Since they’re here to see you, let’s give them you, in a match with Dolph Ziggler…tonight!

    An equally cocky grin comes from the Raw commissioner as Owens seems very heated. The commish walks away as Raw cuts to a commercial break.


    *Commercial Break*

    Back from commercial break we see a beat-up Revival and Alberto Del Rio. The camera zooms out and we see a frustrated Tyler Breeze and Maryse. However, the main focus is The Miz who is pacing back and forth, stomping around for added dramatic effect.


    Miz


    This is madness! They think they can come after us. Do they know who they’re dealing with?!?!?

    (pauses)

    And Nick Kennedy! Who does he think he is?

    Miz pulls out the petition and slaps in anger displaying it in front of The Revival.


    Miz


    Now you understand why I had you guys sign it? Making a tag team match and interrupting an Emmy worthy Miz TV was just disgusting.

    Dawson who is showing signs of frustration gets right into the face of Miz.


    Dawson


    We signed that because you promised we’d still be WWE Tag Team Champions.

    Miz

    (angry)

    Earth to Dawson! You’re still tag team champions!

    Wilder

    And we also lost tonight and we don’t like to lose.

    Miz rips off his sunglasses and stares right into the eyes of Wilder. He seems like he is ready to strike.


    Miz


    Well next time make sure you get a shoulder up before three seconds.

    Wilder looks like he is ready to say something, but Dawson taps him on the shoulders and motions for them to leave. Miz burns a hole through both men as he watches them leave. The Revival leave the frame just as Nick Kennedy enters, watching the tag team champs leave. He shakes his head.


    Kennedy


    Seems like we may be closing in on a Hollywood breakup.

    Miz

    Like the paparazzi and tabloids don’t believe everything you see.

    Kennedy

    So everything is good?

    Miz

    (rolling his eyes)

    Psh…of course. We’re a few names closer to getting you fired from your duties as Raw General Manager now that The Revival signed.

    Kennedy

    (sarcastically)

    Excellent! Glad to see you guys on the same page, because you’re going to need it at Survivor Series.

    The crowd begins to buzz as all the members of the A-Listers circle Kennedy as they seem confused.


    Kennedy


    It’s going to be a five on five traditional Survivor Series elimination tag team match. It will be Team Miz, Miz, Tyler Breeze, Alberto Del Rio and The Revival taking on Team Swagger or is it Team Cesaro…..?

    (shrugs)

    Anyway the team of Jack Swagger, Cesaro, Darren Young and The Usos!

    The crowd cheers as Del Rio starts to rapidly talk in Spanish as Kennedy seems somewhat confused. Breeze looks equally frustrated while The Miz begins to ball up a fist.


    Kennedy


    Next week team captain you’re in a tag team match with Tyler Breeze as you guys take on Jack Swagger and Cesaro!

    Once again a loud pop from the crowd as Miz can’t do anything but continue to make a fist breaking the sunglasses in his hand.


    Kennedy


    And make sure you call all your movie star friends, because we’re live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles! I’m sure they want to see you perform up close and personal!

    Kennedy leaves with a smile on his face and begins to whistle a happy tune as Maryse tries to compose her husband’s pent up anger.


    *Ringside*


    *Break The Walls Down*

    The WWE Champion Chris Jericho appears soaking up the energy of the crowd. It is cheers from the crowd as the camera shows the Canadian faithful backing a fellow Canadian by bowing down to the “Best in the World”.


    JoJo


    This match is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada weighing two hundred and twenty four pounds…Chris Jericho!

    Phillips

    After hitting Randy Orton with a Codebreak-

    JBL

    …outta nowhere!

    Phillips

    Yes, Codebreaker outta nowhere, Nick Kennedy decided that there will be no more sneak attacks.

    JBL

    Where’s the fun in that?

    Phillips

    They’re still is fun to be had! Tonight not only is Jericho in action so is Randy Orton. Their opponents, will be chosen by the each other. Orton chooses Jericho’s opponent and vice-versa.

    JBL

    You stated earlier that there is so much talent in the Raw locker-room, however when you’re The Best in the World, you are the top talent.

    Jericho stands in the center of the ring arms out as the crowd continues to chant “Y2J” over and over again. However…..


    “WELLLLLLLLLLL It’s A Big Show”


    *Crank It Up*

    The crowd boos as The Big Show appears. He stares down Chris Jericho a man he is very familiar with.


    JoJo


    His opponent from Tampa, Florida weighing four hundred and fifty pounds…The Big Show!

    Phillips

    Chris Jericho has a tough task ahead of him. He may be the Best in the World, but this is the Largest Athlete in the World.

    JBL

    I’ll give it to Randy Orton, this is a great pick!

    Match 2: Chris Jericho vs. The Big Show

    Match Summary: Knowing he has a height and weight disadvantage as soon as the bell rings Jericho tries to leave but Big Show immediately brings him back into the ring. Big Show is very physical and is dominating the WWE Champion in the early going. However, the Best in the World will do anything to gain an advantage. Around the four minute mark, he calls time claiming to have a knee injury which causes the World’s Largest Athlete to lower his guard for only a moment which gives Jericho an advantage as he takes out the knee of Show before planting him with a DDT. From there Jericho continues to work on the knee he attacked. Still Big Show is not out. He would get back in it after Jericho climbed to the top rope. He attempts to hit Show with a high rope maneuver, but gets a slap right across his chest that rings out throughout the arena. Show stretches out that knee before hitting multiple moves on Jericho including a scoop slam followed by a leg drop.

    That leg drop only gets Show a two count. He then gets his big right hand cocked and ready for the knockout blow but Jericho ducks/cowards into the corner. Show charges in and Jericho gets both knees up into the jaw of Show stunning him for a few moments. Jericho then lifts himself to the second rope before JUMPING OFF THE ROPES HITTING A CODEBREAKER. The crowd is impressed with the innovation of that Codebreaker as he shoots the half and gets the three count.

    Winner: Chris Jericho

    Jericho is winded as he was put to the test tonight, but he seems relieved that is it over. The referee hands him his WWE Championship and he clutches it tight as he looks down at Big Show who is beginning to stir. The champion rolls out of the ring immediately.


    Phillips


    It wasn’t easy an easy but Chris Jericho walks away with a victory tonight.

    JBL

    That is why he is the best in the world Todd. He knew with the height disadvantage he had to cut the big man down and that is exactly what he did and what an innovative way to finish Show off with a Codebreaker. The Viper took his best shot, but Jericho was better.

    Phillips

    I wonder who Jericho will have face his Survivor Series opponent later tonight?

    *Backstage Area*

    We see The Brian Kendrick who gets some boos from the crowd approach the gorilla area. He walks up to a worker who has a headset on and is behind a switchboard.


    Kendrick


    You have my music cued up?

    The worker is silent and looks confused.


    Kendrick


    Do you not understand me? Are you one of those French Canadians?

    The crowd boos. The worker has a stack of papers.


    Worker


    I’m sorry Bri-

    Kendrick

    THE BRIAN KENDRICK!

    Worker

    Sorry… The Brian Kendrick, you don’t have a match tonight.

    Kendrick immediately grabs the stack of papers and furiously turns through them. He stops on a page and his eyes widen as he shakes his head in disbelief.


    Kendrick


    This must be a mistake.

    He closes the papers up and instead of handing the papers back to the worker he drops them on the ground. He begins to storm away as the scene cuts back to the announce table.


    *Announce Table*


    Phillips

    Clearly The Brian Kendrick is not happy about something…

    *Fight*

    To a huge ovation we see Smackdown Kevin Owens slowly walk out. He has a grin on his face as he is finally shown some love.


    Phillips


    …and we go from one unhappy Raw superstar to an unhappy Smackdown superstar.

    JBL

    He’s happy now! He gets to perform in front of his hometown fans. Listen to this crowd! These are his people. He’s ready to put on a show for them.

    Phillips

    Kevin Owens takes on Dolph Ziggler one on one….NEXT!

    *Commercial Break*

    Back from commercial break we see Owens pumping up the crowd as they continue to applaud him.


    *Here To Show The World*

    The people of Kevin Owens show no love to Dolph Ziggler as they boo him. He can sense the hostility but he continues his normal showboating ways atop the ramp. The camera shows Owens
    waving him down to the ring. Ziggler takes a moment and charges down the ramp sliding in and Owens pounces on him unloading with stomps to the back. The bell rings.


    Match 3: Kevin Owens vs. Dolph Ziggler


    Match Summary: Right out of the gate Kevin Owens quickly attacks Ziggler with a flurry of stomps. He then pulls Ziggler up by his hair and tosses him towards the ropes looking for a Pop-Up Powerbomb, but Ziggler hangs on to the ropes. Owens charges in and is sent up and over the top ropes by Ziggler. Ziggler takes a few beats to regain himself as the crowd boos. He goes to the outside and goes to grab Owens who grabs him by the tights and tosses him into the steel steps much to the delight of the crowd! Owens then grabs Ziggler tossing him back into the ring. He immediately follows and hits a senton before shooting the half only getting a two count.

    Owens quickly locks in a headlock. Ziggler tries to fight out of it but KO locks in more and more pressure. However, Ziggler shows resiliency as he gets himself back up to a vertical base. He delivers a few elbows to the gut causing the release of the hold. He goes towards the ropes, but Owens grabs the hair again and drags him down. He goes for another pin and gets a two count. Owens is red with anger as he has dominated this match and has not put away the Show-Off. He grabs Ziggler and goes for a suplex which is blocked. He goes for another one and it is blocked again. Ziggler delivers a few punches to the ribs releasing the suplex hold before grabbing Owens by his neck and hitting a neck breaker. Both men are down as the referee begins to count.

    The count gets to six as Owens grabs Ziggler who immediately pushes his hands away and hits a picture perfect dropkick. Owens falls to the mat and staggers towards the corner. Ziggler charges in and hits a Stinger Splash and follows it up with another standing neckbreaker. He then follows it up with a series of elbows, following it up with a huge jumping elbow. He shoots the half and only gets a two count. The crowd boos as Ziggler starts to tune up the band in the corner. Owens gets up and turns as Ziggler goes for a Superkick but it’s caught. Owens spins Ziggler around and delivers a kick to his gut and follows it up with a Package Side Slam. He again hooks both legs and again only gets a two count!

    Back and forth these two superstars go. Owens begins to scale the top rope. He steadies himself on the top rope and goes for a Bullfrog Splash and gets nothing but mat as Ziggler rolled out of the way. He holds his gut as he starts to work himself back up, but Ziggler hits a FAMEASSER! He turns Owens over going for the pin and gets a two count. Ziggler looks at the referee frustrated as he thought that was a three. He looks at Owens who is shaking the cobwebs away. Owens rolls towards the ropes as Dolph starts to stalk his opponent. Owens uses the ropes for leverage as Ziggler attempts A ZIG-ZAG BUT OWENS HANGS ONTO THE ROPES AND TOSSES ZIGGLER OFF. Ziggler slides along the mat. Owens turns to see the Show-Off charging towards him, he sidesteps it pushing him towards the ropes. Dolph hits the ropes coming back right into the grip of Owens who lands a perfect POP-UP POWERBOMB! The crowd goes wild as Owens shoots the half and gets the three count!

    Winner: Kevin Owens

    Owens looks at Ziggler one last time and a smirk appears on his face. The referee goes to raise his hand but Owens pulls it away. He immediately works his way towards the Raw announce table.


    Phillips


    Kevin Owens with a hard fought victory here tonight and-

    Owens

    (off-mic)

    I hope Nick Kennedy, Alex Maverick and John Cena were watching!

    (pauses and points to the ring)

    That is greatness right there!

    Phillips

    I’m sure they were!

    JBL

    (towards Kevin)

    They definitely were Kevin and if not I’ll give them a memo.

    Owens smiles and leaves the table as Phillips turns to JBL shaking his head.


    JBL


    That man is a star! It is a shame how he has been presented on Smackdown. If I was general manager he would be in the spotlight each and every week.

    Phillips

    Thank god you are not GM!

    JBL

    Shut-up Todd!

    *Backstage Area*

    Speaking of general manager, we see Raw’s GM Nick Kennedy in his office watching the TV screen as we see Ziggler starting to stir inside the ring. So he was watching. He looks slightly disappointed. He looks up and into the frame appears a very angry The Brian Kendrick. Kennedy’s night is not getting any better.


    Kendrick


    Are you joking with tonight’s show?

    (pauses)

    Why am I not on it, but she is?

    Kennedy

    Shouldn’t you be happier for you student?

    We now know that Eva Marie is the subject of this conversation.


    Kendrick


    No!

    (pauses and shakes his head)

    I mean…I am happy for her, but there is still a lot to for her to learn.

    Kennedy

    Like how to win?

    Kendrick doesn’t seem too pleased by that comment considering he has lost four weeks in a row now.


    Kennedy


    Listen…I keep hearing that Smackdown is the land of opportunity, well Raw is also a place of opportunity. So I’m giving her exactly that.

    Kendrick

    But you hear the fans. They chant “you can’t wrestle” over and over again.

    Kennedy

    That’s where you come in!

    (pauses and folds his arm)

    This is not up for debate.

    ???

    What’s not up for debate?

    Into the frame appears Eva Marie getting a ton of heat, probably the biggest of the night next to Dolph.


    Kendrick


    Uh…

    (points to Kennedy)

    He said I can’t be ringside tonight for your match.

    turns to Kennedy and makes a sad expression.


    Eva Marie


    Is that true?

    Kennedy

    Abso-

    Kendrick

    (cutting off Kennedy)

    ABSOLUTELY! He doesn’t want to see you succeed.

    Kennedy

    That’s actually the complete opposite of-

    Kendrick grabs Eva towards him.


    Kendrick


    I know you can do it without me tonight. He may not believe in you but I do.

    Kennedy

    I do-

    Kendrick

    (loudly)

    SHHHHH!

    (back towards Eva)

    I want you to prove not only him wrong, but the WWE Universe wrong.

    Kennedy (O.S.)

    I’m sorry did you just shush me?

    Kendrick continues completely ignoring Kennedy.


    Kendrick


    Can you do that for me?

    Eva has a confident smile on her face.


    Eva Marie


    Yes I can!

    Kendrick

    Louder!

    Eva Marie

    (louder)

    YES I CAN!

    Kendrick

    One more time….!

    Eva Marie

    (louder)

    YES I CAN!

    Kendrick

    Go out there and win!

    Eva is pumped as she runs off with a little extra pep in her step. Kendrick smiles waiting for her to leave before turning to Kennedy who doesn’t look too pleased.


    Kendrick


    Who’s her opponent tonight?

    Kennedy

    Nikki Bella.

    The crowd cheers as Kendrick face-palms.


    Kendrick


    She’s screwed.

    The crowd laughs as Raw goes to commercial break.


    *Commercial Break*


    *Time to Rise*

    The arena lights turn a shade of red and the crowd fills the arena with boos as out in a red robe appears Eva Marie. She may not have The Brian Kendrick by her side, but she still seems to be full of confidence. She stands tall atop the ramp blowing a kiss towards the crowd before walking down the ramp.


    JoJo


    Introducing first….from Los Angeles, California Evaaaa Marieeee!

    Phillips

    We wil find out of the lessons of The Brian Kendrick has clicked with Eva Marie as she has a huge task at hand as she is set to take on Nikki Bella.

    JBL

    Nikki Bella is the longest reigning Divas champion in history. If Eva Marie could pull off a victory it will be the biggest of her career.

    *You Can Look (But You Can't Touch)*

    The crowd boos Nikki Bella clearly knowing her relationship with John Cena (wait till later). Her music continues to play but there is no Nikki Bella in sight. The announcers and Eva Marie all seem confused.


    *Backstage Area*

    We cut to Tamina driving Nikki Bella into a steel gate. She then grabs Nikki by her long brunette hair and tosses her halfway across the backstage area as Nikki lands face first onto the concrete! The crowd cheers as Tamina is red with rage. She goes over to Nikki who is helplessly trying to crawl away. Instead Tamina turns her over and starts to dig her knee into the face of Nikki applying a lot of pressure. Nikki yelps in pain. Finally backstage personnel and referees are there to rip Tamina off of Nikki Bella. They force her back as Jamie Noble checks on Nikki.


    *Announce Table*

    We see Tom Phillips who looks worried as does JBL.


    Phillips


    What a malicious attack from Tamina.

    JBL

    Clearly Tamina is not happy with the way things went down last week in her match with Nikki last week.

    Eva Marie (O.S.)

    Excuse me!

    The camera cuts to Eva Marie in the ring who has JoJo’s microphone.


    Eva Marie


    I’m in this ring ready to compete.

    (towards the referee)

    Ring the bell and count-out Nikki Bella!

    The crowd boos as the referee hesitates. They argue back and forth a bit.


    JBL


    Eva is gonna win this match! What a victory for her!

    Phillips

    This is anything but a victory.

    JBL

    You may think that, but that’s what it is going to read in the record books.

    The referee goes to ring the bell but….


    *Stars in the Night*

    Well this is interesting as the WWE Universe cheers for Paige the WWE Women’s Champion. She walks and talks down the ramp.


    Paige


    Since you said you’re ready to compete and…

    (looks down at herself)

    …I’m ready to compete, why don’t you and I do battle. I could use the practice.

    The crowd cheers as the champion gets into the ring. Eva backs away as the referee cuts in front of her. Paige is a few inches away yelling at Miss. All Red Everything.


    *Random*

    The crowd cheers as Nick Kennedy quickly races out from behind the curtains.


    Kennedy


    Eva you came to me before Raw came on the air saying you wanted to make an impact. That means handling anything that comes your way.

    Eva Maria

    Did I say that…

    (pauses)

    …I meant-

    Kennedy

    So Eva you’re still in action as you take on Paige!

    Crowd cheers.


    Kennedy


    Start the match!

    JoJo immediately gets out of the ring. Paige hands her title to the time keeper and the referee checks on both competitors. Paige is ready, Eva is still trying to get out of the match, but it doesn’t matter as this one is underway!


    Match 4: Eva Marie vs. Paige


    Match Summary: In the first two minutes of the match Paige tries everything to get her hands on Eva Marie who continues to wrap herself in the ropes so the referee has no choice but to get in between the two ladies. At the two minute and thirty second mark Paige finally gets her hands on her opponent and starts to mount a flurry of offense, including multiple punches, headbutts and a nice snap suplex. She goes for a pin of the snap suplex and only gets a two. Paige grabs Eva and goes to lift her up to a vertical base when….

    *Real Deal*

    The crowd boos as Emma’s music hits. Paige tosses Eva to the side and starts to walk towards the ropes closest to the ramp. Emma with her sunglasses on and ring attire as well slowly walks down the ramp. Paige is in ready position, expecting a fight. Emma gets to the lip of the ramp and smiles before walking to her left around the ring towards the announce table. When Paige turns she is blasted with a clothesline from Eva Marie! Eva stomps away on her opponent before grabbing her by her wrestling trunks and tossing her out on the floor right near the feet of Emma. Emma looks down and laughs as Raw cuts to a commercial break.


    *Commercial Break*

    Back from the commercial break Eva Marie still has the upperhand as she had a camel clutch locked in on Paige. The crowd is trying to get behind Paige who is able to work herself back up to a vertical base. Eva jumps on her back and tries to lock in a sleeper, but Paige back peddles into the nearest corner slamming Eva against it. Eva has the hold still locked in but again Paige slams her into the corner. That releases the hold. Eva holds her back as Paige starts to cough trying to get air flowing back. The champion turns and receives a kick to the stomach. All Red Everything grabs the head of Paige and goes for Sliced Red #2 but Paige pushes her front first into the corner. The fiery red head bounces off the corner and Paige goes for a school-boy pin and only gets a two count. Both women are up and Paige delivers a desperation round house kick. Both women are down for a few moments before Paige crawls over draping her arm over Eva for the pin and gets a two count! The camera shows Emma who is standing tall next to the announce table with her arms crossed. Paige slowly gets back and gets Eva back up to a vertical base as well. She delivers a few forearms to stub her opponent. She runs towards the ropes and Emma trips her up. The ref didn’t see, but Paige felt it. The Survivor Series opponents are yelling at each other which gives Eva Marie the perfect opportunity to come from behind, school-boy pin Paige and get the three count grabbing onto the tights for leverage!


    Winner: Eva Marie


    JBL

    Upset of the year! Eva Marie just pinned the WWE Women’s Champion!

    Phillips

    With a little distraction from Emma here at ringside and a handful of tights.

    JBL

    The Brian Kendrick must be so proud! It’s a shame he was banned from ringside.

    Eva Marie gets very cocky and looks at the champion who is in disbelief. She blows a kiss her way and immediately Paige charges across the ring. Eva tries to run away but Paige has a hold of her and the crowd is going wild.


    JBL


    What a sore loser Paige is being!

    She has a few words with Eva but releases her when she is BLASTED FROM BEHIND BY EMMA. Eva runs off as the crowd fills with mostly boos but some “Evil Emma” chants. Emma is surly evil as you can tell in her eyes. She grabs Paige and hits a FISHERMAN DRIVER! The crowd boos as Emma stands tall over Paige. She then grabs the WWE Women’s Championship and raises it high in the air.


    Phillips


    Will this be the scene in Toronto in two weeks at Survivor Series?

    Emma looks at the title one more time before gently laying across the midsection of Paige before leaving the ring.


    *Backstage Area*

    The beautiful Renee Young is standing by. She smiles before talking.


    Young


    My guest at this time….John Cena!

    Boos from the WWE Universe and it is almost deafening. Still John Cena is all smiles as he turns to Renee and gives her a nod.


    Young


    John two weeks ago you were attacked by a reunited Shield. Tonight you take on Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose. We also know Kevin Owens is here tonight. How do you handle the situation tonight?

    Cena

    Renee…

    (pauses)

    …this isn’t all about me. It’s no longer my battle it’s ours.

    (excited)

    That’s why I have my favorite Broski fighting alongside me tonight!

    Into the frame walks Zack Ryder. Cena and Ryder pound each other before making it explode. Ryder then looks at Renee.


    Ryder


    After seeing what happened to my main broski two weeks ago, I knew I couldn’t let him go into this one all alone. I have John’s back and he has mine.

    Cena

    That’s why tonight I like our chances. Sure The Shield may be “reunited”, but can they trust each other? We already have seen them turn on each other once! Can you trust a captain who stabbed his best friend Sami Zayn in the back? What about Tye Dillinger? He may be a perfect ten, but is he the pefect friend?!?!?

    Ryder

    No way bro!

    Cena

    You mess with one of us; you mess with all of us. When I look at my team, I don’t see a bunch of individuals who each have their own agenda. I see one cohesive unit. I see a family and we prove that tonight!

    The crowd boos.

    Ryder

    Woo Woo Woo! You know it…..BRO!

    Cena and Ryder leave the frame as we cut to Randy Orton walking down the hallway.


    Phillips


    Chris Jericho was successful early in the night pulling out a victory against The Big Show. Who does he have taking on Randy Orton? Find out next!

    *Commercial Break*

    We see a graphic for Raw Talk with Renee Young with Nick Kennedy on one side. The other side features The Miz and Maryse, Eva Marie and The Brian Kendrick and Kevin Owens.


    Phillips


    Immediately following tonight’s Raw tune in to Raw Talk as Renee Young and Nick Kennedy sit down with The Miz and Maryse, Eva Marie and The Brian Kendrick and Kevin Owens.

    JBL

    I’ve seen Kevin Owens on Talking Smack and it is quite the treat.

    Phillips

    For who?

    JBL

    For everyone! Renee and Nick Kennedy should be honored to have such an esteemed guest on the show.

    Phillips

    Yes, I’m sure they will have their hands full.

    *Voices*

    The crowd is already buzzing the few moments before Randy Orton appears from behind the curtains. The crowd cheers as Orton stands tall atop the ramp.


    JoJo


    The following match is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first from St. Louis, Missouri weighing two hundred and forty five pounds….Randy Orton!

    Orton slowly walks down the ramp and fans ringside try to get his attention but it is too late as the Lone Wolf Baron Corbin takes down Randy Orton!


    Phillips


    What is Baron Corbin doing out here?!?!

    JBL

    Clearly he’s Randy Orton’s opponent!

    Corbin is red with anger especially after last week’s lost to Dolph Ziggler. He grabs Orton and tosses him into the barricade wall head first. The crowd boos as he begins to trash talk the fans. Orton tries to crawl away and Corbin delivers a kick to the ribs.


    Phillips


    I wonder if these we specific orders given by Chris Jericho?

    JBL

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Corbin is doing this all on his own. Remember he lost to Randy a few weeks ago, thus losing the title of number one contender to the WWE Championship.

    Orton is reeling as he gets up. Corbin grabs him around the waist as Orton tries his best to deliver forearms to the back. They have no effect whatsoever as Corbin drive The Apex Predator back first into the ring apron. He then tosses Orton into the ring as the crowd continues to boo. The Lone Wolf makes his way around the ring towards the time keeper’s area. He screams at them to move so he can grab a steel chair.


    Phillips


    We have seen this before.

    JBL

    Yes, we have! It has been Corbin’s weapon of choice in recent weeks.

    Corbin folds the chair and slides it into the ring as Orton continues to favor his back. Corbin climbs onto the apron and is halfway through the ropes where out of nowhere Orton delivers a kick to the chest! The crowd cheers as Orton hooks Corbin’s head and plants him with a huge second rope hung DDT!


    JBL


    That’s not good! The Viper is ready to strike!

    That he is! Orton slithers away from Corbin pushing the chair out of the ring. He is slamming on the mat and the fans know what is coming. You can hear “RKO” chants throughout the Bell Centre. Baron stands up….RK-NO! CORBIN PUSHED OFF AND IS IMMEDIATELY HIGH TAILING IT! HE IS OUT OF THE RING AND UP THE RAMP!


    Phillips


    Oh c’mon! We want to see this fight!

    JBL

    Corbin thought the best of it and got out of there.

    Phillips

    Lone Wolf, more like scared puppy!

    JBL

    I dare you to say that to his face Tom! Let me know how that works out for you.

    Orton is seething as Corbin looks equally angry as he knows he almost fell victim to another RKO. A match graphic then appears with John Cena and Zack Ryder on one side. The other is Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.


    Phillips


    We heard John Cena earlier. He just doesn’t have a team, he has a family. Well tonight he and Zack Ryder face a huge test as they take on Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose in tonight’s main event which is next!

    *Commercial Break*

    *Backstage Area*

    In a random section of the arena we see an up-close shot of a hockey net. It pans out and we see The New Day each with hockey sticks in their hands. Kofi has the puck and he passes it to Big E. Big E. does a slow handle of the puck and nearly loses it.He saucers it over to Xavier’s stick and he nearly loses it. However he gains control of it. He stares at the net and goes to shoot and completely misses!

    Kingston & Big E.


    BOOOOOOO!

    Woods slams his stick in anger.


    Woods


    This sport is so hard. No wonder why not many of us play.

    Big E.

    Black people?

    Woods slowly turns and shakes his head in disgust.


    Woods


    Americans….

    The crowd laughs.


    Kingston


    It’s not very popular with Jamaicans neither.

    Woods

    Especially fake Jamaicans.

    Big E.

    Got’em!

    Kofi makes a face as Woods starts to laugh. Kofi then playfully tosses a puck at Woods who catches it before drops it. He takes another shot and it is slowly rolling towards the net, but it gets kick out by a stylish black shoe.

    Woods


    Mannnnnn!

    Into the frame appears Jack Gallagher who doesn’t seem too pleased.


    Big E.


    I didn’t know hockey was popular with British people. I thought their game was soccer.

    Kingston

    You mean football.

    Big E.

    No I mean soccer.

    Kingston and Big E. start to bicker. This only makes Gallagher angrier. Finally Gentleman Jack unleashes fury no longer showing patience.


    Gallagher


    ENOUGH!

    The New Day jump. Gallagher pulls out an umbrella and points it towards The New Day and stands like a fencer.


    Gallagher


    I challenge you to a duel!

    The New Day all look at each other.


    New Day


    Who? Who? Who?

    The crowd all echoes “who” with the New Day, but they are immediately interrupted.


    Gallagher


    All three of you, next week on Monday Night Raw.

    Kingston

    Em…

    Big E.

    We know you’re new around here…

    Woods

    Are you sure you want to do that. After all we are former…

    (rotates hips)

    Woods

    W-W-E World Tag Team Chaaaammmpiooonnnnss!

    The crowd cheers.


    Gallagher


    I don’t care if you kissed the Queen!

    Kingston

    …wuuutt?

    Gallagher

    Last week you…

    (rubs his chin)

    …I believe you Americans called it “punked” me last week.

    Big E.

    Well maybe in the early 2000’s we called it that.

    Gallagher

    Nonetheless…the first rule of being a gentleman, is never let anyone treat you anything less than one. Last week you treated me like a fool and that is why I challenge you to this duel!

    Kingston

    Hey that was a pretty good rhyme!

    Woods

    Lil Jack G in da house!

    Gallagher

    Next week the fun and games are over. I’m going to teach you how to be formal and proper.

    Jack storms off as The New Day seem very confused. Finally Kingston shrugs and drops another puck as The New Day continues practicing on their hockey.


    *Announce Table*


    Phillips

    Looks like we’re gonna have a “duel” next week.

    JBL

    He may dress smart, but that wasn’t a smart move from Jack Gallagher.

    *Sierra…Hotel…India…Echo…Lima…Delta…SHIELD*

    *Second Coming*

    Some shock throughout the arena as the old Shield opening is heard. After a few moments out we see Dean Ambrose appear and a few steps behind him Seth Rollins. The crowd cheers as both men stand side by side and put out their fists before nodding at each other. They then walk down the ramp.


    JoJo


    This match is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first representing Team Owens…Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose!

    Phillips

    Cena said that his team is tight like a family, which may be true, but it seems like Team Owens is just as tight…at least Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose.

    JBL

    Coming out to their old Shield intro, I love it! These two have clashed for the better part of a year but now they have one goal in mind; defeating Team Cena, but more importantly defeat and take out John Cena.

    *Radio*

    Normally a crowd favorite Ryder is welcomed by boos. Clearly his alignment with John Cena does not fair well for him. He does his fist pump atop the ramp and screams “WOO…WOO…WOO” but it is drained out by the boos.


    JoJo


    Their opponents…first from Long Island, New York weighing two hundred and twenty four pounds…representing Team Cena…Zack Ryyyderrrr!

    He waits atop the ramp and the crowd continues to boo.


    *The Time Is Now*

    The John Cena sucks sing-a-long can be heard in full force inside the bell arena. Cena ignores the boos as he looks at Ryder and the two fist bump atop the ramp before running down it.


    JoJo


    His partner from West Newbury, Massachusetts weighing two hundred and fifty one pounds….he is the captain of Team Cena….John Cennnna!

    Phillips

    This place is rocking and normal fan favorites are now enemies.

    JBL

    John Cena whether you love him or hate him is one of the greatest here in the WWE. As for Zack Ryder…

    Phillips

    …as for Zack Ryder…?

    JBL

    I can’t think of anything positive. Let’s just leave it at that.

    Main Event: Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose vs. Zack Ryder & John Cena

    Match Summary: It would be the captain taking on Seth Rollins to start off the match. Cena would go to his signature moves early including the running flying shoulder blocks (x2), the spin-out powerbomb, and Five Knuckle Shuffle. Four minutes in and Rollins already finds himself on the shoulder of Cena who is looking for an Attitude Adjustment, but Rollins is able to slide off and quickly scurries over to his partner and makes the tag. Ambrose seems ready to try his luck against Cena, but it is Ryder who is chomping at the bit and wants a tag. He gets his wish as Cena tags him in. While you admire Ryder’s heart in wanting to get involved in the match, him getting the tag completely stops the momentum that Cena created.

    For the next couple of minutes the two members of Shield pick apart and dissect the Long Island native. It’s hard to watch if you’re a fan of Ryder, however the Montreal crowd loves it. Rollins shows-off his great move set such as a Slingblade, Falcon Arrow and a Springboard high knee. Ambrose’s offense is not as pretty as he just looks to inflict pain with hard punches that would impress Floyd Mayweather and stomps that would make Stone Cold Steve Austin jealous. With the Ambrose in the ring he tags Rollins. Both men grab Ryder and showcase him to Cena saying “this on you”. Cena looks like he is ready to tear them both apart if he gets the chance. They both grab Ryder by the arm and whip him into the ropes. They go for a double clothesline but he ducks it. He bounces off the opposite ropes and connects with a dropkick that hits both men knocking them down to the mat. Cena comes alives and stomps on the steel steps trying to will his teammate to their corner. Ryder crawls towards his corner and Ambrose and Rollins try to get back up to a vertical base. Ryder is inches away as Cena is stretching as far as he can for a tag. RYDER IS SO CLOSE…..

    *FIGHT*

    The crowd explodes! The fifteen time World Champion turns his attention to the ramp and actually drops down from the apron and stands at the bottom of the ramp in ready position waiting for The Prizefighter. Inside the ring Ryder is still reaching out, but this time to a vacant corner. This gives Dean Ambrose a chance to grab Ryder, getting him to a vertical base before kicking him in the gut and hits DIRTY DEEDS! He rolls out of the ring and knocks down Cena from behind and his partner makes the pin and gets the three count! No Kevin Owens in sight!

    Winner: Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose

    The crowd cheers as Ambrose joins Rollins inside the ring to get their hands raised by the referee.


    JBL


    Genius plan from Kevin Owens!

    Phillips

    John Cena expected an attack from Kevin Owens. It was too good to be true.

    JBL

    Your damn right it was. Maybe this is some retribution for what Cena did a few weeks ago on Smackdown when his music hit and he distracted Kevin Owens causing him to lose.

    Phillips

    I’m sure we will hear more about it a few moments on Raw Talk.

    Cena regains himself and sees his favorite broski holding his head. He rolls in the ring as Ambrose and Rollins leave. Cena looks down on his partner checking on him. John Cena looks disappointed in himself and can be seen mouthing “this is my fault”. Cena then stares daggers at Rollins and Ambrose who are halfway up the ramp and have their fist down low in signature Shield style as Raw goes off the air.

    Raw Talk

    November 7th 2016

    Light up the Sky plays before we see Renee Young and Nick Kennedy already with a guest beside them and that is none other than Kevin Owens, who is smiling from ear to ear.


    Young


    Welcome to another edition-

    Owens

    Was that beautiful?

    Young

    Erm-

    Owens

    What do you know? You wouldn’t know beautiful if it smacked you in the face.

    Kennedy

    That’s not nice. Renee is the definition of beautiful.

    Owens

    (shocked)

    Really….?

    (pauses)

    Don’t you have a girlfriend? I’m sure Emma really wants to hear you complimenting another girl.

    (rolls his eyes)

    And I thought Alex Maverick was an idiot….

    (pauses)

    …oh wait! He is!

    Kevin laughs.


    Young


    Anyway this is Raw Talk.

    Owens

    Wrong Renee! This is the Kevin Owens show!

    Kennedy and Renee roll their eyes.


    Owens


    I’m Kevin Owens. Smackdown SUPERSTAR, People Magazine’s 2016 Sexiest Man Alive, proud Canadian…

    (rubs his chin and smiles)

    …oh yeah and the man who is going to beat John Cena and his team of stooges at Survivor Series in two weeks.

    Kennedy

    And I thought I was cocky.

    Owens

    It’s not cockiness, it’s confidence, something you lack. The only reason Emma is with you is because she knows you’re loaded.

    Kennedy rubs his eyes clearly agitated.


    Kennedy


    (sighs)

    I knew this was a terrible decision.

    Owens

    This was a great decision. You know ratings triple when I’m on Talking Smack?!?! This show definitely needs me on tonight. I mean who else do you have? Eva Marie? People don’t want to see her wrestle; I doubt they want her to open her mouth, unless she’s on her kn-

    Young

    (loud)

    AND ON THE THAT NOTE….

    Owens laughs at himself as Kennedy is embarrassed. Clearly the PG rating is thrown out the window tonight.


    Young


    …can we talk about what just happened?

    Owens

    Sure! Clearly your production trucks are just as bad here on Raw as they are on Smackdown. Why would they play my music?

    Kennedy

    So you’re claiming you had nothing to do with that?

    Owens

    HOW?!?! I’ve been here with you the past ten minutes, watching the main event.

    Young

    (to herself)

    Ten minutes too long.

    K.O. slaps the table and rolls his eyes.


    Owens


    How totally unprofessional…

    Renee for the first time ever seems red with anger.


    Young


    I’m unprofessional? You’re acting like a jackass.

    K.O. opens his mouth and covers it in shock.


    Owens


    Renee this is a PG show. My kids watch this show!

    Young

    Well your kids are probably embarrassed by you.

    Owens

    (towards Kennedy)

    You’re going to let her talk to me like that?

    Kennedy

    You started this…

    Owens

    Ya know…I actually miss Michael Cole.

    (low)

    Never thought I would say that.

    Young

    If you miss him go back to Smackdown and stay there!

    Owens

    You would like that, wouldn’t you?

    Renee nods so much she looks like a bobblehead.


    Owens


    Well Blondie bad news, I’m going to be here next week…

    (pauses)

    …then the week after that to celebrate my victory over John Cena and his “family”.

    (rolls his eyes)

    They’re as much of a family as the Wyatts.

    Owens is fired up as Renee and Kennedy exchange frustrated looks at each other. Kennedy then coughs.


    Kennedy


    Anything else you want to add?

    Owens

    Great win by Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose. Also shout-out to the production truck guy, he must be a Canadian because all of Canada hates John Cena as you guys could tell tonight.

    He looks at Renee and winks.


    Owens


    See you next week.

    He leaves and Renee gags in her mouth.


    Young


    I hope he never comes to Raw on a full time basis.

    Kennedy

    Never say never!

    Her eyes widen in disbelief.


    Kennedy


    What? He’s talented, one of the best in the business. I’m just saying…

    Young

    Don’t say he’s best for business.

    Kennedy

    No…no…no! That’s the old regime. I’m just saying even though he can be a pompous jackass, he backs in up in the ring. He had an impressive win tonight against Dolph Ziggler…

    (pauses)

    …and I’m a huge fan of Dolph!

    Young

    Speaking of impressive win in the women’s division Eva Marie pulled off a victory against current WWE Women’s Champion Paige. She is joining us right now.

    Right on cue Eva and The Brian Kendrick get all hooked up and take seats to the left of Kennedy.

    Kennedy


    Renee I think your bias is showing.

    He laughs.


    Young


    (taken back)

    Bias? What bias?

    Kennedy

    You’re both on Total Divas!

    Eva Marie

    Because that’s what we are…divas!

    Young

    YAAASSSSSS! You got that right girl!

    The two girls laugh as Kennedy rolls his eyes.


    Kennedy


    Congrats on your win tonight Eva. It was quite impressive.

    Eva Marie

    I wish I could take all the credit but-

    Kendrick

    But I can!

    Eva stops and turns to tilting her head sideways. Kendrick clears his throat.


    Kendrick


    You heard Kevin Owens people say she can’t wrestle and a few years ago that was true…

    Eva Marie

    (offended)

    Is there a “but” coming?

    Kendrick

    …butttttt, thanks to me she is now Miss All Red Everything and the future of this division.

    Kendrick looks proud and pats himself on the back…literally.


    Young


    I find that interesting that you’re taking all of the credit, considering you weren’t even out there tonight to mentor her during her match.

    Kendrick

    Right…

    Kennedy

    And you haven’t won a match in like a month, maybe more.

    Kendrick

    …I’m sorry is there a question here?

    Renee shrugs and begins to shuffle her papers.


    Young


    I’m just saying maybe Eva doesn’t need you. After all she did pin the current WWE Women’s Champion.

    Kennedy

    Obviously the biggest win of her career.

    Eva starts to nod and looks confident.


    Kendrick


    Whoa..whoa…whoa! I’m sorry, she doesn’t need me. Last time I checked one win doesn’t make a champion overnight.

    (rubs his head)

    Remind me again how many years of wrestling experience you have between you two?

    He points to Renee and Nick.


    Kennedy


    Well I was the first ever double champion in XWE.

    Kendrick

    (confused)

    XWE?!?!?

    Kendrick slams the table and shakes his head in frustration.


    Kendrick


    Nevermind. Yes, Eva picked up a huge victory tonight, the best of her career, but she needs me. There are still plenty of notes she needs to take. Instead of people chanting “she can’t wrestle”, I want them to chant “you can wrestle”.

    Young

    (chuckles)

    No one has ever chanted that before!

    Kendrick

    Well they will now once I’m done with her.

    Renee is trying to hold back her
    laughter as The Brian Kendrick still has a very serious look on his face. There are a few moments of awkward silence. Finally….


    Kennedy


    So what’s next for Eva Marie?

    Eva Marie

    That’s an excellent question!

    Kennedy smiles and blushes a little.


    Eva Marie


    I think I’m in line for a championship opportunity…

    (pauses and turns to Kennedy)

    …after your girlfriend of course.

    Young

    You two could be going against each other for that title if she wins at Survivor Series.

    Eva Marie

    That’s what I’m hoping for and even if she loses I think by what happened tonight, I’m not intimidated by Paige.

    Kendrick

    We’re not intimidated by Paige and not by Emma either.

    Kennedy

    Well....Eva…

    (looks at Kendrick)

    …just Eva...next week you will be in six women tag team action with Emma and Tamina as you ladies take on Bayley, Nikki Bella and Paige.

    Kendrick

    Oh she’ll…

    Eva Marie

    (cutting off Kendrick)

    I’ll be ready!

    The Man With A Plan was not too pleased that he was interrupted. Eva doesn’t see it though as she blows a kiss towards Kennedy and Renee before leaving with Kendrick.


    Young


    Next week is turning to be an action packed Raw.

    Kennedy

    It is the last Raw before Survivor Series, got to do it big!

    Young

    Three matches already confirmed-

    Kennedy

    And I have one more!

    Young leans forward in her chair ready to hear the news.


    Kennedy


    It will be Baron Corbin vs. Randy Orton in a No DQ match!

    Young

    Really putting the Viper at a disadvantage giving him a no disqualification match six days before he challenges for the WWE Championship!

    Kennedy

    That’s what I told Randy, but he insisted on doing it. He’s not a fan of Baron Corbin and the way things unfolded tonight. He’s not looking to tip-toe around this. He wants to face it head on.


    Young


    Will Chris Jericho have a match?

    Kennedy

    Renee I can’t give away all of my booking decisions.

    The two share a laugh. All of a sudden a mocking laugh can be heard loudly off-screen and the two look off-screen. Kennedy doesn’t look too pleased. Into the frame appears The Miz with his wife Maryse.


    Miz


    Yes…laugh it up!

    (pauses)

    Did you forget that you had a leak a few weeks ago?

    Kennedy looks stunned.


    Owens (V.O.)


    Good one Miz!

    Kevin Owens comes back into the picture.


    Young


    (sarcastically)

    Great! Kevin is back!

    Owens

    (towards Miz)

    Mind if I join you?

    Miz

    Only if you sign my petition to get Nick Kennedy fired.

    Kennedy

    That’s still a thing?!?!

    Miz

    Of course it is! You are still employed.

    Kennedy

    So are you…?

    K.O. slams the table and points his finger at Kennedy.


    Owens


    You be nice to him. He’s the United States Champion!

    Miz

    Thank you Kevin.

    Kevin nods before signing the petition.


    Owens


    Of course being United States Champion is not better than being a Canada Champion…

    (pauses)

    …right Maryse?

    Maryse nods which Miz is not too happy about, but she gives him a kiss on the cheek which fades away his anger.


    Owens


    How come there has never been a Canada Championship?

    Young

    It doesn’t ring off the tongue easy…

    Owens

    No one asked you!

    Young

    Calm down! I’m a fellow Canadian.

    Miz

    Can we stop talking about Canada for a second and talk about me?

    The trio of Canadians doesn’t seem too happy about that.


    Kennedy


    Sure-

    Owens

    Sure Miz! What do you want to talk about?

    Miz

    Let’s talk about how I have a traditional Survivor Series elimination tag team match against two guys I already beat.

    Owens

    I already beat John Cena multiple times and I have that same match against him.

    Miz

    Yeah…well I’m not begging for attention. People beg for attention from me.

    Owens

    Not JBL. He wanted you as far away from him as possible.

    Miz

    At least I was in the big leagues, where were you, some high school performing for twenty people?

    Owens

    It was fifty!

    Maryse

    Guys…why are we fighting? We should be focusing on other things.

    Owens

    She’s got a point!

    Miz

    Yeah…like how Nick Kennedy is an awful general manager.

    Owens

    And so is Alex Maverick!

    Miz

    You should make a petition for him!

    Owens

    I may do that. Thanks Miz for that idea.

    Miz

    No problem!

    Young

    This show is getting out of hand!

    Miz

    No this show is getting ratings. Thanks to myself and Kevin Owens.

    Owens

    That’s right!

    (pauses)

    You want to grab a beer after this?

    Miz

    If they have American beer…sure.

    Owens

    Of course they do!

    Miz

    Sounds good to me!

    Miz unhooks the microphones from him and Maryse looks surprised. He starts to unhook her microphone as well. The A-List couple starts to stand from their seats as Kevin Owens turns to the camera.


    Owens


    This has been the Kevin Owens show. Thank you and good night Montreal!

    Kevin leaves the set.


    Young

    What just happened-

    The lights go out!

    Kennedy


    Well thanks to Kevin Owens we have no more lights.

    A few moments pass and the lights turn back on.


    Young


    We’re back on!

    Kennedy

    So to address what The Miz was talking about...

    Young

    Yes please get to that. End this show on a high note.

    Nick smiles.


    Kennedy


    So basically since he won the United States Championship, The Miz has always had the numbers. Even with his petition he has the numbers. With that said, I’m just trying to even the odds and this is the best way possible.

    Young

    I think that is going to be a great match and both sides a pretty even.

    Kennedy

    Yes, very even. Also great to see Darren Young back!

    Young

    Absolutely! He got knocked out the first Raw after the draft, now he has a chance to make a statement at Survivor Series.

    Kennedy

    Everyone on Team Swag-

    (pauses)

    Team Cesa-

    Young

    Team Swagsaro.

    Kennedy

    Right! Team Swagsaro have a huge opportunity to make a statement, especially if they can knock off not only the United States Champion but the WWE Tag Team Champions as well.

    Young

    With that said we are running out of time. I guess…thanks to all our guests, even if they were rude and disruptive.

    Kennedy

    Hopefully next week we can reel in the show like we normally do. Tonight we got a little sidetracked.

    Young

    It ended well.

    Kennedy

    (smiling)

    That we did!

    Young

    With that said…goodnight from Montreal! See you next week live from Los Angeles!

    Re: Amrocky25 & RatedR31 Presents WWE: We Are The WWE Universe

    Smackdown – 11/08/16

    PHILIPS ARENA

    ATLANTA, GA

    WWE “Then, Now, Forever” opening video plays.
    **Recap of Last Week’s Smackdown**

    We cut to the opening of Smackdown last week. Alex Maverick, Shane McMahon and The Club are in the ring while the Wyatt Family is on the stage.

    McMahon

    For the last few weeks, you two groups have gone at it, leading up to last week where we saw an all out battle. Now we can see that you guys have disdain for one another and this needs to be settled once and for all. Survivor Series has a long history of two groups of people settling their differences. Rivals going head to head in an all out elimination style match to truly determine who is the better team.

    Maverick

    So at Survivor Series, we will see the final battle in this war. It will be The Club verses the Wyatt Family in a 4 on 4 Traditional Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination Match!

    The crowd cheers loudly for the decision and starts a "YES!" chant. The Club nod their heads, approving of the decision while the Wyatts stand there with sadistic stares on their faces.

    Wyatt

    While my family and I will take great pleasure in tearing down the Club...

    Wyatt stops, looks up and points at Maverick and McMahon.

    We have an issue. You see... what you gave me is not what I desire. What I desire, and what I've desired all along is the “great power.” You know what I want. And unless I get it, then destruction will continue to reign over Smackdown. You've been warned!

    We cut to later in the night where Luke Harper and Erick Rowan are in the ring while Slater Gator makes their way down, very tentatively.

    Ranallo

    Slater wanted one last shot to prove Slater Gator should be a team. If they could somehow pull off the upset, I’d say that’s more than enough to prove they belong as a team.

    Harper and Rowan beat up Slater. O'Neil drops down from the apron and walks away up the ramp. Slater looks on with a confused and upset look on his face. Harper and Rowan pick Slater up, grab him but the throat and deliver the DOUBLE CHOKESLAM! Rowan goes for the cover...1...2...3!

    Ranallo

    Heath Slater never stood a chance. It was like sending a lamb to the slaughter.

    Wyatt gets into the ring with the rest of the family by his side.

    Wyatt

    The powers that be are ignorant. They think they can satisfy us with a few sacrifices.

    Wyatt points down at Slater.

    They think they can please us with a battle with The Club. Well make no mistake about it... at Survivor Series my family and I will win the battle…

    Wyatt pauses and puts his finger up and shakes it back and forth.

    But the war will not be over… We will take out anyone and everyone, including the Club until I get what I want... NO... what I DESERVE!

    Wyatt looks down at a hurt and helpless Slater.

    And we'll start with him!

    Wyatt quickly drops the microphone and picks up Slater by the head. Wyatt has a crazy look in his eyes as the Wyatt Family looks on with sadistic looks on their faces.

    Wyatt

    Off microphone

    It's nothing personal. You can thank Alex Maverick and Shane McMahon for this.

    Just as Wyatt is about to lift Slater up to his feet, we see Alex Maverick run out onto the stage frantically.

    Maverick

    BRAY! STOP! He has nothing to do with this.

    Wyatt looks up at Maverick with a sadistic smirk on his face.

    Let Heath go. This is between you and me.

    Wyatt lets go of Slater, who drops to the mat. Slater, who is still hurt, tries to roll out of the ring, but Strowman stops him and puts a foot on his back so he can't move.

    Wyatt

    He'll stay for now. His fate is in your hands. Heath Slater will be another sacrifice just like Sami Zayn was... Just like the Club will be and just like everyone else will be until I get the “great power!”

    Maverick

    Security! Get out here now!

    Maverick waves for security and they come out onto the stage.

    Wyatt

    I wouldn't do that. If you or anyone for that matter takes one step closer, Braun Strowman will put all his weight on Heath Slater, crushing his ribs in seconds.

    Maverick seems overly frustrated and tells security to back off.

    Maverick

    You know I stood up for you at the draft. I thought you had so much promise. But you've been nothing but a nightmare!

    Wyatt

    I've had enough of waiting for my opportunity to get what should have been mine for a long time! And now I'm not asking... I'm telling you to give it to me! NOW!

    Maverick stands their frustrated trying to figure out what to do. Wyatt grows impatient and signals towards Strowman to hurt Slater.

    Maverick

    STOP! Ok you want a title match so badly? At Survivor Series, if your team wins, then Bray Wyatt, you get a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship!

    Wyatt smirks as he likes the decision.

    But if you lose...

    Maverick pauses and gets very intense.

    Then so help me God, you'll be gone from Smackdown... FOR GOOD!

    The crowd is stunned for a second by the announcement and then goes crazy for it with "YES!" chants. Wyatt has a serious and evil look on his face.

    Wyatt

    I assure you... my family and I will emerge victorious and I will capture the great power. And God won't help you get rid of me...

    Wyatt holds out his arm.

    Because you're looking at him!

    Wyatt instructs Strowman to get Slater up and pass him to him, which Strowman does. Wyatt gets Slater in position, stares down Maverick with an evil grin on his face, kisses Slater's forehead and delivers a nasty SISTER ABIGAIL! Wyatt kneel down by a fallen Slater and stares up at Maverick with his hands out.

    Wyatt

    Off microphone

    FOLLOW THE BUZZARDS!

    We cut to Talking Smack after Smackdown. We see Michael Cole, Shane McMahon and an angry Alex Maverick at the table.

    Cole

    If the Wyatts do lose, how do you plan to get rid of him

    Maverick

    It doesn’t matter if we need to trade him to Raw or fire him… Bray Wyatt will be gone from Smackdown permanently if he loses. He brought this upon himself and left me no choice. He wants his opportunity? Well I just gave him a chance to legitimately earn his opportunity at the World Title.

    Maverick looks at the hard camera and it zooms into him.

    So Bray Wyatt… your whole world is truly in your hands now. Will you Feast…

    Maverick pauses and gets a very serious look on his face.

    Or Famine!

    The camera keeps the shot on Maverick’s serious face as the shot fades out.

    **End Smackdown Recap**
    “Back From The Dead” by Skillet plays as the Smackdown opening video plays.

    Pyro goes off in the arena and the fans are all on their feet cheering and going crazy.

    Ranallo

    Welcome ladies and gentlemen to Smackdown! We are live here in Atlanta, GA and only two weeks away from Survivor Series. And Corey, what a night we have!

    Graves

    Yes we do Mauro! Tonight, I sit down with The Club, all four members, for an exclusive interview. I really get into the reformation, their match against the Wyatts and even the tension we’ve seen in the past. You won’t want to miss that!

    Ranallo

    I’m looking forward to that. And after a clean sweep last night on Raw, Team Cena looks to get some redemption tonight when the high-flying Neville takes on “The Perfect Ten” Tye Dillinger and the Georgia native Apollo Crews takes on “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns. That all goes down tonight!

    “Hellfire” plays and out comes the World Tag Team Champions Rusev and Sheamus, led by Lana. They make their way down to the ring as the crowd boos loudly.

    Hamilton

    The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, being accompanied by Rusev and Lana, from Dublin, Ireland, weighing in at 267 pounds, he is one-half of the World Tag Team Champions, "The Celtic Warrior" Sheamus.

    Graves

    I can’t think of a better way to kick things off than with the World Tag Team Champions, of course accompanied by the smart, beautiful, powerful Lana!

    Ranallo

    Sheamus will be in one-on-one action here tonight, but we learned last week that in two weeks at Survivor Series, Rusev and Sheamus will defend their World Tag Team Championships against Enzo Amore and Big Cass.

    Graves

    And I for one can’t wait to see Enzo Amore get his head kicked off by either of these great champions.

    Sheamus, Rusev and Lana get into the ring. Lana grabs a microphone and the crowd is still booing loudly.

    Lana

    Everyone rise and admire your World Tag Team Champions, "The Bulgarian Brute" Rusev and "The Celtic Warrior" Sheamus!

    The crowd boos loudly as Rusev and Sheamus hold their titles high and let out a battle cry. Lana starts clapping but then stops and looks disgusted at the booing crowd.

    How dare you boo these great men? Show them some respect.

    The crowd boos even louder.

    Typical Americans. I should expect no less from you. You'd rather boo your champions, the most dominant and skilled teams in the world just because they are foreign, and yet you cheer a babbling moron like Enzo Amore and his sidekick Big Cass.

    The crowd cheers for Enzo and Cass.

    You see... even when I insult them and all of you, you still cheer. This is why you need us to be your champions of the world. To show all of you what non-Americans, you know... respectful, grateful people look like!

    The crowd boos as Lana gestures towards herself and the Tag Team Champions. Just then, “SAWFT Is A Sin” plays. Lana, Rusev and Sheamus look over angrily as Enzo Amore and Big Cass come out to a loud cheering crowd. Enzo runs around the stage and dances a bit before lifting up his microphone. Enzo looks out to the crowd and the whole crowd says his whole opening with him.

    Enzo
    My name is Enzo Amore, and I am a certified G and a bonafied stud, and you can’t teach that.
    Enzo points at Cass.

    And this right here, this is Big Cass, and he’s seven foot tall, and you can’t teach that.

    Cass

    Off the microphone

    Hit ‘em with it Zo.

    Enzo

    Bada boom, realist guys in the room. How you doin’?!

    The crowd starts chanting “How you doin’!” as Enzo dances.

    Lana, you seem to talk a lot of trash about me and Big Cass and our great home of America. Well here in the USA, respect isn't given, it's earned. And yous...

    Enzo pauses for a second.

    Well let me put it this way. If you three had a dime for every ounce of respect you've earned...

    Enzo pauses and puts up an O with his hand.

    You'd have ZERO DIMES!

    The crowd cheers as Lana, Rusev and Sheamus don't look too pleased. Enzo dances around a bit as the crowd is now cheering "How You Doin'?!"

    Lana

    You have proved my point. You disrespect us because we’re foreign and you're jealous of us because my dominant men are the World Tag Team Champions... something you two will never accomplish.

    The crowd boos as Enzo gets a bit more serious.

    Enzo

    You can make all the comments you want, but in two weeks, your whipping boys put those titles on the line against the realest guys in the room.

    The crowd cheers as Enzo gets more passionate.

    And we'll be damned if Big Cass and I don't walk out as the new World Tag Team Champions!

    The crowd cheers louder and starts chanting "How You Doin'?!"

    And let's get this straight... this no respect thing... it's not because you're foreign.

    Enzo pauses and stares right up at them in the ring intensely.

    It's because you're asses!

    The crowd pops as Lana, Rusev and Sheamus are very offended by the comment.

    Cass

    And speaking of asses...

    Cass points to Sheamus.

    Sheamus, I'm about to come in there and kick yours as a little preview of Survivor Series. And it doesn't matter if it's here tonight in Georgia...

    The Georgia crowd pops for their state being mentioned.

    Or in two weeks at Survivor Series, you two will fall because there’s only one word to describe you and I’m gonna spell it out for ya!

    Cass and Enzo get hyped up as the crowd joins in spelling.

    S…A…W…F…T! SAWFT!

    Big Cass walks down the ramp and gets into the ring, staring down Sheamus.

    Graves

    Every time I see these two, I hate them more and more.

    Ranallo

    Well right now, it’s the battle of the big men as Big Cass gets ready to take on Sheamus in one-on-one action.

    Sheamus vs. Big Cass

    The match is a back and forth hard-hitting affair. Both big men gain momentum at points, trying to out power the other. Towards the end, Sheamus gets Cass up on his shoulders and hits the Rolling Senton. Sheamus goes for the cover...1...2...Cass kicks out. Sheamus gets a bit frustrated. He lifts Cass up and gets him on his shoulders again, this time looking to setup for White Noise, but Cass elbows his way out of it and off Sheamus' shoulders. Sheamus turns around and Cass goes for a Big Boot, but Sheamus catches the boot and shoves him backwards off the ropes. Sheamus goes for a Brogue Kick as Cass cones back, but Cass ducks it and continues off the ropes. Sheamus turns around and gets nailed with a Big Boot by Cass. The crowd is getting behind Cass as he's feeling the momentum in his favor to finish things off. Cass lifts Sheamus up and hits the EAST RIVER CROSSING! Cass then runs off the ropes and follows up with the EMPIRE ELBOW! Sheamus rolls a bit towards the ropes after the impact of the elbow drop. Cass goes for the cover...1...2...NO! ROPEBREAK! Lana put Sheamus' foot on the bottom rope just in time. The referee is unaware Lana did this bit Enzo, Cass and the crowd know as the crowd boos her and Enzo comes over to confront her. Rusev then steps in the way and Enzo backs up a bit as Cass is yelling at Rusev and Lana from the ropes. Cass turns around and gets nailed with the BROGUE KICK by Sheamus! Sheamus goes for the cover...1...2...3! Sheamus wins!

    Winner: Sheamus

    Hamilton

    Here is your winner, Sheamus!

    Graves

    Just like in two weeks at Survivor Series, Sheamus beats Big Cass and keeps the momentum going for the World Tag Team Champions.

    Ranallo

    It’s tough not to acknowledge the extra advantage of having Lana out there as she was definitely a factor tonight.

    Graves

    Bit your tongue Mauro. Lana is their manager. She is there for support and that’s how she’s a factor every match. Nothing more.

    Ranallo

    Nonetheless, Sheamus pulls off a huge victory as things continue to look up for the World Tag Team Champions.

    We cut backstage and see Maverick in his office on his phone as the crowd pops for him.

    Maverick

    Yeah well it was something I had to do. Actually that's why I called. I wanted to see if you had any interest.

    Maverick listens to the person on the other line.

    It's a thought. Maybe I can take a problem off your hands in exchange.

    We hear a knock at the door. Maverick puts his hand to the phone to cover it.

    Come in!

    We hear the door open. Natalya walks into frame as the crowd boos her loudly. Maverick takes his hand off the phone.

    I'm going to need to call you back. But just think about it ok?

    Maverick listens to the person on the other side.

    OK I'll talk to you later. Bye.

    Maverick hangs up the phone and looks at Natalya.

    Thanks for coming in Natalya.

    Natalya

    So what did you want to see me about?

    Maverick

    Come on... I mean you have to know that it's about your actions last week?

    Natalya

    What are you talking about?

    Maverick

    Oh let's see... first you came out during a match that you weren't a part of. Then you rang the bell without official authorization, disrupting the match. And if all of that wasn't bad enough, you go and STEAL the Women’s World Championship from ringside.

    Natalya doesn't seem remorseful at all.

    What did you think we weren't going to care and just let that slide? How could you think stealing a title belt was going to be ok?

    Natalya

    You know why I did that last week? Strategy. You see Alex, its called mind games. I got in the head of Sasha Banks. I was sending her a message that she won't have that title for much longer because after Survivor Series, it will be around my waist!

    Maverick

    Strategy or not, you still interrupted a match and stole a title.

    Natalya

    Where's Shane? He would get this.

    Maverick

    Shane's not here tonight. And why would he get it and I wouldn't?

    Natalya

    Because unlike you, he's actually been in a ring. You don't understand what it takes to win a title or to get an upper hand on an opponent.

    Maverick

    First off, I talked to Shane about this the past week and we are in agreement that those types of actions are unacceptable.

    Maverick gets closer and gets more serious.

    And second... I may not have ever competed in a ring before, but I damn sure know that what you did is a dirty tactic.

    The crowd cheers as Natalya is taken aback a bit.

    You say its strategy, but I see it as the actions of someone who's afraid they're going to lose in two weeks.

    Natalya

    How dare you talk to me that way! I'm a Hart! I'm the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be! I will prove that in two weeks just like I do every night!

    Maverick

    Well then you'll get to prove that tonight!

    The crowd cheers as Natalya doesn't look too happy.

    Your actions last week not only affected Sasha Banks, but cost her partner the match. So tonight, you're going one on one with the fired up Lass Kicker... Becky Lynch!

    The crowd cheers louder as Natalya looks unhappy with the decision.

    Good luck!

    Natalya leaves the office, angry with what just happened.

    **Commercial Break**

    We return to Smackdown at ringside. “Respectful” plays and out comes Dana Brooke doing her gymnast cartwheel flip as the crowd boos her. Charlotte is right behind her as they walk to the ring.

    Hamilton

    The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, being accompanied by Charlotte, from Cleveland, OH, Dana Brooke.

    Ranallo

    Welcome back as we get ready for womens action now. And here comes Dana Brooke with the “Queen” right behind her as always.

    Graves

    Of course the Queen is out there. Dana Brooke is her protégé. And Charlotte has done a great job with her. Dana is coming off a huge tag team victory last week with the Queen and she looks to carry that forward.

    Ranallo

    Last week will have an asterisk next to it as Dana and Charlotte took advantage of a two on one situation, so let’s see how Dana fairs tonight.

    “Sky’s The Limit” plays and out comes Sasha Banks to a huge ovation. Sasha does her boss taunt and motions at the title around her waist.

    Hamilton

    And her opponent, from Boston, MA, the Womens World Champion, Sasha Banks.

    Ranallo

    And what I was referring to is in last week’s tag match when it looked like Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch were about to win, Natalya caused the distraction and stole Sasha’s title, making the Boss chase her and leaving Dana and Charlotte to take advantage.

    Graves

    That’s not Dana or Charlotte’s fault. Sasha Banks left her partner in the middle of a match. That’s on her. She’s too distracted by Natalya and that may cost her tonight against Dana.

    Ranallo

    Well we just saw before General Manager Alex Maverick warn Natalya not to repeat her action from last week, so hopefully Sasha Banks will not have to worry about her Survivor Series opponent tonight.

    Dana Brooke vs. Sasha Banks

    The match starts with Sasha taking control of Dana. She keeps control for a good amount of time, until Charlotte tries to trip her, allowing Dana to take control with a cheap shot to the back. Dana maintains control for a bit. We join where Dana has Sasha up on her shoulders, but Sasha fights out of it. Sasha fights back as the crowd is behind her and she find momentum back on her side. Towards the end, Sasha tosses Dana into the corner and runs after her with the Double Knee attack. Sasha sets Dana up in the corner laying along the middle rope. Sasha jumps up and lands the DOUBLE KNEE CORNER DROP on Dana! Sasha drags Dana away from the corner, but just then the crowd starts booing loudly. Sasha looks around figuring something was happening and catches NATALYA making her way down to ringside. She's heading right for the timekeeper's area, but Sasha rolls out and quickly cuts her off. Sasha stares Natalya down. Sasha motions to go back to the ring and Natalya inches closer. Sasha stops and goes back. She grabs her championship and holds it up towards Natalya. Sasha looks at the title and then back into the ring, trying to figure out what to do. Sasha then shrugs her shoulders and straps the title around her waist. Sasha slides back into the ring where Dana is up waiting to hit her with a clothesline, but Sasha ducks it right into the BACKSTABBER! Sasha transitions right into the BANK STATEMENT as she stares down Natalya on the outside, who's now walking away and back up the ramp. DANA TAPS OUT! Sasha wins!

    Winner: Sasha Banks

    Hamilton

    Here is your winner, Sasha Banks!

    Ranallo

    Despite Natalya trying to steal the Womens World Title for the second week in a row, this time the champion was prepared and was able to pull out the victory still.

    Graves

    What?! She cheated! She had that belt on in the ring. That should be a disqualification!

    Ranallo

    Don’t be ridiculous. Sasha did that to keep her belt from being stolen yet again.

    Graves

    Natalya getting in the champion’s head though.

    Ranallo

    These two will have a war in the 2 Out of 3 Falls match, but will there be repercussions for Natalya after that talk with Alex Maverick?

    We cut backstage to see Apollo Crews and Neville in the locker room getting ready and talking to each other as the crowd cheers. Just then, John Cena comes into frame and the crowd half pops and half boos. Cena shakes the hand of both men, who are happy to see him.

    Cena

    Hey boys.

    Neville

    Hey John.

    Crews

    Good to see you.

    Cena goes between Crews and Neville and puts his hand on each of their shoulders.

    Cena

    Listen... I wanted to say how much I appreciate you both standing on my side during this whole thing with Kevin Owens and his goons.

    Neville

    It's not a hard choice. We hate everything Kevin stands for and respect you.

    Crews

    Someone needed to help stand up for what's right against those bullies.

    Cena

    That's good to hear. And I know you guys have your own beef with Kevin Owens. He keeps calling you guys never-will-bees. He thinks you guys are so far below him that at Survivor Series it's going to be a cake walk.

    The crowd boos as Cena shakes his head.

    But I know that's not the case. I know the talent that I have on my team.

    Cena turns to Neville.

    Neville, not long ago you took AJ Styles to the limit and almost captured the World Heavyweight Championship!

    The crowd cheers as Neville nods and smiles.

    You came just as close, if not closer than Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns both did against AJ. You have proven to be one of the best high fliers in the business today and people recognize just how good you are now.

    The crowd cheers as Neville is getting more confident.

    Tonight, when you face the so-called "Perfect 10" Tye Dillinger...

    The crowd has a mixed reaction of Dillinger with boos and some "Ten!" chants.

    You'll show him that he's nothing more than an absolute zero!

    The crowd cheers and Cena looks over at Crews.

    And Apollo, you are one of the best athletes we've ever seen. From your speed to your strength, it's incredible to see. You've come so far since coming to the main roster and inserted yourself in pay per view matches and title matches. You're moving up and you're just a big win away from making that next jump.

    Crews nods as the crowd cheers.

    And that big win can come tonight when you take on Roman Reigns.

    The crowd boos the mention of Reigns.

    Now I'm not going to lie, it'll be a tough challenge. As much as I don't like his attitude, there's no denying he's a hell of an athlete. I mean he's a former World Champion. But you've faced him before. You know him and you're under his skin. And tonight, in your home of Georgia...

    The Georgia crowd pops loud.

    You can beat Roman Reigns and gain momentum not just for Team Cena but for yourself as well.

    Cena looks at both men who seemed fired up.

    So the question is... are you boys ready to show up Team Owens tonight?!

    Neville and Crews look at Cena.

    Neville

    WE'RE READY!

    Crews

    Let's do this!

    Cena pats them on the back as they are fired up and walk off screen.

    **Commercial Break**

    We cut backstage to see Natalya walking back from the ring as the crowd boos her. She has a very neutral look on her face as she didn't accomplish what she wanted to. Maverick storms up to her with and serious look on his face.

    Maverick

    So you're not going to listen to me? You like to steal things that belong to others?

    Natalya seems un-phased by Maverick getting angry.

    Well let's see how you like it when someone tries to steal something from you. Because tonight, your match with Becky Lynch is now for your #1 Contendership!

    The crowd cheers as Maverick walks away. Natalya stands there shocked and angry as she can't believe what she just heard.

    We return to ringside.

    Graves

    How could our General Manager do that?! And only two weeks away from Survivor Series?!

    Ranallo

    I think it’s the right call. He warned her and now she has to pay the price.

    “Ten” plays and out comes Tye Dillinger. A good portion of the crowd is chanting “TEN!” as Dillinger holds up a ten count with his hands, but there are boos in there.

    Hamilton

    The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, from Niagara Falls, Canada, weighing in at 223 pounds, he is the Perfect 10, Tye Dillinger.

    Ranallo

    And speaking of Survivor Series ramifications, that’s exactly what this match has as we see Team Owens member Tye Dillinger making his way out.

    Graves

    That’s right. Last night on Raw, it was a clean sweep for Team Owens. Tye Dillinger looks to keep that momentum for his team going here tonight.

    Ranallo

    We’ve seen Tye down in NXT, but this is a different Tye with a new attitude since coming to Raw.

    “Break Orbit” plays and Neville comes out from the smoke as the crowd cheers.

    Hamilton

    And his opponent, from Newcastle upon Tyne, England, weighing in at 194 pounds, Neville.

    Ranallo

    And here’s another man looking to prove himself, not just for his own sake but for Team Cena as well.

    Graves

    We saw John Cena giving a pep talk to Neville and Apollo Crews before. Everyone has already been selling Team Cena short, so a win here for Neville would be huge to shift momentum.

    Ranallo

    Neville looking to prove Kevin Owens and the rest of his detractors wrong when they say he’s a nothing compared to the members on Team Owens.

    Tye Dillinger vs. Neville

    The match starts with the two exchanging moves and blows, trying to gain the upperhand. Neville finally does, using his quickness, but it doesn't last long as Dillinger stops him as he went to the top rope. Dillinger keeps control and constantly mocks Neville, doing the 10 hand gesture in his face. Dillinger gets too cocky, allowing Neville to fight back. Neville comes back with a series of quick kicks and moves. We join with Neville in control jumping off the top rope and hitting Dillinger with a Missle Dropkick! Neville goes for the cover...1...2...Dillinger kicks out. Neville pulls Dillinger over towards the nearby corner, setting him up as he looks to go to the top rope. Neville climbs up to the top rope. The crowd gets to their feet as they know what Neville is setting up for. Neville jumps off the top rope looking for the RED ARROW, BUT DILLINGER ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! Neville crashes to the mat, holding his chest as Dillinger tries to gather himself quickly, realizing the opportunity he has now. Dillinger gets himself to a vertical base and pulls down his knee pad, waiting for Neville to get up. Neville gets to his feet and turns around to Dillinger lifting him up on his shoulders, most likely looking for the Tye Breaker. Neville starts wiggling to prevent the move and delivers a few elbows to the head. Dillinger still goes for the move, but Neville is able to reverse it into a Tornado DDT! Both men are down, but Neville is the first to move and use the ropes to get himself up. Neville goes to the outside apron, measuring Dillinger, who is slowly getting to his feet but letting the referee know he's hurt. Dillinger is trying to gain his balance using the referee as he is urging the referee to check his head. Neville looks to springboard in as he has a good angle on Dillinger, but Dillinger stumbles and "accidentally" pushes the referee into the ropes, causing Neville to crash and burn. The referee asks Dillinger what that was about. Dillinger says it was an accident as he acts out of it to play it off like he did it by accident. The crowd boos as they believe Dillinger did it on purpose and should be disqualified, but the referee lets the match go on. Dillinger gathers himself and lifts Neville up and onto his shoulders. Dillinger delivers the TYE BREAKER and goes for the cover! The referee is still not happy with what happened but makes the count as he believes it was an accident...1...2...3! Dillinger wins!

    Winner: Tye DIllinger

    Hamilton

    Here is your winner, Tye Dillinger!

    Ranallo

    A very controversial finish there to say the least. Neville and John Cena can’t be happy with the way that went down.

    Graves

    It was an accident. The referee could’ve disqualified Tye Dillinger but clearly he saw it as an accident too since he didn’t. Like it or not, that was a fair win for Tye Dillinger as he brings Team Owens one step closer to a “Perfect sweep!

    Ranallo

    We will see one more match tonight in this Team Owens vs. Team Cena series this week as Roman Reigns looks to finish the not-so-clean sweep against the Georgia native Apollo Crews.

    Graves

    Not-so-clean? Be more biased Mauro.

    We cut backstage to see Maverick in his office. We hear an aggressive knock on his door.

    Maverick

    Come in!

    Maverick turns to see Charlotte and Dana Brooke, who look very angry. The crowd boos the two women. Maverick looks a bit confused as to why they are in his office angry.

    Maverick

    Can I help you two?

    Charlotte is almost insulted by the question.

    Charlotte

    Can you help us?! Did you not see the travesty that occurred out there tonight during Dana's match?!

    Maverick

    Yes and I already handled it. Natalya is in a match later tonight against Becky Lynch...

    Charlotte

    What?! Natalya?! We don't care about that. I'm talking about Sasha Banks, your oh so proud champion, illegally having her title belt around her waist while fighting my protégé.

    Dana

    That's right. I was about to deliver a devastating Spear to Sasha that I'm positive would've ended the match in a victory for myself, but what happened? I saw that title belt around her waist at the last second and had to adjust my attack to a clothesline that I just simply couldn't have my all behind.

    Maverick shakes his head trying to process that.

    Maverick

    Let me get this straight... you're blaming a title belt around her waist in the final moments of the match, after Natalya came out to distract Sasha may I add, that didn't hit you for your loss tonight?

    Dana

    It’s not blame. It's just fact. I narrowly avoided driving my head and shoulder into that title belt. I could have seriously injured my shoulder or worse suffered a concussion.

    Charlotte

    Is that what you want? Is that the type of show you run here?

    Maverick doesn't seem to want to deal with their complaining.

    Maverick

    OK... I... just can't deal with your ridiculous claims right now. Nothing illegal happened; otherwise Sasha would've been DQed. The decision is final... that's it.

    Charlotte steps up to Maverick with a very angry look on her face as Maverick is facing forward.

    Charlotte

    You listen here... I'm the Queen of WWE! My father is a two time Hall of Famer. I'm already the greatest woman of all time and your future Womens World Champion! You will respect me and my protégé and you will listen to me when I tell you what to do.

    Maverick slowly turns towards Charlotte with a serious look on his face. The two stare down.

    Maverick

    Let me tell you something Miss... I'm your boss! I don't care who your father is, who you think you are or what moniker you give yourself. This is my show! I make the rules and I make the fair decisions whether you like them or not!

    Maverick stops and the stare down gets even more intense.

    Now I'm guessing you don't know that I made Natalya's match tonight with Becky Lynch for her #1 Contendership...

    Charlotte is baffled as she can't believe what she just heard.

    Charlotte

    WHAT?! That punk rock loser doesn't deserve that. I DO!

    Maverick

    And I was planning to make the "fair decision" and add you to the match to make it a triple threat...

    Charlotte perks up a bit.

    But after the disrespect you showed me, I'm not going to now.

    Charlotte is very angry as the crowd cheers. Dana pulls her back a bit and towards the door before she makes things worse.

    Charlotte

    Oh you'll see. I'm the only true contender for that title... I guarantee that!

    Maverick

    Oh and Charlotte... one last thing...

    Charlotte and Dana pause before heading out the door.

    If either of you attack Becky Lynch tonight at any point, then you two will be suspended!

    Charlotte and Dana leave angrier than when they walked in as the crowd loves the decision.

    **Commercial Break**

    We cut backstage to see Becky Lynch jumping around and getting pumped for her match. The crowd cheers loudly for the Irish Lass Kicker who has her game face on. Byron Saxton comes up to her with a microphone.

    Saxton

    Excuse me Becky...

    Becky stops and looks over at Saxton.

    Last week, we saw the controversial circumstances that your tag team match ended in thanks to Natalya. Due to her repeating attempt earlier tonight, we now know that your match is for the #1 Contendership. What are your thoughts going into this match with a huge opportunity and possibly redemption on your mind?

    Becky

    Byron, tonight I was looking towards just getting redemption after the ridiculous stunt Natalya pulled last week. But now thanks to our great General Manager Alex Maverick, I get a chance to become the #1 Contender for the Womens World Championship!

    The crowd cheers as Becky has a smile on her face.

    She’s shown disrespect to me, Sasha Banks, our division and that championship. Someone needs to put her in her place.

    Becky pauses for a second with a serious look on her face.

    And that person is going to be the Lass Kicker! Tonight, it's going to feel good to teach her a lesson in respect, get my title shot and get some payback as I KICK... HER... LASS!

    Becky walks off with her game face on.

    “We're Coming Down” plays. The crowd boos as the Dudley Boyz come out and taunt at the crowd.

    Hamilton

    The following tag team contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, at a combined weight of 549 pounds, Bubba Ray & D-Von, The Dudley Boyz.

    Graves

    Becky wants to teach lessons; well here comes two decorated veterans looking to teach the rookies American Alpha yet another lesson.

    Ranallo

    A few weeks ago, the Dudley Boyz took on American Alpha and was victorious against the young team. The nine-time WWE World Tag Team Champions look to make it two in a row as they try to head towards the tenth title reign.

    Graves

    The disrespect for the veterans Dudley Boyz has been ridiculous. I can’t blame the Dudleys for wanting to teach these young punks a lesson.

    “Elite” plays and out comes American Alpha to a cheering crowd. Gable and Jordan stare down the Dudleys from the stage and then psych each other up as they head down the ramp.

    Hamilton

    And their opponents, at a combined weight of 447 pounds, Jason Jordan and Chad Gable, American Alpha.

    Ranallo

    Well these young punks as you called them Corey are an extremely talented team and ready to go. They are very respectful young men who are just trying to prove themselves on the main roster.

    Graves

    They think they are big shots because they made it to the finals of the World Tag Team tournament, but they still have a lot to learn.

    Ranallo

    That is no small feat and they look ready to go tonight, to rectify their previous loss against the Dudleys.

    The Dudley Boyz vs. American Alpha

    The match is a back and forth competitive match with both teams taking control at points. Towards the end, the Dudleys have control of the match with Bubba and Gable as the legal men. Bubba is punching away at Gable in the corner and trash talking him. Bubba smacks Gable in the face which the crowd "ohs" at and boos, but it seems to wake Gable up and fire him up. Bubba goes for a clothesline, but Gable ducks underneath, goes behind Bubba and hits a quick German Suplex. The crowd cheers for Gable as both men crawl towards their corners. Bubba tags in D-Von and Gable just gets to Jordan as the crowd explodes. Jordan comes in with tons of energy and knocks D-Von with a few clothesline followed up with a Belly To Belly Suplex. Jordan hits D-Von with a few more suplexes before tossing D-Von into a corner. Jordan stalks D-Von in the opposite corner, getting pumped up as the crowd is fully behind him. Before he starts to run across, Bubba walks halfway over on the apron and starts yelling at Jordan "Hey kid! Hey kid! Look at me you punk!" Jordan can't help but get distracted and looks over at Bubba. Bubba continues to talk trash at Jordan, who looks to get in his face, but the referee steps in between and tells Bubba to get back to his corner. Bubba complies and Jordan shifts his focus back to D-Von. Jordan runs across the ring at D-Von, bit D-Von comes out of the corner and meets him halfway with a huge clothesline. D-Von makes his way to his corner and tags in Bubba. Bubba runs in and blasts Gable off the apron and hard to the floor. The Dudleys stalk Jordan as he gets back up. Jordan turns around right into a 3-D!! Bubba goes for the cover...1...2...3! The Dudleys win!

    Winners: The Dudley Boyz

    Hamilton

    Here are your winners, Bubba Ray and D-Von, The Dudley Boyz!

    Graves

    Just as I told you Mauro, the veteran Dudley Boyz win and I think taught Gable and Jordan a few lessons.

    The Dudleys celebrate on the ramp, yelling back at American Alpha in the ring as the crowd boos them. American Alpha look disappointed in their loss and themselves.

    Ranallo

    It looked like American Alpha was closing in on a victory, but the Dudleys showing their veteran prowess and distracting Jordan, costing them the match.

    Graves

    American Alpha is a great team. Very athletic and full of potential. But they have a lot to learn. They feel victim to a rookie mistake tonight. But more importantly, the Dudleys have made a case for themselves to move up in the tag team division.

    Ranallo

    Well speaking of the tag team division, last week we saw Fandango go down to the Performance Center in Florida to find a partner, though he was unsuccessful there. We will now see as he continues his search to find the “prefect dance partner.”

    We cut to a prerecorded video. We see shots from inside of a club with “Just Dance” by Lady Gaga playing loudly as people are dancing in the background. The camera pans over to show Fandango gyrating his hips. He turns towards the camera.

    Fandango

    It’s Britney Bitch!

    Fandango pauses for a second and slows down the gyrating.

    After meeting nothing but duds at the Performance Center, I realized I was looking in the wrong place. I need someone with grace… someone who can feel the music… someone who can…

    Fandango speeds up the gyrating again.

    Dance! And what better place than here at The Groove, where I’m confident I will find the perfect dance partner!

    Fandango dances away towards the crowd.

    We cut to a couple (man and woman) dancing on the dance floor. Fandango comes up to both of them.

    Fandango

    Excuse me… I couldn’t help admire your dancing. You mind if I cut in?

    The couple looks at Fandango with a confused and creeped out look on their faces.

    Couple Woman

    Um… I’m with my boyfriend so…

    Fandango cuts her off and moves her out of the way.

    Fandango

    I wasn’t talking to you.

    Fandango gets in front of the guy and starts gyrating his hips. The guy looks puzzled.

    I like your moves. I have a proposition for you. How’d you like to be my partner and come wrestle with me?

    The guy looks very creeped out as he most like misinterprets Fandango’s question. He walks away with his girlfriend who looks angry she got shoved away by Fandango.

    That was rude.

    We cut to dance circle where a man is doing break dancing in the middle of it as the crowd cheers him on, impressed by his moves. Fandango casually walks into the middle of the circle towards the breakdancing man.

    Fandango

    You call that dancing?

    He shoves the man out of the circle.

    This is dancing!

    He starts gyrating his hips in the middle of the circle. The crowd’s excitement from before fades and they all start turning away from him, breaking up the circle. Fandango doesn’t care as he keeps confidently gyrating his hips.

    We cut to Fandango talking to a manly looking woman bartender. We join in the middle of their conversation.

    Fandango

    So I said to him “you’re the movie app.”

    The bartender laughs.

    Bartender

    You’re so funny Fandango. And I love your moves! They are so… mesmerizing.

    Fandango starts gyrating.

    Fandango

    I know. I’m really good!

    The Bartender leans in closer to Fandango over the bar and has a flirty vibe that Fandango isn’t picking up on.

    Let me ask you something. I know this may be quick…

    The Bartender perks up.

    Bartender

    Yes Fandango?!

    Fandango

    I’m down here looking for a partner… and I think that could be you.

    Bartender

    Really?!

    Fandango

    Yeah muchacho! You’re per…

    The Bartender looks confused and stops Fandango.

    Bartender

    Wait… muchacho?

    Fandango

    It’s Spanish for great man bull fighter… or something like that.

    Bartender

    I’m a woman… you know that right?

    Fandango

    Oh really?

    Fandango pauses.

    Sorry then. I’m looking for a man. I’m not into inter-gender tag teaming.

    The Bartender looks very confused as Fandango walks away.

    We cut to two attractive girls laughing at the bar with drinks in their hands. Fandango walks up and gets the girls’ attention.

    Fandango

    Hello ladies!

    Fandango starts gyrating as the girls look grossed out.

    Which one of you Florida 7’s wants to be lucky enough to dance with FAH-DAN-GO?

    One of the girls throws her drink into Fandango’s face.

    Thanks. I was getting hot.

    Fandango is oblivious to what is going on and the girls’ storm off insulted. Just then, we hear someone in the distance very loudly.

    Unknown

    FANDANGO?!

    We see Mojo Rawley come into the screen and give Fandango a bro hug, who looks very confused.

    Rawley

    How are you man?!

    Fandango looks at him puzzled.

    Fandango

    I’m sorry but, who are you?

    Rawley

    It’s Mojo… Mojo Rawley… from NXT.

    Fandango looks confused for a second.

    Fandango

    I believe it’s spelled N-E-X-T.

    Rawley is puzzled for a second but then shakes it off and gets hyped again.

    Rawley

    Hey, I hear you’re looking for a tag team partner for over on Smackdown. What do you think about the master of dance and his hype man?!

    Fandango looks at Rawley with an unsure look on his face.

    It’d be great! You know what… why don’t you come over to our VIP area of there.

    Rawley points to the VIP area.

    We’ve got girls, drinks, everything. Gronk will set you up!

    Fandango looks confused.

    Fandango

    What is a “Gronk?” It sounds like the sound a swan makes.

    Rawley laughs and slaps Fandango on the back.

    Rawley

    You’re funny man! Come on!

    Rawley looks to bring Fandango over, but Fandango is looking at the area next to where Rawley wants to go. Fandango points at another VIP area.

    Fandango

    Who is that?

    The camera zooms in a bit and we see a man dancing, surrounded by girls.

    Rawley

    Oh that’s Andre Cien Almas. He’s a wrestler from NXT too. He knows the owner so that’s pretty much his own VIP area. But anyway let’s go…

    Fandango releases himself from Rawley’s grip.

    Fandango

    What a lady’s man! And he’s got such nice moves. Look at those hips. Like a Spanish Stallion!

    Rawley looks weirded out as Fandango walks mindlessly towards Almas’ VIP area. He gets over to the VIP area and taps Almas. Almas looks at him, a bit annoyed he’s being interrupted.

    Fandango

    Excuse me muchacho… I’m sure you know me.

    Almas

    Yeah. You’re Fandango. Can I help you?

    Fandango

    I’m down here looking for the perfect dance partner… and I want that to be you!

    Almas doesn’t look interested.

    Almas

    I’m not interested.

    Fandango

    You sure? You’re not interested in being a team with me on Smackdown?

    Almas perks up a bit.

    Almas

    Did you say on Smackdown?

    Fandango

    Yes I did muchacho. In fact, we’ll have a match next week.

    Almas looks very intrigued.

    Almas

    Next week? Bien, hagamos una prueba. Realmente quiero estar en la lista principal.

    Fandango looks confused.

    Fandango

    I don’t speak Spanish. Is that a yes?

    Almas smirks.

    Almas

    Sí!

    Fandango looks confused still.

    Fandango

    See what? What will I see?

    Almas gets a bit frustrated.

    Almas

    YES! I’m teaming with you next week.

    Fandango smiles.

    Fandango

    Alright! I’ll see you next week! Hasta la-bye-bye!

    Almas shakes his head as Fandango dances away. Almas shrugs his shoulders and starts celebrating with the women there.

    **Commercial Break**

    We return to ringside with Ranallo and Graves.

    Ranallo

    Welcome back to Smackdown. And right now, we’re going to take a special look at The Club heading into Survivor Series as they sat down earlier with our very own Corey Graves for a hard hitting interview.

    We cut to a video recorded earlier in the day for a sit-down interview. We see Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, AJ Styles and Finn Balor sitting down in that order with Corey Graves in the middle of them.

    Graves

    Thank you gentlemen for joining me here today. My first question right off the bat is how does it feel to have the four of you finally together as part of The Club?

    Anderson

    It's really great! For those who may not know The Club's history, this all started with myself and Finn back a few years ago in Japan. Finn wanted to try something new and we went for it. I don't think either of us ever knew it'd turn into what it is today but yet here we are with The Club living strong as one of wrestling's greatest groups today not just here in WWE but all over the world.

    Gallows

    Like Karl said, he and Finn started it all but it grew so much. I joined The Club and eventually so did AJ. We had lost Finn at that point who moved into NXT so the four of us had never been part of The Club together. Getting Finn to rejoin us... it was a special moment for us. We finally feel complete.

    Anderson

    This isn't just some group for us Corey... The Club is a family.

    Graves

    Well speaking of family, in two weeks you four will be taking on the Wyatt Family in a traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Match. With how destructive the Wyatts have been the last few months, how do you feel going into this match?

    Styles

    This isn't going to be an easy match. We all know that. The Wyatts have been on a destructive path that we've never seen before. We've been the victims of it. But that won't stop us! That won't make us doubt ourselves going into this match.

    Balor

    We can't doubt ourselves going into this match... otherwise they already win.

    Gallows

    The Wyatts have messes with the wrong group. And at Survivor Series they will learn just how dangerous we can be too!

    Graves

    Finn, we saw Gallows and Anderson trying to recruit you before for The Club, but you kept turning then down. What made you change your mind and finally join them?

    Balor

    I turned them down because I felt like that was part of my past and I wanted to move on. I came to NXT while they were all still in Japan. I was gone from The Club and ready to start a chapter all on my own, which I did. So when they asked me to rejoin...

    Balor pauses.

    I felt like it would've been me looking back to my time in Japan and I wanted to focus on moving forward. But with everything going on with the Wyatts...

    Balor looks over at each of The Club members.

    I knew I needed to step in and help out my brothers.

    Anderson

    He's a good brother. He had our backs when we needed him the most!

    Graves

    Well many, including myself speculated you didn't want to join because of AJ Styles. We had seen some tension between you two since coming to Smackdown. I think everyone wants to know what is that all about and is there still tension there?

    Balor and Styles look at each other with a bit of serious looks on their faces. Neither says anything at first until Anderson jumps in.

    Anderson

    Look guys, we know there was some tension between you two. Let's get it all out now so we can move past it and focus on our mission as a team.

    Gallows

    It's for the good of the team brothers. If we don't have trust, then we've already lost.

    Balor and Styles reluctantly nod at Anderson.

    Styles

    Ok so I've never met Finn before the draft. When he left New Japan, I came in so we never crossed paths. I guess I felt weird seeing him after taking his spot as the leader of The Club. I didn't know how he'd feel towards me so I kept my guard up.

    Balor

    Honestly, I had no problem with someone "taking my spot" as the leader of The Club. Like I said, I had left and while I loved my time in Japan, I was onto a new chapter that I wanted to focus on. With AJ specifically...

    Balor pauses and looks over at Styles.

    I just didn't know him. Like he said, we never crossed paths so all I knew of him was what I saw on video from Japan. He seemed a bit arrogant, calling himself phenomenal and all, so that was my impression of him. I thought he was full of himself and I didn't want to be around someone like that.

    Styles looks a bit offended for a second but then let's Balor continue.

    But after getting to know him a bit in person now, I can see that it's simply his belief in himself and his abilities. Some may say we are very similar in our confidence in ourselves. I may not boast it as much as AJ, but confidence is key in this business!

    Styles smirks as he sees that comment as a slight towards him.

    Styles

    Exactly. He may not have boasted himself, but all I heard from Karl and Luke was how great Finn Balor was. I thought "there's no way this guy is that good" and so I had a slight bias against him. But I get it now. I've seen firsthand how great he is when we faced off in the semifinals of the World Heavyweight Championship tournament that I won.

    Balor glances over, almost seeing Styles bringing that up as a slight to him as Styles smirks a bit and the two stare down for a second before brushing it off.

    Graves

    As if the rivalry between The Club and the Wyatts wasn't enough, a stipulation was added to this match by General Manager Alex Maverick, in which he described to Bray Wyatt as "Feast or Famine." If the Wyatt Family wins, Bray Wyatt finally gets his World Heavyweight Championship match against you AJ. If they lose, then Bray Wyatt is gone from Smackdown. With this stipulation added, how much more important is a victory at Survivor Series?

    Graves turns to Styles.

    And AJ specifically, how important is a victory for you and your championship?

    Styles

    This stipulation raises this match to a whole new level. Bray Wyatt and his family have been terrorizing the entire Smackdown roster since the draft...

    Styles holds up the World Title.

    All to get to this... What he deems as the "great power." We've seen the lengths he'll go to in order to get it. He took out Sami Zayn.

    Styles points to Gallows and Anderson.

    He cost Gallows and Anderson their Tag Team Titles.

    Gallows and Anderson look angry as they have not forgotten.

    And he's attacked anyone in his way, targeting us specifically. I want to clarify that I have no fear in facing Bray Wyatt one-on-one for this title. I'm called phenomenal for a reason and it's because I can beat anyone between those ropes, including him. But with Bray...

    Styles pauses.

    You know you get the tricks and the family out there so it's never a fair fight. A win at Survivor Series is not to avoid defending my title against him, but to rid Smackdown of the cancer that is Bray Wyatt so we can get back to real competition and no one else has to suffer like Sami Zayn did.

    Graves

    Any final thoughts for Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt Family before Survivor Series?

    Styles leans in a bit, very serious and stares directly at the camera as it slowly zooms in on him.

    Styles

    Wyatt Family... you've tried to take us down with fear but we aren't scared of you. We stand tall together as a brotherhood as we get ready for the fight of our lives. We will give you everything we have and if you're sending us to hell...

    Styles points at the camera with a motivated and serious look on his face.

    We're taking you with us! In two weeks... Survivor Series will simply be one thing...

    Styles looks over at Balor next to him. Balor holds up the "too sweet" hand sign with a serious look on his face as he stares into the camera.

    Balor

    Too Sweet!

    We cut back to ringside to the commentary table.

    Ranallo

    It looks like The Club is ready for their battle with the Wyatts in two weeks.

    Graves

    They better be if they want a chance at defea....

    Just then the Wyatt Interruption video plays. We see a dark room with smoke. The smoke clears a bit as we pan over to see the Wyatt Family. Bray Wyatt is rocking back and forth in his rocking chair slowly, looking down at his hands as the rest of the Wyatts stand around him looking at the camera menacingly.

    Wyatt

    Club... you seem to forget who you're dealing it.

    Wyatt looks up at the camera.

    Well let me remind you.

    Wyatt holds out his arms towards the rest of the Wyatt Family.

    We are the most dangerous entity this industry has ever seen! No one...

    Wyatt points at the camera.

    Including you is safe. You think that you're going to banish me from my kingdom and free the land of opportunity of my wrath.

    Wyatt does an evil laugh.

    But that's just a fairytale. It isn't real.

    Wyatt starts talking a bit louder and more emphatically.

    What is real is the fear that I instill in all of you and the powers that be. What is real is the path of destruction we've laid on my quest to the "great power!"

    Wyatt pauses and calms down, talking now in a creepy soft tone.

    And what is real is that you, Club will fall and you will fail. Because in two weeks, you will pray to your god for peace among this land of opportunity...

    Wyatt holds out his arms and has an evil look on his face.

    But I am God! And Armageddon is upon you!

    Wyatt pauses and stares with a serious and evil look on his face as the camera zooms in towards him.

    Club... get ready for a war you can't win!

    The Wyatt Interruption video plays again and the screen goes black.

    **Commercial Break**

    We cut backstage to see Titus O'Neil in the hallway talking to Mark Henry. The crowd has a mixed reaction to both men. Byron Saxton walks up to them with a microphone.

    Saxton

    Titus, can I have a moment of your time?

    O'Neil and Henry stop talking and turn towards Saxton.

    O'Neil

    I'm always available for the spotlight Byron.

    Saxton

    OK well last week it seemed like the light may have gone out on Slater Gator as a team when you left your partner Heath Slater to get decimated by the Wyatt Family, leaving him at home recovering from injuries this week. I think everyone especially Heath Slater wants to know why did you do that?

    O'Neil

    That's simple Byron. Week after week, I had to team with that annoying, obnoxious little man only to keep losing. If you remember, I never wanted to team with him in the first place. The only reason I gave in is because I wanted to be a part of the Tag Team Championship tournament, which what good that did me.

    The crowd boos O’Neil’s motivation.

    And while I was done with the team months ago, Slater kept going to Alex Maverick and Shane McMahon getting us booking in tag team matches. I tried telling him to stop but he wouldn't listen.

    O’Neil points to his ear.

    Words go in his ear and out the other. But last week, when he had us booked against the dangerous Wyatt Family…

    O’Neil pauses and shakes his head.

    That was it. I knew I had to get out. Can you blame me Byron? You saw what they did to Heath and countless others. We were outnumbered. I saved my career last week by leaving that idiot behind on his unwinnable crusade.

    Henry puts his hand on O'Neil's shoulder and leans towards the microphone.

    Henry

    And now that he's got that dead weight off his shoulders, my man Titus here, under my guidance, can focus on being the star he was born to be.

    O'Neil nods and smiles in agreement as the crowd boos.

    “New Foundation” plays and the crowd boos as Natalya makes her way out with an angry look on her face.

    Hamilton

    The following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is for the #1 Contendership to the Womens World Championship. Introducing first, from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Natalya.

    Graves

    I still can’t believe this is happening. Two weeks away from her huge match at Survivor Series, Natalya has to defend her #1 Contendership that she already earned.

    Ranallo

    It’s her own fault Corey after she disobeyed Alex Maverick and his warning at the beginning of the night. The General Manager is putting his foot down now and Natalya will have to pay the price.

    Graves

    She didn’t even actually steal the title tonight. I get being stricter, but this is too much. Poor Natalya is a victim of being made an example out of.

    “Celtic Invasion” plays and out comes a fired-up Becky Lynch from the smoke as the crowd cheers for her.

    Hamilton

    And her opponent, from Dublin, Ireland, Becky Lynch.

    Ranallo

    Natalya may not like it, but “The Lass Kicker” is the benefactor of all this as she has a huge opportunity ahead of her and can side into a Womens World Title match at Survivor Series.

    Graves

    And here is my other issue. Why is Becky Lynch getting this title shot? If the #1 Contendership much be defended it should be against the Queen if no one else.

    Ranallo

    We heard from Alex Maverick earlier that he was going to add Charlotte to the match until she got in his face and disrespected him. Again another example of our General Manager standing up and being firmer to take back control.

    #1 Contendership for Womens World Championship

    Natalya vs. Becky Lynch

    Becky starts with a head full of steam going right at Natalya. Becky clubs away and starts hitting suplexes early in the match as you can tell she's fired up. Becky stays in control until Natalya sees and opening while in the corner and pulls Becky by her gear shoulder first into the steel post. Natalya slows the match down, working on Becky's back with stomps, backbreakers and more. At a point, a Natalya gets Becky on the top rope and looks for a Superplex, but Becky is able to fight out with forearms, dropping Natalya to the mat. Becky gets perched on the top rope and hits a Missile Dropkick on Natalya. Both women slowly get to their feet and exchange forearms with each other, with Becky getting the better as the crowd cheers her on. Becky has the momentum on her side as she keeps the attack on Natalya. Becky lands a flying forearm in the corner and follows up with a Becksplex. Becky goes for the cover...1...2...Natalya kicks out. Becky goes to grab Natalya's arm, but Natalya quickly runs over to the ropes to get her off of her. Natalya then boots Becky in the gut as she comes over. Natalya goes behind Becky and throws her with a German Suplex. Natalya grabs Becky's legs and looks to lock in the Sharpshooter, but Becky is fighting it. Natalya reaches down to get a better grip to cross the legs in position, but Becky reaches up and pulls Natalya's arm down. The two wrestle a bit for position, but Becky is able to get Natalya down on her stomach and has a hold of her arm. Becky looks like she's trying to go for the Dis-Arm-Her, but Natalya is fighting it, not allowing Becky to lock it in all the way. Just then, "RESPECT" PLAYS AND OUT COMES CHARLOTTE AND DANA BROOKE! The crowd boos as the two make their way onto the stage, motioning towards the ring as they talk to each other. Becky is getting distracted by them, but tries to keep her focus on locking in the hold. Charlotte and Dana now start walking down the ramp, which distracts Becky even more. Natalya takes advantage of Becky getting distracted and is able to slips out of Becky's grip. Charlotte and Dana stop halfway down the ramp. Becky looks at them and then quickly turns around to go after Natalya, but Natalya grabs Becky and nails her with a hard Spinebuster! Natalya quickly grabs Becky's legs and locks in the SHARPSHOOTER! Becky is scratching and clawing towards the ropes as the crowd is cheering her on. Charlotte and Dana are mocking her and signaling for her to tap out. Becky is a figure tip away, but Natalya then pulls her away and back to the middle of the ring. Becky holds on as long as she can... but the pain is too much and BECKY IS FORCED TO TAP OUT! Natalya wins!

    Winner: Natalya

    Hamilton

    Here is your winner and still the #1 Contender for the Womens World Championship, Natalya!

    Ranallo

    And Natalya keeps here title match at Survivor Series with a little help from a distraction by Charlotte and Dana Brooke.

    Graves

    Oh thank God. The rightful woman keeps her #1 Contendership. All is right!

    Natalya keeps Becky locked in the Sharpshooter as the referee tries to get Natalya to let go of the hold. The crowd boos while Charlotte and Dana look on approvingly with smirks on their faces.

    Ranallo

    What is this?! The match is over! Release the hold already!

    Graves

    Natalya sending a message to Sasha Banks I’m sure.

    The crowd starts cheering and we see Sasha Banks run down the ramp and split between Charlotte and Dana, bumping them both a bit.

    Ranallo

    AND HERE COMES THE WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION!

    Sasha runs into the ring and tackles Natalya off Becky. The crowd erupts as Sasha punches away at Natalya.

    Graves

    She has no business out here!

    Ranallo

    She’s saving her friend Becky Lynch and getting some retribution while she’s at it!

    Charlotte and Dana get into the ring and pry Sasha off Natalya. Sasha tries to fight them both, but Charlotte and Dana use the numbers to their advantage and beat down Sasha as the crowd boos loudly.

    Graves

    Good for Charlotte and Dana helping out Natalya! They are doing the right thing.

    Natalya joins their attack until they see Becky slowly getting to her feet. Charlotte points at Becky and tells Natalya to get her. Natalya hits Becky with a massive DISCUSS CLOTHESLINE just as she gets to her feet!

    Ranallo

    A huge DISCUSS CLOTHESLINE TO BECKY LYNCH! Almost decapitating her!

    Dana yells down at a beaten Sasha as Charlotte hits NATURAL SELECTION on the champion!

    Ranallo

    NATURAL SELECTION TO THE CHAMPION! Charlotte and Dana sticking their noses where they don’t belong after Alex Maverick told them not to.

    Natalya, Charlotte and Dana stand tall and look down at their fallen adversaries proud of themselves as the arena fills with boos and "You Suck!" chants.

    Graves

    He said for them not to attack Becky Lynch. He said nothing about the Women’s World Champion. And after the way Sasha won earlier against Dana Brooke earlier tonight, they had every right to be out here.

    Ranallo

    The challenger standing tall just two weeks away from the huge 2 Out of 3 Falls match at Survivor Series. Will this be the scene come November 20th?

    We cut backstage to see Tye Dillinger walking in the hallway. The crowd mostly boos now with a few "Ten!" chants still in there. Just then we see Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns come up to him. The crowd boos loudly, but Owens is all smiles as he pats Dillinger on the back.

    Owens

    There he is! May I say that performance out there was a perfect....

    Owens holds out his hands to count 10.

    Ten!

    Dillinger and Owens smirk.

    I wish I could've seen the look on John Cena's stupid face you beat Neville and he realized exactly what I've been saying all along and that's his team is full of losers that'll never be anything.

    The crowd boos as Owens continues to smirk.

    Luckily I'll get the chance to see tonight because I hear John Cena is going to be out there in Apollo Crews' corner. So of course...

    Owens puts his hand on Reigns' shoulder.

    I'm going to be in the Big Dog's corner. And after he destroys Apollo Crews...

    The camera zooms in on Owens who has a sadistic yet cocky smile on his face.

    I'm going to see the exact moment when John Cena realizes that for our match at Survivor Series, no "Superman comeback" can save him and his team from the most embarrassing loss in Survivor Series history!

    Owens and Reigns walk off towards the ring.

    **Commercial Break**

    We cut backstage to see Charlotte, Dana and Natalya walking back from the ring, seemingly very proud of their actions as the crowd boos them. Maverick storms up to them much like he did Natalya earlier.

    Maverick

    What was that?! I said not to attack Becky or you'd be suspended!

    Charlotte

    And we listened to you. Dana and I never laid a finger on Becky. Watch the tape back.

    Charlotte and Dana have smirks on their faces as Maverick is a bit frustrated.

    Maverick

    Fine... that's how you want to play it? I don't care. Next week, no games. It'll be Charlotte and the #1 Contender Natalya taking on Becky Lynch and the Womens World Champion Sasha Banks!

    Natalya and Charlotte seem happy with the match as is the crowd who is cheering the decision. Maverick walks away as the women stay and start talking to each other.

    We cut back to ringside to the commentator’s table.

    Ranallo

    Alex Maverick laying down the law tonight!

    Graves

    Technically Charlotte and Dana did listen to him. But what a tag team match made for next week!

    Ranallo

    Indeed it is, but in just two weeks...

    "Ready For War (Pray For Peace)" by Adelitas Way plays. A graphic for the Women’s World Championship match at Survivor Series shows on the screen.

    Natalya won't have Charlotte and Dana out there as distractions when she takes on Sasha Banks in a 2 Out of 3 Falls match. After the first match ending in a tie, which woman can beat the other twice to walk out the Womens World Champion?

    A graphic for the World Tag Team Championship match at Survivor Series shows on the screen.

    Graves

    Since earning the World Tag Team Titles, Rusev and Sheamus have been unstoppable. Will Enzo and Cass be able to stop their momentum and win their first gold in the WWE? With Lana in the champions' corner, I think those titles are staying right where they are.

    A graphic for the Wyatt Family vs. The Club match at Survivor Series shows on the screen.

    Ranallo

    After months of terrorizing the Smackdown roster, Bray Wyatt finally has a chance to earn a World Title match as he and his family take on the newly reformed Club. Will Wyatt walk out #1 Contender or will he be gone from Smackdown for good?

    A graphic for the Team Owens vs. Team Cena match at Survivor Series shows on the screen.

    Graves

    And after taking matters into his own hands to show the star he is, Kevin Owens will captain his team to take on the man he took out and what started this all, John Cena and his team. Will Cena get retribution or will Owens continue to show the star he is?

    “Fight” plays and the crowd boos as Kevin Owens makes his way out onto the stage.

    Ranallo

    Well speak of the devil, here comes Kevin Owens now as we get ready for our main event.

    Graves

    How dare you call Kevin Owens the devil? He’s a saint and we are lucky to have him grace us every week on Smackdown!

    Owens makes his way down the ramp and over to the announce table.

    Ranallo

    And it looks like Kevin Owens will “grace us” with his presence here on commentary. Welcome Kevin.

    Owens

    I don’t like your sarcastic tone Mauro. You should be grateful that I’m here to pick up your slack because you’re so terrible at your job.

    Graves

    It was desperately needed and I for one am glad you’re here Kevin.

    Owens

    Thank you Corey. At least one man on commentary is smart.

    “The Truth Reigns” plays and Roman Reigns makes his way out with a bit of a confident swagger to a sea of boos.

    Hamilton

    The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, from Pensacola, FL, weighing in at 265 pounds, Roman Reigns.

    Ranallo

    Here comes the “Big Dog” Roman Reigns, a man who you have formed quite a bond with the last two months Kevin.

    Owens

    That’s because we are both victims of Alex Maverick’s ridiculous bias. Roman Reigns and myself are stars. He’s a former WWE World Champion. And at Survivor Series, he will help lead the greatest Survivor Series team in history to victory.

    Graves

    And right now, he has the chance to make it a clean sweep for Team Owens this week.

    Owens

    And I have no doubt that he will.

    “Cruise Control” plays and the crowd erupts for the hometown wrestler Apollo Crews, who is fired up.

    Hamilton

    And his opponent, from Stone Mountain, GA, weighing in at 240 pounds, Apollo Crews.

    Ranallo

    LISTEN TO THIS CROWD! They are all on their feet for the Georgia native Apollo Crews, who lives just a half hour down the road from the arena.

    Owens

    Who cares where Apollo lives? Just because he lives here doesn’t mean he’s going to magically not be a failure. Unlike myself last night in my home of Montreal, he will send is “hometown fans” home disappointed. I guarantee it.

    Graves

    This has to be one of Apollo’s biggest matches on Smackdown and the pressure is one. He’s in his hometown, he’s in his first Smackdown main event, and he holds the whole load for Team Cena on his shoulders.

    Owens

    And he will crumble under that pressure. Apollo Crews is not a big-time player, unlike Roman Reigns and we will see that here tonight.

    Just then, “The Time Is Now” plays. Crews and Reigns look over at the stage and out comes John Cena to a mixed reaction.

    Owens

    WHAT IS HE DOING OUT HERE?!

    Ranallo

    The same as you Kevin. He wants to support his fellow Survivor Series team member.

    Owens

    I’m on commentary. He has no business out here.

    Cena makes his way down the ramp and to the commentary table, putting a headset on as Owens stares at him confused and angry.

    Ranallo

    Well it looks like the 15 time champ is joining us on commentary too. Welcome John!

    Cena

    Thanks for having me Mauro. And don’t listen to this chump. You’re doing a great job as always.

    Owens

    Sucking up as usual. What other crap are you going to spew? That Apollo Crews will beat Roman Reigns?

    Cena

    I believe in Apollo. He is very skilled and I think being in his hometown is going to motivate him even more tonight and prevent the sweep!

    Roman Reigns vs. Apollo Crews

    The match starts off with Reigns trying to get an early cheap shot on Crews, but Crews fights back and takes control on the beginning of the match. A few minutes in, Reigns uses his power to take control of the match. Reigns slows the pace down, using his punches and power moves to ground Crews as the crowd boos him. On commentary, Owens is talking trash to Cena how Reigns is owning Crews just like Team Owens will at Survivor Series. Cena says the fight isn't over. Just as it looks like Reigns is getting too confident, Crews manages to slip off his shoulders and hits him with a Jumping Enzuguiri! Both men are down and slowly get back to a vertical base. They trade blows which Crews seems to get the better of, until Reigns lands a cheap knee to the gut. Reigns tosses Crews off the ropes but Crews comes back with a Jumping Clothesline. Crews follows up with a flurry of quick offense on Reigns. Crews is feeling it as momentum is on his side as is the hometown crowd. We join where Crews lifts Reigns up and slams him to the mat. Crews sets up next to Reigns looking for the Standing Moonsault, when OWENS GETS UP from commentary and runs onto the apron yelling at Crews. Crews is distracted and the referee comes over to tell Owens to get down. Crews looks to go over and tell off Owens, but that distraction allows Reigns to get back to his feet. Crews turns around to keep his focus on the match but gets nailed with a SUPERMAN PUNCH! While that happens, CENA GETS UP from his seat at the commentary table and runs over to Owens. Cena pulls Owens' leg, causing him to fall down from the apron and smash his face on it. Owens holds his face and Cena lands a few punches in. Owens quickly back tracks and looks to get out of there and up the ramp and Cena tries to chase him around the ring. Owens gets up the ramp and Cena points and yells at him from the bottom of the ramp. Cena turns around right into a CLOTHESLINE FROM REIGNS! Reigns looks down at Cena with a smug, angry look on his face. Reigns gets back into the ring and stalks Crews from the opposite corner as Crews gets to his feet. Reigns taunts, letting out a roar and goes for the SPEAR, BUT CREWS JUMPS OVER HIM CAUSING REIGNS TO CRASH INTO THE POST! Reigns stumbles out of the corner and turns around right into a SMALL PACKAGE by Crews...1...2...3! Crews wins!

    Winner: Apollo Crews

    Hamilton

    Here is your winner, Apollo Crews!

    Ranallo

    HE DID IT! APOLLO CREWS JUST PINNED ROMAN REIGNS!

    Graves

    I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS!

    Crews rolls out of the ring and joins Cena on the ramp excited as the crowd goes crazy for the surprise victory! Owens looks angry as does Reigns.

    Ranallo

    Believe it Corey! Even through the distraction from Kevin Owens, Apollo Crews still managed to pull out the victory using his incredible athletic talent with that leap to avoid the Spear.

    Graves

    Give the assist to John Cena because if it wasn’t for him distracting Roman Reigns, we would’ve seen the clean sweep.

    Ranallo

    Apollo Crews prevents the sweep and gets the biggest win of his career here in the main event of Smackdown in his hometown! Apollo Crews has given Team Cena some momentum and some hope just two weeks out from the huge clash at Survivor Series. Thank you for joining us here tonight on Smackdown! Stay tuned for Talking Smack!

    Talking Smack


    “Take A Chance” plays and we join Michael Cole and Alex Maverick at the Talking Smack set.

    Cole

    Welcome to Talking Smack! I'm your host, Michael Cole joined as always by the General Manager of Smackdown, Alex Maverick. What a busy night you had with the women's division.

    Maverick

    Well between Natalya disregarding my request at the beginning of the night and Charlotte and Dana complaining, it's going to be busy.

    McMahon

    We've seen you be a bit stricter recently. First last week with the Bray Wyatt Survivor Series stipulation that if he loses, he's gone from Smackdown and now tonight with Natalya having to out her #1 Contendership on the line. Is this a new Alex Maverick we're seeing?

    Maverick

    I don't know if I'd say "new." I've never been a pushover, personally or professionally. I felt things were starting to get out of control with Kevin Owens going to Raw to attack Cena and of course the whole Wyatt situation. I was trying to be lenient since this is pro wrestling and this stuff happens, but it just got too far. Bray Wyatt pushed me over the edge last week when he threatened Heath Slater's health. I want everyone to know that I'm not going to let things like that stand. This is the land of opportunity, not the wild wild west.

    Cole

    The woman put that to the test tonight and caused you to step in and make decisions, which some of the women found unfair.

    Maverick

    Let's be blunt... Natalya, Charlotte and Dana found unfair. Let me just say the women's division has been on fire. The competition is at an all-time high and I truly believe we have the best women's roster in the world today. But that doesn't excuse things like theft.

    Cole

    You are of course referring to Natalya stealing the Women’s World Championship from ringside last week and after being warned by you at the beginning of the show, attempted it again.

    Maverick

    Like you said, I was fair and gave her a warning. But she disobeyed me and so she had to pay the consequences, thus her putting her #1 Contendership on the line. That may have been controversial but I stand by it.

    Cole

    We also saw a bit of conflict between Charlotte and Dana Brooke after Dana's match with Sasha Banks.

    Maverick

    They came barging into my office trying to sell a crap excuse for her loss and I wasn't buying it. No harm, but then Charlotte got in my face and disrespected me. I was going to add her to the Becky/Natalya match but because of that, I opted not to and banned them both from attacking Becky.

    Cole

    Yet they made their way out anyway.

    Maverick

    You can tell she's Ric Flair's daughter. She's smart and cunning. She technically listened to me.

    Cole

    Well now next week on Smackdown, we have a huge tag team match where Charlotte will team up with the #1 Contender Natalya against Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks.

    Maverick

    They all want to fight each other so why not let them.

    Cole

    Speaking of tag teams, in two weeks we will see the World Tag Team Champions Rusev and Sheamus take on Enzo Amore and Big Cass. Earlier tonight, we got a glimpse of this when Sheamus took on Big Cass.

    Maverick

    You know, I was very impressed with both men there, especially Big Cass. To hang in a singles match against a former World Champion is nothing to scoff at.

    Cole

    Impressive indeed. However, Lana seems to be the x-factor for the champions.

    Maverick

    Lana has motivated these two into a very dominant team. I had my doubts when they first got together, but now I'm impressed. I would like to see Lana not getting involved though and that's something I may need to keep my eye open for as these teams go into battle. And I guess we'll see if she's a factor next week because we're going to have Rusev take on Enzo Amore.

    Cole

    You heard it here first ladies and gentlemen. The other half of the World Tag Team Champions Rusev will take on Enzo Amore just five nights to before the big title match at Survivor Series. And speaking of big matches at Survivor Series, let's welcome our guests at this time, Club members Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson!

    Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson walk onto the set and sit down.

    Welcome gentlemen.

    Anderson

    Thanks for having us.

    Cole

    We all got to see that exclusive interview with you two, AJ Styles and Finn Balor earlier tonight. It seems like you are all ready for the Wyatts at Survivor Series.

    Gallows

    We've never been more ready for anything in our lives. The Wyatts think they run this place and can terrorize anyone they want. But in two weeks, you may see the last of Bray Wyatt ever!

    Anderson

    And now that we have Finn joined up with us, nothing can stop The Club!

    Cole

    Now speaking of Finn Balor, we saw him and AJ Styles talk about their tension and it looks like their still may be some there.

    Anderson

    Cole, you have to understand. These are two of the most competitive men you'll ever meet. They want to be the best. So of course there will be some tension.

    Gallows

    Even though they didn't know each other and had reservations, we knew that they were both good brothers. And they will work together perfectly to rid Smackdown of the Bray Wyatt problem.

    Anderson

    We're not worried Cole. And once Survivor Series is over and the Wyatts are in our rear view mirror...

    Anderson turns towards Maverick.

    Gallows and I are looking to cash in our rematch for the World Tag Team Titles we never should've lost.

    Maverick

    Yes, I have not forgotten about that. Once Survivor Series is behind us, we will discuss you two getting your title rematch, whether it's against Rusev and Sheamus or Enzo and Cass...

    Just then on the other side of the table near Cole, the Dudley Boyz walk onto set with microphones in hand. They look bewildered at Maverick, Gallows and Anderson.

    Bubba

    Did I hear that correctly?! They get a World Tag Team Title match after Survivor Series?

    D-Von

    If anyone is getting the next Tag Team Title shot, it should be us!

    Bubba

    We just beat American Alpha...

    Bubba holds up two fingers.

    For the second time in a row. What have you two done? Get your asses kicked by the Wyatts?

    Gallows and Anderson are angry and look like they are about to get up to go at the Dudleys, but Maverick tries to keep them back and calm them down.

    Gallows

    COME HERE AND SAY THAT!

    Maverick

    Woah! Just settle down!

    Gallows and Anderson stand up but seem calmer.

    Anderson

    You think you're better than us? That's why we won the tag team title tournament and not you two right?

    The Dudleys get a bit hot but laugh it off.

    Bubba

    You won ONE title. We've won NINE! We are a cohesive team... brothers, unlike your little "Club."

    Gallows and Anderson perk up more at the comment.

    You really think that AJ Styles and Finn Balor are going to work together? That's laughable! They are not now and never will be on the same page. They are NOT brothers.

    Bubba points to himself and D-Von.

    WE are brothers!

    Anderson

    They can work together and they can certainly beat you two!

    The Dudleys scoff at the idea. Maverick seems intrigued.

    Maverick

    You know what? That's not a bad idea. Let's see how well those two will work against an established team five days before stepping in with the Wyatts. So next week on Smackdown, it'll be the nine time WWE World Tag Team Champions, The Dudley Boyz versus the Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor and the World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles!

    Both teams nod, liking the idea.

    D-Von

    Get ready to see your "brothers" turn against each other before your eyes!

    Gallows

    And you two get ready to get your ass whipped and go to the back of the line in the Tag Team Title hunt!

    The Dudleys, Gallows and Anderson walk away from the table in separate directions.

    Cole

    Wow! A lot of tension. But what a match for next week!

    Maverick

    I could've put Gallows and Anderson in that match, but I think it'll be a good test for Balor and Styles to see if they really can be a cohesive team. By the way, I don't want to sell the Dudleys short. They did have an impressive win tonight. But the former champs still have their contractual rematch so they will next in line after Survivor Series.

    Cole

    Well let's shift gears now to another match at Survivor Series, Team Owens vs. Team Cena. So let's welcome our next guest, a member of Team Cena, Apollo Crews!

    Apollo Crews walks onto the set and shakes both Maverick and Cole's hands with a big smile on his face before sitting down.

    Apollo, first off congratulations tonight on your huge victory over Roman Reigns. How are you feeling after that and to win in your home state?

    Crews

    It feels incredible! Tonight, I was in the main event on Smackdown, less than thirty minutes from my home. To just come out and hear that Georgia crowd on my side so strongly is a surreal moment in itself. And then to have John Cena out there to support me and to beat a former World Champion... words can't describe how good I feel right now!

    Maverick

    I don't think we've gotten to talk about this, but during the draft, Shane and I made a note to make sure we got you because we felt that you were so athletically gifted and you were a star waiting to happen. After all the criticism you and the rest of Team Cena has gotten, I wanted to test you tonight putting you in the main event to see how you'd handle the pressure. And you succeeded!

    Crews

    I really appreciate your faith in me. Like you said, our team has been getting criticism. Many have said it's very lopsided. But we know how good we are. Others may underestimate us, but we certainly don't. And I hope tonight, my win proved to some people that we do have a chance at Survivor Series.

    Cole

    Between the matches last night on Raw and tonight on Smackdown, going into your match, Team Owens had won every match. Was this extra pressure on you to get some momentum for your team?

    Crews

    I'd say so. We didn't want to be swept. We were just saying how Team Cena is being underestimated, so losing every match two weeks out from Survivor Series wouldn't have been good for our momentum. But I dug down deep and was able to beat the former World Champion Roman Reigns for a huge win! And at Survivor Series, I know we will keep that going and teach Team Owens a thing or two in respect...

    Just then, Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns walk onto the set on the opposite side of the table and stare down Crews with very angry looks on their faces.

    Owens

    Respect?! Respect?! How about the disrespect we've all gotten?! What about the disrespect shown tonight when Roman should've had the win but because of your buddy John Cena, you got a tainted victory?! You want to talk about respect...

    Reigns turns to Owens and motions for him to calm down and stop talking. Reigns steps up a bit and stares daggers at Crews.

    Reigns

    You got lucky tonight kid. At Survivor Series, there's no luck in the world that can protect you from the ass kicking I'm giving you And the rest of your pathetic team!

    Maverick is waving over security, who come over towards Owens and Reigns. Owens and Reigns shrug off the security.

    Owens

    We're leaving! We don't want to waste our time on this piece of crap show anyway.

    Owens and Reigns walk off the set.

    Cole

    Very hostile environment. It's going to be quite a battle at Survivor Series. Thanks for joining us Apollo!

    Crews

    Thanks for having me!

    Cole

    That's it for this week on Talking Smack. Join us next week for the last Smackdown before Survivor Series!

    Re: Amrocky25 & RatedR31 Presents WWE: We Are The WWE Universe

    WWE Presents…

    Monday Night Raw from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California

    Episode 16

    November 14th 2016

    “Just Give Up”

    The Monday Night Raw theme song and opening video plays before we go inside the home of the Los Angeles Clipper and Lakers.


    *PYRO*


    *PYRO*

    *PYRO*

    The crowd goes wild and we tons of signs and a plethora of different wrestling t-shirts and other accessories.


    Phillips


    This is Monday Night Raw from Los Angeles, California!

    JBL

    We’re just six days away from one of the biggest events of the year.

    *Announce Table*

    Phillips

    That’s right John this is the last Raw before Survivor Series and tonight-

    Tom presses his headset closer to his ear and he looks confused.


    Phillips


    I understand we are heading backstage now.

    *Backstage Area*

    We see the camera shaking indicating that the camera man is rushing to a particular scene, what it is is unknown at this point. After a few moments we see three referees form a large circle and we see Baron Corbin and Randy Orton trading blows. The crowd cheers before we see Corbin deliver a high knee to the gut of The Viper. He then grabs Orton and tosses his head first into a wall that displays a picture of Blake Griffin.


    JBL


    These two are beating the living hell out of each other.

    Phillips

    These two were supposed to have a no DQ match later tonight, but it seems like they couldn’t wait.

    Orton tries to crawl as Corbin sizes him up before delivering a swift kick to his ribs. Orton rolls and begins to cough. The referees try to get in between these two superstars, but the vicious Lone Wolf scares them off before he grabs Orton by the head and drags him through the tunnel and through the curtains.


    We see Orton get tosses through the curtains and rolls a few feet down the ramp. The referees continue to follow. Corbin turns to them backing two of them away while senior referee Mike Chioda stays. The crowd boos as Corbin poses atop the ramp. Orton works himself up to one knee as The Lone Wolf charges towards him but the Apex Predator lives up to his name as he counters into a SNAP SCOOP POWERSLAM ONTO THE RAMP! The crowd goes wild as Corbin surly felt the effects of that move. Corbin holds to his back as he crawls away on his knees down the ramp. Orton grabs Corbin by the pants and tosses him into the ring before following suit.
    The referee gets into the ring and Orton demands that Chioda rings the bell. Doing his referee duties he goes over to Corbin making sure he can continue. Corbin nods.

    Phillips


    And it looks like we’re gonna have this match right now!

    JBL

    What a way to kick off Monday Night Raw!

    Match 1 (No DQ): Randy Orton vs. Baron Corbin

    Match Summary: The bell rings and Orton like a snake pounces on Corbin delivering a series of right hands. Corbin sits to the ground and Orton backs away and goes to the opposite corner to compose himself. He looks into the crowd before slowly turning and seeing that the Lone Wolf is in perfect position for THE PUNT. The crowd is buzzing and starts to cheer as Orton revs himself up in the opposite corner. He charges and his head is nearly taken off by a CLOTHESLINE! Corbin checks his jaw before delivering a kick to the face of Orton. He delivers two stomps to the chest of Orton who is still reeling from that clothesline. Corbin then gets on top of Orton and delivers a series of rights on his own. Corbin then stands over Orton and the former Golden Gloves Boxer is firmly in the driver’s seat. He lets Orton work himself up before whipping him into the ropes. Orton is able to hook himself on the top rope causing his opponent to charge at him and Orton drops the top rope causing Baron to spill onto the outside.

    These two superstars are with close to the fans and we see Orton telling them to do. Clearly seeing the agitated state of the Viper they do as they wish as he shows nice strength getting his opponent in the air dropping him on the top of the barricade after a beautiful back suplex. Orton looks around as Corbin is reeling in pain. A sinister smile forms on the St. Louis native’s face. He goes over to the time keeper spot and grabs a steel chair. He folds it up before slapping it a few times. He measures Corbin up and delivers a shot to the ribs followed by a thunderous shot to the back. Corbin yells out in pain, but The Viper shrugs as he notices that the chair is no longer able to be used because it’s too bent. He grabs Corbin tossing him back into the ring before looking underneath the ring for more weapons. He finds more chairs and tosses five into the ring all in the same vincinity of each other. He gets into the ring and goes to attack Corbin who counters with a DEEP SIX ONTO THE CHAIRS! The crowd goes wild as not only Orton hit the chairs, so did Corbin. The Lone Wolf tries to shoot the half not getting all of it and only gets a two.

    Surprisngly Corbin begins to kick the chairs out of the ring. He has Orton and delivers a punch that staggers The Viper. To Orton’s credit he fires another right, but Corbin comes back with a right of his own which is followed by an Orton right. Finally Corbin picks up Orton locking in a bear hug, wrenching in on the back. Each time Orton tries to create separation Corbin applies more pressure. The crowd tries to get behind Orton and fatigue is now setting in on Orton who seems to be fading. The referee rasies his hand but Orton keeps it up. He delivers a right hand right between the eyes of Corbin who relinquishes the hold. Corbin quickly whips Orton into the corner, staying there. Corbin flies in but Randy gets a boot into his face. He then hits the inverted backbreaker. The crowd cheers are Orton notices Corbin roll under the bottom rope on the outside apron. He gets him to a vertical base before slamming him down head first with his signature SECOND ROPE HUNG DDT! The crowd goes wild as they know what is coming next. Orton slams on the mats and the crowd begins to cheer. Orton is setting up for the RKO.

    The camera then shows WWE CHAMPION CHRIS JERICHO RUNNING DOWN THE RAMP. HE HOPS ON THE APRON AND ORTON NOTICES HIM. Orton looks to punch him but holds it back. He knows the stipulation. Instead Jericho taunts him with the title and calls him a “Stupid Idiot” all the while Corbin is getting back to his feet. Corbin charges looking for a BIG BOOT-IT HITS THE CHAMPION! ORTON SIDESTEPPED IT! Corbin looks down at the fallen Jericho and is angry with himself. HE TURNS RIGHT INTO A RKO! Orton hooks both legs and gets the three count!

    Winner: Randy Orton

    Phillips

    The WWE Champion tried to get involved and he got burned by it and so do The Lone Wolf. Randy Orton pulls out a victory after getting blind-sided to kickoff Monday Night Raw.

    JBL

    If Orton hits that RKO at Survivor Series we will have a new WWE Champion!

    Orton at the nearest turnbuckle climbs the ropes and does his signature pose as the camera shows Jericho holding his jaw with gritting his teeth at the number one contender.
    Graphic of Kevin Owens and John Cena.

    Phillips


    Speaking of Survivor Series after weeks of sneaks attacks and other mind games the two captains John Cena and Kevin Owens will meet face to face.

    JBL

    I can’t wait to hear what both men have to say with their huge match just six days away.

    *Backstage Area*

    We see the New Day dancing backstage eating a box of Booty O’s as they make their way down to the gorilla area.


    Phillips


    Up next The New Day will be involved in a three on one duel against Gentleman Jack Gallagher, a match he asked for.

    JBL

    (sarcastically)

    This should be great…

    *Commercial Break*

    Back from the break we see the WWE Champion still favoring his jaw. He stops and the camera pans out to Nick Kennedy who has his arms folded.


    Kennedy


    You just don’t listen!

    Jericho

    What do you mean?

    Kennedy

    I tell you to stay away from Randy Orton for two weeks-

    Jericho

    Actually you told me not to touch him for two weeks you STUPID IDIOT!

    The crowd pops as Kennedy shakes his head.


    Kennedy


    Listen…I get it. You’re the “best in the world”, the current WWE Champion and a part time rockstar…

    (pauses)

    …a pretty damn good one at that.

    Jericho looks proud.


    Kennedy


    You’re use to being the center of attention.

    Jericho nods.


    Kennedy


    Since you want the attention, I’ll give it to you here tonight in Los Angeles!

    The crowd pops.


    Kennedy


    You’re in the main event against a mystery opponent.

    A small little smile appears on Kennedy’s face as Jericho doesn’t seem too pleased he has to compete tonight.


    Kennedy


    You may be the best in the world, but this superstar has competed all over the world and he’s ready to make a huge splash here in the United States. Good luck Chris!

    *Ringside*

    Phillips

    The WWE Champion is in the main event against a mystery opponent.

    JBL

    It could be anyone! The WWE Champion may be in trouble before heading to Survivor Series.

    *Les Toréadors*

    A light cheer for Jack Gallagher as he makes his Monday Night Raw in-ring debut. He waves at the WWE Universe as he walks down the ramp.


    JoJo


    This match is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first from Manchester, United Kingdom weighing in at one hundred and sixty seven pounds….Gentleman Jack Gallagher.

    Phillips

    Jack Gallagher is making his Monday Night Raw in-ring debut taking on all three members of The New Day. Jack prides himself on being a gentleman, inside and outside the ring.

    JBL

    He dresses like an idiot not a gentleman. It’s like he dresses in the dark every single day.

    Phillips

    I’m sure your opinion has nothing to do with Gentleman Jack making fun on your cowboy hat earlier.

    “Awwwwwwwwwwwww Los Angeles! Don’t you dare be sour! Clap for your world famous former two-time champs and feel the power!”


    “It’s A New Day, Yes It Is”



    *New Day, New Way*



    The New Day comes out to the crowd chanting “New Day Rocks” at the top of their lungs. Big E. is tossing Booty O’s into the WWE Universe while Woods blows on his trombone. Halfway down the ramp their music dies down and they show that they have microphones and want to say a few words.



    Big E.

    (full of energy)

    Jaccccckkkkyyyyy Boy!

    (lower)

    How are you?


    Gallagher doesn’t seem like he once to deal with the New Day antics.


    Kingston


    We’ve thought about this so-called “duel” for the last week and as much as we commend your positivity.

    Woods

    After all we are all about the positivity.

    Kingston

    We felt that three on one just wasn’t fair.

    Woods

    Especially against the former two time…

    (hip shaking)

    …W-W-E World Tag Team Championnsssssss!


    The crowd cheers as New Day is now at the bottom of the ramp.



    Kingston


    It wasn’t an easy decision, but we decided that…


    (pauses)


    …drum roll please.

    Big E. does a drum roll.




    Kingston


    That Xavier Woods will be your opponent tonight!

    The crowd cheers as Woods blows his trombone loudly.




    Woods


    And I promise I will be gentle mannnnnnn.


    (turns to his fellow New Day members)


    Get it…get it?!?!

    Big E. nods.




    Big E.


    We got it!


    Kingston


    Jericho would be impressed.

    Crowd laughs.



    Woods


    Becauseeeeee…


    Kingston/Woods/Big E.


    New.Day.Rocks. NEW.DAY.ROCKS! NEW.DAY.ROCKS!

    The crowd continues the chant as Woods gets into the ring. He checks all his ring gear and nods at the referee signifying that he is ready.




    Match 2: Jack Gallagher vs. Xavier Woods


    Woods leaves his corner as does Gentleman Jack. Jack goes to lock up but Woods tells him to hold up. Xavier extends his hand out for a handshake. Jack pauses and studies it for a few moments. Woods turns to Big E. and Kofi and can be heard mocking Jack somewhat saying a “gentleman’s handshake”. Instead of a handshake he gets a GENTLEMAN’S HEADBUTT TO THE CHEST NEARLY CAVING IT IN. The impact rang out throughout the arena as Jack Gallagher immedietly goes for the pin and gets a three count!


    Winner: Jack Gallagher

    The rest of the The New Day is in shock as Gallagher gets his hand raised by the referee throwing up his signature peace sign.




    JBL


    Goodnight Xavier Woods! Did you hear that impact?!?!?


    Phillips


    That wasn’t very gentleman like from Jack Gallagher.


    JBL


    Being a gentleman is overrated. I was a gentleman to all my ex wives and look where that got me.

    Big E. confronts Jack screaming at him that it wasn’t very gentlemanly while Kofi checks on Woods who is holding his chest. He then joins E. and the two start to approach Jack backing him into a corner. Jack is cornered as both men are yelling at Gallagher. He may have to headbutt his way out of this predicament…


    OR MAYBE NOT! FROM BEHIND THE VAUDEVILLIANS KNOCK DOWN BIG E. AND KOFI. The crowd boos as Gotch and English dissect one of the top tag teams on Monday Night Raw! They continue to boo as they keep Kofi down. They turn to Big E. and both toss him outside the ring. Woods goes to get up and tries to grab Gotch, but Gallagher cuts him off and delivers a huge uppercut that sends Woods reeling into the corner. The Vaudevillians picks up Kofi and nail THE WHIRLING DERVISH. GALLAGHER FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A GENTLEMAN’S DROPKICK TO WOODS. All three memebers of The New Day are outside the ring reeling in pain.
    Gallagher immediately turns and looks ready to fight The Vaudevillians. However, they motion towards him in a friendly gesture as the former NXT Tag Team Champions both extend their hands out. Gallagher hesitates for a few moments before shaking both of their hands.



    Phillips


    This is an unpredictable series of events. Two weeks ago The Vaudevillians attacked Jack Gallagher. Now they’re coming to his aid!


    JBL


    The Vaudevillians have had their run-ins with The New Day and have always been on the losing end. Maybe Jack Gallagher is the key.

    The New Day are licking their wounds as they stumble up the ramp while Jack and The Vaudevillians stand tall inside the ring.




    *Backstage Area*

    We see Renee Young with black top and black pants. She has red lip-stick on and her hair is styled in a bun. She looks at the camera.




    Young


    Please welcome my guest at this time...she is the number one contender to the WWE Women’s Championship Emma!

    Emma sporting her ring attire including sunglasses and purple lipstick walks into the frame. Even though she is wearing sunglasses you can tell she is rolling her eyes. She folds her arms and Renee senses it.




    Emma


    Let’s get this over with. I’m only here because Nick told me I had to.


    Young


    (sighs)


    Well…


    (pauses)


    Um…this Sunday you take on Paige at Survivor Series, but tonight you have a huge six women tag match that features you on a team with Tamina and Eva Marie who was impressive last week and pinned the champion last week…


    Emma


    Eva Marie only pinned the champion because of me.


    (pauses)


    And who’s impressed? I’m sure as hell not. Why are we talking about Eva Marie? We should be talking about me.

    Renee rolls her eyes.




    Emma


    Come this Sunday at Survivor Series I will once again pin Paige and become the new WWE Women’s Champion.

    Emma smirks before confidently walking away before we head to commercial break.




    *Commercial Break*



    *Backstage Area*

    Back from the commercial break we see The Vaudevillians and Jack Gallagher all together walking back towards the locker-room area. Even though they just shook hands, they are not buddy-buddy quite yet. Into the frame appears Renee Young.



    Young


    Can I have a quick word with you guys-


    Gallagher


    (waving his finger)


    Gentleman!


    Young


    (off-guard)


    …RIGHT! Gentleman…

    Gallagher gives an approving nod.




    Young


    The WWE Universe seems to be in shock after what we just witnessed. Why did you guys come to the aid of Jack Gallagher?


    Gotch


    It’s like the saying goes…an enemy of my enemy is a friend. Well that holds true tonight.


    English


    We may have misjudged Jack. He clearly hates the New Day as much as us.


    Gallagher


    Actually…hate is a strong word. More like strongly dislike.


    (pauses)


    Don’t get me wrong they are a very talented team, but a very immature one. They wiggle their hips, play horrible pranks, tell terrible jokes, eat surgary cereal and tell people they are buttocks. I’m just trying to bring a little more class and sophistication here to the WWE.

    He turns to The Vaudevillians and smiles.




    Gallagher


    And I’m glad to have these gentlemen by my side.

    Both members of The Vaudevillians smile and nod before the trio leaves.




    *Ringside*


    *What’s Up (Golden Truth Remix)*

    Inside the ring we already see R-Truth and Goldust. Truth is in the middle of his rapping.




    *Sierra…Hotel…India…Echo…Lima…Delta…SHIELD*


    *Retaliation*

    The happy expression of Golden Truth immediately changes as we see Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins enter from behind the curtains. They stand atop the ramp and turn to face Roman Reigns. The crowd cheers as all three members of The Shield make their way down to the ring.




    JoJo


    This match is scheduled for one fall. Their opponents accompanied to the ring by Roman Reigns… the team of Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.


    JBL


    Look at the faces of Golden Truth. It’s like they seen a ghost!


    Phillips


    It’s been a long time since we seen these three head down to the ring together. Of course they are three members of Team Owens.


    Match 3: The Golden Truth vs. Dean Ambrose/Seth Rollins w/Roman Reigns


    Match Summary: Golden Truth never stood a chance as Ambrose and Rollins would make quick work of them. As soon as the bell rang both men attacked Golden Truth. Rollins hit Truth with a Falcon Arrow causing him to roll to the outside of the ring. Ambrose would then land the DIRTY DEEDS AND WOULD PIN GOLDUST FOR A THREE COUNT!


    Winners: Dean Ambrose/Seth Rollins


    Phillips


    The Shield reunion is in full swing and they make quick work of The Golden Truth.


    JBL


    I’m sure John Cena and the rest of his team is watching in the back and are now put on notice.

    R-Truth is up on the outside but is laid out by a huge SPEAR FROM THE BIG DOG! Reigns then gets inside the ring and stands over Goldust who is at his feet. Ambrose and Rollins flank both sides of Goldust. Reigns let’s out a warcry before Ambrose and Rollins get Goldie back up to his feet. TRIPLE POWERBOMB DELIVERED BY THE SHIELD! The crowd boos as they look at the fallen Goldust.




    JBL


    That is an image I missed. Can’t wait to see these three along with Tye Dillinger and Kevin Owens at SummerSlam.

    Raw graphic of John Cena and Kevin Owens.




    Phillips


    I’m sure John Cena will sound off on this later tonight, when the two captains meet face to face six days before Survivor Series.


    JBL


    Two combustable superstars in that ring. I won’t be surprised if they don’t only exchange words.


    Phillips


    But up next…

    Match graphic of six women tag action. Tamina, Emma and Eva Marie on one side with Nikki Bella, Paige and Bayley on the other.




    Phillips


    …the women’s division will be on full display as we have six women tag action!


    *Commercial Break*


    *Backstage Area*

    We see the Shield walking backstage barely sweating even though they just had a match. We hear clapping and into the frame appears Tye Dillinger with a cocky grin on his face.




    Dillinger


    That performance was obviously a…


    (holds ten fingers up)


    …PERFECT TEN.


    Rollins


    (laughs)


    Feels good to be back.

    The feel good vibes quickly die down as Renee Young sheepishly walks into the frame.




    Young


    I was wondering if I could have a few words for you.


    ??? (O.S.)


    Absolutely not!

    Into the frame appears Kevin Owens who receives a few boos.




    Owens


    You and the rest of the WWE Universe will just have to wait later tonight, when John Cena and I are face to face inside that ring.


    (scoffs)


    If John Cena is man enough to show himself tonight.

    The crowd boos as Owens motions for his team to follow him off the frame and they do.




    *Ringside*


    *Time to Rise*

    The arena lights turn a shade of red and the crowd fills the arena with boos as out in a red robe appears Eva Marie. The Brian Kendrick is a few shorts steps behind her. He lightly cheers for her, although he doesn’t seem that enthusiastic.




    JoJo


    This match is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first from Los Angeles, California….Evaaaaa Marieeeee!


    Phillips


    Eva Marie looking to continue her winning ways here tonight in tag team action after an impressive victory against Paige.


    JBL


    Whether Emma was a distraction or not it’s still the biggest win of her career. Another win here tonight and she has to be considered well on her way for a shot at the WWE Women’s Championship.


    *Tropical Storm*

    Tamina walks down the ramp with purpose. The crowd boos, but Tamina doesn’t seem to care staying focused on this match.




    JoJo


    Her partner from The Pacific Islands…Tamina!


    Phillips


    Tamina is one of if not the strongest woman in the division. Last week she attacked Nikki Bella backstage.


    JBL


    Remember Nikki Bella did pin Tamina two weeks ago. Clearly Tamina didn’t get over the sting of that lost.


    *Real Deal*

    Evil Emma walks out with confidence. She walks down the ramp as the fans boo.




    JoJo


    Their partner from Melbourne, Austrailia….Emma!


    Phillips


    Since returning from injury Emma has been impressive and is now the number one contender to the WWE Women’s Championship. She will take on Paige six nights from now.


    JBL


    What a match that is going to be!


    *You Can Look (But You Can't Touch)*

    Nikki Bella is all business as she comes out and does no theatrics whatsoever. She just goes right down to the ring.




    JoJo


    Their opponent from Scottsdale, Arizona…Nikkkki Bella!


    Phillips


    Nikki Bella is looking for some revenge after being blindsided last week.


    JBL


    We’ve talked about the impact Emma has made returning from injury. Nikki Bella is still looking to get back on track.


    Phillips


    Don’t forget before getting injured Nikki Bella was having one of the best runs of her career.


    JBL


    Absolutely! Longest reigning Divas champion and some may argue was holding the division down before the Women’s Revolution came through.


    *Turn It Up*

    Bayley comes out to a huge pop. She takes a few steps atop the ramp before raising her arms high in the air as inflatable arm flailing tubeman on each side of her start to wave in the air.




    JoJo


    Her partner from San Jose, Calfornia….IT’S BAYYYYLEY!


    Phillips


    I spoke to Bayley earlier today and she looked forward to tagging with Nikki Bella, someone she looked up to while down at NXT.


    JBL


    I’m sure she’s also happy to be tagging with one of her best friends in Paige.


    Phillips


    Of course!


    *Stars in the Night*

    Paige flashes a little smile before skipping sideways down the ramp making sure to flash her championship around her waist for everyone to see.




    JoJo


    Their partner from Norwich, England….Paiggggeeee!


    Phillips


    Paige will be looking to pick up a much needed win after what happened last week, losing to Eva Marie, although Emma takes the credit.


    JBL


    I completely agree with Emma. Do you think Eva Marie can defeat Paige on her own?


    Phillips


    Uh…not really.


    JBL


    Exactly!


    Match 4: Eva Marie/Tamina/Emma vs. Nikki Bella/Bayley/Paige


    Match Summary: As soon as the bell rang all six women did battle. Nikki faced off against Tamina. Bayley squared off with Eva Marie and Emma did battle with her Survivor Series opponent Paige. The heels are tossed out of the ring and they need to regroup. The faces stand tall inside the ring as they wait patiently to see what the heels will do. The heels do the smart thing and choose the powerhouse Tamina, while Bayley will get things started for her team. Tamina’s strength gets her team the advantage. From there we see tags as all three women beat down Bayley.


    We join the action as Eva Marie makes a tag to Emma. The two girls combine for a suplex on former NXT Women’s Champion. Emma takes a few steps and then knocks Paige off the apron. She laughs at Paige and turns back around and Bayley pulls out a back body drop! This is the opening she needs to make the tag. Nikki reaches as far as she can for a tag as her partner slowly crawls over to her. Bayley makes the tag to Nikki and Emma tags in Eva Marie. Nikki hits her with a clothesline before knocking Tamina off the apron with a low dropkick. Nikki then grabs Eva and hits another clothesline. To Eva’s credit she’s right back up but is sent back down as Nikki delivers a kick to the gut and follows it up with a snap DDT. She goes for the pin but Emma breaks it up!


    Emma goes to toss Nikki out of the ring but Nikki counters and sends Evil Emma to the outside and right at the feet of Paige who has a smile on her face. Back in the ring Nikki is crouched in the corner, sizing Eva Marie up for a maneuver. Paige and Emma are exchanging punches on the outside and tugging on each other’s hair. We then see Bayley climb to the top rope. BAYLEY JUMPS FROM THE TOP ROPE AND HITS PAIGE! Emma was able to back peddle out of the way at the last second. Bayley starts to apologize to the fallen Paige and from behind the number one contender grabs Bayley and tosses her shoulder first into the ring post.


    The referee is trying to control all the chaos on the outside as all his attention is on that. Inside the ring Nikki hits Eva with a spear that would make Edge jealous! Before she can attempt the pin Tamina hits her with a superkick that the referee did not see. Tamina then grabs the lifeless body of her partner and drapes her arm over Nikki Bella before rolling to the outside of the ring. The ref turns and counts the three for the victory!


    Winner: Tamina/Eva Marie/Emma

    Tamina helps Eva Marie up and raises her hand, while Emma is still on the outside laughing at both Bayley and Paige.




    Phillips


    Once again Emma’s distraction on the outside causes an Eva Marie victory.


    JBL


    Not only that, Tamina blindsided Nikki Bella who had that match firmly in her grasp.


    Phillips


    That is now two straight victories for Eva Marie.


    JBL


    I’m sure her mentor The Brian Kendrick will be elated!


    *Backstage Area*

    We see The All-American, American Jack Swagger doing push-ups inside the locker room. He does about ten before boots come into the frame. He pops up and we see the boots belong to Cesaro! The crowd cheers as both men nod at each other.




    Cesaro


    Jack tonight is huge! Last week The Usos and Darren Young were able to pick up a victory. If we can pick up a victory tonight we have all the momentum on our side heading into Survivor Series.

    Swagger nods.




    Swagger


    I couldn’t agree more. If we pick up the win tonight Team Miz stands no chance this Sunday at Survivor Series against Team Swagger.

    Cesaro seems taken back as Swagger continues to talk.




    Swagger


    I have no doubt we-


    Cesaro


    I’m sorry to interrupt but did you just say….Team Swagger?


    Swagger


    I did!

    Jack has a huge grin on his face, showing off those pearly whites.




    Cesaro


    I think it’s pretty obvious that it’s my team.


    Swagger


    (confused)


    Team Cesaro?

    The King of Swing nods.




    Swagger


    It’s Team Swagger!


    Cesaro


    Team Cesaro!

    The two partners are now face to face with each other.




    Swagger


    Team Swagger!


    Cesaro


    Team Cesaro!


    Swagger


    It’s Team Swagger and I’ll prove that tonight when I pick up the victory for our team.


    Cesaro


    Not if I get the win first.

    Swagger rolls his eyes and walks past Cesaro.




    Swagger (O.S.)


    Team Swagger!

    Cesaro leaves the frame.




    Cesaro (O.S.)


    Team Cesaro!

    The scene fades to black as we get to another commercial break.




    *Commercial Break*

    We see a match graphic of The New Day on one side and The Vaudevillians with Jack Gallagher on the other side.




    Phillips


    Just announced during the commercial break on the Survivor Series preshow it will be six man tag action as The New Day will take on The Vaudevillians and Jack Gallagher.

    Match graphic of Team Swagaro and Team Miz.




    Phillips


    They may have not a team name but Jack Swagger and Cesaro with The Usos and Darren Young will take on Team Miz consisting of his fellow A-Listers and the WWE Tag Team Champions The Revival in a traditional Survivor Series five verse five elimination tag team match.

    Match graphic of Team Cena and Team Owens




    JBL


    That’s not the only traditional Survivor Series elimination tag team match. Team Cena will be taking on Team Owens with both Raw and Smackdown superstars on both teams. This is gonna be a good one!

    Match graphic of Randy Orton and Chris Jericho.




    Phillips


    Can Randy Orton claim the WWE Championship this Sunday as he takes on Chris Jericho, who still has a match tonight in our main event?


    JBL


    Randy pulled out an impressive victory earlier. If he hits that RKO this Sunday you can almost guarantee a new champion.


    *Ringside*


    “AWWWESSSSOOMMMEEE”


    *I Came To Play*

    First appears the A-List couple and they do their usual taunt atop the ramp. Tyler Breeze follows behind along with Alberto Del Rio. Miz may be a “movie star”, but he is hated by the fans as are the rest of the A-Listers.




    JoJo


    This match is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, accompanied to the ring by Alberto Del Rio and Maryse…representing the A-Listers, Tyler Breeze and the United States Champion….THE MIZZZZZZZZ!


    JBL


    I heard The Miz this past Friday was invited to an exclusive red carpet event here in L.A. I also heard he is working on getting himself a star on the Walk of Fame.


    Phillips


    Seems like they’re giving those out to anyone now…


    JBL


    You hold your tongue. How dare you disrespect the Miz like that?




    *Patriot*

    The crowd cheers as Jack Swagger comes out from behind the curtains. He stands atop the ramp put his hand over his heart before the whole arena screams “We The People”.




    *Swiss Made*

    The ringing alarms hit the arena and the crowd goes wild. Cesaro nods as both men walk down towards the ring.




    JoJo


    Their opponents the team of Jack Swagger and Cessaaarooooo!


    Phillips


    Both of these superstars have been on the wrong end of the numbers game when it comes to The Miz but this Sunday the odds will be even as they will have The Usos and Darren Young by their side.


    JBL


    They may have the numbers on their side, but let’s not forget these are two highly competitive superstars. Not only have they’ve both been gunning for the United States championship; they b
