Tonight’s show starts off with a look at Bray Wyatt’s promo and the handicap match between John Cena and the Wyatt Family.

We are in St. Louis, Missouri and your announcers are John ‘Mystique’ Layfield, Jerry ‘Storm’ Lawler, and Michael ‘Juggernaut’ Cole.

The music plays and the cage is lowered.

John Cena makes his way to the ring for his in cage rebuttal to Bray Wyatt’s comments from Smackdown.

John asks why? Why did you, along with the 11 million people who downloaded the app put him in that match? Why did he deserve it? The crowd is not very supportive of Cena.

John says the WWE Universe was given a choice for a fair fight or no chance against insurmountable odds. Why? Was it to prove what Bray Wyatt said? As the votes came in, the WWE Universe chose to give him no chance so he was forced to face all three members of the Wyatt Family. Why?

Somebody said that either you die as a hero or live long enough to become a villain. John says that he believes that. Ten years ago in this ring, here in St. Louis, he was drafted to Raw. That night, he heard the loudest ovation he ever heard in his career.

He says that he does not fault them. Times have changed. He has had some good nights here as well as some tough nights. He never abandoned the fans and he always put the WWE first.

John asks why are you drawn to Bray Wyatt. He knows the life cycle and he knows that he will have to step aside.

John says that he is very excited for the time when that happens because of the greatness that he sees. People like Roman Reigns, Cesaro, Seth Rollins, and Daniel Bryan. Cena mentions Adrian Neville and Sami Zayn. These guys have heart and passion. They have the passion for the WWE and for you.

He is here tonight to tell you that Bray Wyatt is a dangerous man. He is not like them. He shows up like nothing you have ever seen before. When he talks it is beautiful, captivating, and motivating. His passion is not the WWE, it is Bray Wyatt. Why is he standing in this steel cage.

Any member of the Wyatt Family who shows up will be kept out. Bray Wyatt’s message will be kept in. If Bray escapes this cage on Sunday, so does his message. He will continue to corrupt and to manipulate. John says that you don’t understand. Soon it will be Bray Wyatt against the world and the world won’t have a chance.

The lights go down and we hear a child singing ‘He’s Got the Whole World in his Hands’. The lights go up and we see a children’s choir on the stage.

The music plays for the Wyatts and Bray starts to sing as he makes his way to the ring with his lantern.

Bray sings along with the children.

The children surround the ring and continue to sing with Bray.

The lights go back on and the children now have lamb masks on.

Bray laughs and he asks John if he hears them.
