Default Re: Being the booker

Sunday Night Heat:


Josh Matthews and Todd Grisham present the show, less than an hour away from the joint brand production Survivor Series. They announce the pre show main event will be Chavo Guerrero vs. Tajiri.


Todd and Josh quickly run down the card, before talking in depth about the 8 Man Elimination Tag Match from Smackdown, with three championships on the line. The quickly explain how the match will work, before talking about how important the match is.

We see the arrival of The Cabinet, as we cut to a commercial.

We return with an interview with The Worlds Greatest Tag Team, who partner Sting and Cena tonight in the 8 Man Elimination Tag from Raw. They talk about how long they have waited to get their hands on Cade and Jindrak, and tonight, they’ll enjoy every second.

Grisham and Matthews quickly discuss that match, and the stipulations along with it, should Cenas team win, or DX win.

A video package then plays, highlighting the lead up to the WWE Championship Match tonight, featuring Angle, Triple H, Eddie Guerrero and Brock Lesnar, in an elimination match.

We see The Game, Triple H, backstage, preparing for the match later, beginning to do some stretches, as he meets up with Ric Flair. The two shake hands, with Flair quickly hurrying off.

After a commercial, our hosts discuss the bitter rivalry between Foley and Flair, which culminates tonight with the War Games match to settle the feud. They talk about the stipulations added on that match too, before cutting backstage for an interview with Carlito.

Carlito runs down Manchester, New Hampshire, before talking about the match tonight in his interview, ending it, saying that when Foley is gone, courtesy of Carlito … that will be cool. CCC then spits his apple into the camera.

The hosts discuss the interview, before going to commercial.

As soon as the show returns, we move to the Womens locker room, and she the majority of the women all ready for the battle royal later, with most looking deep in focus.

After the clip, we see the arrival of The Rock to a thunderous ovation.

Back in the arena, Grisham and Matthews quickly discuss The Rocks match later, as well as the Womens Title Battle Royal, and briefly mention the Hardcore Title match, before the Heat Main Event.

Tajiri defeats Chavo Guerrero with a Buzzsaw Kick @ 06:12 after freeing out of the Gory Bomb, and hitting the Buzzsaw kick.


As the pre-show ends, Grisham and Matthews run down the card one last time, before we go to a video package, hyping the War Games Match…


…AND NOW…


WWE Survivor Series:

Date:
6th November 2005

Location:
Manchester, New Hampshire

Event Music:
Shinedown; Fly from the Inside


Opening Video:


Narrator:
It takes a special being to survive …


The video opens with classic clips from Survivor Series history …

The Undertakers debut in 1990 … Andre out lasting Hulk Hogan in 1987 … Team WWF defeating The Alliance in 2001 … The Rock winning his first WWF/E Title in 1998 … Bret Hart being screwed in 1997 … Team Bischoff overcoming Team Austin in 2003 … and Bret Hart beating Mr. McMahon last year …


Narrator:
Who has what it takes to survive??


Chris Jericho:
Talk about survival … I survived two back to back matches in one night, to make history, and become the first ever, Undisputed Champion. I’ve survived some of the most brutal matches in history, and now … I will continue to be a survivor.


Ric Flair:
Sixteen times, over the course of a wrestling lifetime … THAT … is what you call survival … that is how you be the man … WOOO

Triple H:
I’ve survived it all … Hell in a Cells, Elimination Chambers, Street fights, blood loss, and even a devastating quad tear … tonight, the question isn’t whether I can survive … it’s whether my opposition can survive me.


John Cena:
In my short career, I’ve survived a heck of a lot. I’ve had to work twice as hard to be noticed, and I survived … I’ve battled through all the obstacles, and overcame all the roadblocks stood in my way … and tonight, is part one of me overcoming the obstacle of DX.


John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield:
For years, I hung on, and clung on to my dream of becoming a break out super star, that I know I can be. I’ve survived years of under achieving, and now, that I have become a success in the ring … I’m not going to roll over and give up …


Randy Orton:
I’ve survived being stabbed in the back, survived matches out of my own environment, killing the legend of Mick Foley in a Hardcore Match … killing the Legend of The Undertaker inside Hell in a Cell … I’m a survivor.


Steve Austin:
Talk about survival?? Broken neck, bad knees, being fired, having your own boss hounding ya, but, still coming back, and being the worlds toughest son of a bitch makes me not only a survivor, but a certified bad ass.


Christian:
Tables, Ladders, Chairs. To survive those, and still be in tact, is the definition of survival. The drive to reach that ultimate goal, the drive to be the best, and to do that, you have to make headlines. Tonight, I’ll do that by surviving War Games 2005.


Goldberg:
Can I survive?? I HAVE survived. I will continue to do so … but anyone who stands in my way long enough, sure as hell wont.


Shawn Michaels:
Crippled by a back injury and to come back four years later, to once again be The Showstopper, The Headliner, The Main Event, just like ten years before, not only makes me a true survivor … but a god damn freak of nature!!!


Brock Lesnar:
Survival?? I don’t need to survive. I never had to, will never need to either. I decide who survives. And tonight, my opponents wont survive me.


Rey Mysterio:
As an underdog, survival isn’t a word, it’s a way of life. I live my life surviving all the cheap shots, all the beat downs, and I still sit here today, as one of the most respected performers in the world of this sport, and I don’t want that to change any time soon.


The Rock:
I’ve survived The McMahon Family, Mankind, Stone Cold, Undertaker, Triple H, Kurt Angle, Chris Benoit, Chris Jericho, roadblock after roadblock, screw job after screw job, set back after set back, injury after injury, and still stand before the world today … The Peoples Champ.


Sting:
A career of being under estimated, written off, biting off more than I can chew, and still being a multiple time World Champion. To be a veteran of this industry, and still a top tier player … that’s surviving.


Kurt Angle:
Gold Medal at the 1996 Olympics with a broken neck … Wrestling the greatest Wrestle Mania main event ever with a broken neck … and to come back, and still be the ultimate performer, and a multi time WWE Champion isn’t just surviving, it’s unheard of.


Mick Foley:
Survival is only a eight letter word, compared to a dozen concussions, hundreds of stitches, losing an ear, being thrown off a cell, being slammed onto tacks, being blown up on a C4 explosive, broken bones, loss of consciousness, and years of a life being taken away with each blow, but still turning around, and saying ‘I’m still here!! Come and get me!!!’ is something that the word ‘survival’ cant bring justice to.


Narrator:
Tonight … which of these mere mortals will survive???


And now … X-Box presents a Raw and Smackdown production … The Nineteenth Annual Survivor Series!!!!

Pyro


The camera pans around the arena, with fans signs such as ‘Bye Bye Ric Flair’, ‘I want Hart vs. Angle’, ‘H-B-K … S-U-X’ and ‘Just Bloody Lose JBL!!’


Michael Cole:
For the nineteenth year, Survivor Series, an annual tradition, is on the air. New Hampshire has been waiting in anticipation for weeks, with the Verizon Wireless Arena sold out for weeks. I’m Michael Cole, joined by Tazz, set to call all the Smackdown action!!!


Tazz:
Smackdown sure as hell, has kept its end of the bargain here tonight. Four titles to be decided, including that humungous 8 man classic elimination match, to decide the United States, Tag Team, and Cruiserweight Titles.


Michael Cole:
It’s all about survival tonight Tazz. Fatal Four Way elimination match for the WWE Championship, and another 10 Man Classic Elimination Match, with Team Goldberg facing Team Bring It.


Tazz:
I cannot wait to get it started here tonight Cole.


Michael Cole:
And before we go to J.R and Coach, lets send it over to Hugo and Carlos.


The Spaniards talk for a moment, before heading over to Jim Ross and The Coach.


Jim Ross:
Thank you for inviting us into your homes, and Coach, tonight will be a life changing event for many men on the Raw roster. Can John Cena earn himself a title shot next month at Armageddon?? Can Mick Foley retain his status as Raw General Manager?? Or will Ric Flair usher in a new era on Monday Nights?? And just who will survive the immovable object, known as War Games.


The Coach:
Get ready, tonight marks the end of the Foley administration, and dawns the beginning of the Flair era!!!


Jim Ross:
Ric Flair leads Batista, Carlito, Christian and Rob Van Dam into war tonight, against Mick Foleys team, consisting of Foley, Rey Mysterio, Randy Orton, little Eugene and The Undertaker.


The Coach:
This situation has led to this point. Raw just isn’t big enough for Foley and Flair. It was a matter of time, and one of them is about to get the heave ho.


Jim Ross:
It’s all on the line from the Raw brand tonight. Expect the fa-


**MY TIME IS NOW** John Cena enters the arena to a MASSIVE response. The Dr. of Thuganomics plays to the crowd for a few moments, posing with his own custom belt, before pulling a microphone out of his back pocket.


John Cena:
Yo, yo, yo, yo, YO!!! Cut the music. … I’m getting flashbacks of 2003 … Survivor Series is ass backwards … it‘s cursed …

… For cryin out loud, the main event is up first …
… John Cena shouldn’t be opening up the show …
… After this match, there’s no where else to go …
… Sure the WWE Championship Match might be exciting to view …
… But nothing compares to see HBK take an FU …
… Speaking of DX, Luther Reigns always looks constipated, like he’s in a fit of rage …
… I suggest we lower War Games now, and stick the monkey in a cage …
… Cade and Jindrak are way to close to call each other brother …
… I watched them earlier rubbing baby oil on each other …
… And me, Charlie, Shelton and Sting are like the fantastic four …
… As much as we like to kick ass, kicking DX ass is more like a chore …
… Tonight they get these fists for free …
… We’ll be beating these boys blind, cause they cannnnt see me!!! …


**Seek and Destroy** The legendary, former world champions, music hits, and we see Sting fly down from the rafters to great ovation from the fans.


Howard Finkel:
The following contest, is a classic eight man, Survivor Series elimination match. In the ring, weighing 248 pounds, Johhhhn Cenaaa!!! And, making his way to the ring, from Venice Beach, California, STINGGGG!!!!


Jim Ross:
This marks Stings second appearance at the Survivor Series Coach, and ironically, it’s his second time, teaming with John Cena at this very event.


The Coach:
Well last year, I believe these two were on the winning team, but let me tell you this J.R, lightning don’t strike twice.


**Worlds Greatest** Haas and Benjamin enter the arena to a pleasant ovation from the fans. The two men sprint toward the ring, sliding in, ready for the match.


Howard Finkel:
And their partners, weighing a combined weight of 452 pounds, Charlie Haas, and Shelton Benjamin!!!


Jim Ross:
Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas are former four time tag team champions, and in recent weeks, these two have been on a roll,


The Coach:
This situation has led to this point. Raw just isn’t big enough for Foley and Flair. It was a matter of time, and one of them is about to get the heave ho.


**BREAK IT DOWN** D-Generation X enter the arena, with three of the four men carrying championship gold. HBK lets off his pyro, whilst Cade and Jindrak bow at Michaels, worshipping the ground he walks on. Reigns continues walking to the ring, looking focused and ready to do his job.

Howard Finkel:
Annnnd, their opponents, making their way to the ring, weighing a combined weight, of 1005 pounds, the team of The Insurance Policy, Luther Reigns, the World Tag Team Champions, Garrison Cade, and Mark Jindrak, and, the World Heavyweight Champion, Shawn Michaels. They are D-Generation X!!!!


Jim Ross:
They are the most dominant group in sports entertainment today, but, is tonight, the beginning of the end for the 2005 incarnation of DX?? Or will they continue to rule Raw??

The Coach:
Definitely, without question, option number two.


8 Man Survivor Series Elimination Match:

If Team Thuganomic’s win, John Cena receives a World Championship Match at Armageddon
--- If Team DX win, Cena never gets another shot at Shawn Michaels, for the length of his Title reign.

Team DX -----vs. ----- Team Thuganomics

Shawn Michaels -- John Cena

Luther Reigns -- Sting

Garrison Cade -- Shelton Benjamin

Mark Jindrak -- Charlie Haas

The bell rings, with everyone bar Cena and Reigns going to the outside, as these two men officially kick the match off. They walk around the ring, with Cena pointing to Michaels, wanting HBK in the ring now. Michaels shakes his head, brushing him off, as Cena now diverts his attention to Luther.

They lock up, with Reigns backing Cena into the corner. The referee gets in between them, forcing a break, but Luther goes for a cheap shot, only for Cena to dart out of the way, before pushing Reigns into the corner, and opens up with a barrage of punches, lefts and rights, shaking Reigns. Cena grabs him by the arm, and whips him across the ring, following in with a clothesline in the corner. The DX insurance policy staggers out of the corner, and into a hip toss from Cena, as the hungry former champion makes a tag to Charlie Haas.
Haas gets into the ring, and backs Reigns into the ropes, striking with a deep knee, before whipping Luther off the ropes, knocking him down with a flying elbow smash. He goes for the first cover of the match, 1...2...Kick Out from Luther. Reigns tries to get to his team matches corner, but Haas has other ideas, and drags Luther back to the centre of the ring, dropping an elbow to the knee joint. Charlie gets back up, and stomps the knee, before dragging Luther back to his teams corner, and he tags in Sting.
The crowd pops for the legend, and he continues where Haas left off, pin pointing the knee. He drops an elbow, before cranking at the joint, forcing a slight groan from Luther, who right now is having his main weapon - his size advantage - being taken from him. Sting jumps up, bounces off the ropes, and drops a knee to the knee of Luther. He jumps up again, bouncing off the ropes, this time, dropping an elbow, and once more, this time, dropping a leg to the knee of the grounded Luther Reigns. Sting drags Reigns back to his teams corner, and holds his hand out for a tag, with Shelton Benjamin the first to accept.
Benjamin leaps into the ring, dropping a leg across the face of Luther Reigns, and hooks the leg, 1...2...Kick Out. Shelton gets back up, and waits as Luther struggles to his feet, finding it hard to put any weight on his weakened legs, with Benjamin bouncing off the ropes, and chop blocking the big man down. He pumps up the fans, before bouncing off the ropes, but this time, HBK, on the apron, gets his knee up, hitting Benjamin on the back as he bounces off, which sends Shelton down to a knee.
DX cheer on their insurance policy, getting behind him to make a tag, whilst the team mates of Shelton Benjamin stand on the apron, furious that the referee missed the illegal knee to the back. Reigns makes a tag to Michaels, and Benjamin reaches to make a tag, with Cena more than willing to tag himself in, to get some of HBK.
Cena jumps right in, and bounds for Michaels, but HBK chickens out, and jumps from the ring, running around, with Cena in pursuit. The Champion slides back in, and quickly makes a tag back out, bringing Mark Jindrak in. Jindrak gets in, but gets knocked down by John Cena, who reaches for Michaels, bringing his arch enemy into the ring, the hard way.
Michaels backs into the corner, begging off, and Cena looks to get himself some of the champion, but the referee steps in his way, telling Cena to concentrate on the legal man. Cena turns around, looking for Jindrak, with Michaels taking advantage of the situation, knocking Cena down from behind with a clothesline to the back of the head.
John Cena falls, as Jindrak zeros in, and starts to stomp on the thorn in DX side in recent months, before picking him up, and hit’s a simple, vertical suplex, rolling into a cover, 1...2...Kick Out. Jindrak gets up, knowing he needs to stay on Cena, and pulls Cena with him, backing the opponent into the corner, before tagging in HBK, who seems happy enough to get in with Cena, now he has his opponent weakened.
Michaels chops Cena, before backing up, distracting the referee, whilst DX choke the leader of Team Thuganomics, before Michaels comes back, chopping Cena again. Michaels grabs Cena by the face, and talks trash, before executing a third chop. HBK tags in Garrison Cade, before whipping Cena off the ropes, and the two men hit a double back body drop, before hitting a double elbow drop. HBK is now escorted from the ring, whilst Cade stomps the fallen Cena. He drops down, and chokes Cena, breaking at the count of four, holds his hands up, and chokes again, breaking at four once again. Cade gets up, and drops his knee into the chest of Cena, and hooks his leg, 1...2...Shoulder up. Cade looks up at the referee, and slaps his hands three times, wanting a better count, all the while, with his knee across the throat of Cena, choking the opponent.
Eventually, the official spots it, and makes a count, with Cade releasing at three, as he gets up to his feet. He looks around, and stomps the face of Cena, which gets a round of heat from the on looking fans. Cade drags Cena to the corner again, and plants a reverse elbow to the face, before tagging in Mark Jindrak once again.
Jindrak gets in, with Cade holding Cena in position, with the opponents arm in the air, allowing Jindrak the come off the second rope with an axe handle to the ribcage. Cena drops to his knees, clearly winded from the axe handle, with Jindrak stomping the back of the head, three times, before dropping a double axe handle to the neck, putting Cena down flat. He rolls Cena over, hooking the leg, 1...2...Kick Out.
Cena rolls over, and tries to make it to his corner, but Jindrak grabs his leg, and tries to pull Cena back across to his side of the ring, only for Cena to kick him away. Cena tries to get up, which he does, and he looks to lunge forward at his corner, but Jindrak tackles him down. MJ picks Cena back up, and whips him to a corner. Jindrak runs at him, but Cena gets a foot up, and charges out of the corner, knocking Jindrak down with a tremendous clothesline. John Cena gets back up, and DX can only watch on, as he makes a tag to Sting.
The legend gets into the ring, and knocks down Jindrak with a clothesline, before knocking down Cade with a dropkick. HBK runs into the ring, but Sting side steps him, with Michaels going over the top. He holds onto the ropes, and skins the cat, whilst Sting knocks Reigns off the apron. Michaels Skins the Cat, and runs at Sting, but The Stinger catches him, and hit’s a rib breaker, followed by a front slam.
Now though, Jindrak takes the opportunity from the distraction to hit a bulldog on Sting, taking him down. He makes a cover, 1...2...Kick Out. Jindrak doesn’t settle for the kick out, and tries again, 1...2...Kick Out. Jindrak looks frustrated, and punches the mat, before getting on his feet, bringing Sting up with him. He whips Sting off the ropes, but the legend ducks a clothesline, and as he comes back, Sting grabs Jindraks arm, executing an arm drag.
The speed of the move sends Jindrak sliding to the outside, and gets a nice pop from the fans, as Sting climbs to the middle rope, getting a big response from the fans. On the outside, Michaels and Cade help Jindrak up on the outside, and give him a few words of encouragement, as well as a few tips too, with Jindrak taking it in.
Jindrak slowly slides back in, and locks up with Sting. Sting backs Jindrak into the corner, and tags in Shelton Benjamin. The former amateur wrestler enters, with a number of well placed knee’s to the sternum, before whipping Jindrak off the ropes, with Cade making a blind tag, which Shelton doesn’t notice, as he ducks his head, waiting for MJ to come back, which he eventually does, and gets back dropped. Benjamin looks to follow up, but Cade attacks from behind, which angers Benjamins team mates, until they are told that Cade is the legal man now after the blind tag.
Garrison whips Benjamin off the ropes, and knocks him down with a reverse elbow. He goes for a quick cover, 1...2...Kick Out!!! Cade picks Shelton up, throwing a few right hands, before bouncing off the ropes, only to be met with a dropkick from Benjamin!!! Shelton whips Cade off the ropes, and meets him with a power slam, getting a cover too, 1...2...Kick Out!!! Benjamin gets up, and takes The Showstopper by surprise, knocking him off the apron with an uppercut.
Shelton turns back around, and sees Cade coming at him, but meets HBCade with a kick to the gut, before dropping Garrison with a bulldog. He covers, 1...2...Kick Out!!! Shelton drops an elbow on the grounded Cade, and covers again, 1...2...Kick Out!!!
Benjamin then sees Jindrak, trying to get in, whilst we see HBK pulling himself back up on the apron, and the former All American knocks both off, this time with a dropkick to Jindrak, who falls onto HBK. Shelton gets back on Cade, and goes for a DDT, but Cade blocks it, grabbing the top rope, only for John Cena to kick his arm off the rope, allowing Shelton to execute the DDT, but Luther Reigns takes advantage, with the referee distracted, admonishing Cena for his kick, and Reigns enters the ring, booting Benjamin down, seconds before he gets to hit a second DDT!! Cade hooks the leg of Shelton Benjamin, 1...2...KICK OUT!!!
Immediately, Garrison pulls Benjamin to the corner, and tags in the Insurance Policy, with DX now in control of this match. Luther pounds the body of Shelton, before whipping him off the ropes, taking him back down with a high impact sidewalk slam. Luther makes a tag to Mark Jindrak, with MJ entering with an elbow off the second rope. Jindrak covers, 1...2...Kick Out. MJ quickly keeps the pressure on, tagging in Cade. Jindrak holds Shelton up, taking advantage of the five count, with Cade kicking at the stomach and ribs of Shelton.
Eventually, Jindrak exits, whilst Cade takes over on Shelton. He throws a big uppercut, with Benjamin staggering over the ropes. Cade follows, with a knee to the back, as the opponent hangs over the ropes. Cade pulls Shelton back, and executes a Fisherman suplex, keeping the leg hooked, 1...2...Shoulder up!!!
Garrison pulls Benjamin to the corner again, and tags Michaels in, keeping the tags rolling, keeping all four men fresh. HBK and Cade hit a double hip toss, with Shawn hooking the leg for a cover,

……1……

…………2…………

……CENA BREAKS THE COUNT!!!…
The referee gets Cena back out of the ring, whilst DX choke Benjamin, with the referee’s back turned. They make a tag again, with Reigns the legal man once more. He rams Storm in the corner, trying to bust the ribs, before dragging him out, and hitting a neck breaker. Luther doesn’t cover, but instead, bounces off the ropes, and drops the elbow upon his return. This time, he covers, 1...2...Kick Out!!!
Luther looks a little saddened by the kick out, hoping for the three that time. He tags Jindrak back in again. MJ begins to get cocky, and starts slapping Shelton around the head, before jumping on him for a horse ride, making fun of Sheltons weakened state. The joke backfire though, as Benjamin throws him off his back, then as Jindrak gets back up, and throws a right, Benjamin blocks it, spins Jindrak around and scores with a spear!!!
Benjamin now desperately crawls to the corner, but Jindrak tries to grab his leg, to no avail, as Shelton powers free, and rolls to his corner, tagging in Charlie Haas to a huge response, as Jindrak also makes a tag to Michaels!!!
Haas is fired up, with HBK taking him a little too casually, and pays, as Charlie runs through Michaels with a clothesline, and a second, before knocking him down with a dropkick. Haas bounces off the ropes, and leaps over Michaels, grabbing the legs, and goes for a sunset flip, with Michaels swinging his arms wildly, trying to stay up, reaching, as Luther Reigns grabs his arms, trying to keep him up, until we see Cena run around the ring, and grabs Reigns by the legs, dragging him off the apron … breaks his grip with Michaels … HBK falls … cover … 1...2...BROKEN BY CADE!!!
This run in causes chaos, as Benjamin and Sting get in, and chase Cade out of the ring, with Benjamin knocking Jindrak to the floor, before getting onto the ropes, and planchas to the outside!!! Haas and Michaels are left all alone in the ring, with Michaels looking a little dazed, but Haas is ready. Charlie grabs Michaels from behind, and goes for a German Suplex, but Michaels elbows free. Haas bounces off the ropes, but quickly, Cade trips him, causing a distraction. Haas looks to the outside, and sees Cade, but instead of going out to get him, he sees Sting take control. Haas turns back around, but walks straight into Shawn Michaels, and Sweet Chin Music!!! Michaels hooks the leg…

Eliminated: Charlie Haas by Shawn Michaels @ 11:14


Haas is eliminated, giving DX the advantage early on, 4 on 3, as the referee calls for someone to help Haas to the back. Sting is the first man to get in the ring, thus becoming the next legal member of Team Thuganomics. Michaels tries to stay away from the legend, before they lock up, centre of the ring, with Sting backing Michaels into the corner. Sting chops Michaels, with HBK staggering out, grabbing his chest. Sting looks to whips Michaels across the ring, but Michaels rakes the eye, freeing himself, before looking to see his three partners back on the apron, ready for a tag, which he makes, to Luther Reigns.

The Insurance Policy gets inside, and runs to Sting, but Sting catches him with a boot, followed by a flapjack.
Sting takes Luther to the ropes and lays a number of vicious chops and punches, rattling Reigns. He moves Reigns into the corner and hits another bunch of chops and punches to him. Sting whips Luther and then hit’s a back body drop, sending him to the mat. He goes for the cover, 1...2...Luther kicks out. Sting then goes for another whip, but Reigns reverses and hit’s a biel on the legend. He then tags in HBCade.
Cade hits an arm drag on Sting, and then a dropkick to the back. He stomps on his opponent, and then lifts him up and goes for a suplex, but this is blocked and Sting hit’s a suplex of his own. He goes for another cover, 1...2...Kick out. Garrison jumps up, but is met by an arm drag from Sting. The Stinger follows up, and hit’s a spine buster. He makes the cover, 1...2...Cade kicks out again. Sting then whips Garrison into the corner and runs at him, but Cade gets a foot up on Sting. He then goes for a whip, but this is reversed by Sting into a Deathdrop, but Cade fights out. They go punch for punch, but Sting ducks and hit’s a reverse elbow. He then makes sure Cade is down, before tagging Shelton back into the match.
Benjamin goes up top and hit’s a flying clothesline on Cade right away. He then bounces off the ropes and hit’s a leg drop, 1...2...Cade kicks out!! Benjamin picks up HBCade and goes for an Irish Whip, but Cade reverses, and knocks down Shelton with a knee to the head and floats over into a cover, 1...2...Benjamin kicks out!! Cade drags Benjamin up, but Shelton blocks a punch, before throwing one of his own. Cade fires back, and both men begin to throw punches at each other, before both bounce off the ropes and duck each other, with the next time, Cade holds the rope, and Benjamin falls, dropkicking air. Cade now looks to take advantage, and tries to drag Benjamin up, but Shelton counters, getting a cradle, 1...2...KICK OUT!! Cade jumps back up, looking in shock, and tags out to Jindrak, whilst Benjamin take too long to make a tag, and Jindrak manages to get to him before he can.
MJ lays in a number of punches at Shelton, before hitting a monkey flip, followed by a running elbow. He gets the cover, 1...2...Benjamin kicks out. Cade then bounces off the ropes, but Shelton ducks and hit’s a Belly to Belly. Both men crawl to their corners to tag, but Benjamin gets their first and tags John Cena to an amazing pop.
Cena pulls Jindrak back to the centre and drops an elbow. He then gets up and taunts the DX team with the “You cant see me” taunt. This riles up the DX superstars, which distracts the referee, meaning Cena can choke RVD without being seen. Strangely, this even gets a great cheer from the crowd, with the fans solidly behind Cena. He lets go, and then hits another elbow. He jumps up and bounces off the ropes for the 5 Knuckle Shuffle, connecting. He covers Jindrak, 1...2...HBK stops the count. He is told off by the referee, and Cena continues the punishment, ignoring Michaels. He hit’s a reverse elbow to MJ, and back away into the corner, tagging Sting back in.
Sting gets in, and goes to work on the body, before whipping Jindrak across the ring, following in … WITH THE STINGER SPLASH!!! Jindrak staggers out, and around the ring, taking a shot from Cena, and a shot from Benjamin, before walking into Sting, who grabs him behind, and HIT’S THE SCORPION DEATH DROP!!! Sting gets the cover …

TOO LATE

Eliminated: Mark Jindrak by Sting @ 13:03


DX are too late to save Jindrak, but immediately are on top of Sting, which results in Cena and Benjamin running into the ring, starting a 3 on 3 brawl between the teams. Cena chases Michaels out of the ring, whilst Benjamin pairs off with Cade, and they fight to the outside. Inside, Sting pounds down Luther Reigns, before dragging him up. Sting whips him off the ropes, leap frogs him as he comes back, and rolls him up … but Reigns rolls through, and grabs the ropes …

Eliminated: Sting by Luther Reigns @ 13:34


DX take the low road again!!! Reigns cheats to eliminate Sting, bringing the match down to 3 on 2. Sting gets out of the ring, pissed off with being cheated out of the match, whilst Reigns gloats in the ring. However, he doesn’t see John Cena getting inside, and he waits, as Luther turns around … and Cena gets him up in position … FU!!!!! Cena hooks the leg …

Eliminated: Luther Reigns by John Cena @ 13:46


It’s all level again, as DX is down to Shawn Michaels and Cade, whilst Team Thuganomics consists of Cena and Benjamin. Michaels thinks about getting in with Cena, but drops back down from the apron, and instructs Cade to get in instead. Cade, being the sucker he is, does so, and is straight into the firing line of John Cena, being knocked down with a running shoulder tackle.

Cena whips Cade into the corner, before making a tag to his partner, Shelton Benjamin. Benjamin is quick to enter, wanting a piece of Garrison, and throws a few stinging rights to the jaw of Cade, before whipping him into the ropes, going for a dropkick, but Cade slaps his legs away, before scoring with an elbow to the back. He rolls Shelton over, making a cover, 1...2...Kick Out.
Garrison then picks up the former All American, and hoists him up in the air, posing, and mouthing at Cena, before he delivers a delayed vertical suplex. He gets a cover on Benjamin, 1…2…Benjamin kicks out!!! Cade quickly drops an elbow again, on the back of Shelton, and covers again, 1...2...Kick Out.
Cade, looking a little frustrated, picks up his opponent again, and goes for the suplex again, but Benjamin this time rolls through, and takes down Cade with a reverse neck breaker. He covers, 1...2...Kick Out from Garrison. Benjamin gets up, and runs at Cade, but Cade meets him with a sidewalk slam!!! He covers, 1.….2.….Kick Out again from Benjamin!! Cade stands over Shelton, who shows the pain in his face from the Sidewalk Slam, before dragging him up, and whips Shelton off the ropes, into an abdominal stretch.
Benjamin doesn’t allow himself to get worn down, and manages to cause his opponent enough trouble by wriggling, he gets close enough to his corner, and tags in JOHN CENA!! Cena quickly enters, and clubs the back of Cade, forcing him to let Benjamin go. Garrison stumbles to the corner, and Cena follows in, chopping him with some vicious knife edge chops. He whips Cade off the ropes, but misses with a clothesline. Garrison comes off the other side, but doesn’t expect to be taken down with a spinebuster!!!
Cena tees off right hands, after taking Garrison down from the move. Cade tries to block, but Cena manages to catch him, and again, scoring with a dozen shots, eventually getting off, and giving HBK the DX crotch chop!!! HBK is livid, and is forced back by the referee, who stops him from getting into the ring. John Cena laughs, and backs Garrison Cade into his corner, tagging Shelton Benjamin back into the ring.
Benjamin and Cena whip Cade into the ropes, and team up, with a double reverse elbow, to knock him back down. They then grab each others arm, and drop a double elbow into the heart of Cade. Cena gets escorted out of the ring by the official, as Shelton gets a cover, with the referee eventually turning back around, 1...2...Kick Out!!!
Benjamin gets up, and stomps the face of Garrison Cade. Benjamin picks up Cade, whipping him into the ropes, and takes Cade by surprise, executing a Samoan Drop!!! Benjamin stalks Cade, signalling for the T-Bone Slam, but HBK gets into the ring, and blindsides Shelton, knocking him down.
John Cena is furious, and tries to enter, but the referee holds him back, before the official admonishes Michaels for interfering. Cade hit’s a side suplex on his opponent, and gets a cover on Benjamin, but Cena immediately enters, and pulls Garrison Cade off Benjamin, which is a stupid move, as he takes the officials attention.
The referee gets Cena back out of the ring, but while his back is turned, HBK decides to take advantage, and nails Benjamin with a dropkick!!! He smiles, and quickly gets back out of the ring, as Cade makes the cover once again, 1...2...KICK OUT!!! Michaels shouts at the referee to count properly next time, and this is a stupid move, as Cena now, just like Michaels a moment ago took advantage, he gets in the ring, and nails Cade with a side suplex!!!
This time, Cena hurries out of the ring, and allows his partner to get a cover, eventually, hooking the leg, 1...2...KICK OUT!!! Shawn points across the ring at John Cena, with Cena answering with a cocky wave. Benjamin is back to his feet, and bounces off the ropes, but Shawn Michaels scores with a knee as he comes back off the ropes, and walks into the path of Cade, who hit’s a swinging neckbreaker. He hooks the leg, 1...2...KICK OUT!!!
Around the opposite side of the ring, John Cena exacts some revenge on HBK, pulling him off the apron, and whipping him into the steel steps. Cade picks Benjamin up, and whips him off the ropes, going for a clothesline, but Benjamin ducks, runs off the opposite side, and leaps in the air, connecting with a cross body, hooking the leg, 1...2...KICK OUT!!!
Benjamin gets back to his feet, and tags in The Doctor of Thuganomics!!! Cena gets into the ring, and knocks down Cade with a clothesline … and a second, before executing a front slam, following with a cover, 1...2...Kick Out!!! Cade looks to make a tag to his corner, but Michaels isn’t there, still nursing himself back to his feet. Cena laughs as Cade has nowhere to go. Garrison pulls himself up in the corner, but John Cena is right on him, with a succession of right hands, eventually mounting onto the second turnbuckle, looking to execute a number of punches, but Michaels jumps onto the apron, and drops Cena across the ropes, with Cena dropping back, landing back on the mat.
Michaels now makes the call to Cade for a tag, which he gets. Shawn kicks Cena in the corner, and begins to stomp the star, before dragging him up, bad mouthing before nailing a few chops, then whips him into the ropes, taking him down with a back body drop. Michaels tries to quickly drop the elbow, but Cena spins out of the way. Cena gets up, and starts unloading right hands on HBK, before bouncing off the ropes, but runs into Michaels, and an inverted atomic drop, followed by a clothesline!!!!!
Michaels stomps the face of Cena, before dragging him to his feet, and picking the opponent up, into position for a vertical suplex, slowly dropping him to the mat. Cover again, 1...2...Kick Out!!! John Cena looks to his corner, and sees his partner just reaching out, looking for a tag, but just too far away.
HBK backs Cena into the corner, and whips him off the ropes, but misses with a clothesline, allowing Cena to come back, and hit Michaels with a clothesline instead!!!!! Cena pulls himself up on the ropes, and as Cade tries to punch him, he blocks, and grabs Cade by the hair, before running him into a meeting of the minds with Michaels, knocking Cade off the apron!!! Cena now reaches across the ring, and TAGS IN BENJAMIN!!!!
Shelton gets in, all guns blazing, scoring with a standing kick to Michaels, a clothesline to Cade and a clothesline to Michaels. Benjamin now picks HBK back up, and sets him up for the T-Bone, but he spots Cade get back up, and lets go of Michaels, goes for a kick to Cade, but has his foot caught … Benjamin hit’s the Dragon Whip!!!
Shelton turns back around, with Michaels going for Sweet Chin Music … but Benjamin catches the foot … spins Michaels around, kicks him in the mid section, and hooks Michaels up for the T-Bone … AND SCORES!!!!! Benjamin makes the cover …

………………FOOT ON THE ROPE………………
The fans let out a major ‘OH’ with Michaels just surviving. Benjamin gets back to his feet, and sees Garrison Cade arguing with the referee. Benjamin makes his way to the commotion, which gives Michaels a chance to recover for a few moments, and we see him taking the padding from the middle turnbuckle. In the opposite corner, Benjamin is tangling with Cade, but that soon ends, with John Cena dragging Cade off the apron. Shelton turns back around, and makes his way back to HBK, but this time, Michaels grabs Benjamin by the tights, and drags him into the turnbuckle, with Benjamin hitting the exposed buckle. He falls backwards, with Michaels rolling him up …

Eliminated: Shelton Benjamin by Shawn Michaels @ 17:57


John Cena is now left into a handicap situation, with Benjamin eliminated. Cena is on the outside, trying to get back inside the ring, but the referee begins to count him out, and Cade realises, which gives him the idea to try and get Cena counted out. Cade tries to draw John into the crowd, as the count reaches 4. Cena now acknowledges the count, and begins to turn to try and get back into the ring, but Cade grabs him by the jeans, and tries to hold him back, with Cena punching the man away. John looks to slide back in, but Cade lunges, and grabs the leg, pulling Cena back down, onto the protective mat on the outside.

In the ring, Shawn Michaels, wills Cade on to keep Cena on the outside, as the referee reaches 7. Cena fights back to his feet, and tries to get in, but Cade desperately grabs for the leg once more, but this time, Cena kicks him away, and manages to re-enter the ring, but is met right away by HBK, getting knocked down with a right hand.
Michaels pulls Cena up, and levels with a chop, then whips Cena off the ropes, ducks down, and Cena rebounds, coming back, taking advantage of the duck down from HBK, scoring with the Throwback!!! Cena scrambles to make a cover, but doesn’t even get a one count, with Cade breaking the cover. He pounds Cena down, before the referee tells him to get to the outside, which he does. Whilst Cade takes his time leaving the ring, Michaels takes the opportunity to choke Cena, until the referee turns back around, when he stops.
The Heart Break Kid gets back up and drags Cena to the corner, making a tag to Cade. The two men stomp Cena in the corner, before Michaels is instructed to the outside, leaving just Cade and Cena. The tag champion whips Cena across the ring, heard into the corner, with Cena bouncing out of the corner, and falling onto the mat. Cade looks around the arena and smiles, points at Cena, and mimics the ‘You Cant See Me’ taunt. He drags Cena up, whips him off the ropes, and delivers a perfect back breaker. He hooks the leg, 1...2...Kick Out.
Garrison gets back up, and makes another tag to his mentor, HBK, who cockily jives into the ring. He gives Cade some instructions, and starts to climb the ropes, whilst Cade picks Cena up, slamming him back down with a front slam, before Michaels takes a look around the arena … and flies from the top rope … hitting the elbow!!!!
Michaels jumps back up, and taunts the fans, with the crotch chop, before walking to the corner, and begins to stomp his foot, signalling for Sweet Chin Music. He waits, and waits, as Cena struggles to his feet, and Cade winds the fans up, standing behind him. Michaels lines it up, and goes for Sweet Chin Music … BUT CENA DUCKS … AND MICHAELS HITS CADE!!!!
Michaels stands over Cade, looking in shock, before turning around to Cena, and goes for Sweet Chin Music again … BUT CENA DUCKS AGAIN … and clotheslines Michaels to the outside!!! Cena drags Cade to the middle of the ring, and hooks the leg…

Eliminated: Garrison Cade by John Cena @ 19:16


It’s down to Cena and Michaels!!!! HBK is on his knees, crawling along ringside, whilst in the ring, the referee rolls Cade to the outside, and John Cena rests on the ropes. Michaels gets onto the apron, with the referee making his way to the Showstopper, telling him to get in. Whilst this goes on, Garrison Cade regains his bearings, and grabs the Tag Team Title belt, before taking a look to see where the referee is, and decides to get back involved, rolling into the ring, and runs at Cena, but Cena knocks him down with a big right hand.

Cena picks Cade back up, and sends him to the outside again, but as soon as he does this, Shawn Michaels jumps into the ring, and dumps Cena out of the ring, looking to try and get a count out win. Cena lands hard on the floor, with HBK urging the official to count him out. Michaels keeps on at the official to count quicker, and looks to be having an effect, as the referee starts counting quicker, being bullied into it.
The official reaches 5, as Cena reaches for the apron, only to have Michaels stamp on his hand. Cena lets go, as Michaels realises he’ll end up breaking the count. HBK decides to take a risk, and takes a deep breath, pulls on the ropes, and looks for a Pescado to the outside … AND CONNECTS!!!!
Both men are down, with the referee restarting his count, as we see Garrison Cade being led to the back by officials. 1… 2… 3… Michaels begins to move …4… Cena begins to stir …5… MICHAELS NIPS UP …6… HBK rolls back into the ring, saving himself …7… Cena crawls back inside, with HBK immediately striking with an elbow to the back. He rolls Cena over, and hooks the near leg, 1...2...KICK OUT!!!
Shawn Michaels looks up, and looks to be desperate for something in order to finish Cena off. He pulls Cena up by the hair, and starts to pound away at the forehead, almost in anguish, before choking at Cena, until the referee pulls the World Champion off Cena. Michaels looks to be getting extremely frustrated, not able to put John Cena away, and pushes the referee. Michaels stomps on Cena, looks around the arena, which results in a major amount of heat, just for looking around.
Michaels stomps some more, before dragging Cena back up, whips him off the ropes, and hits an Inverted Atomic Drop, before going for a DDT, but Cena runs him into the corner, stopping the move. Michaels lets go, and Cena begins to unload with fists of fury, before whipping Michaels across the ring, with HBK getting folded up in the corner like an accordion, before rolling back off from the top, and into the path of Cena, who hit’s a side suplex into a power bomb, with the shoulders of HBK down …

………………KICK OUT………………
Cena looks around, his eyes wide from shock that Michaels kicked out. Cena stays on top, and drags Michaels up, whipping him into the corner again, and runs in to meet him, but as Michaels reaches the corner, he leaps to the top, and comes back off with a moonsault, taking Cena down…

…………1…………
……
………2………

………………KICK OUT FROM CENA………………
Michaels holds up three fingers at the official, who responds with just two. HBK snarls, and pounds the mat with his fist, before shouting something, and rolls to the outside, pushing a cameraman out of the way, before grabbing a steel chair, and the World Heavyweight Championship Belt. He hides the belt behind his back, and slides the chair in the ring, distracting the referee, who immediately goes to get the chair back out.
HBK quickly gets back in, and runs at Cena, with the title belt, but Cena moves out of the way, and Michaels runs into the corner, dropping the belt to the outside. He looks as the belt lays on the floor, and shouts to himself ‘DAMMIT’ before turning back around to Cena, who takes Michaels by surprise, and gets him onto his shoulders right away, not giving HBK any time to counter, and hit’s the FU!!!! Cena makes the cover…

Eliminated: Shawn Michaels by John Cena @ 22:03

Winner: John Cena!!!

Cena runs around the ring, celebrating the massive victory, which now guarantees him a shot at HBK next month at Armageddon for the World Heavyweight Title.


Jim Ross:
What an ovation. John Cena earns himself a one on one match with Michaels, next month, in his home state of Massachusetts. What a way to kick off the 19th annual Survivor Series!!


The Coach:
This is not the result HBK wanted J.R, it’s not right that he has to face Cena again. I mean, how many times can you beat one man??


Jim Ross:
You and I both know Coach, that Shawn Michaels has always ducked the challenge of John Cena. HBK won the title thanks to DX, and he has only kept it from screwing Cena at every turn.


The Coach:
Enough of your pro- Cena propaganda J.R. John Cena has one last chance to beat Michaels next month, and I hope HBK embarrasses Cena in front of his own state.


Jim Ross:
Whatever happens, I’m sure it’ll be an all out classic Coach.

Back to the arena…


**Time to Rock and Roll** Trish Stratus enters the arena to a terrific reception. She stares down the ramp, as the nine challengers look up towards her at the top. She raises her belt high in the air, before walking towards the ring, looking extremely confident.

Howard Finkel:
The following contest, is a ten lady, battle royal, for the WWE Womens Championship. In the ring, the challengers, in alphabetical order, Gail Kim, Jacqueline, Jazz, Lita, Molly Holly, Nidia, Shaniqua, Stacey Kiebler, and Victoria.

And, making her way to the ring, the WWE Womens Champion, from Toronto Canada, Trish Stratus!!!

Jim Ross:
Just three weeks ago, Trish Stratus ended the one year reign of Shaniqua, to once again become the Womens Champion. Tonight, she faces nine challengers, and I hate to say it, but Trish could well be facing insurmountable odds.


The Coach:
This will be a huge task for Trish. If she thought ending the one year reign of Shaniqua was a huge challenge, she might just have to dig deeper tonight.


Women’s Championship Match;
10 Lady Battle Royal:

Trish Stratus vs. Lita vs. Shaniqua vs. Victoria vs. Jazz
w/Theodore Long vs.
vs. Molly Holly vs. Gail Kim vs. Nidia vs. Jacqueline vs. Stacey Kiebler

Trish drops the belt, and slides into the ring, with the action beginning immediately. Jazz meets Trish as she slides in, stomping away at her, whilst Victoria pairs off with Shaniqua, Molly with Lita, Jacqui and Stacey, and Nidia pairs off with Gail Kim. Jazz tries to get Stratus out immediately, but Trish stops the momentum, holding onto the middle rope, preventing Jazz from dumping her over the top.

Molly gets Lita over the top, but Lita manages to stay on the apron, and punches Holly away, before getting back inside. Lita now tries to throw Molly out, but she elbows Lita away, before tripping her down. Shaniqua and Victoria trade punches in the corner, with Victoria more than holding her own. Stacey chokes Jacqui with his long legs in the opposite corner, whilst Nidia and Gail struggle by the ropes, trying to eliminate each other.
Jazz knocks Trish down with a clothesline, before going to the corner, and starts to help Shaniqua with Victoria. Shaniqua doesn’t respond well to any help, and boots Jazz away, before going back with it with Victoria. Lita goes for a dropkick on Molly, but Molly moves out of the way, and Lita inadvertently hits Shaniqua, who nearly stumbles out of the ring. Victoria quickly tries to dump the Amazon out, but to no avail, with Shaniqua elbowing Victoria away. She then grabs Victoria by the hair, and tosses her across the ring, before making a beeline for Lita, and spears her down. Shaniqua grabs Trish by the throat, and looks to Chokeslam her out of the ring, but Nidia attacks Shaniqua from behind, before calling on the other divas to team up, and get Shaniqua out.
Shaniqua boots Nidia to the mat, and then tells the rest of the women to come and get some. Jazz runs at her, but Shaniqua picks her up in the air, looking for a press slam, but Gail Kim chop blocks Shaniqua, sending her down. Jazz mounts Shaniqua and tees off with a number of right hands, before getting off, and allowing Victoria a chance to bounce off the ropes, and hit a leg drop. Now, we see Trish asks a couple of the divas to get Shaniqua up, and Jacqui and Stacey lift her up, with Trish looking to hit the Chick Kick. Shaniqua though, powers the two women away, knocks down Molly with a clothesline, double clothesline on both Jazz and Nidia, hit’s a spine buster on Victoria, and power slams Lita, big boot to Gail Kim, but turns around, and gets levelled by Trish with the Chick Kick.
Trish manages to get the former champion to stumble into the ropes, as she quickly tries to capitalise and dump her out, with Jacqui, Stacey, and Nidia quickly recovering to help. They struggle with the determined Amazon, but are helped as the remaining divas all get back to their feet, and help, trying to get Shaniqua out … the nine divas push hard, and try to flip Shaniqua out … AND SUCCEED!!!!


Eliminated: Shaniqua by other nine divas @ 02:04


The nine remaining women celebrate eliminating the most dominant of the lot early on, but Stacey Kiebler is the first to take advantage of the distraction of the celebrations, and kicks Jacqui on the back of the head, sending her tumbling into the ropes, and Jazz sees Jacqui in trouble, which makes her quick to act, and she clotheslines her out of the ring, over the top, hitting the floor!!!

Eliminated: Jacqueline by Jazz @ 02:17


Stacey looks to be upset with Jazz for stealing her elimination, and pushes her, shouting, and pointing. Stacey slaps Jazz, with Jazz slapping back, staggering Kiebler, and Lita quickly runs at Stacey, grabbing her by the shirt, and tosses her out of the match.

Eliminated: Stacey Kiebler by Lita @ 02:27


Now, Jazz looks annoyed, with Lita stealing her elimination, and the two women go at it, wrestling into the corner. Meanwhile, Victoria tries to get Trish over the top, and Molly Holly tries to employ a sneaky tactic, sitting in the corner, keeping a low centre of gravity. Gail Kim and Nidia exchange blows in the centre of the ring, with everyone paired off, apart from Molly Holly, who is trying to stay incognito in the corner.
We see Trish still hanging on, not letting Victoria get the best of her, as Gail Kim knocks Nidia down, before getting involved with Victoria and Trish in that corner, and on the other side of the ring, Lita gets Jazz over, but Theodore Long runs around the ring, making sure Jazz doesn’t fall to the floor. She manages to keep her balance anyway, and fights back into the ring.
Nidia gets back up, and spots Molly trying to hide in the corner, and points at her, as if to say, ‘You sneaky Bitch’, before running at the corner, hitting a basement dropkick. Nidia picks Molly up, and tries to dump her out, but for some reason, Victoria saves her, and hit’s a gut wrench suplex on Nidia. Despite saving Molly, Molly shows her gratitude to Victoria, by attacking her from behind, with a dropkick, sending her over the top rope, but Victoria holds onto the ropes, claws her foot onto the apron, staying in the match.
Jazz puts Lita into a submission hold, raising her up off the ground, holding her by the triceps, and tries to put Lita over the top, but Lita manages to wrap her feet around the top rope, stopping Jazz from eliminating her. Jazz lets go of the hold, and looks for someone else to attack, but she doesn’t expect Lita to grab her from behind, and Lita sends Jazz over the top, and should be to the ground, but Theodore Long acts fast, and runs against the apron, stopping Jazz from rolling onto the floor. He helps her get back up. Jazz looks down at Long, and nods, getting away from a close shave. But as she turns back around, to get back in the ring, Trish Stratus runs along the ring, and clotheslines Jazz, with her falling off the apron, onto Teddy Long, but he cant hold her, and both fall over, causing the fourth elimination of the match.

Eliminated: Jazz by Trish Stratus @ 04:16


We are left with six; Trish, Gail, Victoria, Nidia, Lita & Molly. One woman will be the women’s champion. Victoria gets in the face of Nidia, and she responds with a right hand, then the two begin to fight it out around then ring. Lita then attacks Trish, while Gail and Molly go face to face. They shove each other, then Molly slaps, with Gail slapping back, then Kim takes her down, and fires off right hands.
Nidia nearly dumps Victoria, going for a firemans carry, but Victoria stops, holding the top rope, stopping herself from going over. Lita powerslams Trish, then sets her up for the Twist of Fate. She grips her, but Stratus fights out, then bounces off the ropes, but walks into a dropkick from Lita!!!
Molly and Gail roll around the mat brawling with one another, while Victoria and Nidia continue to try and get the other over. Lita then tries to get Trish out, but Stratus somehow, fights back, and backs her off, then hit’s a shoulder block. She then goes to pull Molly off Gail, but Holly hits Trish, then takes her with a dragon screw.
Gail Kim then jumps up, and goes for the top rope, but as she jumps to the ropes, Victoria quickly dumps her out!!!

Eliminated: Gail Kim by Victoria @ 05:45


Victoria goes back to work, looking to get at Lita, whilst Nidia cant help but laugh at what happened to Gail, but the joke is on her, as Molly Holly dumps her out of the ring, with Nidia landing hard, on her head.

Eliminated: Nidia by Molly Holly @ 05:53


We are down to the final four already!!! Victoria, Lita, Molly and the champion, Trish. The four all take a look around, and back into corners, watching to see who makes the first move.
Victoria walks into the direction of Lita, and tells her to bring it on. She then walks over to Trish and tells her she is losing the title, but Trish responds with the talk to the hand taunt. Victoria is set to turn around to Molly, but as she does, Holly spears her down, while Trish and Lita tie up. Lita backs her into the corner, then chops her, but Trish reverses and chops her back, before licking her hand, and chops again. Then Lita responds, and throws a right, with Stratus striking back with a left. Lita then drives a knee, runs off the ropes and hit’s a running knee lift, then tries to put the champion out, but Trish holds on, with Lita trying desperately to eliminate her.
Victoria and Molly tussle, back to their feet, and Molly goes for an side suplex to Victoria, but Victoria rolls through, and clotheslines Holly down. She then sizes up Lita for a Spear, and as she turns around, Victoria goes for it, but Lita moves, and Victoria nails Trish, sending out by the middle rope, but it wont be an elimination!!!!
Lita then waits for Victoria to get back up, and as she does, Lita hit’s the hurricanrana!! She then looks to Molly, and runs at her, but Holly hit’s a drop toe hold, and locks on the STF!!! Lita clutches her face, and taps, which doesn’t count for anything. Lita then crawls to the ropes, and pulls herself halfway up, then tries to roll through, with Holly letting go … and going over the top…..BUT HOLDS ONTO THE ROPES!!!!!
Holly is dangling, nearly eliminated, but pulls herself back in, as Lita tries to shake off the effects of the submission, but Molly comes back in, and hit’s a bulldog, then sees Victoria coming, at her, and catches Victoria with a boot, before hitting a suplex. She goes for a clothesline to Lita, but Lita ducks, and tries to take Molly down, but Molly kicks her away, and then hit’s a back body drop….with Lita going over the top rope, to the apron. Lita tries to gain her bearings again, but Victoria hit’s a spear through the ropes, with Lita crashing to the floor!!! Lita is out!!!!

Eliminated: Lita by Victoria @ 07:36


Molly Holly then hits an arm drag on Victoria, as we see Trish getting back inside the ring. Molly then picks Victoria up for a Powerslam and tries to eliminate her, but Vic slides out, and the two women go punch for punch. Trish watches on, and decides to get involved, as Victoria whips Molly into the corner, with Trish running at Molly, and hit’s the Stratosphere!!!
Victoria takes advantage of Molly being down, and hit’s a standing moonsault, keeping Molly down. Victoria gets back up, and blindsides Trish with a clothesline. Victoria drops an elbow on the champion, then grabs Molly by the hair, and picks her up, into position for a front slam, and walks to the ropes, dumping Molly out of the ring.

Eliminated: Molly Holly by Victoria @ 08:12


Then there was two. The final two, are the reigning champion, Trish Stratus, and the in form Victoria. Both slowly move around the ring, then walk closer, and closer, then tie up. Victoria drives a knee, then pulls Trish down by the hair, and drops an elbow on her. She then drops it again, and pulls up Trish by the hair, and drags her over to the ropes, looking for the elimination, but Trish, showing her tenacity, comes back, with elbows to the sternum, then a right hand, another, then a left, a right, a left, a right, right, right, right. She bounces off the ropes, and hit’s a swinging neckbreaker to Victoria, then jumps up, bounces off the ropes, and hit’s a fist drop!! She picks up Victoria, and drags her to the ropes, but Victoria blocks it. She then tries to get Trish over, but Stratus lands on the apron, then punches the challenger away, and re enters the ring. She then goes for the Stratusfaction, but Victoria moves, and comes back with a clothesline, knocking Trish down!!!!
Victoria scoops Trish back up, and gets her up, into position for the Widows Peak, and almost with no problems, delivers the finishing move. Quickly, Victoria then tries to get her over the top rope, as quickly as possible. She gets one leg over the top rope, and tries to get the other, but Trish somehow kicks her away, then tries to hook her out, but Victoria elbows Trish away. She goes for a clothesline, but Trish ducks and Victoria turns around to her again, and is met with a Northern Lights suplex!!!
Trish then gets Victoria on her shoulders and tries to eliminate her, but Victoria desperately holds on. She gets to her feet, and then tries to get Trish out, and both women then nearly go over the top, but both hold on, and crawl back through, under the bottom rope.
Both get up, and fire shots at one another. Trish backs Victoria away, but Vicky then rakes the eyes of Stratus, and hit’s a side suplex on the champion. She then picks her up, and tries to Powerslam the champ out, but Trish counters, and nearly sends Victoria out instead, but Victoria holds on, and ends up on the apron.
Trish thinks she has won, but Victoria then gets back in, and dropkicks her from behind, then tries to get Trish out, but she refuses to go, and fights back in. She then runs at Victoria, but Victoria hit’s a back body drop, following up with a shoulder breaker on her. Victoria shouts to the crowd, yelling that its over, and they boo, despite Victoria being a face.
Victoria pulls Trish up, and rams Stratus into the ring post, and gets her up for a second Widows Peak, but Trish fights it, and rolls through, scores with a kick to the gut, then grabs a hold of Victoria, and goes for the Stratusfaction, but as she bounces her feet on the ropes Victoria counters, and pushes Trish over the top, and Trish nearly loses her footing, but somehow, she ducks down, missing Victoria’s attempted clothesline, and gets a shot in at the ribs, before getting back into the ring.
Trish whips Victoria into the corner, and runs in after her, but Victoria gets a boot up, sending Trish staggering away. Victoria sizes Trish up for a clothesline, but as she goes for it, Trish does her Matrix impersonation, missing the clothesline. Victoria looks perplexed, and is too late to respond, as Trish Chick Kicks her, with Victoria falling out over the top rope, hitting the floor!!!

Eliminated: Victoria by Trish Stratus @ 10:24

Winner: And Still Champion, Trish Stratus

Trish retains the title!!! Victoria gets back up, with help from the official on the outside, before realising she has lost. Victoria slams the ring apron with her hands, venting her frustration from defeat.


Jim Ross:
Trish Stratus, remains the WWE Womens Champion, but Coach, she was pushed to the limit here tonight.


The Coach:
Victoria is rightly agitated from the defeat, because she knows she had Trish right where she wanted her, but in the end, she couldn’t get it done.


Jim Ross:
Needless to say, the celebrations will last all night long for our women’s champion, but for a lot of our superstars, there will be little to no celebrations. But folks, right now, we’d like you to take a look at this…

**End of Preview Video**



Backstage, DX walk around the backstage area, pushing past a few nobodies, before walking into the locker room. We see a number of stars looking in their direction, smiling, having seen the group get their comeuppance tonight. DX give them a glare back, pushing past another few guys, before coming face to face … with The Rock.


The Rock takes a look at each member, grinning broadly, as the DX group stare back, not looking in the mood for any crap.

Shawn Michaels:
Don’t dare. Just, don’t say anything.


The Rock:
What?? Me?? Now, Shawn, why, why would The Rock want to do that??


Shawn Michaels:
I’m not in the mood to mess around with you Rock. Not tonight. So do yourself a favour, and get out of our way.


The Rock:
Rock isn’t gonna move. The Rock got here first … you move.


HBK looks down, before looking back up again, with a smile.


Shawn Michaels:
Y’know Rock, I’d be careful if I were you. Shawn Michaels, and Survivor Series … they go hand in hand. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m quite experienced in screw jobs. Think about it.


The Rock thinks for a moment, then holds his hands up in the air, backing up a bit.


The Rock:
The Rock understands …


The Rock backs up a little more, whilst DX look proud, making The Rock go away


The Rock:
The Rock understands, that you want to perform here with your buddies, and carry out a Survivor Series ‘screw job’ … but why stop there, you could have Mark Jindrak lick Luther Reigns pierced nipple … you could have Garrison Cade live out his favourite dog fetish with you Shawn … have yourself a white Christmas, survivor series screw job, Thanksgiving screw job, a hot toilet blow jo-


Garrison Cade:
I’m glad you understand JABRONI!!!


HBK slaps Cade around the back of the head.


Shawn Michaels:
No, that’s not what I meant at all … and you know it. Go ask Bret Hart what I meant. Rock, I’m sick of everyone and his dog insinuating that DX swings a certain way. I for one, am a happily married man…


Mark Jindrak:
Hey, but that stripper gave you a good time last night Sh-


Michaels clasps his hand over Jindraks mouth


Shawn Michaels:
That was Garrison. I was … I was reading a book in the hotel, remember??


Michaels lets go, and looks to the camera, giving a phoney smile, almost as if he’s trying to suck up to his wife, whilst Jindrak tries to think.


Mark Jindrak:
Nope, it was definitely you Shawn. Garrison was out li-


The Rock:
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHO GOT A GOOD TIME FROM THE MALE STRIPPER!!!


Garrison Cade:
Female stripper.


The Rock:
Know your role, and SHUT YOUR MOUTH!!!


DX all start to cower a little, as The Rock gets fired up.


The Rock:
The fact of the matter is this. No one respects any of you, no one likes any of you, and no one wants to take any of your crap. DX, The Rock says this, you can push around the Raw roster, you can play with each other in the hotel suites, and you can all love strudel, but there is no way … AND THE ROCK MEANS, NO WAY … you’ll intimidate The Great One, no way you’ll push me around, and there is no way that you’ll ever run the locker room … IF YA SMELLLLLLLLLL … WHAT THE ROCK … (Rock goes right besides Michaels ear) issssss cookin.


Rock pushes past, and storms out of the locker room, leaving DX all stood in awe, which soon turns to anger from Michaels.


In the corridor, we see Chris Jericho leading Paul London and AMW for the upcoming triple title match, as we cut back inside the arena…


**Longhorn** The ever recognizable white stretch limo of JBL enters the arena, it alone getting some heat from the fans. The driver steps out, and opens the door, with Jamie Noble stepping out first, followed by the Tag Team Champions, Doug and Danny Basham, before the United States Champion steps out himself, JBL.
The four men walk toward the ring, still talking strategy, with each men eventually stepping inside the ring, awaiting their opponents.

Tony Chimel:
The following contest, is an eight man, classic survivor series elimination match, and it is for the Cruiserweight, Tag Team and United States Championships!!! Introducing first, at a combined weight of 976 pounds, the team of Jamie Noble, the WWE tag team champions, Danny and Doug Basham, and the United States Champion, John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield, they are The Cabinet!!!


Michael Cole:
It’s all about survival tonight Tazz. Fatal Four Way elimination match for the WWE Championship, and another 10 Man Classic Elimination Match, with Team Goldberg facing Team Bring It.


Tazz:
I cannot wait to get it started here tonight Cole.


**Guilty** Harris and Storm make their way out to a great ovation, pumping up the crowd, pointing towards the ring, and motioning around their waists that they want the belts back. AMW stand at the top of the ramp, and wait for their partners to enter the arena.

Tony Chimel:
And their opponents, first, weighing a combined weight of 498 pounds, Chris Harris, James Storm, Americas Most Wanted!!!


Michael Cole:
Harris and Storm lost the titles just three weeks ago, and since then, AMW have been hell bent on taking those belts back.

Tazz:
AMW had five long months with the belts, but obviously, they had longer plans. Tonight, they have a chance to take those titles back, along with Jericho and London.


**Stay in Shadow** Finger Eleven plays Paul London into the arena, getting an unexpectedly big pop from the fans. He high fives AMW, before cupping his ears to the fans, getting a nice reaction. They walk down the ramp a little, awaiting the arrival of Jericho.

Tony Chimel:
From Austin, Texas, weighing 205 pounds, he is the WWE Cruiserweight Champion, Paul London!!!


Michael Cole:
Could this be the night that Paul London loses the Cruiserweight Championship?? Could this be the night that Jamie Noble adds another title to the Cabinets cabinet.

Tazz:
London is the only man on his side with something to lose here, the only guy on the team with a belt right now.


**5-4-3-2-1...BOOM!!!** Chris Jericho enters the arena to a thunderous response from the fans. He looks over at the limo of The Cabinet, and walks towards it, standing on the hood, and ripping the long horn off. JBL is incensed in the ring, whilst Jericho motions he’s going to rip JBL apart too.
Y2J walks to the ramp, pumping up the fans, ahead of this huge match. He stops at his partners, and they nod to each other collectively, before running into the ring, and the Cabinet, quickly slide out, not wanting to be drawn into a fight immediately.


Tony Chimel:
And, their partner, weighing 234 pounds, Chris Jericho!!!


Michael Cole:
Last month, plain and simply, Chris Jericho was screwed out of the United States Championship, by the Cabinet, after he clearly wheeled JBL over the line in their stretcher match. Tonight, he looks to finally take the belt from the champion.

Tazz:
You’ve been whining about that now for weeks Cole. Referees cant call what they don’t see. Jericho got a little unlucky, but if he really is better than JBL, he’ll beat him tonight, right??


8 Man Survivor Series Elimination Match;

WWE United States, Tag Team & Cruiserweight Championship ALL on the Line:

John Bradshaw Layfield (
U.S Champion)
--Chris Jericho

Jamie Noble
--Paul London
(Cruiserweight Champion)

Basham Brothers
(WWE Tag Team Champions)
--America’s Most Wanted

Jericho and his three partners hold the ropes open for The Cabinet to enter the ring. JBL gathers his troops, before he shouts to the referee to make Jericho and his team mates back up. They do so, and exit onto the apron, allowing The Cabinet to re-enter. Noble and The Basham Brothers step onto the apron, whilst JBL steps into the ring, looking across from Chris Harris.

The bell rings, with Chris Jericho leaning over the top rope, calling for a tag from Harris, wanting a piece of JBL, which Wildcat agrees to. Meanwhile, JBL doesn’t look to confident, and quickly paces around the ring, tagging in Jamie Noble. Noble slowly climbs in, as Jericho turns to Paul London, asking him if he wants to take on Noble, with London more than willing, accepting the tag, bringing him into the match.
London and Noble stare across the ring at each other, before they tie up. They grapple around the ring, and eventually, London gets the advantage, shoving Noble to the ground. He mimics the long horn taunt, and has the crowd fired up already, making Noble mad. The Chief of Staff gets up and they tie up again.
This time, Noble gets a hammerlock, but Paul London reverses into a fireman’s carry. Noble runs at London, but the challenger hit’s a back body drop. Noble has a temper tantrum, and starts banging the mat and screaming. JBL tries to calm him down, but Noble starts to get angry. The challenger begins arguing with the referee, whilst Danny Basham walks around the ring and distracts Paul London, giving Noble the opportunity to take advantage.
Noble hit’s a knee to the back of London, then follows up with a back suplex. He stomps Paul London in the corner, taking the wind from London. He goes for a whip, but this is reversed by the Champion, who hit’s a back elbow. He pounds Jamie in the corner, then hit’s a rolling thunder type move in the corner on the chief of staff. London then goes for a whip himself, but this is reversed. London ducks the clothesline, and goes for a standing enziguri, but this is blocked by the challenger, and he trips London to the floor.
Noble bounces off the ropes, but is met by a great dropsault from London. He gets the cover, 1...2...Kick Out!! London then applies a sleeper on Noble, but Noble elbows out, and applies a sleeper of his own, then London quickly fights out, with an arm drag and whips Jamie Noble off the ropes, hitting a spinning heel kick.
Paul London then bounces off the ropes, but Doug grabs his foot, causing a distraction. London is irate. He points at the Tag Champion, then chases him around the ring, but is met by a clothesline from Noble on the outside, who was waiting for London to run around. Jericho and AMW are furious, with the cheap tactics, as The Cabinet start to show some happiness.
He throws him back in the ring and makes the cover, 1...2...Kick Out from London!! The desperate challenger then applies a camel clutch on London, looking for the submission, but the challenger fights back up. He tries to get Noble off his back by ramming him into the corners, but Noble holds on, and hit’s a neck breaker. He gets the cover, 1.…2.…Kick Out!!! Noble whips London into the ropes, but London comes back with a cross body onto Jamie, resulting in a cover … 1…2…Kick Out!!
London then goes up top, which gets a decent pop from the crowd, who are desperate to see London take some risks. He flies off, but is met by a dropkick from Noble. He gets the cover, 1...2...Another kick out from the champion. Now Noble gets back up, and runs at London, but he hit’s an Arm Drag to the Chief of Staff. Paul then goes for a suplex, but Jamie Noble blocks it and cradles London, 1...2...Kick Out!!!
Both men jump up, and look across the ring at each other, before both make tags, with James Storm and Danny Basham being introduced into the match. They quickly lock up, with The Cowboy backing Basham into the corner. The referee steps in, and forces Storm away, which he does, but Danny takes a cheap shot, and turns the tide, pushing Storm into the corner.
Danny chops Storm to a big WOOO from the crowd. He chops him three more times to the same response. Basham then picks The Cowboy up and hit’s a suplex. He gets a cover, 1...2...KICK OUT! Basham then picks him up again, but Storm ducks the punch, and hits one of his own. He tags in Harris to a good pop.
Chris Harris hit’s a clothesline on the Co Secretary of Defence, and then sees Doug come in, and hit’s a Heel kick on Doug, sending him to the floor. Harris hit’s a dropkick on Danny and then hit’s a knee drop. He tags Storm and they hit a double suplex. Both then dropkick Danny, but Doug comes in from behind and hit’s a double clothesline. He is warned by the referee, and banished to the apron, whilst Jericho and London are rightly furious.
Basham then hit’s the suplex on Harris. He tags his partner and they begin to double team The Wildcat. Doug then hit’s a side suplex and begins to work on the back of Wildcat Chris Harris. They look set to continue the pressure, as they tag in JBL.
Layfield drops an elbow on Chris Harris, and stomps on his back. He hit’s a backbreaker, gets a cover, 1...2...Kick Out. JBL then tags in his Chief of Staff, Jamie Noble. Noble goes right to work, with forearms to the back, and whips him hard in the corner, follows up with a reverse elbow, 1...2...Kick Out. Noble then applies a cobra clutch. He poses in front of the remaining three members of the opposition, who don’t take too kindly to it, and Jericho gets in and boots Jamie down.
Jericho is banished from the ring, but in the meantime, Harris manages to tag in London, who, like he normally does, uses his speed to keep the advantage, running off the ropes, dropkicking a seated Noble. He pounds away at him, then boots Noble back down, 1...2...Kick Out. He then tags in his partner, Chris Jericho to a major ovation from the fans. Jericho runs in, clothes lining Noble down, then knocks JBL off the apron with a forearm.
He picks up Noble, and goes for a suplex, but Danny Basham holds the tights of Noble, stopping the movement of the suplex, and Jericho is forced to break the hold. He then knocks Danny off the apron and as he comes back, he is met with a high knee from Noble. Jamie then sets up Jericho for the Tiger Bomb, but Harris breaks it up. He goes at it with Noble, and gets the upper hand. He and Jericho whip Noble off the ropes, and hit a double shoulder knockdown on Jamie, 1...2...Kick Out. Y2J, pumps up the fans, and makes a tag out, to The Cowboy, James Storm.
Storm hit’s a dropkick to Noble, then a suplex, hooks the leg, 1...2...Kick Out. He tags in his partner, and they then hit a double sidewalk slam on the Chief of Staff. Now, Storm exit’s the ring, and Harris takes over. Vertical suplex from Harris gets, 1...2...Kick Out. Harris makes the tag, bringing Paul London back into the match.
London bounces off the ropes, knocking down Noble with a clothesline, then bounces off the ropes, going for a leg drop, but Danny Basham quickly drops down, dragging Noble out of harms way, with Paul London leg dropping the mat only. Noble staggers to his feet, and tags in the United States Champion. JBL steps into the ring, like a man on a mission, dropping an elbow on Paul London, following with a lateral press, 1...2...Kick Out. JBL quickly drags the CW Champion back to his feet, and charges him into the corner, scoring with knees to the mid section.
Bradshaw throws some big right hands to the face of Paul London, before whipping him across the ring to the opposite corner, and charges at him, but London pulls himself together, and leapfrogs the U.S Champion, before throwing his hand out, tagging Chris Jericho!!!
Jericho leaps into the ring, not giving JBL any time to do anything, knocking him down with a dropkick. Jericho runs off the ropes, ducks a clothesline from JBL, and swings around the neck of Layfield, hitting a sleeper into a reverse neck breaker. Jericho knocks all three members of The Cabinet of the apron, before he gets JBL again as the United States Champion reaches his feet. Jericho takes him from behind, and nails the Breakdown!!! He covers, 1...2...JBL GETS THE SHOULDER UP!!!!
Jericho looks at the referee, holding three fingers up, before he gets back up, runs off the ropes, and goes for a cross body, but he is caught by JBL, who goes for the Fall Away Slam, but Jericho fights out, ducks a reverse elbow, and gets a double leg take down, APPLYING THE WALLS OF JERICHO!!!!
JBL almost instantly taps out … but the referee is distracted by The Basham Brothers, who try to get into the ring with a steel chair. Jericho releases the hold, and jumps to the top rope, hitting a springboard dropkick, knocking the tag team champions off the apron.
Meanwhile, AMW and Paul London are making their way around ringside, to take care of the interfering Bashams, whilst Jericho scores with a bulldog on JBL, and he jumps to the ropes for the Lionsault … BUT JAMIE NOBLE PUSHES HIM OFF THE ROPES!!! Jericho slips, and folds up in the ropes, as JBL slowly recovers, getting to his feet, and rests on the ropes, as Jericho struggles up. Jericho gets to his feet, but gets run down with a CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL!!!! JBL hooks the leg,

James Storm tries to break the count, but is just too late. The count is made, and the leader is gone. But immediately, James Storm is on top of JBL, pounding the leader of The Cabinet down. The referee signals for more officials, as Chris Jericho starts to recover, with the referee not wanting the match to get out of control.

The Cowboy whips JBL off the ropes, but what he doesn’t see, is Doug Basham make a blind tag on Bradshaw, and as JBL comes back, Storm hit’s a back body drop. He turns around, to continue to punish JBL, but from behind, Basham rolls him up, grabbing the tights,

Eliminated: James Storm by Doug Basham @ 07:01


Now, Chris Harris and Paul London are left facing all four members of the dominant Cabinet. However, James Storm - out of fury from being taken by surprise, starts to brawl with Doug Basham. Chris Harris gets into the ring, to help his partner, and they send JBL over the top, leaving Doug Basham alone for now. Harris and Storm hit a double flapjack, then signal for the Death Sentence. The referee tries to stop them, but Harris gets Doug into position, and Storm flies off the ropes, connecting the move.
Before Harris can get a cover, the referee orders Storm from the ring, which distracts Harris too. As this happens, Danny Basham slides into the ring, and rolls Doug out, then plays dead himself, with the switcheroo in effect. Harris doesn’t spot it, and turns back around to cover him with James Storm now on his way out. Harris goes for a cover, but Danny sits up, and cradles the Wildcat!!! …

!!!!!
NO!!! The referee spots the difference between Danny and Doug, with Doug laid out at ringside still, whilst Danny looks fresh as a daisy. He discounts the fall, which means we are still at 4 on 2. The referee starts to count Doug Basham out, as he is rightly the legal man for The Cabinet, but Jamie Noble is quick to roll his partner in, not wanting him to lose by a count out. Harris baseball slides Noble out of the way, then knees Danny in the head, knocking him out of the ring, before covering the other Basham, 1...2...KICK OUT!!!
Harris looks around, and sees the remaining stars left in the match, all making their way back onto their respective corners, as he drags Doug Basham to his feet. He whips Basham off the ropes, and knocks him down with a reverse elbow, following up with a lateral press, 1...2...Kick Out!!!
The Wildcat drags Basham to his corner, and tags in London. The CW Champ gets in, and kicks Doug in the corner, before whipping him to the Cabinets corner, where Danny Basham makes a blind tag, which London doesn’t spot. He runs in at the corner, and splashes Doug Basham, before dragging him out, and goes for an inverted back breaker, but Danny takes him down with a clothesline to the back of the head.
London is knocked down, and falls to the outside, with Basham in hot pursuit, coming after him. He follows out, and the referee quickly instructs Harris and the Cabinet members to stay in their corners. Danny charges London into the steel steps, before dropping him, chest first onto the barricade. Quickly, Danny rolls the CW Champion back into the ring, and covers, 1...2...Kick Out. Basham has a wry smile, and drags London up to his feet. He bounces off the ropes, and runs at London, but London leapfrogs him, and quickly tags in Harris, getting out of the ring, as quick as he can.
Harris enters, and immediately locks up with Basham, taking Danny down with a snap mare, followed by a kick to the back. He bounces off the ropes, and puts Basham back down with a flying shoulder tackle, before getting a pin, 1...2...Kick Out from Danny!!! Basham pulls himself up in the corner, as Harris signals for a splash. He runs in for it, but JBL quickly pulls Danny out of the corner, saving him. Harris hit’s the corner, and staggers out, into the path of the tag champion, who hit’s a powerslam!!! Danny doesn’t cover, and tags out instead, to Jamie Noble.
The Chief of Staff enters once again, and he picks up where Danny left off, hooking the leg, 1...2...Kick Out. Noble doesn’t ease off, and drags Harris up by the arm, before pulling him in, and turning him inside out with a clothesline!! Noble again covers, 1...2...Kick Out!!! As before, Noble picks Harris up, by the arm, and yanks him in for another clothesline, turning him inside out once more. Again, he covers, 1...2...Kick Out!!!
Noble follows Harris to the corner, as The Wildcat tries to get some rest bite, but with Noble closing in, he doesn’t get much. Jamie Noble hit’s a chop, and pulls Harris out of the corner, following up with a snap suplex. He covers once again, 1...2...KICK OUT!!! The Chief of Staff gets up, and makes the tag to Doug Basham, who enters the ring with a fist drop onto Harris, following up with a cover, 1...2...Kick Out!!!
Chris Harris appears to be in trouble right now, after being singled out for an extended period of time. Basham backs him into the corner, scoring with some kicks to the mid section, before pulling him back out. He goes for a suplex, but Harris blocks it, and frees himself, before going toe to toe, shot for shot, but Basham, the fresher man, gets the best of this exchange, knocking Wildcat down with a clothesline. Doug picks him up, and this time, manages to execute the Suplex. Basham reaches his feet, and opens his arms out, getting a big amount of heat from the fans.
Basham drops his knee across the throat, before getting back up, reaching to tag in JBL. JBL steps in, and clubs the neck of Wildcat, before scoring with a swinging neck breaker. He hooks the leg, 1...2...London Breaks the count, in an act of desperation. JBL doesn’t look to annoyed, actually smiling, as he realises how desperate London is to keep Harris in the match.
JBL drags Harris to the ropes, setting his adversaries leg on the middle rope, before leaping in the air, landing on the body part, contorting the leg. Harris immediately grabs his leg, feeling the pain of the move from Layfield. The U.S Champion lifts the leg, and pulls it back, jumping behind Harris, pulling it further, causing more agony.
Bradshaw tries to drop his knee onto the knee of Harris, but The Wildcat kicks JBL away, before using the ropes to get to a vertical base. He tries to kick Layfield in the gut, but JBL catches his leg. He talks trash to The Wildcat, but talks too much, as Harris nails him with an enziguri!!!!! Bradshaw falls down, as does Harris. Harris tries to crawl to make a tag, but Layfield quickly wraps his leg around the left ankle of Harris, not allowing him to move, whilst he tags in Danny Basham!!!
Danny quickly gets in, and drops an elbow to the small of the back of Harris, whilst JBL keeps his legs wrapped around Harris’ ankle, not allowing Wildcat to move. Danny takes advantage of the situation, dropping his elbow, three more times, with Harris unable to move. Layfield is finally told to let go, and get out of the ring by the official, whilst Danny continues to punish Harris.
Danny drags Harris to his feet, and quickly pulls him in, and executes a beautiful Samoan Drop. Cover, 1...2...Kick Out!!! Right now in this match, The Cabinet is dominating Harris, wearing down his entire body. He tries to crawl to his corner, but Danny drags him further away, before scooping him up, and hitting a front slam, following in with the hook of the far leg, 1...2...Kick Out!!!
Danny Basham stands over Harris, stomping his chest, and pulls him up once again, before picking him up, and Danny easily holds Harris up, before dropping him with an atomic drop. He makes a lacklustre cover, 1...2...Kick Out!!! Danny shakes his head, looking quite angry that Harris once again got his shoulder up. Basham drags The Wildcat back to a vertical base, before grasping the waist of Chris Harris, and applying an Abdominal Stretch.
Harris is looking like he is in a world of hurt, caught dead centre in the ring, with Basham showing no sign of releasing the grip, pounding at the exposed rib cage, causing Harris more pain. In Harris’ corner, London tries to fire him up, stamping his feet on the apron, trying to get the fans behind him.
Basham continues to apply the pressure to the Wildcat, with Danny not looking even close to letting go. Harris appears to be fading, and the referee asks if he wants to give in. Harris doesn’t give a reply, which forces the referee to take a better look at the star. He raises Harris hand, which immediately falls. The referee raises the arm again, but once again, the arm falls. One last time, the referee elevates the arm, and as it looks to be falling … but suddenly, it stays up, to a major pop, and a huge sigh of relief. Harris looks to have gained one last burst of energy. He begins to throw elbows at the temple of Danny Basham, which result in Danny losing his grip, and Harris manages to free himself. The Wildcat bounces off the ropes, and runs at Basham for a clothesline, but he ducks, and applies the Abdominal Stretch again!!!
Basham nods his head at his brother, who averts the referees attention, allowing Danny to pull on the ropes, forcing more pressure on the ribs of Harris, but lets go, as soon as the referee turns back around. Harris shakes his arm, trying to fire up, whilst London claps his hands, wanting The Wildcat to make a comeback, as he tries to fight free. Basham notices the fight of Harris, and breaks the stretch, but gets Harris up for a Pumphandle Slam … but Harris is too heavy, and he rolls out, hitting a reverse DDT!!!!
Chris Harris stays down, as does Danny Basham, with the referee beginning a mandatory ten count. 1...2...3...4...5... Harris starts to crawl across the ring … 6...7... Harris reaches out for a tag from Paul London, but Jamie Noble quickly runs in, and drags Harris back across the ring, stopping Harris from making a much needed tag.
Paul London tries to get in to make up for the cheating, but the referee stands in his way, ordering London back out, whilst The Cabinet put the boots to Harris in the corner. They quickly stop, as the referee gets London out. By now, Danny Basham has recovered, and he makes a tag out to
Quickly, Basham makes a tag to his brother, keeping The Cabinet fresh. Doug Basham whips Harris off the ropes, and drives his knee into the mid section, turning Harris inside out. He gets a lateral press, 1...2...Kick Out!!! Doug rubs his forehead in the face of Harris, and pins him down again, 1...2...Kick Out from the Wildcat.
Basham drags Harris up, and whips The Wildcat off the ropes, picking him up off the ground, and scores with a sidewalk slam. He hooks the leg, 1...2...Kick Out again from Harris. Basham pounds the mat, venting his frustration with not being able to put Harris away yet. He waits as Harris slowly gets up, before putting The Wildcat back on the canvas with a front slam. Doug now looks to take a risk, and climbs to the top rope, with JBL, Danny and Noble all looking quite worried about him in unfamiliar territory. He looks a little uncomfortable, and eventually decides to jump before he falls. He goes for a cross body on Harris … BUT GETS CAUGHT!!! Harris quickly nails the Catatonic!!! He hooks the leg,

Eliminated: Doug Basham by Chris Harris @ 15:56


Immediately, Danny Basham gets into the ring, and charges Chris Harris into the corner, trying to keep the pressure on. He mounts Harris in the corner, and throws a number of right hands. Whilst this happens, Paul London makes a blind tag on Harris, which no one, expect the referee spots. In the corner, Harris hooks his arms around the legs of Danny Basham, and charges out, hitting a spinning Powerbomb!!!
Instantly, JBL and Noble run in, and charge Harris out of the ring, still thinking he is the legal man, not wanting him to pin Danny. But while this happens, Paul London climbs the ropes, takes a look around, and flies through the air … CONNECTING WITH THE 450 SPLASH!!! London has the cover …

Eliminated: Danny Basham by Paul London @ 16:23


In a matter of moments, London and Harris has levelled the match, eliminating two members of The Cabinet!!!! On the outside, JBL and Noble are livid. They argue with the referee, who motions that London made a blind tag. JBL pulls Noble away from the ring, and the two men start to talk strategy, having been just pulled back level. Harris and London rejoice in the ring, having made a stunning comeback in the last few minutes, whilst the referee calls for JBL and Noble to get back in the ring, with JBL accepting, slowly entering the ring, with Paul London.
JBL quickly goes for a punch, but London side steps him. Bradshaw stands by the ropes, looking frustrated, and turns around, telling London to tag the man in, because he doesn’t wrestle children. London laughs, and slaps JBL across the face, infuriating the U.S Champion. Layfield takes another swing at London, but again, he misses, with London now sticking his tongue out at JBL, acting like a kid, to further annoy Layfield. JBL looks set to explode, as Paul London finally gets serious, and offers a tag to Chris Harris, which is accepted by The Wildcat, making him the legal man.
They move around the ring, both looking for an opening, then lock up. JBL goes behind, but the Wildcat counters with an arm drag. Bradshaw pulls himself up, and the two have a stand off. They lock up again, and Harris shoves Bradshaw to the ground. He jumps up again, and looks Harris dead in the eye, then goes for a right hand, but Wildcat counters, and strikes JBL three times, then goes for a side suplex, but JBL counters into a lateral press, 1...2...Kick Out. Bradshaw gets up, and runs at Harris, but Harris drops to the ground, only for JBL to stop, and drop an elbow.
JBL picks up Wildcat and whips him off the ropes. He goes for a clothesline, but Harris ducks, and hit’s a drop toe hold, then rides JBL around the ring and slaps him. Following this, JBL jumps up in fury at being humiliated. He talks with Noble for a second before Harris tell him to bring it on. Bradshaw obliges, and they tie up again. JBL gets a headlock, but Harris pushes him off into the ropes, then knocks him down with a shoulder block. He goes to drop an elbow, but JBL moves out of the way, then goes for an elbow of his own, but Harris moves out of the way!!! The Wildcat looks at JBL, before reaching out, making a tag to his partner, Paul London.
London comes in right away with a dropkick to the back of the head on Layfield, followed by a cover, 1...2...Kick Out. London then backs JBL into the corner, and begins to nail a number of shoulders to the sternum, then whips him across the ring to the opposite corner. He runs across, but JBL gets a boot up, and the Cruiserweight Champion staggers out. JBL then goes for a Powerbomb, but London counters into a hurricanrana, and gets a cover, 1...2...Kick Out from JBL. Paul London keeps on the United States Champion, and whips Bradshaw to the corner, following in, and hits him with a running clothesline, followed by a bulldog. He covers again, 1...2...Kick Out. London, on fire tonight, starts to stomp at JBL, then goes for a suplex, but doesn’t have enough power to get a man of Layfields size up. JBL counters, and hit’s a suplex of his own, getting a cover, 1...2...Kick Out. The U.S Champion brings London to the corner, and makes a tag to Noble.
Noble comes in, striking London in the corner with a running high knee, before whipping him off the ropes, and goes for a clothesline, but London ducks, and hit’s a head scissors on Noble. Paul London then follows up with a suplex, and tags in Harris. Wildcat then gets a wristlock on Noble, but Jamie uses his agility to good effect, flipping over, and hitting an arm drag, then applying an armbar on his opponent.
Harris tries to break free, but Noble has the hold firmly, and expertly locked in for now. Harris uses his feet to get closer to the ropes, and eventually grips his leg around the ropes for the break. Noble waits until the count of four, before releasing the hold.
The Wildcat gets to his feet, shaking his arm loose. He then circles the ring, as does Jamie Noble. Noble goes face to face with him, trying to taunt, but Wildcat right away slaps him in the face. The Chief of Staff then staggers, and Harris takes advantage with a big clothesline. Harris pounds on Noble in the corner, before whipping him off the ropes, and meeting him with a back elbow. He goes for a cover, 1...2...Noble kicks out!!
Jamie rolls to the outside, trying to get himself together, but London then comes from behind, and whips him into the barricade, before throwing Noble back into the ring. Harris is quick to act, and hit’s a delayed vertical suplex to Noble … gets a cover, 1...2...Kick Out. The Wildcat then whips Jamie off the ropes, but Noble ducks a kick, and comes back with a High Knee, taking Noble down. The Chief of Staff then brings Chris Harris to the corner, and tags in JBL, who has no problems getting in, with his opponent in a bad way. JBL beats on Harris in the corner with kicks and right hands. He then goes to whip him off the ropes, but Harris reverses and puts JBL down with a knee to the gut, followed by a neck breaker.

Harris then fires up with a number of quick clotheslines to Layfield, then bounces off the ropes, but Noble sneakily drives the knee into his back as he comes off the ropes, and JBL follows up with a Fall Away Slam. He gets a cover, 1...2...Kick Out!! JBL rolls onto his back, looking up at the ceiling, wondering what it’ll take to get the job done. He gets back to his feet, and drags the Wildcat to the corner and tags in Jamie Noble. They then double team him with a double suplex, and Noble gets a cover, 1...2...Kick Out!!

Jamie Noble continues the pressure and goes for a side slam, but Harris fights out, and punches at Noble, then hit’s an inverted atomic drop, followed by a dropkick. Harris goes to make a tag, but JBL runs in and hits him with a running shoulder, stopping him from tagging out. London then tries to get in, but the referee holds him back. The two remaining members of the Cabinet then take the opportunity for a double team move, with them stealing the reverse 3D used by The Dudley Boys, before Noble then tags out to JBL. JBL then pounds on Wildcat with forearms to the back, and applies a chin lock.
Chris Harris doesn’t wait long to try and make a comeback, almost immediately fighting back up, but Layfield drives his knee into the mid section and hit’s a front slam, followed by an elbow. 1...2...Kick Out. JBL then talks some trash to the Wildcat, and knocks down London with a right hand. He makes the cover, 1...2...Broken by London!! The referee then takes the Cruiserweight Champion to the other corner to get him back out. Meanwhile, The Cabinet take advantage by hitting a double sidewalk slam. Noble then stays in, without making a tag, gets a cover, 1...2...Kick Out from Harris!!
Harris then starts to fire out right hands at Noble in an attempt to get back into it, but just as he looks to be getting the upper hand, JBL pulls him down by the hair. Noble then tags out and JBL comes in with a shoulder block from the second rope, but Harris ducks, and gets the roll up on Bradshaw, 1...2...Kick Out!! JBL, taken by surprise then jumps up, and runs at Harris, but Wildcat counters into a back body drop. He then crawls for a tag, but Noble then distracts the referee and he misses the tag being made.
Paul London looks to get some offence on JBL, but he is restrained by the ref and brought back to the apron. He is absolutely irate, and tells the referee to keep an eye on the match.

The Cabinet once again take advantage and double team, with a catapult backbreaker move at the ropes, then make a tag. Noble hit’s a spinning heel kick, then gets another cover, 1...2...Broken by London again!!! Noble talks some smack to London, and he looks to get in the ring, but is again stopped by the referee, giving The Cabinet the chance to take advantage, by pulling Harris into the corner and choking him. Harris then starts to fire up and swings rights all over, hitting JBL, Noble, Layfield, Jamie, Bradshaw, Chief of Staff, JBL, Noble, without reply. Harris tries to get across the ring to his partner, but JBL and Noble grab a leg each, and stop him, dragging him back to their corner. JBL then hit’s a side suplex, and tags in Noble again. Noble goes up top, but Harris, kicks the ropes, and Jamie straddles. Wildcat then dropkicks Layfield off the apron, and jumps to the top rope, and hits Noble with a superplex!!!

Both men are down, and the referee begins to count, 1.….2.….3.….4.….5.….(Harris then starts to recover, and gets to his feet, but Noble holds his leg again. Harris then jumps trying to keep his balance, and then connects with an Enziguri) Harris then crawls……and TAGS IN PAUL LONDON!!!!
London comes in, knocks down Noble, knocks down Layfield, knocks down Noble, knocks down Layfield. Dropkick to Noble, head scissors to JBL, flapjack to Noble, and a spinning heel kick to JBL. London then picks up Noble and hit’s a front slam, before he goes up top for a top rope leg drop, but JBL pulls his partner out of the way, leaving London to hitting just the canvas. Harris then nails a double clothesline to both JBL and Noble, then takes Bradshaw to the outside, leaving just Jamie and London, the two legal men. London goes for a running knee lift, but Noble moves out of the way, then goes for a cradle,

Noble then goes for a T-Bone suplex, but London flips over and nails a DDT!!! He gets a cover,

……JBL BREAKS THE COVER!!!
London is irate. He goes right after JBL, and pounds him down in the corner, but the referee steps in, and sends Bradshaw back to the outside, and the match finally settles down again. London goes for a second DDT, but Noble counters, and hit’s a monkey flip, then hit’s a chop block, taking the CW Champion down to his knees, looking to be in considerable pain.
Noble spots the weakness, and stomps, then tags in JBL. Layfield begins to yank at the leg, then ties it up in the ropes. He kicks at the leg, and drops an elbow onto the knee. JBL drags London to the middle and tries to apply the figure four, but smartly, London rolls him up, 1...2...Kick Out!!! London gets to his feet, but Layfield chop blocks him right back down. He kicks at the knee, wearing and tearing at the body part. He then goes for the figure four again, but Storm kicks him away, then jumps to his feet, and nails an arm drag, and a second … and a third … and a fourth. JBL staggers up, but is too dizzy to do anything, and instead, he flops to the mat, ala Ric Flair. Both men are down, and begin to crawl to their corners….London is inches away……Noble is inches away….BOTH MAKE A TAG!!!!!
Harris runs right through Noble with a clothesline, before knocking JBL off the apron. He scoops Noble up, and hit’s a front slam, followed by a leg drop. He gets a cover, 1...2...Kick Out. Harris drags Noble back up, and whips him into the corner, then follows in for a clothesline, but Noble moves out of the way, and Harris hit’s the turnbuckle. JBL, on the floor, gets Harris’ attention, pulling his leg, enraging The Wildcat.
Noble spots the situation, and pulls the referee out of the way, as Harris bends over the top rope grabbing JBL by the hair … BUT GETS WAFFLED WITH THE UNITED STATES TITLE!!!! He staggers back into the ring, with Noble pushing the referee aside, and grabs Harris, before hitting a flawless Tornado DDT!!!!! Noble hooks the leg, whilst JBL holds London on the outside …

Eliminated: Chris Harris by Jamie Noble @ 23:22


Noble has eliminated Harris, and suddenly we are down to the final three men. JBL and Jamie Noble remain for The Cabinet, and the Cruiserweight Champion all by himself, Paul London. Two more officials at ringside usher a woozy Harris to the back, as it comes down to Paul London on his own to provide victory for his team.
London is slow to get in the ring, where JBL and Noble wait for him, smiling, and nodding, rubbing their hands together, knowing they have London right where they want him. The referee orders JBL out of the ring, which distracts Noble, and allows London to jump onto the ropes, coming off with a springboard heel kick!!! He covers, … …1...2...BROKEN BY JBL!!!
The referee orders JBL back out, with JBL holding his hands up in the air, apologising, whilst Jamie Noble recovers, and puts the boots to Paul London, before bouncing off the ropes, hitting a knee to the face. He drags London to the corner, legally tagging JBL in.
JBL pounds London in the corner, eventually dropping down, whipping London across the ring, hard into the turnbuckle. Layfield runs in at him, but London gets a foot up, knocking JBL away. The CW Champion runs at JBL, but John catches Paul with a power slam, hooking the leg, 1...2...Kick Out!!! Bradshaw gets to his feet, trying to keep London down, before making a tag to his Chief of Staff.
Jamie Noble immediately picks London up, but is caught with a right, and a second, but Noble stops the momentum for London, with a hard knee to the sternum of the CW Champion. He whips London to the corner, and follows in with a corner splash, which has London stagger out, allowing Noble to hit a reverse DDT to the Champ. He covers, 1...2...KICK OUT!!! He places Londons head on the middle rope, and chokes him with his knee, until the official gives Jamie the five count. Noble lets go at four, then bounces off the ropes, and scores with a knee to the back of the head of London. Noble drags London back to Bradshaw for a tag.
JBL enters, looking ready to unload some pent up aggression. He backs London into the corner, and delivers a flurry of right hands, elbows and forearms before whipping London off the ropes, and hitting him with a boot to the face. JBL scrambles and makes the cover, 1...2...Kick Out!!! He instantly drags London back to his feet, and whips him off the ropes, to go for another boot, but this time, London ducks, and comes back with a superkick!!
London quickly reacts, and attempts to apply a Figure Four, but JBL moves, and kicks wildly to stop getting the submission applied, and he kicks London back into the ropes, spinning him around as he comes back, and hit’s a second big boot to the face!!! He covers, 1...2...Kick Out!!! JBL appears to be losing his temperament now, with his face turning red with fury, having not gotten his way with London thus far. Jamie Noble notices, and makes the decision to make a blind tag, before Bradshaw does something that could affect them eliminating London. Obviously, Layfield isn’t happy, but Noble tries to reassure him.
Noble drags London up, and hit’s a short arm clothesline, before he hooks the leg, 1...2...Kick Out!!! Noble looks up, disappointed that that didn’t get the job done this time. He waits as London reaches his feet, then charges at him, knocking him down with a running knee.
The Chief of Staff makes his way back over to his corner, and makes a tag to JBL, who has now fully recovered from the near loss of temper moments ago. He backs London into the corner, and hits a hat trick of chops, all of which receiving a ‘WOOOOO’ from the on looking fans. He whips London to the opposite corner, and runs in after him, but London gets a foot up, which sends Layfield staggering away. London then goes for a Suplex, but JBL, counters, and gets an inside cradle, 1...2...Kick Out from the Cruiserweight Champion!!!
London shoots up, but is clotheslined back down by JBL, giving the two heels the advantage once again. Layfield makes a tag to Noble, who enters the ring, and boots London in the face, before quickly tagging back out to JBL, who looks a little surprised by the quick tag. Bradshaw gets in the ring, bounces off the ropes, and knocks down Paul London with a third boot, almost turning him inside out!!!! Hooks the leg, 1...2...London Kicks out!!!
John Layfield isn’t ready to stop the attack, and drags London up again, going for a suplex, but London blocks it. London frees himself after pounding at the rib cage of JBL, then bounces off the ropes, but JBL is ready for him, swinging his right hand, only for London to side step it, and come off the opposite side, going for the flying clothesline, but both men have the same idea … with the obvious result being that they hit each other!!!!
Both men go down, with the fans rising to their feet, in anticipation for what may happen next. Both men begin to crawl to their corners, but London knows he has no one to tag in. Noble enters the ring, and drops an elbow on London, not allowing him to his feet. The fans are livid, whilst The Chief of Staff looks very proud of himself.
Noble gets back out, to officially tag in with Bradshaw. Jamie grabs Paul London and stomps him down in the corner, before hitting a brainbuster. He hooks the leg, for what should be a victory

……1……

……KICK OUT……
Jamie Noble cant believe Paul London is still in this!!! He calls JBL, and tells him to help him out. Noble slaps the face of London, then holds him up for Bradshaw to hit. JBL pounds at the mid section, and the face, with Noble telling him to hit him harder, eventually giving him the idea to hit the Clothesline from Hell. JBL nods, shakes his arm loose, bounces of the ropes, and runs at London … BUT LONDON DUCKS … AND JBL HITS NOBLE!!!!!
Noble falls into the corner, as Bradshaw stands over him in shock. JBL now runs at London, but the Cruiserweight Champion drop toe holds JBL into the ropes, tying him up in them!!! Layfield can only watch, as London catches Noble with a German Suplex, bridging the cover …

Eliminated: Jamie Noble by Paul London @ 26:55


It’s all down to two men!!! The under dog, Paul London, and the dominant, bigger, U.S Champion, JBL. One of these men will lose his title!!! London goes to attack the defenceless JBL, but Noble grabs Londons foot, distracting him for a few moments, allowing JBL to free himself … AND NAILS THE CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL!!!!!! Bradshaw covers …

…………1…………
……
………2………

………………FOOT ON THE ROPE………………
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
JBL looks up, asking the referee what just happened. The official, looks at JBL, and points to the rope, kicking it to signify that London broke the count. JBL shakes his head in disbelief, as he pulls himself up on the ropes, in a state of shock, unable to fathom what just happened. He even holds up three fingers at the referee, who again points at the ropes.
Layfield stands over London, who tries to pull himself up on the U.S Champion, with JBL STILL shocked. He motions that this is it now, and boots London back to the mat, before JBL drops an elbow. He drops down, and hooks the far leg, 1...2...Kick Out!!! Bradshaw nods, almost expecting the kick out.
The United States Champion, once again drags the smaller opponent up, and motions for the Clothesline from Hell to end this match now, but as he runs off the ropes, he is met by a dropsault from London!!! Paul London fires up, bouncing off the ropes, and tackling JBL down with a head scissors, before beginning to pound at the head of JBL!!! London looks to be stepping it up a level, digging deep, showing his heart, with some furious shots to the head of John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield!!!
London gets to his feet after pounding on JBL, with the New Hampshire faithful going nuts for Paul. He shows his respect to the fans, then knocks down The U.S champion with a roaring elbow. He gets a cover, 1...2...Kick Out!! London continues to step it up, and hit’s a headlock takedown, goes for a sleeper, but JBL fights it, and pushes London into the ropes, then shoulder blocks him down. JBL gets a cover now, 1...2...Kick Out!! JBL doesn’t look pleased, and picks up his adversary. He goes for a whip, but London blocks it, holding the rope. JBL then throws a right, but London, showing his tenacity yet again, throws one right back. JBL throws one, but London again strikes back, somehow managing to go toe to toe with the brawler. This doesn’t last long though, and JBL, being the much bigger man, dominates Paul London in the end, striking with some heavy blows.
JBL attempts an Irish whip but London reverses. The Cruiserweight Champion tries a clothesline but JBL ducks. He comes back off the ropes with a shoulder, but London rolls out of the way and hits a quick dropkick to Layfield’s back. The cruiserweight jumps to his feet and bounces off the ropes, with JBL getting to his feet, and faces London running at him for a cross body, but Layfield low bridges the ropes, and London goes flying over the top rope, crashing face first on the floor!!! JBL quickly rolls out after him, and stomps on the head, then whips London into the barrier, before quickly rolling the Cruiserweight Champion back inside, breaking the count.
Layfield laughs at the knocked out London, and gets into an argument with the crowd. He tells them it’s over now, and that The Cabinet will be full of gold, thanks to him. London looks to be totally out of it right now, and Bradshaw gets a quick, lazy cover.

…………………Kickout from London…………………
!!!!!!
JBL tries to keep calm. He picks up the CW Champion and tries to go for a powerbomb, but London, in one sudden burst, spins around, and gets a sunset flip on JBL, 1...2...KICK OUT!! Layfield gets back up immediately, but London then goes for a backslide, 1.…2.…ANOTHER KICK OUT!!! Again, JBL jumps up, but the opponent rolls him up, 1.…2.…KICK OUT AGAIN FROM JBL!!! Bradshaw gets to his feet, and this time, walks into a cradle, 1...2...KICK OUT!!! Both men jump up, but London leaps on JBL’s shoulders, before taking him down for a crucifix pin, 1...2...Kick Out!!!!!
Bradshaw then gets up, but drops out of the ring, stopping the on fire CW Champion. JBL walks around ringside while London is held back inside, being stopped from going after him. The referee leans out of the ring to instruct JBL to re-enter, but as he does, London bounces off the ropes, and uses the referee as a springboard to hit an Asai Moonsault, taking down JBL!!!!
The fans eat this up, with a major ‘LETS GO LONDON’ chant filling the arena for London right now. The referee begins a ten count, with both men down on the outside … 1...2...3...4...5...6 …… Both men begin to roll into the ring, breaking the count of the referee. London, somehow looks to be fresher, and is first to his feet. He kicks JBL a few times, before running off the ropes, and hit’s a springboard cross body, taking JBL down again, 1...2...Kick Out!!!
Paul London pulls himself up on the ropes, looking exhausted after such a gruelling match. He gets up, takes a deep breath, and climbs the ropes, but JBL spots an opening, and quickly pushes the ropes, with London straddling the top, after losing his balance. JBL takes a moment to compose himself, before standing back up, and climbs to the middle rope, grabbing Paul London. JBL holds London up, and looks around, shrugging off the attempts of a fight back from London, and delivers a top rope FALL AWAY SLAM!!! JBL rolls over, and hooks the leg tight,

… 1 …

…………SHOULDER UP…………
!!!!!!!
Bradshaw starts to look a little angrier as London refuses to lay down, and refuses to end his six months as CW Champion. He drags his gutsy opponent to his feet, but London starts to fight back. He throws a number of right hands, then bounces off the ropes, but as he comes back, JBL hit’s a side walk slam!!! Layfield gets a cover,

……1……

…………2…………

…KICK OUT…
London still refuses to go down … he STILL refuses to die!!! JBL is now very angry. He looks around at the rabid fans, who continue to cheer on the under dog. He picks up London, and goes for a suplex, but he blocks. JBL tries again, but again, it’s blocked. London then fights out with relentless shots to the ribcage, and bounces off the ropes, but he is met with a vicious spine buster from the U.S Champion upon his return!!! JBL hooks the leg again, counting along with the referee…
…..1.….

………KICKOUT………
!!!!!!!!!
Bradshaw gulps hard, as he cant believe London is still in this match, despite his best offence, and realises he clearly underestimated him. JBL picks London up, and whips him off the ropes, but Rey comes back, and rolls off JBL’s back, and rolls him up, 1...2...Kick Out!!! JBL shoots up, but London comes back and goes for a bulldog, but JBL counters, and throws London into the ropes, then goes for the Clothesline From Hell … BUT LONDON DOES THE SPLITS … JBL misses, and turns around … JAW BREAKER FROM LONDON!!! JBL staggers around the ring, and London waits to pick his moment, which he does, with a reverse neck breaker!!! London feels the momentum, and nips up, quickly climbing the ropes. He climbs, and looks around … AND FLIES THROUGH THE AIR FOR THE SHOOTING STAR … BUT JBL GETS HIS KNEES UP IN THE AIR!!!! London gets winded from the knees, and rolls around in absolute agony. JBL lays in the corner, with the ropes holding him up, as he watches Paul London try to reach his feet. Layfield zeros in, as London staggers, clutching his ribs as he gets up … CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL!!!! JBL hooks the leg,

Eliminated: Paul London by JBL @ 30:57

Winner: John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield

The Cabinet score all the gold!!! JBL, looking exhausted, rolls out of the ring, and collects the four championship belts, mainly clutching the U.S Title, as he begins to make his way up the ramp, looking to the sky relieved to have won.


Michael Cole:
The Cabinet, have retain the United States, and Tag Team Titles here tonight at the Survivor Series, and have gained Paul Londons Cruiserweight Title. The Cabinet, are now in a position of power on Smackdown, with three of the four title belts in their possession.


Tazz:
What a match Cole. What a match. Paul London put his heart and soul into this match, coming back from him and Chris Harris facing four guys, then, he alone, almost caused the upset, after eliminating Jamie Noble, and came inches from victory.


Michael Cole:
Paul Londons glorious six month reign as the Cruiserweight Champion is over, ending tonight at the Survivor Series, and thinking about it Tazz, London must be the first man to lose the Cruiserweight Title, after being beaten by a non- cruiserweight.


Tazz:
I for one cant think of anyone else that has happened to Cole.


In the ring, we see the referee help Paul London to his feet. The courageous former Cruiserweight champion is given a standing ovation, as we see AMW and Chris Jericho make their way to the ring, clapping London for his efforts. They get into the ring, and give London a consolation hug, with London apologising for losing, to which Jericho and AMW are seen telling him he has nothing to apologise for. The three men hold Londons arms in the air, getting another rousing ovation from the fans.


Michael Cole:
What an amazing show of respect for Paul London tonight. But Tazz, we know that as a result of this match, there will be no rematches, not for London, not for Jericho and not AMW. This tonight was the final encounter, and once again, The Cabinet has come out on top.


Tazz:
That’s a tough break Cole, because after a scintillating performance like that, Paul London deserves a shot at Jamie Noble.


Preview Video Airs for the next WWE Pay Per View on December 4th in Boston, Armageddon, which will be a Raw Brand Production.


Backstage, Mick Foley is sat in the locker room, taping his wrists, in preparation for tonight’s main event.


Jim Ross:
Indeed, next month, Raw presents Armageddon, but who will be the Raw General Manager by then?? We’ll know by the end of this night, as Mick Foley leads his four partners into War Games, to face off against Ric Flair, and his band of men, desperate to take control of Raw.


The Coach:
I’m just taking a look at that mammoth structure J.R, it is a sight to see, and this arena will explode when the cage lowers around the ring later tonight.


Jim Ross:
And right now, as promised, tonight we would have a new Wrestle Mania preview video, and folks, here it is…


*****

A green screen then appears, with the writing “The following preview is to advertise the PPV event, WWE WrestleMania XXII. The event advertised is to take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, on March 26th 2006”…

***NOTE*** Originally, the part of Chavo Guerrero was to be played by Eddie Guerrero.


The video opens, in a busy, buzzing Casino, with a number of people on the fruit machines, roulette tables, poker tables, craps and more, before we cut to the Blackjack Table.


First, we see Carlito sat down, sweating profusely, with very little chips … next we see Rob Van Dam looking extremely angry, with very little chips too … then, we see JBL, wiping sweat from his brow, with no chips. He panics, and pulls his Rolex watch off, throwing it onto the table to bet with. Finally, the camera moves to Chavo Guerrero, who sits back, relaxing, with a HUGE stack of chips.

The dealer, Linda McMahon, deals out cards to each man again. Carlito shouts out for another card, which he is dealt. Carlito looks at it, and screws up his face.

He gets up, and grabs his apple, taking a bite, and spits it on the table.

Carlito:
I’m bust … again. Das not cool.


Carlito gives up, having no chips left, and leaves the table. RVD nods for another card, which he gets. He nods again, getting another card. Van Dam holds his hand up, signalling his sticks.


Now, we go back to JBL, who is dripping with sweat, and asks for another card, which he gets, and asks to stick.

Both men, and Linda now turn their attention to Chavo.

Linda McMahon:
You want another card??


Chavo looks up, with a little impish grin, before speaking.


Chavo Guerrero:
Nope, I got twenty one.


RVD kicks the table, whilst JBL bangs his head off it, losing everything he has.


Linda McMahon:
You must be a natural. That’s seventeen games in a row you’ve got a twenty one from the first two cards.


Chavo Guerrero:
Yeah, my family have studied this game for years.


RVD pushes the rest of his chips to the middle of the table for the next hand, whilst JBL throws a set of keys into the middle of the table.


John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield:
That’s my house keys. It’s all I’ve got left.


Linda raises her eyebrow, and deals out the cards again. RVD is first to respond, and he signals for another card … and another … then gets to his feet, picks up his glass, and throws it across the Casino.


The camera follows the glass … which sails across the casino, and smashes onto the stage, where Chris Jericho, and Fozzy are set to perform.

Chris Jericho:
HEY!!! We haven’t even started our performance yet!!! Judge us when we finish ass clown!!!


Back to the blackjack table, we see Bill Alfonso arrive on the scene, and tries to calm RVD, leading him away from the table, with Van Dam out of chips.


JBL again wipes his face, with his hair all out of place, fretting over losing everything.

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield:
Hit me.


Linda deals JBL another card. JBL grins, and lets out a loud laugh.


John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield:
Ha ha. Try and beat that. TWENTY!!!


JBL lets out a sigh of relief, as Chavo smiles, and turns his cards over.


Chavo Guerrero:
Well, well, well. Look at that. Twenty One!!!


JBL’s face drops in shock. He slowly rises up from the table, and we see he isn’t wearing any trousers, and has no shoes. He walks away from the table, in a state of shock.


Chavo grabs a handful of chips, and throws them up in the air, celebrating all his winnings. He then straightens his jacket, and gets up from the table, grabbing a pair of shoes, trousers, the watch, and keys, (all JBLs) before walking towards the position where he can get his chips changed into money. He points to the table he was at, and asks for the cash. The man behind the desk then speaks.


Casino Clerk:
And your name please??


Chavo Guerrero:
My name?? Ummm… John … err … Smith.


Casino Clerk:
John Smith?? Your name is John Smith??


Chavo Guerrero:
That’s me, regular old John Smith.


A bunch of Raw and Smackdown stars then pass by (Booker T, Goldust, Hardcore Holly, Paul London, William Regal, Lance Storm, Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin) with each one passing by saying ‘Hey Chavo’


Guerrero stands still, frozen from fear as the clerk starts to look suspicious. Chavo tries to cover it up with a laugh, and backs up a little, with a small device falling down his trouser and onto the floor. A security guard notices, and quickly picks it up, recognizing the object right away.

Security Guard:
This guy has been counting cards. He’s been cheating!!!


The camera instantly switches across the casino, with JBL looking up.


John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield:
Cheating!!??


Camera cuts to Carlito, who spits his apple in defiance.


Camera cuts to RVD, who looks ready to blast out an expletive, before we cut back to Chavo.

Chavo Guerrero:
Uh oh.


JBL, RVD, Carlito, and a bunch of extras start to run across the casino, to chase Chavo. Chavo sees them coming, and he quickly pokes the security guard in the eye, before throwing JBLs shoes in their direction to try and slow them down.


He runs towards the front exit, and sees security blocking the door. His eyes widen, before he looks around, then we see a light bulb flash above his head, and he quickly clutches his chest, pretending to faint. JBL, RVD and Carlito all close in on him, but the security fall for his act, and stops JBL etc from getting at him, telling them to give him space.

Chavo sits up, and waves at the three men, before jumping up, and running out the exit, pointing at JBL’s limo driver to look behind him, which he does, allowing Chavo to yank the key out of his hand, and jump into the limo.

Chavo quickly starts the vehicle, and speeds off, stealing Bradshaws limo, and getting away from the furious cheated other players.

The Wrestle Mania 22 logo flashes across the screen again, with the caption “Where Dreams Become Reality” flashing across the screen before we get the very last scene…


Chavo starts singing the old Los Guerreros theme song, as he drives off, singing and whistling, but what he doesn’t see, is that the fuel level is dangerously low, as the camera fades away, ending the video.

*****


Back to ringside…


Jim Ross:
What a hoot. Folks, we’ll have another new Wrestle Mania preview video at the Royal Rumble, but now, it’s time to get serious again…


**Stand Back, There’s a Hurricane Coming Through** Hurricane enters the arena, not looking too confident, knowing he’ll have to run through the other seven men to become Hardcore Champion again.

Howard Finkel:
The following contest, is an eight man gauntlet, for the WWE Hardcore Championship!!! Introducing first, weighing 218 pounds … The Hurricane!!!


Jim Ross:
The Hurricane had a great run as Hardcore Champion throughout the summer, but that was brought crashing down, on October 17th, when Rhyno stepped up, and took the title from him. Hurricane must beat seven men in a row here tonight in order to hold the title again.


The Coach:
Could be way too much to ask for The Hurricane. He’ll need to call on all his hurri powers this evening J.R.


**Worlds Strongest Man** Mark Henry enters the arena, to little reaction, carrying a trash can full of weapons


Howard Finkel:
And, weighing 305 pounds, the Worlds Strongest Man, Mark Henry!!!


Jim Ross:
He’s mean, he’s nasty, and he’s one bad, bad man. Mark Henry could well be a contender tonight.


The Coach:
The Hurricane has his work cut out right from the start J.R.


WWE Hardcore Championship;
8 Man Gauntlet:

Hurricane vs. Rhyno vs. Tyson Tomko vs. Booker T vs. Goldust vs. Stevie Richards vs. Mark Henry vs. A-Train


Mark Henry slides into the ring, and looks to run at Hurricane, but Hurricane puts him off, doing his Hurri-pose, shouting ‘WASSUP WID DAT’. Henry jumps back, as Hurricane spins around, still doing his Hurri-pose, whilst Henry picks up the trashcan lid, and smashes it against the skull of Hurricane!!! He covers, 1...2...Kick Out!!! Mark Henry stares a hole through the official, and reaches into the trash can, pulling out a broom. He stands over Hurricane, and shows his power, breaking the broom over his knee (surprisingly not injuring himself, like Mark Henry would be expected to :P)

Henry smashes the broom across the back of Hurricane, rolls him over, and hooks the leg, 1...2...Kick Out. Hurricane just gets a shoulder up. Mark Henry gets back up, looking ready to explode, and bounces off the ropes, splashing his body weight onto The Hurricane. He covers again, 1...2...Kick Out!!! The Worlds Strongest Man tugs at his beads, before dragging The Hurricane up by the mask, launching him across the ring to the corner. He runs in after, looking for a splash, and squashes The superhero. Hurricane staggers out, and gets clotheslined down by Henry. Henry empties the trash can, and places it onto his smaller opponent, before running off the ropes, and goes for a leg drop, but at the last second, The Hurricane moves, leaving mark Henry nothing to hit, except the trash can!!!
Hurricane reaches his feet, and grabs a stop sign, waiting for Henry to get back up, and hits him with it, knocking Henry onto one knee. The Hurricane climbs to the top rope, and flies through the air, looking for a cross body, but Mark Henry moves out of the way, and Hurricane hit’s the referee!!! Hurricane puts his hands to his mouth, in shock after hitting the referee. He runs off the ropes, and leaps into the air aiming for Mark Henry, but this time, Henry catches him, and hit’s the Worlds Strongest Slam onto a trash can!!!!! He hooks the leg … NO REFEREE!!!
Henry looks frustrated with the referee, and picks Hurricane up, into position for a press slam, and chucks Hurricane over the top rope, sending him to the outside, onto the mats. The fans gasp, as Hurricane takes a nasty landing on the outside from the move. Henry follows out, whilst The Hurricane somehow tries to pull himself back up on the barricade. Mark Henry kicks the steps over, and picks up the larger, bottom steps, picking them up over his head, but Hurricane quickly takes a cup of coffee from a fan, and throws it into the face of Mark Henry, with Henry staggering, slipping the steps, and they crush him down. Hurricane lies on top of the steps, with Mark Henry down, as the referee recovers to make the count…

Eliminated - Mark Henry by Hurricane @ 02:25


**Steam Train** A-Train sprints to the ring immediately, looking to take advantage of a weakened Hurricane


Jim Ross:
From big and bad, to bigger and badder. They don’t come any tougher for Hurricane than the A-Train.


The Coach:
This shouldn’t take long.


A-Train runs around ringside, knocking Hurricane down with a running clothesline. He rolls Hurricane back in, and follows himself, picking up a lead pipe. He looks to swing at Hurricane, but as he does, Hurricane ducks, and scores with a number of kicks to the legs of A-Train, then bounces off the ropes, only to eat a big running boot from Train. A-Train sets the trash can in the centre of the ring, before picking Hurricane up, grabbing him by the neck, and scoring with the Baldo Bomb!!! He hooks the leg …

**Shattered Dreams** Goldust enters, but slowly walks to the ring, not looking entirely confident of a victory.


Jim Ross:
Former Hardcore Champion here Coach. Goldust mightn’t be as big as A-Train, but he’s a lot more weird, and sometimes, that’ll work in an environment like this.


The Coach:
As you would say, Goldust is crazier than a pet coon.


Goldust slowly slides into the ring, and stands across from A-Train, who takes a look at the freaky opponent, before walking towards him, but Goldust puts his hand out, and blows gold dust into the face of A-Train. Train staggers around, blinded by the dust, whilst Goldust rolls him up, 1...2...Kick Out!!! A-Train staggers into the corner, trying to get the dust out of his eyes, whilst Goldust follows in, scoring with an uppercut, and a second, and a third. He picks up a plant pot from the empty trash can, and without hesitation, or thought, he smashes the pot over the head of A-Train.

Train looks set to flop down, but Goldust holds him up, and places his legs over the ropes, signalling for the kick to the nuts, known as Shattered Dreams. He lines it up, and runs to the corner, connecting with the nut shot. A-Train staggers around the ring, holding onto the ropes to stay up. Goldust sets the stop sign in the middle of the ring, and grabs A-Train from behind, hooking him up, nailing the Curtain Call!!! Goldust hooks the leg … 1...2...KICK OUT!!!
The fans seem genuinely shocked by the kick out, whilst Goldust slides outside the ring, and picks up the ring bell. He gets back in, and comes after A-Train again, but this time, Train scores with a deliberate low blow, dropping Goldust onto his knees. A-Train recovers from the attack by Goldust, and picks up the ring bell, waiting for his opponent to get up. Goldust struggles up, and into the path of the big A-Train, who places the bell across his throat, and slams Goldy down, with the gold one rolling around, holding his throat from the dangerous move just performed. A-Train scoops Goldust up, and gets him in position, eventually hitting the Train Wreck. He hooks the leg …

**Can You Dig It … SUCKA** Booker T enters to a nice reaction from the fans, pumping them up, setting off his pyro, before pointing towards the ring at A-Train, who looks ready for The Book. Booker checks on Goldust who is helped to the back, before sliding into the ring.


Jim Ross:
Booker T will be out for revenge here Coach, but right now, A-Train looks hard to beat.


The Coach:
Two definite contenders here J.R. Both men have held some serious gold in the past, and they both want that Hardcore title tonight.


Booker and A-Train go punch for punch in the centre of the ring, with Booker firing up, eventually knocking Train out of the ring. Booker follows, and they continue to fight on the outside, with Booker opening up on Train, until he gets caught with a knee to the gut. A-Train then throws Booker over the barricade, and into the crowd, with A-Train following in.

The two men trade blows through the crowd, with Booker striking the bigger man with a number of chops, lighting up the hairy chest, before grabbing a cup from a fan, and hitting A-Train over the head with it. Booker continues to be the aggressor, and bangs A-Trains head off a fans chair, as the two men get back to the front row, and back over the barricade. Booker whips A-Train into the ring post, and knocks him down with the Axe Kick, before getting a cover, 1...2...Kick Out.
Booker rolls off, and looks under the apron, eventually pulling a 2x4 from under the apron. Booker watches as A-Train tries to get back up, but The Book stops him, and breaks the wood over his opponents enormous back. A-Train yells out in pain, whilst Booker hit’s a DDT, hooking the leg, 1...2...KICK OUT.
A-Train manages to stay in the match, with Booker rolling the opponent back inside the ring. He kicks Train in the mid section, then bounces off the ropes, looking to hit the Scissors Kick, but as he comes back off the ropes, A-Train picks up the stop sign from earlier, and waffles Booker with it. Train hooks the far leg, 1...2...KICK OUT!!! Booker rolls to the ropes, with A-Train following in, grabbing Booker Ts legs, and slingshots his throat into the ropes.
Booker T grabs his throat, coughing from the choke, as A-Train rolls to the outside, grabbing a steel chair. He slides back in, and lines up the chair shot, with Booker struggling back to his feet. Train swings the chair, but Booker T ducks. A-Train turns back around, and walks right into The Bookend!!! He gets the cover, …

**I’ll Show You … You’ll see** Stevie Richards runs to the ring, carrying a Singapore Cane, looking like he’s just been taking cocaine, totally out of the zone.


Jim Ross:
Stevie Richards sure knows Hardcore, and he knows how to use a Singapore cane.


The Coach:
I would say it’s about to get ugly, but Stevie is already out here!!!


Stevie goes right to work on Booker, giving him no time to recuperate, smashing the Singapore Cane across the back, and to the legs, before opening up on the front too. Richards whips Booker off the ropes, and as he comes back, the demented Stevie whacks Booker with the Cane to the face. He gets a lateral press, 1...2...Kick Out!!!!

Richards roars in frustration, before choking Booker, then he gets back to his feet. Richards looks around the arena, and cracks the Cane across Bookers back once again. Richards pounds Booker, throwing three overhand chops, before whipping The Book to the corner. Stevie picks up a lead pipe which Mark Henry brought to the ring, and runs at Booker, but The Book leaps up, and cradles out of the corner, getting the pin…

**Problem Solver** Tyson Tomko runs to the ring, trying to capitalize on a worn down Booker T.


Jim Ross:
Tyson Tomko has earned himself a late spot in this match, which could have a positive effect for him.


The Coach:
We know he’s learned well from Captain Charisma, but how well has he learned?? We’re about to find out.


Tyson Tomko runs right into the ring, turning The Book inside out with a clothesline, drags him to centre ring, and hooks the leg, 1...2...Kick Out from Booker T. Tyson drags Booker T back up, and whips him to the corner, charging in after with a clothesline. Booker T staggers out, with Tomko scooping him up, and slams him onto the trash can, getting a cover, 1...2...Kick Out. The Problem Solver gets back up, and picks the trash can up too, he turns around, looking to hit Booker, but the former 5 Time WCW Champion ducks, and kicks the can into Tomko’s face instead. He hooks the near leg, 1...2...Shoulder up!!!

Booker backs Tomko into the corner, and strikes him with a number of chops, before whipping Tomko into the corner, then runs in after him, but Tomko charges out, and runs down Booker T with a clothesline. Tomko gets up, and walks to the corner, stomping his foot, signalling for a knock out boot, and runs at Booker, but Booker T ducks, then as Tomko misses, he trips over, and Booker T snatches the opportunity, and nails the Scissors Kick!!! He hooks the leg, …

**Man Beast** Rhyno drops the belt immediately, and sprints to the ring, seeing that Booker T is in a world of hurt in the ring.


Jim Ross:
Rhyno is the last man to enter, he is the hardcore Champion, and he has Booker T in a world of hurt!!!


The Coach:
Should be a short nights work for the man beast!!!


Rhyno sees Booker T struggling, after taking some major punishment in the last few minutes. Rhyno immediately goes for the Gore, but Booker T leapfrogs out of the way!!! Rhyno hit’s the ring post, and Booker rolls him up, 1...2...Kick Out from Rhyno. Booker looks to be hurting, as Rhyno rolls out, looking under the ring, and pulls out another trash can, with some weapons stored inside it too. He sets it onto the apron, and Booker T sees an opportunity to attack, and he baseball slides the trash can into Rhyno. Booker follows out, and bounces Rhynos head off the Smackdown announce table, but Rhyno elbows back, and whips Booker into the steel steps. He pulls a steel tray out of the trash can, and dents it over Bookers head, then hit’s a spine buster onto the mats, hooking the leg immediately, 1...2...Kick Out!!!

Rhyno gets back to his feet, and sets up the steel steps for a flying Gore, looking to take drastic measures in order to end the match. Rhyno sets the steps up, and watches as Booker gets back to his feet. Rhyno runs, but he is caught by Booker with a kick just before nailing the move, and follows up with a face buster onto the steps.. He gets a cover, 1...2...two count only.
Booker T brings Rhyno back into the ring, and Booker brings a chair with him, but before he can do any damage, Rhyno flattens him with a baking tray. Rhyno gets back up, and whips The Book to the corner with authority, with Bookers neck snapping back in the corner, and he falls onto the mat. Rhyno sit’s the chair up, and then whips Booker off the ropes, before he hit’s a flapjack through it. Rhyno then sets Bookers head onto the middle ropes and goes for a knee to the head, but as he bounces off the opposite side, Booker T moves and leaves Rhyno caught in the ropes, in a world of hurt.
Booker now, picks up the chair and levels a defenceless Rhyno with a stiff shot to the head. Rhyno falls out through the ropes, and is now lying on the ring apron. Rhyno crawls to the corner to try and pull himself up but is met by a flying chair, which Booker T launches across the ring at him. Booker looks around the arena, and gets a nice ovation, as we see Rhyno is now busted open. Booker whips Rhyno off the ropes, and hit’s a spine buster onto the trash can, then hooks the leg, 1...2...Kick Out from the Champion.
The Challenger, takes a few deep breaths, and gets back up, pounding the back of Rhyno, as the champion gets to his feet. Booker T whips Rhyno off the ropes, and shoots him back down with a reverse elbow. Booker grabs the trash can, and places it in the centre of the ring. He whips Rhyno off the ropes, and hit’s a drop toe hold onto the trash can, face first. Rhyno rolls around, as Booker T runs off the ropes, and drops a knee to the face, getting another cover on the Man Beast, 1...2...Kick Out!!!!
Booker T pulls Rhyno back up, and grabs a stop sign too, then whips Rhyno off the ropes, smashing the stop sign across the face, knocking Rhyno back down to the mat, sprawling. Booker drops to a knee, and shakes his hair, head and hand, before doing the infamous Spin-a-roonie, to a magnificent pop. Booker hops back up, and jumps around … AND GETS GORED!!!!! Rhyno out of nowhere scores with the Gore, and hooks the leg …

Eliminated - Booker T by Rhyno @ 10:13

Winner: Rhyno


Jim Ross:
Impressive victory for Rhyno, retaining the Hardcore title, but you gotta say Coach, Booker T stepped it up tonight, and came so close.

The Coach:
But he wasn’t good enough J.R. Rhyno, The Man Beast is a force to be reckoned with as Hardcore Champion, and as a legitimate threat to anybody on the Raw roster.


Jim Ross:
Still to come from Raw though, the first ever WWE promoted War Games match. Team Foley faces Team Flair, but there is only one GM spot on Raw, and you and I know Coach, Raw just isn’t big enough for both Ric Flair and Mick Foley.


The Coach:
That’s true J.R, but Raw isn’t big enough for Mick Foley and a fly, if you know what I mean.


Cut backstage to the Smackdown General Managers office, where Kurt Angle enters…


Bret Hart:
What do you want??


Kurt Angle:
I think you know what I want.


Bret Hart:
Oh yeah, and whats that Kurt?? You finally gonna own up to playing games with me lately?? Getting guys to call me a chicken for no reason, is that it??


Kurt Angle:
(Plays innocent)
No idea what you’re talking about old man. What I came here for was an assurance.

Bret Hart:
An assurance??


Kurt Angle:
Yeah, I want you to assure me, that I wont get screwed out of my WWE Title here tonight. I know this events history with screw jobs to champions, and I don’t want to follow that way.


Bret Hart:
Are you taking the mick??


Kurt Angle:
No Bret. I’m deadly serious. I don’t want to get screwed here tonight, then live a bitter life like you for the rest of my career, and the rest of my natural life.


Bret Hart:
Okay. Kurt, I assure you, that tonight, you wont be screwed out of the WWE Title.


Kurt Angle:
That’s all I wanted to hear. Because God forbid I end up like a washed up loser like you. Think about it Bret. You’re arguably the greatest wrestler ever. But the ONLY thing you’re remembered for is one night in Montreal in 1997.


Angle walks back to the door, and opens it, then turns around, back to Bret.


Kurt Angle:
It’s just a pity that you wont get in the ring again to give people something to remember you by, isn’t it Bret.


Angle leaves the room, as Bret thinks about what Angle said for a moment, snapping a pencil, before shaking his head, shrugging the comment off.


Cut to the Raw Womens locker room…

We see the majority of the women from the Battle Royal earlier, bar Trish, Shaniqua and Victoria, all getting dressed, and some chatting to each other, when Victoria storms into the room, looking ready to snap.


Nidia:
Hey, you okay Victoria??


Victoria:
Shut up and leave me alone!!


Lita:
C’mon Nidia, leave her. She just cant take a defeat.


Lita motions for Nidia to walk away from her, and they start chatting about going out somewhere later, as Victoria listens.


Victoria:
How can you crows even think about going out later?? You all lost tonight … WE all lost tonight. Do none of you care??


Lita:
Relax Victoria. It’s not like that’s the last ever title shot you’ll get.


Victoria:
I don’t like to lose Lita. I’m sick of losing.


Gail Kim:
Well maybe you should think of quitting then.


Most of the girls laugh, as Gail turns away, folding up some clothes. Suddenly, Victoria grabs Gail by the hair, and throws her face into a locker!!!


Victoria:
Do you like that?? Do you like that, pretty girl?? What will you do when I take away your looks.


Victoria looks set to smash the locker into the face of Gail Kim, when the other women step in, and stop Victoria. Victoria pushes Stacey away, grabs Nidia by the face, and throws her down, before pushing past the rest, and storms out of the locker room, whilst a couple of them tend to Gail Kim.


Back to ringside…


Michael Cole:
Well Tazz, coming up now, there will be no cat fighting here, as ten men battle in classic Survivor Series combat.


Tazz:
For nine of those guys you’re right, but I think Rico is more of a cat fighter. Y’know, he’s a little more feminine.


Michael Cole:
Trust me Tazz, Rico can go with the best of them.


Tazz:
(Laughing)
You don’t know just how bad that sounded Cole.

Michael Cole:
I do now.


**It Wasn’t My Fault** Gene Snitsky enters the ring to a nice amount of heat, but nothing spectacular. He pounds his chest, before letting out a roar, and walks to the ring, his face all screwed up.


Tony Chimel:
The following contest, is an ten man, classic survivor series elimination match. Introducing first, representing Team Goldberg, from Nesquehoning, Pennsylvania, weighing 298 pounds, Gene Snitsky.


Michael Cole:
This marks Gene Snitskys Pay Per View debut here in the WWE, and what an event, what a match to debut in.

Tazz:
Big night for Snitsky. He’s made a heck of a mark here in his short time in the WWE, breaking Torrie Wilsons neck, which wasn’t his fault by the way, he also holds a victory over The Rock, albeit, thanks to Goldberg.


**Whatever** Chris Benoit enters the arena to an excellent reaction from the fans. He raises his arms, before shaking his head side to side, focusing his attention on the ring

Tony Chimel:
And, representing Team Bring It, residing in Atlanta, Georgia, weighing 229 pounds, Chris Bennnnoit!!!


Michael Cole:
Last month, Chris Benoit was this close, to becoming WWE Champion for the first time. But in the end, on that night, it just wasn’t enough. This month marks, Benoits twentieth year, in the business, and I honestly hope, it’s the beginning of another twenty.

Tazz:
Benoit wont want to disappoint here tonight.


**Test … Sirens** Big Poppa Pump, and Test enter the arena to little reaction. Both pump up their muscles, and pose, before walking to the ring, sliding in, and nodding towards Gene.

Tony Chimel:
Representing Team Goldberg, weighing a combined weight of 563 pounds, the team of Test, and Big Poppa Pump, Scott Steiner.


Michael Cole:
Its been a while since Test and Steiner made an appearance on Pay Per View, but they have been hand picked by Goldberg to be part of his five man team, and I gotta admit, on size alone, these two are pretty good choices.

Tazz:
Definitely. Goldberg wanted to put together a team of power houses, and that’s exactly what he’s got.


**APA … You Look So Good remix** Rico enters the arena to a huge laugh from the fans, dressed as a fairy. Simmons walks down the whole way, trying to ignore Rico, shaking his head, wanting to get on with the match. Meanwhile, Rico throws magic dust into the crowd, blowing kisses to the fans.

Tony Chimel:
And representing Team Bring It, weighing a combined weight of 521 pounds, The A.F.A!!!


Michael Cole:
Without doubt, Rico and Simmons make up the most bizarre team in WWE history, but they are arguably the most popular on Smackdown today, and perhaps in the WWE period.

Tazz:
Pretty unique team to say the least. Rico can cause the best of them problems with his style, and Simmons wont bring the fight, he’ll go looking for it.


**Generic Music** Matt Morgan enters the arena looking extremely confident for the match. He stretches his arms on the way to the ring, giving death stares to some fans, before getting into the ring, pounding knuckles with his team mates.

Tony Chimel:
Representing Team Goldberg, weighing 314 pounds, Matt Morgan!!!


Michael Cole:
He’s a former Intercontinental and Hardcore Champion on Raw, but since coming to Smackdown, Matt Morgan has been caught in a rut. Can tonight be the beginning of a resurgence for the near seven foot monster??

Tazz:
All it takes is one big win. If Morgan can eliminate someone like Austin, Benoit or Rock, he’ll be a player once again.


**Glass Shatters** The arena pops big time for the Rattlesnake, as Austin confidently walks down the aisle, pointing to his opponents, and giving a bird. He steps inside, and shows no fear, pushing past the heels, and going to the top rope, saluting his fans. He drops down, and pushes past again, before proceeding to each of the other turnbuckles.

Tony Chimel:
From Victoria, Texas, weighing 256 pounds, Stone Cold, Steve Austin!!!


Michael Cole:
Listen to the ovation, for the Texas Rattlesnake, Steve Austin, with the Verizon Wireless Arena, going nuts for Austin.

Tazz:
I can barely hear myself think Cole.


**Goldbergs March** Goldberg enters the arena to his usual intro, with pyro etc, before charging towards the ring.

Tony Chimel:
And, the leader of Team Goldberg, from Atlanta, Georgia, weighing 285 pounds, GOLDBERG!!!


Michael Cole:
Goldberg is desperate for revenge, after being cost the WWE Title by The Rock at Summer Slam, cost a Chain Match at Clash of the Champions, and of course, the loss last month at Nemesis.

Tazz:
He better not lose his cool, or his team will be in real trouble, Cole.


Goldberg slides inside, immediately clashing heads with Austin. The two men exchange words, and look set to come to blows, until…

**IF YA SMELL** The Rock bounds out from behind the curtain, and sprints down the aisle, sliding into the ring, before beginning a major ten man brawl!!!


10 Man Survivor Series Elimination Match;

Team Goldberg
-----vs.----- Team Bring It

Goldberg
--The Rock

Gene Snitsky
--‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin

Matt Morgan
--Chris Benoit

Test
--Ron Simmons

Scott Steiner
--Rico

The ten men brawl, with the action spilling to the outside with everyone, except for The Rock and Goldberg, who are left alone in the ring, thus becoming the two legal men to start the match. Rock backs Goldberg into the corner with a fist full of right hands, unloading on his long term enemy, with Goldberg sucking the punishment up, before picking his spot to fight back. He clocks Rock with a big right, and begins to fight out of the corner, backing Rock away, with the fans giving Goldberg heat, which results in The Rock firing back, with the two men going shot for shot in the centre of the ring.

Rock looks to have the upper hand, until Goldberg drives his knee into the mid section of the Great One, following up with a whip to the corner. Goldberg runs in after him, but Rock comes steaming out of the corner, running down Goldberg with a flying clothesline. The Rock looks to the apron, with the action now firmly calmed down, and everyone back on the apron, and he makes a tag to a fairly excited Rico.
Rico prances into the ring, and rubs the face of Goldberg, looking set to orgasm from just touching the facial hair, which obviously doesn’t make Goldberg very happy, and as a result he pushes Rico away, and follows up with a running shoulder block, then tags in big Matt Morgan.
Morgan climbs over the top rope, into the ring, and backs The flamboyant Rico into the ropes, whipping him off, and scoring with a biel. Morgan stands over Rico, and poses, showing off his muscles, before dropping a knee, and hooking the leg, 1...2...Kick Out!! Rico tries to crawl to his corner, but Morgan drags him back, and drops an elbow to the spine. Matt picks Rico up, and applies a headlock, as he tags in Gene Snitsky, who gets a fair amount of heat from the fans. Gene kicks Rico in the chest, as Morgan lets go of the headlock, and knocks Rico down with a clothesline. Snitsky runs off the ropes, and comes back for another clothesline, knocking Rico down again. Rico rolls to the corner, trying to get away for a few moments, but Snitsky follows in after him, only to be suckered with a kick from Rico. Rico comically pulls Gene down by the hair from his goatee, and quickly makes a tag out of the ring, to Ron Simmons.
Simmons drives Snitsky to the corner, delivering sharp shoulders to the gut, taking the wind from Gene, before whipping him into the ropes, and scoring with a reverse elbow, knocking Snitsky down. Lateral press, 1...2...Kick Out!!! Gene rolls over to his side, but Simmons doesn’t let him get away, and pulls Snitsky up by the hair, driving him to the corner again, scoring with some major shoulders to the gut. He steps back, before hitting Snitsky in the face with a reverse elbow. Snitsky staggers around the ring, as Ron Simmons tags in Chris Benoit, to a nice reaction from the Verizon Wireless Arena.
Benoit drags Snitsky to the corner, and without hesitation, strikes with a hard chop … and another … and a third … a fourth … and a fifth, with Snitsky pushing Benoit away to try and get away. He clutches his chest in pain, but cant get to his teams corner, with Benoit taking him down with a drop toe hold. He then tries to apply the cross face, but Gene manages to scramble free, and quickly tags in Scott Steiner, who gets a massive reaction of heat from the fans for the big bad booty daddy.
Steiner slowly enters, knowing the threat that Benoit possesses. Both men circle the ring, and lock up. They struggle around the ring, with neither getting an advantage, and eventually, they are forced to break in the corner. They look across the ring at each other, with Benoit staring intensely across whilst Steiner flexes his arms, kissing his muscles. Again, they circle, before locking up. This time, Benoit backs Steiner into his corner, and chops Freakzilla, before tagging in The Rock to a huge reaction from the fans.
The Rock punches Steiner, before whipping him into the ropes, and knocking him down with a clothesline. He covers, 1...2...Kick Out. Rock stomps on the back of Scott Steiner, and eventually picks him up, whipping him into the ropes again, going for a clothesline again, only for Steiner to duck, and come back with a flying shoulder block to The Great One. Steiner gets to his feet first, and drags Rock up, throwing a few right hands, which rock The Rock a little. He whips him into the ropes, and goes for a spine buster, but Rock fights out for a Sunset Flip, only for Steiner to keep his balance, and drops his knees onto the Peoples Champion for a cover, 1...2...Kick Out!!!
Steiner follows up with a belly to belly suplex, then backs into the ropes, but Test makes a blind tag, much to Steiners dismay. Test begins to stomp The Rock, then drops down, and chokes The Great One, breaking at the count of four. Test gets up, and stomps the face of The Rock, before dropping an elbow, 1...2...Kick Out!! Test reaches his feet again, and taunts the opposing stars, before reaching down to pick The Rock up, but is taken by surprise by Rock, who cradles Test, 1...2...Kick Out!!! Test is furious, and runs at The Rock, but is caught with a kick to the gut, followed by a DDT. In The Rocks corner, all four men hold their hands out, wanting the tag, to get a piece of Test. Rock makes the tag to Austin, which gets a massive cheer. Austin enters, with a grin on his face, getting a piece of the cocky Test.
Test is on his knees and sees Austin bearing down, smiling. Test tries to back away, and beg off, but the Rattlesnake doesn’t buy it, and kicks him in the face, knocking him down. Austin picks Test up, and whips him into the corner, with enough velocity to make Test bounce out, straight into Austin, who gets Test up, and hit’s an Atomic Drop … and holds on for a second … third … fourth … fifth … sixth … seventh … eighth … ninth, and finally a tenth. Test drops down onto his knees, before rolling around the canvas, feeling the effects of the atomic drops, courtesy of Austin.
Austin stands in the centre of the ring, laughing, as Test continues to roll around in agony. Austin eventually goes back after him, and begins to slap him around the head. Stone Cold picks Test up, and whips him into the ropes, but misses with a clothesline, and Test quickly dives to his corner, and tags in Matt Morgan.
Morgan goes to lock up with Austin, but Austin catches him with a kick to the gut, and whips him to his teams corner, making a tag to Rico.
Rico leaps in, and mounts the corner, rubbing his crotch in Morgans face, before opening up with a number of punches, but eventually stops, and begins to caress the hair of the seven footer, which allows Morgan to recover, and he charges out of the corner, before dumping Rico down, face first. He quickly looks to make a tag, with none of his partners looking terribly keen to make it, although Goldberg eventually accepts, allowing Morgan to get out of the ring.
Bill Goldberg enters, and stalks Rico, but stops, as Rico turns around, having popped open his shirt, showing off his nipples. Rico prances around the ring, asking Goldberg to lick his nipple, with Goldberg looking freaked out. On the apron, Rock, Austin and Benoit all look at Simmons, who has his head down in shame of his tag team partner.
Gene Snitsky has had enough, and he gets in the ring, and runs at Rico, but gets caught with a martial arts kick, before Rico hip tosses Snitsky over the top rope, with Gene landing on the apron. Rico runs to kiss him, but Snitsky jumps off the apron before he can. Rico then turns around, but gets flattened WITH A SPEAR!!!!! Goldberg scores, and hooks the leg, not bothering with the Jackhammer,

Eliminated: Rico by Goldberg @ 05:34


Ron Simmons enters, and clubs the back of Goldberg, trying to get revenge for the elimination of his partner. Simmons goes for a whip to the opposite corner, but Goldberg reverses, and sends Ron instead. He then charges at him, but Simmons moves out of the way from him, and nails a shoulder block, followed by a clothesline, which sends Goldberg to the outside.

Goldberg is irate with being out classed by Simmons, and Steiner notices this, then tries to calm things down. They talk on the outside, and Simmons decides to take advantage and surprisingly hit’s a baseball slide to both men, with Steiner getting the brunt of the slide. Goldberg is now even angrier.
The angry Goldberg immediately gets back in, but is met with a number of stiff kicks to the body from Simmons. Simmons bounces off the ropes, and shoulders Goldberg, runs off the ropes, and follows up with another. He then goes for a bulldog, but Goldberg counters, and throws him into the corner. Goldberg then goes for a German suplex, but Simmons rolls through, and tags in Austin.
Austin knocks down Bill with a right hand, then knocks Test off the apron, before elbowing Snitsky and Morgan off too. He hit’s a front slam on Goldberg, and tags in The Rock. Meanwhile, the other four team Goldberg members are being restrained on the apron by the referee, and this allows The Rock and Austin to hit a double atomic drop. Goldberg rolls around in agony from the move, and tries to tag out, but The Rock drags him back to the centre of the ring, then drops an elbow.
Rock then picks Goldberg up, and whips him to the corner, and connects with a big splash. Goldberg staggers out, and is met with a right hand from Rock, and another, and another, and a fourth, before Rock leans back, spits on his hand, and nails Goldberg, knocking Bill back down.
The Rock picks Goldberg up, and goes for a suplex, but Goldberg holds onto a rope, stopping the move. Rock then breaks, and is met with a rake to the eyes by Goldberg, who quickly tags out to Matt Morgan. Morgan enters the ring, and knocks Rock down with a clothesline, before bouncing off the ropes, and dropping a knee. He then chokes The Rock on the ground, and eventually breaks, before dragging him to the corner, and tagging in Steiner.
Steiner pounds Rock in the corner, then goes for a ten punch, but after six, The Great One moves, and flapjacks Big Poppa Pump into the top turnbuckle. BPP staggers around the ring, as does The Rock. Rock looks to make it to his corner, but Goldberg and Gene Snitsky stop him, hitting a double chop block, taking him down.
This infuriates Benoit, Austin and Simmons, who try to intervene, but are held back by the referee. Meanwhile, Steiner is helped up by Matt Morgan, and he soon takes control on Rock once again. He hit’s a few elbows to the back, then picks The Rock up, and goes for a Belly to Belly, but Rock headbutts his way out of the equation, and Steiner staggers, and gets knocked down by a clothesline from The Rock, who looks to be firing up.
The Rock whips Steiner into the corner, then hit’s a clothesline to him, making Steiner stagger out, and Rock follows up with a DDT, knocking Big Poppa Pump to the mat. He then bounces off the ropes, and goes for an elbow, but Steiner rolls out of the way, then kicks Rock in the back, before he bounces off the ropes, and hit’s a short diving clothesline to the face of the seated opponent. Big Poppa Pump then starts to get cocky, slapping Rock, then does press ups, making fun of the Rock as he goes along. Steiner stops, and slaps Rock twice, but as he tries to slap him a third time, Rock catches the arm, and twists it, making Steiner yell out in agony.
Rock gets back up, and whips him off the ropes, hitting a Samoan Drop on his opponent. The Rock finally makes a tag, this time to Ron Simmons. Simmons enters, all guns blazing, knocking Steiner down, and again, before hitting Goldberg with a clothesline, but Test comes from behind, and knocks down Simmons. This leads for Benoit to get involved, and he takes down Test with a running forearm. Hardy pounds on Test, but Snitsky pulls him off by the hair, and the match has officially broken down into a nine man brawl.
Steiner manages to tag in Snitsky, as Rock takes Goldberg to the outside, and Austin has his hands full with Test, whilst Benoit takes on Morgan, leaving Steiner and Snitsky to take on Simmons. Steiner bounces off the ropes, but gets caught, and flattened by a major Spinebuster courtesy of Ron Simmons, but as the former APA member gets back up, he has his head almost taken off with a big boot from Snitsky. He gets the hook of the leg…

Eliminated: Ron Simmons by Gene Snitsky @ 07:46


Team Goldberg now finds itself with a 5 on 3 advantage, having eliminated both members of the AFA in the early going. The two teams regroup, as Ron Simmons is led up the ramp, to the back. Goldberg waits in the ring, as Steve Austin looks to him, from the outside, and decides to go in himself. Austin steps into the ring, but we see Goldberg chicken out, and he tags in Matt Morgan.

Morgan cautiously gets in, with Austin pointing at Goldberg, signifying he wants a piece of the former WCW Champion. Matt Morgan then shouts to Austin to concentrate on him, and not Goldberg. Austin throws his hands up, as if to say, bring it on. Morgan rubs his face, then tries to take down Austin by the leg, but Stone Cold moves away before he can. Morgan tries to take the Rattlesnake by surprise, and runs at him, but Austin boots him in the gut, and sees a possible opening for the Stunner, but Matt pushes Austin into the ropes, and goes for a kick of his own, but Austin catches the leg, spins Morgan around, and knocks him down with a clothesline!!! He then drags Morgan to his teams corner, and tags The Rock back in.
Rock kicks Morgan in the corner, and begins to stomp the seven footer, before dragging him up, and nailing a few right hand shots, then whips him into the ropes, taking him down with an belly to belly throw. Rock tries to quickly stomp him, but Morgan spins out of the way. Morgan locks up with The Rock, and they struggle around the ring, but it’s The Great One that eventually wins the battle, taking Matt down with a snap mare. He tries to lock in a sleeper, but Morgan fights free, runs into the ropes, but is met with a right hand from The Peoples Champion!!!
The Great One pulls Morgan to Team Bring Its corner, and tags in Steve Austin again, who again, gets a tremendous ovation from the fans. Stone Cold stomps Matt in the corner, before stepping to the middle ropes, and begins teeing off on Morgan with the ten punches, with the fans chanting ‘WHAT’ to each punch. Austin hit’s the ten, and drops down off the ropes, with Matt Morgan flopping out of the corner, falling flat on his face, to a big pop.
Austin laughs, before tagging in Chris Benoit. Benoit backs Morgan into the corner, and opens up with a number of chops again, lighting up the chest of Matt once again. Matt Morgan in desperation, rakes the eyes of Chris Benoit to get away. He pounds Benoit in the corner, but Benoit strikes back with more chops, which Morgan stops, with a kick to the gut of The Wolverine. He whips Chris Benoit off the ropes, but misses with a clothesline, and Benoit grasps behind Morgan, using all his force to execute a release German Suplex!!!
Chris Benoit follows Morgan, and hooks the leg, 1...2...Kick Out!!! Benoit pulls Morgan closer to Team Bring It, and tags in The Rock. The Rock takes a few seconds to think about what he is going to do to Morgan, before stomping on the leg of his opponent. The Great One drags him to the centre of the ring, and drops three consecutive elbows to the point of the knee, before trying to apply the Sharp shooter, but as he turns, Morgan kicks him away with his free boot, and this time, does the smart thing, and tags in a team mate … Test.
Test bounds into the ring, coming after The Rock, but is immediately knocked down by The Rock, with a booming clothesline. He tries to get the pinfall, … 1...2...Kick Out!!! Rock hooks the leg again, 1...2...Kick Out. He covers again, 1...2...Kick Out!!! The Rock drags Test up, but Test fights back at The Rock, with shots to the ribs, forcing The Peoples Champion back. Test bounces off the ropes, and comes at Rock again, but The Rock meets him with a kick to the gut, sending Test down to one knee. Rock quickly goes for the Rock Bottom, but Test frantically elbows free, then scores with a clothesline.
Test drags The Rock to his teams corner, and tags in Snitsky. Gene gets in, and kicks The Rock in the corner, before whipping him to the Team Bring It corner, where Austin makes a blind tag, which Snitsky doesn’t spot. He runs in at the corner, and splashes The Rock, before dragging him out, and goes for the pump handle slam, but Austin takes him down with a clothesline to the back of the head.
Snitsky is knocked down, and falls to the outside, with Austin in hot pursuit, coming after him. He follows out, and the referee quickly instructs the Team Bring It and Goldberg members to stay in their corners. Austin charges Snitsky into the steel steps, before dropping him, chest first onto the barricade. Quickly, Austin rolls Snitsky back into the ring, and covers, 1...2...Kick Out. The Texas Rattlesnake has a wry smile, and drags Test up to his feet. Austin bounces off the ropes, and runs at Gene, but Gene side steps him, and quickly tags in Matt Morgan, getting out of the ring, as quick as he can, whilst Austin tags in the Crippler, Chris Benoit.
Benoit and Morgan then come face to face in the centre of the ring and have a war of words, go face to face, then Morgan throws a right hand, but Benoit replies with a chop. Matt goes for a punch, but it’s blocked, and Benoit hit’s another chop, with Morgan turning away in agony. He turns back around and is met with a clothesline from the Wolverine, resulting in a knock down. Benoit then picks up Morgan and delivers a high angle back drop. He makes the cover, 1...2...Goldberg makes the save for Morgan. Benoit is unhappy, but continues the beating on Matt. He then hit’s a side slam, and signals for the Headbutt, making a cut throat taunt. Benoit looks to climb the ropes, but Steiner stops him, only to eat a Headbutt, knocking him to the floor below for his troubles. Benoit now climbs the ropes, but by now, Morgan has recovered, and he stops Benoit at the top rope. Morgan goes for a superplex, but Benoit fights out, and knocks Matt off the top, and quickly flies through the air, AND SCORES WITH THE HEADBUTT!!! He then gets a cover,

………………SNITSKY MAKES THE SAVE………………
Benoit is furious, and as Snitsky steps back out of the ring, Benoit grabs him by the head, and runs him along the apron, banging Snitskys head off the turnbuckle, before punching him off the apron. Benoit now sets up for the Cross face on Morgan, but from behind, Bill Goldberg scores with a hard clothesline to the back of the head, knocking Benoit down.
This sends The Rock into the ring, after seeing enough. The Great One enters the ring, and tackles down Goldberg unloading right hands. Rock is sent out of the ring, as Benoit tags in Austin, and Morgan gets a tag to Steiner. Big Poppa Pump tries to go blow for blow with The Rattlesnake, but Austin is too much for him, and pounds Steiner into the corner, then stomps a mudhole in him, walking it dry. Austin drags Steiner out, and delivers a suplex, following up with a cover, 1...2...Kick Out.
The Rattlesnake drags Steiner back up, and kicks him in the gut, bounces off the ropes, but as an act of desperation, Test knees Austin in the back, with Stone Cold staggering into the path of Steiner, who connects with a T-Bone Suplex on the Rattlesnake. He hooks the leg, 1...2...Kick Out. The Rock and Benoit lose their cool, and get into the ring, taking a shot at the opponents, before being held back by the referee. Goldberg, Morgan, Test and Snitsky all looks to get a pieces of Goldberg, but as Morgan goes for a whip, Austin reverses, and whips Matt Morgan into his partners.
Immediately, Austin takes the opening, and tags in Chris Benoit, but Steiner hasn’t seen it. He goes after Austin, but Austin jumps off the apron, and from behind, Chris Benoit hits Steiner with a German Suplex, and immediately follows up, going for the Crossface … and applies it!!!
Benoit is ripping and tearing at Freakzillas neck and back with the Crippler Crossface, as the referee manages to send Team Goldberg back to their corner, as we cut back to Steiner in the middle of the ring, caught in the Crossface. Benoit is ripping and tearing at Big Poppa Pump, but Steiner rolls over to try and get a pinning combination on The Wolverine, to no avail, as Benoit rolls right through, keeping the Crossface locked on. Steiner though, is saved, with Goldberg kicking Benoit, forcing him to break it.
Rock and Austin are rightly angered, whilst The Big Bad Booty Daddy crawls a little to his corner, and tags in Test. Test immediately picks Benoit up, but is caught with a chop, and a second, but Test stops the momentum for Benoit, with a hard knee to the sternum of the Crippler. He whips Benoit to the corner, and follows in with a corner splash, which has Benoit stagger out, allowing Test to hit a pump handle slam to the Wolverine. Cover, 1...2...Broken by The Rock. Rock is immediately admonished back to the apron, whilst Test takes advantage of the distraction, and chokes Benoit, whilst the referee’s back is turned.
As soon as the referee turns back around, Test lets go, and pretends as if he’s being playing by the rules. He places Benoit’s head on the middle rope, then riles up the opposing team again, which plays right into his hands, with Austin trying to get into the ring, but is stopped by the official. Test once again, takes advantage of the distraction, and chokes Benoit in the ropes with his knee, until the referee turns around. Test then bounces off the ropes, and scores with a knee to the back of the head of Benoit. Test drags The Wolverine back to his teams corner and tags in Goldberg.
Goldberg enters, looking ready to unload some pent up aggression. He backs Benoit into the corner, and delivers a flurry of right hands, before whipping Benoit off the ropes, and hitting him with a mule kick. Goldberg scrambles and makes the cover, 1...2...Kick Out!!! He instantly drags Benoit back to his feet, and whips him off the ropes, to go for a clothesline, but Benoit ducks, and goes for a German Suplex, but Goldberg elbows free, scoops Benoit up, and scores with a running power slam. Hooks the leg, 1...2...Kick Out. Goldberg reaches up, and makes a tag to Matt Morgan.
Morgan enters the ring and almost with no trouble scoops Benoit up, and hit’s a big hip toss. He makes the cover, 1...2...Benoit kicks out. Morgan then lays into him with repeated right hands in the corner, trash talking along the way. Morgan drags an injured Wolverine back up, and hit’s a backbreaker, quickly getting a cover, 1...2...Benoit kicks out again!!! Morgan stays in control of his anger, bringing Benoit back up to his vertical base, and whips him off the ropes hitting a boot to the face. He applies a cobra clutch for a short spell before Benoit begins to fight out with a number of kicks. Benoit then bounces off the ropes and the two men collide with a double clothesline.
Both men are down, and slowly they crawl to their corners for a tag. They make a tag at the same time, Morgan tagging Snitsky and Chris Benoit reaches out to receive a tag from The Rock. Rock and Snitsky sprint to the centre of the ring and go blow for blow, Snitsky gets the early advantage and backs the Peoples Champion into the ropes, then hit’s a few shots to the mouth, but after three, Rock ducks, bounces off the ropes and hit’s a clothesline to Gene. He then whips him off the ropes, but Snitsky reverses and hit’s a big boot on Rock, as he comes back. Snitsky whips him into the corner with haste, and The Rock is on dream street still, after the boot. Gene then goes for a leg lock, but Rock kicks him away, and gets a school boy on Snitsky, 1...2...Snitsky kicks out. The Rock picks Snitsky up, backs him into the ropes, and throws a few right hands, before whipping him off the ropes, and upon his return, Rock puts Snitsky down with a back body drop.
Snitsky shoots back up, but Rock responds, with a clothesline, keeps the pressure on, and goes for a whip into the corner, but this is reversed by Snitsky, only for The Rock to stop himself, and turn around, knocking Snitsky down with a right hand. Rock picks Snitsky up, and charges him into the corner, follows in, and opens Snitsky up with chops, then lays in several right hands, with Snitsky staggering out, into another big knock down from The Great One.
Snitsky then backs himself into the corner, and The Peoples Champion follows, but Gene tricks him and gets a thumb to the eye, then nails a knee, deep into the mid section of The Rock, before applying a hammer lock, and drags The Rock to the corner, tagging in Goldberg. Goldberg steps in, and axe handles the arm, before backing The Rock into the corner, and pounds him down and begins to work on his arm with more shots to the bicep. Goldberg drags The Rock from the corner, and applies a wristlock, slamming The Rocks arm across the ropes. Goldberg again drags Rock to his teams corner, this time tagging in Test.
Test enters and hit’s a gut wrench suplex, with Rock landing directly onto his bad arm. Test hit’s another, and then smiles at the opposition, trying to goad them into getting into the ring. He slams The Rocks arm off the mat and makes the cover, 1.…2.…Rock kicks out!! Test isn’t surprised, not expecting to keep Rock down with such a simple move. He then applies an armbar. Quickly, The Rock breaks the hold by grabbing the ropes, but Test keeps it on until the count of four. This infuriates Benoit and Austin, who are beginning to get restless on the outside. Test then places the arm on the middle rope and bounces his leg onto it. Test then taunts Benoit, before tagging in Steiner again.
Steiner then taunts the two opponents, flexing his muscles, and we see Benoit try to get into the ring, but is stopped by the referee. Big Poppa Pump meanwhile, goes for an arm bar, but Rock fights it. Steiner takes a step back, before bending back down, but The Rock cradles Steiner … No count is made though, as the referee has his back turned, and Goldberg kicks Rock, breaking the pin. BPP decides to tag in Matt Morgan. Morgan walks around the ring, before hitting a knee drop, then works on the arm, with knees to the bicep before going for a cross armbreaker, but Rock punches him away into his corner, where Gene Snitsky makes the tag. He runs into the ring, but is met with a reverse elbow from The Great One.
The Rock then makes a desperation tag to Steve Austin, while Snitsky tags in Big Poppa Pump, Scott Steiner. They sprint to the middle and go blow for blow. Austin bounces off the ropes, but Goldberg pulls the ropes down and Stone Cold goes out of the ring. Benoit and a recovering Rock have now had enough and get into the ring, leading to an all out brawl. All eight superstars then engage in a mass brawl, with Rock, Austin and Benoit trying to topple five bigger men. Rock hit’s a double clothesline, knocking Test and Morgan over the top rope to the floor, whilst Austin drags Snitsky out, then gets back in, whilst Benoit runs off the ropes, and dives with a tope through the ropes knocking down Snitsky, whilst The Rock brawls with Goldberg through the ropes.
It comes down to just the two legal men, Steiner and Austin in the ring. Steiner goes for a Belly to Belly, but Austin blocks it and goes for his Stunner, but this is also blocked. The two tussle for supremacy, until Morgan enters. Matt Morgan tries to attack Austin from behind, but The Rattlesnake moves out of the way, and Morgan hits Steiner instead. He runs back at Austin, but The Rattlesnake low bridges the seven footer, with Morgan falling out of the ring, landing directly on Test. In the ring, Scott Steiner stumbles into the path of Austin … STUNNER!!!! Austin hooks the leg,

Team Bring It close the gap, as Chris Benoit makes a tag into the match from Austin, whilst Matt Morgan gets back in, but walks right into the path of Chris Benoit, who takes him down … CROSS FACE!!!! Matt Morgan is caught, centre of the ring, Morgan screams out as Benoit clamps in the submission, Morgan tries to roll through, but Benoit keeps it on. Matt then tries to crawl, but Benoit stops him from crawling!!! Morgan is caught, dead centre in the ring!!!! Triple H has no other choice left, and TAPS OUT!!!!! BENOIT ELIMINATES MATT MORGAN!!!

Now Test comes in, and blind sides Benoit with a clothesline. He stomps Benoit, then drags him up, hitting a Full Nelson Slam. Test hooks the leg, 1...2...Kick Out from Benoit. Test gets up, and looks to be in a hurry, to try and get his side back in control, sizing Benoit up for the Big Boot, but as he goes for it, Benoit ducks, clutches Test from behind, and scores with a German Suplex … Benoit hangs on, and drags Test back up … second German Suplex … BENOIT HOLDS ON … drags Test back to his feet … THIRD GERMAN SUPLEX … WITH A BRIDGE!!!

The balance has shifted, with Team Bring It now in control, with a 3 on 2 advantage. Now, in comes Snitsky, clubs the back of the Crippler, whips him off the ropes, and drives a knee to the mid section of Benoit, turning him inside out from the impact. Snitsky doesn’t waste any time, and drags Benoit back up, looking to execute the Pumphandle Slam, but Benoit rolls out, and rolls Snitsky up, taking the big man by surprise…

……KICK OUT……
Snitsky gets up, goes for a clothesline, but Benoit ducks, trips the leg of Snitsky, and despite some resistance from Snitsky, Benoit applies the Sharpshooter!!!!! In almost no time at all, Snitsky is tapping, … SNITSKY TAPS OUT … and thus, is eliminated!!!!!


Eliminated: Gene Snitsky by Chris Benoit @ 18:16


Goldberg is left all alone, with Benoit, Austin and Rock stepping it up a gear in this match. Snitsky takes his elimination badly, and retaliates, spearing down Chris Benoit from behind, before being escorted to the back by two officials. As Snitsky leaves, he yells back at Benoit that that WAS his fault.

Goldberg slides back into the ring, fighting off The Rock, and picks Benoit up in the air, in position for a Press Slam, but changes it in mid air into a spine buster, slamming The Crippler onto the canvas. Goldberg looks up, and points his finger up high, signalling for the Jackhammer. Goldberg gets Benoit up, but somehow, the Rabid Wolverine fights down, landing on his feet, tagging in Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Austin and Goldberg trade blows in the centre of the ring, with the fans going bananas as these two men get to share the ring, with no holding back. Austin whips Goldberg into the ropes, but Goldberg comes back … SPEAR!!!! He goes for a cover…

……KICK OUT……
Austin gets his shoulder up, with Goldberg looking worried, unable to get any of the three men out at this point. He drags a groggy Austin to his feet, and sends him to the ropes, but Austin comes back, knocking leaping into the air, taking Goldberg down with the Lou Thesz Press!!! Austin tees off with right hands to the temple of Goldberg. He bounces back up, and off the ropes, coming back with the F**k you Elbow. Austin covers, 1...2...Kick Out. The Rattlesnake goes back to the corner, and makes a tag to The Rock.
The Rock gets in, and goes immediately at Goldberg, who is pulling himself up in the corner, and The Rock strikes him, with some mean right hands, before sending Goldberg into the ropes, and hit’s a Spinebuster!!!! Hooks the leg, 1...2...Kick Out from Goldberg. The Rock gets back up, and nods to Austin, as if to say lets end this now. He stalks Goldberg, as Bill stumbles to his feet, and turns around, into The Rock ... ROCK BOTTOM!!!
Rock doesn’t cover though, instead, he nips up, and looks to his teams corner, and tags Austin in, whilst Rock picks Goldberg up, whipping him towards Austin who kicks Goldberg in the gut … and follows up … STUNNER!!! Austin looks set to cover, but he shakes his head, and looks to Benoit, pointing to the top rope!!! Benoit smiles, and nods, before climbing the ropes, and flies through the air, executing the Swandive Headbutt!!! Benoit rolls out, whilst The Rock gets tagged back in by Austin, and he takes position at the head of Goldberg, ripping off his elbow pad, before running off both sides of the ropes, and then connects with the most electrifying move in sports entertainment today … THE PEOPLES ELBOW!!!!! Rock hooks the leg, with Austin already calling for a beer …

Eliminated: Goldberg by The Rock @ 21:28

Winners: Team Bring It

Rock, Benoit and Austin share the ring, all three surviving the match, despite at one point being 5 - 3 down. Goldberg is helped out of the ring by referees, whilst Austin calls for a few beers, throwing two to Benoit, and two to The Rock, before taking two for himself. The three men toast each other in the centre of the ring, and share the beers, with the fans giving them a great ovation.


Michael Cole:
The Rock, Steve Austin & Chris Benoit stared adversity in the face tonight Tazz, and all three of them overcame the disadvantages ahead of them, to rebound, and eliminate Scott Steiner, Test, Matt Morgan, Gene Snitsky, and Goldberg.


Tazz:
That’s why The Rock and Austin are known as two of the greatest superstars to ever step foot in a ring, and its why Chris Benoit is known as one of the toughest guys, pound for pound in the wrestling industry today.


Michael Cole:
In just a few moments, the WWE Championship will be decided, but right now, lets send it to Todd Grisham, who is with Team Foley…


Backstage to Todd Grisham…


Todd Grisham:
Mick Foley, you, Rey Mysterio, The Undertaker, Eugene and Randy Orton will step into War Games, and face Ric Flair, Batista, Rob Van Dam, Christian and Carlito. The coin toss will be just moments before the match which will determine who gets the first entrant once the three minute intervals begin, and Mick, Id love to know what you, and your team is thinking, just minutes before the biggest match of your career as General Manager.


Mick Foley:
Todd, it’s hard to describe how I’m feeling right now. I’m nervous as hell, I haven’t slept a wink in three nights, I’ve been relying on coffee just to get me through today, but I’m confident that my three guys alongside me, and The Undertaker will get the job done.


Rey Mysterio:
Todd, we’ve had to listen to Ric Flair and his group run down Mick Foley now for months. Well, I have no problems saying that it’s thanks to Mick Foley that I’m the Intercontinental Champion. It’s thanks to Mick Foley that I’ve been given a fair chance on Raw, so Mick, I promise you, I’ll give everything I’ve got tonight in order to help you keep your job. I’ll bleed, I’ll sweat, and I’ll do whatever it takes.


Randy Orton:
Mick, tonight, I owe you. I owe you the performance of a lifetime. I’ve given you grief, given you hell, but Mick, over the past twelve months, I’ve come to respect the hell out of you. In War Games tonight, I will give you everything I’ve got to keep you in a job.


Orton and Mysterio pat Foley on the back, and we see Eugene hover over the mic.


Eugene:
NOW ITS TIME TO KICK ASS!!!


Eugene storms off, with Foley, Mysterio and Orton looking surprised by the fire shown by Eugene before nodding in agreement, and walking off.


Preview video airs for the next Smackdown Brand Pay Per View on December 18th, Fully Loaded from Dallas, Texas.


Back to the arena…


**Can You Feel The Heat??** Latino Heat’s music plays, as Eddie Guerrero enters to a HUGE pop, in his low rider. Eddie nods his head to the beat of the music, driving to the ring. He exit’s the vehicle, pounding his chest to the fans, before climbing up the steps, and into the ring.


Tony Chimel:
The following contest, is a Fatal Four Way, elimination match, for the WWE Championship!!! Making his way to the ring, from El Paso, Texas, weighing 230 pounds, Eddie Guerrrrero!!!


Michael Cole:
Is this the night, that Eddie Guerrero finally reaches the pinnacle of the wrestling industry, and becomes the WWE Champion??

Tazz:
No one deserves it more than Latino Heat, Cole. Eddie has worked immensely to be in this spot, and I wouldn’t begrudge Eddie a chance as WWE Champion.


**HERE COMES THE PAIN** Brock Lesnar enters the arena, along with Heyman to a batch of heat.


Tony Chimel:
And, being accompanied to the ring, by Paul Heyman, weighing 295 pounds, from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Brock Lesnar!!!


Michael Cole:
Well, Brock Lesnar, the biggest man in the match, would certainly disagree about Eddie Guerrero walking out with the WWE Title, because obviously, Lesnar wants that belt himself.

Tazz:
It’ll take something special to beat Lesnar. Especially, with Heyman at ringside, backing him up.


**TIME TO PLAY THE GAME** Triple H enters, with his bottle of water, and brandishes a watch, trying to mock Eddie already about the time limit.


Tony Chimel:
From Greenwich, Connecticut, weighing in at 265 pounds, The Game, Triple H.


Michael Cole:
Nine times, Triple H has climbed to the top of the mountain, and tonight, The Game attempts to reach the top once more, for a tenth title reign.

Tazz:
Triple H is one bad dude, Cole. I bet he has a methodical game plan set out tonight, in his bid for domination once more.


**Medal** Kurt Angle enters the arena, to a magnificent pop from Louisville. Angle sets off his pyro and continues down the ramp.


Tony Chimel:
And introducing, from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, weighing 237 pounds, he is the WWE Champion, Kurt Angle!!!


Michael Cole:
Kurt Angle has had a magnificent run as the WWE Champion, Tazz, but tonight, for the first time, he defends in a Four Way match, but thankfully for him, he will have to be pinned to lose the belt, with elimination rules.

Tazz:
It’s go time Cole. Kurt Angle faces a huge task here tonight, but if anyone can keep the title in a match like this, it is Angle.


WWE Championship:
Fatal Four Way Elimination Match:

Kurt Angle vs. Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar
w/ Paul Heyman vs. Eddie Guerrero


Kurt Angle hands the title belt over to the official, looking at his three opponents, who all look desperate for the match to begin. The bell rings, and all four stick to their corner, keeping their eyes on each other. Angle and Lesnar quickly tie up, whilst Triple H goes for a cheap shot on Eddie, but Latino Heat blocks it, and knocks down The Game with a stinging right hand. Lesnar backs Kurt Angle into the corner, with the referee stepping in between them, trying to break them up, but Lesnar takes a cheap shot.

Brock Lesnar quickly drives his knee into the midsection of Angle, before bending down, and ramming his shoulder into the rib cage and sternum of the Champion, whilst on the other side of the ring, Eddie and Hunter have filtered to the outside of the ring. Lesnar whips Angle to the other corner, follows in, and hit’s a clothesline. Kurt Angle staggers out, with Lesnar scooping Angle up, and hit’s a rib breaker … but holds on, hitting a second rib breaker … and holds on, hitting a third rib breaker, this time dropping Angle, and getting a cover on the WWE Champion, 1...2...Shoulder up.
Brock gets to his feet, dragging Angle up, but Kurt stops him, with a shot to the bread basket, winding The 295 Pounder. Angle reaches the ropes to pull himself up, and charges towards Lesnar, but The Challenger turns the tide, and tries to take down Angle for a belly to belly … but Angle tries to block it, and eventually kicks the knee of Brock, breaking the challengers grip. Instantly, the champion takes down Lesnar with a double leg, and turns the big man over, applying a single leg crab!!!
Angle pulls back, as Lesnar is heard on the mat, screaming from the agony of the submission, wearing down his knee, with the Olympian cranking back, looking for the submission. Angle pulls Lesnar further to the middle of the ring, getting Brock away from the ropes, before dropping down to try and apply an STF, BUT LESNAR ROLLS OUT, FREEING HIMSELF IN THE ROPES!!!
Angle backs off, as Brock Lesnar sticks to the ropes, whilst he gets back to a vertical base. The two men circle the ring, simultaneously centring and locking up. Angle strikes first, applying a headlock, before tripping Lesnar down, and floats over into a front face lock. Lesnar tries to get onto his side, but Angle applies enough pressure to hold the submission in. However, the champion doesn’t expect Brock to be as strong as he is, with the challenger starting to push up, beginning to take Angle with him!!! Angle notices, and quickly releases the hold, before clubbing the back, and tries to apply the front face lock again, but the big man swivels free, and goes for a headlock of his own, but Angle fights it, getting up, and bouncing off the ropes, running straight into a kick to the gut from the big man. Lesnar quickly adjusts his body, and floats Angle over, scoring with a Northern Lights Suplex, bridging for a cover…

………………KICK OUT………………
!!!!
Brock lets go, and stomps the face of Angle, whilst Triple H climbs back into the ring. Lesnar turns around, and goes face to face with The Game, who steps back a little, holding his arms up, before pointing to Angle, and motioning that he and Lesnar team up to eliminate Angle. Lesnar thinks about it for a moment, then looks to Heyman, who gives it the thumbs up, with Lesnar nodding. Brock and Triple H proceed towards Angle, stomping the champion. Lesnar drags Angle up by the singlet, and whips him towards Triple H who knocks Angle back down with a thunderous clothesline. Triple H looks to make a cover, but Lesnar gets to Angle first, dragging him back up by the arm, turning Angle inside out, hitting a Belly to Belly.
Lesnar now goes for a cover, but Triple H drops an elbow on The Olympian first, which stops Lesnar. Brock pushes Triple H away, then goes to hook the leg, but instead, Triple H drags him off. Brock Lesnar shoots up onto his feet, and yells at Triple H, asking him what his problem is. Triple H tells Brock that the deal was he got the pin. Lesnar shakes his head in disagreement, and tells Triple H they never agreed on that. Triple H turns away for a moment, then quickly tries to sucker Lesnar with a right hand, but Brock ducks, kicks Triple H in the gut, and gets The Game up for the F5, but Triple H slips out, and runs Lesnar into the corner, ramming his shoulder into the midsection of Brock. Triple H then whips his bigger opponent to the corner, as hard as possible, with Lesnar hitting the corner, chest first, bouncing out, and falling to the canvas.
Triple H follows in, going for a cover, 1...2...Kick Out. Lesnar rolls his shoulder up, and sits up, trying to shake the cobwebs loose. Triple H meanwhile, sees Angle getting to his feet, and has an idea. He grabs Lesnar, and throws a few short right hands, before watching Angle reach his feet, and whips Lesnar into the champion, with both clashing, mid ring. Angle falls back down, whilst Brock staggers into the ropes, then staggers out, with Triple H knocking Lesnar down with a high knee.
The Game walks to the corner, and starts to stomp on Kurt Angle, taking away the breath of the Champion, but doesn’t see Eddie Guerrero slide back in, and run to the corner, hitting Triple H from behind with a Calf Kick, knocking Triple H through the middle rope to the floor. Eddie takes a look at Angle, then Angle quickly pushes Eddie out of the way, and runs at Lesnar, knocking him down with a clothesline. Angle shouts to Eddie to help him, with Guerrero shrugging his shoulders, not bothered. He and Angle pick Lesnar up, and get him in position for a double suplex, then drop him onto the ropes, ribs first. Brock manages to hang onto the top rope, but not for long, with Angle hitting an uppercut forearm, sending Lesnar off the apron, and to the floor.
This leaves just Latino Heat, and The Olympic Champion in the ring, and right away, Guerrero raises his hand for a test of strength. Angle stands back, not taking his eyes of Latino Heat, and thinks about it. He knows Guerrero is a shady character, who lies cheats and steals, and cant trust him to go for the lock up, and shakes his head, not wanting the test of strength. Eddie smiles, and goes down on one knee, then crosses his heart as if to say he wont try any funny business, which gets a chuckle from the fans. Kurt Angle looks around, rubs his chin, then cautiously goes toward Eddie Guerrero, and instead of the test of strength, they lock up.
Immediately, Angle goes behind, and applies a hammerlock. Eddie though, as quick as a cat, hit’s a snap mare, and applies a headlock. Angle shoots his hips up, and switches the hold to a front face lock in his favour. Eddie struggles to break free, and tries to roll through, but Angle has a strong grip. Guerrero then starts to uses the power of his legs to force himself backwards, and then grips his feet around the ropes, forcing the hold to be broken. Both men rise to their feet, looking ready for a war. They go face to face, nose to nose, and start trash talking. Eddie shoves Angle in the face, and Angle shoves Eddie back in the chest. Eddie then swings a right hand, but Angle blocks it, swings Guerrero around, and goes for a clothesline, but Eddie ducks, and as Angle comes back around, Eddie pokes him in the eye. Angle staggers, and Eddie goes for a vertical suplex, but Angle kicks Eddie away, and grabs the rope, holding his eye.
Eddie smiles, with his cheeky grin, and goes right back to Angle, taking him away from the ropes, and backing him into the corner. He hit’s a chop, then another, but Angle then turns the tide, and chops Eddie. Throughout the exchange, the fans meet every chop with a huge “WOOOOO”.
Angle relentlessly chops at Guerrero, who chops back at Angle, but the Olympic Hero hits more frequent, and harder chops, taking the air from Guerrero. He then goes to whip Latino Heat across the ring, but Guerrero holds onto Angle’s singlet, stretching it, then lets go, and it crashes against Angle, stinging the gold medallist. Comedically, he turns away in a stinging pain, whilst Guerrero laughs, as does the crowd. Mike Chioda tries to tell Eddie off, but cant help but to laugh either.
Eddie then goes after Angle in the corner, but Angle kicks him in the gut, then follows up going for a Belly to Belly, but Guerrero blocks it, and rolls through, getting a pin cover, 1...2...Kick Out!!! Angle jumps up at Guerrero, but Eddie meets him with an arm drag, and another, and one more, before applying an arm lock. Kurt struggles in the hold, having had arm problems in the last few months, along with Eddie cutting off his way to the ropes. Angle then uses his leg, and trips Guerrero to the mat, and goes for the Anklelock, but Guerrero has it scouted, and quickly scurries to the ropes, to break it.
Angle motions to Eddie that he was that close to applying the Anklelock, whilst Eddie says that wasn’t close enough. From absolutely no where, Brock Lesnar bounds into the ring, and knocks down both men with a double clothesline, before viciously throwing Angle out of the ring. Brock hoists Guerrero up, and gets him in position for a Belly to Belly … but Eddie bits Brocks nose, with Lesnar breaking his grip. Eddie now bounces off the ropes, but from the outside, The Game trips him, and Guerrero stumbles into the path of Brock Lesnar, who hit’s a perfect Belly to Belly. He gets the cover, 1...2...Kick Out.
Triple H steps back into the ring, and attempts to pick his spot, but Brock Lesnar is wise to him, and spots Triple H. The two men look across the ring at each other, then lock up, centre ring. Lesnar backs Triple H into the corner, and goes for a whip to the opposite side, but The Game reverses, and sends in Brock instead. This time, Lesnar bounces out, and goes for a clothesline on HHH, but The Game ducks, goes for a punch, but Lesnar blocks it, spins Triple H around, and grabs the waist, delivering a release German Suplex.
Kurt Angle slowly crawls back in, whilst Eddie makes it to his feet too, and both men come for Lesnar, but Angle changes his mind, and drops down, grabbing the leg of Latino Heat … ANKLE LOCK!!! Brock Lesnar sees the submission, and although it is contested under elimination rules, it’s obvious that Brock wants everything to be from him, and he kicks Angle in the gut, gets him up for the F5 … but Triple H stops him, with a kick to the gut. Lesnar drops Angle, and Triple H goes for the Pedigree on Brock, but Lesnar quickly counters, and back drops HHH out of the ring to the floor.
Lesnar composes himself in the corner, but gets little rest bite, and Angle runs at him, but Lesnar moves out of the way, and Angle hit’s the referee instead!!! The champion stands over the official, knowing he’s just screwed up, then turns around, getting scooped up into the air, with Lesnar hitting the F5!!! Brock hooks the leg …
……
… NO REFEREE …

Brock realises what has happened, and gets back up, looking to the outside, and telling Heyman to get him a chair. Paul Heyman quickly meets the requirement, and grabs a steel chair, quickly sliding it into the ring for Brock. By now though, Kurt Angle has rolled out of the ring. Lesnar picks the chair up, and looks for Angle, then slams it on the canvas, seeing that the Champion has got out of the ring. He turns back around, and Eddie, quick as a flash, dropkicks Lesnar, who drops the 295 Pounder. Guerrero sees the chair, and tilts his head, getting an idea. Eddie picks it up, as Lesnar struggles to his feet, but sees the referee beginning to get up too. Eddie is forced to think fast, and sees Paul Heyman on the apron, trying to distract Latino Heat.
Eddie has an idea, and smashes the chair against the cranium of Paul Heyman, knocking him off the apron, then throws the chair to an unaware Brock Lesnar, before dropping onto his back on the canvas. The referee gets back up, having heard the chair shot, and sees Eddie down, and Lesnar with the chair. Brock realises he’s been had, and tries to explain to the official, but the referee doesn’t buy it one bit. Eddie peeks out of one eye to see whats going on, as Lesnar pleas with the referee, and in a fit of rage, Lesnar shoves the referee, who has now seen enough, and disqualifies Brock!!!!!


Eliminated: Brock Lesnar via DQ @ 10:01


Brock Lesnar has been eliminated!!!! He slams the chair down, and storms out of the ring, yelling at Eddie, who still lies down, now grinning. Triple H gets back in the ring, thinking Brock did hit Eddie with the chair, and goes for a cover, but Eddie cradles The Game, 1...2...Kick Out!!! Triple H just gets out of it in time, but as he gets up, he is waffled by a Kurt Angle clothesline, turning The Game inside out.

Angle drags The Game back to his feet, and holds him, allowing Eddie to hit a chop, before Guerrero holds HHH, and Angle scores with a chop. Both men then take turns chopping Triple H, with the crowd counting along with them. Angle then hit’s a side suplex on HHH, and goes for a cover, but immediately, Guerrero pulls him off. Angle gets up, and they go face to face, head to head. Kurt throws a right at Eddie, which is returned from Guerrero, Angle throws another at Eddie, as does Guerrero in return. The two warriors battle it out punch for punch, ending up fighting to the outside, rolling on the ground, beating the crap out of one another.
This helps one person, Triple H. The Game recovers from his beating earlier, and begins to watch from the ring, as Guerrero and Angle throw punches back and forth at one another. HHH claps at both men, who don’t even seem to notice him watching them. Angle bangs Guerrero’s head off the steps, and Eddie responds by kneeing Kurt in the gut, then ramming him into the ring post, before they start to brawl again. In the ring, Triple H exposes one of the turnbuckles, whilst the referee’s attention is diverted. Latino Heat and The Olympian then get back in, still brawling, with neither man getting any edge. Immediately, The Game cockily exit’s the ring, allowing his two opponents to continue wearing themselves out.
Guerrero beats Angle down in the corner, then goes for a Monkey flip, but the Gold Medallist breaks free, then drops an elbow on Eddie, gaining the advantage on the challenger. Kurt Angle then applies a half nelson on Eddie, cranking back, wearing and tearing at the shoulder, damaging the shoulder area of Guerrero. Eddie never looks like tapping, but the damage is being done.
Guerrero soon then fights back, and elbows free of the hold, but Angle puts him right back down with a stiff chop. The Olympian picks up Guerrero, and whips him across the ring, right into the corner post. Angle then runs toward Guerrero, but Eddie moves out of the way, and Kurt runs into the corner. Eddie then dropkicks the champion, and places him on the top rope, then delivers a beautiful hurricanrana on Angle, followed by a cover, 1...2...Kick Out!!!
Eddie now begins to fire up, and steps it up a gear, nailing a side suplex, and hooking the leg once again, 1...2...Kick Out from Angle. Eddie now senses that the momentum has shifted towards him, and he begins to stomp on Kurt in the corner, then whips him off the ropes, and hit’s an unexpected arm breaker to one of the opponents. Guerrero then picks him up again, and hits another arm breaker, then applies an armbar on Kurt Angle, who looks set to begin to suffer from his bad arm for the third month in a row.
Angle looks to be in a considerable amount of pain, and tries to claw to the ropes, but Eddies holds firm, and refuses to let the champion move. Angle realises this, and then fights up to his feet, but Eddie still has an arm lock applied on the champion. Angle then punches Guerrero, punches again, a third time, fourth and fifth, then the sixth right hand, eventually leads to Guerrero releasing the hold. The Gold Medallist is then ready to strike again, but Guerrero pokes the eyes of Angle, typically like Guerrero, lying, cheating and stealing. This gets a decent pop, and Guerrero follows up with a snap suplex. Eddie holds on, and goes for another suplex, perhaps now going for the three amigo’s, but Angle blocks the second, then hit’s a suplex of his own. The Champion floats into a cover, 1...2...Kick Out!!!
Angle then picks up Eddie, and clubs him with forearms to the back, but Eddie comes back with a knee, then bounces off the ropes, and leapfrogs Angle, before jumping to the top rope, but before being able to do anything, Angle clubs him on the back, then gets on the middle rope himself, and the arena quietens down, as they see Angle get a grip around the waist of Guerrero, and NAILS A GERMAN SUPLEX OFF THE TOP ROPE!!!!! HHH now senses he could pick up a victory already, and quickly jumps back into the ring, quickly covering Eddie, for what should be a three…

…ANGLE BREAKS THE COUNT!!!
HHH is furious with Angle, who wanted to pin Eddie himself, and chucks him out of the ring, landing hard on the floor, leaving just Eddie and HHH. The Game picks up Latino Heat, and applies an arm lock, taking advantage of the injured shoulder Guerrero has picked up, then HHH steps through the ropes alone, with Eddie in the ring. Triple H then jumps off the apron, and Guerrero’s arm and shoulder gets stretched against the ropes. Eddie bounces back, and falls to the mat, still clutching his arm.
Triple H steps back into the ring, and stomps the arm and shoulder of Latino Heat some more, increasing the pain running through Eddies body. HHH then begins to pound his foe, with straight right hands, before being forced off by the referee. Triple H then throws his hands up in the air in an early celebration, getting more heat from the fans.
He kicks Eddie in the shoulder, then covers again, 1...2...Kick Out. He nods, then slowly picks Guerrero off the mat, before knocking him down once again with a big right hand. HHH then signals for the end, pointing to the mat for the deadly Pedigree. He leans against the ropes, awaiting Guerrero to reach his feet. Eventually, the broken down Guerrero gets up, and right away, Triple H tries to hit the Pedigree, but Eddie blocks it, with Triple H going for a clothesline, but Eddie ducks, then as HHH comes back around, Eddie meets him with a kick, before going for a suplex, which he connects with. Eddie holds on though, and gets back up, going for the three amigo’s, but as he gets up, he releases, grabbing his troublesome arm, showing signs of distress.
He tries to shake it loose, but as he turns around, Triple H meets him with a right hand to the shoulder joint. The Game whips Eddie off the ropes, but Eddie comes back, knocking The Game down with a clothesline. Triple H bounces back up, but gets knocked down again with a clothesline. This time, he is slower to make his feet, and Eddie backs him into the corner unloading with right hands. Eddie lets rip with more right hands, then executes a monkey flip, before jumping to the apron and scoring with a Hilo. Guerrero covers, 1…2…KICK OUT!!! Eddie then hit’s a springboard dropkick to Angle, knocking him off the apron once again. Guerrero then goes for a DDT on HHH, but The Game blocks it, and hit’s a spine buster on Eddie, then immediately hooks the leg, 1…2…KICK OUT!!!
Angle now re-enters the ring, and fights it out with Triple H. The Game staggers back, and the champion runs at him for a clothesline, but Triple H moves, and Angle hits Eddie, sending Guerrero out of the ring, to the floor. HHH then goes for a high knee on Kurt Angle, but The Olympian ducks, and hit’s a Belly to Belly Suplex on Triple H, 1…2…KICK OUT!!!
Angle then picks Triple H up, and goes for a German, but HHH elbows free, then hit’s a chop block to the knee of Kurt Angle. HHH smartly stomps at the knee of the champion, after knocking him down with the chop block moments ago. He kicks and stomps at the body part, then tries to pull the leg out of its socket, before dragging Angle to his feet, and whipping him to the corner. HHH pounds on his opponent, and kicks at the knee, before walking back out, and posing at the fans. Triple H then turns back around, and is met by Angle, who bursts out of the corner, with a HUGE clothesline!!! Angle then grabs the ropes, showing the pain of his knee, then shaking it loose, before bouncing Triple H off the ropes, and knocking him back down with a well driven knee to the stomach.
Angle then whips Hunter off the ropes, but The Game ducks a clothesline, and comes back with another chop block to the already injured knee of Angle. Triple H then sweeps the leg again, bringing Angle down like a sack of potatoes, before dropping an elbow to the knee. Triple H goes for the Indian Deathlock, but Kurt hooks Hunters leg, and trips him to the mat, before getting up, and catapulting Triple H into the exposed turnbuckle … which Triple H exposed himself!!! HHH then staggers back, busted open, and walks into a Belly to Belly from the Champion. He covers, 1...2...Kick Out!!!
Kurt Angle looks shocked, and gets back up, but as he turns around, he is met with a cross body from Eddie Guerrero, 1...2...KICK OUT!!!! Angle jumps up, but is met by a backbreaker from Eddie. Guerrero then hit’s a dropkick on the bloody Triple H, who then tries to roll out, but Guerrero shakes his head, and wont let HHH leave the ring. Guerrero starts to drag Triple H back in, but then, Kurt Angle gets Guerrero from behind, and hit’s a release German Suplex on Latino Heat, having Eddie land almost square on his head!!!
Angle looks to cover Guerrero, but Triple H stops him, and the two men battle to get to cover Guerrero. Triple H blocks a shot from Angle, and grabs the Olympian by the head, throwing him through the middle rope to the floor, before going after Guerrero. He sees Eddie getting to his feet, and decides to pick his spot instead, going for a high knee, but Eddie moves away, with Triple H hitting the corner. The Game staggers out, into the path of Guerrero, who kicks him in the gut, and hooks his head, spring boarding off the ropes, and executes a perfect Tornado DDT. Guerrero hooks the leg…

… BROKEN BY ANGLE …
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Eddie Guerrero looks up in a state of shock. He had Triple H beat for the first time in his career, but Angle broke the count. Guerrero looks ready to boil over, with Kurt Angle costing him the opportunity to beat The Game. Eddie backs Angle into the corner with a flurry of rights and lefts, before whipping Kurt into the opposite corner. He charges towards him, but gets tackled down by The Game. Eddie lands hard, with Triple H mounting and pounding Guerrero on the mat.
He gets up, and looks set to collide with Angle, but the two make a pact, and look down at Guerrero. Triple H drags Eddie up, and whips him off the ropes, with HHH and Angle teaming up to hit a double back body drop on Guerrero. As soon as this happens, Triple H clocks Angle with a big right, knocking him through the ropes. Triple H follows out, and runs Angle into the barrier, before whipping the champion into the steel steps.
In the ring, Eddie Guerrero looks to be recovering, and he spots Triple H and Kurt Angle going at it on the outside. He decides to relax in the ring, and watch his two opponents beat the hell out of one another. Comically, he lies on his side, resting his head on his hand, as Triple H pounds down Angle, then, as HHH looks in the ring, Guerrero quickly rolls back over, pretending to still be knocked down on the canvas, Triple H starts to take the monitors off the Spanish announce table, with the fans starting to heat up for what may be coming. He drags the lifeless champion onto the table, and looks primed to hit a Pedigree, but Angle fights it, gets to his feet, rakes the eye of Triple H, goes behind, and HITS AN ANGLE SLAM THROUGH THE ANNOUNCE TABLE!!!!!
The fans erupt with a ‘Holy Shit’ chant throughout the arena, with Triple H and Kurt Angle laying in a pile of rubble from the announce table. In the ring, Eddie is sat up in shock, his eyes wide open. Angle is first to move, with Triple H taking the brunt of the fall. The Champion gets to his feet, and staggers around, before trying to drag Triple H to the ring. He gets The Game shifted a little, but realises by the time he gets Triple H in the ring, he’ll have likely recovered.
He looks around, and sees Eddie Guerrero down on the canvas, and immediately calculates that Guerrero is still out from the 2 on 1 earlier. He drops his straps down, and enters the ring, pinpointing Guerreros ankle, but as he grabs it, Eddie turns over, and cradles the Champion,

The arena erupts, as Guerrero eliminates the Champion!!! We are guaranteed a NEW WWE Champion!!!!! Kurt Angle shoots up immediately following the pin fall, telling the referee he was cheated. The official sends Angle out of the ring, whilst the cheeky Guerrero waves goodbye to Angle. Angle storms out of the ring, and despite being a face, the fans chant ‘Na, na, na, na … na, na, na, na, … hey, hey, hey … GOODBYE’ to Angle.

Guerrero gets back up, and looks to the outside at the man he has never EVER beaten. The Game struggles to his feet, as Eddie stands at the ropes, and waits until HHH reaches his vertical base before slingshot ting over the top rope, hitting a pescado on The Game!!! Eddie pulls himself up on the Smackdown announce table, whilst Triple H rolls onto his front, trying to shake the cobwebs loose. Eddie is up first, and he stomps the back of Triple H, picking his long running adversary up to his feet, rolling The Game back inside the ring, following in behind him.
Eddie watches, as Triple H pulls himself up in the corner. Guerrero comes in after him, and goes for a whip into the opposite corner, but HHH counters, and whips Eddie, chest first into the corner instead. Triple H then waits for Guerrero to stagger out and The Game hits another hard whip into the corner, with Eddie hitting sternum first. He bounces out, and Triple H clotheslines the opponent down and hooks the far leg, 1...2...Kick Out!!!
Triple H picks his enemy up by the hair, and backs him into the corner. He grabs him by the face, and tells him that he doesn’t know what he will NEVER beat him. He slaps Eddie, but this sends Guerrero into overdrive, and Latino Heat tackles The Game down, and begins to throw some furious right hands at The Game.
Eddie gets to his feet after pounding on The Game, with the New Hampshire faithful going nuts for Eddie. He shows his respect, then knocks down The Game with a reverse elbow. He gets a cover, 1...2...Kick Out!! Eddie follows up, and hit’s a headlock takedown, and goes for a sleeper, but Triple H fights it, and pushes Eddie into the ropes, then clotheslines him down. HHH gets a cover now, 1...2...Kick Out!! Hunter doesn’t look pleased, and picks up Guerrero. He goes for a whip, but Eddie blocks it. Triple H throws a right, but Guerrero throws one right back. Triple H throws one, but Eddie again strikes back. The two heated rivals now, are fighting it out to see who has the most will power, taking turns in throwing right hands.

He comes back off the ropes with a high knee and Triple H gets a quick, cover, 1...2...Kick Out!!! Triple H now waits, as Guerrero gets to his feet, as does Triple H. They come to the centre of the ring, as HHH stares him down, and Eddie starts to fire up. He stamps the ground, and then throws a big time right, another big time right, and another after that!!! He then bounces off the ropes, and nails The Game with one more, sending Triple H down to the canvas, sprawling!!!!
“Lets Go Eddie” chants erupt, as Eddie fires up, and jives around the ring. He waits for HHH to get up, and then knocks him back down with a right hand. He gets up again, and again, Eddie knocks him down. Eddie then picks up HHH, but Hunter pushes him away, then takes down Guerrero with a DDT!!! He gets a cover, 1...2...Kick Out!!!
Triple H argues with the referee before turning around and kicking Eddie in the face, sending Latino Heat down again. The Game drags Eddie onto his feet, and hit’s a suplex. He goes for another cover, 1.….2.….Kick Out!!! HHH starts telling the crowd to chant for Eddie, but they boo HHH instead. He responds, and politely tells them to “F*ck off”, then watches as Eddie struggles to reach his vertical base. Triple H laughs, and mouths to Eddie that he should have left while he had the chance. He knocks Eddie down, then picks him up, and whips him off the ropes. He goes for a clothesline, but Guerrero ducks, and goes for a hurricanrana, but HHH counters and powerbombs Guerrero!!! HHH then hooks the leg,

Triple H is in shock. He looks down at the lifeless Guerrero, and cant believe that he kicked out!!! He argues with the referee, but he refuses to listen. The Game takes a moment to get his head together, then drops an elbow on his barely mobile opponent. He gets a cover, 1...2...Kick Out. Triple H pulls his opponent up, and whips Eddie, hard into the corner with HHH following up with a face buster upon Eddies return. Triple H then bounces off the ropes and hit’s a knee drop.

Triple H shakes his head, repeating the word no, over and over, irate that he cant put Guerrero down on this night. Triple H drags Eddie back up, putting him into position for the Pedigree. He hooks the arms, and looks set to jump, but Eddie drops to a knee, blocking the move. Triple H tries to pull him back up, but Eddie instead runs him into the corner. Triple H releases, and Guerrero steps back, with HHH looking to hit a clothesline, but Eddie ducks, and TRIPLE H HIT’S THE REFEREE!!!

He decides though to take the risk, and flies through the air … NAILING THE FROG SPLASH!!!! Guerrero rolls around for a moment, before trying to get the referee awake. The referee still doesn’t move, and Eddie tries to think of a way to get him up. He looks around, and then rolls out of the ring, making his way to the Smackdown ring announcer, Tony Chimel, and pulls his shoe off, then his sock. Guerrero immediately drops the sock, motioning that it stinks. He then picks it up again by the edge, and gets back inside the ring, throwing the sock at the referee. The fans laugh, as it does have an effect. The referee begins to stir, as Eddie looks to turn back to Triple H, but The Game gets to him first, hitting a low blow!!!! Triple H quickly gets Guerrero into position, and delivers the Pedigree!!!! The Game give the referee a shove, and hooks the leg …

He drags Guerrero halfway up, and goes for the Pedigree again, but Eddie blocks it, and fights to his feet, backing his opponent against the ropes with an outbreak of right hands, before whipping him off, meeting HHH upon his return with a hip toss. Triple H slowly gets back up, walking into the path of a front slam from Guerrero. Eddie jives again, and as Triple H gets back up, Guerrero kicks him in the gut, before getting HHH up in the air for a suplex, but instead, he hit’s a faultless brain buster. Guerrero jumps to his feet, and leaps to the top rope, as the fans feel the momentum going his way. He pounds his chest, before flying through the air … FROG SPLASH!!!!! Hook of the leg…

Winner: And NEW WWE Champion, Eddie Guerrero


Michael Cole:
HE DID IT!!!! Eddie Guerrero has lived his dream, and has finally overcome Triple H to be crowned for the first time as WWE Champion!!! Feel this moment, listen to these fans. What a moment.


Tazz:
Cole, I’ve got goose bumps just sitting here. Eddie Guerrero has done the incredible, and won the WWE Title. He’s beaten the man we all thought he could never beat. Eddie Guerrero has done it!!!


Michael Cole:
He lied to eliminate Kurt Angle, cheated to get Lesnar eliminated, before frog splashing his way to the WWE Title, but Eddie Guerrero hasn’t stolen the WWE Championship, he earned it, with a vintage performance!!!


Tazz:
He lied and cheated, but with the reaction we are hearing here in the Verizon Wireless, its safe to say he stolen the hearts of the fans.


Eddie Guerrero is presented with the WWE Championship, with Guerrero on his knees in victory. Latino Heat celebrates going to each corner, before we see the majority of the Smackdown locker room empty out, with Benoit leading the way, congratulating Eddie on becoming WWE Champion. The celebrations continue, as we fade…


**Note** From this point, the WWE Title will become vacant. This is the last time I will use Eddie Guerrero, as a mark of respect. I just wanted his last appearance in this thread to be a good one. Rest in Peace Eddie. Thanks for the Memories.

Backstage, Vince McMahon is stood In between Rey Mysterio and Batista…


Vince McMahon:
Gentlemen, right now, I’m going to flip the coin to decide which team gets the first entrant into War Games, once the three minute intervals have begun. Now, should the coin land on heads, Rey Mysterio, that will mean that Team Foley gets the first entrant. However, Batista, should the coin land on tails, Team Flair gets the first entrant. Understood??


Mysterio and Batista nod, as McMahon looks to the referee who overlooks proceedings. McMahon flips the coin, and it lands on tails.


Batista clenches his fist in joy, with Team Flair getting the first advantage before the match even begins. Mysterio nods, knowing Team Foley has an uphill battle already.


Vince McMahon:
Best of luck guys, may the best team win.


The two men take a look at one another, with Rey showing no fear of the bigger man. Batista smiles, then turns away. Both men walk off in separate directions, and we see Goldberg push right past Mysterio.


Goldberg:
Get the hell outta my way smurf.


Mysterio watches as Goldberg storms on, then mutters to himself.


Rey Mysterio:
Asshole.


Back to ringside…


Michael Cole:
We are back live in the arena, and right now, as we watch the War Games structure lower, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for inviting us into your homes, but now, it’s time for myself and Tazz to sign off, and send it over to our colleagues from Raw, J.R and Coach.


Tazz:
Rocketbuster time, Cole. I cant wait.


Jim Ross:
Thank you gentlemen. Folks, the time is upon us. The power of Raw could change momentarily. It’s all on the line, it’s all at stake. Either Ric Flair, or Mick Foley will be headed to Madison Square Garden tomorrow night for Raw, as the General Manager, and one … wont.


The Coach:
Well, you say one will go to New York tomorrow night, but J.R, I don’t know if either of them will make it. They took so much out of each other last month, and it wouldn’t surprise me if they had a relapse here tonight.


Jim Ross:
The time for talking is over Coach. Here is how it all came about here tonight at the Survivor Series.


Main Event Video Package:

- Quick clips of confrontations between Ric Flair and Mick Foley

- It all comes to a head with a Mick Foley and Ric Flair showdown in early September, leading to a horrific assault from Flair and Batista.
- Mick Foley defeats Ric Flair in a bloody war at Nemesis.
- Ric Flair and a group of Raw superstars challenge the authority of Mick Foley, with the likes of Carlito, RVD and Christian all making claims to being mistreated by the General Manager.
- We see clips of their examples as they talk, before we cut to the challenge for War Games at Survivor Series, with Foley accepting.
- Sound bites of guys such as Dusty Rhodes, Arn Anderson and Sting talking about the War Games match and past experiences in the match.
- Clips of how Mick Foleys team was fully formed, with ex-enemies Randy Orton and Undertaker willing to team with Foley to help save his job.
- Build up to the match, with the theme music ‘Fly from the inside’ playing in the background, ending with the brawl this past Monday, before the video ends with some more clips of the feud between Flair and Foley, finishing with a still image of both Foley and Flair out on the canvas, bloody and battered.


Back into the arena…


Howard Finkel:
The following contest, is the five on five, War Games elimination match. Here are the rules. In just a few moments, the first member of Team Flair, and Team Foley will enter the rings. Then, every three minutes thereafter, another entrant will become involved in the match. The first to enter once the three minute time intervals begin will be the next member of Team Flair, with the next member of Team Foley entering three minutes later.

This process will continue until all ten men have entered War Games. Eliminations occur via one of three ways. Pinfall, submission, or by passing out. The winning team will be the team which eliminates all five opponents.


**ONE OF A KIND**

ENTRANT #1 - ROB VAN DAM

Rob Van Dam enters the arena to a positively mixed reaction from the fans, but there is a slight edge with the boo’s. He is accompanied by the whistle blowing Bill Alfonso, who is carrying a steel chair too.


Howard Finkel:
Introducing first, representing Team Evolution, being accompanied by Bill Alfonso, from Battle Creek, Michigan, weighing 238 pounds, Rob Van Dam!!!


Jim Ross:
Last month at Nemesis, RVD was within seconds of becoming Intercontinental Champion, but in the end, it wasn’t to be, with Rey Mysterio just outlasting his former friend, in an awesome battle.


The Coach:
Well, Ric Flair has put a hell of a lot of faith in Van Dam, making him his first entrant in this match. I’ll be interested to see who Foley sends out first.


**Burn in my light**

ENTRANT #2 - RANDY ORTON

Randy Orton enters to a booming cheer from Manchester. The Legend Killer looks ready for a war, staring straight at his opponent, who waits in the ring for the third generation superstar.


Howard Finkel:
And, representing Team Foley, from St. Louis, Missouri, weighing 247 pounds, Randy Orton!!!


Jim Ross:
Well, I think that’s a clear indication of how Mick Foley is going into this match. He’s sending out one of his major guys, right from the get go. It’s hard to believe, that at one time, Orton and Foley were the bitterest of enemies, to now, putting trust in one another.


The Coach:
Well, I’m just excited for what should be three tremendous minutes, leading to our next entrant, which will be a member of Team Evolution.


10 Man Survivor Series Elimination Match:

1st EVER WWE War Games Match; Elimination Style: Two Men begin, with another entrant every three minutes thereafter:

If Team Foley win, Mick Foley remains Raw General Manager;

If Team Evolution win, Ric Flair becomes Raw G.M, and Foley will be fired:

Team Foley -----vs. ----- Team Evolution

Mick Foley -- Ric Flair

Randy Orton -- Batista

The Undertaker -- Christian

Rey Mysterio -- Rob Van Dam

Eugene -- Carlito


Randy stands and watches, looking composed and focused, as RVD bounces up and down, with the bell ringing to start the match. Orton moves toward RVD, with Van Dam patting his chest, before locking up with Orton. Orton drives his knee into Van Dams midsection, and whips him off the ropes, connecting with a reverse elbow upon his return. The legend killer covers, 1...2...Kick Out.

RVD gets to his feet, but gets knocked down right away by Orton, who follows in with a short clothesline. Orton covers again, 1...2...Kick Out!! Orton keeps the pressure on the former ECW TV Champion, and picks him up, whipping RVD off the ropes, and connects with a dropkick as Van Dam comes back. Orton stands up, and poses for the fans to a tremendous response. Orton goes in towards RVD again, but Van Dam backs off to the corner, and steps between the ropes, looking to keep his distance, going into the other ring.
Van Dam takes a few seconds to recover, getting his head together, whilst Orton motions to him to get on with it. RVD slowly steps back through the ropes, and into the other ring. He immediately goes into another lock up with Randy, but this time, RVD takes control, kneeing Orton in the ribs. Orton staggers back, but Van Dam refuses to let him recover, and chops Orton, before hitting a beautiful atomic drop, with Orton falling into the ropes from the impact. He comes back out, but RVD immediately takes him down again with a drop toe hold, before slapping Orton in a sign of disrespect, trying to rile up the 25 year old.
Randy gets onto his knees, looking at RVD with a look of anger, before pushing up to his vertical base. He and Van Dam stare across at each other, with both realising this is going to be a long hard night, before locking up again. Orton goes behind, and trips down RVD, going for an arm, but Van Dam quickly wriggles free from Orton, before he can apply any submissions, which might effect him later.
RVD walks around the ring, looking across at Orton, who looks hungry for a war tonight. They lock up again, and this time, Van Dam takes down Randy, with a drop toe hold, before riding around Orton, and slapping him around the head a few times, before getting up, to a chorus of boo’s from New Hampshire. RVD laughs, and spits his gum into the crowd, getting another negative reaction from the fans.
Orton reaches his feet on the other side of the ring, clearly annoyed at Van Dams lack of respect after the previous moment in the match. Rob shows no sorrow for it, with Orton not looking terribly shocked by it. Both men walk to the centre of the ring, with RVD immediately slapping Randy across the face, as soon as he could reach. Orton is sent back a little, not expecting the shot, with Van Dam slapping again. Orton then grabs Van Dams arm the third time, and takes him down by the arm, before dropping a knee. RVD rolls over, and Orton decides to repay the favour from earlier, riding around him, showing disrespect, slapping him around the head.
Van Dam is furious, and jumps up, going after Orton, but Randy is ready for him, and meets him with a right hand. RVD falls into the ropes, and comes back out at Orton, with Orton going for a spinebuster, only for RVD to break free, and take Randy down with a Monkey Flip.
Rob Van Dam then quickly bounces off the ropes, and meets Orton, who is back to his feet, with a dropkick, 1...2...Kick Out. Swiftly Rob picks Orton up, but the legend killer, cradles RVD, 1...2...Kick Out, Van Dam rolls through, 1...2...Kick Out. Orton then breaks the hold, and rolls up RVD, 1...2...Kick Out. RVD rolls through, 1...2...Kick Out, Orton counters into a bridge, 1...2...Kick Out. RVD uses his strength to power out of the bridge, then backslides Orton, 1...2...Kick Out. Randy Orton flips out, and rolls up RVD, 1...2...Kick Out!! Both men jump to their feet, and get a massive ovation from Manchester, New Hampshire.
Orton quickly whips Van Dam off the ropes, but RVD ducks a clothesline, comes back off the ropes, and knocks down Orton with a spinning heel kick. Van Dam takes a look, and sees the clock ticking down, then as he knows it will be one of his team mates out next, he applies a simple chin lock, just to wear down Orton, until his next team mate enters.


… 10 … 9 … 8 … 7 … 6 … 5 … 4 … 3 … 2 … 1 …

… BUZZER …


**Unleashed Rage**

ENTRANT #3 - BATISTA - 03:00

Batista enters, but doesn’t bother with his usual pre match posing, instead, running straight to the ring, to make the most of the 2 on 1 advantage for three minutes.


Jim Ross:
Business, has just picked up Coach.


The Coach:
Randy Orton will have to survive these next three minutes J.R, he will have to hang on for dear life, until he can get some back up.


The door opens, and Batista enters war games, and watches, as RVD wears down the Legend Killer in the chin lock. Van Dam tells Batista to kick Orton, which he does, bouncing off the ropes, sticking his boot into Ortons face. Van Dam releases the chin lock, and gets up, as Batista takes over, dropping an elbow on the fatigued opponent. RVD comes back over, and helps pick Orton up, then whips Orton off the ropes, with Batista shoulder blocking Orton down. He gets down, with a lateral press, 1...2...Kick Out.

Batista gets back up, and looks to RVD, then drags Orton up, backing him to the corner, and running his shoulder into the sternum of Orton, before whipping the Legend Killer across the ring to the corner. Batista follows in, with a clothesline, crushing Orton in the corner. Batista moves out of the way, with Van Dam charging to the corner, and goes for another Monkey Flip, but this time, Orton pushes him away, and charges out of the corner knocking down Batista with a running clothesline.
Orton falls onto the ropes, with the impact of his clothesline forcing him into the ropes. He watches as RVD gets back up, and quickly gets to him, grabbing RVD by the head, and throws him into the cage wall, with Van Dam stumbling back, falling down. Orton now sees Batista pulling himself up on the ropes, and sees an opportunity, runs at him, and clothesline Batista over the top rope, sending The Animal into the other ring.
The Legend Killer seizes the opportunity, and makes the most of his time to take on RVD one on one, whipping Van Dam back first into the cage, then knocks him down with a reverse elbow. Orton, trying to even things up, looks to hit an RKO, but Van Dam is too fresh at this point, and throws Orton into the cage, face first, with Orton bouncing out, into a knockdown from Van Dam.
RVD straight away charges at Orton, who is just staggering to his feet. Van Dam goes for a clothesline but Orton ducks. Rob then bounces off of the ropes and back at Randy. Then, out of nowhere, Orton gets his foot up and twirls Van Dam around … RKO!!! Orton gets a weak cover on RVD. The ref counts the fall …

……1……

…………2…………
……
…BATISTA DROPS AN ELBOW BUT ORTON MOVES, AND DAVE NAILS RVD INSTEAD…

Orton has no time to delay as he springs to his feet and clotheslines Batista over the top rope and back into the other ring. Orton then turns his attention back to Van Dam and lifts him to his feet. Orton throws a stinging right hand on RVD which sends him into the corner. Randy then gets onto the second rope and begins to pound away at Robs head. The crowd chant along with Orton as he smashes RVD head with repeated right hands, up until the count of seven, until Batista suddenly grabs a hold of Ortons legs and lifts him onto his shoulders, dropping down with the Electric Chair. He hooks the leg, 1...2...Orton gets a shoulder up.

RVD recover, and pats Batista on the back, giving him a thumbs up for helping him out, taking full advantage of their three minutes with a 2 on 1 advantage over the Legend Killer. RVD lifts Orton to his feet and Orton staggers back into the Animal, who knocks him down with a vicious shot to the back of the head, sending Orton flat down. RVD then tries to drop a leg on Orton, but Randy rolls out of the way. Orton quickly gets to his feet, side steps a running Batista, with The Animal hitting the cage. Orton knocks Dave down, and takes it to Rob Van Dam. Orton delivers numerous right hands to RVD before slinging him into the ropes. Orton goes for a clothesline but Van Dam rolls off the back before returning off the other side, scoring with a flying lariat!! Van Dam scrambles to his feet and jumps onto the top rope, going for a split legged moonsault, but Orton moves out of the danger zone!!!!
Randy stumbles as he gets up, and doesn’t see the clubbing arm of Batista coming his way, getting sent right back down by The Animal, as the clock winds down for Team Foleys next entrant.



… 10 … 9 … 8 … 7 … 6 … 5 … 4 … 3 … 2 … 1 …

… BUZZER …


**619**

ENTRANT #4 - REY MYSTERIO - 06:00

Rey Mysterio blasts out to a huge ovation from the hot crowd. Rey salutes the fans, before focusing his attention on the ring, and sprints down, looking to help Orton.


Jim Ross:
And here comes the Intercontinental Champion. For the next three minutes, we are back on level terms.


The Coach:
I’m sure Orton would rather see someone like Undertaker running down that aisle, rather than some child.


Mysterio enters and RVD immediately turns to face him. RVD and Rey stare into each other’s eyes, neither moving nor blinking, as the fans come alive, with the recent history between the two set to erupt once again. Out of nowhere, Batista dives straight at Mysterio but the Intercontinental Champion leapfrogs and Batista flies into the cage wall!! Mysterio and Van Dam then go at it, punch for punch, neither gaining an advantage. RVD goes for a spin kick, but Rey quickly ducks, sweeps the leg of RVD, then runs into the ropes, bouncing back out, leaps over RVD, and whilst in mid air, catches Batista, and hit’s a flying head scissors.

Mysterio gets back up, runs past RVD, and jumps onto the ropes, launching back with a moonsault, taking RVD down, 1...2...Kick Out. Rey gets to his feet again, bounces off the ropes, runs past RVD, and dropkicks the back of Batista, sending him to the second ring. Now Orton is back up, and hugs Mysterio, being happy to have back up now in the match. Rey and Orton stomp Van Dam in the corner, with Rey watching Batista in the other ring. He quickly jumps to the top rope, and springboards off the top, but gets caught by Dave, who flips Mysterio onto his shoulders, and lawn darts Rey into the cage.
Rey slumps against the ropes, as Batista quickly picks him back up, and press slams Mysterio onto the two sets of ropes connecting the two rings. The fans lets out a big ‘OOOOO’ as Batista gets back into the ring with Orton and Van Dam, and helps out his team mate, punching the ribs of Orton. Batista whips Orton off the ropes, and hit’s a back body drop. Batista covers, 1...2...Kick Out.
Van Dam and Batista toy with Orton and take turns to give the Legend Killer, a slap across the face. The two members of Team Flair now decide to try and get rid of Orton before Rey recovers, and go for a double back suplex, but Orton rolls through, and bounces off the ropes. RVD and Batista lower their heads waiting for him to come back, but he gets down on one leg and hit’s an uppercut on both men. Orton waits as his two opponents get up, and then clotheslines Batista, and nails a front slam on Van Dam. Orton keeps up his comeback, and nails a DDT on Batista, and a big European uppercut to RVD, sending Van Dam into the corner. Orton follows in, firing as many right hands as possible to Rob Van Dam.
Orton whips RVD across the ring, to the opposite corner, and looks to follow in, but as he runs across, he is cut off by Batista with a spear!!! Batista hooks the leg quickly, 1...2...Kick Out from Orton!!! Batista gets back up, not dallying over the kick out. He whips Orton into the corner, and then gives RVD a shout, before he joins Dave, and the two men take turns in slamming Ortons face into the steel cage, somehow not busting him open.
The two men now pick Orton up, in sync, and hold Orton in the air, before dropping him down, executing a text book double suplex. RVD and Batista get back up, and turn around, not seeing Rey Mysterio spring boarding onto the ropes, bouncing off, knocking both men down with a springboard clothesline from the ropes!!! Rey gets up, looks around and sees Batista getting up, then bounces off the ropes, dropkicking the knee of The Animal. RVD is back up, and he comes at Rey, but Mysterio low bridges the ropes, and Van Dam flies into the second ring. Mysterio sees Batista in the corner, sat down, and sees an opening, running to the corner, and executing a bronco buster!!!
Mysterio gets up, and sees RVD stepping back inside the ring, only for him to be cut off by Randy Orton. Orton pounds down RVD, and Rey comes along to help him, as the clock begins to wind down, with the next entrant set to come into the match, with the fans counting down.



… 10 … 9 … 8 … 7 … 6 … 5 … 4 … 3 … 2 … 1 …

… BUZZER …


**Spit in the Face**

ENTRANT #5 - CARLITO - 09:00

Carlito enters the arena with Stacy Kiebler, and takes a look around, before handing his apple to Stacy, and jogging down the aisle, whilst Stacey leaves up the ramp again.


Jim Ross:
Back to a one man advantage for Team Evolution, with Carlito on his way to the ring.


The Coach:
And that … is cool.


Carlito surveys the damage in the ring, with Orton and Mysterio on top, and decides to take his time, watching his team mate Batista get himself together in the ring, then slowly creeps inside, with Mysterio and Orton distracted by the presence of Batista and RVD. This work out for him, as he attacks Mysterio from behind with an axe handle, and before Orton can get him, Batista attacks Orton from behind.

RVD gets back to his feet and joins his two partners to attack Orton and Rey in the corner. Batista hoists Mysterio up, and delivers him across the ring to the opposite corner. Rob Van Dam sprints across, and unlike last time when he failed with Orton, RVD manages to hit a Monkey Flip. Batista now whips Orton across the ring, into the path of RVD, who hit’s a spinning crescent kick to the legend killer. He gets a lateral press, 1...2...Orton just hangs on.
Carlito rests on the top rope, smiling and nodding, with things going all in favour of Team Flair at this point. He chats with Batista who smiles too, and they try and share a joke with RVD, who still refuses to speak. Van Dam kicks Rey in the chest, and picks him up onto his feet, whipping Mysterio off the ropes, and knocking him back down with a right hand. Batista now steps in, and begins to put the boots to Mysterio. He then signals to RVD its time to eliminate Rey and leave Orton on his own. Batista drags Rey up, and whips him off the ropes, and goes for the spine buster, but Mysterio shifts his weight in mid air, and counters into a bulldog!!!
The fans pop as Mysterio saves himself from a defeat. He tries to get up, and he punches RVD away, only for Carlito to come from behind, with a knee to the back. CCC grabs Rey by the mask, and slams him head first onto the canvas, sending him back down. Meanwhile, Randy Orton gets back to his feet, and starts coming for RVD, giving Van Dam a number of straight right hands, but once again, the numbers game comes into play, and RVD is saved by Carlito, who hit’s a well timed swinging neck breaker from behind Orton. He goes for a cover, 1...2...Orton elevates his shoulder!!!
Van Dam looks to keep the pressure on, and runs off the ropes, coming back with a leg drop, quickly hooking the leg, 1...2...Orton kicks out once again. Right now, the two members of Team Foley are hanging on by a thread, with Team Flair in total control. In the other corner, Batista is taking his frustrations out on the Intercontinental Champion, driving his knee into the mid section of Rey, as well as driving his shoulder into the same region, taking the breath of Mysterio away, looking to gain some revenge for the bulldog a minute or so ago.
Carlito chokes Orton in the corner, with RVD watching on, making sure Orton doesn’t make any comebacks. Carlito gets to his feet, and starts to choke the Legend Killer with his boot now, all the while taunting the fans, with some in the front row, giving him a piece of their mind. Batista now takes Rey into the second ring, and grabs Rey by the tights, before ramming him, head first into the cage wall. Rey staggers out, into a sidewalk slam from Batista, who hooks the leg, 1...2...Kick Out.
Batista looks quite angry that he cant put Mysterio down for a three count, and drags the I.C Champ up by the mask, before lifting him into position for a press slam, before launching Mysterio into the cage. Reys body bounces off the cage, and lands hard on the canvas. Batista gets a foot on Mysterio, going for a very cocky pin, 1...2...REY KICKS OUT!!! Batista has a wry smile on his face, and shakes his head, before waving off Rey, and stepping back inside the main ring, which has been used for the match.
Batista helps pound down a totally dominated Orton, along with Carlito and RVD, who have worked perfectly together up to this point, with Orton possibly on the brink. Carlito taps RVD on the shoulder, and points out the clock running down. RVD quickly tries to cover Orton, and keep the man advantage before Team Foley has another member, but Orton rolls away, not allowing RVD to cover him. RVD stomps Randy, and the fans count down the clock…



… 10 … 9 … 8 … 7 … 6 … 5 … 4 … 3 … 2 … 1 …

… BUZZER …


**Dead or Alive**

ENTRANT #6 - MICK FOLEY - 12:00

The familiar music of Cactus Jack plays into the arena to a huge pop. Mick Foley enters the arena, with the classic ‘Wanted’ Shirt, carrying a dust bin full of weapons. He makes the ‘Bang Bang’ signal, with the fans responding, as if it were a WOOO.


Jim Ross:
Here comes the Raw General Manager, but is it for the last time?? Foley is throwing himself in at the deep end, and showing his guts, whilst Ric Flair has yet to appear.


The Coach:
Strategy J.R, strategy. The Nature Boy has a plan, and I know right now, its better than Foleys.


Foley walks down the ramp, as Batista, Carlito and RVD watch him, carrying the dust bin of weapons, and motion to stand by the door and meet him as he comes in, but from this, they take their attention from the other two opponents, and this allows Randy Orton to chop block Batista down, whilst Rey springboards off the ropes, and dropkicks the back of Rob Van Dam, knocking him over. Carlito looks around, and looks quite afraid now, with his two partners down, and him alone.

Mick Foley enters War Games to a huge ovation, immediately making his mark, smashing a baking tray over the head of Carlito. CCC sprawls along the canvas, whilst Rey quickly pats Foley, and Orton nods to the GM. Mick Foley follows RVD into the corner, and opens up with right hands, at high speed, with RVD slumping onto the canvas. Foley walks around the ring, throwing up the ‘Bang, Bang’ salute, before sprinting to the corner, driving a knee to the face of Van Dam.
The momentum has begun to swing in favour of Team Foley, with the GM turning it up a notch with a job at stake. Foley knocks down Batista with a clothesline, knocks down Carlito with a clothesline, and hit’s a hip toss on Van Dam. Foley watches as Carlito gets up, and runs at him, hitting a Cactus clothesline, sending both himself and Carlito over the top rope, but with the second ring adjoining, the two men land badly, and end up in the apron between the rings.
Randy Orton and Rey Mysterio take it to RVD and Batista In the first ring, with Orton pounding the chest of Batista, beating him with forearms, whilst Mysterio even plays dirty, choking Van Dam in the ropes. Rey runs off the ropes, comes back, looking for a front dropkick, but RVD moves, and Mysterio gets caught in the ropes. Orton stomps down The Animal, showing his mean streak, whilst RVD takes a steel chair from the trash can.
Van Dam smashes the chair on the mat, then looks to Mysterio. He waits until Rey gets up, and then throws him the chair. Mysterio catches, and RVD goes for the Van Daminator, but Rey ducks, throws the chair at RVD, who catches it, and Rey goes for a kick, but this time Van Dam moves, throws the chair at Rey, but as the Intercontinental Champion catches it, he retaliates, and hits RVD with it, crashing against the leg of Van Dam before he can connect with the Van Daminator.
Meanwhile, Mick Foley crawls back through the ropes, into the ring, whilst Carlito still looks woozy, lying between the rings. Randy Orton smashes a trash can lid on the back of Batista, whilst Mysterio hit’s a standing moonsault, with a cover, 1...2...Kick Out. Mick Foley follows in, and drops an elbow on RVD, and he hooks the leg, 1...2...Kick Out. Whilst Foley and Rey beat down RVD, they leave Orton open to a two on one, as Carlito comes to the rescue for Batista on the opposite side of the ring. He clubs the back of The Legend Killer, then whips him off the ropes, and knocks him down with a reverse elbow. Carlito quickly hooks the leg, looking to get Team Flair the first elimination, 1...2...Kick Out from Orton!!!
By now, Foley and Mysterio have noticed the attack, and Mysterio leaves Mick to take care of Van Dam. Rey runs off the ropes, and cannonballs into the mid section of Carlito knocking him down. Rey then leaps onto the ropes, and goes for a seated senton, but Carlito catches him, and hits an Alley Oop into the cage wall!!!! Mysterio hit’s the cage full on, splatting against the structure. Carlito smiles, and goes back to work on Orton, but Randy takes him by surprise with a cradle … 1...2...KICK OUT!!! The clock winds down from ten, with Orton knocking down CCC.



… 10 … 9 … 8 … 7 … 6 … 5 … 4 … 3 … 2 … 1 …

… BUZZER …


**Just Close Your Eyes**

ENTRANT #7 - CHRISTIAN - 15:00

Christian enters the arena, alone. Captain Charisma doesn’t look too worried as he walks to the ring rather confident, posing to the fans.


Jim Ross:
Here comes the man on a roll. Christian, or Captain Charisma if you will, is certainly a man that could win this match for Team Evolution.


The Coach:
He holds more victories over The Undertaker than anyone in history, and J.R, I think Christian might be the difference maker, especially at this stage with 3 on 2.


Christian slides in with the door open, and dips down into the trash can, pulling out a Kendo Stick. Christian waits, as Foley is turning around … and nails the Hardcore Legend with the weapon, right across the face!!! Christian drops the kendo stick, and picks up the steel chair, lining up Orton, but Randy sees Captain Charisma coming, and manages to dive out of the way, leading to Christian hitting Carlito instead!!!! The impact of the chair shot is enough to send CCC through the ropes, into the second ring.

Captain Charisma turns back around, but has the steel chair wrestled away from him by Randy Orton. Christian blocks the chair shot from Orton, and tries to take the chair from the Legend Killer. Whilst Christian and Orton battle for the steel chair, Batista and RVD put the boots to Mick Foley, and Rey Mysterio tries to make it back to his feet, whilst Carlito is alone in the other ring, feeling the effects of the chair shot.
Christian kicks Orton in the gut, and takes the chair, but before he can hit Randy with the weapon, Orton charges him into the corner. Christian drops the chair, and Orton pulls Christian out of the corner, hitting a hip toss. Orton picks up the chair, and sees Batista looking to hit the Batista Bomb on Foley, and decides to stop him first, which he does, nailing The Animal across the back, before smashing the chair into the cranium of RVD.
Orton watches as Christian gets up, and waits, before cracking the skull with the chair on Christian, who falls into the ropes, with Orton throwing the chair into the other ring, with the emotion taking over. Mysterio spots Captain Charisma in perfect position for a 619, and calls for it, with the fans cheering the Intercontinental Champion. Orton goes to work on RVD, as Rey runs off the ropes, and hit’s the 619!!! He watches as Christian rolls around the mat, and leaps to the top rope looking for a West Coast Pop, but from the second ring, behind Rey, Carlito, with the chair Orton discarded moments ago smashes the chair across the back of Rey, knocking him off the ropes, and into the path of a recovered Batista, who delivers the Batista Bomb!!!!! Batista hooks the leg of Mysterio…

Eliminated: Rey Mysterio by Batista @ 16:49


Team Foley are at a 4 on 2 disadvantage now for the time being, with Rey Mysterio becoming the first victim of this match. Mysterio crawls towards the door, knowing he has been beaten, whilst Batista goes to work on Foley, whilst Orton and RVD continue to tangle. Christian tries to get back up, and make the most of Team Flairs advantage, whilst Carlito gets back into the first ring, and the 4 on 2 advantage begins to take effect, with Christian helping Batista, and Carlito coming to the aide of RVD.

Van Dam drags Orton out of the corner, and whips him off the ropes, with him and Carlito waiting for Orton to return, and as he does, they both launch him into the cage wall. Orton staggers out, into a clothesline from CCC. In the other corner, Batista and Christian take Foley into the second ring, with Batista doing the work, and Captain Charisma doing the bad mouthing at Foley. We see Foley has been busted open ever so slightly from the number of right hands he has sustained from Batista, but The Animal and Christian make sure to open the wound further, meshing Foleys face against the steel, getting the cheese grater effect.
Back in the other ring, Carlito catapults Randy Orton into the steel, with RVD following in with a dropkick to the back, sending Ortons face to ricochet into the steel again. Orton staggers out, with Carlito hitting a side Russian Leg Sweep, taking the Legend Killer down. RVD motions for CCC to move out of the way, and we see Van Dam drag Orton to the corner, setting a chair in the chest area of Orton. RVD then walks across the ring, and climbs the ropes, as J.R and Coach speculate he may be setting Orton up for the Van Terminator. He gets to the top rope, composes himself, and FLIES THROUGH THE AIR … CONNECTING WITH IT!!!!
Surely, Randy Orton is beaten. The Legend Killer is busted WIDE open from the Van Terminator, whilst Rob Van Dam rolls around the ring, as Carlito drags Orton out of the corner, into the centre of the ring. CCC drops to his knees looking to get a cover, but Rob Van Dam pushes Carlito away, wanting the glory himself. He hooks the leg, to make it a 4 on 1 advantage for Team Flair …

Rob Van Dam bangs his head off the canvas, ready to go nuts, with Randy Orton digging down deep to stay in the match, showing the grit and determination to help Mick Foley. Carlito stomps Orton, not wanting him to recover, as the clock ticks down for the next entrant…

ENTRANT #8 - EUGENE - 18:00

Eugene enters, waving to the fans, pointing to his sticker with his name on it, before having trouble taking his jacket off, and throws it into the crowd. He points to the ring, and nods, before starting to jog to the cage.


Jim Ross:
He has been referred to as the weak link, but Eugene is a special talent, and could well take a few people by surprise, if he is underestimated. Mick Foley picked him, on his desire, and heart alone, and that has to be admired.


The Coach:
I hope Eugene gets some sense beat into him. Any will be an improvement.


Carlito points towards Eugene, as he sees him run to the ring, with RVD waving it off, as if to say not to worry about him. Van Dam and Carlito continue to put the boots to a bloody Orton, whilst Mick Foley hangs in there from a methodical beat down from Batista and Christian in the second ring. Eugene steps into the cage, with neither RVD or CCC taking any notice of him, and they pay for that, with Eugene coming from behind, dropping to his knees, and giggling, before planting both CCC and Van Dam with a double low blow!!!

RVD and Carlito drop to the knees, and roll around, with Eugene walking on all fours, head butting Van Dam, head butting Carlito, then pretending to urinate like a dog on RVD, and the same to CCC. He then gets to his feet, but is met by Captain Charisma, who has re-entered the first ring, and he clubs the back of Eugene, which is no sold by Eugene. Christian doesn’t look worried, but does look angered. He throws a few right hands, and Eugene shrugs them off, before starting to Hulk Up.
Christian mouths the words ‘Give me a break’ before throwing a big right, which is blocked by Eugene. Eugene stands in the face of Christian, and points his finger at him, before wiggling it, ala Hulk Hogan. Christian drives a knee into the abdominal region of Eugene, then whips him off the ropes, but Eugene comes back, blocks a right hand, and throws three of his own, before whipping CC off the ropes, hitting a big boot. Eugene then cups his ear to the fans, and bounces off the ropes, scoring with the Immortal Leg Drop!!! Eugene hooks the leg of Christian …

……1……

…………2…………

…CARLITO BREAKS THE COUNT…
!!!!!
Christian is saved from a humiliating elimination, by Carlito. Eugene though is still on fire, and he blocks a shot from Carlito, before ramming Christian and Carlitos heads together for a meeting of the minds. He then throws a right at Carlito, a right at Christian, right at Carlito, right at Christian, starting some flipping and flopping, before hitting a bionic elbow, on Christian, followed by an bionic elbow on Carlito, which knocks both men down, with Eugene imitating the great Dusty Rhodes.
Rob Van Dam stops the momentum for Eugene, with a trash can lid shot to the back. He looks to his him again, but Orton grabs the can, yanks it out of the hands of RVD, and nails Van Dam!!! Eugene jumps up on down from the excitement, before pointing at Orton, and imitating the destiny pose, before going back to work on Christian. Orton whips Carlito into the corner, whilst RVD rolls to the ropes trying to get back up.
In the opposite ring, Mick Foley begins to fire up on Batista, fighting out of the corner, but just as he looks to be getting the best of Batista, The Animal rakes the General Managers eyes, and runs him into the cage again, further opening the wound on Foleys head. Batista picks Foley up, onto his shoulders, and runs across the ring, dropping Foley on the top rope, hitting snake eyes, then kicks a staggering Foley in the gut, pulling the Raw GM in for a Batista Bomb, but in an act of desperation, Foley drops onto one knee, and hit’s a low blow.
Back in the first ring, Orton and Carlito exchange blows, whilst RVD gets back up, picking up the Kendo Stick that Christian introduced, but as he aims for Eugene, the little guy ducks down to tie his lace, and RVD clocks Christian instead. Van Dam stands in shock, as Christian feels the pain from the whip like shot, walking around the ring, holding the ropes. RVD turns around, and suffers a poke in the eye from Eugene, followed by a well hidden low blow, sending RVD onto his knees.
Eugene struts around the ring, now imitating The Nature Boy. He runs off the ropes, and drops an elbow across the back of RVD, then gets up, and sees Captain Charisma still feeling the effects of the kendo stick. Eugene gets up, and walks to the corner, hitting a chop to Christian, giving out a big WOOO, and gets one back from the fans. He whips Christian across the ring, and follows in with a low dropkick, with Christian staggering out of the corner. Eugene follows Christian around, imitating his staggering, then Christian flops to the mat, with Eugene imitating, getting a roar of laughter from the fans.
Orton meanwhile, whips Carlito off the ropes, and levels him with a dropkick, scrambling into a hook of the near leg, 1...2...Kick Out. A bloody Orton looks up, with the referee pointing two fingers at him. Randy then looks around, and sees Batista back in control of Mick Foley, choking him at the ropes, and decides to give Foley some help.
The Legend Killer steps through the ropes, and is met by Batista, with the two men exchanging blows, with the clock winding down for the imminent arrival of the final member of Team Flair … Ric Flair himself.



… 10 … 9 … 8 … 7 … 6 … 5 … 4 … 3 … 2 … 1 …

**Space Odyssey 3000**

ENTRANT #9 - RIC FLAIR - 21:00

Ric Flair enters the arena to a huge amount of ‘WOOOO’ chants from the New Hampshire crowd. He struts down the aisle, looking very confident, with nerves not showing, entering at such a late stage.


Jim Ross:
Ric Flair has left himself last. How selfish a decision is that??


The Coach:
Not selfish J.R, smart. Team Flair could get the rest of Team Foley outta here in the next three minutes with this advantage.


The Nature Boy takes his time coming to the ring, taking the time to enrobe, and pose at the fans, whilst in the rings, Orton gets the better of Batista, whipping him off the ropes, hitting a back body drop. Eugene grabs Carlito by the hair, and launches him into the cage, before throwing him over the ropes, into the second ring. Flair takes a chair from ringside, then slowly steps inside, back into a match he knows all to well. Naitch tries to creep in, but Eugene sees Flair coming.

Flair tries to beg off, telling Eugene he just wants to be his friend. Eugene looks confused as to what to do, and becomes even more confused, as Flair offers him the chair. Eugene scratches his head, and screws up his face, before accepting the weapon. He holds it up, with Flair still begging off, but now smiling. Ric then points for Eugene to look behind him. Eugene turns around … AND GETS LEVELLED WITH A VAN DAMINATOR, AS THE CHAIR SMASHES INTO HIS FACE!!!
Flair laughs and nods, shaking hands with RVD, who leaps to the top rope, does his thumb salute, and leaps off the ropes, CONNECTING WITH THE FIVE STAR FROG SPLASH!!!!! RVD rolls into a cover, whilst Flair and Christian cut Foley and Orton off from getting in to break the count…

Eliminated: Eugene by Rob Van Dam @ 22:23


It’s now 5 on 2 for the next 90 seconds and change, with Eugene eliminated from the match. Jim Ross and Coach discuss that the decision to put Eugene in the match has definitely backfired for Foley, as Christian rolls Eugene out through the door, adding a few kicks just for the hell of it.

Ric Flair steps into the second ring, looking at a battered Mick Foley, whilst he is as fresh as a daisy. Flair looks down at the bloody GM, and tells the rest of his men to leave Foley to him. The remaining four members then look towards a bloody Orton, who has been in the match from the get go. RVD is told by Batista to take a moment to rest, after he has been in from the start too. RVD gives a thumbs up, and looks around the ring, almost as a watchman incase something doesn’t go to plan, despite everything falling into place for Team Flair at this point.
The Nature Boy drags Foley up in the corner, and grabs him by the face, talking smack, with Foley responding with a spit to the face of Flair. Flair takes a step back, wipes the spit from his face, and comes at Foley, but Mick stops him with a right hand, and a second, a third, fourth, then knocks him down with a big left hand. Foley waits as Flair gets back up, and looks set to knock him down again, but instead, he gets hit behind the head with the trash can by RVD.
Van Dam stomps the Raw General Manager, whilst Ric Flair gathers himself, getting back up. He orders Van Dam to get Foley in the corner, which RVD does, allowing Ric Flair to open up with a dozen chops to the chest of Mick Foley, taking the breath from Foley.
In the other corner, Randy Orton has valiantly tried to fight his way out of the corner, and despite looking set to overcome the odds, but in the end, the numbers are too much for the Legend Killer, and Orton cant take on three men, who beat him to a pulp in the corner. Just over ten seconds remain, as the final entrant is set to enter, and the fans stir into a frenzy for The Undertaker, as the clock looks set to wind down …

**GONG…GONG…GONG**

ENTRANT #10 - UNDERTAKER - 24:00

The Undertaker’s music plays, and the Deadman makes his way to the ring, slowly, as always.


Jim Ross:
OHHHH MY!!! There is a chill in the air. The last man to enter War Games, The Undertaker, and what an impact he could make.


The Coach:
By the time The Deadman makes it to the ring, this match will be over anyway!!!


The Undertaker methodically walks towards War Games, as the five members of Team Flair start to look desperate to eliminate at least one of Orton and Foley, before the Deadman makes it to the ring. Ric Flair and Rob Van Dam hit a double side suplex on a crimson Foley, with Flair hooking the leg, 1...2...Kick Out from Foley. In the other corner, Batista chokes Orton, before Christian takes over, and hooks Orton up, hitting a reverse DDT. Christian covers, whilst Carlito and Batista look on, 1...2...ORTON JUST GETS A SHOULDER UP IN TIME.

The music of The Undertaker continues to play as the Deadman saunters to the ring, whilst the action continues. Flair starts to get the word to his men to meet Taker once he gets in, and to make sure Foley stays down for the time being, Flair runs Mick into the cage once more, whilst Batista presses Orton over his head and presses him into the cage roof, before dropping him, front first. Now, Ric Flair gathers his troops, and they step into the first ring again, as The Phenom steps up the steps, and waits as the door opens, taking off his jacket, and hat, before stepping into the ring.
Christian is first to meet him, brimming with confidence, after all his victories over Taker in recent months, but Taker, swats Christian away like a fly. RVD is next, but Taker knocks him down with a big right soup bone. Batista charges, but Taker clotheslines him down. Carlito looks to run at him, then changes his mind, but Taker grabs him by the hair, and fires Carlito across the ring, into the cage!!! Ric Flair chops Taker, but to no effect, and Taker grabs Flair by the throat, but in the nick of time, Batista and Christian save Naitch, with clubbing blows to the back.
Taker tries to take both men on, only for Ric Flair to grab a chair, and plant it across the back of The Deadman. Taker goes down, onto a knee, whilst Christian runs off the ropes, coming back, dropkicking the face of The Undertaker. Taker stumbles back, into the ropes, but gets up, only to get knocked down with a trash can lid by Carlito. Rob Van Dam picks up the chair, and quickly makes the most of the grounded Deadman, hitting rolling thunder with the steel chair. Taker doesn’t move, as the group agree to get Taker back up. Christian, Carlito and RVD drags the Phenom up, and Batista then picks him up, onto his shoulders, delivering a power slam, showing his animalistic power.
Ric Flair now spots Foley and Orton getting to their feet, and tells the rest of his team to leave Taker for now, and get back to the other two, when suddenly … THE UNDERTAKER SITS UP!!! Team Flair all take a step back, watching in awe, as The Deadman gets to his feet. Flair runs at him … knocked down. RVD runs at him … knocked down. Carlito goes down, Christian goes down, and Batista even falls to The Deadman, who begins to clean house. The Undertaker whips Flair off the ropes, and nearly takes his head off with a big boot to the face!!!!!
Carlito tries to attack, but Taker kicks him in the gut, bounces off the ropes, and hit’s a devastating running DDT. Christian charges at The Deadman, but gets back body dropped from one ring, into the other!!!! Batista gets knocked down again with a right hand, and The Deadman knocks Rob Van Dam down again, then picks up the steel chair, blasting Batista with it. Dave stumbles into the corner, and Van Dam runs into the hand of Taker, getting choked. Undertaker gets Van Dam up in the air, AND CHOKESLAMS VAN DAM FROM ONE RING, INTO THE OTHER!!!!!
Taker doesn’t relent, and charges at the corner where Batista is, with a big corner clothesline. Taker then runs to the opposite corner, and does the same to Ric Flair, before whipping Flair across the ring, into The Animal. Then, as Flair staggers out, Taker clotheslines him down. Batista staggers out, and into the path of Taker, and The Deadman grabs Batista by the head, throwing him into Carlito, with both falling down.
Ric Flair staggers up, into Taker, and The Deadman grabs Flair by the hair, before running him into the cage. Flair staggers around, but Taker holds on, and whips him, hard, face first into the opposite side of the cage. Flair again staggers out, but again, Taker holds onto him, sending Flair back into the opposite side of the cage. Flair rebounds of the cage, and once more, Taker holds on, before whipping Naitch into the cage. This time, Flair bounces out, busted wide open, and flops to the mat.
The Undertaker takes a look at the carnage, with Orton and Christian battling in the second ring, whilst Foley wears down RVD, when suddenly, Carlito jumps on his back, looking to apply a sleeper, only for Taker to grab him by the hair, and flip Carlito over his head!!! Carlito sits up, grabbing his back, whilst struggling to his feet. He staggers up, and into the path of The Undertaker, who gets him up, and looks around the rings, getting a major pop, before delivering the Tombstone!!!!! Taker covers with the darkness pin…

Eliminated: Carlito by The Undertaker @ 27:34


Finally, Team Foley has eliminated a member of Team Flair!!! Carlito is gone, and the numbers are now 4 on 3. Undertaker grabs Ric Flair by his now crimson tinted hair, and runs him into the cage once more. Flair slumps down, whilst Taker backs Batista into the corner, before opening up with shots to the body, then whips him across the ring, as hard as possible, with Dave whip lashing in the corner, and dropping onto the canvas. Taker meshes Flairs face across the steel cage, further causing blood to pour from The Nature Boys head, but as he turns back around, Carlito smashes him with a steel chair!!!!

The referee orders Carlito out, after his elimination, with CCC more than happy to leave now, now that the damage is done to Taker. He leaves the ring, telling the fans in the front row that was cool, but gets a taste of his own medicine, when a fan spits water or cola, or some mineral at him. Carlito looks genuinely angry, as a road agent orders him up the ramp.
Back in the War Games, Mick Foley works on the leg on Van Dam, and has been for the last few minutes, whilst the other action was going on with Taker in the limelight. He stomps on the leg, whilst on the other side of the ring, Orton and Christian fight back and forth, with Christian now slightly busted open from some shots into the cage. Batista helps Ric Flair back to his feet, before they both put the boots to The Undertaker. Randy Orton goes for a whip on Christian, but Christian reverses, sending the Legend Killer into the ropes, but as he comes back, Orton ducks a forearm from Captain Charisma, then comes off the opposite side, knocking Christian down with a flying forearm of his own!!! Orton hooks the leg, 1...2...Kick Out from Captain Charisma!!!
Mick Foley drags RVD out of the corner, and knocks him down with a big stiff right hand. The GM quickly bounces off the ropes, dropping a leg across the neck of the former ECW TV champion. He hooks the leg, 1...2...Kick Out. Mick drags RVD up to his feet, by the hair, before pushing him into the corner, and unloading with another series of right hands, and once he stops, he pulls RVD out of the corner, and hit’s a Russian leg sweep. Another cover, 1...2...Kick Out from RVD!!! Foley kneels beside Van Dam, and starts pounding with more fury, unloading more stiff right hands, letting out all of his frustration over the face of his opponent, talking to him at the same time, playing mind games.
Ric Flair backs Taker into the corner, and lets fly with a chop, but Taker throws a right, which rocks Flair. Taker looks to comeback, but Batista stops that, and drives a knee into the mid section of The Deadman. This means we go back to the two on one attack of The Phenom. Batista and Flair hit a double flapjack on Taker, before both men enter the second ring, looking to help their two compares, who are in a bit of danger at the moment.
Flair obviously wants a piece of Foley, especially when the General Managers back is turned, and hit’s a knee to the back of Foley, shifting the momentum for Team Flair. Batista also attacks Orton, helping Christian get back on top, with clubbing blows to the back of Orton. The Undertaker is back up, but as he gets into the second ring, he is cut off by Christian and Van Dam, who simultaneously throw shots at Taker, backing him into the first ring again. Batista wears down Randy Orton with basic blows to the back, before throwing Orton into the ropes, and goes for a clothesline, but Orton ducks, AND GOES FOR THE RKO … BUT BATISTA LAUNCHES HIM ACROSS THE RING … INTO THE REFEREE!!!!!
The official has been taken out of action, leaving the inmates to run the asylum inside the double ringed war games. Ric Flair continues to beat on Mick Foley, and runs him into the cage. Flair spots the referee down, and has an idea almost immediately. The Nature Boy walks towards the referee, and digs into his pocket … taking the key for the padlock on the cage door!!!!!
Flair knocks Foley down, before stepping through the ropes, walking towards the door. He helps Christian and RVD knock down the Undertaker, wrapping the key chain around his knuckles, striking Taker. Flair now takes the padlock, and opens the cage door, stepping out of the ring. He pushes the official on the outside to the floor, and walks around ringside, looking under the ring, and pulls out a 2 x 4 Wrapped in Barbed Wire!!!! The Nature Boy carries the weapon around the ring, and grabs a steel chair, before walking back around, to the door, with officials now surrounding the cage, ordering Flair to hand the key back over. Naitch does so, with him already having got what he wanted, and he steps back into the ring, but as he steps inside, Mick Foley charges across, and takes Flair down!!! Foley kicks the door back open before the referees can lock the padlock, and steps out of the ring, getting a hug response from the fans who are going buck wild for the GM. Mick reaches down under the apron, and pulls out a sand bag, which usually means it’s a bag of thumbtacks!!!
The General Manager makes his way back inside the cage, with the referees quickly locking the door, not wanting anyone else to get out of the cage before being eliminated. Whilst this has been going on, the action has slowed a little, with Batista working down the back of Orton, and Christian and RVD continue to beat Taker down. Foley is met by Ric Flair, which forces Mick to let go of the sand bag.
Flair doesn’t allow Mick back up, and starts to place his boot directly at the kidney area of Foley, as he climbs up the ropes to reach his feet. The GM reaches up, but is backed into the corner by Flair, who chops Foley, first with a knife edge chop, then an open handed chop, before reverting to a knife edge chop, and finally an open handed chop. Flair grabs Foley by the hair, throwing a right hand, and a second, but Foley blocks a third, and strikes back, sending Flair back, into the ropes.
Foley follows in, and watches as Ric backs into the corner, begging off from Foley. The General Manager doesn’t fall for the trick, and kicks Flair in the face. He drags Naitch up to his feet, and whips him hard into the corner, with Flair tumbling onto the top, before falling back off, staggering around the ring, before getting knocked down with a vicious right hand from Foley!!! Mick Foley looks around the arena, with some ‘Bang, Bang’ chants ringing around the Verizon Wireless. Flair is slow to his feet, and is met with a kick to the gut, from his opponent, with Mick following up with his pulling piledriver!!! That could do it right now, with the now recovered official getting down to count a fall, but instead, Foley stays up, shaking his head. Mick picks up the 2x4 Wrapped in Barbed Wire, and raises it up in the air to a raucous ovation. Foley stands over Flair, almost looking to put the fear of God into Naitch.
Rob Van Dam spots it, and looks to save Flair, but as he grabs Foley by his charity shop like shirt, but Foley turns around, swinging the 2 x 4 striking RVD in the face, sending Van Dam sprawling across the ring, holding his face, which is sure to be busted open from the barbed wire. Mick Foley takes a look around, and flips, going for Christian, striking Captain Charisma across the back with the weapon!!! He turns back around, seeing Flair struggle up, and callously strikes his enemy with the Barbed Wire!!!!
Immediately, Flair is busted even wider open. Foley stands on the middle rope, holding the 2 x 4 in the air to a wonderful ovation. Naitch, dripping with claret, crawls into the second ring. Foley is right after him, stomping the legend. He drags Flair up, onto his knees, looking deep into the 16 time champions eyes, which appear to have a far away look, and begins to pound at the open wound, further busting him open. Foley winds back, for one more shot, but from behind, Batista saves Flair, and … LOW BLOWS CACTUS!!!
Batista helps up Flair, as Naitch grabs the 2x4, and rams the wood into Foleys groin area, sending Foley onto his knees. Ric Flair pulls back, and crashes the 2x4 across the back of his adversary, and a second time, before throwing the weapon to the canvas. Flair stumbles up, but is helped to his feet by The Animal, then Ric looks down at a vulnerable Mick Foley, before coming off the ropes, and drops his knee into the face of the General Manager.
Ric Flair and Mick Foley are now left in the second ring all alone, whilst Batista, RVD, and Christian from Team Flair are in the other ring with The Undertaker and Randy Orton. Batista oversees as Christian, whose back is punctured from the 2 x 4, and RVD, who has been busted open from the Barbed Wire, take it to Orton and Taker. Christian pounds on Orton, whilst RVD kicks Taker. They look across at each other, and set Taker and Orton up for a double whip, but as they go for it, Orton and Taker both reverse the whip, and send Christian and RVD into each other!!!
Batista comes at Orton and Taker, but the Legend Killer and The Legend team up, with a double clothesline, knocking The Animal down. The Undertaker picks up Batista by the arm, and twists it inside out, before climbing to the top rope, and walks across, leaping off, hitting Old School!!! Rob Van Dam stumbles into the path of Orton, who throws RVD to Taker, who scoops Van Dam up, and into position … LAST RIDE!!!! Taker hooks the leg …

………1………

… CHRISTIAN BREAKS THE COUNT …
!!!!!!!!
Taker switches his attention to Christian, giving Captain Charisma a deathly stare. Christian cowers into the corner, showing as much toughness as a brittle glass. Taker clasps his hand around the throat of Christian, choking the life out of the cocky CC. Batista makes the save for Christian, smashing a steel chair across the back, and the back of the head of The Undertaker. Randy Orton cuts off Batista, and they brawl into the second ring, whilst Christian quickly recovers, and hooks up The Undertaker … UNPRETTIER!!!!!! Christian knows he has Taker beaten, but can only muster an arm over Takers torso …

Eliminated: The Undertaker by Christian @ 36:02


Christian has beaten The Undertaker for the fourth time … … in just four months!!!!! Taker kicks out, but just too late, leaving the numbers 4 for Team Flair on 2 from Team Foley!!! Christian rolls off, looking worn out, his back dripping with blood. The Undertaker sits up, and doesn’t look to retaliate, instead, leaves the ring. Randy Orton and Batista re-enter the first ring, with Orton taking the fight to The Animal, but Rob Van Dam comes to his team mates aid, and attacks Orton. Batista rests up on the ropes, before stepping back into the second ring, where Ric Flair and Mick Foley have been battling back and forth.
The Animal helps Flair regain the momentum on Foley, knocking down Mick with a thunderous running clothesline. Ric Flair pats the arm of his long time friend, before instructing Batista to finish Foley off. Dave nods, and drags a bloody, beaten Mick Foley up, onto his feet, grabbing Foley by the hair, talking smack, before throwing The Hardcore Legend into the cage. He comes bouncing back off the cage, into a chop from Naitch, knocking Foley back down. Ric Flair covers, 1...2...Foley Kicks Out.
Ric kneels down, and picks up the 2 x 4 wrapped in Barbed Wire, looking at the weapon for a few moments, then watches as Foley gets back up, but looks to be in a far away place. Foley wipes blood from his brow, and uses the ropes to reach his feet, but as soon as he gets up, Ric Flair blasts the barbed wire into the mid section, then the back, before swinging at the knee, sending Foley back down onto the canvas, holding his knee now.
The Nature Boy takes the right leg of Mick Foley, kicking the knee, before turning Foley over, and hit’s a leg crank, yanking the leg out of place, with Dave dropping an elbow to further the pain running through Foleys leg. Flair continues to work on Mick Foley, whilst in the first ring, Randy Orton is being held up by Christian, allowing RVD to throw punches at Orton, with the legend killer unable to defend himself. RVD takes a few steps back, and gets cocky, winding up, for his last big shot, but as he comes at Orton, Randy scores with a low blow, in desperation!!!
Van Dam drops down, and Orton breaks free from Christian with a jaw breaker, with Captain Charisma staggering around, eventually walking into Randy, who hits his inverted neck/back breaker. Orton hooks the leg of Christian, looking to capitalize on this opening …

…………2…………

…… VAN DAM SAVES CHRISTIAN ……
!!!!!
Team Foley just seem unable to catch a break at this point, with the numbers game saving Team Flair at every turn. Orton valiantly gets back up, and runs RVD off the ropes, knocking him down with a dropkick, quickly getting a lateral press, 1...2...Broken by Christian!!! Again, the 2 on 1 advantage just comes in the nick of time for Team Flair. Randy gets onto his knees, and throws a number of shots to the stomach area of Christian, but RVD gouges the eye of Orton, stopping his brief spell on top of him and Christian. Christian drags Orton up, and bites his forehead, before dragging The Legend Killer to the cage, rubbing his face into the mesh.
Mick Foley in the other ring, continues to refuse to lay down, fighting as hard as he can to overcome Batista and Flair, knowing the match would be all but over if he or Orton were to be eliminated. It appears The GM is using this as a source of adrenaline, as he somehow finds the strength to get up, and go toe to toe with Flair and Batista. But the will to win can only bring him so far, and the fans can be heard letting out a collective sigh of despair, as his comeback is snuffed out again, this time, with Flair kicking the knee of Mick Foley. Foley drops onto his knee, as Batista runs off the ropes, coming back with a boot to the face of a kneeling Foley. Mick flumps over, with Flair dropping down, getting a tight hook of the leg, 1...2...Kick Out.
Foley rolls over, and the camera spots him spitting up blood from his mouth, having taken a monstrous beating. Batista shows no remorse, and stomps the head of the Raw General Manager, before grabbing Mick by the hair, and to his feet, before ramming Foley into the corner, placing some deep elbows to the sternum of Foley, with blood spitting from the mouth of the battered hardcore legend. Batista drags Foley back out, and whips him off the ropes, picking him up on his way back, and slamming Mick Foley to the canvas with a devastating SPINEBUSTER!!!!! Batista thinks about the cover, and then gets up, offering Flair the cover. Ric claps Batista, and taps him on the chest, before dropping down, and hooking the leg …

………FOLEY KICKS OUT………
!!!!!!
Ric Flairs facial expression is priceless, with Foley rolling onto his front, the blood pouring from his forehead, and mouth, forming a puddle on the canvas, as Ric Flair gets back up. Flair looks to Batista, and tells him to finish him this time for good. Batista nods, then drags Mick Foley, his lifeless body up to his feet again. Foley falls backwards, into the ropes, with Batista following him in, and striking with an open handed slap to the face. He grabs Foley by his face, and looks set to say something, until Foley coughs up blood, trying to speak, eventually getting his words out, saying to The Animal “Is that all you’ve got?? Is that all you’ve got Dave??” Batista slaps the face of Mick Foley venting his anger at Foleys defiance, before hitting a huge biel, putting Foley back onto his back.
The Hardcore Legend rolls around, reaching the corner, still spewing blood like spit. Mick sits in the bottom corner, and looks up at Batista who bears down on him, telling Batista “You’ll have to take me out on a stretcher to beat me. You’ll have to kill me!!” Batista responds to the taunts with a boot to the face, before we see Ric Flair push past him, and bends down at Foley, grabbing Mick by the throat telling him to stay down, but Foley responds to Ric, spitting blood into the face of his enemy, yelling “You’ll have to kill me” Flair gets back to his feet, and tells Batista to take him out. Batista obliges, and drags Foley out of the corner, before picking up him into the air, and delivers another spine buster. The Animal hooks the leg this time…

………FOLEY KICKS OUT………
!!!!!!
Mick Foley would rather literally die, than lay down for Ric Flair!!! Flair pushes past a bedazzled Batista, and chokes the life out of Foley, with the blood coughing out of Foleys mouth. Flair screams, as Foley coughs up more and more blood. Eventually The Nature Boy lets go, and sits beside Foley, almost at a loss for what to do to him next. Mick rolls onto his side, blood still spewing from his mouth, and shouts at Flair “You’ll never keep me down Ric.” Flair yells, as Foleys refusal to lay down and die, as well as the constant mid games are starting to effect him. Flair gets back up, and sticks the sole of his boot onto the forehead of Mick Foley, before looking to the outside, and he points to Bill Alfonso, who reaches into his pocket, pulling out HANDCUFFS!!!
Alfonso manages to squeeze the handcuffs through the small holes in the cage, with Flair taking them from him. He bends over at Foley, and asks him if he remembers the handcuffs from Nemesis. Mick coughs, and then looks at Flair, almost maniacally smiling, before gently replying, whilst coughing up blood, “Is that all you’ve got??” Flairs smile fades, and he kicks Foley in the face, knocking him back over.
In the first ring, Rob Van Dam is in the process of hitting a suplex on Orton, and he then gets up, looks around, before leaping to the top rope, hitting a split legged moonsault!!! He covers, 1...2...Kick Out!!!!! Orton, like Foley refuses to lay down, despite having taken a tremendous beating throughout the match. RVD gets back up, and tells Christian to take care of him, with Captain Charisma walking over to Orton, bending down, talking smack, until Orton quickly takes him by surprise, cradling Christian … 1...2...CHRISTIAN KICKS OUT, JUST IN TIME!!!!! As soon as Christian kicks out, Van Dam is quick to act, and make sure Orton cant mount a comeback, and drops an elbow.
Back in the second ring, Flair and Batista have now handcuffed the defenceless Mick Foley onto the middle rope. Flair grabs Foley by the face, and states to him “We’re gonna finish of Orton … then we’ll finish of you” Mick responds, grimacing now, saying, “It’s a date” Flair looks angered by Foleys lack of fear, but decides not to do anything, until he has an idea. He looks across the ring, and sees the steel chair, then looks back at Foley, who sense what is coming next, then tries to get in Flairs head, telling him “Gimme your best shot”. Flair picks up the chair, and looks across at a defenceless Foley, before charging across the ring, bouncing the steel weapon off the skull of Mick Foley!!! Foley slumps down, whilst Flair and Batista now step into the first ring again, in a bid to take out Orton once and for all.
They join Van Dam and Christian, with the four taking a moment to discuss what they’ll do. Flair asks his three partners to wait a second, as he walks towards Orton, who is pulling himself up on the ropes. Flair keeps a little distance from his former Evolution team mate, before speaking gently to him, and asking Orton if wants to leave, he can go now. Orton, bloody and all, looking at Flair, and looks to the fans, who tell him not to take the offer. Orton looks directly at Ric, then sees Mick Foley handcuffed in the other ring, knowing he has little to no back up now. He looks around again, then puts his head down, takes a deep breath … and charges Flair down, knocking The Nature Boy on his ass, firing right hands, going down with a fight!!!!
Batista, Christian and RVD are quick to act, and they stop Orton, pulling him off their leader, but Orton tries to fight them off, to no avail, with Orton already weakened after 40 minutes and more in the match, unable to beat off four men, none of which having taken the same punishment he has. The three on their feet all take turns in hitting Orton, whilst Flair gets back up, pulling himself together, having being taken by surprise by Orton.
He asks his three partners to make room, as he steps in, and opens up with a knife edge chop to Orton, before grabbing his former protégé, hitting an uppercut, drags Orton out of the corner, and mule kicks Orton down south, with Randy dropping to his knees. Batista, Christian and RVD begin to put the boots to the one member of Team Foley, whilst in the second ring, Mick Foley desperately tries to break the handcuffs in order to come to the aid of Orton, but he is unable to break the steel, and takes more energy from his blood drained body trying to free himself. Christian drags Orton up, and goes behind him, grabbing Randy from behind, before looking at his three partners, then drops Orton with a reverse DDT, following up with a hook of the leg…

………
…………ORTON KICKS OUT…………
!!!
RVD now is next to take a turn to try and eliminate Orton, and he drags Orton up to a vertical base, before hitting a DDT, floating over into a cover, 1...2...ORTON KICKS OUT AGAIN!!!!! Batista looks irate at this point, and he pushes Van Dam out of the way, before dragging Orton up by the hair, and sends his former stable mate into the cage. Orton staggers out, and Batista whips him hard into the opposite side. Orton bounces out, and falls onto Batista, who holds him up, before pushing Orton down by the face. Ric Flair now takes over, and the Nature Boy yanks Ortons leg, before telling his partners it’s time to go to school!!! Flair steps over, and eventually drops down, applying the figure four leg lock!!!!
Randy Orton sits up immediately showing his pain from the submission hold, expertly applied by its master, Ric Flair. The Nature Boy cranks back, looking to increase the pain, whilst in the second ring, Mick Foley continues to struggle and try to break the handcuffs to come and save Orton, but has still no luck in doing it. Foley reaches the meeting between the two rings, and wildly swings his arm, but is about 8 feet short of even reaching Orton with his free arm. He yells at Orton to hang in there, with Randy covering his face with his arm, trying to hide his anguish.
Christian points out Foley, and starts making fun of him, before he, RVD and Batista turn their attention back to Flair, who has Orton caught dead centre in the ring. Randy tries to roll over, but as he looks to be gaining the momentum to do so, Batista kicks him back over, putting him back into increasing pain from Ric Flair. Meanwhile, Foley sticks his free hand down the space between the two rings, and reaches under the ring apron, trying to find anything he can do use for something, whether it is to help Orton, or himself. Foley reaches, and stretches, eventually pulling out a spanner, which is no good to him. He drops it, and reaches back under, eventually pulling out another object … BOLT CUTTERS!!!
Mick looks at the other ring, making sure no one sees him, and pulls the bolt cutters up from the side of the ring, and inside, reaching around, and breaking the handcuffs!!! Foley is free from the ropes!!! He still has one half of the cuffs around his wrist, but he quietly walks across the ring, picking up the 2 x 4 Wrapped in Barbed Wire. Bill Alfonso on the outside tries to alert Team Flair, frantically blowing his whistle, but as RVD turns around, he gets blasted with the barbed wire!!! Batista steps into the second ring, and tries to take Foley down, but Mick swings the 2 x 4 like a baseball bat, scoring a home run with Daves head!!!!! Christian comes next, and he too feels the effects of the 2 x 4 for the second time, this time across his face!!!
The Hardcore Legend has just taken down three members of Team Flair, and stands tall in the second ring, blood dripping from his mouth, before he points the weapon in the direction of Ric Flair, who still has the Figure Four locked in on a fading Randy Orton. Mick steps through the ropes, and climbs into the first ring, quickly climbing to the middle turnbuckle, before flying off with an elbow, driving the 2 x 4 wrapped in Barbed wire into the face of Ric Flair!!!!
Ric Flair releases the Figure Four, and Mick Foley rolls to his knee, throwing up the ‘BANG, BANG’ salute!!! Foley gets up, but has moved to quick, and he is forced to drop to a knee again, with blood literally pouring from his mouth, with the fans looking on, worried about the safety of Foley. Mick takes a moment, and sucks it up, getting back up, with a punctured Flair running at him, but Foley hit’s a back body drop!!! Christian now tries to get back in, but he is cut off before he can by Randy Orton, whilst RVD jumps off the top for a cross body on Mick Foley, but Mick sees him coming, and drives the 2 x 4 into the midsection of Van Dam!!!!
RVD rolls around, as Mick wields his weapon, then drops it, as Van Dam slowly climbs to his feet. Foley hooks him up, and makes sure where to land him, as he drops down … HITTING A DOUBLE ARM DDT ONTO THE BARBED WIRE 2 X 4!!!!! Foley hooks the leg, …

Eliminated: Rob Van Dam by Mick Foley @ 45:24


Ric Flair tries to break the count, but is just too late to do it. Van Dam is eliminated after a long 45 minutes, having entered the match at the beginning, along with Orton. Flair tries to pound down Foley, but Mick is in the zone, past the point of pain, and he absorbs every blow Flair throws, coming back with a bigger one himself. He gets back up, and takes down Flair with a swinging neck breaker. Mick quickly gets back up, feeling the chance to get Flair out of the match. It’s obvious Foley is running on adrenaline now, with blood continuing to just literally flow from his mouth, with his insides surely in a wreck.
Mick picks up the forgotten about sand bag he didn’t get to utilize earlier, and clocks a bloody Ric Flair over the head with it. Foley then sees Batista trying to get in, and does the same to him. Foley now unties the bag, and empties … THUMB TACKS ALL OVER THE RING!!!!! Ric Flair is on dream street from the neck breaker, and has yet to see the tacks. He pulls himself up in the corner, with Mick Foley smelling blood in the water, coming right after the Nature Boy, throwing vicious right hands at his thorn in his side, then drags Ric out of the corner, and continues to through the punches, backing Flair up, with Ric backing closer and closer to the tacks. Foley stops the punches, and runs off the ropes, going for one last big punch … but FLAIR BACK DROPS FOLEY ONTO THE THUMBTACKS!!!!
Ric Flair stumbles into the ropes, drained from the gruelling War Games contest, as Foley sits up, rolling around the thumbtacks, blood continuing to drip from his mouth, and tacks are stuck into his back. Ric Flair bends down, and picks up the 2 x 4 in Barbed Wire, looking at Mick Foley, who tries to pull himself up across the ring, by the ropes, eventually managing to do so. Flair leans back against the ropes, taking in a deep, long breath, then charges across the ring at Foley, but as he swings, Foley ducks, and Flair clocks Batista!!!! Flair turns around, knowing he cant let Foley recover, but he is too late, with Foley meeting him upon his return … WITH A MANDIBLE CLAW!!! Foley has the claw applied, with Flair too weak to fight it, eventually falling onto the mat, his shoulders down, with the referee counting the fall …

Eliminated: Ric Flair by Mick Foley @ 47:00


The gap has been closed to 2 on 2!!!! It’s all evened up in this match, and now, one of the leaders is GONE!!!! Ric Flair is eliminated!!! Mick Foley releases the mandible claw, then rests his head on Flairs torso, sobbing, having put himself through torture tonight by Flair, eventually managing to get the last laugh, and eliminate The Nature Boy. Blood flows from Foleys mouth, onto Flairs stomach, and that rolls onto the canvas. The official rolls Foley off Flair, then begins to roll Ric Flair out of the ring.
Mick Foley is on his knees, his eyes closed, his face drained, his face bloody, and his mouth an absolute mess. Mick sways as he gets up, looking like a drunk after a hard days drinking. He gets up, and is met by Batista who strikes Mick with a pretty weak right hand, but it’s enough to stagger Foley after the punishment he has taken. Batista goes for another, but Foley blocks it … and applies a MANDIBLE CLAW TO BATISTA!!!!!
The Animal is in trouble, immediately dropping to a knee, as Foley looks to try and win this match almost single handedly … BUT RIC FLAIR COMES FROM BEHIND WITH A LOW BLOW!!!! Foley relinquishes the hold, with Ric Flair having illegally got involved again. The referee grabs Flair and orders him out, having had Flair push him away moments ago to get a shot in on Foley. Batista takes a moment to recover, then pulls Foley in between him legs, takes a deep breath, and lifts Foley up in the air … DRIVING HIM DOWN WITH A POWERBOMB … ONTO THE THUMBTACKS … THROUGH THE RING!!!!!!!!!!!!
The fans erupt with a ‘Holy Shit’ chant, as Mick Foleys broken body lays in a decrepit state, having not only been power bombed … not only power bombed onto tacks … but power bombed onto tacks going through the ring!!! Batista slowly pulls Foley out of the hole through the ring, and gets his arms over the Raw General Manager …

Eliminated: Mick Foley by Batista @ 48:07


Neither Ric Flair or Mick Foley will now have the final say, with the odds back in favour of Team Flair. Batista and Christian remain for them, whilst Randy Orton is the only man left for Team Foley. Orton has been in from the beginning, Batista three minutes behind Orton, and Christian has been in the match for a total of 33 minutes. Christian has puncture wounds all over his back, and is busted open, Batista has only a slight cut on his forehead, whilst Orton is a bloody mess, his face resembling a crimson mask.
We see Ric Flair staggering up the ramp, laughing all the way, whilst EMTs run past him, quickly getting into the cage, and tending to Mick Foley. Meanwhile, the other three men have yet to do anything, with Batista still watching in awe, as the paramedics attend to Foley, after what he did, whilst Christian and Orton are both down in the second ring.
Slowly, both Christian and Orton pull themselves up in the ropes, eventually colliding mid ring, going punch for punch, with The Legend Killer coming out on top, backing Christian into the ropes with a flurry of right hands, before whipping Christian off the ropes, meeting him as he comes back with a falling clothesline. Orton looks around, knowing what is being asked of him, as we watch Mick Foley get wheeled up the ramp. Batista enters the ring, and is met by Orton. They go punch for punch, but Batista comes out on top, over the ultra exhausted Orton. Batista whips Randy Orton off the ropes, and connects with a Spinebuster!!! Batista cant capitalize though, and falls into the ropes, his eyes glazing over from exhaustion.
Eventually, Batista reaches his feet, and drags Orton onto his knees, into position for the Batista Bomb. He flips Orton up in the air, but Orton jumps out, landing on his feet, and takes down Batista as he turns around with a quick arm drag, sending Batista across the ring. Orton wipes the blood from his eyes, and follows into the corner. He pounds Batista down, then gets back up, looking fired up, ready to explode at any moment. The referee in the ring then tries to calm him, but Orton thinks it’s Christian from behind, and hit’s the RKO!!!
He turns around, and see’s what he done. He tries reviving him to no prevail, then, from behind, Batista attacks Orton. The Animal throws Orton into the cage, then knocks him down with a clothesline. Batista then signals for the bomb … this time getting Orton up without a fight … and delivers the devastating Batista Bomb!!! Batista yells at the official on the outside to get in and count the fall, knowing he has no time to waste. The official is inclined to make the count, and he unlocks the door, then quickly gets in, climbing from one ring into the other, and makes the count, as Batista hooks the leg … … to make Ric Flair the new GM of Raw …

……KICK OUT!!!!!……

Batista looks at the referee as if to say ‘You’re kidding me’, with Orton surviving the deadly Batista Bomb. Meanwhile, Christian takes the chair, and uses it to help him get up. He lies back against the ropes, and waits for Randy Orton to get up, whilst Batista argues with the referee. Randy, after nearly thirty seconds of trying, finally reaches his vertical base, but not for long, as Christian smashes the chair across his head, with Orton’s head crashing against the cage!! Orton slumps down, and the exhausted Captain Charisma falls down too. Batista spots the moment, and tries to finish the match, pinning Orton …

……1……

…………2…………

……KICK OUT!!!!!……

The arena goes berserk, starting a ‘Lets go Orton’ chant, rallying behind The Legend Killer. Batista gets up, and walks around the ring, almost trying to take in what is happening at this point in time. He grabs the referee by the shirt, arguing that the referee is favouring Orton, giving slow counts to help him kick out in time. Whilst Batista argues, Christian gets back up, taking the chair again, and runs at Orton, who is somehow reaching his feet. Christian runs with the chair, but the Legend Killer moves, and CHRISTIAN HITS BATISTA INSTEAD!!!
Captain Charisma turns around, and pushes Orton away, as he goes for an RKO, then kicks him upon his return, and quickly goes for the Unprettier, but Orton counters with a DDT!!! Orton then NIPS UP!!! The Legend Killer pumps up the fans, clapping his hands together, before laying in wait, and sets up Batista for an RKO, but Batista shows no life. He waits, and waits, with The Animal still not moving. Christian then gets back to his feet, and turns Orton around, but Randy takes him by surprise with an awesome spinning neckbreaker!!! Orton takes the chair, and wails on Christian, with countless shots to the body. He chucks the chair against the cage, then turns around to go after Batista again, but as he does, Christian grabs his foot, stopping him.
Orton kicks him away, and gets to his feet, to go after Batista who continues to climb up to his feet, but again, Christian grabs his foot, trying to distract the legend killer. Orton tries to shrug him off, but Christian headbutts him in the stomach, then gets to his feet, and drags Orton in towards him … but Orton drops Christian with a thunderous right hand!!! Batista runs at Orton, but Orton ducks, and Batista hit’s the corner, and staggers out … RKO!!!!!

Eliminated: Batista by Randy Orton @ 50:36


Christian drops his body onto Orton, in vain to break the count, but is too late, and we get the first glimpse of how shattered both men are, with Christian unable to summon the energy to roll off Orton. Batista is pulled away from the two men by the official, as Orton rolls onto his front, as Christian moves to the ropes, with both men realising it’s down to just them.

Slowly, both men get to their feet, the future of Raw in their hands, as they very slowly centre the ring, with Christian throwing a right hand, which rocks a fatigued Orton into the ropes, but Orton fires back, throwing a right hand, straight back at Captain Charisma. This shot sends Christian into ropes, but he regains his composure, and comes back, looking to strike Orton, but The Legend Killer blocks it, and throws a shot at Christian again, which sends Christian onto one knee. Orton backs up a little, and goes for another right hand at Christian, but CC blocks it, and gets back up, driving his knee into the mid section of Orton. He throws a right hand, then backs into the ropes, running back out … but Orton leaps in the air, hitting a perfect dropkick. He hooks the leg, … 1.…..2.….. CHRISTIAN KICKS OUT
Randy Orton gets to his knees, tilting his head back, breathing heavily, then picks up Christian, but Captain Charisma turns the tables once again, this time, with a well placed rake to the eyes, followed by a reverse neckbreaker. Christian pulls himself up on the ropes, and picks up the chair, with the blood dripping from his back, and even his head now, getting into his eyes. He picks the weapon up, and waits for Orton to get up, and turn around, then NAILS HIM!!! Captain Charisma gets the cover,

……ORTON KICKS OUT!!!……
Christian puts his head down in disappointment that Orton kicked out. He stomps on the head of Randy, trying to open the bloody wound on his head even further, which has all but ripped open young Ortons forehead. He picks Randy up, but the Legend Killer fights back, then bounces off the ropes, but as he comes at CC, Christian sidesteps him, and sends the opponent to the cage wall!! Orton staggers out, into a DDT!!! Christian hooks both legs, looking to take the match right here.

……………
……ORTON KICKS OUT!!!……
Christian slaps his own face in disgust, and then picks up Orton, before hitting a uppercut forearm, backing Orton into the corner. He stomps at the challenger, then walks back a little, watching as Orton pulls himself up to his vertical base, and Captain Charisma goes for a splash into the corner, but Orton moves, then runs off the ropes, coming at Christian, but both men have the same idea, and they collide in the middle of the ring, with a double clothesline!!!!! The two battle hardened warriors are both out of it, with the referee unable to issue a ten count, with a winner needing to be decided.
The fans get behind Randy Orton, breaking into a ’Lets go Randy’ chant, whilst in between each Orton chant, there is a small, yet audible ’Lets go Christian’ chant from a small section of fans. Neither man moves, and by now, if a ten count were issued, they’d both be near the 9 or 10 mark. Randy Orton is first to show life, kicking his leg, slamming it off the canvas, showing the fans he isn’t out of it yet. He looks up, and begins to move slightly forward, looking to use the ropes to get back up. Meanwhile, Christian now begins to stir, rolling onto his back. Christian is blowing hard to fill his lungs with air, as Orton begins to climb the ropes to get to his feet. Orton climbs to the middle rope, barely able to summon the strength after nearly an hour in the ring. Christian sits up, onto his side, and reaches for the ropes, with both men eventually getting up at roughly the same time, with Christian catching up on Orton, being the fresher of the two men.
The sole survivors look across the ring at each other, and nod, knowing this could be a battle to the death, before once again moving across the ring, staring at one another. Christian goes for a headlock, but Orton pushes him into the ropes, knocking Christian down with a shoulder block. Both men fall down, but surprisingly it’s Christian to move first, and he gets to his feet before Orton, who looks to be running out of gas. Orton swings wildly at Christian, but Christian is able to duck under, and kicks Orton in the gut, turning him around, and gets Orton into position … AND HIT’S THE UNPRETTIER!!!! Orton is flat on the canvas, with Christian not much better off. Christian doesn’t move for a good ten seconds, as the fans sit silently, waiting for the inevitable cover to come, and Christian begins to crawl forward …

……ORTON KICKS OUT!!!……
Manchester, New Hampshire lets out a sigh of relief, before nearly blowing the roof off the arena, as Orton kicks out again. Christian looks ready to cry, as the energy levels are fading for both men at this stage, with neither having much left to give. Christian slowly picks up Orton, but Randy drops down, a cradles Christian…1...2...Kick Out!!! Neither man is quick to his feet, both spent, and both desperate for the match to end. Eventually, with the crowd supporting Orton, the two men, with aid from the ropes, get back up. Christian stumbles at Orton, looking to strike Randy, but Orton ducks … AND HIT’S CHRISTIAN WITH THE RKO!!!!!
Randy flumps onto the canvas too, unable to follow up on the finishing move, with Captain Charisma in no mans land. Randy doesn’t move for a good fifteen seconds, before opening his eyes, looking at a beaten Christian, and Orton begins to claw across, with the fans feeling the moment, with The Legend Killer reaching, scratching, crawling across, eventually draping his arm over his opponent …

……CHRISTIAN KICKS OUT!!!……
Christian rolls over, with Orton flopping across, unable to even gather any emotions from the kick out. He stumbles back to his feet, and drops to a knee, willing Christian to get up, and after what seems like an eternity, Captain Charisma reaches his vertical base, with Orton looking to pounce with the RKO … but Christian blocks it … pushes Orton across the ring, into the ropes, and whilst Orton gets thrown across the ring, Christian picks up the steel chair … connecting with Orton upon his return!!!!
Randy Orton falls down, onto his back, as Christian falls backwards into the corner, which shows how much he put into the chair shot. Orton has yet to move, as Christian looks down on him, before shaking his head, not wanting a cover, in fear that Orton will kick out. Christian bends down, and with all his energy, drags Orton back up. Orton looks to be out of it, with him falling onto Christian, as Captain Charisma sets the chair in the centre of the ring. Christian turns Orton around, and hooks him up, takes a look around the arena … AND HIT’S THE UNPRETTIER ONTO THE STEEL CHAIR!!!!! Christian rolls Orton over, draping his arm across the Legend Killer …

- Winners: Team Flair -

- RIC FLAIR IS THE NEW GENERAL MANAGER OF RAW -

Jim Ross:
This blood bath, and that is what this has been, a blood bath, is mercifully over. Ric Flair, thanks to Christian is the new General Manager of Monday Night Raw.


The Coach:
Hallelujah. Mick Foley is gone from this arena on a stretcher, and he’s gone from Raw too.


Jim Ross:
Ladies and Gentlemen, I have never, and I mean never, witnessed a War Games match quite as sick, quite as gruesome as this one here tonight. I’d be hard pressed in fact, to find a match any more sadistic than the one we just witnessed. Randy Orton, walked into this arena just under an hour ago, and one hour later, after losing pints - literally pints of blood, has finally been beaten.


The Coach:
I don’t say this often J.R, but Randy Orton, with this performance tonight, has earned my respect. He gave it 200% per cent, but in the end, he just couldn’t climb the final hurdle.


Jim Ross:
Coach, young Randy Orton has absolutely nothing … NOTHING to be ashamed of, after giving everything he had. He stood up, and was counted for tonight, proving himself a leader amongst his team mates, with an inspiring performance.


Christian lays on the mat, on top of a lifeless Orton, as the announcement is made. We see Tyson Tomko enter War Games, and he immediately attends to his long time friend, Christian, helping Captain Charisma to his feet, and out of the structure, whilst officials try to help Orton back up.


Orton is helped up, with the fans giving the Legend Killer a richly deserved standing ovation for an amazing performance. He nods to the fans, unable to do anything else, with the officials being the reason he is on his feet.

Jim Ross:
Look at the appreciation for this man. Randy Orton gave it everything he had folks, I cannot stress that enough. This young man could well need a transfusion after a huge amount of blood loss.


The Coach:
I think that is one man we wont be seeing in Madison Square Garden tomorrow night on Raw J.R.


Jim Ross:
I cant imagine what we’ll see in New York tomorrow night, as we sign off from the Nineteenth annual Survivor Series. The Mick Foley era on Raw is over, and the Ric Flair administration will begin. Good night everybody.


The last image we see, is Randy Orton in the middle of the ring, now standing on his own support, acknowledging the fans show of respect, with the audience still giving him a standing ovation, as the show fades to black…


END OF SHOW
