The scene opens with a view of Michael Cole dressed in his usual suit an tie.
Cole: Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Michael Cole, and I'd like to welcome you to this very special forum where we are told there will be an announcement made that will very well change the landscape of the WWE... forever. It has been kept close to only Vince McMahon and the COO Triple H. So, without further adue... Triple H.
Triple H: Thanks Michael. Today is a big day and coming hot off the heels of a huge WrestleMania I can't be any more excited.
Cole: Well I can certainly tell you that not only was WrestleMania one for the books, but everyone has been talking about this announcement. Is Vince retiring? Is Triple H retiring? Was the WWE sold? Did Vince buy another company? So many ideas have been thrown around and the buzz on social media as been at an all time high. Honestly, I don't even know what it is and I'm just as excited as the millions of fans watching right now.
Triple H: Well we kept it between Vince and I because it is big. Some may feel like we are taking a step back, but some times taking that step back also moves you forward. When the brand split between RAW and SmackDown! ended it wasn't abrupt. It slowly faded away. Superstars began showing up on both shows. Eventually we even merged the two main titles together. This idea was great. It gave us one, solid world champion that everyone wanted to go after and take that title from.
But unfortunately, it also closed the door for a lot of people. Let's be honest, there's only room for so many people at the top. And if you don't make it, you may feel like it's "the machines" fault, but honestly, it's a lot of things. I want to open the door for more people and give them chances they won't normally receive. That's why I am here to announce that tonight on RAW, which will be a special 3-hour RAW, because we are moving it back to 2 hours, we will hold a draft. I will manage RAW like I always have. The GM for Smackdown will be announced in the first 15 minutes.
The draft will mainly consist of those moving to Smackdown, whoever isn't drafted will be a RAW roster member. And to fill out the Smackdown roster I am proud to announce that every single NXT superstar will be moving to the blue brand. They all have grown so much in the time they have been on the network and I am more than proud of what we have accomplished. But it's time we move forward. Bringing them all up creates new scenarios, rivalries, and endless possibilities.
Cole: So, we are hitting the reset button as of right now?
Triple H: If a reset button moves you forward, then yes. This is a bold move but we are doing it because... let's face it.. It's what's best for business.
Cole: How will the championships manage after the brand split returns?
Triple H: The United States championship will return to Smackdown. And I respect that Kevin Owens is the current NXT World Champion, and there is no World Champion for Smackdown. So therefore, he will be the WWE World Champion as of tonight. The same goes for Sasha Banks, she will become the WWE Womens Champion. And lastly, Blake and Murphy are the WWE World Tag Champions.
Cole: This is quite frankly a shocking announcement, I am excited to see where we go from here. Out of everything possible I would never have guessed that we would return to the brand split era of World Wrestling Entertainment.
Triple H: Oh and one last thing, this Friday on Smackdown you will get a taste of some new talent I am bringing in. You won't want to miss it. Kevin Owens better be ready.
Cole: And just like that you leave us with the biggest teaser of the year.
Triple H: Hey, I'm ready for the future. And trust me, the future is bright.
The show fades to the WWE logo...
