Becky Bayless: Welcome to the first Oblivion since Final Frontier!
Rob Van Dam: We’re coming off of a few hugely successful events and tonight, is the start of the King and Queen of the Ring tournaments.
Becky Bayless: These are the opening brackets for the first round.
Rob Van Dam: The latter half of the opening rounds will happen next week. For now, we’re kicking things off with Lita versus Rachel Knight!
Show Opener; Queen of the Ring Opening Round Match: "Queen of Xtreme" Lita (accompanied by Ember) vs. Rachel Knight (accompanied by Danielle Day)
- Lita begins to assault Rachel viciously in the opening minutes, hoping to put her away early.
- Rachel soon turns the tables after kicking the ropes as Lita stands on the top turnbuckle, causing her to tall to the mat.
- Ember attempts to get involved on behalf of Lita but Danielle puts a stop to that quickly.
- Rachel steals the win after planting a distracted Lita with the Knight Driver.
(Winner - Rachel Knight)
Becky Bayless: Rachel with a huge win there!
Rob Van Dam: One of the biggest wins of her career!
SoCal Val: Ladies and gentlemen... one of Oblivion’s newest acquisitions... Shelton Benjamin.
Shelton took a step forward.
Shelton Benjamin: Hey, Val, it’s good to be here.
SoCal Val: Well, you’re immediately being thrown into a huge opportunity here in the first round of the King of the Ring.
Shelton Benjamin: And it’s against Brutus Magnus, a man I’ve faced plenty of times in the past. We’ve got our history, sure and no doubt, we both want this opportunity. We want nothing more than to become King of the Ring so I’m ready for it. I’m going to do whatever it is I can to get the job done here. It’s my first night on Oblivion... I’m going to make it the best I possibly can.
SoCal Val: Well, good luck here on Oblivion and against Magnus tonight!
Shelton Benjamin: No luck needed, Val... I got this.
He said as he smiled towards her before walking away.
Becky Bayless: We’ve already seen the first round of the Queen of the Ring, so how are the brackets of the King of the Ring tournament looking?
Rob Van Dam: Some big names in there so it’s going to be interesting! We’re about to see our first match in the tournament!
King of the Ring Opening Round Match: Shelton Benjamin vs. Brutus Magnus (accompanied by Doug Williams)
Becky Bayless: Benjamin and Magnus both want this but one is about to be out!
Rob Van Dam: This is going to be one helluva match.
- Magnus and Benjamin have a great exchange of shots in the opening minutes of the match,
- After a back and forth, Benjamin hits Magnus with the Shell Shocka but before he can capitalize, Magnus rolls out of the ring.
- Magnus goes in for the kill but Doug Williams is suddenly assaulted on the outside of the ring by Brotherhood members Levi Flynn, Marcus Brett, Andrew Lincoln, Jason DeShea and Oliver Orozco.
- Magnus attempts to help his partner but Shelton Benjamin takes advantage by striking with the Paydirt to steal the win.
(Winner - Shelton Benjamin)
Becky Bayless: Benjamin stole it but he might have to thank the Brotherhood for that!
Rob Van Dam: They might have just been drafted to Burnout but that’s not going to stop them showing up here!
The Brotherhood just laugh at the fallen British Invasion but soon, the numbers are evened as the New Day’s Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods and Big E hit the ring. After a brawl, it’s the Brotherhood who are left backing their way up the ramp to escape.
Becky Bayless: It looks like New Day are repaying the favor to the British Invasion!
After a commercial break, we see Brutus Magnus and Doug Williams recovering with the New Day still around them.
Brutus Magnus: I want to thank the two of you for having our back out there.
Doug Williams: Yeah, we really appreciate that.
Kofi Kingston: Hey, we appreciate the fact that you had our back last week, so of course we’ve got your back now.
Big E: Yeah, you guys are alright. We have no personal problems with you so we figure the smartest thing to do is for us all to stick together against the Brotherhood. They’re a good team... but we can be better.
Xavier Woods: So if you’re down for it, so are we. We’re happy to work together for the greater good.
Magnus nodded as the New Day then begin to dance, with both Magnus and Williams looking slightly uncomfortable.
Xavier Woods: You’ll get used to us.
Scene moves to the Divas Locker Room as we see the two formerly known as the Divas of Tomorrow is preparing themselves for a match. Britani and Haruna seen lacing up her boots as Haruna turns her head to her partner with a curious look on her face.
Haruna Sakazaki: Nee, Britani.... I still don't understand about what happened last week. I just came back and I'm in the middle of this. Please tell me what's happening?
Britani Knight: Well, myself and Alicia have been working together recently and we've recently enlisted the help from her sister, Christina. And it's all for one reason... Jacqueline has what we want in our group... the Women's Championship. We don't even care which of us holds it, just as long as one of us takes it away from her. Now that you're a part of Oblivion, it only makes sense that you join us in our fight. If you want to, of course.
Britani offered her a smile.
Britani Knight: Plus, we get to work together again. It's a win-win for all of us!
Haruna only responses it with a slight smile, still confused as she puts her eyes away from Britani.
Haruna Sakazaki: Yeah, but... Jacqueline was my mentor, that's why when you three ambushed her, I just stand there and only look at you doing your job. Beside the reason that I don't know what happened there of course. But really, If I have to choose between Jacqueline and you, Of course I would choose you. You are my best buddy. And of course I love to work together with you again.
Haruna looks at Britani to her eyes again.
Haruna Sakazaki: Oh, since I just pinned Jacqueline last week, that means I will be the one who challenge her for her title. If I win that title, you won't.... hit me on my back and turn on me, right?
Britani Knight: I understand that you do have a connection with her. She taught you a lot but to us, she is the enemy. I hope that you can understand that.
She said sincerely.
Britani Knight: But when you become Women's Champion, there's no way we'd turn on you. I know we might not all be the most reliable people but you know how much you mean to me, so I'd never let that happen.
Haruna Sakazaki: yes.... I do aware of that. I don't want to do this by myself. If I have to be her enemy, I want to do this together with you. You are so meaningful to me like I am meaningful to you. Yes, for now.... I want to be on your side again. Your enemy is my enemy too, that's why, please guide me.
Haruna rounds her arm around Britani's shoulder and sincerely draws a smile on her face.
Britani Knight: Trust me... we've got your back, just like you've got ours. No doubt, we'll all get what we want from this. And I couldn't be more excited about it. Plus, tonight, we'll prove that we haven't lost our ability to work as a team.
Haruna Sakazaki: you're right.... we were once a dominant team and we will always be that way. Let's show them what we really capable of!
Haruna grabs Britani's jacket who lies beside her and give it to her. Haruna grabs her own too as she puts that jacket on. Haruna and Britani stand up together as she fist bumps and leave the locker room.
Tag Team Match: Women's Champion Jacqueline & a partner of her choice vs. Britani Knight & Haruna Sakazaki (accompanied by Alicia Fox & Christina Crawford)
Haruna Sakazaki and Britani Knight make their way down to the ring first, accompanied by Alicia Fox & Christina Crawford. The four enter the ring as Jacqueline makes her way onto the stage with a microphone in hand.
Jacqueline: It’s true. Christina... you were my only associate here in the UFWA. I thought we had a great friendship but you chose to turn on me last week and rejoin your friends over there and that’s fine. Do whatever you feel is necessary. Tonight, I’ve been given the opportunity to choose a tag partner for myself against Haruna and Britani so where was I supposed to turn?
Jacqueline: I thought about it and suddenly, there it was. Who remembers the Experience? That was, without a doubt, a highlight of my career. I know that it ended badly but this woman right here? She and I have always been on a good terms and we damn sure are now. So thank you for accepting this offer and let’s kill it, Molly Holly.
Molly makes her way onto the stage to a huge reaction from the crowd.
Molly Holly: I respect you, Jacqueline, and always will. We have a strong friendship and if you need someone to watch your back and help you out in this battle, you’ve got it.
She extended her hand to Jacqueline, who shook it as the two make their way down to the ring.
Becky Bayless: Woah! Looks like they’re back together! It’s been a while, that’s for sure.
- Britani and Haruna work perfectly as a team in the opening minutes of the match, dominating Jacqueline.
- Soon, Jacqueline turns the tables on Haruna, hammering her with a flurry of shots and ending with a neckbreaker.
- A freshly-tagged in Molly Holly remains on the attack until Britani starts to dominate following a fisherman suplex.
- Molly hits Haruna with the Molly-Go-Round to take her out, but thanks to a distraction from Alicia and Christina on the outside, Britani takes advantage by pulling her into a roll-up to steal the win!
(Winner – Britani Knight & Haruna Sakazaki)
Becky Bayless: Jackie and Molly put on an impressive performance but the numbers game got to them!
Rob Van Dam: They might need more back-up if they intend on taking on this team!
We see Oblivion’s newest acquisitions in Crimson and Nicole Franceschi walking down the hallway, hand in hand.
Nicole Franceschi: At least my sister was nice enough to keep us together? I mean, I was expecting just one of us to be drafted, if anybody. You know how bitter she can be.
Crimson: But thankfully, Punk has our back. I’m sure he must have had some say in it so I’ve got to say, I’m happy to be here.
Nicole Franceschi: Me too. It’s going to be quite a change to start wrestling on Oblivion but I’m ready for it. I mean, I’m ready to win the Queen of the Ring and that starts with taking out the Dollhouse tonight.
Crimson: And I’ll be there every step of the way.
Nicole Franceschi: Just like I’ll be there to see you become King. I know you have a far tougher challenger tonight that me, though, let’s be honest.
Crimson: I’ll agree with that. Reigns is one tough guy but so am I. Plus, we’re both going through tough times. I guess it’s going to come down to which one of us can handle it the best.
Nicole Franceschi: Well, unlike him, I know I can trust who I have in my corner. I’d still say there’s enough tension in the Shield for you to exploit.
Crimson: I intend to.
Nicole smiled back towards him as the two walked away.
Queen of the Ring Opening Round Match: Nicole Franceschi (accompanied by Crimson) vs. Marti Belle (accompanied by Jade)
Rob Van Dam: It’s time for another Queen of the Ring match!
- Marti hammers away at Nicole with a series of shots at the start of the match.
- Nicole turns the tables, but only briefly as she only manages a few shots. Marti then responds with a Bulldog.
- Marti remains in control but Nicole manages to keep holding her own.
- Marti prepares for The Hells Bells but Nicole counters with the Crushcrushcrush. She keeps Marti down for the cover to pick up the win.
(Winner - Nicole Franceschi)
Becky Bayless: Nicole with a huge win!
Rob Van Dam: Back to the drawing board for the Dollhouse!
The Hardcore Revolution’s Jimmy Jacobs is stood in front of his remaining team members in Ivelisse, Daizee Haze, Luke Harper and Delirious.
Jimmy Jacobs: We lost Kevin Owens and I know the vast majority of you are quite happy about you. That’s fine. We’ve left things on good terms so we now forget about that and think about ourselves. For example, tonight, myself and Ivelisse ensure that I take the first step into becoming the King of the Ring. It’s the one thing that has so far eluded us in this company.
Ivelisse: You’ve got it.
Jimmy Jacobs: And Daizee? You’re facing Ashley Jak tonight. I know how tough she is but you’ve got that, haven’t you?
Daizee nodded reassuringly.
Jimmy Jacobs: Just don’t worry about a thing. We’re stronger than ever before.
He said as he and Ivelisse make their exit.
King of the Ring Opening Round Match: Dean Ambrose (accompanied by Allison Wonderland) vs. Jimmy Jacobs (accompanied by Ivelisse)
Rob Van Dam: What a match this is going to be! This could easily be a finals match!
- Jacobs goes in for the kill early but Ambrose is able to fight back, giving Jacobs a battle.
- Ambrose closes in on the win but Jacobs refuses to go down without a fight.
- As expected, Allison and Ivelisse begin to exchange words but the two are soon separated.
- Ambrose prepares for the Dirty Deeds but Ivelisse hops onto the ring apron.
- Jacobs catches an off-guard Ambrose with the Contra Code and this one is over!
(Winner - Jimmy Jacobs)
Becky Bayless: It didn’t look like Ambrose was at 100% there, to be honest.
Rob Van Dam: Something was definitely holding him back and Jacobs cashed in!
We see Ashley Jak stood backstage ahead of her match, with Kenzy Black beside her.
Ashley Jak: So, we’ve successfully managed to negotiate our way towards a #1 contendership match at the tag gold and apparently, one of our opponents will be to-be-named members of the Hardcore Revolution. Tonight, I face Daizee Haze. Interesting. But I’m excited for the opportunity.
Kenzy Black: We both are. And tonight, we’re going to make sure that Daizee and the rest of the Hardcore Revolution learn that we are real threats.
Ashley Jak: So it doesn’t matter to me whether Daizee believes I’m a legitimate threat or not. She’s about to learn it right here and right now that we’re a team who has a lot to offer and we’re the next UFWA Tag Team Champions, okay?
She blew a kiss towards the camera before wandering off.
Singles Match: Daizee Haze (accompanied by Delirious) vs. Ashley Jak (accompanied by Kenzy Black)
Becky Bayless: Both the Hardcore Revolution and the team of Ashley & Kenzy will get a chance to become the number #1 Contenders to the UFWA Tag Team Championships at Independence Day.
Rob Van Dam: Two members of those teams will now tear each other apart to prove a point.
- Ashley kicks off the match in dominant fashion, striking Daizee with a series of shots, followed by the Crackajak.
- With Kenzy continuing to get involved on behalf of Ashley, Delirious soon starts to chase her around the ring as she screams.
- Eventually, Daizee regains control of the match after a Tilt-a-whirl headscissors.
- Daizee prepares for the Mind Trip but thanks to a well-time trip from Kenzy, Ashley plants her with the Ashes to Ashes and this one is over.
(Winner - Ashley Jak)
Becky Bayless: Ashley with the huge win!
Rob Van Dam: Well done to her, that wasn’t an easy opponent.
Queen of the Ring Opening Round Match: Katie Lea (accompanied by Shelly Martinez) vs. Scarlett Bordeaux
Becky Bayless: Another Queen of the Ring match! Will Katie or Scarlett advance?
- Scarlett wastes no time in throwing Katie into the corner before hitting her with a series of shots.
- Scarlett goes in for the kill early, looking for a Diving Crossbody but Katie catches her.
- From here, Katie remains in firm control, throwing Scarlett around the ring.
- Katie pulls Scarlett into a roll-up but Scarlett reverses, managing to steal the victory from out of nowhere!
(Winner - Scarlett Bordeaux)
Becky Bayless: Scarlett with a huge win! Things are still going downhill for the Anti-Divas!
Rob Van Dam: And since that was the final opening round of the night, let’s see how things are shaping up?
Rob Van Dam: Next week, we’re going to see Talia Cavenagh versus Molly Holly, Terri Runnels versus Alicia Fox and ODB versus Veda Scott.
We see Veda Scott standing backstage, talking to someone. We can’t see who that person is as they’re in the shadows and behind
Veda Scott: Okay, so just do what you’re got to do. You’ve got the money, you’ve got the resources and you’ve got the time and the place.
She nodded as she continued to bark instructions to the person in question.
Veda Scott: Do whatever is necessary... just get the job done. Okay?
Veda turned and walked away.
Becky Bayless: What the hell? Was Veda just paying someone off?
Rob Van Dam: It sounds like it. I wonder who that was and what her plans are here?
We see Roman Reigns stretching and getting ready for his huge main event match later on against Crimson in the first round of the King of the Ring.
Roman Reigns: Last week The Shield put what happened at Final Frontier in the past where it belongs. We're on the same page again and all going in the same direction once more. Now we look to the future and a new era of dominance but before that can happen we must get winning matches again and start to rebuild on our damaged foundations. Tonight I face a man who in recent months has lost the World Heavyweight Championship and his own faction so like me will be eager to find a way to get over that frustration.
Trouble is... to do that you gotta go through me and that ain't happening boy. I want to win this King of the Ring, not for me but for the glory of The Shield. I'm ready for a fight so bring it on Crimson but I'm afraid you are gonna go down son at the hands of the symbol of excellence. (raises fist)
Believe that... and believe in The Shield!
Reigns smirks and heads off camera.
Main Event; King of the Ring Opening Round Match: Crimson (accompanied by Nicole Franceschi) vs. Roman Reigns (accompanied by Allison Wonderland)
Rob Van Dam: Main Event time! And this is another match that should be a final round match!
- Crimson and Reigns trade shots in the early moments of the match before Crimson gains the upperhand following a Bicycle Kick.
- Crimson remains in control, even planting Reigns with the Double underhook DDT but Reigns powers out at two.
- Reigns quickly turns the tables after catching Crimson square in the jaw with the Superman Punch.
- Reigns prepares for the Spear but Crimson is able to leap-frog over him at the very last second. From here, Crimson catches Reigns with the Red Alert to steal the win.
(Winner - Crimson)
Becky Bayless: What a win for Crimson but much like Dean Ambrose earlier, Reigns didn’t seem to be 100% into that.
Rob Van Dam: So it seems two members of the Shield are out in round one!
Becky Bayless: Check back next week on Oblivion for Cedric Alexander versus Kofi Kingston, Tyler Black versus Corey Graves and Doug Williams versus Francesco.
Rob Van Dam: What a night it’s been! Come back next week for more!
