Default Re: WWE: The Evolution Of Greed

So, finally managed to get this show finished. Took me far longer than I ever anticipated, but it's done now. I'm gonna try drop some feedback on a few threads over the next week or so. The show should be posted by the end of the week.

But yeah, for now, predictions plz.


~WWE JUDGMENT DAY~
May 20th, 2007
iPayOne Center; San Diego, California








World Heavyweight Championship Fatal Four Way Match:
World Heavyweight Champion Batista vs. Chris Benoit vs. Edge vs. Mr. Kennedy

At WrestleMania XXIII, the titanic battle between Batista and Edge for the World Heavyweight Championship finally came to a head when ‘The Animal’ was able to put Edge away with the Batista Bomb. But the match was not one without controversy. Both men had chances to win the match scuppered by problems with the referees, but after his defeat, Edge was vocal about his feelings that he deserved another shot at the gold. But on the first SmackDown after WrestleMania, Edge wasn’t the only man to step forward to challenge ‘The Animal’. Indeed, at one point it looked like Batista would be defending his title tonight against one of five men, as Chris Benoit, Mr. Kennedy, The Undertaker and Umaga all threw their names into the hat alongside Edge. However, after Umaga’s vicious assault of ‘The Deadman’ caused ‘Taker to conduct one of his trademark disappearing acts, and Umaga was suspended as a result of his actions, it was Benoit, Edge and Kennedy who would do battle to determine the next number one contender. It was an emotionally charged Benoit who would emerge victorious, fuelled by the prospect of knowing time could be soon running out on his career as mounting injuries take their toll. But of course, Edge had to have the last word, putting Benoit on the shelf with a devastating one man con-chair-to, leaving many to wonder if Benoit would ever return.

It was then Kennedy who challenged Batista in a No Way Out rematch, but again Edge involved himself, delivering spears to both men. Having had enough, Teddy Long decided to let the three men settle it between themselves in a Triple Threat Match. However, just as the trio signed their names to a contract, Benoit returned, hellbent on getting revenge on Edge, with Long giving him the chance as he was inserted into the match, making it a Fatal Four Way. For Batista, tonight is a chance to put to bed any questions over his WrestleMania retention by beating his three biggest challengers in one night. For Kennedy, it’s another chance to fulfil the destiny he has long proclaimed about. Having saw off one of the greatest World Heavyweight Champions in history by beating Ric Flair at WrestleMania, Kennedy is primed to take the next big step in his career. For Edge, another chance to grab the title he believes should already be his, proving his claims that he should have won at WrestleMania have been right all along. And as for Benoit, tonight could be his last ever shot at the big gold belt. Having already admitted that he plans to hang up his boots at some point over the summer, Benoit knows he doesn’t have much time left. Could tonight provide one of the most emotional, and sentimental title wins in WWE history? Will Kennedy or Edge finally show that not only can they talk the talk, they can walk the walk too? Or will the dominant champion prove that when it comes to the World Heavyweight Championship, nobody can handle ‘The Animal’?




Last Man Standing Match:
Chavo Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio

It was ten months ago at the 2006 Great American Bash where Chavo Guerrero cost Rey Mysterio the World Heavyweight Championship. Having fought so hard to honour the legacy of the late Eddie Guerrero, Rey’s dreams were dashed by Eddie’s nephew in a shocking moment that stunned all in attendance. The two battled for much of last summer, until they faced off in an I Quit Match, where Chavo stooped to new lows as he repeatedly smashed Mysterio’s knee with a steel chair, clearly intent on not only making Mysterio quit, but ending his career. And Chavo thought he had done just that as Mysterio sat at home for over six months. However, during that time, Mysterio has worked hard to rehab the injured knee, and every fan was delighted when vignettes started playing, signalling his imminent return. But of course, a certain Guerrero was less than impressed. With his Aunt Vickie’s encouragement, Chavo immediately issued a challenge for Judgment Day, wanting a Last Man Standing Match with the simple aim of not only injuring Mysterio badly enough that he fails to answer a ten count… but that he never wrestles again.

Since that challenge, Chavo has taken us down memory lane for a retrospective of Mysterio’s career, humiliating Mysterio’s friend Dean Malenko, then beating prominent figures from Mysterio’s past such as Psicosis and Billy Kidman. After well over a month of taunts, Mysterio returned last Friday night on SmackDown, looking to confront Guerrero, only for Chavo to escape. While in the past Mysterio has been involved in many spectacular matches with both Chavo and Eddie, tonight promises to be nothing more than a brutal fight between two former friends. For Chavo, Judgment Day provides a chance to wrong the perceived injustices Chavo feels Mysterio has committed against his family. Claiming that Rey lived off his late Uncle’s legacy and used the outpouring of sympathy that came from Eddie’s death to further his own career, Chavo has disgusted many with his words in recent weeks. As for Mysterio, he’s determined to extract revenge for the injury that cost him over six months of his career. It’s been a long war between these two, but tonight, it finally comes to a head, as two of the greatest cruiserweight fliers in wrestling history battle in what is sure to be a brutal affair.




United States Championship Match:
United States Champion Matt Hardy vs. The Miz

For Matt Hardy, 2007 has already been the most successful year of his career. Having beaten Finlay at WrestleMania to become United States Champion, Hardy has just kept on rolling, beating Finlay at his own game by coming through a brutal Belfast Brawl to retain his title. However, from the first SmackDown after WrestleMania, Hardy has been targeted by The Miz, a man who seems determined to reach the highs of Hardy’s career in a much faster time. Since arriving in the WWE, Miz has been known as a former reality TV star and little else. But ever since he joined forces with Michelle McCool, Miz has dedicated himself to improving his in-ring skills, and it showed as he won the pre-WrestleMania Battle Royal. Week on week Miz has been impressive his doubters with his in-ring performances, culminating with him pinning Hardy two nights ago on SmackDown during an Eight Man Tag Team Match. Miz has proven he is more than capable of bringing Hardy’s fairy-tale year to an abrupt halt, and this match could mean more to him than just the United States Title. For Hardy, he’s determined to keep his winning run going, but for Miz, tonight proves the biggest opportunity in his career to prove that he belongs in the WWE. Who will leave Judgment Day as the holder of the prestigious United States Championship?



Cruiserweight Championship Match:
Cruiserweight Champion Gregory Helms vs. Bryan Danielson

For 477 days, Gregory Helms has dominated cruiserweight wrestling in the WWE. As the reigning Cruiserweight Champion, Helms took on all challengers, and one way or another, he managed to beat some of the biggest names the cruiserweight world has ever seen. But of course, with success came arrogance, and with each challenger knocked off, Helms’ bragging grew, until finally, SmackDown General Manager Teddy Long couldn’t stand it any longer. After conducting an exhaustive worldwide search, Long found a man he deemed capable of putting Helms in his place. That man… was Bryan Danielson. Arriving on the scene on SmackDown with Helms firmly in his sights, Danielson nearly became champion in his first WWE match, as the Cruiserweight Championship Gauntlet Match at No Way Out came down to Danielson and Helms. But, just like always, Helms did whatever it took to score a questionable win and save his title. Danielson then earned a one-on-one match with Helms at WrestleMania, but again, Helms pulled out every dirty trick he had to remain champion. Thinking he had saw off the threat of Danielson as a challenger, Helms has the gall to try and have the Cruiserweight Title retired as a way of cementing his legacy. But for all his campaigning and petitions, Helms’ request was denied, and Danielson was granted one last chance at the gold. Tonight at Judgment Day, a rivalry that has been building for almost five months finally comes to a head. Will Helms truly prove once and for all he is exactly what he says he is, the greatest cruiserweight in the world? Or is tonight finally the night that Danielson ushers in a new era for WWE’s cruiserweight division?



WWE Tag Team Championships Match:
WWE Tag Team Champions The Hooligans vs. The New Breed

Since the demise of ECW, Elijah Burke and Monty Brown were left as competitors without a home. However, once Layla brought the two together as a team, the pair have looked impressive, picking up wins over many of the teams in SmackDown’s tag division… including their opponents tonight, the champions, The Hooligans. But, that win may come with an asterisk beside it, as one question has plagued the champions in recent weeks… just what is going on with Brian Kendrick? Ever since WrestleMania, Kendrick has seemed somewhat distant from his partner Paul London, the two arguing on several occasions, especially over the perceived disrespect Kendrick feels the champions are receiving. Indeed, Kendrick has demanded better spots on the card and more lucrative opportunities for the champions, a stark contrast to London’s attitude of simply proving they’re the best team SmackDown has to offer. Ashley Massaro has of course done her best to keep her team together, and both men reiterated their common goal, to remain champions. But with the cracks starting to show, The New Breed seem in prime position to take advantage. London and Kendrick have presented a united front in recent weeks… but it seems they could be one defeat away from falling apart. Can the champions stay on the same page long enough to retain their titles? Or will Layla lead her team to glory in their first title opportunity?



Grudge Match:
Finlay vs. Kane

2007 had such a promising start for the veteran Irishman Finlay. After running Batista close with a great performance at the 2007 Royal Rumble, Finlay became United States Champion at No Way Out after another stirring display saw him see off Chris Benoit. After then proving his toughman credentials by beating Benoit in a Belfast Brawl, it seemed as if Finlay was set to roll into WrestleMania and beyond with the gold firmly around his waist. But after losing his title to Matt Hardy, 2007 has suddenly taken a turn for the worse for ‘The Belfast Brawler’, with defeat after defeat seeing Finlay crash out of the 2007 King of the Ring at the first hurdle. And it was Kane who would pay the price as Finlay snapped. With Kane beating Finlay to advance in the King of the Ring, ‘The Big Red Machine’ was subjected to a vicious shillelagh attack after the match, with Finlay paying particular attention to Kane’s knee, leaving Kane down and out in the centre of the ring in a fashion that few have done to Kane during his WWE career. Never one to stay down, Kane immediately sought revenge, taunting Finlay with mind games, then assaulting Finlay backstage, with Teddy Long quick to sign this match at Judgment Day. Two tough as hell competitors with two very differing reasons for victory tonight. For Kane, a chance at revenge in that sadistic style he enjoys most. For Finlay, a chance to get his year back on track. But only one man can emerge victorious tonight.



Six Person Tag Team Match:
The Extremists vs. The Coachman Coalition

For years, Jonathan Coachman has been viewed as somewhat of a joke figure in the WWE. As Mr. McMahon’s bumbling assistant on Raw, ‘Coach’ regularly made wrong decisions, embarrassing himself in the process. However, since arriving on SmackDown as Interim General Manager during Teddy Long’s absence, ‘Coach’ had sought to show a more serious side. But after several questionable decisions, ‘Coach’ was relieved of all duties upon Long’s return, even turning his hand to cleaning toilets in a desperate attempt to justify his salary. But after an embarrassing incident with The Extremists that saw The Sandman spit beer square in Coachman’s face, ‘Coach’ decided enough was enough and sought after recruiting a team to deliver a little embarrassment of his own. After brining in ‘MVP’, King Booker and the returning Mark Henry, ‘Coach’ clearly feels he has a team capable of picking up a win here tonight. However, given that it was Tommy Dreamer who shocked the world by knocking Booker out of the 2007 King of the Ring, and that it was the extreme trio who emerged standing during the chaotic scenes between the six men during last Friday’s SmackDown, The Extremists will no doubt be confident that they can pull off what would be considered another upset here tonight. Will The Coachman Coalition make a winning debut, restoring the pride of the man who brought them all together? Or will The Extremists once again prove that the spirit that carried the original ECW is still alive and well in the WWE today?
