    Raw Re: WWE: A Different Future



    July 3
    rd:

    Phoenix, Arizona

    We start Monday night Raw off with the usual video package when we hear the music of a former Women's champion Sasha Banks hit to boos from the crowd. She is in a quite a bit of pain as she still has some tape around her arm and midsection as she makes her way to the ring. She also noticeably has what looks like a busted up nose after diving face first into the cell 8 nights ago.

    Michael Cole: Welcome to Monday night Raw and we are starting with the show off with the return of Sasha Banks.

    Booker T: Sasha Banks had to take a week off due to the damage from her loss in Hell in a Cell but she will be desperate to get back to the top as soon as possible.

    Corey Graves: Any other woman would still be on the shelf after what she went through in Hell in a cell. Heck look at Bayley. She is still on the shelf after that match.

    We cut to the ring as Sasha has a microphone in her hand as she looks into the crowd with a look of total disdain.

    Sasha Banks: At Vengeance Bayley did not beat me. I beat myself.

    Boos for the Boss as she refuses to give any credit to her former best friend.

    Sasha Banks: And look what happened after the match? Bayley lost the title within minutes. That would not have happened to me if I retained.

    The crowd boo the delusional Sasha Banks but she does not care about what the crowd have to say.

    Sasha Banks: I still have a rematch clause and I want to use it tonight!

    The crowd let out a cheer for the possibility of seeing a Women's title match tonight even if it would be between two of the most hated members of the roster.

    Sasha Banks: So Drake come out here and do your job for once!

    Sasha takes a moment to lean on the ropes as she once again shows her lack of respect for anyone else. About 5 seconds pass before she gets impatient.

    Sasha Banks: Come on Drake you are on the Boss's time.

    And on that note Drake Maverick music hits to a pop from the crowd as he does not look impressed by Sasha Banks's cocky attitude.

    Corey Graves: Looks like we are going to get a Women's title match tonight between two of the top women on this roster. I can't wait.

    Sasha in the ring still has a cocky smirk on her face as she waits for the general manager to join her in the ring.

    Drake Maverick: I would like to remind you that I run this show not you.

    Pop from the crowd as Drake looks to put Sasha in her place. Sasha does not seem to care as she looks off into the crowd.

    Drake Maverick: Oh and your automatic rematch clause. Well sorry but you ain't getting it.

    If looks could kill. Sasha Banks gets in Drake's face as she cannot not believe what she just heard.

    Sasha Banks: I better get my rematch clause or there will be hell to pay!

    Drake Maverick: Are you going to attack me again? Did you think I forgot about that? I still have not had a chance to punish you so I think this is a fitting punishment.

    Sasha Banks: How about I do the same again little man?

    Drake Maverick: Lay one finger on me and the punishment changes to no title shots for the rest of the year.

    This makes Banks think for a moment before she backs up clearly still heated by what Drake has had to say but knows any more violence will cost her the chance to get her title back.

    Drake Maverick: However I am a business man. I will give you a chance to earn a rematch. You will be facing an opponent of my choosing at Summerslam in a number one contender's match.

    Sasha lets out a smirk.

    Sasha Banks: That is fine because I am the best superstar in this whole damn company. Whoever I face I will beat and get my place at the top back!

    Drake Maverick: We will see. However right now since you are out here you have a match next against the first women I find back there.

    Sasha Banks stands in the ring as she drops the microphone ready to face whoever comes out. Drake disappears around the curtain as the lights fade and we see the lights go out. When they come back on we see Naomi light up the entrance ramp whilst Sasha Banks looks on unimpressed.

    Booker T: It is time to feel the glow!

    Michael Cole: This is a big opportunity for Naomi. A win here can put her in the title picture.

    Corey Graves: Beating the boss is no easy feat though Michael.

    We cut to an ad break as Naomi is about half way down the ramp. When we come back from the ad break we see the match has just begun.

    Match 1: Sasha Banks vs Naomi

    Sasha Banks struggles early on due to the damage from the hell in a cell match a couple of weeks ago. Naomi gives a good showing but the Boss is too much for Naomi in the end as she puts away her former team BAD ally with the bank statement forcing her to tap out.

    Winner via submission: Sasha Banks (6:33)

    Sasha Banks poses in the ring celebrating as she shouts to the crowd that she is going to get her title back!

    Michael Cole: A good win for Sasha Banks. We have to wonder who will be Sasha's opponent at Summerslam.

    We cut to the backstage area after that match as we can see Brian Kendrick sat backstage on a bench. He has a bit of a crazed look in his eyes as he looks up towards the camera.

    Brian Kendrick: One thing I was never able to achieve in this company was singles gold. You see I may be the man with a plan but none of them quite came off. However now I have been handed a chance by something I did not plan.

    Kendrick has a crazed almost desperate look into his eyes as he stares into the camera.

    Brian Kendrick: Now thanks to Drake Maverick, next week I get a chance to become Cruiserweight champion. I never got the chance to hold that title in my first stint in the company and I know my time is coming to an end soon.

    Kendrick rises to his feet as she gets his face right into the camera.

    Brian Kendrick: A desperate man will do desperate things and I am a desperate man. I have a chance I did not think was coming but now I intend to take it.

    The camera cuts away as we see Brian Kendrick with an almost crazed glare staring into the camera. We next see Charly Caruso stood backstage ready for an interview.

    Charly Caruso: Would you welcome my guest at this time the World champion Sami Zayn.

    The World champion Sami Zayn walks into shot with a big smile on his face and his usual flat cap and jacket on.

    Charly Caruso: How are you feeling ahead of your World title match this evening?

    Sami Zayn: I am feeling confident. Austin Aries is a great competitor but I am the World champion for a reason. I have overcome legends, friends and former World champions to keep this title. So I feel pretty confident even if I am facing the greatest man who ever lived.

    Charly Caruso: I have another question to ask you not related to your World title match tonight if you don't mind?

    Sami Zayn: If it is about Braun Strowman I will worry about him if he cashes in his money in the bank briefcase. However until he does I am 100% focused on the challengers in front of me. Not a bogeyman lurking in the background.

    Charly Caruso: I was actually going to ask your thoughts on Kevin Owens's attack on Seth Rollins?

    Sami pauses for a moment before responding.

    Sami Zayn: Kevin Owens attacking someone from behind does not shock me. He will do whatever it takes to get ahead. However he is no longer my focus. This title is my focus and I have surpassed my former best friend.

    Sami walks off ending the interview as we cut to an ad break. When we comeback we are looking at the ring as Emma makes her way to the ring. She gets boos from the crowd but she looks focused as she makes her way to the ring.

    Corey Graves: Emma demanded this match last week after blaming the ref for her loss at Summerslam.

    Booker T: They say it ain't cheating if you don't get caught. The problem for Emma is she got caught!

    Charlotte makes her way out next to cheers from the crowd as Charlotte looks to beat Emma again in the Vengeance rematch. Emma trash talks the Queen as she steps between the ropes. Charlotte ignores her as the ref rings the bell and the match is underway.

    Match 2: Emma vs Charlotte

    Both women put on a good performance in this rematch with Emma seeming a lot more focused then she did 8 nights ago. However Charlotte is still the queen of the Women's division for a reason and she is able to put away Emma with natural selection.

    Winner via pinfall: Charlotte (9:01)

    Charlotte celebrates in the ring to a pop from the crowd. Meanwhile Emma when she comes to looks annoyed at having come up short against Charlotte again!

    Michael Cole: And once again Charlotte has defeated Emma.

    Corey Graves: There is no shame in losing to a talent like Charlotte but I don't think Emma will feel that way.

    We see Charlotte celebrating on the top of the ramp as we cut to another ad break. When we come back we can see Ember Moon and Becky Lynch chatting to each other backstage.

    Ember Moon: Thanks for you help last week

    Becky Lynch: Anytime. I would fight the BFF's anywhere. Even on the moon.

    Ember chuckles at the lame joke but the mood quickly changes as Stephanie McMahon walks into the room. Ember has to make sure Becky does not do something she will regret whilst Steph has a smirk on her face.

    Stephanie McMahon: Aw you two are such great friends. You know what I had great idea for a match?

    Ember Moon: Us versus the BFF's once again?

    Stephanie McMahon: Not quite.

    Becky Lynch: Not like you to not repeat matches.

    Stephanie does not look amused by that line.

    Becky Lynch: How about you give me the chance to break your arm?

    Stephanie McMahon: I would not lower myself to your level. I am a business women not an in-ring competitor. No instead later on tonight it will be Ember Moon vs Becky Lynch.

    Both women look annoyed as Stephanie McMahon walks away. The camera focuses on both women looking uneasy at the prospect of fighting each other tonight before we see Noam Dar already stood in the ring awaiting his opponent.

    Michael Cole: Stephanie McMahon once again getting involved in making matches will annoy Drake Maverick.

    Corey Graves: She is a McMahon and they do what they want. Plus it is genius. Divide and conquer.

    As they are talking about that we hear the music for Cody Rhodes as he makes his way to the ring in a very bad mood. The ref rings the bell and this match is underway.

    Match 3: Cody Rhodes vs Noam Dar

    Cody Rhodes shows a lot of aggression controlling the match. Noam Dar shows a lot of fight as he stays in the match just. In the closing stages Cody is laying into Dar in the corner nearly getting DQ'd. The ref tells him off which causes Cody to get into an argument with the ref. As he is arguing Dar recovers allowing him to hit the Nova Roller on Cody Rhodes! Dar makes the cover and picks up the shock win!

    Winner via pinfall: Noam Dar (7:48)

    Noam Dar slides out of the ring as soon as they match is finished having picked up a big win over a multi-time tag team champion and IC champion. In the ring Cody looks furious having lost again.

    Corey Graves: And once again Cody's temper has cost him a match on Monday night Raw.

    Michael Cole: He needs to go to anger management or something.

    Cody in the ring rises to his feet before he starts shouting at the ref.The ref explains his decision to Cody who looks like he is accepting the reasoning. Cody turns around looking like he is going to leave but instead he turns around punching the ref in the face!

    Corey Graves: Well that is going to be a fine!

    Cody is not done there as he drags the poor ref off the mat before he connects with Cross Rhodes! Cody storms up the ramp not even looking back as we cut to an ad break. When we come back from the ad break we hear the music for Kevin Owens hit to boos from the crowd. The heat gets even louder when they see him with the commissioner for Monday Night Raw Stephanie McMahon.

    Michael Cole: Well maybe we are going to get some answers on why Kevin Owens attacked Seth Rollins 8 nights ago.

    Corey Graves: Kevin Owens even back in NXT made a habitat of taking out anyone friend or foe who got in the way of getting to the top.

    Booker T: Kevin Owens is one of the most ruthless people on the roster today and would stab his best friend in the back for a dollar.

    Corey Graves:And that is why he has been so successful in his time in WWE. He does not care about anyone but himself. He is a former NXT and IC champion for a reason.

    Kevin Owens holds the ropes open so Stephanie can get in the ring before he takes a moment to speak.

    Kevin Owens: All I have been hearing on social media is why would you attack Seth Rollins? Why Kevin why? If you people had a family to look after you would understand.

    Boos for the crowd as Kevin Owens once again uses his family to justify his awful behaviour.

    Kevin Owens:I have told you people before that I will do whatever it takes to make my family's life better. In my first night in the company I took out my best friend Sami Zayn and you are surprised I did that to Seth Rollins?

    Owens shakes his head before he carries on.

    Kevin Owens: When I came to Monday night Raw the first thing I saw was my former best friend Sami Zayn with the World title and it made me sick. It should be me in that position. I am the one with a family. Sami is too soft.

    Owens pauses as he says that line as he composes himself getting fairly heated as he speaks.

    Kevin Owens: Actually maybe I had gotten too soft.

    Owens looks to Stephanie McMahon who smirks.

    Kevin Owens: You see Stephanie McMahon was right. She told me I had lost the fire I had in NXT. I walked into NXT and on my first night everyone knew who I was. Within a few months I was NXT champion. On my first night on Raw I beat John Cena!

    Owens looks annoyed as he relives the highs of his career so far and then thinks about where he is right now.

    Kevin Owens: However when Stephanie spoke to me a couple of weeks ago she made me realise I had lost my edge.

    He pauses for a moment as the crowd boo Owens even more for his praise of Stephanie McMahon.

    Kevin Owens: How about you show Stephanie McMahon some respect!

    More boos from the crowd.

    Kevin Owens: So the next week I took out Sheamus a former World champion! And it felt great. So when she asked me for a favour I was more then happy to help.

    He lets out a smile as Stephanie McMahon walks forward with a microphone of her own ready to speak.

    Stephanie McMahon: Seth did you really think the authority would just go away? We always win. And now Kevin Owens will not only help me end your career but get my husband back in power where he belongs.

    Kevin Owens: Seth Rollins I am throwing out a challenge. Me vs you at Summerslam.

    As Kevin Owens says that line the music for the Raw general manager Drake Maverick makes his way out to the ring to a pop from the crowd.

    Drake Maverick: OK I know Stephanie likes to get involved in my show making matches but Owens you do not have the power to make matches on my show. However as long as Seth Rollins agrees next week that match will happen at Summerslam.

    Kevin Owens: And when I beat the man who allowed you to get this job maybe you will do the right thing and resign so HHH can come back?

    Drake smiles as Stephanie McMahon goes to speak.

    Stephanie McMahon: Yes how about it Drake. If Owens wins you resign and HHH will take your place as general manager.

    Kevin Owens: You see HHH was the man who scouted me and had the faith to bring me here. He has a real eye for talent. And he is the only man I trust to run this show.

    Drake Maverick: I ain't playing your games. I refuse to put my job on the line with nothing in return. However Owens since you are out here right now you can face this man who is itching to get a measure of payback after last week for what you did to his friend Sheamus.

    Drake steps to the side as the music for Mustafa Ali! He makes his way to the ring to a good pop from the crowd as he shakes hands with the Raw general manager as Stephanie heads up the ramp. Mustafa Ali sprints down to the ring before flying off the ropes hitting a springboard dropkick stunning Owens. Mustafa Ali unloads on Owens as we cut to an ad break.

    Match 4: Kevin Owens vs Mustafa Ali

    Ali uses his unique offence to try to take down Owens throughout the match. Ali is able to more then hold his own even getting a few near falls. However as the match goes on Owens is able to take control wearing down Ali and showing the kind of ruthless edge he feels he has been missing in recent time. In the end Owens is able to dodge the 054 before hitting the pop-up powerbomb.

    Winner via pinfall: Kevin Owens (12:19)

    Kevin Owens stands in the ring happy to have picked up the win as Mustafa Ali rolls to outside rubbing his back.

    Michael Cole: Credit to Mustafa Ali for running Kevin Owens close tonight.

    Corey Graves: Mustafa Ali is a great competitor in his own right but Owens is on another level and you have to wonder what he will do to Seth Rollins if they meet at Summerslam.

    We cut to a video package after that. It shows a man walking down a road with a guitar over his back. We can see him walking down a different road with a street sign saying “Monday Night Raw” as the package finishes up saying “Walk with Elias”.

    Michael Cole: After we come back from the ad break we will be seeing the debut of the drifter Elias!

    Booker T: I cannot wait to hear the great Elias play.

    Corey Graves: Where are my earbuds?

    We come back from the ad break as we see a spotlight pointed to the ramp as Elias makes his way out to the ring to no music with his guitar on his back and that special microphone he wears around his head. The crowd are unsure how to react as he sits on a stool set up in the ring.

    Elias: Hello my name is Elias. I am here to play a song for you.

    Elias strums the guitar as he gets ready to sing as the crowd cheer.

    Elias: Hey! If you would shut your filthy mouths and silence your mobile devices so I can perform in peace.

    The crowd boo Elias for that line.

    Elias: Oh,Phoenix. Why can't your basketball team rise from the ashes and actually win a NBA title?

    Cheap hit for that dig which makes Elias stop in his tracks.

    Elias: Hey I said shut your filthy mouths!

    More boos from the crowd.

    Elias: Fine you people are not worth playing for.

    Elias gets up off the stool as he walks to the back to boos from the crowd for his antics.

    Corey Graves: Thank god I can take my earbuds out now he is leaving.

    Michael Cole: Well up next after an ad break we will see Shinsuke Nakamura back in action as he takes on the Persian lion Ariya Davari.

    We cut to an ad break and when we come back we see Ariya Davari stood in the ring ready for the match. Shinsuke music hits to a pop from the crowd as he makes his way down to the ring doing his usual theatrics for the crowd as he walks down to the ring.

    Booker T: This guy is in my fav 5. He is called the king of strong style for a reason.

    Corey Graves: Shinsuke proved himself in NXT when he became champion beating people like Finn Balor, Sami Zayn and Samoa Joe.

    Michael Cole: Shinsuke will be looking to get his hand on some gold which he has been unable to do since joining Monday night Raw.

    Shinsuke gets in the ring as Davari looks unimpressed by the antics of Shinsuke. The ref rings the bell and the match is under way!

    Match 5: Shinsuke Nakamura vs Ariya Davari

    This is a very quick match with Davari not getting any offence in on the king of strong style who puts Davari away with the kinshasa!

    Winner via pinfall: Shinsuke Nakamura (1:45)

    Corey Graves: A very impressive and dominant performance from the king of strong style tonight.

    Michael Cole: You are right Corey. That was a very impressive performance by Shinsuke on his return to Monday night Raw.

    As Shinsuke Nakamura celebrates in the ring we cut to the backstage area as we can Cody Rhodes wearing a suit as he looks like he is about to leave the arena when Drake Maverick walks out in front in of him.

    Drake Maverick: Cody Rhodes where do you think you are going?

    Cody turns around looking at Drake as he points to a car in the parking lot.

    Cody Rhodes: I am leaving. I have already had my match tonight and I have better places to be.

    Drake Maverick: What is wrong with you? You attack my refs and then leave before the show is finished.

    Cody Rhodes: The ref cost me the match and put his hands on me!

    Drake Maverick: The ref was doing his job so your pay for this week? Consider it gone! Think about what you have done.

    Drake Maverick leaves as the camera zooms in on Cody's angry face as he punches a wall in a fit of rage. We leave the backstage area to see Mike Rome standing backstage ready for an interview.

    Mike Rome: Would you welcome my gu...

    Aries grabs the microphone from the hands of Mike Rome stopping him mid-sentence.

    Austin Aries:That is no way to introduce the Greatest man who ever lived. You should promote me like the star I am. You need to hype up the greatness that is stood in front of you. Move out of the way.

    Mike Rome shuffles off camera awkwardly as Austin Aries stares into the camera with a microphone in his hand.

    Austin Aries: Tonight I show everyone why I am the greatest man who ever lived. You see Sami Zayn is great but he is not on my level. You see it has taken me years to get to this level and tonight I become World champion.

    Austin Aries walks off clearly confident ahead of his World title match in the main event match tonight as we cut to an ad break. When we come back from the ad break we see Samoa Joe make his way to the ring with the US title around his waist.

    Booker T: Samoa Joe has been damn near unstoppable on Monday night Raw.

    Corey Graves: Samoa Joe is someone who when he speaks you listen.

    Joe stands in the ring as the crowd give him a mixed reaction slightly leaning towards boos as he lifts the US title into the air.

    Samoa Joe: You see this belt. Whilst I am here no one is getting near this belt. Sami Zayn may have gotten lucky against me twice but I corrected the mistake that was Big E's victory over me.

    Joe walks up and down the ring. He takes a moment before he goes to speak.

    Samoa Joe: You see I know I can crush all challengers who dare to face me for this belt. I went to Drake Maverick and he told me next week I will be defending this title against Bad News Barrett.

    This name gets a chant from the crowd which seems to annoy Samoa Joe but he carries on.

    Samoa Joe: You fans can cheer him all you want but the only bad news he will bring is his own defeat next week.

    Before Samoa Joe can carry on talking we hear the music of Bad News Barrett hit to a pop from the crowd. He makes his way to the ring with a swagging confidence.

    Bad News Barrett: Joe I know how good you are but I am afraid I have some bad news for you! Next week that US title will become mine!

    Samoa Joe: Cute. The truth however is you should have stuck to being a gun for hire.

    Barrett does not look impressed by Samoa Joe's comments but Joe looks to carry on.

    Samoa Joe: You see since you have broken away from Aldis you have had as good run but it will come to an end. One thing you have never been able to do is reach the top.

    Barrett looks annoyed at that line as Joe looks to continue.

    Samoa Joe: I guess I have some bad news for you as you never will! And next week I will put you in your place!

    Bad News Barrett looks to lift the microphone to his mouth getting ready to respond when he catches Samoa Joe with a bullhammer dropping him.

    Bad News Barrett:I will have more of that for you next week.

    Barrett drops the microphone as he starts to walk up the ramp. Joe comes to and is seething in the ring.

    Michael Cole: Barrett sending a big message ahead of his US title match next week.

    Corey Graves: I think he has only succeeded in angering Joe.

    Barrett boasts on the top of the entrance ramp whilst Samoa Joe seethes leaning on the ropes as we cut to an ad break. When we come back we hear the music for Ember Moon play as she makes her way to the ring.

    Booker T: It is never good when you are forced to face your friends for no reason.

    Corey Graves: Oh suck it up Booker. They are competitors in the Women's division and Stephanie McMahon is well within her rights to make any match she sees fit.

    Michael Cole: I think Drake Maverick would disagree with you there.

    Becky Lynch makes her way out next to a fairly sizeable pop from the crowd. She looks very focused as she makes her way down to the ring. Once inside both women circle the ring as the ref rings the bell to start the match off.

    Match 6: Ember Moon vs Becky Lynch

    Both women start the match by shaking hands with each other. This annoys Corey on commentary who wants these two to lay into each other. Both women start the match off slowly feeling each other out. However after about 4 minutes the BFF's storm the ring attacking both women forcing the ref to ring the bell calling this match a no contest.

    Winner: No contest (4:10)

    Summer Rae and Carmella drag Becky Lynch under the ropes laying into her whilst on the other side of the ring Tamina lays into Ember Moon. The BFF's beat down the pair laying them out before they met each other at the bottom of the entrance ramp.

    Michael Cole: What was the point of that?

    Corey Graves: The BFF's are sending a message to the rest of the Women's division that they run this show.

    The BFF's stand tall on the entrance ramp as they looks happy with the damage they have done to two of their rivals as we cut to an ad break. When we come back from the ad break we see the BFF's walking through the back.

    Carmella:That was fab-ul-ous.

    Summer Rae: It was. We need to keep showing the women of this division that their place is below us.

    ???: Is that right?

    The camera pans to show that Drake Maverick has walked into shot. The BFF's do not care looking as cocky as ever.

    Summer Rae: Yes Drake it is. No one in this division is on our level.

    Drake Maverick: Well in that case next week you will be defending your title in a triple threat match against the two women you and your friends just attacked.

    All 3 women look furious at what Drake has just told them.

    Summer Rae: But I can lose my title without being pinned?

    Drake Maverick: You should have thought of that before getting involved in that match. Oh and also these two are banned from ringside.

    Carmella: WHAT? You are just a hater.

    Summer and Carmella storm off looking furious as Tamina steps forward standing over Drake Maverick towering over him. She glares at him before she walks off elsewhere as we cut to Charly Caruso who is stood with the Cruiserweight champion Neville.

    Charly Caruso: Neville how do you feel about having to defend your title against the Brian Kendrick next week?

    Neville: He pinned me 1 2 3 so he has every right to have a shot at the throne. However it was only because of Tommaso Ciampa. Ciampa keeps getting involved in my business but I am starting to think he is a coward. You see he has a number one contender's shot to use when he wants but instead of fighting me he keeps ducking me and trying to play stupid mind games with me.

    Charly Caruso: Are you worried about how desperate Brian Kendrick is to become Cruiserweight champion?

    Neville: Listen if you are not desperate to win titles you are in the wrong business. Brian Kendrick is great but he is not on the king's level. He can come up with as many plans as he wants but in the end I will still be the king of the cruiserweights and...

    The king stops dead in his tracks as he sees the psycho killer stood there chewing his gum looking smug as ever.

    Tommaso Ciampa: Heard you were missing me your liege?

    Neville drops the microphone as he gives chase looking to get his hands on Tommaso Ciampa. They run round the corner when Neville gets met with a superkick to the face from The Brian Kendrick. Brian Kendrick bends down as he picks up the Cruiserweight title staring at it almost possessed whilst Ciampa smirks happy to have once again messed with Neville.

    We cut back to the ring as Titus O'Neil is stood in the ring ready for his opponent.

    Corey Graves: Tommaso Ciampa's mind games working on the king once again.

    Booker T: Brian Kendrick is a veteran of the business and Neville will need to keep his focus on Kendrick to keep his title.

    As Booker T finishes that line we hear the music of the Viper Randy Orton. He walks to the ring looking very annoyed as he joins Titus O'Neil in the ring who was smiling until realising who he was about to face. The crowd give Orton a few “You tapped out” chants which pisses him off even more as he slowly gets in the ring.

    Michael Cole: Randy Orton will be looking to get back to winning ways after his loss against Sami Zayn 8 nights ago.

    Corey Graves: I would not want be Titus O'Neil right now.

    The ref rings the bell and the match is under way.

    Match 7: Randy Orton vs Titus O'Neil

    Randy Orton lays into Titus right at the start of the match letting out a lot of his frustration on the more positive in recent times Titus O'Neil. Titus is able to make a short comeback using his power but just as he is getting going, Orton hits him with a RKO outta nowhere for the win.

    Winner via pinfall: Randy Orton (3:20)

    Randy Orton does not waste anytime as he marches to the back still getting quite a few “you tapped out” chants which annoys the viper even more. We cut to an ad break but when we come back the camera focuses on the commentary table.

    Michael Cole: I have just heard from the Raw general manager Drake Maverick that next week the WWE tag team tiles will be on the line as the Revival will take on the Dudley Boyz!

    Booker T: The Dudley Boyz have been 18 time tag team champions and are the most decorated tag team in WWE history.

    Corey Graves: And I don't see them getting to 19 Booker. The Revival are the top team in the WWE today and will look once again prove they are better then the teams of the past.

    As they are speaking Jinder Mahal makes his way to the ring to boos from the crowd. Jinder gets a few boos from the crowd followed by his goons the Bollywood Boyz. Once he is inside Matt Hardy makes his way out followed by his brother Jeff. Jeff has a microphone in hand ready to speak.

    Jeff Hardy: We just heard that the Dudley Boyz will be fighting the Revival next week. Well whoever wins will be....

    Matt Hardy: DELETED!

    Sizeable pop for the broken reference as Jeff looks at his brother before shaking his head.

    Jeff Hardy: Whoever wins we will coming for those titles again and we are not done with the Revival yet!

    Jeff drops the microphone as Matt slides into the ring ready to take on Jinder Mahal as the ref rings the bell starting this encounter off.

    Match 8: Matt Hardy w/Jeff Hardy vs Jinder Mahal w/The Bollywood boyz

    Matt Hardy shows a more odd style in this match. Jinder meanwhile uses the power given to him from his new sizeable frame. The Bollywood Boyz try to get involved in the match but Jeff Hardy is able to keep them from getting involved on the outside fighting the pair off fairly easily by himself. In the ring Matt Hardy picks up the win with the Twist of fate.

    Winner via pinfall: Matt Hardy (6:20)

    Jeff joins his brother in the ring, stopping him from doing the delete taunt. He instead raises his brother's hand as the fan cheer the popular duo.

    Booker T: A good performance by Matt Hardy. Once again showing why the Hardy Boyz have to be considered for another shot at the WWE tag team titles.

    Corey Graves: Why? He won a singles match Booker not a tag team match. Maybe he can go fight for the US title or the World title.

    As Booker and Corey argue over the merits of the Hardy's getting another tag team title shot we can see Baron Corbin walking through the back as he is approached by Mike Rome.

    Mike Rome: Baron Corbin can I ask why you attacked Sandow last week?

    Baron Corbin stops and looks down at Mike with a snarl before he answers.

    Baron Corbin: He stole my victory. I had the number one contender's match won until he tossed me out of the ring. And then he goes on to lose anyway. I would have beaten Samoa Joe and become US champion.

    Mike Rome: I mean it could be argued that Sandow did nothing wrong as it was a multi-man match.

    Baron Corbin glares at Mike Rome before lifting him off his feet scaring him when he gets jumped from behind by Damien Sandow! Sandow starts laying into Baron Corbin with a number of punches looking for revenge after being attacked last week. However before the brawl can go on too long a bunch of security come onto the scene separating them. Drake Maverick walks into shot next not looking very happy.

    Drake Maverick: OK that is enough. Both of you can settle this in the ring next week.

    Drake walks off as the two men stare each other down. We cut back to the ring as the camera focuses on the commentary table.

    Michael Cole: Another big match for a loaded Monday Night Raw next week.

    Corey Graves: Agreed Michael. We will see the Cruiserweight title, Women's title, the US title and the tag team titles on the line.

    Booker T: Shucky ducky quack quack. And we also have the World title being defended next in the main event.

    Michael Cole: Booker T is right and that will be next after the commercial break.

    When we come back from the ad break we hear the music for the challenger Austin Aries play to boos from the crowd. He has a smirk on his face as he walks to the ring wearing a pair of sunglasses.

    Corey Graves: The greatest man who ever lived looks to win the World title a month after joining Monday night Raw.

    Booker T: Samoa Joe was able to win the World title last year shortly after joining Monday night Raw but Aries is facing the man who dethroned Samoa Joe at Wrestlemania, Sami Zayn.

    As they say that we hear the music for the World champion Sami Zayn as he makes his way to the ring to a great pop from the crowd.

    Michael Cole: As you just mentioned Sami Zayn dethroned Samoa Joe at Wrestlemania and has held that title for 92 days now.

    Corey Graves: While that is true, tonight he faces a different challenge. Austin Aries has travelled the world showing us how much of a true great he is.

    Both men get in the ring as the ref rings the bell getting the main event underway.

    Main Event: World title match: Sami Zayn vs Austin Aries

    Sami Zayn starts the match off by offering Austin Aries a handshake but Aries instead of going for it gives Zayn a cheap shot to the gut. This allows Aries to stay in control for the early stages of the encounter. However as the match goes on Sami Zayn is able to fightback.

    Both men show they are closely matched in what is a high paced fight.Austin Aries tries whatever tricks he can think of but he can't put away the champion. As the match comes to a close Aries even hits the brainbuster on Zayn but Sami is able to kick out!

    Aries looks to follow up by locking in the last chancery. Zayn however escapes from the hold. Aries tries to go back on the attack but Zayn hits him with a Blue Thunder bomb for a close 2 count. Sami looks to lift Aries off the mat for the STO into the Koji clutch but Aries sends him into the corner of the ring. Aries charges in but Zayn hits a flatliner onto the turnbuckle! Sami makes his way to the opposite corner of the ring before hitting the Hulleva kick! Sami Zayn makes the cover 1 2 3! Sami Zayn picks up the win and retains his title!

    Winner via pinfall and still World champion: Sami Zayn (17:26)

    Michael Cole: Sami Zayn retains once again!

    Booker T: Another impressive performance from the World champion.

    Corey Graves: Austin Aries pushed the champion to the limit and on another day may have dethroned Sami Zayn.

    Sami Zayn grabs hold of the World title as he raises it to a pop from the crowd happy to have retained once again. Meanwhile Austin Aries rises to his feet looking angry. Sami Zayn like at the start of the match offers a handshake to Austin Aries. Aries teases accepting the handshake but snubs Zayn to boos from the crowd. He storms to the back as Zayn shrugs his shoulders as he goes back to celebrating his victory.

    Michael Cole: Poor sportsmanship from Austin Aries there.

    Corey Graves: Austin Aries has always only cared about one person and that is Austin Aries.

    As they say that line we hear the music for the monster among men Braun Strowman hit to boos from the crowd as he marches to the ring with the Money in the Bank briefcase in hand!

    Booker T: This can't be good.

    Braun climbs over the ropes as Sami gets ready for a fight but gets taken down with a big boot. Braun drops the briefcase onto the mat as he picks up Sami Zayn tossing him around the ring. He lifts Sami Zayn up into the air before hitting a throwing crucifix powerbomb onto the briefcase! Braun signals to the timekeepers area for a microphone.

    Braun Strowman: Sami Zayn at Summerslam I am cashing in my money in the bank briefcase and I am taking your World title. However for now I ain't finished with you yet!

    Braun picks Sami Zayn off the mat before he chokeslams him back first onto the dented briefcase. Braun looks to the World title that Sami Zayn dropped to the mat. He picks it up off the mat as well as grabbing hold of his money in the bank briefcase. He finishes off this visual as he places his foot on Sami Zayn's chest roaring to the crowd.

    Michael Cole: Is this a sign of what is to come in 5 weeks at Summerslam?

    Raw fades to black with the last shot of Braun Strowman the monster among men stood over the underdog from the underground with the World title in one hand and the dented briefcase in the other.

    Re: WWE: A Different Future


    July 4th:

    Phoenix, Arizona

    We start the show off looking at the entrance ramp as the music for AJ Styles hits to a pop from the crowd. AJ however stops on the ramp as he waits for the Club join him. They are lead by the rock and rolla Finn Balor who has his fonz like jacket on as all 4 men start to head to the ring as a group.

    Tom Phillips: Welcome to Smackdown Live!

    Mauro Ranallo: And mama mia we are starting the show off with a bang as The Club are making their way to the ring.

    Bryon Saxton: That is right Mauro. Last week Finn Balor agreed to join forces with his fellow Club members and AJ Styles to help in the war with the Wyatt Family.

    Mauro Ranallo: And it looks like we are about to hear from the real rock and rolla himself as well as the rest of the Club.

    All 4 men stand in the ring as they get chants from the crowd including“Bullet Club” chants from the crowd which makes all 4 men smile.They don't speak yet as all 4 men raise their hands in the air and too sweet each other to a pop from the crowd. AJ Styles steps forward to speak first.

    AJ Styles: Last week the real rock and rolla agreed to join the cause and help us in the fight against the Wyatt Family.

    Pop from the crowd as AJ looks to carry on.

    AJ Styles: I knew how hard it would be with just the Good brothers by my side. But now we have Finn as part of our group this Sunday, the Wyatt family will be defeated!

    AJ walks around the ring as Finn Balor shows off some more enjoying the positive reaction from the crowd.

    AJ Styles: This is the house that AJ Styles built and it is protected!

    AJ passes the microphone to Finn Balor who looks as smug as ever. He still soaks up the reaction from the crowd before he speaks.

    Finn Balor: It is good to see you people finally appreciating a true rock and rolla! However it is time for me to “shoot” from the hip!

    This gets the crowd excited as Finn does a finger gun motion before speaking again.

    Finn Balor: The good brothers are my boys however AJ convinced them to stab me in the back on the way out of Japan. You see I was coming over here and AJ wanted to get to the top. So he got in the ear of the good brothers and they did what they had to look good for their new boss. Now I ain't let that go and I still ain't forgotten what he did. However two weeks ago when the Wyatts laid me out I realised that if I want the Club to take over this show the Wyatts need to be dealt with!

    The good brothers nod behind Balor with Finn carrying on.

    Finn Balor: So this Sunday the Club shows the Wyatt family who truly runs this show.

    All 4 men too sweet each other once again but suddenly the lights go out as the titantron shows Bray Wyatt with his lantern in hand and his family around him.

    Bray Wyatt: Phoenix,Arizona we are here.

    Bray Wyatt blows out the lantern as the light stay out and the fireflies start up in the arena. The Wyatt Family make their way to the ring to boos from the crowd still though they get a few cheers as well.However it quickly turns to all cheers as Dean Ambrose and Paige run out behind the group. Paige goes after Sarah Logan laying into her whilst Ambrose goes for Ziggler. The Club quickly roll out of the ring as they start fighting with the Wyatts and we have a mass brawl on the entrance ramp!

    Mauro Ranallo: It is pandemonium out here as both groups go to war!

    The battle carries on as the music for Shane McMahon hits to a pop from the crowd as he makes his way onto the top of the entrance ramp.

    Shane McMahon: Stop this right now.

    However not much happens as they carry on fighting in and around the arena.

    Shane McMahon: Stop this right now or all of your matches this Sunday will be cancelled.

    This gets all the wrestlers attention bringing the brawl to a stop as Shane breathes a sigh of relief that he was able to stop the chaos.

    Shane McMahon: Now I am going to let the crowd see some of you in action tonight as our main event is Dean Ambrose and Finn Balor vs Kane and Luke Harper!

    The two groups stare each other down with Bray letting out a sick laugh as we cut to an ad break after that hectic start to the show. When we come back from the ad break we see Breezedango, The Miz and Maryse make their way to the ring to boos from the crowd with only Tyler Breeze dressed to compete.

    Tom Phillips: We have out first match of the show next as Tyler Breeze looks to take on Rusev.

    Bryon Saxton: Rusev is going to have a hard time overcoming the numbers at ringside.

    Rusev makes his way out next wearing a brand new t-shirt which says Rusev day on it. He makes his way into the ring looking furious as The Miz taunts him on the outside. This distracts Rusev allowing Breeze to attack him from behind to boos from the crowd. The ref rings the bell starting this match off.

    Match 1: Rusev vs Tyler Breeze w/Fandango, Maryse and The Miz

    Breeze shows he is a very capable competitor throughout this match as he gives Rusev a tough time. However as the match goes on Fandango and The Miz keep getting involved at ringside. It gets so bad that the ref sends both the Miz and Fandango to the back to cheers from the crowd.

    Maryse starts arguing with the ref when a female jumps the barricade attacking her. The camera pans to show it is Lana! Meanwhile in the ring Rusev connects with the Machka kick to the side of Breeze's head. Rusev follows up as he locks in the accolade forcing Breeze to tap out.

    Winner via submission: Rusev (8:35)

    Lana joins her husband in the ring as they share a nice kiss. Meanwhile The Miz and Fandango run down to the ring looking to get their hands on Rusev but he slides out of the ring gaining the upper hand on Mr Money in the Bank.

    Mauro Ranallo: The ravishing Russian is back!

    Bryon Saxton: Major assist has to go to Lana here for taking care of Maryse at ringside and we have to wonder if she will have the same effect at the Great American Bash.

    Rusev and Lana kiss on the ramp one last time before they head to the backstage area. As they backstage we go to Dasha Fuentes who is ready for an interview.

    Dasha Fuentes: Would you please welcome my guest at this time Big Cass?

    Big Cass walks into shot as he towers over the much smaller Dasha Fuentes.

    Dasha Fuentes: Big Cass I wanted to ask how you were finding being a single superstar after the injury of your former tag team partner Enzo Amore?

    Big Cass looks annoyed at the mention of the former WWE superstar before carrying on.

    Big Cass: It is hard to do anything on this show when you keep getting passed up for the next hot thing. I will speak to Shane McMahon as I want a match on the Great American Bash pre-show so I can show the world what I can do, as I am sick of smaller superstars getting ahead of me.

    Big Cass storms off on that note as we can see The New Day walking through the backstage area with Xaiver holding Francesca and Big E with a couple boxes of Booty O's in hand clearly on the way to the ring.

    Bryon Saxton: The New Day are coming to the ring guys!

    Tom Phillips: Yes we will be hearing from the challengers for the World tag team titles at the Great American Bash after these commercial messages.

    We come back from the ad break as the music for the New Day hits to a pop from the crowd as the popular tag team make their way to the ring. Big E gives some of the Booty O's to kids in the front row.

    Mauro Ranallo: The New Day will be looking to repeat their performance from Backlash earlier this year and leave the Great American Bash will all the gold.

    Tom Phillips: That was on Monday Night Raw however and they face a team who have been nearly as dominant as the New Day were in the Raw tag division.

    All 3 men stand in the ring before they get ready to speak.

    Xaiver Woods: In 6 nights time Big E will be holding the IC title for a 2nd time in his career. And we all be 4 time tag team champions of the World

    Kofi steps forward at that moment.

    Kofi Kingston: I mean technically I would be a 7 time tag team champions.

    Xaiver Woods: I meant with us not with your exs.

    Big E steps forward after that looking to speak next.

    Big E: I know I will be starting the match no matter the time set tonight but Nick Aldis, Drew McIntyre, Zack Sabre Jr and Bobby Roode..

    Xaiver Woods: Bobby Roode got pulled from the match.

    Big E: When?

    Kofi Kingston: Do you even watch the news?

    Xaiver walks forward whispering in Big E's ear as he pulls a shocked face before coughing and facing the camera.

    Big E: What I meant to say was whether it is Mojo Rawley or Curt Hawkins I will be walking away with the IC title around my waist cause I will go all the way.

    As he finishes that line we see a cringe like look from his teammates. Before they can respond we hear the music for the World tag team champions hit as Chad Gable and Jason Jordan make their way to the ring to a pop from the crowd. They step inside the ropes not looking amused.

    Jason Jordan: This is exactly why we will retain these titles this Sunday. Whilst you guys have been goofing off we have been hard at work in the gym getting ready.

    Chad Gable: Whilst we have been training with each other and pushing each other to the limit you guys have been focusing on Big E's IC title match and making jokes.

    Jason Jordan: Whilst we have been lifting...

    Big E: We get it you lift!

    Kofi Kingston: If you think we are not taking this title match seriously because we like to have a laugh then it will be easy to beat you at the Great American Bash.

    Xaiver Woods: When it comes to the tag team titles we always take it 100% seriously.

    Both teams get face to face with Big E standing back a little bit as Chad Gable goes to speak.

    Chad Gable: Take it as seriously as you want because we will show you why we run this tag team division as we are ready willing and

    Jason Jordan: GABLE!

    American Alpha raise their titles in the air to a pop from the crowd as we cut to an ad break with the two popular teams staring each other down. We cut to an ad break after that segment. When we come back we can see Aliyah is waiting in the ring ready for a match.

    Bryon Saxton: A big opportunity for Aliyah tonight to recover after her loss in her first match on Smackdown Live a few weeks ago.

    Mauro Ranallo: She is a young superstar who will be hoping to make an impact on the blue brand after being called up from NXT.

    We see who her opponent is for this match as the monstrous Nia Jax makes her way to the ring. Aliyah is clearly worried about facing the much larger foe.

    Tom Phillips: Nia Jax has to be one of the favourites this coming Sunday when we crown the first Amazonian champion.

    The ref rings the bell and this match is underway.

    Match 2: Nia Jax vs Aliyah

    Nia Jax controls the match from start to finish having very little trouble putting away Aliyah with a jumping leg drop.

    Winner via pinfall: Nia Jax (2:12)

    Nia Jax stands tall in the ring mocking the crowd. The boos turns to cheers though as Mickie James lays into Nia Jax. She gets off a number of punches but Nia lays her out with a clothesline dropping the veteran. Nia mocks Mickie James lifting her into the air when Mickie counters with a DDT!

    Bryon Saxton: If Mickie James can do that Sunday she will be one match away from becoming a 7 time champion.

    Mickie James celebrates in the ring as we cut to the backstage area as Renee Young approaches the Miz and his miztourage.

    Renee Young: Miz how are you feeling after Tyler Breeze lost to Rusev?

    Miz and the Miztourage look insulted that Renee mentioned the loss earlier on in the night.

    The Miz: Breeze was robbed! If Lana did not get involved and attacked my innocent wife at ringside he would have defeated that brute.

    Renee Young: I mean it could be argued that Lana was levelling the playing field.

    Maryse looks offended as she steps towards Renee Young.

    Maryse: Quipen sez-vous que vous êtes-vous stupide chienne?

    Renee looks so confused due to the fact she does not speak French as The Miz steps back in looking to speak once again.

    The Miz: Don't worry about it honey. It does not matter because at the Great American Bash the future WWE champion will beat him with or without his wife at ringside.

    As the Miz says that line Dean Ambrose walks into shot in his usual demin jacket and twirling a kendo stick making the Miztourage back off a little. He gives his wife a peck on the cheek before he turns to the Miz.

    Dean Ambrose: Watch how you speak to other people's wife Miz.

    The Miz: That is fine because this Sunday after your match with Bray Wyatt I may cash this in and take that WWE title.

    Dean smirks looking at Miz as he points his kendo stick at Miz making him back off.

    Dean Ambrose: And I would not blame you. I did the same thing to get my first WWE title but I will hunt you down relentlessly till I get my title back if you manage to win that is.

    The Miz backs off clearly scared by Dean Ambrose's threat as he retreats elsewhere backstage. Dean then turns back to his wife Renee.

    Dean Ambrose: We should probs do one of those interviews now I have scared off your original guest.

    Renee can't help but laugh at her husbands comment before putting on a straight face.

    Renee Young: What are your feelings on the Club?

    Dean Ambrose: Cool guys and helpful in keeping the rest of the Wyatts at bay. They seem to be multiplying by the day but as soon as I take the title from Bray I am under no illusion that this alliance is temporary.

    Renee Young: And your plan for Sunday?

    Dean Ambrose: I have never been someone for much of a plan as you know. Now I need to find Bray. See you later honey.

    Dean gives his wife another kiss as he goes to walk away when Renee shouts something to him.

    Renee Young: No TV monitors this time please!

    We cut elsewhere as we can see the Kings of Wrestling walking through the backstage area.

    Mauro Ranallo: Well up next we will see Cesaro and Kassius Ohno, the self-proclaimed Kings of Wrestling compete together for the first time on Smackdown Live after this commercial break.

    We come back from the ad break as we hear a good pop from the crowd as the Kings make their way to the ring. They look very confident ahead of this match.

    Tom Phillips: You have to give these two men the edge in this encounter due to their experience as a team in the past.

    Bryon Saxton: But that was outside of the WWE and unless you have done that here it is meaningless.

    Tom Phillips: No wonder Corey used to always rip into you...

    Mike Kanellis makes his way out to the ring joined by his wife Maria Kanellis as they make out on the ramp to boos from the crowd. As he makes his way to the ring he mocks Kassius Ohno once again making a jibe about his weight. Kassius Ohno does not seem bothered daring Mike to meet him in the ring but he chooses to wait on the outside.

    Mauro Ranallo: Mike Kanellis will look to use the power of love and the might of the big dawg to dethrone the kings of wrestling.

    Bryon Saxton: Roman Reigns does not seem like the power of love type if I am honest..

    Roman Reigns makes his way out next to massive boos from the crowd but he does not care for the crowd's reaction. He has a smug look as he makes his way to the ring. Mike Kanellis tries to offer Reigns a handshake but Reigns just blanks him stepping into the ring to start the match whilst Cesaro starts for his team.

    Match 3: Roman Reigns and Mike Kanellis w/Maria Kanellis vs Kings of Wrestling

    Reigns wrestles most of the match for his team with Mike Kanellis not really wanting any part of the other two men. Eventually Reigns makes the tag to Mike Kanellis bringing him into the match. He struggles against the superior teamwork of the Kings of Wrestling.

    Mike is quick to get out of the match tagging in Reigns before he is ready to re-enter the match pissing him off. In the closing stages of this match after a few more tags Mike goes to tag in Reigns but he drops down off the apron heading to the back promising to beat Cesaro on his own terms as leaves. Mike Kanellis turns around getting met with a Swiss death/ roaring elbow combo for the 3 count.

    Winners via pinfall: Kings of Wrestling (11:17)

    Mauro Ranallo: The kings have not lost a step!

    Tom Phillips: An impressive performance from the pair. Meanwhile on the other side of the ring Reigns was defiantly not feeling the power of love tonight.

    Bryon Saxton: Reigns has made it clear the only thing he loves on the Smackdown Live roster is himself.

    Both of the Kings carry on playing to the fans to a pop from the crowd as we cut to an ad break. When we come back from the ad break we see Kassius Ohno walking into Shane McMahon's office as Cesaro follows behind him.

    Kassius Ohno: Hello Shane.

    Shane McMahon: What can I do for you Kassius?

    Kassius Ohno: I want a one on one match with Mike Kanellis.

    Shane McMahon: Consider it done. You two will face each other on the Great American Bash pre-show.

    Kassius Ohno: Thanks Shane.

    Both of the Kings of Wrestling leave the room as we cut back to the ring. We hear the music for Drew McIntyre as he makes his way to the ring.

    Mauro Ranallo: The sinister Scotsman is making his way to the ring.

    Tom Phillips: He has been on great form since returning at Wrestlemania and winning the Andre the giant battle royal.

    Drew stands in the ring enjoying the positive reaction from the crowd.

    Drew McIntyre: I told you all that when I came back I would be aiming to get to the top as fast as possible and this Sunday I will win the IC title for the second time. Zack Sabre Jr is a submission specialist, Nick Aldis is someone I know well from my time in England and is a powerhouse. Big E is a multi-time champion in singles and tag team competition. And the last man in the match will be hungry to win their first IC title whoever that might be.

    He pauses for a moment before looking to the fans.

    Drew McIntyre: But none will be as hungry and strong as me! I got let go from this company quite rightfully as I had slipped and become a shadow of myself. Now? I am here to prove I am the best!

    He has a focused and fired up look on his face.

    Drew McIntyre: Now I know I am either the last competitor or the second to last competitor in the championship scramble however it does not matter when I enter because that IC title will be mine.

    As Drew finishes that line Nick Aldis makes his way to the ring with a suit and sunglasses on. He gets in the ring before offering his hand to Drew. Drew however does not look impressed nor interested in a handshake. Nick pulls his hand back before going to speak.

    Nick Aldis: OK I get it. Competitive spirit. However me and you we should work together in this match.

    Drew McIntyre: Why is that then?

    Nick Aldis: We are the two most powerful men in this match. We should work together to take everyone else out and then fight between ourselves for the title. What do you say?

    Before Drew McIntyre can answer we hear the music for the current IC champion Zack Sabre Jr hit as he makes his way to the ring.

    Zack Sabre Jr: You never seem to be able to do anything by yourself Aldis? Has the fact that Roode is out of the match got you running scared and you need a new ally to hold your hand.

    Nick Aldis: Keep talking Sabre because I will break you in half.

    Zack Sabre Jr: Never heard that before. I know a number of submissions to tie you up in knots. I mean I am sure I could find a way to tie you both up as the same time if needed.

    Drew steps forward getting in Sabre's face.

    Drew McIntyre: I don't need to team up with anyone. I will be taking that title myself this Sunday and no one is going to stop m...

    Nick Aldis attacks Drew from behind clearly annoyed at Drew turning down his offer for a team up. He lays into Drew as Sabre watches on. Drew is able to however fight back hitting Aldis with a number of clubbing blows before he plants Aldis with a futureshock DDT! However before Drew can react Sabre hits him from behind with the title to a mixed reaction from the crowd. Sabre lifts the IC title in the air shrugging his shoulders as he stand over two of his challengers this Sunday.

    Bryon Saxton: Zack Sabre Jr stands tall with the IC title in his hands right now but will the same happen this Sunday?

    We cut to an ad break with Sabre walking up the ramp as Drew rises to his feet looking annoyed. When we come back from the ad break we hear a small pop from the crowd as Curt Hawkins makes his way to the ring.

    Tom Phillips: Curt Hawkins will be looking for revenge tonight for what Mojo did to him and his partner Zack Ryder.

    Bryon Saxton: And that is why I give the advantage to Mojo here. He will be focused on earning a chance at the IC title whilst Hawkins will want revenge and a shot at the title.

    Mojo Rawley makes his way out looking very serious as he sprints down to the ring. Hawkins goes right after Mojo and the ref is forced to ring the bell starting this match off.

    Match 4: Beat the clock challenge: Mojo Rawley vs Curt Hawkins

    Both men go at each other in what is frantic encounter due to the anger between the two men. Commentary remind us both have extra encouragement to finish this early due to the beat the clock challenge. In the closing stages Mojo is able to move out of the way of the heat seeking elbow as he grabs Hawkins and connects with the Hyper Driver for the win.

    Winner via pinfall: Mojo Rawley (7:40)

    Mojo looks up at the screen seeing his time and shouts to the crowd “SEE I AM THE HYPE” getting boos from the crowd.

    Mauro Ranallo: An impressive time from Mojo Rawley and now the hype man will be entering the IC championship scramble last.

    Tom Phillips: Well now we know the order for the IC championship scramble. Big E and Nick Aldis will start the match off, followed by the champion Zack Sabre Jr, next in will be Drew McIntyre and the last man to enter will be Mojo Rawley.

    Mojo shouts some more and mocks the fans as we head to an ad break. When we come back Mojo Rawley can be seen walking through the back over-celebrating and being a bit of a knob when he gets approached by Renee Young.

    Renee Young: Mojo how are you feeling after earning a shot at the IC title?

    Mojo Rawley: I am feeling hyped up! I have finally ditched the dead weight. Do you see Zack Ryder here? No I put him on the shelf and if he is smart he will stay there. This Sunday I have the advantage and I will take the IC title. I will also hold it for longer then a day unlike Ryder.

    Mojo walks off as he keeps on shouting and hollering his way through the backstage area cheering in the face of the backstage workers. We cutback to the ring as we can see two men who very rarely appear on Smackdown Live, Simon Gotch and Darren Young stood in the ring ready for a match.

    Tom Phillips: These two have an opportunity to get a win and maybe show Shane McMahon they deserve an opportunity with Summerslam on the horizon.

    Bryon Saxton: They call Smackdown Live the land of opportunity for a reason.

    Both men lock up in the ring and the match is underway.

    Match 5: Simon Gotch vs Darren Young

    This match lasts 30 seconds when the lights go out once again. When they come back on we hear the music for the Wyatt Family as they all make their way to the ring to boos from the crowd. They attack both men causing the match to be thrown out.

    Winner: No contest (1:01)

    All 4 of Bray's followers lay waste to the pair hitting them with multiple finishers as Bray has a microphone in hand.

    Bray Wyatt: Dean, Balor, Styles, Paige, Anderson and Gallows.

    He smiles as watches Kane and Harper toss Simon Gotch and Darren Young from the ring like rag dolls.

    Bray Wyatt: This Sunday you all shall fall as we lay waste to the roster and start to take all that should ours!

    Bray falls to his knees and stretches his arms out.

    Bray Wyatt: FOLLOW THE BUZZARDS.

    As he gets back up to his feet The Club make their way out to the ring. They are soon joined on the top of the ramp by Paige and last but certainty not least the number one contender for the WWE title Dean Ambrose is on the ramp as well.

    Mauro Ranallo: When we come back we will have our main event for the evening do not change the channel!

    Main Event: Dean Ambrose and Finn Balor w/AJ Styles, Paige and The Club vs Luke Harper and Kane w/ Wyatt Family

    True to his words when we come back from the ad break the match is already underway. Harper is in the ring taking on the smaller Finn Balor. Finn still acts like his old cocky self but shows off his high flying skills as he looks to wear down the two larger foes.

    After the opening stages Kane and Harper take control of the match. Finn however is able to fight them off making the hot tag to Dean Ambrose who storms into the ring like a man on fire. As this is happening on the outside Ziggler tries to get involved but the Good brothers stop him. This leads to Rowan coming over starting a fight on the outside.

    Paige and Sarah Logan come to blows again as well as Bray Wyatt and AJ Styles. Whilst this is going on Finn sees the chaos on the outside and runs off the ropes with a massive suicide dive to everyone. Harper however follows up with one of his own! In the ring Kane has fought Ambrose off as he looks for a chokeslam when Ambrose counters hitting Kane in the gut before he hits a Dirty Deeds. Ambrose makes the cover as Finn stops Harper from breaking the cover!

    Winners via pinfall: Finn Balor and Dean Ambrose (8:33)

    Mauro Ranallo: A massive win for the Demon King and the kingpin tonight over two of the members of the Wyatt Family!

    The match may be over but the fight is still going on outside the ring as Paige and Sarah Logan have ended up going into the crowd. On the outside The Wyatt Family, The Club, AJ Styles and Dean Ambrose are also brawling with each other on the outside. It is pure carnage outside of the ring.

    Mauro Ranallo: It is chaos here as we are going off the air. Who will walk away with victory this Sunday? Paige or Sarah Logan? The Club or The Wyatt Family? Dean Ambrose or Bray Wyatt? Tune into the WWE network for $9.99 to find out!

    The show fades to black as the brawl carries on...

    Baron Corbin breaks his leg at a house show:

    During a house show match Baron Corbin broke his leg in a spot where he fell out of the ring awkwardly. He is projected to be out for 7 months due to the injury. This also means his match on Raw with Sandow is cancelled for obvious reasons. What this means next for Damien Sandow is unknown.

    Match announced for the pre-show:

    It has been announced on the Great American Bash pre-show we will see Big Cass vs Jack Swagger in what Shane McMahon has described as an exhibition match to give the two men a chance to show what they can do.

    Re: WWE: A Different Future

    WWE title street fight (If ANYONE interferes the title will be held up):
    Bray Wyatt (c) vs Dean Ambrose
    I think Bray retains here, as his reign has been great thus far. It would be surprising to see someone interfere and the title be held up, but I think a dominant win by Bray happens here.

    Faction warfare:
    The Club (AJ Styles, Finn Balor, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows) vs The Wyatt Family (Luke Harper, Dolph Ziggler, Kane and Erick Rowan)
    The buildup to this has been awesome, and in real life I’d love to see this happen. I think this continues for another month, actually I hope it does because this has been my favorite thing in your BTB.

    World tag team titles match:
    American Alpha (c) vs The New Day
    American Alpha retains, but The New Day gives them a run for their money.

    Grudge match:
    Roman Reigns vs Cesaro
    I’d like to see Cesaro pick up a win here.

    Grudge match:
    The Miz vs Rusev
    Both guys have been booked awesome so far, but I’m going with Rusev.

    IC championship scramble match:
    Zack Sabre Jr (c) vs Drew McIntyre vs Nick Aldis vs Big E vs Mojo Rawley
    The thing I love the most about your BTB is you give guys who would not usually be booked high up very strong pushes. The same goes for RAW with Sami Zayn. I love McIntyre here, but Sabre Jr. has had a great run with the IC title. I just think it’s time for a change.

    Amazonian title semi-final match:
    Paige vs Sarah Logan
    Logan is a beast, and after all, it is the Amazonian title.

    Amazonian title semi-final match:
    Mickie James vs Nia Jax
    Same comments apply for Jax here.

    Amazonian title final match:
    Paige or Sarah Logan vs Mickie James or Nia Jax
    Nia Jax as the first ever Amazonian champ makes perfect sense. Build up the division around here trashing girls left and right.

    Pre-show:

    Grudge match:
    Kassius Ohno vs Mike Kanellis w/ Maria Kanellis
    Ohno takes it here, would love to see more of him.

    Exhibition match:
    Big Cass vs Jack Swagger
    Big Cass needs the win more than Swagger.

    Just wanted to say that although I haven’t given much feedback on your thread, I’ve been following it for over a year now. It is very underrated in my opinion, and I am very excited to see this PPV play out. Good luck writing brother!

    Great American Bash Re: WWE: A Different Future


    July 9th
    Philadelphia, Pennsylvania



    Pre-show:

    We start the pre-show off with the usual panel Renee Young, Jerry Lawler and Peter Rosenberg as they go through the up coming show. They talk about how Big Cass wanted a match to try to get back on form after his struggles without his former partner Enzo Amore. We then cut to the ring for the first match of the pre-show.

    Mauro Ranallo: Welcome to the Great American Bash!

    Byron Saxton: We have a hell of a show on the way tonight with the Club going to war with the Wyatt Family, the Amazonian title will have it's first champion and Bray Wyatt will defend his WWE title in a street fight against Dean Ambrose.

    We cut to the entrance ramp as the music of Big Cass hits to a very small reaction from the crowd. He looks focused as he marches down to the ring before climbing over the ropes.

    Tom Phillips: But right now we have our first match of the night as Big Cass and Jack Swagger get a chance to impress the Smackdown Live commissioner.

    Mauro Ranallo: Big Cass is 7 feet tall but he has been coming up short recently.

    Jack Swagger makes his way out onto the ramp as he places his hand on his chest and shouts “We the people”. The fans join in with him before he walks towards the ring ready for this match.

    Byron Saxton: This will be a tough challenge for Big Cass. Jack Swagger is a former World champion.

    Both men circle the ring as the ref rings the bell starting the match off.

    Pre-show: Big Cass vs Jack Swagger

    Both men start the match off slowly feeling each other out. Big Cass takes control of the encounter after the early stages showing a lot of aggression. As the match goes on Swagger makes sure to target the right leg of the giant. In the closing stages of the match Big Cass is getting more wound up by the fact he cannot put Swagger away and gets warned by the ref for keeping Swagger in the corner too long. Big Cass ignores this pounding him in the corner before tossing Swagger out of the corner. Cass charges in as Swagger counters with a chop block bringing Cass down to his knees. Swagger follows up grabbing hold of the right leg and locks in the ankle lock. Cass tries to make it to the ropes but in the end he is forced to tap out!

    Winner via submission: Jack Swagger (9:19)

    Mauro Ranallo: A massive win for Jack Swagger over coming the 7 footer!

    Jack Swagger celebrates in the ring looking fairly serious as he gets a positive reaction from the crowd. Big Cass meanwhile is selling his leg as he limps to his feet offering his hand to Jack Swagger. Jack Swagger takes a moment before accepting the handshake from the giant.

    Tom Phillips: A nice show of respect from Big Cass there.

    As Jack goes to releases the handshake however Big Cass refuses to let go instead pulling him in and takes his down with a clothesline. He quickly lifts Jack Swagger up dropping him with the East river crossing leaving Swagger laid out in the middle of the ring.

    Byron Saxton: What a cowardly attack by Big Cass!

    Big Cass walks up the ramp getting boos from the crowd as we cut back tothe pre-show panel. They discuss what we have just seen with Jerry mentioning sometimes the losses get to be too much but now Big Cass may start to fulfill his potential. They then talk about returning to the ring for the second match of the night but instead we cut to the gorilla position as we see Kassius Ohno walking to the ring when he is approached by his friend Cesaro.

    Cesaro: Hey just wanted to wish you luck before your match.

    Kassius Ohno: Don't worry this won't take long.

    Kassius does a fist bump with his friend Cesaro before he walks off getting ready to make his entrance. The fans give us a massive pop as he makes his way to the ring to the excitement of the crowd.

    Mauro Ranallo: One of the new talents that has been brought to Monday Night Raw from NXT!

    Byron Saxton: He showed a lot of promise when he came close to defeating Roman Reigns a few weeks ago and now looks to pick up a big win on the Great American Bash pre-show tonight.

    Kassius stands in the ring shadow boxing as the cheers turn to boos as Mike and Maria Kanellis make their way to the top of the entrance ramp. Both of them play with each other as Maria does a little twirl before giving Mike a snog before he climbs into the ring.

    Tom Phillips: I don't think Mike Kanellis is taking the challenge he will face in Kaissus Ohno seriously guys.

    Mike makes his way to the ring as his wife makes her way to the corner. The ref checks both men before he rings the bell starting this match off.

    Pre-show: Mike Kanellis w/Maria Kanellis vs Kassius Ohno

    Mike tells the ref to wait a minute as he gets his wife to make her way onto the apron. She kisses her husband as Kassius Ohno waits behind him not impressed. Maria finishes telling her husband to kick his ass. Mike Kanellis turns around into the ROARING ELBOW! Kassius makes the cover 1 2 3 Kassius Ohno beats Mike Kanellis in 17 seconds!!!

    Winner via pinfall: Kassius Ohno (0:17)

    Kassius Ohno celebrates in the ring showing off his elbow as Mike Kanellis lays on the mat out cold as his wife checks on him. KO walks up the ring looking very happy with his handy work whilst Mike is only just starting to wake up.

    Mauro Ranallo: MOMMA MIA That is what we call a knockout!

    Byron Saxton: No wonder he is known as K.O.

    We cut back to the pre-show panel after that very short match. All 3 on the panel praise the skill showed by Kassius Ohno and mention that his ability to knock people out in seconds makes him a dangerous competitor on the Smackdown Live roster. They start to talk about the opening match of the show which will be for the IC championship. All 3 make their predictions with Renee picking Zack Sabre Jr, Peter picking Drew McIntyre and Jerry Lawler picking Mojo Rawley to win the match. We cut to the ring as the main show is about to begin.

    Main show:

    Tom Phillips: Welcome to the Great American Bash!

    Byron Saxton: And up first we will have the IC title championship scramble!

    Mauro Ranallo: This match will have a 20 minute time limit. Nick Aldis and Big E will start the match with the other entrants in the match entering 5 minutes later. The person with the last pinfall or submission in the match will be IC champion.

    Tom Phillips: Also if there are no pinfall or submissions during the match Zack Sabre Jr will retain his title.

    As the commentary team finish explaining the rules we hear the music for the 1st entrant in this championship scramble match Big E Langston. The crowd let out a massive cheer as he slaps the hands of the kids in the front row.

    Mauro Ranallo: Big E will be looking to bring the IC title back to the New Day

    Byron Saxton: Big E is my pick to win. I love the New Day. Hey Big E over here, over here!

    Big E ignores Byron Saxton as he signals to the fans he is winning the belt. We next hear the music for Nick Aldis as he gets booed by the crowd.

    Mauro Ranallo: The mercenary Nick Aldis marches to the ring as he looks to win the gold.

    Tom Phillips: Winning that title could lead to new sponsorship deals for Aldis. We know he is driven by one thing. The almighty dollar.

    Both men stare each other down in the ring as the ref holds Zack Sabre Jr's IC title in the air as this match gets under way.

    IC title championship scramble match: Zack Sabre Jr (c) vs Drew McIntyre vs Big E vs Nick Aldis vs Mojo Rawley

    Both of the larger men size each other up as they circle the ring at the start of the encounter as both know they will be in for a long match and don't want to overextend themselves early on. Both men struggle for control in the center of the ring however Big E uses his remarkable strength to take control, locking Nick Aldis into an abdominal stretch working over his mid-section.

    He pulls back on Aldis before he starts to do some booty slaps as well! This seems to wind Nick Aldis up who fights out of the hold before running off the ropes looking to take Big E down but Big E counters with a belly to back suplex sending Aldis across the ring. Nick Aldis rolls out of the ring to boos from the crowd looking to get his breath back after a rough start.

    Big E though is quick to follow him to the outside knocking Aldis down to the ring floor as commentary remind us that there are no countouts in this encounter. Big E picks up Aldis as he looks to send him back towards the ring with an Irish whip but Aldis counters sending Big E into the commentary desk instead! Nick Aldis follows up with an European uppercut stunning Big E for a moment. Aldis follows up with a belly to back suplex onto the ring floor.

    Aldis picks up Big E rolling him back into the ring as he makes the first cover of the match. 1 2 Big E kicks out. Aldis looks to lock in the cloverleaf but Big E uses his feet to kick Aldis away sending him towards the ropes. Big E charges at Nick Aldis but gets met with a boot to the gut stopping him. Aldis starts laying into Big E with a number of punches forcing him towards the corner of the ring.

    Aldis takes a few steps backwards before he charges in connecting with a big boot to the head of Big E. Big E falls to the mat as Aldis makes the cover 1 2 Big E kicks out. Aldis lays into him with a few punches working over Big E on the mat before hitting a knee drop as he makes the cover 1 2 Nick Aldis makes the cover. Aldis is in total control of the match as he climbs to the top rope.

    He flies off looking for an elbow drop but Big E rolls out of the way causing Aldis to crash and burn landing on his elbow! Big E is quick to pounce grabbing hold of Aldis before bringing him down with a gutbuster. Big E is quick to follow up as he rolls off the ropes hitting a jumping splash. Big E makes the cover 1 2 Aldis kicks out. Big E takes a moment to sell the damage done to him so far by Aldis before he bends down.

    He picks Aldis up off the mat before he locks him in a bearhug as he looks to wear down the midsection of Aldis. Aldis looks to be in a lot pain as Big E squeezes Aldis trying to force him to tap out. Aldis looks to escape from the hold however as Aldis looks like he is about to escape Big E transitions it into an overhead belly to belly suplex sending Aldis flying across the ring. Aldis gets to his feet using the ropes and turnbuckle trying to rest in the corner.

    However Big E has no intention of letting him rest at all as Big E charges in hitting him with multiple punches to the midsection in the corner. Big E fires off a sizable number before following it up with a number of shoulder blocks into the midsection. Aldis is struggling to stand at the moment after this assault from Big E. Big E makes his way to the other corner of the ring before charging in with a brutal running turnbuckle thrust!

    Nick Aldis falls to the mat as Big E makes the cover 1 2 Aldis kicks out! Big E looks to the worn down Nick Aldis as he scoops him off the mat looking to connect with the Big Ending!

    Current fall holder: Big E (7:49)

    Sabre just misses out on breaking the fall and realizes that he will now have to change his strategy for this match with 12 minutes left and his title reign is in jeopardy.

    Drew McIntyre does not waste anytime as he sprints down the ramp realizing that Aldis is about to tap but he is too late!

    Current fall holder: Zack Sabre Jr (10:05)

    Sabre lets go of the hold as Aldis rolls out of the ring. Drew upon seeing the tap stops sprinting and instead walks slowly almost terminator like as he joins Sabre inside the ring realizing there is little point wasting energy sprinting. The two British superstars stare each other down. Sabre moves first as he tries to grab hold of the arm of Drew but Drew connects with a number of knife edge chops as he forces Sabre towards the corner of the ring.

Drew gets up as he looks to carry on his attack when Aldis charges in and connects with a lariat with his left arm knocking Drew to the mat. Aldis once again lays into him with a number of stomps before he looks to lift Sabre up off the mat with his arms taking a lot longer then he normally would.

    He does manage it however as he connects with a snake eyes to the champion before he lifts him into the air hitting a vertical suplex dropping Sabre to the mat. He makes the cover 1 2 Drew McIntyre breaks it up. Sabre rolls out of the ring for the moment as Drew looks to carry on his assault.

    Drew is not done with Aldis as he lays into him with an elbow drop to the prone Nick Aldis. Drew looks to the damaged right arm of Nick Aldis as he seems to have an idea as he grabs it before looking to lock in the Iron maiden on Aldis's already damaged arm!

    Tom Phillips: A 6 time women's champion and tonight she has the chance to make history. If she beats Nia Jax and then Sarah Logan she will become a 7 time Women champion tying with Trish Straus!

Ambrose grabs hold of Bray as he looks to toss him into the top of the entrance ramp but Bray counters with a punch to the gut. Ambrose staggers as Bray hits him with a reverse suplex on the floor. Bray once again lets out an evil chuckle as picks up a box from the production area before tossing it at Ambrose!

    Bray however is not done as he looks through the equipment before he seems to have an idea as he unhooks something and pulls out a cable from the equipment. He makes his way over to Ambrose as he wraps the cable around the throat of Ambrose as he starts to strangle him with it!Massive boos by the crowd as Bray has the cable wrapped tightly around the throat of Ambrose as he looks to squeeze the air out of the kingpin of WWE.

    Ambrose is struggling to breathe due to the hold he is trapped in as Bray is yanking on the cable more and more. We can see Ambrose's face going red as he is starting to run out of breath when his arms start to scramble as he puts his hand on Bray's face before raking the eyes of Bray forcing him to break the hold! Ambrose rolls away coughing and spluttering as he struggles to get his breath back. Bray meanwhile rises to his feet first clutching his face before he picks up Ambrose tossing him back onto the entrance ramp!

    Bray is once again laughing to himself like the madman he is. He drags Ambrose up off his feet before he connects with a snap suplex on the entrance ramp. Bray walks over towards Ambrose as he stomps on him a couple of times. Bray looks to lift Ambrose up off the floor as he gets ready to connect with a sister Abigail on the ramp when Ambrose counters with a tornado DDT!

    Ambrose lays on the ramp next to Bray for a moment before he slowly rises to his feet as he looks towards the ring and sees his kendo stick that he brought to the ring at the start of the match. He walks over towards the stick picking it up. As he turns around though Bray Wyatt looks to take his head off with a lariat. Ambrose is able to duck out of the way before putting the kendo stick around Bray's throat and hits him with a russian legsweep onto the ring floor!

    Ambrose gets back up to his feet slowly as he sells the damage he has received so far this match. He raises the stick into the air as he starts wailing on Bray Wyatt hitting him with numerous shots to the back. He hits so many shots that the stick actually breaks! Ambrose tosses the broken stick away as he starts to think through his next move in the match. Bray makes his way to the timekeepers area as he grabs a few of the steel chairs from ringside and tosses them into the ring! Ambrose then makes his way under the ring as he start throwing some more chairs into the ring. We end up with about 10 chairs in the ring all on top of each other!

    Ambrose makes his way back over towards Bray who hits him with a spear dropping Ambrose on the ring floor once again! Bray rises back up to his feet as he tosses Ambrose into the ring post. Bray takes a moment to rest on the barricade wall before he connects with a body avalanche on the ring post crushing Ambrose! Bray follows this up by rolling Ambrose back into the ring.

    Bray does not make the cover however instead having a look at the pile of chairs in the center of the ring. He grabs hold of the prone Ambrose before he connects with a toss suplex onto the mass of chairs! Ambrose grabs his back in pain as Bray makes the first cover of the match!

    Ambrose kicks out!

    Bray looks a little shocked that Ambrose was able to kick out as he laughs to himself before he lays into Ambrose with a number of blows to the head! Bray looks to grab one of the chairs from the pile as he wedges it into the corner of the ring! Bray turns around to attack Ambrose but he has grabbed one of the chair from the mat. He hits Bray in the gut causing him to fall back towards the ropes before Ambrose swings back sending Bray down to the floor on the outside.

    Ambrose drops the chair before he starts to run off the ropes as he flies over the top rope hitting Bray Wyatt with AIR LUNATIC! Both men lay down with Ambrose rising to his feet first as he grabs hold of the chair he dropped near the ropes bringing it to the outside. He starts to lay into Bray with a number of shots, breaking the chair and tossing it away!

    Ambrose is far from done there however. He looks over towards the commentary desk as he tells the team to move out of the way. They are quick to do what Ambrose says all moving out of the way allowing Ambrose to start to clear the table. Ambrose takes it apart before looking at the monitor for a moment before shaking his head and tossing it away choosing not to use one again. Ambrose looks back to Bray who is starting to rise back to his feet so Ambrose connects with a front dropkick sending Bray into the steel steps!

    Ambrose goes to the ring apron after this taking a look to see what he can find. He takes a while before finding A LADDER! Ambrose starts getting it set up on the floor by the announce table. As he is doing this Bray is starting to rise to his feet. Ambrose realizes though as he grabs another chair from the ring and starts whacking Bray with it multiple times to keep him down! Dean Ambrose drops the chair for the moment as he drags Bray towards the announce table placing him on it.

    Ambrose however places the chair on the chest of Bray before he starts to climb the ladder! He takes a few moments to get to the top of the ladder before he dives off hitting THE LUNATIC FRINGE ELBOW FROM THE TOP OF THE LADDER ONTO THE CHAIR! The announce table breaks with both men falling to the floor as Ambrose sells his elbow, causing a lot of pain to himself as well as Bray Wyatt!

    Both men lay in the wreckage of the announce table for a good 20 seconds as we see a replay of what just happened. Ambrose unsurprisingly rises to his feet first as he grabs hold of Bray. He struggles to lift him due to the damage done to his arm from that lunatic fringe elbow. However he manages to get Bray back into the ring! Dean Ambrose rolls him back towards the center of the ring as he makes the cover!

    Bray kicks out!

    Ambrose looks shocked that Bray was able to recover in time as he drags Bray towards the pile of chairs. He lifts Bray off the mat as he hits a snap suplex onto the steel chairs! Bray grabs his back in pain from landing on all the chairs as Ambrose makes the cover

    Bray kicks out!

    Ambrose looks annoyed as he makes his way to the outside of the ring as he can be seen looking for something. Ambrose takes his time before he pulls out from under the ring a bag. Ambrose gets in the ring before he tips it onto the ring floor as we can see a BUNCH OF THUMB-TACKS! They fall all over the ring by the opposite corner to where the steel chair is wedged and adjacent to pile of chairs.

    Ambrose meanwhile makes his way towards Bray Wyatt as he drags him towards the thumb-tacks as he looks like he is about to connect with dirty deeds onto the tacks! However Bray headbutts Dean before he throws him head first into the steel chair in the corner of the ring! Ambrose falls backwards and turns around as Bray hits a corner spear crushing Ambrose between himself and the chair. Bray throws him out the corner before making the cover!

    Ambrose kicks out!

    Ambrose seems to have been busted open after hitting that chair head first! Bray however does not seem done as he grabs one of the chairs from the pile in the corner of the ring lifting it into the air preparing to destroy Ambrose. However Ambrose desperately bites the leg of Bray forcing him backwards! Ambrose rises up before he grabs hold of Bray hitting A BELLY TO BACK SUPLEX INTO THE THUMB-TACKS!!!

    Bray jumps out of the thumb-tacks on instinct in a ton of pain as he moves right into the clutches of Ambrose who grabs hold of him and connects with a DIRTY DEEDS onto the floor! Ambrose hooks the leg!

    Bray Wyatt kicks out!!!

    Ambrose looks in shock that Bray was able to survive as he gets up to his feet being careful to avoid the thumb-tacks. Ambrose looks over to the pile of chairs as he looks to grab one to finish Bray off.However before he can get a shot in on Bray, the creepy cult leader rolls to the outside of the ring! Ambrose sees this as Bray looks like he is trying to stumble to his feet on the outside! Ambrose seeing this runs off the ropes looking for a suicide dive when Bray dodges out of the way causing Ambrose to crash and burn!

    Ambrose holds his head on the ring floor as blood is starting to pour out of it as we can see Bray rise up with some cuts on his arm and back where the tacks went in! Bray picks up Ambrose as he drags him up before hitting a viscous sister Abigail onto the barricade!!! (aka Bray vs Bryan at the rumble). Bray grabs the prone Ambrose as he rolls him back into the ring making the cover!

    Ambrose kicks out!

    Whether it was on pure instinct Ambrose some how finds a way to survive. Bray though lets out an almost psychotic laugh as he looks at Ambrose before he lifts him off the mat. He whispers in Ambrose ear he will show him true pain! He lifts Ambrose up before hitting a lifting side-slam onto the thumb-tacks!!! Ambrose screams in pain. Bray though grabs hold of him as he brings him towards the steel chairs. Bray kiss Ambrose's head before he hits SISTER ABIGAIL ONTO THE STEEL CHAIRS! Bray makes the cover

    Winner via pinfall and still WWE champion: Bray Wyatt (19:51)

    The crowd are almost silent after the brutality they witnessed in the closing stages between the two men. However it soon turns to boos as Bray rises to his feet demanding to passed his “holy grail”.

    Mauro Ranallo: Mercifully this is over.

    Byron Saxton: Ambrose did his best to overcome the monster tonight but there is no one who is as sick and twisted as the eater of Worlds Bray Wyatt.

    Ambrose can seen being checked by the medical team whilst Bray rolls to the outside clutching his title in what has been a successful night for the Wyatts as they have won ALL of their matches tonight. The final shots of the show are Ambrose being tended to by the medical team whilst Bray stand on top of the ramp laughing like a mad man with his WWE title held high above his head as we fade to black...

    WWE Re: WWE: A Different Future

    Finn and AJ Styles fight backstage:

    We heard that things broke down after the show with Finn Balor and AJ Styles getting into it backstage. Anderson and Gallows tried to calm the situation but it took Shane and other officials to break it up as the two men were so desperate to get their hands on each other. We will hear more about what happened on Smackdown Live this Tuesday!

    Maryse to take a break from TV

    Maryse is to take a break from TV so she and Miz can attempt to start a family soon. This is the reason Breezedango have been paired with the Miz in recent times so he has a replacement for Maryse now she won't be on TV.

    Backstage news on the street fight:

    Last night during the street fight we saw Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt use thumb-tacks during the match. This is expected to be a one off as WWE feels doing this too often is a safety risk to the wrestlers but both men pushed for the tacks to be used feeling it fit the nature of their characters. Expect Dean Ambrose to take a week off to sell the impact of the moves received though Bray is expected on Summerslam to build to his WWE title match at the event.

    King of the ring:

    We are hearing the first details for the upcoming King of the ring tournament that will be taking place on September 24th. We have heard that the last 32 qualifying matches will take place on Raw and Smackdown with the last 16 taking place on the PPV itself. Another important note ahead of the pay-per-view is an added stipulation to this years King of the ring. There will be no current or former World champion or WWE champions allowed to take part. That means the following names are ineligible for the tournament:


    Raw:


    Brock Lesnar

    Jeff Hardy

    Randy Orton

    Sami Zayn

    Samoa Joe

    Seth Rollins

    Sheamus



    Smackdown:

    AJ Styles

    Bray Wyatt

    Chris Jericho

    Dean Ambrose

    Dolph Ziggler

    Jack Swagger

    John Cena

    Kane

    Mark Henry

    Roman Reigns

    Raw Re: WWE: A Different Future


    July 10th

    Houston, Texas

    We kick off Monday Night Raw with highlights of last week's World title match between Sami Zayn and Austin Aries. Shows Aries taking Sami Zayn to the limit before he gets put away with the Hulleva kick! However the focus becomes distorted as we see Braun Strowman attacking Sami Zayn post-match. We then get a replay of him declaring his intention to cash in his Money in the bank briefcase and face Sami Zayn at Summerslam! The opening package finishes as we cut to the ring!

    Michael Cole: Hello and welcome to Monday night Raw here tonight in Houston Texas!

    We hear the music for Mr Money in the bank and the number one contender to the World title Braun Strowman! He marches down to the ring to boos from the crowd looking in a very serious mood.

    Booker T: Well they say everything is bigger in Texas but Braun Strowman could make anyone look small!

    Corey Graves: Well if Sami Zayn was smart he would go into hiding because in 4 weeks time he will have to face this monster!

    Braun raises the microphone up to his mouth with his money in the bank briefcase still in the other hand as he goes to speak.

    Braun Strowman: In 4 weeks time I will take the World title from Sami Zayn! I told him that I don't need to sneak up on him and I would let him know his doomsday well in advance!

    Braun raises his briefcase up to eye level.

    Braun Strowman: As soon as I won this briefcase Sami's time as World champion was running out. The only thing that stopped me cashing this in sooner is Seth Rollins.

    Cheers from the crowd for the popular superstar as Braun looks to the crowd with an angry snarl.

    Braun Strowman: However now I have crushed him I can take my place as the World champion!

    As Braun looks to carry on we hear the music for the World champion Sami Zayn as he makes his way out with the belt around his waist. He also has a microphone in hand as he walks towards the ring.

    Sami Zayn: Braun I may not have heard this from a “monster” but I have heard this speech before. My time is up. That someone is going to take this World title. You are not on level. However I have news for you.Whilst I still have breath in my lungs I will fight to keep this title!

    Massive pop from the crowd as Sami Zayn shows a lot of fire and heart as he stands in the ring staring at the monster of a man in front of him.

    Sami Zayn: I have faced men bigger then me, I have faced friends, I have faced legend killers and I have even faced greats but I still fought with all of my heart to keep hold of this belt!

    Braun looks unmoved by this impassioned speech before he looks to respond.

    Braun Strowman: But you have yet to face a monster like me! And at Summerslam you will get these...

    Sami Zayn: Yes I have heard you before. However why wait? Why not cash it in right now? How about have the World title match right now here in Huston Texas!

    Braun smiles as he seems to be considering agreeing to Sami Zayn's challenge.

    Braun Strowman: No.

    Boos from the crowd as Sami Zayn smiles before going to respond.

    Sami Zayn: Maybe you are scared of coming up short agains...

    Briefcase shot to the skull to massive boos from the crowd! Braun starts laying into Sami Zayn beating him down after dazing him with that briefcase. He is not done there however as he grabs hold of Sami Zayn lifting him into the air and planting him with a running powerslam! Braun picks up the microphone he dropped on the floor.

    Braun Strowman: I ain't cashing in yet because I ain't finished with you yet!

    Braun walks over the top rope as he leaves Sami Zayn destroyed in the ring as we cut to an ad break. When we come back we see the monster among men walking through the back when he is stopped by Charly Caruso who is looking for an interview.

    Charly Caruso: Braun, Sami Zayn has a point when he asks why not cash it in tonight or next week if you don't want to sneak attack him? Why wait till Summerslam?

    Braun takes a moment to think.

    Braun Strowman: People think because I am a giant I am stupid. I know I could beat Sami Zayn up and cash this in for a title shot right now. Or I could do it next week. However I want to crush Sami Zayn on the big stage. I want to extend the beating for as long as possible before I take my place as World champion.

    Braun as soon as he finishes that line walk off elsewhere backstage as we cut back to the commentary desk.

    Booker T: That man is terrifying.

    Corey Graves: Sami Zayn's title reign is in massive jeopardy. Braun is not some ordinary brute force. He is more like Bane. A mixture of brawn and brains. A truly terrifying combination.

    Michael Cole: Well up next we have Hunico and Kalisto in action against two local talents stood in the ring Billy Drake and Matt Spencer!

    Corey Graves: Zelina requested this match so Hunico and Kalisto can show her what work needs to be done to take the pair to the top.

    Hunico and Kalisto make their way out to the ring as Zelina Vega walks down to the ring with them with a microphone in her hand.

    Zelina Vega: Tonight my new clients will show me how much they have to learn under my mentor-ship. You see I am the reason for Andrade Cien Almas's rise in NXT and in 4 weeks time he will become NXT champion! However it took a lot of work and right now these two are going to show me how much work they need.

    Both men climb into the ring as Zelina watches from the outside. The ref rings the bell and the match is underway!

    Match 1: Hunico and Kalisto vs Billy Drake and Matt Spencer

    Throughout the match we can see Zelina Vega keeping an eye on her new clients and seeing how they perform. It becomes clear even during the short encounter she is not impressed. They do pick up the win with Hunico hitting the falling star on Billy Drake for the win but Zelina does not celebrate when the bell is rung.

    Winners via pinfall: Hunico and Kalisto (4:27)

    Both men get their arms raised by the ref but Zelina pulls them away from the ref as she can be heard shouting something to them in Spanish. Whatever it is she looks very angry.

    Corey Graves: Zelina Vega will not settle for 2nd best from her clients and clearly felt the time it took to put away the local competitors was not good enough.

    Booker T: Maybe a kick in the rear is what these two need to get back into the tag team titles picture.

    Corey Graves: It worked for Andrade Cien Almas and look where he is down in NXT.

    As we see Hunico, Kalisto and Zelina Vega walk backstage we cut to an ad break. When we come back from the ad break we hear the music for Damien Sandow hit to a pop from the crowd as he walks to the ring in a robe.

    Michael Cole: As some of you may have heard on WWE.com Baron Corbin broke his leg when he fell out of the ring awkwardly at a house show last week. His current projected time table for return is 6-7 months. We obviously wish him all the best in his recovery.

    Corey Graves: You have to wonder why Damien Sandow is out here as he was meant to take on Baron Corbin tonight but that is no longer happening.

    Damien Sandow pauses in the ring as he looks towards the crowd holding the microphone like he would hold a fine brandy glass.

    Damien Sandow: May I beg your indulgence for just a moment?

    The crowd simmer down for a moment wanting to hear what Damien Sandow has to say.

    Damien Sandow: Since my business with Baron Corbin will have to stay unfinished for the moment I want to set my eyes elsewhere. You see I want another shot at the US title.

    The crowd pop for the idea of Damien Sandow getting another crack at the US title.

    Damien Sandow: I may have come up short last time I faced Samoa Joe but now I have faced him one on one I can see a chink in his armour and I will be able to come up with a plan to defeat him.

    The crowd let out a pop as Damien Sandow smiles before he turns towards the entrance ramp.

    Damien Sandow: So Drake Maverick whether you give me a match against the winner of the US title match tonight or a number one contender's match it does not matter as I will get my hands on the US title.

    Sandow points towards the ramp waiting for Drake Maverick to come out but instead it is Austin Aries who makes his way out to boos from the crowd. He looks very smug as he saunters down to the ring. Sandow does not look impressed as Aries can be seen cockily chewing some gum.

    Austin Aries: You face Joe again? Why should you get a shot over the greatest man whoever lived? I was this close to taking that World title from Sami Zayn but since Drake won't add me to the Summerslam match taking that US title from Samoa Joe is the next best thing.

    Boo from the crowd as Aries once again makes an outrageous claim.

    Austin Aries: So if Drake has any sense it will be me fighting for the US title so get out of my ring!

    Damien Sandow does not look impressed however as he steps forward getting ready to fight when Shinsuke Nakamura's music hits to a massive pop from the crowd! He does his usual antics on the ramp on the way to the ring. Aries does not look impressed whilst Sandow has not taken his eyes off Nakamura. Nakamura slides in the ring with a microphone of his own.

    Shinsuke Nakamura: I think it should be me fighting Samoa Joe for the US title. I have actually beaten Joe before.

    Austin Aries: No one asked you to come out and try to steal the spotlight of a true...

    Shinsuke puts his hand over the microphone of Aries stopping him from speaking.

    Shinsuke Nakamura: How about I give you a knee to the face?

    Austin Aries squares up to Shinsuke Nakamura looking very angry (though he only reaches up to Nakamura's chest) as Damien Sandow watches on. However before a fight can break out Drake Maverick makes his way out to the ring.

    Drake Maverick: OK guys you want a chance to fight for the US title next week on Monday night Raw it will be Austin Aries vs Damien Sandow vs Shinsuke Nakamura in a triple threat to crown the number one contender for the US title!

    All 3 men stand in the ring as they stare each other down in the ring.

    Corey Graves: The greatest man who ever lived, the king of strong style and the intellectual saviour of the masses will clash next week for the right face either Samoa Joe or Bad News Barrett!

    Michael Cole: A big match next week but up next after the ad break we will see the Revival defend their WWE tag team titles as the Dudley Boyz look to become 19 time tag team champions.

    When we come back from the ad break we get a nice pop from the crowd for the legendary tag team the Dudley Boyz! They look very focused as they walk to the ring.

    Booker T: These boys have done it all in the tag team division and you have to argue are one of the best tag team of all time if not the best!

    Corey Graves: They are the most decorated tag team in WWE history but they are facing the top team in the Raw tag team division today. The Dudley Boyz were the top tag team in their time period but they are no longer in their prime!

    Michael Cole: The Dudley's may not be in their prime but they have years of title winning experience to draw upon.

    The Revival make their way out to the ring as they get booed by the crowd. They stand on the top of the ramp looking smug before they clink their titles together. They march to the ring as they trash talk the fans on the way to the ring before joining the Dudleys inside. Dash Wilder starts for the Revival whilst D-Von starts for the Dudley Boyz.

    Match 2: WWE tag team titles: The Revival (c) vs The Dudley Boyz

    The Revival start the match off strong as they use their youth and teamwork to take control of the match isolating D-Von in the corner of the ring away from his partner. However if any team know about tag team tactics it is the Dudley Boyz who are able to get D-Von out of the corner. The longer the match goes on the more the Dudleys start to take control of the match putting the Revival under pressure and even get a few near falls where it looks like we are about to see a title change.

    However realizing their titles are in danger Scott Dawson distracts the ref as he argues about a near fall allowing Dash Wilder to grab one of the title on the outside and whack D-Von with it taking care of him on the outside! Dash Wilder drops the title as the ref turns around to see him sliding in the ring. Both men grab hold of Bubba Ray Dudley lifting him into the air and connect with the Shatter Machine!

    Winners via pinfall and still WWE tag team titles: The Revival (11:25)

    Michael Cole: Once again the Revival steal the victory and escape with their tag team titles!

    Corey Graves: The Revival used their superior teamwork and skills to win. They will do whatever it takes to keep those titles and they proved that again tonight.

    The Revival get their hands raised in the ring to boos from the crowd but as the ref is passing them their titles they don't seem done. They turn to the rising Dudley Boyz and start to lay into them with numerous blows beating down the legendary tag team! More heat for their actions when suddenly we hear the music for the Hardy Boyz to a massive pop from the crowd!

    Booker T: The cavalry are here!

    The Hardy Boyz charge in the ring but The Revival are quick to get out of the ring holding their WWE tag team titles closely to their chest as they look to retreat to the back! The crowd boo the cowardly actions of the Revival as they smirk trash talking the legendary teams in the ring. In the ring the Hardys help the Dudleys up to their feet to a pop from the crowd.

    Michael Cole: You have to wonder what would have happened if the Hardys did not come out to the ring to stop the Revival tonight!

    Corey Graves: Michael I have just heard word that Seth Rollins is on the way to the ring!

    Michael Cole: Well in that case we will be going to a commercial break but when we comeback we will hear from the architect Seth Rollins!

    When we come back from the ad break we hear the music for Seth freakin Rollins as he makes his way out. He does not look in a good mood after what has happened to him the last few weeks. He jumps over the ropes as he looks into the crowd.

    Michael Cole: We are about to find out if Seth Rollins is going to accept the challenge from Kevin Owens last week!

    Seth gets a few chants for his name which brings his first smile since he has come out to the ring before he starts to speak.

    Seth Rollins: So Kevin Owens has started to make the same mistakes I made. You see I made the mistake of putting my career in the hands of HHH and Stephanie McMahon. Doing their bidding when I was better then that.

    Seth looks down to the mat before he starts to speak again.

    Seth Rollins: I hate who I was back then for the most part. I mean beating Roman Reigns was always quite fun.

    Cheap pop from the crowd for the dig at his former rival Roman Reigns.

    Seth Rollins: But even after leaving the authority I proved I could beat him and I won the WWE title. Even if it was a for a short time. But I don't think Kevin Owens is better then that!

    Boos for the mention of Kevin Owens as Seth Rollins looks to carry on.

    Seth Rollins: You will stab people in the back to get whatever you want. Heck I would not be surprised if you one day stab HHH and Stephanie McMahon in the back to get something. But you think you can beat me? That is not happening.

    Cheers from the crowd.

    Seth Rollins: But I am not an idiot. I will agree to match but what is the reward for me when I win? I am a better man then getting pure revenge.

    The crowd seem curious where Seth Rollins is going with this speech as he smiles before Drake Maverick comes out to the ring. Seth Rollins smiles clearly expecting this.

    Corey Graves: What is Drake Maverick doing out here?

    Michael Cole: Well he is the Raw general manager.

    Seth Rollins: Hello Drake right on cue. I have spoke with Drake and he has faith in me as a top superstar on this brand. So we spoke to each other during the week and Drake is happy to put his job in my hands on one condition. When I win Stephanie McMahon has to quit as Raw commissioner!

    Massive pop from the crowd for the prospect of Stephanie McMahon being gone from Monday Night Raw!

    Drake Maverick: You see I want to run this show my way and look what happened to Mick Foley throughout his run with the authority constantly getting involved. So Stephanie you want me gone? Those are the terms!

    As Drake finishes that line we hear the music for Kevin Owens getting a decent amount of heat. However it gets towards nuclear levels as Stephanie McMahon makes her way to the ring by his side. He gets in the ring fairly quickly as he steps towards Seth Rollins who looks ready for a fight!

    Kevin Owens: That is fine because I will destroy you like I did at Vengeance and 2 weeks ago.

    Stephanie McMahon: Did you not learn in all of your time with us Seth Rollins that you can never get rid of the authority? Kevin Owens will destroy you whilst I watch on from ringside.

    That line makes Seth Rollins do his signature laugh which confuses Stephanie.

    Stephanie McMahon: What is so funny?

    Seth Rollins: You think I don't remember you being a nuisance at Backlash? I mean I still won because I surpassed your husband long ago!

    This gets an OHHHHHH reaction from the crowd as Seth Rollins smirks once again before he carries on.

    Seth Rollins: However I am a smart man and I know how tough Kevin Owens is so I have asked someone to support me at ringside so I don't have the same issues to deal with.

    Seth Rollins points towards the ramp when BECKY LYNCH makes her way out to the ring to a good pop from the crowd! She poses on the ramp enjoying the reaction from the fans.

    Michael Cole: Becky Lynch you have to remember has had issues with Stephanie McMahon in the last couple of months and that might have tipped the scale for her to choose to help Seth Rollins at Summerslam.

    Corey Graves: Becky should be focusing on her Women title match in the main event and not out here picking fights with one of her bosses!

    Becky gets in the ring as she gives Seth Rollins a bro fist before Drake happily passes her a microphone.

    Becky Lynch: Stephanie you have been treating me and other superstars like trash for too long! So when my friend Seth Rollins approached me wanting that straight fire to burn it down I was more then happy to help! You see tonight I will take that Women's title from Summer Rae and then at Summerslam if you get involved I will break your arm!

    Massive pop from the crowd for the prospect of Becky Lynch breaking the arm of Stephanie McMahon! Stephanie for the first time in a long time sells what looks like fear? However the look quickly changes as she responds by slapping Becky Lynch in the face! Becky Lynch holds her face before she jumps onto the Stephanie McMahon laying into the commissioner of Monday night Raw!

    Corey Graves: You can't attack your boss!

    Booker T: Stephanie struck her first and Becky ain't taking that from no one!

    Becky is really laying into Stephanie McMahon when Kevin Owens drags Becky Lynch off Stephanie McMahon stopping her from doing any more damage!However as he does Becky catches him with an elbow to the face sending him back. Owens grabs her by the hair to massive boos from the crowd but Rollins makes the save with a dropkick to the face!

    This sends Kevin Owens over the top rope and out of the ring. Seth meanwhile makes sure Bekcy Lynch is OK as it seems clear she is fine thanking Seth for the back up! Stephanie McMahon retreats out of the ring joining Kevin Owens as they retreat up the ramp looking furious!

    Michael Cole: Massive stakes at Summerslam as Seth Rollins looks to remove the authority from power for good!

    Corey Graves: Drake Maverick is encouraging his superstars to attack their boss, what despicable actions.

    Booker T: I had to work under Stephanie McMahon as part of the invasion and I regularly wanted to sock her in the mouth sucka!

    Drake Maverick, Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch stand tall in the ring as we go to an ad break! When we come back we hear the music of Bad News Barrett hit to a pop from the crowd as he looks to become US champion and defeat the monstrous Samoa Joe!

    Booker T: Samoa Joe I am afraid I have some bad news!

    Corey Graves: Booker if I pay you $1000 will you never do that impression again?

    As those two are talking we see the US champion run out and attack Barrett from behind laying into him! He starts throwing Barrett into the barricade wall as he looks to inflict as much damage as possible.

    Michael Cole: Cheap shot before the US title match by Samoa Joe!

    Corey Graves: This is why you don't piss the champion off!

    Samoa Joe picks up Barrett as he throws him into the ring. He takes off the US title as he passes it to the ref before he starts laying into Barrett again. The ref tries to tell him off but Joe gets in his face telling him to ring the bell! The scared ref reluctantly agrees and the US title match is under way!

    Match 3: US title match: Samoa Joe (c) vs Bad News Barrett

    Barrett struggles to get to his feet thanks to the pre-match attack by Samoa Joe. Barrett has a couple of hope shots using his brawling capabilities to fight back. However in the end the beat down and the strength of Samoa Joe is too much to overcome as Joe is able to put away Barrett with the Coquina clutch forcing Barrett to tap out to the lethal hold!

    Winner via submission and still US champion: Samoa Joe (4:12)

    Michael Cole: Samoa Joe once again retains his US title here against Bad News Barrett.

    Booker T: Barrett could not overcome the pre-match assault to pick up the win.

    Corey Graves: Samoa Joe is damn near unstoppable as US champion. This is why you don't annoy the champion because he will make the beating worse!

    Samoa Joe stands tall in the ring when we cut to the backstage area as Mustafa Ali is hanging out backstage working out when he is approached by Jinder Mahal and the Singh brothers. Ali looks ready for a fight but only Jinder steps forward.

    Jinder Mahal: It is fine we are not here to fight. We can beat you up anytime. We came to warn you to stay out of my way. You are a naïve little boy if you think these fans truly like you.

    Mustafa Ali: Is that so?

    Jinder Mahal: These fans boo me because I am different. They boo them because they are different. One day they will turn on you and show their true colours.

    Mustafa Ali takes a moment to think about what Jinder Mahal is saying.

    Jinder Mahal: You should join us. Together we can take over this show. I mean look what happened to your friend Sheamus.

    Mustafa Ali: I will pass. I saw what happened to my friend Sheamus but he will be back and stronger then ever. You think these people hate you because you are different? Nah they hate you because you are an asshole.

    Mustafa Ali walks off elsewhere leaving the Indian nightmares stood there looking annoyed at their offer being turned down. We cut to an ad break but when we come back we hear the music for someone who we would normal see on Monday night Raw Natayla!

    Michael Cole: Well this is big news. I am hearing word from backstage that Drake Maverick and Shane McMahon has discussion over the weekends and made a trade. Natayla is now part of the Monday night Raw roster and Emma has joined the Smackdown Live roster!

    Corey Graves: Natayla is a former Women's champion and a member of the hart family. A hell of an addition to the Raw's women division.

    Natayla gets in the ring getting a fairly muted reaction with a few of the crowd booing whilst some cheer her due to the shock of seeing her on Monday night Raw again so soon after she joined Smackdown Live. She stands in the ring as she gets ready for his first match back. We hear the music for Alicia Fox hit to a fairly muted reaction herself as she looks to pick up a rare win on Monday night Raw. Both women lock up in the center of the ring and this match is underway.

    Match 4: Natayla vs Alicia Fox

    A decent match as Alicia Fox is able to hold her own for most of it but Natayla is too much for Alicia Fox to overcome as she locks in the sharpshooter. Alicia Fox tries to escape but in the end she is forced to tap out!

    Winner via submission: Natayla (6:40)

    After the match is over Natayla has her hand raised by the referee. She makes her way over to the rising Alicia Fox as she offers her a handshake. Fox thinks about it before she shakes hands with Natayla.

    Michael Cole: Nice display of sportsmanship there from Natayla.

    We cut to the backstage area as Mike Rome can be seen walking towards the medical room when the World champion Sami Zayn walks out to a pop from the crowd!

    Mike Rome: Sami Zayn how are you feeling after that beating you received from the monster among men Braun Strowman?

    Sami Zayn: Not great if I am honest but I am not going to let him keep me down. You think he is the first person I have had to fight who is bigger and stronger then me? I am called the underdog from the underground for a reason and at Summerslam I will fight with all my heart to keep this title.

    Mike Rome: Sami another question....

    As Mike Rome says that line Kevin Owens walks onto the scene looking annoyed as Sami Zayn's focus turns to his former best friend and eternal rival Kevin Owens. Mike Rome looks a little worried as Kevin Owens walks towards him.

    Kevin Owens: Interview time is over Matthew Turin.

    Mike does not even bother correcting Kevin Owens on what his name is and leaves the area as Owens walks towards the unflinching Sami Zayn.

    Kevin Owens: After I get rid of Seth Rollins and Drake Maverick I can coming for that title. So if you survive Braun Strowman I will take that title from you just like I took the NXT title.

    Owens walks off smirking as Sami Zayn looks annoyed. We cut to an ad break after that backstage segment. We come back from the ad break as we focus on the Raw commentary table.

    Corey Graves: Sami Zayn is facing his greatest challenge yet in the monster among men but he may have a different kind of monster coming for his title if he wins at Summerslam.

    As he says that we hear the music for Brian Kendrick as he walks to the ring ahead of his Cruiserweight title match with Neville. He looks laser focused on winning the title tonight.

    Booker T: This is a big night for Brian Kendrick. I know the pleasure of winning multiple titles and I know the hunger of wanting to win your first guys.

    Michael Cole: Well he faces the king of the Cruiserweights whose head has been focused on Ciampa.

    Corey Graves: Which is exactly what Kendrick wants from Neville. If he underestimates him he will lose his title. Neville needs to focus on the wily veteran or he will lose his throne.

    Neville makes his way out to the ring looking very angry. He has the Cruiserweight title on his shoulder as he joins Brian Kendrick in the ring. Noticeably he looks towards the entrance ramp expecting Tommaso Ciampa to make his presence felt but no such arrival as the ref rings the bell and we are underway!

    Match 5: Cruiserweight title match: Neville (c) vs Brian Kendrick

    Throughout the match Neville can be seen to not be 100% focused on his opponent looking towards the entrance ramp during his periods of control and shouting abuse at Ciampa who is not there. This allows Brian Kendrick to take control on a couple of occasions. In the finish for the match Kendrick goes for the captain's hook but Neville counters, locking in the rings of Saturn. He keeps it locked in tight as Kendrick tries to escape but in the end he has to tap out!

    Winner via pinfall and still Cruiserweight champion: Neville (13:12)

    Neville keeps it on for an extra few seconds after the match before he tosses down Brian Kendrick. Neville gets his arm raised by the ref as he sells the impact that match had on him.

    Michael Cole: A big win for the Cruiserweight champion tonight as he overcame Brian Kendrick.

    Corey Graves: But you have to wonder what is next on the horizon for Neville with the psycho killer waiting to challenge for the title next.

    Neville makes his way onto the ramp as he lifts the Cruiserweight title in the air celebrating when Tommaso Ciampa comes out and attacks him from behind! He grabs hold of Neville on the ramp before he hits him with a Project Cimapa. Cimapa lets out a smug smirk.

    Booker T: There is no need for that!

    Corey Graves: Guys I think he is coming this way!

    Corey is right as Cimapa gets in Micheal Cole's face. He can be heard off mic shouting “Tell everyone that I will be using my title shot at Summerslam”. Micheal Cole nods looking very scared as Ciampa makes his way back towards Neville taking his head off with a running knee!

    Michael Cole: As um Ciampa just said he will be fighting for the Cruiserweight title at Summerslam!

    Tommaso Ciampa poses over the fallen and beaten down Neville to boos from the crowd as we cut to an ad break. When we come back we see Cody Rhodes backstage looking in a very bad mood. We hear the door open as we see a very happy and smiling R-Truth approaching Cody. We also see Elias walking out of the room holding his guitar.

    R-Truth: Yo dawg what has been happening with you?

    Cody Rhodes ignores him staring off into the distance not wanting to listen to his brothers tag team partner.

    R-Truth: You have been attacking referees and punching walls. The truth is even your brother has to be worried about you.

    Cody Rhodes head tilts at that point staring at R-Truth.

    Cody Rhodes: What did you say?

    R-Truth: Listen dawg your brother would not want this. Goldust would not want this.

    Cody takes a moment to pauses as he stands up joining R-Truth on his feet.

    Cody Rhodes: You know what R-Truth you are right. Thanks man.

    Cody goes to hugs R-Truth who accepts it. R-Truth goes to leave when Cody attacks him from behind before he throws R-Truth into the wall! He batters R-Truth on the floor as he can be heard shouting “you don't get to tell me about my family”. Cody drags R-Truth up off the floor before he plants him with a Cross Rhodes. Cody gets up leaving R-Truth laid out as he walks off elsewhere backstage. We cut to the ring as we can see the Ascension waiting in the ring.

    Booker T: Cody Rhodes is acting very crazy and worrying at the moment.

    Corey Graves: To be honest if that moron R-Truth tried to talk “sense” into me I would beat him up as well.

    We then hear the music for the True Gentleman hit to a decent pop from the crowd. Aiden English and Jack Gallagher stand next to the fans before they join the Ascension in the ring. They offer the pair a handshake but their offer gets turned down fairly quickly.

    Match 6: True Gentleman vs The Ascension

    The Ascension show why they were the longest reigning tag team champions in NXT history as they work over the True Gentleman. However in the end the two gentleman pick up the win with That's a wrap!

    Winners via pinfall: True Gentleman (6:51)

    Michael Cole: A nice win for the True Gentleman here!

    Booker T: If they pick up a few more wins like that and they may be in tag team titles contention soon.

    Speaking of the tag team titles picture we cut backstage to see the Dudleys in the back when they are approached by Charly Caruso for an interview.

    Charly Caruso: Dudleys you lost earlier tonight after a belt shot from the Revival. What are your plans for the future?

    D-Von Dudley: We ain't going to say we have not done the same or we would not have done the same. We have done every dirty trick in the book. Heck we wrote the book on tag team wrestling.

    Bubba Ray Dudley: However if they think that we are going to walk away to the retirement home then they are more stupid then they look.

    D-Von Dudley: Oh testify brother. We now know the level we are fighting on and if the Revival want to play dirty we can play dirty.

    Charly Caruso: And what do you make of the Hardy Boyz making the save?

    Before they can answer we see the Hardys walk onto the scene.

    Jeff Hardy: Yes what do you guys think about us making the save?

    Bubba Ray Dudley: We don't need your pity or help.

    Matt Hardy: Looks like you did or you would have been deleted!

    D-Von Dudley: You what?

    Jeff Hardy: Listen we want a rematch after what happened to us too and if we have to go through you to get it we will.

    Both teams stare each other down as the tension is clear between the two legendary tag teams. We cut back towards the ring as we hear the music for the boss Sasha Banks hit to boos from the crowd.

    Corey Graves: It's BOSS time!

    Michael Cole: Well Sasha Banks last week found out that she will have to earn her rematch for the Women's title after attacking the general manager before Money in the Bank.

    Corey Graves: Whilst I get punishing her for those actions, she is one of the best superstars on the roster and should get a rematch for her Women's title!

    Sasha walks around the ring listening to the boos from the crowd not really caring what the fans have to say as she goes to speak.

    Sasha Banks: I have been waiting for nearly the whole show to find out who I am beating at Summerslam. Now that is wasting the Boss's time so I have come out here to demand my opponent for Summerslam come out here right now!

    Sasha Banks stands in the ring waiting for someone to come out. It takes awhile as the Boss is clearly impatient when the music for Charlotte Flair hits to a massive pop from the crowd!

    Booker T: Oh my god this is the shucky quack quack moment of the show for me guys. We are getting a rematch from last years Summerslam!

    Corey Graves: Sasha Banks last year was able to dethrone the queen last year at Summerslam and end Charlotte's long reign on the top of the Women's division. Sasha will be looking to defeat her again to get another shot at the Women's title.

    Charlotte gets in the ring joining Sasha Banks inside the ring as the two women stand across the ring from each other. Both women stand there for a good 20 seconds before Sasha goes to speak first.

    Sasha Banks: So I have to beat you like I did last year? Feels like I am backtracking.

    Charlotte: Cute. Last year I was weak and relying too much on someone else to support me. I have a flair for the gold and I want my title back!

    Sasha Banks: Your title? That is my title and I only lost it due to wanting to make Bayley suffer. As soon as I beat you I will destroy the BFF's and become a 3 time women's champion.

    Charlotte: That won't be happening. The only reason you have been on top of the women's division is because I was out injured. Now that the queen is back your time at the top is over because a boss is nothing compared to a queen.

    Sasha looks furious at that line as she goes to slap Charlotte but she is able to catch her hand stopping her! Charlotte connects with a boot to the gut and gets ready to lay into Sasha Banks but she escapes rolling under the ropes and retreating to the back!

    Michael Cole: The queen is well and truly back!

    Corey Graves: She may have gained the upper hand tonight but the Boss always rises to the occasion and will look to repeat her performance at last years Summerslam!

    Booker T: Well speaking of the Women's title picture we will see Summer Rae defend her title against Ember Moon and Becky Lynch up next in the main event of the show!

    Michael Cole: And that will after this commercial break so don't go anywhere!

    When we come back from the ad break we hear the music for Ember Moon hit to a decent pop from the crowd. She pulls down the hood before smiling to the crowd as she makes her way to the ring.

    Booker T: This has to be the biggest match of Ember Moon's career tonight!

    Corey Graves: She fought the undefeated Asuka in NXT for the women's title but tonight she is in the main event of Monday night Raw with the chance to become Women champion for the first time in WWE.

    As she stands in the ring playing to the fans, the cheers only get louder as Becky Lynch makes her way out. The crowd are cheering her more then usual after she attacked the commissioner of Monday night Raw earlier on in the show. She slaps hands with the fans before joining her ally in recent times Ember Moon in the ring.

    Michael Cole: Becky Lynch has come so close to winning the Women's title on a number of occasions in the last few years but always seems to be the bridesmaid never the bride.

    Booker T: Well tonight will be as good as a chance as any to win the Women's title.

    The last person to make their way out to the ring is the current champion Summer Rae who is without her BFF's associates as she holds the Women's title in the air looking slightly less cocky then usual.

    Booker T: Summer Rae has no friends out here tonight as she is forced to defend that title with Tamina and Carmella backstage.

    Corey Graves: This is so unfair she could lose the title without being pinned. No wonder Stephanie McMahon wants her husband back when Drake Maverick is making these kind of decisions.

    All the 3 women stand in the ring as the ref raises the title in the air during the usual announcements before this match gets underway.

    Main Event: Women's title match: Summer Rae (c) vs Ember Moon vs BeckyLynch

    At the start of the match Summer Rae tries to get Ember Moon and Becky Lynch to focus on each other but it does not work as they choose to team up on her in the opening stages. Once that is out of the way Becky and Ember go head to head with a lot more aggression then they showed last week when facing each now the title is on the line.Summer Rae starts to get back involved after the 6 minute mark with all 3 women look like they are going to come close to winning.

    However in the closing stages Stephanie McMahon walks out to the ringside area. Becky notices but stays focused on winning the match. Becky is able to take care of Summer Rae sending her to the outside before hitting the Bex-ploder on Ember Moon. Becky makes the cover but before only gets a 2 count as Stephanie McMahon pulls the ref out of the ring.

    Becky is confused why there is no 3 count as she looks out of the ring and see what has happened. Becky gives chase looking to get her hands on Stephanie McMahon who has just screwed her. Meanwhile Ember is just coming to when Summer Rae sneaks into the ring and hits the Summer Crush. She makes the cover picking up the win and holding onto her title!

    Winner via pinfall and still Women's champion: Summer Rae (10:19)

    Becky is still giving chase to Stephanie McMahon as both women disappear through the back!

    Michael Cole: Stephanie McMahon just screwed Becky Lynch out of becoming Women's champion!

    Corey Graves: Becky got what she deserved for messing with a McMahon they always get their pound of flesh

    Summer Rae celebrates in the ring as she is soon joined by her fellow BFF's Carmella and Tamina who start to celebrate with her. However they seethe rising Ember Moon.

    Booker T: This ain't going to end well...

    All 3 women surround Ember Moon as they get ready to lay into until...



    BAYLEY IS BACK!

    She has her left arm still in a cast but in the other hand she has a kendo stick!

    Michael Cole: Bayley is back early!

    She charges down towards the ring as Carmella goes to meet her first but gets taken down with a kendo stick shot to the chest before she gets caned in the head dropping her to the mat. Tamina runs out next but she gets taken down with the kendo stick here as Bayley is going ham on the BFF's!

    Bayley slides in the ring ready to take down Summer Rae but she rolls out of the ring holding her Women title as she looks to get out of dodge.Ember is coming to in the ring as Bayley as her to hold the kendo stick so she can speak as she grabs a microphone.

    Bayley: My arm may not be full healed but it will be in 4 weeks time at Summerslam when I take my title back!

    Bayley throws the microphone down as she stands tall in the ring message sent to the BFF's as Raw starts to fade to black!

    Austin Aries

    SD Live Re: WWE: A Different Future


    July 11th:
    San Antonio, Texas


    We start the first Smackdown Live after the Great American Bash with a video package recapping the main event of the show. We see Drew McIntyre becoming the new IC champion and Reigns defeating Cesaro but the main focus is on the Wyatt Family. It shows them ruining the World tag team titles match between American Alpha and the New Day, Sarah Logan becoming the Amazonian champion, The Wyatt Family defeating the Club and lastly Bray Wyatt retaining his WWE title against Dean Ambrose. We cut to the ring as the camera focuses on the commentary desk.

    Mauro Ranallo: Welcome to Smackdown Live as we are two nights removed from the Great American Bash!

    Byron Saxton: And as you can see it is was a hell of a night for the Wyatt family.

    Tom Phillips: That was not all that happened on Sunday as we have footage of an incident that took place after the Club had lost to the Wyatt Family.

    We cut to a video package as we can see AJ Styles storming through the back with Luke Gallows next to him as he can seen trying to stop him.

    Luke Gallows: AJ,AJ stop I know you are angry but this is not going to solve anything!

    AJ looks at his friend before pushing past his friend and slams open a door which is labelled the Club's locker room. We see Karl Anderson in there talking to his leader Finn Balor. However it quickly breaks down as AJ Styles storms into the room and jumps on Finn Balor laying into him with numerous punches on the sofa.

    Both men starting brawling around the room trashing the place as they look to batter the hell out of each other! Gallows and Anderson are trying to keep them apart but they are having no luck.

    Luke Gallows: Hey can some of you nerds out there help with this!

    We see a bunch of low carders run into the room as they start to hold the two men apart. As this is going on Shane McMahon walks into the room!

    Shane McMahon: What the hell is going in here?

    Both men are still almost foaming at the mouth trying to break free as Finn looks to speak.

    Finn Balor: How about AJ gets lost?

    AJ has had more then enough of Finn as breaks free for a moment. He swings for Finn but nearly catches Shane in the head!

    Shane McMahon: Watch it! Now calm down. Both of you calm down

    AJ Styles: To think I was worried about the handicap of being down a man but we would have been better off just the 3 of us!

    That sets off Finn Balor this time who tries to break free and clock AJ Styles in the face. However he is stopped fairly quickly by the people in the room as Shane McMahon has had enough!

    Shane McMahon: Right you two want to fight so bad. At Summerslam it will be AJ Styles vs Finn Balor and you two can settle this in the ring!

    Both men stare at each other wanting to settle this now but they will have to wait till 4 weeks time to get a piece of each other as some of the men help take Finn Balor out of the room whilst the rest keep AJ Styles in the room. We cut back the commentary team after seeing that footage from last night.

    Mauro Ranallo: It looks like the Club are having their own version of a Civil war.

    Byron Saxton: You have to wonder what we will see when these two men collide at Summerslam as it is clear those two men hate each other!

    Tom Phillips: Well I am hearing word from backstage we will get to hear from both men later on in the show as they will be guests on Miz TV!

    As they say that line we hear the music for Shane McMahon hit to a pop from the crowd as the Smackdown Live commissioner makes his way out to the ring with a microphone in one hand. He looks fairly serious as he chooses not to do his usual shuffle for the crowd. He looks towards the fans as he gets ready to speak.

    Shane McMahon: As you can see I have already made one match official for Summerslam as AJ Styles will take on the rock and rolla Finn Balor!

    Pop from the fans for the exciting match up as Shane smiles.

    Shane McMahon: Now onto less exciting news. Dean Ambrose due to the injuries he suffered last night will not be here tonight.

    Boos from the crowd for that news as Shane McMahon looks to carry on.

    Shane McMahon: He will however be back next week. However what I need to do now is speak to the Wyatt Family.

    Shane stands in the ring waiting for the Wyatt Family and he does not have to wait long as the lights go out!

    Bray Wyatt: San Antonio we are here!

    The Wyatts make their way out to the ring with Bray Wyatt leading the way holding the WWE title in one hand and the lantern in the other hand.Meanwhile we can see Sarah Logan holding onto her new Amazonian title with a sinister smirk on her face. The other Wyatts follow behind their leader who has got some scars on his arms after the thumb-tacks he was forced to go through last night. All 6 men stand in the ring as Shane does not seem worried even if he should be.

    Shane McMahon: Thank you for joining me out here Bray.

    The WWE champion lets out a sinister laugh.

    Shane McMahon: What is so funny?

    Bray Wyatt: The illusion of power that weak men cling to. Whilst I have this title I have the power. Whilst she has that title she has the power. We run this show and everyone should run in fear or join us.

    At that point Ziggler and Kane bow their heads almost like they are in a trance which creeps Shane McMahon out a bit before he starts to speak.

    Shane McMahon: Let me stop you right there. I run this show and your actions we need to talk about. Now I can handle what you did to Dean Ambrose as that was in a sanctioned match even if it was barbaric. However Sarah Logan what you did to Paige...

    Sarah steps forward staring right into the eyes of Shane unnerving him as she goes to respond.

    Sarah Logan: What I did was a work of art. I made her into my own beautiful masterpiece. I will be living in the nightmares of Paige for the next few weeks.

    Shane McMahon: Well we will see about that as next week you will putting your newly won Amazonian title on the line against her!

    Sarah Logan does not seem fazed and almost relishes the chance to face Paige once again next week. Shane turns back towards Bray Wyatt as he looks at him dead in the eyes.

    Shane McMahon: Speaking of challengers for titles. Bray you will be facing John Cena1 on 1 at Summerslam.

    Bray does not react at first before he has a massive grin on his face excited at the prospect of facing the returning John Cena. Shane at this point looks towards the other 4 men who have not spoke, Luke Harper, Dolph Ziggler, Kane and Erick Rowan.

    Shane McMahon: If you interrupt one of my pay-per-view title matches like that again there will be grave consequences!

    Shane composes himself before speaking again.

    Shane McMahon: So since the match got ruined at the Great American Bash we will have that match happen again in 4 weeks time at Summerslam.

    A pop from the crowd excited at the prospect of seeing American Alpha defend their tag team titles against the New Day at Summerslam. Shane though is not done there as he looks to carry on.

    Shane McMahon: However both teams are itching to get a piece of you so next week in our main event it will be a massive 10 man tag as American Alpha and the New Day will team up to take on all of you. But that wasn't the only match you ruined last week? You ruined my exhibition match between Simon Gotch and Darren Young. Well up next after this break I will give them another chance in tag team action against any two of you.You can decide that now.

    Shane McMahon leaves the ring as Bray can be seen talking to his disciples about who will face off against Simon Gotch and Darren Young after the commercial break.

    Mauro Ranallo: Big announcements by the Smackdown Live general manager as we now know two more of the matches for Summerslam.

    Byron Saxon: And when we come back from the commercial break we will see two members of the Wyatt Family in action against Simon Gotch and Darren Young!

    When we come back we can see Dolph Ziggler and Luke Harper stood in the ring ready for this match. The other members of the Wyatt Family wait at ringside as the ref rings the bell starting this match.

    Match 1: Simon Gotch and Darren Young vs Dolph Ziggler and Luke Harper w/The Wyatt Family

    This is a short match with Simon Gotch and Darren Young looking fired up but there is no cohesion throughout the encounter whilst Harper and Ziggler are starting to gel as a tag team. Harper picks up the win for the team just like he did at the Great American Bash with the Discuss clothesline for the three count!

    Winners via pinfall: The Wyatt Family (4:18)

    Tom Phillips: A good performance by the Wyatt Family once again showing their growing power on Smackdown Live.

    The Wyatts stand tall in the ring with Bray Wyatt and Sarah Logan stand front and center with their titles in the air to boos from the crowd as we cut to a TV backstage where we see American Alpha and the New Day stood next to each other having just watched that encounter.

    Jason Jordan: So that is what we are up against.

    Chad Gable: That is fine because we defeated the Wyatts earlier this year and we will do it again!

    Big E: And we are going to help.

    Kofi Kingston: Yeah our boy Xaiver is no longer afraid of them right Xaiver?

    Xavier does not answer straight away as he turns a bit away from the others before speaking.

    Xaiver Woods: I am still afraid but truly brave men face their fears. I am ready to fight them but I know how much of a threat they are.

    ???: What a NERD!

    As if there was not enough people in the room Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows walk into shot looking very smug as all 5 men look confused.

    Karl Anderson: When are we getting the title shot we deserve after saving you guys?

    Neither team look impressed but it is Chad Gable who steps forward to speak.

    Chad Gable: Thanks for the help last week but how about you go back to looking after your leader and his friend?

    This seems to strike a nerve,as American Alpha leave the room. The New Day can be seen smirking as Karl Anderson snaps at the three men.

    Karl Anderson: You think that was funny?

    Big E: Yeah we did. Anyway keep an eye on the main event next week as we will show you how to beat the Wyatt Family.

    The New Day walk off themselves leaving the Club stood their fuming as we cut to an ad break. When we come back from the ad break we see Rich Swann stood in the ring ready for a match. The crowd quickly start booing though when they hear the music for Mojo Rawley hit as he makes his way to the ring!

    Mauro Ranallo: The hype man two nights ago came up short in the hunt for the IC title but will be looking to pick up the win tonight!

    Byron Saxton: Mojo fell victim to the chaos of that match with Drew McIntyre emerging as the new IC champion.

    Tom Phillips: And we will be seeing him in action later tonight against another man who fought in that encounter Nick Aldis!

    Mojo looks very annoyed as the ref rings the bell getting this match underway!

    Match 2: Mojo Rawley vs Rich Swann

    Mojo controls the match from the early stages as he uses his power to wear down the Cruiserweight. Rich Swann meanwhile tries to use his superior speed to get back into the match. However in the end it is not enough as Mojo is able to hit him with the Hyper Driver!

    Winner via pinfall: Mojo Rawley (5:07)

    Tom Phillips: An impressive performance by Mojo Rawley here tonight.

    Mojo stands in the ring celebrating when...



    Zack Ryder is back!

    Mauro Ranallo: THE BROSKI IS BACK!

    Zack Ryder sprints into the ring as he looks for a measure of payback on his former tag team partner Mojo Rawley laying into him with a number of blows to the head! He pounds on Mojo before he gets him in the corner. He poses for the crowd before he connects with the Broski boot! Mojo falls out of the corner as he starts to stumble to his feet as Zack gets ready to connect with the Rough Ryder but Mojo rolls under the bottom rope to boos from the crowd!

    Byron Saxton: Mojo fleeing like the coward he is.

    Zack Ryder invites him back into the ring but Mojo waves him off as he walks towards the back clearly wanting no part of the returning Zack Ryder. Zack stands in the ring posing for the fans soaking in the positive reaction as we cut to the backstage area to see Kassius Ohno and Cesaro backstage in a locker room talking to each other.

    Kassius Ohno: Listen I know you are disappointed with your loss but you were so close to picking up the win.

    Cesaro: I keep on getting so close. I made fun of Sami Zayn for it but I am starting to think it was more true for me.

    Kassius Ohno: There will be another opportunity. You are one of the best wrestlers in the world.

    Cesaro: Easy for you to be positive. You did not have to break a sweat!

    Kassius smirks before he responds.

    Kassius Ohno: Hey there is a reason I was called the knockout kid! Come on lets go I know what will cheer you up.

    Kassius Ohno walks out of the door when Tyler Breeze who is walking backwards bumps into him. As we can see he has his signature selfie stick in hand.

    Tyler Breeze: Watch where you are going uggo!

    Kassius Ohno: What did you say?

    Kassius raises his fist in air ready for a fight when Fandango walks into shot as he puts his shoulder around Tyler Breeze.

    Fandango: Come on it is not worth it. We are winners and these two men are losers.

    Breezedango walk off as Cesaro shakes his head. Both men stare at Breezedango walking down the hallway as we cut to a different locker room backstage. This one however contains Dana Brooke who is working out.As she is doing that we see new Smackdown Live superstar Emma walk into the room wearing her shades.

    Emma: Hello Dana.

    Dana Brooke looks around to see her friend in the room but seems wary.

    Dana Brooke: Hey Emma, listen I know we worked together a lot on Monday night Raw but I want this to be a new start and to stand on my own.

    Emma: No that is fine I just wanted to let you know as your friend I have your back.

    Emma offers Dana a hug which she agrees to as the show goes to an ad break. When we come back from the ad break we hear the music for the one man band Heath Slater make his way to the ring wearing one of his I got kids shirt. He looks in good mood after not being on the show for a while.

    Tom Phillips: Heath Slater has a big opportunity here as he will be taking on Roman Reigns next in singles competition.

    Roman Reigns makes his way out to boos from the crowd as the cocky Big Dawg walks to the ring not even giving the fans the pleasure.

    Mauro Ranallo: Roman Reigns picked up the win against a very game Cesaro last night as he was pushed to the very limit.

    Match 3: Roman Reigns vs Heath Slater

    Reigns starts the match totally dismissing Heath Slater but this leads to Slater taking control in the early stages and stunning Roman Reigns.Reigns at that point starts to get annoyed as he lays into Heath Slater beating him down before he puts him away with the Crucifix powerbomb.

    Winner via pinfall: Roman Reigns (6:23)

    Byron Saxton: An impressive win for Roman Reigns here tonight!

    ???: Oh Reigns

    Roman Reigns who was celebrating in the ring turns around to see Chris Jericho's face appearing on the titantron. Reigns looks very annoyed to see the star who made his return last night whilst Jericho laughs.

    Chris Jericho: Don't worry Roman I am not there tonight or you would be added to the list!

    Pop from the crowd as Chris Jericho looks to carry on.

    Chris Jericho: You thought this was your show? You thought you got rid of me? Smackdown Live is my show as is any show I appear on.

    Massive pop from the crowd but Roman Reigns grabs a microphone from someone at ringside.

    Roman Reigns: You may have the love of these foolish people but whilst I am on Smackdo....

    Chris Jericho: WOULD YOU PLEASE SHUT THE HELL UP!

    Massive pop for the old catchphrase as Roman Reigns looks furious in the ring.

    Chris Jericho: No one here wants to hear you talk. They want to see me kick your ass.So I spoke with Shane McMahon and at Summerslam you will step into the ring with me and you will never EVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR BE THE SAME AGAIN!

    Roman Reigns: That is fine Chris. Hide behind your silly catchphrases, your list because at Summerslam I will remove you from the WWE and crush these fans dreams once again. BELIEVE DAT!

    Roman throws the microphone to the mat as we cut to an ad break with that massive Summerslam match set up. When we come back from the ad break we can see the ring is all set up ready for Miz TV. The Miz makes his way out to the ring and he is followed by his miztourage getting boos from the crowd. Breezedango are in their own world however taking selfies as they make their way to the ring.

    Mauro Ranallo: The most must-see show is back tonight! We will get to hear from the Phenomenal One and the True Rock and Rolla!

    Breezedango take a seat on two of the chairs as The Miz sits on the chair in front of the pair as he gets ready to speak.

    The Miz: Welcome to the most must-see show in all of sports-entertainment with your future WWE champion The Miz!

    The crowd boos the Miz but he smiles as he holds the briefcase up getting Breezedango to take a selfie with him.

    The Miz: Two times I have won this briefcase. Something that only one other person has done and he ran away!

    Massive boos from the crowd for the dig at CM Punk as Miz carries on.

    The Miz: Ah don't worry guys I wasn't on about Daniel Bryan!

    Even more boos for the Miz as he looks as cocky as ever before he looks to carry on.

    The Miz: However tonight is not about me. Tonight is about the civil war that is gripping the WWE as the Club falls apart at the seems! Now I know how hard it is to lead a group of great talents. So I want to speak to both men to find out what caused them to come to blows. So please welcome my first guest AJ Styles!

    The music for the Phenomenal one AJ Styles hits to a pop from the crowd as he walks down to the ring clearly still heated after what happened last night not even looking at the fans as he slides into the ring joining the Miz. Breeze offers him a microphone which he snatches from his hand.

    The Miz: Have a seat AJ.

    AJ Styles: I will stand thanks Miz.

    AJ is pacing around the ring as Miz seems wary off the fiery AJ before he starts talking again.

    The Miz: OK well that is fine. I will introduce my second guest on Miz TV the self-proclaimed rock and rolla Finn Balor!

    Finn Balor makes his way out to a mixed reaction. Just like AJ he looks angry and slides into the ring choosing to not take a seat getting head to head with AJ as both men look ready to explode!

    Byron Saxton: Things could be about to kick off here!

    Breezedango spring to action bringing the two men apart as the crowd boo the pair for stopping the two men from going at it. The Miz meanwhile turns to the fans raising his hand into the air.

    The Miz: Hey when my hand goes up your mouths go shut!

    Cheap heat for the Miz but it is effective as he looks to carry on. The Miz takes a seat on his chair whilst both men stand apart from each other as Breezedango back off a bit trusting the two men not to fight.

    The Miz: So I am going to ask my first question to AJ Styles. How does it feel to fall short when facing off against the Wyatt family once again?

    AJ looks to Miz as he walks forward towards the A-lister as once again Breezedango are quick to rise to their feet ready to step in and protect their leader in case things get out of hand.

    AJ Styles: Are you trying to wind me up Miz? How do you think I feel? I lost because this guy has an ego some how bigger then yours?

    Finn Balor: No we lost because of you! I would have lead my boys to victory without but you always have to take things away from me don't you AJ?

    The Miz: That is a good point raised by Finn. You did convince his friends to turn away from him in Japan.

    AJ Styles: We have been through this. I am sorry. I did what I had to do to make a name for myself over there. I ain't proud but don't act like you would not have done the same damn thing if it meant getting to the top.

    Finn does take a moment to think it through before responding.

    Finn Balor: You are right but that does not mean I am going to roll over and take it!

    The Miz: A question for AJ. If you win at Summerslam will you be taking over the leadership of the Club from Finn Balor?

    AJ Styles: No I ain't even thinking about taking over the Club again. Listening they are my boys but I have one focus. That is defending the house that AJ Styles built and once I beat Finn Balor at Summerslam I am going back after my title.

    Finn starts to laugh as he brings the microphone back up towards his mouth.

    Finn Balor: Ah there is the bloody truth at last!

    AJ looks confused as Finn carries on.

    Finn Balor: You don't care about defending this show from the Wyatts. You don't care about the good brothers. The only thing you care about is that WWE title. How about you stop lying to these people?

    AJ Styles: Don't you dare accuse me of lying. That title is mine and I will take it back. Whilst he holds that title this show is suffering and I need to get it off him.

    Finn Balor: Well you can go after Bray Wyatt when I am done with him. When I beat you at Summerslam I am taking that WWE title and putting a true rock and rolla on the top of Smackdown Live!

    Both men go head to head as they look like they are about to come to blows when The Miz clears his throat. Both men turn to stare at the Miz who demands all attention is on him as usual.

    The Miz: You two are forgetting one thing. Look what I have in my hand!

    He holds up his money in the bank briefcase in the air for everyone to see. Both men noticeably don't stare at the Miz but stare at the briefcase.

    The Miz: Whilst I hold this anyone even looking at the WWE title is in danger as I am the next WWE champion in waiting.

    Both men stare at the Miz before they look at each other.

    AJ Styles: He has a point actually.

    Finn Balor: Yeah we need to take care of the competition.

    The Miz realizes he may have bitten off more then he can chew as Breezedango step forward to protect their leader who slides out of the ring with his money in the bank briefcase! Breezedango try to fight off AJ Styles and Finn Balor but it is no use with both men being taken down with Pele kicks to cheers from the crowd.

    Tom Phillips: They may not like each other but they are still two of the best superstars in WWE!

    Both men stand tall over the prone Breezedango as AJ Styles looks to go after The Miz on the outside but Finn grabs hold of him and spins him round hitting 1916 planting Styles to the mat. The Miz uses this opportunity to get out of dodge whilst Breezedango join him at the top of the ramp starting to recover from the pele kicks.

    Mauro Ranallo: The real rock and rolla taking advantage of the distraction caused by the Miz to lay out AJ Styles!

    We see Finn Balor have a slight smirk as he lifts his hand into the air and makes a too sweet symbol for the crowd who give him a mixed reaction once again as we cut to an ad break. When we come back we hear the music for Aliyah as she makes her way to the ring.

    Byron Saxton: It has been a rough start for the young superstar but she looks to pick up her first win on Smackdown Live as she takes on Dana Brooke.

    Tom Phillips: Dana Brooke is someone who is looking to break out on her own now she is on Smackdown Live but has not found it easy so far.

    Dana Brooke makes her way out to the ring next to a small pop from the crowd as she shows off her muscles. She is quick to climb into the ring as the ref rings the bell getting the match is underway.

    Match 4: Dana Brooke vs Aliyah

    Dana Brooke uses her power to take control of the match whilst Aliyah does her best to survive against Dana Brooke. As the match is going on we cut to Emma backstage watching this match. Dana Brooke in the end is able to pick up the win with a Samoan Driver!

    Winner via pinfall: Dana Brooke (5:28)

    Mauro Ranallo: An important win for Dana Brooke tonight over a very game Aliyah.

    Byron Saxton: I have a feeling Aliyah will soon be able to pick up a win as she showed a lot of toughness during this encounter.

    Dana Brooke gets her arm raised by the ref as we cut to Emma watching backstage who smiles and walks off.

    Tom Phillips: You have to wonder what Emma's angle is here and why she is so interested in Dana Brooke.

    Byron Saxton: Maybe she is just looking out for her friend?

    As commentary speculate on the reason for Emma's interest we cut to what is clearly a pre-recorded promo package as it shows Mickie James shortly after the final where she lost to Sarah Logan. She looks a little worse for wear before thanking the medic for his help.

    Mickie James: I am in a lot of pain right now and maybe I have a concussion after the beating I have taken tonight. Sarah Logan you hold on to that title real tight because I still want my 7th title reign! However there is someone else I am coming for. Nia Jax you tried to make sure I could not even take part in the final. Well I have had worse beatings from women who have double the strength and size of you! I may be older but I don't forget easily.

    The camera cuts away elsewhere backstage as we can see Zack Sabre Jr walking down the hallway looking in a bit of a bad mood after losing his IC title two nights ago when Renee Young walks up to him.

    Renee Young: Zack how are you feeling?

    Zack looks annoyed at the question before he turns to Renee to answer the question.

    Zack Sabre Jr: What about things in general? I lost my title after 133 days but I will get it back. I mean I am more worried about the inevitable implosion of my homeland after Brexit.

    Renee Young: We know you have an automatic rematch clause so the question is when will you be using it?

    Zack Sabre Jr: I will be using it at Summerslam. I lost my title without being pinned or submitted. Drew is a very tough man with a killer instinct but I can bend any man into a million knots and make them just tap out.

    Before Renee can ask any other questions Zack Sabre Jr walks off leaving Renee hanging.

    Mauro Ranallo: A massive match announced for an already stacked Summerslam as Drew McIntyre will defend his newly won IC title against Zack Sabre Jr!

    Byron Saxton: And up next after the commercial break we will see Drew McIntyre take on Nick Aldis so don't go anywhere!

    When we come back from the ad break we hear the last bit of the theme song for Nick Aldis as he has grabbed a microphone from ringside.

    Nick Aldis: Last night I lost due to the bad position I entered in. I had to start the match whereas Drew got to come in fresh when I was already weakened. If Drew is a really man he will put his IC title on the line against me right now.

    Aldis chucks the microphone out of the ring as Drew McIntyre marches out to the ring with a microphone in hand and his IC title belt around his waist.

    Drew McIntyre: You are on!

    Drew throws the microphone to the ramp before sliding into the ring and passing the ref his IC title belt.

    Tom Phillips: Looks like we have an impromptu IC title match!

    The ref raises the title in the air before passing it to the timekeeper. The ref then calls for the bell and the match is underway!

    Match 5: IC title match: Drew McIntyre vs Nick Aldis

    Both men spend a lot of the match hitting each other with numerous clubbing blows as the two powerhouse go to town on each other. Throughout the match we can see Zack Sabre Jr watching the encounter with an eagle eye. Nick Aldis however is unable to overcome the Scottish Terminator who puts him away with the claymore!

    Winner via pinfall: Drew McIntyre (11:14)

    Mauro Ranallo: An impressive victory for the Scottish Terminator overcoming the mercenary Nick Aldis!

    We can see Zack Sabre Jr watching on a TV as he shakes his head and walks away from the TV screen as we see Drew raise the title in the air barely letting out a smile just looking focused as he stands tall.

    Byron Saxton: You have to wonder who is going to stop him. This is a totally different Drew McIntyre then the one who got fired a few years ago!

    We cut elsewhere backstage as we can see Big Cass walking through the back with a bit of a swagger when Renee Young approaches him wanting to ask a few questions.

    Renee Young: Big Cass why did you attack Jack Swagger after your match on the Great American Bash pre-show?

    Big Cass: Why? Why? I have been letting people smaller then me take what should be mine. I am 7 foot tall, I have tried being nice and a good person for these fans but it gets me nowhere. Swagger's win was a fluke but I will be glad to show him exactly that if we meet again.

    Big Cass walks off on that note as we cut back to the commentary team.

    Byron Saxton: Big words there from Big Cass.

    Tom Phillips: Well I am just hearing from Shane McMahon backstage that next week Dean Ambrose will be back and he will be a guest on Miz TV.

    Byron Saxton: Not only that but Breezedango will get their chance to get a measure of payback next week as they will face AJ Styles and Finn Balor. Will the pair be able to co-exist or will they implode like they did at the Great American Bash?

    As Byron Saxton says that we cut to the backstage area which gets a massive mixed reaction as the one and only John Cena is making his way to the ring!

    Mauro Ranallo: And after the commercial break we will be hearing from the one and only John Cena so don't go anywhere as the main event is next!

    We cut to a commercial break as Mauro said but once we come back John Cena's music hits getting a reaction like only he can. He walks out to the entrance ramp looking at the fans before turning to the crowd saying they are fired up tonight. Cena throws his cap to the kids in the crowd before he grabs a microphone from someone at ringside as he gets ready to speak.

    John Cena: Well they say every thing is bigger in Texas and listen to that reaction!

    He puts his hand to his ear as he leans over the ropes listening to the crowd who are doing the “Lets go Cena, Cena sucks!” chants. He smiles enjoying the fans usual reaction to him.

    John Cena: It is good to be back. I have missed this. You see there is nothing like the WWE universe. I mean being in Hollywood is a lot of fun...

    This gets a few more boos from the crowd but John Cena shrugs before carrying on.

    John Cena: Hey The Rock was right. You can go to Hollywood and still love the WWE. I have done nearly everything in this business. I have won royal rumbles, main evented Wrestlemania and I have won the World title 16 times! WOO

    Mixed reaction from the crowd though he is able to get a few Ric Flair chants from the crowd before he smiles looking to the crowd.

    John Cena: However there is one thing I have left to do before I retire. I need to win that WWE title ONE MORE TIME!

    Once again a mixed reaction from the crowd as Cena walks back towards the centre of the ring as he looks to speak.

    John Cena: Now I would prefer to face AJ Styles but instead I am facing Bray Wyatt at Summerslam. The man who attacked me and ruined my rematch the Smackdown Live after Wrestlemania!

    Boos for Bray Wyatt as Cena is starting to look serious.

    John Cena: I have beaten you before Bray and I will do so again but I still owe you a beating so Bray bring your army of sheep out here right now because THE CHAMP IS HERE!

    John Cena takes his shirt off and throws it to the fans when the lights go out as Bray Wyatt appears on the titantron as he starts to laugh at John Cena before he lifts the WWE title into the air rubbing his face against it before he looks to John Cena.

    Bray Wyatt: John you left these people. You were once worshiped by the people but you have now been replaced by a god! You think you can come back and take the holy grail. You had it for too long and now is my time!

    John Cena: How about you come down here and say this to my face!

    Bray Wyatt: All in due time Cena all in due time.

    The titantron goes black as John Cena stands in the ring disappointed as he shouts to the crowd what can you do. He slides out of the ring before making his way to the top of the ramp when BRAY SNEAKS UP BEHIND HIM AND PLANTS HIM WITH SISTER ABIGAIL! Bray stands over John Cena holding the WWE title in the air!

    Mauro Ranallo: The eater of World sending a message to John Cena ahead of Summerslam.

    Bray stays stood over John Cena as he starts to sing the “He's got the whole wide world in his hands” as the show fades to black...

    Raw Re: WWE: A Different Future



    July 17th

    Nashville, Tennessee

    We start off the show with the usual video package and Raw theme music as we cut to the commentary team who welcome us to the show.

    Michael Cole: Welcome to Monday Night Raw where later on tonight we have a triple threat with the winner becoming the number one contender for the US title.

    Corey Graves: Not only that Michael but we in the main event of tonight's show we will see Sami Zayn and Seth Rollins taking on Randy Orton and Braun Strowman!

    The crowd let out a massive cheer meanwhile as we hear the music for Bayley hit as she walks to the ring with a microphone in her right arm as we can see her left arm is in a cast as she still heals from the post-match attack by the BFF's at Vengeance.

    Michael Cole: Bayley made her return from injury last night as she chased off the BFF's with a kendo stick to end the show but you have to wonder if it was wise of her to come back without being fully healed.

    Corey Graves: Bayley has a lot of heart but that does sometime lead to making poor decisions. The BFF's will be out for payback after last week!

    Bayley has now made it into the ring as she looks to speak to the crowd. However before she can speak she gets a Bayley chant from the fans. Bayley smiles looking down at the mat before she looks to speak.

    Bayley: You guys are just amazing and one of the reasons I love being a WWE superstar.

    Cheap pop but it is a loud one for the popular as always Bayley as she looks to carry on.

    Bayley: My arm may still be hurting but I am glad to be back where I belong on Monday night Raw. I went through hell in a cell and I won back my title for a few minutes.

    Bayley's mood is suddenly less positive as she remembers how she lost the lost the title.

    Bayley: You see I know the world is not a perfect place where everyone is a good person. Look at my former best friend for example.

    The mention of Sasha Banks gets boos from the crowd as Bayley smiles.

    Bayley: Don't worry I still hate her too. But I at least respect her. You see Sasha maybe be a vile person who only cares about herself but she would not wait till after a grueling Hell in a Cell to attack you 3 on 1 and steal your title!

    Shots fired as Bayley looks furious.

    Bayley: Summer Rae is not a true champion. A true champion does not sneak up on someone and cash in when they have gone through hell! I may not be 100% now or even at Summerslam but I will show Summer Rae how a true champion acts!

    Massive pop from the crowd for the fired up Bayley but before she can carry on the BFF's make their way out to the ring lead by their leader and Women's champion Summer Rae who looks as smug as ever. The crowd give Summer Rae a lot of heat but she does not care. Meanwhile in the ring Bayley slides out and grabs a kendo stick from under the ring ready to take on the numbers. Summer though just smiles.

    Summer Rae: Bayley you silly little girl I can wait till Summerslam to destroy you.

    We hear the crowd boo whilst Carmella stands behind Summer Rae trash talking. Tamina meanwhile as always is stood there being silent and imposing.

    Summer Rae: I did what anyone with half a brain would do. I saw an opportunity to take the Women's title so I took it. I am sorry that hurts your feelings but maybe you don't have what it takes to stay at the top!

    Bayley looks very angry in the ring as Summer looks to carry on.

    Summer Rae: I will do whatever it takes to keep this title. I will break both of your arms if I have to just to keep hold of this title. I am will make Sasha Banks looks as innocent as you are Bayley to keep this title and at Summerslam I won't just crush your dreams I will crush these fans dream.

    Summer Rae holds the title in the air as Bayley lifts the microphone up to speak.

    Bayley: Do you know how many times I have heard that from Sasha Banks? I am living my dreams and at Summerslam I take the Women's title back!

    Bayley throws the microphone down as the BFF's stand at the top of the entrance ramp staring down the hugger as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back from the commercial break we see Bayley walking through the back still holding the kendo stick when she is approached by Charlotte. Both women stare each other down as Bayley goes to speak first.

    Bayley: So I see you have a number one contender's shot at Summerslam? Good luck Charlotte.

    Charlotte: Thanks Bayley but when you are genetically superior you don't need luck. I have beaten Sasha before and I will do it again. And once I do, it does not matter whether it is you or Summer Rae, the queen takes back her throne.

    Charlotte walks off leaving Bayley stood there as we cut back towards the ring.

    Corey Graves: See this is why Summer has taken her title. Bayley is too soft and will not do whatever it takes to win like a Flair or Summer Rae.

    We hear the music for Cody Rhodes hit to boos from the crowd as he is acting a bit odd and unstable as he makes his way to the ring shouting at the fans at ringside.

    Booker T: I know his brother is a bit crazy but these last few weeks Cody has been showing that maybe it runs in the family?

    R-Truth music hits to a pop from the crowd. There is no rapping today though as R-Truth is focused on getting his hands on the American nightmare stood in the ring.

    Michael Cole: R-Truth looking to get some payback after Cody Rhodes attacked him backstage for mentioning his tag team partner's name.

    Corey Graves: Yeah but he was Cody's brother long before he was Truth partner.

    The ref makes sure R-Truth does not attack Cody before the bell as he signals for the timekeeper to get this match under way!

    Match 1: Cody Rhodes vs R-Truth

    Both men lay into each other early on in this encounter. R-Truth is a lot more focused then he normally is and even looks like he may pick up the win on a few occasions especially with Cody's poor form in recent times. However in the closing stages we see Cody Rhodes taking control of this match and he puts R-Truth away with Cross Rhodes!

    Winner via pinfall: Cody Rhodes (7:30)

    Michael Cole: Cody has picked up the win and breaks his recent run of poor form!

    Booker T: R-Truth credit to him pushed him to the limit but Cody was too good for him tonight!

    Cody leaves R-Truth in the ring as he walks towards the back stage area.We also cut towards the backstage area as we see Drake Maverick in his office when Bad News Barrett walks in.

    Drake Maverick: Hello Barrett how can I help you?

    Bad News Barrett: Did you see what happened last week before my title match? I want to get my hands on Samoa Joe. I want another US title shot and I want it tonight.

    Drake Maverick: I can't offer you that sorry Barrett.

    Barrett bends down towering over the smaller general manger not looking happy to have got a no to his request.

    Bad News Barrett: Why not?

    Drake Maverick: I promised Samoa Joe's next opponent would be decided tonight and I am a man of my word. However what I can do is add you to the number one contender's match later on in the show.

    Barrett takes a moment as he sighs before speaking.

    Bad News Barrett: Well I guess I have some BAD NEWS for not just Joe but everyone else in that match.

    Bad News Barrett leaves the room having gotten close to what he wanted as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back from the ad break we cut to the commentary desk.

    Michael Cole: Well before the commercial break we heard some big news as Bad News Barrett has been added to the number one contender's match later in the show joining Austin Aries, Damien Sandow and Shinsuke Nakamura.

    However before they can comment more we hear the strum off a guitar play as the drifter Elias makes his way out onto the stage ready to perform for the crowd.

    Corey Graves: Oh god where are my earplugs?

    Booker T: Aww boy we are getting a live concert from a musical sensation!

    The spotlight follows Elias as he is walking down to the ring with his guitar in his hand and the special microphone next to his mouth. He climbs into the ring where there is a stool set up as Elias climbs over the ropes and takes a seat.

    Elias: Hello I am Elias and I would be out here to perform a song but I picked the wrong week to drift into town.

    Boos from the crowd as Elias look to carry on.

    Elias: This is one of the worst cities I have drifted into in my time here. Well I am sorry to break your achy breakey heart but I don't think you understand how awful the musicians are from this city.

    The boos get louder as Elias carries on going for the cheap heat.

    Elias: How about you shut your damn mouths. People from Nashville have no idea about music and wrestling!

    The boos get even louder as Elias is having fun winding up the fans.

    Elias: I think of all the wrestlers who wrestled in this city for failed promotions and I feel sorry for how stupid they are!

    The crowd are getting really wound up as Elias picks up his guitar when suddenly the music for the Hardy Boyz hits to a massive pop from the crowd! Elias does not look impressed as he stands in the ring. We get a few “TNA” chants from the crowd as they slap hands with the fans at ringside.

    Corey Graves: Finally someone has come out to shut Elias up!

    The Hardy Boyz join Elias in the ring as he looks a little wary due to the numbers advantage the Hardy Boyz have over him. Jeff is the one with a microphone as he looks to speak first.

    Jeff Hardy: We may be from North Carolina but we consider this city to be like a second home to us after all the time we spent here!

    Cheap pop but the crowd enjoy Jeff Hardy giving their city some praise.

    Jeff Hardy: The fans in this city know me well and they know great wrestling and music. How about you fight me right here right now since you want to trash talk my second home?

    The fans pop for the idea of see Jeff Hardy perform tonight as Elias looks like he is thinking about it when he chooses to slide under the bottom rope to boos from the crowd. However before he get to the ramp Matt Hardy slides out of the ring stopping Elias in his tracks. Drake Maverick music suddenly hits to a pop from the crowd.

    Drake Maverick: I have to agree with the Hardy Boyz praise of this city as this was one of the first place I performed as a wrestler before coming to WWE. So Elias if you want to trash talk Nashville you can face off against Jeff Hardy right now!

    Elias shakes his head not looking happy as Drake signals for a ref to make his way to the ring as we cut to a commercial break.

    Match 2: Elias vs Jeff Hardy w/Matt Hardy

    When we come back we see the match under way as Elias is trying to keep Jeff Hardy grounded as he looks to wear down the former World champion. Matt Hardy watches on a ringside as he is cheering on his brother. Elias however is not able to keep Jeff Hardy grounded for too long as he starts to take control of the match.

    In the closing stages of the match Elias looks like he is in trouble when the Revival come down to the ringside area and start to beat down Matt Hardy on the outside. This distracts the ref and Jeff Hardy. Jeff climbs to the top rope as he dives off hitting both of the Revival. He gets back in the ring but this allows Elias to stun him with a kick to the gut before he brings him to the center of the ring and hits the drift away! Elias makes the cover and picks up a massive win on his in-ring debut!

    Winner via pinfall: Elias (10:42)

    Booker T: A massive win for Elias here in his first ever match on Monday Night Raw!

    Corey Graves: I may not be a fan of Elias's music but he is a tough in ring competitor who has just pinned a former World champion in his first match on Monday Night Raw.

    Elias leaves the scene very quickly whilst the Revival start to recover on the outside. They pick up Matt Hardy before they toss him into the steel steps making sure he cannot do anything. They slide into the ring as they grab hold of Jeff Hardy as they lift him into the air and hit the Shatter machine laying out Jeff Hardy!

    Michael Cole: A cheap attack by the WWE tag team champions.

    Corey Graves: They are sending a message Michael. They are letting the Hardy Boyz know who the real top tag team on Monday night Raw are!

    The Revival stand tall in the ring as we cut to the backstage area to see Ember Moon is mediating when she gets approached by the commissioner for Monday night Raw Stephanie McMahon. Ember Moon opens her eyes and does not look happy.

    Ember Moon: What do you want?

    Stephanie McMahon: That is no way to talk to your boss. Now I know we have not got off on the best foot but next week I have arranged a match for you. A fair opportunity to prove yourself ready for when HHH is back in charge.

    Ember Moon: Whoever it is I will beat them just make sure you stay out of it.

    Stephanie leaves the room oddly just taking that line as we cut back to a commercial break. When we come back from the ad break we hear the music for the US champion hit as walks towards the commentary desk joining the commentary team.

    Corey Graves: Samoa Joe welcome to the commentary desk may I ask what brings you over here?

    Samoa Joe: I am here to see my next victim.

    The first man making his way to the ring for this fatal 4 way match is the self-proclaimed greatest man who ever lived Austin Aries. He has his sunglasses on, as he looks at the crowd with disdain before walking to the ring.

    Booker T: Now Joe I know you have faced this man in your travels around the country before making it here. How would you feel about facing Aries for the US title?

    Samoa Joe: Listen I know first hand that Austin Aries is as great as he says he is. However there is a reason why I won't be beaten for this title no matter how great he is.

    The next person to make their way out to the ring is Damien Sandow who gets a decent pop from the crowd as he looks to earn another chance to take the US title from Samoa Joe.

    Samoa Joe: And you see this man? He tried to outsmart me but that did not work for him did it?

    The third person to make their way out to the ring is Bad News Barrett as he walks out to the ring with a snarl on his face. However before walking to the ring he walks towards the commentary desk as he shouts he has some bad news for Joe.

    Michael Cole: Any words about what Barrett just said?

    Samoa Joe: I have already beaten Barrett. I attacked him from behind as he ran his mouth. I don't need to attack people from behind to destroy them. If we had another match the result would still be the same.

    The last man to make his way out to the ring is Shinsuke Nakamura as he gets a massive pop from the crowd. He has fun dancing along to the music as Joe watches on with an intense stare.

    Corey Graves: This is a man you are very familiar with having gone to war with him over the NXT title.

    Samoa Joe: Me and Nakamura know each other very well and Nakamura knows that I can beat him.

    All 4 men stand in the ring as the ref rings the bell getting this number one contender's match under way!

    Match 3: US title number one contender's match: Shinsuke Nakamura vs Damien Sandow vs Bad News Barrett vs Austin Aries

    This is a fun and fast paced encounter with all 4 men desperate to earn themselves a shot at facing Samoa Joe. There is even time for a commercial break in the match. In the closing stages of the match Barrett ends up battling with Aries on the outside of the ring. This allows Shinsuke to hit Damien Sandow with the Kinsaha. Shinsuke hooks the leg and picks up the win!

    Winner and number one contender for the US title: Shinsuke Nakamura (16:19)

    Michael Cole: A massive win for the king of strong style who will now fight you for the US title Joe. What do you think about that?

    Samoa Joe does not respond only staring at the ring and his future opponent. Joe gets up from commentary table picking up his US title and walking towards the ring.

    Corey Graves: I think we are about to find out the answer.

    Shinsuke Nakamura stands tall in the ring but he sees Joe walking down the ramp as the two rivals from NXT met each other on the ramp as they stare each other down! Both men get face to face but no fists are thrown between the former rivals as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back from the break we can see Seth Rollins walk into the World champion Sami Zayn's locker room!

    Sami Zayn: Hello Seth

    Seth Rollins: Listen I know we ain't friends or anything but we need to work together tonight to win.

    Sami looks very annoyed as he stands up going towards Seth Rollins.

    Sami Zayn: I don't need someone else telling me how much of a challenge it is to face the monster Braun Strowman. And as for Randy Orton I am familiar with him.

    Seth Rollins: I mean that was not what I meant. We need to have eyes in the back of our heads just in case Kevin Owens and Stephanie McMahon get involved.

    Sami Zayn: I trust you on that regard as I know Owens very well. Just do me a favor. Leave Braun for me.

    Seth Rollins: I still have my own score to settle with Braun.

    Sami Zayn: Well it can wait.

    Rollins smiles though he is clearly starting to get annoyed but he composes himself.

    Seth Rollins: Fair enough but after I am done with Owens, if you still have that title I have unfinished business with it as well.

    Before we hear what Seth Rollins has to say we cut the to Dudley Boyz who are backstage when they are approached by Charly Caruso.

    Charly Caruso: D-von, Bubba can I ask you a question?

    Bubba Ray Dudley: We were just about to head to the ring for our match but we got time for a quick question.

    Charly Caruso: Why did you not help the Hardy Boyz like they helped you last week?

    D-Von Dudley: We made it clear last week we don't need their help or their pity.

    Bubba Ray Dudley: We are big enough and ugly enough to handle our own problems and we feel they are as well.

    D-Von Dudley: Now if you will excuse us we have a tag team match to go win.

    The Dudleys both walk off having made it clear they have no interest in returning the favor from last week as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back we see Tony Nese and Drew Gulak already waiting inside the ring.

    Booker T: I have known the Dudleys for many years and they have one focus.Those tag team titles. It is the reason they have become 18 time tag team champions.

    Corey Graves: They should be focusing elsewhere as the Revival have already beaten both teams in recent times.

    As they are talking about the Dudleys, they make their way to the ring to a pop from the crowd as they look to once again force their way back into the tag team titles picture. They get in the ring as Nese starts for his team whilst Bubba Ray Dudley starts for the Dudley Boyz.

    Match 4: The Dudley Boyz vs Tony Nese and Drew Gulak

    Nese and Gulak put on a better showing then expected in this encounter as Drew Gulak uses his impressive ground game to wear down the Dudleys and they even look like they may pick up the win. However in the end the Dudleys put them away by hitting 3D on Tony Nese.

    Winners via pinfall: The Dudley Boyz (7:11)

    Michael Cole: A very impressive performance by Nese and Gulak but the Dudleys proved to be too much for them tonight.

    Corey Graves: The veteran experience was the difference here as the Dudleys pick up the win!

    They celebrate in the ring when the Revival charge down to the ring and attack both men from behind wearing them down. They throw Bubba Ray Dudley into the steel post before they grab hold of D-Von laying him out with the shatter machine! Both men stand tall before they clink their titles together standing tall over the Dudleys.

    Booker T: The Revival are sending a message tonight!

    Corey Graves: The Revival are the top tag team in WWE today. The Hardys and The Dudley Boyz are legends of the past but you are looking at the future in the ring.

    We cut to the backstage area as we can see Randy Orton is sat wearing a RKO hoodie listening to music when Kevin Owens walks into the room. Orton looks over confused and suspicious.

    Randy Orton: What do you want?

    Kevin Owens: Listen I just come to say that tonight you can do Stephanie McMahon a massive favor.

    Randy Orton: Oh can I? Last time I checked I don't work for the authority any more. I look after myself.

    Kevin Owens: Listen maybe if you destroy Seth Rollins and Sami Zayn you may put yourself in line for a future opportunity at the World title?

    Randy gets up at this point getting in Owens's face not looking happy.

    Randy Orton: I will defeat both men tonight but not for your or for Stephanie McMahon. Now leave before I show you the 3 most dangerous letters in professional wrestling.

    Owens backs out of the room not wanting to pick a fight with Orton as we cut to an ad break. When we come back we cut to the commentary team.

    Booker T: Kevin Owens can be such a slime ball.

    Corey Graves: Hey Kevin Owens is just being smart. He is telling Orton what could be on offer if he rejoins the authority.

    We next hear the music for the Indian nightmares play as Jinder Mahal and Sunil Singh are not dressed to compete. Samir Singh however is as he walks down to the ring.

    Michael Cole: Well up next Mustafa Ali will be taking on one of Jinder Mahal's servants in Samir Singh.

    He stands in the ring as Mustafa Ali makes his way out next to a decent pop from the crowd. Ali is cautious due to the men stood at ringside but slides into the ring ready for this match up.

    Match 5: Mustafa Ali vs Samir Singh w/ Sunil Singh and Jinder Mahal

    This is a short match and would have been even shorter had Sunil Singh and Jinder stop trying to get involved to help Samir. Mustafa Ali is in the end able to put away Samir in relatively easy fashion with a standing moonsault!

    Winner via pinfall: Mustafa Ali (3:39)

    As Mustafa Ali is celebrating in the ring Jinder and Sunil attack him from behind laying into him with a number of boots. Jinder Mahal picks up Mustafa Ali before hitting him with Khallas laying out Mustafa Ali!

    Booker T: What a cheap assault by Jinder Mahal.

    Corey Graves: You don't turn down a man like Jinder Mahal when he makes you an offer. Jinder was very hurt by the rejection of someone he wanted to help.

    Michael Cole: Jinder tried to tell him these fans hate him because he is different which is clearly not true at all!

    As Jinder and the Bollywood Boyz stand tall in the ring, we cut the backstage area to find Braun Strowman showing off his freakish strength on the weights when Kevin Owens walks into the room. Braun Strowman gets up to his feet quickly walking towards Owens.

    Braun Strowman: What do you want?

    Kevin Owens: Hey I come in peace

    Braun Strowman: Well you can leave now before I break you into pieces.

    Kevin Owens: Listen I just wondered if you can do us both a favor and crush Seth Rollins. If you take care of him for me maybe Stephanie McMahon can look after you?

    Braun Strowman: Seth Rollins is going to get these hands as is Sami Zayn but if you think I am just some dumb big brute Owens you are very stupid. I know what you do to people you ally with and you try it with me I will destroy you. Now leave!

    Kevin is smart enough to leave the monster in peace as he goes back to his work out as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back we hear the music for Becky Lynch play as the Lass kicker makes her way down to the ring!

    Michael Cole: Becky Lynch will not be a in a good mood tonight after being screwed out of the Women's title by Stephanie McMahon last week!

    Corey Graves: Becky learning first hand why you don't cross the boss.

    Booker T: Well I think Becky may follow through on her threat to break Stephanie McMahon's arm if she sees her tonight guys!

    Becky stands in the ring looking very annoyed before grabbing a microphone from someone at ringside as she gets ready to speak.

    Becky Lynch: Last week I was this close to finally getting my hands on the Women's title. I had Ember Moon down for a 3 count but suddenly the ref was gone because of one person. Stephanie McMahon.

    The crowd boo the mention of the boss as Becky Lynch looks to carry on.

    Becky Lynch: Now up to this point I could handle being placed in handicap matches but screwing me out of the title that I have fought my whole damn life trying to get to? If she thinks there would be no repercussions she has another thing coming!

    The crowd cheer the fire Becky is showing as she marches around the ring before she looks towards the entrance ramp.

    Becky Lynch: So Stephanie McMahon you dope do I have to come to you or are you going to come to me? Cause either way I am breaking your arm sooner or later you bitch!

    That gets a reaction from the crowd as Becky Lynch is clearly fired up. It takes a few moments but the music for Stephanie McMahon hits. However the commissioner does not make her way to the ring. Instead the music stops as she appears on the titantron and is clearly backstage which gets massive boos from the crowd. Becky in the ring meanwhile looks even more annoyed whilst Stephanie McMahon smirks.

    Stephanie McMahon: Hello Becky I do not engage in fights with the talent. I told you a few weeks ago that you would NEVER be Women's champion whilst I was commissioner of Monday night Raw. Now I know you are a little fired up...

    Becky Lynch: You are damn right I am fired up! But since you are not coming out here I am coming to you!

    Becky throws the microphone down as she looks to find Stephanie McMahon herself! However as she goes to walk back through the entrance ramp she gets attacked by Alexa Bliss! Stephanie McMahon starts laughing on the titantron as the crowd boo her and Alexa Bliss.

    Stephanie McMahon: Oh did I forget to mention? You have a match with Alexa Bliss and that starts right now!

    Alexa Bliss takes Becky down the ramp taking her to the ring as she trash talks her all the way down the ramp. However as she does Becky throws Alexa Bliss into the apron. Becky rolls Bliss into the ring as the ref makes it down to the ring starting the match!

    Match 6: Becky Lynch vs Alexa Bliss

    Both women are fired up after the brawl on the entrance ramp at the start of the encounter. There are also a lot of counters throughout the match as both women know each other very well. As the match is going on we cut to Stephanie McMahon watching with Kevin Owens. In the end Alexa Bliss tries to use her metal glove to punch Becky but she has it scouted as Becky grabs the arm she planned to use and locks in the dis-arm-her! Alexa tries to get out but she is forced to tap out!

    Winner via submission: Becky Lynch (8:48)

    Becky Lynch keeps the move locked it for a little longer after the bell then usual before she throws the arm down to the mat. She rises to her feet not celebrating instead marching to the back.

    Michael Cole: Well it does not look like Stephanie McMahon's plan worked and it may have only succeeded in making Becky even angrier more.

    Meanwhile we cut to the backstage area to see Stephanie McMahon looking furious as she storms away from the TV she is using as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back we can see Hunico and Kalisto backstage stood with their new manager Zelina Vega. On the TV they have in the room we can see the match they had last week.

    Zelina Vega: Look at this! You need to go in for the kill.

    Hunico: Yes Zelina.

    Kalisto: We got the win Zelina...

    Zelina Vega: Yes you got the win but the performance is not what I expect from my clients. I expect better especially from my talent. Now we will watch the tape one more time and then we will go back to training.

    Both men nod as she presses play on the TV as we cut back to the ring.

    Booker T: That Zelina Vega is a tough task master.

    Corey Graves: She is but look what she has done for the career for Andrade Cien Almas in NXT. She knows how to get the best out of all of her clients.

    As they are talking about what we had just seen we hear the music for Brian Kendrick hit as he makes his way down to the ring to a small amount of boos from the crowd.

    Michael Cole: Kendrick will be looking to pick up a win tonight after falling just short in his Cruiserweight title match with Neville last week.

    Corey Graves: He showed last week he is still a threat due to his veteran experience and skill. A few wins in the next few weeks and he could put himself in position to challenge the winner at Summerslam.

    The next man to make his way out is Cedric Alexander who gets a pop from the crowd. He high fives the fans as he walks down to the ring.

    Booker T: This guy is a hell of a talent and is another person who will be looking to insert himself in the Cruiserweight title picture.

    Corey Graves: Cedric is a very good talent but you have to wonder if he will be able to overcome the man with a plan?

    Match 7: Cedric Alexander vs Brian Kendrick

    Both men put on a decent battle showing off their skills. Kendrick as the match goes on struggles to keep up with the pace that Cedric Alexander has and in the end Cedric is able to put away Brian Kendrick with the Lumbar check.

    Winner via pinfall: Cedric Alexander (10:55)

    Michael Cole: A good win for Cedric Alexander and you have to wonder if he will be next in line for a shot at the Cruiserweight title after Summerslam?

    We cut backstage as Cedric Alexander celebrates on the ramp. We see Mike Rome approach Tommaso Cimapa looking for an interview.

    Mike Rome: Tommaso Ciampa can I ask you a few questions?

    Ciampa looks at him shaking his head.

    Tommaso Ciampa: The future champion is a busy man so make it quick.

    Mike Rome: What did you think of Cedric Alexander's performance just now?

    Tommaso Ciampa: Why would I care? I am the greatest Cruiserweight in the history of sports-entertainment. Once I dethrone the so called “King of the Cruiserweights” it does not matter who I face next...

    As Tommaso Ciampa is talking we see the Cruiserweight champion Neville walk up behind his challenger.

    Tommaso Ciampa: Whether it is Cedric Alexander or anyone else I will show them what happens when they face the best in this business.

    Mike Rome: Um Tommaso...

    Tommaso Ciampa: I was not done! Do not interrupt me ever again! Now where was I..

    Neville gets even closer as he takes a moment to tilt his head curious what Ciampa is going to say next.

    Tommaso Ciampa: Like I said I have shown time and time again I am the best of the business. I ditched the dead weight and look where my former tag team partner is? He is stuck on the injury shelf! And that is exactly where I will put the king when I dethrone him!

    Mike Rome just nods instead of saying anything as he walks away from the scene.

    Tommaso Ciampa: Get back here! That is no way to end an interview with the greatest sports-entertainmenter today.

    Tommaso Ciampa turns around with a scowl on his face as he sees Neville stood behind him!

    Neville: You talk too much!

    Neville clobbers Tommaso Ciampa in the jaw before he starts laying into him with numerous strikes. He grabs hold of Ciampa before he tosses him into the set causing it to full down but Neville is not done there laying into Ciampa. He grabs the number one contender as he locks the Rings of Saturn around the neck of Ciampa!

    Ciampa cries out in pain as backstage officials and security have to pull Neville away from Ciampa. Ciampa is still down on the floor as the King has gotten a measure of payback as we cut to an ad break. When we come from the ad break we cut to the commentary desk.

    Michael Cole: Before our main event of the evening we have my interview with the Boss Sasha Banks ahead of her number one contender's match with Charlotte at Summerslam.

    We cut to a backstage area in a well lit room that has been set up with two chairs. We can see Michael Cole sat in one chair whilst opposite him is Sasha Banks the Boss. Sasha does not look impressed as she sits across from him as Michael Cole gets ready to start the interview.

    Michael Cole: Welcome Sasha.

    She blanks him as Cole waits a few seconds for an answer before choosing to carry on.

    Michael Cole: OK,my first question is have you healed up fully after the Hell in a Cell match at Vengeance?

    Sasha Banks: I am the Boss Sasha Banks. I am at 100% and even if I was not it does not matter. No one is on my level!

    Michael Cole: Well it could be argued that your fellow four horsewomen are on your level at least.

    Sasha Banks gets up out of the chair already looking annoyed as she points as Michael Cole.

    Sasha Banks: No one is on my level! None of them are as great as I am. All the legends you grew up watching? I am better then all of them combined. Becky Lynch has never held any of the titles I have managed to hold, Bayley is a naïve little girl. I mean look at her willingly challenging Summer Rae with a busted up arm! And Charlotte?

    Sasha Banks takes a moment to compose herself before she sits back down on the chair.

    Sasha Banks: Charlotte may have come from wrestling royalty but I proved last year at Summerslam I am better then her no matter who her dad is.

    Michael Cole: That relates to my next question. How much of an advantage is it knowing that you beat Charlotte at last year's Summerslam for the Women's title, becoming champion for the first time?

    Sasha Banks: For a lesser women it might mean something but I know I can beat any women on that roster in any match, any time of day, any where.

    Michael Cole: Don't you think your arrogance may cost you like it did at Vengeance?

    Sasha Banks pulls down her sunglasses as that comment clearly just struck a nerve. She takes a moment to stew after that comment before she looks to respond.

    Sasha Banks: I will not make the same mistake I made against Bayley. I will make sure I finish the job. Look at what happened when I beat Charlotte last year? A month later her body broke down. Whilst she was gone I took over. She calls herself the queen of the Women division but she is no longer on top of the Women's division. I am.

    We cut away from the interview on that final note as we cut back towards the ring as we can see the commentary table all ready to speak.

    Michael Cole: As you can see strong words from the Boss Sasha Banks.

    Corey Graves: When you are that great there will always be a little bit of ego. But she will be focused on getting back to the top of the Women's division to become a 3 time Women's champion.

    Booker T: Well guys we have that to look forward to in 3 weeks but up next we have our massive main event as Seth Rollins and Sami Zayn team up to take on Randy Orton and Braun Strowman.

    We cut to a commercial break on that note. When come back we get introduced to the music of the Viper Randy Orton first to mostly boos from the crowd as he slithers down to the ring.

    Michael Cole: The Viper will be looking to strike after coming up short at Vengeance against Sami Zayn.

    Corey Graves: Orton is a 12 time World champion and someone who is always one win away from putting himself back into the title hunt.

    The next man to make his way out to the ring is the monster among men Braun Strowman. He has the money in the bank briefcase still in hand reminding us that he will be cashing it in at Summerslam. He walks over the ropes with relative ease before standing away from Orton.

    Booker T: Braun told Kevin Owens earlier in the night he ain't some dumb brute.

    Corey Graves: I mean look at the way he cashed in his briefcase. He is smart enough to know he does not need to cash in on a weakened challenger. Instead he can play mind games letting them plan their own funeral so to speak.

    The first man to make his way out for the babyface team is Seth Rollins. However he is smart enough to wait for his partner on the ramp.

    Michael Cole: We have heard from backstage that this main event was made by Stephanie McMahon. Maybe as a way to weaken Seth Rollins ahead of his big match at Summerslam.

    Corey Graves: Or maybe she wanted a big main event for the show?

    The last person out is the World Champion Sami Zayn. He makes his way to the ring next to a massive pop from the crowd as he joins Seth Rollins on the entrance ramp.

    Booker T: Both men may be allies tonight but in the future these two men could be facing each other for that belt and Seth Rollins has made it clear he wants to be the man again.

    Corey Graves: Lets see if Sami Zayn makes it out of his match with Braun Strowman.

    Both men stand in the ring as there seems to be some argument over who will start the match for their team. In the end Seth Rollins gives in and lets the champion start the match against the Viper Randy Orton.

    Main Event: Sami Zayn and Seth Rollins vs Randy Orton and Braun Strowman

    At the start of the match before a blow can be dealt Strowman tags himself in to face Sami Zayn as the crowd pop for the Summerslam preview. Sami Zayn in this short bit shows his fight and gives the giant a good going. He makes the tag to Rollins who looks to surprise the giant with his pace. However Braun being the monster he is able to fend off the early flurry and gets Orton in the ring who is able to slow down the pace of the match.

    As the match goes on the heels control the encounter but the babyfaces do get the hot tag. In the closing stages Zayn and Rollins are actually in control working well as a unit. Zayn tags in Rollins as Zayn takes Strowman off the apron before he hits a suicide dive into a DDT planting the monster on the outside. In the ring Seth Rollins gets ready to hit the curb stomp. However Owens makes his way to ringside which distracts Rollins for a second. He still goes for the curb stomp but Orton reverses into a RKO. He makes the cover whilst Zayn is too distracted laying into Braun to break the cover!

    Winners via pinfall: Randy Orton and Braun Strowman (14:09)

    As soon as the bell ring Randy Orton slides out of the ring and heads to the back. Meanwhile Zayn slides into the ring to check on Seth Rollins when Owens takes his head off with a clothesline! Owens grabs hold of Zayn before he hits him with a pop-up powerbomb planting Zayn. Braun walks in as Owens leaves his former friend in the ring for Braun. Braun picks him up before hitting him with a running powerslam! Meanwhile Owens grabs hold of Seth Rollins before he pop-up powerbombs him on the outside as Kevin Owens and Braun Strowman stand tall to end the show!

    Akira Tozawa out with an injury!

    Akira Tozawa at a recent house show picked up a shoulder injury and will be off TV for an unknown length of time. What this means for his tag team partner Apollo Crews is unknown but he is expected to still be used on TV in some form.

    Re: WWE: A Different Future


    July 18th
    Birmingham, Alabama

    Mauro Ranallo: Welcome to Smackdown Live as we are here in Birmingham, Alabama!

    Byron Saxton: And what a show we have tonight! We will see Finn Balor and AJ Styles take on Breezedango after what happened on Miz TV last week.

    Tom Phillips: Speaking of Miz TV we will see Dean Ambrose appear on Miz TV later on tonight.

    Byron Saxton: Not only that but we will see Sarah Logan defend her Amazonian title for the first time as she takes on Paige who will be looking for payback after the Great American Bash!

    Mauro Ranallo: And in the main event of the show we will see the Wyatt Family take on American Alpha and New Day as they look to get payback for the attack at the Great American Bash!

    Speak of the devil and he shall appear. We see the lights go out as the Wyatt Family make their way to the ring. All 6 members on the current roster walk to the ring getting mostly boos as Bray is front and center with Luke Harper and Sarah Logan stood just behind him.

    Tom Phillips: And the Wyatts are here early to start the show. Last week we found out that John Cena will take on Bray Wyatt for the WWE title at Summerslam as he looks to break Ric Flair's record!

    Bray Wyatt stands in the center of the ring as his followers kneel behind him as he gets ready to speak.

    Bray Wyatt:You see I thought I had exorcised the demons of my past but they keep coming back! First, I buried the Undertaker for good!

    Massive heat for Bray Wyatt bringing up destroying the Undertaker at Wrestlemania 33.

    Bray Wyatt:Then Dean Ambrose came back for me and I destroyed him in his own environment! But now the former face John Cena comes back to take my holy grail?

    Mixed reaction for the 16 time World champion as Bray Wyatt smirks.

    Bray Wyatt: He covets the thing he used to hold with an iron grip but his time has passed. It is our time now, time for the monsters to pick the buzzards. We are growing in power and tonight we will show the world that fact.

    Sarah Logan steps forward letting out an evil grin as she holds her Amazonian title in the air!

    Sarah Logan: Paige you should just play dead? Have you not watched any horror films? The killer just keeps coming and coming and coming back till they finish the job. And you are no innocent little virgin!

    She lets out a laugh as the crowd boo that line from Sarah Logan knowing what she is implying as Bray takes back over speaking once again.

    Bray Wyatt: However tonight we have old foes in American Alpha and New Day who have yet to face the new Wyatt Family. Tonight, we will show them why they should have run when we came to collect but Shane we want some reward when we beat them tonight.

    Bray pauses taking a seat in the ring as the commissioner for Smackdown Live makes his way to the ring! Shane McMahon does not waste much time as he makes his way to the ring to a pop from the crowd. He stands on the ramp wary for obvious reasons of the large group in the ring.

    Shane McMahon: I am curious what kind of reward you are asking for after the damage you have done to my show? And why would I even reward you in the first place?

    Bray laughs in the ring before he goes to speak.

    Bray Wyatt: Have you not learned to use honey rather than a stick? This is the land of opportunity and surely if we beat the chosen teams we should get a shot at the tag team titles at Summerslam?

    Shane McMahon takes a moment to think things through before he looks towards the Wyatts in the ring.

    Shane McMahon: I agree as long as you promise to cause no more chaos on my show until Summerslam!

    Bray chuckles in the ring having got what he wanted before he looks to respond to the commissioner of Smackdown Live.

    Bray Wyatt: Thank you Shane because soon the we will have all of the power in our hands and Cena I know you have the stars in your eyes but make sure you FOLLOW THE BUZZARDS!

    All 6 members of the Wyatts stand in the ring with their arms out stretched which unnerves Shane McMahon a little on the entrance ramp as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back from the ad break, we can see the perfect ten Tye Dillinger making his way to the ring to a decent pop from the crowd.

    Mauro Ranallo: A massive announcement at the start of the show in case anyone missed it. If the Wyatt Family win the main event tonight, they will be added to the World tag team titles match at Summerslam making it a triple threat.

    Tom Phillips: Well if American Alpha and New Day did not have enough motivation after the attack at the Great American Bash, they have it now if they want to keep the match between themselves to prove who is the top tag team on Smackdown Live!

    The next man to make his way out to the ring is the IC champion Drew McIntyre. He slowly marches to the ring like the terminator as the fans cheer on the popular IC champion.

    Byron Saxton: However right now we will see our IC champion in action against Tye Dillinger.

    Mauro Ranallo: Last week the Scottish terminator showed he has no problem defending his title against all challengers and Drew has made it clear he is a fighting champion and determined to fight his way to the top!

    Tom Phillips: Drew is one of the most driven people I have seen since coming back to WWE. He knows what it is like to be here and to lose that spot. Now he is making sure he keeps it.

    However, before the ref can ring the bell the music for Zack Sabre Jr hits to a pop from the crowd as the former IC champion makes his way to the ring. He takes a seat on the commentary desk grabbing a headset of his own.

    Tom Phillips: Welcome Zack.

    Zack Sabre Jr: Thanks, I have come out here to do scouting up close and personal.

    Byron Saxton: I have to ask Zack. How did it feel losing your IC title without being pinned or submitted?

    Zack Sabre Jr: It felt awful. What did you expect me to say? You are worse than the Sun when it comes to journalism!

    An oddly sharp and cutting answer from the former champion as the ref rings the bell getting this contest underway.

    Match 1: Drew McIntyre vs Tye Dillinger

    Tye Dillinger is determined to use this opportunity to appear on Smackdown Live to pick up a massive win. Meanwhile on commentary Sabre is very snarky throughout the match and oddly dismissive of Drew McIntyre. Talks about all the muscle making it easier to be worn down and twist him in place for submissions. In the ring meanwhile Drew is able in the end to put away Tye Dillinger with the Futureshock DDT!

    Winner via pinfall: Drew McIntyre (8:40)

    Mauro Ranallo: An impressive victory for Drew McIntyre tonight overcoming the very game Tye Dillinger!

    Zack Sabre Jr: If you say so.

    Sabre puts down his headsets as Drew McIntyre gets his arm raised in the ring. Drew turns around as he can see Sabre slow clapping him. Drew lets a slight smirk before raising his IC title into the air which seems to annoy Zack Sabre Jr. We cut backstage after that match as we can see Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder walking through the backstage area.

    Curt Hawkins: It is good to have you back bro.

    He gives Zack Ryder a bro fist as his friend lets out a massive smile.

    Zack Ryder: You think that Mojo can keep me down? Bro I have been through way worse and I always come back.

    At this point Roman Reigns walks into shot as he steps towards Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins laughing at the pair. Zack Ryder starts to look very annoyed as he turns towards Reigns.

    Zack Ryder: What is your problem?

    Roman Reigns: Me? I don't have a problem. I am the top star on this brand whereas you two? You ain't on my level.

    Reigns gets right in Ryder's face at this point as he stares him in the eyes.

    Roman Reigns: No matter how much these stupid fans chant your name because they don't matter.

    Zack Ryder: Then how about you fight either of us right here right now!

    Reigns lets out a smirk.

    Roman Reigns: Why not? I have a couple of minutes free later on in the show.

    Reigns walks off looking as cocky as ever heading through the backstage area as both the Hype Bros shake their head due to the arrogance of Reigns.

    Mauro Ranallo: Well that is a big announcement. Later on tonight we will see the big dawg Roman Reigns take on the Long island bro Zack Ryder!

    The camera then cuts to the backstage area as we can see Balor and AJ Styles on a side by side cut walking to the ring.

    Tom Phillips: And after this commercial break we will see if Balor and AJ Styles can co-exist long enough to take down Breezedango tonight!

    When we come back from the ad break as we can see Breezedango making their way down to the ring with usual selfie sticks!

    Byron Saxton: Well this match was made by Shane McMahon last week after what went down on Miz TV.

    Mauro Ranallo: Breezedango for all their antics are a proven tag team and former tag team champions so Finn and AJ will need to be at their best to win tonight.

    AJ Styles makes his way out next looking focused and very angry. He gets into the ring as he faces off against Breezedango. His attention is soon on the entrance ramp however as the Rock and Rolla Finn Balor makes his way onto the ramp getting a mixed reaction from the crowd.

    Tom Phillips: In 3 weeks' time these two men will go head to head but right now they will have to try to co-exist.

    Byron Saxton: Well they could not manage it against the Wyatts I don't see it happening tonight guys.

    The ref looks like he is about to the ring the bell as AJ Styles and Finn Balor argue over who will start. Across the ring you can hear Breezedango mocking them so the pair respond by drop-kicking both men in the face. AJ follows after Fandango which leaves Finn Balor in the ring with Breeze.

    Match 2: AJ Styles and Finn Balor vs Breezedango

    Finn starts off the match laying into Breeze. Meanwhile AJ makes his way back onto the apron. Finn is in total control. AJ wants into the match but Finn tells him where to go allowing Breeze to escape and get Fandango into the match instead. Fandango starts to take control but Balor takes him down before making a hard tag to AJ. AJ comes into the ring and is in control though he is very clearly heated.

    Throughout the rest of the match it is clear Balor and Styles are superior competitors to their opponents but seem more intent on one upping their partner and giving them a hard tag instead of winning. The level of hardness on the tags gets to the point where they are slapping each other as they tag in.

    AJ is the one who has enough bringing Finn back over the ropes after another slap dragging him back into the ring. Both men start hitting each other with forearms as Breezedango watch on. Styles ends up on top as he sends Finn over the ropes before he hits him with a Phenomenal forearm on the outside. AJ gets back up shortly after shouting abuse at Finn before turning around into a Beauty shot. Breeze makes the cover as Breezedango pick up the win!

    Winners via pinfall: Breezedango: (9:44)

    Mauro Ranallo: And once again these two men implode.

    Byron Saxton: These two men just cannot co-exist with each other!

    Breezedango quickly get out of the ring not wasting any time posing and head up the ramp as Finn Balor slides back into the ring. AJ Styles is starting to rise back up to his feet.

    Tom Phillips: I think things are about to kick off once again!

    Both men stare at each other as they start to brawl in the ring one more time! Both men are laying into each other when the good brothers Gallows and Anderson run out to the ring! Anderson grabs hold of Balor and Gallows grabs hold of AJ as they talk to the pair telling them to cool it. Balor gets out of Anderson's grip before he can be seen walking to the back!

    Mauro Ranallo: Well it seems the only two people who does not want to see these two men battle are the Good brothers!

    We can see the Good brothers talking to AJ in the ring as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back, we can see the Good brothers still taking to AJ Styles who has calmed down slightly but not much.

    Luke Gallows: Listen, I get you two are not friends but this has to stop!

    Karl Anderson: Listen to us. We love you both. You are both like brothers to us and we hate seeing you two like this.

    AJ stands there for a moment as he thinks through what he wants to say.

    AJ Styles: I know you do and that is why I want you to stay out of it. Me and Finn need to settle this between us.

    AJ walks off as both of the Good Brothers look frustrated with the ongoing situation. Both men sigh as they look to go elsewhere when Shane McMahon walks onto the scene.

    Shane McMahon: You guys wanted to see me?

    Luke Gallows: Yes, we wanted to know why the Wyatt Family are given a chance to earn a tag team title shot but we ain't?

    Karl Anderson: Do we have to cause chaos on this show and ruin matches like the Wyatt Family?

    Shane McMahon: I figured you would have your hands full with your friends AJ Styles and Finn Balor?

    Luke Gallows: Listen Finn may be our boss and AJ may be our brother but they are grown-ups. If they wanted to fight there is little, we can do other than stopping them from going too far.

    Karl Anderson:And we came to the WWE to prove we are the best tag team in the world just like we showed in Japan.

    Shane McMahon: OK tell you what. Next week you will face a member of American Alpha and a member of the New Day. Whoever they choose from each team and if you beat them you will be added to the Summerslam match!

    Both men look happy with that as they too sweet each other.

    Shane McMahon: I was not done. You need to promise to stay away from the main event and not get involved in the match.

    Karl Anderson: Deal

    Both men shake hands with the commissioner as we cut to a video package as we can see a man stood on a bunch of rooftops. He starts to parkour down the roof as he jumps from wall to wall. He lands on the ground as we see the face of the man for the first time:

    John Morrison returns to Smackdown Live soon!

    Mauro Ranallo: The shaman of sexy is making his return to Tuesday nights! That man was a former IC and tag team champion in his first period in WWE.

    Byron Saxton: Well up next after the commercial break we will see Sarah Logan defend her Amazonian title for the first time when she takes on Paige!

    When we come back from the commercial break, we see Paige make her way to the ring to a massive pop from the crowd. She looks fired up ahead of a big opportunity.

    Tom Phillips: Paige made a quick return from the injuries she suffered at the Great American Bash and tonight she will be looking to get some payback.

    Paige gets in the ring yelling this is my house as she passes her black leather jacket to the ref. Sarah Logan makes her way out as she clutches her title as she walks down the ramp. She slides into the ring but before she can pass the title to the ref Paige attacks her looking for payback!

    The ref has to pull her away from Sarah Logan backing her up into the corner. She tells her to calm down or the match will be called off. Paige reluctantly agrees to this making her way back to the corner. The ref takes the belt from Sarah Logan as he passes it to the timekeeper. He then calls for the bell and the match is underway.
    Match 3: Amazonian title match: Sarah Logan (c) vs Paige

    As soon as the bell ring Paige goes right on the attack looking to batter the champion. In the first few minutes she is able to take control but after a couple of minutes Sarah Logan counters Paige hitting her with a DDT planting her head on the mat. That proves to be the turning point as from that moment Paige seems totally out of it.

    Commentary wonder if she is fully healed as Logan lets out a smug smirk looking to hurt Paige. From there it is a one side beatdown as Sarah Logan lays into Paige going after the head and neck area. She starts to stomp on the head of Paige who stops moving as the ref bends down before calling for the bell ending this match declaring Logan the winner via stoppage!

    Winner via stoppage and still Amazonian champion: Sarah Logan (6:48)

    Byron Saxton: That was sickening

    Tom Phillips: You have to wonder if Paige was even 100% before the match.

    Logan gets passed the title but she snatches it away from the ref instead eyeing up Paige who has only just gotten to her knees still looking disorientated as she takes her head off with a brutal shot to the skull! Paige looks like she is out cold but Logan slides out on the ring as she makes her way to the timekeepers' area as she grabs two chairs.

    Mauro Ranallo: Oh god I don't think she is done....

    She slides into the ring leaving one chair in the corner as Paige has not moved yet. The ref tries to stop her but she threatens to hit him with the chair. The ref backs off heading towards the ropes leaving Sarah Logan in the ring. She places one around the neck of Paige. She goes back to the ring corner as she grabs the other chair before slamming it down on Paige's neck!!!

    Mauro Ranallo: Momma Mia!!!

    Sarah Logan smiles happy with her handiwork as she starts to leave the ring as the ref makes his way over taking the chair away from the throat of Paige as he calls for medics to come to the ring.

    Byron Saxton: Paige has not moved since that brutal chair shot to the neck!

    Medics finally get in the ring to check on her and she has still not moved. Meanwhile Sarah Logan walks off to the back as we can see Paige be slowly moved onto a stretcher as we cut to an ad break. When we come back from the ad break, we see clips of Paige being put in a neck brace. She is shown being wheeled to the back as we cut back to the commentary team.

    Tom Phillips: As you have just seen Paige is being checked over by our wonderful medical team before she is taken to a local medical facility to checked over. We wish her all the best in her recovery.

    Byron Saxton: That attack was truly sickening.

    Mauro Ranallo: Sarah Logan living up to her nickname as the first lady of horror on Smackdown Live.

    We on that note cut back to Shane McMahon who is back inside his office. We see him speaking to what looks like a medical professional. He looks very worried as it is clear he is discussing what happened to Paige earlier in the night.

    Shane McMahon: Can you keep me updated on her condition please?

    The medical professional nods and he leaves the room shutting the door. The camera follows Shane McMahon as he turns around as we see Dana Brooke and Mickie James sat down in chairs.

    Mickie James: How is she?

    Shane McMahon: Not good. Are you two still sure you want the chance to fight Sarah Logan after what she just did.

    Dana Brooke:I came to Smackdown Live to break out on my own and become the top woman here. I ain't letting some creepy girl from the woods keep me down.

    Mickie James: I don't think I have encounter anyone as psychotic as Sarah Logan but I am a freakin legend. I am not running and hiding from her.

    Shane McMahon: OK next week it will be you two facing off against each other and the winner will be facing Sarah Logan for the Amazonian title on the Summerslam pre-show!

    Both women stare at each other with Mickie offering a handshake to Dana Brooke. Dana takes a moment to think before she accepts it as both women look at each other. We cut back to the ring as we can see the ring set up ready for Miz TV. We hear the music for The Miz hit to boos from the crowd as Mr Money in the bank walks to the ring with his briefcase in hand followed by his miztourage.

    Mauro Ranallo: It is time for the most must see show in sports-entertainment!

    Tom Phillips: And we will be hearing from Dean Ambrose after his loss to Bray Wyatt at the Great American Bash!

    The Miz stands in the ring whilst Breezedango rest on a sofa in the background as Miz looks towards the crowd. Miz still has the briefcase in his hand as he goes to speak.

    The Miz: Before I start off Miz TV I have something I need to talk about. The return of the corrupt and biased general manager Daniel Bryan!

    The crowd let out a massive cheer for the mention of Daniel Bryan who has been off TV looking after his newly born child. Miz does not seem happy with the reaction he is getting from the crowd.

    The Miz: I was mistreated by Daniel Bryan. He tried to hold me down due to jealousy. He is angry that he can no longer wrestle and I still can. Now I would be worried about getting screwed out of the chance to win the WWE title but I have this.

    The Miz raises the briefcase into the air before smirking.

    The Miz: This means any time I want I can become WWE champion. Again, maybe I will cash in at Summerslam and beat John Cena or Bray Wyatt again. Maybe I cash this in tonight!

    The crowd pop excited at the possibility of seeing a WWE title match tonight. However, The Miz smirks.

    The Miz: Nah not tonight you people are not worthy of seeing the A-lister become a two-time WWE champion!

    Cheap heat but it is effective as The Miz raises his hand into the air.

    The Miz: Hey when my hand goes up your mouth goes shut!

    More boos from the crowd as The Miz makes his way to one of the stools in the ring.

    The Miz: However right now I have a former WWE champion on my show. We will now be hearing for the first time since he lost at the Great American Bash Dean Ambrose!

    Dean Ambrose's music hits to a pop from the crowd as the kingpin of Smackdown Live marches down to the ring. He has a few noticeable scars on his body after the brutal war he had for the WWE title with Bray Wyatt.

    Byron Saxton: Ambrose does not look happy guys.

    Mauro Ranallo:
    Well we know how much being the top guy drove Dean Ambrose once he had the gold and you got to feel he is not happy to be out of the title picture for the moment after losing to Bray Wyatt.


    Ambrose takes a seat on one of the stools grabbing hold of a microphone as he waits for The Miz to speak.

    The Miz: Welcome to the show Dean.

    Ambrose does not respond which makes The Miz feel a bit uncomfortable before he looks to carry on.

    The Miz: OK then. You went through a hell of a battle with Bray Wyatt at the Great American Bash. Have you fully healed after what you put your body through?

    Dean Ambrose: I am fine. I have been put my body through worse on my way to this company. Bray Wyatt was the better man on the day.

    The Miz: Are you worried that you are now at the back of the line for a WWE title shot?

    Ambrose looks very annoyed at that question but composes himself before speaking.

    Dean Ambrose: No. I have had to take everything I want all of my life. I will destroy everyone in my way and get another shot at my WWE title even if it means starting from the back of the line.

    Noticeably we can see Dean Ambrose eyeing up the briefcase in The Miz's hand which The Miz notices as well.

    Dean Ambrose: I have a question Miz. Something I can't work out.

    The Miz: That is not how this show wor....

    Ambrose slaps the microphone out of his hand stopping Miz from speaking to a massive pop from the crowd.

    Dean Ambrose: Why did you not cash in after the match? Were you scared over what might happen?

    The Miz does not have an answer to this question as Ambrose lets out a smile.

    Dean Ambrose: You talk about being the future WWE champion but unlike you I am not scared of Bray Wyatt. I am not hiding in fear waiting for someone to take the title from him. I put my body through hell in that match and I would do that again right now if it meant I would become WWE champion for a second time.

    Massive pop for Dean Ambrose who smiles as he gets up close with The Miz.

    Dean Ambrose: This is why you will never be on the level of me or Daniel Bryan used to be.

    The Miz looks very angry now as Ambrose looks to carry on.

    Dean Ambrose: Bryan was never afraid to put his body on the line to win the WWE title. And that is why you will fail when you cash in that briefcase!

    Pop from the crowd but it turns to boos when the Miztourage attack Ambrose from behind hitting him a bunch of boots to the back. The Miz tells both of them to get Ambrose up off his feet. They hold him up dragging him off the mat before he takes his head off with the Money in the bank briefcase!

    Tom Phillips: Well The Miz did not take kindly to what Ambrose had to say.

    Byron Saxton: The truth hurts Tom.

    The Miz looks at the laid-out Dean Ambrose before signaling for Breezedango to follow him to the back happy with what he has done to Dean Ambrose as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back from the ad break, we see Zack Ryder already in the ring with Curt Hawkins psyching his friend up.

    Mauro Ranallo: The ultimate broski here looks to pick up a massive win against Roman Reigns after Reigns disrespected him earlier on tonight.

    Roman Reigns makes his way out to the ring to boos from the crowd as he has a smug look on his face. He looks at a rolex watch on his wrist before mouthing this won't take long.

    Tom Phillips:Reigns seems to be very confident ahead of this encounter.

    Byron Saxton: Well he has every reason to be confident. He has been on a hell of a roll in recent times and will once again look to show he is the top dog.

    Reigns steps inside the ring after passing the rolex to one of the people at ringside as the ref rings the bell getting this encounter underway.

    Match 4: Zack Ryder w/Curt Hawkins vs Roman Reigns

    Reigns early on does not put a lot of effort in as he is underestimating Zack Ryder thinking this will be a nice easy win for him. He learns very quickly how mistaken he is. Ryder takes control of the match as he seems to re-energized in his return to action and even gets a couple of near falls getting a very good reaction from the crowd. In the closing stages of the match Ryder goes for the rough ryder but Reigns counters with a powerbomb dropping Ryder. He follows up by running off the ropes and hitting Ryder with the spear for the win.

    Winner via pinfall: Roman Reigns (10:03)

    Roman Reigns rises to his feet looking annoyed by how tough that match was.

    Tom Phillips: Reigns knows he had a much tougher time then he was expecting.

    Byron Saxton: Ryder showed a lot of heart today.

    Curt Hawkins in the ring helps his friend up to his feet as the crowd boo and we see Mojo Rawley slide into the ring attacking both men! Mojo lays into Hawkins making sure he will not be a problem tossing him from the ring. Ryder tries to take Mojo down but he is clearly still exhausted after what he went through tonight. Mojo is able to take down the worn-out Ryder easily before planting him with the Hyper Driver.

    Mauro Ranallo: A cheap attack by the hype man Mojo Rawley.

    Mojo Rawley stands tall in the ring as he mocks the fans whilst we cut to a commercial break. When we come back, we see Mojo Rawley walking through the back like the cat who got the cream when he is approached by Shane McMahon.

    Shane McMahon: What do you think you are doing?

    Mojo Rawley: Teaching my former friend he ain't hype.

    Shane McMahon: Well since you want to attack him so bad next week you will face Zack Ryder.

    Mojo just smiles looking happy at the prospect of facing his former tag team partner in the ring. We then cut to Renee Young who is stood backstage ready for an interview.

    Renee Young: Hello would you please welcome my guest at this time Chris Jericho.

    Jericho walks into shot as the crowd let out a massive cheer for the legend who stands there for a moment before Renee goes to speak.

    Renee Young: Chris what did you think of Reigns's performance just now?

    Chris Jericho: Listen Roman Reigns is a great wrestler but I am Chris Jericho. There is no one who is better than me. I beat Stone cold Steve Austin and The Rock in the same night. I am the best in the world at what I do and at Summerslam I will not only add Roman Reigns to the list but I will beat him.

    Chris Jericho walks off as we cut back to the commentary desk.

    Mauro Ranallo: Strong words from Chris Jericho but up next we will have our main event for the evening as New Day and American Alpha team up in the main event to take on the Wyatt Family. Don't go anywhere.

    We cut to the commercial break and when we come back, we hear the music for the New Day hit as they walk down to the ring. There is none of the normal laughing and joking from the New Day as they make their way down to ringside.

    Byron Saxton: The New Day are looking for payback tonight after what happened to their tag team titles match at the Great American Bash.

    Tom Phillips: But you have to wonder how well New Day and American Alpha will be able to work together.

    Mauro Ranallo: I have to agree with Tom here. The Wyatts are united under one force and would follow their leader to the ends of the earth.

    We hear the music for the World tag team champions next who are now 245 days into their title reign. American Alpha also look very focused as they march to the ring. They join the New Day in the ring as both teams start talking to each other ahead of this encounter. The lights then go out as Bray Wyatt appears on the titantron with the whole of the Wyatt Family stood behind him.

    Bray Wyatt: Birmingham, Alabama we are here.

    He blows the light out as we hear the creepy music for the Wyatt Family play. They slowly make their way down to the ring with Sarah Logan at their side as well.

    Byron Saxton: The New Day have one thing over the Wyatt Family that may prove to be the difference.

    Tom Phillips:What is that?

    Byron Saxton: The power of positivity guys.

    Both men on commentary just shake their head as we cut back to the ring to see the Wyatt family stood in the ring with Bray holding the WWE title in the air before it is passed to timekeeper. Erick Rowan steps into the ring starting things off for the Wyatts whilst Big E starts for New Day and American Alpha.

    Main event: New Day and American Alpha vs The Wyatt Family w/Sarah Logan

    American Alpha and New Day work surprisingly well as a unit gelling with each other very well. The Wyatts as well work as a team as both groups are very evenly matched. On the outside Sarah Logan just watches not getting involved in the match instead looking transfixed on the action and her master. In the closing stages of the match it all breaks down as Xaiver Woods and Bray Wyatt are the legal men in the ring. On the outside of the ring we see Kane and Rowan battling with Big E and Jason Jordan. Kofi fights with Ziggler with both men having a lot of experience with each other and Gable takes on Harper. In the ring Woods tries to overcome Bray Wyatt but in the end, he gets hit with the Sister Abigail for the 3 count as the Wyatt Family insert themselves into the World tag team titles match at Summerslam!

    Winners via pinfall: The Wyatt Family (18:37)

    Mauro Ranallo: The Wyatt Family have picked up another massive win.

    Tom Phillips:You have to wonder who could possibly stop this unit.

    However fairly shortly after the bell rings we see the Good brothers run down to the ring with steel chairs in hand.

    Byron Saxton: Well Shane McMahon said they could not get involved in the match but he never said anything about after the match!

    They slide down to the ring as they take down everyone in sight with steel chairs including the New Day and American Alpha getting a mixed reaction from the crowd. The only two they are unable to take down are Harper and Bray who dodge the final chair shots before dropping the pair. However, as they stand tall in the ring the crowd give a mixed reaction as John Cena climbs over the barricade from the crowd!

    Mauro Ranallo: It is John Cena!

    Bray and Luke Harper have not seen this as John Cena slides into the with the ring as he connects with an attitude adjustment dropping Luke Harper to the mat. Bray looks around having seen what just happened. He tries to attack John Cena but he ducks out of the way before he scoops Bray up off the mat planting him with an attitude adjustment! John Cena bends down over the fallen champion as he picks up the WWE title holding it in the air as we fade to black.

    Re: WWE: A Different Future

    July 24th
    Washington, D.C

    We start off the show with a cold open as we are in Drake Maverick's office as he seems to be in the middle of a discussion with the commissioner for the show Stephanie McMahon.

    Drake Maverick: Listen Kevin Owens keeps talking about how he wants to get a chance at the World title. Well tonight in the main event he can face the World champion Sami Zayn.


    Stephanie McMahon: I know your game Drake. I know you are doing this to try to weaken my pick but that is fine. I have made a match for Becky versus an old rival as well. She will go one on one against Natayla later on tonight.

    Drake just smiles as the camera cuts away to the usual introduction for the show before we cut to the commentary desk.

    Michael Cole:Welcome to Monday Night Raw and we have a massive show to look forward to tonight.

    Booker T:Yes, Michael in the main event we will see the eternal rivals Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn clash in the main event!

    Corey Graves: Not only that but the Queen of the Harts Natayla takes on Becky Lynch.

    Michael Cole: But to start the show off we will be seeing the Dudley Boyz take on the Hardys to see who will be the next number one contender for the WWE tag team titles!

    Corey Graves: If I was the Revival, I would be annoyed this match is even taking place. They have already beaten both teams in recent times and should be moving on to new challengers!

    The Dudley Boyz make their way out to the ring looking pumped up as they march down to the ring.

    Booker T:The Dudleys know they are in the twilight of their career and this could be their last chance to get their hands on the tag team titles.

    The Hardys make their way out to the ring as they headbang and slap hands with the fans on the way to the ring. Both men look super fired up heading into this match before joining their rivals from the past inside the squared circle. Both teams trade insults in the ring before Matt Hardy starts for the Hardys and D-Von Dudley starts for the Dudley Boyz.

    Match 1: Number one contender's match for the WWE tag team titles: The Dudley Boyz vs The Hardy Boyz

    Both teams put on a good showing due to their chemistry. They push each other to the limit and pick up numerous near falls throughout the encounter. In the closing stages we have Matt Hardy on the top rope after Jeff has taken out D-Von Dudley on the outside of the ring! Bubba Ray Dudley however starts to fight Matt Hardy on the top rope before hitting a super German suplex holding the bridge! 1 2 3 Both men's shoulders are pinned to the mat! The ref rings the bell calling this a draw!

    Winners via pinfall: Draw (13:16)

    Corey Graves: So, who are the new number one contender for the WWE tag team titles?

    In the ring both Matt Hardy and Bubba Ray Dudley get to their feet in the ring joined by their partners as they look to speak to the ref to find out who the number one contenders for the tag team titles are. The ref calls if a draw before Bubba Ray gets in his face. This leads to the Hardys shoving the Dudleys.

    Booker T: Oh this is not going to end well guys.

    The Dudleys do not take this well as they punch the Hardy boys in the jaw starting off a fight in the ring. The Dudley Boyz gain the upper hand laying out the Hardy Boyz as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back, we see Drake Maverick talking to a stage hand when he is approached by the Revival.

    Dash Wilder: Hey Drake did you see the match?

    Scott Dawson: Yeah neither team won so maybe it is time to move on from teams from the past and give us some new challengers.

    Drake Maverick lets out a smirk before turning around to speak to the tag team champions.

    Drake Maverick:I did guys. It was hell of a match and they both picked up the pinfall.

    Both of the Revival smiles fade as they seem to realize where this is going.

    Drake Maverick: And since the match ended in a draw, I see it as both teams earning a title shot so next week you will be defending your tag team titles in a triple threat match!

    The Revival do not look happy whilst Drake smiles.

    Dash Wilder: What do you mean? We could lose our titles without even being pinned

    Scott Dawson: We have beaten both teams already this is ridiculous!

    Drake Maverick: Then you should have no problem beating them again guys.

    Drake Maverick walks off as the tag team champions look on furious with his decision. We cut to elsewhere backstage as we can see Cody Rhodes with someone, we have not seen for a long time... Brandi Rhodes! She seems to trying to calm him down as she speaks to him.

    Brandi Rhodes:Listen honey I know you have had a tough time in the last few months. What with Sandow ditching you and your brother being injured. But you still got me and I am coming back to help you get back to the top where we belong.

    Cody Rhodes smiles as he kisses his wife who looks to carry on.

    Brandi Rhodes: You are the hardest working man in this company, you have been helping train me so I can step into the ring like you.

    Cody Rhodes: And you have come a long way honey.

    Brandi Rhodes: Hey I have been learning from the best. But we need to focus on getting you to the top. You should be an international superstar. You are part of one the greatest wrestling families the world has ever known. No you are part of the greatest wrestling family. It is time to start opening my mouth and opening these people's minds.

    They kiss one more time as we cut back to the ring to see two local jobbers stood ready for a match.

    Michael Cole: Well looks like Brandi Rhodes has come back to the WWE to help her husband get his career back on track.

    Corey Graves: She is not wrong. He is part of a dynasty and is a 7-time tag team champion in WWE and a 2-time IC champion. He has just not been able to make it to the next level.

    Whilst they are discussing what we have just seen we see Zelina Vega walk to the ring leading Hunico and Kalisto to ringside. Both men look a lot more focused then they did two weeks ago as they slide into the ring ready to face their opponents. Hunico starts for his team as the ref rings the bell.

    Match 2: Hunico and Kalisto w/Zelina Vega vs Doug Art and Brian Polk

    A much shorter match then the one they had two weeks ago as Hunico and Kalisto are a lot more aggressive throughout the encounter battering their opponents. The pair pick up the win with Hunico hitting the falling star.

    Winners via pinfall: Hunico and Kalisto (2:21)

    Corey Graves:Now that was a dominant performance.

    Booker T: Zelina Vega is working her magic already on the pair!

    Zelina applauds the pair who look happy to have pleased their manager with their performance as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back from the commercial break, we see Elias is sat on a crate backstage as he is playing some music on his guitar. Mike Rome walks up to him looking to ask a few questions.

    Mike Rome: Excuse me Elias?

    He gets no response as Elias carries on tuning his guitar.

    Mike Rome: Elias?

    Once again Elias just ignores Mike Rome fiddling with his guitar.

    Mike Rome: Elias I just want to ask you a few questions.

    Elias looks up looking annoyed before going to speak.

    Elias: Do you know not to interrupt a musician whilst he is song writing? What do you want? Make it quick.

    Mike Rome: I wanted to know how you feel after picking up a win on your début against a former World champion?

    Elias does not even respond for a moment before he turns back to Mike.

    Elias: Why are you shocked? I am a talented individual and soon the WWE universe will learn that WWE stands for Walk With Elias.

    Elias walks off leaving Mike Rome stood there as we cut to Drake Maverick's office once again as he is stood with Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins. Becky is doing some stretches as she gets ready for her match with Natayla.

    Seth Rollins: Listen I want a warm up match. I need to face someone as angry as Kevin Owens.

    Drake Maverick: Who did you want to face?

    Seth Rollins: I have a name in mind.

    Becky Lynch finishes stretching as she turns to both men.

    Becky Lynch: Right and now is time for me to practice what I am going to do to Stephanie when I get the chance.

    Becky heads off towards the ring as she gets ready for her match. We cut back to the ring as we see Natalya making her entrance. She smiles as they crowd give her a small pop after her recent face turn.

    Michael Cole: Natalya has been put in this match by Stephanie as a means to punish Becky.

    Booker T:
    Becky is a fighter so I am not sure she will see this as a punishment.


    Becky Lynch makes her way out next to a large pop from the crowd. She joins Natalya in the ring. Natalya looks to offer a handshake to her former rival but Bekcy Lynch is clearly wary choosing to not agree to the handshake. Camera cuts to Stephanie McMahon who is shown watching the match backstage.

    Match 3: Becky Lynch vs Natalya

    Becky Lynch and Natalya spend a lot of their match trying to lock in their signature submissions on each other and wearing down the main limbs. There are a lot of counters throughout the match with both women knowing each other fairly well but in the end, Becky is able to get the dis-arm-her locked in on Natalya forcing her to tap out!

    Winner via submission: Becky Lynch (9:51)

    Michael Cole: Another win for Becky Lynch as she keeps her run going on Monday night Raw!

    We cut to the backstage area as we can see Stephanie McMahon watching the match backstage shaking her head. Back in the ring Natalya is back on her feet as she once again offers Becky a handshake. Becky this time accepts it before she walks off up the ramp celebrating the victory. We cut to a commercial break after seeing Becky's celebration as we hear the music for the monster among men Braun Strowman.

    Booker T: Last week Braun laid waste to everyone in the ring and showed how much jeopardy Zayn's title reign is in at Summerslam guys.

    Corey Graves: That is if Zayn even makes it to Summerslam considering his past history in matches against Kevin Owens.

    He stands in the ring with the money in the bank briefcase in hand before he looks to speak to the crowd.

    Braun Strowman: Last week I sent a message. I destroyed Sami Zayn and Seth Rollins like I will destroy everyone who gets in my way!

    The crowd boo Braun Strowman as he looks to carry on.

    Braun Strowman: The clock is ticking on Sami Zayn's title reign because at Summerslam I take that World title when I give him these hands.

    Braun raises the Money in the bank briefcase into the air before he looks to carry on speaking.

    Braun Strowman: And once I replace this with the World title everyone will fall in my path. Kevin Owens can try to manipulate his way into a title shot or Rollins can try to come for this title but I will destroy them and break them like I broke Brock Lesnar!

    The crowd boo for the mention of what happened on the Raw after Wrestlemania earlier this year.

    Braun Strowman: I even ended the career of the Big Show!

    More boos for Braun as he gloats over ending the career of the giant.

    Braun Strowman: Compare the size of those two men to Sami Zayn and you will see he stands no chance in overcoming me. I will break him in half.

    More boos from the crowd but it quickly turns to cheers when we hear the music for Sami Zayn. The World champion makes his way onto the ramp looking fired up. He has the World title on his shoulder as he makes his way towards the ring.

    Corey Graves: This is not a good idea Sami.

    Booker T: I don't think Sami cares whether this is a good idea or not. The boy is a fighting champion and he ain't going to run from anyone.

    Sami Zayn stays on the outside of the ring but does not step inside just yet.

    Sami Zayn: Don't worry I will come inside to fight you. I just don't want to be cheap shotted again.

    Pop from the crowd as Strowman looks on unimpressed.

    Sami Zayn: You see I have heard what you have had to say about what you did to Brock Lesnar and Big Show. And I have to say you are right. They are a lot bigger than me. But that Is where I have the advantage.

    Zayn pauses for a moment as he walks around the ring.

    Sami Zayn: You see I have the pace to out speed you and wear you down. Those men, they can come close to trying to match you in power but I am smart enough to know that will not work.

    Sami Zayn slides back into the ring joining Braun Strowman inside the ring.

    Sami Zayn: And I am not the Sami Zayn of a few years ago as I have learned a few tricks.

    Sami Zayn leaps into the air stunning Braun with a dropkick to the leg taking the giant off his feet!

    Booker T: Looks like Sami wants a measure of payback for the attack last week!

    Sami Zayn keeps up the attack as he picks up his title before using it to clobber Braun Strowman in the head as payback for the shot with the briefcase! Sami takes a moment as he climbs to the top rope before diving off hitting him with a tornado DDT planting Strowman's head down onto the mat! Zayn rises up to his feet as he holds the World title in the air as he goes up the ramp having sent a message to the monster among men.

    Corey Graves: Well I mean unless Sami is looking to escape via DQ he won't be able to use the title to take down Strowman at Summerslam!

    Michael Cole: I think tonight was more about getting revenge for the shot with the briefcase on last week's show Corey. Sami Zayn is showing Braun that he is not going down without a fight.

    We see Braun start to rise to his feet looking furious as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back from the commercial break, we can see Hideo Itami stood in the ring waiting for his opponent. We then hear the music for Seth Rollins.

    Booker T: Well Seth Rollins said he wanted a tune up and this will be a hell of a tune up!

    Corey Graves: Itami is a skilled competitor and famous for his hard strikes. He likes hurting people and maybe that is why Seth Rollins would have picked him for this tune up match.

    Michael Cole: That could be the case Corey though he might be biting off more than he can chew by taking on the angry Hideo Itami tonight.

    Match 4: Seth Rollins vs Hideo Itami

    This one ends up being a high paced affair right from the start. Hideo lays into Seth Rollins with a number of strikes and hard kicks. He also shouts at the start of the match that he should have more respect than to pick him as a warm up match! Seth Rollins gives as good as he gets giving Hideo a bunch of hard strikes back taking control of this match. In the closing stages of the contest Rollins is able to slide out of a GTS attempt by Hideo Itami before he connects with a pedigree planting Hideo to the mat. However, he is not done there as he grabs hold Hideo lifting him into the air before dropping him with a pop-up powerbomb for the three-count sending a message to Kevin Owens!

    Winner via pinfall: Seth Rollins (14:59)

    Booker T: Seth Rollins is sending a message to Stephanie McMahon and Kevin Owens here tonight!

    Corey Graves: Hideo Itami pushed Seth Rollins to his limit but you have to think Kevin Owens will have been watching that intently.

    Seth Rollins starts walking up the ramp as he celebrates the win on the top of the ramp facing the fans when he gets clobbered from behind by Kevin Owens! He lays into Seth Rollins with a number of punches as Seth is clearly worn out having just gone through a tough match with Hideo Itami. He finishes it up by lifting Seth Rollins up into the air connecting with a pop-up powerbomb onto the ramp laying out Seth Rollins. Kevin Owens lets out a smirk as we cut to a commercial break as we see Seth Rollins gripping his back in pain.

    When we come back from the commercial break, we see Becky Lynch looking very fired up walking through the back when she bumps into her friend Sami Zayn.

    Becky Lynch: Did you see what he just did to Seth?

    Sami Zayn: Yeah I saw. It is what Kevin Owens does. But it is fine I will beat him in the main event just like I did last year to banish him from this brand.

    Becky Lynch: Well hopefully I can do something similar in helping Seth Rollins remove Stephanie McMahon.

    Sami Zayn: You would be doing us all a favour there.

    Both of the friends hug as we cut back towards the ring as we focus on the Raw commentary desk.

    Michael Cole: Well up next, we will be doing a live interview with Shinsuke Nakamura and Samoa Joe ahead of their US title match next week on Monday Night Raw.

    The dual satellite link appears on the screen as we can see both men appear on the screen. Samoa Joe has an air of confidence about him whilst Shinsuke sits their very composed ahead of the interview. Corey Graves stands up asking the first question.

    Corey Graves: I have been watching both of you since you joined WWE and fought in NXT. I saw your battles over the NXT title and how much it took out of both you as you fought for that belt. Now as we know Shinsuke walked away from that feud as the champion. How does that make you feel Joe?

    Joe looks annoyed at his past defeats being brought up.

    Samoa Joe: Shinsuke may have gotten the upper hand against me in NXT but I am a different kind of beast to who I was in NXT. I have been nigh unstoppable since I have come to Monday night Raw. Shinsuke is a tough competitor but I will choke him out.

    Shinsuke Nakamura: Those battles in NXT show I can beat you Joe. You lost so bad you fled to Monday night Raw.

    Samoa Joe: I DID NOT FLEE! I came to this show and became World champion for over 200 days!

    Shinsuke being the troll he is lets out a smirk knowing he has got to Samoa Joe. Meanwhile Michael Cole now stands up looking to speak.

    Michael Cole: Shinsuke since you have joined the Monday night Raw roster you have faced some tough opponents. Where would you rank Joe compared to those foes?

    Shinsuke Nakamura: Above all of them. Joe was my toughest challenge in NXT but I overcame him. Just like I overcame Roman Reigns. I came to America to be a champion and next week I will become the US champion.

    Corey Graves: Joe your thoughts on what Shinsuke has just said?

    Samoa Joe: Listen I may not like Shinsuke Nakamura but I respect him. But there is no one stronger than me. I have been taking names for years on my path to the WWE and now I am making up for lost time.

    Michael Cole: Joe when you fought in NXT, Shinsuke was able to put you away with the Kinsaha. Do you have a plan to stop him from using that again?

    Samoa Joe: Once again you are bringing up the past when it does not relate to now. I am not the same person I was one year ago. But let's talk about last year. Whether I held the NXT title or the World title, the majority of last year I was a champion. Yes, I may have lost rarely but for the majority of the year I was the top star on whichever brand I was on.

    Joe lifts up the US title into the air before carrying on.

    Samoa Joe: And now I hold this title instead of a World title this is the most important belt on this show. Because I am toughest superstar to beat on this roster and once, I lose a title I get one back like that!

    Corey Graves: Any last words Shinsuke?

    Shinsuke Nakamura: Joe you will lose the same way you did with a knee to the face.

    Samoa Joe: You try saying that when I am choking you out on the mat.

    The screen fades away from the two competitors as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back, we can see the Indian nightmares are making their way to the ring to boos from the crowd.

    Michael Cole: Well up next, we are going to see Mustafa Ali and the True Gentleman team up to take on the Indian nightmares.

    Booker T: Well Mustafa Ali has had enough of these 3 men and looks to put them away tonight.

    We next hear the music for the True Gentleman as they make their way down to the ring to a decent pop from the crowd. They stand on the ramp when they are joined by Mustafa Ali who looks fired up. All 3 men make their way to the ring ready to fight the Indian Nightmares with Mustafa Ali starting off for their team whilst Samir Singh starts for his team.

    Match 5: Mustafa Ali and True Gentleman vs The Indian Nightmares

    The only time the Indian nightmares do well is when Jinder Mahal is in the ring for them. However every time Ali is in the ring, he chooses not to fight him. In the end Jack Gallagher puts away Samir Singh with the gentleman dropkick for the win.

    Winners via pinfall: Mustafa Ali and True Gentleman (8:22)

    Michael Cole: Well a nice win for Mustafa Ali and the True Gentleman tonight.

    Corey Graves: I can't see Mustafa Ali being happy until he gets his hands on Jinder Mahal one on one.

    As they discuss the match we have just seen we cut to see Kevin Owens backstage with Stephanie McMahon.

    Stephanie McMahon: Kevin tonight I want to see the old Kevin Owens. The Owens who made his début by powerbombing his best friend onto the ring apron. The Owens who won the NXT title in a matter of months. The Kevin Owens who beat John Cena in his first match on the main roster. Destroy Sami Zyan like you will destroy Seth Rollins at Summerslam!

    Kevin Owens just starts smiling as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back from the commercial break, we hear the crowd booing as the BFF's make their way down to the ring.

    Corey Graves: These people should be on their feet for the stunning Women's champion Summer Rae!

    Michael Cole: Well in two weeks time Bayley will get the chance to win her Women's title back off of Summer Rae after losing it after a brutal hell in a cell match with Sasha Banks.

    Corey Graves: Summer Rae used her genius to take the title from Bayley and now she will keep it. Bayley is too naïve to overcome Summer Rae.

    Summer Rae stands in the ring with the Women's title around her waist whilst she is flanked by her two friends Carmella and Tamina. She gets ready to speak.

    Summer Rae: In 2 weeks time I will show you people what a true Women's champion looks like. All week online I have been hearing stupid things from people online calling me a “diva”. Saying that Bayley is a “real women's champion”.

    Summer is doing quotation marks with her fingers whilst saying this getting booed as she mocks them but she does not seem done.

    Summer Rae: Let me tell you something. You people may think calling me a diva is an insult? I am a diva and I am proud.

    Boos from the crowd but Summer looks to carry on.

    Summer Rae: Yeah I look hot but I also know how to wrestle. This so called women's revolution? Remember who was Paige's main rival in NXT. It was not Charlotte or Sasha or Becky or Bayley. No it was me. But now I have this.

    She holds the Women's title in the air.

    Summer Rae: And this proves I am the best woman in the business today.

    Carmella steps forward with a microphone as she goes to speak next.

    Carmella: You can call us untalented or mock us online like the little geeks you are but whilst Summer holds this, we are the most dominant force in this company. And we are F A B....

    Before Carmella can finish her sentence Bayley's music hits to a pop from the crowd. Noticeably her arm is not in a cast but is covered in tape as she makes her way out to the ring.

    Bayley: Summer and Carmella you can label yourself whatever you want but I personally think you are a coward!

    Crowd cheer that line from Bayley who looks fired up as the BFF's looks annoyed in the ring.

    Bayley: You had to have your two friends beat me down just to have a chance of taking my title. When I grew up watching wrestling, I watched people actually fight to become champions. Not waiting till someone was weakened before pouncing.

    Summer Rae: Hey maybe I am just smarter than those “legends”.

    Boos from the crowd for that cheap heat. Bayley shakes her head as she points towards the ring.

    Bayley: Well how about I face one of your friends next week in that ring?

    Carmella does not respond as Tamina borrows the microphone from Summer Rae.

    Tamina: You are on.

    Tamina keeps it short and sweet (probably for the best) as she passes the microphone back to Summer Rae who smiles.

    Summer Rae: But how about right now if you are not a coward why don't you fight us in this ring.

    Summer Rae drops the microphone as she cockily smirks daring Bayley to make her way down to the ring.

    Bayley: Wow you actually think I am that naïve? I have been through hell in my war with Sasha Banks and I am not falling for that trap.

    Bayley drops the microphone on the mat heading towards the back choosing not to fall for the trap. Summer Rare stands in the ring looking annoyed as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back we can see Ember Moon make her way to the ring.

    Michael Cole: Well we heard what Bayley and Summer Rae had to say ahead of their Women's title match at Summerslam but right now Ember Moon is about to have a “fair opportunity” as promised by Stephanie McMahon.

    Corey Graves: Stephanie McMahon is a fair boss and is always looking to give talent a fair opportunity.

    Booker T: Please tell me you did not just say that?

    Ember Moon stands in the ring when this music plays...



    The Iiconics appear on the ramp getting a mixed reaction from the crowd as they both smile.

    Corey Graves: Well Monday Night Raw just became iconic!

    Peyton Royce: The long awaited arrival of Billie Kay

    Billie Kay:and Peyton Royce...

    Both: The Iiconics!!!


    Peyton Royce: But right now we can see someone in the ring who is not quite iconic.

    Billie Kay: I mean nor is Washington D.C.

    Cheap heat from the pair as they laugh like schoolgirls on the outside of the ring.

    Peyton Royce: But tonight, one of us will be making our Monday night Raw début!

    Both women scream and clap to themselves on the outside of the ring as Ember looks on unimpressed.

    Billie Kay: I think it should be you.

    Peyton Royce: No it should be you.

    Billie Kay: No you

    Peyton Royce: OK if you insist.

    Peyton Royce slides into the ring as Ember Moon just looks happy to finally have the chance to wrestle instead of listening to the pair talk as the ref rings the bell to start the match.

    Match 6: Ember Moon vs Peyton Royce w/ Billie Kay

    Ember Moon starts the match off laying into Peyton Royce early on clearly annoyed by how long it took for this match to get under way. However throughout the match Billie Kay keeps interfering allowing Peyton to take control and in the end she hits Ember Moon with the Venus fly trap after yet another distraction.

    Winner via pinfall Peyton Royce (5:42)

    Corey Graves: What an iconic début tonight for Peyton Royce!

    The two women stand in the ring mocking not just Ember Moon but the crowd as well.

    Michael Cole: Well up next we are going to show you the interview I had with Charlotte Flair ahead of her number one contender's match with Sasha Banks at Summerslam.

    We cut to the pre-recorded interview as we can see the Queen of the Women's division sat down ready to be interviewed by Michael Cole.

    Michael Cole: Welcome Charlotte.

    Charlotte: Thanks for having me Michael.

    Michael Cole: First question, are you 100% fit after your injury last year.

    Charlotte: Yes Michael. I spent months clawing my way back to this point. I have never suffered an injury like that before. But I have come back stronger and I want to take my spot back at the top of this company.

    Michael Cole: How did it feel to miss Wrestlemania?

    Charlotte looks down at the floor before she responds.

    Charlotte: It hurt. The year before I was on top of the World. I had become the new Women's champion and made it clear I was the face of the division. But it all slipped away.

    Michael Cole: Would it be fair to say that all started at Summerslam last year?

    Charlotte nods.

    Charlotte: Losing to Sasha Banks at Summerslam last year hurt. I was weak. I was used Dana Brooke when I did not need to and that made me weak. I am genetically superior to everyone. I have this business in my blood. But that is why this match is perfect. It is a chance for redemption as I can avenge my loss from last year. I can erase my loss from last year and put myself back in the Women's title picture where I belong.

    Michael Cole: What do you make of Sasha Banks's transformation whilst you have been out injured?

    Charlotte: Someone had to fill the void at the top of the division. Sasha is a hell of an athlete. It would be stupid to say otherwise. But all she did whilst I was gone was show her true colours. She has always been an arrogant self centred bitch!

    Michael Cole: I have one more question. If you win at Summerslam who would you rather face. Bayley or Summer Rae?

    Charlotte takes a moment to consider the question before responding.

    Charlotte: It does not matter. I respect Bayley and Summer is a former ally back when I was not sure of myself. Whoever it is will just be in the way of me becoming a 3 time Women's champion. WOO

    Michael Cole: Thanks for your time Charlotte.

    We cut to a commercial break on that note and when we return we see Braun storming through the back when he is stopped by the Raw general manager.

    Drake Maverick: Braun I know how mad you are but please do not ruin my main event.

    Braun Strowman: I am going to destroy Sami Zayn right now

    Braun barges past Drake

    Drake Maverick: You do that and your title match no longer happens at Summerslam?

    Braun turns back round.

    Braun Strowman: You can't do that.

    Drake Maverick: Actually until that bell rings your briefcase is not cashed in and as your boss I can think of numerous ways to remove that title shot or remove Sami Zayn from the building. Go home Braun.

    Braun Strowman: I am not finished with him yet.

    Braun storms off into the car park clearly annoyed as we cut to the ring to see Ariya Davari stood in the ring ready for a match. We hear the music for his opponent as the king of the Cruiserweights makes his way to the ring looking in a bad mood. He slides into the ring looking all business.

    Match 7: Neville vs Ariya Davari

    Davari tries his best to keep up with Neville but he is not on the same level as the King who puts him away in quick fashion with the rings of Saturn.

    Winner via submission: Neville (2:47)

    Michael Cole: A very dominant victory for Neville tonight.

    Booker T: Neville once again proving why he is the king of the Cruiserweights.

    Neville takes the title from the ref when he gets attacked from behind by Tommaso Ciampa! Ciampa looks almost deranged in the ring as he takes the rising Davari's head off with a high knee for good measure!

    Corey Graves: Ciampa is not taking what happened last week lying down.

    Ciampa picks up Neville off the mat before he tosses him over the top rope to boos from the crowd as he stalks his prey. He picks Neville up by his hair before sending him flying into the steel steps! Ciampa is not done as he makes his way under the ring apron before he pulls out a steel chair.

    He waits for Neville to get back to his knees before smashing him in the back with the chair. He lays into him with numerous shots with the chair till it is clear Neville's back is in agony. He picks up the prone Neville before connecting with a Project Ciampa for good measure. He gets up as a bunch of referees are coming down to check on Neville. Ciampa meanwhile walks backwards up the ramp happy with the job he has done.

    Michael Cole: A sickening attack by Ciampa there.

    Corey Graves: Ciampa has made it clear he will destroy anyone who gets in between him and his goals. Even his former friends.

    We cut to a commercial break as the ref starts to help Neville to his feet. When we come back from the commercial break we see Sasha Banks walking through the back when she is stopped by Charly Caruso.

    Charly Caruso: Sasha what did you think of the interview we saw earlier in the show?

    Sasha Banks: The boss does not have time to watch Charlotte Flair cry about her injuries or talk about her family. It does not matter what Charlotte has to say because at Summerslam I will beat like I did last year and I will take my title back from whoever is still holding it.

    On that note we see the BFF's walk into shot. Summer Rae stands front and center looking unimpressed.

    Summer Rae: I made you once Sasha. I know how to break you.

    The BFF's walk past Sasha Banks who does not flinch clearly not worried about the threat from Summer Rae as we cut back to the ring. We hear the music for Kevin Owens as he walks to the ring ready for the main event of the show.

    Booker T: Guys it is time for the main event.

    Corey Graves: Kevin Owens will be looking to bring the NXT version of himself and destroy Sami Zayn tonight per the request of Stephanie McMahon.

    Kevin Owens walks up and down the ring looking very angry ahead of this match as the World champion Sami Zayn makes his way to the ring to a massive pop from the crowd. He sprints down to the ring before sliding in as he jumps on Owens getting this match started with a bang! The ref is forced to ring the bell getting this started.

    Main Event: Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn

    Both men wail on each other right from the start of the match due to the intense nature of their long rivalry with neither man letting up. Both men are evenly matched throughout the encounter. However in the closing stages of the match Owens gets distracted as Seth Rollins makes his way out to the ring allowing Sami Zayn to send him into the corner of the ring before connecting with the Hulleva kick for the win!

    Winner via pinfall: Sami Zayn (13:01)

    Michael Cole: Sami Zayn defeats his former best friend once again!

    Corey Graves: With a massive assist going to Seth Rollins.

    Booker T: Hey you know what they say about karma Corey?

    Seth Rollins joins the World champion in the ring before he turns to rising Kevin Owens who is on his knees. He takes a moment making his way to the corner of the ring before planting Owens with the curb stomp getting some payback for earlier in the night. Sami Zayn carries on celebrating whilst Owens rolls out of the ring as Monday Night Raw comes to a close with the pair standing tall as we fade to black.

    SD Live Re: WWE: A Different Future

    July 25th
    Richmond, Virginia

    We start the show off after the usual introduction as the number one contender for the WWE title John Cena makes his way to the ring to a mixed reaction from the crowd.

    Mauro Ranallo: Welcome to Smackdown Live and we are starting the show with the most divisive man in sports-entertainment John Cena!

    Tom Phillips:And last week we say John Cena gain the upper hand over the WWE champion.

    John Cena stands in the ring staring out to the fans as lets out a smile.

    John Cena: So last week I sent a message to Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper. You see there is one thing I have left to achieve in this business. I have one box left to check. One thing on my bucket list in the WWE. Winning that WWE title one more time!

    A mixed reaction from the crowd as Cena looks to carry on.

    John Cena: As a great man once said you have got to beat the man to be the man. Well Ric Flair is retired and I don't think attacking his daughter is what he meant.

    John Cena chuckles to himself after his terrible joke before he looks to carry on.

    John Cena: So, my only way to beat the man Ric Flair is to win the WWE title one more time even if it means going through a monster like Bray Wyatt.

    Boos for the mention of the creepy cult leader with a small amount of cheers from the fans with some falling under the spell of the creepy leader.

    John Cena: You keep talking about the title being your holy grail but that title is the holy grail for every man on the show. All of your career Bray you have been the hunter but now you are the hunted. And no matter how many people you put in your way I will knock them down!

    John Cena looks fired up when he gets interrupted by The Miz? The Miz makes his way out to the ring followed by Breezedango. The Miz leads front and center with his money in the bank briefcase in hand.

    Byron Saxton: What is The Miz doing out here?

    All 3 men join John Cena in the ring who seems to be curious as to why The Miz and the Miztourage are out here right now.

    The Miz: Oh Cena. You always look past me just like Daniel Bryan does. Look at what I have in my hands. I have the Money in the Bank briefcase! And unlike you I know how to use!

    John Cena: What like a cheap coward?

    The Miz: Cute. I actually won when I cashed this in. Whereas you are only one of two people who have failed to cash this in. And the other person is my former loser of a stunt double!

    Boos for the cheap shot at Damien Sandow but The Miz is not done there.

    The Miz: Your focus should not be on Bray Wyatt. It should be on me. Because even if you get past Bray Wyatt you will have to be looking over your shoulder as the man who beat you in the main event of Wrestlemania will beat you for the WWE title and end your record-breaking title reign in seconds!

    More boos from the crowd as John Cena actually looks annoyed by the comments from the Miz for once.

    John Cena: It is nice to see whilst I am away you finally grew a pair. How about you now follow in my footsteps and make some movies that don't skip to the straight to DVD stage?

    John Cena gets a big ooooh from the crowd before he steps forward when Fandango and Breeze step in between him and Miz. John Cena smiles at this development.

    John Cena: Maybe I was wrong? You still got fools protecting you?

    Tyler Breeze: The Miz is furthering our careers and helping us become A-list stars.

    Fandango: Yes, very soon I will be on dancing in the stars and Breeze will be taking part in the biggest fashion shows in Milan once again.

    John Cena: Is that the garbage he is selling you? The Miz for years all you can do is hide behind someone. Whether it is Alex Riley, your stunt double, your wife or these two clowns. Y'know what Daniel Bryan is right.

    That struck a nerve as Cena gets a massive cheer from the crowd as The Miz looks like snapping!

    John Cena: You really do wrestle like a coward.

    The Miz looks to attack Cena but he is held back by Fandango who is looking to keep his mentor under control. However, Tyler Breeze steps forward.

    Tyler Breeze:How about I fight you tonight and prove that The Miz is leading me to greatness?

    Cena smiles.

    Before John Cena can say anything, we hear the music of the commissioner for Smackdown Live hit as he comes out with a microphone.

    Shane McMahon: I was looking for an opponent for our number one contender in the main event so thank you Breeze for offering. Tonight in the main event of the show it will be Tyler Breeze vs John Cena!

    Both men stare at each other as Fandango helps keep his mentor calm whilst Breeze and Cena stare each other down as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back from the commercial break, we hear a number of “10” chants as Tye Dillinger is making his way to the ring for the next match.

    Mauro Ranallo: Well we found out just before the commercial break the Prince of Pretty will be taking on John Cena in the main event of the show tonight!

    Tom Phillips: It is a big opportunity for Tyler Breeze to prove himself against one of the best of all time.

    As Tye plays to the fans the music hits for Zack Sabre Jr as he makes his way to the ring to cheers from the crowd as the former IC champion looks to get back on form. He ignores the fans however as he walks to the ring.

    Byron Saxton: Sabre knows he faces a tough challenge in 2 weeks' time at Summerslam but he will be looking to test a few of his submissions out on Tye tonight.

    The ref gets ready to ring the bell to start this encounter off when we hear the music for the current IC champion Drew McIntyre makes his way down to ringside as he takes a seat on commentary. The whole way down to the ring Zack Sabre Jr does not take his eyes off the Scottish terminator.

    Tom Phillips: Welcome Drew.

    Drew McIntyre: Thanks for having me Tom.

    Byron Saxton: Why you out here?

    Drew McIntyre: To watch my opponent at Summerslam.

    Zack is still staring at Drew as the ref gets ready to ring the bell starting this encounter off.

    Match 1: Zack Sabre Jr vs Tye Dillinger

    Sabre not having his focus on his opponent in the ring allows Tye Dillinger to take advantage laying into him with a number of blows wearing down the former champion. Drew during the encounter is very focused and does not say too much but when he does, he praises the submission game of Sabre but promises to overpower him en route to victory.

    During the match once Sabre gets in control of the match he starts to twist and pull on the limbs of Tye. Throughout the match he seems more viscous then he had been during his IC title reign. In the end he is able to pick up the win locking in a modified dragon sleeper hold forcing Tye to submit!

    Winner via submission: Zack Sabre Jr (7:07)

    Sabre lets go of the hold tossing Tye down to the mat as he stands tall in the ring looking very smug in victory. Drew McIntyre rises to his feet leaving the commentary desk holding the title in the air. Sabre signals the title is returning to him.

    Mauro Ranallo: Well up next, we have an interview that was pre-recorded before Smackdown came on the air with Finn Balor.

    Byron Saxton: Both men are not here tonight as Shane McMahon on the advice of soon to return general manager Daniel Bryan gave the pair a week off to try to keep the volatile situation between the Club members under control.

    Tom Phillips: Bryan being a former in-ring competitor knows that sometimes a superstar can be their own worst enemy.

    We cut to the interview as we can see Finn sat on a chair as he puts his feet up on the table with his jacket wide open showing off his chest as Renee gets ready to ask him a few questions.

    Renee Young: Finn Balor why can you and AJ Styles not get along?

    Finn takes a moment to think before sighing as he takes his feet off the table before looking to speak.

    Finn Balor: I don't like him. I ain't going to act like I am some saint. I have my demons trust me on that but what he did to me in Japan I can't overlook that. I just want to punch him in the face.

    Renee Young: Even if your brothers would rather you two were friends?

    Finn Balor: One thing me and AJ agree on is we don't want to drag Karl and Luke into this. They are like brothers to us. Once you are in the club you are in it for life. But not all brothers get along. They love us both but we need to settle this in the ring.

    Renee Young: Don't you think it would be healthier for you guys to work together to take down the Wyatt family?

    Finn shakes his head.

    Finn Balor: Look how well that worked out. Where I come from when you have a problem you go outside and settle it. That is what me and AJ Styles have to do for the good of the Club. And I will also prove it is me who should be the one to dethrone Bray Wyatt not him.

    Renee Young: What do you mean by that?

    Finn Balor: Bray mentioned my demons. I have another side of me that sometimes comes out and the more it comes out the harder it is to control. The longer Bray sticks around the more worried I am it might come out. So, the power he claims to have needs to be taken away from him and intend to do it after I beat AJ Styles.

    Renee Young: Do you mean like the demon king we saw in NXT?

    Finn nods.

    Finn Balor: I tapped into the power too much in NXT. Heck I tapped into at Wrestlemania when I should not have as I could beat Jericho and Big E without it. Tapping into that power not only drains me but I lose part of who I am to it.

    Renee Young: Do you think the demon has been playing on your mind and making the issues between you and AJ worse?

    Finn Balor: Maybe it has but maybe it was playing on things that are already there.

    Renee Young: Will the demon be making an appearance at Summerslam?

    Finn Balor: No, me and AJ need to settle this man to man as I prove I am the true rock and rolla.

    Renee Young: Thanks for your time Finn.

    Finn Balor: The pleasure was all yours.

    Finn winks at Renee before walking off as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back, we see Dana Brooke is in her locker room doing some stretches and warming up ahead of her number one contender's match later on in the show when Emma walks into the room.

    Emma: Hey Dana I heard you have a number one contender's match later in the show?

    Dana Brooke: Yeah if I beat Mickie James, I am one match away from becoming the champion.

    Emma: So, I was thinking since it is such a big match you could do with some moral support.

    Dana Brooke: Thanks for the offer but once again Emma I want to prove I can do this on my own.

    Emma: But you never know what could happen and this is such a big opportunity.

    Dana Brooke: Emma the answer is no.

    Emma: OK I understand, good luck anyway Dana.

    Emma leaves Dana in the room to get ready as we cut back to the ring side area as Zack Ryder makes his way to the ring with his partner Curt Hawkins out here to support him.

    Mauro Ranallo: The ultimate broski will be looking to get some revenge after Mojo Rawley's attacks in the last few months.

    Tom Phillips: Mojo did not take kindly to their team being broken up and will be looking to hurt Zack Ryder tonight.

    Mojo Rawley makes his way out and sprints to the ring. However as soon as he slides into the ring Ryder jumps onto him and starts pounding him on the mat! The ref has to pull him off before taking him to the other corner as he tries to get this under control. Mojo rises to his feet and charges at Ryder pushing the ref out of the way! The ref grabs Mojo off of Ryder as he pulls him away telling him to get in the corner. Ryder comes to attack him again but the ref keeps him at arm's length as well. The ref then rings the bell as both men start brawling once again!

    Match 2: Mojo Rawley vs Zack Ryder w/ Curt Hawkins

    Both men don't even bother to go for covers instead wanting to beat the hell out of each other. Both men spill to the outside where the battle carries on there. The ref gets to a ten count but both men are too busy fighting causing the ref to rule this match as a double countout.

    Winner: Double countout (2:11)

    Byron Saxton: Well this match has ended in a double countout.

    Tom Phillips: I don't think either man has noticed as they are still brawling on the outside of the ring.

    Both men are still fighting on the outside as Mojo has gained the upper hand in the brawl when Curt Hawkins clocks him with the cane to the back. Stopping him for a moment. Mojo turns around to attack him before turning back round into a rough ryder! Ryder gets back up he gives a bro fist to his partner thanking him for the assist. We then cut to a video package.

    It shows John Morrison working out in a gym as he can be seen doing numerous pull ups whilst wearing his signature sunglasses. We can see a woman we have never seen before watching him work out (it is Taya Valkyrie). He drops down off the bar as the woman passes him a bottle of water.

    John Morrison: Thanks Taya

    He gives his other half a kiss on the lips as she smiles before he turns to the camera to speak.

    John Morrison: 6 years ago, I choose to take some time away from the WWE. I knew I was not reaching the heights that I should have reached. Since then I have toured America and Mexico proving myself. Now I am coming back to Smackdown Live to prove why I am the mayor of slam town.

    John Morrison returns to Smackdown Live soon!

    We cut to a commercial break as that promo package comes to an end. When we come back from the commercial break, we can see the ring set up ready for the highlight reel even with the Jeri-tron 5000 set up inside the ring.

    Mauro Ranallo: Well the self-proclaimed mayor of slamtown and the king of parkour is making his return to Smackdown Live!

    Byron Saxton: That man is a former IC and tag team champion who will be looking to build on that success in his return to WWE.

    We next hear the music for Chris Jericho hit as he makes his way down to the ring ready for the highlight reel! The crowd let out a massive pop as Jericho plays to the crowd and makes them excited like no one else can!

    Tom Phillips: In two weeks time we will see Chris Jericho take on Roman Reigns as he looks to get payback after the brutal attack the night after Money in the bank.

    Chris Jericho smirks in the ring letting out a cocky smirk once inside holding a microphone in his left hand as he stands in the ring stretching his arms out.

    Chris Jericho: Sorry guys I was just drinking it in maaaaaaaaan!

    Pop from the crowd for one of Jericho's numerous catchphrases as he smiles before he takes a seat on a chair.

    Chris Jericho: Tonight, on the highlight reel I have someone who this Sunday won't be getting the gift of Jericho but will be getting the fist of Jericho! Roman Reigns.

    Boos for the mention of the most hated man in the WWE today.

    Chris Jericho: I know what it is like to have been the cocky superstar on the top of the world but I will prove at Summerslam I am still the same great Chris Jericho baby!

    Cheers from the crowd for the popular line but the mood changes quite quickly. Roman Reigns makes his way out onto the ramp clearly not wanting to wait till Jericho was ready. He wastes no time sliding into the ring wearing a suit and having a massive rolex on his wrist. He takes a seat on a chair picking up a microphone.

    Roman Reigns: Listen I am a busy man Jericho. I have not got time to wait for you to pander to these fans with your 1001 catchphrases when I have more important places.

    Cheap heat from the crowd as Reigns does not even react to the fans booing him.

    Chris Jericho: Well I actually had a list 1004 catchphrases I wanted to say.

    Reigns does not look impressed by the reference rolling his eyes as Chris Jericho takes a seat.

    Chris Jericho: I asked for you to appear on the highlight reel as I want to let you know what you are facing. Do you know what I have done in this business? I was the first ever undisputed WWE champion. I am a multiple time tag team champion, I have won the US title and I have won the IC title 9 times! I even invited the list!

    This gets a massive pop from the crowd as Roman Reigns rolls his eyes as Chris Jericho looks to carry on.

    Chris Jericho: But I look at you and I see a lot of similarities with myself when I first got to the top of the WWE.

    Roman Reigns: Is that so?

    Chris Jericho: I came in and ran my mouth to everyone who listen. However, I fought for everything I won you whereas you have had it all handed to you and you sulk because these fans hate you.

    Roman Reigns: I got everything handed to me because I am greatness. I have this business in my blood whereas you came in as a cruiserweight. I was part of the most dominant force in WWE history the SHIELD, I am a multiple time world champion already and unlike you I have actually won the royal rumble!

    Chris Jericho looks annoyed as Reigns rises out of his seat moving towards Chris Jericho.

    Roman Reigns: And at Summerslam I will put the legacy of Chris Jericho to rest!

    This makes Jericho rises to his feet getting ready to fight Roman Reigns looking angry as hell.

    Chris Jericho: Well how about try to do that right now!

    Jericho goes to attack Reigns who slides out of the ring retreating up the ramp to boos from the crowd as he smiles.

    Roman Reigns: I do things on my terms. This is my yard and I will fight you when I want to!

    Roman drops the microphone on the ramp leaving Jericho stood in the ring looking angry as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back from the commercial break, we hear the music for Dana Brooke which gets a small pop from the crowd as she has potentially the biggest match of her career ahead of her.

    Tom Phillips: Well up next, we will see Dana Brooke take on Mickie James for the chance to face Sarah Logan.

    Byron Saxton: I am not sure if I would even want to win this match as facing the queen of horror sounds more like a punishment after what she did to Paige last week.

    Mickie James makes her way out next to a much better pop from the crowd. She looks focused as she looks to earn another chance to win the Women's title for a 7th time. She slaps hands with the fans before sliding into the ring ready for this encounter. Both women get ready to lock up as the ref rings the bell starting this match off.

    Match 3: Number one contender's match: Dana Brooke vs Mickie James

    Mickie starts the match off by offering Dana Brooke a handshake. Dana Brooke agrees. Both women from there wrestle each other in a respectable fashion. As the match goes on it is clear that Mickie James is starting to take control and looks like winning on a couple of occasions. In the closing stages of the match we see Emma walk down to ringside when Mickie has Dana Brooke down on the mat.

    This distracts the ref allowing Nia Jax to sneak in through the crowd. She slides into the ring hitting Mickie James with a monstrous clothesline dropping Mickie James! Nia Jax meanwhile gets out of the ring and hides at ringside. Meanwhile Dana Brooke rises to her feet seeing the downed Mickie James. Emma stops distracting the ref as Dana picks up Mickie James hitting her with a Samoan driver for the win not looking happy!

    Winner via pinfall: Dana Brooke (8:00)

    Mauro Ranallo: Dana Brooke has picked up the win thanks to a major assist from Nia Jax tonight!

    Tom Phillips: Well you have to think Emma played a major role in this as well.

    Dana Brooke does not stay in the ring to celebrate as she shakes her head as she walks backstage ignoring her friend Emma at ringside. Meanwhile Mickie James is rising to her feet looking annoyed when Nia Jax takes down Mickie from behind laying into her! She picks her up lifting the legend off the mat before dropping her with a Samoan drop to boos from the crowd as she stands tall over Mickie James.

    Byron Saxton: Pure domination by Nia Jax here clearly not taking kindly to Mickie James's words to her or losing at the Great American Bash.

    Mauro Ranallo: Well up next, we will be hearing what AJ Styles had to say earlier in the night regarding his Summerslam match with Finn Balor. Don't go anywhere.

    When we come back from the commercial break, we are shown AJ Styles sat on a chair looking a bit annoyed and heated whilst sat across the room from him is Renee Young ready to interview him.

    Renee Young: Thanks for your time AJ.

    AJ Styles: Any time Renee.

    Renee Young: My first question, how did it feel to fall short against the Wyatt family once again?

    AJ Styles: Angry. I know that if me and Finn could have co-existed, with the might of the good brothers we would have beaten the Wyatt Family. The most frustrating part is the longer I struggle to defeat the sheep that follow the Bray, the further I am away from my WWE title and being the face that runs the place!

    Renee Young: What do you make of Finn calling you selfish and saying you only care about the WWE title?

    Styles shakes his head looking annoyed by that question before responding.

    AJ Styles: I want my WWE title back I ain't going to deny that but selfish? I care about this show. This is my brand that I have helped build and make the number one show. And now I see a poisonous force taking over the brand. You think I am just going to let Bray take over?

    Renee Young: Speaking to Finn he seems to hold a lot of resentment due to what happened in Japan as you got his brothers to turn on him.

    AJ Styles: There is only so many times I can say sorry Renee before I realize he ain't listening. I have said my piece but now we need to settle this man to man. Maybe after the match is done, I will say sorry again but Finn needs to have some common sense beaten into him.

    Renee Young: One last question before you go AJ. You have done battle with both John Cena and Bray Wyatt over that WWE title. Who do you expect to win at Summerslam?

    AJ Styles: Bray Wyatt is a powerful man but he also needs a herd of sheep around him to help him stay on top. If there is any man who can overcome those odds not named AJ Styles it is John Cena. And who knows once I am done with Finn maybe me and Cena can have a Wrestlemania rematch!

    Renee Young: Thanks for your time AJ

    AJ Styles: It has been a pleasure Renee.

    We cut to a commercial break after that interview. When we come back from the ad break, we see the good brothers Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows making their way to the ring to a pop from the crowd with a small number of boos.

    Mauro Ranallo: Well we heard from their friend AJ Styles just now but the Good brothers will have to have their focus on this match and not on their friends' problems.

    Tom Phillips: You have to wonder if that will affect these two men and cause them to miss out on the chance to fight for the World tag team titles at Summerslam.

    Both men two sweet each other in the ring as the New Day make their way out next to a massive pop. They stand on the ramp as they are wearing their red new day jackets. Kofi unveils his to show a shirt pointing to Xaiver Woods. Xaiver then unveils his to point towards Big E. Big takes his jacket off to show an arrow to pointing down as the others stands in front of Big E telling him to take it off! Big does that as he makes his waytowards the ring as New Day stands in his corner.

    Mauro Ranallo: Well it looks like New Day are bringing the muscle of the group into this match as Big E will be fighting on their behalf.

    Byron Saxton: My boy Big E is a two-time US champion and also a former IC champion. No way does the Club stand a chance.

    We next hear the music for the World tag team champions as they make their way to the ring. We can see Chad Gable is not dressed to compete instead wearing an American Alpha jacket as Jordan sprints down to the ring and slides in making it clear he will be Big E's partner in this match.

    Mauro Ranallo: American Alpha have held those titles for over 250 days now but could be about to face their greatest challenge especially if Jordan and Big E are unable to overcome the Club tonight!

    Tom Phillips: There has been a healthy rivalry between the New Day and American Alpha over the tag team titles in recent times but they will have to work together if they want to overcome the power of the Club tonight!

    Jason Jordan and Big E discuss who is going to start for the team with Jordan agreeing to start for them whilst Karl Anderson starts for the The Club.

    Match 4: The Club vs Big E and Jason Jordan w/ Chad Gable, Kofi Kingston and Big E

    Jordan and Big E give a good showing as they are capable competitors and have a lot of experience at being part of a team. However, in the end The Club are able to overcome the pair with their superior teamwork and experience hitting Jordan with the Magic Killer for the 3-count making the World tag team titles match at Summerslam a fatal 4-way match!


    Winners via pinfall: The Club (10:18)

    Mauro Ranallo: A massive win for The Club as they now have a chance to become the World tag team champions in two weeks' time.

    However as The Club stand tall in the ring, we see the lights go out! When they come back on, we see Bray Wyatt sending his men down to the ring as they take out the Club. American Alpha and The New Day see them attacking The Club as they try to take down the Wyatts but there is a mix up as Kofi accidentally hits Gable with trouble in paradise! This allows the Wyatt Family to get the upper hand as they lay everyone else out. Harper and Ziggler make their way over to the tag team titles holding them in the air as the Wyatt Family stand tall in the ring as we cut to a commercial break after the wild brawl. When we come back, we see Renee Young walking up to Nia Jax who is backstage in her locker room.

    Renee Young: Nia Jax can I ask why you attacked Mickie James and cost her the match against Dana Brooke?

    Nia Jax turns to Renee Young as she smiles looking very happy with herself.

    Nia Jax: Why? That stupid woman thinks she is some kind of legend. She is not a legend. Do you know who is a legend? My cousin the Rock. That is a legend. Mickie James is too busy believing her own hype. She got lucky against me and she needed to be put in her place. And if we meet in the ring again, I will crush her and show everyone this idea of her being a legend is just a myth.

    We cut back to the ring as we can see Simon Gotch stood in the ring ready for a match.

    Byron Saxton: Strong words from Nia Jax just now but up next we are going to see Simon Gotch in action against Big Cass.

    Big Cass's music hits next as the giant walks down to the ring to boos from crowd. He does not play to the fans or do any of his last antics from his tag team days.

    Mauro Ranallo: Well guys Big Cass is 7 feet tall and you can't teach that.

    Tom Phillips: I feel sorry for Simon Gotch as no one would want to face Big Cass when he is in this kind of mood.

    Match 5: Big Cass vs Simon Gotch

    Simon Gotch does not stand a chance as Big Cass decimates him in under 2 minutes putting him away with a Big Boot for the win.

    Winner via pinfall: Big Cass (1:23)

    Big Cass stands tall in the ring happy with the win when he turns to the downed Simon Gotch.

    Byron Saxton: I think Simon Gotch is in trouble here....

    Big Cass drags him off the mat hitting Simon Gotch with an east river crossing looking to send a message. He smiles before he looks at the poor broken Gotch looking to hit another one when the music for Jack Swagger hits as the all-american charges down to the ring running off Big Cass. Big Cass walks up the ramp mocking Jack Swagger in the ring.

    Tom Phillips: Jack Swagger wants to get some payback against Big Cass for his attack a few weeks ago.

    We cut to a commercial break after Jack Swagger makes the save. When we return, we can see the Wyatt Family are in a dark room with one lightblub on. Bray Wyatt sits out front with the WWE title on his lap rocking back and forth. Sarah Logan is clutching her Amazonian title on the right to Bray whilst Luke Harper stands to the left of Bray Wyatt. Meanwhile Rowan, Harper and Ziggler stand behind him.

    Bray Wyatt: Once again we have shown all the little alliances where the true power resides. My boys may have fallen to American Alpha once but now we are a stronger unit.

    Bray signals for Sarah Logan to come forward with her title as well.

    Bray Wyatt: This gives us even more power and soon we will hold all the power.

    Luke Harper: At Summerslam you would be smart to run but we will leave you for the buzzards.

    Harper lets out a creepy smile looking happy at the thought of destroying the other tag teams when Sarah Logan looks to speak next.

    Sarah Logan: Dana, Dana you should listen to your friend because you will need all the help you can get. And I can always do with more victims to destroy.

    Sarah Logan laughs to herself before making a serious face towards the camera.

    Sarah Logan: Remember what happened to poor Paige?

    She laughs to herself once again as Bray Wyatt stands up out of his rocking chair holding the WWE title up as he leans in close.

    Bray Wyatt: I will be seeing you soon John.

    The lightblub goes out and the promo ends as we cut to the ring to hear the music for Breezedango hits as they make their way to the ring lead by Mr Money in the bank The Miz.

    Mauro Ranallo: A massive opportunity for Tyler Breeze tonight as he faces a WWE legend tonight in John Cena.

    Tom Phillips: A win over John Cena could do wonders for his career and he will be looking to prove himself tonight.

    Breeze is in the ring getting psyched up by Fandango and The Miz when the music for John Cena hits to a mixed reaction from the crowd as he throws his cap and shirt into the crowd before joining Breeze in the ring. The ref instructs The Miz and Fandango to leave the ring before getting this contest underway.

    Main event: John Cena vs Tyler Breeze w/Fandango and The Miz

    Tyler Breeze struggles in the early stages of the match until Fandango and the Miz help him by distracting the ref and tripping up John Cena. This allows Breeze to fight back as he starts to control the match. As it goes on any time Cena starts to gain the upper hand The Miz and Fandango get involved to help Breeze.

    This goes on till the match's finish when Dean Ambrose music hits to a pop from the crowd as he runs down to the ring with a kendo stick chasing after The Miz and Fandango. Both men flee through the crowd as Ambrose gives chase. In the ring Breeze meanwhile looks to go for the unpreitter but Cena counters out of it lifting him up for an AA. He plants Tyler Breeze picking up the win!

    Winner via pinfall: John Cena (9:49)

    Mauro Ranallo: John Cena picks up the win!

    As John Cena celebrates as the lights go out. When they come back on, we see Bray Wyatt sat cross legged at the top of the ramp. He has a microphone whilst still holding the WWE title as John Cena asks someone for a microphone from ringside.

    Bray Wyatt: John you think you will achieve immortality against me at Summerslam?

    John Cena: Nah I already know my name is in the record books.

    Mixed reaction from the crowd as Cena turns to the fans.

    John Cena: Hey it is the truth. I know my name is going down as one of the best of all time but now I want to prove I am the best of all time before I retire.

    Bray Wyatt: The person who craves the love of these people wants to take this title so his name can go into the records one more time.

    John Cena: Listen I respect the WWE universe whether they cheer me or boo me. But you better recognize the fact that I am John Cena and at Summerslam I will do what I always do because the champ is here!

    Cena throws down the microphone as Bray responds by laughing before rising to his feet as he holds the WWE title aloft as we fade to black...

    Re: WWE: A Different Future


    July 31st
    Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

    We get the usual video introduction to Monday Night Raw before we cut to the ring getting ready to start the show. We cut to the commentary desk who get ready to introduce us to the show.

    Michael Cole: Welcome to Monday Night Raw and we are now 6 nights away from the biggest party of the summer, Summerslam!

    Corey Graves: And we have a hell of a show in store tonight!

    Booker T: Yes, guys we will see Bayley in action for the first time since the brutal hell in a cell match against Sasha Banks at Vengeance.

    Corey Graves: Not only that but we will see Samoa Joe defend his US title against Shinsuke Nakamura tonight!

    Michael Cole: But right now, we will see the WWE tag team titles on the line as the Revival will defend them in a triple threat match with The Hardy Boyz and the Dudleys!

    We hear the music for the Dudley Boyz hit first as the legendary tag team walk to the ring knowing how big this matchup is for them.

    Booker T: If I had to put my money on any team to win this it would be the Dudley Boyz. They know they are at the end of their career and when you are that close to the end you will do whatever it takes to win.

    Corey Graves: If this was the Dudleys in their prime they may have a chance but The Revival are the greatest tag team in WWE today. They live and breathe being a tag team.

    The next team to make their way out to the ring are the Hardys as they get a large cheer from the fans as they come down to the ring! The Hardy Boyz and the Dudleys lock eyes, jaw-jacking with each other.

    Michael Cole: Well here is my pick for this match. Jeff is a former World champion and Matt a former US champion. Plus, they have won those tag belts in the ring numerous times. The Revival are good but the Hardys are better in my opinion.

    Corey Graves: Listen I agree with you there. The Hardys are one of the greatest tag teams in WWE history and are still one of the best today. However, they are not the best and that is why the Revival will come out on top!

    The last team to make their way out are the WWE tag team champions the Revival. The Revival clink their titles together as they march down to the ring looking angry and focused.

    Michael Cole: It also has to be remembered guys the Revival could lose their titles without being pinned tonight.

    Corey Graves: And that is what makes this match unfair. The Revival have beaten both of these teams already and now they could lose to one of them without being pinned or submitted.

    Booker T: Sometimes it be like that Corey. As a champion in WWE you have to accept that life is unfair sometimes.

    The Revival stand in the ring as they pass the WWE tag team titles to the ref.

    Michael Cole: Another key thing to note is there will be 3 men in the ring at all times unlike past triple threat tag team matches.

    Dash Wilder stays in the ring for the Revival whilst Matt Hardy jumps in for the Hardy Boyz and Bubba Ray Dudley jumps into the ring for the Dudleys.

    Match 1: WWE tag team titles match: The Revival (c) vs The Hardy Boyz vs The Dudley Boyz

    The match starts off as a very frenetic encounter due to there being 3 men in the ring the whole time. The Dudleys and The Hardys work together early on to wear down the younger Revival. However, this quickly falls apart when Bubba Ray tries to roll Jeff Hardy up for a 3 count! From there all 3 teams go hell for leather trying to win this match.

    Towards the closing stages we can see the Revival getting more and more frustrated with the fact they are unable to put either of their opponents away. The pair even start trying to cheat but, on both occasions, they are either caught by the ref or Matt Hardy stops them from putting their feet on the ropes.

    The match breaks down from as Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder goes after Matt Hardy looking to take him down for stopping them pinning his brother. Whilst this goes on in the ring the legal Bubba Ray Dudley tags in D-Von Dudley as they look to go for the 3D! However, Matt escapes hitting a double dropkick to both members of the Revival. He sends Bubba Ray Dudley to the outside with a clothesline before climbing to the top rope as he hits the swanton bomb! Jeff makes the cover as The Revival nearly break the count but Matt grabs a foot of both members of the Revival to stop them!

    Winners via pinfall and NEW WWE tag team champions: The Hardy Boyz (18:17)

    Michael Cole: The Hardy Boyz have done it! They have won the tag team champions for the 8th time as a team!

    Corey Graves: But you have to feel sorry for the Revival. They were not even in the decision and have lost their titles without being pinned!

    Booker T: Like I said earlier, life is not fair and now they will have to show why they should be tag team champions once again.

    The Revival are sat in the ring looking furious as the Hardy Boyz celebrate playing to the fans playing to the fans. The DudleysBoyz meanwhile sit by the ring apron looking devastated to have come up short in what may be their last chance to become tag team champions.

    After a commercial break we see The Revival walking backstage looking furious as they storm through the back. They are clearly not happy with what just happened.

    Dash Wilder: Drake Maverick!

    Scott Maverick: Where is Drake Maverick?

    They approach a stage hand cornering the poor backstage worker.

    Scott Dawson: Where is he!

    Random guy: I don't know

    Charly Caruso: Guys, can I ask you a few questions?

    The backstage worker uses this as an opportunity to sneak off clearly wanting no part of this situation as the pair turn around to face Charly.

    Scott Dawson: Now is not a good time.

    Charly Caruso: I just wanted to get your thoughts after what just happened tonight?

    Dash Wilder: Our thoughts? We got screwed out of our titles.

    Scott Dawson: We are the top team on Monday night Raw and we demand to get a 1 on 1 match to get our titles back!

    Both men storm off looking for Drake Maverick when we hear a massive CRASH! The camera quickly goes elsewhere as we can see Sami Zayn on the floor when the camera pans up to see the monstrous Braun Strowman stood over Sami Zayn clearly the culprit. He is not done however as he picks up Sami Zayn before he lifts him over his head tossing him into the Raw set destroying it and leaving Zayn in a crumpled mess.

    Braun Strowman: I TOLD YOU I WAS NOT FINISHED WITH YOU YET!

    Sami Zayn is not moving as Braun looks like he is going to do even more damage to him when a bunch of security come over followed by Drake Maverick. They lead Braun away from Sami Zayn.

    Drake Maverick: Can I get a medic over here?

    Sami Zayn is still struggling in the wreckage as Braun lets out a smirk having sent a devastating message to his opponent this Sunday at Summerslam. We cut back to the ring to see the commentary desk a bit hush toned after that brutal assault.

    Michael Cole: An utterly devastating attack by the monster among men.

    Corey Graves: Sami Zayn is learning that you do not want to piss off a monster. The only thing I have to ask is; will Sami Zayn make it to Summerslam after that attack?

    The lights start to dim however as a spotlight appears on the top of the entrance ramp as we see the drifter Elias walk out to the top of the ramp to the “delight” of Corey Graves as the crowd cheer for their home town hero. He walks to the ring before taking a seat on the stool set up in the ring getting a quite a few “Elias” chants from the crowd.

    Elias: I have drifted back to my home.

    The crowd cheer Elias giving him a very warm welcome as he smiles to himself.

    Elias: I have wandered around the world, drifting from place to place. And there is one thing I have learned in my time.

    The crowd cheer as they want to hear what Elias is going to say next.

    Elias: It reminded me why I started drifting from town to town. It was to see if I could find a place that was not as god awful as this stupid state.

    And now those cheers turn to boos as Elias lets out a smile.

    Elias: I mean has any musician made it in this hell hole? I could not wait to leave this state and now I am back in this city against my better judgement.

    Cheap heat

    Elias: Shut your damn mouths!

    Unsurprisingly the crowd chooses to ignore this suggestion.

    Elias: That is fine because I refuse to play in a town like this. However, I have an important announcement to make! Because I will be going to New York City and on the Summerslam pre-show I will win the US title battle royal!

    Elias becomes the first person to throw his name into the hat for the battle royal.

    Elias: It does not matter who wins tonight whether it be Samoa Joe or the wannabe rock-star Shinsuke Nakamura. Once I win that battle royal, that US title will be mine.

    The crowd boo Elias until we hear the music for Apollo Crews hit to a small pop from the crowd happy to see someone come out to shut Elias up. He has a goofy smile on his face as he plays to the crowd before walking to the ring with a microphone in his hand.

    Apollo Crews: Listen Elias I know I am about to face you in a few minutes but I could not stay in the back listening to you rag on these fans for much longer.

    Cheap pop from the crowd as Elias gets rid of the stool from the ring.

    Apollo Crews: Also, this Sunday like tonight it won't be you winning, it will be me!

    Apollo Crews gets rid of the microphone joining Elias inside the ring. A ref in the meantime has made his way to the ring as he signals for the timekeeper to ring the bell getting this match started.

    Match 2: Elias vs Apollo Crews

    Elias and Apollo Crews put on a decent showing ahead of the US title number one contender's battle royal this Sunday. As the match goes on Crews is able to get the crowd behind him showing off his impressive moveset. However, in the end as Elias looks in trouble, Elias rakes Crews's eyes stopping him going for a powerbomb. This causes Crews to drop Elias who hits him with the drift away for the win!

    Winner via pinfall: Elias (7:10)

    Michael Cole: Elias picks up his second win on Monday night Raw and you have to wonder could we be looking at the next number one contender for the US title at Payback?

    Corey Graves: Like I have said before I hate his music but when it comes to his work in the ring, I can't fault him. He will do whatever it takes to win.

    Booker T: Hey don't rule out my boy Apollo Crews. That kid has got something and it may help him win this Sunday!

    We see Elias celebrating on the ramp as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back we can see Neville sat in what seems to be a medical room as he has a bunch of tape around his back and ribs after the attack by Tommaso Ciampa last week. He has an angry snarl on his face as he looks towards the camera.

    Neville: I have been told by the doctors that I will not be 100% this Sunday. But I refuse to run away from my throne. Ciampa you can try all of your cheap tricks but this Sunday you will have to take this title from my cold dead hands!

    We cut to the ring as we see Ariya Davari stood in the ring. Tommaso Ciampa makes his way out next ready for this match as he has a sick smile on his face.

    Michael Cole: Well Neville is not here tonight after the attack by Ciampa last week but he will be at Summerslam defending his title against the man on his way to the ring.

    Corey Graves: Neville has always been a stubborn competitor who will fight through the pain to keep a title but you have to wonder how smart that is when he will be stepping into the ring with a psychopath like Ciampa.

    Match 3: Tommaso Ciampa vs Ariya Davari

    Ariya Davari tries his best to keep up with Tommaso Cimapa but is put away in fairly quick fashion.

    Winner via submission: Tommaso Ciampa (3:06)

    Michael Cole: An impressive performance by Tommaso Ciampa tonight.

    Booker T: I may not be a fan of his attitude but he is one of the best superstars on the roster today.

    Tommaso Ciampa makes his way out of the ring as he grabs a microphone from one of the timekeepers before taking a seat on the ring apron as he looks to speak.

    Tommaso Ciampa: In 6 day's time I take the title from the king of the Cruiserweights. What I did to him last week was just a taste of what is in store for him at Summerslam!

    The crowd boo as Ciampa smiles enjoying the heat he is getting from the crowd.

    Tommaso Ciampa: And I will prove I am the best sports-entertainmenter in the world!

    Ciampa throws the microphone smiling and taunting the crowd as he heads up the ramp to the back.

    Michael Cole: Strong words from Tommaso Ciampa there but after the commercial break we will see the contract signing for the Kevin Owens vs Seth Rollins match at Summerslam. Don't go anywhere.

    When come from the commercial break we can see the table set up in the ring ready for the contract signing as Stephanie McMahon and Drake Maverick are stood in the ring. Both have a microphone in hand as they look to speak.

    Drake Maverick: Right now, we will have both of our choices sign these contracts ahead of the match at Summerslam. So first my choice Seth Rollins!

    Seth Rollins's music hits to a massive pop from the crowd. He waits at the top of the ramp as we hear burn it down before the music changes as Becky Lynch makes her way out to a pop from the crowd. However as soon as she is in the ring Becky tries to attack Stephanie McMahon. Stephanie McMahon flees to the outside of the ring as Seth Rollins has to hold Becky back as Drake Maverick goes to speak.

    Drake Maverick: Becky, Becky save it for Summerslam! Listen we need to get this contract signed.

    Seth Rollins: Listen Becky we need her arm in one piece to make sure she is able to sign the contract.

    Becky off mic holds her hands up clearly not happy saying fine multiple times clearly not fine with it. Stephanie McMahon slowly makes her way back into the ring clearly slightly scared before she looks to speak.

    Stephanie McMahon: And now time for my choice. The man who is going to destroy Seth Rollins and bring my husband back to Monday Night Raw Kevin Owens!

    Kevin Owens walks out with a suit on as he makes his way to the ring joining everyone in it. He smirks before taking a seat on a chair next to Stephanie McMahon. Weirdly we can see Stephanie McMahon is wearing a pair of black gloves. Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch take a seat across the ring from her as Drake stands at the end of the table seemingly overseeing this contract signing. He picks up the contract before he looks to speak.

    Drake Maverick: Let me start this off by saying after Sunday you and me Stephanie, well one of us will be gone from this show. I would say it was a pleasure working with you but I don't want to lie to these people.

    Pop from the crowd as he looks to continue.

    Drake Maverick: You keep on interfering in my show. I get it you want your husband back because you two are so power obsessed. You talk about pleasing these fans but you don't care about them, do you?

    Stephanie McMahon: We do what is best for business.

    Seth has heard enough as she picks up one of the microphones on the table and looks to speak.

    Seth Rollins: Oh, come off it Stephanie. I used to work under you. You don't care about what is best for business. You care about what is best for the authority.

    Massive pop from the crowd as Stephanie McMahon does not respond.

    Seth Rollins: When I was one of your little stooges you used to talk about how little these fans mattered. You only care about stroking your own egos.

    Drake meanwhile puts down his microphone for a moment as he picks up a pen on the table before signing his name on the contract. He puts down the pen before picking up the microphone once again.

    Drake Maverick: Seth is right and this is why I cannot wait to get rid of you. What is best for the fans is what is best for business.

    Pop from the crowd as he looks to carry on.

    Drake Maverick: Once Seth Rollins beats Kevin Owens...

    Kevin Owens: That is not going to happen!

    Owens gets up towering over the Raw general manager. Drake looks a little worried as Seth Rollins gets up out of his chair.

    Kevin Owens: Relaxed Seth, I am smart enough to know that Drake has the power to fine me if I attack him. And I have a family to feed. I just want that contract!

    He snatches it out of the hands of Drake Maverick before making his way back to his seat at the table. He looks like he is about to sign it but stops as he picks the microphone up once again.

    Kevin Owens: Actually, I have a few things to say. Seth you can talk about how Stephanie McMahon and HHH are leeches but without HHH I would have never made it here.

    Owens takes a moment to compose himself before speaking.

    Kevin Owens: No not because people did not think I had the talent but the other members of the board were scared of what I would do. Because I will do anything for family. Anything!

    He looks at Seth Rollins staring him dead in the eye before he grabs the pen on the table signing the contract. He passes the contract over to Seth Rollins who signs it as well. He passes it over to the last person who needs to sign the contract, the commissioner for Monday night Raw Stephanie McMahon.

    Stephanie McMahon: See this is why the authority are glad you turned your back on us for these fools in the crowd.

    Cheap heat but Stephanie enjoys mocking the crowd.

    Stephanie McMahon: This man will do whatever it takes. If he needs to stab his best friend in the back, he will do it. If he needs to take out a former World champion like Sheamus to send a message he will do it.

    Seth Rollins smirks to himself before lifting the microphone back up to speak.

    Seth Rollins: And he would double cross the authority in a heartbeat if it suited him.

    Stephanie McMahon: Kevin Owens is smart enough to know where his bread is buttered. He knows what is best for business is best for him. Hell, if I wanted to get Kevin Owens to take care of Becky Lynch he would if I paid him enough money.

    Becky at this point grabs a microphone standing to her feet looking furious as she looks ready to climb over the table.

    Becky Lynch: That dope can try but how about you fight me right now!

    Stephanie McMahon does not react well until she clocks Becky in the face! Becky drops to the mat with a thud as Rollins looks on in shock clearly confused that Stephanie McMahon was able to knock out Becky Lynch. However, it soon becomes clear when Stephanie McMahon removes her gloves and she has brass knuckles on her right hand!

    Corey Graves: Stephanie McMahon is a genius!

    She smiles when Kevin Owens jumps over the table attacking Seth Rollins. He lays into him with a number of punches taking him by surprise. Drake Maverick tries to pull him off but Owens elbows him off before tossing Drake from the ring. He makes his way back over to Seth Rollins but he gets taken down with a bunch of punches from Seth Rollins.

    Whilst this is going on Stephanie McMahon has slid out of the ring where she is looking for something. She pulls it out getting boos from the crowd revealing a SLEDGEHAMMER! She lets out a sick smile as she slides into the ring with Becky just coming too. Seth who is attacking Owens sees this and tries to warn Becky when he gets hit with a low blow by Kevin Owens! Stephanie meanwhile sizes up Becky Lynch before taking her head off with the sledgehammer!

    Becky drops like a sack of spuds as Stephanie tosses the sledgehammer from the ring before she makes her way to the table and signs the contract. Meanwhile Owens starts to drag Seth Rollins over towards the table. He takes a moment as he looks to lift Rollins into the air. Meanwhile Drake tries to get into the ring to stop Owens but Stephanie grabs hold of Drake Maverick stopping him. Owens brings Seth down to earth putting him through the table. Stephanie McMahon lets go of Drake Maverick who runs over to check on Becky who has not moved since the sledgehammer shot!

    Michael Cole: Guys I think we need medics out here to check on Becky.

    Booker T: Stephanie has learned from her husband.

    Corey Graves: This is why you don't cross the boss.

    We see Seth Rollins still down and out in the wreckage though he is starting to move as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back, we can see footage off what happened whilst Raw was off the air as it shows Becky Lynch being taken to the back helped by a bunch of medical personnel and Seth Rollins who is a bit worse for wear himself.

    Michael Cole: As you can see Becky Lynch had to be helped to the back after the brutal sledgehammer shot. She is going to be checked over by our medical team tonight but you have to wonder if she will even be at Summerslam?

    Booker T: And you have to wonder what state Seth Rollins will be in dawg after being powerbombed through a table by Kevin Owens?

    Whilst the commentary team continue to speculate on the health of Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch, we hear the music for the Iiconics hit as the two start to make their way out to the ring to a small number of boos as both women have a microphone in their hands.

    Peyton Royce: Hey Billie, isn't it time we made this show Iconic?

    Billie Kay: Yes, it is. I mean Pennsylvania has never seen something Iconic before?

    Cheap heat from the crowd as the pair make their way through the ropes.

    Peyton Royce: That is fine because everywhere we go, we make that place Iiconic!

    Billie Kay: And now we will make this whole women's division iiconic. Well we can't make Ember Moon iconic!

    Peyton Royce: Like what is with that awful hood she wears?

    Billie Kay: And her eyes? What kind of weirdo has red eyes?

    Before these two can carry on talking about Ember Moon, her music hits to a pop from the crowd as the pair in the ring look a little worried now.

    Michael Cole: Well Ember Moon won't be happy with what these two have to say.

    Corey Graves: Ember Moon is good but she is not iconic like these two. They are pioneers in the women division.

    Booker T: Tell me you did not just say that!

    Ember Moon slides into the ring as Peyton Royce quickly slides out as the match gets underway.

    Match 4: Ember Moon vs Billie Kay w/Peyton Royce

    Ember Moon is fired up right from the start of the match as she lays into Billie Kay at the start of the match. As this match goes on, she is showing a lot of aggression pounding on Billie Kay! Ember Moon is able to control the match and dominate Billie Kay throughout. In the end it takes Peyton Royce on the outside getting involved allowing Billie Kay to roll up Ember Moon. Billie Kay grabs hold of tights and steals the win!

    Winner via pinfall: Billie Kay (6:56)

    Michael Cole: Billie Kay steals the victory here!

    Booker T: Hey it ain't cheating if you don't get caught.

    Ember Moon kicks out at 3.1 and does not look happy as she jumps onto Billie Kay laying into her with a number of punches to the head as she looks to get some payback on Billie Kay. However, before she can do much damage, Peyton Royce slides into the ring grabbing Ember Moon laying into her. The numbers game is becoming too much for Ember Moon when we hear the music for the Queen of Harts as Natayla runs out to the ring!

    Corey Graves: Why is Natayla getting involved?

    Natayla lays into Peyton Royce stopping her in her tracks. Ember Moon also starts to fight back taking control as the iiconics slide out of the ring wanting no part of the two women in their ring. Both women retreat up the ramp as Natayla and Ember Moon stands tall in the ring daring the two to get back in the ring to take them on now they no longer have the numbers advantage.

    We have a commercial break but when we come back, we hear the music for Charlotte hit to a pop from the crowd as the queen of the women's division starts to make her way to the ring.

    Booker T: It is time to hear from the queen of the women's division.

    Corey Graves: But will the queen bow before the boss at Summerslam in 6 day's time?

    Charlotte stands in the ring in her robe as she gets ready to speak but before she can say a word, we hear the music for Sasha Banks hit as the boss walks down to the ring!

    Corey Graves: It is BOSS time!

    Michael Cole: Well Sasha Banks is not waiting in the back to hear what Charlotte has to say.

    Sasha Banks gets in the ring as she gets face to face with Charlotte Flair who has a smug smile on her face not backing down from Sasha Banks.

    Sasha Banks: See I am the most important women in this business and I am not waiting in the back listening you talk about how you are beating me Sunday. Because you are not on my level. No one is.

    Charlotte: Is that so?

    Sasha Banks: Yeah not you, not your dad, no legend from the past is on my level!

    Boos from the crowd for the arrogance from the Boss Sasha Banks.

    Charlotte: You think you would have had the reign of terror you had without me getting injured? I am the daughter of the greatest male superstar this company has even see. WOO!

    The crowd join in with a few WOOs of their own before Charlotte carries on.

    Charlotte: I carried this division for so long that my back gave out! But I made a mistake. I relied on other people when I should have been relying on myself this whole damn time. I am a goddamn Flair and a boss is nothing to a queen!

    The crowd cheer Charlotte as Banks looks annoyed but she composes herself before responding to Charlotte.

    Sasha Banks: You keep talking about your dad but your genetics will not save you at Summerslam. I had to scratch and claw my way here. I did not get handed a place in WWE thanks to my daddy!

    Shots fired as Banks looks fired up whilst Charlotte looks like she is about to snap after Banks said that line.

    Sasha Banks: Did I strike a nerve? I proved last year you are not on my level. People keep talking about the four horsewomen but you, Becky and Bayley will never be on my level. And after Summerslam? The Boss takes back her women's title.

    Boos from the crowd as Sasha Banks looks like she is about to leave the ring.

    Charlotte: Is that why you lost to Bayley at Vengeance?

    That stops Sasha Banks in her tracks as she turns around giving Charlotte a death glare. Charlotte meanwhile mimics sipping tea which seems to piss Sasha Banks off even more.

    Charlotte: Aww did I strike a nerve? You are all talk Sasha. I remember when we used to work together in the BFF's. You were timid little girl but now you have been overtaken by your ego. You cannot handle the fact that you lost to the better women at Vengeance and at Summerslam you will lose to the queen WOO!

    Charlotte holds her arms out with a smug smile. Sasha meanwhile lifts the microphone up to her mouth as she goes to speak. However instead she clocks Charlotte with the microphone dropping Charlotte to boos from the crowd.

    Michael Cole: Looks like Charlotte really did strike a nerve!

    Sasha lays into Charlotte after the cheap shot hitting her with a number of punches. Sasha gets up as she backs away from Charlotte letting her rise to her feet before connecting with a backstabber, standing tall in the ring as we cut to a commercial break.

    When we come back from the commercial break, we hear the music for the BFF's hit to boos from the crowd as they make their way to the ring. Tamina is at the front as she will be competing next whilst the Women's champion Summer Rae and Carmella follow behind her.

    Corey Graves: Tamina is an overpowering force in the women's division and will be a tough challenge for Bayley to overcome tonight.

    Booker T: Bayley has made a career out of proving people wrong and overcoming the odds. I can see her doing the same tonight guys.

    Bayley music hits next as she plays to the crowd getting a massive pop from the fans as she slaps hands with the kids at ringside.

    Michael Cole: Bayley is a two-time Women's champion for a reason but we will have to see whether the numbers game will be too much for Bayley tonight.

    Match 5: Bayley vs Tamina w/ the BFF's

    Bayley starts off the match like a house of fire but soon the power of Tamina allows her to take control. It is noticeable throughout the encounter that Bayley is favouring her left arm. Summer Rae at ringside can be heard shouting instructions to Tamina to focus her attacks on the arm of Bayley.

    Tamina starts to do this trying to attack the weakened limb of Bayley but it is not a strategy she is used to employing and, in the end, Bayley is able to fight back. Carmella tries to interfere at ringside but Bayley takes care of her. Summer Rae tries to sneak into the ring but Bayley dodges taking care of her sending her over the top rope to the floor. Tamina tries to catch Bayley from behind with a superkick but she dodges before hitting a bayley to belly for the win!

    Winner via pinfall: Bayley (8:58)

    Bayley looks to celebrate but as soon as she gets to her feet looking to celebrate, she gets jumped from behind by Summer Rae and Carmella as they start laying into Bayley with a number of boots and fists.

    Michael Cole: A cheap attack post-match by the BFF's unhappy that Bayley was able to overcome the numbers and pick up the win tonight!

    Corey Graves: When you fight one of the BFF's you fight all off them. You would know this if you had any friends Michael.

    All 3 women lay into Bayley as Summer Rae grabs Bayley by the chin holding her up as she stares at the huggster whilst holding the Women's title with her other hand. Summer shouts that “this title is mine” however Bayley breaks free as she slaps Summer Rae in the face to a massive pop!

    Summer Rae recoils for a moment clutching her face as the other two once again grab hold of Bayley beating her down and stomping her into the ground. Bayley is down but Summer is not done there as she wants to send a message to her challenger in 6 day's time. She lives Bayley up before she connects with the Summer crush laying out Bayley. The BFF's stand tall over Bayley looking happy with their work tonight as we cut to the backstage area.

    We see Cody Rhodes is sat with his wife Brandi Rhodes. Cody is a in a very nice suit whilst his wife Brandi is in a very fancy dress. She has a smile whilst Cody looks very serious.

    Brandi Rhodes: My husband has been allowed to stagnate for too long. Even 1 week of him not being a big deal on this show is a mistake. He is future of the Rhodes family legacy. He is the future of this company and after Summerslam he will take the US title.

    Cody Rhodes: My dad was always known as the American Dream. Well now it is time for prepare for the American Nightmare.

    Cody smiles before he turns to his wife as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back, we hear the violins and the music for Shinsuke Nakamura hit to a pop from the crowd as the king of strong style makes his way to the ring.

    Michael Cole: Well there is not many people I would bet on to have a chance of taking the title from Samoa Joe but Shinsuke Nakamura is one of the few.

    Booker T: Samoa Joe was one of the hardest foes I have ever fought.

    Corey Graves: These two men went to war over the NXT title and were evenly matched in NXT so I cannot wait to see these two men go to war once again.

    Shinsuke poses in the ring for the fans but the posing stops once the music for the US champion Samoa Joe hits as he marches down to the ring.

    Michael Cole: He has held the title for 57 days but he has not looked like he is going to lose that title ever since he goes his hands on it against Big E at Money in the Bank.

    Corey Graves: Like his World title reign he has been a constant force that virtually no one has been able to overcome since coming to the main roster.

    Both men stare each other down as the ref raises the title in the air. The title is passed to the timekeeper and the bell is rang getting this match underway!

    Match 6: US title match: Samoa Joe (c) vs Shinsuke Nakamura

    Both men stare each other down for a good 30 seconds once the bell rings as the tension could be cut with a knife. Both men start laying into each other with a bunch of hard strikes at the start of the match! It is an even back and forth encounter for the first 10 minutes as they go blow for blow with each other and are able to counter each other's offence due to their familiarity with each other from their time in NXT.

    As the match goes on though Samoa Joe is starting to slowly wear down Shinsuke as he starts trying to get the coquina clutch locked in on the king of strong style as he tries to choke him out. Shinsuke though is smart enough to get out of the hold twice before locking in his own triangle choke on Samoa Joe as he looks to force Joe to tap out!

    Samoa Joe is able to just about escape from it as he powerbombs Shinsuke onto the mat escaping from the hold. The hold takes its toll so much that he doesn't transition into a boston crab or a STF like would normally after using the powerbomb! Samoa Joe gets up to his feet as he lifts Shinsuke into the air looking for the muscle buster but Shinsuke counters out of it locking in an armbar!

    Samoa Joe lets out a cry of pain due to being locked in the deadly hold as he teases taping out to the move. Joe struggles as he tries to power out but it does not work. Instead he claws his way to the ropes before grabbing hold of it forcing Shinsuke Nakamura to let go of the deadly hold! He keeps it on till the count of 3 before letting go.

    Joe sells his arm as he looks to get up whilst Shinsuke makes his way to the corner of the ring as he sizes up the rising Joe. He signals to the crowd he is about to go for the kinshasa! However, Joe moves out of the way causing Shinsuke to hit the ropes as Joe in desperation grabs hold of Shinsuke Nakamura locking in the coquina clutch!

    Samoa Joe makes sure to bring him back to the centre of the ring as he looks to choke the life out of Shinsuke Nakamura. He starts trying to bring him down to the mat but Shinsuke is still trying to fight out of the hold. Shinsuke gets dragged down to the mat by Joe as he is starting to fade. Shinsuke tries one more time to fight out of the hold but in the end,he has to tap out weakly meaning Samoa Joe is still US champion!

    Winner via submission and still US champion: Samoa Joe (20:38)

    Michael Cole: Samoa Joe retains once again!

    Booker T: Shinsuke pushed Samoa Joe to the limit tonight but in the end, Joe was able to cling onto his US title.

    Corey Graves: Close is not good enough though as Joe once again proves why he is so dominate.

    Samoa Joe celebrates at the top of the ramp to boos from the crowd looking super smug on the top of entrance ramp. We cut to commercial break on that note. When we come back, we can see Randy Orton is a room with red lights on as he looks super serious.

    Randy Orton: I am a legend on this show but for some reason it feels like people have forgotten who I am. I pinned Seth Rollins a few weeks ago in the centre of that ring but I stuck on the pre-show when I should be getting a World title shot. However, there is one title I have never won. The US title. And this Sunday I will show all of the entrants in the battle royal what the 3 most dangerous letters in the professional wrestling are.

    The camera cuts away from that segment as we can see the BFF's walking through the backstage area. They look very happy as they are gloating about what they did to Bayley earlier on in the night. As they are laughing to themselves, we see Drake Maverick walk into shot.

    Summer Rae: Hello Drake shouldn't you be checking on poor Becky Lynch?

    Carmella lets out a laugh whilst Tamina just stays there looking imposing and not saying a word. Drake however does not find the joke even slightly funny.

    Drake Maverick: That is not funny.

    Carmella: Well you should have picked one of us to be at ringside with Seth because Becky is not F A B U L O U S.

    Drave Maverick: Maybe she is not but since Summerslam may be my last night in charge I want to make sure Bayley gets a fair shot at winning back the Women's title. So, you and Tamina are banned from ringside!

    Carmella and Tamina both look furious at that announcement as Drake goes to walk away when Summer Rae grabs hold of him spinning him around.

    Summer Rae: I can't wait till Stephanie McMahon gets rid of you this Sunday.

    The BFF's walk off elsewhere clearly unhappy with that decision as we cut to a commercial break. When we come back from the commercial break, we can see Jinder Mahal stood in the ring talking to his two little man servants.

    Michael Cole: Well up next, we will see the high-flying Mustafa Ali taking on Jinder Mahal. And it has to be noted that not only are Mustafa Ali and Jinder Mahal in the battle royal this Sunday but Jinder Mahal's man servants Samir Singh and Sunil Singh are in the match as well.

    Booker T: I have to say watching Samoa Joe destroy them would be quite fun.

    Corey Graves: Both men know their place Booker T. The modern-day maharajah has to be the favourite due to the advantage having the singh brothers in that match to help him.

    Mustafa Ali makes his way out to the ring next to a pop from the crowd. He sprints down to the ring as it looks like he is going for Jinder but he flies past him taking out the Singh brothers on the outside!

    Michael Cole: Mustafa Ali looking to take care of the Singh brothers knowing how much of a thorn in his side they have been in recent times.

    Corey Graves: That was a totally unprovoked attack on the innocent Singh brothers!

    Mustafa Ali gets back into the ring as the ref rings the bell getting this match underway.

    Match 7: Mustafa Ali vs Jinder Mahal w/The Singh brothers

    The early stages are all Ali as he starts to use his high pace offence to control the match using that to overcome the superior strength that Jinder Mahal has. Ali gets to the top rope looking to pick up the win when Sunil Singh jumps onto the ropes as Samir distracts the ref pushing Ali off.

    From there Jinder gets back into the match as he starts throwing Ali around the ring as he looks to destroy the Cruiserweight. In the end though Ali is still able to overcome Jinder and even take care of the Singh brothers one more time on the outside. Once the singh brothers are taken out Ali would hit Jinder with the 054 for the win.

    Winner via pinfall: Mustafa Ali (12:21)

    Michael Cole: Mustafa Ali picking up an impressive win tonight and putting himself in good stead for the battle royal on the Summerslam pre-show.

    Booker T: This boy here has a lot of potential and maybe he finds it this Sunday.

    We cut to commercial break after that match and when we come back, we see Hunico and Kalisto stood behind Zelina Vega. They both look super serious as Zelina goes to speak.

    Zelina Vega: Now when I took over these boys our focus has been on getting ready to compete for tag team gold. However, I have always been on the lookout for opportunities for my clients. This Sunday both of these men will be entering the battle royal and one of my two clients will earn themselves a chance to become US champion whilst Andrade Cien Almas becomes NXT champion at takeover.

    We cut back to the ring after that segment as we cut to the commentary team who are ready to speak.

    Corey Graves: See this is why Zelina Vega is such a genius. She sees a massive opportunity for her boys to become champions and she takes it.

    Suddenly before Corey Graves can praise Zelina Vega some more we hear the music for Braun Strowman hit to boos from the crowd as he walks to the ring holding the money in the bank briefcase he will be cashing in this Sunday.

    Michael Cole: Well this man destroyed the World champion tonight looking for payback after Sami Zayn got the upper hand on him last week.

    Corey Graves: If Zayn was smart, he would not have provoked the monster among men and now his title might be in even greater jeopardy then it was before!

    Booker T: I hate to say it but I side with Corey on this. Any time I had to fight a monster, I played it smart to make sure the beating did not become any worse because an angry monster is even harder to overcome.

    Braun Strowman stands in the ring looking very angry as he goes to speak.

    Braun Strowman: I told you people I would destroy Sami Zayn. Now he will be lucky to even walk into Summerslam.

    Boos from the crowd.

    Braun Strowman: And if Sami Zayn does not make it to Summerslam I demand I win the title via forfeit.

    Braun pauses looking up into the crowd.

    Braun Strowman: See after Summerslam you won't see me carrying this...

    He lifts it into the air before tossing it to the ring floor with a massive thud breaking the metal briefcase!

    Braun Strowman: I will become World champion and Sami Zayn will not be able to stop me!

    Braun slams the microphone down to the mat roaring to the crowd when Sami Zayn's music hits to a massive pop from the crowd as he stands on the ramp clearly not at 100%, looking furious. He holds the World title in the air before he sprints down the ramp!

    Booker T: Sami Zayn is not waiting till Summerslam!

    Sami Zayn hops onto the apron before he springboards off it jumping on Braun Strowman hitting him with a number of punches. Meanwhile as this happens Drake Maverick makes his way out with a number of security as he sends them down to the ring to stop this brawl! Braun has thrown Sami Zayn off him towards the corner but before he can get at him the security team stop him. Sami Zayn is about to carry on his attack when security stop him as well.

    Corey Graves: Drake Maverick looking to save his Summerslam main event!

    Both men are desperate to get their hands on each other as the security are struggling to keep them apart as the show's closing logo comes on the screen.

    Michael Cole:This Sunday, Summerslam on the WWE network for $9.99 we will see these two go head to head for the World title and much more. Do not miss it!
