WWE Network Special Live from New York on Saturday Night: (10/3/2015)- New York, NY

The show opens with the Colons angrily coming out and DEMANDING to know who this big surprise mystery team is that is such a big deal that Steph was going to let them leapfrog over everyone in the division and get a tag title shot. Steph comes out and asks for a referee and tells the Colons to be careful what they wish for. If they want to find out who the mystery team is, they can face them right now…

THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes) vs. THE DUDLEY BOYZ!
Bubba and Devon return to WWE in NYC and hopefully get a monstrous pop. They win clean in seven minutes with the Dudley Death Drop on Primo. Epico attacks them from behind after the match so they put him through a table.

BATTLE ROYALE FOR THE REMAINING SPOT IN THE KING OF THE RING TOURNAMENT-
It comes down to International Airstrike 2.0 facing off against each other before Neville finally eliminates Gabriel.

NO DISQUALIFICATIONS HANDICAP MATCH: Mark Henry & Big E. Langston vs. The League of Nations (Sylvester Lefort, Wade Barrett, & Alexander Rusev) (w/Lana)-
Lefort spends most of the match trying to run away from Mark and Big E. We tease them getting him a bunch of times but someone from the League always breaks it up. Wade pins Big E. after the Barrett Barrage to win.

IF ASHLEY & NAOMI WIN, NAOMI WILL EARN A SHOT AT ASHLEY’S DIVAS TITLE: Ashely Flair & Naomi (w/David Otunga) vs. Emma & Paige-
They go for about ten minutes before Paige nails Ashley with the Rampage and goes for the pin but Otunga is distracting the referee. Eventually Naomi makes Emma tap to the Figure Four.

KING OF THE RING FIRST-ROUND MATCH: Rhyno vs. Dolph Ziggler (w/Paul Heyman)-
Dolph wins clean in fifteen minutes with the sleeper hold
KING OF THE RING FIRST-ROUND MATCH: Brock Lesnar (w/Paul Heyman) vs. Damien Sandow (w/the Brain Trust)-
Brock mauls Sandow and beats him five minutes.

KING OF THE RING FIRST-ROUND MATCH: Chris Jericho vs. Roman Reigns-
Roman over clean in twenty-five minutes. Jericho puts him over huge on the mic afterwards as well.

FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE MATCH: Tyson Kidd vs. The Miz-
Nattie isn’t out here with Tyson. The announcers speculate that perhaps they thought there was a chance that Miz would try to attack her.
Tyson beats the crap out of Miz all over the ringside area and into the crowd. Eventually they make it onto the stage where Miz manages to catch Tyson with a low blow. Miz hits the Skull-Crushing Finale onto the stage but Tyson kicks out. Miz goes for the cover again but Tyson kicks out again.
Miz changes tactics and now decides to cut and run backstage, and a cameraman follows. The announcers note that Miz seems to be heading to the parking lot, and they speculate that he is trying to escape in his car as he has done many times before in this feud. When he gets to his car he lets out a horrified scream as he sees that all of the tires have been removed. Miz starts to scream at a parking attendant, demanding to know how this happened. Just then, Nattie shows up with a big smile on her face and a big tire iron in her hand. Miz runs over to her and stars to scream at her. Nattie, for her part, throws the tire iron way over Miz’s head. When Miz turns around to see why she did this, he sees Tyson Kidd catch the tire iron. Tyson nails Miz in the gut with the tire iron a few times, then double-legs him to go for the Sharpshooter… but instead of lock the move in himself, he grins and hands Miz’s legs to Nattie, offering the honors to her. Nattie takes Miz’s legs and starts to step through like she is going for the Sharpshooter but hesitates, and instead of step through, she just stomps down on The Miz’s genitals (JBL shouts that that was uncalled-for but Cole and Byron remind him that those are what got Miz into this situation in the first place). Nattie hands Miz’s legs back to Tyson who locks in the Sharpshooter and Miz taps.

WWE WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: The Usos(c) vs. Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose-
Seth & Dean win clean in twenty-five minutes, and the best buddies are now the WWE World Tag Team Champions together.

Tonight’s Raw is one you definitely don’t want to miss a moment of as it will kick off with the next match in the King of the Ring tournament, featuring Big Show vs. Adrian Neville, and the main event will be yet another King of the Ring first-round match pitting Randy Orton against Kane! Plus, in anticipation of their mentors’ King of the Ring tournament match on Main Event, Mark Henry’s protégé Big E. Langston will face Bray Wyatt’s follower Erick Rowan!
But that’s not all! Also on this show we see the legendary Dudley Boyz make their return to Raw after a ten year absence to face the team they were originally scheduled to face on Saturday night, the now-former WWE World Tag Team Champions The Usos!
Plus, we will hear from other King of the Ring competitors such as John Cena, Wade Barrett, Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger, and Roman Reigns, and our NEW WWE World Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose.



Raw: (10/5/2015)- Boston, MA

KING OF THE RING TOURNAMENT FIRST-ROUND MATCH: Adrian Neville (w/Justin Gabriel) vs. Big Show (w/Kofi Kingston)-
Neville wins clean in twenty minutes, pinning Big Show after several kicks to the head and three Red Arrows. The announcers put this over as a massive upset and say that this proves that anything can happen in this tournament.
The announcers then recap the three KOTR first-round matches that happened at MSG on Saturday and hype up the four still to come this week, including tonight’s Kane vs. Orton main event.

Paul Heyman cuts a promo recapping Lesnar’s mauling of Sandow on Saturday night in the first round of KOTR. Dolph Ziggler cuts a promo telling us that his defeat of former ECW World Heavyweight Champion Rhyno in the first round of KOTR at MSG this weekend once again proves that he is the greatest Paul Heyman Guy of all time. The announcers note that Dolph’s statement would imply that he is better than Brock. They also note that it’s possible for these two to meet in the finals of KOTR for the World Heavyweight Title.

ALICIA FOX vs. BRIE BELLA-
They go for about eight minutes until we get a ref bump. Fox eventually hits her moonsault but there is no referee to count the pin. Eventually the ref recovers and Brie pins Fox after the Bella Buster.
When we return from commercial Alicia Fox is in the ring. She calls out Steph and complains that she had the match won but the referee was down. Steph comes out and says that she has a point and books a rematch for next week.
Then Ryback’s music plays and Ryback comes out alone. The announcers comment that this is very unusual for a member of the Wyatt Family to do, as Bray is almost always with them when they speak and usually does most of the speaking. Ryback rather humbly asks Steph if he could have another shot at the IC Title because he didn’t get pinned in his match against Roman last week. Ryback acknowledges that this is a big ask and he understands if she says no. Steph nearly bursts out laughing at Ryback’s request. She reminds him that he got DQed because his buddies got caught interfering on his behalf, just like they have done before. She says she doesn’t know what Bray is trying to pull by sending Ryback out here and asking for such a ridiculous favor, but she’s tired of having her time wasted. Ryback starts to say something starting with “But Bray” but Steph cuts him off and tells him that she doesn’t want to hear it, and that he shouldn’t bother her again unless he has a legitimate grievance like Alicia has here.

The Usos cut a promo backstage promo saying that they will get their belts back from Rollins & Ambrose when they get their rematch at King of the Ring…but for now, they are focused on their match with the greatest tag team of all time: The Dudley Boyz.

We get a quick video of Rollins & Ambrose celebrating with their newly-won tag titles as they head out on the road for the Best Buddies Tour of a nation-wide WWE sponsor/eatery for the next week.

KOFI KINGSTON vs. TITUS O’NEIL (w/Darren Young)-
The announcers note that Big Show is not out here with Kofi like he usually is because he is so disappointed that he was eliminated from KOTR that he is heading home to collect himself. Kofi wins clean in ten minutes with Trouble in Paradise.

Renee Young interviews Tyson Kidd about his victory over The Miz last night. Tyson says he is glad that Miz finally got what was coming to him after he not only tried to hit on Nattie but also concocted a scheme to try to seduce her by putting her in danger so that he could be the hero. Tyson says he is now waiting for whatever the next challenge is that he will face.


Naomi comes out and demands that Ashley Flair come out and give her the title shot she promised her she would get if they won at MSG. Instead of Ashley it is Paige who comes out and points out that she had Ashley pinned last night well before Naomi made Emma tap. Naomi retorts that she didn’t see that, and neither did the referee so it doesn’t matter. She once again demands her rematch and threatens to have Otunga sue Ashley and WWE if she doesn’t get it.
Ashley comes out and tries to talk her way out of giving Naomi her title shot tonight, saying that she wasn’t planning on doing the match tonight so she’s night ready yet. Paige points out that Ashley is now ducking Naomi “just like she has been ducking me for months. But at least she’s ducking someone unworthy this time.”
Naomi gets upset at this. Steph comes out and books announces that Naomi will get her title shot this week on Smackdown. She also promises to give Paige a chance to earn herself a title shot soon, and announces that the first step in this will be Paige facing Tamina on Main Event.

The League of Nations cut a promo backstage. Both Lana and Lefort say that Rusev should have been in King of the Ring as well but WWE is “afraid” of how dominant he will be and they will never be able to get the title off of him. Lefort says that the only person in WWE who has a chance at beating Rusev would be Barrett, but his two clients will never face each other because the League of Nations is a united front. Lefort espouses confidence that Wade will win KOTR and become the next World Heavyweight Champion, but also says that Rusev will be the man to dethrone Cesaro for the WWE Title.

KALISTO vs. DARREN YOUNG (w/Titus O’Neil)-
Kalisto catches Darren with a quick roll-up in just six minutes.

The Dudleys cut a promo talking about how excited they are to be back in WWE and announce that they are here to win the tag titles.

MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY vs. ZACK RYDER vs. ANTONIO CESARO vs. TYSON KIDD (w/Natalya Neidhart)-
Tyson wins clean in thirteen minutes, pinning McGillicutty.

Byron Saxton interviews Miz about his loss to Tyson Kidd last night. Miz claims says that if it wasn’t for the injuries that barbarian Tyson Kidd and his crazy wife inflicted on him last night he would have already beaten John Cena in his King of the Ring match and would be well on his way to becoming the first person to hold the US Title and World Heavyweight Title at the same time. But despite what happened last night, Miz is still the US Champion and Tyson Kidd will never be any sort of champion, so that’s what really counts. (“Plus, I don’t need Nattie. I could get with a hot blonde Canadian any time I want!”)

THE DUDLEY BOYZ vs. THE USOS-
They go for about a minute before The Colons run out and assault them both with chairs and take them out. The announcers are shocked that this violent outburst.

Renee Young tries to get an interview with Randy Orton about his KOTR first-round match with Kane in tonight’s main event but Randy ignores her.

HEATH SLATER vs. DAVID OTUNGA (w/Naomi)-
Otunga wins clean in four minutes. Naomi joins the commentary team to talk up her title shot on Smackdown. After the match Otunga cuts a promo letting us all know that Sandow isn’t here tonight because of the injuries that Luddite Brock Lesnar inflicted on him in their KOTR first-round match, but Sandow should be back in action later this week.

Team Anger cut a promo saying that KOTR is the perfect opportunity for them to prove that anger is the best motivator by having one of their guys defeat the best the WWE has to offer and become the World Heavyweight Champion.

BIG E. LANGSTON (w/Mark Henry) vs. ERICK ROWAN (w/the Wyatt Family)-
The Wyatts attack Mark and Big E. from behind on their way down the ramp. They grab Mark, bring him over to the big WWE logo and the stage, and Bray drives his head into it with the Monster Tamer.
Once the match starts, the Wyatts are up to their usual tricks, with one distracting the referee so that the others can interfere. After a few minutes of this, IC Champion Roman Reigns and WWE Champion Cesaro come out to fight the Wyatts, and the announcers remind us that the Wyatts used these same tactics against Cesaro last month and against Roman just a few days ago on Smackdown. Things spill into the ring, resulting in a DQ. A bunch of security comes out to break it up.

John Cena cuts a promo talking up his big win at the non-Network special house shows over the weekend. He says that he will win King of the Ring and the World Heavyweight Title to prove that he can still come through in high-pressure situations.

KING OF THE RING TOURNAMENT FIRST-ROUND MATCH: Randy Orton vs. Kane (w/Team Anger)-
Orton wins clean in twenty minutes with the punt to the skull.



On Tuesday morning WWE.com announces that Mark Henry has been cleared to face Bray Wyatt in their King of the Ring first-round match tonight on Main Event despite their cowardly attack against him last night on Raw. The Dudley Boyz and the Usos were not so lucky, as both of them will be out of action due to the injuries they suffered at the hands of the Colons.

WWE Main Event: (10/6/2015)
DAVID OTUNGA (w/Naomi) vs. JUSTIN GABRIEL (w/Adrian Neville)-
The announcers plug both King of the Ring (which Neville advanced in on Raw) and Naomi’s upcoming shot at the Divas Title on Smackdown.
They go for about six minutes at which point Gabriel hits his finisher and appears to have the match won but Naomi puts Otunga’s foot on the ropes. About a minute later Naomi distracts Gabriel, allowing Otunga to cut him off, which sets Otunga down the path to victory in nine minutes with the Verdict.
After the match Otunga announces that Damien Sandow will be back in action this week on Smackdown.

PAIGE vs. TAMINA SNUKA (w/Summer Rae)-
Summer distracts the ref, allowing Ashley Flair to interfere and cost Paige the match.

THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes) vs. TWO JOBBERS-
The Colons viciously squash the jobbers in three minutes. The announcers put over their new-found aggressiveness.

KING OF THE RING FIRST-ROUND MATCH: Bray Wyatt (w/the Wyatt Family) vs. Mark Henry (w/ Big E. Langston, Antonio Cesaro, & Roman Reigns)-
Stuff happens. The Wyatts try to interfere but Roman, Cesaro, and Big E. stop them. This leads to a brawl that spills backstage, leaving the two guys in the match alone to finish it off one-on-one. Bray eventually pins Mark with the Monster Tamer in however much TV time we have remaining.


On Wednesday morning, WWE.com makes two announcements:
1) A HUGE eight-man tag team match has been signed for Smackdown, pitting the Wyatt Family against Mark Henry, Big E. Langston, IC Champion Roman Reigns and WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro!
2) Kevin Owen has been cleared to return to action and will do so this Thursday on Smackdown!

On Thursday morning, WWE.com makes the following announcement:
Damien Sandow has informed WWE that his recovery is not going as well as previously thought and so he will not be returning to action on Smackdown as previously announced. Additionally, his tag team partner David Otunga has asked for time off to visit Sandow in the hopes that intellectual conversation will lift his spirits which have been dampened by his inability to return to action as expected. WWE has granted Mr. Otunga time to do this, so he will not be on this week’s Smackdown, as well as this weekend’s live events.


Smackdown: (10/8/2015)- Philadelphia, PA

Smackdown opens with Steph in the ring, hyping up tonight’s two first-round KOTR matches: Jack Swagger vs. Wade Barrett and John Cena vs. US Champion The Miz!
Miz comes out and tells Steph that he is still too injured from last weekend’s Falls Count Anywhere match with Tyson Kidd to be able to compete as scheduled tonight. Steph suggests that Miz wait an hour and then see how he feels. Miz says okay and heads to the back.
Steph then starts to hype up the Divas Title match and asks the champion and challenger to come out to the ring. They do. Then Paige comes out, too, and starts yelling at Ashley for interfering in her match against Tamina on Main Event. Steph tells Paige that she understands her frustration, but warns her not to interfere in tonight’s Divas Title match. Steph offers to help Paige by giving her something to take her mind off of the match. She books Paige in a rematch against Tamina tonight on Smackdown and tells Paige to go prepare for her match. Steph then tells Lilian Garcia to make with the official introductions because our Divas Title match will take place right now!

WWE DIVAS TITLE MATCH: Ashley Flair(c) vs. Naomi-
We start off and then immediately go to a commercial. When we come back the announcers recap the earlier segment for us as well as point out that Naomi doesn’t have Sandow or Otunga at ringside with her tonight and they give the explanation for that as well. Ashley retains in ten minutes via roll-up with her feet on the ropes for illegal leverage.

Team Anger cut a backstage promo in which Kane and Truth impress upon Swagger that due to Kane’s loss on Raw, he is the only one left who can prove the power of anger as a motivational tool by winning King of the Ring and becoming the next World Heavyweight Champion.

KEVIN OWENS vs. A JOBBER-
Owens squashes the jobber in thirty seconds. After the match, he cuts a promo saying that unlike Damien Sandow, Sami Zayn’s injury really is taken longer to head than the doctors first thought, but Sami should be back in about two weeks.
He also says that the real reason Sandow and Otunga aren’t here is because they are cowards. Owens notes that the announcement that Sandow wouldn’t return as scheduled and that Otunga wanted to take time off to visit him was made AFTER it was announced that Owens would be returning to action tonight, and Owens says he had been lobbying Steph for a match with one of them to make them pay for what they did to him and Sami. He says that they can’t hide forever, and when they finally get the balls to show up, he’ll be waiting.

Zack Ryder cuts a backstage promo in which he talks about how disappointed he was to be left off of the WWE Network special at MSG because MSG is where he would go to see WWE shows as a kid. He says he will rededicate himself to wrestling and vows to not only be on the card when WWE returns to New York City, but to be a champion!

KING OF THE RING TOURNAMENT FIRST-ROUND MATCH: Jack Swagger (w/Team Anger) vs. Wade Barrett (w/the League of Nations)-
Barrett wins clean in fifteen minutes with the Barrett Barrage.

We get a promo live via satellite from the Dudleys. They apologize to the fans in Philly for not being able to be there in person, but due to the injuries they sustained at the hands of the Colons on Raw, WWE doctors won’t clear them to compete, and Steph knew them well enough to know that wouldn’t stop them, so she ordered them not to show up or else they’d be fired. They say they have to look after their families now, so as much as they’d love to be there, it’s not worth getting fired to go have a fight that they are confident Steph will make sure they get the chance to have as soon as they are healthy. They warn the Colons that they made a huge mistake making enemies out of the Dudley Boyz, and if they don’t understand why, all they need to do is ask any fan Philadelphia, because they’ve seen what the Dudleys are capable of when they’re pissed off.

ZACK RYDER vs. BO DALLAS-
About half way through the match, Miz surprised everyone by coming out to do commentary. He buries Zack Ryder’s earlier promo and calls Ryder a joke. Eventually Miz gets up and distracts Ryder, allowing Bo to roll him up for the win in about five minutes. Ryder yells at Miz after the match but eventually turns around to go back up the ramp. When he does, Miz gets up, runs into the ring behind him and jumps him from behind. Miz beats Ryder down and finishes it off with a Skull-Crushing Finale, then poses with his US Title belt.

INTERNATIONAL AIRSTRIKE 2.0 vs. THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes)-
The Colons gets the heat on Neville and do a good number on him, beating him down. Neville manages to make the tag to Gabriel, but Rosa distracts the ref so Neville is forced to come back in. More beating down ensues and we get the standard spot where the heels do a double team so the other babyface tries to come in but the ref stops him, thus distracting the referee even more. While this is happening, Rosa slides the legal Colon a pair of brass knuckles, which he nails Neville with. The legal Colon goes for the pin while the other Colon runs around and pulls Gabriel off of the apron. The ref admonishes him for his, but now that he is free of distraction, the ref turns around, sees Neville being pinned, and counts the pinfall for a Colons victory in just seven minutes. Michael Cole decries this cheating while JBL points out that the Colons just pinned one of the men in the King of the Ring tournament to crown a new World Heavyweight Champion and puts over their new, more aggressive attitude.

Kofi Kingston cuts a backstage promo reminding us that Big Show isn’t here tonight because he was so distraught over getting eliminated from King of the Ring in the first round that he asked for some time at home. Kofi says that he is sure his partner will be back soon, but until then he’ll be flying solo.

Steph calls out Miz to ask him about his status for his KOTR first-round match scheduled for tonight. Miz says he is still too hurt from Tyson match to be in tournament tonight and asks is she can put his match off until Raw. Steph says she is on a tight schedule and can’t do that, so if Miz says he can’t compete tonight then she has to pull him out of the tournament… and she thinks it’s only right to replace him with the guy who he says is responsible for him not being able to compete tonight: Tyson Kidd.
Miz starts to panic and assures Steph he will be ready by tomorrow and can she please put the match off for one night and do it tomorrow night as the featured match on Superstars? Steph says she can’t do that because John Cena won’t be available because he is doing an appearance for *insert charity here*… but if Miz is certain he will be ready to wrestle tomorrow night, she is sure Zack Ryder would love to get his hands on him in tomorrow night’s featured match on Superstars. Miz is unhappy about this but recognizes he has been hoisted on his own petard.
(The announcers also make it clear that because of his actions in the Ryder vs. Bo match, Steph knows that Miz is faking and she is just setting him up to screw himself out of his spot in the tournament.)

KOFI KINGSTON vs. HEATH SLATER-
Kofi wins clean in three minutes with Trouble in Paradise.

THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS & MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY vs. KALISTO, RANDY ORTON, & DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman)-
The announcers focus on the question of whether Randy and Dolph can work together knowing they will face each other in the second round of King of the Ring. There is some tension there, but it doesn’t hurt the team much. It is actually Kalisto who picks up the win, hitting McGillicutty with the Salida Del Sol for the victory in seven minutes.

John Cena cuts a backstage promo saying that the change of opponent means nothing to him. His mission is to win King of the Ring and become the next World Heavyweight Champion to prove that he can still come through in high-pressure situations.

PAIGE vs. TAMINA SNUKA (w/Summer Rae)-
Paige dominates the match, working over Tamina’s knee the whole time, and gets the submission victory with the Stretch Muffler in five minutes.

Tyson Kidd (w/Nattie) cuts a backstage promo saying he is thankful to Steph for this opportunity in King of the Ring and says he’ll do his best to make the most of it.

THE WYATT FAMILY vs. ANTONIO CESARO, ROMAN REIGNS, MARK HENRY, & BIG E. LANGSTON-
Things quickly break down into a wild brawl all around ringside. Eventually, while everyone else is engaged in brawling on the outside, Ryback shocks everyone pinning WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro clean as a sheet with the Shell Shock in fourteen minutes.

KING OF THE RING FIRST-ROUND MATCH: John Cena vs. Tyson Kidd (w/Natalya)-
Cena wins clean in fifteen minutes with the AA in a total babyface vs. babyface match.



Superstars: (10/9/2015)
Tonight’s featured match is Zack Ryder vs. The Miz. We recap the angle from Smackdown that resulted in Miz’s lying and attempts to put off his KOTR first-round match instead screwing him out of the tournament entirely, as well as Miz’s targeting of Ryder. For Ryder’s part we recap his promo about being sad about not being booked on the MSG show and his vow to be a champion when WWE returns to NYC.

ZACK RYDER vs. THE MIZ-
Ryder wins in twenty minutes, pinning Miz clean in the middle of the ring with the Rough Ryder. The announcers put over that this will obviously set Ryder up for the very title shot he needs to fulfill his vow.

Tonight’s Raw is one you don’t want to miss, as it will be headlined by the first King of the Ring second-round match pitting Bray Wyatt vs. “The Beast” Brock Lesnar. It will also feature something of a preview of the second-round match we’ll see on Smackdown as opponents Wade Barrett and Adrian Neville will both take their usual tag team partner with them into battle against each other in a big tag team match. Also on tonight’s show will be Team Anger vs. Cena, Reigns, and McGillicutty as well as a rematch from last week’s controversial Raw match with Alicia Fox taking on Brie Bella.


Natalya Neidhart will not be on WWE for the next week and a half because she is doing publicity work for WWE in her native Canada.

Raw (10/12/2015)- Chicago, IL
Raw opens with Steph in the ring to hype up tonight’s King of the Ring semifinal match (Bray vs. Lesnar), tomorrow night’s (Orton vs. Ziggler), Smackdown’s (Barrett vs. Neville) and next week’s match on Raw (Cena vs. Roman). She then says that the real reason she is out here is to make a major announcement: Because Ryback pinned the WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro on Smackdown, he will be getting a WWE Title shot tomorrow night on Main Event.
As Steph is ready to leave, David Otunga comes out in full suit and tie lawyer garb, complete with briefcase. He tells Steph that he absolutely must protest the “slanderous” accusations about the Brain Trust that Kevin Owens made on WWE television last week on Smackdown. The Brain Trust are absolutely not cowards, and unless both Owens recants his statements tonight and WWE disavows Owens’ statements then he will be forced to take legal action against Mr. Owens and possibly even against World Wrestling Entertainment.
Steph: You are saying you are considering suing WWE for Owens’ so-called “slander?”
Otunga: I hope it doesn’t come to that, ma’am, but the Brain Trust will take the necessary legal actions to protect our professional reputations.
Steph: David, in order for something to be slanderous it has to be false, correct?
Otunga: That’s correct, ma’am.
Steph: Well Kevin Owens said you were afraid to face him. If Kevin’s statement is false, then you should have no problem wrestling him tonight on Raw, right here in Chicago, right?

Otunga fumbles around looking for a way out of this match, finally claiming that he can’t wrestle because he doesn’t have his gear with him. Steph tells him then he’ll just have to wrestle in his suit… and that his match is next.

DAVID OTUNGA vs. KEVIN OWENS-
Owens tosses Otunga around for a minute or two before Otunga grabs his briefcase to use as a weapon. Owens Gets his arm up and blocks it, but that still warrants a disqualification. Otunga then tries to take the fight to Owens, but Owens makes his comeback. In Owens’ attempts to get his hands on Otunga, he winds up stripping him down to his yellow boxers, which Owens notes is “a very appropriate color” while Otunga flees up the ramp.


Bray Wyatt cuts a backstage promo. He says that winning the World Heavyweight Title would prove to the world that Bray Wyatt can teach you how to conquer anything, and that Ryback winning the WWE Title will do the same. He claims that getting Ryback DQed in his IC Title match on the October 1st Smackdown was a move designed to set into motion the events that occurred over the course of the past week, resulting his “loyal follower” Ryback pinning the WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro to earn the WWE Title match he’ll be getting tomorrow night on Main Event.
He also claims that Steph is still afraid of his message, but doesn’t want to admit it, so she put him in the tournament so she could make it look like she wasn’t afraid of him winning, but then she stacked the deck against him, having him face the World’s Strongest Man in the first round and setting things up so that if he did get past Mark Henry, he would have to face Brock Lesnar in the second round.
Well he defeated the World’s Strongest Man last week, and tonight he will defeat Brock Lesnar and go on to win King of the Ring and the World Heavyweight Title because “when you believe in Bray Wyatt, all things are possible.”

Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose return from their “Best Buddies Tour” and appear on WWE with the tag titles for the first time since they won them at the WWE Network special from MSG last weekend. They start to cut a promo, but The Colons come out and challenge them to a match. They accept, and a referee comes out, meaning Steph has approved it, so we get…

SETH ROLLINS & DEAN AMBROSE vs. THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes)-
The Colons are very aggressive right out of the gate, cutting Rollins off quickly and getting heat on him for a while. Eventually he makes the hot tag and the match turns into a hard-hitting slugfest. Eventually after twenty minutes, The Colons pull out the upset win over Rollins & Ambrose in their first match as champions, with Primo pinning Dean.
After the match we go to commercial. When we return, Renee Young is standing by with Dean Ambrose. Renee first explains to us that Seth isn’t here because he is being checked on by medical people after the long beating he just took.
Renee asks Dean if he has any comment on him and Seth losing their first match as tag champs. Dean starts to talk about how they are going to do better, but he is interrupted by Team Anger, who tell Dean that he lost because he was not channeling his anger into determination, and if he wants to do better, he will need to focus more on his anger.


Bo Dallas cuts a backstage promo to hype up his match tonight in which he will be teaming with Dolph Ziggler to face Kalisto and Zack Ryder. He says he is excited to have the great Pau Heyman in his corner for this match and hopes that he will be able to impress Paul enough that Paul will take him under his wing and endorse him as one of his elite Paul Heyman Guys.

KOFI KINGSTON & BIG SHOW vs. MARK HENRY & BIG E. LANGSTON-
Kofi pins Big E. in ten minutes after slipping out of an attempted Big Ending and then hitting Trouble In Paradise.

Sylvester Lefort cuts a promo saying that he hasn’t forgotten that International Airstrike 2.0 rejected his offer to manage them two weeks ago, so tonight he and the League of Nations are going to make them pay.

ZACK RYDER & KALISTO vs. BO DALLAS & DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman)-
Kalisto pins Bo clean in six minutes with Salida Del Sol.

Randy Orton cuts a promo hyping up his King of the Ring second-round match against Dolph Ziggler tomorrow night

ALICIA FOX vs. BRIE BELLA-
The announcers remind us that this match is happening because last week Fox hit her moonsault but the referee had been bumped so there was no one to count the pin when she went for it, and then she eventually lost to Brie, so Fox asked Steph for a rematch and was granted one. This time around there are no ref bumps and Fox hits her moonsault and wins clean in eight minutes.

Paul Heyman cuts a promo describing how Brock Lesnar will destroy Bray Wyatt tonight and go on to win King of the Ring and become the next World Heavyweight Champion. Paul then hastily adds that if Brock somehow doesn’t win the tournament, his other Paul Heyman Guy, Dolph Ziggler, surely will

INTERNATIONAL AIRSTRIKE 2.0 vs. THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS (w/Sylvester Lefort & Lana)-
The League of Nations win clean in ten minutes when Rusev makes Gabriel tap clean to the Accolade.

Byron Saxton interviews Tyson Kidd. He asks Tyson about his loss to John Cena in the first round of King of the Ring last Thursday on Smackdown. Tyson stars to say that he is disappointed that he lost, but he is interrupted by Team Anger, who tell him that Cena was able to beat him because Cena was more determined to win. They suggest that Tyson increase his determination by focusing on his anger and challenging that into determination.

We get a pre-taped promo from The Usos on the TitanTron saying that they want revenge on The Colons for attacking them and injuring them last week on Raw. The announcers note that this was similar to the promo that the Dudleys cut on Smackdown.

Naomi comes out to the ring and complains that Ashley used the ropes for illegal leverage to defeat her in their Divas Title match on Smackdown. Ashley comes out and calls Naomi a hypocrite because she has used such tactics in the past as well. Paige comes out and says that neither of these cheaters deserve to be champion. Steph comes out and says that Naomi and Paige both have a point, so she books them in a #1 contendership match on Smackdown, with the winner getting a shot at the Divas Title at Hell in a Cell.

Miz cuts a promo claiming that the only reason he lost to Zack Ryder in last week’s featured match on Superstars was because he was still injured from his Falls Count Anywhere match against Tyson Kidd at last weekend’s WWE Network special from MSG.

TEAM ANGER vs. JOHN CENA, ROMAN REIGNS, & MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY-
The announcers wonder whether Cena and Roman, opponents next week in a King of the Ring second-round match, will be able to work together here. They mostly are, but towards the end of the match we get a spot where Roman goes to spear Truth but Truth sidesteps it and Roman accidentally spears Cena instead. JBL insists that Roman did this on purpose, but Cole is says it was clearly an accident. Team Anger win in fifteen minutes when Truth pins McGillicutty after hitting him with his finisher.

Cesaro cuts a promo hyping up his WWE Title defense against Ryback tomorrow night on Main Event and vowing to win, even if the rest of the Wyatts interfere.


KING OF THE RING SECOND-ROUND MATCH: Brock Lesnar (w/Paul Heyman) vs. Bray Wyatt (w/the Wyatt Family)-
Brock wins decisively in fifteen minutes, pinning Bray with the F-5 and tossing the other Wyatts around any time they attempt to interfere.




WWE.com reports that Seth Rollins sustained some minor injuries in his match last night and will need a few days to recover. He is expected to be ready to return to action by this week’s Smackdown, when he Dean Ambrose will make their first defense of the WWE World Tag Team Titles against the team that defeated them on Raw and injured him: The Colons.


Main Event: (10/13/2015)
DEAN AMBROSE vs. BO DALLAS-
Before the match, Bo cuts a promo saying that he hopes he will be able to use this big opportunity to defeat one half of the WWE World Tag Team Champions and position himself for a title shot. Dean comes out just beats the living sh*t out of Bo. The announcers remark on how very angry and violent Dean is being, and wonder if he has taken Team Anger’s advice to heart.

HEATH SLATER vs. RUSEV (w/the League of Nations)-
Rusev squashes Slater in one minute.

KING OF THE RING SECOND-ROUND MATCH: Randy Orton vs. Dolph Ziggler (w/Paul Heyman)-
About five minutes in we do a spot where Randy’s shoulder gets injured. Dolph works the shoulder for the next three or four minutes until Randy surprisingly taps out. (This is done to let Orton take time off for his shoulder surgery. We do it on Main Event so we can edit something out if it looks bad due to Randy’s injury).

WWE TITLE MATCH: Antonio Cesaro(c) vs. Ryback (w/the Wyatt Family)-
The match is very even for a while, but Ryback starts to take over when the Wyatts pull their usual tactics of distracting the ref and interfering. This eventually backfires on them when Ryback hits Shellshock and has Cesaro pinned by the referee is still distracted, yelling at Bray. Cesaro eventually makes a comeback and gets the win in twenty minutes to retain the WWE Title.
Hold #712: ARM BAR!

There is only one word to describe tonight’s Smackdown: HUGE!
Not only will the WWE World Tag Titles be defended, the #1 contender to the Divas Title will be determined and the next King of the Ring second-round match will take place, but WWE General Manager Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley will also be making a major announcement regarding #1 contendership to the WWE Title at King of the Ring!


Smackdown: (10/15/2015)- Cincinnati, OH
Smackdown opens with Steph in the ring, hyping tonight’s big show. She then announces that tonight’s main event will be a triple threat match between the three members of the WWE roster who were not part of the King of the Ring tournament who have had the best win-loss records since the tournament started. Those three men are Kofi Kingston, Kalisto, and Alexander Rusev… and the winner of that match will challenge Antonio Cesaro for the WWE Title in ten days at King of the Ring.
Ryback comes out and pleads with Steph to please put him in the match, too, because he had a visual pinfall on Cesaro on Main Event, and if Bray hadn’t distracted the referee, he would have won the title. Steph agrees, but tells Ryback not to expect any more chances if other the others members of the Wyatt Family get him trouble again tonight. Ryback thanks Steph profusely.

WWE WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose(c) vs. The Colons (w/Rosa Mendes)-
We get a big brawl to start things off. Things settle down a bit, then Primo pokes Dean in the eye so Dean starts to go nuts on both Colons, eventually getting DQed for not breaking in the corner even after a five count.

BO DALLAS vs. DAVID OTUNGA (w/Naomi)-
Otunga squashes Bo, then cuts a promo saying that now that he is ready and has his gear, he wants a match against Kevin Owens to avenge the humiliation he suffered at Owens’ hands on Raw. Owens shows up expecting a match right now, but Otunga says it wouldn’t be fair because Owens is fresh and he isn’t, so he wants the match to be this Monday on Raw. Owens accepts this challenge.

BIG SHOW (w/Kofi Kingston) vs. DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman)-
Dolph takes it hard to Big Show, and manages to pull off the victory in a surprisingly quick six minutes, choking Big Show out with the sleeper hold. After the match, Dolph grabs a mic and cuts a promo saying that he will win King of the Ring just as easily has he won this match… and then he turns to Heyman and emphasizes “no matter who I have to go through to do it.”

We get a backstage promo by the Wyatt Family in which Bray commanded Ryback’s initiative in asking Steph for another chance to earn a title shot, and says that the Wyatt Family will be at Brother Ryback’s side tonight. Ryback hesitantly tells Bray that he would prefer that they didn’t come out to ringside with him, noting that it hasn’t worked out well for him the last two times they have been out at ringside with him for a big match. Bray gets very icy, telling Ryback that he will surely fail in his endeavor without Bray Wyatt to guide him.
Ryback tells Bray that he will be there to guide him. He remembers all of the lessons Bray has taught him, and those lessons stay with him even when he is not with his brothers in the Wyatt Family. Ryback vows to win tonight in order to show the whole world what Bray’s message can help someone accomplish.
Bray says that Ryback is suffering from a lack of faith, but says that he will allow Ryback this heretical indulgence for tonight because he knows that this testing of faith will only make Ryback’s faith in the message of Bray Wyatt stronger in the end.

KING OF THE RING SECOND-ROUND MATCH: Adrian Neville (w/Justin Gabriel) vs. Wade Barrett (w/the League of Nations)-
They go for about twelve minutes of back and forth action until we get a big double-down spot. The League tries to take advantage of this with Rusev and Lana distracting the referee while Lefort sneaks into the ring to try to interfere, but Justin Gabriel slides into the ring as well and scares Lefort off. Gabriel decides that while he is in the ring he might as well try to help his partner out, so he lines the recovering Barrett up for a running dropkick, but Wade manages to get out of the way and Gabriel’s dropkick accidentally catches Neville instead. Barrett tosses Gabriel out of the ring, then knocks Neville out with the Barrett Barrage to advance to the semi-finals.

Roman Reigns cuts a promo putting over his King of the Ring second-round match against John Cena next week on Raw as the toughest match of his career thus far.

We get a backstage promo from the League of Nations in which Lefort complains that it’s not fair that Ryback got added to the #1 contendership match even though he doesn’t deserve it, but that won’t stop Rusev from winning, just like Barrett did earlier, and when King of the Ring is over, the League of Nations will hold both the WWE Title and World Heavyweight Title.

We get a promo from Kalisto hyping up tonight’s main event and talking about what a big opportunity this is for him.

Steph cuts a promo from her office, saying that after what happened in tonight’s King of the Ring match, she thinks that Ryback has the right idea, and so she is going to bar everyone from ringside for tonight’s main event.
She also announces that this weeks featured match on WWE Superstars will be a rematch of tonight’s WWE World Tag Team Title match… except that this time, the titles will change hands if the champions get disqualified.

TYSON KIDD vs. MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY-
Kidd is very aggressive and takes it to McGillicutty, dominating him and beating him cleanly in four minutes via Dungeon Lock.

Zack Ryder comes out to the ring and cuts a promo saying that Miz’s claim that the only reason he lost to Ryder last week on Superstars is that he is still recovering from his match against Tyson Kidd is just Miz making excuses. Ryder says he beat Miz fair and square, so he deserves a shot at the US Title, and he wants it now. Miz comes out and says that he really is injured and isn’t making excuses at all. Ryder says that’s BS and Miz is just trying to put the match off for as long as possible.
Steph comes out and says that under the Thirty Days Rule, the Miz must defend the title before Monday, October 26th… and it just so happens that the King of the Ring PPV is the night before, so that is when Ryder will get his title shot. She says that she knows Miz wouldn’t want to risk re-aggravating his injuries by having another match before then, so she will not book Miz in any more matches until then. Miz thanks Steph for this, but then Steph tells him that a WWE arena can be dangerous place and she wouldn’t want something to accidentally happen to Miz to injure him and force him to vacate the title, so she is sending him home until the PPV. Miz starts to protest this, saying that he needs to be on TV because he is a big Hollywood star, but Steph says they’ll manage without him. Miz still doesn’t want to leave, so she has security come and remove him from the building.

TEAM ANGER vs. HEATH SLATER & THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS-
Team Anger destroy them, with Swagger pinning Slater clean in four minutes with a sit-out gut-wrench powerbomb.

John Cena cuts a promo putting over his King of the Ring second-round match with Roman Reigns on Raw as being a big challenge for him.

#1 CONTENDERSHIP MATCH: Paige vs. Naomi (w/David Otunga)-
They go for seven or eight minutes before we get a ref bump. Otunga tries to interfere but Owens runs out to run him off. Eventually Ashley Flair comes out and lays Paige out with the Divas Title belt, then wakes up the referee to see Naomi pinning Paige for the win.

We get a promo from Kofi hyping up tonight’s main event and talking about what a big opportunity this is for him.

WWE TITLE #1 CONTENDERSHIP MATCH: Alexander Rusev vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Ryback vs. Kalisto-
Kofi wins clean in fifteen minutes, pinning Kalisto after Trouble in Paradise. Cesaro is on commentary and puts everyone over.



WWE Superstars (10/16/2015):

Tonight’s featured match will be Rollins & Ambrose defending the tag titles against the Colons in a match where the titles can change hands on a DQ. The interviews mostly focus on anger, will Ambrose, Tyson Kidd, The Colons, and Team Anger all talking about it as a powerful motivational tool. The Colons in particular focus on how they use anger to fuel their desire to make sure they are never embarrassed again the way the Dudleys embarrassed them two weeks ago at the WWE Network special from MSG. Rollins, on the other hand, cautions against anger, as letting it consume you can cause you to lose matches.
WWE WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH IN WHICH THE TITLES CAN CHANGE HANDS ON A DQ: Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose(c) vs. The Colons (w/Rosa Mendes)-
We get a few spots where Ambrose gets angry and almost gets his team DQed but Rollins manages to calm him down. One of them involves Ambrose poking Primo in the eye as revenge for last night (the ref then yells at Dean so Dean yells back at the ref, and Rollins has to run in and defuse things). Rollins and Ambrose control things early on, but then the Colons get heat on Ambrose. He eventually manages to make the hot tag to Rollins. Rollins and Ambrose then take over and Rollins manages to hit a Phoenix Splash, but Rosa puts Epico’s foot on the rope at the last moment. This infuriates Ambrose, who begins to stalk Rosa on the outside. While Ambrose is occupied with Rosa, the Colons double-team Seth. Seeing this, Rosa starts to lead Ambrose up the ramp. The Colons then hit Seth with their finisher and the ref goes for the pin, but Dean hears the ref going down to make the count and sprints back to the ring and is able to pull the Colon making the pin off of Seth at the very last moment. Soon after this, Rollins pins Primo with a backslide to retain the titles in twenty minutes.

WWE.com announces that WWE Champion Cesaro will not be at tonight’s Raw because he is doing publicity for WWE in Los Angeles for this Sunday’s King of the Ring PPV, but we will have some pre-recorded comments from Cesaro about his opponent on Sunday: Kofi Kingston.
Speaking of Kofi he will be in action tonight against Bo Dallas, while his tag team partner the Big Show will be in action against Erick Rowan of the Wyatt Family.
Also on tonight’s Raw, we will see a rematch from last week’s show pitting International Airstrike 2.0 against the League of Nations. Will Neville and Gabriel be able to work together after Gabriel accidentally cost Neville his King of the Ring second-round match against the League’s Wade Barrett on Smackdown?
Also scheduled for tonight’s Raw is Team Anger vs. The Wyatt Family, Tyson Kidd vs. Kalisto, the Prime Time Players vs. The Colons, Ashley Flair defends the Divas Title against Naomi, and in our main event, the final King of the Ring second-round match, pitting John Cena against Roman Reigns

Late in the day, WWE.com reports (and tweets out) that The Usos will be returning to action tonight on Raw for the first time since being attacked by Colons two weeks ago.


Raw: (10/19/2015)- Dallas, TX
Raw opens with Justin Gabriel coming out to the ring. He calls out Adrian Neville and says he wants to apologize once again for accidentally costing his King of the Ring second-round match. He says he went to Steph to try to get Neville a rematch against Barrett but Steph said the result will stand, so Gabriel asked Steph for a rematch from Raw instead so that he can help Neville at least get some sort of revenge on Wade. He suggests that this way, if Wade wins King of the Ring and becomes the next World Heavyweight Champion, Neville could have a claim to getting the first shot at the title.

INTERNATIONAL AIRSTRIKE 2.0 vs. THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS (w/Sylvester Lefort & Lana)-
Barrett and Neville start and they circle each other for a while… and then, right out of nowhere, Barrett spins around and catches Gabriel with a spinning backfist, knocking him off the apron and out cold. Medical people come out to take Justin to the back. Meanwhile, Neville is forced to wrestle a handicap match. He fights valiantly, but is eventually forced to tap out to Rusev’s Accolade in ten minutes.

We get a quick video recap of what went down between Miz, Ryder, and Steph on Smackdown to remind everyone why Miz isn’t here. We are told that he says he has signed the contract for the US Title match at King of the Ring, and that he has mailed it back to WWE with a video for them to play on Smackdown which will contain a special message for his challenger and for the WWE Universe.

TYSON KIDD vs. KALISTO-
Tyson wins clean in ten minutes with the Dungeon Lock. The announcers once again note that Tyson is being very aggressive. JBL points out that this benefited him here, as he was able to keep Kalisto off balance so he couldn’t set up for any of his lucha stuff.
Renee Young is ready backstage to get a reaction interview from Tyson. She asks him if he thinks his new strategy is paying off. Team Anger show up to tell Tyson that they definitely think it is paying off for him, and they are glad their suggestion has been able to help him. Tyson agrees with them.

THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS vs. THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes)-
The Colons win clean in seven minutes, pinning Darren after hitting him with their finisher. After the match, the Dudleys return, attacking the Colons. They set up to put Epico through a table, but Rosa runs in and hits Bubba with a low blow from behind, while Primo is able to save Epico from Devon. The Colons run off, through the crowd. Bubba grabs a mic and cuts a promo saying that there is nowhere for the Colons to hide. Every arena the Colons go to, they will be there, too, and they will make the Colons pay for trying to take them out. Devon adds in an “Oh my brother… TESTIFY!”

Bray Wyatt cuts a backstage promo in which he says that Ryback learned last week that the Wyatt Family being unified- standing together in their unflinching belief in Bray’s leadership- is the only path to success. Now that they are united once again, he says they will easily defeat Team Anger later tonight.

ZACK RYDER vs. HEATH SLATER-
Heath puts up a better fight than anyone expects him to. The story is based around Slater trying to hit… um… whatever his finisher is (“Sweetness,” I think) but Ryder keeps blocking or avoiding it. Ryder eventually picks up the clean win in eleven minutes with the Rough Ryder.

We get Cesaro’s prerecorded comments about his challenger on Sunday, Kofi Kingston. He is very respectful, and it appears we will be having a nice, happy babyface vs. babyface match.
WWE DIVAS TITLE MATCH: Ashley Flair(c) vs. Naomi (w/David Otunga)-
The match ends in a double DQ when Paige runs in and attacks both of them. Otunga tries to grab Paige but she kicks him in the nuts. Security shows up to pull Paige off of Naomi and Ashley. Steph comes out and tells Paige to go home don’t bother showing up for the rest of the week because she’s suspended… and if she interferes when Ashley and Naomi have their rematch this Sunday at King of the Ring, she shouldn’t bother showing up to work ever again after that.

THE USOS vs. MARK HENRY & BIG E. LANGSTON-
Usos win clean in ten minutes when they nail Big E. with a double-superkick, then double-superkick Mark off the apron, then hit their pair of diving splashes for the win. After the match, The Usos cut a promo saying that, like the Dudleys, they, too want to get revenge on the Colons for taking them out… but they’ll let the Dudleys have the first shot at the Colons because they have other business to attend to, first. They are still owed a rematch for the WWE World Tag Team Titles… and they want that rematch, this Sunday at King of the Ring!

BO DALLAS vs. KOFI KINGSTON (w/Big Show)-
Before Kofi’s entrance, Bo cuts an optimistic promo saying that he hopes he wins this match against the #1 contender to the WWE Title so that Steph will add him into the WWE Title match at King of the Ring.
Kofi wins clean in four minutes with Trouble in Paradise, dominating almost the entire match. After the match, Sylvester Lefort comes out. He complements Kofi on his impressive win tonight, comparing it to the League of Nations’ victory earlier over International Airstrike 2.0. Lefort offers Kofi membership in the League of Nations, but Kofi turns him down, saying he doesn’t want to be managed by a scumbag like Lefort. Lefort angrily walks off.

Byron Saxton interviews Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose backstage. He asks them to respond to The Usos’ challenge for a tag title match at King of the Ring, and they accept.
Then Team Anger shows up and they complement Dean on following their advice and focusing on his anger and channeling it into determination to help fuel his desire to win. Rollins gets in their faces and points out that Dean going this caused them to get DQed on Smackdown and almost caused them to lose the tag titles on Superstars. Team Anger points out that they didn’t lose the titles on Superstars, and credit the victory to Dean successfully channeling his anger, and say Dean-and Seth, too, if he wants to help his team- will need to do so even more to defeat The Usos at King of the Ring.
Rollins is clearly very suspicious, and asks Team Anger why they are even offering them advice in the first place. If they have some secret motivational tactic to help them win, doesn’t it benefit them to keep it to themselves?
Team Anger’s answer is essentially that they are trying to help the world by sharing this secret to success, but they know that people will never accept it coming from people like them (i.e. heels), but if they see a wrestler respected for his integrity like Dean Ambrose or Seth Rollins or Tyson Kidd implementing this strategy and becoming successful with it, then they will be more willing to accept it as legitimate and try it for themselves.
Rollins accuses them of being “con-men, just like Bray Wyatt,” which offends the three of them- particularly Kane. Ambrose also takes some slight offense to this and steps in to diffuse them, suggesting that they use the anger Seth has provoked in them to fuel their determination to defeat the Wyatt Family in their match against them, which is next.

TEAM ANGER vs. THE WYATT FAMILY (w/Erick Rowan)-
Team Anger wins clean in fifteen minutes when Kane pins Harper after a chokeslam. After the match, the Wyatts attack Team Anger and beat them down.

We get a backstage promo from Dolph Ziggler and Paul Heyman about King of the Ring. Things are tense between them after last week’s promo mishaps. Dolph cuts a promo saying he will win King of the Ring. Heyman then cuts a similar promo on behalf of Brock, but is certain to emphasize that he is sure that “one of the two Paul Heyman Guys” will come out on top.
The announcers speculate who Heyman would side with if the finals came down to Lesnar vs. Ziggler. They mostly agree that Heyman would stay with Brock, citing the events leading up to Brock vs. Cesaro at WrestleMania earlier this year.

KEVIN OWENS vs. DAVID OTUNGA (w/Naomi)-
IT’S A TRAP! Damien Sandow returns from his injury by coming out of the crowd by the ramp and takes Owens’ knee out from behind. Otunga and Sandow work over Owens’ knee until security shows up to stop them. Owens’ has to be helped to the back.

BIG SHOW (w/Kofi Kingston) vs. ERICK ROWAN (w/the Wyatt Family)-
Big Show beats Rowan clean in ten minutes. The Wyatts attack Big Show and Kofi after the match but Team Anger comes out and they brawl away with the Wyatts. Then the League of Nations come out to attack Kofi. Big Show comes over to defend his friend and tag team partner but Lefort hits him in the back with a chair. The League of Nations slam the ring steps down onto Big Show’s back a few times and then Rusev locks him in the Accolade. An angry Kofi Kingston makes the save, swinging a chair like a maniac, and the League runs off. Big Show’s back is hurt and medical people are summoned to tend to him. We are later told that his back has been injured and he will be out of action for an indefinite amount of time.

KING OF THE RING SECOND-ROUND MATCH: John Cena vs. Roman Reigns-
They have a long, hard-fought match. The finish comes when they are fighting on the outside and Roman goes for a spear but Cena gets out of the way and Roman crashes through the security barricade into the timekeeper’s area. Cena goes over to Roman and picks him up like he is going to drag him back into the ring, but then hesitates, and instead of pulling Roman towards the ring, he dumps Roman over the barricade and into the stands, then runs back to the ring to wait out the count-out victory in twenty-five minutes. Cole notes that this is a very un-Cena-like thing to do, while JBL commends Cena for realizing that it doesn’t matter how you win so long as you wind up with your hand raised at the end.


On Tuesday morning. WWE.com announces that a new match has been signed for King of the Ring: it will be all four members of the Wyatt Family taking on Team Anger and a partner of their choice.



Scheduled for tonight’s Main Event are Ryder vs. McGillicutty, Rollins & Ambrose vs. Prime Time Players, The Colons vs. R-Truth & Jack Swagger, and Tyson Kidd vs. Bo Dallas.


WWE Main Event: (10/20/2015)

SETH ROLLINS & DEAN AMBROSE vs. THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS-
They go for about ten minutes, with Dean becoming increasingly angry, almost getting DQ for shoving the referee and for not breaking in the corner. Finally Dean completely loses his cool and grabs a chair and brings it into the ring. Seth immediately rushes over to stop him, and he manages to talk Dean down, but his leads to Dean getting rolled up for a nearfall. Dean once again fills with anger and takes it to Darren Young hard, finally making him tap to the Regal Stretch… but Dean doesn’t break the hold after the bell ring, keeping it locked on until the referee threatens to reverse the decision and DQ them for excessive punishment, and even then it is only Rollins who can get him to break the hold.

TYSON KIDD vs. BO DALLAS-
While Tyson is on his way to the ring, the announcers note that Nattie should be back from her publicity tour of Canada tomorrow and should return to our WWE TV screens by Smackdown.
Tyson is fueled by his rage and pretty much squashes Bo, making him tap to the Dungeon Lock.

THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes) vs. R-TRUTH & JACK SWAGGER (w/Kane)-
As soon as the match starts, the Dudleys come out to attack the Colons, but Rosa spots them on their way down the ramp and the Colons flee. The Dudleys give chase, leading to a count-out victory for Team Anger.
Team Anger then cut a promo saying that while they are out here, they have an important decision to make tonight. They call out Tyson Kidd. Tyson comes out, and they once again commend him for channeling his anger into determination so effectively. They ask him to team with them against the Wyatt Family at King of the Ring. Tyson accepts.

MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY vs. ZACK RYDER-
Ryder wins clean in fifteen minutes.



WWE.com announces that the injuries to both Kevin Owens and Big Show will keep them out of action for an indefinite amount of time.


Smackdown: (10/22/2015)- Austin, TX

THE WYATT FAMILY vs. INTERNATIONAL AIRSTRIKE 2.0 & THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes)-
Once again, the Dudleys come out and chase the Colons away. This leaves Airstrike to fend for themselves against all four Wyatts. They try for a while, but the Wyatts isolate Neville and cut off the ring. He manages to make some crazy tag and Gabriel comes in and runs wild for a moment or two, but is eventually caught in a bear hug by Ryback and he taps out.
After the match, Bray cuts a promo saying that their opponents tonight were a team made up of men carrying much anger in them… but they were not unified the way the Wyatts are, and that unity is their strength. This Sunday, at King of the Ring, they will face another team that is full of anger, but is not unified the way the Wyatts are. Bray guarantees that they will defeat Team Anger at King of the Ring because for those who follow Bray Wyatt, anything is possible.

We get the promised video promo from Miz to build up his US Title defense again Zack Ryder. He buries Ryder for being a loser and says Ryder will never win the US or any other title.

JIMMY USO (w/Jey Uso) vs. DEAN AMBROSE (w/Seth Rollins)-
Like all of his recent matches since taking Team Anger’s advice last week, Ambrose gets angrier over the course of this match. Jimmy Uso manages to take advantage of this and bait Dean in, then catch him with an inside cradle for the win. The announcers point out to us that Dean’s anger cost him this match, and it happens again on Sunday, it will cost him and Rollins the WWE World Tag Team Titles.

Renee Young interviews Roman Reigns backstage. She asks him about his loss to Cena in the second round of King of the Ring on Monday. Roman says he is disappointed to be out of the tournament- especially when it was only a count-out loss- but now he is back to focusing on defending his Intercontinental Title against whoever his next challenger is… and as it so happens, he was just in Steph’s office and she told him she was going to make an announcement about that a bit later tonight.

BRIE BELLA vs. NATALYA NEIDHART (w/Tyson Kidd)-
The announcers point out that Tyson Kidd acting much differently that he usually does at ringside for Nattie’s matches. Instead of offering the occasional words of support or word of advice, he is now shouting at the referee every time he misses some of Brie’s heel tactics, and shouting rather violent instructions to Nattie, encouraging her to break Brie’s limbs. Nattie wins clean in six minutes with the Sharpshooter. Nattie gives Tyson a funny look on their way backstage.
Renee Young is in position to get a reaction interview with Nattie. She asks Nattie how it feels to be back. Nattie says it feels good, then jokes that it seems a little more bloodthirsty than she remembers. Just then, Team Anger show up and suggest to Tyson that they should talk strategy for their PPV match against the Wyatt Family.
Sylvester Lefort & Wade Barrett cut a backstage promo saying that Barrett will win the King of the Ring tournament and become the next World Heavyweight Champion.

ZACK RYDER vs. KALISTO-
Ryder wins clean in eight minutes. The announcers notice that Zack is very aggressive, and wonder if he, too, is following Team Anger’s advice, and Miz’s insulting video did nothing but increase Zack’s desire to win the title.

The Dudleys cut a backstage promo daring the Colons to “grow a pair” and face them like men instead of running away like cowards.

CAMERON vs. NAOMI (w/the Brain Trust)-
Naomi wins clean in five minutes. After the match, Ashley Flair comes out on the ramp and complains about having to put her Divas Title on the line against Naomi at King of the Ring, saying that Naomi doesn’t deserve another title shot because she wouldn’t have ever been #1 contender in the first place if Ashley hadn’t helped her out. Naomi responds with a promo of her own, telling Ashley not to underestimate her because “you might have learned from the Dirtiest Player in the Game…but I’m the smartest.”
Steph comes out and says that Ashley needs to suck it up and stop complaining. She made her own bed by helping Naomi become the #1 contender, and now she has to lie in it. She says that Ashley’s comments do resonate with her on some level: specifically, making sure that whoever walks out of Los Angeles as the Divas Champion will have truly earned it… so she is banning the Brain Trust from ringside.
Steph sends them all to the back, then proceeds to make her big announcement about #1 contendership for the IC Title. That announcement is that on the pre-show for King of the Ring, there will be a battle royale to determine who will face Roman Reigns for the IC Title later that night. Sylvester Lefort comes out and says that this is unfair and that Rusev should be granted a title shot because Roman has still never pinned him. Steph yells at Lefort, saying she is tired of his crap. She says that if he doesn’t think Rusev needs to be in the battle royale, then that’s fine. Rusev is now out of the battle royale. And while she’s at it, Sandow and Otunga are out, too. She is tired of these premeditated attacks taking out members of the WWE roster, and she hopes this will send everyone message, punishing them for their attacks on Big Show and Owens respectively.

Byron Saxton interviews John Cena backstage. He asks Cena about purposely trying for the count-out win in his KOTR match on Raw against Roman Reigns, noting that Cena doesn’t usually win like that. Byron says that there have been rumors going around that this is a sign that Cena is getting desperate to prove that he can still win in high-pressure situations, and asks Cena if he is doubting his ability to win King of the Ring. Cena responds by ducking the question, putting over Roman’s toughness and saying that he thought that was the best way to beat Roman at that moment in time.

Justin Gabriel comes out to the ring, then calls out Adrian Neville, who looks surprised. Gabriel apologizes to Neville for letting him down so many times over the past few weeks. Neville tells him not to worry about it but Gabriel tells him he can’t. He says that he needs to “put things right” between them, so he has asked Steph for a match against Neville at King of the Ring. Now Neville (and the announcers) are even more confused, but Gabriel goes on to explain that he has cost Neville so many wins, he thinks he owes it to Neville to help him get a win… and the best way to ensure that he gets a win is to give him a match against “the most pathetic, useless member of the WWE roster: me.” Gabriel sulks off sadly, with Neville taking off after him, trying to tell him he isn’t pathetic. Our heel announcer, on the other hand, is very happy to bury Gabriel as being pathetic.

BO DALLAS, MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY, ROMAN REIGNS, BIG E. LANGSTON, & JEY USO (w/Jimmy Uso) vs. THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS, HEATH SLATER, & THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS (w/Sylvester Lefort & Lana)-
The announcers tell us that Mark Henry isn’t at ringside with Big E. because he is recovering from the match he just had. Barrett pins Bo to pick up the win in fourteen minutes.

Next we get the contract signing for the WWE Title match at King of the Ring. Cesaro cuts a totally generic babyface “if you can beat me, then you deserve the title” mutual respect, blah blah blah promo. Kofi, on the other hand, talks about Big Show’s injury, and how Big Show was only injured because he was protecting him from the League of Nations who were trying to assault him because of this title shot. He said he talked to Show on the phone earlier today and Show told him that he was glad to sacrifice himself to save Kofi if it means Kofi gets the chance to finally achieve the one goal that has eluded him in WWE: becoming a world champion. Kofi ends his big emotional speech saying he will win this one for Big Show.

MARK HENRY (w/Big E. Langston) vs. DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman)-
Ziggler wins clean in fifteen minutes with the Sleeper Hold. He then cuts a promo saying that this proves that he can put down anyone in the WWE. He then looks pointedly at Heyman and repeats “anyone.”



WWE Superstars: (10/23/2015)

Tonight’s featured match is Tyson Kidd vs. Seth Rollins. All of our interviews focus around Team Anger’s strategy of focusing on your anger so you can channel it into a motivational force to help you succeed. Tyson says that strategy has been working for him, while Rollins point to Ambrose’s recent matches to say that it carries a big risk of causing you to lose, and isn’t worth it. In addition to those two, we hear from all three members of Team Anger (who are obviously advocating the strategy), Dean Ambrose, who also endorses it, and Nattie, who says that she is a little uneasy about it, but admits that it does seem to have been working for Tyson.

TYSON KIDD (w/Natalya Neidhart) vs. SETH ROLLINS (w/Dean Ambrose)-
A victory for the pro-anger camp, as Tyson wins clean in thirty minutes, making Seth tap out to the Dungeon lock.

WWE King of the Ring 2015: (10/25/2015)- Los Angeles, CA

KICK-OFF SHOW:
We get a promo from Paul Heyman saying that one of his guys will win King of the Ring, leading to a tense stare-down between Brock and Ziggler.

We get a nice, fancy close-up of the World Heavyweight Title, sitting on a cushion on a podium at ringside, waiting to be awarded to the winner of the King of the Ring tournament.

We go backstage to a promo by Kofi saying he won’t let Big Show down tonight and that he will win the WWE Title. His pal Big Show (wearing a back brace or whatever you would wear for an injured back) shows up to surprise him and says that he will be in Kofi’s corner tonight.

We get a backstage promo from Sylvester Lefort, who predicts that tonight will be “a very big night for the League of Nations.”

Roman Reigns cuts a promo saying he is ready for any challenger tonight.

BATTLE ROYALE FOR A SHOT AT THE WWE INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE LATER TONIGHT-
Stevie Richards returns to WWE in this match. Also retuning is Sami Zayn, back from his injury. The Colons are in this match, as are the Dudleys. They try to avoid the Dudleys for as long as they can, while the Dudleys make an effort to find them. They eventually come together and brawl. They eliminate each other and brawl away to the back. Sami Zayn comes up with the big win in his return, last eliminating Stevie.

We cut from the panel back to ringside where some sort of commotion is going on. SHEAMUS has jumped the barricade and grabs the World Heavyweight Title belt. He starts cuts a promo, screaming that the belt is his and he is still the rightful champion. A bunch of security guys try to stop him but he beats them up. Most of the locker room clears out to restrain him. Sheamus is arrested, and the belt is put back in its proper place.

We get a bunch more promos to hype up the other matches.

MAIN SHOW:
THE WYATT FAMILY vs. TEAM ANGER & TYSON KIDD (w/Natalya Neidhart)-
Team Anger win clean in fourteen minutes when Tyson pins Bray after a chokeslam by Kane and then a springboard elbow drop.

JUSTIN GABRIEL vs. ADRIAN NEVILLE-
They wrestle for a few minutes before Rusev shows up, yelling at both men. This distracts both of them as well as the referee. While this is happening, Sylvester Lefort comes out of the crowd, grabs a steal chair and gets into the ring behind them. Gabriel turns around… and Lefort tosses him the chair, which Gabriel clobbers the unsuspecting Neville with for the DQ. Gabriel beats the crap out of Neville with the chair while Lefort tells everyone that Justin Gabriel is the newest member of the League of Nations. The League of Nations leaves, and Neville is helped off by medical personnel. Total time should be about nine minutes.

WWE INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE MATCH: Roman Reigns(c) vs. Sami Zayn-
Roman wins clean with the spear in eleven minutes to retain.

We get an interview with Zack Ryder asking him how he feels going into his big title match tonight. Ryder cuts the big babyface “I’m going to win the title” promo. Then Stevie Richards shows up and tells Zack he’ll be watching this match very closely.

WWE UNITED STATES TITLE MATCH: The Miz(c) vs. Zack Ryder-
Ryder wins clean with the Rough Ryder in fourteen minutes to capture the US Title. When Ryder gets backstage, Stevie congratulates him on his big win.

WWE WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose(c) vs. The Usos-
We get some spots where Dean’s anger gets out of control and almost causes his team to lose the titles, but he is able to keep it under control and Seth & Dean retain in eighteen minutes.

KING OF THE RING SEMI-FINAL MATCH: John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler (w/Paul Heyman)-
Dolph wins clean with the Zig-Zag in twenty-three minutes. When Renee tries to get a reaction interview with Cena, he uncharacteristically ignores her. The camera follows Cena as he grabs his bag from the locker room, throws it into his car and drives off.

KING OF THE RING SEMI-FINAL MATCH: Brock Lesnar (w/Paul Heyman) vs. Wade Barrett (w/Sylvester Lefort)-
Brock dominates for a bit, but Wade gets some shots in. At about the twelve minutes mark, Wade catches Brock with a few good strikes, then launches into the Barrett Barrage and KNOCKS BROCK LESNAR OUT. The announcers all go nuts at this HUGE upset.

WWE DIVAS TITLE MATCH: Ashley Flair(c) vs. Naomi-
Ashley wins clean in ten minutes with Bow to the Queen.

WWE TITLE MATCH: Antonio Cesaro(c) vs. Kofi Kingston (w/Big Show)-
Kofi gets several great false finishes in but Cesaro wins clean in twenty minutes.

KING OF THE RING FINALS TO CROWN A NEW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION: Wade Barrett (w/Sylvester Lefort) vs. Dolph Ziggler (w/Paul Heyman)-
The match is built around Barrett going for the Barrett Barrage (which the announcers mark out for every time as “the move that knocked out Brock Lesnar,” but Dolph manages to duck every time. Dolph eventually wins with the Zig-Zag in twenty minutes to become the new World Heavyweight Champion.

WWE.com reports that all concussion tests run on Brock Lesnar after being knocked out in last night’s upset loss to Wade Barrett have been negative, and Brock has returned home.

Adrian Neville will be out of action due to injuries suffered in last night’s attack by Justin Gabriel and the League of Nations.

The Miz has invoked his rematch clause and will attempt to regain the US Title he lost to Zack Ryder tonight on Raw.

Stevie Richards, who made a shocking return to WWE last night, has asked to team with Bo Dallas tonight. That wish has been granted, but this first-time team will have their work cut out of them as they face off against the WWE World Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose in non-title action.

WWE General Manager Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley is also in the process of finalizing a blockbuster main event, which will be announced at the beginning of tonight's Raw.



Raw: (10/26/2015)- San Diego, CA

We get highlights of the results from last night, as well as a promise that we will hear from new World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler just before tonight’s main event, which features the new World Heavyweight Champion teaming up with Kalisto to face WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro and the man Cesaro successfully defended his title against last night: Kofi Kingston.

BRIAN KENDRICK, HEATH SLATER, & THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS vs. TEAM ANGER (Kane, Jack Swagger, R-Truth, & Tyson Kidd) (w/Natalya Neidhart)-
Team Anger dominates for most of the thirteen minutes this match goes, but we lay things out so that Kendrick gets the chance to receive a hot tag and run wild for a bit. Heath Slater hits his jumping Russian Leg Sweep or whatever similar move he has been using as a finisher on Tyson Kidd but Tyson kicks out. Tyson then proceeds to make his own comeback and he pins Kendrick after a springboard elbow drop.
The announcers put over Team Anger’s victory against this makeshift team, and tell us that we will see the men Team Anger defeated in an eight-man tag last night, The Wyatt Family, in an eight-man tag of their own later tonight against the similarly makeshift team Sami Zayn, Mark Henry, Big E. Langston, & Michael McGillicutty.

Bo Dallas cuts a backstage promo talking about how excited he is to be teaming with former ECW World Tag Team Champion Stevie Richards tonight. He hopes that he can learn a lot from Stevie… and maybe he and Stevie will beat Ambrose & Rollins tonight to earn a title shot and then become WWE World Tag Team Champions together!

The Dudleys come out and cut a promo calling out the Colons. When the Colons don’t come out, the Dudleys say they finally thought the Colons found their balls last night but apparently they haven’t. Instead of the Colons the Usos come out. They say that now that they have had their shot at regaining the tag titles, they, too, are ready to take revenge on the Colons. The Colons still don’t come out, and the segment ends rather awkwardly as we go to commercial.

When we return from commercial, the League of Nations comes out to the ring. Lefort puts over Wade Barrett as “the man who knocked out Brock Lesnar.” He then gloats about the plan they all pulled off at King of the Ring to “teach Adrian Neville a lesson,” before handing the mic off to Justin Gabriel so Justin can explain his heel turn.
Justin refers us back to last month’s Raw in Buffalo when Sylvester Lefort came to him and Neville and offered to manage them, but Neville quickly shot him down. Then, over the next several weeks, Airstrike kept losing, but almost never cleanly. First he got pinned when PTP used the ropes for illegal leverage. Then he had a match against David Otunga won but Naomi put Otunga’s feet on the ropes, and then later Naomi distracted him to help Otunga defeat him. Then Rosa Mendes spent an entire match distracting the referee so he couldn’t see Airstrike’s tags, and then she passed one of the Colons a pair of brass knuckles which he used to knock Neville out cold with. And the common thread with all of these losses was that they showed Justin the benefit of having a manager. A manager would have been able to point out PTP’s illegal leverage to the referee, or distract opponents like Naomi did, or distract the referee and hide a foreign object until the time was right to use it like Rosa did.
So when he learned that he and Neville had been booked against the League of Nations on Raw two weeks ago, he went to Sylvester Lefort and asked if it would be possible for him to join the League of Nations even if Neville didn’t want to. So they did some negotiating and Justin proved himself with a few “showings of good faith” to prove his dedication to the League, and then he got Steph to agree to book him against Neville at King of the Ring and the trap was set. At King of the Ring he did exactly what he had told Neville and the rest of the world he was going to do: he “put things right between them.” Not so that Neville could get a win against him, but so that he could pay Neville back for all of the wins Neville cost him by not taking Sylvester Lefort up on his offer last month. Now that Neville is gone, he is going to take his rightful place as the top high-flyer in the WWE… and with Sylvester Lefort as his manager, he will fly higher than any high-flyer- from RVD to Jeff Hardy to Rey Mysterio- has ever gone before!

Kofi Kingston cuts a backstage promo, in which he says he is disappointed that he failed to win the WWE Title last night, but Cesaro was the better man and he is honored to team with the WWE Champion tonight. He also tells us how much it meant to him that his friend Big Show fought though the pain to be in his corner last night. He informs us that Show isn’t here tonight because he is with the therapist rehabbing his injury, but the prognosis is that he will return to action sooner than expected!

BRIE BELLA vs. NAOMI (w/the Brain Trust)-
We get a spot where Naomi hits her finisher and the ref counts three, but just as his hand hits the mat he sees Brie’s foot on the ropes and waves it off. Brie goes on to win clean in ten minutes. After the match, Brain Trust are furious. They yell that this match was “stolen” from them, just like an Intercontinental Title shot was “stolen” from them when Steph wouldn’t let them participate in the battle royale on the King of the Ring pre-show. They say that if Roman had any balls he would come out and defend the title against one of them right now, but they warn him that he won’t be able to retain the title tonight as easily as he was able to do so against that loser Sami Zayn last night.
Roman does indeed come out and says he has no problem putting the belt on the line against anyone. Cole tells us that Steph has made this match official… but Brain Trust first demand a different referee. After that problem has been solved, we get a…

WWE INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE MATCH: Roman Reigns(c) vs. Damien Sandow (w/the Brain Trust)-
They go for about ten minutes before Otunga interferes to almost give Sandow the win, but Sami Zayn runs out and attacks Sandow, causing a DQ. We then get a short pull-apart as Cole reminds us that Brain Trust have put both Zayn and his best friend Kevin Owens on the shelf recently.

We go backstage to a promo by Ashley Flair. She says that she has a great idea for a tournament involving everyone woman in the division to determine who is worthy to be her next contender that she pitched to Steph, and she is going to come out to the ring to tell the WWE Universe because she thinks they will love her idea and help convince Steph to go with it.
After a commercial break, Ashley comes out but is jumped by Paige on the ramp. Security rushes in to break it up. Paige demands to speak to Steph. Steph comes out and tells security to take Ashley to the back. She orders them to keep Paige restrained, but also to hold a microphone for her.
Paige complains that Ashley’s idea for a tournament involving the whole division is just another way to duck her because everyone- including Ashley- knows that Paige can beat her. Steph agrees with Paige’s analysis of the situation and says she wasn’t going to implement Ashley’s idea… but she is sick and tired of premeditated assaults, and so she is punishing Paige by making her earn a title shot in a tournament instead of being moved right into a #1 contendership match like she deserves.

We get a video promo from John Cena announcing that he is going to take some time off from WWE to “reevaluate” things. He says he isn’t sure when he will be back, but promises that he will return.

STEVIE RICHARDS & BO DALLAS vs. SETH ROLLINS & DEAN AMBROSE-
Rollins & Ambrose win clean in thirteen minutes when Ambrose pins Bo. After the match Renee gets a reaction interview with Stevie and Bo. Stevie puts Bo over big for giving it 100% tonight and says that if he keeps working at it, Bo will finally be able to get some big wins and move up the card. Bo is absolutely glowing after receiving this praise, and gives Stevie a big thank you.

Miz cuts a backstage promo saying that Ryder’s win last night was a fluke and that he will regain the US Title tonight.

Antonio Cesaro cuts a backstage promo building up the Champion vs. Champion aspect of tonight’s main event.

WWE UNITED STATES TITLE MATCH: Zack Ryder(c) vs. The Miz-
Ryder wins clean in fifteen minutes with the Rough Ryder to retain the title.

Kalisto cuts a backstage promo talking about what a big opportunity it is for him to be in this main event, teaming with the World Heavyweight Champion and opposing the WWE Champion. He floats the idea that he could pin Cesaro and earn himself a WWE Title match.

THE WYATT FAMILY vs. MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY, MARK HENRY, BIG E. LANGSTON, & SAMI ZAYN-
The babyfaces win clean in twenty minutes, taking some time to isolate and pick apart each Wyatt, almost doing a reversal of the usual “babyface in peril” story. Mark Henry pins Erick Rowan following a Big Ending by Big E and then a running splash from Mark.

Dolph Ziggler and Paul Heyman come out and cut their big, victorious promo. Dolph brags about everyone he beat to win King of the Ring and become the new World Heavyweight Champion. In particular he brags that he “beat the guy that Brock Lesnar couldn’t beat,” claiming to be “the man who pinned the man who knocked out Brock Lesnar.” He also brags about his win over Cena, saying that “’Mr. Never Give Up’ gave up because he couldn’t beat me!”
He finishes by hyping up the main event saying, “as long as Kalisto can hold up his end of the deal, we’re going to beat Cesaro and Kofi 1-2-3.”

ANTONIO CESARO & KOFI KINGSTON vs. KALISTO & DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman)-
We go for about twenty minutes before Kofi and Kalisto do a double-down and then the double hot tag spot, tagging the two world champions in. Dolph and Cesaro face off, but then CODY RHODES returns from injury, attacking Dolph for the DQ. He grabs a chair and tries to hit Dolph with it, but Cesaro confronts him for costing him the match, so Cody hits Cesaro instead. Cody goes after Dolph, but Dolph and Heyman have already escaped, so Cody starts wailing on Cesaro with the chair until security, Kofi, and Kalisto can get him off.

WWE.com announces that Cesaro was injured in Cody’s attack and will be out of action for about a week.
WWE.com also announces that both Sylvester Lefort and Justin Gabriel have been placed on “administrative leave” pending an investigation into their comments on Raw.

Main Event: (10/27/2015)
SAMI ZAYN vs. DAVID OTUNGA (w/Brain Trust)-
Brain Trust cause a DQ in about six minutes and beat Sami down but Roman Reigns comes out to make the save.

RYBACK vs. HEATH SLATER-
Ryback comes out without the rest of the Wyatt Family. He dominates Heath for a few minutes, at which point the rest of the Wyatts show up. Ryback doesn’t look too pleased with this, and their on-coming presence distracts him for enough time for Slater to recover and hit his Jumping Russian Leg Sweep/Sweetness/whatever. Heath goes for the cover and Ryback just barely manages to kick out. Ryback then regains control of the match and wins with the Shell Shock. He then heads to the back, barely acknowledging his Wyatt Family brothers.

MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY & KALISTO vs. THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes)-
They go for about a minute or two before both the Dudleys and The Usos run out, and chase the Colons away, resulting in a count-out win for the makeshift team of McGillicutty & Kalisto.

THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS vs. THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS (w/Lana)-
The announcers use this match to both push Barrett as “the man who knocked out Brock Lesnar” and to tell those who don’t read the website about Lefort and Gabriel being put on “administrative leave” pending an investigation into their statements on Raw (specifically the implication that Gabriel may have thrown a match as a favor to Lefort). The League of Nations win clean in fifteen minutes when Barrett knocks Darren Young out with the Barrett Barrage, “the move that knocked out Brock Lesnar.”




WWE.com announces that this week’s featured match on Superstars will be Brain Trust vs. the makeshift pairing of Sami Zayn and Roman Reigns. While Sami and Roman have never teamed before, they will get the opportunity to hone their game before the big match, as they have been signed to take on the Prime Time Players tonight on Smackdown.
Also on tap for Smackdown is The Usos vs. Mark Henry & Big E. Langston, Tyson Kidd vs. Kofi Kingston, Dean Ambrose vs. Heath Slater, Michael McGillicutty vs. Ryback, and in your main event, Seth Rollins vs. Kalisto. All of this, plus Cody Rhodes will address the WWE Universe after his controversial return on Raw.



Smackdown: (10/29/2015)- Phoenix, AZ

Smackdown opens with a big celebration for Zack Ryder for having won the US Title and successfully retained it in Miz’s contractually obligated rematch. Steph is out, and tells everyone that this was really all Stevie Richards’ idea. Stevie cuts a promo putting Ryder over. Santino makes his return to WWE for this. Bo Dallas comes out and says that he sees Ryder as an inspiration.
Ryder then gets to speak. He thanks everyone for doing this for him and thanks the fans for never giving up on him. As he starts to talk about what the title means to him, he is interrupted by The Miz. Miz once again claims that the only reason that he lost to Ryder, both at the PPV and in his rematch on Raw, is because he is STILL injured from his Falls Count Anywhere match against Tyson Kidd at the 10/3 WWE Network live special from MSG (which, he makes sure to note, Nattie also interfered in, so it took TWO people to put him out).
Ryder says he is sick of Miz’s BS excuses, so he offers The Miz a deal: Miz can take as long as he wants to recover, and whenever he feels he is ready, he can have one more shot at the title. Miz accepts this offer, provided he is sent the necessary paperwork to make sure it is a legally binding contract- because, as Miz insists, if Ryder is willing to lie by saying that he was at full health for their matches, then surely he is willing to lie to screw Miz out of a title shot- (Cole scuffs at this comment) and Steph gives it her blessing to make it official.

KOFI KINGSTON vs. TYSON KIDD (w/Natalya Neidhart & Team Anger)-
Before the match, Kane cuts a promo encouraging Kofi to adopt their strategy and turn his anger at the League of Nations over Big Show’s injury into fuel to help motivate himself to win. Kofi responds by telling Kane that his stance hasn’t changed, so he will tell him the same thing he said eight months ago: what they are doing is not healthy and will lead anyone who does so down a very dark path.
Tyson wins clean in fifteen minutes. After the match, Kane cuts a promo attributing Tyson’s victory to Team Anger’s motivational philosophy.

We get a backstage promo from The Colons saying that the Dudleys and The Usos can call them cowards all they like, but the truth is they’re not cowards; they’re smart. Only an idiot would run into a fight in which they would be outnumbered, which is exactly what they would have been doing if they had tried to fight both the Dudleys and The Usos on Raw or Main Event.

Steph and Ashley Flair come out to the ring for the official announcement of the women’s #1 contendership tournament. It is an eight-woman single-elimination tournament, with the winner getting a shot at Ashley’s Divas Title at Survivor Series. The four first-round matches will be: Nattie vs. Paige, Naomi vs. Cameron, Alicia Fox vs. Brie Bella, and Tamina Snuka vs. Emma.
Ashley cuts a promo burying the women in the tournament and saying that she’ll easily beat the winner. Steph tells her that she might regret those words come Survivor Series, because such statement are sure to do nothing other than fire her challenger up.

RYBACK vs. MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY-
Like on Main Event, the other Wyatts do not come out with Ryback, but rather they show up a few minutes into his match. Also like on Main Event, Ryback is doing very well until they show up, at which point he is distracted by their on-coming presence, and doesn’t seem happy that they are out here. Also like on Main Event, this distraction allows his opponent to recover enough to nail Ryback with his finisher. Unlike on Main Event, however, Ryback is not able to kick out in time this time. He kicks out at 3.1, but at that matters just as much as it would have mattered if he had kicked out at 27.1. McGillicutty is the winner. He speeds off, away from the stunned Wyatts.
Ryback gets upset, but Bray grabs a mic and starts to talk about the importance of unity. He cites their loss on Raw, where their opponents were able to prevent them from being able to fight as a unified force, and thus they were defeated. Shockingly, Ryback grabs a mic and begins to argue with Bray. He notes that, lately, he has done a lot better when the other members of the Wyatt Family haven’t tried to “help” him than when they have, citing his string of big losses recently where the other Wyatts have somehow inadvertently cost him a match, either by causing a DQ or distracting the referee when he has a pin, or whatever other means. Bray notes that Ryback also his big #1 contendership match on Smackdown two weeks ago… and the Wyatts were barred from ringside for that match- at Ryback’s own request. Ryback says that he is grateful to Bray for everything he has taught him and still wants to be a member of the family and one of Bray’s disciples… but he just doesn’t want them to be at ringside for his matches anymore.
Ryback then walks off. Bray is stunned for a few moments, but then returns to addressing his remaining disciples, talking about the importance of unity, and saying that “brother Ryback will help teach this lesson to himself and to everyone.”

THE USOS vs. MARK HENRY & BIG E. LANGSTON-
The Usos win clean in ten minutes after a double superkick and a double slash on Big E. After the match, they call out The Colons, saying that if The Colons want it to be two-on-two they have no problem with that. The Dudley Boyz come out and say that The Usos have already wrestled tonight while The Colons have not, so they should head to the back and let the Dudleys deal with them. The Usos thank the Dudleys for their concern, but assure them that they will be fine, so Bubba and Devon should just go to the back to The Colons will come out here and face The Usos like men. The Dudleys get upset at this and say that they should be the ones to get their hands on The Colons first. Some shoving starts, and the security rushes out to break it up before it escalates.

Paige cuts a promo saying that she has resigned herself to her punishment of having to go through the tournament in order to get a Divas Title shot. She says she will win the tournament and beat Ashley Flair at Survivor Series to become the WWE Divas Champion.

TAMINA SNUKA (w/Summer Rae) vs. A JOBBER-
Tamina squashes the jobber. The announcers wonder if Ashley is now regretting her earlier bravado.


Cody Rhodes cuts a promo explaining his actions during Raw’s main event. He says he has been sitting on the sidelines with a concussion for months while Sheamus loses “my World Heavyweight Title and then Daniel Bryan gets taken out so there is this big tournament to crown a new champion… and I still have to sit on the sidelines and watch because of this damn concussion… and the day I finally get cleared is day of the final match of the tournament, so I go to Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley and tell her that I want to be added into the tournament finals as I rightly deserve because of my contractually obligated rematch which I have yet to receive due to my injury, but she told me to wait… well I’m not waiting anymore! Dolph Ziggler, I’m coming for MY title!”

THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS vs. ROMAN REIGNS & SAMI ZAYN-
Brain Trust come out to do commentary. They wind up distracting Zayn, allowing Titus to hit him with Clash of the Titus for the pin in eight minutes.

Dolph Ziggler cuts a backstage promo saying that Cody can run his mouth as much as he wants, but he is never taking the World Heavyweight Title back.

HEATH SLATER vs. DEAN AMBROSE (w/Seth Rollins)-
Dean wins clean in five minutes with Dirty Deeds. He also kicks out of Slater’s finisher.

Wade Barrett and Lana both cut promos professing Sylvester Lefort and Justin Gabriel’s innocence, claiming that there was no agreement for Gabriel to throw any matches. Rusev cuts a promo where he says the same thing in Bulgarian.

KALISTO vs. SETH ROLLINS (w/Dean Ambrose)-
Seth wins clean in seventeen minutes.



Superstars: (10/30/2015)
Tonight’s featured match is the Brain Trust vs. Roman Reigns & Sami Zayn. The interviews focus on Roman’s pride as a champion and wanting to meet Brain Trust’s challenge to the legitimacy of his title reign, Brain Trust bragging about how smart they are, and Zayn talking about his and Owens’ feud with Brain Trust and his desire to avenge Kevin Owens.

SAMI ZAYN & ROMAN REIGNS vs. BRAIN TRUST (w/Naomi)-
The match goes about twenty minutes. The finish comes when Otunga tries to hit Roman with his own title belt (Naomi is distracting the referee), but Zayn pulls the belt away from him and Roman nails him with a spear for the win.

At Sunday’s house show it is announced that Cody Rhodes will get his rematch for the World Heavyweight Title this Monday night on Raw! This information goes up on the website on Monday morning.
Also advertised for Raw is the first match in the women’s #1 contendership tournament featuring Paige taking on Natalya, as well as the official results of the investigation into the allegations of collusion between Sylvester Lefort and Justin Gabriel.
Later on Monday, it is announced that WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro will be returning to Raw after being injured by Cody last week.

Right before Monday’s Raw, the Colons cut a promo saying that they will prove that they’re not cowards by making a big, newsworthy challenge live tonight on Raw.


Raw: (11/2/2015)- Denver, CO
SIX-PACK CHALLENGE: Kalisto vs. Michael McGillicutty vs. Bo Dallas vs. David Otunga (w/Brain Trust) vs. Seth Rollins (w/Dean Ambrose) vs. Kane (w/Team Anger)-
Kane wins clean in fifteen minutes, pinning Bo. Throughout the match, the announcers plug that WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro will be speaking next.

Cesaro cuts a promo saying that Cody Rhodes might have his sights set on the World Heavyweight Title, but after last week’s attack, the WWE Champion has his sights set on Cody.

The Colons come out to the ring and cut a promo on the Dudleys and The Usos. They say they will prove that they’re not cowards by calling out… Sami Zayn. This results in…

SAMI ZAYN vs. PRIMO COLON (w/Rosa Mendes & Epico Colon)-
The match goes for about five minutes before Rosa distracts the ref while Epico grabs a chair and uses it to take out Sami’s knee from behind. Primo slaps on a knee-bar, to which Zayn taps, but Primo doesn’t release the hold until the Dudleys and Usos run out to chase the Colons off. Zayn has to be helped to the back by medical personnel.

KOFI KINGSTON vs. RYBACK-
The Wyatt Family comes out to ringside early in the match but Ryback orders them to go to the back. After considering for a few moments, Bray obliges. Ryback goes on to win clean in fifteen minutes. Michael Cole points out that Ryback seems to be doing just fine without the other members of the Wyatt Family trying to help him.

Ashley Flair cuts a backstage promo hyping up the tournament to determine the #1 contender for her WWE Divas Title, putting herself over for coming up with the idea.

BIG E. LANGSTON (w/Mark Henry) vs. TYSON KIDD (w/Team Anger & Natalya Neidhart)-
Tyson wins clean in fourteen minutes.

The Prime Time Players come out and cut a promo. They say that as long as people are coming out here and making challenges tonight, they are going to make one of their own. They want to face those goofy losers Zack Ryder and Santino Marella. Ryder and Santino come out to answer the challenge and cut a promo on PTP, so we get…

THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS vs. CO-BRO-
We work around Santino’s limitations by having PTP work over his arm with submissions, and Titus eventually makes him tap at around the eight minute mark.

Steph announces that the investigation into Sylvester Lefort and Justin Gabriel has been completed, and despite their comments, WWE cannot prove that Lefort asked Gabriel to throw matches (specifically 10/12 in Chicago and 10/19 in Dallas), so they will be reinstated… but, in accordance with WWE’s crackdown on pre-meditated assaults- and especially those that cause injury- Justin Gabriel will remain suspended, as his comments on last week’s Raw have proved that his assault on Adrian Neville with a steel chair at King of the Ring was premeditated.

EMMA, ALICIA FOX & CAMERON vs. BRIE BELLA, TAMINA SNUKA, & NAOMI (w/Summer Rae & the Brain Trust)-
Fox pins Naomi via roll-up in eleven minutes.

STEVIE RICHARDS & HEATH SLATER vs. TEAM ANGER (Jack Swagger & R-Truth) (w/Kane & Tyson Kidd)-
Team Anger gets the heat on Slater. He makes a hot tag to Stevie for the comeback. We go into our false finishes, including both Truth and Swagger kicking out of Slater’s finish. Truth pins Slater after hitting him with the Hat Rack Crack.
Byron Saxton tries to get a reaction interview with Heath and Stevie. Stevie talks about how proud he is of Heath for keeping it serious, but Heath insists that the only reason they lost is because his signature move isn’t doing the job anymore, and claims that he will come up with the most devastating finishing move ever.

The League of Nations cut a backstage promo saying that they knew Lefort would be found innocent of all charges against him, and when he returns, the League of Nations will once again dominate the WWE, etc. etc.

The Brain Trust come out to the ring and Sandow says that he deserves another shot at the IC Title because Sami Zayn ruined his last one by saving Roman via DQ. If says that if Roman has any integrity, he’d come out here and put the belt on the line right now, when his little buddy Sami Zayn isn’t around to save him. Roman comes out and is willing to do so, but Steph instead books the match for Thursday’s Smackdown.

Cody Rhodes comes out and cuts a promo saying that he is tired of waiting, and he wants his shot at the World Heavyweight Title right now. The announcers speculate that Cody did this to throw off Dolph, who might not have finished his pre-match strategy session with Heyman (and definitely not to avoid doing a DQ in what should obviously be a main event match). Steph comes out and says okay, so after a commercial break we get the…
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH: Dolph Ziggler(c) (w/Paul Heyman) vs. Cody Rhodes-
We go for about twelve minutes until Cody seems to be in control, but then Cesaro runs out and attacks him, causing a DQ. Security run out to break them up. After a commercial break, Steph announces that a rematch has been signed for tomorrow’s episode of WWE Main Event, and if Cesaro interferes, he will be stripped of his WWE Title.
She also announces a new main event for tonight’s show: a six man tag team match that will have WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro team up for the first time ever with the Dudley Boyz to face the Wyatt Family!

WOMEN’S #1 CONTENDERSHIP TOURNAMENT QUARTERFINAL MATCH: Paige vs. Natalya Neidhart (w/Tyson Kidd)-
Paige beats Nattie clean via Stretch Muffler in twenty minutes. After the match, Renee tries to get a reaction interview with Nattie, asking her about her loss, but Nattie doesn’t want to talk. Renee tries to press the issue, but Tyson angrily snaps at her and she backs off.

The Brain Trust cut a backstage promo offering to team with The Colons to take on The Usos and Dudleys in this week’s featured match on Superstars. They say they are doing so “in the interests of fairness,” but Michael Cole suspects that they might have cut some sort of deal with The Colons, and that The Colons’ tactics that resulted in Sami Zayn’s knee injury might have been premeditated. JBL accuses him of being a conspiracy theorist.

ANTONIO CESARO & THE DUDLEY BOYZ vs. THE WYATT FAMILY (Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, & Erick Rowan)-
Babyfaces win clean in fifteen minutes after a 3-D on Rowan. The babyfaces leave, while Bray grabs a mic and starts to angrily berate his soldiers. In the middle of Bray’s speech, THE LIGHTS IN THE ARENA GO OUT…
And when they come back on, standing there on the ramp… is STING! And he’s pointing his signature black baseball bat right at Bray Wyatt. “I’ve had my eye on you for a long time, Bray Wyatt,” Sting shouts. And with the image of Sting pointing his bat at Bray Wyatt, Raw goes off the air.

ROAD TO SURVIVOR SERIES 2015

STING VS. THE WYATT FAMILY:
The prospect of facing The Icon forces Bray to proactively increase his defenses. On the 11/3 Main Event, he and his family interfere to help Ryback beat Dean Ambrose. On the 11/5 Smackdown, when Ambrose demands to know why they poked their nose in his business, Bray says that it was nothing personal: they were only fulfilling their responsibilities to “Brother Ryback.” They don’t want a war with Seth & Dean… although they’ll be happy to oblige if Seth and Dean would like. This results in Bray vs. Ambrose being booked for Raw.
On Raw, Byron Saxton is set to interview Ryback to ask him what Bray meant by their “responsibility” to him, and if is he still a part of the Wyatt Family. Ryback starts off by saying that he is still a part of the Wyatt Family. He starts to say that, given recent events, he would prefer it if they would stay in the back for his matches, but he still considers himself part of the group. He still travels with them and follows Bray’s teachings, etc. etc.
An angry Ambrose walks up and gets in Ryback’s face, leading to a shouting match and security stepping in to separate.
During the Bray vs. Ambrose match, Dean gets a visual pinfall but the ref is distracted by the other Wyatts and can’t make the count. We soon get a ref bump and a series of interferences that ends when Ryback- who had not been at ringside with the other Wyatts- comes out and hits Dean with Shell Shock, which allows Bray to pick up the win. Now that both Bray and Ryback have pinned Dean, a tag title match is signed for that week’s Superstars.
Also on this Raw, we get a pre-taped sit-down interview with Michael Cole interviewing Sting. Sting points out how following Bray Wyatt hasn’t really done anyone any good. Everything Dean Ambrose accomplished, (like winning the US Title) he accomplished on his own. He won championships before he started to follow Bray Wyatt and he has won them after he left the Wyatt Family. Big Show has been much happier since he decided not to follow Bray Wyatt last July, while Bo Dallas certainly would have been better off if he had never followed Bray, because Bray did nothing but use him, never once caring about Bo’s well-being… and that’s how Bray is with everyone. Ryback was successful before Bray, and over the past month, Bray’s presence has hurt Ryback more than it has helped him. Sting says he is here to expose Bray Wyatt for the fraud that he is.
Cole points out that last week Sting said that he has had his eye on Bray Wyatt “for a long time.” Cole asks Sting why it is only now that he has chosen to show up and confront Bray. Sting replies by saying that, just like how he wanted WCW to prove to him that they could fight the nWo for themselves before he started to help him, he wants people to prove that they can think beyond what Bray tells them before he shows up to help them, because if the person he is trying convince is so blinded by Bray’s control, then his words will fall on deaf ears and have no effect.
The next day, it is announced that at Survivor Series, it will be Sting vs. Bray Wyatt.
Bray responds on Smackdown with a promo about the importance of the Wyatt Family being “unified” once again. On Superstars, Harper and Rowan try to interfere to help the Wyatts, but Sting shows up to ward them off with his bat. After one or two close calls, Ambrose eventually hits Bray with Dirty Deeds and pins him to retain the titles.

Our go-home angle takes place on the 11/16 Raw, with an in-ring confrontation which sees Sting take out both Harper and Rowan with his bat. As he bears down on Bray he sees Ryback moving to help, and pointedly asks Ryback if he really wants to sacrifice himself for Bray.

THE TAG TITLES AND THE WORLD TITLES:
The 11/3 Main Event features Cody Rhodes challenging Dolph Ziggler for the World Heavyweight Title with Cesaro being stripped of his WWE Title if he interferes. At a critical point during the match, Cesaro’s music plays, which distracts Cody, allowing Dolph to roll him up for the pin.
Smacdown features Dolph and Cody on opposite sides of a tag team match and once again Cesaro’s music plays, but Cody doesn’t let it distract him this time. Unfortunately for him, this time it really is Cesaro coming out, and he attacks Cody for the DQ. This leads to tensions between Cesaro and Dolph, which, in turn, leads to a Champion vs. Champion singles match on Raw, which, of course, Cody interferes in, attacking both guys for the double DQ.
On Smackdown we get a segment where both champions are willing to put their title on the line just for the chance to get their hands on Cody. Steph comes out and tells Cody she will let him pick who he wants to challenge at Survivor Series. Cody picks Cesaro, with the reasoning being that Dolph has the benefit of having Paul Heyman with him (it is implied that Heyman paid off a sound-guy to play Cesaro’s music if it ever looked like Cody was in trouble during the title match on Main Event).

Meanwhile, Team Anger has continued to preach their message and be quite successful, with both Tyson Kidd and the pairing of Swagger & Truth picking up big wins. Dean Ambrose also seems to like what they have to say, but unlike for the others, Ambrose often lets his anger get the best of him during matches, sometimes causing himself to get DQed, or other times being out of position or getting distracted and almost costing him and Rollins match. Such an occurrence happens during their tag title defense against the Wyatts, with Dean only barely being able to get back in time to make the save. Seth tells Team Anger he wants them to leave Dean alone, which leads to tensions both between Seth and Team Anger and between Seth and Dean. Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose vs. Jack Swagger & R-Truth for the WWE World Tag Team Titles is signed for Survivor Series, with Seth trying to tell Dean that keeping calm is the best path to victory, while Team Anger try to encourage Dean to follow their path. Both Rollins and the announcers wonder why Team Anger would give advice to someone who will be defending the titles against them, but they say the fans are more likely to believe them if a babyface like Dean is preaching their message, so even if they don’t win the titles, they will be happy with Dean being champion so long as he believes in their message.
Tyson Kidd has also bought into Team Anger’s message, and is even more successful at applying it than Dean. Someone who hasn’t bought into that message, though, is his wife. After Nattie loses in the first round of the women’s #1 contendership tournament, Tyson suggests that she give it a shot, but she is unwilling.
We get about a week’s worth of Nattie losing while Tyson wins a lot, and in backstage segments, Tyson always seems angrier and perhaps more short-tempered- even with Nattie. The wins he has accumulated while following Team Anger’s philosophy- and always with Kane at ringside- have earned Tyson the shot at the World Heavyweight Title at Survivor Series. On the go-home Raw we get a big segment where Nattie and Tyson are wrestling some sort of mixed tag and Nattie loses and Tyson starts to yell at her, saying that they wouldn’t have lost if she would embrace Team Anger’s philosophy the way he has. Nattie shouts back that she doesn’t want to embrace their philosophy because, while it has definitely helped Tyson win, it has also made him into “a huge asshole!”
Tyson storms to the back after this fight, while Nattie stands there, in the ring, on the verge of tears. Then THE MIZ comes out (he had made a return that night to officially drop off contract for his any-time-he-wants-it US Title shot) grabs a mic, and really rubs it in Nattie’s face, telling her that it looks like, in the end, she made the wrong choice by turning Miz down to stay with that loser Tyson Kidd… “but you can fix mistake right now if you want to, baby.”
At this point Tyson Kidd runs out from the back and savagely beats the living sh*t out of The Miz. Security takes a while to finally pull him off, while Nattie stands there, crying, and slightly afraid of the vicious violence her husband is now capable of (the announcers will help this along by explaining to us that, while Miz was certainly being a giant asshole, Tyson has surely overreacted here).
We get news on Tuesday morning that Nattie has flown home to Calgary. Meanwhile, Tyson Kidd shows up on Main Event to wrestle with his Team Anger cohorts in an eight-man tag. The announcers say that he doesn’t seem to even notice that Nattie isn’t at ringside, although they do say that he seems angrier than they’ve ever seen him. A similar thing happens on Smackdown, and when Byron tries to ask him about the status of his relationship with Nattie, Tyson punches him in the stomach (WWE.com announces that Tyson is fined for this action).

TRADITIONAL SURVIVOR SERIES TAG TEAM ELIMINTION MATCH #1:
Roman Reigns successfully defends the Intercontinental Title against Damien Sandow on the 11/5 Smackdown. Sylvester Lefort returns from his suspension by picking up where he left off and claiming that Roman’s willingness to defend the title against Sandow but not offering Rusev a shot is evidence of cowardice. Big Show makes his return from injury and is also eager to get his hands on Rusev and the League of Nations. Adrian Neville also returns from injury looking for revenge on the League. He asks Steph to unsuspend Justin Gabriel for Gabriel’s premeditated attack on him at King of the Ring so that he can get his revenge. Steph wins up booking our first traditional Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination Match: Adrian Neville, Big Show, Kofi Kingston, & Roman Reigns vs. The League of Nations team consisting of Wade Barrett, Rusev, Justin Gabriel… and Sylvester Lefort himself is forced to step into the ring.

WOMEN’S DIVISION & THE TAG TEAM UNDERCARD
The 11/6 Superstars features the eight-man tag pitting The Usos and the Dudley Boyz against The Colons and the Brain Trust. The interviews on the babyface side are about how much both teams want revenge on the Colons and whether or not this will cause them to get in each other’s way. The interviews on the heel side are basically the Colons saying that they are not cowards: they just want a fair fight, and now that the Brain Trust have generously decided to help them, they are perfectly happy to face the Dudleys and Usos. I’d have both teams really lay it on talking about how the Brain Trust decided to team with the Colons “out of the goodness of their hearts” “and not for any other reason” as a way to heavily imply that some sort of backroom deal was made that Brain Trust offered to team with the Colons in exchange for taking out Sami Zayn on Raw, but without having to come out and say it because doing that would mean that Steph should suspend the Colons for a premeditated attack on Zayn.
The match itself revolves around the Dudleys and Usos stepping on each other’s toes in their efforts to get at the Colons, allowing the heels to win. From here, we build it into a proper three-way feud leading to the Dudley Boyz vs. the Colons vs. The Usos in a three-way match at Survivor Series.

The women’s #1 contendership tournament progresses like so:
The first round closes out with Alicia Fox def. Brie clean (Main Event 11/3), Tamina def. Emma clean (Smackdown 11/5) and Naomi def. Cameron via cheating aided by the Brain Trust (Raw 11/9). The second round sees Paige beat Tamina clean (Main Event 11/10) and Naomi beat Fox via cheating (Smackdown 11/12). The finals of the tournament take place on the go-home Raw, and feature Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn making their return from injury to chase Sandow and Otunga off, ensuring a one-on-one match which Paige wins cleanly to win the tournament and earn a shot at the Divas Title. Brain Trust vs. Owens & Zayn in an elimination match is also booked for Survivor Series, with the idea being that for the past month Brain Trust have put Owens and Zayn in situation where the other one was injured and wasn’t able to help them, so an elimination match will force one team to replicate that disadvantaged situation.

TRADITIONAL SURVIVOR SERIES TAG TEAM ELIMINTION MATCH #2
Titus O’Neil uses his victory over Co-Bro to goad Ryder into giving him a US Title shot on the 11/9 Raw, which Ryder wins. In that match we once again push how much the title means to Ryder because of his vow to return to NYC as a champion.
The reason Stevie Richards has returned to WWE to hang out with jobbers is basically because he’s trying to teach the undercard guys to be more serious and thus increase their chances of winning, just like he was able to do when he went from Raven’s flunky to a successful part of WWF’s Hardcore Division and a successful manager of RTC. He lauds Ryder as an example of this. Bo and Santino also hang around.
Heath Slater hangs around with them, too, but he doesn’t seem to be listening to Stevie. Instead he takes every opportunity to talk about how he has replaced his old, ineffectual finishing maneuver, with a “new, devastating maneuver: the DevaSlater!” He promises to debut it in just about every match, but never seems to get the chance. He hits a new move a big point in every match and the announcers wonder if that move was the DevaSlater, but the move always gets kicked out of, and after each match Heath claims he still hasn’t had the chance to hit the DevaSlater yet. Stevie is unhappy with Heath being goofy, but is very patient with him.
Stevie also tries to get Michael McGillicutty to join them, but he refuses, claiming that he isn’t a “loser” like Ryder, Bo, Santino, and Slater. Stevie goes to Steph and gets a match booked for Survivor Series, with McGillicutty quickly volunteering to be on the opposing team. The match is: Stevie Richards, Zack Ryder, Santino Marella, Bo Dallas, & Heath Slater vs. Michael McGillicutty, Mark Henry, Big E. Langston, & the Prime Time Players in a traditional Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination Match.

WWE Survivor Series 2015: (11/22/2015)- Atlanta, GA

KICK-OFF SHOW:
We get a bunch of promos to build up the matches. In Ryder, Stevie, Santino, Bo, and Slater’s promo, Stevie puts them all over for working very hard. Slater interrupts him to insist that his devastating new finishing maneuver, the DevaSlater will win the match for them.

ELIMINATION MATCH: Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn vs. The Brain Trust (w/Naomi)-
Zayn is the babyface in peril but makes the hot tag. They use a combination move to eliminate Otunga in about ten minutes, then work on Sandow’s knees and Owens makes him tap to the Sharpshooter.

Renee tries to interview Tyson Kidd but Tyson is mean to her, snapping at her a lot when he doesn’t like her questions and yelling at her when it isn’t called for. Renee looks a little uncomfortable and tries to bring it up to Tyson by talking about his recent “change in attitude.” Tyson rudely explains (even though we should all know by now because we’ve heard it so many times that Renee and anyone else who doesn’t understand it by now must be a complete and total idiot) that Team Anger’s philosophy revolves around channeling anger into motivation, which means that, with a big match coming up, the angrier he is, the better. The interview continues with Renee brushing off Tyson’s insult like the pro she is, but she is now even more uncomfortable than before.
When Renee tells him they had an audio problem and he answered her last question too quietly so could he please repeat his answer so that the fans can hear (we can use the magic of TV production to create our own hiccup in the audio), Tyson starts to scream at her, the cameraman, the sound guy, the production people, and anyone unfortunate enough to be nearby. Nattie shows up and starts yelling at Tyson to stop yelling at poor Renee and the production staff. They shout at each other a bit as Tyson insists that he needs to be angry to win the World Heavyweight Title and as his wife Nattie should be supporting him, not telling him to calm down. Nattie, almost in tears, tells Tyson that “if this is what it takes for you to become the World Heavyweight Champion than I don’t want you to be World Heavyweight Champion!”
Nattie storms off and Tyson gets an insane, demonic look in his eyes- enough to make us think that he might actually run off and attack Nattie from behind, but instead he grabs some piece of production equipment he hasn’t thrown yet, smashes it on the floor, and walks off in the other direction. We then cut back to the kick-off show panel (sans Renee) who all fumble around awkwardly, unsure of how to address what they just saw.
The Kick-Off show ends with Kane cutting a promo saying that tonight Team Anger will be unstoppable. They will walk away with both the WWE World Tag Team Titles and the World Heavyweight Title and prove to the world once and for all that their philosophy is the key to success.

MAIN SHOW:
TRADITIONAL SURVIVOR SERIES EIGHT-MAN ELIMINATION TAG TEAM MATCH: Big Show, Kofi Kingston, Roman Reigns, & Adrian Neville) vs. The League of Nations (Sylvester Lefort, Justin Gabriel, Wade Barrett, & Alexander Rusev) (w/Lana)-
The first ten minutes or so are spent with all of the babyfaces trying to get their hands on Lefort and Lefort always running away and tagging out at the first sign of trouble. Eventually, after a schmoz on the outside, Neville corners Lefort in the ring. Lefort tries to crawl away but Neville grabs him and hits his deadlift German Suplex. Neville then stands over Lefort to yell at him and motions for the Red Arrow, but Lefort kicks him in the nuts for the intentional DQ. To add insult (and more injury) to injury, Gabriel quickly jumps in, climbs the turnbuckles, and hits Neville with a 450 splash, eliminating him and getting it back down to three-on-three.
From there things are wrestled cleanly, but start to go the heels’ way. First Kofi is knocked out via Barrett Barrage at around the fourteen minute mark. Then the heels use their three-on-two advantage to overwhelm the babyfaces, and Rusev makes the WWE Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns tap out to the Accolade at around eighteen minutes. Big Show is now the only babyface left. He makes a valiant stand, even managing to temporarily take out Justin Gabriel by nailing him with a WMD outside the ring (while Justin isn’t the legal man for his team), but he is unable to deal with both Barrett and Rusev, and when Neville recovers, the numbers are too great for Big Show to stand a prayer of overcoming, and he is eventually knocked out by Barrett at around the twenty-four minute mark.
(League of Nations wins: Alexander Rusev, Wade Barrett, and Justin Gabriel survive)


THE DUDLEY BOYZ vs. THE USOS vs. THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes)-
This is one of those matches where you need to tag in and there are only two guys legal at a time. The Colons do their best to “hide” on the apron whenever possible. Eventually things break down into a big schmoz. At around the fifteen minute mark, the Dudleys nail Jey Uso with the 3-D… but unbeknownst to Devon, Primo made a blind tag on him. The Colons then swarm into the ring and toss the Dudleys to the floor and Primo goes for the cover to steal the pin:
ONE!

TWO!

PRIMO PULLS JEY USO’S SHOULDER UP!
The announcers question why they are doing this. The Colons quickly hit their own finisher on poor Jey (who is still out of it) and pin him for the win. JBL surmises that the Colons did what they did to disrespect the 3-D by having it get “kicked out of” and then using their own move to do what the 3-D “couldn’t.” The match goes about fifteen minutes.


TRADITIONAL SURVIVOR SERIES TEN-MAN ELIMINATION TAG TEAM MATCH: Zack Ryder, Heath Slater, Stevie Richard, Bo Dallas, & Santino Marella vs. Mark Henry, Big E. Langston, Michael McGillicutty, & the Prime Time Players-
Santino Marella and Mark Henry start things off. Santino immediately sets up the Cobra and charges at Mark… who grabs him in a bear hug and makes him tap out. Darren Young, Titus O’Neil, and Michael McGillicutty all laugh. Ryder facepalms, Bo looks disheartened, but Stevie reassures him that they’ll be fine. They just need to “work smarter, not harder” to beat Mark Henry.
Stevie steps in and tries to do some hit-and-runs and Mark and finds some success. Heath Slater then tags himself in without Stevie’s consent shouts “HERE COMES THE DEVASLATER!” and grabs Mark from behind like he is trying to lift him up for something. He obviously fails, and Mark soon takes over the match. At one point Slater rolls to outside by the ramp to avoid the beating. Mark Henry follows him out, so Heath crawls farther up the ramp to escape. Mark follows… and then Slater manages to slip past Mark and runs back towards the ring. Mark follows as fast as his large body is able, but he gets counted out. Now it’s Big E.’s turn to facepalm, turning to his mentor and asking “Really, Mark? Really?” When Big E. finally turns around, he does so right into a Stevie Kick from the now-tagged-in Stevie Richards, who rushes over to cover him and gets the three count, although Big E. kicks out at about 3.2- enough to show that he was clearly beaten, but that it was more due to the surprise than to having been beaten down enough that he wouldn’t have been able to kick out no matter what.
The teams now cycle around for a few more minutes before Michael McGillicutty eliminates Stevie Richards with the McGillicutter. Bo is once again disheartened, but Stevie tells him he can do it without Stevie being there. Sure enough, a few minutes later, Bo gets a flash pin on Titus O’Neil. Soon after that the babyfaces’ advantage disappears as McGillicutter eliminates Bo after a McGillicutter.
We go two-on-two for a few minutes before Heath Slater hits Darren Young with a Michinoku Driver and gets the pin. Heath excitedly runs over to Lilian Garcia, grabs her mic and tells everyone “that was it! THAT was the DevaSlater!”
When Heath gets back into the ring, McGillicutty is ready for him and beats him up until he can make a hot tag to Ryder. They go for a few minutes before Slater makes a blind tag, and right after McGillicutty nails Ryder with a clothesline, Heath grabs McGillicutty and hits the DevaSlater for the final elimination in about seventeen minutes.
(Team Ryder, Santino, Bo, Stevie, and Slater wins: Zack Ryder and Heath Slater Survive).
Ryder retrieves his US Title belt and gets in the ring to celebrate with his teammate, but Slater turns on him and nails him with the DevaSlater as well, then walks off with Ryder’s title belt!

WWE DIVAS TITLE MATCH: Ashley Flair(c) vs. Paige-
They wrestle a good, clean match for about ten minutes before Ashley starts to fall back to what has always worked for her: cheating. She pulls the hair, she goes for the eyes, she pulls the tights, she uses the rope for illegal leverage on both pins and submissions, but Paige won’t stay down. Ashley then tries to pull the referee into the way to use as a human shield, which results in Paige crashing into the referee and the referee going down.
Ashley tries to nail Paige with the title belt but Paige avoids it and hits the Rampage… but the referee is down. Fans can count to three as many times as they want, but it won’t matter. Paige goes to wake the referee up, and while she does so, Ashley nails her in the back of the head with the Divas Title and Paige drops like a stone. Ashley disposes of the evidence and drags Paige to the middle of the ring, then drags the semi-conscious referee over as well. She covers Paige:

ONE!



TWO!



THRE-NO!
PAIGE KICKS OUT!

Ashley tries to lock in the Figure Eight but Paige counters with a small package!

ONE!



TWO!




THRE-NO!
Ashley kicks out!
From here Paige makes her comeback and they trade false finishes until, at the twenty minute mark, Paige finally makes Ashley tap out to the Stretch Muffler, clean, in the middle of the ring, to become the NEW WWE Divas Champion!

WWE WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose(c) vs. Team Anger (Jack Swagger & R-Truth) (w/Kane)-
Dean’s anger almost gets the better of him a few times and results in nearfalls for Team Anger, but he is eventually able to keep it under control, and he and Seth retain their titles in seventeen minutes when Dean pins Truth after Dirty Deeds for the clean win.

STING vs. BRAY WYATT (w/the Wyatt Family)-
Sting does his best to hold off the other Wyatts so he only has to worry about Bray. He seems to have Bray beaten several times but the other Wyatts are always distracting the referee. On one of these occasions when it is Harper and Rowan distracting the referee, Ryback sneaks into the ring and attacks Sting from behind. He then nails Sting with the Shellshock. Bray then covers Sting and his minions cease distracting the referee, allowing Bray Wyatt to pin Sting to win the match in about twenty minutes.
Bray and his people start to celebrate, but Sting gets up, grabs his bat, and chases them off, eventually nailing Rowan with the bat and hitting Harper with the Scorpion Death Drop to end the segment on a happier note.

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH: Dolph Ziggler(c) (w/Paul Heyman) vs. Tyson Kidd (w/Team Anger)-
The announcers note that Nattie is not at ringside for her husband's match, but the members of Team Anger are with him. Tyson uses his anger to motivate him. He comes out of the gate aggressively and doesn’t stop pressing the attack, but Dolph is able to hold on and picks up the clean victory in just under twenty minutes.

WWE TITLE MATCH: Antonio Cesaro(c) vs. Cody Rhodes-
Cesaro wins clean to retain in twenty minutes.
Hold #712: ARM BAR!

Author's note re Sting:
While I won't pretend he suffered a career-ending injury, I figured that since WWE got one match out of Sting after WrestleMania XXXI (the match with Big Show on Raw doesn't count), in the interests of fairness, I will also limit myself to just the one Sting match after WrestleMania XXXI, and this loss to Bray Wyatt was it. He'll still appear when necessary (he still has a role to play), but this was his last match.

WWE.com reports that due to injuries sustained last night at Survivor Series, WWE Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns will not be at Raw tonight.
Advertised for Raw are a bunch of promos (including from new Divas Champion Paige and former Divas Champion Ashley Flair), The Wyatt Family vs. Kofi, Stevie, Big E., & WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro, and a Fatal 4-Way main event pitting Seth Rollins vs. Kane vs. Mark Henry vs. Big Show.


Raw: (11/23/2015)- Nashville, TN
Raw opens with a big celebration for our new WWE Divas Champion, Paige. She cuts the standard “the title means so much to me; I’ve fought so long and hard to get it” promo. Michael Cole tells us that we will hear from former champion Ashley Flair later tonight.

The announcers recap Heath Slater’s post-match attack on Zack Ryder last night at Survivor Series and tell us that Heath has made an unusual challenge tonight.

THE USOS vs. THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS (Wade Barrett & Justin Gabriel) (w/Sylvester Lefort, Alexander Rusev, & Lana)-
The League wins clean in thirteen minutes when Barrett knocks Jimmy Uso out with the Barrett Barrage. After the match, the League all cut a promo about their victory last night, especially focusing on the fact that Rusev made WWE Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns tap out. Lefort says that this proves what he has been saying all along: that Rusev will defeat Roman Reigns for the IC Title if given the chance (Cole points out that Rusev has had the chance but has failed. JBL responds by pointing out that it was never in a one-on-one match and that Roman- or anyone else for that matter- has not pinned Rusev or made him submit).

Antonio Cesaro cuts a promo about his successful WWE Title defense against Cody Rhodes last night at Survivor Series. The announcers tell us that World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler will also be addressing the WWE Universe tonight regarding his successful title defense against Tyson Kidd.

HEATH SLATER vs. TYE DILLINGER-
Before the match the announcers set it up for us by reading a Tweet from Heath Slater in which he challenged someone from NXT to a match tonight to show that he can beat an NXT guy because NXT is where Zack Ryder belongs. Heath squashes Dillinger, pinning him with the DevaSlater.
After the match, Bo Dallas comes out and says he is sad that Slater attacked Zack Ryder last night, but he hopes they can put it behind them and they can re-form their victorious team from last night. Slater responds to his by attacking Bo and laying him out with the DevaSlater. Zack Ryder comes out and chases Slater away.

The Dudleys cut an angry backstage promo on the Colons. They say they have no problem with The Colons stealing their pin last night. That’s part of wrestling. But they have a HUGE problem with the way The Colons disrespected the 3-D by pulling the clearly-beaten Jey Uso up at two and then hitting their own finisher for the win.

Dolph Ziggler comes out to the ring and cuts a promo bragging about his successful World Heavyweight Title defense against Tyson Kidd at Survivor Series. He says that last night’s win was due to his superior speed and agility, and says that he so out-classed Tyson Kidd that he made him look like “that tub of lard loser Mark Henry, who got eliminated from his match via count-out because he was too, old, slow and fat to get back into the ring in time.”

KALISTO vs. MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY-
Kalisto wins clean and surprisingly dominantly in seven minutes via Salida del Sol.

Ashley Flair cuts a promo saying that Paige’s Divas Title win last night was a fluke and she wants her rematch.

Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn cut a promo putting over their friendship and their renewed health, saying that last night’s victory over the Brain Trust shows that they are at their strongest when they are working together, creating a whole that is more than the sum of its parts. Also, they want to win the tag titles together.

FATAL 4-WAY: Brie Bella vs. Alicia Fox vs. Cameron vs. Naomi (w/Brain Trust)-
Fox wins clean, pinning Cameron after a Moonsault.

Adrian Neville cuts a backstage promo recapping his elimination from last night’s traditional Survivor Series elimination tag team match and saying that he still wants to get his hands on Justin Gabriel and Sylvester Lefort.

THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS vs. THE COLONS (w/Rosa Mendes)-
PTP win by count-out when the Dudleys show up and chase the Colons away.

Brain Trust come out to the ring and call out Rollins and Ambrose. Only Ambrose comes out, because, as Dean explains “Seth is on the John,” but he’s happy to do business with them. They say they want a match against Rollins and Ambrose. Dean accepts the challenge. Sandow and Otunga then say things to provoke the hot-headed Dean into starting a fight despite the two-on-one odds. Brain Trust beat Dean down until Rollins shows up to make the save. Sandow and Otunga insist that now that Rollins is here, the match should start, but Steph comes out and says that doing so wouldn’t be fair because Ambrose has been beaten down, so she books the match for this Thursday night on Smackdown.

Stevie Richards cuts a promo saying he is very disappointed in Heath Slater’s actions. He has spent all day today preparing for his big eight-man tag team match, but he will address Slater this Thursday on Smackdown.

ROSE MENDES vs. EMMA-
The announcers note that The Colons aren’t out here with Rosa because they left the building when the Dudleys came after them before. Emma wins clean in three minutes, all but squashing Rosa.

THE WYATT FAMILY vs. ANTONIO CESARO, STEVIE RICHARDS, KOFI KINGSTON, & BIG E. LANGSTON (w/Mark Henry & Big Show)-
Wyatts win clean in fifteen minutes when Ryback pins Stevie after a Shell Shock. The announcers use the fact that Mark Henry is out here to both remind us of the fact that he is in tonight’s main event, and also to remind us that Dolph Ziggler made fun of him earlier. (Cesaro doesn’t do too much because we have him in this eight-man tag to protect his injured shoulder).
After the match, Bray cuts a promo bragging about his victory over Sting at Survivor Series, saying that once again he has defied the odds and defied the critics and proved that, “through Bray Wyatt , all things are possible.”

Cody Rhodes cuts a backstage promo in which he admits that he lost fair and square in his WWE Title match against Cesaro last night… but that doesn’t change the fact that he is still owed an equally fair contractually obligated rematch for the World Heavyweight Title that he lost back at SummerSlam. Now that he and Cesaro have settled their beef, there is no one to stop him from defeating Dolph Ziggler and regaining his title.


NATALYA NEIDHART vs. TAMINA (w/Summer Rae)-
The announcers note that Tyson Kidd is not at ringside with Nattie as he usually is, and they wonder if this is related to their spat on last night’s Survivor Series Kick-off Show. Summer Rae’s outside shenanigans allow Tamina to get the heat, but Nattie makes a comeback, and during the comeback, when Summer tries to insert herself into the match again, Nattie levels her with a clothesline. Tamina eventually picks up the win in nine minutes.
After the match, an angry Summer Rae starts to put the boots to Nattie, and Tamina joins in. Tyson Kidd runs out and pulls his wife to safety.



FATAL 4-WAY: Seth Rollins vs. Big Show (w/Kofi Kingston) vs. Mark Henry (w/Big E. Langston) vs. Kane (w/Team Anger)-
The announcers note that Tyson Kidd is not at ringside with Team Anger like he has been recently. Cole wonders if this means he has given up their philosophy while JBL dismisses it as inconsequential. After all, we’ve seen Ryback not at ringside with the Wyatt Family and vice versa plenty of times over the past month and a half or so, and he is still a proud member of the Wyatt Family.
They also note that Seth Rollins is the only competitor who doesn’t have someone at ringside with him because Dean Ambrose was injured by the Brain Trust earlier tonight. They wonder how the presence of the others at ringside but the knowledge that Dean isn’t there will effect Seth. Perhaps it will distract him and cause him to lose. JBL suggests that it may even fuel Seth, and cause him to unwittingly embrace the philosophy of Team Anger that he has spoken out against recently. Seth is able to keep himself calm and collected all match, and even picks up the victory in twenty-five minutes, pinning Kane after a Phoenix Splash, with Mark Henry getting there a moment too late to break up the pin.



Main Event: (11/24/2015)
KEVIN OWENS & SAMI ZAYN vs. TEAM ANGER (R-Truth & Jack Swagger) (w/Kane)-
Owens & Zayn win clean in thirteen minutes. The announcers note that Tyson Kidd is not at ringside with Team Anger, and speculate that this is because he is preparing for his main event match tonight against Kalisto.

THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS vs. THE DUDLEY BOYZ-
PTP win in six minutes when The Colons come out and distract the Dudleys.

KALISTO vs. TYSON KIDD (w/Natalya Neidhart & Team Anger)-
The announcers note that Nattie is back at ringside with Tyson after he saved her last night. Kalisto wins clean in fifteen minutes with the Salida del Sol.

Smackdown: (11/26/2015)- Indianapolis, IN

Smackdown opens with Cody Rhodes in the ring, demanding that Dolph Ziggler give him his contractually-obligated rematch for the World Heavyweight Title. Dolph points out that Cody technically already got his contractually-obligated rematch three weeks ago on Raw in Denver. He isn’t entitled to another rematch, but Steph was nice enough to let him have one and pick who he wanted to challenge at Survivor Series… where he was too afraid to face Dolph so instead he challenged Cesaro for the WWE Title… and lost. He doesn’t get another title shot because he’s a loser, just like Mark Henry and Heath Slater.
This brings out Mark Henry, who dares Dolph to call him a loser again to his face. Heath Slater comes out and yells that, Mark Henry IS a loser. He proved that when he eliminated him from their traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Match on Sunday. And Cody Rhodes is a loser, too. If anyone deserves a title shot around here, it’s Heath deserving a shot at Zack Ryder’s US Title after carrying Zack at Survivor Series.
Things get heated with Slater and Dolph calling the other two losers but then Dolph starts to insult Heath as well while Cody makes fun of Mark Henry for getting eliminated by Slater at Survivor Series by being too slow to get back in the ring, and eventually a fight breaks out. Steph comes out and has legions of security separate everyone, and we head to our first commercial break. When we return from the commercial, Steph is in her office, and announces that tomorrow night’s featured match on Superstars will be a four way tag team match, with Mark Henry, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes, and Heath Slater, each needing to find a tag team partner by the end of the night.

PAIGE vs. BRIE BELLA-
Paige wins clean in nine minutes via Stretch Muffler. After the match, Ashley Flair comes out to confront Paige, telling her that her title win was a fluke, and she intends to prove it by beating Paige again and again because she wants her contractually obligated rematch to be a 30-minute Ironwoman match. Paige agrees, and we soon learn from the announcers that Steph has officially signed off on the match for December’s WrestleWar PPV.

SETH ROLLINS & DEAN AMBROSE vs. THE BRAIN TRUST (w/Naomi)-
The Brain Trust try to throw Dean off of his game by exploiting his penchant for anger by taunting him, but Dean manages to keep his cool, and he and Seth pick up a clean victory in ten minutes. After the match we get a reaction interview with Renee Young where Dean explains that he has realized that Team Anger’s philosophy is wrong and he just needs to be himself without trying to go overboard on making himself angry.
Seth then starts to cut a basic babyface promo about how they eagerly await their next challengers, but he is interrupted when Michael Cole receives word that Zack Ryder has been attacked backstage and we cut over to Byron Saxton, who is rushing over with a cameraman. No one knows who did it, but everyone assumes it was Heath Slater.

KEVIN OWENS & SAMI ZAYN vs. THE DUDLEY BOYZ-
Owens & Zayn win after The Colons sneak down to ringside and Primo nails Devon with brass knuckles. Neither the referee nor Owens nor Zayn see the interference.

We get a backstage promo by Mark Henry announcing that he has chosen his protégé and regular tag team partner Big E. Langston to team with him in tomorrow night’s featured match on Superstars.



HEATH SLATER vs. A JOBBER-
Slater brutalizes the jobber. After the match Stevie Richards comes out to try to talk to Slater and asks him why he attacked Ryder at the PPV and why he has attacked him tonight. Slater says that he doesn’t have time for Stevie’s touchy-feely crap right now because he has to go find a tag team partner for tomorrow night and he doesn’t want a loser like Stevie has his partner. If Stevie really wants to find out what is in his head, he can meet him in the ring next week on Raw.

Team Anger cut a backstage promo building up their match teaming with Michael McGillicutty against The Wyatt Family in tonight’s main event. At the end, Kane tells Tyson Kidd that he senses much anger in Heath Slater and because Tyson isn’t wrestling tonight, he wants Tyson to try to preach their message to Heath and try to recruit him (but, you know he would say it in a way that doesn’t sound like dialogue directly lifted from Star Wars).

ANTONIO CESARO & THE USOS vs. THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS (w/Sylvester Lefort & Lana)-
League wins clean in ten minutes when Rusev makes Jimmy Uso tap to the Accolade. The announcers hype up that Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns will cut a promo later tonight addressing the fact that Rusev made him tap out at Survivor Series.

THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS vs. KOFI KINGSTON & BIG SHOW-
PTP win clean in eight minutes.

Heath Slater cuts a backstage promo announcing that Tyson Kidd will be his tag team partner for tomorrow night’s featured match on Superstars.

Roman cuts a backstage backstage promo essentially saying “yeah, I lost. And yeah, Rusev you deserve a title shot. You earned it. I’ve got no problem with that. Whenever you want it, come get it.”

Zack Ryder cuts a backstage promo saying that Heath Slater was the one who attacked him, and that he wants to team with either Cody or Ziggler- he doesn’t care which- so that he can get his hands on Slater tomorrow night.

KALISTO vs. ADRIAN NEVILLE-
Kalisto wins clean in fifteen minutes.

After a commercial break, we get a backstage promo by Paul Heyman announcing that Dolph Ziggler’s tag team partner for tomorrow night will be Kalisto. The announcers are very surprised by this.

Cody Rhodes cuts a backstage promo saying that he will team with Zack Ryder tomorrow night on Superstars, so long as Ryder agrees to stay out of his way and not try to pin Ziggler.

THE WYATT FAMILY vs. MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY & TEAM ANGER (w/Tyson Kidd & Heath Slater)-
The announcers note that while Tyson Kidd and Heath Slater are at ringside with Team Anger, but Nattie isn’t out at ringside along with Tyson.
The match goes back and forth for fifteen minutes before Bray nails Kane with the Monster Tamer, but Kane kicks out. A few minutes later, Ryback gets Kane up and hits him with the Shellshock, but as he does Bray reaches over and tags himself in, pinning Kane himself. After the match, Bray starts to cut a promo saying that once again this victory proves that “through Bray Wyatt, all things are possible.”
Then STING shows up and grabs a mic, and asked a very pointed question: “Did Bray Wyatt make that possible… or did Ryback make that possible? Did Bray Wyatt beat me at Survivor Series, or did Ryback do that? Just some food for thought. Happy Thanksgiving.”





On Friday morning WWE.com airs an interview with Kalisto in which he says he was shocked that Paul Heyman and Dolph Ziggler picked him to team with Ziggler on Superstars tonight, but he will treat this like any other match and do his best to win.



Superstars: (11/27/2015)

MARK HENRY & BIG E. LANGSTON vs. ZACK RYDER & CODY RHODES vs. KALISTO & DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman) vs. HEATH SLATER & TYSON KIDD (w/Team Anger & Natalya Neidhart)-
The interviews on tonight’s show are very short- just what we need to get over the basic set-up of the match. Ryder wants Slater. Dolph thinks Mark Henry and Heath Slater are losers. Slater and Mark want to prove that they’re not losers (and Big E. wants to help Mark). Cody wants a shot at Dolph’s title. Kalisto isn’t sure why he has been chosen to team with Dolph. Tyson wants to show Heath the virtues of following Team Anger’s philosophy (and Nattie wishes that Tyson wasn’t doing so).
The match goes about thirty minutes, with Mark Henry pinning Tyson Kidd. After the match, Slater shoves Tyson down and walks off.

Over the weekend it is announced that as a result of their altercation after the featured match on Friday’s Superstars, Heath Slater vs. Tyson Kidd has been booked for Tuesday’s episode of Main Event.


Raw: (11/30/2015)- Pittsburgh, PA
Tonight’s main event will be the League of Nations taking on WWE Champion Antonio Cesaro, Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns, & Adrian Neville. We get promos hyping it up interspersed throughout the show.

ASHLEY FLAIR vs. NATALYA NEIDHART (w/Tyson Kidd)-
Ashley wins clean in seventeen minutes, making Nattie tap to the Figure Eight. When Nattie and Tyson make it to the back, Renee Young catches them for a reaction interview. Nattie talks about disappointed she is with her recent string of losses. Tyson offers his wife words of encouragement. The announcers note that this is very different from the last time they had a reaction interview together when Nattie lost and Tyson criticized her for not following Team Anger’s philosophy.

We get a backstage promo by Owens and Zayn. Zayn apologizes to the Dudleys, swearing that they didn’t see the Colons’ interference in their match on Smackdown. Owens then grabs the mic and says that although they’d prefer not to have won that way, that doesn’t mean they don’t want their victory in the record books. Dean Ambrose happens to be walking by, and he complements them on this attitude, telling them that “success is all about seizing the opportunity,” and giving his WWE Title Money in the Bank Contract Briefcase a meaningful pat. Dean wishes them good luck in their match later against Mark Henry and Big E. Langston and then walks off.

THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS vs. TEAM ANGER (Jack Swagger & R-Truth) (w/Tyson Kidd & Kane)-
PTP win clean in nine minutes when Darren Young rolls up R-Truth. After the match Truth, Swagger, and Kane all bear down on the referee but Tyson Kidd gets between them, telling them that it’s not worth risking a suspension.

HEATH SLATER vs. A JOBBER-
Heath squashes the jobber. Stevie Richards comes out and says he respected Heath’s wishes and didn’t bother him on Smackdown and now he is out here on Raw like Heath had said, so now he wants an explanation from Heath as to why Heath turned heel on Ryder at Survivor Series. Instead of giving him an explanation, Heath kicks Stevie in the nuts and lays him out with the DevaSlater. Heath keeps the beat-down going until Zack Ryder comes out swinging a chair to make the save.

We get a recap of Sting’s appearance on Smackdown for all those who made the mistake of skipping the Thanksgiving edition of Smackdown.

ZACK RYDER vs. TYSON KIDD (w/Natalya Neidhart & Team Anger)-
Ryder comes out of the gate swinging hard. The announcers speculate that he is angry over what just happened to Stevie Richards and is, ironically, using Team Anger’s philosophy against one of their members. Ryder wins clean in seven minutes. After the match Kane cuts a promo putting over both Ryder and Slater for using their philosophy. He notes that perhaps “some members” of Team Anger themselves should take a lesson from this and rededicate themselves to Team Anger’s philosophy. The announcers speculate that Kane was perhaps sending a message to Tyson Kidd, noting both his loss here and his behavior earlier.

BRAY WYATT (w/the Wyatt Family) vs. SETH ROLLINS (w/Deam Ambrose)-
Bray wins clean in seventeen minutes with the Monster Tamer. The announcers take this time to recap Sting’s comments from Smackdown for us and speculate on dissension within the Wyatt Family.

CODY RHODES vs. DEVON DUDLEY (w/Bubba Ray Dudley)-
A few minutes into the match, The Colons come out and attack Bubba. They put the boots to him, and as Devon goes to try to help, Cody rolls him up with an O’Connor Roll for the pin. Devon rushes out to help Bubba, but by the time he gets there Bubba has already been beaten down enough that The Colons can now turn their attention to Devon, and he gets beaten up two-on-one as well. Devon is similarly beaten down... and then The Colons put The Dudley Boyz through tables, which the announcers sell as the ultimate insult.

KEVIN OWENS & SAMI ZAYN vs. MARK HENRY & BIG E. LANGSTON-
Owens & Zayn win clean in thirteen minutes when Zayn nails Big E. with a Helluva Kick and Owens hits the Bullfrog Splash for the pin. Dolph Ziggler is on commentary and makes fun of Mark Henry for being fat and slow and old.

Cody Rhodes cuts a backstage promo saying that he beat Devon here tonight so now he wants the World Heavyweight Title shot he deserves.

DAMIEN SANDOW (w/Brain Trust) vs. RYBACK (w/the Wyatt Family)-
Ryback wins clean in eight minutes with Shell Shock.

We go backstage to Steph’s office where she runs down some matches for later this week on WWE TV. First and foremost, she announces that Cody Rhodes will be granted another shot at Dolph Ziggler tomorrow night on Main Event… but it will be non-title. Cody is not contractually owed another title shot, so if he wants another one, he’ll have to prove he serves it.
She also announces Mark Henry vs. Kofi Kingston for Main Event, Paige vs. Emma and Cesaro vs. Big Show for Smackdown, and Big Show & Kofi vs. Zayn & Owens as the featured match on Superstars.
As Steph is wrapping up, STING suddenly appears. He points out to Steph that both Bray Wyatt and Ryback have been winning a lot lately and perhaps they are both worthy of consideration for a WWE Title shot. Steph thanks Sting for his input but says that she doesn’t quite agree. They are both on the cusp of a title shot- perhaps one or two wins away. Sting proposes that they both be booked in matches tomorrow night on Main Event to see if one of them loses. Steph points out to Sting that it’s possible that both of them win their match, to which Sting replies that he knows… and he has an idea for what should happen if they do.

KALISTO vs. KANE (w/Team Anger)-
Paul Heyman comes out to watch this match from the ramp. He (and the rest of us) get to see Kalisto pull of the huge upset victory, managing to pin Kane after an Avalanche Salida Del Sol in twenty minutes. Swagger and Truth attack Kalisto after the match. Tyson Kidd tries to pull them off and calm them down. Security and a bunch of babyfaces show up to help protect Kalisto.


Paige cuts a backstage promo hyping up her Ironwoman title defense against Ashley at WrestleWar. She says Ashley’s seventeen-minute match earlier tonight was impressive, but it’s still not the full half hour she needs to be able to prove she can last for.

ANTONIO CESARO, ROMAN REIGNS, & ADRIAN NEVILLE vs. THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS (w/Sylvester Lefort & Lana)-
Things break down into a schmoz almost immediately. Roman and Rusev wind up brawling on the floor. Roman knocks Rusev down but gets dived onto by Gabriel. Neville then charges across the ring and dives onto all three of them. Then Cesaro gets ready to dive but he gets cut off by Barrett. Barrett lands a few hard strikes and then nails Cesaro with a VICIOUS Barrett Barrage. Then Wade Barrett pins the knocked out WWE Champion just under two minutes into the match.
The announcers go nuts and put the Barrett Barrage over HUGE. We kill the remaining time on the show (maybe we have a shorter overrun than usual) with Lefort and Barrett cutting promos while medical personnel attend to Cesaro.


WWE.com reports that Cesaro suffered a possible concussion when he was knocked out by Wade Barrett last night on Raw and will not return to the ring until he has been medically cleared (so his match with Big Show on Smackdown is cancelled).
The Dudley Boyz vs. The Colons in a Tables Match has been booked for Smackdown, as has Heath Slater vs. Stevie Richards.



Main Event: (12/1/2015)
ADRIAN NEVILLE vs. BRAY WYATT (w/the Wyatt Family)-
The announcers remind us that Steph said that both Bray and Ryback are on the cusp of earning a WWE Title shot so tonight’s matches are very big matches for both men. Bray wins in eight minutes after interference from Harper and Rowan.

MARK HENRY (w/Big E. Langston) vs. KOFI KINGSTON (w/Big Show)-
Dolph Ziggler joins the commentary team for this match. Kofi spends the first few minutes of the match using his speed evade Mark Henry’s grasp, and Dolph takes this as another opportunity to make fun of Mark Henry for being “too fat and slow.” Then, when Mark finally manages to catch Kofi, he locks in the bearhug and doesn’t let go despite Kofi’s best efforts to escape, and a minute later Kofi Kingston is forced to tap out. Dolph is frightened by this, but soon regains his bravado by saying that he is much faster than Kofi Kingston and Mark Henry would never be able to catch him.

HEATH SLATER vs. TYSON KIDD (w/Team Anger & Natalya Neidhart)-
Slater wins clean in six minutes with the DevaSlater. After the match Kane complements Heath on channeling his anger well and invites him to join Team Anger but Heath ignores him and walks to the back.

BIG SHOW (w/Kofi Kingston) vs. RYBACK (w/the Wyatt Family)-
Kofi’s ribs are taped up to sell Mark Henry’s bearhug. The announcers note that this will put him and Big Show at even more of a disadvantage if the Wyatts try to interfere. Ryback wins clean in ten minutes with Shell Shock, with the announcers noting that none of his Wyatt Family brothers tried to interfere even though they had interfered on Bray’s behalf earlier tonight.

CODY RHODES vs. DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/Paul Heyman)-
Cody wins in eight minutes via count-out when they do a double-down on the outside and Cody makes it back into the ring in time but Dolph makes it back in a second too late.



WWE.com announces that as a result of his count-out victory over World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler on Main Event, Cody Rhodes has earned a title shot on this week’s Smackdown. Also signed for Smackdown are Owens & Zayn vs. Harper & Rowan of The Wyatt Family and a rematch of two thirds of Raw’s main event with Neville and Reigns taking on the League of Nations’ Rusev and Gabriel.



Smackdown: (12/3/2015)- Hershey, PA
KALISTO vs. TYSON KIDD (w/Natalya Neidhart & Team Anger)-
Kalisto wins clean in seven minutes with Salida Del Sol. Paul Heyman is once again watching from the ramp.

The League of Nations cut a backstage promo. Barrett talks about having knocked out the WWE Champion on Raw and announces that Steph just informed him that he will be getting the first title shot whenever Cesaro returns from the probable concussion Wade gave him. Lefort hypes up tonight’s match by jokingly saying that maybe Roman and Neville will stand a better chance tonight without the WWE Champion on their team.

MARK HENRY (w/Big E. Langston) vs. DAVID OTUNGA (w/Brain Trust)-
Henry dominates and wins clean in three minutes with the bearhug.

HEATH SLATER vs. STEVIE RICHARDS-
Heath pins Stevie clean in six minutes with the DevaSlater, then gets a chair and continues the beat-down after the match. Zack Ryder and Bo Dallas come out to help Stevie but Kane, Jack Swagger, and R-Truth of Team Anger come out and attack them. Heath hits Stevie with the DevaSlater on a steel chair and Stevie is stretchered out.

ADRIAN NEVILLE & ROMAN REIGNS vs. THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS (Justin Gabriel & Alexander Rusev) (w/Wade Barrett, Sylvester Lefort, & Lana)-
Gabriel does his best to avoid having to face Neville. This contrasts with Roman and Rusev, who are eager to go at it with each other. Rusev makes Neville tap to the Accolade in seven minutes after Gabriel hits Neville in the back with a chair while Lefort has the referee distracted.

EMMA vs. PAIGE-
They have a slow-placed, technical match that goes twenty minutes. Paige works on the leg all match and wins clean with the Stretch Muffler. Ashley Flair is on commentary and claims that she has more stamina than Paige and that this will help her win their 30 Minute Ironwoman Match for the Divas Title next Sunday at WrestleWar.

TABLES MATCH: The Dudley Boyz vs. The Colons (w/Rosa Mendes)-
Rosa is a thorn in the Dudleys’ side all night, distracting them, unsetting their tables, and even occasionally directly interfering in the match. The Colons get the win in thirteen minutes, shocking the world by beating the Dudleys in their own signature match.

KEVIN OWENS & SAMI ZAYN vs. THE WYATT FAMILY (Luke Harper & Erick Rowan) (w/Bray Wyatt & Ryback)-
Owens & Zayn win clean in six minutes when Owens counters an attempted powerbomb by Harper into a sunset flip for the pin. The Wyatts all bear down on Owens and Zayn afterwards but Rollins and Ambrose come out to help them escape.
Once the babyfaces have left, Bray grabs a mic and starts to cut a promo, but he is quickly interrupted by Steph’s music. Steph says that she has a big announcement to make that the Wyatts might want to listen to, but instead of making it herself, she will let the person who came up with the idea make the announcement, and that person is “the man they call… STING!”
Sting comes out announces that because they both won their matches on Main Event and are both on the cusp of earning a WWE Title shot, there will be a #1 contendership match at WrestleWar, and that match will be Bray Wyatt vs. Ryback! Sting advises Ryback to be on the lookout for interference by Harper and Rowan, pointing out that they interfered to help Bray on Main Event but did not do the same for Ryback.

We get a backstage interview with Heath Slater about his actions earlier tonight. He says that Stevie Richards has been a loser his entire career so putting him out of his misery was really doing him a favor. He says that Ryder and Bo are idiots for looking up to him and thinking he can teach them anything. He vows to keep hurting friends of Ryder’s until Zack gives him a US Title shot.
Tyson Kidd shows up and tells Slater that Team Anger has been very impressed by his ability to use his anger to fuel his determination and says they’d like him to join their faction. Slater rejects this offer, saying that he’s been watching their matches for the past week and they’re all a bunch of losers… and Tyson himself is the biggest loser of all.

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH: Dolph Ziggler(c) (w/Paul Heyman) vs. Cody Rhodes-
Mark Henry is on commentary for this match, making fun of Dolph and calling Dolph “fat and slow” because he couldn’t beat the ten-count back into the ring on Main Event, which is how Cody earned this title shot. Dolph wins clean in eighteen minutes. After the match, as Dolph goes to leave, Mark Henry comes up behind him and grabs the World Heavyweight Title belt from him. Dolph tries to snatch it back but Mark is the World’s Strongest Man so he is obviously unable to do so. After about thirty seconds Mark decides that he has made his point and lets the belt go, causing Dolph to fall back on his ass. Dolph scurries away as the show ends.


Superstars: (12/4/2015)
Tonight’s featured match is Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn vs. Big Show & Kofi Kingston. Our interviews and video packages all talk about how each team feels their friendship is essential to their in-ring chemistry. Ambrose & Rollins, The Usos, and the Prime Time Players all weigh in with similar opinions.

KEVIN OWENS & SAMI ZAYN vs. KOFI KINGSTON & BIG SHOW-
Owens & Zayn win clean in thirty minutes.

ROAD TO WRESTLEWAR 2015

WWE TITLE MATCH:

Wade Barrett spends the next week cutting promos saying he will once again knock Cesaro out with the Barrett Barrage, but this time he’ll become the WWE Champion, too. Cesaro’s promos focus on the importance of getting back up after you get knocked down.

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH:

Mark Henry is named the #1 contender. Dolph keeps making fun of him for being old and slow. Mark’s promos all focus on the fact that- like he showed on the 12/3 Smackdown, he only needs to get his hands on Dolph once and never let go. On the go-home show Mark catches Dolph in the Bearhug and makes him tap out to win a tag-team main event

DIVAS TITLE MATCH:
Paige and Ashley spend their last week having even longer matches (which they win), until they both go close to thirty minutes to build up to their Ironwoman match.


INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE MATCH:

Roman Reigns defends against Rusev. They are eager to go at each other. The announcers push it as “two rams wanting to butt heads” or something like that.

TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH:
Owens & Zayn have picked up a bunch of wins and are awarded #1 contendership against Rollins & Ambrose. We focus on how both teams are made up of best friends.

WWE TITLE #1 CONTENDERSHIP MATCH:

Bray insists to Ryback that there will be no interference and the better wrestler will win. Ryback seems to believe him. Bray keeps warning that Sting is lying and trying to turn Ryback against him to weaken the Wyatt Family and not because Sting actually cares about Ryback.


US TITLE MATCH:

Ryder agrees to give Slater a US Title shot so he can get some revenge on him for taking out his friends. Heath keeps putting people down with the DevaSlater to build that move up.


COLONS VS. DUDLEYS:

The Dudleys want revenge on the Colons but the Colons say they have taken everything from the Dudleys: they destroyed the legacy of the 3-D, beat them up in ECW’s old stomping grounds and beat them in their own match. All they have left is their careers. Bubba and Devon offer to put their careers on the line, and the Colons accept.

ADRIAN NEVILLE vs. JUSTIN GABRIEL:
Neville demands that Gabriel face him like a man and not run away like a coward. Gabriel accepts, provided that Lefort and Lana are allowed to be at ringside

TEAM ANGER STUFF:

Kane is angry that Heath Slater has rejected them and blames it on Tyson Kidd. Kane keeps trying to provoke Tyson to anger but he won’t allow himself to become too consumed by anger because the last time it did so it almost ruined his marriage. Kane finally succeeds in provoking Tyson to anger by threatening Nattie. They are booked in a match against each other for the PPV.

THE OTHER MATCH:

Paul Heyman has been scouting Kalisto for unknown reasons. He suggests to Steph that she book Kalisto vs. Cody at WrestleWar and Steph agrees.

WRESTLEWAR RUNDOWN

WWE WrestleWar 2015: (12/13/2015)- Boston, MA


30-MINUTE IRONWOMAN MATCH FOR THE WWE DIVAS TITLE: Paige(c) vs. Ashley Flair
After months of controversial losses, Paige finally defeated Ashley to win the Divas Title last month at Survivor Series, but Ashley insists the win was a fluke. Now both women will have the chance to determine who truly deserves to be the Divas Champion

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH: Dolph Ziggler(c) (w/Paul Heyman) vs. Mark Henry
Dolph has had some choice words for Mark Henry, insisting that his massive advantage in speed and agility will overcome the power of The World's Strongest Man. Now he must put his money- and his title- where his mouth is!

WWE TITLE MATCH: Antonio Cesaro(c) vs. Wade Barrett (w/Sylvester Lefort's League of Nations)
"The man who knocked out Brock Lesnar" has already knocked out the WWE Champion once. Are we just one Barrett Barrage away from having our first-ever British WWE Champion?

WWE TITLE #1 CONTENDERSHIP MATCH: Bray Wyatt (w/the Wyatt Family) vs. Ryback (also w/the Wyatt Family)
At the suggestion of the man they call Sting, two members of the Wyatt Family face off. Will Bray meet Sting's challenge and prove to the world that he is not just out for himself by wrestling cleanly and letting the better man win, or will Harper and Rowan interfere and turn this sibling rivalry into an all-out Wyatt civil war?

WWE INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE MATCH: Roman Reigns(c) vs. Alexander Rusev (w/Lana & Sylvester Lefort's League of Nations)
The League of Nations has spent months claiming that Roman has been dodging Rusev. Now it's time to put up or shut up!

WWE WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose(c) vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn
Two teams of best friends collide, with the highest prize in tag team wrestling at stake!

WWE UNITED STATES TITLE MATCH: Zack Ryder(c) vs. Heath Slater
Slater wants the belt. Ryder wants revenge. Only one of them will leave Boston satisfied!

IF THE DUDLEYS LOSE, THEY MUST RETIRE: The Dudley Boyz vs. The Colons (w/Rosa Mendes)
The Colons have beaten the Dudleys at their specialty match and ruined the legacy of the Dudley Death Drop. They say the only thing left they can take from The Dudley Boyz is their careers... and Bubba & Devon want revenge badly enough to be willing to put their legendary careers on the line! Will this be the last time we ever see the most decorated tag team in history compete in a WWE ring?

ADRIAN NEVILLE vs. JUSTIN GABRIEL (w/Sylvester Lefort's League of Nations)
After two months Neville finally gets his chance for revenge on his former tag team partner for screwing him out of the King of the Ring tournament and a shot at the World Heavyweight Title!

TYSON KIDD (w/Natalya Neidhart) vs. KANE (w/Team Anger)
Team Anger members collide as Kane, blaming Tyson for their failure to recruit Heath Slater, has questioned Tyson's commitment to Team Anger's philosophy since Tyson's loss to Dolph Ziggler at Survivor Series. He thinks that he has found the missing element to drive Tyson back to his anger by threatening Tyson's wife Natalya... but will this strategy backfire and push Tyson too far over the edge, forcing the Big Red Machine to take one hell of a beating?

KALISTO vs. CODY RHODES
A featured singles bout between two Superstars looking to get back in title contention.

WWE WrestleWar 2015: (12/13/2015)- Boston, MA


KICK-OFF SHOW:
The Dudleys cut a promo saying that this could be the final match of their careers, but they won’t go down without a fight.
Other people also cut promos to hype up the various title matches.
Paul Heyman appears on the panel to talk up the Cody Rhodes vs. Kalisto match (as well as Ziggler’s World Heavyweight Title defense).

ADRIAN NEVILLE vs. JUSTIN GABRIEL (w/Sylvester Lefort)-
They go for about eleven minutes until Neville is about to hit the Red Arrow but Gabriel distracts the referee and Lefort crotches Neville on the top rope. Gabriel comes back to win the match at around the 12:30 mark.


MAIN SHOW:
KALISTO vs. CODY RHODES-
Paul Heyman once again watches the match from the ramp. Kalisto wins clean in seventeen minutes when he counters Cody’s set-up for Cross Rhodes with Salida Del Sol. The objective here is for these two to have a blow-away match that will get people talking about them.

Lana, Lefort, and Rusev come out to the ring. Lana cuts a promo on behalf of Rusev saying he will destroy the pathetic American Roman Reigns and take the IC Title just like everyone has known he can do all along. He is tired of waiting for his match so he wants his match right now!

WWE INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE MATCH: Roman Reigns(c) vs. Alexander Rusev (w/Lana & Sylvester Lefort)-
Early on, Neville comes out to try to get at Lefort but Lefort runs away (and Neville gives chase). Rusev wins completely cleanly in eighteen minutes when Roman passes out in the Accolade to end Roman Reigns’ almost fifteen-month IC Title reign less than a week short of the Honky Tonk Man’s record.

WWE WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose(c) vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn-
Rollins & Ambrose win the battle of the best friends clean in eighteen minutes when Seth pins Zayn after they hit some sort of cool double-team maneuver. This will be a more fast-paced match to contrast with the slower pace of the Roman vs. Rusev match.

TYSON KIDD vs. KANE (w/Team Anger)-
Nattie is not at ringside with Tyson due to the threats Kane made against her. Kane spends the match trying to provoke Tyson to anger- usually by threatening to have terrible things done to Nattie. Tyson manages to maintain his cool throughout while Kane gets angrier and angrier at his inability to provoke Tyson. Most of the offense that Tyson manages to get in is targeting Kane’s legs, and Tyson eventually manages to surprise Kane with a double-leg and quickly pin him with an alligator clutch in seven minutes. Tyson bails before anyone from Team Anger can process what has happened.

WWE UNITED STATES TITLE MATCH: Zack Ryder(c) vs. Heath Slater-
They charge at each other as soon as the bell rings and continue to brawl throughout the match. This is our “it’s not a wrestling match, it’s a fight” match for the night. Eventually we get a ref bump but the Zack and Heath just keep fighting. Zack gets the advantage but Heath nails him with a low blow. Slater then gets a chair and nails Ryder in the “head” with it (he’ll get his hands up), knocking him out. Heath gives Zack a few more chairshots to the back just for good measure before sliding the chair out of the ring, waking up the ref, turning Zack over, and pinning him to win the US Title in just under fourteen minutes (to Cole’s desperate calls of “NO! Not like this!”).

WINNER BECOMES #1 CONTENDER TO THE WWE TITLE: Bray Wyatt (w/the Wyatt Family) vs. Ryback (w/the Wyatt Family)-
Before the match we get a video package reminding us of how and why Sting set this match up. The match is spent teasing the idea that Harper and Rowan will interfere on Bray’s behalf but it doesn’t happen, even when we get a ref bump. Ryback wins clean, pinning Bray with Shellshock in fourteen minutes. Bray looks angry and we get one more tease that the Wyatts will turn on Ryback but they don’t. Bray even raises Ryback’s hand at the end (while Harper and Rowan move around suspiciously for one final tease of an attack but it never comes). The announcers are all completely shocked at this lack of turn of events.

We go backstage to the League of Nations cutting a promo. Lefort puts over Rusev’s IC Title win and says that Wade Barrett will have similar success in the WWE Title match. Adrian Neville charges into the screen from the side and attacks Lefort but the rest of the League quickly jump in and beat Neville down.

IF THE DUDLEYS LOSE THEY MUST RETIRE: The Dudley Boyz vs. The Colons (w/Rosa Mendes)-
The Dudleys win clean in nineteen minutes with the 3-D, despite the many dirty tricks Rosa and The Colons try to throw at them.

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH: Dolph Ziggler(c) (w/Paul Heyman) vs. Mark Henry (w/Big E. Langston)-
The story of the match is Dolph using his speed to employ a hit-and-run offense and staying out of Mark’s grasp. When Mark finally does grab Dolph he goes on offense for a while until Dolph manages to roll out of the ring. Mark follows Dolph and keeps running away, trying to trick Mark into getting counted out by jumping back in at nine but Mark just manages to make it back into the ring. Unfortunately Dolph gets to his feet quicker than Mark and stomps away at Mark while he is on the ground. Dolph locks in the sleeper hold but Mark gets to his feet. He tries to squash Dolph against the turnbuckles but Dolph holds every time and Mark eventually passes out to give Dolph the win in fourteen minutes.

WWE TITLE MATCH: Antonio Cesaro(c) vs. Wade Barrett (w/the League of Nations)-
Wade wins clean with the Barrett Barrage to become your new WWE Champion. I’d give this just enough time to be a respectable length for a WWE Title match without risking too much damage to Cesaro’s shoulder, which he will now take time off to get surgery on (about 13:00). We can cover for the shortness of the match by putting over once again that Wade’s Barrett Barrage can knock someone out at any time.

30 MINUTE IRONWOMAN MATCH FOR THE WWE DIVAS TITLE: Paige(c) vs. Ashley Flair-
The story of the match focuses on submissions and mat-wrestling: a true 30 minute “WrestleWar.” The first fall comes at about twenty-two minutes when Paige makes Ashley tap to the Stretch Muffler (JBL saves face for Ashley by suggesting that she tapped to preserve herself for the remaining eight minutes). Ashley ties it up a few minutes later with the Figure Eight. Ashley keeps working on the leg and going for the Figure Eight, and around the twenty-seven minute mark Paige counters one by reversing it into an inside cradle to go up 2-1. The remaining few minutes are all Ashley on offense trying to tie it up. Paige kicks out of Bow to the Queen twice. As we enter the last minute, Ashley gets progressively more desperate, she rips of the turnbuckle pad and tries to ram Paige’s head into it but Paige avoids it. She tries to use the ropes for illegal leverage on a roll-up but Paige kicks out of that as well. Ashley manages to hit Bow to the Queen with about seven seconds left and goes for the cover but Paige kicks out in a super-close nearfall with just two seconds left on the clock and time expires.



POST-SHOW:
JoJo tries to get a reaction interview with Ashley but she ignores her, grabs her bags and walks to her car, not even changing out of her gear.

Kalisto joins the panel to talk about his match when Paul Heyman shows up, puts Kalisto over HUGE, and the offers to make him his next Paul Heyman Guy. Kalisto is stunned at this offer and has no response, so Paul tells him to take some time to think about it before getting back to him.
