Renegade Reviews Summerslam
Rey Mysterio vs Mr. Kennedy
Solid match to start the show with, the right choice imo. Was a good match but Hardy wasn't as active in the match as I thought he may prove to be. Kennedy going over keeps him strong and he's gonna have a nice run with the title I hope. Interesting to see if anything develops between Matt & Rey, most likely thinking of a heel turn for Mattitude possibly, but I dunno, you're teasing something I feel. Solid opener. ***1/4
Carlito vs Booker T
Wasn't really a big fan of this one, kinda clashing styles in a way. It wasn't bad or anything, just a little bland in parts. However I am liking Carlito's continued push and I think he may move up to Upper card status sooner rather than later, although Book Man better job keep on jobbing out or I'll be upset. ***
Lashley vs Finlay
Again not the best match really. Real clash of styles in this one. Never liked Lashley nor thought he deserved the push he got in the real WWE, so hopefully you don't over cook his push here so hastily like they did. Also, a Running Powerslam looks weak in finishing off someone really, especially a bad ass like Finlay. Lashley needs to use the Dominator imo. Not bad, but again, kind of a drab. ***
Jeff Hardy vs Shelton
Much better contest, I was expecting a good match and we got that. Benji winning = ratings. I like it. I despise Jeff Hardy above mid card status, so hopefully you don't push him like the WWE has done. I think Shelton deserves this kind of push too, so extra marks
. A good match, as you'd expect with these two in it. ***1/4
Undertaker vs Batista
A let down really, could've been a bit longer and bit more brutal but the debut of Umaga is cool. Undertaker/Umaga is a good idea, fuck Batista off to something else plz. The match felt a little rushed in parts and wasn't as hard hitting as the other Last Ride matches that've existed, still, it had it's moments considering the shortness of it. ***
Kurt Angle vs JBL vs Mark Henry
Get Mark Henry away from the WHC plz. Yuck. Still, a passable match thanks to Angle and JBL turned into a good offering in the end. Angle is looking good as the champ on SmackDown! and it will be interesting to see where he goes from here, possibly a one on one feud with JBL or maybe with Batista? Anyways, a good match. ***1/2
Steel Cage Showdown
Very good match. I enjoyed it. Flair starting with Trips was a good move, considering their history with each other. Made for a good start. Orton out next and then Michaels increased the tempo a wee bit and the match remained on a good pace with some decent spots and such. Austin the final man makes sense, and here is Shane? Um. Shane kicking out of an FU onto a chair? No way. I'm sorry, that's not possible. Bad booking, makes the FU look very weak and Shane look like Superman. Despite having the numbers in their favour Team McMahon can't do anything, good move and the faces come out looking strong. Surprised that Vince wasn't given a Stunner, that's different. ****
Rob Van Dam vs Chris Jericho
Great main event, good entertainment and a top match. RVD as champ is so refreshing it's not funny. Good to see him go over Y2J and keep his title reign going, he's looking strong as champ and I wonder when he's gonna lose it. The ending to an RVD match isn't normally exciting and this was no different, Sabu and Palumbo getting involved was cool. Good ending to the match overall, if o so predictable. ****
Overall, a good PPV from you once again. Realistic booking :P

Re: WWE Unleash the Fury
Noteworthy Smackdown Events
At the Smackdown after SummerSlam, Smackdown GM Theodore Long announced a Beat the Clock Challenge that would start on the Smackdown on September 1st. It would run for three weeks until a number one contender was crowned. Long announced the six men and those were Batista, Edge, Mark Henry, Bobby Lashley, Kane, and Rey Mysterio. In the first week, Batista took on Hardcore Holly and set a standard of 6:58. Rey Mysterio fought his rival Mr. Kennedy later that night and didn't beat the time. On the second week of the challenge, Mark Henry battled against Matt Hardy and they also went over the limit. The second match that night saw Lashley battle Finlay and Finlay got counted out at about 6:02 which gave Lashley the lead. On the third week, Kane would end up battling against MVP in which MVP was able to avoid the pin and keep the match going on in which the time ran out. And in the final match, Edge was able to beat his opponent Paul Burchill in 5:51 with a few seconds to spare to move on due to MVP attacking Burchill. Edge therefore is the new number one contender and will meet Kurt Angle at No Mercy.
The feud between JBL and Theodore Long would continue on. JBL came back on the Smackdown after SummerSlam and accused Teddy of having worked in a dangerous environment. The following week JBL brought his lawyers on a tour of the locker room to show them just how "dangerous" and "unhealthy" it was. JBL made comments to Teddy about how Teddy had no right to put JBL's career on the line. JBL says he talked to the Board and they said they never OK'd the stipulations. JBL said it's OK though because he's brought Vince McMahon into this and Mr. McMahon will be on Smackdown in a few weeks. Teddy says that's fine with him and JBL looks at Teddy straight in the eyes and says "I'll cost you your job too" before he walks out. Weeks later Mr. McMahon makes a special appearance before announcing that JBL will not be allowed at No Mercy. However Mr. McMahon states that once No Mercy is over with this situation will be taken care of.
Rey Mysterio and Matt Hardy's friendship continued on despite the troubled finish in the match at SummerSlam. Both apologized and eventually they both found themselves in contention once again for the title. Eventually it was announced that a Triple Threat Match would take place at No Mercy with Mr. Kennedy having to defend against Rey Mysterio and Matt Hardy. Can Rey and Matt get along despite their recent "trouble" they've had with one another?
Finlay and Lashley would continue battle with one another as it waged on Smackdown for months. Finlay interfered in Lashley's match the week after he was the leader for Beat the Clock attacking Lashley down. Both men had to be restrained numerous times again from one another over the course of the two months that ranged in between SummerSlam and No Mercy. Eventually Smackdown GM Theodore Long had enough and announced that he had booked a Last Man Standing Match at No Mercy between both men.
MVP and Paul Burchill's feud continued on as well right into No Mercy. MVP and Burchill would exchange words for a bit with one another with Burchill even pulling his sword on MVP once after MVP continued to talk trash to Burchill. Both men had a match set up at No Mercy and one has to wonder who will win this match?
A match between two monsters. Kane would end up having to meet Batista at No Mercy after Batista snapped after losing his Beat the Clock Challenge Match. Batista came out and just randomly hit Kane with his chair numerous times knocking out the Big Red Machine. For weeks these men battled with one another as Kane got his revenge by putting the chair around Batista's throat and looking to jump off the ropes but security broke it up. Once these men get ahold of one another at No Mercy, there is no telling what could happen.
A new face made his debut on Smackdown in early September and he goes by the name of Jimmy Wang Yang. Jamie Noble had beaten a few Cruiserweights on Smackdown including his running buddy Kid Kash but demanded that somebody step out from behind the shadows and finally give him a challenge. That man was the new face of the Cruiserweight division being the Asian Redneck, Jimmy Wang Yang! Yang even ended up getting a pin fall win over Noble setting up this Cruiserweight title match for No Mercy.
The feud that ran on for months finally comes to an end at No Mercy. It became very personal once Ashley was brought into the situation as Regal and Taylor went as far as to kidnap the manager of the Tag Champions, Brian Kendrick and Paul London, and torture her. London and Kendrick knew they had to get Ashley back and they eventually found Regal and Taylor fighting them off before getting Ashley back. Regal and Taylor however weren't going to let that get in their way of taking the tag titles.
No Mercy Results
Brian Kendrick and Paul London def. William Regal and Dave Taylor to retain the WWE Tag Team Championships after Regal went for a High Knee but missed and Kendrick ended up connecting with the Sliced Bread #2 to retain the titles for his team.
Mark Henry defeated Hardcore Holly in a short match in which Henry challenged anyone to "take" him on. Holly gave up a decent fight but in the end it was Henry who reigned supreme with the World's Strongest Splash and World's Strongest Slam Combo
MVP def. Paul Burchill with the help of the ropes. Burchill tried for an attempt at the Walking the Plank after MVP missed the Playmaker but MVP rolled Burchill up quickly and got the help of his friend, the ropes, to get him the win.
Jamie Noble def. Jimmy Wang Yang to retain the Cruiserweight Championship after Yang missed a moonsault. Yang collided with the mat which gave Noble time to set up the Tiger Driver to retain the title. Yang had to have been Noble's toughest challenge to date.
Batista def. Kane with the Batista Bomb. Kane attempted a Chokeslam but Batista was quick to reverse with a elbow to the head and then follow it up with the Spinebuster before taking Kane out of the match for the win.
Finlay def. Bobby Lashley in the Last Man Standing Match. Just about everything you could imagine was used in the match by Finlay and Lashley. Finlay got the help of his trusty shillelagh to take down Lashley and then proceeded to throw Lashley off the stage down below with a Celtic Cross to take Lashley out for the ten count
Mr. Kennedy def. Rey Mysterio and Matt Hardy to retain the United States Championship in a thrilling match. Mysterio and Hardy had a bit of mis communication after Mysterio hit the 619 on Kennedy but then accidentaly hit Hardy with the West Coast Pop. Kennedy quickly hurled Mysterio to the outside and covered Hardy for the win.
Edge def. Kurt Angle to become the NEW World-Heavyweight Champion after Angle hit his three German Suplexes and went to lock in the Ankle Lock but Edge was able to roll through and then get back onto his feet and hit Angle with a Spear. Edge then proceeded to lock in the Edgecator for the win and grab his second World title.

Ok here's the deal. I've decided on what I'm going to do. I decided that I'm going to go ahead and stop at Cyber Sunday. Why because I love Survivor Series. I've never had the opportunity to write one and I feel that I'm past a part of the thread that was going to be exciting but kinda dull in a way if you know what I mean.
Anyways, up below I posted the Cyber Sunday card. I'm going to leave that open for a few days for you all to get your votes to me. Simply select who or what you are wanting to vote for and Bold it and then PM them to me. Either Thursday or Friday I'll post a preview explaining the matches and then Cyber Sunday should be up by this weekend. Once that is up, we'll be ready to begin the road to Survivor Series. After that I'll most likely recap Armageddon shortly afterwards before we get to the Royal Rumble.
So just get those votes in and we'll be in good shape.

Re: WWE Unleash the Fury
As much as I love Jericho, it's fairly awesome to see Van Dam's title reign just keep on going. I think this is almost his eighth month with the gold, am I correct? He's beaten guys like Angle, Hunter, Cena, Jericho and HBK, so he has been strong as hell. The way he's been billed though, I have no idea who will take the strap off him.
The Cena/Hunter blow off match sounded fairly awesome, although I was a little surprised to see us get it at Cyber Sunday. This kind of contest had a 'Big 4' PPV written all over it. Cena going over The Game was the only way to go.
I can't wait for The Undertaker's return as well, KOP. It will undoubtedly lead to a match with Umaga at WrestleMania 23, and it should be great.

Noteworthy Events Leading to Survivor Series
It was announced on the Raw shortly after Cyber Sunday that the Elimination Chamber would make it's return for the first time in 22 months. Raw GM Jonathan Coachman announced that at Survivor Series it would be Rob Van Dam having to defend his title against John Cena, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Randy Orton, and Chris Jericho!
World-Heavyweight Champion Edge would move onto a program with little Rey Mysterio over his title. Rey got a big win on the Smackdown after Cyber Sunday to earn the title shot after he had pinned Edge in the ring. Edge told Mysterio that he had no chance of beating the "Rated R Superstar" when it all came down to the big one at Survivor Series.
Smackdown General Manager Theodore Long and John Bradshaw Layfield continued their feud right into Survivor Series. WWE CEO Vince McMahon came in and informed both men that at Survivor Series, they were going to have a Classic Survivor Series Elimination Match. Both JBL and Long could pick their teams and whichever team won the match would be the Smackdown General Manager! JBL pretty much guaranteed victory at Survivor Series while Long stood his ground saying that he will remain the GM come the PPV.
Ric Flair and Charlie Haas continued their program into Survivor Series with Shelton Benjamin becoming somewhat jealous of Haas's sucess since teaming with Flair two months ago. Flair and Haas agreed to a Classic Survivor Series Match at Survivor Series against Benjamin's team.
The Cruiserweights will have their own Elimination Match at Survivor Series as Jamie Noble continued his feud with Jimmy Wang Yang. If Yang's team wins, he gets a title shot at Armageddon for the Cruiserweight Championship.
And finally, Victoria started a small and brief program with Jillian on Smackdown as Jillian talked about how she could beat any diva in the WWE. The WWE's self proclaimed "Bitch" Victoria thought otherwise and challenged Jillian to a match as both women would get some decent wins in action leading up to Survivor Series.
Survivor Series Results
Team Yang (Jimmy Wang Yang, Shannon Moore, and the Mexicools) def. Team Noble (The Pitbulls, Nunzio, and Chavo Guerrero) in which Jimmy Wang Yang earned a Cruiserweight title match for himself once again at Armageddon. Eliminations occured in this order: Nunzio was first to go via Moonsault from Yang. Psicosis found himself gone next after a missed Moonsault of hiw own and Kash took him down with the Dead Level. Kash then ended up taking Moore out of the match as well after Noble choked him with the tag rope and Kash hit him with a huge Backbreaker in the ring. It was down to the Pitbulls and Guerrero vs. Yang and Super Crazy now. Yang was able to rally back and take Kash out of the match with a quick rollup before Guerrero charged right into the ring and right into a Hurricanrana from Yang who got the rollup there as well! Noble was able to rally back and eliminate Super Crazy but Yang was able to avoid a distraction from Kash who came back and hit the Moonsault for the win.
Victoria def. Jillian in an Inter-Promotional Match to retain the Women's Championship. Jillian put up a good fight in the match having came pretty close to getting a chance at closing it out but Victoria stopped her dreams with a kick to the sternum followed by a Widow's Peak for the win.
Ric Flair, Charlie Haas, Carlito, Sabu, and Jeff Hardy def. Shelton Benjamin, MNM, Gregory Helms, and Umaga in the Classic Survivor Series Elimination Match. Eliminations occured in this order: Carlito was able to pin Joey Mercury after a Back Cracker. Shortly after Nitro took down Carlito with a Spinning Neckbreaker to even the match back up. Gregory Helms was next to go after missing a Neckbreaker before being hit by a Twist of Fate from Hardy. Umaga got himself DQ'd after he went crazy and started hitting Sabu with the steel chair in the ring. Sabu had to be taken out leaving it down to 3 on 2. It's Flair, Haas, and Hardy versus Nitro and Benjamin now. Nitro wasn't able to close it out and got hit with a German Suplex combo before tapping out to the Haas of Pain! Finally, Benjamin found himself backed in a corner and he was forced to tap out to the Figure Four after Hardy had hit a Swanton Bomb and tagged in Flair for the win.
Team JBL (MVP, Finlay, Batista, Mark Henry, and Mr. Kennedy) def. Team Long (Kurt Angle, Brian Kendrick, Paul London, Matt Hardy, and Kane) in which JBL is now the Smackdown General Manager. Eliminations occured in this order: MVP was first to go after a missed Playmaker in which Angle capitalized with an Angle Slam. London was next to leave after Henry crushed him with a World's Strongest Slam. However things turned back into Long's favor after Kane hit Henry with a big chokeslam to eliminate him and then took out Finlay the same way. It now was 2 on 4 in Long's favor but Kendrick got counted out after he was pushed to the outside off the turnbuckle by Batista. Matt Hardy ran right into a Mic Check from Mr. Kennedy to eliminate him and bring the match back down to two. Kennedy almost got guzzled for a Chokeslam but ended up getting Batista to distract the referee and Kennedy hit Kane down low before hitting another Mic Check eliminating Kane. It now was Angle vs. Batista and Kennedy and Angle rallied taking Kennedy out with an Angle Slam before falling prey to a Batista Bomb from Batista after JBL grabbed Angle's leg causing him to get distracted.
Edge def. Rey Mysterio to retain the World-Heavyweight Championship after Rey-Rey missed a 619 attempt and turned right into a Spear after Edge got back onto his feet. Edge barely escaped the match with his title but knows he was so close to losing it.
Randy Orton def. Rob Van Dam, Shawn Michaels, Triple H, John Cena, and Chris Jericho to become the NEW WWE Champion ending RVD's 8 1/2 month reign. Jericho was first to be eliminated after being hit by Sweet Chin Music from Michaels. HBK was then eliminated by Orton via an RKO. John Cena got eliminated by Triple H via sledgehammer shot and Pedigree onto the chamber outside of the ring. Triple H eliminated via Five Star Frog Splash from RVD. RVD eliminated via missed Five Star Frog Splash off of chamber cell and Orton followed it up with an RKO to end the title reign. Survivor Series ends as Orton holds the WWE title high in the air taunting the fans and mainly RVD as he is the one that finally ended the famed title reign.
Jamie Noble def. Jimmy Wang Yang to retain the Cruiserweight Championship. Noble had to resort to the help from Kid Kash as Kash was able to pull on the tights of Yang from the outside while Noble pinned him giving him more leverage and the win.
MVP def. Lashley via the Playmaker after Lashley missed a Spear and collided with the turnbuckle.
Batista def. Hardcore Holly via Batista Bomb in a quick match to get Batista onto the card.
Matt Hardy def. Mr. Kennedy in a non-title match in which Kennedy missed a Mic Check but Hardy was able to hit the Twist of Fate and get the pin fall win over Mr. Kennedy.
Kurt Angle def. Rey Mysterio in a #1 Contender's Match in a friendly contest to set Angle up with a future World-Heavyweight title match. Mysterio went for the 619 but as he leaped off the ropes, Angle grabbed his ankle and locked in the Ankle Lock for the win.
Brian Kendrick and Paul London def. The Mexicools to retain the WWE Tag Team Championships after Super Crazy missed a Moonsault and Kendrick hit Sliced Bread #2 followed by London hitting the London Calling for the win.
Edge def. Kane to retain the World-Heavyweight Championship. Kane came close to gaining the gold after he missed a Chokeslam attempt in which Edge booted him in the stomach and hit a DDT. Edge then ended up hitting Kane with a big Spear to retain the title. Angle came down and stared down Edge to end the match and the night.
Ok noting extraordinary for both Survivor Series and mainly Armageddon. Now we're basically caught up, huh? Lol. Well anyways, I'll be starting this back off on the January 1st Raw. So be looking for that Raw Preview up soon. Feel free to drop some comments but really they aren't necessary as I'm just ready to move onto Raw haha and the Royal Rumble
