Sunday Night Heat: Shelton Benjamin def. Matt Striker
Shelton squashes the teacher in two minutes.
Team Smackdown! (World Heavyweight Champion Batista & Rey Mysterio) def. Team Raw (Snitsky & Tyson Tomko)
Mysterio was chosen by the fans over Chavo Guerrero, JBL and Hardcore Holly to be Batista's partner. Tomko would take the place of Edge, who refused to wrestle, saying he didn't care about representing Raw. Tomko and Snitsky quickly gained the early advantage in the match, as they took the upper hand over Mysterio. Mysterio fought back with a tilt-a-whirl, a counterattack hold. Afterwards, Batista and Snitsky were tagged in, leading to Batista getting the advantage as he delivered a spinebuster on Snitsky. Back and forth action took place between both teams. The match ended when Mysterio performed the 619 on Snitsky, before Batista performed the Batista Bomb on Tomko. Mysterio pinned Tomko to give SmackDown! the win over Raw.
Big Show & Kane def. Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch(c) to win the World Tag Team Championship
Show and Kane received the two lesser amount of votes in the WWE Title #1 contender's poll, forcing them to team up. The match began with Show and Kane dominating Cade and Murdoch early on. Cade and Murdoch fought back after Murdoch shoved Kane off the top turnbuckle. They performed a running chop block combination on Kane and taking the upper hand. Show, who was tagged in, used his body size to his advantage as he squashed Cade and Murdoch. The match concluded after Show and Kane delivered a Double Chokeslam and Show pinned Cade to win the title with Kane. After the match, Show and Kane teased fighting each other before they double teamed Murdoch, performing a chokeslam.
Eugene def. Jonathan Coachman
Eugene won a poll over Goldust, Jim Duggan and Val Venis to be Stone Cold Steve Austin's replacement against Coach. Eugene performed a Stunner on Coach, which proceeded with Eugene delivering a Rock Bottom to Coach for the win.
Mankind def. Rob Conway
Conway's disrespect of the WWE legends put him in a position where could face Mankind, Jimmy Snuka, Vader or Kamala. The match began when Conway performed a clothesline on Mankind. However, Mankind got the advantage over Conway. Midway through the match, Mankind tried to use a steel chair on Conway, but Conway avoided, executing drop toe-hold, sending Mankind into the steel steps. Mankind rose to his feet, which led Conway to perform another clothesline, resulting in Mankind to hit the back of his head into the steel steps. Back in the ring, Mankind received the upper hand after delivering a DDT and forced Conway to submit with the Mandible claw and win the match. After the match, the other legends came down and attacked Conway.
Kurt Angle def. Shawn Michaels to become the #1 contender to the WWE Championship at Survivor Series
The two fought to a draw in their Iron Man Match at Raw Homecoming and led the poll for the #1 contender. Angle performed a variety of suplexes on Michaels. Angle Angle Slammed Michaels from the top turnbuckles. Angle then tried to apply the ankle lock on Michaels, who escaped. Toward the end, Michaels attempted another Sweet Chin Music after the first resulted in a nearfall. Angle caught Michaels in the ankle lock, making him submit to earn a title shot. After the match, both men shook hands.
Trish Stratus(c) wins a Battle Royal to retain the Women's Championship after eliminating Victoria last
Other participants included Ashley, Candice Michelle, Mickie James, and Maria. In the match, James saved Stratus from being eliminated from the match, after Victoria tried eliminating her. Maria was tossed over the top rope by Stratus and James, thus being the first to be eliminated. Afterward, Michelle applied a submission move on Ashley on the top rope. Michelle turned around and was knocked off the ring apron by Ashley, making the second elimination of the match. Following the elimination of Michelle, Ashley was then eliminated by Victoria. The match concluded after Victoria hesitantly tried to eliminate Stratus, but James stopped her from doing so. James eliminated herself along with Victoria to allow Stratus to win and retain her Women's title.
Carlito & Chris Masters def. Intercontinental Champion Ric Flair & Triple H in a Steel Cage Match
Triple H does not betray Flair at Raw Homecoming. During the match, Carlito and Masters sent Flair head-first into the steel cage, bloodying Flair's from the head. In one point, Carlito retrieved a steel chain from Triple H, wrapped it around his fist and attempted a diving fist drop from the top turnbuckle. However, Flair countered, raising his foot to Carlito's face and performed a series of knife edged chops. Triple H and Flair controlled most of the match, until Flair attempted to apply the figure four leglock, resulting in Masters sending him towards the steel cage. After that, Flair bit Carlito's head, bloodying him from his forehead, as a desperation move. The match ended when Masters reversed a Pedigree with a back body drop and Carlito hit Flair with a steel chair three times, allowing the heels to escape through the steel cage door to win the match. After the match, Triple H helped Flair to the back but couldn't help but be disappointed and annoyed with his mentor.
John Cena def. Christian(c) in a Submission Match to win the WWE Championship
Christian won the WWE Title at Unforgiven after defeating Cena by disqualification. The fans chose a Submission Match over a Street Fight and a regular match. Early in the match, Cena performed a back body drop on Christian, sending him outside. Mid-way in the match, Cena lifted Christian in the air, crashing him face-first on the Spanish announce table. Christian then tried to apply a Texas Cloverleaf on Cena, but Cena reversed it and proceeded to back body drop Christian. Cena attempted to perform a Five Knuckle Shuffle but Chrstian kicked him in the head. Christian pulled Cena out of the ring, tossing him over the security barricade, but realized he couldn't win via countout. After entering back into the ring, Cena executed a STF on Christian and submitted him to regain the title.
As Cena celebrated, Edge attacked Cena with the Money in the Bank briefcase. Edge attacked Cena with a Spear and then attempted to cash in his contract but Matt Hardy, who had been fired from Raw, attacked him before the match could actually begin. Hardy then executed a Twist of Fate on Edge before revealing a Smackdown! t-shirt to close the show.

2020.10.26 18:28 nickyv917 How WWE Should Have Booked Asuka

Today, we're going to be talking about maybe my favorite female competitor of all time, the Empress of Tomorrow, the most dominant force that WWE has seen since maybe Hulk Hogan, Asuka. In NXT, she was the best champion they've ever had, but since she came to the main roster, she's seen some success, but she's also been hamstrung by some of the most baffling booking decisions ever that turned a dominant force of nature into a moderately strong, but kinda dumb upper-midcarder on the main roster. That's horrible, and it needs to be fixed. So let's fix it. In today's post, I'm going to try and fix Asuka's first two-and-a-half years on the main roster. From her debut in October 2017 all the way until Wrestlemania 36 in April of 2020. That should be more than enough time to get her back on track from a, shall we say, mixed start.
But let's start all the way back at her debut in 2015 on NXT. She was given the royal treatment on her way into the company, showing up in the crowd at Takeover: Brooklyn I next to Ric Flair, getting vignettes to hype up her debut, and signing her in-ring contract about a month later, which was interrupted by Emma and Dana Brooke. One week later, they were called into William Regal's office, and were shown an Asuka training montage. We couldn't see it, but we could hear punches, kicks, and screams, and we could see the horror on Emma and Dana's faces. They immediately knew that they had just made the worst mistake of their lives. From there, Asuka beat Dana at the next Takeover, Emma at the one after that, and just continued to rack up wins. In just over two years on the NXT roster, Asuka was pinned or submitted ZERO TIMES. In fact, she only competed in five matches that she didn't outright win. Three of them were Fatal 4-Ways on house shows where she didn't eat a pin, one was a house show tag match where she lost, but didn't eat a pin, and presumably killed and ate the heart of her former partner for handing her an L, and the fifth was in a #1 contender's battle royale on NXT TV, where she was eliminated late by Eva Marie and Nia Jax, aka the worst and second worst female wrestlers of all-time, I'll let you decide who goes where. (By the way, the match was actually won by Carmella, this will be important.) And also good news, Asuka kicked both of their asses just a few weeks later.
Soon enough, Asuka won the NXT Women's Championship from Bayley at Takeover: Dallas, and it was smooth sailing from there, perfectly undefeated on TV from then on. She ended up holding the NXT Women's Title for 523 days, longer than any John Cena World Title reign, longer than CM Punk's WWE Title reign, longer than the New Day's Tag Title reign of 2015-2016, even longer than Brock Lesnar's longest reign as Universal Champion. The only title reign in WWE's modern era that lasted longer was Pete Dunne's UK Title reign, and for like half of that reign, he didn't even have a show to call his own. There is a case to be made for Asuka being WWE's greatest champion ever. On the Mt. Rushmore of great NXT performers, Asuka is like three of them. And she also had some epic matches in that time: against Bayley both at Takeover: Dallas, and an even better sequel at Takeover: Brooklyn II; against Mickie James at Takeover: Toronto (probably Mickie's best match), an awesome Last Woman Standing match with Nikki Cross on TV, and two amazing matches with Ember Moon at Takeover: Orlando and Brooklyn III, the latter of which was her NXT swansong thanks to an injured collarbone, but this would be perfect timing, as now she would be ready for a callup.
And it was immediately messed up. Once vignettes started airing for her main roster debut, a bunch of women lined up to talk about how they were going to show Asuka a thing or two about the main roster. One of them, and the one who ended up getting Asuka's first main roster match at TLC 2017 was Emma! You know, the same Emma who looked like she's watching a snuff film back in Regal’s office? Yea, she's gonna be the one to bring her down a peg or two. Obviously she didn't, Asuka wrecked shop, and went on a really great run after that. She was the sole survivor for the Raw Women's team at Survivor Series, she won the first ever Women's Royal Rumble, and even won the first Mixed Match Challenge alongside the Miz to give her a little dose of comedic charm. However, this was all building to Wrestlemania 34, with Asuka challenging Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women's Championship. This was the litmus test. This would tell us just how all in the Dub was on Asuka. They weren't all in. Charlotte ended the legendary undefeated streak of Asuka at 914 days. At least it was a great match, easily the best women's match in Wrestlemania history, and it showed the world, at the very least, that Asuka belonged in that upper tier of women's competitors.
And besides, if they had Charlotte end the undefeated streak of Asuka, then they must be building up Charlotte for even bigger things, right? receives note Oh wait no, she lost the title to Carmella two nights later, via Money in the Bank cash-in. ... You know what, that's fine too I guess. Time was running out on her briefcase, and they probably wanted a strong Women's Champ on Raw since Ronda Rousey was about to be there, so Carmella couldn't go there, and they probably thought Carmella beating Charlotte would do less damage than Carmella beating Asuka, so fair enough, as long as Carmella is the transitional champion between Charlotte and Asuka, that's just fine. receives note Ok, let's see here, Asuka lost to Carmella at Money in the Bank after James Ellsworth returned, dressed in Asuka's clothes and caused a distraction. Like seriously, she just stood there for what felt like a goddamn eternity, mesmerized by this dork Ellsworth. Then Asuka lost to Carmella again at Extreme Rules with Ellsworth in a shark cage, after the cage was lowered to rescue Ellsworth, and Carmella rammed Asuka's head into the cage. And just like that, her mystique was gone.
Not long after that, she was relegated to a battle royal at Evolution, which she lost. Asuka and Naomi lost to the IIconics at Super Showdown, where at least she didn't eat the pin. She was eliminated at Survivor Series by Nia Jax less than a week after Nia exploded Becky Lynch's face, and she even lost Season 2 of the Mixed Match Challenge to Carmella and R-Truth, because Carmella is somehow Asuka's biggest rival. But things finally turned around for her in late November when she won a battle royal to join Charlotte and Becky Lynch in a TLC match for the Smackdown Women's Title, which she finally won!!! She got help from Ronda Rousey who pushed over the ladder that had Becky and Charlotte on it, but WHO CARES, ASUKA IS CHAMPION AT LAST!!!! From there, she had a match with Becky Lynch at the Royal Rumble, which ruled, and a match against Mandy Rose at Fastlane, which did not. But they had to be building up to Charlotte vs. Asuka II at Mania 35, like they just had to, with Becky off fighting Ronda for the Raw Title, this had to be the match. receives note I really don't like this bit anymore...
Asuka lost the title to Charlotte two weeks before Mania, so that they could shoehorn Charlotte into the Becky/Ronda match and make it a winner take all thing, leaving Asuka totally out of the Mania main card. She ended up in the pre-show women's battle royal, which surprise surprise was won by friggin' Carmella. She then teamed with Kairi Sane to become the Kabuki Warriors, because that's what the most dominant wrestler of my lifetime needs: backup. She was off TV for a shockingly long time, like they became a team right after Mania, and only had one televised match for like ten weeks. But they did eventually win the Women's Tag Titles in October, and had a pretty unremarkable run with it. She had another great match with Becky Lynch at the Rumble, which is now a yearly tradition. And then they lost the tag titles to BlissCross Applesauce at Mania 36. Well that was another year wasted, when are they finally going to pull the trigger on Asuka and let her dominate like I know she can?
receives note Oh boy, this again. Asuka won the Money in the Bank briefcase? receives another note And inside the briefcase was the Raw Women's Championship, which Becky Lynch had to vacate because of a pregnancy? OK, this is all good, but at this point, I'm kinda just waiting for the other shoe to drop. receives third note Yep, there it is, her second reign sucked balls. Versus Nia Jax at Backlash, double countout. Versus Nia the next night on Raw, win via fast count. Versus Charlotte on Raw, win via pre-match assault on Charlotte by Nia. Versus Sasha at Extreme Rules, no contest when Bayley put on the ref uniform and awarded Sasha the win. And finally Asuka lost the title to Sasha on Raw via COUNTOUT, to save Kairi Sane from a Bayley beating, which she didn't do, because that was the last time we saw Kairi in WWE. She did regain the Raw Title from Sasha at Summerslam, but not before losing to Bayley for her Smackdown Women's Title, because it’s impossible for Asuka to have a good day in WWE. Then she retained against Mickie James via botch, and had an actually pretty good match against Zelina Vega and that's where Asuka is now.
Granted, she is a Women's Grand Slam Champion, and they don't hand her many clean losses. But it seems like they know they shouldn't give her clean losses, so the bookers find every possible loophole, so that the losses she does take aren’t necessarily clean, but they still make her look dumb in the process. So let's fix that.
We begin with the vignettes that started airing for Asuka's debut in September of 2017. Now at this point, Triple H and Stephanie are trying to decide on where to place Asuka, and who her first opponent should be, and they land on Emma. She had some good matches with Asuka, and would make a good showcase to those who've never seen her. Emma's called into their office, and she's told that they want her to fight Asuka at the next PPV, and Emma tells them "absolutely not". Haitch and Steph are a bit stunned by this, why would Emma pass up this golden opportunity? Emma responds, "Fighting Asuka is like fighting a damn Terminator. You throw everything at her, you can hit her with your best shot, and she'll turn around, smile at you, and send it right back to you. I've fought her twice in NXT, and that's more than enough for my lifetime." This may make Emma look a bit cowardly, but she's a heel and that's not a character breaker, at least for me. And having Asuka be so intimidating that seasoned veterans like Emma are refusing to fight her will definitely turn some heads, I think. They keep asking around, and are having a hard time finding people willing to get in the ring with her. They've all either fought her in NXT, or have seen the carnage she brings. But there is one person who won't back down from Asuka, who isn't afraid of what Asuka may do to her, and that someone is Bayley.
Around this time, we're about three months removed from Bayley losing a match because she was too much of a wuss to use a kendo stick on Alexa Bliss, and around this time, she had just been cleared to return from a shoulder injury. She needs a rebound for her character. She needs to prove to everyone that she's learned from the humiliation she suffered at the hands of Alexa Bliss. And stepping into the ring with Asuka when no one else seems willing seems like a good case for Bayley getting her nerve back. Bayley does decently well against Asuka and fights valiantly, but the match is never really in doubt, and Asuka wins comfortably with the Asuka Lock. By the way, for this run, hopefully we can make Asuka a total tweener, just someone who craves competition, and will square up to anyone.
Next night on Raw, Asuka is set to face some jobber. The jobber is standing in the ring waiting for her opponent, and when Asuka's music hits, she nopes right out of there. She wants no part of Asuka, she tries to run up the ramp when Triple H stops her. The jobber doesn't want to get throttled by Asuka, and says she won't even ask for any money, she just wants out. Haitch offers to double her money, but she still says no. He ups it to triple money, she thinks and still says no. Haitch looks very annoyed, and glances at the crowd who clearly wants to see an Asuka match, and says "five times what you were getting". The jobber thinks, glances at Asuka, and weakly nods. She walks down to the ring, but Asuka rolls out to meet her, and she goes berserk on the jobber. Jobber girl takes a series of kicks and strikes and Asuka puts her away with the Asuka Lock. Afterwards, it's announced that women who compete against Asuka will receive five times what they normally receive for a match, so that they can actually have people willing to compete against her. Bayley says on Twitter that she wished that rule was in effect for her match, half-jokingly.
From here until Wrestlemania, I would change virtually nothing. This was the best period of her main roster run, mostly because she never friggin' lost. The Survivor Series match is particularly great here, because oddly enough, none of the women on the Smackdown side of this match had ever fought Asuka in NXT (Becky Lynch, Naomi, Carmella, Natalya, and Tamina). The only one who was in NXT at the same time as her was Carmella, and the one match they competed in together was that battle royale that Carmella won, so they could go into that match with plenty of unwarranted confidence. That confidence is wiped away when Asuka taps out Carmella and Naomi in the first two minutes. From there on, Asuka doesn't compete that much, let the match rebalance itself, until we get to the final two of Asuka and Natalya. Nattie pulls out all of her Hart tricks, but it's not nearly enough, and Asuka is the sole survivor.
I'd also like to throw in a match for her at Clash of Champions. At the real event, Asuka wasn't on the card, but I think a match against Mickie James would be really solid here. Their match at Takeover: Toronto was really good, and they could build on it, and further legitimize her with another win here. After that, she wins the Royal Rumble, no changes there, and she refuses to shake Ronda Rousey's hand, that was good. Not even the Baddest Woman on the Planet fazes her. She beats Nia Jax at Elimination Chamber to avoid her being added to Asuka's Mania match, and then at Fastlane, she challenges Charlotte to a match at Mania.
And here is where we start making big honkin' changes to the timeline, because at Mania 34, Asuka wins the Smackdown Women's Title. If you want to convince your casual, non-NXT-viewing audience that Asuka is as good as we who saw her in NXT think she is, you need to present her similarly, and a strong four months followed by a loss at Mania ain't gonna do that. So you have her win here, and let her soak in the joy of winning the title at Mania, instead of instantly taking away from that moment by making it about John Cena's fixation on the Undertaker. So Asuka is the champion now, but Charlotte thinks she has a plan for getting the title back. Charlotte thinks that Asuka is a flash in the pan, and that she can go hard out of the gate, but will tire out after a while. So, drawing influence from the 60-minute Broadways that her father would put on in the NWA, Charlotte challenges Asuka to a 30-minute Ironwoman match at Backlash. If nothing else, she claims that even if she doesn't win the title, she'll be the first person to make the Empress tap out. Hopefully that'll make the fans worry that her "never been pinned or submitted" streak will end here, but thankfully it doesn't. Asuka wins the match two falls to zero, but Charlotte comes really close to making Asuka tap, bridging the Figure-Four into the Figure-Eight just as time expires.
The next two pay-per-views show Asuka fighting against inferior competition who have a couple of tricks up their sleeves. At Money in the Bank, she fights Carmella. In this timeline, not only does she not have the Money in the Bank briefcase (she cashed it before Mania at some point), but she also already has James Ellsworth in her corner, and he tries to get involved in their title match at Money in the Bank, but gets kicked in the jaw so hard that the swelling finally gives him a chin, and from there, Asuka cruises to a victory. Then at Extreme Rules, Asuka fights both of the IIconics in a handicap match. Peyton and Billie get some offense going thanks to a couple of cheap shots, but Asuka makes Billie tap in the Lock.
Next comes Summerslam, and this part is tricky, because this is where the attempted Becky Lynch heel turn happened that accidentally turned her into a megastar. But we can solve that with basically the same match as in real life, just replace champion Carmella with champion Asuka. Doesn't that feel better? Like in real life, Charlotte wins the match by pinning Becky, and this causes Becky to fly off the handle and attack Charlotte afterwards. A rematch takes place at Hell in a Cell where the three women compete inside the Cell. These women throw everything at each other, and Becky wins the match, this time by pinning Charlotte. So we've managed to take the title off Asuka without pinning her, and let Becky and Charlotte have a run with the Smackdown Women's Title while their story is red-hot. Asuka can miss out on the next month or so of programming, no need to have her complicate a good story here.
The next time we see Asuka is at Evolution, where she winds up in the battle royale for a future title shot, and of course she wins the darn thing, last eliminating Nia Jax. The title match won't happen at Survivor Series though, as Becky Lynch is busy with Ronda Rousey, er I mean, busy getting her brains scrambled by Nia Jax, so she's once again in the 5-on-5 women's elimination match. Now at the real show, Raw pitched a shutout so that Baron Corbin could keep his GM job, but he lost it a month later anyway, and the whole storyline kinda sucked anyway, so let's kill it here. The women's elimination match opens the show, and Asuka once again has a really good showing here. Near the end, it comes down to Asuka and Naomi for Smackdown and Nia Jax for Raw. Corbin comes out to cheer on Nia, but he gets hit by a flying Rear View from Naomi, and Asuka wraps up Nia for the tap. Smackdown wins, this dumb storyline is put to bed immediately, so we don't have to think about it for the rest of the show, and just for good measure, Asuka kicks Baron in the head to put him out of his misery.
Asuka finally gets to cash in her title shot against Becky Lynch at TLC in a TLC match. And these two go absolutely mental on one another with ladder shots and dives. In the end, like in real life, Ronda Rousey comes out at the end, and tips over Becky's ladder as she's just fingertips away from the title. Yea, this might feel a bit like a cheap win for Asuka, but Ronda and Becky have been going back and forth on Twitter for months now, and this will be the opening salvo in their eventual Wrestlemania main event feud. So after Becky is taken out by Ronda, Asuka swoops in and takes the title. For those looking for a Rousey-less version of this match, may I interest you in their match the following month at the Royal Rumble, where Becky and Asuka fight one more time in a steel cage? This match opens the show, and they go fifteen minutes without ever once thinking about leaving the cage, because they're warriors. Asuka wins the match here, but Becky comes back at the end of the night and wins the Royal Rumble.
After this, Asuka gets a couple more title defenses under her belt. Naomi has been asking for a title shot for months after winning the Survivor Series match with Asuka, as well as having a strong showing in the Women's Royal Rumble. The match is competitive and won by Asuka. At Fastlane, it's Sonya Deville's turn. Mandy Rose got the match here in real life, but Sonya has more upside, so she'll get the match here, with Mandy at ringside. Sonya's MMA background actually matches up well against Asuka's submission and striking game, so Asuka has to pull some new stuff out of her bag, like maybe some aerial moves. Asuka scores another win here.
Wrestlemania 35 has to be Asuka vs. Charlotte, they're the two biggest women on the Smackdown side to go along with Becky and Ronda on the Raw side. In the build-up, Charlotte can talk about how much of a down year it's been for her. She's had so many title opportunities, and she’s only won one of them, she didn't even get to celebrate it, and she lost it a month later. And this crummy year started with her loss to Asuka, so a win over her here would be the start of her redemption. But don't feel too inspired by Charlotte's story, it's basically just "I'm a Flair, why am I not holding a title right now?" At the Mania match, Charlotte throws everything she can at Asuka, but it does nothing. Asuka kicks out of a Big Boot at 1. She takes back-to-back Natural Selections and kicks out at two. She gets put in the Figure-Four, but Asuka reverses the pressure. Charlotte's thinking "what do I have left?". But then, she has an evil little epiphany. She "accidentally" takes down the ref with a Big Boot, and she calls for another ref. And that ref is Charles Robinson. Oh no. Byron Saxton immediately knows that something's fucky. Charlotte puts Asuka in the Figure-Four, and as soon as Robinson gets in the ring, he calls for the bell. Asuka loses the match via screwjob, ending her undefeated streak at 1,278 days. WWE loves to do this kind of finish, but here it would have some real heft to it.
In real life, Charlotte ended Asuka's undefeated streak, but didn't do much with it. She lost the title to Carmella right afterwards, and has only had a handful of short reigns since then, none of them lasting longer than a pay-per-view or a Takeover cycle. At least Brock killing the Streak turned him into a monster again, and he went on the run of his life not long after. But in this story, ending Asuka's undefeated streak by screwing her over like this would turn Charlotte into the most detestable person on the face of the Earth. For her to steal Asuka's streak like this would just be the worst, and it would galvanize people against Charlotte. Also, by doing it this way, you can actually get two rubs from Asuka's streak, this one and whoever actually beats her cleanly down the road. Just have the face commentators say that Asuka never really lost, it would still work.
After the bell rings, Robinson and Charlotte am-scray and Asuka is bewildered. She goes to the first ref and pleads her case but to no avail, it wasn't his decision. Then she sees Robinson and Charlotte halfway up the ramp and she puts two and two together. She marches up the ramp, and Charlotte wants no part in Asuka's fury, so she literally throws Robinson in front of her, and Asuka feasts on Robinson's bones. She spends the next couple of minutes absolutely decimating Robinson until the other refs try to make the save, but no dice. Robinson is a dead man walking, and Asuka beats him down to the point where we don't see him again after this. Charlotte watches this from the top of the ramp, and thinks "I won the title, but what did it cost?" And Asuka basically responds "everything".
Next Smackdown, Charlotte comes out with a mile-wide smile. She gloats about ending the undefeated streak of Asuka, and berates the fans for siding against the greatest Women's Champion of all time. She also reveals that because Asuka laid hands on a ref, she's been suspended for thirty days. Ha ha ha. But that doesn't stop Asuka from trying to get another score of revenge. She hops the barricade, but gets held back by an army of refs, while Charlotte points and laughs. Suddenly though, Asuka breaks free, gets in the ring, and unleashes a flurry of punches on Charlotte. It looks like a scene from Fist of the North Star and Charlotte is already dead. Eventually, Asuka's dragged away by the police, and Charlotte is clutching her title, almost in the fetal position.
From there, Asuka's suspension is lengthened from 30 days to 90 days. During the Superstar Shake-Up, Bayley comes over from Raw, and stands up for Asuka. She says that screwing over Asuka like that was "a coward move", and if that's what Charlotte's snuck to, then she'll be easy pickings for her. Also during this time, it might be wise for Charlotte to get someone to help her from ringside. I mean, she is a Queen, maybe she needs a Princess? Maybe one from the Staten Island part of New York? I think Charlotte and Carmella would make a nice, little pairing while Charlotte is the champ.
Bayley gets three shots at the Smackdown Women's Title. First up, Money in the Bank, standard match, Carmella brains Bayley with the Title, and holds down Bayley's feet while Charlotte covers her. Charlotte scores the win. Next up, Stomping Grounds, Carmella’s banned from ringside. Bayley's doing well here, and may be on the verge of a win, but when Bayley is down in the corner and the ref goes to check on her, a pair of brass knuckles goes flying into the ring from the crowd. Charlotte catches it, but the person who threw it isn't seen on camera. Charlotte slips them on and KO punches Bayley. Finally at Extreme Rules, these two fight in a steel cage match. Once again, Bayley is looking good, until Carmella reaches through the hole of the cage and grabs Bayley's leg. She pulls her leg into the hole, trapping Bayley in the cage wall. Charlotte looks very satisfied, and starts to climb out of the cage. As she turns to wave goodbye to Bayley, Asuka's music hits. Her suspension would be up by now, and she full-sprints down to the cage, and climbs up it, meeting Charlotte at the top. Carmella manages to grab Asuka's leg and tries to yank her back down, but Asuka is able to climb back down and gives a righteous beating to Carmella. So now Charlotte’s on a time-limit; she needs to end the match before Asuka gets done munching on Carmella, so she drops back into the ring, and just starts booting Bayley in the head over and over again. Charlotte thinks she’s got the win here, so she pulls Bayley out of the cage wall, and covers but Bayley just barely kicks out. Carmella’s been killed off by Asuka by now, and she’s starting to climb the cage, so all Charlotte can do is bolt up the opposite wall to escape the cage. Charlotte gets over just as Asuka lands in the ring, and survives the cage match, but she knows what’s coming next, and she has to stop it from happening.
On the next Smackdown, it’s announced for Summerslam, Asuka vs. Charlotte for the Smackdown Women’s Title. Charlotte and Carmella storm into Trips and Steph’s office, and demand to know why Asuka is being rewarded with a title shot. “The last memory we had of Asuka before last Sunday was of her breaking her suspension to earn an even longer suspension. She shouldn’t be getting title shots, she should be in jail.” Steph calms her down and says that for starters, Asuka’s never got her rematch from Wrestlemania. But she also says that in the contract for the match, Asuka has to play nice in the build to Summerslam. If she attacks either Charlotte or Carmella in the build-up, the match is off. But if they attack Asuka, then she’s free to defend herself. Charlotte and Carmella glance at each other and they know what they have to do: piss off Asuka. They spend the next four weeks doing whatever they can to provoke a reaction. They trash Asuka’s locker room, they crash her rental car, they beat down Bayley, who’s become something like Asuka’s friendly rival by this point. At one point, Charlotte even makes some racist comments toward Asuka. Now normally I don’t like racism to be used as a heel tactic (it feels lazy), but if the goal is to provoke a reaction, it might be just the ticket. Asuka nearly bites there, but restrains herself and walks away. Go home show to Summerslam, Charlotte and Asuka sign the contract for Summerslam, and Charlotte spends the whole time talking about how she’s going to retain the title, and hold it for the next decade, and how there’s nothing Asuka can do to stop it. Asuka simply says “For now, I can’t, but she can”, and Bayley slides in behind Charlotte and smashes her in the head. Bayley tries to fight them 2-on-1, but can only do so much. After a bit of a beatdown, Charlotte’s holding Bayley up, telling Carmella to hit Bayley with a Superkick. But as she goes for it, Asuka dives in front of the kick and takes the Superkick for Bayley. Carmella has now officially laid hands, er feet, on Asuka, meaning she’s free to defend herself, and she does so with extreme prejudice. Asuka annihilates Carmella, and when Charlotte goes to try to save her partner, she can’t, because doing so will require attacking Asuka, and that would mean they’d have to fight. So Charlotte throws up her hands and walks away, leaving Carmella to fruitlessly tap out in the Asuka Lock.
At Summerslam, Carmella’s out of the picture, and it’s just Charlotte and Asuka, and Charlotte is being humbled, she gets blown up at every opportunity by Asuka, who’s just having fun out there. After one particularly rough sequence, Charlotte’s just like “nope, I’m done here”, and peaces out, running fast as her beaten up legs will carry her. She loses by countout, but retains. Charlotte spends the next several weeks just trying to hide from Asuka basically, because she knows Asuka wants blood. For Clash of Champions, it’ll be these two again, this time Falls Count Anywhere so that Charlotte can’t try to leg it. Charlotte goes to Steph and Triple H again, but this time, instead of confidently trying to disparage Asuka, she’s nervous, paranoid, and panicky. She doesn’t want this kind of match, and legitimately begs for the stipulation to be removed. Steph tells her to get a hold of herself, and says that the match will go on as announced, and that Charlotte is the champion, hell Charlotte is the Queen, and she needs to remember that and start conducting herself as such. So Charlotte sucks it up, and straightens her posture, thanks Steph and leaves. Although, PG swearing can be heard on the other side of the door as Charlotte storms off in frustration. Right before the match happens, Asuka knows that Carmella will be assisting Charlotte in this match, so Asuka stalks Carmella backstage, and once she’s alone, Asuka pounces on her, locking her in the Asuka Lock, and once she’s worn out, she throws her in a closet, and props the door shut. Charlotte comes out first, wondering where in the world Carmella is, but an evil smile from Asuka during her entrance gives her all the information she needs. The two get to brawling and the action spills backstage pretty quickly. Charlotte knows her best bet is to find Carmella, so they can team up on Asuka. So she spends more time opening every door looking for Mella, then actually engaging with Asuka. After about ten minutes, Charlotte eventually finds the locker room and frees Carmella, but by this point, they’re both on spaghetti legs. Asuka dispatches Carmella one more time, puts Charlotte in the Lock, and Charlotte taps out. Asuka is back on top.
Hell in a Cell is next, but by this point, Charlotte is just tired. She’s been put through the Asuka meat grinder a bunch by this point, and Charlotte is about done with her. But Carmella motivates her to pick her chin back up and to keep being the Queen of WWE. And this is just enough to get Charlotte going again. Charlotte wins a #1 contender’s match, she wins a couple of big matches on Smackdown, and by the time the PPV rolls around, it’s actually Charlotte’s idea to put the match in the Cell. Asuka happily agrees, these two have met in the Cell before, two years ago alongside Becky Lynch, and now they’ll face off one more time. This is probably Asuka and Charlotte’s most competitive match, Charlotte looks particularly strong here, and pushes Asuka to her absolute limit, but after a grueling 25-minute match, Asuka just defeats Charlotte and walks away with the belt. Carmella consoles a frustrated Charlotte in the post-match, and they go on to win the Women’s Tag Titles not long after this.
Next is Survivor Series, and the match is once again a triple threat between the three women’s champions, Asuka as Smackdown Champ vs. Becky Lynch as Raw Champ vs. Shayna Baszler as NXT Champ. This match will rule, these three women are maybe the best in the business at what they do (Becky as a beloved face, Shayna as a total asshole, and Asuka as being Asuka). The three women trade the advantage back and forth, but in the end, Asuka has the Asuka Lock on Shayna, but Becky makes the save. Becky and Asuka go for a bit before Asuka puts the Lock on Becky, Becky is moments from tapping when Shayna knees Asuka in the head, locks on the Kirifuda Clutch, and taps out Becky. Shayna wins the match, and afterward, Asuka is fuming. On the next Raw, Asuka comes out, screaming in Japanese at Becky, but Becky calms her down by talking back to her in Japanese, and Asuka simply replies “you don’t deserve that title”, and storms off. Couple weeks later, Asuka wins a multi-brand battle royale for a shot at the Raw Women’s Title, much like the one that happened in real-life before Summerslam 2020. In this match, we get the final two of Asuka and Shayna Baszler, and after some intense back-and-forth, Asuka takes out Shayna. Asuka faces off with Becky Lynch at TLC, and during this match, Becky Lynch takes Asuka’s left arm to town. She plays a smart, submission-based game with Asuka, where she never relents on the arm, constantly softening it up for the Dis-Arm-Her. Near the end of the match, Asuka gets the Lock on, but her arm is having trouble keeping Becky in place, so it’s basically just a rear choke instead of the Asuka Lock, and Becky manages to free herself, slam Asuka’s face to the mat, and lock on the Dis-Arm-Her. Asuka stays in the hold for a long time, but finally after a full minute in the hold, Asuka… taps. After 1,530 days, more than four years, Asuka has cleanly tasted defeat at the hands of The Man, Becky Lynch. Becky is stunned, she was sure she could win, but even still, seeing Asuka tap is like seeing God bleed. Becky celebrates her win while keeping a wary eye on Asuka to make sure she doesn’t snap. Eventually, Asuka gets up and gets face-to-face with Becky and tells her, “you were ready for Asuka”. Asuka raises Becky’s hand and pays her respect before bowing and leaving the ring to let Becky celebrate for real. The torch has officially been passed.
From here on, we see a much more reserved and, dare I say, friendly Asuka. She could still turn you into a jigsaw puzzle, but now she can kind of relax a bit. For the Royal Rumble, Bayley earns a shot at the title, and Asuka is happy to give her friend a chance, they start getting real buddy-buddy. In the build, Asuka and Bayley actually earn a crack at Charlotte and Carmella’s Women’s Tag Titles. They lose that match, with Charlotte pinning Bayley. Charlotte runs off, celebrating like she just won the everything, finally happy in the knowledge that she technically beat Asuka. But the loss doesn’t get to Asuka like it would in days past. Asuka and Bayley fight at the Rumble, and it’s a fun back-and-forth match where Bayley ends up looking pretty good, but Asuka just gets the win. At Elimination Chamber, she faces a new target, Alexa Bliss. In this story, she still has Nikki Cross in her corner, but they’re both heel, with Nikki working as Alexa’s deranged enforcer. Alexa is absolutely ruthless in this match, absolutely taking it to Asuka, with Nikki getting in little pot-shots wherever she can. Alexa straight-up dominates a lot of the match, but Asuka snags a lucky Asuka Lock and forces Alexa to tap. Asuka survives, but something seems off.
Finally, we’re on the Road to Wrestlemania, and the Royal Rumble winner, Shayna Baszler has a decision to make. Does she get a rematch with Rhea Ripley, who just took her NXT Women’s Title? Does she face Becky Lynch, who Baszler made tap at Survivor Series? Or does she go for Asuka, who seems to be ripe for the picking? It’s announced on the first Raw after Elimination Chamber that Shayna will make her decision. All three women’s champions meet in the ring and await Shayna’s decision. When Shayna gets in the ring, she first addresses Rhea. She says that that title isn’t worth her time anymore, she wants that Wrestlemania payday, so she tells Rhea to take a hike, which she does. This leaves just Becky and Asuka, when suddenly Ronda Rousey sneaks in, and bashes Becky, while Shayna goes for Asuka. After a quick beatdown, Rousey has Becky in her Armbar, while Shayna has the Kirifuda Clutch on Asuka, and the two Mania matches take shape. Later, Shayna reveals that she picked Asuka for two reasons. One: Becky and Ronda have some unfinished business, so Shayna basically let Ronda take Becky. And two: Asuka has gone soft, “she’s no empress, she’s a clown who tries and fails to be a badass”. And she confidently boasts that there’s nothing Asuka can do that she isn’t ready for. On the first night of Wrestlemania 36, Ronda defeats Becky to reclaim the Raw Women’s Title with the help of the other Horsewomen. Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir win a Four-Way Tag Match against the champs Charlotte and Carmella, Bayley and Sasha, and the IIconics, and then on Night Two, it’s Shayna vs. Asuka, and Asuka gets bodied. Shayna just comes out of the gates swinging, and never relents, never gives Asuka a moment of reprieve, and just batters her, winning convincingly with the Kirifuda Clutch. From there, all four MMA Horsewomen hold the main roster gold, and Asuka may need a couple of months to regroup and come back stronger, but that I think is enough for now. I’m nearly at the character limit, so thanks guys and I’ll see y’all later.
I'm back.

2020.10.26 18:25 nickyv917 How WWE Should Have Booked Asuka

Today, we're going to be talking about maybe my favorite female competitor of all time, the Empress of Tomorrow, the most dominant force that WWE has seen since maybe Hulk Hogan, Asuka. In NXT, she was the best champion they've ever had, but since she came to the main roster, she's seen some success, but she's also been hamstrung by some of the most baffling booking decisions ever that turned a dominant force of nature into a moderately strong, but kinda dumb upper-midcarder on the main roster. That's horrible, and it needs to be fixed. So let's fix it. In today's post, I'm going to try and fix Asuka's first two-and-a-half years on the main roster. From her debut in October 2017 all the way until Wrestlemania 36 in April of 2020. That should be more than enough time to get her back on track from a, shall we say, mixed start.
But let's start all the way back at her debut in 2015 on NXT. She was given the royal treatment on her way into the company, showing up in the crowd at Takeover: Brooklyn I next to Ric Flair, getting vignettes to hype up her debut, and signing her in-ring contract about a month later, which was interrupted by Emma and Dana Brooke. One week later, they were called into William Regal's office, and were shown an Asuka training montage. We couldn't see it, but we could hear punches, kicks, and screams, and we could see the horror on Emma and Dana's faces. They immediately knew that they had just made the worst mistake of their lives. From there, Asuka beat Dana at the next Takeover, Emma at the one after that, and just continued to rack up wins. In just over two years on the NXT roster, Asuka was pinned or submitted ZERO TIMES. In fact, she only competed in five matches that she didn't outright win. Three of them were Fatal 4-Ways on house shows where she didn't eat a pin, one was a house show tag match where she lost, but didn't eat a pin, and presumably killed and ate the heart of her former partner for handing her an L, and the fifth was in a #1 contender's battle royale on NXT TV, where she was eliminated late by Eva Marie and Nia Jax, aka the worst and second worst female wrestlers of all-time, I'll let you decide who goes where. (By the way, the match was actually won by Carmella, this will be important.) And also good news, Asuka kicked both of their asses just a few weeks later.
Soon enough, Asuka won the NXT Women's Championship from Bayley at Takeover: Dallas, and it was smooth sailing from there, perfectly undefeated on TV from then on. She ended up holding the NXT Women's Title for 523 days, longer than any John Cena World Title reign, longer than CM Punk's WWE Title reign, longer than the New Day's Tag Title reign of 2015-2016, even longer than Brock Lesnar's longest reign as Universal Champion. The only title reign in WWE's modern era that lasted longer was Pete Dunne's UK Title reign, and for like half of that reign, he didn't even have a show to call his own. There is a case to be made for Asuka being WWE's greatest champion ever. On the Mt. Rushmore of great NXT performers, Asuka is like three of them. And she also had some epic matches in that time: against Bayley both at Takeover: Dallas, and an even better sequel at Takeover: Brooklyn II; against Mickie James at Takeover: Toronto (probably Mickie's best match), an awesome Last Woman Standing match with Nikki Cross on TV, and two amazing matches with Ember Moon at Takeover: Orlando and Brooklyn III, the latter of which was her NXT swansong thanks to an injured collarbone, but this would be perfect timing, as now she would be ready for a callup.
And it was immediately messed up. Once vignettes started airing for her main roster debut, a bunch of women lined up to talk about how they were going to show Asuka a thing or two about the main roster. One of them, and the one who ended up getting Asuka's first main roster match at TLC 2017 was Emma! You know, the same Emma who looked like she's watching a snuff film back in Regal’s office? Yea, she's gonna be the one to bring her down a peg or two. Obviously she didn't, Asuka wrecked shop, and went on a really great run after that. She was the sole survivor for the Raw Women's team at Survivor Series, she won the first ever Women's Royal Rumble, and even won the first Mixed Match Challenge alongside the Miz to give her a little dose of comedic charm. However, this was all building to Wrestlemania 34, with Asuka challenging Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women's Championship. This was the litmus test. This would tell us just how all in the Dub was on Asuka. They weren't all in. Charlotte ended the legendary undefeated streak of Asuka at 914 days. At least it was a great match, easily the best women's match in Wrestlemania history, and it showed the world, at the very least, that Asuka belonged in that upper tier of women's competitors.
And besides, if they had Charlotte end the undefeated streak of Asuka, then they must be building up Charlotte for even bigger things, right? receives note Oh wait no, she lost the title to Carmella two nights later, via Money in the Bank cash-in. ... You know what, that's fine too I guess. Time was running out on her briefcase, and they probably wanted a strong Women's Champ on Raw since Ronda Rousey was about to be there, so Carmella couldn't go there, and they probably thought Carmella beating Charlotte would do less damage than Carmella beating Asuka, so fair enough, as long as Carmella is the transitional champion between Charlotte and Asuka, that's just fine. receives note Ok, let's see here, Asuka lost to Carmella at Money in the Bank after James Ellsworth returned, dressed in Asuka's clothes and caused a distraction. Like seriously, she just stood there for what felt like a goddamn eternity, mesmerized by this dork Ellsworth. Then Asuka lost to Carmella again at Extreme Rules with Ellsworth in a shark cage, after the cage was lowered to rescue Ellsworth, and Carmella rammed Asuka's head into the cage. And just like that, her mystique was gone.
Not long after that, she was relegated to a battle royal at Evolution, which she lost. Asuka and Naomi lost to the IIconics at Super Showdown, where at least she didn't eat the pin. She was eliminated at Survivor Series by Nia Jax less than a week after Nia exploded Becky Lynch's face, and she even lost Season 2 of the Mixed Match Challenge to Carmella and R-Truth, because Carmella is somehow Asuka's biggest rival. But things finally turned around for her in late November when she won a battle royal to join Charlotte and Becky Lynch in a TLC match for the Smackdown Women's Title, which she finally won!!! She got help from Ronda Rousey who pushed over the ladder that had Becky and Charlotte on it, but WHO CARES, ASUKA IS CHAMPION AT LAST!!!! From there, she had a match with Becky Lynch at the Royal Rumble, which ruled, and a match against Mandy Rose at Fastlane, which did not. But they had to be building up to Charlotte vs. Asuka II at Mania 35, like they just had to, with Becky off fighting Ronda for the Raw Title, this had to be the match. receives note I really don't like this bit anymore...
Asuka lost the title to Charlotte two weeks before Mania, so that they could shoehorn Charlotte into the Becky/Ronda match and make it a winner take all thing, leaving Asuka totally out of the Mania main card. She ended up in the pre-show women's battle royal, which surprise surprise was won by friggin' Carmella. She then teamed with Kairi Sane to become the Kabuki Warriors, because that's what the most dominant wrestler of my lifetime needs: backup. She was off TV for a shockingly long time, like they became a team right after Mania, and only had one televised match for like ten weeks. But they did eventually win the Women's Tag Titles in October, and had a pretty unremarkable run with it. She had another great match with Becky Lynch at the Rumble, which is now a yearly tradition. And then they lost the tag titles to BlissCross Applesauce at Mania 36. Well that was another year wasted, when are they finally going to pull the trigger on Asuka and let her dominate like I know she can?
receives note Oh boy, this again. Asuka won the Money in the Bank briefcase? receives another note And inside the briefcase was the Raw Women's Championship, which Becky Lynch had to vacate because of a pregnancy? OK, this is all good, but at this point, I'm kinda just waiting for the other shoe to drop. receives third note Yep, there it is, her second reign sucked balls. Versus Nia Jax at Backlash, double countout. Versus Nia the next night on Raw, win via fast count. Versus Charlotte on Raw, win via pre-match assault on Charlotte by Nia. Versus Sasha at Extreme Rules, no contest when Bayley put on the ref uniform and awarded Sasha the win. And finally Asuka lost the title to Sasha on Raw via COUNTOUT, to save Kairi Sane from a Bayley beating, which she didn't do, because that was the last time we saw Kairi in WWE. She did regain the Raw Title from Sasha at Summerslam, but not before losing to Bayley for her Smackdown Women's Title, because it’s impossible for Asuka to have a good day in WWE. Then she retained against Mickie James via botch, and had an actually pretty good match against Zelina Vega and that's where Asuka is now.
Granted, she is a Women's Grand Slam Champion, and they don't hand her many clean losses. But it seems like they know they shouldn't give her clean losses, so the bookers find every possible loophole, so that the losses she does take aren’t necessarily clean, but they still make her look dumb in the process. So let's fix that.
We begin with the vignettes that started airing for Asuka's debut in September of 2017. Now at this point, Triple H and Stephanie are trying to decide on where to place Asuka, and who her first opponent should be, and they land on Emma. She had some good matches with Asuka, and would make a good showcase to those who've never seen her. Emma's called into their office, and she's told that they want her to fight Asuka at the next PPV, and Emma tells them "absolutely not". Haitch and Steph are a bit stunned by this, why would Emma pass up this golden opportunity? Emma responds, "Fighting Asuka is like fighting a damn Terminator. You throw everything at her, you can hit her with your best shot, and she'll turn around, smile at you, and send it right back to you. I've fought her twice in NXT, and that's more than enough for my lifetime." This may make Emma look a bit cowardly, but she's a heel and that's not a character breaker, at least for me. And having Asuka be so intimidating that seasoned veterans like Emma are refusing to fight her will definitely turn some heads, I think. They keep asking around, and are having a hard time finding people willing to get in the ring with her. They've all either fought her in NXT, or have seen the carnage she brings. But there is one person who won't back down from Asuka, who isn't afraid of what Asuka may do to her, and that someone is Bayley.
Around this time, we're about three months removed from Bayley losing a match because she was too much of a wuss to use a kendo stick on Alexa Bliss, and around this time, she had just been cleared to return from a shoulder injury. She needs a rebound for her character. She needs to prove to everyone that she's learned from the humiliation she suffered at the hands of Alexa Bliss. And stepping into the ring with Asuka when no one else seems willing seems like a good case for Bayley getting her nerve back. Bayley does decently well against Asuka and fights valiantly, but the match is never really in doubt, and Asuka wins comfortably with the Asuka Lock. By the way, for this run, hopefully we can make Asuka a total tweener, just someone who craves competition, and will square up to anyone.
Next night on Raw, Asuka is set to face some jobber. The jobber is standing in the ring waiting for her opponent, and when Asuka's music hits, she nopes right out of there. She wants no part of Asuka, she tries to run up the ramp when Triple H stops her. The jobber doesn't want to get throttled by Asuka, and says she won't even ask for any money, she just wants out. Haitch offers to double her money, but she still says no. He ups it to triple money, she thinks and still says no. Haitch looks very annoyed, and glances at the crowd who clearly wants to see an Asuka match, and says "five times what you were getting". The jobber thinks, glances at Asuka, and weakly nods. She walks down to the ring, but Asuka rolls out to meet her, and she goes berserk on the jobber. Jobber girl takes a series of kicks and strikes and Asuka puts her away with the Asuka Lock. Afterwards, it's announced that women who compete against Asuka will receive five times what they normally receive for a match, so that they can actually have people willing to compete against her. Bayley says on Twitter that she wished that rule was in effect for her match, half-jokingly.
From here until Wrestlemania, I would change virtually nothing. This was the best period of her main roster run, mostly because she never friggin' lost. The Survivor Series match is particularly great here, because oddly enough, none of the women on the Smackdown side of this match had ever fought Asuka in NXT (Becky Lynch, Naomi, Carmella, Natalya, and Tamina). The only one who was in NXT at the same time as her was Carmella, and the one match they competed in together was that battle royale that Carmella won, so they could go into that match with plenty of unwarranted confidence. That confidence is wiped away when Asuka taps out Carmella and Naomi in the first two minutes. From there on, Asuka doesn't compete that much, let the match rebalance itself, until we get to the final two of Asuka and Natalya. Nattie pulls out all of her Hart tricks, but it's not nearly enough, and Asuka is the sole survivor.
I'd also like to throw in a match for her at Clash of Champions. At the real event, Asuka wasn't on the card, but I think a match against Mickie James would be really solid here. Their match at Takeover: Toronto was really good, and they could build on it, and further legitimize her with another win here. After that, she wins the Royal Rumble, no changes there, and she refuses to shake Ronda Rousey's hand, that was good. Not even the Baddest Woman on the Planet fazes her. She beats Nia Jax at Elimination Chamber to avoid her being added to Asuka's Mania match, and then at Fastlane, she challenges Charlotte to a match at Mania.
And here is where we start making big honkin' changes to the timeline, because at Mania 34, Asuka wins the Smackdown Women's Title. If you want to convince your casual, non-NXT-viewing audience that Asuka is as good as we who saw her in NXT think she is, you need to present her similarly, and a strong four months followed by a loss at Mania ain't gonna do that. So you have her win here, and let her soak in the joy of winning the title at Mania, instead of instantly taking away from that moment by making it about John Cena's fixation on the Undertaker. So Asuka is the champion now, but Charlotte thinks she has a plan for getting the title back. Charlotte thinks that Asuka is a flash in the pan, and that she can go hard out of the gate, but will tire out after a while. So, drawing influence from the 60-minute Broadways that her father would put on in the NWA, Charlotte challenges Asuka to a 30-minute Ironwoman match at Backlash. If nothing else, she claims that even if she doesn't win the title, she'll be the first person to make the Empress tap out. Hopefully that'll make the fans worry that her "never been pinned or submitted" streak will end here, but thankfully it doesn't. Asuka wins the match two falls to zero, but Charlotte comes really close to making Asuka tap, bridging the Figure-Four into the Figure-Eight just as time expires.
The next two pay-per-views show Asuka fighting against inferior competition who have a couple of tricks up their sleeves. At Money in the Bank, she fights Carmella. In this timeline, not only does she not have the Money in the Bank briefcase (she cashed it before Mania at some point), but she also already has James Ellsworth in her corner, and he tries to get involved in their title match at Money in the Bank, but gets kicked in the jaw so hard that the swelling finally gives him a chin, and from there, Asuka cruises to a victory. Then at Extreme Rules, Asuka fights both of the IIconics in a handicap match. Peyton and Billie get some offense going thanks to a couple of cheap shots, but Asuka makes Billie tap in the Lock.
Next comes Summerslam, and this part is tricky, because this is where the attempted Becky Lynch heel turn happened that accidentally turned her into a megastar. But we can solve that with basically the same match as in real life, just replace champion Carmella with champion Asuka. Doesn't that feel better? Like in real life, Charlotte wins the match by pinning Becky, and this causes Becky to fly off the handle and attack Charlotte afterwards. A rematch takes place at Hell in a Cell where the three women compete inside the Cell. These women throw everything at each other, and Becky wins the match, this time by pinning Charlotte. So we've managed to take the title off Asuka without pinning her, and let Becky and Charlotte have a run with the Smackdown Women's Title while their story is red-hot. Asuka can miss out on the next month or so of programming, no need to have her complicate a good story here.
The next time we see Asuka is at Evolution, where she winds up in the battle royale for a future title shot, and of course she wins the darn thing, last eliminating Nia Jax. The title match won't happen at Survivor Series though, as Becky Lynch is busy with Ronda Rousey, er I mean, busy getting her brains scrambled by Nia Jax, so she's once again in the 5-on-5 women's elimination match. Now at the real show, Raw pitched a shutout so that Baron Corbin could keep his GM job, but he lost it a month later anyway, and the whole storyline kinda sucked anyway, so let's kill it here. The women's elimination match opens the show, and Asuka once again has a really good showing here. Near the end, it comes down to Asuka and Naomi for Smackdown and Nia Jax for Raw. Corbin comes out to cheer on Nia, but he gets hit by a flying Rear View from Naomi, and Asuka wraps up Nia for the tap. Smackdown wins, this dumb storyline is put to bed immediately, so we don't have to think about it for the rest of the show, and just for good measure, Asuka kicks Baron in the head to put him out of his misery.
Asuka finally gets to cash in her title shot against Becky Lynch at TLC in a TLC match. And these two go absolutely mental on one another with ladder shots and dives. In the end, like in real life, Ronda Rousey comes out at the end, and tips over Becky's ladder as she's just fingertips away from the title. Yea, this might feel a bit like a cheap win for Asuka, but Ronda and Becky have been going back and forth on Twitter for months now, and this will be the opening salvo in their eventual Wrestlemania main event feud. So after Becky is taken out by Ronda, Asuka swoops in and takes the title. For those looking for a Rousey-less version of this match, may I interest you in their match the following month at the Royal Rumble, where Becky and Asuka fight one more time in a steel cage? This match opens the show, and they go fifteen minutes without ever once thinking about leaving the cage, because they're warriors. Asuka wins the match here, but Becky comes back at the end of the night and wins the Royal Rumble.
After this, Asuka gets a couple more title defenses under her belt. Naomi has been asking for a title shot for months after winning the Survivor Series match with Asuka, as well as having a strong showing in the Women's Royal Rumble. The match is competitive and won by Asuka. At Fastlane, it's Sonya Deville's turn. Mandy Rose got the match here in real life, but Sonya has more upside, so she'll get the match here, with Mandy at ringside. Sonya's MMA background actually matches up well against Asuka's submission and striking game, so Asuka has to pull some new stuff out of her bag, like maybe some aerial moves. Asuka scores another win here.
Wrestlemania 35 has to be Asuka vs. Charlotte, they're the two biggest women on the Smackdown side to go along with Becky and Ronda on the Raw side. In the build-up, Charlotte can talk about how much of a down year it's been for her. She's had so many title opportunities, and she’s only won one of them, she didn't even get to celebrate it, and she lost it a month later. And this crummy year started with her loss to Asuka, so a win over her here would be the start of her redemption. But don't feel too inspired by Charlotte's story, it's basically just "I'm a Flair, why am I not holding a title right now?" At the Mania match, Charlotte throws everything she can at Asuka, but it does nothing. Asuka kicks out of a Big Boot at 1. She takes back-to-back Natural Selections and kicks out at two. She gets put in the Figure-Four, but Asuka reverses the pressure. Charlotte's thinking "what do I have left?". But then, she has an evil little epiphany. She "accidentally" takes down the ref with a Big Boot, and she calls for another ref. And that ref is Charles Robinson. Oh no. Byron Saxton immediately knows that something's fucky. Charlotte puts Asuka in the Figure-Four, and as soon as Robinson gets in the ring, he calls for the bell. Asuka loses the match via screwjob, ending her undefeated streak at 1,278 days. WWE loves to do this kind of finish, but here it would have some real heft to it.
In real life, Charlotte ended Asuka's undefeated streak, but didn't do much with it. She lost the title to Carmella right afterwards, and has only had a handful of short reigns since then, none of them lasting longer than a pay-per-view or a Takeover cycle. At least Brock killing the Streak turned him into a monster again, and he went on the run of his life not long after. But in this story, ending Asuka's undefeated streak by screwing her over like this would turn Charlotte into the most detestable person on the face of the Earth. For her to steal Asuka's streak like this would just be the worst, and it would galvanize people against Charlotte. Also, by doing it this way, you can actually get two rubs from Asuka's streak, this one and whoever actually beats her cleanly down the road. Just have the face commentators say that Asuka never really lost, it would still work.
After the bell rings, Robinson and Charlotte am-scray and Asuka is bewildered. She goes to the first ref and pleads her case but to no avail, it wasn't his decision. Then she sees Robinson and Charlotte halfway up the ramp and she puts two and two together. She marches up the ramp, and Charlotte wants no part in Asuka's fury, so she literally throws Robinson in front of her, and Asuka feasts on Robinson's bones. She spends the next couple of minutes absolutely decimating Robinson until the other refs try to make the save, but no dice. Robinson is a dead man walking, and Asuka beats him down to the point where we don't see him again after this. Charlotte watches this from the top of the ramp, and thinks "I won the title, but what did it cost?" And Asuka basically responds "everything".
Next Smackdown, Charlotte comes out with a mile-wide smile. She gloats about ending the undefeated streak of Asuka, and berates the fans for siding against the greatest Women's Champion of all time. She also reveals that because Asuka laid hands on a ref, she's been suspended for thirty days. Ha ha ha. But that doesn't stop Asuka from trying to get another score of revenge. She hops the barricade, but gets held back by an army of refs, while Charlotte points and laughs. Suddenly though, Asuka breaks free, gets in the ring, and unleashes a flurry of punches on Charlotte. It looks like a scene from Fist of the North Star and Charlotte is already dead. Eventually, Asuka's dragged away by the police, and Charlotte is clutching her title, almost in the fetal position.
From there, Asuka's suspension is lengthened from 30 days to 90 days. During the Superstar Shake-Up, Bayley comes over from Raw, and stands up for Asuka. She says that screwing over Asuka like that was "a coward move", and if that's what Charlotte's snuck to, then she'll be easy pickings for her. Also during this time, it might be wise for Charlotte to get someone to help her from ringside. I mean, she is a Queen, maybe she needs a Princess? Maybe one from the Staten Island part of New York? I think Charlotte and Carmella would make a nice, little pairing while Charlotte is the champ.
Bayley gets three shots at the Smackdown Women's Title. First up, Money in the Bank, standard match, Carmella brains Bayley with the Title, and holds down Bayley's feet while Charlotte covers her. Charlotte scores the win. Next up, Stomping Grounds, Carmella’s banned from ringside. Bayley's doing well here, and may be on the verge of a win, but when Bayley is down in the corner and the ref goes to check on her, a pair of brass knuckles goes flying into the ring from the crowd. Charlotte catches it, but the person who threw it isn't seen on camera. Charlotte slips them on and KO punches Bayley. Finally at Extreme Rules, these two fight in a steel cage match. Once again, Bayley is looking good, until Carmella reaches through the hole of the cage and grabs Bayley's leg. She pulls her leg into the hole, trapping Bayley in the cage wall. Charlotte looks very satisfied, and starts to climb out of the cage. As she turns to wave goodbye to Bayley, Asuka's music hits. Her suspension would be up by now, and she full-sprints down to the cage, and climbs up it, meeting Charlotte at the top. Carmella manages to grab Asuka's leg and tries to yank her back down, but Asuka is able to climb back down and gives a righteous beating to Carmella. So now Charlotte’s on a time-limit; she needs to end the match before Asuka gets done munching on Carmella, so she drops back into the ring, and just starts booting Bayley in the head over and over again. Charlotte thinks she’s got the win here, so she pulls Bayley out of the cage wall, and covers but Bayley just barely kicks out. Carmella’s been killed off by Asuka by now, and she’s starting to climb the cage, so all Charlotte can do is bolt up the opposite wall to escape the cage. Charlotte gets over just as Asuka lands in the ring, and survives the cage match, but she knows what’s coming next, and she has to stop it from happening.
On the next Smackdown, it’s announced for Summerslam, Asuka vs. Charlotte for the Smackdown Women’s Title. Charlotte and Carmella storm into Trips and Steph’s office, and demand to know why Asuka is being rewarded with a title shot. “The last memory we had of Asuka before last Sunday was of her breaking her suspension to earn an even longer suspension. She shouldn’t be getting title shots, she should be in jail.” Steph calms her down and says that for starters, Asuka’s never got her rematch from Wrestlemania. But she also says that in the contract for the match, Asuka has to play nice in the build to Summerslam. If she attacks either Charlotte or Carmella in the build-up, the match is off. But if they attack Asuka, then she’s free to defend herself. Charlotte and Carmella glance at each other and they know what they have to do: piss off Asuka. They spend the next four weeks doing whatever they can to provoke a reaction. They trash Asuka’s locker room, they crash her rental car, they beat down Bayley, who’s become something like Asuka’s friendly rival by this point. At one point, Charlotte even makes some racist comments toward Asuka. Now normally I don’t like racism to be used as a heel tactic (it feels lazy), but if the goal is to provoke a reaction, it might be just the ticket. Asuka nearly bites there, but restrains herself and walks away. Go home show to Summerslam, Charlotte and Asuka sign the contract for Summerslam, and Charlotte spends the whole time talking about how she’s going to retain the title, and hold it for the next decade, and how there’s nothing Asuka can do to stop it. Asuka simply says “For now, I can’t, but she can”, and Bayley slides in behind Charlotte and smashes her in the head. Bayley tries to fight them 2-on-1, but can only do so much. After a bit of a beatdown, Charlotte’s holding Bayley up, telling Carmella to hit Bayley with a Superkick. But as she goes for it, Asuka dives in front of the kick and takes the Superkick for Bayley. Carmella has now officially laid hands, er feet, on Asuka, meaning she’s free to defend herself, and she does so with extreme prejudice. Asuka annihilates Carmella, and when Charlotte goes to try to save her partner, she can’t, because doing so will require attacking Asuka, and that would mean they’d have to fight. So Charlotte throws up her hands and walks away, leaving Carmella to fruitlessly tap out in the Asuka Lock.
At Summerslam, Carmella’s out of the picture, and it’s just Charlotte and Asuka, and Charlotte is being humbled, she gets blown up at every opportunity by Asuka, who’s just having fun out there. After one particularly rough sequence, Charlotte’s just like “nope, I’m done here”, and peaces out, running fast as her beaten up legs will carry her. She loses by countout, but retains. Charlotte spends the next several weeks just trying to hide from Asuka basically, because she knows Asuka wants blood. For Clash of Champions, it’ll be these two again, this time Falls Count Anywhere so that Charlotte can’t try to leg it. Charlotte goes to Steph and Triple H again, but this time, instead of confidently trying to disparage Asuka, she’s nervous, paranoid, and panicky. She doesn’t want this kind of match, and legitimately begs for the stipulation to be removed. Steph tells her to get a hold of herself, and says that the match will go on as announced, and that Charlotte is the champion, hell Charlotte is the Queen, and she needs to remember that and start conducting herself as such. So Charlotte sucks it up, and straightens her posture, thanks Steph and leaves. Although, PG swearing can be heard on the other side of the door as Charlotte storms off in frustration. Right before the match happens, Asuka knows that Carmella will be assisting Charlotte in this match, so Asuka stalks Carmella backstage, and once she’s alone, Asuka pounces on her, locking her in the Asuka Lock, and once she’s worn out, she throws her in a closet, and props the door shut. Charlotte comes out first, wondering where in the world Carmella is, but an evil smile from Asuka during her entrance gives her all the information she needs. The two get to brawling and the action spills backstage pretty quickly. Charlotte knows her best bet is to find Carmella, so they can team up on Asuka. So she spends more time opening every door looking for Mella, then actually engaging with Asuka. After about ten minutes, Charlotte eventually finds the locker room and frees Carmella, but by this point, they’re both on spaghetti legs. Asuka dispatches Carmella one more time, puts Charlotte in the Lock, and Charlotte taps out. Asuka is back on top.
Hell in a Cell is next, but by this point, Charlotte is just tired. She’s been put through the Asuka meat grinder a bunch by this point, and Charlotte is about done with her. But Carmella motivates her to pick her chin back up and to keep being the Queen of WWE. And this is just enough to get Charlotte going again. Charlotte wins a #1 contender’s match, she wins a couple of big matches on Smackdown, and by the time the PPV rolls around, it’s actually Charlotte’s idea to put the match in the Cell. Asuka happily agrees, these two have met in the Cell before, two years ago alongside Becky Lynch, and now they’ll face off one more time. This is probably Asuka and Charlotte’s most competitive match, Charlotte looks particularly strong here, and pushes Asuka to her absolute limit, but after a grueling 25-minute match, Asuka just defeats Charlotte and walks away with the belt. Carmella consoles a frustrated Charlotte in the post-match, and they go on to win the Women’s Tag Titles not long after this.
Next is Survivor Series, and the match is once again a triple threat between the three women’s champions, Asuka as Smackdown Champ vs. Becky Lynch as Raw Champ vs. Shayna Baszler as NXT Champ. This match will rule, these three women are maybe the best in the business at what they do (Becky as a beloved face, Shayna as a total asshole, and Asuka as being Asuka). The three women trade the advantage back and forth, but in the end, Asuka has the Asuka Lock on Shayna, but Becky makes the save. Becky and Asuka go for a bit before Asuka puts the Lock on Becky, Becky is moments from tapping when Shayna knees Asuka in the head, locks on the Kirifuda Clutch, and taps out Becky. Shayna wins the match, and afterward, Asuka is fuming. On the next Raw, Asuka comes out, screaming in Japanese at Becky, but Becky calms her down by talking back to her in Japanese, and Asuka simply replies “you don’t deserve that title”, and storms off. Couple weeks later, Asuka wins a multi-brand battle royale for a shot at the Raw Women’s Title, much like the one that happened in real-life before Summerslam 2020. In this match, we get the final two of Asuka and Shayna Baszler, and after some intense back-and-forth, Asuka takes out Shayna. Asuka faces off with Becky Lynch at TLC, and during this match, Becky Lynch takes Asuka’s left arm to town. She plays a smart, submission-based game with Asuka, where she never relents on the arm, constantly softening it up for the Dis-Arm-Her. Near the end of the match, Asuka gets the Lock on, but her arm is having trouble keeping Becky in place, so it’s basically just a rear choke instead of the Asuka Lock, and Becky manages to free herself, slam Asuka’s face to the mat, and lock on the Dis-Arm-Her. Asuka stays in the hold for a long time, but finally after a full minute in the hold, Asuka… taps. After 1,530 days, more than four years, Asuka has cleanly tasted defeat at the hands of The Man, Becky Lynch. Becky is stunned, she was sure she could win, but even still, seeing Asuka tap is like seeing God bleed. Becky celebrates her win while keeping a wary eye on Asuka to make sure she doesn’t snap. Eventually, Asuka gets up and gets face-to-face with Becky and tells her, “you were ready for Asuka”. Asuka raises Becky’s hand and pays her respect before bowing and leaving the ring to let Becky celebrate for real. The torch has officially been passed.
From here on, we see a much more reserved and, dare I say, friendly Asuka. She could still turn you into a jigsaw puzzle, but now she can kind of relax a bit. For the Royal Rumble, Bayley earns a shot at the title, and Asuka is happy to give her friend a chance, they start getting real buddy-buddy. In the build, Asuka and Bayley actually earn a crack at Charlotte and Carmella’s Women’s Tag Titles. They lose that match, with Charlotte pinning Bayley. Charlotte runs off, celebrating like she just won the everything, finally happy in the knowledge that she technically beat Asuka. But the loss doesn’t get to Asuka like it would in days past. Asuka and Bayley fight at the Rumble, and it’s a fun back-and-forth match where Bayley ends up looking pretty good, but Asuka just gets the win. At Elimination Chamber, she faces a new target, Alexa Bliss. In this story, she still has Nikki Cross in her corner, but they’re both heel, with Nikki working as Alexa’s deranged enforcer. Alexa is absolutely ruthless in this match, absolutely taking it to Asuka, with Nikki getting in little pot-shots wherever she can. Alexa straight-up dominates a lot of the match, but Asuka snags a lucky Asuka Lock and forces Alexa to tap. Asuka survives, but something seems off.
Finally, we’re on the Road to Wrestlemania, and the Royal Rumble winner, Shayna Baszler has a decision to make. Does she get a rematch with Rhea Ripley, who just took her NXT Women’s Title? Does she face Becky Lynch, who Baszler made tap at Survivor Series? Or does she go for Asuka, who seems to be ripe for the picking? It’s announced on the first Raw after Elimination Chamber that Shayna will make her decision. All three women’s champions meet in the ring and await Shayna’s decision. When Shayna gets in the ring, she first addresses Rhea. She says that that title isn’t worth her time anymore, she wants that Wrestlemania payday, so she tells Rhea to take a hike, which she does. This leaves just Becky and Asuka, when suddenly Ronda Rousey sneaks in, and bashes Becky, while Shayna goes for Asuka. After a quick beatdown, Rousey has Becky in her Armbar, while Shayna has the Kirifuda Clutch on Asuka, and the two Mania matches take shape. Later, Shayna reveals that she picked Asuka for two reasons. One: Becky and Ronda have some unfinished business, so Shayna basically let Ronda take Becky. And two: Asuka has gone soft, “she’s no empress, she’s a clown who tries and fails to be a badass”. And she confidently boasts that there’s nothing Asuka can do that she isn’t ready for. On the first night of Wrestlemania 36, Ronda defeats Becky to reclaim the Raw Women’s Title with the help of the other Horsewomen. Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir win a Four-Way Tag Match against the champs Charlotte and Carmella, Bayley and Sasha, and the IIconics, and then on Night Two, it’s Shayna vs. Asuka, and Asuka gets bodied. Shayna just comes out of the gates swinging, and never relents, never gives Asuka a moment of reprieve, and just batters her, winning convincingly with the Kirifuda Clutch. From there, all four MMA Horsewomen hold the main roster gold, and Asuka may need a couple of months to regroup and come back stronger, but that I think is enough for now. I’m nearly at the character limit, so thanks guys and I’ll see y’all later.

2020.08.25 21:44 AEWPunk525 Rebooking WWE throughout the 2010's. Part 34

Chapter 34
Survival of the Fittest
Raw starts up the next night and we see CM Punk come out, he grabs a mic, and he says that after a hard fought battle, he is glad to still be WWE Champion, but Punk says that he did not do it fairly. Punk says that he knows the ref saw Mark Henry kick out at two, and he demands to know why the ref counted three anyway. Punk demands to know why that match did not go on longer. Paul Heyman then comes out, he looks at Punk and he says that yes, Mark Henry got screwed, it was simpily collateral damage. Punk asks Paul Heyman what he is talking about. Paul says that for the last eight years, one man has carried WWE on his back, and become a multi time World Champion, and main evented multiple Wrestlemanias. Paul Heyman says that man is John Cena. Punk looks very confused. Paul says that sure Cena has been on a losing streak as of recently, but with his new attitude, Paul sees a hunger in John Cena that he has never seen. Paul says that combined with his talent, that hunger could lead John Cena and Raw to perhaps be the pinnacle in all of professional wrestling. Paul tells Punk that he has been a legendary WWE Champion, but he cannot do what John Cena can do. Punk reminds Heyman that recently, he has beaten Cena not once, but twice. Paul then looks at Punk and he tells him that Batista once beat him twice in succession as well, but look at the third time that they met up. John Cena ended the career of Batista, and became WWE Champion. Paul says that luckily for Punk, John Cena wanted to face him over Mark Henry, that is why Mark got screwed. Paul tells Punk that if Cena wanted to face Mark Henry, then right now standing in this ring as WWE Champion, would be Mark Henry. Paul says that therefore at the next Pay Per View, Survivor Series, CM Punk will once again face off against John Cena with the WWE Championship on the line. Paul then tells Punk not to end up like Batista. Paul starts to get out of the ring, and then we hear the music of Mark Henry. Henry comes to the ring, and he looks at Heyman. Henry says that last night, he took everything CM Punk had, and he kept on kicking out, he kept on coming, only to get screwed out of the title. Mark Henry says that he demands a rematch with CM Punk for the WWE Championship. Paul then tells him that his hands are tied, he already made the match of John Cena vs CM Punk at Survivor Series. Mark Henry tells Paul that he has to make it right, he doesn’t care about Surivivor Series or John Cena, he wants a title shot against CM Punk. Paul tells him that he cannot do that, the match is already made. Mark Henry shakes his head, and he tells Paul that he is going to regret doing that to him then. Mark Henry gets out of the ring, and he storms to the back. After this we see Mark Henry erupting backstage, he is destroying all of the stage hands and everyone, he is going on a complete rampage. After this we see Daniel Bryan come out, he is taped up, and he has a black eye. Daniel comes to the ring, and he says that last night was insane. Daniel says that Ryback really did put up a hardcore fight, and he almost became IC Champion. But Daniel says that he did not give up, on anything, and he was able to hit the Flying Knee and pin Ryback. Daniel says that he looks forward to his next challenge. Ryback comes out again. Ryback grabs a mic and he tells Daniel to look at himself, and then look at Ryback. Ryback asks Daniel who it looks like won last night. Daniel tells Ryback that it probably looks like he won last night, but who is holding the Championship. Ryback tells Daniel that he didn’t need to add on that last part, but he is right, it does look like Ryback was the winner of the match. Ryback says that he wasn’t though. Ryback tells Daniel that he got one lucky strike in on him, and he won the match. Ryback asks Daniel if he is really looking forward to his next challenge? Daniel says that of course he is. Ryback then offers a proposition to Daniel. Ryback says that he doesn’t want to leave a match to a lucky strike, like the last time. Ryback challenges Daniel to a Last Man Standing match at Survivor Series. Daniel looks around at the crowd before accepting the match. Ryback tells Daniel, Good luck surviving, and then walks away. Up next we see Cody Rhodes come out to the ring, he says that he had a great showing last night, and he beat a former World Heavyweight Champion in the middle of this ring. Cody says that he already feels like he has sharpened himself up a little bit. Cody says that he isn’t done yet. Cody says that he wants to keep his momentum going. Cody issues another challenge to whomever would like to face him next. Yet again, nobody comes out. Cody tells everyone that is fine, although he expects a new challenger before Survivor Series. Cody then leaves the ring. After this we see Mark Henry in the back again, he is continuing to just destroy everything. Mark is also hurting anybody he sees backstage, he is causing this situation to be an absolute disaster. After this we see Serena come out with her newly won Women’s Championship, she says that this has been a long time coming for her. Serena says that for two and a half long years, she has fought for this moment, and she could not have won the title in a better way, from Aksana, who was taking the Women’s division backwards. Serena says that it means a great deal to her, and she thanks the fans for helping in this moment. Aksana comes out, she is clearly enraged, she cannot believe that she lost the title. Aksana starts yelling at Serena, she says that Serena does not deserve the championship, and next week, live on Raw, Aksana says that she is invoking her rematch clause. Serena tells her that the sooner they get this thing out of the way, the better. Serena then thanks Aksana and she tells her that she will see her next week. Raw then goes off the air.
Smackdown is up next and the first thing we see is the Usos come out, they talk about how epic the Tag Team match was at Hell in a Cell. Jey says that bodies were flying all over the place, and there was carnage everywhere. Jimmy then says that it ended with him hitting a huge Splash on Carlito for the win. Jimmy then tells everyone, that is how it is done. The Prime Time Players then come out, and they shake the Usos hands. Titus O’Neil says that it was a truly great showing at Hell in a Cell, and the Usos did win, but, like Jimmy said, he pinned Carlito. Titus says that he wasn’t pinned, and then Darren says that he wasn’t pinned either, and that neither of the Prime Time Players were pinned. Darren then says that he has an offer for the Usos. Darren says that he would love for the Prime Time Players to face the Usos for the Tag Team Championships, Jey says that he likes the sound of this idea. Then we hear the music of the Colons, they come to the ring. Carlito says that he hates the sound of this idea, because it does not involve the Colons, who are the best team in WWE. Carlito then offers his own challenge, he says that he wants a three on two Traditional Survivor Series match for the Tag Team Championships at Survivor Series. Jimmy says that he likes the sound of this idea, but he has a solution of his own, that he thinks everyone will like. Jimmy says that the Usos and the Prime Time Players have a healthy respect for each other, and they have good liking for each other. Jimmy then says that neither team likes or respects the Colons. Jimmy says that he wants an even fight, so he sees that there are three Colons, and between the Prime Time Players and the Usos, there are four men. Jimmys idea is for the Colons to find just one more man, whoever that is, and then at Survivor Series, they have a four on four traditional Survivor Series match. And in that match, if the Colons win, they will get a three on two shot at the Usos for the Tag Team Championships, but if the Prime Time Usos win, then the Prime Time Players will get their well deserved two on two shot at the Tag Team Championships. Jey then says that he for one votes for this idea, because he loves it. Titus O’Neil says that he is down for this, and then Darren Young soon agrees to this idea. Carlito and the Colons all talk to each other, before Carlito turns and tells all four men that they are on. After this we see Abyss come out, he is smiling and laughing, and he even pulls his stitches out, so that he can bleed out some more, while he speaks. Abyss says that he loved his rivalry with Kane. Abyss says that Kane was a worthy opponent for him, but now Kane has been destroyed, and he was destroyed in his own home of Hell in a Cell, by none other than the Monster Abyss himself. Abyss begins to laugh, and he says that nobody can stop him, and he is going to hold the US title for as long as he pleases. Abyss laughs, as the blood runs down his face, he then holds up the US Championship. Abyss leaves after this. Next up we have Cesaro come out, he talks about his victory over the Big Show, and he talks about how he was able to easily hit the Neutralizer on the five hundred pound giant. Cesaro says that he tried to warn the Big Show, but it did not work, and Big Show ended up on the ground, looking up at the lights at Hell in a Cell. Cesaro then says that he will keep all of this going until he gets his hands on Championship gold. Cesaro then leaves the ring. Next up we see Alex Riley in a random match, he is taking on the returning Chris Masters. Masters puts up a great fight and he gets the Master Lock locked in, but Alex falls forward and Masters hits his face on the Turnbuckle. Alex takes advantage and he hits his DDT on Chris Masters for the win. Finally we have Tyler Reks come out, he grabs a mic, he says that he did what he said he was going to do, he won the Triple Threat match at Hell in a Cell, but now he has to move on. Tyler says that he now has to face off against Triple H in a one on one match at Survivor Series. Tyler Reks says that unlike Triple H would tell anyone, he is looking forward to this match. Tyler says that it will be an honor just to step in the ring with the Game, let alone beat him in the ring. Tyler says that is exactly what is going to happen, he tells Triple H that he can hit him with two, three, or four Pedigrees if he wants to. Tyler says that he will kick out, and he will destroy Triple H with his Burning Hammer. Tyle Reks says that afterwards he will be moving on. Tyler Reks then leaves the ring, and Smackdown goes off the air.
Raw then starts up next and immediately we start out by seeing Mark Henry out in the Parking lot continuing his rampage from last week, he is flipping cars and everything. Mark Henry is not going to stop until he gets exactly what he wants. After the rampage we then see Cody Rhodes come out again, and once again, he says that he is looking for a challenge. Cody says that anyone will do, and that it does not matter who it is. Cody tells anyone that if they want to build any sort of stock, now may just be the time. Cody calls this his Survivor Series open challenge, he says that he is willing to face anyone, no matter how many wins or losses they have. Then we see Heath Slater come out. Slater gets in the ring. Cody says that he likes this. Cody says that Slater is just a man who would like to prove himself, he says that Slater has never won a Championship in WWE, but Cody says that he bets that Slater would like to in the future. Heath takes the mic, and he says that Cody is right. Slater says that he would love to win a Championship in the future. Heath says that he has a lot to prove. Heath says that he always felt like he was the weak link of the Nexus, and since the split, that feeling has done nothing but grow. Heath thanks Cody for the open challenge, and Heath then says that he gladly accepts. Cody and Heath then shake hands with each other. Heath then leaves the ring, and Cody tells the crowd that there they have it. Cody then leaves as well. Next up we see Ryback in a match with JTG. Ryback beats JTG senseless, meanwhile the whole time, he tries to count to ten as JTG is down, Ryback keeps getting to eight or nine before JTG gets up. Ryback then nails JTG with a Clothesline, and then counts all the way to ten. Ryback shrugs his shoulders and then hits Shell Shocked on JTG for the win. Next up we see John Cena get in the ring with Paul Heyman. Heyman introduces Cena as the next WWE Champion, and then he gives the mic to Cena. John says that he doesn’t care about what happened at Hell in a Cell, he does not care about Mark Henry’s temper tantrum, and he doesn't care that CM Punk was upset about the outcome of the match. Cena says that what he does care about is Survivor Series. Cena tells Paul that he is grateful for the spot at Survivor Series, but then he looks at the camera, and he tells Punk not to fool himself. Cena says that the Survivor Series spot was not worthy of anyone else other than John Cena. Cena then says that the same is true for the WWE Championship, nobody else is worthy of it other than John Cena. Cena tells Punk that he can put up as much of a fight as he wants, he can make it another Summerslam of King of the Ring classic if he wants, but there is no point. Cena says that at Survivor Series, Punk might as well just lay down in the middle of the ring, and let himself be pinned by John Cena. Cena tries to go on, but is interrupted by the Titantron. We see Mark Henry on the Titantron, and he is destroying absolutely everything, he makes it into Paul's office. Mark then destroys most of Paul's personal things. Mark grabs a picture of Paul's family, and he gets ready to smash it. Paul then cries out for Mark Henry to stop. Mark looks like he is going to do it, but Paul screams that he will make it right. Mark then listens. Paul tells him that next week he will be in a match. Paul tells Mark if he loses next week, then the Survivor Series match will remain John Cena vs CM Punk for the WWE Championship, but if Mark Henry wins, then he will be added to the match, making it a Triple Threat match for the WWE Championship. Mark Henry puts down the photo, and we see that John Cena is upset. Paul tells Cena that he is sorry and that he had no choice, he had to do it. Cena then storms off away from the ring. Finally we have our main event for the Women’s Championship, it is between Serena and Aksana. Aksana goes right after Serena but soon Serena is able to gain the upper hand, and start taking it to Aksana, she batters Aksana and puts her in her place. Aksana does fight back at some points, but she is no match for Serena, who ends up pinning her in the middle of the ring. After the match is over Aksana then turns into a sore loser, and she grabs her perfume, and sprays it in the face of Serena. Aksana then goes on the attack on Serena. Gail Kim then comes to the rescue and she drives off Aksana. Raw then goes off the air.
Smackdown is up next and we see Triple H start out the show, he grabs a mic, he tells everyone that what Tyler Reks did at Hell in a Cell was impressive. Triple H says that Tyler has had an impressive reign so far, but the one thing that he has failed to do is successfully pin the most established challenger that he has yet faced. Triple H says that is probably by design, because Triple H says that he cannot be pinned by Tyler Reks. Triple H then says that Tyler is in way over his head, thinking that he can take so many Pedigrees. Triple H says that all Tyler will take is one, and then after that, Triple H says that he will be a fourteen time World Champion. Triple H says that he looks forward to facing Tyler Reks at Survivor Series, but he tells Tyler that he better hold that Championship tight, because he will not have it for that much longer. Triple H drops the mic and he walks away. Next up we have a number one contenders match to see who will face off against Abyss at Survivor Series. This is a match between Sheamus and Big Show. This match starts off like normal and we see both men go back and forth. Big Show then looks for a Chokeslam, but Sheamus punches Show in the face, and then hits a Brogue Kick. Sheamus then pins Big Show for the win. Sheamus celebrates in the ring, until Abyss makes his way out to the ring, that is when it hits Sheamus as to what he has just won. Abyss just looks at Sheamus and he laughs at him. Up next we finally see Carlito come out, and he says that he has a huge announcement. Carlito says that after a whole week of trying to pick a partner for the Colons, Primo, Epico, and himself have all come to a decision. Carlito says that years ago, before Primo and Epico, he was once in a tag team, and he spent a good while with his partner, and they knew each other well, and they worked well together. Carlito says that he went on to become a four time Tag Team Champion, while his partner went on to become a United States Champion. Carlito then tells everyone that it is time for a bit of a reunion. Carlito then welcomes Chris Masters. Masters comes out and tells Carlito that it is nice to see him again, and it is even nicer to team with him again. Masters says that he and Carlito were good in the day, now that they have come so far, they will be unstoppable, which is bad news for the Prime Time Players and the Usos. Masters says that at Survivor Series, don’t be surprised if it is a clean sweep. Masters drops the mic and the show goes off the air.
Raw is up next and it starts out with Gail Kim coming out. Gail says that everything that AJ and Serena have been saying over the past few months have been reinating with her. Gail says that she wants this division to move forward, she says that she is not a Diva, she is a superstar, that is why she helped out and defended Serena last week. Aksans then comes out, and she tries to attack Gail, the two get into a brawl, and Aksana uses her perfume to attack Gail with. Serena then comes out, and she fights off Aksana. Aksana is on the way out when Serena grabs a mic, she tells Aksana that it is getting too chaotic. Serens says that she wants to cut a deal with Aksana. Serena says that at Survivor Series it should be a five on five traditional Survivor Series match. Serena says that she already has Gail Kim, and she will search for three other women. Serena tells Aksana to search for four other women herself, so that they can make this thing official. Next up we see CM Punk in the back, he is asked about John Cena’s comments from last week. Punk says that there is absolutely no way, he would ever lay down for John Cena, he says that it just wouldn’t happen. In fact at Survivor Series, he looks to pin John Cena and remain WWE Champion. Punk is then asked about the Mark Henry situation. Punk says that he is rooting for Mark Henry, he really is, because him and Mark do have some unfinished business, and not only that, but it is funny to see a wrench thrown in Cena’s and Heyman’s plans. Punk says that if it is a Triple Threat, the only thing that will suck is that if he is out of the ring, and either Cena gets his ass kicked like he always does, or he cheats to win over Mark Henry, then Punk will no longer be WWE Champion. Punk says that other than that, he loves the idea of Henry being involved, Punk says that he deserves it. Punk then walks away. Up next we see Daniel Bryan in a match against JTG. This match is a bit more back and forth, but Daniel controls the match well. Daniel tries to do what Ryback did where he counts to ten. JTG keeps getting up though. Daniel eventuall gets frustrated, and he locks in the Lebell lock. JTG taps, but Daniel forces him to pass out. Daniel then counts to ten after the match is over. Finally we have our main event. Mark Henry comes out, and he finds out that he is in a three on one guantlet match. Dolph Ziggler comes out first. An angered Mark Henry goes right after Ziggler and he throttles him. Henry hits a quick World’s Strongest Slam on Ziggler and he pins him. We see Heyman watching from the back, he seems nervous. Next up we see Christian come out. Christian is able to put up a fight against Mark Henry, but Mark Henry is still able to overpower Christian and hit a World’s Strongest Slam. Mark then pins Christian. We see John Cena in the back next, he is nervous. Finally we see Alberto Del Rio come out to the ring. Alberto gets in a lot of offense, and he is even able to get Mark down and lock in the Cross ArmBreaker. Mark is able to power out, and then attack Del Rio. Mark gives Del Rio a World’s Strongest Slam and pins him for the win. Mark Henry is now added to the WWE Championship match at Survivor Series. We then see CM Punk in the back, he is shaking his head, and looking focused. Raw then goes off the air.
Smackdown is up next and we see Sheamus come out, he says that last week he earned a shot at Abyss at Survivor Series. Sheamus says that last week, he was a little worried, but then, he thought about it. Sheamus says that he is an irishman and all irishmen, love nothing more than to fight. Sheamus says that at Survivor Series, he will be in a normal match against Abyss, nothing special. All that means to Sheamus is that he will be in a huge fight, and what does he get if he wins the fight, well, he gets the United States title. Sheamus says that it is a win win for him, and he looks forward to Survivor Series. Sheamus then says that he will take the biggest beating of his life, but it will all be in good fun. Sheamus then drops his mic and he leaves the ring. Next up we have a one on one match between Jimmy Uso and Carlito. This match goes back and forth, until Primo distracts the ref, and Chris Masters comes in and hits the Master Lock Slam on Jimmy Uso. Carlito then pins Jimmy for the win. After this we see Cesaro in the back, he is asked about his time in WWE. Cesaro says that it has been great, he has not yet been pinned, and he beat a former World Champion at Hell in a Cell with ease. Cesaro says that he just looks forward to what is next, he says that perhaps he will get a US title shot. Cesaro then makes the remark that he is far more deserving than Sheamus is. Cesaro then walks away. After this we have our main event which is a match between Triple H and Shad Gaspard. Shad gives Triple H all he can, and he remains in control for a while, but Triple H uses his experience to take control of the match and give Shad a huge Spinebuster, followed by a Pedigree. Triple H wins this match, and him and Tyler Reks have a staredown after the match. Smackdown then goes off the air.
Raw is up next and we see Aksana in the back, she says that she has accepted the challenge of Serena, and she is happy to face her team at Survivor Series. Aksana says that she has already started building her team too, and as it turns out, there are some Women who loved the way she was taking the division. Aksana says that those two women that she is speaking of have already joined her team. Aksana then tells them to come on over, and as it turns out, they are Melina and Kelly Kelly. Aksana then tells Serena that she hopes that she has good luck finding some partners for Survivor Series. After this we see Ryback in another match, this time he is facing off against Dolph Ziggler, who is still hurt from last week. Ryback hits Ziggler with one Clothesline, counts to ten, shrugs his shoulders and then nails Ziggler with a Shell Shocked. Ryback then wins this match as well. After this we then see Serena in the back, she laughs at Aksanas choices and she says that she has a good pick of her own for this week, and that pick is Beth Phoenix. Serena tells Aksana not to get too upset when the whole thing is a squash match. After this we see Heath Slater in a match. He is facing off against Kofi Kingston. Heath does a good job throughout the entire match, but unfortunately for him he takes a misstep and Kofi hits a Trouble in Paradise, and pins Slater for the win. After the match Slater is very upset. Cody comes down to the ring, and he tells Heath that he did a very good job in that match, and not to be down about it. Heath leaves the ring looking upset. Finally we have John Cena come out and he says that for once he is not out there to address the Rock or CM Punk, he wants to take this time to address Mark Henry. Cena says that Mark Henry is nothing but a whiny little bitch who cries when he doesn’t get his way. Cena calls Henry and old man, and tells him that this is not the nineties anymore. Cena says that Henry’s time has passed, and he should have just stayed out of the buisness of John Cena. Mark Henry then comes out, and he looks at Cena and he tells Cena that he doesn’t get it. Henry says that he has waited for this moment for years, where he gains the WWE Championship for the first time. Henry tells John that he has had to wait so long for this moment, because John has always hogged the spotlight, while Henry has busted his ass. Henry says that he finally got a good opportunity at King of the Ring, and he won the tournament, then finally, he got his shot, only to be screwed by none other than John Cena. Mark says that at Survivor Series, he gets another shot at the WWE Championship, and this time he gets to get his hands on both John Cena and the WWE Champion, CM Punk. Mark says that at Survivor Series, he will gain the WWE Championship, and in the process of doing so, he will give John Cena a receipt for hogging the spotlight for all those years. Henry then leaves the ring and Raw goes off the air.
Smackdown is up next and we start out by seeing a match that pits Jey Uso against Chris Masters. Jey Uso looks good, but he is not primarely a singles wrestler. Masters is able to capatilize on this, and he gains the upper hand and he is able to defeat Jey Uso with the Master Lock. After this we see Tyler Reks in a match against Shad Gaspard.

Abyss tells Sheamus that of course it will be in good fun, because a fight and some brutality is always fun to Abyss. Abyss tells Sheamus to just ask Kane for example. Abyss then says at Survivor Series, Sheamus can put up as good of a fight as he wants to, but ironically, Sheamus will likely not survive Survivor Series. Abyss then drops the mic and he walks away. Smackdown then goes off the air.
The go home Raw is up next. We start out by seeing Serena in the back, she says that finally she has picked the final two women to join her team. Serena says that without further ado, she welcomes Mickie James and Layla to her team. Serena says that Aksana better have some really good picks in mind for tonight, because it seems like it will be completely one sided at Survivor Series. Up next we have Daniel Bryan in a match with Dolph Ziggler. Daniel knows what to do this time, and after a bit of a fight, he gets the Lebell Lock in on Ziggler and he forces him to pass out. Daniel wins and he starts to count to ten, but before he can finish, he is attacked by Ryback, who lays him out, before walking away. After this we see Heath Slater in a match with Alberto Del Rio.

After this we see Aksana in the back, she announces that her two final members also liked where she was taking the division. Aksana then introduces Maryse and Alicia Fox to her team. Aksana tells Serena that she is right, it will be a one sided match, and at the end of the night, Serena will be the one who is most disappointed by the match. Finally we see CM Punk come to the ring and he grabs a mic, he says that this Sunday will be the most difficult task of his title reign, but he looks forward to it. Punk says that the winner of this match will likely be the man to face the Rock at the Royal Rumble. Punk says that he also already knows that he has Mark Henry’s number, and as for John Cena. Punk says that if the past has proven anything, it is that John Cena is very beatable to CM Punk. John Cena then comes out and he grabs a mic. Cena says that he is sick and tired of Punk talking down to him. Cena says that he is the greatest to ever step in the ring. Cena says that this Sunday, he is going to begin to right his wrongs by beating CM Punk for the WWE Championship. CM Punk tells Cena to get over himself, he tells Cena that he should know by now, that Punk is the Best in the World. Mark Henry then comes out, and grabs a mic. Henry tells both men to just slow down for a second. Mark tells them that he is the third man in the match, and not to take him lightly. Cena tells Mark that he is nothing but a loser who has been aroubnd since the Attitude Era and never won a World title. Cena tells Henry that he can start talking when he is actually good. Mark then shoves Cena who starts hitting Mark Henry, these two start to fight, and Cena throws an elbow that hits CM Punk in the face. Punk then gets involved and all three men start fighting. Eventually Mark Henry delivers a World’s Strongest Slam to both Punk and Cena, and Mark Henry stands tall to close the show.
The go home Smackdown is next and we see Triple H start it out, he says that he admits he is in for a fight this Sunday. Triple H says that still nothing will change, all he needs to do is hit one Pedigree, and that is it. Tyler Reks is no longer Champion. Tyler Reks then comes out, and he tells Triple H that he keeps getting ahead of himself. Tyler reminds Triple H that he has never once stepped in a ring with him. Tyler then tells Triple H that this Sunday will be a life changing experience. Tyler says that he gets to step in the ring with the great Triple H and he gets to beat the great Triple H. Triple H is then seen laughing. Tyler Reks then walks to the back. Up next we see Primo and Epico going two on two with the Prime Time Players. This match is a good one, and the Usos are able to thwart Masters and Carlitos attempts to ruin the match. In the end the Prime Time Players are able to win this match, and afterwards it ends up in an all out brawl where the Usos and the Prime Time Players stand tall. Finally after this we have Sheamus in a match with Evan Bourne. Bourne looks good in this match, but in the end, he tries to jump on Sheamus only to be hit with a Brogue Kick. Sheamus wins the match. Abyss comes out after and he and Sheamus get into a fight where Abyss hits a Black Hole Slam on Sheamus. Abyss stands tall to end the night. Smackdown then goes off the air.

The three then hit a Triple Power Bomb on Punk through the announce table. Cena shakes hands with all three men, and he looks down at Punk as Survivor Series comes to an end.)

Chapter 26
Wrestlemania 28
Raw is on the night after Elimination Chamber, and we hear some unfamiliar music, we hear a song called the Cult of Personality, and we see CM Punk come out with the WWE Championship, he grabs a mic and he says that months ago at Money in the Bank he put Sting to sleep and he walked out with the WWE Championship. Punk says he did this, because he nor some of the other talent was getting the respect that they deserved. Punk says that walking out with the Championship was a message not only from him, but the talent that was being held down for the likes of Triple H, Sting, and Kevin Nash. Punk then says that he is the Voice of the Voiceless. And then he looks around at the crowd and he asks them all if they are wondering why he is back in WWE, Punk says two reasons, the first one is simple, Punk tells the audience that WWE has started to do better with their talent, they have started to actually use their talent, Punk says that it is a far cry from when he left, it is a far cry from Vince McMahon, Punk then says that quite frankly if Vince was still in charge, then he likely would just quit. Punk says that the fact that Rock is still in the main event of Wrestlemania instead of him still makes him sick of course, but Punk says that this one year, he will let that slide, because he feels like all the talent that needs a push is getting a push. Punk says to the audience to look at people like Cody Rhodes, Tyler Reks, Wade Barrett. Punk says that if Vince were in charge those men would have been released, because Vince was out of touch. Punk says that a few more guys to get cut would have likely been super talented guys like Justin Gabriel, John Morrison, and Drew McIntyre. Punk pauses for a minute and he smiles, he says that brings him to his second reason, the Royal Rumble winner himself, Drew McIntyre. Punk says that he has watched McIntyre and he has grown respect for him, he heard what he said, Punk says that he saw Drew not only speak out against Nash and Triple H, but Punk watched him put those men down. Punk says that Drew took control of Raw in his absence, and a lot of what he said stuck with Punk, Punk said that Drew reminded him of himself. And then Drew won the Rumble, and Punk was content staying in TNA and New Japan for a bit longer, but Drew called him out, and with the respect that Punk had gained for Drew, how could he not answer that challenge, so here he is. Punk says that at Wrestlemania 28, it will be CM Punk vs Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship. Drew comes out and he grabs a mic, he tells Punk that he is glad that he is back in WWE finally, Drew says that he hopes Punk enjoyed defending his title in the minor leagues, Drew says that now Punk is going to have to deal with the biggest challenge of his career. Drew says that he is going to kick Punk's head off, and he is going to take that WWE Championship from him. Punk says that he sure believes McIntyre, Punk says that Drew is good, for sure, but for Punk he treats every match like the biggest challenge of his career, he says to Drew that maybe he will kick his head off, but he will not take this WWE championship. Drew then tells Punk that we will see about that and he leaves. Punk tells him that we will see, and Punk says that he hopes Drew doesn’t bitch too much after he wakes up from his nap in the ring. Punk then leaves the ring. We see a graphic that the Rock will be appearing on Raw tonight. Next up we see Sting come out, he grabs a mic and he says that last night, he went bell to bell in the Elimination Chamber match, and he lost. Sting then says that at the Royal Rumble, he competed in the Rumble match, he broke the record for longest time in the Rumble, and he went bell to bell, but he lost. Sting says that he worked hard at those matches, and last night at Elimination Chamber Sting noticed someone else with the same tenacity as him. Sting watched Cody Rhodes successfully defend the Intercontenital Championship against one of the most brutal and animalistic competitors Sting has ever seen, Tyler Reks, in a brutal Falls Count Anywhere Iron Man match. Sting says that he has never held the Intercontenintal Championship before, and he has never faced the grandson of a plumber before, but with the tenacity that Cody has shown, and the tenacity that Sting has shown, Sting believes that the two men can burn the house down in a match. Sting says that Cody is not here tonight, but he wants to throw down the challenge before anyone else does. Sting says that at Wrestlemania 28, he wants Cody Rhodes in a match for the Intercontenintal Championship. Sting then leaves the ring. Next up we have AJ Lee come out, she says that last night the Chamber was almost too much for her, she says that she can’t believe how tough it was, but still she eliminated not one, but two women in that match, and she went on to win the whole thing. It’s just that after the match, she was attacked, and by not just anyone, but by Michelle McCool, the woman who dominated 2010. AJ says that if she wants a shot at the title then that is just fine, but she demands to know why she attacked her. AJ leaves the ring. Tyler Reks comes out next, he is enraged, he is yelling into the mic, he says that it should be Sting vs him at Wrestlemania, and he demands that Kevin Nash come out here and grant him the Intercontenintal Championship, since last night, he should have won, if it went into sudden death, he would have won the title. Kevin Nash is not coming out, and Reks keeps yelling at the top of his lungs. Then we hear a gong, and the lights go out, we hear another gong, and the lights come back on to reveal Tyler Reks laying in the ring, unconscious. Finally we see the Rock come out to the ring. Rock grabs a mic and asks everyone how they are doing tonight. Rock says that he wants to clear a few things up. One is that he was getting tired of hearing his name come from John Cena’s mouth every single week, he just wanted to shut Cena up, that is the real reason he came to Survivor Series, Rock says he didn’t care about Randy Orton, they had their issues eight years ago. But he did get the chance to send a message to John Cena. Rock says that the Royal Rumble was different, he just wanted to screw with Cena and give him a taste of his own medicine, Rock says that he remembered seeing Cena do something similar on Smackdown that cost Wade Barrett a few months of his career. Rock then goes onto Elimination Chamber, he says that he did what he did last night simpily because he wanted Cena one on one, Rock says that sure, it would be an honor to be in the same ring as Justin Gabriel, but it just isn’t about that, Rock says for years he has wanted to get his hands on Cena, and now he finally has the chance. Rock says that a third person would only get in the way, he doesn’t want that, he wants his full attention on John Cena, and he wants Cena to have his full attention on the Rock. John Cena then comes out, he tells the Rock that Rock has his full attention, but he tells the Rock to be careful what he wishes for, because now Cena plans on making sure the Rock never comes back to WWE or Hollywood, Cena says that now he plans on putting Rock in a wheelchair. The Rock grabs his mic, and he says that Cena finally understands how the Rock feels about him. Rock says that years ago Cena took shots at the Rock for leaving WWE for Hollywood, Rock says that Cena said he didn’t care about the fans. Rock says that couldn’t be farther from the truth, he loves these people, he says that if it wasn’t for them, he would have nothing, the Rock says he would be nothing. Rock says that he owes these people everything. Rock then says that Cena tried to turn these people on the Rock, and that made the Rock want to do more than just put Cena in a wheelchair, Rock says that he wanted to snap Cenas neck and put him in the ground for that. Rock says that Cena has called this the biggest match of his life at Wrestlemania, Rock says that he is damn right about that. Rock then says that it is not only his biggest match as well, but it is his only match, he has fought Austin and Hogan before, but right now, all he can see is John Cena, and at Wrestlemania, he is going to put Cena down for good. Rock then leaves Cena in the ring, and Raw goes off the air.
Smackdown is up next and the first person we see is Jusin Gabriel he grabs a mic, he says that at Elimination Chamber he won the right to become number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania, he finally did it. Gabriel says that he has never felt a bigger moment of joy in his life, he says that he celebrated for hours, and he called Teddy Long to thank him, he then called a few other people to thank them for helping him as well, he called Heath Slater, he called Ryback, he called David Otunga, and then he went to call his former leader, Wade Barrett, and that is when it hit him, Justin Gabriel says that at Wrestlemania it will be him vs Wade Barrett for the World Heavyweight Championship. Gabriel says that he still wants to thank Wade for helping him out and getting him to where he needs to go, he says that Wade got him a shot at the US title, and look how far that got Justin. Gabriel says thank you, and then he says that at Wrestlemania, even though Barrett is almost like a father figure to him, he will give it his all. Gabriel says that he did not come this far just to lose the biggest fight of his life. Wade Barrett comes out, and he looks at Justin Gabriel, he says to Justin that he is happy for him, and he says that Justin right behind him was always the most talented member of the Nexus, but that is the thing, he may have been talented, but he was always behind Wade Barrett, he was always led by Wade Barrett. Barrett says that there's a reason for this and that reason is because Wade was always meant to be World Champion, Justin would be US Champion at best, and Wade says that he was, he was one of the best, but the fact of the matter is, is that, Gabriel is not ready for what is coming to him at Wrestlemania, Wade says that last year, he almost beat the Undertaker, this year, Gabriel will be no problem. Wade then walks away, but Gabriel says to him that he better stop thinkting that way, or Wrestlemania will be too easy. Barrett turns to look at Gabriel. Justin says that Wade just does not understand. Gabriel says that he doesn’t want his friend in that ring, he doesn’t want his leader in that ring, and he certainly does not want some overly pompous asshole in that ring. Gabriel says that he wants the Wade Barrett in that ring. Wade looks confused. Gabriel says that he wants the Wade Barrett that nearly took Randy Ortons head off, he wants the Wade Barrett that led Nexus until they dethroned John Cena and took their place on top with Barrett at the helm. Justin says that he wants the ame Wade Barrett that the Undertaker got. Barrett tells Gabriel to be careful what he wishes for. Next up we see Teddy Long come out and he says that over the next couple weeks, Smackdown will hold a tournament to decide who faces off against Chris Masters at Wrestlemania for the US Championship, he says that tonight we will have Chris Jericho vs Alberto Del Rio, next week we will have Kaval vs Rey Mysterio, and in two weeks the winners of those matches will meet up to decide who challenges Chris Masters. Next up we see Miz and Riley come out, and they brag about how they defeated that fat slob, the Big Show. Miz continues to make fun of Big Show and call him worthless until he comes out, Big Show says that he has a proposition for Miz, Miz asks what it is, and Big Show says that he has to admit, Miz and Riley are really good in the ring together, they deserve to be Tag Team Champions, but Big Show wants to kick their asses and take their titles still, so he proposes that if he finds a partner, they face off against the Miz and Alex Riley for the Tag Team titles at Wrestlemania. Miz laughs at Big Show and so does Riley. Miz says that if Big Show can find a partner, which he doubts, then they can face them at Wrestlemania. Big Show thanks the both of them and he walks to the back. Next up we see Randy Orton come out, he says that it is outrageous that he does not have a spot at Wrestlemania, he says that thi year, he was Mr Money in the Bank, he won the World Heavyweight Championship, and he put three different men on the shelf this year, Randy says that he guesses that he is far to dangerous in this ring, and no one wants to be around him. Randy says that normally that would be fine, but this is Wrestlemania and he demands a challenge to come forward. Randy then leaves the ring. Next up is our main event of the evening and it is Chris Jericho vs Alberto Del Rio. These two men go at it for a bit, before Del Rio gets the CrossArmbreaker locked in. Jericho however is able to get to the ropes, Jericho then hits the Codebreaker, but Del Rio kicks out. Jericho wastes no time and he immediately goes for the LionTamer, he locks it in and Del Rio taps out. Jericho moves on to the finals in two weeks. Smackdown then goes off the air.
Raw is up next and we start out with John Cena coming out, he grabs a mic and he says that what the Rock said last week was more than powerful, but it was all a lie. Cena looks at the crowd and he tells them that it was, he says that the Rock calls himself the most electrifying man in all of entertainment, Cena says that he can manipulate the crowd with ease, and that is what he did last week. Cena says that if no one believes him, then look at it this way, he went to Hollywood because he was able to make more money, the only reason he came back last year, is because he was going to make huge money at Wrestlemania, and he did. Cena says that the Rock made far more last year than anyone else, and this year it will be the same, the Rock will not only be making more than John Cena, but he will be making more than CM Punk, Drew McIntyre, Wade Barrett, Justin Gabriel, and all the rest. Cena looks at the crowd, and he says that the Rock is a liar, Cena then says that he cares very much about the crowd, that is why he is here constantly, busting his ass for the WWE Universe. Cena says that at Wrestlemania he will bust his ass harder than ever before, and he will leave the Rock a broken mess in the ring. Cena looks at the camera and he says at Wrestlemania all the Rock needs to do is to just bring it. Cena throws down his mic and he leaves the ring. Next up we see Sheamus come out, and he says that this whole year he has failed, he says that he is th Celtic Warrior, and he should be World Champion, but he isn’t. Sheamus says that he lost the Royal Rumble, he says that he lost to Sting, John Cena, and a lot of other people. Sheamus says that he wants to change all of that, and he wants to start out at Wrestlemania, so Sheamus says if anyone wants to feel the might of the Brogue Kick then come out and answer his challenge. Daniel Bryan comes out and he goes to the ring, he grabs a mic, and he says that he feels the same way Sheamus does. Daniel says that he has lost a lot of big matches this year as well, and he too wants to turn it around at Wrestlemania. Daniel says that he accepts Sheamus’ challenge. Daniel extends his hand to Sheamus, and Sheamus laughs at Daniel, and he thanks Daniel for making it easy on him, he then says that he will see the little fella at Wrestlemania. Sheamus then leaves the ring laughing. Next up we have AJ Lee come out againa nd she grabs her mic and she says that she is still waiting on an answer from Michelle McCool, and this week, she is not leaving until she gets one. Kevin Nash then comes out, and he says to AJ that Michelle is not here this week, but she has heard AJ pleas, and next week on Raw, Michelle McCool will be in the building to speak about her actions against AJ Lee. Kevin then walks to the back and AJ looks happy with this answer. Next up we have Cody Rhodes come out, and he says that he was too badly hurt to appear on Raw last week, he says that he is still hurt, but he can at least move, and as for tonight he wanted to be here live, because he has a challenge to answer, and that challenge is Sting’s challenge for the Intercontenintal Championship at Wrestlemania. Cody says that Sting is an absolute Icon of the business, he says that Sting was the best to ever come from WCW, and on top of that, he is a multi time World Champion. Cody says that facing Sting would be an absolute honor, and to face Sting at Wrestlemania would be a dream come true, Cody says that it is no question, he accepts Sting's challenge, and he looks forward to defeating one of the best to ever step inside of the ring. Cody then leaves the ring. Next up we see Tyler Reks come out, and he grabs a mic, and he is laughing, he says that last week was a shock, he wasn’t expecting what he got, he wasn’t expecting the Undertaker, but that is what he got. Reks says that now Wrestlemania is just around the corner, and he feels like he has been chosen to be Undertaker's Wrestlemania opponent. Reks says that if the Undertaker wants to put his streak on the line against Tyler Reks, then fine, Reks says that he will take pleasure in destroying the Undertaker and breaking the streak. Reks then says that hopefully Undertaker shows his face soon and makes it official. Reks drops the mic and he leaves the Ring. Finally we see Drew McIntyre come to the ring and he grabs his mic, he says that finally CM Punk showed back up, and finally he accepted his challenge to a match for the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania. Drew says that no matter how good and how determined CM Punk thinks he is, he does not stand a chance at Wrestlemania. Drew says that Punk has wasted months in the minor leagues, and he has really lowered himself, now to go from that to facing off against one of the most dominant superstars in the World, Drew says that Punk will not stand a chance. CM Punk then comes out and goes down to the ring. Punk says that what Drew calls the Minor Leagues, Punk calls a gold mine. Punk says that those are the superstars of the future, and they are also some of the best superstars in the World, just like in WWE, Punk says that WWE also has some of the best superstars in the world, and those stars are who CM Punk has been fighting for. Punk then says that Drew is one of the best superstars in the world, but he has to learn his place, because he is just one of the best in the world, at Wrestlemania, Punk says that Drew will be going head to head with the absolute best in the world, and he is going to be put in his place by the best in the world. Punk looks at Drew, who is getting upset. Punk asks Drew if he wants to kick him in the head, Drew says that he would. Punk tells him to go ahead and try it. Drew says that he will save it for Wrestlemania, and he starts to walk away, but he quickly turns and goes for a Claymore Kick, but Punk ducks it, and Drew hits the ground, he gets up, and Punk picks him up for the GTS, but Drew escapes, and he rolls out of the ring. Punk tells Drew that he was this close to getting him. Drew looks furious as he storms off. Raw then goes off the air.
Smackdown then comes up next and we see a graphic for our main event between Kaval and Rey Mysterio, but first we see Randy Orton come out, he says that he has waited long enough, he demands that his Wrestlemania opponent show his face right now. We then hear the music of the returning Christian. Christian walks down to the ring and Orton asks him if he is still supposed to be on the shelf. Christian says that yes he is, but he came back tonight because he just wants to say one thing, and that is that a couple months back Orton punted him in the head, and took him out, for no other reason than to send a message. Christian said if it was anyone else, then maybe Randy would have gotten away with it, but seeing as how Randy is out here demanding a Wrestlemania match, that just simply is not going to happen, Christian says that by Wrestlemania he will be one hundred percent, and he says that he wants Orton one on one in a no DQ match. Orton says that is okay, as long as he gets a match at Wrestlemania. But Orton says that he will not be held accountable for what he does to Christian at Wrestlemania. Christian says that neither will he. Next up we have Big Show in the backstage area talking to Alberto Del Rio, and he says that he doesn’t like Del Rio that much, but he needs a partner for Wrestlemania. Del Rio says that Wrestlemania sounds great, but he doesn’t want to go there just to lose because of the Big Show. Del Rio tells Show to face it, Miz is right and he is worthless. Del Rio then walks away. Big Show seems a little flustered. Next we see Big Show again and he is talking to Khali, the only thing is, Khali doesn’t understand what Big Show is saying, and no one is able to translate, so Khali walks away. Big Show is getting more and more upset. Next up we see Wade Barrett walk out to the ring, and he grabs a microphone, he speaks into it and he says that he is kind of looking forward to Wrestlemania, not because he gets to face off against Justin Gabriel, but because ever since he got kicked in the head by Orton he feels like no one has kept their respect for him. Barrett says that everyone needs to remember that no one has ever been able to take the World Championship from him, clean, not Cena, not Orton, not Big Show, not Christian, not anyone. The only person able to beat Wade clean was the Undertaker at last year's Wrestlemania and even then, he did not take the title from Barrett, but even that helps Wades case, because Undertaker is the greatest Wrestlemania performer ever in WWE history, and after the match, he needed to be carted out, and what happened the next month? Wade put him on the shelf and took the World Heavyweight Championship anyway. Wade says that Justin is very talented, but compare their two resumes, and whose truly looks better? Barrett says come Wrestlemania he will knock the head off of Justin Gabriel and he will retain his World Heavyweight Championship, and he will gain back any sort of respect that he has lost. Wade drops the mic and he walks to the back. Next up we see Big Show again and he is talking to Finlay, he says that he has tlaked to just about everyone and no one wants to join him at Wrestlemania, Big Show then asks Finlay if he would join him. Finlay laughs and he says to take on Miz and Riley? Finlay asks Big Show what the point is, Finlay says that it will be a slaughter at Wrestlemania, and he refuses to work with that idea, the answer is a no. Big Show looks disheartened, until he looks off in the distance, he says to this person that he thought he would have no chance of partnering with him at Wrestlemania. Big Show then walks off. Finally we have our main event of Kaval vs Rey Mysterio. This is a very fast paced match, and these two men fight it out for a very long time, eventually Rey hits the 619, but Kaval rolls out of the way of the splash, he then gets on the top rope and he hits the Warriors Way for the win. After the match we see a graphic that says that next week we will see Chris Jericho vs Kaval in the finals. Smackdown then goes off the air.
Raw is up next and we start it out by seeing Michelle McCool come to the ring, she says that she is willing to explain her actions from Elimination Chamber, tonight. Michelle says that from 2009 to 2011, she ruled the Women’s division, she said that no one could take her title from her, except for the Woman she had by her side for a long time, Layla. Michelle says that she was too naive to realize that keeping Lalya so close for so long would be her downfall, but it was, and she learned something from that, but what she never learned, was why after she said I Quit, way back at Over the Limit did everyone forget about her? Michelle says that yes Kaitlyn came in, sure and everyone likes a shiny new toy, so Michelle was able to get past that, then AJ came in, and once again, everyone likes a shiny new toy, so she was able to forgive that, but then the year went on, and she saw AJ fight Trish Stratus. Michelle said that made her a bit jealous, because from the time she ruled over the division, she never once got an opportunity like that, and then it seemed like everyone wanted to fight AJ, such as Mickie James and Gail Kim. Michelle says that yes people did want to face her, but only for her title, she says that everyone wanted to face AJ because it seemed like they all wanted to see how they stacked up to AJ. Michelle says that she never once got such treatment, and to her that was unfair. And on top of all that Michelle says that she cannot believe AJ is taking credit for changing the Womens division, she says it is sick, Michelle says that she is truly the one to change the division. Michelle asks anyone if they remember the Divas Championship. Michelle says that she tossed it away like the garbage it was, she asks if anyone remembers her battles with Layla and Eve, she says that she was the first Woman to main event a Pay Per View, and she led Women inside Hell in a Cell. Michelle says that something caused her to snap, and it was a combination of all these things, that is why she attacked AJ Lee at Elimination Chamber. AJ comes out next and she grabs a mic, she looks at Michelle and she asks her if she is serious, she tells Michelle that she knows what she did for the Women in WWE, but the thing is, is that, yes Michelle did all of those things, but the fact of the matter is, is that AJ treats her opponents like actual people, AJ asks Michelle if she remembers piggy James? AJ says that is the reason that Michelle never got as much respect as AJ. AJ then says that unlike Michelle, she would challenge women to fight her for the Women’s title, as to where Michelle would bully the opponents that were either picked for her, or earned a number one contenders spot, and when Michelles opponents were too tough for her, she would cheat to win, because she is a coward. Michelle gets upset with this, and she cannot believe that she was just called a coward, she says to AJ that if she is a coward, how about the two fight each other at Wrestlemania for the Womens Championship. AJ says that she thought Michelle would never ask, AJ then tells Michelle that she is on. Next up we see Daniel Bryan come out and he says that last week was a humiliation, he says that he wanted to fight Sheamus in a friendly competition, but Sheamus had to do what he did last week. Daniel says that it is now personal and at Wrestlemania 28, he will go for nothing less than to make Sheamus tap out, and feel the humiliation that Daniel Bryan did last week. Next up we see John Cena in the back, he is asked how he is feeling about Wrestlemania, Cena says that he is feeling good, he says that at Wrestlemania he has no chance of losing that match, and he wonders how the Rock is doing sitting on his ass at home watching this. Cena is then told that ironically enough, the Rock is going to be onRaw live next week, to talk about what Cena said last week. John Cena then says that he looks forward to it, and he walks off. Next up we see Tyler Reks come out, and he grabs a mic, he asks where the Undertaker is at, he says that he is waiting for the lights to go out and the Deadman to appear in front of him. Tyler waits for a minute, and he says that is exactly what he thought, the Undertaker is a true coward, Reks says that Undertaker thought about fighting him at Wrestlemania, but changed his mind because he saw what Tyler is capable of. Kevin Nash then comes out and he says to Tyler that he has just gotten word that next week live on Raw the Undertaker will be in the building to confront Tyler Reks. Reks laughs at this and he tells Nash that he will be waiting. Next up we see Sting in the back and he says that he heard Cody last week, and he looks forward to Wrestlemania, but he says that he cannot believe that Cody just thinks that he is going to beat him so easily at Wrestlemania, Sting reminds Cody of sixty three minutes. Sting says he on the other hand knows that it will not be so easy, but he will beat Cody and become the new Intercontenintal Champion. Sting then walks away. Finally we get to see CM Punk in his return match to WWE, he is taking on Jack Swagger. Punk looks great in this match, he taught Swagger throughout the match and he continues to outmanevre him, until he gets Swagger in the Anaconda Vice and makes him tap out. After the match Punk is hit hard by a surprise Claymore Kick by Drew McIntyre. Drew stands tall over Punk to close out the show.
Smackdown is up next and we start out by seeing Miz and Riley come out, and they make fun of the Big Show, they say that old slob cannot seem to find a partner. Miz says that is no surprise, who wants Big Show as a partner anymore. Miz says that he made that mistake once, and so did Chris Jericho, and look what happened the Big Shows empty head ended up costing them the Tag Team titles. Miz then looks at Riley, and he says now, he has actually found a good partner, and look, they have dominated the Tag Team scene this year, they even put a whooping on the Big Show. Miz then says that anyone who wants a shot at the titles can come out now and stake their claim. Big Show comes out, and Miz and Riley roll their eyes. Big Show comes out and he tells Miz to calm down for a second and hold up, because Big Show says that he has a partner after all. Miz asks Show who it is. Big Show tells Miz that he will not find that out now, instead, next week, they will have a contract signing for their match at Wrestlemania. Miz says that it is just some ploy to get the Big Show another Handicap match for the Championships, but whatever. Miz says that it is fine, and that he will see the Big Show next week. Big Show says thank you to Miz and he walks to the back. Next up we have Christian in a match with Alberto Del Rio. Both men fight well, but Christian is able to hit the Killswitch on Alberto Del Rio and win the match. Afterwards, Randy Orton tries to RKO Christian but he gets hit with a Killswitch as well, and Christian is able to walk away from the ring. Next up we have Justin Gabriel come out and he grabs a mic, he takes asecond before he speaks, but he ends up saying that he hopes that everyone doesn’t get the feeling that him and Wade Barrett are mortal enemies. Gabriel says that they love each other, they came up together, in fact Gabriel asks the crowd if he can take them back a little bit to NXT season one, he says that him and Barrett both worked hard in that show, and they were both disrespected in that show, but needless to say, they earned that respect later on, when Wade led Gabriel and the Nexus to great success. Gabriel says he respects Wade; he thinks he will one day be a hall of famer for sure. He once again thanks Wade for getting him that US title shot so long ago, because without that, he would be nowhere. Gabriel says to the audience, that both him and Wade are extremely competitive, and though they are friends, maybe even brothers, at Wrestlemania they will fight like they are years long enemies. Gabriel then leaves the ring. Finally our main event is Chris Jericho vs Kaval. This match is a good one, Jericho gets beat up pretty bad, and he gets hit with the Warriors way, but he kicks out and he keeps on coming, soon after he is able to hit Kaval with the Codebreaker and pin him for the win. Jericho is victorious, and after the match Chris Masters stands atop the stage and holds up his US title, while he smirks at Jericho. Smackdown then goes off the air.

Chapter 9
Surviving War
On the Raw after Bragging Rights, it is announced by the GM that Raw has lost the war with Smackdown at Bragging Rights, however as Micheal Cole is talking he gets interrupted by the music of the Nexus, they all come out, and Wade Barrett grabs the microphone, he says that Raw should not have lost, they should have and could have swept Smackdown, Barrett says if it wasn’t for the Undertaker getting involved in his match he would have beaten Drew McIntyre, and then he says that if Raw could have cooperated with Nexus during the 10 man tag match they would have destroyed Smackdown, but they let their egos get in the way, and they ended up being put in their place by Nexus, Wade says that brings him to John Cena, he says that Cena dared to attack him last night, and he doesn’t understand why, Wade says that he has beaten Cena multiple times, and even took his WWE Championship, and then beat him inside of Hell in a Cell. Wade then says if Cena ever shows himself around any of the Nexus again, he will feel the consequences of his actions. Then John Cena comes out and stands on the stage as Nexus all stare at him from the ring. John Cena has a mic and he says that he knows how good Wade Barrett is, and he knows he was beaten by Wade multiple times. Cena says that he doesn’t deserve another shot at the title right now, he says that he would need to earn it first. But Cena says his goal is still to destroy Nexus, and he says that since Survivor Series is just around the corner, Cena pauses and smiles. Sheamus music hits, and he comes out and stands besides Cena, who continues to smile, then we hear the music of Rated RKO, they both come out and stand beside Cena as well. Cena then says that yes, they are still one short right now, but they all four want the same thing, a five on five traditional Survivor Series tag match, Nexus vs Team WWE. Wade Barrett looks at the other members of Nexus, who all have approving looks on their face, he then looks back at Cena and says that Nexus accepts. The Raw GM exclaims that in light of that announcement, how about we see a preview tonight, Ryback vs Sheamus in our main event. Next we have John Morrison come out, and he says that he wants a new challenge for Survivor Series, he has beaten the Miz, he has beaten R-Truth, and last night he earned a hard fought victory over Shad Gaspard, he wants something new, he is willing to put his title on the line against anyone. Ted Dibiase comes out, and he says that he accepts, and he wants a shot at the US Title. John smiles at him and he says, well I did say anyone, so your challenge is accepted. Next up we have a match between Michelle McCool and Natalya, and Michelle ends up getting counted out after a blindside attack from Eve. Backstage Eve is asked about her actions, and she says that simply put she just wanted a little bit of revenge on Michelle, even if she can’t fight her for the Womens title. Next up we have our main event, Ryback vs Sheamus, both men try to overpower eachother, and Ryback ends up getting the better of Sheamus, and he hits him with his meathook clothesline, Ryback sets up for Shell Shocked, but then Cena, Orton, and Edge all come out, and Ryback looks at them before he turns into a brogue kick. Ryback is pinned by Sheamus, and this is the first pinfall loss the Nexus have suffered, Cena looks into the camera and shrugs, and we see Nexus in the back and they are upset at this result, Raw then goes off the air.
Smackdown is next, and the first thing we see is a new guy, Tyler Reks come out and make his Smackdown debut against a local talent, Tyler Reks is a savage man who beats down and tortures the talent before hitting the burning hammer on him and winning the match. After this we see Drew McIntyre being interviewed backstage, he says that yeah, Smackdown won at Bragging Rights, and yeah, he won his match, but Drew says that it wasn’t right, he was meant to pin Barrett and put him in his place, and bring honor to Smackdown, but the Undertaker ruined that, Drew said that he already beat the Undertaker, and he should just stay away from now on. After this we see Kozlov and Jackson in the ring, they talk about how dominant they were at Bragging Rights, and how not even the Colons could beat them, they talk about how no one can beat them. The Hart Dynasty comes out next, and says that they want another shot at the titles, then they are interrupted by the Colons. Carlito says that firstly the Hart Dynasty have already had enough shots at the tag titles, and secondly he asks if they remember Hell in a Cell where they were beaten by the Colons. Carlito says that it was Primo and Epico who lost to Kozlov and Jackson, and though Carlito says that it was just barely, Carlito says that he himself knows how to beat them, after all he pinned Ezekiel Jackson not too long ago, so why not give them another chance. Tyson Kidd tells them things have changed, since the Colons have been gone, new teams have arrived in WWE, and new champs have risen. Carlito says how about Kozlov, Jackson, and the Hart Dynasty face off against the Colons plus one more in a traditional tag match at Survivor Series, and if the Colons win, they face off against Kozlov and Jackson again for the titles, but if they lose, the Hart Dynasty can have their shot. Hart Dynasty accepts, and then Kozlov says that he too accepts the match. Next up we have Kaval out talking about his win at Bragging Rights, he says that it was such a great feeling to win last night, and he talks about how Smackdown won 2 to 1, and then Kaval brings up that one loss, he says that it was Shad Gaspard, Kaval then calls Shad out, he says to Shad that the two have never faced off before, but he did watch him last night, and Kaval says that he noticed something, he noticed that when faced off against someone with truly great athleticism, Shad cannot seem to catch up, and that is why he lost last night to John Morrison, and Kaval says he knows how good Morrison is, and he says that Shad is no easy challenge, but Kaval won NXT season 2 and that means he has a shot at any title he wants, and he believes after watching Shad at Bragging Rights that he has found his perfect opportunity to challenge for a championship, Shad interrupts with a big boot and then an STO, before leaving the ring. Next up we have Alberto Del Rio talking about how great he did last night, and how he lead his team to victory, he gets interrupted by JTG, who asks him didn’t he get eliminated by Ryback at Bragging Rights, Alberto calls JTG a chihuahua and tells him to get out, JTG leaves and gets ready for his match, it is against Luke Gallows, JTG is able to win this match, but afterwards he is attacked by Del Rio and put in the cross armbreaker. Finally we get a graphic at the end of the night saying that the Undertaker is coming to Smackdown next week to address his actions at Bragging Rights.
Back on Raw we see Team WWE in the ring, and all four men are happy about the victory last week, they finally cost Nexus a match, Cena talks about how that is just a minor victory however, and how at Survivor Series they are going to show Nexus their place in WWE, Cena says that all five men on Team WWE, and yes now there are five, and they are going to destroy the Nexus. Nexus comes out, and Barrett wants to know who the fifth man is. Cena says to Barrett that the fifth man does not want to be revealed until Survivor Series, but Cena says that the fifth man hates Nexus just as much as they do. Wade Barrett tries to call Cenas bluff, and says that there is no fifth man, and that they could not find anyone, however none of this is fasing Cena, and he just continues to let Barrett go on. Cena eventually says to Wade that he needs to talk less and fight more. Wade Barrett then wants to know who is fighting now, he thinks that it is a match between him and Cena, but Cena says no, it is going to be a match between David Otunga and Edge, if David accepts, and he does, he takes the mic, and he tells Edge that he is on. We see the match between David and Edge, and Edge seems to have David beaten, but then Nexus surrounds the ring, and distracts Edge who gets planted by David and loses the match. Next up we have a match between Eve and Maria that is about to get underway, but Michelle McCool comes out and she says to Eve that obviously this rivalry isn’t quite over yet, so Michelle wants one last chapter with Eve, Eve looks at Michelle, and Michelle says that at Survivor Series, since Eve cannot face Michelle for the title, how about they do a little five on five traditional match. Eve looks at Michelle and she says one condition, Michelle tells Eve that there is always a condition with her, but Michelle tells her to go ahead. Eve says that if her team wins, then she is allowed to face Michelle again for the Womens title. Michelle tells Eve, fine if her team wins she is allowed to lose again to Michelle McCool for the title. Next up we have a match between Ted Dibiase and Santino, Ted toys with Santino and he wins quite easily, and then after the match he motions that he will soon have the title around his waist. We then go backstage where we see the Nexus, they are told that next week it will be Heath Slater vs an old rival, Randy Orton.
Back on Smackdown we start out with Shad Gaspard coming out, and explaining how unfair Bragging Rights was for him, and how he should have beaten John Morrison, and if he had another chance, he would be the one coming out victorious over Morrison, and he is tired of hearing that he lost a match everywhere he goes. Then we hear the music of Kaval interrupt, he comes out and says to Shad that he wasn’t able to finish last week when Shad attacked him, he tells Shad that hopefully he is able to get over his loss to Morrison soon, because at Survivor Series it is going to be even worse as he is going to lose his IC title to Kaval, because that is the Pay Per View where Kaval is choosing to use his championship match. Kaval then leaves. Next up we have another Tyler Reks match where he fights another local talent, and once again he destroys the talent. Backstage we see the Colons watching Tyler Reks, they all three seem impressed. Then they are asked about the match tonight between Primo and Tyson Kidd, Primo says that he can’t wait, he says that Tyson Kidd talked way too much last week, and he needed to be shut up, Primo then says that they know things have changed since they have been gone, but they are back now, and just like last time they plan on ruling over this tag division. Next up however, we have JTG call out Alberto Del Rio, he says that Del Rio should come out and face him like a man instead of attacking him from behind. Del Rio comes out, and he says that JTG is not worth his time, and that he has a match tonight anyway, so JTG, should just leave, but JTG does not, Del Rio gets upset about this, and he goes to remove JTG from the ring himself, JTG grabs a pair of brass knuckles from his pocket and when Del Rio approaches him, JTG hits Del Rio in the face with the knuckles. JTG then leaves the ring, and we hear the Great Khali come out, Del Rio however leaves before the match starts. Next up we have Primo vs Tyson Kidd. Tyson Kidd gets the upper hand, and he is able to defeat Primo in the ring, and the Colons come out and collect Primo, and Tyson Kidd grabs the mic and tells the Colons that he alone has no beaten Primo and Carlito, and with the power of Kozlov, Jackson, and his very own David Hart Smith on his side, he says that the Colons better hope their fourth man is one powerful fighter, because right now, they do not stand a chance. After this we finally get to see the Undertaker, he comes out and begins to explain himself, he says that Drew McIntyre was able to beat him inside Hell in a Cell, and he has respect for Drew because of the fight he put up in the Cell, but then Undertaker heard Drew call himself the new Phenom, and the most dominant force in the WWE. Undertaker then recalled Night of Champions where Drew chose to take his title and run. The Undertaker says with the twentieth anniversary of his debut coming up, he asked for one more one on one normal match against Drew McIntyre and at Survivor Series that is what he will get, and this time, if Drew tries to run or get disqualified he will lose the World Heavyweight Championship. We see Drew backstage throwing a fit as the show goes off the air.
Next on Raw we get the picking of the teams for Team Eve vs Team Michelle. Both women are on the stage, and Michelle picks first, she says it should be obvious, she is going to pick her best friend and her partner, Layla. Eve goes next, she says that she looks to pick the strongest woman on the roster, Beth Pheonix. Michelle goes next, she picks an old rival, but one of the greatest women wrestlers of all time, Mickie James. Eve goes next, she picks Natalya. Then Michelle goes next she picks Kelly Kelly, then Eve goes, picking Serena. Michelle goes for her final pick, and she looks to choose, Melina. Eve goes next and she picks former champion, Maryse. Next up we have our Randy Orton vs Heath Slater match, before the match Orton says that this match is not about winning or losing, it is about sending a message to the Nexus, and that is what Randy plans on doing here tonight. The match starts up, and the two go back and forth fighting, it spills out of the ring, and before long Orton grabs a chair and hits Slater with it, getting DQ’d Orton then beats down Heath with the chair, he then throws Heath in the ring, and gives him an RKO, before leaving the ring. Orton walks back and he gets a mic, and he just says that is what I mean by sending a message to the Nexus. Next up John Morrison faces off against Evan Bourne. It is a competitive match, but in the end John Morrison is able to win, he shakes Bournes hand after the match, and then holds up his championship and looks at the hard cam. After this we get the Anonymous Raw GM telling us that next week just six days before Survivor Series we will have one more one on one match and that match will be our main event next week between John Cena and Justin Gabriel. Nexus comes out, and before the show goes off the air, Wade says that he and Nexus will win against Team WWE at Survivor Series, no matter who the fifth man is, if he even exists. Wade then says that Justin Gabriel has a few words real quick. Justin grabs the mic and he talks to John Cena, he says that next week he will show John Cena just how tough the Nexus members are first hand, and then he will do the same at Survivor Series. Wade takes the mic back and he says to Randy Orton, that heis message earlier in the show was loud and clear, but that is not how Randy really wants it to be. Wade drops the mic, and the show ends.
Back on Smackdown we see Drew McIntyre start out the night he does not seem too happy at all, he says that at Survivor Series he is forced to pin or submit the Undertaker, Drew says that he does not believe the Undertaker deserves another shot at the title, but since that is what he is getting, then Drew now is going to have no choice but to beat the Undertaker down so bad that he will be forced to retire, Drew says that is ironic considering he is going to beat the Undertaker into retirement twenty years after he made his initial debut. Drew then says, but that is what is going to have to happen at Survivor Series. Next up we have another Tyler Reks match, he destroys another local competition. After Reks goes backstage he is greeted by the Colons, Carlito says to Reks that they could really use him on their Survivor Series team, and if Reks joins them it could perhaps help him out with future opportunities, Reks walks away, and we see Carlito follow him. The Colons have a match next against the Hart Dynasty, the fight goes back and forth for a while, however Kozlov and Jackson come out and they distract Primo and Epico, who then get attacked by the Hart Dynasty and lose the match. The Hart Dynasty walks away laughing after the match after Tyson Kidd pinned the last of the Colons, Epico. Next up we have Alberto Del Rio drive into the arena and walk to the ring, he grabs a microphone, and he speaks to JTG saying that last week was a cheap shot, and he is a hypocrite for doing what he did last week. Del Rio says if JTG wants to fight like a man, then let’s fight like men. Del Rio says that he will fight JTG like a man at Survivor Series. JTG comes out and he accepts the match for Survivor Series. Our main event comes, and it is a Hell in a Cell rematch between Kaval and Joe Hennig. Both men fight for a while, and just as Kaval gets the upper hand, Shads music hits, but he does not come out, once the music dies down and Kaval turns around he gets hit with the Perfect Plex and loses the match.
It is the final Raw before Survivor Series, and we start out with a match between the number one picks, Layla vs Beth Phoenix. Layla tries to fight, and she does okay, but Beth overpowers Layla and wins the match up. Next up we have a contract signing between Ted Dibiase and John Morrison, both men sign the contract, and then Ted says finally that this Sunday at Survivor Series he will win his first championship in WWE, and who better to win it from than Mr Money in the Bank himself John Morrison. Morrison takes the mic and he says to Ted Dibiase, that yes he will win the US title this Sunday, just like he won against Cody Rhodes at Summerslam, or like how he won the Triple Threat match all the way back at Wrestlemania. Ted Dibiase flips the table, and John Morrison stands up and gets in his face, Ted backs down, and motions that he will have the title, before leaving. Next up we have another womens match, this time it is between old rivals, Mickie James and Maryse, this time it goes in Team Michelles favor because Mickie James ends up winning the match. Our main event comes along and we have John Cena vs Justin Gabriel. Both men fight back and forth for a little while, Cena seems to be surprised with Justin Gabriels amazing ability, and the two fight to a stalemate for a moment, but then as the two men are having a staredown, Cena grabs a mic, and he says to Gabriel, you are real good kid, and I hate to do this, but sometimes you just have to fight fire with fire. Orton, Edge, and Sheamus all come out, and attack Justin Gabriel, then after that the rest of the Nexus come out and they fight Team WWE 5 on 4, and they drive out Team WWE, and the show ends with the two teams having a staredown to end the final Raw before Survivor Series.
It is the final Smackdown before Survivor Series, and we start out with Kozlov, Jackson, and the Hart Dynasty come out, and Tyson Kidd has the mic, he says that he alone has pinned all three of the Colons, and then he says at Bragging Rights, that the Colons lost the match to Kozlov and Jackson, and then last week the Hart Dynasty had beaten the Colons, and not to mention the Colons still have not gotten a fourth man. The Colons come out, and they get in the ring, looking defeated, like they have already lost, and Carlito says that, perhaps they are beaten already and have no shot at Survivor Series, but no matter what they will fight to the end, just like they will right now. Carlito then hits Kozlov, and a huge brawl breaks out. Soon the Colons start to get destroyed in the ring, but then out comes Tyler Reks. Reks gets in the ring, and David Hart Smith charges towards him. Tyler Reks throws David Hart Smith over the top rope to the ground. The attack has stopped, the other three men are looking at Tyler Reks. The Colons take advantage of this and attack again, but Ezekiel Jackson does not break his gaze from Tyler Reks. The Colons drive off Kozlov and Tyson Kidd. Ezekiel Jackson charges at Tyler Reks, but Reks flatens him with a massive clothesline, Jackson rolls from the ring, and the four men retreat from the ring. Next up we have Del Rio talking in his mansion about how he is going to defeat JTG this Sunday at Survivor Series. After this we have a match between Shad and Chris Jericho. Shad looks good in this match he looks like he is beginning to get to Chris Jericho, but then Kaval comes out, and costs Shad the match. Kaval gets in the ring after the match and he beats up and attacks Shad, before leaving the ring. Finally Drew McIntyre beats Yoshi Tatsu in a match. After that he grabs a mic and exclaims how he is going to beat and end the Undertaker once and for all this Sunday at Survivor Series and retain his World Heavyweight Championship. Lights go out, and when they come back on the Undertaker is standing there right in front of Drew, the two have a staredown to finish out the night.

2020.06.06 22:58 Creme_Eggs Wrestlemania 22 - Rebooked

Wrestlemania 22: Big Time
I have nine matches on the card, mostly the same with some changes, the Playboy Pillow Fight between Torrie Wilson and Candice Michelle is scrapped, I considered keeping it in as a bathroom break match but realised the card would be too long, and the match could be easily done as a backstage segment with celebrities or legends in a locker room/bedroom setting if need be.
Booker T/Boogeyman is also scrapped as that was ultimate filler and was also done at Saturday Night's Main Event I believe, instead I added Booker to the Money in the Bank Ladder Match and Boogeyman can be part of a backstage segment were he's better utilised imo.
WWE Championship: John Cena(c) vs Triple H (Time: 22:02)
World Heavyweight Championship: Randy Orton(c) vs Rey Mysterio (Time: 17:28)
No Holds Barred: Mr McMahon vs Shawn Michaels (Time: 18:22)
The Streak: The Undertaker vs Kurt Angle (Time: 29:38)
WWE Women's Championship: Trish Stratus(c) vs Mickie James (Time: 08:48)

2020.05.29 21:27 AEWPunk525 Rebooking WWE throughout the 2010s part 1

Chapter 1
End of the Vince McMahon era
So let us assume that Vince is finally done with WWE, he gives full control to me (for some strange reason) and he wants Wrestlemania 26 to be his last project. In the build to WM 26 I would be changing nothing, because it was a good Mania, well, okay the only thing I would change is that if Vince loses to Bret then he must leave WWE forever, thus letting the audience know that Vince is going to be leaving the company. Now we finally get to WM 26 and it is my first night in control of the company, I put the card like this.
  1. Yoshi Tatsu wins the battle royal
  2. ShoMiz retain tag titles Morrison and R-Truth
  3. Cody Rhodes defeats Ted Dibiase and Randy Orton
  4. Drew McIntyre wins MITB
  5. Triple H defeats Sheamus
  6. Mysterio defeats CM Punk
  7. Bret Hart defeats Vince McMahon
  8. Edge defeats Chris Jericho to win the World Heavyweight title
  9. Team Mickie James wins
  10. Batista defeats John Cena to retain the WWE championship
  11. Undertaker defeats Shawn Micheals in the “Streak vs Career” match
So Wrestlemania is over, the Raw after is promising to be a really good one. It starts with Vince McMahon coming out and saying goodbye to the WWE universe, he is then interrupted by Bret Hart, who comes down. Vince asks Bret if he got enough chair shots in, Bret chuckles and says to Vince that no matter what has happened in the past, it was Vince who got Bret a job in the WWF I mean E, and for that Bret will be forever grateful, him and Vince then hug it out, and finally after almost 13 years we have closure to this saga. Bret then tells everyone that one more person would like to come out and say goodbye, Shawn Micheals, he comes down, and Bret and Vince stand to the side, and let Shawn have his moment, Undertaker tips his cap to Shawn and Triple H comes down looking emotional after Shawn is done with his speech, the four legends walk up the ramp, and all four of them turn to the crowd before going backstage, this is the last we will see of either Vince or Shawn. When we get back from commercial we see ShoMiz in the ring with each other, Miz begins to brag about the great showing over Morrison and Truth, Miz talks about how no one can beat them, then the Hart Dynasty comes out, Miz makes fun of them and says that he hopes they are proud of themselves for helping beat up an old man last night, then Tyson Kidd tells Miz that they are getting a shot at the title, right now, Miz throws a fit for a minute, before hit with a surprise Hart attack, the bell rings and David Hart Smith, knocks down the Big Show while Tyson pins Miz for a shock victory, we have new tag team champions now, next we see Sheamus come out and challenge Triple H to another match, Triple H does not answer Sheamus tonight. Next we see the Miz in an interview segment, he is humiliated, and he is in the middle of saying that him and Big Show are invoking their rematch clause when he is stopped by Yoshi Tatsu, who proceeds to remind Miz of his battle royal win at Wrestlemania, he then says that his victory at Wrestlemania has earned him a US title shot next week on Raw. Miz storms off as we see Yoshi Tatsu laugh as he does. Next we have a rematch from last night, Orton vs Rhodes vs Dibiase, this time Dibiase wins and he brags about how he was truly the best member of Legacy, then he gets interrupted by Cody who reminds him that last night he was the one who won, he won the big one at Wrestlemania, Ted then lays down a challenge for Cody one on one, and Cody tells Ted that he will think about it. At the end of the night we see Batista brag about beating and destroying John Cena at WM. Cena comes out and he capatilizes on Batistas massive ego, he challenges Batista to a rematch that night, Batista says Cena doesn’t deserve a rematch and he declines.
The Smackdown after also seems a bit promising. Jericho comes out right away, and he cries and whines about losing at Wrestlemania, he tells the world that he is invoking his rematch clause at Extreme Rules, Edge comes out to confront Jericho, he makes fun of him and mocks him for losing at WM, he tells Jericho that at Extreme Rules he will get a… SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR!. Jericho tries to attack Edge, but Edge ducks and hits the spear on Jericho. We cut to the back where we see Drew Mcintyre watching a monitor, he gets interviewed and says that he doesn’t care if Jericho or Edge is the World Heavyweight Champion because soon he plans on cashing in Money in the bank and becoming a double champion. Next we see CM Punk with the SES and his NXT rookie Darren Young in the ring, Punk talks about how WM doesn’t matter and that it is time to move on, and even though Mysterio will not be a member of the SES, they will have a new member, and that man is Darren Young, Young seems reluctant about this, but Punk tells him to sit down, he does and Punk gets his razor ready, but then Rey Mysterio comes out and attacks Punk he takes the razor and tries to shave Punks head, but Punk gets away. Next we have Morrison and Truth vs Cryme Tyme, Morrison makes quick work of JTG and wins the match. Shad gets in the ring and confronts JTG, then he attacks him, which is the break up of Cryme Tyme. Shad is requested for an interview but he ignores it. McIntyre comes out next with his briefcase and his IC title, he talks about how soon Vince McMahons prophecy will come true and he will finally become a World champion, Matt Hardy comes out and confronts Drew saying that he shouldn’t worry about the World title just yet, because he has another title that he is defending now, and it is the IC championship, which Matt Hardy wants, and pretty soon he plans on getting that title shot, Matt drops the mic and then walks away.
Raw comes around next week, we have our main event for the US title between the Miz and Yoshi Tatsu. But first we have John Cena come out, he talks about how he slipped up at Wrestlemania (So remember that AA reversed into a Batista bomb at WM 26? Well that is what happened here, only Cena did not kick out) Cena requests a Last Man Standing match at Extreme Rules for the championship against Batista, Batista comes out and asks Cena what his malfunction is, and how he could possibly want a rematch, especially in a Last Man Standing match, Batista reminds Cena about how he broke his neck, and this time he is going to break Cenas leg, he accepts the challenge. We then have an interview with Bret Hart and the new tag champions the Hart Dynasty in the ring, this is when the new tag titles are unveiled, and we then see Big Show interrupt them, he tells them to enjoy those new belts while they can because ShoMiz is going to invoke their rematch clause at Extreme Rules. David Hart Smith grabs a mic and challenges Big Show one on one, Big Show accepts. Smith puts up a great fight but ultimately loses to the Big Show after a chokeslam. We see the Miz getting ready, he hears the news about Extreme Rules and seems happy about it, and he says that soon he will once again be a tag team champion, and as for tonight Yoshi Tatsu is going to be the next victim of the Miz when he loses in the main event tonight. Next Triple H comes out, and he talks about all of the good times he had with Shawn while they were on the road for all of those years, he is attacked from behind by Sheamus who has a steel pipe. After this we get another match it is Dibiase and Rhodes vs Local talent. Rhodes and Dibiase both try to get the pin in the match, it almost costs them, but then Dibiase hits Dream street and then pushes Cody off of the apron and gets the pin and the victory. We then see Yoshi Tatsu getting ready for the match, he is focused and is the most serious we have ever seen him, all he says is, tonight he will gain his first championship in WWE. We get back from commercial as Yoshi Tatsu enters the match, we then see the Miz come down and we get the US title graphic, the match then starts. The fight lasts a while and goes back and forth. Neither man gives an inch to the other. After a while Yoshi hit one of his roundhouse kick finishers, he goes for the pin on the Miz, but Miz slides his arm underneath the ropes and gets the rope break, Yoshi pulls Miz to the center of the ring, and tries to pin him again, only this time the Miz barely kicks out. Yoshi waits for the Miz to get up, and he goes for another kick, but the Miz is able to reverse and hit the Skull Crushing finale in order to win the match and retain his United States championship.
Smackdown starts out with JTG begging Shad to come out, he reminds Shad of all the good times they had, and he wants to forgive Shad, he just wants to know why Shad did what he did. Shad comes out, he says that he was tired of the dead weight, he wants to be his own man, and intends on showing all of WWE what he is capable of on his own, and he is going to use JTG as an example, he attacks JTG again, and brutalizes him, Shad pulls out a strap and beats JTG with it as hard as he can. Shad leaves JTG a broken mess in the ring. Next we have Drew Mcintyre vs Finlay. Mcintyre beats up Finlay and wins the match, he continues his attack to try and make an example, but Matt Hardy comes out and hits the twist of fate on Drew. He then gets a table and puts Drew on it, Matt hits his leg drop on Drew sending him through a table. After this we see that it will be Drew McIntyre vs Matt Hardy in a tables match for the IC title at Extreme Rules. Next we have a match between R-Truth and Dolph Ziggler, Ziggler wins the match, and when Morrison gets in the ring to check on his partner Ziggler taunts him as he walks away, that match will happen next week on Smackdown. Next we have Edge and Chris Jericho in the ring together talking about the steel cage, nothing happens until the end, when Jericho throws his mic at Edge and then hits the Codebreaker on Edge, then he mocks Edge and hits the spear, Jericho then holds up the title before throwing it down on Edge. Finally the main event of the night, CM Punk wants his revenge on Mysterio, he sends Luke Gallows to fight him. Mysterio takes a beating, but he beats Gallows, then he challenges Punk to a rematch at Extreme Rules, and if Punk loses then Mysterio will shave his head, Punk walks away looking perplexed.
Raw next week is in England, we start out with the Miz speaking, he talks all about how good his performance was last week against Yoshi Tatsu, and how it is going to be even better at Extreme Rules when him and Big Show face off with the Hart Dynasty in a tornado tag match, he then tells everyone that he has a match tonight against Tyson Kidd, who then comes out to meet Miz in the ring, the match happens and the Miz wins, things begin to look down for the Hart Dynasty, and the Miz and Big Show celebrate. Triple H is hurt this week due to the attack of Sheamus, who comes down to the ring with his pipe in hand and tells the world that at Extreme Rules it will be him vs Triple H in a no holds barred match, he looks down at his pipe, and he looks at the camera and says Triple H, are you ready? Next we once again have Rhodes and Dibiase vs local talent again, this time Rhodes picks up the pin after knocking Dibiase off of the ring apron. After the match Dibiase gets in the ring, and him and Rhodes have some words for each other, then the new Raw GM, Bret Hart comes out and he tells the men that they will settle their differences at Extreme Rules in a submission match. Next we have the return of Randy Orton, he says that yes, he did lose at Wrestlemania and the Raw after, but he is still at the top of his game, and no matter who it is, Cena or Batista Orton looks to become the next number one contender. Randy Orton then comes out and takes down Chavo in seconds and wins his match, he looks to turn everything around. Finally on Raw we have a contract signing between Batista and John Cena, it devolves into chaos, like you would think, and Cena ends up putting Batista through the table and counting to ten before raising his arms in celebration.
Smackdown. Edge comes out, and tells everyone how hard it hit him that Chris Jericho was going to be a true challenge in the Extreme Rules after Edge got hit with the spear last week, he then says that the only problem for Chris is that he is trapped in a cage with Edge, and when that cage lowers Edge will end this rivalry once and for all when he destroys Chris Jericho and retains his World Heavyweight Championship. Next we see Slam Master J try and talk to Shad, as he was once good friends with Cryme Tyme, Shad tells J that at Extreme Rules, he will get all he needs when he faces JTG in a strap match, J tells Shad that he can’t do that, Shad tells J that he is right, and he needs to warm up first, then he tells J that he is going to ask for a match tonight, Shad Gaspard vs Slam Master J. That match happens Shad delivers a big boot right away, and then plants Slam Master J into the ground, Shad pins him and wins the match, Shad gets the strap and begins to beat down Slam Master J. JTG comes out and runs Shad out of the ring before checking on Slam Master J. CM Punk comes out next, and he begins to talk about Mysterios challenge, he talks about how he thought about it, and he has accepted the challenge of Mysterio, he doesn’t care about the stipulation, after Wrestlemania, he must beat Mysterio in order to restore faith in Straight Edge in the eyes of the WWE universe. Mysterio comes out and tells Punk that nobody will ever have faith in the SES, they will always however have faith in freedom, and the shaving of Punks head will be a massive victory for freedom around the world. Finally we see John Morrison vs Dolph Ziggler, and after a good match Morrison wins clean over Ziggler. Then we see Matt Hardy vs Mike Knox. Mike Knox gets some good offense and he nearly beats Hardy, but Hardy continues the fight, and he ultimately hits the twist of fate and beats Mike Knox, after the match Matt Hardy struggles to get up as Drew McIntyre stands on the stage looking at Hardy. Drew holds up his IC title as the show goes off the air.
This is the Monday Night Raw where the Superstars were stuck in England due to a volcanic explosion, so I can’t really change that. Anyway the Smackdown stars are here, and so is Triple H, who comes down and talks about the situation, he gets interrupted by CM Punk, the two go back and forth for a minute before Punk attacks Triple H and Mysterio saves Triple H. We get massages from Batista and Sheamus that night talking about how they are going to win their matches this Sunday at Extreme Rules. The main event comes and it is a six man tag match between Punk, Gallows, and Jericho vs Mysterio, Triple H, and Edge. The end of the match comes and Punk and Triple H are going back and forth, Triple H hits the facebuster, and as Punk is using the ropes to get up, he gets hit with a surprise 619, and then stumbles into a Pedigree from Triple H, who pins Punk to win the match.
The go home Smackdown begins with a tag team match of Morrison and R-Truth vs Dolph Ziggler and Mike Knox, it is a good match, but Morrison pins Knox to win the match. Next we have CM Punk talking about how Mysterio broke the rules last night on Raw, and how he would have been victorious had Mysterio not interfered between him and Triple H while they were the legal men, he calls out Rey, who comes down to the ring, they both talk about their match on Sunday, before Punk hits Mysterio with the mic, and Luke Gallows destroys Mysterio in the ring. Gallows then lifts Mysterio and puts him on Punks shoulders, Punk then nails the Go to Sleep on Rey, and the SES leaves the ring. Next we have Shad in a singles match with JTG, the match never starts, instead JTG attacks Shad from behind with a strap, he beats up Shad for a bit, before Shad escapes the grasp of JTG, he moves away rather quick. Next we have Drew McIntyre in the ring, he starts to talk about Extreme Rules and how he will continue his winning streak, then Matt Hardy interrupts him, he talks about how last week he overcame a monster like Mike Knox, and on Sunday he will put Drew through a table and become the new Intercontinental Champion. Drew attacks Matt, he brutalizes him on the outside of the ring, and clears off the announcers table, he gets Matt on top, and then climbs on himself, only to be nailed with a quick twist of fate and put through the table, Matt walks away all smiles. Finally we have Edge and Jericho face to face, they get into a deep conversation about the Ego Maniacs, about Edges injury, and about Wrestlemania, Jericho says that Edge got a little lucky at Mania, and this Sunday Jericho is going to prove that Edge is nothing more than a weak broken man, who is unfit to hold the World Heavyweight title. This is the last show before Extreme Rules.
Extreme Rules
  1. Drew McIntyre retains against Matt Hardy
  2. Ted Dibiase defeats Cody Rhodes (Cody has no submission, and he ends up passing out to the Million Dollar Dream)
  3. Hart Dynasty retains against ShoMiz
  4. Sheamus defeats Triple H (After an attack from behind Triple H is sidelined)
  5. CM Punk defeats Rey Mysterio
  6. Shad squashes JTG

2020.05.28 14:29 rosheromil Rebooking WrestleMania 34

Welcome to another one of my WrestleMania rebookings where I look at what could have been at some of the lesser editions of the Show of Shows. This version takes us back to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. This is slightly unrelated but I will say the overall feel of this event felt all too similar to WrestleMania XXX and they definitely should have switched up the logo, theme etc. etc. so that it stood out on its own. Anyways, the show itself was alright but not great by any means and here's what I would have done differently...

WRESTLEMANIA 34

(Pre-Show)
Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal - Broken Matt wins by last eliminating The Miz
Just like in real life, have Broken Matt win the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. The Broken gimmick never truly worked in the WWE due to the fact that it took way too long to secure the rights to the character and they never seemed to be fully behind it. To try and give Matt some momentum, I’d keep the end similar but have Brother Nero not Bray return to give him the win.
RAW Tag Team Championship - The Revival def. The Bar
It saddens me to put this match on the pre-show but given how the tag team division was and still is promoted means its necessary. Still, being on the pre-show in a good match against The Revival is better than losing to Braun Strowman and a 10 year old kid. By this point, Id have Cesaro and Sheamus as babyface champions being dethroned by the tag team specialist Dawson and Wilder.
Chyna Memorial Battle Royal - Becky Lynch wins by last eliminating Sasha Banks
I think the Women’s WrestleMania Battle Royal should definitely be renamed to the Chyna Memorial Battle Royal in honour of the late, great 8th wonder of the world. Unlike the men’s match, the women’s bout features more top stars including the likes of Bayley, Carmella, Naomi and the Riott Squad. I’d have Becky Lynch take advantage of a mix up between Bayley and Sasha to win the inaugural match.
(Main Show)
Intercontinental Championship - Seth Rollins def. Dean Ambrose (c)
Unfortunately, in real life, Dean Ambrose got injured before WrestleMania but in a perfect world, the Lunatic Fringe stays injury-free and betrays his former partner Rollins in a role-reversal of the Shield break-up four years prior. Have the two former world champions reignite their long rivalry and fight one on one at WrestleMania for the Intercontinental Championship. Seth picks up the win and the title in a match that would rival any of the great openers in the history of WrestleMania.
Ladder Match for the United States Championship - Rusev def. Bobby Roode (c), Baron Corbin, Randy Orton, Dolph Ziggler, Jinder Mahal & Shelton Benjamin
Ladder matches have become somewhat of a tradition at WrestleMania over the years. Nowadays multi-man ladder matches represent a great way of getting deserving superstars on the card to fight for a midcard title. This year instead of that strange fatal-four way we got, I would have had a ladder match involving seven of Smackdown’s best superstars fighting for the United States Championship. I would give the insanely over Bulgarian Brute the win....it was held on Rusev Day after all.
RAW Women’s Championship - Nia Jax def. Alexa Bliss (c) & Mickie James
This was a decent little story between the bitchy champion Bliss, her friend Mickie and the outcast Nia. The whole mean girls angle worked here and it got Nia over as a monster face. I would keep this feud the same but I would have also added James into the match to make it tougher for Nia. Whilst I'm not a big fan of Jax, I'd have her win to pay off the storyline and become new RAW Women's Champion
Smackdown Tag Team Championship - Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn def. The New Day (c)
Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are brilliant together whether they are feuding or teaming. At this point, they were the best heels on Smackdown as a duo which was surprising given how Sami was so used to being a face. Instead of having them lose to Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon in a match where they didn’t even get an entrance, I would have them challenge and beat the Smackdown Tag Team Champions the New Day so they can celebrate a great moment together on the Grandest Stage.
Braun Strowman def. Bray Wyatt
Whilst I loved the Ultimate Deletion between Broken Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt that they did on the road to this year's WrestleMania, I would’ve saved that for later down the line as I think Bray and Braun should have clashed at Mania. Braun was very over as a monster face whilst Bray at his best is one of the top heels in the company. Build this rivalry based on their history then have Braun overcome his former mentor Bray on the Grandest Stage of Them All to earn a WrestleMania moment that doesn't involve a ten-year old child. Sorry Nicholas.
Smackdown Women’s Championship - Charlotte (c) def. Asuka
I would keep this match the same. Charlotte and Asuka squaring off was much anticipated and it delivered. I would have saved the match for later on in the show however as it was one of the matches that the fans were most eager to see. Charlotte winning and breaking Asuka’s streak was a shock but I don’t think it was necessarily a mistake. Charlotte was very much the face of the women’s division at this point and it built her up for an inevitable clash with Ronda Rousey. However, I think you give them a bit more time and make Asuka look stronger in defeat.
No Holds Barred - Daniel Bryan def, Shane McMahon
Daniel Bryan coming out of retirement at the scene of his greatest accomplishment was almost too good to be true. The Mercedes Benz Superdome erupting into yes chants as Bryan made his way to the ring to compete for the first time in three long years was a great WrestleMania moment. However, the match itself fell a bit flat. Instead of having Bryan return to partner Shane against Owens and Sami, I would have had him return to fight Shane. Have the story be that Vince and Shane have been keeping Bryan from coming back by falsifying medical reports as they don’t want him to return, after all he is not their 'face of the company' and never will be. Bryan finds out, gets cleared and returns to beat Shane in a modern day version of the HBK vs Vince Street Fight from WrestleMania 22.
Kurt Angle & Ronda Rousey def. Triple H & Stephanie McMahon
Whilst Angle could’ve arguably been in singles action at his first Mania in over a decade, having him as Rousey’s partner worked well in what was the only great match in New Orleans. The whole dynamic of Angle being the RAW GM, rebelling against his bosses Trips and Steph to side with the badass new recruit Rousey was brilliant. The duo of Rousey and Angle also works well considering how Rousey was trying to transition from real world fighter to sports entertainer much like how Angle did to perfection all those years ago. Keep this bout exactly the same with Ronda getting her hands on Triple H and then tapping out Steph to win by submission. Like I said, this was the best match of the night.
The Undertaker def. John Cena
Cena calling out the Undertaker and losing to him in minutes just didn’t sit right with me. If you’re going to do Cena vs Undertaker then do it properly with a proper build and a satisfying match. Taker hadn’t been seen since his loss to Reigns in Orlando. In my version, that not the main event and Taker doesn’t have his farewell send off because in hindsight that wasn’t the last of him. Instead maybe he leaves his gloves in the ring but that’s it. So the next year we get a similar storyline with Cena wanting to known if Undertaker is retired or not. However, this time Taker returns a few weeks before Mania to answer the call, setting up a match between two of the greatest of all time at WrestleMania at the very place Taker lost the streak four years prior but this time the Deadman prevails in the Superdome.
WWE Championship - Shinsuke Nakamura def. AJ Styles (c)
This was billed as a dream match but ultimately fell a bit flat for some reason. My thinking is that they weren’t allowed to properly express themselves. This feud should be kept the same, both Styles and Nakamura enter the match as babyfaces. The bout really did feel like a clash of two world-class performers so in that sense it worked. Have them go all out for 25 minutes and leave nothing back, I’d have Nakamura dethrone the champion after an instant classic and then they shake hands after. Then they can continue the feud and maybe do a Styles' heel turn later down the line.
Triple Threat for the Universal Championship - Finn Balor def. Brock Lesnar (c) & Roman Reigns
This was the fourth time in a row that Roman Reigns headlined WrestleMania and the third time it proved to be an utter disappointment. Reigns vs Lesnar was a lose-lose situation for WWE fans as many were tired of seeing a part-timer as champion but also not many wanted Reigns to be the one to dethrone him. In the end, the company just had Lesnar win in a really dull main event. Instead, I think you add the first ever Universal Champion, Finn Balor, into the mix making it a triple threat matchto give someone for the fans to root for. The Demon King pins Roman to reclaim the belt he never lost and leave the fans happy at the end of the show...

Basic build:
Match 1: Andre the Giant memorial has the same build
Match 2: The Cruiserweight Tournament as it happened in real life is how it goes down in this booking
Match 3: Usos vs Bludgeon Brothers vs New Day build remains the same
Match 4: Roman Reigns vs Rusev. Roman Reigns loses the Elimination Chamber match to a returning Undertaker, and goes into a bit of a downward spiral, losing some matches on Raw. Following Fastlane, Rusev comes over to Raw to chastise Roman about his recent failures, and this pisses off Roman, who goes over to Smackdown to attack Rusev. Their back and forth exchanges become so heated that Kurt Angle and Daniel Bryan both agree to sanction a match at Wrestlemania between the two, no holds barred.
Match 5: The build for Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey vs Triple H and Stephanie remains the same
Match 6: Bobby Roode vs Randy Orton. Randy Orton wins the United States Championship from Bobby Roode at Fastlane, and invokes his rematch clause for the next night on Smackdown. Jinder Mahal interferes and causes a disqualification, believing he should have won. Jinder and Roode have a number 1 contender's match on Smackdown that Roode wins, who goes on to Wrestlemania to try and regain his United States Championship.
Match 7: The build for Alexa Bliss vs Nia Jax remains the same
Match 8: Braun Strowman earns a Raw tag team championship match for Wrestlemania, but is unable to find a partner. Eventually on Raw, he is able to speak to Finn Balor, who agrees to team with Braun at Wrestlemania. The Bar are able to set up a 1 on 2 handicap match, themselves vs Finn Balor, the night before Mania, and as they are beating up Balor, Strowman comes down to make the save, resulting in a no contest, but with the babyfaces standing tall.
Match 9: The build for Charlotte Flair vs Asuka remains the same
Match 10: The Miz vs Seth Rollins vs John Cena. Following his defeat at Elimination Chamber, the Miz tries to play off the fact it doesn't matter because he is still the Intercontinental Champion, and that won't change no matter who he faces. Out comes Seth Rollins who makes the claim he should receive a title shot at Wrestlemania. Miz puts him in a 1 on 2 handicap match against the B-Team, and if he wins he receives the title shot. Rollins wins. As Miz is about to raise his title during the post-match face to face, John Cena comes out and says that he's here to win the one thing he hasn't been able to do in his entire career, win the Intercontinental Championship and become a grand slam champion. Seth Rollins tries to tell Cena that he's doing exactly that, and Cena missed his chance, however, John Cena uses his pull backstage to get himself a one on one match with the Miz, which he wins. Cena is then inserted into the Intercontinental Championship match, with the focus being put on which of the two will become a grand slam champion.
Match 11: AJ Styles vs Shinsuke Nakamura build remains the same
Match 12: Daniel Bryan and Shane vs KO and Sami Zayn build remains the same
Match 13: Brock Lesnar vs the Undertaker. At Elimination Chamber, one of the slots is not competed for, and instead is a surprise entrant to the match. Roman Reigns is the last man standing of the 5 other competitors, and he looks to the final pod, but the arena goes black. We hear the gong. The lights come back on and Undertaker is in the pod. The pod opens and after about 2 minutes he hits the Tombstone Piledriver onto Roman Reigns to earn a shot at Lesnar at Wrestlemania. The Undertaker cuts a promo about how it was in New Orleans that Lesnar broke the streak, and it's going to be at New Orleans that the Undertaker finally puts that shame to rest, and having one last championship run while he still can. Lesnar chastises the Undertaker's ability, with Heyman saying Taker stands no chance against the Beast at Wrestlemania. Taker says he needs to win, and he's so sure that he's going to that if he doesn't win, he's done. The Undertaker will retire if he fails to beat Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania, and the match is now title vs career.

AJ Styles vs John Cena

Stephanie McMahon puts pressure on Rollins to regain the title so Raw has two world titles and hires Big Show as Rollins insurance policyholders time ensure he wins at Summerslam but Rollins says I want to do this all by myself and injures the Big Show. We get to the match and they go 25 minutes when out of no where Triple H appears and pedigrees Roman Reigns and tells Seth to pin him and Seth says no which prompts Triple H to pedigree Rollins then he pedigrees Ambrose.

2020.01.24 23:20 RogerGunz Saw a bunch of folks asking about drinking games for the Royal Rumble, so I thought I'd share my rules

*Note - a lot of these came from previous rules posted on this sub.
I watch the Royal Rumble with four other people (five people in total), so before we start each person draws five random numbers (between 1-30). These five numbers will be YOUR wrestlers.
ASSIGN A DRINK
-Your wrestler eliminates someone (assign 1 drink)
-Your wrestler wins (assign someone to finish his/her drink)
TAKE ONE DRINK
-Your wrestler is eliminated
-Someone is eliminated in less than 10 seconds
-Somone is eliminated by a partneally
-Someone eliminates his/her self
-Multiple people work together to eliminate someone
-Someone points to the WrestleMania sign
-Distraction/Cheat Elimination (interference from someone not in the match)
-Brock Lesnar eliminates someone
-NXT / NXT UK entrant
TAKE TWO DRINKS
-Final two last under a minute
-RAW vs SmackDown for the final two
-Injury return (Ruby Riott, Nia Jax, Naomi, Sami Zayn, Lars Sullivan, Mickie James, etc, etc...)*
TAKE THREE DRINKS
-Final two last over seven minutes
-Someone hides under the ring
-Kofi Kingston creatively avoids elimination
-Legend Return (John Cena, Goldberg, Undertaker, Kane, Booker T, Trish Stratus, Lita, etc, etc...)*
FINISH YOUR DRINK
-All five of your wrestlers are eliminated
-Distraction/Cheat finish
-Brock Lesnar or #2 entrant wins
-Wild Card entrant (CM Punk, Cain Valasquez, Ronda Rousey, Celebrities, Commentators, etc, etc...)
*For us, Edge will count as both an injury return AND legend entrant, so he will be five drinks.

2019.11.10 21:16 DGenerationMC Rebooking WrestleMania 33

Pre-Show: The Usos(c) def. American Alpha to retain the Smackdown Tag Team Championship
Usos took Gable and Jordan's place in the inaugural tag title tournament, taking their place in the finals only to lose to Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton. When American Alpha was at 100%, they finally got a championship opportunity, taking full advantage to beat The Wyatts in late 2016. But, The Usos came firing back and won the titles inside the Elimination Chamber.
Pre-Show: Luke Harper won 25-Man Battle Royal for the André the Giant Memorial Trophy by last eliminating Sami Zayn
Since his departure from The Wyatt Family, Harper has been inching towards a match with Bray Wyatt. With this win, he is one step closer.
Pre-Show: Sasha Banks def. Nia Jax
The warpath of Nia led her to The Boss. Despite the size discrepancy, The Boss finds a way to outmaneuver the giantess to victory.
Randy Orton def. AJ Styles
Styles feels that Bray Wyatt is holding the WWE Title that still belongs to him. The Viper stepped up to be a roadblock and fulfilled his obligations in keeping The Phenomenal One from the championship by winning this dream match come true.
The Bar def. Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson(c), The New Day (with Xavier Woods) and Enzo Amore & Big Cass in a Fatal 4-Way Tag Team Match to win the Raw Tag Team Championship
Gallows and Anderson ended The New Day's historic title reign and spent the following months skirting around challengers in Enzo & Cass and The Bar. But, the champs could not handle all three teams at once as the odd couple of Cesaro and Sheamus shocked the world in winning tag gold. Relax, The Hardy Boyz would return the next night on Raw to take the titles in a open challenge.
Neville(c) def. Austin Aries to retain the WWE Cruiserweight Championship
The two biggest pariahs of the cruiserweight division bent rules and gravity to one up each other. In the end, The King reigned supreme after targeting Aries' previously injured eye.
The Miz(c) (with Maryse) def. Dolph Ziggler & Baron Corbin in a Triple Threat Match to retain the Intercontinental Championship
Miz and Ziggler's rivalry has been going since the summer, paralleling Corbin's rise up the ranks. After beating Kalisto and Apollo Crews in a handicap match at Elimination Chamber, The Lone Wolf inserted himself in the title picture, going after both men. Miz, ever the opportunist, let Ziggler and Corbin tear each other apart before cherry picking the chance to steal the pin on The Show Off, putting a definitive end to their series of championship encounters.
Bayley def. Charlotte Flair(c) to win the Raw Women's Championship
Bayley was within inches of winning the title at Fastlane involving Sasha and Nia only to have it snatched away from Flair. Speaking of Sasha and Nia, they would interfere on behalf of their respective partner, but Bayley would prevail in earning her first bit of gold on the main roster. The Boss embraced her best friend but could be visibly seen admiring the title.
Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns & Chris Jericho def. Triple H, Kevin Owens & Braun Strowman (with Stephanie McMahon) in a Six-Man Tag Team Match
Three Raw feuds became intertwined on the Road to WrestleMania. Rollins' rebellion from being The Authority's chosen one earned the ire of The Game, who sicced Strowman on him. After resolving their issues of Seth betraying The Shield, Roman backed him up, putting him at odds with The Monster Among Men. Owens and Jericho's dynamic duo fell apart when neither man could take the Universal Title from Goldberg.
When Rollins and Reigns put The Authority's hitman Samoa Joe on the shelf, KO stepped in as a Triple H guy following The Festival of Friendship. With Jericho on the path for vengeance, he aligned with Rollins and Reigns to take down The Authority for good. And that they did.
Dean Ambrose def. John Cena in a "I Quit" Match
The Cena-Ambrose issue had been bubbling since The Kingpin lost the WWE Title to AJ Styles. Tapping into his darker side, Ambrose regained the title at TLC and proceeded to batter beloved Smackdown mascot James Ellsworth. Cena would return for a big championship showdown at the Royal Rumble, where he became a 16-time World Champion. The reign did not last long as Bray Wyatt claimed the title inside the Elimination Chamber. During the match, Cena managed to eliminate Ambrose. This only stoked the flames of their rivalry, as The Kingpin went off, hitting The Champ with Dirty Deeds to allow Wyatt to pin him before eventually beating Styles to become champion.
In the weeks leading up to Mania, Cena and Ambrose attacked each other every week, even getting Shane McMahon injured in the process. Both men's significant others, Nikki Bella and Renee Young, tried to dissuade them from taking things further but to no avail. The grudge match at WM was set to be an "I Quit" Match. Bella, who had just gotten career threatening injuries in her Falls Count Anywhere Match with Natalya at Elimination Chamber, was particularly put off by Cena's tunnel vision in settling things with Ambrose in spite of the physical ramifications.
Ambrose came to Orlando ready to kill and it showed. Again tapping into his violent roots, The Kingpin tortured Cena, who would not say die. Once things reached a fever pitch, Bella ran down to ensure Cena's safety. Seeing the effect it was having on her, Cena put his pride away and gave into the pain, saying the words no one thought he'd ever say. Satisfied with what he'd done, Ambrose soullessly sauntered up the ramp while Nikki tended to John. Despite the damage done to his body, Cena managed to propose to Bella, who said yes. Dean couldn't help but to snear at this heart-warming moment but changed his tune when Renee confronted him. The couple saw the love between John and Nikki, deciding to put things in prospective and left together hand-in-hand.
Brock Lesnar (with Paul Heyman) def. Goldberg(c) to win the Universal Championship
The Beast became the first ever Universal Champion by defeating the gutsy Seth Rollins at SummerSlam. Luring Goldberg out of retirement, Brock was surprised to say the least when a spear took the title away from him in under 30 seconds. Going radio silence for months, Lesnar emerged at the Rumble to attack the champion after his title retention over Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens. While it nearly backfired, Brock had gotten Goldberg's attention. And at WM, Brock got his win back to become a two-time Universal Champ, getting the monkey off his back.
Naomi def. Alexa Bliss(c), Becky Lynch, Mickie James, Natalya & Carmella in a Six-Pack Challenge to win the Smackdown Women's Championship
Naomi's title chase led to a WM moment in her hometown.
Bray Wyatt(c) def. The Undertaker to retain the WWE Championship
Undertaker went on his Last Ride, winning the Rumble to main event Mania one last time. Ironically, he chose to challenge Bray over a dream match with Goldberg, wanting to see if Wyatt was truly The New Face of Fear after winning their first encounter two years prior. While The Deadman showed flashes of yesteryear, Bray used mind tricks during the match and his physical prowess to beat the legend down. Ultimately, there would be no happy ending for Taker's career as the champion put him down hard. Orton, who had a history of his own with Undertaker, posed alongside the WWE Champion as the PPV ended. A new age had dawned. Consider the torch taken, not passed.

2019.10.04 16:45 UnicornDick31 Rebook Wrestlemania XXV - Part 2: The Show

The show begins with the official theme song playing:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0W2kXsQ5ZYc

We see a recap of the events leading up to Mania in general, such as all the MITB competitors getting into brawls, the 4 women who will compete for the women’s title as well as some footage from Wrestlemania’s long history.

“Ladies and Gentleman, welcome to the 25th anniversary of Wrestlemania.”

We then go in depth with some more recap for the WWE Championship, World Heavyweight Championship and Intercontinental Championship matches. As well as the Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels and Jeff Hardy vs Matt Hardy.

We finally cut to the actual arena and the sold out crowd goes wild, we see the full capacity audience in all its glory. The event starts with the performance of ‘America the Beautiful’ by Nicole Scherzinger.

Once all of that has passed, we are now ready for the first bit of action of the night, and we kick things off with Mark Henry making his way down to the ring in front of the Texan crowd. He gets a warm reception while still keeping up the heel persona as usual. As the competitors for the Money in the Bank Ladder match make their way out excitement builds as this is bound to be a great match.

Mark Henry vs Christian vs John Morrison vs Evan Bourne vs Kane vs Finlay vs Shelton Benjamin vs MVP
As the bell rings, the 8 men start to brawl to the outside, leaving just two men standing in the centre of the ring, those being Kane and Mark Henry. The two behemoths go head to head and start throwing massive clubbing blows at each other. Henry gets the better of the altercation and slowly beats Kane down to his knees, he then lifts Kane and tries to go for a World Strongest Slam early on, Kane escapes and grabs Henry for the chokeslam, but then from the background we see MVP get back in the ring with a Ladder and right at the two monsters, slamming the ladder into both of them. The two monsters drop to their knees, MVP steps back a few steps and goes to do the same thing a second time, this time Kane and Henry just explode through the ladder knocking MVP to the ground instead. Finlay attacks Henry’s knee from behind with the shilelagh Kane grabs Finlay by the throat, but then Morrison springboards into the ring and hit Kane with a kick to the face. Finlay takes the chance and whacks Kane with his shillelagh. He turns his attention back to Henry who grabs it and clotheslines Finlay, breaking the shilelagh over his knee. Morrison attacks from behind, Finlay and Morrison try to beat Henry down, and then MVP joins the beatdown and they manage to bring him to the ground. They put a ladder over him and MVP and Finlay hold him down, Morrison goes to the corner and hits a Starship Pain onto the ladder, damaging Henry but he rolls to the outside clutching his back at the same time.

MVP sets up the ladder in the ring, and as he’s about to start climbing, Shelton Benjamin springboards landing right above him on the ladder. Christian also gets back in the ring and gets into an altercation with Finlay. He gets thrown into the corner and hits a Pendulum Kick to Finlay, meanwhile MVP pulls Benjamin off the ladder but he lands on his feet then hits an enziguri knocking MVP out of the ring. Benjamin climbs up the ladder and meets Christian at the top. Boht men start laying into each other with forearms. Benjamin knocks Christian down a few rungs and then reaches up to the title, but Christian throws a few forearms into the midsection of Benjamin, Benjamin ends up hitting a Sunset Flip Powerbomb off the ladder taking Christian out, Evan Bourne sees the opportunity, climbing to the top turnbuckle and hitting a Shooting Star Press to Christian. He meets Benjamin in the ring and they lock up, trying to get the upper hand on each other, but Bourne ends up hitting a Hurricanrana and sending Benjamin out of the ring. As Bourne turns back to the ladder, he bumps into Kane who Chokeslams him. Kane climbs the ladder, looking for the opportunity that comes with MITB. Kane reaches the top and looks to be moments from victory, but then Morrison quickly reaches the top again, the camera gets a great view of a massive bruise forming across his back. But regardless of the damage he still fights Kane atop the ladder. But the MVP tips the ladder over and Morrison lands on the top rope, Kane falling to the mat below. Is this MVP’s moment…

He resets the ladder in the centre of the ring, but he then sees Bourne getting to the apron and goes to attack, Bourne hits an enziguri which knocks MVP into the ladder moving it off centre, Bourne looks to be about to hit a Springboard move, but Finlay grabs his ankle, MVP takes the assistance and hits a Big Boot which knocks Bourne onto Finlay’s shoulders and he hits a Celtic Cross to Bourne onto a ladder lying outside. As MVP turns to climb the ladder again, Benjamin grabs him and throws him over the top rope at the opposite side of the ring, he does the same to Finlay as he gets back in the ring, Finlay knocks Benjamin back and then turns to MVP hitting a Celtic Cross on the apron. Benjamin then Superkicks Finlay off the apron. He climbs the ladder forgetting to recentre it, and when he stands atop the ladder realising it’s not close enough, Benjamin turns and looks down at all the competitors in a group outside the ring, besides Bourne, he turns around and hits a Somersault Senton off the ladder and onto the group (much like real life).

As the mass of competitors get back to their feet and begin to brawl, Christian rolls back in the ring, soon after followed by John Morrison. Evan Bourne has also made it back into the ring, as the three men brawl, Bourne ends up going back to the top rope looking for another Shooting Star Press, but Morrison rolls out the way, Bourne looks down and sees MVP and Finlay standing outside the ring and goes for a Shooting Star Press onto the two of them, MVP grabs a ladder and Bourne crashes hard into them and the ladder taking all 3 men out of the final part of the match. Kane and Henry brawl around to the timekeepers area where Henry picks up Kane and smashes him through the barricade, which takes those two out for the rest of it. In the ring, Christian and Morrison brawl, and then Benjamin gets involved. Benjamin and Christian knock Morrison down and then go at it with each other. After a back and forth exchange, Christian is able to hit the Killswitch and take Benjamin out, before Christian can gets up, Morrison hits a brutal knee to the face. He recentres the ladder and slowly begins the climb up the ladder, and as he reaches the top he looks to unhook the briefcase, but Christian stops him with some clubbing blows to the mid section. The two trade forearms with Christian getting the better of the altercation and pushing Morrison off the ladder and sends him crashing to the mat below. As Christian stands atop the ladder, the crowd going wild he reaches up and unhooks the briefcase, Christian is the winner of the Money in the Bank Ladder Match.

Christian celebrates the victory atop the ladder, he gets a massive pop from the crowd finally reaching that moment many believe he’s long deserved.

We are now set for the next match on the card, the Intercontinental Championship match, the former 8 time Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho, looks to make it number 9 tonight, as well as embarrass Rey Mysterio by removing the mask. He makes his way down to the ring with that cockiness he usually has. He waits in the ring as Rey Mysterio makes his entrance with his Joker inspired attire and the Intercontinental Championship around his waist.

Chris Jericho vs Rey Mysterio (c) - Intercontinental Championship
The bell rings and the two competitors lock up, Jericho takes Mysterio to the ground but he’s able to get out of it using his speed, he runs at the ropes and ducks under a clothesline then springs off the ropes and hits a crossbody, taking Jericho out. The two competitors battle back and forth for a good while with Jericho in control. He locks Mysterio in a Walls of Jericho, scream “Ask him!” at the referee, but Mysterio is able to find a way out, he hits a Hurricanrana to Jericho and sends him into the ropes, in perfect position for him to dial up the 619. Mysterio hits the Tiger Feint Kick and then springboards hitting a picture perfect Frog Splash. He covers Jericho as the referee makes the count, 1… 2… But no, Jericho kicks out. As both men get back to their feet, Mysterio goes for another Hurricanrana, but Jericho holds him up and hits a Powerbomb, he then quickly hits a Lionsault for a 2 count.

He then grabs at Mysterio’s mask and begins to pull it off his face, but Mysterio manages to stop the attempt, Mysterio gets out of the grasp of Jericho and makes it back to his feet. He lays in with some leg kicks to Jericho before being Irish whipped into the corner, but Mysterio gets the boot up when Jericho runs at him. He pushes off Jericho and flips backwards, landing on the apron, as Mysterio jumps for a Springboard, Jericho catches him with a Triangle Dropkick in mid air. Mysterio falls to the outside of the ring, Jericho struts around the ring taunting the crowd as the referee begins the count. Jericho rolls out the ring and grabs Mysterio by the mask and throws him into the barricade, and then into the ring post. He finally drops Mysterio back first on the announce table with a Back Suplex before rolling Mysterio back in and covering him. The referee counts 1… 2… and Mysterio gets the shoulder up.

Jericho is getting annoyed at this point, he grabs Mysterio’s legs and flips him into the Liontamer, driving his knee into the back of Mysterio, Mysterio looks like he’s seconds from tapping out, but with a burst of adrenaline he’s able to find a way out of it. Mysterio gets in some fast paced offence and eventually ends up in the corner, he kicks Jericho in the gut and then goes for his Bulldog, but Jericho reverses and has him in the wheelbarrow before smashing him face first into the turnbuckle, as Mysterio stumbles to his feet, Jericho grabs Mysterio by the head/mask and drives him down into a Codebreaker. When he hits the Codebreaker, Mysterio’s mask comes off and Jericho quickly gets on the cover, 1… 2… 3. Chris Jericho has won his ninth Intercontinental Championship and done exactly as he said he would by removing the mask of Rey Mysterio. Mysterio is helped to the back with a towel over his head. Jericho poses in the ring with the IC Title in one hand, and Mysterio’s mask in the other.

We cut to an interview with the new Mr. MITB, Christian, who says that he has wrestled for the better part of 15 years in and out of the WWE, and he has never been given the opportunities that he and the WWE Universe feel that he deserves. Well now he has the briefcase, he can follow in the footsteps of his former tag team partner and best friend, Edge. He walks out of frame leaving the interviewer with more questions to ask.

When we cut back to the ring Mickie James’ music plays and she makes her way down to the ring. Followed by the rest of the competitors, Beth Phoenix being the last one out.

Beth Phoenix (c) vs Mickie James vs Natalya vs Melina - Women’s Championship
The match begins and Phoenix controls the match with her strength advantage in the early goings. The match goes on for about 9 minutes with each woman getting time in the ring to control the others and hit their big moves. In the end the match has Beth Phoenix and Natalya in the middle of the ring, and Phoenix manages to hit the Glam Slam, before she can get the cover, Melina slides in the ring and rolls up Phoenix, but she kicks out. Melina then kicks Phoenix in the face and turns back, and pulls Natalya back to her feet but is caught with a Roundhouse Kick from Mickie James. James then hits Natalya with the Mickie DT, only to then be caught with the Last Call by Melina which finally gets the victory. Ladies and Gentleman your new Women’s Champion… Melina.

Once the women have made their way backstage, Kofi Kingston’s music plays and he makes his way out. He gets the crowd hyped up with his energetic entrance, he is followed by the United States Champion, CM Punk.

CM Punk (c) vs Kofi Kingston - United States Championship
When the bell rings, Kofi Kingston offers a handshake to CM Punk, which he accepts. But Punk doesn’t let go and pulls Kofi in hitting a Lariat. He quickly locks in the Anaconda Vice and wrenches back trying to make Kofi tap out. Kingston works his way out of the hold and catches Punk off guard with his quick moves. The two competitors fight back and forth between each other until Punk is being taken down by Kofi. he hits the Boom Drop and then sets up the Trouble in Paradise but Punk ducks the kick and chops his leg out from under him. He rolls to the outside and smashes his leg into the ring post 5 times before getting back on the ring apron. When Kofi staggers to his feet, Punk leaps up and hits a Springboard Clothesline. Punk then lifts Kofi onto his shoulders and drives his knee into the face of Kofi with a GTS. he covers an unconscious opponent and scores the victory.

CM Punk celebrates the retention of his United States Title in aggressive fashion, he looks down at his fallen friend turned foe. He leaves Kingston lying in the ring and walks to the back.

Next we get a recap of the Hall of Fame ceremony from the night before and come back to the arena where the red carpet is laid out atop the stage. The inductees file out one by one getting a moment for the crowd to show their appreciation. Starting with Terry Funk and Dory Funk Jr. and then Kevin Von Erich representing the Von Erichs. Next out is Koko B. Ware and Howard Finkel. Cowboy Bill Watts is next, followed by Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat. No further people make their way out and it seems the end of the segment is near, but then the famous glass break sends the crowd into a frenzy as Stone Cold Steve Austin rides out on a quad and circles the ring. He gets in the ring and does his thing, drinking a few beers, usual Austin stuff.

But once Austin rides back, it is time for the heated rivalry between two brothers, The Hardy Boyz, known for their classic TLC matches with Edge, Christian and the Dudley Boyz. It’s only fitting these two would meet under these circumstances. And to add further fuel to the fire, the one thing standing between Matt and finally reaching the top of the mountain is his brother who he took everything from. Matt Hardy makes his entrance first with major heat from the crowd, but as soon as Jeff’s music hits the crowd changes their tune and create one of the biggest pops of the night.

Jeff Hardy vs Matt Hardy - TLC Match
The match begins with both men just laying into each other with forearms, they quickly brawl to the outside where Matt drives Jeff’s ribs into the barricade. He grabs a Steel Chair and lays into the back of Jeff, beating him to the ground and just going on and on until the chair is destroyed. He picks up a Ladder and slides it into the ring and sets it up, he goes to climb it but Jeff has already started to make his way back into the ring, Matt quickly gets back on Jeff and drags him out of the ring, he goes to throw him into the ring post but Jeff reverses it and sends Matt face first into the post. The two brothers go through hell, towards the end of the match, Matt hits the Twist of Fate with a Chair wrapped around Jeff’s head, he gets in the ring and climbs the Ladder but when he reaches the top he sees Jeff rolling himself back into the ring, and climbs back down. His thirst to punish Jeff is too much and he goes to grab Jeff but Jeff pulls Matt through the ropes and onto a Ladder set up between the ring and barricade. Jeff makes sure Matt is incapacitated and then begins climbing the ladder, but then he looks down at Matt again and realises he is in perfect position for deja vu. Back at Mania 23, Matt convince Jeff to take the ultimate sacrifice against Edge by jumping off the Ladder and taking Edge out. He looks up at the contract in his reach, then back down at Matt. he climbs up a few more rungs and turns, he does his taunt and then leaps off the Ladder. When he leaps, Matt rolls off the Ladder and Jeff crashes through the ladder. Matt slowly crawls his way back into the ring and slowly climbs up the ladder, when he’s at the top he looks down at Jeff while laughing smugly before grabbing the contract and pulling it down.

Jeff Hardy is stretchered out of the arena, and Matt Hardy celebrates defeating his own brother after a hellish bout, he is ready for a World Heavyweight Championship match at Backlash, but will he be going up against his former rival in Edge, or will he step in the ring with the face of WWE, John Cena?

After that match, we get an interview with the new Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho. He says that he accomplished everything he promised and now he will further prove why he is the greatest Intercontinental Champion of all time.

Back to the ring and it is time for the history making bout between The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels.

The Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels
As much as I’d love to, I can’t even attempt to rebook this match, it would just be an insult to the match we had, this needs to stay exactly how it was in real life.

After that match we see a recap of the events so far to give a couple minutes of a break before the next match.

John Cena makes his entrance, with the dopplegangers just as he actually did, after he stands in the ring waiting, Edge makes his way down and the two long time rivals are once again standing across from one another and ready for a fight.

Edge (c) vs John Cena - World Heavyweight Championship
Edge and Cena lock up as the bell rings and they go back and forth for the better part of 15 minutes when the referee gets knocked out, at this point Christian makes his way down to the ring and the commentators wonder what his intentions are, obviously now being the Money in the Bank winner. Christian gets up on the apron and Edge is looking at him telling him to get out of here, but then Cena goes to attack Edge and ends up pushing Edge into Christian, Edge is driven headfirst into the briefcase that Christian was holding up, Edge falls back barely conscious, turning into an Attitude Adjustment, Cena gets the victory off that and then Christian is trying to make sure Edge is all good, but unfortunately Edge isn’t forgiving at all, Cena celebrates and Christian stands in the ring looking down at his briefcase, Edge sits telling Christian to give him the case to make it up to him. Cena turns and sees Christian, knowing what that briefcase can bring, he gets out of dodge.

Commentary question what is going through Christian’s head and whether he is ready for the responsibility of being World Champion considering he had a perfect opportunity right in front of him but froze. Edge looks disappointed and screams at Christian asking what he is doing, Edge rolls out the ring and leaves Christian alone in the ring.

As the show comes down to the wire and we reach the final match, we get an interview with Edge immediately as he makes his way to the back. He says that he is pissed off but he just rambles about how that shouldn’t have happened and how unfair it was before walking away. The interviewer throws the feed back to ringside for the main event to get underway.

Batista makes his way out first, getting a big pop from the crowd, he is followed by Randy Orton and then finally Triple H.

Triple H (c) vs Batista vs Randy Orton - WWE Championship
The bell rings and Orton realises he’s outnumbered for once as Trips and Batista look to be teaming up to take him out. Orton rolls out the ring and waits, Batista and HHH go at it in the ring. After they begin to do damage on each other and Orton sees the opportunity he strikes, attacking both men. Eventually after the match swings in favour of all three men along the way, Batista and Triple H are beating down Orton when the rest of Legacy make their way out and attack. Once Orton gets back to his feet, he hits HHH with an RKO. he then turns the beatdown on Batista into a 3 on 1 beating. Cody and DiBiase drag Batista over to the ring post and tape his legs around the post so he get up. Orton makes sure Batista is watching as Orton hits another RKO on Triple H, but he isn’t done. He looks at Batista as he backs into the corner and hypes himself up before Punting HHH skull, he covers HHH while making direct eye contact with Batista. 1… 2… 3… Randy Orton is the new WWE Champion, he poses with the title and the rest of Legacy by his side as the ringside doctors are tending to Triple H. HHH is stretchered out with a kayfabe injury and Wrestlemania goes off air with Batista still unable to move while Orton stands in the centre of the ring with the title held high.

Hope you all enjoyed how myself and u/Jarfolomew decided we'd make Wrestlemania XXV better, and I'm sure our opponents will release some great stuff, good luck to them all, I look forward to it.

Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Christian vs. Kane vs. Mark Henry vs. Evan Bourne vs. John Morrison vs. MVP vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Finlay
All 8 want to be world champion and see MITB as their ticket.
Women's Championship Fatal 4-Way Match: Beth Phoenix (c) vs. Melina vs. Mickie James vs. Natalya
Beth is on her way to becoming the most dominant champion in history. She's beaten everyone at this point. But she's given the task to defend against multiple challengers at WrestleMania. Melina, Natalya snd Mickie James.
United States Championship: CM Punk (c) vs. Kofi Kingston
CM Punk beats MVP in an interpromotional match and brings the US title to Raw. Kofi wins a number one contenders match against William Regal to get a match at WrestleMania. Punk shows a meaner side in the build up to Mania.
Intercontinental Championship: Rey Mysterio (c) vs. Chris Jericho
Rey Mysterio defeats JBL in 25 seconds on Raw before No Way Out to win the title. Mysterio eliminates Jericho in the Elimination Chamber match. Jericho then targets Mysterio, blaming him for not being the World Heavyweight Champion. Jericho promises to not only take the IC Championship, but also take away Mysterio's pride by unmasking him.
#1 Contenders TLC Match: Jeff Hardy vs. Matt Hardy
This build up is mostly the same. Matt costs his brother the WWE Championship at Royal Rumble because he's a jealous scumbag. He can't accept the fact that he's struggled while Jeff's career and popularity has skyrocketed to the top. Jeff wants to get back at his brother. Teddy Long decides to book the two brothers against each other in a TLC match at WrestleMania. And as a bonus, the winner will get a World Heavyweight Title match at Backlash.
The Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels
Arguably, the greatest match in WWE history. Possibly greatest ever. No way could my partner and I change this. The build is slightly different but mostly the same. Only difference is Shawn doesn't win any matches to get this, he simply calls out The Undertaker, and Taker accepts. Shawn is determined to make history, to make the streak rest... in... peace.
World Heavyweight Championship: Edge (c) vs. John Cena
Edge politics his way into the Raw Chamber after losing in the SmackDown one earlier that night. He takes out Kofi before the match and takes his spot. Kofi attacks Edge the night after and Vickie gives Kofi a title match later that night. Edge wins, but is given an AA by Cena after the match. Cena invokes his rematch clause against Edge for WrestleMania. Vickie gets Big Show involved. But Cena ain't having that. Cena defeats Big Show in a match on Raw to make sure the match at Mania stays one on one. Edge attacks Cena after it though and gives Cena a con-chairto. There's rumors that Cena will be working (kayfabe) concussed at WrestleMania.
WWE Championship: Triple H (c) vs. Batista vs. Randy Orton
Batista wins the Royal Rumble match, but is taken out by Randy Orton with a punt kick, who was the man Batista last eliminated. Vince McMahon tries to punish Orton for taking out the Rumble winner, but is taken down with a Punt. Then Shane McMahon comes into it, and he's also put down with a Punt. Meanwhile, everyone's wondering what's going to happen if Batista can't compete at WrestleMania. Orton RKOs Stephanie the night after HHH wins the WWE at No Way Out. Vince returns one night, and tries to fire Orton, but HHH demands that he gives him Orton at Mania. HHH wants to make Orton pay for what he's done. But Batista comes back the one night and attacks Randy Orton during a one on one match against John Cena. Batista says that he's still the Royal Rumble winner and he wants to fight for the WWE title at WrestleMania. He says he's going to win the WWE Championship and make Orton suffer while he does it. So the stage is now set for an epic Triple Threat Match.

2019.09.07 01:37 vectorzeros WWE Halloween Havoc 2019. (Smackdown Brand PPV) (TEW 2016)

Took a while for me to get to this one to post it for my friend. We are two weeks out from Survivor Series so figured had better get this up before he and I get to the next PPV. So here goes.
WWE's Halloween Havoc was held in front of 35,000 Fans!
Pre-Show
Crusierweight Title Match: (c)Rey Mysterio vs Drew Gulak: Gulak was doing everything in his power to get a title shot against Nese but the ruling was that if Nese was champion, Gulak couldn't get another shot. Mysterio winning the title was nice for Gulak as now he finally gets the title shot he thinks he deserves. In the end however, Gulak is unable to capture the title and is pinned by Mysterio who retains his title. Winner and STILL Crusierweight Champion: Rey Mysterio!(B)
Elias and Mickie James have a little battle of the bands. After Elias was poking fun at James' return. She took offence and challenged him to this battle. The two both sing their songs, but before a winner can be announced Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan attack her. (D+)
Charly is backstage with Ricochet, they discuss his Title defense against The Vega Family newest member. Kofi Kingston. Ricochet is confident as he has defended his title against all comers and states that Kingston will be no different. (C)
Randy Orton vs Jeff Hardy: Decent match between these two. No big surprises here, Orton goes over clean with the RKO! (B-)
Winner: Randy Orton!: Orton celebrates his win for a moment before getting on the mic and talking about since Bischoff has taken over it seems like his opportunities have dried up. Eric Bischoff comes out and gives him a match against Roman Reigns this coming Smackdown! (B)
Liv Morgan is backstage with Sarah Logan, ripping on Mickie James. But says she has to deal with another of these idiot girls. Candice LeRae next. (C)
Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae vs Bobby Lashey and Liv Morgan: Mixed tag match, decent enough. Comes to an end when LeRae taps out Morgan for the victory! (C-)

Smackdown Tag Team Titles: (c)Cesaro and Rezar(The Vega Family) vs EC3 and Robert Roode(The Glorious 1%) vs Big E and Xaiver Woods(The New Day): In a pretty good tag team Triple Threat all three teams brought it. The Glorious 1% looking great during the match but sadly for them they were not involved in the finish. That came when Cesaro pins Xaiver Woods after Rezar hit him with an illegal object for the dirty pin, but a title defense. (B-)
Winners and STILL Smackdown Tag Team Champions: The Vega Family!: Cesaro and Rezar only get a few moments to celebrate before an angry Big E clotheslines them both over the top rope. Getting a small measure of revenge. (B-)
Charly catches up to Big E and Xaiver Wood backstage. Both are not looking very happy and cut a very serious promo. (C)
US Title Match: (c)Ricochet vs Kofi Kingston: With these two involved there was no way it wasn't going to be a good match. Ricochet pulls out his high flying arsenal, but Kingston responds with his own. Able to cut Ricochet off numerous times. Ricochet goes for his reverse 450 but Kingston is out of the way. Ricochet is barely able to recover and not crash and burn, but as he does Kingston hits Trouble in Paradise and scores the pinfall victory to claim the US Title! (B)
Winner and NEW US Champion: Kofi Kingston!: Kingston grabs his new title and has only a moment or two to celebrate before Big E and Woods show up and run him off. The chase runs through the backstage area. Kingston only escaping when he gets into a limo with the Vega Family and drives off leaving Woods and Big E looking pissed. (B-)
A Video Recap showing the History between John Cena and The Fiend plays. Showing how The Fiend defeated Cena at SummerSlam and Cena disappeared only to return to promise to defeat this monster. The Match itself if a Firefly Funhouse Match. (B-)
Firefly Funhouse Match: The Fiend vs John Cena: A great brawling street fight type match between these two. As the Match is basically a No Holds Barred with some of the spooky effects The Fiend uses involved as well. It looks like the Fiend has Cena's number again, when out of nowhere, Cena gets a burst of energy and pins The Fiend after Three Attitude Adjustments! (B)
Winner: John Cena!!!: Cena celebrates defeating The Fiend, no one thought he could. Even Cena himself. But as he makes his way up the ramp to the back he is only met by boos from the crowd. (B-)
Last Man Standing Match: Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn: Best match of the night, but when Owens and Zayn are involved that is barely a surprise. Many close calls for either man not being able to answer the 10 count. But it finally all comes to an end after Owens hits a big Pop-Up Power-Bomb to put Zayn down the 10 count! (B+)
Winner: Kevin Owens!: Owens celebrates his victory over Zayn and then makes his way to the back. (B-)
Charly is backstage with Sonya Deville who is getting ready for her match with Rousey tonight. She talks about how a few weeks ago on Smackdown her and Mandy Rose broke Rousey's arm. So that will make winning the title tonight so easy. And Fire and Desire will rule the Smackdown Women's Division! (D+)
Deville and Rose go to the ring. Waiting there as Ronda Rousey makes her way out, cast still on her arm. Rousey gets in the ring and goes face to face with Deville. Deville's smile of confidence disappears when Rousey rips her cast off to revel that she is no injured at all. (C+)
Smackdown Women's Title: (c)Ronda Rousey vs Sonya Deville: Rousey makes rather short work on Deville, who puts up a bit more of a fight than expect, but still falls victim to Rousey's arm-bar! (C+)
Winner and STILL Smackdown Women's Champion: Ronda Rousey!: Rousey celebrates her win, and just for kicks gets a hold of Mandy Rose and taps her out to an arm-bar as well. (B-)
Roman Reigns is talking to Jason Jordan backstage. Jordan is rather timid about having to fight his Dad Kurt Angle, but also understands that he and Roman need to win tonight to put Lesnar's and Angle's cockyness to rest. The two shake hands and head out to battle. (B)
Main Event: Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle vs Roman Reigns and Jason Jordan: Good Main Event for the four involved. Jordan booked to look strong against both Lesnar and Angle. Angle cheats every chance he gets to gain advantage. Lesnar just uses pure Brutal Power to control both Jordan and Reigns at points. Reigns and Jordan mount a big comeback and it seems for a moment that Jordan is going to be able to get a pin on Lesnar, John Cena comes out and distracts Jordan long enough that Lesnar is able to recover and hit the F-5 on Jordan and score the pinfall for Lesnar and Angle! (B)
Winners: Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle!: The Two take a moment to celebrate their win as Cena gets into the ring and Charly comes in and asks him to explain his actions. Cena explains his actions in helping Lesnar and Angle winning their match tonight. During this Lesnar and Angle lay out Reigns so he is unable to do anything.
Cena says the fans have been hustling him for years, showing him no respect at all. It never really occurred to him until he took time off after his loss at SummerSlam how much the fans had change. And not for the better. They cheer for a guy in a creepy mask, who kidnapped The Miz's child by the way. How could they cheer someone who did things like that? They are sick people, and he is sick of representing that trash. He is now becoming the CenaNation with Lesnar and Angle, andis loyal to this group. Tells the fans that they wanted the Attitude era back, but the Attitude Era SUCKED! He is John Cena! And he is bringing back RUTHLESS AGRESSION!
He pushes Charly away and then grabs Jason Jordan laying him out with and AA, which he then states is now called the Ruthless Aggression. He does the U Can't See Me Hand Gesture. But then stops. Walking back over to Charly and saying Now You Do See Me!
Cena then walks over to Angle and Lesnar and the three shake hands. Making their way up the ramp and the closing shot of the show is The CenaNation(John Cena, Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle) Standing Tall! (A)
Show Ends: Final Rating: B!
So ends Halloween Havoc with Cena joining the duo of Lesnar and Angle. Will these three big egos be able to get along? Kofi Kingston picked up the US Title, good win for The Vega Family, and for Kingston as well after Dropping the WWE Title to Roman Reigns back at King of the Ring earlier this year.
The Next PPV in my friend and I save is Survivor Series, it will have 3 Raw vs Smackdown Matches. And some other surprises.
Please feel free to leave a question or comment down below. And as always, thank you for reading!
