Before I post Backlash PPV results I will give a summary of the feuds leading into the PPV.
CM Punk vs. Sheamus - Simple, the two former World Champions going at it for the vacant WWE Championship.
Wade Barrett vs. Chris Jericho – As Y2J announced he was leaving before he could thank the fans his former NXT rookie Wade Barrett came out and badmouthed the Rockstar. This led to a vicious attack from the Brit which set up their encounter for the PPV.
Daniel Bryan w/AJ vs. Randy Orton – The psychotic Viper cited revenge as his motive for hitting a devastating RKO on Bryan’s innocent girlfriend, AJ. He wanted revenge for an attack that put Orton out of the Elimination Chamber PPV in February. These two collide at Backlash.
Christian vs. The Miz – A veteran wanted to teach his craft to a young and cocky Miz, with not much backstory these two go at it on PPV.
Cody Rhodes vs. Big Show – Rhodes wants redemption on the giant for his WrestleMania defeat. This Backlash bout, however, is a non-title match.
Alberto Del Rio vs. Evan Bourne vs. Kane – These three men go to war for the Intercontinental Championship at Backlash.
Curt Hawkins & Tyler Reks vs. Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara – When Sin Cara helped out fellow masked man Rey Mysterio on RAW they formed a team, a team who want tag team gold.
Monday Night RAW April 30th 2012
Monday April 30th, 2012 | Nutter Center, Dayton, Ohio
A recap video plays to start RAW; it shows highlights from last night’s Backlash event with CM Punk’s WWE Championsip win the main focal point of the video. Dylan Kelly committed a ruthless attack on John Cena’s father last night and with rumours circulating that Cena is in Dayton tonight Kelly must be on guard. Last night new Tag Team champions were crowned as Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks upset the odds and defeated the newly formed Luchadores. With these questions and many more left to be answered it should surely be a massive Monday Night RAW on the road to Judgement Day.
RAW kicked off with the usual pyro and an arena full of excited WWE fans. Surprisingly Jerry Lawler is not on commentary tonight and he has been replaced by Josh Matthews for tonight’s show. Suddenly The Celtic Warrior Sheamus came down to the ring, he seemed in surprisingly good spirit despite his defeat to C.M Punk last night. He congratulated Punk on his victory last night but he set the reminder that he is entitled to a rematch due to his contract. Sheamus wanted an answer and called for Punk to come down to the ring. He got his wish as C.M Punk came through the curtain to a thunderous ovation from the crowd, with his WWE Championship draped over his shoulder. Punk began talking to Sheamus about last night’s match however Punk knew he would walk out champion, Punk says if Sheamus wants a rematch they should do it in 4 weeks at Judgement Day. Sheamus disagrees and thinks the pair should go at it tonight, Punk tells Sheamus that as much as he would love to tear it up again tonight they should do it on PPV. Sheamus ponders the thought and as he is about to respond The Miz interrupts the pair. The crowd don’t seem to be happy as Miz emerges from the back with a microphone in hand, he runs down Sheamus claiming he doesn’t deserve a rematch because he LOST last night but on the other hand Miz won. Sheamus doesn’t like Miz’ tone and says if he thinks he deserves the title match he should fight him tonight. Miz carefully thinks about his response before Punk butts in and states he is the champion and could beat both men, he doesn’t care who he faces. On the other hand this lady does, Eve comes out onto the stage with direct orders from Dylan Kelly who is locked away in his office guarded by security. Eve says that Sheamus is entitled to his rematch however she also states that Miz won last night and Sheamus didn’t. Tonight’s main event is set it will be The Miz vs. Sheamus with the stipulation that IF Miz wins it will be a triple threat match for the WWE Championship at Judgement Day. Punk, Miz and Sheamus all stare each other down as RAW fades to commercial.
TAG TEAM MATCH: The Usos vs. The Heat Seekers
In the first contest of the evening it was the NEW tag team champions Curt Hawkins & Tyler Reks facing off against The Usos who are intent on capturing tag team gold in the future. It was a fairly contested match with the young Samoan brothers providing stern opposition for the champions, however it wasn’t enough as Curt Hawkins would hit the Heat Seeking Elbow for the victory. WINNERS: Curt Hawkins & Tyler Reks. After the match the crowd popped huge as Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara appeared, Mysterio with a microphone in hand gave The Heat Seekers some props for their victory. Mysterio claims that he has always been the underdog but last night he was expected to win, he didn’t like that feeling. Mysterio says that they’re the champions now and all the expectation is on them from here on out. The Luchadores want another shot at the titles, and they want it at Judgement Day. Hawkins who is still exhausted talks about how times have changed, a few weeks ago they were the underdogs but now they are the best tag team in the WWE. Hawkins claims that Mysterio and Cara don’t have enough experience as a team to take the titles. He is so sure of it that he and T-Reks accept their challenge for Judgement Day.
Matthews and Striker discuss the reports that John Cena is in Dayton, Ohio tonight and confirm that Dylan Kelly will give his reasoning behind the ruthless attack on John Cena’s father. The pair also says that Jerry Lawler was called to a meeting in Stanford, Connecticut after last night’s PPV. They hype tonight’s main event before another vignette for Bray Wyatt airs. Again he talks about leadership and love and claims he has been to hell and back. The video ends the same as all of his other vignettes have with him placing his hat on his head.
We return to ringside and Wade Barrett is here, he endured a gruelling contest last night with his former NXT pro and came up just short. He enters the ring and ‘You Tapped Out’ chants begin circulating throughout the arena. Barrett begins speaking about how he had the match won last night and how he was robbed of victory. Barrett knows Jericho got lucky last night but it will never happen again, he begins to become irate with the fans chanting and claims he could just as easily make the so called rock star Chris Jericho tap out. He says he isn’t just out here to speak his mind but to also scout out Jericho in his match. Barrett makes his way to ringside as Cody Rhodes comes out to some heat from the crowd; Rhodes got a big victory last night and wants to carry his momentum on here tonight. Chris Jericho is out next to a massive pop.
SINGLES MATCH: Cody Rhodes vs. Chris Jericho
It was a great match filled with technical ability and high flying moves put into fruition. The finish however left fans with a sour taste in their mouths as Chris Jericho had Rhodes in the Walls Of Jericho Barrett entered the fray and attacked Jericho. Winner: Chris Jericho via DQ. Wade showed no remorse and threw him to the outside, hitting him with any object he could find. Barrett then locked Jericho in a Dragon Clutch! He sat on his back and wrenched the Canadian’s neck, forcing him to tap away at the mat. Barrett with his suit ruffled continued the hold until security came out and got him off and away from Jericho who is out cold. We then faded to commercial with Jericho a wreck on the outside.
We come back on the air to an interview segment conducted by Scott Stanford; he is with the Prime Time Players, Mark Henry and AW. Stanford asks AW why he has set his sights on the high flying Kofi Kingston to join his agency. AW claims that everyone can see Kingston is good but he is being held back by his partner R-Truth. He claims everyone will see later tonight that when Darren Young and Titus O’Neill beat the pair that Truth will be the weak link. Kingston is good but with AW at his side he could be great. All four men walk off screen and head for the ring their match is next.
Tag Team Match: Prime Time Players w/AW & Mark Henry vs. Kofi Kingston & R-Truth
Filled with numerous incidents of outside interference the match came to an end through a mistake by R-Truth. He let AW and Mark Henry get under his skin, as his partner crawled for a tag he was distracted leading to O’Neill taking advantage and dragging Kingston back to his corner. He tagged in Darren Young and the Ghetto Blaster for the victory. Winners: Prime Time Players. After the match there was a hint tension between Kofi and Truth but after Truth apologized repeatedly the pair shook hands and left the ring together much to the anger of AW.
Striker and Matthews then begin to talk about Christian; he was really hurt last night. They say his injury isn’t too serious and that he will return next week on Monday Night RAW. They then begin to talk about Daniel Bryan and AJ. The pair screwed Randy Orton last night which showed AJ isn’t as innocent as she seems. Bryan will be in action a little later tonight but up next Diva’s action! Beth Phoenix will team with Eve to take on Tamina and Kelly Kelly. The winning team will each gain a spot in the semi-finals of the Women’s Championship tournament. The match is right after the commercial.
TAG TEAM MATCH: Beth Phoenix & Eve vs. Tamina & Kelly Kelly
The tag team contest was quite short with the finish coming from a GlamSlam sending Tamina crashing into the mat. Winners: Beth Phoenix & Eve. However Eve’s celebrations were short-lived as Beth attacked her and laid her out with a GlamSlam. Phoenix has left massive destruction and is surely the favourite to win this tournament.
After the match it is confirmed that Alberto Del Riowill defend his Intercontinental Championship…TONIGHT! He will defend it against a young man who has impressed WWE as of late, Tyson Kidd. Kidd has been on a roll and recently picked up a big win against Dolph Ziggler. This match is coming up next.
INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP SINGLES MATCH: Alberto Del Rio © vs. Tyson Kidd
In a fast paced match the Mexican aristocrat Alberto Del Rio would retain his championship, despite the fact that Dolph Ziggler got himself involve and attacked Kidd. Del Rio would make Tyson submit with a ruthless Cross Armbreaker. Winner and still Intercontinental Champion: Alberto Del Rio. As Del Rio was celebrating his victory on the top turnbuckle pyro would shoot out from all four corners in the ring. This sent Del Rio jumping away from the top and into the centre of the ring. The lights in the arena turned Red and smoke began to take over the ring whilst the demonic laugh of Kane blared out through the speakers as we go to commercial.
When we come back, Daniel Bryan and AJ come out to the ring. The crowd with a clear dislike to the pair begin chanting ‘Slut’ at AJ however she seems unaffected as the couple enter the ring with Bryan taking the microphone. Bryan begins to ask questions to the crowd such as; ‘we had you all fooled didn’t we?’ he would then pass the microphone to AJ who shouted YES! Bryan claims that they are the new power couple here in the WWE. He states that no one will stop them in their goals of becoming champions, he talks about Randy Orton who thinks he has everybody scared of him. Randy Orton would then come out to the ring to a huge ovation. Orton says that if it wasn’t for AJ he would have kicked Bryan in the skull last night, but not to worry because he will get him and when he does he will punt him in the skull. Bryan responds by saying Orton is all action but no brains, he may be psychotic but at the end of the day he was outsmarted. Orton says he has spoken to Eve and Bryan won’t be able to use AJ to an advantage in 4 weeks at Judgement Day because he and Bryan will face off again this time…in a STEEL CAGE! Bryan begins to panic and screams for Orton to get out of his ring as he has a match to win. Zack Ryder comes out and he faces Bryan right now, with Orton watching on from ringside.
SINGLES MATCH: Daniel Bryan w/AJ vs. Zack Ryder
In an easy squash match Bryan would pick up the win after he dodged a Rough Ryder and locked in a YES! Lock, wrenching on Ryder’s neck he was forced to tap out. Winner: Daniel Bryan. Bryan would quickly turn his attentions to Orton as AJ joins him in the ring. Orton however didn’t attack Bryan and instead applauded him from the outside of the ring. RAW goes to commercial with Orton and Bryan in a stare down.
We come back with Scott Stanford backstage, his guest is The Miz. Stanford asks about how confident Miz is for the main event, Miz replies that he will become WWE Champion at Judgement Day, he says Sheamus is just a bump in the road for him. Stanford asks why he is so sure, Miz replies with ‘Because I’m The Miz and I’m Awesomeeeeeeeeeeeeee!’ he walks of screen to a chorus of boos as our main event is next.
MAIN EVENT SINGLES MATCH: The Miz vs. Sheamus
What a great TV contest. WWE Champion C.M Punk is on commentary for this one, and he is heavily involved in the finish. On the outside Miz would proceed to throw Sheamus into Punk who didn’t see what happened as he dropped his microphone from his head. Several moments later as the referee attended to Miz an angry Punk ran into the ring and hit the tired Sheamus with a Go To Sleep! He quickly exited the ring as Miz made the cover and got the win. Winner: The Miz. It’s official our Judgement Day main event will be a Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship it will be, C.M Punk © vs. The Miz vs. Sheamus. After the match Punk entered the ring and stood face to face with The Miz while Sheamus was down. Punk raised his title high into the air and surprisingly Miz offered his hand to Punk, he was clearly thankful for Punk’s assist. When Punk sees the replay he will see the error of his ways. Punk declines the handshake and walks past Miz, his mistake of turning his back on Miz is there for all to see as Miz clobbers him in the back before hitting a Skull Crushing Finale! A chorus of boos fill the arena as Miz is the last man standing, he picks up Punk’s title and holds it high into the air as we cut backstage to Dylan Kelly’s office.
Kelly appears fixing his tie in the mirror as the crowd give him big heat. He seemingly enters his office desk and pops 3 pills and swallows them before sighing. He is out to explain his actions after the break.
We’re back and the crowd begin to boo as Dylan Kelly comes out to the ring surrounded by security, he orders them to stand around the ring as he enters and grabs a microphone. Kelly says nothing and points to the tron which shows his villainous attack on John Cena’s father last night. As the video ends Kelly begins to laugh down the microphone, he confirms to the crowd the Judgement Day main event and also says that Wade Barrett will face Chris Jericho in a Submission’s count anywhere match. Kelly says Thank You and proceeds to leave the ring before Triple H comes out to the biggest pop of the evening. Kelly re-enters the ring and looks angry with Hunter. Triple H grabs a microphone of his own and tells Kelly that the fans deserve an explanation for what he did last night. He asks if Kelly attacked an old man to try and prove dominance because all he proved was that he is a little bitch! Kelly quickly interrupts and he is livid. Kelly asks Hunter who he thinks he is he tells him he is lucky to still have a job here after he made NXT a joke, he says that he should maybe fire Hunter and his wife Stephanie as they are McMahon’s and this is his company now. Kelly says that Cena needed to be taught a lesson about respect for your boss. He says that he is going to take Cena to court and sue his ass but suddenly He’s here, John Cena bounds through the crowd in street clothes to a thunderous ovation. He jumps the barricade and begins fighting off security; he wants to get his hands on Kelly. Cena eventually fights off security and gets in the ring but Kelly escapes. As Cena goes to chase him down Triple H restrains him telling him he is going to make things worse for himself, Cena is irate and clobbers the COO in the face and the pair begin to brawl! Cena doesn’t care who he has to go through to get his hands on Kelly. The pair fight all over the ring with both men taking heavy shots, suddenly the security Cena took out begin to enter the ring and split up the pair, the crowd desperately chant let them fight but Dylan Kelly has a microphone on stage. Kelly says he just thought of a perfect idea, he knows that Cena wants to get his hands on him so offers a proposition. Kelly says that at Judgement Day it will be John Cena vs. Triple H in a No Disqualification Match and if Triple H wins he and his wife Stephanie McMahon will keep their jobs and John Cena will be sued by WWE. However if Cena wins he will get a match with Kelly himself and Triple H and Stephanie McMahon will both be fired! RAW goes off the air with the commentators screaming out in shock and with Kelly laughing at the top of the stage.

Re: WWE: The Cult's Way
The stipulations for Cena vs HHH are fantastic.
Re: WWE: The Cult's Way
First of all, congratulations on getting to your first pay-per-view. I haven't accomplished that goal yet so congrats again. Anyway, I like the concept of you adding a pre-show to the PPVs. They just recently started doing this in WWE, and I think it's a good way for people to take notice of some of the lower card talent. The matches you had seemed to all have meaning especially with the All World talents reigning supreme. You seem to have big plans for them so hopefully we see it come to its fruition. Definitely will be an interesting Pay-Per-View since it's the first of the Dylan Kelly Era. This was a pretty good video package too, not bad from what I can see.
Definitely the right way to go here with the Heat Seekers being the champions. I like the fact that you played on the fact that Sin Cara and Rey are a new team and it seems they're just starting to wet their feet. Not sure about their name being The Luchadores though, that could be anyone. But anyway, I like that they lost because they'll definitely be back for more later on. What a freak way of ending the match though, jumping into each other, that's gotta hurt. Would've liked to see the Elbow from Hawkins here though.
Not much to say about Show vs. Cody here other than the right man won. Not a fan of Big Show at all, so I'm glad you made Cody look good here. That Beautiful Disaster kick is a thing of beauty and I think should be used as a finisher for him but the Cross Rhodes is good as well. Just get rid of Show and advance Cody even more and you'll be fine.
Holy hell, AJ PULLED Orton out of the ring? Haha, didn't know she'd be that strong. Might wanna try and realize if that's possible first man, but anyway, I hope you don't really continue this thing with AJ as I've grown tired of what they're doing in the real WWE to be quite honest. But anytime Daniel Bryan and Orton lock up, it's sure to be a great match man.
With the way things are going, I think I'll have a perfect score for your predictions. Anyway, the right man once again won in this situation. Not only do you drag out this feud, but you have the chance to really make Barrett shine here and Jericho is a good stepping stone for that. I'm definitely a fan of Wade Barrett, so you better push him to the moon, lol.
These two matches again had the correct winners, looks like I'm pretty good in prediciting huh. Not much to comment on really.
But whoa, a little too over the top here don't you think? Seems like you'll be doing those kinds of feuds where whatever feud Cena is in, it'll main event the Pay-Per-View instead of the WWE Title. Now it's not necessarily a bad thing but this has been the trend in the WWE as of late. Also, this is a major shift in attitude from Dylan Kelly. We knew he was heel but this just seems way too over the top for me, but I'll see where it goes man. Reminds me a little of ECW back there.
Bray Wyatt, love the dude!
Well, I definitely went perfect in your predictions man. It was to be expected that Punk would be winning the title in his home state of Illinois. There really isn't much to say about the match but I was surprised to see the Pepsi Plunge brought back, it's a great move man.
Anyway, congrats on getting to your first Pay-Per-View again, but to be honest with you, I wasn't that impressed with what you produced out there. The show didn't feel like it was 3 hours or anything and the matches seemed kind of short. ALL the matches seemed kind of short. The promos were a bit short as well but I wouldn't critique too much on that since I don't write full shows. There could've been a lot more detail in your segments man. You did have some good moments with that Sheamus promo, it was pretty decent. But I think that you still need to work at a lot of things here man. Not to be too harsh here, just stating what I think could help you. Everything was laid out great, so that's a plus for you. But I just think everything was too short. The matches were predictable but I'm sure you'll do better on your next shows. We got the arrival of Bray Wyatt to look forward to as well as Cena's reaction to Kelly's assault on his father. And well, the Womens Title will be decided soon. So yeah, a little more work and you'll be fine man.
Re: WWE: The Cult's Way
Monday, 7th May, 2012 | Greensboro Coliseum Complex, Greensboro, North Carolina
RAW kicks off with a video package highlighting the altercation between John Cena and Triple H last week, the shows Dylan Kelly and Triple H arguing for Cena bounded through the crowd to the ring. The video ends with Kelly announcing the match for Judgement Day, John Cena vs. Triple H…No Disqualification Match! After the video ends the usual RAW intro video airs and we enter the arena and see the pyro is exploding on the stage. The crowd are ecstatic and are looking forward to tonight’s event, some notable crowd signs are spotted by the camera such as ‘Barrett Tapped’ and ‘Kelly fears Cena’. Jerry Lawler has still not returned so we are greeted by Josh Matthews and Matt Striker, they speak about the huge announcement last week and inform us that Triple H wants to get back in shape for the big match and he will be in action later on tonight before the pair can continue Dylan Kelly comes waltzing out from the back and the crowd don’t like it, they jeer him ferociously. Kelly doesn’t seem to care as he enters the ring in his smart suit with his smile gleaming across his face.
Just as Kelly goes to speak the crowd begin to boo again, they’re not letting Kelly get a word in here tonight. Eventually Kelly begins to speak barely being heard due to the loudness of the crowd. Kelly says that it is a beautiful day; he says he feels happy and he knows the crowd can see it. Kelly says that in 3 weeks he gets what he wants either way, he says that if John Cena wins he gets to fire Triple H and Stephanie McMahon and he gets to show John up in a match just like he did to his Father. On the other hand if Triple H wins he gets to take John Cena to court and gain a whole lot of money. Kelly with the crowd on his back even more now sarcastically says that he understands the dilemma they have; he knows that they really hate him and they want John Cena to get his hands on him but the people love Triple H and want him to keep his job.
Some members of the crowd look onto the stage puzzled however that soon turns into loud cheering as Stephanie McMahon emerges from the back wearing a suave looking business suit. She doesn’t look happy as she eyeballs Kelly on her way down to the ring, Kelly on the other hand has a smug look on his face as he mockingly places one foot on the bottom rope and lifts up the middle rope to let Stephanie enter the ring, she isn’t impressed. After she enters the ring she takes a microphone of her own. Before she speaks Kelly interrupts and says what an honour it is to have her here and before he goes onto continue Stephanie slaps him across the face to the delight of the crowd. She is clearly unhappy about the predicament that she and her husband have been put in; she calls Kelly a horrible, sad little man who gets joy out of making people’s lives a misery. Kelly cuts her off abruptly and says that is exactly what her daddy Vince McMahon used to do so before she makes accusations at him she should get her facts right. Stephanie says that at least her father didn’t assault a senior citizen because he was too scared of their son. Stephanie says that she wants Cena to get his hands on Kelly so bad but she and her husband love this business too much, she knows Cena will give his all but her husband is The Game, The King Of Kings and The Cerebral Assassin and he will get the job done. Kelly says he likes her fighting spirit and that he will be paying close attention come Judgement Day but shouldn’t Stephanie be wary of what Cena is capable of doing to her beloved Triple H. He says he has no preference of winner but he knows Triple H needs to be ready, he tells her that her husband’s opponent tonight is Big Show. Stephanie isn’t worried but tells Kelly he should be as John Cena might be here tonight. Kelly’s face quickly turns into a sour scowl as Stephanie’s music hits and she exits the ring. Matthews and Striker begin to debate the idea that John Cena could be here tonight and they talk about how Big Show is an angry giant after Backlash. The screen fades to commercial with Kelly in the ring looking far from impressed.
We are back live on Monday Night RAW; the camera shows the outside of the arena as Matthews and Striker inform us where RAW is emanating from here tonight. They reiterate that tonight’s main event is Triple H taking on Big Show before they are interrupted by AW who is out on the stage alongside Mark Henry and Titus O’Neill. AW introduces one half of the soon to be Tag Team Champions and a man who tonight will show R-Truth how to get it done in the ring, that man is Darren Young!
Young comes bursting out onto the stage to a few boos from the crowd, he is given a warm welcome by his team mate Titus O’Neill and AW but Mark Henry doesn’t acknowledge him. The four men then walk down to the ring with Henry walking behind the three foreman of the group. Young then enters the ring and poses on the top turnbuckle before standing in the centre of the ring with his eyes fixated on the stage.
R-Truth then cautiously walks out onto the stage to the cheers of the crowd, Truth appears to be alone, well actually he’s with Little Jimmy with whom he does his handshake with before bouncing down to the ring. Truth holds the bottom rope open for Jimmy before Young attacks him from behind, clearly unimpressed with Truth’s shenanigans.
Darren Young vs. R-Truth
The referee calls for the match to start as Darren Young stomps on Truth who is down in the corner of the ring. Young rags Truth to his feet by his hair and begins talking trash before Truth nails him with a sweet right hand, he doesn’t stop there as he keeps them coming before eventually whipping Young into the corner. Truth charges towards him and nails a clothesline sending Young’s head snapping back onto the turnbuckle. Truth whips him to the ropes and then hits him with a backdrop as he rebounds towards him. He goes for a quick cover. 1…2…Young gets his shoulder up.
Truth quickly brings Young to his feet and whips him to the ropes, his clothesline attempt is proved futile as Young ducks under his swinging arm and locks his arms around Truth’s waist before charging into the turnbuckle sending Truth face first into it. Young then begins to crash his shoulder into Truth’s stomach; his yelps of pain can be heard by the camera just over AW shouting words of encouragement to Young. Darren then lifts Truth onto his shoulders before turning around and dropping him with a spine tingling powerslam. He makes a cover. 1…2…NO! Truth just stays alive.
Darren wastes little time and delivers a swift elbow drop to Truth before repeating the act once more. He then poses to the crowd before leaping from the ground and…NO Truth moves out of the way sending Young’s elbow crashing into the mat. Both men get to their feet and Truth clobbers him right in the jaw before hitting a clothesline. Young quickly gets back to his feet and eats another clothesline for his troubles. Again Young is up fast but Truth hits a dropkick showing off his athletic prowess. Young gets to his feet and Truth is waiting…What’s Up! Truth hits his finisher and makes a cover much to AW’s dismay.1…2…3!
Winner: R-Truth via Pinfall.
Truth is left with little time to celebrate his victory as Titus O’Neill enters the ring and blindsides him. O’Neill hammers away at Truth but is caught off guard…
The distraction of Kofi Kingston’s music gives Truth a lifeline and he scatters under the bottom rope before heading to the stage where Kofi emerges microphone in hand. AW and Mark Henry have now joined O’Neill and Young in the ring, Young has now got to his feet. Kofi begins to speak, he tells them that he and Truth are sick of AW, they’re sick of them having a numbers advantage on them so tonight they’re here to put that advantage to an end as Kofi says he has enlisted help.
The crowd are extremely pleased to see Evan Bourne, Kofi’s former tag team partner emerge onto the stage and stand alongside him and Truth. Kofi then seems to have a huge grin on his face as he tells AW that they also got themselves a ‘representative’ Kofi turns side on and points to the entrance.
The crowd can’t believe it and neither can AW and his entourage on the ring, Booker high fives Kofi before the four men charge down to the ring much to the crowds delight. AW quickly scatters out leaving Kofi and his men at a man advantage, they clobber away at the three men in the ring before Booker hits a superkick to Mark Henry’s jaw. He hits the mat and rolls out of the ring still nursing his jaw. Meanwhile Evan Bourne jumps high and hits a knee to Darren Young’s jaw but he quickly gets out of dodge rolling to the outside. Booker hits another kick to Titus and motions to the top rope for Evan Bourne. Bourne climbs the top and just as he goes to leap Henry pulls Titus under the bottom rope to safety. AW’s men all back up the ramp as Booker T’s theme plays in the background. Booker plays up to the crowd and motions for a 4 man spinaroonie! All four men then get on one knee and in unison each does a spinaroonie. Matt Striker is full of joy for the returning Booker at ringside and we see his face once more before we fade off screen.
As we fade off screen we come to another vignette hyping up Bray Wyatt, the clearly deranged man talks about his people, “My people, they make me what you see before yourselves here today man. The love we share is unrivalled and unmatched man.” Wyatt continues on his speech before the video ends with him placing his hat on his head. We then cut back to ringside.
Josh Matthews and Matt Striker then hype up tonight’s main event between Triple H and The Big Show, they say the stakes at Judgement Day are higher than they’ve ever been for The Game and he needs to be ready as John Cena will go through anything and anyone to get to Dylan Kelly. They inform us that John Cena isn’t here tonight as he is checking on his Father in hospital back in his hometown. The pair then recaps last week’s events where Wade Barrett attacked his foe Chris Jericho. A video shows on screen of Barrett placing Jericho in a deadly submission move known as the Dragon Clutch. Matt informs us that Barrett has named the move the Barrett Clutch. Wade is in tag team action right now.
Wade Barrett is ready; he walks out onto the stage to some intense heat from the crowd before flinging his jacket that was draped over his shoulders. Barrett is in the ring and he cockily taunts the crowd.
And here is his tag team partner, Dolph Ziggler. The show off flaunts about on the stage before he begins to walk down to the ring. Barrett doesn’t acknowledge his partner as he enters the ring. Maybe some tension?
Tyson Kidd comes bounding out onto the stage; he is riled up and wants to get his hands on Dolph Ziggler. He runs down to the ring before wisely stopping. He doesn’t fancy getting in the ring alone with these two superstars so he waits on the outside for his partner. The lights cut out!
Here he is the Ayatollah of Rock n’ Rolla, light up jacket in all. Chris Jericho isn’t happy. As he walks down the ramp Matt Striker tells us we’ll see this tag match when we come back.
Wade Barrett & Dolph Ziggler vs. Tyson Kidd & Chris Jericho
We join this match a few minutes in and Dolph Ziggler has Chris Jericho in the corner, he is unloading on the Fozzy star with right hands. Ziggler takes Jericho into his team’s corner and he tags Wade Barrett. Ziggler then picks Jericho up and hits an Atomic Drop and Barrett then takes him out with a clothesline. Barrett makes a cover. 1…2…Jericho kicks out!
Barrett doesn’t look impressed with the resilience shown by Jericho. The bare knuckle boxer brings Jericho to his feet and begins his ruthless assault. BAM! What a punch from Barrett! After he hit a few jabs he caught Jericho with an uppercut that may have knocked him out. Jericho is motionless and Barrett proceeds to drag his dead weight into his corner of his team. Dolph then tags him on the back before vaulting over the top rope. Ziggler then leaps high into the air and drops an elbow right to Jericho’s heart. Before Ziggler attempts another he stops, fixes his hair and then proceeds to do a headstand, clearly taking advantage of the downed Jericho. Ziggler then wanders towards Tyson Kidd on the apron and flicks his hair right in Kidd’s face; angrily Kidd fires a punch and gets Ziggler right in the jaw. Ziggler turns’ away holding his face in pain and just ignores Tyson who is goading him to come back for more. Ziggler picks Jericho up to his feet and whips him to the ropes, clotheslin-NO! Jericho ducks and runs towards the ropes, Ziggler stops his momentum dead with a deadly dropkick, Dolph makes a cover. 1…2…Jericho still won’t accept defeat!
Dolph is furious; he clearly feels that was enough to put Jericho away. He stalks his prey like a Lion would a Gazelle. He wants to hit the Zig-Zag, Jericho is stirring and he’s up due to the help of the ring ropes. Zig-NO! Jericho holds onto the top rope which leaves Ziggler crashing into the mat. Jericho runs past Ziggler and jumps from the middle rope…Lionsault! Jericho hits a Lionsault. Ziggler is down in the centre of the ring, Jericho makes a cover draping his arm over Dolph’s chest. 1…2…Ziggler gets his shoulder up!
Jericho clearly felt the effects of his own move there, he is down clutching his gut and Tyson wants the tag, Jericho has begun the crawl but Ziggler is now waking up and can see Jericho going for the tag. He’s made-NO! Ziggler grabs Jericho’s leg and stands up with a disgusting smirk across his face; Jericho is up now on one leg. Enziguri, WAIT Ziggler ducked, Jericho is in no man’s land WOW! He uses his leg to come back across and he nails Ziggler right in the face much to the crowd’s delight. Both men are down in the centre of the ring, Jericho is slowly but surely making his way to his partner and eventually Ziggler begins to do the same. TAG! Barrett is in, TAG Kidd is in!
Tyson flies over the top rope and hits the oncoming Brit with a missile dropkick! Both men quickly get up and Kidd runs at the ropes, running back he ducks a right hand and then leaps up and drops Barrett with a Hurricanrana. Kidd exits the middle rope and stands on the apron and springboard elbow! Barrett is out, he makes a cover. 1…2…Barrett powers out!
Tyson wastes little time, he’s got Barrett’s legs and he’s going for a Sharpshooter, Barrett on the other hand has other ideas and tries to fight Kidd off. Barrett pushes Kidd away with the brute force of his legs and Jericho makes a blind tag, even Tyson doesn’t feel it. Barrett is up and Tyson goes for him, Winds Of Change! Tyson’s spine cracks on the floor and he rolls under the bottom rope to the outside. Barrett doesn’t realise Chris Jericho is the legal man! Jericho is waiting for Barrett to turn around, he does, Codebrea-NO! Barrett grabs a hold of Y2J! He switches Jericho’s position and gets him on his shoulders…Wasteland! Barrett has hit the Wasteland. He isn’t going for a pinfall? He flips Jericho over onto his stomach and sits on his back; he has got his arm wrapped around his neck. The Barrett Clutch is locked in and Jericho has no place to go! Tyson desperately tries to get into the ring but Dolph Ziggler grabs his legs. Jericho has no choice, the pain is unbearable, TAP TAP TAP!
Winners: Wade Barrett & Dolph Ziggler via Submission.
Matt Striker is going ballistic at ringside! Wade Barrett has just made Chris Jericho tap out. Meanwhile in the ring Wade has his hand raised by referee Jack Doan however he then sits back on Jericho and reapplies the Barrett Clutch. Tyson Kidd however has freed himself from Ziggler’s grasp on the outside and he charges into the ring and fights off Barrett. He hits him numerous punches and then clotheslines the Brit over the top and to the outside. Kidd stands on the top rope and invites Wade to come back into the ring, UH-OH Dolph Ziggler is in the ring behind Tyson who now climbs down from the top unaware of what is behind him…ZIG-ZAG! Dolph sends a message to Tyson Kidd, a message of pain as Kidd’s head bounces back off the mat with authority. Ziggler stands alone among the men in the ring as Wade Barrett is at the top of the ramp.
The commentary team discuss the problems between Dolph and Tyson before we cut backstage to Alberto Del Rio with his announcer Ricardo Rodriguez. Del Rio is wearing a clean cut white suit and has his Intercontinental Championship draped on his shoulder, Ezekiel Jackson then enters the frame and the microphone now picks up their conversation. Del Rio says that he wants Jackson to do him a favour tonight, to take out Kane. Jackson asks what is in it for him and Del Rio clicks his fingers which summons Ricardo to open up a briefcase filled with money. Jackson nods his head, clearly happy with the sum in the briefcase. He walks off screen as Del Rio looks at the camera smugly. Matt Striker tells us we now know Kane’s opponent, he faces Ezekiel Jackson next!
Here comes the man from Guyana, Jackson comes out to very little reaction from the crowd here tonight. He stands with a vigorous stare at the stage.
*VEIL OF FIRE*
Here’s the Big Red Machine Kane, he trudges through the red smoke on the stage and he seemingly has a big brown bag in his hand. The bag looks heavy but Kane has it tightly gripped over his shoulder. He enters the ring and carefully places the bag in the corner…what could be in it!? He then summons his pyro which shoots from the 4 corners of the ring. Ezekiel Jackson stands with no expression on his face, these two beasts are going to go at it right now.
Ezekiel Jackson vs. Kane
And here we go; these two beasts are going at it! Both men are throwing ferocious punches but Jackson ends up getting the better of Kane. Zeke then forces Kane into the corner before moving back and charging at the masked monster. He nails Kane with all of his body weight, forcing him to fall to the floor. Zeke makes a cover. 1… Kane kicks out with relative ease.
Zeke wants that money, he picks Kane up to his feet and using unbelievable strength Zeke hits a scoop slam on Kane who wriggles around in the ring. Zeke begins beating his chest and screaming for the end of the contest. He wanders towards the downed Kane and leans down towards hi- Kane grabs Zeke’s throat, he gets up to his feet and still has a tight grip on Zeke. He lifts him up, Chokeslam! Kane hooks the leg. 1…2…3!
Winner: Kane via pinfall.
Striker and Matthews talk about how even Alberto’s hired goon Ezekiel Jackson couldn’t take out the big red machine. The returning man beast couldn’t get the job done but maybe Del Rio can he runs down from the back quickly followed by Ricardo Rodriguez who has a steel pipe in hand. Del Rio enters the ring and attacks the unsuspecting Kane from behind clobbering him in the back. Del Rio begins to kick Kane in the arm, clearly trying to weaken him for a Cross Armbreaker. Del Rio tells Ricardo to grab Kane and pass him the pipe which his lackey does; Del Rio swings the pipe but-NO! Kane ducks and Del Rio smashes Ricardo across the face, Kane begins unloading his frustrations on Del Rio, punch after punch. Big boot! Del Rio rolls to the outside which leaves Kane to go over to his brown bag in the corner of the ring, what’s in it? Chains!? Kane pulls out a steel chain and begins to swing it around his head like cowboy would a rope, OH MY GOD! Kane smashes the chain across Rodriguez’s back and he falls to the outside screaming in agony. The lights fade to a dark, mysterious red colour as Kane’s music hits. We see a replay of what happened to Ricardo before we cut back to Kane staring at Del Rio who is helping his announcer up the ramp.
Matt Striker tells us that Kane used to carry chains around with him a few years ago to use them as a torture device but now he has them for protection from the Mexican aristocrat. We then cut to a graphic of Big Show and Triple H who will face off in tonight’s main event.
WOW, what an ovation for the WWE champion CM Punk, he comes out onto the stage with his massive title belt wrapped around his waist. Punk shouts out that ‘it’s clobberin time’ before he walks down to the ring. He enters the ring and picks up a microphone from the floor; he takes off his title belt and places it on the floor before he sits cross legged. Punk says that last week for once he was outsmarted. Sadly outsmarted by The Miz, Punk says that he heard in the back that Sheamus wants an apology for what happened last week. Punk tells Sheamus he’s sadly mistaken, Punk may have cost him the match but he doesn’t care because he doesn’t like Sheamus either. And he knows that Sheamus is probably going to come out here looking for a fight now but before he does he tells the world there’s going to be a fight at Judgement Day and one way or another he’ll come out WWE Champ-
*I CAME TO PLAY*
Here comes a man who objects to that statement, another member of the Triple Threat Match at Judgement Day, The Miz. He comes out wearing his ring gear as he is scheduled to face Punk tonight. Miz with a microphone in hand runs down Punk for being stupid last week. He was outsmarted by Miz last week and will be again at Judgement Day. Miz will become WWE Champion because He’s AWESOME! Miz drops his microphone and enters the ring, a referee then runs down the ramp and into the ring. Punk throws his shirt into the crowd and both men are ready.
CM Punk vs. The Miz
Both men walk to the centre of the ring and begin to trash talk each other, Miz fires the first shot catching Punk unaware, he quickly takes the Straight Edge champion into the corner and begins to drive his knee into his gut he does this several times before Punk falls into seated position. Miz forces his boot into Punk’s face forcing the referee to begin a count. Miz is wise enough to release Punk at a 4count before he brings him back to his feet; Miz is in complete control here clothesl-NO! Punk ducks out of the way and then strikes Miz with a backfist to the side of the face. He continues by hitting him with a kick to the leg and then a kick to the stomach that sends Miz onto his knees one more kick for good measure this time to the side of the head. Miz quickly rolls to the outside still holding his head. He uses the barricade as an aid to get to a standing position but here comes Punk! Suicide dive! Both men are out on the floor. We’ll see who can take advantage when we come back.
We’re back, live on RAW and Miz has complete control over CM Punk in the ring, we are quickly shown how Miz took the advantage. It appears after Punk rolled Miz into the ring he played possum and then hit the oncoming Punk with a boot to the face. We cut back to the action on-going and Miz has Punk in a sleeper hold, right in the centre of the ring. Miz is leaving Punk with nowhere to go here, the crowd are behind Punk and he feels the electricity from the fans. He wills himself to a standing position and begins driving his elbow right into Miz who is left gasping for air. Punk has escaped and he hits Miz with a combination of punches and kicks but the most impactful is the high kick which sends Miz falling flat out on the floor. Punk makes a cover. 1…2…Miz kicks out!
Great resilience shown by Miz right there, Punk wants this over with now though. He claps his hands together and symbolises that it’s time for Miz to go to sleep. Punk waits for the Cleveland native to get to his feet and he hoists him up onto his shoulders, GT-NO! Miz grabs onto the top rope and doesn’t plan on letting go. Punk quickly drops him, forcing him to land awkwardly on his leg. He’s down in the corner with the referee checking on him, this looks serious. Suddenly out of the crowd we see Sheamus! He jumps the barricade and is in the ring behind Punk, Punk hears the crowd’s cries and turns around into a Brogue Kick! Sheamus quickly exits the ring and stands by the announce table, Miz sure has recovered quick as he pushes the referee aside and crawls over to Punk making the cover. 1…2…3!
Winner: The Miz via pinfall.
Miz has pinned both of his Judgement Day opponents in two consecutive weeks! He quickly exits the ring as his theme music blares out through the speakers. Meanwhile in the ring Punk is out and Sheamus is now in the ring, standing over the fallen body of Punk. The camera picks up Sheamus speaking, “I’m not gonna’ apologize fella cause’ I just don’t like you” Sheamus then averts his attention to Miz who is standing at the top of the ramp. It’s clear he’s at an advantage because Punk and Sheamus are at loggerheads leaving him to pick up two straight victories against them both. Miz has an evident smile as we fade backstage.
Scott Stanford is there and his guest is Christian! He appears to a big pop from the crowd but he does have a back supporter on, this must mean he clearly is worse for wear. Stanford asks how he is holding up after Backlash, to which he replies not so good. Christian says things are not as bad as first thought but he won’t be able to compete for a couple of months. Before he continues The Miz walks on screen, he begins to laugh at Christian and says this is what he was resorted to by him. He says while he will be winning the WWE title Christian will be watching at home. Miz laughs in Christian’s face before walking off into the distance. We’re now back at ringside, it’s a divas tornado tag team match with the two winners earning the final 2 semi-final spots in the tournament to crown a new Women’s Champion. All four divas are in the ring, it is Layla and Kaitlyn vs. Maxine and Natalya.
Layla & Kaitlyn vs. Maxine & Natalya
It seems from the off that Layla and Kaitlyn have a plan, Kaitlyn charges at Natalya and takes her down, the pair then roll to the outside leaving Maxine and Layla in the ring. Maxine runs at Layla and nails the British beauty with a clothesline. She pulls her to the corner of the ring and heads to the top rope; she is going for a big splash. She leaps from the top…NO! Layla moves out of the way. Layla quickly picks Maxine up and hits a neckbreaker. She hooks the leg. 1…2…3!
Winners: Layla & Kaitlyn.
Their strategy worked! With Kaitlyn taking out the experienced Natalya it left the rookie Maxine and the veteran Layla in the ring. Great strategy from the diva’s and our semi-finals are set. Beth Phoenix vs. Kaitlyn and Eve vs. Layla. Speaking of matches made, Josh Matthews says he has just learnt that Dolph Ziggler will have his chance to steal the show at Judgement Day as he will take on Tyson Kidd. We then cut to a video.
The video shows Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara working out inside what looks to be a very old gym. Mysterio talks about both men being huge superstars in Mexico and now here in the United States. Mysterio states they are training and working on more death defying moves, moves that will win them the Tag Team Championships at Judgement Day. Next week they will show Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks the real Luchadores. The video cuts off with Rey and Cara looking at each other with both of their masks a light blue and gold. We’re back at ringside and Matt Striker tells us that Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks have also been given the night off tonight as they will be in action next week.
The cameras then go backstage where Daniel Bryan and AJ are walking, the crowd boo them whole heartedly and Bryan notices something on the floor. He pushes AJ to the side before bending down and picking up the object it appears to be his own YES! t-shirt, he gets back to his feet and looks at the shirt confused, suddenly from high in the air a small variation of a Steel Cage drops down and Bryan is stuck inside it. AJ filled with fear notices a letter on the side of the structure she reads it aloud, “Nowhere to go Daniel, no help and no cheating just you locked inside with the Viper.” Bryan quickly panics and tries lifting the cage up with the help of AJ from the outside. The pair eventually does so before running away frantically. Clearly Randy Orton has upped the stakes here tonight. It’s time for our main event!
Here comes Big Show, he gets a mild pop from the crowd but he looks serious. He enters the ring and immediately turns to face the ramp.
It’s time to play the game! Triple H comes out onto the stage with his wife Stephanie on his arm; he launches his bottle of water into the crowd before he climbs onto the apron. He spits his water into the air perfectly in unison with his theme music before he enters the ring and climbs the top rope, stretching his arms out wide to the fans delight. He jumps off the rope before the referee calls for the bell.
Big Show vs. Triple H
Both men start this contest by walking to the centre of the ring, gazing in each other’s the pair exchange words before Triple H nails Show in the gut with a firm punch. The Game is taking it to Show as he goes to work hitting punch after punch before he runs to the ropes and attempts a huge clothesline, his attempt sadly fails as Show stands still. He tries again but it seems he hasn’t got the strength to take the Giant down; he goes for one more but this time he is met by a bear like paw from Show smashing across his chest. Show takes advantage and pushes HHH into the corner before unleashing havoc with punches to the ribs. Stephanie looks concerned at ringside for her husband who is down flat on the floor, Show then puts all of his weight on Hunter by walking over his back, and his screams can be heard through the arena. Suddenly Dylan Kelly appears on stage with a microphone in hand, he states that if Triple H can win this match a new stipulation will be added for Judgement Day but if Show wins he will get a WWE title shot next week on RAW! Kelly then stays stood at the top of the ramp while Show quickly goes for a cover, realising the reward he will get for victory here. Sadly for him Triple H kicks out at the count of 2.
Show quickly drags Hunter to his feet and begins his assault again, he sends him into the corner before slapping his chest repeatedly, and on the last slap he shushes the crowd before unleashing the strike. Triple H’s chest has lit up into a pink colour and yet Show continues his attack. He then grabs Hunter’s head and smacks his own forehead into him as if he were cracking two coconuts together. He feels nothing but his opponent does, he falls to his knees and tries to bring himself up to his feet by using Show as a frame. A fight back on the cards!? Triple H desperately begins punching Show connecting with The Giant’s chin. Stephanie frantically cheers on her husband from ringside as he runs to the ropes and attempts that clothesline again, this time Show is forced to stumble a little bit but he’s still standing, HHH runs to the ropes again but Show ducks down for a back body drop, but The Game counters with a Facebreaker Knee smash that sends Show reeling, he then charges at Show attempting a Jumping knee drop but Show catches him. He has him held up by his knee and Show runs into the turnbuckle pressing all of his weight against Triple H’s knee, The Game drops to the floor and rolls around in agony while he has a firm clutch on his knee. Show drags HHH to one leg and picks him up before hitting a dangerous sidewalk slam. He quickly covers The Game, 1…2…HHH stays alive!
Show stalks Triple H, The Game uses the ropes to get up onto one leg and Show is ready to charge behind him. He does so but eats a knee from Triple H, as he jumped for a spear HHH used any power he had left to deliver a knee to Show’s face. Triple H hooks Show’s arms Pedigree! He hits the Pedigree, and drapes his arm over the Giant’s chest, 1…2…3! NO! Big Show kicks out; he isn’t going to let a WWE title shot go that easily. Stephanie can’t believe it and neither can Hunter who crawls towards the corner before looking at the fallen giant. Triple H doesn’t know what to do next, he contemplates his next move and does a crotch chop before wandering over to his downed opponent he tries to pick up Show but it proves to be a hard task as he is dead weight. Eventually HHH hooks his arms for another Pedigre-NO! Show picks him up high into the air and hits a back body drop, Show is up and unhooks the straps from his attire, and he wants to end this now. Show brings Triple H to his feet before grabbing him by the throat, he tries to escape but Show lifts him high into the air before smashing his back against the mat with authority, what a Chokeslam! Show makes a cover, 1..2…Triple H gets his foot on the bottom rope!
Dylan Kelly then begins to walk down the ramp from the top of the stage; he clearly wants a closer look at the action but that doesn’t bode well with Stephanie who gets in the chairman’s face ordering him to back away from the ring. Meanwhile inside the squared circle Big Show has his hand cocked and ready for the W.M.D, Triple H is up and he groggily turns around, WM-WAIT! Triple H ducks leaving Show to punch the turnbuckle, the referee has now been distracted by Stephanie and Kelly who are arguing on the outside. Big Boot from Show and Triple H falls to the outside just in front of our commentary team. Show quickly walks to the ropes and reaches over grabbing Triple H by the hair. SLEGEHAMMER! The Cerebral Assassin catches Show right in the jaw and he is sent reeling and is hunched over. The referee turns around to see Triple H roll back into the ring and he limps over to Show. Hooks his arms, Pedigree! He hits it and makes the cover. 1…2…3!
Winner: Triple H via pinfall.
What a win for The Game, the crowd are ecstatic and his wife Stephanie enters the ring to sit with him. She is quickly followed by Dylan Kelly who asks for a microphone, he crouches down so he can look Hunter in the eye before he speaks. He says that he is a man of his word and there is a new stipulation for Judgement Day and it is that IF Hunter can get the win against John Cena he will become the RAW general manager! The crowd pop huge for this decision as Triple H who is still sat in the corner lets out a brief smile to his wife. Kelly then heads towards the back and through the curtain where the camera has followed him, he walks past his security guard on the door before entering his office to see it has been trashed. His table has been thrown to the ground and his papers have been thrown all over the room. On his office chair, he sees that there is a note which he opens for the camera to see and it reads, ‘I’m not just coming for you Kelly, I’m coming for your whole company’. The note then has the WWE logo smeared in blood to which the commentators react to shocked, they say if things weren’t serious enough between Kelly and Cena they sure are now. Kelly throws the letter to the ground before noticing a green John Cena cap on the floor, he screams and kicks Cena’s cap across the room before he then begins to throw things around the room. RAW abruptly cuts off air with Kelly screaming furiously.

Re: WWE: The Cult's Way
Starting the show off with Kelly was definitely the right move here. However, I feel like he didn't really say much, he could've said more. I do like how you write the reception and reactions they give towards Kelly, building him up as a heel authority figure. The arrival of Stephanie definitely added something here as not only did she hype Triple H but she pointed out something to be seen tonight with Cena possibly on the offensive against the heel GM. It was an okay opening but it could've been more to be honest, not bad though.
An interesting development here as you form another group of guys. Can't say I don't like it as I like everyone that's involved. Stable wars is something hard to write for so I hope that you're prepared to do so. Always good to have the newer team have more of the momentum so they have a successful debut. BOOKER T! Love it, haha. And you must be real high on Bray Wyatt, hope he continues to deliver some awesome promos and some matches as well.
Your match writing has definitely improved but sometimes it felt like it didn't flow well but you're doing good as of right now. Your match writing will improve more over time, just keep writing matches like this, it's good to see. The tag team bout was a good one, I just love seeing Tyson Kidd mix it up with the upper-carders. Everything about this match, I loved even the ending with the heels out on top. Very big situation here with Barrett making Jericho tap, what a submission move.
Well that seemed like too much of a squash here. Jackson is a pretty big guy so I thought he could've gotten a little more offense in. I do like that you're taking advantage of Del Rio's money, maybe it becomes a trend where he hires some muscle to weaken Kane, could be a good way to debut Bray Wyatt in my opinion. A lot weapons coming into play here, not sure if this is really Del Rio's style since his moveset is pretty technical. Poor Ricardo here, lol.
Miz has been impressive so far beating Sheamus and Punk, but I don't think he'll be coming out with the gold. Good job in building him back up though. I like that Sheamus is heel once again since that definitely suits him better. The added interview with Christian only made Miz seem even more like a threat to take the WWE Title but it leaves Christian out for a bit. Hopefully Christian comes back feeling better than ever and goes for the WWE Title as well, book it!
Not much to say on the divas but the division is definitely going somewhere. I like the idea of the video as it builds Cara and Rey more as a team. Definitely looking forward to them chasing the tag team titles. Kind of a random thing to happen with a cage falling over, pretty sure that they would notice that. But your message was good here. I think there should've been more commercial breaks, seems like you had a lot going on, so I think you need to spread things out a little more.
Seems like having weapons in matches is the trend here tonight. HHH gets the win because of his trusty sledgehammer and I like it. Probably because I don't like Big Show that much. But anyway, Kelly adds yet another stipulation which is a big one. With that stipulation being announced, it leads me to believe that John Cena will win because you wouldn't want your newly appointed authority figure to be out of the position rather quick, so I'm guessing Cena wins and HHH is gone. Whoa, interesting aftermath here, definitely a message well sent to Kelly.
Overall, a lot of positives in this episode man, liked it a lot. Things could've been spread out more but that's just me being picky. I think the recaps have been better for you to write so I hope you stick with that. Definitely liking this Cena/HHH/Kelly situation along with Barrett/Jericho and Kidd/Ziggler. You got a lot of good stuff going. Keep writing matches at that length and you'll be doing fine. Can't wait for the next show! (Y)
Re: WWE: The Cult's Way
Monday 14th May 2012 | Consol Energy Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
RAW kicks off with the usual intro package before the pyro fizzles around the stage in front of this capacity crowd. We cross live to our announce team Matt Striker and Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler. Who has been absent from commentary for two weeks now, they both tell us that Dylan Kelly is furious after his office was trashed last week and all signs lead to the culprit being John Cena, they tell us that Dylan Kelly has put out the order of Cena not being allowed anywhere near this company until Judgement Day.
The capacity crowd erupts into boos as WWE chairman Dylan Kelly walks out onto the stage with his new theme music Sick by Adeltias Way. Kelly who as usual looks very dapper in his suave suit seems paranoid as he and his company are at threat. After he gets to the ring he asks for a microphone. With real passion and anger in his voice Kelly tells this crowd that John Cena better stay away from him or he will get him thrown in prison. This doesn’t mean that he fears Cena but Cena should fear him if he shows up here. The chairman tells us that later tonight Triple H will face off against Big Show again but this time in a Street Fight! Kelly says that Triple H had to use a weapon to defeat Show last week so this week the odds are evened with weapons legal. And if you thought Show was angry last week he’s even angrier tonight after Hunter cost him a shot at the WWE title last week. Kelly sarcastically tells the crowd to enjoy the show and goes to exit the ring…
What an ovation! CM Punk bursts out onto the stage with his WWE Championship wrapped around his waist. Punk begins to walk down to the ring as Dylan Kelly now stands in the centre of the squared circle, Punk stands on the top turnbuckle with his arms spread out wide with the crowd roaring with appreciation. He climbs down the top before getting a microphone, Kelly clearly isn’t happy to see him but Punk doesn’t seem to be too happy himself. Punk claims that as WWE chairman Kelly needs to forget about him and focus on the main asset in the company the WWE Championship, which provokes a big pop from the crowd as Punk raises the title into the air. Punk says that last week Sheamus cost him a match against The Miz and he wants a piece of the Celtic Warrior tonight! Kelly quickly replies by saying that Punk also cost Sheamus a match against The Miz but the feeling is mutual from Sheamus who came to ask Kelly for a match with Punk a few days ago. Kelly declares that tonight it will be The Celtic Warrior Sheamus taking on the WWE Champion CM Punk tonight!
*I CAME TO PLAY*
Much to the disappointment of CM Punk, The Miz saunters out to some big heat from the crowd. Wearing his ‘Danger I’m Awesome’ T-shirt. He has a microphone in hand and starts by saying Really? Miz says that the WWE Championship may as well be handed to him right now as he beat Sheamus two weeks ago and he beat CM Punk last week. Punk abruptly cuts off Miz by saying come back to real world which gets a pop from the crowd as it is the show Miz used to appear on. Punk says he had him beat last week if it wasn’t for Sheamus and Sheamus had him beat two weeks ago if it wasn’t for Punk himself. Punk says that his championship won’t be handed to anyone especially a MTV reject. Clearly that comment didn’t go down well with Miz who goes to speak with anger before Dylan Kelly interrupts claiming he has an idea. Kelly says that tonight it will now be Sheamus vs. CM Punk with The Miz as the special guest referee! The crowd don’t like that and neither does CM Punk but Miz on the other hand now has a huge grin on his face. Kelly’s theme music hits before he exits the ring leaving Punk to stare at Miz who is at the top of the ramp. We fade to commercial with Matt Striker reiterating tonight’s huge match.
We’re back on the air with Alberto Del Rio in the back along with Ricardo Rodriguez who clearly looks worse for wear after last week. Alberto begins talking and says that Ezekiel Jackson couldn’t get the job done last week but Alberto is $100,000 sure that this man can get it done. The camera then pans to The Great Khali who Alberto has brought back to the WWE for one night only. Khali nods his head which makes Alberto a very happy man, he and Ricardo then scamper off as we head to ringside.
A mixed theme song blares through the PA system as the two masked men Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara burst out onto the stage both wearing matching attires. They slap hands with each other before running down to the ring and both catapult themselves in over the top rope. They pose on the top rope before they both stand in the corner deep in conversation with each other.
The crowd erupts with jeers as Vickie Guererro shouts out her famous catchphrase. The cougar then introduces her client…
To some mild heat Vickie’s current client ‘The All American American’ Jack Swagger appears standing alongside Vickie before they begin to walk down the ramp. Swagger doesn’t know who his partner tonight is and he looks to the stage waiting for his arrival.
Swagger and Vickie look impressed with who Swagger has to team with, Drew Mcintyre who walks down the ramp to little reaction from the crowd. Mcintyre enters the ring and shakes hands with Swagger before exiting onto the apron.
Tag Team Match
Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara vs. Jack Swagger & Drew Mcinytre w/Vickie Guererro
Rey Mysterio and Jack Swagger are the two men to start this match off and it is Swagger with the early advantage as he takes Mysterio down displaying his great amateur wrestling ability. Swagger then lifts Mysterio up and takes him into the corner before sending his shoulder right into Rey’s ribcage, forcing the master of the 619 to gasp for breath. Swagger then carries Rey over his shoulder to his teams corner and allows Mcintyre to tag his back, the Scot quickly enters the ring he hooks Mysterio’s arm while he’s on Swaggers back with great strength he carries Mysterio before hitting a suplex, he quickly covers Mysterio. 1…2…Rey kicks out!
Drew springs up onto his feet and then proceeds to bring Rey up too, suddenly the masked superstar breaks apart his grip and hits a nice kick to the leg. He continues his offense by unleashing a series of punches to Drew’s head before running to the ropes and on his return delivers a dropkick to his knees sending Drew into position for the 619! Myserio runs to the ropes and he NO! Mcintyre moves out of the way and then drops Mysterio with a massive clothesline, near beheading him. Drew takes the opportunity to crawl to his corner and tag in Jack Swagger. Swagger charges into the ring with purpose and picks Mysterio up by his waist before hitting a German suplex that sends Mysterio flying onto his neck. Swagger then jumps over Mysterio before jumping up top Swagger Bomb! Swagger nearly crushes Rey, he makes a cover. 1…2…Rey is still alive!
Swagger can’t believe his eyes and he picks Mysterio up before sitting him on the top turnbuckle, he quickly follows Rey up to the top and begins hammering away at his head. Sin Cara is pacing around on the apron trying to bring his partner back into it, Swagger has Rey set for a superplex but he is met with a stiff punch to the ribs, Rey begins using all he has in him to punch away at Swagger and he flips over his head Powerbomb! Sunset flip powerbomb from the top rope! Mysterio makes a cover. 1…2…Swagger kicks out.
Sin Cara wants the tag; he is desperate to get into this match. But Rey ignores him and climbs slowly but surely to the top rope by the time he gets there though Swagger is getting to a standing base, Mysterio leaps through the air but ends up having to land on his feet due to Swagger dodging his attack Swagger then sweeps Mysterio by his legs and grabs his ankle…ANKLE LOCK, Swagger has it locked in and Mysterio is in the centre of the ring screaming in agony. Rey desperately tries to crawl towards the ropes but his attempts of freedom are thwarted by Swagger who drags him back into the centre of the ring. Suddenly Rey uses all of the strength he has left to push Swagger back and into his own partner Drew Mcintyre who falls to the outside. Rey is crawling; he leaps through the air and makes the TAG!
Sin Cara vaults over the ropes and into the action and Jack Swagger turns around from his bump and into a dropkick to the chin from Cara. The masked sensation then runs to the ropes before springboading from them to deliver an elbow to Swaggers face, Jack is reeling and Cara has climbed to the top rope. He soars through the air majestically does Cara but he is met with an unpleasant end as Swagger moves out of the way. Cara crashes to the mat and Swagger is the first to capitalise, he locks his hands around Cara’s gut and picks him up GUTWRENCH POWER-NO! Cara counters it into an arm drag forcing Swagger into the turnbuckle. His partner Drew Mcintyre is back on the apron and makes a blind tag. Sin Cara is unaware and he charges at Swagger he hits La Mistica! Swagger rolls to the outside where Vickie treats his injuries and Drew Mcintyre runs into the fray hitting Cara with a flurry of strikes. Drew throws Cara into the corner before turning around to Rey Mysterio on the apron, he talks trash to Rey but Rey retaliates with a kick to the head. Drew falls to his knees in the centre of the ring, Rey and Cara climb on opposite turnbuckles, they’re going to attempt the move which lead to their downfall at Backlash, and their timing must be perfect. Both men jump and each hits a dropkick on either side of Drew’s head, sandwiching his head with unbelievable force. Drew stays on his knees swaying either way he’s clearly out of it. Rey kicks him across the face forcing him to fall onto the 2nd rope, Rey calls for it while Swagger is still down on the outside.
619! Rey hits a 619, Mcintyre is groggily still standing and Sin Cara charges at him La Mistica into an armbar! These two are the legal men, Rey climbs up top…Legdrop Straight onto the back of Drew’s neck. Sin Cara quickly releases the hold and turns Mcintyre over for a cover while Rey stands guard for Swagger but he’s still down. 1…2…3!
Winners: Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara via pinfall.
The crowd are delighted and so are Rey and Cara, the masked men embrace each other in the ring before raising their arms in victory. Matt Striker praises the performances of Drew Mcintyre and Jack Swagger, a pair who were put together at random. Jerry Lawler then hypes up two huge matches for tonight right here on RAW. But that’s not all after last week’s Tag match between Dolph Ziggler and Wade Barrett taking on Tyson Kidd and Chris Jericho. Barrett made Jericho tap out and tonight they’ve been split into two singles matches, Tyson Kidd will take on Wade Barrett and Chris Jericho will take on Dolph Ziggler.
*13 DAYS AWAY*
RAW returns with Kaitlyn already in the ring, her Women’s Championship semi-final match is right now against Beth Phoenix.
Here she comes, one of the most dominant divas the WWE has ever seen. Beth walks down the ramp with a purpose to some mild heat from the crowd, Beth enters the ring and gazes into her opponents eyes but she shows no fear.
Women’s Championship Semi-Final Tournament Match
Kaitlyn vs. Beth Phoenix
The referee calls for this match to start and these two divas circle each other in the ring. Kaitlyn is the first to attack as she goes for a headlock but Phoenix quickly ducks underneath and puts her in a waist lock. Using impressive strength Beth lifts her up and launches her into the turnbuckle, forcing her to bounce straight off it in devastating fashion. Beth quickly pulls her away from the ropes for a cover. 1…2…Kaitlyn gets her shoulder up!
Beth quickly gets back on the offense and begins to stomp on her opponent driving her foot right into her face. Beth brings Kaitlyn to her feet and hooks her arms for a Glamslam! Sadly for her Kaitlyn wriggles free and hits Beth with a stern elbow to the chin, Beth is reeling and Kaitlyn hits a flying clothesline. Kaitlyn has taken down the Glamazon! Kaityln sits behind Beth grabbing her arms…LOTUS LOCK! She’s got it locked in; the pain Beth must be feeling is unrivalled. Kaitlyn putting all of her might into claiming this huge scalp, Beth forces herself back and she counters the hold into a pin! 1...2…Kaitlyn kicks out!
Beth with a great counter there, she’s still in pain as it is visible when she climbs to her feet, Kaitlyn is now up to her feet too. The pair begins trading blows as the crowd reacts to every punch, Beth takes advantage and whips Kaitlyn into the turnbuckle she charges at her with speed but Kaitlyn uses the ropes to push herself up onto the top turnbuckle. She wraps her legs around Beth’s neck like a Boa Constrictor would to its prey. Beth is gasping for breath as Kaitlyn pulls on the ropes to add more pressure, The Glamazon then pulls away from the corner and Kaitlyn is sat on her shoulders, she falls back…QUEEN SUPLEX! Kaitlyn landed right onto her neck, the cover is made. 1…2…NO! Kaitlyn kicks out again!
Beth is angry and she rags Kaitlyn to her feet and hooks her arms, GLAM SLA-NO! Kaitlyn counters into a small package! 1…2…Beth kicks out! Kaitlyn thought she had it right there, Beth is the first up and she brings Kaitlyn to her feet. She begins hammering away at the first female winner of NXT before going for a clothesline…Kaitlyn ducks and kicks Beth in the gut, DDT! Beth’s head bounces off the canvas. Kaitlyn slowly gets to her feet still clutching her neck, with great strength she carries Beth and sits her on the top rope before climbing up after her, she hits a few blows before turning her back to Phoenix and spreading her arms out wide to the crowds delight…WAIT! Beth grabs her arms, and moves her to the top. Beth leaps, GLAM SLAM FROM THE TOP ROPE! Kaitlyn is out of it and Beth drapes over her dismantled body. 1…2…3!
Winner: Beth Phoenix via pinfall.
At the commentary desk Kaityln receives all the plaudits as she took Beth all the way here tonight, but we now know that it will be Beth Phoenix vs. Eve or Layla for the Women’s Championship at Judgement Day. The camera shows Kaitlyn still down in the ring and Beth walking up the ramp holding her ribs as we go to commercial.
RAW returns with Josh Matthews who welcomes us back to the show and to his guest at this time AW, he stands alone here tonight as Josh Matthews begins to speak, he informs us that at Judgement Day a match has been made Mark Henry and the Prime Time Players will take on Kofi Kingston, R-Truth and Evan Bourne with AW and Booker T in their teams respective corners. Matthews asks AW’s thoughts on the match made before the smooth talking AW replies by saying he feels good. He says his clients have been given the night off tonight but he’s still here to scout the opposition. He says he doesn’t even think Kofi and his team stand a chance and that Booker T doesn’t have anything on him. AW then brashly claims that the sooner Kofi comes to his senses and joins them the sooner he will become great, AW then walks off screen.
The camera then pans to show The Great Khali walking through the backstage area; Striker begins to tell us he faces Kane next before out of nowhere the Big Red Machine takes Khali down with his Chains! Kane pummels away at the Punjabi Giant as the crowd's cheers are heard in the background. Production members are seen running away from the pair as Kane picks Khali up to his feet, he proceeds to use unrivalled strength and Chokeslam Khali through a table with food on it! Kane then grabs the camera from the camera man before zooming it at Khali’s lifeless body. Kane says he will capture the Intercontinental Championship from Alberto Del Rio because they have a match at Judgement Day. Kane then turns the camera back to his face and begins laughing manically whilst holding his chains by his face. The camera abruptly becomes fuzzy before we return to a working one at ringside.
Jerry Lawler says that Kane has definitely sent a big message to Alberto here that no matter who he pays off there is no way he will stop the devil’s favourite demon. Lawler says that Kane vs. Khali was the next scheduled match but now we’ll see…
The Pittsburgh crowd erupts as the lights in the arena go off, a light up jacket then appears but suddenly it is flung off as the fireworks explode and this man’s theme hits…
Those cheers heard a few moments ago have now transformed into massive jeers as Wade Barrett was clearly mocking Chris Jericho’s entrance. Wade walks down to the ring all while laughing and claiming he outsmarted everyone. Matt Striker on commentary agrees with this statement on commentary claiming that he may not like Wade but that was brilliant. Wade enters the ring and raises his hand high in the air before turning to face the stage.
Here comes the last graduate of the Hart dungeon, Tyson Kidd to a huge ovation from the crowd. Tyson who is a good friend of Chris Jericho clearly doesn’t agree with what Wade Barrett’s actions here tonight. Tyson vaults over the top rope and stares down his opponent.
Wade Barrett vs. Tyson Kidd
The bell sounds and a lets go Tyson chant reverberates around the arena, Barrett and Tyson then lock up in the centre of the ring with Wade easily taking advantage due to his superior size and strength he throws Tyson into the ground and just laughs at the young Canadian who gets up to his feet, he quickly silences Barrett by sweeping his legs and attempting a Sharpshooter but Wade scampers onto the outside of the ring. We will come back to this match after the break.
And we’re back on Monday Night RAW; Wade Barrett is in complete control over Tyson here. Wade has Tyson locked in a leg crab in the centre of the ring. The young Canadian superstar’s screams can be heard as he tries to crawl to the ropes; a ruthless Wade Barrett however isn’t letting him budge as he grips onto his leg. Tyson then begins a fight back, he crawls and crawls and makes it to the bottom rope! Barrett however utilizes the referees 5 count and keeps the hold applied a little after Kidd reaches the ropes.
Wade then brings Tyson to his feet before driving his forearm into the youngsters face, continuing his onslaught Barrett picks Tyson up and onto his shoulder before hitting a powerslam, he then makes a cover. 1…2…Tyson gets his shoulder up! The crowd are doing their best to encourage Tyson back into this match but it doesn’t seem to be working as Barrett is just decimating his opponent. Tyson is still down after that powerslam and Wade is heading to the top rope. He smugly raises his hand in the air and then leaps going for an Elbow drop but Tyson moves out of the way! Wade ends up flying into the canvas, much to the crowds delight. Tyson then quickly takes advantage and attempts a bridge pin. 1…2…Wade powers out! Tyson has a lifeline; he exits onto the apron and waits for Barrett to get to his feet. Wade eventually gets to his feet and Tyson springboards over the top rope…BAM! Wade nails Kidd with a big boot as he flies towards him. Barrett picks up the dead weight of Kidd and hoists him onto his shoulders…WASTELAND! Barrett hits his finisher to great effect and he turns Kidd onto his stomach, he is going to apply the Barrett Clutch. Suddenly Barrett looks as though he’s had an epiphany; the Brit grabs Tyson’s legs and turns him over into a Liontamer! Barrett is using his enemies famous submission move, Tyson faintly begins to…TAP! TAP! TAP!
Winner: Wade Barrett via submission.
Wade Barrett’s performance is being praised here tonight by the commentary team; the fans however still don’t like him. He cockily raises his hand before he again begins to beat down Kidd. He is using the young man as a tool to get to Jericho by beating down his friend. Barrett pummels away at Kidd before sitting on his back, you know what’s coming…BARRETT CLUTCH! Barrett has locked in his submission move, Tyson is frantically tapping out but Wade won’t stop. The youngster begins to fade away as Barrett then releases the hold. This has been a great help for Dolph Ziggler too as he is scheduled to face Kidd in 13 days. Barrett’s theme music hits as he exits the ring and heads up the ramp leaving Tyson down inside the ring.
The commentary team hype up 4 more big matches here tonight, Triple H versus Big Show in a Street Fight, Eve versus Layla in the other Semi-Final of the Women’s Championship Tournament, Chris Jericho versus Dolph Ziggler and Sheamus versus WWE Champion CM Punk with The Miz as the special guest referee. A graphic then appears on screen hyping up Daniel Bryan in action next against Zack Ryder.
We then cut off screen to another vignette for Bray Wyatt. The vignette appears to be the same one which we saw last week. We then go back to the ring where Zack Ryder is posing with his theme sounding out around the arena.
Daniel Bryan then walks out from behind the curtain with AJ to some big heat. The pair appears to be extremely angry after Randy Orton’s recent mind games. Daniel seems to want to take out some of that aggression on his opponent here tonight.
Zack Ryder vs. Daniel Bryan
In an aggressive start Daniel takes control of the Long Island Iced Z by taking him into the corner and delivering some kicks to his midsection. Bryan then drags Ryder into the middle of the ring and kneels down behind him before he begins delivering elbows to Zack’s jaw. What aggression from Bryan, Zack may be out cold from those elbows. Bryan after releasing Zack heads up to the top rope before leaping and hitting a head-butt to the heart of Ryder. Zack has been completely decimated here, Daniel has shown aggression of the likes which we have never seen from him. Daniel instead of going for the cover then locks Zack in the YES! Lock immediately forcing him to, TAP! TAP! TAP!
Impressive work from Daniel Bryan here tonight, AJ his girlfriend quickly enters the ring and hugs her man. Bryan still has a look of anger on his face as Zack Ryder rolls out onto the outside, suddenly…
Randy Orton’s music hits to a huge pop from the crowd but there is no sign of the Apex Predator. Then from above much to Bryan and AJ’s dismay a Cage begins to slowly lower down, before it covers the ring Bryan and AJ exit to the outside leaving the Cage to enclose the ring. Strangely there appears to be a bag hanging with a piece of white paper attached from the corner of the cage. Daniel walks round to the announcer before taking a microphone. He states that he has had enough of Randy’s games; he says that the aggression he has just shown against Zack Ryder will be a lot worse at Judgement Day. Daniel then noticing the bag inside the Cage, he opens the door and cautiously enters ordering AJ to stay outside. Daniel then takes the bag from the top and it seems to be heavy, he quickly places it on the floor before taking the note off and reading it aloud. “Daniel, Daniel, Daniel. I warned you last week just you in the Cage with the Viper”. Suddenly Bryan shrieks as a LIVE VIPER! Crawls from out of the bag as the crowd pops huge, Daniel however quickly scatters from the ring and out of the Cage to his girlfriend AJ on the outside who is also clearly distraught. They both then start to run up the ramp as the camera pans back to the Snake slithering around in the cage as we go to commercial.
*I CAME TO PLAY*
The Consol Energy Center has erupted with jeers for the Awesome One, he casually waltzes out from behind the curtain with his black and white referee shirt on. He seems to be happy about the situation he is in tonight as the power is in his hands. He cockily raises both of his arms in the air waiting for the two competitors in this match.
Here comes Sheamus! He bounds out to the stage beating his chest to a huge ovation; he is ready to get his hands on CM Punk as he quickly enters the ring giving Miz a cold stare.
And another huge ovation as WWE champion CM Punk appears on the ramp; however he quickly throws his title onto the ground and charges to the ring. When he enters he is met by Sheamus, the pair start brawling in the ring and Miz calls for the bell to get us under way.
Sheamus vs. CM Punk
Special Guest Referee: The Miz
Both men are trading blows in the centre of the ring much to the delight of The Miz, Sheamus eventually takes control and works Punk into the corner he begins hammering away hitting him several times in the gut. Sheamus is then pulled away from Punk by Miz our referee who seems to be doing his job properly. Sheamus pulls Punk out and then clobbers him with a clothesline, he makes a cover. 1…Punk kicks out!
Straight back to work from the Irishman as he rags Punk up to his feet, he whips the Straightedge superstar to the ropes and as he rebounds towards him hits a-WAIT Punk ducks his clothesline attempt and the hits Sheamus with a spinning heel kick right to the chin. Sheamus quickly reels back up to his feet and falls into the corner, Punk begins the charge…STEP-UP HIGH KNEE connecting to Sheamus and now he rounds it off with a Bulldog. Punk makes a cover. 1…2…Sheamus just manages to kick out!
Punk wants to put Sheamus asleep and he is waiting for the Irishman to get to a vertical base, he does and Punk hoists him up. Sheamus on the other hand is fighting out of it delivering savage elbows to Punk’s chin. Suddenly Miz pulls Sheamus off of Punk’s shoulders leaving Punk extremely angry. He turns around to Miz who begins backing away pointing to his shirt with a huge smile on his face as Punk pulls his hand back to punch Miz he is grabbed and hoisted onto Sheamus’ shoulders…WHITE NOISE! Punk is sent crashing into the mat, Sheamus makes a cover. 1…2…Punk kicks out!
Miz has a deranged look on his face and he exits the ring to the outside, he picks up a Steel Chair and brings it back in the ring ordering Sheamus to use it. Sheamus stares at the chair contemplating what to do before Punk gets to his feet and kicks Sheamus in the side of the head forcing him to fall into Miz taking him out, Punk then picks up the rebounding Sheamus and hits a GO TO SLEEP! Punk has this thing won but Miz is down. Punk tries waking Miz up and eventually does, the Awesome One is clearly unhappy with Sheamus as he begins a fast count. 1…2…SHEAMUS KICKS OUT!
How did he kick out!? A fast count from Miz and he still kicks out. Punk holding onto his ribs then slowly heads for the top rope; he raises his hands high in homage to Randy Savage and leaps from the top ELBOW DROP! Punk hits it and hooks the leg. 1…2…3!? WAIT MIZ STOPPED COUNTING AT 2, HE IS STARING PUNK IN THE EYE! Punk is furious and he gets to his feet, he stalks Miz around the ring following him to each and every corner. Suddenly Miz throws a punch at Punk but it is blocked, Punk picks Miz up onto his shoulders! He’s going to hit the referee with a G.T.S, Punk turns around with Miz on his shoulders...BAM! Sheamus hits Punk with a Brogue Kick, Miz falls off onto the mat and Sheamus hooks the leg. 1…2…3! NOW BOTH SHEAMUS AND MIZ HAVE PINNED THE WWE CHAMPION IN SUCESSIVE WEEKS!
Winner: Sheamus via pinfall.
The crowd are mixed completely here as Sheamus and Punk both have a great following, the cheers however are stronger as Sheamus gets to his feet, THERE’S MIZ! Miz proceeds to clobber Sheamus from behind with that Steel Chair that was on the mat, Sheamus is wincing in pain as he falls to his knees; Miz then drops the chair in front of Sheamus and hooks his arms…SKULL CRUSHING FINALE ON THE STEEL CHAIR! Both of Miz’ opponents are down in the centre of the ring as the Awesome One raises his hands into the air. Could this be the scene at Judgement Day? Because for weeks now Miz has outsmarted his two opponents for the pay per view, you could be looking at your NEW WWE CHAMPION come Judgement Day.
We are welcomed back to Monday Night RAW by our commentary team who recap what happened before the break, they also say that this happened during the break as we cut to a video. The video shows a limo arriving and Chris Jericho exiting it, Josh Matthews asks him what he thought of Wade Barrett’s attack on his friend Tyson Kidd however he received no response as Jericho just removed his sunglasses and walked away with real aggression in his face. He faces Dolph Ziggler in a little while.
Big pop as Kofi Kingston and R-Truth bounce onto the stage. The pair begins to run and both leap into the air as the pyro explodes behind them. They then climb into the ring and pose on opposite turnbuckles.
The arena erupts with boos as the music of our Tag Team Champions hit, Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks then emerge from the back with their Tag Team titles draped on their shoulders however they’re not wearing their ring gear, Reks then lifts a microphone towards his face as their music cuts out. Tyler says that he and Curt got to the arena late tonight as they were out partying because as everyone knows they’re the WWE Tag Team Champions. Reks says that as Tag Team Champions they don’t really need to compete in an unimportant match. He says that he feels the fans pain that they won’t see their heroes wrestle but to be honest they don’t care, the pair then turn and head to the back as the fans boo them out of the building. Meanwhile in the ring Kofi and Truth are both gutted and they both go to exit the ring. Then from the crowd Mark Henry and AW jump the barricade, Henry climbs into the ring and clobbers Kofi and Truth from behind. It appears AW was bluffing earlier tonight when he stated none of his clients were in the building tonight. Henry then tosses Kofi away like a rag doll before lifting up Truth…WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM! Truth is down and he rolls to the outside, AW then rolls into the ring, barking orders at Henry. Mark drags Kofi to his feet and holds his arms wide; AW unloads with punches to the Ghanaian superstar. AW gets in his face and talk’s trash to him but Kofi spits right back in his face to the crowd’s delight. Henry takes matters into his own hands as he scoops Kofi up and hits a WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM! Kofi is down and out; he begins rolling around in agony as AW unleashes a few stomps on him seeking revenge for the spit. Henry and AW begin to leave the ring to a chorus of boos, the camera pans onto the destruction that has been caused by really just one man…MARK HENRY.
*JULY 23RD 2012*
*HERE TO SHOW THE WORLD*
Big heat in the arena as the show-off Dolph Ziggler is introduced by Justin Roberts; he comes out onto the stage flicking his hair and begins to walk down the ramp. Suddenly from behind him Chris Jericho runs out to a big pop, wearing rock star like leather pants and suave shoes Jericho begins to beat down Ziggler. Wade Barrett sent a message before and it looks like Jericho is sending a message right now, bouncing Ziggler’s head off the barricade repeatedly Jericho’s fury is visible Barrett took out his friend and Ziggler’s enemy earlier tonight. Chris with a firm grip on Dolph’s hair then walks to ringside before forcing Ziggler’s head into the apron and then into the steel steps forcing him to flop onto the floor. The furious Jericho then pulls back the padding on the floor exposing the concrete to which he grabs Ziggler and hits a snap suplex right onto the concrete. He’s not finished yet as he grabs Ziggler’s legs and twists him over into a Liontamer! Jericho lets out a primal scream as he rips Ziggler’s body into pieces. Jericho then releases the hold and lets out a smile, his theme music hits as he backs up the ramp. Ziggler is a mess on the outside and we’re going to a commercial break.
Well it’s Divas action next and here is Eve, she’s looking to advance in this tournament but she faces tough opposition. Eve enters the ring and glamorously poses on the top rope.
And here’s her opponent Layla who comes out to a mild pop from the crowd. Layla climbs under the bottom rope and she means business right here.
Women’s Championship Tournament Semi-Final Match
Eve vs. Layla
An explosive start here as Layla is the first out of the blocks, she soars through the air and lands on Eve she begins ragging her hair but Eve also has a good grip on Layla’s, all of this while they roll around on the floor. Eventually both girls release each other and get to their feet but BAM! Eve hits a clothesline on Layla, the assistant to Dylan Kelly then drags Layla closer to the corner and she climbs the top rope ready for a Moonsault…Layla moves forcing Eve to crash into the mat. Layla quickly picks Eve up and hits a Neckbreaker. 1…2…3!
Winner: Layla via pinfall.
So the match is set, Layla will take on Beth Phoenix for the vacant Women’s Championship at Judgement Day. Layla celebrates on the top rope as Striker comments on how quick she took out Eve, The Glamazon Beth Phoenix then appears at the top of the ramp, a stare down then ensues between the two ladies as we cut to a Don’t try this at home video.
Time for the main event as Big Show is here to a little pop, he is still angry after last week’s events. The giant waits in the ring for Triple H the man who cost him a WWE Title Match.
Well this is easily the biggest pop of the night as Triple H comes out with a Sledgehammer in hand. He is also dressed for the occasion too as he is wearing gym and a t-shirt instead of his usual gear. He doesn’t do his usual pose on the apron; he just stands in the corner waiting for the bell.
Big Show vs. Triple H
We are underway here and Triple H charges right at Show from the off wielding that Sledgehammer, his attack is proved futile however as Show nails him with a big boot. The Giant then grabs Hunter and chucks him over the top rope to the outside. Show follows on and he is searching underneath the ring he eventually pulls out a Kendo Stick just as Hunter gets to his feet, BAM! Show nails Triple H over the head with the stick as the crowd say ooooooohhhhh. Not just one shot as Show continues striking Hunter over 10 times across the back and his scars are already visible. Show then starts pulling apart the announce table with ease, he flings everything on the desk to the floor however he does pick up a TV monitor.
Show gets ready to strike Triple H who is just getting to his feet; he ends up eating some steel steps though as Hunter dropkicks him in the leg as he charges towards him. The Game staggers to his feet and he begins to gander underneath the ring eventually pulling out a Trash Can. He immediately smashes Show across the back with the can before placing it over his head, the Kendo Stick used on HHH before is now his weapon as he smashes the can which is on Show’s head before doing his famous crotch chop and hitting him once more.
The Game begins to manically gaze at the announce table, he eventually tries to move the dead weight of Show and he succeeds by getting him adjacent to the announce table, UH-OH! Show has grabbed Hunter by the throat and he’s lifted him high…CHOKESLAM THROUGH THE ANNOUNCE TABLE! Hunter’s body is a mangled wreck and Show is smiling about it. Pinfalls and submissions however can only occur inside the ring. Show however throws some Steel Steps into the ring before he wanders over to Triple H, using great strength Show lifts Hunter up for a Military Press and launches him over the top rope and into the ring. Wait a second, Hunter has his Sledgehammer in hand while he is down and Show is now positioning the steps.
Big Show grabs Hunter and wraps his bear like paw around his throat, SLEDGEHAMMER! Triple H nails him in the jaw with the Sledgehammer and Show is bent over. Triple H uses all he has left after going through the announce table, he hooks Show’s arms…PEDIGREE ON THE STEEL STEPS! What a shattering thud, Hunter places his arm over Show. 1…2…3!
Winner: Triple H via pinfall.
What a big win for The Game, the referee raises his hand while he is down on the mat and his theme hits around the arena. Jerry and Matt say that Triple H is going to need that instinct he has shown tonight come Judgement Day. Suddenly we cross backstage to Dylan Kelly who is sat in his office watching the ring on his TV, the smug look on his face soon changes as a loud bang is heard from outside. Dylan Kelly panicking rushes to his office door and open it, he is not met with a happy sight as a banner with the WWE logo on it has been set on fire right outside his office. RAW goes off the air with Dylan Kelly’s worried face and the logo on fire while Matt Striker says “John Cena has gone too far King, he’s gone too far”.

Re: WWE: The Cult's Way
I’m never keen on having random owners come in and just take over, I don’t think McMahon would ever sell to be honest but I’ll simply overlook it for this. This Kelly authority figure is seemingly a menacing heel you’re going for and to be honest that’s how the boss should be. Pretty standard stuff regarding Cena here and a nice announcement for the main event later on.
Punk coming out was surprising but connecting the two main storylines is something I like to see so kudos there. Pretty standard stuff again here with punk and then Miz, it’s hard to really comment as there’s not a ton of detail but it got the point across. Another big match for later on now set.
Del Rio finally using his cash? Good to see, wish WWE would do this, makes sense for him to hire Khali.
Seemed a pretty nice opening contest here and I like the idea of Mysterio and Cara teaming. Two flashy guys who to be honest aren’t gonna set the world alight in singles competition so why not pair them up? Good win for them in the hunt for gold.
Anything done in BTB is better than real life revolving the Divas and a tournament is a great idea. Big win for Beth but as expected to be honest, never thought Kaitlyn would pose any threat. Hopefully it’s Layla in the final for her.
Standard interview from AW here, the whole Kofi turning situation intrigued me, I’d love to see it in real life tbh so here would be good too.
Didn’t particularly like this with Kane and Khali. Probably because anything involving Khali is useless boring lol. Just the whole chokeslamming him through a food table was a bit cheesy though makes Kane look legit. The line after from Kane was also just…there. Nothing really to it. Del Rio/Kane over the I.C. title is refreshing though, two solid guys going to battle there.
This was the highlight of the show thus far for me. Barrett imitating Jericho was great and the match afterwards was a really strong statement from him. Excellent stuff heading into their match at Judgment Day, though this doesn’t do a lot for Kidd.
Squash match territory here for Bryan, resounding win which is a bit disappointing for Ryder but hey ho. Aftermath was more important and certainly a unique approach to this feud. Cage match should be epic. Just wasn’t so sure about the message on the note, didn’t quite make sense to me and then how Bryan got out of the cage, surely Orton would’ve had it locked?
Enjoyed this match and following segment. Makes Miz look like a total jackass while furthering the whole feud nicely. Big win for Sheamus also, even though it was tainted, gives Punk a real uphill task too. Good job.
Big statement made from AW and Henry here. Sheer dominance from the World’s Strongest Man and good to see too. Would’ve liked a bit more from the tag champs but never mind, main thing here was the Kofi/Truth/AW stuff.
Pleased to see Layla get the win here and should be a good contest between her and Beth when they meet.
Main event seemed to be solid and it’s a HUGE win for Trips, sending a big message in the process too. Aftermath with Kelly was interesting and the burning of the flag shows just how far Cena’s gone but I’m not the biggest fan of it to be honest. I understand Cena wanting to get his hands on Kelly so bad but not entirely sure why he is targeting the company? After all they pay his cheques lol. Did I miss something maybe? I’m not sure. The whole pitting Trips and Cena against each other though is very clever and a very good dick heel move from the new chairman.
On the whole, a decent show. A few things I felt were a bit off or lacking in something but some of the action was good and most things did get the job done or got the point across well enough. Obviously it’s a little hard in recap form and maybe a tiny bit more detail wouldn’t go a miss BUT you certainly have potential if you stick with this, your ideas are pretty solid and your presentation is strong also. Keep going with it and I’ve no doubts you’ll only further improve.

Re: WWE: The Cult's Way
Pretty decent opening here with Kelly now as an established heel, good job in doing that by the way. I like the order of keeping Cena away from the WWE but we all know he's bound to appear at sometime, maybe not on this episode but in the future for sure. Punk's interruption was good here saying that the WWE Title should be focused on more and during his reign, the prestige of the title has definitely gone up. The little banter between Punk and Kelly was decent as well while having Miz come out was good too, setting up the main event for tonight. Another dick-ish move by Kelly here.
Whoa, good win here for Rey/Cara, they're definitely becoming more of a team now and I love it. That move at the end was a helluva move with the La Mistica followed by the Springboard Legdrop, definitely a finisher that's devastating and brings the crowd more into the match. Your match writing has improved a lot man, keep it up.
A decent divas match? Well that's a first. I definitely think that the divas have some talent so it was cool to see these two ladies slug it out. Kaitlyn showed something here as she did take Beth further than I thought she would. Good job selling the effects caused by Kaitlyn to Beth here, making Kaitlyn look even more like a threat. But we all knew Beth was coming out the winner in this one, continue to build this up good man, can't wait to read more matches like these for the divas.
Plan backfires here for ADR, but Kane looks like a badass after taking out someone like Khali. Hopefully we don't see more of Khali, one night is enough here. I do like it that you're using Del Rio's money here to his advantage, definitely would be a good storyline if WWE ever did this. Wonder who ADR will hire next.
I did think that Tyson Kidd looked really weak here but you made Barrett look like a million bucks here. His submission is really going over well but I did think you could've had Kidd come out with the upperhand in this exchange. Maybe you have Kidd fight back and get out of the submission after Barrett inflicted a lot of damage on him already. And whoa, definitely an interesting segment here with Daniel Bryan and Randy here. Orton needs to appear really soon so that there will be more bad blood between the two. The feud has been great but I think an Orton appearance would make it even better.
Miz is looking really good here, but I don't think he'll win the title. Kinda hard to believe that Miz called it down the entire time except in the end, would've thought he would play with his opponents more. But anyway, with Punk losing to both Sheamus and Miz, he's gotta get some momentum pretty soon, interested to see how you make him do that.
The attack from Henry was something I could see happening, making AW's faction look even stronger. I believe Kofi will turn and join up with AW, can't wait to see how you book heel Kofi. As for Jericho, I understand that you wanted him to make a statement just how Barrett did earlier but this does nothing for Ziggler and Kidd who were both demolished. You could've had Barrett cost Jericho the match, or something simple like playing Barrett's music or having him at ringside leading to Jericho losing would've been great.
Hmm, Pedigree on the steel steps? I'm trying to imagine that, lol. Nonetheless, HHH did good here and I like how you had the commentary team say that HHH needs to perform like he did tonight to get the win against Cena. The burning of the flag kind of confused me here. Isn't Cena furious at Kelly? Not the WWE? But anyway, Cena should appear pretty soon to make sense of all of this.
Overall, a decent show. Some things could've been changed but there were a lot of positives here. I'm liking the feud with Barrett/Jericho but again, that was something I would've changed tonight while the feud with Kelly has been interesting. Keep writing man, onto the next show! (Y)
