WWE WrestleMania XXXI: (3/29/2015)- Santa Clara, CA

PRE-SHOW:
JACK SWAGGER, R-TRUTH, & KANE vs. MARK HENRY, BIG E. LANGSTON, & KALISTO-
Kane, Swagger, & Truth win clean Truth pins Kalisto after his finisher.

We get a bunch of promos to build things up.

MAIN SHOW:
WWE WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: International Airstrike 2.0(c) vs. The Usos-
The Usos win clean to finally get the monkey off their backs, both defeating International Airstrike and finally winning the WWE World Tag Team Titles. The announcers put this over as a big “WrestleMania Moment,” the likes of which we will certainly see more of all night long. Total time should be about twenty minutes.

BIG SHOW vs. WADE BARRETT-
Wade wins clean, kicking out of a WMD and managing to hit Big Show with the Barrett Barrage to put him down for the win, proving that Wade is the best striker in the WWE. Total time should be about thirteen minutes.

Renee Young interviews Roman Reigns. She asks him if he is having any WrestleMania butterflies. Roman doesn’t answer.

LAST MAN STANDING MATCH: Sheamus vs. Cody Rhodes-
Sheamus is introduced first. As he comes down the ramp Cody tries to jump him from behind like he did to start off their Hell in a Cell match, but Sheamus is ready for it this time, and turns around to meet Cody with a big clothesline. They go on to have a brutal Last Man Standing match. Sheamus works over Cody’s head, trying to knock him out with either weapons or the Brogue Kick. Cody works over Sheamus’ leg to prevent him from getting back up and also to weaken the Brogue Kick. The finish comes when Sheamus lines Cody up for a Brogue Kick in the corner but Cody catches the foot up on his shoulder, presses down on Sheamus’ shin and drops down to his knees, hurting Sheamus’ leg. Cody then rolls out of the ring and pulls the leg around the ringpost. He then bashes the leg with a chair a bunch of times before pulling Sheamus out of the ring. He puts the chair around Sheamus’ leg, climbs all the way to the top rope and jumps down all the way down to the floor, landing on the chair and crushing Sheamus’ leg in a monstrous Pillmanizer. Sheamus valiantly tries to make it back to his feet, but as soon as he tries to put any weight on the Pillmanized leg, he collapses in a cry of pain. Cody wins the match, and later in the show we receive a medical update letting us know that Sheamus has suffered a broken leg. Total time for the match should be about twenty-five minutes.

We get a big backstage promo with Ric and Ashley Flair building up tonight’s Divas Title match.

DEAN AMBROSE MUST CHOOSE A SIDE: Seth Rollins (& Dean Ambrose) vs. Bray Wyatt & Luke Harper (& Dean Ambrose?) (w/Brodus Clay & Ryback)-
Dean predictably spends the first chunk of the match, standing at the bottom of the ramp, completely paralyzed by his inability to choose between his friend and his “savior.” This leaves Seth to fight a handicap match, which he does valiantly, but eventually the numbers game catches up to him and the Wyatts start to beat him down. Seth appeals to Dean for help, while Bray preaches to Dean about how Seth is weak while Bray says he has been the one who has made Dean strong.
Seth gets beaten down by Bray for a few minutes. Bray then sets up for the Monster Tamer, but before hitting the move, he shouts “Don’t you see, Seth? He belongs to ME! They will ALL belong to me!” Bray goes for the Monster Tamer, but that brief pause gave Seth the time to recover enough to counter the move.
Seth dives over towards his corner while Dean sprints to the ring and leaps up onto the apron and sticks his arm out to accept Seth’s tag. Dean runs wild on the Wyatts and pins Harper with Dirty Deeds to get the win. Seth and Dean celebrate happily together. Total time should be about fourteen minutes.

JOHN CENA vs. DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman)-
Ziggler wins clean in the middle of the ring with the sleeper hold. JBL notes that after starting his WrestleMania career at an amazing 6-1, “Big Match John” has now lost at five straight WrestleManias. Total match time should be about five minutes.

We get a quick backstage segment with Nattie and Tyson wishing each other good luck in their matches because Tyson’s match is right before Nattie’s so she will need to be warming up during his match and he will probably be recovering during her match. Bret Hart shows up to wish Tyson good luck, too.

FATAL FOUR-WAY MATCH FOR THE WWE INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE: Roman Reigns(c) vs. Tyson Kidd vs. The Miz vs. Kofi Kingston-
Roman wins clean to retain the title, pinning Kofi after a spear. Total time should be fifteen minutes.

WWE DIVAS TITLE MATCH: Natalya Neidhart(c) (w/Bret Hart) vs. Ashley Flair (w/Ric Flair)-
Ashley wins completely cleanly in the middle of the ring with the figure eight. Nattie shakes her hand afterward and hands her the belt. Flair straps the belt on his daughter. Total time should be about twenty minutes.

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH: Randy Orton(c) vs. Daniel Bryan (w/AJ Bryan)-
Orton works over Dragon’s head, Dragon works over Orton’s arm. The finish comes when Dragon lays in several extremely vicious kicks to Orton’s arm and Orton immediately rolls to the outside, clutching his arm. He yells at the ref to back Dragon up, then calls for the ringside doctor. Once the doctor gets to him, Orton slides back into the ring, and with the referee still holding Dragon back (the ref is placed between them but facing Dragon so he doesn’t see that Orton is coming), Orton nails Dragon with a cheapshot and then drills him with an RKO, showing that he was feigning the injury. Dragon kicks out of the pin, but Orton takes over the match and wins soon thereafter when Bryan passes out in the Viper’s Bite. The announcers put over Dragon’s heart and courage for not submitting and chastise Orton for faking an injury and preying on Bryan’s sense of mercy and sportsmanship. Total time should be about twenty-five minutes.

STING vs. THE UNDERTAKER-
Taker wins clean. Total time should be about thirty minutes.

WWE TITLE MATCH: Brock Lesnar(c) (w/Paul Heyman) vs. Antonio Cesaro-
Cesaro wins clean to become the new WWE Champion. Total time of about forty minutes.

Tonight’s Raw is hyped up as one full of celebration, as we will have celebrations for all of our new champions. One of those new champions, WWE Champion Cesaro, will be in action in our main event against John Cena!
Also on Raw, there will be a HUGE 19-person battle royale, with the last two men standing getting a shot at the WWE World Tag Team Titles!


Raw: (3/30/2015)- San Jose, CA

Raw opens with World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton coming out to the ring. He says that other people are getting celebrations tonight but not him because he isn’t some weak-minded fool who needs a “celebration” to stroke to his fragile ego. Cody Rhodes comes out and suggests that the reason Randy isn’t getting a celebration is because he isn’t the rightful champion until has beaten Cody in a rematch, fair and square. Cody says that now that he has taken Sheamus out by breaking his leg last night, Sheamus won’t be able to cost him the title, and thus he thinks he should get a title shot right here, right now.
Steph comes out and yells at both of them. She says that Cody complaining that someone didn’t “play fair” in a title match is rich, and that Sheamus only interfered in Cody’s rematch with Orton to stop Cody from using a chair. She also lets Orton know that he is on thin ice after that fake-injury crap he pulled at WrestleMania. She suggests that Cody go to the back and prepare for his match, but as for Orton, his match will take place right when we return from this commercial…

RANDY ORTON vs. ADRIAN NEVILLE (w/Justin Gabriel)-
Orton wins clean in twenty minutes. We want a crazy opener to tear the house down and put the notorious post-Mania Raw crowd in a good mood.

Renee Young tries to interview Daniel Bryan about Randy Orton’s shady tactics last night at WrestleMania and whether Bryan feels like that cost him the World Heavyweight Title. Bryan gives a very evasive answer and just says that he is totally focused on his match with Seth Rollins later tonight.

PAIGE vs. NAOMI (w/the Brain Trust)-
Naomi wins clean in ten minutes


John Cena cuts a backstage promo. He congratulates Dolph Ziggler on his victory last night at WrestleMania, then says that he has put that loss behind him and is now looking towards the future… and that future starts later tonight against the new WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro.

The Usos come out for their celebration. They both cut speeches about how much it means to them to win the tag titles together and they’ve been dreaming of it their whole lives, etc. etc. Then Rikishi comes out and tells them how proud he is of them, etc. etc. Then Steph comes out and says that she has a surprise for all three of them. She has booked all three of them to compete tomorrow night on Main Event in a six man tag team match.

Renee Young is interviewing Mark Henry & Big E. Langston. She asks them for thoughts on their matches tonight: Mark will be facing IC Champion Roman Reigns while Big E. will be part of the tag team title shot battle royale.
Mark cuts a standard promo building up the IC Title and how much he wants to win it and how beating Roman will earn him a title shot. Big E. says that getting a tag title shot won’t be the same without Mark as his partner. Mark tells his protégé that he should never pass up a title opportunity, because they don’t come very often.

DEAN AMBROSE (w/Seth Rollins) vs. JUSTIN GABRIEL (w/Adrian Neville)-
Dean wins clean in twelve minutes. After the match, Bray Wyatt comes out onto the stage. He tells Dean he will give him one last chance to come back to the Wyatt Family. Dean rejects him, so Bray vows to make Dean’s like a living hell.

Next we get the celebration for new WWE Divas Champion Ashley Flair. She and Ric do their thing. Nattie comes out and shows respect to the new champion, saying that whatever Nattie thinks about Charlotte’s lack of respect outside of the ring, Charlotte has proven herself worthy of respect inside of the ring.

ROMAN REIGNS vs. MARK HENRY (w/Big E. Langston)-
Roman wins clean with the spear.

Now we get the celebration for new WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro, who cleanly defeated BROCK LESNAR last night at WrestleMania. After Cesaro gives his speech, Heyman and Ziggler come out and applaud him. Then Brock Lesnar comes out, shakes Cesaro’s hand, and tells Cesaro to keep the belt warm for him, because he’ll be coming back for it soon.
Brock leaves, but Heyman and Dolph stay. Cesaro looks puzzled. Heyman cuts a promo about how proud he is of Cesaro and how Cesaro is the future and Cesaro is a Paul Heyman Guy.

SETH ROLLINS (w/Dean Ambrose) vs. DANIEL BRYAN (w/AJ Bryan)-
Bryan wins clean in twenty-five minutes.

BATTLE ROYALE IN WHICH THE LAST TWO MEN STANDING WILL GET A FUTURE SHOT AT THE WWE WORLD TAG TEAM TITLES: Big Show vs. Miz vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Epico Colon vs. Primo Colon vs. David Otunga vs. Damien Sandow vs. Kalisto vs. Heath Slater vs. R-Truth vs. Jack Swagger vs. Big E. Langston vs. Kane vs. Zack Ryder vs. Tyson Kidd vs. Michael McGillicutty vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Wade Barrett vs. Dolph Ziggler-
The match starts off with people pairing off as usual. Kane, Truth, and Swagger are all very aggressive and the three of them start to dominate the match, eliminating Slater, Ryder, Sandow, Otunga, and the Colons. We get the obligatory Kane vs. Big Show face-off, and they start to slug it out. They are even for a while until Truth and Swagger rush Show from behind. They all try to dump Big Show but Kofi makes the save. Kofi then gets beaten down until some others come over and everyone tries to gang up on Kane, Truth, and Swagger. Kane Truth and Swagger do ROAR spot and start fighting back, sending bodies flying around the ring left and right.
Meanwhile, Cody tries to eliminate Kalisto, but Kalisto manages to headscissors him from the apron, flipping Cody out but not getting eliminated himself. Swagger then goes after Kalisto and tries to eliminate him but Kalisto stops it, fights back, and take Swagger over the top with a big clothesline. Michael McGillicutty does similarly to R-Truth, while Big E. ducks a clothesline from Kane and low-bridges him over the top rope and down to the floor.
Kane, Swagger, and Truth regroup on the floor, then run back in and attack the guys who eliminated them. They toss them all over the top rope and beat them down. They focus most of their attention on Big E., and by the time security and Mark Henry show up to pull them off, Big E. has been injured.
Back in the ring, the remaining competitors are Ziggler, Barrett, Kofi, Big Show, Tyson Kidd, and Miz. Kofi and Big Show work together to dominate the match and the announcers comment on how nice it would be for these two great friends to earn a tag title shot together. The others realize that they need to work together to eliminate Big Show and they do.
These five go for a while until Tyson eliminates Ziggler, and then the final four pair off: Miz vs. Kofi and Barrett vs. Tyson. They jostle around for a while until, at roughly the same time, Miz eliminates Kofi and Tyson eliminates Barrett. Miz and Tyson then turn around and realize that they will now be teaming together and don’t seem quite so thrilled about it.

JOHN CENA vs. ANTONIO CESARO-
They have a great back-and forth match for about twenty minutes before Cena locks in the STFU. Heyman and Ziggler run down to the ring. As Heyman distracts the ref, Cesaro starts to power out of the move on his own, breaking Cena’s grasp. Meanwhile, with the ref occupied with Heyman, Dolph runs in and stomps on Cena to break up the submission. As Cena starts to get up, Dolph throws a superkick, but Cena catches the leg, spins Dolph around, and hits the protobomb. Dolph rolls out of the ring and Cena and Cesaro go for another three or four minutes uninterrupted by interference until Cesaro hits the Neutralizer and pins Cena.


WWE Main Event: (3/31/2015)- San Jose, CA
NATALYA NEIDHART (w/Tyson Kidd) vs. AJ BRYAN (w/Daniel Bryan)-
Nattie wins clean in fifteen minutes.

The Wyatts do a long but vicious squash. After the match, Bray cuts a promo telling Dean Ambrose that this is just a sample of what awaits him.

RIKISHI & THE USOS vs. ZACK RYDER, BULL DEMPSEY, & “MR. LA KINGS” (Bo Dallas under a mask)-
Rikishi and the Usos win, with “Mr. LA Kings” obviously taking the loss (and a stinkface) here in San Jose. The point of this match is to be goofy fun.

WWE.com reports that Big E. Langston was injured by the attack by Kane, Truth and Swagger on Raw and will be out for a few weeks. Big E.’s mentor, Mark Henry, has been signed to team with another man the trio attacked, Michael McGillicutty to face Kane and Truth on Smackdown. On Superstars, the third man who has attacked, Kalisto, will face the third member of the anger-fueled trio, Jack Swagger.
The main event of Smackdown will feature Seth Rollins taking on Cody Rhodes, while the semi-main event will be a Fatal Four-Way match pitting Tyson Kidd against Wade Barrett against Zack Ryder against WWE United States Champion Dean Ambrose. In addition to this, we will also see two of our newly-crowned champions, WWE Divas Champion Ashley Flair and WWE World Tag Team Champions The Usos in action for the first time since winning their titles earlier this past Sunday at WrestleMania. The Usos will face Brain Trust while Ashley will face Emma.


Smackdown: (4/2/2015)- Fresno, CA
DANIEL BRYAN (w/AJ Bryan) vs. KOFI KINGSTON (w/Big Show)-
Dragon wins clean in nine minutes, making Kofi tap to the Yes Lock.

Renee Young is interviewing Nattie Neidhart and Tyson Kidd. She tells Nattie that a lot of people were surprised that she showed so much respect to Ashley Flair during her celebration on Raw, considering that Nattie had been very vocal about how disrespectful Ashley has been. Nattie says that no matter how much she doesn’t like Ashley’s attitude, there is no denying that Ashley was the better woman at WrestleMania, and Nattie was there to show respect to her in-ring ability. She also hopes that maybe if she sets a good example, Ashley will catch on.
Renee then asks Tyson for his thoughts on winning the tag team title shot battle royale on Raw with The Miz of all people. Tyson says that he’ll give it his all when he and the Miz get their tag title shot, but right now, he is focused on his big four-way match tonight.

RANDY ORTON vs. ROMAN REIGNS vs. EPICO COLON (w/Primo Colon)-
The finish comes when Roman spears Epico, but Orton breaks the pin up via running punt to Roman’s head. Roman rolls out of the ring while Orton steals the pins on Epico. Roman is groggy and is helped to the back by medical staff.

John Cena cuts a backstage promo saying “I have no problem admitting when I’ve lost because my opponent was the better man on that night- just check out a replay of this week’s Raw and you’ll see that quite clearly. But what you’ll also see is Dolph Ziggler interfering my match with Cesaro, and when I lose because someone sticks their nose in my business... that is something I have a problem with. So Dolph, if you want to keep this going, that’s on you.”

MARK HENRY & MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY vs. KANE & R-TRUTH (w/Jack Swagger)-
Kane pins McGillicutty clean in six minutes with a chokeslam.

AJ Bryan cuts a backstage promo. She says that Randy Orton’s tactics at WrestleMania where he feigned an injury to get Bryan to back off, then used the referee as a screen were absolute BS and everybody knows it. She knows that in his heart, her husband feels this way, too, but Daniel is just too nice to say it.

Byron Saxton interviews The Miz. He asks Miz for this thoughts on winning the tag team title shot battle royale with Tyson Kidd whom he has never teamed with before and- to be frank- they don’t seem like the type of guys who would get along. Miz insists that as long as Tyson listens to him, they’ll be WWE World Tag Team Champions in no time.

THE USOS vs. THE BRAIN TRUST (w/Naomi)-
Usos win clean in seven minutes, pinning Otunga.
After the match, International Airstrike 2.0 come out. They say that they were very respectful of the Usos and didn’t say anything during their championship celebration on Raw or their match teaming with their father on Main Event, but they need the Usos the prove that they really are the better team; that their win wasn’t just a fluke. They want to cash-in their rematch, and they want to do next week on Raw. The Usos accept the challenge.

ASHLEY FLAIR vs. EMMA-
Ashley wins clean in five minutes with Bow to the Queen. As Ashley makes her way backstage, Renee Young gets a reaction interview from her. She asks Ashley to comment on Nattie’s comments about her from earlier tonight. Ashley says she was pleasantly surprised by what Nattie said and that it was about damn time that Nattie started showing her the proper respect.

ANTONIO CESARO vs. HEATH SLATER-
Cesaro squashes Slater. After the match, Paul Heyman and Dolph Ziggler come out, clapping for Cesaro. They get into the ring and Paul E. grabs a mic. He introduces himself as the manager of Dolph Ziggler, “The Beast” Brock Lesnar, and the WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro, then starts cutting a promo talking all about how negotiations for Brock’s rematch against Cesaro are going very well. Dolph then starts to brag about how the Paul Heyman guys defeated John Cena on two consecutive days- himself on the Grandest Stage of Them All- WRESTLEMANIA- and Cesaro the next night on Raw.
Cesaro snatches the mic from Dolph and says “Look… about that: I appreciate what you thought you were doing for me… but please don’t. I beat Brock Lesnar one-on-one at WrestleMania for the WWE Title. I don’t need any help to beat anyone.

NATALYA NEIDHART & CAMERON vs. BRIE BELLA & PAIGE-
Tyson Kidd is not at ringside because he is preparing for his match, which is next. Nattie does down with some sort of leg sprain early on, forcing Cameron to wrestle on her own. Cameron is quickly beaten by Paige with the Rampage. Medical personnel help Nattie to the back.

TYSON KIDD vs. DEAN AMBROSE vs. WADE BARRETT vs. ZACK RYDER-
Seth Rollins is not at ringside with Dean because he is preparing for his match against Cody Rhodes.
They go for about seven or eight minutes before we get a spot where Tyson Kidd eats a Barrett Barrage on the outside and is knocked out. Soon thereafter we get a ref bump and the Wyatt Family runs down to the ring and attacks Dean. Ryder tries to help Dean, but he gets beaten down, too. Barrett, on the other hand, bails. The Wyatts leave, and when Tyson Kidd comes to, he sees Barrett missing, Ryder down in the ring, and Ambrose stumbling to his feet. Kidd, not realizing what has happened, takes advantage of the situation he finds himself in, climbing to the top rope and coming off with a blockbuster, then pinning US Champion Dean Ambrose.

Kalisto cuts a promo to hype up his match tomorrow night on Superstars against Jack Swagger.

SETH ROLLINS vs. CODY RHODES-
Cody wins clean in fifteen minutes

We get an injury report that Roman Reigns is suffering from concussion-like symptoms after taking Randy’s punt, and is being held out of action as a precautionary measure. Natalya Neidhart, on the other hand, suffered only a minor sprain and should be able to return to action as early as Monday’s Raw.


Superstars: (4/3/2015)
Our promos and video packages revolve around the Swagger-Kalisto feud that started back in December when Swagger blamed Kalisto for losing their match in the tag team title #1 contendership tournament. Swagger and Kane and Truth talk about how Swagger is now fueled by his anger and the benefits of this. Big Show cuts a promo saying that giving in to your anger like Swagger has done is very dangerous and uses his own story in the winter of 2013-2014 as an example. Kalisto talks about how he wants to end this with Swagger once and for all and get revenge on him for injuring him over the winter.

KALISTO vs. JACK SWAGGER (w/R-Truth & Kane)-
Kalisto wins clean in eighteen minutes with the Salida del Sol.

WWE.com announces that Raw’s main event will be the International Airstrike 2.0 getting their contractually obligated rematch against the Usos for the WWE World Tag Team Titles. Also on tonight’s show Kofi Kingston and the Big Show will take on Paul Heyman’s clients Dolph Ziggler and the WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro.
In other championship-related news, announced for this week’s Main Event is Tyson Kidd challenging Dean Ambrose for US Title as a result of pinning Dean in a four-way match on Smackdown. In that four way, Ambrose was attacked by the Wyatt Family, and one of Ambrose’s other opponents in that match, Zack Ryder, came to his aid, and was on the receiving end of the Wyatt Family’s wrath for his act of bravery. Tonight on Raw, Zack Ryder gets a chance for revenge when he teams up with Dean Ambrose’s best friend Seth Rollins to take on Luke Harper and Ryback of the Wyatt Family.


Raw: (4/6/2015)- Austin, TX
DANIEL BRYAN (w/AJ Bryan) vs. DAVID OTUNGA (w/Damien Sandow & Naomi)-
Dragon wins clean in seven minutes. During the match, the announcers push the fact that Dragon passed out to the Viper’s Bite at WrestleMania, not tapped out. They also push Orton’s usportsmanlike actions as well as AJ’s promo from Smackdown. They say it would be interesting to hear Dragon respond to AJ’s comments.

JOHN CENA vs HEATH SLATER-
Cena wins clean in six minutes.

Byron Saxton interviews Kane, Truth, and Swagger. He asks Swagger to comment on his loss to Kalisto on Superstars. Swagger expresses his frustration with losing. Kane and Truth give him a “pep talk” (for lack of a better term) encouraging him to tap into his anger and frustration and go out and destroy his opponent tonight.

KALISTO vs. DAMIEN SANDOW (w/David Otunga & Naomi)-
Kalisto wins clean in eighteen minutes. The announcers put this over as a big win for Kalisto against a former IC Champion.

ASHLEY FLAIR vs. CAMERON-
Ashley wins clean in five minutes, making Cameron tap to the Figure Eight Leg Lock. During this match, the announcers recap both Ashley and Nattie’s promos from Smackdown and plug an interview with Nattie later tonight to see how Nattie responds to Ashley’s latest inflammatory comments.

Byron Saxton is interviewing Randy Orton. He first asks Randy if he feels any remorse for putting Roman Reigns on the shelf with concussion-like symptoms via a punt to the head on Smackdown. Randy says Byron’s question is stupid. He did what he had to in order to win the match- in this case, that was hurt Roman Reigns.
Byron asks Orton for a response to AJ’s comments from Smackdown. Orton says that she is just making excuses. Dragon is weak and didn’t finish the job when he had the chance. It’s his own fault he lost.

JACK SWAGGER vs. A JOBBER-
Swagger makes the jobber tap in about six seconds with the Patriot Act. The jobber sells it like his ankle is broken.

Renee Young asks Dolph Ziggler about Cena’s promo from Smackdown. Dolph responds by declaring “I’m not afraid of John Cena. If he shows his face during my match tonight, I’ll kick his ass.”

ZACK RYDER & SETH ROLLINS (w/Dean Ambrose) vs. BRODUS CLAY & RYBACK (w/the Wyatt Family)-
The match never gets started because the Wyatts attack Ryder on his way down to the ring, injuring him. A brawl ensues and Dean and Seth are beaten down.
Mark Henry cuts a promo on Kane, Swagger, and Truth, warning them that he’s not done with them yet and he will be seeking revenge on them for injuring his protégé Big E. Langston.

BIG SHOW & KOFI KINGSTON vs. ANTONIO CESARO & DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman)-
Big Show & Kofi win in twenty minutes when a Heyman distraction of the referee allows John Cena to interfere and hit Dolph with an AA. Kofi pins Dolph.

When we get back from commercial, Cole quickly shoots us over to Renee Young and a cameraman who are following Paul Heyman around. Paul E. is walking briskly and with purpose, telling us that he is going to go to Steph’s office and complain about Cena’s interference in his clients’ match. On his way to Steph’s office, he bumps into John Cena. Cena tells Paul that if Dolph has any balls, he’ll meet Cena on Smackdown in a steel cage where they can end this once and for all, one-on-one.

EMMA vs. ALICIA FOX
Emma wins clean in six minutes

Renee Young is backstage interviewing Tyson Kidd and Natalya Neidhart. Tyson cuts a short promo apologizing for taking advantage of the Wyatt Family’s interference to pin Dean Ambrose on Smackdown, explaining that Wade Barrett knocked him loopy and he didn’t realize what had happened, and when he finally got back into it, all he saw was Dean in a position he could take advantage of… but that doesn’t mean that he won’t capitalize on the title opportunity he has been given, and he will give it his all tomorrow night on Main Event and win the US Title.
Nattie, for her part, cuts a scathing promo on Ashley. “Ashley needs to start being a professional wrestler. We have rules and traditions about showing respect in the locker room, but Ashley insists that she has her own special set of rules that only apply to her. Honey… stop being a Diva.”

WADE BARRETT & CODY RHODES vs. THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes)-
Wade & Cody win clean in fifteen minutes when Cody pins one of the Colons after a Cross Rhodes.
During this match, Cole informs us that the Cena vs. Ziggler steel cage match for Smackdown has been made official.


We get a fiery promo from Seth and Dean in the trainer’s room, telling the Wyatts that it will take a lot more than a few bruises to break them.

WWE WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: The Usos(c) vs. International Airstrike 2.0-
Early on in the match, The Miz saunters out to ringside to do guest commentary, reminding everyone that he and Tyson Kidd won a tag team title shot #1 contendership battle royale last week on Raw. The finish comes when Gabriel hits Jey Uso with a 450, then tags in Neville, who goes up to the top rope to hit the Red Arrow, but Miz shoves him off the top rope to cause a DQ.

Later that night on Twitter, Miz posts that he put International Airstrike in their place for trying to steal the spot as #1 contenders to the tag titles that rightfully belong to him and his tag team partner Tyson Kidd.




Main Event: (4/7/2015)

CODY RHODES vs. HEATH SLATER-
Cody wins clean in four minutes.

KALISTO vs. PRIMO COLON (w/Epico Colon & Rosa Mendes)-
Kalisto wins clean in six minutes.

We get an update on the Health of IC Champion Roman Reigns. It has been determined that he did not suffer a concussion as a result of Randy Orton’s punt, and will be cleared to return to action on Smackdown.

WWE UNITED STATES TITLE MATCH: Dean Ambrose(c) (w/Seth Rollins) vs. Tyson Kidd (w/Nattie Neidhart)-
They wrestle for about seven minutes until we get a ref bump, after which point the Wyatt Family shows up to attack Dean and Seth. Tyson sends Nattie away, then joins the fray fighting against the Wyatts. Unfortunately for the babyfaces, it is still four-on-three in favor of the Wyatts. The announcers speculate that Tyson Kidd’s new- if unplanned- tag team partner The Miz might come out to help, but he doesn’t. Instead, Kofi Kingston and Big Show come out to help fight of the Wyatts, and with his faction outnumbered five to four, Bray calls a retreat (Big Show and Kofi stay out to guard the ring even after the Wyatts have gone).
The referee recovers and the rest of the match is wrestled cleanly, with Dean pinning Tyson via Dirty Deeds to retain the US Title. They shake hands afterwards.



The hype for Smackdown is built around the Cena vs. Ziggler steel cage main event, and the fact that Daniel Bryan has consented to an interview in which he will reveal his true feelings on Randy Orton’s underhanded actions at WrestleMania. The other match that is hyped up will feature WWE Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns return to action after a week on the shelf, and he will team Big Show to face Big Show’s WrestleMania opponent, Wade Barrett, and the very man who put Roman on the shelf: World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton.



Smackdown: (4/9/2015)- Dallas, TX
Smackdown opens with a VERY angry Justin Gabriel and Adrian Neville calling out Tyson Kidd and The Miz. Miz doesn’t show up, but Tyson Kidd does. He apologizes profusely for Miz ruining their tag title match on Raw, and says that despite whatever Miz might be claiming, he had nothing to do with it.
Miz eventually goes come out and explains his actions: The battle royale that he and Tyson Kidd won the night after WrestleMania made them the #1 contenders to the WWE World Tag Team Titles, and that means that no one should be getting a title shot before them. Airstrike say they’ll go to Steph and ask her to book Kidd and Miz’s tag title shot for tonight so they can get it out of the way and then they’ll get their rematch next week in the United Kingdom.
Miz says this would be unfair, as he and Tyson haven’t even teamed yet and they need some time to develop chemistry- which is why he was just in Steph’s office and got the following match signed for right now: Tyson Kidd & The Miz vs. Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose.

TYSON KIDD & THE MIZ vs. SETH ROLLINS & DEAN AMBROSE-
Once again we get a ref bump and interference by the Wyatt Family. Kofi Kingston and Big Show come out to help fight the Wyatts, and eventually the Wyatts are chased off, but while the Wyatts are being chased off, Miz wakes up the referee and pins Dean Ambrose, who had been put down by the Wyatts.

Kofi & Big Show cut a promo explaining that they are once again standing against Bray and they call Dean Ambrose a shining example of someone who has managed to overcome Bray’s influence and seen Bray for the manipulator that he is. They hope that everyone else sees that, too, and that they don’t let themselves become vulnerable and let Bray manipulate them. The announcers wonder whether or not they are talking about Jack Swagger.

Cody Rhodes comes out and demands that, in light of his recent winning streak and unfairly losing his last title shot, Steph name him the #1 contender to the World Heavyweight Title. Kalisto comes out and reminds us all that himself has been on a winning streak lately, and that he was the one who eliminated Cody from the tag team title shot battle royale on Raw the night after WrestleMania, so he should be #1 contender to the World Heavyweight Title. Steph comes out and books them in a #1 contendership match for later tonight.

ANTONIO CESARO vs. HEATH SLATER-
Heyman comes out to try to manage Cesaro, but Cesaro sends him to the back, which leads to Slater scaring everyone to death by getting a nearfall on the distracted Cesaro. Heyman goes to the back and Cesaro wins cleanly soon thereafter with the Gotch-style Neutralizer.
Renee tries to get a reaction interview from Cesaro, but she never gets the chance to get her question out because John Cena comes over to Cesaro and shakes his hand, congratulating him on the victory.

Byron Saxton interviews The Usos. He asks them for their thoughts on the situation involving their own WWE World Tag Team Titles, International Airstrike 2.0, and Tyson Kidd & The Miz. The Usos say that Airstrike definitely deserve a rematch after the way The Miz ruined their match on Raw, but they are ready and willing to defend the titles against whoever WWE management puts in front of them.
Byron Saxton then asks Jey Uso if he thinks The Miz’s interference saved him, because, in Byron opinion, there was no way Jey was kicking out of the Red Arrow if Neville at been able to hit it. Jey and Jimmy both become very annoyed at Byron, and Jey says he’s certain he would have kicked out.

KANE, JACK SWAGGER, & R-TRUTH vs. MARK HENRY & THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes)-
Kane, Truth, and Swagger win cleanly when Swagger pins one of the Colons. After the match, Bray Wyatt comes out onto the ramp and tries to recruit Kane, Truth, and Swagger, but they tell him they don’t need his help.

RANDY ORTON & WADE BARRETT vs. ROMAN REIGNS & BIG SHOW-
Heels win clean in fifteen minutes when Wade once again KOs Big Show with the Barrett Barrage and gets the pin.

Ashley Flair comes out to the ring to cut a promo on Nattie, but Nattie quickly interrupts her. Nattie says the she is going to cash in her rematch clause and the WWE Divas Title from Ashley, but Ashley cheapshots Nattie and runs off.

WINNER BECOMES #1 CONTENDER TO THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE: Cody Rhodes vs. Kalisto-
They go to a double count-out after Kalisto does a big flying senton onto Cody that knocks them both through the Spanish announce table.

We go backstage to our interview with Daniel Bryan. Bryan admits that he was being polite last week by not calling Randy out for using underhanded tactics like feigning an injury in their WrestleMania match… but when it comes down to it, Randy is still right. He could have followed up and given Randy no quarter and he would have won the match and won the World Heavyweight Title, but he chose not to, and as a result, he lost, and now he has to live with that.

STEEL CAGE MATCH: Dolph Ziggler vs. John Cena-
Ziggler wins clean. The announcers call this out as another big match that Cena has failed to win, and JBL once again asks if “Big Match John” is losing his big match touch.


Superstars
: (4/10/2015)
Tonight’s match will be Kofi Kingston vs. WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro. Kofi’s promo admits that he only won the match on Raw against Cesaro and Ziggler because John Cena interfered, but that doesn’t mean that he isn’t a threat to win any match on his own.
Heyman cuts promos talking about all three of his clients, not just Cesaro, and keeps trying to hype up to an eventual Cesaro vs. Lesnar rematch.
Cesaro says generic babyface stuff about wanting to take on all comers, but when he is asked about Heyman, he says he considers Paul a great advisor, but doesn’t want him at ringside for his matches because he doesn’t want there to be any question about whether or not he won fairly.

ANTONIO CESARO vs. KOFI KINGSTON-
Heyman once again comes out for Cesaro’s match against Cesaro’s will. We get a spot where Heyman trips Kofi up on the apron, and while the referee doesn’t see it, Cesaro does. Cesaro tells the ref what happened, and the ref ejects Heyman from ringside. Cesaro wins clean in twenty-five minutes.



WWE.com announces its first match for the Backlash 2015 PPV: a WrestleMania rematch which will see Ashley Flair defend her newly-won Divas Title against Natalya Neidhart.

Advertised for Raw in London is WWE Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns facing the UK’s own Wade Barrett, the makeshift team of Tyson Kidd & The Miz taking on The Colons, Jey Uso vs. Adrian Neville, Jack Swagger & Kane vs. Mark Henry & a mystery partner, and a main event featuring Antonio WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro taking on Seth Rollins.


Raw: (4/13/2015)- London, UK
Raw opens with Paul Heyman and Dolph Ziggler in the ring. Paul tells the British fans that while the UK isn’t important enough for Brock Lesnar to come, he has brought with him the man who has defeated John Cena TWICE in the past three weeks- first at WrestleMania, and then last week on Smackdown in a steel cage- Dolph Ziggler!
In addition to Dolph, he lets us all know that he has brought his other client, the man who will face Seth Rollins in tonight’s main event… and the man who will soon be facing Brock Lesnar in a rematch for the WWE Title (back in the US where it matters, of course): the WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro.
Heyman asks Dolph to predict the winner of this upcoming but not yet officially announced epic showdown. Dolph predicts that Brock will regain his title, because Brock would never do something stupid like send the man responsible for his success, Paul Heyman, to the back like Cesaro did a few days ago Superstars.
Cesaro comes out cuts an angry promo. “The reason I sent Paul to the back is because I didn’t need his help to beat Kofi. I did it on my own. Just like I didn’t need your help to be John Cena on Raw two weeks ago. I was well on my way to doing it on my own. I had already powered out of the STFU before you can in and interfered unwanted. And I also didn’t need anyone’s help to win the WWE Title at WrestleMania. I did it on my own. In fact, I did it with my own manager being in my opponent’s corner! I don’t need Dolph Ziggler and I don’t need Paul Heyman, and… I don’t want them, either!”
Cesaro slams the mic down and walks out. Dolph is indignant and yells at the Cesaro as he walks up the ramp, while Heyman goes into panic mode.

THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes) vs. THE MIZ & TYSON KIDD-
At one point Rosa tries to interfere but Nattie stops her from doing so. Kidd and The Miz win clean when Miz pins Epico after Tyson hits Epico with a springboard elbow drop.

NIKKI BELLA vs. PAIGE-
Paige wins clean with the Stretch Muffler in seven minutes.

MARK HENRY’S MYSTERY PARTNER IS…
Hidden text.
JOHN CENA!


MARK HENRY & JOHN CENA vs. JACK SWAGGER & KANE (w/R-Truth)-
Cena and Henry win clean in ten minutes when Cena pins Swagger after an AA.

JEY USO (w/Jimmy Uso) vs. ADRIAN NEVILLE (w/Justin Gabriel)-
Neville wins clean in thirteen minutes, pinning Jey after hitting the Red Arrow. Cole reminds us that Nevlle and Gabriel are still owed a tag title shot, but can’t get theirs until after Miz and Tyson Kidd get one.
ZACK RYDER KOFI KINGSTON, & BIG SHOW vs. CODY RHODES & BRAIN TRUST (w/Naomi)-
Cody & the Brain Trust win clean in ten minutes when Cody pins Ryder. The Wyatt Family jumps the babyfaces after the match, but Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose come out armed with chairs to make the save. As he retreats, Bray tells Dean “just wait until you see what I have in store for you on Smackdown.”

WADE BARRETT vs. ROMAN REIGNS-
Wade cleans clean in twenty minutes, pinning Roman after knocking him out with the Barrett Barrage.

Cody Rhodes cuts a promo saying that because his #1 contendership match with Kalisto went to a double count-out and he won his match here tonight, he should be named #1 contender to the World Heavyweight Title.

HEATH SLATER vs. KALISTO-
Kalisto wins clean in six minutes. Renee Young gets a reaction interview from Kalisto. She asks him about Cody’s comments, to which Kalisto responds that he was won his match tonight, too.

Randy Orton comes out to the ring to cut a promo. He says that none of the supposed contenders deserve a shot at him. Both Cody and Kalisto failed to seal the deal in their #1 contendership match on Smackdown because they were too weak to get up, and Daniel Bryan himself flat out admitted on Smackdown that he is too weak to beat me.
This brings out an angry Daniel Bryan who tells Orton “I said my loss was my fault for fault following up. I NEVER said I was too weak to beat you. If you think I’m too weak to beat you then how about you try to prove it right here, right now!
This leads to…
DANIEL BRYAN vs. RANDY ORTON-
They got for about thirty minutes of mostly Orton getting heat on Dragon until Dragon makes a quick comeback ending in a Busaiku Knee and pins Orton before collapsing from exhaustion. AJ and a bunch of doctors rush out to treat Dragon as we go to commercial.

When we get back from commercial, Ashley Flair comes out to the ring and cuts a promo bragging about cheap-shotting Nattie and injuring her last week on Smackdown. This leads to AJ coming out and cutting a fiery promo on Ashley. AJ is sick and tired of Ashley’s constant disrespect, especially to a veteran like Nattie. Being a wrestler has been AJ’s dream ever since she as a little girl… and this is a tough business to make it in. As a rookie, she was treading on eggshells making sure not to offend the veterans, because her trainers taught her to have respect for those who have paved the way for her. A veteran like Nattie someone Ashley should be doing everything she can to learn from, not someone she should be antagonizing, disrespecting, and cheap-shotting. AJ demands that a referee get out here, so she can teach Ashley a lesson in respect. Steph sends a referee out, and we get…

AJ BRYAN vs. ASHLEY FLAIR-
The announcers note that challenging the champion to an impromptu match just worked out well for AJ’s husband, so maybe she will have similar luck. Unfortunately for AJ, it is not to be. Ashley wins clean in fifteen minutes, making AJ tap to the Figure Eight after AJ hangs on in the hold for a long time. When AJ gets up after the match, she is notably limping. Ashely takes her knee out from behind, then locks the Figure Eight in again until referees and security pour out from backstage to pull her off. AJ has to be helped to the back.

ANTONIO CESARO vs. SETH ROLLINS (w/Dean Ambrose)-
Cesaro wins clean in twenty-five minutes. After the match, Dolph Ziggler jumps Cesaro from behind by giving him the Zig-Zag, then cuts a promo on Cesaro for being ungrateful to him and Paul Heyman.


WWE.com announces that AJ Bryan suffered a serious leg injury at the hands of Ashley Flair and will be out indefinitely.

Main Event: 4/14/2015
TYSON KIDD & THE MIZ vs. BRAIN TRUST (w/Naomi)-
Kidd & Miz win clean in ten minutes when Miz pins Otunga with a Skull-Crushing Finale. After the match, Miz cuts a promo saying that he and Tyson want their tag team title shot this week on Superstars.

THE WYATT FAMILY vs. LOCAL WRESTLERS-
The Wyatts squash the jobbers.

Paul Heyman cuts a promo saying that in all of the debate about whether guys like Cody Rhodes or Kalisto or Daniel Bryan deserve world title shots, everyone seems to have forgotten that Dolph Ziggler is coming off of two victories over John Cena… who just must well be the greatest non-Paul Heyman Guy superstar in WWE history, and between that and the way that Ziggler easily laid out WWE Champion Cesaro, Heyman thinks that Dolph Ziggler should be getting a world title match soon as well.

JUSTIN GABRIEL (w/Adrian Neville) vs. JIMMY USO (w/Jey Uso)-
Gabriel wins clean in fifteen minutes, pinning Jimmy after hitting a 450 splash.

A bunch of news is announced as the dust settles after a very eventful day in WWE Headquarters in Stamford and in the WWE ring in London on Tuesday. Miz and Tyson Kidd will indeed get their world tag team title shot this Friday on Superstars. In other title-related news, Wade Barrett and Daniel Bryan have both earned championship matches by pinning Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns and World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton respectively. Those title matches will take place at Backlash. Also at Backlash, Cody Rhodes and Kalisto will face off to determine who will be the #1 contender to the World Heavyweight Title after Backlash.
As for Paul Heyman’s proposal that Dolph Ziggler be named #1 contender to the WWE Title, WWE officials would like to see more than a win over just one top opponent for Dolph before giving him a title shot, so Dolph has been signed to face Big Show on Smackdown, and if he wins, Dolph will then receive a shot at the WWE Title.

Smackdown: (4/16/2015)- London, UK
The show opens with Daniel Bryan coming out to cut a promo updating us on AJ’s condition… and it’s not good. Her legs are injured very badly. Randy Orton comes out and interrupts Dragon. He says that AJ is weak, just like Dragon, and when they face off at Backlash he wants to prove that to the world once and for all. He wants a match where there can be no doubt that the loser is the weaker man, with Bryan not being able to have any excuses the way people claimed that Orton played dirty or that Dragon was somehow not weak for passing out in the Viper’s Bite instead of tapping out. Orton wants… and I QUIT MATCH! Dragon accepts Orton’s terms, and Steph comes out to make it official.

WADE BARRETT vs. HEATH SLATER-
Wade knocks Slater out with the Barrett Barrage in about a minute. After the match he grabs a mic and declares that at Backlash, he is going to knock Roman Reigns out, just like he did to Roman on Raw, and just like he did to Heath Slater here tonight, and become the new Intercontinental Champion.

Renee Young interviews Roman Reigns. She points out that Roman has now been knocked out twice in the past two weeks and wonders whether he is concerned about this becoming a problem or not. Roman says that the doctors have told him he hasn’t had a concussion, so he’s not afraid of developing any problems. He says he just needs to start protecting his head more and that’s it.

R-TRUTH (w/Jack Swagger & Kane) vs. JOHN CENA (w/Mark Henry)-
Truth cuts a promo letting everyone know that he loves wrestling in London because it makes him extra angry to remember how the fans here turned on him back in 2011. Cena wins by DQ when Kane and Swagger blatantly interfere in the match. Mark Henry helps Cena fight back and with the help of a steel chair, they manage to beat the heels back on their own.

TYSON KIDD & THE MIZ vs. TWO JOBBERS-
Kidd and Miz win a squash. The Usos are on commentary to build up their tag title defense against Miz and Kidd on Superstars. The Usos push the idea that they are twins and have innate chemistry while Kidd and Miz don’t even like each other, making them less effective partners.

Paige comes out to the ring to cut a promo:
“I know I certainly haven’t been a perfect angel or anything, but Ashley Flair’s behavior ever since she got the WWE has been getting me really bloody pissed off. She thinks that just because she’s Ric Flair’s daughter the rules don’t apply to her? Well I grew up in this business. My family are legends, too… but you’ve never even heard me mention it once. I don’t even use my last name because I know that you’re only as good as your own merits, and your last name doesn’t make you special, so Ashley, why don’t you get your arse out here and I’ll teach you the respect for this business that my parents taught me, and do it the same way that they taught me: a good stiff arse-kicking in the ring!
Ashley comes out and cuts a promo of her own saying that if Paige doesn’t watch her mouth, she’s going to end up just like Nattie and AJ: on the shelf. Paige charges down to fight Ashley and we get a quick pull-apart.

KALISTO vs. PRIMO COLON (w/Epico Colon & Rosa Mendes)-
Cody Rhodes is on commentary to build up his #1 contendership match with Kalisto at Backlash. Kalisto and Primo got four about four minutes, with Kalisto probably taking about 65% of the match, then Kalisto wins by countering one of Primo’s moves into some sort of Lucha roll-up. Cody attacks Kalisto from behind after the match and beats him down until security stops him. Cole decries this foul play on Cody’s part.

International Airstrike 2.0 cut a promo saying that this week’s singles victories once again prove that they are better than the Usos, and that the Usos’ win at WrestleMania was just a fluke.

IF ZIGGLER WINS, HE GETS A WWE TITLE MATCH AT BACKLASH: Dolph Ziggler (w/Paul Heyman) vs. Big Show (w/Kofi Kingston, Seth Rollins, & Dean Ambrose)-
The announcers remind us that the Wyatts might be about because Bray claimed he had something big planned for Ambrose tonight). On the outside, Dean seems to be going crazy trying to find the Wyatts. Ziggler wins clean in fifteen minutes, choking Big Show out with the Sleeper Hold to earn a WWE Title match at Backlash.

Renee Young Interviews Cesaro, asking him how he feels about facing his former friend and the man who viciously attacked him earlier this week on Raw, Dolph Ziggler, for the WWE Title at Backlash. Cesaro says he is looking forward to getting his hands on Dolph.

BRAIN TRUST (w/Naomi) vs. SETH ROLLINS & DEAN AMBROSE (w/Kofi Kingston & Big Show)-
Seth & Dean win clean when Dean pins Otunga. After the match, Dean completely snaps, demanding that the Wyatts come out and face them like men, but the Wyatts never show up. The announcers suggest that Bray is using mind games, and it is getting to Dean.
(POST-SHOW DARK MATCH: International Airstrike 2.0, Kalisto, & Antonio Cesaro vs. Wade Barret, Cody Rhodes, & the Colons [w/Rose Mendes]-
Babyfaces win clean Neville pins Epico after a Red Arrow)
(Got to make sure that the European fans get to see the European guys when we go over there, even if it doesn’t fit into my televised plans).

WWE.com announces that Dolph Ziggler’s WWE Title shot will take place at Backlash.



Superstars: (4/17/2015)

Tonight’s match is the Usos defending the tag titles against Miz and Kidd. Our video packages and promos focus on the Usos as brother and close companions living their dream together, while Kidd and Miz are guys who would never have considered teaming together if they weren’t forced into it, and don’t always get along.

WWE WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: The Usos(c) vs. Tyson Kidd & The Miz-
Usos win clean to retain in twenty-two minutes pinning Kidd after a double splash.

Over the weekend, WWE.com announces a few new matches for Backlash:
The Usos defend the tag titles vs. International Airstrike 2.0.
The Wyatt Family vs. Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Kofi Kingston, & Big Show

On Sunday, we get some injury updates:
- Big E. Langston should be ready to go for Backlash
- AJ Bryan was cleared to return to the US, but she could be out for a long time. She hopes to be able to address the fans on Raw.
- #1 contender to the Divas Title Natalya Neidhart will return to action on Raw, facing Layla El.

Also booked for Raw we have John Cena & Mark Henry vs. R-Truth & Kane, and a monstrous twelve-man tag team main event pitting WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro, Daniel Bryan, Kalisto, Kofi Kingston, & International Airstrike 2.0 against World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton, Jack Swagger, & the Wyatt Family!




On Monday morning, we learn that Ashley Flair has asked for the week off to train for her title defense at Backlash, and WWE has granted that request.

Raw: (4/20/2015)- Albany, NY
Raw opens with The Miz coming out and demanding that he get a shot at the US Title tonight because he pinned Dean Ambrose ten days ago on Smackdown. Steph comes out and says that she will book that match for next week’s Raw. For this week, she says she had something else in mind for The Miz: she wants him to continue teaming with Tyson Kidd, so she has booked them against NXT’s Blake & Murphy.
Miz is not happy with this at all. Neither is Tyson Kidd, who comes out and tells Steph this. Steph asks them to please give it another shot. They did, after all, almost win the WWE World Tag Team Titles when they had only started teaming together just a week prior, so imagine how great they could be with a little more work. They both agree to give teaming together another shot.

DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman) vs. PRIMO COLON (w/Epico Colon & Rosa Mendes) vs. DAMIEN SANDOW (w/Brain Trust) vs. SETH ROLLINS(w/Dean Ambrose, Kofi Kingston, & Big Show)-
Ziggler wins clean in fifteen minutes, pinning Primo after a Zig Zag. After the match, Heyman cuts a promo saying that Dolph will defeat Cesaro and win the WWE Title this Sunday at Backlash.

LAYLA EL vs. NATALYA NEIDHART (w/Tyson Kidd)-
Nattie wins clean in five minutes with the Sharpshooter, dominating the entire match. After the match, Renee Young tries to get a reaction interview from Nattie. She asks Nattie if she has recovered 100% and if she thinks she will be able to beat Ashley at Backlash. Nattie assures Renee that she is 100% healthy, and vows to kick Ashley’s ass at Backlash and regain the Divas Title. AJ Bryan shows up on crutches and tells Nattie to “kick her ass for me, too.”

When we come back from commercial, AJ Bryan comes out to the ring to talk about her injuries. She admits that her legs are pretty messed up, and it might be a very long time before we see her compete in a WWE ring again.

Wade Barrett cuts a promo to hype up his IC Title match at Backlash. He says that Roman Reigns can talk about having the “heart of a champion” as much as he wants. Having “heart” doesn’t matter when you get knocked out cold.

MARK HENRY & JOHN CENA vs. R-TRUTH & KANE (w/Jack Swagger)-
They go for about ten minutes before Swagger runs in for the DQ and Cena and Henry get beaten down.

DAVID OTUNGA (w/the Brain Trust) vs. BIG SHOW (w/Kofi Kingston, Seth Rollins, & Dean Ambrose)-
Show wins clean in six minutes after he KOs Otunga with the WMD. The announcers wonder if something similar will happen to Roman Reigns at Backlash when he faced Wade Barrett.

Renee Young is backstage trying to interview Paige about her comments from Smackdown and her scuffle with Ashley Flair, but Summer interrupts and is being mean and annoying, so Paige shoves her hard into a wall and walks off.

ROMAN REIGNS vs. EPICO COLON (w/Primo Colon & Rosa Mendes)-
Roman wins clean in eight minutes with the spear. The announcers say that he looks good as new and you’d never know that he got knocked out twice in eight days.

The Usos cut a promo saying that at Backlash, they will prove to International Airstrike 2.0 and to the whole world that their tag team title win at WrestleMania wasn’t a fluke: It was destiny.

BLAKE & MURPHY vs. THE MIZ & TYSON KIDD (w/Natalya Neidhart)-
Miz and Kidd control most of the match and almost seem to be gelling together. We even get a spot where they do tandem dives to the outside, but that is the end of their teamwork as Tyson injures his leg on his dive. Miz rolls the legal man (let’s say Murphy) back into the ring and hits the Skull-Crushing Finale for the pin. Meanwhile, Nattie and some medical personnel tend to Tyson. Miz celebrates in the ring, apparently unconcerned about Tyson, but as he heads to the back, he tries to cheer Tyson up by telling him not to worry because “I won the match for us!”

Bray Wyatt comes out to the ring, alone. He tries to get a mic, but they all get cut off when he takes them, so he just starts shouting for Dean to come out and face him just like Dean wanted last week. Dean charges out to face Bray, but the Wyatts were hiding near Gorilla position and come out right behind Dean and beat him down. Cole calls this an “ambush.” JBL points out that Bray is smartly trying to weaken Dean before the big eight man tag team match at the PPV. Rollins, Big Show, and Kofi come out to make the save.

John Cena and Mark Henry cut a backstage promo. They say that if Kane, Swagger, and Truth like fighting as a trio so much, then why don’t they have a six man tag team match at Backlash when Big E. Langston is ready to return from the injury that Kane, Swagger, and Truth inflicted on him?

THE WYATT FAMILY, JACK SWAGGER, & RANDY ORTON vs. ANTONIO CESARO, KALISTO, KOFI KINGSTON, INTERNATIONAL AIRSTRIKE 2.0, & DANIEL BRYAN (w/AJ Bryan)-
AJ, still on her crutches, joins the commentary team a few minutes into the match. The announcers ask her if this change of position has to do with pain in her legs, and she admits that it does. Her legs are in a lot of pain and are very messed up, but she knew she had to be out here to support her husband, especially after the way he has supported her since her injury.
The match goes about twenty minutes and is very chaotic. At one point Cody Rhodes sneaks down to the ring, pulls Kalisto off the apron and assaults him, finishing it off with a Cross Rhodes onto the ramp, and the ref is so busy with everything else that he sees none of it. Things devolve into a schmoz, and with Kalisto taken out of the match, that leaves the babyfaces a man down, which allows the Wyatts- specifically Ryback and Harper- to double-team Big Show and pin him for the win.


WWE.com announces that Cena, Henry, & Big E. vs. Kane, Truth, and Swagger has been made official for Backlash.

As a result of their backstage altercation on Raw, Summer Rae vs. Paige has been signed for Smackdown.


Main Event: (4/21/2015)
DAVID OTUNGA (w/Brain Trust) vs. DEAN AMBROSE (w/Seth Rollins, Kofi Kingston, & Big Show)-
Dean wins clean in six minutes with Dirty Deeds. As the babyfaces are about to head backstage, the Wyatts, who were waiting just behind the curtain, pop out and attack them and beat them down until a bunch of security guys rush in to pull them off.

Kalisto is backstage and tries to cut a promo but is jumped from behind and beaten up by Cody Rhodes.

ALICIA FOX vs. NIKKI BELLA-
Fox wins clean in ten minutes.
Renee Young tries to get a reaction interview with Alicia Fox, but is rather rudely interrupted by Summer Rae, who says she has an “offer” for Fox and tells Renee to get lost.

Tom Phillips asks The Miz about Tyson Kidd’s injury. Miz seems completely unconcerned, saying “I’m sure he’ll be fine.” Miz then cuts a promo demanding that his US Title match against Dean Ambrose, scheduled for next week’s Raw, be moved up to this week’s Smackdown because “I know that the Wyatts will destroy Dean so badly at Backlash that there won’t be anything left of him on Monday.”

THE USOS & ZACK RYDER vs. CODY RHODES, WADE BARRETT, & MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY-
Cody pins Ryder clean in twenty minutes.


On Wednesday, WWE.com reports that Tyson Kidd will be flying back home to Calgary to see a specialist about his leg injury, and thus will not be on Smackdown. His wife, Natalya, has requested time off to go with her husband and WWE has granted this request.

On Thursday, WWE.com announces that tonight on Smackdown, we will have an interview with WWE Divas Champion Ashley Flair live via satellite from her home in Charlotte, where she is training for her title defense against Natalya on Sunday.
WWE.com also announces that after consulting US Champion Dean Ambrose, The Miz’s request to have his title shot take place on tonight’s Smackdown instead of on next week’s Raw has also been granted.
Also on Smackdown, we will see Kalisto take on Zack Ryder, Wade Barrett & the Brain Trust take on Roman Reigns & International Airstrike 2.0, and the previously announced women’s match featuring Paige vs. Summer Rae. There will also be a contract signing for the I Quit match for the World Heavyweight Title between Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton.
On Superstars, Cody Rhodes will face Michael McGillicutty.
Late on Thursday, Cesaro Tweets Cena, noting that they never got to have a clean match against each other a few weeks ago because Ziggler interfered, and he asks if Cena wants to give it another go tonight. Cena replies that he does, and WWE.com announces the match as our new main event for Smackdown.


Smackdown
: (4/23/2015)- Providence, RI

At the beginning of the show, the announcers recap the Cesaro-Cena Twitter exchange that has led to tonight’s new main event.

KALISTO vs. ZACK RYDER-
Cody Rhodes is out on commentary once again. Kalisto wins clean in seven minutes. Cody waits until Kalisto’s back is turned to him, then charges at him, but Kalisto knew it was coming this time and had only turned his back to sucker Cody in. Kalisto catches Cody in a drop toe hold, making Cody look stupid. Kalisto walks off while Cody stays down on the mat, giving him a death stare.

Renee Young interviews Ashley Flair live via satellite. Renee says there have been rumors going around that the reason that Ashley asked for this week off to train for her match from home was because it was announced that Nattie would be returning from her injury, and she is scared of what Nattie might do to her. Ashley says that’s all BS. She’s not scared of Nattie at all. In fact, she’s going to kick Nattie’s ass again at the PPV.
Paige then comes out and says that “Ashley isn’t scared of Nattie. She’s scared of me. And she should be.”

ROMAN REIGNS & INTERNATIONAL AIRSTRIKE 2.0 vs. WADE BARRETT & BRAIN TRUST (w/Naomi)-
Babyfaces win clean when Roman pins Otunga with a spear. After the match, Wade knocks Roman out with a Barrett Barrage and stands over his fallen body.

SUMMER RAE vs. PAIGE-
Paige kicks Summer’s ass for a few minutes until we get a ref bump. Alicia Fox interferes on Summer’s behalf, but Paige makes her own comeback, nails Fox with the Rampage, then revives the ref and makes Summer tap to the Stretch Muffler.

Dolph Ziggler cuts a promo vowing to embarrass Cesaro by taking the WWE Title from him in his first defense. Dolph declares that he and Paul Heyman are the perfect combination of ability and strategy, and that he will make Cesaro rue the day he spurned the greatest manager of all time: Paul Heyman.

We get a segment with the announcers where they push the Divas Title match, and specifically the fact that, while Ashley is able to be at home and devote herself to training for this match full-time, Nattie is having to take time off to go to the doctor with her injured husband, and so she is not only losing training time, but also might not be 100% focused.

KANE, R-TRUTH, & JACK SWAGGER vs. THREE JOBBERS-
Squash.

Michael McGillicutty cuts a promo building up his match with Cody Rhodes tomorrow night on Superstars and says that if he beats one of the men going into a #1 contendership match on the PPV, that will catapult him into title contention as well.

WWE UNITED STATES TITLE MATCH: Dean Ambrose(c) (w/Seth Rollins, Kofi Kingston, & Big Show) vs. The Miz-
They go for about ten minutes before we get a ref bump and an attack by the Wyatts. Unlike Tyson Kidd, who joined with Dean, Seth, Kofi, and Big Show to fend off the Wyatts before finishing his title match against Dean undisturbed, Miz takes advantage of the Wyatts’ attack to sneak up on Dean and give him a Skull-Crushing Finale. While Rollins, Big Show, and Kofi brawl to the back with the Wyatts, Miz wakes up the ref and pins Dean Ambrose to win the WWE United States Title.
We get a video package of Mark Henry working with Big E. to train for his return on Sunday.

Next we have the World Heavyweight Title I Quit match contract signing between Dragon and Orton. AJ is out with Dragon, still on her crutches, and clearly in pain. Bryan cuts a promo talking about heart and strength of character and stuff like that. He tells Orton that these things make him strong, not weak, as Randy will find out this Sunday. Orton simply tells Dragon that he will do ANYTHING to win and Dragon won’t, and that is his weakness and why Orton will win on Sunday.

JOHN CENA vs. ANTONIO CESARO-
Cesaro wins clean in twenty minutes, pinning Cena after a Neutralizer. After the match, Dolph comes out form the crowd, grabs the WWE Title belt, and nails Cesaro in the back of the head with it. We go off the air with the image of Dolph standing over a fallen Cesaro and posing with the WWE Title.

Superstars: (4/24/2015)
This week’s match is Cody Rhodes vs. Michael McGillcutty. Our video packages compare them as wrestlers who grew up with business, pointing out Cody’s success and McGillicutty’s lack thereof, with McGillicutty talking about how his lack of success so far just makes him that much more determined.
CODY RHODES vs. MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY-
Cody wins clean in fifteen minutes.

At the end of the show, we get some general hype for Backlash, including an announcement that, due to events last night on Smackdown, Alicia Fox vs. Paige has been signed for the pre-show.

BACKLASH RUNDOWN

WWE Backlash 2015: (4/26/2015)- Chicago, IL


WWE TITLE MATCH: Antonio Cesaro(c) vs. Dolph Ziggler (w/Paul Heyman)
Paul Heyman and Dolph Ziggler have both been ascribing Cesaro's WWE Title victory at WrestleMania to the lessons taught to him by Paul Heyman, even though Heyman was in his opponent's corner that night. Now, after kicking Heyman to the curb, Cesaro will have the chance to prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he is responsible for his own success.

I QUIT MATCH FOR THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE: Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan (w/AJ Bryan)
With the only way to win being making your opponent say "I quit," we will be left with no doubt which one of these two men is stronger of body, stronger of heart, and stronger of will.

#1 CONTENDERSHIP MATCH: Cody Rhodes vs. Kalisto
Two men on a roll since WrestleMania collide once again to determine who will be the #1 contender to the World Heavyweight Title after Backlash.

WWE WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: The Usos(c) vs. International Airstrike 2.0
The Usos look to prove that their only victory against Airstrike- in the WWE World Tag Team Title match at WrestleMania- wasn't a fluke.

WWE DIVAS TITLE MATCH: Ashley Flair(c) vs. Natalya Neidhart
A WrestleMania rematch, but instead of legendary relatives, the only thing these two women will be bringing to the ring with them this time is a growing animosity.

WWE INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE MATCH: Roman Reigns(c) vs. Wade Barrett
Roman Reigns has the heart of a champion: the will and resolve needed to fight through whatever pain it takes to continue the match... but all of the heart and resolve in the world won't do him any good if the best striker in the WWE once again knocks him out with the Barrett Barrage!

THE WYATT FAMILY vs. SETH ROLLINS, DEAN AMBROSE, KOFI KINGSTON, & BIG SHOW
This one will be wild!

KANE, JACK SWAGGER, & R-TRUTH vs. JOHN CENA, MARK HENRY, & BIG E. LANGSTON
Big E. returns to team with Cena and Henry to try to get revenge on the men who took him out.

PRE-SHOW MATCH: Alicia Fox vs. Paige
Fox stuck her nose in Paige's match with Summer Rae on Smackdown. At Backlash, she must face the consequences.

WWE Backlash 2015: (4/26/2015)- Chicago, IL

PRE-SHOW: Miz shows up on the pre-show panel and announces that he wrestle his very first match as WWE United States Champion tonight at Extreme Rules… and he has an opponent who all of the WWE fans- especially those in Chicago- will go crazy for!

Kofi Kingston, Big Show, Seth Rollins, and Dean Ambrose cut a promo to hype up their match against the Wyatts. Dean vows to get revenge on Bray for costing him his US Title on Smackdown. Kofi and Big Show put Dean over as a shining example of someone who has realized that Bray Wyatt is a charlatan and the ability to conquer our demons is within each and every one of us.

Renee Young interviews Nattie. She first asks for an update on Tyson Kidd’s condition. Nattie says that the injury Tyson sustained on Raw is worse than they first thought, and he will be out of action for a few months. Renee then asks if Nattie will be able to focus on her title match with Ashley Flair tonight, knowing the condition her husband is in. Nattie assures Renee that she will be.

ALICIA FOX vs. PAIGE-
Summer Rae comes out to do commentary and buries Fox for not getting the job done and helping her to beat Paige on Smackdown. She says that Fox is a terrible bodyguard, and teases that she will have to find a new, better replacement.
Paige wins clean in ten minutes, making Fox tap to the Stretch Muffler.

Paul Heyman cuts a promo to hype up the WWE Title match.

MAIN SHOW:
KANE, JACK SWAGGER, & R-TRUTH vs. JOHN CENA, MARK HENRY, & BIG E. LANGSTON-
This is your standard tag team match with shine in the beginning until Big E. gets cut off and becomes the babyface in peril. He eventually makes the hot tag to Cena, at which point stuff happens and tags are made until eventually Kane doubles Mark Henry over with some big body shots, then Truth comes off the top rope with a flying corkscrew scissors kick, then Swagger follows it up with a Swagger bomb, and Truth pins Henry while Kane and Swagger manage to prevent Cena and Big E. from breaking it up. Total time should be about ten minutes.

THE WYATT FAMILY vs. SETH ROLLINS, DEAN AMBROSE, KOFI KINGSTON, & BIG SHOW-
Unlike the last match in which every pretty much followed the rules and stayed on the apron when they were supposed to, this one doesn’t even make it to both teams being on the apron the babyfaces charge down to the ring and start brawling with the Wyatts. The referee is eventually able to gain control of the match, but it is never long until it breaks down once again. The babyface win clean when Seth pins Brodus Clay after a Phoenix Splash. Total time should be about fourteen minutes.

The Miz comes out to the ring and introduces his opponent for tonight: Chicago’s favorite son…
(*cue “CM PUNK!” chants*)

MR. CHICAGO (a nameless jobber under a mask with the Chicago Flag on it)

THE MIZ vs. MR. CHICAGO-
Miz dominates Mr. Chicago with ease. It almost seems like he is showing off. The announcers also note that he keeps glancing back towards the ramp, as if he is expecting someone to come out. During one of these glances, Mr. Chicago manages to roll Miz up for a very close nearfall, but Miz kicks out, then sets about aggressively beating Mr. Chicago down before pinning him with a Skull-Crushing Finale. Miz walks to the back, looking a little annoyed. Total time should be about five minutes.

WWE DIVAS TITLE MATCH: Ashley Flair(c) vs. Natalya Neidhart-
The announcers keep pushing two things: First, that Ashley had a full week off to train while Nattie’s training was interrupted by having to take Tyson Kidd to the doctor, and second that despite what Nattie said earlier, they don’t think it’s possible for her to be 100% focused on this match instead of thinking about Tyson, especially with her husband’s absence from ringside as an ever-present reminder.
Nattie does pretty well for herself, and they go back and forth for about twelve minutes. At that point Nattie is actually the one in control, as she has just leveled Ashley with a discus clothesline, but, surprisingly, The Miz comes out to ringside and starts trying to talk to Nattie, which distracts Nattie enough for Ashley to roll her up and escape and with the title. The announcers are completely baffled as to why Miz came out here and what he possibly could have been saying to Nattie.

WWE INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE MATCH: Roman Reigns(c) vs. Wade Barrett-
The match is obviously built around Wade trying to knock Roman out with the Barrett Barrage. Roman manages to avoid it each time and eventually hits Wade with a spear and gets the pin at around the thirteen minute mark.

WWE WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: The Usos(c) vs. International Airstrike 2.0-
Airstrike play the subtle heels here, but the Usos eventually get their hot tag. We then get people flying all around doing their dives and flips until the Usos hit their double splash on Neville and pin him to retain the titles in fifteen minutes.

#1 CONTENDERSHIP MATCH: Kalisto vs. Cody Rhodes
Cody wins clean in fifteen minutes.

I QUIT MATCH FOR THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE: Randy Orton(c) vs. Daniel Bryan (w/AJ Bryan)-
AJ, still on crutches, joins in on commentary. They do stuff to each other for a while until we get a spot where Orton has Dragon locked in the Viper’s Bite. Dragon looks like he is fading, or like he might give up at any moment, but AJ gets up from commentary and hobbles over to the apron and starts cheering Dragon on. This, of course, gives Dragon the strength to fight on and break the hold and Dragon takes over the match for a bit.
At one point Dragon goes to the outside near AJ to grab a weapon, but Orton fires up and charges and dives over the top rope, wiping out both Mr. and Mrs. Bryan. This aggravates the pain in AJ’s legs as well as knocks her crutches away, leaving her on her side on the floor, clearly in a lot of pain. To make matters worse, Orton pulls AJ’s crutches away from her. He tosses one away and uses the other to beat the crap out of Dragon. Orton demands that Dragon quit, but Dragon won’t to do, not matter how many times Orton hits him with the crutch.
Then Orton gets an evil gleam in his eye. He tosses the crutch away, and slowly stalks over to AJ. He puts his foot right next to her head, lining her up for a punt. He takes a few steps back to his big running start, as the announcers all scream and yell and beg him not to do this horrible, despicable thing to this defenseless young woman. Even the referee runs over to Orton to implore him not to do this. Randy simply shoves the ref out of his way, and as he starts running towards AJ, Daniel Bryan screams at the top of his lungs “I QUIT! I QUIT! RANDY, I QUIT! STOP! I QUIT!”
Orton stops, turns around, grabs his title, and heads up the ramp with a very satisfied smirk on his face, still the World Heavyweight Champion. Total time should be about twenty minutes.

WWE TITLE MATCH: Antonio Cesaro(c) vs. Dolph Ziggler (w/Paul Heyman)-
Cesaro manages to overcome Heyman’s interference and wins cleanly in twenty-five minutes to retain the WWE Title.

After the controversial actions of Randy Orton last night at Backlash, Orton will not be in Green Bay for tonight’s Raw. Instead he will be in Stamford, CT at Titan Towers, where he will face a disciplinary hearing for his actions. WWE General Manager Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley will also not be at Raw, as she will be presiding over the hearing.
Daniel Bryan has asked for and been granted the night off, to be with his wife, AJ, who was threatened by Orton in order to get Bryan to quit in their I Quit match for the World Heavyweight Title last night.
Raw’s main event will be a battle royale for a shot at the WWE Title which will be this week’s featured match on WWE Superstars.

Raw: (4/27/2015)- Green Bay, WI
ANTONIO CESARO vs. KANE (w/R-Truth & Jack Swagger)-
They got for a good fifteen minutes or so, but when it looks like Cesaro is on his way to victory, Truth and Swagger attack him for the DQ and beat him down.

Ashley Flair cuts a promo bragging about her win over Nattie last night. She says it’s Nattie’s own fault that she took her eye off the ball and lost her return match. She is now done with Nattie and ready to move on to the next challenger.

ALICIA FOX vs. LAYLA EL-
Fox wins clean in five minutes. Summer Rae is on commentary and once again buries Fox.

Miz cuts a promo blaming the fact that he got rolled up and almost lost his title last night on Natalya. The announcers are baffled as to how this could possibly make any sense. Later in the night, Renee interviews Nattie and asks her what Miz is talking about. Nattie says “it’s nothing. It’s just Miz being an idiot.”

Adrian Neville and Justin Gabriel cut a promo in which they call out the Usos so they can look them in the eyes like men and shake their hands and tell the whole world that the Usos’ victories- both at Mania and at Backlash, were not flukes. Right now, the Usos are the best tag team in the world.
The Usos thank them for their kind words, put them over as tough challengers, and they all wish each other luck in tonight’s main event battle royale.

PAIGE vs. EMMA-
Paige wins clean in ten minutes with the Stretch Muffler.
After the match, Emma gives Paige a respectful handshake. Alicia Fox then comes out and says that after last night’s match, she, too, owes Paige a handshake, and gives her one. Paige grabs a mic and thanks both of them. She then says that there is someone else who owes her something, too: After what happened back in the UK, Ashley Flair still owes her a fight, and she’s ready whenever Ashley is.
Instead of Ashley, the next person to come out is Summer Rae, who stands on the stage and declares that soon, all of the Divas will be afraid of her. The three women in the ring laugh at her, but Summer insists that it will be true.


We get a video package focusing on the finish of the Orton-Bryan I Quit match last night, with the announcers debating whether or not it was wrong for Orton to threaten to punt AJ in the head in order to get Bryan to quit.

CODY RHODES vs. BRODUS CLAY (w/the Wyatt Family)-
Cody wins clean in ten minutes with the CrossRhodes. Cody bails after the match. Bray declares that just like they did tonight, his team lost the battle last night at Backlash, but they didn’t lose the war.

John Cena cuts a promo acknowledging that he has had a rough few months, but that tonight’s battle royale for a WWE Title shot will be the start of his climb back to the top.

We also get other promos hyping up the main event.

BATTLE ROYALE FOR A SHOT AT THE WWE TITLE ON SUPERSTARS: Seth Rollins vs. Heath Slater vs. Zack Ryder vs. The Miz vs. Justin Gabriel vs. Adrian Neville vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Jey Uso vs. Jimmy Uso vs. Roman Reigns vs. Kalisto vs. Michael McGillicutty vs. Mark Henry vs. Big E. Langston vs. Wade Barrett vs. Damien Sandow vs. David Otunga s. John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Big Show vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Primo Colon vs. Epico Colon-
Here are the important eliminations:
John Cena is eliminated shockingly early by Roman Reigns
Jimmy Uso is eliminated by the Colons while Jey Uso is eliminated by Brain Trust. Both of those teams are later eliminated by Mark Henry and Big E. Langston.
Heath Slater shocks the world by eliminating US Champion The Miz.
Roman is eliminated when he tries to eliminate Kalisto, but Kalisto low-bridges him.
Seth wins in the end, last eliminating Big Show (calling back to the 2013 Royal Rumble).


On Tuesday morning, WWE.com announces that Randy Orton has been suspended for one week as a result of his actions at Backlash. WWE knows that this decision may seem over the line to some, so WWE General Manager Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley will be giving a special sit-down interview with Renee Young live on Smackdown to explain WWE’s decision.

Main Event: (4/28/2015)
HEATH SLATER vs. THE MIZ-
Miz dominates Slater, but is once again constantly looking towards the ramp. Like at Backlash, this leads to a spot where Slater rolls him up for a nearfall, but Miz kicks out. Miz then angrily destroys Slater, finishing him off with a Skull-Crushing Finale before angrily storming backstage. The announcers wonder if Miz’s behavior has anything to do with whatever the issue is with him and Nattie.

SETH ROLLINS & DEAN AMBROSE vs. BRAIN TRUST (w/Naomi)-
Brain Trust cheats to win in ten minutes with Sandow pinning Dean after a low blow.

WADE BARRETT vs. DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman)-
Barrett wins clean in seventeen minutes with the Barrett Barrage.


WWE.com reports that Daniel Bryan will be back in action this week on Smackdown. The entire world has eagerly been awaiting for comments from Bryan on Randy Orton’s actions at Backlash and his subsequent suspension, and Renee Young will be standing by to get those comments live on Smackdown!


Smackdown: (4/30/2015)- Moline, IL

DANIEL BRYAN vs. HEATH SLATER-
Daniel Bryan comes out, completely stoic, as if he can’t even hear the fans chanting for him. Bryan destroys Slater in ten seconds, making him tap furiously to the Yes Lock and leaving the hold on after the match. He heads back up the ramp, still completely expressionless. Renee Young tries to get a reaction interview from him, but he completely ignores her. Renee and the cameraman follow Bryan all the way to his car, which he gets into and pulls away.

THE USOS vs. DASH WILDER & TYE DILLENGER-
Usos win clean in four minutes. After the match, they are assaulted by the Prime Time Players, who are returning to the WWE for the first time since going on strike back in February.

PAIGE vs. LAYLA EL-
Paige squashes Layla, making her tap to the Stretch Muffler. She grabs a mic and dares Ashley to come out and fight her, but Ashley doesn’t come out.

Byron Saxton asks #1 contender to the World Heavyweight Title Cody Rhodes if he has any comments on the actions of his opponent at Payback, Randy Orton, or about Orton’s subsequent suspension. Cody tells Byron that he doesn’t give a crap about AJ Bryan or about Daniel Bryan. All he cares about is getting his title back from Orton.

SETH ROLLINS & DEAN AMBROSE vs. THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes)-
The Wyatts cause a distraction which allows Primo to roll Dean up and pin him. After the match, the Wyatts attack Dean and Seth, and Harper powerbombs Seth through the Spanish announcers’ table. Big Show and Kofi come out to with weapons to chase the Wyatts off. The announcers wonder whether or not Seth will be able to compete in his WWE Title match against Cesaro tomorrow night after suffering this powerbomb through the announcers’ table.

Byron Saxton is about to interview Natalya when The Miz storm up to her and interrupts everything. Miz yells at her, including saying that she avoided him on Raw and hasn’t answered any of his messages all week.
Nattie: “For the last time, I’m not your damn valet. In fact, I’m not your anything.”
Miz: “Yes you are! You are the valet of my tag team partner Tyson Kidd, and therefore you are my valet as well.”
Nattie: “I’m not anyone’s valet. I’m a wrestler. I am at ringside for Tyson’s matches because we are lucky enough to work for the same company so we are both in the building, so I go to ringside to support him because he is my husband, just like he does for me.”
Miz: “No. You’re my valet now, so you had better be at ringside for my match with Michael McGillicutty on Raw. #DoYourJobNattie!”
Miz storms off

RENEE YOUNG’S SIT-DOWN INTERVIEW WITH WWE GENERAL MANAGER STEPHANIE MCMAHON-HELMSLEY-
Steph starts off by explaining to everyone that Orton was suspended because she and the WWE Board of Directors found his threatening to punt AJ Bryan in the head at Backlash to be “reprehensible.” She now gives Renee the opportunity to ask some questions.
Renee: If you’ll allow me to play devil’s advocate for a moment, at the time that he made this threat, Randy Orton was involved in an I Quit match with Daniel Bryan for the World Heavyweight Title. Such actions are not against the rules in an I Quit match, and Orton threatened AJ specifically for the purpose of making her husband quit the match. Given this perspective, do you feel that suspending Randy Orton might have been a mistake?
Steph: I can admit when I’ve made a mistake. I did so just yesterday when I apologized to the Prime Time Players and admitted that I had booked them against the Wyatt Family to take my frustration out on them back in February and that they had every right to go on strike. I apologized to them for that, and tonight they returned to WWE- although I wish the first thing they did wasn’t to go around and assault someone.
The point is that that I can admit when I was wrong. If Randy and his lawyer’s arguments had persuaded me that I was wrong to order him to Titan Towers for a disciplinary hearing, I would not have suspended him and would have made up his pay for missing Raw.
But in this case, I was not wrong. I understand that Randy did what he did specifically for the purpose of trying to win the match, but if that was the only way Randy could make Daniel Bryan quit, then maybe Randy didn’t deserve to win that match. No matter what his intentions were in doing them, Randy’s actions at Backlash- threatening to punt a 105lbs woman who was essentially defenseless because she had two bad legs- were reprehensible and thus worthy of suspension.

Renee: You just mentioned the Prime Time Players assaulting the Usos earlier tonight. We’ve seen people attack and threaten others very often in WWE, even outside the confines of the match. How is this any different from what Orton did to AJ on Sunday? Isn’t punishing Randy a selective enforcement of the rules?
Steph: Here is why this case is different: AJ Bryan is on crutches. She has not one but TWO injured legs. She had gotten bumped into and knocked over during the course of the match, and was in so much pain that she couldn’t get back up. AJ was completely defenseless and was no threat to Randy. She was just at ringside to watch the match. She was a spectator, and nothing else. At Backlash, Randy Orton essentially prepared to assault a fan.

Renee: You just said that “but if that was the only way Randy could make Daniel Bryan quit, then maybe Randy didn’t deserve to win that match.” Does this mean that in your mind, Daniel Bryan deserves another shot at the World Heavyweight Title?
Steph: I’m not sure. I need to think it over more, but if I do decide that Daniel Bryan deserves another title shot, it won’t come until after Cody Rhodes has his title shot at Payback.

Cesaro calls out Kane, Truth, and Swagger, saying that if they want to fight him, he’ll fight them all at once. They come out and Cesaro lasts on his own for a few minutes before the numbers game catches up with him and he gets beaten down again.

Ashley Flair cuts a backstage promo saying that Paige doesn’t deserve a title shot, so she is not going to waste her time fighting her.

SUMMER RAE vs. EMMA-
Emma wins by DQ when Tamina makes her return from a long injury by running in and destroying Emma. Summer introduces Tamina as her new bodyguard and cuts a promo on the rest of the Divas Division, saying “Come on! Try laughing at me now! I dare you!”

John Cena cuts a backstage promo saying he is very disappointed in his early exit from Monday’s battle royale, but says that he won’t let the losses get him down. He puts Roman Reigns over for eliminating him.

THE BRAIN TRUST (w/Naomi) vs. TWO JOBBERS-
Brain Trust squash the jobbers.

MARK HENRY & BIG E. LANGSTON vs. BIG SHOW & KOFI KINGSTON (w/Dean Ambrose)-
The announcers tell us that Seth Rollins isn’t at ringside to protect against the Wyatts like he normally would be because he has been taken to a hospital to get x-rays after being powerbombed through the Spanish announcers’ table by Luke Harper earlier tonight. The announcers question whether he will be able to challenge Cesaro for the WWE Title tomorrow night.
Mark Henry & Big E. win clean in ten minutes. There is no sign of the Wyatts.

FATAL FOUR-WAY MATCH: Kalisto vs. Roman Reigns vs. Wade Barrett vs. Dolph Ziggler(w/Paul Heyman)-
They go wild all over the place, but I’d make sure there is one sequence (and only one) between Kalisto and Roman. This sequence would push the idea that Roman doesn’t know how to deal with Kalisto’s Lucha Libre style. Wade wins clean in fifteen minutes, pinning Ziggler after a Barrett Barrage.


WWE.com reports that Seth Rollins’ x-rays were negative, but he does have a bruised back. Despite this, he has vowed that he will still compete tonight and on Superstars and challenge Cesaro for the WWE Title.


Superstars: (5/1/2015)

Our promos for tonight focus on how tough and brave Seth Rollins is to be fighting through the pain of a bruised back after being powerbombed through the announcers’ table last night by Luke Harper of the Wyatt Family. Seth talks about how winning the WWE Title would be a dream come true, and there is no way he would pass up an opportunity to do so, especially in front of his hometown Quad Cities crowd.

WWE TITLE MATCH: Antonio Cesaro(c) vs. Seth Rollins (w/Dean Ambrose, Kofi Kingston, & Big Show)-
Seth fights valiantly for thirty minutes, but succumbs to his injuries when Cesaro makes him tap to the Liontamer. We get a respectful handshake afterwards.

WWE.com reports that the WWE World Tag Team Champions The Usos will not be at tonight’s Raw because of injuries suffered at the hands of the Prime Time Players on Smackdown.

Miz spends the entire weekend making Tweets that call Nattie “unprofessional” for not being his valet, finishing all of them with “#DoYourJobNattie.”




MEANWHILE, DOWN AT NXT, THE FOLLOWING THINGS HAVE BEEN HAPPENING:

1. Ashley vacated the NXT Women’s Title when she was called up to the main roster. We had a tournament that Sasha won.
2. Finn Balor won the NXT Title from Sami Zayn in early February
3. Sami Zayn was offered a chance to be promoted to the main roster after he dropped the title, but instead he asked to stay down in NXT because his best buddy Kevin Owens was rubbing people in the locker room the wrong way and Sami wanted to help Owens.


WWE.com announces some matches for Raw: Our main event will be John Cena vs. Cody Rhodes. We will also see Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns face a man who has been a thorn in his side over the past week: Kalisto. There will also be a special NXT Promotion Match in which the winning team will be promoted to the main roster. The match will see Wesley Blake & Buddy Murphy take on Quebec’s own Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.
Big Show and Kofi Kingston will not be at tonight’s Raw because they are doing publicity for WWE’s upcoming tour of the Midwest.


Raw: (5/4/2015)- Montreal, QC

We open the show with Randy Orton coming out to do an interview with Byron Saxton. Byron starts to ask Randy how he feels about his suspension, but before Randy can answer, Daniel Bryan charges down the ramp and attacks him. Bryan beats the living sh*t out of Orton. Referees come out to try to pull Bryan off of him, but Bryan starts attacking the referees. Soon security and the other wrestlers come out to stop Bryan and Steph orders that Bryan be sent home.

ZACK RYDER vs. DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman)-
Ziggler wins clean in twelve minutes with the Sleeper Hold.

HEATH SLATER vs. R-TRUTH (w/Jack Swagger & Kane)-
Truth wins clean in five minutes. After the match, Cesaro comes out with a steel chair and gets some shots in on Kane, Truth, and Swagger before they run away.

Renee Young is interviewing Cesaro about his feud with Kane, Truth, and, Swagger, and his willingness to fight them despite having a numerical disadvantage. Wade Barrett shows up and tells Cesaro that the numbers game wouldn’t be so bad for him if he had someone willing to help him… “but unfortunately for you, you no longer have any friends. No Heyman, no Ziggler, no Lesnar, and not even the best tag team partner you’ve ever had: me. BUT, I think I could be persuaded to help you for one night… IF you’d be willing to help me out by giving me a shot at the WWE Title.” Cesaro wants to know why he should trust Wade. Wade replies that he’ll only insist on the title shot if they come out on top tonight. Cesaro agrees, and they decide to head to Steph’s office to pitch it to her.

When we come back from a commercial, we learn that Cesaro & Barrett vs. Kane & Swagger has been signed for tonight, with Barrett getting a WWE Title shot at Payback if he and Cesaro win.

PAIGE vs. CAMERON-
Paige squashes Cameron. She then cuts a promo saying that Ashley Flair doesn’t want to give her a title shot because she is afraid to face her. Ashley comes out and says that if Paige wants to face her so badly, she’ll talk to Steph and arrange for a match between them on Smackdown.


MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY vs. THE MIZ-
Miz is once again constantly looking up the ramp to see if Nattie is coming out to be his valet. Like all of his other recent matches, Miz controls the match until he takes too long focusing on (the lack of) Nattie, resulting in him getting rolled up… but this time he isn’t able to kick out and Michael McGillicutty picks up the upset victory over the US Champion in ten minutes.

When we come back from commercial, Renee Young is getting ready to interview Nattie when The Miz shows up and screams at her for costing him his match. Nattie just rolls her eyes at Miz, which infuriates Miz even more. He screams at her some more, then walks off.
In the background, we hear Summer Rae snickering. Nattie wheels on Summer, who says “why don’t you go do your job, Nattie?” Nattie tells Summer that if she doesn’t get out of her face right now, she’ll give her an ass-kicking that will make the ones she gave her last fall seem like a day at the spa.

ROMAN REIGNS vs. KALISTO-
Kalisto avoids a lot of Roman’s stuff and rolls him up with some sort of wacky Lucha roll-up to pick up the non-title victory over the IC Champion in fifteen minutes.

THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS vs. TWO JOBBERS-
PTP squash the jobbers. Then they cut a promo explaining that they are now no longer on strike because Steph apologized to them and admitted that she had used the Wyatts to take her frustration out on them… and made a compensatory payment of “millions o’ dollas”… and in their frist day back on the job, they took out the tag champs and they will soon be right back where they belong: on top of the tag team division.
The Usos come out and say that they deserve to be the #1 contenders because they eliminated Jimmy Uso in the battle royale last week on Raw and PTP are trying to leapfrog them for their rightful title shot. Then the Brain Trust come out and point out they should be the #1 contenders because they eliminated Jey Uso from the battle royale and they accuse both PTP and the Colons of trying to leapfrog them for their rightful title shot. Then Mark Henry and Big E. Langston come out and point out that, by the Colons and the Brain Trust’s logic- and the Brain Trust are always telling us how smart they are, so we can be assured that their logic must be correct- the rightful #1 contenders to the tag title should be Mark & Big E., who eliminated both the Colons and the Brain Trust from the battle royale last week on Raw.
Steph comes out and announces that she has a solution to this conundrum: Over the course of the next week, there will be a short tournament on WWE TV to determine the #1 contenders for the tag team titles. There will be one first-round match on Main Event, one first-round match on Smackdown, and then the winners will face off on Raw to determine who will challenge the Usos at Payback.

INTERNATIONAL AIRSTRIKE 2.0 vs. SETH ROLLINS & DEAN AMBROSE-
Seth plays the babyface in peril, still selling his back injuries from last week. Airstrike win clean in twenty minutes, with Neville pinning Seth after a Red Arrow. After Airstrike have gone to the back, the Wyatt Family attack Seth and Dean, ending with Bray and Brodus forcing a beaten-down Dean to watch Ryback and Harper giving Seth a double-powerbomb throwing him off the stage (and onto something down below that is gimmicked for safety). Bray tells Dean that this is what will happen to everyone he holds dear unless he rejoins the Wyatt Family.
The Wyatts celebrate their dastardly deed… but Brodus Clay does not join in the celebration. Instead, he stands at the edge of the stage and watches and medical personnel stretcher Seth away.

NXT PROMOTION MATCH: Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn vs. Wesley Blake & Buddy Murphy-
Zayn & Owens win clean in ten minutes.

THE EUROPEAN UNION (Wade Barrett & Antonio Cesaro) vs. JACK SWAGGER & KANE (w/R-Truth)-
Barrett & Cesaro work perfectly together and win clean in twenty minutes when Barrett KO’s Swagger with the Barrett Barrage. After the match, Barrett cheap-shots Cesaro with a Barrett Barrage to the back of the head, knocking him out. Barrett then poses with the WWE Title.

CODY RHODES vs. JOHN CENA-
Cody wins clean in twenty-five minutes


On Monday night, WWE.com reports that Seth Rollins will be out for a few months after being powerbombed off the stage by the Wyatt Family on Raw.

On Tuesday morning, WWE.com reports that Daniel Bryan has been suspended indefinitely for attacking WWE officials. Violence against non-combat personnel such as announcers and referees WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.
Booked for tonight’s Main Event is the first of two first-round matches in a tournament to determine the #1 contenders for the WWE World Tag Team Titles at Payback. Tonight’s match will feature the Brain Trust taking on the Colons. The show will also see the other two teams in the tournament, Mark Henry & Big E. Langston and the Prime Time Players, in non-tournament action, as well as a Divas match pitting Natalya Neidhart against Summer Rae, stemming from their backstage altercation on Raw.

Miz spends a lot more time on Twitter with the “#DoYourJobNattie” Tweets.


Main Event: (5/5/2015)
PRIME TIIME PLAYERS vs. TWO JOBBERS-
The jobbers would be Blake & Murphy under masks (can’t use them as themselves because they just lost a match to Zayn and Owens stipulating that the winners would be on the main roster, so it would be dumb to give the losers a main roster match before the winners get one). PTP squash them.

NAYALYA NEIDHART vs. SUMMER RAE (w/Tamina)-
Nattie dominates for a few minutes before Tamina interferes for the DQ and beats her up a bit.
MARK HENRY & BIG E. LANGSTON vs. INTERNATIONAL AIRSTRIKE 2.0-
Mark & Big E. win clean in ten minutes when Big E. pins Gabriel after the Big Ending. The pace of the match would be slow because Airstrike have already wrestled a twenty minute match at this taping.

Brodus Clay comes out to the ring on his own and cuts a promo expressing great remorse for his part in the actions that led to Seth Rollins’ injury. He announces that he has finally realized that he never was a monster until Bray Wyatt made him into one. Everyone has flaws. Bray doesn’t help you conquer your “inner monster.” He just exploits your flaws to control you.

Ashley Flair cuts a backstage promo announcing that she did just what Paige asked: she talked to Steph and got them a match booked for Smackdown. It will be WWE Divas Champion Ashley Flair… AND BRIE BELLA taking on Paige and a partner of Paige’s choice. Ashley laughs smugly to herself, thinking she has outsmarted Paige and has found a way around giving her a one-on-one match.

TAG TITLE #1 CONTENDERSHIP TOURNAMENT FIRST-ROUND MATCH: The Brain Trust (w/Naomi) vs. The Colons (w/Rosa Mendes)-
They brawl on the outside and we wind up with a double count-out in ten minutes.


Nattie vs. Tamina is announced as this week’s featured match on Superstars.


Tonight’s Smackdown should be a big one. Due to the Colons and Brain Trust going to a double countout in their match on Main Event, tonight’s scheduled “first-round” match in the tag team #1 contendership tournament between the Prime Time Players and Mark Henry & Big E. Langston will effectively be the tournament finals and will determine who will challenge the Usos at Payback.
We will also hear from World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton for the first time since his suspension. Orton will also be in action in our main event when he faces Dolph Ziggler.
We will also see Divas tag team action as WWE Divas Champion Ashley Flair teams up with Brie Bella to face Paige and a partner of Paige’s choice.
Also signed for tonight is WWE United States Champion The Miz facing David Otunga, and Kalisto vs. Adrian Neville, Michael McGillicutty vs. Justin Gabriel, and Wade Barrett & the Colons vs. Dean Ambrose, Kofi Kingston, & Big Show.


Smackdown: (5/7/2015)- Ottawa, ON

Smackdown opens with Randy Orton, who insists that his suspension was BS but that Daniel Bryan’s was completely warranted because Bryan actually attacked people and did so outside of the confines of a match while Randy didn’t actually hurt anyone, and his actions were within the confines of the match. No matter what Steph said last week in her interview with Cole, in Orton’s booked, he proved that Daniel Bryan is weak and doesn’t deserve another title shot.

KEVIN OWENS & SAMI ZAYN vs. DASH WILDER & TYE DILLENGER-
Owens & Zayn squash the NXT guys.

Renee Young is interviewing Paige backstage. She asks her if she has found a tag partner for tonight’s match yet. Paige says she hasn’t because the match is BS and if Ashley had any guts, she’d face her one-on-one. Alicia Fox shows up and volunteers to be Paige’s partner, and Paige grudgingly accepts.

DEAN AMBROSE, BIG SHOW, & KOFI KINGSTON vs. WADE BARRETT & THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes)-
Heels win clean in fifteen minutes when Wade KO’s Kofi with a Barrett Barrage. After the match, the three remaining members of the Wyatt Family (Bray, Harper, and Ryback) attack Dean, Big Show, and the still-groggy Kofi. They beat them down until Brodus Clay comes out with a steel chair to make the save. We get a VERY tense stare-down between Brodus and the three babyfaces until Big Show offers Brodus a handshake.

MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY vs. JUSTIN GABRIEL (w/Adrian Neville)-
McGillicutty wins clean in ten minutes. He then announces that because he pinned US Champion The Miz on Raw, he wants a title shot at Payback!

Cesaro cuts a backstage promo saying that Wade got in a nice cheapshot on Raw, but how well does Wade think he will fare at Payback, when the guy he’s attacking doesn’t have his back turned?

Byron Saxton is interviewing Nattie about her match with Tamina on Superstars. She is quickly interrupted by The Miz, who once again yells at Nattie for not coming out to ringside to be his valet on Raw, and claims that this cost him his match against McGillicutty.
Nattie finally gives in and says “okay Miz. If you want me to be your valet tonight, I will be.”

ALICIA FOX & PAIGE vs. BRIE BELLA & ASHLEY FLAIR-
Ashley spends the whole match ducking Paige. The heels get the heat on Fox. Fox makes a comeback which leads to a double-down. Both women crawl for their corners. Fox manages to tag Paige in first, and as soon as this happens, Ashley gets down off the apron so Brie can’t tag her in and force her to face Paige. Paige locks the Stretch Muffler in on Brie and gives Ashley a death-stare as she cranks the hold, making Brie tap furiously. Ashley quickly grabs her title and runs off through the crowd.

Bray Wyatt cuts a backstage promo in which he says that Brodus Clay will be dealt with the same way all who desert his message are dealt with. Just like he is doing to Dean Ambrose, Bray vows to take away anything and anyone that Brodus Clay holds dear unless Brodus returns to the family.
Bray also says that the defections of Ambrose and Brodus will not stop his message. He says that he has his eyes on certain members of the WWE roster- men whose anger will control them if they do not let Bray teach them how to control it.

THE MIZ (w/Natalya Neidhart) vs. DAVID OTUNGA (w/Brain Trust)-
Miz is, predictably, a bit of a dick about Nattie being his valet, insisting that she wear a Miz t-shirt and do valet stuff like hold the ropes open for him, but he isn’t a total ass about it by insisting that she twirl or anything like that.
The match itself is surprisingly clean. The finish comes when Otunga hits his finisher near the ropes and goes for a pin. Miz gets his foot on the ropes, but before the referee notices, Nattie pushes Miz’s foot off of the ropes, resulting in Miz getting pinned. Miz starts to yell at Nattie who just walks off with a smug, satisfied look on her face, tossing the Miz t-shirt into the crowd on her way up the ramp.

Renee Young interviews Cody Rhodes backstage, asking him if he has any comments on Orton’s comments earlier tonight or on Daniel Bryan’s suspension. Cody reiterates that he doesn’t give a sh*t about what Orton was going to do to AJ or what Bryan did to Orton or anything anyone has to say about it. In fact, he is starting to get annoyed that everyone is focusing on this BS instead of what they should be focusing on, which is the fact that he is just ten days away from reclaiming his World Heavyweight Title.

TAG TEAM #1 CONTENDERSHIP “FINALS” MATCH: The Prime Time Players vs. Mark Henry & Big E. Langston-
The match never gets started because as soon as PTP come out, the Usos make their return and attack them. PTP manage to run away, and the Usos call them cowards. We then get a quick staredown between the Usos and Mark & Big E., who are upset that the Usos just cost them a possible title shot.
Byron Saxton interviews John Cena asking Cena if he thinks his recent streak of losses in big matches might mean that he is getting too old and just can’t keep up anymore. Cena assures Byron that this is not true, and he is just in a slump right now.
Sylvester Lefort shows up and insists that what Cena really needs is a good manager. Cena turns down Lefort’s offer to manage him, saying he has seen Lefort on NXT and if he wanted a manager, he’d like it to be someone who isn’t so much of a scumbag. Cena walks off, and Lefort mutters something about making Cena regret this.

KANE, JACK SWAGGER & R-TRUTH vs. HEATH SLATER, ZACK RYDER, & DAMIEN SANDOW (w/Brain Trust)-
Brain Trust run away as soon as Kane, Swagger, and Truth start to dominate, leaving Ryder and Slater to be destroyed 3-on-2. They take it so far that they are DQed for excessive punishment, which only makes them angrier. Big Show and Kofi come out and plead with them not to join Bray Wyatt’s cause. Kane, Truth, and Swagger tell Kofi and Big Show to shove it… and they say that that goes for Bray as well. Their anger fuels them. They don’t need anyone else to teach them how to control it.

Dean Ambrose cuts a backstage promo saying that he is sick and tired of Bray Wyatt, and putting Seth Rollins- his best friend and the man who rescued him from Bray’s brainwashing- out of action for months was the last straw. Dean wants this settled once and for all: At Payback, he wants to face Bray Wyatt. If he wins, Bray must leave him and Seth and Kofi and Big Show alone… but if Bray wins, Dean will rejoin the Wyatt Family. And just to make sure that this ends the way it should- with just Dean and Bray- Dean wants the match to take place inside Hell in a Cell!

KALISTO vs. ADRIAN NEVILLE (w/Justin Gabriel)-
Roman Reigns is on commentary. He says he is scouting Kalisto, but also promises to have a “surprise” for him after the match. Kalisto wins clean in ten minutes. After the match, Roman gets into the ring and tells Kalisto that he just want to Steph and got Kalisto an IC Title shot at Payback, which he deserves for beating Roman clean on Raw.

RANDY ORTON vs. DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman)-
Orton wins clean in twenty minutes with an RKO.


Superstars: (5/8/2015)

Our featured match is Nattie vs. Tamina. Most of the build focuses on Tamina, who has been out of action for twenty-one months. She reminds us that she is still owed a rematch for the Divas Title. She explains her alliance with Summer Rae simply as Summer is paying her money. Summer cuts some promos about how Tamina will destroy Nattie and the entire Divas division will be in fear of her.
Nattie’s promos focus more on her as a tough veteran, but also on her as a wife dealing with her husband’s injury.
NATALYA NEIDHART vs. TAMINA (w/Summer Rae)-
Tamina wins clean in fifteen minutes.


WWE.com announces that a three-way trios match has been signed for Payback: it will be Big Show, Kofi Kingston, & Brodus Clay vs. Kane, Jack Swagger, & R-Truth vs. The Wyatt Family. The fact that Bray Wyatt has accepted this match seems to indicate that he will not be accepting Dean Ambrose’s challenge.

Over the weekend, PTP put out a video declaring that the only way they’ll fight the Usos is if the Usos agree to put the tag titles on the line against them at Payback. The Usos put out a video agreeing to do so.
WWE.com announces that Monday’s Raw will have the contract signing between the Usos and PTP.


Raw: (5/11/2015)- Cincinnati, OH

Raw opens with the Colons, the Brain Trust, and even Big E. and Mark Henry all in the ring and complaining that the Prime Time Players side-stepped the entire tag team tournament that failed colossally and that PTP don’t deserve a title shot any more than any of them do. Steph comes out and admits that they have something of a point, but she saw money in the Usos vs. PTP match and both sides wanted it so she decided to book it. What she will do for them, however, is book a set of “win-and-in” matches this week where each team will have a match that if they win, they will advance to Payback to determine the #1 contenders to the WWE World Tag Team Titles on May 31st and the WWE Network exclusive three-hour special event: CyberSlam!
Steph announces that the first “win-and-in” match will be Mark Henry & Big E. Langston vs. Kofi Kingston & Big Show… and that match will take place right after this commercial break!

“WIN-AND-IN MATCH”: Mark Henry & Big E. Langston vs. Kofi Kingston & Big Show (w/Dean Ambrose)-
Mark & Big E. win clean in ten minutes to advance to the #1 contendership match this Sunday at Payback.

We get a video package putting over Zayn and Owens and their accomplishments in NXT, as well their BFF status.

We go backstage to Renee Young, who is standing by with Natalya. Renee asks her why she cost Miz his match on Smackdown by pushing his foot of the ropes, and wants to know if she has any second regrets about changing the outcome of a match in such a heelish way. Nattie seems a bit surprised by Renee’s second question and thinks for a moment, but before she can say anything, she is jumped from behind by Brie Bella who beats her up.
When we come back from commercial, Nattie is being looked over by a trainer while Renee is here to report on her injuries. It turns out she just suffered some bruises, but no real damage. Miz shows up to check on her condition but Nattie yells at him to leave her alone.

HEATH SLATER vs. ANTONIO CESARO-
Cesaro wins clean in four minutes by making Slater tap to the Liontamer, which he has now named the “Cesaro Stretch.”

KALISTO vs. PRIMO COLON (w/Epico Colon & Rosa Mendes)-
Roman Reigns is on commentary. He says he is scouting Kalisto. The announcers push both the IC Title match at Payback (with the build being “can Roman deal with Lucha?”) and the Colons “win-and-in” match, which will take place on Smackdown against International Airstrike 2.0. Kalisto wins clean in nine minutes with the Salida Del Sol.

Randy Orton cuts an in-ring promo announcing that he will no longer be taking any questions about his suspension or his actions at Backlash. He is done with it and ready to move on, just like Daniel Bryan should have done. Cody Rhodes comes out and cuts a promo claiming that Randy Orton couldn’t beat him without help from Sheamus, so this time, with Sheamus on the shelf thanks to Cody, he will regain his World Heavyweight Title. Orton takes exception to these comments and they have a brief stare-down before security comes out to break it up.

We get a quick backstage interview with John Cena to hype up his main event tag team match tonight. He is once again interrupted by Sylvester Lefort who asks Cena is he has changed his mind about taking him on as a manager. Cena once again tells him “no.”

Paige comes out to the ring and calls Ashley Flair a coward for being afraid to face her one-on-one. Ashley comes out to the stage and tells Paige she doesn’t deserve to be in the ring with her. Paige accuses Ashley of running away scared, “just like daddy used to do whenever Sting or Dusty Rhodes or Hulk Hogan showed up.” This infuriates Ashley, who agrees to give Paige a match, right here, right now!

PAIGE vs. ASHLEY FLAIR-
They go for about ten minutes with Paige controlling most of it until Ashley has had enough and rolls out of the ring, grabs her title, and runs away for the intentional count-out loss.

WADE BARRETT vs. ZACK RYDER-
Barrett wins clean in five minutes with the Barrett Barrage and vows to knock Cesaro out and win the WWE Title at Payback.

David Otunga comes out and demands that he get a US Title shot tonight because he pinned Miz on Smackdown. Michael McGillicutty comes out and says that he should get a US Title shot first because he pinned Miz last week on Raw. Steph comes out and decrees that McGillicutty will get his shot at Payback as he requested last week, while Otunga will wait until the next night on Raw.

BRODUS CLAY vs. DAMIEN SANDOW (w/Brain Trust)-
The match ends in a DQ in about twenty seconds as the Wyatt Family assaults Brodus. Dean, Kofi, and Big Show come out to make the save, but they are all taken out by NXT’s Erick Rowan, who is wielding a steel chair. Rowan then gives Brodus multiple con-chair-tos using a chair and the steps. Bray then cuts a promo saying that the team representing the Wyatt Family at Payback will be Harper, Ryback, and Rowan, whereas he will be accepting Dean Ambrose’s challenge for Payback.
Brodus is stretchered off.

Dolph Ziggler comes out and cuts a promo putting Paul Heyman over. Sylvester Lefort comes out to try to convince Ziggler to leave Heyman’s stable and join his own. Dolph laughs in his face, and the angry and humiliated Lefort slinks to the back. Dolph then continues with his promo demanding a top-tier opponent for Payback.

Steph announces that Ashley Flair will defend the Divas Title against Paige this Sunday at Payback.

Next we get the contract signing for the tag title match between the Usos and PTP. PTP are clearly afraid of the very angry Usos and demand that The Usos not be allowed in the ring until PTP have signed the contract, and then that the Usos wait for PTP to leave the ring before getting in to sign the contract themselves. The Usos agree to these stipulations, knowing that it is only a matter of a few short days before they’ll be able to get their hands on PTP.
PTP sign the contract, then slip out of the ring. The Usos get into the ring to sign the contracts while PTP head to the back… but once the contracts are signed PTP turn around and run back down the ramp and attack the Usos from behind.

JOHN CENA & INTERNATIONAL AIRSTRIKE 2.0 vs. TEAM ANGER (Kane, Jack Swagger, & R-Truth)-
Kane, Truth, & Swagger win clean in twenty minutes when Truth pins Gabriel. The announcers put over Team Anger’s chances of winning the three-way trios match at Payback.

WWE.com reports that Brodus Clay suffered serious head trauma due to the assault by Erick Rowan of the Wyatt Family and has been forced to retire. As of this moment, the three-way trios match at Payback appears to be off.

On Tuesday morning, WWE.com reports that Dolph Ziggler will get his wish at Payback. He demanded top-tier competition, so he has been signed to face off against John Cena!


Main Event: (5/12/2015)
MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY vs. HEATH SLATER-
McGillicutty wins clean in seven minutes.

ALICIA FOX vs. NIKKI BELLA-
Fox wins clean in ten minutes with the moonsault.
Summer Rae is on commentary with Tamina standing behind her, arms crossed over her chest, looking menacing. She buries Fox for being nowhere near as good a bodyguard as Tamina and vows that Fox will soon pay for her incompetence.

“WIN-AND-IN” MATCH: Brain Trust (w/Naomi) vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn-
Brain Trust win by cheating in seventeen minutes when Otunga pins Zayn after a low blow.



Signed for Smackdown is a HUGE ten man tag team main event that will see some of the champions who are defending their titles at Payback team up to face their challengers. We will see WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro, World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton WWE World Tag Team Champions the Usos, and WWE Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns team up to take on Wade Barrett, Cody Rhodes, the Prime Time Players, and Kalisto.

Smackdown: (5/14/2015)- Evansville, IN


“WIN-AND-IN” MATCH: The Colons (w/Rosa Mendes) vs. International Airstrike 2.0-
Colons win clean in fifteen minutes.

Brie Bella cuts a backstage promo in which she gives no explanation for her attack on Nattie on Raw, but does challenge Nattie to a one-on-one match at Payback. The announcers will later tell us that Nattie has accepted Brie’s challenge.


MARK HENRY & BIG E. LANGSTON vs. KEVIN OWENS & SAMI ZAYN-
Mark & Big E. win clean in twelve minutes when Henry pins Owens after the World’s Strongest Slam. Henry & Big E. give Zayn and Owens handshakes after the match and put them over on the mic.

John Cena cuts a quick backstage promo once again promising that his match against Ziggler at Payback will be a new start for him.

MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY & ZACK RYDER vs. BRAIN TRUST (w/Naomi)-
Miz is on commentary and puts both Otunga and McGillicutty over. Miz also makes sure to remind everyone that he went to check up on Nattie’s condition after the heinous and completely unprovoked backstage attack by Brie Bella on Raw.
Brain Trust wins clean when Otunga pins Ryder.

Kofi, Big Show, and Ambrose cut promos backstage. Kofi and Big Show announce that they have found a third man to be their partner so the three-way trios match between themselves, Team Anger, and the Wyatt Family is back on.
Dean cuts a promo hyping up his big, high-stakes Hell in a Cell match with Bray. He puts over Seth Rollins’ friendship and how much it has helped him, and says that he is doing this so that Bray won’t harass him and those close to him forever.

PAIGE & ALICIA FOX vs. ASHLEY FLAIR & CAMERON-
Paige manages to lock Ashley in the Stretch Muffler and has her tapping but at that moment, the referee is distracted by the presence of Summer Rae and Tamina, who have come out to attack Alicia Fox, causing a DQ.

Dolph Ziggler cuts a backstage promo reminding us all that he has beaten Cena a bunch of times this year and says he will easily do so again at Payback.

ANTONIO CESARO, RANDY ORTON, ROMAN REIGNS, & THE USOS vs. WADE BARRETT, CODY RHODES, KALISTO, & THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS-

PAYBACK RUNDOWN

WWE Payback 2015: (5/17/2015)- Baltimore, MD


WWE TITLE MATCH: Antonio Cesaro(c) vs. Wade Barrett
The "best striker in the WWE" looks to knock out his former friend and take the WWE Title!

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH: Randy Orton(c) vs. Cody Rhodes
Cody blames both of his losses in World Heavyweight Title matches against Orton this winter on Sheamus. Now that Sheamus is on the shelf, will Cody recapture the World Heavyweight Title?

HELL IN A CELL MATCH: Bray Wyatt vs. Dean Ambrose
It all comes down to this! If Wyatt wins, Dean must rejoin the Wyatt Family. If Dean wins, Wyatt must leave Dean, Big Show, Kofi, and Dean's best friend the injured Seth Rollins alone forever.

WWE INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE MATCH: Roman Reigns(c) vs. Kalisto
Roman Reigns has overcome many obstacles in his eight months as champion. Now he faces a new obstacle in the unfamiliar Lucha Libra style of his opponent. Will Roman's "heart of a champion" be enough to overcome this new obstacle, or will the young Luchador Kalisto get his first taste of WWE gold?

WWE WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: The Usos(c) vs. The Prime Time Players
The Prime Time Players jumped the Usos from the behind. Now the Usos are looking for revenge, and are glad to put their titles on the line if that's what it will take to get it.

Paige finally gets what she wants: a chance to fight the champion and take her title.

WWE UNITED STATES TITLE MATCH: The Miz(c) vs. Michael McGillicutty
Miz's seeming obsession with Natalya Neidhart being his valet has already cost him a non-title match against McGillicutty. Will it cost him his title as well?

TRIPLE THREAT TRIOS MATCH: The Wyatt Family vs. Team Anger vs. Big Show, Kofi Kingston, & a Mystery Partner
Tensions between these three groups have been high for months, but now they have finally boiled over into what promises to be a wild three-way match. Who will stand tall at the end of the night? And who will the mystery partner be?

JOHN CENA vs. DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman)
Two of WWE's best renew their rivalry. Will Cena finally get the better of Dolph? Or will Dolph continue the dominance he has shown in their matches so far this year?

NATALYA NEIDHART vs. BRIE BELLA
Brie attacked Nattie without provocation on Raw. Now Nattie gets her chance for revenge!

NATALYA NEIDHART vs. BRIE BELLA-
The match goes about two minutes before NXT’s Wesley Blake comes out of the crowd and trips Nattie up and causes her to do a face-plant, right in front of the referee who calls for the DQ. Brie starts to put the boots to Nattie, then Blake gets into the ring and picks Nattie up for a powerbomb, but The Miz comes running out to make the save. The announcers condemn Blake for trying to powerbomb a woman and put over The Miz’s uncharacteristic display of chivalry.

TRIPLE THREAT TRIOS MATCH: Team Anger vs. The Wyatt Family vs. Kofi Kingston, Big Show, & SIN CARA-
The babyfaces’ mystery partner is Sin Cara, who is returning after being put on the shelf for seven months by the Wyatt Family. The match is a wild and crazy brawl with bodies flying all over the place. At about the eleven minute mark we get a ref bump, at which point Sin Cara grabs a chair and starts to absolutely destroy the Wyatts with vicious chairshots. Kofi and Big Show look on, completely stunned, while Kane, Truth, and Swagger look on and almost seem impressed. Big Show snaps out of it and pulls the chair away from Cara, who angrily glares at him before waking up the ref and then pinning Ryback.

WWE DIVAS TITLE MATCH: Ashley Flair(c) vs. Paige-
They go hard for seventeen minutes with Paige getting dominating a good chunk of the match and working over Ashley’s leg, but Ashley manages to steal the win with a roll-up with her feet on the ropes for illegal leverage. Ashley grabs her title and high-tails it out of there while Paige stews in the ring.

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH: Randy Orton(c) vs. Cody Rhodes-
They go completely clean for fourteen minutes until we get a ref bump and Daniel Bryan jumps the barricade and nails Orton with a Busaiku Knee, then starts to kick the crap out of him. Security shows up to pull Dragon off of Orton. Cody then wakes up the ref, nails Orton with the Cross Rhodes for good measure, and pins him to win the World Heavyweight Title.

WWE TITLE MATCH: Antonio Cesaro(c) vs. Wade Barrett-
Cesaro wins clean to retain the title, kicking out after taking a Barrett Barrage and eventually making Barrett tap out to the Cesaro Stretch in twenty-two minutes.

HELL IN A CELL MATCH IN WHICH IF BRAY WINS, DEAN MUST REJOIN THE WYATT FAMILY, BUT IF DEAN WINS, THE WYATTS MUST LEAVE ROLLINS, AMBROSE, BIG SHOW, & KOFI ALONE-
We get a violent, brutal match with Bray taunting Dean that if Dean loses control and becomes too violent, the “hardcore monster” within him will once again be unleashed and he will need to return to Bray to help him “tame” it. Dean picks up the victory in twenty-two very violent minutes to win the feud.
Hold #712: ARM BAR!

On tap for tonight’s Raw is all of the fallout from Payback, plus Dean Ambrose vs. Damien Sandow, WrestleMania rematch between Wade Barrett and Big Show, David Otunga challenges The Miz for the US Title, and Alicia Fox tries to get a measure of revenge against Summer Rae and Tamina for attacking her on Smackdown when she faces Summer one-on-one.
Also, Raw will feature an opener that you do not want to miss: WWE World Tag Team Champions the Usos, John Cena, and the freshly called-up Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn vs. Sin Cara, Kalisto, Kofi Kingston, and International Airstrike 2.0!

Raw: (5/18/2015)- Richmond, VA


JOHN CENA, THE USOS, KEVIN OWENS, & SAMI ZAYN vs. INTERNATIONAL AIRSTRIKE 2.0, SIN CARA, KALISTO, & KOFI KINGSTON (w/Big Show)-
They go for about fifteen minutes of fast-paced action. Cena stays on the apron for a good chunk of it because he will be working on Main Event against Big Show (which the announcers let us know has been signed). The announcers also put over what a big deal it is for newcomers to the main roster like Zayn and Owens to be in the ring with top names. They also put over Cara’s new-found aggressiveness, which is what eventually wins his team the match for his team, as he almost relentlessly works over Zayn’s arm and makes Sami tap to an arm lock of some sort.

Randy Orton comes out and “demands” to know what Steph is going to do about the fact that Daniel Bryan, who is supposed to be suspended, screwed him out of his World Heavyweight Title last night. Steph comes out and announces Dragon is in big trouble for violating his suspension. Steph tells Randy to take the night off and go home because we all know how crazy Randy can get when he gets angry and we don’t want that to happen.

ALICIA FOX vs. SUMMER RAE (w/Tamina Snuka)-
Fox controls most of the match, but not all of it. The finish comes at around the seven minute mark when Tamina interferes on behalf of Summer for the DQ. Fox is left laying while Summer sands over her and gloats and Tamina stands over her and just looks menacing.

Miz cuts a backstage promo hyping up his US Title defense against David Otunga tonight. As he finishes speaking, Nattie comes up to him and thanks him for saving her from Wesley Blake last night. She says that if Miz still really wants her to be his valet, he has earned it… at least for this one match.

Sylvester Lefort comes out with Rusev and Lana. He cuts a promo saying that he told both Cena and Ziggler he would make them sorry for turning down his offer, and now he would like to introduce us to the instrument through which he will do that: Alexander Rusev (and his translator: Lana). He says that he has arranged a “demonstration” tonight so that the people who are stupid enough to have not ordered Payback on PPV or subscribed to the WWE Network will get just a small taste of what Rusev did to Cena and Ziggler last night…

ALEXANDER RUSEV (w/Sylvester Lefort & Lana) vs. A JOBBER-
Rusev obliterates the jobber. At one point Lefort grabs a mic and says that because this is a “demonstration” he would like to demonstrate some of the more devastating moves in Rusev’s arsenal. The purpose of this is to both let Lefort be a dick and to get over Lana’s translator gimmick by having Lefort yell out a move in English and have Lana translate it to Bulgarian for Rusev, who then hits the move. The signal for Accolade is still, of course, “RUSEV: CRUSH!”

Dean Ambrose cuts a backstage promo saying he is glad to finally be rid of Bray Wyatt. He says he can’t wait for his good friend Seth Rollins to come back from his injury, but until Seth is ready, Dean will focus his attention on getting back the US Title… and that path starts tonight by going through Damien Sandow.

John Cena cuts a backstage promo saying that he wants to get his hands on Rusev for assaulting him last night at Payback.

WWE UNITED STATES TITLE MATCH: The Miz(c) (w/Natalya Neidhart) vs. David Otunga (w/the Brain Trust)-
They go for a few minutes until we get a spot where Naomi reaches into the ring and trips Miz up (the ref doesn’t see it). Nattie runs over and takes Naomi out with a big clothesline. The referee goes over to investigate this commotion, and as he does so, Damien Sandow tries to sneak into the ring to attack Miz, but Nattie points this out to the ref, who turns around and catches Sandow in the ring and ejects him from ringside.
Otunga manages to get the advantage on Miz and hits him with the Verdict for the pin. Miz gets his foot on the ropes, but the referee doesn’t see it. Thankfully, Nattie was there to bring this whole story full circle by calling this fact to the ref’s attention before the ref’s hand came down the third time. Miz then made a comeback and won cleanly.
After the match, Wesley Blake and Brie Bella come out and attack Miz. Nattie runs over to protect Miz, and just one big forearm shot to each heel is enough to knock them down and make them bail. The announcers comment that it looks like whatever this strange vendetta that this odd pairing seems to have against Nattie is now targeting Miz as well because Miz saved Nattie from them last night.

Dolph Ziggler cuts a backstage promo saying that HE wants to be the first one to get his hands on Rusev, and if John Cena knows what’s good for him, he’ll stay out of Dolph’s way.

PAIGE vs. A JOBBER-
Paige destroys the jobber in under a minute. She then grabs a mic and demands that Ashley get her ass out here and give her another title shot because Ashley cheated last night at Payback. Ashley comes out onto the stage and asks Paige “you want another shot at my Divas Title? Right here, right now?... Well if you want another title shot, all you need to do is… get to the back of the line, loser.”
Ashley turns and walks backstage. An angry Paige charges after her, but security gets between them before Paige can attack Ashley.

Bray Wyatt cuts a quick backstage promo. He explains that the reason Steph is letting him cut promos now is because she thinks that Dean Ambrose leaving the Wyatt Family and defeating Bray has shown everyone that they don’t need Bray or his message anymore so no one is at risk of falling prey to Bray’s message and joining the Wyatt Family. Bray acknowledges that he lost his war with Dean Ambrose, but that doesn’t negate the successes that Dean had while under his tutelage. Bray asserts that his message is stronger than ever.

MARK HENRY, BIG E. LANGSTON, & MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY vs. TEAM ANGER (Kane, Jack Swagger, & R-Truth)-
Team Anger win clean in seven minutes, getting the heat on McGillicutty and finishing him off via chokeslam from Kane before he can even make a hot tag.

WADE BARRETT vs. BIG SHOW (w/Kofi Kingston)-
Big Show wins clean in twelve minutes, pinning Wade after a chokeslam.

Cody Rhodes cuts a backstage promo saying that Randy Orton can blame things on Daniel Bryan all he wants, but to Cody, the only thing that matters is that he is once again the World Heavyweight Champion.

DEAN AMBROSE vs. DAMIEN SANDOW (w/Brain Trust)-
They go for about ten minutes, but as Dean makes his comeback, we get a ref bump and Otunga starts to interfere. Soon afterwards, Sin Cara races down to the ring with a chair. Having seen what Cara did last night the Brain Trust runs away… but then Cara starts to beat the sh*t out of Dean with the chair. Dean is all but unconscious by the time Cara is done and Cara walks away. The Brain Trust come back out, and Otunga revives the ref while Sandow covers Ambrose to pick up the win. The announcers are completely baffled as to why Cara, who joined Kofi and Big Show to fight the Wyatts last night, would attack a man who was also aligned against Bray Wyatt.

THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS vs. ROMAN REIGNS & ANTONIO CESARO-
Cesaro & Roman win clean in fifteen minutes when Cesaro makes Darren Young tap out to the Cesaro Stretch.



Announced for WWE Main Event is Big Show vs. John Cena, Randy Orton vs. Damien Sandow, Wade Barrett vs. Kane, and The Colons vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn.


Main Event: (5/19/2015)

KEVIN OWENS & SAMI ZAYN vs. THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes)-
The Colons win by cheating in ten minutes after Rosa distracts the ref, allowing Primo to hit Zayn with a low blow and roll him up.

RANDY ORTON vs. DAMIEN SANDOW (w/Brain Trust)-
Orton refuses to wrestle until he has an answer from Steph about how she is going to rectify the situation with the World Heavyweight Title. Sandow wins by forfeit.

WADE BARRETT vs. KANE (w/R-Truth & Jack Swagger)-
Kane wins clean in ten minutes with a chokeslam.

JOHN CENA vs. BIG SHOW (w/Kofi Kingston)-
Big Show wins clean with the WMD in fifteen minutes.

WWE.com reports that Dean Ambrose has completed all of his medical tests and the doctors say he will be out of action for a few weeks after the shocking attack by Sin Cara on Raw. As friends of both men, Big Show and Kofi Kingston have tried to reach out to Sin Cara to ask for an explanation, but have so far been given the cold shoulder.
WWE.com reports that John Cena will be given the chance to get some revenge on Rusev as they face off on Smackdown. Dolph Ziggler will be given that same chance when he gets to face Rusev next week on Raw!
Also on Smackdown, The Wyatt Family will face #1 contenders Mark Henry & Big E. Langston, Big Show will face R-Truth, WWE Divas Champion Ashley Flair will face Natalya Neidhart, and WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro will once again team up with WWE Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns, this time for face International Airstrike 2.0.



Smackdown: (5/21/2015)- Norfolk, VA

KEVIN OWENS & SAMI ZAYN vs. THE USOS-
Usos win clean in eight minutes, but show Zayn and Owens respect after the match.

SIN CARA vs. HEATH SLATER-
Cara squashes Slater in two minutes, winning with his new armlock. Big Show and Kofi come out after the match to try to get an answer out of him for why he attacked Dean Ambrose, but he ignores them.

WADE BARRETT vs. KANE (w/Jack Swagger & R-Truth)-
Kane wins clean in nine minutes with a chokeslam.

Renee Young interviews Nattie backstage. Renee puts Nattie over for being very professional and being nice to Miz on Raw. Nattie says that “one good turn deserves another” and between Miz saving her at Payback and her own misdeeds causing Otunga to get that title shot in the first place, she felt she owed it to Miz.
Renee next asks Nattie for a medical update on Tyson Kidd. Nattie says he is doing well, but is still a few months away from returning to the ring, so she is on her own out there for now.
Renee finally asks Nattie for some comments about her non-title match with Ashley Flair tonight. Nattie says that the circumstances surrounding her loss in her title shot against Ashley last month at Backlash were a bit controversial but in the end, her loss was due to her own loss of concentration, so she understands why she isn’t getting a title match… but that doesn’t mean that she won’t use this as an opportunity to prove that she deserves another shot at the Divas Title.

KALISTO vs. DAMIEN SANDOW (w/Brain Trust)-
Sandow wins clean in nine minutes.

JOHN CENA vs. ALEXANDER RUSEV (w/Sylvester Lefort & Lana)-
They go for about three minutes before Dolph Ziggler runs in and attacks Rusev to cause a DQ. Cena and Ziggler start arguing, and eventually Dolph takes a swing at Cena. The two of them start to brawl, and this allows Rusev to recover and once again beat them both up while Lana and Lefort laugh.

NATALYA NEIDHART vs. ASHLEY FLAIR-
Ashley enters first, and the announcers use her entrance to discuss who could be in line for a title shot. The babyface announcer pushes Paige, and Nattie if she can win here. The heel tries to shut down any claims that Paige deserves a title shot by repeating Ashley’s comments from Raw: Paige lost, so now she needs to get to the back of the line. The babyface announcer responds that Paige only lost because Ashley cheated, and the heel responds with the standard heel “a win is a win no matter how you come by it” logic.
The match itself never gets underway, as Brie Bella jumps Nattie from behind on her way down the ramp. Wesley Blake comes out and restrains Nattie with a Full Nelson while Brie goes under the ring and gets a Kendo Stick (the babyface announcer yells angrily about how they must have planted it there earlier and had this trap planned all along). Brie takes a while to line Nattie up for the perfect shot, but while she is doing this, Miz charges down to the ring and the heels scamper even though Brie had a weapon. Miz checks on Nattie to see if she is okay (she is).

INTERNATIONAL AIRSTRIKE 2.0 vs. ROMAN REIGNS & ANTONIO CESARO-
Roman & Cesaro win clean in thirteen minutes. The announcers put over the fact that the WWE Champion and the IC Champion have now teamed up to defeat two of the top teams in the tag division this week.

Renee tells us that this week’s featured match on WWE Superstars will feature Cody Rhodes in action for the first time since his controversial World Heavyweight Title victory on Sunday. In this match he will face a huge challenge: John Cena.
Renee now asks Cody for some thoughts on this match. Cody says that Orton and others can whine all they want, but he is the World Heavyweight Champion right now, and he is going to make an example out of John Cena on Superstars.

ALICIA FOX vs. TAMINA SNUKA (w/Summer Rae)-
Summer Rae distracts Alicia at the beginning of the match, allowing Tamina to take control which she never loses. Fox gets one or two hope spots in, but Tamina is pretty dominant, winning cleanly in four minutes with a powerbomb. After the match, Tamina grabs a mic and says that if anyone deserves a shot at the Divas Title, it’s her. She has been owed a rematch or almost two years now.

BIG SHOW (w/Kofi Kingston) vs. R-TRUTH (w/Jack Swagger & Kane)-
Kane and Swagger encourage Truth to channel his aggression while Kofi urges him not to. Show wins clean in eight minutes with the WMD.

Steph comes out and makes an announcement regarding the situation with Cody Rhodes, Randy Orton, the World Heavyweight Title, and the suspended Daniel Bryan. She says that WWE officials had been considering reinstating Bryan from his indefinite suspension this week, but by violating his suspension at Payback, Bryan has forced them to reevaluate this decision and instead keep him out of action for even longer. She announces that Cody Rhodes will make his first defense of the World Heavyweight Title in ten days at CyberSlam, exclusively on the WWE Network… and he will do against Randy Orton… and that match will take place inside a steel cage to ensure that we have a clear winner and a clear loser. She also warns Daniel Bryan that if he is thinking of violating his suspension yet again, she will be forced to take drastic actions against him, and no one- not her, not the board of directors, not the fans, and certainly not Bryan himself- is going to be happy if that is what has to happen.

MARK HENRY & BIG E. LANGSTON vs. LUKE HARPER & RYBACK (w/the Wyatt Family)-
We get ten minutes of what is essentially a stalemate of big, strong men running into each other and hitting each other very hard. The babyfaces eventually get an advantage and Mark Henry directs Big E. to hit Harper with a big bodyslam in their corner and then tag him in. Big E. listens to his mentor, and s then shocked when Mark climbs to the top rope. Henry leaps off with a big splash and pins Luke Harper for the win. The announcers all mark out (pun intended) for Henry’s high flying.


Superstars: (5/22/2015)
Cena promos and video packages focus on his poor record over the last six months or so, especially in big matches.
Cody’s promos focus on the controversy surrounding his title victory, and how a win over John Cena would go a long way towards making him seem like a more deserving champion.

JOHN CENA vs. CODY RHODES-
Cody wins clean in twenty-five minutes.

On Sunday, WWE.com announces that Raw’s main event will be a #1 contendership match between Kane and Big Show (who have both been on winning streaks), with the winner going on to challenge Antonio Cesaro for the WWE Title at Cyber Slam.
In other CyberSlam news, WWE.com announces that, WWE General Manager Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley has followed through on a suggestion made to her by The Miz this past weekend and has booked an intergender tag team match with Natalya Neidhart & The Miz facing Brie Bella & Wesley Blake for CyberSlam.
Also on Raw, Dolph Ziggler will get his chance to go one-on-one with Alexander Rusev.

Raw: (5/25/2015)- Uniondale, NY

Raw opens with Steph coming out to hype up the main event #1 contendership match. She brings out first Kane and then Big Show, and as she bring each man out, she runs down the list of his career accomplishments, and then the list of his recent victories that have earned him his spot in this #1 contendership match. They are interrupted by Damien Sandow, who points out that in the past week, he has beaten Dean Ambrose, Randy Orton, and Kalisto- all big names- so he deserves to be in this #1 contendership match, too. She asks Kane and Big Show, and they both indicate they are okay with it, so Steph adds Sandow to the match.

ROMAN REIGNS vs. KOFI KINGSTON-
Roman wins clean in fifteen minutes with the spear.

NATALYA NEIDHART vs. ROSA MENDES (w/the Colons)-
Brie Bella & Wesley Blake come out to menace Nattie. Miz comes out and chases them away, but this distraction allows Rosa to roll Nattie up for the pin.

Byron Saxton interviews Randy Orton. He asks Orton if the fact that he has come back to work is a sign that Steph’s solution of giving him his World Heavyweight Title rematch against Cody Rhodes in a steel cage to prevent Daniel Bryan from interfering again is acceptable to Randy. Randy says that it is, and that without Daniel Bryan to interfere, he will regain the title that he never should have lost in the first place.
When we throw it back to the announcers, they plug that Orton’s return to the ring after his short strike will take place tomorrow night on Main Event, where he will face… JOHN CENA!

BIG E. LANGSTON vs. R-TRUTH (w/Jack Swagger & Kane)-
Mark Henry isn’t out here with Big E. because he is warming up for his match, which is next.
Big E. has the advantage until Truth forces him to the outside, at which point truth distracts the ref while Kane knocks him down and Swagger locks in the Patriot Act. Swagger lets the hold go before the ref sees, and Big E. barely makes it back into the ring to avoid being counted out. Truth continues the work on the ankle, but Big E. manages to make a short comeback and hit the Big Ending for the pin.

MARK HENRY vs. TITUS O’NEILL (w/Darren Young) vs. ADRIAN NEVILLE (w/Justin Gabriel)-
At the beginning of this match, we are told that Big E.’s ankle is currently being looked at by the trainers.
Stuff happens and they spill to the outside where, behind the referee’s back, Darren does quite a number on Mark Henry, repeatedly slamming his head into the steps and the ringpost, eventually leaving Mark slumped over on the steps.
Titus and Neville continue to fight for another few minutes before they wind up on the outside again, and when Darren tries to interfere again, Justin Gabriel runs over to stop him. While those two brawl away from ringside, Titus and Neville wind up back in the ring, and Titus counters on of Neville’s kicks and then rolls him into some sort of grounded leg submission like a knee bar. The hold is locked in for a while as Neville struggles to get closer to the ropes… and then we see Mark Henry pulling himself up onto the apron… and the going up to the top rope! MARK HENRY DIVES OFF THE TOP ROPE and lands in a big splash on Titus. Mark covers Titus, and Neville’s leg is too injured for him to break the pin up.

CODY RHODES vs. MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY-
Cody wins clean in ten minutes with the Cross Rhodes.

We go backstage to the trainer’s room for an update on Big E. Langston’s condition. Big E. tells us he will be fine to go by Smackdown. Mark Henry shows up and Big E. comments to Mark that he thought his dive tonight was really cool, but asks why Mark did it, considering that it is the sort of thing that he never does, and that he always tells Big E. is too much of a risk. Mark responds that sometimes you have to take risks to win matches, and in this case, Mark thought there was a better chance of him winning if he could do something unexpected like a big splash onto a man who wasn’t expecting it. Big E. nods understandingly, internalizing his mentor’s advice.

ALICIA FOX vs. NIKKI BELLA-
Summer Rae (with Tamina standing menacingly behind her) is on commentary and brags about how she and Tamina have beaten Alicia Fox up a few times recently. Fox wins clean in six minutes.

SIN CARA vs. A JOBBER-
Cara squashes the jobber, then grabs a mic. He proceeds to explain his reasons for attacking Dean Ambrose, which were, simply, that Ambrose was part of the Wyatt Family when the Wyatts took him out, so he wanted to get revenge on him. Kalisto comes out and proceeds to try to tell Cara that Dean is a changed man, but Cara assaults him, too. Cara then launches into a tirade about how instead of trying to avenge him, all Kalisto did was try to steal his fans.

Renee Young is interviewing Nattie backstage. She asks her if she thinks that the controversy surrounding her loss will hurt her in her attempts to climb back up the rankings and earn another shot at the Divas Title. Before Nattie can answer the question, Miz shows up. He apologizes to Nattie about her loss, and then suggests that they ask for the rest of the week off so they can train and prepare for their intergender tag team match at CyberSlam as a team, instead of as individuals. Nattie seems to think that this is a bit unnecessary, but Miz says that Brie and Blake clearly work together as a team, so he and Nattie will be at a disadvantage if they won’t develop chemistry as well.
Miz’s argument seems to convince Nattie. She suggests that they go to her home in Calgary to train. She has a ring there, and she will also be able to see Tyson, who she hasn’t seen in a while because she has been on the road while he has been injured. Miz gets very nervous at this suggestion and sputters a bit, almost stalling for time to come up with a response before insisting that they can’t go to Calgary to train because the elevation levels and humidity in Calgary are much different than they are in Corpus Christi, where the match will take place, so it would be best to train elsewhere. In fact, it would be best if they got a hotel room and stayed Corpus Christi to train there. Nattie agrees that this does make sense, and says she will talk to Steph about getting a ring for them to use down there and that she will go book her room tonight and meet Miz down there on Wednesday.

DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman) vs. ALEXANDER RUSEV (w/Sylvester Lefort & Lana)-
They go for a few minutes before John Cena runs out and attacks Rusev, causing a DQ. Just like on Smackdown, Cena and Ziggler start fighting, which lets Rusev recover and take them both out.

We get a backstage promo with Team Anger. Kane talks about how he will use his anger to motivate him to win tonight’s #1 contendership match. Truth then laments his recent string of losses. Swagger and Kane encourage him to find something that makes him especially angry and focus on it. Truth looks off in the distance for a moment, then says that he has something in mind. He then runs over to a long-haired man backstage and slams him into a wall and starts putting the boots to him. That person is Roman Reigns. Truth tells the fallen Roman that “I’ve been waiting two years to do that to you, you little punk.”

ZACK RYDER vs. WADE BARRETT-
Ryder pulls off the upset victory in his home market in fifteen minutes.

PAIGE vs. EMMA-
Ashley Flair is on commentary. Paige wins clean, then starts to yell at Ashley to give her a title shot. Then Tamina comes out and Tamina gets in Ashley’s face, saying she deserves a title shot before Paige. Steph comes out and books them in a #1 contendership match at CyberSlam.

KEVIN OWENS & SAMI ZAYN vs. THE USOS-
Usos win clean in twenty minutes, but put Zayn & Owens over huge after the match. JBL scoffs at this, pointing out that Zayn and Owens have yet to win a match against a main-roster team.

WINNER GETS A WWE TITLE SHOT AT CYBERSLAM: Big Show (w/Kofi Kingston) vs. Kane (w/Jack Swagger & R-Truth) vs. Damien Sandow (w/the Brain Trust)-
WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro is on commentary. Big Show wins clean in fifteen minutes, pinning Sandow after a chokeslam. Cesaro and Big Show have a stare-down to end the show.

WWE.com announces that as a result of their brawl on Raw, Justin Gabriel vs. Darren Young has been booked for Main Event.

Main Event: (5/26/2015)-
DARREN YOUNG (w/Titus O’Neil) vs. JUSTIN GABRIEL (w/Adrian Neville)-
Gabriel wins clean in ten minutes with the 450.

HEATH SLATER vs. R-TRUTH (w/Team Anger)-
Truth squashes Slater in just enough time for the announcers to put over his attack on Roman last night on Raw.

JOHN CENA vs. RANDY ORTON-
Orton wins clean in twenty-one minutes with the RKO. JBL notes that Cena has lost yet another big match.


WWE.com announces that John Cena will face Dolph Ziggler on Smackdown, with the winner facing Alexander Rusev at CyberSlam.
Also announced for Smackdown are contract signings for the WWE Title match at Divas Title #1 Contendership match at CyberSlam.

Smackdown: (5/28/2015)- Wilkes-Barre, PA
INTERNATIONAL AIRSTRIKE 2.0 vs. MARK HENRY & BIG E. LANGSTON vs. THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS vs. THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes)-
The Usos are on commentary for this match, and put everyone over as being great teams, but especially Mark and Big E.
They go four about ten minutes until we get a big schmoz on the outside that results in Darren Young and Primo as the legal men, with Mark Henry being the only guy on the apron. Primo charges at Darren who is near Mark Henry’s corner. Darren ducks Primo’s attack, and Primo comes off the ropes to try something else, but Darren counters this next move with a drop toe hold, then locks in a leg submission. Unbeknownst to Darren, Mark Henry managed to blindly tag himself in as Primo wet by. Mark climbs to the top rope and squashes the unsuspecting Darren with a huge splash. Big E. pulls Primo out of the ring, and Henry pins Darren for the win. The Usos have a stare-down and a handshake with Mark and Big E. after the match.

R-TRUTH (w/Team Anger) vs. ZACK RYDER-
Truth wins clean in four minutes, then cuts a promo explaining why he attacked Roman (he is still bitter about their feud two years ago when Roman was first coming up to the main roster where Roman was a punk and disrespected the veteran R-Truth). Roman comes out to brawl with Truth, but is quickly beaten down Kane, Truth, and Swagger.

Kofi Kingston cuts an in-ring promo calling out Sin Cara, saying that Cara attacking Dean and Kalisto was not cool. Dean is a changed man and has paid for the sins he committed as part of the Wyatt Family, and Kalisto did, in fact, try to avenge Cara after the Wyatts put him out. Cara comes out and jumps Kofi from behind.

Brie Bella & Wesley Blake cut a backstage promo saying that they would have “ended Nattie’s career many times over if Miz wasn’t there to protect her.”

Steph comes out to announce a wonderful opportunity for the WWE fans, where they will be able to choose one of the matches at CyberSlam via voting on WWE.com or on the WWE App. WWE fans will be asked to choose between Kane, Jack Swagger, Wade Barrett, Bray Wyat, Ryback, and Michael McGillicutty, with the top two vote-getters facing off at CyberSlam.
Roman Reigns comes out and tells Steph that he wants to get his hands on R-Truth, and is even willing to put his IC Title on the line to get it. Steph books that match for CyberSlam as well.

Renee Young interviews Rusev, Lefort, & Lana. Lefort and Lana say that neither of them is worthy of facing Rusev, as is evidenced by Rusev destroying them both multiple times in the past two weeks.

Cole informs us that Sin Cara vs. Kofi Kingston has been signed for CyberSlam.

Steph officiates the Divas Title #1 contendership signing. Paige and Tamina both cut promos. Summer Rae is also out with Tamina and cuts a promo saying that Tamina will kick Paige’s ass just like she kicks Alicia Fox’s all the time. Paige gets annoyed at Summer, leading to a brawl which is quickly broken up by security. Ashley Flair shows up at the end to laugh at them and guarantees that she will successfully defend her title against whoever wins this match.

JOHN CENA vs. DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman)-
They go for about ten minutes before Rusev runs out and attacks both of them for a double DQ. Lefort brags that because neither of them won, neither of these unworthy opponents will face Rusev at CyberSlam. Then Steph comes out and tells Lefort that she makes the decisions around here, not him… and because of Rusev’s actions tonight, she has decided that the only fair thing to do is to book Rusev vs. Dolph Ziggler… vs. John Cena in a triple threat match!

Wade Barrett cuts a backstage promo about how he is sick and tired of losing, and will turn things around tomorrow night on Superstars against Michael McGillicutty.

Next we get the WWE Title match contract signing between Big Show and Cesaro. They put each other over. The announcers put this over as a tough challenge for Cesaro.

CODY RHODES, KEVIN OWENS, & SAMI ZAYN vs. RANDY ORTON, JACK SWAGGER, & KANE (w/R-Truth)-
The commentators note that Randy Orton would probably fit in very well with Team Anger. Owens and Zayn take a lot of punishment, but when Cody finally tags in, he doesn’t fare too well, either, being dominated by Kane. Eventually Cody decides he has had enough and walks out, leaving Zayn and Owens to be beaten down and eventually Kane pins Zayn.

Superstars: (5/29/2015)
Tonight’s featured match is Wade Barrett vs. Michael McGillicutty. McGillicutty’s promos center on his desire to be a big star in WWE like his father. Wade’s are about the fact that he is sick and tired of losing.
WADE BARRETT vs. MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY-
McGillicutty wins clean after he ducks the Barrett Barrage and rolls Wade up for the pin.


The votes are in, and the match the WWE Universe has decided on for CyberSlam is… WADE BARRETT vs. BRAY WYATT!

WWE.com releases a video of Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens challenging Kane and Swagger to a match at CyberSlam, saying that would stand a better chance in a fair fight instead of a match where their other partner walked out half way through. Later in the day it is announced that this match has been signed for the pre-show.

WWE CyberSlam 2015: (5/31/2015)- Corpus Christi, TX
PRE-SHOW:
Mark Henry and Big E. cut a promo about wanting to win the tag titles tonight, here in Mark’s home state.

KEVIN OWENS & SAMI ZAYN vs. TEAM ANGER (w/R-Truth)-
Owens and Zayn fight valiantly, but are defeated in eleven minutes when Kane pins Zayn after a chokeslam.

Cesaro, Big Show, Randy, and Cody all cut promos about their world title matches.

MAIN SHOW:
SIN CARA vs. KOFI KINGSTON-
Cara cheats to win via low blow and a roll-up in eleven minutes.

WADE BARRETT vs. BRAY WYATT (w/the Wyatt Family)-
Bray wins clean in thirteen minutes with the Monster Tamer.

INTERGENDER TAG TEAM MATCH: Natalya Neidhart & The Miz vs. Brie Bella & Wesley Blake-
I wouldn’t have the announcers call any attention to it, but during their entrance, I would have Miz stay behind Nattie the entire time and check out her ass. He would also be almost openly admiring her ass any time it is facing him while he is on the apron. We would also get a spot early on where Nattie running the ropes and Miz goes to blind tag himself in, and in order to do so, he smacks her ass. Nattie gives him that incredulous “did you really just do that?” look, but Miz apologizes profusely and claims he was trying to get her hand as she turned, but he missed.
The heels would get heat on Nattie, with Miz always being distracted by Blake and thus out of position to receive a tag whenever Nattie has the chance to make one. The finish comes when Brie tags in Blake grabs Nattie and bends her over to set up for the powerbomb, even though she is no longer the legal participant. The new legal man, Miz, runs in, grabs Blake from behind, and gives him the Skull Crushing Finale to both set up the pin and also save Nattie from being powerbombed. Time of the match should be about eight minutes.

WWE INTERNCONTINENTAL TITLE MATCH: Roman Reigns(c) vs. R-Truth (w/Team Anger)-
Roman wins clean in fifteen minutes to retain the IC Title.

TRIPLE THREAT MATCH: John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler (w/Paul Heyman) vs. Alexander Rusev (w/Sylvester Lefort & Lana)-
Cena and Ziggler both start out by going after Rusev and then wind up fighting each other to stop the other from getting in their way of beating Rusev down. Rusev recovers and eventually gets the win by making Cena pass out in the Accolade. Total time is fifteen minutes.

#1 CONTENDERSHIP MATCH: Paige vs. Tamina Snuka (w/Summer Rae)-
Tamina wins in twelve minutes after a Summer Rae distraction allows Tamina to hit the superkick for the win.

WWE WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: The Usos(c) vs. Mark Henry & Big E. Langston-
The finish comes in thirteen minutes when Big E. attempts to emulate Mark Henry’s success over the past week by going up to the top rope to try to splash Jey Uso, but Jey rolls out of the way and Big E. crashes down to the mat. The Usos then knock Mark off the apron with a double superkick, then hit successive diving splashes on Big E., allowing Jey to pin him to retain the tag titles.

STEEL CAGE MATCH FOR THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE: Cody Rhodes(c) vs. Randy Orton-
They go for about twenty minutes until we wind up in a position where Cody is trying to scale the cage wall while Orton is going to crawl out the door and Orton is winning, but then Daniel Bryan jumps the guardrail, runs up onto the apron and punts Randy in the head, knocking Randy out and allowing Cody to win the race to the floor and retain the title. Security comes and arrests Dragon.

WWE TITLE MATCH: Antonio Cesaro(c) vs. Big Show-
Cesaro wins clean in twenty-five minutes, pinning Big Show after getting him up for the Gotch-style Neutralizer. After the match, as Cesaro is celebrating, Brock Lesnar shows up and gets in his face and tells Cesaro that he wants his rematch in two weeks at Judgment Day.

WWE.com reports that as a result of once again violating his suspension last night at CyberSlam, WWE General Manager Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley has ordered Daniel Bryan to appear on tonight’s Raw for a “public hearing.”
As a result of her interference in last night’s #1 contendership match, Summer Rae will now have to face the music against the woman she screwed out of that match: Paige!
Also signed for Raw is The Colons vs. WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro and IC Champion Roman Reigns, Randy Orton vs. Damien Sandow, Sin Cara vs. Kevin Owens, and a Battle Royale to determine the next challenger for the IC Title.
Paul Heyman will also be on Raw to address the appearance of his client, Brock Lesnar, at the end of last night’s main event!

Signed for this week’s Main Event is Big E. Langston vs. World Heavyweight Champion Cody Rhodes, Wade Barrett vs. Sami Zayn, and US Champion The Miz vs. Darren Young.


Raw: (6/1/2015)- San Antonio, TX

Before our first match, we are shown a police van sitting in the parking lot. We are told Daniel Bryan is inside, and will remain there until such time as his public hearing begins to ensure that he does not disrupt tonight’s show.

RANDY ORTON vs. DAMIEN SANDOW (w/the Brain Trust)-
The announcers remind us that this match was supposed to happen two weeks ago on Main Event, but Orton walked out due to the issues with Dragon costing him the World Heavyweight Title. Sandow had claimed the match as a forfeit victory, but now we are finally getting to see the match for real.
Randy wins clean in fifteen minutes with an RKO. After the match, Steph comes out and says she thinks it would be best if Orton left the building right now. She doesn’t want there to be any problems with him and Bryan, and she doesn’t want Orton disrupting Bryan’s hearing. Orton agrees to do so.

We get a backstage promo from Mark Henry and Big E. Langston. Mark talks about his participation in tonight’s battle royale for a shot at the IC Title. Big E. apologizes to Mark for costing them the tag titles last night by trying a dive. Mark tells him not to worry about it. It’s called a high-risk move for a reason. Sometimes you take risks to try to win titles and sometimes those risks don’t pay off. The important thing is to get up, brush yourself off, and work on earning that next title opportunity… and Big E. has the chance to do just that if he can win his non-title match against World Heavyweight Champion Cody Rhodes tomorrow night on Main Event.

SIN CARA vs. KEVIN OWENS (w/Sami Zayn)-
Cara wins clean in twelve minutes. On commentary, JBL chews Owens and Zayn out for losing again.

Ashley Flair cuts a backstage promo claiming that due to the controversy caused by Summer Rae in last night’s #1 contendership match, Tamina’s victory should be null and void… but Paige is still a loser, so neither woman deserves a shot at her Divas Title.

Byron Saxton interviews John Cena about losing once again last night. Cena acknowledges his loss, but says he is focused on the future, and right now, that means tonight’s battle royale for a shot at the IC Title.

THE WYATT FAMILY (Luke Harper, Erick Rowan, & Ryback) (w/Bray Wyatt) vs. THREE JOBBERS-
The Wyatts destroy the jobbers. After the match, Bray cuts a promo saying how “nice” it is that Steph is letting him cut promos again and even giving him a chance to earn a title shot in tonight’s battle royale- although he notes that it is a huge battle royale and none of his other followers are in the match, despite the fact that wrestlers on massive losing streaks like John Cena, Wade Barrett, and Sami Zayn are in the match.
Bray says that this is because Steph thinks that the examples of Dean Ambrose and Brodus Clay leaving the Wyatt Family have disillusioned the fans of Bray’s message, but Bray declares that nothing could be further from the truth. Tonight he will overcome the odds and prove that, “through Bray Wyatt, anything is possible.”

Sylvester Lefort cuts a backstage promo putting over Rusev’s victory over John Cena and Dolph Ziggler last night, making Cena pass out in the Accolade. He says that this is the same fate in store for whoever dares to step into the ring with Rusev tonight. Lana also cuts a short promo in which she declares that Rusev will crush. Rusev stands in the background, looking scary.

ALICIA FOX vs. NATALYA NEIDHART (w/The Miz)-
Nattie wins clean in ten minutes, dominating most of the match before finishing Fox off with a big discuss clothesline.

Renee Young interviews Cody Rhodes backstage. She asks him if he thinks he owes his World Heavyweight Title to Daniel Bryan. Cody gets very angry and yells at Renee, saying that he won last night and he is the champion no matter what anyone says.

ROMAN REIGNS & ANTONIO CESARO vs. THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes)-
Roman & Cesaro win clean in ten minutes when Cesaro pins Epico after a Gotch-Style Neutralizer.

Wade Barrett cuts a backstage promo vowing that tonight will be the start of his turnaround.

Paul Heyman comes out and cuts a promo burying Cesaro for focusing on his newly-formed tag team with Roman Reigns when last night should have made it clear to him that he needs to be focusing on THE BEAST Bbrrrrroooock Llllllleessnnaarrr! Brock wants his rematch in just thirteen days at Judgment Day, so Cesaro had better be ready to be humiliated and stripped of everything he worked so hard for!
(And he also puts over Dolph’s chances of winning the IC Title #1 contendership battle royale.)

ALEXANDER RUSEV (w/Sylvester Lefort & Lana) vs…. BO DALLS!
The announcers are completely stunned at Bo’s return. They note that it has been almost eleven months since we last saw Bo, when he was being stretchered out of the Prudential Center after multiple punts from Randy Orton, which Randy did because Bo had betrayed him in favor his cousin, Bray Wyatt back in February, and had since cost Randy a Money in the Bank ladder match… and after all of this, Bray didn’t give a crap about Randy injuring Bo. We can only guess at what sort of mental state Bo is in right now…
Bo seems to be all happy smiles. Then the bell rings and Rusev kicks his ass and makes him tap to the Accolade in under a minute. Bo, strangely, seems to have something of a smile on his face as he heads to the back.

Byron Saxton interviews Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. He notes JBL’s recent comments about them and the fact that they haven’t won a single match against someone from the main roster since being called up. He asks them if they are still sure they can hang at the level required to be on the main roster.
Zayn and Owens cut fiery promos about how they have fought their whole lives to get to WWE and they’re not going to let one loss or even a hundred losses break their spirit. They know in their hearts that not only are they good enough to be in the WWE… they’re good enough to be WWE World Tag Team Champions!

INTERNATIONAL AIRSTRIKE 2.0 vs. THE USOS-
Usos win clean in twenty minutes.

Renee Young interviews Bo Dallas. She asks him about all of the adversity and trauma he has faced in his career and asks him how he is dealing with that. Bo cuts a promo that explains his new gimmick, which is essentially Mr. Positivity (think his current gimmick except without the “BO-LIEVE!” catchphrase and not a heel). He puts the past behind him and always looks to the future.

PAIGE vs. SUMMER RAE (w/Tamina)-
They go for a few minutes of Summer running away from Paige, eventually resulting in Summer hiding behind Tamina on the outside, and when Paige tries to go through Tamina to get to Summer, Tamina attacks her, causing a DQ.

BATTLE ROYALE FOR A SHOT AT THE INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE NEXT WEEK ON RAW: Bray Wyatt vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. John Cena vs. Wade Barrett vs. Sami Zayn vs. Big Show vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Miz vs. Titus O’Neil vs. Darren Young vs. Zack Ryder vs. Michael McGillicutty vs. Heath Slater vs. Mark Henry vs. Jack Swagger vs. Kane vs. R-Truth-
Wade is eliminated almost immediately by Jack Swagger. Miz is eliminated by Darren Young. People get eliminated for a while, with Kofi, Cena, Kane, Swagger, and Bray all having good showings. Bray and Cena are the last two left, and Bray eliminates Cena to win the title shot.

Summer Rae cuts a backstage promo bragging about how Alicia Fox got her ass kicked tonight, and how Tamina kicked Paige’s ass, too- “but only after that psychopath Paige provoked her!” Summer says that Ashley should take this as a warning for what will happen to her at Judgment Day when Tamina takes her Divas Title.
The announcers let us know that just signed for this week on Superstars will be the Usos defending the tag titles against IC Champion Roman Reigns and WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro.

DANIEL BRYAN’S PUBLIC HEARING- Steph comes out, then has security bring Daniel Bryan out in handcuffs. Steph reads Bryan the riot act, explaining that she is doing this in public in front of all of the fans as a punishment to embarrass Bryan because she cannot have someone go around and violate suspensions like Bryan has been doing. She tells Bryan that he has now violated his suspension twice. One more strike, and he is out.
Steph asks Bryan if he has anything to say for himself, but just then Randy Orton comes out of the crowd and starts to plow through security to get at the handcuffed Bryan. Bryan manages to get some kicks him, but Orton nails him with some hard punches. More security runs down to the ring to tackle both guys while Steph screams in anger and announces that Randy Orton is now suspended as well.

WWE.com announces that Summer Rae & Tamina vs. Paige and a tag team partner of Paige’s choice has been signed for Smackdown.


Main Event: (6/2/2015)

THE MIZ vs. DARREN YOUNG (w/Titus O’Neil)-
Nattie does not come out to the ring with The Miz. The announcers notice this, as does Miz, who seems concerned. He doesn’t let it distract him, though, and goes on to beat Darren cleanly in nine minutes.

WADE BARRETT vs. SAMI ZAYN (w/Kevin Owens)-
Barrett beats the crap out of Sami for most of the match, but Sami manages to duck the Barrett Barrage and backslides Wade for the first singles win of his main roster career! Wade is furious and attacks Sami, but Kevin Owens quickly chases Wade off.

ALICIA FOX vs. EMMA-
The match goes about five minutes before Tamina runs in and beats them both up (double DQ), while Summer stands in the ring and laughs. After the heels have left, Fox picks up a mic and cuts an angry promo saying that Paige had better pick her to be her tag team partner to face Summer and Tamina on Smackdown, because if she doesn’t Fox is going to attack them anyway and Paige will just lose by DQ.

CODY RHODES vs. BIG E. LANGSTON (w/Mark Henry)-
Cody wins clean in fourteen minutes when he slips out of the Big Ending, landing in perfect position to hit the Cross Rhodes for the pin.


WWE.com announces that Paige has indeed chosen Alicia Fox to be her tag team partner. Also signed for Smackdown is Wade Barrett vs. Kevin Owens.


Smackdown: (6/4/2015)- Houston, TX

The show opens with Steph coming out to the ring. She says that she had been planning on naming Randy Orton #1 contender to the World Heavyweight Title because of Daniel Bryan’s interference in the title match at CyberSlam, but because of Randy’s actions on Raw, she won’t be doing that. While Randy will be returning from his suspension in time to wrestle at Judgment Day, he will have to watch someone else… or rather, THREE someones… challenge for the World Heavyweight Title instead of him. Steph announces that on tonight’s Smackdown, next week’s Raw, and next week’s Smackdown, there will be a ten-way one-fall to a finish match (thus giving everyone who isn’t currently a champion a chance to earn a title shot) in which the winners will face off with Cody Rhodes in a Fatal 4-Way at the PPV for the World Heavyweight Title.
Cody Rhodes comes out to complain about how this isn’t fair, but Steph tells him that the people who say he hasn’t earned his championship and only won and retained it because of Daniel Bryan have a point, so she is going to make sure that he either deserves the title or loses it.
Steph also decrees that because of his whining, she is booking him in a match tonight teaming with Brain Trust against Kofi, Big Show, and McGillicutty… and that match is next!

KOFI KINGSTON, MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY, & BIG SHOW vs. CODY RHODES & BRAIN TRUST (w/Naomi)-
Kofi pins Otunga clean in ten minutes after Trouble in Paradise.

Renee Young interviews Roman Reigns and Antonio Cesaro about their tag title shot tomorrow night against the Usos, and whether training for this match has caused them to split their focus between this match and their own upcoming singles title defenses: Roman in four days on Raw against Bray Wyatt and Cesaro in ten days at Judgment Day against Brock Lesnar. They say they think they can still win.

SUMMER RAE & TAMINA vs. ALICIA FOX & PAIGE-
Summer plays the cowardly heel trying to avoid vengeance from the babyfaces and only tagging in when they are down. The finish comes at the ten minute mark when Fox is too distracted by Summer on the apron, allowing Tamina to nail her with a superkick for the pin.

Renee Young interviews Paul Heyman about Cesaro and Roman challenging for tag titles. He says that if they win those, then when Brock beats Cesaro to regain the WWE Title, he will lobby for his Paul Heyman Guys to get a tag title shot, too. In fact, he just might do that even if Cesaro and Roman lose. “Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I have a match to pitch to Mrs. McMahon-Helmsley.”

THE WYATT FAMILY (Luke Harper & Ryback) (w/Bray Wyatt & Erick Rowan) vs. TWO JOBBERS-
The Wyatts squash the jobbers. Bray cuts a promo touting his victory last week as a result of his great discipline- the sort of discipline he can instill in anyone willing to learn from him in order to conquer their inner monsters. When you believe in Bray Wyatt- when you have the discipline that can only be instilled by Bray Wyatt- nothing is impossible. And thus Bray will once again overcome the odds and win tonight’s ten way match and earn a shot at the World Heavyweight Title… and at Judgment Day, he will win that, too!

KANE (w/Team Anger) vs. HEATH SLATER-
Kane squashes Slater.

The Usos cut a promo to build up their tag title defense against Cesaro and Roman tomorrow night on Superstars.

Sylvester Lefort and Lana cut a promo saying that when Rusev gets his chance in his ten way match on Raw, he will crush his opponents and then crush the competition at Judgment Day to win the World Heavyweight Title.

The announcers tell us that Dolph Ziggler vs. Jey Uso has been signed for Raw.

THE MIZ vs. PRIMO COLON (w/Epico Colon & Rosa Mendes)-
Once again, Nattie does not come out to the ring with The Miz. The announcers notice this, as does Miz, who seems concerned. Once again, he doesn’t let it distract him, though, and goes on to beat Primo cleanly in seven minutes.

ASHLEY FLAIR vs. EMMA-
Ashley wins clean in seven minutes with Bow to the Queen. Emma offers her a handshake after the match, but Ashley blows her off.

John Cena cuts a backstage promo saying he is going to end his slump tonight by winning the ten-way match and going on to win the World Heavyweight Title at Judgment Day. Bo Dallas drops by and commends Cena for his optimistic attitude despite his recent streak of losses in big matches.

WADE BARRETT vs. KEVIN OWENS (w/Sami Zayn)-
Owens wins clean in twelve minutes. JBL grudgingly admits that maybe Owens deserves to stay on the main roster, but he still harps on the fact that the team of Owens and Zayn has never beaten a main-roster team. He also chews Barrett out for yet another loss.

We go backstage to where Renee Young is interviewing Nattie. She asks Nattie for her thoughts on the following match which has just been signed for Raw: Nattie, Paige. Alicia Fox, & Emma vs. Summer Rae, Tamina, Rosa Mendes, & Naomi. Nattie starts to cut a promo, but she is interrupted by the appearance of The Miz.
Miz wants to know why Nattie wasn’t at ringside for his matches on Main Event and tonight on Smackdown. Nattie seems a bit confused by the question, so Miz clarifies that they need to stick together because it would be terrible if Brie and Blake were to attack her while Miz wasn’t around to help. Nattie says that she appreciates Miz’s chivalry, but she is perfectly capable of taking care of herself. Besides… she hasn’t seen hide nor hair of Brie or Blake since CyberSlam. Maybe the beating she and Miz gave them scared them off. Miz says he hopes Nattie is right.


10-WAY MATCH FOR A SHOT AT THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE AT JUDGMENT DAY: John Cena vs. Sin Cara vs. Dolph Ziggler (w/Paul Heyman) vs. Erick Rowan (w/the Wyatt Family) vs. Bray Wyatt (also w/the Wyatt Family) vs. Jack Swagger (w/Team Anger) vs. Justin Gabriel (w/Adrian Neville) vs. Epico Colon (w/Primo Colon & Rosa Mendes) vs. Darren Young (w/Titus O’Neil) vs. Big E. Langston (w/Mark Henry)-
This match has two guys in the ring and the other eight on the apron waiting for a tag. Dolph pins Cena clean in twenty minutes to win the match.


Superstars: (6/5/2015)
Tonight’s featured match is WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro and Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns challenging The Usos for the WWE World Tag Team Titles. The Usos’ promos focus on their superior chemistry and teamwork as a key to victory. Roman and Cesaro’s promos focus on their unblemished record since they started to team up. We get promos from others (including Paul Heyman) who say that Cesaro and Roman’s need to divide their time between training for this match and training for their upcoming singles title defenses puts them at a major disadvantage.

WWE WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: The Usos(c) vs. Roman Reigns & Antonio Cesaro-
Usos win clean in thirty minutes to retain when Jimmy pins Roman after the Usos’ big double splash.

Already signed for tonight’s Raw is:
Natalya Neidhart, Emma, Paige, & Alicia Fox vs. Tamina, Summer Rae, Rosa Mendes, & Naomi
Dolph Ziggler vs. Jey Uso
Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt for the Intercontinental Title
A ten-way match to determine who will join Dolph Ziggler and Cody Rhodes in a Fatal Four-Way match for the World Heavyweight Title at Judgment Day.
Also on Raw, Paul Heyman has announced that Brock Lesnar will be calling Cesaro out just six days before their WWE Title match at Judgment Day.


Raw: (6/8/2015)- New Orleans, LA
The show opens with a promo by Paul Heyman and Dolph Ziggler. Paul assures us that Brock Lesnar is here as advertised, but he’ll be out later. For now, though, Paul is here to hype up Dolph’s match tonight against one half of the tag team champions: Jey Uso. He also says that Dolph it doesn’t matter who the other two competitors will be: Dolph will still walk out of Judgment Day as the World Heavyweight Champion.

JOHN CENA vs. KOFI KINGSTON (w/Big Show) vs. ADRIAN NEVILLE (w/Justin Gabriel) vs. DAMIEN SANDOW (w/the Brain Trust)-
Kofi wins clean in fifteen minutes, pinning Sandow. The announcers put over that the chaos in this four way match is just a small sample of what we’ll see in tonight’s big ten-way match. They also put over the possibility of Otunga and Big Show winning said match and earning a World Heavyweight Title shot at Judgment Day.

R-TRUTH (w/Team Anger) vs. ERICK ROWAN (w/the Wyatt Family)-
Rowan wins clean in ten minutes, but the two teams have a shoving match afterwards, which results in tons of security pouring out to separate them.

SIN CARA vs. JUSTIN GABRIEL (w/Adrian Neville)-
Cara wins in ten minutes. The finish comes when Gabriel is about to hit the 450, but Cara pushes the ref into the ropes to knock him off balance, then hits his own big flippy finisher for the pin. Steph comes out to announce to Cara that in six days at Judgment Day, he will have to pay the price for extracting his vengeance upon Dean Ambrose: Dean Ambrose will get the chance to extract some vengeance of his own! It’s Cara vs. Ambrose at Judgment Day!

THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS vs. ZACK RYDER & HEATH SLATER-
PTP win clean in seven minutes.

NATALYA NEIDHART, EMMA, ALICIA FOX, & PAIGE vs. SUMMER RAE, TAMINA, ROSA MENDES, & NAOMI (w/the Brain Trust & the Colons)-
Summer once again spends most of the match hiding on the apron, only tagging in when Paige or Alicia is down and tagging out as soon as they show signs of life. The heels win clean in fifteen minutes when Tamina pins Emma. After the match, Ashley Flair comes out and lays out all four babyfaces with the Divas Title. She also tries to lay Tamina out, but Tamina blocks it, then nails Ashley with a superkick and hits her with a Samoan Drop. The announcers put over the fact that among the many top contenders in this match, only Tamina was able to take Ashley out afterwards. The Divas Title is surely in jeopardy when these two meet this Sunday at Judgment Day!

After a commercial break we go to the trainer’s room for a quick update on all four women who were laid out by Ashley’s title belt. They’re all fine. Miz shows up and tells Nattie that if she had let him come to ringside with her, he could have protected her from Ashley.

DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman) vs. JEY USO (w/Jimmy Uso)-
Dolph wins clean in thirteen minutes with the Zig-Zag.

Wade Barrett cuts a promo vowing that, unlike John Cena on Smackdown, he will actually succeed in breaking his losing streak in tonight’s ten man match and advance to the World Heavyweight Title match at Judgment Day.

CODY RHODES vs. SAMI ZAYN (w/Kevin Owens)-
Cody wins clean in fifteen minutes. The announcers put Zayn over for fighting valiantly and also put over the fact that Owens might win tonight’s ten-way match and go on to challenge Cody at the PPV.

THE MIZ vs. BO DALLAS-
Miz wins clean in six minutes. After the match, someone runs out from backstage with news for Miz, who runs backstage as fast as he can. The cameraman follows Miz to a locker room where Nattie has been laid out and beaten bloody. Apparently, after a week of leaving her alone, Brie Bella and Wesley Blake attacked her backstage.

WWE INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE MATCH: Roman Reigns(c) vs. Bray Wyatt (w/the Wyatt Family)-
The Usos are on commentary for this match, and Jimmy expresses his desire to challenge Roman for the IC Title because he pinned him on Superstars. Roman wins clean in seventeen minutes. The Wyatts attack Roman after the match, but the Usos help Roman fight them off.

Heyman and Brock call Cesaro out. Heyman says that Brock wants to put on an “exhibition” right here, right now. Cesaro accepts, and they negotiate rules: 3 five minute rounds, no punches, etc. etc. Brock offers for Cesaro get down on the mat in the referee’s position (think the one from the EC III-Spud segment last year), and once Cesaro gets down, Brock immediately kicks him in the ribs and starts pounding on him. Cesaro eventually manages to roll free and recover, while Heyman and Lesnar just walk off laughing, while Paul declares that Brock will not only take his WWE Title back from Cesaro at Judgment Day, but he will humiliate him, just like he did here tonight.

10-WAY MATCH FOR A SHOT AT THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE AT JUDGMENT DAY: Wade Barrett vs. Michael McGillicutty vs. Kevin Owens (w/Sami Zayn) vs. Mark Henry (w/Big E. Langston) vs. Big Show (w/Kofi Kingston) vs. David Otunga (w/Brain Trust) vs. Kane (w/Team Anger) vs. Alexander Rusev (w/Sylvester Lefort & Lana) vs. Luke Harper (w/the Wyatt Family) vs. Ryback (w/also with the Wyatt Family)-
They go for twenty-five minutes. McGillicutty seems to have the match won, but Lefort trips him up as he is going for the pin. Mark Henry eventually picks up the win, pinning Barrett after the World’s Strongest Slam.



On Tuesday morning, WWE.com announces several new matches for Judgment Day:
Roman Reigns defends the Intercontinental Title against Jimmy Uso

Main Event: (6/9/2015)


BO DALLAS & HEATH SLATER vs. THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes)-
Colons win clean in nine minutes.

EVA MARIE vs. TAMINA SNUKA (w/Summer Rae)-
Tamina sqashes Eva in under a minute. After the match, Tamina gets on the mic and calls out Steph. She asks if she can have the rest of the week off to train like Ashley is getting. Steph says okay. Summer looks worried, but then asks for time off to help Tamina train. Steph tells her no, and says that bodyguard or not, if Summer doesn’t show up for her match against Alicia Fox on Smackdown, she will be fired.
Michael McGillicutty cuts a backstage promo on Sylvester Lefort, saying that Lefort’s interference in last night’s ten-way cost him a shot at the World Heavyweight Title and he will pay Lefort back for this.

BIG E. LANGSTON (w/Mark Henry) vs. JACK SWAGGER (w/Team Anger) vs. LUKE HARPER (w/the Wyatt Family)-
Swagger wins clean in nine minutes, but does so by pulling Harper out of the ring and stealing the pin after Harper has leveled Big E. with the Steamroller. This leads to another shoving match between Team Anger and the Wyatts. Seeing that it is four-on-three, Sin Cara comes out to help Team Angler. Security quickly comes out to prevent things from escalating.

ZACK RYDER vs. JIMMY USO (w/Jey Uso)-
Roman Reigns is on commentary to scout Jimmy. Jimmy wins clean in thirteen minutes with a superkick followed by a big splash. After the match, Steph comes out and says that while Jimmy and Roman might be opponents on Sunday, they will be teaming up on Smackdown to fight the Wyatt Family, just like they did on Raw… but they will need to find a partner, first.


WWE.com reports that Sin Cara has volunteered to team with Roman and The Usos against the Wyatt Family, and Roman said yes.

WWE.com hypes a live Smackdown post-show on the WWE Network where several additional matches for Judgment Day will be announced, including Randy Orton’s first match back from his suspension.


Smackdown: (6/11/2015)- Lafayette, LA

DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman) vs. BIG SHOW (w/Kofi Kingston)-
Dolph chokes Big Show out with the sleeper hold in ten minutes. Heyman cuts a promo saying that both Dolph and Brock will leave Judgment Day as world champions.

EVA MARIE vs. NATALYA NEIDHART (w/The Miz)-
Nattie still has some bandages on from the attack a few days ago that left her in a pool of her own blood. Nattie beats the sh*t out of Eva, then cuts a promo saying she will do the same to Brie at Judgment Day.

Tom Phillips is interviewing Roman and The Usos. He asks if they think they can trust Sin Cara. The Usos are apprehensive, but Roman seems to think Cara is trustworthy because Cara has shown that his main goal is fighting the Wyatts. Tom then asks if they think the impending IC Title match between Roman and Jimmy might get in the way of their trust tonight. Both Roman and Jimmy say that it won’t be an issue.

We get video packages from both Ashley Flair and Tamina’s training camps to hype up their title match.

ALEXANDER RUSEV (w/Sylvester Lefort & Lana) vs. WESLEY BLAKE (w/Brie Bella)-
Blake and Brie enter first, and the announcers use this time to hype Brie’s match with Nattie at the PPV. Right after the match gets started, Michael McGillicutty comes out to go after Lefort. Rusev intercepts him and they start to brawl (causing Rusev to win by DQ). Security quickly pours out to stop them.

SUMMER RAE vs. ALICIA FOX-
Summer tries to run away but Fox kicks her butt for a few minutes. It turns out that Summer has hid some mace in her top and sprays it into Fox’s eyes out of the ref’s line of sight. Summer then rolls Fox up for the pin, then runs all the way up the ramp, to her car, and out of the building.

THE WYATT FAMILY vs. ROMAN REIGNS, SIN CARA, & THE USOS-
The Wyatts win when Dean Ambrose shows up to attack Sin Cara for the DQ. Roman and the Usos quickly separate them.

Renee Young interviews Sylvester Lefort (& Lana & Rusev). She asks Lefort if he would like to respond to Michael McGillicutty’s claim that his interference cost him a World Heavyweight Title shot on Raw. Lefort (after first trying to hit on Renee), says that McGillicutty is lying and declares that Rusev will crush McGillicutty for slandering the good name of Sylvester Lefort! (Lana quietly translates for Rusev in the background).

CODY RHODES vs. WADE BARRETT-
Cody wins clean in ten minutes, ducking a Barrett Barrage and then hitting the Cross Rhodes.

Alicia Fox cuts a backstage promo swearing vengeance on Summer Rae.

JOHN CENA vs. ANTONIO CESARO vs. BIG E. LANGSTON (w/Mark Henry) vs. KANE (w/Team Anger)-
The announcers push how brave Cesaro is to be fighting tonight despite the heinous attack by Brock on Raw. His ribs are taped, so the announcers speculate that perhaps Brock’s initial kick injured them. Cesaro’s ribs get worked over throughout the match, and at one point when he hits the Gotch-Style Neutralizer on Cena, he cannot capitalize on it because of his injured ribs. Kane soon comes in and tosses Cesaro out of the ring and then picks Cena up by the throat and Chokeslams him for the pin in fifteen minutes.

10-WAY MATCH FOR A SHOT AT THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE AT JUDGMENT DAY: Zack Ryder vs. Heath Slater vs. Kofi Kingston (w/Big Show) vs. Wesley Blake (w/Brie Bella) vs. Adrian Neville (w/Justin Gabriel) vs. Sami Zayn (w/Kevin Owens) vs. Titus O’Neil (w/Darren Young) vs. Damien Sandow (w/the Brain Trust) vs. Primo Colon (w/Epico Colon & Rosa Mendes) vs. R-Truth (w/Team Anger)-
Kofi wins clean in fifteen minutes, priming Primo after Trouble in Paradise.

Swagger wins clean with the Patriot Act in twenty minutes. We use our remaining time to push the PPV.
