Re: WWE 2013 - Massive Change for the New Era
2013 Royal Rumble
27th January 2013;Phoenix, Arizona
The show starts with the usual pyrotechnics to introduce everyone to one of the Grand slam PPV's in the WWE, the Royal Rumble!! We are then welcomed to the show by the voices of Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler and JBL. Michael Cole goes on to inform us of the great night ahead and the action packed show that is in stall for the millions watching, Jerry Lawler throws in the name of The Rock which gets the three commentators talking. JBL says that The Rock has no chance tonight against CM Punk, he says that CM Punk is the Best in the World and that The Rock has wrestled 2 matches since he returned. Jerry Lawler says that Rock is the people's champion and he know's what it takes to be the champion of the WWE. Before they could go any further though they are interrupted...
'NO CHANCE IN HELL'
Out comes the WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon! Vince does his usual walk to the ring with the arms and legs going in all directions as many of the crowd bow down to him. Vince climbs into the ring and gets himself a microphone ready to speak to the WWE Universe, but waits to say anything as the crowd chair and chant his name. Vince finally starts to talk with a real happy tone of voice as if he has a big plan in stall for the WWE Universe. Vince starts of by saying that tonight is one of the biggest nights in the WWE because tonight the winner of the Rumble will open doors to greatness and main event Wrestlemania 29! He also mentions that tonight The Rock will finally gain what is rightfully his and take the WWE Championship from the snake that is CM Punk and reminds everyone of The Shield get involved CM Punk would be stripped of the WWE Championship. Vince then tells the WWE Universe that tonight he is not here to talk about the Rumble, Punk nor Rock, he tells them that there are more important things that he needs to address. He goes on to say that wrestling has been a part of him his entire life and that he was glad to do what he has done with a company like the WWE and work with the people that he has, he goes on to name a few like Eddie Guerrero, The Rock, John Cena, Owen Hart and Jerry Lawler! He then goes on to say that his time as the boss of the WWE is now coming to an end and it wont be too long before someone else takes the reigns of the WWE, he says that he has been preparing for this for a very long time and thinking of whom will take over from him and has narrowed it down to 3 people who will be revealed the following night on Monday Night RAW. He says that is final night in the WWE will be that of Wrestlemania 29 and he will bow out on the grandest stage of them all! He tells the fans to enjoy the rest of the show and to expect the unexpected!
We return to the announce table which has 3 announcers in complete shock at what they have just heard and in disbelief that it was real. Michael Cole goes on to say that the 3 people who could take over the WWE could be anyone and many people could lose their jobs! Jerry reminds us that the first match is about to get started for the World Heavyweight Championship!
World Heavyweight Championship;Last Man Standing;Alberto Del Rio (w/ Ricardo) v Big Show
This match as you can imagine was totally dominated by Big Show from the start with Del Rio getting some run ins of his own but straight away being shot down by Show. At the mid point Show turned his attention away from Del Rio and went for Ricardo Rodriguez but Ricardo managed to escape to the back and left ADR helpless. Show then went back to the ring and started to pound ADR with a chair telling him to stay down, ADR though eventually turned the tables and took the legs from beneath show with the chair and in the process started to attack the now injured knee of Show. ADR rolled out of the ring to get another weapon to attack Show with but Show followed and attempted to charge ADR down only to be drop kicked to the leg, in which he collapsed to the ground and rolled in agony. At this point ADR began to signal to the back calling for someone to come out and from behind the curtain out came Ricardo on a forklift, making his way down the ramp to the cheers from the crowd when he reached the Big Show the rest was obvious, he brought the forks of the car down on top of show and prevented him from returning to his feet and with ADR already on his feet the referee counted to 10 and called an end to the match!
Winner and STILL World Heavyweight Champion - Alberto Del Rio!!!
We go backstage to Matt Striker who welcomes his guests at that time CM Punk and Paul Heyman! Punk grabs the microphone from the hands of Striker and says that he does not need some nobody to interview him and that he is the best interviewer in the company anyway. Punk goes on to say that tonight will be the greatest in his so far great career when he defeats The Rock and walks out of Arizona the WWE Champion and not only has that got great written all over it but that he has just found out the jerk that is Vince McMahon is hanging up the boots and letting some ignoramus take the job and says that he should get it because he would be the best at being boss just like everything else. This receives heat from the crowd and he goes on to say that the people don't matter and after tonight he will finally be seen as THE BEST IN THE WORLD
WWE Tag Team Championships;Team Hell No v Team Rhode Scholars
This was a well worked match with Rhodes and Sandow working well as a team but in the end Team Hell No showed that they are the best dysfunctional team ever in the WWE and got the win after Bryan drop kicked an illegal Sandow from the ring as Rhodes turned into a Chock Slam to then be locked in the Yes Lock and tap out!
Winners and STILL WWE Tag Team Champions Team Hell No!
We go backstage again to Matt Striker only this time he is accompanied by Ziggler, AJ Lee and Big E Langston. Matt asks Ziggler has he decided which number he has chosen from 1 and 2 to enter the rumble tonight as the answer needs to be given now. Ziggler says that he has decided and he has decided to enter at number 1, he says that number one has had 2 winners in the past and that after tonight it will be 3, he says that what he does tonight in the rumble will be him showing off as usual because tonight he will win the rumble go on to main event WM29 and win the WWE Championship and on the same night cash in his MITB briefcase and become World Heavyweight Champion as well. Ziggler walks off to get ready to make his way to the ring.

The final four left in the match were Dolph Ziggler who had lasted from number one, Sheamus who had entered at number 15, John Cena who had entered at number 24 and the surprise entrant in Brock Lesnar who came out in number 30. At this moment Ziggler had lasted the majority of the match because of Big E Langston and was in a bad state because of the length of time he had been in, Sheamus was the same but Cena and Lesnar were the freshest of the 4 as they had just recently entered. Lesnar and Cena stood either side of the ring and stared at each other as Ziggler and Sheamus lay on the mats, they stared for a couple of moments before the both of them charged at each other and started to hit each other with swinging hooks, this was the first time they had came toe to toe since Extreme Rules 2012. As they had each other in the corner with Cena having the advantage Ziggler managed to find his way to his feet and from nowhere to help Lesnar throw Cena over the ropes and eliminate him. Ziggler then asked Lesnar if he wanted to work together to eliminate Sheamus and Lesnar agreed but as Ziggler turned his back Lesnar grabbed him and threw him over the top rope to eliminate him. The last two now stood face to face in the ring Brock Lesnar and last year’s winner Sheamus. The two of them went head to head for a good 15 minutes trying to overdo one another and putting on a power master class in the process but it came to an end when Lesnar failed to connect with the F5 and Sheamus went to connect with the Brogue Kick which missed wildly and saw Sheamus one leg over the ropes, Lesnar took advantage and connected with an elbow to the head of Sheamus to knock him over the rope and secure the win.
Winner of the 2013 Royal Rumble Match is BROCK LESNAR!!
The cameras then go to the back where The Rock stands with microphone in hand ready to talk to the people. The Rock begins by saying that after what he just say and Brock Lesnar winning the Rumble that it proves anything can happen here in the WWE he says that it proves tonight there is ever possibility of him leaving Arizona with the WWE Championship and that his 10 year wait will FINALLY be over! He says that CM Punk can claim to be whatever he wants to be but after tonight he will be nothing but a has been champion who’s 400+ day title reign was ended by the people and their champion. The Rock says it’s time to get the show on the road and put some boots to asses and says IF YOU SMELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL WHAT THE ROCK IS COOKING!
WWE Championship| CM Punk (w/Paul Heyman) v The Rock
The match starts with the two men going back and forth landing blows on one another to the amusement of the crowd with the cheers and boo chants. The Rock is the first to knock Punk to the ground and he starts to stomp on him again and again as Paul Heyman calls from the apron for him to stop. The Rock turns to Heyman to tell him to take his monkey ass up the ramp and stop annoying him but as Rock turns back round he meets the boot of Punk who now knocks Rock to the mat and the cheers begin to ring from Heyman. Punk then begins to go to work on all body parts of Rock to prevent him from making it back to his feet and from using his fists. 20 more minutes pass and The Rock is well and truly back in control with Punk having to roll from the ring and have Paul Heyman get onto the apron to avoid more beatings from Rock. Cm Punk eventually walks into a Rock Bottom and just as The Rock goes to connect with the Peoples Elbow the lights go off and The Shields music rings throughout the arena. The Shield can be seen making their way through the crowd to Rock and eventually make it to ringside but before they can act Paul Heyman begins to beg them on the mic not to act and to leave the arena before they cost Punk the title. The Rock is then too focused on Heyman and the Shield to notice that Punk has made his way to his feet, the Shield finally begin to back off and as Rock turned round he is hoisted up onto Punks shoulders and Punk connects with the GTS and goes for the pin 1....2....3!!!! Punk wins!
Winner and STILL WWE Champion CM PUNK!!
After the match The Shield climb into the ring and begin a beat down on The Rock as Punk and Heyman celebrate but as they do so the rest of the locker room make their way to the ring lead by Ryback, Sheamus and Orton and The Shield flee and make their way through the crowd. Meanwhile Punk manages to slip past and make his way to the top of the ring and shout BEST IN THE WORLD as he hold the WWE Championship above his head.
