Re: WWE: The Revolution
Sunday, September 16th, 2012
Boston has had its fair share of revolutions, most notably the 1773 Boston Tea Party as residents rebelled against taxes. This past Sunday Night at the TD Garden, another revolution has hit Boston. CM Punk retained his WWE Championship over John Cena with the assistance of Jack Swagger and Matt Morgan all apparent clients to the diabolical Paul Heyman. Cena was overcome by incredible odds leaving him prey to the GTS and pinned in his own hometown. Paul Heyman defiantly declared that the future of World Wrestling Entertainment is officially on the brink of a revolution. Heyman called out to anyone in the back that wants to finally take back what is rightfully theirs, who wants to stop being buried by politics or because you don’t have the right “look” and anyone who wants to take over WWE to come to Raw tomorrow night as the Revolution begins.
Dolph Ziggler had his own personal revolution as he not only defeated Randy Orton but then cashed in with his Money in the Bank contract over Alberto Del Rio who took a Brogue Kick from a frustrated Sheamus after Del Rio with the assistance of Ricardo won the Championship.
R-Truth left his former partner, Kofi Kingston unconscious in the middle of the ring shouting “Jimmy told me to do it!” after Prime Time Players won the Tag Team Championships.
The only other title change from Night of Champions took place when Eve was triumphant over Kaitlyn and Layla. Meanwhile, Antonio Ceasara
Daniel Bryan defeated his rival Kane and two Champions walked away with their titals in tact as The Miz and Antonio Ceasara walked away with the Intercontinental and United States championships respectively. The Miz, however, was left wondering how much longer he will remain Champion as Ryback interrupted the celebration chanting “Feed Me More!”
It is fitting that in Bridgeport, Connecticut close to where the WWE Heaadquarters are located that the so-called Revolution is beginning tomorrow night at RAW.
Re: WWE: The Revolution
I like the premise, but who did Miz and Ceasaro face at NoC? did they face Mysterio and Santino?
just a note, I would avoid using yellow. Its near impossible to read against the white background.

Live! From Webster Bank Arena, Bridgeport, Connecticut
Monday, September 17th, 2012
You are now tuning in, to the world’s greatest
Tonight’s the Night, bright lights, hyped crowd…
Monday Night RAW opened with the 2012 Video Package, but instead of going immediately to the Webster Bank Arena instead camera’s are live only 20 miles away in the front of WWE Headquarters where Champion CM Punk stood with his Championship belt. CM Punk proceeded to declare a revolution. He reminded fans of Jerry Lawler’s outcry that Punk “turned his back on WWE Universe” after he made Rock go to sleep. He then said that he is standing up for WWE Universe. In his own words…
As RAW returned from commercial break, Zack Ryder was in the ring for his opening bout against Ryback. During Ryback’s entrance Michael Cole reminds fans that last night he came out during The Miz’ celebration as he retained his Intercontinental Championship against Rey Mysterio. Ryback chanted “Feed Me A Champion” that night to the dismay of The Miz. This match was a quick five minutes with Ryder only getting a few offensive maneuvers before being squashed with the Shell Shocked and Ryback gained victory by pinfall. Following Ryback’s win, The Miz came out to respond to Ryback’s taunts at Night of Champions.
Michael Cole was excited to see Dolph Ziggler and Vickie Guerrero arrive via limo even going as far as calling him a “Hall of Famer” much to the angst of Jerry Lawler. As RAW cam back from a commercial break Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara defeated Primo and Epico in a well fought, back and forth tag team battle.
The next segment belonged to Dolph Ziggler, World Heavyweight Champion and his valet, Vickie Guerrero. Dolph talked about defeating Randy Orton cleanly last night before taking out the Champion. Michael Cole reminded fans that Dolph Ziggler cashed in at Night of Champions after Sheamus crushed Alberto Del Rio with a “Brogue Kick” even though it was banned. Lawler said that it was cowardly by Sheamus, but he was reacting to be cheated out of his title by Del Rio. As Dolph was speaking he was interrupted by Paul Heyman who said that there is only one true Champion in WWE and that is CM Punk.
Michael Cole told fans in attendance and live watching on TV that they can tweet their vote to who battles Antonio Cesaro for his United States Championship: Brodus Clay, Damien Sandow or Christian. As RAW came back from commercial break, AJ Lee was in the back on the cell phone sounding ery defensive that she is in ‘complete control’. AJ then closes the obvious one-sided conversation by saying ‘thank you, Mr. McMahon’. She hung up looking exhausted and looked to Randy Orton and said that he better win tonight.
Twitter votes were counted and Brodus Clay came out to his usual entrance. This will be Brodus Clay’s first title shot. Antonio Cesaro and Aksana came out next and the match went back and forth for approximately ten minutes. At one point, Brodus Clay hit Antonio Cesaro with a running cross body (‘Ah Funk It!’) to a near fall. As the battle raged on, Damien Sandow came out to and hit Clay with a chair against his back without the ref seeing it. Clay no-sold the chair shot, turned to grab Sandow and was rolled up for a pinfall by Cesaro who retained his title. Afterwards, Damien Sandow took the mic and said ”You’re welcome” to Cesaro and presumably the WWE Universe.
Josh Matthews stands in the back with new Tag Team Champions, PrimeTime Players who do their typical taunt of ‘millions of dollars’ and their dance. Titus O’Neill and Darren Young treat this backstage segment as a party and are barely understandable. They do confirm they are not afraid of the re-match on Friday Night. As they continue their party, Tyson Kidd comes up to them and sarcastically congratulates them before telling them it will be a short lived title reign.
After another recap of the opening segment with CM Punk, Daniel Bryan comes out to the loudest ovation of the night. His opponent for this match is Wade Barrett. Both men battled in what easily could be considered the Match of the Night. The strength of Wade Barrett was evident at the beginning, tossing Daniel Bryan around the ring and eventually Bryan’s response changed from confident to concerned. It wasn’t until a powerbomb was reversed into a frankenstiener that Daniel Bryan began to get some upper hand. Bryan began to target the knees of Barrett trying to get him to the ring to start exploiting submission moves. As the match approached the 15-minute mark, Barrett clotheslined Bryan over the top rope and to the outside. Both men regained composure and began to exchange blows leading away from the ring and up the ramp. The referee hesitantly counted to ten causing both to be counted out.
New WWE Diva Champion, Eve stands in the back with her championship. Teddy Long walks up to her and congratulated Eve on her title win. Long then asked Eve if she believes in the Diva division and wants what is best for WWE. Eve estatically (almost over the top) said yes. Long smiled and said she will love to hear who they signed to a contract and that she will find out on Friday. Eve looked concerned before putting on her fakest smile for the camera.
As RAW reached its third hour, CM Punk came out to a mixed reaction from the crowd carrying a manila envelope along with his WWE Championship. . The bi-partisan crowd was all on their feet as CM Punk eloquently began to tell everyone how he is the “Best in the World”. Punk tells the WWE Universe that a Revolution has begun and that he is not the leader but ‘they are’. They wanted to see John Cena be wiped out and he obliged. Now, they want to see one true Champion and CM Punk was at WWE Headquarters to get the approval. He teases what is in an envelope he was carrying until his microphone all of a sudden cuts out. As he tries to get another microphone he is interrupted by AJ Lee. AJ tells Punk that ‘plans have changed’ and then tells Punk that he has a match right know against The Big Show.
Big Show has a ten minute match with WWE Champion, CM Punk. The battle goes back and forth with neither wrestler being able to get much momentum. The announcers are shocked as CM Punk eventually get the upperhand and causes Big Show to tap out to the Anacanda Vice in the center of the ring. After the clean victory by CM Punk he takes a microphone and yells “Respect” in the face of Big Show before throwing the mic down and leaving the ring.
AJ Lee watches with frustration in the back when Vickie Guerrero asks her how its possible that she has lost control in such epic ways. AJ Lee turns to ignore her and Paul Heyman meets her. Heyman suggests that AJ Lee needs some serious help if she wants to keep her job from piranha’s like that. Heyman called Guerrero a “bottom feeder” and “lucky she has that last name”.
Michael Cole teases that Booker T will have an announcement regarding the possibility of a Sheamus suspension for using the Brogue Kick on Alberto Del Rio. Following that, a quick segment with David Otunga who stands in the back carrying the infamous water bottle. Otunga says his client, Alberto Del Rio, has a series of complaints he will air on Friday as he is seeking retribution for the Brogue Kick and the farce title victory by Dolph Ziggler.
Kane & Randy Orton def. Matt Morgan & Jack Swagger via DQ
The Main Event was an incredible debut by Matt Morgan and also notable was Swagger and Morgan’s ability to work together. The match switched several times as momentum was shared between the superstars. At one point Morgan hit a running big boot on Randy Orton, his former finisher called the ‘Carbon Footprint’. Orton refused to die as the announcers sold that Orton is fighting for the sake of WWE as a company. Evantually Randy Orton reached a desperate tag to Kane who cleared the ring at one point. Kane threw Swagger around the ring and kept the momentum for some time until Morgan blocked a chokeslam.
This match did not have a fair conclusion, as at this point chaos began. Orton came into the ring to fight Morgan and the four men came to blows in the center of the ring. The crowd was torn as to why Cody Rhodes walked to the ring. Rhodes grabbed a chair and snuck under the ropes and proceede to crush Kane with a chair. Rhodes and Swagger kicked Kane out of the ring as Randy Orton was left with three superstars against him. Paul Heyman shouted with glee as all three men pounded Randy Orton. CM Punk came back to the ringside and applauded as Matt Morgan crushed Orton with the ‘Mount Morgan Drop’ on a steel chair. Fans boo’ed wildly as the five men stood in the center of the ring proudly.
The final thing we hear is Jerry Lawler, saying “the fate of WWE is in the hands of these tyrants”
Re: WWE: The Revolution
* It is reported that Vince McMahon was furious backstage with Paul Heyman's comments regarding Randy Orton's suspension. The WWE Wellness policy is not to be mentioned on air and Heyman was in clear violation. It will be interesting to see if Vince and writers try to tame Heyman's outbursts in the future.
* WWE.com reported Randy Orton as injured from Monday Night Raw. This is clearly a work as Randy will be off camera for 3-4 weeks for filming.
* John Cena is expected to be at RAW next week.
* Ric Flair is rumored to be signing a contract with WWE soon and could be appearing as soon as Hell In A Cell Pay Per View.
Re: WWE: The Revolution
21/09/2012 Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia PA
* Show opened with Booker T calling out Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio. Booker T hesitantly suspended Sheamus for using the Brogue Kick without his consent. Sheamus was escorted from the arena. Alberto Del Rio was then told because his victory was not a clean one he is not the clear cut #1 contender for the World Championship. When asked whom is the #1 contender, Booker T stated he is undecided.
* Damien Sandow def. Tyson Kidd; prior to his match Damien Sandow discusses how fans can't be trusted to make proper decisions and how he is the true next in line for the United States Championship.
* Kofi Kingston confronts R-Truth who says he doesn't recognize Kofi Kingston and at one point calls him "Uncle Tyrone?"
* Jack Swagger w/Paul Heyman def. Ted DiBiase
* After the victory, Paul Heyman says that Jack Swagger is no longer going to be pushed around by the "establishment". Heyman says that Swagger is just another person ready to get what he deserves.
* IC Champion The Miz def. Tensai; following the match Ryback came out to the ramp and used his "Feed Me More" chant to intimidate the Champion.
* Eve is backstage with Teddy Long, and the Diva's Champion is introduced to MsChif (former NWA and various other Independent circuit women's wrestler). MsChif gives some sort of dialogue that is not english and Eve looks visibly shaken.
* Layla def. Diva's Champion Eve in a non-title match; Eve continue to look bothered by her introduction to MsChif and distracted to be pinned by Layla.
* PrimeTime Player's cut a backstage promo about how they are going to keep their titles.
* Daniel Bryan is backstage going up to Booker T explaining how he should be #1 contender. He is interrupted by Kane who says that he should be. Next, Wade Barrett comes out and tells Booker T the draw on Monday and the fact that he is the greatest fighter in WWE means he should be #1 contender. Booker T looks unconvinced.
* MAIN EVENT, PrimeTime Players def. R-Truth & Kofi Kingston; R-Truth abandons Kofi Kingston as the PTP gain another victory. As R-Truth is about to leave, he stops and turns and sprints back to the ring causing PTP to flee. R-Truth was not helping his partner, however, instead he laid Kofi Kingston out with a powerbomb.
* World Champion Dolph Ziggler comes out for a pre-planned Championship victory celebration. He is accompanied as always by Vickie Guerrero. Ziggler's part is interrupted by Alberto Del Rio attack from behind when Ricardo distracted.
