24th May 2004
A video clip of Austin’s return is shown and then cuts backstage and we see Stone Cold walking into the arena and the crowd erupts as it fades into the opening video but as RAW stretches from the screen Evolution’s theme hits but only Triple H comes down to the ring. H gets in and gets the mic with a huge amount of heat.
Last week, we all saw the return of the ‘great’ Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Austin, you know what? I was kind of starting to miss your pain in the ass bald head and bad mouthing everyone you saw, but I was just starting. You coming back last week reminded me of how much I hate you.
The crowd gives major heat to H after his last statement
Austin, I know you’re here, I saw you arrive on the monitor backstage, so what I’m saying Austin I want your ass in this ring right now……
The crowd erupts but Shawn’s music hits instead, Shawn comes out and stands on the stage with a mic
Hunter, you and me have so much unfinished business it’s not funny, but that’s beside the point. Last week Austin not only Stunnered you, he did it to me to, Steve, I know we’ve been friends for a long time, but you see…… I’m with Hunter; I’m not leaving this arena till you get your ass in that ring and I get my revenge…….
Triple H looks shocked, so does the crowd but they erupt anyways
‘I’m Back’ fills the arena and Bischoff walks out on stage to huge amount of heat, Shawn walks down the ramp further so he’s between Triple H and Eric.
Hunter, Shawn, how you doing? I been listening to you two bicker backstage over Austin and I’ve come to a great solution, it will be Shawn Michaels versus Triple H right here on RAW tonight, and the winner, will face Stone Cold at Bad Blood…..
The crowd almost lifts the roof off the arena as Shawn smiles and Triple H looks pissed
That’s not my only announcement for tonight, also, later on tonight, I’m going to have a very special gift to Stone Cold Steve Austin and I will deliver it to him right there in that ring tonight.
Bischoff smiles and the crowd boos but Triple H and Shawn have their eyes locked as we fade to a commercial.
Ladies and Gentlemen welcome back to RAW, we’re live from ….. Tonight and what major announcements we’ve had for tonight King.
oh your so right JR, Shawn Michaels and Triple H, here tonight….. on RAW, sorry to steal this from you Tazz but this is going to be a Rocket Buster of a night.
Your right there King, also tonight we’ve been told it will be Shelton Benjamin and Edge facing Randy Orton and Batista in a Tag match tonight. Also Chris Beniot goes up against Rhyno and Gail Kim faces Victoria for the WWE Women’s Championship, there’ll be chaos everywhere tonight King, I can guarantee you of that.
I have to agree with you there JR, this will be a RAW for the ages.
Gail Kim’s music hits and fills the arena
Guess what time it is JR…………. Puppy time!!!!!
WWE Women’s Championship
Gail Kim vs. Victoria
Victoria wins with the Widow’s Peak
Winner – Victoria – Pinfall
It cuts backstage and we see Beniot barge into Bischoff’s office and grab him by the jacket
Bischoff, you gave Shawn and Hunter a chance of facing Austin at Bad Blood, last week he Stunnered me, and nothing would please me more than to make him tap of to the Crossface…….
Beniot lets go of Bischoff and walks out.
We go back to JR and King sitting at the announce table.
A great match by those two young ladies but Victoria came out on top King.
oh my God! Did you just say Victoria came out on top…… oh I could only imagine……
Your sick King, are you that lonely?
We go backstage again and see Bischoff telling Johnny Nitro to tell production he has an announcement to make right after the next match.
Chris Beniot vs. Rhyno
An really good match, Rhyno gets out of the Crossface a couple of times before he misses with the Gore and Beniot hits the SwanDive for the win
Winner – Chris Beniot – Pinfall
What a great match that was King, Rhyno really proved himself to me here tonight
Your right JR, a fantastic match, Rhyno showed he belongs here on RAW.
WWE Smackdown Rebound
- Shows Tazz joining The Paul Heyman Revolution and his attack on Michael Cole
- Shows the highlights of the match with John Cena facing both Torrie and Depuree and pulling out the victory.
- Shows Mordecai choking Spike and him being taken to the hospital.
- Shows Booker T attacking Undertaker and Paul Bearer with double Axe Kick's and Running away with the Urn.
We go backstage and see Bischoff walking down a hallway until Edge comes up to him and pins him against the wall.
Since you’re in the giving out mood, I want Austin next week on RAW, I don’t like being Stunnered for no apparent reason, either you make the match or you will pay….
Edge then walks off and Eric watches him before he starts walking again and then turns the corner and Tajiri is standing there.
I suppose you want Austin to, don’t you?
Tajiri’s eyes open and he shakes his head really fast, Bischoff just rolls his eyes and keeps walking.
We go back to JR and King at the announce table.
JR: Smackdown was great last week King, I cant till Undertaker puts Booker T in his place at the Great American Bash.
Jerry Lawler: I'm not too sure JR, Booker T now has the Undertaker's Urn, this could be a huge advantage for Booker..... But we all know Smackdown is the second rate show.
The commercial for Bad Blood then shows, saying bought to you by Subway; Eat Fresh before Bischoff’s music hits and he walks his way down to the ring and gets a mic.
Tonight I’ve been fronted by a heap of people in the back saying they want Stone Cold Steve Austin in a match, but I’ve had more important things to take care of, if my apprentice would please bring my present down to the ring and if Stone Cold Steve Austin would like to come down to the ring I have a gift for him.
Nitro walks down and then Austin’s music hits and he comes down to the ring and does his traditional turnbuckle walk and pose before getting the mic.
Eric Bischoff (what?) I hate your little son of a bitch ass, I hate your beady little eyes and most of all I hate the sound of your whiny little voice you little piece of crap!
The crowd erupts as Bischoff looks in the brief case and fiddles around
You know what Austin, I’ve got a present for you, and I think you will really like it, because I hate you as much, or even more than you hate me and I will be dead and buried before I so much as let you near that World Heavyweight title….. ah! Here it is…..
Bischoff then pulls his hand out of the brief case and gives Austin the finger, Austin looks to the crowd and then Stunners Eric and the crowd erupts. Austin then signals for beer and pours it on Eric Bischoff before going back to King and JR.
A bold announcement by Eric Bischoff there King, Austin will never hold the World Heavyweight Championship King.
That was a bold statement JR, saying he will NEVER hold it, kind of reminds you of old WCW day’s don’t it JR?
Sure does King, we’ve just been told Rhyno has asked for some interview time.
The camera cuts backstage and we see Rhyno standing there
Chris Beniot, I almost had you tonight, I almost beat the Worlds Heavyweight Champion in his ring. I demand a re-match next week on RAW and here’s something for you to think about Chris, if I win, when I win….. I get a shot at the Worlds Heavyweight Championship at Bad Blood……….
Welcome back to RAW ladies and gentlemen, incase you’ve just joined us it will be Triple H versus Shawn Michaels and the winner gets Stone Cold Steve Austin at Bad Blood, also Christian versus Kane still to come….
Shawn Michaels versus Triple H, here on RAW, tonight…. It’s gonna be great, I still can’t believe Christian has to face Kane tonight……. But hey, at least we get to see Trish.
We go backstage and see Trish getting a cup o’ coffee and then comes in the V.I.P.
Do Not Move, for I am Rosey………….. V.I.P, and I am here to take you hostage and use you for ransom so the world will give me all power and authority and I shall rule it and everyone on it.
Trish tries to walk away, but Rosey stands in front of her and blocks her way, Trish tries to walk around but he stands in front of him again, Trish looks up at him and smiles
You know what Rosey? I like a man who put his foot down to a woman and voices his authority; I think you and me can be very good together.
Trish moves closer to Rosey and looks like she is going to kiss him but knee’s him in the nuts, Hurricane ‘fly’s’ in and looks and Trish in Rosey.
You mean you took down and dastly Rosey? Wat-up-wit-dat?
Trish walks towards Hurricane and then knees him in the balls and walks off leaving them both down on the floor rolling around.
Kane vs. Christian w/ Trish Stratus
A quick match with Kane Chokeslamming Christian
Winner – Kane – Pinfall
After the match Matt Hardy runs down to the ring and attacks Kane with a chair and continues to do so before knocking him down and getting a table out from under the ring, Matt gets another chair and beats up Kane some more before setting up the table. Kane sits up and Matt tries to hit him again but Kane deflects it and Tombstones him before getting back up and signaling the cut throat. Kane picks Matt up again and hits his old Flowing Powerbomb through the table before raising hell fire from the ring posts.
Oh my God King, Eric Bischoff has signed Matt Hardy’s death warrant for Bad Blood, this will be a massacre.
We come back and see Chris Jericho walking backstage and then A-Train comes face to face with him standing in front so he has to look him in the eye. A-Train smiles and walks off leaving Jericho puzzled.
What the hell was that about King? A-Train walked right up to Jericho, laughed in his face a kept going, what’s that about?
How the hell am I supposed to know JR? You’re the one that knows everything…… but what I do know is Shelton Benjamin and Edge and up against Evolution members Batista and Randy Orton…… as a matter of fact JR, it’s up right now
Evolution’s music hits and the next match is about to start
Shelton Benjamin/ Edge vs. Evolution (Batista/ Randy Orton)
Orton picks up the win after the RKO’s Edge
Winners – Evolution (Batista/ Randy Orton) – Pinfall
Evolution continue their beat down on Shelton and Edge until Chris Beniot runs down the ring and they all start slugging it out until Rhyno runs down and Gores Beniot before leaving and giving Evolution what’s left as we fade to the last commercial break.
Welcome back ladies and gentlemen, up next we have our main event Shawn Michaels versus Triple H, and what a showdown that will be King…
Say it JR, Saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay it…….
Alright King, it’ll be a Slobberknocker
There we go JR, didn’t that feel good?
King, you’ve got to get out more, I swear….
Shawn Michaels music hits and the crowd erupts as he makes his way down to the ring
Singles – Winner faces Stone Cold Steve Austin at Bad Blood
Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H
An excellent till Shawn and H both get counted out after Shawn slingshots Triple H into the post.
Winner – No decision – No decision
After the match Austin’s glass shatters and he comes down the ring and throws Shawn and H back into the ring before getting a chair and slamming Triple and Shawn in the head before picking them back up and Stunnering them to a huge pop. Bischoff then walks out on stage to a chorus of boos.
Austin, I’ve had everyone up my ass saying they want to face you and I’m sick of it, so what’s happening next week is…… The Stone Cold Gauntlet, I hope you enjoy it.
Austin signals bring it as we fade off the air.
