After the match Drew Mcyintyre re-enters the ring attacking Ryback from behind and stomping on the big man, he goes to the outside and brings in a chair and wedges it between the turnbuckles before throwing Ryback face first into the chair.

No kick out at 2, Gabriel puts pressure on Ambrose’s arm, he continues to work on the arm of Ambrose sending him shoulder first into the steel ring post, he kicks the arm a few times before putting Ambrose in a Del Rio esque armbar but Ambrose wriggles out of the hold, Justin Gabriel then goes for spinning roundhouse kick Ambrose ducks and Ambrose grabs hold of Gabriel using all of his strength to push Gabriel to the canvas switching to the back of Gabriel & applying a camel clutch.
Gabriel thinks about tapping, and tries to get out of the hold but gives up and taps out. Ambrose impressive in his first Title defense.
Winner: Still United States Champion – Dean Ambrose
*Then all of a sudden general manager Vickie Guerrero makes her way out*
Guerrero: Excuse me…I SAID EXCUSE ME! Sorry Dean you seem to like talking…well now it’s my turn and I’m announcing that we have a tournament for the no#1 contender for your United states championship.
*Ambrose looks stunned & angry by the announcement he turns around to a trouble in paradise by Kofi Kingston from commentary, Kofi starts parading around the ring, then out of nowhere a man appears in the ring he clotheslines Kofi from behind the man is wearing a hood, he pulls back the hood to reveal himself as Corey Graves from Nxt, he walks over to Ambrose and picks up the United States championship and raises It above his head as we go to a commercial break*.
Cole: Hello, welcome back to Monday night raw! What scenes we saw before the break as Raw general manager Vickie Guerrero announced the U.S title tournament, Dean Ambrose was then leveled by a trouble in paradise by Kofi.
Jbl: Yes cole but little did Kofi know the consequences that awaited him as Nxt’s Corey Graves attacked him.
Lawler: Corey Graves is held in high regard by the WWE officials and some statement he made right there!
Cole: Indeed a very good statement by Graves up next John Cena’s big announcement stay tuned.
*My time is now, hit on the speakers and out came a crippled John Cena, he slowly makes his way down to ringside*
Cena: As you can see, I’m in no state to be here tonight. But I have some business to attend to, Last night after my match with Ryback, I got checked out by my doc. I have broken my ankle in at least 3 places and that was determined without a detailed look at my x-ray. Too cut straight to the point I’m banged up pretty bad!
*He pauses for about a minute*
Cena: I have to go away for a while, I have to go away and heal I will be back don’t you worry! But the big announcement is this… This decision was not taken lightly but…well … I simply have no choice, I have to relinquish the WWE championship, I’ll be back soon.
*He slowly exits the arena to a loud roar and a see of cheers, he leaves the wwe title in the ring.
:NOTE: This was my first, properly written show! I achknowledge that my matches & promos where relatively short, but as I get into it I'm sure it will come!
