Tonight, In This Very Ring: A Collection of Wrestling Timelines

Shattered Shield: Survivor Series 2014
Survivor Series 2014

Venue: Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri
Attendance: 12,000
Announce Team: Michael Cole/Jerry Lawler/JBL​

Bray Wyatt d. Dean Ambrose

Rather than a DQ, Bray wins thanks to interference by Luke Harper. Sister Abigail does it here.

Team Cena (John Cena/Big Show/Dolph Ziggler/Jack Swagger/Ryback) d. Team Authority (Seth Rollins/Randy Orton/Kane/Mark Henry/Rusev) (w/The Authority and Lana) in a 5-on-5 Survivor Series Elimination Match

Some changes to the OTL card are the removal of Rowan and Harper. Instead, we have Swagger and Ryback (maybe have Cesaro beat Rowan on the pre-show)

The match starts off with Big Show sending out Mark Henry first, putting Team Cena at the advantage, but Rusev evens it out later with an elimination to Ryback. Orton takes Swagger with the RKO, followed by Big Show doing his usual heel turn, chokeslam to Cena and leaving him for Rollins before getting counted out. Dolph underdogs the rest of the match, eliminating Kane, Orton and after help from Sting, Seth Rollins. The Authority is gone! And this one is gonna stick! Rollins doesn't have his protection anymore!
 
Shattered Shield: TLC 2014
TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs 2014

Venue: Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio
Attendance: 14,000
Announce Team: Michael Cole/JBL​

Got more matches on this card due to some quick shuffling. Also, take Jerry Lawler off commentary and make him the WWE Commissioner. Good stuff.

Luke Harper (c) d. Erick Rowan in a Ladder Match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship

Probably not a great ladder match, but having a belt for it and the Wyatt vs. Wyatt nature adds to it. Harper pulls down the belt, keeping it over Rowan.

John Cena d. Big Show in a Tables Match

Drop the Steel Stairs match (goddamn, this year sucked) and tie up the loose end of Big Show's betrayal. AA through the table, nothing too intense.

Dean Ambrose d. Bray Wyatt in a No Holds Barred Match

We get a variant of the TLC match, just have the two go crazy on each other with weapons. Harper goes in for the interference when he's cut off by...


Roman's back! Spear to Harper! The Wyatts and the Shield! Kinda... who cares! Hoss fight! Hosssssss fiiiiiight! Thanks to help from his brother Roman, Ambrose hits Dirty Deeds and gets the win. And that's the important thing to sell here: Roman has every reason to want to go after Rollins, but his brother was in danger. Dean was under attack and Roman wasn't gonna stand by and do nothing. The WWE title will come later. First, he's gonna help Dean take out the Wyatts. The fans will get behind it. The smarks will continue their cynical line of seeing this as Dean can't win unless he's got Roman with him. But who cares? Main event time.

Seth Rollins (c) (w/Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury) d. Dolph Ziggler in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

Ziggler did beat Rollins at Survivor Series, so it's natural for him to get a shot at the title. This will be a good, fun match. Dolph does some great bumping and selling and the two damn near kill each other with spots. It's a wild car crash of a match, ending with Rollins unhooking the belt and standing tall atop the ladder.
 
Shattered Shield: Royal Rumble 2015, Part 1
Royal Rumble 2015

Venue: Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Attendance: 17,500
Announce Team: Michael Cole/JBL​

Dean Ambrose/Roman Reigns d. Bray Wyatt/Luke Harper

We do some shuffling. Take Cesaro/Kidd vs. New Day off the card. Make Ascension vs. Outlaws a pre-show squash (because the Ascension should fucking kill the Outlaws, damn it!) and have this fine match to open the show. Crowd is explosive here in Philly and it's a bit short, only hitting eleven minutes, but the crowd is hot all the way. Dean hits Dirty Deeds to Bray while Reigns hits the spear on Harper to stop the break up. The two hug after the match before turning to see the WrestleMania sign. They lock eyes, Dean offers a hand and Roman shakes his hand.

Seth Rollins (c) (w/Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury) d. Brock Lesnar (w/Paul Heyman) and John Cena in a Triple Threat Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

So, you got the OTL match, but the context has changed. Cena has been #1 contender since October while Rollins was ducking him. Brock, as part of a deal between the Authority and Heyman, is finally demanding his shot at the title. A deal Seth tried to get out of since the Authority, you know, isn't around. But Lawler upholds the deal and also adds Cena to the mix, getting us to here. Rollins wins after a Curbstomp to Cena onto the belt as we head into what will no doubt be the longest part of this timeline so far.

The Rumble.
 
Shattered Shield: Royal Rumble 2015, Part 2
The 2015 Royal Rumble

#1: The Miz
#2: R-Truth

Rekindle this old feud to kick off the Rumble.

#3: Bubba Ray Dudley

Bubba starts off with some returning veteran spots before teaming up with R-Truth.

#4: Luke Harper

The Intercontinental champion comes in and starts attacking Bubba.

#5: Bray Wyatt

And here comes Bray to assist Harper, the two dumping Bubba out (30, Bubba)

#6: Curtis Axel

Or it would've been if Erick Rowan didn't decide he wanted to deal with the family. So we get the Axelmania spot, but also.

#6: Erick Rowan

Here comes Rowan, fighting hard as the underdog against Bray and Luke.

#7: The Boogeyman

HE'S THE BOOGEYMAN! AND HE'S COMING TO GET YOU, BRAY! Boogeyman teams up with Erick Rowan because this is a match of weird spooky stuff... and also Miz/R-Truth.

#8: Sin Cara

And Sin Cara dives into the Miz/R-Truth fight while Bray and Luke toss out Boogeyman (29, Boogeyman)

#9: Zack Ryder

And here comes Ryder to help with the Miz. Rowan's struggling to stay in and Harper and Wyatt dump him out (28, Rowan)

#10: Daniel Bryan

And here comes D-Bry to bring kicks to Bray and Luke while the Miz goes out (27, Miz) Ryder, R-Truth and Sin Cara turn to the Wyatts as it becomes a fight.

#11: Fandango

And you know what time it is, folks. First up comes a discus clothesline from Harper before getting tossed into Sister Abigail. As Fandango gets up, he takes a Rough Ryder, followed by a Little Jimmy and a senton bomb from Sin Cara. D-Bry sets up for the Solid Knee Plus as soon as Fandango is up and out he goes (26, Fandango)

#12: Tyson Kidd

Kidd goes right after D-Bry, doing some Michaels/Bret stuff here with them while the Wyatts turn to targeting R-Truth and Zack Ryder because why not?

#13: Stardust

And Stardust goes right after Sin Cara. No real reason, just need to have Sin Cara fight somebody. R-Truth gets sent out (25, R-Truth) leaving Ryder to fend for himself.

#14: Diamond Dallas Page

Yo, it's me! It's me! It's D-D-P! Diamond Cutters for everybody before he decides to go after the Wyatts with Zack Ryder. Meanwhile, Stardust sends out Sin Cara (24, Sin Cara)

#15: Rusev

Rusev! He comes in to help Tyson Kidd to try and toss out D-Bry while DDP gets sent out (23, Page) with Ryder holding on for dear life.

#16: Goldust

Goldust comes in and teams with his brother to fight the Wyatts after Zack Ryder gets tossed out (22, Ryder) while Daniel continues to fight both Kidd and Rusev.

#17: Kofi Kingston

It's a New Day... they're not there yet, but they're still babyfaces, so Kofi comes in to help D-Bry. He dives onto Rusev, taking a belly-to-belly while D-Bry and Tyson go back to it.

#18: Adam Rose

Rose looks to help Tyson Kidd because that was a thing for like a hot minute.

#19: Roman Reigns

And here he comes! Reigns hits a nice hard spear to Adam Rose and sends him out (21, Rose) leaving Bryan with Tyson and turning to Rusev.

#20: Big E

Big E joins up with Kofi while Goldust gets sent out (20, Goldust) followed by Stardust (19, Stardust) before having the Wyatts meet the New Day. Fights right not are D-Bry/Tyson, Reigns/Rusev, and Bray/Harper vs. New Day.

#21: Damien Mizdow

Man, Mizdow would've made for a great multi-finisher spot, especially here. Instead, we have Mizdow getting directed from ringside by Miz to attack D-Bry, putting the American Dragon through the ringer.

#22: Jack Swagger

Swagger goes after Tyson Kidd as we get a battle of the beards with Bryan and Mizdow. Ring's filling up a bit... let's see if we can fix that.

#23: Ryback

Ryback comes in and starts dumping out some guys, sending out Tyson (18, Kidd) and Swagger (17, Swagger) while Bray and Harper toss out Big E (16, Big E) and try for Kofi, but Big E gets him on his shoulders and gets him back in before they dump him out again (15, Kingston) and Bryan sends out Mizdow (14, Mizdow)

#24: Kane

Kane comes in, gets into it with Ryback, but thanks to help from D-Bry, he's sent out (13, Kane) Yeah, fuck you, Kane! You're not here to ruin this Rumble! D-Bry and Ryback work together to fight the Wyatts while Reigns continues to fight Rusev.

#25: Dean Ambrose

And Ambrose comes in with the assist to Reigns! Together the two manage to send Rusev out (12, Rusev) and wait for the next entrant.

#26: Titus O'Neil

Yep, out ya go, Titus (11, O'Neil)

#27: Bad News Barrett

Well, he's gonna be tough to send out. Meanwhile, Bray and Harper manage to toss out Ryback (10, Ryback) and single out poor Daniel.

#28: Cesaro

And things get worse from here for Dean and Roman. Meanwhile, D-Bry finally gets tossed by Bray (9, Bryan) with him and Harper turning to join on beating the former Shield.

#29: Big Show

Well... it's the Big Show. Dean and Roman fight hard, protecting each other. The goal is that one or both men have to make it to the end. They're brothers, even in the "every man for himself" environment of the Royal Rumble.

#30: Dolph Ziggler

Dolph comes into help, surprising everyone by sacrificing himself to send out Bad News Barrett (8, Barrett) (7, Ziggler)

Cesaro decides to play to the crowd and tosses out the Big Show while Reigns and Ambrose fight back against the Wyatt family (6, Big Show)

However, this opens himself up as Dean and Roman send him out as well (5, Cesaro)

The final four is the Wyatt Family and the Shield. Two teams who were split the last year, now together trying to fight for the glory. However, Bray makes the error of tossing out Luke now (4, Harper) and pays with Ambreigns sending him out (3, Wyatt)

Of course, we have them go for a while. Really sell the tension between two brothers looking to main event WrestleMania. The sequence starts with a handshake and the two do not let up for a second. They wanna make sure that whoever wins the Rumble earns it. And finally, after all that, Roman tosses out Ambrose (2, Ambrose)

The crowd reaction is gonna be mixed, but I doubt it's gonna be boos. Especially not when, instead of OTL's Rock, Ambrose comes back in and raises Roman's arm in victory. The two hug and point to the sign together, a promise that no matter what happens, they're both gonna be there.
 
Shattered Shield: Fastlane 2015
Fastlane 2015

Venue: FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee
Attendance: 14,000
Announce Team: Michael Cole/JBL​

Bray Wyatt d. Luke Harper (c) for the WWE Intercontinental Title

Bray takes the IC belt from his disciple in a small divergence here. It's a rough brawl between both men, ending with a Sister Abigail. Hey, it's Bray's first belt. Yay for Bray.

Seth Rollins (c) (w/Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury) d. Ryback for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

Risky match to put him with Ryback, but the story is simple. Ryback gets a shot because Seth's been annoying Commissioner Lawler and this ought to shut him up. Maybe he wants to prove he can beat another powerhouse to show Reigns he won't win at WrestleMania. Interference by J&J Security set Ryback up for the Curbstomp.

Dean Ambrose d. Daniel Bryan

Both men have some valid claim to a shot at Seth. D-Bry never lost the belt and Dean only lost his title match thanks to interference from Bray, so Lawler agrees that the winner of the match will be inserted into the main event of WrestleMania. From there it's Daniel Bryan vs. Dean Ambrose and what more do you want? You got twenty minutes of good stuff here, ending with Dirty Deeds. Dean and Daniel shake hands, out comes Roman. Roman shakes hands with D-Bry, "you fought well, Daniel." All that good babyface stuff and then Roman turns to Dean. Roman offers a fist. Dean bumps it and the two stare each other down before looking to the WrestleMania sign.
 
Shattered Shield: WrestleMania 31
WrestleMania 31

Venue: Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California
Attendance: 77,000
Announce Team: Michael Cole/JBL​

Pre-Show Match: Tyson Kidd/Cesaro (c) (w/Natalya) d. Los Matadores (w/El Torito), The New Day (Kofi Kingston/Big E) (w/Xavier Woods) and The Usos (w/Naomi) in a Fatal Four-Way Tag Team Match for the WWE Tag Team Championship

Same match from OTL. Sorry, Colons. Can't save you this time.

Pre-Show Match: Damien Sandow wins the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

Give this one to Sandow as we make him his own man here, breaking away from the Miz on the big stage.

Daniel Bryan d. Bad News Barrett, Bray Wyatt (c), Dolph Ziggler, Stardust and Luke Harper in a Ladder Match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship

So, we have the OTL match, but with Bray here instead of Ambrose. Got a somewhat shuffled up card here and this match kicks off the main show. D-Bry wins, yes chants all around.

Brock Lesnar (w/Paul Heyman) d. Randy Orton (w/Triple H) in a No Disqualification Match

So, Hunter had been taken out of power and he has been demanding it back, so Lawler decides that he can have it back... if Orton can beat Lesnar in a No-DQ match. Which he can't He gets wrecked. He gets suplexed into Triple H, he gets a trip to Suplex City, bitches. F5 ends it. Triple H is never coming back.

AJ Lee/Paige d. The Bella Twins
John Cena d. Rusev (c) (w/Lana) for the WWE United States Championship

Last two OTL matches.

The Undertaker d. Sting

Because you gotta have the match. You gotta get Undertaker vs. Sting and you get it here. Go below twenty minutes, have Undertaker win with the Tombstone, have it wrap here for Sting with a handshake. Enjoy the Hall of Fame ring, Stinger.

Seth Rollins (c) d. Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose in a Triple Threat Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

You knew it was coming. It had to come to this. All three members of the Shield, almost a year since Seth split them up, now meeting for the biggest prize in wrestling. The start of the match is Dean and Roman finally venting their frustrations on Seth when he tries to bail and whole they got him beaten down, the brothers begin to turn around on each other. See, as much as they were united against Seth, the WWE World Title is still something both men want. One had it, one got his chance robbed and both want to take it from Seth.

So, they fight. We get Dean vs. Roman, sometimes Seth will jump in and do a sequence before getting sent out. All three men play to their strengths. The finish has Roman spear Dean, only for Seth to sneak in with the Curbstomp to Roman to get the pinfall and walk out of WrestleMania 31 still champion. Spin that belt, Seth! You've won at the main event of WrestleMania!

Oh, but don't worry, folks. The story is not yet over. Oh no, this was just the end of Act 1. Get ready for Act 2.
 
Shattered Shield: Extreme Rules 2015
Extreme Rules 2015

Venue: Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois
Attendance: 15,000
Announce Team: Michael Cole/JBL​

Dean Ambrose d. Luke Harper in a Chicago Street Fight
Roman Reigns d. Big Show in a Last Man Standing Match
Seth Rollins (c) d. Randy Orton in a Steel Cage Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

All OTL matches, but with some change to the booking behind them. Harper and Show are pretty much there to keep Ambrose and Reigns busy while Orton is slowly turning face. He's pissed at being forced to face Brock, pissed at Triple H for shoving him aside for Seth and he's getting real sick of Rollins' smug little rat face. Wants to take him out. No RKO ban gimmick because they didn't have the 'Mania match and also that gimmick was stupid. Just a straight up cage match with Rollins escaping and J&J security takes some RKOs.

King of the Ring 2015 Tournament Results

Another return of King of the Ring because sometimes WWE does this. Let's see how it goes.

Quarterfinals

Bad News Barrett d. Dolph Ziggler
R-Truth d. Stardust
Dean Ambrose d. Sheamus
Neville d. Luke Harper

Semifinals

Bad News Barrett d. R-Truth
Neville d. Dean Ambrose

Finals

Neville d. Bad News Barrett

So, small changes from OTL. Ambrose makes it to the semi, but loses to Neville and Neville actually becomes King of the Ring, setting up for a match down the line.

Seth Rollins (c) d. Randy Orton, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns in a Fatal Four-Way Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

We lose the Kane Director of Operations gimmick and just have the match for the title. Same match as OTL. Saving the Neville title shot for a rainy day.

Dean Ambrose d. Seth Rollins (w/Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury) for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship by disqualification

Yep. Another OTL main event. Really, this stuff still works, I just remember hating it at the time because the booking was terrible behind it. Taking the Authority out of the picture helps, though. Now it's just cocky Seth having to weasel his way out of losing by attacking the ref and getting jumped post-match by Reigns.

Venue: Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio
Attendance: 16,000

Roman Reigns d. Dolph Ziggler, Kane, Kofi Kingston, Neville, Randy Orton and Sheamus in a Money in the Bank Ladder Match

Bray tries to interfere, like in OTL, but gets stopped by Ambrose. Reigns unhooks the briefcase and becomes this year's Mr. Money in the Bank.

Seth Rollins (c) d. Dean Ambrose for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

What a difference a year makes. Now Seth's champion leaving Money in the Bank and Reigns has the briefcase. Hmm...
 
I have a suggestion for a future timeline: What if Bryan never returned to the WWE after he was fired the first time? He had just started EVOLVE with Gabe Sapolsky and was supposed to serve as its figurehead.
 
Shattered Shield: Battleground 2015

Venue: Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri
Attendance: 11,000
Announce Team: Michael Cole/JBL​

Roman Reigns (w/Dean Ambrose) d. Bray Wyatt (w/Luke Harper) for the Money in the Bank Briefcase

In place of the OTL match, we have Reigns defend his briefcase against Bray, with Dean and Luke in their corners. This feud is still playing out and after some fun shenanigans, Reigns wins with the Spear.

Brock Lesnar (w/Paul Heyman) d. Seth Rolins (c) for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship by disqualification

OTL match. DQ finish after Undertaker runs in because he wants a rematch against Lesnar. Seth scurries away with the belt and gets Speared by Reigns at the top of the ramp.
 
You know what? Sure, that could be fun.
I figure you could bounce back and forth between what's going on in WWE and just how much ass Bryan is kicking, generally, in the indie scene, with maybe a more focused... focus on EVOLVE after... 2013?

Battleground 2015

Venue: Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri
Attendance: 11,000
Announce Team: Michael Cole/JBL​

Roman Reigns (w/Dean Ambrose) d. Bray Wyatt (w/Luke Harper) for the Money in the Bank Briefcase

In place of the OTL match, we have Reigns defend his briefcase against Bray, with Dean and Luke in their corners. This feud is still playing out and after some fun shenanigans, Reigns wins with the Spear.

Brock Lesnar (w/Paul Heyman) d. Seth Rolins (c) for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship by disqualification

OTL match. DQ finish after Undertaker runs in because he wants a rematch against Lesnar. Seth scurries away with the belt and gets Speared by Reigns at the top of the ramp.
See, on the one hand, it makes more sense to show Seth actually running away, but on the other hand, I'll miss the OTL meme of Seth having the power to transform into the Undertaker.
 
Shattered Shield: SummerSlam 2015
SummerSlam 2015

Venue: Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York
Attendance: 16,000
Announce Team: Michael Cole/JBL​

Sheamus d. Randy Orton
The New Day (Big E/Kofi Kingston) (w/Xavier Woods) d. The Prime Time Players (c), Los Matadores (w/El Torito) and The Lucha Dragons in a Fatal Four-Way Match for the WWE Tag Team Championship

Two OTL matches to kick things off.

Rusev (w/Summer Rae) d. Dolph Ziggler (w/Lana)

Maybe I'll put this feud on the list for future focus because goddamn was this an awful storyline. And now they're doing again with Bobby Lashley! What in the hell is wrong with WWE? Rusev wins here with the Accolade after Lana turns on Ziggler because fuck this storyline.

Stephen Amell d. Stardust

Neville's got his ticket punched for later, so we drop him and Barrett from this match, just have Cody carry Amell to a decent match, Amell hitting a Crossrhodes to Stardust.

Ryback (c) d. The Big Show and the Miz in a Triple Threat Match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship
Dean Ambrose/Roman Reigns d. The Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt/Luke Harper)

OTL matches.

John Cena (c) d. Bad News Barrett for the WWE United States Championship

Just a quick little match, Cena keeping the title with AA.

The Dynasty (Charlotte/Paige/Becky Lynch) d. The Boss Posse (Sasha Banks/Naomi/Tamina Snuka) and Team Bella (Nikki Bella/Brie Bella/Alicia Fox) in a Three Team Elimination Match

OTL match, but with some slightly better team names.

Kevin Owens d. Cesaro
The Undertaker d. Brock Lesnar (w/Paul Heyman)

Two more OTL matches, but we're not done yet.

Seth Rollins (c) d. Neville for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

Seth retains after an exciting match against the 2015 King of the Ring, winning after a Phoenix Splash... but the night's still not over. Here comes Roman. This time, Seth can't escape as Dean awaits outside the ring. Roman hands the ref the briefcase while Seth throws a fit.

Roman Reigns (w/Dean Ambrose) d. Seth Rollins (c) for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

And this match goes a little shorter than the Neville match as Seth tries to escape or get DQed, but Dean cuts him off at every turn. Reigns hits the Spear and reclaims his title after a year. And now we end act 2. The final act begins with Reigns once again as champion.

Venue: Toyota Center in Houston, Texas
Attendance: 15,000
Announce Team: Michael Cole/JBL​

Pre-Show Match: Stardust/The Ascension d. Neville/The Lucha Dragons in a Six-Man Tag Team Match

Figured I may as well go full card here since I'll need to do some tinkering now. This match is OTL, still.

Kevin Owens d. Ryback (c) for the WWE Intercontinental Championship

Another OTL match.

Bray Wyatt d. Dolph Ziggler

Bray wrecks Dolph here since Roman's gonna be busy, so we pull Bray from the tag match and give him a singles match. Sister Abigail finishes.

The Dudley Boyz d. The New Day (Big E/Kofi Kingston) (c) (w/Xavier Woods) for the WWE Tag Team Championship by disqualification
Charlotte (w/Paige and Becky Lynch) d. Nikki Bella (c) (w/Brie Bella and Alicia Fox) for the WWE Divas Championship


Two more OTL matches.

The Wyatt Family (Luke Harper/Braun Strowman) d. Dean Ambrose/Chris Jericho

So, we cut it from a six-man to a basic tag match, but the match ends the same. Jericho passes out in Strowman's triangle choke.

John Cena (c) d. Seth Rollins for the WWE United States Championship

Seth wants his rematch, but Lawler denies him so Seth isntead takes a spot in Cena's US Title Open Challenge. We have a tidy match here with Cena keeping over the indignant Seth with the Attitude Adjustment.

Roman Reigns (c) d. Rusev (w/Lana) for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

Nothing like a good ol' hoss fight. Just two big, strong boys throwing each other around with power moves. Reigns keeps with the Spear to cap off the night.

Pre-Show Match: King Barrett/Rusev/Sheamus d. Neville/Dolph Ziggler/Cesaro in a Six-Man Tag Team Match

OTL match but with a flipped result.

Alberto del Rio d. John Cena (c) for the WWE United States Championship

And we bring in del Rio, but without Zeb Colter. A run-in by Barrett, Rusev and Sheamus helps Del Rio win the gold.

Dean Ambrose d. Bray Wyatt in a Hell in a Cell Match

In place of Reigns/Wyatt, we let Ambrose finally get a one-on-one against Bray, getting the clean win after an intense Hell in a Cell bout. Bray oddly tells the family they are not needed. Weird... why wouldn't he? Ah, whatever, it's Bray. He's crazy.

The New Day (Big E/Kofi Kingston) (c) d. The Dudley Boyz for the WWE Tag Team Championship
Charlotte (c) d. Nikki Bella for the WWE Divas Championship
Kevin Owens (c) d. Ryback for the WWE Intercontinental Championship


Three OTL matches, but with one pushed back because we got a big match for the co-main event.

Roman Reigns (c) d. Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

Seth gets his rematch, facing off against Roman before he has to go down for knee injury. It's an all-out war between the two, with Seth and Roman giving their all, ending in a Spear by Roman as he keeps his title.

Brock Lesnar (w/Paul Heyman) d. The Undertaker in a Hell in a Cell Match

Oh yeah, there's also that OTL main event match you might've heard of. Yeah, that's here too, including the Wyatt Family taking him away.
 
Shattered Shield: Survivor Series 2015
Survivor Series 2015

Venue: Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia
Attendance: 15,000
Announce Team: Michael Cole/JBL​

The New Day (c) d. The Cosmic Wasteland in a Six-Man Tag Team Match for the WWE Tag Team Championship

Kicking off the show with an insane six-man tag for the tag belts. It's got everything you could want. The Ascension bring the brawling, Big E has the power moves, Kofi is flying everywhere, Stardust occasionally brings some southern-style work and Xavier, during the slower periods, will jump in on commentary. Midnight Hour to Stardust keeps it as we start the show.

Braun Strowman (w/Erick Rowan) d. Bo Dallas

In the build up, Bo pleads with his brother to not fight the Undertaker and to turn away from his so-called "family" and be his brother again. Instead, Bray throws him to Braun. It's a squash. Big boot and a running powerslam ends it in less than two minutes.

The Dudley Boyz d. The Usos

Just to do. 3D to Jimmy wins it.

The League of Nations (King Barrett/Sheamus/Alberto del Rio/Rusev/Kevin Owens) d. Neville/Titus O'Neil/Goldust/The Lucha Dragons in a Five-On-Five Survivor Series Elimination Match

The League dominate this mismatched group of babyfaces, taking Titus out first with a Pop-Up Powerbomb, then Goldust with the same. Del Rio gets rid of Sin Cara with a Cross Armbreaker, but becomes the only elimination for the League thanks to a Salida del Sol. Kalisto falls to a Wasteland, leaving Neville to get stomped out before the White Noise.

Charlotte (c) d. Paige for the WWE Divas Championship
Tyler Breeze d. Dolph Ziggler


Oh hey, OTL matches.

Ryback d. Kane

Get Ryback some momentum going with a hoss win over Kane. Shellshocked does it here.

Bray Wyatt (w/Luke Harper) d. The Undertaker

His career began at Survivor Series and it ends at Survivor Series. Both men give it their all to make the Deadman's last ride a great one. It all ends with three Sister Abigails to put 'Taker away. But the show's not done yet.

Roman Reigns (c) d. Dean Ambrose for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

We make this match go longer than the nine minutes it got in OTL. It's a big match, after all. Two friends, practically brothers, meeting for the biggest prize in all of wrestling. The crowd is white hot for the match and it ends with a Spear. The two go to shake hands... and then Reigns pulls Ambrose into a clothesline and thrashes him. The crowd, who were always mixed to after the Shield break-up, finally turns on Dean, finishing off with a Spear before taking his belt and leaving. He does the "I'm not a bad guy, not a good guy" speech next RAW, but it's much more clearly a heel promo.

"I'm not a bad guy. I'm not a good guy. I'm THE guy. I'm the guy who carried the Shield to dominance while all of you cheered for Ambrose and Rollins. While you typed away about how great they were on your forums and Twitter, I was the guy getting the wins. I'm the guy who won the world title when Seth turned on us. I'm the one who beat the one in 21-1, while all of you booed and then got so happy when Seth cashed in on me. I'm the one who fought day in and day out to get this back and when I got it back, I became the guy who became a two-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion. But it wasn't enough for you. For you, you wanted Seth to be the guy. You wanted Dean to be the guy. You hated me because I wasn't one of your indie darlings. Well, too bad for you because I'm the guy, I've always been the guy and I will ALWAYS be the guy.

Believe THAT!"
