RIP Rowdy Roddy Piper
They start with a pic of Piper on the screen, then to the stage where most all Superstars are in Hot Rod shirts. They toll the bell ten times for Piper. Everyone is on their feet and solemn, McMahon looks to be in tears. Bagpipe music plays after the
An empty chair with Roddy's name on the back, a kilt hanging from it. They go to pics of him growing up from being a baby, to video of him in the WWF, WCW, Piper's Pit, and all he's done for us fans. It was beautiful! Everyone on their feet chanting for Rowdy!
Music & Pyro
In Ring Segment
Rollins to the ring to HUGE heat, wearing a shirt that says, "Never shuts up" Cole announces them on announce. He discusses Rollins losing to Cena, but also how Cena's nose was shattered during the match. Video of the knee and the nose. Still serious heat for Rollins, but also some chants thanking him for taking out Cena, as he waits with a mic, laughing at them.
Rollins – There is only one person in WWE that can slow me down, and that person is named Seth Rollins! (HEAT) In all seriousness, I've noticed a problem plaguing me, sympathy. I'm too sympathetic for my own good. Might be too hard to believe, but look at last week when I drove my knee into Cena's nose. A picture is worth a thousand words, and this video is priceless.
Video of the nose breaking, even in slo-mo.
"Thank you Rollins!" chants for breaking Cena's nose! Rollins is all smiles at the harsh fans.
Rollins – Guys it was disgusting. I felt Cena's nose crack on my knee. (POP) I heard the pop when it shattered. (POP) At first I didn't feel bad, that sort of thing happens, in the WWE ring. Cena's face isn't the first I smashed, and it won't be the last, but it's the first time I've broken the face of the man who runs the place. But then, look, mothers shield your eyes, this is gruesome, Cena rolled over and I saw this looking back at me.
Black and white backstage still of Cena's face, his nose pushed way to the right, not where it should be. Then another face on.
Rollins – Who wouldn't feel sympathy for a face like that? Ugh! I knew we had to stop the match and award me the US Championship, we had to, there was no choice. Cena wanted to finish the fight, and the ref isn't the humanitarian that I am, and in my sympathetic stupor I got caught, and that's on me, but I guarantee you it will never, ever happen again. So I've got a proposition for you John Cena. I know you're sitting at home in bed, nursing your wounds, looking like the cross between a raccoon and a Picasso painting, but what do you say we do it one more time? John Cena versus Seth Rollins, Title for Title, winner take all at the four hour extravaganza live on the WWE Network, SummerSlam? If you don't have the grapefruits to show up at SummerSlam, maybe you're not as tough as you think you are, then you can forfeit your US Championship to me. Either I can beat ya, or you won't show up, but for the first time ever, someone will hold both the US and WWE WHC at the same time! (virtually no reaction) I digress. As for tonight, San Jose is the place to be! I mean, not because of you guys, but because of me. (heat) The Champ is in the house. Let's not forget that this is where I won the WWE WHC at WrestleMania. And, and, this is the site of John Cena's first US Open Challenge, which gives me an idea, because clearly anything John can do, I can do better. So, tonight, for the first time ever, we are going to have a WWE WHC Open Challenge. It will start about, right now. So, if you want some, come get some! Who's it going to be, because the Champ is here!
Rollins throws down the mic and smiles wide.
In Ring Segment
JoJo is in the ring with Rollins.
JoJo – Is this Open Challenge legitimate?
Rollins – Do you doubt me JoJo? Of course this is legitimate, what are you talking about? I got verification from The Authority that I could do this, with two caveats. First being that my opponent has to be under six feet tall. I don't make the rules. The second that they have to be under 200lbs.
JoJo – So, basically you're talking about a match against El Torito.
Rollins – You catch on pretty quick, and that's no bull. El Torito, this is a chance of a lifetime, come out and challenge me for the WWE WHC!
His music hits, then stops. Then it's Neville's music! Out comes Neville to the ring, pointing at Rollins. He fits the bill!

Naomi – So why don't you get your facts straight and stop asking dumb questions. It's time for Team BAD to make another statement, so I'm going to challenge Paige to a match tonight. You know what else has really been working my nerves. Everyone talking about Ronda Rousey. Truth is, we the baddest women on the planet, period.

JoJo doesn't have any. Banks and Naomi leave. Tamina stares JoJo down, then leaves. JoJo, is very quiet, but can be heard on the mic after they all leave.
JoJo – Thank you.
Miz – Welcome to the 2nd most must see TV show in WWE, and I say second, as there would be no Cutting Edge, there would be no Highlight Reel, no Body Shop, no Barber Shop, no Snake Pit, no Heartbreak Hotel, and there would be no Miz TV if not for the originator of them all, Piper's Pit! (POP) From the bottom of my heart Roddy, you will be missed!
Miz – Welcome to Miz TV! You know, there's a saying that's about me in Hollywood right now. On fire! Because I am on fire right now. I'm a WWE Superstars, judge of Tough Enough, host of Miz TV, star of the upcoming movie, Santa's Little Helper, coming out this Christmas and DVD and Blu Ray soon. And once Ryback stops "nursing an injury" (Miz' air quotes), I'll be the new IC Champion. You know, Ryback, why don't you do the noble thing, like Bryan did, and vacate the title if you can't fight for it. It should go to me! But, as hot as I am right now, my two guests are as hot as I am, welcome my first guest, Kevin Owens.
Owens to the ring.
Miz – Welcome, they say you haven't made it in the WWE until you're on Miz TV, congratulations!
Owens – Thank you. I've actually heard that, so it's a great honor to be here. And, believe it of not, I've always been a huge fan of yours. In fact, I own all of your movies on Blu Ray.
Miz – Everyone here owns my movies, I'm a great actor. The issue between you and Cesaro has been getting out of hand. Why do you think Cesaro has such a problem with you?
Owens – Well, I think it's simple. Cesaro is jealous of me. Because, the fact is, I've accomplished a lot in the past three months.
Miz – Absolutely, no question about that.
They are cut off by Cesaro's music, and he comes out in a dark blue suit, lighter blue shirt open a few buttons down, sans tie, looking very continental.
Miz – Cesaro, you usually wait until I introduce you, but never mind that! Please welcome my second guest, the Swiss Superman, Cesaro!
"Cesaro!" chants. There's a least a couple hundred 8X10 sheets of paper being held up by fans, all saying, "Cesaro section" on them. They are all over the audience on the floor, and up into the stands. From the front row, as far as can be seen.
Miz – Cesaro, you didn't come here to pick a fight, did you.
Cesaro – Of course not Miz, I'm out here to have a front row seat to what Walk, Owens, Walk has to say.
Owens – Oh, that's so cute.
Miz – You were saying why Cesaro is jealous of you?
Owens ��� Before I was so rudely interrupted, why are you jealous of me? I've succeeded where you've failed. Not beating Cena, you never did that, but all the years of sacrifices you made. All the weddings, birthdays, and holidays you've missed. Those were all for nothing, no matter how hard you work, how dedicated you are, you will never be as good as I am, you will never match my god given natural ability in this business.
Miz - Ohhhh! Cesaro, your response.
Cesaro – Kevin, let's get one thing straight, I'm not jealous of you, if anything, I'm ashamed of you. I'm ashamed because every time you walk away from a match, you don't just disrespect yourself, you disrespect your opponent, the WWE Universe, and every Superstars who has ever stepped foot in this ring. Kevin, quite frankly, you're an embarrassment. (looking pissed)
Owens to his feet, but the chair is caught on the bottom of his short. Owens and Miz have to knock the chair back, and it falls to the mat.
Cesaro – Careful, that chair is stuck to you. (Cesaro all smiles)
Owens – I'm an embarrassment? You think that's funny? You know what I think is funny? I've accomplished more in three months here than you've accomplished in three years.
Cesaro – Really Kevin, why don't you back that up, this might be Miz TV, but this is still a WWE ring, and you might be really good at talking, and walking, but I'm really good at fighting. So, if you want to go, let's go.
Cesaro to his feet, off comes his jacket, and Miz looks excited by all of this, most likely as he's not the one getting threatened, or hit. Miz stands with a smile.
Miz – Yeah, this is what Miz TV is all about!
Both Cesaro and Owens turn to Miz and yell at him.
Together - Shut up!
Miz lands back in his seat, hard, looking a bit nervous that he might be hit if he doesn't. Miz then gets up and backs away.
Owens – Why don't you let the two guys who can actually fight take care of this, how about that buddy? You know what, I'll fight you (Cesaro), I'll fight anybody, anywhere, ah, for the right price, and, ah, tonight is not it.
Owens drops his mic and starts to leave.
Cesaro – Why don't you do what you do best, and Walk, Owens, Walk.
Owens halfway from the ring as the "Walk, Owens, Walk" chants get loud.
Miz – No, no, no, not Walk, Owens, Walk, Cesaro, you need to go do something...
Owens back in behind Miz, and pushes Miz into Cesaro, and both hit the mat. Owens on Cesaro, but reversed. Owens gets free and flees the ring, walking away. Off comes Cesaro's shirt, he's ready to fight! Owens with a smile leaves up the ramp as Cesaro tosses things up the ramp at Owens. Owens yells smack from the stage.

Wyatt – A flower has always been such a symbol of beauty. Remove all its petals, and what was once precious, is now just another troublesome weed. Hahaha. Just like that, it's gone. Roman, you have become their symbol of beauty, strength. They chose you. They decorate you. Take all that away, and you'll realize that you're no different than anybody else.
Harper – Ambrose, we warned you boy, we did. Justlike all the rest, you chose wrong.
Sheamus – And Orton, I'm gonna make this quick and painful as I drive this brogue kick straight through your face. Outta nowhere.
Wyatt – I've always admired your penitent for brutality, Sheamus. You know what they say, the enemy of mine enemy is mine friend. Tonight, Sheamus, I guess you could consider us your friends. Run!
Ryder vs Barrett
Ryder to the ring. Barrett out to face him.
Barrett – Can I have some decorum please, as your one true KoTR, it's my duty to remove all pretenders to my throne. Zack Ryder, you may be the King of the Internet, but without a crown, you're just the same as these peasants in this arena. You're worth less than the filth on my boots, so let's see everybody can do something right for once in their lives, and repeat after me, all hail King Barrett! (heat)

In Ring Segment
Heyman – Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and before I subject you to The Beast, I want to remind you it was Taker who picked this fight.
Stills from Battleground, then GONG! Taker returned, destroyed Brock with two tombstones.
Heyman – I know you saw the same thing I saw. That was not the same Taker that has laid destruction to everyone in his path for the past 25 years. No, that was an angry, vengeful, vindictive Taker who kicked my client in the groin. Why? Because confronted with the fact that he hasn't beaten my client, WWE's angry alpha dog becomes a submissive little bitch when he comes up against The Beast Incarnate. To whit I offer you this piece of evidence.
Video of the never ending fight between Taker and Brock two weeks ago.
Heyman – Ladies and gentlemen, Taker will never rest in peace, because he cannot live with himself knowing that he cannot, and will not ever beat my client, the one, in what's now 22-1. The Conqueror of Taker's Streak at WrestleMania, my client, Brock Lesnar!
Brock's music, and out he comes to the ring. Brock around the ring, glares at the announcers, Cole on his feet, intimidating them, then around to the ramp side, then dances on the balls of his feet by the apron. Cole says he thought they were going to see a repeat. Rather than jumping up on the apron, Brock grabs the top of the stairs, tossing them into the ring. Obviously this was planned as Heyman is on the opposite apron himself. Then over to the corner and into the ring. Brock flips the stairs to upright. "Suplex City" chants. Brock smirks, then gets up on the stairs in the center of the ring.
Heyman – The last time the WWE sanctioned a match between Brock Lesnar and Taker, Taker left WrestleMania 30 in an ambulance, spent a week in the hospital, took a year to recover. If you really want to know what happens behind the curtain, want the inside dirt on World Wrestling Entertainment, here's one they can't deny. Taker called McMahon and begged him for a rematch at this year's WrestleMania, and Taker begs for nothing. McMahon turned down Taker, because even in his dark heart of hearts knows what will happen next time Brock Lesnar fights Taker. So what did Taker do? At Battleground Taker forced WWE's hands by picking a fight with Brock Lesnar. Costing my client the right to be the WWE WHC. Taker gave WWE no option but to sanction this fight, because this fight will not be in a parking lot, a church, hell itself. So, August 23rd, Barclay Center, Brooklyn, NY, SummerSlam 2015, for one time ever, it's the match too big for WrestleMania. It's not a rematch of the ages, it's not a rematch of the week, it's not a rematch of the year, not a rematch of the century, the decade, the millennium, it's THE rematch then, now, forever! Why, on August 23rd, my client will stamp the repeat in eat, sleep, conquer, repeat. Taker, I absolutely, positively, one hundred percent guarantee that you, Sir, are going to Suplex City! It boils down to this. Last time Taker, you needed an ambulance. Last time you needed a hospital, you needed a year to recover. This time you will need last rights over your career, (speaking Latin). You, Taker have met your match. You are going to Suplex City at the hands of my Beast, your Conqueror, Brock Lesnar!
Brock Lesnar gets down off the stairs all bright red, even a bit purple, but all laughing and smiles. A handshake/hug with Heyman, then Brock leaves the ring, following Heyman up the ramp and out.
Pics of Cena's nose last week on Raw. Big questions about Cena at SummerSlam, and will Rollins get away with both Championships?

Banks distracts on the apron. Naomi drops back, feet on Paige's back, but rather than landing well, Paige is send spinning off to the side and lands under the ropes, not really moving, having her team mates checking on her.

Eden – Stardust...
Stardust – Wooooo, hahaha. One more time. One more time! That's what the WWE Universe was chanting at The Man Gravity Forgot, Neville! He pandered, meandered, and then he, what rhymes with meandered? He lost! Neville, if you're not going to be my hero, who will? Hahaha!
The announcers talk about the Twitter war between Stardust and Stephen Amell, who said on Twitter that he'd see Stardust next week on Raw.
RIP Rowdy Roddy Piper

Orton – Whatever you boys want to do tonight, that's fine. Just, leave Sheamus to me.
Ambrose – Finally he has a good attitude!
Reigns – Let's go! It's time to get rowdy.
(I have to mention that Ambrose is wearing a black leather jacket with quilted shoulders, very much like Piper wore much of the time, yet they had found the time to embroider Ambrose's overlaid DA logo onto the front. Impressed with the time and effort put in for/by the man who I never noticed looks and acts a lot like Piper himself. Further, all three of these guys wore their Hot Rod shirts in this segment.)
