Chapter 78 is here and 2020 has been such a horrible year. We have lost so many lives and so many good people have been lost. We lost recently Jonathan Huber aka Luke Harper aka Mr. Brodie Lee. A very good man, who was loved by the fans and by those who knew him.
I'm glad that the wrestling community came together and are sharing their stories about him. Also, glad WWE was able to put aside their problems with the company and paid tribute to him. AEW I have no doubt will do the same and the wrestlers from all promotions will support the family. Also, happy that the fans have shown respect towards him and his family.
Now, it is now time for the Clash of Champions show. I'm sorry for not getting this chapter up yesterday, but I wanted to make sure this was a good chapter. Also, I wanted to let you all know after this chapter, I will be slow to update since I'll be getting back to my three stories too. So, it might take a while to get them out.
So, I hope you will be okay with it. Now, how will things go today? Will we crown some new champions, or will all the champions find a way to retain the gold? Check out the chapter to find out.
All right, well with what being said we should get started with the disclaimer. I don't own anything from WWE. I only own my OC Ruby Nite. Although, let's be honest do they own the people themselves? Probably not.
Still, better safe than sorry. Now, let the chapter begin.
Reign of the Champions
Honolulu, Hawaii 9/1/19
Ruby was at her hotel with Kairi, preparing to go to New York next week for their Madison Square Garden show. Ruby was supposed to be on Raw tomorrow, but due to an incident with the plane, she wouldn't be able to make it. The office was fine with this and asked her to instead make a promo for tomorrow night. So, Ruby had to call a friend of hers, who has a little studio.
So, Ruby will be able to go down there to make her promo. It would be quick though and she'll be able to spend the rest of the week with Kairi. The two had finished going over everything for their wedding. And luckily it wasn't going to be complicated.
They had decided to make it nice and simple. They aren't hiring someone to do it for them. Their families are going to set up the decorations, the area, and they will make the food. Ruby never liked having these people who make weddings so expensive. Making everything look so fancy, have all the food look fancy, and keep everyone on schedule.
Ruby and Kairi decided they will have their wedding be the way they want it. Nice, normal, and simple.
Kairi came into the room wearing her shorts, short top that stopped above her belly, and her sunglasses as she walks over to Ruby. "Arimasu. Mōsugu junbi wa īdesu ka? Kono puromōshon o kanryō shite bīchi ni iku koto ga dekiru yō ni, sutajio ni iku hitsuyō ga arimasu." (There you are. Are you almost ready? We need to get to the studio, so we can get this promo done and go to the beach)
Ruby nods in response as she puts away her laptop. "I was just finishing contacting AJ and asking to see if he'll be coming to the wedding."
"Watashi wa kare ga kuru koto o shitte imasu. Asuka o shitte iru yō ni, hokanohito mo kekkonshiki ni kurudeshou," said Kairi knowing her friends, including Io will be joining them.
(I know he will come. Just like I know Asuka, and the others will be coming to the wedding too)
Kairi goes to the closet and pulls out a large straw hat, which she got for Ruby and placed it on her head. "Are you ready for next week?" she asked.
Ruby giggled softly and fixes the hat before she nods. "Am I ready to compete in Madison Square Garden for the show? Hell yeah. What about you? You ready to compete in your first MSG show?"
Kairi nods in response but did seem to hesitate in her response. "Still nervous though."
Ruby understood why. She was nervous too. It wasn't her first MSG show, but it was for Kairi's and she knew why. The arena has a lot of history. It is where a lot of historical moments in wrestling had occurred and when a wrestler competes there, they want to do something that will be remembered.
Ruby placed her hands on Kairi and smiles at her fiancé. "Don't think too much about this. You've got this. All you have to do is focus on the match itself, don't worry about the fans, and give it all you've got. While of course being safe."
Ruby knows Kairi can do this and she just needs a little bit of help. Kairi appreciates Ruby supporting her and for believing in her, despite the doubts she has. She leans up and kisses her on the lips, which caused Ruby to kiss her back. The two kept kissing until they moved back.
They both smiled and Kairi grabs Ruby's hands as she held them. "Issho ni ite kurete totemo rakkīdesu." (I am very lucky to have you with me."
Ruby grasps her hands back and nods. "And I am lucky to have you with me."
Ruby looks over to see the time and sighed. "Time to get going. Once we finish, we should go hiking. I know a good place where we can find a lot of cool rocks."
Kairi let's out a small chuckle and sighed. "Just as long as we go to the beach afterwards."
"Deal," said Ruby as she puts her laptop away and they head out to spend their day together.
She grabs her hat and puts it on before she heads out of the hotel room with Kairi. She couldn't wait to spend the day with her and hope she'll have a good time, before they go back on their busy schedule again.
Monday Night Raw 9/9/19
The show opens in the most famous arena in the country, Madison Square Garden, in New York City, New York. The same arena where the first WrestleMania took place on March 31, 1985. The same arena where many historical wrestling moments and matches was born. From Hulk Hogan winning his first WWE Championship and Hulkamania was born.
The same arena where Stone Cold Steve Austin hit his first Stunner to Vince McMahon. The first ever Elimination Chamber match, which Shawn Michaels won and became world champion. The same arena where Triple H became a main eventer after defeating Cactus Jack in a Street Fight match. And the same arena where Eddie Guerrero successfully defended his WWE Championship against Kurt Angle, through shenanigans of course.
There have been many great historical moments for the show and the fans couldn't wait for tonight. The setup was a lot like from 2009, including where the entrance stage is at. The fans couldn't wait for tonight, especially the huge lineup for the night. There has been talks that some SmackDown talent are showing up for tonight.
The show kicks off with the WWE Raw World Tag Team Champions, the Motor City Machine Guns facing off against the Authors of Pain in a Lumberjack match. With the Street Profits, War Raiders, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, Wes Briscoe, and Garett Bischoff around ringside.
The fans cheered loudly for the champions, while booing loudly at their opponents. The match has the Guns taking control and avoided getting powered down by their opponents. All while even avoiding getting attacked by the lumberjacks on the outside. However, the AOP took full control after Briscoe and Bischoff distracted Shelly.
This allowed Rezar to hit him with a Clothesline from the apron to the floor. AOP took full control of the match as they beat down their opponent down. Sabin tried to get his partner to tag him in, but the AOP made sure to keep him from getting tagged in. They even had Briscoe and Bischoff distract the referee, while even pulling him off the apron.
This caused some of the teams on the outside to fight each other, but the referee made sure to keep them apart. So, the match keeps going until Sabin managed to kick his opponents away and hits the Slice Bread on Rezar! Shelly then hits a Tornado DDT on Akam taking him out as the crowd cheered loudly.
Chris Sabin soon gets tagged in and begins taking out his two opponents as the crowd cheered loudly. Sabin gets the crowd going and begins running wild. Sabin soon dives to the outside and dives to the outside taking them out. However, the moment he took them out, Bischoff and Briscoe attacked him from behind.
This soon caused the Street Profits to attack them, but this also caused the Good Brothers to attack them. War Raiders soon got involved as a brawl begins breaking out. Hanson even slides into the ring and dives through the ropes to take everyone out. Shelly goes to the top rope and got the crowd going before he dives to land on everyone as they begin getting up.
Shelly and Sabin got Akam in the ring before they go to finish him off with the Made in Detroit. Until, Rezar pushed Shelly off the top rope and he lands on the outside hitting the barricade. Sabin hits the Superkick to Rezar, causing him to stagger. Sabin hits the ropes and goes for a big move, but then Rezar hits him with a Clothesline.
AOP soon hit the Last Chapter! They go for the pin getting one…two…and three! The Authors of Pain have defeated the champions and have won the match. The crowd begin booing loudly as the referee raises their hands up. Wes Briscoe and Garett Bischoff got in the ring as they begin celebrating with their teammates.
The four of them knew it didn't matter who wins this Sunday at Clash of Champions. What matters is that two of them win the titles, no matter what. Bully Ray came out with Velvet Sky on the entrance stage before they begin applauding the performance of their group. Knowing that this Sunday, Aces & Eights will walk out with the titles.
The next match with Becky Lynch going one-on-one with Sasha Banks in a Steel Cage match. The two former best friends went up against each other one-on-one, with Jasmine and Olivia unable to get involved in the match. Becky started the match attacking Sasha before she got in the ring. Becky wanted to get back at Sasha for what she has done to her for weeks.
She slams her opponent into the side of the cage repeatedly, as the fans cheered. Sasha though took back control after raking her eyes and throwing her into the cage. The match soon began and Sasha took full control of the match as she used the no disqualification rules to her advantage. She began choking Becky on the top rope and yells at her saying she brought this on herself.
Sasha tried to escape the cage, but Becky stopped her and begins regaining control of the match. Becky even hit an Exploder Suplex from the top rope to the mat. The fans cheered for both women and chanted their names. Becky soon begins hitting her comeback moves and regains the momentum she had lost earlier. Becky and Sasha each tried to lock in their submission holds, but each one countered the other and tried to avoid getting the hold locked in.
Sasha managed to take Becky down and tries to escape the cage, but Olivia came out to keep her from escape over the cage and through the door. This allowed Becky to lock in the Dis-Arm-Her and almost got the submission win, but then Jasmine came out to attack Olivia. She throws her into the cage door before throwing her into the barricade. Jasmine tries to get into the ring, but Becky let's go of the hold and runs over to hit a Dropkick to the cage door.
The door hits Jasmine and knocks her into the barricade. Becky goes back to finish Sasha off, but Sasha pushes her into the exposed turnbuckle that Sasha had exposed. Sasha used this chance to escape the cage and wins the match. However, the moment she escaped the cage, Jasmine attacks her.
Jasmine throws her into the cage wall and soon takes her in front of the cage so she can throw her headfirst. Until Olivia runs over and leaps into the two women. Olivia begins attacking both women as it soon turns into a brawl. Raw general manager Adam Pearce came out and orders security to break up the women.
The women continued fighting each other, even with security trying to break them apart. The fans begin cheering loudly as they see Becky Lynch making her way to the top of the cage. Becky looks down to see the group down below and yells loudly before she dives off the cage! Becky lands on the women and security down below, taking them all out!
The fans gave a big pop and began chanting "Holy Shit!" repeatedly. Becky slowly got to her feet and screams as the fans cheered for her. Becky's theme song begins to play as Becky stands tall. While her opponents all remain on the ground, completely out of it.
Becky may have lost the match, but she has gained momentum going into her title match this Sunday. One way or another, she will win back her title and once again reign over as the Man!
Bully Ray is seen backstage getting ready for his upcoming Street Fight match with John Cena. Bully was looking forward to this match and he couldn't wait to get his hands on him. The condition though to get this match, is that his buddies couldn't get involved. Bully was fine with this and once they won their match tonight, he gave them the night off.
Bully wanted to show everyone why he deserves to be in the WWE title match. Why he deserves it more than John Cena, who is only in this because of his connection with Vince McMahon. Bully will make sure though that tonight, he will show why he deserves to be in this match. He isn't going to let what he has worked for nearly three-decades be for nothing.
Tonight, he will take down John Cena and at Clash of Champions, he will become WWE Champion.
Bully looks over to see Devon entering the room and the two had a serious look on their faces. Devon took out a barbed wire chair and hands it to his friend. Bully took the chair and smiled softly. The two embraced in a hug and Devon begins walking away.
The two didn't need to say anything. They knew each other for so long, that they both know they will always support one another, and Bully knows that Devon will be there for him no matter what.
Meanwhile, Seth is seen pacing back and forth down a hallway as he got ready for tonight's tag match. He's going to be teaming up with Kofi Kingston from SmackDown Live. So, the two can go up against the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Dolph Ziggler and the WWE Champion, Ruby Takashi. The fans couldn't wait for tonight, but Seth wasn't one of them.
Seth was in a bad mood after what happened last week. He had a match against Bully Ray, where he was hoping to show why he deserves his rematch. He was also upset that he wasn't getting his one-on-one rematch against Ruby. He knows he can beat her one-on-one.
He was promised if he won his match against Bully, he would get a one-on-one title match against Ruby next week. However, if he lost, he would have to team up with Kofi to fight Ruby and Ziggler.
Seth came close to beating Bully, until Cena got involved. Cena was out there to stop Aces & Eights from getting involved. However, Cena accidentally distracted the referee, just as Seth hit the Curb Stomp. Seth got angry with what Cena is telling and tells him to stay out of his match.
This allowed Bully to get a Roll-up on Seth and used the ropes to get the three-count. Bully got his win over Seth, while Seth looked angry at what Cena did.
Seth wasn't happy about tonight and didn't want to compete tonight, just six days before the PPV.
Seth turns around and sees Ruby walking towards him. "You have five seconds to walk the other way, before I put you down."
"Easy there, Seth. I came to talk," said Ruby as she moves her hands up to show she comes in peace.
"You came to talk? I don't care," said Seth as he begins taping up his wrists.
"You don't want to talk? Fine, then just listen. I get why you're mad and honestly? I would have loved to face off against you tonight," said Ruby as she sees Seth stopped taping his wrists and appeared intrigue what she is saying. "I mean, think about it. You and I have had so many battles here in New York back in our Ring of Honor days. We fought over the ROH World title and even the NWA world title. We always stole the show and we always came out on top."
Seth knew what Ruby is saying isn't a lie. They used to have a lot of fights in New York and always stole the show. He defeated her and she defeated him. They even teamed up a few times as well.
"If John Cena hadn't selfishly gotten involved in your match last week, we could have had a rematch here tonight. In Madison Square Garden," said Ruby knowing how big their match could have been if they fought here in the MSG arena. "But sadly, Cena cost you your match and now he gets his own one-on-one match against Bully. Yes, we have our main event, but you know Cena is going to do all he can to steal the show and the spotlight. Even make sure he gets involved in our match."
Ruby let's out a small sigh, before patting Seth on the back. "But hey! Maybe he won't. Who's the say, but we both have known that glory hog for years now. So, we both know how far he'll go to make sure that tonight, ends with him getting the spotlight."
Ruby then begins walking off, while having a cocky smile on her face. She knows there has been a lot of anger building up inside of Seth for weeks now. She knows it and knows that if she pushes him in the right direction, he'll do exactly what she knows he will do. And that's exactly what she's hoping for.
Seth looks away from Ruby and couldn't help but think about what she said. A part of him knows she's up to something and shouldn't listen to her. The other part of him though, couldn't help but agree with what she said and knows he might have to do something about Cena getting involved in his match tonight. If he does, then he'll have to take care of it.
The show continued with the WWE HIT Champion EC3, the WWE United States Champion Andrade with Zelina Vega, and AJ Styles come out for a Six-man Tag Team match. They face off against R-Truth, Ricochet, and Aleister Black. The crowd got behind the good guys, including R-Truth, who got a big pop from the fans. EC3 and his team came out last, with EC3 beginning to mock the fans and their opponents.
EC3 mocks Aleister for being an idiot in trusting a guy who turned his back on him. Yet here they are, teaming once again and for what? Ricochet is only using Aleister to look out for him, because he knows he can't beat a great champion like Andrade and a phenomenal world champion like AJ Styles. EC3 then mocks Ricochet for being such a coward, because he needs someone to protect him, showing everyone how spineless he is.
EC3 then turns to R-Truth and reminds him that at Clash of Champions, this is his last chance to win his title. If he loses, then he has to retire, which is going to happen. Why? Because history has a way of repeating itself.
EC3 proves this by showing a highlight video of R-Truth's failure in WWE. How he never won the big one, how he never became a successful champion, how he was only seen as a comedy joke, and how that's all he ever will be. He then ends the video with EC3 beating R-Truth not once, but also beat him up so badly, that he was out for weeks. EC3 and his partners begin mocking Truth, who is given a mic and begins to speak.
Truth knows what EC3 said wasn't a lie, it was the truth. For years, he was seen as a joke, for years he played the company stooge, and for years he went along with everything he was told to be. He never tried making waves, because he knows at this point of his age, he couldn't. Not if it means cutting off what is keeping his family and himself afloat.
Truth knows that at Clash of Champions, that could all end for him. He could retire at the show and never step foot in this ring again…however, he didn't come back to just give up. Truth isn't going to give up so easily and let his family down. Truth tells EC3, AJ Styles, Andrade, his own partners, and the fans that R-Truth isn't going to Clash of Champions to lose! At Clash of Champions, he's coming to kick EC3's ass and become the new WWE HIT Champion!
And if he goes down, then he'll make damn sure EC3 goes down with him!
The fans popped loudly for R-Truth and soon the match began as a brawl broke out. The good guys took full control of the match and knocked their opponents to the outside. R-Truth, Ricochet, and Aleister all dived to the outside, taking down their opponents. They got the crowd behind them before the match went into commercial break.
The show came back with Aleister taking down Andrade and keeping him tagging his partners. Andrade rakes his opponent's eyes and soon tags in EC3. However, Aleister took him down with a kick to the face and goes for a big move. Until Ricochet makes the blind tag.
Ricochet soon got in the ring and begins taking down his opponent. He begins hitting some of his big moves and begins mocking Andrade. This backfired on Ricochet as EC3 trips him on the top middle rope. EC3 begins distracting the referee, which allowed AJ and Andrade to attack him.
Soon the bad guys begin wearing down Ricochet and try keeping him from making the tag in. They even distracted the referee to allow the bad guys to continue cheating. They even attempted to attack Ricochet's partners and keep a tag from being made. AJ soon goes for the finish and hit the Phenomenal Forearm.
Ricochet though managed to roll forward to avoid the hit and hits the Springboard Tornado DDT! The crowd cheered as both men were soon down, and the referee begins making the ten-count. Giving both men until the count of ten to make the tag or get to their feet or both will lose the match. Both men managed to make the tag with EC3 and R-Truth getting tagged in!
R-Truth begins running wild and take down EC3 as the fans cheered loudly. The crowd cheered for Truth as he begins hitting his signature moves and even took down EC3's partners. R-Truth got the fans going wild as he prepared to finish off EC3, until he made the tag to Andrade. R-Truth tags in Aleister and goes chasing after EC3, who ran through the crowd to escape.
Aleister goes for the Black Mass, but Andrade avoids it and Clotheslines him over the top rope. Andrade distracts the referee, to allow Zelina to hit a Hurricarana to Aleister. Aleister though saw this coming and instead, lifts her up for a Powerbomb. Andrade goes in to make the save and pull her to safety, but this allowed Aleister to hit the Black Mass!
Aleister throws Andrade in to make the pin, but AJ Styles hits the Phenomenal Forearm! AJ got up and the fans cheered for the Phenomenal One! Until Ricochet leaps off the top rope to hit a Missile Dropkick! AJ gets knocked down to the mat and rolls to the outside.
Ricochet saw his chance and gets to his apron before tagging himself in. Ricochet goes to the top rope and hits the 630 Back Senton! Ricochet goes for the cover getting one…two…and three! Ricochet just pinned the WWE United States Champion!
The crowd cheered loudly as Ricochet got his hand raised, while Aleister is still trying to recover from the Phenomenal Forearm. R-Truth stood by at ringside as he watched EC3 escape through the crowd. At Clash of Champions, EC3 will have nowhere to run. R-Truth will get his hands on him and he will become the new WWE HIT Champion.
And Ricochet knows that if he pins Andrade again at the PPV, then he'll become the new WWE United States Champion. With the show six days away, the fans couldn't wait to see what was going to happen.
The next match has the WWE Women's Intercontinental Champion, Gail Kim facing off against the WWE SmackDown Women's Champion, Ember Moon. The crowd cheered loudly for Ember as she made her way towards the ring. All while Gail Kim came out getting booed by the crowd. The two women soon went at it as they went back and forth.
Gail had taken control early on, until Ember managed to take control back and knocked her opponent to the outside. She then took her down after hitting a Moonsault to the outside. Ember had the fans behind her as she throws Gail in the ring, until Charlotte Flair came out to distract her. This allowed Gail to clip Ember's left leg and takes full control.
Charlotte went to ringside and watch the rest of the match, as Gail continued targeting the injured leg. The fans booed loudly at Gail as she mocks the fans and even mocks Ember. Ember tries fighting back and regain control of the match, but each time she tries, Gail would take shortcuts.
Whether by raking her eyes or trips her against the top middle rope. She even began choking her, which allowed Charlotte to attack her. Gail distracted the referee to help her do this and soon Ember works to try locking in the Figure-Four Leglock. Ember screamed in pain and tried to break free of the hold.
Charlotte begins mocking Ember and got close to the ring to make fun of her. Ember manages to roll her opponent over and then slaps Charlotte in the face. The fans cheered for this as Gail managed to break the hold and tried to get up. Ember soon begins making her comeback as she takes down Gail.
Ember hits some of her best moves, while even ducking a Clothesline and hits a Suicide Dive to take Charlotte out. Gail goes after her, but Ember took her down and soon threw her into the ring. Ember soon goes for the Eclipse, but Gail pushed the referee into the ropes and knocks Ember off the top rope. Gail grabs her opponent and goes for the Eat Defeat, but Ember held on to her leg and then trips her up.
Ember then slingshots her into the corner and knock her opponent on the top turnbuckle. Ember then sees her opponent begin getting up and Ember hits the Superkick! Ember goes to the top rope and then hits the Eclipse! Ember goes for the cover getting one…two…three!
Ember Moon got the win and defeated Gail Kim!
Ember's celebration though is cut short as Charlotte Flair came into the ring to attack her. The crowd begins to boo loudly as Charlotte begins kicking her repeatedly down. Gail begins to slowly recover and join in attacking Ember as well. Until *Turn It Up* begins to play causing the fans to pop loudly.
Bayley soon came out and rushes to the ring to make the save. Bayley begins attacking Charlotte Flair and Gail Kim as she helps Ember. Ember begins helping her and the two begin taking their opponents out. The two women took out Charlotte and Gail as the fans cheered loudly.
Bayley turns to Ember as the fans cheer them both on. The two women know they are opponents this Sunday at Clash of Champions. But for tonight? They are allies.
The two embraced in a hug and pose for the fans as they get cheered on.
John Cena versus Bully Ray one-on-one in a Street Fight match. Cena got a great reaction from the crowd, but Bully got a big pop from the fans. They even began chanting "ECW" repeatedly. The two men soon began brawling as they faced off against one another.
Both men brawled up on the ramp and around ringside before fighting in the ring. They even began pulling out weapons to use against one another. The fans cheered for both men and didn't quiet down throughout the match. The two men brawled through the crowd and began fighting around the arena.
Bully had taken control early on, but Cena took back control during the middle part of the match. Until Bully once more took control. Both men went back and forth until they fought their way back to ringside. Cena and Bully even ended up hitting their best moves on one another.
With Cena hitting the AA through the announce table, while Bully hit the Cutter through a table. Both men were bleeding and were hurting. Both couldn't put the other away, while the fans cheered on. They even chanted "This is Awesome!" repeatedly.
Both men knew they were close to their end and they begin setting up for the finish. Bully got caught in the STF and Cena tried to make him tap out. Until Devon Dudley came out and hits Cena with the barbed wire chair. The crowd cheered and even begin chanting "Table!"
Devon helps his partner up and begins getting a table, a glass table. Devon sets it inside the ring, so they can hit the 3D and put Cena through it. However, Seth Rollins came out and attacked Devon. The crowd gave a mixed reaction from this as Seth begins beating down Devon.
Cena took advantage and hits Bully with the AA! However, before he can make the pin, Seth rushes into the ring and begins attacking Bully. Cena got confused by this and pulls Seth off telling him to stat out of the match. Seth pushes Cena away and tells him to stay out of it.
This was clearly payback that Seth was looking for as he wanted to get back at Bully for losing to him last week. Cena though pulls Seth off and tells him to get out. Seth slaps Cena in the face and tells him to stay out of this or else. The crowd booed loudly at Seth as he goes to attack Bully again.
Until Cena grabs Seth and hits the AA! The crowd gave a mixed reaction to this as Cena tells Seth he made him do this. He gets Seth out of the ring and continues yelling at him for what he had him do. Unaware that Devon set the glass table up in the middle of the ring and soon the Dudley Boyz hit the 3D!

Soon the champions begin targeting Carmella's leg and tried to keep her from making the tag.

The two teams know this Sunday is important for both sides and know only one team will walk out with those titles.
Olivia Knight is seen backstage going over her upcoming title match for this Sunday. Olivia knows how important this match is and she know this is going to be a tough match. She knows this is her first singles' title match since last year. This is a huge opportunity for her and she couldn't wait to see how she's going to do.
She knows she is up against two former women's champions in the form of Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch. However, her biggest challenge is Jasmine Strong. She knows how tough she is and knows how beating her won't be easy. However, it is a four-way match.
So, all she has to do is pin Becky or Sasha to win. She just has to play it smart and she'll win.
She prepares to leave, when she sees Luna walking in. "Hey girlfriend, what are you doing here?!"
Olivia embraces her friend in a big hug and couldn't believe she's here. Luna returns the hug and giggled softly.
"I just came to see how you are doing," said Luna as she has her mask on and soon breaks he hug. "I wanted to also wish you luck for this Sunday. I know this is a really important match for you. I'm sorry I won't be there at ringside when you win. Doctors told me I need to wait another month before I can be back in the ring."
Olivia understood and is just glad her concussion isn't as serious as they thought. But they still need to keep her out of the ring to make sure nothing else was wrong.
"Well, I know wherever you are, I know you'll always support me. Just like I know if the shoe was on the other foot, I would support you too," said Olivia who is just glad her friend is here.
Luna knows Olivia is right about what she said and is just glad she's getting the title match. "Oh, before I forget…" Luna pulls out a bag and hands it to her. "Mi hermano, made this for you. I hope you are okay with this."
Olivia looks in the bag and couldn't help but smile. "How much do I owe your brother?"
Luna shook her head. "I paid for it."
Olivia sighed softly and shook her head. "Luna, I appreciate this, but you should let me pay for the stuff your brother makes for us. I don't like it when you do that."
"I know, but I wanted to. You know how you can pay me back? Kick Jasmine, Sasha, and Becky's ass for me, okay?" Luna asked.
Olivia took another small breath and then let's out a small sigh before she nods. "Fine…thank you, Luna."
Olivia knows it won't be easy, but she'll do what she can to keep her promise. And hey, if she wins the title then that will make them more even. The two embraced in a hug and Olivia puts her bag away. She'll need to keep it safe until Clash of Champions, when she'll get the opportunity to show it off.
The show continued with Drew McIntyre and Buddy Murphy facing off against one another. Buddy wanted this match after he felt he was screwed out of his chance to be in the United States title match.

Ruby is in the back taping up her hands as she got ready for her title match. She knows she is going to be in the main event and needed to be ready. It is an elimination match, so she needs to make sure she will be able to outlast the three challengers. So, she can find a way to retain her title.
She'll need to play it smart. She already got Seth to turn on Cena. So, she just needs to let them beat the hell out of each other. Hell, she doesn't even need to do anything in this match.
Just stay out of it and let the three idiots fight it out. Let them wear each other down until only one is left. She then can go in and take that person out. She's not an idiot.
She isn't going to do something risky to prove something. She has nothing to prove to anyone, not even these traitorous fans.
As she got ready, she sees in the monitor nearby John Cena, Seth Rollins, and Bully Ray all getting ready too. With the backstage interviewers speaking to each of them.
Seth showing he doesn't trust Cena and will do whatever it takes to win tonight. He knows Cena will do the exact same thing and stab him in the back, like he has done for weeks. Cena talking about Seth's delusion he has about what has been going on, how he is being manipulated, and how he hasn't turned on him. Cena though knows he will do whatever it takes to win, because he knows Seth, Bully, and Ruby will do the same.
Bully doesn't care what everyone thinks about him or what problems Cena and Seth have. He's glad for it, since it will make his job easier tonight. It means he'll be one step closer to beating them all to become the WWE Champion. To take what is rightfully his.
He calls Cena a glory hog who only cares about himself, Seth a steppingstone for him to walk over to claim his glory, and Ruby the only legit threat to him. However, much like everyone that has stood in his way, she too will fall.
"I'll fall huh?" said Ruby as she chuckled to herself. "Be careful what you say, Bully. Because like all those who have talked about beating me, you'll end up the same place I have put them in. On the ground, with me standing on top."
Ruby knows Bully's minions might get involved tonight. So, she'll need to speak with Adam Pearce to ensure that doesn't happen. She has ways of manipulating people into getting what she wants. And if she tells Pearce that it won't look well for him if Aces & Eights ruin his main event on his watch, especially if the bosses are watching.
"Let's see how you do without your boys, Bully," said Ruby as she got her title and decides to go pay Kairi a visit before the main event. "Maybe I might get a good luck kiss from her…ah who am I kidding, of course I will."

"You aren't happy with how things have been going. I get that, but you shouldn't let it get to you. Your better than that and you know it. You know you are better than this and if you let this get to you, then you won't win tonight," said Roman as he tries to help his friend. "Tonight, it is your night and you have a chance to make a wrong right. Tonight, you have a chance to take back what is yours and prove to everyone why you deserve this. You just need to stay focus, use what got you here, and be smart. You do that and you'll walk out here tonight as a four-time world champion."

Just use what got him to where he's at and he'll win. Seth nods and pats his friend on the shoulder.
