Reported on by Kendra Bunyon For Wrestling News World
Team Cena and Team Authority will be in the ring signing contracts tonight. Who will be in power after Survivor Series?
Recap of Ryback turning on Team Authority last week in the main event of Raw.
In Ring Segment
Trip's music. He comes out, leading Steph in a V-neck red dress and black heeled booties. The rest of Team Authority follow suit, including the Stooges.
Trip – Three weeks ago McMahon came to this ring and added a stip between Team Authority and Team Cena at Survivor Series. If The Authority lost, they would be out of power. ("What?") No more Raw, no more Smackdown, no more The Authority, no more power, period. You'd like that, wouldn't you? (Yes) You'd like to see us as regular employees, like all of you?
"YES!" "YES!" "YES!"
Steph – Good, remember this feeling, because how does it feel to want? (heat)
Trip – You have no idea what you wish for. You're sheep. You need to be led. You can't even see that when it's right in front of you. Isn't it ironic that when Mr. McMahon comes to the ring he's a hero. They cheer him. They worship him. Yet, years ago when he ruled WWE with an iron fist, he was the Evil Mr. McMahon! Now that's our role. As The Authority rules the WWE, we're seen as the evil empire. You cannot see what we do for you. You're just sheep. ("What?") You'd rather have the inmates run the asylum, right? Like Cena and Ziggler? The last place I recall the inmates ran the asylum was WCW. You remember them? We picked them up at the auction, after the inmates ran the asylum. We cannot and will not let that happen. It all comes down to one match. At Survivor Series. Team Authority, the most dominant and destructively lethal team assembled. Captained by the future, and Standard Bearer of the WWE, Seth Rollins. (heat) Will square of with Team Cena, a group of self-righteous malcontents led by the golden boy of malcontents, John Cena. If we win, the WWE thrives and you all benefit. If we lose, let's say we can't lose. I'm glad the WWE Network is free, free for all of you to witness the greatest victory The Authority, and I personally, will ever had. As The Authority wins and the WWE goes on and on under our leadership. (heat)
Steph – But that's this Sunday, what about tonight? (pop) Tonight, in spite of our attempts to get Team Cena on the right page, to see what's what's best for business, they continue to side with their captain, John Cena. (pop) Therefore, leaving us no other choice of how to deal with business tonight.
Trip – That's right, we have no other choice, tonight Team Cena will be decimated, either figuratively, or literally, and at the end of the night, we will have the biggest contract signing in the history of the WWE. We will see who is left, and who has the guts to sign their names next to Cena's?
Steph – But we know who will be signing on behalf of Team Authority, the man you mentioned. Oh captain, my captain, Seth Rollins! (heat) Then we have the world's strongest man, Mark Henry. We have the most twisted and sadistic monster the WWE has ever seen, Kane! We have the new US Champion, Rusev! Did I say that right Lana. And the man who personally delivered a decimated Dolph Ziggler to our feet last week, Luke Harper.
Harper (leaning down to Steph's mic) – I'm a team player.
Steph – Yes Luke, you are a team player, and we're proud to have you on our team. We are proud to have all of you on our complete team, unlike Cena who seems to be down one. Which brings me to Ryback. Last week, I'll admit, we thought we had Ryback locked up as part of Team Authority. Unfortunately things went awry. As a businesswoman, I know negotiations don't always mean expectations, personal feeling can get in the way, but the important thing to know, Team Authority isn't going anywhere. The important thing for everyone to know, with Ryback thinking...
"Feed me more!" Out comes Ryback to big pop to the stage. HUGE "Feed me more!" chants and he's all smiles.
Ryback – The Authority wants what's what's best for business. John Cena wants what's best for the WWE 'Universe'.
Steph – That's debatable.
Ryback – Ryback wants what's best for Ryback.
Steph – I understand that Ryback, I really do, and respect is a very important word to me as a McMahon and as a member of Team Authority. I'll admit that tensions ran high last week and we all made some decisions we might regret, isn't that right Kane?
Kane – I regret what transpired.
Steph – Kane regrets what transpired. We all regret what transpired, and Ryback, you don't have to believe me, but you need to think about whether you want to join a man, John Cena, who has absolutely no respect for you. John Cena may claim he does, but this footage shows he doesn't.
Video of Cena getting in Ryback's face and ripping him down last year. Cena says Ryback can't be a Champion, and is a whiner. Mocking Ryback whining at Cena.
Steph – The footage doesn't lie. Cena speaks for himself. I don't know why he said it, but I think he's jealous of The Big Guy. I think John Cena loathes you. Is that someone you want to go to battle with? To trust. Do you want the contempt of Team Cena or the respect of Team Authority?
Ryback – I play for the one team I can count on, that's Team Ryback.
Ryback turns and leaves.
Trip – Wise decision, play for Team Ryback. Stay neutral, stay out of the fight. It's a wise decision. For everybody in the fight, the decimation starts now. The newly found Luke Harper, you will stay in this ring and decimate a man who is a suck-up, a showoff, a man who spits in the face of The Authority. Dolph Ziggler your time is up. Your time is now.
Ziggler's music plays, and out he comes.
Harper dumps Ziggler at The Authority's feet, and says he's a team player.
IC Championship Match – Ziggler (c) vs Harper
Mr. MITB is on announce. Lilian announces that she learned during the break that it's an IC Title Match. After Lilian announces this, Ziggler is showing off his strap, but the Stooges attack Ziggler from behind. Harper gets into it all, and Rollins into the ring to hit Ziggler from behind, to the head, with the case. Ziggler is all flopping on the mat, Harper is posing, and Rollins is back on announce with the Stooges behind him. Ziggler uses the ropes to get to his feet, he's fighting through the pain, holding his head, yelling at the ref to start the match. Yelling for the bell. "Let's go Ziggler!"
Big boot to Ziggler for two.

Harper back to looking at the belt as if it's the most beautiful and beloved thing he's ever seen – which it might be.

Kofi's choir video.
Miz – You and I on this project together would be the summer blockbuster of 2015. let me paint a picture. (camera pulls back to show Mizdow doing all Miz is doing, and moving his lips) In a world ripped apart by crime and corruption, two partners opposites attract in a race against time, the only thing in this race against tyranny. So, what do you think?
The camera pans to show that Grumpy Cat isn't at all impressed. Mixed reaction to Grumpy Cat.
Miz – I get it, you want to be taken more seriously. I thought that, I thought I might sweeten your pot. Let me present to you, Grumpy Stunt Cat!
Mizdow is petting a Grumpy Cat stuffy. Grumpy Cat isn't at all impressed.
Miz – You're just like everybody else. You sit there with your smug look, acting all cocky, you don't know what true talent is. The last time Grumpy Cat had a brilliant idea, it ended up in its litter box.
They stomp off. Grumpy Cat doesn't care. Then Miz is back.
Miz – Sorry for losing my cool. I, ah, I'm a big fan. Friended you on Facebook.
Miz kisses Grumpy Cat on the side of her head, then leaves.

Slam of the Week

In Ring Segment
Bray Wyatt to the ring through tons of fireflies. Into the ring, lights out, spotlight in the center of the ring.
Bray – They have lied to us all from the beginning. They tried to convince us that love would make us rich, more than money. Love is the most precious gift to receive. They forgot to mention that everything you love can be ripped away at the drop of a hat. Hahaha. As we all know, a man that has nothing to love, has nothing to lose, is the most dangerous man in this world. Poor Dean Ambrose. Hahaha! For people like Ambrose, every waking day is a pathetic attempt to express himself, to share his love out of obligation, not desire. Ambrose will end up in the same misery day after day. He will always be alone. If Ambrose takes anything away from this, I pray that he doesn't mistake my generosity for something malignant. No, it is true that at first I had to get his attention, by any means necessary. I'm promising you Dean, from the bottom of my heart, right here, right now, today, I come in peace man! Hahaha! I know you still feel the torment you suffer at my hands Dean. That momentary suffering is a gift! I know the pains you have endured in this lifetime. A mother who drown herself in her own misery, rather than taking care of her baby boy. A father who abandoned you, a lifetime of isolation Dean, and I bring them to you so you can see the salvation I can offer. It's all real Dean. It's all my passion Dean, I want you to feel that I can save you Dean. I want you to feel that our souls are intertwined. Embrace us Dean. Embrace us Dean and I will make it all go away.
Ambrose – Hey, is this thing on?
Bray looks shocked toward the stage.
Ambrose – Is this thing on? Bray, you don't need to babble man. You can stop talking. I heard you the first time at HIAC, and the night after, and after. I head you loud and clear on Smackdown. Every long winded, rambling, meandering word that comes out of your mouth, I hear it. It's like nails on a chalkboard, and I don't think I can stand it anymore. I'm trying to see things your way, I really am. Bray Wyatt says he wants to help me, wants to save me, but you're digging up bones from my past, trying to get in my head, certainly not because you think it will give you an edge at Survivor Series. Certainly not because you think I care. Maybe Bray isn't such a bad guy, maybe I can learn something from him. In fact, I learned a little spooky magic trick of my own. I'm going to teach it right now to you bonehead, it's called (spooky voice) video recording! I'm not even hear right now, because I recorded this message on my buddy's cell phone earlier today, and I'm out in the arena right now, Bray Wyatt.
The lights come up in the arena. Bray is looking around. Then Ambrose is there with a Thesz Press on Bray in the ring. Bray tries to flee, but caught. Finally Bray is free and stomping up the ramp. Bray looks pissed. In the ring Ambrose grabs a mic.
Ambrose – As you can see, I don't need any saving! At Survivor Series, Bray Wyatt, you need to worry about saving yourself.
Ambrose points at Bray on stage, Bray looks a bit freaked out, but doesn't flee. Bray glares at Ambrose who stares back.
JBL and Cole talk about Survivor Series and Ambrose needing saving. Cole goes on about how Raw started, then to video of the Stooges attacking Ziggler before his match with Harper, and it all ended with a curb stomp.

Renee approaches Cena watching backstage.
Renee – What's your level of concern with Team Authority campaigning against Team Cena?
Cena – Everyone knows that their power, careers, and future are on the line at Survivor Series, which means, everyone's future is on the line at Survivor Series, especially those bold enough to stand up to The Authority. I see what The Authority is doing, all they can to keep my team from making it to Survivor Series, and it seems there's very little I can do to stop them. The most I can hope for and I see those guys at the contract signing, and Sunday we take The Authority out of power.
Renee – Does this include Ryback?
Cena – Well, Ryback's made it obvious that he's on Team Ryback.
Renee – With that, let's go back to ringside.

(heat) Disgusting. Anyways, all of you know that no American woman can compare to this ravishing figure! My body.
Lana poses and spins to show off her assets.
Lana – I'm the best. So, I have a topless photo of my own to show you. It will leave all you American men drooling. Do you want to see it? (yes, but not as loud as expected) Are you sure? ("YES!") Can you handle is? ("YES!") Do you want to see my very own topless photo? ("YES!") Okay!
On the tron is that picture of topless Putin on a horse.
Lana – And you broken American dreams.
Slater comes out to new music in an awful Uncle Sam outfit, minus beard.

Big Show to the ring.
Big Show vs Sheamus
Steph to the ring.
Steph – Hello Show. I was watching Monday Night War on WWE Network, which my husband mentioned earlier was free for new subscribers (but those of us who have paid up for a year are not getting any discount). What I was watching was your debut, and you were billed as Andre The Giant's son, and it shows that you were always in someone's shadow. You've always wanted to be the guy, the main event that drew the fans in. You think it's up to them, they don't have that power! They don't decide who the main event is! The Authority does! As a result you're conflicted. Do you pander, or resent them? You've flip-flopped over the years, when really all you have to do is listen to your boss. To show you how The Authority can reward you, if you step away from Team Cena, you will be one of the only active competitors conducted into the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame. It's a giant honor for a giant of a man. Think about it Show. Think about it. Don't listen to them!
Big Show says something off mic. Steph talks back, off mic. They talk, she smiles.
Steph – What do you say? Don't listen to them, that's where you've gone wrong before. Listen to those who can actually make a difference.
Big Show (off mic) - I am, I'm listening to these people. Steph, my answer is no.
Sheamus' music hits, and out he comes, talking on his way to the ring.
Sheamus – Excuse me. Sorry Mrs. H, but before you go there, like Big Show there, I'm proud to be part of Team Cena. Just like Sunday, when me and the other members of Team Cena finally drive you out of power. Because this time next week, the only way I'll have to see you, or Triple H, is if both of you buy a ticket.
Steph – Hahaha! You like that one, huh? Thanks for entertaining me, and interrupting me, but, it's interesting, I'm glad you came out here. We had an issue at the office this week. It seems that coming back from the UK, there was an issue with your passport, and it turns out you're not an American citizen, are you. It would be a shame if there were some sort of clerical error, your Visa was no longer valid, and you were deported. And therefore couldn't make it Survivor Series this weekend, that would be a bit problematic, wouldn't it. I'll give you both another reason to consider leaving Team Cena, and that's that the two of you will be in action tonight, against each other. To give a little incentive, the winner of this match will have the opportunity to win the WWE WHC, and this match starts right not. Get a ref out here. Alright, now ring that bell!
Big Show and Sheamus look shocked and not thrilled by it at all.

A forearm to the face, then another, and Sheamus is able to bring Big Show down. High running knee to Big Show, but then Sheamus into a big boot. Sheamus avoids an elbow drops. Sheamus hangs Big Show up top, then climbs. Big Show spears Sheamus in the air, but only gets two for it.

Ryback is in a locker room.
Cena – Big man, I get it. You're your own man, you don't need anybody. The WWE needs you. Have you given any thought at all to joining Team Cena?
Ryback – First of all, it's The Big Guy. Second of all, not only can I not see you, I can't see the team either. Third, I don't take kindly to insults, especially from the likes of John Cena.
Cena – Okay, I saw the footage, and I said those things about you, to your face, and quite frankly, after I said them, you stopped whining, we beat the hell out of each other, and you earned my respect. Listen, man, you are smart enough to know The Authority is manipulating you. If you join Team Cena, they know they're done at Survivor Series, out of power. If they stay, one day you look at Trip wrong in the hall, and he suddenly decides that Ryback is no longer an A+ player. Or you can take a chance. You can take a risk, and you can control your own destiny, man. What do you say?
Ryback – You think I'm stupid, I know what The Authority's trying to do. I've said it once, and I'll say it again, I'm Team Ryback all the way. Thank for stopping by John.
Cena – You know, I don't think you're stupid. I think you're selfish. I think you just got back to the WWE, and I'm asking you to do something bold, and it's amazing, the guy who always wants to be fed more, finally gets to eat at the big table, and suddenly he's not hungry. Sad.
Cena leaves and Ryback glares.
JBL, Cole and Kane talking about Cena looking desperate, while sitting behind a broken table. They go to video of Ambrose turning the tables on Bray earlier on Raw.

Team Cena vs Team Authority, and The Authority will win, because when it comes to the WWE, when it comes to the WWE (choked up) all of you don't get it. You think you have a passion for this, you love the WWE, right. Cena will tell you he loves WWE. But the truth is, you have no idea what it's like for us. Every molecule of your being is this. Every fiber of who you are is this. You have no idea. Your great grandfather, your grandfather, your father, for us, for our kids, you have no idea. This is the air we breathe. (Trip looks deep in Steph's eyes, and she looks back with an open love for him.) We can't lose. We cannot lose.
Steph – We won't lose. We won't.
Trip – You're right. (Still staring at each other.) And we won't lose. And we won't lose. And we won't lose. We cannot lose. So this is the last chance of supposed Team Cena, this is your opportunity to back out. If you don't back out now, trust me, you will wish that you had.
Steph – And there's really no shame in backing out, I mean it takes more courage to back down from a fight than it does to start one. My father challenged us to become better leaders for you. Look at this team, the most dominant force in WWE history. In this ring it is survival of the fittest. It's the law of nature, and this team has been decimating and annihilating Team Cena all night long. So without further ado, allow me to introduce what's left, ladies and gentlemen, Team Cena.
John Cena comes out to the stage by himself. He looks apprehensive, then looks back. No one is there. Cena goes back a bit, then smiles and heads to the ring by himself. Slowly up the stairs and into the ring on the opposite side of the table from Team Authority.
Trip – I'm sorry, it's actually kind of ironic. I can't see the rest of your team.
Cena – You got jokes. It's funny. Joke's gonna stop this Sunday. I can see it in your eyes, Survivor Series, the most important day of your lives! WWE 'Universe' will be watching on the Network for free, and they're going to see you lose, then y'all will be out of power.
Steph – Oh, yeah, John, because you and what army are going to defeat this team? Sheamus has already been taken to the hospital for what Team Authority did to him. I don't see anyone else standing with you, and you know why? Because they value their careers. They value their livelihood. You're the only one too myopic to see that. Nobody's going to join you in your hopeless crusade and throw their entire lives away. Wake up Cena!
Cena – You're telling me to wake up?
Steph – Yes!
Cena – Don't get used to telling anyone anything, because after Sunday, you ain't gonna have no power! Team Authority will lose! Sitting over there with your smug dream team, and all night underhanded tricks to sabotage Team Cena. Every member except one man, the man who will make sure you lose. You say I don't see what's going on? I see what's going on, you come out here every week and put these people to sleep. Then you say it's what's what's best for business, every decision is what's best for yourself! I beat you by any means necessary. Hell, I'll pick four people out of the crowd! Is there anyone here who wants to kick the crap out of The Authority. (Cena from the ring to the front row.) I need four people who want to beat them. (There's a fake nun and a fake sailor in the front row.) Cena said they're in. (Cena calls to one guy further back.) My man, right here! (Cena slaps hand with a three year old boy in a Cena cap.) You know something Steph, Trip, even if I did go to war with those four, there's a huge difference between our teams, this is it. All of them have passion for the WWE. Your team is a bunch of suck ups and sellouts. So I promise you I know what's going on. I'll give you a preview of what's going on. You cannot miss Survivor Series on Sunday on WWE Network, it's free, not even $9.99 anymore, and this is why you need to see it. The Queen and King who sauntered to the ring, noses up, dream team trying to destroy Cena. Excuse me, I need a prop. (Cena grabs a chair.) They will take their ringside seat and think it's all a formality as the guy in the yellow shirt (Cena) is destroyed, and that's when your team, one by one, will fall. Kane will be the first. Kane, former fire breathing monster, kin to Taker, controlled by the magical urn, now a suit wear, butt kissing, bootleg Drew Carey!
Trip is leaning, face down on the corner buckle, almost drooling as he fakes being asleep.
Cena – You'll wake up in time to see Harper fail. Funny, he's from the swamp, and when he fails, you will have a swamp in your pants. Steph, you know what I'm talking about.
Trip slaps the corner in fake laughter.
Cena – It's a good one now, but your jobs will drop when Rusev can't get the job done, and that's when it gets serious. Your eyes tear up, your sweating through your suit, and you look to Steph for support, but she's like the new guy in the corner, puking her guts out. (sound effects) It's okay, after you throw up, you'll be hungry, then I will have no problem feeding you Sexual Chocolate.
"Sexual Chocolate!" chants. Cena heads back into the ring.
Cena – And that leaves just one, the sellout golden boy, Rollins. The bleached blond brunet with the fetish for latex. When he finally gets his attitude adjusted, you will be crushed. You're going to watch the ref count to three, and they will feel like three years as your life flashes before your eyes. Every person you stepped on to get to the top, every live you destroyed. It's actually pretty fitting that you spend the rest of your time in the WWE cleaning toilets. And you...
Steph reaches across the table and slaps Cena's face almost off.
Cena – You better get out of the ring, because it's go time.
Cena moves the table out of the way as Steph stands there in shock. Off comes the shirt and hat. Trip tells Cena to do it.
But then Ziggler's music. He comes out holding his neck, but he's there. Ziggler's hair is pulled back into a pony tail. Into the ring, and Ziggler stands next to Cena. Steph is still there, waiting with the guys.
Big Show's music, and out he comes to the ring. He stares as he gets into the ring between Ziggler and Cena.
Trip counts his numbers compared to Cena.
Music I don't recognize, it's Rowan! Rowan removes his mask and gets into the ring. Rowan gets pointing and yelling at a shocked Harper. Trip isn't thrilled.
"Feed me more!" chants.
Steph – Okay, that's a big surprise, but only four. One man short John. Considering who you're in the ring with, with one short at Survivor Series, that's tantamount to career suicide. So I'm giving the rest of you one last chance to consider.
"Feed me more!" chants.
Steph – One more chance.
Cesaro's pseudo-music hits! He comes out, pulls of his knee pads, and hits the ring, standing right with the rest of them. But then Cesaro over to The Authority side.
Steph – The look on your face, it was awesome! Hahahaha! Oh, my God, that was good. Anymore surprises? Hahaha!
"Feed me more!" and out comes The Big Guy as Steph's face falls! Mercury can be seen holding the ropes for Steph and Lana before Ryback gets to the ring. As soon as Ryback starts sliding in, Cena attacks. The fight starts, and Trip leaves the ring. The two captains are in, Rollins up for an AA, but Trip in, kicks Cena, and is about to pull him up, but Ryback is in the ring too. Ryback stares down Trip who stares back. Ziggler can be seen beating someone down outside. Cena grabs Trip, lifts him, and FU through the table!
Team Cena gets in the ring to join Cena as Steph is almost in tears outside the ring. They raise hands across the ring – Rowan, Big Show, Ryback, Cena, and Ziggler. Steph into the ring to tend to Trip. It looks as though Cena might have the start of a possible black eye starting. Steph continues to talk to Trip, tending to her husband. Trip is starting to sit up, hurts too much, and Steph calls for help.
Cesaro trolling the crowd
