Re: Renegade™ & PARANoIR Present: WWE 2006
The following production has been paid for and approved by the IC 2.0
Georgetown University; Washington DC
JR: Hello and welcome folks to the sold out Verizon Center here in the nation's capital, Washington DC! As always I am joined by Jerry "The King" Lawler here at ringside, and King, it's gonna be a big night, because Edge knows who he'll be up against at Armageddon, and it's none other than The Brahma Bull, The Rock!
King: That's right JR, The Rock, despite the best efforts of John Cena to take him out of the Battle Royal and the incredible performance of Brock Lesnar, was able to come up with a huge victory last week and now he's got a chance to become an eight time WWE Champion, an unheard of achievement!
JR: And we've got some big matches tonight folks as Rhyno defends his Hardcore Championship against Lance Cade, Kane takes on "The Masterpiece" Chris Masters and in diva action Trish Stratus, Mickie James & Gail Kim will take on Beth Phoenix, Victoria & Melina. Beth Phoenix seems locked on becoming Women's Champion, and after the message she sent to Trish and Mickie last week, is her momentum going to continue tonight?
The duo are cut off by *METALINGUS* as the WWE Champion Edge makes his way out to some heavy heat from the fans. With his wife Lita by his side, the Rated R Superstar heads to the ring with a mic in hand. Edge goes to speak but the crowd's boo's get louder and drown out his attempts to say something. Edge tries to wait for the heat to stop but he soon realizes it won't and sprays back to the fans
Edge: You people, show your WWE Champion the God damn respect he deserves!
Massive heat for Edge, while Lita takes the mic from her husband
Lita: How dare you all sit on your fat asses and disrespect th-
Lita is cut off by a LOUD "Slut" chant, which visibly upsets her, and she gives Edge the mic back, who sprays back at the fans
Edge: My wife is no slut! All the men here act the tough guy, but when they look at that bush pig they're with, all they can really think of is wishing they could be with a woman as sexy as Lita. And all you women, you wish that you could look as good as Lita does, and not like a smacked horse!
Insane heat for that out burst from Edge followed up by a booming "Asshole" chant
Edge: I could spend all day pointing out the flaws of all you morons, but not a single one of you are worth that level of attention, especially from The Rated R Superstar!
Edge: But believe it or not, there is ONE person in this building tonight, that will be getting acknowledged by me, and that person is the man who won the chance to face me at Armageddon for the WWE Title, and that is The Rock!
MEGA pop for the mention of The Rock
Edge: Rock, congratulations, you've won a chance at my title. But that's all it is. A chance. Nothing more. Just because you beat a bunch of guys who can't hold a candle to me, which is a fact seeing as I'm the WWE Champion and none of them are, counts for nothing when you step into the ring with me.
Edge pauses as the crowd boos him again
Edge: Make no mistake about it Rock, I always had your number at Survivor Series. ALWAYS!
"Bullshit" chant begins
Edge: This is the Rated R Era you're in now Rock. This isn't the days when you were always at the top, hell, until Survivor Series, you hadn't been near the top in what, 4 years?
A smirk from Edge there
Edge: Since you left the scene all those years ago Rock, to make your movies and all that crap, I've climbed the ladder to super stardom. I'm now on top of RAW, on top of the WWE, and on top of the world. You may have been a great champion in your day Rock, but I intend on making sure I go down as the best, the VERY best.
Edge: At Armageddon Rock, you'll be the first in a long line of those who have tried to take what is rightfully mine from me, and fail to do so. You'll be the first stepping stone to the pinnacle of my reign. You'll be the second victim of the OFFICIAL Rated R Era, but don't let it dis-hearten you because you certainately won't be the last...
*IF YA SMELL*
The crowd comes alive as The Rock makes his way out to the ring, getting a booming ovation from the fans. Rock has a mic in hand, and he soaks up the loud "Rocky" chants as his music dies out, before tilting backwards
Rock: FINALLY...THE ROCK HAS COME BACK...TO WASHINGTON DEE CEE!
Crowd goes nuts
Edge: WHY DO YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO COME OUT AND INTERRUPT ME ROCK?!
Rock takes a step back
Rock: Did you just interrupt The Rock?
Edge refuses to answer
Rock: Just who in the blue hell do you think you are?
Edge's eyes widen in fury that Rock asked that question
Edge: I'm the God damn WWE Ch-
Rock: IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO YOU ARE!
Crowd erupts as Rock owns Edge, who isn't happy about it
Edge: How original Rock. All you do is come out here, week in, week out and talk your catchphrases, your one liners, your immature insults, getting a raise out of whoever you want. Well I'm sick of it all. I'm sick of having to listen to you run your mouth like you're some sort of comic God. You're nothing but an overpaid joke!
Ouch, Rock pretends he's hurt
Rock: You talk about The Rock running his mouth? You talk about The Rock being a joke? Well Mr. Rated R Superstar, let The Rock remind you, back at Unforgiven, The Rock whipped your monkey ass all over!
Rock: Not to mention, Trish Stratus, to put it bluntly, smacked your bitch up!
OHNOZ!~ Crowd goes crazy for that one while Lita is beside herself
Rock: Go back even further, to Summerslam, the War Games match, The Rock whipped your candy ass again! All over that cage! And The Rock was going to make it three in a row at Survivor Series until you got a helping hand from John Cena, make no mistake about that you jabroni!
Rock: So from The Rock's perspective, the only joke around here, is you Edge and the dirty, bottom feeding, 2 dollar hooker by your side!
Another huge pop for that as Edge fumes at Rock
Edge: I da-
Rock: SHUT YOUR MOUTH JABRONI!
Huge pop and Edge is furious
Edge: DON'T TELL ME TO SH-
ROCK SLAPS THE MIC OUT OF EDGE'S HAND! The crowd erupts for that as Edge runs his fingers through his hair and grits his teeth, Rock completely pissing him off
Rock: And as for this crap about The Rock having nothing more than just a chance at Armageddon, claiming that The Rock only beat a bunch of guys who can't hold a candle to you, The Rock has to ask, ARE YOU ON CRACK?
Rock: The Rock beat all the jabroni's in his way last week, and next weekend at Armageddon, The Rock's gonna beat the biggest jabroni of them all, you!
Pop as Rock points to Edge
*HERE COMES THE PAIN*
The crowd is a little surprised to see Lesnar come out here, as is Rock and Edge in the ring. Lesnar stops on the stage, mic in hand
Rock: If it isn't the Vanilla Gorilla, Brock Lesnar!
Pop for the insult as Lesnar smirks at Rock's joke
Lesnar: Crack all the jokes you want Rock, but we all know that it should be ME facing Edge at Armageddon, not you! You fluked it last week Rock, plain and simple. I dominated that match, I eliminated half of the damn ring by myself!
Lesnar: I eliminated Rob Van Dam, Sting, Kane, Monty Brown, Rhyno, Bubba Dudley, Maven & Goldust, all by myself!
Lesnar: Yet, because of sheer luck on your part Rock, I won't be getting what I truly deserve, and that's facing Edge for the WWE Championship at Armageddon!
Rock: That's a real touching story Brock. Too bad The Rock doesn't give a monkeys nut sack!
Rock: So tell your story walking...
Rock pauses as Lesnar goes to reply to that, but Rock beats him to it
Rock: Whoa, whoa, whoa! Let The Rock finish. Better yet Brock Lesnar, why don't you take your story, get it published in hardback form, shine that book up nice and bright, turn it sideways, AND STICK IT STRAIGHT UP YOUR CANDY ASS!
Booming pop as Lesnar frowns at Rock
Lesnar: I've got a better idea Rock, how about me and you tonight, and you put your title shot on the line!
Lesnar: So then not only can I take my rightful chance to wrestle for the title, but I can enjoy shutting you and that big mouth of yours up for good...
*MY TIME IS NOW*
John Cena makes his way out to some loud heat from the fans here. Cena looks at Lesnar, then at Rock, then at Edge who is furious with how his air time is being taken away tonight. Cena too has a mic in hand
Cena: Yo, yo, yo! Make some noise Washington DC!
Major heat for Cena and a loud "You Suck" chant begins, which Cena shrugs off
Cena: Look at what we've got here. Y'all gettin' a little, edgy, fellas?
Cena looks all smug
Cena: First off Brock Lesnar, you almost won a battle royal. Big deal, the word there, is almost. That doesn't mean jack you big ape, so get in line.
Lesnar glares at Cena, who then turns to The Rock
Cena: Oh hey Rock, hows the ribs, still a little sore?
Cena laughs as Rock mocks Cena
Rock: (In a mocking voice) Oh ahahahah, John you're so funny (/mocking). The Rock's ribs could be better, however John, The Rock wants to know, hows your lips?
Pop from the crowd
Cena: Why do you care Rock, wanna pucker up?
Rock: No The Rock does not, but one more stupid question like that, and The Rock'll slap those lips right off your face!
Cena: Don't kid yourself Rock, you can't hang with me, I've been all over you lately. You're nothing but a pretender with a big mouth.
Rock: Oh yeah John, you've been all over The Rock, big man. I mean, you must've felt so high on yourself, getting your pale ass handed to you at Survivor Series by a Rock Bottom.
Rock: You must've felt even better because it put you out of the match. And then last week, The Rock can only imagine how big you felt getting your candy ass sent flying over the top rope, courtesy of SmackDown! Airlines new frequent jabroni service!
Rock: Not to mention the fact two weeks ago you interfered in the WWE Championship match, only to run away like a little girl when The Rock came for your ass, so you can shut your mouth before The Rock sticks a copy of your terrible rap CD down it!
Bigger pop as Cena takes his cap off and begins to walk to the ring
Cena: You wanna do this right now Rock? Huh? You want me to embarrass you right here in the nations capital?
Crowd goes nuts with anticipation
Edge: GOD DAMNIT I'VE HAD ENOUGH OF THIS! ALL OF YOU IDIOTS SHUT UP! I'M THE WWE CHAMPION AND I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO PUT UP WITH THIS CRAP!
Heat for Edge as tensions really begin to mount between all involved...
*HAVE A NICE DAY*
Hits and the crowd gets to their feet to greet the General Manager, Mick Foley
Foley: Looks like we've got ourselves a big situation, right here, in Washington DC!
Marks for the cheap pop in typical Foley fashion, he salutes the fans with the thumbs up
Foley: Now all this arguing and bickering is gonna stop right here. Regardless of what has been said, The Rock is still the Number One Contender for the WWE Title and that isn't changing.
Foley: However Lesnar, you want a piece of The Rock tonight? Rock, you and Edge wanna fight? Then tonight in the main event, Edge, you'll team with John Cena and Brock Lesnar, and you three will face the team of The Rock, Rob Van Dam and...TRIPLE H!
Big pop from the crowd for that match, especially with Triple H's addition, being a bit of a surprise
Foley: And John Cena, you are on your last warning. One more incident like you've caused the last few weeks, and I will not hesitate to have you suffer the consequences!
Foley: Oh and, have a nice day.
Foley's music hits again and we cut to a commercial with plenty of trash being talked between the team mates of Edge, Cena and Lesnar, and part of their opposition in The Rock
We come back and Lance Cade is in the ring, ready for the upcoming match
*DEBONAIRE* hits and the crowd pops big as out comes Rhyno. The Man Beast pounds on his chest and raises his arms high, before sprinting to the ring to get things started
Hardcore Championship Match
Rhyno(c) vs Lance Cade
After trading right hands in the opening stages, Cade hits a knee to Rhyno and tries to mount the offensive, only to cop a stiff shoulder block from Rhyno. It's not long before the weapons come into play as Rhyno goes to town on the brash youngster with a couple of road signs. Rhyno then brings the trash cans into play, but Cade ducks a shot from the lid, and then boots Rhyno in the gut, picks up the trash can and smacks Rhyno over the head with it. Cade then whips Rhyno to the ropes and catches him on the rebound with a DROP TOE HOLD INTO THE TRASH CAN! Cover 1...2..NO! Rhyno kicks out.
Cade stays on top and it's his turn to bring a weapon into play, as he reaches under the ring and pulls out a Kendo Stick. Cade gets into the ring and cracks the stick over Rhyno's back, before dropping an elbow to the Man Beast and making another cover 1...2.kickout. Cade sets up a trash can and attempts to slam Rhyno onto it, but Rhyno slips out the back and takes Cade down with a Russian Leg Sweep! Rhyno now takes the trash can in hand and BELTS CADE OVER THE HEAD WITH IT! Cover 1...2...NO! Cade manages to get a shoulder up. The two continue to slug it out with the action spilling to the outside where Cade tries to Suplex Rhyno, but Rhyno blocks it and then SUPLEXES CADE ON THE RAMP WAY! Ouch. Another cover 1...2...NO! Cade again just escapes the pinfall. Rhyno brings Cade to his feet and slams his face into the security barricade, before whipping Cade towards the steel steps, but Cade counters, and SENDS RHYNO CRASHING INTO THE STEEL STEPS! Cade struggles across and makes a cover on Rhyno 1...2...NO! Rhyno kicks out.
Cade reaches under the ring and pulls out a wooden crate! Cade places the crate in the ring and rolls a groggy Rhyno in. Cade makes a motion that he's gonna finish Rhyno off, but the fans get to their feet as MARK JINDRAK SLIDES INTO THE RING! Cade turns to see what the crowd is making such a fuss of AND IS SMACKED WITH A LEFT HOOK FROM JINDRAK! Jindrak sends his former partner down, and then turns his attention to Rhyno. Jindrak brings Rhyno up and, trying to take advantage of the 24/7 ruling, goes for the MARK OF EXCELLENCE but Rhyno breaks free from Jindrak's grasp, kicks Jindrak in the gut and loads him up with a RHYNO DRIVER...RIGHT THROUGH THE WOODEN CRATE! Crowd marks like fuck for that spot and an "ECW" chant breaks out as Jindrak's head is driven through the wooden crate that was brought in by Cade moments earlier. In taking out Jindrak, Rhyno has taken his eye of Cade and Cade takes advantage, grabbing a trash can lid and BLASTING RHYNO WITH IT! The Man Beast goes down and Cade covers 1...2...NO! Rhyno gets a shoulder up. Cade slaps the mat in frustration, then picks up another trash can and lodges it in between the middle and top turnbuckles. Lance now brings Rhyno to his feet and Irish Whips Rhyno towards the can...but Rhyno reverses it... AND CADE GOES CRASHING BACK FIRST INTO THE TRASH CAN! Cade stumbles out, holding his back and is met by a GORE! Rhyno makes the cover 1...2...3!
Winner @ 9:35 - Rhyno
Retains Hardcore Championship
The crowd erupts as Rhyno retains his title here in a great showcase for the recently neglected Hardcore division. Rhyno is handed his title and he gingerly raises it high to the appreciative fans here
JR: Rhyno retains his title, in one hell of a match!
King: That was a brutal one JR, I can't believe Mark Jindrak stuck his nose in Cade's business, Lance Cade was looking like he was going to win that match!
JR: After all Cade has done to Jindrak in the past few weeks, revenge was more than on the menu for Jindrak tonight, as he tried to take the Hardcore title off Rhyno afterwards, but ultimately failed. This Rhyno is some formidable Champion.
King: That he is, I still can't get over that huge 6 Man Tag made for tonight's main event though JR. I mean, The Rock teaming with Rob Van Dam and Triple H to take on Edge, John Cena and Brock Lesnar? It's one of the biggest matches we've seen here on RAW.
JR: Without doubt King, it's gonna be a massive match.
We go backstage now and SHANE MCMAHON is standing by, to the shock of many in the audience, not expecting to see him in the building
Shane: You all must be wondering, just what the hell I am doing here tonight?
Shane: You must all be wondering, why am I risking my wellbeing, with Triple H obviously in this very same building tonight?
Crowd boos Shane
Shane: And that is simply because, Triple H needs to hear this. Triple H needs to see this, from whatever monitor or television screen he's watching it from. Hunter, your words last week had me thinking, why should we wait for Armageddon? Maybe we can give the fans a much wanted preview...
Shane: But before you all get ahead of yourselves, this won't be any normal match. I'm not dumb enough to make that kind of mistake so close to the PPV itself. However Hunter, I want to give you a taste of what you can expect, come our Ambulance match. I want to make you realize that I am dead serious about beating you, I am dead serious about making you pay for what you've done to my father.
Shane: Which is why Triple H, I am challenging you to come to the ring, live on Monday Night RAW next week, and face me.
Shane: However, as I said earlier, this won't be any normal match. I will give you a preview Hunter, let's say, 3 minutes in the ring with me. A little preview Hunter, 3 minutes.
Shane: Imagine it Hunter, you'll get the chance to try and take some much wanted anger out on me after all I've done to you, and I will likewise to you, after what you've done to my father. So how about it Hunter? I'll be hoping to hear an answer from you before the night's over.
Shane goes to walk off, but stops, and turns back to the camera
Shane: Oh and Hunter, don't be so stupid as to look around the building for me tonight, because I'm not gonna stick around. I'll be awaiting your answer from the safety of an undisclosed location, just so you don't get any ideas.
Shane: As I said Hunter, the challenge is there, I'll be waiting for the answer...
Shane O Mac turns and walks off as we cut to a commercial
We return and are shown an outside shot of the arena as our commentators welcome us back
JR: Welcome back folks and yes we are live from Washington DC, and King, it's been some night already!
King: The show kicked off in crazy fashion JR, and we've got a massive 6 Man Tag main event as a result of it.
JR: And we just saw Shane McMahon challenge Triple H to a 3 Minute match next week on RAW.
King: I don't think that was the wisest thing Shane could've done JR, I know he's eager for revenge, but Triple H could well beat him so badly in those few minutes, he may not make it to Armageddon!
JR: Knowing Shane like I've come to over the years, I'm sure he's got some ulterior plan in mind.
Fatal 4 Way; Number One Contender's Match
Mickie James vs Gail Kim vs Beth Phoenix vs Victoria
Well worked match between the four divas, each coming close on various falls to being crowned the number one contender for Trish Stratus' Women's Championship. In the end however, it's The Glamazon who scores the decisive fall, as Mickie scores a MICK KICK to Victoria, she is then done in with the GAIL FORCE (Over The Shoulder Belly To Back Driver) by Gail Kim, who then falls victim to Beth Phoenix's DOWN IN FLAMES. Beth makes the cover on Gail and picks up the victory and the opportunity to face Trish Stratus for the Women's Championship
Winner @ 6:58 - Beth Phoenix
Phoenix scores another big win and continues her roll since her injury return, and makes a motion that she's gonna soon be the champ, motioning it around her waist as the referee raises her hand
JR: This Beth Phoenix is on a roll, and now she's got the official match with Trish Stratus and her Women's Champion!
King: Trish's long reign could be over at this rate JR.
JR: I don't doubt that, Phoenix has been unstoppable since her return. But you can never count out Trish Stratus, she's a terrific champion and can always get it done, no matter the opposition.
We now go backstage where Todd Grisham is standing by
Grisham: Ladies and gentlemen, my guest at this time, Monty Brown!
Heat as Brown and Coach come into view
Grisham: Monty, last week you issued the challenge to Kane to face you at Armageddon, have you got an answer yet?
Monty: No Todd, I haven't. Kane, I'm telling you now, to just man up and face me big man. I'm not scared of you and your big pyro displays, all this crap that you're the Big Red Machine, because I'm the ALPHA MALE!
Monty: I'll take you down to the Serengeti, and once you're there, there ain't no coming back. I'm gonna put you down there with your brother, The Undertaker, and leave you down there.
Monty passes the mic onto Coach
Coach: And as for tonight, Monty is about to go out there and continue to show everybody just who is the new force in this business. It doesn't matter who he's gonna face, because Monty Brown is gonna plow through them, and then at Armageddon, he's gonna plow through Kane.
Boos from the crowd
Coach: Kane, you and your usual antics can't work on Monty, this man cannot be staunched!
Brown takes the mic back
Monty: And Kane, watch closely what I do out there in that ring tonight, when I take another victim to the Serengeti, and teach another worthless soul to fear the POUNCEEEEEEEE!
Crowd boos again
Monty: And show everybody that Monty Brown...AIN'T NO JOKE!
Brown & Coach walk off as his music *ALPHA MALE* hits to heat and moments later out comes Brown, powering to the ring with Coach in his ear, getting his monster all ready to go. Brown takes his coat off and almost like a wild animal, prowls back and forth, awaiting his "prey"
*HELLO LADIES* plays to a light face reaction as the veteran Val Venis makes his way out to the ring, eyes widened at the prospect of facing Monty Brown. Val cautiously gets into the ring, and as soon as he does, Monty attacks him, beginning the match
Squash Singles Match
Val Venis vs Monty Brown w/The Coach
To Val's credit he does manage to get some offense in, which is more than can be said for Monty's latest victim Goldust, who was given the beating of his life, however, Val cannot maintain his brief offensive period, and it's not long before Brown grounds him with the Alphalution slam! Monty brings Val up and drops him with a Full Circle! Cover 1...2..BROWN PULLS VAL OFF THE MAT! Monty grins evilly and brings Venis to his feet and whips him to the ropes, then springs off to the side and rebounds to the up coming Val with a POUNCE! Monty makes the elementary cover 1...2...3!
Winner @ 3:46 - Monty Brown
Brown is dominant once more and Coach applauds his man's performance as Monty raises his hands high to some fairly loud heat from the fans
JR: Like him or not, and I certainately don't, this Monty Brown is a force to be reckoned with folks!
King: How could you not like this man JR? He's a beast.
JR: Oh geez King I dunno, maybe it's because he buried The Undertaker alive just a few weeks ago?
King: Who cares JR, Undertaker's done and dusted, Monty Brown is gonna be the new force in the WWE for years to come, I'm predicting it!
JR: Ugh, one can only hope not.
We come back live and the camera pans around the crowd
*JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES*
The crowd ERUPTS with a mixed reaction, easily leaning towards heat, although there are some very audible "Peeps" in the crowd tonight it seems as Christian and Tyson Tomko make their way to the ring, with Christian not in his regular chipper mood. Captain Charisma takes a mic from Lilian Garcia and gets into the ring
Christian: Sup Washington?
Christian: Where my Peeps at?
Another mixed reaction as Christian points out a few in the audience
Christian: Now all my Peeps, you all saw what happened last week to Captain Charisma in the Battle Royal. I was doing the usual, kicking ass and taking names, because that's just how I roll...
Christian: When a certain bald, loud mouthed, beer drinking redneck, having already been eliminated from the match by me, came back in and gave me the Stunner!
Big pop for that
Christian: Stone Cold, you should've learned not to mess with me after the way I put you down with ease two weeks ago. The way I bloodied you right in this very ring, the way I embarrassed the so called "Toughest SOB in the WWE".
Christian: Stone Cold Steve Austin attacked me, tried to go toe to toe with Captain Charisma, and couldn't cut the mustard!
Christian: Austin, two weeks ago I showed how washed up, how past your time you were.
Christian: Austin, you used to be one of the baddest, most feared individuals in the WWE. You used to come out here, raise some hell, whip some ass, drink some bear, flip off people left and right, and you'd be cherished by the fans. But now, you're a shadow of your former self. You can't do it like you used to. And the fans that used to love you and your antics, the ones who sold out arenas and rocked them when your music hit, they now have a new idol. They have a new favourite, and you're looking right at him, me!
Scattered marks from the crowd, but overall, crowd chits on Christian for that
Christian: Now I come out here, I do the talking, I back it up with the walking, and give all my Peeps their much needed weekly dose of Vitamin C!
Christian: I've proven how much of a fraud you've become Austin. You still talk a big game, but when it comes down to the time to back it up, you can't hang with the best like you used to. You had to result to cheaply attacking me last week after I had eliminated you from the Battle Royal.
Crowd starts a "Bullshit" chant, as Christian seemingly forgets to mention he had Tomko's help to eliminate Austin in the first place
Christian: You're done Austin, you can't handle the competition anymore, you should have NEVER come back to this business. Since you came back in April, you've not exactly had such a good run. Let's go back and look at the facts. First off was Edge, and he beat you. Then it was John Cena, and he bloodied and choked you out. Then at Survivor Series, well, we all know how that went down, don't we?
Big heat as Christian smirks
Christian: Fact is Aus-
The crowd EXPLODES with a thunderous ovation as Stone Cold Steve Austin walks out on stage, mic in hand, glaring at Christian with those trademark cold, blue eyes
Austin: My God son, I don't ever recall seeing one person talk so much crap in my entire life!
Austin: I mean the fact that ya forgot to mention how ya pet goat there decided to come into the ring and get my attention, before ya creeped up and eliminated me ya sneaky little bastard, just shows how deluded you really are.
Pop as Tomko takes exception to Austin's goat reference
Austin: What's the matter ya big, dumb bastard?
Austin: Ya wanna try and attack me, twice, in one night? Huh? Well ya tried and UH-UH, ya failed. Ya look like ya wanna be like Stone Cold?
Austin: Ya wanna shave your head like Stone Cold?
Austin: Ya wanna act like Stone Cold?
Austin: Walk like Stone Cold?
Austin: Talk like Stone Cold?
Christian: Shut up Austin!
Austin: Christian ya creepy little bastard, don't make me open the biggest can of whoop ass Washington DC has ever seen all over ya!
Big pop as an "Austin" chant starts up
Austin: Two weeks ago, ya made the biggest mistake of your career when ya assaulted me and left me to bleed in the middle of the ring. And last week, you made another mistake trying to send that big thing with the beard after me, twice, during the battle royal!
Christian: I didn't make any mistakes Austin, I don't make mistakes.
Austin's eyes widen as if to say "O RLY?"
Austin: Believe me when I say ya did, because once ya cross me son, there's no coming back. Ya run ya damn mouth on how I should have never came back to this business, that I'm washed up, I'm past it.
Boos for that, crowd not agreeing with Christian's earlier assessment
Austin: I came back to this business because it's the most important thing to me in my life! It's my passion, it's what I do best and can't nobody stand here, especially a little smart assed son of a bitch like you, and tell me different!
Austin: There ain't never been anybody that can raise hell like me, there ain't never been anybody who can open up a can of whoop ass like I can, and there will never be anyone who can stand here and tell me when I'm past it, when I'm finished.
Christian: That's enough of your rambling Austin, my Peeps don't care about your life story!
Austin: I warned ya not to interrupt me again ya si-
Christian: Or what Austin? What are you gonna do? You gonna try and open a can of whoop ass on me?
Crowd pops, wanting to see it
Christian: The last time you tried that, I left you lying a broken heap!
Austin: Don't test me son, or so help me God I'll send you back to Canada quicker than you can say Mothercanucker!
Christian: That's it, I've had enough. It's about time someone shut you up for good Austin! That's why, right now, in this very ring, you're gonna get to go one on one with...TOMKO!
Crowd boos as TOMKO ATTACKS AUSTIN FROM BEHIND and it seems as if we've got ourselves an impromptu match
Impromptu Singles Match
Stone Cold Steve Austin vs Tyson Tomko w/Christian
The crowd is all over Tomko as he hammers away at Austin in the early stages after jumping him in this surprise contest. Tomko looks to end things with a BIG BOOT...BUT AUSTIN CATCHES IT! Tomko begs with Austin for mercy, and Austin takes a moment to mock him, before flipping him off with the bird and tripping him down to the mat, and stomping just above the belt line! The crowd pops as Austin rebounds off the ropes and drops the Fuck You elbow to Tomko. Stone Cold brings Tomko to his feet and sends him to the ropes, going for a Reverse Elbow, but Tomko ducks under it, rebounds off the opposite side of the ring and is met by a Lou Thesz Press by Austin! Stone Cold unloads with a barrage of right hands to Tomko to a huge pop. Austin now climbs the turnbuckle and comes off the middle rope with a Diving Elbow Drop! Cover 1...2..kickout. Austin is on fire now as he hits a series of right hands, backing Tomko into the corner, before he stomps a mudhole in Tyson and walks it dry. Austin then catches Tomko staggering out of the corner with a Whiplash Spinebuster! Cover 1...2..shoulder up! With Austin all over his Problem Solver, Christian attempts to sneak up on Austin, but Austin sees it coming and turns around, coming face to face with Christian! The crowd erupts as Christian tries to bargain Stone Cold off, as Tomko regains his footing out of Austin's view. Tomko gets to his feet and charges at Austin with a BIG BOOT...BUT AUSTIN HEARS IT COMING, DUCKS AND TOMKO PLOWS THROUGH CHRISTIAN! The crowd marks as Christian is sent tumbling out over the top rope to the floor and Tomko turns around into a STUNNER! Austin covers for the win!
Winner @ 5:37 - Stone Cold Steve Austin
The crowd erupts as Austin beats Tomko in emphatic fashion and sends a message loud and clear to Christian that he's far from done. Austin doesn't go through his usual post match celebrations however, as he calls for a mic
Austin: Christian, you just found out that I'm far from finished, and if you've got any balls to back up your big words, how about you see just what Stone Cold has in store for ya ass at Armageddon?
Christian: You're on Austin! I'm gonna show the whole world you're done!
Crowd erupts again as the match is made and Austin's music hits again as he calls for a few Steveweisers as we head to a commercial
JR: Welcome back to Monday Night RAW folks, and we've just been told to make it official to everybody that at Armageddon, adding onto the huge Austin & Christian mstch made just a few moments ago, Rob Van Dam will go one on one with Brock Lesnar! What a huge match that will be King.
King: It's a massive match no doubt, and the perfect stage for Lesnar to propel himself to the top of RAW!
JR: Well RVD can never be written off and I think Lesnar is gonna be in for one hell of a match come Armageddon!
We go backstage now and are in the locker room of Triple H! The Game is taping up his hands as there is a knock on the down
Triple H: Yeah?
The door opens and in walks THE ROCK! The crowd goes wild and Triple H looks up, taking notice of his partner for later tonight. There is a momentarily stare down between the two former fierce rivals, before the ice is finally broken
Rock: The Rock isn't gonna beat around the bush, he knows you and him have a history, and one hell of a history at that.
Triple H nods
Rock: However, The Rock needs to know that for tonight, that you're gonna put that history behind you for the sake of getting the job done out there.
Triple H: You don't need to worry about it Rock, I could ask you the same thing, are you gonna put it behind you?
Rock: You bet your left nut The Rock will, because there are more important things to The Rock than something that happened, what, 6 years ago?
The two agree on tha
Rock: There is one other thing The Rock needs to know, and that is to borrow a phrase from your former group and ask, are you ready?
Triple H: (Slight tongue in cheek) You bet your right nut I'm ready.
Pop from the crowd as Trips looks all smug with that one, and the two share an un easy laugh, if only brief, still seemingly not 100% able to trust each other, yet
Rock: Three of the biggest jabroni's the world has ever seen, are gonna be opposite you, Rob Van Dam and The Rock tonight, and The Rock just needed to make sure you're head is in "The Game" as you say...
Triple H: You don't need to worry about it, my head's always in "The Game" and tonight is no different.
Rock: Just as long as The Rock knows you won't let it wonder to the thought of Shane McMahon...
Triple H: It won't be, when I get out to that ring, I'm always focused on the job in hand and tonight won't see that change.
Rock nods to Trips again
Rock: Then The Rock will see you out there later.
Triple H: Sure thing.
Rock & Trips share another somewhat awkward look at each other before The Rock leaves the room and Triple H goes back to taping up
JR: That was some moment right there folks, The Rock and Triple H, two of the biggest superstars in this business, and former bitter rivals, face to face backstage and tonight they'll be on the same team with Rob Van Dam as they team up to face Edge, John Cena and Brock Lesnar in what promises to be a slobberknocker of a main event!
King: I had goosebumps from that confrontation JR, despite how they got on, you have to feel there's still a little tension between the two still, even after all these years.
JR: I'm not gonna argue that at all King.
The crowd gives some average heel heat as Chris Masters makes his way to the ring, getting ready for the upcoming match
The crowd erupts as out comes Kane after the pyro explodes. Kane receives a generally loud pop as The Big Red Machine storms to the ring, and Chris Masters can't help but gulp at the fact he has to face a no doubt pissed off Kane
Kane vs Chris Masters
It's a typical, sluggish big man match with Kane in rampant form early on, but to his credit, Chris Masters manages to get some offense in too and halt the Big Red Machine's momentum, grounding him with an impressive showing of strength by catching a running Kane with a Powerslam! Masters works over Kane, weakening him up for his patented MASTERLOCK and attempts to lock it on, but Kane blocks it, and in the end, Masters is able to plant Kane with a Full Nelson Slam! Cover 1...2..kickout.
Masters gets a little cocky and this leads to Kane hitting his stride with a Suplex block, countering it with a Suplex of his own to Masters. Kane then rocks Chris Masters with right hands and then scores with a Tilt-A-Whirl Sideslam as he catches Masters charging in at him, cover 1...2..kickout. Masters can't maintain any sort of offense on Kane and The Big Red Machine finishes the match, hitting him with a thunderous CHOKESLAM FROM HELL!
Winner @ 6:26 - Kane
The crowd pops as Kane gets a good win here and Kane goes to let his pyro fly as usual WHEN HE IS SUDDENLY LEVELLED BY A POUNCEEEEEEEEE!~
Monty Brown has snuck through the crowd and hit Kane hard. Brown generates some heavy heat for his actions and the Serengeti backs up the ramp grinning as Kane is down in the ring
JR: Kane was just floored by Monty Brown!
King: This man scares me JR, he just knocked Kane down with ease, and Kane is 320 pounds!
JR: It was a cheap shot though, I can't wait to see if Brown can sustain a fight with Kane when they're toe to toe at Armageddon, I have a feeling Brown is gonna feel the wrath of Kane there and then!
Brown raises his arms up on the stage to more heat when KANE SITS UP IN THE RING! The crowd pops for that and Monty's eyes widen, in a mix of shock and anger. Kane gets to his feet a little gingerly and stands in the ring, slowly shaking his head at Monty and then in trademark fashion, Kane runs his thumb across his throat, signalling Monty's impending end to another pop from the crowd while Monty shouts back at Kane "That's just a taste of what's to come!" and we cut backstage and we are in the office of Mick Foley when Shelton Benjamin, the Intercontinental Champion, walks in
Shelton: This had better be good!
Foley seems a little taken aback by Shelton's attitude
Foley: Well Shelton, I don't think it is necessarily for you...
Shelton: Then why are you wasting my time?
Foley: Because Shelton, like it or not, and I know you're not the only one who doesn't, I RUN THIS SHOW!
Foley: And after the great run of results he's had in the past few weeks, I am telling you right now, that at Armageddon, you'll be defending your Intercontinental Championship against AJ Styles!
Pop as Shelton's eyes widen
Foley: But nothing Shelton. He's pinned you twice, he beat your partner Charlie Haas last week, he's more than done enough to warrant his title shot.
Shelton looks like he wants to yell various expletives at Foley, but he eventually turns around to walk out when he bumps right into AJ STYLES! The crowd pops and Shelton glares at Styles, who can't help but smile back
Shelton: Get out of my way boy.
AJ: I just wanted to say good luck at Armageddon, Shelton.
AJ smirks and extends his hand to Shelton, knowing he's well and truly under Benji's skin, and Shelton doesn't say a word
AJ: Coz at this rate, you're gonna need it more than me...
Crowd pops and Benji bumps past Styles with a slightly worried look in his eyes, knowing how AJ has pinned him twice in the past 3 weeks
Backstage now and we see Brock Lesnar walking through the halls, with the big main event only moments away when someone in the distance calls out to him
???: BROCK LESNAR!
Lesnar turns in the direction of the voice which belongs to none other than JAMES E. CORNETTE! Sections of the crowd (the ones who aren't n00bs or kids) mark hard to see him back in the WWE, a huge shocker of an appearance tonight
Lesnar: Yeah, what do you want?
Cornette: Well, I've been watching you the last few weeks Brock, and you've shown some incredible progress with yourself, not just as a wrestler, but as an overall package, you're almost there.
Lesnar: What's your point?
Cornette: Surely Brock, you must know who I am?
Lesnar: You're Jim Cornette, I know that.
Wow, this convo's about as stimulating the disc. thread is atm ZING!~
Lesnar: Yeah, and?
Cornette: And Brock, I feel with me by your side, I can mould you into the very best in this business. Hell, forget this business, I am confident I can take you to the top of the world.
Lesnar seems to pay a little more attention to this
Cornette: I've done it with others in the past Brock, and I firmly believe with my guidance, you'll reach heights the others could only dream of reaching.
Lesnar thinks Cornette's proposal over
Cornette: How about it Brock? Do you want to be all you can be, and then some?
Cornette can't hide his joy as he shakes Lesnar's hand
Cornette: Great! Brock, I can assure you, this is going to be the best decision you've made in your career.
Lesnar: Don't make me feel otherwise.
Cornette: Oh I won't, put your faith in me Brock. Now come on, you've got a big match coming up...
Cornette walks away with Lesnar
JR: JIM CORNETTE IS BACK IN THE WWE!
King: I'm in shock JR, truly unbelievable.
JR: That may be great news for Brock Lesnar, but for the rest of RAW, I'm not so sure.
*MY TIME IS NOW*
The crowd pours heat on John Cena as he makes his way out. Cena taunts the fans as he heads to the ring with his usual confident swagger of sorts. He throws up the Word Life sign in the ring, and the crowd boos the fuck outta him again
*HERE COMES THE PAIN*
The heat continues as out comes Lesnar with his new affiliate, Jim Cornette. Lesnar bobs up and down on the spot as usual while Cornette talks him up. Lesnar walks to the ring with purpose and hops onto the apron, as the pyro shoots up. Lesnar and Cena stare off for a moment until
Hits and the Rated R Superstar makes his way to the ring with his
whore wife Lita by his side. Edge slides into the ring and raises his WWE Title high before sharing a frown with his partners tonight. The trio come close and begin to exchange words, with none of them really seeming to be able to get along too well
*ONE OF A KIND*
The crowd's mood changes as the pyro crashes around the titantron and "Mr. Monday Night" appears on stage to a big pop. RVD does his trademark thumb point taunt as his name is announced by Lilian Garcia and stops at the foot of the ring, awaiting his team mates arrivals
The crowd erupts with a huge ovation as Motorhead's popular track blares throughout the speakers and Triple H steps out on stage. He drops a bit of water onto his head and then takes a sip before spraying it up into the air. Triple H walks to the ring and nods to RVD as the duo enter the ring, and the heels clear to ringside, allowing Triple H to mount the turnbuckle and do his iconic pose
*IF YA SMELL*
The building rocks with an incredible pop as The Rock comes out, soaking up The People's reception for their favourite superstar. Rock walks along the apron and mounts the turnbuckle, again soaking up the electric ovation he receives. Rock looks down to Triple H, and then to RVD, before joining them both in the ring
JR: We are just moments away from our huge main event folks, we'll be right back!
6 Man Tag Match
The Rock, Triple H & Rob Van Dam
Edge, John Cena & Brock Lesnar w/Lita & Jim Cornette
Wild main event sees the action begin with all six men slugging it out, Rock with Edge, Triple H with Lesnar and Van Dam with Cena. After order is asserted by Mike Chioda, Triple H starts things off with Edge. The Game, taking the frustrations of the past few weeks out on Edge, begins the match on fire, chopping the hell out of Edge in the corner and then taking him down with a Hip Toss. Trips tags in RVD and holds Edge in an Abdominal Stretch position, exposing the gut of the Rated R Superstar, and RVD comes off the top rope with an Axe Handle Sledge to it. Van Dam takes it to Edge, before Edge blocks a kick from RVD and hits a DDT, allowing Cena the tag in. Cena cockily walks in, gives Rock a "You Can't See Me" taunt and then springs off the ropes, looking for the 5 Knuckle Shuffle, but RVD avoids it! Cena holds his hand and RVD nails him with a Gun Packet dropkick. Van Dam then tags back into Triple H who plows through Cena with a hard clothesline. Cover 1...2..NO! Trips goes to end the match with an early PEDIGREE, but Cena counters it and catapults The Game into the turnbuckle! Cena tags out to Lesnar who comes at The Game WHO TAGS IN THE ROCK! The crowd erupts as Rock comes in and goes punch for punch with Lesnar. Lesnar gets the upper hand by raising a knee to Rock's midsection and then takes Rocky down with a Belly To Belly Suplex! Cover 1...2..shoulder up.
The matches goes on and sees Rock get Lesnar with a Grecko-Roman Overhead Throw. Rock tags in RVD and Van Dam nails a Spinning Crescent Kick to Brock and covers 1...2..kickout. On the outside, Cornette encourages his new client to get back into it. After a while it's Van Dam who gets isolated by the heels after Lita pulls the top rope down as RVD, who had put Edge down with a Scoop Slam, attempted to hit the ropes. As Rock & Trips go to help their team mate, Chioda stops them, telling them to get back to their corner while Cena & Lesnar mug RVD on the outside out of the ref's view. They roll a battered RVD back into the ring and Edge begins to work over Van Dam's left leg, to limit his offense he produces with those deadly feet. After a series of tandem moves and quick tags, the heels have RVD thoroughly grounded and after Cena scores with the Protoplex, The Rock makes the save for Van Dam, stomping on Cena's head to a huge pop. Rock then mocks Cena's earlier taunt as he returns to his corner. Cena, in a rare brain explosion, takes his eye off RVD to trash talk with The Rock, while Edge & Lesnar yell at him to get back to the match. RVD regains his footing and spins Cena around, going for a kick, but Cena catches it...AND RVD NAILS THE STEP OVER WINDMILL KICK TO THE JAW OF CENA! The crowd pops and get behind Van Dam with an "RVD" chant, urging him to make the take to the outstretched hands of The Rock or Triple H. Cena is able to tag into Edge AND VAN DAM LEAPS ACROSS AND TAGS IN...THE ROCK!
The crowd explodes as Rock runs through Edge with a clothesline, and then another, then rocks Lesnar on the apron with a right hand. John Cena tries to sneak attack Rocky from behind but Rock sees him coming, blocks his shot and begins Layin' The Smackdown on Cena! Edge however hits a forearm to the back of The Rock, stopping him, which brings The Game into the match! Triple H levels Edge with a right hand and then sends him to the ropes and scores with a High Knee! Cena rakes the eyes of The Rock and then tackles Trips to the mat and begins pummeling at him with right hands. As this is going on, Brock Lesnar grabs The Rock and trips him down, then drags him out to the floor. Lesnar whips Rock into the barricade and the two begin to go at it. Cena meanwhile brings Hunter up and whips him to the ropes, but lowers his head too early and Triple H catches him with the Facebuster!
Edge grabs Triple H from behind however and attempts to hit the Edgeacution, but Triple H blocks it and counters with the AA Spinebuster! What follows sees Triple H get up and Cena CLOTHESLINES HIM OUT TO THE FLOOR, WITH REF MIKE CHIODA CAUGHT IN THE MESS! Triple H, Cena and Chioda all go crashing out to the floor. RVD is back to his feet and he goes towards Edge, who was playing possum, grabs Van Dam and pulls him out of the ring. Edge slides out after him and noticing Mike Chioda down and out, smiles sadistically and picks up a steel chair! Edge waits for Van Dam to get to his feet as Rock & Lesnar and Trips & Cena are fighting around the other side of the ring. RVD gets to his feet and Edge swings the chair...but RVD ducks it! Edge turns back around and Van Dam wrestles the chair from him THEN LAUNCHES IT AT EDGE...WHO DUCKS...AND THE CHAIR SMASHES LITA RIGHT IN THE FACE! The crowd breaks into a "Holy Shit" chant as Edge's darling woman gets creamed by the launched steel chair. Edge checks on Lita for a moment, then gets up and goes after RVD, KICKING HIM SQUARE IN THE GROIN! With the ref down, it's all legal folks as Edge picks up the chair that just nailed Lita and BENDS IT OVER RVD'S SKULL! Nasty shit. Edge doesn't stop there however as HE HITS VAN DAM AGAIN! And again! And again! This continues about 10-15 times, with Edge going crazy on Van Dam to massive heat from the fans. Edge then places the chair under a lifeless RVD and grabs another, the crowd knowing what's coming. Mike Chioda is finally coming to and does so just in time to witness Edge deliver A SICKENING CON-CHAIR-TO TO RVD! Chioda calls for the bell as the heat pours in on Edge
Winners @ 14:32 via DQ - The Rock, Triple H & Rob Van Dam
The match is stopped and The Rock sees what's happened as he gets away from Lesnar and breaks around to get Edge away from a bloodied and lifeless RVD. Edge grabs his WWE Title and carries Lita, who is out like a light, away as Rock & Triple H attend to their downed partner at ringside, while the heels all re group on the ramp, the camera focusing on Edge's possessive face
JR: THAT NO GOOD SON OF A BITCH! BY GOD EDGE MAY HAVE CRIPPLED ROB VAN DAM! WHAT A HINEOUS ACT!
King: Oh come on JR he was overcome with emotion, he just witnessed Lita get hit in the face with a chair!
JR: I'm sure that damn jezzebelle will be just fine in a few days, nothing compared to what RVD could suffer.
King: I have to agree, Edge went a bit too far but still, it's not like he wasn't provoked.
JR: WE NEED SOME DAMN MEDICS OUT HERE, GET SOME EMT'S OUT HERE NOW DAMMIT!
Some medics rush down to attend to RVD and one even bothers stopping to check on Lita at Edge's request, while Rock & Triple H stand in the ring, staring down the heel's who back up the ramp
Fade To Black
I was feeling this one a bit more than last week, the improvement in the major promo's should hopefully show that (both depth and quality went up, imo). Enjoy, I will as always, do my best to return all feedback/comments/reviews. <3.
