Re: Being The Booker - TheGreatOne08
On Holiday so havn't really been up to date with what's going on, this is a shortish Raw using a notepad + pen. As you can see I am ahead of schedule so the next Raw will be posted on August 2nd. As always opinions and SummerSlam predictions are welcome.
Raw – July 26th
The show kicks off with footage of Chris Benoit being pinned by Kane as a result of a ‘screwjob’ by the Special Guest Referee, Triple H.
Pyro goes off around the arena
J.R – We are in the sold out, American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida for Monday Night Raw. Jim Ross alongside Jerry “The King” Lawler and King, what a wild night it was last week, as Kane got a pinfall victory over The World Heavyweight Champion Chris Benoit.
King – That’s right J.R, but what a clever man Triple H is! He had Benoit wrapped around his little Finger.
J.R– King, The Game was sent out there to do a Job…
King- Correct! He was told to do a ‘Job’ and he did that ‘Job.’
J.R- Triple H was supposed to referee a match, but instead he thought of himself, as he always does and decided to screw Chris Benoit out of an obvious victory, For God’s sake, Kane was tapping from the Crippler Crossface.
King – However, he didn’t win the match, did he J.R?
J.R – That’s right.
Triple H’s Theme plays
J.R – Here comes the former World Heavyweight Champion, who lost the title to Benoit at WrestleMania XX
Triple H enters the Ring, ‘You Suck’ chants erupt
HHH – In the last 7 Days, people have come up to me in the Streets, in Restaurants, in Shops, virtually everywhere and have said, “Hey Hunter, Why? Why did you screw Chris Benoit last week? You were supposed to be a ref. and call the match straight down the middle. You told Benoit everything was going to be fine.” And do you know what I told them, I said to each and every one of them, I DIDN’T SCREW CHRIS BENOIT! CHRIS BENOIT SCREWED CHRIS BENOIT! You see ever since Benoit beat me for my World Heavyweight Title, there has been something missing in my life. I need to be at the top. I need to be Champion. I am The Game. So Eric, get your ass out here and give me my title shot.
Crowd boo, a pause follows
HHH – Come on Eric, I haven’t got all Year.
Chris Benoit’s Theme plays, Triple H looks mortified
J.R – There is the World Heavyweight Champion with a huge Plaster on his forehead, the result of an attack last week by the ‘Referee’ in his match against Kane, Triple H.
Benoit- So you think that you can screw with me, Triple H? Can’t take it that I have beaten you not once- not twice- but 3 TIMES? Triple H, you’re time as champion is over. I will never defend my title against you again
Crowd cheer, Benoit chants are heard. In the midst of this Kane’s music plays.
J.R – There Folks, is the man who got the pinfall victory over Chris Benoit, Kane.
King – What a partnership. Kane and Triple H tore Benoit to shreds last week.
J.R – Maybe, Benoit had to fight 2 men at the same time, and if he did he would have got Disqualified anyway. He was in a Lose/Lose situation.
Kane – You’re right Benoit, you will not have you’re next title shot against Triple H.
HHH – What are you talking about?
Kane – You will defend you’re title against me!
J.R – Oh my. What a bold statement by Kane.
HHH – Kane, I was the one who got you the victory therefore I should be challenging Chris Benoit.
Kane – You had your chances, and you blew each and every one of them.
Crowd cheer, A fuming Triple H squares up to Kane. Bischoff’s Theme plays
Eric – Hold it right there, I don’t want my Superstars fighting.
Eric – I understand both of you’re claims to challenge for The World Heavyweight Championship, And I will grant you both an opportunity to face Chris Benoit for the Title.
Triple H has a smirk on his face, Crowd boo even more.
Eric – But you see, now I come to my Big Announcement.
King – Get ready J.R!!
Eric – Triple H, the Board of Directors will not allow me to grant you another Title shot, one on one with Chris Benoit. So, I have come to a compromise. At SummerSlam the Raw Main Event will be decided in a 6 Man, Elimination Chamber Match.
Chris Benoit looks furious, Crowd don’t know whether to boo or cheer
Eric – Our first 3 competitors are, The World Heavyweight Champion, Chris Benoit.
Huge Pop for Benoit
Eric – ‘The Game’ Triple H, and The Big Red Monster, Kane. The next Superstar to be entered is a man of the utmost intelligence, he was the first Undisputed Champion, he is CHRIS JERICHO!
J.R – Wow King, Y2J has been added to the match.
Eric – And later on tonight our Main Event will feature Chris Benoit teaming up with Chris Jericho to face the team of Triple H and Kane. And I will guarantee you this, by the end of the night one more person will be added to the match, Thank You very much.
J.R – What a Main Event for SummerSlam, an Elimination Chamber match, but King did you hear what Bischoff said, one more person will be added before Raw goes off the air Tonight.
King – I heard that alright! This is going to be great.
William Regal makes his way to the ring, after that Val Venis approaches the Ring.
Val Venis starts on the offensive, with 3 punches he knocks Regal down. Venis throws Regal into the ropes and executes a Big Back Body Drop. Scoop Slam by Venis follows. Fireman’s Carry by Venis then follows it up with a Boston Crab.
Crowd get a big Regal chant going

Here is you’re winner: William Regal
Regal quickly escapes the Ring as a shocked Richards stands over the unconscious body of Val Venis
King – Did you see that J.R? Regal with the Brass Nuts!
J.R – But he didn’t bring them into the Ring, he took them off Val Venis who tried to hit him with them.
Don’t try this at Home Commercial
Coach - I’m standing here alongside the Former Intercontinental Champion Randy Orton and Randy, I am shocked- along with many other people- that the Legend Killer has been pinned Twice by someone who, I don’t even consider to be a Legend.
Orton – Coach, are you joking? That man was in the First ever Tables, Ladders and Chairs match! He has been countless times a Tag Team Champion, but I have KILLED LEGENDS. I beat the Legend of Mick Foley not only at WrestleMania but at Backlash as well, since then there has been no sign of him in the WWE. With Edge, I haven’t been beaten by a Legend. I have been beaten by a Freak!
Backstage Aid tells Orton that Bischoff wants to see him.
Orton – Excuse me, Coach.
Eric – Randy, I wanted to see you because I have something to say which concerns you. As you know, as of right now we have 4 Participants in the Elimination Chamber match at SummerSlam, but live next week on Eric Bischoff’s Monday Night Raw, we will have ourselves a 20 Man, Over The Top Rope Battle Royal in which the winner will get a spot inside that Elimination Chamber for a “once in a lifetime” opportunity alongside 5 other guys to challenge Chris Benoit for the World Heavyweight Championship.
Orton looks at Bischoff with a smile on his face. SummerSlam promos air
The next match is Maven v Scott Stener, both men are in the Ring.
The match starts with Maven trying to land a few punches in but Steiner turns around and Clothesline’s him flat out. He then picks him up by the throat and gives him a huge Gorrlia Press Slam, the followed by a Belly to Belly Suplex. Steiner then climbs back out of the Ring and brings a Steel Chair into the Ring but the Referee takes it back off him and back to the outside, whilst this is happening Maven gives Steiner a Low Blow. He then goes for his trademark Dropkick but Steiner moves out of the way. He then gets the Steiner Recliner locked in. Maven can’t reach the Ropes and has to tap.
Smackdown Rebound is shown with the disturbing footage at the end of the show, showing a gravestone with Brock Lesnar’s name and date of birth/death saying that he will die, at SummerSlam
