Re: The Main Event and Juvy's Rise of Glory
Highlights of last weeks Raw are shown, after the video is finished pyro begins to go off and the Raw theme begins to play throughout the arena.
Jim Ross: Welcome Ladies and Gentlemen to Monday Night Raw!! Live here from Dallas, Texas, and what a huge night we have in store for you, Ladies and Gentlemen, tonight the World Heavyweight Champion Batista puts his title on the line against the near 500-pound Big Show!!!
Jerry Lawler: That is a huge match JR; I mean literally, two of the biggest stars here on raw competing for that title, which will be huge
Jim Ross: Also in a Non Title match here, the former WWE Champion John Bradshaw Layfield will take on the WWE Intercontinental Champion Shelton Benjamin
“Longhorn” begins to play throughout the arena to huge heat from the crowd as JBL’s long white limo pulls up at the side of the stage.
Jerry Lawler: Speaking of JBL, JR, I wonder what he has to say
Jim Ross: Well JBL isn’t scheduled to compete till later on tonight
The limo driver opens the door to the limo and out from the limo appears John Bradshaw Layfield. Wearing a black suit and a white cowboy hat, JBL walks down to the ring with his usual toothy grin on his face.
Jerry Lawler: It looks like JBL is happy to be here on Raw JR
Jim Ross: Well he should be, he has a championship match at Backlash against the winner of tonight’s match between Batista and the mammoth Big Show
JBL walks up the steps and climbs into the ring then takes a microphone from Lillian Garcia and walks into the middle of the ring and stands in the middle of the ring smiling as his music stops. He points at Lillian Garcia and tells her to get into the ring, she gets into the ring with another microphone in hand, he then whispers something to her, she then nods her head.
Lillian Garcia: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome to Raw, John Bradshaw Layfield!!!!
JBL takes his cowboy hat off and raises his arms into the air smiling to huge heat from the crowd as Lillian Garcia leaves the ring. He puts his hat back on.
JBL: You see that’s the welcome I should be getting mind you, a man of my stature shouldn’t have to ask for it, but its an improvement, at least it was better than the welcome I got here in…in…
JBL walks over to the corner and asks Lillian Garcia a question.
JBL: Right here in Dallas Texas
JBL smiles as the crowd give him heat
JBL: You see I’ve heard several things backstage since my arrival here on Raw, and I want to make one thing clear to everyone in the locker room and everyone across the world, you see backstage they’ve been saying, “We’ve lost Triple H”, “We lost one of the greatest superstars in the WWE” and I’m sick to my stomach of hearing about it
JBL pauses and looks at the crowd.
JBL: I was the longest reigning WWE Champion in the last ten years, Triple H may have been a ten time World Champion but my one reign was longer than any one of his ten reigns, during my title reign I sold more pay per views than Triple H has ever done, I’ve sold out more arena’s than Triple H has been in during his entire career, lets face it, at Wrestlemania, it wasn’t sold out because of Triple H, it wasn’t sold out because of John Cena, and it sure as hell wasn’t sold out because of Dave Batista
JBL laughs as the crowd give heat again
JBL: Let’s face it, when the Raw Brand lost Triple H, they lost a mere mortal, but when they gained JBL, they gained a Wrestling GOD!!!!!
JBL looks around at the crowd as they start a JBL sucks chant
JBL: That brings me to my next point; backstage I’ve been hearing all about Batista, “Did you hear the reaction Batista got last week in Houston?” “Did you hear the reaction Dave Batista got when he arrived here in Dallas?” Let me get one thing straight for you all here, Dave Batista fits in here, I’ve heard him be called “The Animal” well Texas must feel like home to Dave Batista because Texas is like one big giant zoo!!
The crowd boo then after a minute start a “Batista” chant
JBL: Texas does not deserve to be part of America; Texas is a joke, just like Dave Batista!!!
JBL: But that’s all right because at Backlash, Batista will no longer be champion, because I guarantee…I absolutely guarantee that I will become the World Heavyweight Champion
JBL throws down the microphone as Longhorn plays throughout the arena, he then leaves the ring and heads to the back.
Jim Ross: Well it remains to be seen King if Batista will even to make it to Backlash as Champion as he defends in tonight’s main event against The Big Show!!
“Final Force” hits as La Resistance come out to the ring for their following match.
Jim Ross: The tag team titles will be defended when we come back!!
World Tag Team Championships
La Resistance vs. William Regal & Tajiri ©
A Decent tag team match with La Resistance managing to isolate Tajiri until he manages to tag in Regal.
Match Ending: Regal comes into the ring and clotheslines Conway, then Grenier. Then kicks Conway in the midsection and delivers a butterfly suplex. Tajiri comes back into the ring and tries to super kick Grenier but Grenier ducks then delivers a right hand on him. Regal covers Conway but the referee is trying to restrain Grenier who is hammering away on Tajiri. Regal breaks the pin and tries to get the referee’s attention but can’t allowing Conway to roll over and grab a hold of the Flag Pole. Conway drives the Pole into the head of Regal then throws it out of the ring. Grenier then comes away from Tajiri, the referee continues to try and remove an injured Tajiri from the ring. La Resistance take advantage and perform an illegal double team nailing the Au Revoir. Conway covers while Grenier jumps out of the ring, the referee turns around and counts the 1-2-3.
Winners: and NEW World Tag Team Champions, La Resistance!!
Jim Ross: La Resistance stealing the tag team titles from William Regal and Tajiri
Jerry Lawler: They do what it takes to win JR and as a result they won the tag team titles, congratulations to Sylvain Grenier and Robert Conway
We cut backstage to see Randy Orton walking to the ring
”Burn in my Light” plays throughout the arena to huge heat from the crowd as Randy Orton makes his way to the ring.
Jim Ross: We’re back live here on Raw, and here comes the man that has twice defeated the Undertaker, first at Wrestlemania and secondly last week on Raw in the Street Fight
Jerry Lawler: I’ll tell you what JR, I’ve been impressed with the impact that this young star, Randy Orton has made, he’s making a name for himself and I like to see that
Jim Ross: Indeed he is…
Randy Orton gets into the ring then climbs up on the turnbuckle and raises his arms into the air much to the fans dismay. He then climbs off the turnbuckle and takes a microphone then waits for his music to cut.
Randy Orton: Greatness has entered the ring!
Orton raises his hands into the air and smiles
Randy Orton: Just before Wrestlemania, I told you that I would defeat The Undertaker and end is win streak, and you people didn’t believe me, last week I told you I would defeat The Undertaker, and you didn’t believe me, but then again, you people wouldn’t know greatness if it walked right up and slapped you in the face, just like The Undertaker
Randy Orton: You know what Taker, maybe you should end your pitiful career now, because if things keep going this way for you, you aren’t going to be remembered as a man with the greatest record in Wrestlemania history, or a former WWE Champion, Undertaker you will be remembered as Randy Orton’s bitch!
The crowd start chanting, “Orton sucks”
Randy Orton: You no longer have a legacy Taker, the only time people will remember you is when they look at the list of victims on the back of their favourite Randy Orton T-Shirt!!!
The crowd give that huge heat
Randy Orton: But tonight I will pick another victim, another legacy to destroy, another legend to kill, by the time I am done with this man, his legacy, will be just like The Undertaker’s…Resting In Peace
Orton laughs and “Burn in My Light” hits, he then leaves the ring and heads backstage.
Jim Ross: Strong words from the Legend Killer Randy Orton, I just wonder King, who is the next victim?
Jerry Lawler: I have absolutely no idea JR
Christy Hemme’s music plays throughout the arena to a small pop from the crowd as she makes her way down to the ring.
Jim Ross: Our next title match here tonight is a rematch from Wrestlemania where the Womens Champion Christy Hemme will put her title on the line against Trish Stratus
WWE Women’s Championship
Christy Hemme © vs. Trish Stratus
Typical match from these two, Christy doesn’t do very well in the ring and injures her arm during the match.
Match Ending: Christy tries to go for the twist of fate on Trish; she hits the move but lies down on the mat holding her upper arm, close to her shoulder. Trish manages to get up as Christy struggles. Trish mocks her then hits the Chick Kick, she then pulls Christy into the centre of the ring and covers for the 1-2-3.
Winner: and NEW Women’s Champion…Trish Stratus!!!!
Jim Ross: Trish Stratus has just become the seven time womens Champion King
Jerry Lawler: She looks like a champion
Jim Ross: What a bad break for Christy Hemme, you have to wonder what the extent of that shoulder injury might be, we’ll be back after this commercial break
Jim Ross: Welcome back here ladies and gentlemen to Monday Night Raw, still much more to come tonight including our blockbuster main event later tonight, the World Heavyweight Champion Batista defends against the colossal giant, known as The Big Show!!
Jerry Lawler: I can’t wait for that JR, but don’t forget, JBL is in action!
Jim Ross: He sure is, JBL will take on Shelton Benjamin later on tonight in a non-title bout
Jerry Lawler: I really can’t wait to see JBL in a raw ring, things just keep getting better and better
Jim Ross: Well now it’s time to go backstage to Todd Grisham who has a special surprise for you all
We cut backstage to see Todd looking into the camera
Todd Grisham: Indeed I have JR and King, now I would like to welcome back to Raw, a man who was injured by Kane last year shortly after Summerslam, Matt Hardy!!!
The crowd cheer as a smiling Matt Hardy appears on screen
Todd Grisham: Well Matt, this is your first appearance back on Raw for 8 months, a lot has transpired since then including the incident between, Gene Snitsky, Kane and Lita, what are your thoughts?
Matt Hardy: I’ve been asked that a lot over the past few months, Matt do you have any sympathy for what happened to Kane and Lita?
Matt looks at Todd
Matt Hardy: The answer is…Hell no!!
Matt Hardy: They deserve it, both of them do, we already have two freaks on Raw, those being Kane and Lita, the last thing we need is a third
The crowd give Matt heat
Matt Hardy: As for Gene Snitsky, he did me a favour, of course the death of Lita’s baby, wasn’t his fault, but what he did to Kane…
Matt laughs again
Matt Hardy: That was all his fault…I have a message for Kane, you see me and Kane have had many battles, I’ve beaten him, he’s beaten me, but there was never a clear winner, so Kane do you know what I want? At Backlash, on one side of the ring it will be you accompanied by your other Big Red Slut Lita, against Matt Hardy, in a Texas Death Match!
Matt Hardy walks off pushing past Todd
We cut back to JR and The King
Jim Ross: Shocking words from Matt Hardy there…
Jerry Lawler: Yes JR, they are shocking but they are the truth, Matt Hardy was the victim in the whole situation
Chris Masters music hits throughout the arena to heat from the crowd as he makes his way to the ring for the following match.
Jim Ross: What a match this is going to be King
Jerry Lawler: Look at this guy Chris Masters, you don’t have to go to some museum to see him, you don’t have to go to an art gallery, the only place you can see Chris Masters is right here on Raw
Jim Ross: He does indeed have an impressive physique, but if he let that do the talking in the ring instead of his gigantic mouth then he may be a bigger star than he is King
“Whatever” plays throughout the arena to a huge pop as Chris Benoit makes his way down to the ring keeping his eyes focused on Chris Masters
Jim Ross: But can he beat this man, a future hall of famer, Chris Benoit a former Worlds Heavyweight Champion, one of the best wrestlers to ever compete in the WWE. We are about to find out, when we come back
Chris Benoit vs. Chris Masters
A technical match here, Masters tries to lock in the Masterlock but each time Benoit manages to counter before he can lock the hold in.
Match Ending: Chris Masters once again tries to lock in his Masterlock but Benoit counters with a back elbow. Masters then turns around angry and tries a clothesline but Benoit ducks and grabs Masters around the waste and delivers a German Suplex. Benoit keeps his grip and picks up Masters again and goes for the second German Suplex and hits it, he keeps his grip and picks up Masters, trying for a third German Suplex but Masters back elbows Benoit causing him to stagger back into the corner as Randy Orton jumps over the barricade, Masters sees Orton then grabs hold of the referee’s shirt, distracting him. Orton grabs the ring bell from the timekeeper’s table and sets up Benoit who is using the ropes to get up. Orton clocks Benoit with the ring bell then throws it to his side. Benoit falls back and lays spread out on the mat. Orton moves around to the other side of the ring and taps the mat as an “Orton sucks” chant breaks out. Masters walks over to Benoit and picks him up, Benoit looks unconscious as Masters locks in the Master Lock, the referee checks Benoit and calls for the bell.
Winner: “The Masterpiece” Chris Masters
Jim Ross: What the hell did Randy Orton do that for?
Jerry Lawler: Chris Benoit must be the next victim of the Legend Killer
Jim Ross: Well he looks to be unconscious right now, long before he was put in the Master Lock I might add
Masters keeps the Master Lock applied as Randy Orton climbs into the ring, Orton taunts Benoit then delivers several right hands and boots to the face of Benoit. Masters then throws Benoit down to the mat and both Orton and Masters leave together.
Jim Ross: This was a damn set up, between Randy Orton and Chris Masters, a damn set up!
Jerry Lawler: Easy JR, Easy, calm down
Jim Ross: Let’s go for a quick commercial break
We come back from the commercial to see Chris Jericho in the ring ready for his Highlight Reel. His music cuts and he listens to the huge “Y2J” chant before he speaks.
Chris Jericho: Welcome to the Highlight Reel!!
The fans cheer
Chris Jericho: My guest tonight ladies and gentlemen is someone that all the Jerichoholics here in Dallas, Texas will all be familiar with, he is the ass clown that attacked me last week on Raw, ladies and gentlemen, Edge!!!
“You think you know me” hits throughout the arena to huge heat from the crowd as Edge makes his way to the ring keeping his eyes on Chris Jericho. He slides into the ring and goes face to face with Jericho before taking a step back and picking up a microphone from the chair.
Chris Jericho: Now Edge, I can’t whoop your ass tonight because Eric Bischoff has barred any physical interaction between the two of us here, that disappoints me slightly, but it’s time to ask the first question, Why the hell are you always in such an angry mood Edge huh? Why are you always acting like you are being “screwed?”
Edge: You want to know why I’m not kissing the ass of these fans Chris? They don’t get me anywhere, From Day one in this company I have worked my ass off, multiple time tag team champion, intercontinental champion, king of the ring, you name it, I’ve done it, but I still haven’t received a fair opportunity at the World Heavyweight Championship!!
Edge looks around trying to calm down
Edge: I Tried to do the good guy thing, but it got me nowhere, so now Chris, I’m going to look after number one, ME!!!!!
The crowd boo
Edge: At Taboo Tuesday, these people screwed me out of the one thing that I deserve more than anyone else in this damn business! The World Heavyweight Championship!!!
Edge brings to breathe heavily
Edge: At Wrestlemania, I was screwed again, I was about to grab that Money in the Bank contract and take what was rightfully mine, but I was screwed again by you!!
Chris Jericho laughs
Edge: What the hell are you laughing at???
Chris Jericho: I’m laughing at you, your pathetic, since I’m not in any hurry to use my Money In the Bank contract, I have an idea, how about this Edge, at Backlash we have a match Chris Jericho, against Edge and I will put my Money in the Bank contract on the line how about that Edge?
The fans cheer
Edge: You’re on!!!
Edge and Jericho go face-to-face exchange words when “I’m Back” hits throughout the arena to a mixed reaction from the crowd as Eric Bischoff makes his way to the stage.
Eric Bischoff: I’ll make this quick, I’m out here for a number of reasons, Backlash as you all know is shaping up nicely, and a match I am out here to announce is that “The Legend Killer” Randy Orton will go one on one with “The Rabid Wolverine” Chris Benoit!!!!
The fans cheer
Eric Bischoff: Also, Kane has officially accepted the challenge by Matt Hardy to have a Texas Death Match at Backlash!!!
The Fans Cheer again
Eric Bischoff: Also next week on Raw, as per stated in JBL’s rematch clause which I have allowed to let him use here on Raw, JBL will pick a stipulation of his choosing for his World Heavyweight Championship match against either Batista or The Big Show depending on who wins tonight’s main event
The crowd cheers one more time as Bischoff smiles
Eric Bischoff: I see this great match, Chris Jericho against Edge, the Money in the Bank rematch, however it’s missing something, this match has the potential to be another chaotic match and I need something that will keep this action under control, I need…a Steel Cage Match!!!
The Fans Cheer again as Edge and Jericho turn to each other as “I’m Back” plays and then we go to a commercial break.
“Sexy Boy” plays to a huge pop throughout the arena
Jim Ross: Here comes the Heartbreak Kid ladies and gentlemen, Shawn Michaels ready to gain some retribution on Muhammad Hassan
Shawn Michaels is half way down the ramp when Muhammad Hassan and Daivari attack him from behind.
Jim Ross: What the hell are they doing?
Hassan and Daivari put the boots to Michaels then Hassan picks him up and Irish Whips him into the steel steps. Khosrow Daivari runs around the ring and grabs a steel chair then runs back around and hands it to Hassan. Daivari helps Michaels to his feet allowing Hassan to deliver a thunderous shot to the forehead of Michaels splitting him wide open. Several officials come out to help Michaels as Hassan and Daivari head to the back.
Shawn Michaels vs. Muhammad Hassan officially never gets under way.
Jerry Lawler: Well Muhammad Hassan requested this match, now we know why
Jim Ross: Hopefully Shawn Michaels will soon get his chance for retribution
We see Shelton Benjamin backstage walking to the ring, he seems focused but stops then looks up as The Masterpiece approaches him with a huge smile on his face.
Chris Masters: I hope you watched my match earlier, I proved that the Master Lock is the greatest submission in wrestling history
Shelton Benjamin: You know what? Save the lecture, why don’t you prove it physically to me, in the ring next week, how about that?
Chris Masters: Yeah well…the thing is, I’ve beaten Chris Benoit, and I’ve already surpassed everything you’ve done on Raw
Shelton Benjamin: Well on second thoughts, I have an even better idea, you, and me at Backlash, for this Intercontinental Title
Benjamin holds up the belt and smiles at Masters who looks at the belt, then nods his head and walks off sharply.
We cut back to JR and King
Jim Ross: Well King, in my opinion, Chris Masters did not prove that the Master Lock was the greatest submission in the WWE, I think Chris Benoit was out before he was even in it
Jerry Lawler: Nobody in the WWE has been able to break out of it thus far, including Chris Benoit, nobody has been able to with stand the pain of the Master Lock
“Longhorn” hits throughout the arena to huge heat from the crowd as JBL makes his way to the ring, the limo pulling in at the side of the stage.
Jim Ross: Now it’s time for JBL’s Raw Debut when we come back from this commercial break!!!
John Bradshaw Layfield vs. Shelton Benjamin
Even match with Shelton Benjamin nearly scoring a surprise win on several occasions with various different types of rollups.
Match Ending: Shelton Benjamin goes for the T-Bone suplex but JBL counters with a back elbow. JBL picks up Shelton Benjamin and hits a sidewalk slam, JBL covers 1-2-kickout. JBL gets to his feet then picks up Shelton. JBL Irish Whips Shelton Benjamin across the ring then goes for a big boot but Benjamin ducks and comes off the ropes on the other side with a clothesline knocking JBL down. Benjamin sets JBL who has rolled over into the corner, JBL gets to his feet, Benjamin runs and tries the Stinger Splash but JBL moves, Benjamin hits the turnbuckle as JBL runs off the ropes then delivers the Clothesline from Hell!!! JBL covers for the 1-2-3
Winner: John Bradshaw Layfield
Jim Ross: An impressive win by JBL on his Raw Debut
Jerry Lawler: I’m beginning to like this JBL more and more, what a coup it was when Raw signed him
Jim Ross: Indeed, now it’s time to take our last commercial break of the evening
We come back to see Todd Grisham looking into the camera with a microphone in hand.
Todd Grisham: Ladies and Gentlemen, my guest is the World Heavyweight Champion Batista, if you win tonight Dave, you will go on to Backlash to face JBL, who has already guaranteed victory, what are your thoughts on that?
Batista: I’m the World Heavyweight Champion for a reason, I earned it when I beat Triple H at Wrestlemania, I did not win the championship by talking trash on the microphone in the ring, JBL may have been the reason that some people went to Wrestlemania, but lets face it, they went there to watch him lose!!
Batista: As for guarantees, tonight I make a guarantee of my own, in the middle of the ring tonight, I guarantee I will pick up the Big Show and deliver my very own Batista Bomb and walk out of here tonight the World Heavyweight Champion!
Batista walks off as we cut back to JR and The King
Jim Ross: Strong words from the World Heavyweight Champion, but do you think he can really Batista Bomb the massive 500 pound Big Show?
Jerry Lawler: I think Batista can pick up a lot of people, but this one maybe a step too far even for Batista
“Unleashed Rage” plays throughout the arena to a huge pop from the crowd as Batista makes his way to the ring for the following match.
Jim Ross: Well let’s find out if he can do it, it’s time for the main event
World Heavyweight Championship
Batista © vs. The Big Show
The match is a brawl; The Big Show manages to work on the back of Batista throughout the match. JBL watches on from the stage
Match Ending: The Big Show signals for the chokeslam but Batista manages to fight out of it. Batista delivers hard right hands to the forehead of The Big Show causing him to stagger. Batista tries to Irish Whip Show but Show reverses and goes for a clothesline but Batista ducks then nails one of his own. Show goes down but gets up quickly and runs at Batista, Batista manages to Spine buster Show but hurts his back doing so. Batista walks over to show holding his back then picks Show up, he tries for the Batista Bomb but can’t do it, he lets go of Show and holds his back, after about 10 seconds Batista jumps up and screams, amazingly managing to shake off the pain. He picks up Show then delivers a thunderous Batista Bomb. Batista covers Show for the 1-2-3 keeping his eyes on a stunned JBL.
