WWE Fantasy: Friday Night SmackDown 12/30
This is the 11th edition of Fantasy Friday Night SmackDown.
For those who are not up to date yet, check out the 10th episode here.
For those further behind, I will post a full list of episodes at the end of the article to help those who missed a week.
Remember to rate the show at the end out of 10, i.e. "8/10," as this is a competition of SmackDown (Kevin Berge) vs. Raw (Will Owen). Also, there will be voting details at the end of the show that pertain to the next Fantasy PPV for those who have not yet voted.
Now, on to the show.
The intro rolls, then we are treated to a recap for last week.
Tony Chimel: "The following match is a battle royal to crown the new No. 1 contender for the WWE Championship."
All the men in the ring immediately go at for their shot with short clips shown of each elimination.
The video slows at the final five with Curt Hawkins, Tyler Reks, John Cena, Christian, and Dolph Ziggler remaining.
The action between the stars is shown in highlights until Hawkins and Reks are eliminated in quick succession.
With only three men remaining, just as Christian eliminates Cena, Ziggler comes in and wins by taking out Christian.
Ziggler stands tall as the new No. 1 contender. Green Day then plays.
As the crowd is shown, the titantron immediately lights up, and we head to a direct view of the full screen. The Rock stands front and center as the crowd goes wild.
Rock: "John Cena...after months away, The Rock is standing here again to address you. You would think that the Rock had said it all, but no, The Rock must admit Cena that you have...changed over the past few weeks. Oh yes, you still put think nobody can see you and you still carry around that goofy grin whenever you make a joke that nobody but a two-year-old would laugh at.
"However, you don't look like a Fruity Pebble, you don't wrestle less like an uncoordinated monkey and you are starting to act like a man. But don't like Cena that you can impress the Rock. Oh no! You could come out to that ring, act like a tough guy and try and talk me down, and you would still just be a jabroni who has no talent.
"But after all the horrible movies, after all the wretched attempts to be cool, The Rock sees that you have finally just given up, and it suits you, John Cena. No more trying; you have realized the simple truth...that the Rock is simply better than you. You may not admit it, John Cena, but The Rock knows when a man has just given up.
"In the end, John Cena, it won't matter because I'm coming, and I will bring it. You can bet that I will put a boot to your Fruity Pebble-eating, non-talented ass. Next time for the millions...I will be on SmackDown to face you, and it doesn't matter when or where. All that matters is that The Rock is going to bring it. If you smell...what the Rock is cooking."
The video ends with the people going crazy. As they begin to die out, a mixed reaction comes over the crowd as Dolph Ziggler makes his way out to the ring.
Opening Segment Continued
He enters the ring with microphone in hand.
Ziggler: "I don't care what the Rock had to say before I came out here. He's not here, so he doesn't matter to me. What I am here to talk about is my new No. 1 contendership. I am the next challenger to CM Punk going forward, but I have said before, and I will say it again: Before I face Punk, I want John Cena one on one.
"I am a former World Champion for those who forget, and I never get the respect I deserve. To become the best, you have to beat the best, and that includes Cena. Punk is next on the list, but I am not skipping anyone on this list, so Cole, get out here and grant me my match."
Instead of Michael Cole, The Miz hits the ring to a chorus of boos. He looks annoyed as he holds his personalized microphone in hand.
Miz: "Bravo, Ziggler. You won a battle royal. That's impressive stuff, but really, you should have never become No. 1 contender from that. The only reason you won was because I was not booked for the match due to serious injuries I suffered at the hands of Punk. He and I have unfinished business. He beat me once, which was a fluke due to a stupid cut on my forehead. We all know I had him beaten.
"So you need to stop calling for everything and start worrying about holding onto the one thing you stole from me."
Before Ziggler can respond, John Cena arrives. He makes his way down to the ring and grabs a mic, entering the ring.
Cena: "It seems everybody is looking for me, so here I am. Ziggler, you don't need Cole to book this match. I'm right here. Rock, you can talk all you want. Get here and then I'll answer you face to face. Miz, you lost just as I did to Punk, and I want one more rematch as much as you do. Ziggler, if you put your No. 1 contender shot on the line, I will face you any time and anywhere."
Ziggler looks to respond again, but this time, Cole comes out to interrupt proceedings.
Cole: "Can I have attention, please? Ziggler, as much as it pains me to say it, you earned your shot at Punk; however, in honor of the new year and as a treat to these fans, you will be facing Punk next week instead of at the Royal Rumble. If you win, you will be champion. If you lose, you will have go to the back of the line again.
"Now, all three of you have a match that you want to occur, and I feel in a giving mood, so I will grant you each a chance to get that match in a triple threat. The winner gets whatever opponent they want in a match of their choosing in the next month.
"So, Cena and Miz, you may choose to face Punk as late as Royal Rumble if you wish in any match type. Ziggler, you end up reconsidering and choosing to also face Punk, but you will also be able to face Cena if you win tonight. Good luck to all three of you."
Cole walks off as the competitors stare each other down, and we go to commercial break.
Match 1: Sin Cara Azul vs. Sin Cara Negro

Sin Cara Negro's music hits as we return. He makes his usual entrance and waits for his rival to enter.
Sin Cara Azul hits the ring, but, as he jumps into the ring, catches him with a stiff boot to the skull. Azul is on the ground from the shot, and Negro stomps on him.
He then hits Negro with a Argentine lift Samoan Drop, and then he hits a senton bomb on Azul.
With Azul still down, Negro goes to grab a microphone. He stands over Azul as he speaks his mind.
Negro: "Each week, I come out here and take you out, demonio enmascarado, yet each week, you keep making the same errores estupidos. I am Sin Cara, and I am done with you. No matches, no more back-and-forth combate. You will sit in the back and fade away while I take the spotlight.
"Because I deserve it. You have had the lights shone brightly upon for muchos años after stealing my name and my identity. It is past the time where you are considered great. No longer Mistico, so no longer mi competitdor."
Negro drops the microphone and walks out. No one is sure what to make of it all as we cut to backstage.
Backstage Segment: Richie Steamboat

Backstage, Lillian Garcia is with Richie Steamboat.
Garcia: "Richie, this is your first interview since coming up to main roster. How do you feel about this whole experience so far and going forward?"
Steamboat: "My father represented this company for years. He brought action, excitement and a sense of true uniqueness. I want to bring that same feeling. I debuted going after gold, and, as any other superstar will tell you, that is always the ultimate goal. Christian, I respect you, and that's why I shook your hand last week; however, I'm still going after that championship..."
Christian walks in and grabs the microphone away from Steamboat.
Christian: "You aren't your old man. He was a legend that made gold out of dirt without carrying any championships. I shook your hand last week to get a sense of your true character, and I saw that you are not Rickie Steamboat. You don't have that flair and fire."
Steamboat: "I never pretended to be my father. I am my own superstar, and I will prove it next time we meet."
Christian: "You have to earn that next shot, kid. You're still a rookie in my yard. Good luck."
Christian walks away as Steamboat looks on, and we go to commercial break.
Match 2: Daniel Bryan vs. ?
Daniel Bryan comes out to a good reaction with determination in his eyes. We are shown clips from last week with Kurt Angle saying that he has one last test for Bryan before they can compete again. As Bryan gets in the ring, Angle comes out to a mixed reaction.
Angle: "Daniel, you want to face me at the Royal Rumble. I accept again, but you must beat the opponent I have brought here for you. He is a legend in the business and a man I have worked with for years. If you can beat him, perhaps you can beat me. Let me introduce, the one, the only, Charismatic Enigma, Jeff Hardy."
Jeff Hardy comes out to a huge reaction. He is dressed up in his typical gear with white face pain. Bryan is taken a bit aback by the presence of Hardy as Hardy enters the ring. The bell rings as Bryan is still off guard.
Jeff and Bryan lock up with Hardy throwing Bryan to the ground. Bryan rises, and Hardy goes right at him with punches. Bryan backs into the corner, and Hardy lets up. He motions for Bryan to come at him. Bryan seems reluctant. Bryan stares down Hardy and then slowly makes his way over to Hardy.
This time, they lock up. Bryan gains the advantage, taking Hardy down with a headlock. He holds down Hardy as he looks over toward an emotionless Angle. Bryan tries to further extend the pressure as he repositions himself into a camel clutch.
Hardy is in pain as Bryan wrenches, but Hardy makes it to the ropes. A slow confidence is starting to show on Bryan's face. He grabs Hardy's leg as Hardy attempts to rise, and he seems poised to slap on another submission hold, but Hardy hits him with a spinning mule kick, which knocks Bryan out of the ring.
Bryan gets up a bit fazed only to be met by a suicide dive from Hardy. Bryan is laid out, and Hardy motions to the crowd before picking Bryan up and setting him in the ring with his head dangling of the apron. Hardy then gets on the apron hitting a leg drop on a downed Bryan.
Bryan rolls fully into the ground while Hardy gets back in. Bryan gets up. Hardy kicks him only for Bryan to catch it. He throws Hardy onto his back with a dragon screw legwhip. With Hardy down, Bryan has enough time to lock in an Indian deathlock.
Hardy is crying out in pain as Bryan keeps the move synched in. He looks ready to tap out, but he holds on. He slowly inches his way to ropes and forces a break. We go to a commercial break as Hardy tries to rise.
Daniel Bryan vs. Jeff Hardy Continued

As we return, Bryan has Hardy up for a surfboard. He eventually lets up and goes to the top rope. He goes for a diving headbutt with Hardy ducking out of the way at the last second. Hardy is able to get to his feet first after the blow and hits a big running European uppercut.
Hardy then hits a sitout inverted suplex slam and goes to the top rope. He goes for a double leg drop and hits it. He covers for a long two count. Hardy helps Bryan up then throws him into the corner, which causes Bryan to fall into a sitting position.
Hardy goes for his Hardyac Arrest dropkick, but Bryan rolls out of the way, causing Hardy to go feet first into the steel post. He lands rough on the mat and pulls himself to the corner. He tries to rise as Bryan gets back in the ring.
Hardy is on his feet, and Bryan hits a running big boot on him, still in the corner. Bryan goes to the top rope as Hardy rises. Bryan hits a missile drop kick and then plays to the crowd. Hardy gets up to a sitting position with Bryan hitting a series of kicks, finishing with a sharp one to the skull.
He covers for a long two count. Bryan pulls Hardy up for a German suplex. He hits a bridging one for a two count then pulls Hardy up for a belly-to-belly. This time, he gets caught by Hardy, who battles out and hits a sitout jawbreaker.
Hardy goes to the top and signals for the Swanton Bomb. The crowd goes wild for a picture perfect hit. He covers: ...1...2...kick out at the very last second.
Hardy looks incredibly surprised looking toward the entrance ramp, where Angle also shows emotion with some surprise. Hardy questions the referee's count, and he turns around into Bryan, who pulls Hardy in for the LaBell Lock.
Hardy holds on long enough to get himself to the ropes as Bryan is frustrated. Bryan hits a standing Hardy with European uppercut, which causes Hardy to fall back toward the ropes. As Hardy rebounds, Bryan hits a roaring elbow for a two count.
Bryan goes to the back of Hardy and snaps on the cattle mutilation. Hardy looks ready to tap, but he edges his feet under the bottom rope, breaking the count. Bryan looks visibly tired and annoyed with all his submissions not helping eke out the win.
He looks over at Kurt Angle, who looks to slowly be showing some emotion with further surprise. Bryan still can't smile about that victory, as the match is still on. Hardy is getting to his feet as Bryan goes at him with punches. The referee forces a break.
The referee lets up as Hardy is on his feet. Bryan comes at him with Hardy catching him with a stiff kick. He throws Bryan toward the far corner. Hardy follows his whip, but Bryan run up the turnbuckle and does a backflip. He lands behind Hardy.
Bryan bounces off the ropes as Hardy turns around with Bryan going for a clothesline. Hardy catches him with a stiff kick going for the Twist of Fate. As he flips Bryan onto his shoulder, Bryan pulls out and grabs Hardy from the back. He hits the dragon suplex and pins Hardy. He gets the three count.
Tony Chimel: "The winner of this match, Mr. Money in the Bank Daniel Bryan." (Time of contest: 13:30)
The crowd goes wild as Bryan stares down Angle, who cracks a small smile. Angle has a microphone.
Angle: "Bravo, you win, and you proved to me that you can get it done against a seasoned veteran. So Royal Rumble you've got me, but remember who you're facing. Don't be so cocky, kid. I'm still the wrestling machine, the Olympic gold medalist, and a five-time World Champion in this company. Oh, it's true, it's damn true."
He drops the mic and walks off as Bryan is still in the ring, and we cut to commercial.
In-Ring Segment: Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks
Image Courtesy of: wwetna.tumblr.com
We return to Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks coming out to the ring. Hawkins grabs two microphones as they both enter the ring. Hawkins hands one to Reks, and Hawkins starts.
Hawkins: "You people don't give us our due. The WWE doesn't give us our due. When two men make into the top five in a No. 1 contender's battle royal, they should be talent that has been given championship shots. Do you know the combined total of championship contests Reks and I have competed in in the past three years? Zero.
"Neither of us are given a single chance at a championship, whether it be tag team or singles gold. We are the only team on SmackDown that has yet to be defeated, yet the 'Fortunate Americans' are the ones pining for gold. I would be fine with that if I could even get a chance against the Intercontinental Champion, but no."
Reks: "Last week, I almost won the battle royal alongside Hawkins here, and I pushed the Money in the Bank winner, Daniel Bryan, to his limit. What else have we done lately? We have broken Santino and Zack Ryder. I personally took out the Big Show, who is still out with a concussion. So, where are our opportunities? Why do we have to stand out here and demand a shot that we have already earned?"
Hawkins: "None of you have any respect for us, but that is nothing in comparison to the lack of respect we get each and every week from those men backstage. It may seem like Michael Cole's fault, but we can look back further. Someone is holding us back. My bet is Triple H because he's scared..."
Zack Ryder hits the ring to a raucous ovation, and the look on his face is not his usual grin. He looks cold and angry at both men. He has a microphone in his hand, and he lets them have it.
Ryder: "You two are good. I admit that. You say you broke me, but I'm still standing. Hawkins, we used to be bros, the closest of friends. Now, you stand up there, and I don't recognize you anymore. That's okay, though, because it makes what I'm going to do to you easier. Next week, I bring a friend, and we will take you two down. No games, no fun, you will both be beaten.
"Woo, woo, woo, you know it."
Hawkins and Reks in the ring seem unfazed as Ryder stands and stares coldly at them from the entrance. We head to commercial break.
Match 3: Maryse vs. Tamina
Image Courtesy of: wwedivas4u.com
Tamina makes her way out to the ring. As she does, we are treated to a recap of last week where the Divas finally came face to face with their attackers: Death Rey and Kharma.
Maryse come out next with a cocky and confident grin. The two women stare down and lock up at the bell.
Tamina uses her size and strength to gain an early advantage on Maryse with strong slams and a sharp headlock. After a minute or so, Maryse is able to battle back and get in a few hard shots to Tamina. She pulls out a Russian leg sweep then latches on a camel clutch.
Tamina eventually gets out and hits a headbutt taking Maryse down. She is taunting Maryse, looking for a slam when a voice is heard over the speakers.
Rey: "Wow, wow, wow, I can't stand it any longer. This needs to stop."
Death Rey comes out with Kharma at her back. She has a microphone in hand and continues.
Rey: "Wrestling like that may be good enough for you girls to get a paycheck, but no one really wants to see a rookie and a model of your class wrestle like this. It is embarrassing. I can't stand idle as these fans die of boredom or take up drinking to pass the time.
"Kharma here will not be able to compete for the next months or so, but I am here to wrestle and destroy each and every one of you in real matches. Sure, they will be one sided, but I promise that at least I will pull out some real wrestling. So next week, Maryse, you can be my first example."
Rey leaves as both girls stand shocked in the ring. Neither looks sure if they should continue wrestling. We cut to commercial break as the weapon look absolutely unable to even move.
Match 4: Santino Marella vs. Brodus Clay
Image Courtesy of: phenommark.xanga.com
Santino Marella comes out as we return. He seems to lack his usual flair in his step. He gets in the ring and almost just stands there.
Brodus Clay comes out with a grin, as what little confidence showed on Santino's face before vanishes. Clay gets in the ring and stares down Santino, who backs up into his own corner until the bell rings.
Santino can barely get in a punch before he is squashed by Clay. He takes huge clotheslines and a big back body drop. As Santino tries to rise, Brodus hits a running crossbody.
He plays with Santino by not covering or using any rest holds. Santino cannot pull out any offense as Clay sets Santino for his finisher, a fisherman buster. However, as he gets Santino up, Santino slips out of the move.
Santino pulls out a series of rights and lefts on Clay, then hitting Clay with an STO for barely a two count. With the crowd behind him, Santino gets pumped up. He hits a running headbutt drop then gets ready for the Cobra. As Clay rises, Santino pauses.
His face plays a complex series of emotions, and he drops the Cobra. He doesn't know what to do. As he hestitates, Clay come in with a huge spinebuster then hits Santino with a corner body avalanche as Santino pulls himself into the corner.
Brodus picks up Santino with Santino getting enough leverage to get a roll up for two count. An angry Clay beats on Santino and then hits the fisherman buster for three.
Tony Chimel: "The winner of this match, Brodus Clay." (Time of contest: 4:45)
As Clay stands over Santino, expressions play plentifully over Santino's face. Fear, sadness and frustration all lead his thoughts. As we head to commercial break, Santino barely can get to his feet.
Backstage Segment: Jeff Hardy
Image Courtesy of: wrestlearena.blogspot.com
Hardy is walking around backstage, and he meets up with Angle.
Angle: "Thank you again for helping me out. Sorry your return turned into a loss, but I gave you a tough match."
Hardy: "Watch out for that kid. He is something special. We've both faced many legends, but I'm not sure I've ever encountered someone quite like him. He's tough."
Angle: "I know. I beat him once, but he's gotten much better even if I won't admit it directly to him yet. Thanks again."
The two shake hands, and Hardy walks off.
As he makes his way out, he stops to greet a few employees in WWE both wrestlers and workers he had worked with previously. The camera moves to the ring as we get ready for the main event.
Main Event: The Miz vs. John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler: Winner Gets Match of Choice
Image Courtesy of: hakeem786.blogspot.com
The Miz comes out first to a huge negative reaction, taunting the crowd as he makes his way down.
Dolph Ziggler comes out next to a mixed reaction completely focused, ignoring the crowd.
John Cena comes out last to a strong mixed reaction sliding straight into the ring for his usual entrance.
Before any of the men can start, CM Punk hits the ring with his WWE Championship on his shoulder. The crowd goes crazy as he stares down all three men in the ring and then goes down the ramp to the announce table. He picks up a headset.
Matt Striker: "CM Punk, what an honor to have the WWE Champion here at ringside with us. We haven't heard from you all night, so I hope I'm not to bold in asking right away: What is happening with you and Dean Ambrose?"
Punk: "Well, Matt, if I had anything for you, I would tell you. He has been effectively silent. Now, can we get onto the match?"
The bell has already rung, with Miz outside watching as Ziggler and Cena take it to each other. Miz comes over to Punk and taunts him. Punk stands up and blasts back.
Punk: "Oh, really, Miz? Are you sure you should even be here? Bet you've never bled that much in your life. Sure, you shouldn't be resting at home. Wouldn't want to let out too much hot air."
Cena grabs Ziggler and hits fisherman suplex for a one count. He then synches in a headlock, which he applies with force adding in a leglock around the abdominal region. He pressures Ziggler for about a minute while Miz watches on the outside.
Cena releases the move as Miz tries to enter the ring. Miz quickly rethinks his move with Cena moving toward Miz. Ziggler comes from behind for a quick crucifix pin. Miz runs in to try to stop it, though Cena kicks out at two.
Miz is still in the ring with both men up. He goes for a double clothesline only for both men to catch him. They bring him down with a double flapjack. They then lock up again as Miz rolls back out of the ring.
Miz looks annoyed as both men try to one up each. Cena hits a spinebuster for Ziggler to answer back with a dropkick. A bulldog by Cena equals a swinging neckbreaker by Ziggler. Finally, Cena think he has the upper hand with a series of shoulder blocks and goes for the Five Knuckle Shuffle.
When he comes off the ropes, Ziggler is up and hits an impressive inverted scoop powerslam for a two count. He then goes for a leg-drop bulldog to a rising Cena, who catches Ziggler on his shoulders and dumps him out of the ring.
Miz comes from behind on Cena grabbing him and hitting his combination of an inverted facelock backbreaker and a neckbreaker slam. He covers for two. As Cena gets to his knees, Miz goes for a snap DDT only for Cena to push him off.
Cena hits a running Miz with a dropkick and then makes his way toward the apron. As he gets his head and leg outside of the ropes above the apron, Ziggler jumps onto the apron and hits a bicycle kick. Cena falls to the mat, and Ziggler gets into the ring as the only man standing. We cut to commercial.
The Miz vs. John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler Continued
Image Courtesy of: break.com
We return with Ziggler taking down Cena with a double-knee gutbuster. He goes for the pin and gets two. As he continues, a replay is shown of how Miz was taken out during the commercial break. He was thrown to the outside by Ziggler, but landed on his feet only to take a running clothesline from Cena.
Punk on commentary is still talking with the two commentators about his possible opponents.
Punk: "Well, they are all good performers that will be a challenge to face one on one for this title. Cena and I have each other scouted to a tee at this point, but I always pull the win at the end against him. Miz almost had me at Night of Champions, and I got lucky that he loves to use his mouth more than his fists. Ziggler, I don't know much about."
Matthews: "So would you say you are most worried about Ziggler because you don't know him and his weaknesses yet?"
Punk: "You know, there is always a first time. Anyway, I can't avoid that match. We face next week, and I will have to be as ready as I can be."
Striker: "What do you make of Ziggler's obsession with facing Cena? He may have saved you title once in that pursuit, and now he might lose a rematch possibly just to wrestle Cena if he wins this match."
Punk: "It's admirable. He is a competitor, looking to prove himself. It might seem crazy to most people even other wrestlers, but I see the appeal of wanting to prove your words."
Ziggler is on the top rope, but Cena catches him. He goes for a superplex only for Miz to come in from behind. He runs across the apron and undercuts Cena leg that is up on the top rope. Cena is still holding Ziggler who lands awkwardly on top of Cena. Miz breaks up the pinfall.
He throws Ziggler out of the ring and stomps on Cena. He pulls Cena up and tries to hit the Skull Crushing Finale. Cena uses his arm strength to break out of the full nelson and grab Miz. He hits Miz with a spin-out powerbomb for two.
He then goes for the five knuckle shuffle and hits it. He gets Miz up for the AA, but Miz elbows out and hits a snapmare driver for another two count. Miz then goes for a swinging inverted DDT, but Cena pushes him off into the corner.
Cena starts hammering on Miz in the corner, and the referee pulls him off. Cena backs up then runs toward a cornered Miz as the ref backs away. Miz, sensing his surroundings, grabs the referee, who takes the full force of Cena's splash in the corner as Miz ducks out of the way.
With the referee down, Miz sees his opportunity and goes to get a steel chair. He gets in the ring, and Punk runs in to stop him. The referee is getting to his feet as Miz tries to hit Punk with the chair. The referee sees Punk with the chair and pulls it out of his hands.
Then, much to the chagrin of Punk and the fans, the referee forces Punk to go to the back. As he makes his way to the back, Miz and Cena are staring down. Ziggler comes in with all three ready for anything.
Ziggler and Miz go after Cena beating him into the corner. As Ziggler looks satisfied, Miz comes from behind for the Skull Crushing Finale. An annoyed Ziggler fights out and hits Miz with a superkick. As he goes to cover, Cena breaks up the count.
Ziggler and Cena fight back and forth, with Ziggler hitting a bridging German suplex for a long two count. As Cena stands up, Ziggler hits a neck snap for another long two. Ziggler seems poised for a finisher when Miz comes in for a quick roll up. He only gets two.
All three men are up again. Ziggler and Cena hit a double snap suplex on Miz, then Cena picks Ziggler up for an AA. Ziggler fights out and hits the Zig Zag. He goes to cover. Miz pulls Ziggler off and hits the Skull Crushing Finale. He pins Cena instead of Ziggler and gets the three.
Tony Chimel: "The winner of this match and now entitled to a match of his choosing, The Miz." (Time of contest: 20:05)
After the action, Miz slips out of the ring, holding his arm up in victory. As the show is about to end, Striker has an urgent message.
Striker: "I am getting this latest information in. Something has just happened backstage that has caused quite the commotion. I cannot get specifics, so we are going to cut to backstage."
Image Courtesy of: wfigs.proboards.com
We are shown backstage. There is a large congregation of WWE star as the camera pans over the scene.
The camera man gets to the front of the commotion as we find medical staff checking on Jeff Hardy.
He seems to be completely out, so one of them signals to another. They come in with a stretcher. Kurt Angle fights his way to the front and starts shouting.
Angle: "Who did this? You cannot make me believe that this entire crowd was all here only after the attack. I need names; otherwise, people are going to start getting hurt. I brought Jeff in to help me one time not as a young star's target."
CM Punk pushes his way through Daniel Bryan and Santino to face Angle.
Punk: "What happened here? I was just watching the end of the main event backstage after getting kicked out. Is someone hurt?"
Angle walks straight up to me and stares him down.
Angle: "Yes, Punk, Jeff Hardy is being wheeled out on a stretcher. You know anything about it? If I remember, didn't you end his career in WWE originally?"
Punk: "Hey, back up. I didn't do anything."
Angle: "Really? You got proof?"
Angle gets right in Punk's face, and they start fighting as the entire locker room slowly tries to separate them. With Punk and Angle ready to kill each other, the show ends.
And the Credits Roll!
And that's the end.
Tune in next week to find out the implications of this mysterious attack on Jeff Hardy. Also, check out the huge main event championship match, as Punk must defend his title against a hungry and dangerous Ziggler.
