Cena is back tonight as he readies for his rematch. Hogan, Flair and HBK will start Raw this week!
WWE Hall of Fame Forum
Cole introduces Hogan to the ring. He comes out in red and yellow, minus the feather boa. Flair follows suit, and heads to the ring in a dapper suit. HBK out in a cowboy hat, a Remington t-shirt, jeans and a black blazer, as always looking like he got dressed at the last moment. They all sit at an announce table in the ring. Cole says they will discuss Cena vs Lesnar. Cole says that for those unaware, Brock defeated Cena for the WWE WHC. Last week Cena invoked his re-match clause at NoC.
Cole – HBK, what do you think are Cena’s chances winning back the WWE WHC at NoC?
HBK – As much as I’d love to be long winded, but I’m not. With all due respect, his chances are not good. It’s ain’t happenin’.
Flair – He got the holy hell beat out of Michael.
HBK – Now look, I think, especially this panel here, the three of us know a man comes to a crossroads where he needs to make a decision. We all made it, wasn’t easy, but we made it anyway, and I think Cena is at that crossroads, and maybe it’s time to say when.
Hogan – Let me tell you something brother. When it’s your time, you know it’s your time. John Cena’s time’s not up, he can still go. (mixed)
Cole – Ric, by your earlier statement, it sounds like you agree with Shawn Michaels’ assessment?
Flair – First of all, I do agree with Shawn, but I have to say that all three of us think the world of John Cena. He’s the franchise, a 15 time WHC! That’s right, 15 times, and he is the franchise, like it or not. But do I want him against Brock Lesnar at NoC? I don’t think so. I don’t feel it.
Cole – Hulk, your prediction? Cena or Brock Lesnar at NoC.
Hogan – I’ve gotten to know Cena on a close, personal level. This hustle, loyalty, respect, this isn’t a marketing logo, it’s not a marketing logo. This is really John Cena. He’s got heart, he won’t stop. So I’m rooting for Cena all the way on this one.
Flair – Whoa, I’m rooting for Cena too.
HBK – This isn’t a personality contest. Everybody likes John Cena. It doesn’t change the fact that he hasn’t got a chance.
Hogan – Wait a minute guys, I saw the first match in Chicago. Brock dominated Cena, beat the hell out of Cena, but Cena found a way to win!
HBK – I don’t mean to interrupt you, but obviously, I’m going to. John Cena, you just said it, nobody takes a beating like that and comes out the same man! He’s not the same. It’s that simple.
Hogan – Before you interrupted me, I said he took a beating, but he got his hand raised. This is the rubber match. They’ve each got a victory. Some way, somehow, Cena will find a way to get his hand raised brother, that’s all I’m saying.
Flair – You don’t believe that.
HBK – You don’t believe it, he don’t believe it, and I certainly don’t believe it, and these people don’t believe it, and the reason is it’s unbelievable.
Hogan – I’ll tell you something you can believe, John Cena’s a different animal, (Cena’ music hits) and he’s got something to different…
Cena out pointing to the camera that’s not on him. He shows off his towel, then hands it off to a young fan. Mixed reaction, mostly heat for Cena.
Cena – You can hear them, just like I can. Everybody is weighing in on me after SummerSlam. What’s going through his mind, what should he do? Brock Lesnar, Heyman, The Authority, the WWE ‘Universe’, and now a panel of Hall of Famers. I want to say…
“Cena sucks!” chants are louder, and not at all mixed. It’s all negativity for the face of the WWE.
Cena – I want to say, before I go any further, I have the utmost respect for the three of you, everyone at this table has influenced my life. Shawn, as a professional and friend. Naich, we’ve had some professional times, some recreational times styling and profiling. Point blank, if there was no Hulk Hogan, there would be no John Cena. But I’m sick of all this talk about what I should do, and where I should go. I’m out here tonight to tell you what’s going on with me! (heat) Everybody saw SummerSlam, I’m not going to dance around it. 16 German suplexes. There is no sports cliché, or winsome mumbo-jumbo that will let me dance around this, SummerSlam was an ass whooping. A 100% beat down. Shawn, insightful as always, you said a fight like that changes a man, and you’re right, it does change a man. Because after being dropped on my head damn near 20 times, when I came to in the training room, the doctor asked me what I wanted to do, I said fight Brock Lesnar again! (pop) I see how you’re looking at me, I see it! You’re saying, good for you John, you got killed in there! Why do you want to be beat down like that again? I stood in there and took a beat down not many would take. Why do I want to get in there again? Am I crazy? Shawn, I don’t plan on doing it again, I’m going to bring the fight to Brock Lesnar at NoC. And I know you (HBK) have your doubts, and I know Naich, you have your doubts, Hulkster, I want you to look at me when I’m talking to you. This is the biggest rematch of my life, but I’m not going to NoC to beat Brock Lesnar. I’m going to NoC to beat Brock Lesnar’s ass.
Cena drops the mic on the table, leaves the ring and marches up the ramp and out, never stopping, never looking back at the Hall of Famers or the fans. Later Cena will face Bray Wyatt. Later the Dusts face the Usos for the TTC.

Kane, in a black suit and tie, white shirt, to the ring. The ring is set up for the eulogy. A podium, dark wreaths, and a picture of Ambrose that looks almost as bad as a mug shot.
Kane – We are gathered here this evening to honor the memory of the unstable, lunatic fringe Dean Ambrose. But tonight is not a mourning of the departed, it is a celebration of the future. The future of the WWE Mr. MITB, Seth Rollins.
Rollins to the ring in black suit, tie, and shirt, case in hand. Of course his roots are freshly bleached. They shake hands in the ring to huge heat. “You sold out!” chants.
Rollins – I was the leader of the most dominant group in the history of the WWE, The Shield. There is a reason why I hand picked Ambrose to be a member of The Shield. Pain was never a factor for Dean. Fear was never a factor for Dean. Dean Ambrose was a courageous fighter, but last week, I had to prove at his expense, once again, that The Authority always wins. Now, with a heavy heart I’d like to take a look at the match that you, you, the WWE ‘Universe’ chose as the demise for Dean Ambrose.
Video recap of the high points of the match.
Rollins – Hahahaha! Hahahaha! Oh, can you imagine the moment of impact when I crushed Dean Ambrose’s skull, when I crushed his head into those cinder blocks? I wonder what was going through his mind, do you think it even donned on Dean Ambrose that he was in way over his head? Do you think it donned on him that he was outmatched not only physically, but mentally as well. You know, it’s no secret that those cinder blocks weren’t out there by accident. That head ache that Dean Ambrose is going to have for the rest of his life, that’s no accident either. It saddens me that the casualty that’s become of Dean Ambrose’s career can be summed up in two simple words – what if? What if Dean Ambrose had known his place? What if Dean Ambrose had recognized my superiority? (“What?”) What if Dean Ambrose had simply walked away when he had the opportunity? (“What?”) The real tragedy in all of this is that we will never really know the answers to those what ifs. Because, as far as I’m concerned, it’s highly likely that you will never see Dean Ambrose again! (“What?”) I am the one who crated The Shield, and I am the one who has destroyed it!
Reigns’ music hits and Rollins looks shocked and nervous. Kane removes his jacket and tie as Reigns comes down. Rollins follows suit. Reigns right on Kane outside the ring. Kane on Reigns, but Reigns reverses Kane into the stairs. Rollins looks like a trapped rat. Reigns rolls in and all over Rollins, trashing the set in the ring. Reigns with the podium to Rollins head. Rollins ducks Reigns, in a corner, but then takes a huge clothesline from Reigns. Reigns is ready, but Kane pulls Rollins from the ring before Reigns can abuse Rollins any longer. Kane and Rollins on the ramp staring down at Reigns in the ring who glares back. They yell smack back and forth, off mic.
Recap of the Hall of Famers that started the show, arguing about what will happen to Cena at NoC.
Goldust – Tonight, we have a golden opportunity to get what we want. It’s calling out to us. Can you hear it?
Stardust – Tonight! Tonight the stars align. This celestial event may never happen again! Tonight we become TTCs! Or there will be a cataclysmic eruption of the galaxy. Tonight.
Goldust – They will never forget the name of Goldust.
Stardust – And Stardust!

Jey and Stardust fight outside, but can’t get back in the ring before the 10 count.
Winners – Dusts (7:38)
Goldust – Hold on, no, we’re not doing that like that! This was our one opportunity for those titles and you get counted out on purpose? Just to save those things? How about this, I want a rematch, and I want it now!
The Dusts attack the Usos together. Jey is down on the mat. They send Jimmy from the ring by announce, then they go after Jey’ ‘injured’ knee. They wrap Jey’ knee around the post. Jey is left screaming in pain as Goldust is on his knees, his brother straddling him.
Rollins – We gotta do something about Roman Reigns.
Kane – You’re right.
Rollins – He keeps sticking his nose in our business, and too stupid to understand that what we did to Ambrose will happen to him.
Kane – There’s the answer. Tonight Roman Reigns will compete in a match against Seth Rollins and me.
Rollins – Hohohoho! Handicap Match! Handicap Match! How poetic.
Kane – Just like Dean Ambrose, our business with Roman Reigns ends tonight.
Cole talks even more about the WWE WHC at SummerSlam. Hours after the match they caught up with Brock Lesnar for his comments.
Recap of Brock Lesnar winning.
Brock – It’s the greatest thing I’ve accomplished. I came back to the WWE to conquer the WWE ‘Universe’ and become WWE WHC.
More video from the match.
Brock – I hit Cena with an F5 off the bat. I gave him a chance to stay down. That’s all he had to do. But instead, this no give up bullshit had to take over, and quite frankly, I don’t think it did him any favors. In my mind, I was inflicting the right amount of pain that I wanted to inflict on Cena.
Heyman – The only reason Cena survived the beating he took at SummerSlam, because Brock Lesnar took pity on Cena and decided to end the fight.
The video goes to Trip saying Cena has decided to use his rematch clause.
Heyman – And now, talking about humiliation, my client is humiliated by the fact that Cena would invoke this rematch clause. How dare you sir. Are you out of your mind? Do you understand the unrepentant beast that sits before you now? This was a huge mistake. I’m a fan of your Cena, but this was a bad mistake.
Brock – I don’t know if your dad sat on the edge of your bed when you were just a little boy and filled your ear full of all kinds of garbage. Little Johnny someday you’re going to grow up and become a man. But someday you’re going to run into a guy that is going to knock your ass down, and you’re going to stand up, and he’s going to knock your ass down, and you’re going to stand up, and he’d going to knock your ass down, and then he’s not going to let you up! You’re not going to get up John Cena. It’s over my friend. I don’t feel bad for you, because for the last 12 years, that’s what you’ve been living on. Then Brock Lesnar shows up. John Cena. Mark my words, NoC, is going to be your last night in this universe. Game over. Almost brings a tear to my eye.
In Ring Segment
Ziggler to the ring in sliver trunks, wearing the IC strap backward on the stage, then turns it around to head to the ring.
Ziggler vs Miz (Damien Mizdow)
Ziggler in the ring waiting. Miz to the ring.
Miz – Thank you, thank you. This morning I went to Disney Land, but unlike the rest of you, I didn’t have to wait in line, I was whisked to the front. Mickey even asked me to take a picture with him. This is just one of the perks you get when you’re a Hollywood movie star. The other, having my own stunt double. So ladies and gentlemen, the man playing the role of Miz in this match, a man, I admire his level of commitment in all of his roles, my stunt double, Damien Mizdown!
Sandow comes out wearing that horrid white coat that Miz has been wearing lately. Cole says the IC Championship debuted 35 years ago today. (Wikipedia says Pat Patterson won the IC for the first time on September 1, 1979. So what Cole said isn’t exactly right, but it could have been debuted before that, then Patterson won it after? Semantics?) Miz to announce as JBL and Cole argue about dates and when Patterson won the IC Title.
Sandow wearing all black ring gear, and needs to remove his shades. Sandow taken down for two.
Sandow all over Ziggler, stomping him on the mat. Lovely snap suplex on Ziggler. Blows on Sandow on the mat. Head butt to Ziggler, but he comes back with a jaw breaker.

WWE Slam of the Week
Nikki turning on Brie at SummerSlam.
In Ring Segment
King – I think I speak for everyone when I say one of the most shocking moment at SummerSlam was Nikki turning on Brie and costing her the match against Steph. I could have said it was in the heat of the moment, until this happened on Raw.
Video of Nikki talking smack about Brie. Brie tried to make things right, but Nikki is all out heel.
King – Hopefully this can be the first step in getting the Bellas back together. Please welcome Nikki Bella.
Nikki bounces out in a black bandage dress and platform stiletto Louboutin.
King – Nikki, listening to the audience, they’re not as forgiving as Brie. That being said, lets welcome Brie Bella.
Brie out in Brie Mode t-shirt, black leather skirt, red and black flannel tied around her waist, and black stiletto booties.
Nikki – Wow, you couldn’t even get your own entrance music.
Brie – Nikki you can have the stupid music if you want.
Nikki – I deserve the music, I mean, maybe get your own.
King – This isn’t about entrance music.
Brie – No, it’s not. It’s about the person I trusted most in this world back stabbing me. Jerry, I love my friends, I love my husband, but Nikki and I have been together since before we were born. When my Mom was pregnant, she saw ultrasounds of Nikki and I holding hands in the womb. Nikki, I know your feelings are hurt, I know you feel I abandoned you. I left for my husband, I didn’t know you’d be mistreated by that witch Steph McMahon. I, but if that’s what you feel, I’m sorry, from the bottom of my heart, I’m sorry. Forget all this, forget Total Divas, this is Brianna speaking. Please, I’m sorry.
Nikki – Brie, I don’t know what to say except, except, that’s the biggest load of crap I ever heard. I mean, I get it, I’m the selfish, materialistic one, and you’re the innocent beautiful woman tat just wants her family back together. Is that the story you’re trying to tell these people? Maybe they’re all stupid enough to believe it, but not me. Oh, no, because I know the real you. You’ve always wanted the spotlight, and always wanted to be loved more. Admit it.
Brie – I always did! This is insane, this was never about me!
Nikki – Oh, admit it Brie, it was always about you! Stop acting like such an angel, it’s such an act. Maybe we weren’t holding hands in that ultrasound. Maybe you were doing what you always do, holding me back! I’m just so done! I’m just so done! I’m so done with you! I’m so done with our family always treating me like an afterthought. I’m so done with all these guys in the audience with this fantasy about twins that you’re all too fat and ugly to have! And most of all, and most of all, I’m so over your scraggly hair, your save the earth crap, your log cabin house, and oh god, I’m so over your troll-faced husband!
Brie (off mic) – You are horrible.
Nikki – You! I’m so done playing second fiddle to a sister who never gave a damn about me!
Brie – Yes, I do!
Nikki – Oh, right, Mrs. Daniel Bryan, everyone’s favorite Bella Twin. Let me tell you about the real Brie Bella, the one who stole all my boyfriends when we were young!
Brie – I did not!
Nikki – The Brie Bella that always got in trouble and always pointed the finger at me because she was the good twin, and I was the bad twin!
Brie – You’re lying!
Nikki – Brie, you know what I’m not lying about? When you quit, you abandoned me!
Brie – No!
Nikki – Yes! I was put in 3-1 and 4-1 Handicap Matches! Every week I was forced to do something demeaning and you sat home watching it all on TV. You cared more about trending on Twitter than me!
Brie – Give me a break Nikki!
Nikki – Give you a break? You know what? You are one sad excuse of a sister.
Brie – Stop!
Nikki – You are one sad excuse for a human being!
Brie – Stop it! Stop it Nikki. I don’t know you…
Nikki – Oh, is Brie going to cry? Is the good Bella twin going to cry? Hey, everyone, look at the real Brie Mode! A pathetic, hot mess.
King – Nikki, that’s enough.
Nikki – Stay out of it, old man! Get out! Get out!
King leaves the ring.
Nikki – As far as I’m concerned, I have no sister! (Nikki grabs Brie’s hair and pulls her face close.) I wish you died in the womb!
Nikki lets go, drops her mic, looks about to leave, then turns and knocks Brie, chair and all, over backward. Off comes the Louboutins, one of which is thrown at Brie, then she’s all over her sister on the mat. King in and grabs Nikki around the waist and pulls her off Brie, though she took some extensions with her. Nikki turns on King and bitch slaps him. Nikki all over Brie, ripping at her hair, slamming her around on the mat. Finally King and refs pull Nikki off. The whole time Nikki is yelling that she doesn’t have a sister and that Brie is dead to her. Nikki from the ring, straightens herself, and walks out without looking back. Brie is in hysterics on the mat as her twin leaves her.

Rollins on the ramp hugging his case and yelling smack at Reigns that he created Reigns and will destroy him. Reigns yelled back at him.
King has a piece of the block in front of him. The camera is on announce and King doesn’t look right. He looks like he sweating more than he should be, and really off compared to how he normally looks. He argues with JBL as normal, but really looks drawn and not right.
They go on to talking about the WWE Network for $9.99!
Bray – John Cena. I’ve said it before, I believe you are a shell of a man that never really existed at all. Hahaha! And now, after your recent run in with The Beast, I believe your shell is cracked. Hahaha! Now you’re running around like a wounded animal, stumbling through the woods. What type of man would I be if I continued to let you suffer. If I continued to let you spread your disease across the world, naw John. I’m a man of mercy, and by my hand, I will put you down. No worried here John, because it’s so much nicer on the other side. Hahaha! Run!
