King of the Ring 2015 Pay-Per-View Event
1. Quarter Finals Match in the 2015 King of the Ring Tournament
Randy Orton vs. Dean Ambrose
In this match Dean Ambrose would pick up a big victory over Randy Orton to open King of the Ring 2015 therefore he advances to face Bad News Barrett in the Semi Finals.
2. Quarter Finals Match in the 2015 King of the Ring Tournament
Cesaro vs. Bray Wyatt w/Bo Dallas
At Payback 2015 Bo Dallas sided with his brother Bray Wyatt to form a team, this led into this match where Cesaro would ultimately hit the Swing and the Neutralizer to defeat Bray Wyatt.
3. Quarter Finals Match in the 2015 King of the Ring Tournament
Hideo Itami vs. John Cena
I am going to have John Cena put over Hideo Itami in this match since at this point in his career that's what he is here to do. Itami would hit the GTS on John Cena and pin him 1...2...3 to advance into the Smi Finals to face Cesaro in a babyface match.
4. Singles Match for the Intercontinental Championship
Daniel Bryan (C) vs. Rusev
Following their double count-out both men would be saying how the other cost them their chance at being King of the Ring. Daniel Bryan would tell Rusev that he will put the Intercontinental Championship on the line at King of the Ring to teach him a lesson in respect. In this match Rusev would catch Daniel Bryan with a championship belt shot to his head before delivering a brutal beatdown then signalling for something. Triple H comes out and restarts the match where Rusev locks in the Accolade on Daniel Bryan and Bryan is unconscious so the referee stops the match.
5. Semi Finals Match in the 2015 King of the Ring Tournament
Bad News Barrett vs. Dean Ambrose
In this match Dean Ambrose would be in control until Bad News Barrett got a roll-up where he had both legs leaning on the ropes therefore Ambrose couldn't kick out and Bad News Barrett advanced to the Main Event to face either Cesaro or Hideo Itami.
6. Semi Finals Match in the 2015 King of the Ring Tournament
Cesaro vs. Hideo Itami
This match would be a wrestling classic and I would give it 15 minutes before Cesaro would connect with the European Uppercuts then a Neutralizer to defeat Hideo and advance to the Final.
7. Singles Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Seth Rollins (C) w/J and J Security vs. Roman Reigns
This match would be the first match between these two with them having the match again at Money in the Bank next month. Seth Rollins would hit the Phoenix Splash and Reigns would get his foot on the ropes but the referee didn't see it therefore Rollins retains the WWE World Heavyweight Title.
8. Final Match in the 2015 King of the Ring Tournament; Winner Faces the WWE World Heavyweight Champion at SummerSlam 2015
Cesaro vs. Bad News Barrett
This match would only last about 7 minutes since both men would be exhausted, in the end however Cesaro would hit the Neutralizer to pin BNB and Become the 2015 King of the Ring therefore he faces the WWE World Heavyweight Champion at SummerSlam 2015.
The Winner of the 2015 King of the Ring Tournament is Cesaro
Aftermath; Post King of the Ring Storylines-Money in the Bank 2015 PPV
The night after this Cesaro would be cutting a promo about how he is going to SummerSlam 2015 and become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, when Brock Lesnar came out. Heyman would tell Cesaro that Brock Lesnar has been sitting at home for three months therefore he can finally comeback into the WWE. When Lesnar heard about this stipulation he was irate since Lesnar deserves to fight Seth Rollins in the Main Event of SummerSlam 2015. This sets up a match between these two at Money in the Bank 2015 where the winner faces the WWE World Heavyweight Champion at Summerslam 2015. Brock Lesnar would defeat Cesaro although Cesaro would put up one hell of a fight.
Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns would continue their feud over the WWE World Heavyweight Championship which would lead to the culmination at Money in the Bank in a No Holds Barred Match for the title where Seth Rollins would scrape through with his championship after hitting Reigns with a wicked Curb Stomp on the floor.
The next night on RAW it was decided that there would be MITB Qualifying Matches with the winners going into a Money in the Bank Ladder Match for a WWE World Heavyweight Championship Contract. This would ultimately be contested between Bad News Barrett, Randy Orton, Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt w/Bo Dallas, Dolph Ziggler, Sheamus, Neville and Ryback and would be won by Dean Ambrose who desperately needs this victory.
The Intercontinental Championship would be defended between Champion Rusev and Daniel Bryan who would say that Rusev is just a coward who can't defeat Daniel Bryan at 100%. In this match Rusev would retain the Intercontinental Championship via The Accolade.
John Cena would defend his United States Championship against the man who defeated him at the King of the Ring Pay Per View Hideo Itami. John Cena was looking to get redemption from his loss against Hideo, the match would result with a double pinfall between Cena and Itami therefore would Retain the United States Championship.
The Lucha Dragons would challenge The New Day for the WWE Tag Team Championships saying that they are the hottest Tag Team in the company today and that they deserve a shot at the titles. They get the shot at Money in the Bank and they end up winning the Tag Team Titles from The New Day.
