2010 - WWE announced Wendi Richter would be inducted into their Hall of Fame by Roddy Piper.

2010 - WWE broadcast Raw.  Richard Trionfo filed the following TV report:

It is time to take a look back at last night’s Elimination Chamber pay per view where John Cena won the Raw Elimination Chamber match . . . only to lose to Batista so we have a newer new WWE Champion.

We are live from Indianapolis, Indiana and your announcers are Michael ‘Vintage Adjectives’ Cole and Jerry ‘Eight Seconds . . . is all we get to talk on PPVs’ Lawler.

Cole and Lawler let us know that Shawn Michaels will be on Raw tonight, but will the Undertaker show up as well? We also have a mechanical bull in the building because of one-half of our guest host combination Ty Murray.

Justin Roberts brings out the World Champion Chris Jericho, who is the champion of Smackdown, but he is on Raw despite never being allowed back on the show. Chris says that he is going to Wrestlemania. He says that since he was unfairly assaulted and attacked by Mike Tyson, he said that he would never return to Raw again despite being the best performer in the company and the true face of the WWE. Jericho says that he changed his mind because he defeated five of the top Smackdown superstars, including the Undertaker. He says that he has defeated the Undertaker two times in a row and wonders how many can say that. Jericho points out that he is the World Champion and says it a few more times.

Chris is interrupted by Edge’s music and he comes up behind Jericho and hits a spear on Chris. Edge tells Chris that Jericho is going to Wrestlemania to face him.

Cole and Lawler talk about the matchup between Edge and Jericho.

Speaking of people who won a title on Sunday, John Cena comes to the ring and he has a purpose. Cena has something to say but he waits a little bit to compose himself. Cena says that he can be added to the list of people who have been screwed by Vince McMahon. John points out that he won the Elimination Chamber match and instead of celebrating, he is mad as hell because of Vince McMahon for putting him in a second match against Batista. John says that if that is how Vince wants to do business, that is fine. John says that he wants his rematch and he wants it right now.

Continuing the parade of former champions, Vince McMahon comes out and he has something to say. Vince says that the operative word is ‘business’ and he is all about business. Vince says that he made a business deal with Batista. He says that he didn’t want to mess up his hands with the broken down Bret Hart and since Batista helped him out, Vince was going to help Batista. Vince says that if Batista wanted a WWE Title match any time and any place, he could have it. Vince says that it is all on Cena. Vince says that if it was personal, he can bring up what Cena said last week. Vince repeats what Cena said last week and as a result of what Cena said, Batista became the champion. Cena says that he is taking it back. Vince says that Batista is not going to defend the title until Wrestlemania. Vince brings up that another person has a rematch clause and that person is the former WWE Champion Sheamus. Vince wonders which one of them deserves the title match at Wrestlemania. Vince says that he has a deal for Cena. If Cena can win tonight, he faces Batista in the main event at Wrestlemania. If Cena loses, Sheamus gets to be in the main event against Batista. Cena wants to know who he is facing tonight since he accepts the offer. Vince says that John Cena will be facing Batista.

We go to the Legacy Locker Room and Cody tells Randy that he didn’t want to tell him that he told Randy so but he knew that Ted would turn on him. Cody says that Ted was talking about headlining Wrestlemania in the same year that his father is inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Shawn Michaels makes his way to the ring and he is dressed for our male co-host. Shawn takes off his hat. Shawn says that he is not going to take too long because the explanation for his actions is not that complicated. He says that he did what he had to do. Shawn says that he has heard that what he has done is not that popular but he can live with that. Shawn says that there were rumors that the Undertaker might be in the building tonight. Shawn says that for every action there is a reaction. Shawn says that he is not hoping for a reaction, he is counting on it. He says that there is no one . . .

Gongs stop Shawn’s comments and the flames rise from the stage as the Undertaker emerges from the smoke and makes his way to the ring with the vintage Undertaker gait.

Taker gets face to face with Shawn and says that he wanted his attention so now he has it. Shawn tells Taker that last year people said they had the greatest match in Wrestlemania history, even the greatest match ever. Shawn says that no matter how flattering that is, he wrestled a nearly perfect match. He says that he made one mistake and it cost him everything. Shawn says that it is something that he cannot live with. Shawn asked and begged for a rematch but Taker refused. Shawn says that Taker ignored him and didn’t leave him any choice but to cost Taker the World Title. Shawn says that he knows that Taker is angry at him and as Taker stands there, he cannot wait to get his hands on Shawn. Shawn says that is okay. He says that if Taker wants his revenge, he can do it at Wrestlemania.

Taker tells Shawn that he is on and he accepts the match.

I will have my thoughts on the show in the Shine 7 Post Game Show in Elite Section.

2013 - WWE broadcast Smackdown.  Richard Trionfo filed the following TV report:

The Road to Wrestlemania is a few days closer to its destination. Jack Swagger will be facing Alberto Del Rio for the World Title and he will be doing it for Americans. The Rock has a new title belt while we do not know who will have the chance to change the plates on the side of the belt.

This week, we are in Biloxi, Mississippi and your announcers are Josh’ They have casinos here too’ Mathews and John ‘Get your Bingo cards and drinking game rules ready’ Layfield.

Lillian Garcia introduces Ricardo Rodriguez and he introduces the man who has the longest current reigning major championship belt in WWE history, Alberto Del Rio.

In case you missed it, we have photos of Big Show tapping out to Alberto at the Elimination Chamber.

Del Rio says that at the Elimination Chamber, he retained his World Title. That means that they are going to Wrestlemania and they prove it by pointing to the sign. Alberto says that he found out who his opponent would be and that man is Jack Swagger. Alberto says that Jack has a new mission, a new friend, and a new attitude. Jack believes that he is everything that is right with America while Alberto is everything that is wrong with America.

Alberto says that he has heard Jack and saw what he had to say. Jack says that the problem in this country is with the immigrants who are taking jobs from people like Jack. This country was built by immigrants who were chasing the American dream. It was built by families looking for a better life. That is why America is so great.

The title is the result of his hard work and the American dream. Jack claims to be the ‘Real American’, Alberto thinks that he is the ‘Real Jackass’. Alberto tells Jack to come out so he can lay his hand out across Jack’s face.

Jack Swagger does not come out, but Randy Orton does make his way to the ring.

Randy has something to say and he tells Alberto that he is going to do his absolute best to stay calm, cool, and collected. Something was taken from him this past Sunday. He was this close to having the opportunity to regain the World Title against Alberto in the main event of Wrestlemania. It was taken by Jack Swagger.

Randy says that he respects Swagger because he would have done the same thing. Part of him wants to take out his rage on Jack Swagger tonight. Randy says that Alberto is wrestling Swagger at Wrestlemania. He wants Alberto to step aside tonight so he can take care of Swagger tonight.

Even though nobody has moved towards taking an offensive action in the ring, Booker T comes out and he says that this is not how he sees Smackdown going down. Booker has a few ideas. There will be a champion versus champion match. Alberto Del Rio will face Wade Barrett. Jack Swagger will be facing Randy Orton tonight.

Randy has his wish and Booker wants to know if someone wants to dig.
