Shortly after this the images stop playing as suddenly the screen goes black once more. The narrator’s voice comes back on at this time.

Suddenly more images come flashing across the screen, as now these are just the images of the fans going wild in the arenas as past famous quotes from announcers play.

At WrestleMania Twenty-Three!!!

Shortly after this we head into the arena to see Howard Finkel standing by with Brooke Hogan.

Howard Finkel:
Ladies and gentlemen! Please rise, as here to sing America the Beautiful is Florida’s own Brooke Hogan!!!

Brooke sings a great version of America the Beautiful before we cut out to our second video package of the evening before the show kicks off.

The video package starts off slowly as it shows several superstars in the hallways of the prison shoot that took place in real life WrestleMania 23 promos.

Flashing images of Edge’s highlights in the past WrestleMania’s are shown including him climbing the ladders at WrestleMania 2000 to grab the titles with Christian. Shortly after that it shows Edge spearing Jeff Hardy in mid-air at WrestleMania 17. Once more after that Edge is shown striking Chris Benoit in the back with a steel chair before reaching up and grabbing Money in the Bank before the last clip shows last year’s WrestleMania where he forced his brother to tap out to retain the World Heavyweight title.

Edge:
Shawn I’ve made a lot of WrestleMania memories but tonight Shawn not only will I beat you but also I’ll ruin your little “boyhood dream” once again and make this my favorite WrestleMania memory!!!

Edge is shown in the prison holding his hands up and taunting as if he is ready for a Spear. Shortly after HBK comes on the screen staring right into the camera.

Clips of Michaels debut at WrestleMania all the way up to last year’s WrestleMania are shown.

Shawn Michaels:
Edge you don’t impress me! All you do is run your mouth and tonight I end that whenever the Showstopper stops your show.

We see Edge and Shawn Michaels going face to face in clips from the very first time the match was announced for WrestleMania two months ago.

Edge:
There isn’t a thing that you can say or do that will stop me from beating you senseless…

Shawn Michaels:
I promise you I will end your little run on top…

After this we see WWE champion Randy Orton in the prison hallway doing his ever-famous taunt spreading his arms out.

Randy Orton:
I’ve got enough WrestleMania memories to last a lifetime…

Clips of Orton RKO’ing Foley at WrestleMania XX and then beating The Rock at last years are shown.

Randy Orton:
But I would love it even more if I were to beat you tonight Jericho.

Chris Jericho:
Randy I’ve waited for this moment for five years…

Clips of Jericho’s last main event match at WrestleMania 18 are shown against Triple H.

Chris Jericho:
Five long years Randy…five years that I’ve sat back and not done a thing about it. But tonight I do that…because tonight I stop your run whenever I make you tap out in the middle of that ring!

After this we head back to the prison hallway to see Umaga slapping himself and pumping himself up it seems.

Armando Estrada:
UMAGA! ‘Ju are looking at the man that will end the Undertaker’s undefeated streak at his very first WrestleMania…

Shortly after this clips of Undertaker running rampant through his fourteen opponents he has beaten are shown before we see the Deadman in the hallway. Undertaker does the cutthroat symbol as we hear his voice.

The Undertaker:
Just like the previous ones that have come before him…at WrestleMania…Umaga…will Rest in Peace!!!

We now head into the prison hallway to see Triple H holding his sledgehammer up. Clips of Hunter’s past matches at WrestleMania are shown. Mainly his ones against The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Batista, and Chris Jericho.

Triple H:
It was just bad timing Kurt. I was pissed and you paid the price…

Kurt Angle:
Damn it Hunter! I promise you will not like what you’ve got coming for you at WrestleMania…

Clips of Kurt Angle in the prison are shown with him pulling his straps back and throwing his arms in the air.

Triple H:
Kurt you’ll be lucky if you’re even able to walk out of the arena on your own power when I’m done with you…

Kurt Angle:
Just wait till April first Hunter. You’re not going to be able to walk out because you’ll have a broken frickin’ ankle…

We now head out to see John Cena standing in the prison before he does the Word Life salute.

John Cena:
Finlay you have awoken a beast inside of me…

Finlay:
I won’t back down from a fight…

Finlay is shown standing in the prison wielding his shillelagh swinging it from side to side.

John Cena:
A side that I haven’t even seen before. But at WrestleMania I swear that I will beat the holy hell out of you.

Finlay:
There ain’t a damn chance of you beating me at WrestleMania Cena.

Our final scene of the video of the prison part is shown as Mr. Kennedy is shown holding his hand to the heavens as if he is reaching for a mic.

Mr. Kennedy:
I stole the show last year at WrestleMania but this year I will win my first ever World Championship when I beat you into the ground RVD.

Now we see Rob Van Dam in the prison as he does a spin kick before doing the R-V-D taunt. Right after this we see clips of RVD hitting the Frog Splash on Angle to win the WWE title last year.

Rob Van Dam:
You don’t even care about ECW Kennedy. Last year’s WrestleMania was sweet for me but I plan on making it two for two in World title matches!

Shortly after this the clips of the superstars in the prison speed up.

Shortly after this we head into the arena as the pyro blazes in the arena as Ladies and Gentlemen plays! The fans are going nuts as the camera pans across the arena before we get a good look at the set up. There is no ramp in traditional WrestleMania as it is just a walkway. The titantron is one of the largest in WrestleMania history as right above it is a rather large WrestleMania 23 logo. After this the camera pans across the arena once more before we situate ourselves in front of the commentating teams!

Jim Ross:
Welcome to WrestleMania Twenty-Three! There are 20,191 fans standing up in the American Airlines Arena going nuts and I can tell that we are in for a wild night here at the twenty-third edition of the greatest event in sports entertainment!

Jerry Lawler:

Jim Ross:

Jerry Lawler:
JR I look forward to this night every year because I know that no matter what we are guaranteed one hell of a show!

Michael Cole:
That is right King and Josh the 366 days since WrestleMania 22 has passed and here we are sitting in Miami, Florida for WrestleMania 23!

Josh Matthews:
This is my first WrestleMania to be commentating at ringside and something tells me it’s going to be one wild ridge! Tazz?

Tazz:

Michael Cole:
The fans are standing on there feet because they know they are in for a long night and I know that Smackdown is going to bring a lot to the table!

Josh Matthews:

Joey Styles:
Hello everybody and welcome to WrestleMania 23! I had the privilege of calling it last year with Raw and let me tell you it was the best time of my life! So I know we are in for a big show tonight and I’m going to stop talking so we can go ahead and get this night underway!!!

*The bell rings*

Howard Finkel:

Howard Finkel:
And representing Smackdown…MVP!!!

Match #1
Money in the Bank Ladder Match
Jeff Hardy vs. Ric Flair vs. Charlie Haas vs. Shelton Benjamin vs.
MVP vs. Matt Hardy vs. Rey Mysterio vs. CM Punk

The ref calls for the bell, as all eight men look straight up right now at the briefcase that is hanging high above the ring. All eight men know the significance of the briefcase and what it could do for their careers if they can capture it. Suddenly the action breaks down in the ring as Flair is attacked by Haas and sent to the outside of the ring! Punk greets MVP with a hard knee before he clotheslines MVP to the outside of the ring as well as he follows suit. The Hardy’s both slide to the outside of the ring as they head towards the walkway to grab two ladders. The fans notice that Rey Mysterio and Shelton Benjamin are both still in the ring as they share a look at one another! Benjamin runs over and leaps over the top ropes connecting with a big Plancha landing on MVP and Punk on the outside! Benjamin points in the ring at Mysterio telling him to see if he can do any better! Mysterio makes his way towards the apron on the outside before he bounces off the ropes and hits a Springboard Crossbody landing on Haas and Flair! The crowd is going wild as the match is already breaking down!

The Hardy’s rush into the ring with two ladders as they both slides the ladders into the ring! Both Matt and Jeff roll into the ring and set the ladders up getting ready to climb but Benjamin and Mysterio stop them before they can climb the ladders! Benjamin hits Jeff in the back hard with a right before he grabs Jeff and throws him shoulder first into the turnbuckle! Mysterio quickly dropkicks Matt back first into the ladder as the ladder falls! Matt rolls to the outside of the ring as now we see Mysterio and Benjamin going at it in the ring! Benjamin whips Mysterio off into the ropes but as Mysterio comes back he runs right into a hard tilt-a-whirl backbreaker courtesy of one half of the tag team champions!

Benjamin makes his way over towards the ladder that is already set up underneath the briefcase as he climbs his way up the ladder hoping he can finally realize his dream! Benjamin gets towards the top of the ladder before CM Punk climbs up the ladder! Punk greets Benjamin with some hard rights before somehow Punk lifts his leg up and hits Benjamin in the back of the head with a kick! Punk lifting his leg up caused the ladder to start to teeter before MVP came into the ring and shoved both Punk and Benjamin off of the ladder! The ladder doesn’t send Punk and Benjamin to the outside of the ring but instead they land on their feet in the ring! MVP scoops the ladder up and charges at both Punk and Benjamin hitting them with the ladder as they both fall to the outside of the ring now!

MVP sets the ladder he just used to knock out Benjamin and Punk with in the middle of the ring! MVP climbs his way up the ladder a little bit taunting the fans yelling random stuff just to piss the fans off! MVP gets about three-fourths to the top before up the ladder comes Ric Flair! Flair climbs the ladder pulling MVP down onto the mat in the ring! Flair lights MVP up with some hard chops across the chest! Flair is going wild as he lets out a big WOOO unleashing hard knife-edge chops on the chest of MVP as the fans are enjoying every moment of it! Flair watches MVP stagger out of the corner before he hits MVP with a big chop block and the highest paid star on Smackdown falls down onto the mat in pain.

Flair makes his way over climbing the same ladder that MVP just climbed knowing he might win another title shot! Flair is competing in his first ladder match as he shows a bit of hesitation climbing the ladder but he starts to pick up the speed once he gets closer to the top! Flair reaches out after his fingers scrapped the briefcase but up the ladder runs Charlie Haas! Haas grabs a hold of Flair around his stomach as Flair is trying to hold on for his dear life! The fans are wondering just what in the hell is about to happen as Haas pulls Flair off and hits a German Suplex off of the ladder! The crowd is going nuts as Flair lands on the mat awkward and he rolls to the outside of the ring to lie by the barricade! Haas isn’t moving in the ring right now as he took a brunt of the fall as well. Suddenly we see medics come down to help Flair up but Flair is refusing them.

The crowd is going nuts, as this might be the hottest opener in WrestleMania history. The camera now shows that Rey Mysterio is slowly making his way over towards the ladder but as he gets ready to climb it the Hardy’s pull Mysterio off of the ladder hitting a double Powerbomb. Mysterio’s back connects with the mat as Jeff hits a double leg drop straight to the groin of Mysterio! Jeff tells Matt to bring Mysterio into the corner. Matt Hardy grabs a ladder positioning it in the corner before he throws Rey Mysterio in the corner. Matt then places another ladder on top of Mysterio as he gets down on his back! Jeff charges across the ring and hits a huge Poetry in Motion! The ladders fall down in the ring as Mysterio falls face first on the mat as he pretty much got squashed like a pancake!

Matt points to Jeff as they both grab the ladders and decide to make their ascend towards the top of the ladder! Matt tells Jeff he is going to grab it but Jeff disagrees! Both men are halfway up the ladder arguing about who should retrieve it before we see Benjamin leap onto the top rope and flies across the ring dropkicking the ladder and sending both of the Hardy’s to the outside of the ring! The crowd is going nuts as we see CM Punk slide back into the ring now. Punk starts lighting up Benjamin with a few hard punches and kicks to the sternum before he tries for a big Roundhouse kick onto Benjamin! Benjamin ducks underneath the roundhouse kick before he catches Punk and hits Punk with a big Samoan Drop! Benjamin watches as Charlie Haas slides into the ring as Benjamin and Haas both share a stare down at one another.

Haas points to the ladder as Benjamin shows a smile. Haas grabs the ladder positioning it on the ropes as Benjamin picks up Punk throwing him onto the ladder. Haas holds the ladder that is of course being held on the ropes right now as Benjamin points to Punk on the ladder! Benjamin charges across the ring before he springs off the ropes and comes back leaping over Haas and hitting a big Leapfrog onto the ladder on Punk! The fans are going wild for the classic move that Benjamin and Haas used to do when they were a team! Benjamin and Haas share a quick high five but Benjamin grabs the hand of Haas pulling him towards Benjamin as Benjamin hits a huge T-Bone Suplex sending Haas across the ring! Benjamin shows a sick smile as he grabs the ladder that is laying semi on the ropes now before he places it in the middle of the ring.

Benjamin is making his ascend towards the briefcase once again as he gets towards the top and reaches up as his fingers scrape the briefcase but he gets struck in the back with a steel chair! Benjamin falls down onto the mat as MVP stands over Benjamin holding the chair in the air before looking down at Benjamin. MVP throws the chair down at Benjamin before he walks over repositioning the ladder as he begins to climb now. MVP slowly climbs still taunting Benjamin down low as he gets ready to reach up and grab the briefcase but we notice Rey Mysterio is at the foot of the ladder! Mysterio is trying to pull his way back up but instead he shakes the ladder and sends it falling back first as MVP falls face first into the turnbuckles! MVP falls down onto the mat as now all the men are down in the ring as this might be Mysterio’s chance!

Mysterio slowly grabs the ladder that just fell in the ring as he makes his way towards the top of the ladder. Mysterio is dragging himself up the ladder as it looks like he is still in pain after being squashed in between the ladders. Mysterio tries to reach up but he’s not even close to the briefcase. Mysterio gets ready to climb up higher to grab the briefcase but we notice that Matt positions a ladder right beside Rey’s! Matt climbs up the ladder grabbing Rey and pulling Mysterio off the ladder and hits a huge SIDE EFFECT OFF THE LADDER! The fans are going nuts as Jeff helps his brother back onto his feet, as it doesn’t seem that he hurt himself too bad! Jeff now proceeds to slide out of the ring to waste a bit of time before he reaches underneath the ring and pulls out a twenty-foot ladder!

Jeff slides the ladder into the ring as we see Jeff slowly slide back into the ring. Jeff positions his ladder in the corner as he gets Matt to place a ladder in the corner opposite from him. Jeff points down to Rey as he makes his ascend to the top of the twenty-foot ladder that is nowhere close to the briefcase! Jeff and Matt both look at one another before they jump off the ladders connecting with DOUBLE LEG DROPS! Matt landed on the head of Mysterio as Jeff landed towards his sternum! The fans are going nuts right now as both of the Hardy’s are down in the ring and the next person that can get into the ring may just be the lucky winner of Money in the Bank!

The camera now shows Flair slowly making his way towards getting back into the ring. Flair slides back into the ring walking over towards a ladder. Flair goes to set the ladder up but he gets cut off by Charlie Haas. Haas rams Flair stomach first into the turnbuckle before he throws some hard rights at Flair. Flair catches the fist of Haas before he lights up his rival with a bunch of wild chops! Flair is letting his emotion run wild as he continues to light up the chest of Haas to a beet red color. Flair steps back before he hits a chop block to Haas. The Nature Boy now makes his way over towards the middle of the ring looking to once again climb the ladder. Flair gets about halfway up before Haas rolls back into the ring picking Flair off and throwing him down onto the mat. Haas turns around to see a ladder that slipped and strategically landed in the corner positioned by laying vertically on the top turnbuckle down to the mat. Haas drags Flair into the corner and hits a huge Release Exploder Suplex as Flair falls onto the ladder face and sternum first!

This can’t be good as the medics’ come down and this time they are taking Flair no matter what he says! Haas watches and shows a sick smile as the medics drag the knocked out cold Flair out of the arena on a stretcher! Haas waves to Flair goodbye as a big WOOOO! Breaks out across the arena as Flair makes his exit out of the arena! Haas watched Flair be touted out and he was too distracted because whenever he turns around he runs right into a GTS! Punk knocks Haas out with the Go to Sleep! The fans are going wild as Punk grabs a ladder and moves it towards the middle of the ring. Punk makes his way towards the top rung of the ladder. Punk makes his way towards the top before we see Benjamin place a ladder besides Punk’s just like Hardy did to Mysterio earlier on. Benjamin climbs up his ladder quickly as he attacks Punk in the back before grabbing the Straight Edge Superstar and leaping off the ladder before hitting the Leaping Spike Reverse STO (his finisher on ECW) off of the ladder! The fans watch on in awe, as Benjamin and Punk are not moving now, as it seems Benjamin might have hurt himself more than he did Punk!

The camera now focuses on MVP who is making his way towards the middle of the ring now looking for his one shot at getting the briefcase. All six of his other opponents are left lying in or outside of the ring now, as MVP knows this might be it! He makes his way towards the top rung slowly climbing which is to stall time of course. MVP reaches up as high as he can to try and reach out and grab the briefcase but Jeff Hardy stops him! Hardy clubs MVP in the back and pulling MVP off of the ladder. Jeff rams MVP into the turnbuckle back first before he drops MVP with a Twist of Fate! Jeff tells Matt to hold MVP down in the corner with the ladder. MVP is laying head first in the corner with the ladder positioned in front of him horizontally on the mat. Jeff charges across the ring and hits a ROPE AIDED CORNER DROPKICK INTO THE LADDER WHICH CONNECTS WITH THE FACE OF MVP!

MVP rolls to the outside of the ring now as both Matt and Jeff look at one another as they are going to fight it out here right now to see which one of the Hardy’s deserves to climb up and reach for the briefcase. Jeff clubs Matt in the sternum with a right before he springs off of the ropes and dropkicks Matt. Matt gets back onto his feet before we see Jeff run at Matt. Matt reverses and sends Jeff into the turnbuckles! Jeff is able to climb the turnbuckles and leap off for the Whisper in the Wind but MATT GRABBED THE CLOSEST LADDER AND THREW IT AT JEFF IN MID-AIR! JEFF COMES CRASHING DOWN IN MID AIR AS HE FALLS ON THE LADDER! The fans are going nuts now as a big “Holy Shit” chant breaks out.

Hardy knows that he has to seize the moment now considering that all of the other six men in the ring are down! The fans watch on as Matt Hardy makes his way up the ladder slowly but carefully knowing that one wrong thing could be his downfall. Matt is about three-fourths up before he reaches up trying to grab the briefcase but of course he gets stopped! Haas stops Hardy’s descent to the top as he climbs up the ladder and hits Hardy with a hard right to the face! Hardy looks as if he might fall off the ladder but Haas is able to scoop Hardy up! Haas lifts Hardy into the air looking for a Vertical Suplex off the ladder but Hardy keeps his feet on the ladder! Hardy doesn’t want to take such a long fall but Haas is able to pull him off anyways and he hits the VERTICAL SUPLEX OFF OF THE LADDER! Hardy’s back collides with the mat as well does Haas’s and now all seven men are in trouble!

The fans notice that Mysterio is starting to stir now as he has been down for a while. Little Rey Rey makes his way towards the middle of the ring! Mysterio slowly sets the twenty-foot ladder up in the middle of the ring before he crawls up the ladder a bit slow! Mysterio has taken one hell of a beating in the match tonight as it looks like it might just continue! Shelton Benjamin makes his way up the same side of the ladder that Mysterio is on as Benjamin is going to do his best to prevent Mysterio from grabbing the briefcase. Benjamin sticks his head underneath the legs of Mysterio as Benjamin is still on the mat of course as Mysterio didn’t get too high. Benjamin brings Mysterio crashing down onto the mat with a Powerbomb! Benjamin however is not going to stop there though as he throws a ladder into the corner. Benjamin then proceeds to throw Mysterio back first into the ladder! Benjamin taunts the fans as he charges across the ring and connects with a huge STINGER SPLASH ON MYSTERIO ONTO THE LADDER! The fans are going wild but in the processing booing Benjamin since it seems he might just win the briefcase now!

Benjamin makes his way up the twenty-food ladder as we see a familiar friend of Shelton Benjamin’s run down the ramp! Elijah Burke slides into the ring and tells Benjamin to climb! Burke is watching to make sure nobody comes into the ring as the fans are booing the hell out of Burke and Benjamin right now! Benjamin is getting close to reaching up and grabbing the briefcase but suddenly we see Punk come into the ring as he dropkicks Burke! Burke is pushed into the ladder as a result of this and we see Benjamin go flying off of the ladder as he lands hard on the ropes on his privates! Benjamin flops to the outside of the ring before Punk greets Burke with a good roundhouse kick as Punk then throws Burke to the outside as well!

Punk makes his way to the top of the ladder, as he now knows that this might just be his chance to earn a title shot early on in his career. Punk makes his way to the top of the ladder as he is reaching up trying his best to grab the briefcase but MVP rolls into the ring! MVP shakes the ladder shoving Punk off but Punk lands on his feet! Punk tells MVP to run at him and MVP does naturally! Punk trips up MVP and watches MVP back into the corner! Punk charges at MVP and hits a high knee to the face of MVP before he runs off of the ropes and hits a RUNNING BULLDOG ONTO THE LADDER THAT FELL! MVP’s face collides with the ladder as he might be knocked out cold!

Punk turns around in the corner and notices that Jeff Hardy is back onto his feet now! Punk climbs onto the top rope waiting for Hardy to turn around but as Punk leaps off the top rope looking for the Diving Clothesline Jeff Hardy THROWS A LADDER AT PUNK! Punk falls face first onto the mat as Jeff now points to the briefcase! The fans are going nuts as Jeff looks around the arena and looks set to make his ascent towards the briefcase. Jeff grabs the twenty-foot ladder as he slowly makes his way up the ladder. Hardy is having a troublesome time trying to climb the ladder and he gets about halfway up before he notices that Charlie Haas is starting to move! We see now that Burke is on the outside helping Benjamin back onto his feet as well as Burke slides Benjamin back into the ring.

Hardy continues to climb the ladder as he gets about three fourths up before Haas is at the foot of the ladder. Hardy finally reaches up grabbing the briefcase but Haas pulls the ladder out underneath Hardy! The fans are going wild as Hardy is dangling in mid air! Hardy could damn well be in trouble as there is no way he can grab the briefcase and make it out of there alive! We now notice that Haas is back in the ring as he gets Benjamin back up! Haas throws Benjamin onto his shoulders with the help of Burke as he gets Benjamin to reach up and grab the legs of Hardy! The World’s Greatest Tag Team are working together now! Burke doesn’t know that Matt Hardy is standing behind him as Matt drops Burke with a Twist of Fate! Matt looks ready to break up the little tower thing that WGTT has right now but Matt looks up to see that Rey Mysterio is on a ladder in the corner!

MYSTERIO LOOKS AROUND THE ARENA BEFORE HE LEAPS OFF AND CONNECTS WITH A SEATED SENTON ONTO BENJAMIN WHO WAS ON THE SHOULDERS OF HAAS! The crowd is going nuts now as Benjamin and Haas fall back first and we see that Jeff Hardy is still dangling in mid-air! The fans are going apeshit right now after Mysterio’s insane maneuver. The camera cuts over to show that Rey, Benjamin, and Haas are all down in the corner. Matt positions a ladder by his brother as we see Matt make his way towards the top. Matt knows he is going to have to get his brother off if he wants to win the briefcase tonight. Jeff is desperate to get off of the hook now as Matt reaches over and grabs the legs of Jeff! Matt grabs Jeff looking for possibly a Powerbomb off of the ladder but Jeff swings his legs in the air before he is able to wrap them around Matt’s head! Matt won’t budge as first as he is still hanging onto the ladder but Jeff is able to swing Matt free off of the ladder and hits a SICK HURRICANRANA IN MID-AIR! Matt and Jeff both land awkward in the ring as Matt landed hard on his back while Jeff landed on his knees. It seems Jeff didn’t take as big of a fall as Matt did and Matt might have just had the wind knocked out of him.

We now notice that in the midst of this all that MVP is making his climb towards the top! The crowd is booing this, as since all six men are down in the ring this might just be it if MVP can capitalize and grab the briefcase! MVP slowly climbs up holding his head after that sick and brutal bulldog he took earlier in the match! MVP is about halfway up the ladder before we notice that CM Punk is back onto his feet! Punk runs over before grabbing a ladder and ramming it straight into MVP’s back! MVP falls back first onto the ladder as we see Punk set the ladder up beside the other ladder that MVP was just on!

Rey Mysterio is back onto his feet in the corner. He slowly starts to head over but Charlie Haas grabs him and throws him to the side. Haas pulls himself over towards Punk who is trying to climb the ladder but now we notice that Haas has brought another ladder into the ring that was lying partly out of the ring and he placed it in the corner! Haas drags Punk towards the ladder in the corner and hits the Cloverleaf Catapult Backbreaker sending Punk back first into the ladder! Haas shows a smile as he looks towards the middle of the ring as he makes his way towards the ladder.

Haas looks towards the sky now as he starts to climb the ladder in the middle of the ring. Haas gets closer and closer to realizing his dream as he is inching even closer to that briefcase. Haas gets oh so close but it’s Rey Mysterio that is able to shove Haas off of the ladder! Haas like many others have tonight lands on his feet in the ring. Mysterio scoops the ladder up and charges at Haas knocking him down to the outside of the ring! Mysterio walks over to set the ladder back up in the middle of the ring as we see Mysterio slowly start to make his descent towards the briefcase! Shelton Benjamin quickly grabs Mysterio from behind pulling Mysterio down onto the mat!

Benjamin looks at the ladder where Haas threw Punk at earlier and Benjamin scoops up Mysterio looking to possibly hit a Release T-Bone but Mysterio dropkicks Benjamin off into the ropes instead! Mysterio walks over as he opens a ladder and wedges it in between the ropes in front of Benjamin’s face! Mysterio springs off the ropes before coming back and HITTING A 619 SENDING THE LADDER INTO BENJAMIN’S FACE! Mysterio leaps off of the top rope Droppin Da’ Dime straight onto Benjamin who had the ladder on top of him!

Mysterio makes his way to the big ladder in the middle of the ring as he slowly starts climbing up the ladder. Nobody around him is up because the Hardy’s took a sick only two minutes ago, Punk is down in the corner while Haas is down outside. Benjamin of course just got knocked out and MVP is down in the corner as well. Mysterio is about halfway up as he slowly continues to crawl and he realizes that he might finally grab the briefcase! Mysterio is now three-fourths up as still nobody around him is up! MVP is starting to move in the corner but it’s not going to amount to anything because Rey Mysterio is at the top and he reaches out grabbing the briefcase and the match is now over!

Howard Finkel:
Here is your winner of the Money in the Bank briefcase…REY MYSTERIO!!!

Match Length: 21 Minutes, 36 Seconds

Rey Mysterio rolls to the outside of the ring clutching the briefcase as we see MVP laying down by the ladder looking straight at Mysterio! Mysterio holds the briefcase high in the air as the ref runs out and holds his hand in the air! We notice now that a bunch of the superstars are moving now mainly the Hardy’s as they are getting back to their feet so the next match can be of course prepared for! The crowd watches as Mysterio leaves out of the arena as the fans give a big ovation to everybody who competed in the match, as it was one hell of a match.

Jim Ross:
BY GAWD! I don’t think I’ve ever seen that much carnage before and it just shows you what the WWE superstars will do for a future title shot!

Jerry Lawler:
I must say that was probably one of the hottest WrestleMania opening matches I have ever witnessed before! The fans were on their feet the whole time and there was never a dull moment in the match!

Michael Cole:
King I totally agree with you! Rey Mysterio showed tonight that he was the better man out of his seven other competitors and I’m totally shocked at how this match went down tonight! Never would I have thought I would have seen some of the things that I saw!

Tazz:
Props go out to all eight men that competed tonight but it was my boy Rey Mysterio that left when the smoke cleared! It’s going to be great to see what Rey Mysterio has planned for whatever champion he chooses to go after!

We head backstage to see Todd Grisham.

Todd Grisham:
Ladies and gentlemen! Right now I’d like to introduce you to my guest…the winner of the Money in the Bank Ladder Match…

The crowd pops as they wait for Mysterio to walk in.

Todd Grisham:
Rey Mysterio!!!

Rey Mysterio walks in with the Money in the Bank briefcase by his side. Mysterio holds it up to the fans showing a smile.

Rey Mysterio:
Todd I’ve talked about it for months now. And tonight I’ve finally realized that dreams can come true! Right here I’ve got a future title shot whenever I want and all I know is that I will finally get my title shot that I deserve! I’ve sat back and watched for a while and listened to all the doubters and the critics. They said that “little Rey Mysterio” couldn’t compete with the big dogs! Well they’re wrong and I proved them wrong tonight whenever I won the Money in the Bank Ladder Match!

The crowd suddenly pops as Mysterio waves the briefcase in front of the camera.

Todd Grisham:
Can you tell us what your plans are for the briefcase and when you plan on cashing in?

Rey Mysterio:
Like I said I don’t have a clue whenever I am going to cash in my bri…

A voice is suddenly heard.

???:
I’ll answer that for Rey. You see the answer is never!

The camera pans over to reveal MVP!

MVP:
Rey it’s a joke how a little midget like you could have climbed the ladder and grabbed the briefcase! You damn well know that you stole on from me tonight! There ain’t no reason why I’m not standing here right now as not only the highest paid athlete in WWE history but also as Mister Money in the Bank!

Mysterio looks at MVP as the crowd boos.

Rey Mysterio:
Oh really MVP? Well th…

MVP:
How about you shut up? I wasn’t through talking!

The crowd boos MVP as he looks at MVP and points to the briefcase.

MVP:
You talk about how your little “dream” is going to take place when you cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase but you’ll be lucky if you even get that far with even having it in your possession dawg!

MVP pushes Mysterio lightly as Mysterio steps back a bit. Mysterio stares down at MVP now.

MVP:
If you had any guts Rey you’d put that briefcase on the line against me. But I guess not everybody is like me! I know everybody doesn’t make as much money as me! I know that there isn’t a wrestler better than me! And I know that I am the greatest thing to happen to the WWE. But Rey…you put that Money in the Bank briefcase on the line and well then…

Rey Mysterio:
What MVP? Are you goi…

MVP:
That’s even more money for me!

MVP walks off as he grabs his suit and pulls on it lightly as a diss towards Mysterio. Mysterio looks on in anger as Mysterio stands there with the last shot of the camera focusing on the briefcase.

We now head back into the arena to the Raw commentating team at ringside.

Jim Ross:
Well congrats go out to little Rey Mysterio but now it’s time for the Divas to take the spotlight and King this just might be the most physical divas match in WrestleMania history!

Jerry Lawler:
I’ve been waiting for this match for a while JR and it’s all because of these two strong but good looking divas that are locking up tonight! It’s great!

Jim Ross:
Well when Beth Phoenix made her debut last year she came oh so close to winning the Women’s Championship but about a month afterwards Victoria was able to take the Women’s Championship in July and run with it ever since!

Jerry Lawler:
Somebody has got to stop Victoria? Is Beth Phoenix going to be the person?

Glamazon plays across the arena as out steps Beth Phoenix. Phoenix makes her long walk down the walk way to a decent ovation from the fans. Phoenix slaps hands with the fans as she continues on down the walkway before finally reaching the ring. Phoenix then rolls into the ring before she climbs onto the top turnbuckle.

I have to agree Michael and it’s been a wild month or so since Jamie Noble learned that he was going to have to defend his title against not one but TWO competitors at WrestleMania.

Michael Cole:
Noble has had a long run with the title…as a matter of fact it’s been almost fifteen months since Noble first won the title last year and you know that he does not want to lose it on the grandest stage of them all tonight!

He’s going to have to give everything he has because he truly does have one of his toughest tasks ahead of him tonight!

An even shorter lived pin fall there thanks to Chavo breaking it up this time. Noble gets back onto his feet and gets right back into the face of Guerrero. It’s evident that this little team up strategy is not going to work very long as Chavo gives Noble a friendly push. Noble looks down at London before he shoves Guerrero! Noble and Guerrero are going at it now as both men are hitting one another with hard rights. The ref has to come in between both of them to break the two of them up. Noble charges back at Guerrero once again but Guerrero gets the advantage as he trips up Noble face first into the mat! Chavo looks to the outside of the ring as he climbs onto the turnbuckles. It seems as if Chavo is looking to take a big risk early on but London runs up the ropes! London quickly greets Guerrero with a big kick to the back of the head as Guerrero falls down onto the mat hard with a thud!

London regains his footing as we see Noble getting back to his feet as well as Guerrero stumbling back up since the kick didn’t do much but just throw him off the ropes.

Michael Cole:
Paul London has defied the odds that were stacked against him but he’s secured his second Cruiserweight championship.

Josh Matthews:
That will certainly go down as one of the best Cruiserweight matches in WrestleMania history.

Michael Cole:
No doubt Josh but these three men gave each other their best that they had in the fifteen minutes they went and it created a classic.

Josh Matthews:
I still can’t believe that Jamie Noble’s reign has ended just like that. The fourteen and a half month reign…gone like that.

Randy Orton:
What the hell do you want?

Okerlund walks over as Orton stands up.

Mean Gene Okerlund:
Listen Randy I just want to get a few questions with you concerning your WWE Championship match tonight.

Orton looks at Okerlund as if he knew he was going to ask that.

Mean Gene Okerlund:
So first off Randy we know you and Jericho are certainly no strangers. He be…

Randy Orton:
WHOA! Hold it there Mean Gene. You’d think a “legend” like you would get the facts straight but apparently even you don’t know the truth. You see Chris Jericho has never beaten me one on one in the ring. And it certainly isn’t going to change tonight.

Mean Gene Okerlund:
Look I’m sorry Randy bu…

Randy Orton:
Sorry? You shouldn’t be sorry. You should KNOW your facts before you say something. How a piece of crap like you could even be considered for the Hall of Fame is beyond me!

Mean Gene Okerlund:
You no good son of a bitch!

Okerlund walks out slamming the door as the camera focuses on Orton acting as if he doesn’t even care that Okerlund left.

He’s just like his dad…

Slow Chemical plays across the arena as out steps the Big Red Machine, Kane! Kane sets the flames on fire as in tradition with past WrestleMania’s where he sets the ladders, buildings, etc. on fire this year it’s the palm trees! Of course they get the palm trees out (and more are moved over there so they don’t look scorched) but anyways Kane makes his way down to the ring.

Michael Cole:
Damn it to hell Josh! Batista had to resort to using a steel chair and that is why he has walked away victorious tonight.

Josh Matthews:
I think it all came down to Batista knowing he needed a big win and why not get it on the big stage here?

Michael Cole:
That’s fine and all but you don’t need a damn steel chair to do that! This further proves that the Animal will do anything to win.

Josh Matthews:
That is indeed right Michael but I must say Kane stuck in there throughout despite the beating he received throughout the match.

We head backstage to see Todd Grisham standing by with John Cena.

Todd Grisham:
John I’ve got on…

John Cena:
Todd you can feel it in the air tonight! The environment is crazy and all of these 20,000 plus fans are going nuts because of one person…ME!

The crowd pops as Cena shows a smile.

John Cena:
These fans came here tonight to Miami to witness me give a personal ass whippin’ to that no good sumbitch Finlay. Finlay let me go ahead and make something clear to you. I didn’t come here to be friends with you; I came here on a mission! I came here because I’m going to be the one that ends your short-lived career here in the WWE. I can’t stand you and you can’t stand me but that’s okay because like I said I’ve got this problem taken care of tonight.

Todd Grisham:
John I’ve got one question concerning tonight’s match with Finlay. A few weeks ago Finlay attacked you forcing you to be touted out of the arena on a stretcher. How are you feeling after these attacks?

John Cena:
That woke me up even more Todd! Finlay doesn’t realize how big of a mistake he made just a few weeks ago when he beat the hell out of me with that shillelagh thing or whatever the hell it’s called! He took me out for that moment but he didn’t take me out of the game completely. He didn’t hurt me but he did piss me off! And that is even more reason as to why I’m going to beat his ass into the ground tonight!

The crowd goes nuts as serious Cena is taking over.

John Cena:
See I don’t give a damn what he tries to throw at me…

The crowd pops as Cena is just getting started.

John Cena:
Whether it’s a steel chair…

The crowd pops.

John Cena:
The referee…

The crowd pops once more.

John Cena:
That damn shillelagh…

The crowd pops one final time.

John Cena:
Or even Mini-Me himself

The crowd laughs at the obvious reference to Hornswoggle.

John Cena:
But by god let it be known that if Finlay has the balls then he will go out there and put up the fight of his life. But it won’t mean a damn thing because whenever it’s all said and done…there will only be one man standing!

The crowd pops as Cena stands back and throws up the Word Life symbol.

John Cena:
WORD LIFE!

Cena walks off bolting towards the arena as we cut down to ringside quickly.

Jim Ross:
The time has come King and this damn sure will probably be one of the most heated matches of the night for sure.

Jerry Lawler:
No titles, no gimmicks, it’s just a straight up fight with pride on the line! Finlay wants Cena and Cena wants Finlay!

Jim Ross:
This match has been brewing ever since the Royal Rumble and we’ve waited nearly three months for this brutal encounter to take place.

Jerry Lawler:
Well JR if you’d quit talking maybe we could go ahead and get this big match underway!

My Time is Now hits across the arena as out steps John Cena!

Finlay rolls to the outside of the ring kicking the steel steps in the process knowing that Cena got one over on him right there!

Finlay tried to cheat but in the end it backfired on him and Raw’s John Cena is victorious tonight over Finlay!

Jerry Lawler:
One hell of a match I must admit JR and now that Cena has won he has tied up the score in the Inter-Promotional matches for Raw!

I don’t even think Cena was concerned about that but I certainly have no problem in the fact that Cena put everything he had into the match to win it and give Raw a big win.

Jerry Lawler:
I thought for a while Finlay was going to win but not even his little friend Hornswoggle would be able to help him tonight.

First off let me say it’s great to be here at WrestleMania once again…but this time in the wonderful city of Miami, Florida!

The crowd laughs at the cheap pop as Heyman looks pissed.

Paul Heyman:
I picked you for referee for one reason and one reason only Mick. You’ve got to get that man (points to Mr. Kennedy) what he rightfully deserves and that is the ECW Championship. Listen I know you’re a good friend and all and that is why I’m depending on you Mick or trust me…your life will be a living hell.

Mick Foley:
Paul that’s cool and all but I ne..

Paul Heyman:
I’m serious Mick…

Mick Foley:
I know you are but…

Paul Heyman:
Mick think of it this way. If you don’t do the “right thing”…

Heyman wipes his brow as if he doesn’t want to say it.

Paul Heyman:
There will be serious repercussions.

Heyman points to Kennedy.

Come on Ken let’s go.

Van Dam walks back over towards Mr. Kennedy as he struggles a bit but he is able to get his opponent onto the table. The fans watch as Van Dam slowly pulls himself towards the corner and leaps onto the top rope! Van Dam takes a second to look around the arena and do his thumb taunt this time to E...C…W! The Whole Dam Show leaves off the top rope connecting with the Five Star Frog Splash through the table! Van Dam rolls around the ring in pain after taking a beating on his stomach earlier (via the Singapore cane and the two by four) Van Dam pulls himself towards the middle of the ring where the rubble and Mr. Kennedy are at as Heyman has no choice but to watch on. Van Dam slowly throws an arm over Kennedy as Mick Foley gets down onto the mat. Foley makes the count and this has to be it for Van Dam.

Three…

Howard Finkel: Here is your winner and NEW ECW Champion...Rob Van Dam!!!

Match Length: 15 Minutes, 16 Seconds (150 Min. rule)

Foley is handed the title by the referee as the fans are going wild as Foley helps Van Dam up and holds his hand high in the air! The fans are going nuts as Heyman is losing it. Heyman slides into the ring and gets into the face of Foley. Heyman yells “Damn it Mick, you didn’t do the right thing” as Mick looks on and says “I’m sorry” but Heyman won’t take sorry for an answer. Heyman reaches back to slap Foley across the face before Foley catches him with his hand. Foley reaches into his pants pulling out Mr. Socko! Mr. Socko goes straight into the mouth of Heyman, as finally someone has been able to shut Heyman up! Foley eventually lets go leaving Heyman lying by Mr. Kennedy and all the rubble in the ring as RVD and Foley celebrate the win!

Joey Styles:
What a win for Rob Van Dam and we have our first ECW Champion here since we came back to WWE!

Tazz:
And what a match it was Joe! Both men gave it their all but in the end we knew it was going to be RVD taking it to the extreme and winning one for the Originals!

Joey Styles:
I’m just glad someone was able to make Paul Heyman shut up and I’m still wondering what Heyman means by the right thing?

Tazz:
There really is no telling Joey but well that’s all for us here tonight from ECW so as for me I’m Tazz and he’s Joey Styles…

Joey Styles:
And for ECW we’re signing off. Enjoy the rest of the night!

We now head over to the Smackdown commentating team at ringside.

Michael Cole:
Well the time has come Josh and it’s time for Umaga to face Undertaker and one man’s streak will end here tonight.

Josh Matthews:
Umaga has been undefeated since he stepped into the WWE back at SummerSlam last August and he certainly doesn’t want to lose that streak here tonight.

Michael Cole:
But Undertaker has been undefeated at WrestleMania his entire career and he certainly doesn’t want that ended!

Josh Matthews:
Let’s take a look back and see how exactly this feud got started shall we?

Other Shows:
Umaga received an ominous note with simply the words Casket Match on it. Estrada was confused and showed a bit of concern before bringing it to Mr. McMahon. Mr. McMahon thought weird of it but said that it was a great idea and he made the Casket Match for WrestleMania. Estrada didn’t intend on that taking place as when he broke the news to Umaga, Umaga snapped taking out workers, breaking tables, and throwing food everywhere. The Samoan Bulldozer clearly wasn’t happy with what match he was going to be in at WrestleMania. The notes would continue for weeks as one would say “Rest in Peace” and another said “When you stare into the eyes of the dragon…” Umaga and Estrada acted as if they didn’t know who wrote them but clearly we knew. The Undertaker made an appearance on Raw as Umaga was gone out of the locker room, Undertaker grabbed Estrada by the throat saying “Don’t mess with me at WrestleMania or you will rest in peace”

Howard Finkel:
The following contest is a Casket Match where the object of the match is to roll your opponent into the casket at ringside. Introducing first hailing from the Isle of Samoa weighing in at 350 pounds…he is the “Samoan Bulldozer” Umaga!!!

Finkel gets ready for Undertaker’s entrance but Armando Estrada grabs a mic from the timekeeper.

Suddenly a lightning bolt strikes the stage as out steps the Undertaker! The Deadman slowly makes his way down to the ring clad in his old “Ministry” gear just like at WrestleMania 24. The Deadman stops about halfway down the aisle as flames burst up behind him on the stage. The Deadman then makes his way down to the ring slowly as Umaga is not showing a bit of concern for his well being at all. Slowly the Undertaker gets to the steps as he takes a few steps up before pulling the hat over his eyes and rolling his eyes back in his head! Undertaker steps into the ring before he takes his vest thing off and hands it over to the referee. The referee hands it over to the timekeeper as the lights come back on.

The Undertaker flings his head back looking down towards the ring as if saying that he’s coming back for more in the future as he improves his record to 15-0.

Michael Cole:
The Undertaker remains undefeated here at WrestleMania and Umaga certainly gave Undertaker one of the biggest fights of all his 15 victories here at WrestleMania.

Josh Matthews:
I really thought Umaga stood a good chance at earning the win here tonight but it was all Undertaker at WrestleMania.

Michael Cole:
It can be said that WrestleMania is Undertaker and he certainly showed that as he took out the previously undefeated Umaga!

Josh Matthews:
Undertaker said he was coming back for revenge and that is just what he did here tonight when he got his revenge for what happened at last year’s SummerSlam.

Shortly after the match’s ending we head backstage to see Trish Stratus walking around. The fans let out a big pop, as Trish hasn’t been seen on WWE television since last summer.

Trish Stratus:
Um yes can you tell me wh…

Suddenly in swings The Hurricane? The fans are confused, as we all knew Gregory Helms was the Hurricane but the Hurricane hasn’t been seen on WWE television since late 2005.

The Hurricane:
Great egads…it must be…yes it is!

Trish Stratus:
Um…well….

The Hurricane:
Yes…it is the greatest diva that the WWE has ever seen.

Trish Stratus:
Why thank you Hurricane? But I thought your name now was Gre…

The Hurricane:
SHHHH!

The Hurricane puts his hand over Trish Stratus’ mouth.

The Hurricane:
The Hurricane does not have any clue of whom you speak of? There is only one Hurricane and you are looking at him!

The Hurricane throws his thumb up giving big thumbs up.

Trish Stratus:
Well um if you’d excuse me I n…

The Hurricane:
To find the divas locker room?

Trish Stratus:
Um yeah how did you know?

The Hurricane shows a smile.

The Hurricane:
The Hurricane knows all things. But follow me right this way…

The Hurricane speeds off as Trish slowly walks and suddenly in comes Gregory Helms? The crowd laughs as Helms walks over towards Trish.

Gregory Helms:
Trish…how’s it going?

Trish looks really confused.

Trish Stratus:
I thought you were the Hu…

Helms stops here right there.

Gregory Helms:
Huh? Nah I never was even the H..

Trish Stratus:
Weird. Well okay I want to go talk to all the divas that I haven’t seen in a while so it was nice talking to you.

Gregory Helms:
My pleasure Trish.

Helms walks off as Trish heads towards the locker room. Shortly after we see the Hurricane come running back over towards the camera.

The Hurricane:
Wassupwitdat?

The crowd laughs as the Hurricane leaves off the screen as we head back into the arena to the commentating team from Raw.

Jim Ross:
Well that was rather interesting but right now it’s time for Carlito’s Cabana and we all know that nobody is looking forward to seeing Carlito!

Jerry Lawler:
Come on JR! We’re awful close to the Caribbean Islands so I’m sure there are some fans of Carlito’s whether it’s only his dad or not!

Jim Ross:
But regardless tonight we get to see perhaps the most electrifying man in sports entertainment history make his return as he hasn’t been seen in the WWE since last WrestleMania when he wrestled Randy Orton.

Jerry Lawler:
Enough talking JR! Let’s go ahead and get this monumental talk show rolling! I’m ready to see the Rock!

Cool hits across the arena as out steps Carlito making his way down to the ring. Carlito rolls into the ring with an apple in hand before he slides into the ring to a chorus of boos from the fans. A big “Carlito…” Sucks chants break out as he looks around the arena before walking over and picking up a mic from the hammock.

Carlito:
‘Dat’s not cool!

The crowd boos as Carlito looks around the arena.

Carlito:
But let Carlito tell you what ‘dis cool….

The fans wait wondering just what in the hell he is talking about.

Carlito:
Finally….Carlito has come back…to Miami, Florida!!!

The crowd boos as Carlito tosses the apple up in the air up and down with a slight smirk on his face.

Carlito:
‘Dis a travesty that Carlito doesn’t get to wrestle on the biggest stage of ‘dem all! It’s clearly a joke to make fun of Carlito right? Well Carlito doesn’t stand for jokes! Carlito doesn’t think it’s funny that he’s been ‘de butt of a few jokes recently. But Carlito does find something funny….the Rock’s acting career!

The crowd starts a big Rocky chant which the fans notice Carlito is completely ignoring.

Carlito:
I mean come on…look at some of ‘dees movies the Rock has been in. The Mummy Returns…The Scorpion King…Walking Tall…Gridiron Gang…. and by god perhaps the worst movie Carlito has ever seen…DOOM! It really was DOOM for Carlito because Carlito’s eyes were bleeding after having to watch ‘dat painful movie! But if Carlito had to pick one movie he thinks that the Rock clearly sucked in…

Carlito looks around the arena and then points to himself.

Carlito:
It was Be Cool!

The crowd pops for the Rock’s appearance in Be Cool as a joke as Carlito looks offended.

Carlito:
You see there is only one COOL superstar in the WWE. ‘Der has only been ONE cool superstar in the WWE and it’s me…Carlito!

Carlito raises his hands in the air as if he has just won an award. The crowd laughs at Carlito as if he were a complete moron.

Carlito:
What? Do none of you think Carlito is the coolest superstar in the WWE? I don’t know how you can’t agree with Carlito? Carlito did something other superstars couldn’t do here in the WWE. Carlito went to Smackdown and won the United States Championship in his WWE debut. Then Carlito turned around and won the Intercontinental title on his Raw debut. How many “cool” people can say they did ‘dat?

Carlito once again points to himself as a big “We Want Rocky” chant breaks out.

Carlito:
ONE! And dat’s me!

Carlito walks and takes a seat on one of his stools he has set up in the ring.

Carlito:
But C…

The crowd boos Carlito as Carlito can’t take anymore of it.

Carlito:
Carlito is not going to listen to you imbeciles try to ridicule Carlito. There is only one cool person that has ever wrestled in the WWE and you are looking at him right now!

IF YA SMELL!!! Hits across the arena as out steps Miami’s own the Rock! The Rock makes his way down the aisle clad in a WrestleMania 23 shirt, some nice dress pants and of course his trademark shades. The Rock stops at the top of the aisle soaking up all the cheers from the fans as this arena is going nuts! The Rock makes his way down towards the ring as he stops before looking at Carlito and then climbs up the steps and into the ring. The Rock heads to the top turnbuckle playing to the fans as he throws his fist up before jumping down and looking Carlito straight in the eyes.

The Rock:
First off let me go ahead and get it out of the way. FINALLY THE ROCK HAS COME BACK TO HIS HOMETOWN OF MIAMI, FLORIDA!!!

The fans are going wild for the mention of Miami.

The Rock:
But the Rock knows that no matter where WrestleMania is he’d have his millions…

The crowd yells “and millions”

The Rock:
Of fans yelling as if they don’t give a damn about anybody else but the Rock!

The crowd goes nuts as The Rock shows a smile. Suddenly the Rock pulls his shades off and throws the People’s Eyebrow up at Carlito.

The Rock:
GREAT GOD! What in the hell is that on top of your head?

The crowd laughs as the Rock is obviously making fun of Carlito’s hair!

Carlito:
It’s hair you know Rock! Something that Carlito actually still has on his head and not in ot…

The Rock:
OUCH! That one stung right there jabroni. First off the Rock needs to know a bit about you son.

The crowd laughs as they have a feeling what they know is about to take place.

Carlito:
My name is Ca…

The Rock:
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOUR NAME IS!

The crowd goes nuts as clearly Carlito is getting pissed that he’s being embarrassed on his own show here at WrestleMania.

The Rock:
You see the Rock doesn’t give a damn about your name, your accomplishments, your hair, or what damn shampoo you use to put in there. The Rock only cares about one thing and it’s the people that are watching us right now…

Carlito gets pissed, as he knows the Rock is done talking for then as he starts to speak.

Carlito:
Rocky I’m not going to have you come on Carlito’s show and embarrass him on the biggest show of the year. Dat’s not going to happen and why you ask, because da…

The Rock:
Not cool huh?

The crowd laughs as the Rock obviously knew what Carlito was going to say.

The Rock:
What’s not cool Carlito? The fact that you didn’t even get a match on the WrestleMania card. Or is the fact that you are perhaps the biggest jabroni that has ever stepped foot in a WWE ring and actually thinks that they have talent.

The crowd laughs as Carlito is really getting ticked off now.

The Rock:
Or is it the fact that the fans could give less than two pieces of monkey crap about your candy ass that you are now being compared to the likes of Goldberg…

The crowd boos the mention of Goldberg.

The Rock:
Billy Kidman…

The crowd laughs since Rocky is mentioning names people don’t really care about.

The Rock:
Or hell even the Gobbledy Gooker!

The crowd laughs at the last mention of the name as even the Rock has to share a laugh as Carlito is really getting even further pissed off.

Carlito:
Carlito is the coolest superstar in the WWE Rock because I did something that’s never been done before and ‘dat was on my Smackdown and ‘den Raw debuts I won the United States title and ‘den I won ‘de Intercontinental title? Can you say you did ‘dat Rocky? Carlito didn’t think so.

The Rock looks kind of offended but it’s clear he’s just playing it off.

The Rock:
Nobody gives a damn about your second rate debut because when the Rock debuted he had all of these people behind him. Immediately when the Rock grabbed the mic he got the attention of all these screaming fans! The Rock knew how to entertain a crowd and still to this day the Rock is the biggest thing to hit the WWE! The Rock says that if you know what’s good for you you’ll shut your damn mouth and know your role!

The Rock throws the back of his palm towards the face of Carlito as Carlito doesn’t look intimated but instead walks over towards the bucket of apples he has by the hammock.

The Rock:
Just what in the blue hell do you think you are doing? The Rock didn’t come to WrestleMania to see you play with fruit. No the Rock came to WrestleMania because the Rock knew that the fans wanted to see the People’s Champ once again! Now the Rock knows that you like playing with other men’s “fruit”… but the Rock certainly doesn’t swing that way so don’t be over there fondling my fruit!

The crowd laughs as Rock walks over and grabs an apple. Carlito grabs one and tosses it in the air. A big Rocky chant breaks out as Rock takes a minute as he lets out a big smile and continues on.

Carlito:
Rocky you’re nothing but talk. You realized ‘dat your career was dwindling down and you knew that Carlito was training to come up here in ‘de WWE. Good call on your part because like Carlito said earlier. ‘Der is only room for one superstar here in de’ WWE and you need to make way because it’s Carlito’s time now!

The crowd boos Carlito as the fans are further angering Carlito.

Carlito:
Nobody gives a damn about what you fans think. Carlito knows ‘dat he is the hottest superstar here on ‘da roster now…

The Rock:
Oh is that so Carlito? Well the Rock says that if you were the coolest and the “hottest” superstar on the roster then wouldn’t you be main eventing WrestleMania just like the Rock did each and every damn year he wrestled at it! See The Rock knows all about you Carlito and the Rock knows that you are definitely not the “coolest” superstar here as you claim to be. The Rock says first off to be cool you’ve first off got to actually like poontang pie…

The crowd laughs as another big Rocky chant breaks out.

The Rock:
But tha…

Carlito:
Rock, I’m sick and damn tired of all this jokes. ‘Dees jokes are not funny…’dees jokes suck! We know Carlito likes poont…

The Rock interrupts Carlito as clearly Carlito is at the point that he just wants to give up.

The Rock:
The Rock could give a damn about all of these lies that you are saying. It’s clear that you Carlito clearly like strudel. But don’t take your frustrations out on the Rock, Carlito. Just stay as far away from the Rock as possible!

The crowd laughs as Carlito looks down at the apple and takes a bite of it.

The Rock:
The Rock says that if you even think about spitting that damn apple at me that I will take this right boot off, turn it sideways, and stick it so far up your candy ass that you won’t be able to be at next year’s WrestleMania! So the Rock suggests that you put that apple down or the Rock is going to have to….

The crowd is getting ready for another one of Rock’s catchphrases.

The Rock:
LAYETH THE SMACKETH DOWN….

The Rock’s fans are yelling along with him as he stops for a moment as Carlito is chewing up the apple right now.

The Rock:
ON YOUR CANDY ASS!

The Rock watches as Carlito looks straight at The Rock. Carlito goes to spit the apple at the Rock but the Rock ducks. Carlito swings at the Rock but the Rock catches Carlito’s right arm.

The Rock:
The Rock says you just made a big mistake.

The Rock hits Carlito right in the face hard with a right hand as Carlito is trying to fight off the Rock. Carlito runs at the Rock once more but Carlito gets drilled with a kick to the boot! The Rock kicks Carlito straight in the gut and hits a big Rock Bottom! The fans are going nuts as Rock stands over Carlito and does the People’s Eyebrow once more acting as if he is intrigued by the situation. The Rock takes off his armband and throws it into the crowd before he runs off the ropes and back and connects with the People’s Elbow! The fans yell as The Rock stands over Carlito grabbing the mic one more time.

The Rock:
IF YA SMELLLLLLLLLL…

The Rock pauses for it.

The Rock:
What the Rock….

And the fans yell along with Rock for the last two words.

The Rock:
Is cookin….

If Ya Smell hits across the arena as the Rock makes his way out of the arena! The fans are almost blowing the roof off with the reception that he received here tonight from the fans as he slowly walks up the aisle! The Rock stops to cherish the moment for a bit as he slaps hands with fans making his way up the aisle. The fans really are enjoying this moment as the Rock stops at the top of the ramp and looks around the arena at the 20,000 plus fans! The Rock throws up his right arm holding it high as he slowly turns his back and heads behind the titantron. One more big “Rocky” chant breaks out as we head over to the Smackdown commentating team at ringside.

Jim Ross:
It was great to see the Rock once more here in the WWE and big thanks goes out to him for taking time out of his busy schedule to join us this weekend in Miami!

Jerry Lawler:
I thought it was also great seeing the Rock back and hopefully we’ll be able to see him once again in the WWE in the near future.

Jim Ross:
Well only three matches remain King and all three of them are certainly going to be blockbusters here tonight!

Jerry Lawler:
Indeed they are and speaking of matches let’s head backstage to see Mean Gene Okerlund right now.

We head backstage to see Mean Gene Okerlund standing in front of the interview area.

Mean Gene Okerlund:
I’m Mean Gene Okerlund and right now please welcome my special guest…he is the World Heavyweight Champion Edge!

Edge walks in throwing the World Heavyweight Championship over his shoulder as he takes his sunglasses off and looks straight into the camera.

Edge:
Tonight’s the night Mean Gene. Tonight is the night that just like last year I walk in with the World-Heavyweight Championship and I walk out with the World Heavyweight Championship. Last year I took on my brother Christian and I said I was going to walk out with the title in tact and that’s just what I did! This year is no different. Just because I’m facing a legend doesn’t mean a damn thing to me! I’m a two time World Champion for a reason because I don’t back down from any challenges and I won’t back down from Shawn Michaels.

Okerlund intervenes wanting to ask some questions to Edge.

Mean Gene Okerlund:
First off Edge thanks for joining me now at this time. Secondly I’d like to remind all of the fans that this is your sixth WrestleMania and up to now you are undefeated with a record of 5-0. You’ve won two Tag Team Titles at WrestleMania, won the Money in the Bank Ladder Match and then last year of course you retained your title. So ho…

Edge:
Let’s cut to the chase Mean Gene. I don’t like to brag but the Rated R Superstar is perfect in everything he does. Whether it’s wrestling, chasing the ladies…

The crowd laughs thinking about Lita being here in the WWE when she dated Edge.

Edge:
Or winning at WrestleMania. I’m unstoppable!

The crowd boos as Edge smirks before Mean Gene carries on.

Mean Gene Okerlund:
Are there any final comments you want to make towards Shawn Michaels?

Edge stops for a moment trying to think of something to say.

Edge:
Shawn Michaels?

Edge ponders for a moment as he finally thinks of something.

Edge:
You know they say that Shawn Michaels is Mr. WrestleMania. I mean if you think about it he’s done pretty much everything there is to do at WrestleMania. He’s beaten Bret Hart in an Iron Man match, he’s stolen the show with Kurt Angle and Chris Jericho, he’s retained titles and many other things but there isn’t one thing that he has done! He hasn’t faced me at WrestleMania! He hasn’t beaten me at WrestleMania and he sure as hell won’t tonight!

The crowd boos as Edge keeps on talking.

Edge:
All of you morons out there need to realize that this is not 1992. Nobody could give a damn about Shawn Michaels now in the locker room. Face it Shawn is an old dried up talent waiting for somebody to put him out of his misery and tonight I do that for him! Tonight I do what I’ve been setting out to do for three months…

Edge smirks once more as he’s getting ready to end this.

Edge:
Tonight I finish off Shawn Michaels once…

Edge stops for a second.

Edge:
And for all!

The World-Heavyweight Champion makes his way towards the arena as we head over to the Smackdown commentating team at ringside.

Michael Cole:
Well the time has come Josh! It’s time for the World-Heavyweight Championship to be decided!

Josh Matthews:
All right! We’ve been waiting all night for this epic match to take place and we’re just about ready to get this thing rolling!

Michael Cole:
This is bound to be perhaps one of the biggest title matches that Smackdown has put on at WrestleMania to date and something tells me that Edge and HBK are not going to let us down tonight in the ring either!

Josh Matthews:
Edge certainly has been running his mouth for a while so now it’s time for him to put up…or shut up!

Metalingus plays across the arena as Alterbridge is on stage playing the song. Edge slowly walks out towards the aisle as he stops and walks over towards Alterbridge! Edge looks around the arena before he walks right back to the middle of the aisle before stopping and throwing his hands up as he sets his pyro off! Alterbridge continues playing as Edge marches down towards the ring with a purpose as he slides into the ring and looks around before taking his title off! Edge holds the title high in the air taunting the fans before he throws it on his shoulder waiting for the match to begin.

Howard Finkel:
The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is for the World Heavyweight Championship! Introducing first the champion from Toronto, Ontario, Canada weighing in at 250 pounds….Edge!!!

Sexy Boy hits across the arena as HBK comes strolling out onto the stage. HBK stops at the top of the ramp before kneeling down to pray. The Heart Break Kid then makes his way down the aisle before heading towards the ring and walking up the steps. HBK looks straight at Edge the whole time that this is happening as he gets into the ring and plays to the fans before jumping off the turnbuckles and facing Edge.

Howard Finkel:
And the challenger from San Antonio, Texas weighing in at 225pounds…he is the winner of the 2007 WWE Royal Rumble…Shawn Michaels!!!

Match #8
World Heavyweight Championship
Edge (c) vs. Shawn Michaels


The ref calls for the bell as Edge and Shawn Michaels stand in the ring looking at one another for a while. Edge and HBK slowly start to circle around one another but both men refuse to stop looking at one another. Edge and HBK both head towards the middle of the ring where they meet up and lock up with a collar and elbow tie up. Both Edge and HBK are trying to lobby for an advantage in the match but neither man can seem to get an advantage. The referee has to come in between the middle of them breaking it up as both Edge and Michaels back off of one another.

Edge and Michaels both head back towards the middle of the ring before locking up once more as this time Michaels was able to get the advantage and push Edge off into the corner. Edge pulls himself up with the help of the turnbuckles, as he looks a bit pissed now. Edge sees that HBK is pretty much just toying with him to get the match started off with and this is pissing the champion off clearly. Edge doesn’t let it fully get to him though as heads back over towards HBK and this time hit Michaels hard in the sternum with a big right. Edge forces HBK over towards the turnbuckles now as the World Heavyweight Champion steps back before striking HBK in the sternum with a big shot using his head.

Edge pushes against HBK before sending him off via Irish whip off into the opposing turnbuckles. Edge charges into the corner at Michaels and he connects with a big clothesline that sends Michaels rallying out of the corner. HBK backs right into the arms of Edge who hits a simple and quick but effective DDT on the challenger. Edge throws Michaels over on his side making the first cover of the match it seems.

One…

T…

Michaels quickly kicks out with force as Edge doesn’t waste time and gets right back onto the action not wanting to take a break at all. Edge knees HBK in the back a few times trying to soften up his challenger before he brings Michaels back onto his feet. HBK gets thrown against the ropes as Edge kicks him in the sternum once more before Irish whipping him this time off of the ropes. Edge charges across the ring at Michaels but Michaels wises up and pulls the ropes down causing Edge to go stumbling to the outside of the ring! HBK quickly looks at Edge on the outside as he gets up with the help of the ropes! Michaels looks down at Edge before leaping over the top rope with a Diving Crossbody to the outside and he connects landing hard right on the champion!

The fans are going wild as Michaels picks Edge back up before throwing him right back into the ring. HBK climbs onto the apron as Edge tries to make a swipe at the feet of Michaels but HBK moves and then gets back into the ring. HBK backs Edge over into the corner before hitting Edge with a big backhand chop as Edge grabs at his chest. The World Heavyweight Champion is already starting to take some pain from Michaels as Michaels hits Edge with another backhand chop. Michaels hits him with the third and final one as Edge holds the ropes hard wincing in pain. HBK leans against Edge before sending him off into the ropes via Irish whip. Edge charges across the ring at Michaels as HBK comes running back at Edge! Edge ducks underneath Michaels before he quickly grabs the head of HBK pulling him in and hitting a Falling Reverse DDT! Edge throws Michaels over on his side making another pin fall cover.

One…

Two…

Edge thinks he’s about to lose it as the ref tells him that it was only a two count. The World Heavyweight Champion pulls himself back up with the aide of the ropes before walking back over to HBK and standing over him! Edge mocks Michaels doing the muscle pose where HBK stretches out and flexes! The fans boo as Edge gets immediate heat for these actions before he walks back over to Michaels picking him up by the head. Edge locks in a headlock before HBK pushes him off into the ropes. Edge watches as he charges back at Michaels but ducks underneath a clothesline attempt from the Heart Break Kid! Edge quickly swings Michaels around before ramming him back first into the turnbuckles once more. Edge stands back throwing some wild rights at the challenger, as the referee has to walk over to Edge and restrain him from Michaels! After the ref gets done warning Edge he simply walks back over to HBK pulling him out of the corner.

Edge picks up Michaels placing him onto the turnbuckles. HBK gives up a good fight trying to keep Edge away from him but Edge clubbed HBK with another hard right sending the challenger reeling on the turnbuckles. Edge slowly walks over to Michaels picking him up off of the turnbuckles and holding him up in mid-air in the middle of the ring! Edge goes to bring HBK crashing down with the Electric Chair Facebuster but HBK rolls through and grabs the legs of Edge! HBK has a cover on Edge as the referee runs over making the count.

One…

Two…

Edge kicks out with authority as if he is going to lose the title he’s not going to lose it like that. Edge pulls himself up with the help of the ropes as Michaels walks over and kicks Edge up while he is still down on the mat. HBK picks Edge back up before sending him off into the ropes once more via Irish whip. Edge charges off the ropes and collides with Michaels hitting a big Spear! The fans boo as Edge looked to capitalize but HBK wisely rolled to the outside of the ring meaning that Edge can’t pin him since he’s not in the ring. Edge quickly gets back onto his feet scrambling towards the outside as he is trying to get HBK back into the ring to make the cover.

The World-Heavyweight Champion picks Michaels back up before trying to throw him back into the ring. Instead it’s HBK who is able to flip Edge over via Back Body Drop onto the mat on the outside as Edge’s back collides with the mat rather hard as a thud is heard around the arena. Michaels picks Edge back up before throwing him right back into the ring. HBK quickly slides back into the ring as he picks Edge back up. Michaels once again sends Edge off into the ropes via Irish whip but this time he charges back at Edge and hits the Lou Thesz Press and connects with some rights sending Edge rolling across the ring.

Edge rolls over towards the corner pulling him up with the help of the ropes. Michaels slowly pulls himself back up as he makes his way over to the corner and starts stomping away at Edge in the bottom corner. The fans watch as Michaels picks Edge back up and throws Edge onto the top turnbuckle just like Edge did to Michaels earlier in the match. HBK climbs the ropes now picking Edge up, as it seems that Michaels is trying for a Superplex but Edge instead is able to throw HBK back down onto the mat. Michaels stumbles on the mat before pulling himself back up and as he turns around Edge leaps off the top ropes with a Missile dropkick knocking HBK back down onto the mat with a thud. Edge scrambles over towards HBK making another cover in the match as he hopes that this is it.

One…

Two…

Edge slaps the mat in anger, as another chance at regaining the title is gone once again. He continues to come so close but he is yet to get a three count during the match. This doesn’t stop the World Heavyweight Champion from getting his mind off the game as he simply walks back over to Michaels pulling him back onto his feet. Edge greets Michaels with a few hard rights to the sternum before he Irish whips Michaels off into the ropes. Both Edge and Michaels come charging at one another in the middle of the ring before they meet in the middle and both hit one another with a huge Double clothesline knocking both men down to the mat. The ref looks on not knowing what to do for a second before he begins the ten count.

One…

Two…

Three…

Four…

At this time Edge and HBK are slowly pulling themselves back onto their feet.

Five…

Six…

Both Edge and Michaels are on a knee now.

Seven…

Ei…

Edge and HBK are both completely back up now as they both meet one another in the middle of the ring and exchange clubbing blows. Edge hits Michaels with a hard right before HBK rares back and gives Edge a dose of his own medicine with a hard right of his own! The fans watch on as Edge finally takes the advantage with a knee to the sternum before he drags Michaels over to the corner and slams his head off of the turnbuckles! The fans are booing Edge now as Edge raises his hands in the air acting as if he has just retained the title. But Edge knows he has to get back to work now as he grabs the leg of Michaels holding it in the air as HBK is leaning against the ropes.

Edge wrenches and twists the leg of HBK before he hits it hard with a big right! Edge continues doing this until Michaels wises up and kicks Edge off of him. Edge stumbles back as HBK runs at Michaels but Edge catches Michaels with a drop toehold! Edge keeps the leg hooked as he is bending the leg out of shape! The fans watch as Edge grabs the other leg locking in the Edgecator! Edge has his deadly submission hold locked in on HBK as HBK might have to give the match up right here because it doesn’t seem that Michaels will be able to get to the ropes. The fans start a big HBK chant, as Michaels is desperate to get to the ropes.

HBK slowly starts crawling towards the ropes but Edge continues to make his way back to the middle of the ring! Edge is not going to let HBK grab the ropes at all! Michaels slowly makes his way once again over towards the ropes as he reaches out and almost grabs them! The fans are going wild as Michaels reaches out once more and finally is able to get a hold of the bottom rope! The referee starts the five count towards Edge warning him to break the hold.

One…

Two…

Three…

Four…

Fi…

Naturally Edge breaks it right when he is supposed to therefore meaning the match must continue on since Michaels got the bottom rope. Edge drags Michaels back over to the middle of the ring before he slaps HBK right square in the face! The fans boo these actions as Edge yells “Shut up” towards all of the fans. Edge drags Michaels back onto his feet before he goes to ram HBK once again into the turnbuckles but HBK instead moves out of the way before throwing Edge shoulder first into the steel pole! The World Heavyweight Champion stumbles out of the corner and runs right into the arms of Shawn Michaels as Michaels hits Edge with a scoop slam! HBK is starting to feel it now as Edge turns around and runs back once more into the Inverted Atomic Drop from the challenger! Michaels runs off the ropes and hits Edge with the Flying Forearm Smash before he kips back up after a few seconds! The fans are going nuts as HBK looks down at Edge in the middle of the ring.

HBK is starting to get pumped up as the fans feel the match might be nearing it’s end very soon if Michaels is able to finish off Edge here soon. HBK points towards the top rope as he makes his way over to the turnbuckles. Michaels slowly climbs up the turnbuckles as the camera shows Edge is still down in the middle of the ring. HBK is now standing on the top rope as he looks around the arena and looks set to jump before Edge jumps up showing he was playing possum and shakes the ropes forcing Michaels to fall! Edge walks over to Michaels as HBK is bent over on the top rope before Edge pulls him out towards him. In other words only HBK’s feet are touching the ropes as Edge has HBK’s head under his arm (ala Orton’s DDT on the ropes) Edge pulls Michaels up a bit before he hits the INVERTED EDGECUTION OFF THE TOP ROPE! Edge rolls Michaels over making the cover as it seems Michaels might be out of it after that sick move.

One…

Two…

Thre…

FOOT ON THE ROPE BY MICHAELS! The fans are in awe as Michaels is showing heart to kick out of that deadly move! The fans don’t know what to expect next as Edge heads over towards the corner getting ready to set up for the Spear! Edge is yelling and is foaming at the mouth at the opportunity of ending the match right now! The World Heavyweight Champion is jumping up and down at this time as he sees Michaels get back onto his feet! Edge charges into the corner at Michaels but HBK was too smart as he stumbled out of the corner as Edge almost ran into the turnbuckles. But Edge quickly stopped himself from hitting the turnbuckles once again!

Michaels grabs Edge as he turns around and Edge runs right into a DDT from HBK! Michaels picks Edge up before he leans against him and Irish whips Edge off into the ropes. Edge comes charging back at Michaels but Michaels ducks underneath the arm of Edge before he spins around and hits a Spinning Neckbreaker onto Edge! Michaels throws Edge over making only his second cover so far in the match.

One…

Two…

Th…

Michaels grabs at his head still feeling the effects from the Edgecution earlier in the match as he isn’t looking as quick as he was earlier in the match. The fans see Edge roll to the outside of the ring before he comes back into the ring with his title! Edge drops it, which gives the ref time to walk over and hand the title back to Finkel. HBK at this time just happened to be tuning up the band and Edge turns around to see Michaels coming at him before Edge ducks and just at this time the referee happened to turn around! HBK HITS THE REF WITH SWEET CHIN MUSIC as the referee falls down onto the mat! Edge spins HBK around dropping him with a low blow!

Edge falls down onto the mat taking a well-deserved break before we see Christian hit the ring? The fans haven’t seen Captain Charisma in a WWE ring since August when he was “fired” by Mr. McMahon. Christian walks in looking at Edge who he fought at last year’s WrestleMania, as it seems as if he is going to attack Edge! The fans are yelling, “Do it” repeatedly as Christian helps Edge back up but doesn’t hit Edge! Instead they both put the boot to Michaels! The fans are booing the hell out of the two brothers as Christian shows a smirk and slaps his chest in the middle of the ring! Edge checks to make sure the referee isn’t getting back up before Edge yells at Christian to “do it” Christian drags HBK back onto his feet trying for the Unprettier before Michaels shoves Christian off into the ropes!

Michaels tries to run at Christian but Edge grabs Michaels by the head pulling him in closer towards Edge as Edge hits the Edge-O-Matic! Normally Edge would cover but of course he can’t! Instead Christian comes over and hits the Unprettier on Michaels dropping HBK in the middle of the ring! The referee starts to stumble now as Christian runs and makes his way up the aisle before the referee can disqualify Edge not that it would matter since Edge would retain the title. Edge walks over towards the referee trying to help the referee up but the ref won’t get up! Edge kicks the referee as the referee finally does come over to make a pin fall count.

One…

Two…

Thre…

What the hell? Edge starts to pull his hair out as apparently HBK got his shoulder up despite the Unprettier and Edge-o-Matic he took moments ago. But you’ve got to remember the referee was down for a bit so this might have been why HBK had enough strength to muster out of the pin fall. Edge heads over to the corner once more teasing Michaels for another Spear! Edge lines Michaels up as HBK is heading towards the ropes trying to pull him back up once more! Edge charges at Michaels but instead Edge runs right into Sweet Chin Music? No Edge instead clotheslines Michaels to the outside after he ducked the Sweet Chin Music but of course HBK skins the cat! But right after HBK turned around after he had skinned the cat he ran right into a Spear from Edge! Edge hit his third spear of the match and that has to be it as Edge exploded on HBK with great velocity! Edge quickly throws Michaels over taking advantage of the move he just pulled! The referee quickly runs over slapping the mat and making the count, as this should be it for Edge.

One…

Two…

Three…

Howard Finkel:
Here is your winner and STILL World-Heavyweight Champion…EDGE!!!

Match Length: 15 Minutes

Edge is awarded the title after he hit the sick spear after skinning the cat as Michaels is still laying in the ring. Edge walks out towards the outside of the ring as the fans chant, “This is bullshit” referencing to Christian interfering earlier in the match and the referee not knowing about it. Edge heads up the aisle throwing up the corna (his hand symbol) as he holds the title high as the fans are booing the ever-living shit out of him. The last final images we see are Edge holding the title in the air and Michaels laying in the ring looking at Edge as we head over to the commentating team.

Michael Cole:
Had it not been for Christian something tells me that we would have a new champion here tonight!

Josh Matthews:
I had no clue Christian was even backstage here tonight so he must have just arrived prior to this match!

Michael Cole:
The fact of the matter is that Edge had to call in his brother to come help him and why? Because Edge is a coward that is not able to fight his own battles!

Josh Matthews:
And I couldn’t think of a reason why Christian would attack HBK but it just reminded me that Christian was the one that was eliminated by Michaels last year in the Steel Cage Showdown at SummerSlam leading to Christian being fired from Raw!

Michael Cole:
I still can’t believe it…damn it!

We head backstage to see Todd Grisham running over to Christian as Christian is trying to make his way out of the arena.

Todd Grisham:
Christian…Christian!

Christian turns around as Todd is finally able to stop him.

Todd Grisham:
Christian? Can you tell us why you chose to int…

Christian:
Interfere in the match huh? Well it’s pretty simply Todd. That no good piece of crap Shawn Michaels got me fired last summer and ever since then I’ve been plotting, scheming a way to get back at him! That’s just how Captain Charisma is and when my brother Edge called me up…I knew I had to take his offer!

Todd Grisham:
What offer are you referring to Christian?

Christian:
See when I got fired I only got fired from Raw. I didn’t get fired from Smackdown and that’s why Captain Charisma is coming back to Friday Nights baby!

Todd Grisham:
So now that you are back what are you…

Christian:
Todd I don’t have much time but just let it be known that Shawn Michaels is a walking Deadman. I hope we hurt his ego so bad that he has to retire from the WWE. Shawn Micahels can’t stand losing and thanks to me…That’s just what happened to him tonight! It hurts Shawn’s ego when he’s not number one! Now that Shawn’s out of the equation….I’m making my descent back to the top of the WWE.

Todd Grisham:
Why a..

Christian:
Why Todd? Because that’s how I roll!

Todd Grisham:
Eh we…

Christian:
I’m not done talki…

Edge walks into the scene hugging his brother as he crowd lets out a big boo.

Edge:
There you are! Thanks!

Christian shows a smile as Grisham walks out of the scene.

Christian:
No problem.

Edge:
Listen I owe you something big. I don’t know what it is yet but hey let’s go celebrate out on the town!

Christian:
Let’s go.

Edge and Christian walk off towards a limo that is waiting for them as we see Edge get in and Christian get in as well. Apparently there are a bunch of ladies already sitting in the limo as Edge and Christian speed off before we head back down to ringside.

We head back into the arena to the Smackdown commentating team once again.

Michael Cole:
Well the time is here and right now we are about to witness probably the most personal fight on the card tonight!

Jerry Lawler:
It’s good to be here with you Cole and let me go ahead and say that I have a feeling that Triple H will not lay down for Kurt Angle no matter what happens in this match.

Michael Cole:
Well enough talking King. Let’s take a look back at how we got to where we are right now before this match gets underway.

**********

Video Package for Kurt Angle vs. Triple H

Kurt Angle comes into the ring to announce that he will be out of action until April 1st. Triple H brutally attacks Angle with a sledgehammer hitting him in the shoulder rather viciously sending a message to Angle but why?

Angle stumbles out onto the stage to distract Triple H long enough for Jericho to force HHH to submit and move onto WrestleMania.

Triple H states that on Raw that Angle is more worried about himself, and that he is really only concerned about getting the title back. Triple H also takes about how Angle likes to run his mouth, etc. which Angle says sounds like Triple H is talking about himself.

Angle and Triple are continued to be shown bickering even more during a few episodes of Raw and Smackdown. The video continues to show them getting in one another’s face and mainly focuses on Angle’s attack by Triple H with the sledgehammer shot, etc.

**********

Time to Play the Game hits across the arena as out steps the Game Triple H! Triple H walks down the ramp rather slowly with a purpose as he heads down staring down all of the fans. Triple H walks down the aisle as he looks around and walks up onto the apron. He spits the water in the air before heading into the ring and throwing up the ten fingers signaling his ten title reigns. Triple H jumps down as he looks around the arena waiting for Angle to come out.

Howard Finkel:
The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first from Greenwich, Connecticut weighing in at 260 pounds…he is the “Game” Triple H!

Medal Remix plays across the arena as out steps Kurt Angle! He walks to the stage and sets off his red, white, and blue pyro! The Olympic Gold Medallist walks down the aisle clutching at his shoulder showing that it might be a problem during the match. Angle stares down Hunter the entire way down the aisle before he climbs up the steps and into the ring. Triple H looks at Angle as Angle doesn’t even bother tonight to climb the turnbuckles and play to the fans but instead is ready to get the match started.

Howard Finkel:
And his opponent from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania weighing in at 250 pounds…he is Kurt Angle!

Match #9
Inter-Promotional Grudge Match
Triple H vs. Kurt Angle

The ref calls for the bell as both Hunter and Angle both head to the middle of the ring. Both men stare a brief and quick stare down before we see Triple H and Angle lock up in the middle of the ring with the collar and elbow tie up. But that is quickly broken up whenever Hunter kicks Angle in the sternum before he starts to deliver some hard rights to the shoulder of Angle that had been injured for the past few months. It’s clear what Triple H is setting out on doing tonight and that is clearly going to be focusing on the previously injured shoulder of Kurt Angle.

Hunter is quick to apply pressure to the shoulder as he hits it once more with a few hard rights before he opts to Irish whip Angle off into the ropes. Angle comes charging back at Triple H before Triple H hits Angle hard in the sternum with a big right! Angle falls down onto the mat as Triple H kicks him while he is done! Angle is having a hard time finding his ground in his first match in about two and a half months. It’s clear that the Olympic Gold Medallist’s mind is not in the match for right now! But Angle isn’t going to let Hunter get the best of him right now as he slowly starts to fight back with some hard rights but Triple H hits a hard right sending Angle back down onto the mat.

Triple H leans against Angle on the turnbuckles as he goes to Irish whip Angle off into the ropes but Angle reverses and instead sends Hunter off into the ropes! Hunter comes running back at Angle but Angle trips Hunter up with a drop toehold! Hunter quickly gets back onto his feet before Angle trips Triple H up once again, this time with a double leg takedown! Angle gets revenge for earlier in the match when he spins around and toys with Triple H by slapping him in the head and trying to prove a point to Hunter. The fans cheer Angle on as they watch Angle slowly get back onto his feet as Triple H slaps the mat in anger.

Triple H pulls himself back onto his feet as Angle meets him in the middle of the ring. Angle this time gets the advantage by driving Hunter back first into the turnbuckles. Angle rares back throwing some hard rights at Triple H but Triple H was able to block one before he picked Angle up and rammed Angle back first into the turnbuckles! The fans boo Hunter as he stands back before charging into the corner and hitting Angle hard with a knee to the sternum. The ten time champion pulls Angle out of the corner before picking Angle up and hitting a Belly to Back Suplex dropping Angle on his side before throwing Angle over and making his first cover of the night.

One…

Tw…

Angle quickly kicks out. Triple H drags Angle back onto his feet in an attempt to try and continue beating down Angle but Angle was able to send Triple H to the outside whenever Hunter charged at Angle for a clothesline but Angle swept Hunter off his feet and dumped Triple H to the outside of the ring! Triple H lands hard on the outside on the mats with a thud as Angle takes a small break in the ring trying to recuperate. Angle quickly heads to the outside of the ring before he tries to ram Triple H back first into the barricade! Angle is successful as Hunter’s back hits the barricade rather hard. Angle drags Triple H back towards the ring but Triple H turns the tide of the match in the early going whenever he rams Angle shoulder first into the ring. Angle lets out a big yelp of pain as Triple H rolls Angle back into the ring. Hunter knows he has to capitalize as he throws Angle back over making another cover.

One…

Tw…

The second cover by Angle is broken up, as Angle is able to get his good shoulder up keeping the match going. Triple H watches Angle slowly get back onto his feet before Triple H runs off the ropes and takes down Angle with a chop block from behind! Angle falls down onto the mat grabbing at his leg as it seems Angle is taking too much of a beating here tonight in the early goings of the match. Hunter stands over the body of Angle pretty much teasing him as Angle is trying to defy the odds right now. Angle doesn’t let it get to him though as Hunter drags Angle back onto his feet. Triple H goes to Irish whip Angle off into the ropes but Angle ducks underneath a clothesline attempt from Triple H! Triple H turns around as Angle scoops Hunter up and hits the first German Suplex of the match! It put a bit of effort for Angle to hit the big German but Angle keeps the bridge as he gets his first cover of the night.

One…

Two…

Triple H kicks out with ease, as there is no way in hell that he is about to lose the match to a German Suplex.

Orton rolls over, as Jericho was able to kick out and keep the match going. Orton gets slowly back onto his feet before he drags Jericho back over towards him once again. Orton drags Jericho over to the turnbuckles in the corner but Jericho pushes Orton off of him! Orton quickly grabs Jericho throwing him down onto the mat with a scoop slam! Orton heads over to Jericho before dragging him up and hitting a Gutwrench elevated neck breaker as Jericho’s head collides with the mat Orton quickly rolls Jericho over on his side knowing that he has to cover Jericho if he wants to end the match right now.

JERICHO GETS A SHOULDER UP! Orton’s eyes almost pop out of his head in disbelief that Jericho was able to kick out. The replays show that Jericho barely got his shoulder up which keeps the move still deadly. Orton heads over to the corner teasing the fans that he is about to hit the Running Punt, as this is his second attempt at it! This time Orton kicks the ropes in fury trying to get Jericho to get back up onto his feet! Orton looks around the arena as he yells at Jericho to get up! Jericho slowly pulls himself up by pushing on the mat and as he turns around he sees Orton running at him. Jericho quickly moves out of the way before he trips up Orton with a drop toehold. Orton falls face first onto the mat. Jericho doesn’t have time to capitalize, as he simply needs to try and recover from that sickening neck breaker he took moments ago.

Jericho slowly starts inching towards the rope, as the ref has no choice but to count both men out for now.

Both Orton and Jericho meet in the middle of the ring before they both come to clubbing blows. Orton and Jericho both tangle up once again before Orton shoves Jericho off into the ropes! Orton comes charging at Jericho but Jericho gets his feet up which causes Orton to stumble out towards the middle of the ring. Jericho charges at Orton spinning around and hitting a big spinning neck breaker sending the champion falling down onto the mat! The fans look on as Jericho points towards the ropes as he charges off the ropes trying for the Lionsault once again and this time he successfully hits the Lionsault! Jericho rolls Orton over trying for another cover in hopes of taking the title home with him tonight.

Jericho walks over to Orton grabbing him by the legs as Jericho is trying to lock in the Walls of Jericho right here! However quickly Orton rolls through with a cradle on Jericho and the WWE champion grabs the tights looking desperate to take the title home with him now.

Jericho kicks out as Orton gets back onto his feet! Orton quickly walks over dragging Jericho off into the ropes before he tries to Irish whip Jericho off towards the ropes but Jericho counters and instead pulls Orton towards him hitting the Code Breaker! The fans go wild as Jericho grabs the legs of Orton throwing him over and locking in the Walls of Jericho! The fans are going nuts as Orton is wincing in pain trying to scratch and claw towards the ropes but it doesn’t seem as if Orton is going to be able to grab the ropes and keep the match going. Orton continues trying to crawl out towards the ropes and reach them but Jericho pulls Orton right back towards the middle of the ring.

The fans look on at Orton’s face which shows determination knowing that he’s got to let it all loose here if he stands a chance at retaining the title. Orton continues trying to crawl towards the ropes as he gets oh so close to grabbing them but Jericho finally pulls Orton back towards the middle of the ring! The ref asks Orton if he is going to give up and ORTON TAPS OUT right in the middle of the ring as we’ve crowned a new champion.

Howard Finkel: Here is your winner and the NEW WWE CHAMPION…. CHRIS JERICHO!!!

Match Length: 21 Minutes, 8 Seconds

Jericho falls down onto the mat clutching his face as he is coming to tears in the middle of the ring! Randy Orton has been defeated and it is all because of one man…Chris Jericho! The ref pulls Jericho up onto his feet as we see confetti fall from the top of the arena! Jericho is awarded the title as he is breaking down in tears before he climbs the top turnbuckle of each corner and holds the title high in the air as camera flashes are going off across the arena!

Jim Ross:
BY GAWD HE’S DONE IT KING! Chris Jericho came into WrestleMania and he won this one for the fans…for the Jerichoholics!

Jerry Lawler:
I must say I’ve never been the biggest fan of Chris Jericho but after that amazing performance he put on tonight he’s certainly earned my respect.

Jim Ross:
These two men put on one hell of a match to close out WrestleMania 23 and let me say that I will never as long as I live forget this night.

Jerry Lawler:
This in my opinion will go down, as one of the greatest WrestleMania’s to ever take place in history!

Jim Ross:
Well ladies and gentlemen we leave you with this great video package! As for me I’m Jim Ross and he’s Jerry Lawler! We’ll see you tomorrow night as the road to WrestleMania 24 in Washington, D.C. gets kicked off! Good night everybody.

**********

Well it's here.

Finally I've gotten my second WrestleMania up and dusted and damn does it feel good to be done lol. I first posted WrestleMania 22 actually two years ago and I am shocked that I have gotten this far. But of course with a big show comes a big break. Last WrestleMania I posted was mid July and I didn't come back until early August.

Well this year seeing as I'm going to be gone a bit in June I look to be booking once again in July but there is no set date. It's just going to be recaps anyways but still the fact of the matter is I'm wanting to and I'm taking a break from this thread.

Now of course I'll still be here patrolling the forums and doing my job. But I'm going to let the comments flood in for a bit if anybody actually wants to comment lol. Then I'll post a bit if I can find time about why I did some stuff, etc. and then pretty much it'll be a while to you see the thread. Anyways...it was great doing this and enjoy reading. Hope it turns out to be a good read as these past three months had been hell working on it.

Enjoy.

KOP, it looks absolutely immense. I think this show will probably be the recipient of the first review I've given to a BTB in some time.

edit - wow. Just realised it was posted a week ago, can't believe I didn't notice, nor can I believe no one has reviewed it yet.

Wow. I was just typing a crap load of news and notes and BAM. I hit some button on the keyboard and it closed the Internet. Wow. Why does this happen to me? But anyways...just thought I'd let you all know that I'm just posting an update here in the thread. I haven't got any WM reviews yet but I'm going to work on handing out some reviews so maybe I'll get some in.

Anyways since I lost the WM news and notes I'll simply post the PPV schedule with a few news and notes now.

First off there are a few changes to the WWE PPV schedule. Mainly of note is that WWE has retained the 14 PPV schedule. This means 14 PPV's per year. WWE sees that it worked good in 2006 and wants to continue it in 2007. However the only thing that could mess it up is the two week break between Judgment Day and One Night Stand. But WWE feels that Raw will take a heavy load towards ONS while Smackdown/ECW will take a lighter bear of matches seeing as they will be fresh off Judgment Day two weeks before. So really there is not much chaos going to take place.

Secondly the brand exclusive PPV's have been retained. Each brand will now have 4 PPV's each while Smackdown/ECW will share their four. Raw now has Backlash, the Great American Bash, Unforgiven, and Cyber Sunday. Smackdown/ECW sill share No Way Out, Judgment Day, No Mercy, and Armageddon. The only brand change in hosting PPV's will now be that Raw hosts the former SD! exclusive PPV in The Great American Bash.

Third WWE has changed it from the Big Four to the Big Six. The Big Four used to consist of The Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, and Survivor Series but now will also consist of One Night Stand and Night of Champions. This is to try and boost summer ratings leading into SummerSlam with One Night Stand featuring all extreme rules matches and Night of Champions having all nine titles defended.

Finally if you saw No Way Out will take place in San Juan, Puerto Rico next year. This will be the first PPV outside of the US (bar Canada) since early 2005. However this won't be the first PPV in Puerto Rico as WWE hosted the first ever and the only ever New Year's Revolution over in Puerto Rico. This will be used as a break to ALL of the WWE superstars before the road to WrestleMania takes place. NWO will be a Smackdown/ECW show but Raw will be on a House Show tour there as well

WWE.com News and Notes

Overall WrestleMania is thought to be a great success. Despite it not having the strong card like WrestleMania 22 did it is thought that having the 10 longer matches was a better plan than the 12 shorter matches. Overall it is looked upon as a success from creative.

The Rock was invited rather late to come to WrestleMania. He came to induct his father and grandfather into the Hall of Fame before in mid March WWE came up with the idea of him coming back onto Carlito's Cabana. The Rock kindly agreed and is now headed back off to Hollywood.

A lot of plans for WrestleMania were changed at the last moment but that was due to injury, etc.

It has been announced that the April 9th Raw from Bridgeport, Connecticut will now be a 3 hour Raw. It is thought that WWE will be holding it's Annual Draft despite it not taking place last year. However WWE did hold an Open Season event which saw many moves.

I'M BACK!!!

Well after a month break off from booking and writing, etc. I'd like for everybody to know that I'm back to booking. It was a great month as I took two trips out of state and spent a lot of time away from the forums. Summer is great to me always! But either way I'd like to go ahead and clear stuff up on how the thread is going to be done for now on.

First off most shows are going to be in recap form from now on. It's easier and just as effective as the script form is. Many people will agree on this and I am one. Secondly I've debated on whether or not to do Inter-Promotional PPV's for all of the PPV's. I'm going to stick to single brand PPV's for now but anything could change.

Other than that I'll go ahead and post the first week post WrestleMania results as nothing major is happening in the aftermath of WrestleMania (weird huh?) but either way here's the synopsis.

**********

Monday Night Raw Important Events
April 2, 2007
Dayton, Ohio

Raw kicked off with the NEW WWE Champion Chris Jericho making his way out to the ring. Jericho talked about how it's great to be the new WWE Champion, how he fought and overcame the odds, etc. Jericho continues to thank the fans for all of the support he's received until he gets interrupteed by FORMER WWE Champion Randy Orton. Orton comes down talking about how he lost his title and that it was a fluke. Orton says that he's waiting until the time is right for his rematch and that it will be under his conditions. He says that he's not going to be pressured into having to take his rematch tonight but that when the time is right he'll do what he feels is right. Orton looks at Jericho as Jericho looks on confused by what he means with the "time being right"

Jeff Hardy took on Matt Striker briefly which saw Hardy run through Striker despite Test trying to interfere. Hardy quickly won with the Swanton to get the win.

Eugene meets Cryme Tyme backstage and says that his picture he bought at WrestleMania last night has disappeared. Cryme Tyme says that they're sorry and that they'll replace it for a price of $150 dollars. Cryme Tyme hands Eugene a phony autograph signed picture of The Rock as Eugene hops along after he gives Cryme Tyme EVEN MORE MONEY! Cryme Tyme of course celebrates their new money that they have just received courtesy of Eugene. Charlie Haas wrestled Eugene later that night and proceeded to rip Eugene's picture up before saying that "his time is now"

Victoria is seen backstage sitting in the divas locker room as she is sitting quietly. She randomly starts yelling "Shut up" and says "Leave me alone" JR and King talk about how the former Women's champion is becoming even crazier than she was in the first place! Victoria later takes on Beth Phoenix in her rematch but gets DQ'd whenever she grabs the title and starts beating the hell out of Beth with it before yelling "I'll get you" repeatedly.

After the break Mr. McMahon comes down and says that once again it is time for a change here in the WWE. And that is why next week here on Monday Night Raw we are going to see the return of the Annual WWE Draft! Mr. McMahon says that not only that will take place but the naming of a new General Manager on Raw will also occur.

Armando Estrada and Umaga did not appear on Raw to sell the Casket Match from WrestleMania. Nobody knows where they have been all day and they have not been spotted at all backstage is what King and JR informs the fans.

Carlito says that since he didn't wrestle last night at WrestleMania 23 that tonight will be his WrestleMania. He calls out any random superstar and out comes John Cena. Carlito gets a bit of offense in but of course Cena runs right through Carlito hitting him with the F-U for the win.

The Golden Standards talked a bit about how they were discriminated at WrestleMania and talks about a bunch of things. They say that hopefully they will be drafted to a brand next week that is not as discrimintive as Raw is.

The main event sees Mr. McMahon book a big tag match pitting new WWE Champion Ric Flair team up with Chris Jericho to take on Triple H and Randy Orton. It's a random booked tag match but Mr. McMahon pits it as a "Last Time Match" seeing that all of these superstars could be gone next week. It ends in a No Contest when the ref has to break the brawl up but it doesn't stop at all. Jericho and Flair both head up the ramp together as Orton and HHH are left in the ring looking at one another as both know they are top contender's for the WWE title if they stay on Raw.

A quick video shows smaller names on Raw talking about the Draft next week. They all express their interest in heading to other brands but some say they don't want to leave their only brand they've been on since coming to WWE.

The Great Khali along with his manager Ranjin Singh debuted on TV. Khali rolled through Val Venis hitting a big Khali Bomb before pinning Venis with his foot. Impressive or what?

Quick Results:

Jeff Hardy def. Matt Striker
Beth Phoenix def. Victoria via DQ to retain the Women's title
Charlie Haas def. Eugene
The Great Khali def. Val Venis
John Cena def. Carlito
Chris Jericho and Ric Flair vs. Randy Orton and Triple H was a No Contest

ECW on Sci-Fi
Tuesday April 3, 2007
Fort Wayne, Indiana

Rob Van Dam cuts a promo about being the first new ECW champion under the WWE banner. RVD says that it's an honor to represent the brand that gave so much back to him and that he won't disappoint the ECW fans. Paul Heyman interrupts of course saying that he begs to differ and that he'll go to any degree to get rid of RVD as ECW champion ASAP! Heyman says that he's already sent out a talent search among the ECW talent to see who is "worthy enough" to take out RVD for the title. Heyman says that whether it's Nunzio or even Mr. Kennedy...someone will have that ECW title ASAP! Heyman then books RVD's first title defense tonight against Rodney Mack in an Extreme Rules Match!

Mr. Kennedy quickly rolled over Al Snow before expressing his hopes in getting the hell out of ECW. Kennedy says that he doesn't need Paul Heyman anymore (since Heyman gave the title shot to Mack instead of Kennedy) and that the deal is over!

Danny Doring's run through the ECW superstars continues as he defeats Balls Mahoney tonight despite Balls putting up a good fight towards the end.

Marcus Cor Von defeated Sandman after Sandman has some mis communication with the referee. Sandman grabbed the Singapore Cane ready to swing it at Cor Von before Sandman got ultimately angry and hit the referee with it! Sandman went wild before security pulled him away from the referee! The crowd popped big time for Sandman's actions before he turned around and was hit by the Pounce from Cor Von! The fans boo Cor Von as he looks down at Sandman apparently sending a message to the WWE that he is on the "prowl"

RVD defeated Rodney Mack after Long pulled Van Dam out of the ring! Van Dam dropped T-Lo with a hard right before Mack tried to pull RVD back into the ring. Instead Mack got met with a steel chair to the head and RVD quickly leaped over towards the top ropes hitting Mack with the Five Star Frog Splash to cover and get the win.

A bunch of ECW Originals such as Al Snow, Balls Mahoney, Tommy Dreamer, the FBI, Stevie Richards, Sabu, RVD, Sandman, and others expressed their interest in staying put on ECW. None really wanted to leave the brand at all and say that the Draft could only hurt ECW by breaking up Originals and also bringing in new "unwanted" talent quoted by the ECW originals!

Quick Results:

Mr. Kennedy def. Al Snow
Marcus Cor Von def. Sandman via DQ
Danny Doring def. Balls Mahoney
Rob Van Dam def. Rodney Mack in an Extreme Rules Match to retain the ECW Championship

Friday Night Smackdown
Friday April 6, 2007
Fort Wayne, Indiana

Edge and Christian kicked off Smackdown with Christian saying that he's come back for redemption. Christian says that he might not be here long (most likely I'll release him from the thread, etc.) but that he's wanting a piece of HBK ever since SummerSlam last year. HBK comes down pissed about being cost the title and talks about how Christian will have hell to pay. Smackdown GM JBL books Shawn Michaels in a match tonight against "The World's Strongest Man" Mark Henry. Edge and Christian support the decision as JBL awards them the night off.

The NEW Cruiserweight champion Paul London teamed with his partner Brian Kendrick to take on FORMER Cruiserweight Champion Jamie Noble and Chavo Guerrero. London got the pin on Guerrero following the London Calling as L and K celebrated for what could be the last time.

CM Punk defeated Kid Kash in quick fashion but Kash did put up a decent fight. Punk finished Kash off with the Anaconda Vice.

Rey Mysterio, the new holder of the MITB contract, defeated Kenny Dykstra. Dykstra tried his best to beat Mysterio but once again his "girlfriend of sorts" Ashley Massaro grabbed the MITB briefcase to throw to Mysterio but Dykstra instead swung and missed as Mysterio dropkicked him into the ropes for the 619!

A pissed off Finlay was in action as he defeated Shannon Moore and after the match he repeatedly beat Moore with the shillelagh.

Mark Henry rolled right through Shawn Michaels after Christian distracted the referee which allowed Edge to run in and Spear Michaels! Michaels fell down onto the mat as Henry hit HBK with a quick Body Splash for the cover.

In other news and notes, Batista talked about how he's already ran through everybody here on Smackdown. Kane came up and said that just because he beat him at WrestleMania doesn't mean that he "finished him off" Kane says that if he stays here on SD! next week that he wants his rematch.

An update on Kurt Angle was given in that said Angle will be out for a lengthy time. Nothing much was said but Angle could be out for a big period of time.

MVP met Rey Mysterio briefly backstage once again and said that no matter if he gets seperated from Rey in the Draft that he will TAKE the MITB briefcase no matter whether he's on Raw, Smackdown, or ECW! MVP talks himself up before he talks down on Rey.

Quick Results:

Brian Kendrick and Paul London def. Jamie Noble and Chavo Guerrero
CM Punk def. Kid Kash
Rey Mysterio def. Kenny Dykstra
Finlay def. Shannon Moore
Mark Henry def. Shawn Michaels


**********

Most likely I'll keep recaps something like that as it's easy but of course in the future most likely it will have a bit more info. Nothing really big was set to take place seeing as next week is the Draft and I didn't really want to kick off any feuds, etc.

So here's the deal....

I'm working on the Draft episode which is going to be in FULL. Probably one of my last full shows for a while. I'm not sure how I'm going to do PPV's yet but most likely they'll be in recap form. I'm really looking forward to the Draft episode as it's going to be big but the Supplemental Draft aftwards is going to be rather big too. This is going to be a big shakeup of superstars as the brands are going to change a lot most likely.

For the Supplemental Draft I'm going to do something like WWE does with updating their website. It's going to be a full 24 hours draft. Each hour at the top of the hour I'll post a pick and this will continue for one full day. What day it will be? Who knows. It all depends on what day I get the Raw up. But most likely I'll probably do it sometime either the same day Raw goes up or the day after. That way all thoughts on the Draft picks can be discussed, etc.

Either way enjoy the first week of things here and be looking for the 2007 Draft episode soon.

Man you have excellent work and I thought WrestleMania was awsome and I will try to get a review but I can't promise anything because I have been really busy lately. But I will try.

I feel like an ass man, I said I'd review Wrestlemania but I simply never had the time. I apologise. Glad to see you're back. I actually have a free weekend coming up, so I'll definitely try and hit you up with some feedback.

Yes, KOP is back, about to read all 3 shows you have posted and yes mate, recap is just as good as script form, if not better! Will try and get some feedback up in the next few days.

EDIT: Just a little update on the feedback, KOP. I have the reviews for SmackDown! and RAW done, now just gotta' get ECW done, I'll have it done by later today.

Heres the review for the 3 shows, as promised.

*****************************************

RAW Feedback


Pleased to see Jericho as the new WWE Champion, he deserves it. I knew that Randy Orton would interrupt him and I’m pleased to see he will get a rematch. Randy Orton was in character even though this was in recap calling the loss a fluke I’m curious as to what he means by “the time is right” but I’m excited to find out.

Nice win for Hardy, running through Striker, seemed a squash match? Not sure. I never knew Test was with Matt Striker.

Loved this segment with Cryme Tyme cheating the ‘simple’ Eugene outta’ more money! Hass ripping the picture up and saying ‘his time is now’ has me wondering what he means?

Wow, Victoria is turning crazy. Hope she doesn’t have to go hospital or sommit’ She then gets DQ’d against Beth hitting her with the belt and shouting “I’ll get you” Who is she talking about/to?

Ah, the draft is coming back, will be good to see who you draft where. Also, a new RAW General Manager, I wonder who it will be? Might be one of the McMahon’s but I think you’ll make it more unpredictable than that.

Nice little thing with Carlito saying ‘This will be his WrestleMania’ and then calling out a superstar, who is sadly John Cena. Carlito gets some offence but is basically jobbed Guess it’s a way to get Cena some momentum and get him more over.

I’m liking this storyline with Shelton and Elijah talking about how they are discriminated for being ‘black’. Seems like this is a little giveaway that they’re going to be drafted to a different show? I could be completely wrong.

“Pitting new WWE Champion Ric Flair team up with Chris Jericho” Little mistake I think Good match though with Jericho and Orton being able to continue their feud and I liked how Mr. McMahon called it a ‘last time match’ as any of them superstars could be drafted to ECW or SmackDown! Nice to see it end in a No Contest as nobody looks weak.

No, you’ve got Khali in your thread I hate him. He was in the main event with Val Venis? Oh, just realized that it was the tag match. Confused me there. Val jobs, no surprise to be honest.

~ Overall, a good RAW, KOP. I think you should make the recaps a little more lengthy. I struggled to review it as it was usually just a sentence, but keep up this good work. Also, you should have the main event as the last thing written, I was confused as it wasn’t in order.

SmackDown! Feedback


I see Christian is back, I wouldn’t release him if I were you, he is a good wrestler. I’m not sure why he wants to get Shawn Michaels, so could you fill me in? JBL as SmackDown! GM is awesome, if I haven’t told you already and I like how he gives Michaels a match against Mark Henry but gives the two heels ( Edge & Christian ) the night off.

Pleased that London is a champion and I’m pleased that London and Kendrick are still partners, hopefully they aren’t drafted as it fucked up their careers in real life. Pleased that London go the cover on Guerrero and not Noble, I like Noble more

Punk is on a undefeated run is he not? Good to see him pick up the win over Kash, who puts up some fight but it’s still basically a squash match.
Mysterio as Mr. Money In The Bank is good, not sure why Dykstra and Ashley are still together if she isn’t exactly his girlfriend, maybe you should make them girlfriend and boyfriend? It may add more credibility to the team. Pleased to see Mysterio pick up the win.

Finlay pissed = pain to his opponent, I don’t like Shannon Moore to be honest and I’m pleased Finlay beat him and then beat the living daylights out of him!

Didn’t expect Mark Henry to win if I’m honest, I guess I expected an appearance from Edge & Christian but I never expected it to cost HBK his match. This feud with HBK, Edge and Christian is really heating up and is gonna’ be spectacular, imo.

Batista saying he has beaten everyone on SmackDown! Gives me a feeling that maybe Batista is gonna’ be drafted to RAW or ECW. But, then again, if he stays he’ll have a match with Kane. The match with Kane should be awesome to be honest, as I enjoyed the one at WrestleMania.

Ah, Angle out for a long time L Not good, hope it’s a lie and he attacks someone or sommit’

Nice promo with MVP promising to take the MITB briefcase away from Mysterio whether he is on RAW, ECW or SmackDown. But I don’t think Rey is going to lose it, there’s a reason you gave it to him.

~ Overall, again a very good show, I always prefer SmackDown! Over RAW and this was no different, you have a lot of good things going on here, such as Edge, Christian and HBK’s little feud and MVP’s and Mysterio’s. Keep it up.


ECW Feedback


RVD as ECW Champion is good as I like RVD, RVD = ECW, imo. He cuts a decent promo how he is pleased etc, now we get to the good part, Heyman. Heyman wants him to lose the title, ASAP! I think a storyline is coming up with RVD having to put his title on the line every week, which is sommit’ I’m planning on doing in my thread sometime. Hopefully Kennedy is ECW Champion soon, as I love him as you can tell

I’m pleased Kennedy beat Al Snow and I like how he wants the hell out of ECW, I also like how he says he is pissed with Heyman for giving the title shot to Rodney Mack and not him! But I don’t get the deal is over bit, can you fill me in?

Balls Mahoney is his name, balls. Pleased to see he lost, get rid of him soon, plz.

Was totally obvious that RVD would retain but it still seemed a good match, with T-LO getting involved! Nice little shot to the head by the chair (I’m taking it it’s extreme rules?) And then the Five Star Frog Splash for the win!

Hopefully none of the mentioned are drafted from ECW and I doubt they will be, I can’t wait to see what talent you bring to ECW, but I kinda’ see Kennedy on his way out of ECW.

~ Overall, KOP, yet enough good show. Usually ECW is boring to watch IRL and boring to read in BTB’s but I enjoyed reading this. Keep up the good work, Kennedy for ECW Champ, plz. Also, change the color of the writing it’s too bloody hard to read it!
