Segment Number 1: Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt
We begin the night with Randy Orton headed to the ring. Bray Wyatt, I know how you like to talk about fear. You think talking about mind games, he loses his focus. He knows why he does these things, because Bray himself is afraid. Nothing to be ashamed of, people are afraid about things. Heights, snakes. He knows Bray is afraid of one thing, and that is Orton. If you’re man enough, get your ass out here, and face your fears. Here comes Wyatt. Bray has a story about Hansel and Gretel. He heard Randy tell it to his kids. Two children lost in the woods, leaving a trail of bed crumbs, so they can find their way back home. Bray left his own trail of bread crumbs, because this is his world. Bray is a GOD. Does he want to hurt Bray? Go ahead and do it, because of the sands of time doesn’t wait for anyone. He’s got the whole world in his hand. He’s got the whole wide world in his hands. He’s got the whole world in his hands. Randy goes after Bray.

Segment Number 9: The Miz, Maryse, and Dolph Ziggler
Here comes the hometown boy, The Miz, and Maryse.
Video: The Miz and his WWE career.
Cleveland, Miz is home. And the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Finals. 1.3 million people lined the streets to celebrate Cleveland’s championship. And this is all he gets? Miz is the only hero in Cleveland. Long before Cleveland was so desperate to win a championship, they welcomed back a traitor, Miz was winning the main event at Wrestlemania. Miz is proud to celebrate day 173 of the Intercontinental Championship with the only 2 people he cares, his two parent. Miz’s wife just informed him Dolph Ziggler’s parents are here too. It must be hard for them, because they raised a world-class elite loser.
Enter Ziggler. You can say anything about Ziggler, but you never talk like that to his parents, you never say that to his city. If you have something to say, say it to his face. Miz already said it when he defeated Ziggler. It was a tainted victory, and Miz says it’s all in the record book. Miz is a winner, and Ziggler is a loser. He was almost at the top, but he keeps losing. He’s like the opening act. His career makes Miz sick. His parents should be embarrassed, his friends should be embarrassed, but all he does is lose. What can he do next? Nothing else matters, Ziggler has nothing. So unless Dolph ends his career, he has nothing left for him. Miz is going to Hollywood, see ya around kid. Miz starts to leave, but Ziggler tells Mike to wait. He is right, this ring is everything Ziggler has. This is what he loves, but sometimes things you love doesn’t always love you back. You get nothing in return. You have fans, friends, asking him why he still subjects this to his life? It’s because he can’t stop. Maybe his career didn’t turn out better, he thought he’d be a bigger star, but he just can’t stop himself. But Miz, he puts that title up one more time. You put that title up one more time. Put that title up one more time, and Ziggler will put up his entire career. Miz wants to make sure he means this, not that he takes a break. He is done because of Ziggler. Your title, or my career. I either wind up champion, or he is done. Either way, he is out of his mercy. Miz’s title, or Ziggler’s career. And if he can’t hang up his career, Miz will do it himself.
Tonight: Dean Ambrose Vs AJ Styles (WWE World Championship Match)
Segment Number 10: Bray Wyatt
When one door closes, another one opens Randy. The door is open Randy, and he looks at him like a mouse in a maze. Not sure which way to go. And he laughs.
Match Number 3: Becky Lynch Vs ??
The match never takes place, because Alyssa Bliss attacks her, and says she doesn’t deserve the Women’s Championship, because Alyssa does.
Winner: No Contest
Tonight: AJ Styles Vs Dean Ambrose (WWE World Championship Match)
Video: Curt Hawkins
Curt is making a big announcement next week.
Segment Number 12: Bray Wyatt
Bray is disappointed of Randy, he thought he was worthy of his appearance. Someone worthy of having intelligence, but he was wrong. The Viper has no venom. Randy is taking all of the fun out of his little game. Where are you Randy? Where is the great predator he was hoping to see. Someone wearing a sheep mask appears behind Bray. It’s Orton. The two men fight, with Randy laughing, and Bray running away. I’ve got the whole world in my hands. I’ve got the whole world in my hands.
Segment Number 13: backstage Interview with AJ Styles
Charly is back, recapping what Ambrose and Cena said. This is AJ Styles defending the WWE World Championship. Recap of what happened, AJ beat up John Cena, then he beat John Cena. Then AJ beat up Dean Ambrose, then he beat Dean Ambrose for the WWE World Title. What we will hear at the end of the night is the ring announcer say the winner of the match, and still WWE World Heavyweight Champion, “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles.
Match Number 4: (WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match) AJ Styles Vs Dean Ambrose.
John Cena joins the crew. What a great match here, Cena cost Ambrose the title when AJ started the shove on Cena. John popped his head to the inside, distracted the ref for a moment, AJ rolls up Ambrose, with some help holding his pants, and win the match. Ambrose gets right into Cena’s face, and Cena hits an Attitude Adjustment, on both AJ and Ambrose to close the show.
Winner: And Still (WWE World Champion) AJ Styles.
The second hour of the show picked up some steam. We had a terrific promo from The Miz and Ziggler, setting up their big match at No Mercy. I am fine with Ziggler winning too, as long as Miz is elevated too, because he is such a big star now. World Title match too was fantastic, and a great way to make it clear John Cena is in this match too. I even enjoyed Orton and Bray tonight. Disappointed not much from Becky though.
