6th Match: Tables Match:
Dudley Boyz vs. Test & Steiner
Overview: The Dudleyz enter first and wait for Test & Steiner, but as the music plays, Test & BPP come through the crowd and attack the Dudleyz from behind beginning the match. Test goes at it with D’ Von, and Steiner goes at it with Bubba. Test and Steiner kick Bubba out of the ring and assault D’ Von. They hit a double suplex on him and then Steiner pushes Test hard, and they mimic the Dudleys.
Steiner: “GET THE TABLES!!!”
This gets a very unpleasant reaction from the crowd, as they boo the duo. Test goes to the outside and grabs a table, but he is stopped on the way back by Bubba who tackles Test to the ground. This distracts Steiner who looks to the outside, giving D’ Von the chance to attack him. He hit’s a dropkick on BPP and then pounds him in the corner. Bubba gets back in and they hit the Dudley Device on Steiner. Bubba then sees Test trying to re enter and hit’s a Bubba bomb on him. They then hit the WASSSSUPPP!!!!! on Test, and he squirms to the outside again. Then the Dudley’s do their trademark saying when Bubba shoves his brother,
Bubba: “D’ VON!!!”
D’ Von: “WHAT!!!”
Bubba: “GET THE TABLES!!!!!”
This gets a huge response from the crowd as they chant, “We want tables!!”. They get a table and carry it into the ring. They then go for the 3D on BPP, but Test pulls the leg of Bubba as he bounces off the rope, and Steiner counters on D’ Von into a reverse DDT. He then hit’s a Belly to Belly. And a T-Bone on Bubba as he gets back in. He then attempts to hits another T-Bone to D’ Von through the table, but as he hit’s the move, Bubba frantically moves the table out of the way.
Test then re enters and goes for a Boot on Bubba, but misses. Bubba hits his combination of punches on Test, and knocks down Steiner in between as he tries to intervene. Bubba then picks up Steiner, and goes for the Bubba bomb through the table, but this time, Test makes the save with the Boot to Bubba.
Test and Steiner then go for a flapjack on D’ Von through the table, but Bubba somehow, manages to stop them. The four men then go punch for punch, and Steiner brawls with D’ Von to the outside, leaving Bubba and Test in the ring. Bubba get the better of the action, but Test comes back with some shots of his own. He ducks a clothesline and hit’s the Pump handle slam, but not through a table.
He goes to the outside where he helps BPP take down his brother. They get back in the ring and go for a double suplex through the table, but Bubba fights out, and hit’s a double clothesline. He tries to take on both, but soon they overpower him.
Suddenly, D’ Von runs into the ring with a steel chair and lays out Test. He goes for Steiner, but he ducks, and hit’s the referee instead.
He then hits Steiner with the chair and he and Bubba then set up Steiner for the 3D through the table. They hit the move, but there is no referee to call for the bell. They look to the outside, and Bubba goes outside and begins to argue with the time keeper. Meanwhile, Test grabs the chair, and hits D’ Von from behind. Bubba runs in and hammers away on Test, but he hits Bubba with a low blow. He then hit’s the Test Drive, and pulls Steiner out of the broken table and replaces him with Bubba.
They run up the ramp as the referee comes to his senses. He calls for the bell, and Test and Steiner are declared the winners.
They leave the arena all smiles as D’ Von recovers and helps Bubba to his feet. They are both irate over the decision as the camera cuts away.
We then see backstage, Eddie Guerrero talking to team mate John Cena. Big Show then enters and tell them as long as he is in the ring, they needn’t worry. Lesnar then enters. He laughs at Big Show’s claim, and says that as long as HE stays in the ring, Team Smackdown has no problems. The four then get in an argument. Angle then steps in and tells all of them to settle down. He reminds them that the MVP gets a title shot, providing they work as a unit. He tells them to remember that later.
We then see Ric Flair making his way backstage for the Submission match up next. J.R reminds us that RAW now trails Smackdown 4-2 overall, and this match is vital.
