JR: Well after the break we get the action underway as Tony Mamaluke takes on Justin Credible
Match 1: Singles Match
Participants: Tony Mamaluke vs Justin Credible
Mamaluke worked on any body part of Credibles he could, especially the left arm. After every move Mamaluke hit he would turn it into a submission. Credible finally managed a counter and rolled quickly out of the ring. Credible caustiously got back in the ring and hit Mamaluke with a cheap shot. Credible smirked as the crowd booed him. Credible dropped knee to Mamalukes head then covered him 1---2-- kick out by Mamaluke. Credible whipped Mamaluke to the ropes and scoop slammed him on the return. Another cover, another 2. Credible put Mamaluke in the corner and tried to chop away, but Mamaluke came back with chops and rights of his own. It soon turned into and all out slugfest which got the crowd on their feet cheering. Eventually Mamaluke dropkicked Credible down and then went for a cover. 1---2-- kick out by Credible. Mamaluke goes for another armbar but it gets countered into a sideslam. Credible then goes to hit the X-Mark but Mamaluke catches his leg, trips him down, turns him over into a stretch muffler, then sits downa nd locks in the Sicilian Crab! Credible almost immediatley taps as Mamaluke celebrates through the crowd.
Match Time: 10m 57s
WINNER: Tony Mamaluke via Submission
JR: What a great way to open up one of the biggest Explosions ever, with Mamaluke making Credible tap out to the Sicilian Crab!
King: Thats a good win for Mamaluke, and hes gonna need all the practice he can get to last 2 minutes with Hulk Hogan at the Rumble in 2 weeks!
JR: Yeah but Mamaluke is a skilled in ring wrestler, hes great on the mat. Well I understand that Roger Walker is now backstage with the Natural Born Thrillers!
Yes JR I am indeed standing by with the Natural Born Thrillers, all 7 of them, as Johnny Stamboli seems to be back in the game after a brief contract dispute with management, and well I not sure who to ask this question to as I do not know who the leader is so which 2 men have been chosen to represent your group in the 4 team tag tonight?
Well we had a ballot which I won, thus I am the leader, thus you must ask me the questions from now on. But onto the question you just asked, Mike Sanders and Shawn Stasiak have been chosen to represent in the main event tonight.
I see, will anyone else play a factor in this match?
No we have agreed that Mike and Shawn dont need our help to win, they are already good enough to beat anyone in this entire locker room so interference is not on our cards.
Well gentlemen thank you for your time and good luck.
Roger exits the NBT dressing room.
JR: So it will be Mike Sanders and Shawn Stasiak vs Hardyz vs Dudleyz vs DOA tonight in our main event, with the first team to score a pinfall or submission will go on to face the tag champ the New Age Outlaws at the Royal Rumble, but after the break we get some Lightweight tag team action, see you then.
Match 2: Tag Team Match
Participants: Juventud Guerrera & La Parka vs Jerry Lynn & Psicosis
Guerrera starts with Lynn. Guerrera gets the upperhand in every situation. Lynn, the veteran, stares blankly at Guerrera as he tags out, annoyed and in shock that he could not get a single move on Guerrera. Psicosis steps in and has his head taken off by a wheel kick. He gets up and Juvi dropsaults him then drops a running elbow. Cover 1----2--- kick out by Psicosis. Juvi takes Psicosis to his corner and chops away before tagging in La Parka. Parka snap suplexes Psicosis and holds the lock in for a cover which is broken up by Lynn. Parka whips Psicosis to the ropes and goes for a diving clothesline but Psicosis has it scouted and ducks, sending Parka through the ropes to the outside. Psicosis instinctivley distracts the referee as Lynn gets some cheap shots in on Parka including whipping him into the steel steps. Lynn rolls Parka in the ring. Psicosis instantly pins La Parka 1----2----no! Kick out just in the nick of time by La Parka. He looks in pain, holding his back. Psicosis back suplexes Parka then holds him in position and tags in Lynn. The veteran drops repeated elbows to the chest of Parka and covers him only to have Juvi break it up. Lynn then whips Parka to the ropes but Parka comes off the ropes and nails a hurricanrana followed by some armdrags and a DDT. Lynn is down and Parka struggles to get up. Parka almost makes the tag to Juvi but Lynn grabs him by the foot and drags him back into the center of the ring. Parka goes for an enziguri but Lynn ducks. Parka then uses his held foot and hits Lynn with a sensational kick. Both men down. Crowd claps Parka to his feet. He gets up, Lynn tags in Psicosis. Psicosis goes for Parka who dives and tags in Juvi. Juvi goes to work on Psicosis with a flurry of chops, kicks and rights. Juvi whips Psicosis to the ropes but Psicosis reverses, only to have Juvi shoulder tackle Psicosis down. Juvi gets up and turns around, as off the top rope comes Lynn with a huge flying cross body. Lynn gets up and turns around to have La Parka missile dropkick him from the top rope. Juvi slams Psicosis and goes to the top rope, but Lynn runs up and enziguri's Juvi off the top to the floor! HOLY SHIT! chants circle around the Arrowhead Pond. La Parka hits a reverse DDT on Psicosis but turns around into a kick to the gut from Jerry Lynn. Lynn hoists him up and drops him with the cradle piledriver. Psicosis shakes the cobwebs loose and puts an outstretched hand over La Parkas motionless body. Lynn knocks Juvi off the apron as the ref counts the fall in the ring 1----------2------------3!

Carlito takes a crunch of his apple then spits it in Heymans face.
Heyman wipes the apple of his face. Carlito goes to exit the room.
Heyman- Um Carlito on second thought you wont face Rey Mysterio, no no instead you will face Big Daddy Cool, DIESEL!
Carlito turns around with a shock look on his face.

Heyman- Sorry Carlito, you had your chance and you blew it out your mouth, literally!
Carlito is sorry please reconsider.
Heyman- NO WAY! O and Carlito, now that, thats COOL!
Carlito walks out of Heymans office looking very angry and afraid.
JR: Well it looks like that time Carlito bit off a bit more than he could chew!

Haas continues to mug Shelton while hes down. Haas rolls out of the ring and grabs a steel chair. He slides it into the ring and hits Shelton square on the head with it. Shelton is bleeding pretty badly. Haas then puts Shelton in the Haas of Pain just like on Full Throttle and after a ton of refs and officials run in and seperate Haas from Benjamin, he lets go, knowing the damage is already done. Shelton holds his left leg and his head in pain as he is stretchered out by 2 officials. Haas though isnt finished and attacks Shelton as he is on his way up the ramp. He hits both the officials with the chair then hits Benjamin in the ribs, then pushes the stretcher with Shelton on it off the stage crashing through the tables and equipment below! The crowd are silenced. Haas taunts and points to himself saying he is the man, the crowd boo him as EMT's rush down to attend to an out cold Shelton Benjamin.
JR: O my god we need some more EMT's and medics down here, Shelton was just pushed of the stage through a couple of tables among other things!
King: Well Im not a fan of Benjamins but that was just sick from Charlie Haas, whats gotten in to him lately, that was just uncalled for.
JR: It sure was, I think Haas never wants to see Shelton wrestle again.
King: Well he may have gotten his wish then JR, Shelton is still yet to move.
The camera pans around the arena, showing the faces of the fans, some are standing in shock, some are sad, some are crying.
