Blue Monday

October 18, 2010

CALGARY – As Team Raw prepares to make landfall at WWE Bragging Rights in just six days, the red brand found themselves awash in a stormy sea of blue when the SmackDown roster invaded Monday night.

Edge won a SmackDown vs. Raw Battle Royal

The tensions between Team Raw and Team SmackDown proved too big to be contained. What was to be a match pitting Raw’s Team Captain, The Miz, against SmackDown’s Team Captain, Big Show, ended up escalating into an explosive Battle Royal.

When Show entered the ring, he called upon his fellow SmackDown Superstars to join him. Faced with a stormy sea of blue, Miz then enlisted his brand’s roster to unite behind him as well. The blue and red collision threatened to spiral out of control, until Theodore Long arranged a SmackDown vs. Raw Battle Royal.

With bodies flying and loyalties tested, it was Edge who would prevail by sending Sheamus over the top rope with just six days until he and Team SmackDown head into battle at WWE Bragging Rights.

Team SmackDown invaded Raw; Big Show challenged The Miz to a match

With SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long leading the charge, the blue brand’s team for WWE Bragging Rights invaded Raw. Long appeared to relish introducing Team SmackDown, including captain Big Show, Edge, Alberto Del Rio, Kofi Kingston, Jack Swagger, Tyler Reks & Rey Mysterio.

The seven interlopers paraded around the ring until Team Raw’s captain, The Miz, confronted them and presented members of the red squad, including CM Punk, John Morrison, Santino Marella, Sheamus and newest member, Ezekiel Jackson.

The two teams scuffled after Team SmackDown refused to exit the ring. Once the air had cleared, Show challenged his counterpart, Miz, to a match later in the evening. Bolstered by his teammates, Mr. Money in the Bank accepted.
