Footage from last week’s Monday Night Raw was shown where John Cena came out and said that Mr. McMahon came out last week and said that this Survivor Series would be the most epic in history, because it would not be just any other Survivor Series, there would be Team Authority vs. Team Cena whether the stipulation was, if team Authority lost, they would be out of power.
Cena said that the problem was, the authority did not want Cena to have a team. They knew that their job is in jeopardy, and they were trying to stop everyone from joining team Cena, for them, they knew it would be a death sentence if anybody would join team Cena. Even Zack Ryder was being prevented from joining team Cena. He tweeted earlier that he wanted to join team Cena, and now he was having a surgery and out for six months.
Cena continued as he said that Randy Orton tried to stand against the authority for team Cena which everybody saw, and what happened for that, the authority destroyed Randy Orton and they would not be seeing Randy Orton for a while.
Cena said that he still had two players in his side who did not listen to authority’s crap John Cena, the authority tried to convince the, by different means but they did not listen to the Authority. The first superstar of those two was the former World Heavyweight champion Jack Swagger, whom the Authority conveniently put in a match with Seth Rollins. The other superstar was the current Intercontinental champion Dolph Ziggler. The fans chanted ‘We Want Ziggler.’ Cena said that if the fans wanted Ziggler they would get him but he had to deal with Triple H and the authority.
Cena said that he had those two, the Authority took everybody else away. But there was one guy who was not afraid of anybody, actually, he was a not a man, he was a monster. He showed up two weeks ago and destroyed every single on his path, as a matter of fact, he was Cena’s opponent on the main event of that night. The fans chanted ‘Feed Me More.’ Cena said that they were going to have a hell of a fight on that night for sure, and before they go head to head later on that night, he would like to call him out so they could discuss things a little bit.
Ryback came out to the arena. He entered the ring and said the big guy was back. Before he could continue, the authority came out to the arena. Mark Henry accompanied them who was now confirmed to be a member of the team Authority. Both John Cena and the authority wanted Ryback to join their teams. Triple H guaranteed Ryback future whether John Cena tempted him to have fan support. Ryback said that the big guy was not afraid of the authority, and he did not see John Cena’s name on the paycheck of the big guy. He hit a spine buster on John Cena just after he said that.
On the main event of the show, John Cena defeated Ryback by disqualification when Kane came inside and attacked Cena. Kane and Ryback started arguing. Seth Rollins came out and tried to calm them down. Ryback hit Seth as Kane kicked Ryback right into the face. Mark Henry, Rusev, Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury came out and attacked Cena. Sheamus came out to help Cena, he started beating everyone them he was choke slammed by Kane. Big Show came out next, he also knocked out everyone but got taken down by Seth Rollins. Ryback came inside now and knocked out everyone, he ended up with a Shell Shocked on Kane and left the arena.
Backstage Triple H and Stephanie McMahon watching it on the TV, suddenly, Dolph Ziggler was thrown near them cold. Luke Harper was seen standing, he said ‘I am a Team Player!’ The Show went off air.
The show started on Liverpool, England as Y2J Chris Jericho entered the arena for the Highlight reel. The Merseysiders gave him a standing ovation. Jericho entered the ring and started in his vintage style, ‘Liverpool! Welcome to Smackdown is Jericho!’
Jericho said that he had been looking for a couple of months for a number of things, and there were a few things he needed to address, the first thing he wanted to know was the identity of the Bunny of Adam Rose, Jericho thought the Bunny was really cool. He made the fans laugh by saying he thought that the guy might be Funaki. The fans chanted the name of Jericho, Jericho said that it might be the first ever Funaki chant of WWE.
Secondly, Jericho said that he knew if team authority loses at Survivor Series they would stripped of power forever, so he wanted to introduce the guests of the highlight Reel ‘power hungry’ couple, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
Triple H and Stephanie McMahon came out to the arena. Jericho said that they did not need to have any introduction so he asked a straight forward; why did they want Jericho to arrange the highlight on that night. Stephanie said that the question would be why they invited Chris Jericho to Smackdown. She asked how long had it been since Smackdown had the highlight reel, how long would it be since Chris Jericho had been in Liverpool. She said that it was because they gave the WWE Universe what they actually wanted and in all seriousness they wanted to have fun with the fans.
She kept on saying that the fans deserved wrestlers whom they could actually respect. Ironically, her father was doing the thing to them exactly they were doing the locker room; making superstars and divas fought for what they believed in. Daniel Bryan had been out for months but they still chant ‘yes’ because Bryan overcame the odds and they revere him for that.
Stephanie then asked where Daniel Bryan would be without the authority. He made some comparisons and said where would Superman be without Lex Luthor, where would Sun be without the moon, where would WWE be without a McMahon in charge and who could possibly run WWE except the authority.
Jericho quickly replied that he could run the WWE. He said that he liked what John Cena said on Monday Night Raw, the authority did not need to run the WWE, the WWE Universe would run the WWE. Jericho said that it was really easy, they ask a question to the fans they would answer in ‘yes’ or ‘no’. He gave a trial on it as he asked the fans if they were running the WWE, would they want to see Triple H licked Jericho’s boots and cleaned his shoes. The fans chanted ‘yes’ loudly. He kept making fun of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. He showed the footage where Stephanie was thrown into the mud by Vickie Guerrero. He asked the fans if they wanted to see that again.
Triple H stopped him. He said that it was not funny, he never needed Jericho acceptance, they did not need anybody’s acceptance. He said ‘The Wolf does not asked to be embraced by sheep.’ He wanted Jericho to enjoy his laugh, because at Survivor Series, team Authority was going to tear through team Cena, and when they would stand tall, who would be the one laughing. It would not be Jericho, neither the fans. It was going to be them; the authority.
Triple H attempted to leave. He stopped before he left the ring, then he came back to Jericho and said that next time Jericho calls him for an appearance, the authority might not accept his request, and they might erase they name of Chris Jericho from the history of WWE.
Triple H and Stephanie McMahon left the ring and when they were leaving the arena, Jericho said that he would like to sing a song after Survivor Series, ‘na na na na, hey hey hey, good bye.’ Triple H gave Jericho an evil look and left.
