Hello, and welcome to my new WWE '13 Diary. This is a diary that is based off the game WWE '13, which I use to sim the results and occasionaly use to take videos for this diary. The Attitude Era stars are present in WWE '13, and as such, in my diary as well. The layout is streamlined for people who have both little time and lots of time. I do summaries of each show's month, and then post PPV results. Meaning it takes 2 posts to get through a full month. Hopefully you enjoy it, I'd love to hear what you think in the comments!

THE ALLIANCE VS. THE ELIMINATORS
These two stables' feud has been brewing since the Royal Rumble. Originally, Austin and Lesnar turned heel to join McMahon in the Alliance. Edge was then brought in. Once CM Punk got fed up with McMahon and formed the anti-Alliance group known as The Eliminators, Edge got tired of Vince's orders and jumped ship to the Eliminators. The Eliminators then brought in Dolph Ziggler and The Rock as replacements. Now, with things set to boil over, there will be 3 matches at Summerslam, consisting of Eliminators vs. Alliance stars. Whoever wins the most takes over the company.
THE INDUSTRY VS. MARK HENRY & THE MIZ
The Industry came in with a bang, attacking and laying out the current tag team champions, Mark Henry & The Miz. Things continued to worsen for the champions as The Industry would interfere in all of their matches, completely screwing them over. The titles are on the line at No Mercy, who will emerge victorious?
UNDERTAKER VS. KANE
After Kane made his tripumphant return in his attitude persona, he teamed with his brother and the two went after the tag team championships. However, after multiple losses, Undertaker snapped and attacked his brother, resulting in a heel turn and the crowd booing the deadman for the first time in years. He wasn't alone in his feelings, however, with a recent return of Paul Bearer, and the proceeding decision of Bearer to support the Undertaker against Kane. After Kane won the WWE Undisputed Championship at Money In The Bank, suddenly, this feud concerns not only the title, but championship contenders Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar as well.
RYBACK VS. TRIPLE H
After a fatal four way #1 Contender's match at Unforgiven, where Ryback prevented Triple H from winning, the Game went berserk on Big Hungry, attacking him on Raw. Things only got worse for the two throughout the month, resulting in Ryback getting a victory over Triple H at Money In The Bank. Now, with the feud set to explode, who will emerge the victory in this battle of predators?
CHRIS JERICHO VS. DANIEL BRYAN
After Chris Jericho won the European Championship, his ego reached an all time high as he created open challenges, and took out his opponents systematically. But now, Jericho may have met his match in the young Daniel Bryan. Bryan has a pinfall victory over Jericho, but will he be able to win the championship from Y2J?
WWE.COM RECENT NEWS
-The United States Championship will be retired at No Mercy,and a new championship will be introduced and crowned at Summerslam.
-WWE now has a show called Heat on Wednesdays that features your favorite WWE Stars. Think of WWE Main Event meets Sunday Night Heat.
-Randy Orton was injured at Unforgiven and was scheduled to be out for 60 days, meaning his return would be in time for Summerslam. Unfortunately, Orton re-injured his shoulder training, and will be out for a further 30 days, setting his return for somewhere around Hell In A Cell.
Things were harsh in the month of July, and no strangers to this were Ryback and Triple H. The two offered harsh words about each other in interviews, with Ryback vowing to "destroy the game, once and for all..." Triple H would answer back by interfering in a Ryback vs. Tensai match, and hitting Big Hungry with a sledgehammer. These two will stop at nothing to end each other. In a one on one match, the two men fought to a double count out, showing that their animosity for one another can't be settled in a standard match.
And with the Eliminators and Alliance tearing into each other, resulting in attacks from both sides backstage, and in one instance, CM Punk and the Eliminators destroying and blowing up[/QUOTE] Mr. McMahon limo with a bomb. With their final encounter not scheduled until Summerslam, nobody knows what either of these stables will go to to end each other.
In other news, Dolph Ziggler delivered an epic promo in week 3, claiming that he was being underutilized by his own boss and stable mate, Vince McMahon. While he made it clear that he stands with the Alliance, he doesn't trust Vince anymore than Punk. This prompted Vince to come out, and the two exchanged heavy words. While they stand in Alliance, it's not clear how fragile the alliance is at this point.
The Alliance and Eliminators wouldn't limit their animosity and hate for one another to just Raw. The two would constantly play mind games with one another on Smackdown, including Vince McMahon himself interfering in CM Punk's main event match in week 3 and delivering a devastating chair shot to the straight edge superstar. It was indeed a month of victory for the Alliance on Smackdown, coming away with 3/4's of the wins of all of their matches.
Meanwhile, the Undertaker and Kane saw their feuds reach new heights. With the recent resurfacing of the Undertaker's supernatural powers, he didn't hesitate to bring a chunk of the ceiling backstage crashing down on Kane, or, as in the case of week 2, lighting his own brother on fire. However, in week 3, Kurt Angle rushed out and attacked both Undertaker and Kane, laying them out, before announcing that he's cashing in his rematch clause at No Mercy!
Young hotshot Intercontinental Champion Justin Gabriel is also making a large impact of his own. After defeating Alberto Del Rio and RVD at Unforgiven to win the title, he's been on a roll, suffering only one loss to RVD in the whole month. Can anyone stop this young kid from reaching heights he was only dreaming of a few short years ago?
Things continue to grow more and more tense between tag team champions Mark Henry & The Miz, who have held the titles for most of this year, and newly-founded tag team The Industry, compromised of the Mexican Aristocrat Alberto Del Rio, and the self-proclaimed wrestling God JBL. The Industry has resorted to attacking the champions backstage and verbally assaulting them in insult-ridden interviews. This feud has reached its boiling point, and is sure to boil over at No Mercy
It was a month of Jericho, as Chris Jericho not only appeared every week on Heat to remind us that he's the self-proclaimed "best European champion the WWE has ever seen", but also to lay out most of his competition. In particular, Jericho found himself at odds with Daniel Bryan, who managed to score a pinfall on Y2J.
Mr. McMahon also made his debut on Heat, announcing that the new Championship that will debut after No Mercy will be the WWE Championship, and we will now have 3 major championships!
It was an intense night of war last night at No Mercy. So, let's not waste any time. Who won and who lost? Let's find out!
FIRST BLOOD MATCH
PAUL WIGHT VS. BOOKER T
No Mercy kicked off with a rivalry that's pitted the 5 time world champion against the giant. Wight had control in the beginning of the match, but Booker T fought back once he got his hands on a chair. The end came when Booker went to nail Wight with the chair, but Wight kicked the chair into Booker's face, busting him open. 12:31
Things would then transition to Todd Grisham interviewing Y2J, who vowed to end Daniel Bryan's "egotistical arrogance by forcing him to suffer defeat." Strong words, but not unexpected, given how confident Y2J has been over the past month. And rightfully so, he came away with a victory nearly every week on Heat.
A video package detailing the Industry vs. Miz & Mark Henry played, showing us the intense hate between the two teams.
WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS
THE MIZ & MARK HENRY (C) VS. THE INDUSTRY (ALBERTO DEL RIO & JBL)
This was a hard fought match on both sides, with everyone giving it their all. The end came when JBL hit the clothesline from hell on The Miz and used the ropes to help him get the pin. 6:41
The Industry then cut a promo about how amazing they are for winning the titles.
STEEL CAGE MATCH
RYBACK VS. TRIPLE H
These two gave each other their all, and ended when Ryback speared Triple H through the cage wall, with both men spilling to the outside, forcing this one to end in a draw. 7:51
Backstage, brothers Undertaker and Kane crossed paths, ending in a tense showdown.
TENSAI (C) VS. SIN CARA
This match was dominated by Tensai, who ended it quickly with a sitout powerbomb. 3:01
Mr. McMahon then came out and officially retired the United States Championship, marking Tensai as the last WWE United States Champion. Mr. McMahon then told Tensai he was in the running for the newly instated WWE Championship!
CHRIS JERICHO (C) VS. DANIEL BRYAN
Bryan and Jericho both put in strong performances, this match had tons of high spots, including Bryan dropkicking Jericho off the ladder. In the end, Jericho powerbombed Bryan off the ladder through a table, then retrieved his title to retain. 20:04
Then we got a glimpse of Justin Gabriel's background, as a promo of the young African superstar aired.
Backstage, Josh Matthews asked Justin Gabriel how he felt about his upcoming match. He said he was confident, and looking forward to the action.
JUSTIN GABRIEL (C) VS. CODY RHODES VS. BIG BOSS MAN
Boss Man had control for most of this match, taking out both Rhodes and Gabriel. Gabriel then hit a powerful kick on Boss Man, but Rhodes snuck in and threw Gabriel out, covering Boss Man for the pin! 12:05
After the match, Rhodes cut an angst-filled promo about how this has been a long time coming, before raising his title in triumph.
WWE UNDISPUTED CHAMPIONSHIP
HELL IN A CELL
KANE (C) VS. UNDERTAKER VS. KURT ANGLE
This match escalated quickly, with spots including Kane chokeslamming Undertaker off the cell, and Angle hitting the Angle Slam on Kane through the top of the cell, to the ring. In the end, Undertaker caught Angle off the top rope and delivered a thunderous last ride, before getting the pin. New Champion! 14:34
Vince McMahon and CM Punk exchanged unkind words backstage, both vowing to eliminate the other next month at Summerslam.
THE ALLIANCE (STONE COLD & DOLPH ZIGGLER) VS. THE ELIMINATORS (JOHN CENA & SHAWN MICHAELS)
These four gave it their all, and it looked like a victory for the Eliminators, until Brock Lesnar ran out and took out Cena and Michaels single handedly, ending this one in a DQ. 7:41
A video package plays, detailing the Rock versus Edge feud.
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
EDGE (C) VS. THE ROCK
These two fought to the bitter end. When CM Punk walked out and distracted The Rock, Edge took advantage, spearing The Rock and getting the pinfall. 12:41
After the match, Edge and Punk celebrated as the audience cheered them on.
Things were fast, furious, and hardcore in the month leading up to Summerslam, and none knew this more than Edge. His rivalry with the Rock continued to escalate, with the controversial outcome of their match at the end of No Mercy leaving the Great One with a bitter perspective of the champion. Rock's fellow Alliance member Mr. McMahon took note, immediately scheduling a rematch for Summerslam, where any member of the Alliance or Eliminators is banned from ringside. He didn't stop there, though, scheduling a title defense against the Rock for that very night on Week 1, where the rest of the Alliance interfered and cost Edge his World Heavyweight Championship. Things would continue to deter between the two throughout August, though, resulting in the two interfering in each other's matches and attacking each other backtage. The Rock did manage to defeat CM Punk one on one on the Raw before Summerlsam, however.
Things also got bigger in scope for the Ryback/Triple H feud, which escalated to the title picture in week 1, with both men demanding a #1 contender's match for a title. Mr. McMahon announced in week 3 that, for the resurrected WWE Championship, there will be a Fatal 4 Way match at Summerslam. Participating will be Triple H, Ryback, Christian, and a mystery opponent. That certainly didn't stop Ryback or Triple H from assaulting each other, and at one point, Ryback Shellshock'd Stephanie McMahon, leaving Triple H thirsty for blood at Summerslam.
And speaking of mystery wrestlers, cryptic promos began airing, featuring a brown mask, a baseball bat, and car wrecks. What could they mean? Are they tied to the mystery opponent in the WWE title match at Summerslam?
But, perhaps most of all, August was a month that the rivalry of the Eliminators and Alliance met its peak, particularly in week 3, after CM Punk had just defeated Stone Cold in an extreme rules match, the Alliance all came out, and obliterated Punk, leaving him a bloody mess. A barrage of security guards at ringside prevented the rest of the Eliminators from helping Punk. Punk was beaten with pipes, put through a table and a ladder, and then had the ring collapsed on top of him. Hate also brewed between Stone Cold and Shawn Michaels, who will be headlining Summerslam with their match. While their exchanges remained mostly verbal, Michaels delivered a heartfelt speech in week 4 about how he had considered Austin a friend, and at Summerslam, he's going to kill the Stone Cold that we've seen the last few months, so that he might rest in peace as the Austin we remembered. Stone Cold answered by running Shawn over with his truck backstage. This 7-month rivalry ends at Summerslam, but who will come out on top?
With the Deadman as our new WWE Undisputed Champion, things on Summerslam came under the Undertaker's rule, with Paul Bearer at his side. Since his heel turn, Undertaker's resorted to dirty, dire tactics, such as obliterating his opponents after the match, or using his supernatural powers to gain an unfair advantage, seen in week 2 when he took on Justin Gabriel, and shut off the lights with his power, before hitting a devistating low blow and Last Ride. Undertaker would continue attacking his brother Kane, but Kane put up a good fight, getting the advantage over his older brother on several occasions, and even managing to set him on fire. Mr. McMahon would stop them from brawling after their one on one match in week 3, and inform them that Undertaker will be defending his title against not only Kane at Summerslam, but Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle as well! This prompted Lesnar, Angle, Undertaker, and Kane to start attacking one another, with Kurt Angle laying out all 3 other men at the end of week 4 and standing high.
Things have also been heating up with the Industry and the Miz and Mark Henry, who announced that they were cashing in their rematch clause at Summerslam in week 1. On a special episode of Miz TV, Miz had JBL out, and after asking a series of insulting questions, assaulted the wrestling god with his microphone. Alberto Del Rio retorted by running down Mark Henry with one of his Ferrari's. Things are set for a tag team match at Summerslam, who will come out on top with the titles?
Cody Rhodes also made an impact as our new Intercontinental Champion, sneaking out and attacking John Cena after his match in week 1, before cutting a promo about how he is the "best damn superstar this industry has ever seen." Rhodes would take on a more serious persona throughout the month, and vignettes began airing, dubbed "The Rhode To Success" that highlighted Cody's achievements, both in and out of the ring. These featured acts such as defeating Justin Gabriel for the Intercontinetal Championship, and having straight A's in college. These got a lot of heat from the crowd, and the WWE Universe hasn't been silent about their disdain for Mr. Rhodes (as he demands the WWE Universe call him).
Chris Jericho would continue boasting about how he's our savior, and better than all of us, citing his recent victory over Daniel Bryan at No Mercy as the proof. Bryan, however, refused to be forced to listen to Jericho's bile, and challenged Jericho to a one on one TLC match at Summerslam, once and for all, for the title. Jericho gladly accepted, then delivered a devistating Codebreaker to Bryan, laying him out. He would get his next week, in week 3, where Bryan interfered in Jericho's match with John Cena and delivered a powerful kick to the head.
The cryptic promos on Raw also made their way to heat, causing confusion amongst the WWE Universe.
In Week 4, Jericho revived the highlight reel, citing it as "WWE's one and only talk show, Miz TV need not apply." Causing the Miz to emerge, and a singles match between the two later in the night.
Summerslam was full of twists, turns, and unexpected events. So, let's jump right into the recap!
One of the stipulations for Summerslam was that 3 matches featuring Alliance and Eliminators competitors would be scored, and whoever came out on top with 2 of the wins would take over the company, and the other team would be annihilated.
Summerslam opened with the theme songs ringing into the arena, before we heard CM Punk's music. The fans rose to their feet as Summerslam opened with a bout that was 7 months in the making!
