So That Happened: 09/23/13

RAW beings with an Angelo Savoldi Tribute.

Dolph Ziggler, Rob Van Dam, Kofi Kingston, R-Truth, Justin Gabriel, Zack Ryder, The Usos and The Prime Time Players are standing on the RAW Stage.

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon make their way down to the ring and welcome everyone to RAW. Triple H brings up the ten men on stage who helped Daniel Bryan last week. Triple H brings up the rumors of the Superstars being fired, and says there’s a reason they’re all standing on that stage. Stephanie McMahon thanks the WWE Superstars for stepping up, grabbing that brass ring, and for finally being men.


Triple H adds on to the Thank Yous and claims that their stepping up had nothing to do with Daniel Bryan. Rob Van Dam interrupts and says it had a lot to do with Daniel Bryan and calls Triple H out for screwing him over. RVD claims Triple H would do the same to them and they were only fighting for what’s right.

Triple H says he finds it hard to believe that they were all fighting for Daniel Bryan since he’s never known a WWE Superstar that fought FOR WWE Champions. Triple H always thought WWE Superstars fought to be WWE Champion.

Triple H calls out Dolph Ziggler and asks if he actually wants Daniel Bryan to get another WWE Championship instead of him. Stephanie McMahon brings up R-Truth and asks when the last time he had a shot at the WWE Championship was. Stephanie asks R-Truth and Zack Ryder (“Woo Woo”) why they can’t be the face of the WWE?

Stephanie McMahon says there’s a reason why none of the men standing on stage have what it takes to be face of the company. Triple H cuts her off and says that the reason is The Shield. Triple H says that The Shield has been doing such a great job beating down each and every one of them and that is why the WWE Superstars are frustrated. Triple H claims that last week’s frustration had nothing to do with Daniel Bryan. It had to do with The Shield.

Triple H says he’s going to give the Superstars an opportunity to take the opportunity to take out some frustration tonight on The Shield in an elimination handicap match against The Shield, with their partner, who Triple H claims he’s better than all of them, Daniel Bryan.

Stephanie McMahon says that’s not all. Stephanie wanted to thank the WWE Superstars on stage, but also wanted to thank the WWE Universe. Stephanie tells the WWE Universe that they will have the opportunity to choose who gets to face Randy Orton tonight. The choices are R-Truth, Dolph Ziggler or ROB…VAN…DAM!!!

Stephanie McMahon says the WWE Universe can vote on who they want to face Randy Orton via the WWE App. The WWE Universe is not happy about that. Stephanie McMahon says that she feels that tonight’s Main Events is what’s best for the WWE Universe. Triple H chimes in and says that this is also Best For Business.

The crowd starts chanting for commentators and stuff again because that hasn’t gotten old…

The crowd starts chanting for Colt Cabana.

Winner: Alberto Del Rio

Backstage: Renee Young introduces a special guest…The Miz.

Renee Young asks The Miz how he’s feeling after the attack from Randy Orton last week. Before The Miz can answer, Triple H walks up and asks him how he’s feeling.

Triple H tells The Miz that he knows he wants to get his hands on Randy Orton tonight, but as COO, he can’t allow that to happen due to Miz’s injuries. However, he feels like giving the people what they want and Chicago wants MizTV.

Triple H says tonight, he’s going to allow The Miz to host MizTV with his guest, The Big Show.

Titus O’Neil gets tagged in and cleans house.

Titus O’Neil’s momentum is cut off by a Clothesline From Hell by Luke Harper.

Post-Match, Bray Wyatt hits Sister Abigail on Darren Young.

MizTV with Big Show:

The Miz says normally he’d come out with a smile on his face, but he’s banged up and really pissed off. Miz says he was humiliated by Randy Orton last week in front of his friends, family and Mother. The Miz tells Randy Orton is that it’s a lot easier to knock him down than to keep him down and that this isn’t over by a longshot. Miz tells Randy Orton that payback will come and it will be awesome.

The Miz segways into Big Show knocking out Dusty Rhodes, then introduces the Big Show. The Miz talks about his history with the Big Show and how much he respects Show as a man, but as a man, he has to ask him how could he do that to Dusty Rhodes?

Big Show doesn’t respond. The Miz tells Big Show that he understands Big Show’s personal issues and the situation he was in last week, but tells Big Show that Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are trying to break him. Miz says that Big Show is the largest guy in the locker room, who everyone respects and if Triple H and Stephanie break him, they can break everybody. The Miz tells Big Show that the WWE Superstars are starting to step up and that it’s time for Big Show to step up.

The Miz tells Big Show to stop letting that “Castrating Witch” demoralize him and before he can finish that sentence, Stephanie McMahon’s music plays.

Stephanie McMahon says she’s gonna let that slide because she knows The Miz likes to stir up the pot on MizTV. Stephanie tells Miz that there’s no reason for him to berate the Big Show and that his line of questioning if disrespectful and borderline slander. The Miz calls Stephanie McMahon out on making legal threats, then tells her to take those legal threats and shove them straight up her ass.

Stephanie McMahon mocks The Miz’s “original comeback” then tells him that the reason The Miz is doing this to the Big Show right now is because he’s living on his own Cul-de-sac of Disappointment. Stephanie calls The Miz out on his own inadequacies because not only did he suffer an embarrassing beating from Randy Orton, but he knows that he’s not a Main Event Player here. Stephanie says there’s nothing worse than a Superstar who peaks too early.

Stephanie McMahon tells The Miz that he he has value. Stephanie calls The Miz a utility player, meaning whenever there’s a radio show they need to put a WWE Superstar on, they call The Miz. Whenever there’s a promotional tour in some far off country, they call The Miz. Whenever there’s a supermarket that’s having a grand opening, but needs special promotion, they call The Miz.

Stephanie McMahon says it’s not like they haven’t given The Miz opportunities before. Stephanie McMahon calls out The Miz on having an opportunity to beat Randy Orton in his own hometown and failing to do so. Stephanie McMahon tells The Miz that she saw the look in the Miz’s Mom’s eyes go from hope to absolute disappointment because he failed her, his family, his friends and himself. Stephanie tells The Miz that once again he couldn’t measure up.

Stephanie McMahon says once again The Miz is here and once again he didn’t learn his lesson. Stephanie says she’s sorry she has to do this to him, then tells Big Show to knock him out. But of course, Big Show is going to start crying and-

The WWE Doctors check on The Miz.

Orton tells Brie Bella that if she’s looking to upgrade to a real man, he’s available.

Brie Bella says she has a real man and a real champion in Daniel Bryan. Orton tells Brie Bella that standing in front of her is what a real champion, real man and the face of the WWE looks like. Randy Orton tells Brie Bella that he is what Brie’s goatfaced, troll of a boyfriend will never be.

Stephanie McMahon is interrupted by AJ Lee, who gets a huge crowd reaction.

AJ questions that her own tag partners will turn against her at any minute and that this is no way to be treating the Divas Champion. Stephanie gets in AJ’s face.

CM Punk Speaks:

CM Punk receives a Hero’s Welcome from the Chicago Crowd.

CM Punk tells the Chicago Crowd that they completely ruined a perfectly good bad mood and that he hasn’t smiled in a week in a day, but he came out here and couldn’t help himself.

CM Punk says he tried to get the Stanley Cup here tonight, but since it’s getting engraved in Montreal, he feels like he let everybody down. CM Punk says it’s no big deal when he lets himself down, but last week in Detroit, he let everybody down. CM Punk is cut off by either a Detroit Sucks/Cena Sucks chants.

CM Punk apologizes again for letting everybody down because Paul Heyman pinned him in the middle of the ring. Punk says it’s going to read in Gray’s Sports Almanac that Paul Heyman beat CM Punk. CM Punk says that he’s lost a lot, but this loss really bummed him out. Punk questions if he can do this anymore, wear a Blackhawks Jersey or be fit to perform in front of the greatest wrestling crowd, Chicago.

CM Punk questions if he deserves to represent Chicago, but then remembers putting the Blackhawks Jersey on and coming out to one hell of an ovation. CM Punk compares his situation to the Detroit Redwings almost beating the Chicago Blackhawks, but the Blackhawks came out on top.

CM Punk says that sometimes Chicago gets beaten up, but they get back up and go back to work the next day. Punk says that no matter if he loses, he promises to get back up and pull out a victory because that is the Chicago Way. CM Punk talks about the love he has for Chicago and whether it’s Curtis Axel or Ryback, he wants a fight.

Paul Heyman comes out on a scooter singing his rendition of New York, New York.

Paul Heyman’s mic cuts off while he’s introducing himself.

CM Punk tells Paul Heyman that he picked the wrong time to interrupt because this isn’t Detroit, this is Chicago and Punk has 18,000 people that are willing to bail him out of jail after he gets his hands on Heyman tonight.

Paul Heyman tells CM Punk that he doesn’t need him to remind him of the beating he took in Detroit. Heyman claims to be in physical therapy since Night Of Champions and that the reason he is in the motorized scooter is because of CM Punk. Heyman says he takes solace in the fact that he can walk through life saying that he beat CM Punk. Heyman tells CM Punk that it’s not his fault that he lost, it’s geography’s. Heyman says since Punk is from Chicago, a second rate city with second rate teams and second rate citizens, it’s the reason why he’s the second best in the world.

The crowd starts chanting “Walrus” after Paul Heyman shows footage of him defeating CM Punk. Paul Heyman fires back with…

CM Punk tells Paul Heyman that he’s not stupid because he knows how this ends, but asks Paul Heyman a question first: Can Curtis Axel and Ryback get to CM Punk faster than Punk can get to Paul Heyman? CM Punk says even if he gets to Heyman 2 seconds before they do, that’s all he needs because he’s not going to break Paul Heyman’s face anymore. He’s gonna rip his face off.

Paul Heyman tells CM Punk that not only did he beat CM Punk, he beat him with both hands tied behind his back. Heyman tries to leave, but the scooter stops working!

CM Punk goes after Paul Heyman, but before he can do anything, Curtis Axel and Ryback attack CM Punk from outta nowhere.

CM Punk does his best to fight off Curtis Axel and Ryback. CM Punk throws Curtis Axel into the stage, then dives off the ramp onto Ryback.

CM Punk attacks Ryback and tosses him into the stage, but Curtis Axel attacks him from behind. Punk knocks out Curtis Axel, but Ryback attacks him from behind.

Ambrose says that their beef with them isn’t important, but what is important is that it’s Best For Business. Dean Ambrose says their backs are against the wall, but asks Seth Rollins what happens when they’re backs are against the wall. Rollins says they step up and revolutionize the game. Ambrose follows up by saying they’re going to step up, do their job and win because they’re winners. Ambrose says Believe That, while Roman Reigns ends it with “Believe In The Shield.”

Daniel Bryan Speaks:

After a loud Daniel Bryan chant, Bryan calls the crowd awesome. Bryan reminds everyone of him being stripped of the WWE Championship due to the controversy with Scott Armstrong. Daniel Bryan says that there would be no need for him to ask for a fast count, especially since Randy Orton would already be knocked out. Bryan says that he doesn’t know what happened at Night Of Champions, but he doesn’t care. It doesn’t matter what version of Randy Orton shows up, whether it’s the new nice happy Randy Orton or the old Randy Orton, he takes back what’s his. The WWE Championship.

Daniel Bryan says at Battleground, there will be no fast counts, guest referees or excuses and that the next day, when Randy Orton wakes up from the beating that the B+, Goat Faced Troll gives him, he is going to hear one word etched over and over again in the back of his brain. It’s going to be the word that will haunt him throughout his career and the word that everyone will be chanting at Battleground: “YES!!”
