Rebooking WWE RAW (7/9/12)

So to sum up RAW, they had 6 wins and 2 matches. Wins are what happens when a match is under 3 minutes and you can’t really get invested. matches last longer and let you care about the conclusion.

WWE Title >> AJ Lee / CM Punk / Daniel Bryan Storyline
Bryan wanting to marry AJ makes more sense than AJ wanting to marry Punk. AJ writing Punk valentines, creepy poems and stuff like that makes sense and it can be more subtle and less fucking insane. However, Bryan wanting to marry her would make sense from a title standpoint.

AJ should be asking what do you want Punk? I can be what you want! Punk can say I don’t want you, I don’t want this. I dig crazy chicks, but I want to keep my title more than I want to date you…. That can still keep the illusion of not knowing who will win the title match if CM wants to keep his belt.

At least AJ makes Punk & Bryan look tall…. because John Cena doesn’t help.

When RAW started, I thought, shouldn’t Beth just appear to destroy AJ. AJ will try to talk her out of it, Beth can say…. enough talking. You’re a wrestler, not a referee. This is a referee (who then appears) and this is a match. Then destroys AJ. Daniel Bryan can run out to pick her up and carry her. AJ… AJ are you okay? What did you do to her you monster????

Pushing Tyson Kidd
Since people are buzzing about Tyson Kidd, WWE can bring up the pay-per-view from July from a decade ago…. Canadian Stampede where the Harts reigned supreme! The Harts who trained Kidd. Have his wife / fiance give him a simple good luck kiss. Show him coming up over the years…. his long rise to even get a shot at a title shot! This man had to live on spaghetti-os and wrestle in front of 50 people to wrestle in front of 10,000. Have Bret Hart smile, hit Tyson on the shoulder and say go get that title shot Kidd.

Smackdown Money in the Bank >> Tyson Kidd / Christian / Tensai / Cody Rhodes / Dolph Ziggler / Sin Cara Storyline
I want to hear Kidd Talk. WWE needs to do a lot to sell the Smackdown guys and why they should be champion. Why should I care about Ziggler when he’s FAILED on 2 dozen title shots? Why should I care about Tensai when he FAILS to beat John Cena? Tell me why Cody Rhodes is more than just the name RHODES? Tell me why I should give a damn about Santino as more than a cartoon character. Why should I care about Christian when he’s held the belt and whined about losing it for months? Why should I get behind Tyson Kidd when he only gets lucky wins and sniffs underwear? I need to know why the hell I care about any of these people. You have 1 week. Fuck you had 4 weeks and entire careers to make me care.

Heavyweight title >> Alberto Del Rio / Sheamus Storyline
If WWE wanted to gain a 1 night heat on ADR that uses a car…. have him run over Sheamus with a car in a garage. OMG he just run him over Can Sheamus defend his title in 1 week after being hit with a car???? But then again does the WWE want to waste a car angle on a match that is the 3rd from the top at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view?

Or like I’ve mentioned for the past few weeks, build up ADR over 2 or 3 weeks by breaking jobbers arms and getting tap outs. ADR breaks arms, but Sheamus is no normal man. Then stack the deck. Submission match with a champion that doesn’t really win by submission.

RAW Money in the Bank >> John Cena / Big Show / Kane / Chris Jericho Storyline
I’ve pointed out several times…. starve people of Cena, Jericho, Kane and Big Show…. instead of putting them all together. Sure that might be what the RAW fans want to see when you have them sit through shit. Promos against one another, building each of them individually. Asking wrestlers and FANS who will win? Why will they win? Ask Punk who will win and who he wants to? Make this match seem bigger than it is.

Why should I care about Cena, Big Show, Jericho and Kane? All 4 have held almost 40+ world titles between them. Is it because they’re the best???? Well if they were, they would still be holding the title. Kane should go out and destroy the …ladder so no one can win….. why? Because he should only care about a title because it will draw more victims. People want gold and I guard that gold and I want to hurt people. Why does Big Show want to be champion when he has an iron clad contract? Is there more money in it for him? Or is it to outlive the failure of losing the Smackdown belt in what 30 seconds??? Yeah that’s it. Why does Cena want it? To be champion 11 times? You’ll always remember your 11th title reign!!!!! No…. its because Punk beat him last year at the biggest event of the year. Even bigger than Mania. Punk embarassed Cena when Cena KNEW he’d hold onto that belt. Why does Jericho want it? To prove he’s the best in the world again? No because Punk beat him and he can’t sleep at night without thinking how Punk beat him. Punk beat him 3x and he wants to make Punk pay!
Cena should really be the guy getting the sole title shot against Punk. Cena has won a lot lately. Even has major PPV victories this year over Kane, Big Show…. and well took on Jericho a lil while ago.
I’d really really really have this Cena / Kane vs Show / Jericho on house shows and not the TV. Deny fans any combination of the main event of your PPV. But give the house show fans something for their money. Nope…. instead its Cena vs Big Show and Bryan & Punk vs Kane & Jericho. wtf? How does this make sense?

Since Cena is clearly the odds on favorite to win the Money in the Bank… and he’s had major feuds with all 3 of these guys over the years…. why not Cena vs 3 of them? Or why use matches to build up these 4 guys? Is it because WWE actually needs a real match on RAW?

Let’s look at the logic of the big tag match…. why should Jericho want Big Show to tag out? Wouldn’t he want everyone to get weakened? Hell wouldn’t he just leave the arena until someone said if you don’t tag in you won’t be in the Money in the Bank briefcase.

A DQ in a tag match… John Cena & Kane vs Big Show & Chris Jericho Logistically breaking up a pin should be a DQ. Just like a singles match. I never thought of it. Yeah.  Now if the ref doesn’t see it….

WWE tag division storyline… Ron Killings & Kofi Kingston vs Hunico & Camacho
Didn’t the Prime Time Players win a title shot for the tag titles at the last PPV? Why are Hunico and Camacho getting the tag title shot at the pay-per-view? Doesn’t Ron Killings have a broken foot? Does WWE actually have 4 tag teams? That’s a start.

Sin Cara & Tyson Kidd (put Kidd under a mask and call him Kidd Canada). Ryback & Ryan (Mason). Drew & Rekks. Hawkins as a buttler for Damien Sandow. Santino & Ryder or Ryder & Ricardo. Dibiase & Regal…. if one wasn’t retired and the other injured. Jinder & Khali… who cares if one is face and the other is heel.

And again just randomly put low end guys together at house shows. Find who’s awesome enough to be on TV even if you don’t have ethnic matching like a pair of blacks and a pair of mexicans. Why not an Asian with a black guy?

Heating up a dead storyline…. Michael Cole vs Jerry Lawler
Cole vs Lawler…. smells like WWE just gave up. None of our wrestlers are over enough…. go with announcers! Wasting time on this when you should be building Smackdown guys to be credible enough to win a title or at least making RAW guys credible enough to take on Punk.

Perhaps if they spent more time making people credible and less time searching for Hornswaggle and watching commentator’s wrestle there would be 75% of fans wanting to see Christian vs Cody or Kidd vs Yoshi Tatsu.

Rebooking RAW (7/2/12)

So far it looks like there are only 4 matches for the Money in the Bank pay-per-view coming up. In last week’s rebooking RAW I think that I made 8 logical matches. Chances are the WWE will make 8 matches 2 will be squash matches involving Ryback and Sin Cara. WWE RAW didn’t give me much to work with what with all of its 3 minute matches.

MONEY IN THE BANK >> KIDD vs DOLPH vs SANTINO vs TENSAI vs CHRISTIAN vs CODY vs DAMIEN
I think booking the main event money in the bank match is a lot tougher than the Smackdown one. The Smackdown one is a place to showcase new talent and Smackdown should be the place to plug their money in the bank match (even if this is rebooking RAW). Have them explain why they want the title or why they feel they will be the next champion. Damien Sandow can talk, Christian can do his promo with the peeps, Cody can laugh, Santino can be in comedy training vignettes… Tensai can be in a video drinking tea and destroying jobbers in the gym, Dolph can tell his manager to shut up… he wants to talk, and Kidd can go out be wreckless. You can even have sit down interviews with each one to talk with them for real-sies explaining why they got in the business, their sufferage and why they stuck with it to one day be at the top of the WWE. Don’t ask Damien or Santino. They’re not real characters or have them do it in character. Then you continue them all having singles wins building up to the pay-per-view. I have a feeling WWE will throw them into an 8 man tag.

MONEY IN THE BANK >> CENA vs JERICHO vs BIG SHOW vs KANE STORYLINE
But with the main event money in the bank its a lot tougher with 50+ years of WWE experience. I’m not sure anyone has the desire to see any of them to be champion again so much as be a stepping stone for Punk. I say starve fans of interaction between the four of them. Ask wrestlers and fans at live events, who will win. Even ask CM Punk who he thinks will win since a fighting champion doesn’t care who will win. Make it like a larger than life dream match instead of a stepping stone for men who have climbed Mt. Everest. They literally do not need any matches to build them up, they are the top guys, the guys you should be paying to see and if you don’t agree with people paying to see them, the WWE has failed over the past decade.

DANIEL BRYAN / CM PUNK / AJ LEE STORYLINE
Legend has it that AJ Lee will be the guest referee… Daniel Bryan should suddenly find himself appologizing to her. Roses. He misses her. Aw Daniel you’re so sweet. I don’t like sweet. He can either then pull her hair or intimidate her then. I win at the PPV. AJ can tell them… the best man will win. Then at the PPV Punk can put Bryan in the anaconda vice and AJ can be oblivious to Bryan tapping. That’s either an… I want Bryan to win or I hate Bryan and want him to suffer thing.

DANIEL BYRAN / CM PUNK / AJ LEE / KANE STORYLINE
WWE RAW saw Daniel Bryan & Jericho vs Cena & Punk. That’s a great match on paper, but WWE should be starving you of Bryan and Punk, since we’ve seen them in singles matches 6+ times in 3 months. Punk is also the same guy who has been in a drinking angle and stuck in an AJ Lee storyline since this year started.

If WWE RAW was a movie AJ would be brushing her hair, Punk would come in. She’d try to kiss him, he’d say no She’d take her brush break the mirror. Yell at him. She’d then cut herself once and say you will love me! He can say no put that down …okay? She’d cut herself, wince in pain, tear up say it again, why don’t you love me? He’d explain then she’d cut again until he finally kissed her and she’d cry and they’d go find an EMT … together. Then she’d become his project to fix.

Then…. Daniel Bryan can get on Punk’s case. Why did he let her do that? You’re a man, you could have stopped her! You just had to give in and kiss her and she wouldn’t have done that. It’s your fault she did that. Then later Kane can stop by the ambulance / EMTs and tell them take a walk. Then Kane can say those cuts hurt don’t they… she says yeah… then he says good… then walks away laughing.

It can still be PG… just don’t show what she does with the mirror. Its not in view of the camera. Just show their upper halves. Then a week later Kane can call out AJ and ask how she’s healing if she’s scarred… like him. Join him and together they can be a pair of freaks.

Kane will keep talking… I’ve realized you and I are exactly alike. We’re both unwanted. Neither Daniel or Punk want you. Neither did I. We both like pain… Take my hand AJ and I’ll bring pain to everyone that brought it to us. Through their pain and suffering, I’ll make you feel better. They walk off hand in hand or someone will stop them asking did that just happen? and Kane will chokeslam that person.

HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE >> SHEAMUS vs ALBERTO DEL RIO STORYLINE
Since Sheamus doesn’t have any on screen friends, ADR needs to start breaking arms in and out of the ring. Zack Ryder, Sin Cara, Santino, Ted Dibiase, Drew McIntyre, heels, faces, it doesn’t matter, start breaking them 2 in each show. Until finally ADR puts the cross arm breaker on a woman, let’s say Alicia Fox. Then Sheamus appears, ADR bolts, then distracts him for Ricardo, but Sheamus no sells and puts out Ricardo. ADR can cut a final promo about the arms he’s broken and how will Sheamus lift his title… with a broken arm. ADR was an Olympic wrestler, drives beautiful cars and gets beautiful women. Sheamus is a bar brawler, drives a pinto and gets the fattest women of Ireland. That is why Sheamus is so strong from sweeping those porkers off their feet. #porklover

IN CONCLUSION
With all of this being said, I think my last rebooking RAW was better, because it lead to better matches.

Rebooking RAW (6/25/12) and making a better Money in the Bank PPV

I want to preface with my thought that WWE RAW was OK. It was good in the way that it was not bad and I’m totally fine with that. It looks like we’re getting Daniel Bryan vs CM Punk and Money in the Bank with former champions Chris Jericho vs John Cena vs Kane vs Big Show. Kind of leading me to believe that Cena will become the first man to win Money in the Bank and lose the title match.

With all that said…. here is my rebooking RAW:

HAVE ONE SINGLE MONEY IN THE BANK MATCH
I would have had 1 Money in the Bank with 8 people… 2 of which take themselves out or brawl to the back. Having 1 money in the bank puts heat on the match, but also the man that wins can appear on RAW and Smackdown to tease who he’ll chal…lenge. Then have 10 matches over RAW & Smackdown to qualify for the 8 slots. Heck WWE likes voting so much, have the fans vote who should win #MITBcena. Then the top 8 guys get in or just have it the fastest 8 victories.
You can have those 10 matches on 2 shows putting over the guys and then have 8 more matches on 2 more shows putting over the guys in the Money in the Bank. Jericho can try to form alliances. Big Show can prove he can dominate… when everyone is knocked out he can climb the ladder. Sin Cara and Kofi can high fly into people to make you think Money in the Bank will be worth your money as a spectral. Sure they aren’t in Money in the Bank unless there are two matches, but hey. Zack Ryder can be thrown into it as a fan favorite and Dolph Ziggler and Alberto Del Rio can round out the 8 participants.
With the WWE version of money in the bank… I just thing this is 4 guys that have been with WWE alone for 10+ years with zero heat going into it. 20+ world title reigns between them. This is a match that should have been in 2002, not 2012. This is probably the best worked match they could probably have, but not the greatest spectacal.
CM PUNK vs JOHN CENA… ONE MORE TIME
Also I’d much prefer Cena vs Punk at the PPV. Why? Because it would celebrate 1 year of last year and that means more than another Bryan vs Punk match even if its better. Have Cena go over Otunga, have Dolph go over Heath, have Del Rio go o…ver Brodus and have a 3 way at the end of the night. The winner gets to pick their title shot at Money in the Bank. Cena would pick next week to face Punk. Punk can say do we really want to do this again? I beat you last year. Then when you won, you left the company and held out for more money while I’ve always been here. You say you’re the best in the world, but I’m the guy here proving it every week. I took out Brock, Big Show and the one guy you said you’d take out and that’s John Laurenitus. What makes you think you’re the best in the world when I’m the one main eventing? Then CM can shoot on him and probably not rekindle anything from last year, but more of a cash in and they can probably do some interesting promos with a 2 week build.
IF YOU HAVE TO DO SHEAMUS vs DOLPH vs DEL RIO
As for Dolph & Del Rio & Sheamus, the Dolph vs Del Rio contract on a pole match was the best it could have been, if it wasn’t so pointless at the end… it would make more sense to have one of the contenders get a victory heading into the match so if anything Dolph over Slater and Del Rio over Brodus. Both guys would have 2 victories going into their 3 way. Then do the 3 way at the PPV with 3 weeks of build instead of a moment before their title match this week.
Then on top of that last idea. Dolph needs to get one over on Sheamus. Have Dolph put a sleeper or rear naked choke on Sheamus and then Del Rio can do the arm bar to him at the same time.
I’m no fan of Sheamus vs Dolph vs Del Rio. I’d rather see Sheamus vs Kane. Well I’d rather not see either of them.
AJ AND KANE, THE POWER COUPLE

Then get AJ a title shot at the PPV by…. backstage AJ tells Kane. I’ll win my match just for you…. then reveal its Kane. Then she says I’d really like it if you were there for me. AJ goes out and wins a title shot against… Alicia Fox …or someone using some submission that would effect the champion Layla. Whatever Layla was just out for a knee make AJ’s submission a knee lock. Kane doesn’t come out. AJ cheats then uses the submission for the win. AJ keeps the hold on way too long and Layla comes running down and beats up AJ, who then says Kane help me please! So Kane comes out and choke slams Layla out of action for a month. Kane is banned from having matches for a month. AJ starts an unofficial reign as the top diva with a giant behind her. Just incase she ever dares to lose. AJ can have a match against someone else at the PPV and have the title shot 2 PPVs from now.
That idea could also get Kane matches. CM comes out… you don’t do that to women we love women… Bingo match. Sheamus runs out to kick a mans ass that choke slammed a woman. Bingo. Match. If WWE or USA Network doesn’t want to have any man against women violence (like Spike TV), then  Kane put his hand around someone and almost choke slam her, but thank goth Sheamus arrived!!!!
It would put heat on AJ’s matches. The divas could say how could you ever love that thing…. you know Kane AJ doesn’t really love you, she’s just using you since she’s too small and weak for the division. Referee says… Kane you’re banned from ringside for this match! Imagine the mixed tags. Oh and the best part to all of this is… even when she has Kane, she can still mess with Bryan and Punk… for dumping her.
RYBACK vs BRODUS CLAY
Brodus lost this week to the Big Show, but in my world they’d be unbeatable until they face each other. Kind of like you know one of them will lose. You’re paying to see one of them lose. I’d have Ryback destroy him with feats of wow he can lift Brodus. Then have Brodus stretchered out to put heat on Ryback for killing a teddy bear. And yes Ryback can build by killing low end guys that aren’t 1 time jobbers.
TO FILL OUT MONEY IN THE BANK PAY PER VIEW Then I guess to fill out the TLC card have Lord Tensai vs Santino with a comedy build. Cody vs Christian with a normal build. Oh and the tag titles… Kofi and Killings can lose the tag titles to the Prime Time Players by way of their manager helping them cheat to gain the titles. Then have them defend the belts against someone at the pay-per-view. I’m thinking Camacho & Hunico.. Someone can step up to take on AJ for Layla’s honor.
A LOOK AT MY MONEY IN THE BANK CARD
So… looking at Money in the Bank we just hammered out:
CM PUNK vs JOHN CENA
SHEAMUS vs KANE
BIG SHOW vs CHRIS JERICHO vs ALBERTO DEL RIO vs DANIEL BRYAN vs KOFI KINGSTON vs DOLPH ZIGGLER vs ZAK RYDER vs SIN CARA
AJ LEE vs LAYLA ALI (or friend of Layla)
CHRISTIAN vs CODY RHODES
SANTINO vs LORD TENSAI
PRIME TIME PLAYERS vs CAMACHO & HUNICO
RYBACK vs BRODUS CLAY

Rebooking RAW (6/19/12)

So half a year ago, someone wanted to give me a column to rebook RAW, which I usually do, but eh that sounded like too much work to do it consistently. After watching a 5 minute recap video on WWE RAW and hearing how bad the actual show was, I got inspired. Of course hind sight is always 20/20 and its much more difficult to book RAW from scratch, but here’s my version of RAW making use of everyone on it.

MICK FOLEY GM
Since GM Johnny is no longer GM and the WWE is in Long Island, NY, Mick Foley can be the guest GM for tonight. He wants to give his hometown hero an oppertunity. He calls out Zack Ryder who is also from Long Island, NY. Sure the Internet knows him, but 200,000 watches for his videos mean nothing to the 4+ million people watching WWE RAW. Mick is going to give him either an intercontinental or US title shot tonight. The fans need to decide on Twitter. Mick says he’s also made some time for GM Johnny to say goodbye, to make a farewell address. Johnny comes out, Mick takes pity on Johnny and gives him one last chance to save face on his way out. After all, Mick had a farewell match at Wrestlemania 2000. It is a singles match with John Cena.

PRIME TIME PLAYERS over RON KILLINGS & KOFI KINGSTON (RKKK) with help from AW
Word on the street is that Ron Killings has a broken foot. Why not give the tag belts to some new blood? Unless you’re selling Ron being knocked out by the Big Show from the previous week. This can set up a feud. I don’t like just giving any belt away, but if the Truth is injured….

CENA over GM JOHNNY
Johnny loses obviously, and Cena wants one man to be the guy to throw GM Johnny out on his ass and that’s Teddy Long. Teddy takes Johnny up the ramp, through the hallway and out the door. That doesn’t mean Teddy Long is the new GM, but it does get some revenge to tie up the loose ends of their storyline. But then cameras can come back to the ring, because Cena is being laid out by Big Show.

ADR over someone… BRODUS CLAY?
Eh, not Brodus, since he has a winning streak.

LAYLA & WENDI RICTER w/ CYNDI LAUPER over BETH & NATALYA
Is Natalya even a heel? Show a clip of why Wendi and Cyndi are important to the WWE. Then have Layla introduce them. Then have it interrupted by Beth & Natalya that ends in a match. Wendi can get the pin with Layla doing the work. It will be a feel good moment.

DOLPH ZIGGLER over JACK SWAGGER w/ VICKI
Dolph is sick of those two holding him down. So he issues a match. He wins and turns face in the process. Vicki tries to get with Dolph Ziggler afterward, but he kicks her to the curb. Swagger and Vicki swear vengeance. … the tough part is then Dolph Ziggler gets lost in the shuffle of a million other faces on RAW. This sets up a feud.

ZAK RYDER vs CHRISTIAN or SANTINO ends with a no contest
Whoever the fans pick. Cody Rhodes and Ricardo Rodriguez can interfere on them both leading to…
ZAK RYDER & CHRISTIAN or SANTINO over CODY RHODES & RICARDO RODRIGUEZ
Ryder gets the win.

HHH & PAUL HEYMAN ANGLE
Yeah you can have it here. Unfortunately, I can’t care about a match between a guy that owns a company and a cowardly take his ball and go home heel. WWE dropped the ball, because they want to prove WWE > UFC. This should end with Heyman either in glory with security pulling HHH off of him or Heyman face down after a pedigree. I say Heyman being saved by security. Heck or instead of having HHH & Heyman face to face… just have a video showing HHH and Brock in their prime 9 years ago and why we should want to see the match.

CHRISTIAN or SANTINO over HEATH SLATER
Yep, simple as that. 4 minute match. Buffer…

DANIEL BRYAN & KANE over SHEAMUS & CM PUNK
In this match, Daniel Bryan cheats to get a pin over CM Punk who then chases Bryan through the crowd. Sheamus is then laid out by Kane. AJ can still come skipping by in her Kane gear, but then Kane can raise his arms and make his pyro go boom. Then follow AJ up the ramp as AJ has her finger doing the ‘come here’ gesture. This sets up 2 feuds.

There you go. A few feel good moments, 8 matches, 10 segments.

My ideas to build Smackdown’s Elimination Chamber

ELIMINATION CHAMBER
With the Elimination Chamber PPV on the horizon, the WWE needs to make 2 Elimination Chamber matches. One for CM Punk’s championship was already made on Monday Night RAW. With Smackdown on Friday, the WWE needs to make one for Daniel Bryan’s heavyweight title. Sure the Smackdown tapings have happened, but I’m not one to read spoilers.

So to make the Smackdown Elimination Chamber match, the obvious idea would be to assign people. Let’s say Orton vs Wade vs Cody vs Bryan vs Big Show vs Henry. That’s obvious… but that doesn’t make for a watchable Smackdown show. So I came up with the idea of qualifying matches…

THE OBVIOUS
Orton vs Drew McIntyre

Wade vs Ted DiBiase
Henry vs Ezekiel Jackson
Big Show vs Jinder Mahaul
Cody vs Sin Cara (or Gabriel or Kane since technically he is or was a Smackdown guy)

The winners would be obvious except for the last match. So you could couple it with the idea of a speed record. The man with the quickest match gets the #6 entrance in the Elimination Chamber. The slowest victory will be the #1 entrant and so on. The champion would randomly enter. Some people would have a problem with just feeding midcarders to main eventers. That is not captivating television, so let’s reorder everything…

THE LESS OBVIOUS
Henry vs Big Show

Wade vs Orton
Cody vs Sin Cara
Jinder Mahaul vs Ezekiel Jackson
Ted DiBiase vs Drew McIntyre

Who would win those matches… would you watch that Smackdown? You could couple that with my time = entrant idea.

But does anyone really want to see a chamber match with Orton vs Henry vs Cody vs Ezekiel vs Dibiase vs Bryan? Probably not, so then we book injuries and reworkings. Here we go:

SMACKDOWN WEEK 1
ORTON over WADE to get into the chamber match or WADE over ORTON
BIG SHOW over HENRY to get into the chamber match
CODY over SIN CARA to get into the chamber match
EZEKIEL over JINDER to get into the chamber match or JINDER over EZEKIEL
DIBIASE over DREW to get into the chamber match

SMACKDOWN WEEK 2
WADE over EZEKIEL. Wade cheats to win and beats down Zeke who then gets a comeback and Wade bails.
Or ORTON over JINDER with Orton going over clean and there’s nothing Jinder can do. Orton has his arms raised and that’s it. Jinder is angry…
HENRY asks GM TEDDY LONG to get into the chamber to get his title back. Teddy shoots him down… so instead Henry asks Daniel Bryan for a title shot. Daniel refuses he’s just had a match or he’s injured or something, but Henry doesn’t get a match. Henry knows what it will take to get into the match…

SMACKDOWN WEEK 3
WADE over EZEKIEL
because Zeke wants to crush Wade and avenge the loss… well Wade doesn’t want a match, he has already beaten Zeke. Zeke has something Wade wants… and that’s a shot in the chamber match.
Or ORTON over JINDER because Jinder is so angry at Orton, he demands a rematch! Orton already beat Jinder, but if Jinder is so confident that he can beat Orton again… he should put up his entrance in the Elimination Chamber. Jinder refuses… Teddy Long comes out and says he likes that idea and he makes the matches around here, so tonight it is Orton vs Jinder for the last slot.
HENRY over DIBIASE and injures Dibiase in the process. Mark Henry lobbies to get in the match since DiBiase is injured and all… That’s a shame… If Henry thinks he’s getting into the chamber he’s right… but as #1 so he can take a beating from every Smackdown superstar. Good luck Mr. Henry!

ELIMINATION CHAMBER
ELIMINATION CHAMBER MATCH >> WADE vs HENRY vs ORTON vs BIG SHOW vs RHODES vs BRYAN

IN CONCLUSION
There could be several tweaks like Orton and Rhodes shots are in jeapordy. You could have someone go over Daniel Bryan in a non-title match to get a spot in the chamber, but I’d rather not have a champion lose any matches unless its for the belt.

My WWE booking my TLC to Royal Rumble (and the 6 weeks inbetwen)

At people’s requests… This is a continuance of my Survivor Series to TLC. To summarize… Del Rio is looking strong going over Punk at Survivor Series and Cena at TLC. Henry beat Kane who retaliated, Punk went over Nash with help from a returning HHH, Miz & Truth went over Bourne & Kofi for the titles, Daniel Bryan’s briefcase was stolen assumingly by Christian, but no it wasn’t, Ziggler lost the IC belt to Ryder and Big Show went over Barrett in a KO challenge.

TLC to ROYAL RUMBLE (6 weeks) (so far taken me 6 hours to write and book)

ROYAL RUMBLE MATCH (big players on RAW: Cena & Punk)
– Week 1: Punk lost his singles match against Del Rio. Cena lost his singles match against Del Rio. All hail Del Rio who reminds Cena that he promised the Rock he would be champion at Wrestlemania, but over Del Rio’s dead body. Brodus is Del Rio’s bodyguard. Cena vows to win the Royal Rumble to get his title shot and win the title at WrestleMania before his match with the Rock. Cena says Del   Rio is nothing but a road block on his way to the Rock. Punk interrupts and says Cena is nothing but dead weight Punk needs to dump over the top rope to go into Wrestlemania. GM John Laurinitus appears to say that if Punk or Cena ever want a title shot again, they’ll work as a team and beat the tag champs Miz & Truth. If Punk and Cena fail to win, they’ll have a singles match at the Royal Rumble. CENA & PUNK over MIZ & TRUTH. Afterward Cena goes after Del   Rio, Brodus defends Del Rio and Punk is left to take the beating from Miz & Truth.
– Week 2: GM John Laruinitus comes out and congratulates Punk & Cena on their victory. He enjoyed Punk & Cena working together. He wants to make another match. Punk comes out and stops him. One tag match was fine, but he’s a singles competitor and thinks Cena would agree. GM John says very well. Tonight it will be Punk alone against a mystery tag team. You’ll wish you had someone to tag out to. Oh and Punk, if you or John Cena lose or interfere in any match between now and Royal Rumble, neither of you will be in the Royal Rumble match and won’t see a title shot as long as I’m in power. GM John summons the tag team. PUNK over TYLER REKS & MASONRYAN(Cena is watching backstage). Cena comes out to cheer Punk on. Punk takes a beating. Punk waves off any potential help from Cena and still wins. After the match, GM John comes out and tells Cena to prepare for his match next week.
– Week 3: Backstage GM John is with Otunga & McGillicutty. They’ve fallen off of the tag team map. How would they like to get back in the picture? Face Cena tonight. CENA over OTUNGA & MCGILLICUTTY.
– Week 4: Backstage, GM John is looking for someone to face Cena. Everyone shakes their head no. They know Cena will kill them. Finally, Cena gets to Vicki, Dolph and Swagger. Vicki wonders what’s in it for her clients? If they beat Cena they’ll get individual WWE title shots. She agrees then she wonders what’s in it for her? GM John says he’s a married man if that’s what she’s implying… but just for Vicki he’ll throw in a honey glazed ham. CENA over DOLPH & SWAGGER.
– Week 5: Backstage, Nash wants a match from Laurinitus who then gives him Punk. If Punk loses he won’t be going to the Royal Rumble. Nash pins Punk… who had his foot on the rope. Then after the fact, the ref notices the foot and the terrible mistake. He tries to restart the match, but gets roughed up by Nash! Punk pulls Nash away, GTS and a pinfall. The referee runs away.
– Week 6:John Cena comes out and thanks GM John Laurenitus for making life so interesting over the past few weeks, but Cena has had his fill of handicap matches. He’s ready for the Royal Rumble match. CM Punk comes out and agrees… GM John comes out and says that there’s still one last match they’ll have to have. It’s a singles match… Remember GM John said if either of you lose or interfere between then and Royal Rumble, they’ll be taken out of the match. Well you don’t have to worry about the interference… because it will be against one another. Cena vs Punk to a no contest. In the match, Cena throws Punk over the top, Later, Punk throws Cena over the top. During the match, Del Rio comes out and points out the fact that Cena and Punk have made a lot of enemies this past six weeks and neither man will win the Royal Rumble since they’ll both have a big target on their back. Out march Dolph, Swagger, Mason, Reks, Otunga, McGillicutty, Miz & Truth to beat down Cena & Punk causing the no contest. No one lost… but no one won.
– PPV: Cena and CM Punk are the final two. CM Punk wins the Rumble match, since WWE has always cemented guys with the Royal Rumble. This was all about putting heat on the 2 guys that might win it.

DEL RIO vs JOMO (JoMo’s streak)
Why? Because the title match doesn’t sell Royal Rumble. Why JoMo? To build him for Elimination Chamber.
– Week 1: JOMO over JTG. JTG laughs at JoMo and says once he loses tonight, he’ll be at the bottom of the barrel. JoMo says he’s been near the top before and reached for that shiny brass ring. That brass ring is worth more than the gold in JTG’s grill. JoMo goes over and looks effective while doing it.

– Week 2: JOMO over SWAGGER. Swagger and Vicki come out and belittle JoMo for his accomplishment of beating JTG. JoMo mentions that was the start of a winning streak.
– Week 3: Del Rio says his oponent has 2 wins in a row, but Del Rio is there to crush his hopes of ever getting to the top. JoMo is sent out. NON TITLE >> JOMO over DEL RIO by a 3 quarter nelson out of the blue. This was supposed to be a standard match, but Del Rio gets pinned and then he and Brodus Clay beat down JoMo afterward for the embarrassment.
– Week 4: JOMO over MASON. While JoMo is still in his coat… Mason poses to the crowd to boos. Then JoMo shows off his abs to the crowd to cheers. Mason attacks and after a quick match, JoMo goes over. Jim Ross goes out to compliment JoMo on his victory and having 4 wins in a row. Del Rio comes out and says last week was a fluke, he wants another match. JoMo says no. He won the last match and they’ve had several. Why does he need another? Del   Rio holds up the belt… because you want this… JoMo asks Jim Ross, what do you think? Jim says I’d like to see that at Royal Rumble myself. JoMo says then it’s on. Royal Rumble.
– Week 5: JOMO over ZIGGLER. JoMo compliments Ziggler on his loss to Cena last week. Two on one and he still lost. That takes talent to do that. Vicki says that JoMo’s ego is as big as his hair now… JoMo says no Vicki, my ego is about the size as your looks around at her posterior, before Ziggler takes a swipe at JoMo to start the match. Del Rio and Brodus come out in the match. After the match, Del Rio and Brodus beat down JoMo.
– Week 6: Backstage, Del Rio wants Brodus to squash JoMo. Break him so Del Rio can have Royal Rumble off. JOMO over BRODUS without Del Rio at ringside. Then later… After Punk vs Cena… and Del Rio is commanding the troops, JoMo attacks Del Rio!
– PPV: JoMo loses to the mighty Del Rio. This was all about building JoMo to get fed to Del Rio.

HENRY vs BIG SHOW
Why? Because Henry beat Wade Barrett.
– Week 1:  Big Show went over Wade Barrett in the knuckle knockout challenge at the TLC PPV. Teddy Long comes out and proclaims Big Show gets the next title shot against Mark Henry at the Royal Rumble. Henry comes out and asks who has Big Show pinned? This is wrestling, not boxing. Mark Henry wrestles people and wins. He wants to face other men that wrestle people and win. Find me competition Teddy or do I have to start breaking every leg I come across? He starts looking intimidating to Teddy. Big Show comes out and Teddy bails. They have a stare down. They collide. Neither man falls or flinches. Pyro in the ring posts goes off and Kane comes to the ring. Kane who had beat down Henry at the TLC PPV. Kane wants the belt too. Henry backs out of the ring. Teddy Long makes #1 contender match Kane vs Big Show for later tonight! In between now and then… BARRETT over SHEAMUS. Later… BIG SHOW over KANE. Wade Barrett runs down and blatantly attacks Big Show for the DQ. Kane choke slams Wade then Big Show leg drops him. The faces raise their arms in victory.
– Week 2: Wade Barrett comes out and says what he and Big Show started at the TLC PPV isn’t over and his interference last week was calculated. Wade says Kane was a mere casualty of his attack on Big Show. Kane appears. Flames go off.  The two men brawl. Teddy says they’ve got a match tonight and its next. KANE over BARRETT
– Week 3: BIG SHOW over CHRISTIAN and Show then plugs the fact he’s been champion more times than Mark Henry and held the belt longer than Henry. Wade Barrett appears and says but that was in the past, Mark Henry is a champion and you are a big oaf with a lucky punch (at TLC). Barrett would win in a wrestling competition. We’ll see next week. The match is made.
– Week 4: BIG SHOW over WADE BARRETT by DQ when Henry appears to interfere by giving the Big Show some belly-to-belly suplexes and splashes. Wade gets some stomps on Big Show before Kane comes down for the rescue! The heels leave after the damage has been done.
– Week 5: ARM WRESTLING CONTEST >> HENRY vs BIG SHOW and it doesn’t matter who wins. Either way, Henry will end up using the table to beat down Big Show.
– Week 6: Big Show is angry about last week and doesn’t want to wait for the Royal Rumble. He challenges Henry to a match tonight and Henry doesn’t even have to put his title on the line. Henry comes out and says a finely tuned athlete like him needs prep time and refuses the challenge. So Big Show attacks him and it leads to a brawl between Henry & Big Show, neither man falls, but the brawl ends up disappearing backstage.
– PPV: Henry over Big Show to keep the title strong!

NASH vs HHH (and the typical craziness)
– Week 1: HHH is in the arena storming through backstage… He’s on a mission. Some fan in a suit tries to give HHH a piece of paper, but the commentators say he’s got no time for autographs. Later on… HHH returned from the injury to interfere against Nash in his match with Punk. HHH returns to RAW after a 6+ week absence to unleash hell on Nash. He challenges Nash to a match at Royal Rumble. Nash appears… He refuses. That was just business putting HHH on the shelf. You’ve gotta make yourself noticed to get anywhere in the WWE and it’s all about getting to the top and making the most money. HHH goes with his sledgehammer to meet Nash on the stage. Security arrives and HHH destroys them. Then the cops arrive. Why? Nash called them. He has a 500 foot restraining order against HHH after his attack the previous night! HHH has a history of punching men in cuffs. He has anger issues. That fan with the piece of paper was trying to serve HHH with the restraining order.
– Week 2: Nash will be in action tonight!!! HHH has been stricken from the building due to the restraining order. Nash is in the ring, out comes his opponent. NASH destroys SANTINO who parades around the ring, while Nash stands there like a lump. Then Nash boots him in the gut and jackknives him. One foot pin. HHH appears on the Titan tron with a sledge hammer next to some beautiful car that just so happens to be Nash’s. Its more than 500 feet away and everything that Nash bought with his hefty contract… HHH is gonna destroy unless Nash says yes to a match at the Rumble! Yes or no? Nash says no. Then sees his car sledge hammered. Later on Nash can find what was his car and get angry.
– Week 3: Nash isn’t here this week. HHH comes to the ring asks the fans what they thought last week about Nash’s car. You know Nash bought a home with that WWE contract money. Maybe HHH should find a big enough sledge hammer to destroy it or maybe get a tank to blow it up. Just say yes to a match and it will all stop.
– Week 4: NON TITLE >> NASH over RYDER. Nash never gets taken off his feet. Josh Matthews asks Nash what is his answer for HHH to a match at Royal Rumble? Nash powerbombs Matthews.
– Week 5: It is revealed for powerbombing Josh Matthews… Nash is fined quarter of a million dollars. Nash says with his contract, that’s chump change. Nash wants a match and goes to GM John Laurinitus, who makes Punk vs Nash. CM PUNK over NASH who in the match roughed up a referee. After the match, HHH comes on the big screen. He’s outside a very nice house. What was just business to Nash was trying to end HHH’s life and take him from my family and the WWE fans. HHH says the cops won’t make it in time! You and me at Royal Rumble. Yes or no? Nash says yes! Then the camera pulls out to reveal a projected screen of Nash’s house and HHH is in a studio. He then says that’s one of the perks of being WWE COO. He adds that he could fire Nash, but what fun would that be when he can legally kick his ass.
– Week 6: HHH vs Nash has been signed… There is a video highlighting their friendship over the years. HHH’s rise to the top. Nash’s rise to the top 5 years earlier. Sit down interviews with guys talking about who is better in the ring and their tactics. Both guys are straight ahead, but Nash tends to cut corners and cheat. Will the sledge hammer be the equalizer at Royal Rumble? Sit downs with Jim Ross interviewing Nash who calmly says HHH always tries to make things personal… but didn’t Nash make things personal with that attack? Nash would attack whoever the top guy is and from where I sit that’s HHH. Even if they were friends, if it comes down to living in a mansion and making sure his wife and kids drive around in Ferraris, he’d pick that over a friend any day.
– PPV: HHH over Nash. But it won’t end there… It will get worse, because now to Nash it will be personal and he can be a true heel and blame HHH for driving him to such extremes.

SMACKDOWN’S ROYAL RUMBLE (big players: Orton, Wade, Christian, Sheamus)
– Week 1: Orton comes out and says he misses the title around his waist, RKOing everyone that challenged him. Christian appears and says he misses the fame. Sheamus appears and says the great part about the Royal Rumble is a loser like Christian can get a second chance and weasel his way into an opportunity. Wade Barrett comes out to say he looks in that ring and sees 3 has-beens. The Royal Rumble is about crowning a fresh champion at WrestleMania. Look at the long line of worthy contenders who have gone on to win the title on the grandest stage of them all and I will be no different. They all get busy and fight in the ring with Christian and Wade getting sent to the outside. Teddy Long appears to say there’s gonna be a match tonight. SHEAMUS & ORTON vs CHRISTIAN & BARRETT. Sheamus & Orton win when Wade just walks away from his partner. This match is counter productive to him being healthy enough for the title.
– Week 2: CHRISTIAN over GABRIEL. KANE over BARRETT as explained in the Big Show & Henry storyline. Tag team champions Miz and Truth appear on Smackdown. Teddy Long says that last week Orton and Sheamus had a victory over Christian and Barrett. That puts them in line for a shot at the champs. Miz refuses for them. There’s no way they’ll defend the tag team against a team that was just born the previous week at a GM’s whim. Teddy agrees, it doesn’t have to be for the titles, but it does have to be for tonight! ORTON & SHEAMUS over MIZ & TRUTH by DQ when Christian runs in to interfere! Then he escapes before Sheamus & Orton destroy him.
– Week 3: WADE over GABRIEL to get Wade on the winning path again. SHEAMUS over HUNICO. ORTON over JINDER. After Orton’s victory, Sheamus congratulates Orton on his win, Sheamus says they’ll have to thank Christian. Thank Christian? If they won that match next week they’d be well on the way to tag team gold. Both guys don’t want a partner tying them down. Its about their own personal glory and don’t be surprised if I throw you over the top in the Royal Rumble. No don’t be surprised if I throw you over the top… Christian appears and wonders who would win in a match. The Great White or the Viper. One hunts on land, the other on sea. They are both useless in their opponent’s home turf. Orton looks at Sheamus who tells Orton to settle down. Christian is just wondering who would win because he knows who would win if one of them had a match. No matter if Christian faces Sheamus or Orton. He’d lose, because he’s just a weasel. Wade and Cody then attack from behind and beat them down.
– Week 4: BIG SHOW over BARRETT. KANE over JINDER. CHRISTIAN over TATSU. ORTON over BARRETA Baretta and Orton is announced. Barreta goes to Wade and asks him for advice. Wade tells Barreta some tips to defeat Orton, but concludes it by saying never come to me again. SHEAMUS over KIDD. Afterward Cody and Christian both come out, but Sheamus grabs a chair and chases the heels off.
– Week 5: Teddy Long makes: CODY & WADE & CHRISTIAN over ORTON & SHEAMUS. KANE over KIDD. It is announced that there will be a 10 man battle royal next week to determine the #1 and #30 Royal Rumble slots.
– Week 6: Since there are only 10 slots… Teddy Long gives 4 low end guys the chance of a lifetime to get the #30 slot, but only if they make it into the battle royal tonight. Teddy says Yoshi Tatsu, Ted Dibiase Jr, Jinder and Tyson Kidd will all be in singles matches against Orton, Wade, Christian and Sheamus.WADEover DIBIASE. CHRISTIAN over TATSU. SHEAMUS over JINDER. ORTON overKIDD. OVER THE TOP ROPE CHALLENGE >> 10 MAN BATTLE ROYAL (big players: Kane, Orton, Christian, Wade, Cody & Sheamus). The winner gets the #30 slot. The runner up gets the #1 slot. It comes down to Orton vs Wade vs Christian. Christian just takes a dive over the top rope instead of risking the #1 slot. Orton eliminates Cody, Christian throws out Sheamus, Wade throws out Kane and Wade throws out Orton.
– PPV: Orton is first, Wade is last. Cody throws out Orton. Sheamus throws out Christian, Kane lasts a long time as he always does. It comes down to Sheamus & Wade & Cody, Cena & Punk & Ryder.

DANIEL BRYAN’S QUEST FOR THE BRIEFCASE
Daniel Bryan’s briefcase was stolen before TLC. He’s on a quest to get it back.
– Week 1: Bryan is on a quest backstage, who stole his blue briefcase. Everyone is a suspect. Before the show Bryan goes to the time keeper that was holding his stuff. The time keeper looked away for a moment and poof the briefcase was gone. He’s sorry that he can’t be more help. Later Bryan goes to Big Show and says Show tried to buy it, would he just take it? Show points out that if he stole it, he wouldn’t be able to use it, but if he bought it from Bryan he would be able to. Who wouldn’t want Bryan to use the title shot?
– Week 2: Bryan comes out. It’s pretty obvious who doesn’t want him to use his title shot. Mark Henry. He comes out. Don’t think its Henry. He fears no man… little man. Don’t you need to be a heavyweight for this belt? Henry gives Bryan the world’s strongest slam for the trouble. Then he adds time is runing out before Wrestlemania. Christian appears and sits on Bryan. Remember going into the TLC PPV I told you that I’d find your briefcase and bring it? Well I found out a lead. Christian slaps around a weak Daniel Bryan who struggles to his feet. Christian then gives him the kill switch. I want a rematch! Beat me next week and I’ll tell you my lead.
– Week 3: BRYAN over CHRISTIAN via tapout. Bryan keeps the Labell Lock on long enough to hear Christian give up the name Hunico knows who did it!
– Week 4: Bryan goes into WWE gang territory. Hunico’s thug locker room with Primo and the other guy. What does Bryan want? To know who stole the briefcase. What’s it worth? How much money? Bryan says its worth them not paying their hospital bills. Tough talk for one man, but Hunico says they’ve got nothing to hide, some white wrestler wanted to hire them to steal the briefcase, but they didn’t pay well enough, so they said no… and now they didn’t pay well enough to keep their mouths shut so they’re telling Daniel. Now that Bryan knows, how’s he gonna get out of there in one piece? Primo shuts the door and they attack him, beat him down. Sin Cara and Ted Dibiase run in for the save after the job was done.
– Week 5: BRYAN & SIN CARA & TED DIBIASE over HUNICO & PRIMO & OTHER GUY. At least now I know who Hunico is. Bryan goes over Hunico and looks effective while doing it. Sin Cara & Dibiase get beat down and Bryan does the work. Afterward, Bryan sends Hunico’s boys running and Bryan asks Hunico who wanted his briefcase? Hunico says he told Bryan some white guy wrestler. That’s not good enough! Tell Bryan who! Hunico doesn’t know some guy with a gun’s name…
– Week 6: Bryan calls out Trent Barreta. He comes to the ring with a rousing “who is this guy?” or boos. Hopefully boos. Where’s the briefcase? How should Trent know, he’s not a luggage handler. Bryan is really gonna trust Hunico’s word? Bryan says he’s not, but then asking around he found a man with a video from weeks ago. Roll the footage. The big screen shows Trent Barreta and Hunico with his boys looking mean and ugly. Trent says that he has a buyer for the briefcase and that buyer is willing to pay to make sure Daniel Bryan doesn’t get that title shot by WrestleMania. Hunico says whatever Barreta is getting paid, Hunico wants 90%. Baretta refuses and says 50 / 50. Eventually Hunico sends Baretta packing. So that leaves Bryan with the question… Who has the briefcase? Trent gets out of the ring with Bryan chasing him. Trent pushes a cameraman at Bryan and gets away. Teddy Long comes out and says Trent you can get away today, but next week it’s you and Bryan and you’re gonna give up the briefcase or get fired. No amount that you’ve been paid can equal your job here at the WWE.
– PPV: Daniel Bryan gets his hands on Trent Baretta in the Royal Rumble match throws him out, then gets thrown over himself then Bryan goes after Trent who runs!!!

Sorry Dibiase fans, not everyone can get pushed. Next week they get their revenge.
– Week 4: RAW: AIRBOOMover OTUNGA & MCGILLICUTTY. Otunga & McGillicutty get fed to Air Boom. But more interesting after that, Reks & Ryan come down to the ring and destroy Air Boom again! Otunga & McGillicutty bail.

THE STREAK
– PPV: At the Royal Rumble, a video package can roll for Undertaker to appear at WrestleMania (assuming he would want to, it is his career after all).

My Booking Survivor Series 2011 to TLC 2011 and all the weeks between.

WWE Survivor Series is one week away, and the next WWE pay-per-view is WWE TLC (tables ladders and chairs oh my). I will neglect my thoughts on the poor buildup to Survivor Series and say the point of this is to book Survivor Series to TLC. Here we go!

WWE SURVIVOR SERIES
ROCK & CENA over MIZ & TRUTH
I say Cena gets the win, Rock bottom on Cena to close the show. I think that’s what people want to see. Nevermind a heel turn from Cena to beat down the Rock… Fans won’t want to see Rock return and get beat down and Cena just came out with a new shirt, and he needs to sell it. I’d rather he make $$$ for the company.

DEL RIO over PUNK
Punk doesn’t need the belt. Screw job him over. Del Rio is your classic heel. You can have the ring announcer interfere, ref bump, plunder. Anything to keep Punk from getting the belt… if not have the ref wake up when Punk has a chair in his hand and call the match. Orrrrr you can really shock people by having a 30 minute time limit draw.

TEAM BARRETT over TEAM ORTON
It’s the Survivor Series, time for a shakeup. If this was Wrestlemania, I’d say the faces should beat the heels. In this case I say Heels win with Swagger and… other guy getting pinned (who is he?). Cody Rhodes goes over Orton, Christian over Sheamus, Swagger over Kofi, Barrett over Sin Cara and Mason Ryan.

MARK HENRY over BIG SHOW
Keep Henry strong, you didn’t just make him champion after a 4 month build to have him lose the belt. Plus Kane is coming back… just as the Big Show did.

ZACK RYDER over DOLPH ZIGGLER
I’m only thinking this match is on Survivor Series, since Zack Ryder has an online petition to get the title. Seeing as how his videos only get 200,000 views when he’s in the main event of RAW that has 3 million+ viewers… that’s not a positive. Since Survivor Series is at MSG not far from Long Island, Zack wins to make a star. That’s how WWE works sometimes.

>>>>>>>>>

WWE TLC matches and the buildups to them. There are 4 weeks between Survivor Series and TLC.
TLC MATCH >> DEL RIO vs CENA
Why? Cena won his match at the Survivor Series… and so did Del Rio.
How? Cena went over Miz & Truth by himself on RAW, and won the match on Survivor Series… but that won’t be good enough. Punk was screwed. So Punk vs Cena #1 contender. or… both men need to go through someone to get that #1 contender match.
Week 1: Cena won… all hail Cena… he was Rock Bottomed… but since Rock won’t be here, he wants the next biggest fish and that’s the one with the biggest title. Del Rio. Who then comes out and says winning a tag match doesn’t get you a title shot. How about winning some singles matches like he did last night. Punk comes out. He knows he was screwed over. He wants a rematch tonight… GM John Laurenitus comes out, says Punk doesn’t make the matches. It will be Cena vs Punk for the #1 contendership… Cena over Punk. I’m sure we’ve all seen it before…
Week 2: Non title: Alberto Del Rio over Kofi (without Evan). I think having Cena go over guys week after week would be meaningless. Alberto however it would be more competitive because he hasn’t been cemented. John Cena does commentary. After the match there is a scuffle… Brodus Clay rips John Cena out of the chair and destroys him. Puts him through a table and Del Rio applauds!
Week 3: Del Rio appears to introduce his old apprentice, Brodus Clay. Non title: Alberto Del Rio over JoMo. Brodus stands guard with his back the match watching the entryway. Just stand there looking intimidating. After the match, John Cena challenges Brodus to a match next week in order to make sure that he isn’t a factor in his title match.
Week 4: Cena over Brodus Clay. Afterward Del Rio and Brodus destroy Cena.
TLC: Del Rio wins… with help from Brodus of course. It can setup a feud between Brodus and Cena.

CHAIRS MATCH >> MARK HENRY vs KANE
Why? Since Team Orton will lose… Kane returns to get revenge on the man that put him out.
How? Kane can mystery return, flames and all. He can get into Henry’s mind with caskets, fire and so on. Henry ain’t scared. He’s the champ!
Week 1: Henry cleaned out the heavyweight division. He went over Orton, Sheamus, Bryan, Big Show. There’s no one left? Does he need to stack Sin Cara on top of Tyson Kidd to get a heavyweight challenger? Lights go off… crowd pops. Lights go red. Flames jet out of the ring posts. Henry isn’t scared.
Week 2: Henry over Ezekiel Jackson. In the match, the lights go red and Henry still wins. Show yourself Kane! Stop with these games. Henry isn’t scared!
Week 3: Henry over Ted Dibiase Jr. After the match in the celebration, lights go dark. Lights go red with Kane in front of Henry who is dumbfounded. Kane puts his hand on Henry’s neck and Henry bolts from the ring.
Week 4: Teddy Long makes a match for TLC, Henry vs Kane for the heavyweight title. Since Henry injured Kane with a chair, it will be a chairs match! Henry is interviewed about Kane. He’s not scared. He looks forward to putting Kane back on the shelf. Henry and Kane have been around the longest out of anyone, but there’s only one man that has the longevity and that’s Henry.
TLC: Henry over Kane, because Kane will be so motivated to hurt Henry he won’t bother pinning him! After the match Kane will continue to beat Henry!

PUNK vs KEVIN NASH
Why? Kevin Nash needs a debut match and he has history with Punk.
How? Punk loses his #1 contendership… Laurenitus makes the match. Or…. CM could politic, by GTSing the man who put COO on the shelf, Punk would get HHH’s favor… Nash can say the same thing, it’s about getting noticed, that’s why he hospitalized HHH.
Week 1: Nash is ready to wrestle, he wants competition. JoMo is sent out to be slaughtered. We all love JoMo… feed him to Nash. If this was a JoMo vs Nash program, then Nash can get beat.
Week 2: Nash promo… he wants a match. Enter Punk who can respect the fact that Nash took out the COO HHH… But this isn’t about revenge, this is about making sure that big lazy Kevin Nash doesn’t work and take someone’s spot that is more deserving. Nash says its business and when he goes over Punk, he’ll be in the title picture and Punk can go down to the US title or something. Laurenitus sends out security to prevent them from fighting.
Week 3: Punk over McIntyre. Punk wonders where is Nash? GM John Laurenitus answers that Nash missed his flight. So Nash stays home and gets paid, while guys like Punk are wrestling week in and week out.
Week 4: Punk over Swagger. Where’s Nash now? Did he miss his flight? Nash emerges unseed from the crowd, blindsides Punk, powerbombs him. Raises his arms, walks away.
TLC: Punk over Nash when HHH returns.

KO CHALLENGE >> WADE BARRETT vs BIG SHOW
Why? Barrett is on a winning streak and show came back and has momentum.
How? Barrett will tout his winning streak and shun Big Show for losing his title.
Week 1: Big Show needs to get in the title hunt again. Mark Henry refuses him. Show asks Daniel Bryan how much is the money in the bank title shot worth? Show has been wrestling in big time companies. He’s got some coin. $100,000… $200,000…. $500,000? He can’t go one million, his wife would kill him. Wade Barrett scorns Big Show for trying to buy something that he can just take, but even if he took it, he’d fail like he did twice in a row! They brawl.
Week 2: Big Show over Jinder. Wade Barrett over Daniel Bryan (Money in the Bank doesn’t mean you get a year-long push). Show saves Daniel Bryan afterward.
Week 3: Big Show over 3 jobbers (why not?). Wade Barrett over Ezekiel Jackson.
Week 4: Wade Barrett issues a gentleman’s challenge to the big show. They have a KO Challenge on TLC. How novel. They both have 2 wins going into TLC. Wade was a bare knuckle fighter and Big Show has been known to knock people out with his punch.
TLC: Big Show over Barrett. Since a heel has the belt, a face should go over.

SUBMISSION MATCH >> CHRISTIAN vs DANIEL BRYAN
Why? This match had a lot of incarnations… 6 man tag with Orton, Rhodes, Sheamus and so on. But to be honest. I don’t think anyone wants to see those guys again and again. I feel I could make people care about this match.
How? Someone takes the briefcase…
Week 1: Daniel Bryan over Heath Slater. Big Show tries to buy Bryan’s money in the bank title shot. Bryan refuses.
Week 2: Christian wonders why Bryan didn’t sell the title shot to Big Show? Daniel Bryan explains it for the millionth time. Christian mentions having a match for it… Bryan refuses. He went through hell for it. Christian laughs and says you’ll go through hell to keep it. Wade Barrett over Daniel Bryan with interference from Christian.
Week 3: Daniel Bryan over Tyson Kidd… after the match Bryan looks for his briefcase its gone! Who took it? He assumes Christian and beats him senseless. Puts him in the Labell lock and Christian passes out and can’t tell Bryan where he hid it!
Week 4: Christian comes out. He doesn’t know where the briefcase is. If Daniel Bryan agrees to give Christian a shot for that money in the bank at TLC he will find the briefcase for Daniel and bring it to TLC. Teddy Long shows up to amend the match… There will be no tables, ladders or chairs… or DQs or count outs… or pinfalls. It will be a submission match!
