Authors Note: Marie Shadows here! I wrote this script while I worked for WWE. It never saw the light of day except for the internet. Thank you for reading and leaving a comment! My dream in the wrestling business is to be a writer/coach/agent/whatever they are calling it these days. I would love to be a wrestlers biggest cheerleader and see amazing stories come to life. Wrestling is the purest form of theater.

Five days before Royal Rumble
Welcome! Ladies and gentlemen to SmackDown Live! I'm Tom Phillips joined by Corey Graves and Byron Saxton. And guys, we have huge matches for tonight!
That's right Phillips! Tonight we’ll see Shinsuke Nakamura go against “The Perfect Ten” Tye Dillinger in a non-title United States Championship match.
Hey Corey! Don't forget about our tag team champions...THE NEW DAY in action tonight!
How could I forget SAXTON when you're the only one obsessed? That's not healthy.
I'm not obsessed. But their opponents, Sanity, are!
Alright gentlemen. Don't forget about our huge six man challenge tonight.
(Tye Dillinger theme song plays. Shinsuke Nakamura’s theme plays.)
SHINSUKE NAKAMURA vs TYE DILLINGER
Low blow attempt
Run-on: Hiroshi Tanahashi (DEBUT)
Half way through the match, Nakamura decides to get disqualified. He throws Tye into the ropes, drop to his knees and prepares to low blow a running Tye Dillinger. Before the action is completed, the lights go out.
The lights turn on. Nakamura is still on his knees, but with a shock face. A mysterious fighter towers over him, holding Nakamura’s wrist.
OH MY GOD! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! HE’S HERE! PHILLIPS, HE’S HERE!
Who is this guy?
Where did he come from Corey?
