WWE: Era of Awesome

It’s been an incredibly long time since I’ve written a show, started a thread, and its been just about as long since I’ve been an avid wrestling fan, so before we begin I apologise for any rustiness or lack of recent-time wrestling knowledge I may have shown. I have spent the past few weeks getting back into an obsession I shared with all of you. With my return to the watching of wrestling, I felt it only fitting to return to the Be the Booker forum. And so we have this thread, the Era of Awesome. I've been planning this for like a month and I have the majority of the RAW shows leading up to the first PPV written. NXT Season 2 and WWE Superstars? Let's just pretend they never happened for the sake of this thread.

WWE: Era of Awesome

The “Era of PG”, something the majority of older wrestling fans failed to truly enjoy, it turned former-wrestling maniacs away from the sport and brought ratings down steadily as the days went by. The only true success was the constant increase in John Cena merchandise thanks to the kids of the WWE. Something had to give, wrestling had to return to the heights of time long past. It was time to move forward, time to move forward to an era of awesome.

"Era of Awesome comes into full effect, expect some serious changes in this respect." Dunno, it sounds pretty sexy.

Thanks CHAMPviaDQ for sig and avy

Re: Bartman and LegendaryBazinga Present: WWE - Era of Awesome

RAW Preview
After the fatal effects of last night’s exciting pay-per-view, Bret “The Hitman” Hart will be in attendance to explain his lack of appearance last night and to address the NXT and the state of RAW after the recent attacks over the past few weeks.

Also, RAW will hit Bridgeport with a new WWE Champion! Thanks to the help of Wade Barrett and the rest of the NXT, Sheamus now holds the prestigious WWE Championship, and he will be sure to make an appearance in Connecticut.

After losing his WWE Championship last night, John Cena will be in action against an as-yet unknown competitor. Cena will be sure to be in a rough condition after last night’s brutal events.

With the next Pay-Per-View, WWE Money in the Bank being less than a month away, you can be sure to expect details on the format of this exciting, groundbreaking show and there will sure to be matches announced for the big show.

All this and more when WWE Raw rolls into Bridgeport, Connecticut tonight on the USA Network at 9/8ct

Thanks Dave for the comment. RAW will be posted hopefully before the end of tonight.

Re: Bartman and LegendaryBazinga Present: WWE - Era of Awesome

I wrote this show a month ago, I took a look over it there and I can see even now that it is quite rusty, but it gets the job done in terms of building towards MITB. Enjoy.

WWE Raw – 21st June 2010 – Bridgeport, Connecticut

A video package of the events of Fatal 4 Way plays. We see the epic Chris Jericho/Jason Bourne match, The Miz retaining his championship and of course Sheamus’ runaway victory in the WWE Title match. The package ends with a broken title-less John Cena staring at the screen. After the video package plays we cut to the RAW opening video with Burn it to the Ground by Nickelback playing. After this we head to the Arena at Harbor Yard as RAW begins.


Michael Cole: Hello everybody and welcome to another edition of Monday Night Raw! I am Michael Cole joined by Jerry “The King” Lawler here in Bridgeport, Connecticut fresh off the heels of an exciting Fatal Four Way PPV

Jerry Lawler: That it was and we have so many questions to be answered tonight

Return of the Hitman hits and the fans buzz with excitement as The Hitman, Bret Hart appears at the top of the entrance ramp.

Michael Cole: And isn’t that just the man to provide them! It’s our General Manager, Bret “The Hitman” Hart. Someone who was surprisingly absent last night, but I think we now know why, he looks pretty rough after the attacks last week

Bret looks badly hurt and limps his way to the ring with a crutch; he eventually gets in and requests a microphone. He ushers the crowd to calm down and there is silence as Bret holds the microphone to his mouth.

Bret Hart: Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Monday Night RAW.

The crowd break into cheers, as Hart pauses for a moment.

Bret Hart: First of all, may I apologise for not appearing at last night’s show, as you can see the NXT rookies have left me in quite a pickle. After demand, after demand, after demand however, I am still standing and guess who still do not have RAW contracts? That’s freakin’ right people. If the NXT guys think they can push the RAW General Manager, Bret “The Hitman” Hart around, they got another thing coming.

The crowd bursts into applause. The hatred of the NXT rookies in this arena is extremely clear.

Bret Hart: Now, I have taken special precautions to ensure that these NXT rookies do not enter the building tonight, they are not contracted superstars and therefore there is no place for them in this ring or backstage.

Bret pauses for a moment, collecting himself and deciding what to say next.

Bret Hart: If the NXT guys think they can do this to me and then receive contracts? They’re wrong, they’ve got the wrong guy. I will make sure that these guys NEVER get a shot in this company.

NO CHANCE bursts onto the PA system as the Bridgeport crowd burst into excitement at the thought of the chairman being in attendance. However, no one appears at the bottom of the stage, instead the titantron shows a video feed of the chairman.

Mr. McMahon: Hello Bret. I’m afraid I have some bad news for you. You see Bret, I’ve been pretty impressed with the NXT rookies as of late, I’ve found there actions umm… pretty damn enjoyable. Now since, I, Vincent Kennedy McMahon, own this company, and have the overall rule in any decision to be made, I have decided to reinstate Wade Barrett’s contract.

The crowd erupts into boos as the chairman looks on.


Mr McMahon pauses for a moment, staring down at the crowd from the titantron.

Mr. McMahon: I have also decided to offer contracts to the remaining NXT rookies and from here on out, they will also be RAW Superstars. Thank you very much Bret

The feed then cuts out abruptly and the cameras return to an enraged Bret Hart.

Bret Hart: Well thanks to the unexpected signing of the NXT rookies to my brand has brought about an interesting idea for tonight’s main event. The NXT Season 1 winner, Wade Barrett will participate in this match. He will face a man who has been on the receiving end of attacks for weeks by Barrett and his lackeys, the former WWE Champion, John Cena!

The crowd goes into frenzy with chants of “CENA SUCKS!” and “LETS GO CENA!” filling the air.

Bret Hart: But I will not allow the NXT rookies to take me for a fool. If ANY of the rookies interrupt Wade’s match tonight, or even make an appearance, all of you, every single one of you, including Wade Barrett, will be fired on the spot, and this time there will be no going back, I’ll make sure of that!

Michael Cole: Wow! John Cena and Wade Barrett, tonight! This could be a match for the ages, no interruptions, no interferences. Tonight we found out what Wade Barrett can do.

Bret Hart: Now, there is one more thing to discuss here tonight, and that is the prospect of our next big pay-per-view event!

The crowd pops

Bret Hart: Yes, on July 18th in the main event match-up, the aptly titled WWE Money in the Bank PPV will see a Money in the Bank match with superstars from both RAW and SmackDown battling for a title shot of their choosing at any point.

The crowd lets out a huge pop

Bret Hart: This Money in the Bank matchup will feature eight superstars, four from RAW, four from SmackDown. And you know what Money in the Bank matches mean for RAW! QUALIFIERS!

The crowd pop again

Bret Hart: Now the first qualifiers will take place on Friday night on SmackDown, but that is none of my concern. For next Monday our first two qualifiers will take place. These matches will be announced later on tonight. The fourth and final qualifier will be decided three weeks from tonight on the RAW before Money in the Bank. Any superstar who wishes to have a shot at getting into the match will have the chance, for there will be a huge BATTLE ROYAL for the final RAW spot!

The crowd give a huge pop

Bret Hart: That means that absolutely any RAW superstar who wants a shot at the Money in the Bank will get the chance. Now back to tonight, as I was saying, we will see John Cena battle someone who has become something of a nemesis to him lately, in Wade Barrett! But there will be another big time match-up to come tonight. Tonight, the WWE Champion, Sheamus *heat* will be in action! And …

Written in My Face hits to a mixed reaction and the new WWE Champion, Sheamus appears at the top of the entrance ramp, carrying his new title.

Sheamus: Well, well, well Bret “The Hitman” Hart, it truly is an honour… Now move along and allow the new Dubya-Dubya-E Champion to stand in his ring, the ring of a true champion.

This causes the crowd to exert strong heat on the champion. He takes it in his stride and laughs under his breath.

Bret Hart: Not so fast, Sheamus. You should be backstage kissing the NXT rookies’ asses for if it wasn’t for them, you would not be carrying that championship. You have yet to prove yourself as a true champion. That is why Sheamus, tonight, as Mr. John Cena is in action against one Wade Barrett, tonight here in Connecticut, you will face…

YOU CAN’T SEE ME hits the PA system to a hugely mixed reaction as the former champion John Cena stands behind Sheamus.

John Cena: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold on just a minute Bret, now I’d love to take on Wade Barrett here tonight, and prove that without six other men, he is useless on his own, but I’ve got bigger things to deal with. Things like getting back the championship that was stolen from me last night at Fatal Four Way! So how bout it Sheamus, right here tonight, The Irate Irishman, the Human Jar of Mayonnaise defends his WWE Championship against John Cena and the Cenation. Now how bout that for a match?

The crowd pops, excited at the prospect of a championship match here on RAW.

Sheamus: Now, now John Cena, you don’t just get a rematch like that, your gonna have to prove your worth to get a shot at my dubya-dubya-e championship!

Bret Hart: Mr. Cena, I know you are absolutely desperate to win back the championship you unfairly lost last night, and you will get your rematch Cena, but your gonna have to wait. July 18th, at the WWE Money in the Bank Pay-Per-View, Sheamus will defend his WWE Championship, against one John Cena! How do you like that?

This generates a hugely mixed reaction from the crowd, with more chants of “CENA SUCKS” Sheamus throws his arms in the air, disappointed at having to make his first defence against the man who has held this title more than anyone else in the past five years.

Bret Hart: Now as I was saying before I was interrupted, tonight, you John Cena will face off against Wade Barrett in tonight’s main event. But the WWE Champion will also be in action tonight! Sheamus will face off against “The Viper”, RANDY ORTON!

The crowd gives a huge pop at Orton

Bret Hart: Thank you very much ladies and gentlemen and enjoy the show!

Return of the Hitman hits as Bret leaves the ring and the cameras close in on a Sheamus/John Cena stare down, with Sheamus raising his WWE Championship high above his head as we cut to a commercial break.


Michael Cole: Wow, what an explosive start to RAW! Ladies and gentlemen, tonight we will see John Cena face off against Wade Barrett! And also tonight, Randy Orton will battle the WWE Champion, Sheamus!

Jerry Lawler: It’s heating up to be a truly excellent night! But you know what’s gonna be another excellent night, Cole? Money in the Bank!

Michael Cole: That’s right, King, we are less than one month away from our next big Pay-Per-View, and as announced just before the commercial break, the main event will be an 8-man Money in the Bank ladder match featuring four RAW superstars and four SmackDown superstars, battling for a title contract, useable at any time!

Jerry Lawler: And also confirmed is that starting on Friday night’s SmackDown, Money in the Bank qualification matches will begin!

Michael Cole: It’s gonna be one hell of a night King, with the WWE Championship also being on the line, with the new champion, Sheamus defending his title as John Cena gets his rematch! I just can’t wait for it! But that’s still just under a month away, we have lots more RAW action to enjoy before then


The United States Champion, The Miz walks down the ramp to a somewhat mixed reaction, edging towards heat rather than a pop. He stares at the crowd and then slides into the ring raising his United States championship.

The Miz: Last night, I proved once again that I am the greatest superstar in WWE history by successfully defending my United States Title against R-TRUTH!

Crowd pops for R-Truth

The Miz: And now right here tonight I aim to obliterate young Evan Bourne. He defeated Chris Jericho last night, but you know what? I could beat Jericho in my sleep! What’s an old has been like him still doing in the business anyway? Am I right? Haha

The crowd give Miz huge heat for tarnishing the name of Chris Jericho

The Miz: Would you all be quiet? Tonight is not about Jericho anyway, tonight is about the United States Champion. That’s right tonight is about The Miz!

Michael Cole: Well, you gotta love The Miz! He’s proven time and time again that he deserves to be recognised as one of the top men here in the WWE.

The Miz: Because I’m The Miz and I’m … AWESO-


The crowd pops as Bourne speeds down to the ring and slides in, staring The Miz down as the match gets underway.

Match One
United States Champion, The Miz vs. Evan Bourne

The match goes back and forth for about seven minutes, with The Miz beginning to gain the upper hand, with Evan Bourne being pretty worn out from his match the previous night, The Miz looks to take advantage. He drags Bourne to the corner and begins to beat on him, offering repeated blows to the face.

As the match draws to a close, The Miz looks to hit Bourne with his textbook finisher, the Skull-Crushing Finale, but Bourne manages to reverse the move into a roll-up pin, almost getting the three count. He then jumps to his feet and clotheslines The Miz repeatedly; he then hits a huge DDT and then jumps onto the second rope and flips back on The Miz, again only getting a two count. He gets back up and considers going Airborne, but decides to perform a standing moonsault first, taking the wind out of The Miz and leaving him in an extremely vulnerable position. Evan Bourne heads top rope and gets ready to pull off his finisher.

Bourne reaches the top and looks down on The Miz. He then jumps and successfully connects with his version of the shooting star press, Airborne. The crowd erupt as Bourne rolls Miz over for the 1, 2, and 3!

Winner (via Pinfall): Evan Bourne

Michael Cole: Another excellent win for young Evan Bourne here tonight! He defeated Jericho last night and tonight he has defeated the United States Champion, The Miz.

As Evan picks himself back up to his feet he is dealt a horrific blow to the back of the head by CHRIS JERICHO. Jericho begins beating down on Evan with his fists and feet. The Miz rolls out of the ring and leaves before Jericho can do anything to him. Jericho demands a microphone and then begins to speak

Chris Jericho: How dare you make a fool of me Evan Bourne. How dare you. I have been around in this business a hell of a long time and never have I came across such a lucky bastard. You are riding by in this business on luck alone! Well you know what; you will ride on luck no longer. How bout this Evan, July 18th - Money in the Bank, Chris Jericho faces Evan Bourne in the big rematch.

Chris pauses

Chris Jericho: No disqualifications

Jericho drops the mic as BREAK THE WALLS hits.

Michael Cole: Oh my god! This is a side of Jericho I am just so disappointed to see. Evan Bourne defeated him fair and square last night, and just look at this.

Jerry Lawler: There is one good thing to come of this Michael. We get to see Bourne and Jericho go at it again!

Michael Cole: Should Bourne accept the match, Money in the Bank truly is hotting up to be one hell of a pay-per-view!

Jerry Lawler: I can’t wait!


We return backstage in the locker room with Alicia Fox carrying her new Divas championship. Eve Torres soon walks in and hugs Alicia

Eve: Congratulations on your win last night Alicia! I’m sure you love having that title around your waist

Alicia Fox: Aww thank you Eve! That means alo...

Eve cuts Alicia Fox off and grabs her by the throat

Eve: Now listen here! You stole that championship from me last night. I want a rematch right here tonight!

Alicia shoves Eve off her

Alicia Fox: Well listen here Eve, I won this title fair and square last night at Fatal 4 Way. You were the champion and you lost the title. If you want another shot at this title, you’re going to have to earn it!

We see a new found anger in Eve’s face as she grabs Alicia and rams her into the lockers. She throws her onto the ground and begins to kick her repeatedly.

After finishing her brutal attack, Eve picks up the Divas championship, laughing uncontrollably and then throws it down at Alicia as we cut back to Cole and King.

Michael Cole: Oh my god King! I didn’t expect a side like this from Eve!

Jerry Lawler: You know what, I don’t normally condone actions like that, but Alicia truly stole the Divas title from Eve last night!

Michael Cole: That’s right King let’s take a look back at last night, as Alicia stole the title.

We see a small replay video of the ending to last night’s Divas Championship match, with Eve having Maryse down for the pinfall and Alicia throwing Eve out of the ring and capitalizing for the victory.

We then cut backstage, where Josh Mathews is standing with Randy Orton.

Josh Mathews: Randy Orton, we are just moments away from your HUGE match up here tonight with Sheamus, and I have to ask, after the tough match up last night, are you in a physical state to compete tonight?

Randy Orton: I am the Viper. Sheamus will not stand in my way in my goal of reaching the top of the WWE Mountain.

Huge pop for Orton

Josh Mathews: And speaking of last night Randy, last night at Fatal Four Way you competed in the WWE Championship match, coming up short. Sheamus took advantage of the situation and capitalised, how do you feel after failing to get the W?

Randy Orton: Well how do you think I feel? Sheamus may hold the title right now, but you have my word it will be a very short reign, for once I get my title shot, the title shot I deserve, in a one-on-one match, there will be no mistakes!

Josh Mathews: Thank you for your time, Randy, and good luck in your match tonight!

Randy stares at Josh and then turns to face the camera, making his pose as we cut back to Cole and King as we prepare for the next match up.

Michael Cole: Well Orton does not look quite 100% now does he? After such an enthralling match, we have to question the ability of these two to put on the show they almost always succeed in putting on.

Jerry Lawler: I don’t think so Cole, these guys are out every night wrestling, when they aren’t on TV shows they are at house shows, giving their all for the fans. Sure the match last night was tough, but these guys know what they are doing, they put their bodies on the line almost every day of the year. We are in for one hell of a match, I guarantee it!

WRITTEN IN MY FACE hits as the WWE Champion stands tall at the top of the entrance ramp. He struts down the ramp, pointing to his title and taunting the WWE fans. He slides into the ring and holds his WWE Championship high, awaiting his opponent.

VOICES hits as The Viper makes his way to the top of the ramp. The crowd let out a huge pop for their favourite, Randy Orton. He smiles and poses for the crowd before making his way slowly and casually down the ramp, pointing to Sheamus’ title and signalling that soon, it will be his. He then gets into the ring and stares down Sheamus as the contest gets set to begin.

Match Two
WWE Champion, Sheamus vs. Randy Orton

The match sees neither man truly gain the momentum for much of the match. We see very much back and forth stuff with Randy coming close on numerous occasions to pulling off his vicious RKO. The crowd are on the side of The Viper, cheering him on violently, pulling for their favourite. It looks like it will be Orton who will take the match as he begins to gain some momentum, pulling off numerous clotheslines followed by a well-executed full nelson slam. With Sheamus down and out, Randy gets himself pumped and ready, getting into position, punching the mat, awaiting Sheamus’ arise. As Sheamus pulls himself to his feet and turns around, Randy hits him with a vicious RKO!! He goes for the pinfall 1-2-3...NO! Sheamus had his foot on the rope and so the match must carry on.

Randy continues to gain momentum, trying hard to wear down his opponent with multiple holds and suplexes. He sees his opportunity with the chance for a punt to the head, and gets set to take it, but as he runs towards Sheamus, the Champion ducks and then rolls Orton up for a quick pin, holding onto the tights for leverage 1..2…NO! Randy Orton breaks free as Sheamus gets himself back to his feet. He looks down at Orton angrily. He starts to stomp at Randy repeatedly, before pulling him back to his feet. He hits a flurry of right and left hands, but suddenly Orton dodges one and then drops Sheamus with a huge EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! The crowd pop as Orton starts to shake the ropes in excitement as the momentum swings towards his way. He then slides down to the mat and locks in a chinlock. He holds this for awhile, leaving Sheamus breathless. He tries to choke Sheamus out but slowly, Sheamus starts to pull himself to a vertical base and starts to elbow Orton. Sheamus then delivers a huge DDT reversal, driving Orton head first into the mat.

The match continues for a few minutes longer, with Sheamus looking in full control. The WWE Champion has Orton on the mat, stomping at him repeatedly. He awaits Orton to get to his feet, and as he does he hits a huge clothesline which takes Orton to the mat. Slowly Orton gets to his feet and Sheamus tries to hit another clothesline, but Orton ducks and hits a huge swinging neckbreaker, taking Sheamus to the floor. Orton is now pumped up, and he starts to slam his fists off the mat. The crowd are going crazy, knowing what is coming up next. As Sheamus slowly gets to his feet, Orton anticipates. Finally, Sheamus gets to his feet and Orton runs at him. He goes to hit the RKO, but Sheamus slides out of the way and takes Orton down to the mat, using the ropes and tights for leverage! Sheamus is going to steal this one!! 1…2…3!! Sheamus steals it.

Winner: WWE Champion, Sheamus (by Pinfall)

Sheamus slips out of the ring with his title, holding it high above his head as The Viper looks on angrily, knowing he has been cheated out of victory in this match.

Michael Cole: The WWE Champion, someone who is supposed to be a role model for the young fans of this great company, just cheated Randy Orton out of a win!

Jerry Lawler: A wins a win Cole, it’s just that simple!

We close in on Randy Orton, getting angry in the ring as we cut to a commercial break.


We return from the commercials with the NXT rookies, standing tall in the centre of the ring, with Wade Barrett standing a few inches in front of them, signalling his supremacy.

Wade Barrett: Well look at this, it seems us NXT boys have got ourselves some WWE contracts! Thank you very much Mr. McMahon.

The crowd boo, which pumps Barrett up

Wade Barrett: Peasants, peasants, peasants. Here in this ring, stand seven WWE superstars, seven members of the RAW roster. We have proved our point over the past few weeks that we mean business. We as a team, the NXT, are taking over this brand; we are taking over this company. We have proved that we are here to stay, but that was only the beginning. Tonight, I face the ex-WWE Champion, John Cena. This is a man who we, the NXT, supposedly cost the WWE title last night.

The smark members of the crowd pop loudly, showing their appreciation.

Wade Barrett: Well you know what I think? I think John Cena needs to stop looking for someone to blame, and look to himself. He is no longer the champion he once was, he is PAST IT.

Another pop from some of the members of the crowd, but they are drowned out from the heat of the Cena marks.

Wade Barrett: Well John Cena, you have had your turn at the top of the ladder in the WWE. It’s now time for you to get off that high horse of yours and let someone else get their chance. For in case you all may have forgotten, in winning the NXT, I am guaranteed a WWE title shot at any Pay-Per-View I choose. And I shall be using this shot wisely. John Cena will get his final chance to win back the gold at Money in the Bank. But after that, it’s my time to shine.

Mixed reaction as Wade Barrett looks on at the crowd. In this pause, the crowd take the chance to begin chanting “Daniel Bryan!”

Wade Barrett: He is gone and he aint ever coming back. You disrespect the NXT and you are no longer welcome in the WWE home.

This causes only the chants to get louder. Wade shakes his head as he passes the microphone onto Michael Tarver

Michael Tarver: Tonight, on behalf of the NXT, I would like to apologise to one of the men we caused a great deal of damage, and that is the RAW General Manager, Bret Hart. All those attacks were for the greater cause, that being WWE contracts, and now that we have them, we would like to start a healthy relationship.

Tarver pauses for a second as the crowd give him heat

Michael Tarver: Who the hell am I kidding, screw him.

Tarver laughs as the crowd give him huge heat. He throws the microphone back to Wade Barrett.

Wade Barrett: *laughing* Well said Tarver, well said indeed. We’ve proven that we don’t need Bret Hart to be WWE superstars here. Mr McMahon, the owner of this company, recognises the talent and potential the seven of us represent. So Bret Hart, you better watch your back. We gave you until Sunday to give us RAW contracts and you ignored us. You ran away and failed to even show up last night. You are a COWARD. You will pay Hart, you will pay.

NEW FOUNDATION hits as the Hart Dynasty run down to the ring, they jump in and try to take on the seven men, but it proves to be a stupid move as the NXT quickly overpowers them, destroying both men, whilst Natalya is forced to watch from the outside Wade then tosses Smith, followed by Kidd out of the ring as Natalya runs over to them.

Wade Barrett: Looks like failure runs in the family then. Natalya, don’t just stand there, be the whore your mamma was and come be with the Nexus

Natalya scoffs and we hear a surprisingly uncensored expletive issued towards Wade Barrett. Wade laughs and returns to speak to the crowd

Wade Barrett: That’s right, Nexus, that is what all of you shall now know us as. We are the Nexus and we are taking over RAW. Mark my words, we are here to stay.

WWE Security make their way to the ring, helping the Hart Dynasty to their feet and helping the three leave the arena.

Michael Cole: This is horrible what the Nexus have done here tonight to the Hart family. After managing to get WWE contracts I thought this would be the end of their irrational behaviour, but it looks like we will have to get used to it.

Wade passes the mic to Justin Gabriel

Justin Gabriel: I would just like to take this time to address one Bret Hart. You have shut us out of the arena for tonight’s main event, which is fair enough. But if you think you can shut down the Nexus as a unit, I am afraid you are completely wrong. We, the seven of us are here to stay and work as a team to conquer our goals. That will not change.

The crowd boo as Justin drops the mic and gathers the seven together, united in a circle. The crowd give the group heavy amounts of heat during this. As Wade turns round he ushers the crowd to be quiet and picks the microphone up.

Wade Barrett: Thank you all very much for your time, it has been a pleasure. I will see you all again later tonight when I participate in the main event. John Cena, tonight, you meet your match!

Wade drops the mic as the Nexus proceed to leave the arena as we cut to a commercial break.


We return to RAW backstage with Josh Mathews and John Cena standing, with Josh Mathews ready to begin interviewing.

Josh Mathews: Ladies and gentlemen, here I stand with the former WWE Champion, someone who will challenge Wade Barrett in tonight’s main event, JOHN CENA!

John Cena: Thank you Josh.

Josh Mathews: I’m sure you head the Nexus’ threatening words just a few minutes ago. What are your thoughts?

John Cena: Wade Barrett and the Nexus can say whatever the hell they want, they can threaten me, Bret Hart or whoever else they want. But I have proven time and time again that I can get the job done. I don’t need six other guys to have my back in the ring. With the support of the Cenation, I can do whatever I need to do.

The crowd give a mixed reaction, but Cena ignores this, acting as though the full arena is behind him

Josh Mathews: And also moving on, last night you lost the WWE Championship to Sheamus in a thrilling fatal four way match. Sheamus won the title under questionable ways and as a result, you have your rematch on July 18th at Money in the Bank, does that make you feel at least a little better?

John Cena: Well, Josh, on July 18th, I will take back what is MINE. Sheamus may be champion right now, but he is just holding it until that day comes when I am ready to reclaim my WWE Championship, he can thank the Nexus for his chance to hold the gold for less than a month. There is only one place that WWE title is going after Money in the Bank and that is the Cenation!

Again a mixed reaction from Cena’s words, but we hear a huge pop as Sheamus makes his way backstage with his WWE Championship

Sheamus: Is that right Cena? I’d watch what I was saying if I were you. I just defeated Randy Orton out there tonight, something you’ve failed to do on a few occasions if memory serves me correctly? If I can do that then defending my dubya-dubya-e title against you at Money in the Bank should not be a problem.

Sheamus and John Cena then stare down as we cut to the locker room with Randy Orton and Evan Bourne sitting together, they are discussing tonight’s show when Y2J, Chris Jericho enters the room to a huge pop. Randy Orton stands in front of Evan after the events earlier

Chris Jericho: Whoa Orton, this does NOT concern you. This is between me and Bourne.

Randy Orton: Ya know what Jericho; when you attack a man behind his back, take out a friend of mine? Your damn right it concerns me.

Chris Jericho: Well Orton its okay, I’m not gonna destroy your boyfriend just now; I just came to check up on him, to apologise and to see if he was up for my challenge

The crowd pop as Chris Jericho laughs

Evan Bourne: I don’t want your apology. I beat you fair and square last night at Fatal Four Way. But if you want me to go airborne and destroy you once again… Then that’s fine by me. You’re on!

Chris Jericho: Glad to hear it, I’ll now leave you two pretty boys alone.

The crowd pops as Jericho turns to leave, but Orton grabs him and brings him back round and hits a huge RKO!! The crowd go crazy as we see Orton turn to stare at Evan Bourne, showing Orton is not all about friendships.

Michael Cole: Wow! What a huge RKO!! Orton is truly standing up for his fellow WWE superstar, Evan Bourne.

Jerry Lawler: That was crazy!

Michael Cole: Evan Bourne will face off against Jericho at Money in the Bank in a No Disqualifications match!

AIN’T NO MAKE BELIEVE hits as John Morrison heads down the ramp towards the ring, he enters as the crowd give him a pop. He smiles and runs from side to side in the ring, getting pumped for tonight’s match

Michael Cole: Fresh from defeat last night at Fatal Four Way, “The Rated R Superstar” Edge is in action tonight against John Morrison!

METALINGUS hits as Edge appears at the top of the ramp surrounded in smoke. He poses as pyro goes off. He then proceeds to the ring in his trademark coat. He slides into the ring and throws the coat to the timekeeper. He stares down Morrison as the matchup begins

Match Three
John Morrison vs. Edge

We see a fairly technical match, with Edge being very dominant at times. Morrison keeps himself in the match, proving he is a fair match for the Rated R Superstar. Edge finally decides to go for the spear at around the ten minute mark. He gets to the corner of the ring and prepares. As Morrison gets up Edge dives towards him but somehow Morrison reverses the finisher into a beautifully executed DDT. Morrison gets to his feet excitedly and pulls Edge to his feet. He sends Edge towards the ropes and as he returns he throws down a massive clothesline. He then gets up to his feet and jumps towards the second rope and pulls off a huge springboard. He goes for the pin 1-2-3 NO! Edge kicks out at the last second. Morrison starts to beat down on Edge’s head and then gets back to his feet.

Morrison sees his chance and as Edge gets to his feet he goes for the Moonlight Drive! But Edge manages to break free and gets Morrison into a headlock. Edge then throws Morrison over his body onto the ground and connects with a nice leg drop. Edge then climbs to the top turnbuckle and looks down on Morrison he goes for a HUGE diving crossbody! He connects perfectly and goes for the pin! 1-2-NO!! Edge comes so close but it is sadly not enough to win the match.

Edge decides it is time to finish this one and makes his way to the corner. He crouches and signals with his hands for Morrison to get up. The crowd give a mixed reaction, some of the smarkier fans getting excited at the prospect of the spear. As Morrison gets up and turns round, Edge finally connects successfully!! SPEAR!! Edge crawls over and rolls up the leg of Morrison for the pin 1-2-3! Edge wins the match.

Winner: Edge (via Pinfall)

Michael Cole: What an amazing match! And Edge has pulled off a victory.

Edge celebrates as Morrison slides out of the ring. Edge asks for a microphone

Edge: Thank you, thank you, and thank you! Yet another victory for the Rated-R Superstar right here on Monday Night Raw. Now next week, the RAW Qualifiers for the Money in the Bank ladder match begin and I would like to personally put my name down for one of these matches. I will destroy my opponent and then make my way to Money in the Bank where I will become a three time Mr Money in the Bank!

Edge drops his microphone as METALINGUS hits again and Edge leaves the ring as we go to another commercial break.


We return backstage with Wade Barrett in the Nexus locker room, talking to the other members.

Wade Barrett: I am serious when I say that I want you all to listen to Bret Hart for once, go home, and watch the big match tonight in the comfort of your own homes. Do not put your contracts and my contract at risk tonight!

Michael Tarver: But what if John Cena brings his own gang tonight?

Wade Barrett: You must be an idiot if you think that Cena has any sort of “gang”. He is one of the most hated men in the WWE.

There is a slight pop for this remark, to the surprise of Barrett.

Wade Barrett: Looks like this peasantville is one of the many places where John Cena’s “Cenation” just aren’t to be found.

Darren Young: Well I have my own match to participate in tonight so I won’t be leaving Wade; I’ve just been informed I’ll be facing a “mystery opponent” tonight!

Wade Barrett: Well looks like it’s just me and you Darren, the rest of you... you are excused!

The other five members of the Nexus nod and make their way out of the locker room.

Darren Young: Good luck in your match tonight, Cena is no match for a man such as yourself.

Wade Barrett: Thank you, Darren and good luck with your match too. Bret made no indications of any problem with any interference in your match, so if there are any problems, you need not worry.

The crowd boo as we cut back to Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler.

Michael Cole: A mystery opponent? Wow this could be fairly interesting!

Jerry Lawler: Darren Young is no stranger to the ring, of his 11 matches on WWE NXT, he won 7 times. Now that’s a pretty good record going into this match tonight

Michael Cole: That is very true. Now just having a look at WWE.com it appears that we have two qualifiers for the Money in the Bank to look forward to next weekl! Edge will get his wish and will face off against none other than Mark Henry!

Jerry Lawler: Wow, Edge may have made a HUGE mistake in demanding a qualifier match, no pun intended!

Michael Cole: That should be a fantastic match up to look forward to. But that is not the only qualifier we have to look forward to next week, Ted DiBiase will challenge a man we have just seen in action, John Morrison!

Jerry Lawler: Two huge up and coming wrestlers will get their chance to participate in the Money in the Bank match!

Michael Cole: But right now, we have Vladimir Kozlov vs. William Regal in a match that Kozlov demanded after the events of last week’s RAW. Let’s take you back!

A video package airs showing last week’s match between Santino Marella and William Regal. We witness the fast count which Kozlov used to give Marella the victory.

PAIN hits as Vladimir Kozlov appears at the top of the entrance ramp, the crowd give a small pop as Santino Marella stands with Kozlov. They make their way down to the ring and enter, with Marella standing ringside. The monstrous size of Kozlov intimidates even his friend Marella.

VILLAIN hits as William Regal makes his way towards the ring he stares at Marella and then looks up at Kozlov, he slides into the ring and Kozlov immediately goes to start the match.

Match Four
Vladimir Kozlov w/ Santino Marella vs. William Regal

The match does not last very long, Vladimir Kozlov dominates for most of the short match, taking William out with numerous powerslams and big boots to the head. Regal tries to fight back but when he eventually did start to gain any momentum, Santino Marella managed to grab his feet and confuse him for long enough to allow Kozlov to regain the advantage.

At around the three minute mark, after much domination Kozlov decided to go for his Iron Curtain chokeslam finisher. He held William Regal in place for a few moments and then executed the move perfectly! He stood up and taunted the crowd for a moment before placing his foot over William’s wounded body for the 1-2-3! Victory for Kozlov!

Winner: Vladmir Kozlov (via Pinfall)

PAIN hits as Vladimir signals Marella to enter the ring, they both begin beating on Regal and Marella signals Vladimir to go for the Iron Curtain again. Vladimir does so and pulls it off successfully. Marella then raises Vladimir’s hand in victory, but the twisted mind of Kozlov takes another turn as he grabs Marella by the throat and hits the IRON CURTAIN!!

Michael Cole: Oh my god! A chilling chokeslam by Kozlov! The Russian Warrior proves once again that he doesn’t want any friends!

Jerry Lawler: That man is crazy!


Michael Cole: Hello and welcome back to Monday Night RAW! What a night it’s been so far! But we still have two exciting matches to bring you.

Jerry Lawler: That’s right Cole; next up we have one of the up-and-coming Nexus members, Darren Young taking on an as yet unnamed superstar! Darren Young is in the ring right now, ready for action. Let’s hear from him

We cut to the ring with Darren Young standing tall, ready for his match, with microphone in hand.

Darren Young: I have no idea what Bret Hart has planned for me tonight, but I’m guessing this isn’t just any superstar I’ll be facing tonight. Let’s see it then Hart, bring on all you’ve got!

There is silence in the arena as we await for Young’s opponent for tonight’s match

SELF ESTEEM hits the arena and the crowd go absolutely crazy as the one, the only Daniel Bryan of former NXT glory stands at the top of the ramp. He smiles and signals the crowd as we cut back to the ring to see Darren Young going crazy, showing disgust at this decision from Hart. Daniel runs down to the ring and slides in, staring down Young as Young goes to speak

Darren Young: What the hell is going on? You were banished from this company. You are not good enough to be in this ring Daniel. What the hell does Hart think he’s doing?

Daniel answers no questions and goes straight for Darren as the bell goes to signal the start of the match.

Match Five
Darren Young vs. Daniel Bryan

We see an extremely exciting match-up between these two competitors, with very much end to end stuff. The crowd is fully behind Daniel the full match, showing lots of heat towards Darren Young. This helps to make the match even more enjoyable. Daniel shows off his high-flying moves taking Darren for a ride with multiple springboards and top-rope efforts. However, it isn’t all Daniel. Darren Young proves why he has earned himself a WWE contract. He uses lots of technical wrestling to dominate for long periods of this match up. He locks in a sleeper hold and looks to be able to force Daniel to tap out, but after over a minute in the hold, Daniel starts to find the strength in him and begins to fight back.

With the match lasting over ten minutes, we start to see signs of a finish, with Daniel Bryan starting to find his feet again, taking Darren to the floor with a flying dropkick. He then dives towards the ropes and jumps to the top and hits Young with a sunset flip. The crowd go crazy as Daniel pulls Darren Young to his feet and goes for a dragon suplex! The pain Young must be feeling is absolutely crazy. Daniel then decides to seize his chance and applies the CATTLE MUTILATION! There is no way Young can survive this! He holds on for a few seconds but is forced to tap out! Daniel Bryan wins!!

Winner: Daniel Bryan (via Submission)

Michael Cole: Well finally… the so-called Submission master, makes someone tap-out, I didn’t think I’d ever see the day

Daniel celebrates as the crowd give a huge pop. He looks down on Darren Young and pulls him to his feet. He offers Young a handshake, as a sign of sportsmanship, but Young spits in Daniel’s face. Daniel stops for a second and then drives Young to the floor with a huge clothesline! Daniel then looks down over Young and sighs as Self Esteem plays over the PA system again.

Jerry Lawler: Now that’s just not acceptable! Daniel Bryan tried to offer Young a handshake, but it looks like Wade Barrett has turned all of these rookies into arrogant, cocky, selfish wrestlers, which Is very disappointing!

Michael Cole: Well Daniel Bryan did just humiliate him with the Cattle Mutilation; I don’t think I would want to shake hands with someone after that!

Jerry Lawler: Oh come on Cole! Daniel defeated him fair and square, and Young couldn’t take it.

Daniel leaves the arena as we cut back to Young looking on angrily

Michael Cole: One thing to note is that Wade Barrett didn’t have Young’s back, showing that once again Barrett is only looking out for his own interests!

Jerry Lawler: In fairness Barrett has a big match-up next in the main event, he has to prepare for that, what do you expect him to do?

We cut backstage as we see Wade Barrett preparing for his matchup backstage, John Cena walks on screen to a mixed reaction.

John Cena: Well, well, well Wade! Looks like your boy, Darren just got his ass kicked!

Wade Barrett: Get the hell out of my locker room Cena!

John Cena gives Wade a stare and then turns to leave.

Michael Cole: That’s right next up in our main event, John Cena faces off against none other than Wade Barrett! We’ll be right back!


Michael Cole: Welcome back to Monday Night RAW, it’s almost main event time, but let’s just once again take a look at next week’s huge show.

Jerry Lawler: Next week, we will see two Money in the Bank Qualifying matches!

Michael Cole: That’s right next week; Edge will take on Mark Henry in one of these qualifying matches.

Jerry Lawler: And Ted DiBiase will compete against John Morrison!

Michael Cole: But that’s not all, also next week in our main event, Randy Orton will take on none other than Y2J, Chris Jericho!

Jerry Lawler: That’s a Pay-Per-View-calibre match-up!

Michael Cole: Be sure to join us right here next week at 9/8ct for another action packed night of Monday Night RAW! But now, Main event time!

WE’REWOLF, Wade Barrett’s new entrance music by Every Time I Die plays as the man himself appears at the top of the ramp he makes a signal, stating that the WWE championship will be around his waist soon enough. He makes his way towards the ring, getting considerable heat. He gets into the ring, awaiting his opponent.

YOU CAN’T SEE ME hits to a mixed reaction. The former champion stands at the top of the ramp and slowly makes his way to the ring; he is wearing his new “Cenation” top which is now on sale at WWEShop.com. He slides into the ring and stares Wade down as the match gets underway

Match Six
Main Event
John Cena vs. Wade Barrett

The match sees Barrett dominate Cena for large parts of the match, with Wade proving his worth and that he is deserving of his place in the WWE ranks. He even pulls off his finisher move, The Wasteland, coming so close to getting the huge upset over John Cena, but crazily, Cena kicks out and keeps himself in the match. This point of the match seems to be the turning point with Cena slowly pushing himself back into the match. Barrett goes to hit the Wasteland again but Cena breaks out and takes him down with a running leaping shoulder block. He jumps back up and repeats this several times. He then goes for a vertical suplex and pulls this move off perfectly. He jumps ontop of Wade and locks in the STF!! Surely there is no going back for Wade with this move.

Wade holds his hand up, looking set to have to tap out, but he holds for a moment and starts to use all his strength to try and pull himself towards the bottom rope. He makes a huge dive and successfully grabs it. Wade has broken free! This gives Wade a chance to gain some momentum, hitting multiple DDTs and chokeholds but he can’t get the opening he needs and slowly Cena works his way right back into the match. He takes Wade to the ground with a huge German suplex. With Wade on the floor Cena decides to go for his patented Five Knuckle Shuffle! He bounces off the ropes, taunts Wade and successfully pulls the move off! Cena gets to his feet with the back and forth “Lets go Cena!” and “Cena Sucks!” chants drowning out any other sound in the arena. Cena uses this energy to push for the win attacking Wade’s head and bringing him to his feet, he sends him towards the ropes and as he returns, Cena takes down Wade. He starts to taunt Wade, waiting for him to pull himself to his feet. Cena gets exited, taunts Wade and then kicks him in the stomach and lifts him up for the ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT! but no! Wade reverses it into a roll-up pin 1-2-3 NO! Cena breaks free at the very last second.

The match lasts a good ten minutes, providing great excitement for the fans in Bridgeport, Wade works his way back into the match and almost gets The Wasteland connected again, but Cena breaks free and hits a nice tornado DDT! This is something we have never seen from Cena and the crowd applaud the move, showing appreciation for Cena’s attempt to try something new. Cena bounces off the ropes and hits another shoulder block as Wade gets to his feet. Cena starts to get frustrated, hurting incredibly from tonight and last night’s brutal attack. Cena seems to just remember the pain Wade has caused him and suddenly starts to beat down on Wade; he drags him towards the centre of the ring and goes to lock in the STF again!! But this time Wade does not allow Cena to get the hold in, wriggling out and rolling Cena over for a pin!! 1-2-..NO!! Cena breaks free and jumps up to his feet. Cena starts to beat down with multiple hits to the face and chest area. Cena then kicks Wade in the stomach and lifts him up for a second attempt at the Attitude Adjustment!! He connects successfully! Cena rolls Wade over for the 1…2…3! Cena has won the match!

Winner: John Cena (via Pinfall)

YOU CAN’T SEE ME fills the air as Cena celebrates victory. He jumps to his feet in excitement, with the crowd giving him the continued mixed reaction, with the crowd split between support and hatred for the former WWE Champion. He jumps to the top rope and celebrates, but suddenly he is tossed down to the floor by SHEAMUS! The WWE Champion has a steel chair! He smacks it off Cena’s head repeatedly. He then pulls Cena up to his feet and tosses him towards the ropes, as he returns Sheamus smacks the chair straight off his forehead and his head is BUSTED OPEN!

Sheamus continues his assault on Cena, stopping at nothing. The crowd are going crazy, showing such emotion as Sheamus continues his onslaught. A short message appears at the bottom of the screen “TV-14 Parental Discretion is Advised” Sheamus drops the chair and he goes for the CELTIC CROSS ONTO THE CHAIR!!

Sheamus then slides out of the ring with his WWE Championship as the camera pans in on Cena’s bloody face and body. This is pure carnage. EMTs rush down the ramp to help out Cena, but one of them won’t be helping as Sheamus clotheslines one of them as they walk by. The rest run into the ring to help Cena. There is no goodbye from Cole and Lawler. The cameras continue to show Cena being helped onto a stretcher and carried out of the arena, body covered in blood as the screen fades to black.

Re: Bartman and LegendaryBazinga Present: WWE - Era of Awesome

PWInsider - WWE News and Notes

The WWE are reportedly looking to reach a form of conclusion on who is behind the Nexus BEFORE Money in the Bank. Despite this, the angle is expected to continue atleast till Survivor Series. The WWE are keeping things very close to their chest as it is believed there will be a "huge" return as a result of this angle.

Vince McMahon is looking at taking some time off after Money in the Bank. It is unknown if it will be fit into a storyline or if Mr. McMahon will simply fade himself out.

The WWE are reportedly pleased with their return to TV-14. They feel the significance of the final beatdown of Cena at the end of last night's RAW could not have been acheived on TV-PG. They wanted to show the sheer brutallity Sheamus was capable of, to cement him as a true champion.

Vince is reportedly very high on Bryan Danielson. The removal of him for the company for a short period of time was seen as a way to distance him from the Nexus, so as to try and cement him on his own, as a WWE superstar. Expect him to receive a decent push in the coming months. However, reports suggest that he will NOT be participating in the Money in the Bank ladder match.

The WWE are reported to have "not wanting to damage the credibility further" of the Money in the Bank ladder match by featuring two at the PPV. They understand that having a Money in the Bank PPV already damages the match as it was seen as a once-a-year WrestleMania match. For this reason, they decided to only have one match rather than the expected two for RAW and SmackDown.

The WWE are reportedly very happy with Ted DiBiase and John Morrison. One can expect these two to receive decent pushes over the course of the next few months.

The return of Triple H is expected to be looming. He will either return after Money in the Bank or after SummerSlam, it is currently unknown when the WWE plan to reintroduce The Game.

Re: Bartman and LegendaryBazinga Present: WWE - Era of Awesome

So glad you changed it to TV-14...WWE should've never done that...

Can't wait to see what you do with Daniel Bryan

Love the John Morrison push...I don't really care much about Ted Dibiase

Re: Bartman and LegendaryBazinga Present: WWE - Era of Awesome

Raw Review

OK, starting off with a recap video of Fatal Four Way. While the writing here way fine, there's a pretty glaring error. "We see the epic Chris Jericho/Jason Bourne match..." Pretty sure you meant Evan there.

Vince over rulling Bret is a fair move, as it's obv the NXT Rookies need to be on Raw fulltime to further their story. Perhaps having Vince come down to the ring to make that announcement would've been better, but that's not a big thing. Interesting that you'll only be having one MitB match. Nice move with the qualifiers. Always gives an added bit of prestige to make guys earn their spots. The battle royal is an interesting move tbh. I'm not sure a battle royal to qualify for a ladder match is the best idea, but the fact you emphasised that any Raw superstar could qualify leads me to think it'll be a surprise entry who takes the final spot. Another interuption as here comes Sheamus. And just like that, here comes Cena. The announcements were fine, nothing wrong with Cena/Barrett or Sheamus/Orton, both should be good matchups. Overall, nothing much wrong with the start of the show, as it set up the rest of the show and got the ball rolling towards the next PPV.

I always like to see detail in matches, so maybe include a few more spots in your match writing. Nothing overboard, but a bit more than what we got would be nice. Tbh, when I read Bourne beat Miz, I was sure this was the start of a feud that would lead to a US Title match for Bourne. But with Jericho coming out to challenge Bourne for a rematch, it kinda feels like a waste of The Miz. I understand you wanting to give Bourne a win, keeping his momentum rolling, but I think someone else could've been used in Miz's place. As for Jericho's challenge, a NO DQ match between the two should be a solid PPV match.

Wow. Amazed at this Divas angle tbh. On one hand I like the fact you took a bold move by having a backstage brawl between the Divas, as it's a very rare thing to do. On the other hand, I feel the roles are all wrong. Eve came across as a total heel while Alicia struck me as a weak babyface. I dunno if a double turn was on the cards there, but the way it played out was very unexpected.

Short promo from Orton, but it got it's message across. I liked the fact we had a little more detail in this match. Sheamus stealing the cheap win suggests he's now moving on fron this to focus solely on Cena.

NXT in the ring as we return. Barrett focusing on Cena was a smart move with his match tonight in mind. Tarver's little bit was solid enough, especially the mini swerve with regards to Bret. Hart Dynasty out. Now, this line "Natalya, don’t just stand there, be the whore your mamma was..." is really out of character. I realise from your notes we're no longer in a PG enviroment, so there's nothing wrong with an insult like that, but I can't imagine Barrett ever uttering those words. If you were set on using that line, someone like Otunga would've been better placed here.

Typical Cena promo, nothing wrong here, it was all pretty much in character. No complaints with Sheamus interupting either. I didn't really get the point in Orton RKO-ing Jericho here. It seemed pretty unecessary, and I after winning last night, I don't think Bourne would need any help.

No complaints with Edge over Morrison, and with the post match promo, Edge will surely be in the MitB match, as I don't see him getting involved in any title situations. Btw, a Edge/Morrison match would've been a great qualifying match.

I liked Barrett asking the rest of the NXT guys not to put their contracts in jeopardy. That was a smart move. Mystery opponent? Intriguing move. Also liked the little nudge towards his record on the NXT show. Edge/Henry seems a cert that Edge will win that one. Morrison/DiBiase? A bit more harder to call, gotta go with Morrison purely because he was on this show tonight and I don't think we'll be seeing DiBiase tonight.

Poor Regal. Such a talent, but he's just been squashed. Heel turn from Koslov? Hoping you can do something with him, as he regressed into little more than a comedy face IRL at this time. Daniel Bryan? Mark. Nice way to bring Bryan back, with a strong submission win. Nice touch with Cole afterwards, continuing the angle from NXT.

The little interaction between Cena and Barrett, I didn't really see the need for it. It only lasted two lines, and since we're about to see them in a match, I felt there was no point to it tbh. Nice shill for next week. And I'm glad the Orton/Jericho altercation from earlier has lead to a match. Makes a little bit more sense now.

"he is wearing his new “Cenation” top which is now on sale at WWEShop.com..." I chuckled. As for the match, Barrett was allowed to look strong in defeat which is always good, but there was never any chance of him winning. Sheamus out for the post match beatdown is a typical heel move, so no complaints there. "A short message appears at the bottom of the screen “TV-14 Parental Discretion is Advised”..." I've never seen that before I don't think. Would that not appear before the show started? at Sheamus clotheslining an EMT. That was gold.

Overall, a solid enough way to kick off the thread. A lot of storlines were established and we've already got two good looking matches for the next PPV. A few angle I found confusing, especially the way the Eve/Alicia interaction went, so answers needed in next week's show plz. Other than that, solid start.

Re: Bartman and LegendaryBazinga Present: WWE - Era of Awesome

Well it looks like 'Bazinga has gone AWOL.. haven't heard from him in close to a week.. he told me he had already written three shows, so with the first show still not being up over a week after originally planned I'm going to have to presume he is no longer participating this.

Right now, my plan is to recap SD till after MITB, and then I'll start writing full SmackDown shows, so here is the first SD recap.

Right now, my plan is to recap SD till after MITB, and then I'll start writing full SmackDown shows, so here is the first SmackDown recap.

WWE Friday Night SmackDown! - 25th June 2010

The show begins with the new World Heavyweight Champion, Rey Mysterio standing in the ring. He talks of how thankful he is of the fans, for helping him to this final chance to shine at the top of the SmackDown ladder. He talks of how happy he is that these fans are there for him when it counts. He then calls out anyone who wants a shot at his World Heavyweight title, and that he isn't afraid of anyone. This provokes the former champion, Jack Swagger to come out. He says that he wants to invoke his rematch clause right here tonight. He talks of how he unfairly lost the match last night and that he deserves his title back. MacMillitant then hits and the General Manager comes out to the arena. He says that Jack Swagger will not get his rematch tonight, but he will in just a few short weeks at the huge Money in the Bank Pay-Per-View. Teddy also tells the fans that tonight there will be two Money in the Bank Qualifer matches, with Matt Hardy, back as a superstar on SmackDown facing off against Drew McIntyre tonight and Dolph Ziggler facing off against Christian tonight. He then leaves. We then see Swagger and Mysterio in the ring. Swagger goes to attack Mysterio but suddenly the pyro goes off and Kane stands at the top of the ramp. He proceeds to make his way down the ramp and he chokeslams Swagger down to the mat. He then stares Mysterio and his title down as we cut to a commercial.

We return to the first Money in the Bank qualifier. We see a good 7 minutes of wrestling between McIntyre and Hardy. McIntyre proves to be too much for the veteran Hardy in the end though, as he gets the victory with the Future Shock DDT, granting him a place in the MITB ladder match.

Backstage we see CM Punk in the General Manager's locker room. He complains about the Kane problem and complains that he does not deserve to be treated like this. Teddy understands, and says that he will ensure that Kane does not interfere in his match tonight as he will be facing off against Kane himself! Punk is clearly very upset. Teddy then says the match will be contested under no disqualification rules.

We cut back to the arena as LayCool make their way to the ring. McCool is in action tonight, in a non-title match against Kelly Kelly. Despite Layla's efforts to cheat Kelly out of the match, she manages to steal the victory with a rollup.

As we return, Kelly Kelly is walking backstage when SHE IS ATTACKED BY LAYCOOL!! We see them beating on Kelly as we cut to the arena.

We are in the ring now for the second qualifier – Ziggler vs. Christian. We see a good match here, although we see Christian using some cheating tactics, trying to use the ropes for leavarage.etc which surprises the fans. Ziggler almost wins with the sleeper hold but Christian breaks free and eventually wins it with the Killswitch and then using the tights with the roll-up. The crowd are pleased but a little surprised by Christian as he secures his MITB spot.

We cut to the locker-room with the Straight Edge Society backstage. Punk is pleading with them, saying it was not him who put the Undertaker into a vegetative state, and that Kane has the wrong guy. The SES bow down to Punk, in full agreement that it couldn’t possibly be him. They say they will have his back tonight.

We cut backstage with Vickie Guerrero and Teddy Long speaking. Vickie says she thinks Swagger should be in action tonight to prove he is deserving of SmackDown’s Main Event at Money in the Bank. Long decides that next up we will see Big Show and Jack Swagger face off.

Big Show vs Jack Swagger – Big Show wins the match after about eight minutes of wrestling. He is defeated with a huge chokeslam. After the match, Swagger dives out of the ring and leaves through the crowd, with the lights going out and the sky filling up in red, with Swagger wanting nothing to do with Kane.

Cody Rhodes is backstage, he speaks to the cameras although directing his message to Teddy Long. He proclaims that he must be involved in the Money in the Bank match and that Long had better announce him for the match, and not force him into a qualifier or there shall be hell to pay.

We now cut to the ring for the main event between CM Punk and Kane. The match lasts a good ten minutes. Due to the No DQ rules, Luke Gallows and the masked man where basically involved from the get go, using weapons to try and take out Kane for Punk, but Punk is the one who ends up receiving a huge steel chair blow to the head, which busts him open. In the end though, Kane is defeated as Luke Gallows smacks Kane with a huge ladder, taking him down and then Punk hits a shooting star press from the top rope for the victory, albeit using the ropes for leverage, however due to the No DQ rules, the referee can do nothing about this. The SES then run up the ramp, not wanting to risk the wrath of Kane. Soon after Punk runs out of the arena, we see Kane getting back to his feet. He slides out of the ring and starts to run up the ramp, chasing after Punk as SmackDown goes off the air.

Re: Bartman and LegendaryBazinga Present: WWE - Era of Awesome

WWE Raw - 28th June 2010 – Preview

After last week's brutal attack by the WWE Champion on John Cena, tonight's show will open with John Cena addressing the crowd and addressing Sheamus. What will Cena have to say to the Philadelphia crowd tonight and what will he have to say to Sheamus with less than three weeks to go before the Money in the Bank Pay-Per-View?

Also tonight's show will see two huge Money in the Bank Qualifiers. Edge will take on Mark Henry whilst John Morrison will battle Ted DiBiase. Who will leave Philadelphia with their spot in the Money in the Bank ladder match and who will leave knowing they must win the Battle Royal in two weeks to have a shot at becoming Mr. Money in the Bank?

Also last week, Randy Orton delivered a chilling RKO to Chris Jericho in the locker room. Bret Hart has confirmed that the two will face off this week on RAW, what will become in this match and will we see more bad blood between Evan Bourne and Chris Jericho in the lead-up to their huge No Disqualifications Match at Money in the Bank?

For all this and more, don't miss Monday Night RAW live from Philadelphia at 9/8ct only on the USA Network.
