Re: WWE: Life After Vince
Monday Night WAR live from Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio
(The show starts with a dancing team of scantily dressed women led by the WWE's own Kelly Kelly in the ring. After the dance routine is ended, we see a video recap of what happened on the RAW show earlier. As we see the women leave the ring, the music of "The Shaman of Sexy" John Morrison plays. Morrison comes out and does his trademark slow-motion pose. On the way to ringside, he stops Kelly Kelly and whispers something in her ear. She blushes as Morrison smiles and watches her walk up the ramp before continuing to ringside. Morrison gets to ring as Jillian announces his opponent and the crowd goes wild for Matt Hardy. Hardy looks determined on his way to the ring and his way to the Intercontinental Title)
Match One-First Round, Intercontinental Title Tournament
John Morrison VS Matt Hardy
The opening bout on WAR was a solid match up as Hardy early on gave Morrison a wrestling lesson as he had a counter for all of John's moves. Hardy showed a newly found mean streak as he went to work on the shoulder of Morrison after a failed corkscrew to the outside sent John crashing to the arena floor. After hitting a "Side Effect", Matt almost got the fall but Morrison kicked out as the referee's hand was coming down for three. Hardy wasn't discouraged at all as the crowd rallied behind him, he celebrated with his fans as he waited for Morrison to get to his feet. Hardy locked Morrison in for "The Twist of Fate" and yelled to the crowd before sending Morrison to certain defeat. The brief second of hesitation gave Morrison the moment he was waiting for as he quickly countered ""The Twist of Fate" attempt into a small package to get the win.
Winner and moving on to face Val Venis in Round Two of the Intercontinental Tournament
(A visibly upset Matt Hardy is in the ring as he knows that he let the match slip away from him. He seems lost as he stares at the celebrating Morrison going up the ramp)
(We return to the backstage area as a camera is following Ric Flair as he walks into General Manager's Kevin Nash's office. We see Traci Brooks quickly getting off Nash's lap and turns her back as she buttons up her shirt)
Flair: "Whooaa, sorry big man didn't mean to interrupt but did you see what happened to Shawn Michaels earlier tonight."
Nash:"Yeah, I saw it but there really isn't anything I can do about it. I got to give the devil his due, Edge is a sneakier son of a bitch that I thought."
Flair:"I'm not here about Michael, I'm here about my man, "The Animal" Batista. You saw what Edge and Orton was planning on RAW earlier. Orton helped Edge keep the World Title so you know Edge is going to help Orton become WWE Champion. What are you going to do about it?"
(Nash looks like he is in deep thought when Traci whispers something in his ear. Nash smiles and slaps her on ass)
Nash: "Well my assistant here, Ms. Brooks just came up with a wonderful idea that I think you would like Naitch. How about tonight in the Fatal Four Way, Ric Flair being the Special Referee?"
Flair:"WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!"
(Flair starts strutting around the office and grasp Brooks and gives her a big kiss)
Flair:"WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT TOO!WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
(Flair leaves the office as Nash laughs to himself as Brooks looks shocked in the corner)
Nash:"Only Naitch!" (shakes his head thinking about Ric as Traci in the corner starts unbuttoning her blouse) " Whoaa we don't have time for that right now we gotta go too ringside, We have that special announcement to make."
(Traci looks disappointed as she re-buttons her shirt and Nash and Brooks head out on their way to the ring as we head to commercial)
(We come back from break and nine cruiser weights are in the ring awaiting for the Cruiser weight Title Battle Royal when GM Kevin Nash and his assistant Ms.Brooks appear on the ramp)
Nash: "Before we can get this shin-dig underway, I have an announcement to make. I said at the beginning of tonight's festivities that I will give the people what they want."
(Crowd pops as Nash hands the mic over to Traci)
Traci: "Tonight when you entered the arena, we had men giving out tickets to selective gentleman. Men that fitted the cruiser weight criteria and looked in good physical shape. We have selected one ticket of a fans to be the 10th participant in tonight's Cruiser weight Title Battle Royal. So the holder of ticket number #1233, tonight is your night to be a WWE superstar."
(The crowd goes wild as a man jumps up and high-fives people in the second level, security finds him and escorts him to the entrance ramp where he shakes hands with Nash and Brooks)
Nash (sizing the young blond head man up): Well, you look like you are in good shape and your are well under the 225 pound limit. So my man, what's your name?"
Fanstuttering): "Mmmmmy nnnname is Jack .....Jack Evans."
(He starts jumping up and down as the crowd is cheering wildly)
Nash: "Well, Jack....Jack Evans get in that ring and make me proud."
(Nash and Brooks leave the entrance ramp as Evans runs to the ring eagerly ready for his chance at stardom)
Match Two-Cruiserweight Title Battle Royal
AJ Styles, Bryan Danielson, Colt Cabana, Kofi Kingston, Jamie Noble, The Brian Kendrick, Teddy Hart, Evan Bourne,Hurricane Helms and Jack Evans
As soon as Evans enters the ring the bell sounds and Jamie Noble charges him, ready to greet the fan WWE-style but Evans sidesteps the Noble charge and catches him with a textbook enzuguri sending Noble over the top rope. The other 8 wrestlers stop and laugh at Noble, who is irate the he just got made a fool by a fan.
Elimination 1# Jamie Noble at the 8 second mark
As Evans and Noble jawed with each other, The Brian Kendrick saw an opening and ran at Evans from behind but at the last moment, Evans got a glimpse of Brian and backdropped him over the top for the elimination.
Elimination 2# The Brian Kendrick at the 26 second mark
Across the ring we see Colt Cabana on the top rope ready to splash on what looks like Evan Bourne laid out on the mat but before Cabana can leap off, Kofi Kingston comes charging across the ring and jumps up on the turnbuckles and catches him with kick to the face knocking Cabana off the top rope but onto the apron. Kingston doesn't see this as Cabana somehow gets up and starts to enter through the ropes when he gets caught by a baseball slide from AJ Styles that takes him to the floor for the elimination.
Elimination 3# Colt Cabana at the 48 second mark
Over the next few minutes the action and the eliminations slow down as the remaining seven try to wear down each other before trying to put someone over the ropes. Finally looks like Evan Bourne and Kofi is teaming up struggling to take the Hurricane over the top while he holds on for dear life. As Helms is almost completely out he grabs a hold of the bottom rope as Kofi and Evan try one more great push to cause Helms to let go of his grip when out of nowhere, they are hit from behind by a double clothesline by Teddy Hart causing the elimination of all three men.
Elimination 4#, Hurricane Helms at the 3:33 mark
Elimination 5# Evan Bourne at the 3:34 mark
Elimination 6# Kofi Kingston at the 3:35 mark
Teddy Hart, Bryan Danielson, AJ Styles and the instant fan favorite, Jack Evans remained in the ring as Styles hooked with "The American Dragon" and Teddy Hart catches Evans with a knee in the corner. Times ticks on as Danielson peppers Styles with a series of chops and kicks while Evans has the upper hand on Hart, hitting a DDT. Danielson whips Styles in the ring but Styles counters with the "Pele" out of nowhere that staggers Danielson against the ropes. Styles though is too drained to follow up but before Danielson can shake it off, he catches a textbook dropkick to the mouth by Evans sending him over the top.
Elimination 7# Bryan Danielson at the 7:27 mark
The crowd is one feet as Evans has came out of nowhere and now has a real shot at becoming champion. Styles and Evans decides to team up on Hart as they work him over the corner with a series of boots to his stomach. As Hart slumps almost unconscious, Styles turns and hits Evans with a right hand to the chin sending Evans to the mat. As Evans gets up , he gets caught by a kick to the stomach and then gets caught with "The Styles Clash". Evans is laid out as Styles looks over at the still groggy Hart and pulls Evans up and drags him across the ring trying to put him over the top. At the last second, as Styles has Evans almost completely over,Evans comes to life and works his legs up and gets AJ head into a leg scissors. AJ tries desperately to push Evans over but finds him getting pulled over the top himself. As they struggle to eliminate each other, Teddy regains his composure and sees the opening. He comes sling shotting of the ropes and performs a cross body on the two tangled up in the ropes. But Hart misjudges his height and all of three men go over the top. They all three land in a jumble mass as referees don't know who the winner is. Finally a referee raises the hands of Jack Evans and the crowd goes wild. Hart and Styles is furious and starts pleading both their cases when another referee points to the Titan Tron which is showing the replay of the move. After watching the replay and a brief the conference the four referees make their decision.
Winner and new WWE Cruiser-weight Champion
Teddy Hart at the 12:55 mark
(We see the referees hand the belt to the shocked Teddy Hart, who holds it up over his head as Jack Evans and the crowd are in disbelief by the referee's reversal. Evans goes to offer a hand shake to Hart showing good sportsmanship but Hart slaps it away in disgust and walks up the ramp to a chorus of boos)
(We come back from commercial and see Ric Flair and Batista huddled together backstage when Edge and Angelina Love walks away carrying bags. As they go by Flair and Batista stops them)
Flair: "Where are you going Champ? Do you think we are stupid?"
Edge: (laughing) " What Ric? Do I think you are stupid? No, I don't but him (points at Batista), he isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, if you know what I mean?"
(Edge mocks Batista size as Flair holds Batista back)
Batista: (raging)" Don't think for a moment we believe that you are leaving for the night. Everybody knows about your deal with Orton earlier.?"
Edge: "Is that so, Dave. I have a piece of advice for ya, you shouldn't worry so much about me, big guy."
(Edge smirks at him and Angelina walk off as Flair holds back Batista once again from attacking)
(We go to the ring as we see Robert Roode standing in the ring in his wrestling gear with mic in one hand and a briefcase in the other)
Roode: "Hello, everybody my name is Robert Roode."
Roode: In my short stint here in the WWE, I have been overlooked. So since there is a new man in charge, I've decided to make my name known to all."
Roode: "So earlier I was impressed by seeing a fan come of the crowd and almost win the WWE Cruiser-weight title earlier, so that gave me an inspiration. I'm going to issue a challenge to anybody here in the arena to come in and face me one on one and if somehow I'm pinned they are going to win this..."
(Roode opens the briefcase and reveals that it is full of money)
Roode: "That's right 100 thousand dollars up for grabs! But I look out in this crowd and see nobody with a chance to win it. "
(Roode rolls out of the ring and goes around checking out the ringside fans when someone catches his eye)
Roode: "Look right here all you Buckeye fans, it is no other then your All-American linebacker, James Laurinaitis. What do you think James, do you want a crack at this money."
(Roode opens the briefcase again as the crowd is chanting for James to take on the challenge but James isn't biting as Roode returns to the ring)
Roode: "I'm not surprised in the least, I know his father, the supposed legend Road Warrior Animal and let's say James is acting just like him and that is being a COWARD!"
(The crowd boos as the camera shows the face of Laurinaitis has changed as he leaps over the guardrail and enters the ring)
$100,000 Roode Challenge
Robert Roode VS James Laurinaitis
As soon as James slid on the rope he was caught by a vicious elbow. Roode pounded away unmercifully on the Buckeye football legend as the crowd was giving him the loudest heat of the night. Roode hit Laurinaitis with a European uppercut and shot him into the ropes. James came off the ropes and delivered a devastating spear and followed with wicked punches to the head of Roode as he tried desperately to block the attack. Finally the ref, pulls James off for using closed fists and Roode rolls to the outside. He goes over and grabs the briefcase and walks up the ramp. A furious Laurinaitis charges after him but when he reaches Roode, he catches the briefcase to the face. Laurinaitis falls in a heap as Roode laughs over him. He picks up the All-American linebacker and sets him for the new "Roode Awakening" as the crowd boos in disbelief. All of a sudden the crowd pops as we see too men run down on the entrance ramp and we see it's Shelton Benjamin and Jake Hager. Roode releases Laurinaitis and jumps off the ramp and escapes to the backstage area. Shelton and Jake check on Laurinaitis, as James shake it off, the two raises his arm in victory. The three All-Americans stand proud to the mighty roar of the arena filled with Buckeye fans.
Winner-No Contest in 6:22
(We go backstage and see Jeff Hardy getting ready in the locker room when his brother, Matt walks in)
Jeff: "Hey man, I saw your match earlier, are you alright, That was a tough loss?"
Matt:"Aren't you the master of the obvious huh. Of course it was tough, I had Morrison beat but for some reason it slipped right out of my hands."
Jeff: "Don't worry bro, you will get him next time. You had him beat, you just need to follow through next time. I would like to stay here and talk about it but my match is next"
Matt: "Yeah, I'm okay, don't worry about. Go out there and bring the WWE Championship home."
(The two brothers hug as Matt stares at Jeff as he leaves. When Jeff shuts the door, Matt punches the locker, leaving a might dent before someone else knocks and comes in and we see CM Punk)
Punk: "Everything alright Matt?"
Matt: "If you were looking for Jeff, he just left?"
Punk:"Well, actually I was coming to talk to you."
(Matt heads pops up as Punk sits down next him as we go to commercial break)
(We come back as Jillian is ready for the main event. They all make the way to the rings as the crowd gives good pops to Batista, Punk and Hardy as well as solid heat to Orton. The four man stare each other down as Flair calls for the bell)
Main Event for the WWE Heavyweight Title
Many fans thought Orton will be at a severe disadvantage, facing three crowd favorites as well as Flair being the referee but they were shocked as Punk went after Hardy instead. As Punk controlled Hardy, Orton caught Batista a DDT taking control. The two seemed in sync as Punk and Orton double clotheslined Batista over the top and turned their attention to Hardy. Hardy was viciously double-teamed until the Punk and Orton argued over a pin attempt after a double suplex. Hardy took advantage as he took Punk over with a cross body splash, spilling both out of the ring. Orton looked on at the two and turned around right into a Spine buster by Batista. The crowd went wild but Orton kicked out at two and a half. Batista was on a roll now as he threw Orton around the ring like a rag doll as Hardy and Punk fought on the outside. Things between the two got really intense after Hardy did a suicide dive off the ring steps and took both of them over the guardrail and into the the crowd. The crowd goes crazy as the two fight up the stands, leaving Batista and Orton alone in the ring. Batista whips Orton into the ropes and catches him with a bone shattering spear and signals for the Batista Bomb. He waits patiently as Orton gets to his feet and pulls him into position as the crowd and Flair goes crazy. Before he can cinch it in, Batista falls to the ground unexpectedly as we Flair on his knees as he just delivered a low blow to Dave. Orton pounces on Batista as Flair gives a fast 3 count.
Winner and WWE Heavyweight Champion in 10:11
(The crowd and Batista is in total shock as Flair hands the belt to Orton and the two hug. Music hits and on the ramp we see Edge and Angelina Love appear and applaud the two. Batista gets up and is frenzied as Flair and Orton escapes up the ramp. The foursome stare down at the betrayed "Animal" as Edge and Orton hold up their titles as we go off the air)
