Default WWE 2014: "The Changing of the Guard"


WORLD WRESTLING ENTERTAINMENT: 2014
"The Changing of the Guard"


At WrestleMania XXX, the WWE made a clear statement; it was time for a change of the guard. Whether it be the ending of the fabled WrestleMania Streak of the Undertaker, the crowning of a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion in Daniel Bryan, the continued rise of young talents such as Cesaro and The Shield or simply the impressive performance of the Wyatt Family, the message was clear. The youth movement was taking over in the WWE. True, the likes of John Cena, Randy Orton and Brock Lesnar continue to be huge stars but the way that the legends of Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock and The Undertaker were finally moved on told the story. As WWE evolved into the era of the WWE Network and the fourth decade of WrestleMania, no longer would the youth movement be able to rely on the veterans of the past. Now, it is their time and it is up to them to prove that they can carry this great company. Question is – will they manage it?

The April 7, 2014 edition of WWE's Monday Night Raw emanates live from the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans and opens with Daniel Bryan, the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion. He talks about how two years ago he started the Yes! chant and now that word unites them all. The crowd chants "You deserve it!" Triple H's music hits and he heads to the ring with Stephanie McMahon. The crowd chants "assh*le" at him. Hunter stands on the apron and says he won't get in the ring, so Bryan walks right up to him and hoists both belts for a Yes! chant. Triple H tells him to enjoy the moment because it won't last. Triple H says he will defend the belt tonight against him.

Batista walks in on Triple H and Stephanie backstage and says he doesn't understand why Hunter gets a title shot tonight. Batista says he deserves a one-on-one match. Orton comes in and wants to exercise his rematch clause. Hunter says he is the COO and he runs the company as he sees fit. Stephanie says they are both right and they deserve their matches, but tonight they will face The Usos for the WWE Tag Team Championships. Orton and Batista are not happy, but HHH says when the three of them are on the same page, then no one can stop them.

The Wyatt Family comes to the ring to face John Cena, Sheamus and Big E. in six-man tag team action. The Wyatts win when Bray Wyatt plants Big E. with Sister Abigail. The crowd was SOLIDLY behind the Wyatts in this match.

Fandango and Summer Rae face Santino Marella and Emma and the latter team earns an extremely quick win thanks to the Emma Lock.

Brock Lesnar cones out with Paul Heyman (and a black eye). Heyman praises Lesnar and says he understands how the fans feel, but they told the fans Lesnar would win. Heyman calls himself the greatest manager in history and says the fans doubted them. He says Lesnar is here to shock fans and put tears in the eyes of children. Heyman says let's "shoot from the hip" and says Undertaker collapsed five seconds after walking through the curtain after the match last night. He says Vince McMahon left Mania and rode with Undertaker to the hospital, where he was treated for a concussion. Heyman also says he nearly had a broken neck and fractured skull. Heyman says the announcers and fans gave Undertaker a standing ovation, but Lesnar won the match. He says this is supposed to be the rowdiest crowd of the year, but, like the rest of the locker room, they are all a bunch of wannabes. He says no one in the locker room applauded Lesnar last night. He continues to praise his client, who he says barely tolerates him, and says he is on a platform above all other Hall of Famers and Legends.

The Tag Team Championship match ends in a double count-out as Orton and Batista beat up The Usos outside the ring. Batista hits a Batista Bomb to one of the Usos on the steel steps and Orton hits the hangman's DDT off the barricade on the other. The two pose together in the ring.

Rob Van Dam makes his return to WWE and beats Damien Sandow with the Five Star Frog Splash.

Bad News Barrett defeats Rey Mysterio with the Bullhammer. This is the closest Rey Mysterio has ever been to being a heel, as the crowd booed him throughout the match but cheered Barrett.

Lana comes out and introduces Alexander Rusev, who squashes Zack Ryder with a submission maneuver called The Accolade.

The Ultimate Warrior heads to the ring and puts on a mask to resemble his old face paint. He says the fans are the ones who made him a legend and praises the crowd.

AJ Lee and Tamina Snuka make their way to the ring and the champ talks about her 295-day title reign. She references her pipe bomb from a few months ago and calls herself "The Best Diva in the World," which draws a "CM Punk" chant. She says she IS the Divas division, but Paige's music hits and she makes her way to the ring. Paige says she came to do what no one else would, which is congratulate AJ. The champ thanks her but tells her to run back to NXT. The champ challenges her to a match, but Paige says she isn't ready. AJ slaps her and says she'll put her title on the line as a special post-WrestleMania treat. The match begins and AJ tries to lock in the Black Widow, but Paige counters into the Paige Turner and pins AJ to become the new Divas champion.

Hulk Hogan comes to the ring to present the Andre The Giant trophy to Cesaro. He talks about Cesaro throwing Big Show over the top rope and how it filled him with emotion. He introduces the winner, who comes out with Zeb Colter. Hogan congratulates him and gives him the mic, but Zeb takes it and says he brought Cesaro into the fold as a Real American months ago. He says he made him a "Zeb Colter Guy," but Cesaro takes the mic and says he is not that guy anymore because he is now a "Paul Heyman Guy." Heyman comes out and says he is the advocate for the King of Swing, Cesaro. Colter is angry, but Heyman calls him "grandpa" and says this is a week of shocking moments for Paul Heyman Guys. Jack Swagger runs out, attacks Cesaro and destroys the trophy. Cesaro rushes the ring and attacks Swagger, which sets up a match. Cesaro tries to set up a Giant Swing, but Swagger flees the ring and gets counted out.

Stephanie McMahon is backstage with Kane and The Shield. She says what happened between them at Mania was irrelevant and that they need to be on the same page to help Triple H win tonight. The Shield makes fun of the New Age Outlaws' absence. Kane calls them pawns, but Stephanie yells at him and tells them all to fall in line.

Daniel Bryan comes out to the ring for his title defense, but Orton and Batista come out after him and attack him in the ring. Orton hits an RKO and Batista hits a Batista Bomb. Kane emerges and chokeslams Bryan. Triple H's music hits and he heads to the ring with Stephanie for the match as Bryan is down in the middle of the ring. Triple H tries to get referee Mike Chioda to ring the bell, but he hesitates. He eventually rings it and Triple H moves in on Bryan, but The Shield comes through the crowd (with masks on). They jump up on the apron with Batista, Orton and Kane on the other side. The Shield gets in the ring and Triple H gets in their faces. He tries to calm down Orton, Batista and Kane, but he turns around into a spear from Roman Reigns. All hell breaks loose as Reigns delivers a Superman punch to Kane. They surround Triple H, who eats a running knee from Daniel Bryan. The champ leads a Yes chant from the turnbuckle as The Shield poses in the ring as the show goes off the air.

The April 11, 2014 edition of WWE's Friday Night Smackdown emanates live from Lafayette, Louisiana and begins with John Cena, who says that we are in a new era after WrestleMania 30.

The Wyatt Family cuts a promo backstage and Bray Wyatt says he must go to "new extremes" to bring the monster out of John Cena.

Cesaro (w/Paul Heyman) defeats Big Show via disqualification. He works as a heel throughout the match. The match ends with Jack Swagger attacking Cesaro and putting him the Patriot Lock. Cesaro hits Big Show with the Neutralizer. Before the match, Heyman cuts a promo about Cesaro and Brock Lesnar.

The April 14, 2014 edition of WWE's Monday Night Raw emanates live from the BJCC Arena in Birmingham and begins with every Superstar on the stage as they pay tribute to the Ultimate Warrior. A video package rolls celebrating the man's life, then they toll the bell 10 times during a period of silence. Everyone then bursts into applause as Jerry "The King" Lawler invites everyone to celebrate Warrior's life. Many of the fans are wearing Ultimate Warrior masks. The Superstars and fans join together in a "Warrior" chant.

Rob Van Dam and Alberto Del Rio face off in the first match of the night, as well as the first match of the eight-man, single-elimination tournament to determine the No. 1 Contender to Big E.'s Intercontinental Championship. RVD picks up the win when he counters the Cross Arm Breaker and then hits a Five Star Frog Splash for the pin.

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are backstage with Randy Orton and Batista. They all shake hands, but we can't hear what they're saying. After a commercial, Triple H informs them that Daniel Bryan is not here but it doesn't matter because The Shield is the bigger problem. He says they will not let either of them near the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and that The Shield reminds him of Evolution. Triple H says no one might be able to stop them, but Stephanie says the three of them can, and Triple H agrees. Batista and Orton both reaffirm their singles goals and say Triple H is on his own. They leave, but Stephanie says she has an idea.

Rybaxel defeat The Rhodes Brothers when Ryback.hits Cody Rhodes with a Meathook Clothesline.

Paige faces Alicia Fox and the new Divas Champion picks up the win via submission with the Scorpion Cross Lock.

The Usos get a rematch with Randy Orton and Batista but the match ends in a disqualification when The Shield runs in and assaults Orton. They surround Batista in the ring and he eats a Superman Punch from Roman Reigns.

Orton and Batista are walking backstage when Triple H and Stephanie walk up. Hunter simply says, "Told ya."

Paul Heyman comes out and says multiple times that Brock Lesnar conquered the streak. He praises Lesnar some more and then brings out Cesaro for his match with Mark Henry in the No. 1 Contender's tournament. Cesaro earns the win when he hits the Neutralizer on Henry.

Alexander Rusev (w/Lana) defeats Xavier Woods (w/R-Truth) in a squash when he makes him tap to the Accolade. R-Truth jumps in to help Woods, but Rusev stares him down and attacks him after Lana gives the command.

Sheamus defeats Jack Swagger (w/Zeb Colter) with a Brogue Kick out of nowhere to advance in the Intercontinental Championship tournament.

Damien Sandow comes out and says he deserves this time in front of the crowd. Big Show comes out, but Sandow mocks the crowd for cheering Show and booing him. Sandow says everyone should beg to shake his hand and asks Show if he has anything to say. The big man is silent, but Sandow gets in Big Show's face and calls himself the future of the WWE. Show hits him with the Knockout Punch and leaves.

The Wyatt Family makes their way to the ring and Bray cuts a promo. He says he has never lied to any of them, but John Cena has made a career of it. He says he has Cena up against the ropes and on the edge, and all he needs is a push. Bray says he does not want to slay the monster yet, but he does want it to come out and play. Cena emerges and says he wants to have some fun. He talks about getting Bray drunk to loosen him up. Cena shows a picture of Sister Abigail Wyatt and it's just Bray in a dress. He shows another female family member that is Luke Harper and a baby that is Erick Rowan. Bray says all Cena knows how to do is make jokes, but Cena gets serious and talks about his WrestleMania win. He challenges Bray to a match in a steel cage match at Extreme Rules with no family members there. Bray says they play with knives and one of them will get stabbed, and he thinks it will be Cena.

We learn The Shield will face a mystery opponent later tonight.

Santino Marella and Emma face Fandango and Layla and the latter team picks up the win when Layla pins Emma with a roll up.

Stephanie McMahon is backstage and tells Kane that his job performance has been lacking. She says she does not want to hear his apologies, but instead she wants the strong man she and Hunter hired as Director of Operations. She calls him a shell of what he used to be and asks what happened to him. He stands up and stares her down before he walks over to the glass case with his mask in it. He stares at the mask, removes the glass and picks up the mask. He says he will send Daniel Bryan to the depths of Hell.

Wade Barrett defeats Dolph Ziggler with the Bull Hammer. He cuts a "bad news" promo and calls himself the next Intercontinental Champion.

This means Cesaro will face RVD and Sheamus will face Barrett in the semifinals of the No. 1 Contender's tournament.

The Shield comes out to face their mystery opponents, and out come Alberto Del Rio, Jack Swagger, Fandango, 3MB, Titus O'Neil, Rybaxel, Alexander Rusev and Wade Barrett. Reigns spears Ryback on the outside after a bit of action and all the heels gang up on him to cause the referee to ring the bell. The Shield manages to fight everyone off after Seth Rollins takes everyone out with a dive over the top rope. The heels flood the ring and beat down The Shield. Evolution's music then hits and Triple H, Orton and Batista emerge. They slowly make their way down the ramp and the heels clear the ring. Evolution then gets in a few shots and Orton RKOs Reigns. Batista follows that up with a Batista Bomb. Seth Rollins gets the same treatment and Dean Ambrose eats the Batista Bomb/RKO combo (similar to what happened to Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 30). Roman Reigns tries to crawl but Triple H taunts him. He grabs a microphone and tells them to "believe in Evolution." They pose on the ropes and turnbuckles as the show goes off the air.

Due to RAW this week “ripping off” many of my ideas, I’ve decided to use a recap form to summarise the matches for Extreme Rules. I will then write the Extreme Rules PPV and start writing full TV shows from that point on. GCB

WWE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP – NO DISQUALIFICATION
Daniel Bryan © vs. ???


and …

SIX MAN TAG TEAM MATCH
Evolution vs. The Shield



RAW (April 21): Since Summerslam of 2013, Daniel Bryan’s has been overcoming the obstacles placed in his path time and time and time again but now he is living his dream; after capturing the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania XXX – by defeating first Triple H in the opening contest and then Batista and Randy Orton in the main event – Bryan also took time off following the RAW after WrestleMania to marry Brie Bella as well. With the “love of his life” now permanently on his arm and the gold around his waist, what could go wrong for Daniel Bryan? According to Stephanie McMahon, the Principal Owner of the WWE and, of course, the wife of the man Bryan embarrassed at WrestleMania, Triple H, the answer to that question would come in the form of the seven foot, 300 pound “Devil’s Favourite Demon” himself, Kane. On Bryan’s return to RAW after his marriage, Kane, complete with his fearsome mask, returned to target Bryan and his new wife and succeeded in capturing Brie in Baltimore on the April 21 episode of RAW. A distressed Bryan agreed to Stephanie’s demands; Bryan would defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship that night against Kane in a No Disqualification match in order for the safe return of Brie into his arms. Whilst Stephanie and Kane appeared to believe that Bryan would be in no fit state mentally to defend his title, things didn’t quite go to plan and Bryan, urged on by the Baltimore crowd and defending the honour of his wife, reached deep inside and found his own venomous side as he revelled in the No Disqualification rule. After numerous chair shots to the demented Kane, Bryan hit the Busaiku Running Knee and made the 3 count in order to retain his WWE World Heavyweight Championship as well as a reunion with Brie. However, an angry and frustrated Kane interrupted the celebration with a huge Choke Slam to Bryan and this proved the cue for the music of Evolution, the group that reformed whilst Bryan was away celebrating his honeymoon with Brie, and the arrival of Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista …

Now, of course, WrestleMania XXX has been a nightmare for these three men and the RAW that followed failed to improve their mood. With Bryan the champion, Triple H implored Batista and Orton to get on the same page as problems erupted between themselves and The Shield. Once the protection of choice for Triple H, Roman Reigns’ Spear to The Game on the RAW after WrestleMania had sent a clear message; no more were Ambrose, Reigns and Rollins the puppets of the Authority. However, as we saw the following week, The Shield were forced to compete in a 11 vs. 3 Handicap match in the main event which simply turned into a beatdown. Following this, Batista, Orton and HHH came out to music not heard in a long time – “Line in the Sand” signalling the return of Evolution. After destroying Shield to close RAW, it appeared that the Authority-Evolution alliance was back in control. The following week, whilst Daniel Bryan had his problems with Stephanie and Kane, Triple H caused problems for the three individual members of The Shield. Dean Ambrose’s close to year-long reign as the United States Champion came to an end when he was forced into a Six-Pack Challenge and The Miz was able to emerge victorious thanks to a distraction to Ambrose by the New Age Outlaws. More cunning tricks and deception allowed Orton and Batista to win their respective matches with Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns before the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match between Bryan and Kane …

With Evolution having the upper hand over The Shield in Baltimore, they now turned their sights on Bryan. Joining Kane in the ring, Evolution stood over Bryan and things looked bleak for the popular WWE World Heavyweight Champion as he attempted to pull himself up using the ropes. However, as Bryan looked in big danger, The Shield’s music hit and they came through the crowd and into the ring. Evolution and Kane stand facing The Shield whilst Bryan is helped out of the ring by Brie Bella – stand off. The crowd buzz in anticipation but the confrontation that they want to see fails to materialise. Batista and Orton suddenly grab Kane and shove him forward towards The Shield and they assault the Devil’s Favourite Demon. However, Evolution take the high road and they leave Kane high and dry. After a Spear from Roman Reigns to Kane, Evolution watch on from the ramp as The Shield lift him high … Triple Powerbomb! RAW closes with The Shield dominant once again, Evolution watching from the stage and Daniel Bryan still the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.



SMACKDOWN (April 25): Unsurprisingly, Kane is unhappy over the way Evolution fed him to The Shield on RAW and confronts Stephanie on SMACKDOWN the following Friday. Back in his corporate suit and tie, Kane demands answers from Triple H but Steph refuses him that opportunity but does tell him that he let her down on RAW by failing to defeat Daniel Bryan. Stephanie again delivers a monologue expressing her dismay at the way Kane has let go of his demented side, she throws the mask at Kane once more and tells him that tonight he needs to find it again as he is going up against The Shield in a Handicap match. Kane shakes his head, unhappy at this prospect, but Stephanie is unrelenting and demands that Kane go out there tonight and use his inner demon to destroy the “Hounds of Justice” once and for all. It is also announced by HHH later that Daniel Bryan will face Batista and Orton in a Tag Team match for the main event but needs to find a partner. HHH comments that it will be “interesting” to see who has the guts to back Bryan up against Evolution and The Authority.

Despite Stephanie’s pep talk, Kane, back in the mask, is unable to defeat The Shield. Instead, they score a relatively comfortable victory before exiting the ring and Kane is frustrated in the ring. Out comes Triple H and tells Kane that he has all the answers he needs; HHH accuses Kane of being a failure in his job with The Authority and, reminiscent of his father-in-law, HHH announces to Kane that “You’re firrrred!” to the delight of the crowd.

After announcements are made that Dean Ambrose will get his United States Championship rematch against The Miz on RAW, SMACKDOWN’s main event takes place and Seth Rollins heads out to partner Daniel Bryan in his match against Batista and Orton. With the rest of The Shield at ringside, Rollins and Bryan work as a cohesive team and are able to score a huge victory over Batista and Orton when Bryan hits the Running Knee through Orton for the 3. Evolution back off beaten, their pride wounded, as Bryan and The Shield celebrate … and then Reigns hits Bryan with a Spear out of nowhere! What the hell are The Shield doing?



RAW (April 28): The Shield open RAW the following Monday with an explanation; they inform Bryan that Reigns’ Spear on SMACKDOWN was nothing personal, it was simply a message to him: they are not on his side. Rollins informs the WWE Universe that whilst Daniel Bryan and The Shield have a common foe in The Authority, the fact remains that Daniel Bryan is the WWE World Heavyweight Champion and all three members of The Shield have their eyes on him and his title. Out comes Bryan and he gets in the ring with the trio, he says he understands their reasoning but that if they want a shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, they only have to ask. Bryan claims that he will forever be a “fighting champion” who defends the gold against whoever wants a shot; he just asks that whoever that challenger is, they challenge him to his face. There appears to be an element of understanding between Bryan and The Shield here and Bryan says that right now he has no challenger for the title come Extreme Rules and, whilst he knows that The Shield have a match that night against Evolution already set, he would be prepared to defend against any single one of them … Cue the interruption from Triple H. He says he finds this very interesting and makes the decision that whoever makes the winning fall at Extreme Rules between Evolution and The Shield, that man will go on to challenge Daniel Bryan later that evening in the main event. However, tonight, whilst Orton and Batista have a well-earned night off, Dean Ambrose faces The Miz for the US Championship and Bryan will face Reigns in the RAW main event.

The United States Championship match ends with more controversy as Miz manages to retain his title against Ambrose thanks to, again, the New Age Outlaws. For the second time in a week, they do the bidding of their friend HHH and ensure that Ambrose fails against Miz. That leads to a decision that later in the evening, the Outlaws will face Ambrose and Rollins and the two members of The Shield take a modicum of revenge when they defeat Billy Gunn and Road Dogg. In the main event between Bryan and Reigns, a competitive match descends into a farce when Evolution, including Batista and Orton who are supposed to be taking the night off, the New Age Outlaws and The Miz – for some reason – head out. Bryan and Reigns are decimated whilst Rollins and Ambrose, trying to rescue their fallen member, are jumped backstage by the heels of the WWE clearly on orders of Triple H. RAW ends with The Shield and Bryan significantly weakened with just six days to recover for Extreme Rules.



SMACKDOWN (May 2): On SMACKDOWN, HHH, from the comfort of his office, announces that tonight will see The Shield vs. New Age Outlaws & The Miz whilst Daniel Bryan will face a Handicap match this week as he faces Batista and Orton. In an interview prior to the 6-man tag, Miz declares that he is loving being part of The Authority but those words backfire when the Outlaws walk out on him during their match; The Shield destroy The Miz and later in the show, Stephanie informs Miz that his only use was to take the US Championship and that he is certainly not of sufficient calibre to be a member of the Authority. In the main event, Bryan competes well but there appears to be a little dissension in the ranks of Evolution now that the title is on the line if they can emerge victorious at Extreme Rules. In the end, Triple H interferes in the match and hits the Pedigree to Bryan handing the WWE World Heavyweight Champion a DQ win. As Triple H signals the belt around his waist, Batista and Orton look on with looks of annoyance. An argument erupts between them and Orton, as if to prove a point, hits an RKO on Bryan before motioning that he will be the new champion. Not impressed, Batista drags Bryan up … Batista Bomb! It appears all three members of Evolution believe that they should challenge Bryan – if they beat The Shield of course – and there is maybe a problem brewing down the line?

*** PREVIEW ***


INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Big E © vs. Bad News Barrett



RAW (April 21): The tournament to crown a new #1 contender continues on RAW as we move on to the Semi Finals – Cesaro vs. Rob Van Dam, Bad News Barrett vs. Sheamus. With interest growing amongst the WWE Universe to see who would challenge Big E for the Intercontinental Championship at Extreme Rules, RAW opened with Bad News Barrett defeating the Celtic Warrior Sheamus and earning his spot in the Final of the tournament thanks to the Bullhammer Elbow; however, the win is controversial due to Barrett ramming Sheamus shoulder first into an exposed turnbuckle immediate to hitting the finisher. Later in the evening, Cesaro, with Paul Heyman of course, faces RVD in the second Semi Final and a competitive match is spoiled when Cesaro’s former Real American partner, Jack Swagger, arrives to distract Cesaro before he hits the Giant Swing. A groggy RVD, unaware of Swagger’s presence, rolls up Cesaro and catches him unaware to get the 3 count.


SMACKDOWN (April 25): On SMACKDOWN, Bad News Barrett and Sheamus clash for a second time as Sheamus looks for revenge after his defeat on RAW whilst Barrett looks to gain further momentum ahead of the Final next Monday. However, bad news for the Celtic Warrior, he was unable once again to get the better of Barrett and another Bullhammer Elbow finished him once again. RVD is also on SMACKDOWN ahead of the Final but he is unhappy with the way he won his match on RAW; he challenges Jack Swagger to a match and they compete with RVD hitting the Five Star Frog Splash for the victory. After the match though, Cesaro attacks Swagger and their feud continues to bubble away.


RAW (April 28): So the tournament reaches a conclusion; Bad News Barrett vs. RVD for the right to challenge Big E for the Intercontinental Championship at Extreme Rules. With Big E at ringside, the two go on to have a competitive match and the crowd are solidly behind RVD who looks set for victory when he goes up for the Frog Splash. However, Barrett rolls clear and RVD collides with the mat before being struck hard with the Bullhammer Elbow to secure the win. At Extreme Rules, it will be Bad News Barrett challenging the Intercontinental Champion Big E.


SMACKDOWN (May 2): With their title match set for Sunday at Extreme Rules, Big E declares that Barrett’s return to in-ring action has been impressive but that will all come to an end this Sunday. However, Barrett sneaks up into the ring behind the Intercontinental Champion and hits a surprise Bullhammer Elbow before suggesting that he will be delivering more ‘bad news’ on Sunday.


****************


“REAL AMERICAN” STREET FIGHT
Cesaro (w/Paul Heyman) vs. Jack Swagger (w/Zeb Colter)



RAW (April 21): After failing to win the United States Championship from Dean Ambrose (with The Miz winning it instead), Swagger and Colter argue a little backstage which causes some amusement to a passing Cesaro. This leads to Swagger costing Cesaro his Semi Final match in the Intercontinental Championship tournament against RVD and their feud boils away as Cesaro splits away from the Intercontinental Championship tournament into a feud with Swagger instead.


SMACKDOWN (April 25): On SMACKDOWN, Cesaro impresses the world when he challenges – and defeats – the Big Show on SMACKDOWN; so much so that Big Show shakes his hand after the match. On the other hand, RVD and Swagger meet on SMACKDOWN but Cesaro, sore from Swagger costing him the match on RAW, attacks Swagger after the match. With Heyman and Colter arguing in a heap as well, it becomes clear that Swagger and Cesaro are destined to meet come Extreme Rules.


RAW (April 28): On RAW, Cesaro and Swagger are scheduled to fight one on one but the match ends early when Swagger, frustrated after Cesaro fights out of the Patriot Lock, resorts to using a steel chair instead. Despite the DQ win for Cesaro, Swagger bludgeons his former partner with the chair but Paul Heyman, safely out of the way, interrupts with the microphone. He suggests that if Swagger wants to make things personal and extreme, then maybe at Extreme Rules, they should fight in a Street Fight, a “Real American” Street Fight. Swagger and Colter accept the match and things are set for Sunday.


SMACKDOWN (May 2): On SMACKDOWN, Swagger attacks Cesaro backstage and injures his former partner with a brutal attack. Later, Swagger, in preparation for Sunday, faces Big Show in a No DQ match, looking to emulate Cesaro last week on SMACKDOWN, and gets a huge win; can he derail Cesaro at Extreme Rules?


****************


STEEL CAGE MATCH
Bray Wyatt (w/Erick Rowan & Luke Harper) vs. John Cena



RAW (April 21): With their Steel Cage match set, Bray Wyatt declares that Cena is intimidated by his mere presence in the WWE; all this talk of being the “standard bearer” and the “measuring stick” and the jokes is a front, Cena is hiding his true worries. Bray says he will bring out the inner monster in John Cena at Extreme Rules. Later, Cena faces Luke Harper and gets the win but it is a spirited effort from Harper who impresses. After the match, Cena fights off Rowan’s attack before looking Bray dead in the eye; double assault from behind by Harper and Rowan. Sister Abigail is hit and Bray has the upper hand once more.


SMACKDOWN (April 25): On RAW, the Wyatt Family will face Cena and Cody Rhodes and Goldust but tonight Cena faces Erick Rowan. Cena gets the win and this time exits the ring instead of facing up to Bray and Harper. Bray hits the mike and says Cena is changing; he is running scared when he would normally fight. Bray challenges Cena to deny it but he doesn’t and exits to maniacal laughing from Wyatt.


RAW (April 28): Cena and the Rhodes Brothers get the win over the Wyatt – though Bray stays out of the match throughout. Afterwards, Cody and Goldust are attacked sneakily and then Cena fights Harper and Rowan in the ring. Bray steps into the ring and signals – the steel cage drops. The Wyatts destroy Cena in the ring once more after he refuses to run a second time.


SMACKDOWN (May 2): Luke Harper and Erick Rowan defeat Cody Rhodes and Goldust as Bray Wyatt looks on; after, Bray has a final message for Cena. Win, lose or draw, he is determined to bring out Cena’s hidden monster or he will die trying. He will prove that Cena does not live up to the words on his t-shirt.

Default Sunday May 4, 2014: EXTREME RULES (pre-show)



EXTREME RULES
Izod Center
East Rutherford, NJ
Sunday May 4, 2014






EXTREME RULES PRE-SHOW
LIVE & EXCLUSIVE ON THE WWE NETWORK



Josh Mathews welcomes the WWE Universe to the Extreme Rules pre-show and declares that we have a massive night of action here in East Rutherford, New Jersey, with four titles on the line, a huge 6-man tag team match, a “Real American” Street Fight and a Steel Cage match for starters. As Mathews runs down the card, he makes a big deal of the fact that Daniel Bryan goes into his first PPV defence of his WWE World Heavyweight Championship but, as yet, he does not know who he will be facing. Mathews then introduces his Extreme Rules pre-show Panel for this evening – the ever dependable former WCW Champion, Booker T; the always explosive “Nature Boy” Ric Flair; and a man who knows a thing or two about the world of “extreme” … Rob Van Dam. Shots of the crowd filing into the Izod Center are shown whilst the three panellists give their initial thoughts about tonight’s event. Mathews then reveals that there will be two matches tonight on the pre-show:

BIG SHOW vs. DAMIEN SANDOW
ALEXANDER RUSEV vs. KOFI KINGSTON


As we first see a replay of Big Show’s big right hand to Sandow a couple of weeks ago, Mathews says that the punch left Sandow concussed and unable to compete until tonight where he will look for revenge on Show; Booker T suggests that Sandow should have taken a whole heap of time longer to prepare for Big Show and that he can only see one outcome here tonight and that’s another knockout for Damien. Moving on, Mathews introduces replays of the impressive debut of Alexander Rusev over recent weeks and his dominating victories over the likes of Xavier Woods, R-Truth, Zack Ryder and, this past week on SMACKDOWN, Kofi Kingston who he faces again tonight. Ric Flair gives his opinion that Kofi was the first man to show signs of weakness in Rusev last week on SMACKDOWN and that he expects the Ghanaian to cause more problems tonight for the Bulgarian Brute.



After the highlights package of Daniel Bryan overcoming the odds at WrestleMania to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, the cameras switch backstage where Renee Young is stood in the Extreme Rules interview area. She introduces her guest for the interview segment – the Principal Owner of the WWE; the glamorous and smiling Stephanie McMahon. Renee suggests that Stephanie has an announcement she wishes to make and hands over the microphone to her boss.

STEPHANIE McMAHON:
Thank you, Renee. As you just saw, Daniel Bryan overcame all the odds at WrestleMania 30 to become your WWE World Heavyweight Champion and, contrary to what you may all believe, The Authority, once we had time to reflect, were impressed with the guts shown by Daniel. Whilst my husband, Triple H, and I continue to believe that Daniel is not WWE World Heavyweight Champion material, we recognise the sacrifices that Daniel has made to reach this point in his career. At WrestleMania, Daniel won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and that proves to every single member of the WWE Universe that no matter what your limitations, you can be a star if you work hard enough and believe in yourself. Unfortunately though, Daniel, all dreams have to end and tonight is the night that yours ends. You see, when Evolution destroy The Shield later tonight, one of Batista, Randy Orton or Triple H will be challenging you for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and then the clock will be striking midnight. However, I’m sure you’ll agree with me, Daniel, when I say that if your challenger is already through a gruelling 6-man Tag match before he faces you, surely you should have a match beforehand too? Therefore, Daniel Bryan will be competing in another match tonight at Extreme Rules in a non-title match before facing the winner of the 6-man Tag. Now, I expect you’re wondering who that opponent will be but we’re going to leave that little announcement until the actual PPV, a surprise for Daniel Bryan I guess you could call it? After that match, we’ll end the night with the title match and the Cinderella story of Daniel Bryan will come to an end as we crown a new WWE World … Heavyweight … Champion. Thank you, Renee.

Stephanie smiles at Renee and hands back the microphone before we return to the panellists on the platform in the arena who are looking to each other and shaking their heads. As Mathews reminds us of tonight’s matches involving Evolution, The Shield and Daniel Bryan, he asks the experts for their opinions on Daniel Bryan’s chances of walking out of Extreme Rules as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

BOOKER T:
Aww, shucks man, I gotta’ bad feeling about this one tonight for my boy, D-Bryan. Dat Stephanie McMahon is a she-devil, you dig me, but dat announcement right there, dat’s huge for tonight, man. I don’t see no way dat Daniel can survive the night as the champion.

RIC FLAIR:
I gotta’ agree with my man, Booker T, on this one, Josh. I know first-hand how powerful Evolution can be, I saw it up close and personal …

ROB VAN DAM:
Usually with me the victim, man!

RIC FLAIR:
Haha, that’s true! I fully expect Evolution to beat those boys from The Shield and I just can’t see how Daniel Bryan can overcome those odds whoever he has to face – especially after wrestling a match before that too. So I’m going for one of my boys, one of Evolution baby … Woooo!

ROB VAN DAM:
I don’t know, man, I don’t think you can count out Daniel Bryan. We’ve seen in the past that he can overcome the odds even when they’re stacked against him so I don’t know, I can see Bryan walking out champion tonight. But don’t count out The Shield, they could easily be the guys to get the win tonight and one of them challenge Bryan for the title to close the night.

After hearing the views of the three experts regarding Daniel Bryan’s defence of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, Mathews throws to Michael Cole, Jerry “The King” Lawler and JBL who are at ringside at the announce table for the first match of the pre-show here tonight. Cole welcomes us all to the Extreme Rules PPV and declares that tonight will be an explosive night here as we watch two of the most dominant factions of all times in Evolution and The Shield. JBL says that he cannot wait to see it whilst King suggests that he is looking forward to the clash inside the Steel Cage between Bray Wyatt and John Cena tonight.

HALLELUJAH
DAMIEN SANDOW


Striding out into the arena, wearing his I > U t-shirt, Damien Sandow heads for the ring looking around the arena with disgust on his face as he is confronted by some of the “unwashed masses” here tonight. Into the ring Sandow goes as replays of Show hitting the KO Punch on RAW three weeks ago are shown; when the cameras return to the ring, Sandow looks angry at this being shown until we hear the familiar “Weeelllllllll!” to signal the arrival of Big Show.

CRANK IT UP
BIG SHOW


Out walks Big Show, smiling around at the crowd and clapping hands with them, before he heads for the ring and Damien Sandow. As Show steps over the top rope, Sandow orders the referee to stop Show until the bell rings. Show yells out to the crowd and salutes them before the referee signals for the bell on this first match here tonight for the Extreme Rules PPV pre-show.

Quote:
BIG SHOW vs. DAMIEN SANDOW
For the opening moments of the contest, Sandow looks to frustrate the WWE’s largest athlete by dodging him and dropping out of the ring which completely angers the Big Show. Several times, Sandow exits the ring and then re-enters before he is counted out but he refuses to get involved with Show in any kind of physical altercation. Eventually, the anger spills over in Show, he drops out of the ring and stalks after Sandow who flees around the ring. Once back in the ring though, Sandow waits for Show to come in, head first, and then pounces. As Damien Sandow pummels away at the Big Show, he ignores the protestations of the referee and then stands and stomps all over the shoulders and back of Show. With Show hurt a little, Sandow takes advantage as he gets to his knees and hits a DDT to the big man before making the cover. Unfortunately for Sandow, Show throws him off with ease at 2 but it doesn’t put him off. More kicks from Sandow before he twists Show’s head round and hits a neckbreaker. With Sandow taking control, he hits the Elbow of Disdain as well before getting another 2 count. As Show tries to get up off the mat once more, Sandow looks for a step up kick to the head of Show but the big man catches the leg of Sandow and his face turns into a look of horror. As Show drags Sandow around, the crowd who are in their seats cheer before Show releases Sandow and then grabs him by the throat … CHOKE SLAM! Big Show takes a second or two to recover from the shots he has taken before dragging Sandow up off the mat. He whips him to the corner and then squashes him in the corner before using a headbutt to knock him down once more. This is beginning to look predictable as Show prepares himself … KNOCKOUT PUNCH! Show knocks Sandow cold once again and then makes the pin but it is academic, Show gets the victory here tonight.
WINNER: Big Show (5:47)
Big Show celebrates the win and salutes the crowd once more as the camera focuses in on Sandow who is out cold once again. Cole hypes up the power of Show before throwing back to the WWE Network panel where Josh Mathews and the panel react to the victory of Big Show. With all three men impressed by Show getting another big win here tonight in comprehensive fashion, Mathews throws out to another highlights package from WrestleMania 30, this time featuring Bray Wyatt and John Cena.



After the highlights, we return to the interview pit backstage and back to the beautiful Renee Young who is standing beside her next guest who she introduces – John Cena. Renee asks Cena how he is feeling heading into tonight’s Steel Cage contest with Bray Wyatt considering the way Bray has been trying to break into his head recently.

JOHN CENA:
You know something, Renee? Bray Wyatt thinks he is getting inside my head, he thinks he is invading my thoughts 24/7 and he thinks he has me running scared. And I’ll admit, Bray, you’re right about being in my head but I assure you that you do not have me running scared. Are you inside my head, Bray? Have you and your family got so far inside my head that I can’t stop thinking about you? You damn right, Jack, but only because I keep imagining what I’m going to do to you tonight here at Extreme Rules, inside that steel cage, one on one. You see, Bray Wyatt thinks he knows all the questions to ask to bring me down from within. He thinks that he holds the power, he thinks he has me mentally beaten. Let me ask you a question though, Bray. What happens tonight when you lose? What happens when Bray Wyatt, once again, just like WrestleMania 30, fails to finish the job? What then? I’ve been in this business for over a decade, I know what it takes to go inside that steel cage and emerge victorious.

A shot of the steel cage hanging in the rafters of the Izod Center shows as Cena continues to speak …



JOHN CENA:
I’ve said it before, Bray, I will say it again. To be anything in this business, you’ve gotta’ go through ME. You might have left me laid out a couple of times, you might have had your two goons assault me over and over but when we rolled into WrestleMania, despite all that you promised, you failed to beat John Cena and you failed to shut me down. So tonight, steel cage, you and me, Bray. One on one. I’m tired of all the talking, I’m damn sick and tired of the cheap shots and the numbers game. You want some, Bray Wyatt? Well, come get some, I’ll be out there tonight, ready and waiting, whether you like me or hate me, the fact is that to be a major player here in the WWE, you’ve gotta’ go through me. Enough of the talk, Bray Wyatt. I’m here tonight to fight.

As Cena, a focused look of determination in his eyes, heads away from the interview area, Renee thanks him for his time and the cameras switch back to the Extreme Rules panel. In the background, the seats are filling up now with excited WWE fans who are here tonight for what should be an amazing PPV which includes, as just mentioned, the Steel Cage match between Bray Wyatt, the leader of the Wyatt Family, and John Cena. Mathews uses Cena’s words to argue against Wyatt being inside his head but then asks the question – can John Cena put Bray Wyatt in his place here tonight?

BOOKER T:
Dawg, you don’t ever bet against John Cena and tonight no different. While this boy Bray Wyatt talks a good game, he needs to prove dat his words mean something, he needs to show dat he has the tools to get the job done, if you know what I’m sayin’ … Can he get dat job done tonight? I don’t know the answer to dat question, Josh, but I do know dat John Cena will be fightin’ and swingin’ until he has nothing left. Dat’s why I’m gonna’ go with Cena, man.

RIC FLAIR:
You just gotta’ look at this kid, Bray Wyatt, though, Book, he’s the real deal in this business. You wanna’ make your name in the WWE, you gotta’ go after the big dog in the pond and, right now, that man is John Cena. In my opinion, tonight is the night that Bray Wyatt steps up and makes his mark. Wooooo!

ROB VAN DAM:
I’m one of the lucky ones on the WWE roster that hasn’t been involved with Bray Wyatt yet, man, but I do know John Cena and he is tough as they come. I gotta’ go with Ric here though, I think this could be Bray’s night but like Booker said, you count out Cena at your own risk.

Mathews thanks the three experts for their views before we head into a commercial explaining how the WWE Network works and how subscribers to the Network can see tonight’s PPV without paying extra for it. Once the commercial ends, we are back at ringside with Michael Cole, Jerry “The King” Lawler and John Bradshaw Layfield and it appears to be time for our second match tonight on the Extreme Rules PPV pre-show.

S.O.S.
KOFI KINGSTON


Decent pop for the arrival of the popular Kofi Kingston as he heads out ready for action here tonight against the man who beat him this week on SMACKDOWN, the Bulgarian Brute, Alexander Rusev. As Kofi slides into the ring and salutes the fans with the “Boom! Boom! Boom!” in the corner, Cole and JBL hype up the encounter by telling us how Kofi, more than any other opponent Rusev has faced so far, troubled the newcomer. Clips of Kofi connecting with some of his signature moves are shown before we see how Lana distracted Kingston long enough for his attempted Trouble in Paradise to be countered into a Samoan Drop before Rusev hit the Bulplex – a release German suplex – to get the win and to extend his undefeated run.

On stage, the “Ravishing Russian” Lana heads out and she speaks to the WWE Universe in Russian first of all with predictable “What?” chants in response. When Lana repeats in English, she introduces the man who will shatter the “American Dream” and destroy the hopes and dreams of all the little children who follow Kofi Kingston, the Bulgarian Brute … Alexander Rusev!

ROAR OF THE LION
ALEXANDER RUSEV
with Lana


As Rusev, with Lana in tow, makes his way down the ramp towards the ring, the crowd appear to be mesmerised by him. Once in the ring, he goes through his ritual offering prayers above before turning his attention towards Kingston who does not look at all intimidated. When both men are ready, the referee calls for the bell …

Quote:
ALEXANDER RUSEV (with Lana) vs. KOFI KINGSTON
From the start, Kofi goes on the offensive – his strategy appears to be to take out Rusev before the Bulgarian gets chance to take him out and it works as he catches his opponent by surprise. Using the pace advantage he clearly has, Kingston befuddles Rusev and when he comes off the top rope and connects with a Missile Dropkick, things look possible for Kingston as he looks to be the first man to defeat Rusev here in the WWE. However, when Kofi mounts the Bulgarian in the corner and launches right hands into his face, Rusev explodes by throwing Kofi halfway across the ring with one simple shove. Barraging his way through Kingston with a shoulder tackle, the tide, just like that, has changed completely. Tying Kingston up over the top rope, Rusev drives his knees into the ribs of the Ghanaian and looks to have severely knocked the wind out of Kofi’s sails before he picks him up and raises him over his head before dropping him down to the mat. In control now, Rusev whips Kofi to the ropes and looks for a Samoan Drop but Kofi lands on his feet, acrobatically bouncing straight back up as Rusev spins … Dropkick to the face of the Bulgarian and a 2 count! As Rusev powers out at 2, Kofi quickly gets to his feet and springboards off the ropes into a Crossbody that again knocks Rusev down and the crowd rally around Kofi as he looks for an upset here. Slapping his hands together in time with the crowd, Kofi waits and waits … TROUBLE IN PARADISE! The crowd are delighted as Kofi connects with his preferred finishing move and makes the cover … 1 … 2 … 3! As the crowd celebrate though, the referee spots that Rusev’s foot was on the bottom rope and waves the 3 off to the dismay of the crowd. Replays show that Rusev had his foot on the rope well in advance of the call. Backing off and up to the top rope again, Kofi dives off towards Rusev as he looks to keep the momentum going … but Rusev catches him and adjusts him on his shoulders before hitting the Samoan Drop! The crowd groan at the sight but Rusev has no mercy and locks in his favoured submission hold … CAMEL CLUTCH! As Lana likes to say, ‘resistance is futile’ and so it proves here for Kingston who attempts to fight but is forced to tap out.
WINNER: Alexander Rusev (7:08)
As the bell rings and Rusev is declared the winner, the Bulgarian refuses to release the hold and the referee’s protests appear to have little effect. The referee’s anger is clear and he has to resort to counting down Rusev … 1 … 2 … 3 … 4 … Rusev releases a second away from the decision being reversed and stands over Kofi with his bare foot placed on his chest. In a sign of complete dominance, Rusev raises his arms as Lana applauds behind him. On the expert panel, we hear Josh Mathews ask for opinions on Alexander Rusev … “Scary” says Booker T, “Impressive” says RVD and “Dominant” says Ric Flair. That just about sums it up and as we look at Rusev exiting the ring, Mathews tells us to make sure we’re ready because we are moments away from the Extreme Rules PPV here in East Rutherford, New Jersey tonight. Can Daniel Bryan survive the night as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion? Or will a member of The Shield or Evolution take his title away from him and end his fairytale?

As Michael Cole welcomes the WWE Universe, watching live on PPV or on the WWE Network, the crowd here in New Jersey is going wild for the sixth annual Extreme Rules PPV. As the crowd cheer and wave their signs, Cole hypes up tonight’s main matches: a Steel Cage match between Bray Wyatt and John Cena, Daniel Bryan defending the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and, in order to determine which man will actually challenge Bryan, a 6 man Tag between the warring factions, Evolution and The Shield. With the crowd buzzing and the card now set, it’s time to kick off tonight’s PPV … and what a match we have to kick things off here tonight!

LINE IN THE SAND
EVOLUTION
Batista, Randy Orton & Triple H
with Stephanie McMahon


The cheers around the arena turn to boos as the reformed faction known as Evolution head out into the arena with smug, arrogant looks on their faces as they prepare to kick off tonight’s show here at Extreme Rules. With a slow, methodical pace, the trio – 31 WWE Championships to their collective names – head towards the ring ignoring the heat with knowing looks on their faces. Despite the slight dissension between them on SMACKDOWN two nights ago, Evolution are putting on a united front here and, should they win, one of them will head into tonight’s main event and the chance to challenge Daniel Bryan for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. As they approach the ring, Michael Cole hypes up the past accomplishments of Evolution a decade ago as a video begins showcasing their talents …



Once the video is complete, we see Evolution stood in the ring taunting the WWE Universe and looking super confident here tonight. We have Batista, the man who returned in early 2014 and won the Royal Rumble to headline WrestleMania, we have Randy Orton, the man who, until WrestleMania, was the WWE World Heavyweight Champion for six months and we have Triple H, the C.O.O. of the WWE and the husband of the Principal Owner. With Stephanie ringside exerting her influence, it is hard to see how Evolution can be beaten tonight unless, as Jerry Lawler suggests, they implode from within, each man desperate for the opportunity to challenge Daniel Bryan to close the show.

SPECIAL OPS
THE SHIELD
Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins


However, here come the three men intent on spoiling the return of Evolution here in the WWE, the self-proclaimed “Hounds of Justice” themselves, The Shield. With a great pop for their arrival from the WWE Universe, the three renegades, dressed all in black and sporting masks, come through the New Jersey crowd with a clear focus on the ring and the destruction of Evolution tonight. Despite their popularity, JBL points out that all three of these men are desperate to be WWE World Heavyweight Champion as well and he believes, with recent history of arguments in the ranks, the decision by HHH to make the winning fall decisive of who challenges Bryan later is a masterstroke. As JBL claims, The Shield will crumble from within. As Ambrose, Rollins and Reigns leap the barrier and surround the corner of the ring, they look up into the squared circle where Evolution are currently residing and then slide in to join them ramping up the tension in the arena. The unenviable task of officiating this match falls to Charles Robinson who clearly has his work cut out to keep order here tonight. However, he successfully backs both teams into opposite corners before signalling for the bell. Which team will emerge victorious here tonight? And which man will get the winning fall and proceed to challenge Daniel Bryan for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship later tonight?

Quote:
SIX MAN TAG MATCH:
EVOLUTION vs. THE SHIELD

As soon as the bell rings, Ambrose, Reigns and Rollins rip their masks aside, toss them away and rush the opposite corner where Evolution are surprised by the sudden attack. The crowd roar as The Shield barrage into Evolution and the fight is well and truly on here! In a sea of right hands, the “Hounds of Justice” gain the upper hand on their Evolution counterparts quickly and Batista, Orton and Hunter seek respite through covering up or rolling out of the ring at the first chance they get. As the brawl splits into three separate fights – Reigns with Batista, Rollins with Orton and Ambrose with Triple H – the referee is rushing around like a headless chicken trying to contain things and get some order in the match. However, his protests fall on deaf ears as the brawling continues as if he wasn’t there, The Shield have been desperate to get their hands on Evolution properly for weeks. At ringside, Dean Ambrose is dominating Triple H who attempts a dazed fightback but the former United States Champion repels this and whips The Game into the steel steps at ringside to the delight of the crowd. The two brutes of the teams, Roman Reigns and Batista, brawl up the ramp back towards the stage with Reigns slamming Batista shoulder first into the barricades as the WWE Universe encourage him. On the opposite side of the ring to Ambrose and HHH, Rollins and Orton are brawling but Rollins retains control of this fight as well when he clotheslines The Viper over the barricades and into the fans who are all over it.

As the camera men struggle to keep up with the fights that are spreading around the arena here, the referee looks confused about what he can do and he directs his protests to a worried looking Stephanie McMahon who is watching the fight between Ambrose and Triple H. The referee is becoming more and more exasperated and seems to be contemplating ending the match here as HHH counters Ambrose with a Back Body Drop on the floor. As the referee heads over to Lilian Garcia, the camera follows him and listens to him as he explains that he is electing to end the contest due to the two teams refusing to co-operate with his instructions. Unfortunately for him, the moment HHH fights back against Ambrose, Stephanie marches over and tells the referee to step away. A fierce look on her face, she demands that the referee get back out there and “do his damn job and count the falls” before turning and speaking to a shocked Lilian Garcia. Lilian picks up her microphone and, following the lead of Stephanie, makes an announcement …

LILIAN GARCIA:
Ladies and Gentlemen, I have just been informed by the Principal Owner of the WWE, Stephanie McMahon, that this match will now be contested as a “Falls Count Anywhere” … Hardcore … Tornado … Six-Man Tag Team match!

“FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE” HARDCORE TORNADO SIX-MAN TAG MATCH:
EVOLUTION vs. THE SHIELD

On commentary, Michael Cole is not impressed with this decision and accuses Stephanie of deliberately making that decision in the interests of her husband, the C.O.O. of the company, Triple H who is now fighting back against Dean Ambrose and taking control. The referee continues to protest to Stephanie that this is impossible but she points towards the brawl between her husband and Ambrose and again tells him to “do your job” as if that is easy. Throwing his arms up, the referee takes the only option he can and focuses on the battle nearest to the ring which, as Jerry Lawler points out, was probably Stephanie’s intention all along. JBL supports her and declares that this is why she is the Principal Owner, she is a genius! The cameras are switching between the ongoing battles and the control that The Shield had from the fast, sudden start is now lessening as Orton, Batista and HHH get back into their fights. Now on the stage, Reigns looks to whip Batista into the screens but The Animal is able to counter and he reverses Reigns who collides with the screens instead. Flickering once or twice, the screens then cut out with the impact of Reigns and Batista hits a heavy clothesline that crashes Reigns down on his back on the steel stage and gives him time to recover slightly from the beating he has taken at the hands of Reigns so far. In the crowd, fifty yards away from Batista and Reigns, Randy Orton and Seth Rollins’ fight continues and Rollins comes off the fifth step looking to connect with The Viper but he catches him in his arms and hits a snap powerslam on the concrete flooring to get himself back into the battle and buy himself some time as well. At ringside, Triple H, taking advantage of the Hardcore rules now established in the match thanks to his wife, has pulled a steel chair from under the ring and smashes it across the back of Dean Ambrose with a loud thwack …

With the referee concentrating on the ringside area, despite Stephanie’s declaration of “Falls Count Anywhere” earlier, it appears that the duo of Triple H and Dean Ambrose, whilst battling against each other for their represented teams, have individual advantage when it comes to securing the spot as challenger to Daniel Bryan later tonight. This is emphasised twice over the next few moments, first of all on the stage where Batista and Reigns are clashing. After launching a series of stiff kicks and stomps to the gut of Reigns, Batista’s advantage allows him to drag the unofficial leader of The Shield to his knees and positions his head between his legs. As the crowd realise what is coming, they rise to their feet in anticipation, Batista shows incredible strength to raise Reigns up in the air …

BATISTA BOMB!
BATISTA BOMB TO ROMAN REIGNS ON THE STEEL STAGE FLOOR!


As the crowd here in New Jersey respond with a “Holy sh*t!” chant, Batista quickly makes the cover on Reigns and hooks the legs expecting a referee to be nearby to count the fall. However, poor old Charles Robinson is stuck in the ring and has no chance of making the count from his position down there. Realising what has happened from the ‘tron, the official races around the ring and up the ramp to the stage where an irate Batista is screaming at him to make the count. Robinson falls to his knees, checks Reigns’ shoulders and makes the count – do we have a winner here?

No!

Somehow, Roman Reigns kicks out!


Batista is angry and protests vehemently at the referee but he holds his hands out as if asking Batista what exactly he thinks he could do differently? The cameras switch to the crowd brawl between Orton and Rollins which The Viper has control of right now as he delivers a series of right hands that are staggering Rollins back through the crowd. However, Rollins makes a desperate counter and kicks Orton hard in the ribcage before leaping onto the boards that usually surround the ice rink; he springboards off and towards Orton who repositions himself superbly …

RKO!
ORTON HITS ROLLINS WITH AN RKO OUT OF NOWHERE!


Just like Batista seconds before, Orton twists and grabs the leg of Rollins for the pinfall, surely academic he believes after the RKO on the concrete floor, he looks around in dismay though when the count doesn’t follow. Again, Charles Robinson realises and races around the technical area, past the security and into the crowd towards Orton as he covers Rollins. When he finally gets there, he slides to the concrete and begins the count …

No!

Rollins kicks out just in time!


Livid, Orton gets to his feet and throws a strop; he cannot believe what just transpired there even though we just saw the exact same thing happen to Batista as well. Orton looks towards the ring where Ambrose is being rolled inside by Triple H now, the C.O.O. of the company has taken control of that fight as well and Evolution are beginning to get on top in this one. Inside the ring goes The Game and he kicks a weak Ambrose hard in the gut before setting him up and preparing to strike …

PEDIGREE!
TRIPLE H HITS THE PEDIGREE ON AMBROSE!


With a self-satisfied smirk on his face, HHH makes the cover but again there is no referee to make the count to the anger of Stephanie McMahon. As Charles Robinson looks to get to the ring to make a count, HHH notices that The Animal, looking none too happy, is heading into the ring as well and he gets to his feet and we have a sign of some tension in the air again here. Once Orton rolls back into the ring as well, all three members of Evolution look frustrated with each other and, as Michael Cole references, we are reminded of SMACKDOWN when all three men declared that they would be leaving the Extreme Rules PPV as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion tonight. With only one way to do that, getting the decisive fall in this match and then progressing to defeat Daniel Bryan later, all three men are essentially in competition with each other and it is clear that both Batista and Randy Orton believe that Stephanie McMahon’s recent announcement was more about giving Triple H the best chance here tonight than anything else. The crowd are urging the three of them to fight but Hunter takes charge of the situation and speaks to both men in no uncertain terms about tonight being about what is “best for business” … Evolution beating The Shield and Daniel Bryan no longer being the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. The Game appears to have smoothed things over – for now suggests King on commentary – and the Evolution trio now look down at Dean Ambrose who is scrambling to his knees after the Pedigree. Smirks appear on the faces of Evolution and the beatdown on Ambrose looks set to begin. As Orton and Batista lay the boots to Ambrose, Triple H exits the ring and picks up the steel chair once more which he tosses inside as well as sliding a table and a Kendo stick in as well. When Orton hits his trademark Hangman DDT to Ambrose, things are looking incredibly bleak for The Shield; how much can Ambrose take? Batista now begins using the Kendo stick and he smashes it across the back of Ambrose several times as the crowd groan with each shot. HHH sets up the table and this is getting more brutal by the second but Stephanie McMahon, watching on outside the ring, loves what she is seeing.

Inevitably, the table has been set up for a reason, the only question is how Evolution are planning to put Ambrose through it. In the end, Orton drags him to his knees, slapping him across the face and talking smack, before he feeds him to Batista. Ominously, Batista does the “Thumbs down” taunt to the crowd and the intention becomes clear. Up goes Ambrose …

BATISTA BOMB!
AMBROSE IS BOMBED THROUGH THE TABLE BY THE ANIMAL!


There is no way that Ambrose can survive much more of this and the referee is checking him for signs that he is still conscious; Batista has other ideas though. Shoving the referee roughly aside, Batista drags Ambrose from the wreckage of the table and thankfully makes the cover …

No!

Orton drags Batista off Ambrose!


The crowd love this development; Orton wants to be the man who gets the deciding fall here tonight and he is not going to let Batista have the victory and take his opportunity. Immediately, Batista leaps up and gets right in the face of The Viper and the tension ramps up another level. How on earth can Evolution co-exist here when each man is out for his own individual gains? Frustrated, Batista shoves Orton in the chest and it is Triple H who steps in front of Orton before he can deliver a right hand to The Animal. Trying to be peacekeeper, ironically after the earlier incident, HHH ushers Orton out of the ring where the argument with Batista continues without as much chance of physical altercation. However, Batista is not willing to let it drop and as soon as Orton and HHH are outside the ring, he comes off the ropes and smashes Ambrose with a boot to the face as he raises himself off the canvas before dropping down and hooking the leg once more.

No!

Orton interrupts the count again and drags Batista out of the ring!


For the second time, Randy Orton has cost Batista a shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and you suspect things are about to implode here tonight for Evolution who cannot get on the same page. As the two men who initially were meant to meet in the WrestleMania 30 main event go face to face, there are cheers all of a sudden around the arena. Seth Rollins is back in the ring! He rushes over the ring and flings himself up and over the top rope … SUICIDE DIVE! Rollins collides with Orton and Batista as they argue and knock them both down hard into the Spanish announce table; however, he did not connect with Triple H and Stephanie is quick to point out the opportunity. With Ambrose having rolled out of the ring, Hunter rounds the corner as Stephanie screams at the referee to get over and make the count. He pounces on Ambrose and hooks his leg …

No!

Ambrose somehow finds the guts to kick out at 2!


Frustrated, Triple H gets quickly up to deliver some more suffering to Ambrose whilst he has the chance to but …

SPEAR!
ROMAN REIGNS SPEARS HHH THROUGH THE BARRIERS!


Crashing through the barricades and into the timekeeper area, Reigns and HHH land in a mangled heap at the feet of people like Lilian Garcia and Justin Roberts as the crowd go ape-shit at what they are seeing here tonight in the opening match of Extreme Rules. “This is awesome!” echoes around the arena for a few moments as the cameras focus on the carnage already strewn over the ring; a broken table, Kendo sticks, steel chairs, the barricades smashed to bits and one of the stage screens being fixed as we speak. And who are getting to their feet with the advantage once more? The Shield, the “Hounds of Justice” after suffering a beatdown of a lifetime so far, they are up and ready to take Evolution down here tonight. As Reigns and Rollins join the clearly hurt Ambrose, a knowing look passes over their faces and they nod their heads and snarl before Reigns grabs Orton and tosses him into the ring. As Ambrose and Rollins lay the boots to Orton, Reigns grabs the steel chair and crashes it down over the back of Batista for good measure before joining his team-mates in the ring. Taking advantage of the hardcore ruling announced early on in the match, Orton is given a beating from hell before he is lifted up high …

TRIPLE POWERBOMB!
THE SHIELD SMASH ORTON DOWN INTO THE MAT!


With Orton writhing in pain and coughing and spluttering, Rollins rolls out of the ring and grabs Batista as he tries to crawl away to safety. Giving him no time for recovery, Rollins hits an Enzuguri kick to the back of The Animal’s head and then rolls him into the ring where Ambrose is intent on some revenge for the Batista Bomb through the table. He rams Batista’s head into the turnbuckles several times before stepping back and waiting …

DIRTY DEEDS!
AMBROSE TAKES BATISTA DOWN WITH THE HEADLOCK DRIVER!


Immediately though, Seth Rollins drags The Animal off the mat and shoves him, stumbling, right into the path of Roman Reigns …

SPEAR!
HOW IRONIC? BATISTA TAKEN DOWN BY A SPEAR FROM REIGNS!


Clutching his stomach, Batista rolls out of the ring and drops to the floor – joining Orton outside the ring – but Triple H’s time outside the ring is up as Ambrose, ordering Stephanie out of the way, drags The Game and throws him into the ring. Following him in, Ambrose joins Rollins and Reigns in looking down on the C.O.O. with a salivating look in their eyes as they prepare to take down the head of the Authority right here. With no sign of Orton or Batista resurfacing, things look bleak for HHH and they prove to be as The Shield, to the delight of the crowd, give him the beating of a lifetime. Chairs, Kendo sticks and then the coup de grace, Reigns shoves the bottom half of a set of ring steps into the ring and the crowd buzz with anticipation; what does The Shield have in mind for HHH here? It soon becomes clear as Triple H is fed into the arms of Rollins and Ambrose by Reigns and then he positions the steel steps …

TRIPLE POWERBOMB!
TRIPLE H IS TRIPLE POWERBOMBED ON THE STEEL RING STEPS!


“Holy sh*t!” echoes around the arena, The Shield are showing how extreme they are willing to be to stick it to Evolution here tonight whilst it appears that, contrary to HHH’s belief, the distraction of the chance to face Daniel Bryan at the close of tonight’s PPV is not that important to them here in New Jersey. With all three members of Evolution down and out, one of the three members of The Shield could pick up an easy victory though and it is this moment that the three of them do something completely unexpected – Rock, Paper, Scissors! A light-hearted moment during an epic battle so far, the first attempt ends with all three men using different symbols and therefore ends in a draw. Grins on all three faces, they set for a second attempt but this is the moment that Stephanie McMahon chooses to get in the ring and end that charade. Stepping up to The Shield, showing incredible guts it has to be said, the Principal Owner slams them for their arrogance and tells them that they should be “down on your knees grovelling to each other for the chance to challenge for my companies prestigious title!” The Shield are amused and Ambrose fixes Steph with a disturbing look as if he is measuring her up or something. As Stephanie retreats to the corner, The Shield surround her but here come Evolution once more. Having had a little time to recover, Batista and Orton are there first, stumbling a little, they rescue Stephanie by dragging Ambrose and Reigns away. As punches are traded, Rollins notices Triple H coming dragging himself up and we have branched into three individual fights once again as Stephanie wisely gets out of the ring to some sort of safety.

With Triple H and Seth Rollins fighting outside the ring on one side and Batista and Roman Reigns trading blows on the ramp side, we’re left with Dean Ambrose and Randy Orton in the ring and Charles Robinson again trying to split himself three ways as he tries to keep an eye on what is happening; after all, this is still a Tornado Tag match and is still “Falls Count Anywhere” so things could end any moment. With their recent attacks still having an effect on Evolution, The Shield maintain the upper hand and both Batista and HHH are slammed hard into the barricades surrounding the ringside area once more. However, their attention turns to the ring as Ambrose does something they did not expect to see. With Orton down on his knees, Ambrose grabs Orton and delivers a snap DDT that drives The Viper’s head down into the canvas hard and he then rolls over and makes the pinfall.

Orton kicks out as Ambrose notices Rollins and Reigns’ looking at him!


For the first time tonight, we have a little dissension, at last, between members of The Shield as Ambrose looks to quickly put Orton away in the ring whilst Rollins and Reigns were out of the way. He claims that it was a force of habit and nothing sinister but the argument building is averted when Evolution, fighting back to their credit, catch them by surprise off the distraction. Batista throws Rollins forward into the ring post, he cracks into it shoulder first, whilst HHH pummels Reigns and then hits a Spinebuster on the outside of the ring which buys him some recovery time. With Ambrose looking on, Orton tries to take advantage of the distraction further as he rolls up Ambrose from behind …

1

No!

Dean Ambrose kicks out again!


It’s hardly news now that Evolution’s members are trying desperately to get the win for themselves as much as, if not more so, for their team and Orton’s attempted roll up is old news. Orton goes to work on Ambrose now inside the ring and hits a snap powerslam off the ropes before stomping the limbs of Ambrose methodically – whilst Orton’s style is methodical and measured though, you wonder if that is going to help him here tonight when a quick pinfall is what he needs. On the outside, HHH looks to continue his attack on Reigns but is countered with a Superman Punch which gets the crowd on their feet behind Reigns once again! Batista swings wildly at him but Reigns ducks it … Superman Punch to Batista as well! Sliding into the ring, Reigns targets Orton now and rushes him looking for a Spear but The Viper dodges it and sends him hurtling face first into the turnbuckles in the corner instead. Looking pleased with himself, Orton closes in on Reigns and pounds the mat with his fists in preparation … However, once Reigns spins round, Orton goes for the RKO but is shoved away … Superman Punch to Orton! Reigns has cleaned house and the three members of The Shield congregate together in the ring once more looking around them for their next target; Batista staggers up outside the ring and props himself against the announce desk and that is all the invitation needed for the crazy S.O.B. that is Seth Rollins. He hits the ropes and thunders across the ring … SUICIDE DIVE … but Batista moves aside and Rollins eats the announce table head first with a crunch. There is concern amongst the announce team for Rollins and King speculates that he might have lost a tooth on impact there; there is concern as well from Roman Reigns who heads out of the ring to check on his fallen comrade. In contrast, Dean Ambrose spots the opportunity again and drags a wounded Triple H up as he rolls back into the ring and then smashes him with three steel chair shots to the back before quickly looking for the pin …

No!

HHH kicks out like the warrior that he is!


For Ambrose though, that could have been a costly mistake as Roman Reigns comes back into the ring with a face like thunder as he points at HHH and asks what the hell Ambrose was thinking there? This time, Ambrose cannot pass it off as instinct, that was cold and calculated and Reigns is angry over what his buddy just did. As the tension now builds in The Shield, Orton and Batista slide back into the ring behind them and surprise them; Orton clotheslines Ambrose over the top rope whilst Batista stomps a hole in the gut of Reigns in the corner. All six men are battered and bruised now but four of them, for now, continue to fight with just Triple H and Seth Rollins currently out of action. On the outside of the ring, Ambrose has the upper hand on Orton until a calculated and downright disgusting low blow kick from the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion. As the crowd boo Orton’s actions, he looks as if he could not care less …

RKO!
RANDY ORTON HITS DEAN AMBROSE WITH AN RKO!


Orton looks to make the cover but the ferocity of the Batista and Reigns fight in the ring means the referee does not see this; he is preoccupied with trying to exert some form of control over the two monsters close to him! Batista whips Reigns to the corner as Orton, taking a breather, watches from the outside. The Animal has found a second wind and he crashes into Reigns in the corner with a heavy hitting clothesline and then spins round to whip him to the ropes … SPINEBUSTER! Batista is on fire here and, if it wasn’t for Orton watching from ringside, you’d be thinking that Batista was set for victory. As Reigns pulls himself up with the ropes, Batista is setting himself and it looks as if we’re going to see Reigns get a taste of his own medicine with a Spear from Batista! As Reigns spins around, Batista roars out and charges at him but misses and collides with the corner …

SPEAR!
REIGNS WITH A SPEAR TO BATISTA!


Quick as a flash, Randy Orton hits the ring though and charges into the back of Roman Reigns; unfortunately for Orton, the monster inside Reigns is waking now and he looks unstoppable as he ducks a clothesline and responds … SAMOAN DROP! The crowd are on their feet as they will Reigns on to victory here tonight …

SPEAR!
ANOTHER SPEAR FROM REIGNS BUT THIS TIME TO RANDY ORTON!


The crowd are going wild, Reigns has hit a pair of decisive Spears and he drops down on Orton and hooks the leg for the victory …

WAIT A MINUTE!

SLEDGEHAMMER TO THE HEAD OF REIGNS!
TRIPLE H STRIKES WITH A SLEDGEHAMMER SHOT TO ROMAN REIGNS!


Boos echo around the arena as Triple H scrambles into the ring just in time to save the match for Evolution and more importantly himself. The sledgehammer shot appears to have knocked Reigns out cold and HHH drags his lifeless body away from Orton … Triple H is the only man moving as he hooks the leg of the big Samoan …

WINNERS: Evolution (22:42)

Triple H proceeds to challenge Daniel Bryan for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship later tonight.
What an incredible way to begin the Extreme Rules PPV tonight, an absolute war between Evolution and The Shield … including civil war in amongst the two factions as well! Victorious but battered and bruised, The Game retreats from the ring after getting the 3 count on Reigns and staggers backwards up the ramp where he falls down on his backside. Joined by Stephanie, HHH raises his hand in victory and then signals to the watching crowd that he will be the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion later tonight. As the crowd jeer this, Stephanie flashes an evil grin and mocks Daniel Bryan with a slow, taunting “Yes!” chant of her own. As the crowd respond with a “No!” chant, the camera flashes on the other five participants in the match. Rollins remains in a crumpled heap in front of the announce desk with EMT’s tending to him whilst his partner Dean Ambrose is struggling to his knees at the foot of the ramp after being hit with the RKO. Roman Reigns is also being treated to medical help after the sledgehammer shot he took to his head, he is conscious but looks incredibly groggy. However, the big story here in the two other Evolution members who are both stood in the ring looking out towards the stage area where Triple H is stood with Stephanie. The pair of them look intense as they stare a hole through the #1 contender for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship of Daniel Bryan; could there be problems still to navigate for Triple H ahead of his title opportunity in tonight’s main event?

Backstage, Renee Young welcomes her guests – Cesaro and his manager, Paul Heyman. Renee asks Heyman for his thoughts tonight on Cesaro putting himself in danger by participating in the “Real American” Street Fight with Jack Swagger. As Cesaro smirks at the question, Heyman moves closer and has an answer.

PAUL HEYMAN:
Renee, Renee, Renee, think about who you’re talking to here. Do you honestly believe that I, Paul Heyman, the greatest manager that the WWE has ever seen, would put my client in superfluous danger? Think about it, I am the man who just last month instigated the end of the greatest Streak ever seen in the history of Sports Entertainment, I am the man who steered my client … Brrrrrrrrrock Lesnar … to victory against The Phenom himself in The Undertaker. In the past, Renee, I took some risks in this business but nowadays I am prudent, I am more calculated and I take care of my clients better than any other manager that the WWE has ever seen. My newest client, the Swiss Superstar, the “King of Swing” himself, Cesaro, understands this better than anybody else here in this building tonight. You see, Cesaro recognises that every single decision I make on his behalf has his career and his future status as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion in mind. Since WrestleMania 30, Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter have held on to Cesaro’s coat-tails for dear life, they know their association with him benefits them, but tonight, that all comes to an end. Just like when I led Brock Lesnar to the WWE Championship, just like I led Brock Lesnar to break The Undertaker’s undefeated WrestleMania streak, just like when I led CM Punk to the longest WWE Championship reign of the last quarter of a century, Cesaro knows that I will lead him to the Promised Land. Tonight, Cesaro battles in an ugly, dirty war with Jack Swagger but by the end of the night, the ties that bind them will be shredded forever; Cesaro’s journey to the upper echelons of the WWE begin here tonight in New Jersey. So, Renee, tonight, it is not Cesaro in peril … That danger is reserved for Jack … Swagger.

With a smile, Heyman steps back and Cesaro nods his head in agreement before they make their way out of shot and Renee thanks them for their time here tonight. Back in the ring, the bell rings and Justin Roberts announces that the next match will be for the Intercontinental Championship …

“God save our Queen”
REBEL SON
BAD NEWS BARRETT


Although he is the heel in this contest here tonight, Barrett gets a mixed reaction from the crowd; there are clearly some Barrett followers in the arena tonight as he makes his way out onto the stage. As the Englishman throws his cloak up in the air and begins a determined but cocky walk towards the ring, Michael Cole reminds us of the way Barrett earned this title opportunity over the past few weeks on Monday Night RAW in the tournament to determine the #1 contender for the Intercontinental Championship. Replays of the endings in his Quarter Final match with Dolph Ziggler, his Semi Final with Sheamus and the Final victory over Rob Van Dam are shown and JBL says he has some “bad news” for Big E – Barrett is here tonight intent on striking with the Bullhammer Elbow and becoming the new Intercontinental Champion.

THREE AIN’T ENOUGH
BIG E
WWE Intercontinental Champion


With the Intercontinental Championship over his shoulder, Big E makes his way out into the arena to a decent reception from the crowd. As he walks down to the ring looking focused, his words from an interview earlier tonight before the show are played in the corner of the TV screen …

Quote:
Earlier tonight:

BIG E:
Tonight, I go out there and defend my Intercontinental Championship against Bad News Barrett. Now, I’m not gonna’ take anything away from Barrett, he has been impressive as hell since he returned to the ring after WrestleMania. But while he beat Ziggler, Sheamus and Rob Van Dam with that Bullhammer Elbow, tonight, that don’t come into play, man. By the end of the night, there’ll be “bad news” for Barrett when he gets laid out … with a Big Ending.
As Big E raises the Intercontinental Championship up high, Barrett looks up at it and nods his head in quiet determination; he clearly believes that he is going to walk out of the arena with that title in his hands tonight. However, Big E looks confident of retaining the title as well – as King points out, something’s going to have to give here.

WWE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP
BIG E © vs. BAD NEWS BARRETT
The match starts with the two men talking trash in the centre of the ring, mainly Barrett, he jabs the Intercontinental Champion in the ribs several times though and this causes Big E to snap. As Big E pounds away at Barrett and forces him back to the corner, the crowd get behind him as he uses his power to get off to a fast start. When Barrett is whipped across the ring, Big E follows up looking to ram his shoulder into his gut but Bad News avoids it and goes for a Big Boot; Langston catches the foot of his challenger though and then spins him into a huge clothesline and Barrett takes refuge outside the ring to recover from E’s fast start here. Ignoring the referee, Barrett takes his time on the outside before heading back in once Big E has been forced to retreat. The pair lock up and again Big E’s power shows until a sneaky right hand from Barrett turns the tide and gives him an opening into the contest. Flinging Big E into the corner, Barrett showers him with big rights before whipping him across the ring. As Big E bounces out of the corner, Barrett connects with a Big Boot that leaves Big E down and out on the mat but it only garners a 2 count for the challenger. However, the control is now with Barrett and he makes the most of it as he looks to harm the champion and gain some advantage. A backbreaker leaves Big E writhing in pain but again it is only enough for a 2 count whilst a clothesline over the top rope does Barrett little good with the fact he has to pin or submit Big E inside the ring to become Intercontinental Champion here tonight.

Dragging Big E back through the ropes, Barrett whips him across the ring and into the ropes once more. Unfortunately for Barrett, his swinging clothesline misses when Big E ducks it and then, showing surprising agility, Big E leaps Barrett as well before hitting a shoulder tackle. A series of these tackles, known as the E-Train, follow and then Big E throws Barrett over his head with a belly-to-belly suplex but he is only able to get a 2 from this as he looks to successfully defend his title. As Barrett staggers to the corner, Big E thrusts his shoulder into Barrett’s gut over and over before whipping him across the ring and hitting a big splash against the turnbuckles. Connecting with the crowd, Big E pounds his chest and appears to be getting on top here as he prepares for another splash in the corner … this time, Barrett moves aside and the champion collides chest first with the corner buckles before walking into Barrett’s Winds of Change side slam that shakes the ring. Barrett hooks the leg but again only gets a 2 before he pounds the mat showing a little frustration. Sensing his chance though, Barrett drags Big E up and lifts him to his shoulders, he is setting up for Wastelands but Big E wriggles clear of it luckily for him. As Barrett spins and runs at him again, Big E uses the challenger’s momentum to lift him high and then let him drop eight feet back down with a crash. As Barrett staggers up, Big E lifts him and drops him over his knee multiple times, rib breakers over and over, before spinning him round and hitting another belly-to-belly suplex. However, he only gets a 2 again as we head into the decisive part of the match.

Considering how even the match has panned out so far, Big E’s control at this moment is a novelty and he has time to set himself and wait for Barrett to get to his feet. When Barrett throws a desperate clothesline, Big E ducks it and lifts him onto his shoulder looking for the Big Ending. However, Barrett fights out and shoves Big E away. As Big E spins, Barrett looks for a Big Boot but the champion ducks it and comes off the ropes to hit another E-Train shoulder tackle. Again, Big E looks to lift Barrett to his shoulders for the Big Ending but again he fails, Barrett is showing resilience here as he refuses to be beaten. As Big E turns, Barrett hits a Spinebuster to buy himself some time and then comes off the middle buckle to hit a Diving Elbow to the heart of his opponent. Feeling a rush of confidence, Barrett turns his arm pad inside out so the red side is showing and then begins winding up his elbow, screaming at Big E to “Get up!” as he prepares to strike. Big E spins up into his path and Barrett flings his elbow at him but the Intercontinental Champion drops down under Barrett to avoid it. Barrett, confused by Big E avoiding him, spins back round …

BIG ENDING!
BIG E HITS THE BIG ENDING ON BAD NEWS BARRETT!


The crowd are cheering and begin the count as Big E hooks the leg …

No!

Barrett reaches out with his arm and grabs the bottom rope in the nick of time!


Big E cannot believe it and asks the referee for confirmation before shaking his head in disbelief; he was not expecting Barrett to survive that. However, with the crowd still behind him, Big E pulls down his strap and shows he is serious as he prepares to strike a second time. Barrett stumbles up and Big E lifts him high on his shoulder again … but Barrett wriggles free once more …

BULLHAMMER ELBOW!
BARRETT SMASHES HIS ELBOW INTO THE FACE OF BIG E!


Do we have a new Intercontinental Champion here? Barrett collapses on Big E and the referee makes the count …

WINNER: Bad News Barrett (8:36)

Bad News Barrett is the NEW WWE Intercontinental Champion!
BOOM! New Intercontinental Champion, Bad News Barrett hits the Bullhammer Elbow and continues his winning streak since he returned to in-ring action after the conclusion of WrestleMania 30 on RAW. As Big E rolls out of the ring and holds his head in his hands, Barrett is handed the Intercontinental Championship belt and he leaps onto the ropes to hold it high and rub it in to the WWE Universe. Looking immensely pleased with himself, Barrett celebrates in the opposite corner as well as Michael Cole, JBL and Jerry Lawler give him credit; a clean win here at Extreme Rules where Barrett was simply the better man on the night. As the camera focuses on Barrett standing tall, it then switches to the backstage area where Stephanie McMahon, huge smile on her face, is speaking on her phone to somebody and asking them if they saw it, clearly referring to the opening match tonight where Triple H and Evolution defeated The Shield.

However, she quickly ends the call when she notices somebody heading into her office. As the camera pans out, we see Randy Orton and Batista, both looking angered walking towards her. Stephanie’s face hardens at the sight of the two Authority/Evolution members looking daggers at her.

RANDY ORTON:
Stephanie, I am in no mood for games, tell me where Hunter is now!

BATISTA:
You better tell us where he is because if we find him ourselves …

Stephanie looks angry at the tone being used by Orton and Batista and stops them by raising her hand and interrupting them both.

STEPHANIE McMAHON:
Gentlemen, may I remind you who you are currently speaking to right now? You would do well to remember that before you do something or say something that you may later regret. Considering the way you are speaking right now, I feel it would not be in your best interests to tell you where Hunter is currently; I’m looking out for the two of you.

Batista looks agitated and Stephanie’s words have little effect on him by the looks of it.

BATISTA:
You would do well to remember exactly who you are speaking to as well, Steph. Don’t forget that I am not like other so-called superstars here in the WWE, I can get up and walk out of here at the drop of a dime if I choose to. When I came back to the WWE, my contract stated that I would be given a shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and then Hunter pulls a stunt like that tonight?

RANDY ORTON:
Hold up a second, Dave, I was the man who lost the WWE World Heavyweight Championship back at WrestleMania 30 without actually being pinned or tapping out. If anybody deserved to go on and face Daniel Bryan tonight, it was me.

Stephanie glares at both men for having the audacity to argue back at her and lets out an exasperated gasp.

STEPHANIE McMAHON:
Can you two hear yourselves? In here, whining and complaining about the fact that, once again, just like WrestleMania, you couldn’t get the job done. It was your lack of competency that got Hunter involved in all this in the first place, remember? If you two had done your job at WrestleMania 30, if you had simply stopped Daniel Bryan from being the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, regardless of who won the match, then tonight would never have had to happen. We could be sat here tonight looking forward to Randy Orton vs. Batista for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship but you failed, gentlemen, you failed. You got Hunter involved, you caused The Shield to get involved and now you have the nerve to complain about the fact that Hunter won tonight? He was doing what you two couldn’t do, he was taking charge and sorting out your mess and you dare to barge into my office tonight and demand answers from him?

Orton and Batista’s rage appears to have subsided a little, it appears Stephanie’s words are striking a nerve with them.

STEPHANIE McMAHON:
Now, I am going to say it one more time. Go away and compose yourselves, take a shower and wait. Hunter will come and find you later and speak to you both. Remember what the big picture is, tonight. It isn’t about Triple H being the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, it isn’t about Batista or Randy Orton being the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. It is about stopping The Shield and defeating Daniel Bryan. One job down, gentlemen, one to go.

Stephanie fixes the pair of them with a determined look that ends the conversation. As Batista and Orton retreat, she continues to stare after them as the camera focuses on her before switching to Renee Young once again as she waits in the interview pit once more. She introduces the new United States Champion, the man who benefitted from The Shield’s problems with Evolution and The Authority when he captured the US Championship from Dean Ambrose on RAW. However, despite thinking he was “part” of the Authority after this, Miz was left to suffer the wrath of The Shield on RAW last week and told in no uncertain terms that he was not in the inner circle. Renee asks Miz for his thoughts about his beatdown from The Shield and Stephanie’s stinging words of rejection last week as he stands in his suit with the US Championship over his shoulder.

THE MIZ:
Really, Renee? Really? That’s the best question that you could come up with tonight? You’ve had the whole of the last match to prepare a question tonight and that is the result of 15 minutes thinking time?

Embarrassed, Renee stands her ground but is clearly unimpressed with Miz’ words of criticism.

THE MIZ:
It’s true, Renee, I’ve had an up and down couple of weeks here, I got a beatdown from The Shield thanks to the low down actions of the New Age Outlaws and I had Stephanie McMahon tell me that I was nothing to the Authority but you know what? It was worth it because I have got my hands on this, the United States Championship. Once again, I have gold around my waist and I can declare myself the most must-see United States Champion of all time. For the last year, Dean Ambrose has run away from challenges and hidden behind Rollins and Reigns and brought disgrace to this title. But I am going to change all that, I am going to be the man whose name becomes synonymous with this title. I did it once before and I will do it once again. You see I don’t care who wants a shot at me, I don’t care, I will be right in their faces and ready to go whenever, wherever they want to …

Miz suddenly stops as he comes face to face with … BIG SHOW! Grinning, Big Show looks down at Miz whose face is a picture; is he regretting what he just said? Big Show straightens Miz’ tie and then pats him on the shoulder.

BIG SHOW:
If it isn’t my old buddy, The Miz, stood here with his new United States Championship and telling the world that he will face anybody, any place, any time. I wonder Miz, are those just words? Or do you really mean them? I mean, if you really do mean them, how about I go out to the ring right now and you come out and join me there and we can put your theory to the test? What do you say?

As Big Show waits for an answer, Miz decides to back off away from him instead. Shaking his head, Miz walks away leaving the Big Show looking unsurprised but slightly disappointed.

BIG SHOW:
I guess when he says anybody, any place, any time, Renee, he doesn’t mean 7 foot giants …

Show smirks and winks at Renee before backing off and the cameras switch back to the ringside area where JBL and Jerry Lawler laugh in amusement at the way Big Show scared Miz off just then; Lawler declares that some things never change where the Miz is concerned.

PATRIOT
JACK SWAGGER
with Zeb Colter


Boos for the arrival of Jack Swagger, the former World Champion of course, he is accompanied by his manager Zeb Colter and JBL is delighted at his arrival. As Swagger and Colter perform their “We the people!” taunt, JBL says there has been a lot made of Paul Heyman being the greatest manager in WWE history of late but people seem to forget the current run of Zeb Colter and how he turned around the careers of Swagger and Cesaro. Unfortunately, Colter has a microphone and he seems intent on speaking up here tonight.

ZEB COLTER:
People of America, I would like a moment to speak to you all here tonight. You see, I have some disturbing and quite frankly disgusting news for you. Knowing that tonight I would be coming out here in front of all of you New Jersey people, I did a little research and found out that there are over half a million illegal immigrants here in the state of New Jersey. Half a million people who have crossed illegally into our great nation, half a million people who are costing you and I our hard-earned tax dollars. Did you know that the estimated cost of these illegal immigrant in the New Jersey state alone is over 2 billion dollars? Yet tonight, when a “Real American” Jack Swagger heads out here at Extreme Rules ready to fight a man from Switzerland, ready to fight for the honour of this proud nation, you people are ready to cheer for him? We gave Cesaro his chance to be a “Real American” and a chance to fight the good fight alongside us but at WrestleMania, Cesaro made the decision to change his allegiances. And you people support him and cheer for him, just like you support the fact that this state has so many illegal immigrants here stealing jobs and healthcare. Quite frankly, New Jersey, that upsets me and I implore you all to change your allegiances tonight and support the only man in this fight that is dedicated to the red, white and blue of this once great nation. So, please rise up and place your hand over your chest and say with me, in a loud, clear voice … WE, THE PEOPLE!

Strong words from Zeb tonight as he accompanies Swagger to the ring, the pair of them stand in the ring awaiting the arrival of their former “Real American” partner …

SUPERHUMAN
CESARO
with Paul Heyman


New entrance theme tonight for Cesaro as he makes his way out, smiling, with Heyman by his side. Shaking his head at the comments he just heard from his former manager, the “King of Swing” makes his way towards the ring intent on victory here tonight in the “Real American” Street Fight. At this point, JBL questions what makes a Street Fight a “Real American” one and neither Cole nor Lawler have an answer it seems; it just is! However, as the bell is about to ring, Heyman interrupts as he gets hold of a microphone himself and answers the question.

PAUL HEYMAN:
Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman … and I know you’re all ready to see Jack Swagger and Cesaro go up against each other here tonight but I feel there is something I need to advise you all about. You see, when I made the challenge to Mr. Swagger and Mr. Colter here on RAW last Monday, the challenge was for a “Real American” Street Fight, not just a simple Street Fight. Whilst you two gentlemen may not have thought to ask what was meant by a “Real American” Street Fight, I think now would be an excellent time for me to inform you otherwise I am sure we will never hear the end of the moaning and whining.

A laugh goes up around the arena as Heyman insults Swagger and Colter …

PAUL HEYMAN:
Now, a “Real American” Street Fight is nice and simple, really. Yes, it is a Street Fight but there is a twist. Whilst the action tonight can spill all over the arena like any normal good ol’ fashioned Street Fight, the aim is not simply to pin your opponent or make them submit. The aim is simple – incapacitate them enough to pin them or make them tap out … and then get back home to the ring. If you are pinned or submit, then you have 1 minute, 60 seconds, to get back to the ring otherwise you are defeated. I just thought I’d better let you know.

As Heyman smirks, Swagger and Colter, after looking angry at not knowing in the first place, whisper to each other, clearly discussing tactics and how this changes things. The referee signals for the bell and orders Heyman and Colter to leave the ring and we are underway between these two former partners.

Quote:
“REAL AMERICAN” STREET FIGHT
CESARO (w/Paul Heyman) vs. JACK SWAGGER (w/Zeb Colter)
As the two men step towards each other, Swagger is talking trash to Cesaro and demanding that he get out of the ring and go home to Switzerland whilst Cesaro smirks, unimpressed, in his face. Eventually, Swagger, angered by Cesaro’s smirk, slaps his former partner around the face and this gets things going as Cesaro responds with a shove. The pair of them begin to exchange right hands, back and forth, Cesaro gets on top as he forces Swagger back but the Real American ducks a shot and hits a chop block to the back of Cesaro’s knee. Immediately attacking Cesaro’s knee, Swagger’s game plan is clear – injure it, lock on the Patriot Lock and leave Cesaro unable to get back to the ring. Stomping at the knee, Swagger gets the early advantage as Colter barks orders out at him. When the action spills out to the outside of the ring, Swagger makes the first use of the fact that there are no rules as he bends Cesaro’s knee and drops him down with an Atomic Drop over the ringsteps and within a minute of the match starting, Swagger has hurt the knee of the Swiss. As Cesaro hobbles away, Swagger hits a running forearm to the back of his head and stands over him at the foot of the ramp looking pleased.

However, as Swagger so often does, he wastes too much time taunting and Cesaro is able to drive him back into the edge of the mat before hitting several European uppercuts to a standing Swagger. Swagger responds by whipping him into the barricades and Michael Cole suggests on commentary that Cesaro’s wrestling style might mean that he is at a disadvantage with the rules favouring the power of Swagger. As Colter demands that Swagger “punish him” here, Cesaro is hit with a belly to belly suplex on the outside and Swagger, for the first time, goes for a cover on the outside of the ring.

No!

Kick out from Cesaro!


Stomps to the knee of Cesaro follow from Swagger and then, deviating from his normal style, he looks under the ring and pulls out a steel chair. There is a fire in Swagger’s eyes that we saw on SMACKDOWN on Friday when he defeated Big Show and now is apparent again as he looks to prove Cesaro wrong for walking out on their team. Using the steel chair, Swagger pounds the right knee of Cesaro and JBL claims that this is a rock-solid game plan here from Swagger; so much so that Heyman looks decidedly worried as he watches on. Wrapping Cesaro’s ankle in the steel chair, Swagger uses his foot to apply further pressure to the injured leg and Cesaro screams in pain. Jack Swagger is being ruthless here as he is perfectly setting things up. He rips the chair back off the leg of Cesaro and smashes it down several times again to further weaken him, a perfect show from Swagger so far. Finally, Swagger is ready and he grabs the leg of his former partner and looks for the Patriot Lock … However, Cesaro shows guts and rolls over. He counters by kicking Swagger away and then hobbling to his feet, Swagger rushes him but Cesaro takes him down …BAM! Swagger goes shoulder first into the steel steps as well! Both men are already starting to feel the pain here but Cesaro has come back from the brink a little it seems. As Swagger rolls into the ring to create some space, Heyman speaks to Cesaro and we have a few moments to take in what we’ve seen so far.

As Swagger gets a breather, Colter is barking at him once more and demanding that Jack go after Cesaro and punish him some more. Wound up, Swagger steps through the ropes and runs along the apron to deliver a stiff Big Boot to the face of Cesaro. The crowd jeer him but Swagger has executed his game plan almost perfectly so far and he looks increasingly confident here. He steps back and sets again for a second Big Boot as he waits for Cesaro to get up. He rushes over at the Swiss but Cesaro steps aside; angry, Swagger spins and rushes back and Cesaro counters …

A VERY EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!
UP GOES SWAGGER AND DOWN HE COMES WITH THE UPPERCUT!


Out of nowhere, Cesaro has struck and he looks possessed here as he twists at his head and sets up on the outside of the ring. He grabs Swagger and lifts him up …

NEUTRALIZER!
CESARO HITS THE NEUTRALIZER ON SWAGGER!


The crowd cheer loud as Cesaro makes his first cover of the night …

3!


Cesaro has pinned Jack Swagger but the rules of the “Real American” Street Fight, as spelt out by Heyman before the match began, mean that Swagger now has 60 seconds to get back in the ring. The referee signals for the timer to be started and orders Cesaro back into the ring first as Heyman studies his watch clearly counting down the time. An announcement quickly comes … Jack Swagger has 30 seconds remaining and, as yet, he has not moved since the Neutralizer despite Zeb Colter’s words. As the 15 second announcement comes, Swagger is showing signs of life and Colter is urging him to get back in the ring … 10 … 9 … 8 … 7 … 6 … Swagger is pulling himself up the mat … 5 … 4 … 3 … SWAGGER MAKES IT BACK TO THE RING! The referee signals that the match must continue and Cesaro puffs out his cheeks before returning to Swagger. He looks to grab him by the head but Swagger responds in desperate fashion with a shocking LOW BLOW! The crowd boo and the referee is unhappy but what can he do? As Cesaro, wincing, pulls up to the ropes, Swagger rushes over and clotheslines him over the top rope to the outside as he looks to go back on the attack and regain control here. Following him out, Swagger grabs the steel chair again, Colter handing it to him, and starts making use of it as he cracks it over the spine of the Swiss. As Lawler questions Cesaro’s attire tonight – his usual trunks and pads – Swagger continues to crash the chair over Cesaro and the Swiss heads up the ramp trying to get clear. Once on the stage, Swagger rams Cesaro face first into the WWE logo that is always on stage and then jams the chair into Cesaro’s gut as well for good measure. As the crowd boo, Swagger doesn’t appear to care and he now considers his next action carefully. Dragging Cesaro off the mat, Swagger grabs him around the gut …

GUTWRENCH POWERBOMB!
SWAGGER HITS THE GUTWRENCH POWERBOMB ON THE STAGE!


Excited now, Colter calls for Swagger to get the pin but Swagger has other ideas. He grabs the foot of Cesaro and looks to inflict ever more damage …

PATRIOT LOCK!
SWAGGER LOCKS CESARO IN THE PATRIOT LOCK!


Screaming at him to tap, Swagger pulls back on Cesaro’s injured leg as he looks to put him out of action here tonight. With a good thirty feet between Cesaro and the ring, the Gutwrench Powerbomb and a deteriorating ankle locked in the painful Patriot Lock, Cesaro’s chances do not look good. He tries to fight but Jerry Lawler urges Cesaro to save himself some pain and give himself a chance of getting back to the ring by tapping early. However, Cesaro’s pride appears to be preventing him here and he fights against it. In the end though, there is no choice …

TAP
TAP
TAP!


Cesaro has tapped out to Jack Swagger and his Patriot Lock looks to have done some serious damage here. However, Swagger, intent on causing some pain, refuses to release the hold and the referee can do nothing except protest. The referee is making it clear that the timer will not start until Swagger releases the hold but, clearly, every extra second in the hold will not help Cesaro anyway. Eventually, Swagger drops the foot of Cesaro and the referee signals for the time to begin but orders Swagger to return to the ring. Even so, the damage looks to be done and Swagger, with Colter beside him, heads for the ring looking pleased. Rolling into the ring, the camera shows a gutsy Cesaro dragging himself across the steel stage but it looks so far for him as the 30 second announcement comes. The crowd urge Cesaro on and chant his name but it looks forlorn. He gets to his feet but falls back down and when the 15 second announcement arrives, Cesaro is hardly halfway down towards the ring. Hobbling and stumbling, he gets closer and closer as the timer hits 10 … 9 … 8 … Cesaro isn’t going to make it even though Heyman is urging him on … 5 … 4 … 3 … Swagger raises his arms up in celebration … 2 … 1 … CESARO FINDS SOME ENERGY AND PULLS HIMSELF INTO THE RING IN THE NICK OF TIME! Swagger is going crazy, he cannot believe that Cesaro made it back from that and demands the referee signal for the bell. But the referee refuses and signals that the match continues to the disbelief of Swagger.

Grabbing Cesaro’s head, Swagger throws him through the ropes to the outside and looks intent on causing serious damage now. He drags him up the ramp once more and flings him shoulder first into the barricades lining the ramp before hitting a bodyslam on the steel stage. Colter points beyond the stage though and Swagger nods his head in agreement; it’s clear what is planned now. Get him as far away from the ring as possible and then repeat the previous trick. Holding the steel chair again, Colter is backing his man to the hilt as Heyman looks on worried but Swagger is in complete control. He throws Cesaro off the stage and he falls awkwardly on the concrete floor before staggering away looking for some respite. Swagger stalks him as they head beyond the Extreme Rules set and into the backstage area where we can now clearly hear Colter’s orders to Swagger to “break him” as Swagger kicks at Cesaro’s gut. Three times, Swagger measures and punts right into the gut of Cesaro before they head into the parking lot where there are some cars parked up. Swagger rams Cesaro into one of the cars, a white limo, and goes to slam his head into the bonnet but Cesaro counters and rams Swagger’s head instead. Has it done enough damage though or will it just delay the inevitable? Infuriated, Swagger grabs the steel chair again and slams it across Cesaro’s back, this is getting difficult to watch now. As Cesaro slumps over the limo bonnet, Swagger grabs his ankle again …

PATRIOT LOCK!
CESARO IS LOCKED UP ONCE AGAIN ON THE BONNET OF A LIMO!


Zeb Colter looks on delighted; this is surely the end of Cesaro for tonight. When he is forced to tap out here, how will Cesaro be able to get back to the ring in 60 seconds? In excruciating pain, Cesaro claws at the bonnet of the limo knowing that a tap out will mean defeat and he fights back against it but Swagger is too strong. However, Cesaro refuses to tap out despite the referee saying that he should; instead, he crawls further up onto the bonnet of the car and makes the hold awkward for Swagger who is forced to release it for a moment. Swagger pounds across the shoulders of Cesaro before he climbs up to the bonnet of the limo himself and throws Cesaro on top of the limo roof. The crowd sense that something big is coming but it looks as if Swagger is going to simply lock Cesaro in the Patriot Lock on the limo roof instead. He goes for it but Cesaro fights back and kicks out at the leg of Swagger instead, this causes Swagger to fall to a knee and Cesaro thrusts a right hand into his face. Fighting back, Cesaro has a glimmer of hope here and the crowd sense it. As both men get to their feet, Swagger swings a right arm at Cesaro but it is ducked and the Swiss kicks Swagger in the gut instead … He lifts Swagger up onto his shoulders and then drops back … Fallaway Slam on the roof on the limo! Swagger cries out in pain as Cesaro takes a moment to recover before he waves his hand around his head …

GIANT SWING!
CESARO STARTS TO SWING SWAGGER ROUND ON TOP OF THE LIMO!


Despite the lack of space, Cesaro manages 5 … 6 … 7 … 8 swings before releasing Swagger and he lands on the windscreen of the limo and the bonnet, a crack appears in the screen and the crowd are loving this in the arena. Cesaro shoves Swagger off the limo to the floor and pounces for the cover …

Cesaro picks up his second pinfall of the night but can he get back to the ring in time? If he gets back to the ring and then Swagger fails to, which seems likely, Cesaro would win this match. Shoulders round Heyman, Cesaro stumbles and moves towards the ring as the referee heads out in front to get there first. As Swagger is laid out on the bonnet, we hear the 30 second announcement as Cesaro, with Heyman, heads back into the arena and onto the stage. As the 15 second announcement goes out, it is clear that Swagger won’t make it but Cesaro needs to be there to win the match. He is close … can he do it? 5 … 4 … 3 … 2 … 1 … Cesaro rolls in just in time and the countdown reaches 0 with the crowd on their feet to embrace the winner of a tremendously brutal match …

WINNER: Cesaro (14:47)
As “Superhuman” echoes around the arena, Cesaro recovers whilst his hand is raised in victory; a superb effort tonight from Cesaro and the WWE Universe are delighted with his win. As the cameras show Swagger, still laid out beside the limo, Cesaro looks pleased with himself as he picks up a big win over his former partner and cements his status as one of the best up and coming youngsters in the WWE today. Looking exhausted, Cesaro acknowledges the cheers of the crowd before he falls to a knee once more. Cole, JBL and King hype his achievement up and JBL declares it a “Match of the Year” candidate with so much excitement involved. Whilst this is possibly a little over the top, there is no doubt that Cesaro and Swagger just delivered an incredibly exciting match here tonight.

The cameras switch backstage where Renee Young introduces the new WWE Intercontinental Champion, the man who defeated Big E moments ago, Bad News Barrett. Looking delighted with his win, Renee asks Barrett if he has a message for the man he beat tonight. Laughing, Barrett takes the microphone from Renee, adjusts the title belt over his shoulder and smirks at the camera.

BAD NEWS BARRETT:
Ladies and Gentlemen, listen to me, your new Intercontinental Champion!

A little pop for this, it appears that some of the WWE Universe enjoy Barrett’s “bad news” segments.

BAD NEWS BARRETT:
New Jersey, tonight you have witnessed one of THE greatest moments of 2014 here in the WWE, Bad News Barrett becoming the Intercontinental Champion when I defeated Big E in that ring. But, unfortunately, New Jersey, I have some BAD NEWS FOR YA!

The crowd are split as Barrett goes on to explain himself.

BAD NEWS BARRETT:
You see, whilst Bad News Barrett being the Intercontinental Champion is definitely not bad news, Big E losing the title is yet another example of the United States of America failing to defeat the British when it comes to the crunch.

Now, he’s getting booed by the crowd!

BAD NEWS BARRETT:
Whether it be the British Army capturing and burning your capital city of Washington D.C. down to the ground in 1814 or Bad News Barrett beating Big E here tonight at Extreme Rules, the result is that all of you people are once again proven to be second rate compared to the people of Great Britain. Consequently, people across the globe will always look at America as a stain on the Earth whilst acknowledging that Britain will always be welcome across the world in any capacity it desires. Just like I, Bad News Barrett, will be a welcome choice as the Intercontinental Champion across all four corners of the world and the popular choice to be the next man to be the WWE World Heavy …

Annoyance spreads over Barrett’s face as Big E walks into shot and interrupts his flow. However, Big E, showing immense class, offers his hand to the man who defeated him moments ago.

BIG E:
Congratulations, Barrett, great job tonight. You were the better man and deserved to win.

As Big E holds his hand out, Barrett looks down at it and smirks again before ignoring it and walking away with a smug look on his face. However, Big E shakes his head and smiles before speaking to Renee who is holding the microphone out to him now.

BIG E:
I guess that is what he calls the class of the British, yeah? I’ll give him credit, tonight he deserved the win and he deserves to be the new Intercontinental Champion. But I have a rematch clause and tomorrow night on RAW, I will take that rematch, learn from my errors tonight and win back the Intercontinental Championship. You can count on that.

Renee thanks Big E for his words as he heads away – big announcement there though. Big E will challenge Bad News Barrett tomorrow night on RAW as he looks to win back his Intercontinental Championship! Back at ringside, Michael Cole introduces replays from the Extreme Rules pre-show that aired moments before tonight’s PPV live on the WWE Network and we see Stephanie McMahon’s announcement that Daniel Bryan will face a match tonight before his WWE World Heavyweight Championship defence to make things fair after the Evolution and Shield contest earlier tonight; we, of course, now know that Triple H will be the one to challenge Bryan for that title. We also see replays of Big Show knocking Damien Sandow cold once more to get the victory and Alexander Rusev continue his domination of the WWE with another big victory over the game but ultimately unsuccessful Kofi Kingston.

MEAT ON THE TABLE / REBORN MIX
RYBAXEL
Curtis Axel & Ryback


The #1 contenders for the Tag Team Championship head out with Michael Cole highlighting their impressive winning streak of late – victories over Cody Rhodes and Goldust, Los Matadores and even the champions themselves in recent weeks. As Ryback prowls around the ring, Curtis Axel, the son of the late great Mr. Perfect of course, holds his arms wide as he poses on the corner buckles. Can RybAxel win once again here tonight, when it really matters, and head away from Extreme Rules as the new Tag Team Champions?

** SIVA’TAU INTRO **
SO CLOSE NOW
THE USOS
WWE Tag Team Champions


As the Tag Team Champions follow their traditional entrance, they head for the ring with the Tag Team Championships around their waists and looking to retain them here tonight against the dangerous challengers, RybAxel. As they salute the crowd, The Usos hold their titles high and look confident but will they be able to hold onto them tonight? Jerry Lawler says that after recent results, the champions are potentially the underdogs here tonight, not the normal situation for champions to be in, he thinks they could be in danger of losing the belts here tonight.



Quote:
WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS
THE USOS © vs. RYBAXEL
Curtis Axel and Jimmy Uso start us off here tonight with the titles on the line and a big atmosphere after a cracking start to the show so far. In an even start, neither side is able to gain an advantage until Ryback enters the ring and uses his power to really hammer at Jey Uso. However, Uso fights back and staggers the big powerhouse backwards towards the ropes, Jey comes off the opposite ropes and rushes at Ryback who lifts him up into a Flapjack type manoeuvre; Axel pulls down the top rope at the same time and, with a groan from the crowd, Jey goes head first to the outside and lands uncomfortably on the floor. Advantage to the challengers, it appears. From this moment on, RybAxel put on a clinic in Tag Team wrestling as they cut off the ring and make frequent tags in and out as well as putting a real beating on Jey Uso. Frustrated on the outside, Jimmy Uso has to stand and watch and desperately hope for Jey to get back into this but he never really gets close and the Tag Team Championships look in real jeopardy as RybAxel control the pace.

Unfortunately for RybAxel though, Jey shows guts and determination and refuses to be pinned down for the 3. When Ryback lifts him high into a Military Press and then drops him down face first on the mat, things look to be over and Ryback, sensing victory, retreats to the corner and begins winding up for the Meathook Clothesline which you have to feel would really put the titles in grave danger. As Ryback rushes at Jey, he ducks under it and comes off the opposite ropes with a running dropkick that delights the WWE Universe who urge him on to make the tag now. As Jey stretches towards the corner and the hand of Jimmy, Ryback tags in Axel who rushes over to make the save … but he is too late. In comes Jimmy Uso now, he is much fresher and is capable of putting up a fight to RybAxel here. He hits a back body drop to Axel before a double underhook suplex, he goes for the cover and looks to have a chance.

No!

Ryback breaks the count!


To be fair, Axel appeared to be kicking out as well but the referee reprimands Ryback and orders him out of the ring. As Axel and Jimmy Uso trade right hands, Axel regains the advantage with a kick to the gut and looks for a Perfect-Plex but this fails when Uso wraps his foot round Axel’s leg. He then counters out of the move and hits a suplex of his own before rushing Ryback and knocking him off the edge of the apron. As Axel comes swinging at him, Uso ducks it … SAMOAN DROP! Jimmy hits the Samoan Drop and the crowd count along, has he done enough here?

No!

Axel kicks out just in time!


Annoyed with the attack on him moments earlier, Ryback grabs the foot of Jimmy after the near fall and drags him under the bottom rope to the outside where he connects with the Meathook Clothesline for good measure. Protesting, the referee threatens RybAxel with a DQ next time that happens but the match continues here; Usos fans may like to have seen the DQ given there? Axel rolls Jimmy back into the ring and sets for the Perfect-Plex again but the Uso twists out of it and ducks under his arm to make the tag to Jey once more. Quick as a flash, Jey hits the top rope and leaps off at Axel to hit a shoulder block from the top. Feeling the momentum building, Jey beckons for Axel to get to his feet but again there is a distraction, verbal this time, from Ryback in his corner. Curtis Axel takes advantage with a clubbing blow to the back of Jey’s head and then looks to whip him across the ring but Jey counters and sends Axel flying into the Usos corner instead. As he bounces back out, Jey is quick as a flash again …

SUPERKICK!
JEY USO NAILS AXEL WITH A SUPERKICK!


Jey makes a quick tag to his brother Jimmy who begins to climb up the turnbuckles. However, Ryback is heading into the ring again …

SUPERKICK AGAIN!
JEY KNOCKS RYBACK DOWN WITH THE SUPERKICK TO STOP HIM!


Both members of RybAxel are down and out as Jimmy measures from the top rope …

SUPERFLY SPLASH!
JIMMY SAILS OFF THE TOP ROPE TO CONNECT WITH THE SPLASH!


The crowd cheer ecstatically as Jimmy lands the Superfly Splash perfectly and then hooks Axel’s leg for the victory as the crowd chant along …

WINNERS: The Usos (7:51)

The Usos retain the Tag Team Championships.
A successful title defence for the Usos who had to battle back from a difficult early situation here tonight but found a way to come back for the win and preserve their Tag Team Championship reign. As Ryback and Axel slump out of the ring and away, The Usos celebrate with their title belts, a hard fought victory but a big victory considering their recent losses to RybAxel in Tag and Singles competition. As The Usos celebrate, we switch to a promo video highlighting the imminent return of one of the greats here in the WWE …


CHRIS JERICHO
RETURNS TO RAW
Monday May 19


Big news there, Y2J returns in two weeks’ time as RAW moves on towards the next PPV, Payback, to be held on June 1, 2014. However, before all that happens, we have more issues to deal with this evening and the PPV continues backstage as we see Brie Bella, the new wife of WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan of course, walking backstage. As she does, she comes across the wife of his challenger tonight and the Principal Owner of the WWE, Stephanie McMahon. Steph reaches out and stops Brie to speak to her as they cross.

STEPHANIE McMAHON:
Brie, I know that our husbands are currently having a few “issues” with each other but I just wanted to say, from the bottom of my heart, that I hope you and Daniel have a wonderful life together. I heard the wedding was amazing and it is lovely to see two people here in the WWE meet each other and fall in love.

Brie Bella smiles a distrusting smile at Stephanie and she picks up on this.

STEPHANIE McMAHON:
Come on, Brie, let’s not have the problems between Daniel and Hunter come between us. You know what the men are like, they’re always battling to be the alpha male, there’s no reason for you and I to fall out, is there?

Brie looks at Stephanie with a look of confusion.

BRIE BELLA:
That’d be fine, Stephanie, that’d be fine if you were sticking your nose into their business every five seconds wouldn’t it? You talk about Daniel’s problems with Triple H as if you’re not involved in any way. Daniel doesn’t deserve all the grief you’re causing him, Stephanie.

Stephanie smirks and rolls her eyes at Brie.

STEPHANIE McMAHON:
Let me put things differently, Brie. There’s no reason for you and I to fall out over this because, quite simply, I am your boss. Tonight, I suggest you get ready to console your little husband because by the time that Triple H is finished with him tonight, not only will he no longer be the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, he’s going to need some TLC. Tonight, Daniel goes out there and faces an opponent of my choosing in a match and then he will defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship immediately after that …

Jeers in the arena for the news of the scheduling but we are still no clearer about who Bryan will be facing …

STEPHANIE McMAHON:
… and Brie, I guarantee that his little fantasy, his little dream … it ends tonight when Hunter turns it into a nightmare.

Stephanie walks away, message delivered, leaving a worried looking Brie Bella stood against the wall. However, the PPV carries on and we have another huge match coming up next as John Cena and Bray Wyatt clash inside a Steel Cage. After their match at WrestleMania 30, when Cena overcame the demons that Wyatt was trying to plant in his head, things have continued to heat up between them in the past few weeks and tonight things are to be settled inside a steel cage. What horrors await John Cena here tonight? The cameras focus on the cage as it is lowered, flashlights popping all around the arena as it does, whilst Michael Cole hypes up the match coming up next and we head into the history video …

*** VIDEO PACKAGE ***

The video shows Bray Wyatt and his family distracting Cena at the Royal Rumble to deny him the WWE World Heavyweight Championship before being hit with the Sister Abigail before moving on to the Elimination Chamber and the “Man of 1000 Truths” again costing Cena his chance to win the gold. As we see Wyatt’s attacks on Cena in the build to WrestleMania 30, Cena appears looking disorientated and confused before we see the unique tactics employed by Bray at the biggest event of the year. The video really plays up the choices in front of Cena on that night in New Orleans – listen to the demons or fight back against the demons – and his eventual victory, of sorts, over Bray to satisfy the huge numbers of his Cenation in attendance. However, that was not the end of that and we see clips of Bray Wyatt’s continued attention on Cena, his accusations of Cena lying about his true intentions and his twisted words suggesting that Cena has a “hidden monster” inside that is waiting to be unleashed. The video ends with distorted clips of Cena hitting the Attitude Adjustment and the STF to Wyatt at WrestleMania whilst monstrous sounds are heard – will we witness the unleashing of Cena’s hidden monster here tonight?

*** END VIDEO ***


When the video ends, we head back to the ring which is now shrouded inside the steel cage as we prepare for what is sure to be another epic, emotional battle here tonight …

MY TIME IS NOW
JOHN CENA


To the usual mixed reception, Cena, dressed in neon green and black, heads out and salutes the crowd whilst grinning at the reaction; as the camera spins past him, he shouts out that “We going to hell and back tonight!” before heading down the ramp towards the ring. Instead of sliding under the bottom rope as he normally would, Cena pauses and surveys the steel cage before heading through the doors and stepping through the ropes instead here tonight. Once inside the cage, he again salutes the crowd as they cheer or boo him in polarising fashion. However, as he removes his entrance gear and hands it over to the official, there appears to be an apprehensive look in his eyes. What horrors await Cena here tonight in New Jersey?

Suddenly, the lights drop and the Wyatt’s entrance is announced before they appear on the big screen with the lantern in Bray’s hand.

BRAY WYATT:
New Jersey … We’re here!

BROKEN OUT IN LOVE
BRAY WYATT
with Erick Rowan & Luke Harper


With many of the crowd clapping along rhythmically with Wyatt’s theme, the trio head out into the darkness with just the solitary lantern lighting their way. Behind Bray are his followers, Harper dragging the rocking chair and Rowan in the sheep mask, he stops at the bottom of the ramp and looks up in the dim light at Cena in the ring. Smirking, Wyatt blows out the lantern before the lights return and we then see Bray, Hawaiian shirt and white trousers on, remove his hat as he sits in the chair. Slowly, he gets up and heads for the cage door but he is making Cena think about this; can Bray Wyatt prove his dominance over Cena extends to inside the ring as well as inside his head? The cage door is locked and the bell is rung …

Quote:
STEEL CAGE MATCH (PINFALL, SUBMISSION OR ESCAPE)
BRAY WYATT vs. JOHN CENA

When the bell rings, Cena is stood in his corner of the ring shadow boxing and on his toes, looking over at Wyatt and waiting for him to make the first move. However, Wyatt has his back to Cena in the opposite corner and he refuses to look at him; this stand-off continues for a while and you can sense the anxiety from Cena to get started. As the referee speaks to Bray Wyatt, he is ignored and Wyatt continues to look and speak out to his followers, Harper and Rowan, positioned outside the cage but ominously in attendance. “I will not look that monster in the eye!” shouts out Wyatt and Cena complains to the official one more time. As Bray drops to his knees, arms outstretched but still facing away from Cena, the announce table describe Wyatt as unorthodox; an understatement if there ever was one. He continues to look away from Cena who decides to call Bray’s bluff and he tentatively heads to the side of the ring and pulls himself up the side of the cage despite the fact that a punch has not been thrown in anger as of yet. With the crowd engaging in dual chanting – “Let’s go Cena!” … “Cena sucks!” – Cena, looking over his shoulder regularly, makes the climb and is ready to pull himself up to the top of the cage wall when Harper and Rowan position themselves underneath him and stare at him. Wyatt remains on his knees, looking away, but Cena and Wyatt’s followers are now staring at each other …

Suddenly, Bray is on his feet, taking advantage of Cena being distracted, he yanks Cena down with the waistline of his jean shorts and he lands hard on his back with a crash as a large proportion of the crowd cheer. Laughing maniacally, Wyatt steps over Cena and mocks him which infuriates Cena and he throws a leg up and kicks Wyatt in the shoulder before leaping up quick and finally the fight is on. Cena throws a series of rights and staggers Bray back to the corner but a knee to the gut stops his momentum before he is whipped hard across the ring into the opposite buckle. As Bray rushes over though, Cena dodges the bullet and then takes his opponent down with a headlock which he cinches in whilst down on the mat. As Cena twists his arms and looks to increase the pressure on Wyatt’s head, he is forced back up and popped off into the ropes; Wyatt throws and clothesline but Cena ducks and hits the ropes again, a back elbow from Wyatt is also ducked but when Cena goes for a shoulder tackle, Wyatt catches him and readjusts into a swinging backbreaker across his knee. As Cena recovers from this bump, Wyatt kneels beside him and talks once more; Cena’s words that Bray Wyatt seems to be disinterested in winning and losing seem more and more plausible here tonight.

Once Cena staggers into the corner, Wyatt watches him with interest and then rushes at him and hits a splash in the corner before he drags Cena down and throws him onto the mat. A few stiff kicks to the chest and stomach follow but Wyatt stops the assault once more and this time talks out to the crowd – “Do you want to see the hidden monster within?” he calls out to them. Dragging Cena off the mat, Wyatt looks to throw Cena into the steel cage wall using his neck but Cena reverses it instead and Wyatt is the first one to take a ride and eat the steel. Enraged now, Cena throws Wyatt into all four walls of the cage and then lets out a roar of frustration; is this the hidden monster that Bray is talking about? Taking a moment to compose himself in the corner, Cena’s face is looking ruffled once more and he watches as Wyatt struggles up. As soon as he does, he explodes out of the corner with an elbow and then follows up with some more heavy right hands and a big right boot to the face. However, as Wyatt struggles up, he is laughing to himself and the announce team suggest that Bray Wyatt is getting exactly what he wants from Cena here. A monster. The hidden monster.

When Bray pushes himself back up, Cena looks to hit a suplex but Wyatt fights out and instead resorts, once more, to throwing Cena into the walls of the cage once more. Locking Cena in a headlock, Bray hits a snap suplex on Cena and leaves him struggling once again as he goes back to his slow, methodical pace and looks to pick Cena apart here. With clear malicious intent, Wyatt stalks Cena and waits for him to rise; he smashes a hard right hand in the face of Cena when he gets to wobbling legs. Repeat three times. Wyatt is in control but is showing no interest in trying to escape the cage, it seems, he is only interested in destroying Cena here tonight. As Cena wobbles up once more, Wyatt lifts him high and hits a chokeslam to the cheers of some of the crowd and the jeers of the others; the crowd is 50/50 split it seems. Once more, with Cena down, Wyatt refuses to go for the escape or a pinfall here but it backfires when Cena ducks another punch and hits a shaky looking dropkick before going for what is, well past the 7:00 mark, the first pinfall attempt of the match.

No!

Wyatt powers out laughing!


With both men recovering a little, Cena props himself in the corner as Wyatt charges in at him once more but he gets a boot to the face instead and Cena counters. He pulls himself to the middle ropes and hits a Tornado DDT that drives Bray’s head down to the mat again before leaping onto him and going for the pinfall once more …

2
No!

Again, Bray kicks out with relative ease at 2!


Cena is immediately on Wyatt though and launches right hand after right hand at Bray before grabbing him by the neck and running him into the steel cage to take some revenge. Intensity pouring from him, Cena rams Wyatt’s head into the steel wall over and over before hitting the opposite ropes and looking to splash Wyatt against it too; Wyatt dodges though and Cena collides with the steel. Falling down and tangling in the ropes, Cena is looking pained as he pulls himself up against the steel … BAM! Bray Wyatt crashes into him once more and squashes Cena against it with a running forearm smash. As the boos ring out, Wyatt looks possessed as he looks around; he locks eyes on Cena and drags him through the ropes before lifting him high … POWERBOMB! WYATT HITS A POWERBOMB ON CENA! He kneels down beside him and lifts his head, what is Wyatt doing here? As he strokes at Cena’s face, he is singing once more … “He’s got the whole world … in his hands …” and the crowd are joining in in some quarters. Cena kicks himself away and Wyatt mocks him once more before stalking after him. Right hands from Wyatt now, he connects over and over but then Cena, from somewhere deep inside, finds the reserve to strike back and a slugfest develops between the two. However, when Cena looks for a desperate clothesline, Wyatt ducks it and hits another back suplex before calling out for Abigail now.

The crowd are on the edge of their seats as Wyatt drags Cena and sets him up ready to strike. However, as Wyatt looks for Sister Abigail, Cena twists his way into a counter and hits the Protoplex to crash Wyatt down before raising his hand high … FIVE KNUCKLE SHUFFLE CONNECTS! On the outside of the cage, Harper and Rowan are pacing but they cannot help; that is why the Steel Cage match was made. Sensing a chance, Cena climbs to the top rope and unsteadily stands on top of the buckle as he waits for Wyatt to drag himself up. He leaps up looking for the Leg Drop but Wyatt again dodges Cena’s big move and allows him to crash down hard on the mat …

SISTER ABIGAIL!
OUT OF NOWHERE, WYATT STRIKES WITH SISTER ABIGAIL!


Again though, no sign of a cover from Bray Wyatt who simply stands, hands outstretched, over Cena with a look of intense pleasure in his eyes as he laughs. What the hell is this all about? He drops to his knees again and is talking down to John Cena who is out of it right now. With Cena down, Bray stalks around the ring and climbs on the ropes to yell out at the crowd about silencing Cena and saving them all from the monster within. All the time, he is allowing Cena time to recover it seems and this proves correct when Wyatt, finally returning to his opponent, goes for Discus clothesline. Cena ducks it and hits his patented shoulder tackles instead before unleashing a huge right hand to knock Wyatt down. Yelling out with rage, Cena heads to the top buckle once more and leaps off … LEG DROP TO THE BACK OF WYATT’S HEAD! Cena hits it and half the crowd go wild with delight … but can he finish the job here? Cena waits and waits and then lifts Wyatt to his shoulders … but Wyatt grabs the steel cage instead and prevents the Attitude Adjustment that Cena desperately wants to hit. Frustrated, Cena lets him down and then comes off the ropes with a big clothesline that almost turns Bray inside out. Surveying the situation, Cena opts for a different approach …

STF!
CENA LOCKS IN AN STF!


Can Wyatt survive or will Cena force him to tap out here inside this steel cage? Desperately pulling back, Cena wants Wyatt to tap out so he can secure a second straight victory over the leader of the Wyatt Family but Bray is fighting hard to avoid it. Behind them, Rowan, still in his sheep mask, starts climbing the wall of the cage and the referee heads over to tell him to get down as Bray fights to hang on. On the other side, Harper opens the cage door and slides into the ring a leather strap and, despite the pain he is in, Wyatt grabs at it. When the referee returns, Wyatt is struggling to resist and Cena, unaware of the strap, still looks for the tap out … but Wyatt grabs the cage wall. Although he doesn’t have to break the hold, Cena does and looks to lay some stomp kicks to the back of Wyatt who is in pain from that STF. However, he has an equaliser and Cena is unaware of it … THWACK! WYATT SUDDENLY STRIKES CENA WITH THE STRAP! As Cena folds in pain, Wyatt ignores the protestations of the referee and slaps the leather strap over Cena’s back over and over and over again until red welts show all over him. Using the loop on the end of the strap, Bray wraps it around Cena’s neck now and drags him to the corner; as he sits on the top rope, Bray lifts Cena with the strap and begins to choke him with it. A dastardly turn of events thanks to Harper and Rowan despite the cage being in place. However, Cena will not quit and he struggles like hell to get out of the strap but Wyatt is strong and refuses. Standing on the top buckle, Wyatt still has hold of the strap and he uses it to pull Cena up as well, slowly and surely, the struggling Cena following instinct to ease the choking sensations. With both men stood on the top turnbuckle, things look precarious but now Wyatt makes his move further up and lifts himself onto the top of the cage wall; but why is he bringing Cena with him here? For the first time tonight, Wyatt makes a move to win the match as he climbs the cage – no pinfall or submission attempts from him at all so far – but he is using the strap and dragging Cena up as well.

Eventually, Wyatt has Cena dragged up and sitting, weak, astride the top of the cage as well as him. Although both men are seconds from victory, it is clear that Bray has things in control but what is he planning. He looks down to the outside where Harper and Rowan are watching intently and laughs once more … and Cena responds with a clubbing right hand. As both men straddle the top of the cage, they trade right hands over and over. Cena is enraged and his veins are almost popping as he gives everything to the fight here. However, Wyatt looks intense too and delivers heavy right hands of his own. Cena begins to get the better to the delight of many of the CeNation in the crowd and makes his move, as Bray sways dangerously back, to move away and begin the journey down. However, as he does, Harper and Rowan are there and they give Cena a problem which allows Bray to strike with the leather strap once more … It smashes over Cena’s back and he struggles to hold his balance on the top of the cage. Wyatt, grabs him by the neck and turns him to look out to the crowd … Surely not? Wyatt is holding Cena and looking down at the Spanish announce table below! SURELY HE IS NOT GOING TO DO THIS?

WYATT LAUGHS UNCONTROLLABLY AND THROWS CENA OFF THE CAGE!
CENA FALLS 15 FEET AND CRASHES THROUGH THE SPANISH ANNOUNCE TABLE!


The crowd go wild as Cena smashes the Spanish announce table to pieces and lands hard on the floor, they cannot believe what they have just witnessed. However, as Bray looks down maniacally, things suddenly become clear … Cena, despite the crash landing, has won the match!

WINNER: John Cena (17:48)
Laid amongst the splintered Spanish announce table, the announcement is made that John Cena is the victor here tonight; but he looks anything but victorious as he lies flat out. The announce team are in shock – Bray Wyatt, without a care for winning the match, threw John Cena off the top of the cage wall and through the Spanish announce desk and, technically, handed John Cena the victory here tonight. However, as Bray sits astride the top of the cage, he is laughing and appears to be unconcerned over the “loss” here tonight. What will this monster do next? EMT’s and medics are tending to Cena who has not moved since he crashed through the table and there is real concern amongst the announce team as they look on sombre at Cena’s mangled body. Michael Cole, quietly, offers the view that John Cena’s career could be over tonight here at Extreme Rules …

*** FOUR WEEKS FROM TONIGHT ***

PAYBACK
Sunday June 1, 2014
… There will be … payback.


Once we return from the advert for the next WWE PPV in four weeks’ time, Payback, the cameras return showing John Cena being loaded onto a stretcher at the side of the ring, minus the cage and minus the Wyatts, before he is wheeled out of the arena with some concerned looks on the faces of the WWE Universe. Jerry Lawler says that John Cena is one of the toughest men there has ever been in the WWE and that to see him leave like that, neck brace and all, is not a sight he likes whilst JBL suggests that Michael Cole could be right – if Cena’s career is not over, he expects him to be absent for a long time after a fall like that. Cole throws up to the WWE Network panel sat up in the stands where Josh Mathews is waiting …

Up at the WWE Network panel, Ric Flair, Booker T and Rob Van Dam look shocked at what they have just seen; Mathews suggests to them that we may just have seen the destructive power and attitude of Bray Wyatt as well as – potentially – the end of John Cena’s career.

BOOKER T:
Man, I’m … I’m … Am speechless, man. I can’t believe I just saw Bray Wyatt do ‘dat, right there. He coulda’ won the damn match but … Wow, man.

RIC FLAIR:
We knew this man was dangerous but y’know, did we think he would do that? I’ve seen guys go through a lot in this business but I don’t see how John Cena can ever be the same again after that.

ROB VAN DAM:
How do you deal with a man like Bray Wyatt? How can you contend with a guy like that, man? He doesn’t appear to care about winning and losing, that makes him as dangerous a man as has ever set foot in this business.

Mathews summarises that, like many here in the Izod Center tonight, the main emotion right now on the panel appears to be one of shock at Bray Wyatt’s actions here tonight. The cameras are back on Cena as he is wheeled through the backstage area and loaded into the ambulance. As the engines begin, the sirens are started but as the door is closed and the ambulance sets off, we see Bray Wyatt, flanked by Luke Harper and Erick Rowan, smiling in a mesmerised fashion. What have these monsters done here tonight at Extreme Rules?

Follow that – who wants to be out next after what we just saw? Well, the bell rings and we are informed that it is time for the Triple Threat match for the Divas Championship …

LIGHT IT UP
AJ LEE


Making her way out into the arena, AJ gets a big reception as she heads out into her hometown crowd here tonight. The former Divas Champion skips her way to the ring and slides under the bottom rope where she looks around at the New Jersey crowd as they cheer her here tonight. However, AJ has a microphone and appears to have something she wants to get off her chest. She looks around and begins to speak out …

AJ:
Here I am, back in New Jersey … But this time, I am missing something. What could it be?

AJ looks down at her waist and then snaps her fingers.

AJ:
Oh yeah, my WWE Divas Championship. The Divas Championship that I held longer than any other Diva in the history of the WWE. The Divas Championship that I lost, somehow, on RAW … to Paige.

More cheers, this time for the popular Divas Champion.

AJ:
And all of you people cheer, don’t you? I come out here in front of my home crowd and you all cheer me like you care about me but when Paige came out on RAW, I bet every single one of you was rooting for her to end my reign of dominance. But why would I expect any different from all of you? Why would I expect you to be on my side? After all, nobody here cared for me when I was a little girl moving from motel to motel, begging friends and family to let us stay there. The state of New Jersey did nothing for my family and I. When I was working three jobs to follow my dream of making it to the WWE and becoming the best Diva in the business, you all paid lousy tips and nobody cared. Back when I was wrestling under the name of Miss April here in New Jersey, hardly any of you came to watch me perform, none of you cared about AJ Lee then. So what’s changed, New Jersey? Is it because I made it? Is it because I was the Divas Champion?

As the crowd begin to turn on AJ a little, she smirks.

AJ:
Tonight, I go up against that lucky rookie, Paige, and that stupid powerhouse, Tamina. And I am going to win back my WWE Divas Champion and begin a brand new dominant reign as the Divas Champion. And if I do, some of you might cheer for me but you know what? I don’t give a damn what you do, New Jersey. None of you ever gave a damn about me until I won the Divas Championship. And when I win it back tonight, I still won’t give a damn about any of you.

Boos in the arena as AJ slams her home state before tossing the microphone away.

TROPICAL STORM
TAMINA SNUKA


The “stupid powerhouse” – as AJ just referred to her – heads out looking unimpressed with her former partner’s words there. As Tamina, the daughter of the great Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, heads for the ring, she points to AJ and tells her that she is going to beat her here tonight and be the new Divas Champion. AJ laughs and ignores Tamina as she gets into the ring; Tamina glares at her before the Divas Champion arrives.

STARS IN THE NIGHT
PAIGE
WWE Divas Champion


Nice pop for the new Divas Champion, the rookie Paige. As she excitedly heads out for her first ever WWE PPV, Paige salutes the fans and she gets a cheer from the crowd, many more of whom are supporting her after AJ’s words, before she gets on the apron and raises the title high. In the ring, Paige hands over the Divas Championship and her jacket whilst Michael Cole suggests that despite winning all her matches since winning the title, Paige is still trying to prove herself here in the Divas division and many people believe that the power of Tamina or the know-how of AJ could lead to Paige’s title reign coming to an end here tonight just 27 days after she became the champion. The title is held high by the referee before he signals for the bell and the match begins …



Quote:
WWE DIVAS CHAMPIONSHIP
TRIPLE THREAT MATCH
PAIGE © vs. AJ LEE vs. TAMINA SNUKA

When the bell rings, all three Divas tread carefully, none of them willing to rush in. With Paige on guard against a potential double assault from the former partners but AJ unsure about Tamina as well, it takes a while for this one to get going. After a short period of back and forth action, AJ and Tamina do team up and the young Divas Champion is forced to show some guts to hang in there. Tamina becomes the more dominant competitor when she takes control over Paige’s destruction with AJ, leaning back against the ropes, allowing her to do as she desires. However, the crunch moment comes when Tamina body slams Paige to the mat and throws her hands up in the air to signal a Superfly Splash. This is the moment that AJ decides to get involved again as she hooks Paige’s leg, behind Tamina’s back, could she get the victory? No, Paige shows real guts and determination to kick out but this leads to Tamina confronting AJ. As tensions build between them, AJ and Tamina take their eyes off Paige and she has time to recover a little. Annoyed with AJ’s comments, Tamina launches at AJ and begins pummelling away at her as she uses her power and strength to beat AJ down. However, AJ is resourceful and gets a well-aimed kick into the midriff of Tamina to counter. With AJ focused on Tamina, Paige suddenly explodes back into life and hits a perfect side kick to the ribs of AJ before grabbing her hair and tossing her across the ring. As AJ is caught out completely, Paige grabs her and locks her up …

CLOVERLEAF!
PAIGE HAS AJ LOCKED IN THE CLOVERLEAF!


Will AJ tap out here tonight in her home state of New Jersey? She appears close as Paige desperately tries to apply as much pressure as she can but AJ fights and fights as she tries to claw at the ropes. In the end though, Tamina comes to the rescue – and saves herself from failure too – when she suddenly appeared in range …

SUPERKICK!
TAMINA ALMOST DECAPITATES PAIGE WITH A SUPERKICK!


This is surely over now, we’re going to have a new Divas Champion! Tamina grabs Paige and makes the cover …

No!

Somehow, Paige kicks out!


What guts from the Divas Champion, what an unbelievable kick out that was! As she claws and wriggles her way from Tamina, Paige is clearly hurt but clearly determined not to give up here tonight. Tamina, realising how close she was, looks to grab Paige and punish her some more but as she pulls the champion up, Paige spins round the back of Tamina and hits a big German Suplex …

No!

Tamina kicks out just in time!


With both Paige and Tamina focused on each other, AJ comes back into play now as she rolls up Paige; surprised, Paige’s shoulders are down and this could be danger …

No!

Kick out from Paige!


AJ and Paige go at it, trading right hands, they are both desperate to walk out of Extreme Rules with the title in their grasp. AJ gets the better of the confrontation and looks to lock in the Black Widow but Paige fights desperately against it instead.

SUPERKICK!
TAMINA SUPERKICKS AJ OUT OF NOWHERE!


AJ is down and out as Tamina turns her attention towards the Divas Champion instead; however, Paige ducks her clothesline and Tamina heads to the ropes … Paige connects with a dropkick to the back of the head of Tamina who topples over the rope and down to the outside. As AJ struggles to her knees, Paige grabs her …

PAIGE TURNER!
AJ IS HIT WITH THE PAIGE TURNER ONCE AGAIN!


As Paige shoots a look towards Tamina, who is struggling to crawl back to the ring, she sees that this is her chance and hooks the leg of AJ …

WINNER: Paige (5:08)

Paige retains her Divas Championship.
Delight for the Divas Champion as she survives her first Divas Championship defence here on PPV at Extreme Rules! As the crowd cheer, Paige is handed the Divas Championship title belt and decides, with AJ and Tamina looking less than pleased here, that getting out of the ring would be a good idea. Backing off up the ramp, Paige smiles as she raises the title belt high over her head and the crowd respond with cheers and applause. However, AJ is less than pleased as she screams out in frustration whilst Tamina, still holding her head where she hit it falling out of the ring, is glaring out after the Divas Champion too. As Paige exits, AJ turns her attention on Tamina and is clearly blaming her for the fact that she was unable to regain her title here tonight. As AJ prods Tamina in the chest and castigates her, the Samoan cracks and delivers a right hand to AJ that knocks her hard to the mat. Dragging AJ up, the crowd are partially behind her here after AJ’s words about New Jersey earlier this evening; Samoan Drop from Tamina to AJ! Unwilling to accept AJ’s criticism any more, Tamina climbs to the top rope and salutes her father, Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, before leaping off … SUPERFLY SPLASH CONNECTS! Tamina lands on AJ and connects perfectly before standing over her and glaring down at her former partner. What a message from the Samoan Powerhouse here tonight.

After replays of Tamina’s attack on AJ are shown, Tamina is shown exiting the arena before the cameras switch to the locker room where Batista and Randy Orton, two-thirds of Evolution, are shown still looking rather annoyed over the actions of Triple H earlier this evening. As they mutter between themselves, we see the “Cerebral Assassin” himself, dressed and ready for action here later tonight, enter the locker room. Immediately, Batista and Orton stand up and stare at the C.O.O. of the company, they are frustrated over the way that Triple H took advantage of their downfall tonight to slip in the back door and get the victory for Evolution which means he challenges for Daniel Bryan’s WWE World Heavyweight Championship tonight. However, The Game holds his hands out to calm them down.

TRIPLE H:
Guys, hold it, hold it. Look, I get it, you’re frustrated, you’re annoyed, I get it. I would be too but hear me out will ya?

Batista and Orton hold off a moment but it is clear that they are prepared to make HHH pay for his actions earlier tonight.

TRIPLE H:
When we reformed all this, Evolution, back together again, we did this for a reason. A reason bigger than individual reigns as champion, a reason bigger than Evolution beating The Shield. We did this to end that little troll and his phony title reign once and for all and I am damned if I am going to allow him to come between the three of us here tonight. The three of us, Evolution, we defeated The Shield tonight and we earned the right to face Bryan tonight for his title. It doesn’t matter who it is – it could have been Dave “The Animal” Batista … it could have been the “Legend Kill … the Legend” Randy Orton … or it could be me. We’re here tonight for one reason and one reason only; stop Daniel Bryan once and for all, end this damn “Yes!” movement and take back the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Triple H looks into the eyes of Batista and then switches to Orton; are they relenting?

TRIPLE H:
We just need to end this here tonight, end Daniel Bryan. When we take back the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, when the title is back in the hands of the Authority, we can give you both a shot at it, we can have a tournament, we can do whatever we want to do. But tonight, here at Extreme Rules, the main objective is to walk out of here tonight, out of this craphole that is New Jersey …

Large boos from the crowd outside in the arena.

TRIPLE H:
… with that WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the possession of Evolution, the possession of the Authority … and no longer around the waist of Daniel Bryan. I know you’d both rather be the ones to challenge for the title but all that matters is that one of us is. Now, are you both with me?

Despite the animosity that Batista and Orton were displaying, things appear to be calmer now. Hunter offers his hand to the Animal and he pauses for a moment and looks to Orton … before he shakes the hand of the Game. HHH also offers his hand to Orton and we see a second handshake – Evolution are back on the same page here tonight ahead of HHH’s title shot at Daniel Bryan later tonight. As the cameras switch back to the announce table, Michael Cole talks about earlier tonight on the Extreme Rules pre-show and the comments of Stephanie McMahon, the wife of Triple H, regarding Daniel Bryan here tonight …

Quote:
EXTREME RULES PRE-SHOW: Earlier tonight.

STEPHANIE McMAHON:
Thank you, Renee. As you just saw, Daniel Bryan overcame all the odds at WrestleMania 30 to become your WWE World Heavyweight Champion and, contrary to what you may all believe, The Authority, once we had time to reflect, were impressed with the guts shown by Daniel. Whilst my husband, Triple H, and I continue to believe that Daniel is not WWE World Heavyweight Champion material, we recognise the sacrifices that Daniel has made to reach this point in his career. At WrestleMania, Daniel won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and that proves to every single member of the WWE Universe that no matter what your limitations, you can be a star if you work hard enough and believe in yourself. Unfortunately though, Daniel, all dreams have to end and tonight is the night that yours ends. You see, when Evolution destroy The Shield later tonight, one of Batista, Randy Orton or Triple H will be challenging you for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and then the clock will be striking midnight. However, I’m sure you’ll agree with me, Daniel, when I say that if your challenger is already through a gruelling 6-man Tag match before he faces you, surely you should have a match beforehand too? Therefore, Daniel Bryan will be competing in another match tonight at Extreme Rules in a non-title match before facing the winner of the 6-man Tag. Now, I expect you’re wondering who that opponent will be but we’re going to leave that little announcement until the actual PPV, a surprise for Daniel Bryan I guess you could call it? After that match, we’ll end the night with the title match and the Cinderella story of Daniel Bryan will come to an end as we crown a new WWE World … Heavyweight … Champion. Thank you, Renee.
Returning live, we head backstage once more and join Renee Young right now after seeing the replay earlier this evening. She smiles before welcoming her guest at this time … the WWE World Heavyweight Champion … Daniel Bryan. By his side, on his arm, is Brie Bella and she looks a little concerned tonight but Bryan has a smile on his face and the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on his shoulder. Renee says that Daniel Bryan went through so much to achieve his dream at WrestleMania 30, beating Triple H first and then overcoming Batista and Orton in the main event, but does he believe that he can do it all over again here tonight at Extreme Rules? Bryan smiles and then answers.

DANIEL BRYAN:
Renee, I understand your concerns but let me tell you something – I worked my butt off to win this WWE World Heavyweight Championship and I am willing to work twice as hard again if it means hanging onto this title. Tonight, I know I am going to finish the evening by facing the C.O.O. of this company, Triple H, he’ll probably have his two henchmen beside him as well in Randy Orton and Batista and scariest of all, he’ll have that witch Stephanie McMahon with him as well. Before that, I’ve got another match against an unknown opponent and quite frankly, if I know Triple H and Stephanie, it’ll be somebody who is going to push me right to the limit before I defend the title. But, you see Renee, the Authority and Evolution forget something – I overcame all of these factors at WrestleMania 30 and came out with this title and tonight, right here in New Jersey … right here with the “Yes!” movement in full voice, I will walk out as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. I don’t know how I’m going to do it, I don’t know what it’s gonna’ take but tonight, when the curtain comes down, Triple H will fail once again. He’s been trying to hold me down since Summerslam last year but he hasn’t succeeded yet and he won’t succeed tonight.

Bryan smiles to Renee before clutching the hand of his beautiful wife and guiding her away from the interview zone as Renee thanks him. Back at the announce desk, Michael Cole hypes up the size of the task in front of Bryan here tonight. A match against an unknown opponent followed by a WWE World Heavyweight Championship match against Triple H with no rules and no diaqualification – Lawler says he wants to believe in Bryan and the “Yes!” movement but he has a bad feeling about tonight; JBL declares that the Cinderella story will come to an end here tonight …

RIDE OF THE VALKYRIES
DANIEL BRYAN
WWE World Heavyweight Champion


A huge reception for the WWE World Heavyweight Champion as he walks out, title belt around his waist, and looks around the arena at the crowd who are on their feet. A broad smile on his face, Bryan, without Brie now, slowly raises his hands and leads the crowd … YES! YES! YES! YES! As Bryan sidesteps his way towards the ring and points to the rafters, the crowd follow his lead and the noise is deafening here. Can Daniel Bryan find a way to overcome the odds and retain his WWE World Heavyweight Championship here tonight? As Bryan salutes the crowd from inside the ring, his music fades and we await the identity of his first opponent here tonight …









SOMEBODIES GONNA’ GET THEIR ASS KICKED
MARK HENRY


The World’s Strongest Man is back here tonight – and is coming for Daniel Bryan! Snarling and growling, he walks towards the ring with a look of determination in his eyes; Henry knows that this could be a huge opportunity to insert himself squarely into the title picture himself somewhere down the line. As Henry approaches the ring, Bryan looks a little concerned as he eyes the huge behemoth coming towards him here. Jerry Lawler says that Bryan will be lucky to survive the first match never mind the WWE World Heavyweight Championship that follows as the referee checks both men and signals for the bell here tonight …

Quote:
SINGLES MATCH (Non-Title)
DANIEL BRYAN vs. MARK HENRY

As Bryan faces up to Henry, the World’s Strongest Man looks pleased here tonight and he is laughing at Bryan; clearly he thinks that he is going to inflict a big defeat on Bryan here tonight. However, as Henry jabs Bryan hard in the chest, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion refuses to accept the insulting trash talking from his opponent and responds with a shove in the big man’s chest. Henry responds in kind and shoves Bryan backwards but he rolls over and leaps up quickly to kick an advancing Henry hard in the side of the head. Roundhouse kicks to the hips and chest of Henry follow and Bryan’s fans holler “Yes!” with each shot. However, Henry catches Bryan’s foot with his arm and then throws Bryan down to the mat once more. As Bryan gets up, Henry mows him over with a big clothesline and this staggers the champion back to the corner where Henry hits a huge corner splash. BAM! As Bryan slides down the turnbuckles, Henry taunts the crowd and is clearly intent on forcing Bryan to forfeit the WWE World Heavyweight Championship here tonight.

From this moment on, Bryan is in real trouble and his chances of surviving this match tonight and then being in any kind of fit state to defend his title seem remote at best. With Henry intent on hurting him, Bryan has a world of pain coming and Henry dominates for a large portion of the next 5-6 minutes. However, Bryan, gutsy fighting champion that he is, continues to take the fight to Henry when he can and sometimes manages to counter and stagger back the behemoth Henry. Usually, Henry responds though and is able to curtail the attack before it can get going. It becomes clear that Henry is targeting the ribcage of Bryan and he delivers a series of backbreakers that leave Bryan rolling in pain outside the ring. As the action spills out, Henry makes use of the ring posts and steps to further inflict punishment on Bryan and it begins to appear academic; Lawler on commentary suggests that Bryan should tap out and just ensure his own survival for the title match he has following this. When Henry, after stopping another counter from Bryan, lifts Bryan high over his head and drops him over the top rope and down to the floor from about 12 feet in the air. Daniel writhes in pain, clutching his ribs, but Henry is unforgiving and rolls him back into the ring. He goes to lift Bryan for the World’s Strongest Slam but Bryan wriggles clear of it and refuses to give in.

Despite the frustration beginning to mount, Henry focuses and continues to pummel the WWE World Heavyweight Champion; he is doing the job that Stephanie McMahon clearly intended him to do. There is a glimmer of hope for Bryan when he uses a drop toe hold and sends Henry crashing into the bottom turnbuckle face first. Trying to fight back, Bryan launches another series of kicks, all well placed, but he continues to grip his ribs in pain as he does. When Bryan hits a drop kick as well, Henry tumbles through the ropes and lands on the outside; Bryan takes a breather and then hits the ropes, he rushes towards the ropes where Henry is stood and launches himself out of the ring … SUICIDE DIVE … Henry dodges it and Bryan collides with the barricade shoulder first. The crowd groan as Bryan writhes in pain again, this is not going well here tonight! As Henry recovers and rolls Bryan back into the ring, a huge “Daniel Bryan!” chant goes up as the WWE Universe try to rally him. However, Henry is determined to finish Bryan off and he rolls in after him …

WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!
HENRY HITS THE WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM ON DANIEL BRYAN!


How much punishment can Daniel Bryan take? Surely, this is all over here now, Mark Henry is going to get a huge win here over the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. He roars as he makes the cover on Bryan …

3 … No!

Unbelievably, Bryan kicks out!


The crowd pop for the kick out from Daniel Bryan; there is an amazement in the New Jersey crowd and they again chant Bryan’s name over and over as Henry roars in frustration. As Bryan recovers a little, Henry looks out of the ring and he heads out in the direction of his stare. Grabbing a steel chair, things become clear – Henry is about to take this to the extreme despite the fact that this is not supposed to be an Extreme Rules match here. As Henry holds the chair, he has an evil glint in his eyes whilst Bryan struggles up to his knees. The crowd are trying to roar to Bryan to be careful but it looks as if Henry is going to waffle him with the chair. As Bryan spins, Henry swings the chair … Bryan ducks it! The force of Henry’s swing takes the chair into the ropes and he drops the chair as it bounces off the ropes. Spinning round, Henry looks back to Bryan who has taken a second to compose himself …

RUNNING BUSAIKU KNEE!
BRYAN HITS HENRY WITH HIS RUNNING KNEE STRIKE!


The crowd cheer wildly as Bryan hooks the leg of Mark Henry, has he done enough here tonight?

WINNER: Daniel Bryan (11:41)
As the referee’s hand comes down for the 3, the crowd pop for another big hard-fought victory tonight for Daniel Bryan; however, as we know, the job is only half done. Henry, who dominated the second half of that match and really brought his big-match game tonight, looks frustrated as he sits in the middle of the ring and he curses to himself that he allowed Bryan to get out of his control and hit the Busaiku Knee right there. As Bryan staggers to his feet, he leads the crowd in a “Yes!” chant and this appears to anger Henry who gets to his feet and spins Bryan round … WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM! HENRY HITS THE WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM ON THE WWE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! The crowd boo and jeer but the damage is done; Bryan is laid out in the ring and the World’s Strongest Man kneels over him with a look of intensity in his eyes. As he rolls out of the ring, the crowd chant at Henry … “Asshole! Asshole!” … Henry laughs but nods his head in recognition of the chant before making the decision to enter the ring again. He grabs the chair that he attempted to use at the end of the match and throws it down to the mat in a temper. Despite the pleas of the WWE Universe, he drags Bryan off the mat … WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM ON THE CHAIR! A SECOND STRIKE FROM HENRY TO BRYAN HERE! Boos ring out as Henry again rolls out of the ring and begins to walk away … “That’s what I do!” he screams at the WWE Universe as they complain at him, he does not appear to have any regrets over his actions here tonight.

KING OF KINGS
TRIPLE H
with Batista, Randy Orton & Stephanie McMahon


What appropriate timing! As Henry leaves Bryan wasted in the middle of the ring, the appearance of the Game causes huge heat in the arena as it appears he is simply coming out here tonight to pick the carcass of Bryan off the canvas and end his reign as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. As Evolution and Stephanie pass Mark Henry, HHH nods his head in recognition of Henry’s actions before continuing his entrance to the ring. Approaching the ring, Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton laugh and Michael Cole suggests that their issues from earlier in the night appear resolved here. As Hunter stands in amusement on the apron, looking down on Bryan, he signals that the WWE World Heavyweight Championship is coming back to the Authority before getting in the ring and demanding that the referee ring the bell and starts the match. Protesting, the official tries to get Daniel Bryan back on his feet but the C.O.O. drags him away and reminds him that his job could be on the line if he does not ring the bell and start the match here. Reluctance on his face, the referee realises he has no choice and informs Bryan of the match and its impending start … and then signals for the bell.

WWE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
EXTREME RULES NO DISQUALIFICATION MATCH
DANIEL BRYAN © vs. TRIPLE H (w/Batista, Randy Orton & Stephanie McMahon)

As the match begins, Triple H is stood over Bryan who is on the mat struggling from the heinous attack from Mark Henry and is grinning a wide smile. Mockingly, he raises his hands and points to the rafters and mouths “Yes!” to which the crowd respond with a “No!” chant. However, HHH is laughing at it and he watches Bryan struggling to his knees. As the crowd back Bryan, Hunter drags the champion up and he kicks him in the gut, sudden attack here from the challenger. He positions Bryan’s head between his thighs and sets himself up …

PEDIGREE!
TRIPLE H HITS THE PEDIGREE!


The crowd groan in shock, that is surely that – a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion is set to be crowned. As Batista, Orton and Stephanie look on from outside the ring, a huge grin on Steph’s face, HHH drops down and hooks the leg. Here we go, new champion …

No!

The crowd roar as Bryan somehow kicks out!


Hunter looks on in shock as Daniel Bryan kicks out of the Pedigree and appears determined that he will not sacrifice the WWE World Heavyweight Championship! The Game argues at the referee and accuses him of not counting quickly enough but the referee grows a pair and tells Triple H to back off him. Annoyed at not winning the title there and then, Hunter again grabs Bryan and signals that enough is enough, he sets again for a second Pedigree as Stephanie urges him on. Can he hit the Pedigree for a second time?

PEDIGREE!
A SECOND PEDIGREE TO DANIEL BRYAN!


With a smug look on his face, Triple H once again hooks the leg of Bryan and looks for the title …

3 … No!

BRYAN KICKS OUT AGAIN!


HOW HAS DANIEL BRYAN KICKED OUT OF THE PEDIGREE TWICE? The crowd are shocked, they cannot believe it either, but nowhere near the level of shock on Triple H’s face. He is livid and berates the official once more, he gets right in the face of the official and then grabs him by the collar and throws him over the top rope with a fit of rage. He signals to Stephanie McMahon and she beckons to the stage area … After a few seconds, Scott Armstrong, the referee who re-appeared at WrestleMania XXX and almost cost Bryan the title, comes running down to the ring and Triple H once more goes for the cover on Bryan …

No!

Quick count from Armstrong … but Bryan kicks out again!


Triple H cannot believe what is happening here, how is Bryan able to continuously survive this onslaught? TWO Pedigrees, TWO World’s Strongest Slams – one on a steel chair – and a brutal match with Mark Henry … and Daniel Bryan still refuses to lie down. The new referee focuses HHH on the task in hand again and he grabs the steel chair that is still in the ring. This is, after all, an Extreme Rules match for the title. Triple H slams the chair down on the mat and he grabs Bryan once more, here we go … a third Pedigree on the steel chair? NO! Bryan somehow finds the strength within to lift HHH up and hit a Back Body Drop to the delight of the crowd who are roaring him on now. As HHH gets to his feet in the corner, Bryan rushes over at him and hits a running leg lariat in the corner of the ring before hitting kick after kick after kick to the upper body and thighs of The Game! As the crowd back the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, he seems to find a second wind now and hits a big roundhouse kick to the head of Hunter before making a cover of his own …

No!

Slower count from Amrstrong … and HHH kicks out!


As Bryan stands and tries to get his head back into this match properly, he looks down and sees the steel chair on the mat. He picks it up and advances on the referee who is protesting his innocence here but Bryan is not prepared to accept his excuses. Armstrong backs away towards the ropes and tries to go through them and away from Bryan but he grabs him by the collar of his shirt. BAM! Daniel Bryan smacks the chair across the back of the official and the crowd again cheer with delight … YES LOCK! DANIEL BRYAN PUTS SCOTT ARMSTRONG IN A YES LOCK! This official is getting what many people feel he deserves here and is tapping out and squealing as Bryan pulls back and refuses to release … until HHH attacks him with a kick to the ribs that Henry injured earlier. As Armstrong rolls out of the ring and slumps to the floor, we have no official now and the match takes a brutal twist as HHH smashes Bryan with the discarded chair across the back several times. With Bryan now in pain once again, HHH is ruthless as Stephanie screams at him to hurt the champion over and over. With the title now in serious jeopardy, HHH shows no signs of relenting as he batters Bryan before tossing the chair away. With no referee, a cover is pointless right now so HHH tosses Bryan through the ropes to the outside and then goes on the attack.

Smashing the champions head into the announce desk several times, HHH begins to then target the ribs of Bryan as he drops him over the edge of the announce desk as well. Pulling the steel steps loose, HHH then uses the steps to crash it into the shoulders of Bryan and he is taking a huge beating here as Triple H seems to be inevitably inching towards becoming the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Despite the chants from the crowd, Bryan has no answer to this and Batista and Orton watch on – not needed by the challenger. Slowly and methodically picking Bryan apart, HHH – also in his second match of the evening – has this exactly where he wants it as he lifts Bryan up and slams him on top of the announce desk where Cole, JBL and Lawler are stood. The announce team protest but HHH does not care a jot and climbs up to set for the Pedigree once again on top of the announce desk. He sets up but – I’m sure you know what is coming – Bryan counters again with a Back Body Drop and HHH smashes through the Spanish announce table instead! CRASH! The wood splinters around The Game as the crowd go crazy again – “Holy sh*t!” they chant – and Bryan staggers away from the announce desk with a chance to recover a little.

Daniel Bryan crawls into the ring and slumps against the corner, things are really taking their toll on him here tonight now and it seems as if he has to get through hell just to come away with his title in tact here tonight. However, his reversal on HHH there has bought him some time and it seems as if this is his chance to survive tonight. However, as Bryan tries to recover, Stephanie, a look of concern on her face as she moves away from her fallen husband, orders Batista and Randy Orton to get in the ring and take out Bryan. The two members of Evolution look confused at first but follow Steph’s orders and slide into the ring as Steph returns to helping her husband out of the wreckage of the Spanish announce table. As Batista and Orton advance on Bryan, the crowd boo and jeer them but they look down on him and this looks serious now for Bryan. HHH, struggling but back to his feet, slides into the ring and yells at Batista and Orton to attack … a second time … “Attack him, damnit!” yells HHH but then Orton and Batista fix Triple H with a glare … and shake their heads!

The crowd pop – it seems that HHH’s actions earlier in the night have not been forgotten by Batista and Randy Orton after all! As HHH looks on stunned, Batista and then Orton step through the ropes and drop off the mat before backing away from the ring and into the aisle. Triple H and Stephanie are livid now; HHH in the ring is demanding that Batista and Orton return, Stephanie is stood at the foot of the ramp warning them that they’re making a terrible mistake. However, it appears that as quickly as Evolution were re-established on RAW a couple of weeks ago, they have fallen apart once more here tonight as well! Triple H is enraged but his attention is stuck on the desertion of his Evolution team-mates …

RUNNING BUSAIKU KNEE!
BRYAN STUNS HHH WITH THE BUSAIKU KNEE!


The crowd are going berserk now as Daniel Bryan hits the Running Knee out of nowhere! However, as he hooks the leg, we see there is no referee still so Bryan goes to the top rope … DIVING HEADBUTT! The WWE World Heavyweight Champion is pulling out the last reserves of energy here tonight to find a way to retain the title …

YES LOCK!
DANIEL BRYAN LOCKS HHH IN THE YES LOCK!


Bryan has HHH locked in the “Yes” Lock and shows no signs of releasing it despite HHH grasping the rope. Under Extreme Rules of course, Bryan cannot be DQ’d for refusing to release the hold but there is no referee in the ring anyway right now! As the crowd roar their approval, Stephanie makes her way into the ring and grabs Bryan by the hair and drags him off her husband to break the hold. However, this is the time for Bryan’s wife to arrive … Brie Bella tackles Stephanie to the mat and they roll under the ropes and to the outside. THE ORIGINAL REFEREE ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING! As Bryan watches Brie taking Stephanie down, he smiles and then leads the crowd in a huge “YES!” chant once again as he waits … and waits …

ANOTHER BUSAIKU KNEE!
BRYAN TAKES TRIPLE H OUT ONCE AGAIN!


Daniel Bryan is on a roll now as he hooks the leg of the C.O.O. of the WWE … the husband of the Principal Owner … the 14-time WWE Champion … the “Cerebral Assassin” … the referee drops down to make the count …

WINNER: Daniel Bryan (14:45)

Daniel Bryan retains the WWE World Heavyweight Championship!
An explosion of noise as Daniel Bryan, somehow, has retained his WWE World Heavyweight Championship in his first PPV defence since winning the title at WrestleMania 30. As the crowd jump up and down with delight, Bryan is absolutely out on his knees and does not appear to be able to focus on the fact that he has retained his title. However, the crowd are going wild and will him on; staggering, Bryan gets to his feet and leads a huge “Yes!” chant before holding his title up high. Opposite, Triple H is stunned and is staring out of the ropes up the ramp at Batista and Orton, the men who deserted him here tonight, who have looks of satisfaction on their faces at a job well done. Why have Batista and Randy Orton turned their backs on Triple H tonight? How has Daniel Bryan been able to find a way to retain his WWE World Heavyweight Championship? The crowd don’t appear to care about how Bryan has done it; the important thing is simply that he has done it. As the PPV closes, Bryan, beaten up and hurt, holds the WWE World Heavyweight Championship up high – he is still the WWE World Heavyweight Champion to the delight of the fans here tonight.
