WWE SummerSlam 2009:

-They are having a 15-Diva battle royal right now in the ring. Apparently this match is being filmed for an exclusive DVD bonus match.

DX Invades SummerSlam Intro:

A usual PPV video package opener begins for SummerSlam, when out of nowhere some hand puppet shadows start showing up. We hear HHH and HBK’s voice saying stuff like "it’s the PPV intro you can’t do that" and they continue to make hand puppets. The video finally freezes, peals, and Triple H and Shawn Michaels walk in front of the camera with a blank white screen behind them. HBK tells HHH he used to be a TV repair man, and tells him he can fix the PPV. They walk towards the camera and a DX hype-video plays. It cuts out again and HBK and HHH are in front of the camera again. HHH asks HBK why he couldn’t fix it. He says he forgot. HHH says the important thing is we got the message. HBK asks what the message is. HHH says you know, the message that "we’re baaaack!" HHH looks into the camera and says start the show. The music and regular SummerSlam video returns and we go live in the arena with pyro. Jim Ross welcomes us to the 22nd SummerSlam extravaganza.

Back in the ring, Ziggler is starting to regain control of the action, manhandling the smaller Mysterio. Mysterio making a comeback, tries for a running moonsault off the middle rope but Ziggler meets him in mid-air with a dropkick. Several nearfalls by Ziggler, but Mysterio keeps kicking out at two. Crowd is getting into the match. Mysterio with a drop toe-hold, has Ziggler set up for the 6-1-9. Ziggler slips out to the floor. He catches Mysterio coming back in and sets up his finisher. He pins Mysterio but he kicks out at 2 1/2. Mysterio hits the 6-1-9 on Ziggler. He goes up top but misses on the way down. Ziggler rolls him up quickly for the pin but Mysterio somehow kicks out at two. Crowd is way into this match now, and they should be – it’s a good one. Ziggler has Mysterio across his shoulders on the top rope. Mysterio spins and hits a hurricanrana off the top and rolls Ziggler up for the pinfall. Mysterio gets the three count and retains his Intercontinental championship.
