WWE Night Of Champions


A video plays, hyping tonight's big matches.
A*

The Shield (Rollins & Reigns) defeated Tons of Funk in 7:40 when Roman Reigns defeated Brodus Clay by pinfall with a Spear.
Sweet T and Brodus Clay can match power with anybody, but Seth Rollins was able to utilise his speed to keep them off balance enough for Roman Reigns to bring his power to bear.
A

Josh Mathews welcomes us to the press box, overlooking the sold out arena, and introduces tonight's panelists, from the Night of Champions Kickoff Show: The Miz, Wade Barrett, and Christian. Christian continues to be impressed by The Shield, and how well they operate as a unit. The Miz says that he can't wait to see CM Punk finally shut up Paul Heyman for good, while Barrett reminds us that Heyman has one of the greatest strategic minds in the history of the WWE, so he can never be counted out.
A

AJ Lee defeated Brie Bella, Naomi and Natalya in 7:49 when AJ Lee defeated Naomi by submission with a Black Widow.
Like a fly that wouldn't be swatted, AJ Lee buzzed around the Total Divas, antagonising them, and getting shots in when she could, before "strategically withdrawing" to higher ground. She was eventually cornered and caught, with all three laying her out, leaving them to fight each other for the right to be the new champion. This allowed AJ to recover, and she picked her spot well, hitting a dropkick to both Brie and Natalya, sending them out of the ring, and picking up the scraps, with Naomi.
C+

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are shown in an office, when The Big Show walks in, having been summoned. Triple H welcomes him back, after being suspended on Smackdown, and says that they've got an important job for him to do, tonight. Stephanie mentions Ricardo Rodriguez getting involved in the match between Rob Van Dam and Randy Orton, on Friday, and that they want to make sure that nothing like that happens in the WWE Championship match, so they want The Big Show to be at ringside, as a special enforcer. If anyone tries to interfere, he's to knock them out. Triple H hopes Big Show has learned how to follow orders, and wants him to remember what's best for business.
A

A video plays, covering the history of CM Punk and Paul Heyman, including the Summerslam match with Brock Lesnar, and the repeated introduction of a kendo stick into the mix.
B+

CM Punk defeated Curtis Axel in 12:57 by pinfall with a Go To Sleep.
Punk was a man possessed, but after Paul Heyman stuck his nose in there one too many times, he couldn't wait any longer, and chased Heyman around the ring. Curtis Axel cut him off at the pass with a clothesline, and took control. As it has in the past couple weeks, though, Axel's aggression got the better of him, and he increasingly ignored the referee's count. It wasn't until the ref was just about to call a disqualification that Axel and Heyman both started pleading for him not to do it. As they made their case, CM Punk gathered his wits, and caught Axel with a kick to the head, and a GTS.
A*

Paul Heyman immediately takes off up the ramp, but is stopped by Raw General Manager Brad Maddox, who tells Heyman that if he doesn't get in the ring, he'll be fired. When Heyman still hesitates, Maddox ups the ante, saying that not only will Heyman be fired, but Curtis Axel will also be stripped of the Intercontinental Championship. That gets Heyman slowly walking towards the ring, and as he gets to the bottom of the ramp, Maddox has one more message for him, saying that this match will now be no disqualification. All the while, the smile on CM Punk's face keeps getting bigger and bigger.

As the match begins, CM Punk unloads with punches, taking Heyman quickly down. Punk retrieves handcuffs from under the ring, and slaps them on Heyman. He then grabs a kendo stick, and takes the time to savour the moment, as the crowd is in a frenzy. He doesn't get the chance to follow through, though, because Ryback explodes in from behind, with a Meat Hook clothesline to the back of Punk's head. He then hoists Punk up, and drops him with a thunderous Shell Shock. Finally, Ryback pulls the handcuffed Paul Heyman on top of the lifeless Punk, where the referee counts to three.
A

A video plays, of Cody Rhodes being fired by Triple H, after losing to Randy Orton, two weeks ago on Raw, and Goldust's unsuccessful attempt to win that job back the next week. As that finishes, it is announced that "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes will be on Raw, tomorrow, for a meeting with Triple H & Stephanie McMahon.
A

Renee Young catches up with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, backstage, to ask about Dusty Rhodes appearing on Raw. Stephanie says that they asked Dusty to meet with them, because they have a business proposal they would like to discuss with him, involving his sons, Cody & Goldust. Renee then asks about the WWE Title match, how Triple H has repeatedly ordered Daniel Bryan to be attacked, over the past few weeks, and whether he's going to take an active role in tonight's main event. Triple H says that there's no favouritism at play here. Daniel Bryan had to be taught a lesson in respect for authority, but now he's in a one-on-one match for the WWE Championship, and they've put The Big Show out there to make sure that it stays one-on-one. May the best man win, because that is what's best for business.
A

Dean Ambrose defeated Dolph Ziggler in 12:54 by pinfall with a Snap DDT.
Surprisingly, Ambrose went it alone here, which almost cost him, but a few well-placed rakes of the eyes, an exposed turnbuckle, and a low blow, were enough for him to scrape out the victory.
A*

We go once again to Josh Mathews with the Kickoff panel, The Miz, Wade Barrett, and Christian. The Miz praises the effort put up by Dolph Ziggler, but says that you always have to be on your guard for underhanded tactics, with men like Dean Ambrose. Barrett is looking forward to seeing Alberto Del Rio dissect Rob Van Dam's arm. Christian doesn't know how the main event will go, even without outside interference, because he's had his battles with Randy Orton, and knows that he's not in this position as a fluke, no matter how shady the way he got the title was.
B+

A video plays, setting up the World Heavyweight Championship match between Rob Van Dam and Alberto Del Rio, including Vickie Guerrero banning Ricardo Rodriguez from ringside.
A

Rob Van Dam defeated Alberto Del Rio in 13:01 by pinfall with a Five Star Frog Splash.
Rob Van Dam wins the WWE World Heavyweight title.
Wade Barrett got to see what he was looking forward to, as Alberto Del Rio did, in fact, dissect the arm of Rob Van Dam. The lesson he learned is that when you have educated feet like RVD, you can fight with only one arm. Del Rio set up for his standing roll into the Cross Armbreaker, but RVD rolled right out the other side, delivered a kick to Del Rio's head, used his one good arm to vault up to the top rope, and came crashing down to win the title.
A*

As Alberto Del Rio rolls out of the ring, and Rob Van Dam is handed his new title, Damien Sandow emerges from the back, Money In The Bank briefcase in one hand, and a microphone in the other. He says that this is Night of Champions, and it's time for the Uncrowned World Heavyweight Champion to be crowned. He sets down the mic, and begins walking to the ring, but Ricardo Rodriguez rushes out from the back, grabs the briefcase out of Sandow's hand, and races backstage. Sandow is dumbfounded, cursing his moment being taken away, and his briefcase getting stolen for a second time, then takes off after the thief. In the ring, RVD resumes his celebration.
B

A video plays, highlighting Daniel Bryan's rise to the top, his victory over John Cena at Summerslam, but then Triple H & Randy Orton snatching the WWE Championship away from him moments later. Orton's crowning as the Face of the WWE, all the beatdowns by The Shield, and Shawn Michaels' endorsement are all covered.
A*

Randy Orton defeated Daniel Bryan in 23:12 by pinfall with an RKO.
As you'd expect from a battle of the best in the WWE at retaining control of a match, against the best counter artist in the world, this was a constant push-pull. Bryan would find a way to break free, and Orton would find a way to rope him back in. Things came to a head when Bryan got a big flurry of offence, loaded up the Boma YES, and connected

... with the referee, as Orton pulled him in the way. The Viper quickly followed up with a low blow, and rolled to the outside, grabbing his title to use as a weapon. Back in the ring, he winds up, ready to pounce as Bryan gets to his feet, but The Big Show snatches the belt from Orton's hand, from the apron, having been at ringside all match. They begin to argue, as Bryan rises, and charges in. Orton side-steps just in time, causing Bryan to crash into Big Show. As he turns back around, Orton drops him with an RKO, just as Triple H hurries a replacement referee in for the 3 count.

A*

Triple H joins Randy Orton in the ring, as they stand over Daniel Bryan. The Big Show picks up the title, on the outside, and disgustedly looks at the celebration. He steps into the ring, and Orton demands he give him the belt. Big Show hands it to him, but hangs on. Orton gives it a couple pulls, and Big Show clocks him with a massive Knockout Punch. Triple H is furious, as Big Show smiles, and walks out, leaving the Face of the WWE lying on the mat, to end the PPV.
A*


Final Rating: A*

I considered moving Main Event to Sundays, so that it could be a televised pre-show, like Heat used to be, but the game mechanics would rape that idea, because the show grade would affect my popularity just as much as Raw, SD, and PPVs do. They'll have to live on with only the panels. Besides, Josh Mathews needs a gig (actually, he's back on SD, with Cole & Booker T).

WWE Night of Champions PPV Reaction by Heelz4Reelz

The Shield defeats Tons of Funk to retain the Tag Team Belts
We start off the show with the right team winning. Tons of Funk should be nowhere NEAR the Tag Champs again for at least another 70 months. Their gimmick is so STUPID, dancing to the ring and bringing goddamn CHILDREN into the ring after they, ugh, win matches. It's like they're pandering to the dumbest demographic in the audience. The real game changer in this match was Seth Rollins. Nobody can keep up with him in the ring, and he looks to be the next big breakout star once the Shield disbands. I can see him having a very Jeff Hardy like career, with him Main Eventing on Smackdown, and Ambrose on Raw. Maybe we'll get a Title Unification a few years down the line between those two. Reigns has nothing going for him. He's got 3 moves, and can barely execute them. I cannot wait for the Shield to break up so Moxley and Black can go onto to better things, while Reigns goes home, fired.

Rating: C-

I'm going to just cover the "panel" here. All I can say is at least they've found something for Wade and Christian to do. I'd much rather see these guys go for 15-20 minutes in the ring, but I guess I'll settle for this. But the Miz? Fuck him and his lame excuse for a wrestler. Have you SEEN his Figure Four? It looks almost as bad as Cena STF. It just goes to show that former reality TV "talent" aren't good for anything in life. In short, more Barrett and Christian in matches, less Miz. Period.

Rating: B-

AJ retains her Diva's title against Brie, Naomi (or was it Cameron), and Natalya
Bathroom break. Isn't it sad how the WWF went from having the paragons of female wrestling, to this tripe? Why can't we just get Nattie and AJ in a 12 minute match, showing off their ring acumen? But no, we have to suffer with BB, not DD's and the one Dancer for the Fat Man Team.

Rating: F

Backstage Segment with HHH, Steph, and Big Show
The Old Boy's Club returns, with HHH keeping his Buddy Big Show near the Main Event. Odds are he knocks out Bryan, pretends to be upset, but then joins the Authority due to HHH being his friend.

Rating: D

Video package for CM Punk and Paul Heyman
The WWE does few things right, and their production values are one of those things. This whole video encapsulated the friendship and breakup of two Icons of the past and present, of course, those being Paul Heyman and CM Punk. This has been one of the best feuds they've had in years, building up the friendship over Punk's reign, then shattering it at Money in the Bank. This will go down as one of the most memorable feuds, the likes of Flair/Steamboat, Rock/Austin, and Hart/Michaels.

Rating: A

CM Punk vs Curtis Axel & Paul Heyman
This match was moving right along, with Punk easily dispatching the young Hennig, and was about to get his retribution on Heyman, when goddamn Goldberg-Lite came out and got involved. There is no way, in a shoot fight, that Ryback would even land a single blow on Mr. Brooks. He'd get his head kicked off faster than he could say "duhhh... steak". God, this match was going to steal the show before this fuckwit got involed and fucking ruined it.

Heyman won.

Rating: B- (this rating pains me so much, but Ry-Fat's sucktitude knows no bounds)

Backstage Segment
Renee, just get your tits out and stop talking. Otherwise, another bathroom break. I don't need to hear HHH and The Bosses Daughter circle-jerk how great they are. I can't stand people who just surround themselves with yes men, and just congratulate each other on how right they are.

Rating: F-

Dean Ambrose vs Dolph Ziggler for the United States Championship
It's about time Ziggler got put into a match of consequence. Looks like UnCreative finally decided to take their boot off his Jugular. The match ending was perfect, with Moxley being the dirty slimy heel he was born to be, and cheating his way to victory. Ziggler is protected, and Ambrose looks dangerous. Ambrose is shaping up to be this generation's Ric Flair. Watch out Nature Boy, there may be a new "Dirtiest Player in the Game" on the horizon.

Rating: A

Alberto Del Rio vs Rob Van Dam for the World Heavyweight Championship
ROB
VAN
DAM

FINALLY WERE FREE OF THE DELRIO DEBACLE! VANDAM IS CHAMPION! VAN DAM IS CHAMPION! ALL IS RITE IN TEH WORLD!

Rating: A+

Bryan Danielson vs Randy Orton for the WWE Championship
Fuck.
This.
Match.

Not even the American Dragon could save it from the overbooked Shit-show of a finish. It felt like I was watching Russo's booking all over again. Where to start...

We got Orton blatently cheating by putting the Ref in Harm's Way. Back in the early 90s, Willy McVale got DQ'd for that in a Washington Territory for doing that, so why not Orton? Oh, right, he's Vince and HHH's bitch boy. Then there was the fatass elephant in the room,with Big Slow at ringside. And surprise surprise, he's the one standing tall after the match, because HHH only wants HIS guys that he wrestled with in the Main Event. God, they couldn't have buried Danielson any harder tonight. He lost the main event, he's not the champion, which is the ONLY THING THAT MATTERS EVER, and he didn't even get the last laugh on Orton after he was cheated. Danielson is better off going back to Ring of Honor where he'll be RESPECTED AND TREATED FAIRLY, instead of being oppressed by the FUCKING MCMAHONS. CM Punk was right, this company wouldn't be better off with Vince dead, because HHH would grab the reigns, and then it'd just be HHH's cronies wrestling for the title. Fuck, the ONLY THING that can make this right is a Daniel Bryan Title Win. Otherwise, they've wrecked his credibility. Nobody's going to back a guy who can't win the championship. Because of this, the crowd's going to cool on him, he fucking buried. They RUINED him.

Match Rating: FUCK YOU HHH

Match of the Night: Ambrose/Ziggler - ******

Moment of the Night: RVD pinning Del Bore-o with one arm.

Show Rating: C+

This is Heelz4Reelz signing off. Later, marks.

It's a nice touch that he LOVED Ambrose cheating his ass off, to retain, but Orton doing the same is an over-booked shit show. Sensational.

Taped for Superstars:

Prime Time Players defeated Curt Hawkins and Hunico in 4:46 when Darren Young defeated Curt Hawkins by pinfall with a Full Nelson Flapjack.

-------------------------

WWE Raw

A video plays, recapping the main event of last night's Night of Champions PPV, with The Big Show knocking out Randy Orton, after the match.
A*

We go live with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon already in the ring. Stephanie asks everyone to give this man the welcome he deserves as the Face of the WWE, as she introduces the WWE Champion, Randy Orton. Orton says that ever since he won this title, at Summerslam, people have been saying that he didn't deserve it, and that he just had it handed to him. Now, that's never been true, but last night, he proved every doubter wrong, by pinning Daniel Bryan in the middle of the ring, with an RKO. Now, firmly established as the Face of the WWE, he is ready to move on to other, more worthy challengers.

Orton gets no further, as "Ride of the Valkyries" plays, and Daniel Bryan makes his way onto the stage. He wants to congratulate Randy on proving that he truly is the Face of the WWE. He just wonders how the face of the Face of the WWE feels, after getting knocked out at the end of last night. Orton didn't prove anything, because once again, Triple H and his wife sent somebody out to ringside, so that Orton didn't have to fight his battles alone. Maybe Big Show didn't mean to cost Bryan the match, but he did anyway, and because of that, Bryan feels he deserves a rematch. In fact, he wants a rematch, for the WWE Championship, tonight. He asks the crowd if they want to see Daniel Bryan get another WWE Championship match tonight. (Pro tip: Yes)

Triple H says that he'd love to give the people what they want, but there's just one thing: Daniel Bryan already had his automatic rematch, and he lost. He sent Big Show out there to make sure nobody interfered, and he didn't follow orders, but that's something Triple H & Stephanie will deal with personally. It doesn't change the fact that Daniel Bryan lost, last night. He can't be giving Bryan opportunities again, and again, and again, because that would be unfair to everyone else in the locker room. Daniel Bryan wouldn't want to stand in the way of everyone chasing their dreams, would he? Daniel Bryan needs to get back in line, and work for his next opportunity, just like everyone else. He's thinking about the future of the WWE, and for that, he wants to give someone new an opportunity to make history. That's why he's setting up an 8 match Beat The Clock Challenge, that will take place on Smackdown this week, and Raw next week, that will feature 16 Superstars who have never been WWE Champion. Whoever wins their match in the fastest time will face Randy Orton at WWE Battleground, in 3 weeks. Since Daniel Bryan was Champion (for about 5 minutes), he isn't eligible, but because giving the crowd what they want is best for business, he's going to give it to them. So, tonight, in this very ring, it will be Daniel Bryan one-on-one with... Antonio Cesaro.
A

A video plays, showing Dean Ambrose retaining the WWE United States Championship against Dolph Ziggler, as well as comments from The Miz on the Pre-Show Panel about Ambrose's underhanded tactics.
A

Dolph Ziggler defeated Wade Barrett in 12:53 by pinfall with a Zig-Zag.
The well-rested Barrett controlled large portions of the match, but Ziggler's explosive offensive flurries evened the playing field. The finish came when Ziggler ducked under a Bullhammer attempt, and caught Barrett with a Zig-Zag, before he could react.
A

Renee Young is joined by The Miz, who will be facing Fandango this Wednesday, on WWE Main Event. She mentions that Fandango will be taking part in the Beat The Clock Challenge to determine the next #1 contender, and asks if that bothers him. Miz snickers at that, and sarcastically asks if he should be bothered that he isn't included in a competition of people that have never done what he has, which is hold the WWE Championship. No, that doesn't bother him, and he hopes Fandango goes all the way, and takes the title for a tango, so that The Miz can beat him for it, just like he'll beat him on Wednesday.

He isn't able to continue, as Dean Ambrose enters the scene, wearing a smirk. Ambrose says that it's all well and good for The Miz to talk about the championship he USED to have, and dream about winning another, but from where he's standing, as a current champion, all he sees is someone with sour grapes. Ambrose heard what The Miz said about him, on that little panel they held while everyone of championship caliber was busy putting on a show. He's not mad; he thinks The Miz was right. Everyone does have to keep an eye on Dean Ambrose, at all times. I guess you could say that he's... must see, just one more thing that The Miz USED to be.
A

Fandango and Big E. Langston defeated Primo & Epico in 5:12 when Big E. Langston defeated Primo by pinfall with The Big Ending.
Fandango nearly got caught early, from overdoing it with showboating, but once he tagged in Big E, it was a whole different story. With Primo & Epico beaten down, Fandango tagged himself back in, laid in a few shots, and climbed up top for his big legdrop. Langston returned the favour, though, and tagged himself in, while Fandango was on the turnbuckle, and took the pin for himself.
C+

A video plays, recapping the World Heavyweight Championship match from Night of Champions, where Rob Van Dam battled through incredible damage to his left arm, to win the title. We then see Damien Sandow coming out to cash in his Money in the Bank, only to have Ricardo Rodriguez appear from the back, and steal the briefcase.

We go to the trainer's room, where the new World Heavyweight Champion, Rob Van Dam, is getting checked out by the WWE's doctor, while Ricardo Rodriguez stands by, still sporting Damien Sandow's Money in the Bank briefcase. The doc says that Van Dam probably should have just stayed home tonight, to rest, but RVD tells him that there was no way he was going to miss tonight's show, now that he's a champion. Entering the room, Triple H says that's great news, that RVD takes the responsibility of being champion so seriously, because there's a little bit of business he'd like to take care of tonight. You see, Alberto Del Rio has a rematch clause, and he wants to use it tonight. Triple H asks the doctor if RVD is able to compete, to which the doc says that he really shouldn't. Triple H says that's great, but he didn't ask whether he SHOULD compete. That's the COO's job to decide. He asked if he's ABLE to compete. The doctor says that his advice, as a physician, is that Van Dam needs at least a week's rest, before competing. Triple H thanks him for the ADVICE, but again says that he asked if he's ABLE to go to that ring, and do his job. The doctor hesitates, and RVD finally steps in to say that it's okay. Triple H wants the one-armed man to defend the World Heavyweight Championship? Fine. He used to wrestle way more banged up than this, back in ECW, and if Triple H wants him to turn back the clock, and be an Extreme World Heavyweight Champion, then that's exactly what he'll do. Triple H wishes him luck out there, and claps him on the (bad) shoulder.

A video recapping the recent history between The Authority, Randy Orton, and the Rhodes family plays.
A

Dusty Rhodes makes his way to the ring, but tells everything that he's not here to be the American Dream. Tonight, he's Virgil Runnels, a humble father. He says that he's devoted so much of his life to this industry, and the people that paid the price for that were his kids, because being out of the road made it so that daddy was never home. Now he's seen the hard work and dedication of Cody tossed aside by Triple H, because it's "best for business", whatever that's supposed to mean. Then Goldust came to Raw last week, and put up the fight of his life, just to get ridiculed by Stephanie McMahon. That brings him here tonight, but he didn't come here to have a conversation. All he cares about is getting his son a chance to earn his job back. Stephanie McMahon told him that she has a business proposal, and he's here to hear it.

Stephanie McMahon joins him in the ring, and says that was a great speech. She brings up Cody's wedding this past week, and hopes that recent happenings didn't cast a shadow of the proceedings. She then hands him a gift card for Bed Bath & Beyond, as a wedding present to the happy couple, from herself and her husband. She then cuts to the chase, saying that she is out here to offer Cody Rhodes his job back... but stops Dusty before he can respond, because that's only one of the options. There is only one roster spot available, and she wants Dusty to choose which of his children gets it. Will it be the newly-wed son that was fired, or the son that he neglected for years while he was on the road? Dusty refuses to choose, asking how she'd feel if she had to choose between her own children. When pressed to choose, he tells Steph to go to hell.

Steph simply says that she's sorry to hear that, and suddenly the music of The Shield hits, and they come down to surround Dusty. Stephanie tells everything that she wants to avoid a scene, and calls out The Big Show to help even things up. When he arrives, she gets a different idea, and offers Dusty a new choice: He can either be beaten down by The Shield, or knocked out by The Big Show. Big Show is obviously furious, and pleads with Steph not to do this, all while Dusty stands his ground, indignant. Since he won't choose, Stephanie order The Shield to attack. Big Show immediately moves to protect Dusty, screaming at them not to touch him. After a few tense moments, Stephanie tells Big Show that he has a kind heart, and clearly wants what's best for Dusty. She calmly says that if he wants to protect Dusty from The Shield, he knows what he has to do. With much hesitation, and tears streaming down his face, Big Show says that he's sorry, and delivers a knockout punch to the Hall of Famer, catching Dusty in his arms, as he falls. Medics race to the ring, as Big Show kneels over Dusty, bawling his eyes out.

After a long moment, Stephanie quietly gets Big Show's attention, and tells him that he did the right thing, just now. In a difficult position, he made the right decision... unlike last night, when he was sent to ringside to make sure that nobody interfered in the main event, but then it was Big Show himself that climbed onto the apron, and got involved. Then he knocked out the WWE Champion and the Face of the WWE, after the match. She hopes that he's learned a lesson here, in how to follow orders. To make sure it sticks, she thinks he needs a lesson in what happens to people that DON'T. Otherwise, he can't be trusted in the future to do what's best for business. That's why he's going to face The Shield in a 3-on-1 handicap match, RIGHT NOW.
A

The Shield defeated The Big Show in 9:49 by pinfall with a Triple Powerbomb.
No great mystery how this was going to play out. Big Show was emotionally cranked up, which allowed him to be dominant, but also caused him to push too hard, and make mistakes. The Shield didn't, and put the giant away.

Brad Maddox is in his office, talking to R-Truth, Kofi Kingston, and Christian. He reminds them that Triple H has put together a 16-man Beat The Clock Challenge, to determine the new #1 Contender to the WWE Championship, and is pleased to inform the three of them that, because none of them have ever been WWE Champion, they are all entered into the competition. None of the matches will be announced ahead of time, so that it's a surprise to everyone, including them, but they will each be competing on either Smackdown this Friday, or Raw next week. Kofi is excited for the opportunity, Christian knows that this is his opportunity for one... more... match, and R-Truth is ——

—— cut off by a video from the Wyatt Family. Luke Harper and Erick Rowan tower behind Bray Wyatt in his rocking chair, holding the ever-present lamp, which he lights up, casting an orange glow on the group. Bray says that from the time we were little boys and girls, we've been taught to look up to people, to see the world as black and white, with heroes and villians. We turn men into larger-than-life figures, creating myths and grand stories out of our meager existences. As we've been lied to, so do we lie to everyone else, and lie to ourselves. There are no heroes; there are no villians. There are only men and women, too busy with their delusions to see the truth; too busy with their dreams to live their lives. So it is with the WWE, where a simple man is held up as a symbol, called the Face of the WWE, while another man builds a cult around himself, enthralled with shouting yes, yes, yes. These men are illusions, images that we grab to use as a shield against our nightmares. Bray is here to rip the blinders from our eyes, and expose us to the harsh truths of reality. Everything we hold dear must be torn down if any of us are to truly live. Follow the buzzards.

The Usos defeated 3MB (Slater & McIntyre) in 6:33 when Jey Uso defeated Heath Slater by pinfall with a Samoan Splash.
Highlights included both Slater & McIntyre learning a valuable lesson on when not to headbutt a Samoan (that would be always), and Jinder Mahal's attempts at interference leading to himself and McIntyre being on the receiving end of a couple flying Usos.

We see a video recapping the CM Punk vs. Curtis Axel & Paul Heyman match, at Night of Champions. Punk defeated Curtis Axel, but Ryback interfered afterwards, allowing a handcuffed Paul Heyman to pin CM Punk.
A

Paul Heyman and his newest client, Ryback, make their way to the ring. Heyman explains that Curtis Axel is at home, taking the day off after fighting so valiantly to protect him, last night, but Heyman isn't alone because beside him is the juggernaut named Ryback. It was with the help of this man that last night, in the middle of this very ring, Paul Heyman beat CM Punk with both hands tied behind his back. You see, Paul Heyman understands people better than they understand themselves. He knew that if he pushed, Brad Maddox would push back, and make the match with Punk no disqualification, so that's what he did. He did that knowing that once it went that way — once the match entered Paul Heyman's world, by going Extreme — that he could enlist the services of someone who can appreciate the opportunities and guidance that someone like Heyman can offer, in exchange for helping him embarrass the lost child, CM Punk. That is what makes him better than the Best in the World, because he fights his battles with his mind, and in a thinking man's world, there is nobody better than Paul Heyman.
A

Ryback defeated Yoshi Tatsu in 2:40 by pinfall with a Shell Shocked.
Yoshi go splat.
B-

As Paul Heyman joins Ryback in the ring, standing over the broken body of Yoshi Tatsu, their celebration is cut short by the sound of Cult of Personality, as CM Punk steps onto the stage. He has to hand it to Heyman, for hatching a plan to avoid the savage beating Punk was about to unleash on him, last night. He went out and recruited the biggest, dumbest, easiest to manipulate meathead in the locker room, to come to his rescue. All he's done is buy himself a little time, though, because CM Punk will not stop — cannot be stopped — until he gets his hands on Paul Heyman for good, and finishes the job. If Heyman thinks that having Ryback on his side is going to stop Punk from tearing him limb from limb, he's got another thing coming. Actually, he's got exactly that coming, and there is no force on this earth that can stop the Best in the World from getting to Heyman.

Heyman chuckles a little, and says that he knows that Punk will never stop. In fact, he was counting on it. With that, Curtis Axel jumps Punk from behind, to Heyman's delight. That's short-lived, though, because Punk immediately turned it around, and sent Axel flying into the Raw set. He turned back towards the ring, and let out a "Best in the World", as Heyman split time flipping out, and holding Ryback at bay.

Renee Young welcomes her guest at this time, Alberto Del Rio, who has a rematch for the World Heavyweight Championship, 24 hours after losing it. Del Rio stops her there, saying that he didn't lose anything. That championship is still his, and last night's match is still going on. Just look at Rob Van Dam's arm. Del Rio tore it apart, and it really is just a matter of time before he finishes the job. RVD slipped out of his grasp, last night, but tonight he promises that he'll slap on the Cross Armbreaker, and not let go until that title is back where it belongs.

A video plays, recapping the Divas Championship match from Night of Champions, where AJ Lee retained the title by forcing Naomi to submit.

The Bella Twins defeated AJ Lee and Layla in 4:54 when Brie Bella defeated Layla by pinfall with a Bella Buster.
A little too much skipping cost the champ this one, but she avoids taking the fall herself, leaving Layla high and dry.

Damien Sandow is meeting with Vickie Guerrero, trying to get action on his stolen MITB briefcase. She asks him if he can't hold onto that, then how does he expect to be able to hold onto the World Heavyweight Championship. WWE rules state that in order to cash-in the Money in the Bank contract, the Superstar must physically present the contract to a WWE referee, and there will be no exceptions in this case. Sandow is about to fire back when Santino Marella enters the room, telling Vickie that she looks so... so... Mister Damien! Where is the very nice suitcase you had on Smackadown? Sandow snaps at Sandow, but is quickly silenced with an EXCUSE ME! Vickie says that Santino hit Sandow with the Cobra, on the last Smackdown, so on this week's Smackdown, the two of them will face each other one-on-one, okay?

NOW GET OUT OF MY OFFICE!!!

Zeb Colter and the Real Americans step onto the stage, before heading to the ring for Cesaro's match against Daniel Bryan. Colter says that what we saw at the beginning of the night was a sad display. Daniel Bryan came out here making excuses for his failures, and demanded a hand-out. He wants the rewards, without putting in the hard work, just like so many people in this country today, and probably most of the people here in this arena. The crowd boos, so he tells them that if they weren't like that, then they wouldn't have chanted YES while waving their arms in the air like this is some kind of "rave". Daniel Bryan is a drain on society, taking opportunities away from the people that work hard, and earn them the right way; Real Americans like Antonio Cesaro, who came to this country legally, and didn't go crying to the government, or take away someone's job by offering to work for almost nothing. He's going to go to that ring and show Daniel Bryan what being a Real American is all about, but first, everyone is to put their hand over their heart, and in a loud, clear voice say "WE THE PEOPLE."
A

Daniel Bryan defeated Antonio Cesaro in 13:10 by pinfall with a Boma YES.
The Swiss strongman wrapped up and grounded Bryan for as long as he could, but couldn't contain him forever.

A bandaged Rob Van Dam walks to the ring, to defend his World Heavyweight Championship, with Ricardo Rodriguez, still holding the stolen Money in the Bank briefcase. Along the way, he's wished luck by Kofi Kingston, Kaitlyn, and even WWE Hall of Famer Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat.
A

Rob Van Dam defeated Alberto Del Rio in 12:31 by pinfall.
To the surprise of nobody, Alberto Del Rio targeted the arm of Rob Van Dam that he'd injured the night before. Ricardo Rodriguez did everything he could to fire up the crowd, to cheer RVD on through the pain, but it was evident that he was fading. With the result seemingly assured, Del Rio took some time to rub Ricardo's nose in it, before grabbing RVD for the Cross Armbreaker. He rolled into the move, and unlike at Night of Champions, RVD wasn't able to roll through. As Del Rio locked in the move, RVD used his leg strength to push back into Del Rio, forcing his shoulders to the mat, and holding them there for the count of three.
A*

Alberto Del Rio was in shock at the result, and responded by slapping the Cross Armbreaker on Rob Van Dam. With the match over, RVD had nothing left to fight back with, and lay helplessly in the clutches of Del Rio. Ricardo Rodriguez grabbed the Money in the Bank briefcase, and charged into the ring to save his friend. Del Rio saw him coming, though, ducked a wild swing with the briefcase, and dropped Ricardo with an enzuigiri. Del Rio surveyed his handiwork, and idly picks up the Money in the Bank briefcase, just as the music of Damien Sandow begins to play. Sandow sprints to the ring, and tells Del Rio to give him his briefcase. Del Rio looks at Sandow, then at the briefcase, then to RVD, and finally down at his old friend Ricardo Rodriguez, before handing the briefcase to Sandow, and motioning for him to break what's left of RVD. Sandow immediately tells the referee that he's cashing in, and the ring is cleared, as Rob Van Dam slowly gets to his feet in the corner, his left arm hanging as dead weight.
A

Damien Sandow defeated Rob Van Dam in 4:47 by pinfall with The Silencer.
Damien Sandow wins the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
In a repeat of how he won the title the night before, RVD was able to land a kick that dropped Sandow, and used him one good arm to vault to the top rope. Sandow avoided the Five Star Frog Splash, though, and sealed the deal.

Damien Sandow celebrates his victory, as the Uncrowned Champion has been crowned.

I really appreciate how you're keeping the Rhodes storyline intact. That was good times.
