S3 Episode 15 Raw & Smackdown Cards
Episode #15 (July 24, 2020):
Segment: R-Truth opens Raw to announce who attacked Aleister Black. Truth says that being a detective is the hardest work he has ever done in his life and I had to one time wrestle my childhood hero John Cena! Truth says that after years of searching, he has figured out the answer to Whodunnit! Suddenly, the lights go out and Aleister Black appears and he looks as furious as ever, demanding to tell him. Truth scared and begrudged, reveals that he attacked Black because it wasn't until he was staring into the mirror and found the truth. Or me. R-Truth. I was the truth the whole time! And man I do apologize for my actions I thought I had a good memory but I guess I forgot. Black kicks Truth in the head with the fade to black. Then The New Day comes out and tells Black they despite R-Truth they have been doing their own detective work and looking at some of the evidence. 4 people attacked you Aleister. We believe that two of those people are LLC. They are a lethal tag team as we well know, but that what's weird. They know that LLC only does stuff for money, which means someone paid off LLC. Lashley & Cesaro come out and jump the four men in the ring. When things are looking rough for the New Day and Black, the Usos run to the ring with chairs where they run off Lashley and Cesaro. After a brief staredown, The Usos turn and start attacking The New Day & Black with those steel chairs! Lashley & Cesaro come back in and the four beatdown Black & New Day. Then Roman Reigns slowly walks out from the entrance to a chorus of boos. He gets on the mic and says "I did it." And the Usos and LLC continue to beat down the four and The Bloodline and LLC leave together.
