Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal
As far as surprise entrances, I predict a Hogan return (maybe give him one elimination with Curt Hawkins), Shinsuke Nakamura debut, and Finn Balor return.
During the match, I'd have everyone gang up on Braun Strowman after he puts his hands on Hogan, throw him over the second rope, and have a few superstars (Sami Zayn, Shinsuke, Balor, and maybe Luke Harper?) put him through two announce tables ringside.
Then, since this match will feature multiple superstars, for the first 6-10 minutes I'd focus on laying the foundation for future feuds. Eliminations are the most obvious way to do this, but I'd also have some encounters in the match that will play a part in a feud along the road. Maybe an injury angle to a babyface caused by a heel or unintentional contact from one babyface to another prompting a heel turn. I'd also begin Shinsuke's first feud with Finn Balor (who would later turn heel) after the two eliminate each other.
When Strowman gets involved, he takes this whole match by the throat and makes it his bitch. He eliminates all (ALL, starting with Hogan) remaining superstars in the ring (I'd have at least 10, preferably Hogan, Mojo Rawley, Apollo Crews, Big Show, Shaq, Usos, Mark Henry, Fandango or Tyler Breeze, and Sami Zayn. I'd definitely have Zayn put up a fight against Strowman.) After his defeat to Roman, Strowman is going to need this.
Ok, so maybe this was more of a "How I would book this match" type of thing. Bottom line, Strowman dominates.
Alexa Bliss vs Carmella vs Natalya vs Mickie James vs Becky Lynch vs other TBA
Eva Marie. No, she won't win, but I hope she returns here in this match and stay out of harms way until she sees an opportunity calling her name. The opportunity, of course, backfires on her. Bottom line, WE NEED EVA MARIE IN THIS MATCH. As far as winner goes, if Naomi returns, the title goes back to her. If she doesn't, maybe a Mickie James run with the gold? As far as past divas returning, if Kelly Kelly just has to be involved, so be it. She doesn't win, though. I also wouldn't mind Tamina, Victoria, Lita, and maybe Melina getting added to this match.
Neville vs Austin Aries
While Neville has been phenomenal as a heel, Austin Aries has been great since he debuted on commentary. I predict Aries wins. Considering the competitors in this match, you know this match will be excellent. Just, please, no purple ropes.
John Cena and Nikki Bella vs The Miz and Maryse
If Cena proposes to Nikki, then I hope Maryse eats the pin to protect Miz and have the proposal take place after the match. They can use ring rust as an excuse afterwards, since this is Maryse's first match in 6 years. The main thing here is to protect the Miz at all costs.
Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson vs Enzo & Cass vs Cesaro & Sheamus
Cass gets the titles after Enzo nails Sheamus, who's up the ladder with Cass, in the nuts with a ladder. Cesaro and Cass would lay out Gallows & Anderson before Cass blind-sides Cesaro outside of the ring. Cass will climb up when he spots Sheamus at the top of the ladder and Enzo will enter the ring with a ladder and take Sheamus's chances of having kids in the future away from him. Yes, this would spark a heel turn for E&C.
Dean Ambrose vs Baron Corbin
RENEE YOUNG ON A FORKLIFT MATCH! Ok, just kidding. I predict a Baron Corbin win for this match, and then move forward by never hearing him blab pre-written dialogue again. Seriously. He's better without it.
I'd also love to see Ambrose attempt some crazy stunt, maybe a flying elbow off a forklift into an End of Days, and ultimately have that costing him the match.
Chris Jericho vs Kevin Owens
A beautiful friendship, ruined by a man's (who's name involves three Hs) selfish desire to control the WWE at the palm of his hands. He brainwashes a fellow wrestler into igniting a flame under his best friendship's ass and creating ashes beneath a gift's feet.
Ok, so it was a fake friendship. We've all dealt with those. Therefore, it wasn't all that beautiful. Anyway, Owens wins clean.
Shane McMahon vs AJ Styles
Obviously Shane's going to do a crazy-ass stunt. I see him connecting but doing an injury angle. When AJ recovers, he attacks Shane abid ref's orders and wins the match in heel fashion. This would give Daniel Bryan ore reasons to trade him to RAW in the 2017 draft.
Bayley vs Charlotte vs Sasha Banks vs Nia Jax
I predict a Sasha win after she rolls Bayley up and uses the tights to her advantage. She'll officially turn heel the night after on RAW.
Seth Rollins vs Triple H
You know Triple H is going to focus on the injured knee in this match. Rollins will rise against the odds and go out as the victor. I also wouldn't mind seeing him use the Curb Stomp, but I like the idea of Seth pinning HHH with his own move.
Roman Reigns vs The Undertaker
If Roman Reigns wins, he SHOULD NOT remain a babyface. We all know Reigns is going to win. I'd have Undertaker's health play a role in this match and have Reigns take advantage of that. Have no sympathy what-so-ever, and the next night on RAW, have him brag about it.
Randy Orton vs Bray Wyatt
I definitely do not see Sister Abigail coming out to help Bray. That won't happen simply because they've said a thousand times during this feud that she's dead. She's buried. And cremated. She'll never debut.
Anyway, I see Wyatt using his mind games to beat the Arsonist and lead the army of sheep masks through the darkness as WWE Champion.
Brock Lesnar vs Goldberg
Brock takes 'berg to Suplex City. Then he activates an F5 and wins. The end.
Paul "Triple H" Levesque, the Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events & Creative of WWE and founder of WWE's developmental territory NXT, has revealed in a press conference today that the NXT Takeover: Dallas special is really just one big April Fools joke.
"I think we really got them," Levesque said, referring to the die-hard NXT fans. "I can't wait to see their reaction when they turn on the WWE Network, which is free for new subscribers and only $9.99 afterwards, to watch the NXT special and find out there isn't one."
Levesque revealed that in place of the made up special, WWE will run a two hour special episode of the "popular hit show" Total Divas instead.
"It's gonna be great. Nikki Bella (who probably won't be wearing a bra) will ask John Cena about kids and marriage (again), Eva Marie will most likely piss somebody off, Nikki and Brie will argue, and I'm sure somebody will go shopping. It'll be a must-watch!" Levesque said.
The special airs at 10e/7p tonight exclusively on the WWE Network.
Happy April Fools Day!
The following video was sent to us from 'Anonymous'. We assume the figure in the video is current Intercontinental Champion Kage judging by the figure's voice and the way he talks, but we're not exactly positive due to the dark environment. Judge for yourself:
"Forgotten. Abandoned. Betrayed. They held me down, prevented me from getting up. They belittled me, threatened to execute me if I tried to make a movement. They yelled at me, they screamed at me, garbage that they forced down my throat! They stripped me of my dignity. Told me that if I wanted to survive, I had to do everything they said. I did so... but not for long. I grew tired, so tired that I forced myself to escape. Escape from the mental and emotional Hell that they exposed me to! But something ticked inside my head... something that reminded me that I didn't want to leave. I wanted to stay there and watch them suffer! That's when I decided my destiny. I gathered peers and we planned a revolution that would knock the predators to their knees in chains! It felt great... it felt great to finally be the executor... while the predators became the prey. We are the wolves of a new dawn. Fear us." *Video then goes to static*
Tyson Kidd and Cesaro w/Natalya (c) vs Usos vs New Day vs Los Matadores for the Tag Team Championships
I wouldn't be surprised if Usos win, but let's be honest here: Do any of us REALLY want to see the Usos get the titles back? They just lost them a couple months ago, and their title reign wasn't the greatest. They've also gotten a bit stale. (Heel turn, please) Then again, it's WWE. For the other two teams, I hope to God they don't win. What have the New Day done since debuting? Nothing. Except sing and dance their way to the title picture. Los Matadores? The two talented Puerto Rican wrestlers who fell victims to Vince's bad character ideas? Winning the Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania?! Unless they revert back to Primo & Epico overnight, I honestly don't want them winning. Now how about Tyson and Cesaro? They're the current champions, they're entertaining, and they're both awesome in the ring. I think Tyson Kidd and Cesaro are going to retain. I hope WWE changes their theme song, though. It's horrible.
Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
This match is kind of hard to predict, but if Sheamus returns at WrestleMania, I hope he gets put in the match. With that said, I think Sheamus is going to return and win this. I wouldn't mind seeing either Damien San/Mizdow or Curtis Axel win, though. #AXELMANIA
Randy Orton vs Seth Rollins
This is a tough one. If Seth Rollins doesn't cash in tomorrow night, I'm going to say Seth Rollins. But if Seth does cash in, I'm going to say Randy. I have no idea if Seth's going to cash in, so whoever wins this match is my prediction. No, that's not cheating.
AJ Lee and Paige vs The Bella Twins
Let me start off by saying who I want to win: AJ Lee and Paige. My prediction, however, is the Bella Twins. I predict AJ and Paige are going to beat the Hell out of each other towards the end of the match, leading to one of the Bellas pinning one of the two (or both). I don't mind seeing AJ and Paige fighting, but I really don't want to see another AJ/Paige feud. Don't get me wrong, I like them both, but their last match wasn't really good for some strange reason.
Bad News Barrett (c) vs R-Truth vs Dean Ambrose vs Luke Harper vs Dolph Ziggler vs Stardust vs Daniel Bryan in a Ladder Match for the Intercontinental Championship
Honestly, I think this match is going to steal the show. Why? Because all seven wrestlers are great (even R-Truth). At first, I thought Dean Ambrose was going to win, but after reading WWE's plans for the championship, I predict Daniel Bryan winning this one. I wouldn't be surprised to see Sheamus cost Bryan the match, though. WWE seems to be high on a Sheamus vs Daniel Bryan match. (Don't ask why)
John Cena vs Rusev (c) for the United States Championship
I really don't want Cena ending Rusev's undefeated streak. A young, future star should end it. But it's WWE. They love giving Cena everything. I predict John Cena winning the United States Championship. *Sigh*
Undertaker vs Bray Wyatt
Two dark figures collide. I actually wouldn't mind seeing Wyatt winning this one, because he needs a win and it would mean 'Taker is 'passing the torch' to him. But I really don't want Undertaker losing. So, with all that said, I'm saying this match will end in a no contest. Would that be disappointing? Maybe, maybe not. But if Wyatt beats Undertaker (who I think will return as the American Badass tomorrow night) to where the ref has to stop the match, then Bray Wyatt becomes a major threat. Imagine what it would do for his career. It would also keep Undertaker at 21-1. This could also lead to the Undertaker vs Sting match that most of us want to see. (I kinda know how, but it's kinda hard to explain.)
Sting vs Triple H
Sting. I think it's obvious. Hopefully WWE goes with the 'If Trips loses, Authority ends' stipulation for this match. It would only make sense.
Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar (c) for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
I wouldn't really mind seeing Roman win this match. Now, before you try hunting me down and killing me, I want to say that I'd mind with Roman winning. Yes, I wouldn't mind Roman winning but I would mind Roman winning. Let me explain - I wouldn't mind HEEL Roman winning, but if FACE Roman wins, I kinda have a problem with it. I predict that towards the end of this match, Paul swerves us all and distracts Brock, allowing Roman Reigns to win. After the match, Paul raises Roman's hand in the ring, officially creating an alliance with Reigns. Now if that doesn't happen, I predict Roman winning then Brock beating the living Hell out of him after the match. After Lesnar leaves, Seth Rollins comes out and cashes in his Money in the Bank briefcase and walks out of the Levi's Stadium WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Or it could be the other way around, with Roman beating Brock up. (If this happens, it could lead to a Roman Reigns vs Seth Rollins vs Dean Ambrose match at SummerSlam) Whatever happens in or after this match, I really hope it's good.
Aaaand... those are my predictions! What are yours? Leave a comment down below and tell me because I desperately need comments.
Monday Night RAW - January 13th, 2014
And we are... live! "Ladies and gentleman, welcome to Monday Night RAW!" Cole welcomes. They talk about tonight's match featuring Kofi Kingston and the Miz. They then talk about the main event, before changing the topic to Triple H. Cole states that Triple H will have ANOTHER big announcement tonight! He says it will have something to do with the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. The announcers then send us to Lilian.
After the first match of the night, we see Triple H in the Authority's office talking to his wife Stephanie McMahon. We then see John Cena storm into the room. "I want another chance!" Cena says. "Hey! Why are you here?! I'm busy doing business with my wife, and I have a big announcement coming up! What's your problem?!" Triple H says, obviously angered with Cena. "Listen, I'm sorry, but I need another chance at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship!" Cena says. "Another chance?" Triple H starts smiling. "You need another chance, Mr. 14 Time World Champion?!" He tells him. "Yes! Please!" Cena pleads. "You've had enough shots! I'm trying to focus on the future, and like it or not, you're not the future. You're the past. The past who has kept the same boring attitude for the last 10 years. Give me a break, Cena! Your time is up, the future's time is now!" Triple H states. Cena looks disappointed. "Please, Tri... Paul!" Cena begs. "Oh, now you're trying to get me to accept using my real name! You know what, Cena? I'm tired of this. You've had a shot last week, you lost. You had hundreds of shots before that, and you lost. I'm tired of the same old, same old. You know what..." He pauses for a second. "...I hereby ban you from future WWE World Heavyweight Championship opportunities!" Triple H dictates. Cena face turns to shock. "You can't..." He begins to say, until interrupted. "Yes, I can. Now get out of my office!" HHH demands. "But..." Cena says, almost speechless. "Get out NOW or get fired!" Triple H yells. Cena looks at him with anger, then storms out of the office. We go to commercial break.
Later in the night, after a commercial break, we see the ring decorated with what appears to be a Championship under a blanket. Right next to this stands the COO Triple H. "Last week I made a series of big announcements. This week, I'm looking to do the same. 2014 is going to be a year where new stars will be created. My goal is to stack the roster up to the roof and make several new stars. But, while I was planning on how I was going to make these new stars, I ran into a few problems. Last year, we unified the two main titles. Well, that unification led to some problems. How are new stars going to shine when the older stars are hogging up the WWE World Heavyweight Championship scene? After stars win and lose the title for a certain number of times, what happens next? Do they disappear into the dark and wait for retirement? The World Championship creates stars, but does it create legends? Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. That's the problem. I want every superstar to become a legend in their own right. That's why you all get to witness me introduce the new 'Legends Championship'!" He says, pulling the blanket off of the title. What he reveals is a big gold belt with the Earth and a huge man standing behind it with a crown on his head, along with a white leather strap. The crowd cheers. "The 'Legends Championship' will be the last step of a superstar's journey. After they win this, their name will shine with past legends. Their name will become immortalized. Every single superstar who holds this title will have a guaranteed spot in the WWE Hall of Fame!" The crowd cheers. "But, getting to this title will NOT be easy. The WWE Hall of Fame is a very important part of WWE. Hell, not just WWE, it's an important part of the whole professional wrestling industry! I'm NOT going to let some kid who arrived on the main roster scene a year ago and has only held two titles get anywhere near this championship. This championship is for people who have held almost every single title in the WWE. People who've made their mark in this company. People who are nearing retirement. People who have been with the company for more than 5 years. I'll decide who gets a chance at this. Nobody else. This championship is under my protection, and if you think you can easily get your hands on it, I'll be sure to rip your hands off and throw them to the unemployment line, along with the rest of your body!" Triple H takes a breath. "At the Royal Rumble, I've placed a Battle Royal on the card." The crowd goes wild! "This Battle Royal will feature superstars who are former World Heavyweight Champions. This Battle Royal will feature superstars who have held more than 3 titles. This Battle Royal will feature superstars who have been here for 5 plus years! This Battle Royal will feature superstars who are in their late 30s, early 40s and nearing retirement! Dammit, this Battle Royal will be for the brand new piece of gold sitting beside me!" The crowd blows the roof to Europe, as Triple H catches his breath. He looks at the new championship. "You know, I would put this championship on myself, but that'd just prove to the internet marks that I have the ego that they claim I have!" He laughs, while the crowd starts booing. "Now, I'm not trying to make this championship more important than the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, because nothing's more bigger than the WWE World Heavyweight Championship! You can become a legend by winning that championship, this Legends Title is just, as I label it, a championship for already-created stars. Something for the older wrestlers to wrestle for, and an easy ticket to the WWE Hall of Fame. Not everyone will win this. You hear me superstars? Not everyone will win this! You WILL NOT touch this championship if you don't have a past WWE World Championship reign! Oh, and did I mention that this championship will only be defended on pay-per-views, that you can get on the WWE Network for just $9.99? Thought I'd point that out." The crowd starts cheering again. Triple H smiles. "It's a new era here in the WWE. An era led by me, and an era that will lead this company into greater success. And that's, best for business." Trips smiles again. He drops the microphone and grabs the new WWE Legends Championship. He then exits to the back. "What an announcement!" JBL says. We crash to commercial break.
When we return from commercial break, we're greeted with a cryptic message that reads, "A new era is coming... led by ME." When we're back to ringside, the announcers seem to be unaware of the message.
Main Event: CM Punk vs Sheamus for a a spot in the Fatal 4 Way at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

Friday Night SmackDown - January 17th, 2014

Winner: Damien Sandow
Bad News Barrett was on commentary for this match. After Damien wins, Barrett gets in the ring and the both of them have a stare-down to end the show.
Monday Night RAW - January 20th, 2014
The announcers welcome us. Before they can talk about tonight's matches, John Cena's theme music hits. Out comes Cena, more angry than a fat kid who got kicked out of McDonalds. He grabs a microphone.
"Last Monday, Triple H banned me from future WWE World Heavyweight Championship shots." He cools himself down. "I'm obviously still angry, but after Triple H's announcement last week, I realized that a fresh opportunity is knocking on my front door. I don't want to waste any time, so I'm gonna get down to the point. Triple H, since you banned me from the World Heavyweight Championship, I want in the Royal Rumble Battle Royal for the new Legends Championship! I'm a 14-time World Champion, a 3-time US Champion, a 4-time Tag Team Champion, I've won the Royal Rumble 2 times, I've won the Money in the Bank, I've even won an award for the best kiss of the year! I've been in this company for 12 years, I DESERVE to be in this Battle Royal!" Cena says. The crowd starts chanting "Let's go Cena, Cena sucks". Cena feeds off the chants. He gets pumped up, then Triple H's theme song plays. He walks out to the stage with a microphone. "Cena..." He begins to talk, but the chants become louder. "Cena, nice tease you had there. Come out here with anger, looking like you're going to explode. Then grab a microphone and suddenly calms down and brings in the stale 'Never Give Up' positive attitude. I've listened to what you said, and you didn't really need to state all that since I'm the COO and I already knew your accomplishments. But, you see, Cena, all those accomplishments and you're missing the biggest ones. When Vince picked you for the face of this company, he expected you to break records. He expected you to break Ric Flair's 16-time Champion record. You haven't done that, and now you're banned from the World Heavyweight Championship scene. Shame, isn't it? When I made my announcement last week, I said that the Legends Championship is under my protection. That means I decide who's going to get a chance for it. Sorry, Cena. You're a huge star, no doubt about it. But you're not at the Legends Championship level, since you haven't beaten Ric Flair's record. Sorry, Mr. 14-time World Champ, but you're sitting backstage during the Royal Rumble pay-per-view." Triple H tells Cena. HHH begins to walk to the back, but he's interrupted by a furious John Cena. "I am the biggest star in this company! If I'm not on Legends Championship level, THAN NOBODY IS! I'VE CARRIED THIS DAMN COMPANY ON MY BACK FOR THE LAST 10-PLUS YEARS! I'VE DONE EVERYTHING I COULD TO HELP THIS COMPANY! I COULD LEAVE THIS COMPANY RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE WITHOUT A PROBLEM, AND I BET YOU HALF OF MY PAYCHECK THAT AFTER I'M GONE THIS COMPANY SUFFERS! TRIPLE H.... YOU PUNK ASS DICTATOR BITCH! GO TO HELL!!!!" Cena slams the microphone on the mat. Triple H looks on laughing. "Oh, you don't know how long I've waited to hear that! Fine, you want a spot in the Battle Royal, you got it. Bring your best, because if you don't win, maybe I'll think twice before giving you another opportunity. Have a nice day, champ." Triple H drops the microphone, smiles, and walks to the back. Cena is seen in the ring on his knees, looking down at the ground in frustration. "Triple H makes me sick!" Cole states. "Oh, get over it, Maggle! If it wasn't for him, you'd be in poverty right now!" JBL responds. The announcers send us to a backstage interview by Renee Young.
Main Event: Alberto Del Rio vs Ryback in a Triple Threat Match for a spot in the Fatal 4 Way at the Royal Rumble ppv for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Winner: Alberto Del Rio
Tuesday Night Main Event - January 21st, 2014
Pyro goes off. We're welcome by Michael Cole and Byron Saxton. They show us a recap of last week's main event - Dean Ambrose vs Sami Zayn for the US Title. Michael Cole then announces that Sami Zayn will take on new Main Event superstar Tyler Breeze in our main event. They then take us to ring announcer Eden.
Towards the end of the show, right before the main event, Sami Zayn comes out. He gets into the ring and asks for a microphone. "Dean Ambrose, we had a great match last week. I gave you all I had, but in the end, you won fairly." He says. The crowd boos a little. Zayn continues, "But what happened after the match wasn't fair. 3 on 1 assault? Really? Dean, to get down to the point, I want another shot at the United States Championship. You can pick the place, time, all of that stuff! I don't care! You said as long as your champion, you own this place. After that attack from you and your buddies, if that's how things are going to be while your champion here, I feel it's my DUTY to end your reign! Last week, I gave you all I had, but I DIDN'T give you my best! I want to fight you, and this time, I'll give you my best! I..." He tries to continue until he gets interrupted by Tyler Breeze's theme music. Zayn breaks a grin and drops the mic. He then gets ready for his match.
Main Event: Sami Zayn vs Tyler Breeze
Awesome match! Match ends when the Shield comes out and attack both Zayn and Breeze. After the attack, Dean grabs a microphone. "You want another shot Sami-boy?! Fine, YOU GOT IT! But just remember - this is MY yard! Whenever I'm in MY yard, I'm an
indestructible fighting hound who tears people's limbs off one by one!!! I don't care who you are, I'M AN INDESTRUCTIBLE MACHINE who destroys everyone in my path!!! BELIEVE THAT, AND BELIEVE IN THE SHIELD!!!!!!!!!" Ambrose slams the mic on the mat aggressively. He then holds up the U.S. Championship. Main Event goes off the air.
Friday Night SmackDown - January 24th, 2014
Michael Cole and JBL are at the commentary booth. They welcome us to SmackDown. They talk about tonight's main event featuring Bad News Barrett and Damien Sandow. They also state that they've received a video package that appears to be from Intercontinental Champion Kage. They announce that they'll show it later in the show. The camera then turns to Lilian, ready to announce the first match.
Later in the night, Triple H is seen in his office messing with his phone. We hear a door shut, and on the screen appears Dolph Ziggler. "I want another chance." He says. Triple H turns around. "Oh. Thought you were Cena. You want another chance? Ok. You want me to contact our rehab facility manager and get you checked in?" Triple H asks. "You know what I mean." Dolph says. Triple H smiles. "Ok, so you're here to tell me that you won't get kicked in the head anymore?" Triple H asks, lacking seriousness. "I want another chance in the Intercontinental Championship Tournament, Hunter!" Dolph says loudly. "Oh, ok. Gotcha." Triple H states. He then turns back around and looks down at his phone again. "So? Do I get it?" Dolph asks. HHH turns back around. "Yeah. sure. You got your tournament match." He says. Dolph smiles. "...against Kane. Next. Now get out of my office." Triple H tells him. He turns back around. Dolph's smile disappears from his face. He leaves.
Kane vs Dolph Ziggler - Winner will advance to the next round of the Intercontinental Championship Tournament
Winner: Dolph Ziggler
After the match, Kane gets up and delivers a huge chokeslam to Ziggler. He then walks to the back smiling. We get a recap from earlier tonight and head to commercial break.
When we return, the camera is on JBL and Cole. "Earlier tonight, we said that we received a video package from what appears to be from Kage. Right now, we would like to take you to that package." Cole says. "Boy, I'm excited and nervous for this one!" JBL says smiling. The package shows up on the screen. First, we see static. Then, we get an image that appears to be the Intercontinental Championship... in a cage... surrounded by walls that read 'Escape' and 'New Era' in red paint. We go back to static. In the static, you're able to see a black graphic that says 'Only the chosen shall survive.' The package ends and Cole and JBL appears creeped out on the screen. "What... the hell... was that?" JBL asks. "Chilling, and very mysterious. Wonder what it means?" Cole asks. "I wonder the same." JBL responds. Cole shivers and then switches gears to the main event... that'll happen next!
Main Event: Bad News Barrett vs Damien Sandow - Winner will advance to the next round of the Intercontinental Championship Tournament
Back and forth action. Very good match. In the end, BNB stands tall after hitting a Bullhammer for the 3 count.
Winner: Bad News Barrett
Royal Rumble - January 26th, 2014
Battle Royal for the brand new Legends Championship
AND... RVD gets thrown over the top rope and eliminated! There are only two competitors left - John Cena and Christian. They start brawling back and forth. Christian gets tangled in the ropes. Cena takes advantage of it and tries to throw him out of the ring, but before he can lift him, pyro interrupts him. Out comes Kane, but not from the entrance way. He enters from the crowd. He sneaks up on a fired up John Cena. Kane grabs him and goes for the throw over the top rope, but Cena capitalizes and throws Kane out instead. Christian takes advantage and throws Cena over the top rope, but Cena's feet don't touch the floor. Cena hangs from the top rope, with Christian trying to claw his hands open. Kane gets up from the mat and delivers a huge punch to the jaw of John Cena. Christian sees the opportunity and goes for it. He runs the other sides' ropes and dodges at Cena. Cena falls to the floor. It's over.
Winner, and first ever Legends Champion: Christian
Christian celebrates in the ring while Kane walks to the entrance stage smiling. John Cena gets up from the mat and looks to the ring. He sees Christian holding up the Legends Championship. Cena falls to the ground upset. After a few minutes, Cena gets up and walks to the stage with his hands on his hips, obviously disappointed. On the stage, he starts kicking the titantron. He calms down a little, and turns his head back to the ring. He then turns backs around and walks to the back, still disappointed and angry.
Main Event: Randy Orton (c) vs Daniel Bryan vs CM Punk vs Alberto Del Rio in a Fatal 4 Way for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Great Fatal 4 Way. Towards the end of the match, Daniel Bryan throws Randy Orton out of the ring, while CM Punk throws Alberto Del Rio out of the ring. Daniel and Punk then square off. They go at each other, kicks after kicks. During their battle, Orton spears Alberto through the barricade. Alberto is out. Orton gets up and runs into the ring. He attacks Daniel and throws him out the ring. Punk then goes for the attack. Punches after punches after punches. Soon, Orton gets the momentum and throws Punk in the corner. He then pounds away on Punk until Punk's sitting in the corner hurt. Orton then turns around and runs to the other corner, but before he can make it, Bryan gets back into the ring and delivers a Busaiku Knee Kick. Bryan goes for the cover, but before can make it, CM Punk gets up from the corner and grabs him. Punk throws him out of the ring and runs to Orton for the cover. 1... 2... 3...
Winner, and new WWE World Heavyweight Champion: CM Punk
Bryan looks on, disappointed, as CM Punk celebrates in the ring. He then walks to the back upset. Meanwhile, Orton rolls out of the ring and realizes he lost. He's surprised. He then gets up. All of a sudden, he snaps. He starts throwing things ringside. He pushes Michael Cole to the floor. He starts destroying the barricade. He spots Del Rio. Del Rio is on his hands and knees, trying to get up. Orton backs up a little and gets into position. He runs towards Del Rio and BAM! Delivers a Punt Kick. Medical personnel run to Rio's aid. Orton walks away from the scene, still angry. He kicks the steel stairs on his way to the stage. When he exits, the camera turns on Del Rio. We then see a stretcher rolling down the ramp. The camera then switches to backstage, where we see a pissed off Randy Orton walking to his car. He hops in the car and speeds off. We go off air.
To be continued...
Monday Night RAW - January 6th, 2014
We're back from commercial break and we're greeted from JBL, Jerry "The King" Lawler, and Michael Cole. They talk about a new team that claims to have served our great country. They talked about how Kofi Kingston has taken them under his wing into the world of professional wrestling. They then talk about another team, who claims to have worked for the CIA and has been guided by the Miz. Both teams are going to make their debut in six man action, as revealed by Triple H earlier in the night. It's going to be the team of Jacob Briggs and Daniel Burton, who have named themselves "The Dangerous Americans", and Kofi Kingston against the team of Benjamin Garrett and Austin Devlin, who has named their team "Operation: Entertainment", and the Miz. They say that match is next. They go to a video package of the two teams, then crash to break.
Kofi Kingston and "The Dangerous Americans" vs The Miz and "Operation: Entertainment"
Kofi Kingston and his team come out to the ring first. As they get in the ring, the Miz's theme music hits. It seems as if the Miz and Kofi Kingston will start off the match. The referee checks them both, then calls for the bell. They square off. First three minutes are on and off momentum. The Miz soon gets the momentum with a huge clothesline. The Miz quickly fires punches to the skull of a laid out Kofi Kingston. He runs to the ropes and hits a few elbow drops, then quickly goes for the Figure Four. Big mistake. Kofi blocks it and kicks Miz away. Kofi then gets up and delivers a drop kick. Kofi gains momentum. Miz runs toward him, looking to deliver another clothesline, but Kofi ducks. Kofi fires punches to the skull of the Miz and then hits a neck breaker. Kofi has the Miz in place, and runs to the ropes for a Boom Drop. He delivers and calls for Trouble in Paradise. Miz gets up and turns around. Kofi goes for Trouble in Paradise but misses. The Miz then drills Kofi with a big boot. Both men are down. They both crawl to their corners. When they go for the tag, their partners move their hands quickly out of the way so they both miss the tag. Both teams then jump off the apron. "What?!" King says. "What the heck is going on?!" Cole says, stunned. Both teams then surround the ring. All together, they run into the ring and attack Kofi and the Miz. Dangerous Americans attack Kofi, and Op: Entertainment goes for the Miz. They attack with punches. Jacob Briggs delivers a huge, impressive sitout spinebuster to Kofi Kingston. That's followed by a brainbuster from Benjamin Garrett to the Miz. When they're finished, both teams stand together one by one looking out at the crowd with blank expressions on their faces. "Are these guys an alliance?! What in the Hell did we just witness?!" Cole says shocked.
Friday Night SmackDown - January 10th, 2014
"Welcome back to Friday Night SmackDown!" JBL says, alongside Michael Cole. SmackDown starts off with Triple H announcing some big news. Then we hit commercial break, and when we come back, we're greeted with a recap from the past RAW showing the Dangerous Americans turning on Kofi and Operation: Entertainment turning on the Miz. After the recap is over, Kofi Kingston's theme hits. Kofi walks down to the ring, not very happy. He hops into the ring and asks for a microphone.
"Dangerous Americans, I want an explanation! I took you under my wing! I mentored you! If it wasn't for me, you wouldn't be in the WWE right now! I want an explanation, and I'm not leaving this ring until I get one!"
Kofi waits in the middle of the ring, waiting for the Dangerous Americans to make their entrance. Instead, he gets the Miz. Miz walks down to the ring, hops in, and asks for a microphone.
"Kofi, Kofi... you're not the only one who got stabbed in the back! I deserve an explanation too! Operation: Entertainment, get your asses out here!" Miz demands.
"Woah, woah, woah... Miz... what makes you think you deserve an explanation? Don't you know a little about stabbing people in the back? Because I sure felt your stab recently when you turned on me!" Kofi says.
"That's a whole different story, Kofi. We got bigger problems now! Like it or not, I deserve an explanation! You deserve an explanation! We both deserve explanations! We're the victims here!" Miz says.
"You're right, and wrong. I helped mentored the Dangerous Americans for several, SEVERAL months! You, you've only been mentoring the Operation goons for A month! The Dangerous Americans were like family to me! Operation: Entertainment to you were just business partners, that you only mentored because Triple H asked you to, and because you wanted a team to compete with me. You're not the victim, you're just a jealous piece of garbage who happened to get himself into the wrong trashcan." Kofi tells him. Miz looks furious. They both drop their mics and get ready to brawl, but before they can do so, the lights go out. A big graphic then appears on the titantron, along with eerie music, stating, "Your time is coming to an end." We then go to commercial break.
Monday Night RAW - January 13th, 2014
The pyro goes off. We're welcomed to the show by 'The Wrestling God' JBL, Michael Cole and Jerry 'The King' Lawler. They start off by saying that since Kofi and Miz didn't get to brawl it out last Friday, they'll have a chance to tear each other up tonight. They talk about the Kofi/Miz situation and then switch gears to the main event.
Later in the night, towards the end of the Kofi Kingston vs the Miz battle, we experience a power outage.
"What the hell!" JBL says. "Who turned the power off!" Michael says. A few seconds later, the lights come back on. "What the hell was that for?!" Cole asks. "Look in the ring!" the King says shockingly. In the ring, Kofi and Miz lay defensively on their back, side by side, out-cold. That's not all, though. On top of them lays an American flag. When the camera man gets a better view of the flag, we witness the words 'It's over' painted across the red, white and blue banner. "What a sign of disrespect!" states Cole, as we head into commercial break.
Friday Night SmackDown - January 17th, 2014
We're back from commercial break. We're in the locker room, where Kofi is spotted on his phone in his street clothes. The Miz then walks in. Kofi gets up.
"Why are you here?!" Kofi asks.
"Listen, I'm not here to start a fight or anything. It was them. I know it was them. Why else would an AMERICAN flag be laying on top of us?!" Miz says.
"I know it was them." Kofi states.
"Well, do you know that this isn't about us anymore? They disrespected America last Monday. As a citizen, I'm not going to take that lightly. Now I know you're from West Africa, but you moved to America. You're an American citizen now! The Dangerous Americans and Op: Entertainment disrespected YOUR country. Are you just going to sit here and take that?!" The Miz tells Kofi.
"Get to your point, Miz." Kofi tells him.
"My point is that we need to put our differences aside, form a SHORT alliance, and take out the DA and OE! Not just for us, but for AMERICA! For the country we happily live in and respect! After we're finished, we can go back to ripping each other apart. Deal?" Miz says, holding out his hand.
"Short alliance?" Kofi asks.
"Short alliance." Miz says.
"For America?" Kofi asks.
"For America. Deal?" Miz tells him.
"Deal." Kofi says, while shaking the Miz's hand. We then go to ringside.
Monday Night RAW - January 20th, 2014
We're back from commercial. In the ring, the Primetime Players are set for action. The Miz's theme music hits, and out comes Miz. He comes out to the stage and waits for Kofi. Kofi's music hits and he enters. They walk to the ring together. When they enter the ring, the referee calls for the bell.
The Primetime Players vs Kofi Kingston and the Miz
This match is pretty much a test for Kofi and Miz, to test their tag team skills. In the end, Kofi hits Trouble in Paradise, following a Skull Crushing Finale by Miz for the win. Great match between the two teams.
Winner: Kofi Kingston and The Miz
After the match, the Miz grabs a microphone.
"Dangerous Americans. Operation: Entertainment. We have a challenge for you. We are challenging you to a handicap match at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. We're done with your crap! It's time we put an end to it, for us and the name of America!" He says. He drops the mic and they both exit the ring, with the crowd cheering. "Are they nuts?! A 4 on 2 handicap match?!" Cole says, shocked. "No one said they were bright." JBL says. We then go to a backstage segment with the Authority.
Friday Night SmackDown - January 24th, 2014
The commercial break ends. JBL and Michael Cole are on commentary. In the ring, La Pandilla (Hunico and Camacho) stand in their corner, ready for a fight. The Miz's theme hits, and the Miz makes his entrance. Kofi Kingston follows. They enter the ring and the bell rings.
The Miz and Kofi Kingston vs La Pandilla
Great match. In the end, the Miz goes for Skull Crushing Finale, but before he can hit it, the lights go out. "Oh no, not this again." Cole says. The lights come back on. In the ring, Kofi and Miz are piled on top of each other. Standing above them are the Dangerous Americans and Operation: Entertainment. Jacob Briggs, Dangerous Americans member, has a microphone.
"We accept!" He says, with an eerie laugh. "These idiots have no idea what they're getting themselves into." JBL says. "Dangerous Americans and Op: Entertainment?!" Cole asks. "No! Kofi and Miz, you nipwit!" JBL says, bitterly. We go to recap from the previous week.
Royal Rumble - January 26th, 2014
The Miz and Kofi Kingston vs The Dangerous Americans and Operation: Entertainment in a 4 on 2 Handicap Match
Great match. The Miz and Kofi go through Hell, but manage to stay through. In the end, Kofi goes for a hot tag, but Operation: Entertainment and Daniel Burton pull Miz off the apron and beat the hell out of him. Kofi barely gets up and looks on. He then turns around, only to get knocked down again with a huge spear from Jacob Briggs. All of a sudden, the lights go out. "What the..." Cole says. "Why did the lights go out?! The two teams are already out here!" JBL says. The lights come back on, and Operation: Entertainment and Daniel Burton are back in the ring, with Briggs, but they aren't alone. The man in the middle of the two teams is what leaves the announcers in shock. "It's... it's..." Cole starts to say. "Kage!" JBL finishes. And it is. The match ends with Operation: Entertainment, the Dangerous Americans and Kage, the Intercontinental Champion, standing above a hurt Kofi Kingston posing, hinting at an alliance.
To be continued...
Monday Night RAW - January 6th, 2014
The pyro goes off. We're welcomed to the show by Michael Cole, JBL, and Jerry Lawler. The Authority's theme music then hits. Out comes Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. They walk down the ramp to a crowd of boos. When they get into the ring, Triple H asks for a microphone.
"Ladies and gentleman, Happy New Year." He says. The crowd cheers. "2013 was a great year for WWE. I, along with several NXT talent, introduced the Performance Center down in Orlando, Florida." He says, as the crowd cheers some more. "We were able to get the legendary Bruno Sammartino to accept an induction into the WWE Hall of Fame." He states, as the crowd cheers even more. "And we finally crowned a new face of the WWE." He says, as the cheers quickly turn into boos. Triple H smiles and continues. "2013 had some great moments, some that we'll never forget. But that was the past. Let's talk about the future. Let's talk about 2014. You see, I'm a 'future' guy. The future interests me, and believe it or not, WWE already has a future. It's called 'NXT'." The cheers come back. "NXT is WWE's training ground. NXT is the home of the future stars of wrestling. Ladies and gentleman, NXT is WWE's 2014!" The cheers grow even louder! "Tonight, you'll be seeing several NXT stars make their main roster debut. Those stars include Adrian Neville." Crowd cheers. "Sami Zayn." Crowd cheers. "The Ascension." Crowd boos. "I take it most of you watch NXT, right?" Triple H says, smiling. The crowd goes wild. "Others include Jacob Briggs and Daniel Burton of the Dangerous Americans, who might I add have been mentored by Kofi Kingston." Crowd cheers. "And Benjamin Garrett and Austin Devlin of Operation: Entertainment, who have been mentored for the last month by the Miz." Crowd boos. "Both teams will team up with their mentor tonight in 6 man tag team action." Crowd cheers again. "Expect to see more NXT stars debuting in the next few months. Shifting gears, I want to talk about the Royal Rumble. At the Royal Rumble, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship will be up for grabs in a Fatal 4 Way. The contenders will be the winners of 3 different matches that'll take place over the next 3 weeks, starting tonight." He says. "Tonight, Randy Orton's TLC opponent John Cena will take on Randy's Survivor Series opponent Big Show... and Randy's Hell In A Cell opponent Daniel Bryan in a Triple Threat match!" The crowd explodes with YESes. "That's tonight's main event, and speaking of main event, tune into Main Event tomorrow night for the biggest Main Event announcement ever! You won't want to miss it." Triple H says. He then sets the microphone down and exits the ring with Stephanie.
Later in the night, Randy Orton storms into the Authority's office upset about the Fatal 4 Way announcement. He says that it's unfair and wants it canceled. Triple H, feeling disrespected, tells Orton to grow a set. HHH then asks him what happened to the viper he used to know. The viper that DDTed his wife and tried to destroy his family. The viper that tried to end his career. The viper that punted a 63 year old man in the head. Triple H tells him that he wants that viper back, and that he needs to find the voices that used to be in his head and shove them back in. Randy Orton does nothing, then leaves. We go to commercial.
Main Event: John Cena vs Big Show vs Daniel Bryan in a Triple Threat Match for a spot in the Fatal 4 Way at the Royal Rumble ppv for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Winner: Daniel Bryan
After the match, Triple H comes out to the stage, clapping and smiling. Daniel Bryan looks on, suspiciously. He then starts a huge YES chant that almost blows the roof off the arena. While the YES chants roar throughout the arena, the camera turns to John Cena, who's sitting outside of the ring on the floor, upset. RAW then goes off air.
Tuesday Night Main Event - January 7th, 2014
We're welcomed by Byron Saxton and Michael Cole. The Authority's theme hits. Triple H comes out to the ring and asks for a microphone. Huge announcement incoming.
"Ladies and gentleman, welcome to Main Event!" He says. The crowd cheers. "You know, ever since Main Event debuted, I've felt that something's missing. I couldn't put my eye on it... until just recently." He says. "Main Event is missing something that'll make the show more special. Main Event is missing something that'll make the show more interesting. Ladies and gentleman, Main Event is missing... a championship." He states. The crowd cheers. "I've contacted Vince and the Board of Directors and they agree with me. So tonight, I'm proud to announce that Main Event is now the official home of the... United States Championship!" The crowd cheers grow. "Wait, wait... that's not all. Starting next week, Main Event will be moving back to Ion Television and will become a two hour show." The crowd explodes with cheers. "Ever since Main Event debuted, people have labled it 'the C show'. I want to change that. I want this show to be an alternative to SmackDown, with RAW being the 'supershow', featuring all talent and championships. Speaking of championships, have you ever noticed how the United States championship has been treated these past several years? It just seems like a watered down version of the Intercontinental Championship. I want to change that, also. Starting tonight, I'm giving the US Championship a new meaning. From this day forward, the United States championship scene will feature nothing but new talent that hasn't been on the roster for at least a year." The crowd continues to cheer. "I want the future generations to earn their way to the top, one step at a time. First step, US title. Second step, Intercontinental title, which might I add will become SmackDown's main title starting Friday night. Third step, World Heavyweight gold. It's a whole new era here in the WWE... an era that I will lead." He states. He then puts the microphone down on the mat and begins to walk out, until the Shield's theme music hits. Triple H walks back to the middle of the ring while the Shield makes their way through the crowd. They hop over the barricade and surround the ring. Triple H picks the microphone back up. "Hey, hey, hey. Remember, you work for ME. Now, Ambrose, I know why you're upset, but if I were you, I would save all of my energy for United States championship match for later tonight." Dean Ambrose looks at Triple H, confused. "Oh, I guess no one told you. Well, let me break the news to you. Tonight, two newcomers will square off against each other in this ring to determine the #1 contender that'll face you, Dean, tonight for the United States Championship. Tonight, Adrian Neville will take on Sami Zayn, winner faces Dean Ambrose in tonight's main event for the United States Championship. Now if I were you, I'd go back to my little hideout and get ready for that match, because remember, it's still a 1 hour show." Triple H stops talking and waits for the Shield to exit. The Shield do so. Triple H then drops the mic and walks to the back peacefully.
Adrian Neville vs Sami Zayn to declare the #1 contender for the United States Championship
Winner: Sami Zayn
Main Event: Dean Ambrose (c) vs Sami Zayn for the United States Championship
Winner: Dean Ambrose
After the match, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns runs into the ring and the three Shield members start attacking Sami Zayn. After a minute of punishment inside the ring, they throw him outside to the mat. Ambrose then grabs a steel chair and starts assaulting Zayn with it, while Rollins and Reigns clear off the announce table. The Shield then grabs Zayn and triple powerbombs him through the table. Ambrose goes for a microphone.
"As long as I'm the United States champion, Main Event belongs to ME! BELIEVE THAT!" Dean then throws the mic on Zayn and poses with Seth and Roman. Main Event goes off the air.
Friday Night SmackDown - January 10th, 2014
We're welcomed by JBL and Michael Cole on commentary. The Authority's theme music hits, and out comes the King of Kings, Triple H. He walks down to the ring. When he makes it inside the ring, he asks for a microphone.
"In case you didn't watch Main Event last Tuesday, I announced that Main Event will become an alternative to SmackDown. I stated that starting next week, Main Event will become a two hour show. I also stated that the United States Championship is now Main Event's main title and will feature new talent that hasn't been on the main roster for at least a year. Why am I telling you all this again? Well, I also announced that the Intercontinental Champion will become SmackDown's main title starting tonight. For the past few years, the Intercontinental Championship has been missing it's meaning. That all changes tonight, because the Intercontinental Championship will go back to its roots and feature mid-card talents who are ready to be polished for the World Heavyweight Championship scene." The crowd cheers. "Now, I know Curtis Axel deserves another rematch, but unfortunately Curtis Axel was injured by the new Intercontinental Champion, Kage. Curtis Axel will get a rematch when he returns, but in the meantime, I am announcing an Intercontinental Championship tournament that'll begin tonight!" The crowd pops. "I'm sure you know how tournaments work so let's just get to the point. Tonight, two former IC Champions will clash. Bad News Barrett will take on Dolph Ziggler in the main event. The winner will advance to the next round of the tournament. It's a new year folks, and it's time to correct our wrongs." Triple H says. He then drops the mic and exits to the back. We go to commercial break.
Main Event: Bad News Barrett vs Dolph Ziggler - Winner will advance to the next round of the Intercontinental Championship Tournament
Winner: Bad News Barrett
To be continued...
Monday Night RAW - December 23rd, 2013
The "Reborn" theme hits. Here comes the intercontinental champion, the son of Mr. Perfect, Curtis Axel! He's ready to compete, and has a microphone in his hand for some reason. He gets into the ring, the music stops, and he starts speaking.
"Ladies and gentleman..." He's cut off to some boos. "Shut up and respect your champion!" Boos only get louder. He continues. "I've been intercontinental champion for quite some time now..." he says. "...why's that? Because I'm simply perfect! Wait, no, I'm better than perfect!" he starts to laugh, then continues speaking. "Since I've held this title, I've only defended twice, which, I'll admit, is unfair." Michael Cole interrupts. "Wow, he actually admitted it! That's surprising." Cole says. Axel continues. "So, here's what I'm going to do. I'm going to defend this title. And I'm going to defend it tonight!" he says. The crowd starts cheering. "...against anyone in the locker room. Now, to make this fair for me, that someone has to be someone who hasn't held any other title in the WWE before. Someone who hasn't main evented before. Someone who's willing to step up to the plate and try to shine." he says. "Where's a ref?" He asks, looking around. A ref then comes out to the ring. "There we go! Ok, I don't have all night. C'mon, I'm waiting. Anyone willing to step up to the plate? Anyone? Come on." He says. Then an unknown theme starts playing. Axel looks confused. An unknown wrestler then walks out to the ring. Axel starts laughing. The unknown wrestler gets into the ring. His music stops. "Who in the blue hell are you?!" Axel asks. He offers him the microphone. The wrestler does nothing. He just stands there with a blank expression, looking at Axel. "Nothing to say? Silence? Let's get this over with! Ref, ring the bell!" Axel says. He drops the microphone, hands the ref the title belt, goes to his corner and the match starts.
Curtis Axel (c) vs Unknown Wrestler for the Intercontinental Championship
Ring, ring! The bell rings. Axel goes towards the unknown wrestler, but before he can take a step closer, a huge spear erupts. The unkown wrestler then picks Axel up and hits an inverted suplex cutter. He pins him. 1... 2... 3... that's it! The match is over. "Ladies and gentlemen, your winner, and NEWWW INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION..." Justin Roberts gets cut off. The unknown wrestler, and new Intercontinental Champion, has a microphone in his hand. "Kage... my name is Kage, the new Intercontinental Champion." The wrestler says. He drops the microphone and holds up the title, no smile or celebration or anything. "This kid is strange." King says. "And impressive." Cole adds.
Friday Night SmackDown - December 27th, 2013
Cole takes us backstage to Renee Young. She wishes everybody a happy holidays and introduces the new Intercontinental Champion, Kage. "Kage, last Monday night on RAW, you defeated Curtis Axel in less than 60 seconds to win the Intercontinental Championship. How does that quick win feel for you?" Renee asks him. Kage doesn't answer. "Ok, how does it feel to be new Intercontinental Champion?" Renee asks. Not a word. Kage just stands there looking down to the ground with a blank expression. "Are you... going to say anything?" Renee asks him politely. Still no word. All of a sudden, Curtis Axel attacks Kage from behind. He punches Kage in the back of the head over and over again. He then grabs a steel chair nearby and hits Kage in the back with it repeatedly. He throws the chair down and says he wants his rematch. And he wants it next. We go to commercial.
Curtis Axel vs Kage (c) in a rematch for the Intercontinental Championship
We come back from commercial. Curtis Axel is already in the ring. Kage's music hits. He comes out, favoring the back of his head. He looks peed off. He runs into the ring and starts attacking Axel. The referee pulls him off. Axel gets up and yells at the ref to ring the bell. He rings it. Axel runs towards Kage. He clotheslines him and starts repeatedly punching Kage over and over again. Kage throws Axel off of him. Axel runs towards Kage again but before he can do anything, Kage quickly delivers a huge chop to the throat. "Oh my God! Axel looks injured! Stop the match ref!!!" Cole says. Kage picks Axel up and hits the inverted suplex cutter for the win. Medical personnel quickly storm to the ring to check on Axel. Kage hops out of the ring, still looking angry. He rips the Intercontinental Championship out of Lilian's hands and walks to the back, still favoring the back of his head. "This kid... might be a force to reckon with..." JBL says.
Monday Night RAW - December 30th, 2013
Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler and JBL are at the commentary booth. Cole advertises tonight's main event. He then tells the Universe about WWE's new rookie, but before he could get to his point, he's interrupted by Kage, who appears from an unknown location on the titantron.
"Last week, I won the Intercontinental Championship in less than 60 seconds. I should be proud of myself, right? Well, I'm not. Why? Simply because I can't be. I can't be because this world and it's current generation won't let me be. You see, in my eyes, this world is a poor excuse for a planet. Why? Because in this world, humans are forced to lock their true selves in an imaginary box just so others can give a damn about them! Just to feel accepted! Well, you know what? I refuse to lock my true self in a box, because my true self is what will bring JUSTICE to this world! It's time for a NEW generation to take over! A generation where people refuse to hide their true personalities! A generation where people don't give a damn what others think about them! A generation where people... refuse to let others take away from them... you see, people have taken away from me more than I can count... it's time that stops. For me to feel proud... it's going to take a whole lot more than a championship belt that has been irrelevant for the past ten years! It's going to take a whole lot more than two victories over a guy who used to go by the name 'McGillicutty'! If you seriously think two victories in less than 60 seconds and a championship title win on the first night is impressive, you haven't seen anything yet! Now that WE have made OUR way to the main WWE roster, all war is going to break loose. FEAR me, and FEAR the leaders of the new generation! THAT'S what's going to make me feel proud! WE are the next huge force... the next huge force that'll knock this company and their present generation down to it's knees and have them kissing the ground we walk upon! If you take us as a joke, we'll make you a joke, and THAT'S a bloody fact!"
Kage throws the camera to the ground and the titantron goes black. The camera then goes back on the commentary booth. The announcers seem confused. "Wow..." Lawler says. "I told you he was going to be a force to reckon with." JBL says. "We... Who's we? Is Kage alone?!" Cole asks. "I have no idea, Cole. That kid is just plain creepy." Lawler responds. "He also said 'fear the leaders of the new generation'. Whoever those leaders are, if they're anything like Kage, you better get ready to fear!" JBL says. The subject then switches and we go to a recap from the previous week.
To be continued...
SummerSlam is officially over! This is definitely #2 on my 2014 best PPVs list, right behind WrestleMania 30. Below are the official match results, my rating for each match and my highlights from each match. Let's get started!
Match #1: Dolph Ziggler vs The Miz (c) for the Intercontinental Championship
Pretty good match. I love how Ziggler kicked out of the Skull Crushing Finale. In the end, Dolph Ziggler hit Zig Zag for the win. Finally, WWE is pushing this guy!
Winner, and new Intercontinental Champion: Dolph Ziggler
Highlights of the match: The superkick Dolph delievered to the Miz right in the moneymaker and Dolph kicking out of the Skull Crushing Finale
Match Rating: 7.5/10

Great match! Some nasty bumps came out of this match, but in the end, Paige hit RamPAIGE for the win.
Winner, and new Divas Champion: Paige
Highlights of the match: AJ ripping out some of Paige's hair and Paige throwing AJ head first into the barricade.
Match Rating: 7.5/10
Match #3: Jack Swagger vs Rusev in a Flag Match
Before the match even started, Rusev attacked Swagger but got caught in the Patriot Lock. Lana tried to call of the match, but the ref refused. Pretty good match. In the end, Rusev won with the Accolade. Swagger DID NOT tap, he fainted and the ref was forced to call for the bell. After the match, Rusev kicked Zeb Colter. JBL's reaction was awesome.
Highlights of the match: Rusev's failing to put the Accolade on Swagger (Rusev did great selling) and Rusev superkicking Zeb Colter after the match.
Match Rating: 7/10
Match #4: Seth Rollins vs Dean Ambrose in a Lumberjack Match
This match was awesome! Best of the night. The lumberjacks couldn't even control these two! They fought in the audience until Corporate Kane came out and ordered the lumberjacks to go after them and throw them back into the ring. In the end, Ambrose hit Rollins's Curb Stomp and went for the pin, but Kane broke it up. Goldust then came in and argued with Kane. War between the lumberjacks then broke loose. While was fighting off the Wyatt Family, Rollins got back into the ring with the briefcase and hit Ambrose in the head with it.
Winner: Seth Rollins
Highlights of the match: Ambrose and Rollins fighting in the audience, Ambrose getting on the turnbuckle and jumping onto the lumberjacks and Seth Rollins and Ambrose delivering Curb Stomp to Rollins.
Match Rating: 9.5/10
Match #5: Chris Jericho vs Bray Wyatt
This match was better than their last. Bray looked dominant as always. In the end, the two go out to the floor and Wyatt hit Jericho with a thumb right to the throat. He hits Sister Abigail into the barricade and throws Jericho back in the ring. Bray gets into the ring and covers Jericho for the three count.
Winner: Bray Wyatt
Highlights of the match: DDT on the Bray's creepy Spider Walk and Sister Abigail into the barricade. A highlight before the match was Jericho's count down returning. I don't know why they got rid of it.
Match Rating: 7.5/10
Match #6: Stephanie McMahon vs Brie Bella
This match was actually pretty good. In the end, Triple H came out and pulled the ref out of the ring (Refs sell everything) while Brie had the YES! Lock on Stephanie. Out comes Nikki. Brie kicks Triple H to the floor and starts doing the YES! taunt and chant. Nikki gets in the ring. Brie follows. Stephanie's trapped. Right when you think Stephanie was going to get beat up, Nikki pulls Steph out of the way and punches Brie. Heel turn! Stephanie covers and the ref counts to 3 (Triple H threwhim back in the ring). Stephanie's still got it!
Winner: Stephanie McMahon
Highlights of the match: Triple H coming out and Nikki's heel turn.
Match Rating: 6.5/10
Match #7: Randy Orton vs Roman Reigns
Decent match. Roman delivered a pretty good Somoan Drop from the top and Randy delivered an awesome RKO while Reigns was going for the flying Clothesline. Still can't believe Reigns kicked out of that. In the end, Orton gets frustrated and goes for the punt. Reigns sweeps Orton's leg and goes for a very epic spear.
Winner: Roman Reigns
Hightlights of the match: Randy Orton nailing a Powerslam on Reigns when Reigns went for a spear, Reigns's Somoan Drop from the top (that rhymed!), Orton's epic RKO to Reigns when Reigns was in the air and Reigns's spear on Orton for the win. (The spear is one of my favorite wrestling moves)
Match Rating: 7/10
Match #8: Brock Lesnar vs John Cena (c) for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Brock dominated this match. I mean DOMINATED. Cena basically got squashed, and SOLD EVERY MOVE. Brock hit the F5 in the first 3 minutes of the match (Cena kicked out at 2) and Brock delivered 16 German Suplexes to Cena during the match. Yes, 16! In the end, Cena had the STF locked in but Brock got out. Brock delivered an F5 to Cena for the win. Pretty good match. Unfortunately, there wasn't any blood, urine or vomit. Oh well.
Winner, and new WWE World Heavyweight Champion: Brock Lesnar
Highlights of the match: Brock hitting F5 in the first 3 minutes of the match, Cena selling every move and Brock Lesnar hitting not 1, not 2, but 16 German Suplexes.
Match Rating: 8/10
Overall rating: 9/10. Very good ppv!
Thanks for reading,
Last night, war broke loose. Last night, WWE ppv Battleground took place in Tampa, Florida. Below are the results, my match ratings and highlights. Enjoy!
Match #1: The Usos (c) vs The Wyatt Family (Erick Rowan and Luke Harper) in a 2 out of 3 Falls match for the Tag Team Championships
I actually missed this match, sadly. So, because I missed it, I can't really give my rating or my highlight. People on my Twitter timeline state that it was an awesome match and the best of the night. I'm really disappointed I missed it, and hopefully I can find it on YouTube, but anyway, the winners of this match were:
Winners: The Usos Retain
Next, we see Seth Rollins backstage talking to Tom Phillips. Rollins talks about his match tonight, until Dean Ambrose attacks him out of nowhere. Officials try to break the two up, until Triple H comes walking to the scene. He pulls Dean Ambrose off of Rollins and told security to throw Ambrose out of the building. This was the start of some epic and entertaining brawls throughout the night between the two. Oh, and their match didn't happen, sadly.
Match #2: Paige vs AJ Lee (c) for the Divas Championship
Pretty good match. I was a little disappointed in this match, but I doubt this was the last time we'll see these two ladies battle. Anyway, Paige dominated most of this match. Towards the end of the match, we saw Paige break out of the Black Widow and AJ kick out of the Paige Turner. We also heard Paige communicate with AJ telling her to end the match, but that's no big deal since we hear Cena communicate all the time. Anyway, AJ hit the Shining Wizard to end the match.
Winner: AJ Lee Retains
Highlights of the match: Paige breaking out of the Black Widow, AJ kicking out of Paige Turner, and Paige throwing AJ into the barricade.
Match Rating: 6/10
Next, we have Randy Orton backstage looking for Kane. Kane shows up behind Orton. Orton apologizes to him for what happened on RAW and says they need to make sure John Cena or Roman Reigns don't leave with the titles. Kane states the winner of the match is standing right here, and walks off.
Match #3: Rusev vs Jack Swagger
Before the match, we saw Lana speaking on the mic about how the United States sucks. Swagger's music then hits and him and Zeb walk out to the ring. Zeb grabs a mic, but before he can speak, Lana slaps Zeb in the face. Rusev and Swagger then go to war. Rusev dominated the first part of the match, until Swagger rolls out of the ring and Zeb hyped him up. Swagger gets back in the ring and attacks Rusev. He then applies the Patriot Lock. Rusev crawls to the bottom rope to break the hold and then falls to the floor. Swagger gets out of the ring and applies the Patriot Lock again out side of the ring. Rusev counters and sends Swagger flying head first into the ring post. Rusev gets back into the ring and wins via count out. After the match, Rusev throws Swagger (who's still knocked out) back into the ring and applies the Camel Clutch. I think this feud isn't over.
Winner: Rusev via Count Out
Highlights of the match: Swagger delivering that clothesline (I thought it was nicely done) and Rusev sending Swagger head first into the ring post.
Match Rating: 7/10
Next, we get a creepy promo from Goldust and Stardust. I actually like the Stardust character, but I'm also hoping we get to see Goldust vs Cody Rhodes at SummerSlam.
Match #4: Seth Rollins vs Dean Ambrose
Like I said above, this match didn't happen. But, instead, we got some really entertaining brawls throughout the night between the two. Anyway, Seth comes out to the ring and demands the referee raises his hand and Justin Roberts declare him the winner via forfeit. The ref and Justin do so. His music starts playing and he celebrates.
Winner: Seth Rollins via Forfeit
He begins to exit, until Dean Ambrose comes running down the ramp and attacks him. I guess all the good security were part of the budget cuts. Silly Vince. Anyways, Ambrose sends Rollins into the barricade and they brawl ringside. Then in the audience. Then back ringside. Officials come out and try to break it up. Security grab Ambrose and drags him through the audience. Ambrose escapes, jumps onto the announce table, jumps onto the Spanish announce tables, and jumps on Rollins. The brawl continues. Officials can't separate them. Triple H then comes out. He pulls Ambrose off. This time, Rollins is the one that attacks. They still can't separate the two. The crowd chants 'Let them fight'. Security has to carry Ambrose out. They're almost successful, until Rollins attacks again. Triple H pulls Rollins out of the brawl and takes him to the entrance. He raises his hand as security carry Ambrose out of the arena. I'm kind of glad they didn't have the match, because this match is SummerSlam material.
Brawl Rating: 10/10
Match #5: Chris Jericho vs Bray Wyatt
This match wasn't awesome, but it was pretty good. During the match, we see Chris Jericho launch onto Bray Wyatt and the rest of the family outside of the ring. We also see Harper and Rowan get sent to the back by the referee. The rest of the match has back and forth action. There's a point in the match where both men were down and Bray got up by doing his spider walk. Creepy as f***. In the end, Jericho hit the Codebreaker out of nowhere for the win. I was actually surprised Jericho won. I'm hope this feud will continue, and we get to see another battle between the two at SummerSlam. If we do get another match, I'm pretty sure Wyatt will go over. A win at SummerSlam would definitely beat a lost at a two year old ppv.
Winner: Chris Jericho
Highlights of the match: Jericho climbing the apron and launching himself onto the whole Wyatt Family outside of the ring, Jericho landing on the camera man, and Wyatt's creepy spider walk.
Match Rating: 6/10
After the match, we see Seth Rollins walking out of the arena with two security personnel. When they get to the parking lot, Seth looks back and tells the security to go away and that he doesn't need them. Big mistake. They go away and Rollins continues to walk to his car. He then gets paranoid and looks around the lot. While his back is turned to his car, the trunk pop open and out comes Dean Ambrose with a weapon. Ambrose runs toward Seth Rollins and swings the weapon at him. He misses and they start brawling. Ambrose sends Rollins flying onto Rollins' car and they start brawling on the car. Rollins pushes Ambrose off, gets in the car and speeds off. He forgets his bag on the lot. Dean Ambrose stand in the lot looking at Rollins' car as Rollins speeds away. Very entertaining brawl.
Brawl Rating: 10/10
Match #6: Battle Royal for the Intercontinental Championship
They participants make their entrances. After Sheamus comes out, Bad News Barrett's theme hits. He comes out and states that the winner's demise will come in a form of a Bullhammer. The bell rings and here we go. The Great Khali is the first one eliminated. Later in the match, Kofi Kingston did his usual 'Holy Crap' moments that he always does in Battle Royals/Royal Rumbles by hanging onto Cesaro's legs and jumping onto Big E's shoulders, who was eliminated just seconds before. Cesaro also ignored elimination by hanging onto Kofi's hair. Ouch. Cesaro finally eliminates Kofi by suplexing him out of the ring. Cesaro then gets eliminated by Heath Slater. Yes, Heath Slater eliminated Cesaro. Slater then takes a brogue kick by Sheamus and out he goes. In the end, Sheamus and Dolph Ziggler are the only ones left in the ring. The Miz is also still part of the match, but is laying on the floor. (He escaped through the bottom rope) Sheamus and Ziggler start brawling. After a couple minutes, Sheamus finally gets eliminated by Ziggler. Ziggler thought he won it, until Miz comes back in and eliminates him.
Winner: The Miz
Highlights of the match: JBL calling R-Truth 'R-Trizzle' while Truth was coming out to the ring, Kofi Kingston ignoring elimination twice, and Cesaro ignoring elimination by hanging onto Kofi's hair.
Match Rating: 8/10
Match #7: Roman Reigns vs Kane vs Randy Orton vs John Cena (c) in a Fatal 4 Way for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Good match. Randy Orton and Kane worked together in the first few minutes of this match. The quickly changed whenever Kane went for the pin and Orton came in and started arguing with him. 'Yes!' chants filled the arena during this argument. Reigns and Cena had a staredown two times during this match, which was interrupted by Kane and Orton both times. Reigns had some pretty good spots in the match. He delivered the big kick to Randy Orton on the announce table, and speared Orton through the barricade. Another great spot in this match was when Kane was going for the superplex on Orton on the turnbuckle and Cena and Reigns came in and delivered a powerbomb to Kane, thus taking out both Kane and Orton. There was also a spot where Cena came in and put an STF on Orton who was already locked in a half-crab by Reigns. In the end, Cena delivered an Attitude Adjustment to Orton on top of Kane. Cena covered Kane and won. What a surprise!m *Sarcasm*
Winner: John Cena
Highlights of the match: Reigns's spear on Orton through the barricade and Cena's STF on Orton who was already in a half crab.
Match Rating: 8/10
