WWE SummerSlam 2010 PPV Opener:
And the FBI is done warning us. Let’s get this show on the road! Opening video stuff is about to kick on now. Strap in, because here we go!
Typical bad-ass video package to open the show, highlighting the feuds that lead to tonight’s matches.
We are welcomed to the 2010 edition of WWE SummerSlam and it seems as though we’re about to head to the ring.
WWE Intercontinental Title:
-Dolph Ziggler vs. Kofi Kingston
And our first match is entering the ring as I thought. It will be the I-C title match between Dolph Ziggler and Kofi Kingston. Ziggler is out first, accompanied by Vickie Guerrero. Vickie has a microphone. She feels the fans aren’t paying attention enough, so she raises her voice and says the appropriate phrase to gain their attention. This has the opposite effect. She goes to repeat this cycle a few more times, but Kingston’s music hits and out comes the challenger. The bell sounds and Kingston immediately goes to work, punching the crap out of Ziggler before sending him to the floor with a clothesline. Kofi goes to follow up with a big dive, but ends up hitting the guard rail as Vickie pulled Ziggler out of the way. The guys finally get back in the ring, where Ziggler is now in firm control of the action. Ziggler works over Kofi some, Kofi makes a false-comeback and Ziggler cuts him off. This happens once or twice until Ziggler slaps a choke on him to control his movements. Kofi eventually works back to his feet and breaks the hold, which enables him to use his quickness again. Kofi is a ball of fire and is already going for his finisher. No dice. A few quick nearfalls and Ziggler hits Kofi with a Rocker Dropper to slow things down. Spoke too soon. Kofi is firing up, again going for the Trouble In Paradise kick, but again comes short. Ziggler catches Kofi in a sleeper hold.
The Nexus comes from out of nowhere and heads to the ring. They just beat down both Kingston and Ziggler. They toss Ziggler out of the ring and all surround Kingston in the ring. Kingston gives things his best shot, but the numbers game is too much and The Nexus are just destroying him. Each guy is hitting their finisher on him right now. Barrett has a mic. He says what they just did is only a taste of what’s in store for Team WWE later tonight. It doesn’t matter if they find a seventh member, because the roster is so fragmented that they can’t fight together as one to challenge the Nexus. He calls Nexus the most destructive force in WWE history. He wants everyone to know they’re either with Nexus or they’re against them.
Winner: No Contest

Backstage: Edge & Jericho Look For Member #7, The Miz?
Backstage we see Chris Jericho and The Miz. Jericho doesn’t want to say it, but eventually does — that they need Miz on their team tonight because of his unique talents. Edge is in the picture now, saying Miz is the Money In The Bank winner, and he appreciates that, but tonight isn’t about that. Edge says tonight is about seizing the opportunity. Jericho and Edge try and persuade Miz a little more, trying now to sell Miz on how blockbuster of an announcement it would be. Miz thanks them but mentions how he isn’t sure he wants Nexus on his list of priorities right now. He says he’ll let them know as he walks off. Jericho and Edge ponder what his decision will be.
WWE Divas Title:
-Alicia Fox vs. Melina
Alicia Fox is out first. Melina is out next, and our WWE Divas title match is about to get started. The girls lock up, with Melina backing Fox into a corner. Fox works Melina to the mat with a headlock but Melina doesn’t take long before working back to her feet. Melina takes Fox down now. She puts her across the ropes and does her double-knee spot on the ropes. Melina seems to hurt her knee on a spot in the corner. She seems ok now, using it to kick Fox. Fox fights back and is focusing her attack on the arm of Melina now. Melina hits the double knees on Fox again and follows up this time with the big Facebuster. She gets the pinfall and we have a new champion.
Winner and NEW WWE Divas champion: Melina
After The Match: LayCool Attacks
Josh Mathews interviews Melina in the ring about her win. This doesn’t look like a set up to something at all lol. Wouldn’t ya know it, Melina didn’t get much of her victory speech out as she is interupted by LayCool. She tells Melina she looks good but then says she was lieing. They get next to her for a picture, to capture this historical moment where all three of them are champions. Melina pushes them, which leads to a LayCool beatdown. Fox attempts to make a save, but LayCool throws her to the floor. They throw Melina to the floor now. They have Melina’s head next to the announce table on the floor. McCool kicks Melina’s head into the table and leaves her laying.

-Big Show vs. CM Punk & The Straight Edge Society
The video highlight package is airing now, as our 3-on-1 handicap match is up next. The Straight Edge Society is making their way to the ring now, along with CM Punk, who is wearing a shirt that reads "I Broke Big Show’s Hand!" The Big Show finally makes his way to the ring, and he has a big smile on his face, despite a heavily bandaged right hand. Our handicap match is officially underway! When the bell rings, Big Show has the ringside trainer cut the bandages off his hand, revealing that it’s fine. Mercury is gonna attempt to start things off with Show. Show throws him around like a ragdoll. Gallows is in now, same deal, he’s thrown around. Punk tries to regroup his guys now on the outside. Gallows and Mercury return to the ring for a double-team attempted attack, but no dice. Show fights the guys off and begins manhandling them again. He beats them down and throws them back to the floor. It’s all Big Show here early, as one would expect. Punk finally gets in the ring, but he has the same fate. A big, loud chop to the chest later and Punk rolls to the floor to get the hell away. Show follows him to the floor. Punk hits Show in the throat and attempts to stomp on his hand. Show hits the ringside steps with his hand himself, while attempting a big punch to Punk. That one hurt him. The SES use this advantage to triple team Show and soften him up. The action is back in the ring and Gallows is going to work on his hands. He hits a big splash on Show. Mercury and Gallows come off the top with elbow drops, as Punk follows up behind them with a leg-drop for good measure. Show finally makes his comeback and is clearing house now. He stacks Mercury and Gallows on top of each other and tries for a pin. Meanwhile, Punk is walking up the ramp, leaving the SES to be used as sacrificial lambs. Back in the ring, Show pins both Mercury and Gallows simaltaneously and gets the victory.
Winner: Big Show
Backstage: Sheamus Tries To Make Deal w/ Kane
Some somber sounding music is playing as we shoot backstage. We see Kane. He says tonight, he’s going to shut Mysterio in the casket and end his existance. The camera adjusts and we see Sheamus standing there. Kane asks what Sheamus wants. Sheamus tells Kane the casket is too big for Mysterio but it’s perfect for who he needs it for. Kane tells him he can’t have it. Sheamus tells Kane that’s too bad because as a unit they could be unstoppable. He tells Kane he’s going to take his nickname "Big Red Monster" instead. Sheamus says he’s the REAL Big Red Monster. Kane snickers and tells Sheamus he’s got guts …..guts that will be spilt on the floor if you interupt again. Kane stares off in the background as the segment fades off.

In-Ring: The Miz’s Answer To Jericho/Edge’s Offer
As the hype package for this match finishes, Miz’s music hits instead. He comes out and talks about Jericho/Edge’s offer from earlier tonight. He asks the crowd if he should join Team WWE. The crowd is mixed in their response. He brags about Bret Hart and John Cena wanting him to be on their teams last week. Miz calls this decision a bigger one than LeBron James had to make this year. He says he accepts their offer and will lead Team WWE to victory. He’s talking like he’s the new leader for the team, instead of a regular member. A few drawn-out "I’m awesome(s)" later and Miz is headed to the back.
