It's no secret that WWE announcers are fed lines. Whether through the headset or scripted, any program of WWE's nature will have video and segment transitions that require preparation to set them up.
FightfulSelect.com was able to procure several WWE production scripts (which can be seen by subscribers), and found out several lines and segues that were scripted verbatim. Some are setups to VTR (video) clips, some for intros, some to announce contest winners and the like.

McIntyre suffered their first setback after Ziggler was shockingly thrown over the top rope by
Tyler Breeze, thus eliminating Ziggler & McIntyre from the Tag Team Battle Royal. Yet,
despite their loss, McIntyre would not leave the ring without going on a warpath and making it
clear to one and all that Drew McIntyre would never miss an opportunity for a fight!
