Re: Forever-Delayed and Kane01 Do WWE
WWE RAW – May 29th
The show kicks off with Jonathon Coachman standing in the middle of the ring, and he announces that we are about to see a contract signing for the main event of KOTR. He starts by bringing out Chris Jericho, and then out comes Christian, as the two men are ready to sign the contract for the match
Jericho as the challenger speaks first, and tells everyone that this will be the time when he gets to prove that he really is the best in the business, and his loss to Christian at Wrestlemania was a fluke. He says that since then, Christian may have defended the title well, but simply because he hasn’t faced the best man on Raw, that man being Chris Jericho.
Christian then takes the microphone, and tells Jericho that he doesn’t know what he is getting at, as he has beaten Jericho on more than 1 occasion. He reminds Jericho of Christian pinning him at Saturday Night Main Event as well, and tells Jericho that he is more than happy to do it again at King of the Ring.
Jericho says that won’t happen, and then takes a look at the contract, before declaring the whole thing to be a joke. He says that he doesn’t want this kind of match, but it is open to fluke results! He says that Christian could fluke a win, or his crew could cost Jericho the match, and says he doesn’t want that. He tells Christian that if he is a real champion, he will defend the title in a 3 STAGES OF HELL MATCH!
Christian smiles, and says that he has absolutely no problem with that, as when he wins, it proves to everyone that he isn’t the fluke champion that Jericho claims he is, he isn’t the man holding the title by default, and he is the true WWE Champion.
Jericho and Christian agree on this type of match, but the Coach takes the mic again, and says that he is the man in charge here, and he will be deciding the type of match. The Coach says it will be a 3 stages of hell match. The first fall will be a regular match, just like it was at Wrestlemania. The second fall will be A STREET FIGHT, and if needed, the third fall… will be a LADDER MATCH!
Christian and Jericho both sign the contract, and Jericho tells Christian to keep the belt warm, because at KOTR, it comes back around Jericho’s waist, where it will never, ever, leave. Christian tells Jericho that he can believe that, but it will be Christian who walks out of KOTR as the WWE champion, BECAUSE THAT’S HOW HE ROLLS!
We return from the commercial, and Matt Hardy comes out to the ring, as it is time for an Intercontinental Title match, and he will be defending the title against Charlie Haas, who in the traditional style of the midcard has done nothing to earn a title shot, but he might as well be given one. Haas puts up a good effort, but in the end, it is not enough against the experience of Hardy, who has been on fire ever since Wrestlemania. Hardy gets the win after catching Haas with the twist of fate from nowhere, and retains the title.
Hardy celebrates the win, as Shannon Moore runs out from the back and gives Hardy the title, and joins in the celebration with him
We go backstage, and we see Eric Bischoff walking through the backstage area, when he bumps into Rob Van Dam for the second week in a row. Eric asks him whether he has thought about what he said last week, only for RVD to tell Eric that he doesn’t really care about what he thinks any more. He tells Eric that as far as he is concerned, he can do what he likes to him, and that Eric can kiss his ass!
Eric is obviously delighted at what he has just been told, and tells RVD that he is no longer a part of the KOTR tournament, and as of this moment, he has been replaced.
RVD seems totally unconcerned by this, and tells Eric that’s fine with him. He says that he’s had a better offer anyway, and won’t be around on Monday Night Raw anyway, so it wasn’t really fair for him to have the spot. He tells Eric that he’ll see him around, as he picks up his bags, and him and Paul Heyman walk straight out of Raw
We return from the commercial, and JR and the King re-iterate the big news that we have just heard; that being RVD appears to have quit his Monday Night raw contract. The commentators discuss what that means for Raw, and what else could happen tonight… but are interrupted by Umaga’s music, as it is time for a rematch from last week, as Umaga takes on Hardcore Holly.
We get a solid match between the two of them, with Holly really taking it to Umaga in an attempt to be the first man to beat him, and to get revenge for the loss in the KOTR tournament last week. Holly has a good go at it, and manages to knock Umaga off his feet when he nails a dropkick off the top rope, but in only gets a 2 count. Holly then decides to get a chair instead of going to finish the match off, AND SMASHES THE CHAIR OVER THE HEAD OF UMAGA. The crowd pop, as Umaga stutters backwards, AS HOLLY NAILS HIM AGAIN. The referee calls for the DQ, but Holly just walks off, having taken Umaga down. Estrada tells Holly that he will pay for this, but this has proved that Umaga can be harmed
We then go backstage, and we see John Cena entering the building, which gets a huge pop from the crowd. We follow him walk straight into his dressing room, not wanting to talk to anyone on the way about his handicap match with DX at KOTR
We then go back to the ring, and we see the Highlanders there, and they are soon joined by JBL and Booker T, as it is time for another match in the tag team tournament. We get a short match between the two sides, as there is still a lot that has been booked for tonight, and this is one of the least important segments of the day. In the end, JBL and Booker T get the win when JBL nails the clothesline from hell to Rory, and then covers him to get the win.
JBL and Booker celebrate, as JBL has sent out a message ahead of his KOTR match next week, and they still have a chance of being the tag team champions
We return, and Kurt Angle comes out to the ring, as it is time for the next match in the King of the Ring tournament. We are told the winner of this match will face Umaga in the R16 next week, and that Kurt Angle’s opponent will be the final draft lottery pick for Raw… WHO TURNS OUT TO BE REY MYSTERIO!
The crowd go wild, as Rey Mysterio is now on Raw, and we are about to witness a Wrestlemania rematch between these two men, but this time with a match against Umaga in the next round of the KOTR as a reward for winning the match.
The match starts with an action packed few minutes, with both men trying to gain an early advantage on the other one, with Angle using a series of suplexes on Rey, and Rey using his speed and high flying ability to take down Angle, before the match settles down a more normal pace after Angle catches him in mid air, and then nails him with a belly to belly suplex. Angle then starts to work on the legs of Rey, knowing that if he takes away his legs, his speed advantage in the match is lost, and it sets him up a bit more for his submission holds.
After a good few minutes of Angle working on the legs, the match spills to the outside, as Rey is whipped into the steel steps. Angle then takes him to the barrier, and he sets him up for an Angle slam onto the barrier…only for Rey to slip out of it, and then dropkick Angle over the barrier and into the crowd… but Rey’s relief doesn’t last for too long, as Angle takes him down with a flying clothesline off the barrier.
They go back in the ring, but Angle cannot get the job done, so heads up top to hit the moonsault, only for him to spend too long taunting the crowd, as Rey manages to get to his feet, and nails Angle with a dropkick. Rey then manages to nail a hurricanarana to Angle, but can only get a 2 count. He goes to the top rope, but the work Angle did on his legs slowed him down… and Angle has the time to leap up the top rope, and nail a springboard belly to belly, but can only get a 2 count.
Angle then goes for the Angle Slam… but again, Rey slips out of it, and then nails a dropkick to Angle… and Angle falls into position for the 619… Rey then runs at Angle, looking to hit the 619… BUT ANGLE MANAGES TO ROLL OUT OF THE RING. The crowd boo, as Angle walks over to the announce table and picks up a steel chair. REY LEAPS OVER THE TOP ROPE AT ANGLE, BUT ANGLE BLASTS HIM WITH THE CHAIR, CAUSING THE DQ.
Angle then nails Rey with the chair again, before locking in the ankle lock on Rey, who is screaming in pain. Angle looks to have wrecked the ankle of Rey Mysterio, who gets the win and advances in the KOTR here, but could have been taken out by Kurt Angle
We come back from a commercial, and we are shown an interview with Angle that happened during the commercial break. Angle is asked why he got himself DQ’ed and cost himself a chance of becoming the 2006 KOTR, and he replies by saying that this match was never about being the KOTR, it was about getting some revenge on Rey Mysterio, and showing him that the Wrestlemania win wasn’t a fluke. He says that at Wrestlemania, he beat Rey Mysterio, and he wants to do the same again in the future, just to prove to Rey that he hasn’t lost his touch, and he can beat him without cheating, as he was supposed to do have done at Mania (he rolled him up and grabbed hold of the tights and the ropes). He says that he has been wanting another match with Rey ever since the draft began, and was determined to end up on the same brand as him. He says that Rey may have won the match tonight, but Angle won the battle, and will win the war!
CM Punk then comes out to the ring for the final first round match in the KOTR, but has no idea as to who his opponent will be, as the man he was supposed to face, Rob Van Dam, was kicked out of the tournament earlier tonight.
Eric Bischoff comes out, and says although it was tempting to compete himself, and show everyone what will happen to John Cena in 3 weeks tonight, he decided that it wouldn’t be the best option. He says that CM Punk will have a match tonight, but it will not be against 1 man… but it will be a 6 pack challenge. And his 5 opponents will be…. THE SPIRIT SQUAD!
Punk is left having to face the whole Spirit Squad in order to qualify for the next round, and he also knows that he doesn’t have to be pinned for him to lose the match.
Punk starts off by throwing everything he can at the Spirit Squad, but the sheer numbers of them make it difficult for him, and eventually he succumbs to them, and they work him over, and the 5 of them hit the High Spirits to him. Kenny goes to cover… but can only get to 2 before he is pulled off Punk by Jonny, who also wants to advance to the next round it seems. The Spirit Squad then seem to disintegrate, as they start a showing match between themselves, as all of them seem to want to get the get the win… AND THIS ALLOWS PUNK TO ROLL UP MITCH FROM BEHIND, AND GET A SNEAKY 3 COUNT.
The crowd erupt, as Punk overcomes the odds and qualifies for the next round of the KOTR
We then cut back to the ring, and we see the Teachers make their way out to the ring, as they are back on Raw for the first time in 6 weeks after the injury that Nowinski picked up in the run up to Wrestlemania, as they are about to face Christian and Tyson Tomko, who get a massive pop as they come out to the ring… but they are followed by Chris Jericho, who is going to once again reprise his role as part-time commentator, and spends the whole match talking, not allowing JR and the King to get much of a say in.
In terms of the match, it only lasts for a few minutes, as you get the sense that the show is close to overrunning, and with a big segment to come, this match has to be cut. Tomko plays the face in peril for a stretch in the match, but after a double clothesline to Striker and Nowinski, he tags in Christian, and at which point business picks up. Christian then dominates both members of the tag team, and then he ends by following up with the Unprettier to Striker, before covering to get the 3 count, as Tomko nails the big boot to Nowinski to stop him breaking up the count.
Jericho starts to applaud Christian and Tomko, who celebrate the win, knowing they are the first team in the semi finals of the tournament to crown new tag team champions.
As the show draws to a close, we get the final segment of the night, as D-Generation X come out to the ring to talk about the match they have with John Cena at King of the Ring. They start with their traditional introduction, which gets the crowd fired up, but they still get booed from the crowd.
HBK takes the mic, and says they felt that they had to come out here, because there has been a change of plan. He says that DX talked this through, and felt that it would be unfair… unfair for all the fans who have paid to see DX compete, as the match would just be too easy for them. They say that they want some competition, and so will allow John Cena to have a tag team partner… but HHH says there is a catch; he has to name the partner tonight. HHH looks at his watch, and he says that Raw is over in roughly 10 minutes.
HHH and HBK then take it in turns to give reasons why people should volunteer to be Cena’s partner, and their reasons include such gems such as ‘it may be your only chance to get your ass kicked by DX’, and ‘because it will be good for the soul’.
Cena then comes out to the ring, and he looks very fired up as he does so. He says he appreciates the fact that DX have allowed him a partner, but to be honest, he never needed one in the first place. He says that DX may have had a number advantage going into that match, but he has made a career of overcoming the odds. He mentions that DX at KOTR will be used as a warning sign… a warning to Eric Bischoff as to what is going to happen to him when they meet in a cage, only for HHH to interrupt him, and tell him that all that is going to happen at KOTR is that he will get his ass nailed flat on the floor by D-Generation X.
HBK then says that he is surprised that Cena is out here, when he could be backstage, trying to find a partner. HBK says that Cena may be superman, he may be one of the best superstars in the WWE today, but he isn’t good enough to beat DX by himself…and if he’s not down with that, DX have just 2 words for him…
Cena then interrupts, and tells DX that he couldn’t give a crap about their stupid catchphrase. He says that maybe Shawn is right, maybe he can’t beat DX by himself… but unfortunately he won’t get the chance to find out whether he can or not. He says that he has found a partner for the KOTR match… but HHH says that it simply doesn’t matter whether he has or not. HHH says that there is not a man alive who can scare D-Generation X…AS THE LIGHTS GO OUT, AND THE GONG HITS! WHEN THE LIGHTS COME BACK ON, THE UNDERTAKER IS STANDING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING.
Cena then takes the mic, and tells DX that you are looking at his tag team partner, AND IF YOU AIN’T DOWN WITH THAT, HE’S GOT JUST 6 WORDS FOR ‘YA, YOU WANT SOME, COME GET SOME!
Cena throws the mic down, and stares straight at DX, whose task suddenly seems to have got a lot harder.
