Re: Be the Booker Showcase Thread
Wrote this portion of a PPV a few months back for a former BTB I was in but never got around to posting this, which I think it was actually pretty OK, although never finished entirely. :PWe cut to the ring where Tony Chimel is standing by as the bell tolls.
Tony Chimel: Ladies and gentlemen … the following contest is scheduled for one fall and is for the Women’s Championship!
“Glamazon” hits the speakers as ‘The Glamazon’ Beth Phoenix steps out onto the stage to a small amount of booing. Phoenix taunts and then heads down towards the ring.
Tony Chimel: Introducing first … from Buffalo, New York … she is the challenger … ‘The Glamazon’ Beth Phoenix!!!
Phoenix grabs the bottom rope and pulls herself onto the ring apron before taunting and then entering the ring. She circles the ring, awaiting the Women’s Champion. “Paparazzi” hits and the crowd begin cheering as the Women’s Champion, along with the numerous paparazzi photographers, steps out onto the stage.
Tony Chimel: And her opponent … from Los Angeles, California … she is the WWE Women’s Champion … Melina!!!
Melina continues to make her way down towards the ring, adoring the fans cheering and the photographers, taunting with her Women’s Championship as Phoenix looks on. Melina reaches the ringside area, makes her way up the steel steps, and onto the ring apron. She turns her back towards Phoenix as she taunts for the paparazzi one last time before she does her signature split but PHOENIX RUNS TOWARDS MELINA AND FORCEFULLY THROWS HER OFF THE APRON~!!
The crowd’s excitement turns into boos as Melina falls face first onto the arena floor as Phoenix hurriedly exits the ring. Phoenix stomps down on Melina repetitively as the little kids at ringside scream at Phoenix while the paparazzi people run away. Phoenix lifts Melina up and crashes her into the fan barricade, with her ribs taking the damage. Phoenix continues to stomp away at Melina as the referee tries to intervene and stop the brutal attack as he screams for her to get in the ring and start the match.
Phoenix forces Melina to her feet by pulling her hair. She throws Melina right into the steel ring post on the outside before pulling her by the hair over towards the announce tables. Phoenix rams Melina’s head into the RAW announce table and then shoves her into the ring. The referee has no choice but to call for the bell.
Melina © vs. Beth Phoenix
Phoenix enters the ring and we are finally underway. Melina is still lying on the ring mat, with her extra entrance fur jacket still on, recovering from Phoenix’s brutal pre-match attack. Phoenix stands above Melina, taunting her, and proceeds to literally rip her fur jacket off of her. Phoenix then grabs hold of the Women’s Championship and gazes at it before laying it in the ring corner.
Phoenix lifts Melina up and shoves her into the nearby ring corner. Phoenix proceeds to ram Melina’s ribs into the ring post over and over until the referee warns her to back off. Phoenix backs away from Melina but Melina just falls to the ring mat. Phoenix gets out of the ring, grabs a microphone, and then re-enters the ring. She stands over Melina and raises the microphone to her lips…
Beth Phoenix: Is this what you wanted, Melina!? I gave you a warning two weeks ago to not cross my bad side! And last week, I gave you one more chance but you decided to attack me! And tonight Melina, I’m gonna make you pay for it!
Phoenix throws the microphone on the mat and then goes for the pin. 1 … … 2 … … Melina actually kicked out!! Phoenix cannot believe it! Phoenix lifts Melina up and locks her into the overhead Gutwrench backbreaker rack! Melina is screaming out in pain as loud as she ever has! Phoenix finally let’s go of Melina and throws her down to the mat. Phoenix has a twisted look in her eye and then proceeds to ram her foot right into Melina’s ribs, the force of the kick flipped Melina over onto her belly! The referee gets in Phoenix’s way and tells her to back away, the referee checks on Melina and then quickly gets to his feet and yells for medics.
Numerous medics come running out from the backstage area as the referee screams for the timekeeper to ring the bell.
Phoenix stares on with that twisted look still across her face as a few medics roll out a stretcher. A few noticeable road agents such as Arn Anderson, Dean Malenko, and Pat Patterson run out towards the ring and aid the medics by putting Melina onto the stretcher. The referee tells Phoenix to stay away from Melina as the medics strap Melina onto the stretcher. After a moment of all the medics and the road agents talking amongst themselves they begin rolling Melina up the ramp as the crowd applauds her.
Jim Ross: This is just wrong on all levels, folks. Melina could be seriously injured right now and Beth Phoenix doesn’t give a damn. She could have broken ribs for Gods sake.
Todd Grisham: Nobody said the WWE would be easy, J.R.-
Jim Ross: To hell with that, Todd, that woman is injured and Beth Phoenix had full responsibility.
We cut away as a video package begins.

We return to Bragging Rights in Team SmackDown’s backstage locker room. Batista and Rey Mysterio are talking amongst themselves while Kane stands across from them, trying to be his usual menacing self. Suddenly, Big Show and Chris Jericho walk into the room and everything becomes silent as Mysterio, Kane, and Batista stare on at the Unified Tag Team Champions.
Chris Jericho: Gentlemen, tonight is the night. It’s the night that we’re going to prove that SmackDown is the superior brand within the WWE and the most dominate force in sports entertainment thanks to yours truly. I built this team from the ground over the last few weeks and I am proud to say that I have a team worthy of standing by my side. All of those degenerates and leach worms on Team RAW will know that we mean business when we beat them tonight. Let me just tell all of you one thing, if you get in my way tonight, you will pay. I am the best this team has to offer alongside ‘Show and we will be the ones to lead this team to victory.
Batista laughs to himself as Jericho turns his attention to him.
Chris Jericho: What are you laughing at?
Batista: You. I’ve been stuck listening to you say the same stuff week in and week out. Lemme tell ya’, ‘captain’, I really don’t give a damn if anybody on Team RAW eliminates you because they’ll be doing us a favor … but, if it needs to be, I’ll be the sole survivor tonight and I will lead this team to victory, and I’ll prove that SmackDown is better than RAW.
Jericho stares intently at ‘The Animal’ with a look of anger in his eyes until Kane steps in front of Batista and locks eyes with him.
Kane: You’re funny, Batista. There’s an old saying that I know … “actions speak louder than words”. And I don’t think you can do that because all of us know that I’m the most dominate force on SmackDown. I crush and demolish everything standing in my way … and if that includes you, so be it. You won’t be leading this team to victory … because I will.
Batista and Kane continue to stare at each other very closely, both men breathing hard due to their increasing anger. Rey Mysterio tries to get in between Batista and Kane and begins to speak…
Rey Mysterio: Dave, Kane, c’mon guys, no need to argue right now. We need ta’ be focused on ‘da match ta’ night because I’m gonna be ‘da one to beat Team RAW.
Kane, Mysterio, and Batista begin to argue, rather loudly, amongst one another as Jericho and Big Show look on, not knowing what to do. Total chaos erupts in the Team SmackDown locker room as Batista, Kane, and Mysterio continue to argue while Jericho screams at everybody and Big Show just stands there doing nothing. Suddenly, we hear the door leading to the arena hallway open and everyone becomes silent. All five men stare at something, or someone, out of the camera’s view. Suddenly, the person’s boots come into the camera’s view. It’s a basic black pair of wrestling boots, with “AD” in white text engraved in the side of the boots. The camera then focuses on the members of Team SmackDown as Jericho begins to speak…
Chris Jericho: Gentlemen, allow me to introduce to you the sixth member of Team SmackDown.
We cut away as another video package begins.
The screen is black. Suddenly, white italic text reading “Summerslam | 8.23.09” pops up before we see a clip of Jeff Hardy, the World Heavyweight Champion at the time, standing across from the challenger at that time CM Punk.
We fast-forward to the ending of the match where CM Punk is celebrating with his newly-won World Heavyweight Championship as his music blares in the background. Suddenly, we are taken back to that very moment as we see the lights cut off.
Narrator: ...It was the night…
We see a clip where the lights had cut back on to see THE UNDERTAKER lying in the spot that Jeff Hardy had been lying in as Punk stares on.
Narrator: …That he returned.
We see a clip of The Undertaker nailing a Chokeslam to the new World Heavyweight Champion. The screen returns to it’s black setting when italic white text pops up again, this time saying “SmackDown | 8.28.09”. We fast-forward and see clips of various hot moments during the Steel Cage Match between CM Punk and Jeff Hardy before we see a short clip of Hardy saying his ‘goodbye to the WWE Universe for now’.
Narrator: …It was … time … for the Demon of Death Valley … to reclaim the World Heavyweight Championship…
The screen is black once again as “Breaking Point | 9.13.09” pops up into view. We see a clip of CM Punk and The Undertaker standing across the ring from one another before we see fast-paced clips all throughout the match. Finally, we see Theodore Long come out onto the stage and declare the match to be restarted before we see what is now known as ‘The 2nd Screwjob’. We see Undertaker staring intently at the fleeing CM Punk as the screen fades to black again. We return with a clip of The Undertaker abducting Theodore Long on the SmackDown after Breaking Point before the screen fades to black again…

“Hell in a Cell | 10.4.09” pops up on the screen before we see a clip of The Undertaker taunting with the World Heavyweight Championship after his victory over CM Punk.

We then see various clips of the various ‘mind games’ The Undertaker played on the former champion in a fast-paced manner as a church-type production theme plays in the background.
Narrator: Tonight … it is all on the line. The Demon of Death Valley … The Straightedge Superstar … … … who will … walk out … champion.
We cut to the arena where we see RAW General Manager Eric Bischoff and SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long sitting at ringside. We see a trophy sitting in between them.
Jim Ross: It is finally time, folks! Both General Managers are sitting here at ringside to see which brand will have the ‘bragging rights’ once it’s all said and done! And as you can see, folks, a trophy will be given to the winning team as they leave with the ‘bragging rights’.
Jerry Lawler: No offense towards you J.R., but RAW is the A-show and Team RAW will prove it right now! And tonight, Theodore Long is gonna lose his job!
Jim Ross: It’s in your dreams, King; Team SmackDown is going home tonight victorious. Let’s take it to Howard Finkel for the introductions…
We cut to the ring where WWE Hall of Famer and former ring announcer Howard Finkel is standing in the center of the ring with a microphone in hand.
Howard Finkel: Ladies and gentlemen … it is now time for the first ever six on six RAW versus SmackDown Elimination Tag Team Match!!! Now in this match, it will continue until one team has been entirely eliminated and the winning team will leave tonight with the ‘bragging rights’! If Team SmackDown loses, General Manager Theodore Long will be fired!
“Break It Down” blasts through the PA system as the crowd hysterically jump to their feet and go wild!! Team RAW comes running out onto the stage, playing to the crowd and living up the moment, except for Jack Swagger, who has a sour look spread across his face. Kingston, MVP, and DX continue to play to the crowd while Swagger just walks down the ramp with the sour look still across his face.
Howard Finkel: Introducing first … making their way to the ring … representing Monday Night RAW … the team of D-Generation X, Kofi Kingston, ‘The All American American’ Jack Swagger, and M – V – P!!!
The members of Team RAW, except the bitter Jack Swagger, continue to head down the ramp, high-fiving fans at ringside before entering the ring.
Jerry Lawler: Look at Team RAW, Michael! The crappy team SmackDown put together doesn’t even measure up to ‘em!
D-Generation X’s music dies down but the crowd is still red hot! The crowd continues to chant “DX! DX! DX!” while Team RAW taunt. The crowd finally calms down as Triple H and Shawn Michaels both receive microphones.
Triple H: Pittsburgh … … are you ready?
The crowd pops for DX.
Triple H: I know you can do better than that, c’mon! Pittsburgh … … … I said ARE YOU RRRREEEEAAAADDDYYYYY!?!?!?
The crowd erupts into cheers while DX continue to play to the crowd.
Triple H: We are finally here! We are finally at Bragging Rights! I mean, this whole RAW versus SmackDown vendetta has been going on week in and week out … well … three weeks actually, but that’s not the point! We’ve seen Qualifying Matches, we’ve seen Chris Jericho talking trash every chance he gets, we’ve seen us get the upper hand, we’ve seen SmackDown get the upper hand, we’ve seen Kane and Batista forming an “I’m a big man hear me roar” alliance, we’ve seen Swagger be the All American Loser, we’ve seen brawls, we’ve seen fights, we’ve seen me getting powerbombed on top of a car, we’ve seen Shawn putting Jericho through a table, we’ve seen everything for the past three weeks! And it comes down to this match here tonight because we know it, you know it, ‘Vintage’ Michael Cole knows it … we are leaving tonight with the ‘bragging rights’!
The crowd pops for Team RAW. Hunter grins and then begins to speak again…
Triple H: Moving on … everybody has been asking us all the way up to now who our mystery partner is. They’ve asked who we have in store. Who could possibly be a part of Team RAW? Ladies and gentlemen … children of all ages … our partner is here tonight … and please allow me to introduce him to all of you. Ladies and gentlemen … the sixth member of Team RAW…
“Badass” by Shiftkit hits the PA system as the debuting Nigel McGuinness, wearing a leather coat and a pair of red trunks, heads out of the curtain and onto the stage to a small face reaction from the crowd. Nigel raises his left arm in the air as some form of taunt before heading down the ramp and into the ring. The music dies down as Nigel stands alongside the other members of Team RAW. Shawn walks over to him and gives him a microphone.
Nigel McGuinness: You may not know me yet but you shall soon. My name is Nigel McGuinness. Although you may not know this, I’ve worked all throughout the world for eleven years to make it to tha’ WWE. I worked in every promotion that was around. I’ve been a World Champion numerous times. I’ve held gold around my waist more than you can imagine. And it’s because I’m that damn good. You see; I’ve finally made it to tha’ WWE after years of being the best everywhere else. And tonight starts a new chapter in my life. Tonight starts my reign at the top of the industry. And my first step is to destroy the pukes that are on Team SmackDown. And after I accomplish that, it will only be a matter of time until I become the World Champion…
The crowd pops for McGuinness as he hands the microphone back to Shawn. Triple H smirks and then begins to speak…
Triple H: Well with that in mind, I think we should wrap this promo up … everybody get in position. Nigel, you don’t have to because you’re new around here.
Hunter, Shawn, Kingston, and MVP crouch down into position while McGuinness stares on. Swagger just stands there, doing nothing but sulking.
Triple H: Now … for the thousands in attendance … for the millions watching at home only on pay-per-view … and for Team SmackDown because, well, we’re about to kick their asses … … … LLLLEEEEETTTTTT’SSS GEEEETTT REAAADDDYYY TO SUCK ITTTTTTT!!!
The crowd goes wild and cheer along with Triple H. Hunter looks over at Swagger and points towards him. Swagger notices Hunter pointing at him and he doesn’t look happy. Shawn walks over to him and gives him the microphone. Team RAW waits but Swagger doesn’t do anything. Shawn walks back up to Swagger and whispers in his ear but Swagger tosses the microphone back into Shawn’s hand. Shawn shrugs and starts speaking…
Shawn Michaels: … And if you’re not down with that, we’ve got two words for ya’!!!
Right when the crowd gets their cue “Crank The Walls Down” interrupts them as it blasts through the PA system. The Unified Tag Team Champions Chris Jericho and Big Show head out onto the stage alongside Rey Mysterio, Batista, and Kane while Team RAW look on.
Howard Finkel: And their opponents … representing Friday Night SmackDown … the team of the WWE Unified Tag Team Champions Chris Jericho and the Big Show, Rey Mysterio, ‘The Animal’ Batista, and ‘The Big Red Monster’ Kane!!!
The members of Team SmackDown continue to make their way down the ramp before entering the ring and coming face to face with Team RAW as JeriShow’s music dies down.
Chris Jericho: You know what, DX!? I’m tired of this idiotic nonsense! Your entire team consists of hypocrites, degenerates, and leach worms! I’ve got two words of my own for ya’ … … RAW SUCKS!!!
The pro-RAW fans boo Jericho while all the members of Team RAW, except Jack Swagger, grin at Jericho’s words.
Chris Jericho: And ya’ know what else I have, DX, not only do I already have a team worthy of standing by my side but my mystery partner is a thousand times better than that little punk. My mystery partner is also a former World Champion, he holds gold wherever he goes, and maybe one day he’ll leave this ring with the legacy that yours truly holds. Now that I think about it, both Nigel and Shawn know this man very closely. So allow me to introduce the sixth member of Team SmackDown…
“Love and War” by Drowning Pool hits the speakers in the arena as the debuting Bryan Danielson, wearing the same boots as earlier with a more semi-colored pair of trunks, steps out through the curtain and onto the stage. The camera spots the other newcomer McGuinness staring directly at Danielson with a mere look of anger in his eyes but we cut away back to Danielson as he makes his way down the ramp.
Jim Ross: That—that’s Bryan Danielson … ‘The American Dragon’! That young man is one of the best in the world today!
Jerry Lawler: And if I’m correct J.R., he has battled Nigel McGuinness all over the world for the past few years! And Shawn Michaels trained him!
Jim Ross: I thought I would never say this, folks, but this match just went up another level! This match is even more personal! It’s gonna be trainer versus trainee, enemy versus enemy!
Jerry Lawler: It sure did, J.R., but Team RAW also has a sixth member and his name is Nigel McGuinness! Don’t think that he’s going to go down without a fight, J.R.!
Danielson high-fives some fans at ringside and then enters the ring and stands alongside Team SmackDown. Danielson and McGuinness lock eyes and both step face-to-face as the music dies down. Danielson and McGuinness trade words until both men’s team captains bring them towards their respective corners. Danielson and McGuinness continue to gaze at one another as they exit the ring and get on the outside.
