We are in Anaheim, California. Jerry “The King” Lawler confirms that John Cena has invoked his rematch clause, and will face Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Title at Night of Champions.
Michael Cole welcomes us to the very first WWE Hall of Fame Forum.
He introduces us to Hulk Hogan, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair, and Shawn Michaels.
Cole brings up Lesnar defeating Cena at Summerslam, and now Cena Vs Lesnar at Night of Champions.
Shawn doesn’t think Cena has a shot, and Flair agrees. At some point, we all have to reach those crossroads, and see that his time has passed.
Hogan believes in Cena, and he can still go.
Flair agrees with Shawn, but Flair thinks the world of Cena. He is “The Franchise” and a 15-time World Champion. Does he want Cena against Brock? No, he doesn’t feel it.
Cole wants Hogan’s thoughts.
Hogan believes in Cena, and now the legends are bickering about this. Cena just doesn’t have a chance. Hogan brings up their first match at Extreme Rules 2012, Cena took a beating, but found a way to win.
This is the rubber match, and someway, somehow, Cena will find a way to win.
Flair and Shawn do not truly believe that.
Now here comes Cena.
Cena isn’t selling any injury here.
Everyone is weighing in after what happened to Cena at Summerslam. Everyone from The Authority to Paul Heyman to a very vocal WWE Universe, and now the legends.
Cena wants to say he has the utmost respect for all three of them. They have all influenced him in some way. Shawn as a personal friend, and professional, to Flair, from a professional, to some recreational times. Without Hogan, there would be no John Cena.
Cena had 16 German Suplexes, he can’t beat around the bush, he got his ass whooped. Shawn said it changes a man, and his answer hasn’t changed, he wants to face Brock again. But he got his ass kicked, why would he want to do it again? Because it won’t happen again.
He wants to make this crystal clear, he is not going to Night of Champions to beat Brock Lesnar, he is going to Night of Champions to beat Brock Lesnar’s ass.
Tonight, Cena faces Bray Wyatt in a Wrestlemania 30 rematch.
Also tonight, World Tag Team Title match, it will be Goldust and Stardust face The Uso’s. And next, Rusev Vs Jack Swagger.
Next week, WCW Monday Nitro will debut on WWE Network, it’s about damn time.
Rusev Vs Swagger, now.
Rusev wins when the ref stops the match, because Swagger could not continue, despite never tapping out. Doctors check on Swagger, it seems he might have hurt his ribs.
King is going to call out The Bellas to revolve their differences, and next, we will have RVD Vs Cesaro to determine the Number One Contender to the United States Title.
We come back to see Swagger in the trainer’s room being tended to. Bo Dallas intervenes, telling Swagger he let his country again. When will he realize if he wants to succeed, all he has to do is BOlieve.
Sheamus is at the commentary booth, to look over RVD vs Cesaro, now.
Cesaro wins the match with a Neutralizer. He looks at the United States Title, and threw it right back at Sheamus.
Attitude Week is set up for WWE Network, and we will also get the first 100 hours of Monday Nitro. Plus tomorrow night, a new episode of “Monday Night Wars”, all of this for $9.99 a month.
Tonight, John Cena Vs Bray Wyatt.
The Divas Champion Paige is skipping to the ring, she is up next.
Paige Vs Natalya, now.
Paige wins with the Paige Turner.
Here comes AJ Lee.
AJ is skipping around the ring, Natalya catches Paige with a haymaker, and walks away.
AJ is here to tell Paige that he loves Paige and gives her an awkward hug. AJ kisses Paige’s hand, and skips around.
Tonight, John Cena Vs Bray Wyatt.
Next, it’s The Eulogy of Dean Ambrose from Seth Rollins.
Kane comes to the ring, for the Eulogy of Dean Ambrose.
We are here to honor the unstable, lunatic Dean Ambrose. But this isn’t to honor the dead, this is to honor the future of WWE….Mr. Money in the Bank….Seth Rollins.
Seth seems bothered by this, he was the leader of the most dominant group of WWE, in The Shield. There was a reason why he hand-picked Dean to be a part of the group. Dean Ambrose was a courageous fighter, but last week he had to prove at his expense that The Authority always wins.
We see footage from last week.
Seth is laughing about this, and Kane is proud.
Can you imagine the moment of impact when Seth crushed Dean’s hand in the cinder blocks? Do we think it dawned him he was overmatched mentally, and physically. It was no accident the cinder blocks were out there. And the headaches Dean will have for the rest of his life wasn’t an accident too. And two words, will cement in Dean’s life….what if? What if Dean had just simply walk away when he had that opportunity. The real tragedy is we will never truly know, because it is highly unlikely we will ever see Dean Ambrose again.
Rollins is the one that created The Shield, and now he is the one who destroyed it.
Enter Roman Reigns.
Reigns takes care of Kane, and is now left with Rollins.
He sets up Rollins with a spear, but “Corporate” Kane saves Seth.
Earlier tonight, we kicked the show off with a Hall of Fame forum, and John Cena shows up.
Tonight, Cena Vs Wyatt.
Backstage, Goldust and Stardust have an opportunity to achieve their destiny. Tonight, their stars become aligned. Tonight, they will be Tag Team Champions.
That match is next.
Goldust and Stardust win the match by countout. Goldust doesn’t want to accept the win like this. Goldust accuses The Uso’s to get counted out on purpose. They want their rematch now. Then they attack The Uso’s.
A Fanmily Reconciliation tonight with The Bellas.
The Beast Speaks, next.
Rollins and Kane are backstage, I guess The Authority have another “vacation” because Kane is in charge.
Handicap match is set up with Reigns Vs Kane and Rollins.
Hours after Summerslam, WWE caught up with the WWE World Champion, Brock Lesnar.
Winning the title was the greatest accomplishment he ever had, conquering the WWE. He hit a F-5 right away to give Cena a chance to lay down, but this “don’t give up” BS caught up to Cena, and it didn’t do him any favors.
Heyman brings up the only reason Cena survived is because Brock took pity on Cena and ended the fight.
Brock is humiliated by Cena even inflicting his rematch clause. How dare Cena doing that. This was a bad mistake, and Lesnar brings up John’s father, sitting him down as a little boy and saying so much garbage.
Cena isn’t even going to get up, Lesnar doesn’t even feel bad for him. Because for the last 12 years, Cena has been living on this. Mark Brock’s words, Night of Champions, this will be Cena’s last night in this universe. Game over, almost brings a tear to his eye.
The IC Champion, Dolph Ziggler is in action, next.
Ziggler Vs The Miz.
But wait, The Miz needs a stunt double, so he will bring in Damien Sandow.
Ziggler hits a Zig Zag for the win.
A Family Reconciliation is next.
Jerry “The King” Lawler is in the ring, telling us the most shocking moment of Summerslam was when Nikki Bella turned on her sister Brie. But then, the slap heard around the world last Monday night.
King calls both Bellas to the ring, and here they come.
Nikki is upset that Brie can’t even get her own entrance music. But Brie said this was about her best friend ending her trust. Brie knows that Nikki’s heart is hurt, she quit to protect her husband, and had no idea that witch, Stephanie McMahon would take advantage of her. Forget the WWE, forget Total Divas. This is Briana talking to Nicole.
Nikki isn’t buying this. Nikki is the selfish, egotistical one, and Brie is the family woman. But she knows the real Brie. She has always been trying to take the spotlight. She pleads Brie to stop acting like an angel. Brie has been holding Nikki back. She is so done with all of us, and is done with the family. She is so over Brie’s scraggly hair, her “Save the Earth” crap, and she is done with her cabin, and she is over her goat-face troll Daniel Bryan. Brie Bella stole her boyfriends growing up. Brie tells Nikki that she is lying. One thing Nikki isn’t lying is Brie quit on Nikki when she left. Nikki was put in 3-on-1 matches, and getting smashed, while brie was watching it at home, to see if she was trending on Twitter.
Brie starts to cry over this, and Nikki says this is Brie, a crier. King tries to intervene, she tells him to leave “old man” and stay out of this. As far as Nikki is concerned, she has no sister and wishes Brie had died in the womb.
Now Nikki shoves Brie off the chair, with King trying to stop Nikki. Nikki then slaps King across the face, and screams she has no sister and Brie is dead to her.
Switching gears now, and we see footage of The Hall of Fame forum again, with John Cena coming in.
Next, 2-on-1 Handicap match with “Corporate” Kane and Seth Rollins Vs Roman Reigns.
Rollins causes a DQ, nailing Reigns with his MITB briefcase.
Reigns takes care of both men, and send Rollins to the back, and lays out “Corporate” Kane.
Bray Wyatt interrupts the WWE Network plug.
Wyatt believes that Cena is a former shell of himself, and now that shell is cracked. What kind of man would Bray be if he would let him continue? He is a man of mercy. Bray will put him down, but don’t worry, it is so much nicer in the other side.
This Friday night on Smackdown, Big Show and Mark Henry Vs Rown and Harper.
Los Matadores Vs SlaterGator.
Los Matadores pick up the upset victory. I mean, SlaterGator are over, Los Matadores are not.
Again, the same damn footage from earlier tonight with the Hall of Fame Forum.
Cena Vs Bray Wyatt is tonight.
Kofi Kingston Vs Bo Dallas now. We all BOlieve.
BO believes, he hit a BO-Dog, and wins.
Kofi isn’t like Jack Swagger. He only allowed himself down, but Swagger let down his entire country. And they must both BOlieve.
Swagger came out and attacked Bo.
Next week, Chris Jericho will return with The Highlight Reel, with Jericho’s guest Randy Orton.
Main event time, John Cena Vs Bray Wyatt.
Cena completely squashes Bray, but Rowan and Harper come in to cause the DQ, and here comes Show and Henry.
Just like a “Teddy Long” moment, we have a 6-man tag match as our real main event.
Cena, Henry, and Show win when Cena makes Harper tap to the STU.
Attitude Adjustment now on Bray. Wow, Bray has lot alot of steam lately, and this surely does not help.
3 AA’s to the Wyatt Family. John Cena is ready for his 1,800th rematch for the title.
This was a boring, and completely wasted 3 hours of Raw. Might be the worst episode of the year.
It’s bad when the highlight of the show is finding out that WCW Monday Nitro is coming to WWE Network next week.
