S4 Episode 1 Raw & Smackdown Cards
Episode #1 (November 6, 2020):
Segment: Keith Lee opens Raw. He says that he wanted to return with a bang and he felt like he left quite the impression at Hell in a Cell. I am your WWE Champion WWE universe. I have returned to you all. I have one person to thank and that is after all my main man Aleister Black. Now, we will get to him later but I wanted to continue my return and not make it all about me. Survivor Series is upon us which means Champions of Raw take on the Champions of Smackdown. I know, I can't wait to crush Sami Zayn either. But I wanted to make this road more interesting. You see, I pushed my weight around in the back, I'm not ashamed of it, and I pitched the idea of having every Raw Championship defended between now and Survivor Series. It's a bold move I know. I want to make sure that we have the best of the very best taking on Smackdown. And iron can only sharpen when you turn up the heat, so let's crank that baby up. Ciampa's music hits. Ciampa grabs the mic and says that I'm fairly new here Keith but I'm pretty sure I don't have to defend anything without my saw. What makes you think that can come here and have all of us defend our titles. Keith tells Ciampa to calm down. First, everyone is defending their titles. Including me. And to make it fair, the champions get to choose their challenger. And I know you, Ciampa. You will not choose the easy way here. You are a fighter. You want the challenge. Pick anyone on the roster to defend your title too. Prove yourself. But think about it, Ciampa. You've got time. As for me, my match is happening tonight. And I'll announce it here. I will defend my WWE Championship tonight against the very man that saved my life, Aleister Black!

Segment: Backstage segment with Edge & Daniel Bryan. Edge says he's happy with winning gold on Sunday and certainly this was a dream team between him and Bryan, cause at the end of the day. I returned to wrestling not just for myself, but for everyone around me. I don't how many years I have left in this business but I am going to make it count. So if that means giving the WWE Universe, I'm down for it. And regarding Keith Lee's statement, we are all for it. Bryan tells the audience that they are still deciding on who it will be. Edge says he thinks Viking Raiders would be great picks, maybe some of the new teams like Ali & Alexander or Ziggler & Roode. Or maybe even a dream team like us. Bryan comes in and says that tonight they are focused on the younger talent from NXT. It's us against Reed & Ruas. A great team down from the performance center. Can't wait to see what they can do in the ring. Edge says that next week they will defend their tag titles.

And you want a harsh reality, Edge. Seth Rollins was right. You are delusional Edge. The future is what's best. I helped you a month ago because I felt guilty about what happened with Gable and I just ran with it. I lost myself. But the former Monday Night Messiah was right. I need to refocus on the future. And that's why, as Raw Tag Team Champion, next week their RAW Tag Team Titles will be defended to the highest bidder. I'm not here to make dreams come true Edge, that's your fantasy. I'm here to win.
