Re: WWE Unleash the Fury
Friday Night Smackdown
January 20, 2006
*A Video Package of last week's main event takes place with Undertaker beating Christian and Batista beating down Christian on the outside before the main event for this week is announced of Batista vs Christian*
*Rise Up hits and the normal Smackdown video package plays before we fade out to ringside with Michael Cole and Tazz*
Michael Cole: Welcome to Friday Night Smackdown and there is a huge night in store for us with a huge main event!
Tazz: Cole, I've been waiting all week for this huge matchup as Christian will be meeting the World-Heavyweight Champion, Batista
Michael Cole: That match will be a tuneup for the Royal Rumble as the champion Batista described it last week
Tazz: Plus also tonight, we've got a Hardcore match between JBL and the Boogeyman plus Booker T vs Chris Benoit in a rematch from last week!
Paul London vs Joey Mercury
Match Finish: London adds the highflying to this match while Mercury does the grounding of London which results in a great match for Smackdown to begin with. Ending takes place whenever Nitro and Melina have the ref distracted which gives time for Mercury to take down London with a lowblow. Mercury then goes for a DDT but Kendrick takes down Mercury with a crossbody off the ropes while London starts to recover. Nitro slides in but the ref prevents him from coming in while Kendrick nails the Sliced Bread #2 and Kendrick drags London's arm over Mercury for the pin, One....Two....Three
Winner: Paul London
*Kendrick then grabs London and they make their way up the ramp to cheers from the crowd motioning to MNM that they will be the new WWE Tag Team Champions. Nitro and Melina then help Mercury up and they stare down London and Kendrick before we fade to commercial*
*We cut backstage to where JBL is standing with Jillian*
JBL: Jillian, I want you to stay backstage tonight. I've got to face that creep in The Boogeyman and I don't want you getting hurt
Jillian Hall: Come on JBL! I'm your manager, I'm your fixer. I'm supposed to be out there to help you win at all times
JBL: Jillian listen, this is for your safety. Normally, I would let you come down but this is a Hardcore match against that freak of nature and there is no telling what he will do
Jillian Hall: Well.....ok! I guess it would be better if I did stay back here tonight but whenever you win, I'm coming down there!
*Jillian then walks off and we see JBL stand there, then opens a door and screams, we then cut over to see The Boogeyman eating worms*
The Boogeyman: Tick.....Tock.....Tick......Tock! JBL, your time has come! I'm the Boogeyman, and I'm coming to getcha!!!
*JBL jumps back and Boogeyman continues to eat his worms before we cut out and head to Michael Cole and Tazz at ringside*
Michael Cole: The Boogeyman is indeed a rather strange man and maybe he should go back to wherever he came from
Tazz: I don't think he even knows where he came from! But JBL faces a tough task tonight against the Boogeyman
Michael Cole: But the advantage goes to JBL now because it is in his rules, Hardcore Match and that's his match
Tazz: Well JBL certainly does have an advantage with that but will it help him get a win over the Boogeyman or not?
Juventud (c) vs Jamie Noble
Match Finish: Great Cruiserweight match between these two men with Jamie Noble making his return to the Smackdown roster. Ending takes place whenever Juventud has Noble down after an enziguri to which Juventud heads up to the top rope. Juventud then sets himself up and then jumps going for the 450 Splash but Noble moves and Juventud splashes down connecting with a hard shot to the mat and Noble starts to get back to his feet. Noble gets up with the help of the ropes and then picks up Juventud and goes for the Tiger Bomb and connects and rolls Juventud over for the cover, One.....Two....Three and we have a new Cruiserweight Champion!
Winner and NEW WWE Cruiserweight Champion: Jamie Noble
*Jamie Noble then slides to the outside of the ring and grabs his Cruiserweight Championship before he kisses it and makes his way to the back. Noble then taunts the crowd and then looks down the ramp at Juventud which Juventud is laying in the ring and Noble then slaps his Cruiserweight Championship before heading to the back*
*We cut backstage to where we see Theodore Long in his office whenever we hear a bang on the door*
Theodore Long: Come in!!!
*We then cut over to where we see Mark Henry open the door making his return*
Theodore Long: Ah, if it isn't my good old friend, Mark Henry! How have things been treating you recently playa?
*We then see Mark Henry serious buisness not laughing nor smiling*
Mark Henry: Teddy, I came here for one reason and one reason only! I want a spot in the Royal Rumble match
Theodore Long: Well playa, I got to say something to you buddy and that is I am not going to be bossed around by you because I am your former manager
*Henry then grabs Long and starts to choke him and Long is coughing hardly*
Mark Henry: You listen up Teddy Long. I'm not here to play around, I'm not hear to be the laughingstock of the WWE, I'm here to make an impact! I'm here to come and win the World-Heavyweight Championship and I will not back down because you are my former manager. Teddy, as far as I see you know, you are just another person in my way!
*Long starts to scream for security while Henry still has Long choked out*
Theodore Long: LET ME GO!!!! SECURITY!!!!!!!
*Security then hurries in the room and grabs Mark Henry while Henry gets escorted out and Henry gets handcuffed while he starts to smile*
Mark Henry: That's ok Teddy. You didn't want to put me into the Royal Rumble, well I'm going to enter myself into the Royal Rumble and you will not do anything about it now will you Teddy because if you do, I'll hunt you down and this time, it won't be a choke, it will be worse!
*Security then escorts Henry out while we can hear Henry laugh while he walks down the hallway and Long is holding his throat in pain*
Michael Cole: Mark Henry has made his return to the WWE after being out for nearly two years with neck injuries
Tazz: He sure did make a huge impact coming back and he didn't ask about his Royal Rumble spot after all, he demanded it!
Michael Cole: And if you are just tuning in, we have crowned a new champion here tonight in Jamie Noble for the Cruiserweight title
Tazz: Noble made his return and he shocked the world whenever he ended up pinning Juventud taking the title with him
*Interview w/ Ken Kennedy*
Josh Matthews: And right now, I am standing by with....
*Kennedy snatches the mic out of Matthews's hand*
Ken Kennedy: Don't let me ever! Ever, here you start an interview like that because it is not the right way to do it, now let's try it again
*Kennedy hands the mic to Matthews and Matthews starts up again*
Josh Matthews: Right now, I am stand......
*Kennedy quickly snatches the mic out of Matthews's hand once more*
Ken Kennedy: You did it again, you repeated the same thing you did and you just did it in a different fashion, this time around make it better!
*Kennedy then hands the microphone to Matthews's and Matthews's starts up once more*
Josh Matthews: We.......
*Kennedy grabs the microphone and nails Matthews across the head with it*'
Ken Kennedy: Kid, you are a disgrace to the mic and you let down everybody in the world that has ever used a mic. But tonight, I head out to that ring and I will take on any comers, any man who wants to face me in that ring tonight for a Royal Rumble spot and anybody can come out there, challenge me and still lose and they will remember my name!
Ken Kennedy: Misterrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.................Kenn.......
*We then see the mic snatched out of Kennedy's hand and we cut over to see Funaki who speaks with broken english*
Funaki: This is Funaki! Number 1 Smackdown Announcer!
*Kennedy then gets pissed off and grabs the mic and spits in the face of Funaki before talking and then slaps Funaki and tells Funaki to meet him in the ring*
*Ken Kennedy's music hits and he comes out to boos from the crowd, then motions for his mic to come down*
Ken Kennedy: The following contest is scheduled for one fall with a twenty minute time limit. I weigh in tonight in 245 pounds, yep gained a pound! I hail from Green Bay, Wisconsin!!! Misterrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.......Kennedddddddddyyyyyyy!!!!
*Kennedy then scales the top ropes before grabbing the mic again*
Ken Kennedy: KENNEDY!!!!
Royal Rumble Qualifying Match
Ken Kennedy vs Funaki
Match Finish: Just a squash match to put over Ken Kennedy and give him some "momentum" before heading into the Royal Rumble. Ending takes place whenever Funaki goes for Spinning DDT off the ropes but Kennedy catches Funaki and then slams him onto the turnbuckle in the corner and then Kennedy places Funaki on the ropes. Kennedy then grabs Funaki and then climbs to the middle rope himself before coming off connecting with his finishing move, the Green Bay Plunge to which the crowd looks in awe and Kennedy rolls Funaki over, One...Two....Three
Winner and Advancing to Royal Rumble: Ken Kennedy
*Kennedy then looks up and grabs his mic while it comes down*
Ken Kennedy: Here is your winner, Misterrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...........Kenneddddddddddddddddyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!
*Kennedy then climbs the ropes and then points to the crowd*
Ken Kennedy: KENNEDY!!!!
*We cut to ringside where Michael Cole and Tazz are*
Michael Cole: Mr. Kennedy is certainly a cocky man but he does get the job done tonight and gets the win in huge fashion
Tazz: Not only that Cole but he has qualified for the Royal Rumble match. What would the Royal Rumble be without Mr. Kennedy?
Michael Cole: I'n not sure Tazz. Anyways still to come tonight, we've got JBL vs Boogeyman in a Hardcore Match
Tazz: Plus our main event that you will not want to miss, Christian meets the World-Heavyweight Champion Batista one on one!
*We cut out to where we see Rey Mysterio talking with Theodore Long*
Rey Mysterio: Hey Teddy, just wanted to check up on something about when Booker T beat me down last week in the hallway
Theodore Long: Ok playa! Sounds good to me and just tell me what you want to see tonight and I can grant it like that
Rey Mysterio: Well I was kinda thinking about doing something about this match that Booker T is taking on Chris Benoit in
Theodore Long: And what would that be playa? Just shoot away and tell me what you want to see happen and I can make it happen
Rey Mysterio: Well I was thinking ab.....
*We hear a loud voice interrupt Mysterio and we see Booker T and Sharmell walk in*
Booker T: How's it going tonight Teddy? Just came to drop by and check on the United States Champion, Rey Mysterio
*Crowd Boos and Mysterio goes face to face with Booker T*
Booker T: Whoa man calm down! It was just a joke but seriously I wanted to make sure I didn't hurt you too much and I didn't think midgets like you could take that much pain
*Booker and Sharmell share a laugh while Long interrupts&
Theodore Long: Well Booker, you look like you are ready for action right now and you do have a match against Chris Benoit tonight
Booker T: Yeah but I'm not ready right now, Sharmell and me are about to go eat something real quick before the match
Theodore Long: Nice try Booker but since you want the United States Championship so much, tonight it will be Booker T vs Chris Benoit in a #1 Contender's match
Booker T: I like the way you think Teddy! Well gotta to go get ready for that match and I'll see you out there champ!
#1 Contender's Match
Booker T vs Chris Benoit
Match Finish: These two men put on a match of the night contender and put everything on the line in a rematch from last week but with more on the line as there is a #1 Contender's spot for the United States Championship in the air. Ending comes whenever Sharmell has the ref distracted long enough for Booker T to nail a lowblow and get a small break before Booker comes off the ropes and nails the Scissors Kick and calls the ref over, One....Two....Thre.... the United States Champion grabbed the foot of Benoit and placed it on the ropes and Booker T doesn't know what to think. Booker slides to the outside and starts to chase Mysterio around the ring before Mysterio slides into the ring and Benoit catches Booker and locks on the Crippler Crossface, Booker is trying not to have to give up but Booker loses all hope and ends up tapping out giving the win to Chris Benoit
Winner and #1 Contender: Chris Benoit
*Mysterio then helps Benoit up and raises his hand before Mysterio grabs his United States Championship and then starts to walk off but Benoit pulls Mysterio back and tells Mysterio that next week on Smackdown, he's coming for the title!*
Michael Cole: What a hard fought match but in the end, Chris Benoit walks away the winner and the new number one contender
Tazz: And what a match set up for next week as Rey Mysterio defends his United States Championship against Chris Benoit!
Michael Cole: That's a dream match right there in many eyes of many fans and perhaps we could see a new champ crowned
Tazz: I am expecting lots from those two men next week as it will be a match to remember with the United States title on the line!
*Burn in My Light hits and Randy Orton comes out to loud boos taunting the crowd to get more boos*
Randy Orton: Last week here on Smackdown, I was told I had to apologize to our GM Theodore Long for making an impact as he put it. He challenged me to do so and when I am challenged, I am not going to back down from it
Randy Orton: And that's exactly what Theodore Long got as he received a RKO two weeks ago in this very ring as I made an impact! It was an impact heard around the world whenever I nailed the RKO onto the Smackdown General Manager
*Crowd Boos even more*
Randy Orton: People were talking about it the next day at work, the whole week they were buzzing and now all of you people are still talking about it while I am too! You see, impacts cannot be forgotten and they never will be forgotten!
*Orton Sucks Chants start up*
Randy Orton: You might say I suck but I know I don't because I am a former Intercontinental Champion and I am the youngest World-Heavyweight Champion to date in the WWE at a sweet, tender age of 24 years old!
Randy Orton: Tell me! Tell me what you people were doing when all of you were 24 years old and well now I think about it, that was a long damn time ago! But let me go on out here and ask some of you people what you were doing when you were 24 years old
*Orton then slides out of the ring*
Randy Orton: Ok you sir, would you mind to tell me what you were doing when you were 24 years old or are you too old to remember?
*Orton walks up to a 50 year old looking man*
Man: Well I was on Spring Break!
*Orton starts to laugh and then rares back and slaps the taste out of the man's mouth*
Randy Orton: That's a very funny joke sir but what about you, would you mind telling me what you are doing right now since you look 24?
*Orton then walks up to a young man*
Man: Well right now, I am at a local college and am studying to become an M......
*Orton then spits in the face of the college guy and Orton heads back up the ring to huge boos now*
Randy Orton: All of you people might think those two clowns are funny but there is nothing funny about wasting your life in Florida for spring break or going to college. Because I'm Randy Orton and I am a third generation superstar
Randy Orton: I don't need college because I wouldn't understand any of that shit anyways and I certainly don't need spring break because all of the women want me anyways already! So you all might wonder what I am going to be doing at the Royal Rumble?
*Orton Sucks Chants start up once more*
Randy Orton: Well it's plain and simple because unlike any of these losers here in Atlanta, Georgia, I am going to go to the Royal Rumble, become the youngest Royal Rumble winner ever in the entire history of the event, then head onto WrestleMania 22 and become a two time World-Heavyweight Champion!
Randy Orton: And at the tender age of 25, I would have fulfilled my destiny!
*Burn in My Light hits and Orton leaves to the loudest amount of boos from the whole night so far and Orton backs up the ramp laughing at the fans then heads to the back while we fade out to commercial*
JBL vs The Boogeyman
Match Finish: Pretty decent Hardcore match and this is used to put off this minor feud that JBL and Boogeyman have had over the past couple of weeks. Ending comes whenever Boogeyman grabs the worms and goes to stick them in the throat of JBL but JBL pushes Boogeyman off and Boogeyman comes back into a huge chair shot from JBL. JBL then waits while Boogeyman gets back to his feet and then charges across the ring connecting with the Clothesline from Hell and then rolls Boogeyman over before he is able to pin him, One....Two....Three
*We cut over to ringside where Michael Cole and Tazz are at*
Michael Cole: JBL overcame the odds tonight and he has ended up beating The Boogeyman finally in a clean win
Tazz: The Boogeyman has been haunting JBL for weeks and JBL has ended it this week with a huge win to finish this off
Michael Cole: JBL told Jillian earlier tonight to not come to ringside and Jillian listened which was the best thing to do
Tazz: I'm not so sure how Jillian felt about that though. She didn't seem so happy about being told to stay backstage
*We cut backstage to where we see Matt Hardy standing in his lockerroom*
Matt Hardy: You see, I just got done talking with the General Manager Theodore Long and he granted me a Royal Rumble spot in the Royal Rumble match which is only nine days away! And I just wanted to warn everybody in that match that Matt Hardy is back for good! This is no former Matt Hardy where I just play around and let you beat me down, this is another side of Matt Hardy and it is about to be unleashed upon you all starting at the Royal Rumble
Matt Hardy: I used to stand back in line, wait for my time to come and wait for my chance to earn a World-Heavyweight Championship shot but that day has not came yet. I have yet to even get a shot to earn a chance for the title and that is going to end soon because at the Royal Rumble, I will walk in there and destroy all twenty nine of those other men and I will move onto WrestleMania 22
Matt Hardy: I will finally have earned the shot for the World-Heavyweight Championship and then there will be a new champion and his name will be Matt Hardy! So get ready because at the Royal Rumble, you better buckle up your seatbelts because you are going to be in for a long ride whenever Matt Hardy steps into that ring
Batista vs Christian
Match Finish: Decent main event between these two men and they make it a pretty good match for the main event of Smackdown. Ending takes place whenever Christian slides to the outside of the ring and grabs the World-Heavyweight Championship belt and then goes to slide it into the ring and Batista grabs it ready to swing but the lights go off! The lights then come back on and we see Undertaker standing in the middle of the ring to which Batista and Christian then turn around and see Undertaker but it's too late and Undertaker chokeslams Christian and then picks up Batista and nails the Tombstone to which Undertaker gets back up and then does his taunt to which we fade out
Winner: No Contest
