RAW is WAR Episode 28
New Orleans Arena, New Orleans, Louisiana
JR: Ladies and Gentlemen welcome to Monday Night RAW is WAR! What a night we had last night at The Great American Bash! It was a historic night, not just for RAW or Nitro, no but for the whole WWE, last night will be one of the nights that the WWE Universe will remember for the rest of their lives.
King: And they were treated to quite the match that will go down as one of the best, Austin Aries and Chris Jericho went one on one in one of the greatest matches we have ever seen here in the WWE, and as sad as I may be I must give credit where credit is due, Austin Aries beat Chris Jericho to become our New WWE Champion!
JR: Chris Jericho threw everything he had at Austin Aries it just wasn’t enough. Aries just had his night, it was his destiny, but let’s not discredit Chris Jericho, for four months he was our WWE Champion, from Wrestlemania till last night, a remarkable reign, over 150 days, but Austin Aries followed in the footsteps of previous King of the Ring winners, and King Aries is now WWE Champion Aries.
King: It was a great match, but let’s move on to another remarkable reign last night where the WWE Tag Team Champions, All American Perfection, against the odds, retained. They were in a Triple Threat Tag Team match, never have they had the odds against them like that, but they overcame it and won!
JR: It was quite a victory for All American Perfection and Hulk Hogan, who in his return to the ring, was able to do the same when he beat Damien Sandow! And in another moment of momentous victories, we concluded the WWE’s first ever Road to Triumph Tournament, and last night the Scramble match culminated with three Diva’s, Trish Stratus, Lita, and Kelly Kelly all moving on into one final match, the winner to be named Women’s Champion, at SummerSlam!
King: Congratulation’s to those three Diva’s, and while I want a RAW diva to win, I am quite scared that Lita could pull this out, she has been tremendous for Nitro! And to say the least I was shocked Hulk Hogan was able to win, he can’t nearly be as great as he once was, but last night he proved me wrong. Let me tell you with all these old timers running around faring well I may just lace them back up myself.
JR: Well let’s not get ahead of ourselves King. One of those other ‘old timers’ per say was Goldberg, who last night, in a shocking turn of events let Ryback win the match, but Ryback was not the true victor on the night
King: Not at all, Goldberg put Ryback through a table. After Ryback was able to kickout of everything Goldberg threw at him, Goldberg lost it, he wanted to make sure there was no way Ryback got up, and in doing so lost the match. Maybe Goldberg had a plan for why he did it, but he sure did send a message to Ryback and the rest of the WWE last night, that he is not a man you want to mess with.
JR: That’s for sure, and we have received word that Ryback sustained injuries last night, although we don’t know the specifics quite yet, we do know some of these injuries could keep him out of action for a while, which is a disappointment. But that wasn’t the only disappointment last night. In what turned out to be a moment that will live in infamy, in the middle of a classic match between Cody Rhodes and Sheamus of the United Kingdom… well just look at the video.
*A video of the event’s last night plays as the crowd boo’s when Wade Barrett appeared and helped Sheamus win.*
King: Wade Barrett has returned to the WWE, and has joined the United Kingdom! Oh this is great!
JR: I don’t see how this can be a great thing King, the United Kingdom just got more powerful, they might be unstoppable, and not only that Cody Rhodes was unfairly cheated out of his United States Championship. He thought he had the United Kingdom banned from ringside, thought he had a one on one match but it turned out the United Kingdom had a plan all along to help Sheamus win the title and now that title might never change hands.
King: Well it wasn’t all great news for the United Kingdom last night, they did lose a match, William Regal and Drew McIntyre lost to Tyler Black and the redebuting Kurt Angle!
JR: And while not to overshadow the victory for Black and Angle and his debut, I think the United Kingdom will gladly take that loss if that means they get Wade Barrett and the United States Championship in their stable. But the question needs to be asked, is Wade Barrett the Mystery Masked Man we have been seeing for weeks attacking CM Punk? And if so why did he choose CM Punk and not Cody Rhodes or Tyler Black or somebody trying to attack the United Kingdom?
King: Well that’s why the question is being asked JR, is Barrett in fact the masked man? I mean he could have attacked CM Punk to draw attention away from himself and the United Kingdom, and then attack when people least expected it. Who knows we may have another Mystery Man altogether.
JR: And we don’t know when and if we will get answers but we are expected to hear from the United Kingdom tonight so we will see. But as you can see the ring is set up in celebration of Austin Aries becoming WWE Champion!
Austin Aries walks out from the back with the WWE Championship draped on his shoulder. He stops at the top of the ramp, and looks around, smiling, as the fans are just eating him up.
JR: It’s our new WWE Champion and this ovation is deafening!
King: These fans are saps, just a few weeks ago they were booing him, but because he beat the Best in the World, Chris Jericho, now these fans love him.
Aries heads down the ramp and over to the steel steps where he climbs them and into the ring. Aries goes to a corner, climbing to the middle rope, as he takes the WWE Championship and raises it high above him with both hands. The fans are going crazy taking pictures, as Austin steps down. Aries goes over to corner where he is handed a mic, as he turns around. His music fades.
Aries: Finally.......you know what, before I do that...I have one thing I need to address.
Aries turns, walking to the ropes, as he looks at King and JR.
Aries: Hey, you two, yeah. I'm talking to you two. From here on out, it's WWE Champ Aries, or just Aries. I may have won king of the ring, but I'm not king. Got it?
JR nods, as Jerry just avoids eye contact. Aries grins, as the fans are chanting "Champ Aries" over and over.
Aries: Now...finally....it happened. Someone dethroned the great Chris Jericho. Not just someone...the only one. The only one who could do it. Did anyone notice how people like Warrior, Luger, and Punk couldn't top him? I'll let you in on a secret. It's because they aren't Austin Aries!
The fans explode, as Aries just keeps rolling.
Aries: It all started, at King of the Ring, and it ended, at the Great American Bash. I said an American would walk out of that PPV a champ, and I a man of my word. I am now in the class of people like Edge, Brock Lesnar, Booker T, and Kurt Angle. I've proven my worth in the WWE, and this...this right here...is my certificate of perfection. Look at who has won this title. John Cena, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Hulk Hogan, the Undertaker...all of them, greats...all of them...memorable in their own right. And now, after his lengthy reign, even Chris Jericho is among them.
Aries: But enough about Jericho. This moment right here is about me. This is my chance now, my chance to pick up that ball, load it onto my back, and run with it. I can stand here and tell you all that I will hold this title until Wrestlemania, but I know none of you are fools. I don't know what Teddy Long is going to throw my way, and I'm not going to assume. Here is a promise, a promise each and every one of you can take to the bank. Each and every time I defend this title, you all will see the type of match you saw at the Great American Bash. A balls out, pedal to the floor, wind in your hair, 100 miles an hour match that takes your breath away.
The fans are now chanting Aries is Awesome, as Aries just grins.
Aries: Now is the time for celebration. So...without any more delay...I bring you Nickleback live!
Aries turns, pointing to the entrance
JR: What is he doing out here? He is just sour that Austin Aries beat him for the WWE Title, after nobody could do it for four months doesn’t mean he is invincible!
*Chris Jericho instantly comes out in a trademark jacket, mic in hand, and he instantly goes to speak*
Jericho: Nickleback? You've just won the WWE Championship, the biggest thing you're ever going to win in your career, for the one and only time you're ever going to win it, and your idea of a celebration is to have Nickleback play here live? How unambitious. How.... mediocre. The mere fact that you want Nickleback to play at your celebration goes to show the ambition you have as champion Aries.
*the crowd boo as Jericho has climbed the steel steps and steps between the ropes*
Jericho: First of all, I may not like you Aries, I may not even think that you are on my level, but I can acknowledge when I've had a 5 star match. And at the Great American Bash, you and I put on a 5 star match.
*the crowd surprisingly cheer this as Aries nods in agreement*
Jericho: However, this little celebration, is now over, Aries. This celebration is over before it's begun because you winning that Championship was nothing more than a fluke. And the fact that you're celebrating that fact is a joke.
*the crowd boo*
Jericho: I know it, and you know it. But the simple fact that you fail to acknowledge it has led to these fans being blinded further. You are pulling the wool over the eyes of these fans Aries, and it's not acceptable. Do you understand what I am saying to you right now?
*the crowd boo*
Jericho: Unlike you, I don't need a Championship around my waist to dictate that I am the best in the world at what I do. But unfortunately, because of these blind, mindless hypocrites, the simple fact that they won't acknowledge that I am the best if I don't have that Championship means that I have to do something about that. So without wasting any more of my breath on you, I am announcing that I will cash in my rematch clause at Summerslam!
King: No way! Austin Aries vs. Chris Jericho the rematch!
JR: What huge news! We will get the rematch of the epic match from last night at The Great American Bash! Austin Aries vs. Chris Jericho II where Chris Jericho looks to reclaim his WWE Championship takes place at SummerSlam!
King: Oh that is a must see match, if they can top what they did last night I’d be scared!
JR: And as you can see Chris Jericho is dressed to compete he will be in a match next!
JR: We are back and if you are just joining us folks you have already missed a ton. Chris Jericho has used his rematch clause and the rematch between him and Austin Aries will take place at SummerSlam. Now though, Chris Jericho is scheduled to compete in a match.
King: And boy do I feel bad for Ted DiBiase… well not really but…anyways after last night and as we just saw Chris Jericho seems to be in a very bad mood tonight about losing his WWE Championship last night and I would hate to be Ted DiBiase.
JR: DiBiase has had a rough go at it as of late and there is no way this is going to help try and stop it. Chris Jericho is all business tonight.
Chris Jericho vs. Ted DiBiase
Watch 2:35 till 7:49
JR: Oh DiBiase almost had him there, what fight he is showing! He wants to turns his fortunes around here tonight
King: Chris Jericho needs to get his head in the game, I think he is still thinking about his loss last night, he doesn’t know if he is the same person anymore. If Jericho wants any shot of beating Aries at SummerSlam he needs to let it go
JR: He needs to let it go now, he is in danger of losing to Ted DiBiase, a man who has been on a massive losing streak.
DiBiase can’t believe that Jericho was able to kick out. He asks the ref again and he gets an answer that it was indeed a two count. DiBiase then turns his attention back to Jericho. He awaits Jericho to get up, and whens Jericho groggily gets up and faces DiBiase, and DiBiase grabs him…
JR: DiBiase looking for Dream Street
DiBiase goes to lift Jericho up, but Jericho counters with elbows to the side of DiBiase’s head. DiBiase backs up a few steps and runs at Jericho, who catches DiBiase with a flying forearm smash. Jericho gets up and kicks DiBiase in the gut and he rolls to the apron. DiBiase stands up on the apron and Jericho goes over to grab him but DiBiase slaps Jericho that backs him up a few steps, and DiBiase goes to get in the ring but Jericho hits the springboard dropkick, and DiBiase falls back to the outside and to the floor below. Jericho immediately goes out after DiBiase lifts him up, and goes to smash his head on the ring apron, but DiBiase reverses and slams Jericho’s head on the ring apron. DiBiase rolls Jericho in the ring, and Jericho rolls to the other side. DiBiase slowly walks over to get to Jericho, who gets up quickly and hits DiBiase with a running enzuigiri. DiBiase falls to the mat, and Jericho comes off the ropes with the Lionsault!
JR: Lionsault from Jericho and he is covering…
JR: DiBiase kicked out and Jericho is not happy
King: he isn’t letting it affect him though he is staying on the offensive
Jericho gets up and stalks DiBiase, DiBiase is slow to get to his feet, but he does so and he groggily turns to Jericho…
King: Codebreaker! Haha Jericho is going to win.
JR: The frustrations are going to continue for Ted DiBiase… and they may continue for a long while after this, Jericho is furious he isn’t ending it right here he is… he is…
King: Locking in the Walls of Jericho! Haha, Austin Aries you may have pissed of Chris Jericho more than you could ever know, the Best in the World is coming for his WWE Championship
Jericho after the Codebreaker locks DiBiase in the Walls of Jericho and DiBiase is screaming in pain he attempts to move but Jericho has the hold so tightly applied DiBiase knows he has nowhere to go and taps.
JR: And Chris Jericho wins the match and Austin Aries now has to be at least a little bit worried, Chris Jericho is not the same Chris Jericho we are accustomed to seeing, he wants the WWE Championship back, and he is a man on a mission.
King: If this is the Chris Jericho that shows up to SummerSlam Austin Aries is in deep trouble, he may have one of the shortest reigns in WWE Championship history.
JR: Up next the two losing teams from last night’s Triple Threat WWE Tag Team Championship match will square off, the Prime Time Players will take on the Kings of Wrestling
JR: Here come the Prime Time Players who were so close to winning last night, one of the many close calls that we had in that match, in the end though All American Perfection was the team that was able to pull it out
King: We should start referring to them as the Prim Time Losers because that’s all they do… Lose! *King laughs to himself*
JR: They are still supremely talented individuals and have a bright future as a tag team, last night was not there night, I wouldn’t write them off just yet
JR: Just like I wouldn’t write off these individuals, who have been nothing but impressive since arriving here in the WWE, the Kings of Wrestling!
King: Look I am a King, and I know what Kings look like, and these two certainly aren’t Kings, nevertheless Kings of Wrestling. The Kings of Tag Team Wrestling are All American Perfection they are the WWE Tag Team Champions, and they have retained despite the greatest odds.
JR: Well this win could do a lot for one of these teams, could put them right back in the WWE Tag Team Championship hunt. Let’s see who picks up a win and puts themselves near the top of the contender list.
Prime Time Players vs. Kings of Wrestling
(PTP/PTP vs. KOW/Usos)
Watch 2:00 till 4:00
JR: O’Neil has Castagnoli in a tight headlock.
Titus is squeezing the head of Castagnoli with the headlock. Castagnoli now tries to get up. First on his knees and now is on his feet. Titus still has the headlock on Castagnoli but he tries to break the hold with a few elbows to the ribs and he does. Castagnoli whips Titus to the ropes but the returning Titus catches him with a big clothesline almost turning him inside out. He does his famous Dog Barking to taunt the fans and they respond with loud boos . Claudio's head hits hard on the canvas and now Titus pulls him from the leg and makes the tag to Young. Young gets in and Titus picks Young up for the suplex only to throw him on Castagnoli. Young hooks the leg for the pin
JR: Boy that was close! What teamwork here from the Prime Time Players they look focused to get back in the tag team title chase
King: Doesn’t matter who wins they will still lose to All American Perfection. I know I would love to see the Prime Time Players lose for a third time.
Castagnoli kicks out before three and Young gets on his feet, readies himself, waiting him to get up. Claudio slowly gets up and Young connects with a big dropkick. Hero is on the other corner and screams to Castagnoli to get up. Young makes the tag and Titus is back in they both pick him up whips him to the ropes and nail him with a double shoulderblock. AW is on the outside screaming for him mates but the fans ignore him. Claudio is down again and Young gets out. Titus picks him up shoves him to the ropes and raises the returning Castagnoli in the air for the Clash of the Titus but Claudio counters grabs him from the head and hits him hard with the DDT.
JR: Big DDT from Claudio! He just spiked Titus O'Neil right on his head.
King: Big deal Titus O'Neil is out Ross! both men need the tag.
Both men are down and now Claudio tries to crawl his way for the tag. Titus starts to move now and he makes the tag. Claudio is close and finally makes the tag. Hero gets in and he is on fire. Big clothesline on Young who gets immediately up. And then hits him with another clothesline. Young gets up again and Hero with a dropkick sends him the corner. He charges and connects with a big boot on the jaw. He picks him up and places him on the top rope he climbs up and then nails him with a superplex. He covers...
JR: By God how did he kick out from that superplex what a match, neither of these teams wants to lose they know what the consequences are if they do
King: And if they win they get to face All American Perfection and get embarrassed they might as well lose
JR: Pride is also on the line King.
Titus from the outside grabbed the leg of Hero pulling him out breaking the pin. Now both men get in a fists fight to the outside while Young is still down in the ring. And here comes Castagnoli for the help. He connects with a big punch on the back of Titus and then both men send Titus on the steel post, head first. Hero gets back in and Young slowly gets up. And as he turns Hero connects with the KO. AW is pissed and screams to Titus to get up and help Young. He doesn't go for the cover and tags Claudio who returned to his corner. Claudio gets in picks Young up and nails him with the Neutralizer. He covers Young...
JR: The Kings of Wrestling win! Freakish strength from Claudio and he picks up the win for his team.
King: It's going to matter not one bit JR, All American Perfection are never going to lose those tag titles.
JR: Well we will see about that partner, No doubt the Kings have put them self-right back into contention with a big win here. Up next however we will hear from Goldberg, addressing his actions towards Ryback from last night
*crowd chants GOLDBERG… GOLDBERG… GOLDBERG*
JR: Ladies and gentleman, business has just picked up!! Goldberg is in the house and is ready for action!! After having a hellacious fight with Ryback at The Great American Bash, how could he still be standing.
King: Because he cheated JR.
JR: King, how could you say that? It seems to me like you’re not a Goldberg fan.
King: I don’t get paid to be a fan, I get paid to call the matches right down the middle, no favorites.
JR: I’ll remember to feed you that garbage when you take an athlete’s side!
Goldberg: Cut my music! At the Great American Bash, I did what I said I was going to do… I took out the garbage. Like I told you from the start, this wasn’t just business, you made it a personal thing, you made it a reckoning. So Ryback, I called you out, we collided at the Bash and I took you out punk! I don’t blame you Ryback if you don’t ever want to step into the ring again, and if you ever call me out I will spear your ass and do worse than what I did this past Sunday.
*crowd cheers loudly*
Goldberg: With every great match comes controversy. I read the critic’s reports saying that they didn’t like the ending of our PPV brawl. *Looks right at the camera* This was a brawl, not a match. I didn’t come to be technical, to display my wrestling abilities, or to make his ass submit. This was an all-out street fight. I said it before in my past interviews that this was not going to be pretty. Either Ryback or myself was going out for a very long time and I’ll be damned if it was me. To shut the critics up, this wasn’t a match, this was a personal matter. So Ryback, if you’re watching from home or the hospital. I advise you to stay away because I’m not going anywhere. And as for my opponent tonight, I don’t care who you are… You’re NEXT!
King: It's a good job Goldberg does not care who is opponent is, because I have no clue who he is either Ross.
JR: Well he's already at ringside King, his name is James Jackson.
King: Never heard of him Ross.
JR: I can tell you he's a man very highly regarded around here locally King. competed on numerous Indy circuits and what a chance he has here to impress.
King: A chance? *king laughs* You call facing Goldberg a chance? The only chance facing Goldberg presents is a chance of spending a night in the hospital.
Goldberg vs. James Jackson (Mike Enos)
Start at 2:00 stop at 4:10
King: Oh look.. Goldberg won! who would have guessed it.
JR: Give credit to this young gun James Jackson though folks, he landed some good offensive moves on Bill Goldberg and showed he's no coward and was out to make the best of this chance.
*Goldberg now stands over his fallen opponent, with the referee raising his arm and the crowd chanting his name he begins to make his up out of the ring and up the ramp.*
King: I have a feeling this feud with Ryback is not over King.
JR: I would have to agree King. The question is.. Is Ryback really hurt? Or will we hear from Ryback sooner then Goldberg thinks? I guess only time will tell.
*With the crowd still cheering for Goldberg as he makes his way to the back, his beaten opponent starts making his way to his feet very gingerly. A small section of fans begin to mock him by cheering for his performance while some feel sorry for his beating. However, it's about to get worse...*
INSERT RAVEN THEME & PIC
JR: Raven? Not again. Surly not again!
King: I think so Ross! Raven should be careful. We saw what happened the last time he tried to bait Sting into action.
JR: Well I have no idea what this man has running through his head, either way.. he's heading to the ring!
*Raven runs down the ramp and steam rolls through the exiting opponent of Goldberg, He begins viciously beating him down with kicks to the head and midsection. The crowd are already chanting for Sting. Raven then throws the man into the steel steps before picking him back up and rolling him into the ring.
Raven then searches the ring and eventually brings out a Steel Tool box which he throws in the ring. As the Box crashes against the mat the box opens and reveals numerous tools from a screw driver to nuts and bolts.
Raven then enters the ring with a sadistic look across his face as the crowd continue to chant "Sting!" over and over. Raven then picks up the tool box and waits for the man to stand once more.. The man eventually gets back up only to see Raven charging at him before knocking him down after taking the Steel box right into the fore head splitting him open instantly. *
JR: This is ugly folks, just plain ugly. Come on Raven, you don't need to do this.. what did this guy ever do too you?.
King: What did Trish ever do too Raven Ross? This man is insane! he's driven by his hate of Sting. I don't think anyone is safe from Raven.
*With the camera now focusing on the rafters, there's no sign of Sting. Raven looks up himself before smiling. He then walks over to where the rest of the tools lay on the mat and picks up a hammer before kicking the rest out and clearing the ring.*
JR: A Hammer? Oh come on! This is enough Raven, we need some damn security out here!
King: I wouldn't fancy trying to stop this loony at the best of times, even less so when he's got a Hammer in his hand.
*Raven then picks back up the injured man and holds him up, with blood pouring from the face of the man.. Raven looks up at the rafters one more time. Again no sign off Sting. Raven once more smiles before his expression turns into one of complete anger, he then swings the Hammer right into the gut of the man as he drops down holding his stomach and the crowd begin booing.
Raven then smiles once again and looks up at the rafters, with still no sign of Sting. Raven then picks up the guy to his knees and holds up his chin. With blood continuing to pour from the forehead, Raven lines up another shot. this time aiming straight between the eyes.. he stare's eye to eye with the man before saying "Blame Sting!" he then takes a swing and looks certain to hit the man when the lights go out..
The crowd pop and begin chanting "Sting!" again. When the lights come back on.. Raven kicks the man away as he rolls out of the ring. Raven then stares up at the rafters where Sting can now be seen looking back at him which sparks another pop from the crowd. Raven then throws the Hammer out of the ring and points for Sting to come down here when the lights go off once more.
The tension in the arena is high and the crowd are excited at the thought of again the Stinger getting hold of Raven and bringing justice, however..
The lights come back on and the crowd pop when they see Sting now standing in the middle of the ring, however he is not face to face with Raven.. Raven is sat down in one of the corners with a smile on his face and instead.. Sting is face to face with.. *
King: Oh...My...God! He's huge Ross!
JR: It can't be! That's.. that's the Monster Abyss!
*With the crowd in total shock they pause before popping as Abyss and Sting stand face to face, Abyss then looks over to Raven for approval. Raven then nods before once again smiling and without hesitation Abyss then latches his fist across the throat of Sting.. he instantly begins squeezing, with the pressure being applied Sting drops his bat. Abyss then uses his brute force to swing Sting into the ropes before catching him again and delivering the Black Hole Slam as the crowd begin Booing.
With the damage done. Abyss now stands back up and looks at Raven, Raven still sitting down begins to applaud the Monster Abyss before instructing him to beat down on Sting more.
Raven then instructs Abyss to retrieve a steel chair from ringside- which he does. Raven then instructs Abyss to bash the already beaten Sting even more. Finally after a minute or so Raven instructs him to stop. Raven then yells out to a ring attendant to get him a mic.
Raven: *Yelling down at Sting* Fate Sting, Fate is a curious beast. No matter how fast you run. No matter how far you go. You can't escape it. Fate, Sting, is what brought you here tonight in my ring. Weeks ago, I destroyed your good friend Warrior, I broke his soul, I made him beg for his life. And what did you do for him? Nothing- you set back and watched me make an example of him. Then last week at the Bash, I tried to make another example out of Trish Stratus.
Why her? Its simple, she is one of those has beens like you who retired years ago, trying to hang on to their former glory by making one last run in this sport. Yet you made it a point to come out and save her? Why? WHY? WHY HER AND NOT WARRIOR? You try to save a woman you don't even know but cannot make the time to save your oldest friend- that’s fucked up
But it woke you up, it brought you out, just as it did tonight. Yet tonight, I had the element of surprise, I figured you would come out yet again and I figured that tonight would be the perfect time to introduce you to my first member of my Flock- the monster Abyss. Like me, Abyss has suffered abandonment, he has suffered loneliness, he has suffered nightmares that has scarred him for like. But like me, he used those emotions, he used them to make him strong, more importantly, he uses them as a weapon. And with my guidance, Abyss will be unstoppable. And Sting, this is only the beginning, a mere taste of what is yet to come your way. A mere taste of the reign of terror that shall engulf WWE- and you Sting, won't be able to stop me or my Flock. You see, Abyss and I are only the foundation of the Flock- there will be more- you have been warned. So it is written. So it shall come to pass. Quote the Raven, Nevermore.
*With the crowd totally stunned by the actions of Raven and Abyss the arena is in total silence. Eventually the dark duo leave as help comes rushing down from the back to aid to Sting and Goldberg's opponent. When help reaches Sting.. the lights again go out, when the come back on.. Sting is nowhere to be found as the camera zooms in on the rafters once again.*
JR: By God it’s back… Raven’s Flock is back, and the first member of his nest is The Monster, Abyss!
King: Sting is no longer the savior we all thought. Raven and Abyss are here to stop all of that nonsense.
JR: How will Sting combat the two of them? Raven is powerful by himself but with that monster Abyss at his side I don’t think Sting will be able to withstand both of them. Will he get help?
King: He won’t plain and simple, now if you will be quiet so we can go to commercial? Because when we get back we will hear from the Kings of Tag Team Wrestling, the WWE Tag Team Champions, All American Perfection!
JR: Bah Gawd King, the destruction, the brutality shown by Raven and Abyss is downright scary King. Raven has been tracking Sting for months and tonight he set Sting up and finally got his hands on him.. With Abyss at his side, the question now must be.. can even Sting, a man of justice stop such a force of evil?
King: Ross I told you to be quite, but I will say I haven’t seen anything like this since the days of the Ministry, I mean that attack on Warrior, then Raven was willing to go one step further and attack Trish Stratus... and then all for this? All to get his hands on Sting? Raven is just pure evil partner.
JR: He sure is.. And with the Monster Abyss at his side? Things could be about to get really ugly around here King.
King: Well Ross, here's something a little more positive for Raw! I hear the Tag Team Champions All American Perfection are on their way out here!
JR: Oh great.
*With crowd still booing the previous actions of Raven and Abyss, the level of noise and boo's is raised again at the sight of Vickie Guerrero. The self-confessed "Cougar" stands at the top of the stage with a bright smile on her and begins to speak.*
Vickie: Excuse me!
Vickie: Excuse me!
*Crowd boo more as Vickie's smile is now replaced with a scowl*
Vickie: I said EXCUSE ME!! *Crowd continue booing* You people are so rude!
King: Come on now! Show a little more respect for the best manager in the business today.
JR: Best manager? I'm not sure about that King. They just don't like Vickie Guerrero and that voice, who knew.
Vickie: It is my honor… *Crowd Heavily Boo* I SAID EXCUSE ME!!
King: How disrespectful are these fans tonight Ross?
JR: They pay their money King, there entitled to their own opinion.
*Vickie waits for the booing to stop before speaking over the now slightly less noisy crowd*
Vickie: It is my honor! to present to the WWE Universe! The undefeated and reining Tag Team Champions of the world.. Mr. Perfection and the All American! Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger the All American perfection!
*The crowd instantly boo at the sight of the tag team champions, Dolph and Swagger shrug off the boo's and begin strutting down to the ring in their usual arrogant and cocky style. With the titles around their waist's they enter the ring and Dolph grabs a mic from someone at ringside.*
DZ: Roll the footage! *Dolph points to the Titantron*
*The Titantron then shows footage of the tag team match that took place at the Great American Bash. The last thing that it shows is Swagger hitting Hero with a Gutwrench powerbomb as Ziggler also combines it with the Zig Zag before they pick up the three count and are announced as the winner.*
DZ: DAMN! we are good.. Did you see that? I mean did you see THAT?!
Jack Swagger: They weren’t ready for it. They had no idea! Admit, you have never seen a move like that before!
*Crowd boo while Dolph and Jack smile*
DZ: Oh come on! That was impressive and you all know it!
*Crowd continue to Boo*
DZ: You can all boo, but you know it's true! And on that note.. The Winners! And still the best damn tag team in the world today... All American Perfection!!
*The crowd continue booing while Ziggler and Swagger hold up their titles while Vickie applauds them.*
DZ: You guys are idiots! You wouldn't know what talent is.. if it hit you in the face! So what's talent? Is talent Hulk Hogan? *Crowd cheer* So is talent that dinosaur still hanging around here like a bad smell just trying to steal some of our spot light?
Maybe talent is someone like Austin Aries? *Big pop* Oh sure.. You cheer for him right, you cheer for someone who begged for a chance, someone who barked too Teddy Long so he could throw him a bone! Champion or not. Austin Aries struck lucky! He was giving his chance while me and Swagger just took it.
There is no "Champion" on this planet who have been as good as me or Swagger have been, every challenge that's been put it front of us.. we have knocked it out of the park!
Jack Swagger: Unlike Chris Jericho we were able to retain our championships, and we had a far greater challenge because we had to face two opponents. We had the odds stacked against us, Chris Jericho had to beat one man and he couldn’t do it. We beat two men and we were able to win and retain. So not only are we the greatest Tag Team Champions, we are the greatest Champions in this business, now give us our due respect!
*Ziggler and Swagger smirk while Vickie claps in agreement, and the crowd boo’s furiously.*
DZ: So what next for All American Perfection? I mean, we beat everyone put in front of us... from the jokers of wrestling, to the all mouth and no action Prime Time Players. We beat the supposedly Words Greatest Tag Team and Beer Money too! We have proven everything we had to prove.. that we are that damn good! *Ziggler smirks* There should be no doubt that we are indeed the best tag team this company has ever seen.. so with that said and everyone already worth beating... beat. I guess we can take the night off and do what we do best outside of the ring too!
*With the crowd continuing to boo and chanting "Kings Of Wrestling" hoping for them to come down, Dolph brushes his hands through his hair and whispers "Show... Off." before throwing the mic down, as the stable begin to leave the ring.*
*the crowd erupts*
JR: Ladies and gentlemen, can this be?
King: What? No way! What are these degenerates doing here?
JR: I don’t have the answer to that King, but the team of Swagger and Ziggler don’t look to happy.
King: Ha, look at Vickie, she seems irate!
JR: Irate or not, DX is back and business just picked up!!! Triple H and Shawn Michaels are back together again! This is monumental King. Whatever DX wants, they always get! And I can bet the family farm that DX is eyeing those tag team belts!
*crowd chants DX, DX, DX, DX*
Triple H: Are you ready?
*big pop from the fans*
Triple H: NO!!!! I SAID, ARE… YOU… READY!!!!
*crowd on their feet… DX, DX, DX, DX*
Triple H: Then for the thousands in attendance, for the millions watching at home...and just because we're back baby....LLLLLLETS'S GET READY TO SUCK IT!!!!!
*Gives the moment to Shawn Michaels. Shawn is just standing there smiling at the crowd.*
Triple H: *whispers to Shawn* hey bud, this is where you have to do you’re, “if you’re not down with that part”.
Shawn Michaels: I know what I have to say Hunter. I did not just join DX 5 minutes ago! I wrote the line myself!
Triple H: Well, you were just standing there. Were you asleep? Long flight or what?
Shawn Michaels: No I wasn’t asleep and yes the flight was rather long, too much turbulence, but I was just taking in all the energy from the fans tonight. It’s good to be back. I had just forgotten how good this felt.
Triple H: Yeah, but some of these fans, don’t like us Shawn.
Shawn Michaels: Well… If you're not down with that, WE GOT TWO WORDS FOR YA!!!!
*Crowd: SUCK IT!!!!!!*
Shawn Michaels: Honestly, it’s good to be back in the WWE. And for those of you who have been hiding under a rock, we are D-Generation X, the greatest faction that the wrestling industry has ever seen. We are the most dominating force. We are feared by many. We are…
*Triple H pulls the mic away from Shawn*
Triple H: I think they got it Shawn. I’m sure they also know that you’re The Showstopper, The Heartbreak Kid, Mr. Wrestlemania. And they also know that I am The Game, The Cerebral Assassin, The King of Kings.
Shawn Michaels: Can I finish Trips?
Triple H: Go ahead.
Shawn Michaels: *looks at Triple H and smirks* All kidding aside. It feels GOOD to be back where we belong. The question that I heard from our loved ones and friends was this: “Why Shawn, why go back for another run?” Let me answer in the best possible way. You see, I’ve been sitting at home, sitting down on my comfortable recliner watching TV. Hunter and I would often call each other and we both had the same disappointment, the tag team division in the WWE is weak…
Triple H: And lame.
Shawn Michaels: Let me finish Hunter. And lame. We are here to bring prestige and honor back to the division. We are here to bring back class to the WWE.
Triple H: Who the hell are we kidding? DX is back to dominate and bring down anyone who opposes us. We are not taking names; we are just here to kick some ass! This brings me to our first order of business, you two ass clowns. *points to Ziggler and Swagger, crowd boos.*
Shawn Michaels: Forgive us Swiggler and Zagger… We forgot you both were standing there with your mother.
Triple H: You chumps call yourselves the All American Perfection? It’s more like the All American Perverts. Word is that you two still sleep with your mother Vickie.
Triple H: You guys come out here and run your mouths saying that you have beaten other tag teams. Bad news you morons, DX wasn’t on that list! We are not your normal everyday tag team. We are a dominating tag team. We take what we want. And I believe you both have something we want…
Shawn Michaels: Please Hunter, I hope you’re not talking about their mom…
Triple H: Of course not Shawn, come on, I have better taste than that. She has to be 60 or something. She has to be up there with Mae Young!
Shawn Michaels: Ok, just making sure!
*crowd chants Vickie Young… Vickie Young… Vickie Young…*
Triple H: Now where was I before I was rudely interrupted. Oh yeah, I was addressing Swiggler and Zagger. You guys sure talk the talk, but I’ll be honest, you haven’t stepped in the ring with Shawn and I. You both have something we want, and that is the Tag Team Belts. And we want them right now!!!
JR: This sounds like a challenge to me King! Answer the man dammit!
King: They’re not even ready JR! They just competed at the Bash!
JR: Ready or not King, this is not a sport for the weak. If you compete in the WWE, you better be ready.
Triple H: Don’t look at your mom, she can’t help you.
Shawn Michaels: So what do you say boys? You all wanna wrastle?
Triple H: All American Punks!!! Put your money where your mouth is and let’s do this right now!!!
King: Right now!? They can't just come back and demand matches Ross.
JR: DX tend to do whatever they like King. Here comes a referee, I think this match is going to happen.
*All American Perfection begin arguing with the officials trying to stop this match going ahead while DX enter the ring and begin mocking them.*
All American Perfection vs. D Generation X
(Dolph Ziggler/ Edge, Jack Swagger/ Randy Orton)
Watch from 4:40 till 8:20
King: Oh come one, these guys are nothing but a bunch of no good cheaters!
JR: Like All American Perfection has never done something like that before.
After the legdrop from HBK, Swagger falls to the outside. Triple H goes out after Swagger and rolls him into the ring. Swagger then scrambles over and tags in an unexpecting Dolph Ziggler who gets in slowly. Triple H motions for Ziggler to get into the ring and he does. Triple H then runs at Ziggler and hits a clothesline, followed by another. Ziggler gets up slowly, and Triple H goes over to pick him up and Ziggler hits an elbow to the midsection of Triple H. Ziggler then gets up and hits Triple H with a jumping DDT. Ziggler gets up takes a minute to recuperate then smirks and taunts the crowd. Ziggler goes next to a fallen Triple H and hits a jumping elbow drop, and while on the ground locks in a headlock. Ziggler then turns the headlock into a headstand. Ziggler then let’s go and covers,
Triple H kicks out and Ziggler grabs Triple H by the head drags him to the turnbuckle, and tags in Swagger. Swagger kicks Triple H in the gut a few times and Triple H falls, then Swagger grabs Triple H by the arm and hits a clothesline. Swagger backs up for the Swagger Bomb, Swagger runs, hops up on the turnbuckle, but Triple H gets the knees up. Swagger rolls away, and Triple H crawls over to HBK. Triple H gets the tag to HBK and HBK grabs the ankles of Swagger and drags him back from his corner.
JR: Triple H got the tag to HBK but Swagger couldn’t get to Ziggler. Swagger is in trouble here.
HBK then locks in the figure four leg lock on Swagger. As HBK applies more pressure Swagger is able to turn HBK over and reverse the pressure. Swagger let’s go and clutches his legs. Both men get up at the same time and HBK hits a flying forearm smash. Shawn Michaels kips up and Swagger gets up groggily and HBK hits a dropkick. Swagger gets up groggily once more, and Michaels runs off the ropes, but Swagger catches the attempted crossbody and hits a powerslam.
JR: Both men are down and reaching for their partners… and there it is, tag to Triple H!
King: Tag to Dolph Ziggler
Both men come in like a house of fire but Ziggler immediately catches Triple H with a legdrop bulldog. Ziggler celebrates and tells Triple H to get up, and Triple H gets up and rests in the corner, and Ziggler hits a stinger splash, followed by a sitout facebuster. Ziggler gets up and waits for Triple H, then Shawn Michaels attempts to get in the ring, and the ref tries to get him back, as he does Ziggler calls for Swagger to get in the ring without a tag. Ziggler picks Triple H up and feeds him to Swagger.
JR: There they are, your cheaters are here
King: They are just returning the favor from earlier, let’s watch this JR, let’s watch this move!
JR: I don’t think so, Shawn Michaels faked on the attempt and pointed the ref to Swagger and Ziggler and he is telling Swagger to get back
King: This isn’t fair, all they do is cheat!
JR: I call it great mind games.
After the ref tries to back up Michaels, HBK points them in the direction of Swagger and Ziggler. The ref goes over and pushes Swagger back telling him to get back to the apron. Ziggler goes over and argues with the ref, and the ref turns to Ziggler and tells him to stop arguing. The ref then sees Triple H make the tag to Shawn Michaels, and Shawn Michaels gets in and begins to stomp the mat.
JR: he’s setting up for it, he’s calling for it…
King: This isn’t fair… this isn’t fair
Ziggler turns and…
JR: Superkick! Superkick from Shawn Michaels!
Shawn Michaels covers and Triple H knocks Swagger off the apron, cover
JR: DX has beaten All American Perfection at their own game. Has All American Perfection finally met their match?
King: Not even close, The ref was horrible give a fair ref and All American Perfection wins.
JR: Well from my eyes the reuniting DX has just beaten the Tag Champs, I believe that puts them at the top of the list of contender’s
King: Not even close, I’d rather see those Not the Greatest Kings of Wrestling there than these two degenerates
JR: Well they are what you say they are, so we will see how they fair going forward, but from what I can see they will fair pretty well.
King: doesn’t matter. All American Perfection are still the WWE Tag Team Champions, and that’s all that matters
JR: Well stay tuned folks, you aren’t going to want to miss this, up next for the first time, we will hear from the United Kingdom as a group, with their newest addition Wade Barrett.
JR: And here they come, with the new United States Champion Sheamus in tow, for the first time with Wade Barrett their newest member, possibly the strongest faction we may have ever seen or will ever see the United Kingdom
King: these men are going to rule the WWE. I don’t see any one team of superstars that may be able to stand up to these guys
JR: King we don’t agree often but I have to agree with you here, they may rule the WWE for a long time to come.
*The United Kingdom’s new music hits and they ascend to the ring. All four men of the United Kingdom stand tall in the middle of the ring to a chorus of boos. Sheamus stands in the middle of the group, with Wade Barrett to his left, and Drew McIntyre on the right of Sheamus, and William Regal to the left of Wade Barrett. with his United States Championship over his shoulder with a mic as he is the first to speak.*
Sheamus: The Great American Bash ... What an amazin' show. You all got to witness honor bein' brought back to the ever-so dishonored United States championship. The Great White and The Golden Boy fought tooth and nail for the now prestigious United States championship ... And guess what folks, like always ... The Great White smelt blood, and he went in for the kill, and is now the new United States Champion!!
*The crowd boos as Sheamus poses with the championship and the UK applauds him.*
Sheamus: Hey now, I know'whacha thinkin'! You all think I cheated, right?! Well I didn't! I'm just better than Cody, and he knows that all too well! I was the better man; I have ALWAYS ... Been the better man! I am a former two time WWE champion, and now I have the United States championship on me resume!
But enough of me ... Mr. Regal, Mr. McIntyre, would you fellas like to introduce our new man?
*William Regal steps forward, and takes hold of the microphone off of Sheamus*
Regal: Thank you sir, however I hasten to add, that Mr. Barrett here, approached us, with the idea of costing Cody Rhodes his United States Championship. But we didn't cheat, oh no, darlings, we just took advantage of the situation.
Sheamus is nothing more than a well deserving champion, who did not need Wade here to aid him in victory. But why not throw salt into Cody's wounds? Why not, for lack of a better expression, add insult to injury? Cretins of the World Wrestling Entertainment Universe, why not bow down to the real leader of the WWE!
We have two former King of the Rings of the WWE, we have 2 World Championships, multiple Intercontinental Championships, and now, the 2 time US Champion with our stable. Heck, we also have the former Alliance Commissioner.
Honey, the American Dream is often associated to one man: Dusty Rhodes! However, Sheamus here, achieved the dream, and more successfully than any man gone before us. He came here with the single goal, to become a champion in the WWE, and now since his debut, he's held no fewer than 4 championships here, in wrestling's global company.
But now, it's time myself, Mr. McIntyre, and Mr. Barrett reach our full potential. More gold is in our future, and Mr. Nicky from Spirit Squad, along with Sir Stut-a-lot, your titles will soon be with us. The Greatest Man who Ever Lived... from America, will vanquish, at the hands of the United Kingdom. We will rebuild the British Empire, and the WWE will succumb, to the great British strength, the great British willpower, and we will create the Great. British. Legacy.
*Drew McIntyre steps forward and Regal hand’s McIntyre the mic.*
Drew McIntyre: What happened Sunday to Cody Rhodes was deserved. Everything that has happened at our hands was Cody’s own doing. He once was a man who took the opportunity to capitalize for his own gains whenever he had the chance, including attacking tag team partners like myself. But now the tables are turned, and Cody is nothing more than a mere peasant and the United Kingdom will move on from peasants and bring royalty back to wrestling.
*The fans boo and are in utter disgust with the four men in the ring.*
Drew McIntyre: See Cody with the addition of Wade Barrett we have now become not only the strongest group currently in the WWE, but in history. What happened Sunday is only the start of something much greater for the United Kingdom. While we will win our titles and dominate the WWE, we are here to show these filthy Americans what true wrestling royalty is, we are the best wrestlers in the world, we are the best stable in the world, we are the best breed of humans in the world. It’s time to usher in the new era Ladies and Gents, and that era started last night, with this man, Wade Barrett!
*The fans boo defiantly as McIntyre stops talking, and hands the mic to the newest member of the group, Wade Barrett. Barrett then lifts the mic to his mouth, but the crowd boos loudly once again and he lowers the mic, smirking. He raises it once again, and begins to speak.*
Barrett: My return to the WWE signified a new era into this company. An era where this company will not be recognized as an American based company, where every big superstar is American. This company will soon be recognized as the home of the most dominant group of all time The UK. You see, now, people will take us seriously because at the Great American Bash, we as a group won our first Title, when I helped Sheamus defeat that idiot Cody Rhodes. But know this, WWE Universe; winning the United States Title is just the beginning! Soon, we will all stand in this ring before you with the US Title, The Tag Team Titles and Austin Aries I direct this at you.... The WWE Championship! Not only are we the most dominant group in the WWE right now, we will soon be the most dangerous group in wrestling history. Forget The Four Horsemen, DX, the NWO, The United Kingdom is here and will never go away again.
*All four men raise their hands in victory as the crowd continues to boo them loudly.*
Barrett: You see, I have already stunned the world with my shocking debut here with the Nexus, and no-one thought that we would ever see a group that would make an immediate impact like the Nexus did. After all, we took out everyone in the WWE, and thrust this company into a state of chaos. But I see Nexus as a favor. I was screwed out of Nexus by the man you know as CM Punk.
*The crowd cheers at the mention of CM Punk*
JR: Is that why Barrett has seemingly attacked Punk all these months King?
King: Why ask me, how would I know for God's sakes!?
Barrett: That group was a failure because I never won the WWE Title, and we never really took over the WWE. Now, with this illustrious group including Drew McIntyre, former IC Champion and 'The Chosen One', William Regal, a true wrestling great, The Ringleader. Sheamus, The Great White, a former WWE Champion and a true warrior. And now me, The Bare Knuckle Brawler, The Pinnacle of Wrestling, Wade Barrett! We four men have already made a huge impact on the WWE, but unlike the Nexus, we will utterly dominate for years to come and truly abolish the stereotype that Brits can't wrestle because WE ARE THE UNITED KINGDOM!
Punk makes his way to the stage with a mic already in hand to a great welcome from the crowd in attendance. An intense look on his face before he finally speaks.
Punk: Well then....congratulations....Sheamus. You now stand before the WWE as the United States Champion. Bet you feel proud of that, don't you?
Sheamus nods as the fellow UK members also how support for Sheamus while the crowd boos.
Punk: Well, you shouldn't.
Fans cheer as The UK show great disdain toward Punk
Punk: You four in the ring are nothing but short of dishonorable cowards. Needing strength in numbers because alone, you couldn't get the job done.
Sheamus, you could have done the honorable thing and known that all you've done to Rhodes, he would've gone through anything to get the win at The Great American Bash and he did.
Had you pinned down and ready for defeat, these fans were referees that day as they counted the 3 yet because the ref was down and out, you saw nothing but an easy way out and had to have Barrett be your ace to win. Knowing you couldn't have your cronies Regal and McIntyre at your side, you had no chance against Rhodes and you knew it.
Try and make it about trying to be all superior and how the UK is or will be the most powerful stable in the WWE to date but all I see right now are fools believing their new found strength can and will overcome in the WWE when so many others have failed trying to do the same.
Fans cheers as Punk continues.
Punk: Now that I'm through with Sheamus, I want to move on to the man of the hour, Barrett.
Fans boos at Barrett who has a smug look on his face.
Punk: You returned to the WWE as a masked man. The same M.O. as the coward who has been on my ass for no good reason for weeks on end now, leading me to believe that it could be you but then I see you run your mouth. Failing to brag about your success on your attacks on me like I know that prick would do but then again, you mention me by way of Nexus. -Punk laughs-
I screwed you out of The Nexus? No, no, no. Barrett you screwed yourself out of The Nexus. Your ego was your downfall and I'm sure it will be again in The UK. If it's you that's been attacking me because of that petty reason alone, then I'll be sure to give you an even bigger reason to come after me when I knock you out after I hit you with The Go to Sleep.
I said it at The Great American Bash, there will be no more Mr. Nice Punk. You made a mistake coming after me, Barrett and if coming after you means I gotta go through The UK to do so, I will do it gladly.
Fans go nuts at this as The UK are not pleased.
Punk: Thankfully, I'm not alone in this battle and I know someone, who's also itching to say a few words to The UK. Say hello to.....Tyler Black!!!!
Fans give Black a fantastic welcome as he now joins Punk on the stage, Punk extending his hand out to Black, which Black gladly accepts before Punk hands over the mic to Black, who looks ready to speak.
Black: Thank you, Punk.
Fans cheer Black on
Black: The UK is now going to be forced to be reckoned with, huh? Remind me again, how is it one win and a glorified new member makes it so the loss I made sure Regal and McIntyre had alongside Angle, of course, be so simply forgotten?
Regal and McIntyre are fuming in the ring as Black smirks before continuing to speak.
Black: One single act of "success" does not make you a force to be reckoned with, it's the many you can actually achieve and even the ones that don't that make it so you are known to be a force to be reckoned especially when you can hold your head high with some honor after it's all said and done.
Black looks towards Punk, knowing full well, Punk appreciates those words and that his mission to bring honor to the WWE has at least reached out to one person. Even more so in a ROH alumni like himself.
Take me, for example. Cena? When was the last time he actually mattered after I was finished with him? That match Aries won to become this year's King of the Ring? He won against me and we put on a show, a match to be talked for ages to come. Bringing in Angle? Sorry, Sandow....-points to the fans-.....you're welcome.
Fans laugh as The UK scowl at both Punk and Black
Black: Taking out The UK? That's the next step in my ever glorious WWE career. Punk, now joins the fight against the UK but it's been myself and this man, who've made it our goal to rid the WWE of The UK.
So Rhodes, why doesn't the WWE's Golden Boy, come on out and tell these arrogant imbeciles, a few words of what's going on in your mind after what happened at The Great American Bash?
I know these fans would love to hear from you and The UK need to hear what you have to say.
King: Will Rhodes answer the call?
JR: Ya darn tooting he will!
