Sunday Night HEAT

HEAT kicks off with a brief rundown of the card by The Coach & Todd Grisham

Our first match for HEAT sees Cryme Tyme wrestle in their first ever WWE match, although they aren't expected to be called up to live TV for a few months they give a good account of themselves against two local wrestler's, and finish them off as Shad takes one of their heads off with a Big Boot to win

AJ Styles vs Charlie Haas and the Dudleyz vs Cade/Jindrak come under the microscope first as we are shown all the events leading up to these matches

Backstage we see Road Dogg, Billy & X-Pac setting up a BBQ area with a large sign that says "Free BBQ". The three are already handing out DX merchandise to a small number of fans outside the arena

Next up Goldust takes on A-Train. Goldy seems to have it when he hits the Golden Globes and goes for the Curtain Call, but A-Train is too heavy and counters it into the Train Wreck, then brings up Goldust and emphatically settles it with a Derailer!

Next the Carlito/Monty Brown and the Inter Promotional Hardcore title matches come under review by Coach & Todd, Coach says his man Monty will teach Carlito to fear the POUNCE, period

We see a limo arrive and Vince McMahon steps out to HUGE heat! Vince smiles and says "It's gonna be one of those night's" and walks off

Cena/Kane feud is highlighted next, with Coach saying Cena is too young, fresh and quick for Kane and will finish off what they started on RAW this past Monday

In the next match The Headbangers team with Maven & Val Venis to face La Resistance and the Johnnies. In a pretty entertaining mix of a match, the heels pick up the win when Mosh eats a Bonsoir from La Reistance after a brawl had sparked out

RVD/Christian/Shelton feud and The Rock/Trish vs Edge/Lita feuds are next to be rundown and showcased

Backstage now and Cade & Jindrak cut a typical run of the mill promo bragging about them being Perfection and the Dudleyz being that thing that was done years ago

Main event time sees Eugene take on Matt Striker after their recent altercation this week on RAW in the DX Casino. Striker cheats his way to a win with a rollup after Eugene misses a People's Elbow, Striker grabs ahold of the tights to make sure of the win


The Coach & Todd Grisham sign off

Narrator: And now, Pepsi presents a RAW production

The crowd goes wild and the camera's scan around the sold out 17, 317 capacity crowd at the ARCO Arena showing signs like "Rock & Trish are cookin' summin hot!", "AJ is Phenomenal", "I'm a Peep" and "I sold my soul to get tickets to Unforgiven!" before we go to ringside and are welcomed by JR & The King

JR: Welcome to WWE Unforgiven folks, we have jam packed the ARCO Arena in Sacramento for one helluva PPV King!

King: You can just feel it JR, the big occassion that is the main event! The final match, Triple H vs Shawn Michaels and up for grabs, the richest prize in the industry, the WWE Championship!

JR: This match is not only just a huge rematch, but it is going to be Last Man Standing this time King, and what about the stipulations! If Triple H wins, then Vince McMahon has said he will admit defeat in his war with DX and he will tear up Shawn Michaels' contract on RAW, effective immediately! But if HBK is to win, then Triple H can never challenge for the WWE Title again, and Shawn Michaels will be the Champion but will be completely manipulated by Vince McMahon, because the most shocking event of RAW this year happened, Shawn Michaels sold himself to Vince for one more chance at glory!

King: OK JR quit rambling on we're ready for our first match!


*I Am* hits to a big pop as AJ Styles makes his way out on stage, he flips his hood up and extends his arms as the pyro falls behind him and then heads down the ramp slapping some hands with fans at ringside

Lilian: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is for the WWE Intercontinental Championship! Introducing first from Gamesville; Georgia, weighing in at 215 pounds, "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles!

Crowd erupts as Styles rolls into the ring and extends his arms again facing into the crowd

*World's Greatest* hits and the cheers turn to jeers as Charlie Haas walks down the ramp with the IC strap over his shoulder

Lilian: And from Dallas; Texas, weighing in at 238 pounds, his is the Intercontinental Champion, Charlie Haas!

Haas gets into the ring and holds the IC title up in AJ's face, gaining heat from the fans while AJ smiles and says "I'll take that off your hands in a sec" which Haas doesn't approve to and shoves AJ, and AJ comes back with a right hand, taking Haas off his feet and we are underway!

Match 1
WWE Intercontinental Championship
AJ Styles vs Charlie Haas (c)


Styles locks up with Haas as he gets back to his feet and both men jockey for position, Haas wrestles Styles into the corner, overpowering Styles, but Chad Patton gets in between the two, calling for a break.
Haas obliges, stepping back and trying to catch a cheap shot on Styles, but AJ avoids it and runs at Haas, only for Haas to take AJ down with a Drop Toe Hold. Charlie Haas now wraps his arms around the waist of Styles, locking in a rear waist lock. Haas keeps ahold of the move as AJ forces himself back to his feet and switches positions with Haas on the go behind, only for Haas to grab AJ and pull him through with a Snapmare take down.
Both men get back to their feet quickly and AJ comes at Haas again, this time Haas grabs him by the head and takes him over with a Headlock takedown. Haas doesn't hold the headlock in for long as AJ uses his feet to turn it to AJ's favour with a scissors hold applied to Haas' head, and the IC Champion is forced to relinquish his hold on Styles.

Both men get up to their feet quickly again and stop as the crowd applauds the opening exchanges between the two as they stand, looking at each other.
An *AJ* chant starts as the two circle the ring. Both men come towards the center and tie up again, this time AJ gets the better of Haas and applies a Hammerlock to Haas. Haas searches for a way to counter and spins around out of the move, to be met by a knife edge chop from Styles!
The crowd erupts as Haas covers his pectoral area, and AJ hits him with a right hand. Haas falls back against the ropes and Styles whips him across the ring, only for Haas to slide under him on the return, and Haas gets to his feet to be met by Styles with a perfect dropkick right on the jaw!
The crowd pops as Haas stumbles towards the ropes holding his jaw and AJ runs in with a clothesline, taking Charlie Haas over the ropes and out to the floor!

AJ now uses this time to get the crowd involved, yelling out "Come on" as he gets a good reaction from them. On the outside Haas is getting back to his feet, and AJ sees this, rebounding off the ropes and leaping over the top rope to the outside, LANDING ON HAAS WITH A SUICIDE PLANCHA! The crowd erupts for the move and another *AJ* chant starts up as both men are temporarily down on the outside. AJ gets to his feet holding his back for a moment and gets Haas up, hitting him with a right hand, as Charlie Haas stumbles back to the ring apron. AJ comes to grab Haas, but Haas places a boot to the midsection of Styles and then grabs him by the head, slamming him face first into the ring apron. Haas now rolls AJ back into the ring and gets in after him. Haas makes a cover 1....AJ kicks out easily.
Haas gets AJ to his feet now and fires back at Styles with a chop of his own. Haas sends AJ to the ropes, and AJ comes back on the rebound with Haas going for a clothesline, but AJ ducks under Haas and goes to the other side. AJ rebounds off and comes back taking Haas down with a crossbody 1.....2..kickout by Haas.

Both men are again up to their feet, trying to out do the other still and Haas grabs AJ, putting him in a Side Headlock. Haas keeps the hodl on, moving it around to increase pressure, but then AJ sends Haas to the ropes, only for Haas to rebound with a shoulder block, taking AJ off his feet. Haas now hops over Styles and goes to the ropes again, this time AJ leapfrogs over Haas to a nice pop from the fans, and then catches Haas on the rebound with a deep arm drag! Haas gets back to his feet and AJ takes him down again with another arm drag. AJ now tries to wrestle Haas at his own game, locking an armbar on Charlie Haas right after taking him down with the second armdrag. Haas tries to free himself from the hold and gets back to a vertical base, raising an elbow smash to the face of Styles, who lets go of the hold. Styles holds his nose and Haas grabs AJ and backs him into the corner. Chad Patton gets in between the two, breaking the tie up and Haas backs off, raising his hands up like he's done nothing wrong, then takes a swing at AJ, who avoids it and the momentum sends Haas into the corner. AJ now leaps at Haas, placing his feet into the ribs of him and grabbing onto his shoulders before flipping back, taking Haas down with a Monkey Flip! AJ covers 1.....2.kickout.

AJ gets Haas up but Charlie Haas raises a knee to the gut of Styles, then takes him down with a ...sian Leg Sweep. Haas covers with a lateral press 1.....2..shoulder up.
Haas gets up and stomps on the face of AJ. Charlie Haas now brings AJ to his feet and whips him towards the corner. AJ reaches the turnbuckles and grabs on looking to slingshot over an incoming Haas, but Charlie Haas has this scouted and catches AJ's legs before shoving him all the way out to the floor! The crowd "Ooo's" as AJ smacks down onto the padding on the concrete floor. Haas raises his arms up to heat from the fans and tells Patton to start counting AJ Styles out of the match.

AJ starts recovering and crawling towards the ring apron

Haas rebounds himself off the ropes and slides in connecting with a Baseball Slide to AJ!

Haas restarts the ref's count as he joins AJ on the outside, taking Styles and rolling him back into the ring.
Haas now gets onto the apron and waits for AJ to get up before socking him with a right hand. Haas gets into the ring and takes AJ Styles, lifting him up before dropping him down across his knee with a Backbreaker. Haas covers 1.....2...kickout. Haas looks at Patton, as if asking silently for a better count. Haas now stalks Styles, trying to get him in position for the Vertical Exploder, but Styles elbows out of it. Haas holds his jaw and backs off to the ropes as Styles comes to him, but Haas suckers him in and nails a European Uppercut to Styles, then hits him with a right hand. Haas now grabs Styles around the waist and loads him up and pants him with a Gutwrench Suplex! Haas covers Styles 1.....2...kickout.

Haas seems slightly annoyed that Styles kicked out again but doesn't let his anger get the better of him as he measures a well placed elbow drop to the chest of Styles. Haas gets up and quickly drops another elbow to the chest of AJ. Haas gets back up to his feet and once again drops another elbow, the third in succession to the chest of AJ Styles. Haas drops down to the mat and hooks the leg of Styles in another pinfall attempt 1.....2...kickout again! Haas lets out a f...trated yell this time as Styles kicks out. Charlie Haas now grabs ahold of the ropes and starts to stomp down onto AJ Styles, starting to put some real vigour and anger into each stomp. Haas stops after about ten stomps and drops down next to Styles talking trash to him. Haas now brings AJ up and gets him in a front facelock, then loads him up before planting him to the mat with a Standing Suplex. Haas floats over into a quick cover 1.....2...kickout. Haas slaps the mat in annoyance this time as again AJ kicks out.

Charlie Haas gets to his feet, looking down at Styles and snorting in disgust. Haas brings the Phenomenal One to his feet and whips him hard into the corner. Haas takes a moment before running in at Styles who gets an elbow up in the face of Haas to a pop from the crowd. Haas stumbles out of the corner holding his jaw and AJ comes at him, but Haas turns and takes AJ's head off with a huge clothesline, turning AJ inside out! Charlie Haas seems to think this will do it and covers AJ again 1.....2...kickout! Haas lets out a deeper yell this time, seemingly starting to lose his cool like he did at Summerslam. Haas gets up and grabs AJ by the head, pulling Styles up to his feet. Haas now sends AJ to the ropes, looking to meet him on the rebound but Haas lowers his head too early and AJ takes advantage of this, taking Haas down with a headscissors! Haas gets back to his feet dazed and AJ hits him with a right hand, then a left, then a right and before we know it AJ is going wild on Haas with a flurry of rights and lefts to Charlie Haas, who is reeling into the corner trying to defend himself. Haas kicks Styles in the gut, ending his flurry and hops onto the middle turnbuckle.

AJ comes at Haas, climbing up onto the ropes quickly and trying to get Haas in a Superplex, but Haas blocks it, firing a couple of shots into the midsection of AJ, as Styles falls off to the mat below. Haas now climbs up to the top turnbuckle as AJ regains his footing and Haas leaps off, but in a reversal of roles from Summerslam, AJ CATCHES HAAS MIDAIR AND COUNTERS WITH A SIT OUT POWERBOMB! The crowd erupts as Styles may've finally gotten back into this match with a huge impact counter. Styles makes a cover

HAAS KICKS OUT!

The crowd is dissapointed as is Styles, thinking he may've been able to steal the win there.
Both men now take a moment getting to their feet after the high impact move. Haas throws a right hand at Styles, who blocks it and comes back with one of his own to Haas. Haas tries again to hit a right to Styles but again AJ blocks it and fights back with a right of his own. AJ now sends Haas to the ropes and nails him on the rebound with a Flying Cross Attack! Haas hits the mat and gets back up into a clothesline. AJ is starting to gain momentum as Haas gets to his feet wobbly and Styles runs past him, on the way grabbing Haas by the waist with a rollup

AJ KICKS OUT

The crowd pops, and Haas rubs his forehead knowing how close he was to scoring the win there. Haas gets on one knee, then struggles up still feeling the effects of AJ's small rally back into the match. AJ is on all fours, trying to get back up when Haas drops a sledge down over Styles. Haas now puts his knees into the back of Styles, and holds onto his arms, pulling him back into the Mexican Surfboard Hold! Instantly we see the pain on Styles' face as he grits his teeth after letting out a loud yell.
Haas starts to tug on Styles' arms, inscreasing the torque on the hold, trying to urge Styles to tap out. Styles is pretty much stuck with no where to go, and Haas tells him to tap, but Styles from no where manages to free his arms and leap onto his feet! The crowd is surprised by Styles' counter and Haas can't believe it. Styles ducks a clothesline from Haas and goes for the Starmaker, but Haas shifts his weight and escapes from the attempt, and takes AJ down with a Dragon Suplex! Haas keeps it bridged with the pinfall

AJ GETS A SHOULDER UP

The crowd pops as Styles is still alive in this contest and Haas can't believe the resiliance of AJ again, much like a month ago. Haas quickly scrambles at Styles, trying to apply the Haas Of Pain to him, but AJ reaches out and holds onto the ropes as Chad Patton backs Haas off, which infuriates Haas. Haas comes at AJ, but AJ meets him with a chop across the chest which echoes around the arena. AJ now goes to send Haas to the ropes, but Haas reverses the Irish whip sending Styles to the ropes. AJ returns and Haas goes to elevate him out of the ring, but Haas doesn't see Styles grab onto the ropes, saving his skin and landing on the apron! Haas turns around and AJ drives a shoulder into the midsection of Haas, then leaps over and pins Haas with a Sunset Flip

The crowd loves the athleticism of AJ Styles and Haas turns around into the PELE KICK! The crowd erupts, but Styles cannot capitalize immediately, as he falls to the mat holding his ribs, which are still hurting after the bump earlier on in the match. AJ gets back to his feet, but doesn't go for the cover, instead he looks to the top rope which brings a great response from the fans. AJ steps through the ropes and climbs upstairs gingerly. AJ balances himself on the top rope and leaps off with the SPIRAL TAP, AND COMES CRASHING DOWN, BUT HAAS ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! AJ crashes to the mat and the crowd is silenced as Haas scrambles over and makes a cover, hooking both legs back

Haas falls off Styles, looking ready to shed a tear in disbelief that Styles kicked out. Haas gets to his feet slowly and makes a motion that it's all over, pulling AJ up to his feet and sending him to the ropes, seemingly setting him up for the Vertical Exploder 98, but as AJ rebounds he turn his body facing away from Haas, who loads him up looking for a Wheelbarrow Suplex, but Styles counters midair ala-Mysterio-esque style and plants Haas into the mat face first with a Bulldog!

AJ grabs him and tries to go for the Styles Clash, but Haas turns it through and lifts Styles up with a Double Underhook Backbreaker! Haas winces in pain as AJ holds his back, rolling on the mat. Haas now senses his chance to finally take the match and starts flexing his fingers, as if willing on AJ to get back to his feet.

Winner @ 13:42 - AJ Styles
NEW Intercontinental Champion


Lilian Garcia: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner, and the NEW Intercontinental Champion, A...J...STYLESSSS!

The crowd erupts as AJ holds his ribs and Chad Patton raises his hand in victory, finally dethroning Charlie Haas of the Intercontinental title. Haas is on the outside looking extremely upset with himself on his knees, while AJ is handed the belt and AJ kisses it before raising it high to the fans

JR: AJ Styles has done it! Finally, after almost three months of failed attempts, AJ has finally defeated Charlie Haas to become Intercontinental Champion, his first major WWE Title!

King: I gotta give it to AJ Styles JR, he truly was Phenomenal at points in that match and Charlie Haas just had no answer at other times!

JR: And what a way to kick off Unforgiven folks, with a new Intercontinental Champion, and what a match King.

King: That was a great match JR, perfect to kick off tonight and I'm pretty sure that may've even topped their Summerslam clash!

JR: AJ Styles is one happy man! Look at what it means to the 28 year old!


AJ is on the outside, he jumps into the crowd with a pack of the fans at ringside who all start chanting *AJ* as he celebrates with them, holding the IC belt up high while Haas heads back up the ramp, defeated by the better man

Backstage now and we are outside the arena where the DX BBQ is alive and kicking, with some fans and even a few lower carders like Val Venis & Maven lining up for some free grub. X-Pac is at a merchandise kiosk off to the side, handing out free keychains, shirts, posters and such. We go back to the BBQ line, and a guy walks off with his hotdog

Guy: Thanks.

Billy: No worries.


Next up steps Matt Striker! Billy & Road Dogg look at each other as if to say "Damnit"

Striker: Hey I'll have one please.

Billy: Uh sure...


Billy nudges Road Dogg, who sneaks away to the sign that says "Free" and turns it around, and now it says "Three"!

Billy: Here you go, that'll be three bucks.

Striker: What? This is free! It says so on the sign.

Billy: Uh no it doesn't, it says Three. Not free.


Crowd laughs as Road Dogg sneaks back beside Billy

Road Dogg: Cough it up.

Striker: No! The guy before got his for free!

Billy: So?

Striker: So why do I have to pay?

Road Dogg: Everyone has to pay.

Striker: You know what, fine, I don't have to put up with your childish games DX, you want to take my money, here, three bucks, no may I please have my hotdog?

Billy: Fine...

Billy picks a sausage off the grill and "accidentally" drops it on the floor instead of into the bread bun

Billy: Oops. My bad.

Road Dogg: It just fell out?

Billy: Just like that...


The Outlaws smirk as Striker is not looking too happy

Striker: Can I have another then?

Billy: No. One per customer.

Road Dogg: Quick, ten second rule!


Striker doesn't seem to understand

Road Dogg: PICK IT UP!

Striker: No way. Lord knows what germs have befouled this ground over the years. I will not relegate myself down to some homeless deliquint to eat a sausage. Please, may I have another?

Billy: Well if you want another, you'll have to pay again.


Striker pulls out his wallet and hands Road Dogg another three dollars

Billy: Alright, this time I'll try to get it in the bun.

Billy places the sausage in the hotdog bun and hands it to Striker, who takes it and walks off to the side, taking a bite

Meanwhile the line moves up and Road Dogg switches the sign back to Free! The crowd is heard laughing in the background as Maven, a girl, a guy and then another girl all take free sausages, while Striker notices this and walks back over, furious with what's going on

Striker: Hey I thought it wasn't free! What are all these people doing getting free sausages.

Road Dogg: Um because it's a free BBQ maybe?

Striker: But you made me fork out six dollars just to get one of your standard sausages!

Road Dogg: So?

Striker: I want my money back. These things taste horrible anyways! And why did I have to pay when everyone else is getting free food?

Billy: Oh, because we don't like you Matt.

Striker: What? Why?

Road Dogg: Well, it's a whole lot of things. First, your clothes. Look at this. Checkered fleece jumper, checkered spandex? Didn't you already wrestle tonight? Why are you still in your wrestling gear? And then there's your attitude problems. On Monday night in the card game, and again tonight.


Striker isn't very happy

Striker: This is injust! You cannot treat a person of my stature like this.

Road Dogg: Don't cause a scene Striker, we don't want to have to get security involved.

Striker: Who is it? Eugene? I'll bribe him off with a colouring book.

Road Dogg: I asked you nicely, now I'm afraid you're leavin this area. Ron! We got a trouble maker!


The camera turns around to see Ron Simmons by a group of ladies, Simmons turns around and sees Striker, immediately looking disgusted his flirt has been interrupted

Simmons: ...DAMN!

Striker sees Simmons and smiles, putting his hands together as if to be praying for Simmons not to come for him

Simmons: You again!

Striker: I'm sure we can come to some agreement...

Simmons: Oh I don't think so.


Simmons takes Striker by his fleece top and escorts him away and the fans lining up can be heard cheering as we cut back to ringside

JR: Matt Striker just doesn't seem to get it. He's just ruining all the fun DX are trying to have.

King: Striker's right JR! This is injust! A superior academic like himself should not be degraded to that kind of treatment!

JR: All I can say is he got what he deserved folks.


*Drop Da Bombshells* hits and the crowd erupts as Bubba & Dvon step out on stage after the pyro crashes onto the stage, pumping up the crowd on stage, looking extremely focused on this match after what happened to them on RAW

Match 2
World Tag Team Championships
Dudley Boyz vs Cade & Jindrak (c)


It seems that Bubba and Cade will start things off, as both men stand in their corner talking with their partner for a moment, and then they both head to the middle of the ring and lock up.
Bubba uses his weight advantage and backs Cade into the corner, but the referee gets in quickly, calling for the clean break and Bubba backs off mouthing "How do you like that pretty boy?"
The crowd pops as Cade comes at Bubba and Bubba ties up with Lance Cade again.
Cade goes behind on Bubba, and Bubba runs to the ropes, grabbing onto them as Cade loses his grip on Bubba's large waist and rolls backwards. Cade gets back up to his feet and Bubba runs right through him with a clothesline! Bubba measures Cade as the youngster gets to his feet and meet him with a jab to the face, then Bubba takes Cade and sends him to the ropes. Cade rebounds back and Bubba meets him by elevating him up high and Cade crashes down onto his back hard. Bubba makes a cover 1...kickout.

Cade gets back up and Bubba grabs him and sends him into the corner, before following in with a huge clothesline sandwhiching Cade in between the corner and the clothesline, and Cade is taken off his feet. Bubba now puts a stomp to Cade who is down in the corner, before bringing Cade up and exposing his chest. Bubba pulls his hand back, then nails an open palm slap across the chest of Cade to a huge *Ooo* from the fans as Cade holds his chest, but Bubba exposes it again and nails another sharp slap over the chest of Cade's chest! Cade stumbles out wincing, his chest lighting up and Bubba sends him to the ropes, looking for a clothesline, but Cade slides between Bubba's legs and then Bubba turns around right into a right hand. Cade hits another right, and then whips Bubba to the ropes. Bubba comes back and Cade tries to hit a shoulder block to the incoming Bubba, but Bubba once again takes advantage of his bulk and flattens Cade with a big shoulder block! Cade goes flying backwards and gets up a little dizzy, as Bubba whips him to the ropes, only for Cade to grab onto them and exit to the outside of the ring.

The crowd boos as Cade is joined by Jindrak on the outside while Bubba hangs over the ring ropes, yelling out "Get back in here you pansy!" to a pop from the crowd. Cade & Jindrak begin to talk, when Dvon hops off the apron and walks around, grabbing both of their heads and mashing them together! Dvon then rolls Cade back into the ring. Cade is on his knees now, putting his hands up to try and stop Bubba who slaps them aside and socks Cade with a right hand. Bubba brings Cade up to his feet now and loads him up for a moment, stalling for a second before slamming him down roughly with a scoop slam. Bubba makes a lateral press on Cade 1...2..kickout. Bubba now pulls Lance Cade up to his feet via a handful of hair as Cade groans, feeling the rip of his golden strands. Bubba locks Cade in a waistlock and holds Cade's left arm up, exposing the midsection, and then tags in his half brother Dvon.

Dvon mounts the middle rope and leaps off, delivering a fist into the exposed side of Cade. Cade holds his stomach and crawls away as Dvon catches him by the foot and drags him back towards the Dudleyz corner. Dvon measures Cade and nails him with a right hand, then another as Cade is taking a bane of punishment in the opening few minutes. Dvon now sends Cade to the ropes and meets him with a Cyclone Attack, taking Cade off his feet. Dvon covers 1.....2..kickout.
Dvon gets to his feet and tries to bring Cade back up to a vertical base, but Cade hits a desperate shot to the ribs of Dvon, trying to escape the assault of the Dudleyz, but Dvon comes back with a straight right to the forehead of Cade, stopping him. Dvon now grabs the left arm of Cade and wrenches it around before driving his elbow onto it. Cade tries to free himself from Dvon's grip, but Dvon tugs at the arm, as Cade goes down to the mat, clutching at his left arm area. Dvon now drops a leg across the left arm of Cade and makes another cover 1....kickout.

Dvon now tags in Bubba again, and the Dudleyz go over to Cade who is trying to get back to his feet. The Dudleyz send Cade to the ropes and as Cade rebounds off them they meet him with a Double Hip Toss, flinging Cade to the mat. Bubba makes a lateral press 1.....2...shoulder up.
Bubba gets up and grabs Lance Cade, pulling him up to his feet also. Bubba shoves Cade backwards into the turnbuckle as a *We Want Tables* chant begins. Bubba pulls his hand back and opens his palm open, slapping Cade right on the chest harshly to a wicked echo around the arena. Cade falls to his knees, clutching at his flaming chest area after all the slaps it's taken in this contest. Bubba pulls Cade back up and places him in the corner again and hits another open handed slap across the red raw chest of Lance Cade! Cade stumbles away from Bubba, who turns to Jindrak saying "I got one for you too you sissy mary!" which brings a pop from the fans, enjoying Bubba's insults tonight.

Cade is now leaning against the ropes, begging with Bubba to stop, but Bubba has none of it, grabbing Cade and slamming the youngster's head into the turnbuckle. Bubba holds his hand up, tagging in Dvon for the second time in this match, and Dvon rams a lifted knee into the midsection of Cade, then as Cade doubles over, Dvon clobbers him over the back with a strong club. Cade staggers away, trying to reach for a tag to Jindrak, but Dvon grabs him again, only for Cade to rake the eyes! Cade tags in Jindrak finally getting out of the match and Jindrak hits a clothesline to Dvon from behind, taking the Dudley down. Jindrak now measures Dvon and stomps on his back area repeatedly, and when Marty Elias tries to stop it, Jindrak begins to act like he never did anything, and Cade uses the tag rope choke out Dvon! This garners heat from the crowd as Bubba steps through the ropes, complaining to the referee, but this only proves to be a benefit for the Champions, as Jindrak now puts the boots to Dvon's midsection while Cade continues to choke Dvon with the tag rope.

Bubba is sent back onto the apron and Cade quickly releases the grip on the tag rope as he holds his hands up, acting sincere.
Meanwhile Jindrak sends Dvon to the ropes and meets him with a Hot Shot, hanging Dvon over the ropes to dry! Jindrak once again distracts Elias, pretending to complain about the officiating in the match as Cade runs along the apron, grabs Dvon by the head and yanks him down with a Stunner Guillotine!

Mark Jindrak gets back to his feet and takes Dvon by the head, placing him across the middle rope and using his knee to put pressure onto Dvon, choking him again and playing dirty. Once again the referee has to break the illegal tactic up and tell Jindrak to wrestle fairly, as Cade sneaks along the apron and kicks Dvon right on the temple to more heat, with the fans not pleased with the Champions match tactics. Jindrak covers Dvon 1.....kickout.

Jindrak now tags in Cade who is furious after the abuse he took at the hands of the Dudleyz earlier and shows it, pounding on Dvon when he is trying to get back to his feet with clubbing blows before ending the flurry with a hard kick into the midsection of Dvon.

Winners @ 12:39 - Cade & Jindrak
Retain World Tag Team Titles


Lilian Garcia: Here are your winners and STILL the World Tag Team Champions, Lance Cade & Mark Jindrak!

The crowd boos as once again our champions have cheated their way to a victory. The duo are in the ring with their titles, holding them up to huge heat while the Dudlezy are on the outside fuming

JR: I don't believe it! They cheated again! I am sick of these two, they aren't proper champions! They haven't won a match properly on PPV since they reformed in April!

King: What a great win for these two, they really are the future of tag team wrestling JR, not the overdone Dudleyz, they just weren't good enough tonight!

JR: Aw come on King you don't honestly believe that! The Dudleyz were in the driver's seat for most of this contest!

King: But you never let a Dudley behind the wheel JR and tonight they crashed it after a promising start!

JR: I really hope these two "Champions" and I say that term loosely in Cade & Jindrak get their cummuppons one day soon!


Bubba & Dvon then turn to the celebrating heels and slide into the ring!

The crowd erupts as Dvon slams down Cade from behind with the Saving Grace, while Bubba hammers at Jindrak with right hands. Bubba sends MJ to the ropes and MJ returns to be met with a 3D! The crowd erupts as the Dudleyz stand in the ring and turn their attention to the outside, to the table from earlier! Bubba & Dvon exit the ring and grab the table, sliding it into the ring. They set the table up in a position so it's in line with the corner

Bubba grabs Jindrak and places him ontop of the table, as Dvon grabs Cade and drags him to his feet. Bubba now mounts the middle rope as Dvon lifts Cade up into an atomic position, then places Cade in the grasp of Bubba who leaps off POWERBOMB CADE ONTO HIS PARTNER JINDRAK, THROUGH THE TABLE!

The crowd erupts with a *Holy Shit* chant as Bubba has that far away look in his eyes for a moment as the Dudleyz observe the wreckage they caused to the tag champions and leave the ring to a huge pop from the fans


JR: Well they didn't win the battle but it seems like the Dudleyz just won the war, for now.

King: That's just poor sportsmanship JR, the future of Tag Team Wrestling has been abused and tabled!

JR: And they thoroughly deserve it King!


Backstage now and Todd Grisham is standing by

Grisham: Ladies and gentlemen I am standing outside the locker room of Monty Brown, hoping to get a few words with him before his match momentarily with Carlito.

The door opens and instead of Monty Brown stepping out it is The Coach

Coach: Grisham I heard you. And here's your answer; you ain't gonna get to talk to Monty. Because my man is inside this room getting ready to go out and destroy Carlito. What everyone fails to see is that without direction, Monty was being held back and held down. Now that I'm by his side, I'm gonna take the Alpha Male to great feets on RAW!

Coach pauses

Coach: And that starts tonight when my man goes out to that ring and dismantles Carlito. You see Todd Carlito made a mistake, angering Monty a few weeks ago on RAW and he just made an even bigger mistake this past week when he spat the apple chunks in Monty's face, causing him to lose his match. So Carlito, you've got enough time to kiss your girl Torrie goodbye before you have to get out to that ring because I promise you and every single person watching this PPV tonight, that when Monty Brown is done with you, you will realise that Monty Brown...Ain't No Joke!

Crowd boos as Brown steps out and slams the door behind him

Brown: PERIOD!

Brown walks off looking extremely focused as we cut back to ringside

The crowd boos as *Alpha Male* hits and Monty Brown steps out on stage with The Coach seemingly prep talking him for his match

Lilian Garcia: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first from the Serenghetti, weighing in at 275 pounds, "The Alpha Male", Monty Brown!

Brown throws his fur coat down at ringside and gets into the ring raising his arms up as his name is announced. Brown starts bobbing up and down on the spot lightly as

*I Spit in the Face* hits and the crowd gives a good reaction as Carlito makes his way out with an apple in his hand and the beautiful Torrie Wilson by his side


Lilian Garcia: And from San Juan; Puerta Rico weighing in at 225 pounds, Carlito!

Carlito rolls into the ring and immediately he and Brown begin trading shots as the bell is rung

Match 3
Carlito w/Torrie vs Monty Brown w/The Coach


Carlito hits a left to Brown, who responds with a big right hand which rocks Carlito, who tries to keep in the fight with another left but Monty nails another heavy hitting shot, as Carlito goes down. Brown now sends Carlito to the ropes and Carlito rebounds back into a stiff clothesline! Brown goes to end it early 1.....2..kickout. Carlito was slow to react to kick out there. Monty gets to his feet and The Coach is nodding his head on the outside, making a motion for Brown to continue.
Brown sees Carlito getting to his feet and walks over to CCC, but Carlito was playing possum and kicks Brown in the gut, then places him in the corner and nails him with a knife edge chop! Carlito then socks Brown with a left hand, and then another, and another, and another as he begins to unload a flurry on the Alpha Male, but Monty shoves Carlito away to the mat, showcasing his power advantage.

Carlito is shocked at the raw power of Brown and runs back to Monty, jumping up to the middle buckle and pounding down on Brown with some punches as the crowd counts along 1-2-3-4-5-6-Brown shoves Carlito off him and down to the mat again. Carlito gets up quickly again, trying to keep ontop of the big man and hits him with another left hand, which Brown responds to with a right hand back to CCC. Carlito now tries to put a headlock on Brown, but Monty sends Carlito to the ropes instead and Carlito comes back into another stiff clothesline! Brown now taunts to get some heat from the fans while Coach is yelling "Stay on him!" from the outside. Torrie is also shown briefly with a concerned look on her face for her man.
Brown pulls Carlito up by his afro and scoops him up onto Brown's shoulder, and looks to take Carlito towards the corner, but Carlito drops out the back and uses Brown's own momentum to send the Alpha Male into the turnbuckle! Brown hits it and stumbles out in a daze, and Carlito meets him with a dropkick to the back of the head, and Monty is sent forward, back into the turnbuckles again. Carlito now rolls up Brown with a Schoolboy! 1....kickout.

Carlito gets up to his feet and notices Brown regaining his footing, and Carlito runs to the ropes and rebounds off them, coming back at Brown with a Corssbody, but BROWN CATCHES CARLITO MIDAIR! Carlito's eyes widen and he let's out an "Uh-oh" as Brown lifts Carlito into the air and drops him down side first over his knee with a Rib Breaker, before powering Carlito up again and planting him with a Front Slam! Brown covers 1.....2...Kickout. Just. Carlito already looks to be in serious trouble against his powerful opponent. Monty Brown now gets on his knees and rubs his elbow on the forehead of Carlito, just working on him.

Brown lands on the canvas and Carlito hits a Gun Packet right to the face of Monty Brown! Carlito covers 1....MONTY POWERS OUT, SENDING CARLITO FLYING OFF HIM!

Carlito is shocked as Brown continues to play the power game, and CCC realises he could be in for a long night at this rate.

Brown covers Carlito 1.....2...shoulder up.
Once again Carlito is slow to kick out. Brown now grabs Carlito by the head and places his leg over him, and also takes ahold of the left arm, locking Carlito in a Headscissors/Armbar combination. Brown keeps it sinched in, but Carlito is able to get his foot under the bottom rope to break the hold. Monty gets to his feet and pulls Carlito up. Brown now whips Carlito hard across the ring into the corner. The Alpha Male waits a moment, before charging in and connecting with the Alphalanche!

BROWN POWERS OUT AGAIN!

Carlito once again is surprised to see Brown get out of it so easily, even if he didn't kick out till late.
Carlito throws a left hand, scoring on the jaw of Brown and rebounds off the ropes looking to hit a clothesline, but Brown catches him coming in and wraps his arms around Carlito's waist, locking him in a Bear Hug!
Brown shakes Carlito around like a rag doll in the hold, squeezing the Caribbean superstar tightly as Carlito tries to grab the ropes, but cannot reach them. Carlito tries prying himself free by sticking his fingers into the eyes of the Alpha Male, but Brown increases the squeeze on Carlito who looks to be in seering pain and ends his attempt to escape the hold as his hands drop by his side, and Carlito looks to be fading out. Monty Brown is smiling meniacally as he keeps the Bear Hug on tight and the referee checks Carlito's hand once and it falls! Brown exhales as the ref checks Carlito again for the second time and again it falls! Torrie looks worried for her man on the outside, yelling "Come on Carlito" and pounding on the apron, which gets the fans involved and a *Car-li-to* chant begins as they hope to urge their fan favourite back into the match. The ref cautiously checks Carlito for a thrid time and drops the hand, but CARLITO KEEPS IT FROM DROPPING!

The crowd pops as Carlito begins to hit left hand after left hand to the skull of Monty Brown, who is starting to lose his grip on the Bear Hug. Carlito keeps going, with another left, and another, and another until finally Monty has to break the hold and holds his head for a moment, shaking the cobwebs loose. Carlito struggles back to his feet and Monty swings a right hand at him, but Carlito ducks under it and rebounds off the ropes, coming back at Monty with a clothesline, which doesn't take the Alpha Male off his feet! Brown wobbles around and Carlito is again taken by surprise, but snaps out of his momentary phase and gets a big head of steam up this time and rebounds off the ropes, this time coming at Monty with a Jumping Clothesline, which takes Brown off his feet! The crowd pops, as they can feel the match swinging to Carlito and CCC waits for Brown to get up before running to the ropes again and springing back with a Springboard Back Elbow Smash! The crowd pops for Carlito's athleticism as Carlito makes a cover on Brown

Kickout

Brown kicks out. Carlito wipes his forehead, getting rid of the sweat on him and gets to his feet, clutching at his back for a moment, still feeling the effects of the Bear Hug earlier. Carlito now steps out onto the apron and climbs the turnbuckles onto the top. Carlito balances himself and awaits for Brown to get back to a vertical base. Carlito leaps off and scores with a Missile Dropkick to Brown, but Brown hits the mat and rolls out to the floor, so Carlito cannot make a cover. Carlito pulls himself up and mutters "Das not cool". Coach is attending to Brown on the outside and Carlito sees this. Carlito runs to the ropes and dives through them with a Suicide Dive, BUT COACH SEES IT AND PULLS MONTY BROWN OUT OF THE WAY AS CARLITO DIVES RIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE!
The crowd "Aw's" loudly in dissapointment as the referee begins to utilise his ten count. Torrie Wilson looks upset and worried and ...hes around to her boyfriend's aid.

The Alpha Male gets back to his feet as Coach is yelling "Pin him Monty!". Brown goes over to get Carlito and Torrie stands up, in the way of Monty. Brown points to Torrie, telling her to move but Torrie refuses, but The Coach grabs Torrie and pulls her away from Carlito to heat from the fans while Brown grabs the dead weight of Carlito's body and rolls him back into the ring before making a cover on him

The crowd erupts and Torrie is slightly joyful to see her man somehow stay in the match. Coach is starting to look a little uneasy at ringside.
Brown makes another cover on Carlito 1.....2...kickout! Monty gets up and glares at the referee. Brown pulls a seemingly out of it Carlito back to his feet and scoops him up, but Carlito slips out the back from no where and connects with the Backcracker!
The crowd goes wild but Carlito is in no condition to make a pinfall as he goes back down to the mat, and both men are down. Again the crowd begins to chant *Car-li-to* as Carlito is the first of the competitors to stir. He crawls his way towards Monty Brown, but Brown has come to also and is getting up to his feet. Carlito struggles to get back to his feet, clearly not all there after crashing into the barricade.

Carlito comes to Brown and clubs him across the back. Carlito tries to send Brown to the corner, but Brown reverses it and sends Carlito into the corner instead. Monty follows in but Carlito jumps onto the middle buckle and then flips back over the incoming Brown, who runs into the turnbuckle! Carlito jumps up, looking to hit a second Backcracker and grabs onto Brown's shoulders, looking to pull him down, but the Alpha Male smartly grabs onto the ropes, allowing him to stay on his feet while Carlito falls to the mat back first! Carlito gets up holding his spine and walks right into the Circle Of Life from Monty Brown! Cover 1.....2...KICKOUT! Carlito kicks out of the Neckbreaker variation and Brown yells out "WHAT? WHAT?" annoyed that CCC kicked out of a potential winning pinfall.
Brown covers Carlito again, hooking his near leg 1.....2...SHOULDER UP! Brown slaps the mat in f...tration and gets up, as Coach makes a sign to keep calm.

Brown nods and gets up, then frowns down at Carlito who is crawling away from Brown, trying to get a breather. Brown follows Carlito, almost stalking him. Brown slams a big shot down over Carlito as CCC tries to pull himself up in the corner. Brown then brings Carlito up and places him in the corner, unloading with some body shots to Carlito. Brown now takes a big swing to finish off the combo, but Carlito counters it, turning Brown's momentum and spinning out of the corner, and dropping Brown to the mat face first with the Complete Shot! The crowd pops, but Carlito doesn't go for the cover on Monty! Carlito steps out onto the apron instead and then uses the ropes to jump up onto them, and then manages to pull off the Double Springboard Corkscrew Senton Splash onto Brown! The crowd eats up the great move by Carlito as he hooks the near leg of Brown for the pinfall

COACH PUTS MONTY BROWN'S FOOT ON THE ROPE!

The ref stops the count and the crowd boos Coach loudly who smirks and walks around the ring like nothing happened. Carlito gets off the lateral press on Brown and looks over at Coach who is pulling the collars of his jacket, trying to act "cool" and Carlito looks at him in disgust, before rolling out to the outside and standing behind The Coach. The crowd cheers as Coach realises that Carlito is behind him, and Coach turns around, pleading with Carlito not to do anything, but Carlito grabs Coach and looks around at the fans, who cheer him, as Carlito tosses Coach into the ring!
Coach is backing off across the ring as Carlito takes his apple and gets into the ring, taking a crunch of the fruit, before chucking it out to the floor. Coach is cowering like a scared little child in the corner and Carlito chews a bit, then screws up his face and spits the apple chunks in the face of Coach!

The crowd erupts, loving it, but Monty Brown blindsides Carlito, rebounding off the ropes and connecting with a savage POUNCE! The crowd is silenced by the wild shoulder tackle as Carlito goes flying into the middle of the ring and Brown makes the elementary pinfall on Carlito

Winner @ 11:53 - Monty Brown

Lilian Garcia: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner, Monty Brown!

The crowd gives heat as Brown gets to his feet and lets out a roar of sorts, pounding on his chest. The Coach is wiping the apple chunks off his face and joins his client in the middle of the ring, raising his arm to more heat before looking down at Carlito and flicking the remainder of the apple chunks back on Carlito

JR: That damn Coach! He saw his "man" was gonna get beaten by Carlito and he clearly put his foot on the ropes to save it!

King: Can you imagine what Coach will have to talk about now JR? He's a successful manager now!

JR: He's still the same snake of a coward he's always been, just that now he's using his antics with an already capable wrestler, a machine in that matter in the name of Monty Brown, and folks this man could be destined for bigger things like Coach mentioned earlier, although you have to wonder how Carlito will react to this loss...

Backstage now and Paul Heyman is with Hardcore Holly, moments away from the Inter Promotional Hardcore title match. They are given heat by the crowd

Holly: Look Paul I appreciate what you've done, but this is my match.

Heyman: Bob, I am not doubting you for a second, but it's just that this has to go ahead my way, I mean if Mick Foley upstages me again I don...

Holly: What? What does this have to do with Foley? I thought this was about proving which brand is the better, and that SmackDown! deserves to hold the Hardcore title, not RAW! What happened to that?

Heyman: No no, don't get me wrong Bob it is. But just think of this as an alterior motive for victory.

Holly: Paul, I appreciate you coming here tonight with me, I really do. But I have a ton of respect for both Rhyno & Mick Foley. Those two men have greatly helped the cause of Hardcore wrestling over the years and for that I have all the respect in the world for them. It's not like I've never been in a damn Hardcore match in my life Paul.

Heyman: I know.

Holly: I was Hardcore Champion more times than you could poke a stick at!

Heyman: Yes but...

Holly: Look, you came here with me, now either you can come down to the ring with me, or stay back here. Just let me do this my way and prove that I've still got it.


Heyman looks dissapointed but eventually nods his head in angreement

Heyman: OK Bob I just gotta tie up a loose end, I'll meet you out there.

Holly walks off as Heyman pulls out his cell phone

Heyman: It's me. No he didn't go along with it. Of course we're gonna go ahead with it. When I give you the signal. OK good.

Heyman hangs up and walks off as we come back to ringside

JR: I don't like the sounds of that King! Paul Heyman is one sneaky bastard and I bet whatever he was talking about over the phone was not for the good of the upcoming match!

King: Yay, more Extremely Crappy Wrestling nostalgia!

JR: This is gonna be a slobberknocker folks!

Lilian Garcia: And now, the Special Enforcer...

Everyone is on their feet waiting to see who it is, and we wait more than ten seconds with nothing happening. Foley looks a tad worried as twenty and even thirty seconds pass and still nothing. Garcia seems confused, but announces him again

Holly rebounds off the ropes and looks to whack Rhyno with it on the run but Rhyno meets Holly with a shoulder to the midsection. Rhyno then drives Holly back first into the turnbuckle and begins ramming mutiple shoulder shots into the gut of Holly. Rhyno now sends Holly across the ring at a tremendous velocity and Holly hits the turnbuckle, immediately being taken off his feet from the impact. Holly holds his back as Rhyno walks over to Hardcore Holly and covers him 1.....2.shoulder up.
Rhyno rolls off Holly and picks up the roadsign. Holly gets to his feet and stumbles right into a shot from it, which sends Holly back down. Rhyno hooks the leg of Hardcore again 1.....2..kickout.
Rhyno stands up and looks at Heyman who is standing on the outside looking in, Rhyno cracks a smile and shakes his head at his former employer.

Rhyno now goes back over to Holly and clubs him on the back. Rhyno places Holly against the ropes and goes to hit him with a punch, but Holly blocks it and throws Rhyno face first into the cage! Rhyno's head smacks off it and the Man Beast drops to a knee momentarily and gets back up, to get an inch pefect dropkick to the jaw from Hardcore Holly! Holly covers Rhyno 1.....shoulder up.
Hardcore gets up and stomps on Rhyno who is trying to get back to his feet. Holly then sees a kendo stick attached to the cage and yanks it off. Holly heads back over to Rhyno and whacks Rhyno over the back with the kendo stick to a nasty crack heard around the arena. Holly pulls Rhyno up and whips him to the ropes and meets Rhyno on the rebound with a crackling shot to the ribs of Rhyno! Rhyno falls down to his knees while Holly swings the stick back, looking to crown Rhyno with it and Holly brings the stick down, only for Rhyno to at the last second get a left hand to the gut of Holly, who drops the kendo stick.

Holly however roughly hits Rhyno on the head with a right hand, then begins to club Rhyno across the back and neck area a few times. Rhyno falls backwards and onto his back and Holly covers Rhyno 1.....kickout.
Holly picks the kendo stick up again and now uses it to choke out Rhyno, putting him in a sleeper hold type move. Rhyno kicks and flails wildly, as Holly draws the breath out of the Hardcore Champion. Holly reliquishes the hold after about fifteen seconds. Rhyno is shown coughing a spluttering, gasping for air as Holly grabs him and brings him back to his feet. Holly gets Rhyno in a front facelock, and looks to be setting Rhyno up for a Suplex, but Rhyno puts the breaks on it and loads Holly into the air, before Suplexing Holly down across the ropes, hanging him out over the top one! Holly rolls around on the mat holding his throat area as Rhyno regains his footing and walks over to the kendo stick that Holly dropped earlier.

Rhyno picks the weapon up and measures Hardcore Holly with it, and as Holly gets to his feet, he turns around and is blasted on the skull with it! The impact of the shot snaps the stick in half! Holly sells the move well, falling down slowly like all the lights went out and Rhyno covers him 1.....2...KICKOUT! Holly just kicks out.
Rhyno knows how close he was to an early win there and doesn't let up, noticing it's his turn to apply the hurt on Holly. Rhyno brings the roadsign over that was dropped earlier and hits Holly across the head with it as Hardcore stumbles back into the ropes and bounces back into another blasting shot from the roadsign which knocks Holly down again and Rhyno covers 1.....2...kickout.
Rhyno throws back his hair that is hanging down in front of him. Holly rolls away from Rhyno who is taking control of the match now and the Man Beast gets up and takes a moment to acknowledge the crowd by pounding on his chest and raising his arms in the air and the crowd erupts breaking out into another *E-C-Dub* chant.

Rhyno now has noticed another weapon attached to the cage and walks over to the far side, pulling a black bag off the cage and resting it on the canvas, as Rhyno notices Holly stirring at the opposite end of the ring. Rhyno heads over to Holly, and is met by a barage of Fire Extinguisher liquid! Holly has pulled it off while he was recouperating and just sprayed Rhyno in the face. The Man Beast is blinded and cannot see where he is going, and Holly locks him from behind in a Full Nelson, then lifts him up and plants Rhyno with a Full Nelson Slam! Holly makes a lateral press 1.....2...KICKOUT! Close call as the Champion was almost defeated.
Holly now drags Rhyno into the bottom of the corner and begins to stomp away at him with a dozen or so stomps to the chest area of Rhyno. Hardcore then walks across the ring to the black bag Rhyno pulled off the cage and opens it, revealing a BOWLING BALL!

The crowd pops, not having seen this object used in a Hardcore match since the days of Al Snow, and Holly takes ahold of the ball and looks out into the crowd, garnishing majorly heat although there are a few pops because some fans know what's coming next. Holly turns to Rhyno and smiles then BOWLS THE BOWLING BALL TOWARDS RHYNO, WHICH ROLLS ALONG THE MAT AND STOPS IN THE GROIN AREA OF RHYNO!
The crowd "Awww's" loudly as Rhyno's eyes burst apart and he lets out a loud yell in pain as he clutches at his crotch area, rolling around on the mat, kicking the mat with his feet trying to take away the sensation pain from his groin area. The referee Mick Foley is shown comically expressing his awe at the move, as Holly drops down and covers Rhyno and Foley makes the fall

TH-NO!

Rhyno just kicks out of the pinfall.
Hardcore Holly seems abit dissapointed that Rhyno managed to stay in the match after having his privates mushed.

The momentum is shifting back to Holly here, who seems to have limited Rhyno severely for the next couple of minutes after temporarily blinding him and damaging the family jewels. Holly now gets up and sees another weapon that has caught his interest, the saucepan! Holly pulls the kitchen utensil off and looks at it, not quite sure why it's in here, but finds it a useful way to inflict more damage. Rhyno is down, holding his groin still while his other arm is behind his back, unseen to the eye. Holly comes towards Rhyno with the saucepan and looks to clobber him with it, but RHYNO PULLS THE EXTINGUISHER FROM BEHIND HIS BACK AND SPRAYS HOLLY IN THE FACE! The crowd erupts as Rhyno gets one back over Holly, using the extinguisher on him. Holly drops the saucepan and fumbles around, unable to see anything. Rhyno wipes the liquid from his face, although not completely, enough to see and he struggles back to his feet gingerly, keeping one arm down above his groin area, with it obviously still extremely tender. Rhyno picks up the saucepan and hits Holly over the back of the head with it and then makes a sloppy cover 1.....2...kickout.

Rhyno is breathing heavily, still in a ton of pain obviously selling the effects of the bowling ball spot well. He rolls off Holly and crawls to the ropes, pulling himself up, while Holly too gets to his feet, in a daze, still with his vision impared. Rhyno throws a left hand to Holly which scores, Rhyno then goes to whip Holly to the ropes, but Holly counters it and sends Rhyno to them instead. Rhyno rebounds off them and Holly swings a clothesline, hoping that it connects, but Rhyno ducks it, grabs Holly and takes him down with a Belly to Belly Side Suplex! Rhyno covers Holly 1.....2..shoulder up.
The Sacramento crowd now begins a *Let's Go Rhyno* chant as the match rages on.
A brief shot on the outside shows Heyman showing some concern about the situation his superstar is in now.
Rhyno slowly gets back to his feet and flops onto the ropes, taking the chance to catch a breather as Holly rolls towards the side of the cage.

Rhyno comes towards him and grabs Holly, pulling him up to a vertical base. Rhyno sends Holly to the ropes and catches him with a Powerslam! Rhyno covers again 1.....2...kickout.
Foley holds a two up to Rhyno, who nods, and looks around the cage, planning his next attack. Rhyno grabs a cookie sheet off the cage, and also a steel chair.
Rhyno drops the chair on the floor and pulls Hardcore Holly towards it. Rhyno now tries to drive Holly with the Rhyno Driver, but Holly reverses it, and trips Rhyno down by his legs, with Rhyno's head whipping back and smacking onto the steel chair! Holly now crawls over and picks up the cookie sheet and gets to his feet, and makes a motion for Rhyno to get up too. Rhyno does, holding the back of his head and Holly whacks Rhyno with the cookie sheet. Rhyno wobbles but doesn't go down, as Holly hits Rhyno on the head again, and still Rhyno doesn't go down! The cookie sheet has been dented after being wrapped around Rhyno's hard skull, so Holly rebounds off the ropes and comes at Rhyno with a Flying Cookie Sheet shot, this time taking Rhyno down! Holly makes a cover

Foley tells Holly it was two, and Holly puts his hands on his hips and looks down at Rhyno wondering what to do next.
Hardcore gets up and is staring at something attached to the cage wall, the camera focuses on the item, which is a table! The crowd pops as Holly tugs with the table, pulling it off. Holly walks towards the corner and sets the table up. Hardcore now grabs Rhyno and brings him over to the table, and lifts Rhyno onto his shoulders, going for the Alabamaslam! Rhyno kicks wildly, trying to escape and Holly ends up dropping him to his feet, where Rhyno rebounds off the ropes and goes for the GORE! Holly jumps to the side, avoiding the contact! Rhyno comes off the opposite side of the ropes and Holly gets him in a front facelock, trying to Suplex him through the table, but Rhyno blocks it!

Holly rolls over Rhyno and grabs the steel chair, gets up and the Man Beast gets up to his feet, Holly launches the chair towards him, but RHYNO DUCKS AND THE CHAIR SMACKS FOLEY RIGHT IN THE FACE! The chair hits referee Mick Foley right in the face and Foley falls back, and gets TANGLED IN THE ROPES! Foley looks out of it and Holly puts his hands on his head, obviously not wanting this to happen. Meanwhile on the outside Paul Heyman is smirking evily.

NO REFEREE!

Rhyno now realises that Foley is out of it and pounds into the mat in f...tration, knowing he could've had the match won there. Rhyno gets up and sees the steel chair from earlier and places down near the corner, and pulls Hardcore Holly up to his feet and grapples with him into the corner. Rhyno slams Holly's head into the top turnbuckle, and then hops onto the middle rope. Rhyno now grabs a dazed Holly and pulls him in, before lifting him up in the Rhyno Driver position! The crowd comes to their feet as Rhyno looks out to them, and then leaps off WITH A RHYNO DRIVER, DRIVING HARDCORE HOLLY ONTO THE STEEL CHAIR! The crowd goes wild and a huge *Holy Shit* chant starts, while Paul Heyman looks flabbergasted on the outside. The crowd now breaks out into another booming *E-C-Dub* chant as both men are out in the ring, and the referee Mick Foley is still out of it tangled in the ropes.

All of a sudden, Paul Heyman starts waving towards the titantron. The crowd wonders what he's doing, and after a few moments a tow truck begins backing out from the side, next to the stage and down beside the entrance ramp. The truck has tinted windows and thus we cannot see who's driving it! The truck stops at ringside and Heyman grabs the towing hook and attaches it to one of the cage sides! Heyman then yells out "Go, tear it down!" and the truck drives forward, ripping one of the sides of the cage off!
The crowd begins to boo as the side comes down and now the ring is open. The truck stops and the engine turns off and out from the doors steps RANDY ORTON & BOOKER T!
The crowd boos louder as Heyman smiles and the two men hop down and begin making their way to the ring, while Heyman is now waving out into the crowd, and we see why as a bunch of SmackDown! wrestler's including Mark Henry, Orlando Jordan, Simon Dean, Jamie Noble, Kid Kash, Gregory Helms, Nunzio, Idol Stevens, KC James and William Regal all file out from the crowd and hop over the barricade into the ring.

They join Orton & Booker in the ring, and as Rhyno comes to, he stands up and is facing a wall of SmackDown! superstars! The crowd is booing as Heyman points towards him, and they attack Rhyno! The crowd boos the hell outta this, as Heyman is nodding and smiling, yelling and instructing. After the group finishes putting the boots to Rhyno, Heyman gets in the ring and splashes some water over Hardcore Holly, trying to wake him up. Holly is stirring and he realises what's going on. Holly looks pissed off that Heyman is cheating and tells him "Get them outta here, I can do this!"
Heyman shakes his head and makes a motion for Holly to finish Rhyno off. But Holly shakes his head! The crowd pops for Holly's sportsmanship, but Heyman screams "Do it or I'll have you damn job Holly I promise you!"
Hardcore Holly glares at Heyman and bites his lower lip, before grabbing Rhyno and starting to pull him to his feet when all of a sudden the titantron cuts to the backstage area and we hear the sounds of tyre's screeching, and a huge black 4x4 pickup speeds into the parking lot, as the crowd goes wild, and all the SmackDown! superstars look worried as


*GLASS SHATTERS* hits and the crowd comes unglued with a THUNDEROUS ovation and STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN hops out of the truck and jogs through the halls, and steps out through the curtain as the fans go apeshit!

JR: STONE COLD! BY GAWD IT'S STONE COLD!

King: Look out!

JR: He's back! The texas rattlesnake is back!


Paul Heyman's jaw has dropped to the floor and the SD! superstars aren't sure what to think as Austin makes his way down the ramp, with Heyman yelling "Stop him!"
Idol Stevens & KC James step through the ropes and come to Austin, but Austin meets them both with right hands, and then gives a Stunner to Stevens! Austin now boots James in the gut and gives him a Stunner! The crowd is going wild as Jamie Noble is the next to come for Austin, but he is knocked down with a right hand, then one for Simon Dean, one for Kid Kash, one for Nunzio, one for Regal, one for Jordan. Austin grabs a chair from beside the guard rail and crack! Hits Nunzio! Crack! Hits Noble! Hits Jordan! Hits Kash! Hits Regal! Austin then boots Dean in the midsection and gives him the finger before giving him a Stunner!

The crowd is going crazy as Heyman looks petrified as Gregory Helms rebounds off the ropes and comes flying at Austin, only to eat a steel chair as Austin puts it up in Helms' face! Austin slides into the ring and Heyman is standing behind Henry, Orton & Booker. Henry comes for Austin and Austin hits him with a right hand, and another and another, but Henry hardly budges! Austin then kicks the World's Strongest Man in the groin! Henry hobbles around right into a Stunner! Meanwhile Heyman, Orton & Booker have scurried out of the ring and are heading out into the crowd as Austin stands above the carnage, surveying the damage, before un tangling Foley from the ropes! Foley has come to now although he's a little wobbly.
Hardcore Holly puts his hands up, as if to say "Don't hit me". Austin strokes his beard, thinking about it, and decides not to!

Holly turns around and is met by a GORE! The crowd goes wild as Rhyno connects with the GORE! Rhyno covers and Mick Foley counts the fall

Backstage now and Todd Grisham is standing by

Grisham: Ladies and gentlemen, I am standing here with Christian, who is moments away from a triple threat match that will also involve Rob Van Dam and Shelton Benjamin...

Christian steps into the picture with Tomko by his side, to pretty loud heat from the fans, although there are some "Peeps" here in Sacramento

Grisham: Christian, you've been talking big the last few weeks about being RAW's MVP, being RAW's Mr. Monday Night and Mr. PPV, and it seems that RVD & Shelton Benjamin had a problem with that. The question is, when it comes time for the match, can you back your talk up?

Christian looks at Todd, then at Tomko, and Tomko laughs as Christian swipes the mic off Todd

Christian: What kind of idiotic question is that Todd? Of course I can back my words up, I speak the truth for my peeps. I'm surprised you're still in a job with the bad level of interviewing you exert. And it just makes you look even sillier when it's next to me, Captain Charisma!

Crowd boos

Christian: Thing is Todd, I'm the "it" thing on RAW at the moment. Tomorrow, you won't be hearing about AJ Styles finally winning the Intercontinental Title, you won't hear about Stone Cold's return just a few minutes ago, you won't hear anything about The Rock, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Vince McMahon, Eugene, softball or Saint Nick, they'll be talking about Christian, and how he stole the show at Unforgiven.

More boos

Christian: I mean if not for a regular dose of vitamin C, the millions that witness RAW would be these drone like figures, cheering for the likes of unsuccessful guys like Rob Van Dam. I bet each and every fan, deep down inside, everynight, goes to sleep thinking "Thank God for Christian".

*You Suck* chant is heard

Christian: Nothing on RAW is going right Todd, except Christian. Mick Foley is running the place worse than the Sacramento Kings running a standard play...

More heat for the cheap insult on the hometown basketball franchise

Christian: We've got Casino's being run backstage, guys beating the hell outta each other all over the place, SmackDown! rostered superstars invading, it's a catastrophe. Then, we've got Rob Van Dam & Shelton Benjamin. These two claim to be what I am. Rob, maybe ten years ago you were there, and Shelton, maybe in another ten years you'll be there, but right now, it's Christian's time to shine baby! I will no longer be held down. My peeps need to be satisfied, and what better way to do that than earn the bragging rights for the "it" guy on RAW? Tonight is the beginning of a new era, the era of Christian, and Toddy boy, that's how I roll!

Christian & Tomko walk off to heat as Grisham sends it back to ringside

JR: I hope someone shuts Christian up! There's only so much you can take!

King: He speaks the truth JR, he truly is going to be RAW's saviour!

JR: Ugh...


*Ain't No Stoppin' Me* hits and Shelton Benjamin makes his way to the ring to moderate heel heat

The crowd begins chanting *R-V-D* loudly as all three men slowly move towards each other, closing in on the center of the ring. Shelton Benjamin says something to RVD, which RVD responds to, and the two begin to talk trash. Christian stands there at first smiling, but soon gets annoyed he's being left out and taps on their shoulders, grabbing their attention, and Christian then pounds on his chest and points to the crowd to heat from the fans. RVD turns to Christian and pushes him, which is the opportunity Shelton needed as he jumps RVD from behind with a shot to the back of the head, taking Mr. PPV off his feet.

Just as things were looking up, we were going to see the best diva in the business Lita take the Women's Championship off that princess Trish Stratus, but all of a sudden, things fell apart. Trish won, somehow, and then you Rock, decided to return after you got the beating of your life at my hands weeks before, and add insult to injury. Well Rock, you should never have gotten in my way. I don't want this, I want to be where I deserve to be, and that is atop of the RAW mountain, with the WWE Championship around my waist!

Heat

Edge: All my life, I have had obstacles thrown in my path, stopping me from conquering the WWE. Well, no longer. Tonight, Rock and Trish, you two are going to have all of my f...trations that I have bottled inside of my over the years, spilt out onto you two and then there will be no one and nothing stopping me from reclaiming my spot as the main event, the draw card, the big player on RAW!

Edge storms off with Lita as we come back to ringside

JR: Edge is all fired up King, but can he and Lita overcome the team of The Rock & Trish Stratus?

Trish now ascends the turnbuckle to the middle rope and jumps off, only for Lita to put a foot up and catch her coming down right on the jaw! Trish falls backwards, slumping down against the bottom buckle holding her jaw as Lita gets back up to her feet still shaken after the Stratusphere. She comes for Trish and stomps on Trish, and again, and again, as she repeatedly stomps at Trish in the corner. Lita looks extremely focused on Trish here and drags her out into the middle of the ring before dropping an elbow onto her chest. Lita covers 1.....2.kickout.
Lita now begins talking trash to Trish saying "Come on beauty queen" and kicking her softly, toying with Stratus.
Lita pulls Trish up and hits a fierce shot to the face of Trish, then scoop slams her to the mat and drops a leg across her. Lita covers again 1.....2.kickout.

Lita brings Trish up to her feet and whips Trish into the corner of Edge. Lita follows in with a raised forearm shot to Trish, catching her right on the jaw. Lita now begins to distract Chad Patton, complaining about something while Edge uses this to his advantage and begins choking Stratus with the tag rope to huge heat from the fans. The Rock bursts into the ring looking to make the save, but Patton blocks him, telling him to get back onto the apron, while Edge gets into the ring with Lita and the two plant Trish with a Double Back Drop! Edge gets back onto the apron and Lita calls the referee over and makes the cover

Kickout

Trish kicks out and Rock looks on from the apron concerned for her as Lita walks over to her corner and TAGS EDGE IN! The crowd boos heavily as Edge gets into the ring grinning sadistically, looking down at the hurt Trish Stratus. Edge pulls Trish up and holds her there, smiling at her before kicking her in the gut and rebounding off the ropes, taking her down with a Spinning Neckbreaker! Crowd boos Edge again as the Rated R Superstar just smiles at Trish who is hapless on the mat, weighing half of Edge's weight.
Edge now turns to The Rock and mocks him, doing a half assed attempt at the People's Eyebrow which infuriates The Rock as he gets into the ring, but again Chad Patton stops him telling him to wait on the apron. As this is happening, Edge drags Trish back to the corner of he and Lita and tags Lita back into the match.
Lita now presses her knee into the throat area of Trish, draining the air from the Women's Champion as he yells more insults at Trish.

Patton finally realises this after Rock gets back on the apron and breaks up the illegal tactic, but Lita nails Trish with a boot to the gut as Stratus regains her footing. Lita goes for the Inverted Twist Of Fate, but Trish sends Lita into the ropes, only for Lita to come back taking Trish down with a handful of hair. Lita again begins slamming Trish's head into the mat repeatedly, and then unloads on Stratus with some wild right hands right to the face to Trish. Lita stops pummeling at Trish and makes a cover on her 1.....2...KICKOUT! So close to seeing the end of this match. Lita is slightly agitated by this but doesn't let it get the better of her as she brings Trish to a vertical base, only for Trish to break free of Lita's grasp and hit a right hand to her! Trish hits another, and Lita swings one back, only for Trish to block it and again nail Lita with a shot to the head.

Trish now sends Lita to the ropes and looks to meet her on the return with a back body drop, but Lita counters it, taking Trish down again with a headscissors takedown! The crowd begins to boo Lita as she gets to her feet snickering down at Trish who is being controlled here in this match. A *Slut* chant begins from the fans which upsets Lita as she tries to get the crowd stop, only fueling them to make the chant louder. Lita bites her lower lip looking very upset, before walking over to the turnbuckle and climbing up to the top. Lita rotates around so she is facing into the crowd and takes a second to catch her balance before LEAPING OFF WITH A MOONSAULT! NO ONE HOME! TRISH ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND LITA SPLATS ONTO THE CANVAS! The crowd pops as finally Trish has a chance to get back into this match. Both divas are down and the crowd is making some noise, being spurred on to do so by The Rock who is pacing back and forth along the apron, willing Trish to get to him to make the tag.

Both divas begin to stir and both crawl towards their partner's corners, but it's Lita who is able to make a tag to Edge! Edge gets into the ring and darts across, grabbing Trish by her leg and pulling her away from The Rock, back into the middle of the ring. Trish gets up and balances herself, going for an Enzuiguri, but Edge avoids it and then flips Trish over with a modified slam. Edge covers 1.....2...SHOULDER UP! Trish manages to get her shoulder up.
Edge pulls his hair back and exhales loudly, not expecting Trish to be so resiliant. Edge pulls Trish onto her backside and locks in a Sleeper Hold. Edge doesn't seem to be squeezing to tight, but it's enough to weaken Stratus even more and seemingly make her fade out of the contest. Chad Patton takes Trish by the left arm and raises it, then lets it go, checking to see if she's still in this match, and TRISH KEEPS HER ARM UP!

The crowd cheers and Edge seems surprised as Trish struggles her way back to her feet and begins elbowing Edge to the midsection repeadtedly, but Edge won't let his grip go. Trish then tilts her head forward and slams it back into the face of Edge, headbutting her way out of the hold! Trish runs to the ropes and rebounds off them, right into a Spinning Wheel Kick from Edge, taking Trish clean off her feet to a loud smack as the boot connects with the head of Stratus. Edge covers

ROCK BREAKS IT UP!

The crowd pops as Rock gets into the ring and stomps on Edge's head, breaking up the pinfall. Edge is furious with The Rock and gets up gritting his teeth at the People's Champion. Edge then glares back down at Trish, who is beginning to stir, and Edge walks over to the corner, and crouches down, setting up Trish Stratus for a Spear! The crowd boos Edge loudly as the Rated R Superstar bobs up and down in the corner, ready to uncoil with the Spear as across the ring, Trish is using the ropes to pull herself up. Trish turns around and EDGE CHARGES IN LOOKING FOR THE SPEAR, BUT TRIsH EVADES IT WITH THE MATRIX MOVE AND EDGE ENDS UP SPEARING HIMSELF INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! The crowd comes alive as Trish leaps across to the oustretched hand of The Rock and makes the hot tag to the Brahma Bull, sending the crowd into a frenzy!

Rock steps into the ring and runs through Edge with a clothesline, then rebounds off the ropes and hits another clothesline, turning Edge inside out! Rock gets Edge up and sends him to the ropes before catching him on the return and planting him to the mat with a Samoan Drop! Cover and a hook of the leg 1.....2..kickout by Edge!
Rock now gets up and turns to the ring apron, spotting Lita! The crowd erupts as Rock stands there, frowning at Lita after her involvement in the attack on The Rock on RAW weeks ago, and Lita pleads with Rock not to do anything, and Rock surprisingly turns away from Lita! NO! Rock turns back, grabs Lita and pulls her into the ring! The crowd pops as Lita backs away from The Rock, holding her hands up still pleading with Rock not to hurt her. Rock looks into the crowd and they give a huge pop as Rock takes Lita, but Edge saves his girlfriend, clubbing The Rock from behind!

The crowd gives Edge big heat as he pummels at The Rock against the ropes with his right hands while Lita rolls out to the outside. Edge now sends The Rock to the ropes, but Rock rebounds back with a Flying Clothesline, taking Edge off his feet! ROCK KIPS UP! The crowd erupts as The Rock nips back to his feet. Meanwhile Edge gets back to his feet seeing stars and turns around, right into a SPINEBUSTER FROM THE ROCK! The crowd gets on their feet as Rock stands above Edge at the shoulders and takes off his elbow pad, tossing it out into the crowd. Rock now hits the ropes and runs to the opposite side of the ring before rebounding back again and dropping THE PEOPLE'S ELBOW TO EDGE! Rock makes a cover, hooking the far leg

EGDE IS ABLE TO GET A SHOULDER OFF THE MAT JUST IN TIME!

Rock thought he had it there, wincing as he pulls himself to his feet. Rock now sets himself for the Rock Bottom, placing his hands on his knees telling Edge to get up. Edge slowly pulls himself up, breathing heavily and gasping for air and turns around into The Rock's grasp! But Lita this time saves Edge, hitting Rock on the back! This doesn't even affect The Rock, who drops Edge and turns to Lita again, glaring at her. Lita once again realises she's made a mistake getting involved and tries to run off, but Rock grabs her by the hair! HOWEVER, EDGE GRABS ROCK BY THE HEAD FROM BEHIND AND PLANTS HIM WITH THE EDGE-O-MATIC! The crowd boos as Edge pulls Rock's legs back, with the pinfall following up

ROCK KICKS OUT!

The crowd erupts as Rock kicks out and Edge can't believe it.
Edge gets in Chad Patton's face, barking at him, telling him to make a proper count and stop "screwing" him over. The crowd starts another loud *Rocky* chant as Edge brings the People's Champion to his feet and nails The Rock with a right hand. Edge now kicks Rock in the gut and goes for the Edgeacution, but Rock counters it into The People's DDT! The crowd pops but Rock isn't able to make a cover, as both men are down. Meanwhile on the outside, Lita has grabbed Trish Stratus' Women's title and slides into the ring with it. The Rock gets to his feet and Lita comes towards him, looking to blast The Rock with the title and get herself DQ'd, but Trish Stratus comes from the side and tackles Lita to the mat to a big pop from the fans! Trish pummels at Lita with rights and lefts as Lita tries to cover up to no avail.

Rock sees that Edge has recovered and is leaning against the ropes. Rock comes to the Rated R Superstar, but Edge gets a foot up in the face of The Rock! Rock stumbles away and Edge waits for The Rock to turn back and Edge runs at him going for the Spear, but Rock sidesteps it and sends Edge out over the ropes to the floor, with Edge accidentally making contact with Lita who is fighting with Trish on the apron, and Chad Patton counts this as a tag. Rock tags Trish into the action also and then hops out going after Edge, while the two women become the legal competitors in the match again. Lita tries to scoop slam Trish, but Stratus slips out the back and takes Lita with a rollup 1.....2...NO! LITA JUST GETS OUT OF IT! On the outside Edge counters a grapple by The Rock and shoves him into the ringpost face first! Back to the action inside the ring, Trish goes to hit a right hand to Lita, but Lita blocks it and pulls Trish in, going for the Twist Of Fate, onyl for Trish to send Lita away and Lita comes back into a CHICK KICK! TRISH NAILS THE CHICK KICK!

Trish falls backwards, still sore after earlier but then gets back to her feet, as Edge slides into the ring and Trish gets up right into a SPEAR FROM EDGE! EDGE DRILLS TRISH WITH THE SPEAR! The crowd boos like crazy as Edge now drags Lita's body and drapes her arm over the out cold Trish Stratus and Chad Patton has no choice but to count the fall

Winners @ 15:39 - Edge & Lita

The crowd gives extreme heat as Edge helps Lita out of the ring and grins his evil grin while The Rock is by Trish's side in the ring, pointing to Edge and yelling at him for his actions

Lilian Garcia: Here are your winners, Edge & Lita!

The heat continues as Edge smirks as does Lita and the two lock lips on stage to more heat while The Rock shakes his head at them, continuing to attend to Trish, who hasn't moved since the Spear

JR: What a no good son of a bitch! Edge is one poor excuse for a human being! He just Speared Trish Stratus! Just like he did to Mickie James two weeks ago on RAW, Edge has delivered his devastating finisher to a woman!

King: I'm a huge fan of Edge JR, but I gotta agree, that was a bad move and by the looks of things The Rock is gonna make sure Edge pays for that.

JR: It's disgusting, he wasn't even the legal competitor! It was Trish and Lita who were tagged in, not Trish and Edge!


The Rock helps Trish Stratus out of the ring with Trish holding her ribs as Rock talks to her and we switch backstage to see Triple H taping up, he gets a MAJOR pop from the fans. The Game then takes a sip of his water and exits the DX locker room by himself tonight

The scene cuts to another part of the backstage area and we see Vince McMahon and Shawn Michaels in another locker room. The duo are given huge heat as they are seen by the crowd. HBK is dressed in street gear, not bothering to wear his regular attire for tonight's title match


Vince: It's time...

HBK looks up at Vince for a moment, then lowers his head again, which seems to infuriate Vince

Vince: I SAID IT'S TIME! GET UP!

HBK looks up again, glaring at Vince

Vince: Are you even listening to me? I OWN YOU!

HBK stands up, getting right in Vince's face

HBK: Hey! Let's get one thing straight.

Vince: Don't you dare raise your voice at me Michaels!

HBK: Or what Vince? What? What will you do? You're trying to discipline me like I'm your silver spoon fed son. I got news for you ...... Mac, I AIN'T YOUR GODDAMN SON! I'm the Showstopper, the Main Event, the Heart Break Kid, I'm Shawn Michaels! And I'll be damned if I am going to spend my last moments of freedom being barked orders at by an egotistical bastard like yourself. I threw everything I believed in away just to get this title shot by signing your damn "contract". So don't even push me Vince, or you'll be eating your meals through a straw for the next few weeks!

Vince: Are you forgetting something? You signed this...this contract...


Vince pulls the contract from his pocket

Vince: When you signed this, you gave me the rights to your sole. I OWN YOU! You're my property and I'll do whatever the hell I like to you, as long as it favours me. Remember this Shawn, you lose tonight, and you're time here is as good as done. You'll be finished. And then people can refer to you as the Has Been Kid!

HBK: If you know what's right, stay back here, out of my way, I wouldn't want to kick your teeth down your throat in back to back Pay Per Views...

HBK breathes heavily, seething with Vince, before walking out punching the wall, leaving Vince irate also as he slams the door shut as he leaves the room

JR: Emotions are running high folks! We are moments away from Triple H and Shawn Michaels doing battle in a Last Man Standing match with the WWE Championship on the line!

King: Tensions are running high too JR! HBK & Vince, while they've sorta been allies since July, have never been on the same page and have never agreed on anything at all. It's like there's only room for one of their massive ego's on this show!

JR: Folks, take a look at how this all came together...

Triple H vs Shawn Michaels


The Game comes for Shawn Michaels, and HBK is quick to move away from Triple H, who yells at Michaels to "Stop being a coward and fight like a man". Triple H goes to tie up with Michaels, but HBK avoids it, sending Triple H stumbling as HBK again moves away. Triple H likes annoyed with Michael's tactics and comes for him again, only for HBK again to evade The Game. Triple H this time runs at HBK, and Michaels hops out of the ring to heat from the fans, while Triple H is livid with HBK's approach to this match. Triple H exits the ring, while HBK rolls back into the ring. HHH pounds on the ring apron and goes back into the ring to get HBK, but Michaels again quickly gets out of the ring, playing games with Triple H who is not enjoying this cat and mouse showing by Michaels. Triple H is in the ring, looking ready to erupt as HBK stands on the outside, pretending like he's looking at a watch on his wrist and making a ticking motion with his index finger, implying he's waisting time on purpose to annoy The Game who is pacing back and forth in the ring, trying to keep his temper in check.

Michaels gets back onto the apron and pulls Mike Chioda in his way, so Triple H can't get a clean shot on him. HHH backs off and allows HBK to get into the ring and then changes his mind and comes at HBK, only for Michaels to anticipate it and move out of the way, sending Triple H out through the ropes to the floor! HBK smiles down at Triple H who slaps the mats on the outside. Triple H gets back up and glares at HBK who taps his temple with his index finger, as if to say "I know you too well". Triple H gets back onto the apron, cautiously watching HBK in case he tries to cheap shot him, but Michaels allows Triple H to get back into the ring, which HHH seems skeptical of. HBK spits his gum at Triple H, which hits him on the cheek and Hunter looks down at the gum as it lands on the canvas, and then snaps, darting at Michaels, catching Shawn by surprise and nailing him with a big right hand, as finally contact is made!

Triple H starts laying into Michaels with right hands. Triple H sends HBK to the ropes and meets him on the return with a big right hand to the jaw of HBK, taking him off his feet. HBK tries to crawl away from the wrath of Triple H, but doesn't get far as Hunter pulls him to his feet and levels him with another big right hand. HBK stumbles away and The Game pushes him into the corner where he hits another right hand, nailing Michaels right between the eyes, and then another. Triple H now whips Michaels across the ring at a wicked velocity, so much so HBK hits the opposite turnbuckle so hard he ends up crashing and burning over the top rope to the outside! Shawn Michaels rolls around on the outside holding his lower back while Triple H exits the ring, his eyes filled with pure hatred. HHH puts the boots to Michaels who is layed against the barricade. Triple H now turns around and picks up a cable and wraps it around the neck of HBK, choking the life outta him with it.

Triple H relinquishes the choke hold on HBK and drops the cable as Michaels coughs and splutters, gasping for air. Triple H waits for HBK to get up which the Showstopper does slowly and then The Game runs at HBK looking to clothesline him, but HBK lowers the shoulder and elevates Triple H over the barricade into the crowd! HBK takes this time of seperation to catch his breath before climbing over and joining HHH out in the crowd. Michaels hits a straight right hand to Triple H, and then nails a knife edge chop across the chest of Hunter. HBK looks to whip Triple H into the barricade, but Hunter counters it, sending HBK back first into the barricade. Triple H now follows this up with a clothesline, taking Michaels back into the ringside area. Triple H makes his way through the sea of fans who pat him on the back and steps back over the barricade, coming after HBK who is on all fours next to the ring.

HHH reaches down to grab HBK, but is blasted in the face with a trash can lid shot! The Game falls backwards as HBK gets back to his feet and swings the lid again connecting the forehead of Triple H. HBK now takes the lid in two hands and blasts Triple H over the head with it for a third time, this time knocking The Game off his feet. HBK tosses the trash can lid into the ring and continues to search under the ring, pulling out a couple of trash cans to a light pop from the fans. Michaels tosses both of them into the ring, then takes Triple H and rolls him back into the squared circle. A *You Suck* chant begins, directed towards Shawn Michaels and he responds to it with a "Suck It" which garners heat from the fans as HBK takes a stab at DX with the crotch chop. Michaels rolls into the ring and goes over to Triple H, who is in the corner. HBK opens up the chest area of Triple H and nails a sharp knife edge chop to the chest of Triple H, who responds with a right hand, only to have HBK hit back with another knife edge chop! Triple H sucks up the sting of the chops and comes back with another big right hand which has HBK reeling. The Game swings another right hand, this time HBK blocks it and nails another knife edge chop to Triple H, who drops to his knees with his chest lighting up.

Shawn Michaels now walks over to the other side of the ring and picks up one of the trash cans. HBK lifts it up above his head, looking to slam it down on Triple H's skull, but The Game manages to hit a right hand to the gut of HBK, winding him and causing Michaels to drop the trash can. Triple H picks it up and whacks HBK over the back with it, putting a dent in the can. HBK falls to his knees, and Triple H slams the trash can down over his head! Triple H drops the trash can and tells Mike Chioda to make the first count of the match

Michaels gets back to his feet

Triple H comes at HBK with the trash can in hand, but HBK scouts it and Drop Toe Holds Triple H down onto the trash can! The Game holds his forehead and rolls around after denting the can again, this time with his own cranium. Shawn Michaels makes his way over to HHH and pulls him up, lighting him up with another knife edge chop across the chest of Triple H. HBK tries to Suplex Triple H, but it is countered and TRIPLE H SUPEXES MICHAELS ONTO THE TRASH CAN! HBK holds his tailbone area and writhes around on the mat. Triple H meanwhile gets to his feet, temporarily rubbing his head to check if he's bleeding. He comes over to the downed HBK and brings him up, measuring him for a straight right hand, but HBK blocks it and comes back with a snap jab at HHH, then a knife edge chop and then a right hand, mixing up his offense which has Triple H wobbling and HBK picks up the trash can lid and whacks Triple H across the head with it, causing The Game to stumble back through the ropes to the outside.

HBK looks down at Triple H, who shifts to get up, only for HBK TO VAULT OVER THE ROPES AND LANDS ON HIM WITH A VAULTING BODY PRESS! A few fans in the front row begin to chant *HBK* which Michaels ignores as he mounts HHH and begins to pummel at the forehead of Triple H with his taped right fist, firing closed fists which are legal in this match. Michaels continues to do this, hoping to burst The Game open, but it is not to be. Shawn leaves Triple H down and makes his way around the ringside area, grabbing the ring bell off the timekeeper's table. Michaels grins at the steel device and then walks back around to The Game who is still trying to get up. HBK stalls and waits as Triple H gets up and turns around, RIGHT INTO A SHOT FROM THE RING BELL, RIGHT IN THE FACE! HBK leves Triple H with the bell and The Game goes down as HBK tosses the bell aside and almost instantly HHH is busted open from ear to ear!

The crowd "Aww's" when they see the visual appear over the titantron and Michaels tells Chioda not to bother with a ten count, "I'm not done yet" he says to the referee. HBK looks down ar the bloodied Game and can't help but crack a smile as he sees the WWE Champion down and bleeding.
Michaels grabs Triple H by his crimson masked face and walks him over to the steel steps, mashing Triple H's face into the steel face first. The Game looks like he's in another world as Michaels hits him with a right hand, keeping on the offensive here. Trips is propped up against the side of the ring, allowing HBK to nail a sharp knife edge chop across the chest of him, lighting him up again.
Michaels now pulls Triple H away, and The Game lifelessly flops to the floor as HBK lifts up the ring apron cover, and looks under the ring for something. Michaels searches for a few seconds before pulling out a LADDER! The crowd pops for the introduction of one of the baddest weapons in the business.

HBK isn't allowed anymore time however, as Triple H has managed to get back up and he hits HBK over the back, causing Michaels to drop the ladder. Triple H now takes Michaels by the left arm and with sheer force sends HBK crashing into the steel steps back first! Michaels hits the stairs so hard he dislodges the top part from the bottom part on impact. Shawn crumbles to his knees holding his back as Triple H hits a straight right hand to Michaels, right on the temple, taking Michaels down off his knees. The Game uses his arm and tries to wipe the blood off his head, but as he does, more seeps out in it's place. Triple H turns his attention back to Michaels, who is crawling away up the ramp. Triple H catches up with HBK and pulls the Showstopper to his feet, then goes to Piledrive Michaels on the ramp! HBK is able to block it however, and his trips The Game down and drops an elbow square to the groin! The crowd gives heat for the cheap move, while HBK again seems to care less and winces as he regains his footing, his back still hurting after the collision with the stairs earlier.

Chioda asks Michaels if he wants to count out Triple H and HBK shakes his head again, still wanting to inflict more punishment to Triple H. Michaels helps HHH up and walks him back to ringside, before sending him back into the ring. Michaels follows in and as Triple H tries to get back up, HBK rebounds off the ropes and takes out the leg of Triple H with a chopblock! Triple H goes back down and Michaels again stands there with a smile across his face, seemingly enjoying the pain his opponent is enduring here. HBK now grabs at his waist area, and we see he is undoing his leather belt! HBK takes the belt off his jeans and looks down at Triple H, who is on all fours now, trying to regain some energy, only for Michaels to whip the belt across the back of The Game to a sickening crack, which echoes around the arena. Triple H writhes around on the mat in pain, and HBK again whips the belt over the back of Triple H! Michaels now goes wild with the belt, repeatedly whipping Hunter over the back with it, multiple times as Triple H rolls on the canvas, trying to shield himself from the whips.

Michaels now drops down by Triple H and wraps the belt around the throat of Trips, strangling him with the leather belt. HHH kicks wildly, struggling for air as the belt is pulled tighter by Michaels, draining the air from the body of The Game. Chioda tries to reason with Shawn to let the hold go, and Michaels glares at him like a man possessed, only for Triple H to take advantage of the momentary lapse in concentration and break free from the strangle hold, elbowing Michaels right on the nose. HBK covers up his nose area and rolls away from Trips. Hunter is struggling to catch his breath while Michaels has begun to bleed slightly from the nose. HBK comes for Triple H with a right hand, but Trips is able to block it and level HBK with a right hand, sending Michaels to the mat. HBK gets back up and comes at Triple H, but is caught in the HH SPINEBUSTER! Trips plants Michaels with the move and both men are down.

Chioda checks both men and begins to use the ten count

Triple H gets back up
Michaels also gets up

Triple H grabs the leather belt that Michaels had earlier and whips HBK across the back with it to a nasty crack as HBK drops to his knees under the sharp pain. Trips now wraps the belt around his fist and holds HBK in position before pounding down on him with the belt to the forehead area of Michaels. Triple H hits about ten shots with the belt wrapped around his fist before stopping as HBK begins to bleed from the forehead, and is now busted open also. Triple H stomps on HBK's face now, working on busting the wound further. The Game now looks around and stops his eyes on the outside. Triple H grabs HBK and tosses him out to the outside, following out himself. Triple H now walks over to the commentators table and pulls the covering off it! He then pulls both monitors out of their sockets in the table also as JR & King move away, pleading with Hunter not to do this. HHH turns back to Michaels who is trying to get back to his feet and gives him a "Suck It" crotch chop to a loud pop from the fans. Triple H grabs Michaels and places him on the table, before climbing up and joining HBK ontop of the table.

The crowd come to their feet as Trips pulls HBK up and hooks Michaels up for the Pedigree! NO! HBK LOW BLOWS TRIPLE H! The crowd boos Michaels as he hits a low blow to The Game, saving his skin there. Michaels now takes one of the monitors and clobbers Triple H with a shot, straight to the temple, and Triple H goes out, dropping back first on the commentators table. Michaels rolls off the table now and leans against the apron, taking a few moments to catch his breath. HBK now slowly makes his way around the ring, stopping back at the ladder! The crowd pops as Michaels picks up the ladder and walks it back around to the commentators table. Triple H is trying to get off the table, but Michaels throws the ladder into the face of Trips, again taking him out of it, and HHH is once again sprawled out over the commentators table. Michaels now stands the ladder up and looks up at it, his body shaking as he stares at the ladder. HBK now steps onto the first rung, climbing up the ladder! HBK reaches near the top and and turns himself around, so he is facing Trips who is still out across the commentators table. The crowd are on their feet, and Michaels take one look up at the roof, as if looking to God, before LEAPING OFF THE LADDER WITH AN ELBOW DROP, DRIVING TRIPLE H THROUGH THE COMMENTATORS TABLE! The crowd goes nuts with a giant *Holy Shit* chant as both men are down and out buried unde the rubble of the table. Mike Chioda checks on both men, and neither is moving at all. Chioda begins to use the ten count and still neither man has shown any signs of movement

A loud *You Suck* chant begins as Vince goes over to HBK and helps him to his feet. HBK can barely stand and almost falls back down again, only for Vince to again help him up. Vince now waves to the backstage area as referee Jack Doan jogs down the ramp, seemingly to take over from Chioda who is out of it at the moment. Vince barks at Doan to count out Trips while Vince holds HBk up, who is still partially unconscious. Doan has no choice but to begin the count

MICHAELS LEVELS VINCE WITH SWEET CHIN MUSIC!

HBK LEVELS JACK DOAN WITH SWEET CHIN MUSIC TOO!

The count stops as HBK again plays to his own tune and again hits Vince, despite being contracted to Vince! Michaels now tries to revive Mike Chioda, who looks a little dazed after being hit from behind by Vince. HBK manages to get Chioda moving again and then turns back to Triple H, who is moving! The crowd erupts as Trips is finally moving again. Michaels looks shocked that Hunter is able to come to, thinking he had put him out of the match for good. HBK goes over to the timekeeper's area and this time grabs a steel chair, throwing it into the ring.
Michaels pulls a near lifeless Triple H up and rolls him back into the ring. Shawn Michaels then rolls Mike Chioda back into the ring, with the referee seemingly back into things and getting up to officiate the rest of this match.
HBK picks up the steel chair and walks over to Triple H, lifting it into the air to crack it down on The Game, but Triple H takes a page out of HBK's book and LOW BLOWS MICHAELS! The crowd pops as HBK drops the steel chair and holds his crutch, doubling over in pain.

Triple H crawls to the steel chair and takes it in his hands, before getting back to his feet, staggering around for a moment, still not all together. Triple H shakes the cobwebs loose, then swings the chair and hits HBK over the head with the steel chair! HBK goes down and Trips drops the chair, falling back and resting in the corner as Mike Chioda begins to count Michaels out

Michaels is somehow able to pull himself up!

Triple H comes out of the corner to HBK and goes to hit a right hand to him, but Michaels blocks it and nails a knife edge chop to HHH. HBK then hits another, again lighting up the chest of Trips. Triple H tries to respond with a right hand, but Michaels whips him to the ropes. HBK lowers his head, but does so too early and Triple H meets him on the rebound with the Facebuster Knee Smash! Triple H then goes to take HBK down with a clothesline, but HBK ducks under it and runs off the ropes, coming back with a Flying Forearm Smash! Both men are down again, and Chioda begins another count

Triple H gets up and turns into SWEET CHIN MUSIC FROM HBK!
The crowd is silenced as The Game hits the deck after being hit with the SCM, and HBK looks set to win the match. Michaels yells at Chioda to use the ten count

TRIPLE H GETS BACK UP!

The crowd goes wild and HBK can't believe it as he grabs the steel chair and runs at Triple H swinging it at The Game's head, but Trips ducks it, then HBK turns into a kick to the midsection, and TRIPLE H PLANTS MICHAELS WITH THE PEDIGREE! The crowd erupts as Triple H plants HBK right in the middle of the ring with the Pedigree. Chioda once again begins the count out on Michaels

HBK MANAGES TO GET UP!

Triple H this time is the one who can't believe it. He wipes the blood and perspiration off his forehead and comes for Michaels, hitting him with a right hand which has Michaels reeling. HBK hits back with a right of his own, which sends Trips wobbly, as both men are struggling to find anything left in the tank here. Triple H strikes back with another right hand, and Michaels responds with one of his own, even if it's a little weaker. Triple H sends Michaels to the ropes and meets him with another HH Spinebuster! Trips now exits the ring and looks under the ring, pulling out the SLEDGEHAMMER! The crowd goes wild as Triple H stares at his trademark weapon with a far away look in his eyes. Triple H slides back into the ring armed with his sledgehammer and stabs it into the gut of Shawn Michaels! HBK doubles over, dropping to the mat holding his sternum and writhing around in pain.

Triple H now looks to finish off Shawn with a blow to the head, but A HAND GRABS THE HAMMER! IT'S VINCE MCMAHON! The crowd boos as Vince tries to stop Triple H from winning the match, only for Trips to use this to his advantage and pull the hammer away from Vince, and HITS HIM ON THE HEAD WITH IT! Vince goes out like a light after being hit by the sledgehammer. Triple H now grabs Vince and throws him out of the ring. The Game looks down at Michaels who is still pretty much out of it, before exiting the ring, going after McMahon! Triple H pulls the nearly lifeless Vince to his feet and drags Vince over to the dislodged steel steps from earlier. HHH brings VInce onto the bottom part, AND PEDIGREES VINCE ONTO THE STEEL STEPS! The crowd is in awe but soon another *Holy Shit* chant can be heard as Vince is lifelessly sprawled over the bottom part of the steps. Triple H gets back up and looks down at Vince, making sure he's not moving, before sliding back into the ring.

Trips is however attacked by Shawn Michaels with a trash can shot to the back as he gets back into the ring. HBK again lifts the trash can into the air, before slamming it down over the back of The Game. Michaels now drops the trash can and walks over to the corner, looking out into the crowd who give him loud heat as Michaels begins to "Tune Up The Band"! Michaels stomps the canvas, waiting for Trips to get up, and finally Triple H is able to muster the strength to get up, turning right into SCM! NO! Trips ducks it! Michaels turns back into a kick to the midsection! PEDIGREE! NO! HBK counters, tripping Hunter down. Michaels now catapults Triple H up into the turnbuckle, face first. Triple H hits it and stumbles out into SCM! NO! TRIPLE H CATCHES IT! Michaels is shocked, and Triple H kicks Michaels low in the gut, hooks the arms, then pulls him over and PEDIGREES MICHAELS ON THE STEEL CHAIR! The crowd goes wild as Trips drills Michaels with a second Pedigree, this time onto the steel chair. Chioda begins his count with both men down
