WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: HAS KANE GOTTEN INTO SETH'S HEAD?, WHOSE REVOLUTION IS IT ANYWAY?, WHAT DID THE NEW DAY DO THIS WEEK?

By Richard Trionfo on 2015-09-24 21:55:00
We start off with a look at what happened during the main event of Night of Champions and the aftermath on Raw.

We are in Corpus Christi, Texas and your announcers are Booker T, Rich Brennan, and Jerry Lawler.

Kane is in the ring and he welcomes everyone to Smackdown on behalf of the Authority. After a much needed vacation, Kane says he is thrilled to be back as the Director of Authority. Kane says he is of two minds. On one side, so much had happened while he was gone and with everyone so talented, he did not want to bring anyone down. On the other hand, this is the right time because WWE is on fire. Who better to handle that heat than someone with his administrative experience.

Tonight, in this very ring, the new Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens will join forces with the Bulgarian Brute Rusev as they face Ryback and Dolph Ziggler. The war rages when Luke Harper faces Roman Reigns. There will no outside interference in that match because Dean Ambrose is barred from ringside. Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman are also barred from ringside. Kane says he has a great . . .

Seth Rollins comes out to interrupt Kane and he is not in a good mood even though Kane is applauding the FORMER United States and current WWE World Champion as he introduces him.

Seth tells Kane to cut the crap. He says that Kane is not fooling anybody. He says this Bruce Banner situation is a joke. Underneath that cheap suit, everyone knows you are the Demon Kane.

Kane tells Seth he seems angry. Kane says that when he became the Director of Operations, he underwent conflict resolution training so he asks Seth to come to the ring to discuss things peacefully.

Seth reminds Kane of what happened after his two matches at Night of Champions.

Kane says that was a shame because Sheamus almost cashed in as he watched from the comfort of his own home.

Seth brings up what happened on Monday.

Kane says he was looking forward to giving Seth his rematch against John Cena.

Seth reminds Kane of what happened after the match.

Kane asks Seth who is speaking to him right now. Some demon from the depths of hell who is determined to inflict immeasurable hell until you scream in agony? Or a man in a suit? Your friend Kane, who helped you become WWE Champion.

Seth asks Kane why is he doing this to him. He never did anything to him. Brock Lesnar broke your leg.

Kane says he knows that, but you did call him a ‘seven foot piece of crap’. Kane says that Seth was only saying that to motivate him.

Seth says that Kane is not fit to be Director of Operations any more. He says that Kane is not welcome around him or his WWE Championship. Seth says he is saying this as a colleague and friend. He says that Kane needs serious help.

Kane thanks Seth and he says he will take that under advisement. Kane says that Seth interrupted him before he could finish saying what was going to be on the show. He tells Seth that he will be facing someone he knows very well in the main event . . . Dean Ambrose.
