Green Bay, Wisconsin
Results by: Mike Tedesco of Wrestleview.com
“Then. Now. Forever.” The WWE video leads us into the show.
The show kicks off with a video of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon stripping Daniel Bryan of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in absentia on this past Monday’s RAW. McMahon then announced a WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match for the Money in the Bank PPV. So far, Randy Orton, Alberto Del Rio, Cesaro, and Sheamus have qualified to be in the match. Triple H guaranteed that there would be a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion at Money in the Bank.
The Smackdown video plays, and we see a shot of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship hanging high above the ring. Michael Cole and JBL welcome us to the show.
The Shield’s music hits, and Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns make their way to the ring through the crowd. Footage is shown of The Shield and John Cena defeating The Wyatt Family this past Monday on RAW. Triple H had said earlier in the night that The Shield would be destroyed. Ambrose says he doesn’t need to tell the crowd what they already know. What The Authority is trying to do is clear as day. Ambrose asks Triple H if he thinks he’s stacked the cards against him. Ambrose says they’re going to flip the table over and go for his throat. As for the “puppet suit” guy, Seth Rollins, he’s shutting down the Seth Rollins business for good.
Roman Reigns takes the microphone, and Ambrose says Reigns has a message for another spineless, corporate stooge. Reigns says he hopes Randy Orton is enjoying his night off because when he gets his hands on him, he’ll want a permanent vacation. Orton thinks he’s the face of the WWE, but he’s the ass. Orton is also a spoiled little kid who gets whatever he wants from his daddy, Triple H. Orton didn’t even qualify for the championship match – he was just handed the opportunity like everything else. Everybody wants to be WWE Champion, and who knows – maybe he or Dean will beat him to it.
Triple H appears on the titantron. He says there are only so many slots available to qualify for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match. He only really has one qualifying slot available and there are two of them. That seems unfair. There seems only one fair way to decide who gets the shot, so he holds up a quarter. Triple H flips the quarter, and he congratulates Dean Ambrose for getting the opportunity to qualify for the ladder match tonight. Triple H uses his congratulations rather loosely because he’ll be going against Bray Wyatt tonight. He knows how The Shield likes to do things together, so he’s banning Reigns from ringside. He’s also banning The Wyatt Family from ringside as well. Triple H then tells Ambrose to clear the ring because he’s banned from ringside for Reigns’ match, which is next. Triple H then imitates a British accent as he says, “I’ve got some bad news for ya.”

The Wyatt Family’s video flashes on the screen, and then we see Erick Rowan in the sheep mask. Bray Wyatt says when he was a child he was a dreamer. He dreamed of glory and a nice house up on a hill with a white picket fence. He dreamed of happiness, but then he woke up and realized he’s still in a prison, this rotten world, until he met her. She said he didn’t have to be a dreamer anymore. She said he would achieve everything he ever dreamed of and more. She said he would change the world. They will chant his name and fear his hand. They will bow to him. Wyatt says he finds himself in a predicament. Above that ladder lies his absolution, happy ending, and power. Unfortunately for Dean Ambrose, he stands in his way. Those who stand in his way will burn. Those who walk beside him shall be reborn. Follow the buzzards.

Today, June 13 officially marks six years to the day with Wrestleview.com. I know I mentioned it in my RAW Recap, but I think because it’s the actual day that it needs to be said again. I started back in 2008, and the first match I covered was Finlay vs. John Morrison. In the main event that evening, Batista defeated The Great Khali in a match where Batista’s career was on the line. Luckily, the show has gotten a lot better through the years. It’s actually funny for me to go back and look at some of those old recaps. I really got a kick out of the part of my “Mike’s Thoughts” section where I said Matt Hardy was going to achieve main event status. What a fool I was back them. So young, so silly. It’s nice to be involved in something that you truly love for a number of years now, and to work with great people makes it even better. This site is full of awesome people who work their butts off to bring you the greatness we’ve come to expect from this website. To them, I say thank you, particularly Adam Martin, who I hung out with in Miami back in 2012 for WrestleMania 28. Adam is a madman, and he’s one hell of a guy. A big thank you also goes out to the readers of my recaps, particularly the ones who have provided me with some great feedback through the years, both positive and negative. I remember one guy who e-mailed me and told me I use too many exclamation points in my recap. He told me that while reading it he was getting a headache because he felt he had to read it in a screaming voice in his head. I looked, and son of a bitch if I wasn’t using a ton of damn exclamation points. I now try to use them sparingly, only to accentuate things that I feel really need one. A headlock takeover does not need one. Probably the best piece of criticism I’ve ever gotten. Anyway, thanks people. It’s been great, and I’m looking forward to many more. I still love it.
