Recap of Bryan beating Orton for the WWE Title, but then losing the Title the next night on RAW because Trip stripped him of the belt because the count was fast and tainted. After the belt was taken, Orton beat Bryan down. In the main event Bryan faced Reigns, but then beaten down by The Shield until the ten Superstars ran to Bryan's side in the ring.

In Ring Segment

The ten Superstars are lined up on the stage, waiting. Trip and Steph are announced and come out. There's a mic in a stand at the top of the ramp. Steph in a blue dress, black blazer, and black knee high boots (the dress and jacket really clash), Trip in his power suit, pink shirt, and silver tie. The Shield across the bottom of the ramp.

Steph and Trip talk up Chicago, and then go on to the ten on the stage holding up Bryan chanting "YES!" "YES!" "YES!" They have seen the social media about if they will be punished, fired.

Trip - We've asked you here to say one thing.

Pregnant pause.

Steph – Thank you! Thank you for taking matters in your own hands. Thank you for stepping up to the plate. Thank you for finally being men.

Trip – Thank you for finally stepping up. I know it had nothing to do with Bryan in this ring.

RVD – The fact is, and I think I speak for everyone up here, we were fighting for Bryan. You screwed him over, would do the same for us. We were only doing what was right.

RVD! RVD!
Trip – I find it hard to believe you were fighting for Bryan. I never saw Superstars fighting for a WWE Champion, I always thought the Superstars fought to be a WWE Champion. Ziggler is that how you feel. You were fighting for Bryan who's had opportunity after opportunity as WWE Champion that he's squandered. Not fighting for you? You're saying Bryan should get another opportunity at Battleground, possibly the opportunity that Ziggler should have had?

Steph – Or R-Truth. When was the last time you had a Championship match? I can't remember. Why shouldn't you be The face of the WWE? Or you Ryder, you should be The face of the WWE. There's one reason you collectively you don't have it right now and it's because of...

Trip – The Shield. I understand your frustration as The Shield has run roughshod over this place since they came in the door. They have collectively beaten down each and every one of you. I can sense that frustration among all of you. It has nothing to do with Bryan. Last week's show of unity had to do with The Shield. I'm going to give you an opportunity to take that out tonight. I'm going to give everyone of you, Darren Young, Titus O'Neil, Usos, RVD, Ziggler, Kofi, Ryder, R-Truth, Gabriel. All of you are going to get to take that frustration out tonight when you face them in a Handicap Elimination Match against The Shield. And I'm going to give you a partner, hopefully a partner that will hopefully work for you as much as you work for him. A guy who feels he should get another shot at Battleground, someone who thinks he should be Champ. Your partner will be Bryan.

Steph – The first ever 11 on 3 Handicap Match, but that's not all, we wanted to say thank you to those men on that stage, but also the WWE 'Universe', so here's what we're going to do tonight. You get the chance to decide who will face Orton tonight. Will it be R-Truth? Dolph Ziggler? Or RVD? All you have to do is download the App, because we believe in doing what's best for all of you.

Trip – Because what's best for all of you is what's what's best for business.

The Shield looks shocked and confused as they discuss their spot tonight.

Commercial

Miz TV

Miz to the ring, looking pissed, holding his left arm strangely close to his body. Video of the way Orton destroyed Miz in front of his folks last week.

Miz – Normally I'd come out here with a smile on my face and welcome you to the show, but I'm banged up and pissed off. Last week I was humiliated in front of my friend, family, my mother. Orton, be known that knocking me down is easier than keeping down. Orton, payback will come and it will be awesome. I wasn't the only one seeking medical attention last week. Per Steph McMahon, a most beloved HOFer was knocked out by my guest, Big Show.

Big Show to the ring. Video of Big Show knocking Dusty out last week on RAW.

Miz – Show, I've known you for nearly a decade, we've been TTCs and competitors, and respect you as a man, but how did you do that to Dusty Rhodes? A man who was a father figure to you, a mentor to you. How could you do that? I get that you have personal issues and that Steph and Trip are taking advantage of you. If you hadn't then The Shield would have beaten Dusty down. They're trying to break you because you're the largest guy in the locker room. If they can break you, they can break anyone, that's what they think. The Superstars are stepping up, and it's time for you to step up. Stop letting that castrating witch demeanor demoralize you, and step up! Stand up and look her in the eye, and...

Steph's music hits and she comes to the ring with a slight smirk on her face, very slight. Steph motions for Big Show's mic.

Steph – I'm going to let most of that slide as you like to shake things up on Miz TV, but there's no reason to berate Big Show. Your line of questioning is disrespectful, and Trip and I think it's borderline slander.

Miz – You're going to make veiled legal threats? You can take your legal threats and shove them straight up your ass.

Steph – Whoa, Miz. Very original. Let me say that the reason you're doing this right now is you're living on your own culdisac of disappointment. Considering the beating you took at the hands of Orton last week was humiliating. You know you're not a major player Miz, and there's nothing worse than a Superstar who peaks too early. You do have value. You're what we call a utility player. When there's a radio show early in the morning, call Miz. When there's a media event in some far off corner of the world, we call... When there's a supermarket opening, Miz, you're our guy. It's not like you had chances. The stakes couldn't have been higher in your home town. I watched the look in your mom's eye go from hope to disappointment. You failed her. You failed your family and friends. You failed yourself. Orton dismembered you in this ring, and you couldn't measure up. You never learn your lesson because here you are. Sorry to have to do this to you Miz, Big Show, knock him out.

Big Show immediately turns Miz and punches him out, then leaves the ring. Steph stands over Miz, then closes his jacket over his motionless body. Video recap of the punch. Steph is leaving the stage and the doctors are checking on Miz.

AJ – Thank you, I want to talk about this ridiculous match against the Bellas. Can't they go on hiatus as well. I think my tag partners might turn on me, pretty sure they hate me. This is no way to be treating your Divas Champion.
Steph – Oh. (As Steph steps right up in AJ's face.)
AJ – Boss Lady, you're all up in my personal space.
Steph – AJ, this company is my personal space. You will be in the 10 Divas Tag Match, or maybe you won't be Divas Champ much longer.

WWE Rewind

Recap of Heyman defeating Punk with the help of Ryback.

In Ring Segment

Punk's music and the arena goes wild! Punk out in a Blackhawks jersey #2 Kieth, proudly stands on the stage taking it all in, before heading to the ring. He says, damn, off mic at their reaction to him coming out to the ring. Cole says Punk will face Ryback at Battleground. The fans keep going well after the music ends. Punk just keeps sucking it in.

Punk – You ruined a perfectly good bad mood, you know that. I haven't smiled in 8 days, but came out here and can't help myself. The person I'm looking at knows how hard I tried to get the cup here tonight, and tried real hard, but I feel that because I didn't produce the cup, I let people down. Not smiling because I let people down. In Detroit I let people down.

"CM Punk!"

Punk – That's a chant for another time. I let you down. It's going to say that Heyman pinned Punk, and that bums me out. I don't know if I can do this anymore. Maybe I don't deserve to wear this sweater, or perform in front of the best wrestling crowd in the world. I let everyone down so bad that I don't deserve to say I'm from Chicago. But then I come out here to one hell of an ovation, and I put this sweater on and wear it in pride. I remember being down 3 games to one to a very tough Red Wings team. Blackhawks didn't put their heads down, didn't feel like they let everyone down, and came back to tie it, then a game 7, then game 7 overtime! That is the Chicago way. Maybe we lose, sometimes the other city gets the better of us, we get beat up, but we pick ourselves up by our bootstraps, then got to work the next next day. I proud of this team, this sweater, god damn #$%^&*()*&^%$ the people. If I let you down, if I'm down three games, I'm going to come back, tie that somebitch up, and take it to overtime, because that's the Chicago way. I'm here live and in living color. Chicago, I want a fight and I don't care if it's Axel, Ryback, if it's...

Heyman rolls out singing New York, New York to HUGE heat! He introduces himself.

Punk – Wrong place wrong time, and you're about to catch a bigger beating than before, because you're in Chicago, because I have 18,000 people who will bail my ass out of jail after I put my hands on you.

"CM Punk!"

Heyman – I don't need for you to remind me of the beating I took in Detroit. I've been in physical therapy since NoC, and suffered a relapse that has me confined to this contraption because of you. I take solace because I can walk through life saying I beat CM Punk. I don't want you to feel sorry for yourself about it, you shouldn't. It's not your fault, it's geography, you're from Chicago, the 2nd city. 2Nd place team, 2nd place parents which you were born to, and 2nd best in the world. People of the jury, exhibit A. (A still of Heyman draped over Punk.)

"Walrus!"

Heyman – I may be a walrus, but I pinned the biggest shark in the city of Chicago.

Punk – Paul, I'm not stupid, I know how this ends, but you should know... (to a fan who yells at Punk) Oh, I'm going to go get him. (back to Heyman) But I thought you should know, when I jump out of this ring and make a move to you, can your two goons get to me faster than I can get to you. You have to ask that. All I need is two seconds. I'm no longer going to break your face, I'm going to rip your face off.

Heyman – You know, if you do make a move, I want you to keep in mind, I not only beat you, but with both hands tied behind my back. With that I bid you all a fair ado.

Heyman tries to back his jazzy up the ramp, but it's dead! Punk rushes Heyman, but Ryback and Axel attack from each side. They taunt pnkas Heyman cowers. Punk fights back, gets rid of Ryback off the ramp, but Axel gets control, beating Punk down. Axel sets Punk up, but it's Axel who hits the back of the stage. Punk turns, then dives off the stage, getting great air, before landing on Ryback. Punk all over Ryback, then into part of the back of the stage and breaks a chunk out. Axel from behind, but he's taken down. Ryback from behind rips at the jersey, then sends Punk into the same spot, breaking out another chunk. Off comes the jersey and Punk into an anvil case. Ryback raises Punk high in the air, struggles, then drops him through a table.

Heyman to his feet, walks to the side of the stage, jumps off, and brings his mic to Ryback.

Ryback – This is what happens to bullies, hahaha.

"Goldberg!"

Axel, Ryback and Heyman regroup by the ramp.

"CM Punk!"

Backstage Segment

Ambrose – Did Trip and the lovely Steph throw us to the wolves tonight, or are we the hounds that hunt the wolves, hunt them down and eat them alive. Did this match come about because we've been beating them all down? Doesn't matter what their beefs are, it's what's best for business. Are backs are kind of up against the wall? Refresh me of what happens when our backs are against the wall!

Rollins – Oh, I don't know! We just revolutionize the business, change the game from inside out, make everyone take notice.

Ambrose – Most of all we win! We're winners! We're studs and tonight we're going to do out jobs, simple as that.

Reigns – Believe in... (camera pans to their belts)

Slice of WWE Action

Bryan beat Orton at NoC, but then lost the strap on RAW when Scott sold Bryan out.

In Ring Segment

Bryan out to huge "YES!" "YES!" "YES!" chants with him. "Daniel Bryan!" chants stop Bryan from talking when he was going to. He's all smiles.
Bryan – You guys are awesome. But I have something to talk about. Last week I was stripped of the WWE Championship because I was accused of conspiring with Scott Armstrong. Like I'd say to Scotty, could you, if I could conceivably win, could you use a fast count? I'm not the smartest man, but you don't need to fast count when a man is knocked out. If you want to talk conspiracies, what about Orton and Trip. And after firing Scott, Trip gave him such a reasonable deal. A lot of money, that's weird. I don't know what happened at NoC, but what's done is done. It doesn't matter what version of Orton shows up, it doesn't change the outcome, that I take back what's mine, the WWE Championship! No fast counts, no guest refs, no excuses. I'm sick of Orton hiding behind his boss's skirts, because there will be no hiding, because the next day when Orton wakes up from the beating that this B+ goat faced troll gives him, when all their fans to screw me over have failed, he'll hear one word over and over in the back of his brain, and it's going to be the word that the arena will be chanting after I win, "YES!" "YES!" "YES!"

The Shield's music hits, and out they come. Just after they come over the barricade The Shield is attacked by two men in black. The hood comes down to show one is painted in gold and black. Security all over him, and what ends up to be his brother Cody! The Shield is shaken as it takes three members of security to remove each of the brothers from the ringside area!
