Re: Forever-Delayed Does WWE
No Mercy 2006
Edge def. AJ Styles when he nailed him with the Spear to get the clean win after a hard-fought match between the two of them. Surprisingly Edge didn’t try to cheat at all throughout the match, and almost fought as if he was a face, even resisting the temptation to do something when the referee was accidentally knocked out. AJ Styles had almost got the win when he hit the Spinal Tap and the Pele Kick, but Edge kicked out on 2, before managing to hit the Spear out of nowhere to get the win.
Jeff Hardy def. Shelton Benjamin when he hit him with the Swanton Bomb off the top rope, meaning that he will get a shot at the United States title on Smackdown. The match was full of high flying moves and high spots, including Shelton hitting a leaping suplex when Hardy went for a Swanton earlier in the match, and Hardy getting his payback when he managed to flip out of a T-Bone Suplex and hit a dropkick in mid-air. This then helped to set up the Swanton, giving him the road
Kid Kash def. Chavo Guerrero with the brainbuster to retain the Cruiserweight title. Kash had managed to avoid all that Chavo had thrown at him, including kicking out of the Gory Bomb, before finishing him off with the brainbuster. He had earlier missed a moonsault attempt, but he recovered to keep his title and prove he is still the best cruiserweight around
Brock Lesnar def. Carlito to retain the US title when he caught Carlito in mid-air and then hit him with the F-5. Carlito had put up another great effort, but just fell short of regaining his title as Lesnar had managed to survive everything that he threw at him, including kicking out of the backcracker. Carlito had also hit Lesnar with the title belt at one stage, but Lesnar kicked out after the referee had recovered from being knocked down. Lesnar hadn’t managed to dominate this match like he did at Summerslam, and Carlito was in control of the match when Lesnar caught him with the F-5 to end the match and Carlito’s dreams
Mr. Kennedy def. Kane when he hit him with the microphone that lowered from the ceiling while Kane was going to chokeslam him. Kennedy had earlier failed in all of his attempts to take down Kane as he couldn’t hit him with the Green Bay Plunge, and nothing that he threw at him could beat Kane. However, Kennedy had managed to avoid Kane for the most part of the match, not letting Kane nail him with the chokeslam, until the match came to an end when Kennedy used the Microphone to end the match
Batista def. Randy Orton via DQ when Randy Orton hit Batista with a steel chair in front of the referee after he was unable to end the match. Batista had earlier kicked out of the RKO, so Orton just used a chair shot to end the match. Orton then decided to go for another RKO on Batista to emphasise the point, but Batista countered the move and hit a huge Spinebuster to Orton , and then nailed him with the Batista Bomb to take Orton down, before leaving the ring, although it didn’t seem as if he had totally taken his revenge on Orton yet. Earlier in the match we had seen Batista score a 2 count after a spinebuster, which was as close as he had come to winning the match before Orton’s RKO, which Batista kicked out of.
London and Kendrick def. XXX to become the new World Tag Team Champions when Paul London hit the 450 splash to Elix Skipper, after Kendrick had hit him with the sliced bread #2. London and Kendrick couldn’t believe they had taken the titles off XXX, who blamed the referee for their loss, as afterwards Daniels hit the Angel wings to him. London and Kendrick had been dominated for most of the match, but London got the hot tag which led to him and Kendrick getting the pin to win the titles
Rob Van Dam def. The Rock to retain the World Heavyweight Title after hitting him with the 5 star frog splash. However, Paul Heyman had a huge assist as he had hit the Rock in the back with a steel chair when he was going for the People’s Elbow. The distraction proved enough to change the tide of the match, as while the referee was dealing with Heyman, RVD hit the Van Damninator to the Rock, and then hit the 5 star frog splash onto the chair to get the win. Earlier in the match, RVD had managed to kick out of the Rock Bottom, while the Rock kicked out of the 5 star frog splash the first time he was hit with it.

Lead up to Survivor Series
Matt Hardy is still the WWE Champion, but he appeared to be running out of ways that he could survive with the title. After refusing to defend his title against anyone other than his handpicked contenders, he made a speech saying that he didn’t need to face any of the supposed big-names as he had beaten them all in the past. After getting to the Undertaker, and recalling how he destroyed him time and time again, the Undertaker came out and Tombstoned Matt Hardy. Vince, who had grown tired of Hardy’s rants and behaviour as champion just declared Taker the number 1 contender to the title, and told Hardy he would face him at Survivor Series. Matt said he would prove how easy it would be to beat Taker by sending Shannon Moore to face him, only for Shannon to be annihilated and sent into hospital with injury. While Hardy was visiting Moore in hospital, Taker used his magic tricks to cut the lighting, and when it came back on Hardy had been knocked out. Hardy looked to be about to lose his title, but on the last Raw before Survivor Series, Matt Hardy hit a twist of fate off the stage to the Undertaker, looking as if he could deal with him.
Hardy was no longer a double champion though, as CM Punk had beat him to become the new Intercontinental Champion, due to an assist from the Undertaker.
Eric Bischoff made a shock return to Monday Night Raw by sitting in the front row for one of the events, but was right behind the commentators, and had brought a megaphone with him. Vince was forced to come out and invited Eric into the ring, telling him that he was banned from Monday Night Raw indefinitely... only for Eric to tell him he can’t do that and that he will regret that decision.
Eric Bischoff didn’t show up the following week, but the week after that the show couldn’t begin on time as Eric Bischoff had set up a blockade outside the building meaning that no-one could get into the building, and so the show couldn’t begin. He said that he wanted to talk to Vince, and Vince told Eric that he was not welcome at his shows any more, only for Eric to say that unless he got what he wants, the show wouldn’t start that night. Eric said he wanted to do things fairly, and challenged Vince McMahon to a match in a traditional Survivor Series fashion. He said he would challenge him to a 6 on 6 match, and if he lost, he would disappear from Raw forever, but if he won, he would be allowed back on Raw. Vince accepted the match and signed the contract, but then played his trump card... Eric was still banned from appearing on Raw, and so couldn’t enter the building to recruit people for his team.
However, this didn’t stop Eric Bischoff appearing on TV as he often showed up outside the building, and also appeared twice on Smackdown to hype the match and to try and sign superstars for his team. The first man who was announced on his team was the returning Booker T, who had been out for a while with injury, saying that Bischoff offered more opportunities that Vince was. He was soon joined by Gregory Helms, when Bischoff reminded him about how well he had done on WCW, and how little he had been allowed to achieve under Vince McMahon. He then hired MNM to be on his team, after they had become the new WWE Tag Team Champions (beating D-Generation X to win the belts due to some help from John Cena and Rey Mysterio), and then picked up Brock Lesnar from his second trip to Smackdown, telling him that it was the best way to get himself back into the World Title picture. And finally, on the final Raw before Survivor Series, Kurt Angle made a surprise re-appearance from injury to announce he would be on Eric Bischoff’s team, saying that Bischoff was a man who respected him, and that’s why he wanted him back on Raw.
Vince’s team started by Christian saying that he wanted to help Vince get rid of Bischoff, and so Vince named Christian his team captain, leading to Christian picking Tyson Tomko as the first member of his team. After a promo where Eric Bischoff ripped into the WWE, Hardcore Holly stepped up to defend it and joined the team, and then JBL joined, after he was insulted by Bischoff. After Lesnar was added to the match, Carlito showed up on the next Raw and asked to be in Vince’s team, just to get some more payback on Lesnar. The 6th and final man was Shane McMahon, who made his first appearance on Raw in years when he came back to help defend his father.
DX and Cena didn’t appear to have ended their rivalry either, especially when Cena and Rey Mysterio cost DX the tag team titles. Cena and Rey appeared to develop a bit of a friendship, united by their hatred of DX, and told them they were ready for them at any time. They were joined by CM Punk, who incurred the wrath of DX after shocking HHH in a non-title match, leading to DX beating down Punk. Vince announced that at Survivor Series there would be a 3 on 3 elimination match between the two teams, leading DX to try and find a 3rd member for the night, only for them to choose the most random person; Umaga! This led to do a few skits where they tried to incorporate Umaga and Estrada into DX, although really they want him as he had only ever lost 1 match.
Also on Raw, the rivalry between Trish Stratus and Mickie James over the women’s title continued, but Mickie just seemed unable to win the title, which Trish finding a way to screw her out of the title at every opportunity. But Mickie won a last chance match against Trish on Raw to give her one final shot for the title at Survivor Series. And then she won a tag team match against Trish and Britney, enabling her to choose the match type, which she did by choosing a cage match. Trish was furious that she wouldn’t be able to just escape with the title, while Mickie knew she would finally get a fair shot at the title
Over on Smackdown, there would be no title match at the ppv, as their main event would be a 5 on 5 match between Paul Heyman’s team and Mick Foley’s team. Foley still had his problems with Randy Orton, and Rob Van Dam and Paul Heyman were also causing trouble for him. The two of them formed a small alliance, and challenged Foley to a match at Survivor Series, with the stipulation that if Foley lost he would have to give up the GM role on Smackdown. Foley eventually accepted the match, and recruited the Rock, Batista, Paul London and Brian Kendrick to his team. Heyman picked RVD, Randy Orton and Triple X, but had to be replaced on the final Smackdown when he produced a doctor’s note to suggest he was too injured to compete at the ppv, and instead he picked Kane as his 5th man.
Mr. Kennedy continued to talk as if he was the biggest star on Smackdown, showing the footage of him beating Kane at No Mercy to suggest that he would be getting a shot at the title soon. He continued to go and on about this, until Edge finally interrupted him and told Kennedy to shut up. Edge said that Kennedy hadn’t done anything to deserve a title shot, and if he wants to prove he deserves one he has to do his talking in the ring. Edge told Kennedy that he also wanted a title shot, but has learnt that he has to earn one as just whining about doesn’t work anymore. Both men had something to prove with them both wanting to get back in the title picture, and they would meet at Survivor Series
Finally, the United States title would be on the line when Jeff Hardy would defend the belt against Shelton Benjamin. Jeff Hardy won the title when he beat Brock Lesnar, but with the help of Carlito, but was immediately focused upon by Shelton, saying that he had unfinished business with him. Shelton defeated AJ Styles to be the number 1 contender, and he would get another chance to win the title at the ppv
